SlugTerra Oneshot: Eli's Nightmare A young man walked into a dark room with little light. He was tall with reddish-skin and raven-black hair. His blue eyes wandered around the room, looking for anyone who could tell him where he was.
"Hello?" he asked, "Is there anyone there? Hello?"
Eli Shane, protector of Slug Terra, guardian of her secrets, leader of the Shane Gang, and enemy of the nefarious Dr. Blakk, was alone in the room.
"Burpy?" he called to his faithful Infernus slug, only to be responded with absolute silence.
Eli looked around the room several times to find any sign of someone being close by. He saw a shadow run past him from the corner of his eye and he quickly turned to inspect what wisped past him.
"Eli," a feminine voice called from behind him
Eli turned around towards the voice to find his friend, Trixie Sting, standing in front of him in a ner
I was falling through the air, screaming for someone or something to come and rescue me. The wind wisped past my ears and my long red hair blocked my vision as I fell for what seemed like stories off of a building. I didn't know what was going on or where I wound up. All I knew was that a moment ago, my father had entered the lab to study the slug he had found, leaving me in the back of a truck he drove to the swamp where he found the specimen. Another moment later, a massive earthquake had taken place and I slipped through a crack falling down. The truck fell with me, but crashed onto a ledge while I continued to fall.
I fell for what seemed like hours until I finally felt something catch me. It felt soft and sticky from behind me. I quickly looked around me to find that I landed in a giant spider web. I experienced another panic attack and shouted for rescue. I was not in the mood to be a spider's meal.
I hardly noticed the tiny purple-and-white slugs that started to gather all around me. Again, I was too busy screaming my head off to take note that I was just rescued by a bunch of slugs and their net.
The slugs thought it would be funny to try and get my attention and bounce up and down the net to make it move a little and shake me up. What they didn't count on was that a boulder had slipped from the hole above our heads and slammed into the net with such force that I bounced off the net and back into the air.
Before I knew it, I was flying through the air, bouncing against the heads of giant mushrooms as tall as skyscrapers, having no idea where I was going or where I would end up. I was screaming the whole way through, praying someone would hear me. What I didn't know was that I was about to meet a very interesting young man no older than I was. He was just slug-slinging with one of his boss's lackeys when I literally jumped into the fray.
I never would've thought my life was about to change forever. I was just busy beating the crap out of the lackeys with my partner, Loki, my Illusiolett slug.
I slung Loki right toward the soldier and, together, he and I won another match. My mentor/employer, Dr. Thaddius Blakk had sent us onto practice in order to get stronger and beat Eli Shane, the son of the infamous Will Shane who took my father from me. I swore vengeance for what Will Shane did to my father and I wasn't going to stop until I got my revenge on Eli. So far, he's gotten in the way of most of Dr. Blakk's plans and, as his apprentice, it was my job to stop Eli from ruining anymore.
Loki had just gotten back to me when I noticed another lackey had taken place where the other one was.
"Aren't you guys getting tired of me and Loki beating you and all your ghouls?" I asked.
"Dr. Blakk wants us to help you with practice as much as we can, Twist," he said, "You need all the help you can get."
"So much for help! You guys can't even defend yourselves against us! Isn't that right, Loki!"
Loki nodded his head and chirped in agreement to my comment.
"See! Even Loki knows you guys don't stand a chance against us."
"That is not the point, Twist," I turned to find a scarred man wearing Black approach, "The Shane boy is still better at slinging than you are. You need the practice."
"Dr. Blakk," I addressed him, "What do you think is going to happen? (laughs) An angel is going to come and stop me from kicking his butt."
At that moment, I heard screaming and turned to have a flying girl crash into me broad side.
Loki was knocked off of my shoulder and hissed at the foolish girl that landed right on top of me.
My head was throbbing from impact and I didn't notice the position we were in until I finally opened my eyes to see our lips were so close I could practically taste her breath against my lips. I felt my face get warm from how close she was and thought my heart skipped a beat.
Before I could enjoy the moment, the girl quickly backed away with a blush on her face next to a scared look. I had never seen a girl like her before. She was a red-head with long, straight hair and fair facial features and the strangest fashions I've ever seen surrounding her slim figure. It was pretty messy, but it was still clear. She was wearing a torso of bright yellow with a picture of a flower on her chest and a dark-blue jacket. The legs of her blue jeans was covered with a strange pair of yellow boots and I noticed she was wearing a silver bracelet around her left wrist. I was about to say something when she screamed at Loki.
I was busy flying when I crashed into an attractive young man with tan skin, bright-blond hair and beautiful teal eyes. My head hurt from the impact and I hardly noticed how close he and I was to one another. I quickly backed away and felt my face get warm. I saw that the boy was blushing too from our close encounter.
He was wearing the strangest form of clothing I had ever seen. He was wearing an orange vest and a white-and-brown shirt with black armor of some sort strapped onto the right of him, a pair of black pants with matching boots and finger gloves. With a belt filled with empty capsules, he looked as if he was prepared for a battle.
I was about to address him when I saw the most horrid thing; it looked like a slug of some kind but in the form of a black-and-red abomination. I screamed at the sight of the little monster with big fangs and long horns. It looked more like a demon than a slug and it sure didn't look like it liked me.
I had no idea ANYONE could scream so loud and at such a high pitch like this girl could. My ears were splitting at her screams. She might as well have been a banshee than a person.
A lackey tried to calm her, but apparently she was stronger than she looked. One minute, the lackey was going to comfort her, the next he was lying on his back moaning in pain.
That's when I noticed she had the lackey's loaded blaster pointed right at me.
Loki went to protect me as I put my hands up in defense.
She didn't seem to know what she was doing, but I didn't think she could care less. That's when she finally said something. What a fair voice she had.
"WHO ARE YOU?!!!" she demanded, "WHAT IS THAT THING?!!! AND...Where on Earth am I?"
Aiming this strange weapon at the boy, I cautiously looked around to find that I was not in ANY place I was familiar with. All around me there were giant blades of grass and giant mushrooms with boulders all around. Oh, my gosh, I thought to myself, Did I shrink or something? I knew I couldn't have shrunken. That was only in movies. Besides that, it looked like I was underground according to the giant cavern walls and the ceiling above me. Was this a dream?
The boy tried to move, but I quickly pointed the weapon back at him. He saw me and he slowly got back to his feet as his "pet demon" continued to growl and snarl at me viciously. What a fine voice he had when he spoke.
"Okay, My name is Twist," the boy said calmly, "This thing is my partner, Loki. You actually have one of his friends inside that blaster."
I looked into the barrel of the weapon and saw that the boy was right. I yelped as I dropped the weapon with the demon inside. The demon managed to get out and growl at me same as his friend.
Having found myself now unarmed, I quickly got into a defense stance I learned from my Kung-Fu classes. My parents thought in case I ever got in trouble, I should learn to defend myself. I never thought I would actually have to use those lessons on a cute blond boy. I shook out the thought of him being cute and refocused on defending myself.
"Stay back," I warned him, "I know 10 types of Kung-Fu and I AM NOT afraid to use all of them on you."
"Easy, easy," he put up his hands to defend himself as his "partner" began to growl louder at me, "I'm not going to hurt you."
"Than answer me this, Twist: WHERE, ON-or in-GOD'S BLESSED EARTH, AM I?"
"OKAY, okay. Not really sure what an "Earth" is or who your "God" is, but your in a place called Slug Terra. It's a giant cavern where we live."
I looked around at this "Slug Terra" until a much older man approached me from behind the boy, Twist. He looked scarred and terrifying with his pale skin and black attire. I put my defenses the moment he walked past where Twist was.
"No need to fear me, my dear," the scary gentleman said, "I am Dr. Thaddius Blakk. Twist here is my apprentice. I apologize if he startled or offended you. Tell me, what is your name?"
I hesitated, but I did answer him, "Rose. My name is Rose Greenwood."
"Well, Rose, I assure you you are in safe hands now. Tell me, if your not from Slug Terra, than where did you come from?"
I looked around and pointed towards my entrance up on the ceiling, "I fell through there."
"You fell from a hole?" Twist asked me.
"There was an earthquake and I fell through that hole. I'm from a land high above ground. THAT'S the Earth I'm talking about."
I didn't know what was so funny, but I thought I heard some of the men and even Twist snickering at my statement. I looked angrily at Twist and he quickly shut himself up.
"I'm sorry," he said, "It's just that the place you're talking about sounds a lot like the story of the "Burning World." And that's just a fairytale."
"A fairytale?" I asked, "A FAIRYTALE?!! Than you must think I'M a fairytale."
"No, no. Nothing like that! It's just that the place you're talking about doesn't exist."
"I'LL SHOW YOU WHAT DOESN'T EXIST!!!"
"Knock it off, both of you!" Dr. Blakk demanded than cleared his throat to address me, "My dear, the place you speak of is one of legend. There is no world above Slug Terra..."
"But there IS," I said desperately, "That's where I'm from and where my father..." My father. How could have I forgotten about him. I panicked and ran in the direction the hole was on the ceiling, "I have to get back to my father. He's probably worried about me."
"Rose, wait!" Twist shouted from behind me as I ran, but I didn't hear him.
I ran towards the hole, unaware of my new surroundings. I didn't look at where I was going or what was around me. I just focused on the hole I fell from. I ran as fast as I could, almost running into other people and beings riding on mechanical animals. Some I could recognize as present day animals. Others looked more of the primitive species of mammoths and saber-toothed tigers. There were three on mechanical hyenas that I didn't pay attention to and ran past as the boy who must've been their leader told me to watch it. I didn't care about ANYTHING the people had to say. I just wanted to go home.
Thank goodness the Shane gang wasn't around to see Rose run through a whole slug hunting party. They might've stopped her and with her speaking nonsense about the Burning World, they would probably deem her insane and take her away. I just met the girl myself, so I didn't care where she would end up, but if she said the first people she saw was me and Dr. Blakk, The Shane gang might question her as to where she found us; causing a lot more trouble than needed.
She ran fast for a girl, so I had to go back and use my Mecha Beast to catch her. A lot of people were shouting at me for having "my girlfriend" running around like that. Some even presumed I had broken her heart somehow. Billy of the Hooligang was shouting about almost running her over because she was too stupid to watch where she was going, but that she was cute. I admit she is cute, but she's more of a pain than a pleasure.
Finally, I could see her running towards the hole she said she came from. But what she didn't realize was that she was about to run into another one that was on the ground. If she fell through, Dr. Blakk would never forgive me. I sped up my Mecha Beast to try and catch her before she got any closer to that hole. I managed to grab her by her jacket just in the nick of time and haul her up before she fell under.
"What are you doing?" she demanded to know.
"Trying to save your life," I said and she looked down to notice the hole she nearly fell into. She didn't look to happy that I stopped her from reaching an impossible destination. So much for gratitude.
"But, I need to get home," she said.
"Your home doesn't exist!" someone had to break it down to her, "I don't know why you believe you're from the Burning World, but that world is just a fairytale."
"Oh, the Burning World is anything but a fairytale, my boy," I was too preoccupied with setting Rose straight to realize that some creepy dude had snuck up on us and heard everything. He was super skinny and looked sickly, with bags under his eyes and greying skin. "Pardon the interruption. My name is Gar Revell. I couldn't help but overhear your conversation. Tell me, where are you from, my dear?"
"Up there," Rose said pointing up to the hole.
"Rose!" I silently scolded.
Mr. Revell looked up at the hole and suddenly gasped, surprising the both of us.
"Pardon me, my dear," he said while gittering like crazy, "But are you saying you're from the Burning World?"
"Uh, yes," Rose said hesitantly.
At this, the creepy dude, whom I'm going to call Gargamel from here on, practically wanted to hop up-and-down in his skin.
"I DON'T BELIEVE MY LUCK!" he said excitedly as Dr. Blakk was approaching us with his men, "You, my dear, are the key to ALL my hard work. Hah! You just might prove me RIGHT about the existence of the Burning World..."
"And what is this all about?" Dr. Blakk demanded of Gargamel, "Who are you?"
"Forgive me, sir," Gargamel said, "I am Professor Gar Revell. I have studied the legend of the Burning World for YEARS, and now I believe this fine young woman may be the answer to all of my prayers."
"Do you seriously believe that Rose is from the Burning World?" Dr. Blakk asked.
"Oh, if she is, than I can finally prove-once and for all-that there is a world above Slug Terra, and put a Mr. Eli Shane in his place."
The last thing Gargamel was what got everyone's attention. He had a streak against Eli too?
"What does the legend of the Burning World have to do with the Shane boy?" Dr. Blakk asked intrigued. Did he have an idea?
"I-I found a journal from Jimmo, the Shane before Will Shane," Gargamel answered him, "I was positive it spoke of the Burning World and of a way to get there, but Eli Shane stole it and destroyed it before I had the chance to read it."
"Why would a Shane destroy such knowledge?"
"I don't know, Dr. Blakk. But I do have ONE clue. The journal was written in Shane code. The word 'Shane' itself is an insignia. Whatever it was that was written in that journal must've been very important for a Shane to destroy it."
"Hmmm! Than it seems that little Eli Shane is keeping a BIG secret from us..."
"Excuse me, Dr. Blakk?" a lackey called and we all looked to see people glancing our way.
"Of course," Dr. Blakk said before turning back to Gargamel, "We will discuss this back at my headquarters and we will see to helping Rose return home to her father."
"Thank you, Dr. Blakk," Rose said gratefully. What? I don't get a "Thanks" for saving her life?
Sure enough, we took the train back to Dr. Blakk's headquarters in the Deep Caverns and we made a room for Rose. Dr. Blakk insured me the task of keeping an eye on her until we could get more information from Gargamel. Oh joy.

The world outside of the Bounty was nice, but had a freezing temperature to it. All of you were stuck inside watching movies, marathons of 'The Big Brick Theory' and "Doctor Brick". After awhile, it seemed boring to you, especially since you'd been sitting there since 6:00 am till 3:00 in the afternoon. You sighed and leaned back onto your pillow.
"Guys, lets do something different," You groaned, your voice filled of boredom. Lloyd turns around to face you with a confused look upon his features.
"(Y/N), wanna watch the new My Little Pony movie with me? It'll be awesome!" Kai busts out laughing at Lloyd's response.
"Dude, we're not five!"
"So?" Zane puts his two cents in, "its quite educational." Kai rolls his eyes and mutters a small 'whatever, I still think its stupid'.
"GUYS." You yell out. "I mean something different than movies and TV shows and arguing! Lets actually do something productive!"
"Video games?" You all turn to the direction of Jay, he looks around at all of you and then shrugs. "we haven't been using any of the gaming consoles lately."
"Jay, I think she/he means go outside." Cole says.
"Well, we have the Wii, XBOX and PlayStation 3 and 4, those have movement filled games." Jay answered.
You perked up at his words, your (e/c) eyes gleaming with excitement as you jumped up and raced to the cabinet that held all the games, quickly pulling the doors off and scrambling to look for that one game that you've been dying to play ever since you joined the Ninja's crew. Your hand finally skimmed onto it and you dragged it out as fast as you could. Racing back out of the room and in front of your friends, you raised it up, letting everyone see your marvelous idea.
"Everyone, lets have a dance off!"
