Before I say anything else, let me remind you guys that my 2 weeks long Request Rest is over. Requesting and Art Trading is now, once again, opened to all of my friends. And if you're a person who is not friends with me and says me "Hey, be friends with me so I can get free pictures from you", let me remind you how much of a total dick move that is.
As I've said before, I wanna expand on my Totally Spies story that I did a while back and make a whole series of stories of Ruben working with Sam, Clover and Alex. The first story was good but after rereading it recently, I realized it could of used a bit more polish.
First off, why did Omayra send Ruben to a wild goose chase in order to run into the girls and therefore end up working with them when she could just, you know, ask him to come over? Unlike Jerry who likes to "WOOHP" the girls to his office whenever he pleases, I'm pretty sure Omayra would be the kind of boss that would just, you know, ring her agents up and tell them the details via some kinda video watch or holographic phone or whatever. I know it's a cliche, but it's probably the only cliche Omayra's ever gonna have as the head of a spy-ish agency.
Next off, right when the girls find Ruben, they think he's some kinda stalker, right? One trip down one of WOOHP's many hidden passages, Ruben explains he isn't a stalker and the next thing you know, Clover is constantly flirting with him; mentioning his strong arms and saying things along the lines of "See something you like, big boy?~ ". I'm fully aware that out of the 3 girls, Clover is the most flirtatious, but I feel like this could of been a lot more natural. And a lot less hypocritical.
There's also the flaws in Cricket's plans (like the fact that there is no plan and it looks like she's just f-ing around), the 3rd act is a little boring, Mandy's camo was more forced than natural and there's a part that involves an inflatable raft that you can't really get unless you know which episode that was a reference too. In short; the story had a few problems. Which is why I'm rewriting it. A sort of 2nd draft, if you will. The story will have some similarities to the original but it'll mostly be different and I'm thinking of making it a comic.
Edit Part 2: Never mind the never mind! I'll do this story anyways. Just for the heck of it.
And as I work for that, I do have lots of other episodes in mind already. So, to close this journal off, here are a few synopses. Also, each episode has, what the show's wiki calls, a B-story: a side-plot for pretty much every episode. Including these.
Mandy in the House: In an attempt to convince Ruben to work for her instead of the girls, Mandy sneaks into the penthouse to look for him. But that's when she finds the door that Ruben made that leads from the penthouse to Houseware and falls inside. And finds that Houseware, from the inside, if practically his own universe. And when the girls head home only to find the door open and find out that Mandy's in there, they need to get her out before she causes any trouble.
B Story: Ruben is helping Jerry redecorate his office, which is why he's not with the girls to guide them through his mindfuck of a home.
Sam I Am: On a mission where the spies take down an escapee by the name of Dr. Gray (A shrink who uses weird mind/ personality swapping technology on people), Ruben and Sam get zapped by his new device and end up switching bodies. Now they have to cope with being each other while WOOHP tries to find Dr. Gray. And I don't wanna spoil anything, but let's say that an old villain by the name of Jazz Hands makes an appearance.
B Story: Ruben and Sam trying to cover up the fact that they are now each other.
Lover Boy: You guys know how boy band members are always being chased down swarms of fangirls? Well, for some reason, that's happening for tons of normal men all around the globe; girls are getting so attractive to boys that they are chase them down and practically mauling them. And the worst part is that when Jerry sends the spies out on a mission, it happens to Ruben. Alex, Sam and even Clover start to go crazy for him, causing him to get retreat to WOOHP with his terrified tail between his shaking legs. And now Ruben needs do the mission by himself. Which is even worse for him.
B story: The girls try to help Ruben with his shyness around girls. Yeah...hi, I'm Irony. Nice to meet you.
Movie Magic: Several movie theaters around the country are experiencing weird events, such as the characters from their movies seeping out of the screen and attacking the audiences. And in the spies' attempt to stop them, they end up on the big screen, if you see what I did there.
B Story: Clover tries to get Ruben a date by signing him up on a dating website. Good news, she does get him a date. Bad news...it's Mandy.
Scale Models: Tuesday Tate, a villain from the spies' past, returns and hatches a plan to make Amazon like models to destroy other modeling agencies and get revenge.
B Story: In an attempt to do a favor for Clover (Using the word "favor" extremely loosely), Ruben models some of her outfits for her fashion class' modeling show charity event. But when she remembers that she didn't get a model for her female clothes, Ruben surprises her by sneaking out as a guy, but coming in as Raquel Raven; a Brazilian model. Things go well, until the gadget that made Ruben into Raquel breaks and now he has to wait until he fixes it to change back.
I have ones where Ruben's mom and the girls' mom all team up on one mission, Mandy gets her hands on one of Ruben's reality bending gadgets and even one where the spies go back in time, but I've babbled long enough. Bye-bye.
