A POSSIBLE FUTURE OF FAIRLY ODDPARENTS
Whenever you have an efficient government you have a dictatorship. – Harry Truman
Disbelief in magic can force a poor soul into believing in government and business. – Tom Robbins
It began two years ago. Just two years.
It began in the city of Dimmsdale in southern California. A rich boy by the name of Remy Buxaplenty had planned to reveal his enemy (Timmy Turner’s) fairies to the public, thereby causing him to lose them. However, during the long, convoluted but doomed-to-fail plan, his own godparent appeared before a press conference. In front of the Governor of California.
Magic is powerful, but technology is just as potent. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic, in the words of Arthur Clarke. Within five minutes of the incident, footage had been filed deep into secret US archives and broadcast to every TV on Earth.
The United States, Russia, China and Iran looked hungrily at these new creatures. The US President initiated a plan to capture all fairies within the sphere of the United States, starting in Dimmsdale. There was one problem.
The Canadian Government, in co-operation with the UN’s special forces (wink, wink) evacuated the population of Dimmsdale, having stolen the plans by espionage. The US plan, codenamed ‘Operation Rushmore’ basically turned the US into a fascist state, with elections held of ‘indefinitely’, secret police roaming the streets and people liable with ‘intense CIA interrogation’ (aka, torture) if they had connections with magic.
The US declared that Canada had violated the peace. They demanded the return of Dimmsdale’s civilians and the ‘immediate cease’ of military actions from the UN.
NATO defensive pacts came into place. France and Britain sided (surprisingly) with Canada. An NATO meeting in Madrid forced the USA to leave, spearheaded by the British, French, Germans, Spanish and Italians. The members of the British Commonwealth, with the notable exception of India, threatened war if the Americans attacked Canada.
The US Government ordered an attack aimed at Toronto and Ottawa, but found its armed forces disintegrating. Various army factions handed the plans to London and Paris, and war broke out on 18th April 2008. The US collapsed in record time for a superpower, matched only by Imperial Russia.
The smoke cleared with US states amalgamating into New England, Texas, California, the Northern States and Alaska. America would stay ‘balkanised’ until further notice.
On 1st May 2008, Russia invaded Eastern Europe, China stormed into India (violating its neutrality), Iran steamrolled into Western-controlled Iraq, North Korea invaded her neighbour and Indonesia…stayed neutral.
The world was in flames.
The Earth split three ways, into Euro-Pacific Alliance (lead by the EU and British Commonwealth, based in London), the Eastern Confederation (lead by Russia, China, Iran and North Korea, based in Beijing) and the fairies (based in Fairy World, as one might expect).
The atomic bomb had been used twice, once on Volgograd, once on Hamburg. No one wanted to end intelligent life in the Solar System. The E.P.A. (not to be confused with the Environmental Protection Agency) had decided to despatch one kid and his fairies to the now almost inaccessible Fairy World.
That kid was Timmy Turner…
We shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and the oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender. – Winston Churchill.
Railfan and proud of it!
Recovering n00b. Seriously, what was I on in 2006-8?
