Diary of Ira Pike

October 19th, 1970

College Station, Texas

Looking back on it I must say that it was only the inclusion of myself with the mysteries of the world that I find the most tragic. Many night I spent wondering what had occurred that night. I spent time researching in the library. I looked through newspaper articles, and even took a trip to the library of congress. Nothing. Not a word of Chronos other activities. Not a word of the visions, the monsters that chased me and I cut down.

So I found myself believing that my mind had constructed the memory in my state of delusion and stress. But there they were. Those things. Those ‘Guyver Units’. The one I had began calling the Warrior Unit as I heard in the vision. The other I have no name for, so I called it the ‘Black Unit’. Not very creative, but it worked. I kept them secret just as my vision had told me.

I started exploring the units and, well, they could be space age paper weights for all I know. It took me time to get my head straight. So much information from that vision, it gave me nightmares. But slowly I started stepping back and drawing what I saw. Writing the words as I heard them.

I will not write it all. Should someone get this journal it would certainly verify my insanity. But should I shout ‘Guyver’ and have the will I know it will come. It has before. I took myself out in the wilderness many times to be alone and learn what it was I had become. The armor is not meant as a weapon. At least, not the normal kind. Control Armor is what I knew. Words empty without any substance to understand. The armor is an enhanced kind, making me quiet. Making me fast. Making me quick to react. Like an assassin, which I started calling myself. Assassin Guyver. Seemed appropriate.

For now though I have started to watch Chronos. Which is why I am here now, at Texas A&M. Maybe something will happen here. Chronos, she knew, held its main base in Japan but held strong monetary connections with many of the major colleges and universities in America. With Vietnam in the background now it seemed as though none were paying attention to what could be the real danger in this world. Communism, as despicable as it may be, is not a threat in comparison. And this whole civil rights thing is a quack. Just give them what they want already. They deserve it.

But I digress. This isn’t a journal of my political beliefs. I spend most of my time moving in and out of classes as though they had revolving doors in front of them. The remainder I spend studying or sleeping.

Perhaps more will come later.

Does this take place in the Warrior Guyver universe?
"October 19th, 1970"

There's your answer. Time line wise that puts her about the time Jason was born as her being an active Guyver. So yup this is GWOTG universe.

Heh heh, yeah Lament is a kind of rewrite of the origins of certain characters. Namely Greg, Ira, and that group.

Basically a much more fleshed out beginning for GWotG. Your old stories about the beginning was never really made much sense as far as their ages and how it was started. So this is good news.

I think this is a re-doing of how Greg becomes W'Kar. If you read the old stories you get the impression that W'Kar has only been active for a few years. Whereas this he may have been active in the 1970's. This is my guess, but I do know that W'kar did say Greg Lucas has been bonded to the unit for about 40 years.

Yeah give or take, exact dates will be released in the story itself. I've been considering splitting it into two parts for the simple reason that it's pretty big, and I'm taking my time with this one to make sure all dates and events go by as exact as I can figure them.

It's also taking time because I am putting a great deal of effort into the dialogue and characterization. There is a good deal of information and even more foreshadow in this story. I want people to pick apart all of the little hidden bits of info and find the details and answers to questions I never answered. Because of that, this is more of a project than just a random story.

I think we have all been reading the stories before becoming a member. I was reading the stories back in 1998.

That is good though. It will clear the confusion. Will you go back to your old stories and redo them?

I've debated doing that actually. The major concern I have is that it will deprive time from pushing the story ahead. I've personally always felt it's best to just let it roll, if you know what I mean. I'd rather make new, than rehash old stuff. Heck I'd have to reread them for some of the details.

If I had to, characters would be cut. Some plotlines would be trimmed out, names of certain things changed, a whole slew of things. Not enough to make it a brand new story or anything, but enough that it would severely change the appearance of it. For example the Pirate/Energy/Phantom Guyvers would probably be just Phantom. Probably would remove the Dark Unit, Assassin type 2 as it's vaguely purposeless in some ways, and drastically alter the background for the Black Units. Certain old characters like Darkness would be revisioned as well, and definitely Nano-Guyver would need a major change.

But to do all that would take alot of time, time I could devote to furthering the story instead.

So... it's a debate.

Agreed I was reading here in early 2001.

I am really excited by this small but steady impulse the site has been having recently. New stories are just around the corner.

I agree. One thing I have observed and it isn't even limited to fanfiction either, but if you start to redo your eariler stuff whether it was made 2 years ago or 12 years ago, you are still devoting time to re-create something already made whereas creating something new.

While I understand Sully's reason behind his, most people on the other hand, usually do it to make it 'perfect'. I fall under this category myself.

As far as your old stories, I agree with you. Just wondering.

WOW, Ira's alot older than I thought she was, Guyver unit does wonders :lol:

I like seeing Ira's mindset back in the day when she first became a guyver, spying on Chronos and questioning her own sanity.

Strangely for me I felt the story couldn't go forward as mine was without doing the re-write. Because simply it didn't work as it was and to me didn't feel like a Guyver story. But in the rewrite I've also moved the story along while filling in a LOT of missing gaps. For Allen he's to decide what gaps he wants to fill, what he wants to add and then is it worth it and if he leaves it behind how bad the story will be because of the wholes left in the plot.

For me it's being fun doing the re-write as I can add a lot to what is missing and as said before I've actually moved the story forward and given some characters a lot more story so they are actually characters. When I hit Meetings that too might be in line for some minor editing (when Kullnar meets Dibby), but thats another day and will worry about that then

It will be done when the time for it to be done is there. Some interpretation of a great writer or philosopher somewhere, I think. makes the waiting for it all the more worthwhile. :mrgreen:
