Title: A Paradox of Revenge
Author: Sheri aka kittens
Roswell_is_hot⊕hazleton.net


All Eps, but specifics from White Room, EOTW, and Departure.
Category: M/L mostly, CC and some slightly UC, but CC HEA in the end.
Summary: Liz connects with the granolith and learns some interesting things. Then plots revenge. **For Gerbil Haters!!!!!
Silly me forgot-ned the Disclaimer: Don't own Roswell, yada, yada, yoda.

Starts at the end of Departure, after Tess blasts off. (Ding Dong the Bitch is Gone, LOL)

Part 1

Liz's mind was working overtime. If the granolith way a one-way ticket back to Antar then why would Kivar want it so bad??? Why would he need it at all??? It'd be useless to him, he's already on Antar. And why were all the other leaders so pissed that Max didn't hand it over??? Something's not right about the whole thing. That's what the translation said but?.. what if it was altered before we found it?? What if Tess changed it to suit her needs??? What if even she didn't understand all of it, and overlooked something big, like the granolith is? something else. I don't' believe that Future Max would have said it was powerful, if it was just a rocket. And how do you turn a simple rocket into a time machine??? What if?

Liz looked back up to the pod chamber and then back to the group.
Maria took note of this and asked.." What's going on in that genius head of yours? I know that look." This caused everyone to turn and look at Liz, but she had turned back to the pod chamber again, and then just as suddenly took off running up the mountain.
Max not willing to let her run away from him again, albeit in the opposite direction this time, starts to go after her, but Maria's hand on him arm stops him, signaling she'll go, and that Liz needs some time. Maria then runs off after her yelling "What are you doing? Liz?? Clue me in here babe."

Liz yelled back" Inventory"

Kyle confused yells " Inventory?? What the hell are you talking about Parker?? "

"I have to fix this."

"Parker will you stop for a minute your rambling is starting to sound like Maria's" Michael not liking Maria running head first into danger, was already on his way up the mountain.

Maria stops and turns around "Hey, watch it SpaceBoy???" Then she starts her way back to Liz, and comments about her last statement. "But Liz we don't have the granolith anymore"

By this time Michael caught up to Maria and grabs her arms, turning her towards his chest. "You know what she's talking about don't you Maria?? Tell me"

"No can do, I promised. Anyways I think she'll be explaining herself once she's done doing whatever inventory means."

Liz reaches the chamber. The door's still open, and she hurries in, not even taking the care for her own safety to see if there's anything still falling. Once she reaches the granolith she runs her hands down the wall where the control panel is. There was a bright flash and the walls started to glow.
She started receiving flashes. The granolith was not only a great source of power, but of information as well. She learned all about the hybrids, their past and their purpose here. She learned about human/hybrid relationships, and was shocked. And because of Future Max's alterations, it also encompassed future knowledge. An idea started forming in her head, she just hoped she could convince everyone else. And maybe even herself a little.

But to everyone else she had vanished, and the room started shaking. The walls started to glow and morphing shape. It expanded in size, and tables and chairs appeared. On the wall a screen appeared, showing the Earth from Orbit.

She reappeared and they tried to reach her but there was an invisible force field up. Once she let go, she collapsed and everything stopped. The others quickly gathered around her and Max gently picked her up and carried her out to the cars. All the while thinking that this wasn't how he planned on holding his angel in his arms again.

When she woke up everyone was awaiting her explanation. With all eyes on her, and in a commanding voice, leaving no room for opposition, "We can fix this, but I'll need all of your help. And I don't want to hear one complaint. For this to work you'll need to do exactly as I say." And then a little softer, " As uncomfortable as that may be for some of us."

Part 2-

"ARE YOU INSANE??????" Kyle screamed in frustration, and disbelief of what Liz was asking of them.

"You already asked her that." Michael butted in, only further irking Kyle.

"Shut up Michael, you don't have to do anything, you already completed this mission, ahead of time. All you have to do is sit back, while the rest of us…. UUGGG I can't even say it. Again, Liz are you insane??? Are you sure that thing didn't fry your brains or something??? You've never done anything like this…." He paused and then much softer added "before." Realization dawning on him, he turned and grabbed the doorway. "Oh my god!!! You've been trying to prevent this all along haven't you??? But why is it always me you ask to do these crazy things?? I thought Max was going to kill me the last time, but this….. FOR CRYING OUT LOUD."

"Kyle, calm down. I think I could pull this off without…., but I'll still need you to back Maria and I up, especially the 180 pounds of Roman Wrestler. It would just be more… efficient. And Kyle you also have to remember, Isabel still has to agree."

Isabel was curled up on the couch with her knees folded to her chest. All eyes turned towards her, and she slowly lifted her head up to look back at them. "Hey, I'm not the only one that needs to agree. Liz still hasn't said she'd go through with it either."

"Liz???" Max asked hesitantly, knowing that they weren't on good terms right now, and realizing it was all his fault.

"The way I look at it, none of what we do is going to matter, just ask yourself, How much do you want revenge??? And if that still doesn't sound like it's worth it, then do it for Alex."

"But what if you're wrong Liz.??? How do you know this will work??" Michael was still not liking this plan, especially since it would entail putting Maria in danger.

"I just feel it. You'll just have to trust my intuition." Liz was having a hard time putting all the stuff she just knew to be true into words.

Kyle still looking for a way out of this, "You're not sounding very rational right now. What if your intuition is wrong??"

Defending Liz, Max replies "Liz's intuition has always been right. She was right to include Maria, Alex and the Sheriff. She was right about Topolski and Pierce. She always knew something wasn't right about Nasedo & Tess from day one. She knew Alex was murdered, even with all the proof against her. She's always been right, even if we haven't always listened or agreed. She can just sense things about people, its like she can feel when they're not who they appear to be. It's like…. " he stops searching for the right words, that are dangling on the tip of his tongue.

Isabel, quiet up until now butts in "She can sense the evil within." That sends a shock wave through the group.

"We should trust her judgment. If she says this is what needs to be done to fix this mess, then this is what we do. Like Liz said, not one complaint." Max again taking command.

"Easy for you to say. You have no reason to complain. al feura." You can always rely on Kyle's sarcasm when it comes to Max giving orders.

"I'll always have your back babe, but I'm gonna need some time to process."

*bounce* Part 3

Everyone had decided to go along with the plan, all preparations had been made and the day had finally come to put it into action.

"We're ready whenever you are."
"Liz I still think we should come along, what if you need us."
"You're already there. And the answer is still no. The risk for you 3 is too great. Us not being there is actually going to be to our advantage, regardless of the reason we weren't in the first place." Liz and Max slowly walked over to join the rest of the gang in the granolith chamber.

Kyle saw them approaching, "Let's get this show on the road. I have an encounter with the twilight zone awaiting."

Max Michael and Iz joined their powers together and touched the control panel on the wall of the granolith chamber. The granolith activated and Liz, Maria and Kyle placed their hands on it. They were teleported into the dome. It started glowing, the humming was increasing, the whole cave started to shake, and then after it seemed that it wasn't going to be able to take any more, they vanished.

Max & Michael immediately took off running towards the screen on the wall with the Earth in view.

"How do we change the channel on this thing??"
"How am I supposed to know, Liz just said we'd be able to see it, in case anything went wrong".

"Guys, I think she only meant IF something went wrong that we'd see it. I think she has to send a signal in order for us to receive one."

"You could have mentioned that a bit sooner Iz. I wouldn't have let Maria go if…."

"I think that was the whole point."

*bounce* Part 4

There was a bright flash, and a thunderous boom. Liz, Maria, & Kyle looked around. They appeared to be in the right place, but was it the right time?

"Great you placed us in a morgue."

"Kyle keep it down." Maria said while slapping him upside the head.

"This was the only room without video cameras, and not under close guard, and you know it. Now let's get going, we don't have much time." Liz said taking charge.

Mumbling to Kyle as she passed, "Apparently you slept through that little detail, little bro."

They proceeded down the corridor and into the control room. They took note of where everyone was, and then proceeded to immobilize all of them. After they had taken the facility, they could then get down to business.

They opened the door to their final destination. Liz didn't want to go in, but knew she had to.

"What is the meaning of this? Guards!!! "

"You can yell all you want Pierce, nobody is gonna come. None of your men can help you."

"Kyle just go untie Max." Liz walked over and placed her hand on Pierces's shoulder. And looking directly into his eyes said, "Now, you and I have things to discuss. First were just going to talk, then I'm going to propose a deal. That should be mutually beneficial for all parties."

Max was a still a little out of it, because of the meds they had given him, but he always kept Liz in sight. Afraid that she'd disappear. Afraid that he was hallucinating again.

Liz took charge of the discussion. "Ever here the saying, if we are the only intelligent life forms in the entire universe, then it's an incredible waste of space."

"Yea but..." Pierce was interrupted by Kyle shoving him down onto the make shift bed.
"Just sit and let the lady talk. She's asking the questions now."

"And you think I'm going to answer them?"

Snickering Kyle walks out of the room.


"Do you believe there are other life forms out there??"
"Yes."
"Do you believe that they have the capability to travel through space? To Earth??"
"Yes."
"Is that speculation or fact, you're basing that on."
"Fact."
"Now here's a bit of a grey area, how many do you think there are?"
"What kinda question is that??"
"Well do you think there is just one race of aliens, or that there are several? A thousand? How many would you hazard to guess??"
"One."
"Just one. Still sounds like a lot of space. Again is that speculation or fact. How can you be so certain that if there's one that there aren't more.??"

"Because our records indicate…." He paused not knowing why he was even going along with this, but still not wanting to reveal nation secrets.

"What was that??? Couldn't hear what you said." Kyle butted in from the hallway, where he was obviously eavesdropping.

"Our records indicate that there is only one."

"Your records are wrong" Kyle shut up upon seeing the look Liz was throwing at him for interrupting.

"Moving on. Now about this ONE alien race out there. Why do you think they're here??"
"To take over the planet."
"Couldn't they be, Oh I don't know, peaceful??"
"No."
"And nothing could change your mind about that?? I can't change your mind about that??"
"No."

"Do you always see everything so black and white?" Maria had just shoved Kyle out the doorway, and had no qualms about interrupting.

"We have all the proof we need."

"Well here's what we're going to do. Kyle pop the tape in please."

"What are you going to show me??" Pierce wasn't able to disguise the tremble in his voice.

"Something that will open up your mind to the possibilities."

*bounce* Part 5

On the TV appeared the congressional hearings to disband the FBI special unit, with Pierce at the helm of a sinking ship.

"What the hell is this??

Maria's singsong voice rang out from the hall. "I'd look at the date if I we're you."

"But that's not possible. This is fabricated."

"Sorry, but this is the real thing, we taped the entire hearing off TV. We couldn't help ourselves, it was too good to resist." Maria was back in the room trying to get a look at Pierce's face, wishing she had her camera.

"Are you trying to say you're from the future?"

"See he is catching on."

"What?? How??" A look of fear, then absolute terror pasted over his expression. Click. Kyle on the other hand did bring a camera.

"All in good time." Liz knew he was playing right into their plan.
First she started with current situation, telling him he caught the wrong one. The one he was looking for, the killer, the shapeshifter, was still out there. "You of all people should know about shapeshifters. That ONE alien race that is bent on taking over the world."

"Of course."

"Then you should also know that Max here isn't one." Liz needed him to be able to tell the difference literally between good and evil.

"Correct but he's not human."

"See that's where you're wrong again. We're gonna let you into some of the things that aren't in your files." Liz went into detail about How Max is actually a genetically engineered human that is comparable to the next evolution after homosapien. The complex cloning procedures, where they alter DNA resequencing using gandarium. And that he was sent here to save whole worlds.
She went into length about the alien races. The skins, the race that actually does want to conquer Earth. The race that they knew nothing about and yet, is right under their noses. Such as congresswoman Whittaker.


"Now the future that's a little harder to explain, especially with all the alternate realities we've now created. In the first reality the skins take over in 2014. But I think in our reality that may have come even sooner. So we're here to fix the mistakes we made even after we fixed some of our other mistakes, so hopefully we will actually come out on top in the end.
Here's where you come in. The shapeshifter that's been toying with you for the past 50 years, he's a traitor. He was sent here to protect them. Instead he cut a deal with the enemy 40 years ago, to hand them over to be publicly executed.
In this time he's pretending to be on our side and helping us to rescue Max over there. They're expected to show up in a few hours. The original timeline we we're successful. It was when you came after us that the unit got exposed and subsequently disbanned. We plan on changing that in case you didn't get that yet. You see our timeline was where we found out about his treachery, and about his apprentice Tess. That's whom we are here for. Both of them will be in this facility, we're going to help you capture them. We know all about your methods at getting information. They don't work, but we can help with that. We need to find out as much as possible from them, and keep them from doing any more harm." Liz used her alien enhanced intuition to see how he was handling everything, and although he seemed a bit confused, which was totally understandable given the circumstances, she still got the feeling that he'll come around to their side after they produce the prize they just dangled in front of him.

"Yea, we want some revenge for her killing our friend, and lying to us." Kyle still has issues.

"Well yes that is the icing on the cake, but I'm more looking to finally put a stop to this, 3 realities is enough, we have to get this right. They can't be allowed to take over Earth, as they did on Antar. I think we got enough info from the futures to stop them this time. So my question is, will you help us this time knowing what you now know??? " Liz knew that they couldn't let revenge blind them to the important mission at hand, getting Tess was just a bonus, stopping Tess was the goal. And if she just happened to get maimed in the process, so be it.

"And let me just warn you, we don't take kindly to traitors. Oh yea, she'll know if you're lying." Kyle had first hand knowledge of being freaked by that comment, and knew Pierce would jump to the same conclusions. Oh yeah, that's the look. Try and get all thoughts out of your head.

"How are a group of teens going to "save the world"??? Pierce was trying his best to act like they were delusional. He even added rolling his eyes at the end, like he was not believing a word, and yet not able to pull off that look convincingly enough.

"We're not your average group of teens." Unfortunately the death glare is not one of their powers, or Kyle would have a hole in his head where Maria was currently glaring. He'll be in for it once she realizes starting fires is one of her powers.

"And just what makes you so special."

"Uh Liz." Insert foot into mouth now.

"I know but I was hoping we could stay away from that for a bit. Well basically everything comes down to trust. We have to know that we can trust you to help us, and you have to trust us enough to join our side. But for now I think some things have to remain privileged info. If you can prove yourself to us, in capturing Nasedo and Tess, then we'll talk. That's the deal. We help you capture 2 of the real enemy, and give you all the info we have on them, their locations, some of their identities, and most importantly how to destroy them. We'll be helping, mostly because you wouldn't stand a chance without us. And all we're really looking for is an ally. We want to have the government on our side, instead of hindering our progress. Plus we could really use the resources. Do we have a deal??"

"If what you say is true, how do I know you're not helping the aliens?"

"Again you're using the word aliens a little too universally, so to speak." Maria said while her hands flailing in the air to emphasize her point. "There are lots of aliens, there are allies, and then there's the enemy. Only one of those, goes by the name Kivar."

"How do I know you're not helping Ki… him??"

"You don't that's where trust comes in. Liz here feels she can trust you, if you know that were both on the same side, Earth's. But the thing is, we don't need you. If you insist on being against us, then you'll just make yourself our enemy, and indispensable. " Only Hurricane Deluca ever mastered the death glare, and without alien powers.

"Ever hear the expression the enemy of my enemies is my friend." Always quoting wisemen like buddah, at least Kyle picked one that applied this time. Hey anyone can get lucky once.

"Unfortunately you being in opposition to us, is helping Kivar. We need to be on the same team. I can give you some more proof, but only after you trust us enough to be able to show you." Liz felt a shift in Pierce, her words may have actually hit home.

"Alright. We have a deal. Now what about my men."

"Oh they're just taking a nap, so they'll be nice and alert when the time comes." Maria had definitely enjoyed putting them to sleep too, she was still sporting a smile.

*bounce* Part 6

They left Pierce alone locked in the room, well more like welded shut with alien powers, but you get the idea. While they discussed how things were proceeding.

"First off, Kyle did you send Isabel those images?" Liz was back in command, and checking off her list mentally since she didn't bring the paper copy with her.

"Yeah. Although I wish I could have kept her from ever seeing that again. But yes, she got them and she didn't realize that I wasn't Max."

"Good. Maria how about you??"

"They're entering the base as we speak."

"Right on schedule." Just because Nasedo was the synchronize watch type, didn't mean they couldn't use that to his disadvantage. And Liz planned on using all of his weaknesses against him.

"OK Liz now for the million dollar question…. Do we believe Pierce is actually on our side, or trying to play us???" Kyle couldn't get past the past, well the future, of Pierce using him which subsequently led to him being shot and being brought into the alien world.

"I feel that he wants to believe us but needs a little more proof. He's been so…... prejudice, for so long. He needs undeniable proof, and he doesn't realize that we're about to give that to him, and a whole lot more. I still get the same sense from him that I did before…. He will do anything to protect Earth. And that's what we need most. After he realizes that that is our primary goal, then we'll never have to question him again. And his ruthlessness. Well, we need that too."

"Then chica, I guess we go to step 4."

Pierce quickly briefed his men that there was a breach, and that they were to capture the intruders unharmed. It was a little harder to explain when he told them that they were to follow Liz's orders.

Liz broke them up into 2 teams, with Kyle in charge of team 2. Liz and Pierce would go after Nasedo, while Maria & Kyle nabbed the gerbil.

---

"Is it time yet??" Michael's impatience had worn off onto Maria afterall.
"Almost." Kyle then gave out the order. "Everyone can get into position."
Pierce's men then proceeded to block all the exits, and two men crept up under the stairway waiting for the signal.

***Scene from white room of Tess and Isabel alone.***
"It's gonna be ok. Nasedo knows what to do."
"Thank you."
"We've been in trouble before. We can deal with this
"That's not what I mean. Thank you for helping us find Max."
"We haven't got him yet."
"So I don't understand. I'm going to dream walk him to give him the plan, but what are you going to do?"
---
"It's time, gerbil-breath just closed her eyes." Maria was always using her many endearing nicknames.

Kyle picked up the walkie talkie. "That's a go, all teams move in."

***While Tess was mindwarping Isabel into thinking an FBI agent had just grabbed her…. Two FBI agents where standing on either side of her, waiting for her to open her eyes.
That smug look on her face, directed at Isabel, quickly vanished, and was replaced by fear. The agents grabbed her and started to take her away. She tried to mindwarp them to escape but for some reason she couldn't seem to do it. She then tried to use an energy blast, but stopped when she looked up and saw Maria standing in front of her, waiving her finger at her.
"Tsk, tsk, gerbil. Can't have any of that now. I think it's time for you to take a nap." She touched Tess's arm and she slumped into the agents arms. "Now why didn't we use your camera, her face was just too priceless." Maria wined. She turned to Kyle and then shook his shoulder. "Kyle you can stop blocking her, I already knocked her out."

Isabel stood shocked rooted to the spot, watching all of this unfold around her. She noticed none of the agents where giving her a second glance. When she saw Maria and Kyle she feared the worst, but now she was too shocked to even think what this all meant. Kyle was the first to notice her state, and went to comfort her. "Hey Izzy, everything's alright now, but I know you won't believe me until you see Max, so are you going to get a move on, or are you going to keep him waiting."

"Let's go." Isabel grabbed his arm and started pulling him down the corridor.

*bounce* Part 7

Meanwhile In another part of the base. Michael & Nasedo were in the morgue and Nasedo was trying to get Michael to use his powers to change his fingerprints. Only this time as Agent Madison was walking down the corridor he stopped at the door before opening it, and said "UUGG this place just creeps me out, forget this, I'll send the new-bee to take this route." He turned around and headed back the way he came. By that time Michael had changed his fingerprints, and they proceeded to the secured area. Michael placed his hand on the scanner and they made their way in. Unbeknownst to either of them, someone was behind them and sealed it shut.

They turned left down the corridor towards where the interrogation rooms were. They heard some men coming and ducked into a small room. After the men passed they stood back up and took a quick look-see. Michael gasped when he saw Max through the two way mirror, laying unconscious on a bed. "There he is, let's go."
Nasedo grapped his arm in his haste to run out the door. " We have to find the controls to open the door first, your powers won't work here."
Michael mumbled a fine and they proceeded to look over all the stuff in the little room. "there's some buttons over here, but how do we know that these aren't gonna like shock him or somethin'"
"That one right there should be it. I'm going to go down there to get him, when you see me reach the door, hit that button to open the door. If that's not it, try one of these 3 over here. Once I'm in, wait here until we make it back.
"But…"
"Only if there is trouble do I need you to come down and get Max out of here. But that's after you open the door, understand." Again another mumbled fine, and Nasedo was gone. While Michael was watching for Nasedo on the monitors, he saw Pierce nearly there.
"Great, just great."
Michael went to leave to follow after Nasedo, and in his haste he turned the corner and bumped into someone.
----
Nasedo saw Pierce enter the room and was relieved that he left the door open. He looked at his watch and smiled. He'd just wait a minute and walk right in there undetected.

"It's time" Nasedo looked into what appeared to be Pierce fascinated by something on the table. **that's my girl** The minute he was completely into the room, he heard the door slam behind him, and turned startled.
***what is that measly human doing? Oh well I'll just have to kill her.***

Liz however just smiled, and pointed behind him. "You might want to turn around."
"Stupid human. You will not stand in my way." He raised his hand and threw an energy blast at her.

*bounce* Part 8

Liz just stood there as the energy blast came right at her, and then.. disappeared. Nasedo's mouth dropped open, but he quickly recovered and tried again this time putting everything in it. The room shock with the amount of force he conjured. It barreled toward Liz and just as it reached her, it too vanished. Nasedo howled in frustration.
"What is the meaning of this?? What are you?? How?? It can't be."
Liz totally nonchalant "Now do you want to turn around?"
Nasedo turned around to see that… the two way mirror had been turned into a window and on the other side the gang was standing there waiving hi, (or is that bye.)
Then something caught his eye, and he turned to the side to see that the wall was also now see through and on the other side was an unconscious gerbil. Fury now fueled him and he went to blast the others in the room, figuring if he couldn't get to Liz than at least he'd take down Pierce. We whirled around again to find Max sitting on the table, dangling his legs over the edge, with Pierce right beside him. And they both had smug faces, just like everyone else. He raised his arm, figuring he'd blast that smug expression right off with their heads. But this time no blast came.
During the time that Liz had him distracted, Pierce was able to inject Nasedo with the neuro-inhibiting drugs. Hey she told him to turn around. His concentration to destroy her made his physical sensations non-important, and therefore disregarded without a thought, because all thought was being otherwise entertained. It was an alien trait. Though, the best part was yet to come.

Max jumped down and headed over to Liz. He took her hand and they both just disappeared. In there place came a group of men dressed all in green like surgeons, with medical equipment.

"Set that stuff up over there. Soon we'll be ready to begin."
"Nasedo isn't that the name you've been going by, we're going to get to know each other real well. And if you're thinking that you're not going to answer any of my questions…. Well than you've got it all wrong. You see…" He turned around and pointed over to the equipment just wheeled in. "I'm not going to ask any questions. Now we just wait. It shouldn't be long now."
"Wait for what?"
"Talkative aren't we. You'll see soon enough."


With the inhibitor in his system he wasn't able to hold human form, and the gang and co. got their first glimpse of an alien.

*bounce* TBC... But only after lots of feedback. And this time I don't plan on taking a year to get the next part out, that's why I posted 4 new parts.... guilt. LOL!!!
You can still give suggestions of things you want to do to Tess, I'm still editing those parts. It was hard getting everyones revenge to work, but I think I almost got it. Next part will be out soon.

*bounce* New Part 9

A lot had been explained that evening. They had called the three musketeers to join them and explained the unique situation. Kyle decided to not have him or the sheriff brought into it just yet, there were more pressing matters. Kyle was put in charge of catching everyone up to speed in the meeting room, so that Liz & Maria's other selves didn't meet.
And summarized in a flamboyance only he could muster.


First came the hard part, telling them about the 3 different realities. "Prepare for the headache." He explained that they came from the future to change all the mistakes they made. Duh? In one reality this nightmare of being captured was a reality. Max & Liz were together and Tess left Roswell. Then in 2014 the skins invade Earth. But that reality, Max came back from the future to change. The reality that they came from, Tess had killed Alex, got pregnant with Maxie-boy's kid, and blasted off the planet. Good riddens!! Even though their reality had a lot more bite, it did lead them to the truth. And a way to fix it.

As always it's best to start at the beginning. When Liz was shot, and Max healed her, he also changed her. He turned her into one of them. Like they were told by Nasedo they were genetically engineered. The equivalent of what humans would evolve into, the next evolutionary step. In the original reality Liz never portrayed any powers. In their reality it wasn't until after all hell started, that Liz astro-projected to Max when he was at the summit meeting in NY with their dupes. And nothing more came of it until Liz touched the granolith, which the gerbil supposedly just left in, strapped to her ass. That was when Liz found out everything. In this timeline they'd get to experience that first hand, but the jiss of it was that they were here to be human, to be with humans. Apparently on their home world Antar, their evolution lost some genes along the way that ended up being important. Go figure.
They were sent here to become stronger, build an army, become a force to be reckoned with in the universe. They sent the granolith because it was a power source that they could tap into when needed, and for information to guide them. Liz received a lot of information from it, not only of why they were there and what they and the granolith were capable of, but also info on everything from the future in both realities. She came up with this plan to take away the annoyance the gerbil caused, as well as get the government to help in the fight for Earth, all at once.
Now came the hard part, the human/alien relationships. Put that anxiety, and sexual frustration aside. The side effect of alien sex, is you become one. Not just have powers, but also the two become one, literally one, and join their essence together. In the original reality only M/L 'cemented' their relationship. In their's it's a bit more complicated. M/T were the first and that resulted with her pregnant. But because Max had already bonded his soul to Liz, the only result was gaining gerbils abilities. And that was why the baby couldn't survive. Not that it had much of a chance since the only reason it was conceived was because Tess mindwarped Max, and also had to manipulate the molecules into fusing to a zygote. Even they wouldn't go willingly.
M/M were next and that lead to Michael not being able to leave Earth, and subsequently everyone staying behind. Then after Liz connected with the granolith, well lets just say everyone was shocked. Liz suggested that M/L, M/M, and K/I sleep together to gain their powers. Then Max, Michael, and Isabel would stay behind to control the granolith into sending Liz, Maria , and Kyle into the past to before the Whiteroom. While there they would stop Max from being tortured, and capture Nasedo and Tess before she goes all murder rampage and nocked up. And on a side note, all the parents get told the truth, before they left the future they figured it didn't matter what they did because it was only going to cease to exist anyway. So they told all the parents the truth, and it turned out better than any of them could have ever dreamed. And the parents made them promise to be included in the next reality

"You got all that."

---
While Kyle was bringing the gang up to speed, Liz was visiting the gerbil's cell.
"You'll pay for all you've done." She touched Tess's forehead, and her hand emitted a blue glow.

TBC... *bounce* the next 2 parts will have bits of everyone's revenge on Tess.

Just a note that I'm working on the new parts.

I'd have a lot more progress if I didn't keep deleting it, and starting over. Although my dogs' wagging tails unplugging the computer after I was done with a scene, that was not saved yet, didn't help either.
