ETR #2


The reporter peered through the glass of a frost-covered case.

"And what's in here Doctor Maven?"

"Oh, that's Lieutenant Pierce."

The reporter paled. "What's left of him?"

"Oh, no! He's really all in there. He stepped on the enemies latest anti-personnel mine."

"Oh my God! What could do that?"

"It's called a Dimensional-inversion mine. It, quite literally I assure you, turns you inside out. It's one of the nastiest pieces of anti-personnel tech that we've come across so far. The enemy are becoming very proficient at protecting their boundaries, and also performing their land grab strategy."

    I think this may be an accurate description of what war is becoming, or will probably soon become. Good Job!

    Thank you! :D

    I was just playing about with ideas for nasty, high-tech anti-personnel/anti-mech mines and things. The induction mine came from our hob and, for some insane reason "The Fly" popped into my head, and I thought wouldn't it be nasty if you weaponised what happened to the first test subject? And so the D.I.Mine was born.
