Thank you Regz46. Yeah, I'm not so sure about future stories, as much as I loved writing this one. The thing was, this was something I had been really inspired to write. The character really touched me and the idea to write her diary had been one that was floating around in my head before I finally allowed it to form on paper (my tree-free, banana-paper, to be exact :lol: ). So really, I'm not the creative-writing type. This was like an accident gone right, if you will. :wink:

Note: I've gone back and fixed some typos, missing words, etc.

Sorry about the double post, but I need this to be seen:

Expect another story from me soon, guys! It's comedic and Halloween-themed, so keep an eye out for it this month. . . It's gonna be great, I'm laughing just thinking about it.

Thanks, Mitch!

Everyone,
Here's a little hint about what its going to be:
4 genres that this story fits into - horror, comedy, parody, crossover.

Rated "almost PG" for suggested mild comedic violence -- nothing graphic whatsoever.

DUN DUN DUN DAUAUUAUAUAUN! *fanfare*
Here it is! I am so excited to share it!
Thanks Mitch and PixarVixen for approving it!

First, some notes:
+The thing about it is it's a parody. Colette is completely out of character and does some uncharacteristic stuff. It's just funny. It is not meant to be taken seriously, it's just for fun. A totally random idea concocted at 11:17 pm during a night's session of brainstorming by me and my sister, Ashley -- which turned into something wacky, an inside joke if you will. Slightly Halloween-themed, and a crossover of Ratatouille and The Incredibles.
+And here is an overview!:
Colette is Helen's cousin. She is asked to babysit, and has a hard time getting the kids to eat her cooking. When Dash mentions that Violet would eat "tonyloaf", Colette takes it a little to literally. Call it culture-shock or something...
+::A WARNING:: It has a small suggestion of violence, but has nothing graphic. So rated PG. Also, don't read it if you haven't seen either Ratatouille or The Incredibles, as it may have spoilers. Sort of. Not really, but just if you want to be really safe.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Colette Cooks Tonyloaf
The phone rang.
"Allo?"
"Colette, hi, it's me, Helen."
"Ah, Helene! How are you? Long time no talk, non?"
"Yeah, I'm great! How's my favorite cousin?
"Helene, I am your only cousin."
"Well, all the same. Listen, Bob and I are going on vacation to Bermuda for our anniversary for a few days and we need somebody to watch the kids."
"Yes. One problem. I am living in Paris, France. You are in America. Besides, I'm busy! I have my restaurant, and a new boyfriend, and --"
"Did I mention we got you round trip tickets in first class?"
"I'll be there!"

Colette packed her bags and flew over. Helen met her and drove her to the house.
"Emergency phone numbers are all right here. Dash needs to be in bed no later than 9:30 so he can be at school at 8:30 in the morning, same with Violet, only you don't really have to worry about her, she takes care of herself. As for Jack-Jack--"
"Where is ze kitchen"
Helen led Colette into the kitchen. "What do zhe children eat?"
"Oh, they'll eat anything kid-friendly really. I've got leftovers in the fridge that you can heat up. Gotta go, or we'll miss our flight, take care, bye!" Helen said, hastily.
"Leftovers? I don't think so..."

First night:
"Violette, Dash!" Colette called from the kitchen, "Your dinner!"
Once they were seated at the table and Jack-Jack in his highchair, Colette served them "ratatouille. Bon appetit!" Dash ate some before soon announcing "Full!" and racing away. Violet only moved her food around her plate.
"These American children are so picky!" Colette thought, "Everyone in Paris loves le ratatouille!" She decided to try to make their food more 'kid-friendly.'

Next evening:
"Escargot a la mode and champagne. Bon appetit!"
Dash and Violet gaped at her, open-mouthed. Colette didn't understand kids.
Dash shovelled down his ice cream while Violet stared at her plate.
"What is ze matter? You 'ave 'ardly touched your dinner."
"I'm not hungry for escargot."
"Well," Colette offered, "It is leftover night. I have ratatouille, sweet bread.. What are you hungry for?"
"Tony Rydinger!" Dash taunted.
"Shut up!" Violet retorted.
"I bet you'd eat if we were having Tonyloaf!" Dash persisted in a sing-song voice.
"Tonyloaf?" questioned Colette.
"AAAH I hate my life!" Violet cried as she ran into her room.
Jack-Jack giggled.
"What is tonyloaf?" asked Colette, determined to make something the children would eat.
"Tony Rydinger is this guy she likes, and everyday, she waits after school just to watch him walk by." Dash said, giggling.
"Tony Rydinger..." Colette mused.

Next day:
It was near time to pick up Dash and Violet from school. Colette arrived a few minutes early with a portable ice chest. And baggies. She leaned up against a wall, resting one foot upon it, arms folded across her chest, and sunglasses perched on her nose. Dash had told her that Tony Rydinger was always the first kid out of school, so he was not difficult to find -- "Well, well, well. Look what the cat dragged in...
Are you Tony Rydinger?"
"Er, yeah."
Colette pulled him aside. "Stand still," she ordered as she whipped out a pair of meat-cleavers.

That evening:
"Children! Your dinner!"
Colette served them their plates which they both enjoyed immensely.
"Mmm, this is great! It tastes good! What is it?"
Colette was very pleased. "It's tonyloaf!"

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well, there it is! I hope you liked it. Please review!
Sheila

o_0;; Nooooo! What did you do to my Tonykins?!

Hahaha. :P Despite Tony’s doom, I enjoyed your story immensely, but alas, I will never look at Colette the same ever again. Heheh.

Perfect Halloween story. ;)

Yay! PV approved it! :mrgreen:

This is exactly the sort of thing that my sister and I would concoct up. I love it. Hilarious story, dude. (I also love how you made Colette Helen's cousin. I kinda see how that could work. Heheh.) :lol: ;)

Well, Mitch, I thought I'd wait a week to see the dvd (to refresh my memory of some stuff) and then go from there. Have you ever watched a movie and got a brilliant fan-fic or fan-art idea, but the next day you forgot it? That happens to me a lot. So I'll try to jot those down and see what they come to.

Now. I had started another one of Colette's diary entries a long time ago. [spoil]The part where she leaves Linguini, but comes back after seeing the book.[/spoil] Just her inner thoughts on that. But the story's structure was kind of confused. It went from being narrated by an outsider, to a diary entry, back to narration... A big mess. So I've been giving that a break to work itself out. I like to start things and come back to them way later. It always seems to help. Well, not for things like schoolwork, but you get it.

So until the dvd! (1 week!!!)

P.S. By the way, when can we stop doing the spoiler tags??? I mean, eventually everyone here (assuming they are fans :wink: ) will have seen Ratatouille, no?

Colette LInguini/Sheila - Interesting! I like the idea of an outsider/passery-by commenting on that moment in the film; it would make for a unique and intriguing read. I say go for it, but it's ultimately up to you!

Colette Linguini wrote:Have you ever watched a movie and got a brilliant fan-fic or fan-art idea, but the next day you forgot it?


Mmm. I've experience something similar, that being those times when I'll hear a piece of classical/jazz music (ie., Beethoven, Vivaldi, etc...) and will randomly concoct up a short story using the score as a base, only to forget what I thought up later on (which is why I write the name of the musical tidbit down so that I won't forget it -- heheh).

So yeah. I kinda know the feeling. ;)

And yep: Just one week until the DVD!! I'm surprised I haven't wet my pants from the excitement yet. :P

-- Mitch

P.S. I've been pondering the whole "spoiler tag" situation, as well. I suppose I could ask my fellow moderators whether or not we should all stop using them. Yes, I think I'll do that. ;)
