Divided Chapter 63“Stark, I can't hear you!” Colin called through the open door of the portal base as he gazed up at the diamond shaped gouge in the ceiling.
“Follow the sound of my voice,” Stark lilted, “Enter and be enlightened.”
Colin peered into the dark interior, saw the glint of a flashlight as it illuminated the narrow passageway framed by a jungle of wires and circuit boards.
“Am I gonna short something out if I touch it?” Colin eased himself into the passageway, keeping his arms tight to his body.
“Naw.....ew wont urt anyfing.” Stark's voice came from deeper inside the base. Colin spied a blue white glow a few feet ahead, turned to his right around a corner and found Stark, flashlight in his mouth, working on a large panel dominated by a bundle of red cables.

Agent: Colin M. Denehy
I was going over my journal entries this afternoon and like a lightning bolt it struck me. Simon has been AWOL for going on two months. Is he dead? Imprisoned somewhere? Living happily in some remote Asgardian village? Who knows. We've heard fuck all from him since his letter. To be honest, I don't have a clue what shite Stark is feeding the boys across the portal but he's been able to keep Simon's absence a secret, he even fed Captain Rogers a line when he helped test the portal.

It started out quietly enough. Loki, Eidra and Brenna arrived at Longhouse 1 with Brynn who was treating the outing as an adventure as he'd ne
