Chapter one: ordinary



What should have been an ordinary adventure leads to something that should have been left forgotten.



Laverna perched herself on the rooftop of the Shreveport municipal auditorium with a mischievous smirk across her face.



Shreveport was a city; vile usually ignored except for when double trouble hid here all those years ago,



She watched her coworkers tighten the ropes on the building.



The night air whipped through her; she was glad she wore a red hooded coat.



“Hurry up, Carmen doesn't have all day, ya know,” Laverna impatiently remarked like she was in control of this heist.



Lars vegas teased “Stop being so bossy, you weathervain,”



Laverna rolled her eyes at the insult. “I”m a lookout, Remember?” she fussed



“You stand out like a sore thumb, kid.” he honestly replied wanting to get this job over with.



Laverna’s face reddened in being called a kid. Not like she could change their opinions. She's the youngest and the smallest of them.



Everyone climbed inside the building except our rebellious protagonist of this disturbing tale.



The auditorium lifted up into the sky by a powerful helicopter.



Laverna fell flat on her butt and laughed it off as they sped away



Laverna chuckled “the building left elvis,”



Only the statue of Elvis Presley remained on the block.





The following day in san Francisco, CA at the acme detective agency.



Ruslan was working on figuring out the case and all it's tiny details.



His red glasses forever sliding down his chubby nose making his vision get increasingly blurry.



His dog Herbert was curled up under the wooden desk snoring loudly as the pup had a very long day yesterday.



The detective squinted causing his glasses to go back into their proper place.



It was quite literally busy work until the news hit.





Tenchi was passing the time reviewing dossiers and offering one of Kylie’s bosses suggestions on organizing his collection of spores, molds, and fungus online. Kylie felt the less said about that the better, besides her blood collection was always neatly sorted and organized alphabetically in vials. Kylie said, “If he kept just the spores this would be easier as they become mold or fungus. Blood keeping is an easier hobby.”



Tenchi said, “Everyone who collects thinks that way you know. My train collection is nice though wouldn’t you say?” Kylie said, “And so are you planes and automobiles. You don’t count on this issue Tenchi, you collect life size things and store them in a house the size of a mountain.” Tenchi said, “Details, details.”



Good evening Mr and Mrs Detective and all the ships at sea. Let’s go to press, FLASH! The Shreveport Municipal Auditorium has been stolen! Authorities suspect Carmen Sandiego and her VILE henchmen are to blame and with resources stretched thin, are calling on ACME Detective Agency to solve the case!



Tenchi said, “Well looks like we have to put proper mildew storage on hold for now it seems, duty calls.” Kylie wondering how Tenchi could say such things and keep a straight face added, “Let’s just get to Shreveport fast mushroom boy.”



After Arriving at the scene, the missing auditorium had a huge crowd outside it. Ruslan sighed “Crowds?” As he snuck through them a stranger in the crowd explained There was a lady in a red coat on top of the building.”, “It appeared she didn't have a fedora,” another one cried out. Ruslan smirked “Looks like Laverna was seen,”



However, A mysterious young man bumped into him and picking his wallet. He was annoyed at how empty the wallet was. “Im so sorry, you dropped this.” the man smoothly said as Ruslan sighed as he took it back only to be met with quite familiar eyes. He’d seen them somewhere before, but where









The ACME Cirrus Jet arrived at the airport with Tenchi lamenting they didn’t use an ACME Da62. Kylie not fussing over plane options hailed a taxi to take them to the auditorium. Upon arrival they saw a crowd of people gathered around the auditoriums previous location. Tenchi said, “I hope they weren't planning a concert soon. Now lets find Ruslan. He might be over there with the ketchup packets.” Kylie insisted that the vegetable oil vendor was more likely but that would have to wait as they looked for clues.



They soon learned that Laverna was the likely culprit and wondered if Santa would put Charcoal Wine in her stocking. It was fortunate that crowds of curious people always produced useful info when needed. Tenchi and Kylie went about learning all that they could about Laverna’s possible whereabouts. Hopefully she wouldnt have gotten too far

Meanwhile at a nearby undisclosed location…



Laverna was being scolded for her recklessness by Carmen herself. Although the words was mostly ignored because why does Carmen sandiego get to do all the elabrote stunts. Carmen explained with concern “You could of fallen to your death,” “But I didnt ,” Laverna argued. Carmen tried to make the most unpredictable one to think about her safety for once. Laverna left slamming the wooden door almost off the hinges. Her leather boots squeaking as she escaped back into Shreveport for her own crime spree.



The night turned to daylight as she pick pocketed and stole to her wicked delights. The older she got, the more devious she became. Fine jewelry and cold hard cash loaded her coat’s pockets as the hours ticked on. She smirked as she thought about the fact she went rogue. Laverna explained her situation to a concerned pigeon. “She shouldn't be so overprotective, I'm not a kid anymore and she isn't my mother.”



Tenchi and Kylie spotted Ruslan as they headed out to the city to look for Laverna. They came across multiple victims of theft and pressed onwards. Tenchi surmised that Laverna was rebelling as these crimes did not fit Carmen’s methods. Tenchi said, “I hope she isn’t huffing and puffing too much not to mention her actions don’t have any rhyme or reason to them.” Kylie agreed the pattern was sporadic and had no overarching goal. They continued to track Laverna through the city recording clues as they went



Ruslan had his own method of tracking down his girlfriend.



He knew she was most likely hiding in an alleyway as she isn't fond of being out in the open.



Luckily downtown, didn't have many alleys so he began searching for her with his own knowledge.



His dog Herbert also sniffed around for her.



If a ferret ran by they would know she was here.



However, She doesn't always use a furry friend to commit her crimes.



“Lav?” he cried out as he searched behind dumpsters and up fire escapes.



He found her talking to a pigeon.

“Hey, babe.” He smiled dorkily



“Bye,” She answered as she ran directly into traffic



“Wait up,” he cried out as he and she raced through the cars.



Jewelry and cash fell from her coat and she was surprisingly fast as she disappeared again.



“Laverna!” he groaned





Tenchi observing the situation saw how reckless laverna was behaving and knew she had to be stopped soon. Tenchi said, “She needs to be distracted before she gets hurt.” They both decided to setup various jalapeño themed locations in order to draw her out of hiding. Kylie said, “Hopefully we can stop her before she gets run over. Though if that happens I have number of coffins to pick from.”



Tenchi knowing Kylie knew veiled concern when he heard it. He told her it wouldn’t come to that and to worry about the auditorium being found. They decided to attend a secret council meeting of concerned individuals. But they had to split up first. Tenchi would use his knowledge of the land to find the best places to place jalapeño food and merchandise, while Kylie searched for witnesses.



Meanwhile there was general chaos in the ranks of those who loved Elvis and a particular group of kids in particular had their plans ruined. They were told by a wise old Impersonator to journey to the Shreveport Municipal Auditorium as part of his training. But those plans were scrapped as they found out it was stolen by VILE. Coming across some henchmen they were spotted and quickly ran away. The henchmen chased the kids to a river which they managed to cross in a small boat. The henchmen not fond of bathing of any sort backed away slowly in disgust from the water.



While Tenchi was resting in a pub after getting the bartender to agree to host a jalapeno party, he was approached by a group of kids. They had been watching him curiously and decided to go into the pub even though that was illegal. The bartender told them he was an ACME detective named Tenchi though the locals around here had come to call him "Wanderer". One of the kids dressed as Elvis said in awe, "Wanderer". The bartender taking pity on the kids told them that the pub connected to a adjacent hotel and they could stay in a room for the night.



As night fell the kids slept in an upstairs room but they were beset upon by VILE henchmen who had managed to track them down after crossing a bridge over the river. They slowly crept toward the children sleeping in their beds and suddenly ripped the covers off. But to their dismay the beds were empty as the kids had placed pillows under the covers to fool them. They ran up to the rooftop but were cornered by the henchmen furious at being deceived. The leader of them approached and demanded that Little Elvis give him the glasses.



Refusing he backed away slowly in fear and as the henchmen closed in Tenchi ambushed them and started to drive them back. The henchmen scattered in all directions and the kids followed Tenchi to safety. He told them they worked for someone codenamed "Topperman" and he was trying to find the legendary glasses of Elvis. Clutching the glasses in hand Little Elvis said, "I don't know what you're talking about." Tenchi said, "Don't take m for a fool boy! Any guitar player knows the Kings glasses when they see them." Tenchi told them he was taking them to see Lord Elvisor and they made haste to the Council meeting.



As they made their way through the woods Tenchi decided to setup another jalapeno location but as he was kneeling down, he found a sword at his neck. A familiar voice said, "What's this? A detective off his guard?" Tenchi knowing who spoke rose to tell Kylie about the developing situation. Kylie told Tenchi that she could get Little Elvis to the Elvises faster than he could on her horse. It was agreed that Kylie would take Little Elvis while the rest of his friends went with Tenchi. Kylie sped off on her trusty white steed she had gotten from "Rent-A-Wreck" a horse rental service. As she raced through the woods however, VILE henchmen came up behind her riding motorcycles.



They chased Kylie through the woods determined to catch her as Kylie thinking fast led them to a shallow river. Kylie had made her way safely across but once again the henchmen were hesitant to touch "The liquid of grimes bane". The leader shouted at Kylie, "Give us the child detective!" Kylie drew her sword and defiant said, "If you want him; come claim him!" Knowing their boss wouldn't accept failure this time, they forced themselves into the water. This was part of Kylie's plan and on getting to the midway point she spoke a spell-themed password that caused her computer to hack the sluice gate further upstream, causing a massive flow of water to come and wash the crooks away.



Kylie then raced towards the council meeting area with Little Elvis. When they arrived all concerned Elvises of prominence were gathered in attendance after receiving an invitation from Lord Elvisor. He began the council meeting saying, "Fans from distant lands and hip shaking friends of old, you have been summoned here to answer the threat of VILE. Elvis fandom stands on the brink of destruction none can escape it. You will unite, or you will fall! Each of us is bound to this task this one doom. Bring forth the glasses Little Elvis."



Little Elvis did as instructed and placed the glasses on a table in the center of the council room. Those in attendance began whispering among themselves as they saw the glasses were indeed real. But before talk of using the glasses power against VILE could be allowed to build, Tenchi said, "You can not wear them none of us can. The glasses belong to the King alone, they have no other master." Incensed an angry Elvis impersonator shouted, "And what would a detective know of this matter!" Suddenly a familiar voice spoke aloud, "This is no mere detective! He is Tenchi the grandson of Lord Katsuhito! And wielder of the guitar Djinn!" The Impersonator shocked said, "This is Tenchi? This is Katsuhito's heir?" Tenchi said, "Zack calm down." The Impersonator then said, "Rock n Roll has no king. Rock n Roll needs no king."



It was decided that the glasses would be protected by ACME along with the other kids who volunteered to keep following Little Elvis. Lord Elvisor then said, "Eight companions. So be it! You shall be the Fellowship of the King!" Tenchi, Kylie, and Zack knew things were just getting started as one of the kids said, "Where are we going? And are we there yet?"





Laverna ran smack into her genderbent doubleganger



“Hiya, sis; it's time to come home He chuckled



“Charles?” laverna asked as she tried to escape only to be dragged into a mysterious van by men in black suits.

Chapter 2: The truth



It wasn't long till laverna realized she wasn't at Shreveport anymore.



The ropes and duct tape hurt her as she laid flat in the back of the van.



They must of been driving for hours and the occasional cigarette butt landed on her burning her.



A crude voice of her twin brother Charles taunted her “Thought you could get away, after you saw mom bleeding out,”



Laverna was actively chewing on the tape covering her mouth hoping to escape and beat his butt



She was forgetting there was about 30 men much taller and stronger in the van.



A few tears trembled down her face as the seconds confirmed her fate.



Meanwhile...

Carmen grew worried as laverna hadn't been seen in 24 hours.



She hadn't been arrested and there was no proof she was still running around causing entropy to those who come across her path.



She immediately knew something was wrong and called tenchi up to inform him that laverna was now missing.







The fellowship wandered near and far in and around Shreveport. They learned the identity of Topperman was in fact VILE henchman Top Grunge. Tenchi told them that now they knew their enemy and stopping him would be easy. He said, “All we need is soapy water and he’ll surrender immediately.”



Just then Tenchi’s phone rang and on the other end was Carmen herself. She told Tenchi Laverna was missing. Tenchi told her if she was fine she would show up at one of the jalapeño locations they setup. In the meantime they would keep searching. Kylie contacted ACME and had a missing persons report filed.



The fellowship followed the clues to a junkyard. They saw the tallest mountain of garbage had been turned into a base. A sign read “Mt. Grunge” and that visitors were not welcome. Top Grunge was alerted to the Fellowship’s arrival and that an army of Elvises had joined them. Sensing his end was near he ordered his men to attack.



Top Grunge rode forward on his motorcycle defiant and prepared for battle. His forces were confident of victory until they saw the Fellowship and Elvises pull out buckets full of soap and water. Even worse for them Little Elvis had snuck to the top of Mt. Grunge and triggered a crane to knock into it. The mountain collapsed while Top Grunge and his men shrieked in fear from the sight of so much soap. Fleeing backward they were covered by a wave of trash.



Authorities swarmed the junkyard and Top Grunge and his men were arrested and taken away. Carmen wondered if anyone in VILE was at fault for Laverna’s disappearance. Tenchi suggested it may be someone from her past who knows her. All relevant suspects were being investigated and their last known whereabouts reported by police.





Eventually the van stopped and laverna rolled headfirst into seats in front of her.



If her mouth wasn't tapped shut she would of cursed them out.



The burns stinged as a huge man scooped her up like a rag doll.



Poor laverna couldn't escape her past forever.



They appeared to be in the middle of no where and she was brought inside a worn down looking mansion.



Upon the wall was a ripped up family portrait of a mother and two children.



It was stained over with a mysterious rusty substance that laverna hoped wasn't blood.



Charles greeted “Welcome home, Charlet saylor, 6 years away, that's a riot and I'm sure your mother is dying to see you again.”



Laverna barely remembered her family but that portrait and how did she know this man was her twin brother.



The brawly man sat her on the couch and ripped the duck tape off her mouth.



Her lips spilt and they bled.



If only her phone didn't ring at that moment.



Ruslan called her assuming she was playing dead or something



Only to be met with a stranger’s voice answering instead.



“If you want her to live, better not come for her.” the gruff man said before slamming the phone under his steel toe boots.



Laverna couldn't protest as she was being forced to drink a bottle of water by her twin





She gagged and nearly choked but it was just pure water.



“Dont need ya dying yet.” Charles said as he removed it from her lips



Ruslan looked at tenchi and the others with his jaw dropped.

"umm what are the chances it's the mafia?" he asked gloomily

deep down he wished it was a prank

sticking his phone in his pocket and turning away to not be seen crying over a stupid vile agent.

he didn't want to think of losing her so soon and he was enjoying their game of cat and mouse

he cried heavily as he realized it wasn't a joke anymore.







Kylie told Ruslan not to worry they would find Laverna and fast. Tenchi traced the call to a mansion confirming her location. Tenchi told Ruslan it’s time to go save her. All they needed was a plan.



Back at the mansion



Charles was explaining why he killed their mother.



Apparently something about not teaching her children about the truth of their family and drug deals



He explained while spitting at her inches away from face. “Your a daughter of an ex mafia boss,”



Laverna looked away at the bunch of the torn up trash



It was just how she left it when she was ten.



“Its been longer than six years, it's 8.” She muttered softly under her breath as she was too shocked to even cry.



Only thing missing was their mother’s corpse



It obviously was buried in an unmarked makeshift grave.



He evilly chuckled

“Now to finish you off, so I have no more competition.”



“I'm no longer a threat,” laverna sighed before she was slapped across the face



She felt a tooth dislodge from impact and she spat it out.



“Beat me if you want, I don't remember anything,” She replied in a cocky way



If she was gonna die, she wasn't gonna make it easy.



“Your a threat as long as your alive, I know your a wanted criminal,” he argued before slapping her again



She just groaned as she tried to wiggle free..



The truth is she remembered everything and wasn't about to let him get away with having the last laugh



She needed to buy time, but how?





The fellowship descended on the mansion and began to execute their plan being helped by the Elvises. They started parading by the mansion while playing music and saying “Happy Mardi Gras!” As the thugs were caught up in the festivities, Tenchi, Kylie, and Ruslan snuck inside. They heard Charles monologue and knew the time to strike was now when the villain is distracted.



Laverna unfortunately couldn't fight a. Pill being forced down her mouth



She gagged and coughed as she was forced to swallow it



“Nighty night,” Charles smirked as he turned the lights off leaving her in the pitch dark



Her eyelids became heavy and she started hearing her mother’s voice



She eventually fell unconscious.

And in her sleep she saw her mother telling her she's safe now.



All she ever wanted was to go home, perhaps she would finally get that wish.



To be back with her mother safe and warm.

No longer living place to place and to be at peace,

Forgetting all about Carmen, ruslan or her friends as her subconscious betrayed her to fall deeper into the reapers grasp.





Ruslan searched the house and found Laverna unconscious. He hurried with her outside to a waiting ambulance. Tenchi and Kylie told him she would be okay. But she was comatose and they both knew she might not wake up from it. Of course Tenchi would use his best medical equipment to take care of her until she hopefully recovered. Charles and his men were arrested for kidnapping and would be going to jail for a very long time. He defiantly yelled that he would have his revenge as he was driven away.



Carmen was grief-stricken by the news of Laverna's state. She hoped Laverna would recover soon but couldn't hold off on her plans as she was a professional. Paige Turner definitely did not wish to broadcast this news to VILE proper. Once they heard what had happened they knew not to bother Carmen. Only her closest friends Merey and Dazzle went to see her from time to time. They even talked about things they would steal when Laverna was back with them. The auditorium was a lost cause through outside interference not ACME anyway so they could claim a draw sort of.



Carmen kept up appearances and called to check on Laverna status regularly. She was glad She was in good hands with Tenchi and Kylie. And as the weeks went by things began to return to normal at ACME and VILE

Chapter: 3 in her head





She was alive; however, she was not conscious. Several tubes and wires were attached to her, monitoring her unconscious state. It's been almost a month since she the incident and she could only twitch like she was having a nightmare. Her hospital room was decked out in Christmas decorations and get well cards that anyone could guess the legitimacy of the sender’s intentions. but laverna would have assumed they was just empty feelings. In fact she didn't believe anyone cared about her



Carmen was visiting as it was Christmas eve night and she believed in miracles. Carmen sighed wrapping her gloved hand around lavena’s bare ones. “You have something he didn't have, compassion. Where you only loved them; he used them for power, Your story is not yet over, ferret,” She explained while looking out the window at the snowfall.



She didnt expect the fingers to curl up around her but it gave her a sense of relief that she will pull through this. She softened her voice to comfort laverna “Its alright, carmen’s here,” Just rubbing her palm with no idea what else to do for her. It was obvious she couldn't leave her as something was happening.



“I promised you when we met, That I will always protect you from your family, I'm sorry I didn't protect you in time, “ she said trying to sooth laverna into perhaps speaking or opening her eyes “Love you, manita,” Carmen sighed as she looked at laverna. She seemed more relaxed at least





Laverna’s thick eyelashes fluttered but she didn't have the strength to open them. Ruslan barged in and shrugged as he noticed carmen. “I guess not such a merry Christmas,” he sighed sadly as he placed a stuffed teddy bear in the bed next to laverna.

Carmen chuckled “Christmas, Good news, Well she’s improving and won't let my hand go now,” Laverna’s grasp was tight and wasn't about to let Carmen go. “Shes afraid you will disappear,” he chuckled wiping away tears.





Tenchi and Kylie had kept constant watch over laverna while she was recovering. And the second the system indicated movement they went straight to Laverna’s room. They saw Carmen and Ruslan there already and wished them a merry Christmas. Tenchi told everyone that laverna waking up was more likely now that she exhibited more movement.



“We’ll be talking to her again soon I’m sure.” He said enthusiastically.



Laverna muttered and shook her head as she was having another trauma filled nightmare



These nightmares had been keeping her in this state.



She learned that it was all true about her family and the stress of it all knocked her down.



The poison pill didn't help her much either, she might be cocky but she's still a baby at heart.



Nobody would want to be dragged back to their worst memory against their will.



But the poor girl is remembering all the abuse and chaos her brother done to her since they was infants.



“No,” she muttered coherently still unconscious but aware enough to speak.



“Don’t your gonna kill mommy,” stop it, Charles!!” she shrieked



Tears pooled out from her closed eyes.



She was ten years old again; watching her brother betray mom and her all over again.



She could smell the blood and the gunpowder.



The machines monitoring Laverna indicated more brain activity as she drew closer to awakening. Everyone heard her reacting to the dream she was having and wished she would wake up from it. It was almost as if their combined prayers were willing her awake.



A Christmas Ball was scheduled to take place and guests started arriving at ACME Garden Ballroom in very stylish dresses and tuxedos. Ruslan was upset that the person he wanted to take was still sleeping. He wondered if a kiss would do the trick while everyone got ready to party



Carmen could tell what ruslan was thinking by the look on his face.



“This isn't a fairytale, true love kiss doesn't work on villains,” she muttered under her breath.







Hearing that Tenchi decided to try a new invention; "The Fairy-tailor Mk. 1" With this we can create a virtual reality fairytale world. We can dive into this world and help Laverna that way! Tenchi set up the device and everyone prepared to dive into the simulation. Laverna's mind would be fully aware inside and all they had to do was find her.



Once they entered fairyland they saw they were dressed as typical storybook characters. Okay maybe Dungeons and Dragons was more accurate but anyway they sallied forth with a optimistic spirit, and not just because the dungeonmaster said they did. They helped the weak and fought the evil across the land as they journeyed to Laverna's location. Carmen for one was annoyed however as she was under a spell that had her increase in weight whenever she took her red shoes off. She didn't mind the extra pounds at all, but found the suddenness to be most embarrassing. Plus there were seven dwarves that started following her around claiming they were really heroes cursed by a spell.



Carmen told them to make themselves useful by stopping their random song and dance and look for Laverna. They immediately referred to her as princess Laverna causing Carmen to eye roll in annoyance. She said, "Your more interested in rescuing princesses to make yourselves look good not because you care about them. Maybe your curse was to teach you humility." The dwarves said it was pointless as without them the land was in peril. They were the greatest heroes in the land and needed to be cured to keep saving it.



The party travelled to a crossroads where the dwarves said that down one path a magic spring existed that could cure any curse or affliction; and down the other a city bustling with activity. It was home to one of the dwarves and he began going on and on about how lost they must've been without him to rescue them. The group happily left the dwarves to go find the spring and went into the city. Ruslan was certain Laverna had to be there and not just because it was called Spice City. Ruslan searched the streets looking for Laverna and suddenly... he saw her.



Laverna was looking normal and beautiful as ever going about her business as usual. But then Ruslan saw a car speeding down the street. He raced to save Lavena from being hit by it imagining a kiss for a reward. But just as he was about to stop the car by using his magic wand to make the car stop; Laverna was saved by a strange man who flew down from the sky and picked her up with one hand while stopping the car with another.



Ruslan was mortified by this guy who began to sing instead of talk like a normal person...



"Stand back everyone nothing here to see! Just imminent danger in the middle of it me! Yes, Captain Hammer's here hair blowing in the breeze. And the day needs my saving expertise! A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do! Seems destiny ends with me saving you! The only doom that looming is you loving me to death! So I'll give you a second to catch your breath!"



Ruslan wasn't going to stand for this one bit. He saved Laverna using his wand not this Hammer-whoever. Laverna however was completely grateful for the sudden save and saw that he shared her interest in broadway singing as well. And with the singing bug overcoming her began to respond in song as well...



(Laverna in Shock) "Thank you Hammerman I don't think I can... Explain how important it was that you stopped the van. I would be splattered, I'd be crushed under debris. Thank you sir for saving me.



HAMMER

Don’t worry about it…



A man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do!

Seems destiny ends with me saving you!

When you’re the best, you can’t rest, what’s the use? There’s ass needs kicking, some ticking bomb to defuse! The only doom that’s looming is you loving me to death



LAVERNA (overlapping)

You came from above.

I wonder what you’re Captain of?

My heart is beating like a drum!

Must be, must be in shock

Assuming I’m not loving you to death!



HAMMER/PENNY

So please give me a sec to catch my breath!



RUSLAN (overlapping)

Are you kidding?

What heist were you watching?

Stop looking at her like that!

Did you notice that he threw you in the garbage?

I stopped the van, the magic wand was in my hand!

Whatever!

Balls!



Tenchi noticed that Laverna's psyche had an influence on the world her likes were being expressed in noticeable ways. He told everyone that they would have to use that knowledge to help wake her up in the real world...





Laverna smirked as she vanished into a poof a smoke.

A note blew in the breeze.



Meanwhile in a dark castle

She cackles as she mixes up an evil potion

To poison hammerman and steal his soul.



Behind her was a woman who looked eeriely similar making sure she did it correctly



“Mom, stop it I'm no child, “ Laverna whined



“Its been long since I seen you, You grown up so,” The woman answered while patting laverna on the head





Meanwhile with the heroes



“You know if we are in laverna’s mind. .shes gonna make it chaotic and dark. I raised this kid and frankly she isn't gonna be happy with intruders.” Carmen explained as she noticed laverna’s wanted posters on the walls



It was decided by the group that somehow Ruslan became the evil Wizard in the eyes of the public. They felt the citizens of Spice City made that decision because Hammerman was their hero. Sure he was an egotistical self absorbed egomaniac, but the city folk didn’t seem to mind or notice. So Ruslan’s attempts at explaining he saved Laverna fell on deaf ears. The people decided he was jealous of Hammerman and wanted to take over the city.



The group knew they needed to get to Laverna and saw she had a lovely dark castle on a hill and headed over to it



The scenery started to change from fairytale to film noir.

Laverna wore a black suit and tie. “I told you I wanted her to not worry.” She shouted at several men who ran away in frignt.



It wasn't long till an identical twin brother popped in and muttered about lost of profits.



Laverna looked out the window and saw the heroes switching over to this story world.



“Well, damn. We have intruders, dear family,” she smirked wickedly

The group saw peasant folk change to industrial era citizens as they walked toward the castle. Tenchi said to everyone, "Come let's mix where Rockefellers walk with sticks or umbrellas in their mitts!" Things had gotten even better for the group as ACME couldn't shut up about this particular era in history. They used their knowledge of all things swingin' to navigate to the door of the castle. The guard asked for the password and Tenchi said, "Puttin' on the Ritz." The door slowly opened as they headed inside...







Ruslan was sad that the fairytale vibe was over.

carmen nudged him "hope she didn't replace clyde already," she teased him.



"what?" ruslan asked confused



"1920s, hopefully it's a bonnie and clyde swing and not al chaplone" Carmen explained worriedly







Inside Castle Tower lobby they saw a huge statue of Laverna. Ruslan yelled, "No!" as he saw it was her plaque that read "Greatest Mob Boss Ever!" Tenchi saw that Laverna had switched roles with Charles to have a happy family. But this was only a dream and Laverna had to be woken up from it. They headed up the elevator to see Laverna in her office...



Laverma Heard the scream and ordered the boys to make the guests comfortable.



She was in her element, . Outside her office was a native American girl named shada with a knife in her right hand.



Shada enjoyed wickedness as much as laverna did



When the heroes emerged from the elevator they was surprised to see shada







The group had a pow wow with shada and talked about keeping peace pipes in proper order. Shada however was only concerned about Captain Hammer showing up. However she was assured he would not cause too much trouble… hopefully. They all headed inside the office to see Laverna.



Laverna as happy to see her friends in order to tell them of her mob life. But all her friends were interested in was figuring out how to wake her up.









Laverna was pretending everything was fine.

If the scrambled status of the office didn't indicate anything.



“Im happy here, I'm finally home,” she sighed looking over her shoulder in a worried mannerism



“This was never your home, It's not even real.” Carmen argued trying to talk sense into her.



Laverna snarled

“Not like vile was a home either,”





The ceiling leaked blood onto the heroes



“Gross,” ruslan muttered as he wiped it off

Now, look what you done!” laverna angerily remarKed while pulling a pistol out of her pocket



“I don't think she wants to talk,” Ruslan interjected as he fled upon seeing the gun



Carmen snatched the gun and forced laverna into a hug. “Calm down.” she commanded





Carmen’s reaction confused ruslan deeply



Tenchi hugged Laverna as well as Kylie took out an empty vial and collected samples saying, “Nothing like dream blood from the ceiling. My boss is going to be so jealous.” After gathering for her collection, Kylie saw Carmen and Tenchi looking at her. Kylie sighed and said, “Fine you weirdos I’ll do the… hug… thing… okay?” Kylie walked over and joined in the hugging with a certain potato boy unsure of what he should do.







Laverna felt suffocated And fought off the hug.

“Get off me,” she pouted her cheeks turning bright red



“Cute,” Carmen chuckled at the angry girl



“Im not cute, I'm evil.” laverna argued



Carmen shook her head “yeah, sure.” she muttered



Tenchi said, “Ferret I have inventions for you to test and you can’t do that here in dream world… well actually you are testing my Fairy-tailor Mk.1 but that’s besides the point-“ Kylie covered Tenchi’s mouth and said, “What we mean is you are our friend and we want you to go back with us.”



“Friends, family first ya know,” laverna smirked evilly



Carmen sighed. “Mafia, rules. We are gonna need another strategy.”



Laverna pulled a chair our and sat in it backwarfs



“Neogations begin.” she cackled



Ruslan had never seen laverna act like that before and he was slightly attracted to it and scared of her



Although Carmen seemed used to laverna being like this. Although it surprised tenchi and Kylie as laverna’s vibe changed to a serious mafia boss



“Miss heist, You know working here isn't gonna cause chaos in a grand scale, Wouldn’t you like to come back as vile’s mischief master,” Carmen asked in a serious tone tapping her leg.



She wore a vintage hat and a red wiggle dress and matching heels. Her black gloves was now lacy.



“Hmm, . I do love entrophy,” Laverna added



“You could help me plan my next heist, “ Carmen added trying to get laverna to accept her offer







Before Tenchi and Kylie could add anything, Captain Hammer flew through the balcony. He was slightly upset that the door was open and he couldn’t crash through it. He started to sing,



“Stand back everyone nothing here to see! Just imminent danger in the middle of it me! Yes, Captain Hammer's here- Oh it’s you people again. Well I’m not singing twice for free boys and girls haha! Now stand aside so I can save… something. And no autographs please.



Seeing the bad timing collective sighs and headaches were shared among the group. Captain Hammer was walking in dramatic fashion looking at himself in reflective surfaces. He was flexing his muscles occasionally as he went and smiling at himself. He told everyone he and his friends were cured of the dwarf curse and ever since were letting Spice City know they were back in heroic fashion.



Tenchi and Kylie said, “The playroom misses you Lava, and so does Chase. Besides you’ll get to escape Captain Hammer’s ego.”

Captain hammer passed out making laverna cackle

However Carmen was growing annoyed at the situation.



“Only thing needing saving is himself,” laverna teased making ruslan snort



“Your gonna wake up, Even if you believe this is reality, sis,” Carmen scolded in a way that made laverna react like a dog that misobeyed its owner



“Yes, boss,” laverna whimpered and She dropped a poison dart gun



Everyone was happy; mostly because Captain Hammer passed out, but also because Laverna was coming around too. Everyone prepared to go back to the real world and head and off to the Christmas party. They couldn’t wait to exchange gifts and dance the night away.



She woke up without much of a fuss

Annoyed at the fact she hadn't been working for a month.



“Seriously, what actually happened to me?” she asked



Carmen sighed

“A lot of chaos,” she winked at her little sister not wanting her to stress out







The stress was left up to Tenchi who made sure to catch laverna up on all the inventions that needed testing. Whether web gun launchers or super bouncy gum, laverna was kept quite busy. Though she made sure to accidentally point them in Chase’s direction whenever possible. Otherwise things had returned to normal as even the weather was snowing as expected.



chapter 4: the awakening



Carmen was packing up and about to leave.



Laverna watched her like a hawk.



“Where you off to?” Laverna asked in a puzzled way



“I need to go get something. I will be back,” carmen explained before opening the wooden door.



“Hmm,” Laverna muttered, while she sadly watched carmen leave with a familiar briefcase.

the briefcase actually belonged to Laverna and carried mostly medical papers and her prescribed medication.



Laverna wondered why carmen would take that out of all things; she became stuck in this thought process until she was distracted by a squeaky voice



“it’s Christmas; want to go to the ball?” Ruslan asked, trying to look cool.



Laverna sighed. She had only been awake for a few hours, and she was being asked to a ball.



“I rather not, honestly, I doubt I can even walk right now,’ Laverna sarcastically joked





The guests were arriving for the ball and some even chose to show up in horse drawn carriages. While pomp was on full display, everyone had heard of Laverna’s condition and were hoping she was doing better like Chase who said, “We want to arrest her; not attend her funeral.” The ballroom was large and grandiose to say the least and all that was missing was the sound of music and happy guests.



Laverna was annoyed at the fact she was Attending a ball. Her hair was in a braided bun with two golden antlers sticking out.



Her makeup was quite rosy; and she wore a Red sweater over a sleeveless golden knee length dress.



Her feet wore black ballet flats with sheer and gold tinted socks.



“I feel ridiculous,” she uttered as she looked at herself in the mirror before entering the ballroom



Carmen wore a simple black dress with black heels.

Her hair hung down with a ruby hair clip



Ruslan wore a black tux with gold accents. He quickly followed laverna to make sure she didn't escape.



Carmen laughed at him rushing after laverna







A strange man decided to crash the party however. His name was Voltaire, and he and Tenchi were not on good terms. Mostly because of Kylie as Voltaire decided he was totally her type. In actuality he was a poser who tried way too hard to get attention. But that didn't stop him from showing off one bit. He decided one song was all it would take to sweep Kylie off her feet. As he got on stage thoughts of him running away with Kylie laughing maniacally as Tenchi cried like a baby filled his head. And then he started to sing.Tatiana used her diplomacy skills to ex



It gets so lonely being evil.

This is the life you see.

The devil tips his hat to me!

But no one loves you when you're evil!

... I'm lyin' through my teeth!

Your fear and pain is all I'll ever need!



I pledge my allegiance to all things dark and Vile!

And I promise on my damned soul, to do as I am told!

For Beelzebub has never seen!

A soldier quite like me!

Not only does his job, but does it happily!



I'm the fly in Tenchi's tea!

The sharp dagger thrown at thee!

I'm the fear in his head!

Hoping Kylie won't be wed!

But she will choose me!

And we'll both be free!

To live our lives so merrily!



And there's nothing you can do!

except shout out you are through!

And Voltaire I always knew!

That there's nothing I can do!



That you were a better man!

You can do more than I can!

I am finished what can I say?

I'll back down now and make way!



To be fair Voltaire's off the cuff rhyming wasn't too bad but as usual Tenchi was concerned with more pressing matters. Such as why Laverna had antlers on. As he feared Zack on seeing them tried to hang coats and other clothing on them as well as other guests who figured she was a mobile clothes hanger from wardrobe. The aloofness of upper-class people was sad at times. Without thinking they assumed things too quickly and clamored to hang something before the limited pace was full. Seeing an opportunity, business savvy guests even began offering hangar space for a price. But after Tatiana used her diplomacy skills to diffuse the situation; everything calmed down.



Tenchi cleared away the guests bidding for a hanger spot and settled them near the punch bowl. Kylie was impressed with Tenchi's consideration for Laverna's fashion choices and legal experience

that led him to fining guests guilty of hanger racketeering. Tenchi quickly noticed a bad mask and pulled it off a guest. It revealed Lars Vegas who was not too happy with the racketeering charges being issued. Tenchi said, "You never learn do you Lars?" Lars yelled back, "You know I'll do anything for a dollar!" Lars proceeded to quickly escape through a window while the guests began applauding Tenchi for his sterling efforts.



While Tenchi was bowing to the crowd, Voltaire yelled, "Hey! I just sang a song announcing my antagonistic intentions for this scene! At least pretend to be interested in my evil goals!" But it was to no avail. ACME's star detectives were once again being lauded upon and once the toasting ended everyone would be returning to dancing as normal.



Laverna Had vanished



In fact she was on the roof Planning how to escape



“I hate crowds,” she muttered as she watched a squirrel in a. Tree



Carmen laughed



“That was quick,” she laughed as she sat down on the snowy roof watching the stars



It was obvious laverna hated feeling smothered by crowd. She hates rules and being tied down to manners.



She threw her antlers off the roof as she jumped into a tree.



Carmen watched her not sure what she was up to.



Tenchi and Kylie made sure to keep the guests entertained and Voltaire in check. They noticed Laverna was gone and knowing she hated crowds were not at all surprised. They hoped she wouldn’t get in trouble as Ruslan searched around in vain for her.



Laverna rather be in the woods during yuletime.

That's where she escaped to as her shoes left footprints in the snow.



“I been in a coma for a month.” she sighed holding back tears.



Instead of giving time to acknowledge what happened. Ruslan and dragged her to a formal event. She marched around causing small animals to scatter.



An owl watched her as she wandered



Carmen followed close behind after all laverna wasn't dressed for the cold.



“We are gonna catch hypnothermia, unless we head back,” Carmen remarked slightly shivering trying to catch up with her little sister.



“Im not cold,” laverna lied as she shook snow off her head.



The others headed of after Laverna after they got a tip from ACME Bear-net. The bears were the same ones that had their wedding near neutral grounds awhile back. All they had to do now was find Laverna. As they drove into the woods they made sure to turn on the heater and keep their hot cocoa close by.



Laverna sighed as she saw her breath in the frosty air.

Carmen was more used to the cold but still shivered.

“Cold.” laverna whined causing Carmen to laugh



“No kidding,” Carmen teased grabbing laverna’s arm and dragging her into a hug.



carefully, carmen manipulated laverna in the way back. after all, freezing to death after nearly dying of poison was not ideal



Hugs given everyone left for warmer rooms and more hot cocoa. But elsewhere in the woods a certain director sprung his ambush yelling, “Freeze Carmen!”. While the words were ironic given the cold weather, Voltaire was more interested in staying relevant. The Director saw that Carmen wasn’t there but there was a note. It read, “I.O.U one arrest. Better luck next crime detective. Yours truly, Carmen Sandiego.” The director yelled, “Noo! Again she eludes my grasp!”



Voltaire felt it was time for another song to get all eyes on him. He sang,



You really got a thing for this Carmen gal!

Now why don’t you help me out like a real pal!

You may this sounds a bit strange

but I really would like it if I could eat her brain!

Now Mr. Director stop looking strangely at me!

I’ll convince you quite easily

You may say she’ll think it’s strange;

But she won’t think twice if she don’t have a brain!



The Director had decided to arrest Carmen not eat her, so Voltaire was turned down. Plus cannibalism was illegal after all. Voltaire could care less though he saw the Director was fooled by Carmen’s decoy and needed to find where Tenchi had gone.



An hour later



Laverna found herself in carmen’s coat

It smelt like dark coffee and mystery



However, the fact she was back at vile in her dorm

Tucked in bed cuddling a stuffed animal.



“Did Carmen steal me?” she asked while noticing Carmen smiling at laverna



“Prehaps, I did.” she replied



The END





Epilogue scene…



The detectives were back at VILE and all was well until that is Ruslan was ambushed. It was Voltaire who refusing to go away cornered Ruslan and sang.



Hello there guy if you don’t mind

I heard Laverna is really fine!

So tell me where she dwells in the rain

So that I… can eat her brain!



Come on spud what’s with you heck!?

Is she someone that you want to protect!?

Just tell me what I wanna know

And I even might decide to let you go!



Ruslan unimpressed said, “Are you for real? What is wrong with you? You said “dwells in the rain” just so you could say brain in a rhyme. That’s pretty sad.” Voltaire angered he was being insulted by a potato said, “Silence French fry! Tenchi is no match for me! What makes you think you are!?”



Ruslan informed Voltaire Tenchi was too busy to deal with him and he should be lucky he’s not. Voltaire was told he had really bad timing and to learn to understand when he’s annoying people. Voltaire shook his fist and said, “You win this round Ruslan, but next time you’ll be mashed!” Voltaire took the customary escape route through the window and bumped int Walter Wiley as he made his escape.



Walter saw that the mood had been stolen by Voltaire and decided to come back… another time.



THE END
