Wired

There was a way to fix his…miniature…problem! Haibara had mulled over the thought for days, and finally given it an A ok.

The solution: make Kudo-kun an artificial age-booster from APTX and a lot of expanding compacted metal. (How the metal worked was that when its stored energy was released, it would gradually grow and take on the shape of its surroundings. Eventually, it would set like malleable ice, and would expand and increase for as much as the surroundings required.) It would make him become part machine, but if he was willing to risk his humanity for the sake of being the proper age permanently, then that was fine.

Time to ask him the life-changing question, then.

However, there was another downside to this option – Haibara realised that the age booster wouldn't work for too long, about 3 days maximum, due to there being no electricity. So long wires were affixed to his shoulder blades to solve this dilemma. (Haibara had assured the formerly shrunken detective that his clothes would conceal his wiring.)

Currently, the newly restored Shinichi was … how would you put this for a part machine…charging? In a coma? It was both, yet it didn't mean either thing. The simple way to put it was that he had to be put to sleep for 12 hours while his body got used to its new mechanical sections.

When he woke, Conan (or rather Shinichi) didn't feel any more different to how he usually felt. Rolling on to his front, he realised there were thin cylindrical items attached to him, and found they were wires.

Wait, wires?! What the heck? Haibara had never said this would happen…

"I didn't figure that out until part way through the operation," was what she said when she explained why the wires were there. "So you wouldn't have known about it."

Little did Shinichi know, he had already begun to mutate. He was 10 percent machine currently, but soon that number would increase…

Jasmine Chow: As I read this story, I was reminded some what of Terry Pratchett, especially some descriptions of politics and economics. The sci-fic setting is quite intriguing. Writing style is quite lovely and grew on me slowly. I was also slightly reminded of Mark Twain, especially his book A Connecticut Ya...

DennisT: This is an excellent story by an author who writes very well. the only problem areas that I see relate to proofreading and editing. All of the stories by Vanessa are excellent, and I have read them all more than once. I had hoped that they would be better edited and proofread on this site, but it...

John Smith: This is what Sci Fi is all about. Reads like early Heinlein. In the style of Space Cadets. No esoteric problems..but good ol blaster and space action with a host of relatable characters

Dru83: This is a great story, mainly because of the uniqueness and variety of the characters. There's also several mini story lines occurring underneath the main plot. Some of the plot twists towards the end are unexpected and twist at your heart strings a bit. The punctuation and grammar could use some...

jaslynnash2015: I absolutely loved the story from beginning to end and I loved following each of the characters throughout their journey! Very captivating although there were a few grammar errors, but very captivating still! Can't wait for book 2!

cassandrab: Delightful SciFi (for a change)! I am not a SciFi fan: mostly the genre is far too dystopic for me. This book (written by a high-school friend) is, on the other hand, generally upbeat. Yes, Earth's future is threatened. But Earth has a chance to plan a response. And (spoiler alert) ultimately win...

Chris Rolfe: BOY!!! I sure love what Aer-Ki Jyr did with this series. IMHO he captured the essence of what stargate is all about. Thru out the Stargate stories Aer-Ki wrote Stevens and John Shepard some of the main characters in his stories are pursued by a corrupt I.O.A.. All the while Stevens is changing in...

mrh: This interesting take on the Harry Potter series fascinated me from line one on. I am in love with this tale and its characters and cannot wait to read the next chapter. I look forward to more soon.When can I expect the next chapter? I am so excited to read it!

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real. Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.
