Discussion in 'Fan Fiction' started by Bill Bubble Guy, Oct 19, 2006.
Wow, this just keeps getting better and better! And yes, Sylinde Brren does deserve that splender!
The party had been underway for twenty-five minutes when suddenly there was a loud sound of barking and snarling and the guests screamed as all the Muppet dogs came madly bounding among the people followed by Super Muppet and his henchmen. They were brandishing clubs and Super Muppet cried out, "This is a stick-up. Don't try anything stupid and my dogs won't hurt anybody."
This was the moment when the whistles would be put to the test. The Detectives and all the Police pulled them out and put them to their lips. They blew with all their might. The effect was slow but sure. One by one all the dogs fell asleep. Rowlf, Rover Joe, Sprocket, Baskerville, Foo Foo and even great big Barkley stopped in their tracks and collapsed snoozing gently. All the time the police were brandishing their own truncheons and blowing their whistles. Constable Barry Lee subdued bananainmebutt while Sargent Dave Ebersole apprehended popsicle. They put up a fight but in the end the officers had overpowered them and knocked their clubs out of their hands. They were forced to the ground and firmly handcuffed behind their backs.
But a bad thing happened. Patrolbear Fozzie and Sargent Link Hogthrob were attempting to arrest Super and Baba when they fell asleep while they were blowing their whistles.
"Oh no." Marty cried as he saw them fall to the ground. "These whistles must affect all animals, not just dogs"
"They're making a run for it." Snowthy shouted as he saw Super and Baba run away from the rest of the policemen and seize a hostage among the guests. A young female wearing an Electric Mayhem t-shirt with Floyd Pepper on the front. She screamed as Super held her firmly. "Don't try anything." he warned. "Baba and I are walking out of here to our car with this young lady."
As the Detectives watched on horrified, the two villians dragged the young teenage girl whimpering out of the grounds into their car and drove away.
There was nothing anybody could do.
Later before popsicle and bananainmebutt were taken away to join club car man and leaper gnome in custody, Kendra asked Lady Louvier who that young girl was and why had she been at the party.
Lady Louvier wiped her eyes with her handkerchief. "She is a nice girl whose parents I know well and she sometimes does a little bit of part-time work as a servant for me. She was helping with the serving of the refreshments today. The poor dear." She blew her nose.
"What's her name?" asked Kendra.
"She doesn't really like her name and would be upset if I told it to anyone," explained Her Ladyship. "But she is a big fan of the Electric Mayhem and prefers to be called Sgt. Floyd after her favourite band member."
The Detectives knew the villians had probably taken poor Sgt. Floyd as they had to call her to their secret hideout. Her rescue was imperatively required. But how to locate her?
Snowthy had an idea. "Maybe the dogs could lead us to Super by their sense of tracking smell combined."
Marty agreed. "That is an excellent idea, except Bunsen told us that the whistle would only put them to sleep, not break the spell on them. If we could cure them then they could help us. What shall we do?"
Kendra suggested, "Why don't we try a different muppet scientist this time? Dr. Phil Van Neuter from Muppets Tonight? Maybe he could do something quicker than Bunsen."
Marty and Snowthy said anything was certainly worth a try, so with the help of the police they muzzled all the sleeping dogs and after waking up Fozzie and Link with buckets of cold water they loaded them into the spare paddywagons and they called Dr.Phil who said he knew a guaranteed way of breaking Super's hold over the dogs. So they drove all the dogs to his Veterinarian's offices to see just what he had in mind.
All three Detectives were hoping desperately that he would be a genuine aid to their mission.
Loving the story so far! *still can't get over it* I'm a rich woman, wow.
I'm so very pleased you like the way I chose to depict you Sara.
I hope as many of the MC members who have starring roles in this fan fic as possible notice it in the end.
Well Sarah, I always did think your name was very rich-sounding...
Wow, this is a great story, and I can't wait to see what happens next! I'm a bit worried though.
My most vivid picture of Phill is of him dancing around singing "cooperation makes it happen!" Ever read Muppetwriter's F4 story?
Personally I didn't read it Kate. But no need to worry. I know exactly what Dr.Phil is going to do, and I'm sure you'll find it funny in the end. But that must wait until I write the next chapter some other time.
When they arrived at the Veterinarian's building the Detectives left the police with the dogs and knocked at the door. It immediately opened all by itself with nobody there. The trio entered a small hallway past some very weird-looking animals in cages who snarled and hissed at them. They were calling out Dr.Phil's name as they went along till they came to a pair of push-through doors. "Do you suppose he is in here?" asked Snowthy.
"Well he has to be home. He knew we were coming." Marty replied. "Let's go," he added leading the way.
As the Detectives pushed through the doors they all had a big fright and fell into each other's arms as Dr.Phil himself suddenly jumped out of a box nearby.
"Hahaohoho. Scared you, didn't I? I am Dr.Phil, your friendly veterinarian surgeon and I'm here with another great..."
"Wait a minute Dr.Phil." Martin cried out urgently. "You're not on "Tales of the Vet" anymore. Remember?"
"Oh yes, that's true." Dr.Phil climbed out of the box rather sheepishly. "Sorry," he apologized. "Force of habit."
After calming down he directed the Detectives attention to a large metal machine with one end marked entrance and the other marked exit and explained that all they needed to do was push each dog into the entrance and they would emerge from the exit completely set free from Super's control. So they got the police to start bringing all the dogs in with their muzzles firmly fastened into place and each one was shoved inside Dr.Phil's invention one by one by officers Barry, Dave and even Link and Fozzie. And each one went inside defiantly growling inside the muzzle still fastened around their jaws, but once inside there was a strange sound, like a big growl and each dog came hurtling through the exit, minus the muzzle and yapping in utter panic. It was incredible. They were terrified but obviously in their own minds again.
The last dog to go was Barkeley. However when Link and Fozzie tried to get him in somehow Fozzie ended up being accidentally shoved inside ahead of Barkeley by Link.
"Yeeoowll!" he screamed loudly and Link felt very shocked as he realized what happened. The Detectives gasped in horror and Dr.Phil was aghast. What sort of effect would the machine have upon Fozzie?
There was the same sort of terrible growl and Fozzie yelled in panic and hurled himself out as Barkeley nearly trampled him trying to get out himself in panic. All the other dogs were calming down after their shock and Link cried, "Patrol Bear. What happened in there?"
Fozzie struggled to find his voice. "Something grabbed me and tried to pull my lips off while it was growling in my face. I thought I was going to be savagely mauled. It was dreadful."
As he collapsed in a chair while Kendra poured him a drink of water, Officers Dave and Barry demanded to know exactly what had happened.
"Okay," Dr.Phil sighed. "This isn't really a proper machine at all. My assistant Mulch is inside here and as each dog entered he would seize it with his strong hands tearing off the muzzle and growling loudly into its face to scare it so much that the trance would be broken. I'm so embarassed. I never was a terribly mechanically-gifted sort of scientist." He hung his head in shame. Then looking up brightly he said smilingly, "But, hey I said it would free them from Super's control and it certainly worked. Didn't it?"
Well everybody had to admit that it had. Even Barkeley was becoming his old bouncy, cheerful self again and when Marty, Snowthy and Kendra explained the situation the dogs all unanimously agreed to lead them and the police to Super's secret hideout. So they all said thank you to Dr.Phil Van Neuter and asked him to pass on their thanks to Mulch as well when he was out of the "machine" Phil promised he would and waved good bye from his front door, wishing them the best of luck.
This was it. The final showdown was approaching. They prayed that Super and Baba would not hurt that poor girl Sgt. Floyd. They simply had to find a way to rescue her.
Great story! I cant wait to see what happens to me...I think
And so the dogs prepared to track down the villians. They all sniffed very hard and then one by one they began to pick up the scent. Rowlf cried out, "This is it. Okay everybody. We're ready to take the authorities to where that madman had us taken and brainwashed. Follow all of us you guys. Here we go."
And with that Rowlf, Foo-Foo, Muppy, Baskerville, Rover Joe, Sprocket, Barkeley and all the rest of them raced off sniffing and yapping to each other. The police all followed behind in their cars while The Three Detectives pedalled on their pushbikes. The scent led them over hill after hill throughout the country until they saw the old abandoned house come into view.
Baskerville panted. "That's where we were taken to. The smell is unmistakable."
The police asked the Detectives what the next move would be. Snowthy said extreme care was needed in the situation.
"Yes," agreed Marty. "We certainly cannot knock on the front door and ask if they're home. We need a plan to get inside and snoop around."
"So let me at those dirty dog-nappers."
"Miss Piggy." cried all three Detectives at once.
"How did you get here?" asked Kendra.
"I was reading ahead into this story and made my way here earlier to wait for you all to arrive." Piggy explained. "When you come up with your plan I intend to be right beside you. I'll teach those dog-nappers to do what they did to my poor Foo-Foo. Here Foo-Foo. Come to mumsy."
Foo-Foo was so over-joyed to see his mistress again. He ran into her arms and was scooped up for a big snuggle. The Detectives smiled to each other and at everybody else. Piggy could certainly be an extremely valuable ally with her combat abilities. All they needed was to discuss and come up with the best sounding plan of action.
I love Piggy's description of how she got there! Great stuff Marty!
Still looking great Marty!
Glad you're all enjoying it. I'm going to have to sit down and work out the next bit on pen and paper before posting it. I just can't think of it off the top of my head. It's very complex.
But I'd just like to state one thing. Even though Super and Baba were kind of easy choices for the bad guys I am not in principle pointing the finger at them for the things they did on our forum. I think it's very sad that they hurt so many people and as a Christian I pray one day they repent and change their bad ways. I know the Bible says that I must not condemn anybody for I am also guilty of many little sins and faults of my own before God.
So I shall finish this story but I wish absolutely everybody who appears in it only the best well wishes.
Ahh, finally caught up. And I love it, Marty! It's really great, fun, suspenseful, and interesting. And you're an awesome writer! Looking forward to seeing where it goes from here as well!
Yes, indeed! So many unexpected twists, and it's not over yet! As a writer, I'd say you're getting better with each new thing you write, which is just wonderful!
After discussing several different ideas it was finally agreed upon by all that the Detectives and Miss Piggy should sneak through a window and spy around. When they located Super's secret laboratory one of them would creep back and lead the police to the villians. But Sgt Floyd's safety was top concern. If they were able to find where she was being held captive she needed to be set free so Super couldn't threaten her as a hostage.
So the police and all the dogs wished them the very best of luck as Marty, Snowthy, Kendra and Piggy crept up to the house moving quietly around the walls trying to find a window that wasn't securely latched. Naturally they also peeked furtively inside to make sure the coast was clear.
They were in luck. The second window on the eastern wall was open a crack and nobody was in sight. They all gently eased it open, cringing as it creaked and groaned. But fortunately neither Super nor Baba had overheard the noise. One by one they all climbed carefully inside and Marty suggested they split up in pairs.
"Snowthy and I will search upstairs while Kendra, you and Piggy search around down here."
Everybody thought it was a good idea and they went their separate ways.
Marty and Snowthy made their way quietly up the stairs and at the top they came to a long row of doors. They took turns listening at each door with a stethoscope for any sounds inside the rooms behind starting at the middle and moving to their left. When they came to the end they went back and started checking the ones to the right of the staircase. Snowthy whispered that he could hear muffled crying behind the fourth right-hand door and Marty peeped through the keyhole and saw poor Sgt Floyd tied and gagged in a chair. There was nobody else present and they tried the knob finding it locked. He got his handy little safety pin out of his pocket and professionally picked the lock and they opened the door.
The girl's eyes opened wide in fear but they quietly assured her that they were detectives and had come to save her. Snowthy used his pocket-knife to cut the bonds while Marty removed the gag.
When she was free she was crying with joy and whispered her heartfelt gratitude.
Marty told her to come with them. They would attempt to sneak her back downstairs and outside where the police would protect her. As they prepared to creep away thoughts raced through their minds. Would Super catch them in the act? And what was happening with Kendra and Piggy?
Can't wait for more.
This is really good so far. You are a great fan fic writer.
Goodness Marty there's no way I can possibly get caught up in all this in such a short time!
