Indream's face accidentally rips a hole in the fabric on the universe, thus causing the planet to implode. Luckily everyone respawns on their airship in space, thus making Guns of Icarus: Space Blimps to be created.


At this time, Jacob is on mars at this time trying to make Curiosity into a Zeppelin. Suddenly, he detects their is something wrong with his game. He pulls out his GoIPhone 7 and checks Blimpbook, where it seems EA has bought Muse and has made a crappy sequel that makes no sense even by Muse standards. It also bills you 1 cent every time your balloon component pumps SpaceAirshipsAir™ into your EA-prepared-Space-Digital-Balloon™. Seeing this, Jacob quickly locates a gas station and asks for directions to the nearest red button. After finally digging through Mount Marsmore, he pulls up a Red button, and pushes it, to revert time before Indream ripped time and space apart, the jerk.

The repeated world resets have counter-intuitively caused the world to lose stability, creating a dark, toxic version of itself in a parallel dimension (think Light Aether and Dark Aether from Metroid Prime 2: Echoes). Multiple red buttons have appeared, both dark and light. They remain unpressed.

Because of Koali's cold, hard nerves of steel and determination not to press the red buttons, the following happens.

Time, space and existence itself begins to phase out and travel in all sorts of directions at all sorts of speed. Everything travels away from everything, simultaneously. Light is dark, dark is light, late is early, early is late, and only one single thing remains stationary. It is the original button. The button that started it all. But does it have the same consequences? What sense is driving us to be so sure that it is the original button? no one knows. The only clue we have is the small label, "Original button." Whatever it means, this is definitely the original button. Could it be the one thing to set the universe back in its place? Surely it must be. This button is here and remains for a reason. Press it, darn it, press it!

From out of the ever-expanding mess of whipping winds and increasing entropy, Koali soars toward the Original Button. He knows it is close, he can feel it. He reaches out to touch the big button but feels nothing solid. The Button is a cloud of smoke and Koali has disturbed it. It distorts and dissipates away into the whirling storm of expanding space.
Shrouded by the now drifting cloud, a small box reveals itself. The pink puffball reaches out to grab the box and opens it to see what is inside this strangely decorated storage device. Inside, there is a small fragment of a Red Button, probably about a fifth of a whole one. Pushing this alone probably would be ineffective; the rest of the button must be found.

Through the mist and storm, a sound can be heard, or more an absence of sound - a quiet approaches. The dust settles, falling from a new 'above' towards a new 'down' as stability struggles to take hold and the 'world' vies to make sense of itself. Jacob was no fool; he had programmed a system into the core code of the Universe to prevent prime focal points of the story being utterly destroyed. As the main (so far only) planet to be explicitly involved in the plot, the hunk of rock that once harboured all life as we know it could not be easily scoured from existence.

Koali finds himself next to Indreams and Shadak as the clouds clear. They are standing on a small outcropping that has miraculously weathered the storm. Below them, a long drop presents itself and a great dusty plane littered with wreckage and the confused cries of survivors. The world needs to be rebuilt.

The Button needs to be found.

Jacob gets a salute for storytelling and plot twist.

-----

The button cannot simply be found on its home thread. There are four more pieces scattered throughout the land. Cantina. Pit. Gameplay. Feedback & Suggestions. Find the fragments and reassemble the Button to repair the world. You have 72 hours.

lol jk

Koali, Indreams, and Shadak look at each other, puzzled about what to do.

Koali, hoping for a convenient solution, tries to find the button fragments by looking in his stomach. Unfortunately, convenience and plot rarely mix in a good story, and the fragments aren't there.

*snip*

*Slurps up some noodles in preparation for story time.*

In eating the noodles, Koali takes on the properties of Ramen. He is incredibly edible and requires only to be added to hot water to be delicious. The crazed and hungry survivors notice the big ball of yumminess and race towards it, fighting each other off with elbows and pushes. As the horde rush at Koali and his companions, they attempt to hatch a plan. They need to find a way down before a berserk local succeeds in reaching them and eating the puffball whole.

Lying around them are: The balloon canvas from Shadak's Pyramidion, one of Indreams' many unicorn horns, some roast Cantaloupe and Jacob's GameBoy (Koali stole it) - along with numerous fragments of broken planks and bits of what was probably once a water pump.

Unfortunately though, a rogue Kerbiphobic sees the crew making an airship, and decides this is his chance to escape Koali. He quickly jumps on the ship, blows all the air in his lungs into the balloon, and kicks away everything from the craft but a small unicorn horn platform, and floats away. Unfortunately his Hot Air Lung Fuel quickly dissipates, and he is forced to land. He accidentally lands on top of Kaoli, and, realizing his vessel is contaminated, runs away. The Horde didn't see Koali get crushed, and continue running past the grounded ship.

Luckily Koali is able to dig his way out with a bit of Roast Cantaloupe that fell out of the platform.

This thread gets out of hand, very frequently.

Anyways, Indreams crushes his unicorn horns into magic powders.

I'm pretty sure 72 hours have passed since the Red Button was destroyed.
Indreams uses his unicorn magic to recreate the Red Button with his unicorn horn powders.

Indreams presses the Button, screaming YOLO!

Everybody stops what they're doing and turns to look at Indreams, hunched over a small item. In unison they all slowly trudge towards him and crowd around. One brave boy steps out from the crowd and walks up to Indreams, hope flickering across his dirty face....

.........

Nothing.

........

The crowd are sobbing as dramatic string music plays through an indeterminable source, as if it's emanating from everywhere and nowhere at the same time. A bolt of lightning strikes the button, destroying it utterly as the music becomes yet more tense. An organ starts playing and Koali raises his fist to the sky, shaking it and yelling into the dark, overcast atmosphere. More lightning hits the nearby area as the music diminishes slightly. Only the true Red Button will work - not some inferior creation. In the knowledge that only two remain in existence, Koali rallies the gathering of humans and other creatures. They must find the pieces of the Button together in order to restore the world they once knew and loved. It would take days, months maybe years but they MUST correct what has been done wrong.

Or they could borrow Jacob's button. He seems nice.

After reading the plotline, David pops into the story because plot devices. In his radical Hindenburg II, he quickly flies to the crash location of all the other important characters who are probably useless but we like them anyway. Unfortunately, 7 lighting bolts strike his awesome ship of massive proportions and radness and it lights aflame. Quickly, David leaps out of the control cabin and lands on Koali to survive the fall. He then joins Indreams shaking his fist at the sky yelling "WWWWWWWWHHHHHHHYYYYYYYY!?"

In the sky above, a shimmering hole poofs out of nowhere. Inside can be seen a projection of Jacob's office; he sits, staring down at the creatures.

"What? You lost the Button?"

The glistening projection fades and the clouds behind it are seen to continue to roll through the air.
