Kosumu smiled widely, liking the idea already. Of course! Why hadn't he thought of that before? "Elder!" He took Fujin's hand and took off running immediately. After a few minute's he was tugging on the sleeves of a rather tall man to get his attention. "Excuse!" The man turned to the boy. "Looking for Elder! Know where?"
As it turned out, the man was the same one with the bright yellow scarf...
Metal and Climber appeared as well, holding a few bags in hand.
"We've finished the shopping!" Climber said cheerfully; it's not that he didn't miss Gantz, in fact he missed him very much, but he thought a cheerful greeting would help brighten the mood. "Got some food here, and Metal has the-"
"We saw something odd, coming home." Metal said suddenly, cutting off Climber. "We were on our way back when suddenly this guy walked out of the nearby restaurant." In his visor the emoticon, '>_>' appeared. "Someone-and I actually can't believe I'm saying this- laughed himself to death. It was a pretty gruesome sight."
It was just the thing the mannequin didn't want to talk about around the others, but he figured it had to be said either way... ... ...
Then the next newcomer came in. "Hey guys, look! It's Chip!" Climber said, pointing to the door.

A 90's kid entering into this hard new era with little else then a bit of imagination, ingenuity and the ability to draw connections where few may see them.

Nutcase began thinking hard. After Beatrice explained what happened in regards to her former friend Treetune, he'd been deep in thought.
"She started thinking really deeply and stuff too. Said that the individual didn't matter, and all sorts of stuff. Basically, she was talking like that little bitch who's taken over Gantz' body"
Beatrice's words echoed through his mind. Finally, he got up, and went to Beatrice. When he went into the nxt roo he saw Metal and Climber were putting groceries away. He also saw Chip but didn't pay him any mind, since what he had to say was very important. He found Beatrice, Talim, and taffy talking as well. That's when he broke the ice.
"Beatrice, I've been thinking about what you said about Treetune. I don't think she's really Treetune. At least not anymore."
Nutcase and the others failed to notice Chip staring at him intently.

(OOC: 42, if you were wondering, I wasn't ignoring your character and the guy who laughted himself to death. I just argued that Schala and Kosumu were in a different part of the village. :3)
"Kosumu, I am not confident he is from here," Schala looked up at the man with the scarf, "I apologize if we have caused you inconvenience. We are looking for someone. If you do know where the elder's hut is, we would most appreciate it if you could guide us there."
The blue-haired girl had tattered clothes that looked like they may have at one point been very high quality and noble. Despite being in poor condition, it was clear the fabric was of very high quality in something that resembled silk. She carried herself regally, as one might expect a noble lady or even a princess to. However, she didn't have the air of superiority many had. It was obvious she considered herself no better than anyone else.
And there was a pain of some sort behind her eyes... it wasn't severe. But it appeared more was going on in the young woman's head than was immediately evident.

"What do you mean she's not Tree anymore?" Beatrice asked. Taffy seemed to think Nutcase was thinking about something else. "No, she was running from them... She couldn't have been replaced by them... not unless..." Taffy was thinking to himself as he said this.
"Chip" glanced back at Climber and Metal. The doll had a Chaos Emerald, but there was no need to get greedy. No, "Chip" had to complete the mission. The alien straightened up, and suddenly attacked Nutcase with a leechsleeve.
"Too long... I waited too long... but not now... I'm finally going to take that power from you..." "Chip" said , walking up closer to Nutcase.
"Chip?!" Beatrice asked in astonishment, and kicked the alien away from Nutcase. "What the hell!?"
"Eheheheh... 'Chip'... you're still calling me that..." As the alien said this, his features began to slowly shift. His hair became longer and turned to blond, his skin to a pale tan color, but his eyes stayed the same dull silver they'd been since he ran off earlier. Standing in front of them was no longer Chip, but a soulless woman who had been taking Chip's form the whole time.

"W-what the!?" Nutcase shouted, suprised at what the hell just happened. He ducked under "Chip's" attack and delivered a sharp kick to the woman he had turned into. The kick sent her flying across the room, allowing Nutcase to draw his keyblade.
"Who-or what-are you?!" Nutcase shouted as he prepared for attack. His earlier sadness had been wiped away, as his fighting spirit was ignited once more knowing his very life was on the line.

The woman picked herself up off of the ground, chuckling to herself. "I don't suppose you need to know that. You'll be dead soon enough, anyways," she said. She backflipped out of the way of a rain of exploding needles from Taffy.
"You! Why are you here!?" Taffy yelled. "Weren't you settled with chasing Tree?!"
"Tree? I don't know any trees. Trees aren't sentients, though, so I don't think they'd be much of a problem anyways," the woman said. Taffy fired another rain of needles, which she dodged.
"Nutcase! Beatrice! Everyone! This chick's not Chip, and she's not human either! She's called Ms. Dopple. She's the reason Tree's been missing for so long!" Taffy yelled. "I don't know why she's here, but if she's been following us for so long, she's probably here to kill us too!"
Ms. Dopple chuckled once more. "I'm only after the lifeforce of the toon. Nothing else." With that, she swung another leechsleeve at Nutcase.

(OOC: OOPS. >_> I wrote her name as Schala. Sorry! *fixes so it reads Fujin*)
"I see. Thank you very much for your time," Fujin spoke up so the man could hear her as he walked off. He had seemed a little curt. She frowned and turned to Kosumu. She was about to suggest they ask someone else when her ears picked up on some shouting.
The young woman turned in time to see a volley of needles come out of some alleyway and an entity with odd looking sleeves barely dodge said volley. She blinked as ran back into the alley and turned to Kosumu, "Perhaps.... we should take leave and go elsewhere..."
Whoever was there seemed to be fighting, and she had a feeling getting involved would be a bad idea...

Nutcase dodged the appendage, and then another and another. Soon he began taunting the shape-shifting enemy by acting like the ducks in the shooting gallery carnival game, as he walked back and forth in a robotic motion, always turning away from the approaching tendrils as they shot out at him despite Ms. Dopple's efforts to ensnare the loon.
Finally, Nutcase then said, "You wan't me? Come and get me!!!" With that, the lunatic stuck his toung out repeatedly, somehow creating the sound of a wine bottle being corked and uncorked very quickly for about one and a half seconds before shouting "BEEP BEEP!!!".
At that moment, Nutcase seemingly vanishes from sight, when in reality he ran out so fast he couldn't be seen. A cartoony sonic boom filled the air that was akin to a gunshot, further emphasizing this fact. A split second after Nutcase ran off, a loud CRASH sound was heard as a hole was left in the side of the hut in the shapeof Nutcase's full sillouette.
Nutcase's right hand in said sillouette was raised up, and a certain finger was raised up to mock Ms. Dopple.

Ms. Dopple gave a sly grin. "So you want to play that way, do you, Cartoon Boy? What if I told you I knew what had happened to all of your old friends? Especially Rosaline?"
That was sure to turn a few heads. Though before she could continue her lie, she had to dodge another rain of needles from Taffy.
"I will destroy you!" Taffy roared. Ms. Dopple smirked.
"Oh really, monkey boy? Something tells me you'll be singing a different tune once your precious Bea-Bea is dead," Ms. Dopple said. She suddenly turned to Beatrice, and smacked her across the alley into a wall with a leechsleeve. The girl coughed up some glimmering gold fluid.
"Ow, that hurt, dammit!" Beatrice said, stumbling to her feet.
Taffy continued shooting rains of needles at Ms. Dopple, which were easily dodged, until she grabbed him with a leechsleeve. The fangs on the sleeve dug into his body, causing him to bleed heavily. She finally threw him into the wall of the alley, and there was a snap as Taffy's leg broke.
"Damn you!" Taffy yelled. "I will kill you! I will kill you, you bitch!" Even for Taffy, this was a more violent reaction than normal...

Something-or someone (the answer's obvious, but bear with me)-ran Ms Dopple over; sneaker prints seen printed into her body. The force of the hit freed Taffy and Beatrice, and not a moment too soon considering what was happening to them.
Nutcase was seen next to the door, a wide grin onhis face reminessaint of his all-time favorite cartoon character, the Road Runner. He then held up a sign that said "Nutcase S. Ball (Loonytoonicus Psychoticus)". He threw it in Ms. Dopple's face, throwing her back twenty feet. Nutcase took hold of Beatrice and Taffy and fled at high speed after another call of "BEEP BEEP!!!!!!".
Looking at the sign a second time, it's words somehow changed. It now said "Ms. Dopple (Idioticus Moronus)".

Ms. Dopple stared at the sign, giving it the same bored look as usual, then crushed it under her foot.
"Hey, Nutcase! Now's not the time to be playing Looney Tunes! In case you haven't noticed, this crazy bitch is trying to kill you!" Beatrice yelled.
"If you all wouldn't get in the way, you wouldn't have to die too," Ms. Dopple commented. She swung another leechsleeve at Beatrice, who jumped over it, and then onto it, tripping Ms. Dopple up and caused her to fall. Beatrice was then thrown off of the leechsleeve by Ms. Dopple swinging it back up.
"Though, you would make good Doppelgangers, now that I think of it. I'll have to ask Ms. Mirror to look into the Human Conversion Project again now that the Half-Breed Conversion Project is a success," Ms. Dopple said, chuckling. "Though, I fear that your wills would be too strong. You might die."
This time, she was prepared for Nutcase's return, and awaited the next cartoonish trick, as Beatrice ran up to attack the doppelganger, who dodged every attack, and then countered the last one, a roundhouse kick to the face, by throwing Beatrice into a wall, again.

"I think I'll take hidden option #3, Dopple. I choose not to die and I choose not to become an energy-stealing frakshow. I prefer to be a laughter-inducing freakshow." Nutcase said as he thought about what to do to Ms. Dople now. She's clearly starting to get wise to him.
'Well, Bugs always told me that the fake out is the best road in these cases.' The loon thought as he prepared his next trick.
Reaching into his pocket, Nutcase picked up a toy tank with a wind-up key on the back. The word "ACME" was printed on in bold, white letters. After winding it up, Nutcase let it loose as it slowly drove up to Ms. Dopple.
'The beauty of this is that she'll think it'll blast her, heeheehee!'
The clockwork tank stopped and prepared to fire. Ms Dopple noticed it and held Beatrice and Taffy back as she awaited to see what the toy would do, though she had a feeling she knew what to expect. She was taken off gaurd as the tank fired a bull's eye at her, which somehow stuck to her body.
At that moment, a shadow loomed over her head. A large, square-shaped shadow. She looked up to see a large metalic object coming down on top of her.
The anvil sucseeded in landing on Ms. Dopple. From there, Nutcase saw that the anvil missed Beatrice and taffy since they were luckily out of range. He produced some healing potions and gave them to the duo and said, "Get ready, time for the main event! She's bound to be pretty pissed when she gets out of there."
With that, he summoned his keyblade and took a battle stance. He also reached into his pocket, pulling out a sheild to help block attacks.
