The Adventures of Developer 13 and Totally Awesome Dude
« on: May 05, 2016, 05:43:16 AM »
Act: 1
Sence: 1
Interior, Developer 13's apartment on Talos Island
Modern decor, studio apartment, lots of computer equipment stacked neatly along the walls and in the corners.

The door bell chimes.
Developer 13: Who could that be, on a Sinday, at this hour?
(crosses to the door and opens it.)

Totally Awesome Dude: Howdy-howdy, mind if I come in?
(pushes pass Developer 13.)

Developer 13: Tad, what are you doing here?
(shuts door and follows TAD into apartment.)

Totally Awesome Dude:  I know we haven't always been the closest of friends

Developer 13: Stop right there
(interrupting TAD and holding up a hand.)
Developer 13:  I know what you're going to ask, and the answer is no.  I don't loan money to supers.

Totally Awesome Dude: Ha!  You're funny.  You know that compared to my fortune, developers' barely make a living wage.

Developer 13: Yeah, I forgot.  So what do you want?

Totally Awesome Dude: The Adventure!
(crossing to Developer 13 and putting his hand on Dev's shoulders.)
Totally Awesome Dude: I want back in the game!

Developer 13: We all want the game back, but

Totally Awesome Dude: I got my police scanner working again.  It could be like old times!

Developer 13: You're crazy.

Totally Awesome Dude: Am I?
(pulling back he produced a police scanner, it was broken and had wires hanging out, but it crackled to life.)

Police Scanner (radio): 4-13 at 21st and Belle use 10-99

Developer 13: That's incredible!

Police Scanner (radio): pop  (puff of smoke)

Totally Awesome Dude: It does that from time to time, but it works!

They both laughed.

Deeveloper 13:  Tell me that you can get it working again!

Totally Awesome Dude: (crosses to table and places scanner on it) Well I don't have my tools with me.

Developer 13: (crosses to table and sits down, grabs scanner and moves it towards him) Let me see what I can do.

Totally Awesome Dude: (grabs chair and sits) Dev, I thought you were just software, do you know hardware?

Developer 13: (puts jeweler's eyepiece on) Trust me I know what I'm doing.

Totally Awesome Dude: (watching Developer 13 intently)  No, no, stop!

Developer 13:  (pulling a green wire) Don't worry.

Police Scanner: (radio) See the woman, 4-19 at 20-12 with 7-43.

Totally Awesome Dude:  See, you broke it.  It's not making any sense.

Developer 13:  We just have to figure out what a 20-12 is and we're home free.

Totally Awesome Dude:  Nobody knows what a 20-12 is.  We're hosed, loser.

Defeloper 13: Here you go Tad, here's your police scanner back.

Police Scanner: (radio) Attention all units, 19-46 at 56-12 no 94 repeat no 94.

Totally Awesome Dude:  Gee thanks.

Act: 1
Scene: 2
Exterior, Talos Island, Paragon City, R.I., outside of a run-down building.

Developer 13: (checks map) This must be the place.

Totally Awesome Dude: Yeah, the scanner said 4-19 and this is 419 S. Spooky Run-Down Warehouse Lane.

Developer 13:  (motions towards the door) shall we go in?

Totally Awesome Dude: Yeah, you first.

Developer 13: (doing a chicken emote) What?  Are you scared?

Totally Awesome Dude:  Dev, you nut.  No, I need you to check for voids.

Developer 13:  Likely story.  I think you are going to take off as I go inside.

Totally Awesome Dude:  Dev, I would never do anything like that.

Developer 13:  I don’t like it, it’s too quiet.

Totally Awesome Dude:  Shall I make some noise?

Developer 13: No you idiot.  The bad guys are too quiet.

Totally Awesome Dude:  What did you expect?

Developer 13:  Something like the Minion Song or that Everything Is Awesome song.

Totally Awesome Dude:  You want trained killers to sing, “Everything is awesome!”

Developer 13:  Well, when you put it that way, anything would sound silly.

Totally Awesome Dude:  Dev, just go in, look around, and if you get into trouble, explain the use of a ternary.

They both laughed

Act: 1
Scene: 3
Interior, Warehouse type building

Totally Awesome Dude: (whispering) Do you see anything?

Developer 13: How can I with you bothering me all the time?

Totally Awesome Dude: Well excuse me for wanting to live.  Those voids scare the bee-gee-bees out of me.

Developer 13: I knew it, you’re scared.

Totally Awesome Dude: I’m not scared.

Developer 13: (making chicken noises)

Totally Awesome Dude: I’m not scared.

Developer 13: (making chicken noises a little louder)

Totally Awesome Dude: (shouting) I’m not scared!

Void Stalker: (appearing from around the corner) You ought to be!

Totally Awesome Dude: Dev, you Flower Night-ed me!

Void Stalker: (Fires Quantum Array Gun at Totally Awesome Dude)

Totally Awesome Dude: (Falls backwards to the floor)

Developer 13: TAD!  (Uses Levitate on Void Stalker) Take that you fiend.

Void Stalker: (Getting up from being thrown to the floor) Hey, I’m just doing my job.

Developer 13: Well, do it somewhere else.

Void Stalker: Fine!  (Turns and walks away)

Developer 13: (helping TAD to his feet) You alright?

Totally Awesome Dude:  See I told you that I wasn’t scared.

Developer 13: You were scared.

Totally Awesome Dude:  I wasn’t scared.

Act: 2
Scene: 1
Interior, warehouse, shelving with packages.

Developer 13: All we have to do is get past that group and open that crate.

Totally Awesome Dude: You’re thinking that the mission objective is in that crate.

Developer 13: Not really, but it looks like a nice crate.

Totally Awesome Dude: You’ve seen one crate, you’ve seen them all.

Developer 13: Au contraire!

Totally Awesome Dude: What?  Does it have a certain … je ne sais quoi.

Developer 13: Oui, mon ami.

Totally Awesome Dude: dites-moi pourquoi, s'il vous plaît.

Developer 13: Ok, enough of the French.

Totally Awesome Dude: So we’re stopping the French?

Developer 13: Yes, we’re stopping the French.

Totally Awesome Dude: Non problemo.

Developer 13: Of all the heroes in all the gin joints in all the world, why do I have to be here with you?

Act: 2
Scene: 2
Interior, warehouse, shelving with packages.

Developer 13: Ok, that was some battle.

Totally Awesome Dude: Yeah, if somebody were writing a book, they might have a difficult time detailing all the intense action and spectacular maneuvers we executed.

Developer 13: Well, there’s the crate, open it.

Totally Awesome Dude: Yeah, I not falling for that, you open it.

Developer 13: I’m not trying to trick you, just open the stupid thing.

Totally Awesome Dude: Why don’t you open it?

Developer 13: You’re closer, and besides, I’m watching out for Voids, remember.

Totally Awesome Dude: (Yawning), You’re starting to put me to sleep.

Developer 13: TAD, open the [expletive redacted] crate, you [expletive redacted]!

Totally Awesome Dude: Ok, ok, no need to get huffy.  (kneels in front of the crate and begins working the latch mechanism]

Developer 13: What’s taking so long?

Totally Awesome Dude: There appears to be a warning label on it, what should I do?

Developer 13: Can you make it out?

Totally Awesome Dude: Yes.

Developer 13: (after a short pause), Well, what does it say!

Totally Awesome Dude: It says that the crate is air-tight when closed, and that young children should be watched around it.

Developer 13: Open the [expletive redacted] thing!

Totally Awesome Dude: Some people.  (opens the crate).

(Both heroes receive much needed gear and treasure)

Developer 13: See, I told you so.

Totally Awesome Dude: Yeah, yeah.  Hey should we take the crate with us?

Developer 13: Do you expect to meet young children?

Totally Awesome Dude: One never knows what one might need while one adventures into the dark cold terrifying city that is Paragon City.

Developer 13: No, leave the crate.

Totally Awesome Dude: But it is a nice crate.

Developer 13: Five minutes ago you didn’t even want to open it.

Totally Awesome Dude: That was then; this is now.

Developer 13: How did you ever make Kheldian?

Totally Awesome Dude: Well it is a long story involving frogs, cam-shafts and a boutineer.

Developer 13: Never mind.

Act: 3
Scene: 1
Interior, warehouse, shelving with packages.

Developer 13: Ok, all we got to do now is get out of here in one piece.

Totally Awesome Dude: How do you suggest we do that?

Developer 13: Well, you wanted adventure, so venture forth.

Totally Awesome Dude: I’m not falling for that, again.

Developer 13: What are you talking about?  Didn’t I get you this far?  Didn’t I protect you against all those nasty Voids?

Totally Awesome Dude: Oh sure bring that up in my face.  I wasn’t scared.

Developer 13: TAD, just follow me and be ready to attack.

Totally Awesome Dude: Ok, but I don’t want to attack you, Dev.

Developer 13: On second thought, the door is that way, I have your back.

The two heroes made their way back to the mission door starting point.

Act: 3
Scene: 2
Exterior, run-down warehouse.

Developer 13:  We made it!

Void Stalker: Not so fast.  (fires weapon at Totally Awesome Dude)

Totally Awesome Dude: (falls to ground) Avenge my death!

Developer 13: (fires a sleep hold on the Void Stalker) TAD, get up, he missed you.

Totally Awesome Dude: (getting to his feet) I faked him out pretty good, don’t you think?

Developer 13: You were so scared; you better check your pants.

Totally Awesome Dude: Hey, I wasn’t scared; I merely dodged his attack.

Developer 13: You were so scared.  (Making chicken noises and doing the chicken dance)

Totally Awesome Dude: He startled me was all.  I wasn’t scared.

Developer 13: Yeah, startled you to the ground.

Totally Awesome Dude: I tripped over a rock, I just lost my footing for a second.

Developer 13: Yeah sure.

Totally Awesome Dude: So what do you want to do next, another radio mission?

Developer 13: Not with you, scaredy-cat.

Totally Awesome Dude: I wasn’t scared, I had something in my eye.

Void Stalker: (wakes, and fires at TAD) Are you scared now?

They all laughed

Act: Epilogue
Scene: 1
Interior, Totally Awesome Dude's Apartment.

Developer 13:  You have a nice place here, how much do you make?

Totally Awesome Dude: (wakes up) Hey put that down, that is an antique!

Developer 13: Sorry, how can you afford antiques?

Totally Awesome Dude: I got in on the ground floor of Super Fire Dragon Crunch.

Developer 13: Yeah, I almost went in on that myself, but I don't trust that Dragon.

Totally Awesome Dude: He's really nice, once you get to know him, and get past his sense of humor.

Developer 13: You're probably right, but according to Kolissa he is strictly a screwball.

Totally Awesome Dude: Well, anyway, what do you want to do now?

Developer 13: I was going to go run some more radio missions.

Totally Awesome Dude: Sounds great, when do you want to start?

Developer 13: You ain't coming.

Totally Awesome Dude: Why not?

Developer 13: You're a scaredy-cat.

Totally Awesome Dude: I wasn’t scared, I had something in my eye.

Act: Epilogue
Scene: 1 (continued)
Interior, Totally Awesome Dude's Apartment.

Totally Awesome Dude: Dev, we really do make a great team.

Developer 13: Yeah, they scare you and I put them to sleep.

Totally Awesome Dude: C’mon, I’m serious.

Developer 13: Look, a controller and … whatever you are.

Totally Awesome Dude: Peacebringer!  I was merged with a Kheldian and ….

Developer 13: (interrupting) Like I said, whatever you are, just isn’t enough DPS.

Totally Awesome Dude: What’s DPS?

Developer 13: Double Power Strokes.

Totally Awesome Dude: What does that mean?

Developer 13: Our team is too small, we can only attack a tiny group or single boss target.

Totally Awesome Dude: Well, we could invite more peeps.

Developer 13: Who do you know?

Totally Awesome Dude: Necrophillia.

Developer 13: Too Creepy.

Totally Awesome Dude: Super Fire Dragon.

Developer 13: Too Silly.

Totally Awesome Dude: Some Nut With A Gun.

Developer 13: Too Nutty.

Totally Awesome Dude: The Paragon Avenger.

Developer 13: Too Powerful

Totally Awesome Dude: Dr. Wos.

Developer 13: Too Confusing, is he a doctor or a scrapper, nobody knows.

Totally Awesome Dude: He’s a scrapper, and a very good one.  Dr. Wos is an anagram for sword.

Developer 13: Yeah, Too Confusing.  What’s an anagram anyway?

Totally Awesome Dude: A jumbled up word, how about Ice Mannix.

Developer 13: He’s busy being a father.

Totally Awesome Dude: Vince Dastardly.

Developer 13: Just, no.

Totally Awesome Dude: Rare Earth, Marshal Darkness.

Developer 13: No and no.

Totally Awesome Dude: What about The Fattinator.

Developer 13: No, he’s too big and he’s too yellow.

They all laughed

Act: Finale
Scene: 1
Exterior, Outside of Totally Awesome Dude's Apartment.

Totally Awesome Dude: Dev, it was great teaming with you.

Developer 13: Yeah, we’ll have to do it again sometime.

Totally Awesome Dude: You want to go out for a beer?

Developer 13: Thanks, but no thanks.  I have to ….

(Just then a Rikti transport ship appeared in the sky and Rikti started teleporting to the street below.)

Developer 13: Great, just great..

Totally Awesome Dude: Dev, why are you imitating Super Fire Dragon?

Developer 13: Look!  (Grabbing TAD by the shoulders and turning him around so he could see the Rikti teleporting in.)

Totally Awesome Dude: Tell me that there are other heroes around here.

Developer 13: TAD, it was nice knowing you.

Totally Awesome Dude: Dev, fighting Rikti is the only way to out.

(The two intrepid heroes battled the Rikti, in vain.)

THE END.
