I just moved into a new place. It's totally adorable. It is kinda strange no longer having Irma and Guy Friday as roommates, but what can ya do? I do feel like there were plenty of stories I could have shared living with those two lovebirds, but maybe for another time. So here's what you may have missed Diary. Back in December the old offices of Diary of a Dorkette burned down in a terrible fire that nearly killed my best friend and mentor April O'Neil and one of her many enemies. Now that April has regained control of her company again and leased new office space for a totally new and shiny Diary of a Dorkette, she is throwing a ball to celebrate. However I haven't really been in the best of moods. I've been through heartbreak (my love Michelangelo married Mona Lisa and my other near romance with Bruce Wayne fizzled faster than some Pop Rocks.) So I have been going on countless dates with the weirdest men imaginable. My dear friend Glimmer has found herself in rehab. My other dear friend and personal hero She-Ra is missing and no one knows where she is. On top of that mutants are missing everywhere. There's someone stalking Sydney Rutledge from Swans Crossing. I mean come on Diary! There's so much going on that it's just a bit hard to keep up. It feels like just yesterday though that I wrote my first entry. I was a bit worried that I wouldn't have much to write about, but goodness, look at all that has unfolded 500 entries later... Maybe I do need to go to this ball. Now if only I could find something to wear...
And now with just over 10,000 photos and 500 posts later, a toy story you won't dare want to miss begins now!
Miss M Presents...
A Ball to Remember
Miss M: So you just appear out of nowhere? How about a knock on the door?
Miss M: Anger the universe?
Miss M: Are you sure you are a Fairy Godmother and not some homeless lady on LSD?
Are you certain?
Very well. Bibbity, bobbity, boo!
Miss M: I thought I was just getting some shoes made out of man made materials! I didn't know I'd only be getting half a dress!
Miss M: Lucky me. I get to keep half a busted dress. What do I even do about walking around?! People will totally be able to see my ass!
Meanwhile in the cold brutality of space...
Soon the biggest party unfolds at the grandest ball in the history of All My Toys!
More and more guests begin to arrive...
Aquaman: Or just a really convoluted comic.
Mermista: Ta da! It's something I've been working on.
Mona Lisa: It's breathtaking. I almost feel out of place.
Sydney: I get it. I grew up in Swans Crossing, so these kinds of events were like every weekend. Is Mikey here?
Mona Lisa: He's supposed to be.
Mila: You know Luigi.
Sydney: I think you got the wrong face.
Mila: Excuse me?
Mila: Oh please, what grand delusions are these?
Sydney: I have been stalked for months by someone dressed up as the killer from Scream. Now that's either been you or you have been paying someone to torture me!
Luigi: She speak-a tha truth.
Sydney: Well if we've both been attacked by the same person, who wants to hurt us?
Mila: That's a good question. Don't get me wrong, I'd love nothing more than to take you down and topple your media empire. In fact I tried doing that when I was in charge of Diary of a Dorkette, but I lost it all. Trust me though, you have it coming.
Mila: I'm dating one of the Luigi Brothers now, so I think I'm safe.
Sydney: Wait a minute. Our attacker looks like the killer from Scream. Garrett loved Scream.
Mila: Sydney, quiet! I don't want to talk about former high school flings in front of my new boyfriend.
Sydney: What if the guy we fought over in high school has been trying to kill us?
Sydney: Did you just hum something?
Sydney can just look on, unsure what to say...
Selina Kyle: I could say the same thing Bruce.
I don't know what you are talking about.
Bruce Wayne: She wants nothing to do with me.
April: Oh thank you. You look pretty amazing too, but come on, step away from the wall. Give this dress a twirl!
Miss M: I can't do that.
Miss M: I only have half the dress.
April: How many times have I told you to stop buying off the bargain rack?
April: Oh you girls and your fairy tales.
Zelda: (sighs) Of course. I guess now you'll want to go on and on about how lovely she is huh?
Link: Well Excuuuse me princess.
Bride of Frankenstein: I was invited. This is the event to be at. You look good.
Frankenberry: As do you.
Frankenberry: Yeah. After our wedding didn't happen, she and I got together.
Bride of Frankenstein: (looks shocked and ready to scream) You sure do find the ladies. I'm sorry. I wish you the best. Good bye.
Jasmine: (smiles) My uncle lives in the city. He owns a night club. Since I'm new to the city I thought I'd attend this party. I had no idea you'd be here.
Frankenberry: No. You were great. I would have been making a mistake. I can't believe you are here.
Jasmine: Well believe it. Wanna hit the appetizer bar? I heard the sliders are amazing.
chère, I have the best memory ever. I was the very first Heroic Hottie. Everyone remembers their first. No?
Casey: I think so. How could it not be?
Back in space...
The two struggle, but Jana is no match for She-Ra!
A return trip to the ball...
Miss M: Yeah. April thought they were too grody.
Miss M: I'll try!
Billy: This is some event. Oh, I see M. Wow. She really looks good. Except, wait a second, she's missing the back of her dress.
Billy: I'm glad she wore nice undergarments. We really need to find her a man.
Sulu: Trust me, she will find her love. If she can survive.
Billy: Excuse me?
Sulu: Hello. You may not know me right now, but you will in the future.
Sulu: Look, this might sound crazy, but I am from the future. Technically from the past, but I am from the future. And in this future our hearts are as one. Our matter is star dust and flecks of soul hot glued together like rhinestones on a denim jacket.
Billy: Did someone spike my punch?
Sulu: Your punch is far from spiked. I'm here to warn you. Your friend Miss M, she is in grave danger. My colleague warned her a few days ago but I was also sent here because things get bad in the future. For her and us. I know this is insane, but we love each other. I need you to trust me.Billy: What am I supposed to do?
Sulu: You must avoid anyone from space.
Sulu: I'm from the future. It's a bit different.
Billy: I'm so confused...
Mona Lisa: Hi.
Mona Lisa: Yes, that's a beautiful dress.
Mona Lisa: I think we need some food, come on honey.
Miss M: It hurts less and less. I just want him to be happy.
Raphael: Yeah, you've always had a fair heart M.
Miss M: Yeah. Just promise me something?
Raphael: Of course.
Miss M: Thanks. Who would have ever thought this is where our story would be? It feels like just yesterday that he swooped in to save me and profess his love at the 2013 Conference of Evil.
Miss M: Yeah. Alas, here we are.
Raphael: And I can totally see that you are missing half your dress. Are those lace?
Miss M: (sighs) Yeah. Thanks for noticing.
Raphael: No problem. I'm here for those kinds of things.
April: Well now that we have new offices to work out of again the sky is really the limit. I plan on securing some fabulous interviews in the next coming months. I definitely want to get an interview with that new crime fighting lady who goes by the name WoW. I think she is fascinating.
Jessica: Oh, an unwanted guest?
April: Glad you could arrive in your finest bar wench clothing. Now go grab a tray and pass out food.
April: More like haute mess. Now if you plan on causing a scene I'll throw you out.
April: You tried to steal my life and took away the chance to play myself in a major motion picture. How else am I to react?
April: Of course you are. But I'll tell you what, if you can get him to sit down for an interview, shirtless, than all can be mostly forgiven.
Megan Fox: I'll see what I can do.
April 2015 Heroic Hottie!
April 2015 Woman of Wonderosity!
A real quick trip back to space...
The ball continues...
Casey: Come on, I think the crowd wants a speech.
April: Oh I'm sure I can come up with a little something!
Miss M: (wipes her tears) Oh goodness, I'm sorry.
Miss M: (laughs through her tears) No. I'm just rocking a new trend that's all.
Bruce Wayne: I kinda like this new trend.
Miss M: Just keep your eyes up ok?
Miss M: I don't know. Maybe I do. I guess it's a bit of everything.
Bruce Wayne: Talk to me.
Miss M: Oh Bruce, you don't need to listen to this.
Bruce Wayne: But I want to.
Bruce Wayne: I know.
Bruce Wayne: No one special huh?
Miss M: No, not yet.
Miss M: I do always find my way back to you don't I?
Miss M: I'm not sure...
Miss M: Maybe so, but once Skeletor came back, something had happened to him up there. I fear the worst.
Miss M: You really think so?
She-Ra: Get it through your head, I have no information for you.
Lady Kale: I'm un-bothered by this. I've been around for far longer than you, I'll wait to find my answers.
She-Ra: What happens now? Because we are both incredibly powerful women. I won't stay a prisoner.
Suddenly, Miss M feels a familiar presence around her, trying to lift her up...
Bruce Wayne: I don't know, you tell me...
Bruce Wayne: I'm not sure.
Bruce Wayne: Hey, it's going to be ok.
As the two walk inside, another set of people come out of the shadows looking for trouble...
Moth Lady: Yes. That's the woman that was in my body for all those months.
Moth Lady: She is the one who slept with that man in my body and now I am carrying their spawn.
Vultura: What do we do? It's up to you.
Moth Lady: I just wanted to see her, to see how her life is unfolding while mine is tied to this thing growing inside me.
Vultura: Say the word and she is done for.
Lady Kale: And her little flying unicorn too.
There's only one way to find out. We keep searching.
He-Man soon hears a noise in the darkness and calls out, hoping someone hears him.
Out of the darkness, quickly made of star dust and forgotten dreams is a woman anew...
???: Hello. Brother.
The story continues soon!
