The First Pendulum (Zed's Origin Story) - A Webseries by GeekyGamerZack

Hi, fans of Chromaicora Adventures, and welcome to The First Pendulum, the official origin story of Zed Starmute. From the very first episode, we see the potential of the intrepid individual as he deals with losing his past memories, meets Tad and Siren for the first time and even gains the ability to sightshift into another realm.

Discussions of the series will be handled in this separate discussion thread in order to avoid producing unnecessary clutter between posts. Anyway, it's time to present Log 01 of The First Pendulum!

The First Pendulum - Log 01:
Scene: Terra: Afternoon

We see a view of a busy street, with cars driving along the road and round-eared humans walking along the footpaths. We zoom in to a view of an unusually-tall young man with ginger buzz-cut hair, steely greyish-blue eyes and golden eyebrows. He trudges along, seemingly disoriented, as he rubs the side of his forehead with his right hand. He speaks with an Australian accent.

Man: No...it's not possible. It couldn't...nngh!

The young man seems to be slightly frustrated about something. A young woman with blonde hair in tightly-curled bangs notices him.

Man: My head...is...

Woman: Are you alright? Did you knock your head?

Man: Huh?

The young man takes his hand away from his forehead and examines it.

Man: Oh, no...I didn't knock it. It's just that...well...my memories are rapidly disappearing.

Woman: Your memories?

Man: Yes. Like...my mother...like, do I even have a mother? Or a father? I just don't know...

Woman: That seems pretty bad...do you want me to call you an ambulance?

Man: Pendulum...what is the pendulum...?

Woman: I'm gonna call for help.

The young woman pulls a mobile phone from her bag and dials a number, then places the earpiece next to her right ear. After a moment, she speaks.

Woman: Ambulance please.

Man: My name...it's Za-...uh...Za-...? What the...?!

Woman: Yeah, I have a young man with me who claims to be losing his memory, and I suspect he may have been hit over the hea-

The young woman pauses, and her eyes widen.

Woman: Sorry, I gotta go.

The young woman hangs up and slowly puts her phone in her bag without taking her eyes off the young man.

Man: Wait...what about the ambulance?

Woman: Y-Your hand...?

The young man looks at the back of his right hand. The mark of the multiverse glows on it with metallic-cyan light.

Man: How long has that been there...?

The young woman claps her hands to her mouth and muffles a scream. She pulls her now-shaking hands slightly down and manages to speak.

Woman: Y-Your eyes?!

We cut back to a view of the young man, whose eyes now glow with metallic-cyan light.

Man: What's wrong with them?

Woman: Are you an alien?! Like, seriously?!

A brown leather-gloved hand drops onto the young woman's right shoulder, which startles her. A blonde-haired, young-looking man with bright blue eyes is standing there, staring at the other young man.

Blue-Eyed Man: I suggest we move back.

Woman: What?! Who are you, and what is going on?!

Blue-Eyed Man: My name is Herikios, and you are about to witness a false awakening...a pretty major one at that.

Herikios gently pulls the young woman back.

Woman: Wait...doesn't he realise what's happening?

Herikios: Yes and no. He's...in a trance.

Man: The fruit of the overlay...?

Herikios: He helped me so very long ago. Now it is time for me to help him.

Woman: But...who is he?

The pattern of the multiverse appears beneath the young man's feet in metallic-cyan light.

Herikios: One day, he will be known as Zed. For now, though, his name is-

A column of metallic-cyan light erupts from the ground around "Zed". As it does so, a pulse emerges from it, shattering nearby windows and setting off alarms.

Woman: What the...?!

We cut to a view inside the column. "Zed's" eyes and mark still glow with metallic-cyan light.

"Zed": What's...going...YEAAAAAAAGH!

I can't believe how many hours I've spent reading your series! I don't read books or even manga all that often, so kudos to you @GeekyGamerZack! You should become a script-writer for games or cartoon series. Wink

@Ichigofan I set up a separate thread for discussions, y'know. Wink

I should've guessed that the chairperson of the "Zack is Zed Theorists' Club" would be hyped about this one! lol!

Having said that, it's highly unlikely that I'll become a fictional character of my own devising, no matter how much I (or the fans) want it to be so. I feel as though my catchphrase is "I am not Zed". Wink

The First Pendulum - Log 02:
Scene: Unknown Location: Early Morning

"Zed" awakens in an unfamiliar bed. He looks around the room, which seems as though it's from another time period.

"Zed's" thoughts: Did I travel back in time...?

Voice: You know, most people end up in their underwear the first time they sightshift.

"Zed": Hm?

"Zed" looks over at a nearby table, and sees a blonde-haired young man sitting in a chair. He is dressed in medieval-ish attire.

"Zed": Sightshift?

Man: Yeah, it's a rare ability that few people possess.

"Zed": What does it do?

Man: With it, we can peer through an intangible barrier into another realm.

"Zed": Wait...for real?!

Man: Oh yes. Although...

"Zed": What is it?

Man: Your entrance was...well, it was somewhat unexpected.

"Zed" sits up, pushes down his covers and swings his legs to the side of the bed, sitting comfortably. He continues to chat with the young man.

"Zed": Unexpected?

Man: Usually, when people sightshift, their eyes go all metallic-bluish, followed by sort of "rippling" through the barrier into the other realm. You, however, appeared in a column of light.

"Zed": I did?

Man: Oh yeah, it was quite the spectacle. Everyone was watching it!

"Zed": Well, I don't remember it.

Man: You...kind of fainted when you appeared. Luckily, I was there to catch you.

"Zed": Actually, I don't remember...anything.

The young man raises one eyebrow.

Man: Seriously?

"Zed": My past is a complete blank.

Man: Well, do you remember your name, at least?

"Zed": Za- Uh...Za- Um...no, sorry.

Man: No need to apologise. I'm...gonna call you Zander.

Zander: Zander? Hm...I like it!

Man: Cool. Oh, you can call me Tadpole. Tad! Um...I-I'm...Tad.

Zander: Nice to meet you, Tad.

Tad: Let me get you some stew.

Tad stands up and heads for the door. He stops and turns to face Zander.

Tad: Oh, there's something else.

Zander: Yeah?

Tad: Just before you fainted, you mentioned something about a "pendulum". Do you remember?

Zander: Pendulum...? Sorry, no.

Tad: I thought so.

Tad leaves the room. Zander notices the back of his right hand.

Zander: There's something about my hand...I can almost remember...

The mark begins to glow with metallic-cyan light. After a brief moment, it stops glowing, leaving no sign of being there.

Zander: Maybe that mark is a side-effect of sightshifting...?

Voice: What mark?

Zander looks at Tad, who stands with two wooden bowls.

Zander: I don't know...but I think I remember...something...

The First Pendulum - Log 03:
Scene: Umbel: Fantastic Realm: Late Morning

Zander and Tad walk through a marketplace in the town of Umbel. Many people seem to stare at Zander, whose main outfit consists of a dark grey hoodie jacket, silver-grey t-shirt and cargo shorts.

Zander: I feel as though people are staring at us.

Tad: They are.

Zander: But why?

Voice: Ah, Tad. It is good to see you, my friend.

A male elf with long, green hair walks up to Zander and Tad.

Tad: Oh, hey, Verdann.

Verdann: I wondered when you would return to this land.

Tad: Yeah, I've been really busy in my homeland.

Verdann looks at Zander, who seems to be trying to figure him out.

Verdann: And you must be a new arrival. I imagine you have many questions about this place...

Zander: You're a verdelv, right?

Verdann appears surprised.

Verdann: Well, I am impressed. Very few new arrivals know the true name of my people.

Zander: Yeah...though I have no idea how I know that.

Tad: Zander here sightshifted to this place yesterday evening. He was unconscious for fourteen hours.

Verdann: Is that significant?

Tad: Not sure. But his entrance was spectacular.

Verdann's eyes widen.

Verdann: This...unusually-attired human is the source of the beacon?!

Zander: Unusually-attired...?

Tad: Indeed.

Verdann: Then we must journey at once to the Umbel Guardian's home. Surely she will know of Zander's origin!

Tad: The Umbel Guardian?

Tad ponders for a moment.

Tad: It's worth a shot. Let's go! Zander, stay close to us. You're drawing attention to yourself, and that might not be a good thing.

Tad's thoughts: Especially if Skorc finds out...

Tad and Verdann begin walking. Zander follows behind, his long legs easily able to keep up with the others.

Scene: Guardian's Home: Umbel: Fantastic Realm: Late Morning

Zander, Tad and Verdann enter the home of the Umbel Guardian. They sit at a small, round table with an aqua-trimmed azure tablecloth draped over it.

Zander: This is nice.

Tad: You haven't seen ANYTHING yet, Zander!

Voice: Welcome, travellers from the realm adjacent! Welcome to this, the home of the Umbel Guardian!

An elderly woman with a hair bun is suddenly sitting on the opposite side of the table. Zander is surprised.

Zander: WHOA! How did you do that?!

Guardian: Ah, a good oracle never divulges the secret of her abilities.

Tad: Nice to see you again, Guardian.

Guardian: Ah, Tadpole! Still not grown into a frog, I see? EHEHEHEHEH!

Tad: Uh...yeah...

Verdann: The reason we are here today-

Guardian: No no, do not speak. In fact, you are barred from speaking for the rest of this visit!

Verdann appears disappointed. The Guardian examines Zander.

Guardian: Ah, it is you...the man with no past.

The Guardian looks into Zander's eyes, which causes him to look away.

Guardian: Yes, I see much mystery in you, young man. You found this realm without looking into it!

Tad: He didn't sightshift?! But-

Guardian: Tadpole, you know better than to speak while I work my magic.

Tad: Sorry.

Guardian: Now, I have peered into your mind and examined your heart, but...I am embarrassed to admit that not even I am able to glean much at all!

Zander appears surprised.

Guardian: This has only happened once before, many moons ago. The other individual-

The Guardian pauses.

Guardian: No no, this session is about you, one with hair of fire and essence of water. Hm...I see you waking up, breaking free of the shackles of fate. I see a mysterious object, a pendulum, and a key to your true potential. You also seem to have a strong link to the force of magic that permeates this place, so it would be prudent of you to learn to use it in some way. The pendulum-

The Guardian noisily guzzles a glass of water.

Guardian: My apologies. Talking leaves my throat parched. Now, the pendulum is closer than you may think, so find it, and never lose it. Understand?

Zander nods.

Guardian: See, Tadpole? This lad knows not to speak when I perform my magic!

Tad facepalms.

The First Pendulum - Log 05:
Scene: Surf and Dive Shop: Mundane Realm: Late Morning

A young woman with long, reddish-brown hair is examining some air cylinders in the local surf and dive shop. Tad walks into the shop, now wearing attire like that of our world.

Tad: Hey Siren, sorry I'm late!

The young woman stands up and turns to face Tad.

Siren: You were supposed to be here an hour ago.

Tad: I know, but I was helping someone.

Siren: Wait! Don't tell me. Um...let's see...

Siren focuses on Tad.

Siren: You were in the fantasy realm-

Tad: Fantastic realm.

Siren: Yeah, that too. Um...you were helping a new arrival named...Ted?

Tad: No, Zander. You are way off today! I'm just gonna tell you.

Siren: *Sigh* ...okay, shoot.

Tad: So this guy, Zander? He arrived in the fantastic realm through...unconventional means.

Siren: Meaning?

Tad: He didn't sightshift to get there.

Siren: Wait...for real?!

Tad: Oh yeah! He arrived in a column of light, of all things.

Siren: I don't believe it...

Tad: No, it's true, I swear!

Siren: No, I mean I envisioned a beacon of light when I read your mind.

Tad: Oh, you did, did you?

Siren: Anyway, please continue.

Tad: Okay, so he had this weird, glowing mark on his hand-

Siren: The circles and dots, you mean?

Tad: Yeah! Oh, you've seen it too.

Siren: No, but you said you've seen it before.

Tad: I did? Oh yeah...

Siren: Sorry for interrupting so much.

Tad: Nah, it's cool. Oh, and the best part?

Siren: Yeah?

Tad: Zander arrived fully-dressed. He wasn't in his underwear!

Siren appears surprised.

Siren: You mean to tell me that there's a guy in the fantastic realm...dressed like someone from ours?!

Tad: Yeah! The people in Umbel can't figure him out.

Siren: Well, you know what you have to do, right?

Tad: Um...

Siren: You, my friend, need to take him to buy some clothes.

Tad: Uh...isn't that YOUR job, Siren?

Siren: Usually, yes, but in case you hadn't figured it out yet, I can't sightshift. You, however, can.

Tad: Uh...okay. I better go and do that right now.

Siren: What?! But...your shift!

Tad: This guy needs help. For all we know, he could be stuck there!

Siren: I can't check all of this equipment alone!

Tad: Then call Jack. He knows all about that stuff.

Siren: I...fine. Go help that guy.

Tad: Will do.

Tad runs out of the shop. Siren whips her mobile phone out of her pocket and searches through her contacts.

Siren: If only I could visit that place...

Siren holds the phone up to her right ear.

Siren: Jack? It's Siren...fine, thanks for asking. And you...? Great. Listen, I need a favour...

The First Pendulum - Log 06:
Scene: Umbel: Fantastic Realm: Early Evening

Zander and Tad walk through the town square. Zander is now dressed in medieval-fantasy-inspired attire.

Zander: Uh...did we really need to get rid of my other clothes?

Tad: Well...

Zander: What?

Tad: While it's true that most people here know that another realm exists, they're led to believe that it's a lot like this place. That includes fashion.

Zander: Oh.

Tad: It's probably better to keep the mundane realm a secret from the people here. Oh, and vice-versa for people in the mundane realm.

Zander: No problem.

Zander sniffs the air.

Zander: Is this place near the ocean?

Tad: No...?

Zander: Oh. Weird, I can smell seawater.

Tad: Oh, that's probably me. I went for a surf earlier.

Zander: They have surfing here?

Tad: No, dude, in OUR realm.

Zander: Oh, right.

Tad: Don't feel bad. You're still getting used to this place.

Zander sighs.

Zander: I suppose I have to, since there's no way for me to get back.

Tad: What do you mean?

Zander: Well, I found out that only sightshifters can travel from this realm to the other, and...well...

Tad: You're not a sightshifter.

Zander: Correct.

Tad: Darn it, I hadn't even considered that.

Zander: Eh, it's fine. I get the impression that I wanted a sea change anyway.

A pulse of energy emerges from Zander's body, and his eyes glow with metallic-cyan light. After a moment, Zander's eyes return to normal.

Zander: That was weird...

Tad: Uh...Zander?

Zander: Yeah?

Tad: How do I put this delicately...eh, screw it. You sightshifted.

Zander: Wait...what?!

Tad: You sightshifted...the other way!

Zander: Seriously?! I can go back?!

Tad: Yeah! Well...you'll probably end up in the middle of nowhere, but-

Zander: Wait...what?!

Tad: The way sightshifting works is complicated. The first time you do it, you end up in the same part of the world in the other realm, but you leave a checkpoint of sorts in the original one. Every time you sightshift, you leave a marker in the previous realm that causes you to always return to that spot, no matter how far you travel in the current realm.

Zander: I think I get what you're saying. So when I sightshift to the mundane realm, and then I sightshift back here, I'll return to this exact spot?

Tad: Exactly! Now, this spot in the mundane realm is probably somewhere in the outback, but my checkpoint is on the east coast. You see the problem, right?

Zander: Yep. I'd be in the middle of the desert without food or water, and probably kilometres from the next town.

Tad: Or you could end up in a point of civilisation. We won't know unless you take the plunge.

Zander: Is that wise?

Tad: Yeah! You can always come back here if you need to.

Zander: So I could be stranded here anyway...

Tad: That's the worst case scenario. You couldn't return to the mundane realm, but at least you'd be able to survive.

Zander: Okay. What do I do?

Tad: Focus on what you saw during that moment.

Zander: Well, I know it's going to sound weird, but I saw the-

Zander shifts through the barrier, which ripples with metallic-cyan energy.

Tad: He did it! He actually did it!

Tad waits for Zander to return. After a brief moment, Zander ripples back.

Tad: Well?

Zander: Well, I was near a large city.

Tad: Wait...but the closest city to this spot in the mundane realm is-

Tad thinks for a moment.

Tad: Where exactly did you end up, dude?

Zander: On a beach.

Tad's thoughts: No, it couldn't be...

Tad: Okay, sightshift back to the mundane realm, then walk five paces away from the ocean.

Zander: What will that do?

Tad: I want to check something.

Zander: Uh...okay, here I go.

Zander ripples away. Tad waits a few seconds.

Tad: Okay, my turn.

Tad ripples through the barrier, his outfit changing into a black wetsuit with lime green trim. Tad's eyes widen.

Tad: No freaking way...

We cut to a view behind Tad. As the view pans to the right, we see Zander standing in his underwear, a pair of black boxer shorts.

Zander: Uh...hi.

Tad: We need to go.

Zander: We do?

Tad: Yeah. There's someone you need to meet.

Zander: Who?

Tad: A guy who knows more about sightshifting than I do. His name is Erik.

The First Pendulum - Log 07:
Scene: University: Mundane Realm: Late Morning

Erik stands at the front of a lecture hall dressed in a tweed suit and blue bowtie. He appears to be teaching a class. Tad and Zander walk in.

Erik: "And the spellcaster of a different walk"...does anyone have any idea what that could mean?

A male student with wavy, not-quite-shoulder-length hair and glasses raises his hand. He speaks with an Australian accent.

Student: I assume it means that he's a different kind of magic-user, one who casts spells through unconventional means.

Erik: Excellent observation, Jonathan.

Jonathan: I play a lot of RPGs.

Erik: Well, roleplayers often display vast imaginations.

The bell rings.

Erik: And that marks the end of today's lecture. Oh, be sure to read the copy of the novel you've each been provided, and I'll see you on Tuesday.

The students pack up their things and begin to leave. Erik notices Zander and Tad.

Erik: Jonathan!

Jonathan: Yes?

Erik: I must speak with you.

Jonathan: Okay.

Jonathan approaches Erik, followed by Tad and Zander.

Tad: Hey, dude!

Jonathan: Oh, what are you doing here?

Tad: Actually, Zander-

Tad gestures to Zander.

Tad: -and I are here to see your lecturer.

Jonathan: Oh. Uh, hi! Call me Jack.

Jack holds his hand out to Zander.

Zander: Oh, uh...Zander.

Zander shakes Jack's hand.

Jack: Oh, and this is Dr. Hollows.

Zander looks at Erik. An unfamiliar voice echoes in his mind.

Zander's thoughts: My name is Herikios, but my friends call me-

Erik: Erik Hollows, lecturer of the literary and performing arts.

Jack: He also teaches swordplay.

Zander looks at Erik.

Zander: Hi...uh...

Erik: Yes? What is it?

Zander: I get the feeling that I've seen you before...

Erik's thoughts: I sense it...the awakening has begun...

Erik: Are you a student here, Zander?

Zander: No, uh...at least I'm pretty sure...

Tad: Zander sightshifted from the fantastic realm.

Erik: He did, did he?

Erik's thoughts: How can that be possible...?

Tad: Yeah, but he didn't sightshift INTO it!

Jack: Hold on...I thought all sightshifters come from this realm.

Tad: Yeah, they do.

Jack: Then...how did Zander get there in the first place?

Voice: Get where?

A girl with curly blonde hair in a loose bun walks in. She speaks with an Australian accent

Jack: Oh, uh...Belle! What...uh...what are you doing here?!

Belle: I thought we were getting lunch after class.

Jack: Yes, but yours isn't finished yet!

Belle: Oh, we were rehearsing a play, but the lead had to go home. Gastro.

Jack: Oh, uh...what about the understudy?

Belle: Oh, she also had to leave.

Jack: Don't tell me she has gastro as well.

Belle: No, her boyfriend walked in with a single red rose, got onto one knee and said, "You are the love of my life. Will you marry me?" And...she said yes!

Jack: Aw...

Belle: And then they left for the airport, right then and there. Needless to say, we were all dismissed from class.

Belle looks at Zander.

Belle: Oh, who's your friend, Tad?

Tad: This is Zander, a guy I'm helping out.

Belle: Oh, nice to meet you.

Zander: Thanks. Nice to meet you too.

Belle: Thank you. You know, you're kind of cute...in a baby-faced sort of way.

Zander: I am?

Belle: Yeah! Do you wanna-

Jack grabs Belle's hand and starts pulling her away.

Jack: Okay, let's go get lunch.

Belle: What?! But...Zander and I were gonna exchange mobile numbers!

Jack: No you weren't.

Belle: Oh, you're such a stick-in-the-mud!

Tad widens his eyes.

Tad: Wow...

Zander: We couldn't exchange numbers anyway. My phone's completely bricked. Plus, it's in your house in the fantastic realm.

Tad: True...oh crap! I hope Norbert doesn't see it!

Zander: Norbert?

Tad: A gnome in my adventuring party. He's also my roommate there.

Zander: Oh.

Tad: Then again, he doesn't go through my belongings.

***

A male gnome with blue hair opens drawers in Tad's home. He has the same voice as Brocc, Furbendink and Sven.

Norbert: Underwear...books...busted smartphone...wow, Tad keeps a lot of useless junk in his drawers...

***

Erik: It matters not how Zander arrived there. What's important is that he is now a sightshifter, and he needs someone to guide him. Tad, you will be his guide in this endeavour.

Tad: Okay then.

Zander: Good, 'cause I need to get back there and find out more about that pendulum.

Erik: How does he know of the pendulum...?

Erik: I know where it is.

Zander: You do?!

Tad: Where is it?

Erik: It is here, in the mundane realm. Its current position is...brine.

Zander: Brine? So it's in the ocean?

Tad: Do you know where, Erik?

Erik: Try the cove near the city.

Tad: Great! Zander? You should go to this place this afternoon.

Tad hands Zander a business card. Zander examines it.

Zander: A surf and dive shop?

Tad: Yeah! Ask for Siren, and say you want to take a scuba course. Oh, and tell her I sent you.

Zander: Really?

Tad: Yeah! I'll pay for the course.

Zander: You'd really do that for me?!

Tad: Hey, if it helps you find the pendant...

Zander: Thank you.

Tad: I gotta go, but look for Belle and Jack in the campus café. They'll give you a lift.

Zander: Thanks.

Tad: Later, Erik.

Tad leaves. Zander turns to face Erik.

Zander: I better go. Have a good day.

Erik: To you as well.

Zander raises his hand, then turns to leave.

Erik: Zander?

Zander looks at Erik.

Zander: Yeah?

Erik: We will meet again.

Zander: Not a problem.

Zander leaves the classroom.

Erik: It seems like only yesterday that I met him...but he still has much growing to do before he meets me properly.
