This is based on the whole story of Ne-Yo's album Libra Scale. I feel that adding Muppets to such a captivating story will make the story even better! For those who do not know who Ne-Yo is, find out who he is and watch the trailer for 'Libra Scale'. It can be found online. _________________________________________________________ Now, we have our roles: Kermit, Fozzie and Gonzo as The Gentlemen Sam The Eagle as Numinous, the man who grants The Gentlemen their powers (his name will still be Sam) Miss Piggy as Pretti Sinclair, a women doomed to fall for one of The Gentlemen (but her name will be Piggy Sinclair for the sake of the fic) _________________________________________________________ Chapter 1: The Gift Of Powers Kermit, Fozzie and Gonzo just looked at the strange man, well, eagle who had emerged from the white limousine parked only a few feet away. He had started off going on about how each one of them was an upstanding citizen, yatta yatta and then got into an explanation of how he could give them great power. They had decided to accept his offer, honestly, what harm could it do? They were only 3 garbage men, and honestly, anything was better than being a garbage man. “Since you have accepted, there are 3 rules you must follow: Number one, you are to at all times and at all costs protect this city. This also applies to the great nation of America itself. Number two, you are not to tell anyone why or how you received these powers. And finally, number three...This is the most important rule of all...” Sam paused for a second, just to make sure they were listening. “Under no circumstances are you to fall in love.” “So, what you're saying is that all we have to do is follow these rules and we'll be the men?” Kermit was the first to speak. “Precisely.” Sam nodded, “However, I must warn you that the abilities given to you are for the sole purpose of protecting the world, all while having the power to destroy it!” “The power to destroy the world? Cool!” Gonzo couldn't stop himself. “Gonzo! We're supposed to defend the world. Not destroy it.” Fozzie explained. “I know that, its just so...cool!” Sam sighed, knowing that even though they were weirdos, they were the right choices. “Now, if you'll come with me.” He opened the door to the limousine and the newly appointed gentlemen piled in after him.
