Volume 1: a Foolish Faerietale

Episode 38# "InubuYAKasha, the full-length animated movie…" By Emily.
[This actually was drawn as a comic strip and has been written in script form. Someday I will redraw it, as it was in sketchy pencil, and Flib looked like she was feeding Pizza to her chest, and add it to the InubuYAKasha archives...]

PAGE 1. PANEL 1. A RESTAURANT DOORWAY INT. FLIBBAGE, YAKKY, AND J ARE FRAMED WITHIN IT.
FLIB; (standing in foreground, cheerfully.) Voila! One Norwegian Pïzzä Høt!

SPROUT; (Behind Flibbage, confused expression) (thought bubble) What was all that about matching underwear…?

YAKKY; (standing behind Sprout, staring at the back of her head)

J; (in background, not paying attention,) (thought bubble) Mmmm… Pizza

PAGE 1, PANEL 2
RESTAURANT INT. ALL THE RESTAURANT PATRONS TURN AROUND AND COLLECTIVELY GASP IN SHOCK.

PAGE 1 PANEL 3
COLOURED B/G. YAKKY LEANS OVER TO FLIBBAGE AND WHISPERS IN HER EAR. FLIBBAGE LOOKS SHOCKED
[Em, redraw this soon, this doesn't read brilliantly][folk off, I have a job, nine hours of uni per day in the week, a webcomic to uphold, a boyfriend, and a social life. I do no strictly unnecessary drawing...]
YAKKY; Flib! We look like complete freaks!

FLIBBAGE; oh yeah!

PAGE 1 PANEL 4
SOUND EFFECT; PING!!!

NARRATIVE; Flibbage uses her magic to make everyone look more 'normal'.

THE FOUR FIGURES ARE SHOWN IN A ROW ON A BLANK B/G, STRIKING CHEESY CATALOGUE POSES.

ON THE LEFT IS FLIBBAGE IN KNEE LENGTH BLACK BOOTS, A MINISCULE BLACK SKIRT AND A TIGHT DARK GREEN TOP WITH FLARED MEDIEVAL-STYLE SLEEVES. HER HAIR IS TIED INTO TWO BUNS ON EITHER SIDE OF HER HEAD. HER WINGS ARE INVISIBLE. SHE'S ALSO DITCHED THE WAND AND TIARA.

NARRATIVE; Flibbage! Minus wings and scary hairdo, and wearing sensible clothing- for her.

NEXT IS BEANSPROUT, WHO, INSTEAD OF THE BLUE, BLOODSTAINED AND DIRTY DUNGAREES WITH INCONGRUOUS YELLOW DUCK COUPLED WITH A PINK JUMPER, IS WEARING A BLACK SHIRT AND JEANS. SHE IS ALSO WEARING A NECKLACE WITH THE IMAGE OF A SMALL SWORD ON IT. SHE STILL LOOKS CONFUSED.

BEANSPROUT; (thought bubble) Underwear?!!

NARRATIVE; Beansprout! She's been cleaned up to stop her looking like an escaped serial killer, and the Sword of Slayskull has become a necklace, how clever.

THIRD IN LINE IS YAKKY, WHO IS STILL LOOKING VAGUELY SULKY, DRESSED IN JEANS AND A TEE-SHIRT. HE IS IN HUMAN FORM, AND HIS HAIR IS TIDY.

NARRATIVE; Yakky! You may recall that in pre-werewolf times, or whilst dead, Yakky is meant to be pretty damn cute, even if he was repulsive as a child.

LAST IS J, LOOKING SMUG AND MUCH THE SAME AS EVER IN HIS BLACK SUIT AND WHITE SHIRT.

NARRATIVE; J doesn't change. He's too cool…

NARRATIVE; Now at least they just look weird as apposed to scary and abnormal…

PAGE 2 PANEL 1

NARRATIVE; later on…

THE FOUR OF THEM ARE GATHERED ROUND A TABLE SHARING A PIZZA. ON THE LEFT IS J, ABOUT TO TAKE A BITE FROM A SLICE. NEXT IS YAKKY, HAS HIS ARMS FOLDED AND IS ANGLED SLIGHTLY AWAY FROM BEANSPROUT, BUT HES LOOKING SIDELONG AT HER. SHE IS SAT NEXT TO HIM, THOUGHTFULLY STARING INTO SPACE, ONE HAND RESTED ON HER CHIN. LAST IN LINE IS FLIB, WHO IS HOLDING A PIECE OF PEIZZA BUT SEEMS TO BE GUESTURING WITH IT RATHER THAN EATING IT.[just like her mum-][ Shut the hell up Alice…]

FLIBBAGE; So some freak claiming to be the guardian of the sword or whatever, told you it's the Thing we've been looking for, then advised you on the green cross code and your underwear?

BEANSPROUT; Yeah. I'm hoping that bit was cryptic.

PAGE 2 PANEL 2

CLOSEUP OF BEANSPROUT AND FLIBBAGE, FLIBBAGE RAISES ONE EYEBROW, BEANSPROUT IS LAUGHING QUIETLY.

FLIBBAGE; Well if it's anything like as useful as the last prophecy, we can just forget it right now.

BEANSPROUT; heh.

PAGE 2 PANEL 3

CLOSEUP ON FLIBBAGE, WHO IS GRIMACING.

FLIBBAGE; I mean it was really stupid, and it wasn't as if it told us anything that hadn't already happened.

PAGE 2 PANEL 4

CLOSEUP ON YAKKY, HE SHRUGS

YAKKY; As I recall, it caused more trouble than it solved, we spent so much time looking for a laptop. Dear god why didn't we just ask Red?
[I'm glad I carried on reading 'cos this bit is new][ No IT ISNT!][ Stop yelling at me][ Stop being thick][Mardy Cow.]

PAGE 2 PANEL 5

WISTFUL EXPRESSIONS ON BEANSPROUT, YAKKY AND FLIBBAGE.

BEANSPROUT; Still, those were the days, huh guys?

VARIOUS THING S ARE FLOATING IN THE AIR AROUND THEM, CHEERFUL MEMORIES; EACH ONE HAS AN ARROW POINTING AT IT, TELLING YOU WHAT IT IS.

*Wistful Expressions*

*La, la, la, the fun we had etc…*

*sigh*

*shiny laptop*

*Yak*

*Adorable pink beetle*

*Happy ghost*

*La, la, la such happy memories…*

AMONGST THEM IS A SMALL STICK FIGURE VERSION OF J'S FACE FLOATING IN THE AIR, THE TEXT ATTACHED TO IT READS *V. Far away J.*

J; Uh hello?

PAGE 2 PANEL 6

THEIR FACES CHANGE TO ANGRY AS THEY REALISE THEY ARE LIVING IN A DREAMWORLD.
YAKKY; Hey wait! I was ugly! - Then I died.

BEANSPROUT; And I was a cynical, rude five year old! - No- wait I'm still cynical and rude.

FLIBBAGE; And I was only six inches tall! - But apart from that I reckon I was okay.

J'S FACE IS STILL A STICK FIGURE FLOATING IN SPACE, A SIGN NEXT TO HIM READS, *Further away…*
J; And I wasn't there! Har Har. Uh, is anyone actually listening to me??

PAGE 3 PANEL 1

NARRATIVE; Later on still… (This is a series of sketches rather than any kind of a plot)

CLOSEUP OF FLIBBAGE, HOLDING THE SWORD-NECKLACE LOOKING INCREDULOUS.

FLIBBAGE; I can hardly believe this useless sword is the Thing! I hope it does something cool.

PAGE 3 PANEL 2

SHE HANDS IT BACK TO BEANSPROUT, WHO TIES IT BACK ROUND HER NECK.

PAGE 3 PANEL 3

ALL FOUR OF THEM ARE SITTING IN A ROW AGAIN.

YAKKY; Well who would have guessed..?

J; not me.

BEANSPROUT; or me. What about you Flib? I bet you knew and you were just being an arsy Faery as usual.

FLIBBAGE; Ahaha! Of course I knew! I just didn't tell you losers!

FLIBBAGE'S INNER VOICE; *Inner Voice* LIAR! LIARRR… You didn't have a clue!!!

PAGE 3 PANEL 4

FLIBBAGE LOOKS UP INTO THE AIR AS IF THINKING.

FLIBBAGE; I'm going to buy us all some drinks. J, you'd better help me carry them…?

PAGE 3 PANEL 5

J LOOKS DISMAYED.

J; But I don't wanna! Somebody else do it! She'll start singing again! Please?!!

PAGE 3 PANEL 6

WIDE ANGLE SHOT; SHE ANGRILY DRAGS HIM AWAY BY THE SCRUFF OF THE NECK.

FLIBBAGE; Come on Numbskull!

J; Help meeeeee!

FLIBBAGE (QUIETLY) You are so thick! We are leaving them alone together!

J; oh yeah…

PAGE 3 PANEL 7

THESE FIRST PANELS ARE QUITE SMALL AND ONLY TAKE UP HALF THE PAGE, THE REST FADES TO BLACK, BUT IN THE CENTER IS A BOX WITH ONE LAST PANEL IN IT. YAKKY AND BEANSPROUT SIT ON EITHER SIDE OF THE TABLE IN SILENCE LOOKING UNCOMFORTABLE.

YAKKY; …
(THINKS) Must be conversational…

BEANSPROUT; *cough*
(THINKS) I hate Flibbage….
