I'm updating much earlier this time since the last chapter sort of took THREE DAMNED MONTHS to finish. Le sigh... I'm still so sorry about that, I am. D: Since my life is sort of getting back to being, well, somewhat better again (and my birthday was last month), I decided to finally get back to work and make this chapter.
Anyways, read and enjoy the Aftermath chapter! It is an Aftermath one since it was a double elimination last chapter.
I hope Total Drama: Revenge of the Island goes well. In my opinion, the last two seasons were as disappointing as hell. Heh, at least some of the characters are pretty cool - I like Dawn, Jo, Anne Maria (Jersey Shore lolz), Dakota, B, and Brick. I really hate Staci and Cameron. :I Scott's one of those love hate characters, if that makes any sense at all.
The Dragon 1000: Ah ha, well, it really is a long story. You'll have to tell me when your private messaging works again, and I'd tell you the full story - I'd rather not post the whole thing where ANYONE could read it, you see... ^^;
EvanescenceAngel: Sheesh, tell me about it. I'm just not a lucky person, huh? :/
DoktorK: Don't worry, it wasn't all that rude. I usually make up challenges on the spot (hence why they're all stupid, ha ha) if that's any consolation.
mythologyrulz: I WISH they did... and then I could make my friends Zack and Ray love each other. xD It would be interesting, right? :D
And a special shout out to Red Icewater, Lilleth Smith, and Dark Punxysaur for writing fanfics for Total Drama Blainerific. It's quite humbling to have authors willing to write fanfics for your fanfiction - all I can say is thank you all, a ton. :3
Disclaimer: I don't own Total Drama Island, Total Drama Action, Total Drama World Tour, or Total Drama: Revenge Of The Island. I only own this shitty fanfic and a handful of OC's.
The Aftermath show theme music begins to play as various clips throughout the show appeared on the screen: Bridgette waving goodbye to her friends from the Boat of Losers; Christoph and Lindsay patching things up on the Boat of Losers; and Coriander being fired, and thusly dragged away from the Island. The letters 'TDB' appeared on the screen as well as 'Aftermath' underneath it.
Jacky and Frances sat on the host's couch, although a good distance away from each other. "Hello, people of Earth, Mars, Jupiter, and the freaks in Mississippi! (1) We're coming to you live from the Aftermath studio of Total Drama Blainerific, here in Ontario, Canada!" Jacky greeted, dressed in the formal outfit that consisted of her tight black dress that reached to her ankles, black heels, gold earrings, and pulled back hair. "I'm your host, Jacky Smith!" Her smile quickly became considerably colder. "And this," she said quietly, "is my co-host, Frances Worthington."
For the most brief of moments, Frances flinched at her cold tone, but quickly regaind his arrogant and rude stance. "Thank you for the introduction, Jackaline." He said formally, fiddling with the tie on his light grey tuxedo.
"Joining us today at the Aftermath are the contestants that, if you've been watching this season regularly, you already know of! We have our resident perv, Alan Brooks - "
Alan winked at the audience from up in the bleachers, where he sat by Leola and Jaydee.
" - our silent and artistic friend Chase Longogia - "
Chase quickly wrote a card that said "Hello" to the audience. Bailey sat beside him, resting her head against his shoulder.
" - punk girl number one, Jaydee Parker - "
Jaydee, at her spot between Alan and Leola, blew a kiss to the audience, her grin still present on her face.
" - punk girl number two, and Wiccan to boot, Rosalind Hex - "
Rosalind sat by Gwen, Bridgette, and Adam, waving at the audience.
" - our kind animal lover, DJ Kensing - "
DJ simply smiled, sitting next to Katie and Sadie.
" - our resident BFFFl, Katie Sanchez - "
Katie, as previosly stated, was sitting next to Sadie. She and her best friend waved enthusiastically at the cameras.
" - our favorite female New Yoka - wow, I fail at the New York accent - Delia Connors - "
Delia smiled and waved, showing off her new pink nail polish.
" - the tomboy skateboarder, Bailey Foxx - "
Bailey, who was resting her head against Chase's shoulder, grinned and waved.
" - our psychotic firework lover, Calvin, whose last name we don't know - "
Calvin, who was sitting by Izzy, tossed handfuls of confetti ("Dammit Calvin, watch where you're tossing that!" Draco complained) in the air.
"It's because my family couldn't afford to get me a middle or a last name." Calvin joked.
" - the musician of many talents, Ben Smith - "
Ben waved, a slightly gloomy smile on his face. The fangirls never questioned the man's ability to both smolder and be cold at the same time.
" - our latest addition to the show, Draco McLine - "
Draco winked at the ladies in the audience, albeit looking a little silly as he did so with Calvin's confetti in his hair.
" - the devoted and kind hearted punk, Wolfgang LaFleur - "
Wolfgang, who was comically sitting by Draco, nodded to the cameras.
" - our favorite crazy girl, Izzy Reyun - "
Izzy, still at Calvin's side, was tossing confetti into the air as well. Oh God, what would it be like if they had kids?
" - our gloomy Goth, Gwen Carter - "
Gwen sheepishly waved, sitting by Ben, Adam, and Rosalind.
" - our number one prankster, Adam McLine - "
Adam did an army salute to the girls in the audience, adding a wink to the routine. Draco and Wolfgang rolled their eyes.
" - and our lesbian musician, Leola Ringer!"
Leola, still sitting by Jaydee, flipped off Frances with a cheerful smile.
Frances scowled, but what else is new?
Jacky beamed. "Now, I know that as tradition calls, we normally wait for three episodes before doing an Aftermath, but the last episode was definitely stranger than normal. Since it was a double elimination, Blaineley decided to bump up the Aftermath to now. I normally don't mind waiting, but I love hosting the Aftermath, so here we are!"
The audience clapped, except for the man that was Wolfgang's fan. "FRANCES IS AN ASSHOLE! YOU! DESERVE! BETTTTTER!"
Everyone was silent, Jacky looking on the ground in embarrassment and Frances looking to the side, hiding the expression on his face to everyone.
Then the silence ended - "You ASSHOLE! Shut UP!"
The smack was heard everywhere.
Jacky cleared her throat. "Erm, moving on... so, a lot of stuff has happened this past two episodes, even if it was only two. We had a brief but intense fight between two good friends - "
A few clips showing of Bunifa and Zakk arguing with each other.
" - a series of events that will undoubtedly traumatize the campers for all eternity - "
A few clips showed of the campers' varying grief during the Final Destination challenge.
" - three more victims were added to Briana's knockout list - "
The clips of Bridgette's, Christoph's, and Lindsay's eliminations played.
" - the last of the original Total Drama campers left - "
The previous clips stayed on the screen.
" - Chstioph and Lindsay got jealous when the other two formed friendships as a result of the Final Destination challenge - "
Clips of Christoph and Briana's friendship, and Lindsay and Richard's, showed on the screen, as well as signs of obvious jealousy between the boyfriend and girlfriend.
" - Briana and Emily finally got together - "
The clip of Briana and Emily's first kiss played on the screen.
" - Blaineley got scolded, on live TV, by one of The Producers - "
A clip of Blaineley's phone conversation with Miss Henderson showed on the screen.
" - the guys were love drugged, and creating many a one sided love triangle - "
Clips of Lucian's, Christoph's, Zakk's, and Richard's love drugged feelings for the girls showed on the screen.
" - and Blaineley FINALLY got rid of Coriander!"
The clip of Coriander being dragged away by Chef Hatchet was played on the screen, followed by loud enthusiasm from, well, practically everyone. Even Frances had a slight smirk.
"We're finally at the Final Eight, everyone! We're all rooting for either Zakk - "
A photo of him appeared on the screen.
" - Bunifa Latifa Halifa Sharifa Karifa - "
A photo of her appeared.
" - Richard - "
A photo of him appeared.
" - Angie - "
A photo of her appeared.
" - Briana..."
A photo of her appeared on the screen.
" - Lucian - "
Lucian's photo appeared on the screen, standing proudly next to the others'.
" - Samantha - "
A photo of her appeared.
" - or Emily!"
Emily's photo joined the others on the screen, all in the order of when they were announced.
"Everybody, we have to really give them a round of applause for making it this far." Jacky smiled.
Everyone complied, except for one man in the audience. "WOLFGANG SHOULD BE IN THE FINAL EIGHT! NOT! THAT! BITCH! BRIANAAAAAAAAA!"
Jacky groaned. "Sir, please... stop." Her statement was drowned out by a louder one, however -
"WOULD YOU SIT DOWN AND SHUT THE HELL UP?"
"I THOUGHT THIS WAS A FREE COUNTRY! I-I CAN SAY WHATEVER I WANT!"
"Harvey, sit DOWN!"
Everyone was silent as a resounding smack was heard throughout the studio.
Jacky cleared her throat. "Moving on... as most of you know, it's now time for That's Gonna Leave A Mark!" Her smile disappeared, and was covered with a look of both cold politeness and malice, as she turned to Frances. "Would you please play the clips?"
Frances scowled back at her. "Of course."
Jacky turned back to the audience. "Now, we here all figured that even if funny groin shots, face slaps, or what not happened during the Final Destination themed challenge, it would be cruel and unusual to play them, considering what the challenge contained. SOOOO, we found three fun scenes, during the episode, that all happened to..." She smirked. "Coriander!"
The audience cheered.
"The episode after that, well, that will continue as normal. Roll it!"
*Beginning of Footage*
Coriander is seen bragging to Chef about some "marvelous" achievement of his. Chef Hatchet finally gets sick of this, then grabs a frying pan and slapping Coriander in the face with it. Coriander goes down with an angry bruise on his cheek. -Final Destination: TD
As Coriander walks off to get Blaineley her latte, he decides to hit on the intern, the scene girl Dakota, on the way. She kicks him in the nuts. The gossipy intern, Rosalia, takes a picture and forwards it to all of the other interns. -Final Destination: TD
Coriander is walking under under a tree, eating an apple and holding an ice pack to his bruised cheek, when he trips over a tree root and falls on his face. -Final Destination: TD
Lindsay is chewing on the marshmallow boxing gloves when she accidentally bites down on her knuckle. "Owwie!" Unfortunately, no one hears, as Blaineley is too busy explaining the challenge. -The Love Blaineley
Angie notices two squirrels playing with each other as she's walking to the track. "Awwww..." She cooes, as she loves animals. She's so lost in her own world, she runs into a tree face first. -The Love Blaineley
Lucian is walking with Samantha to the Mess Hall when he sees a tall tree, and tries to impress her by climbing up it. "Lucian, that's a really bad idea!" Samantha calls to him. Lucian ignores him, placing his foot on a branch to get up there. Unfortunately, the branch breaks beneath his weight and he falls to the ground, taking a different branch to the groin in the process. Samantha cringes. -The Love Blaineley
*End of Footage*
The audience and the Peanut Gallery are seen laughing.
"Now, because it just wouldn't be That's Gonna Leave A Mark! without it, we found footage for ANOTHER camper, even though he's already been eliminated..."
Adam pales. "Don't tell me..."
Jacky beams. "Roll it!"
*Beginning of Footage*
Adam looks enthusiastically at the swings that Blaineley provided for the Playa de Losers. "Seriously? This is AWESOME!" He gets on a swing, gradually going higher and highter and higher, kicking forward until his shoe accidentally flies off. Instead of going down, it goes up and knocks Adam right in the forehead. -Bonus Footage
*End of Footage*
The audience is laughing even more now, while Adam is blushing a beet red color. Draco decided to make him feel even worse and imitate the action.
Wolfgang scowled at Draco. "Not cool, dude."
Frances raised a brow. "Wolfgang sticking up for Adam. Will wonders never cease?"
Jacky ignored him. "Onto the next tradition of the Aftermath show, we interview the eliminated contestants! Our first eliminated contestant is a surfing vegetarian, passionate for animal rights, and possibly in love with Gwen - "
A voice rang out from behind the curtains - "UGH! For the last time, we don't like each other that way!"
Gwen smirked and called out, "But, sweetie! Don't deny our love!"
" - please welcome Bridgette Lake!"
The blonde surfer walked out from behind the curtain, sticking her tongue out playfully at Gwen as she joined Frances and Jacky.
"You wish that I was in love with you, Gwen." Bridgette teased.
"Oh babe, you know I do." Gwen rolled her eyes, smiling with her friend.
Bridgette put on a look of fake shock. "Oh, whatever shall our poor Lucian say? You're going to break his heart, you know."
Jacky grinned. "Bridge, it seems like you've been settling in here nicely! No ill effects from being eliminated, hopefully?"
"Besides tearing up any picture of Briana I see and kicking myself in the pants for not seeing her true self sooner, especially when I knew what she did to you?" Bridgette sighed. "I was so stupid to confront her like that - I should have known she would, somehow, get me eliminated in her place." She groaned.
Jacky patted her on the back. "There, there. A lot of us here know how you feel."
All of the people eliminated by Briana - Delia, Bailey, Wolfgang, Adam, and Leola all raised their hands.
"We were all in the same boat you are right now, Bridgette." Delia said softly. "Just think! Briana will epically get what's coming to her, and then WE can all take our revenge." She clapped her hands cheerfully at the thought, receiving some odd looks from Ben and DJ.
Bailey cracked her knuckles, standing up from her spot beside Chase. "Sounds fun to me..."
"I may not have been a victim, but her tactics are underhanded and dirty." Ben said, an angry look on his face. "Emily should have better than that. Briana needs to go down."
Rosalind looked slightly sad, looking up at Ben. "Briana's not all that bad... I mean," she added quickly as she faced all of the angry looks from the others, "she's got to have some good qualities, right?"
Ben snorted. "Obviously something, if Emily can put up with her."
Jacky cleared her throat. "Anyway, since I have to ask, is there anyone left you're rooting for in the competition?"
Bridgette tapped her chin. "Well... I'd have to say... Angie, Emily, or Samantha. They're all really good friends, either one of them should win."
Adam stood up immediately. "Oh, Bridgette! I-I'm supporting them too! I-I really hope they win, you know like you do!"
Frances snickered. "Dumbass."
Bridgette smiled. "Really? Even after what Angie did to you? You're so sweet."
Adam blushed, smiling like an idiot. "Heh heh, what'd she do again...?"
Jacky looked thoughtful for a moment. "So, I got to ask - and, I know this isn't one of the normal questions - but, you had your suspicions for a little while about Briana, right?"
Bridgette nodded. "If only I had acted on those said suspicions sooner... but yes, I did."
"So, did you ever have any suspicions about Angie?" Jacky asked.
Bridgette frowned. "After Adam was eliminated, I noticed changes in her. I mean, she and I don't talk that much, but I know enough about her to know that that wasn't how she normally acts. Being sad over having someone you care about get eliminated is one thing, but to feel guilty about it... that was weird. I didn't know that she had partnered up with Briana, necessarily, or had anything to do with her, but I knew that something was wrong, too."
Jacky nodded. "Do you think that anyone else might know anything about Briana?"
Bridgette shook her head. "If anyone knows anything about her, they haven't shared their suspicions with me. As far as I know, Briana has everyone except for Angie convinced that she's a good person."
Jacky looked at the clock. "Okay, since we only have so much time we're allowed on the Aftermath show, we have to wrap your interview up and move on to Christoph and Lindsay. But, do you have anything else to say before you join your friends at the Peanut Gallery?"
"Only that I hope that Briana's cover is blown soon. And that she doesn't make it any farther than she already has." Bridgette said solemnly.
The audience clapped for the surfer as she sat down beside Gwen, Ben, Adam, and Rosalind. Adam smiled a little dreamily at her, while Gwen exchanged a hug with her friend.
"Now, let's all give a warm round of applause for our next two guests, please welcome Lindsay Blake and Christoph Farbos!"
The audience cheered as Lindsay and Christoph walked out from behind the green curtain, holding hands and waving at the audience at the same time. The two sat down on the guest's couch.
"Welcome, guys! It's great to see you here!" Jacky paused. "Or, for some of us, for the second time..." She laughed.
Lindsay was playing with her hair, then looked up after several seconds of being stared at. "Hmm, what?"
Frances scowled. "If we were anxious to get Bridgette off the stage to continue the interview, why did we just waste some of that time on staring at the blonde girl?"
Jacky glared at him. "For your information, Worthington, it was only thirty seconds."
Everyone looked startled at Jacky's use of Frances's last name, rather than his first. Frances had used her last name - several times - but to hear her say it was unknown to, well, everyone at the studio.
"Oh, so you bothered to count? Seems like a waste of time, either way." Frances sneered.
"You really are an... an ass, you know that?" Jacky declared, crossing her arms at him.
This time, everyone did gasp. Jacky and Frances exchanged banter, but that was completely unexpected.
"Woah..." Jaydee said, she and Leola exchanging a glance.
"Seriously?" Ben raised a brow, looking up at the two.
Lindsay and Christoph blinked.
Frances looked startled... enough that he didn't regain his focus on the show, or his normally cool demeanor. "I..."
Jacky turned back to the audience, plastering the smile back on her face. "So, Chris and Lindsay, I got to say, what's it been like for you guys since that dramatic elimination?"
Lindsay looked confused. "But, we've been talking and doing our nails since I got eliminated... don't you know?"
Frances snickered, his demeanor back, while Jacky facepalmed. "Well, yes, but..."
Lindsay nodded in sudden realization. "Ohhhh... did I just spoil something for the audience?"
Frances rolled his eyes. "Not much of a secret - a drunken monkey with half of a brain could figure out that Blaineley isn't enough of a bitch to key the eliminated idiots away from their 'friends' before the Aftermath show."
Jacky glared at him. "If we're all 'eliminated idiots', then what does that make you? For God's sake, you were eliminated the first day!"
Frances flushed. "That... is not of importance to you, Smith."
"How do you know? It's not like I tried to take the time to know you and listen to what you have to say," she suddenly laughed hysterically, "why should I have expected you to bother to get to know me?"
Bridgette held up her hands to the two. "Hey, guys, let's all calm down - "
"No, I have HAD it with YOU!" Jacky stood up, her voice now raised to a yell. "Ever since I got eliminated, and you had been alone before I was here, I have tried and I have tried to be your friend, because I though, 'He can't be so bad, maybe he's just lonely,' and I have gotten NOTHING in return except your being a complete JACK! ASS!"
Everyone just stared now.
"I will not take this anymore, not from you, not from anyone! I take this all the time from my family, and I don't need it from you too!"
"Jackaline - er, Jacky - wait just a moment - " Frances started, but Jacky shot him down.
"I QUIT as the Aftermath show host! I don't want to work with you anymore!" Jacky reached up to the clip that held her hair back, pulling it down and letting the chestnut waves curl around in freedom from their restraint on her back. "You can find someone else to put up with your crap, because I! Am! Done!"
With that, Jacky stormed off of the stage, her high heels clicking behind her as she disappeared behind the stage.
Everyone in the audience and the Peanut Gallery stared in a stunned silence, until Wolfgang finally broke it. "Way to go, Dipshit, now there's officially no one in this place that actually likes you."
Lindsay's eyes began to tear up. "Did... did I say something wrong...?"
Christoph instantly went to comfort her. "No, no, no, no, no Lindsay, you didn't do anything wrong, trust me." He said soothingly, brushing his hand against her golden hair.
Ben stood up. "Well, if Jacky won't be the other co-host anymore, than I guess that means Frances is being the sole host for a while."
Frances stood up. "Wait, why do I have to do it by myself?"
Ben scowled. "I wasn't aware you needed someone next to you to help you out with a job that you said, and I quote, 'I could do by myself, with absolutely no assistance from anyone, whatsoever. I have no foolish desire to do this job, but I shall do it if only to show that I am far superior to all of you.'"
Frances flushed. "Well, I - "
"Yeah, that's what I thought." Ben sat back down. "Come on, dude. Show us all how you're the superior host to all of us."
"Fine," Frances glared at him, "I will." He turned back to Lindsay and Christoph, who were simply sitting there now, watching the entire thing go down.
"So... nice... curtains, you've got here." Christoph observed casually. "Plenty of green... and very... curtainish." He said.
"Enough, we shall continue with this interview before we have to move on to the next parts of the Aftermath show."
"There's more that's going on?" Gwen groaned. "I thought you would just do the eliminated contestants' interviews!"
"Guienvere, as much as I would love to cut this short, Blaineley insisted that this be at least a half hour. We've only wasted fifteen minutes so far." Frances sighed.
Gwen shrugged. "Alright..."
"Nothing involving the rest of you, if this assurance is to mean anything." Frances turned her attention back to Christoph and Lindsay. "The last question asked how you have been handling your elimination. Answer this question."
Christoph shrugged. "Well, I can't say that I'm sad to be away from the challenges, the disgusting food, the continual humiliation... but I do miss some of my friends that are still in the show. But I know that all except for two or three of them - the Finals, that is - will join us soon enough."
Lindsay smiled. "Oh, I've got to talk to all my friends again! Brenda and Greta and Katherine and Iggy and JD - it's all been really fun! I'm okay with being eliminated."
"And... are you aware that Briana was the one to cause your elimination?" Frances raised an eyebrow.
Christoph sighed. "Well, I'm not quite sure what to think about that. I mean, she hated Coriander as much as the rest of us did. I can't think of a single person that actually likes that douche."
"Ugh, he found no fans here." Frances agreed, a scowl on his face at the mention of Coriander Levison-di Amarata.
"Well, I'm not quite sure how his plans work. I guess that if I were eliminated, then Lindsay would be alone with him on the island. I guess that's what he was thinking. So Briana had us both eliminated so that we could be together. Plausible enough - she did what she considered to be the right thing, as well as getting rid of two rivals for the million dollars. It was a smart move."
"But your opinions on it?"
"Mmph." Christoph sighed. "I'm just glad to be out of that show right now. No more of Blaineley's evil challenges, and that's enough for me."
Frances nodded. "Well, there are no more questions to ask that I can be bothered to remember. Oh, wait. Anything left to say to the audience?"
Christoph shook his head, but Lindsay spoke up, "Um, I think I left my nail polish back in the cabin..."
The two joined the Peanut Gallery, sitting beside Delia. The New Yorker smiled at Lindsay, pulling out some nail polish. "Don't worry! I keep some on me, just in case!"
Lindsay beamed. "Oh my gosh, thank you soooo much!"
"Ahem... moving on..." Frances looked at the little cards lying on the table. "Oh yes... well, we all remember the Final Destination challenge quite clearly, yes?"
Everyone in the Peaunt Gallery, not just Lindsay, Christoph, and Bridgette, nodded solemnly.
"Well, Jackaline felt it would be worth mentioning that it wasn't only the remaining contestants that had to go through that challenge."
The entire audience gasped.
"Blaineley, because she is an evil witch, decided that, because she could, she would put the eliminated contestants through an experience just like it before the elimination ceremony." Frances informed.
"Wow, seriously?" Bridgette looked disgusted.
"Well, this has led to some complications with Blaineley. She had a contract with the creators of Final Destination to do a challenge like their movies if they were credited with the idea. However, she only had a contract to do it with the remaining contestants - they didn't say she could do anything with the eliminated contestants." said Frances. "So, Blaineley is in quite a bit of trouble with the creators of Final Destination. Total Drama will be sued."
"So, if they're sued, does that mean that there wouldn't be another season...?" Inquired Adam.
"It's a possibility, McLine." said Frances. "And if you don't believe me, we have some footage of Blaineley and the Producers, Miss Henderson and Miss Espinoza." He clicked the universal remote, the footage starting on the screen.
*Beginning of Footage*
Blaineley is sitting on a chair in the before seen conference room of the Producers, a large room with one of those dramatically large tables - across from Blaineley's section of the table are the two chairs that the Producers liked to sit in. Both chairs were facing the wall, so that the faces of the Producers couldn't actually be seen.
"Blaineley..." Miss Espinoza's voice was heard. "What the actual fuck were you thinking?"
Blaineley squirmed in her seat. "Um, I assume this isn't about the vegetable platter I provided for the company's Christmas party..."
"Hmm, you'd be correct in assuming so." Miss Henderson spoke up. "You know why you're here, Miss O'Halloran. You've screwed up, big time."
"I still haven't forgotten about that vegetable platter, though." Miss Espinoza said. "But, I'll get you for that another time. You know it's because of the Final Destination challenge, Blaineley."
Blaineley looked ashamed. "I'd rather talk about the vegetable platter - "
"You know EXACTLY why you're here!" Miss Espinoza said angrily. "Time to start talking, Blaineley. You know you're good at that!"
"Hey, Isa." Said Miss Henderson soothingly. "Calm down. I'm sure we can talk this out like decent - and sane - human beings. Blaineley, you do need to explain why you did a Final Destination challenge for the eliminated contestants, though."
"Well..." Blaineley squirmed for a moment more. "It was to make more money! I was thinking that for all of the horror fans that loved the Final Destination challenge would want to see even more! So, if I put the eliminated contestants through a challenge like that, we could put it on sale as a bonus episode, make the Total Drama company more money!"
"You know that the contract only applied to the remaining contestants." Miss Henderson reminded her.
"I thought it applied to all of them!" Blaineley wailed. "Please, Miss Henderson, Miss Espinoza... I need this job... you're not going to fire me, are you?"
Miss Espinoza sighed. "No, but if Total Drama gets sued, then there will be consequences. Not just for you, but for all of us."
A small intercom placed on the table between Miss Espinoza and Miss Henderson suddenly buzzed. Miss Henderson clicked the button. "Greta, what is it?"
"Sorry to bother you in the middle of your meeting, Miss Henderson - "
Miss Henderson waved a hand. "That's fine, but what is it?"
"Well, the creators of Final Destination are here with their legal represtatives, madam."
"Shit," Miss Henderson mumbled. Miss Espinoza and her exchanged a glance. "Is there going to be a lawsuit or not? Did they say?"
Greta's voice sounded uncomfortable. "Er... I asked... they said that 'they hope you have a good corporate attorney.' And for you and Miss Espinoza to come downstairs as soon as you're able."
"Oh, damn it..." Miss Espinoza said, a pale arm reaching over to the intercom. "Thank you, Greta. We'll be there." The intercom turned off.
Both of the Producers turned to face Blaineley, but the camera focused on Blaineley, sitll leaving the faces of the Producers out of the view. "We'll talk later about this, Blaineley." Miss Espinoza promised, her voice angry.
The two stood up and left the room, leaving Blaineley alone in the conference room. Blaineley groaned, her head in her hands.
"Shit," she muttered, "what have I done?"
*End of Footage*
The entire audience, as well as the Peanut Gallery, gasped.
"Damn... Blaineley screwed up." Rosalind said, her dark blue eyes wide, her freckled nose twitching.
"Hell, no kidding." Draco muttered.
"Well, I sure hope that Blaineley is happy with some of the footage that she got." Frances said, some of the clips from the eliminated contestants' misery playing on the screen.
Rosalind had been the fifteenth survivor to have died, according to the screen - she had 'suffered her death' in a 'hardware store' in the virtual reality machine, a nail gun going off and shooting several nails in her chest and her throat.
Delia had gone as the second to last survivor, 'dying' at the same time that Ben did - a malfunctioning wood saw.
Frances had nearly been stabbed to death by a drunk in the machine, but Jacky had taken the blow for him.
Frances stopped playing the clips. "Well, you get the idea."
The Peanut Gallery looked more than a little queasy at the sights of their own deaths, Rosalind rubbing her throat where the nails had gotten her.
"Now, we have one last thing to do today before we cut off this short Aftermath episode - a present for Wolfgang, if you will, as his grandfather died while he was in the show."
Wolfgang looked sadly at his feet at the memory of receiving that letter.
"Well, his twin sister, Willow, insisted on talking with him. We have her on live video chat now. Do you wish to speak with her, Wolfgang?" Frances asked the punk.
Wolfgang looked up, his eyes bright at the prospect of seeing his sister. "Yes, please! I'd love to talk to her."
Frances clicked a button on the remote, and Wolfgang's twin appeared on the screen. Willow LaFleur had deep blue eyes, with long, shiny black hair that went to her hips, and side bangs on the left side of her face. She was wearing a spaghetti strap blue dress with a black lacy cardigan, black tights, and black flats.
"Willow!" Wolfgang said happily, looking at the screen. "Oh man, I've been missing you so much."
Draco, sitting beside Wolfgang, looked fixated on her. "Woah... I can see why..." Adam stared at him oddly.
"Draco...?" Adam mumbled hesitantly, his eyebrow raised in questioning.
"Wolfgang, it's great to see you again!" She giggled. "Even if it's just on a computer screen, a ha..."
"Well, begging and taking your pick never exactly went hand in hand." Wolfgang chuckled, his sister laughing with him.
"True enough! So, uh, I needed to ask, brother," Willow's blue eyes were filled with concern, "I know that things haven't been great for me since Grandfather died. But how are you taking it? Are you okay?"
Wolfgang sighed. "Things could be better... but I have friends and Angie, and it's been easier. For me, I guess truly grieving has been put off for now. I can't wait to come home, Willow."
"I can't wait for you to come home either, Wolfgang." Willow smiled sadly.
Draco just kept staring at her. "Wow..."
"Will, I don't think we'll be getting too much time left - "
"Correct." Frances said, fiddling with his thumbs in boredom.
"So just say hello to grandma, please? And to my friends back home?" Wolfgang asked her.
Willow nodded. "Of course!"
"Well, it's been great to talk to you again. I'll be home soon."
"Goodbye." Willow smiled. The twins waved at each other again before Frances turned off the screen.
Draco remained fixated on the same spot where Willow LaFleur had been moments before. Adam was still weirded out by this behavior.
"Well, we're all out of time, so - " Frances was interrupted as Jacky came out from behind the curtains. "What now, Jackaline?"
Jacky glared at him. "Well, I like hosting the Aftermath show, so I decided that I'll be continuing, even in my co-host is a complete jerk."
"Gee, thanks a lot."
"Well," Jacky said, smiling, "that's all we have for this episode of the Total Drama Blainerific: Aftermath Show! Stay tuned to the future episodes! What will happen next time? Will Briana finally get caught? Will Zakk and Bunifa's fragile friendship last? And what will happen in the future of Total Drama? Find out next time on Total... Drama... Blainerific!"
The screen went black.
The entire room was deserted, except for Billy the intern, who was sweeping, and Draco, who was still in his seat, still looking fixated at the screen.

Egasp, sorry this took so long (again!) Besides my life situation, there's only one computer in a house of five... and my grandparents are Facebook addicts. I'll try to go for a quicker update next time, honest.
