Hello guys!


This is my venture outside my everyday work. I write fan fictions just to let out stress.


All of my titles are posted in GTPlanet, and they mostly deal with circuit racing, and rarely any form of street racing be it the touge or the highway roads.


This is just one among the few titles inspired by the TXR and WMMT series, titled...



The Quest For 400



I shall post the first page, and feedback is appreciated. I am no means perfect, but I write only for enjoyment.


Do note, that this title is my latest work. If you have any questions with my characters or you want to have a better understanding of my entire story (which has been running for over 2 years), then I shall post a link soon, in which it will lead you to a directory of my titles in GTPlanet, listed in chronological order.



Enjoy!



Route 7... a once peaceful thoroughfare will now see its quiet days end.
Those who thirst for speed will be responsible for the demise of the peace it has been keeping for so long.



Takanori Kanonji is given an assignment, to enter in this chaotic world where everyone is gunning for the highest seat of speed - 400 kilometers per hour - all because of this one mysterious car.






Page 1 - New Article



Location: Route 7, Tokyo, Japan
Time: 2 am




Route 7, a long highway that allows travelers to access almost any prefecture in Japan. It made lives better for the Japanese who seek to venture places in a more efficient manner for decades. It has also withstood major earthquakes and other calamities.


While Route 5 has been the center of street races as of late, 7 enjoys a relative amount of peace, and races are very rare.


However, it shall also see its peaceful days end...




...all because of this car.

This blue R8 has been making rounds in the road for weeks as if seeking for something... a rival, perhaps. It's averaging 400 kilometers per hour in all of its runs.




300 kilometers per hour is something too easy to achieve nowadays...

Location: Aoyama, Tokyo
Time: 7 am, Monday




Someone is on a rush to work at the beginning of the week...

Meet Takanori Kanonji, a race car driver and a motoring journalist. He has the knack of getting late to work, something that is ironic given his professional background.



Takanori: "Waaaaahhhhhh!!! Taping starts at 8 am!"



Suddenly, he gets a phone call. Looking at his phone, he is surprised that Rob is on the other line.


Rob Hatch, his British teammate (and an MI6 agent) with the looks that mirror that of a very popular British action star.



Takanori: "Eh??? *picks up phone* Oh... hello, Rob."



Rob: "I'm on my way to your office."

Takanori: "Hold on, when did you arrive?"




Rob: "I'm at the Haneda airport arrivals right now, and am about to take a taxi."



Takanori: "Whoa... why not tell us?"




Rob: "I'm always filled with surprises, right? See you there."



Rob abruptly ends the call as he entered a taxi.




Takanori: "Oh lord..."





Takanori arrives at the office, and he quickly rushes to the make up team and sits down, as he has a few minutes left before the taping would start.




And so, the show is on. Takanori, Nobuyuki and Nobuhiko are the hosts for today. Though of course the atmosphere will never be the same after Takuma left.




Rob arrives at the office, and sees the taping in progress. Of course he is to sit down in the living area of the floor since guests aren't allowed in the production area and in the workspace unless if it's a guest in the program.




He grabs a Motoring Monthly magazine, reading it despite his little knowledge on the Japanese language.




Moments later, the magazine's editor-in-chief named Isami arrives, and seeing that the taping is going smoothly, he carries on until he sees Rob. Knowing that he resembles a popular British action star, Isami couldn't help but stare at the guest.



Rob notices the editor-in-chief's presence, which prompts him to start reading and give a stare.



Isami: "Ummmm.... sir? Any person in this office you intend to visit?"



Rob: "My teammates, that's all."



Isami: "Really? But we don't have any special guests for the episode. However, won't you mind if..."





Isami hurriedly goes to his office and gets a DVD case of The Transporter, and a permanent marker. Upon returning, he reaches them out over to Rob.




Rob: "You know, I'm not who you think I am. He's 47, and I'm just 27."




Isami: "Oh... I'm sorry. Because you look so much like him."



Rob: "Note to self - have a name plate."



Isami silently walks away, heading back to his office.



Then after taping the entire episode, the three hosts return to their cubicles. Rob then stands up, and simply walks through the restricted area, with a mean scowl (in truth, he's just sleepy) on his face and his presence alone makes the office stop its time as employees look at him.



Seeing that Rob has arrived, Takanori comically hides behind his teammate and co-worker Nobuyuki, trembling in fear.



Takanori: "It's DECKARD SHAW!!! Help! Look at his face..."



Rob steps in their zone, and briefly glances at his teammates.




Nobuyuki: "What's with that face? Being badass again?"



Rob: "You know, don't make me blow this place up like what happened to Kaz's headquarters. I'm sick and tired of being the Deckard Shaw."



Takanori: "With that all-black theme you're sporting, especially that leather jacket? I KNEW IT!!! He's seeking for revenge here!"



But Takanori quits his ruse and makes a friendly banter with Rob. Even though he's sleepy, Rob just smiles at his teammates.




Nobuhiko: "Oh... how's it going?"



Rob: "Three months suspended. So I treat it as a holiday."




Takanori: "We've heard what happened. Condolences, mate."




Rob: "Just have to move on. That's what life taught me."




Nobuyuki: "How long would you be staying?"





Rob: "As much as I'd like, until my wife Jenny calls, though."





************************************************************



Throughout the day, it has been productive. Rob just stopped by for an hour, and returned to his hotel.



Takanori is the only person left in his area, and just as about he is to carry his bag, he is summoned by Isami.



In his office, Isami puts down his glasses, and places them on the desk.




Isami: "Oh... it almost slipped my tongue. You'll be working on a new article, since you just submitted your article a while ago."



Takanori: "What is it?"



Isami: "Delve deep in Route 7's racing scene. It's been a boom there quite lately."



Takanori: "Huh? Really?"




Isami: "It's been going on quite a while. Those racers are now making top speed runs at midnight, according to the recent news.


This is for the tuning section of the magazine. Find out what makes those cars really fast, and make sure you conceal identities, should you interview owners."



Takanori takes down notes on what the EIC said.



Takanori: "Understood, sir."




Isami: "If if would mean tuning your car to the max and chase them down, then it's fine."




Takanori: "Okay, sir."




Isami: "That's all for tonight. You can go."




Takanori gets out of the room, breathing out a sigh.





Takanori: "Seriously?"

Location: Kaido Speed Shop
Time: 10 pm





Having a productive day, the famous tuner named Kaido closes down the shop, and then takes a brief stare at his Z31 he owns for decades. He has been tuning it little by little ever since it rolled off from the showroom floor.

He grins, and then starts to smoke outside before he could walk to his home just a block away.




Kaido: "In the past, 400 horsepower was to die for. But now...





...it's 400 kilometers per hour to die for. Racers nowadays are just too blind."

Moving this thread to the General Discussion Sub-Forum as the OP's intent is to make a fanfic.

Page 2: 400 KM/H Missile








Location: Motoring Weekly Office, Nishi-Shinjuku, Tokyo
Time: 7 pm, the next day





Everyone is about to head home, including Takanori. But he feels that he must entertain Rob, so he decided to tell his wife that he will be eating out with him.

After that phone call, he now calls on Rob, who is just idle in the hotel.



Takanori: "Hey, you feel having a night out?"


Rob: "Sure, I'll be heading there. Where do you live?"


Takanori: "I live now where Aniki used to live, in front of the mochi shop."



Rob: "I see. I'm on my way."




Takanori first passes by to his home to change, and as well as to wait for Rob. When he arrived, Takanori immediately brings him to the car they'll be using.


And that made Rob cringe for a bit, and then just giggled.



Takanori: "Eh??? What's wrong?"



Rob: "Matte black Aventador, huh?"




Takanori: "Hey... I just had it wrapped in matte black way before that movie showed! I don't know about that, okay?


Maybe you want to drive it."



Rob: "All right, all right. Let's go. I kinda missed driving here, anyway."



They set off, and while driving, Rob immediately notices Takanori's flushed face.

Rob: "Something wrong?"



Takanori: "Sigh... just the usual stress associated with work."



Rob: "Hmm?"



Takanori: "I was just given a new article, about this new street racing fad in Route 7. Everyone is said to be gunning at 400 kilometers per hour, and I have to investigate and feature some of those tuned cars."




Rob: "400 kilometers per hour? That would be..."



Takanori: "Over 240 miles per hour in Imperial."




Rob: "Sounds like fun. Hey, give me directions to Route 7."



Upon entering, and seeing no traffic at all, Rob floors it.



Rob: "Mind if I give this a go?"



Takanori: "It's fine. In fact this has 80 horsepower more than stock."

The Aventador accelerates away like bullet fired from its gun. With 780 horsepower, it sure has an improved thrust from stock.

Takanori: "Plus, I adjusted its gear ratios too."


Rob reads the tachometer that also shows the car's speed. It's been going at over 370 km/h at 9000 rpm on 7th gear.



Rob: "370, huh?"



Takanori: "It's mildly-tuned, so that's just expected."



Rob: "So let's just assume that those racers have cars that have more firepower than this Aventador. This is starting to get interesting."



Then the two got hungry, and decided to stop by for dinner. Takanori suggests a restaurant within Shibuya, and so Rob follows his directions.



They managed to find a parking space, beside a yellow Toyota Aristo.

The two men get out, and Rob takes a brief moment to stare at that bright colored sedan.



Rob: "You Japanese sure have a lot of crazy ideas, including car colors."



Takanori: "I've seen a pink Lamborghini Diablo prowling around here as well, so you're right. We just love tinkering everything."



Upon entering the restaurant, which is a grill and hot pot style, they immediately placed their orders. The waitress serves them the raw meat, and the two start grilling them at the middle of the table.




Rob: "I'm starting to love these types of restaurants. I can't find a place like this in London."


Takanori: "It's the most fun way to dine."



Rob: "So, let's go back on your article. You know, I can provide help with that. You must know very well what's my other profession."



Takanori: "Really? But is that okay with you?"



Rob: "I can gather intel on my own and deliver it at the fastest possible time. I can even hack my way through Tokyo's Police Department and access the files regarding speeding vehicles."



Takanori: "Hmmmmm.... that should work, and I can browse through forums as well, and check if there will be a racing scene."



Rob: "You just got yourself an article, little shrimp."



Takanori: "It's all settled, then!"

Time: 12 am





It's time for Kaido to hunt down at least a racer gunning for 400 kilometers per hour. The stories increasingly kept coming to him.

Kaido: "This Z31 can do the trick, even if it just means keeping up to see the car in action."




As he cruises along, however, he spots the blue R8 doing the same thing.

Kaido: "Ahhhh.... an Audi R8. One of the most beautiful sports cars in the world, and one that is a dream for every enthusiast, serious or poseurs alike. It would surely stand out from the crowd."




Having deduced that he has found nothing interesting at all, he decides to turn back, and surprisingly the R8 does the same. And the moment they pass through the ramp...

...Kaido hears the loud V10 rear. The German supercar takes off.



Kaido: "Oh ho... itching for a race, eh?"



However, the R8 displays immense acceleration, prompting Kaido to immediately activate the scramble boost function installed on his car.


Kaido: "That acceleration... something that a heavily-tuned GT-R can only do."

At the undersea tunnel, the two cars fly by, with Kaido's Z31 drafting behind the R8, increasing the car's speed to 380 km/h.

But from that point on, the R8 starts to increase its gap...




Kaido: "I think this is all true. I have finally found a tuned machine that is capable of achieving and maintaining 400 kilometers per hour.


This bout has gotten more interesting indeed."

Hello! I see that this thread has gotten stagnant. I have decided that I'll rewrite the entire thing. While it will still use Gran Turismo 6 photos, the cars will be entirely different.
