PBB Interlude Part I
PBB Interlude Part II
You know what’s an awesome word? Unbeknownst! In fact it is so awesome expect it in this episode a lot!
: Alright we got the supply, and the method of delivery, and the fact that we have to talk vaguely about the plan so it is unbeknownst to the readers. What’s next?
: What’s next is that we lay low for a while. That detective is STILL on our trail. Besides we have everything we need, now we just need to find a suitable location.
: Speaking of which, we haven’t heard from him in a while. I wonder what he’s been up to.
*Crobat bursts in*
: DUSCLOPS, FATASS, COME QUICK!
: What is it?
: Th-th-the TV. Unbeknownst to you two, something important has been airing!
: Wait a second, if we have an impenetrable forcefield preventing people from entering and leaving, how is it we have a TV signal!?
*Dusclops, Crobat, and Magmortar then go to the atrium where the rest of the SKA is gathered. They are all looking at the TV screen to see RK in front of a press conference*
: The neighborhood home invasion was a horrible, tragic, incident.
*whispers to Dusclops*: You know it’s a pretty funny coincidence how the exact moment we watch TV is when the main topic was announced
: However, the reason why I am here is this case connects to an investigation I’ve been conducting with my force, even though it makes absolutely no sense since detectives don’t rule police forces. Anyway, unbeknownst to the public, I have been conducting a private investigation of a group of serial killers that have been terrorizing the city ever since a group of Snorlax’s were killed.
: Okay, so how does this connect to the murdered family?
: Well, I noticed the husband and father of the victims was not present in the house, and instead was killed at his job at a gasoline research facility along with the rest of his co-workers.
: Wait, how come that attack isn't being highlighted like this family is?
: Because they are nerds, and does anyone really care about nerds? I mean seriously, how did this guy even have a family?
: So are you suggesting that the attack on the family, and the attack on the nerds were done by the same group?
: Indeed I am. While studying the scene of the crime of the nerds, I had noticed there were a lot of similar properties to the attack on the Snorlax’s.
: So what do you intend to do about this detective?
: Well, these guys have given me enough proof to go after them now.
*turns off TV*: ...
: Crobat, please do not speak. Let me talk. *Goes on stage*. DO YOU ALL REALIZE WHAT YOU HAVE DONE!? Unbeknownst to most of you, I had planned everything so we could not cause a situation like this, especially with that detective on our case! If we wish to kill, we have to do it carefully now thanks to how big our organization has gotten! Not something simple and reckless like this. You all have made us fugitives!
: But it wasn’t all of us. It...was Golem!
*Everyone stares at Golem*
3.09: An SKA Bottle Episode!
You may be wondering “what the hell is a bottle episode!?”. Well let this lovely site known as tv tropes explain it to you!
Tv tropes: Bottle episodes are known as a challenge and/or a chore, depending on the writer. Since most/all of the episode is set in a single location (sometimes even entirely in one room) with a smaller than usual cast, the dialogue (regarded as one of the harder things to write) needs to be better and tighter than in other episodes since the writer can't really do anything else with the cast. Sometimes, writers create single-location episodes just as an exercise to see if they can, like in the case of one of the first bottle episodes, Seinfeld's "The Chinese Restaurant", which actually ended up costing as much as a regular episode due to the expense of the new set. In any case, this generally results in either one of the most boring episodes of a series, or one of the best.
: Oh okay, fair enough. *Looks at Golem*. Please try to listen to your division leader more often, we know what you’re doing
: Got it Dusclops!
: Wait what!? You were just pissed about it a few seconds ago and now you don’t even care!?
: I was under the impression one of the divisions were behind it and that I overestimated all of your competence. Because it is only one, it is far easy to control.
;169: Oh come on, that is such BS! He made us all fugitives and we aren't gonna do anything about it!? I was planning how to kill him, but I was ready to settle for just kicking him out. But all you’re gonna do is give him a warning?
: HEY! This is my guy we’re talking about, don’t be rude to him
: I’m sorry fatso, but was it unbeknownst to you that he just made us FUGITIVES!? There has to be some sort of retribution
: Crobat, cool your jets
: YOU STAY OUT OF THIS! THE LEADERS ARE TALKING
: Oh I see, you guys are automatically better than us.
: Oh come on, we’re back to this? YES, WE ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOU, DEAL WITH IT!
: What makes you guys so important anyway?
: GEE I DUNNO!? MAYBE IT’S BECAUSE THE ONE THAT BROUGHT US ALL TOGETHER DECIDED THAT?
;463: And that’s my point! Why should one person decide what we do-
: ...And who we do. Not like I’m complaining.
: -And who we listen to? It’s not fair! Unbeknownst to you and Fatmortar, all of us are completely discontent with the situation! If we are using our own free will to listen, isn’t what we feel important?
: Actually I’m fine with listening to them
: Yeah I’m good too
: They’re the ones in charge, we follow. It’s pretty simple, and we should be expected to not give them issues.
: A true ninja always obeys
: Yeah, it’s no big deal
: Maro wak wak! Maro wak!
: Wait a second...THEY’RE IN CHARGE?
The entire SKA besides Dusclops and Marowak: SHUT UP RHYDON!
: Okay... . I won’t talk anymore.
: Ugh you guys do not support me at all. Am I alone?
: YES NOW STOP YOUR COMPLAINING, WE HAVE MORE IMPORTANT THINGS TO DO DEAL WITH. Dusclops, don’t you see? Even if you don’t wish to punish him, unbeknownst to you he’s not sorry and he will do something like this again!
: Golem, will you promise not to do it again?
: Of course.
: *Fly’s towards Golem, takes out a knife and shoves it at his throat*.
: CROBAT! *Points arm cannon at Crobat*
: Let it be Magmortar
: Now tell the truth you degenerate piece of rock
: You wanna know the truth? Get that knife off my face
: Hmph *takes away knife*
: Honestly, I don’t know what’s becoming of us. I joined to be in a simple gang where we could terrorize and kill random people, not some super secret spy organization. I want to have fun killing, I don’t want to be serious. Who cares if we’re fugitives, we can still go around killing and just teleport with our buttons. I mean we don’t need to go around invading factories and mapping out our every move and planning every strategy. When did the SKA become more serious, and less fun?
: Golem does have a point
: He’s right. You are overreacting Crobat, that’s why I’m not so upset about this. It doesn’t matter if we are fugitives, we can just easily escape with our buttons. We’re unstoppable and can do what we want
: Exactly, so can we PLEASE stop with this spy charade?
: I’m afraid not
: I’ve been trying to be nice and respectful to you ALL day, and you won’t even tell me everything!?
: You lied to me. I asked you if you had any problems, and you said no. You have to understand, being a leader involves understanding and accepting the followers thoughts and integrating what they want into what you want. Unbeknownst to all of you, I am not a dictator that makes all the decisions. While I do make all the decisions, I integrate what everyone wants into what I want. Lickilicky, that’s why you should follow. Because we will try our best to do what you all want.
: Alright understood Dusclops!
: As for you Golem, you have to understand. What the SKA has been working on is for its own good. We tried to do what you suggested, kill for fun and nothing else. But that’s why we stopped in the first place. We are too good and too big for such simple tasks, we need a change.
: But what’s good in a change if it’s no fun?
: Golem, please stop this. We know what we are doing, and please trust us
: Oh my god, why do you want him to quiet down so badly? It was him keeping his anger to himself that put us in this jam!
: But didn’t you hear Dusclops? We aren’t in a jam!
: The point is we have to be open and honest. We can’t just suppress the arguments!
: We have to! There’s too many problems, too many things to deal with. We can’t deal with Every. Single. Little. Complaint! They just have to trust us, and when they disobey we deal with them. That’s why I’m upset about the lack of punishment for Golem.
: I See your point Crobat, but it’s important for our followers to want the cause, not following like their some sort of robot army. They need to have fun with it.
: Fun is a silly stupid emotion, we need to be serious or else we can’t focus.
: A true ninja focuses on the task at hand, not on silly emotions that are there and gone.
: Don’t you understand? What’s the point in carrying out tasks with literally no reward then?
: Yeah we have everything we ever wanted, we don’t need money. This group is made to kill, and what’s the point in it if there’s nothing to gain? We’re supposed to enjoy what we do.
: Maro wak wak wak wak wak wak wak wak wak wak
: Alright fine, I see your points. The end result will be fun, and I’ll admit the stuff we do is kinda cool too. I just wanna know what I’m following, I’m not comfortable with blind faith. What’s the harm in knowing?
: Golem, they wanna keep it private in case one of us get caught so we can’t spill, can’t you see that?
: But...didn’t we just establish we can’t get caught?
: You’re right, we can’t. But it’s just easier to manage with less people knowing, yknow? I’m sure the end result will be worth it
: But I don’t care if it’s worth it! I want to enjoy what I’m doing now, in the present. Screw the future if the present isn’t fine.
: And there’s your problem. You don’t care for thinking ahead, planning. All you care is what you do in the moment with no repercussions
: Yeah but I don’t LIKE being stressed. I want to have fun, I don’t wanna have to worry
: Great, we’re going in circles now. This whole thing is stupid
: No it’s not! Unbeknownst to you, it’s good to let tension out. We can’t just let it build up until it eats us inside.
: Letting go of tension just causes MORE tension.
: And building up causes random outbursts like Golem’s
: And how much consequences did Golem’s outburst have exactly? Oh that’s right none.
: Actually it led to this whole giant bickering spat
: THIS BICKERING SPAT IS LETTING OUT TENSION! I thought you said it was necessary!
: It is, but before it builds up. This is too much and it’s too chaotic and hard to control.
: There are guys. Simple minded guys. Who never complain, never bark a word, just feel. They listen to their wives obediently and nurture their children perfectly. They never release their anger, they just keep on building up and it’s fine. You learn to live with it, that way it doesn’t eat you up inside.
: Some people are different than others! Some can’t contain their anger, while others can’t. The fact we are all SERIAL KILLERS suggests we can’t!
: My point exactly. What’s the point in letting tension out within each other, when we can just kill people! That’s the whole reason we have this in the first place!
