About this creation
2012 MocAthalon
Team Jigsaw

Category: Time Warp
Team: Team Jigsaw



Meet John. He's a well mannered teenager who enjoys model-making, South American music and quantum mechanics. He's been working on a lot of inventions in his family's basement, however he never finishes his ideas before the next ideas takes over. He doesn't have enough time for his inventions, or his model making! (His most prized possession is a bottled boat that he made when he was 14.) His latest and greatest invention is a time machine! So when we begin this story, John is in his laboratory, working on the atomic fission power supply for his time machine...




Suddenly and without warning, John's time machine whirs to life. Out steps John!




John: "Hi John, it's me, John!"




John: "Woah, are you me? I haven't finished the time machine yet! How did you get here?"




John's Mother: "John, have you had a drink this mor-oh my! There are two of you!"

John: "Don't worry, I can explain! I'm from the future! I've come to take John back with me!"




John: "I see you haven't finished Grumbletron 5.0 yet."

John: "5.0? Grumbletron has only exploded once!"

John: "So far!"




John: "So, do you want to come to the future? I can't wait to show you how much Dawes has grown with our new food formulas."

John: "Of course I want to come; that's why I'm making this time machine!"




John: "Let me just pack my essentials, and my bottled boat. I couldn't leave that behind."

John: "I would never leave it behind! While I wait, let me tell you about how great the future is..."




"...In the future the laboratory is much more complete, although there are still many more projects to work on..."




"...My personal task is recruiting - I travel to different instances of the past to bring more of us to the future!"




"...Because there are more of us, we have time to do all the little things we've always wanted to do! Frog John has made so much progress with painting that we ordered another four boxes of frog kits..."




"...Biologist John works on the growth formulas for Dawes..."




"...While Ecologist John maintains Dawe's water and light supplies and monitors her progress..."




"... Maraca John gets to play the maracas all day..."




"...Although he's starting to get on some our nerves..."




"...Ah, you've got your boat! We're creating quite a collection of them in the future, which we keep on the wall above the time machine..."

"...The time machine has a Grandfather Flux Moderator installed, in case you were wondering. It prevents ripples from the past from affecting the future, so you can leave here before finishing the time machine and it will still be finished in the future!"




"...We had to upgrade the fission generator to a fusion generator to meet the time machine's power requirements. It's such an elegant design (Thanks 55555!) that I'm afraid I might come back from the future's future to steal it from myself..."




"...But thankfully Grumbletron 5.0 will be there to protect me from myself! My future self, not me. Or you, my past self. Don't think about it too hard and you'll have a grand time in the future."


Notes:

I quite enjoy Science Fiction and time travel, especially a good paradox, so I was glad that there was a category for it in the MOCathalon. I hope this story made sense, and that it explained some of the details in the two models. There are numerous other changes between the past and future labs that I'll let you discover yourselves...

The final feature I'd like to show in this MOC is the ability for the two labs to combine, using TECHNIC connectors on the backs of the labs:





The two time machines line up, so you can see the labs from the perspective of Recruitment John. Unlike other time machines, I envisioned this one to operate like a temporal door, letting you walk from one point in time to another. From Recruitment John's point of view, he walked out of the lab and straight back into it at the same time.

Interesting idea. And temporal paradoxes always give me a headache when I think about them too much. Score of 4. ~ Chris.

Overwhelmed by the awesomeness! I really dig the white thing that appears to be "Dawes," no clue what it is supposed to be... But I like it! Great Job!

Fantastic! I love the use of the shield-holding piece from a Knights Kingdom figure as a control panel and the blue Bohrok eyes for the fusion generator.
