From the Desk of Sharper, bcbdrums, and GothicThundra
Hello, everyone, we finally made it to that point. It is time to reveal the winners of the 15th Annual KP Fannies Awards. Of course, this is the third (and last) time (for now? Who knows. :P ) that the plot of this story will focus on the live-action movie. Also present is a parody of the streaming services that every network seems to be going into these days...and of course, the craziness that we're all dealing with right now with the...thing-that-shall-not-be-named.
So let's kick back and enjoy the ceremony...hopefully without incident this time...hopefully... :P
Kim Possible, characters and settings (both live-action and the toon) are created by Schooley and McCorkle and (c) by Disney.
The fanfic is rated T for some language, comic action violence, a drug reference, mild thematic elements and some suggestive dialogue.
Chapter 1 - Quarantine
(LAM verse, April 16, 2020, 6pm)
And the Dow dropped today by another 1000 points due to the virus pandemic...
...schools throughout Colorado will be closed until further notice...
...there are now 7,303 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Colorado with 290 deaths...
...Smarty-Mart is now instituting rationing for paper towels, toilet paper, and tissues, along with hand sanitizer and cold medicine...
Kim Possible sighed, looking at the depressing news on the TV. Even though she was the girl who can do anything, it was beyond her comprehension to dealing with the sitch involving the coronavirus, something that wasn't machine-made by one of her rogue's gallery of villains in one of their world-domination plots. Although she, Ron, and Athena were deemed as 'essential workers' in their duties of saving the world by Colorado's governor, no villain on Kim's list has even attempted a world-domination plot because they required the use of henchpeople, which would be a violation of 'social gatherings' of more than 10 people.
"Athena, can you please turn off the TV? It's bringing my mood down!" she insisted. The current 15-year old, in a blue shirt and jeans with her Kimmunicator pendant, was sitting on one end of the couch. "I'll have to switch it to a streaming service."
Athena was sitting on the other end of the sofa, due to the art of social distancing of staying 6 feet away. She was in a purple heart t-shirt and jeans.
"I'll get it..." the teenaged cyborg said. She looked in the cushions.
"That is, if I can find it..."
Kim tried her hand in finding the remote. However, it was nowhere to be seen in the couch.
"Don't tell me the Tweebs have it!" Kim groaned. She knew what potential danger a mere TV remote would be in the hands of Jim and Tim. Last time they did so, they caused a 12-hour long power outage in Middleton.
"I'll ask your Dad..." Athena said while standing up from the couch.
"Ask away." Kim insisted, "Keep in mind, though, that Dad is busy doing the 2020 US Census."
"Hey ! Have you seen the remote?" she asked into the kitchen.
"Yeah, it should be on the coffee table...I think..." James replied. "Now...do we count you in the census?"
"Dad...you're a rocket scientist and Mom is a brain surgeon. You should probably know the answer!" Kim replied.
"Then I would take that as a yes." James replied, marking down his answer.
"Speaking of Mom, is she still at the hospital?" Kim asked.
"Unfortunately, yes, she is, Kimmie-cub." James answered. "She has been working 14-hour shifts ever since this whole virus outbreak began. And I'm working from home as well due to the fact that one of the scientists tested positive for the virus."
Kim sighed, "I can't be cooped up in here!"
"Doesn't Middleton High have that e-learning thing up?" Athena questioned.
"They do, yes." Kim said, "But some students in the district don't have access to a computer."
"Have you two seen Ronald?" James asked, sniffing the air.
"He's coming over here to the house." Kim replied, "Said something about getting a few things from Smarty-Mart."
"How can he? Did you even see the scenes of empty shelves?" Athena asked in disbelief.
"I don't get him sometimes, Athena." Kim said before hearing a knock on the door.
"Can you get that, Kim? It's probably Ron." Athena replied.
Kim got up from the couch and wondered. "How did you know?"
She opened the door and saw Ron clad, head to toe, in a HAZMAT suit with disinfectant spray in two gun holsters. He was also holding a duffel bag.
"Ron...what are you doing?" Kim groaned.
"KP, I'm doing what I have to do to protect my friends!" Ron exclaimed as he took a couple of cans of disinfectant spray from the holsters to begin spraying the Possible house. "I do not want the death virus to kill the ones I treasure the most."
Kim began to cough.
"Ron...you don't have to go that far! All we have to do is follow the CDC recommendations and we should be fine!" she insisted.
"What about Nana, though?" Ron countered, "At her age, the virus would be more problematic!"
"It's no big, Ron! We can still chat with her!" Kim said, dismissing his concern.
"How?" Ron asked.
"Duh! We live in the year 2020, Ron! Video chat!" Kim sighed.
"Oh right!" Ron said, realizing the technology. "I almost forgot about that."
"Ronald..." James said as he entered into the living room. "...would you mind being watchful about the disinfectant spray?"
"Dad, it's just Ron being Ron." Kim replied.
She then whispered, "You did stock up in the panic room, did you?"
He whispered back, "We did. We bought at least 50 rolls of toilet paper and 20 rolls of paper towels. As long as we don't run out of supplies, we should be fine."
"Ron...lose the HAZMAT suit..." Kim insisted. "Why don't you come and sit with us so that we can stream some movies together? It'll take our minds off this thing for at least a few hours."
Thankfully, Kim made Ron take off the suit, but not before he sprayed every square inch of the Possible household with at least 30 cans of the disinfectant spray.
