This challenge has been brought to you by the letter ARRRRRRRRRR. Ha ha ha, geddit? Am I funny yet? *gets shot*
Just kidding, this challenge has actually been brought to you by Another Dead Hero. May I thank you once again for all of these challenge ideas you've been giving me? Ha ha, seriously. It's been very helpful. :)
This is slightly important to me: to Ben, Bunifa, and Adam and Draco's creators (the dragon 1000, Red Icewater, and LiveUrLife2013, respectively), can you resend me the applications for those characters? Since they're no longer available to me since they changed the PM system, I don't have them anymore. Thank you.
Also, if you couldn't tell (since someone pointed out to me via PM how stupid the chapter's name was), The Love Blaineley's chapter name was taken from the name of The Love Guru movie. I've never seen it, sure, but I thought the title was cute. And I did think of a better chapter title, but by then it was too late to change it.
NeokoNewman, section nine (I have found an ingenious way to respond to the questions in your reviews! Clever, yes?): Ooh, thank you for pointing that out! I'll fix that up sometime, I didn't notice that little typo. Thank you~
John-SP150: Hmm, looks like it. Well wait, no, not necessarily. There's still the alternate endings and the prologue, as well as the possibility of the Final Episode (capitalize this for effect xP) being a two part chapter. But yes, minus all that, it looks like a 40 chapter long story. :o And yes, Dawn is amazing. I adore her character. :D
OrangeRamenCup: Mmm, to be fair, Frances has been upping his asshole antics around Jacky in between the Aftermath chapters, so even she would get fed up with him after a little while. Thought I'd address that, I don't want confusion or anything... But thank you for pointing that out for me, I didn't realize I had made it look like that. :/
Disclaimer: My oh my, since when have I owned the Total Drama series? Since when, seriously? I own jack squat, man. :P The only kick ass thing I own is my lovely little collection of OC's, that's about it.
"Last time on Total Drama Blainerific...
Love was in the air, but it certainly wasn't the sort of love you would see between Ally and Noah from The Notebook. One special shipment of love potion from of the Total Drama company's contacts caused the strangest couples to get together - Lindsay and Richard, Christoph and Briana, Zakk and Bunifa Latifa Halifa Sharifa Karifa, and Lucian and Samantha! The guys made complete fools of themselves - Lucian in particular - trying to impress the girls that we forced them to like. But how can we forget the beloved "love hate relationship"? Bunifa and Zakk, still fighting from the Final Destin - oh wait, I can't say that anymore... Ahem, from the recent horror movie challenge, were comically pitted together as a couple, proving to be hilarious for just about everybody involved as well as a dream come true to the 'Zunifa' supporters of the world! In an odd twist of fate, Angie helped Briana and Emily finally confess their feelings for each other, despite Briana holding Angie is a mind threatening case of blackmail. Cuteness! Meanwhile, Christoph and Lindsay started creating friendships with different contestants - Briana and Richard, respectively - but Coriander wasn't content to let their happiness last. Plotting to drive a wedge in their relationship, then cause Christoph's elimination, his plan would have left Lindsay alone on the Island with him, where he could've convinced her to do God knows what. Briana, however, caught onto his scheme - in a weird sort of way, she helped her new friend by causing him and Lindsay to get eliminated together, striking a blow against Coriander and causing him to finally, FINALLY, get fired. I wanted to do that the whole time, I'll have you know, but Miss Espinoza said he was good for ratings... In the end, Bunifa and Zakk got over their ridiculous fight, and the last of the original Total Drama contestants was eliminated.
But don't think that there isn't more to come! Will Angie break free from Briana's blackmail, or will the fear of losing her brother and her boyfriend keep her locked up? Will the peaceful, happy relationship between Briana and Emily last, or will something, SOMETHING, break them apart? And will the contestants finally lose their minds and their limbs? Find out on this episode of...
Total... Drama... Blainerific!"
(Theme Song: Go to The Race From Hell for details.)
Picture this, a pretty summer morning, the sun shining, the sky blue, the birds chirping and chirping...
Things went downhill from there.
The contestants (as well as the interns and Chef Hatchet), stood at the door of the Mess Hall, some angry and some confused. All of them were in their pajamas, Emily shivering in the slight morning breeze.
Blaineley was in a heated argument with two men in black suits, both having to be at least two feet taller than the blonde hostess.
"What do you think you're doing? You're not allowed to just come on the Island and take our things!" Blaineley said furiously, her brow crinkling in fury.
One of the men, a brunet, pulled out a small piece of paper from his pockets. "Sorry, O'Halloran. Bosses' orders."
"What is this!" Blaineley demanded, grabbing the paper from the man's hands. "'In order to gain extra funds... selling uneccesary items... tearing down some buildings and selling the materials... in light of the recent events concering the company's lawsuit... we're sure you know why... Cordially, Henderson, S. and Espinoza, I.'" The blonde hostess gave a small scream of fury as she shoved the paper back into the man's hands.
"This is ridiculous! For God's sake, they took my bed! I was SLEEPING in it!" Zakk said angrily, standing beside Samantha in his pajamas. Or rather, just the baggy black pants he favored - he didn't have anything else for pajamas.
"You can't just take the contestants' beds! And you're tearing down the cabins?" Blaineley scoffed. "What the hell?"
"Sorry, O'Halloran. But when Miss Henderson and Miss Espinoza give us an order, you know better than to go against it." The other man, a blond, said.
Blaineley scowled. "That's grammatically incorrect - it should be 'When Miss Henderson and Miss Espinoza gives one an order, you know better than to than to go against it.'"
The blond man glared. "Little lady, you're not doing yourself any favors, here."
"I don't care! Stop what you're doing now, or so help me God, I will shove my heels up your - "
The two men stepped forward, stopping Blaineley. For all of her spite and her feistiness, they were still ripped. And two feet taller than her.
"O'Halloran, that's enough." The brunet said.
Blaineley sighed. "Fine. But what am I supposed to do for them to sleep if you destroy the cabins and sell the beds? I can't have them sleep outside!"
(Several moments later...)
"You're having us sleep in tents? ALL OF US?" Blaineley said furiously. "That's insane, I'M the HOSTESS!"
"Miss O'Halloran, consider it lucky you still get to keep your personal possessions. And look, we got a red tent for you."
Blaineley steamed. "Oh yes, that totally makes up for it!" She said sarcastically.
"Glad you see things our way." Said the blond, clearly immune to sarcasm. Or simply uncaring. "You guys will still get to keep the Mess Hall, the washrooms, and the confessional, as well as that old outhouse, so I suggest that you cool your tits, O'Halloran. Miss Espinoza and Miss Henderson ordered this to get more money for the lawsuit."
"Hold on, what's this lawsuit that you guys mentioned?" Lucian asked, raising a brow. "What's going on?"
Blaineley, the brunet, and the blond turned to the contestants. "Nothing! Nothing at all, Lucian..." Blaineley laughed awkwardly, scratching the back of her neck. "Don't worry about it..."
"I think we sort of get to worry about it, considering that because of it, we don't have anywhere to sleep except for these tents." Angie pointed out.
"At least they're cleaner than the cabins." Richard commented.
The brunet and the blond exchanged a glance. "I take it you didn't inform the contestants of what you decided to do while the horror movie challenge was taking place?" The blond man asked, looking as amused as his partner as.
Blaineley went pale, looking horribly uncomfortable as she stared down at her feet. She looked almost comical as she stood there in her red silk pajamas, her red sleeping mask still on top of her messy blonde hair.
Bunifa crossed her arms. "Now, I've GOT to hear this."
"Please, do inform us of what you were doing, Blaineley." Briana added, her eyebrow raised.
Blaineley scratched her head. "I, er..." she lowered her voice, "may have sort of put the eliminated contestants through a challenge like yours after you guys were done." She said, very quickly.
Stunned silence held the contestants. Then,
"And just when I thought you couldn't possibly be any MORE of a bitch." Zakk said disgustedly.
"Blaineley, that's HORRIBLE!" Said Emily, a scowl on her face.
"Wh-what's wrong with you?" Samantha asked, her cerulean eyes lit with anger.
"It was for money!" Blaineley said defensively, backing away. "The company's been in a bad spot lately, I-I was trying to help!"
"By mentally torturing the other contestants, and not just us? What the fuck?" Bunifa said, looking just as intimidating as she usually was, even in her pajamas.
"You nasty old cow!" Briana added, the remaining eight contestants all raising their opinions in a loud, angry, unanimous voice.
Blaineley kept backing away until her rump hit a tree. "Okay, that's enough! The challenges will still continue as they usually do, so everyone..." Her blue eyes got wide and angry. "EVERYONE! Go and get dressed, then meet in the Mess Hall. GO!"
The rabble of noise stopped, at least for a little bit. With a final glare from each of the contestants, everyone moved to get their clothing, the suitcases that held them having been unceremoniously dumped on the porch of the Mess Hall.
"Okay, I know that considering some of my actions on the show, I'm hardly one to comment, but I think I could on this one. What the hell is wrong with you, Blaineley?" She scowls. "For God's sake, they were already eliminated! And yet, somehow... I can still believe that she did that. And now we're all suffering for it. Ugh." -Briana Galvan
"And I have to share the same genes as that woman..." He glares at the camera. "I can be a bastard, sure, but I wouldn't do something like that. That's just low." -Zakk Blythe
"So, due to Blaineley's stupidity, we're all suffering." He sighs. "Nothing out of the ordinary, I suppose. And I get that if the Total Drama company's in danger as far as money goes, she'd want to help out, but there's a fine line to be crossed between 'helping out and making money' and being a great fat... ugh. I hope Gwen and the others are okay." -Lucian Sanders
"W-why did I s-sign up for this show? Huh..." -Samantha Lyle
"I'm going to look at it this way - if whatever they're being sued for shuts the company down, I get to go home and never, ever, EVER see Blaineley again." She sighs wistfully. "And while I'm at it, I'm going to step outside and see a rainbow, and puppies, and plenty of hot men that are digging me." -Bunifa Latifa Halifa Sharifa Karifa James
"I-I hope that my eliminated friends a-are okay. That chal-challenge was horrible, but to t-think of the others ha-having to go through it too... Oh, I-I hope they're okay..." -Emily Gaede
"I'm guessing that whatever contract they had with the Final Destination company - and this is just a guess, mind you - meant that only the contestants still in the running could go through a challenge like this. Making the eliminated contestants go through one would have defiled the contract." He grins sheepishly. "Th-that's only a guess, though... I'm really not sure." He sighs. "I hope Katie's all right." -Richard Vic Birge
She groans. "Adam... Wolfgang... I know they weren't harmed physically, but I hope they're okay! Ugh, I was the one to have had Adam eliminated in the first place! I mean, sure, he would've gone through that challenge here if he had stayed, but I still feel horrible..." -Angie McLine
As it turned out, Blaineley had to keep talking to the two men for about another fifteen minutes, and afterwards, getting dressed and doing her makeup took her another forty minutes, so the contestants had plenty of time to spare waiting for her.
The conversation between Blaineley and the two men in charge of the moving was pretty audible.
"WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU'RE SELLING THE VIRTUAL REALITY CHAMBER?"
Everyone looked up from their conversations from this, sitting in a stunned silence for a while, until:
"WOOOOOOOOO HOO!" Bunifa cheered, rising from her seat. "God DAMN, that has to be the happiest news we've gotten all morning! Every challenge we've ever had to do in that chamber has been nothing but jack shit, all around!"
Zakk high fived her. "Now she won't get to physically and mentally torment us with that thing anymore!"
The two did a sort of happy dance, and the others eventually joined in.
That is, until Richard had to break the mood. "Wait, what if she wants to do another violent challenge? What then?"
"Pssh, she won't get to do it, simple." Zakk shrugged.
"Yeah, but that hasn't stopped her before we got the virtual reality chamber..." Richard added.
Everyone stopped in their tracks.
"Well, fuck." Bunifa muttered.
"Come on, you can't sell everything! We need a lot of this stuff for the challenges! What am I supposed to do if you get rid of almost everything?" Blaineley asked, still in her jammies.
"Miss Espinoza and Miss Henderson said that if you sent an order in, they would get the things that you need, so stop worrying about it so much, O'Halloran." The blond man replied, while his partner was giving orders to the workers.
"And what about the virtual reality chamber? What if I need that?" Blaineley demanded.
"Anything except that." The blond corrected himself.
Blaineley groaned. "Okay, okay, I can deal with that... Wait, what if one of the contestants get sick from being forced to sleep outside? What if it becomes something horrible? WHAT IF THEY DIE? WHAT IF THEIR FAMILIES SUE THE COMPANY FOR THEIR CHILD DYING BECAUSE ESPINOZA AND HENDERSON MADE THEM SLEEP OUTSIDE?" She huffed, hoping that she was getting her point across.
The blond smirked. "Then have them sleep in the Mess Hall. This is supposed to be a camping show, isn't it?"
The frustrated hostess let out a scream that was heard on the other side of the Island.
When Blaineley was finally done talking to the two men and getting dressed, she joined the contestants and Chef in the Mess Hall. The interns had left, going about their own business.
"Okay, contestants! Now that this little situation is being taken care of..." Blaineley was cut off midsentence.
"If it's being taken care of, does this mean we get the cabins back?" Lucian asked hopefully.
The other contestants raised their voices in an equally hopeful manner.
"I'm getting to that, Lucian!" Blaineley said, holding her hands in the air. "Now here's the greatest news of them all. The challenges will still continue as normal, make no mistake about that!"
The "AWWWWWW" was unanimous.
"Alright, now here's the better news." Blaineley said. "Since I know that you aren't all that psyched about getting to continue competing for one million dollars... Okay, so I managed to convince them to let us keep the cabins - "
This time, everybody cheered.
"We won't get to keep any of the furniture it it. That's all being sold to get extra money for the lawsuit. You guys will just have to use the sleeping bags. You guys still get your personal posessions - even the Producers can't do anything about that - but where you're going to put them, that'll be up to you."
Richard shrugged. "Well, that's better than nothing. I suppose we'll have to take what we can get?"
"True." Angie agreed. "At least we won't have to sleep outside for the rest of the season."
Blaineley beamed. "See, we're looking on the bright side! Now, I'd love to waste more time talking about this, but we have a challenge to get to today!" She smiled sarcastically. "Aren't you guys just excited?"
Bunifa stared blankly at her. "Quivering with excitement, Slut-erella."
Blaineley glared at her. "Ha ha, very clever."
Bunifa smirked. "Thank you. I pride myself on such an ability."
Blaineley rolled her eyes. "Anyways, today is a movie themed challenge. You will get into groups of two - teams that you can choose today. Since I'm feeling nice today. Your task is, with your partner, to choose a movie genre - horror, romance, comedy, any of those - and find objects needed to film a preview for your movie. The movie's name will be up to you, of course, as well as what this movie is about. Video cameras will be provided for you, as well as an intern to film the preview of your movie. Both of you will have to play as a character in this movie, and costumes will be provided. Chef and I will judge the previews, as well as a third mystery judge."
"They're not selling the costumes? I thought they would." Lucian asked, raising a brow.
"Well, they probably will... but we get to keep them, at least for today." Blaineley shrugged.
"Who's the mystery judge?" Asked Richard, who then realized what a stupid question it was the instant it left his mouth.
Blaineley grinned. "That's a surprise, silly!"
"What if there's something we need but it's not on the island?" Zakk asked, an idea for a horror movie already forming in his head.
"You'll just have to get creative and improvise there. If there's something you need and we don't have it, well, we're sorry about that." Blaineley sighed. "Oh, and if there's any graphic animations that need done - subtitles, animated special effects, all of that fun stuff - we're also allowed to keep the laptops for that purpose, at least until the end of the day."
"Any other rules we should know about?" Briana asked.
"Hmm... oh yes! Any movies that you make can't be based on a real movie, like doing a fantasy theme, for example, and then picking Beauty and the Beast as your movie title. You have to be original with what the title is."
"What if what we pick is already a movie, but we don't know it?" Briana challenged.
"That's what Google is for, silly Briana!" Blaineley laughed.
"So you could do a movie that's like a movie you know about, but you just have to name it something else." Richard summarized.
"Pretty much." Blaineley nodded. "Just try to make this look original."
"N-noted." Said Emily.
"You know, Blaineley," said Zakk, a faux thoughtful look on his face, "this sounds awfully similiar to a challenge in Total Drama World Tour. You know, the Japanese one..."
Blaineley glared. "It's a movie preview, not a candy commercial. Duh. The difference is RIGHT THERE, so shut up."
"Are you saying that you're less imaginative than Chris? The very man you said you would be better than?" Zakk tsked. "Such a shame to see someone break their promises."
"I didn't ask for your smart ass opinion, Zachariah." Blaineley glared, crossing her arms.
"Consider it something I'm throwing in for free." Zakk gave a cocky smirk.
The hostess sighed, bringing her manicured hand to her temples. "Any further questions of actual importance? ...No? Then, pick your partner and get started!" Said Blaineley, some of the contestants already having friends in mind, while others weren't so lucky.
"So this little curse I have, where all of my friends strangely get eliminated... this is one of those days where it especially sucks." He sighs. "Maybe I'll get lucky and someone will actually want to work with me." -Richard Vic Birge
"Maybe I'll work with Richard. He's a pretty cool guy, anyway." -Lucian Sanders
Zakk automatically turned to Samantha. "Shall we work together and make a fantastic horror movie that'll impress even Blaineley?" He grinned, extending a hand to his girlfriend.
Samantha smiled back. "Why yes, l-let us do s-so. D-do you have any ideas in mind?"
"Little Red, I think I have an idea in mind." Zakk smirked.
Briana, meanwhile, turned to her new girlfriend. "Do you want to work together, Emily?" She asked, smiling.
Emily smiled back. "That sounds fun. L-let's work together." She said.
Briana beamed. "Cool!"
Richard sighed, sitting down on a chair, figuring that he would work with whoever was left. Lucian turned to him.
"Hey, Rich! You want to work together? I think between the two of us, we could come up with something." Lucian offered, a hesitant smile on his face.
Richard looked up. "You want to work with me? Seriously? I-I mean sure!"
With that, the two... close acquaitances, shall we shall, started working together on their movie.
Which left Angie and Bunifa Latifa Halifa Sharifa Karifa.
"So girl, looks like it's just you and me." Shrugged Bunifa.
"I guess so. Do you have any ideas for a movie to work on?" Angie asked, the two girls exiting the Mess Hall together.
"I'm sure I'll think of something..."
Samantha and Zakk
"Okay, wise one." Samantha started as soon as she and Zakk were by themselves to plan out their movie. "What d-did you have in m-mind?"
"Well, Sam," Zakk started, using his hands for emphasis on the conversation. "I went to see Red Riding Hood when it first came out, and I've come to thinking..."
"I think I see where this is going..." Samantha said, this being ignored.
"I liked the movie and all, shit, I thought it was pretty clever. But the fact that it was directed by the person that directed Twilight..." Zakk shuddered. "If we just name it something else, I figure we could probably make our preview better than how the movie went. It could be about pretty much the same thing, sure, except that it takes place during modern times. And... oh, while we're switching it up, the man that she's supposed to get married to is the werewolf hunter, and the woodcutter in the old fairytale."
"I've n-never seen Red Riding Hood, s-so you'll have to fill me in on pretty much everything." Samantha said sheepishly. "So I'm playing as Red..."
"Correct." Zakk nodded.
"Hmm, b-but Red w-wasn't her name in the m-movie, was it?"
"No, it was Valerie... I think. Yeah, it was Valerie."
"Then I'll just change the name to something e-else." Samantha shrugged.
"Okay, I guess it's official then?" Zakk asked.
"I c-can't think of anything better." Samantha said sheepishly.
"Then let's get started!" Said Zakk, standing up. "I'll go find the costumes we need. I think that what you're wearing right now would probably be okay, but if you do Blaineley will probably make up some nonexistant rule about having to wear a costume." He rolled his eyes.
"That, and my hoodie isn't really red." Samantha added.
"That it is not, Scotty." Zakk replied. "I'll go find the costumes we'll need for the huntsman, Red, and the wolf. What else... oh, could you find a spot that'd be good for the set? Like, a scary dismal clearing or something?"
"I-I could do that, s-sure." Samantha shrugged.
"Okay, we'll meet back here at this spot. I don't know when we'll be back, so..." Zakk trailed off. "Well, let's get going." He and Samantha shared a quick kiss. "This'll be a great movie preview, I just know it!"
"Hee hee, I'm s-sure it will." Samantha giggled, the two making off in different directions, looking for what they needed.
Briana and Emily
"S-so, um, w-what are you t-thinking for the movie we could f-film?" Emily asked Briana, the two finding their own small spot to plan out their movie.
"Well, I suppose it depends on what the others are doing." Briana shrugged. "Zakk, I just know he'll do a horror movie themed one, and I'm not really into horror movies anyway. Richard, I think, won't be able to come up with anything, and Lucian's into all of that law enforcement stuff..." She stopped to think. "Angie and Bunifa Latifa Halifa Sharifa Karifa, I'm not sure. I could guess what they'd do seperately, but together... I'm not sure."
"S-sounds like you've got the others all figured out." Emily laughed a little.
"Ha ha, I'm just good at paying attention to other people, that's all." Briana laughed a little awkwardly. "Well, we're up against - well, we're PROBABLY up against a horror movie preview and a law enforcement movie preview. And a mystery one. So, we could always try something else..."
"What about a s-sort of sci-fi m-m-movie? N-nobody would expect something like that..." Emily suggested.
"You don't need to be so shy around me, Em." Briana smiled softly, playing with a strand of Emily's hair. "I like you for who you are."
"Well..." Emily looked down. "I'm just not used to people liking me. And I-I don't want to say something that would m-make people not like me... I'm n-not used to having friends." She looked back up shyly. "Or a g-girlfriend. I'm s-sorry... I just don't want to me-mess up in this."
Briana said nothing for a moment, she simply kept playing with Emily's auburn hair. "I'm sure, Emily," she finally spoke after a moment, "that if you were more honest about yourself, who you really are," her brown eyes met Emily's grey ones, "people would find you more charming than they think you are already. I think that the real you is so much more charming than you think you are."
Emily blushed. "T... Thank you, Briana. It means... it means a lot to hear you say that." She said, speaking clearly for once.
Briana smiled. "No problem." She gave Emily a quick kiss on the cheek, the smile still on both of their faces. "I really like your sci-fi movie idea, by the way. I think we could do that."
Emily grinned. "Glad you approve."
Lucian and Richard
"So, we could do a crime investigation movie preview..." Lucian suggested, while, at the same moment, somewhere (not too) far away, Briana was guessing what the detective would suggest.
"Why did I know you would suggest that?" Richard asked sarcastically, his Nintendo DS closed and back in his pocket.
Lucian pouted. "What, I thought I was being original!"
"Yes, the detective suggesting to do a crime investigation movie preview was totally original. Nobody saw that coming." Richard grinned.
"You're kind of cynical today, aren't you?" Lucian commented.
"They're getting rid of the virtual reality chamber! That's... that's such a waste of all of the video games we could have played in there after the season was over!" Richard finally burst out.
"Well, they could probably make a load of money for the Producers' lawsuit if they sold it." Said Lucian, rather unhelpfully.
"Yeah, the lawsuit that Blaineley caused, anyway." Richard sighed. "Well, back to the subject of the challenge, I guess I'll go with that. I can't think of anything better, anyway."
"Glad you like it! ...Or that you're at least willing to comply with it, but that's good enough!" Lucian smiled. "So, in this preview, I can be the dashing, totally suave, totally amazing detective - "
"We also couldn't see that one coming." Richard frowned.
Lucian ignored him. " - while you can be the vile, white haired criminal that, in the end, is stopped by the dashing, totally suave, totally amazing detective." He paused for effect. "Who is played by me."
"In case that wasn't clear already." Richard rolled his eyes.
"So, what do you think? Should we do it? Huh? Huh?" Lucian looked so enthusiastic, Richard finally sighed and smiled.
"All right, dude. Let's go with your idea." He gave in.
"Yay!" Lucian said enthusiastically. "Okay, okay, so I'll go get the costumes needed - I hope that Blaineley'll have something - and you..." He paused. "Hmm, find Blaineley and ask if we can use her cabin! That's the place with the most valuable stuff, that's probably the best place to film a break in or something like that."
Richard stood up. "I'll go do that, then."
Angie and Bunifa Latifa Halifa Sharifa Karifa
The two stared at each other heatedly.
"Animal movie. No question." Angie said, crossing her arms and pouting.
"Oh, come on girl! Gang movie - that'll be what gets to Chef's big ol' pudding heart, not some movie about a kitten or a puppy dog!" Bunifa retorted, her arms crossed as well.
"But Chef loves animals! He would love an animal movie!" said Angie.
"He cooked dolphins in the first season! And anyway, there's also Blaineley and the third judge to think about for getting points." Bunifa pointed out.
"Well, still! If we can confirm that at least one of the judges will like our preview, that's one point right there..." Angie added.
"Okay, fine." Bunifa sighed. "So we're going to have to choose between either a gang movie or an animal movie."
They both stopped to think, until the figurative light bulb went off over their heads.
"You know, girl," said Bunifa, "I think we could reach a compromise here."
Angie nodded. "I was just thinking the same thing..."
Both girls grinned at the prospect of the wonderful drama they could create from this idea.
"This will be one hell of a drama movie, let me tell you. It'll be the type to jerk the tears right out of your eyes, and rip your heart from your chest!" She clutches at her chest dramatically. "It'll be a vision, I just know it." -Bunifa Latifa Halifa Sharifa Karifa James
Zakk and Samantha
While Samantha was looking for a good spot in the woods to film their movie preview, Zakk was looking for costumes for the movie.
"Let's see, a red hood, where's a red hood... here's a black hood... a green hood... a yellow hood... a polka dot hood that looks like a clown threw up on it... a carroty orange hood... a blue hood... God dammit," Zakk stopped, "there's a hood here in EVERY DAMNED COLOR. Except for red. The fuck, Blaineley."
With our fabulous hostess, Blaineley Stacey Andrews O'Halloran
Blaineley, who was currently in the camera rooms (they also got to keep those, for obvious reasons), had gotten bored, and was doing her pastime of writing troll fanfictions for Harry Potter.
Beside her was the lone red hood.
"Problem, Zakk?" She grinned.
Back with Zakk and Samantha, because it was tragically short last time we checked up on them
Samantha, meanwhile, was looking for a good spot in the wood to film their movie preview. It had to be dark, dismal, and scary.
"I-I could always use B-Blaineley's cabin... th-that might be funny, a-anyway." She joked to herself quietly, trying to lift the mood.
Well, she was definitely in a dark, dismal, and scary looking part of the woods, but she imagined a clearing would probably be the best bet for this movie.
"Hmm... I've never r-really been this d-deep in the woods before. I-I hope I d-don't get lost..." -Samantha Lyle
Samantha kept walking by herself, jumping whenever she stepped on a stick and broke it. "C-calm down, girly... i-it's just a stick..."
She kept walking. "Maybe Z-Zakk and I should've traded places... I-I hate feeling like such a w-wimp."
She considered going back and telling Zakk that she could take over this job, when she - quite literally - stumbled upon the perfect spot. Besides being dark, dismal, and scary, it was also a clearing surrounded by tall pine trees, the floor of the clearing surrounded by holly and juniper bushes. She had walked in through what was probably the only clear part of the ground.
"Oh, t-this is perfect! I-I think this will be p-perfect for the movie!" Samantha smiled, turning around to leave. "N-now to just go and tell Z-Zakk..."
Then she paused, and looked around. "I-if I can remember where I-I am."
Emily and Briana
The two girls had split up for their parts of the challenge. While Briana was getting the plain white masks the two would need for their sci-fi movie, Emily was going to find a section in the woods (similar to Samantha) for the two to film their movie spot.
Unlike Samantha, Emily wasn't doing so well.
"Okay, s-so you don't like the w-woods. But at least you'll f-find a good spot for the p-preview." She mumbled to herself, kicking a rock on the ground to pass the time.
After about fifteen minutes of walking (edited so it was only about two minutes on TV), Emily found herself in front of a cave. Lichen was growing on the walls, a small trickle of water falling over the walls and gathering into a tiny pool a few feet away from Emily's feet.
Emily smiled. "Oh, this can do for the p-preview!" She said, stepping inside. It would probably be best to quickly check for bears (and run like hell if there were any).
There weren't any bears, but Emily quickly discovered she wasn't alone all the same.
The tall, purple, and rather hairy figure that any Total Drama fan could recognize walked past the entrance of the cave, the one Emily figured was probably his home.
"Sa... Sa..." Emily muttered, her eyes wide as she pressed herself up against the wall.
Sasquatchinakwa, who had just left his cave not two minutes ago, realized that he had left the entrance to his home completely open. He didn't want the raccoons to get back in (or that Mr. Coconut; they kept stealing the chips and dip he kept stealing from Chef), so he figured it would probably be best to place the usual boulder in front of the cave.
"What's he doing... Oh, no..." Emily said, realizing quickly that she was about to get trapped in the cave. She hesitated a split second too long; if she had been a little quicker, she would've made it out before Sasquatchinakwa took a large boulder in front of the entrance to his cave.
SLAM! The boulder blocked the main way out, the great purple yeti unaware of the teenage girl still trapped inside.
"Oh, c-crap!" said Emily, knocking against the boulder. "WAIT! LET ME OUT!"
Mr. Sasquatchinakwa had left the area as soon as his cave was protected by the boulder, and thus, unable to hear Emily yell to be let out.
After a few minutes, Emily gave up, pacing the floor of the cave in frustration. "Now wh-what to do..."
Lucian and Richard
"Absolutely!" Blaineley beamed down at Richard.
Richard brightened. "Really?"
"...NOT!" Blaineley crossed her arms. "Really, you want to film a break-in in MY cabin? Come on, my cabin is sort of MINE for a reason! That's where all of my valuable stuff is!"
"I'll be damned if I let those kids find my Harry Potter books, or my notebooks of ideas for trolling fanfiction! Those things need to be kept secret!" She grins before realizing what she said. "I - I'm so editing this later!" -Blaineley O'Halloran, The Hostess
"Oh, come on! Please, Blaineley? I promise that we won't mess up any of your stuff! We just need it for a five minute preview!"
"Tempting," Blaineley replied. "But, I'm still going to have to say no."
"Oh, come on! There must be something that will make you change your mind!"
Blaineley was about to tell him to go away when she realized that, maybe he did have something she wanted.
"I don't suppose you have... the Harry Potter video games?" She said slowly.
Richard shrugged. "I have them, I just haven't really used them yet."
The two were silent for a few moments. And then,
"I think we could strike a deal, Richard."
Angie and Bunifa Latifa Halifa Sharifa Karifa
The two girls proved to be surprisingly profficient in gathering all of the materials they would need for their movie. All they needed were some baggy hoods and some arm bands - Bunifa's "gang" would have a blue band on their arms, while Angie's would have a crystal green band (like her eyes).
All they needed now were the animals for their movie. Have you guessed what it would be about yet?
"Well, um... that might be a problem." Bunifa frowned, the two girls already dressed up in the costumes they would need for their movie.
The two girls puzzled for a moment until the finally knew what they would do for their challenge. Or, at least Angie knew.
"A few of the animals around here seem friendly enough with me. Maybe I could try to convince them to come out?" Angie suggested, blowing a strand of black hair out of her face.
Bunifa shrugged. "If you can get them to come out, then we'd better get around to it! I just want this challenge to be over already."
And thus, Angie set off on her epic quest to find the chipmunk, raccoon, and beaver that were friendly with her. Or rather, kept mooching food off of her (mostly marshmallows on the s'more nights).
But as long as they were friendly, well, that's all that mattered.
Samantha and Zakk
Zakk, unfortunately, was unable to find the red hood. This was courtesy of Blaineley, as we all know.
He had settled for dark orange hood there, hoping that the dark shading of the clearing Samantha had told him about would make it appear red.
He, himself, had found the two main things he would need for his role; a plastic axe, and a wolf costume. Well, the wolf's head part of the costume anyway. He would have to stick to hanging around in the bushes for the werewolf role.
"Alright Sam, ready to start filming?" Zakk said, his girlfriend dressed in a light blue denim dress (one sent by her stepmother, but was surprisingly decent as far as the "gifts" from that woman went), the dark orange hood over her face, the cloak around her.
Samantha nodded. "Ready and... w-well, eager probably isn't the right word..." She grinned.
Zakk laughed as the camera begin timing down to its turn on, the couple getting in place for their parts in the preview.
Emily and Briana
Briana had long since started looking for her girlfriend; when she had been gone for a half hour, she had been more than worried.
After about fifteen minutes of looking, she found herself in front of the cave that Sasquatchinakwa called home. The boulder was still there; it hadn't moved an inch since the last time we checked in with the only remaining lesbian couple of the show.
"Emily?" Briana called out, stepping over a mud puddle. "Emily, where are you?"
Emily, who was still inside the cave, looked up. She had been looking around the cave for another way out, but to no success. "B-Briana?"
Briana stopped, hearing her from inside the cave. "Emily, is that you?"
"N-no, it's Calvin." Emily sighed. "Yes, it's me!"
Briana stepped in front of the boulder, Emily on the other side. "How, may I ask, did you get in there?"
"W-well, I was looking for a place for us to f-film the preview, and I was c-checking inside the cave for b-bears or something, when..." Emily paused. She doubted that Briana would believe Sasquatchinakwa himself put the boulder in front of the cave. "...the boulder fell off the top of the cave. And traapped me in here."
Briana frowned at the boulder. Somehow she doubted Emily was telling the full truth here. But, who cares? "Um, is there another way out?" She realized it was a stupid question the minute it left her mouth.
"If th-there is, I haven't found it yet." said Emily, who sounded very tired.
Briana nodded, thinking for a few moments. Finally she said, "I'm going to look around the cave and see if there's another way out. Can you do the same on the inside?"
"I've been looking for a while... but I-I'll keep looking." Emily answered.
"We'll get you out of there soon, Em." Briana said soothingly, all thoughts of the challenge leaving her brain.
Lucian and Richard
A handshake, a few cameras turned the other way, and several copies of the Harry Potter video games exchanged later, the video game addict and the bumbling detective found themselves with a camera in front of Blaineley's private cabin. The hostess had managed to convince the Producers' workers to leave the cabin alone for the duration of the filming as well, and when the boys found their costumes for the movie preview, all they needed to do was film it.
Lucian had found himself a shiny police badge in the costumes' room to use for his part, while Richard was dressed in a black-and-white striped shirt with a black ski mask for his part of the evil criminal.
"Okay man, you ready to begin filming this?" Lucian asked, reading through a handbook for the videocamera that described setting a countdown before it began filming.
"Ready as I'll ever be." Came Richard's muffled reply through the ski mask.
"You don't have to wear that yet, you know. It looks kind of hard to breathe through that thing." said Lucian, looking up from the handbook.
"No no, it's cool. It's really snug!" said Richard happily.
Lucian looked back down. "Whatever you say, dude..."
Angie and Bunifa Latifa Halifa Sharifa Karifa
Finding the three animals that had grown fond of Angie turned out to be much easier than she expected. The three were hanging around the bonfire, having some animated conversation in their animal language about... something.
"Hey, guys!" Angie waved, kneeling down beside the beaver. She patted their heads, offering them each a couple of marshmallows before talking to them again.
"...I probably look ridiculous talking to a beaver, a raccoon, and a chipmunk on live TV, don't I? Whoops..." -Angie McLine
"So, I need your guys' help with something... my friend Bunifa and I are filming a preview for the challenge, and we could really use your help filming this, and you can't understand a word I'm saying, can you?"
He shrugs. -The Raccoon
She sighs. "Um, now what... Oh!" Standing up, she pulled the bag of marshmallows out. Instantly, the attention of all three critters was on her.
"You guys want the marshmallows?" She cooed, setting one on the ground, and then another, and then another, until she had a trail of marshmallows leading to the area where she and Bunifa would film their movie preview.
Bunifa was waiting for her by the cabins. One of them had been hastily decorated to look like a makeshift animal shelter, courtesy of the ghetto girl.
"There you are! So, how'd it go with your furry friends?" Bunifa asked as Angie stepped forward, the raccoon on her shoulder and the chipmunk in her arms, while the beaver clumbered behind. Each looked sleepy and full from all of the marshmallows.
"Well, they're here and ready to help!" Angie smiled, setting the chipmunk and raccoon down on the ground. "Let's get this show on the road! No pun intended, of course."
Blaineley, back at the camera rooms, decided at this point that everyone had enough time to get their preview done. And everyone was finished, excluding Emily and Briana, the former still trapped in the cave. But, there was nothing to be done about that.
Over the loudspeaker, she announced, "Would everyone please report to the Mess Hall? It is time to show us what your efforts have made!"
At the Mess Hall
"Okay, everyone! Do we have a volunteer to go first?" Blaineley asked, sitting beside Chef Hatchet at the judges' table.
"Didn't you say there would be a third mystery judge?" Zakk raised his eyebrow, holding the disk of the preview he and Samantha made.
"And besides, we're missing Emily and Briana!" said Lucian.
'Well, he was supposed to be here, but apparently the asshole can't get his priorities straight. As for Emily and Briana, well, if they don't want to be here, that's their problem." Blaineley shrugged.
Lucian was about to speak when the doors of the Mess Hall opened. "Sorry I'm late, Blainester. I gotta be honest, I'm surprised you wanted me to be the third judge, sweetheart."
Everyone looked slightly shocked as the man with the stubble walked in, running a hand through his black hair and taking his seat at the third judge's chair.
"Chef, my man, it has been waaay too long. You and I need to catch up sometime, bro!" Chris bumped his fist against Chef's, the tall chef grinning.
"Yo, Chris." said Chef.
"Good of you to finally join us, McLean." Blaineley smirked. "What, did your wife have to put on her makeup before you could leave? Oh wait," her smirk broadened, "you don't have one. That's right."
"Keep grinning Blaineley, you know you're just happy that I'm still available." Chris grinned back, wiping the smirk off of Blaineley's face.
Zakk made a retching motion, looking genuinely disgusted. The others nodded their agreement, not just Samantha and Bunifa.
"Anyways, do we have a volunteer?" Blaineley asked, looking through each of the contestants. Not one of them stepping forward.
"Well now, I guess I'll have to pick..." She gasped when she saw Lucian sitting down on one of the tables. "Lucian, that... is... MAHAGONY! You and Richard get to go first!" (1)
"What?" Lucian groaned, getting off of the mahagony table, he and Richard stepping forward.
"The name of your movie?" Blaineley asked as Richard handed her the disk, the two sitting down again.
"Caught Red-Handed." said Lucian proudly. He added, in a quieter voice, "It was the only thing I could think of..."
Blaineley nodded, putting the disk into the computer and waiting as their preview loaded on the screen.
*Entering the preview...*
The preview is completely dark at first, then opens to Blaineley's room, the lights turned off. The door opens slowly (for suspense), Richard stepping in lightly.
"Crime... is running rampant in the streets of the Undercity..."
The preview continued to show Richard taking various prop items the two had set in Blaineley's room, stowing them in his bag.
"Only one man has the courage to face the disaster of crime head on..."
Lucian entered the room then, tackling Richard and pinning him to the ground before the screen blacked out.
"Coming to theaters in August of 2012..."
*End of preview*
Blaineley, Chef, and Chris just stared blankly at the screen. "Um... what was that?" Chris asked, his feet on the table, absent-mindedly chewing the eraser of a pencil.
"Our preview..." Lucian said sheepishly.
"Time to give our opinions!" Blaineley said. The three judges looked quite comical, almost like the original American Idol judges. "Chef, you get to go first."
Chef looked up at them. "Okay, fruitcakes. You didn't explain much of anything, it was mostly a play on your lighting. I wasn't impressed. Four."
Blaineley went next. "Well, I have to agree with Chef. I'm willing to slide a little though, considering that we had about three hours to film this. I'll give you... a five."
Chris was the last one. "I hate to say crap over again, but what, what, WHAT was that? That was just kind of lame, dudes. Three."
Lucian and Richard sat down in the back with their heads hanging in shame, Blaineley taking their disk out and setting in on the table.
"Hey, you guys did your best." Angie said encouragingly to them. Bunifa patted Richard on the back consolingly.
"Next up, we have... Samantha and Zakk." She said, closing her eyes and picking on randomly.
*Entering the preview*
The scene opens up to a very violent start, Samantha sprawled on the ground, her eyes wide with fear. "P-please... please! Please, don't hurt me!" She begged, staring into the eyes of a wolf. Her dark orange hood (mercifully appearing red in the lighting) fell off of her head, the teenage girl backing away into the feet of a man (Zakk) holding an axe.
"A dark tale of romance, old rivalries..."
"These killings need to end!" Samantha said with her hood down to Zakk (as the woodcutter) in a different scene.
In a different scene, Zakk (as the werewolf) held her face in his hands, grinning. "I would never dream of hurting you, sweetheart."
"And a curse as old as time itself..."
The preview ended with Samantha giving a high-pitched scream, the camera fading to black.
"Coming to theaters in August, 2012."
*End of preview*
The three judges exchanged glances as Samantha and Zakk took their disk and sat back down.
"Well, fruitcakes, you did a little better. I got to admit, I might have gone to see this in theaters. Might have. I'll give you a six."
Blaineley was smiling. "That was great! An eight!"
Chef and Chris frowned at her. She glared back. "What? I liked it..."
Chris shook his head before he spoke. "I'm going to have to agree with Chef on this one. Six."
"We might have this!" Zakk grinned to Samantha.
"And finally, we have Bunifa Latifa Halifa Sharifa Karifa and Angie with their movie!"
Bunifa strode forward confidently. "Watch out, guys. This will be a drama movie to yank the tears right out of your face!"
"We'll see about that." Blaineley smiled, setting the disk in the computer.
*Entering the preview*
Angie and Bunifa were nose to nose and glaring at each other, both dressed up in their "gang" costumes. "This here, girl, is MY turf! You have crossed the McLight Gang for the LAST TIME!" Angie threatened.
"Ah, HELL no! My gang won this turf fair and square! Jamestons, get them!" Bunifa spat back, several flashes of animation suggesting that some sort of gang war was supposed to have taken place.
"The McLight and the Jameston Gangs have been at war for years... but when the local animal shelter is threatened, the two must put aside their differences... to save the animals."
"I don't like you... but this guy here is my pal. And I'm willing to work with you to save the animals." Bunifa said, looking comical as she pet the chipmunk while glaring at Angie.
"It's ALL for the animals." Angie glared back, looking equally comical as her finger played with the rabbit.
"Will the two learn to get along in time to save the animals? Find out... in August, 2012."
*End of preview*
The three judges stared at the screen blankly.
"Well, what'd I tell you? It made you want to cry, huh?" Bunifa said proudly.
"It's the PERFECT drama movie!" Angie added.
The three continued to stare... before snickering loudly.
"A drama? That was the best damn comedy preview I've seen in years! An eight!" Chef chuckled, wiping away a tear of laughter.
"Wait, what?" Bunifa said, her jaw dropping as the three continued to giggle.
"Oh yeah, I'd go see that comedy. I'm giving you two - hee hee - a nine!" Blaineley added, holding her stomach.
"B-but that's a drama movie!" cried Angie.
"That's hilarious, dudes. An eight!" Chris added, using Blaineley's shoulder as a support from laughing so much.
After several minutes, Blaineley finally stood up. "I think it's clear who the winners of immunity are today. Bunifa Latifa Halifa Sharifa Karifa, Angie, you both are safe from elimination tonight!"
Bunifa and Angie, still shocked that their drama had been mistaken for a comedy, both shrugged. "I'm going with this. Fuck it."
At that moment, Emily and Briana finally entered the room. "Huff... we're here!" Briana said, both looking embarrassed.
Blaineley, Chef, and Chris simply stared at her.
"...Crap..." -Briana Galvan
"We... we'll probably get e-eliminated, won't we? B-Briana or I..." -Emily Gaede
She groans, still looking at the camera. "Neither of us are going home. Not today. Not because of a smelly sasquatch. Nope, it's time to fix the challenge..." -Briana Galvan
The Elimination Ceremony
"On my tray, oh contestants of mine, I have seven glasses of sweet, delicious lemonade. There are eight of you standing before me today. One of you won't receive a glass of lemonade, a glass that protects you from elimination. When I call your name, come forward and claim your glass...
Bunifa Latifa Halifa Sharifa Karifa...
Emily and Samantha both realized that the two were seriously facing elimination now. Both looked nervous, Emily folding her hands in her lap while Samantha looked down.
"And the last glass goes to...
Emily let out a breath of relief, frowning sadly at Samantha as she claimed her glass half-heartedly.
"I-I'm leaving?" Samantha whispered.
"She's leaving?" Zakk asked in outrage, standing up. "No way! Look, give her my spot! Don't make her leave, come on!"
"Sorry Zakk, but it doesn't work that way." Blaineley shrugged. "Samantha, the Dock of Shame awaits."
Samantha sighed, turning to Zakk and hugging him tightly, the two exchanging a quick kiss. "Win t-this, okay? I'll m-miss you." She smiled, giving his hand a squeeze before stepping onto the Boat of Losers.
Zakk just stared absent-mindedly. "Win... yeah..." He shook his head. "I'll win this! I'll win it for you, Sam!"
Briana sighed sadly. She hated to meddle in others' love lives, but she knew Emily would've been eliminated if she hadn't.
"I won't split up a couple like that again. It's... not right. It was just this one time, just to protect Emily." -Briana Galvan
"Wow, what a day! Full of filmography, drama, love, and humor! Will Samantha fit in well at the studio? Ha, that's a stupid question, of course she will!"
"What studio?" Lucian asked in exasperation.
"Will Zakk actually win this for Samantha? And how long will Lucian last, considering he's officially Richard's friend?"
Lucian and Richard both gulped.
"Find out next time on Total... Drama... Blainerific!"
(1): In case you didn't catch the reference, that was a line in The Hunger Games. Because Blaineley makes me think of Effie Trinket and vice versa. xP
Um, yeah. About the Blaineley being a Potterhead thing, well, it was this headcanon of mine that Blaineley was secretly the best Internet troll of us all... and then a conversation with Female Darkish Cody happened and then Blaineley was a Potterhead and the next thing I knew, this happened. So... yeah. :P
Apologies for the failure of the previews. This is why I'm merely a fanfiction writer and not a movie preview filmer. xP
Thanks again to Another Dead Hero for the challenge idea! Apologies if it wasn't quite how you pictured it, heh. xD;;
Asdfjkl; guys I'm sorry about the slow updates. I'll try to have the next chapter up sooner, since I've actually had the events of the next chapter mapped out for several months now.
Read, review, comment, all that fun stuff! :D
