About
Kevin Johnson is planning to take over the internet one small blog at a time. A Dartmouth grade with a penchant for having fun, drinking, and all things entertaining, Kevin will do his finest to add thoughtful, insightful looks at gaming and video games in general-- but do not worry, he can be just as snarky as the rest of the internet, 4chan excluded.

This person mainly has a "professional" blog at www.totalmediabridge.com; by "professional," he means it doesn't make money and it's really just a general showcase of his writing skill and blogging ability. In due time, however, he will improve it immensely in the months to go, along with a nice, super-secret project in the works. Stay Tuned!

Unfortunately, he isn't into the new gen-systems, because he can't afford them at the moment, due to the bad economy and student loans. But he still games when he can, mostly the unplayed favorites of the previous generation, and at the very least tries to stay current on what's going on, news wise.

So keep your eyes peeled for some particularly interesting stuff in the next year or so!

----------------------------------------------------

I'm currently in the process of writing a Ratchet & Clank screenplay exclusively for Destructoid! It takes place between R&C4: Deadlocked (the last PS2 game) and R&C: Tools of Destruction (the first PS3 game). I know fan fics tend to get pushed aside as lame, but so far the criticism has been positive, so hopefully if you do decide to read this, you won't sigh in annoyance.

So enjoy!

Part 8 is here.

EXT. THUG-4-LESS AERIAL PRISON – DAY

Outside, the Prison Guards turn towards the doors, confusedly.

OUTSIDE PRISON GUARD 1
What's going on?

OUTSIDE PRISON GUARD 2
Let's check it out!

CAPTAIN QWARK
Sorry, boys…

Qwark grabs their heads and slam them against each other, knocking them out cold.

CAPTAIN QWARK
Your license just been revoked!

He thinks on that a second.

CAPTAIN QWARK
I really need to work on my marketable catchphrases.

ARMED ROBOT (O.S.)
Freeze!

Qwark turns around and sees about twenty ARMED ROBOTS, all aiming on his head.

CAPTAIN QWARK (nervously)
Uh, if you want autographs, guys, you're gonna have to stand in line.

The robots charge up their blasters. Qwark gulps.

From behind Qwark, Angela's ship rises up into the sky over him. The robots gaze upward, right before Angela opens fire, destroying them with a few massive laser shots.

Qwark looks up and grins, waving.

CAPTAIN QWARK
Thanks, Alexis!

ANGELA (into intercom, through Qwark's earpiece)
That's Angela!

A sudden blast knocks into the ship from the side. Goons and robots have set themselves up along the side of the buildings, sporting larger, more damaging artillery.

Angela swings the ship downward to get herself out of range.

ANGELA (into intercom, to all)
We're under attack out here! Everyone to the rendezvous point!

The ship flies underneath the vessel. Captain Qwark sprints away.

INT. THUG-4-LESS AERIAL PRISON – DAY

Ratchet and Clank moves speedily through the shafts. Laser blasts through the metal as the RANDOM GOONS shoot at the vents from the outside, blindly.

RANDOM GOON 1
Where is he?

RANDOM GOON 2
Just follow the noise, stupid!

They chase the banging within the vents.

Meanwhile, Sasha walks into the main flight deck, where two PILOT RANGERS and two PILOT GOONS are stationed.

SASHA
Soldiers! We need support down in Section B, stat!

RANGER PILOT 1
Ma'am, yes, ma'am!

The two rangers run out. The goons remain in their spot.

PILOT GOON 1
Hey! We don't take orders from you!

SASHA
Uh… the goon that nabs the intruder gets… uh… muffins?

PILOT GOON 2
Hot dog! Muffins! He's mine!

They both happily skip out the room, branding weapons.

Sasha rushes over to the controls panel. She rips it open and fiddles with a few wires, short-circuiting something.

SASHA (to earpiece)
Controls are jammed. No need to worry about the ship following us.

RATCHET (O.S.)
That's… whoa!... great… yikes!

Sasha presses more buttons, but she keeps getting errors. She keeps trying but nothing's happening.

SASHA
I can't get the lower bay doors to open! The override codes must have shut down after the alarm was hit!

ANGELA (O.S.)
Oh, great job with that cunning plan!

SASHA
Hey, if it wasn't for me you wouldn't even have gotten inside this place!

Ratchet reaches a safer spot inside the vents within the walls. He yells.

RATCHET
Now is not the time for this!

CLANK
Ratchet, look!

Clank points to a series of small electric panels along the interiors of the walls.

CLANK
If my architectural calculations are correct, the ships mainframe should be interconnected. If I follow those series of tubes—

CAPTAIN QWARK (O.S.)
You can connect to the internet!

CLANK
No! I can hack in and open the bay doors manually!

RATCHET
Get to it, Clank. We'll meet you there!

Clank hops off Ratchet's back and removes the paneling, slipping into the wiring. The Lombax continues his way into the vents.

INT. THUG-4-LESS INTERNAL MECHANISMS - DAY

Clank clambers his way across electric wires, between gears, over circuitry, and even dodges some bright-red lasers sliding back and forth in a predictable pattern.

CLANK
I doubt any of this is practical. Or energy efficient.

He manages to hop down into a sort-of main central area, a circular room with a control panel connected to a massive, bright electrical ball of energy. He approaches the keyboard.

Suddenly, through the surrounding wiring, out pops four Clank-sized ROBOT NINJA-PIRATES. They pose in martial-art type stances and sport headbands, eye-patches, peg-legs, and black belts.

CLANK
Robot ninja-pirates. It's always robot ninja-pirates.

The one speaks in rushed English, like a dubbed translation, although his mouth doesn't sync with his voice in any way.

ROBOT NINJA-PIRATE
Arrgh! You won't be getting through us, matey. Ha ha!

They all surround Clank. Clank furrows his brow.

They jump at him, but Clank smoothly dodges their attacks. He parry blows and punches, returning a flurry of kicks and punches, exposing some amazing martial-art skills of his own!

He flips over one, tossing him into another robot; jump kicks another; aerial-split-kicks two returning robots; and back-punches the remaining one. The robot ninja-pirates are done for.

Clank brushes his hands clean, then walks over to the console. He types in a series of keys and a flash of zeroes and ones pop on the screen.

CLANK (to earpiece)
The doors should be opening in one minute.

RATCHET
Great job, Clank! Meet us down there!

Clank blinks a second, looking closer at the code. He looks confused.

CLANK
… mom?

The screen shuts off suddenly. Clank shakes out of his distraction, and runs off into another path of wiring, not before looking back at the blank screen with concern.

I/E THUG-4-LESS SHIP BAY – DAY

The huge expanse of the ship's bay is filled with stacks upon stacks of crates. There are a number of ships too, and a massive computer screen planted into the wall. The massive bay doors are located on the ground itself.

Sasha runs in first, right at the exact moment Ratchet pops out the vent. He's covered in soot.

RATCHET
Ugh, they really need to clean those things.

SASHA
Ratchet!

She runs over to hug him and kisses him on his nose. They catch eyes for a moment, then back off each other.

SASHA
It's, uh, good to see you're okay.

RATCHET
Heh-heh, likewise.

Clank stumbles out through another computer panel on the wall. He looks distracted.

RATCHET
Clank! You okay, little buddy?

CLANK (unsure of himself)
I… yes, yes I am. Look!

The bay doors begin to slowly open up, the whoosh of the blowing wind rushing inside as the foggy mountain tops expose themselves to the three.

SASHA
Oh, great! Guess who's late!

Doors from the other side of the room explode open. A panicked Captain Qwark sprints directly towards the bay doors, with a ton of robots, goons, and rangers on his tail, all firing endlessly.

CAPTAIN QWARK
Out of my way! I'm going first!

SASHA, RATCHET, AND CLANK (variously spoken)
No! Wait, Qwark! Stop! The ship's not here! Hold on!

CAPTAIN QWARK
Geronimo!

He leaps blindly into the wide open bay doors. There's a silence. Even those chasing Qwark have to stop shooting.

RATCHET
That's… probably the stupidest thing I have seen. Ever.

From the thick fog underneath rises Angela's plane! The hatch is open, and Qwark is safely inside it, just upside down, head inside the seat.

ANGELA (yelling)
I was here the whole time! Now watch out!

Sasha, Ratchet, and Clank duck as Angela unloads a flurry of laser blasts into the ship, firing at not only the goons, rangers, and robots, causing them to scatter helplessly, but also blasting at all the ships inside, blowing them up one-by-one.

ANGELA
Jump!

Clank jumps first, landing spot on into the cockpit of Angela's ship.

RATCHET
Sasha, you coming?

Sasha hesitates a second. Suddenly, the big screen flashes on, displaying the Galactic President himself.

GALACTIC PRESIDENT
Huh? What? Hey! Someone give me a status report on that pris—

He gawks, seeing Sasha standing next to Ratchet.

GALACTIC PRESIDENT
Sasha… say it isn't so…

SASHA
Dad! You got to stop this! Please!

GALACTIC PRESIDENT
I… I'm sorry, honey. Please don't do this. Ratchet, whatever problem you have with me, we can deal with. Just please don't bring my daughter into this!

Ratchet drops his Omniwrench at his feet, and holds his hands up.

RATCHET (innocently, but with resentment)
I have no control over her, sir. Whatever choice she makes is purely up to her.

The Galactic President looks pleadingly at Sasha.

GALACTIC PRESIDENT
Please, Sasha…

Sasha looks down, frowning. She closes her eyes, light tears forming along her eyelids.

SASHA
I'm sorry, father…

Sasha turns and jumps out onto the ship.

GALACTIC PRESIDENT
No!! Ratchet! Don't do this! Don't let her do this!

Ratchet picks up his Omniwrench and shrugs.

RATCHET
I don't get between family quarrels.

Ratchet turns and jumps into the ship. All five are present and accounted for.

Angela turns the ships and rockets away, leaving the shocked Galactic President to watch helplessly.

INT. ANGELA'S SHIP – DAY

It's a tight fit, but Sasha, Angela, Captain Qwark, Ratchet, and Clank are all seated as the ship flies through the sky.

CAPTAIN QWARK
Haha! Once again, my bravery, in conjunction with my rock-hard abs and massive, rocket guns, allowed us to escape unscathed from the clutches of the Thug-4-Life prison! I smell book deal!

ANGELA
Shut up, Qwark. (to herself) Risking my life for this… (out loud) So did we find out anything about Gears?

Sasha looks out the window, somewhat forlornly. Ratchet watches her. Angela, steering the ship, doesn't notice it.

SASHA
… nothing.

CLANK
Not true! Soulja Bot told Ratchet something in his ear.

Everyone turns to Ratchet.

ANGELA
Well?

SASHA
What did he say?

CAPTAIN QWARK
The suspense is killing me!

RATCHET
Oh! Um… okay… he said she was taken to the Megacorp MegaRumble in the Bogon Galaxy. On Endako.

SASHA
What? That doesn't sound good. MegaRumble is a Megacorp-slash-Gadgetron gladiator deathcourse event. It's all a publicity stunt, but my father and the Galactic Federation were supposed to regulate it.

ANGELA (still piloting the ship)
Sounds like your daddy's doesn't know what the heck's going on!

Sasha is hurt more by that statement but Angela doesn't notice.

SASHA
I suppose he doesn't.

ANGELA
Anyway, the Bogon Galaxy is far. Very far. No way this ship can make it there. Not with all of us.

RATCHET
I… I may know a guy that can help us.

The ship shoots out of the atmosphere of Aronos into space.
