Summary of Video
In this our final surveillance video, the youth escape the shards of the Continuum. Cindy and Gregory have found their friends, bringing them back to the well where the Dismantler first pushed Ace. Ace is still holding on inside this well, on the edge between our dimension and the Between Zone. The youth do not know how to get her out, but Corina (an HQI agent who recently vanished into the Between Zone) appears through the ether and pushes each of them back to the safety of the present moment.
We have been wondering where Corina went. Siegfried, her project partner with the Eyes of Time, would never tell us. “She’s on her own assignment,” he would say. Now we learn that she’s been in the Between Zone this whole time! Aside from the grievous breach of protocol, this represents a fantastic breakthrough in Eye technology potential. Until now, we have only been able to sustain small-scale and erratic excursions into the Between Zone.
How did she do it?
Well, the fact she left Siegfried behind might be a clue. We all know he is a difficult person for anyone to get along with, but Corina was never one to completely abandon someone for a difficulty personality. She is more flighty than she holds grudges, and she only flies if she has something worth flying to. Maybe, she had an incentive…to use the Eye and propel into a one-way trip beyond our dimension.
Anyhow, it’s not like she’s pioneered a space in the Between Zone enough that she believes it safe for the kids. She takes great pains in this video to ensure that they remain in their own dimension, in their own time. This makes us believe that whatever she’s out there to get, it’s for her alone.
Our agents have unearthed one clue as to what Corina might be pursuing…hiding in plain sight. But we’re still not entirely sure what it means. We want all agents to confer on this information, and perhaps with your interpretations can help us understand. Take a look at the comments on the kids’ blog, where we hear of Corina’s obsession with a certain Library–spurred, it seems, by her tenure in the Teen Time Force.
And what about the Youth?
We realize that, although our surveillance followed the youth, we have neglected them almost entirely in these reports. We do not think they are relevant or important, apparently. Yet they were the ones who broke the Eye, and time. They were the ones for whom this Eye was made. They were the ones who endured the insanity of our history, and who almost fell into the Between Zone trying to get back into the present moment.
Why do we ignore them, acting as if they are props for the HQI’s intrigue and theory? We should know better. As a first-contact dimension, we are often treated patronizingly by the SEA because we ‘don’t know enough’ about how the multiverse ‘really works.’ Yet we know what we have to offer, and are proving it: raising an enormous challenge for the Caretakers and Dismantlers both…so much so, that they have had to resort to clandestine maneuvers just to subvert our authority!
Well, just as we have caught the Caretakers and Dismantlers red handed, maybe we should not underestimate the youth either. Indeed, they recently dislodged Siegfried from this dimension (albeit accidentally, and with Caretaker help), and now they are running the Eyes of Time company as their own.
