Greater Discoveries is the fourteenth fanfiction in the Teenagers of the Great Sea Series. It follows the twenty teenagers from The Mechanical Menace as they explore the inlands of the islands they found in A Large Problem, and fight off the Mutant Viruses.
"Twenty-six weeks after the The MUM Invasion, in The Beginning, there was a Return to the Great Sea, that created a Transdimentional Flux, which led to Past Connections. At the time when Darkness Reigns, it was The Mechanical Menace, who started the Mortal Kombat, that created The Deadly Alliance. After the great Space Exploration, there was a Trouble at Orre, that wanted The Strange Land, to gain A Large Problem. Now, during the Greater Discoveries..."
Almost immediately after the events of A Large Problem, all the teenagers are talking together in a park on Greatfish Island. They discuss what they've seen and heard, and eventually ask the opinion of Neha and Jihan Articulo. They both agree that they should wait for the Gentle Dominet to land, believing the boat is headed for Greatfish (In actuality, Kailee Konn had made the crew of the ship turn around towards Dragon Roost Island).
The teenagers then agree to split into two groups, and head for the two major docks nearby. Jasmine, Justin, Paff, Gers, Manus, Medli, Jeff, Brianne, Neha, Shannon, and Jihan head towards the south dock, where the Vengeful Wisdom lies, while Yvon, Violet, Samus, Tetra, Charlotte, Bobby, Trevor, Mary, Rowan and Trish head for the east dock, where the Sea of Roses lies.
When Jasmine and her group reach their respective dock, however, they realize the Vengeful Wisdom has been overrun. They decide that Tina Ray has found out about their dooped savings account, and is taking the ship back. Neha offers to bring in her dragons, but Medli tells her that 'The last thing we need now is a panic!'
Upon reaching the renting bay, the teenagers try to reason with Tina, but wind up finding themselves in a gunfight. The adults are forced upstairs, while the teenagers fight their way downstairs.
After killing Tina and her two henchmen, the teenagers find the adults at gunpoint, but are able to save them via shooting them in the head from behind. The group rush outside, where they force the men out of their ship with weapons, and start sailing.
Realizing they couldn't go anywhere, the teenagers agree that they should hide away the Vengeful Wisdom until it is needed again. They decide to head west, towards High Island.
The group spend a night in the barns of the farm until early morning, when the dragons fly the group as close to the city as possible without being seen clearly.
However, upon reaching the city, Gers points out how quiet it is, and the teenagers begin to investigate: The newspapers haven't been updated since the last time the teenagers visited Sasnu... barely any cars go by, and all the phone books are missing from the payphones.
The teenagers agree that something happened, or something is going to happen, in this city.
After a suggestion from Paff, the group visits the crumpled building that they had visited previously. However, upon entering it, they realized they were not alone.
The same man that Kailee had killed in that very building was standing there, grinning at them. Realizing this, the teenagers start to panic.
Calmly, the man states that 'There are ways of countering the systematic problem of death. You've seen it... haven't you?'
Suddenly, the group found themselves surrounded by at least eight people; however, all of them looked exactly the same in appearance. As if the man that had spoken... cloned himself.
The group is easily able to kill the men, however, and make their escape. Justin and Gers steal a vehicle from a (deserted) car dealership.
The group is followed, however, by three other vehicles with strange FBI-type men inside.
"I don't think we can go back."
"Of course not! Don't you see? We can't turn around until our goal is done; we must do our job, we must fight our battles, we must make our greater discoveries!"
