The Dumblr Saga, Part Two: Don't Drink the Kool'Aid!

Part One: http://brikwars.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=15387

Location: Some colorful dive bar in the seedy outer rim

Image

ZM: Jesus Christ on a bicycle, I need a drink. Everything fuckin’ hurts.

Image

ZM: Maybe I can get the latest news in here too, I don’t even know what day it is.

Image

HPxD111: A seedy dive bar? This isn’t going to end well. I’d better get in there.

Image

Image

Zurgo Memesmasher enters the bar. The only other patrons pay little attention to the newcomer; they’re well into a night of drinking.

Image

Memesmasher pulls a flask of odd orange liquid out of his cloak and begins drinking. The bartender is nowhere in sight.


Marcus: And that’s why I never let authorities pat me down.

John Ferros: Ha! That’sh quite a shhtory! Hey, did I ever tell you ‘bout the time I killed all of them peaches?

Alan Ryder: Only everytime we go drinking.

John: It was great! I shlaughtered their disgusting, peachy butts and left ‘em to dry!

Marcus: And then you rose through the ranks of the military, and now you’re the Captain of the Imperial Frontier Division, yeah we know.

Image

ZM: Slaughtered peaches… Racism… genocide.. Augh, my head… uuuuuuuuuugh…

John: Huh?

ZM, shaking his head as if clearing it: You’re a piece of scum, you know that? What kind of shit kills a bunch of innocent people and then brags about it?

John: You got a problem, friend?

Image

ZM: You know, I think we do.

Marcus: Uh oh, this ain’t good.

Alan: Eh, don’t worry about it. John’ll be fine.

Image

Captain Ferros stands up and adjusts his fedora, not looking at all drunk, then draws his chainsword.

John: I don’t like problems. Let's take care of this here and now.
ZM: Let’s go then.

Image

John swings before either of his friends can blink, but his opponent moves even faster, ducking under the buzzing sword without spilling a drop of his drink. In the process, his hood is thrown back, and Alan and Marcus gasp.

Alan and Marcus: Fedora!?

The word seems to trigger something in ZM, and he tumbles backwards, completely off balance.

Image

Marcus: It is Fedora! I’d recognize that face anywhere!

Alan: Boss! Where have you been? Why are you dressed like that?

John: And what the hell are you drinking? I’ve never seen that served here.

Alan: Shit, that’s Kool’Aid! John, quick, knock him out!

Image

Thwack! John strike’s ZM’s temple with the hilt of his sword, and he’s out cold.

Alan: Let’s take him back to my ship, I have a detox station.

Marcus: No, that’s in too public of an area. It wouldn’t be good for you two to be seen together; just because you're governments aren’t at war doesn’t mean their friends. Besides, a detox station won’t be enough. I’ve got the best damn doctor in the galaxy, take him to my ship.

Image

Alan and John drag ZM out of the bar, while Marcus follows. HPxD111 emerges from the shadows.

HPxD111: Ah damn, that can’t be good.

Image

*Ring Ring Ring*

???: HP! What’s up?

HPxD111: We’ve got a problem. The target went into a bar, and overheard a disturbing conversation. His programming worked and he tried to fight for justice, but apparently the people he got in a fight with knew him.

???: Oh?

HP: Yeah, it was Captain John Ferros of the Avokhan Empire, Captain Alan Ryder of the Republik of Independent Planets, and the smuggler Marcus Laurence. They called our mutual friend “Fedora” and it fried his brain or something. They knocked him out and dragged him away, there wasn’t anything I could do.

???: That’s a tough crowd. Good you stayed back, or you might not be talkin’ to me. Don’t worry my dude, we’ll get this fixed up. You just follow those three hooligans to wherever they go and report back to me.

HP: Got it boss.

Thanks! I'm not entirely happy with it though, the symbol came out too small for my taste. He's the captain of said mercenaries, Who will hopefully get some more action in the future.

Thats a bum. Maybe remake them and make the symbol bigger on the laptop so when you print it it comes out smaller??

Action!? Oh yeah!
