By: Gauntlet (aka Shadowman)
Time has passed for the Mechanical Maniacs. With their newfound wealth, they purchased the giant Technodrome as their new base. Shadowman (AKA Gauntlet) took on full leadership duties from Topman and appointed his sister as the new Needlegal. Their site has grown immensely and now they are reading their mail...
Sparkman: HEY! I gots a letter!
Snakeman: Cool. Who'ssss it from?
SPARKMAN YOU ARE MY HERO I WANT TO BE WITH YOU FOR EVER.I WISH YOU WERE MY BOYFRIEND THEN NO ONE WOULD MESS WITH ME SINCE YOU ARE THE SPARKMAN. LOVE: MELISSA
Spark: Finally! Someone who truly appreciates me!
Magnet: Kinda weird if you ask me...
Spark: Well, nobody asked you!
Magnet: What kind of poor creature would see Sparkman as a god?
Spark: SHUT IT!
Gauntlet: Well, you gotta admit it's kinda funny a girl'd like a no-handed freak like you.
Spark: DAMN YOU ALL TO HELL!
(The very next day, Sparkman receives another letter...)
I SAW YOU AGAIN TODAY AND YOU LOOK CUTER THAN EVER! I SAVED SOME OF YOU'R SPARE PARTS FOR MY COLLECTION. YOU SHOULD BE LEADER OF THE MECHANICAL MANIACS. LOVE:MELISSA
Spark: See? She recognizes my genius!
Spark: And she even left me a nice dozen donuts on the bench where I hang out! Isn't she sweet?
Needlegal: She's a friggin' STALKER. Like whoa, dude!
Spark: She is not!
Top: I think it's pretty damn obvious that she is!
Spark: Alright! Well, maybe she is! But so what? How many chicks you know go for guys who look like me??
Needlegal: Aw, there are plenty of girls who'd go for you!
Spark: Does that include you?
Needlegal: Um...well...y'see...I already have a boyfriend...if things were different...
Gauntlet: I'm just not sure how stable this person could be, Spark.
Spark: Aw come on! I don't need your permission to date!
Gauntlet: Well, no, but...
Spark: Then I'm gone! See ya!
Snake: Thisssss can only end badly.
Top: Hey, Snake, since when did you start talking like that?
Snake: Sssssssssince I sssssssssaw the Megaman TV show. I thought it wassssss ssssssso cool, that I should do it all the time!
(Sparkman begins his quest to find his soul mate...)
Spark: (Thought) It's hopeless...there could be a thousand Melissas around here! Any one of them could be my soul mate!
(Spark goes into a bar and starts moping.)
Spark: Ooooh my sweet, darling Melissa! Where could you be!? I feel as if you are the only one who understands me!
Bartender: Hey buddy. You "Sparkman"?
Spark: Yes, yes I am!
Bartender: Well, here you go.
I KNOW YOU WANT ME LIKE I WANT YOU. I AM SO GLAD. NOW YOU CAN BE MY BOYFRIEND! I HAVE A SMALL CONFESSION TO MAKE...I STOLE SOME OF YOUR UNDERWEAR. I JUST WANTED TO BE CLOSER TO YOU. COME TO ME. I'LL MEET YOU AT THE HOTEL RITZ. COME SOON! LOVE:MELISSA
Spark: She stole my underwear~! How romantic!
Bartender: Sounds like a psycho t'me. I'd just stay away 'less you wanna end tied up in some basement somewhere.
Spark: Well, who asked you? I am coming, my Melissa!
Bartender: Crazy robots always comin' in here...
(Spark makes his way to the hotel only to find...)
Spark: Melissa? Are you here?? Are we playing hide-and-go-seek~?
(Suddenly, Sparkman is snared in metal cables that bind him tightly to a huge machine that was hiding in the other room!)
Spark: Oooooo. Kinky!
Someone: Glad you could show up!
Spark: *Gasp* My GOD! It's Doc Robot! And Iceman Red! And Gemini Red!
Iceman Red: Yes! It was actually us who sent you those letters!
Spark: You mean...
Gemini Red: That's right!
Spark: NO!!! My body can't be used for THAT! Not by 3 GUYS!
Spark: Listen...I am not GAY!
Spark: Not that there is anything wrong with that! But I am not gay! Now you can let me out of your kinky fantasy here and -
Gemini Red: Will you SHUT UP! Look beside you for a moment.
(Spark does so and sees a captive Elecman and Bitman!)
Spark:...I think I see...
Doc Robot: NO! Don't say another word! It's probably something stupid! You see, we've trapped the electricity Robot Masters here to power a huge machine that will erase all the video tapes in the world!
Spark, Bit, Andon: Huh!?
Iceman Red: You see, the world runs on media. Once all the tapes are destroyed, we will have the only selection of videos available! Then, not only will we be rich from the rental profits, but our videos have mind-control embedded in them as well! We will rule the world!
Gemini Red: Yes, such a plan could only be conceived by someone RED!
Iceman Red: We have a lot in common, you and I. We're both evil opposites, we're both evil -
Gemini Red: AND WE'RE BOTH RED!
Iceman Red: Don't you just love our color?
Andon: You freaks won't get away with this! My pals will come and -
Doc Robot: Quiet, you! LET THE ENERGY EXTRACTION BEGIN!
(The machine slowly draws energy from the Robot Masters...)
Spark: So, how'd they get you, Elec? You're supposed to be pretty smart.
Andon: Well...they said that they'd help me overthrow the government and plunge the world into anarchy. Kinda embarrassing that I'd fall for that.
Spark: "Plunge the world..."? Aren't you supposed to be a GOOD GUY!?
Andon: HEY, anarchy is a great thing! The government is an evil, corrupt monster. It restricts your rights under the guise of "keeping the peace" all the while saying how free they are! The government is a paradox of contradictory laws and hidden purposes and should be stopped at all costs.
Bit: They promised me a cut of the loot.
Spark: No one was talking to you, Bit-ma'am! Ugh, suddenly I feel very tired~
Iceman Red: Finally Elecman will shut up! If I have to hear one more thing from that guy...
Andon: HEY! When I get out of here...~
Gemini Red: Victory is OURS!
Someone: NOT TODAY!
Doc Robot: GAUNTLET!
Gauntlet: That's right! We followed Spark in case his stalker turned out to be a serial killer! Looks like we weren't far off!
(The bad guys attack, but are outnumbered by the Mechanical Maniacs!)
Gemini: I thought you were done for, red-me!
Gemini Red: What can I say? Extant spared me the hell of being merged permanently with you! He saw my potential and plucked me out of a branch in the timeline just before the realities collapsed back to normalcy. I'm a kooky time-anomaly!
Iceman Red: Grrrrr...they're beating us!
Doc Robot: Don't worry, I know just the thing! TIME STOPPER!
Iceman Red: Good goin' Doc, but were frozen too!
Doc Robot: You are? Oh well. GOODBYE!
(Doc Robot escapes and everyone else unfreezes.)
Gemini Red: What now, partner?
Iceman Red: I'm leaving!
(Iceman Red disappears in a flash of light!)
Gemini Red: YOU BASTARD! GET BACK HERE!
(Gemini Red is knocked out before he can teleport once more. Snakeman feeds Bit, Spark, and Elec an Energy Tank to replenish their energies and then they destroy the device!)
Andon: Great goin' guys!
Snakeman: Yup. It was a great fight.
Gemini: Hey, yer not doing the hissing thing like the Snakeman on the TV show!
Snake: Yeah, well, I rethought it and decided it was kinda lame.
Bit: Some hero I turned out to be...got tricked by those amateurs...
Bit: Aw, this just isn't the same without the others.
Snake: Hm...I guess things turned out alright after all...
Needlegal: Yeah, and we learned something too...
Gauntlet: As we do in EVERY adventure.
Needlegal: Yup! We learned that you shouldn't do everything you see on TV! That "ssss" thing was very annoying!
Gauntlet: I couldn't have said it better!
Spark: What about my thing? "Beware of stalkers"?
Gauntlet: Only you would be so stupid as to actually fall for a trap like this!
Spark: I guess...HEY!
Top: Well, until Spark get to keep the girl, we are...the Mechanical Maniacs!
