  1. True pain is like realizing that you accidentally erased 654 words that you originally wrote for an epilogue you were planning on finishing before the end of a month during one of your previous writing sessions, and therefore having to start all over on it.

  2. Word count for the twelfth hour: Side Quest: 3,672 words Total word count: 3,672 words This is less words I've typed compared to my previous session, but even after this one has ended, I'm still adding up to the count for today. Of course, I'm still not close to finishing this particular one-shot project (hard to believe, but it's true), but I'm getting there.
  3. Word count for the first hour: Side Quest: 142 words Total word count: 142 words
  4. sometIMES all I think about is yOOOOOUUUU, late nIGHTS in the mIDDle of JOOOOOOOONe, heat waves been faykn me ouuuuuut, can't make you happy-yor nooooooow.

  5. https://tvweb.com/the-fairly-oddparents-live-action-tv-show-paramount-plus/ All around me are familiar faces Worn out places, worn out faces Bright and early for the daily races Going nowhere, going nowhere Their tears are filling up their glasses No expression, no expression Hide my head, I wanna drown my sorrow No tomorrow, no tomorrow And I find it kind of funny I find it kind of sad The dreams in which I'm dying Are the best I've ever had I find it hard to tell you I find it hard to take When people run in circles it's a very, very Mad world, mad world
  6. Same time (8AM-8PM) and method as before, nothing else for me to add here.
  7. Who else could've filled in for Chuckie for the late Christine Cavanaugh though? Perhaps Candi Milo, who filled in for Dexter in Dexter's Laboratory's final episodes, but with Nancy Cartwright having been the character's replacement voice and still being on the table, it's clear to see that this was the option that they had to go with. I'm just curious to see who will fill in for Stu, Howard and Chaz, with the former's actor having passed since 2016 and the latter two's original actors not being able or available to voice them in the revival.
  8. 1. Of Millions and Motley Crews The episode opens with the host, Chris McLean, live in front of a shipyard in Vancouver, Canada, alongside Chef Hatchet, as they were donned in pirate-themed attire. Chris announces that he has some things new and special planned for his newest season of Total Drama. With Camp Wawanakwa still demolished from the fracking incident in the All-Stars finale, and while Pahkitew Island had remained stable, Chris points out that using the latter as the set for the new season had to be backed out after the whole incident where it became susceptible to self-destruction had generated a plentiful amount of complaints from parents. As a compromise, Chris decided that he’s starting out fresh once more, but since he doesn’t feel like introducing another newer cast of teens so soon, he’s bringing back eighteen contestants and he’s setting them up to do some ‘island-shopping’ for him in a seafaring treasure hunting adventure, before then ensuring that each one he’s chosen will be brimming with danger as per his usual standards, right here on “Total! Drama! Treasure Tour!” Chris announces that his assigned cast will be introduced in pairs of three, starting off with six returning contestants that have been around since the first season. Shortly afterwards, a bus stops near the dockyard to drop off the six teens, with the klutzy jock, named Tyler, being the first to step off only to then fall flat on the ground. Justin, the heartthrob, steps off to help Tyler back up. The inseparable best friend duo Katie and Sadie are next to be revealed amongst the returning contestants, expressing their excitement in coming back with their collective “EEEEEE!” The competitive and short-tempered Eva stoically steps off before the last of the first pair, Trent, who Chris describes as Gwen’s former and number nine-obsessed love interest. He is shown with his usual guitar strapped to his back. The six returning first generation contestants meet up with Chris, as he shows to them the next bus reveals the second pair, revealing the five returning contestants from Revenge of the Island that they’ll be getting to know. The supernatural and incredibly polite devotee of Mother Earth, Dawn, is the first to be introduced amongst the returning second generation contestants. Followed by her is the cadet coming back straight from fashion school, Brick. He expresses himself with his usual salute as he steps off. Brick then coughs from the overpowering scent of hairspray, coming from the next contestant to step off: the brash and deep-tanned Anne Maria. The silent genius, B, comes out next. Chris jokingly refers to him by his full first name, Beverly, and so B responds by exchanging an annoyed look at the host. Staci, the teller of tall tales regarding her family, is the last of the Revenge cast to be revealed as part of the new season, and with her hair grown back. Naturally, she brags about how her great-great-great step-uncle Samuel was the one who invented buses. A third bus arrives afterwards carrying the third and last pair of returning contestants for Chris to introduce the others to. He then acknowledges that it’s his largest pair yet, with seven returning from the very previous season. Beardo is the first of the bunch to be introduced as part of the new season’s cast. Being the human soundboard himself, Beardo vocalizes intro music as his way of welcoming himself. Collective groans from the other teens from inside the bus would then be heard as the next contestant stepped off, revealing the fairytale princess and songstress, Ella, who was apparently accompanied with a group of animals. The next returning contestant is revealed by way of being pushed out from the bus, Sammy, the good cheerleader twin, who Chris jokingly refers to as “Samey.” Sammy corrects Chris about her name before the one who pushed her out of the bus reveals herself, Amy, the evil twin in the same cheerleader getup. Next up was the LARPer, Leonard, who expresses himself in his usual wizard-like manner. Topher, proclaimed by Chris as Total Drama’s resident Chris McLean super fan, was next to come out of his bus. Topher, of course, announces his return in the manner akin to the host’s. Rodney, the hopeless romantic farmer boy, is the last of the return contestants to be revealed and already falls head over heels towards one of the contestants familiar to him, Amy. The evil twin, of course, is annoyed by Rodney’s disposition, telling him to back off while her sister Sammy scoffs. Chef then unveils the feral Ezekiel for Chris to announce that he’s made one last addition to the contestants for the season. The eighteen contestants are scared by this until Chris reveals that he was joking and Chef then proceeds to throw the then-formerly excited and feral teen overboard within an area that is infested with sharks to demonstrate what happens if they were to be eliminated this season, as unlike the past seasons, they’ll be saying goodbye to the life of being a camper and will instead experience the life of pirates out in sea looking for treasure he’s set down in several different islands. Leonard points out that the theme of the season would also explain as to why Chris and Chef are dressed the way that they are, leading up to Eva to crack a joke by questioning if they’ll be dressed as ridiculous as them. Chris resents the small joke, then reassuring that it’s likely that they will be subject to competing in the same fashion before explaining why he’s selected the lot for the new season. Chris says that he was originally going for another All-Stars approach, but due to a combination of negative feedback with the first one, most of the contestants feeling too burnt out from Total Drama to compete, some of the contestants being unavailable due to do them being already pre-occupied, like Noah and Owen for example, and a certain number of past contestants still being reported missing since the fart balloons incident in the All-Stars finale, Chris decided that he would do somewhat of a “No-Stars season” and narrowed down his selection to his worst-performing contestants to date. Before Trent and Justin could assert the host’s statement about their performance quality, Chris adds by saying that because he needed a couple more first generation and male spots for his cast, he chose two of the four Drama Brothers to be reunited for this season, for they haven’t been in the competition since the second season and because he felt that it would boost the ratings if they were to come back, alongside two fan favorites he acknowledges in “Samey” and Dawn. Sammy is pleasantly astonished by how Chris addresses that she is a fan favorite, which angers Amy. Chris then advises for the bad twin not to get the boot early on, reminding her that she’s become one of the most-hated contestants after last season. Amy gives an even more aggravated look before Tyler raises his hand, indicating a question that he desires for the host to answer. Being made aware of the fact that his girlfriend Lindsay was inside of the balloons, Tyler demands Chris to tell him where she is and if she’s okay. Chris assures Tyler that Lindsay is fine since he’s had a group of drones examine the current situations of the missing cast members. However, he then says that he’s not sure where exactly they’ve landed and suggests that each of the contestants that he was unable to rescue after the destruction of Camp Wawanakwa may have settled in one of the treasured islands. Chris follows the eighteen contestants further towards the shipyard where two vessels are placed, telling them that they will be separated in crews of two along with a respective ship to sail. Their main objective is to retrieve one particular artifact that he’s placed within a certain island that he requires for them to navigate through. He further states that they will be using a map and compass to help ferry them to the specified destination. He then informs the eighteen contestants that if the ship were to somehow become damaged, they will have to rebuild it themselves, and if the important navigation tools were to be lost, they will not receive a replacement. The elimination ceremonies will be settled within the losing team’s ship and the one person who does not receive a gold doubloon will have to walk to plank and get thrown overboard. Chris also acknowledges that since the contestants will be taking on the role of pirates, they have the opportunity to rob a team’s chances of winning a challenge by way of attacking and raiding the opposing ship to steal the artifact of the challenge for their respective team. Because Chris figured that the challenges would be too difficult for his cast to handle, he has at least allowed for each of the returning competitors to bring one thing that wouldn’t be considered too much of an advantage. Justin appears to be the only one of the bunch to not have brought any particular object, proclaiming that his own good looks is the one thing that he needs to help him win the season, and that doesn’t need any extra help when he’s made it far before in the second season. Chris goes on to say that each crew isn’t complete without a captain, and so the first part of the first challenge will determine what each crew will consist of, and which of the two lucky contestants will be assigned as team captains. He then goes on to say that as usual, the teams will be merged later on and the remaining two contestants will compete for the ultimate prize of one million dollars. Before he could explain what the first challenge would be like, Chris is interrupted by the arrival of a limousine where two figures stepped into the scene. Chris is greeted by Blaineley and her lawyer who introduces himself as “Maaaaa….Manfred Businessman.” Chris says to Chef that he’s not buying into this but he will play along anyways so he’ll know what she wants. Blaineley says to the host that she would like to have a spot in the season since she had a short-run as a contestant in the third season, which would make her eligible. After Chris informs her that the cast is full, Blaineley retorts by saying that he will have to deal with her lawyer if he refuses. Manfred backs up his client by warning Chris of the “EVIL” consequences that he’ll face. Before Manfred could say any more, Blaineley stops him, quietly reminding him that he is to stay in-character before turning to face Chris again to say that she can and will take legal action. Chris, feeling annoyed rather than threatened by Blaineley, decides to give her an extra spot before letting her know that she won’t be able to take over his job as host as he long as he’s around, and that the same applies for Topher, who then responds by saying that he’s learned his lesson. Due to the last-minute change for his cast, Chris informs the now-nineteen contestants that he now has to change his plans for the first challenge. He won’t form teams until one person is weeded out. He adds that he isn’t too bothered by this change since he has been meaning to see how well (or how bad) the contestants handle themselves on their own. For the first challenge, Chris instructs for the contestants to retrieve two artifacts. The two contestants that come back with the items will be assigned as team captains and therefore will be automatically safe from tonight’s elimination. He then adds that the contestants are allowed to perform in groups. Chris continues on to say that the island that they will be transported to will be the island that remained intact from the Camp Wawanakwa flood: Boney Island. Topher points out that since they’re all in Vancouver and Boney Island is all the way in Muskoka, they would be required to sail across there in a circle. Chris mentions to the cast that the first time that they’ll be sailing will be through his and Chef’s own ship anyways, as it’s also shown to be stationed beside the shipyard. He then adds that the ship’s cabin can be used if [the competitors] want to confess anything before reaching their destination. *Confessional Cams* Topher is the first contestant to be shown filmed by the confessional cam, who talks about how after being outfoxed by the host last session, he’s going to be more focused on trying to win the millions and he will have to snag his chance of becoming a team captain, as well as to have a mind as sharp as Chris if he’s going to win. He adds by revealing the item that he brought, his megaphone, so as to show that he intends to hold a strong competitive spirit for this season. Dawn is the next contestant shown in front of the confessional cam, and she expresses how she’s become more determined to return the game after hearing about how much of a fan favorite she’s become after her early elimination in her previous season. She goes on to say that if she were to stay in the game, she would have to make the others feel more comfortable around her, and demonstrates that point by taking out a deck of her Tarot cards. She then acknowledges while she had been prone to conveying negative predictions and readings in her last season, she intends to elicit positive messages with the other contestants this time around with her card readings. Blaineley is shown next in front of the cabin cam, and boasts about how she’ll be able to obtain the millions with a scheme she currently has in mind, further stating that as long as she has the wristwatch to tell her “the time she’ll be able to outsmart Chris when I have the chance to,” she will have the whole season within her grasp, all while denying that it’s also because it’s to keep her cover intact. Shown next is Amy, who says that if she’s in danger of receiving an early elimination due how very disliked she is, she’s going to have to prove herself as a reliable and strong competitor to ensure that she’ll stay for long by taking the title of a captain for herself. She also points out that she would have to get rid of her sister “Samey,” but not before enacting her revenge for what she did to her last season, showing to the camera what she describes as just a souvenir from last season that she snuck in for this season: a fruit smoothie made from Pahkitew’s poisonous manchineel fruit in a container. Sammy is shown in front of the cam afterwards, whereas she talks about how if she and her evil sister are going to be competing in another season, she’s going to have to try and get rid of Amy, knowing full well that she’s out to get her after her revenge on her last season. She goes on to say that she’s also determined to win the challenge and become captain so that she can prove that she’s no doormat. To show how prepared she is for Amy to enact revenge on her, Sammy shows the camera a kit filled with medical supplies, saying to the camera that you’d never know if your evil sister will try to break your arms, break your legs, crack your ribs, electrocute you, or poison you. Catching the last thing she said, Sammy then nervously tells the camera to forget about that part. Tyler is then shown on the cam, who expresses his determination to get far into the season to impress his girlfriend, Lindsay, and as well as to find her, wherever she could be. Being made aware of how unlucky and accident-prone he can tend to be, he shows the camera a set of protective sports gear, such as knee pads and a boxing helmet, saying that if he has to make it far, he has to make sure that he’ll have to play the game as safe as possible. The perspective then changes to Leonard, who feels thrilled about the challenge of being made into a team captain so that he could then put his tabletop board game set, Cubicles & Creatures, to good use. Now directing his words towards Sugar, who he knows didn’t return for the season, tells the camera that he’s returned to impress her. Katie and Sadie appear in front of the confessional cam next, both unable to contain their excitement over returning for a new season after so long and then talk about how they both plan to be in the finale together. They then also say that if they ever end up being separated this season, they will at least have a respective framed picture of each other for the likely outcome, so that they’ll feel like that they never left each other’s side. Shown in front of the cam next was Staci, whose face appeared to be green from seasickness, and says that it was a good thing that her great-great-great-great grandmother Catherine invented barf bags. Rodney also then reveals that he suffers from seasickness and that he brought a bottle of bicarbonate soda, as it was a natural remedy for his seasickness that his dad had used for him. He then says that in returning for another season, he would be able to confess his feelings to one of the girlfriends he’s made last season and be able to find the right words to say this time, referring to Amy. Beardo is now seen in front of the cabin camera and, despite his reputation as the human soundboard, speaks by confessing to the camera about how he intends not to make the same mistake he made last season and participate for once, as well as to overcome his shyness. He reveals to have brought a portable turntable with one of his records attached, explaining that he’ll use it to try and express himself. The cabin cam then shows Eva, who talks about how determined she is to win today’s challenge and become a team captain, so that she could use her skills as a team player to win the millions after having her chances cut short in the very first season. She then acknowledges that the only challenge that she’ll be facing is that she would have to control her anger, before then showing that she’s equipped herself with her MP3 player containing a playlist with the most calming form of audio she knows – death metal music. Trent appears in front of the camera next, as he talks about how he wishes he could put behind the mistakes that cost his chances of winning in the last season he participated while he’s been brought back for a new season. He makes a promise to himself that he will try not to get himself hurt like he did numerous times before, or get up caught up with his number nine obsession, or throw challenges for anyone. He also hopes that the other competitors that he meets will appreciate his music, referring to his guitar. The last confessional cam clip shows Ella, who says that she’s being forced inside by Chris after he told her that if she were to do any singing, she needs to do it where he cannot hear it, as well as that even though the new season has Tour in the title, it doesn’t have a musical element. Despite this, Ella still remains her optimistic self and talks about how she hopes that the other contestants that she meets would appreciate her singing. She also hopes that she’ll make new animal friends while out at sea as she reveals to have brought a whale whistle. *End of confessionals* Chris and Chef’s ship then arrives at its destination. Afterwards, Chef announces to the nineteen contestants to hustle over to Boney Island or that they’ll have to be thrown overboard. With all nineteen contestants assembled by the Boney Island shore, Chris instructs to them that the treasure that they need to retrieve is a pair of pirate crowns made from bones. He goes on to say that the artifacts should be hidden inside a cavern or within the Fun Zone and warns the competitors of the mutants that lurk within the island, as they’ve made it their home since after the fourth season. He also warns them about zombie Ezekiel if they’re so unlucky to run into him, as he’s also made the island his home. With the challenge already going underway, Chris and Chef take off with their ship, leaving the contestants behind until it’s done. With both Eva and Topher deciding to take on the challenge alone, the rest of the contestants try to find someone to form a group with. Being good friends with each other and as well as being half of the Drama Brothers, Justin and Trent decide to team up. Being the two inseparable best friends that they are, Katie and Sadie pair themselves up. To give herself an easy advantage, Amy asks for two particular contestants that she believes to be the weakest links to form a team with her, those two being Leonard and Rodney. Amy takes advantage of Rodney’s lovestruck personality and gets him on her side by lying to him that he will win a date with her if he helps her win the challenge. Sammy observes this with disgust while struggling to find one or more willing partners. Blaineley, who refers to Sammy as “Samey” to her annoyance, offers to be on her side. Despite not fully trusting the older contestant, Sammy responds by telling her to get her name right and that she’ll allow for her help as long as she doesn’t plan on double-crossing her. Blaineley then appears in a confessional clip where she says that she intends to have “Samey” on her side during the challenge, knowing how much of a doormat she is and so plans to betray her once as she’s close to her victory. Brick tries asking Eva into forming a team with him. He is immediately taken aback the moment he experiences Eva’s anger issues. Eva responds to Brick’s offer by telling him that she doesn’t like being touched and that she can do the challenge by herself. Brick then appears in a confessional clip where he expresses concern about being on the same team as Eva due to how much her behavior reminds him of his former teammate, Jo. He goes further on to say that even though he’s returned to Total Drama after being given a break from fashion school, he is still a cadet a heart and hopes to win the challenge to show his strength as a dependable team caption, before then showing the lucky dog tags he’s brought for the season. Brick’s perspective returns to Boney Island where he offers Tyler to assist him in the challenge, seeing his passion for sportsmanship and his motivation to find his girlfriend as an advantage. Tyler, donned in knee pads, a pillow worn like a bulletproof vest, and an umpire’s helmet is surprised by Brick’s compliments. Tyler responds by saying to him that he has his doubts of being a competent team captain due to being so accident-prone that he brought protective gear. Brick then reassures to him that he does have the determination of a team captain, let alone a team player by letting him know that his concern about Lindsay are mutual towards his feelings on Jo, further saying that even though he and she did not cooperate, he does feel worried about her since he hasn’t heard back from her since she lost on the All-Stars season. Brick then adds to Tyler that if he’s feeling unlucky, he’s brought his personal good luck charm for the game. Realizing his mutual support, Tyler agrees with team up with Brick for the challenge. Ella and Dawn easily befriend each other after realizing they share their love towards animals in common, as well as because of Ella being impressed by Dawn’s ability to speak to animals after hearing her converse with one of the mutant animals about where she could find the two crowns made of bones. Afterwards, they agree to ally in finding the treasure. Meanwhile, Sammy is still trying to find a third member of her group since her sister is being accompanied by three and she’s also in need of a more trustworthy ally. Sammy eventually discovers that Beardo is struggling to form a group due to most of the others not being amused by his sound effects. Seeing Beardo’s talent as valuable, Sammy asks him to be on her group alongside Blaineley. Blaineley, of course, makes fun of her choice due to the fact that Beardo was the first contestant eliminated in the previous season, before Sammy asserts that his skill would be useful for helping find the treasure. As Beardo accepts Sammy’s offer, Sammy asks if he could speak a trigger word if he detects anything dangerous on their path. Beardo repeats Sammy’s phrase “trigger word,” her voice included, as a suggestion. Although astonished by the fact that Beardo can accurately imitate voices of other contestants, Sammy tells Beardo that it will do just fine. B, Anne Maria, and Staci are the only ones now struggling to find an ally. Knowing the situation, B realizes that he’s left with no choice than to ally with them. He examines his blueprints for protective armor from the mutants, and then offers the two to join forces by showing them the armor he’s built. B, not being able talk, tries to use it to convince the other two to side with him. Anne Maria takes his offer, thinking that he’s asking for her help to get the treasure. Staci accepts as well before going on a tangent about how her great-great-great-great grandfather Jonathan invented protective battle armor. B rolls his eyes as to indicate that he’s aware that this is the only team-up that he gets to work with. As each of the contestants has finished making their preparations, they could hear growls and other wildlife sounds emitting from the island, there then making most of the contestants feel intimidated. With the show running out of time to continue, Chris and Chef are shown inside their ship examining the contestants at Boney Island before signaling the end of the episode. After leaving the audience with some burning questions, Chris directs to the viewers that they’ll find out what will happen on the next episode of “Total! Drama! Treasure Tour!” -------------------------------------------------------------------- NOTES/TRIVIA: Each returning contestant has been mentioned to have been allowed to bring at least one item (or one assemblage of a certain item) with them for the season, and this is what the following had brought with them: Amy: A poisonous fruit smoothie Anne Maria: A whole season's worth of hairspray B: Blueprints Beardo: His turntable Blaineley: Wristwatch Brick: His lucky dog tags Dawn: Tarot cards Ella: Whale whistle Eva: Her MP3 player Justin: None; His good looks Katie: A picture of Sadie Leonard: Tabletop role-playing game kit Rodney: Bicarbonate soda Sadie: A picture of Katie Sammy: Medical kit Staci: Barf bags Topher: His megaphone Trent: His guitar Tyler: Protective sports gear

  13. 5. Card Games and Corn Dogs (Guru Gakuto; Episodes 7 & 8 ) Welcome back to the cinema, with your regular host, Chemist Bob. Once again, it’s another feature to tread through, but since this has become the point where the author would begin to stretch the spin-off’s length for each episode a little more, I figured that it’s best that I lay it low with my commentary so as to not stretch CBC3’s length. I should also note that this is the point where the author touches on a newer direction with the story to flesh it out more. Will these two episodes result in a clearer motive? A simple read will answer that question. 7. Take the Cape Edna Mode: Guru Gakuto – this episode title, NO CAPES! Sierra and co. were in Kaan’s jet, leaving the Forest of Illusion. Also known as the Forest Illusive or Haunted Forest, and what became of them. “Well, you’ve outdone yourself Theo,” said Jonah. “You’d probably get a free sandwich for controlling yourself, head first.” And you are way too young to know what ‘head’ means. “He’s obviously going to encounter that,” said Mason. What, you mean the free sandwich that Jonah joked about? Who and what are you referring to, anyways? “So, we failed to find Gakuto in Sydney, now what?” Now you’ll just have to find him somewhere that doesn’t contain Sydney, Australia, Gakuto Garden, or whatever you’d like to call the Forest Illusive. “I was thinking we go somewhere that’s…I don’t know, near the states,” said Kaan, “Preferably Cape Cod.” That is an oddly specific suggestion. Next thing, you’ll be asking Gakuto’s kids if they’d like to visit Llanfair­pwllgwyngyll­gogery­chwyrn­drobwll­llan­tysilio­gogo­goch afterwards. “Oh, I’d love too, even if I have heard of it in my life,” Sierra agreed. (Theme Song plays: http://www.youtube.c...?v=-AJPgMjJVMY) Let’s shake things up a little with the theme music, shall I? I know of one that suits it well: Minutes later, Sierra and co. arrived at a spot in Cape Cod in the sea of Massachusetts. “It’s awfully quiet, what makes you think Gakuto would be here?” Rick questioned. Perhaps Gakuto is there and you just got to hear hard enough to believe that. “I saw something that looked like a concentration camp site,” Kaan said, pointing at a familiar house. Not even like 20 paragraphs in and we’re already going there? Okay. This is only coming from the 15-16 year-old mind of the author after all. “What, a concentration camp in the United States…in 2022?” Mason said. I’m just as bewildered about the writing decisions of the author’s past self as you are. “This is definitely a-“ “A TRAP, of course; Horacio’s still following us, and he’s already gotten a head start?” Rick said annoyed. Mason: Well actually, I was going to say that this feel likes a repeat from our trip to Afghuppistan, except that this is something that should be considered an illegal hate crime, but I’ll take that reminder of me calling anything a trap is a running gag for this spin-off. “Well, it doesn’t look like something of Horacio one bit,” someone said, who was seen hanging on Kaan’s jet. Yeah, it’s missing that Horacio brand seal. “Who are you, and how did you get all the way from Sydney to here?” Jonah asked. “My name’s David Scribblemont, I’ve been following you seven after the destruction of Horacio’s reformatory,” he introduced. David: I could explain who exactly I am, what I’m here for, and how I’ve followed you all into Kaan’s jet, but the author has no time to establish any of those things or give me an excuse to not explain myself. “Um, wow. You’ve been stalking us for this long? You must be hungry after serving yourself some kelp clusters, or something,” said Rick. I heard in times of hardship caused by having to conceal one’s self in the act of stalking, the pioneers would eat coral. “Kelp, that sounds good right now,” Theo uttered. “And I think your flight pilot is Kaan, why is he here anyways?” David questioned. Dude, if it wasn’t for the fact that he can fly a jet, you wouldn’t be here talking to these people right now. “Because he’s hot,” Vivian answered. “Look kid, we don’t need your company, and personally Kaan’s,” said Rick. “We understand that you followed us since…that place, we doubt you know how to find Gakuto and stop Horacio’s whole abomination.” And I doubt that I know what the heck you’re blubbering on about. “I have a GPS,” said David. “Horacio is not here. He’s somewhere in the Gulf of Mexico,” he examined. If the underwater United States is trying to recreate Nazi Germany in 2022 for some godly reason, I have a feeling that Horacio must be in the Gulf trying to recreate the BP oil spill for the evulz, knowing his character so far into this spin-off. “Ugh…” Sierra groaned. “I’m starting to feel a fever right now, and I don’t know why,” she said. It eventually shows a virus bug created by DoodleBob, behind their backs. “Is anybody here a doctor? For somebody as leader, this is very important,” said David. “I used to be a doctor,” Rick said jokingly. Yes, for I have just stripped you of your doctrine in making good jokes in serious situations. “I may be right, and I may be wrong, Sierra looks like she has influenza,” said Kaan. In other words, it’s just…the flu, right? “Damn you influenza! Damn you to hell!” Rick exclaimed. It must really suck to realize that the current models for the pebbles of life aren’t pre-packaged with immunity from life-threatening illnesses. “Well at least she’ll survive, we have pebbles of live, our immunity slaves.” ‘Slaves’ is definitely not the most appropriate word to use when you’re literally standing in front of a concentration camp or in any context in general. “She may, and she may not,” David said, and then looked at his personally made manual. David: I’m not trying to say that she could possibly die, but...uh, she could die. “Don’t ask. According to my readings, certain viruses damage the immunity levels of the pebble of life.” “So, is there a cure for this sudden nightmare?” Jonas asked. “A somewhat rare juniper is the answer to our problems,” said David. Or you could try and search for efficient medicine that’s made from that rare juniper if you have the common sense to come up with that. “Ugh, the nearest one is in the Gulf coast.” If you’re not willing to take the risk, then what’s the point of you being here? Like, no one’s invited you to the party anyway. “Just…go there! We can’t have her die out here!” Vivian said. If it’s so urgent, then I don’t know why we needed that…pause. “So Kaan, do you think you can count as a special reinforcement for me?” David suggested. Kaan agreed, as they both flew away in the jet. Um…shouldn’t you have someone look after Gakuto’s kids? Are you just going to listen to the words of a stranger that you just met and leave them at the cape without adult supervision and put them at risk of being in the clutches of DoodleBob, Horacio, or whoever? Well, now I should know what’s going to happen next. “Before I die Rick, I wish I can watch the peaceful water with you,” Sierra said. Ah yes, one of the most heartwarming things to come out of a character that is on the brink of death: more uncomfortable incest implications. “I hope your last “dying” moments won’t involve losing your luster,” Rick replied. Oh Rick, I’m afraid to say that she already has. Suddenly, the seven kids were halted with another displeasing approach, as they hear a siren of a truck. Could this be the return of the 20,000LB SUV that I’ve been anticipating? The driver is revealed to have indigo-hair, a blue and black jacket, and jeans. No, it’s worse than I thought, it’s an outdated 50s stereotype! “No! I know what you’re all thinking: You guys think you can escape from me!” The mysterious guy said. “I like to do everything by playing my cards.” Mysterious guy: May I interest you all in some Yu-Gi-Oh!? That is if you don’t mind being slaughtered by my Blue-Eyes White Dragon. He then took out a card that activated gravitational pull on two of the seven kids. He grabbed Theo and Rick into his truck. He’s so “totally” not a molester for being some stranger that puts kids in his truck. Man, I am not enjoying this episode at all. “I’ll deal with the rest of you unless they can hold it long enough,” he said, and drove away. If the pebbles of life gave the kids mortality, then I can tend to believe that it also gave them bladders of steel. “That came out of nowhere,” Vivian said after a moment of silence. If you’re not so busy pointing out this a-pull, do you think you and your other adoptive siblings should go after that truck and free Rick and Theo? “So, who’s up for corn dogs?” Are diapers and fairy princess outfits also involved by any chance? “Vivian, we can’t just leave their sight, we can get them back, eventually!” Jason said. So, stop beating around the bush? I’m just saying. “Well, this really turned into a giant situation, Sierra is sick, we lost Theo and Rick, and we’re out of ketchup!” Mason said, holding up a corn dog. Stop with these badly-timed jokes! If the plot doesn’t demand jokes for a serious and dramatic moment, you shouldn’t be making them. “Let’s not panic yet, Kaan and David are on their way, and can just sneak inside that campground without notice,” said Jonah. Jonah: We can use this bush as our disguise because in dire situations like this, we must rely on cheap comedic acts! The scene goes to Kaan and David flying to the Gulf coast, they arrived and saw Horacio and his army of doodle minions. “I see he has contribution with DoodleBob,” said Kaan. “We’re going in!” Sounds like quite the golden opportunity for you to get captured. “Yeah, but this mostly focuses on the plant, just remember that,” said David, and they parked the jet, while walking away from Horacio’s sight. While they were sneaking away, Horacio unfortunately caught them. Called it. “And where are you two going?” Horacio then walks up to the duo. “I do not give up my guard for your precious plant for something little, you two should know how I deal with that type of situation.” What is so special about a plant that Horacio had to recruit DoodleBob and his entire doodle army to guard the premises? He continued, and brought out his pencil. “Your heads are led, and I’m the eraser.” Those pencil puns really did a number 2 on me…yeah, sorry that was even worse. The scene then goes to Rick and Theo inside the concentration camp. “Where are we? Who am I?” Rick said jokingly. I think the most important question here would be: what was the point of that joke? “No, we lost Rick! Do you guys serve corn dogs?” Theo questioned to the people in the camp. What’s with all these references to corn dogs? Was the author’s craving them at the time he was writing this? The past couple jokes about them didn’t even work, so stop trying to make them work. “Oh, I was fooling,” said Rick. “Now, I’ll calmly say…SHOW YOUR FACE BEFORE I KILL IT!” He said to a person with a close shadow. That’s some Spinny award-winning dialogue. “I’m Kaiden, I captured you both,” he introduced. Okay, glad we had this talk. “You’ll spend your war days in here, while I’ll try my best to make Horacio surrender, so you’re all my soldiers for life.” “But you’re too young to rule Earth,” a kid in the room said. Don’t give him ideas, a kid in the room. “For the last time…17 is not too young too young to be leader of a certain country, and/or lead of tyranny,” Kaiden replied. I’m sorry, but didn’t you stutter when you said “too young too young to be a leader?” How do you expect to rule a country when you go and flub one of your own lines? “But that’s wrong…you’re wrong!” Theo said. So what did we learn today readers? War is bad, oppression is bad, water is wet, lightning forks, grass grows from the dirt, etc. “Well, I was lucky to get two kids of Gakuto, and you both are going survive here without food or water, while you compliment how good I am when I request you to,” said Kaiden. How do you expect for them to compliment you when you’re going to let them die of thirst and starvation? “Oh my friggin’ god, THIS IS THE WORST ORGANIZATION SINCE LAST CENTURY!” Rick exclaimed. Boy, if you thought this happening in 2022 would be bad, wait until you hear about the Holocaust. Don’t you know how bad the Holocaust was??? “Don’t kill yourself, almost anybody here tried.” Was that a threat? The scene flips to the other five kids, with an ill Sierra. “I wish we can go to the Gulf coast, maybe we should fly there,” Vivian said sarcastically. “It’s only been one hour, how much time would you expect, miss ignorant?” Jonah said. I’d say enough time for her to be put in the sidelines when the episode needs her to. “Don’t get sassy over me, you don’t know what I consist of,” Vivian replied. It’s pretty clear that you don’t consist of any real ability besides being a kiss-up for Kaan. “But I want to!” Jonah said back. “Shut!-“Sierra said, she was about to finish until she coughed three times. Yeah, show some decency towards your group leader. She doesn’t have the energy to call you both out. “This is serious, who knows what could happen next,” said Jason. Suddenly Doodle Wizard came back, and sees Jason and Vivian, This all just happened in one paragraph. I don’t want to jinx this but how much lazier could this episode be with its pacing? “Not him again!" I’ll say. I didn’t enjoy that random jumpscare from him either. “Yeah, obviously my master ordered me to do this, and- OH MY FREAKING GOD, WHAT IS THAT OVER THERE!” Doodle Wizard, changing his tone. If you were cleverer, you could’ve tricked them into thinking you were looking at Rick & Theo, a Pizza Castle, or a corn dog stand because you know…this episode doesn’t have enough out-of-place jokes about corn dogs. The five looked, while Jason and Vivian suddenly disappeared. Wow, it felt almost as if it were like magic! “I don’t see anything,” said Jonah, as she and the other two looked back. “Lies, it was all lies!” “He’s the reason why I want to disappear just like him,” said Mason. The three remaining kids continued on their trail. Doodle Wizard has a variety of abilities and this is the only thing about him that tickles your fancy? The scene then flips to David and Kaan again. How many more of these scene transitions am I going to see for the rest of the episode? “Well…this is an unpleasant surprise,” said Horacio. “Alright, let’s begin!” Horacio used his pencil and drew a sword. “This is not a pencil; this is not a magic pencil neither. “ Thanks for the reminder that swords and pencils aren’t one of the same thing, also that’s not how double negatives work. Horacio, David, and Kaan’s “battle” began. Hey, hold up, I wasn’t prepared for a fight scene! Horacio swings and catches Kaan’s neck. Kaan moved backwards, until his minions grabbed him. David grabbed Horacio’s pencil by surprise and drew a shield. For minutes, Horacio and David block their attacks. Unfortunately, Horacio notices David’s not keeping an eye on the pencil. Horacio grabs it with no intention. Horacio then grabs David and throws him to Kaan and the minions. His minions are now going to force them to be in their next movie. “Nobody messes with the secondary master,” said Horacio. “Put them in the brig. Except for DoodleBob, the primary master himself. The scene quickly goes to David and Kaan being thrown into Horacio’s cellar. “Yeah, why haven’t I mentioned this before?” Horacio said. “Hello cousin,” he said to David. That would be because you were so focused on giving the episode its due fight scene. “Woah…” Kaan said, repeating the word eleven times. Woah, woah, woah, woah, woah, woah, woah, woah, woah, woah, woah. I can tell that it would a nuisance to write the other ten. “You and David are cousins? Oh yeah, a big twist. And I happen to be famous baize player in Austria,” he said sarcastically. Looks like Kaan is doing Rick’s job in writing some of the riffs for me. “What, you don’t approve of it? Work on that,” Horacio said to Kaan. Work on what, his sarcasm, or being a famous Austrian pool table cloth player? “And David, I see you’ve been helping a certain group…well, they made it once, and they won’t make it again.” The scene is at Kaiden’s campground again; an hour after the “battle.” “Battle” does seem to be the most appropriate word to describe it. Man, even the narration itself is self-aware about this spin-off’s problems. “Theo, we’re busting out of here,” said Rick. “But it’s only been two in a half hours,” said Theo. It’s not like you’re going to get something special for staying for three hours. “Kaiden’s already gotten on my nerves, and he’s already reminded me of Mason,” Rick replied. Sure Mason may be annoying, but is he a neo-nazi? He’s not, and therefore the comparison ends there. “We ought to memorize the halls security first.” Theo and Rick enter the hallway without notice from Kaiden. Rick convinces Theo to jump continuously, as they avoid invisible security beams. Okay, how could they do that if the beams are invisible? They are now seen outside. They both see the cameras. Rick and Theo hid in the back side of the concentration camp. They stood thin behind Kaiden when he came out of the back door. His no food and drink policy has really taken a toll on their physical health, it seems. When Kaiden was nowhere in sight, Rick jumped over the gate while he grabbed Theo until he was with Rick. “Finally, we’re out,” said Rick, panting. “What about everybody else? They deserve to bust out too,” said Theo. With that, Rick gave a facepalm. You may want to save that facepalm for when the episode decides to make another unfunny joke about corn dogs. Unfortunately, when the two started to run, they ran into Kaiden, who exited the premises seconds ago. “I was waiting for that,” said Kaiden. Even he knows how predictable that outcome was going to be. “Well, I failed to keep you guys in liberation, no matter. But that doesn’t stop me from trying to pummel Horacio.” Once again, that’s not what liberation means if the spin-off thinks it means something else. “Dude, why not stay out of it? A 17 year old with war hunger and a liberation set up is just…messed up,” said Rick. So is this episode’s writing in general. “Hmmm…well, I’m just going to play it that way with my cards,” said Kaiden and took out a card that made a zip-line appear. “It’s a challenge of survival in a zip-line through the gulf coast.” Kaiden: I shall let you two and everyone else go if you can beat me in a children’s card game! “Okay then…” said Theo. The scene then goes to Jason and Vivian’s whereabouts. “Ugh, we are we? The author wasn’t able to have him re-do this line. It’s so dark in here,” said Jason. The lights flash, revealing a brightly colored room, with the Doodle Wizard. “You can call me the Doodle Wizard. Everybody does,” said the Doodle Wizard. Okay, glad we had this talk. “Or by D.W, So does that mean I should call you Dora Winifred or Darkwing? which I’d like to abbreviate: Determined Warrior.” “Okay, nice for you to tell us that,” said Vivian. She does have a point. No one is going to call you that, Dora Winifred. “Hopefully, all seven of you should be missing, and incapable to search for Gakuto anymore,” Doodle Wizard continued. “Also, I’d like to challenge you both, even if your abilities are deficient.” Well, a doodle wizard’s got to curb his own boredom somehow. “Can we do it later? We’re trying to cure Sierra,” said Vivian. As bad as the writing for this episode has been, it’s good to see that it can get its priorities straight too. “Which is a perfect spectacle showing that I can actually win,” said the Doodle Wizard. “If it’s a challenge you want, we’re ready for it!” Jason said enthusiastically. The scene then goes to the remaining three tired out from walking. As well as from all those scene transitions “What is taking David and Kaan so damn long? I’m going to freak if they don’t show up at all,” said Jonah. “At least our courage is still showing up, it can’t get any-“Mason was then interrupted by Jonah. “Don’t finish that, it can get worse just by saying that, so…what if there are only three of us?” Jonah replied. Now you’re starting to sound like Mason. Suddenly, something worse happens, The spin-off’s narration sure does love jinxing things for the sake of the plot. as DoodleBob showed up in front of the remaining three. He grabbed Jonah and Mason. Being vulnerable to the virus that DoodleBob himself had given to Sierra, he’s keeping his distance from her. “So, there’s only three? Perfect,” said DoodleBob. This feels different from the DoodleBob who cared about having all seven of the Gakuto kids in his grasp. “Pretty improved speech there, unlike…what I’ve heard from history itself,” said Mason. And your point is…? “Horacio is a pretty generous guy, now let’s go,” DoodleBob finished and drew a doodle portal, transporting him, Jonah, and Mason to his lair. “Mason, Jonah…where is everybody?” Sierra asked, after noticing she’s all alone. Don’t worry about them. They just went to the store to pick up some CORN DOGS. The scene goes to Jonah and Mason inside DoodleBob’s lair. “Today has really gone unpleasant, right?” Mason said. “Definitely, we we’re planning to capture you all, but if it wasn’t for some dude taking Rick and Theo away… I guess deserting all but Sierra was a good call,” DoodleBob explained. ‘Some dude’ seems like the proper way of referring to Kaiden. “So…we’re going to be stuck in here forever, as Sierra…ugh, I can’t say it,” Mason replied. “No,” said DoodleBob and got his magic pencil ready. “There are really nothing to do but “demolish” you two,” he said. Come on, as predictable and narmy as it would sound, erase wasn’t in your vocabulary? One group of seven...plus two: separated into four groups leaving an infected Sierra. I could make a “and me makes ten!” joke but Jjs had beaten me to the punch in the previous segment. All put into battle, as war in the ocean is subject to continue. This closing paragraph for the episode is deeper than the Mariana Trench. To be continued. And that’s my cue to express my thoughts on the episode. I spoke negatively on some of the previous for being all over the place and inconsistent with its narrative and motive. This episode shares some of the same flaws, but for the most part, it’s just a really dumb episode. There was an abundance of dumb moments in this episode that made me feel like I was losing brain cells. When it’s not being inane, it’s bad for how predictable it is and for missing certain marks. The author’s past self tries to make his writing come off as smart by trying to tackle a serious subject from days of old and it doesn’t make matters better, and it’s coupled with a poorly-handled new character introduction in David, who is given a personality too vague for me to care about him. A surprising twist about him is revealed, yet it’s in the same episode we’re introduced to him, which just doesn’t feel natural. For all these reasons, this is the worst episode of GG I’ve covered to date, but that could change as I progress into this series. Let’s see how episode eight will perform. Before I get to that though, it’s time again for… RANDOM CHARACTER SPOTLIGHT OF THE EPISODE KAIDEN: What we know about him so far: He is some dude, as DoodleBob prefers to address him, who also happens to be somewhat a neo-nazi. Information I could add about him: He’s a neo-nazi. Will we be seeing him again?: Of course we will, even past the first season, as I’ve been made aware, but why would I want to be seeing more of him when, you know…he’s a neo-nazi? --CBC3 COMMERCIAL BREAK VERY SHORT WOW--- 8. Whirlpool Katrina …Alright, so while the previous episode showed a recreation of Nazi Germany in some form, this episode seems to be recreating a tragic natural disaster from two decades ago. At this point, I’m convinced that the author was throwing darts at certain life-changing events that had happened in the world. Perhaps the author’s next dart will land on the Watergate scandal. The next scene shows David and Kaan, still in custody by Horacio. “This is where it ends…and the worthless ones always lose,” said Horacio. “No back-up…no defense…no chances.” No items, Fox only, Final Destination. “No matter what you do, we’re going to get out!” David vowed. “Well…I’ll just wait until all seven of those nuisances are done like hell,” said Horacio. “Come on dude, that’s not the way you should brighten up! Technically, I know you’re nature is meant to be all harsh and all…” Kaan said, he was interrupted by Horacio’s guards. Oh goody, some riveting and “original” heroes to villains talk. “Shut it…time for my operation to be in stimulation,” Horacio said and held a control pad. Nothing happened. “God damn it…my batteries are lacking the electricity it needs.” Is this now leading up to the subplot where Horacio makes a detour to go and buy better batteries for his machine? I’d rather have that than what I’m reading through right now. “Kaan…I have a plan, but it’s an 80 percent chance that it will work,” David said to him, Knowing the narration style so far into this series, I’m feeling confident that it will be the 20% that wrecks your plan. “all we have to do is snag his pencil.” Kaan: Ooh, and once we do that, can we draw a funny face on him because comedy? With infuriation, Horacio dramatically waves the pencil at David and Kaan, to create a stronger lock, and an invisible force field around the brig. The narration strikes again, as I expected. “See, I told you both…no chances,” said Horacio. “I have to admit, it was so obvious David,” Kaan said to him. He’s right, David, this is what happens when you think out loud without making sure that your enemy has good hearing. “So, what intolerable plot do you have up your sleeve?” David questioned. “Just a simple old whirlpool: Katrina 2.0! The first whirlpool Katrina was clearly a prototype, as it was less than simple and old for Horacio’s standards. I really can’t explain… No surprise considering that this series hasn’t been able to explain most things. but you both better not move, I’ll be right back,” Horacio answered, and left to get more power for his controls. And then they moved. The next scene shows Rick and Theo with Kaiden. Oh, but we got to deal with this now. “Yeah…so we have a challenge lining through the Gulf Coast, now what?” Rick questioned. “I was about to set up my deck,” said Kaiden. “And it begins right now…Super Arena Shield, go!” With that, the rest of the open area was inaccessible for the three. And so starts the first episode of Guru Gakuto: Duel Monsters. “Um…we have no weapons,” said Rick. Alas poor Rick and Theo, they don’t have weapons… ”Rick, I’m hungry!” Theo added. …and food. “Fine, because you two needed some defense anyways…” Kaiden said and threw a few cards on the floor. For a character who tries too hard to pose as a serious villainous threat, he’s quite generous. “Blood of the Electric Eel, the Clay Sword, Magic Hoagie, and Rocket Boots,” Rick read, “This is the weapon choice?!” I heard a rumor that the Rocket Boots card is very powerful so I wouldn’t have my doubts. “Well, Magic Hoagie sounded pretty cool,” said Theo. Thank you spin-off, once again, for the reminder that the embodiment of Gluttony is obsessed with food. “Anyways, what else do we have to lose, this is for Sierra!” “Whatever, but this is still friggin’ ridiculous,” said Rick. Thanks, Rick, I needed that pre-made riff from you. The battle between the two and Kaiden began. “Blacksmith Sword, go!” Kaiden cried out, and it appeared in his palm. Rick activates the Clay Sword and hits Kaiden with it, reducing 10 points of Kaiden’s stamina bar, and 15 for his health. “Clever choice, but it seems that you’re all going to go a long way to beat me,” said Kaiden. Clever choice, you say? Perhaps you’re just not using your card properly. The battle resumed, Rick uses his Clay Sword again to hit Kaiden with the same amount of damage. “Magic Healing Potion, go!” Kaiden yelled out, his bars were full again. Man, both Yu-Gi-Oh and Kingdom Hearts have gotten downhill these days. “Hey, that’s cheating!” Theo said, appalled. Why should you be the one to talk when you don’t have a Magic Healing Potion card? “What do you expect? And this is pretty odd for a virtual reality card game,” said Rick. To be fair, a virtual reality card game is pretty odd for this spin-off. Just look at Undersea Mysteries Incorporated. The battle continues and it was Kaiden’s turn. He uses his Blacksmith Sword to hit Rick. His health bar reduced to 20 points, which is more. Thanks for the reminder. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have known that twice. Rick uses his Clay Sword again, but making it into a double combo, reducing 10 points of his stamina and giving Kaiden the same reduction. On top of that, Rick also wasted a good amount of his MP. “Attack Fruit, go!” Kaiden yelled out. It caused him to become stronger; the damage with his Blacksmith Sword was doubled to 40 points of Rick’s health reduction. From recoil, 5 points of his stamina were wasted. Now, if there’s anything about this game that should be considered cheating, it’s the idea that Kaiden may have set Rick and Theo at a low level. “Use the hoagie Rick; you can’t win with just an ugly sword!” Theo suggested. I’m surprised that this joke didn’t lead up to “you can’t win with an empty stomach!” because you know…this is Theo I’m talking about. “You do realize we only have one use for it, like it specifically says in the card, right?” Kaiden said. Dude, you never explained the rules to them, so why do you expect them to know? “Fine, I’ll do it, I was hungry anyways,” Theo replied, and stood for battle as he uses the Magic Hoagie. He brings out the Clay Sword and the damage was doubled by reducing 30 points of Kaiden’s health, and 20 of his stamina. After that, Kaiden heals himself again, with 10 health points, and 10 stamina points still gone. And ten minutes left to waste. “I pray we get a heal block card,” Rick said, crossing his fingers. I’m sure Neptune will be on your side if he’s invested in this card game unlike me. The next scene shows Jonah and Mason with DoodleBob. Not even the episode’s narration wanted to stay for the virtual card game action any longer. “This is just great, we’re always trapped!” Mason said. “Looks like three of seven of you guys finally see me in person, and there’s nothing you can do to stop me, and my magic pencil!” DoodleBob said, preparing his pencil. “But I want a magic pencil!” Jonah exclaimed. “I WANT IT!” Just wait for them to restock and you’ll get your own DoodleBob patent-pending magic pencil. DoodleBob used his magic pencil to create a giant doodle monster. “And because this is indeed my lair, there’s no way you both can run either…” So, how does this giant doodle monster factor into preventing Jonah and Mason from escaping, or in other words, running? Does it have the power to paralyze its foes or what? “Ugh, you are so unfair; you never set up a fight I want!” Jonah said. DoodleBob: My lair, my rules. The doodle monster then quickly grabbed Jonah and Mason. DoodleBob was targeting both of their Pebbles of Life. “Okay then, I’m craving to see some secrets and all that, and then I can rearrange them into dirt,” said DoodleBob. “What are you talking about? You’re after our pebbles or something?” Mason questioned. That’s a very accurate guess. “Having that around your necks…disables my chances of killing you two, it’s that meaningful, so this isn’t just a fight,” DoodleBob explained. The next scene shows the Doodle Wizard with Jason and Vivian. I’ll take this scene transition since DoodleBob’s plot wasn’t all that compelling either. “Cool, I’m ready for a battle anyways. This is for Sierra!” Jason said. “Oh yeah, Sierra…I couldn’t forget about her,” the wizard said. He then uses a spell to teleport Sierra to his place. “I see what’s wrong with her…it’s the work of either Horacio or DoodleBob!” Why not both? “And nobody cares what you just said!” Vivian said. I suppose this is a sign that the author’s past self wasn’t having so much fun writing this episode. “She’s just here to make both of your worries grow, and it’s all part of my plan!” The wizard added. Now let’s begin, this is more fun, since Theo isn’t around right now!” Oh no, who will bonk him with a stick when he turns into a doodle dragon now without Theo around? The battle began. The Doodle Wizard went first and conducted a spell to make a bunch of bats appear. Jason somewhat flinched, whilst Vivian was doing nothing. I’d feel pretty “threatened” too if I was attacked by bats. Don’t know what they did to Jason though. Jason forces her to join in thereafter. Vivian won’t be sitting on her butt from doing anything in this spin-off as long as he’s around. Jason didn’t know what to do and tried to grab the staff. The Doodle Wizard uses a spell to create a blast from the touch of his staff, giving Jason intense damage. This may be a lesson to all of you: don’t touch a wizard’s staff without knowing what the heck you’re doing. No one wants to be a Jason. “Okay…could’ve planned on using some kind of weapon before that happened,” Jason thought. ”You think?” Vivian said. At least Vivian had given herself the time to call out Jason on his stupidity. The battle resumes, as Jason still tries to thief the staff. The Doodle Wizard’s next attack was to create a batch of sea cobras; they were aiming for Vivian, as much to her dismay. Jason continues, and goes behind him this time. The wizard makes a laser beam to shoot Jason up to the chandelier. Okay, I was never told about this setting having a chandelier, nor did I see the setting resembling anything specific to begin with. Jason was just hanging while Vivian continues to freak out from the cobras, and throws one on the wizard. With that chance, Jason jumps down and thieves the staff from him. Yet another lesson to be learned when it comes to dealing with wizards: If one is giving you a hard time, throw a live cobra at it. The next scene shows Rick, Theo, and Kaiden again. Did they manage to figure out how to assemble Exodia in this stretch of time? “Give up you two, the magic from my cards means you ought to forfeit,” said Kaiden. “Would I forfeit? This Clay Sword still sucks but I’m still going to use it…but in my way!” Rick said. If it sucks, would that be a good idea NOT to continue using it? I know you’re new to this, but you’re terrible when it comes to playing a children’s card game. Rick uses his Clay Sword to fight against Kaiden’s Blacksmith Sword. Defending their hits for five minutes, These two must have been stacking up on their stamina if they were able to block their sword attacks for that long. this continues until the Clay Swords hits Kaiden, twice. Not once, but twice! We have ourselves an important hero moment, folks! Like usual, 30 of his health was lost, and 30 of his stamina was lost. Let’s not forget to mention that he’ll be using his healing card as usual too. Unfortunately, Kaiden’s sword causes Rick’s to crumble into dust. “Great, now we have the boots and the blood cards left to use!” Rick said annoyed. Kaiden was about to heal until Rick snatches it and throws the card into the force field, causing it to burn away in less than two seconds. I suppose this is the author’s way of expressing that he just gave up trying to form a solution to this predicament. “Well…uh…I was in the lead anyways,” said Kaiden. “But at least you weren’t wise enough to heal yourself.” With that, Rick gave a facepalm. It was that moment that Rick knew that he had brought dishonor to his family. “Come on Rick, use the Rocket Boots!” Theo suggested. “Sure, so I can PATHETICALLY jump on his face with my steaming soles!” Rick exclaimed. Of all those words he’s used, it didn’t make so much sense to me that he would choose to put such great emphasis on ‘pathetically.’ “On the other hand, I’m going to use it anyways!” With that, he activated the Rocket Boots. “Titanium Knuckles go!” Kaiden yelled out, and his hands appeared in a shining white armor. Kaiden would then come to the realization that he’s screwed up as his shining white armor isn’t shining white plot armor. The next scene shows David and Kaan again. And it was just when that subplot had reached its climax. “Well, I guess we ought to spend the rest of our days caged alive and unable to cure…” David thought. “David, I’m sorry, but I give up!” Kaan said. “GIVE UP you say…not in my book! But in this spin-off, he will. This is for Sierra, and we need more bright ideas to deliver this juniper on time!” David vowed. “Sure…definitely in the case that we’re being guarded, trapped in a force field, with a stronger lock!” Kaan said sarcastically. I could admire this guy’s optimism but when your enemy is a powerful dictator with DoodleBob and his army at his utility, I can tend to agree with Kaan and say that the writing’s on the wall. “All pencils have an eraser…so does Horacio’s, and this time, we’re lucky he’s not hearing us, and we’re suddenly whispering to each other right now,” David replied. Horacio: Hey, what’s this I’m hearing again about taking my magic pencil!? After that, Horacio returned with his improved controls. In other words, he came back from getting new batteries. “Now then, we can finally start my next plan of destruction!” Horacio said. He clicked on the particular button, and it happened: his whirlpool was created. “Now, destroy the cities I requested…I can takeover those spots after that!” After that, the whirlpool went off in its own direction. You know, you could’ve been more specific about what territories you want destroyed. “Hey Horacio, if you could drop your keys, we can’t get out, even though we’re highly protected by this invisible shield!” David taunted. I don’t know what point exactly you’re trying to make here, but kudos for giving your enemy some ideas… With that, Horacio erased the jail keys. “Thanks for letting me know!” …like so. “And because I’m not that important, I’d like to make a sacrifice,” said Kaan with his hand near the force field. “I won’t care!” “Hmm…whatever,” said Horacio. He then erased the force field. Fortunately, Kaan’s hand was near the lock, so he dodged, which caused the lock to be erased. David and Kaan were set free. Oh of course, he fell for that good old fashioned sacrificing-a-hand-to-be-erased-while-in-front-of-a-force-field-only-to-pull-it-back-out-so-that-only-the-force-field-is-erased trick, I would’ve fallen for that too. “The whirlpool is already causing the havoc I want, so you two are already too late, and I still have my loyal vanishing piece!” Horacio said, referring to his pencil. “Now you really got me in a huge decision I can’t make, both situations seems so important now!” David thought to himself. My proper response would be “Okay, and…?” but I guess yours works fine too. “Quick David, let’s get back in the jet plane!” Kaan ordered. Both ran to the plane with the juniper plant intact. Now where did they get the plant? I could’ve sworn I haven’t read anywhere in this episode or the last telling me that they retrieved it. After that, they flew off. “Yep, they always run,” Horacio thought. You could’ve used your doodle monster for that. The next scene shows Mason, Jonah, and DoodleBob again. “Come on doodle monster, I want to see more…more until the energy from the pebbles can finally be released!” DoodleBob ordered. After that, the Pebbles of Life gave out a shining light; Doodle monster: MY EYES! DoodleBob gazed into it for a moment. “Hmm…very interesting…” Suddenly, Whirlpool Katrina arrives in DoodleBob’s path, he grinned afterwards. “Well, have fun trying to save Sierra now, you two are free to go anyways…but watch out for that whirlpool!” DoodleBob exclaimed, and escaped, along with the doodle monster. You think you’re a villain after giving them that generous warning? “Come on Jonah, we better hurry!” Mason said, they both ran away to find the rest of the group. The next scene shows the battle with Rick, Theo, and Kaiden again. Fingers crossed that this will be the one that finishes it. Rick uses his Rocket Boots next and kicked Kaiden in the back. Kaiden loses 30 points of his health. Yep, I’ve called it a while ago that this would be the most useful card in Rick and Theo’s deck. Kaiden uses his knuckles attack, and causes Rick to lose 20 points of his health. Unfortunately, Rick was almost down. “Theo, mind to take over?” Rick asked, and passed the boots over to Theo. Theo uses the same kick attack, but on the back side of Kaiden’s face, making him lose the same amount of health. For a character that has been mostly built on the gimmick of being obsessed with food due to being reincarnated with Gluttony, Theo sure does a good job with overpowering his enemies. He may as well go down in history as one of the most powerful anime superheroes. Kaiden was almost down to…due to his healing card loss. I didn’t need that short little pause but thanks…for the reminder anyways. “Hmm…one more card…and I never seemed to know what it does…” Rick thought. He uses the Electric Eel’s Blood card. Suddenly, he felt stronger, and his health was restored by 15 points. Ah yes, the good old fashioned cliché where the last unused item is the best one to use in a dire situation. I would’ve never thought. Rick then borrows back the Rocket Boots. He takes multiple hits against Kaiden, and several punches. Kaiden now has 10 points of his health left. Excuse me, but I don’t recall Rick having Rocket Gloves. Disqualify him. “Good moves, Mega Sphere Attack go!” Kaiden yelled out. After all of a sudden, a giant, yellow, spherical attack was formed and did intense damage, unfortunately knocking down Rick. Do to wasting stamina; Kaiden goes down too, making Theo the winner. Like I would say, Theo’s power cannot be underestimated. After that, Rick and Theo saw the whirlpool, and stopped the zip line. “Finally…we won- oh hey look, it’s a whirlpool.” The next scene shows the others with the Doodle Wizard. Thankfully, this is also the final scene that I’m skimming through for this double feature. “Give up now, wizard! I have the power of this staff, and you’ll lose, definitely! And we’ll be able to save Sierra afterwards!” Jason said. “Okay fine, I forfeit…not only because there’s a whirlpool coming in our way!” The wizard said which caused Jason to panic a bit. I can presume that the one other reason is because the author needed an excuse to wrap this up. “Wow, that was pretty quick,” said Vivian, “so can you make corn dogs with that staff, Jason?” Just when I thought I was able to escape all those unnecessary jokes about corn dogs after reading though the previous episode… After that, Mason and Jonah came inside, along with David and Kaan with the juniper. They quickly cured Sierra with the plant. How? Don’t make me think that they cured her just by throwing the plant in her face. “Wow, what happened?” Sierra asked. “No time! There’s a whirlpool coming after us, leading to our doom!” Jason said. The battles were over; Indeed they are, and what did I gain from them? Just a waste of my time, that is. a strong disaster arrives courtesy of Horacio. Hope is still in their hands. Hope is the least that they can have. It’s not like the Pebbles of Life have any powers besides mortality, right? To be continued... That was the episode, and it left us on quite a cliffhanger. While the previous episode was bad for how simply dumb it was, this one was just really dull to sit through and gives me the impression that it existed just to drag the story longer than it doesn’t need to. This could be the case for the rest of the season, but anyways, time for this episode’s random character shout-out, and it’s another unorthodox one: RANDOM CHARACTER SPOTLIGHT OF THE EPISODE KAIDEN’S CARD GAME: What we know about it so far: Introducing Kaiden’s unnamed card game! You can get yourself a starter deck for a low price of $4.99! This game includes cards such as Rocket Boots, Magic Hoagie, Blacksmith Sword, Clay Sword, Magic Healing Potion, Blood of the Electric Eel, Fruit Attack, and more. Rules…who need rules!? Kaiden, the game’s supposed creator, never explained them. Information I could add about it: This could very well be the undersea version of Yu-Gi-Oh!, or for copyright-friendly purposes, Me-Si-No!. Will we be seeing it again?: Due to lack of market interest, it would be so unfortunate for me to say that the Me-Si-No! franchise wouldn’t be able to live past 2022. However, it would remain a cult favorite amongst tabletop gamers. Not much would change about the game except that the Mega Sphere Attack card would be banned.
  14. Already making plans for another one of these for this month. The time will be slightly earlier than before (8AM - 8PM) and this time around, I won't be updating by the hour, so I could see how much I will be able to write through that method.
  15. the salad girl from that one grubhub commercial midway into chomping on a piece of a salad like a brain-eating alien is my current mood.

    (Also consider this as my temp pfp before this month's event)
