AS THE WAR THAWS...

[When the imPorts open their comms, they will come face to face with an uncharacteristic image, ensuring that even imPorts who attempt to ignore broadcasts at large will see it. This is, after all, relevant to each and every imPort.

The image is nothing more than a black screen with white text superimposed on it: STATE OF NATIONAL EMERGENCY.

After a moment, the image will be quickly replaced by one of L. Chases, seated at her desk, hands folded in front of her. Her expression may be grim, but it is firm, and there is nothing but ferocity behind her stare.]


Attention all imPorts, [she starts off, voice crisp and clear.]

We are now in a state of national emergency. As of January 20th, the USSR has officially declared war on the United States, effectively endangering not only the people of America, but the world as a whole. In this time of need there is a strong chance we may have to call upon you, imPorts, to do your duty in protecting your own.

As a part of this declaration of war, the USSR has abducted approximately fifty imPorts, a number which may yet continue to grow. We do not yet know how this was accomplished, but you have our word that our intelligence is active and ready to uncover what form of technology could abduct you from afar.

We are currently in talks with foreign aid and the UN. Retaliation is a risky prospect, but I assure you, we will retaliate. That time draws near, and when it does, we will be asking for your assistance.

Until then, stay aware, alert, and cautious, imPorts. We cannot afford to lose any more of you, and more importantly, your fellows cannot afford it.

[And with that, her broadcast ends. There will be no replies.]

[well what do you know! convenient retroactive visions! that's useful!]

Oh! Just last night? You know, if you're going to tell us our future, it helps to do it before it becomes the past.

[what's that? taking out your frustrations on some anonymous person is pointless and juvenile? especially when they've said they don't have control of their visions? no it's fine, shut up]

[ So rude! ]

And what could you have done to stop an invisible enemy? One that came in the middle of the night and made them disappear without a trace? It isn't the kidnapping that you should be focusing on, but the rescue. And isn't what I saw telling in its own way?

I saw them disappear. No one physically took them. This is some form of teleportation.

[yeeeeah he is terrible im sorry :') ]

As if that was hard to work out. Teleportation is my specialty, with a little more advance warning we'd have come up with something. Though, as you said, it's moot now.

No. You couldn't have. This future is not something that could have been prevented. But how we deal with it, what we do from here can change things in a number of ways. You can blame me all you wish. Trust me, no one wishes they could have saved the day and foiled their plans more than I do. But the truth is, I have eyes where you and others do not.

I saw in my vision a long metal hallway and at the end of it, a slightly rusted metal door. This is what leads to the taken imPorts. I will be working alongside someone else who has a boosting effect with her power in hopes to see more about their location. That is all I can do.

["Couldn't have been prevented," huh? He's kind of glaring at his phone at that, but still...]

Look, I'm not blaming you. That is a good idea - concrete information about the present does us a lot more good than vague glimpses of the future.

With any luck, our try will garner excellent results.

You mentioned teleportation is your specialty. Is it something you've studied or is it a power you were given?

The former. I invented it.
