Frozen Part 7

The captain on the time freeze ship was not in a good mood.

Zero X. Diamond
He tried shooting a few more of his subordinates, but it just wasn't the same.

 It had started when the scientists had told him that there were people moving on the planet. It had grown worse throughout the events of the day, and it was now peaking.

Spoony Spoonicus
Why are they even still here doing all this crap?  Their mission was to test the weapon and see if it works.  You found out what you need to find out, now go back home and report!

The scientist really did not want to report this news to him. But he sighed and walked up to him.

"Captain...I have bad news.

Zero X. Diamond
"Try as we might, we've found no indication that this story's going to get any better."


We just got a report from the surface team. Smidgen was defeated..." His voice faltered under the captains glare.

Zero X. Diamond
I can only imagine this meaning his voice cracked like a pimply-faced teenager.


 Before the captain could say anything though, the tactical officer interrupted him:

Clobberpuppy
JINX!  Now you can't talk till somebody says your name!


"Sir! We've getting a hyperspace signal! Someone just jumped in system!"

Zero X. Diamond
"You know what you doing," said Captain CATS.  "Take off every zig."


The captain groaned as he went over to the Tac. console.

Zero X. Diamond
He ordered the scientist to take the Tic. console and the officer to man the Toe. console.


Could this day get any worse?

Spoony Spoonicus
"Sir, we're out of coffee."
"FUCK!"

Adure watched as the lines of hyperspace receded. It had been a long time since he had been back to earth.

Zero X. Diamond
Yet another human being from the 90s who is piloting an interstellar spacecraft.


 For the past several years he'd been of with his crew on the space vessel Arconas on a patrol against smugglers.

Zero X. Diamond
Oh yeah, I hear aliens smuggle a lot of shit into the solar system.

Spoony Spoonicus
Velcro, microwave ovens, liposuction...


It had been a long time since he had seen Rosaline... I wonder if she still loves me... He thought, but he was cut off.

Zero X. Diamond
 It was the story, reminding him there was really no need to dump more meaningless exposition into it.


"Sir! We've got a temporal anomaly surrounding the planet. The entire planet seems to be frozen in time!

Zero X. Diamond
Get out of town and take a bus!


 The source of this disturbance seems to be coming from that ship there." Said Hir'Chin, his scan officer.

Spoony Spoonicus
Cameo appearance from the Daedra god of the hunt.


"Get me a line to that ship." He said as he examined the ship. It seemed fairly mauled. An image appeared on screen. It was a man in a captains uniform.

"I am the captain of the science vessel Nomad.

Spoony Spoonicus
"I'm scanning for cloaked Protoss units, now go away."


 I am proceeding with a weapons test in this system. Do not intefere."

Adure called the captain a less than polite name.

Zero X. Diamond
Wartlick?  Dumpkis?  Richard Nixon?


"Thats my homeworld you just froze!" He shouted. Undo it now!"

"Not you too! We can't, the rebels..."

"I don't care about your problems!" Shouted Adure. "Either you unfreeze that planet, or we blow you to space dust!"

Zero X. Diamond
Ah yes, the sign of any great captain: flagrantly emotional impulse reactions.


The captain responded by cutting off the link and powering up guns.

"All right people, we've got a planet to save!" He shouted. "Shields up, we're going in hot!" He shouted and then the ship was moving, jetting towards the other vessel with amazing speed. Why is it I can never get a normal vacation?Adure wondered right before his crew fired the first shots.

Zero X. Diamond
Uh, sorry Mr. Lucas, but HAN fired first.

Obnoxious Fanboy
THOUGHTCRIME!  THOUGHTCRIME!  Burn him at the stake for questioning the almighty Lucas!


After pressing a button on the wall, the kitchen shelf in the Polestar Preschool lowered down into the ground, and Sandra now saw back into the kitchern,

Zero X. Diamond
 A combination kitchen and cistern.  Great for cooking and collecting and storing rain water!


still noting the frozen door that was open to the kitched

Zero X. Diamond
So which is it, a kitchern or a kitched?


 from the front room. She, James, Terrance, Lance and Johnson walked up and back into the kitchen,

Zero X. Diamond
This house has a lot of similarly named rooms in it.

Spoony Spoonicus
Or just a lot of kitsch.


 and then James gasped at the sight of his frozen wife Penelope, at the stove flipping pancakes when hit by the time field.

Zero X. Diamond
Those poor, poor pancakes.


 "Penelope... hey... Sandra, could you... uh... well..." Sandra was thinking the same thing now that she knew she could reverse the effects with Dispel, and promptly cast Dispel on her frozen mother.

Zero X. Diamond
"Well, that's great and all, but I was gonna ask you to just unfreeze her dress for me and then leave the room for about ten minutes."


The spinning magic coins floated down onto Penelope and melted on her, and the Pink aura of Stop around her vanished.

Spoony Spoonicus
Those chocolate coins you always see around Halloween had some purpose after all!


 Penelope was suddenly free, but felt a wave of wear and tear,

Spoony Spoonicus
That doesn't make a lick of sense.


and fell backwards, luckily to be caught by James in time. Sandra noted that like her mother, Johnson had also fallen backwards when unfrozen. Perhaps the time field had some side effects to it she had overlooked. "Er.... James... dear... why are you hold me this way?"

Zero X. Diamond
 She sounds like a mail order bride from Thailand.


Penelope asked her husband, who blushed and helped her back to her feet. "Dear, you were... frozen into place in time." James explain to her, "Look at your pancakes over the stove." He pointed to her pancakes she had been flipping.

Zero X. Diamond
 Why didn't he ask her to unfreeze the pancakes?  The pancakes deserve better than this, damn it!


Penelope just looked at them with a shocked, yet surprisingly calm look in her eyes.... "Um... I see." she stammered, "but... why was I?"

Sandra decided to make herself known again. She wondered if her mother would recognize her first sight,

Zero X. Diamond
Instead, she pulls James aside and demands to know how long he's been cheating on her with this scene girl.


 "I believe something has trapped the Earth in a time field, which is freezing a majority of the planet in place. Even inanimate objects seem affected."

Zero X. Diamond
Except for when they're not.


Another question struck Sandra in the head

Spoony Spoonicus
Is this like the Phoenix Wright movie where they throw holographic images and speech bubbles at each other?

as Penelope looked at Sandra with an even more shocked expression. Penelope actually recognized her as she had been the one who held Sandra first in her life and had given her that name. The purple eyes confirmed her thought. "Your... your okay!!"

Zero X. Diamond
What about her okay?


 Penelope, unlike James, didn't hide her happiness, and hugged her 2nd daughter in a bear hug.

Zero X. Diamond
Unfortunately for her, Sandra accidentally flexed her muscles slightly and broke both of her mother's arms.


Sandra didn't mind it much, however Johnson, Terrance and Lance raised their eyebrows and looked at their best friend. "James, you care to explain this to us?" James gulped, but Sandra defended him to an extent, "Hey, if you saw it from his view, you'd understand why he never mentioned of my existance!"

Spoony Spoonicus
Why was this even a plot point if you were just going to explain it anyway two scenes later?


The three friends looked at her with widening eyes, "And just to confirm it, your friend has a second daughter he didn't want to burden your minds about!" "James, you have two daughters?!"

Zero X. Diamond
I have a feeling these guys were barely even aware he had a first daughter.


Lance asked with a large dose of shock, "I thought only Paula was your only daughter." "I'll explain it to you myself when this is over and passed!"

Zero X. Diamond
Oh God, please don't!


 Sandra replied in her father's place.

Sandra suddenly felt about hard thought whack her mentally.

Zero X. Diamond
DOES NOT COMPUTE


"Where is Paula?!" she chirped. "Um..." James was about to respond, when Sandra heard a sound from in the sewers. Who could that be? Nebiroth isn't big enough to walk through the sewers, or is he?

Spoony Spoonicus
Shouldn't that be "small enough"?


 Suddenly, she felt the presense of someone else using magic: searching runes. "Someone using search magic? It must be another unfrozen person!" she ran back into the small hallway behind the shelf, spotting an equally shocked Glenn, who had followed her in regard for her safety by using a magical rune to follow her footsteps.

Zero X. Diamond
Oh, so THAT'S what Glenn was doing!  When I got to the last part with him, the words kinda stopped holding any meaning to me so I guess I missed that!!


When he saw Sandra he realized, This must be the girl, and that looks like Polestars' kitchen behind her!...

Try about three and a half less stars and you'll get the average reader's rating for this story.


Nebiroth was soon off on his journey to find Sandra, with Bob sitting on one of this shoulders, and Zac floating behind him. The journey Nebiroth was embarking on, he had expected it would be a long way to find his once-nemesis, however, he had little idea he would have a easy time. Nebiroth was now trudging up the road towards the Preschool and it's intersection, thinking The Pink one could be anywhere around here. She could've even found a way around me while I was fighting Smidgen. I have no doubt she knows I'm here. I don't know why I do, but I just do.

Zero X. Diamond
Call it "author's intuition."


By this time, he had reached the preschool, and actually took notice of the broken down door this time. He hadn't even paid it any attention because of him being hungry. That very thought made his stomach growl, literally. The face on his stomach growled in an annoying high pitch. Nebiroth whined silently. Now his other face was going to blab until it was shut up by more food. The face on his stomach had a life of it's own when he was hungry.

Zero X. Diamond
What sort of fucked up environment did his species evolve in for this to be considered a necessary trait for survival?


 He didn't know why, but the same thing had applied to Austarouto as well. "Hungry! Hungry! Hungry!" the small face on his stomach in fact began to chirp. "Argh! Stupid stomach! Quiet!" Nebiroth growled at his lower face. "Hungry! Want FOOD!!!"

Zero X. Diamond
I can't not read this in Sockbaby's voice.


 the lower face whined in a high pitch, making Bob raise his eyebrows. Now I've seen everything about him!

Zero X. Diamond
Bob's already seen his skeleton, his organs, his butt, and his junk.


 Bob thought to himself. Zac merely tried to ignore it.

Back in the Polestar house, some of the people had caught sound of Nebiroth's hunger problems, and were curious as to see what was going on outside, leaving Sandra to talk with Glenn in the middle of the sewer's hallway for a moment.

Zero X. Diamond
You know, this whole thing has been ignoring one major issue: an open passageway to a sewer, filled with piss, shit, and other vile things, is hidden just behind a shelf in their kitchen.  I wonder if the Polestar kids get hungry when they're in a filthy bathroom now?
Spoony Spoonicus
"Yeah, there's some crazy shit going on outside when we know the world is frozen and evil is afoot, but fuggit, let's check it out!"


 "Hey, are you alright?" Glenn asked her, panting just a little. "I'm fine right now, unless Nebiroth finds me. But yes, I'm okay. Who are you?" Sandra asked him. "My name is Glenn. I followed you because I saw magic foot prints you and him left behind, and trailed you here. I was trying to find out about his wereabouts, but I felt your safety was more important at the moment." Sandra was a little wide-eyed. "You SAW him?!" "Yep. He was last helping his fight a creature called Smidgen. I edged out of the battle because Nebiroth had appeared, and I never knew anything about his origin, and I was kinda useless during the battle anyways, so I went off on my own, and then found out about you.

Zero X. Diamond
 He just keeps talking in one long incredibly unbroken sentence moving from topic to topic so that no-one has a chance to interrupt; it's really quite hypnotic.

I followed you all the way to the cliffs on Onett, the sewers, and to here. I didn't even know the sewers had secrets like this in them!"

Zero X. Diamond
What, you were never a five year old?  All kids know about the secret gangster tunnels, stupid!


 Glenn answered. "Nebiroth... helped you?" "SANDRA!!!" she suddenly heard her parents shriek, and then she got that very sick feeling... Nebiroth had found them. "CRAP!! He's found us!" she said, bolting to the source of the sound. "Wait, I think he's still on our..." she was out of Glenn's rage, "...side." He decided to keep watching her for now.

Zero X. Diamond
After becoming so intimately familiar with her footprints, he was hoping she'd take off her shoes and let him see her bare feet.


****

Outside, Nebiroth held his throbbing ears, half-deafened by the screams of James and Penelope in addition to his stomach's face's cries of hunger. "Ow! No scream loud! Hurt Nebiroth's ears!"

Mayor Mike Haggar
What a crappy monster.


 he then suddenly realized exact WHAT they had screamed, "You... know pink-haired brat?" James, Penelope, Terrance, Lance and Johnson only gaped at him, also taking notice of Zac behind him, and Bob still on his shoulder. It was then Sandra, closely followed by Glenn stepping out of the door, and both slayer of Sardius, and former head minion of Sardius once again stared at each other face to face. At first it looked like a stare-down contest between them, but they were brought out of it by a shrill sound, "FOOD!!!!" Nebiroth's high-pitched sounding second face again had cut into their stare-down. "Geeze, Nebi! Turn the volume down on that thing!" she growled at him, still thinking he wanted to rip her limb for limb, not know of his reform.

Zero X. Diamond
Kemosabe not know of his reform either.


Zac and Bob could only muse at the two accquaintaces and smirk a little...

[DrAndonuts gave me permission to bring Zac with him ahead of time. If anyone else wanted to follow Nebiroth, they still can, but I wanted to post at least once on this IF today, so it wouldn't drop down on the list. Sorry to those like GMOE, Speedy, Ffish, etc if I jumped the gun.]

"Whoever isn't going with Nebiroth, Bob, or my brother, I suggest you come with me to my complex."

Zero X. Diamond
"I'm already having my computer prepare the special Flavor-Aid."


 Brett already started to head northeast into the dense forest seperating the Dusty Dunes Desert and Threed. Brett heard footsteps following him.

-------------------------------------------------
Later

Zac, still smirking at the scene this big guy was making, started to think. Where are the Chosen Four?

Zero X. Diamond
 Quietly enjoying their time to themselves before they're inevitably forced into this fiasco.


 They should be unaffected by the field?]

Zero X. Diamond
That's not really a question?


 Also, he took notice of the intense staring contest between Nebiroth and the "pink-haired brat."

"Nebiroth, we need to go and find the Chosen Four. They could help us find a way to break the stasis field around the planet."

Spoony Spoonicus
Well somebody better do something other than fight the same shitty boss monster over and over again.  I'm getting massively bored here.

Zero X. Diamond
Or they could just become secondary characters within their own universe while all the wondrous Mary Sues and self-inserts run around saving the day.  That could also happen.

 Stopping for a moment, Zac began to concentrate. Searching for their still energies was going to be tough. An intense debate started over what should be done about the situation.

"QUIET!" Zac shouted. "Please... I'm trying to see if I can find Ness, Paula, Jeff, and Poo. I need silence." Everyone looked at Zac, not expecting him to shout. Again, Zac started to concentrate. Faintly, he started to pick up a signal. Due to its strength, he couldn't locate specifically where they were. "Somewhere... northwest, but fairly close..."

"That's right!" Penelope chimed in. "I remember Paula say

Zero X. Diamond
This is not helping my earlier image of Penelope.

 that she and her friends were going to Burglin Park to celebrate one year of freedom from Giygas."

Zero X. Diamond
 Here's the best part of this: later on, fanboy and I consolidated our IF and fanfic stuff into a shared "Frozenverse" as it were, which proved pretty difficult considering Rise of the Technoids supposedly happened at the same exact time.  Our solution was, if I recall correctly, to say "fuck it" and magically declare that Frozen took place later.  Because ignoring a major element of the setting is a sign of a good writer!!

"What are we waiting for?!" Sandra shouted, already taking off for the park. Hang on sis, I'm on my way... Zac was right behind her, almost matching her speed.

Spoony Spoonicus
They can both run at over 600 miles an hour?

Bob kicked back and relaxed. He held up a hand and began to ramble nonchalantly.

"Hey there lady. I think the big lug here isn't out to get you. He seems pretty nice to... me?"

Bob opened his eyes and looked at Sandra. The strange feeling he'd been having seemed to change a bit.

Zero X. Diamond
 Oh no.


 His body started tingling.

Zero X. Diamond
No...


He really was beginning to doubt his health.

Zero X. Diamond
NO!


Sandra looked up at him.

"Do you realize who this is? This is NEBIROTH! NEB IR OTH!

Clobberpuppy
The one winged angel!  The guy who blew up the whole solar system!  The only villain in his franchise with any actual character or motive to speak of that isn't just "be a cartoonishly evil jackass"!

He's a vicious monster from the Phantom Zone!"

"Me no mean no more. Me only hungry. Need food for tummy."

Bob sat there, staring down at Sandra. He didn't know what to do. He started to clutch his head.

Agh! What is this strange feeling that envelops me?

Zero X. Diamond
I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT IT IS AND YOU KNOCK IT OFF RIGHT NOW, YOUNG MAN!


Why is it that I must be at a loss to explain it?

It was as if he were burning up. He felt his heart rate skyrocketing. His blood was pumping faster than ever.

Zero X. Diamond
It was going exactly where you think it was going.


Zac suddenly approached Bob with a strange look on his face.

"Hey, you okay over here?"

Zero X. Diamond
"I noticed you getting a boner so I thought I'd ask."


Bob grabbed Zac by the collar.

"TELL ME WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME!!"

Zero X. Diamond
How about he tells you what's NOT wrong with you?  It'll save time.


"Wrong?" questioned Zac. "You sure don't look like there's anything wrong with you."

Zero X. Diamond
Nothing that a sensual massage wouldn't fix.


"I feel so warm and tingly. And my heart feels like it's going to burst.

Zero X. Diamond
I hope for our sake that it does.


It all started when I saw her."

Bob pointed at Sandra. Zac couldn't help but giggle. It broke out, and he began outwardly laughing.

Spoony Spoonicus
If this story turns into them explaining the birds and the bees to the deranged murderer I'm going to shoot someone.


"Bob, you dog, you!" he joked.

"Are you," questioned Bob angrily, "trying to pick a fight by calling me a dog?"

Zero X. Diamond
This line reads a lot better if you imagine Bob with a stoic look on his face and with his lips not matching the words.

Zac's face suddenly went blank.

"Uh, Bob? You ever heard of a little thing called 'love?'"

"... L... ove? What is this... love?"

Zero X. Diamond
Baby don't hurt me.  Don't hurt me.  No more.


Zac explained the whole thing as best as he could to Bob.

Zero X. Diamond
He used hand puppets and made all the dirty gestures and everything.


Bob's face suddenly turned bright red and his muscles constricted. He fell off of Nebiroth's shoulder and several feet into the pavement.

Zero X. Diamond
About twelve feet, so his freshly healed leg should probably be broken again.


Sandra looked down at the lovestruck maniac.

"Wow, that looked like it hurt. You need any help getting up?"

Bob stood right up and dusted himself off, coughing up a few clots of blood and some dust.

"No, no... I'll... be... fine..."

He started turning red. It was all he could do. This love thing sure did confuse him.

Zero X. Diamond
It confuses me, too.  Just not in the same way as you.

Spoony Spoonicus
Your definition of love is roughly on par with that of Chris-chan.


"Oh, heh, I forgot to ask... What's... uh... your name?"

"My name is Sandra, and you are?"

"Happy Bob... the uh... the Homicidal... Maniac."

Zero X. Diamond
Oh Bob, you lady-killer, you!  (See, because he's probably actually killed some ladies before.)


"Homicidal!?"

"Nonono... uh... not always. I tend to... be nicer... anymore..."

Zero X. Diamond
You know, as of about half an hour ago.


Sandra just didn't get this guy. A homicidal maniac who is turning red and stuttering while talking to her.

Zero X. Diamond
Usually this would be the cue to run.


Oh well, she'd seen stranger, most of which during her stay in the Phantom Zone.

Mayor Mike Haggar
I think I'd show a little more concern about the self confessed murderer in my party's midst...


EDIT: Ugh, I hate it when someone posts while I'm writing... [Frown]


Sandra, a little spooked to be truthful about Bob for the time, decided to let bygones be bygones, as she ran.

Spoony Spoonicus
She ran so far a-way-ay-ay!  She ran all night and day, but couldn't get away!

Zero X. Diamond
Yes, run!  Run away and never look back!


She had planned to help regardless anyways of what her parents thought. She knew they have let her anyways.

Zero X. Diamond
There's a word missing here and I couldn't guess what it is.


Behind Sandra and Zac, trudged Nebiroth, with Bobon

Zero X. Diamond
Bobon is my favorite character.


his shoulder again. His stomach's face still screaming "FOOD!!" every 20 seconds or so.

Zero X. Diamond
Just jam Bob in there so we can end this painfully awkward romance thing before it gets any harder to read.


Also, Glenn, James, Penelope, Terrance, Lance and Johnson

Clobberpuppy
and Fred and Velma and Shaggy and Scooby and Daphne and Captain Caveman and Brenda and Dee Dee and Taffy and Marvin and Wendy and Wonder Dog and Fred and Barney and Wilma and Betty and Pebbles and Bam Bam and Josie and Valerie and Melody
Captain Caveman
CAPTAIN CAAAAAAAAAAVEMAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!!!


slowly and cautiously followed the large being, still nervous around a being as such, especially since he had called Sandra a "pink-haired brat". Bob was still trying to think well of love and the way it worked.

Zero X. Diamond
He was still trying to get his head around the pronounciation.


In the park, Sandra spotted a teak-jerking sight[to her at least]: Ness, Paula, Jeff and Poo were all lying on the ground, frozen in place, looking as if they were staring towards the sky. By the look on Jeff's face, he looked confused about something. Paula's mouth had been open as if she had been talking when frozen,

Zero X. Diamond
Unfortunately for her, a family of dung beetles had been unfrozen nearby and had built a nest in there.


 and Poo and Ness had been look up as well with half-wide eyes. Sandra recognized her sister perfectly, and noticed a slight air of change around her sister since last seeing her. She was a lot braver than in their young years from the expression on her face.

Spoony Spoonicus
A keener eye for detail than Sherlock Holmes, yet is somehow unable to recognize simple solutions to problems...


She still wears a similar wardrobe compared to childhood, and she still has the cute little ribbon she always wears. She then glanced at the others briefly. First Ness: his appearance made him look like a Minor-League baseball player, and he seemed to sport that odd air of a hero's as well. She looked at her dad and asked him, "Who exactly are these three friends of Paula's anyways?"

Zero X. Diamond
"Their names are Moe, Larry, and Curly and they slap each other around for fun."


Penelope decided to be the one to explain briefly, starting with the meteorite landing in Onett, and then Paula's dream about him and Giygas, her kidnapping at the hands of the happy-happyests, Everdred giving them the money for the Runaway 5 show in Twoson, their journey to Threed, Paula's call to Jeff, Jeff's trek through Winters to free her and Ness. Jeff joining them and defeating Barf and meeting the Mr. Saturn tribes, and then the Dusty Dunes and Fourside, Paula's second kidnapping by the Dept. Store Spook, Moonside, Paula's second rescue, Summers, Poo's arrival into the group, Scaraba and the Pyramids, the Hawk Eye, the Stonehenge base, Lumine Hall, the Lost Underworld, the Fire Spring, Ness's experience in Magicant, then the trip into the past, and the battle with Giygas.

Zero X. Diamond
She explained it briefly.  It only took her about thirty minutes to get through the details of everything she decided to cover.

Spoony Spoonicus
Also, she wasn't present for 90% of that.  Maybe Ness wrote a book or something.


Sandra then understood for the time about them, and decided to examine them before unfreezing them immedately. She decided she'd start with Jeff, and cast Dispel on him. Jeff became unfrozen shortly after, but the aftereffects of the time freeze caused him to pass out momentarily.

Zero X. Diamond
Fuckin' wimp!


She then unfroze Poo, and then Ness, and then finally Paula, saving her sister for last, in case she recognized Sandra, not wanting to forget unfreezing the other had she been the first.

Spoony Spoonicus
Sandra has some major ADHD I guess.


However, like Jeff, they all passed out for a short time from the aftereffects.

Zero X. Diamond
So they're all apparently weaker than her dad's friend and her mom.


Sandra picked Paula and Jeff up, and put them over her shoulders, asking Zac and Glenn to grab Ness and Poo to carry them with her back to Polestar. On the way back, she noticed Nebiroth watching her with an odd glare. She stopped for a moment and asked, "Why haven't you tried to kill me yet, anyways?" "Long story, pink-haired one. Need to return to house. Nebiroth explain all to you when we get there and other friends and pink-haired one's sister awake." the monster replied, his tone devoid of anger, which had Sandra really spooked. The Nebiroth she knew wanted to rip her apart to avenge Sardius and Austorouto.

Zero X. Diamond
But this is the all-new Nebiroth, retooled for a younger audience and tons of overzealous merchandising!

Spoony Spoonicus
You're more afraid that he's not being violent and uncontrollable.  Right...


[bleh, the following may be VERY long because of back stories of various ACs.

Zero X. Diamond
GOD DAMN IT, NO!  DON'T YOU DO THIS!


 You've been warned -_-; Sorry ahead of time, all.]

Zero X. Diamond
SORRY IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH!!!!

Spoony Spoonicus
Prepare for another huge run-on sentence of backstory with no relevance to the current plot!


Back in the Polestar house, everyone was gather up in the den, Nebiroth had been given some frozen food out of the freezer[he had to eat it that way since the stove was frozen], and the chosen four were asleep in various beds, still not awake from the unfreezing, Paula in her own, and Poo on the floor since he was indifferent to it for some reason.

Spoony Spoonicus
How would they even know that?


"Alright Nebiroth, please explain your actions, and how did you get here?"

Zero X. Diamond
Can I boycott this giant piece of exposition?  Is it too late for me to back out?


Sandra asked as calmly as she could for talking to the head minion of the late Sardius. "Nebiroth talk to pink-haired one's mind. Easier to explain." he said, opening a telepathic link into her mind. /Pink haired one, Sandra. You hearing me fine?/ \Yeah, perfect.\ Sandra replied.

Mayor Mike Haggar
Just nod if you can hear me.


 /To answer how I got here: do you remember the wizard that would constantly pop out of various places in the Phantom Zone?/

Zero X. Diamond
Kamek?


Sandra did remember the blue-clad, mustached wizard Nebiroth spoke of.

Zero X. Diamond
Ohhhhh... Geno.


 He had tried to turn Sandra into various creatures many times as a trap set for her, but she always managed to knock him away or avoid his spell blasts if too far to attack him. \How does he have anything to do with it though?\ /The Wizard was once a mage from the Bourdon Towers, where you traveled to as a younger girl it seems.

Zero X. Diamond
But after that, The Wizard went on to invent the mighty Power Glove.  It's so bad.


Like the mages that opened the gate you came though, he could do similar. He was able to lock onto faint traces of your aura from the time you came to the Phantom Zone 1 year ago, and from them, he was able open a gate for me to follow you through. As for my reform: it is a long story, you see, when I came to this world, I went a different way than you it seems, and I ran into some of the other guys here, and a monster called Smidgen. It attempted for an odd reason to swallow me, but I was appearently too big for him, and I gave it a hard time, and with the help of my new friends here, as well as a new techinque of mine I had been originally saving for you, we destroyed Smidgen, and I learned that Sardius was a big FAT LIAR!

Zero X. Diamond
Yes, the mind of a tactical genius.

Spoony Spoonicus
And the personality of a five year old who's losing at Checkers.

 Nebiroth ended that thought on a loud note. \What do you mean by a "a big fat liar"?\ /Sardius told me, Austorouto, Freon, Hydra, Mongoliow, Branclera, and Cockatrice that humans were disgusting, arrogant beings, that they had no regard for anyone, even themselves.

Zero X. Diamond
Reading this is causing me to lose regard for everyone, especially myself.


But until you arrived, none of us except Cockatrice had seen humans, so we had to believe him.

Clobberpuppy
Ooo, let's hear Cockatrice's irrelevant backstory next!

Mayor Mike Haggar
Let's not.


 Austorouto also told me that he thanks you for freeing his soul from slavery of Sardius, and for destroying him,

Zero X. Diamond
Thanks for killing me.


and now I no longer want to avenge Sardius because of which, and as for Austorouto, he told me that you could keep his cape. I am still curious to know if you've changed in style at all, but a spar between us will have to wait until this is over. Listen to these words carefully, Sandra. The time anomoly is appearantly being caused by aliens from space,

Zero X. Diamond
A creature from a world ruled by magic can conceive of outer space, let alone aliens?  Sure, okay.  Whatever.
