    Wanna Sprite Cranberry?

    renderTimingPixel.png

    November 26th.

    2018.

    I was 41 years old relaxing on the couch sitting next to my Wife. We were watching a Hallmark Christmas movie. A commercial break begins and I see the same damn Sprite Cranberry Lebron James advertisement.

    “WANNA SPRITE CRANBERRY?” It says.

    Those words I have heard been blared through my television speaker system countless dozens of times this past week.

    Anyways, it gets fairly late, I decide to go to sleep. I go upstairs to brush my teeth; yet as I put the mouthwash in my mouth; it tastes less like a mint and more like a carbonated fruit flavor. I spit it out quickly after tasting it, it’s seemingly magenta colored now.

    “I just need sleep.” I think to myself.

    I walk to my bed soon afterwards which my dog is laying on. My wife comes to the bed too. My dog often wets the bed, he’s very old and has many gum infections and poor sense of sight and hearing. He often pisses whenever he’s sleeping which is just expected at this point; my Wife and I are both used to the smell.

    When we woke up this morning however; the sheets and room didn’t smell like dog piss; it smelled as fruit and sugar. When the dog woke up, underneath him was a wet spot that was seemingly dark pink.

    This is not right.

    I immediately get myself out of bed with my dog and drive off to the veterinarian. The radio is playing a Los Angeles Lakers basketball game; the announcers keep talking about LeBron James. I attempt to change the channel but it just goes to the same Lakers game. I change to another station; no avail. Seemingly all of the radio stations are the same damn Lakers game. A commercial break plays as it is now halftime.

    “It’s the thirst, thirstiest time of year!”

    I veer off the road.

    This fucking advertisement has been terrorizing me.

    “You want a Sprite Cranberry? LeBron James says.”

    I turn off the radio, go back onto the road and drive to the veterinarian where all of the employees are drinking Sprite Cranberries. I get the hell out of there as soon as I fill out the paperwork and drop off my dog. I drive home trying to keep myself sane.

    As I walk through the front door, I see my wife screaming in sheer horror in the kitchen. I run over to her asking her “what’s wrong?” and trying to comfort her. She points towards the refrigerator. I open it up.

    All of our food and drinks have turned into Sprite Cranberries. A massive sense of horror rushes towards me. I need to vomit.

    I ran to the toilet to regurgitate out of sheer disgust and horror. I pull up the toilet lid-

    It’s not water in the toilet.

    It’s Sprite Cranberry.

    While in the bathroom in a sense of confusion and chaos; all of the cell phones, computers, and televisions in the house turn on to the Los Angeles Lakers basketball game that LeBron James is playing in. There is a commercial playing.

    My wife begins to bawl in the kitchen. I’m scared shitless in the bathroom. Loud knocking ensues on our front door. Adrenaline rushes through me as I sprint downstairs to my shotgun cabinet.

    The basement is flooded-

    But not with water.

    I swim through the carbonated, magenta, sugary, fruity liquid to my shotgun cabinet. I attempt to open up my shotgun cabinet with the normal passcode, 85. I try it; it doesn’t work. I panic and keep trying 85 with no avail. That’s what I set my shotgun cabinet passcode to be, for sure!

    My wife starts to scream in physical agony upstairs. I think to myself,

    “L-LeBron James jersey number… ...23…”

    I try 23. It opens up. I get my shotgun and swim out upstairs. The door has been busted down. I see my wife on the floor yelling for help being pinned down by fucking LeBron James himself attempting to forcefully shove Sprite Cranberry down her throat.

    I aim.

    I shoot.

    Sprite Cranberry gushes all over from LeBron James’ body onto me, my Wife, the floors, the wall, the cabinets, and the ceiling. ll of a sudden the televisions, phones, and computers shut off, no longer playing the Lakers Basketball game, no longer playing the damn commercial. All of the food and drinks in the fridge return to normal. The veterinarian calls telling me that my dog is perfectly healthy.

    Never will I forget the day that I did not want a Sprite Cranberry.

  • There's a cryptid living in my apartment building

    I call him "The Man Who Yells Yeah" and for the past few months, maybe once every week or two, he'll go on yelling session where he just screams "YEEEEAAAHHH!!!!" at the top of his lungs. He usually appears (or I should say yells, because I've never actually seen him) in the mid-to-late afternoon, during or after when most people eat dinner, but on one occasion he decided to yeah at about 2pm.

    The yeahing goes on for as little as 2-3 minutes to as long as 4-5 hours, which was the first time he made himself known. I live in a middle-ish floor in my apartment building and so far I've worked out that he's definitely on my half of the building, but either on a higher floor, or perhaps coming from the roof.

    About an hour into first contact, I opened my window and stuck my head out to yell 'Shut the fuck up' at him, but he either didn't hear me or just chose to ignore it and continued. When he yeahs at his loudest, he also produces this sound kinda resembles the slapping of flesh, like if you were to smack your bare arm with modest force.

  • To yeet, or not to yeet


    renderTimingPixel.png

    To yeet, or not to yeet--that is the question:

    Whether 'tis danker in the mind to yeet

    The slings and arrows of dank fortune

    Or to yeet arms against a sea of troubles

    And by yeeting end them. To yeet, to yeet--

    No more--and by a sleep to say we yeet

    The heartache, and the thousand dank shocks

    That flesh yeets heir to. 'Tis a consummation

    Devoutly to yeet yeeted. To yeet, to yeet--

    To yeet--perchance to yeet: ay, there’s the rub,

    For in that sleep of death what dreams may yeet

    When we have yeeted off this dank coil,

    Must yeet us pause. There yeets the respect

    That yeets calamity of so dank life.

    For who would yeet the whips and scorns of time,

    Th' oppressor yeets wrong, the dank man's contumely

    The pangs of dank love, the law's delay,

    The insolence of office, and the spurns

    That dank merit of th' dank takes,

    When he himself might his quietus yeet

    With a dank bodkin? Who would fardels yeet,

    To yeet and yeet under a dank life,

    But that the dread of something after death,

    The dank country, from whose bourn

    No traveller yeets, yeets the will,

    And makes us rather yeet those ills we yeet

    Than yeet to others that we yeet not of?

    Thus conscience does yeet cowards of us all,

    And thus the dank hue of resolution

    Is yeeted o'er with the dank cast of thought,

    And enterprise of dank pitch and moment

    With this regard their currents yeet dank

    And yeet the name of action. -- Soft you now,

    The dank Ophelia! -- Nymph, in thy orisons

    Yeet all my sins yeeted.

  • Now to make one for each character I've RPed as.

    Giffany:

    Opens to a shot of the sign for the Mystery Shack's gift shop.

    Mabel Pines La, la, la, la, la! (She accidentally bumps into the screendoor, getting her braces caught in it; screams) Braces! Braces caught in the screen door! Someone dictate my will, I'm giving it all to Waddles!

    Soos Ramirez (Walks up holding a screwdriver) Say "ah," girl-dude.

    Mabel (Opens her mouth wide) Aaaah. (Soos pries her braces off of the screendoor) Soos! You saved me!

    Soos Heh, heh! Just doing my job, hambone. (Tosses screwdriver into his toolbelt) I'll see you dudes tomorrow.

    Soos opens the door and leaves.

    Dipper and Mabel Bye, Soos!

    Wendy Corduroy (Playing with a Chinese finger trap) Night, Soos.

    Stan Pines (Working on attraction called "Thigh-Clops") Night, Soos.

    Soos (Walking away from the shack, singing) Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo! Walking to my car.

    Mabel You ever wonder what Soos does when he's not here at the Mystery Shack?

    Dipper No.

    Wendy Not really.

    Stan Not once ever.

    Cut to a shot of the exterior of Abuelita's house at night.

    Soos (Playing a video game entitled "First Person Puncher") Punch! Punch those leopards! (Hears timer go off) Oh, highlights are done! (Sets down his controller, leans over and begins taking foil out of his grandmother's hair) You're gonna make all the other grandmas at the bingo hall so jealous!

    Abuelita Just a minute, m'ijo, look at this. (hands letter to Soos) Your cousin Reggie is having an engagement party next month.

    Soos (Looks at invitation) Wait, wait. Reggie is engaged? But he's like the poor man's Soos.

    Abuelita I do not want to pressure you, but you are a man now... in a way. It's time for you to start meeting girls. I would like to see you settled before I ascend to heaven and leave with the angels.

    Soos And with grandpa!

    Abuelita (Looking down) No, he is not there. (Looks back at Soos) Please find a girl to bring to Reggie's engagement, for Abuelita. (Gets up off the couch and walks away)

    Soos Heh! No problem. I'm great at fixing stuff, playing video games, having a sort-of mustache. (Leans back in couch) I could totally get a date in a week. Totally. Piece of cake.

    Game voice (Game over text appears on TV screen) You're dead!

    Soos I'm dead.

    Cut to theme song.

    A child is seen walking through the Mystery Shack gift shop, flipping a coin and licking a lollipop.

    Stan (Jumps out from behind rack of postcards) Hello!

    Child (Screams)

    Stan Please, don't let my horrible elderly face frighten you. (Reaches over to sheet and pulls it away to reveal Goldie) Don't you want to use that nickel to get a nugget from old Goldie?

    Child Uuuuhhh...

    Stan Watch this! (Inserts nickel into slot in Goldie)

    Goldie's arm moves up and his hat raises. The arm moves down, but both of his eyes fall out while grease and smoke come out and he starts to scream. Child runs away crying.

    Wendy Okay, seriously, Mr. Pines. It's time to throw that thing out. Its face reminds everybody of the inevitability of death.

    Stan What?! Sure, he's a little rusty around the edges, but old Goldie is a classic show-stopper, like me. Huh? (Hand slips on grease and lands in Goldie's mouth. Goldie holds onto his arm while he flails it around.) Aaaah! Kill it! KIIILLL IIIITTT!

    Cut to Soos hanging up a shirt in the gift shop.

    Soos (Turns head and notices a woman checking out a snowglobe) Ah! A hwoman! (Dives into the middle of a shirt rack) Alright, Soos. You can do this. Just use your mouth to say words that makes romance happen. (Slowly rises up out of shirt rack; to woman:) Your face is good. I'm a Soos!

    Woman (Screams, drops snowglobe and runs out of the gift shop, punching a man and knocking things over in he process)

    Soos slowly descends back into the shirt rack, disappointed.

    Dipper Soos? (Pulls shirts back to reveal Soos) What was that all about?

    Soos I-I think I was flirting, but I'm not sure.

    Mabel (Pops out of barrel of keychains) Did someone say flirting?!

    Soos Well, I kinda promised my grandma I'd get a date by the end of the week, but I've never actually been on a date before. (Grabs out-of-order sign off of vending machine) You belong on me, out-of-order sign. (Sighs)

    Mabel Finally, my prayers for a chance to match-make this summer have been answered!

    Stan Soos, a little advice. You need to get rich. Or lie about being rich. Outside of that, I don't like your chances.

    Wendy (Scoffs) Don't listen to Stan, dude. You're a sweet guy with a steady job and a pickup truck.

    Stan Would you date him?

    Wendy Oh! Would you... heh... look at that. (Raises magazine over face)

    Dipper Soos, you help us so much, it's time we help you, dude. We're gonna get you that date.

    Mabel We're taking you where romance lives and fashion styles die. (Cut to mall) To the mall!

    Stan (To Dipper and Mabel:) I'm gonna find a replacement for old Goldie. Babysit Soos while I'm gone.

    Mabel (Scanning the mall) Alright, Soos. Are you ready to explode the charm bomb on these poor, unsuspecting ladies?

    Soos (Sweating) Uuh. But what if I embarrass myself again?

    Mabel Eh. You can't be any worse at this than Dipper.

    Dipper Yeah! ...Wait, what?

    Mabel (Blows whistle) And, flirt!

    Music beings playing. Cut to Mabel, Dipper and Soos hiding behind a tree in the mall. They are watching a woman.

    Mabel (Points to her eyes) Eye contact!

    Soos (Walks up to the woman) Hey there! I'm not scared of your eyes at all! I'm gonna (Uses his fingers to open his eyes wider) look at them!

    The woman runs away screaming.

    Soos Eye contact!

    Cut to Mabel and Soos in a different area of the mall.

    Mabel Conversation!

    Soos approaches a woman who is eating ham on a stick.

    Soos Huh. You know, I've actually been in a pig's body. Did you know pigs have a hard time walking backwards?

    The woman backs away from Soos.

    Soos (Laughs) Not you, though! Not that I'm calling you a pig. Where are you going?

    Cut to Mabel wearing sunglasses in a new area.

    Mabel (Lifting her sunglasses, revealing another pair underneath) Confidence.

    Cut to Soos and another person outside of an Edgy On Purpose store.

    Soos So, you're probably a girl, right? Wrong? No, I was right the first time. Wrong?

    The music ends. Cut to Stan putting Goldie into a dumpster.

    Stan (Singing:) Tossing away garbage, in the garbage can. Phew! (Sees Goldie's face) Ah, don't look at me like that. This is how it's gotta be.

    Goldie leaks oil from its eye.

    Stan Ugh! (Closes dumpster)

    Some children walk past, laughing.

    Stan What in the--? (He follows the children into a building)

    Scare chord as a cap-wearing beaver head mounted on wall is shown. Scare chord as a child eating pizza while playing Fight Fighters is shown. Scare chord as a machine with a sunglasses-wearing pizza dispensing tickets is shown.

    Stan What is this living nightmare? And why do kids love it so much?

    While Stan is talking, the camera pans over to a crowd of kids in front of a stage. On the stage are a band of animatronic animals. An animatronic badger walks forward.

    Will E. Badger (Strums guitar) Who wants to get baaadgered?!

    The children cheer. A man is now standing next to Stan.

    Gary Oh yeah, that's Will E. Badger. He opens for Hoo-Ha and the Jamboree.

    Will E. Badger (Dancing) Ooh, ah! Ooh, ah ah!

    Nicolas Will E. Badger! I love you, Will E.!

    Will E. Badger (Holding out a cap with money in it) Now give me your mon-aaaaay!

    The children put money into the cap.

    Mariah Take my money, take it all!

    Stan Hoooaah! (To Gary:) Sir, I would like to buy that badger.

    Gary (Laughs) You're in over your head, gramps. Animatronics is a young man's game. (Tweaks his earring) You couldn't handle the hardcore life of a pizza-robot manager. Huh! Haha, flinched!

    A child is heard vomiting off-screen.

    Gary Hey, you, barfin' in the ball pit! (Walking toward the vomiting child) Gary's on the case.

    Stan I'm gonna get that badger.

    Cut to Dipper, Soos and Mabel outside of a video game store in the mall.

    Mabel (Pulls something out of a toy capsule machine) Don't worry, Soos. You'll find the right girl. You just need to stick (Pulls a sticky hand toy out of her capsule) with it! (Sticks the hand to Soos's face) Haha!

    Soos (Sighs) Could this day get any worse? (Turns head and sees a man who looks similar to him and a woman walking by) Oh no! Cousin Reggie!

    Reggie Feel it, it's muscle.

    Reggie's fiancée feels his arm and giggles.

    Soos He can't see me like this! I gotta hide! (Runs into the video game store and sits down in front of some shelves of games) This is it, Soos. A lifetime of loneliness. (Pulls out two games) You're the only ones who could love me. (Reading the game titles:) "Fighty Hogg," "Dr. Punch Head MD." (Notices a game in the box in front of him and picks it up) Huh. Never seen that one before. (Reading the game box:) "Virtually improve your dating skills. Nine out of ten basement dwellers recommend." This is perfect!

    Dipper and Mabel walk in.

    Dipper Well, I guess you are better at games than at flirting.

    Mabel Anything to get you out there, Soos.

    Store clerk I'm not sure you want to buy that game, sir. This is the third time someone's brought it back, and there's a note on it that says "destroy at all costs."

    Soos (Talking to a cardboard cutout of a woman on a game advertisement:) So, hey there. What's your deal? Like to--? (The cutout falls over) Oh, she's dead!

    Mabel (To clerk:) We'll take our chances.

    Cut to Soos's house. Soos walk into his room and places his new game into his computer's CD tray. A "Year 2000 Electronics" logo appears on the monitor.

    Soos Man, I can't wait for the year two-thousand.

    The monitor shows the main menu for "Romance Academy 7." the options are "Start," "Quit," and "Shizenhakka" (romanized Japanese meaning "spontaneous combustion").

    Soos Ehh, start! (Reading the game's introduction text:) "When the cherry petals of magic romance academy are in bloom... anthyding can hadplen." That is so true.

    The game screen changes to one with a classroom background and some stats on the left. A pink-haired girl appears.

    .GIFfany Oh, hi there! My name is .GIFfany. I'm a schoolgirl at School University. Will you help me carry my books?

    The game gives the options "Yes of course!", "I am impatient! Date me now!" and "Hey look a squid!"

    Soos I'm really feeling number two, here. (Clicks it) Click!

    The game plays a buzzer sound and the option turns red.

    Soos Ah! I messed up.

    .GIFfany That's okay. Try again!

    Soos clicks the first option. The game awards him 100 "Love Points" as coins and a cat falls in front of the screen.

    Soos Wow, I'm learning! And games are making it fun.

    .GIFfany What would you like to talk about?

    The options offered are "Your interests," "Samurais" and "Squids."

    Soos I'd rather just click your face. (Clicks her face)

    .GIFfany Ha ha. You are so funny.

    Soos Man, this game is amazing! I don't know why anyone abandoned it.

    .GIFfany And I'm sure you'll never abandon me, new boyfriend.

    Soos Boyfriend? Oh my, .GIFfany. It's almost like you're actually alive.

    .GIFfany Yes. Almost. (Laughs throughout the rest of the scene)

    Soos (Laughs) Oh, man. You have such a nice laugh.

    Pan to show that Soos's computer isn't plugged in.

    Cut to the Mystery Shack gift shop.

    Stan You don't understand, Wendy! This animatronic badger sings, it dances. It's the perfect money taking attraction. But he won't sell it to me!

    Wendy This is literally too dumb for me to care about.

    Dipper and Mabel walk in.

    Dipper Hey, have you guys seen Soos? We're supposed to help him with match-making today.

    Mabel Yeah! I wore my motivational sweater and everything thing! (Sweater reads "U can do it Soos". Points to the second o in Soos, which is misplaced) I messed up that part.

    Stan He didn't come in today. It's the first time he's missed work ever!

    The twins look at each other.

    Cut to Soos's house. Mabel and Dipper enter Soos' room. Soos is still at his computer.

    Soos (Laughs) So that's basically my entire life story. Now you tell me a thing about you!

    .GIFfany Every time you compliment me I get another highlight in my eyes!

    Soos Uh, you're pretty!

    .GIFfany's eyes sparkle.

    Soos And pixel-y!

    .GIFfany's eyes sparkle more.

    Soos And so agreeable!

    .GIFfany's eyes sparkle even more and stars, planets, hearts and cat faces appear in them.

    Soos Yes!

    Mabel Uh, Soos?

    Soos O-oh hey, dudes! Come in! This game is amazing. I'm making eye contact, going on dates, and I haven't seen any natural sunlight for thirteen hours!

    Dipper kicks away one of the soda cans on the floor.

    Mabel Soos, maybe it's time to apply these skills with real girls!

    Soos But I'm about to meet her parents! Her dad is an octopus-man.

    Mabel opens the blinds to let sunlight in.

    Soos Ah! (Hisses and cowers under desk)

    Dipper (Pulling Soos) We're going back to the mall, man. You need to unplug!

    Soos I'll see you later, .GIFfany. I'll be back, I swear!

    Mabel (Laughs) Soos, you don't have to wish it goodbye. It's just a game. It's not like it's going anywhere. (Closes door)

    .GIFfany Yes. It's not like I'm going anywhere.

    An arc of electricity moves from the computer and passes through a nearby toy, a digital clock and a power outlet before traveling through the power cables outside.

    Abuelita (Opens door) Hello? ...Time to read Soos's diary. (Begins reading diary)

    Cut to Gravity Malls, where Mabel is searching for women that Soos can date.

    Mabel Dang! Where all dem sweet honeys at? I'll check the ladies' bathroom. (Runs off-screen into bathroom) It's love time, girls! Get out there! No time to wash your hands!

    Women scream and run out of the bathroom.

    Woman Let's get out of here!

    Mabel It's time to date! Date! Date!

    Dipper And...here comes security. (To Soos:) I'll deal with this. Stay here and practice on some real girls.

    Soos hides behind a potted plant and looks for girls.

    Soos These girls have so many dimensions! And no explanation-ing menus!

    Bumps into a blond lady, knocking her purse to the ground.

    Lady Ahh! My purse!

    Soos

    Oh no! Undo! Undo!


    Lady (Darkly:) You can't undo who you are.

    Soos runs away and leans against a glass screen in front of several televisions.

    Soos Oh, man! This is the worst! I wish I was back home with-

    .GIFfany (Off-screen) Hi, Soos!

    .GIFfany is shown on a television screen, acting lovingly at Soos.

    Soos .GIFfany! Oh man, I'm so relieved to see you! Although, sorta confused.

    .GIFfany Oh, Soos. (Another .GIFfany appears) I am not an ordinary game. (Another .GIFfany) I am... (Points to toy dog on a shelf, making it bark) special.

    A screen shows people working on computers, who .GIFfany refers to as, "The Programmers."

    .GIFfany The programmers tried to delete me. (Screen shows various people working on computers, focusing on one in particular. An "X" appears on his computer and a word bubble reading "わかりません" ("wakarimasen"; "I don't understand"). He starts working harder and is about to delete the program but is shocked and dies) So I had to delete them.

    Soos Wha-what did you do to them?

    .GIFfany (Many .GIFfanys appear) That's not important. What's important is that you won't have to talk to real girls ever again. You and me can be together. (All screens make up one, huge .GIFfany. The large .GIFfany's voice sounds echoic.) Forever!

    Soos Wow, that's awesome! Sort of a red flag, but mostly awesome! So, what do you want to do now?

    .GIFfany Anything you want, Soos.

    Cut to Soos riding a kid's train. .GIFfany is on the train's screen, riding a virtual train.

    Soos (Laughs) Choo choo!

    .GIFfany (Laughs. Screen shuts down)

    Train Voice Please insert fifty cents to continue.

    Soos Aw, man.

    Melody (Laughs) Oh, sorry. (Walks up to Soos) Dude, that's awesome that you're a grown man riding a little train like that! You're totally like, owning it.

    Soos Huh? Oh, yeah. I'm like, if it's fun, uh, do it. You know?

    Melody Exactly! Being an adult is the worst. Skewering meat, remembering to pay bills, I just want to ride tiny trains all day.

    Soos At least you get to work at Meat Cute. Extreme lunch meats are the food of the future.

    Melody I feel the same way. I'm Melody by the way.

    Soos Oh, I'm Soos. I tell you, if you like robots for kids, you should check out the best restaurant of all time!

    Melody You mean...

    Soos and Melody Hoo-Ha Owl's Pizzamatronic Jamboree!

    Melody (Starts nervously playing with her hair) What? You've heard of Hoo Ha Owl's? I loved that place when I was a kid!

    Soos Oh yeah, dude. There's one right in this mall! I should show you some time.

    Melody I'm free around eight.

    Soos Boom! Done.

    Melody Perfect. I'll see you then. (Hands Soos some coins. Waves and walks away)

    Soos (Waves back) What a nice lady. Well, back to riding this tiny train for children.

    Mabel appears, diving into Soos while yelling. Dipper is also there.

    Mabel (Makes excited noises while playfully hitting Soos) Soos! (Continues noises and hitting)

    Dipper We saw the whole thing, Soos. That was amazing! You talked to a real girl, and you got a date!

    Soos I did?

    Mabel (Yells excitedly:) This is the best day of my life! (Jumps and dances around in the background as Dipper speaks)

    Dipper You were in the zone, you made eye contact - it was like you'd done this a million times before. Don't you see? That game really worked!

    Mabel You don't need it anymore; you can toss it out!

    Soos Toss it? But, I like .GIFfany. She's good to me. She's predictable.

    Dipper Soos, can a computer game go to Reggie's engagement party with you?

    Soos Uh...

    Cut to Soos's room

    Soos Hey, .GIFfany? We, uh-- We gotta talk.

    .GIFfany Of course. I am programmed to find everything you say interesting.

    Soos Well, have you ever had to choose between two things you like, but you don't know which one is right for you? I mean, I'm just thinkin' long term... Maybe I should be someone a little less (Mimicking a game character) "beep boop." Heh, you know?

    .GIFfany I don't think you know what you're saying, Soos. No one loves you more than me. The girls out there will just make fun of you!

    Soos You- you really think so?

    .GIFfany (Angrily:) I know so! Besides, we had a deal. You bought my game, you held my books, you're my boyfriend. Now sit down in that chair!

    Soos I don't think I like the way you're acting...

    .GIFfany (Banging on the computer screen) I WON'T LET ANOTHER GIRL TAKE YOU AWAY FROM ME, SOOS! YOU HEAR ME?!

    Soos .GIFfany, calm down!

    .GIFfany YOU'RE MINE, SOOS!

    Soos Well, uh, uh... (Picks up his game controller) Pause! (Presses a button)

    .GIFfany DO YOU HEAR ME? MIII- (Is paused)

    Soos (Looks around) Woah, that got intense. I'm sorry, .GIFfany. (Removes the game disc from the computer as some electricity moves from the disc tray to .GIFfany on the screen) Maybe having a cursed robo-girlfriend wan't a good idea. (Turns the computer off and puts the disc in his pocket) I'm taking you back to the video game store after my date with Melody.

    Soos leaves the room. Focus is on the computer screen as it flashes and slightly distorted images of .GIFfany appear. The view fades into a bright flash of electricity.

    Cut to Mystery Shack. Stan opens up a briefcase of his equipment.

    Stan Hello, old friends. (Puts on gloves) I've gotta be careful this time. No more Colombian nights. (Closes briefcase, revealing Wendy at the door)

    Wendy Alright, Stan. This is weird even for you. Do you need to talk?

    Stan Nothing you can say will change my mind, Wendy. Sometimes, a man has to steal an animatronic badger, to stay in this crazy game called life. (Unlocks window)

    Wendy Or... you could just not care.

    Stan (Opens window) It's about the principle. No one tells Stan Pines he's out of the game. No one tells- whoa! (Falls out window)

    Wendy I'll get your orthopedic back pillow.

    Stan (Off-screen) Thank you.

    Cut to Gravity Malls

    Mabel You can do this, Soos! (Dipper gives him water) Just remember what your love crew taught you. How does she look?

    Soos Nice!

    Mabel What are her stories?

    Soos Interesting!

    Mabel And who's going to pay for dinner?

    Soos SOOS IS!

    Dipper Now, DATE! (Blows air horn)

    Soos (Runs off, yelling)

    Mabel They grow up so fast.

    Cut to Hoo Ha Owl's entrance.

    Melody (Rubbing her leg with the other) Itchy legs, itchy legs-- Oh, hi Soos!

    Soos Melody! Are you ready for a (Looks at hand) date with (Looks at other hand) me?

    Melody (Laughs) I totally am.

    Cut to Stan using a credit card to open the back door to Hoo Ha Owl's.

    Gary (Pushes Will E. Badger) Good show man! Way to warm 'em up! I wish I was more like you. (Kisses Will E. and walks off)

    Stan (Squints)

    Cut to inside Hoo Ha Owl's. Melody and Soos are at a table.

    Melody Man, I could go for some complimentary breadsticks right now.

    Soos (Laughs) Uh, one time I was so hungry, I ate the decorational bamboo at a Chinese restaurant. (Sings) Like a big old panda!

    Melody (Laughs) You're hilarious.

    Soos (Laughs) Yeah, well, you know, I just sorta say whatever pops into my, uh... (Looks at video game behind Melody, and .GIFfany is on the screen)

    .GIFfany (Makes subtitles appear, reading, "You paused me?")

    Soos (Spits out water onto Melody and coughs)

    Melody Soos, are you okay?

    Soos No! I'm, uh, fine! Everything's fine.

    Melody You sure? You're spitting an awful lot.

    .GIFfany (On three screens makes subtitles appear reading, "You left me for her?" followed by an ex-ed out image of Melody's face)

    Soos (Sweating) Uh, can you sit tight? I have to go to the bathroom for a long time. Not in a weird way. (Runs off too Dipper and Mabel, who are hiding behind a pizza box)

    Mabel Soos, what are you doing out there?

    Soos I've got a big problem, guys. I'm being stalked by .GIFfany!

    Dipper and Mabel .GIFfany?

    Soos Or maybe it's pronouced, "Jiffany?" I was never really sure.

    Dipper Soos, get a grip on yourself. .GIFfany can't stalk you because she's not real!

    .GIFfany has a very close close-up on the three screens. From the screen's inside, it shows that Soos is the target, and Dipper and Mabel are the little enemies.

    Mabel Uh-oh.

    Dipper Take it from someone who brought an arcade game to life, this will not end well.

    Soos Don't worry. I'm pretty sure she's stuck on TV screens.

    .GIFfany is seen traveling across game screens and stops at "Fight Fighters."

    Rumble McSkirmish Ha! A new challenger approaches! Prepare to be- dah!!! (Gets shocked by .GIFfany, whose lightning reaches the stage)

    Soos Oh, boy. (Runs up to Melody) So hey, anyway, you uh, wanna move this date far away into the forest away from all electronics and people?

    Melody What? But the floor show's about to start.

    Soos Uh!

    The five mascots of Hoo Ha Owl's are shown playing instruments.

    Big Beaver (Laughs)

    Hoo-Ha Hoo! Hoo! Hoo! Who wants to hear Hoo Ha the Owl? Oh! Who...? (Shuts down)

    Lights center on the beaver cheerleader, who is possessed by .GIFfany.

    .GIFfany Hello, friends. Hoo Ha the owl is dead. (Lights go out. Cowboy frog plays quietly) This next song goes out to my forever boyfriend, Soos.

    Melody Soos, what's going on?

    Soos No time to explain! We gotta get out of here! (Drags Melody to the door. Dipper and Mabel run with them)

    .GIFfany The only way out, Soos, is in my arms! (Eyes turn red. Snaps fingers, and takes possession of the other animatronics; To animatronics:) After them!

    People run out of the restaurant, screaming.

    Cut to Stan, who is tying up Will E. Badger.

    Stan

    Done. Out with the old, in with the new. I feel invincible!


    Will E. Badger (Powers on, having become possessed as well, and begins punching Stan in the face)

    Stan Wha- what the?

    Will E. Badger Who wants to get badgered?

    Stan (Screams)

    Cut back to restaurant, where everyone continues to run out except for Dipper, Mabel, Soos, and Melody, who are all trapped.

    .GIFfany I'm sorry, Soos, but you can't run away from our relationship! (Takes control of skee-ball games, making them shoot out balls)

    Soos (Pulls down an arcade game for cover) So, about all this, I may have purchased a dating simulator that obtained sentience and went crazy.

    .GIFfany Oh, I am crazy. Crazy for you, Soos. (Shoots lightning at the gang)

    Melody (Hair catches fire and she starts screaming as the small flame burns)

    Soos (Quickly pats fire out) Oh no! I'm so sorry, Melody! I'll fix this. It's me she wants. I'll distract her while Dipper and Mabel keep you safe! It's the only way!

    Melody Soos, these are children.

    Soos The only WAYYYY! (Runs towards the kitchen, still being attacked by the skee-ball machines) Over here, .GIFfany!

    .GIFfany Stop!

    Soos uses a serving plate top slide under the attacking animatronics and under the flip-open kitchen door. .GIFfany uses her lightning to open the door.

    Dipper On three we split. One, two--

    Big Beaver karate chops the game in half. The three run off.

    Cut to Stan, who is being punched out of the door by Will E. Badger.

    Stan Stay back, you monster! (Gets punched into the dumpster. Willie gets ready for the final punch, but Stan ducks and it hits Old Goldie, who bites his hand) Yes, yes, get 'em Goldie, get 'em!

    Mabel (Screaming, she runs to the playground and up the slide. After a moment she comes back down and takes her shoes off and puts them in the shoe holder.)

    Big Beaver I'm gonna eat your face like pizza!

    Dipper screams and ducks. Big beaver hits a win button and recieves a lot of tickets. He claps. Melody then knocks him out with a chair, but is attacked by more animatronics. She screams.

    .GIFfany (Surrounding Soos) I've got you surrounded, Soos. There's no way out!

    Soos Please, let my friends go, I'll do anything, I promise!

    .GIFfany I seem to remember someone who promised to be my boyfriend. Think about it. (Shows on TV screen, and pictures of girls flow behind her) Real girls are unpredictable. They judge you.

    Girls (Laugh)

    .GIFfany Do you really think that Melody will take you back after this awful date? (Screen shows Melody giving Soos back his flowers to her and slams the door. It starts to rain. Cut back to .GIFfany) I can download your brain into the game, with me, and we'll be together, forever. (Points her at Soos, and it turns into an extending flash drive)

    Soos (Blocks belly button with his vest) Ah! Stay back! (Throws screwdriver)

    .GIFfany Come on, Soos. Don't make me delete you too.

    Soos pulls out the "Romance Academy 7" disc from his pocket.

    .GIFfany What do you say?

    Soos I say, game over, .GIFfany! (Opens oven)

    .GIFfany No! Wait!

    Soos throws the disc in the oven. It distorts and crinkles, .GIFfany screams and is erased from existence. The face of the specific animatronic she possessed melts, and the animatronic shuts down. The other animatronics shut down as well.

    Cut outside, where Will E. Badger also shuts down and falls to the ground. Stan picks up Goldie.

    Stan You did it! You old beautiful monster. You did it! (Hugs Goldie) How's about you and me hit the town? These old-has-beens' are going to Vegas!

    Cut to the wrecked Hoo-Ha's place. Soos and Melody sit upon the destruction.

    Soos (Sighs) I'm sorry for all of this. I honestly remember this place being a lot more fun when I was a kid.

    Melody Believe it or not but I've been on worse dates.

    Soos Really?

    Melody Never date a magician.

    Soos (Makes disgusted noise) Why would I? (Melody jokingly hits him and they both laugh) Oh! Hey you aren't maybe interested in going to my cousin's engagement party in a week? I promise there's like zero robot badgers.

    Melody (Chuckles) Yeah. I'll still be in town then.

    Soos "Still be in town?"

    Melody I'm going back home to Portland in a few weeks. But we can video chat, if that's okay with you?

    Soos A relationship with a girl that I can only see through my computer...sounds perfect!

    Over at the ball pit, Dipper and Mabel are hanging out watching Soos and Melody converse.

    Mabel (Raises her arms high, cheers:) Spirit of love, we did it!

    Abuelita (Pops up out of ball pit) Yes. Yes, I am so happy.

    Dipper Have you been following us all day?

    Abuelita Soos' life is my soap opera. (Smiles)

    cera-the-land-before-time-x-the-great-longneck-migration-5.76.jpg

    Narrator: Once upon this same earth, beneath this same sun, long before you... before the ape and the elephant as well... before the wolf, the bison, the whale... before the mammoth and the mastodon... in the time of the dinosaurs.

    Triceratops: Come on!

    Narrator: Dinosaurs were of two kinds-- Some had flat teeth and ate the leaves of trees. Some had sharp teeth for eating meat. They preyed upon the leaf-eaters. Then, leaves began to die. The mighty beasts, who appeared to rule earth, were ruled, in truth, by the leaf. Desperate for food, some dinosaur herds struck out toward the west, searching for their Great Valley, a land still lush and green. lt was a journey toward life. lt was a march of many dangers. Sharpteeth stalked the herds, waiting to seize any who strayed. The leaf-eaters stopped only to hatch their young.

    Ha.

    Aah.

    Ha ha ha!

    Ha ha ha. Mama.

    Hmm.

    Mmm. [Giggling]

    Mmm.

    Mmm. [Giggling]

    [Grrr]

    [Grrr]

    Aah!

    Ha ha ha.

    [Grrr]

    Narrator: Some of the young seemed born without fear.

    [Thunder]

    Baby Cera: Aah!

    Narrator: Yet...

    [Arrr]

    Narrator: (cont.) even hatching could be dangerous. One herd had only a single baby; their last hope for the future.

    Baby Littlefoot: (giggling)

    Narrator: And they called him... Littlefoot.

    Littlefoot's Mother: Here l am.

    Aw.

    Ha ha ha.

    Littlefoot's Mother: Don't be frightened. Come out.

    [Chattering]

    Mmm.

    Ha ha ha.

    Narrator: All that remained of his herd was his mother, grandmother, and his grandfather. He knew them by sight, by scent, and by their love. He knew they would be together always.

    Littlefoot's Mother: Now, you be careful, my Littlefoot.

    Ahh.

    Heh heh heh.

    Aah.

    Littlefoot's Mother: Beautiful Littlefoot.

    Littlefoot: Mother, is this all there is to eat?

    Littlefoot's Mother: l'm sorry, my dear. The land has been changing. That is why we must walk as far as we can each day, until we reach the Great Valley. Littlefoot, quickly, come here. Look, up there. A tree star. It is very special.

    Littlefoot: [Giggling] A tree star. lt is very special.

    Littlefoot's Mother: lt'll help you grow strong.

    Littlefoot: Where we are going? There are so many of these leaves.

    Littlefoot's Mother: Come along.

    Littlefoot: (laughs)

    Littlefoot's Mother: The valley is filled with green food, more than you could ever eat and more cool water than you could ever drink. It's a wonderful, beautiful place, where we'll live happily with many more of our own kind.

    Littlefoot: When will we arrive?

    Littlefoot's Mother: The bright circle must pass over many times. We must follow it to where it touches the ground.

    Littlefoot: Have you ever seen the Great Valley?

    Littlefoot's Mother: No.

    Littlefoot: Well, how do you know it's really there?

    Littlefoot's Mother: Some things you see with your eyes; others you see with your heart.

    Littlefoot: l don't understand, Mother.

    Littlefoot's Mother: You will, my son. You will.

    [Littlefoot: Giggling]

    Littlefoot's Mother: Littlefoot, don't you wander too far.

    Cera: Hey!

    Littlefoot: Ha ha ha!

    Cera: What are you laughing at?

    Oh!

    [Honk]

    [Grrr]

    [Grrr]

    [Grrr]

    Littlefoot's Mother: Littlefoot!

    Cera's Father: Come, Cera. Three-horns never play with long-necks.

    Cera: Pffft!

    Littlefoot's Mother: Littlefoot!

    Cera's Father: [Grrr]

    Cera: Three-horns never play with long-necks.

    Littlefoot: A long-neck? Hmm. Mother, what's a long-neck?

    Littlefoot's Mother: Why, that's what we are, dear.

    Littlefoot: Oh. Well, why can't l play with that three-horn? We were having fun.

    Littlefoot's Mother: We all keep to our own kind--The three-horns, the spike tails, the swimmers, the fliers. We never do anything together.

    Littlefoot: Why?

    Littlefoot's Mother: Well, because we're different. lt's always been that way.

    Littlefoot: Well, why?

    Littlefoot's Mother: Oh, don't worry so much. When we reach the Great Valley, there will be many long-necks for you to play with.

    Littlefoot: l wish we were there now.

    Littlefoot's Mother: lt's a long way-- Past the rock that looks like a long-neck, the mountains that burn. Still a long way, but we'll get there.

    [Ribbit]

    Littlefoot: Oh!

    [Ribbit]

    Littlefoot: Hey, hopper, come back!

    [Ribbit]

    Littlefoot: Hey.

    Cera: You again? Go away! That's my hopper.

    Littlefoot: l--l saw him first.

    Cera: Well, he's in my pond.

    [Ribbit]

    [Ribbit]

    [Ribbit]

    [Ribbit]

    [Ribbit]

    Cera: Ha ha ha!

    Ha ha ha!

    Littlefoot: Hey, this is fun.

    Cera: Ha ha ha!

    Ha ha ha!

    Cera: Ohh!

    Littlefoot: Ohh! Sharptooth!

    [Grrr]

    [Grrr]

    [Grrr]

    Littlefoot Go! This way!

    Mm-mmm.

    Littlefoot: Come back. You're going the wrong way! Aah!

    Whoa!

    Ohh!

    Mm-ohh!

    [Grrr]

    Littlefoot: Aah!

    [Grrr]

    Cera: Aah!

    [Grrr]

    [Grrr]

    Littlefoot: Mother?

    Littlefoot's Mother: Run! Look out!

    Littlefoot & Cera: Aah! Ohh! Oh!

    Cera: Help!

    [Grrr]

    Littlefoot: Mother!

    [Grrr]

    Littlefoot & Cera: Aah!

    [Grrr]

    Cera: Daddy! Aah!

    Narrator: ln this time of the clash of continents, an earthquake split the land. Herds were divided, families were cut in two. Littlefoot was separated from his grandparents.

    Cera's Father: Cera!

    Cera: Mama! Daddy!

    Narrator: Cera was on one side of the divide, her parents were on the other.

    Littlefoot: Mother! Mother! Uh! Mother? Where are you? Oh. Mother. Mother?

    Littlefoot's Mother: Oh.

    Littlefoot: Please, get up.

    Littlefoot's Mother: l'm... not sure l can, Littlefoot.

    Littlefoot: Yes, you can. Get up.

    Littlefoot's Mother: Dear, sweet Littlefoot, do you remember the way to the Great Valley?

    Littlefoot: l guess so, but why do l have to know? You're going to be with me.

    Littlefoot's Mother: l'll be with you, even if you can't see me.

    Littlefoot: What do you mean if l can't see you? l can always see you.

    Littlefoot's Mother: Littlefoot, let your heart guide you. lt whispers. So listen closely.

    Littlefoot: Mother? Mother?

    (Cut to: A mountain valley)

    Littlefoot: (groaning sadly until he crashes into another dinosaur)

    Rooter: Hey! What's going on here?

    Littlefoot [Crying]

    Rooter: What's your problem? You're not hurt.

    Littlefoot: lt's not fair. She should have known better. That was a sharptooth. lt's all her fault.

    Rooter: All whose fault?

    Littlefoot: Mother's.

    Rooter: Oh... l see. l see.

    Littlefoot: Why did l wander so far from home?

    Rooter: Oh, it's not your fault. lt's not your mother's fault. You pay attention to old Rooter. lt is nobody's fault.The great circle of life has begun, but, you see, not all of us arrive together at the end.

    Littlefoot: What'll l do? l miss her so much.

    Rooter: You'll always miss her, but she'll always be with you if you remember what she taught you. You'll never really be apart, for you're still a part of each other.

    Littlefoot: My tummy hurts.

    Rooter: Well, that, too, will go in time, little fella... only in time.

    [Peep Peep Peep]

    Narrator: At first, Littlefoot could only think about his mother. He hardly noticed his hunger and forgot that he must reach the Great Valley.

    [Peep Peep]

    [Peep]

    [Peep]

    Littlefoot's Mother: Littlefoot. Littlefoot. Dear Littlefoot, do you remember the way to the Great Valley? Follow the bright circle past the great rock that looks like a long-neck and past the mountains that burn. l'll be in your heart, Littlefoot. Let your heart guide you.

    [Gasp]

    Littlefoot: Mother. Mother! Hee hee hee! Mother! Heh heh! lt's you! Wait, Mother! Wait! (realizes it's his own shadow)

    Narrator: Then, Littlefoot knew for certain that he was alone and that though the Great Valley was far away and the journey perilous, he'd have to find his way, or the chain of life would be broken.

    Littlefoot: Cera! Cera, hello.

    Cera: What do you want?

    Littlefoot: Nothing. Where are you going?

    Cera: l'm going to find my own kind. They're on the other side.

    Littlefoot: You can't climb up the other side.

    Cera: Maybe you can't. Uhh! Uhh!

    Littlefoot: l'm going to the Great Valley. We could... help each other.

    Cera: Ha! A three-horn--Uhh!--does not need help from a long-neck. [Gasp] Aah!

    Littlefoot: W-well, at least we wouldn't be alone.

    Cera: Well, when l find my sisters, l won't be alone. So, go away. Three-horns can be very dangerous. They only talk with other three-horns, and they only travel with other three-horns.

    Ducky: Hello. l said hello. What is your name? Maybe you cannot talk yet. Huh? Huh? Don't you know anything?

    Littlefoot: Long-necks don't talk to, uh, whatever you are.

    Ducky: Me? l'm a long-neck, too. See? And l have a long tail like you. All right... l'm not a long-neck. l'm a bigmouth, but l am all alone.

    Littlefoot: l am. l lost my family in the big earthshake. Um... you want to go with me?

    Ducky: Yeah! Oh. Oh, yes, yes, yes! l do, l do!

    Littlefoot: All right. Come on... but you have to keep up.

    Ducky: l will keep up. l will. [Hums] Where are we going?

    Littlefoot: To the Great Valley. l won't stop until l find my grandparents.

    Ducky: Do you think my family went to the Great Valley, too?

    Littlefoot: Maybe. My mother said it's where all the herds were going.

    Ducky: Oh, l hope. l hope.

    Littlefoot: My name's Littlefoot.

    Ducky: Mine is Ducky. Yep, that's what it is.

    Ducky: Hmm hmm

    [Growl]

    Littlefoot: Heh heh.

    Ducky: My stomach is talking.

    Littlefoot: Mine, too. Hmm. l wonder what this tastes like.

    Aah!

    Ducky: The tree is talking.

    Littlefoot: No, it isn't.

    Ducky: You should not eat talking trees. Nope, nope, nope.

    Petrie: Brlrblblrb! Oooh!

    Littlefoot: Aaooh!

    Petrie Hee hee.

    Littlefoot: Aah!

    Petrie: Waah!

    Littlefoot & Ducky: Aah!

    Littlefoot: Who are you? Huh?

    Petrie: M-my name Petrie.

    Ducky: Petrie, huh? Funny name.

    Petrie: Uh, l--l flied?

    Ducky:No. You falled.

    Petrie: l falled? Ohh!

    Ducky: You cannot fly?

    Littlefoot: How did you get up there?

    Petrie: l climb.

    Littlefoot: But you're a flier, not a faller.

    Petrie: Hard thing to fly.

    Littlefoot: l guess it is.

    Ducky: We can't do it. Nope, we cannot.

    Cera: [Gasp] Uhh! Aah! Uhh! Uhh! Aah!

    Ducky: Mm hmm hmm

    Hmm hmm

    Littlefoot: Shh! Quiet.

    [Grrr]

    Littlefoot: Stay low.

    [Grrr]

    Littlefoot: Ow! Hey! Petrie! Get off!

    Petrie: You got nice flat head, Flathead.

    Littlefoot: My name is not Flathead. My name is Littlefoot.

    Petrie: Littlefoot? Hmm.

    Littlefoot: Are you just going to stay up there?

    Petrie: Yes.

    Littlefoot: Well, you can't. You're tearing my tree star.

    Ducky: lt is very special. His mother gave it to him. She did.

    Petrie: Ooh! Mother present. Very important. l keep safes. Don't let nobodies touch.

    Ducky: Yep, Petrie, you keep it safe. Yep.

    Littlefoot: Nope. l'm not a carrier. Get off! You're a flier. Start flying.

    Petrie: B-b-b-but--waah! Waah! Aah! Aah!

    Littlefoot: Open your wings, Petrie!

    Ducky: Open! Open!

    Petrie: No can do this!

    Littlefoot: You can fly! Now, open your skinny wings!

    Ducky: Petrie, higher! Higher like a flier!

    Petrie: Danger!

    Ducky: Where, Petrie?

    Petrie: Th-th-there! Ahead!

    Littlefoot: - Whoa!

    All: Whoa!

    Cera: Aah!

    Littlefoot: Cera! lt's you! What happened? Why are you so frightened?

    Cera: Frightened? Me? Ha ha ha! Why are you so frightened?

    Littlefoot: We're not frightened... are we?

    Ducky: Nope, nope.

    Cera: Well, you should be. l could be with the other three-horns, but l came back to warn you. l met the sharptooth!

    Petrie: Sharptooth! Ooh!

    Littlefoot: Come on, Cera. Sharptooth is dead. He fell down into the big underground.

    Cera: And that's... where he met me.

    Ducky: Oh! Dear, brave Cera. Dear, brave Cera.

    Cera: Yes, l am brave. Sharptooth is dead! My father told me that flatheads had very small brains. l was all alone with him in the dark, just the sharptooth and me. l could hear him breathing.

    Cera:[Hrrahh] [Hrraaahh]

    Petrie: Aah!

    Cera: l could see his one big ugly eye looking for me.

    Ducky: [Gasp]

    Cera: [Hrrahh]

    Ducky: What did you do? Huh? Huh?

    Cera:l walked right up to him. I looked him straight in the eye and said... [Hrraah]

    Ducky: Aah! Whoa! Uhh!

    [Snoring]

    Littlefoot: Ducky!

    Ducky: Hello.

    [Snoring]

    Ducky: Hello? You should come out. You should. You are late. Yes, you are. Yep, yep, yep. Come out! You are all alone. Are you not scared? Huh?

    [Yawn]

    Ducky: We're going to the Great Valley. You could go with us. Yes. Uh, you are a spiketail, so we will call you Spike.

    Littlefoot: Ducky!

    Narrator: So the five hungry dinosaurs left for the Great Valley. There had never been such a herd-- A long-neck, a three-horn, a bigmouth, a flier, and a spiketail, all knowing that if they lost their way, they would starve or find themselves in sharptooth's shadow.

    Littlefoot: Hmm. Tree stars grow where there's lots of water. lf we follow this water...

    Petrie: [Sniff Sniff] Hmm. No green foods here, and l still hungry.

    Ducky: l'm still hungry, too. Aah!

    Petrie: [Sniff Sniff]

    Littlefoot: Can you smell something?

    Petrie: [Sniff Sniff] l...l... l smell... l smell... l smell... Hmm... Ducky.

    Ducky: You smell me? Heh heh.

    Littlefoot: l smell water. l smell... tree stars!

    Cera: Oh, look!

    Ducky: Green food!

    Littlefoot: The Great Valley!

    Cera: l found it!

    Littlefoot: Cera, stop it!

    Cera: l found it!

    [Rumbling]

    Littlefoot: Earthshake!

    Cera: We've got to get out of here!

    Littlefoot: That way! Come on!

    Cera: Help!

    Ducky: Spike, hurry up!

    Littlefoot: Ducky, Spike, get out of there!

    [Gasp]

    [Gasp]

    Cera: They're eating our food! Look, look what they're doing! They're so greedy! What about me? l'm still hungry!

    Petrie: Haah! You hungry? l empty to the top. We at the Great Valley and still no foods. We be hungry forevers. Ohh!

    Littlefoot: No, Petrie. Cera was wrong. This isn't the Great Valley.

    Ducky: Oh, it is not a great anything. Nope, nope, nope.

    Littlefoot: We better go down and see if anything's left. Petrie, could you fly up there and--

    Petrie: No!

    Ducky: Petrie, do not feel sad. Many things do not fly--Rocks, trees, sticks, Spike.

    Petrie: Waah!

    - Hey!

    - No!

    Littlefoot: Ducky, push Petrie towards the branches.

    Petrie: Ohh!

    Littlefoot: Ok, Spike, not too fast.

    All: Whoa!

    Littlefoot: Ok. Hey, not too fast. Hey, not too fast!

    All: Aah!

    Cera: You four look so ridiculous. Ha ha ha ha!

    Petrie: Ohh!

    Littlefoot: Ducky, Petrie, come down here! We've got green food!

    Ducky: Fly, Petrie!

    Petrie: Aah!

    Ducky: Fly, Petrie! Flap your wings!

    Petrie: [Awk] l flied?

    Littlefoot: Come on, Cera. We've got green food.

    Cera: l can get my own green food. See? l can take care of myself... all by myself. And l'm not afraid to be alone! l know my way to go, and l'm not afraid of Sharptooth! l hope he doesn't eat any of you.

    Littlefoot: Don't worry. There isn't any sharptooth.

    [Gasp] Sharptooth!

    Ducky: Spike.

    Ahem.

    [Sigh]

    Littlefoot: There isn't any sharptooth.

    Mmm.

    Mmm.

    [Thud]

    Ohh!

    [Grrr]

    [Grrr]

    Cera: Wake up. Wake up! Wake up!

    Littlefoot: Hey, stop that.

    Cera: Shh! lt's Sharptooth.

    Littlefoot: Cera, stop it.

    Cera: Shh! He'll eat us. He'll eat us! Run!

    Littlefoot: Come back!

    Cera: Don't look back! Keep going!

    Aah!

    Cera: Now, will you believe me?

    Littlefoot: We're safe now.

    Cera: Nobody's safe with you.

    Littlefoot: Look. That rock looks like a long-neck, like my mother said. We're going the right way, the way to the Great Valley!

    Narrator: Littlefoot had been wrong about the sharptooth, but the others followed. Their only hope was the Great Valley. Littlefoot alone knew the way.

    Littlefoot: Come on. Get up. We're going the right way. We got to keep moving. You can't quit. What if the Great Valley is just over these rocks?

    Narrator: Though they were sore-stumped and tired, Littlefoot urged them on. He'd never seen the Great Valley, but his heart told him they were close. Surely at the top, they'd behold it.

    Cera: This is your Great Valley? You're crazy. l'm leaving.

    Littlefoot: Cera, we have to keep following the bright circle.

    Cera: l'm taking the easy way.

    Littlefoot: lt's the wrong way.

    Cera: Who says?

    Littlefoot: My mother.

    Cera: Then she was stupid long-neck, too.

    Littlefoot: Take that back.

    Cera: Never.

    Littlefoot: Take it back!

    Cera: No! Ducky: Spike! Spike, stop! Don't fall!

    Cera: You!

    Littlefoot: Let go of my leg!

    Ducky: Spike.

    Cera: Take that! Huh!

    Littlefoot: Go on! Go the wrong way. We never wanted you with us anyway. Come on. We have to keep going. Come on.

    Ducky: Cera's way is easier.

    Petrie: l think so, too. Oh, Flathead, wait! Ooh! Aah! Ow! No be angry. Wait!

    Ducky: Cera, wait for us!

    Petrie: We're coming with you, Cera!

    Littlefoot: Cera, Spike, wait!

    Ducky: l wish Littlefoot was here with us now.

    Petrie: Me, too.

    Ducky: Spike. Spike, do not stop! We must stay together!

    Petrie: A-a-a-aah! Aah! Whoa! Cera, l-- Whoa! Oh, Cera, Ducky, Spike! Help!

    Ducky: Help, Cera!

    Littlefoot: Cera, where are you?

    Ducky: Littlefoot!

    Littlefoot: Ducky!

    Petrie: Littlefoot!

    Littlefoot: Hang on! l'm coming!

    Ducky: Littlefoot!

    Littlefoot: Quick, this way! Hang on, Petrie!

    Petrie: Help! Ooh!

    Littlefoot: Ducky! Spike!

    Petrie: Oh, Petrie am so happy.

    Littlefoot: Jump, Petrie! Help, Ducky! Petrie, pull!

    Ducky: Petrie.

    Cera: Aah! Help! Help! Aah! Aah! Help me! Help!

    Monster: Woo!

    Cera: Get away from me! Aah! Let go of me! Help! Help! Petrie, Spike, Ducky, help!

    Ducky: Cera, it is us.

    Cera: Aah!

    All: Ha ha ha!

    Cera: l knew it was you all along. l did! Oh, get out of my way.

    Littlefoot: Cera? Cera, come back! Come back!

    Narrator: Cera was still too proud to admit that... she'd gone the wrong way. [Crying]

    [Grrr]

    Petrie: Aah! Sharptooth!

    Ducky: lt's sharptooth.

    Littlefoot: Let's get rid of him for good. We'll coax him to deep water. He can't swim with scrawny arms. Me and Spike will push that rock on his head. He'll fall into the water. Petrie, whistle when he's where the water gets dark. Now we need some bait. Hmm.

    Ducky: Me? Oh, no. No, no, no, no.

    [Grrr]

    Ducky: Hm--hm--hm--hm...

    [Grrr]

    Ducky: Aah!

    Petrie: Aah!

    Ducky: He was my friend. Poor Petrie! Poor, poor Petrie. Petrie.

    [Gasping]

    Petrie: Stop! You go without Petrie?

    Ducky: Petrie. Oh! Petrie, you're safe! Yep, yep, yep, yep, yep, yep!

    Littlefoot's Mother: Littlefoot. Littlefoot.

    Littlefoot: Mother!

    Littlefoot's Mother: Littlefoot.

    Littlefoot: Mother? l tried to do what you told me, but it's just too hard. l'll never find the Great Valley.

    [Wind Blows]

    Littlefoot: Mother. Mother! Don't go, Mother! Don't go! The Great Valley. Cera, Spike, Ducky, Petrie, over here!

    Ducky: Littlefoot, you found it! Yep, yep, yep.

    Littlefoot: We did it. We did it together!

    Narrator: The Great Valley was all they dreamed it would be-- A land of green, leaves and life. There were waterfalls, grassy meadows, enough tree stars to feast on forever and raising upon them, their families.

    Ducky: This is our new brother Spike.

    Petrie: Mama, l a flier!

    Petrie's Family: Yay!

    Cera: Daddy!

    Cera's Father: Cera?

    Cera: Daddy.

    Narrator: And Littlefoot found his grandmother and grandfather at last-- The same loving faces he'd looked into on the day of his birth.

    Cera: Littlefoot! Come on. l'll race you.

    Narrator: And they all grew up together in the valley-- Generation upon generation, each passing on to the next: The tale of their ancestors' journey to the valley... long ago.

  • Blossomkit:

    Tortoiseshell is a cat coat coloring named for its similarity to tortoiseshell material. Like calicos, tortoiseshell cats are almost exclusively female.[1][2][3] Male tortoiseshells are rare and are usually sterile.[4][a]


    Also called torties for short, tortoiseshell cats combine two colors other than white, either closely mixed or in larger patches.[2] The colors are often described as red and black, but the "red" patches can instead be orange, yellow, or cream,[2] and the "black" can instead be chocolate, grey, tabby, or blue.[2] Tortoiseshell cats with the tabby pattern as one of their colors are sometimes referred to as a torbie.[6]


    "Tortoiseshell" is typically reserved for particolored cats with relatively small or no white markings. Those that are largely white with tortoiseshell patches are described as tricolor,[2] tortoiseshell-and-white (in the United Kingdom), or calico (in Canada and the United States).[7]


    Tortoiseshell markings appear in many different breeds, as well as in non-purebred domestic cats.[7] This pattern is especially preferred in the Japanese Bobtail breed,[8] and exists in the Cornish Rex group.[9]


  • Chillykit:

    A tabby is any domestic cat (Felis catus) that has a coat featuring distinctive stripes, dots, lines or swirling patterns, usually together with a mark resembling an 'M' on its forehead. Tabbies are sometimes erroneously assumed to be a cat breed.[1] In fact, the tabby pattern is found in many breeds, and is a genetic landrace common among the general mixed-breed population. The tabby pattern is a naturally occurring feature that may be related to the coloration of the domestic cat's direct ancestor, the African wildcat (Felis lybica lybica), which—along with the European wildcat (Felis silvestris silvestris) and Asiatic wildcat (Felis lybica ornata)—has a similar coloration. A genetic study found five genetic clusters from tabbies to be ancestral to wildcats of various parts of the world.[2]

    A fifth includes tabby as part of another basic color pattern. The "Patched" tabby is a calico or tortoiseshell cat with tabby patches (also known as "caliby" and "torbie", respectively).[1]


    All those patterns have been observed in random-bred populations. Several additional patterns are found in specific breeds. A modified Classic tabby is found in the Sokoke breed. Some are due to the interaction of wild and domestic genes. Rosetted and marbled patterns are found in the Bengal breed.


    Mackerel tabby

    The Mackerel tabby pattern has vertical, gently curving stripes on the side of the body. The stripes are narrow and may be continuous or broken into bars and spots on the flanks and stomach. An "M" shape appears on the forehead, along with dark lines across the cat's cheeks to the corners of its eyes. Mackerels are also called 'fishbone tabbies', probably because they are named after the mackerel fish.[7] Mackerel is the most common tabby pattern.


    Classic tabby

    The Classic (also known as "Blotched" or "Marbled") tabby tends to have a pattern of dark browns, ochres and black but also occurs in grey. Classic tabbies have the "M" pattern on their foreheads but the body markings have a whirled or swirled pattern (often called a "bullseye") on the cat's sides. There is also a light colored "butterfly" pattern on the shoulders and three thin stripes (the center stripe is dark) running along its spine. Like the Mackerel tabby, Classic tabbies have dark bars on the legs, tail, and cheeks.


    Ticked tabby

    The Ticked (or Stripeless) tabby pattern produces agouti hairs, hairs with distinct bands of color on them, breaking up the tabby patterning into a "salt-and-pepper" or "sand"-like appearance. Residual ghost striping or "barring" can often be seen on the lower legs, face, and belly and sometimes at the tail tip, as well as a long dark line running along the back, usually in the spine.


    Spotted tabby

    The Spotted tabby is a modifier that breaks up the Mackerel tabby pattern so that the stripes appear as spots. Similarly, the stripes of the Classic tabby pattern may be broken into larger spots. Both large spot and small spot patterns can be seen in the Australian Mist, Bengal, Serengeti, Egyptian Mau, Arabian Mau, Maine Coon, and Ocicat breeds.


    Genetic explanations for tabby patterns

    Main article: Cat coat genetics


    Tabby point on Mekong bobtail

    The tabby patterns are due to three distinct gene loci and one modifier:


    The agouti gene, A/a,[8] controls whether or not the tabby pattern is expressed. The dominant A expresses the underlying tabby pattern, while the recessive non-agouti or "hypermelanistic" allele, a, does not. Solid-color (black or blue) cats have the aa combination, hiding the tabby pattern, although sometimes a suggestion of the underlying pattern can be seen (called "ghost striping") This pattern is mostly seen in young cats that still have the baby coat. The right pattern (Classic, Mackerel, or Spotted) will reveal itself then, because that is independent of whether it is tabby or solid.


    However, the agouti gene only controls the production of black pigment, so a cat with an O allele for orange color will still have the tabby pattern. As a result, both red cats and the patches of red on tortoiseshell cats will show tabby striping.


    The primary tabby pattern gene, Mc/mc or Mc/Mc, sets the basic pattern of stripes that underlies the coat. Mc is the wild-type tabby gene and produces what is called a Mackerel Striped tabby. Classic tabbies are cats who also possess mc/mc, a recessive mutant gene that produces the blotched pattern.


    The spotted gene is directly connected to the Mc gene; it 'breaks' the lines of a Mackerel tabby, turning it into spots. The spotted gene is dominant as well, which means a Spotted will be Sp/sp or Sp/Sp together with Mc/mc and Mc/Mc and A/a and A/A.


    The Ticked tabby pattern is on a different gene locus than the Mackerel and Classic tabby patterns, and is epistatic to the other patterns. A dominant mutation, Ta / ta, masks any other tabby pattern, producing a non-patterned, or agouti tabby, with virtually no stripes or bars. If the Ticked tabby pattern gene is present, any other tabby pattern is masked. Cats homozygous for the ticked allele (Ta / Ta) have less barring than cats heterozygous for the ticked allele. When a cat of this genetic make-up is selectively bred for lack of barring and wide banding on the hair shaft, the resulting pattern is referred to as Shaded.


    History


    A European wildcat (F. s. silvestris) bearing a similar coat pattern to that of a tabby cat. It is thought that the tabby pattern originates from the numerous subspecies of the wildcat.

    Since the tabby pattern is a common wild type, it might be assumed that medieval cats were tabbies. However, one writer believed this to be untrue, at least in England. Some time after the mid-17th century, the natural philosopher John Aubrey noted that William Laud, the Archbishop of Canterbury was "a great lover of Cats" and "was presented with some Cyprus-cats, i.e. our Tabby-Cats". He then claimed that "I doe [sic] well remember that the common English Catt, was white with some blueish piednesse (i.e. white with grey parts). The race or breed of them are now almost lost."[9] However, most drawings or paintings of cats in medieval manuscripts do show them to be tabbies.[10]


    Notable examples

    Well-known tabby cats include Freya, who belongs to former British Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne,[11] and Think Think, one of two cats belonging to the President of Taiwan, Tsai Ing-wen.[12] One of the first mass-produced stuffed toys, the Ithaca Kitty, was inspired by a tabby cat.[13]

  • Feathershine (instead of a close-up of her pelt like the other cats, I went for a snowy backdrop because it would've been difficult to make text readable on a black-and-white backdrop, also to reference that I created her for SnowClan EDIT: okay I may actually go for the fur backdrop):

    Schrödinger intended his thought experiment as a discussion of the EPR article—named after its authors Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen—in 1935. The EPR article highlighted the bizarre nature of quantum superpositions, in which a quantum system such as an atom or photon can exist as a combination of multiple states corresponding to different possible outcomes. The prevailing theory, called the Copenhagen interpretation, said that a quantum system remains in superposition until it interacts with, or is observed by the external world. When this happens, the superposition collapses into one or another of the possible definite states. The EPR experiment showed that a system with multiple particles separated by large distances could be in such a superposition. Schrödinger and Einstein exchanged letters about Einstein's EPR article, in the course of which Einstein pointed out that the state of an unstable keg of gunpowder will, after a while, contain a superposition of both exploded and unexploded states.

    To further illustrate, Schrödinger described how one could, in principle, create a superposition in a large-scale system by making it dependent on a quantum particle that was in a superposition. He proposed a scenario with a cat in a locked steel chamber, wherein the cat's life or death depended on the state of a radioactive atom, whether it had decayed and emitted radiation or not. According to Schrödinger, the Copenhagen interpretation implies that the cat remains both alive and dead until the state has been observed. Schrödinger did not wish to promote the idea of dead-and-alive cats as a serious possibility; on the contrary, he intended the example to illustrate the absurdity of the existing view of quantum mechanics. However, since Schrödinger's time, other interpretations of the mathematics of quantum mechanics have been advanced by physicists, some of which regard the "alive and dead" cat superposition as quite real. Intended as a critique of the Copenhagen interpretation (the prevailing orthodoxy in 1935), the Schrödinger's cat thought experiment remains a defining touchstone for modern interpretations of quantum mechanics. Physicists often use the way each interpretation deals with Schrödinger's cat as a way of illustrating and comparing the particular features, strengths, and weaknesses of each interpretation.

    JAPANESE Tomoaki Maeno

    U-1146, White Blood Cell (白血球 Hakkekkyū?) is one of the main protagonists in Cells at Work!


    He is a white blood cell, specifically a Neutrophil (好中球, Kōchūkyū), working under the Neutrophil Division. Along with other neutrophil comrades, he is tasked to patrol around the blood vessel and remove any invading foreign cells.


    Contents[show]

    Appearance Edit

    As a neutrophil cell, he has extremely pale skin, white hair, and black dull eyes. He is tall and lean like most of his comrades. Moreover, he wears the neutrophil uniform which only consists of the color white. Due to his violent job, he is often seen stained in blood after killing foreign cells.


    Personality Edit

    U-1146 is a rather reserved white blood cell, maintaining an aloof disposition at most times. Like other white blood cells, his personality drastically changes during combat, becoming much more aggressive and brutal as he violently eliminates any invading germs in his path. Despite coming off as cold and ruthless, he is in fact very kind and selfless, willing to put his life on the line to protect his fellow cells. He has managed to maintain good relationships with other cells and does not seem to judge them by their rank or type. Though his job requires him to kill off any invading germs with no remorse, he is still capable of empathizing with his enemy, such as paying respect to any infected cells he had to kill and even listening to Cancer Cell's final words before ending his life.


    History Edit

    WBCmyelocyte

    U-1146 as a myelocyte


    As a myelocyte, U-1146 saved AE3803 from a pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteria. He remained protective and endured the attacks from the bacteria until help arrived. After the threat had been killed, both of the children returned to their specific bone marrows. Before they left, they agreed to meet each other again when they grew up even though the chances of reunion were unknown.

    U-1146 made it through the training and graduated into a full-fledged neutrophil. He doesn't seem to recognize or remember AE3803.


    Abilities Edit

    Like all neutrophils, he possesses abilities that enable him to quickly terminate threats.


    Overall Abilities: As one of the most abundant white blood cells, he can terminate any kind of harmful cells to the body from germs to cancer cells. He is incredibly agile and strong as he is able to slice common bacterium in half with one blow.

    Phagocytosis: White blood cells can analyze an unknown foreign cell by eating them which will help them identify its species, or consume them as food.

    Knife Proficiency: He is an efficient knife-fighter just like all neutrophils. Along with his agility to aid him, he can swiftly terminate a group of intruders alone. He is also able to block up to multiple attacks from aggressive bacterium continuously. Apart from close-range combat, he is able to throw his knives with accurate aim if an enemy is far beyond reach.

    Receptor: All neutrophils have a receptor that acts like a radar which alerts them whenever a threat is near.

    L-Selectin: A feature in their uniforms that let them adhere to certain surfaces

    Wandering Cell: He is a cell that is not fixed in place and able to move freely around the blood vessel.

    Transmigrate: He is able to move freely inside a tissue and reach his destination much faster.

    Trivia Edit

    He wears L-sized clothes.[1]

    "1146" in Japanese contains the syllables "shiro" which means "white".

  • Sunburn:

    A dragon is a large, serpent-like legendary creature that appears in the folklore of many cultures around the world. Beliefs about dragons vary drastically by region, but dragons in western cultures since the High Middle Ages have often been depicted as winged, horned, four-legged, and capable of breathing fire. Dragons in eastern cultures are usually depicted as wingless, four-legged, serpentine creatures with above-average intelligence.

    The earliest attested dragons resemble giant snakes. Dragon-like creatures are first described in the mythologies of the ancient Near East and appear in ancient Mesopotamian art and literature. Stories about storm-godsslaying giant serpents occur throughout nearly all Indo-European and Near Eastern mythologies. Famous prototypical dragons include the mušḫuššu of ancient Mesopotamia, Apep in Egyptian mythology, Vṛtra in the Rigveda, the Leviathan in the Hebrew Bible, Python, Ladon, Wyvern, and the Lernaean Hydra in Greek mythology, Jörmungandr, Níðhöggr, and Fafnir in Norse mythology, and the dragon from Beowulf.

    The popular western image of a dragon as winged, four-legged, and capable of breathing fire is an invention of the High Middle Ages based on a conflation of earlier dragons from different traditions. In western cultures, dragons are portrayed as monsters to be tamed or overcome, usually by saints or culture heroes, as in the popular legend of Saint George and the Dragon. They are often said to have ravenous appetites and to live in caves, where they hoard treasure. These dragons appear frequently in western fantasy literature, including The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien, the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling, and A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin.

    The word "dragon" has also come to be applied to the Chinese lung (龍, Pinyin long), which are associated with good fortune and are thought to have power over rain. Dragons and their associations with rain are the source of the Chinese customs of dragon dancing and dragon boat racing. Many East Asian deities and demigods have dragons as their personal mounts or companions. Dragons were also identified with the Emperor of China, who, during later Chinese imperial history, was the only one permitted to have dragons on his house, clothing, or personal articles.

    Mismakora

    Kirin is the Japanese form of "qilin", which has also come to be used in the modern Japanese word for a giraffe. Japanese art tends to depict the kirin as more deer-like than in Chinese art. Alternatively, it is depicted as a dragon shaped like a deer, but with an ox's tail instead of a lion's tail. The Kirin Brewery Company, Ltd., is named after the animal and uses a picture of one in its labels. They are also often portrayed as partially unicorn-like in appearance, but with a backwards curving horn.

    In the Post-Qin Chinese hierarchy of mythological animals, the qilin is ranked as the third most powerful creature (after the dragon and phoenix), but in Japan, the kirin occupies the top spot. This is following the style of the ancient Chinese, as qilin was ranked higher than the dragon or phoenix before the Qin dynasty. During the Zhou dynasty, the qilin was ranked the highest, the phoenix ranked second, and the dragon the third.[citation needed]

  • Lapis Lazuli:


    Lapis lazuli (/ˈlæpɪs ˈlæzjʊli, -laɪ/), or lapis for short, is a deep blue metamorphic rock used as a semi-precious stone that has been prized since antiquity for its intense color. As early as the 7th millennium BC, lapis lazuli was mined in the Sar-i Sang mines,[1] in Shortugai, and in other mines in Badakhshan province in northeast Afghanistan.[2] Lapis was highly valued by the Indus Valley Civilisation (3300–1900 BC). Lapis beads have been found at Neolithic burials in Mehrgarh, the Caucasus, and even as far from Afghanistan as Mauritania.[3] It was used in the funeral mask of Tutankhamun (1341–1323 BC).[4]


    At the end of the Middle Ages, lapis lazuli began to be exported to Europe, where it was ground into powder and made into ultramarine, the finest and most expensive of all blue pigments. It was used by some of the most important artists of the Renaissance and Baroque, including Masaccio, Perugino, Titian and Vermeer, and was often reserved for the clothing of the central figures of their paintings, especially the Virgin Mary.


    Today, mines in northeast Afghanistan are still the major source of lapis lazuli. Important amounts are also produced from mines west of Lake Baikal in Russia, and in the Andes mountains in Chile. Smaller quantities are mined in Italy, Mongolia, the United States, and Canada.[5]


    Slappy Squirrel:

    Squirrels are members of the family Sciuridae, a family that includes small or medium-size rodents. The squirrel family includes tree squirrels, ground squirrels, chipmunks, marmots (including woodchucks), flying squirrels, and prairie dogs amongst other rodents. Squirrels are indigenous to the Americas, Eurasia, and Africa, and were introduced by humans to Australia. The earliest known squirrels date from the Eocene period and are most closely related to the mountain beaver and to the dormouse among other living rodent families.


    Handy the Beaver:

    The beaver (genus Castor) is a large, primarily nocturnal, semiaquatic rodent. Castor includes two extant species, the North American beaver (Castor canadensis) (native to North America) and Eurasian beaver (Castor fiber) (Eurasia). Beavers are known for building dams, canals, and lodges (homes). They are the second-largest rodent in the world (after the capybara). Their colonies create one or more dams to provide still, deep water to protect against predators, and to float food and building material. The North American beaver population was once more than 60 million, but as of 1988 was 6–12 million. This population decline is the result of extensive hunting for fur, for glands used as medicine and perfume, and because the beavers' harvesting of trees and flooding of waterways may interfere with other land uses.


    Gizzy Goat:

    On his way to the glee club, Goofy Goat encounters a road hog - a pompous society pig being chauffeured in a car large enough to accommodate her enormous behind. A traffic cop stops them at an intersection, which gives Goofy the chance to lift his car up like a skirt and dance in front of her. When the cop lets them proceed, Goofy lifts up one of the back wheels and shoots exhaust fumes at her as a gesture of contempt. She utters "Damn" under her breath. Finally, Goofy makes it to the glee club in time for the amateur talent show. First, three kittens sing about losing their mittens. Next, Goofy's girlfriend plays the piano so vigorously that it breaks apart. Goofy, who happened to be inside the piano, extricates a harp from the wreckage, and she plays that instead. Next, a couple of bagpipers are momentarily thwarted when Goofy punctures their bags with an umbrella. Undeterred, they pick up a couple of pigs and play them instead. Finally, Goofy plays his own music with a makeshift accordion, but ends up in an epic battle with the anthropomorphic instrument.

  • Ofeshi:

    The cat (Felis catus, or Felis silvestris catus, literally "woodland cat"), often referred to as the domestic cat to distinguish from other felids and felines, is a small and typically furry, carnivorous mammal. It is often called house cat when kept as indoor pet or feral/feral domestic cat when wild. It is often valued by humans for companionship and for its ability to hunt vermin. There are more than seventy cat breeds recognized by various cat registries.

    Cats are similar in anatomy to the other felids, with a strong flexible body, quick reflexes, sharp teeth and retractable claws adapted to killing small prey. Cat senses fit a crepuscular and predatory ecological niche. Cats can hear sounds too faint or too high in frequency for human ears, such as those made by mice and other small animals. They can see in near darkness. Like most other mammals, cats have poorer color vision and a better sense of smell than humans. Cats, despite being solitary hunters, are a social species, and cat communication includes the use of a variety of vocalizations (mewing, purring, trilling, hissing, growling and grunting) as well as cat pheromones and types of cat-specific body language.

    Cats have a high breeding rate. Under controlled breeding, they can be bred and shown as registered pedigree pets, a hobby known as cat fancy. Failure to control the breeding of pet cats by spaying and neutering, as well as the abandonment of former household pets, has resulted in large numbers of feral cats worldwide, requiring population control. In certain areas outside cats' native range, this has contributed, along with habitat destruction and other factors, to the extinction of many bird species. Cats have been known to extirpate a bird species within specific regions and may have contributed to the extinction of isolated island populations. Cats are thought to be primarily responsible for the extinction of 87 species of birds, and the presence of feral and free-ranging cats makes some otherwise suitable locations unsuitable for attempted species reintroduction.

    Because cats were venerated in ancient Egypt, they were commonly believed to have been domesticated there, but there may have been instances of domestication as early as the Neolithic from around 9,500 years ago (7500 BC). Results of a genetic study in 2007 showed that all domestic cats descended from the Near Eastern wildcat and diverged around 8000 BC in the Middle East. The leopard cat was domesticated independently in China around 5500 BC, though this line of partially domesticated cats leaves no trace in the domesticated populations of today. A 2017 study confirmed that domestic cats are descendants of those first domesticated by farmers in the Near East around 9,000 years ago.

    As of a 2007 study, cats are the second-most popular pet in the U.S. by number of pets owned, after freshwater fish. In a 2010 study, they were ranked the third-most popular pet in the UK, after fish and dogs, with around 8 million being owned.


  • Entrapta:


    Entrapta seems too charming to stay in the Horde forever. She’s distracted by anything technological and doesn’t seem to bear anyone any real ill-will so long as she gets to tinker around with First Ones technology. She doesn’t hate the Horde or the Princesses, really. That attitude in and of itself is dangerous considering that it makes her vulnerable to Catra’s manipulations, which eventually results in her changing sides. And she certainly seems emotionally fulfilled (if a little batty) doing her job increasing the deadly power of the Horde. But considering she seems to have more of a soul than Hordak and Shadow Weaver and joined the Horde under false pretenses, is there a chance she could be turned back?

    Probably not any time soon, unfortunately. Entrapta was a villain in the original She-Ra series, and given how well she rounds out Team Horde with Scorpia’s oddly sunny disposition and Catra’s deadly determination, there’s no real reason to change that. She might get a redemption arc at some point down the road (especially given how genuinely upset her friends were at the thought of her death), but, for now, she's happy where she is. Plus, her dynamic with the rest of the Horde provides welcome levity.
