Template was on her way out of the administration building when the school's primary sex-ed teacher matched course with her.

"Hey," said Binary, who was in transition from female to male. Hir voice cracked. "*AHEM* Excuse me. Will you be back before tomorrow? I'm supposed to give a presentation at the Venus Plus X symposium in San Francisco ten AM, their time."

"Yeah!" shouted Hickham, raising his arms and shaking his fists as the results from the election returns continued to come in. Responding cheers rang through the Structural Party hall. Objectively, Great Britain hadn't done badly in the Shilmek War, but the events had unnerved enough people to result in a vote of no confidence in the previous government and a call for elections. "Another win for our side!"

The party leader was a big man, much - but not all - of his size coming from a large amount of fat.

Even though it was a Friday night, my dad had scheduled an interview for me at this Halloween store chain that just opened up in our downtown area. Being a teenage boy, this was not ideal, as I wanted to go out with friends, but I told my dad I’d go. I threw some shoes on, and took the car to the Halloween store.

I could have told this story without all that background info, but she was visiting family, and catching up on everything related to them.

As short a time as a week ago, I thought everything was just as it should be. I was a young male in my junior year of high school, a strong member of our track and field team, and I was doing pretty darn well in my classes, only one B grade in the previous semester.

Fallout

This story is partly a catch-up with folks and events in the Masks universe following the War and partly the culmination of a subplot which has been brewing for several years in both real and story time. There will definitely be more on this in later stories.

"Why would someone say that?! I mean, yeah, Maldren and I are lovers, but so what?! We both fought to defend Earth!"

She was sitting in the office of President Sievers' assist Gompers, a few blocks from both the White House and the Capital. He had personally invited Energia to stop by later in the day as she was making ready to leave the awards ceremony.

Gompers paged through the folder on his desk until he found some loose cards. He selected one and handed it over the desk to the upset super.

"Could you do some narration, please?" said Schmidt, still recording as he walked at the rear with the camera, which now had the large, top-mounted lamp turned on. "I am not a veteran videographer, and wish to concentrate on this process."

Suddenly, Energia collapsed. Not because she had failed; because she had succeeded. There was Zeep, casually taking the load which had almost killed her. The President quickly moved to help the girl.

"Sorry to take so long," said Zeep, looking at Energia. He turned to the President. "I am limited to the speed of light in traveling."

He turned towards the trio of scientists.

"How's Moldaria doing?" I asked, tiredly, of both Gazer and the masterminds, once Rocker was back with us. Like most of us in this little task force I had created, he was wasted from fatigue, but exultant. Six times in six hours had stressed him to his superhuman limit, but each foray had been a major success.

He wasn't the only one feeling upbeat over our work. All of us were surprised at both how much need there was for it, and how much it was helping.

I take several deep breaths to clear my head as the smartly-dressed man looks at me with serious eyes. In all my life, I don’t think I’ve ever been as terrified as I am now…

"Congratulations!" said Brade, when she encountered the President the morning after the election.

"Thank you," said Sievers, with little enthusiasm.

"What's wrong?"

"Oh, she's just now realizing this means she has to keep working here," said Howers, with a laugh. A few of the others in the room gave tired laughs or chuckles.

Randy sighed and stretched as he entered the shower. These days, he was Template more than Randy. If he hadn't retired the Revolutionary he might even be spending more time as her than himself.

Myself, he thought, as he washed. Why is that pronoun so complicated for me?

"Some things carry over," Randy muttered, as he examined his bruises in the bathroom mirror of the island bungalow. "This would be one of them."

In a very real sense, they were actually Template's bruises.

The two men were long-time friends, though they were normally separated by an ocean and a continent. It wasn't often these days that the Guardsman - who was based in California - and the very British Walrus met in person. This was one of those times and they were putting it to good use.

"Ugh," said Energia, as she considered the problem one more time. Then, more loudly, "Anybody here able to help me with an electronics question?"

"I thought you were electrical," said Alex, smirking, as she looked away from the wide screen TV in the common area towards the young super.

Identity Crisis cover image

Before we begin, an important note about the tone of the story. I started it as a whimsical romp, a superhero action comedy with a TG twist. But along the way it became apparent to me that at its heart it's a coming of age story, with all of the wrinkles that entails.

Who is that adorable little boy who insists that spined raptors are appropriate riding animals??? What happens when Jericho learns of what nightmares haunt Caitlin in her waking hours that were born under the Australian sky?

I offer you, The Book of Darwin.
