Terrific chapter! Loved it.
Again the sense of a gradual build of tension...we know something's going to happen, but we don't know when, or how... I get the sense that Brains has a feeling, but of course it's hard to run a multibillion dollar business on a feeling, even if it is your genius engineer that's having that feeling! I had to laugh at Scott being quite aware that Jeff is going to have a hard time corralling his youngest...which is proven out by the last scene, which is absolutely delightful. I don't often see Alan and Tin-Tin written as well as this.
And poor Delaney and Hewitt! Felt so bad for them... But of course they've delivered the big cliffhanger of this update! What's gonna happen NOW?

How refreshing to read a really well written story! Thank you.
You're building up the suspense nicely, and I really want to know what happened to the boys. i get the feeling it won't be good news.
How quickly can you write the next chapter?

Interesting chapter - will look forward to the next.

So the intrigue continues. Will the new grabs for Thunderbird Two be required for an emergency in Australia? What has become of the Townsend twins and now that Alan and Tin Tin are in Australia too, will they be involved in a much bigger scale? Poor Brains, he has sort of got it into Jeff just how bad things are in that earthquake zone. I can't help feeling sorry for Delaney too. You have made him into a truly beleivable character.
Great read as always and eagerly awaited and enjoyed.

You kept us waiting a very long time for this update, but I have to say it was definitely worth the wait. Loved the three-way between Jeff, Scott and Brains (poor Brains), and the racking up of tension in that moment. No matter how much Jeff thinks the situation in Aus is going to even out, the suspense rather hints otherwise. Love love LOVED poor old Delaney, caught between the rock (the news reporters) and the hard place (the police commissioner). I think he needs to tell them all where they can shove it (but then you'd have to put this story in the M section). And Alan and Tin-Tin? I live for those moments - thank you! But something tells me this is just the calm before the storm ... the red backpack, TB2 being fitted for grabs, Alan and Tin-Tin thinking they can take a break from IR... it all screams disaster!

I finally got a chance to read this chapter - another good one, mcj!
Now I'm champing at the bit, waiting for the next chapter.

Thanks AussieJo for your comments. I rarely comment on my own work in an open forum but I just wanted to let you know that further down in the chapter you read about the 1989 earthquake (which Jeff alludes to as occurring in 1990) Alan says the following
"I already have, Dad. It was December 1989 actually," Alan corrected his father as he scanned the records he'd accessed a little earlier. "The quality of information doesn't look like it was too crash hot back then. I'm not so sure it's going to tell Brains all that much."
Just thought I'd clarify. Thank you very much again.
Thank you to all who are following this story. The next chapter will be posted soon.

Good story and great to have Australia included. but I feel I need to correct you about the '1990' earthquake in Newcastle. It was actually in 1989, on December 28 at 10.27am.
Nearly 1990, but not quite.

Chapter 6 - the plot thickens :-) still enjoying the ride here, keep going!

To me, this story has been like watching an actual episode of Thunderbirds on television. The introduction of the characters that we know are going to be in need of the services of International Rescue at the beginning. Then the change of scene between them and what is happening on Tracy Island all helps to build up the tension and the drama that is gradually unfolding. I can almost imagine the music of Barry Gray playing in the background when I'm reading it.
Don't worry about your O/C's, Marg. They are very much a part of this story and the Tracy's are still very much an integral part. Your description of the very much harrassed Officer Delaney is very good, right down to him worrying about having coffee stains on his tie!
I can't wait for the next part. Are the boys lost and hurt or have they been kidnapped, and will Scott finally get to fly Thunderbird One? Don't keep us waiting too long.

Loving the complications and twists that are developing here...and as the beta I get to see them before anyone else, neener! ;-) Marg, your skill with original characters needs no apology. The Townsend family and now Detective Sergeant Delaney are well drawn individuals with their own voices, and particularly with Delaney I can feel the weight of his experience, of his job, behind his words and thoughts. What a shocker the beginning of this chapter brings, too... and the threads are being drawn inexorably together by its close. Great work indeed. :-)

Earthquake tension! Mad Dad Jeff tension! Lost boys tension! Mt. Scott's about to blow his stack! Alan's going nutzoid, as usual, too. At least soundproofed Grandma's getting some sleep. This has got it all, can't wait to find out what happens next. Great story, mcj!

Interesting story, enjoying it. Will be watching for updates.
