<Ive been thinking a lot about it lately.> Bells thoughts sounded in the void.
<Yea, we know. But we have to do it.> The other girl sent her harsh sentiments to her.
<Why? What would be wrong with just letting go?> The third voice said.
<Because I dont feel like dying yet. And neither do you.> The second girl was outraged at the thought of giving up.
<Youre right.> Bell couldnt lie. They werent speaking with words, so she couldnt lie. These were their thoughts and they couldnt hide them from each other. They all wanted to live and the fact was that they would have to kill three other lives to do it.
<Besides,> the angry girl said. <They killed your beloved Mandark, dont you want them to pay?> Bell thought about it briefly and remembered how much she loathed those girls for killing him. They didnt deserve the second thoughts she was giving them. She would kill them with her bare hands allowing Bell and the guests in her mind to survive.
Buttercup and Bubbles lagged a little behind Dexter and Blossom on their way to school. Dont they look so cute holding hands like that? Bubbles said enthusiastically.
Cute enough to barf. Buttercup replied.
Youre just jealous Samantha isnt here, arent you. Buttercup lunged at Bubbles only to miss and fall face first on the ground. I was only teasing. You need to learn to cool it. Buttercup was irked with Bubbles attitude. To Bubbles it was okay to tease Buttercup about Samantha because despite being separated Samantha was still alive and well. (Unlike Bubbles first love.) It still struck Buttercup hard anytime Samantha was mentioned, though. Buttercup wasnt going to get mad. She was glad to see Bubbles cheerful after a long time of her being quiet and it wasnt her place to stop progress.
Dexter and Blossom approached the schoolyard happily talking about a newly released book they were eager to read. They could not seem to hide their excitement to be with each other and were always radiant as they walked into school. If they had been like any sane student and dreaded school, those thoughts would instantly vanish knowing that school meant a chance to be together for 8 hours of the day.
The two spent the first half of the day passing notes in class. Mostly ones with little hearts and meaningless pet names, but more and more the notes became longer and somehow evolved into a conversation about the Rowdyruffs and Jenny. The brothers were taking refuge at Dr. Wakemans (Jennys mother) in Megavilles suburbs. Eventually, Dexter and Blossom came to the conclusion that there was no more time for waiting for an attack; they had to go after The Dark Star Council. They had three new fighters to help them and with Samanthas inside information, maybe they could formulate some kind of plan.
During recess the sisters and Dexter sat in the shade of their favorite tree and talked. Samantha wont help us fight her dad. Buttercup argued.
You could talk her into it. Shes kind of our friend. Blossom was realizing how undependable Samantha would truly be. She wasnt really allied with Earth, after all. Well, maybe we can find some other way.
We dont know where their base is, so its impossible to attack them. Unfortunately, they seem to have all sorts of information concerning us. Dexter said miserably. He war right and all of them knew it. They couldnt do much of anything offensively.
Luckily, the kids didnt have much time to wallow in self pity because without warning the ground beneath them was shaking violently. The children on the playground were panicking and the teachers seemed utterly witless. Blossom suggested that maybe it was only a normal earthquake only to be informed by Dexter that there were no fault lines near Megaville. It was scientifically impossible for this to be a natural phenomenon.
In the distance, a shadowy figure was walking calmly amongst the quake. Dexter pointed at the figure approaching them. At first, the girls didnt recognize it, but after a few moments their memories were jogged by the particular way the cape was flying in the wind, or maybe it was the hunched over way it walked, or even just the familiar presence of an old enemy. With the familiarity came an unknown feeling. Something that shouldnt have been there. None of them could describe it despite their attempts, but there was something new about him.
The quake ceased. He stood before them. His eyes were cold and unbelievably wicked. Their expressions were of fear and uncertainty. Mojo grinned. Long time, no see. I hope you havent missed me too much, girls.
Ill tell you what Ive missed. Buttercup growled. Ive missed kicking your butt! She came off the ground and flew towards him with her fist pulled back, preparing for a punch that would send him flying. The earth split beneath her as she flew over it, the green aura surrounding her brightened as she neared him and then
He had her throat in his hand. Her body hanged limply in the air as he looked at her like a fisherman would do to a fish after taking it off the hook. Buttercup wasnt aware of her neck in Mojos grasp or of the little whimper that Bubbles had let out at the sight of her seemingly lifeless body. All her sense seemed to fail her as her mind sank deeper and deeper into Mojos own. She could feel his despicable presence all around her. It was taunting her, insulting her, commanding her.
Dexter was paralyzed in fear. Bubbles and Blossom were on the ground motionless. If he hadnt known better he would have assumed they fainted, but he did know better. Bubbles screamed for her sisters in the darkness. She cried and cried for someone to help her. No one came. The abyss around her offered nothing but loneliness and despair. At first, she had no senses to rely on. She couldnt see or hear or even feel the emptiness. After a moment, she was able to see the vast darkness that engulfed her and was able to sense the lack of gravity.
A new feeling swept over her, a warm feeling on her hands. She lifted them to her face and saw the warmth for what it was: blood. She screamed a cry that merely echoed into oblivion with no one to hear it. She attempted to wipe the blood on her school uniform only to discover there were no garments there and she had put the blood on more bare flesh. She knew the blood without having to think about it, it belonged to Bell. Had she somehow killed Bell like she had wished to so many times?
Dexter rushed at the monkey holding Buttercup. He raised a laser gun, doing his best to aim away from Buttercup, but it was too dangerous a shot. Mojo glared at the insolent boy and a gust of wind lifted Dexter off his feet and knocked him into the tree, rendering him unconscious. His powers were definitely evolving faster than Dr. X had predicted.
<Hes doing a good job. Looks like well get the planet before recess is over.>
Shut up. You like this sort of violence, I dont. Bell watched Mojo reluctantly.
<You didnt seem to mind it when you killed Boomer.> The girl continued.
That wasnt me. That was you, using my body.
<For something you wanted. It was your brilliant plan, fearless leader.>
Shut up. The sooner this is over, the better. I hope I dont regret this later.
<Why should you regret doing something thats necessary? Not everything is black and white. Doing what it takes to survive isnt wrong.> It wasnt the mean one, it was the other girl who was delicate and loving. She was right. Everyone wants to live. The Powerpuff Girls deaths were a necessity.
KA-POW! Mojo lost his grip on Buttercup as he was knocked down from behind. Butch caught her and set her down gently. Mojo sat on the grass massaging his aching back. Sons, why would you do such a thing?
Brick and Butch looked at each other. Brick spoke to Mojo, Were not your kids. Youre hurting our friends? Youre hurting our friends were warning you to get out of here.
Mojo nearly laughed at the thought of surrendering to them now. He felt so powerful and invincible. What could these boys do to him? He soon realized that he was tired from all the force he had exerted and that fighting these two would be more difficulty than he was able to deal with.
Blossom didnt like being rescued by Brick and Butch, but she was grateful. After seeing Dexter laying in the hospital bed with the bandages wrapped around his head, Blossom nearly cried out of guilt. The sudden realization that he was in constant danger while with her swept over her. She kissed him on the cheek before returning home to her bed where she tossed and turned all night with nothing but dreams of Dexter dying and Mojo Jojo over his lifeless body laughing sinisterly. She would break up with him tomorrow and not speak to him again. That would be best for both of them.
The <text> is thought. I didn't want to use dialogue for scenes when Bell is talking to the mystery girls by thoughts. If you haven't figured it out, the other two girls exist within Bell's mind and have since before Bleedman's PPGD. This is the explanation I am giving for her mood swings. Kick ass Bell, Gir loving Bell and decisive smart Bell are all three separate girls.
If anyone is wondering about Bubbles' weird experience, it was one of Mojo's powers. All three girls were experiencing similar events, but I used Bubbles for the story. Blossom was seeing Princess dead because of her mistakes and Buttercup was being chained down and was helpless. Mojo was created from their sins and this is the result. The other powers that he has obtained may or may not be explained later in this saga. The earthquakes and wind powers do have a reason for existing, but I don't know if you'll understand til a later part of the story.
I hope everyone enjoyed this chapter and is prepared for more. There are multiple stories in this saga and I hope you enjoy it. Criticism is welcome.
No one would have expected Blossom to get less than an A on a test. And yet, here she was, sitting in her desk, wide eyed and seemingly on the verge of crying. How could this happen? An F? What was going on in her head at the time of the test to do this poorly? Deep breath. Exhale. Okay. She reviewed her test, flipping through the stapled pages until she discovered she had missed an entire page. How could she have just passed up a page like that? Things were a little better now that she had discovered the reason for her failure. It was a careless mistake, one she would prevent from happening again.
This was the difference between Blossom and Buttercup; her ability to stop and think before acting out. She would have loved to cry and call herself stupid the moment she saw the test, but after taking a moment to look over her errors she realized she could have done fine on the test if not for overlooking the last page. Ms. Meryl would certainly understand allow her to explain why she didnt complete the test and give her the opportunity to correct the mistake.
Ya goin to Dexters today, or what? Buttercup asked as they left school. Blossom nodded. Well, pick up some soda on the way home wouldja? Heres some money Professor gave me to do it, but Im goin to be at Suzies house til way late workin on that science fair project.
You two are going to enter the science fair? That was different.
Were gonna simulate an earthquake using a model city and a motor were gonna put under the table. We think we could rig it to do some crazy stuff! Well, that explained it. Buttercup could seem so one dimensional sometimes. That wasnt true. She had more to her and it took Samantha to bring it out.
Blossom wore sweater over her school uniform, hugging herself tightly to keep warm. The sidewalks were nearly deserted at this time of day as dusk set in. She walked slowly, still thinking about Samantha and now, about Boomer. She didnt really understand them at first and considered them to be her enemies, but now they were two people that should be pitied. After all she thought she knew she still failed to see things the important things.
In her thoughts, she wasnt really paying attention to where she was going and was caught off guard as her shoulder bumped into someone elses. Why dont you watch where youre going? The arrogant, nasally voice was indisputably that of Princess. Oh! Its you. They stared at each other for a long time. Examining the other, a silent contest where the first to look away was the weaker.
Im on my way home. I dont have time to chat. Blossom began walking away from Princess. She didnt get more than 10 feet before she felt a hard blow at the back of her skull. She was sent at a light pole, snapping it in half on contact. She struggled to sit up on the pavement, holding her head and wincing at the terrible amount of pain caused by Princess strike. That didnt feel like it came from her. She doesnt have any guns or weapons at all. Then, how did she do it?
Princess stood with her arms crossed, looking condescendingly at Blossom. Did that hurt? Good. She laughed menacingly, rewarding herself for the cowardly act. Next time, maybe youll pay attention to where youre going. She turned to walk away.
Wait! If you want to hit me from behind, thats fine. You wanna gloat about it? Thats fine, too. Just tell me one thing before you go: How did you do that?
Do what? What did I do? Princess looked at the blue mailbox next to her. Are you asking about this? She gave a swift punch at the sturdy metal container, putting a huge dent in it and knocking it into the road to be hit by a truck. Envelopes were drifting downward like rain as the two girls stood just feet apart, glaring fiercely.
Blossom could never in her life have guessed how fast Princess would be. One moment she was there, the next moment she was gone. Blossom was startled. She had no time to be surprised because a second later she felt a hard blow to her stomach. Princess had reappeared with her fist squarely in Blossoms gut.
What? Did you think that I couldnt hurt you without my rockets? Blossom felt tears well up in her eyes from the pain. She couldnt understand what was going on. Princess had somehow acquired super strength. Youre not as smart as you think you are, you know that? Youre still sitting there, trying to figure it out.
Blossom was tired of this. She jumped backwards, obtained her footing and formed a fighting stance. Princess did nothing. She looked at Blossom with her provoking grin and mouthed the words, Bring it on. Blossom was flying at her with her fist pulled back, ready to give the first and last punch, but she was too slow. Princess disappeared again. Blossom deduced that she must be moving faster than her naked eye. She couldnt really vanish like that, so it must be super speed. This made her scared. Even she couldnt move that fast without immense stress on her body.
Up here, Blossom! It was Princess calling her from in the sky. She could fly! Whatever. Just beat her first and ask questions later. Buttercups strategy, right? The two girls engaged in combat above the city, Blossom now holding nothing back. This reminded her so much of the fight with Bell, a fight that showed her just how incapable she was. To Blossoms relief, Princess moves were starting to become a little slower. She must have used up her energy showing off earlier and now they seemed equally matched.
Kick. Punch. Dodge. Blossom unleashed a flurry of bodily attacks, all doing a fair amount of damage. Princess, however, stood her ground. She was determined to win this despite the pain that Blossom must be causing. Her eyes began glowing a shade of yellow, heating up exponentially every second. Blossom was now sure of it. She had heat vision, too. This confirmed her suspicion; Princess must have drunk Chemical X.
The beam shot at her with amazing speed and accuracy. Blossom had seen it coming, but never stood a chance of dodging it. Her course sent her for a building, which she passed through, causing a massive hole in the structure and then falling to earth with a BOOM! And finally, surrounded by a crater 20 feet wide. She thought she could dodge it or counter it with her own attack, but what happened?
Princess knew all too well what happened. She did it, thats what. She had trained her body and mind to work seamlessly together and to achieve any goal she was focused on. This was what she learned from watching Brick work tirelessly to perfect his fighting and to sharpen his super powers. This is what she had accomplished in the same manner and now she could see the fruits of her labor. Im gonna let you off easy this time. Dont expect me to be so nice if you mess with me again.
Blossom entered the bedroom exhausted and in no mood for conversation, so she ignored Bubbles when she was questioned about her sweater, which was now torn to shreds. Long day. And on top of everything, she forgot to grab the sodas she was charged with buying. She collapsed onto her bed without a thought of showering or changing.
Princess arrival home was far louder and happier. Her was eager to be near, drawn to the taste of victory. Bell was eager to listen to the story as well. Samantha pretended not to care, but even she couldnt deny her contempt for Blossom, the know-it-all bookworm. So, Princess told her story, probably a little too well because in her new version she had leveled a city block with her awesome powers.
The day wouldnt be easily forgotten. Especially because Dr. X was more than happy to put Princess in charge of the girls very important mission. I think its about time we show what happens when someone refuses the exclusive offers we give. The Rowdyruff Boys insulted us by thinking they could just say no like they did. Princess, you will lead this attack. Your job is to capture the facility and the two boys. Ill decide later if I want them alive or not.
Princess knew that this was an honor to be made commander over Bell. He had chosen her over two of his daughters. The only problem was that if she succeeded in capturing the Rowdyruffs she might also be killing Brick. He was only another boy and had been mean to her on several occasions, but her affection for him had grown so dangerous that she was sure to sabotage the mission, if not on purpose then subconsciously.
Lined up in front of her was Samantha, Her and Bell. This should be a piece of cake, girls. So, lets get this done, okay? The girls responded cheerfully, with an Aye, Aye! Silently, Princess prayed for Brick and Butch to somehow be safe from the inevitable doom she was about to deliver.
Well, I had a request for some action and I guess it was sorely needed. This isn't the pinnacle of it though. I don't know if I want to give this foursome any kind of team name yet. They're gonna give the Rowdyruff Boys hell, you can be sure of that.
Before hitting the big fight scenes, I needed this chapter to give more insight into Princess and Blossom and if I didn't give these two a conflict the later conflict might seem to out-of-the-blue.
I'll stop talking so much and give you the last point. I hope I communicated Blossom's rationality and need for understanding clear enough because as unlikely as it seems, that will be her most important quality by the end and without it, she may fail.
"Christmas bells those Christmas bells Ring out from the land Asking peace of all the world And good will to man"
It was a few days before Christmas Eve, a few months after the "Incident" that caused much turmoil at the station. People were getting their shopping done, wrapping presents, and decoration their trees. There were many members of the goodwill foundation to help the homeless.
The train was lopsided when it arrived at the station, because it carried a 9-foot man without shoes. The same person was also carrying a ton of boxes containing a number of objects. Also on board was a little girl who was carrying a bundle of candy canes. The two of them got of the train (in the process of relieving the load that tipped it) and started walking into Game Central Station. As usual, the Surge Protector stopped one of them.
"Name?" said Surge Protector, as he looked at his notepad.
"Niko Bellic" said the big man, who was obviously lying and aggravated.
Surge Protector gave him dirty a look.
"Fix-It Felix Jr."
"Anything to declare?"
Ralph grabbed a list from his pocket to Surge Protector. "Okay, now for the girl. Name?"
"Sarah Sugarmama" Said the girl, who was also lying, yet she was just being an annoyance.
"Name" said Surge, automatically.
"Vanellope von Schweetz"
"Anything to declare?" Surge inquired.
"A booger of candy canes."
"By a booger, I mean a gross. Ya-doy!"
Surge just looked at her. "...Alright, you two may go."
Ralph and Vanellope left the Sugar Rush station and entered Game Central.
"I can't believe you called 144 candy canes a BOOGER!" exclaimed Ralph.
"Come on Stinkbrain, It was just a joke!"
"I know... by the way, are those all single stripe?"
"I'm sure of it. Besides, the double stripe branches would of disappeared while taking the canes off the tree."
"Oh, I see. Was it hard to...OOF!"
Ralph accidentally walked into Satan (Pronounced Sa-TEEN), Bowser, and Zangief... simultaneously. Ralph also dropped all the packages that he was carrying.
"Sorry Ralph!" Said Bowser, as he picked up some wrapping paper.
"We should have watched where we were going!" said Satan, as he picked up a few of Ralph's packages.
"No," Said Ralph, as he collected the boxes from Satan "I'm pretty sure it was my fault this time."
"Are you going to Bad-anon tonight Ralph?" Zangief asked ask he placed some gifts into a bag.
"Yes, I just have to drop off my packages in my game." He responded as he collected the rest of his wares and left with Vanellope.
"Boy do you have the capacity to wreck everything." Said Vanellope, being her usual frisky self. "You wreck buildings, parties, candy lands, even economies!"
Ralph chuckled at Vanellope's little joke, then he asked Vanellope a question.
"Speaking of candy lands and economies, how is ruling Sugar Rush going?"
"It's going quite well; I talked to Professor Layton a few days ago to discuss the idea of a constitutional monarchy. It's the best democratic idea for our game so we can not confuse players with a new layout."
Ralph and Vanellope boarded the train to Fix-It Felix Jr. (Felix was able to build a special car for Ralph so he could fit). Ralph boarded his special car and Vanellope boarded the one in front of him.
"You know Vanellope, I am glad that tomorrow is Sunday and that the arcade is closed. It gives me more time to wrap presents."
Minnie's head was resting on Junior's chest while she peacefully dreamed of a dark and dreary underworld that she had since forgotten about. She lifted her head and looked up at her sibling. "Big brother?"
Junior yawned as he woke from his sleep. "Yea? What's up?"
"I wanna go home now." He looked at her confused. He didn't understand what she was talking about. He really had forgotten all about the underworld. "Brother, don't tell me that you have forgotten about our mother and father. Surely they are waiting for us to return?"
"I'm not sure I understand..." SMACK! It hit him. How could he have just forgotten everything?! Alright, time to leave. He simply summoned his scythe and smiled at her. They stood up and with a swipe of the blade a portal to the underworld was open.
"Halt reaper!" It was the same stupid angel. Why wouldn't he just give up and let them go on with their lives? It wasn't going to end until Junior shut his mouth once and for all. With that in mind, Junior summoned his new powers and transformed to his reaper form.
"Brother! This isn't needed. Please, let's just go." She cried to him for reason, but it wasn't going to change his mind. Junior was set on getting back at the bastard for all he'd been put through.
Junior leaped at the angel with such speed and ferocity that his pompous blue foe was caught off-guard. With a cheap slash at the angel's arm Junior drew first blood. That was a lucky blow as far as the angel was concerned. An under handed dirty demon trick that would cost the child.
In a few minutes Junior was on the ground covered in his own green blood. Minnie was once again standing on the side lines watching her brother helplessly. She covered her eyes as the angel raised his blade in preparation to deliver the final blow. And then...
Nothing. She heard nothing. Minnie removed her hands from her eyes to see her mother with her hand gripping the angel's right wrist, halting him from attacking. She was standing there expressionless holding back the titanic beast. Minnie realized that it wasn't her mother's strenght holding back the angel, but her glare that stopped him in his tracks. He was scared of her, just like everyone else that had ever been in contact with her.
Minnie scarcely remembered her mother holding her as an infant. Her mother wasn't very affectionate or easy to talk to, but the love was there, it was crystal clear if you let yourself see it.
Mandy let go of the angel allowing him to fall to the ground with a loud thud. She turned her attention to her daughter with those piercing red eyes. Minnie wasn't alive, but if she was she wouldn't have been able to breathe at the sight of her mother's soul stealing eyes. Without warning Mandy smiled, "I thought you were ready to go home? Are you going to stand there all day or do you like fighting angels?" She turned around, kneeled down, lifted Junior into her arms and carried him to the portal.
When they emerged on the otherside Junior reverted back and was once again reminded of current circumstances. Minnie's body was scattered on the floor. Uncle Jack, Aunt Sally, and his father were all standing around the corpse. Minnie and Junior approached the scene in silence.
Mandy looked at Sally. "You're good with a needle, right?"
Everything was dark at first until SpongeBob opened his eyes to see what happened to him. Huh? SpongeBob wondered as he looked around. He saw he was now in what looked like an auditorium that was full of teens for an assembly, and he was sitting by none other than Sam and Tucker. Sam, Tucker. SpongeBob said happily. Thank goodness youre here. Wheres Danny? But before they could answer, Mr. Lancer was on stage announcing, Youre future is not carved in stone, people. But it may be carved with a number 2 pencil. Sam and Tucker just groaned, Oh, please. SpongeBob just looked at them oddly. Uh guys? Whats going on here? Werent you listening, SpongeBob? Sam asked as she looked down at SpongeBob from the chair behind him. Yeah, Tucker also said next to him. It happens to be the most important test of your lifetime. Test? SpongeBob questioned. As most of you have forgotten, you will be taking the Career Aptitude Test on Saturday. Lancer announced as the words C.A.T appeared on a giant screen behind him. Do well like Miss. Fenton here who got the highest score in the history of the C.A.T. And a successful future will be assured. C.A.T.? SpongeBob questioned. I dont know anything about a cat test! he then stood up in his chair and yelled, WHATS GOING ON HERE?! This made everyone in the auditorium stare at him including Sam, Tucker, Jazz, and Mr. Lancer. Mr. Fenton, youre foolishness is a sign of what is to come if you dont put your mind on your C.A.T. test. Mr. Lancer said. Fenton? SpongeBob questioned about what he said. But my last name is SquarePants. But, Mr. Lancer just continued, Such as having a career at the Nasty Burger should you fail like Irving Third Degree Burn here, who got the lowest score in the history of the C.A.T., and you will be doomed to a career at the Nasty Burger. Hey, Irving said. Working at the Nasty Burger takes brains you know. If those 42 Nasty secret herbs and spices in our Nasty sauce overheated, it could cause an explosion that could take out a whole city block. But no one in the auditorium seemed to care, and he just left as he groaned. Oh, who am I kidding, my life is over. Then, Mr. Lancer held out a pamphlet. These arent just the answers to your test, these are the answers to your future. Then he put them in a briefcase and handcuffed to his wrist. So, study. Remember, its your future. Do you want fries with it? SpongeBob just go an odd look as he slumped back into his seat. But but I already have a job. Then Tucker whispered, Ghost fighting doesnt count as a real career, SpongeBob. Ghost fighting? SpongeBob questioned with a confused look.
Later on, SpongeBob was pacing around in the kitchen of Fenton Works. I dont get it. SpongeBob told himself. Im here in Amity Park, but wheres Danny? Why does his teacher think Im him? Why do Sam and Tucker think I fight ghost? then he looked on the table where a sample of the C.A.T. was. And WHY do I have to take a cat test? Then Jazz came in to see how he was doing. SpongeBob, why arent you preparing for your test? she asked. Dont you want to have a promising future? Jazz! SpongeBob called. You gotta help me! Something weird is going on, Dannys missing, and I cant get back home to Bikini Bottom! Jazz just looked at him oddly. SpongeBob, what are you talking about? What do you mean what am I talking about? Your brother Danny. Ever since I landed here, I havent seen him at all. SpongeBob, youre my brother. Jazz told him. And all I want is for you to succeed. SpongeBob gasped in shock. But, Im not your brother. I dont even belong in this world! Danny does! Jazz just got a confused look. I think you might be a little stressed out by this test. But, dont worry. Im sure youll have a very promising future ahead of you. Then, SpongeBobs eyes suddenly widen in realization. Wait a moment the future. Come to think of it, this is just like what Danny told me earlier. Whos Danny? But SpongeBob just continued, If that battle from before had thrown me into that portal, then that must mean SpongeBob then put his hands on his head as he cried, OH Time Out! a voice shouted that caused SpongeBob to freeze when he was about to fall over and Jazz to stop when she was about to sneeze. Suddenly, a portal appeared, having Clockwork come out along with another ghost that was asleep. So, it is true. Clockwork said as turned into a child and floated past SpongeBob and Jazz. It would seem that the path of this story will now be walked by someone else this time. Then Clockwork took out a medallion and put it over the young ghosts neck, causing her to wake up. Huh? What? the ghost wondered. Where am I? Amity Park, before you were born. Clockwork answered as he turned into an old man, and then pointed at the frozen SpongeBob. That there is a sponge, my employers believe him to be a threat to the world this time around. Will you be a dear and dance a little dance for our guest. He asked as he turned into an adult. Then the ghost glared angrily just as Clockwork pushed a button on his staff. Time In! Clockwork disappeared, and then time began moving again. SpongeBob fell on the ground shouting, NO! Then Jazz sneezed as SpongeBob got up in front of her, grabbing her shirt as he shouted, Whatll I do, Jazz? Im not allowed to be here! This is where you live. Jazz answered oddly until she spotted the ghost behind him. But if you really feel that way, I dont want to see you or anything you might do here in the next several minutes. She lied as she began to walk out. SpongeBob just groaned in frustration. Aww So much for getting her smart help. But then he turned around and spotted the ghost behind him, causing him to scream. Aah! Who are you? I am Box Lunch! the ghost shouted. Daughter of the Box Ghost and the Lunch Lady! Oh SpongeBob said now understanding. I guess if Danny were here, he would say, Yikes!. And now you will face the test of my box and lunch faced doom! Box Lunch shouted as she made a bunch of boxed food float around her. And now- and you probably knew this was coming- beware! SpongeBob looked around unsure what to do. Oh no, what do I do? he frantically looked around until he smiled. I know! Ill look for Danny! Hell take care of Lunch Box. He sped off as Box Lunch shouted, Lunch Box? I AM BOX LUNCH! And you shall not run away from me!
Outside the Nasty Burger, Mr. Lancer was laughing until his Nasty Burger suddenly floated away from him. Fast Food Nation! he said in shock. Inside the Nasty Burger, SpongeBob suddenly bursts through the front doors as he yelled, Im looking for someone by the name of Danny Phantom here! Everybody in the restaurant just stared at SpongeBob until their nasty burgers, fries, and drinks started floating around. Then Box Lunch phased in and tackled SpongeBob onto a table and pinned him down. Everyone started screaming and running out of the restaurant. Prepare to taste defeat, and perhaps a nice side salad with that. Box Lunch nicely said. Uh SpongeBob said as he weakly smiled. Sure. Too bad! Box Lunch yelled. You shall feast on my empty calories of doom! SpongeBob yelled, and then managed to throw Box Lunch off of him and stand up. But then Box Lunch lunged a bunch of food at SpongeBob, knocking him over the front counter, and allowing him to hear a conversation. Lets get out of here, the Nasty Burger employee said. No! You cant leave! Irving shouted. As a duly deputized Nastronaut, you took an oath to protect the Nasty Sauce from overheating at all cost. At minimum wage? the girl employee said. I dont think so. Then she and the other employee left. Then Irving followed and shouted out the door. You can kiss Employee of the Month goodbye! SpongeBob came out from behind the counter after hearing the conversation, Hmm This gives me an idea. And Ill bet Danny would do the same thing also. SpongeBob said as he grabbed the condiment packets. Of course I remember him telling me that this caused disastrous consequences later on. But, Im sure its no big deal. He then ran over to the stove and heated up the packet. Box Lunch had lifted up a bunch of condiment packets as she smirked. Prepare forHuh? But SpongeBob had slid out holding a smoking ketchup packet. Fire in the hole! he yelled as he threw the packet toward the ghost just as it exploded. But when the explosion was about to hit SpongeBob, he quickly blew a protective bubble with his bubble wand that pushed the protected SpongeBob out. Outside the Nasty Burger, Sam and Tucker were on the ground just as SpongeBob fell flat on his face next to them. SpongeBob, who was that ghost you were fighting? Tucker asked. Sam helped SpongeBob up as he mumbled due to the fact that there was a large yellow envelope stuck on his face. What was that? Tucker asked confused. SpongeBob pulled off the envelope and answered, Sorry about that. But, I ran into Box Lunch, who just so happens to be the daughter of the Box Ghost and the Lunch Lady. Yikes. Sam and Tucker both said in unison. Ah ha! SpongeBob yelled in triumph. I knew he wouldve said Yikes. Then he looked down and spotted Clockworks Time Medallion, and he picked it up. I know this thing What is that thing you had on your face? Tucker asked about the envelope. SpongeBob looked at the envelope he was holding, and he opened it up to see something. Holy krabby patties! These are the answers to the cat test! he said in shock. These are the ones Danny told me about! SpongeBob, what the heck are you talking about? Sam asked. Who is this Danny you keep bringing up? And what are you gonna do now that you have the answers? Tucker asked. SpongeBob had a puzzled look as he looked at the answers and the Time Medallion in each hand. He instead turned around and wondered out loud. Where is Danny? Why do I have the answers instead of him? WHATS GOING ON HERE?!
At Casper High, SpongeBob was now walking with Sam and Tucker in the halls since he apparently now goes to that school. SpongeBob, youre really doing the honest thing. Tucker asked. I must say, SpongeBob, this has to be the most honest thing youve done. Sam smiled. Thanks, guys. SpongeBob said as he turned around and smiled. Danny mightve cheated, but I certainly wont. And who knows? Maybe the future will be better this time. Sam rolled her eyes. There he goes again with this imaginary Danny person of his. SpongeBob reached the Faculty Lounge and took a deep breath as he knocked on the door. This is it. SpongeBob thought. Ill prevent this horrible future from ever happening. Of course I have no idea what it might lead to later on. But then he began to sadden. But what if it still happens because I end up failing that test for Danny if he never comes back to take it? Then hell certainly have a horrible future for sure and itll be my fault this time. Then, the door opened and Mr. Lancer came out. Yes, Mr. Fenton. Actually, its Mr. SquarePants. SpongeBob kindly corrected. Mr. Lancer just frowned and SpongeBob giggled nervously as he said, Uh Mr. Lancer I have something I need to give you. Its the the When SpongeBob was about to pull out the test answers from out of the back of his pants, he stopped and screamed, I CANT DO IT! then he ran away crying with Mr. Lancer staring oddly. Sam and Tucker had surprised looks as they ran to follow SpongeBob.
Later on in Dannys room or for now, SpongeBobs room, he was with Sam and Tucker as he was telling his story to them. So like I said, SpongeBob explained. This is Dannys room and you are his friends as am I. Im also from the world of Bikini Bottom. Tucker couldnt help but giggle. Bikini Bottom? SpongeBob laughed also. Yeah, it is a wonderful place to live. Sam just frowned as she asked, But, if what youre saying is true then explain that thing. She pointed to the Time Medallion SpongeBob was holding. SpongeBob held it out and explained, This is a Time Medallion. This happens to belong to a ghost called Clockwork. Clockwork? Tucker questioned. It sounds like someone from the future. Future. SpongeBob said remembering something, and then he turned to the C.A.T. test answers on the table. He walked over to it, as Sam stood up and said, SpongeBob, first you chicken out in returning it and now youre gonna cheat? Of course Im not gonna cheat. SpongeBob answered. Im not even gonna take the test. Not take the test. Tucker questioned. But what about your future? Im already a great fry cook. SpongeBob smiled. Besides even if I do look at the answers, it wouldnt matter anyway. Danny will be here to take the test. Where else could he have gone? Sam and Tucker looked at each other as SpongeBob begins to slowly open the envelope. But then, SpongeBob just tears it open and takes out the answers staring at them for a few seconds until a giant glow came into the room. They see its someone that looks like a combination of the ghosts, Skulker and Technus. Sam and Tucker sigh in relief until they say, I mean Oh no, a ghost. SpongeBob gasped in fear at who he saw. Who Who are you? I am SkulkTech 9.9, the future Ghost Worlds greatest hunter. Skulker introduced. Then Technus introduced, With its greatest techno villain as his operating system. You guys are working together now? SpongeBob asked. Is that an ew or a yikes? Tucker asked. SpongeBob struck a thinking pose. Uh I think Danny might make this an ew moment. What do you guys think? But while he wasnt paying attention, SkulkTech made a bunch of large metal tentacles come out that grabbed SpongeBob and swung him around. SpongeBob! Sam yelled. Why arent you going ghost? Because I cant go ghost SpongeBob yelled as he swung into Sam and Tucker, knocking them out of the room. Then SkulkTech pulled SpongeBob close as Skulker said, Say goodbye Then he lowered him to Technus. Ghost sponge. What sponge? SpongeBob asked in a scared tone. But right when they were about to finish SpongeBob off, there was a beeping tone. Someones hacking into the system again? Skulker asked. I thought we fixed that? We did. Technus mentioned. It mustve accidentally synced up with somebody elses PDA! Then their jets operated as they flew out of the room intangible, taking SpongeBob along with them. While the three were flying in the air out of control, Skulker yelled, What are you waiting for? Activate the Purple Back Gorilla Override! Dont tell me how to do my job! Technus snapped back. While they were flying, SpongeBob struggled out of their mechanical claws, and when he got out, he screamed as he fell toward the ground. But, SpongeBob managed to grab onto a flagpole. Phew, SpongeBob said in relief. Glad thats over. At least this flagpole isnt a fake. But then it suddenly broke having SpongeBob fall into a dumpster. Well, at least I ditched that SkulkTech guy. But then a metal tentacle suddenly grabbed SpongeBob and shocked him. Youre not in your ditch yet. Skulker said. But well gladly dig one up once weve finished you. Technus added. While SpongeBob was still trapped, he suddenly heard a voice call out, I wouldnt bet on that! Then SpongeBob saw Sam and Tucker running toward him as Tucker used his PDA to shut down SkulkTech and he landed on top of a street light unconscious. Thanks for the help, guys. SpongeBob told his friends as he stood up. You know, SpongeBob, Tucker said. I dont understand why you couldnt just go ghost. I told you I cant. SpongeBob mentioned. Never mind that for now, Tucker. Lets just see if we can get this thing off. Sam said as she and Tucker tried getting the claw off of SpongeBob. But then they stop when they spot SkulkTechs medallion fall off and they all glow blue as they disappear.
They soon fly out of the Time Portal and into Clockworks realm. Where are we? Tucker asked as he, SpongeBob, and Sam look around. I know this place. SpongeBob recognized. This is Clockworks lair. We got here right after his medallion fell off. Sam remembered. And I think I know how to get us back. Tucker said as he grabbed a Time Medallion. Ah ha! but he realized he was still here. Nothing huh? No, but nice bling. Sam joked as she walked off somewhere. SpongeBob stared at the medallion as he wondered, I have the strangest feeling something is supposed to happen next, but I dont know what. Is it this, SpongeBob? Sam asked as he and Tucker walk over to she whats shes looking at. On a portal, they see Dark Dan Phantom shooting ecto-blast everywhere in Amity Park as he smirked evilly. SpongeBob gasped. Its Dannys evil future self. Actually, I think Im seeing YOUR future and youre kinda a jerk. Sam told SpongeBob. What?! SpongeBob asked in shock. But that cant be! Then they watch more to see a bunch of futuristic police cars, helicopters, and tanks surrounding Dark Dan. But he just smirks and fires his Ghostly Wail at them, blowing it all away. Okay, youre REALLY a jerk. Sam told SpongeBob again. SpongeBob just had a shocked look. But thats not supposed to happen. Dark Dan is Dannys evil future self. Then he crossed his arms and frowned. Besides Theres no way I can ever grow up to be that ugly. Alright, SpongeBob, just tell me one thing. Sam said. Who IS this Danny guy and where is he? SpongeBob just shrugged and Tucker turned to SkulkTech with his PDA. Lets see if this future boy knows anything about but then SkulkTech floated in the air and went through the Time Portal. I didnt do it. I did. A voice called out and they turn to see Clockwork. I sent him back to his own time, or should I say forward to his own time. Clockwork explained as he turned into an old man. You see, time moves forward and backward, repeating all its moments Oh, why do I bother, you probably dont even understand. Clockwork! SpongeBob said as he smiled in joy. Thats Clockwork? Tucker asked. SpongeBob SquarePants, Clockwork said as he turned into a child, looking at the sponge. I can see youve been doing a few things lately. Yes, I have. SpongeBob said. I was hoping you can tell me what Im doing here in the past and where Danny is. Clockwork answered, You have stepped through my Time Portal and reached a certain point of time. He then turned into an old man. As for Danny, well Im looking at him right now. Really? SpongeBob asked excitedly and looked around. Where? Where? Uh SpongeBob? Sam said as she pointed to him. I think he means you. Me? SpongeBob asked in confusion. I cant possibly be Danny. How should I explain this in terms even you can understand? Clockwork explained, now an adult. You see you have caused a disruption in the time stream which has caused a Time Paradox. Time Paradox? SpongeBob asked puzzled. Yes, Clockwork nodded, now an old man. You are now serving in the place of Danny Fenton, and now everything Danny has ever done in his past has now been done by you. Me? SpongeBob asked in shock. You mean Im now Danny Fenton? Correct again, SpongeBob. Which also means he is now you. the child Clockwork pointed at the Time Portal which shows Dark Dan lift up a car and throw it. Oh, tartar sauce. SpongeBob said as he slapped his forehead. I guess that means I really am now living the moment where Danny cheats on his cat test and becomes evil. But then he gets a smile as he pounds his fist into his hand. But it also means I can prevent it before it happens by not cheating. On the contrary. The old man Clockwork said approaching SpongeBob. Just because youre walking in someone elses shoes now, doesnt mean you can alter it however you like. Time must move the way it was meant to be and must walk the same path no matter whos walking down it. SpongeBob had a confused look. Im not quite sure what that meant exactly. But if it means I have to go through all the things Danny went through I WANNA GO BACK HOME! he then ran away screaming. WHAHAHAHAHA! The adult Clockwork then pushed a button on his staff. Time Out! SpongeBob then froze and ran backwards to where he was before. WHA! SpongeBob then stopped. Whoa, did I just cry backwards. You cannot outrun time. Clockwork mentioned. Oh, yes I can. SpongeBob said as he began to run away as fast as he could. Time Out! the old man Clockwork said as he stopped SpongeBob again and made him run backwards into a wall repeatedly. I could do this all day. Clockwork stated as he turned into an old man. But, I have a schedule to keep. Once SpongeBob was frozen again, Clockwork was an adult again grabbed his scythe and went up to SpongeBob. How is it that he can freeze time for SpongeBob, but not us? Tucker asked Sam, who was frozen in time. Sam? he waved his hand in front of her, but then looked at his medallion in realization. I knew these medallions were good for something, its like a get out of time free card. Clockwork went up to SpongeBob with his scythe. Like I said, time must walk on the same path. When he was about to slice SpongeBob, Tucker grabbed his scythe. Sorry, no sudden death overtime in this game. He threw a Time Medallion to SpongeBob and Sam. Once SpongeBob was unfrozen, he looked around. Hey, what happened? Sam smiled as she held her medallion. We leveled the playing field. Just get the bad guy- You three have seen too much. You three must be eliminated before you permanently alter the time stream. Clockwork stated. Then a bunch of different time versions of Clockwork appeared. Nowhere to run. SpongeBob looked around franticly. Think, Sponge. What would Danny do? then he spotted the Time portal. Sam, Tucker, this way! he grabbed a hold of his friends and quickly jumped through the Time Portal. Just as I expected you to do. Clockwork smirked.
Soon, SpongeBob, Tucker, and Sam reached the future of Amity Park. Man, Tucker said amazed. If this is what we have to look forward to, Im definitely not taking the C.A.T. SpongeBob sighed as he looked around. Its worse than I thought. And now Im partly responsible for it. Youre definitely responsible for it. Valerie said as she showed up on her jet sled and shot an ecto-blaster at SpongeBob. SpongeBob quickly ducked as he screamed, Valerie! he kept running away as Valerie kept shooting at him. You have to listen to me! I dont belong here! Its no use playing innocent with me. Valerie shouted as she shot a net at SpongeBob which he got trapped in. SpongeBob whimpered as Valerie walked up to him. Why must I always get attacked whenever I go to the future? Been waiting a long time for this. Valerie growled as she aimed a large cannon at SpongeBob. Goodbye and good- Valerie, no! Tucker cried as he and Sam got in front of SpongeBob. Dont shoot! Sam also cried. Valerie got a shocked look. Sam? Tucker? Its not possible! This is a trick! You cant be alive! Wait? Tucker said in shock. Not alive? Thats our future? Im DEFINITELY not taking the C.A.T. The C.A.T. Valerie wondered. Thats the last time I saw you alive. The big explosion at the Nasty Burger, you, Tucker, SpongeBobs family. Then she angrily aimed the cannon at SpongeBob. And it was all your fault! But then, an ecto-beam suddenly hit Valerie, knocking her away as she screamed. Then SpongeBob, Sam, and Tucker look up to see Dark Dan Phantom floating above them. Actually, that was me. He said as he looked at SpongeBob. And you eventually. Then Dark Dan landed in front of them. Sam and Tucker, its been a while. Ten years to be accurate. Then he waved a green beam at the two, freezing them. So to what do I owe this little blast from the past? then he spotted Sam wearing a Time Medallion. Clockwork. Meddling again Wait just a darn minute! SpongeBob yelled out. How can I turn into you? I mean, I dont even have ghost powers! Dark Dan looked at SpongeBob, and smirked. Looks like I was a lot more foolish and stupid then I remember. But then a blast suddenly hit Dark Dan, knocking him back into a building. But he quickly got up to see Valerie with her wrist-ray smoking. When she tried firing at him again, Dark Dan flew over and grabbed her arms. SpongeBob managed to get out of the net just as he saw Dan punch Valerie away to the ground. I suppose for our respect for our past I should let you live. Dark Dan said angrily as he grabbed her. But thats not how I work. Then he punched Valerie away with SpongeBob watching. Oh no, Valerie! he quickly stretched out his arm around a fire hydrant and pulled himself back as he slingshots himself ahead of Valerie and has her crash into him to soften her landing. It didnt hurt SpongeBob one bit. SpongeBob stood up just as Valerie opened her eyes. Youre from the past, arent you? SpongeBob wasnt sure how to answer. Uh he, eh, eh, eh. I guess you can say that. Almost forgot how sweet and adorable you were back then. Valerie said before she passed out. SpongeBobs eyes brightened up. You think Im sweet and adorable? then his eyes widen. Oh no, almost forgot about Sam and Tucker. Then he quickly ran away and spotted Dan in front of Sam and Tucker about to kill them. SpongeBob angrily picked up a rock and threw it at Dans head, causing him to drop Sam and Tucker, unfreezing them. Quick, guys! Run! SpongeBob called out. Run? Dark Dan said as he smirked. Where are they going to go? Then he uses his Ghostly Wail while SpongeBob covers his ears and Sam and Tucker stop to see the Fenton Works building along with the Op-Center about to fall on them. But Tucker managed to tell Sam, For the record, I blame you. SpongeBob gasped in shock as the building fell on top of Sam and Tucker, and when he tried to run after them, Dark Dan grabbed the back of his shirt and picked him up. Uh, uh, uh. Dark Dan smirked. SpongeBob got a horrified look when he saw the building fall on Sam and Tucker, but then Dark Dan suddenly shocked him with an ecto-beam and tossed him toward the building. SpongeBob got back up and suddenly smiled as he spotted the two Time Medallions on the ground. Hey, its their Time Medallions. That means theyre back in their own time period safe and sound. He looked at his own Time Medallion around his neck. And with this off, I can- What? Dark Dan said as he picked SpongeBob up by his necktie. Go back with them? Theyre doomed anyway, and youre not going anywhere if you cant remove your Time Medallion. Dark Dan took off SpongeBobs Time Medallion, and then shoved it in his mouth having SpongeBob swallow it as he passed out from exhaustion.
Much later, SpongeBob groaned as he began to wake up. But he realized he was unable to move his arms due to the fact that he was tied up with a glowing rope. The first thing he saw was a statue of the Fentons along with Sam and Tucker. Mr. and Mrs. Fenton? Sam? Tucker? Jazz? SpongeBob wondered as he saw an inscription on the statue. Gone but Not Forgotten? then he turned to see a statue of Mr. Lancer only it just had the inscription Gone. Aww. Then he looked around at the ruins of the Nasty Burger. What happened to the Nasty Burger? Strange how one massive fireball of highly combustible condiments can ruin your whole future. Dark Dan said as he came over. Dark Dan. SpongeBob said a bit scared. This is all a horrible mistake. You think its a mistake? Dark Dan asked. The only great mistake you ever made was turning into me. He then made a portal appear in front of him. But thats the thing, you see. SpongeBob explained. Im not supposed to become you. A friend of mine is your real past self, and he was able to stop you. Just like- Like you will? Dark Dan asked as he changes to look just like SpongeBob. Oh please. Whoever your friend is doesnt seem to exist anymore. And even if you are my past self now, this just makes things a lot easier for me. He then grabbed SpongeBob and tossed him into the Ghost Zone as he screamed.
While SpongeBob was now in the Ghost Zone, he struggled to break free from the rope until he realized he was unable to. Well, here I am. SpongeBob said as he floated in the Ghost Zone, Floating helplessly in the Ghost Zone while my new evil future self, who was originally my friends evil future self, is walking around like me and planning to cheat on the cat test to assure his future of evilness. He sighed depressively. I guess this proves I cant defeat him like Danny did. I dont have any ghost powers or the strength and tallness to do so Im just me. But at least it cant get any worse than this. Well, well, well. SpongeBob turned to see a much more buff and tougher-looking version of the Box Ghost ahead of him. All this time we were wondering on how wed take the fight to you, and here you are wrapped up like a present. SpongeBob started to tremble in fright. B-B-B-B-Box Ghost? Beware Box Ghost said as he made energy into the shape of a box in his hand and shot it at SpongeBob, knocking him back into a fat Ember. Ember! SpongeBob exclaimed. You look kinda different. Did change your hair or is it your makeup? Or is it that I went to seed right after you destroyed my vocal cords with that Ghostly Wail of yours?! Ember angrily shouted. Uh no? but Ember just blasted SpongeBob away on her guitar. SpongeBob was knocked into the side of a wheelchair and he looked up to see an old Johnny 13. Uh You wouldnt happen to be Johnny 13, would you? SpongeBob asked nervously. Been waiting a long time for this, punk. Johnny growled as his Shadow blasts SpongeBob away as the future ghosts continued to beat up SpongeBob along with SkulkTech and Kitty who joined in. Come on, guys. SpongeBob tried to explain, but was weak from the beatings he took. Im not responsible for all this, I I am responsible, am I? SkulkTech grabbed SpongeBob with his claw as Skulker said, Of course you are, runt. Youre responsible for all the horrible that happened to your world and ours. To everyone you ever come in contact with. Technus added. Ember grabbed SpongeBob, and pushed him away, Your family, your friends, and most importantly us. The ghosts charged up their attacks about to finish off SpongeBob while he just floated there. Im doomed here. SpongeBob thought. I cant do what Danny would do if he were in this predicament. SpongeBob looked up to see the ghosts about to attack him, and he flinched with his feet in the air as he clacked them together. But then, they oddly glow green as a sonic wave appeared out of them that started to push the ghosts away as they screamed, and the rope holding him together disappeared. Once the wave stopped, SpongeBob opened his eyes to see he was still alive and that the ghosts were no longer there. He smiled and looked at his shoes. I may not have Dannys Ghostly Wail, but I have the next best thing. My Ghost Repel Shoes. But the real problem now is how will I get out of here and back to the present? What would Danny do? he stopped pondering when he thought of something. Go see Vlad! Well I dont think Danny would do that. But this time, Im doing what I would do. SpongeBob then used his Ghost Repel Shoes to jet over to Vlads portal.
Once SpongeBob came out of the Ghost Portal in Wisconsin, he heard a voice call, Come to kick a defenseless old man in his weakened state? SpongeBob turned around to someone sitting in a chair. Vlad, is that you? he saw Vlad turn around now old with a beard. Vlad! You look nice. I can see youre here in your naïve self. Vlad said as he walked over to SpongeBob. Thats something I havent seen in years. Mr. Vlad Masters! SpongeBob shouted as held onto his shirt. My evil future self, who really wasnt supposed to be my evil future self is in the present about to kill my friends. But, I cant get back because a medallion is inside me, but now- and I cant believe Im saying this- I need your help to get back before its too late! Vlad pushed SpongeBob off of him. Calm down, boy. You really expect me to help you? he turned away from SpongeBob sadly. You have done terrible things all these years, and now you expect me to believe you are not as you seem? Well no. SpongeBob answered sadly. The truth is I had my own evil future once. And it was one that I was able to stop on my own. But he didnt take away my friends lives or caused pain and misery to all of my enemies like Dannys did. But now that Dannys not here and his horrible future is now mine he got a determined look. I have to stop it. Vlad do you still have those Ghost Gauntlet thingies? Vlad went to a table and grabbed the Ghost Gauntlets as he put them on. You mentioned before that you have a medallion lodged within you keeping you rooted in this time period. Right, SpongeBob nodded. And I cant wait that long for it to come out on its own. But if you can use those retractable claws to pull it out of me, Ill pop over to the present. Or I could just destroy you now and prevent this future. Vlad mentioned as the claws of the Ghost Gauntlets came out. Didnt think of that. SpongeBob had a scared look with his mouth wide open as a shadow on the wall showed Vlad using the Ghost Gauntlets as he stuck it in SpongeBobs mouth as he screamed. But Vlad was easily able to pull the medallion out of his body. When it was over, SpongeBob was panting heavily as he looked at Vlad. You didnt destroy me. Foolish sponge, Vlad said. I said I COULD destroy you. I never said I would. SpongeBob smiled thankfully. But then he quickly ran to a table and put on the Specter Deflector. Then he ran over to Vlad and grabbed the Ghost Gauntlets from him. Thanks, Vlad. SpongeBob as he glowed blue. Ill always remember this. Even when Im kicking your butt with my friends. Then he disappeared back into the present.
In the present, Dark Dan was laughing evilly after having stuck the Fentons, Sam, Tucker, and Mr. Lancer to the boiler of the Nasty Burger when it was about to explode. Then Dark Dan stopped when he heard familiar screaming. Then he spotted SpongeBob falling out of the sky, wearing the Ghost Gauntlets as he punched Dark Dan away. WHAM! SpongeBob then walked over to everyone as he said, Dont worry, you guys. You may not technically be my family, but your Dannys family, and I wont let the people he loves be destroyed. Then he looked at Mr. Lancer, who had a look of shock. Oh, and Ill save you too. But then, an Ectoplasmic Energy Constrict tied around SpongeBob, and pulled him away into Dark Dans grasp. You actually came back. Dark Dan glared at SpongeBob. You must be an even bigger fool than I thought. If you were really my new evil future self, you would know. SpongeBob replied. Then getting rid of you will be easy. Dark Dan smirked as he punched SpongeBob away. FWHAM! SpongeBob hit a light post, but was able to get back up and see Dark Dan coming straight at him. SpongeBob gasped as he quickly rolled out of the way, having Dark Dans punch miss. Even if you do have ghost powers of your own, I still have my own sponge-like abilities! SpongeBob smiled as he held out the Specter Deflector. Like the Twirl de Specter Deflector! SpongeBob said as he quickly twirled over to Dark Dan and slapped the Specter Deflector on as he grunted in pain. And the Karate Slice with a Helping of Ghost Gauntlets! SpongeBob smirked as he jumped in the air and flew toward Dark Dan with a karate chop while wearing the Ghost Gauntlets. Dark Dan crashed into a gasoline truck, and his fiery hair caused it to explode. SpongeBob covered his eyes from the brightness until he wiped his forehead and walked away. But Dark Dan managed to come out and remove the Specter Deflector. While he was still walking away, SpongeBob gasped when Dark Dan grabbed him by his necktie. What makes you think you can possibly defeat me? Dark Dan angrily asked SpongeBob. SpongeBob angrily answered, Because I made a promise. Dark Dan just laughed. To who? Your friends family? No! SpongeBob yelled. I made a promise to Danny! then he clacked his shoes together, causing the Ghost Repel Shoes to activate and push Dark Dan away from him. Thats not possible! Dark said in shock while he was on the ground. How can that thing be able to defeat me? SpongeBob just walked over to Dark Dan, and said, I may not have ghost powers like Danny, or not be strong and tall as him. But there is one thing I have that Danny doesnt. he cleared his throat and suddenly jumped in the air with a blissful, joyful, and ecstatic smile. MY CHEERFUL, HAPPY, AND OPTIMISTIC LOOK ON LIFE!!! Dark Dan just continued to have a shocked look as SpongeBob activated his Ghost Repel Shoes and it pushed Dark Dan all the way into building. SpongeBob then landed on the ground as he got a proud look. If only my friends could see me now. Then Dark Dan pushed himself out of the building now looking beat up. So thats it, isnt it? SpongeBob smirked. Oh yeah. Then he took out the Fenton Thermos and sucked Dark Dan into it. Dark Dan groaned as he got sucked in. Im too weak to escape, and youre too late to save them. Once SpongeBob closed the lid on the thermos, he got a happy smile. I did it and I actually did it as me. But then he turned around and saw the boiler about to explode with Dannys friends and family still on it. Oh, barnacles! He tried running as fast as he can to it, but knew his own running wouldnt be fast enough in time to reach it. Im not gonna make it! NOOO!!! SpongeBob yelled as he jumped toward the boiler. But then it already exploded as the force pushed SpongeBob back while he was in the air. But then, time suddenly stopped. A portal suddenly appeared, and out came a child Clockwork. He put a Time Medallion around SpongeBobs neck, and unfroze him. No, dont hurt me! I tried my best! SpongeBob shouted until he opened his eyes. Huh? Clockwork? Clockwork smiled as he pointed somewhere, and SpongeBob turned to see Jack, Maddie, Jazz, Sam, Tucker, and Mr. Lancer completely safe. Theyre okay! SpongeBob smiled in relief. But how? Time is like a story. Clockwork told SpongeBob. Each time it is told, it can be told in many different ways. Whether it is told by the same person or by someone else. You really did know what was going on all this time. SpongeBob said, now understanding. You knew all of this wasnt supposed to happen this way. Time is always moved on the same path with many different options. Clockwork stated. You had the chance walk the same path Danny took. You had the choice to change it the way you wanted, but instead you risked everything to try and protect the ones your friend cared for. SpongeBob giggled in embarrassment. Well, I had to. I just couldnt let everyone go like that. Speaking of which, where IS Danny anyway. Clockwork answered, As we speak, he now walking the same path you once took in your past. Telling his own story in his own way. SpongeBobs eyes began to widen as he seemed to immediately understand. You mean The old man Clockwork winked. Whoa, SpongeBob said still in shock. But then he turned back to Clockwork. You think we can go and see him? Please! Very well. Clockwork nodded as held up his staff. Time Out!
Here's the first story of "Your Future Enemy" Where we have SpongeBob in the Danny Phantom movie "The Ultimate Enemy"
Plot: When SpongeBob lands back in time in Amity Park, he is surprised to see hes when Danny Fenton was about to take the C.A.T. test. And not only that he seems to be playing the role of Danny while also being himself due to the fact that people seem to keep thinking that he belongs in this world no matter how many times he denies it. When SpongeBob comes across the answers to the C.A.T, he tells Sam and Tucker that he will do the honest thing and return them. But then chickens out when he starts thinking he would still fail if he takes the test unless Danny were to somehow show up. But during an attack by SkulkTech, he, Sam, and Tucker end up in Clockworks realm, discovering SpongeBobs possible future although he knows that its supposed to be Dannys, and even learns how he caused a Time Paradox when he and Danny fell through the Time Portal. When he soon ends up in the future of Amity Park, he not only finds out hell now be an evil ghost in the future, but now has to keep Dark Dan from destroying Dannys friends and family. SpongeBob now has to walk the same path Danny took and even though he doesnt have ghost powers like Danny did, he can still take on Dark Dan by thinking like Danny.
Like I said before, I won't be using every scene in the movie, just the ones where Danny actually appeared and was within earshot of. But this story does have differences from the movie.
Well, I hope you enjoy and comment. And next time will be Danny in Future Shock (the SpongeBob story I wrote)
Last time on Danny Phantom: Unplugged ------------------------- Danny gasped quietly. Whoever this person was, they knew his secret. ------------------------- Danny jumped out of his seat and stood next to his chair. He glared silently, daring whoever was possessing his computer to make their next move. He took a battle stance ready to attack or if necessary, retreat. Danny tensed at a mechanical sound indicating the strange cursor had returned. It beeped again and moved the vertical line quickly to the right leaving a trail of words behind it. The Matrix has you Danny Danny cocked his head. What the heck was the Matrix, and how did it have him? Wait. Very funny Tuck. he said taking a step forward. No longer feeling tense, he sat down and reached for his cell phone. The plastic felt cool to the touch as he flipped it open and pressed 4. Tuckers PDA. He held the phone to his ear and counted the rings. I cant believe I fell for this, I am SO gonna kill him. Briiing. 1. Briiing. 2. Briiing. 3? Wait, what? Tucker never lets his PDA ring more then twice. Unless hes with someone, put it down, or hes trying to prank me with his computer. Danny sighed and caught his breath in his throat as someone picked up on the other line. But it wasnt Tucker. --- Ooh, cliffy
JUST KIDDING! I was gonna leave it here but, I figured I owe it to ya. --- Tuckers moms voice swam through the earpiece. Hello Danny! She said cheerfully. Uh, hi Mrs. Foley. He said trying to sound a bit more natural. Um, is Tucker there? No actually, did you want to talk to him? Um, sure if I could please. He said. Then almost as a last thought, he added. So, why didnt Tucker answer? He asked trying to be polite. Usually his PDA is never out of his sight for ANYTHING. Mrs. Foley laughed a little over the line at the well known fact. Yes, well Tucker has gone to a dinner theater with his father and the restaurant he went to wouldnt allow electronics because in the show, they spray a bit of water on the audience. She chuckled shortly. Poor kid, he almost went into withdraw. Danny felt the blood drain from his face. He laughed nervously. "Um, thanks Mrs. Foley. I'll call Tucker later." He didn't say goodbye in his haste to get off the phone and drove his attention back to his computer. He put down the phone next to his keyboard and looked back towards his computer. It wasnt doing anything. It was just sitting there. Like it was waiting for him to do something. Positive it was a ghost, he glared and stood up. Alright, he said ready for anything. Who wants to get their butt kicked this time? Once again, the computer blinked sending the green cursor flying across the screen leaving another trail of words behind. What they said, however, puzzled Danny. Follow the Yellow Brick Road Danny raised an eyebrow. What the Dude, he said beginning his witty banter. You really need to find some more better quotes. He said reaching slowly towards a nearby drawer. He slid it open and pulled out a certain green striped cylinder with the word Fenton on it. I mean seriously, Wizard of Oz was so many years ago. Try something more recent like, He swung the Fenton thermos into firing position. Hasta la vista baby. He said attempting the Arnold Schwarzenegger type accent. He uncapped the thermos and pushed the button on the side causing a bright bluish light to burst from of the top. After a few seconds the light subsided and Dannys computer was back to normal. Dannys IM window showed on the screen with the text he had previously written. He glanced at the times and oh crap. 9:29?!? He exclaimed pushing any concern about his most recent ghost encounter to the back of his mind. He looked down towards the corner of the screen where the current time showed 9:38 in solid black. Based on the fact that when you're on an IM chat, time goes alot slower unless actively typing, he came to a conclusion. Sams not going to be happy with me He sighed inwardly. He surveyed the list of actions that he and Sam had done across the internet with the IM system and found that Sam had logged out at 9:32, great.
Probably on her way here in case I need ghost help. Danny thought annoyed.
He stood up and walked over to his bed where he fell backwards and gave a deep tired sigh. The sigh you would give to get out the most of your feelings and frustrations. Danny looked absently around his bedroom and allowed his thoughts to flow freely. School troubles, grades, friends, ghosts, secrets. But the one that stood out the most was, Which ghost was in my computer? Danny tilted his head towards the device.
Oh well, Ill check when I release it back into the zone. Probably just wanted to scare me or something. Well, it didnt work. Danny smirked to himself. But even though he claimed it was nothing, he knew that something was definitely up, and he had not seen the end of the new ghost. Not by a long shot. Suddenly, Danny heard a familiar sound. Another machine had come to life... by itself that it. This time, the printer. The smaller machine had busied itself making a humming noise as it printed something onto a blank sheet of paper. The printer stopped short and spit out the rest of the paper and let it rest in the tray. Danny rolled sideways off the bed and crawled towards his printer with slight caution. I thought I got rid of that ghost... He thought to himself. He reached out with his right hand and grabbed the paper. His eyes examined the words with more caution. Turn around Danny... Danny raised an eyebrow and glared at the page. What the- The thought was unfinished as his eyes captured a single color. Black.
(Its early morning, but still dark; Danny Phantom is seen flying from GIW copters, all after him) Danny:(Deep, aggressive voice) You bozos cant stop me! Not as long as Im stronger than ever! Ill rip Vlad in half... and that Johnson kid isnt out of trouble either. Agent O: Danny Phantom! Surrender at once. Danny: Give me a break. (Lands) Theres not human or ghost that can stop- (As Danny speaks, the Sun rises and instantly, his body starts smoking and he is kneeling in pain; scream in pain) (The GIW are just as confused) Agent O: Maybe this isnt Danny Phantom after all. Agent K: How many other ghost kids are there? (Somehow, a part of Dannys costume extends an reaches into an alley and pulls him in) Agent O: Howd he do that?! (As Danny seems unconscious, the three circle him in fear and confusion; he awakes) Danny: Feels like I was cooked in an oven. (Sees the GIW coming in; fires a new ghost stinger, a bolt of lightning that shocks the copters, causing an overload of energy in the copters) My new toy has a mind of its own... (The copters escape as Dannys attack causes a short-circuiting) But your toys... your toys are risky, enough power and you risk being cooked! (Waves) Bye-bye! (Reverts to human, still aggressive, leaves) As soon as I can, Im going to the source of my current problem! (Danny walks out in his normal clothes, he observe himself) Too weak- (His body shifts, the red on his body turns black and he gains a black sweater) Much better. (Class, Danny sits with his feet on the table, wearing a dark sweater) Lancer: Although the Ozone can protect us from solar radiation, some creatures are not as lucky as humans... (Sees Danny) Mr. Fenton, Id appreciate it if you paid attention! Danny:(Flatly)Id appreciate it if you shut up! (Everyone is shocked to hear this) (Cafeteria; Danny devours down a drumstick viciously) Sam: What was that about? Danny: The worlds forgotten me, my dads in the hospital, everyone thinks I did it... youre the smart one, you do the math! (Sam shows she takes offense with a glare) Dash:(Walks up) Hey, Fen-terror! You owe me a rematch, if my allergies werent acting up... (Danny pushes Dash; Dash is sent flying into a table; as Danny walks up to him, students gather behind chanting FIGHT, FIGHT! Danny looks back and glares at them, causing the chanting to die down; he walks to the doors to the hallway, where Tetslaff is there) Tetslaff: Where do you think youre going Fenton? Danny: Wherever I want... (Walks past her; as he reaches his locker to get his bag, he see Ricky Johnson Jr. walking proudly with a hand-held camera) Johnson. Ricky: Danny Fenton, was it? Sorry for your pops. Im just taking pictures of my time as a student here. Too bad your dad got maimed by Danny Phantom. Danny: You know, I never thought hed do something like that. Ricky: And you were wrong! Thinking him a hero is a bigger joke than your dad! Danny:(Leaning on the wall) Youre a joke, Johnson. You lied, didnt you? Phantom may have been a problem, but hes not a monster. Ricky:(Rudely) He is to me. I have my reasons to watch him fry, and I dont care if he was involved or not! Danny: My dad was innocent, and Phantom has saved millions. Ricky: Who cares?! As long as Danny boy gets toast, who cares if your dad cant walk or the town gets smoldered without the Phantom?! Whod believe you? (Smiles evilly, Danny coldly stares at him; holds a newspaper of Danny Phantom near Fentonworks on the cover) Pictures dont lie. (Danny fiercely grabs the young man by the shirt and lifts him up) Danny: You do, pal! Who paid you to lie about Danny Phantom? Ricky: No one did! Besides, I have my own personal reasons to see him splatter! I don't remember what I was doing near Fentonworks, but I saw my chance at payback. (Sarcastically) Where should I start? (Flashback of Ricky going to his car outside Casper High, which gets covered in meat, he turns to see a pre-emblem Danny battle the lunch lady) Ricky:(Voice over) It took me half my life saving to get the smell of meat of my new car! (New flashback of the school dance, Ricky brings a beautiful brunette to the from of the school when they see Danny Phantom battle the Dragon Ghost, the girl runs away screaming) My only girlfriend left me! (New flashback of Ricky on a laptop when an inside part of it comes flying out of the window, where he sees Danny battling the first mechanized Technus; Ricky glares) I failed my mid-terms! (Ricky is shown at Floody Waters, when the water is turned off by the employees when they see Danny battle Johnnys shadow, Ricky gets stuck on the now dry slide) I gained a slight claustrophobia that day... but then he went too far... (Flashback of the Nasty Burger explosion) Irving: Okay, we may need to fire some people to pay for the damages... Johnson, Ricky... that is all. Ricky: WHAT?! Why just me?! Irving: You have the highest paycheck. (As Irving leaves, Ricky sees Danny Phantom flying away with the C.A.T. answers, glaring at him; end of Flashbacks) Danny: Thats it?! You framed him for some stupid accidents?! (Danny lets him go; Ricky walks away while Danny glares at him) I think Ill pay a visit after school. (Later, after sun down; Maddie, with the goggles and hood on, is in GIW headquarters with Chief J, the boss of the GIW at the end of Double Cross My Heart, one of the leaders of GIW and the father of Ricky, who is also there) Maddie: Thanks to your son, Ill finally be rid of that Ghost boy. Chief J: I always told him, I didnt to raise some weakling. He had problems with that ghost kid, I tell him fight back... and all he said was it wont work. Im proud of you boy! Ricky: I told you I could do it pop! All I wanted was your blessings and the town to not treat me as some nobody. (Someone they didnt expect comes) Danny: Oh, you did something alright! And Im ticked... (They all look at the window to see who just entered) Ricky: You! Maddie: Think you can hide from us in that ridiculous new appearance? Danny:(Deep aggressive voice) I got nothing to hide, especially from an army of idiot hunters who couldnt catch a cold! Ricky: Joke all you want, pal! (Holds a newspaper of Danny Phantom near Fentonworks on the cover) Pictures dont lie. (Danny fiercely grabs the young man by the shirt and lifts him up) Danny: You do, pal! Ricky: I know what I saw! Danny: You didnt see me near the Fenton home when Jack Fenton was injured! Ricky: Well who else could have done it? Danny: What about the other ghost?! Green skin, fangs, bad hair and cape; ring any bells or do I have to ring it for you?! (Chief J presses a button on his glove, alerting his men) Chief J: Let go of my kid! I think whatever happened to you mouth and eyes must have rubbed of on your brain! (Danny does let go, but instantly grabs the older man with his right arm, lifting him up) Danny: Youre the head of this Goon Squad! If you dont get rid of that stupid reward, Im gonna- (The Guys in White burst in) Agent O: Dont move kid. Agent K: Dont even think about it! Danny:(Coldly) Why bother thinking it? (Throws the man in his arm at the men and flies out the window; Maddie fires at Danny, causing him to charge a full fist plasma blast at her, but stops abruptly as he realizes what hes about to do) Mom... what am I doing? (Puts his hands on the sides of his head and flies away, in shock) Maddie: As much of a threat he was before, hes somehow become worse! Danny: What is happening to me? (From Dannys POV, we see his hands) This didnt happen until... (POV ends) Theres only one group who can help me now. (As he flies, Vlad Plasmius is watching from above) Vlad: This is unexpected. This will be some much more enjoyable than I ever hoped! (Laughs in a somewhat insane, high-pitched voice) (Within the Ghost Zone, we see Danny reach the Observants Observatory, where they are all shocked to see him) Danny:(Normal voice) Observants, I need help. Observant leader: Youre a wanted ghost now! Tell me why we shouldnt lock you up? Danny: I helped Earth more times than you have. At least consider this a thank you for turning in Vortex. Observant Leader: What do you need from us? Danny: This look of mine, it comes from some black thing all over me. Get a piece of it... if its safe. Random Observant: What do you mean if its safe? Danny: See for yourselves... (An observant reaches out and black tentacle like objects come of the arms of Danny; as they back away in fear and confusion, Danny grabs one of the tentacles and pulls it off) Here. Observant who grabs it: Where did this thing come from? Danny: Part of the Ghost Zone... the darker part... Observant leader: It cant be... Danny: You know what this is? Observant leader: Of course, we created it... and in a way, so did you. (Hours later) Danny: So, what did your tests say? Observant: It is... its called the dark-shadow. It came from your dark self. (You dont need me to say how Danny reacts to this) Maybe its best if we show you. (He points the remote to an eye-shaped screen where an Octo-ghost gets covered in the dark-shadow and turns black with red eyes and attacks instantly) This substance was made to use his powers to good use, but we didnt just take his power, we took his evil insane mind. The subjects proved insane, the dark-shadow feeds of a hosts negative emotions: anger, hate, and greed... anything that causes aggression; up to the point where it is no longer controlling just their emotions. (The tentacle that Danny ripped off bursts through the wall and wraps itself around Dannys leg) Danny: Seems to like me more. Observant: Since youre similar to your evil other, youre more resistant to its grip on you... at least as long as you dont overuse its power, then its influence will be gaining control. Danny: Control? Thats what my mood swings are all about? Observant: Apparently, if you dont get rid of it... the emotional and mental grip on you will be complete. (See Danny leaving) Where are you going? Youve got to find a way to destroy that thing! Danny: Not yet, theres at least one bit of unfinished business Im not done yet. Observant Leader: Get rid of that thing! Danny:(Deeper voice) Not now! (Back in Amity Park, in the hospital; Maddie and Chief J are with Jack in the hospital bed) Jack: Maddie? Maddie: Rest Jack. The ghost boy will pay for what he did. Jack: Ghost boy? No, it was that ghost from Vlads party... the one in the white cape. Chief J: So there was another ghost... (Later, with Rick, pointing at him in his office) You lied to me! Ricky: Okay! So it was another Halloween reject! So what? Chief J: I cant someone in the family lie about a ghost attack for some vendetta. Its against everything the GIW was made for! Someone was harmed and all you wanted was payback! Youre fired from the junior division! And not just that... Im sending you to live with your uncle for the rest of the school year and grounded for that long too; no job, no money, no television! Ricky: What?! You cant do this! Chief J: I just did. (Pushes a button and speaks over the intercom) Get the guards; I got a lying rat for them to get out of here! Ricky: NO!!! (Rick is thrown out of the office room; he pounds his fist to the floor and sees a Danny Phantom picture on the wall, ripping it out) You made him suspicious! All I wanted was to get even... now... (Rips the picture in half) nothing would make me happier than to break you in half! (Later on the news, three Fenton kids watch) Chief J: Because my... (Shudders) son, Ricky Johnson, lied for a personal grudge against the ghost child; we must regretfully withdraw our reward for Danny Phantom... until we know for sure. Danny: Well, thats one problem out of my hair. (Gets up and heads for the door) Jazz: Danny, I know where youre going. Danny: Then dont wait up. Jazz:(Grabs Dannys arm) Dont even think about it. Or at least think it through. Danny:(A dark tentacle comes out of Dannys sleeve and pushes Jazz to the ground) I have no time to think it... (Goes ghost) Only to do it! (Flies off, going intangible through the walls) (Danielle helps Jazz up) Danielle: What's happened to him?! Jazz:(Tears up) I don't know... (Danny is shown flying around looking for just who he runs into) Danny: Vlad... Vlad: Hello Daniel. I like the new look. (Observes the new Danny) Hate the skin, the loud mouth is finally gone and the pointy ears are my look... but not bad. Danny: Save your breath... while it lasts. (Danny rushes at Vlad with full force) You should have stayed in space! (Voice starts getting deeper from here; Danny tackles him into a building) Come out and play, old man! (Vlad disappears) Vlad: Oh Daniel! (Danny looks up and sees four Vlads charging one huge ball of power together) Youre not the only one to change in a way! (The blast is launched straight at Danny, sending the Ghost boy pummeling to the ground) Ouch! (Vlad laughs hysterically as we see an unconscious new Danny on the ground) End of Chapter 3</u>
(Vlad laughs hysterically) Vlad: Goodbye... old friend. (Leaves, but Danny gets up, his voice deep and his glow darkened) Danny: Im not done yet, old friend! (Danny follows, but a certain boy who hates Danny is in his beaten down old car nearby) Ricky: Danny Phantom... I hate that freak brat! Hes ruined my money, my job, my love life, my school life... (Sneezes) my health... (Car breaks down) MY CAR! (As he gets out, he sees Danny fly in the air) Him! (Sees where hes headed) Im following you ghost kid, and when I find out what youre up to... Ill use it against you. Payback time! (On the other side of town, near Fentonworks, four people close Danny meet up) Jazz: Good you came. Sam: Remind me again why were here. Tucker: Sam, something is wrong with Danny... you know it and you of all people should notice. Danielle: Hes your boyfriend. (Sam looks down on her right hand and sees the ring she obtained from Danny in Phantom Planet) Sam: Lets find him. Jazz: Maybe we can find a clue at Vlads manor. (At Vlads manor, Vlad is in his lab underground) Vlad: Now that that little pest is gone, I have other... fatter fish to fry! (Laughs) (The very pest reaches Vlads front door) Danny: Alright Masters... knock, knock! (Smashes the door down) Plasmius! (Ghost sense goes off, the sense being a dark blue smoke coming out of his nostrils) Company... (Looks up and sees the vultures, which stop midair when they get a good look at the intruder) Vulture #1: Oh boy! This is not worth bird seed! (Fly off in fear) Danny: They maybe are vultures but theyre total chickens! (In the basement lab, Danny knocks down the door and reaches Vlad) Hey, Uncle Vlad! I thought Id say hi... and let you know its payback! For me and my dad! Vlad: Daniel! I had a feeling you would survive. I must admit... you are a more unique individual. Danny: If this is another Youre more like me than youve known speech... shut up. Vlad: And that... is my cue! (Fires an ecto-ray at Danny, pushing him into a wall; Danny walks out seemingly un-phased) Danny: You fool! Pain is my friend now... let me introduce you to it! (Fires a darker shade of green energy out his hands at Vlad; knocking him down) Very painful or sort of painful; Im hoping it was very. Vlad:(Getting up) If you think that I thought was painful... youre in for a real surprise, Daniel! I am going to defeat you, once and for all! (Fires a blast that Danny easily dodges and stands on the ceiling) Danny: And Im going to tear you limb from limb! Vlad:(Sarcastically) Oh, Im so scared! (Outside, Dani Phantom lands out from of the destroyed door and Jazzs red car reaches with Sam and Tucker in the backseats) Dani: Danny was here! Jazz: How can you tell? Dani: Vlad would never leave the door open... (Sees the ruined door, funny moment) Or tear it off the hinges and leave it inside the house... (At the bottom of the hill is another funny moment, a running Ricky Johnson, out of breath as he stops, heading to where he saw Danny Phantom go) Ricky: Like it would kill our former mayor to spend millions on an escalator to his house... (Within the lab, Vlad is on the floor and is weakened) Vlad:(Reverts to human form) Please... have mercy... Danny: Sorry, ran out of mercy hours ago! Sam: Danny! (Danny looks back and sees his friends behind) Danny:(Fiercely) What are you all doing here? Jazz: Taking you home. Danny: Im busy, come when I finish this fool off. Tucker: Dude, hes defenseless. Danny: So was my dad... Dani: Youve changed Danny. You dont joke, you dont have fun. Youre all busy, aggressive, being a jerk. You dont even smile anymore! Danny: Dont like this years model, too bad. Boohoo for you. (Tucker gets in front of Danny, blocking him from Vlad) Tucker: Listen to yourself! (Danny grabs Tucker and lifts him by the shirt) Dude, Im your best friend! Danny: If you were my friend... youd leave me to this! (Drops Tucker, scaring him back; Vlad is shown running away) Now look! You let him get away! Dani: Danny, quit it! (Tugs his arm) Danny: Go change your diapers! (Pulls his arm out of her hands; Sam gets in front) Sam: See, youre even like this to us! The very people youre closest with! (Points at him with her right hand, where her ring is) Dont you even look at yourself? Danny: You know Sam, I never figured out why I liked you that much. Youre so bossy, so annoying, so individual... (Makes his hand go through hers and grabs the rings, smashing it within his fist in front of her face, shocking everyone) Now stay out of my way, the next thing I break is Vlads bones! (Danny exits the room after Vlad on foot; Sam gets on her knees while the others circle her, sharing her sadness; Sam picks up the rings broken remain with tears coming from her eyes) (Within the main room of Vlads lab is Danny, entering) Danny: Come on, lets get this over with. (Vlad pulls a lever) I said COME ON!! (A large green rock falls on Danny) Vlad: Ecto-ranium! From the asteroid; no ghost can handle that! Time for a good-bye party, Im inviting all your enemies! (The rock begins to move upwards; Vlads joy ends abruptly) No! Impossible!!! Danny:(More deep voiced than ever) Impossible, Unc-y Vlad? Let me say it in English: I... AM... INVINCIBLE!!! (Crushes the rock to dust) Vlad: Maybe... (Presses a button that releases several cannons that aim at Danny) Maybe not... (Grins; Sam and the rest come in; Danny crosses his arms on his chest and circles into a dark green orb) Oh no... (Runs into an elevator hidden behind a picture of himself with his cat; the rest all run out) (Outside is Ricky panting on the ground, he hears a loud explosion) Ricky: I must be near! (Gets up, but falls down) Note to self: After raking in the dough from ruining that kid, fix car and join a gym. (Back in the lab, Dannys attack has destroyed all the machinery around him) Danny: Get back here, Masters! (Pulls open the elevator doors and sees Vlad has already reached the top floor) MASTERS! (Vlad is in the top floor with an ecto-bazooka ready; Danny goes up the elevator shaft) YOU CANT GET AWAY FROM ME! ILL CHASE YOU DOWN TILL THE END OF TIME!!! (Reaches the top floor; phases through the door) Surprise! (Vlad fires the bazooka) Vlad: Ha! (Smoke clears, nothing happened to Danny) No! (Fires blast after blast, each having no effect, till Danny comes up and crush the tip of the weapon with his hand and throws it away) Vlad: I still have more than enough energy to deal with you! (Goes ghost, but Danny punches him, changing him back to human form) or not. (Danny grabs him by the shirt and lifts him) Danny: Now undo that Amnesia Plague, or Ill erase more than just your memories! Vlad: Fool, I cant! Danny: Cant or wont? Vlad: Both, but mostly cant; thanks to you. Danny: What?! Vlad: Youve destroyed my lab and all the materials needed to make the plague or its cure. Danny: So get more. Vlad: I cant, the world I found them is rare with the minerals. Besides, even I found them, theyd be useless now, in Earth years, only every 10 years are they useful in making the chemicals that caused the Amnesia Plague... much less the cure for it! This would have been easier if you came here and snuck them out or even asked. Even I was surprised youd react this way! Sorry, 10 years... Danny: 10 years?! (Lifts Vlad with both arms, carrying Vlad by his back and walks to the window) You dont even have 10 minutes... and without those powers... 10 seconds. (As he prepares to let go, he hears a crying) What is that ridiculous sound? (He recognizes the sound; a shot of Sam crying with the broken ring is shown to us) Sam? (He sees a mirror to his right and lets Vlad go on the floor, as he walks up, his reflection changes into Dark Danny; in Dannys mind, he hears his own screaming Ill never turn into you! Ill never turn into you! Ill never turn into you!) Dark Danny: Too late, you already have... (Snickers and changes back to Dannys real reflection) (In Dannys mind, he sees himself flying in front of the building looking at is reflection, which is his natural ghost look; the reflection looks away in sadness and disappointment, disappearing and replaced by Dark Danny; Danny can realize at this moment what hes done, he gets on his knees and covers his face as though he were crying) Danny: What have I become? (He looks over to Vlad and sees a part of Danny suit stretched out and grabbed Vlad by the neck, tossing him out of the window; Danny quickly flies out and grabs him, leaving him on the ground, Vlad is knocked out by the sudden fear) What have I done?! Whats this costume doing to me?! (He flies up and lands on the rooftop) The Observants were right; the Dark-Shadow is taking control! (Pulls his own face) I gotta get it off! (Struggles in failure; sunrise begins) Its too late, it wont come off! (The sun hits Danny, causing him to scream, a scream that can be heard downstairs by certain people he knows) Sam: Danny! (Only Sam rushes to the roof) (Ricky Johnson reaches the manor) Danny:(Steaming body) The shade is in pain, I can feel it screaming, but why?! (Sees the sun and remembers Lancers lesson) Solar radiation! Sunlight makes you burn... I should have guessed that before! (He stands while leaning on the edge; Sam walks in from the stairway and sees the shade oozing off Danny Fenton in his pajamas, unfortunately, so can Ricky, from below) Ricky: Danny Fenton? Sam: And I thought I hated the morning sun! Danny:(When the process is over, he looks towards a shadow in the shape of his Ultimate Enemy) Why didnt I know your weakness? Did you block it out when I started to resist? (The shade glares at Sam, knocking her down the stairway she came, hurting her arm when she reaches floor, Danny can hear her scream in pain, Danny glares at the Dark-Shadow) Get away from me! I thought you were the answer to all my prayers, but I was wrong. I dont want anything to do with you! (The shade lunges towards him, but Danny steps away; the shade sees Ricky and smiles; a drop of its face falls off and lands on Rickys head) Ricky: Ick... (The goop disappears) Hey, whered the goop go? Im out of here! (Runs away) (After it screams one last time, the shade dissolves into dust from the sunlight; Danny falls to the ground, too weak to get up) (Later in the afternoon; Danny sits on his bed; Sam comes in and sits next to him, she wears a cast around her broken left arm) Sam: You dads meeting your cousin. He totally believes her when she says that shes really your third cousin once removed and is letting her stay. (Danny doesnt even look at her) Danny? Danny: How can you stand me? Sam: You werent yourself. Danny: I was! I was fully aware of what I did and had enjoyed it until I noticed what was really happening to me. I treated you like dirt, I showed you all nothing but my ugly side, I was obsessed with getting revenge; you can forgive me... but I cant. Sam: Danny... Danny: Im sorry Sam, Im not giving up my powers, but until it is safe... I cant be more than one of your friends. Sam: W-What? Danny... you cant... Danny: Sam... Please leave me alone... (He shows her face, he had red eyes full of tears) (Sam agrees to do and gets up, exiting the room; she gives Danny one last look, normally shed be full of anger and unhappiness, but for once, she should sadness; she feels more bad for Danny than for herself; this ends with Danny looking out the window and closes his eyes, tears coming out of them) (At Ricky Johnson new home, and ugly brown house near the bay, later during the day at sunset) Ricky: Im going out for a walk Uncle. Uncle:(Remains off screen) Fine, boy. Just be home for dinner. Ricky: Right... (Walks down the street) Fenton... this is his entire fault! I swear... (Raises his fist in anger)... Ill humiliate him! Torture him! Ruin him! Make him wish he were dead and grant it in a way hed regret making that wish!!! (He notices something dark on his hand) The goop? (He walks into an alley and wipes the dark spot with his coat sleeve)<?i> Whats it doing on my hand? (Nothing happens, no goop on his sleeve, still where it is)</i> Wait, it IS my hand! (Sunset ends, the dark-shadow then spreads all over his arm, then it appears all over his other hand) What the- (Screams as something happens to him; his eyes go pure green and he falls on all fours, screaming in pain; pan to the left to see his shadow is changing shape, a muscular, hairless, huge fanged shape; before this ends, we see darkness, with a green pair of eyes open up out of nowhere, a huge snarling mouth full of fangs as the face screams in a monstrous voice and a huge tongue sticking out, eating the camera) The End... or is it?
Being in school is no treat for a child by any means. Especially to a twelve year old little boy who has just left home and dreams about his family every night. Junior sat by the window hypnotized by his own reflection. He had skin, a full head of hair, and another eye. The girls in his class said his eyes were pretty and that since they were two different colors that it must mean something special. They had no idea.
Junior slipped the cell phone out of his pocket slyly to check the vibration. It was a text from Uncle Nergal telling him to walk home today because he couldn’t pick him up. It was a nice day out, after all. When the final bell rang Junior picked up his backpack and started on his way. He still had mied feelings about this whole situation, but he had made friends and was happy to be living with his uncle.
Endsville wasn’t a very big town, so walking through the suburbs with no noise wasn’t very extraordinary. Despite that, Junior started feeling uneasy. The wind blew some of the autumn leaves past him as he marched quickly to get to his uncle’s house. Something just seemed strange.
When he first saw her, he thought she was Sadako. All he could see was the back of a young girl. She had long dark hair and a white one piece. She turned around in curiousity to the approaching footsteps. WOW! Look at those eyes! And what beautiful red eyes they were. She seemed startled at his presence, she must have been in very deep thought before he interrupted.
He was quickly approaching her. What should he do? They had already made eye contact. Should he just give a nod? How about a simple, “Good afternoon.”? Good thing she acted first. “I’m lost. Do you know where Wallabee Way is?” She was very forward. That plus her red eyes gave him the creeps. She could very well have been the Queen of the Underworld. “Sure…I’m headin that way if you wanna walk with me.” They went two blocks without saying a word. It was very awkard. He wanted to ask her for her name and who she was going to see or anything to find out a little bit about her. She was very pretty and he didn’t want to mess up another chance with a girl. The flashback of Flonne and the cafeteria loomed in his head from the previous week.
“I’m Junior. I guess I’m introducing myself a few minutes too late, huh?” He tried to hide the fear in his voice. Talking with girls wasn’t his strong suit.
“Nice to meet you. I just moved here, so I kind of got lost on my way home from school. I’m kinda embarrissed about it, actually.”
“I just moved here a few weeks ago. The houses and roads all look exactly the same, I got lost a few times too. Think about it this way, if you didn’t get lost, you wouldn’t be walkin home with me.” He thought it would be a good way of getting her to smile. And it did.
They reached her porch and Junior became totally clueless as to what he should do. He had to ask her out! She was just so pretty, he had to try. “Wanna go to a movie Friday?” He just kind of shouted it. It was embarrissing. He sounded so stupid. Way to go idiot!
She was caught off guard by the question. She smiled at him and nodded her head in agreement. With that note, she opened the door and entered without a word leaving Junior on the porch scratching his head.
Time? Movie? Phone number? Your name would have been nice.
All he thought about that night was her. Her eyes. Her hair. Her voice. Her. Her. Her. It was all about Her.
Well, this is it. Junior has met Her. I guess it's love at first sight. The big question is: Why is she disguised as a human?
Her's bio at snafu made it appear as though she were as evil as Him. I don't much like that idea, so I'm takin it a different way.
Notes: The address that Her is looking for is a "Finding Nemo" reference.
About Junior and Sadako(the girl from the Ring), they are boyfriend and girlfriend, but please keep in mind of how old they are. At this age a boy will fall for pretty girls with ease despite any other girls he might already be crushing on. Plus, he just moved away from home. He needs a good friend to get attached to.
The Haunting Hour Title Screen Caption: "Let The Haunting Begin Again!"
(Vlads new mansion, in the basement lab, Vlad Plasmius stands at a console pressing buttons, a virtual Maddie approaches him) Maddie: Substance contains DNA of both Daniel and an unknown human, Sweetie Cup. Vlad: Have we tried containing the creature? Maddie: Yes, but it is too strong. Somehow only sunlight harms it... and we are having thunderstorms this week. Vlad: Hmm... I heard of this creature. I assumed it was an urban legend. If Im right, it needs a host to survive. Why hasnt it bonded with anyone? Maddie: Perhaps it wishes to bond with its previous host, Honey Nut. Vlad: I have an idea. (Pushes a button on his console; two metal doors open near him and something of a formless shape and see through eyes crawls out; the Dark-Shadow) (Elmerton streets; someone is scurrying a trash can finding a half-eaten apple, he throws it away; its Ricky Johnson, with dirt on his left cheek and a dirty coat) Ricky: Richard Johnson Jr., reduced to a street rat! (Finds a newspaper with a picture of Danny Phantom on it) I know who you are. One day... Ill make you suffer for this! (Rips the newspaper in half) (A police siren is heard behind him, he turns around to find a GIW police car; stepping out is his father, Chief of the GIW) Chief J: Ricky... bout time. For a second there, I thought Id have to pay someone to find your butt. No $2,000 reward for anyone, thats good. Ricky:(Stepping back) Stay away, pops. Chief: How many times do I have to tell you? That Haunting thing was a stress delusion caused by hating the ghost boy too much. Ricky: Why shouldnt I hate him? He humiliated me! I just wanted payback, before the town had no idea I existed; now they hate me because of him! (This moment, a shadow from behind starts moving in closer...) Chief: Thats it! (Grabs Rickys right arm) Youre coming whether either of us wants it or not! (As Ricky tries to break free, the shadow lunges out of the ground and onto Ricky; slowly moving all over his body; in one instant, his arm becomes longer, black and more muscular; the Chief looks back to see his son now a monster; Haunting grabs his father by the neck and puts him head first into the trash can; he then walks over to the car and lifts it by the side, turning it upside down) Haunting:(Laughing) The Haunting has returned! I knew it was no delusion! (Walks over the right brick wall and starts climbing it Spidey-style) Looks out Danny Boy... (Scene shifts upward to show Hauntings face as he climbs up) Cause Haunting has returned to the land of the living... and making sure you leave it for good! (As he crawls, the black between his eyes covers the screen) End of Opener</u></b>
(Its supposed to be morning, but a thunderstorm has covered the sun, bringing Haunting protection from sunlight; Ricky walks down the street of central Amity Park, now clean and with clean looking clothes) Ricky: If Im right, she spends most time around here. (He walks into an alleyway and in that moment, a purple ghost net comes out of nowhere, trapping Ricky; from within the net we see his face smiling evilly) Bingo... (His eyes glow green and his teeth show vampire fangs) Time to show her who deserves the honor of Danny's destroyer. (Out of nowhere now comes Valerie Gray in her ghost hunting outfit) Valerie:(Putting her fist on her waist) Ricky Johnson. The 18 year-old who lied about Danny Phantom for revenge. Soon as I turn you in to your dad, Ill collect the reward and go after Phantom myself, because I have what it takes, more than you do. (She pulls the net off and to her surprise and fear, she sees Haunting, roaring in her face with his tongue lashing out) Whoa! (Haunting grabs her by the neck and tosses her further down the alleyway; he sticks to the right wall with his feet and right hand) Haunting:(About Danny) I want him dead more, Gray! Thats why I came to tell you. (Valerie gets up) Its not that youre not good enough... its that youre too good to live with hate. (He starts wall crawling towards her) Oh yeah, I know all about you. You lost your popularity, I had none; you lost everything, I had nothing but lost more. My reasons are better than yours. Bottom line: I wanna kill the Phantom; you wanna kill the Phantom. Unlike you, Id rip apart every man; woman, child, ghost etc. just to get rid of him. Stay away or Ill have to literally eliminate the competition. (Valerie refuses to listen and aims her right arm blaster at him) Or, youre dimwit of a genius daddy would have to pay for you like always. (Valerie gasps in fear) Understand? Valerie:(Glares for a moment, then with sadness and anger lowers her arm) Yes... Haunting: Good girl... (Haunting flies away, leaving a shamed Valerie; new scene of Haunting crouching on the edge of a building dissolves in, looking down at the city) Time to find that brat and replace "Danny" in the D of DP with Dead! Vlad:(Off screen) Viciously seeking revenge? I think Ive found a kindred spirit. (Haunting looks back and sees Vlad Plasmius standing behind him) Haunting, right? Allow me to introduce myself. Haunting: No need, I know you through Dannys memories. You found my shade. Vlad: And let it go back to you, you owe me. (Vlads smile is replaced with slight fear when Haunting grabs his face) Haunting: I owe you nothing! Unlike Danny Phantom, Haunting shows no honor or respect to anyone! (Lets go and starts walking away from Vlad) Vlad: Oh, surely as enemies of Daniel, we can work out an agreement. Haunting:(Looking over his shoulder) Enemies? You, Skulker, Technus, Ember and all of those pitiful excuses of enemies respect Danny enough to hide his secret. (Turns around, points at Vlad) I on the other hand would blow it to the Earth if it means blowing his head off! Vlad: Surely, if you help me, Ill help you remove the shadow of its weaknesses... (Close up of his smiling face) like the sun. Haunting: Weaknesses? (Ponders for a moment) Im listening... (Vlad smiles) (Fentonworks backyard; three stuffed Box Ghost dummies on sticks are in a row; someone fires an ice blast at the dummy in the far left; we see that person with blue smoke coming out of his hands, Danny Phantom) Danny:(To an unseen person to his left) Your turn. (Pan to the right, Dani Phantom extends her right arm and uses some force... until a small cold gust comes out of her hand) Dani: Ah, man! (Tucker hops over the fence, while Sam just opens the wooden door) Tucker: Dont worry, it took Danny months to learn that power, I bet you need more practice. Dani:(Glaring; to Danny) Can I? Danny:(Smiling) Sure. (Dani flies to behind Tucker and fires her little cold gust on his back, causing him to shiver uncontrollably; Dani giggles) Sam:(To Danny) Shouldnt we be going now? We have a field trip! Danny: In a minute, while my cousin tortures Tucker with the cold. (Meanwhile, within a room resembling an office; Vlad sits at the desk while Ricky sits in front in a chair) Ricky: What do you want, old man? Vlad: Simple... two things. (Maddie, Vlads cat, comes in, hopping on Vlads lap, and then she is petted by her owner) One: Dont ever call me old man! Second... (Turns the screen on his table to Ricky, showing a huge UFO like object) The Solaris engine; it holds the power of the sun and generates its own sunlight for power. With these thunderstorms, you can walk out in broad daylight... well, if there was light. Ricky: Fine... Ill grab the engine. (Gets up and starts to walk to the door, but stops and looks over his shoulder) You better keep your end of the bargain, old man. (Transforms into Haunting and phases through the floor) Vlad: Oh I hate him already. Ill be glad to give him his... cure. (Laughs) (Axion Labs with several school buses and crowds of kids outside it; inside the presentation room are rows of chairs with students sitting in them, Danny, Sam and Tucker sit together as Damon Gray walks onto the stage) Damon: Thank you all for coming to learn of our fabulous new invention. I give you... (Points to the left; curtains pull away to reveal the device Vlad has shown Ricky in the earlier scene) The Solaris Engine! (Silence from students, cricket chirping) It collects energy from the sun and creates its own sunlight. (Silence; Valerie Gray in the front row quietly applauds; alarms go off) Was it something I said? (The front wall behind the chairs is smashed from the top; a muscular figure stands in the dusty cloud; when our three heroes look up, Danny instantly recognizes this being) Danny: No... (Haunting fully appears out of the smoke) It cant be! Damon: Everyone, single file out of the doors. (The students get up and make a break for it in large groups) or... all at once. (During the crowds that are now outside, Danny stops Sam and Tucker to tell them something) Danny: You guys go... Ill stop Haunting. Sam: By yourself?! Tucker:(Pulls out his cell phone) I can call Danielle! Danny: No... (Looks over his right shoulder and his eyes glow green) This is personal. (Back inside, Haunting jumps onto the ground; the camera views Haunting by the face close up and he stands on all fours, his head tilted a bit to his right, smiling with his fanged mouth) Haunting: Give me the engine... and Ill leave enough of you to identify. Damon:(To Valerie, who remained behind) Valerie, call the Guys in White. Valerie: What about you, daddy? Damon: I cant let that... Thing get the engine! (Pulls out a ghost gun) (Valerie makes a break for it, but not before one last glance of Haunting, crawling on all fours at the engine, before heading into a fire escape door) (Damon aims the gun at Haunting, yet a blast of ice from that creature freezes the gun and hand in a chunk of ice, Haunting grabs him by the neck and lifts him up) Haunting: Does a normal human like you think he can stop me? Danny:(Off screen) Maybe he cant, muscle head! (Haunting looks behind his right should to see Danny Phantom flying at him; exactly to feet away from Haunting, Dannys ghost tail returns to being his legs as he kicks Haunting away, thus making release Damon, who runs away) But I can! Ive done it before... (Makes a ghost charged fist) And so help me Ill do it again! Haunting:(Tapping his left trigger finger on the side of his head for every syllable he says next while crouching) I remember! (He stands up now making fists with his hands) Thats all I could think about frozen in the dark loneliness of Earth and outer space! (Haunting fires a ghost ray from his left fist that Danny dodges, then Danny flies in directly at Haunting; Haunting then does something unknown and spits out a green slime that traps Danny and sticks him to the wall) Danny:(Struggling to get free) Eww... What is this; an evil loogie? Wait, he couldnt do these before? Has he gotten stronger than last time? Haunting:(Pointing at Danny) No more sunlight to help you! This time, fate will not favor you like last time! This time... (Walks slowly towards Danny with his claws ready to slash, fear comes to Dannys face) Haunting will not leave until he finishes the job... (Close up of Haunting as he smiles, the close up goes all the way to blackness of his forehead) End of Chapter 1
(Danny is still trapped in the ectoplasmic snot as he tries to break out with Haunting now standing a foot away) Haunting: Danny boy... (He bends down to speak to Danny) Your demise will make me... so happy. (Smiles with his tongue sticking out, hissing like a snake) (Suddenly a blast pushes Haunting away from Danny; Danny looks to his right to see who fired that blast, its Valerie Gray in her hunting suit) Valerie: Happy hours over, big mouth! Danny:(Finally breaking free and standing up) Uh... thanks? Haunting: I told you not to get in my way! Only my revenge is meant to happen, but now Danny will be sharing his fate with you! (Fires a ghost ray) Valerie:(Dodging) I dont care who wants revenge on who! Its my job to protect Amity Park from monsters like you... and lately, Ive realized not all monsters are just ghosts. Haunting: No job is worth facing me! Ill rip that suit apart with you in it! (Suddenly, from above, Danny Phantom fires a ghost ray at Haunting; Haunting screeches in anger, though not from pain, but anger that Danny is still alive; pan to the wall behind Haunting, we see a robotic bug of Vlads that is watching; new scene of Vlad Masters watching this from his computer) Vlad: I knew this would happen... (Pushes a button on his desk and speaks into it) Skulker, stop skulking and tell that fool to finish the job. (Back to the battle, Haunting throws Valerie into the chairs while he turns around, grabbing Danny by the neck and lifts him) Danny: Valerie! He reacts to... sunlight! Valerie:(Getting up) I got just the thing! (Pushes a button on her wrist that activates a black cylindrical object on her right shoulder) Solar lantern, normally used to brighten places, but I amplify it... (The light fires like a small laser, hitting Haunting in the back, causing him to scream and let go off Danny; Haunting turns around steps away in pain; suddenly an arrow hits the lantern, destroying it; Danny looks up to see the marksman who fired, Skulker) Skulker:(To Haunting) You have your orders, so do them. Haunting: I dont take orders from anyone, not even Plasmius! Danny:(Looks away in thought) Vlad... (Suddenly a metal arm grabs his shoulder and lifts him) Skulker: I will always have time for this... (Suddenly a huge black hand pulls Skulker by the head and into his face) Haunting: Your time ended before it ever started! You lay a finger on him before I exterminate him... Ill make sure that finger is all thats left of you! (Skulker shows some fear, especially when Haunting throws him into the chairs, Haunting grabs the engine, but not before looking over his shoulder to speak to Danny) This isnt over... (Lifts it and flies away, going intangible; Skulker soon follows) Danny: Count on it. Valerie:(Aiming her arm blaster at Danny) Alright Phantom, how did Ricky Johnson- Danny:(Interrupting her and walking away) Not in the mood. (Valerie just watches in confusion as he leaves) (Vlads office; Haunting puts down the engine) Haunting: My side of the deal is paid... now my reward! Vlad: Ah yes... It seems your obsession with wasting Daniel clouds your control over yourself... (Smiles) So Ill do it for you. (Pushes a button on his desk that launches something from the wall that wraps around Haunting by the neck) Haunting:(Grabbing the leash) What is this?! Vlad: A shock collar... I was saving it for Daniel, but youll do. It releases 30,000 megavolts, enough to kill a human. But this Dark-Shadow of yours will protect... though it still hurts. You serve me now. Go take a break. Haunting: Fine idea, Ill break you; since Haunting obeys no one!(Vlad pulls out a remote with a red button that causes the collar to activate, shocking Haunting) Okay, I accept you as my master! (The shocking ends; Haunting reverts back to Ricky and walks to the door) You better save that remote Vlad, because when you drop your guard... just know I added your name to my revenge list. (Walks out the door) Vlad:(Stands erect) You can quit skulking now... (Skulker walks out from nowhere, wearing an arm cast and a bandage around his head) Skulker: That monster almost did worst to me! Vlad: Im still keeping an eye on him. (Smiles) Hes a powerful pawn and ally... (Shows his seriousness when he stops smiling) But his obsession with revenge on Danny Phantom is stronger and more evil than any enemy that boy has ever encountered. (Speaking of Danny; Casper High, the three walk down the halls, Danny looking very scared) Sam: Danny, will you relax? Danny: How can I? Haunting is back and still wants revenge. (Thunderstorm lightning hits the school causing black out inside; scream are heard; we see the eyes of Tucker and Sam, Sams eyes look happy) Sam: Ah, my favorite part of a storm. (The light comes back and all students have run out, except Sam and Tucker; Danny is nowhere to be seen) Ah man. Tucker: Danny? (The locker behind them opens; Danny crawls out and gets up, Tucker laughs) Danny, are you suddenly afraid of the dark? Danny: No! (Obviously the seriousness shows on Dannys face as Tucker stops smiling) Its just that every time I enter a dark place... I keep thinking hes going to be there, ready to rip my head off or something. (Danny walks away; Sam and Tucker both look worried) Sam: Haunting's here... (Tucker screams quickly and jumps into the locker, slamming it closed; Sam smiles) Couldn't help it... (Hours later in Fentonworks; Jack is in the kitchen fixing up something) Jack:(To Danielle in the living room, who watches television) How spicy do you want your noodles?! Danielle:(Sitting on the sofa) Very! (Sees something in the news the makes her gasp) Shelly Makamoto:(On the news) And this was the scene earlier at Axion, as (A shot of Danny battling Haunting is shown) Danny Phantom battled with a bizarre creature that resembled Danny Phantom as he was... (Shot of the Dark-Shadow Danny is shown) months ago, whether is a connection or not is unknown. The creature calls itself Haunting. Danielle: What the heck? (Doorbell rings) Ill get it! (She opens the door and freezes in fear when she sees who it is) Ricky: Fenton here? Danielle: NO... No hes not! (They are both distracted at them moment by the news, showing Axion Labs, where several cars, parents and students are) Shelly: And we are live with Axion as the parents complaining how a ghost attack occurred and harmed their children. (The Fenton RV drives into the scene, coming out is Maddie with Danny; back to the two, Ricky smiles evilly) Ricky: Its amazing how informative the news is nowadays. (Leaves) Danielle: Uh oh... (Slams the door close and runs up the stairs, we see a Going ghost flash, Jack walks in with a bowl of pasta) Jack: I made it spicy! (Notices Danielle is gone) Danielle? (Short pause) Ah well... (Sits on the couch) More for me! (Pulls out the fork and eats some pasta, then creams with fire coming out of his mouth for a second, then sighs in relief and eats another mouthful of pasta) (Ricky is then seen walking down the street; from his left we see him by the side walking as he is then blocked out of our view by a passing trailer truck, then as it passes, Haunting stands where Ricky just was, then flies upwards) (Axion labs; outside, dissolve to inside; several parents and their children crowd to Damon Gray, who stands in the middle with his daughter, Valerie; Maddie walks up pushing Danny by his shoulders) Maddie: Explain, Mr. Gray, how a ghost managed to get past your ghost proof walls and get away with the Solaris Engine, arguably the most powerful source of energy on Earth? Damon: I assure you, Mrs. Fenton, we had no idea this would happen. Chief of GIW:(Off Screen) I would have assured more! (The entire crowd turns around to see Chief Johnson of the GIW walking in through the double doors and walk straight up to Damon) If your daughter had called us instead of some incompetent hunter who makes Jack Fenton look like a master... (Valerie growls) That creature would be a goner now! Licking its wounds in the Ghost Zone. Damon: Im sorry... (In a bit of anger) Both my daughter and the hunter have little tolerance for greedy bottom feeders! Chief:Bottom?! How dare you refer to me as that! Valerie: Look, sir. That creature wasnt as much of ghost as it looked. It was... Chief:(To Valerie, in a rude tone) Im sorry, but was I talking to you?! Besides, I know exactly who that thing was. I must say, Im not surprised my son would be pathetic enough to try and be a ghost. Damon: That thing was your son?! Maddie:(Giggles) Impossible... humans cant have ghost powers. Chief:(Still rude) Says the woman married to one of the biggest idiots on Earth. Maddie: How dare you- Chief: Call me daring. (To the other parents in the room) I doubt any of you could handle a ghost like that any better than Jack can and he's a fool. You are all worthless except for us to be paid to help you! (Everyone in the room now glares at him) Mrs. Manson: Excuse me... (Walking up behind him is Mrs. Manson) How dare you speak to us in this manner! Mr. Foley:(Also behind him) Yeah, just because your head off a government team- Chief: Its not that- It makes me feel good. I was a bit of a bully in my day. Dash:(Jumping out of the crowd) Yeah! Chief: I would even prank the idiot quarterbacks. Dash:(Angrily) Boo! Chief:(Walking back up to Valerie) Back to the topic... I dont care if it is my son; he was a trouble maker anyway. (Speaking of Ricky, or Haunting; he is flying above several buildings now, heading up to Axion Labs.) Haunting: Bingo! (Back inside; Chief still continues) Chief J: While some idiots would blame this on Danny Phantom, others, like myself, could see how is really to blame. I dont care if hes my kid, he- (He is interrupted when something breaks down from the roof, Haunting, landing right in front of Chief) Haunting: Why if it isnt my old man! (He grabs him when Chief makes a break for it by the leg and lifts him) The perfect practice dummy! (Turns his head to see Danny walking backwards away from him) Ah and heres the grand prize! (Turns around and spits another blast of his greenish ectoplasmic goop that traps Danny to the wall) Boy, do I feel like a winner! (Lifts his father and is ready to throw him across the room; but stops to speak to the crowd, who is gasping) This is the part where you all run away... (Listening to him, everyone screams and makes a break for it out the doors and even the windows) (Haunting is ready to strike his father, until a red light from a Fenton Bazooka held by Maddie Fenton appears on his chest) Maddie: Drop him. (Pulls out the lipstick laser from her side pouch and throws it Valerie; to Valerie) Use it to free Danny. (To Haunting) I dont know what this is about, but it ends here. (Valerie runs towards Danny and uses the small blaster on the sides of the slime to free him) Valerie: For a not so great hunter, your mom makes cool gadgets. Danny:(Taking slight offense) Ahem... Valerie: Get some water when you get out. (Danny glares) Maddie: Ricky, please drop him. I can tell you two need some father-son counseling, but you need to drop him, or I will fire. Chief:(Scared out of his mind) Yeah, Rick... D-Do-Dont hurt me... Y-Y-You always meant the world to me! F-FF-Forget that rejecting the $2,000 reward for finding you! (Haunting lets go, reverting back into Ricky, the chief runs; while passing Maddie) Stay away from him, Fenton! (Runs out) (While this happens, Valerie finally cuts through and frees Danny as he jumps out of his slimy trap) Valerie: Run, Danny. Your mom can handle this... with a little help. Danny: Okay, Ill run... (Runs out through the back door behind them) but not before Haunting and I have a little rematch... (Eyes glow green) (Back inside) Maddie: I dont know what happened to you, or how you can do this, but you cant get away with it. Ricky: Destiny has chosen me to claim revenge on Danny Phantom, because all of his foes are too pathetic to do the job. They are too busy with other idiot plans and a useless conscience. Valerie: You think hurting innocent lives make you special?! Ricky: Innocent or guilty; human or ghost. I dont care who it is, all will suffer if I dont claim revenge on- (He looks up in surprise to see just the ghost he was looking for, hovering above them) DANNY PHANTOM!!! (Snarling in rage, Ricky transforms into Haunting and flies at Danny at full speed, with his mouth open and his tongue lashing out) (Outside Axion Labs is a parking lot, off-screen crash; the lot is now totaled when out the sky is Danny Phantom crashing into a blue Mazda-like card as Haunting lands in front a few feet away; Haunting grabs a nearby red Camaro-like car by the front and lifts it, swinging it back by his right, screaming in anger and throws it at Danny) (Danny flies up fast before any injuries occur from the car and fires a ghost ray at Haunting; Haunting fires his own ray, while growling, with his left fist and the two blasts collide, unfortunately, Haunting fired a blast that pushes back Dannys attack while still hitting its prime target, Danny; Danny falls onto the ground) Haunting:(Walks up to Danny and lifts his left leg) Bye-bye! (Laughs evilly as the camera shows from below his foot as it comes smashing down on it) End of Chapter 2
Princess had just returned from her spying on the Rowdyruff Boys as she skipped through the corridors. The kaijins all turned their heads to view this spectacle; though few of them knew Princess, seeing her in this state was quite disturbing. Her was disgusted at such an amount of joy and affection to the point of staying at least twenty feet behind for fear of being polluted by that sickening taste. Her had never been around love, but she feared it with her entire being. If Princess crush on Brick got any worse being around her would leave the demon sick and in need of bed rest. She recalled a time when she had been near a girl hugging her mother, this event left her with a fever and cough for two days.
Eventually, Princess gathered her wits and maintained a decent composure as she entered Doctor Xs lab. It was a large room with a dome ceiling and an array of scientific gadgets everywhere; no doubt Dexter would revere the Doctor if he had not groomed Mandark to kill him. Princess handed the camcorder to Zim and told him very sternly to not lose it or he would regret it later. She then gave him the task of making a copy of all the footage and making sure she got it.
Zim does not serve you! He said at the top of his lungs. Zim serves no one!
Whatever you wanna tell yourself, greenie. Just give me the tape when its done. She then exited the lab, proud of telling off that good-for-nothing irken.
Zim, Doctor X summoned. Dont be too offended by her. Im sure shes just eager to make photos from some of the footage. Shes definitely taken a liking to Brick hasnt she? Doctor X was now reviewing Princess tape, and it contained nearly no traces of Butch at all. She had kept the camera poised on Brick at all times.
Human emotions are disgusting. Zim made a motion as if he were going to throw up.
Dont underestimate a girls love, it could lead her to fight wars and rule worlds; Ive seen it before. And I believe our little Princess affections may be the key to our own success in the future.
You mean getting those kids to join us? We have no need of them! We are already so powerful, we should just take over this planet now and be done with it!
Well, Id like to do that. As youve seen, weve taken care of most of earths defenders. The Justice League, the X-men, and even the Power Rangers have fallen to us. And Queen Vexus is on her way to see our progress, even as we speak. Zim quivered for a moment. Was she coming here? He thought of escaping at that moment and running as far away from the planet as possible. I am afraid that before conquering this world, we must take care of one last issue, the Powerpuff Girls.
Why are they so important? They are little girls, with dresses and dolls! They are no match for us! We could easily crush them! Zim was full of passion, he would fight them himself if they were truly the last thing standing between the Cluster and world domination.
Not all things are as they appear. Those girls are not simply children, or super heroes, or anything close. Youll understand when you see it for yourself. Zim was hanging onto the Doctors every word. What was it that he knew? With the right grooming, those girls could be strong enough to destroy Queen Vexus herself.
Thats it! Thats what youre doing! So ingenius! So underhanded! So risky! I love it! Doctor X gave no indication that he heard Zims rants.
Now, Zim, I have a task for you. You wont understand it now, but when the time comes youll see why Im saying this. Can you follow an order that you dont understand, Zim? It may be the most important order I have handed out thus far. Now he had Zim. If anyone should do such an important job, it must be the irken warrior himself.
You can count on me, sir!
Princess strolled past Mojos body, hanging in suspended animation, waiting for Doctor X to finish the experiments that would give him new life as a superior being. What a waste on such a stupid fool. Princess knew she deserved that kind of power a whole lot more than Mojo ever would. As the automatic doors opened up to the training room, Princess was welcomed by something smashing into her.
When she opened her eyes she saw that Samanthas body was on top of her and Bell was some short distance away with Gir dancing around her. It was apparent that Bell and Samantha had been sparring. When they got to their feet Samantha uttered what might have been an apology (or swear words) and engaged Bell again.
Princess watched from a chair in the corner as the two girls fought intensely. She didnt know their whole story, but she knew enough of it to know they despised each other. Samantha had been Doctor Xs daughter before she was handed to the kaijins to experiment on. She was transformed from a defenseless, little girl into a cybernetic, battle warrior. Meanwhile, Bell was adopted by the Doctor and when Samantha returned she had a sister that her father loved more than his own flesh and blood. Why Bell hated Samantha, that was left to speculation.
And yet, they were training together. And not just fighting, but they would talk and give tips and correct mistakes the other had made. How strange, Princess thought. They hated each other, but they were helping each other get stronger and more skilled. An idea struck her. She needed to get stronger, like Bell and Samantha. Brick would never want a weak girlfriend if there were girls out there like this, ones that could match him and give him a challenge. Yes, he had to want a girlfriend like that.
The next few days were filled with bruises and aching muscles. Obviously, she had no real powers beyond that of a normal girl, but she was determined to learn how to fight, and do it well. Samantha encouraged her, saying the only real reason she couldnt win was because Samanthas body was robotic. But if it had been a fair fight, Princess would win, no doubt. This cheered her up on one of the harder days, but was still not enough to restore hope.
The one thing in the back of her mind at all times was Brick and how she couldnt even dream about getting him until she was strong and powerful, like the Powerpuff Girl she always wanted to be. She watched him train so vigorously, focusing on what he wanted to do and then achieving it. He was a master of his mind and body, never giving in to thoughts of despair or losing sight of the days goals. He couldnt be bothered by distractions or petty desires. Thats why he was leader of the Rowdyruff Boys.
Princess, Doctor X called her in. Youve been doing a great job lately and Id like to congratulate you on your recent improvements.
Thanks, I guess. She was embarrassed. He was praising her despite her knowing how miserable her training was really going. In the past two weeks, she had learned that without all her weapons and jet packs that she couldnt do much of anything.
It seems you still have a long ways to go, doesnt it? She nodded. What did he call her in for? To remind her of her short comings? I think you need a little help, wouldnt you agree? He reached for a beaker on the table near him. It was filled with a black substance that Princess was slow to recognize.
Chemical X? She knew where he was going, but to say it out loud might somehow jinx it. She was determined to say nothing until he said it first.
I think this is the only thing youre missing. Im going to give it to you, but I dont care if you use it or not. As far as Im concerned you are doing well and if you wish to speed up that process, then go ahead. But remember, there is a certain pride in obtaining what you have worked for versus what is handed to you. With that he sent her on her way with the beaker of Chemical X in hand.
This was it! It would make as powerful as Samantha and Bell. She wouldnt need those gadgets and gizmos anymore. The Powerpuff Girls would finally see how great she was and beg her to join them, but she would decline and tell them how she was going to take over the world and how they wouldnt be able to stop the Cluster. Brick! When he saw what she could do, he would fall for her instantly. Thank you, Doctor X. Thank you.
I hope that everyone learned a bit from this chapter and I hope you're all wondering about Zim's mission. He's got an important task ahead of him. Plus, Bell and Samantha are cooperating? Wierd, huh? And finally, Princess and her Chemical X. The Doc gave it to her, but doesn't seem like he wants her to use it. He's a real complex guy isn't he?
Well, please comment and tell me what you think and if you have any suggestions to my writing style or story etc. give them to me.
