The Scare & Scurry North Pole Battle

Continued From The Scare & Scurry Scottish Sanctuary…The Following Events Took Place In October Of 2014…

The McTavish International Academy Of Magical Sciences was in ruins on the Scottish countryside as the battle between magic and an unknown technology came to a close! Everyone was seriously down for the count including the most powerful magician on Earth Ian McTavish. All stopped by either energy beams or the odd warping of space that amazingly overwhelmed all things supernatural! This included most of the Mystic Investigations team! The man in the futuristic-looking exoskeleton shot through walls and flew up to the third floor of one of the few intact building on the magic school campus. There the Demi-Mermaid Witch Rebecca Abernathy and Telekinetic Psychic Julia Hathaway sat with the terrified Elmer and Gertrude Carpmeister. The geriatric couple that was the target of the exoskeleton of evil! Rebecca then screamed, “Mystic Sphere!” Her pink translucent metaphysical energy bubble formed around her and she brought the couple and Julia within as well. She then commanded, “sursum volant!” and the sphere crashed through the roof and flew high in the dark starry skies above! The horrifying exoskeleton followed in hot pursuit! Rebecca attempted to elude him but he was gaining fast. In a last ditch attempt to lose him she flew into outer space toward the moon where she had been in 2011 after an alien attack. Thankfully she had drunk a powerful potion just before the flight! Unfortunately, the vacuum of space didn’t deter him.  Naturally, both the Carpmeister’s were passed out from the sheer stress of everything!

Unexpectedly the exoskeleton man’s voice came into the Mystic Sphere as if by magic. He screamed, “Hey witch bitch I want my old farts back now!” Rebecca replied, “Go screw yourself, you big baby! Ever thought of getting a woman instead of spending decades harassing a married couple like a lonely jealous loser?” He roared back angrily amid intermittent laughter,” HA HA jealous? Screw you! You’re all going to die!” His exoskeleton shot red, green, and blue energy blasts causing the pink sphere to flicker. Rebecca’s nose began to bleed as she attempted to hold its magic in place while heading back into Earth’s atmosphere. She prayed forth to any and all Gods and Goddesses that would heed her call! Magic began to flow into her from all manner of nature deities from around the world who sensed something was seriously wrong and not of this Earth. However all the sudden it was cut off. Exoskeleton boy chuckled and said, “Yeah your pathetic Gods aren’t a match for me! I’m the most powerful son of a bitch who ever lived!” Julia interjected, “Wow! So much power and this is all you have to do with your life? Why not take over the whole planet? Why just harass an old couple? You are beyond bizarre and pathetic to the max!” He screamed back without thinking, “Damn time co….Ah, the hell with you bitch!” Julia took his words and linked it to his mental weakness to get one clear psychic thought from him. He was a time traveler from the extremely distant future and he had to be careful not to alert time cops of his presence here. Clearly, he was worried by what he’d already done at the magic school and how it might alert temporal authorities. The momentary chink in his armor closed and no more visions could be had!

The Battle Of North Pole City

Rebecca couldn’t believe this filthy fiend had the power to block Gods! She made the decision to head toward North Pole City to the most powerful man on Earth the Demi-Angel Santa Claus! Something Mystic Investigations didn’t originally do because we didn’t want to bring havoc to such a place of holy peace. However, no options were left now! She and Julia tried to send Santa a psychic warning message but Exo boy was blocking it! The Christmas Star was overhead as giant glimmering glacial walls came into view in the middle of a huge flat plane of never-ending snow and ice! Rebecca flew down right over the huge Christmas tree in the center of the cobblestone streets of the downtown area. Elves looked up startled as the exoskeleton roared overhead about to catch Rebecca and her passengers. Just down the hill from Claus Manor, she was shot from the skies by energy beams. Everyone hit the ground without any injury due to the Angelic protection spell over Saint Nicholas’s holy city.

The Exo-man landed and laughed loudly, “Oh yeah bitch! It’s over! Turn over my Carpy’s!” Rebecca tried to recite an incantation and shoot a force lightning-like beam at him but she was tapped out of paranormal power! Julia tried to use her telekinesis to launch him away but it simply didn’t work. He shot a green blast at the two women but it seemed to be absorbed mid-air by the North Pole protection spell. Exoskeleton boy seemed frustrated as he muttered, “Crap this in one powerful protection spell. I need more power!” Julia caught another psychic flash and learned his name. She yelled, “Why little Timmy Carpmeister you must be related to this beautiful couple? Why on Earth are you doing this to them?” He yelled back, “Mind your own business! Oh, wait it doesn’t matter because you’re about to die dumb ass!” He shot multiple beams that finally hit both women as the Carpmeisters lie in the shimmering snow still unconscious. Some Elves ran up and demanded he halt his evil intent. He snickered, “Back off you little shrimps!” He shot the Elves and they were knocked out cold!” He was overcoming the protection spell!

Suddenly the scariest echoing voice ever heard roared, “Enough of this mindless violence! How dare you invade my haven of peace!” Timmy replied, “Screw you Santa! I know all about your BS!” He shot several energy beams at Santa as he strained to block them with his hands. Santa exclaimed, “Oh sweet Jesus what in the Jack Frost is this?” Timmy began uncontrollable over the top cackling you’d expect from a mental patient while he screamed, “Die Santa! Die!” He was clearly losing it as the angelic Claus fell to the ground unable to deflect or absorb the insane amounts of energy! Jack Frost teleported in back of Timmy and attacked him but he was literally launched into outer space! At that point, the Sorcerer McTavish, professors, and several students came out of a blazing orange portal from Scotland. The final Battle Of North Pole City had begun!

Santa regained his composure and joined the fray with McTavish and his allies! Timmy shot never-ending energy fire and started up his space warping thing again. Santa attempted to counter it as Rebecca awoke and dragged the Carpmeisters and Julia to safety. Again this crazy exoskeleton was overwhelming our Earths top supernatural beings! Santa began praying to the Archangels of Heaven but his thoughts were inexplicably blocked! Santa then tried to direct the Spirit Of Christmas at Timmy’s heart to figure out what the hell his problem was. What he saw was astounding!

Timmy was Elmer and Gertrude Carpmeisters first born child! They had him out of wedlock when they were teens. Their parents forced them to give Timmy up for adoption. However, on the way to the orphanage, he was abducted by aliens who tortured and brainwashed him to adulthood! Eventually, they took him to the year 2991 with a master plan to have him infiltrate Earths government with the intent to invade and conquer. The plan failed and Timmy was arrested but he managed to escape and steal a high tech exoskeleton that could travel through time. Long before the 30th century, the world of the supernatural had been revealed to the general public. Soon magic and technology were melded into one. The suits paranormal power was beyond all magic known to the 21st century! Timmy blamed his parents for the living hell he suffered throughout his lost childhood. All he cared about was making their entire lives a living hell as well. He thought about preventing his own alien abduction but he was too full of hate and revenge. In addition, time cops and the aliens themselves would probably have reversed the effort!

A More Powerful Magical Technology Enters The Fray

The supernatural team of McTavish and Saint Nicholas were about to meet their magical makers! Timmy kept laughing maniacally and screaming, “Oh yeah I’m going to be the magnificent bastard who killed Santa Claus! Ho ho ho crappy Christmas! And you suck McTavish! You goofy piece of crap!” Everyone was becoming frozen in the space warp while being violently hit by energy beams. Santa reached out psychically and implored Timmy to accept the Christmas Spirit into his very soul. All Santa got back was a shrill scream that gave him a super headache! Santa thought to himself, “This can’t be how it ends? After centuries of building forth the serene magic of Christmas amid overcoming the forces of darkness!” All hope was lost until a flash of white light manifested a woman wearing what looked like a black and teal superhero suit complete with cape.

The woman held her hand forth and halted the Exoskeletons attacks! She declared, “Timmy Carpmeister I am Time Cop Chelle Carpmeister from the year 3242! You are under arrest for crimes against humanity and the illegal altering of the timeline!  Exit your exoskeleton and submit to extradition back to the future!” Timmy was shocked as his exoskeleton was powered down and he was unable to turn it back on. He yelled, “Hey what the hell is this crap! How did you do this?” Chelle replied, “I’m wearing a far more advanced version of your suit! Here let me help you out of yours!” She ripped opened his suit as he began crying like a baby, “This isn’t fair! Noooooooooo!”

Elmer and Gertrude awoke and witnessed the spectacle. Chelle walked over to them with Timmy in glowing gold handcuffs. She then explained to them that Timmy was the son they gave away so long ago. She told them the bizarre tale that resulted in his rise to time travel power. After what they’d already witnessed on this beyond surreal day they believed it. They started to console Timmy and apologize but he lashed out and shouted, “I don’t need your crap excuses! I was never your kid! So help me God I will still find a way to make every day a horror!” Chelle smiled and turned to Timmy while sternly saying, “Actually you’ll get the help you seriously need and end up having a happy life after serving some time in jail! Oh and by the way I’m your daughter. You sent me back to end this madness!” Timmy quickly countered, “Bull!” Chelle chuckled and turned to the Carpmeisters while saying, “It’s nice to finally meet my grandparents!” She hugged them and said the rehabilitated Timmy who sent her to the past would visit them at some point to resolve all the bad blood. Unfortunately, the timeline had been so polluted that nothing could be reversed without unraveling a whole host of other things Timmy had affected. This includes the decades of hell the Carpmeister’s endured at the hands of Timmy!

She bid her grandparents farewell and walked over to Santa and McTavish. Chelle whispered, “My grandparents could really use the Spirit Of Christmas to bring them some much-deserved peace.” Santa nodded and said, “Of Course I vow they will spend the rest of their days in my sainted city without a care in the world. Their horrifying past will fade away into oblivion as if it never happened.” The Sorcerer McTavish said, “Any chance you can leave that exoskeleton behind for us to inspect?” Chelle replied, “Unfortunately no my good sir! Good luck to both of you!” Santa then told Timmy, “I forgive you, my son! Accept the Spirit Of Christmas into your heart to begin your road to peaceful healing.” Timmy was about to say something snotty but he started to feel an odd foreign warmth in his heart. He remained silent as Chelle picked up the exoskeleton in one hand as if it was a bag of feathers and held firmly on to Timmy in the other while they vanished in a flash of bright light to the 33rd century!

Santa spoke with Elmer and Gertrude about living at North Pole City as a reward for their lifelong hardships. They heartily agreed and then they said goodbye to Rebecca and Julia. The two women conferred with Santa and McTavish about the disturbing revelation that technology would someday trump magic! McTavish then got a determined look on his face as he declared, “Now we know what shall come to pass! We can prepare for it! Am I the only one who got the impression those suits are used to suppress magical individuals in the future?” Santa replied, “I did Ian! I think my Elves and I along with your fabulous alumni can come up with a solution!” Everyone smiled and nodded as the non-North pole gang stepped into the orange glowing portal and returned to the magic school in Scotland to begin the rebuilding process. In fact, it was completed just in time for the Halloween celebrations!

Elmer and Gertrude Carpmeister now live perpetually at Santa’s winter wonderland where nobody ever dies. As long as they never leave they are immortal. Their rehabilitated son Timmy visited them from the future and all was forgiven. This included a direct blessing from Saint Nicholas complete with penance. Timmy continues to return every so often along with his daughter Chelle. Mystic Investigations sees the Carpmeisters as well every year when they visit North Pole City at Christmas. Ah yes another fine happy ending for all!


The Dog Man And The Gypsy

On National Dog Day some of the Mystic Investigations team volunteered at the local dog shelter. While there our Demi-Mermaid Witch Rebecca Abernathy sensed one dog wasn’t quite right. Her Zoopathic animal communication powers told her a Black Labrador Retriever had a human mind! Our Psychic Julia Hathaway walked in and said the same thing! They communicated with the man dog and he telepathically said a Gypsy turned him into a dog after he accidentally hit her dog with a car. They kidnapped him right out of the vehicle and held him for a week until their transmutation ritual was complete. Indeed this was the man reported missing a week ago. His name is Pepe Hernandez.

We officially adopted the dog and brought him to Rebecca’s witches lair in the sub-basement of Mystic Investigations headquarters. In concert with our Cryptozoologist Dr. Ashley Abercrombie we attempted to return Pepe to human form. Things might have been a lot easier if his consciousness was simply transferred to a dog and his body was still intact. Unfortunately, it was a complete transformation that requires deeply dark powerful magic of a complicated sort. It was also intertwined with a curse making things even worse. Rebecca simply couldn’t reverse the curse-ridden spell! Dr. Abercrombie looked into using an experimental shape-shifting formula but we risked turning the man into a pile of biological goo!

We visited the Gypsy at her local encampment on the edge of the Enchanted Woodland. Her name was Vadoma and she was the leader of the gypsies who had only arrived in town three weeks ago. We respectfully reasoned with her to change Pepe back. I also asked why she didn’t bring the dog back to life if she had such power. She angrily refused to turn the man back and then admitted she did resurrect the dog! Vadoma stubbornly exclaimed,”Nobody screws with the Gypsies! He shall remain a canine for the remainder of his dog life!” Clearly, that would be less than a decade!

Rebecca started to get mad! I could see her enchanted eyes beginning to glow green with powerful witchcraft magic. However, I knew messing with Gypsies, in general, was a really bad idea and these particular ones seemed to have immense power! I calmed her down and we left empty handed. While the rest of the team walked away I apologized to the Gypsy for agitating her as I wasn’t interested in her cursing us! I implored her one last time to perhaps change Pepe back in a year or two. She roared,”No! He made my precious dog Timbo suffer! Mr.Hernandez will die like the dog that he is!” I lowered my head in silent respect as I bid her farewell. Now the man-dog named Pepe is our new watchdog until we can cure him! Hopefully, these Gypsies won’t cause any more trouble or we will be forced to deal with them the hard way!


Magic Scottish School Mystery

McTavish Magic SchoolMystic Investigations has been chosen by Ian McTavish, one of the greatest Sorcerers on Earth, to investigate a series of unfortunate events at the prestigious McTavish International Academy Of Magical Sciences. The amazing academy is Rebecca Abernathy’s alma mater, and it’s magically cloaked on the shores of Loch Ness in the highlands of Scotland. The Headmaster McTavish doesn’t know who to trust anymore, and he judged Rebecca to be a good soul. Since we’re gaining a global reputation in paranormal investigations Ian decided our team might be able to get to the bottom of things. We took Duanna Sargon’s private jet. Before take off Drake Alexander’s vampire stalker, Elamia, hopped on to the wing as we were taking off, and punched a hole through the window. Duanna punched her in the face causing her to launch into a pond at the end of the tarmac. She vowed vengeance as she wallowed in the scum ridden waters. Once in the air many of us had fun while others fell asleep.

Once in Scotland we were welcomed as guests by one of Duanna’s vampire sons, Lord Cornwell. He had a huge castle in the picturesque Scottish countryside. Cornwell seemed like a stick in mud, and was very formal in all that he said, and did. He also insisted on being called Lord Cornwell or Sir Cornwell. Duanna seemed to gain joy by calling him Corny which made him cringe. Drake was eager to look for the home he grew up in as a child in 13th century Scotland. He thought it would be difficult with centuries of changing landscape but thanks to help from our psychic Julia Hathaway, Rebecca Abernathy;s magic, and his vampire mother Duanna we found the site of his home. The home used to sit at the foot of a Feudal Estate where his father was a serf. Now the entire area was woodland with only some random stones from the old manor. There was nothing left of Drake’s home. However he began digging into the Earth until it gave way beneath him, and he fell into a deep hole lined with stones. Drake said his father built a hiding place beneath their home to hide from the Feudal Lord McAllister’s drunken fits. He would get tanked up every so often, and go around declaring himself God over everyone. As Drake cleared the dirt from the walls we could see drawings he, his father, and mom had made. Drake then removed a stone to reveal a nearly rotted wood box. Inside was what he called the Amulet Of Andrew. Andrew being the patron saint of Scotland. His mother had given it to him for protection as a small child. Unfortunately when he tried to hold it in his hand it burned due to his demonic vampire DNA. I took it for him instead. Drake decided he was going to look into buying this land, and building a vacation home here.

The next day we all went to McTavish International Academy Of Magical Sciences. We walked to the shore of Loch Ness on a partly cloudy day in the upper 30’s with some fog rolling off the water. Our Cryptozoologist Ashley Abercrombie took our a special whistle to call forth the great Loch Ness Monster which none of us except Rebecca had seen before since he’s the magic schools mascot. Like many students she had the unique experience of riding around on the friendly Nessie. The great dinosaur like beast rose his head from the water, and let out an other worldly bellow as Rebecca yelled,”Nessie over here! It’s me Rebecca!” His bellows sounded like a laugh of sorts as he swam toward us like a flash of lightening. He came slightly on shore with his long front flippers sticking out, and his long giraffe like neck bowing down to kiss Rebecca. She giggled, and said,”Awww I missed you to Nessie!” Rebecca said she was going to ride Nessie into the school which was invisibly cloaked to everyone except those who have attended. So she was the only one who could see the buildings, and grounds further down the shore. She told us to walk in that direction, and wait for the academy to appear. Rebecca wanted me to join her but I wasn’t too keen on hitching a ride aboard the Loch Ness Monster. Although Zack Powers was more than happy to experience the magic of riding aloft a paranormal prehistoric aquatic beast. So they whooshed away on Nessie while the rest of us took in the sights of the Scottish countryside. After walking for a time Drake, and Duanna suddenly slammed into something invisible that nearly caused them to fall over. The rest of us had no issues walking further ahead while they stood there puzzled. Suddenly a stone building formed around us with Drake, and Duanna on the outside. We turned around to find a medieval looking castle with students bustling about. Rebecca, and a tall commanding figure of at least 6′ 5″ in height wearing a green velvet cape. He had emerald green eyes that almost seemed to glow with power, and nearly shoulder length hair that was crimson in color. In a booming John Tesh kind of voice he greeted us,”Welcome my friends from Mystic Investigations! I’m Ian McTavish!” Rebecca kept looking at him in this smitten kind of way as she had her arm around his. I think I was a bit jealous…LOL.

We all introduced ourselves. Ian was the kind of guy to give up all overbearing hand shakes that were borderline painful while gently kissing all the ladies hands. Our teenage bionic boy wonder Zack said later that he bent one of his steel fingers. Luckily nanobots repaired it instantly. Apparently Ian only decreases his hand shake grip if you grimace slightly. I inquired about why Duanna, and Drake could not enter. Rebecca then said she forgot about vampires not being allowed in the Academy. She knew both of them so well that she never thinks of them as vampires. Ian knew of their work in the fight against evil, and he waved his hand causing a portion of the wall to become invisible again. Duanna, and Drake were still standing there looking quite annoyed as Ian declared,”Enter my friends! Welcome to the McTavish International Academy Of Magical Sciences!” Ian took Duanna’s hand, and kissed it. He then said,”My what a strikingly beautiful vampiress you are. Sorry I don’t swing that way my dear.” He then let out a roar of a laugh. I assume he meant he wasn’t into vampire love interests. Duanna gave him a cross look. She only continued to tag along with us because it was a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the academy. Ian then said,”Ah yes Drake always good to meet a fellow Scotsman!” As he shook Drakes hand I heard a bone crack as Drake winced. Ian then replied,”Oh sorry my friend! Sometimes I don’t know my own strength!” He then chuckled a bit. My first impression of this guy was that of a blowhard with a huge ego but he has been a powerful force of good in the world so I suppose he had every right to act like a big shot. He was sure a hell of lot better than that rigid Sir Corny. He motioned for us to gather around him closely, and lowered his voice when he said,”There’s been a lot of unusual, and unfortunate incidents around our once peaceful Academy. I don’t know who to fully trust so as we travel about these hallowed halls I will introduce you as professors, and colleagues. The youngling will be a student naturally.” Zack frowned a bit as Ian slapped him on his bionic arm. It nearly caused him to fall over. This McTavish was one strong bastard physically, and magically!

He took us on a brief tour of the large magic school consisting of a huge grey stoned castle in the middle of the grounds right on the shore of Loch Ness, and several other medieval looking structures around it with plenty of field, and forest landscape in between. There was a huge moat around the entire estate that emptied or was supplied by Loch Ness at two points. The water moved in an odd manner. I couldn’t really tell which way it was going. In the center of the mystical grounds was a huge water fountain with gold, and silver coins thrown in it for good luck, and wishes. Various paranormal animals trotted about including a gaggle of rainbow glittering peacocks strutting to, and fro. Every so often they would fly a few feet in the air leaving a trail of glittering dust behind which would take several minutes to settle to the ground. The most spectacular was a bright white Unicorn that came up to us leaving a trail of iridescent sparkled behind it. She was supposedly one of the only trained Unicorns on Earth since they are notoriously shy, and cautious creatures. The Unicorns mystical rainbow colored eyes with intermittent shimmering was quite mesmerizing. We all petted her silky soft coat as Drake said,”This isn’t the Unicorn I saved coming back to grant me a wish is it?” Ian replied,”Not likely Drake! This fine creature has never left these grounds in decades! Tell us of your life saving tale!” Drake doesn’t like to brag but he reluctantly replied,”Well in October of 2010 I saved a Unicorn from a Werewolf attack in Woodland Springs.” McTavish then replied,”You magnificent bastard!” as he patted Drake on the back with such force that he nearly fell over. He then countered,”I saved this lovely lass when she was just a little foal….from a pack of 13 Werewolves under the spell of a trio of Wizards but whose counting huh Drake old man!” He forcefully slapped Drake in the back again, and Drake replied,”Damn Ian!” Drake then slapped Ian super hard on his back causing him to bend over a bit. Both men started laughing as Ian said,”Damn Alexander you really pack a wallop!” Then we all started laughing at what I have no idea. This caused the Unicorn to bolt away, and then we all abruptly stopped.

All the professors, staff, and students seem nice for the most part but one professor in particular gave me the creeps. He was a sinister looking man with frazzled black hair, and cold coal black blood shot eyes who wore a dark purple robe, and a glittering gold vest underneath it. He muttering something as he gave us all cold stares. McTavish yelled at him as he walked away,”Professor Velnias please don’t spend so much time talking to us. You’re chewing our ears off man!” We all started laughing, and he said,”Velnias is a bastard but he’s a damn fine professor of Necromancy!” Once in Headmaster McTavish’s office, and home, which was a small castle on a hill overlooking the entire school, he gave us our assignments so we could blend in, and investigate various incidents which includes zombies, werewolves, and all manner of evil creatures somehow infiltrating the school. Some students, and professors having such horrific nightmares that they woke up with wounds. Usually within the wall of this hallowed institution everyone has sweet vivid dreams due to a magic dream spell. There have also been numerous menacing apparitions appearing despite powerful protection spells in place. In addition there have been various acts of sabotage that have caused some injuries. Thankfully nobody has died yet. Again Ian many centuries ago personally put powerful protection spells to prevent injury, and death. There has never been an issue until now. He didn’t want to admit it but he was clearly shaken that something was undermining his almighty authority, and magical powers of sorcery. So we headed off to get to the bottom of things. Unfortunately as I began to leave the office I turn around, and see Ian hugging Rebecca while kissing her on the cheek. Man this guy really thinks he’s something doesn’t he?
