Courage the Cowardly Dog JR.
Chapter 33: Mirror rorriM
Note: I DEFINATELY do not own "Courage the Cowardly Dog" CN and John R. Dilworth owns the series... however he knows about this fanfic.
Let me be honest here, the reason why I haven't been doing much fanfiction besides work, my Playstation 3 addiction, the Summer trip to Japan, is also because I had to end my relationship with my girlfriend of 4 years because she moved away and I'm very despressed because of it. It's even worse when my friend 8ClockworkPurple8 decides to stop talking to me and refuses to tell me why. She is Izzy's creator. Then I realized I can continue to use her OCs and not get in trouble because she didn't tell me to stop using them, because she refuses to talk to me in general. I will stop if she does though but I dunno when. So enough drama, here's the latest chapter.
FURTHER NOTE: THE AUTHOR IS NOT RESPONCIBLE FOR NIGHTMARES INVOLVING MIRRORS!
(The Magic Shop of Dr. Bellaluna)
Bellaluna then looks at her collection of priceless antiques that possess unknown and multiple magical abilities.
Big Bayou then says to Bellaluna, "I am amazed that you have more magical knowhow than mysssself."
Bellaluna then replies, "Thank you Bayou, I even have a potent rare ingredient for magic... snake bellybutton lint!"
Big Bayou then looks at his underbelly and replies, "But Misssssss, I'm a sssssnake and I ain't got no bellybutton, how did you collect it?" Bellaluna replies, "Well that's why it's rare! Hey I never saw this before!"
Then the two notices a Japanese mirror with a "Spirit Talisman" placed on it. When translated, the talisman reads "Danger! Utsushimi the mirror spirit! Do not remove!" Bellaluna then says, "Hmmm I am running out of talismens so it looks like I got a freebie!" Big Bayou then says to her, "I don't think it'ssssss a good idea Missssss, It musssssst be there for a reasssssson!"
Bellaluna removes the talisman and says to Big Bayou, "Oh what harm can it do?"
But then when Bellaluna looks at the mirror she notices it's glowing and then her reflection comes to life and grabs her arm, but then Big Bayou dashes towards the reflection and was dragged in her place.
Bellaluna was frightened by what she saw and then she sees Fred as he asks her, "Chien dear? What's wrong?" Then Bellaluna notices a hand coming out of another mirror as Bellaluna screams, "Dad look out! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
(Another part of Somewhere)
Courage Jr. and his friends Princess, Manta, Hanako, Izzy, Chowder Jr., Valerie and Billy Blackwell are on the case of ghost clowns attacking a Children's Hospital.
Courage Jr. then says, "Good thing Edna's not here, those ghosts would give Edna so much nightmare fuel. Valerie is frightened by the spirits and then Billy says to her, "Hide in my hat, there's room in there!" And so Valerie hides in Billy's top hat.
Manta then tries to slash at the ghosts but his claws go through them so he says to Junior, "Sorry Mr. Courage Jr. but my claws are no match against those malevolent spirits."
But suddenly the group hears voices speaking in prayer and the ghost clowns became nervous. Then a blonde haired teenage boy shows up in a Christian priest's outfit, followed by a raven haired teenage girl in a Shinto Priestess' outfit, and a bald teenage boy dressed as a Chinese Buddhist Monk.
Junior and his friends are confused by this and they see the three using their weapons to attack the evil spirits, the Christian Priest uses a cross and holy water, the Shinto Priestess uses a prayer stick, and the Buddist Monk uses a 108 bead necklace. The combination of such holy power makes the evil spirits vanish into nothingness.
Courage Jr. then asks, "Who are you three?" Then he trips on something as he hears the voice, "Hey watch it!"
Then he notices a dog suddenly materializes out of nowhere, he is a puppy Junior's age but he is green, slim, wears a red collar, and a red and yellow striped ski hat.
Courage Jr. then asks, "Just who are you and your friends... and how did you do that?"
The green puppy then introduces himself:
"I am Goober the 3rd, I learned the trick to turn invisible from my grandfather Goober, he used to chase ghosts back in 1973. And these are my friends Jonathan Davis the son of a Christian Minister, Miyuki Ito the daughter of a Shinto Priest, and Cheung the son of a Buddhist Monk. It's our job to exorcist evil spirits do the one thing my grandfather never did, to find proof that ghosts do exist! So who are you exactly dog?"
Courage Jr. then says to Goober, "I am Courage Jr., along with my sister Valerie, and my best friends The Princess of the Pink Puddle, Manta the Nekomana, Izzy the Witch, Hanako the ghost, Chowder Jr. the son of a chef, and Billy Blackwell a professional stage magician, and together we keep the peace between humans and monsters by fighting off monsters who wish to do harm.
Goober then says to Junior, "Now I remember who you are! You're so famous in this City and once we read about the paranormal activity in the City we decide to come here and investigate.
Cheung then looks at Hanako and she says, "Well Goober, here's a ghost and she's cute."
Hanako notices the three are carrying holy items that are used for exorcisms and so she hides behind Courage Jr. and whimpers, "Please don't send me to the afterlife... please don't send me to the afterlife."
Courage Jr. then says to Goober's group, "Umm Hanako is very nervous around your items so please put them away."
So they put the items away and Miyuki asks Junior, "How can you fight monsters if most of your friends are monsters anyway?" Junior replies, "You know a wise woman once told me "It takes fire to beat fire", so I thought the one way to get rid of evil ghosts and monsters is get help from GOOD ghosts and monsters, so far it encouraged our worlds to co-exist peacefully."
Cheung then says to Hanako, "Don't worry little one, I won't exorcise you, you're not even evil!" Hanako just comes out of hiding and giggles.
Goober then says to Junior, "Well as long as we're here, we're going to fight monsters in your place since I was raised by someone who has dealt with the supernatural the longest... that and I can turn invisible!"
Courage Jr. then says, "Oh no not this again! Another rival! Umm do you kill monsters good and bad out of prejudice?" Goober looks shocked and says, "Oh heaven's no! You think we're racist or something? No! We only exorcise evil spirits! Otherwise your little friend would be given a one way ticket to the afterlife!" Courage Jr. then breathes a sign of relief and then adds, "How about this, if one major catastrophe happens and the one group who stops the chaotic episode... gets to stay as Somewhere's protectors!"
Goober then says, "Agreed!" And so he shakes Junior's paw and then turns invisible to which Goober replies, "Sorry, I'm still trying to control this ability!"
And so the two groups decide to part ways. Junior, Valerie and Princess decide to return back to their apartment for a little bit of R & R.
As Junior opens the door, Edna says to him, "Hello Boy, There's something weird going on with my brother and parents." Junior then checks it out and sees Mr. and Mrs. Espinoza and Eric wearing glasses as they watch the Television screen. Junior then asks, "What's so weird about that? People wear glasses." Edna then points out the television screen is showing static.
Then suddenly, the three look up at Edna with weird grins on their faces. Eric poundes on Courage Jr. and says to him, "Looks like they're not one of us yet..." Edna then says to him, "Let him go you bully! And take off those ridicious glasses!" Edna takes them off but to her horror Eric makes a creepy grin, then he makes a creepy laugh when Edna looks at his glasses, it's revealed he has no eyes... but his "eyes" are on the glasses and they squint.
Edna's Parents then pull out hand-mirrors as they approach Edna and Junior in a sinister way. Junior sees a pair of paws coming out of one of the mirrors and going towards him but by surprise they see Dr. Bellaluna smashing the mirrors with the head of her spear as she shouts, "Dog! Edna! Come with me if you want to survive!" Courage Jr. makes his usual scream and Edna then replies, "Ok, better to go with you than stay with whatever possessed my family." So the two escape with her and then Edna blurts out, "Waitaminute! What about Princess?"
The three bust through the window and see what appears to be Courage Sr. wearing glasses as she's pushing Princess towards the mirror. Junior then cries out, "Oh no! They got dad! Where's Valerie?" Valerie is hiding behind the couch as she looks helplessly. Courage Jr.'s Ocarina then glows as a signal that something evil is happening and so Junior turns it into a baton and manages to knock out Courage Sr. with it and saves Princess while Bellaluna grabs Valerie and runs outside with the others.
While Courage Jr. Valerie, and Princess catch their breath, they notice Bellaluna and the puppies scream but then Bellaluna then says, "No no no no, I'm on your side this time!" Courage Jr., "It's not that! You know where our apartment is, you're gonna sneak attack us at anytime!" Bellaluna then replies to him, "Actually I knew where your apartment was the whole time, but I made a solmn vow to never attack your apartment for Edna's sake!" Edna then whispers to Junior's ear, "I knew her vow to never attack kids would pay off!"
Bellaluna then asks Valerie, "So what happened back there and why were you so badly frightened?"
Valerie then replies in a worried tone, "When me and Princess entered our room, we saw father wearing glasses and he decided to grab Princess and force her into a mirror but then you showed up and saved us... is this a trick?" Courage Jr. then hugs Valerie and asks, "Yeah Bellaluna, what is that thing and do you have anything to do with it?"
And so, after a lengthy explaination where she was responcible for freeing the creature, the reacted horribly to it and Edna pounds Dr. Bellaluna on the head and she replies, "Ok I deserved that! But we still gotta find a way to undo this madness or else everyone will become evil four eyed freaks! No Offence Edna!" Edna replies, "None taken, but you better stick with this alliance or else you get another knuckle sandwich!"
As the four run they bump into what appers to be Izzy, Manta, Chowder Jr. and Billy Blackwell, the other members of their group. Junior then says to them, "Oh good thing you're here, mirror creatures are suddenly appearing and taking people in their places... and since when do you wear glasses Izzy?
Then with the glares in their glasses, the four make creepy smiles and sinister laughs.
Izzy and Chowder Jr. grab Edna as Billy pulls out a portable mirror. Courage Jr. is powerless to stop them because the creatures are in the form of his friends but then Bellaluna says to him, "They might look like your friends but to me they look like my enemies so I have no qualms to do THIS!" Then she throws a rock at the mirror and she clothesline "Izzy", letting Courage Jr. go as she says to "Izzy", "If anyone's gonna manhandle the puppy it's gonna be me!"
As she fights off the four and punches "Izzy" in the stomach, She screams, "Go on without me! I'm the one who can use magic to whoop their keisters!" Princess was thinking about spraying the four with her water but like Courage Jr. she too had a hard time attacking anything that looks like her friends... Then she notices that Hanako isn't around. She then grabs the two pups and Edna as they continue to run to Bellaluna's shop.
Edna, Princess, and the pups then run into Di Lung and as he takes of his sunglasses, he is shown eyeless and says to them, "Watch where ya goin' ya foos! ahahahahahaha!"
The four run off but they suddenly find themselves being chased by hundreds of civilians who are actually victims of Utsushimi and the reflections took their place. Then from out of nowhere they see Bellaluna grab the four and she says, "What are you four doing there? My shop was right behind you! Oh and I picked up your two friends Jennifer and Rachel! "
So they run into it and Bellaluna and Junior baracaded the door with many planks of wood. Bellaluna then says, "I can't belive I'm responcible for releasing the Utsushimi!"
"What's a Utsushimi?" Says a rather worried Edna.
Bellaluna explains, "A mirror spirit, it was apparently freed when I pulled the spirit ward out of the mirror it was sealed in the spirit takes your reflection, switch places with you and walks around in the night so those you act weird are apparently switched... we're the only ones left we need to think of a plan."
Junior then says, "I don't know about you but my Journal never mentions anything about mirror spirits! Oh my... *gasp*... Look at Rachel and Jennifer's T-shirt designs... IT'S BACKWARDS! THEYRE ONE OF THEM!"
"Jennifer" then makes a creepy giggle. Emma-chan then says, "Aww... you found out already, and here I was trying to quietly trap you..." Suddenly she turn around and she makes a hideous smile at Edna and the pups as she says, ...BEHIND THE MIRROR!"
Edna, Princess, Bellaluna, and the pups then see a huge mirror behind mirror "Jennifer" and "Rachel" and inside the mirror they see countless victims inside the mirror, especially Izzy and the real Rachel and Jennifer, all of them screaming "HELP ME!"
Courage Jr. and Valerie gasp as mirror Rachel then says, "You are the last ones left... Come, Join the Mirror world... hee hee hee... it's a little suffocating in there but once you get used to it, it's quite roomy. No use trying to escape, the mob will break into the hotel and you will join us... hee hee hee!"
Edna then pulls out a broom and runs towards the mirror, about to smash it. But then a ghost who turns out to be Violet Macpherson materializes and shouts, NO! DON'T DO IT!" Then Hanako materialized with her. Bellaluna then says, "Who's side are you on anyway?" Violet then says, "After looking up Madam Shirley's guide of supernatural weird stuff I looked up the Utsushimi, anyway if you smash that mirror, you will smash your friends and they will be d... Hanako then says, "Since the Utsushimi is a ghost, then I recruited another ghost to help me fight this evil ghost... now run!
As Junior and the rest run off the ghosts end up fighting off Mirror-Rachel and Mirror-Jenny and then mirror Jenny asks, "You turncoats, why are you helping humans, you're ghosts just like us!" Hanako then says, "Well we like humans and if we try hard, we might live in a peaceful utopia with them and it's evil like you that should go away!" Hanako then summons a ball of water from the toilet and blasts them with it, knocking their glasses off then Violet breaks it and it causes the mirror creatures to scream in pain.
Meanwhile, Edna, Bellaluna, Princess, and the pups are trying to escape but they are surrounded by the mirror spirits as they grab them and are about to put them in the big mirror.
Valerie then thinks to herself, "My big brother learned to fight fire with fire, so he got the help of a ghost to beat a ghost... so if I pulls out the small mirror mommy gave me before Princess adopted me, I shall try to seal the utsushimi by placing this mirror in front of the big mirror and make a compound mirror barrier. I hope this works!
Edna and Princess then sees Valerie pulls out a compact mirror and exposes it to Bellaluna's cursed mirror and this causes a chain reaction and then the mirror duplicates howl in pain and then many legions of mirror spirits are sucked back into haunted mirror, Courage Jr. then notices the spirit seal in Bellaluna's hands and so he grabs it and puts it on the mirror, and Valerie duct tapes it to the mirror, making sure that nothing like this would ever EVER EVER happen again!
Soon Edna, Princess, Courage Jr., and Valerie notices everyone is back to normal with no knowledge of what has happened. But then they see Izzy and Billy have Bellaluna in their clutches as Izzy says to them, "We caught her! Now let's get her arrested!"
Bellaluna then says, "Actually witch-girl, I turned myself in! Oh sure I chase the puppies for the tails, hire many bad guys to do the job, Courage Sr.'s enemies even, steal many items, but I believe what I unintentionally did involving the Utsushimi was a little too far but to teach myself as lesson, I think I deserve to be put away for a while."
And so the police show up and take Bellaluna away while Courage Jr. goes up to her and says, "Thank you for your help and for having standards. Maybe they'll let you go for good behavior!" Izzy then says to Princess and Edna behind Bellaluna's back, "Good behavior? YEAH RIGHT!" and they all giggle.
Courage Jr. then says to his friends, "Now that the big threat is over... let's go get some pumpkin pie!" Then everyone cheers.
Bellaluna sits alone in her cell as she starts asking the reader, "If everything was reversed, which world would be the real world? Would it be the mirror world or this one? Maybe the reflection is real, ever thought of that? Isn't that freaking you out? Eh, Reader? I'm playing with your mind! And you wonder what the weird part is? I sense the very fear and confusion in your very soul, Eh, Reader? AHAHA! AHAHAHAHAHAHA!"
AND THEY ALL LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER...
(Utsushimi laughs evily)
WELL, MAYBE NOT!
Next Time: I dunno if the next chapter would involve vampires or more evil spirits, send me suggestions please!
