What would happen to the Smurfs and Snorks if the sun goes through it's death cycle, on it's way on becoming a red giant. This story would reveal what would happen to them all the way to the end, starting by the Smurf and then the Snorks that soon follows. Viewer Discretion is Advised.
It was unusually hot at the Smurf Village at this time of the month, even though it's summer. The temperature's 37 degrees Celsius and the Smurfs are struggling to keep their mushroom homes cooled down, the nearby body of water helps quench their thirst for a while but they have been sweating non-stop.
Papa Smurf has no idea why it's so hot, so hot that his beard is insulating the heat on his chin. He can't bare to go outside but he has too, in order to keep check with the Smurfs to make sure that they don't die from Heat Stroke.
He shades his eyes from the sun's bright light with his hand, the sun has been also unusually bright. The only person who knows about Thermodynamics is a particular grass green Smurf who stands 4 apples tall and is very skinny, he usually wears a camouflaged Smurf hat, jacket, and pants. Today, he isn't wearing his camouflage jacket revealing his skinny torso. So skinny in fact Papa Smurf could see the Smurf's ribs, the green smurf in question was sleeping on the ground sunbathing outside his Mushroom Home and is close to the nearby lake.
"Chernov, I need your help," said Papa Smurf as he approaches Chernov.
Chernov woke up from his nap and got to his feet, after stretching Papa Smurf noticed that the green smurf isn't sweating. "What, you don't like hot weather?" asked Chernov, "Not even 37 degree heat can stop me, so what do you want?"
"I need your help on figuring out why it's so hot," said Papa Smurf, "Every smurf in the village is being smurfed by the heat and the wind isn't blowing much."
Most of the smurfs were out having a swim in the water, trying to cool down awhile having fun at the same time. If Smurfette's bathing suit isn't eye catching enough, then seeing Vanity using his mirror to set Brainy on fire is. Using the sun's rays, he managed to set Brainy's smurf hat on fire as he sits underneath a tree reading a book. Once the smurf found out that his head is on fire, he dropped his book and jumped into the lake screaming.
Everyone laughed, since Chernov isn't a smurf who laughs he cracked a smile at the sight of Brainy's humiliation. "Your right, I should figure out what's going on here," he said, still smiling as he watches Brainy scramble out of the water with his Smurf Hat still smoldering, "First off I need to measure the temperature of the air, in fact I have some thermometers to do just that. I love being the Village Scientist, even though I'm a Chemist but other Scientific Smurfs will do just fine."
Chernov walked inside his mushroom house and managed to grab a Weather Forecasting Post with 4 weather measuring instruments. It stands 3 apples tall and was painted white, all the meters read a different type of measurement. One measures Atmospheric Pressure, another measures Humidity, another measures Wind Speed and Direction, and finally the last meter reads the temperature of the air... in Kelvin.
After planting the Post straight into the ground, Chernov gives a Weather Measurment. "Looks like the temperature is 310 Kelvins," he says as he watches the Kelvin Thermometer heats up to that number, "Barometer meter is quite high and for some reason there isn't very much wind speed today, Humidity is also getting high so we'll might be having rain soon."
"Sorry, I don't understand what you just said about that Kelvin thing," said Papa Smurf.
"Oh, its a measurement I use for Scientific Experiments and Weather Forecasting to identify the temperature." explains Chernov, "273 K is Melting Point, 373 K is Boiling Point, and 296 K is Room Temperature. You want something more simpler?"
"Yes," said Papa Smurf.
"Ah, finally some Constructive Criticism in order to improve my work." said Chernov, "I never even use Kelvin for everyday purposes, let me get a more easier understood Thermometer."
Chernov removes the Kelvin thermometer and went back inside his home for a brief second and came back out with a new Thermometer, after placing it on the post he reads the thermometer for Papa Smurf. "37 degrees Celsius," he said, "You can't get more accurate than that, all the humans in the world use Celsius for weather forecasting except a Human Superpower who's name I can't recall don't use it that much."
"Is it going to get better or worse?" asked Papa Smurf.
"Worse, might increase a few degrees in the next few days." said Chernov, "The good news is that we'll might have a high chance of rain coming tomorrow morning due to the increase amount of evaporation going on, the bad news is I doubt it would cool things down."
"Thank you Chernov for such Smurfing news," said Papa Smurf as he begins to walk away.
"I'll do some measurements in the water to check in on other things for you," said Chernov, "Just try to stay in the shade as I catch some sunlight for the moment."
As Papa Smurf walked away, Chernov went looking for Brainy and found the Smurf putting on a new Smurf hat. "Hey Brainy, you know where Feathers is?" asked Chernov.
"Why?" asked Brainy.
"I need the feathered bird for some instrument of mine to measure the temperature up in the air," said Chernov, "Where is he?"
"He's somewhere, I have no smurfing clue where but I'm sure he'll come around," said Brainy, "I think he's with the Smurflings since they spend a lot of time with him."
"Okay then, thanks for the help." said Chernov.
Chernov left the house and try to track down the Smurflings, he soon found them with Feathers. As Chernov walks up, Feathers got quite frightened at him since Chernov "accidentally" shot at him awhile mid-air several times. But the bird immediately calmed down as Chernov strokes the crane's neck, "Feathers, I got a job for you." said Chernov, "It isn't very much, I need to get a measurement up high in the sky."
Feathers seemed interested as the Smurflings sat by and listened, "You don't have to do it right away, every time you are out flying I'll be able to measure the temperature up high in the sky. For better results, try flying 30 minutes at a time. Whatever you do, it isn't very much since you don't have to do very much effort on your part. Would you do it for the sake of the Smurfs?"
The bird nods his head in reply, "Great, allow me."
Chernov managed to stick a small ankle bracelet around Feathers' foot, it was white and it had line textures on it. Feathers soon took off into the sky, as Chernov and the Smurflings looked on. "I sure hope the heat doesn't kill that crane," said Chernov, "This would make things difficult for the village if he's gone."
