    Here you go. My first chapter of Kyle's background story of how my character was born and how other things have happend before everything else. Hope ya'll enjoy. Let me know if anythings wrong.

    Chapter one: The Beginning

    In a small town near a big ocean lived two scientists, a boy, a girl and five animals. A yak, a Bigfoot and three rats. Their names were Max and Jena Moore. Their kids Kyle and his sister Marian. And Yakky and Biggy. Oh yea and those rats. But to move on. They had moved there (that is the two scientist) from a huge city full of shopping stores, restaurant, inventors and tall scrapers. They had been wanting to move for a long time but couldn’t because of expenses.

    It was in those days hard to get a new life going. So they thought about having a baby if they couldn’t get out of the city. So they did. Both their parents were not to surprised about this. They did not think they would be able to make it out there in the real world. So did they listen to their parents. NO! They knew it. They knew they could take care of a child. One day it happened. Jena was pregnant. So after a few labors and pushing and contraction the baby popped out.

    “Oh isn’t she just beautiful.” “I can’t say anything. She has just left me speechless.” Said Max. “What should we name her?” asked Jena to Max. “How about Jenny?” “No that’s to close to my name. I’m thinking Samantha sounds good.” “I hate that name.”

    Just then their assistant came into the hospital. “What about Marian?” “What are you doing here, Edgar?” asked Max. “Oh I just thought I would come by to see my boss and his new daughter.” “So about the name.” “What do you think hon?” “Hmmmm, sounds nice. I like it.” “So her name will be Marian.” said Max picking her up.

    Several days passed and Marian grew like a weed. She started learning her abc and 123s. They thought they would keep her from the real world until they thought it was time. So she pretty much stayed in the lab. Jena taught her all her words, numbers and lots of different languages.

    One day in the lab Max was doing some super secret experiment. Top Secret. No one would know what he was doing expect for Edgar, Marian and Jena. Max had just poured some green liquid into a beaker. “Ok this should do it!” Boom! A small explosion puffed into Max’s face making it all black.

    Marian had been watching her dad all that day. She started laughing at her dad. “Do you think your father is funny? He is.” said Max whipping his face off. The next time wasn’t going to be fun. Max then picked up a beaker of what he thought was green but was blue. Marian had switched it. She didn’t know she was about to make her father pour in the wrong stuff. She was just playing around.

    Well he poured it into the beaker with the yellow liquid and then it came. A huge explosion which made the whole lab start to fall apart. It made everything crumble and fall to pieces. Max grabbed Marian and ran to find Jena and Edgar. He saved whatever he could and flew the scene. There Jena and Edgar were. They too had heard the noise and flew out to the front. They watched as the lab/home crumble down to a big pile of concrete and brick. Everything they worked for was gone.

    The only thing Max had saved was his life, daughter and a couple of liquids that if they would have been caught in the explosion it would have been their lives. Where were they going to go now? They couldn’t go to either of their parents. That would be just them telling them so. They thought of so many things to do but couldn’t find the one thing that wouldn’t make them asking for money or a place to stay. So they did the one thing they could do. Marian was the one thing holding them back.

    So they let Edgar adopted her. They couldn’t let Marian grow up without anything she need and things they would love to buy her. “You take good care of our girl, Edgar.” “I will boss. I promise to give her what she needs.” “I love you Marian. I love you so….” said Jena who started to cry her eyes out. She couldn’t stand to see her baby girl go. “Don’t worry hon. Will get
    all the things we need and get her back..” said Max hugging Jena. “Bye baby girl. Daddy will miss you. But well see each other again.” Marian hadn’t ever spoke before but then she said “Daddy?” and one tear left her eye and fell to the pavement. And just like that Edger was gone.

    Years had passed. And they ended up having another baby. They had been living in this new house and everything was back to normal. They couldn’t forget about their baby girl but also had to move on. They knew that she was doing ok and everything. But just didn’t bring it up around anyone or anybody. They had just arrived back home with the new baby boy. His name being Kyle. Boy were they happy again. They now could teach him how to walk. Learn his numbers and alphabet.

    Next to them lived a family of three. A dad named Bo Moppet. Christy the Mom and Vic their baby boy. Oh and their dog Ted. The Moppets had heard there was a new family who had just moved in. They wanted to greet them as most neighbors do. So she baked them a cake. Her and Bo (who didn’t really care for greeting new neighbors) took the cake as a welcome gift. “Come on honey. Let’s welcome the new neighbors.” said Christy dragging Bo over to the steps of the new neighbors.

    Christy knocks on the door. “But I really don’t think we need to…” Just then the door opens. “….oh hi there new neighbor. I’m Bo Moppet. And this is my wife Christy. And you must be…” said Bo holding out his hand. “Max Moore. And this is my wife. Jena. “Please to meet you. Why don’t ya’ll come on in for a while.” said Jena. “Oh well were kind of in a hurry....” said Bo before Christy interrupted. “Sure.” “I thought we weren’t going to stay over here long?” said Bo whispering to Christy. “Just get over it. Were here so there. Oh by the way this is yours. I made it just for ya’ll.” said Christy handing the cake to Jena.

    “Thank you so very much. You’re the first people who have brought us anything.” “Let us show ya’ll two around the house.” said Max. So Max and Jena showed the Moppets around the house. Showing them every nick and cranny. But one door in peculiar seemed to be locked with several locks. What could be behind this door? A sign on the door read “Beware!”

    “What’s in there?” asked Bo. “Oh nothing Come this way and you will….” said Max trying to distract them from the door. “Just nothing?” asked Bo. “Just tell’em.” said Jena whispering to Max. “But there’s some really secret stuff in there.” “What could possibly go wrong?” said Jena. “Ok if you say so but if they run out of this house screaming it’s your fault.” Max proceeds to open the door. “There you go, Mr. Moppet. That is what is in there.” Christy and Bo’s eyes got really big. “Wow!” said Bo lookin around at every thing. There were small and big animals hooked up to everything you can think of. “This is neat. So what do you….” said Bo before getting interrupted by Christy again.

    “Uh look at the time. We have to go. Our son is probably hungry.” said Christy grabbing Bo by the hand and rushing out of their house. “But honey I was just getting interested. Can’t we stay longer?” said Bo trying to hold his wife back. “Sorry about this. She gets a little out of hand. I’ll have to come over some other time. Nice meeting ya’ll. Bye.” said Bo being dragged away. “See what I said.” said Max to Jena. “Yea but they weren’t screaming.” “Ok so they didn’t scream. But they still left.”
    “Oh don’t worry about it. Like she said, their boy was hungry. That reminds me. Have you seen our boy?” “In his crib asleep. I think that where I should be. Asleep.” said Max.

    Nice beginning there Kyle. Maybe why not too many people have found it is cause of the title. You put it in Friends & Family, I guess they've opened up a loophole to let fanfics of the Moppet Family stay there... But it should've had "The Moppet Family" or "The Moppet FamFic" in the title. That'd bring us over like a flash of lightning.

    Oh, and the scene at the beginning with the whole Moore family... You'll connect back to that at some point right?
    Good stuff, keep posting more story.
  8. Erine81981

    Erine81981 Well-Known Member

    Yes I'll point back to that when I get the whole beginning finished. Meaning I still will have at least two or three more chapters then I'll point back yes.

    THe storyline here is good Kyle. I'm looking forward to see what happens next! How they grow evil-er...not that eviler is a word...er...

    And, yeah, it would be a good idea for other MopPFam writers to put MopFamFanFic in the title, but it's ok anyway.

    Here you go gang. Read it and wip.

    Chapter two: The Beginning

    Over at the Moppets, Christy couldn’t understand what they were doing with those poor animals. Them being hooked to machines and tubes coming from their backs, heads and other places. “They’re scientists dear. That’s just what they do for a living.” said Bo trying to clam down Christy. “But you know how much I love animals. They’re hurting them.” said Christy tearing up. “It’s ok honey. We just won’t ever invite them over.” said Bo hugging Christy.

    A few years had past and everything was forgotten about the new neighbors. Nothing unusual had happened in the last years. It’s almost as if they didn’t even know about them being there. It was like they had vanished. Never talking to each other. Even when mail would show up on their doorstep without being put in the mailbox first. Until the day two little boys meet. They were both out in their backyard playing with whatever they could find.

    Now there was a fence that separated both houses but there was a big hole that was in the middle of it. Both the Bo and Max had told their wife they would fix it but with us men we do it when we want to. The boy on the right side of the fence was Vic of the Moppet family. Oh yea and their dog Ted. Both the boy and the dog had a wonderful friendship. They did everything together. At the time they were playing fetch the ball. Kind of funny for both of them playing it. Vic would throw it. Ted would fetch.

    Then Ted would throw it and Vic would fetch it. Kind of funny. “Go long Ted! This is going to be dozie.” “Rok Ric!” barked Ted. Vic threw the ball. “Ri got rit!” said Ted running after the ball. The ball then bounced over the fence. Ted wasn’t watching where he was going and slammed into the fence. He was to busy telling Vic he would catch the ball.

    “Sorry Ted. I threw it to hard.”

    “Ro Ruh.” said Ted pilling himself off the fence.

    “Well since we have no other ball to play with. I’ll have to go get it. Give me a push Ted.”


    Ted started to help lift Vic over the fence ‘till he saw the hole. Dropping Vic he ran over to the hole.



    “What is it Ted? said Vic picking himself off the ground.


    “A hole. Hmmmm seems better then being dropped on the ground by you.”

    Ted grumbles under his breath.

    “This is one scary backyard.”

    The grass hadn’t been mowed in years. It looked like a jungle to Vic. So he grabbed a stick and started swing like a boa knife.

    “Ungard!” said voice.

    “W-who’s t-there?” said Vic ready to swing or run.

    “I’m the king of the jungle. Who are you?” asked the voice.

    “I-I’m Vic. I’m lookin’ for my ball. Have you seen it?”

    “Do you mean this ball?” said the voice coming out of hiding. “Hi. I’m Kyle. Glad to meet you Vic.” said Kyle holding out his hand. “Sorry if I startled you. My parents don’t let me out much.”

    It’s like when they first saw each other they had something in common. They couldn’t understand but they just knew. Having meet they couldn’t stay away from each other. Now on the other hand, Christy and Bo didn’t know about the Moore’s kid. They had never mention him to them. After that commotion with them meeting each other they just never had talked to one another. Day started turning into night. Vic and Kyle had been playing and talking of all the things they liked and disliked. Christy had been worrying about this whole time.

    “Where’s Vic?”

    “I guess in the backyard playing with the dog. Where else would he be?”

    “He could be anywhere. Don’t you ever worry?”

    “I try not to. I’ve heard it makes your hair fall out. So I don’t worry.” said Bo watching TV.

    Christy stomps off to the backyard. “Vic? Vic honey? It’s time for your bath.”

    Ted who had been resting by the hole in the fence heard Christy voice.

    “Ric? Come on. Rit’s time to go.” said Ted barking.

    “I hear my mom calling me. I have to go. I’ll see you tomorrow. Bye!” said Vic running off.

    “Yeah. I’ll see you tomorrow. See yea! Maybe you can come over sometime.” said Kyle waving to Vic.

    “Ok. Bye.”

    “Where had you been young man?” said Christy with that mean look in her eye.

    “I was playing ball with Ted and my ball went over the fence. I had to go get it. I didn’t have another ball to play with.”

    “You could of asked one of us to go get it for you. So then what?”

    “I climbed through the hole in the fence…”

    “The one Bo said he would fix since 1976. Go on”

    “So I went to go find my ball. That’s when I meet this kid.”

    “What kid?”

    “The one over on the other side of the fence.”

    Where Vic had pointed was the place that Bo and Christy had seen those poor defenses animals were hooked up. It was the Moores backyard. Had Vic really been over there? Christy was furious! She marched into the living room where Beau was reading his newspaper. Christy looks down at Beau. Beau looks up at Christy.

    “What are you looking at?” asked Bo.

    “Do you know where our son has been?”

    “In the backyard?”

    “Nope! In the Moore’s backyard. That’s where!

    “What’s wrong with that? He’s a big boy now.”


    “Ohhhhh, she used my whole name.” said Bo groaning.

    “How do we know if this kid might even be a kid? What if it was part animal part human? Vic could have been eaten by some beastly human animal. How would you have felt about that?” asked Christy with her arms folded.

    “I’m really sorry dear And I don’t think that they would make a child half animal. I just think you baby him to much. I hope to say that was never have another baby in our life time.” said Bo.

    “What? What does this have to do with Vic being in the Moores backyard?”

    “I’m just saying. It’s getting late and Vic still hasn’t had his….”

    The water had been run and Vic had already went upstairs when Bo and Christy were fighting. He was tucked away in his pajamas fast asleep. Ted was on the foot of the bed fast asleep too. He was tired form the day he had. Christy and Bo went upstairs to check on Vic.

    “Why lookie there. He’s already in bed.”

    “We taught our son well. Expect for playing fetch with the dog. What is it that he loves about fetching that ball. There’s dog slobber and all sorts of stuff that..it’s like there’s someth….”

    “Shhhhhh...we don’t want to wake him honey. Good Night my little Vickie.” said Christy kissing him on his forehead. “Good night to you too Ted. Keep Vic safe.

    Ted looking at Christy as she pats him on his head as he pants.

    “Good night my tough viking. You go slash those dragons.” said Bo patting Vic’s head. “You too Ted. Good night.”

    As Christy and Bo left the room Vic’s eye opened and winked at Ted. He was ready for the next day. Especially getting to play with his new friend Kyle.

    Good chapter. You explained how Vic and Kyle met quite well. Few verbs that need to match the action, but I've come to hexpect that from a few forum users through my almost four years here and on other boards.

    One thing though... You've got Ted sounding/speaking more like Scooby-Doo, and normally that'd be OK... Except that Ted speech is more laced with "arf's" kind of muddled into whatever word he's trying to say. Have yourself a looksee through the earlier pages of the first MopFam thread and you'll see what I mean.

    Other than that, good job and I'm awaiting the next piece.

    First off, great chapter and you nailed the family side of Mother perfectly. I have to agree on how you have Ted speaking. Although....Astro off the Jetson's came more to my mind. :) Anyways, when I was writing The Reunion in the beginning I went to Fish'n'Wolfe and cried "help!" Here's what he told me, "Everything is basically a mixture of your basic arf, woof, and bark. Lace the words with those and you're good." Although.....it's not easy I'll admit that. Seems to me he's the only one who can get it exactly right. Great job! I can't wait for the next chapter.

    Hey Sis... Stuck in the Invisible "Offline" Mode? Guess you don't want those **** dirty APES finding you.

    Anyway, I said Scooby cause that's who Kyle's dressed up for Halloween two years running at the dorms, and we have a few good memories of him in that costume from the tubs threads.
    Oh well... Hope the MopFam thread picks up, been quiet there lately.

    LoL I turned it on while I was studying for finals...and never turned it off. Guess I need to go turn the thing off. I forgot about it. Well the thread's kinda dead b/c I think this is the week Beau, Vibs, Harvey, and Minidoozer are having their big vacation together. That's a good chunk of our players right there.
