Welcome to Part 15 of "Document 13", a dystopian graphic novel I'm creating with my daughter. Seeing as last week's part went well in this community, perhaps I have found a new home for it!
If you want to read the rest first, see the links below the post to catch up.
The year is 2074, the world has been plunged into darkness. One girl, Sarah Doe, will learn the secrets of the dark forces that run the ruined world. With the help of a few friends, her family, and her own powers she will fight to return the world to an order not known since well before her birth. Will she succeed? Read to find out!
If you haven't read the other parts, go back and read them first! (Links are at the bottom).
Dr. Bureau’s office. Headmistress Matthews is impatiently tapping on the desk.
HM: I gave you a month, what do you have to show?
Dr: I used Sarah's DNA to track down her mother... At least I discovered that she is not in the clouds anymore. She could be dead or she could be unregistered. It doesn’t really matter but it did prove my hypothesis…
HM: Which is?
Dr: Sarah is a super soldier. She was bred in a lab by Party scientists.
HM: I remember your conspiracy theories about that program… Anyway, she’s a nightmare, having a super soldier does nothing for me if she’s impossible to discipline, and worse yet, impossible to kill.
Dr: I may be able to transfer it. I have isolated the sequences, I just need a few subjects.
HM: Transfer it? To anyone?
Dr: I don’t know for sure. You have a steady supply of orphans though. I’m sure you could spare a few. Females… I know your males are much too valuable.
HM: I do have a few troublemakers I could spare. But what do I get in return?
Dr: If I can transfer the powers to younger subjects there is a chance I could give it to older subjects as well.
HM: Ah, so I’ll be your guinea pig eventually. Will I be immortal?
Dr: That doesn’t appear to be the case. As I said during our last meeting, Sarah could burn or be shredded, or melted in acid. It is possible to die permanently. Sarah is aging normally, though it seems she reverted back to an earlier age when she died, so it’s possible her life span is virtually infinite. She could die of old age. The only way to know some of these things is to test. And I’d much rather test children first than you my dear benefactor.
HM: How long will these tests take?
Dr: Months? I should be able to see transfer results within weeks but it may take a while to determine if it creates real immortality… a whole lifetime, maybe more. With some disposable subjects I should at least be able to determine whether the regeneration and revival powers are transferrable.
HM: Fine, I’ll have some girls brought over in the morning. But if you aren't ready in two months I'm taking back what's left and you can dispose of Sarah however you can.
Love it? Hate it? I welcome any and all feedback!
