Put away your Shakespeare, the Atlantis High Encyclopedia was to be THE hallmark of literature, the greatest reference for human and alienkind in studying Atlantis High’s wacky community. As it happened, only a few subjects were covered before the scholar conducting research for the encyclopedia was persuaded by Coach Shane it was more important to work on perfecting their physical image than adding further topics. So here we have it, incomplete and brief though it may be – the A to NZ Encyclopaedia of Atlantis High…
Shiny Round Things…
Round things surround us and few people ever notice. They are just a part of our everyday lives. But local Sunset Cove resident Beanie Weanie has developed a real fascination for anything that is round, especially if it is shiny.
Beanie has been totally fixated with showerheads and has spent hours sketching them. He could have got in to serious trouble through his spying as he was actually looking in to the girls shower room at Atlantis High!
Beanie has been known to run away at speed with Frisbees, hubcaps, cymbals, satellite dishes, hats, plates and cheeseburgers. There is no stopping Beanie when he gets locked on to something and his obsession with all things round can escalate out of control quite rapidly.
Beanie was actually close to arrest at one stage due to his theft of a hubcap from a police car in Sunset Cove. Luckily his pal Giles Gordon was there to take the rap and Beanie was left free to continue in his quest for round things.
The Missing Radiation Bomb…
A military mishap? Or the work of an evil force lurking in Sunset Cove? An alien device, planted by some green lizardy creature? A plot by Sabrina to get rid of her arch enemy Octavia Vermint once and for all?
Episode one saw a near disaster averted at the last possible second when Giles Gordon managed to unactivate the missing radiation bomb.
News first hit over the local radio that the radiation bomb was missing, stolen by a psychotic Jet Marigold whilst on a fruit eating binge. Giles managed to track it down before local superhero Silver Lining could after following the trail of fresh fruit peels left by Jet. Giles located the bomb at Atlantis High school but what about the detonator?
The lovely Octavia Vermont gave Giles some vital information in the ladies powder room and provided the necessary pantasodium triphoshate. This was the additive that Jet demanded in exchange for the detonation device. Giles then needed to find the key to the detonator and discovered it with Octavia’s help in a crate full of illegal underwear.
The day was saved – hip hip hooray – but still, where the bomb came from originally, nobody really knows. Where it was intended to end up nobody really knows. What it was intended for in the peaceful town of Sunset Cove, nobody really knows. And how Jet managed to steal it, nobody really knows. It is just one of the many Atlantis High mysteries…
Fluffy Pink G-Strings….
This infamous article first reared its fluffy head in episode one of Atlantis High when Sabrina dropped it in to new boy Giles Gordon’s school bag.
Sophie May discovered it in the midst of a science lecture and Giles’ head was sent spinning. He had no idea as to how the offending article got in to his bag. Of course it was common knowledge that any underwear produced by child labour in politically unsound countries was banned from Atlantis High at that time and the g-string caused a huge outcry in the classroom. Giles was thoroughly humiliated by the discovery that he was unknowingly harbouring such an item.
Giles soon found out why the pink problem had turned up in his bag. Octavia Vermont informed him that the fluffy frippery was actually destined for her own bag. It seemed that Sabrina had major jealousy issues to contend with and had been mistaken Giles’ bag for Octavia’s.
The fluffy pink g-string has since made several cameo appearances, as worn by the local crime fighter and overall superhero extraordinaire, Silver Lining.
Silver Lining has a penchant for super tight, super pink items of a superhero nature and poses with obvious joy. The pink fluffy version is sometimes swapped for a black Lycra one but it seems that the original is the great favourite of our sexy Silver Lining.
The g-string has turned up more than once in various strange places throughout Atlantis High and could be considered to be something of a good luck charm for Giles. Apart from it forming part of Giles’ first conversation with the lovely Octavia, another example of the fluffy ones appearance is the time it turned up on the hook of his school locker. This actually led him to the discovery of the secret passage behind his locker, which in turn gave him an eyeful of the lovely Octavia and introduced him to his big – eared new school pal, Beanie Weanie.
The g-string has been lucky for Giles. Will it have the same effect on other Sunset Cove residents? Will Silver Lining continue to wear it with pride? We will have to wait and watch and wonder…
THE SILVER LINING ANSWERPHONE…
The greatest superhero of Sunset Cove, the Silver Lining is usually a very busy person. He has found recently that his phone has been ringing off the hook with requests for help.
Little old ladies phone the pink one to enlist his aid in saving cats that are stuck up trees, to unblock toilets and to frighten away bad tempered bees.
Silver Lining has started to become a little tired of helping out in this kind of way. After all, not many superheroes have to get involved in the mundane chores of daily life.
Silver Lining decided therefore to make some pamphlets advertising his superhero abilities and envisaged being inundated with pleas for help from beautiful damsels in distress.
So far the light that would flash to indicate new messages has remained unlit.
Silver Lining has been sitting at home twiddling his thumbs and re-recording his message to pass the time, dreaming of all the daring deeds he could be performing if only his phone would ring!
