I have been on Dimension X for far too long, but my life is about to go back to normal. I have found a most pleasant gift, the gift of fuel. Samus and Deanna Troi have flown all the way from Earth to find me and now we are just waiting for the ship to be fueled up and then I will be off. Of course that comes with a price. I am returning home with the knowledge that April's dad has been living here. He does not plan on returning to Earth and I will more than likely keep that a secret until the day I die. I just wonder what my dear friend is doing on Earth. I am sure April O'Neil is involved in some sort of crazy shenanigan. Oh I can't wait to return to Earth. Secrets and all.
All My Toys
A Most Pleasant Gift
Inside the offices of Diary of a Dorkette...
April: Well I am not sure. With each day that passes the news just becomes more and more insane.
Lois Lane: I am referring to the order President Chocula executed a few days ago, where all the prisons in the country would be setting their inmates free.
April: Oh that's right. Superman is trying to save a failing franchise.
Lois Lane: It's not failing.
April: The truth? No one can keep up to know what the truth is. For every fact that is checked there are ten other articles and stories explaining a new version of the truth and how the facts are wrong. Believe me, there are reasons to share stories made of fluff.
Lois Lane: Oh we know some things are true. We know that right now every prison in this country is rolling out a plan to release every inmate throughout the next three months. Which means there will be lots of empty buildings. Companies that profit off of these prisons are going to effectively lose revenue.
April: I doubt that as well. However what could it all possibly mean? This all seems like a very huge what-if scenario. They could very well plan on tearing the prisons down and building malls.
April: Do not mention that tarp's name. Megan Fox wishes she could be a respected journalist. Just because she played me in a movie about my life does not make her a true journalist!
April: Fine! I get it. Let's shed some light on what the hell is really going on. I'm in.
Meanwhile across the universe at a stellar bar in Dimension X...
Deanna Troi: Wonderful. I sense a great deal of strange energy in this place now that more ships have begun to arrive. I feel we are leaving at a very good time.
Deanna Troi: Very well.
Deanna Troi: (smiles) Yes, well, normal does not always seem to work in my favor. I am here to help a friend. I was never expecting to see you here.
William Riker: Can you blame me? What else would I have going for me? I thought I had a life all set but it seemed someone else did not feel the same way.
Deanna Troi: Yes. I also needed a change of pace from everything. Space exploration is draining. I couldn't do that and be the woman you needed.
William Riker: I've thought about you often. A few times I even thought about stopping on Earth just to see how you were.
Deanna Troi: What stopped you? Please don't say Risa.
Deanna Troi: Will, I would have appreciated a visit from you. It would have meant something special...
Deanna Troi: Umm, this is my...
William Riker: (quickly speaks up) Former colleague. I'm Commanding Officer William T. Riker of the USS Enterprise.
Samus: Nice. I am Samus Aran, I work for the Galactic Federation. Well, I am currently a super hero on Earth. I am a part of this unnamed super hero team, Deanna has recently...
Samus: Very well. Don't be too long. We have to leave this place.
Deanna Troi: I understand.
William Riker: Nice meeting you.
William Riker: Or you could change your mind and join us again on the Enterprise. Everyone misses you.
Deanna Troi: I am sure they do. I keep in touch with a few of them when I can. You will have to tell everyone I said hello.
Deanna Troi: Will, sign or not, I can't join you. My home is on Earth. I never thought I'd say that, but after all this time, it is where I feel I belong.
William Riker: You were going to say something, before your traveling companion arrived. What was it?
In another part of Dimension X...
Maleficent: Yes. I suppose it is.
Miss M: I thought you'd try to keep me here.
Ed: We have been here for awhile.
Ed: Yes. I believe so.
Maleficent: I always do the right thing my dear. Eventually.
Maleficent: My goodness why does everyone think I am up to something?!
Maleficent: Oh pish posh, those days are long gone. I'm her Fairy Godmother now for crying out loud.
Maleficent: Yes my dear boy, good bye.
Back on Earth in a Dairy Queen...
Bruce Wayne: No.
Yvie: (giggles) Yay! Brooding! What does that word mean?
Bruce Wayne: (laughs) Yes. You do. Thank you for meeting us.
April: Yes. Sort of. Her name is Deanna Troi and she is a fabulous counselor. I think she is on vacation though because she is not returning my phone calls.
April: I do. I think she will do wonderful work with Yvie. Is Yvie still having nightmares?
April: Bruce, that does not sound normal. Have you taken her to a doctor?
April: Well it might just be nothing. Her life has been a bit hectic and that might be the only reason she is experiencing those nightmares. Once she gets settled in more...
Bruce Wayne: No April. Something happened to her. Something really bad.
Bruce Wayne: I think the food is ready.
Across town at the new hideout of the unnamed super hero team...
Billy: Yeah, Brian said he just needs a few more parts and then she will be up and running again. Thank you Janine for allowing us to use this space.
Billy: We will find a more permanent place soon, for now this is as good as it can be I am afraid.
Billy: Yeah, I have no idea what we are going to do with Geoffrey.
He-Man: Yes. That is how it works.
He-Man: I'm shocked, truly.
He-Man: Well that is good.
Geoffrey: Can you think of a time that was just magical and made you oh-so-happy?
Barbie: I am just happy to be out of space and back with you guys. Any ideas what we should do next?
Quick Charge: Yeah. We have Cobra right on our tails. So we need to find a way to stop them. And we have to protect Geoffrey from Bane. You think we can do this Oola?
Quick Charge: I wonder what that is about?
Barbie: Who knows, let's go get some pizza.
Back on Dimension X!
Haggar: You found Mon*Star.
Haggar: Aren't we all?
To be continued!
