Gravely feels the electricity rolling down the tunnel towards him. Kind of an interesting thing to be aware of, but when the hair on your body starts standing on end and the spaces between clothing and equipment start arcing with electricity, I guess you kind of notices these things.
A moment of clarity comes to Gravely. Electricity. Electricity and Magazines of Ammo. "Oh Crap!
Gravely looks like he is caught in a really bad dream sequence. A mix of sleep walking and an intangible physical reality, only Gravely is aware of.
A year or so ago, while Gravely was still with the P.A.B. He had been given an assignment to track down some paranormal activity. The only details available were "Electricity."
Gravely had prepared with insulated footwear and trading metal for plastic in almost everything. The metal firing pins from his rifle and pistol, though, he would not trade those out. The metal brass casings on his ammo could not be traded out either. Guess we was going to need to just avoid as much contact as possible. The Kevlar coated plating he wore in the flak vest and even in the leggings of his pants were heavy but they would not conduct electricity, so all good there.
Gravely had followed the various leads and signs. Scorch marks. Burnt wiring. Darkened Alley. Even found the remains of a few stray animals and birds that had gotten caught in a burst of electricity. No footprints. No other signs.
Reports had come in from various sources. A mugging thwarted. A hit man electrocuted. Neighborhood bully pacified. All the reports had had similiar features. A smallish human. Lots of blue lights and electric sparks. So Gravely found himself tailing a person that fit a discription of the old cartoon series "Static Shock".
A few days in the area and Gravely decided to draw out the annomaly. He identified a man as his mark and proceeded to mug the guy. About the point he was about to draw his gun, he felt the hairs on his body stand on end. Looking down and around himself, he realized that his entire body was arcing electricity. So much power that it dawned on Gravely, "Oh Crap
The man he was going to rob raced out of the alley way and Gravely was firmly rooted to the ground. @Signal
stood a smallish figure with a swirling storm of electricity, coalescing up and down his body. The only thoughts that crossed his mind was something about Popcorn. An odd childrens song about Popcorn Popping on the Apricot Tree. And then the fireworks and explosions.
Rounds were discharging from every magazine. Tiny fires were lighting up all around his body as shells exploded and the gunpowder trailed after electrical arcs and then lit on fire following the arcs. He was on fire and aflame and could even feel his muscles spasming from the amount of current going through his body.
Gravely's last remembered action was pulling out his badge, "Gravely. With the P.A.B.
" Then he collapsed and woke up hours later in a hospital somewhere he was not familiar with.
