-Yami Michael-

He began to storm off, back towards the party. Somewhere up ahead of him he smelled smoke.

Suddenly he ran into a man. The man hadn't been there before. Yami Michael bounced off the taller man and fell to his butt on the ground. "Grr... stay out of my way, insect!" He scowled.

"Hey."

Yami Michael looked up. The man was dressed like Primary Xerox, even to the point of dying his hair a bright green, but there were distinct facial features that set the two apart. For one thing, this man's face had wrinkles criss-crossing it, and his face looked more worn, as if it had been stretched and bent. A cigarette was sticking out of chapped lips, and cool green eyes stared down at him. But the most noticeable difference was a frayed, beat up old fedora parked just above his forehead.

"I'm really getting tired of people acting crazy around me today." Yami Michael scowled. "You have five seconds before I tazer you. Make it quick."

"So you're just gonna run away?"

"I'm fairly certain I have no idea what you're talking about."

"P'shaw, youngster. I saw what happened tonight. T'ain't my style to be this direct or t'a spell things out to kids, but if you're hunting a deer and you wound it, you don't just let it run off. A wounded animal's more dangerous than a healthy one. You get yer rear in there and you finish the job."

"I SAID I have no idea what you incessent babble is about!"

Jack regarded the kid quietly, then exhaled some smoke from his lungs. "Sure. But lemme ask you this. Sami stormed away from you too. So why'd you chase after Jennifer?"

Yami Michael paused. The man's question had cut him to the bone. His mind was jumbled and he wasn't sure how to feel or what to do.

Then, an imaginary inner cookie went flying at him. Imaginary Inner Jennifer glared at him. "What are you waiting for, you prick? Go after her!"

Yami Michael scrambled to his feet, and started running. Behind him, Jack tipped the brim of his hat. "Get going, hero-boy."

Yami Michael shouted back. "I'll have to kill you for that later!"

"Yeah yeah... we'll play Death Death Devastation or whatever it is you kids call it these days." He turned and walked down a hallway, pulling out a time machine. He was met by Sami a few feet down, who had been hiding and watching. "See kid? We pull out of the situation, observe what happens for a while, and then go back into the situation and fix things. It's standard procedure for EROS agents when things hit the fan."

With the press of a button, they both vanished.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Yami Michael, a few minutes later-

He saw Jennifer up ahead. Pulling out his cell phone, he accessed the teleporter function and selected a few options within the Teleporter menu... it would be tricky to teleport since M was in an alternate, dead universe, but he had upgraded the phone a bit since the LAST time he had ended up here... all he needed now was to grab her... He reached out and grabbed her shoulder.

"What are you doing?"

Yami Michael looked down into her eyes for a brief moment, a controlled blaze in his own. "I'm kidnapping you. Because that's one of the things bad guys do." He immediately hit the "Talk" button on his phone, and reality warped around them, before they vanished.

Jennifer appeared on a deserted tropical island, about a mile wide and a mile long. There were a few coconut trees and some growing foliage, as well as a few rocks, but otherwise absolutely nothing.

Yami Michael appeared about 40 feet away from her, sitting on a rock. He watched as Jennifer realized something, checking her pockets and containers. "Yes... you've probably figured it out now, but that PARTICULAR teleportation took anything you might be carrying off of you mid-jump. It's a function I designed for dealing with meddlesome heroes... as a sort of impetus for them not to bother me anymore, it sends all of their stuff scattered to the far corners of the globe. Makes more work for them, especially since there's no way of tracking it. You have nothing but the clothes on your back and this island is empty except for coconuts and plants, none of which are useful to you without thousands of them." He folded his arms. "That means your only way off in the immediate future is either by convincing me, or by going THROUGH me."

He stood up. "Something changed at the party tonight. You stopped acting like yourself, and started acting like someone else... I don't like that tone of voice, or that expression. They only make me angry. So we're going to sit here until we fix things." He added, as an afterthought. "Or until we kill each other. Your family, incidentally, doesn't know about this island. It's fairly unknown. And what with all the festivities... I'd say that no one will think to even start looking for you for about 16 hours." he shrugged. "You might be wondering why I even care. I don't, really. You just piss me off when you act weird like that. I prefer dealing with the insolent bratty girl that thinks she's even CLOSE to as smart as I am, rather than the one who just keeps trying to brush off anything that gets in her way."

"Regardless, I am your friend. I didn't want to be initially, and I'll never say it in front of others, but I am. And the second you changed was the second you saw that girl who was paying me to be her escort for the night. Why."

Jennifer scowls. Nothing in her pockets... no hyperspace pockets to access... no JEWELRY... How is she supposed to get anything done if she's stranded on a stupid desert island with a stupid boy who she was PRETTY sure said he was never speaking to her again?

Well, desert island, no supplies... perhaps she should double-check... She glares at Michael. "This is a stupid idea, and it's been tried before-" Wait a minute... "And why are you even talking to me? You said yo u wern't going to anymore..."

Gah, rewind... he just said stuff... "The girl at the party? Who was apparently not only your friend, but your date? I thought I *had* completely misjudged you- that you obviosly weren't someone I should be friends with, if you would p-pick-"

She stops talking, just glaring at Michael. "And now the only person I'm *really* friends with is mad at me and doesn't want to talk to me." She takes a deep breath. "So I'm trying to make it so you don't have to. Because apparently I'm not allowed to make perfectly logical assumptions from the data given. You know she all but said she was your girlfriend, right? She folds her arms. "Can I get back to work now?"


Archimedes follows the scent trails around the party. Jennifer, Michael, other girl... intersection here, Jennifer and other girl over here... He sniffles around. Break room... Michael, Jennifer- end of trail. Looks like Jennifer was building something, too...

Well, Michael must've kidnapped Jennifer. That was fine, then. Back to the party... "<Hey, Sparky! Sorry... Dad says I'm supposed to keep an eye on family sometimes. So, you were telling me about Mecha?>"

Jane looked at the teenage girl in front of her. Some part of her (her common sense, perhaps) said, Better just test this. For safety's sake.

"OK. Now then... I'm going to have to make sure that you're really my daughter," said Jane. "Let me see... hmmmmm... OK. What was the first word I taught you?"

Helen grinned. "'Infiltrate'! You've-- er, you will have told me that story about a dozen times by now."

Jane nodded. It seemed to make sense. "OK... have you set up some sort of method with future me, for if this were to happen?"

Helen thought for a second, then nodded. "Oh yeah! Hold on." She whispered something in Jane's ear.
Jane turned bright red. "When did I decide to tell you that?! That's not supposed to be--"

Helen whispered some more. Jane turned even brighter red still. "Uh-huh. I see."
She paused, reflecting on how awkward this was. "So... uh, what's your name?"

"Helen. Helen Gamma."

"So... what's your costume? I can't quite figure it out."

"Oh. It's a Queen Bee, Mom. I figured it would be appropriate, considering-- oh right. Let's just say... I'm well known at school in the future. So yeah... I thought this would be fun, and I can even sting people!"

That got Jane's attention. "...'Sting' people? How do you manage that?"

Helen grinned. "OK. Well, you see, I was idly working on a project involving reading nerve signals, and... well, anyway, I figured out how to mildly stimulate free nerve endings in your skin."

Jane nodded.

"So... well, to shorten an eight-long story, I figured out how to transmit it by touch, limited it to only go really lightly... and I embedded the device in my gloves."

Jane was smirking by now, as was Helen. JN raised one eyebrow, opening the palm of her hand.
"Oh? Show me."

Helen touched one finger into the center of Jane's palm. Jane pulled back with a muttered 'ow!'-- it had felt like a small pin had stuck her.
"Before I ended up here," Helen explained, "I had been having some fun with the boys... it's amazing what you can talk them into."
Her grin had turned evil. "I was figuring, later in the evening, I could go up to Kimberly..."
She noticed Jane's look of confusion.
"...er, she's my rival. Anyway, I could go up to her, 'apologize', and, as a gesture of friendship, take her by the hand..."


Jane looked at Helen Gamma. Her expression was opaque.
"Well... now I'm certain you're my daughter."

-Michael-

"Not talking to you? Well, I WAS... at least until stupid Future-Xerox or whoever that was stuck his nose in my affairs. Anyways... I've been mad at you before, and it's never stopped you from bothering me. I certainly don't want you to stop now. And Sami's crazy. Counting tonight I've met her twice... your family was watching me most of the time, right? You would know. Besides, she splashed me with punch and then ran off screaming. I'd date a Mad, but not a loon." He paused, and decided to use the argument crazy Future Xerox or whoever that was had used. "Look, just think about this: you BOTH stormed off. But I ran after YOU. Why would I do that?"

He tilted his head. "And letting you get back to work?" He smirked. "Didn't I say I was kidnapping you? What part of that statement made you think I was letting you go? You're the prisoner here... your only role is to shout "Save me! Save me" when someone comes to rescue you." He folded his arms and sat on his rock, body tensed to take action if she tried to rush him or anything.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-David-

He grinned. "Wow! This party is a lot more energetic than last years! I wonder where Andrew is?" He put his hands in the pockets of his Tesla coat and looked around... "Oh, hey... there's Chic. Maybe she'll know!" he walked up to her. "Excuse me, miss... have you seen a man in a red coat around here anywhere?"

David-aka Nikola Tesla-suddenly finds himself glomped by Chic, and a teenage girl in an odd costume.
Twin squees fill the air.
"Oh my god-"
"What a great costume!"
"Did you notice I was Tesla Girl? Did you?"
"I'd give you the prize right now if I could!"
David's faced a lot of fearsome things in his heroic career. But being tag teamed by fan girls...scary.
Chic giggles. "Yeah, David, Andrew's right here." She points at her cousin. Really, David should've guessed. The main difference is just the hair color.
That done, Chic turns to Tesla Girl.
"Okay, this is just weirding me out. DON'T tell me when you were born, or...anything like that, okay?"
"Um..okay, Mom."
"...that's just...I'm freaking out here, you know. Come on."
Chic drags mystery teen over to Jess and Xerox, who are also talking to a teen...and it looks like Jane is, too.
Oy vey.

"You came after me? I don't know why. I don't have enough data... never enough data..."

She sighed. She really should be taking notes. Pen... paper... she started scribbling. Stimulus, lack of stimulus, trigger, sanity... she wasn't really paying much attention to what she was writing. It would get written, that was the important thing. She kept watching Michael. "I don't know why you were even willing to be my friend in the first place. I just like being friends with you, I know."

She sat down on the sand, leaning against a large rock. "It's nice that you're talking to me, though. I appreciate it. And you know I probably could get off the island if I had to, right?" She smirked slightly, feeling a little bit better. Better? But she hadn't been feeling poorly to begin with... she thought... More notes- she could look at them later.

"Although I'm still rather surprised you didn't realize I'd have a problem with you dating- even in appearance only- someone who was such an airhead... If you ever DO find a girlfriend who can stand you for more than five minutes, she should be on MY intellectual level not yours..." She stuck her tongue out at him. "So when does the kidnapping thing end, anyway? Or am I actually supposed to kill you?"

With a screech, The Hunter fell out of the sky onto some car marked with a Russian name. Pfft. He stood up and grunted, stretching his arms out and checking his weapons. Damn his stupid brother, 'Be an antihero for my class one day, It'll be fun!' He growled, at least Herr wouldn't have to hear about this for a while. Ooh! A party! Fun! Well, this stupid antihero outfit would work just fine. Herr Gregory Hunter rolled down his sleeve over his tattoo and walked into the party...

-Herr-
He stepped back from a group that was madly entertained by his Chic impressions. Man, I hope that she doesn't - *Thunk* ... *BOOM!*

Herr stood up, alright, she has exploding clockwork crows...Great. He proceeded to bump into Greg, the two of them both yelling across the room in unison, "You stupid scalpel gunker!" The two of them stopped and looked each other, blinked in unison and then knocked each other out with perfectly timed right hooks.

Andrew chuckled, covering his mouth slightly and stepping up to David.
"Don't tell me all I have to do is change my hair and wear different glasses, now." he teased, tilting his head and crossing his arms. He chuckled as David reflexively blushed in embarrassment- lord, he was just too adorable.

"I do agree- it's a lovely costume, David. I went a tad more obscure- a historical figure I doubt you've heard of. And, incidentally, my direct ancestor." he doubted David had moved up to History lessons just yet- and, frankly, all the better. He boldly took his arm, steering him awy from the blast zone...

"Don't mind them... time travel. You know how it is. I always make a point of teaching Fredric good Time Travel Etiquette, myself. You know- don't mention names, dates, future developments... if at all convenient, don't approach family and so on." he said

Xerox raised an eyebrow at Chic, a little obviously ruffled.
"You too, huh."

Jen-Jen tentatively approaches Xxxy, still carrying Rose's costume. She isn't really sure- but- well... it is Halloween, and he might help...

"Primary? I don't suppose- well, I made Rose this costume, and she won't put it on, and she isn't even wearing a costume to begin with... Do you think- well, could you convince her to put it on, maybe? She really should wear a costume for the party..."


An anvil falls on Crash's toe. He yelps and I giggle, ducking the blasts from his shotgun. "Yew scwewy wabbit!" Hee hee hee! This is so much fun! Now, which dynamite should I use...


Charon wanders around the party. Mom just told him to be careful and not get lost, and to eat anyone who steps on him... He sees a strange yellow creature covered with black dots nom'ing a cookie.

Approaching cautiously- "Hrah?"

-Michael-

He paused and considered. She was actually starting to sound somewhat annoying again, which was good because it was more normal. For her anyway. But... He smirked.

"Granted, while having you at my mercy IS an appealing concept, I suppose I could be persuaded to take you back to the party sometime soon... but first, as long as I have your ear, I have a request."

He stood back up. "Before you leave, I want you to design something for me. You have a pen and a notepad, that should be all you need to produce a BASIC blueprint. I could probably design it myself, but you're really more specialized at this sort of thing, and it's much easier to just get a quality design from you and build it myself. That way I know it's good and I also know that it's still Mine."

He flipped open his phone and idly began playing Tetris while he let Jennifer wait a moment before going on. "I need a mind control device. Not just any mind control device, but one of the strongest and most intricate ones you've ever built. I need it to be hand-held or at least wearable, I need it to be able to affect only ONE person at most, and I need it to be strong enough to affect all 5 typical human senses. If I tell someone that there's a ball sitting on a table, I need them to be able to tell me what color it is, how big it is, if it feels rough or smooth to the touch, whether or not it jingles when they throw it, whether it smells like any particularly scent or not, and even if it has a taste, all even if it's not actually there. Sound like something you can do?"

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-David-

He raised his eyebrow. "Time travel etiquette? I suppose I should learn a bit about that myself... for some reason I've been thrown into so many alternate futures because of that stupid Toppings Machine... not to mention my brief stint in the past of various Alternate universes..." he rubbed his head, holding Andrew's hand. If this was a story, Andrew would probably have called his issues with time travel a running gag or something. "If he had time, I was thinking I'd ask Mr. Xerox to try and deal with the Toppings Machine sometimes... he seems to have a good hand with AIs, and if it'd respect anyone, it'd probably be him." he paused, thinking for a moment, then continued. "Incidentally, I think I'm going to need to ask for another picture of you and another one of Frederic for my room on the Quetzalcoatl... I found the ones I HAD in the corner of another room, covered with knife-stabs and strawberry ice-cream topping... I don't think that the Automatic Toppings Dispenser likes either of you very much... of course, then again, it's not very social in general. The only thing it hasn't tried to destroy once is that weird soda machine with the arms and legs that showed up in my shop and won't leave." he shuddered "That thing creeps me out too..."

He smiled at Andrew. "I really like your outfit... if that was what one of your ancestors looked like he must have been a very lucky man!"

Jennifer shrugged, then looked down at her notebook. She seemed to have stopped writing, and there were still some pages free. "I can do that, easy. Do I get off the island if I do?" Scribbling- something that small, better give it a superbattery for a power source... She scribbled the design for the superbattery. He probably didn't know it... "Voice-controlled?"

"No. I want it to carry out a pre-designed program."

She snorted. Simplicity itself... And here she thought something might actually be CHALLENGING... She amused herself by seeing how small she could make it. "If you want to be able to program it directly-without a secondary piece- it's gonna have to be a bit bigger." Hmmm... if he were to use it against her... Just at tiny hint of this 'flavor' would indicate it. Not that he would notice when building it... nor would anyone he tested it on...

"No, smaller is better- just one program hard-wired into it is fine."

"Gotcha." Directly into this part... going after all five senses was tedious, prone to error, required much more effort and power and was much harder to program. Now, just getting the person to know as true whatever it was- they'd fill in the details themselves, seeing, hearing, smelling, etc. everything properly. And they'd be much more resistant to being told they were wrong, on top of that... people were easy to mind-control, if you knew what you were doing... It was so nice when they would resist someone removing the mind-control... Well, it's not like Michael would be able to tell the difference, anyway. And if he wanted her to design something, she would design it *properly*- if it fulfilled the end conditions, he really couldn't complain...

She ripped out the pages that contained the blueprint. Pausing just before finishing it- "So, if I give this to you, do I get off the island? If you don't agree, you don't get the blueprint. And don't think you can take it- it's not going to make any sense to you at the moment." She didn't bother qualifying that. If he tried to steal the blueprint, he wouldn't be able to build the device anyway.

Cleese looked at the tiny walking portal, tilting a part of it;s self in such a manner as to evoke a head-tilt. He liked the party- there were cookies, and treats, and people, and he;d swum around in the punch! And now there was a little thingy! He picked up another cookie and held it out to Charon.

"Nom! nom nom." he said happily, bouncing up and down a little.

Xxxy beamed at Jen-Jen, ruffling her hair.
"Why of course, Jenny! You leave it t' me. Say, I noticed th' Young Sir 's here. You know him, right? Great kid." he said, taking teh costume and strolling off to find Rose. He snuck up on her, grinning eivilly.

"Howdy Rosey Dosey! Ah noticed yer missin' th; spirit 'a the show. But don't you worry none- ah fetched you a costume." he said cheerfully, watching her jump. hee!

Charon looked at the cookie curiously. Mom gave him cookies sometimes... "Hrah?" He took the cookie and swallowed it. "Hrah!"

Unfortunately, he didn't have any cookies to offer the other creature... "Hrah hrah hrah?"


Rose whirled. "Don't sneak up on me like that, Prim!" She saw the costume he was carrying... and his evil grin... "I am NOT wearing that @&#$ costume! I'm not wearing ANY #@& costume! I didn't even want to come to this #@$& party in the first place." She scowled at it. "Besides, I hate Looney Toons."


Jen-Jen blinked. Freddy was here? She should say hi... she liked Freddy. Besides, she didn't really know anyone else here... Oh, there he was, with posi-Freddy. She slipped through the crowd, over to where the two of them were standing. "Hi, Freddy. I like your costume..." She didn't recognize it, but it looked pretty cool. "How're you?"

There's plenty of drama and excitement tonight. Some people are having a rousing fight with their dopplegangers. Others are having an unexpected family reunion, with long lost Cthuloid beings, and possible future offspring. There's been at least one kidnapping.
And some are really living dangerously, and drinking punch with abandon.
Time for a little kareoke...
Rolf, in his 20's gangster outfit, strolls to the stage. Mithril Jack's ready for a short break anyway. He was told kareoke's a big part of any mad gathering when he was hired...
"Hokay, people. Dis vun's for Kid Atomic. But Hy think it vill appeal to a lot uff us. Rocket Ride, by Tom Smith."
(Couldn't find a music link, darn it! But doing it anyway :D )
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide,
Nothing worth doing that I haven't tried.
There ain't no living on planet-side,
Come on with me, baby, on a rocket ride.

How many cities crumble into dust
At the first atomic attack?
How many self-aware, wise, and just
Computers will we have to hack?

How many supercars will turn to rust
'Cause we don't have a spare or a jack?
Give me technology we can trust,
And give it fins like aCadillac.

I want a shining tower of glass and steel,
A rubber jumpsuit and a freeze-dried meal,
The will to survive, the need to explore,
The love of adventure, who could ask for more?

I want you, baby, right by my side,
Help me get out before my brain is fried.
The stars are waiting, so big and wide,
Come on with me, baby, on a rocket ride.
Come on with me, baby, on a rocket ride.

How many demons out in cyberspace
Will possess every hacker's will?
How many members of a master race
Will come closing in for the kill?

How many xenomorphs will change their face,
And then hunt us down for a thrill?
Give me a villain with style and grace,
And a little bit of fencing skill.

They used to be angular, sneering and bald,
If someone got killed even they were appalled,
They tried to marry the heroine, no thought of rape,
And they sure as hell knew how to wear a cape.

They never tortured, they never lied,
They'd honor a promise if it meant they died.
Let's find a villain with professional pride,
Come on with me, baby, on a rocket ride.
Come on with me, baby, on a rocket ride.

Terminators, Life Force, Robot Jox, Predators,
Lots of things that know how to flense,
Defenestrate 'em out the doors, gimme gimme Star Wars,
Bring back the Children of the Lens.

Puppet Master, Child's Play, Fright Night, Judgment Day,
Jason, Freddy, Michael, and Stripe,
Let Frankenstein, Ardeth Bey, and Kong chase them all away,
The Movie Snatchers' pods are overripe.

I want more than action and special effects,
To think about what might happen next,
A hero, not a weapons shop with pecs,
A heroine, not an excuse for sex.

I want a bubble helmet matting down my hair,
The ground giving way to the open air,
The joy and wonder as I head out there,
And I know I can have it, if I only dare.

How many bodybuilding macho jerks
Will blow everything full of holes?
How many imitation Captain Kirks
Will spill beer on the ship's controls?

How many stupid personality quirks
Will we see instead of souls?
Give me my baby and a ship that works,
And give us the starring roles.

I want to cruise the galaxy at FTL,
Pursuing Heaven and defying Hell,
I want to do everything that a man can do,
And I want to do it all out there with you. (Smiles at Claire)

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide,
Nothing worth doing that I haven't tried.
There ain't no living on planet-side,
Come on with me, baby, on a rocket ride.

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide,
Nothing worth doing that I haven't tried.
There ain't no living on planet-side,
Come on with me, baby, on a rocket ride.
Come on with me, baby, on a rocket ride.
Come on with me, baby, on a rocket ride.
Come on with me, baby, on a rocket ride.

Amazing enough, he gets through the song without falling into jaegerspeak.

The two identical Herr's stood up and glared a each other. Herr suddenly lept to the stage, leaving Greg in the crowd. A crowd that was about to become very confused...

The door opened again, and in trotted two unicorns, one red and one blue. Both were wearing domino masks.

"We're heeere, Jaaaaaaaane!" said the two in unison.

"Hello, everyone!" added the red one.

Then, the two walked into the crowd, occasionally sneaking up behind someone and squealing in their ears.

Chic shares a 'look' with Xerox, then turns to face her (ulp) daughter. "All right missy, for the party, you're Tesla Girl. Tell your...friends. Got it?"
"Okay, mom."
"......." Chic pauses. "That's just so weird. Anyway, I will remember to ground you later if I have to, so keep that in mind while you're here. Got it?"
"Sure thing, mom!" Marie grins. And grabs Sammie by her arm.
"Come on, McNinja, let's let the parental units alone for a little!" And the two scurry off before the three can stop them.
Chic exchanges glances with Xerox and Jess. "...eep. At least you two are hitched, and maybe planning on it someday. This is just..." Words fail her.
And then Rolf starts his kareoke.
Chic grits her teeth, as Kid Atomic grins. Okay, it's a song she likes, too. And eventually she'll have that rocket completed. But this is her party!
Well, she and Jane did invite everybody...rivals included. Still, that grin is just annoying.
The Kid is examining the buffet, when Chic arrives. "Yo. Nice party." He casually pokes a stack of pumpkins. "Pity you didn't have time to finish decorating..."
Chic lifts an eyebrow. "Pity you didn't have time to find a good costume. And what's wrong with pumpkins? It's traditional."
"True. Carving jack o' lanterns does take skill, after all." Kid Atomic smirks, just a little.
"Okay. Pick one." Chic's voice is deceptively sweet. "So will I."
The contest is on. Kid Atomic pulls out a lazer. Chic pulls out a clockwork chainsaw.
And she smiles. He doesn't know these pumpkins were provided by Katty Risk...

-Yami Michael-

"Hmm.... yes...." he looked over the blueprint. "This will do nicely. I have to thank you for this last bit of help, Jennifer. Heh heh heh." He grinned, sliding the mind control blueprint into his pocket. "Well, since I've got what I wanted and you're no MORE mad at me than usual, I suppose I can be nice enough to teleport you back." He closed his eyes and smirked. "You should really thank me, you know. If I wasn't so unquestionably benevolent you'd be stuck here for the next few days, probably!" He flipped open his cell phone and began inputting settings. Pressing the "Talk" button, both he and Jennifer vanished.

Only to reappear at the party, right in the middle of the Dance floor. Yami Michael looked up at her. "Oh yeah... there's not really anything I can do to get your stuff back. It was all scattered to the far corners of the earth. Sorry about that. Best of luck, let me know how it goes!" he smirked and started to walk off.

nMichael, appearing in a portal on the other side of the party, blinked as he saw Yami Michael. He looked down at his own costume "Um... with a Marik here, this is just awkward..." he slunk towards the men's bathroom. "I'll... I'll just... slip in here and change into my street clothes... it's not like I n-need a costume..." he couldn't stay for long... he would have to get back to his universe's Africa soon, to help with the Core Generator project. Energy issues were the primary way Lord Tinker maintained any sort of control on Africa, and since the whole continent was fairly low-tech, events in Africa were mostly beneath the notice. It was one of the few regions of the world that Lord Tinker didn't DIRECTLY control, although the African governments were more or less completely defendant on parts of his empire for a variety of amenities and would likely collapse without him. The Core Generator would be a significant push to change that.

Granted, he felt guilty about the several secret agents he'd had to execute to keep the whole project a secret, but as his Positive Alternate had told him, the only way he'd ever be able to accomplish any Good would be to do it through Evil means. It meant a heavy burden on his conscious, and he had been crying a lot about it, but it was... necessary...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-David-

He looked up at the music. "Hey! That Krokie thing again... do people do that a lot?" he was holding Andrew's hand, looking over at him. "Why don't you give it a try, Andrew? I bet you have a lovely singing voice..."

Jennifer sighs, slightly relieved to be back at the party. He certainly COULD have just kept her on the island... as far as her stuff, well... Her rubber ducky is at home, and nothing else was REALLY important. People won't 't be able to use her devices against her... although...

She slips back into M's breakroom. Oh, and her phone is gone, too... but that has a tracker in it, at least, just like the teleporter. Hmm... Drat, she's already used all the easily accessible materials, too... Back to the party- this is so irritating... and she still needs to get revenge on Michael for everything, but she'll think about that in a few minutes...

Tufty, as an evil squirrel, sits on the refreshment table eating a cookie... "Hey, do you think I can borrow Crash's phone for a minute?"

A few moments later, Crash runs by, firing his shotgun at a giggling Claire. As he passes Jennifer, he drops the cell phone in her pocket. Back to the break room AGAIN- she calls Burn.

"What? Crash? Can't this wait? And why are you calling me to begin with?"

"It's Jennifer. What are you doing?"

"That's classified. What? Ok, apparently it's not classified. I'm at the CIA Halloween party."

"That sounds boring. My phone and my teleporter are lost. Can you find them and get them back? Oh, and at some point can you look for a notebook for me? It should be the 'new-always-existed' grainy from maybe ten minutes ago."

"The 'I'm at a party' didn't register, did it?"

"Wouldn't it take you all of ten seconds? The notebook you can look for later."

Burn sighs. Jennifer's phone and teleporter appear in front of her. "I hope you're happy... Now people are giving me strange looks."

"What, you STILL haven't told them you're a-"

"ANYway, I'm going to go back to the party. Bye, Jennifer." Burn hangs up as Jennifer rolls her eyes. Burn's ridiculous.

Jennifer teleports the device she built back to her base. Now that THAT'S taken care of, she needs to come up with a way to get revenge on Michael... hmmm...

Freddy jumped, startled by Je- his enemy;s approach. He scowled slightly, and crossed his arms. It wasn't that she was unlikable... but she bothered him on some intrinsic level. It mostly had to do with how much time she spent with Micheal, and how *she* diddn't have an Evil Overlord dad making him distrust her a little, or responsibilities... and she fibbed, too. He couldn't abide fibbing.

"I'm sufficiently well." he said stiffly, noting the lack of comprehension on Fredric's face.

"Fredric, this is Jen-Jen. Jennifer's alternate." he explained, waving his boxing glove between them.

"...Who's Jennifaw?" asked Fredric, tilting his head. He sniffed the air a little, leaning closer.

"Oh! You smeww wike Mciheaw... but id must be Posi-Micheal. Dads funnay, I don't think Iw've met yow awetenate." he explained, taking her hand and shaking, politely.

Andrew blushed a little- he honestly seemed to never just spend time with David like this. It was really nice... he was so sweet.
"You think so? Well, perhaps I could manage a little tune. And my ancestor was.... yes, I think he really was very lucky. Otherwise I'm quite certain he would have died a few times over..." he said, considering the songs he could sing. Ah! He thought he had it.

"Wait here- I have he perfect thing for my costume, even." he said, leaning up to kiss him on the cheek and strolling over for a quiet chat with Mithril Jack. With a nod of approval, he took the stage. He swept the front of his hair back, and assumed the beatific sime he remembered from the portraits.

"I can dim the lights and sing you songs full of sad things
We can do the tango just for two
I can serenade and gently play on your heart strings
Be your valentino just for you
" his voice rang out, sweet and rich, and just a little... clever.

He was the very image of Tarvek as he strolled accross the stage, a snap of his fingers calling down a spotlight- a little warp made the air around him seem to glitter, the stage appropriately misty and warm. If you were going to do it, do it right~

"Ooh love - ooh loverboy
What're you doin' tonight, hey boy
Set my alarm, turn on my charm
That's because I'm a good old-fashioned lover boy

Ooh let me feel your heartbeat (Grow faster, faster)
Ooh ooh can you feel my love heat
Come on and sit on my hot-seat of love
And tell me how do you feel right after-all
I'd like for you and I to go romancing
Say the word - your wish is my command

Ooh love - ooh loverboy
What're you doin' tonight, hey boy
Write my letter
Feel much better
And use my fancy patter on the telephone


When I'm not with you
I think of you always
(I miss those long hot summer nights)
I miss you
When I'm not with you
Think of me always
Love you - love you

Hey boy where do you get it from
Hey boy where did you go ?
I learned my passion in the good old
Fashioned school of loverboys

Dining at the Ritz we'll meet at nine, precisely~
One two three four five six seven eight nine o' clock-
I will pay the bill, you taste the wine
Driving back in style, in my saloon will do quite nicely
Just take me back to yours that will be fine (Come on and get it)

Ooh love, (There he goes again just like a good old-fashioned lover boy)
Ooh loverboy
What're you doin' tonight, hey boy
Everything's all right
Just hold on tight
That's because I'm a good old-fashioned! fashioned lover boy!
" he bowed as the crowd cheered, and winked at David with a sly smile. He twirled the mic, feeling the flight and the rush of a well done piece of work... it was like flying, sometimes. And he was still flying as he walked back off the stage- maybe later he'd do an encore. He always was fond of Queen.

Jen-Jen smiles at Fredric, shaking his hand. "Hi. I'm surprised you haven't met my alternate... I'm sure she knows about you..." She looks around, then points. "She's the one over there, in the Daffy Duck costume looking vengeful." Freddy seems irritated with her... but he usually does. It's easier to just go with it- if she tries to do anything about it, he'll just get more annoyed. Besides, she doesn't have any problem being friendly, and even irritated he's nicer than Rose.

"I don't know if you'd like her, though, Fredric... She's not very nice." She looks back at Freddy, still smiling. "So what do you think of the party? I like your costume, by the way, even if I don't recognize it... I'm debating trying the punch. How much of a risk do you think it is?"



Charon considers. He doesn't have a cookie to give the other creature... and even if he got one, the creature already HAS cookies. Hmmm... What could he give...

"Hrah!" Teleporter Mom installed, over here. Charon grabs and swallows the wireless karaoke microphone, causing it to land in front of Cleese. A bunch of people seem to be sharing that, so it MUST be important! He teleports back, nudging the microphone toward Cleese. "Hrah?"

Fredric scratched the back of his head, frowning.
"She isn't? I'm suwe she wawms up to peowpew." he said confidently, putting his hands on his hips and grinning. How hard could it be? After all, he had befriended Micheal, and he was pretty prickly. His Da had always said you could befriend anyone, if you were clever enough...

Freddy smirked a little at his alternate- oh, that could be fun to watch. He knew his alternate pretty well... he considered a brawl the ultimate expression of friendship.
"I wouldn't if I were you- first of all, there two flavors of Narbon in the room if mah nose is any judge, an' Clee 'n Gilliam were swimmin' in there before ah caught 'em. Then again, Gilliam c'n suck poision outta stuff... he lahks th' flavor."

Cleese poked the microphone with a little blobby 'hand', blinking with curiosity. Wait... he knew what this was! He had seen Grandpappa making happy singy sngs with it just a minute ago! He could make singy songs... the nice lady at the Basket Food shop Daddy too him to had taught him one. He bounced up and down happily, managing with difficulty to carry the microphone up onto the stage, with Charon following him.

He hopped up and down, and managed to turn it on, taking a deep breath and beginning to sing.

"Shi shang zhi you mama hao
You ma de hai zi xiang ge bao.
Tou jin mama de huai bao
Xin fu xiang bu liao.

Shi shang zhi you mama hao
Mei ma de hai zi xiang ge cao
Li kai mama de huai bao
Xin fu na li zhao. nom!
"

(Translation:
Only Mama is the best in all the world
With a mama, you have the most valued treasure.
Jump into mama’s heart and
You have endless happiness.

Only Mama is the best in all the world
Without a mama you are like a piece of grass,
Away from mama's heart,
Where will you find happiness? nom!)

Jen-Jen sighs, a bit disappointed. "Ah, well. Do you know if any of the candies or cookies are safe to eat, at least?" She might try the punch anyway, just to see. It probably won't kill her, after all. "And Fredric..." She pauses, trying to think of the right words. "You're friends with Rose's alternate- Claire- right? ...I really don't think you'd like my alternate. Rose and I don't usually get along, you see." Hopefully that will help. Freddy's nice, and she knows Fredric's a Hero- he can't be that bad, and Jennifer doesn't make friends normally.


I run along, being chased by Crash. Anvils! Dynamite! More dynamite! Mallets! Even more dynamite! Whee! Oh, hey, Cleese is singing! Neat! And... on the stage with him... is that-

Crash slams into me as I stop running. "Claire! Can't you at least warn me when you're going to be distracted by something!?"

"Look at that! It's a walking portal thing, but it's little! Oh, and Cleese is a good singer. But look at the walking portal! I thought they all went away!"

"...what's a walking portal?"


Rose, over in another corner, glares at Xxxy. "I can't believe you somehow convinced me-" He's just smirking. She sweeps the tail of the Wile E. costume out of the way and sits back down. "Well, at any rate, I'm not chasing any Road Runners or anything stupid like that. And when are you doing your thing, anyway- you know, the one that's so important it got me to come to a Halloween party to make sure you don't screw up?" She folds her arms. As soon as he's done with that, she can leave and go back to her work... and he'd *better* do it, or she might have to try the 'locked broom cupboard' tactic.


Charon stares at Cleese, impressed. "Hrah..." He understood it- Mom included all the languages she could find when putting him back together- and he has to agree. He certainly loves his mom...


Jennifer sits in a corner, pretending to study what she's written in her notebook. She's really trying to think of a good way to get revenge on Michael for... well, for the entire evening so far. Unfortunately, she's failing. It's rather vexing. She just can't think of anything suitable, for some reason...

-David-

"Wow..." he blushed slightly as he watched Andrew on the stage. "He really does have a good singing voice... I wish I could sing. I don't even know how he comes up with the words like that. He was really amazing in so many ways.

Then, David sensed a presence behind him. "Whatever you're trying, it's not going to work."

He spun around, catching a balled up fist that had been flying towards him. Looking up, he confronted what appeared to be his exact double, dressed up as Werner Heisenberg. "Seriously. Just back off tonight. I really don't want to fight tonight."

nZobot grinned. "Aw, too bad. Because I'm entirely too bored with Andy not here yet, so-" he swung with his free hand, and...

...found himself flying towards a dessert table.

David had not only intercepted his blow, but used his forward-moving momentum to flip his alternate over his head and throw him behind him. nZobot, eyes wide in surprise, crashed into the dessert table and was subsequently soaked with punch from a spilled cauldron. "...not that I was really trying, but when the heck did my incompetent double learn how to fight?" He felt kinda funny, and looked down to notice he had significantly more curves than he had had previously. "Hm. I see... someone spiked the punch with mint. Unfortunate." He looked up to see David advancing on him.

David scowled at him. "Just stay out of my way tonight, ok? I just got back, I'm getting a chance to spend some time with Andrew for once, and I'm really not in the mood to fight."

nZobot stood up, a hand over his/her current proportions to keep them from moving too much. "You're almost halfway competent. That's a bit of a change from when you got impaled by a spear about a week ago." He... err, she narrowed a set of eyes. "So what's new?"

David turned. "In addition to what I've always been doing, I've had two years of experience I'm guessing you haven't. And after all that time spent fighting, I've actually learned a thing or two." He started walking back towards Andrew. "Look, just don't start anything, alright? You're not a challenge and I don't want to have to hurt you."

"Not a challenge?" nZobot snarled. "Don't misinterpret the situation. I was just fooling around. I'm still better than you."

David closed his eyes.

Hahahahaa... Isn't it horrifying... hahahaha... to find out that there's no one left that's better than you are?


He opened his eyes again, shaking his head. "Maybe. But we're not fighting tonight. Deal with it." He left nZobot to deal with his current gender issues and approached Andrew again. "Sorry about that. But that was really impressive! I didn't know you could sing like that..." He smiled and took Andrew's hand gently. "You keep surprising me, Andrew. I like that."

Greg and Herr scuffle on the floor, their curses travelling the room.

They roll up to the feet of Andrew and David.

Herr absentmindedly kicks Greg in the shins. "Andrew, this is my Errr, brother. Greg."

Gregg waves and wanders off, nursing a few wounds. Herr looks at David and back at Andrew, a warm smile accross his face. "Who's your friend?"

From the sidelines, someone gently chuckled at Nega David's plight- the currently female assassin, bodyguard, and all around psychotic whirled, only to be met with a familiar smirk. 'She' relaxed, and rolled her eyes, scowling a little.

"You think it's funny, do you?"

"I would be remiss if I denied taking a certain amusement from the experience, yes." Nega Tinker was dressed in plan, simple black, with a matching skullcap. For the occasion, he had even carefully grown a delicate sort of goatee just for the occasion. All things considered, it was a suspiciously appropriate costume.

"Oh, stop being so dramatic- this was bound to happen, dearheart. And i might have a bit of something to restore your (ahem) dignity."


Andrew blushed, and squeezed David's hand back happily.
"And you never cease to impress me, David. I never say this enough, but I... really admire you. You're the kind of Hero I almost stopped believing in, once." he told him, a little suprised at his own ability to verbalize these things. Clearly, he considered, he was getting bolder... maybe it was the costume? Hee...

"Oh! This is David, Herr. David Toboz. He's my Sweetheart." he said proudly, nodding to him politely.

"Herr was a big help during that whole, um, thing with the Dimensions... "

Jane looked at Helen.
Helen stared back.

Finally, Jane heaved a small sigh.

"You know what," she said, "Well... you're here. It's a party. We might as well make the best of it..."

Helen nodded, perking up a little.

"C'mon. You can tell me all about what's going on at your school right now,... oh, and we can have some fun."

Helen grinned as she linked arms with her mother, the two walking confidently through the crowds. The two talked casually, swapping tips and stories. And every so often, Jane would stop and turn to a passing Mad."

"Oh, it's you, Dr. Salagus!" she said on one of these occasions."Have you met Helen, my daughter from the future?"

And Helen smiled politely and extended her hand...

~~~~~

Over in the corner, the reporter had found her way over to Xxxy.
"Excuse me," she asked, camera-bot hovering over her shoulder, "might I ask you a few questions?"

Ariel walked cutely around the room, striking up conversations left and right.
She was beginning to understand certain aspects of Jane's psyche. Watching people's reactions as Ariel kept up the 'cute' act, and slowly devolved it to make it more and more 'creepy', felt pleasant to her. To paraphrase Jane, it felt 'fun'.
On average, the people she talked to usually tried to excuse themselves either when she did strange things with the pupils of her eyes, or when she let her mouth go slightly out of sync with her voice.

Ariel looked around the party. She had not talked to many people, and a great portion of the crowd did not know who she was.
An idea began to form. Perhaps she could use her cute appearance as the basis for a 'trick'?
Subsidiary ideas followed.

Soon, Ariel was talking cutely to another Mad, skipping the uncanniness for now. The Mad didn't notice several ice cubes hovering behind her, a fraction above her high collar.

Inside, Ariel produced an emotion similar to an evil grin. It was 'fun', being a trickster character like Jane.
And, she was coming up with so many ideas of what to do next.....

-David-

"Really?" He looked down at Herr. "Thank you for all your help. We couldn't have done it without you." He looked down. "Gosh, that was so long ago for me, and so recent for you. It's kinda weird to think about." Actually, he had decent idea of a place he could take Andrew for that dinner of theirs, assuming it existed in this universe as well. He wasn't sure he was going to tell anyone about the events at the very end of that event. His memory of the events after the final epic battle with Robin's forces was kinda fuzzy. "I'm not really sure... how... I got separated from everyone. But I'm glad to meet you, Herr, even if I didn't get the chance to see you much before." All he could remember was a bright light, and cutting something... He looked down at the bright green infinity symbol on the back of his right hand. He STILL wasn't sure what that thing was or what it did... although strange things had definately happened with it. He made a note to have someone who knew something about biology look at it sometime soon. He hadn't really had the time to have someone look at it most of the time during his journey, and to be honest, the last biologist who looked at it tried to lop off his hand. "Umm... Andrew, do you know if M has anyone who knows a lot about biology?"

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Michael-

He took a sip from a hip flash he'd brought with him. Like he'd ever trust any beverages served at this party. Or the food, for that matter, but drinks were much easier to deal with.

His cell phone was beeping... he reached down and flipped it open. "Ah... good... so all that money Sami promised me was just credited to my account. I'll never understand why she would pay to have me go out with her once... or why she ran off, but to be honest I don't even care anymore. That was just annoying."

Still, it had it's benefits. He had gotten a lot that he needed for the parts he needed. And things were finally going to be going his way soon...

Heh. Heh. Heh.

Also, that Ariel girl was ridiculously creepy... he made a note to keep his distance from her.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Thunderwoman-

She stared down at Ariel. "Query. What is your designated appellation? This unit has determined that such data is necessary for continued vocal and subvocal interaction to occur."

Chicgeek and Kid Atomic each have a pumpkin before them.
"Ready?"
"Let's do this, chica."
A 'whirrr' and an ominous 'hummm' are soon heard, and the jack o'lantern carving begins!
Chic's pumpkin is a slightly paler orange, leaves still bright green. It's soon sporting a jaegerish, fang filled countanance.
The Kid's gone classic. He fires up his lazer, and does a classic Frankenstein. His pumpkin is bright orange, brown leaves-fully mature. Which is why Chic didn't choose it...
The Katty Risk developed pumpkin blinks. The Kid doesn't notice-he's reaching inside the mouth to place a light inside.
And the jaws close with a snap!
Kid Atomic is soon employing some colorful language as he vainly tries to shake off the pumpkin nom'ing it's way up his arm. He ends up having to blast it into goo to free himself.
"Aw, too bad! Guess mine won-it's still in one piece." Chic smirks, and pulls out her heat ray. Grab the pumpkin innards, add something from a stoppered test tube, zap with heat ray-
The smell of freshly baked pumpkin pie soon fills that part of the room.
Chic calls out to a wascally wabbit racing past-"Hey, Claire! Bring us over some whipped cream from the buffet, and you can have a slice!"

Do you think I had the 1st idea what a squidhole was when I invented it? Certainly not! I was just messing about! That's when the very best & very Maddest Science gets done. I thought,Why, this alabaster octopus looks like it wants a nice transmission inside it,& fairly soon I had a thing that obviously had a Use, though what that Use could be was a total mystery.
(Sameness Engine) I haven't the 1st notion of what it's for! That's not why I made it-I made it for the sheer joy of making something new! It's getting up to tell me what it wants me to do, though, I can just feel it. It's been giggling a lot at night.
