Team Flux episode 1: A TUFF Escape Chapter 2

In the alley outside Kitty’s apartment building, Kitty and Marty walk up to the half damaged Delorean. Marty opens the winged door to reveal the interior of the Time Machine.

Kitty:  “So this friend of yours designed all this from scratch?”

Marty:  “Yep. Time travel has been Doc’s dream ever since he came up with this little baby.”

Marty points at a box behind the seats which includes glowing wiring in the shape of a “Y”.

Kitty: “What is it?”

Marty:  “The Flux Capacitor. The very thing that allows this car to transport through time. Only Doc knows how it works.”

Kitty: “How did he come up with that?”

Marty: “A while ago, He was hanging a clock in his bathroom and he slipped off a toilet and knocks his head on a sink.”

Kitty: (Astonished) “You’re kidding me, right.”

Marty tries to fix some wiring on the driver console.

Marty: “No, it’s true. I saw the bruise on his head when I went back to the day he got it.”

Kitty: (Confused) “Right.”

Marty finishes fixing a screen.

Marty: “There, that should do it. Let’s see if I can contact him.”

Marty turns a dial to adjust a communication level.

Marty: “Doc? Doc, it’s Marty! Can you hear me?”

The screen picture distorts for a few seconds but and older voice replies to
Marty’s call.

Doc: “Marty! I can hear you. Just one sec. See if I can-aha!”

The screen becomes clears as it reveals the face of an elderly scientist with messy long white hair and wearing a lab coat.

Doc: “Marty! Thank god you’re molecular structure is still formed in one complete mass! Are you ok?”

Marty: “Yeah, I fine Doc. That cross dimensional displacement thingy of yours worked, and I think I’m in some kind of world that’s filled by human like animals.”

Doc: “Perfect! Then the test is complete. According to my calculations, you should be in in the city of Petropolis in a dimension where the population is inhabited by anthromorphic animals. Did you manage to find Agent Kitty Katswell?”

Marty: “Well why don’t you ask her yourself.”

Marty brings in Kitty.

Marty: “Doc, this is Kitty, Kitty this is Doc.”

Kitty (confused): “Uhhh…Hi, nice to me! You must be Marty’s friend.”

Doc: “Holy Bovine! An anthromorphic Felis catus life form! And she talks too! Amazing! In all my years, I never thought there’d be intelligent life beyond our region of the universe-- Oh sorry where are my manners.  Ahem!  I’m Doctor Emmett Brown, noted scientist, inventor and time travel specialist. Tell me, are you familiar with cross dimensional and temporal displacement?”

Kitty: “Well…the closest I’ve seen was a Time Travel stop watch made by the scientist from the agency I used to work for. But of course a certain somebody tried to used it to time travel back 2 minutes to get a doughnut from the snack room before it got eaten.”

Doc: “Well….That’s close enough. Some of the people you mention sound as if they don’t take time travel seriously.”

Kitty (looking back angrily at the TUFF HQ in the business): “Believe me, that’s not the only thing they never take seriously. Wait, why were you looking for me?”

Doc: “It’s a long story, but I’ll explain once you and Marty make it back to the Institute.”

Kitty: “The institute?”

Marty; “Don’t worry, It’s not what you think. Doc here owns a scientific research facility called “The Institute of Future Technology.” It’s a place that specialises in the creation of technologies used to advance mankind’s future living.”

Kitty: “Wow, sounds fascinating. But ME going to YOUR Dimension? I don’t know, it’s seems kinda sudden. What would happen if people found out I was gone?”

Doc: “Don’t worry, our time machine can take you back to any last departed time and dimension instantaneously. Once you return, it will be like you never left.”

Kitty: “Okay, but what if some people were to miss me?”

Kitty looks across the street at a muffin stand.

Customer: “AH! Nothing like a muffin for lunch. They don’t call it “Comfort Food” for nothing ya know.”

Stall keeper: “Yeah, between you and me, I needed that kinda comfort when that Katswell chick blew up our muffins Snaptrap gave us. Sheesh what a schmuck she is.”

Customer:  “Yeah, thinkin’ she’s smarter than all of Petropolis put together. I wouldn’t miss her if she went in a time machine and disappeared.”

This make Kitty a little agitated.

Kitty: “Count me in! (Mutters) I wouldn’t miss these ungrateful hypocrites either.”

Doc: “That’s great! We’ll rendezvous in my lab.”
Marty: “Well that might be a problem Doc. The Mr Fusion chamber got ruined when I crash after landing. I guess for now, there’s no way I can use trash to power this baby up anymore.”

Doc: “Great Scott! Without the necessary 1.21 Giggawatt electronic energy, you’ll be stranded in that dimension, confronted by god knows what!”
Marty: (resisting the urge to panic) “Uh.…Okay, how about some good news.”

Doc: “Hold on let me think.”

Doc check’s a computer system which specialises in graphically demonstrating past present and future events depending on the location, time and dimensional where and when abouts of Marty’s Delorean. He observes future weather conditions of the Petropolis area.

Doc: “AHA! That’s it! According to your Delorean’s temporal and cross dimensional environmental terrain scanner, there should be a lightning storm coming to Petropolis. Remember your departure from 1955? Well you could try to harness the lightning in order to recharge the Flux Capacitor and transport back home. The trouble is, is that the lightning will strike the highest antenna in the city in exactly 12 o’clock midnight.”

Marty: “Well there’s a Cinderella story for ya.”

Kitty: “Are you sure? The weather reports from here said it would be clear skies tonight.”

Marty: “Hey, since when can weather men predict the weather? Let alone the future.”

Kitty: “Good point.”

Marty: “But Doc, where the hell am I gonna find an antenna big that’s enough?”

Kitty then realises that Petropolis’s tallest antenna was on TUFF HQ itself. This provided Kitty an idea.

Kitty: “That’s it!”

Marty: “What’s it”

Kitty: “The TUFF HQ building has a radio transmission antenna and it’s practically the largest one in Petropolis.”

Doc: “Of Course! That could work! Marty, you’ll need an extensive electro wire for the setup, not to mention an attachable hook to absorb the bolt’s energy. And if you can harness the lightning using hook while accelerating to 88 mph towards the side of the building, you’ll be instantaneously transported back to Hill Valley.”

Marty: “10-4, Doc! I’ll get right to it.”

Doc: “Good. Now hurry, you don’t have much time! Good luck, and be careful.”

Marty; “Don’t worry, Doc. I’ll be home soon. Marty out.”

Marty switches off the communication system. Kitty and Marty are unaware that someone is eavesdropping on them while hiding in a trashcan in the ally. It was Lizzy McDinga, an Australian huntress Dingo.

Lizzy: (talking sinisterly through a cell phone) “I’ve found ‘em, mate. I’ll see to it that their little trip will be cancelled.”

GASP! A SPY!?  Will Marty and Kitty make it in time for the midnight lightning bolt in order to get back to Hill Valley? Or will this Mysterious Lizzie make her mark? Stay tuned Team Flux Fans!

I cant believe those ingrets in Petropiles...
HeartlessSlayer Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2013
I can actually picture Christopher Lloyd speaking those lines as Doc Brown as I read this, I gotta say, for a cross over project, you really know how to keep everyone in character but still keep the story interesting! ^^
BreakoutKid Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, I kinda wanted to base Doc on both Films and Animated series counterparts to make him hilariously authentic.

I'm actually going to have the events happen the next day after Kitty left TUFF so that it leaves a whole day for Kitty and Marty to fix the car, talk to Doc, humiliate Snaptrap, sneak into TUFF HQ and harness the lightning from the antenna on the roof by midnight.

Again, any more ideas, fire away!
HeartlessSlayer Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2013
Well for about ideas, whenever you get the chance, send me a note so we can talk about it as I like to hear what else you had planned ^^

You know I've been thinking about making a couple fanfics with Team Flux
BreakoutKid Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist

What kind?
TheJayster49 Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
One will involve Sonic, Tails, and Dr. Eggman helping out Team Flux with Raccoon City (along with the Sonic gang reuniting with Earthworm Jim)

The other will involve Team Flux going back to different periods of Sonic's washed up life and Kitty's T.U.F.F Life

Awesome Kev!!

Our captain seem really happy to get out from her home,after they never respected her.she did the right thing of helping Marty and the doc.
BreakoutKid Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks. ^^

And trust me, this episode's about to get a lot more interesting. ;)
TheDogwhitaTail Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
No prob bro. ^^

Can't wait!.;)
TUFFAgentShepherd Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2013  Student Artist
Really nice, man. ^^

Kitty really seems eager to get outta Petropolis, and to the Institute to help Doc and Marty. And, uh-oh, Lizzy's ready to make her mark. Will they make it out in time?

What am I sayin'? Of course they will. :B
BreakoutKid Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks. ^^

Yeah I thought it would be funny to give the audience a brief recap of why she wanted to leave Petropolis.

Trust me, Lizzy ain't making no mark as long as the newly formed Team Flux is around. Plus I'd just like to see Lizzy outshoot Tennessee Kid Cooper. ;)

I've also been thinking that Kitty could confront DOOM (who just escaped prison after getting arrested earlier the same morning) who were committing another crime. Snaptrap would tell her that they heard her quitting TUFF and start to make fun of her. Marty would come out of the car and sucker punch Snaptrap for bullying Snaptrap while accidentally exposing himself to them. This would then lead to the hover board chase around the city square.

What do you think?
TUFFAgentShepherd Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2013  Student Artist
Yup. Worked like a charm. ;)

I'd say Tennessee's gonna out-gun Lizzy. Heck, I bet she can't even out-gun Ricochet Rabbit. ;)

Ah, Snaptrap bullying Kitty, eh? As much as I hate to see Kitty get bullied, it's a perfect way for Marty to stand up for her, and instigate that chase scene. ;)
BreakoutKid Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I knew it would. ^^

I bet she couldn't beat Marty at a game of Wild Gunman. :)

Yeah, I figured you wouldn't like the idea of Kitty being bullied. But this would give Kitty another opportunity to see how Marty cared for her after hearing her sad lifestory despite being top notch secret agent. Heck, as sappy as it sounds, it would seem that Marty wished he was there for her.

Plus that cheapshot Marty layed on to Snaptrap would also be a good motivation to catch Marty as well as wanting to sell him for god knows what.
TUFFAgentShepherd Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2013  Student Artist
Yeah, totally. ^^

This would be the turning point for Kitty. It's time she showed that dirty rat what she's truly capable of. ;)

The chase is STILL gonna have a "shitty" ending, though. ;)
