2017 - Post Shifter Timeline 

Jack has always been an underachiever. Laid back, content with being passable, he spent his childhood getting into trouble with his best friend Paul Serene. The two were inseparable, often getting in trouble together and finding ways to make things complicated for the both of them. While Paul decided to move on with his life and attend college, Jack himself preferred to travel, spending most of his early twenties in Southeast Asia and visiting temples.

Jack is enhanced now with the ability to manipulate time. Weaker than Paul Serene, he has quickly gained control of his powers despite slowly succumbing to Chronon Syndrome. His symptoms are minor and he is in good control, however his body is reacting quickly to his illness. His anger and hatred for Paul Serene has kept him from asking help for almost a year, however as his symptoms have worsened, he's sought out the help of his former best friend and enemy.

ABILITIES

Time Vision
Jack is able to see into the future and see important objects that stand out in the time line. He can use this ability freely without wearing himself out.

Time Stop
Jack is able to manipulate the chronon field around objects and people to freeze them in time. The only way to avoid being frozen for this moment with no memory of what has occurred during it is by wearing anti-stutter technology or somehow possessing the innate ability to not be affected.The time stop is cast with the throw of a hand. A blue bubble forms around the affected area, an effect of the Chronons being frozen in place. The field will last for ten to fifteen seconds before collapsing. 

Time Dodge
Jack can cause a disruption in time to dash left, right, forward, or back to avoid a direct melee hit. He is able to do this three times before running out of energy and needing to recharge this ability. He cannot be hit while mid-dodge. He cannot fire a weapon while mid-dodge.

Time Rush
Jack can cause and sustain a disruption in time to run an extended length of time while everything else is frozen around him, allowing him to take cover and hide to confuse attackers or get behind them. During this rush, he can also break out of his fracture to melee attack and disable an enemy's Chronon gear to render them unable to move in a stutter or knock them out. He does not have time to kill in this moment, but he can get in a strong hit before he loses control. 

Time Shield
Jack is able to throw up a spherical shield around himself that is capable of deflecting bullets. The shield lasts for 30 seconds total if he maintains it. He can, however, drop the shield and throw it back up and use this time in increments instead. When the shield time has been depleted he must recharge it. It takes him approximately 3 minutes to be able to use the shield briefly again, and 5 before he is recharged fully.  If an enemy tries to breach the shield, they will be caught in the disrupted Chronon field and slow down, giving Jack time to shoot, run, or move.The shield does not move with Jack, an once he exits it, it falls.

(Power descriptions credit to Paul Serene)

Jack is engaged to Paul, finally, after almost thirty years of knowing one another. At first angry and hurt, Jack wanted nothing to do with Paul after the events of the Fracture, but slowly his feelings of love have crept back up. To say Jack ever had a crush on him is a stretch, but he always cared about Paul, and as time went on those feelings took a different term. Now he can safely say he needs him more than ever, and with his best friend finally back in his life, he finds handling his sickness easier and his life feels just a little more normal.

He loves him. He cares for him. It's all that matters.

On October 26th, less than a year after stopping the fracture, Jack asked Paul to marry him. Paul said yes.

  • "Did you ever see this coming? Did you ever think we'd be here? God, Jack, did you ever even think you'd come back to the States to begin with?" Paul takes a sharp left, nearly drifting as he does so. Someone is excited. "We'll both pick one. Because it will be for tomorrow, okay? I'll pick yours and you pick mine? That's traditional, right? I think it is, anyway." He's so nervous.

  • The slam makes Paul jump. He's nervous and giddy, but for good reason. His answer is as hurried as everything else has been for some time now tonight.

    "I don't know. I don't care. It's our choice, not theirs, and...I can't believe you asked me! Damn it, Jack, I thought you'd never want to! I've dreamed about this for years!" His voice is rising too, and his excitement is physical, verbal, and emotional. In short, he's a trainrweck, and happy about it.

  • "The courthouse...? No, the rings. Let's get the rings. Then we can get married tomorrow when the courthouse opens." Paul isn't helping. But he's so excited it's honestly adorable. Don't let him down, Jack.

  • "Let them hound me. Let them talk. I don't care, Jack." Paul is smitten. That much is clear. "Let's go. Let's do it. If we're going all in, if we're doing this now....let's do it right." He reaches out to take Jack's hands and give them both a firm squeeze. "I love you, I've always loved you, and that will not change. I don't know what else to say tonight. You've won this round."

  • "No. No, I...assumed I'd have to propose to you. A very long time from now. I...wow." He's surprised at how quickly this all came together. Pleased, too. It makes him feel good to know his affections are not just one-sided. Jack developed them differently, true. But in the end...does that even really matter?

    "But...Jack...I can't wear a plastic ring." He's grinning now, giddy with emotion. "Let me call a jeweler. They'll keep the store open late for us. I'll pay, of course. You can get one too if you want. I know that isn't very old-fashioned, though."

  • Is he crying? Yup. He's crying a little bit, looking shaken, terrified, and completely in love all at once. When Jack reveals the trashy little plastic ring, his first thought is Seriously? You didn't think to ask me for money or a credit card? You still could have surprised me that way. His second is Is that even going to fit on my finger? ANY of my fingers? His final one is I guess he doesn't know my ring size. That's it. Right.

    He holds out his hand, his lips twisting into a smile. His answer comes without hesitation.

    "Yes."

  • There's a lot to carry in, and Paul slips into helping Jack do so, nodding as he speaks and just accepting the changes to his life. He doesn't mind so much, and he can spare the space. His extravagant building is, after all, incredibly spacious. His penthouse itself is not the largest, but it was certainly a massive space for one man alone. Two will make it feel like home. A...very clean, very well-cut modern sort of home. That's not Jack's style, but it's going to have to be livable, because the idea of Paul settling for anything less at any period of his life is preposterous. He's never going to settle down. But this was accepted long ago.

    "I-" Suddenly, he's in a kiss. It takes him a moment to respond, but his eyes close and his body melds against Jack's habitually. It's the only person he'd ever show that kind of weakness towards. When it's over, there are a few words that don't register immediately. His eyes flicker open midway through them, but his expression only shifts a few seconds later. His hands are still lingering on Jack's hips. Abruptly shaken out of his stupor, he waits a few more beats of his own pulse before he speaks.

    "Did you...do you...?"

  • Paul spends his afternoon and evening reading over emails and reports sent in from his various labs. His life revolves very little around doing anything for pleasure anymore and very harshly around keeping Monarch moving as they approach 2021- D Day. Without a countermeasure, and with the inability to replicate the device or ask Will to build another, since the older Joyce destroyed his notes and would never be willing to have the conversation, Paul  is acutely aware of the need to make the entire Monarch building a functioning anti-stutter zone to protect as many people as possible. This, however, creates a larger problem. Food. Water. Resources. Like any apocalyptic scenario, these precious commodities WILL run out. Monarch cannot host more people than it can adequately grow and produce resources for, and that simply means that making do and cutting down numbers to keep the program selective are the only choices to survive the coming storm.

    That is...if the storm ever DOES hit. At this rate, it feels as if they may have bought themselves some much-needed time. Perhaps the events at the swimming hall managed to push doomsday back, even if just for a little while. But in the end, they know what waits for them when time stops. They know they'll keep on moving despite that fact. The choices they'll have to make and the sacrifices that will come are going to be enormous, and Paul is concerned about his own ability to function and continue to make rational choices in the face of total irrationality. In the end, once everything else is stripped away, he's...simply just a man.

    No more.

    No less.

    When Jack arrives home, the sound of the elevator makes him finally tear his eyes away from his screen. He's stood to walk, pace, and move documents several times, but by in large, he's spent the time in his office getting work done and catching up on what he's put off to reconnect with Jack. Despite Monarch largely being a paperless office, some things simply must be physical. The clutter is organized, however, into neat stacks. He's always been so methodical.

    "Yes. Unfortunately."

  • "Try to enjoy yourself. You can take my car if you want to. Next week we'll get you your own. You know the code to the box downstairs to get the key fob." The kiss means the world to him. It shows. He wishes their situation was more even. Paul adores Jack like a longtime lover, and he knows Jack only sees him as...well, what, exactly? Less than that, for sure. But he'll be patient. If he pushes, he might lose the chance he's waited his entire life for.

  • "Your every waking moment doesn't need to be with me. Maybe you should take some time for yourself today." Paul walks towards the table he's prone to keeping recent research on in the downstairs area of his penthouse and rummages through what he left there, trying to remember what he was thinking about at the time. He may not be a real scientist, and, like Hayden, may not have a PhD, but he's learned a lot by being active and hands-on in his own company's work. He had to be, if he wanted to pull all of this off.

    "It might help you."

""Yeah."
That's it. That's all Jack says. He watches Paul's reaction, and he's enjoying it, the bastard, before he pushes Paul back and gently tosses whatever he's carrying on the floor. He then gives Paul a wink, runs off for a bag, and then returns…"
