Hey everyone! So, I know I have a lot of other stories I should be updating, not to mention I'm behind on my reviewing, but this story has been stuck in my head for at least a month.
So, I finally typed out the first little bit of it.
And, if you haven't read my story, A Midsummer Morn's Nightmare, you need to do that. This is a sequel to the first ending (not the alternate ending!).
This will probably not have the priority over my other stories, but I hope to be able to update it sooner, rather than later.
Disclaimer: In some alternate universe, I do own Phineas and Ferb. Not in this one...
A week. That's how long ago it was that Isabella Garcia-Shapiro nearly died. That's how long ago a kiss had brought her back.
A kiss from Phineas Flynn.
She still didn't know this, however. Phineas and his stepbrother, Ferb Fletcher, had told no one else of what happened. Their sister, Candace, had a vague idea of what had gone on that day, but even she didn't know of the kiss.
A kiss that had begun quite the argument.
"Ferb! I said I would tell her! Just give me some time."
Phineas and Ferb were sitting under the tree in their backyard. They had been attempting to decide what to do that day when Ferb brought up telling Isabella about the kiss.
Phineas had immediately baulked at the idea.
Ferb rolled his eyes.
"Yes, it has been a week, I get it. But I just don't know how to tell her."
Ferb raised an eyebrow.
"I'll figure it out! It's just hard for me. I'm only eleven! I never thought I'd have to deal with love until I was in high school, at least!"
"You're too young to do any of the things we did this summer. Has that stopped you?"
Phineas blinked. "No…" he said slowly.
"Then why is it here? You've even proved that you love her back, so why can't you just tell her?"
Phineas sighed and slouched a little. "I don't know. I just don't know…"
Perry walked up to the guitar. He glanced around, placed his fedora on his head, and grabbed the guitar. He played the correct sequence of chords, and jumped into the tube that appeared under the amp.
Once seated in front of the monitor, Major Monogram appeared. "Good morning, Agent P. Sorry about repeating the guitar entrance, but we're running low on ideas."
"Sir?" Carl called out, "didn't you say this was an emergency?"
"Right! Agent P, Dr. Doofenshmirtz has gone and created an –Inator that can open portals to alternate realities!"
Perry gasped. That meant-
"This means that he may return to the Second Dimension and regain his memories of your cover identity. You must stop him, Agent P!"
Perry nodded and rushed out.
"Hey Phineas? Whatcha doin'?"
Phineas looked to see Isabella walking through the gate. He blushed slightly, turned to Ferb and whispered, "Don't you dare."
After Ferb nodded slightly, Phineas turned back to Isabella. "Hey Isabella. We're trying to figure out what to do today."
"Oh, okay." Isabella came and sat down next to Phineas. As he attempted not to blush, he noticed Isabella seemed… off.
"Isabella, are you okay?"
"Kinda. I had a dream that was a lot like the one from last week."
Phineas frowned. "That's awful! I wish there was some way to turn it into a happy ending."
Ferb shook his head. "To do that, we would need to make her dream that again and enter her dream world while she slept."
Phineas started thinking. "Dream world…" He snapped his fingers. "That's it! I know what we're gonna do today! We're gonna make a device that can take us to different worlds!"
Ferb grinned, but Isabella looked confused. "Couldn't you just make another spaceship for that?"
"Not for these worlds. These worlds would be dreams, alternate realities, and stuff like that! After all, there are infinite possible universes, including one like your nightmare, but with a happy ending!"
Isabella's confusion molded into surprise. "You'd do that for me?"
Phineas couldn't keep the blush from his face this time. "Of course. After all, I-" He stopped for a moment, then rephrased that last bit. "You're my best friend."
Isabella smiled and embraced him, much to the surprise of both boys. "Thanks Phineas."
After an awkward moment of being unable to move, Phineas returned her embrace. "You're welcome."
Ferb smirked at the couple. Then, a thought struck him. He glanced around before asking, "Hey, where's Perry?"
Perry kicked down the door. Instantly, a large slinky dropped over him, trapping him.
"Ah, Perry the Platypus, how surprising to see you here. And by surprising I mean… well, not very surprising, I guess."
Perry looked to see Doofenshmirtz beside a large covered object.
"Well, I'm kinda in a hurry today, so I think I'll skip the back story. Behold! The Alternate-Reality-Inator!"
He paused, as a cover lifted off of a device almost exactly like the Alternate-Dimension-ator, only differing in the fact that there were three of the large scoop-like parts instead of one.
He waited a moment before face palming. "I guess I need to give you a back story for this to make sense. You remember the time I mentioned our life wasn't like a TV show? Well, I've been thinking about that, and I realized that it is like a TV show! If that's the truth, then there must be some other universe where they write the scripts for our lives. So, with my Alternate-Reality-Inator, I will travel to that universe, change the script, and finally take over the Tri-State Area!"
He cackled with evil glee as Perry stared in horror.
Somehow, what Doof said actually made sense. If he managed to change how things were to go, there would be no stopping him.
Doof trailed off and glanced at his watch. "You know, I can still barely read this thing, but I think I'm running behind. So, I'll just push this button," which he did, opening a green portal, "and be on my way." With that, the evil scientist vanished into an alternate reality, with the portal closing behind him.
"Well, that was fast."
Phineas smiled at Isabella. Of course he had made it fast. He wanted her to get better sooner, rather than later. "Well, we do that occasionally."
He turned to Ferb. "You have the inter-universal coordinates ready?"
Ferb clicked a button on the machine, turned around, and gave Phineas a thumb's up.
"Alright, I guess we're-"
"Phineas and Ferb! What are you two doing out here?"
The three turned to see Candace storming out of the house.
"Hey Candace! We're going to an alternate universe to try to help Isabella get over that nightmare she had last week."
Candace immediately lost the annoyed look. "So, you're basically doing an extension of last week?"
Phineas thought for a moment. "I guess you could put it that way."
Candace grinned. "Well, since I did say I wouldn't bust you for that, I can at least come along this time."
At that precise moment, a bird flying by ran into the top of the machine. The bird was (mostly) unharmed, but the impact caused the inter-universal coordinates to scramble. The entire event went unnoticed.
"Alright then. If that's everything…"
Ferb nodded and activated the machine. A green flash, and a portal appeared.
The four stepped through the portal.
And there you have it!
Can anyone guess where this is going? I'm pretty sure the title gives it away, but I'd still like to see people guess.
Especially since that means more reviews...
Anyway, WordNerb93 is out. PEACE!
