Whoomph!!

The subway squealed to a stop as IB and Snap were jostled around in their seats, confusion on their faces. "Uh... IB, as much as I hate to say this, I think you picked the wrong route."
"I don't think so; I always get on this particular train. Maybe the schedule was a little messy today."
Confused mutters from a few other passengers distracted Snap for a second.
"Well, whatever the problem is, we stopped way too soon. I think I might just sue the conductor for assault and battery."
"Assault and battery?" IB's face contorted with suppressed laughter.
"Yeah. I hurt my knee banging it against the wall when we stopped - see? Assault and battery, plain and simple."
"Indeed. I think you had better put your head on straight before you march up there," IB said with a smirk.
Snap glanced up at him. After LW had called the IB, he and his younger companion had set off to LW's apartment near the West Point Laboratory on the east side of New York. He was having a problem with a runaway computer virus, and they seemed like the right pair for the job (so LW thought).
"It is, dum dum. Sometimes I just don't get why LW thinks you're a genius, 'cause you are most certainly not. Genius shmemius. Whatever."
"If you say so."
"I do. Now let's see if we can figure out why the train quit working. I mean, the sheer idiocy of the conductor to stop us in the middle of nowhere!"
"Well, we really don't know if it is the 'middle of nowhere' as you say."

As a matter of fact, it pretty much was.

When IB and Snap both glanced out the window, a wall of pitch blackness greeted them with a cold sneer.
Suddenly, the door was ripped off its hinges with a metallic screech, and chilly blue light filled the train car with a blinding radiance. "Woah!" Snap cried, worried excitement filling his chest. He frantically searched IB's face, but it was plastered with emotion; the surety and confidence that the older boy once exuded were replaced with fear and panic.
"Agh!!" IB cried as an invisible hand dragged him toward the doorway. His feet skidded on the floor as he tried to regain his balance, but his thin body flew out the train car like an empty tube of toothpaste - limp and prone to not being able to control one's direction. "Snap! Hold on!!"
And with that final statement, Snap heart a loud rushing sound, and he felt a tug in his stomach. "No, please... not me, too," he moaned. As he fell out of the car and crashed against the subway tunnel wall, he hurriedly lurched toward the train in a last-ditch effort to get back inside, but to no avail. "I'm dying," he thought, then he closed his eyes.

"The end draws near, eh?" a voice snorted. Snap opened one eye, then the other. "Aye, mates. I thought you'd never come. I've been expecting you."
"What the heck," Snap said under his breath. He brushed a bit of sand out of his hair, then sat up. Wait. Sand? Open-mouthed and looking quite confused and befuddled to the average bystander, he turned toward the unknown voice.
"Yes, you're in the desert, and you just got thrown from that portal behind you," a young man said, an unamused look on his face. He was just a few years older than Snap, and you might call him handsome except for a large scar on his forehead that distracted from his - strange to say the least - appearance. His dark black hair fell across his eyes as a gust of wind came blowing across the sweltering desert. "You may call me Bond. James Bond."
Snap noticed for the first time that IB was stirring a few feet away from him, facedown in the sand. "Why am I not surprised by the peculiarity of all these events? I guess I've gotten used to them," Snap muttered.
He glanced back up at the young man. "Bond, you say?"
"Mhm."
"I don't believe it. Who names their kid Bond?"
"James. James Bond."
"Fine."
The older boy leaned forward. He was sitting in a gaming chair, for heaven sakes. Go figure. "Actually, I'm Hammond Bourne. And yourself?"
"Just call me Snap."
"'Kay."
"By the way, you speak funny."
"I'm Irish, dude."
"Oh."

A little while later, when IB had "woken from his stupor", as Hammond called it, and the two boys were telling their story, hoping for an explanation or two, Hammond put up his hand. "Well now. Aye, I've been watching that portal since I got stuck in here a few days ago... I've tried to get back through, but all my efforts were in vain. Laddies, it's unfortunate," he snorted. "You'll never be able to return again."

Ever?

"How can that be? There's got to be a way out," IB cried. "Any logical thinker would suggest that if you found a way in, there would be a way out!"
"Not my rules. I've put every escape route to the test, and my fingers are practically worn to the bone trying to find an exit to this dreadful place."
Snap shook his head wearily. "Why did we even have to step on that train in the first place? Jeez Louise."
"Well, I'd better be getting back to the town with you two," Hammond mused. "We take turns watching the portal, ya see. After some of the newest arrivals came through, we figured that there might just be a few more on their way."
"Town? Where?" Snap said exasperatedly. "How come you didn't tell us this in the first place?"
"You were busy with your story; if I had interrupted, it would have been rude," Hammond replied with mock sincerity.
"Alright, cool it you two!" IB laughed.
"Well, if he'll take us back, I'll be just fine, buddy."
"That can be arranged," the Irish boy said. "You know how to drive?"

~Meanwhile, in LW's apartment~

I didn't know what to say. I didn't feel hunger. And thirst, you say? Well, I didn't feel that either. Whatever. Seemed like the life I was living was fake, but who knows. Oh, a little backstory. My friends, Gav and DR_06, were over at my apartment trying to help me stop a computer virus when everything went berserk. I mean EVERYTHING. The ceiling fan turned into a man-eating leopard, and DR_06 showed her hidden fighting skills as an old leopard-hunting maniac from her time in the jungles of Zimbabwe.

Not really.

Who knows - my thoughts were going wild in my cramped apartment after two days, and heck, it can get miserable if you don't even have a good book on your hands. Lemme tell you, a long novel really does make a big difference. I almost started a diary, as a matter of fact. Well... a journal sounds a bit more masculine; I almost started a journal.

Dear Diary.

Well, approximately 48 hours after I landed back in my apartment, I decided to go outside and get off my butt for a bit. Worrying about my friends wouldn't help me, and I really hadn't tried to figure out what was happening. I had a feeling that time was running out - ya know what I mean? I headed to the elevator in the hallway and made my way down to the lobby (my apartment was on the top floor of the little building).
I pushed open the two front doors and stepped out into the cool, fresh air. At least that's what I expected it to be. The air was flat and almost lifeless, as if someone had taken a giant syringe and said, "Here! Let me suck the life outta you!"
The sky was a bland gray, and all the trees lining the street were a yellowish-green, like a sticky candy wrapper you would find in an old trash can. I was confused. Who had drained all the color out of everything? Even the cars parked behind the apartment building were all shades of sickly brown, and the once-shiny bodies were rusted in various places. I glanced back up at the top floor where my little flat was, and gasped to see shattered windows and crawling vines pushing their way through the bricks.
"What the heck?"
I was about to turn away when I heard a voice behind me. "Who are you?"


And that concludes Chapter 3! I hope you liked it!
I am so sorry for the wait, guys! Our computer was in the shop for two weeks, so I couldn't write or get the model finished in time. I know I say this every time, but I'll try to crank out a few more chapters a bit quicker


Also: Credit to SnapStudios (otherwise known as just Snaptoit) for the awesome portal! I try not to use meshing - or whatever the term for bricks-on-bricks is
- in my models, but I think the portal deserves a big hand! It's a pretty cool model, don't ya think?

Anywho... have a great day, and God Bless!

Oh my.


Thanks so much bro!! I'm actually using the writing for a book... as the saying goes, why don'tcha just kill two birds with one stone?
Guitarman2

Which begs the question, how many birds could you possibly kill with one stone's throw?

Thanks my guy! I appreciate it

Hmmm... four if you throw it hard enough.

@LW, Ahhh....

@GM2, and that begs the question, what kind of bird, what kind of rock.
Guitarman2

But, if you use a magnetic stone and a railgun, and if the birds lined up just right.
You could probably kill 50. At least.

Guitarman2

That's an Idea, but you have to move the rock.
Now, you can do it via other things, (Like a railgun) but you still have to move it.
It also has to be rock shaped. So a bullet doesn't count.

Me: "Um... yeah, yeah I knew that. Sorta... you see, I knew it after I didn't know it."

Mr. N: "That sound logical enough, sorta."

Me: "Hey, we should stop, we are going to draw peoples attention away from this amazing chapter."

Mr. N: "Nah! We won't. Besides, who'd waist their time on some looser like you?"

Oh man! Killing birds! I'm in! Let's talk about those large solar farms out in California! The heat rays fry birds as they fly over, sending them plummeting to the ground, leaving behind beautiful trails of smoke! Those who help run the place call em streamers... or we could talk about windmills... slicing birds that dare attempt to fly through their massive spinning blades! Or we could also talk about thanksgiving... I do my part then...

Birds are always good target practice. I use them to shoot better in terraria
Guitarman2

@Greenflame24
Yup! As long as you make the rock move, it counts.
You can make it move via throwing it, or using something else.
Greenflame24
1 year ago
So what if I took some really big rocks, and fashioned them into windmill parts, and them put them together? Would that count?
Guitarman2
1 year ago
No, they have to still be slightly rock shaped.
Cliff_Guy404

They're good target practice because they're decently fast and then run away from the player.

Oh, and on the bird thing... could I stick a bunch of rocks on the windmill so that it sends em flying everywhere.?.? Hopefully killing a few of our feathered foes?

Wait a second... if we are to kill birds with (one) stone... then that probably means I could only put 1 rock on my windmill... that shot would have to be 1 in a 1,000,000...

@everyone talking about killing birds with stones What about if like, A boulder could be dropped from above onto several birds all clustered together?

@D_R06 What's wrong with magpies?

@CG404: But you can't just have a normal rifle. It goes against the principle of the thing.

@MrBrick: You have to instigate motion into said boulder. Via your own strength, or something else.
Guitarman2

If the bullet is rock shaped and not smooth.
Cliff_Guy404

That probably wouldn't be hard considering that rocks can sometimes work better in a musket or flintlock than actual musket balls
Guitarman2

Well then that would work.
Cliff_Guy404

It's because the actual ammunition would be to small for the gun. Which is the reason for the inaccuracy of guns at the time.

This is now my first presidential campaign, thank you for attending, and a big thanks to LW for hosting this. So lets began...

I, Greenflame24 and super excited to be running for president in the -12 party called the 'ROB' party... Ruthlessly-Obliterating-Birds. Now, I shall give my first speech.

"I, Greenflame24 make my first promise now. If I am indeed elected president, I shall make it my aim to allow the proper, and fair, killing of our feathered foes... and friends. One, I shall permit firearms to be carried and use against such flight full flappies. However, I shall not allow any sort of bullet to be permitted into the gun. Those are most certainly outlawed, and I will NOT let such an offense go unpunished. Second, I will allow the use of a One Multi Stone. What is a "One Multi Stone"? Well, you have ONE solid stone, yes, just one, and you have many birds to kill. As we all do, you want to kill as many as possible with that one stone. So, by some means or another, you smash that one stone, sending pieces flying in all directions, and hopefully failing many a bird. This IS, though some may disagree, killing at least two birds with one stone, if you happen to kill more than one. Let me explain my reasoning. If you had beforehand smashed the stone into pieces, and then launched them, that would be most certainly wrong; but, if the rock was divided as, or while being, it was launched, then it most certainly counts. This is where I stand, and this is where I shall stay. Who shall vote for me?"

Also, if you vote for me, I'll buy you the most expensive thing at the Dollar Tree...

I, LW, am indubitably excited to start running for the ABKC! (Anti Bird Killing Committee, if you really want to know.)

I, LW, will pass out free slingshots for EVERYONE! I have contacted all nearby armories to produce extra MP 3008's - otherwise known as the infamous German Sten gun; also known as the Volksmaschinenpistole - and crossbows. Yes, they're American armories. We will combat these bird-killers with lead! How do you fight fire? With a hose! No, no. With fire. Plain and simple: fire. Ha.

Just to let you know, I was speaking allegorically when I said "as the saying goes, why don'tcha just kill two birds with one stone?"
Guitarman is the perpetrator - death to ALL perpetrators!

There. How did I do it? *bites nails nervously*

HAMMERBORNE
1 year ago
@ian, so, um, lets see...

*clears throat*

Well, it all started when LW allegorically said: “as the saying goes, why don'tcha just kill two birds with one stone" and thus started a debate on the best way to kill birds.
Greenflame, seeing an opportunity to gain political power by using people’s morbid obsession with killing birds, began a campaign for presidency based around it. (Read comment seventy-four*)
LW, who is, apparently “a lover of poor little flappy birds", has started a counter campaign (as you can read in the eighty-fourth* comment from the top).

Oh no! I have competition... well... I actually expected it much sooner... anyways... what! I'm losing supporters, and getting double sides... com'n guys, make LW vice president or something
Anyways, speaking of jamming systems and what not... I wonder what would happen if you hooked the voting machine up to a portal while Snap Studios was getting pulled through! Hey Snap, you are voting for me right? Eh... well I hope so... anyways, I don't like the competition I'm getting from LW... so I now declare war! Who shall side with me! Ok... seeing as how most of you have known LW longer than I, and how I have no idea why any of you would choose such a loser as me... I expect to be fighting myself... but oh well... I still declare war! Oh, and if you do happen to join me, I'll give you free stuff from the Dollar General! What do ya say? Oh man... this is going nuts!

Ok, I've been gone doing other stuff... and am to lazy to check all the comments... so I'm just gunna sit back and enjoy a slice of banana bread...

#MeForPresident

Ok... maybe I'll take a peak at whats going on...

Oh! President for a month! I'm all in for that! Come on guys, who is gonna be the first one!?!?
Anyways, I might not be as responsive in this thread... a future president has lots of responsibilities... like studding for an upcoming SAT... and mowing the lawn...

Oh goodness. 130 comments already. ABOUT BIRDS. And presidents. Welp. Someone *cough cough* should make a model for presidential elections - which would be each month, of course. I vote for HB to create this model. *cough*

How about this. All of us who want to join the Distinguished Mecabricksers Society (All in favor of that name say ay.) Make a small part of the model.
Then we combine it to make the presidential Election Model!
As Ian_theMage is not participating, he can be the Third-Party person who posts the final model.

Yeah... I made up my own party... just because I didn't want to actually start a heated debate... though... if anyone is Communist I do hope they will come out and say, you know, we need to purge the evil from out land. Anyways, yeah, sounds great. When should we start working on our models... oh, and seeing as how Republican and Democrat have their Red and blue thing, I would personally suggest each party having their own color... "I CLAIM GREEN!!!!!!!"

So, what you need to do, is make a small model and a presidential speech.
Then, PM it to Ian_TheMage. He is our collaborator who is going to compile the models of all the people running.
And that's it!
Then, you just have to wait until everyone else inputs their campaign.

Anyways, I know we dismissed this... but its been a while... where is Operator011? He has been gone for a good while now... I'm starting to get concerned that he might have actually been a government agent and discovered the communistic leaders in our country, only to be captured and destroyed! Ok... probably not... but still... where did he go?

I had an idea about how this could work, we could set aside the first week of every month for election week, and the current president can publish a model for everyone to submit their campaign too. And I agree with Snap, the first five people get to run for president. At the end of election week, everyone votes and the winner is president of Mecabricks for a month! Also, you can only run once ever two months. What d'y'all think of that? So we could hold off this election til the first of September or something, this is just a suggestion.

Ok... so, I was wondering, what if its just the president who can only run every other month... or maybe the top two. I don't know, but I feel like, for at least right now, we might not have enough users in this thing. I could be wrong... also, we should make a rules post about this... so that users don't have to scroll through 200 comments to understand how it works.

P.S. Should the elected president also be able to pick a vice president? If we do that, we should probably make a rule that you can't pick the same vice president every time you are elected.

How bout this.
I'll get Ian to make a Rules model. And if we get 10 users, we'll proceed with the current plan. And we'll be able to elect a VP.
If we have under 10 users, we'll proceed with your plan, sound good?
