Papaya #20 with Pocky

Author: Regret
Rating: G
Challenge: Papaya #20 - You Remind Me Of Someone
Extras: Pocky
Word Count: 100
Summary: Hundreds of millions of miles out, and too long after, Paradigm sees a familiar face.
Notes: Not that I'm leaping around the timeline or anything... I'm so far forward now this is just a scene that's lived in my head for two or three years. O_o It's quite nice to have it down now.

Goddamn backwater planet, why she'd landed here he didn't know. Chasing after psycho-blue-eyes, she zigzagged across the universe and he could only follow. Calf-deep in grass, Paradigm glared around and wished her tracker signal would reappear.

Something caught his eye and made his jaw drop. A face that looked far too familiar. A face that shouldn't look familiar, not out here where only fools trod.

Green eyes, a laughing mouth. Cropped hair - only blond - too like him, but he was dead, twice over now.

Paradigm couldn't believe it.

That stranger, against all odds, was wearing Maxim's body.

Uh-oh. I imagine there will be trouble out of this-- but does this mean Maxim is proper dead? I hope not, I hope he's just back in a mainframe, because I love him. Nice tension in here.

Oh there'll certainly be trouble - although what kind I'm still a bit undecided on - and since it'll involve Kse, I can imagine it'll certainly hurt too.

And as for Maxim, well... Maybe not proper-dead. ;)

Maxim! But this can't be good if he's back in the mainframe again.

Precisely where Maxim is, is something that neither Paradigm nor Kse can entirely work out... and is that even Maxim? ;)

Uh-oh! Hopefully not-Maxim is going to play nice... :)

Aaah but maybe there's a little more to it than just Maxim's body... ;) (And if Kse gets involved, things'll probably turn nasty quite quickly... >_> )

Something really ominous about that last line. Can't wait to see what kind of trouble Paradigm gets into with this shady character in the picture.

There are times when I think Paradigm could get into trouble in an empty paper bag. >_>;; And Maxim's only ever made his life more difficult, so... XD;; *needs to think some about it beyond Kse's immediate reaction*
