018 Joker

Phineas watched cautiously until he was sure Necrolai was gone before sticking his head into Koragg’s chamber. “Ok, she’s gone.”

“Thank you,” Udonna murmured.

“You’re welcome. She scares me.”

“Yes, she is formidable,” Udonna agreed.

Phineas struck a pose. “Still, Koragg said no one was to disturb you, and no one will!”

Udonna studied him for a moment. “You are a troll, are you not?”

“Troblin,” Phineas corrected her cheerfully. “Half troll, half goblin.”

“Troblin,” Udonna repeated slowly. “And yet your loyalty is to Koragg?”

“He’s not such a bad guy. Honour and loyalty, all that stuff.” Udonna nodded slowly and he added, much more seriously, “He won’t hurt you. He won’t let anyone else hurt you. You’re safe here.”

“Thank you,” she said again.

Phineas grinned, cheering up. “I could sing for you if you’d like.”

“Oh. How…kind.”

“Oooh…on the other hand, that might irritate Necrolai. And she’s no fun in a good mood.”

“Yes, that’s true.”

“She’s very easy to annoy,” he whispered conspiratorially.

“It’s a characteristic of vampires,” Udonna agreed. “Especially the queens. Phineas, what’s happening in the town?”

“The humans? Death, destruction, the war all over again. The Master rising.” Phineas shrugged. “Nothing we can do.”

I love how you answered my question from the previous chapter. Man, I could hear his theme music while reading this. <3

This is some nice Phineas-Udonna interaction too. Thank god she's got one person she can view as a friend down there.

Re: Phineas!!
I'm basing my Phineas on the ep where he, Clare and LeeLee break into the Underworld to save Udonna, and he kicks ass. There's bits of the joker in there to, but he's had to step up, and he's doing it really well.

Everyone always seemed to just tolerate Phineas in the show. He was closer to Nick than anyone, and even he always had the air of 'Oh, it's you, what're you doing here? Stop doing it and go away.' But he saved Nick's life. He was the best non-ranger support they had.

Ahem. :: Gets off soap box :: Sorry.

Re: Phineas!!
He's kicked ass on many occasions. Like when he saved Xander, Maddie and Chip from the giant spider. Or when he rescued/finished raising Fireheart. And in Dark Wish, he really does partner up with Koragg, so this really, really works.

I dunno, I think Xander appreciated him fairly well. He was willing to claim Phineas as an uncle to get him hired at the Rock Porium. I forget though, did anyone ever know that Phineas saved baby Nick? *tries to remember*

Re: Phineas!!
Udonna and Daggeron did. phineas confessed to them a little while after Daggeron arrived, as I recall.

(There's no Daggeron in this fic, by the way...couldn't think of a reason to get the teens to the cave, and also it'd make too many villans if Imperious broke out.)

I agree Xander was friendly enough with him. I stand corrected on that point!

Re: Phineas!!
Yeah, now that you mention it, I remember that too. Though it explains the other's reactions a bit better. All they know of Phineas is that he's a really strange Troblin who can come up with even more random stuff than Chip.

(That makes sense. Even if I'll miss Daggeron, the fact that he's a frog stuck in a cave doesn't give him a lot of options for riding to the rescue.)

It helps that Xander's friendly with just about everyone. Though I think the fact that Phineas was keeping Xander company when he was turning into a tree probably helped too.
