Team Flux episode 1: A TUFF Escape.
Petropolis, March 5th 2013, 7:20pm
It was a rainy night in the city of Petropolis.
We then cut to inner section where Kitty Katswell, an anthromorphic tan furred cat woman with jet black hair and emerald green jumpsuit walked across the road looking depressed. Kitty sighed out of sadness as if something terrible had happened earlier. All of a sudden, Kitty froze as flash of light appeared on the upper side of the road where she was standing in the middle of. After three thunderous clash sounds, a High tech Car came out of the light at high speed and was approaching Kitty. The headlights of the car beamed upon Kitty as she gasped in horror witnessing it coming towards her. Then all of a sudden, just when the car reached Kitty, everything paused.
Kitty (Narrating): “Ok, you might be thinking “Oh, is this the part were the Cat lady Dies?”, well let’s just say that was the point where my whole life changed forever. Speaking of life, let me show you what mine was like before that moment.”
We then go back a couple years prior where Kitty is in the TUFF Mobile and is driving on an open freeway in Petropolis wearing sunglasses and her hair waving through the wind.
Kitty (Narrating): “Anyway, just to bring you up to speed, the name is Katswell. Kitty Katswell. I was the best and undoubtedly the most efficient secret agent of this organization called the “Turbo Undercover Fighting Force.”
A montage of Kitty solving cases, fighting villains, and signing autographs for children.
Kitty (Narrating): “I was the best investigator, the best fighter, and the best example for kids to look up to.”
Then we cut to Kitty in the TUFF Hall of Fame looking at a portrait of her father.
Kitty (Narrating): “In fact, My father worked for the organization and he too was the best in his time, which of course led me to following in his footsteps today.”
Cut to a newspaper headline showing news of Kitty’s father’s death.
Kitty (Narrating): “Unfortunately when I was young, he was murdered while on duty, And I have been trying to track the guy down ever since. And believe me, he’ll regret the day he messed with my family.”
We cut back to Kitty in the Car.
Kitty (Narrating): “But still, I have to be professional about my line of work. I’m sure that’s what dad would’ve wanted. But still, I wish I could say the same for the agency ever since a certain Puppy was recruited after he obliviously interfered with my mission to catch Snaptrap for stealing the Krugger Rat.”
A Montage of Good times and bad times Kitty had with Dudley.
Kitty (Narrating): “ But I’ve managed to grow used to Dudley’s company after a while, we had some good laughs and busted good crimes together. And other times, I’m usually the one who takes the blame and shots no thanks Dudley’s antics. And as if that wasn’t bad enough, TUFF seems to buy Dudley’s delusion that he’s the best agent. Sure I don’t mind Dudley having a little glory now and then, but I’m getting the feeling that everyone likes him more than me. Personally, I think his stupidity is rubbing of on TUFF and Petropolis alike. Even the villains are affected and they don’t take Anything seriously.”
Cut back to kitty in the TUFF Mobile.
Kitty (Narrating): “Anyway, that day was just any other day. I was on patrol and wouldn’t you know it, DOOM were causing trouble. Of course I was outnumbered, but I’ve delt with snaptrap and his goons countless times so it was a cake walk.”
Kitty pulls over to stop Snaptrap and his goons from robbing the Petropolis mall.
Kitty (Narrating): “Well at least it wasn’t a candy store that time.”
After battling DOOM all over the mall, Kitty apprehends them and had them took away to jail. Kitty drives up to TUFF HQ looking battered and beaten but victorious. Once she enters the Chief comes up looking rather pleased.
Chief: “And here’s our champion now!”
Kitty: “Oh, you heard about my triumph over DOOM? It was nothing, really. Just another day at work..”
Chief: “Not YOU. Him!”
The chief points at Dudley who opened a jar of mayonnaise and is dancing with Joy.
Dudley: “YAY! I GOT IT OPENED, I GOT IT OPENED, I GOT IT OPENED!”
The TUFF staff cheer and celebrate.
Keswick: “T-Th-Tha-Thank you Agent Puppy, it took us forever to get that jar opened.”
Chief: “To honour this achievement, Agent Puppy, I would like to award you the highest medal of honour.”
Kitty: “WHAT!? I busted 5 Villains and Dudley get awarded for opening a jar of mayonnaise? Oh Well, at least things can’t get any worse.”
Chief gives Dudley a medal. Kitty goes to her cubicle and notices that one of her medals is missing. She looks around but runs up to Kitty’s face and shows her his medal.
Dudley: “Hey Kitty, check out this awesome medal the chief gave me.”
Kitty looks at it and realise that it was one of Kitty’s old ones.
Kitty: “Hey that’s my medal!”
Dudley: “Duh, No it’s not! I’ve earned it. Get your priorities straight woman! Besides, I expected you to be happy for me”
Chief: “Actually, Agent Katswell’s right Agent Puppy. The award was short notice and we were running low on medals. I mean, you don’t mind right? It is an old one”
Kitty: “But that was from my first mission!.”
Chief: “Details, Details. Not for the other part of Dudley’s award.”
Kitty: “Oh what now.”
Chief: “We will not commemorate Dudley into the TUFF Hall of Fame.”
Kitty: “WHAT!? But I’ve been he longer than he has. How come he get’s his name on the wall and I don’t?”
The Chief ignores her.
Chief: Oh, that reminds me, we’re short on space on the wall. Which one should we take down.
Dudley: “OH, OH! How about that portrait!”
Dudley takes down the portrait which turns out to be Kitty’s Father.
Kitty: “Dudley! That’s my father’s portrait.”
After taking the portrait down, Dudley turns to face Kitty as he walks away with the portrait to put it elsewhere. But didn’t see the wire on the ground and ends up triping over it.
Dudley: “What, your father’s? Whoa!”
The portrait fell out of Dudley’s hands and land into the incinerator where it is set on fire.
Shocked with heartbreak, Kitty runs to the incinerator to get it, but it was too late. The portrait burned to ashes. Kitty goes down on her knees with her head down in sadness.
Dudley: “Kitty, are you alright”
Kitty’s sadness is turned to rage. Her eyes turned red and her fists are clinched.”
Kitty: “YOU IDIOT!!!”
Dudley falls to the ground.
Dudley (Nervous): “N-N-Now Now, Kitty. Let’s not do something we might regret.”
Kitty: “REGRET?! THE ONLY THING I REGRET WAS BEING FORCED TO PLAY SECOND BANANA TO AN UNDESERVING, PRETENTIOUS, THICK-HEADED SWINE LIKE YOU!!!
Keswick: “Whoa, whoa, Calm d-do-dow-down Agent Katswell. Remember that talk we had about forgiving and forgetting.”
Kitty: “OH SURE, LIKE THAT EVER WORKS!!! IF IT WEREN‘T FOR THAT, WE WOULD NEVER HAVE FALLEN FOR QUACKY THE DUCK‘S TRICK!!! YOU MAYBE A SCIENTIST, BUT YOU HAVE A REAL HARD TIME LEARNING FROM MISTAKES,PAL!!!.”
Chief: “Agent Kastwell! What’s gotten into you all of a sudden?”
Kitty (Calmly): “Oh, you wanna know? I’ll Tell you. In fact I have a better idea.
Kitty gets a microphone out and begins to speak her mind to TUFF.
Kitty: “Listen up, everyone at TUFF, Cause I’ve got a lot of things I wanna get off my chest. All my life, all I ever wanted to do….was to be a secret agent, to be a hero, and to save lives like my father. I have worked tirelessly during my 8 years in secret agency college learing the advances and the basics of espionage, even travelling all over the world to learn all the languages and fighting styles. After graduating, I finally got the chance to put my knowledge and skill to good use when TUFF called me and offer me a job, and man did I have a good run, even without Jack Rabbit. But then HE appeared (pointing at Dudley) and everything fell apart for me. Ever since Dudley got recruited, this whole agency became like a circus. And with me being the only sane person, I get constantly abused and insulted. I’ve even been called names by childish ne’er-do-wells. Names like “Boring-lady”, “Mean-lady” and “Unfunny Sidekick”. And to add Injury to insult (Literary) I get but in harms way, and end up the crash dummy for Dudley’s antic’s. Well guess what, I am SICK of the abuse, I am SICK of the stupidity, I am SICK of lame super villains, ungrateful muffin-obsessed citizens, slapstick accidents, and most of all I’m SICK of all of you here at TUFF who prefer an incompetant loud mouth like Dudley instead of a hardworking agent like me. I used to have compassion for all of you, but now you’ve ruined it. Well you can keep your crummy job, because I don’t want it any more.”
Kitty walks towards the door. She takes out her TUFF agent badge and tosses it to the ground.
Kitty: “In layman’s terms; I QUIT!!!”
Kitty storms out the door and leaves.
Dudley: “Kitty, KITTY WAIT!”
Just when Dudley was about to reach the door, without looking back, Kitty slams the door on Dudley Face, flattening it. Kitty walks out into the streets resisting to urge to cry. Thunder claps and it starts to rain. After an hour of walking, She finally made it the district where her apartment was, but before she could cross the road, a high tech car comes out of a flashing light towards kitty.
Kitty (Narrating): “And here we are folks, right back were we started. Moving right along.”
Kitty jumps out of the way of the car. The car skids out of control and rams right into a lamp post. Kitty get up on her feet and runs towards the crashed car.
Kitty: “A Delorean? Weren’t they discontinued 20 years ago? Huh, Wait a minute.”
Kitty looks in through the left side door window and sees a figure with a wavy brown mullet hairstyle and wearing a high school retro style bomber jacket, jeans and red Hi tops. The young male figure’s face was covered by the steering wheel, which his head crash onto.
Kitty; “Oh my gosh, He’s hurt! I better bring him in.”
Later, the young man named Marty McFly wakes up in a bed and spots a shadowed figure standing next to him in the dark. Marty is dizzy from the car accident.
Marty: “M-Mom? That you?”
A silhouette of Kitty rubs a wet cloth on Marty’s forehead
Kitty: “There, there now. Take it easy. You‘ve been asleep for almost an hour now.”
Marty: “I had this nightmare. I dreamed that I went forward in time. It was terrible.”
Kitty: “Well, You’re safe and sound now, back in good old 2013”
Marty quickly opens his eyes in shock.
Kitty switches on the light meeting Marty face to face.
After a few seconds of silence.
Kitty and Marty: “AAAAAAAAGGGGGHHHH!”
Marty falls out of bed. Kitty jumps backwards and grabs her blaster and aims it at Marty. Marty Flinches in fear.
Marty: “No! Please don’t kill me! Oh, please God, don’t kill me! ”
Kitty looks down at the brown mullet haired young human male flinching in fear. Kitty takes slight pity.
Kitty: “Alright, kid. Who are you? WHAT are you?”
Marty: “I take it you’ve never seen a human before?”
Kitty: “Human? Nope, Can‘t say I‘ve ever seen your species before. You’re the first one I’ve ever seen.”
Marty: “Well, I’ve never seen a Cat woman before. Only in comic books. Look I‘m not gonna hurt you. I swear. Just please put the gun down.”
Kitty puts down the blaster and sits down on her bed.
Kitty: “You’re not from here, aren’t you? That flash on the road, was that some kind of portal?”
Marty: “You’re not far off. I’m Marty by the way, uh, Marty McFly. I’m a time traveller.”
Kitty: “Well that makes sense. My name’s Kitty Katswell. Agent Kitty Katswell. Or at least I was.”
Marty: “Wait, “Kitty Katswell” you say.”
Kitty: “Uh Yeah, Why?”
Marty: “Doc sent me to look for you here while I was testing out his new Delorean time machine.”
Kitty; “What are you talking about?”
Marty: “ It’s a long story. Where’ the car?”
Kitty: “I hid it in the alley beside my apartment Building.”
Marty: “I think I can get a transmission from Doc from inside it, He’ll explain everything to you. Come on.”
Marty gets out of bed, and quickly realized that he’s standing in front of Kitty in his underwear. Embarrassed, He cover’s himself with Kitty’s Bed sheet. Kitty blushes and smirks as she tosses Marty’s jeans over to Marty.
Kitty: “Yeah, but you might want to cover up first, big boy.”
Marty: “Yeah, thanks (!)”
Marty tries to put his pants back on, but Kitty staring at him causes Marty to fall backwards. This makes Kitty giggle.
What will happen next, Has Kitty found a new friend? Will Kitty find a new destiny in time travel? How will Marty get Back home? Stay tuned for the next chapter!
