Fic Snippet: Magnificent 7: ATF AU/Knight Rider: F&I AU

I sat down tonight to work on the next story of my "Umbra" series, a crossover not only of two TV shows but of two widely popular Alternate Universes as well. The first story in the series, "Predators and Prey" introduces the relationship between sharpshooter Vin Tanner (from the modern-day ATF AU of The Magnificent Seven) and mysterious Nick MacKenzie (from Gryph's fantastic "Fire & Ice" AU of Knight Rider). Instead of what I was hoping for though, I wound up writing this...

It does NOT fit into to my "Umbra" series at all, but is at least set in the same basic !verse, after "Predators and Prey". But it gets weirder than that, too, because it also draws on a couple of other unexpected sources. One, the hit cult movie Hackers (starring Angelina Jolie). And two, the boy genius from SeaQuest. Why? ::shrugs:: Why not? Just go with it. ;)

For those KR fans who might read this, sorry that this is mostly M7-focused. Nick and Karr were there in spirit though. :)
