"Into the Null Void" is the first chapter of the FanFiction.Net series Fusion Fall: The Story of Pike Aftershock. It was published on March 29, 2013.


Pike Aftershock is at home, on his couch, watching TV, when there is a knock on his door. It's Grim coming to tell him he's been drafted and is to report to Fusion Fall Academy. He tells his friend Alysson, who worried about him, but, as with normal conscription, failure to show up for duty will put the draftee in jail. Chris McLean is assigned to escort the draftees to the Null Void. Upon entering, they are to get their armor from Gumball and their schedules from Mary Test. Pike then goes to his dorm room to be alone. He doesn't feel like socializing, when they are to be sent to war soon. Ben, Pike's idol, comes in and he tells Pike that he should be out getting to know all of his peers. As a sign of respect for Ben's wishes, he decides to go out and mingle.
