Squidkid Shorts: A Fanfic-Spinoff Webseries by GeekyGamerZack

on April 15th 2018, 7:55 pm
Hi all, and welcome to Squidkid Shorts, a spinoff of my Splatoon 2 fanfic in the style of the popular Crystals of Silveria Super-Shorts. (Great...they probably think I'm just rehashing the same concepts all over again...)

In this mostly-kind-of-semi-canon-ish collection of squeird and squonderful tales, we see stories focused on many of the characters you know and love, from Squilma to Squika, Inklinda to Inklein, and everyone in-between. (Well, except the protagonists, who have, like, MORE than enough spotlight in their respective series or whatever...)

So, without further ado, I present the first Squidkid Short, A Hard Cray's Knight. Enjoy! (Or don't. I can't dictate what you do and don't like, can I?)

***
Squilma Shorts: A Hard Cray's Knight
AKA "The "I thought these were called SQUIDKID Shorts" Mini-Episode"

Spoiler:
Scene 1: Ammo Knights: Morning

Squilma stands in Ammo Knights. Sheldon is speaking to her.

Sheldon: ...and so I'm now stocking Brellas for your convenience, Age-

Inklinda walks in.

Inklinda: Good morning, all!

Squilma groans.

Squilma: It WAS good...until about five seconds ago.

Inklinda: Sheldon giving another of his boring speeches?

Sheldon: Boring...?

Squilma: Inklinda, Sheldon is standing RIGHT THERE!

Inklinda: M-hm...like I care. So what are you, like, doing here, anyway?

Squilma: I thought you said you didn't care.

Inklinda: Oh, I don't. Now spill me the deets!

Sheldon is delighted.

Sheldon: Well, I was just about to sell Squilma one of my excellent, top-of-the-range Brellas!

Inklinda laughs.

Inklinda: A BRELLA?! Are you totes cray?

Squilma: No, I'm SQUILMA Cray!

Inklinda: Like...what?

Squilma: That's my name: Squilma Cray.

Inklinda: Oh. Um...that's nice...

Inklinda's thoughts: Yes! I, like, have a way to tease her 'til I'm bored or whatever!

Inklinda: Well then, have fun with your new toy. Later!

Inklinda leaves the shop. Squilma shouts at the door.

Squilma: I'm not buying a stupid Brella!

Sheldon: But I already charged your cred-ink card!

Squilma stares at Sheldon.

Squilma: You did WHAT?!

Sheldon grins.

Sheldon: You are a Brella MASTER, Squilma! Show that Inklinda who's boss!

Squilma frowns and grins.

Squilma: Yeah! I'll show HER!

Scene 2: Shellendorf Institute: Afternoon

Inklinda, who has neon pink ink and tentacles, stands in a secluded area. She holds a tentacle in front of her face for a few seconds, then lets go of it, letting it flop to the side of her face.

Inklinda: Ugh, this colour makes me look just like Squilma...

Squilma, who has neon green tentacles and ink, spots Inklinda by herself.

Squilma: Perfect...while Inklinda's distracted, I'll sneak up behind her and open my Brella. Not even her Inkbrush can stop me!

Inklinda stares over the edge.

Inklinda: I'd hate it if someone, like, backed me over this platform or whatever.

Squilma lands behind Inklinda.

Squilma: SNEAK ATTAAAAACK!

Inklinda: Huh?

Squilma opens her Brella and attempts to push Inklinda over the edge.

Squilma: There is no escape! AHAHAHAHAAH!

The shield portion detaches, but Inklinda steps aside as it moves past her...and over the edge.

Squilma: Oh...um...

Inklinda waves her Inkbrush in a frenzy, splatting Squilma and causing her ghost to float back to the pad. Inklinda grins.

Inklinda: You are totes cray if you think an umbrella's gonna, like, stop me or whatever, Squillie...

Scene 3: Ammo Knights: Afternoon

Squilma mic-drops the Brella in front of Sheldon.

Squilma: I demand a refund!

Inklein Shorts: Double-Half-Decent Art
AKA "The Artsy-Fartsy Mini-Episode"

Spoiler:
Scene 1: Inkopolis Square: Morning

We see Inklein spray-painting on a wall. He is wearing a Painter's Mask instead of his usual Pilot Goggles.

Inklein: Wow, this is so awesome...heehee!

Inklein stops spraying and sits against the wall.

Inklinda's voice: 'Morning, Squigley.

Inklinda walks up to Inklein.

Inklinda: I was just wondering what-

Inklinda's left eye squints.

Inklinda: Inklein...? But...you don't wear a Painter's Mask.

Inklein: ...I don't?

Inklinda: No! Squigley's, like, the only one of us who does, remember?

Inklein: I thought his mask got spla-

Inklinda: Gonna have to interrupt you there, Inkle-butt. What are you doing here, anyway?

Inklein: Sitting down.

Inklinda shakes her head.

Inklinda: No, I mean aside from sitting down.

Inklein: Breathing.

Inklinda facepalms.

Inklinda: Idiot...

Inklinda speaks in a loud, stretched tone.

WHY DO YOU HAVE A CAN OF SPRAY PAINT?

Inklein: Oh, this? To spray paint on this wall.

The scene zooms out to reveal a kawaii-looking image of Squilma. Inklein stands and turns to face his work. Inklinda is dumbfounded.

Inklinda: Uh...Inklein, this...this is...

Inklein: The Inkopolis city hall hired me as a graffiti artist. They said I could paint anything I desired!

Inklinda's left eye squints.

Inklinda: So you chose Squilma?

Inklein turns to look at Inklinda.

Inklein: Sure. Why not?

Inklinda: Sweetie, there are, like, EIGHT HUNDRED better things for you to paint than THIS load of carp!

Inklein: Well, what would you suggest?

Inklinda pokes her fingers together and gives a soft smile.

Inklinda: Well...you could paint ME, for one...

Inklein stares at Inklinda for a few seconds.

Inklein: No.

Inklinda: Thanks, I knew you'd-

Inklinda's eyes widen as she stares at Inklein.

Inklinda: ...what?

Inklein: No.

Inklinda flips out.

Inklinda: YOU STUPID-

Inklinda whips out her Inkbrush.

Inklinda: You asked for this, sweetie!

Inklinda runs up to the painting and waves her Inkbrush back and forth in a frenzy. She cackles.

Inklinda: Take THAT, Spillma! AHAHAHAHAAH!

Inklinda lowers her inkbrush and admires her handiwork. The entire painting is covered by orange ink.

Inklinda: Come on, I'll buy you a juice.

Inklinda begins walking away. Inklein starts to follow her.

Inklein: I like that you're testing your art skills, Lindie, but couldn't you find a different wall? Ideally one which doesn't have a painting on it? Lindie?

Squilma starts to walk past the wall. The ink disappears with a "munch munch" sound. Squilma looks to her left and sees the wall.

Squilma: Wait...the fresh?!

Squika Shorts: A Year in the Life
AKA "The Squid Research Lab Mini-Episode"

Spoiler:
Scene 1: Inkopolis Square: Morning

We see a view of Squika in the middle of Inkopolis Square.

Narrator: We here at the Squid Research Lab have seen some unusual things while studying Inkling culture, but there is one thing that still baffles us: Inklings who choose to remain in a perpetual squid form.

Squika folds his tentacles together.

Just look at this specimen: on the surface, he looks like any other squid form Inkling, but there's something extra-special about him.

Squika suddenly inks himself.

Oh...um...ew.

***
The scene cuts to a view of Squika on the dance pad outside The Shoal.

Narrator: Here we see the specimen participating in what appears to be some sort of ritualistic courtship dance.

Squilma leaves The Shoal and looks at Squika, before she frowns and walks away.

I don't know about you, but this researcher expects our squiddy friend to find a mate in no time at all!

Scene 2: Arowana Mall: Afternoon

We see a view of purple and lime green splatter marks across the ground.

Narrator: Just like others of their kind, squid form Inklings enjoy doing Turf War, though their approach may be a little different than what you'd expect...

Squika leaps through the purple ink like a dolphin. He appears delighted.

Just look at the specimen leap out of the water like a dolphin! He appears to be having the most fun out of all his teammates!

Squika is splatted by Inklein, who has lime green tentacles and a Slosher filled with lime green ink. Squika's ghost floats back to the spawn pad.

Oh dear...we have just witnessed the downside of playing Turf War in squid form: there's no easy way to defend oneself. But don't worry, champ. You'll get 'em next time!

Scene 3: Inkopolis Square: Evening

We see Squika repeatedly jumping into the air outside Deca Tower.

Narrator: After a hard day of Turf War, even squid form Inklings enjoy the Inkopolis nightlife. Just look at our friend, dancing the night away outside Inkopolis Square's hottest spots!

Squika suddenly inks himself, and causes a jet of purple ink to land on Inklinda, who screams and runs away.

Hm...something tells me it will take a little longer for our friend to find a mate...oh well, keep at it, skipper!

***
We see a view of Squika near the Crust Bucket munching a Shwaffle.

Narrator: As you have seen, squid form Inklings are fascinating creatures to observe. I think we'll leave our friend to enjoy his evening meal.

A bird swoops down and snatches up Squika's Shwaffle. Squika's eyes widen, before he begins to sob.

Until next time! Squid Research Lab, signing off!

Squilma Shorts: Squidling Rivalry
AKA "The "How come SHE, like, gets another one before me?!" Mini-Episode"

Spoiler:
Scene 1: Inkopolis Square: Morning

Squilma sits at a table, a cup of juice in her hand.

Squilma: Ah, such a nice day...I doubt anything can spoil it...

Inklinda's voice: Good morning, Squillie.

Inklinda and Inklein walk up to Squilma.

Squilma's voice: I have to learn to stop jinxing myself...

Squilma: What do you want, squid breath?

Inklinda puts her hand on her hip.

Inklinda: That insult doesn't, like, work on me, you know.

Squilma: Why? Are you resilient to my words? Sticks and stones, etc...

Inklinda: No, it's because I AM a squid!

Squilma sighs.

Squilma: Of course you are...anyway, what do you two dorks want?

Inklinda: HEY! We are NOT dorks or whatever!

Inklinda looks at Inklein, who laughs with a dorky grin on his face.

Inklein: You're so funny, Wilma...

Inklinda: Well...I'M not, anyway.

Squilma: What do you want?

Inklinda: What? Can't a girl, like, say "hi" to her BFF?

Squilma: Well, you've said it. Now raise anchor and shove off.

Inklinda grins.

Inklinda: You know, you can be, like, cheeky or whatever.

Squilma: I learned from the master.

Inklein: Heheheh..."master"...good one, Wilma.

Inklinda: Are you implying that I'M cheeky?

Squilma: No, just rude, insensitive, narcissistic-

Inklinda: Stop, stop! You're, like, flattering me or whatever!

Squilma: When did we stop being friends, Inklinda?

Inklinda: Pardon?

Squilma: We used to get along so well when we were squidlings.

Inklinda: We did?

Inklein: Wait a minute...

Inklein's eyes widen.

Inklein: I just realised I skipped breakfast!

Inklinda shakes her head.

Inklinda: Oh, but to, like, have an intelligent conversation or whatever...

Squilma's eyes widen.

Squilma: I know when it happened!

Inklein: When what happened...?

Squilma: When Inklinda stopped being nice!

Inklein scratches his head.

Inklein: Inklinda...?

Squilma sighs.

Squilma: "Lindie".

Inklein: Oh...right...

Inklinda: Spill it, Spillma. When did I apparently stop being nice or whatever?

Squilma: Camp Triggerfish.

Inklein giggles.

Inklein: Silly Wilma. Camp Triggerfish isn't a time, it's a PLACE!

Squilma: I went away to Camp Triggerfish as my Sweet 14 present, and when I got back it was like you were a whole different person!

Inklein: You mean like when Lindie and Squeaky-

Inklinda: Will you STOP mentioning that incident, you idiot?! Ugh, it took me long enough to stop having nightmares about it!

Squilma: Seriously, was the old Inklinda snatched away and replaced with some weird Octarian lab experiment?!

Inklinda: Oh, Squilma, you know as well as I do that the Octarians are just an urban legend or whatever!

Squilma: Look, the point is that you aren't the same as you used to be.

Inklinda: M-hm...whatever, honey.

Squilma growls.

Squilma: I'm leaving before you make me throw an Inklein at you!

Squilma stands off her seat and walks away. She leaves her cup on the table.

Inklinda: Okay then! Love to Squiggles for me!

Squilma's voice: Bite me!

Inklein looks at Inklinda.

Inklein: Heh...Squilma thinks you're a shark.

Inklinda saddens a little.

Inklinda: Maybe she's, like, right or whatever...maybe I HAVE changed...I have some thinking to-

Jelfonzo's voice: Behold! For the next hour at Ye Olde Cloth Shoppe, every piece of apparel receiveth a 50% reduction in price! Come one, come all and findeth a new you!

Inklinda: Ooh, a sale!

Inklinda walks over to Ye Olde Cloth Shoppe. Inklein picks up Squilma's cup and takes a sip, before spitting out the juice. His left eye squints.

Inklein: Yuck! I HATE cantaloupe!

Inklein drinks some more juice. He smiles.

Inklein: Mmm!

Squam Shorts: The Adventures of Squam Man
AKA "The Supersquid Mini-Episode"

Spoiler:
Scene 1: Inkopolis Square: Morning

We see Inklein walking through Inkopolis Square. He is holding an ice-cream cone.

Inklein: YAY! Purple is my favourite flavour!

Inklein goes to bite the ice-cream, but it falls out of the cone and onto the floor.

Inklein: Aw...

Squam leaps into view. He has a bedsheet tied around his neck and a pair of glossy yellow gloves on his hands.

Squam: What seems to be the trouble, citizen?

Inklein: Oh, it's Squidkid, the most awesomest superhero!

Squam: Actually, I'm...

Squam pulls a superhero pose.

Squam: ...SQUAM MAN!

Inklein scratches his head.

Inklein: Who...?

Squam: You know...? Squam Man?

Inklein: Uh...

Inklein's eyes widen.

Inklein: Oh, you're Squam! But...I didn't know your last name was "Man"...

Squam: What seems to be the trouble?

Inklein: Oh, well...um...my scalp's been itching a lot lately, and my purple fell on the ground.

Squam looks at the ground.

Squam: Not to worry, my good sir! I will be glad to assist you!

Squam runs away.

Inklein: Wow...Squam must REALLY like cosplaying...

***
Two hours later...

Squam runs back up to Inklein. He is holding a vanilla ice-cream cone and what resembles a bottle of shampoo.

Squam: Here you are, citizen! One ice-cream cone and one bottle of itchy scalp lotion!

Inklein: Wow...thanks, Squam Ma'am!

Squam: All in a day's work for...

Squam pulls his classic superhero pose.

Squam: SQUAM MAN!

Squam runs away. Inklein bites into his ice-cream. His left eye squints.

Inklein: Wait a minute...

Inklein's eyes widen.

Inklein: ...this lotion is for sensitive scalp! How did Squam Ma'am know?! Wow, he's the bestest superhero guy...

Inklein continues to eat his white-hued ice-cream.

Inklein: Mmm...purple...

Squienna Shorts: Squabotage
AKA "The Sabotage Mini-Episode"

Spoiler:
Scene 1: Inkopolis Square: Afternoon

Squienna walks away from Deca Tower.

Squienna's thoughts: Poor Squigley...he was spawn-splatted by Inklein...

Squienna ponders her thought.

Squienna's thoughts: Strange...this isn't the sort of thing Inklein would normally do...it's not in his nature...or his level of intelligence...

Inklinda's voice: Wow, you, like, did it PERFECTLY or whatever, Inkle-butt!

Squienna looks behind her. She sees Inklinda talking to Inklein.

Inklinda: It's things like that that'll put Team Ink & Swim on the map!

Inklein: Really...? Wow...

Inklinda: You really proved yourself today, y'know?

Inklein smiles.

Inklein: Hey, yeah...and after I thought I was doing something BAD.

Inklinda: Oh, you were bad, my guy friend.

Inklein's left eye squints.

Inklein: I was...?

Inklinda grins.

Inklinda: You're, like, a BAD little kid or whatever...and I like it.

Inklein's eyes widen.

Inklein: Uh...I-I just realised I have to go and...uh...do a thing. Bye!

Inklein dashes away. Squienna frowns.

Squienna: So SHE'S the true mastermind...I should do something EQUALLY heinous to her...heheheh...

Suddenly, a tiny Squienna with yellow tentacles pops onto her right shoulder.

Nice Squienna: Wait! You're doing WHAT?!

Squienna: Why is my subconscious manifesting a nice version of myself on my shoulder...?

A tiny Squienna with magenta tentacles and Octoling-styled eyes and ears pops onto her left shoulder.

Naughty Squienna: Same reason it manifested ME, Nicequienna!

The Nice Squienna gasps.

Nicequienna: Squienaughty! What are you doing here?!

The Naughty Squienna laughs.

Squienaughty: Isn't it obvious? I'm here to stop you from convincing Squienna to do something stupid!

Nicequienna: No-one asked you, you...Octoling, you!

Squienaughty: Ooh, is THAT the best ya got, you good-for-nothing squid?

Squienna: STOP! I can't handle people bickering, ESPECIALLY when they're manifestations of my conscience!

An Inkling looks at Squienna, his left eye squinting as he does so.

Squienna: Just...using my bluefin-enabled squidphone! Heheheh...

Squienaughty: So you know I'm from your subconscious, eh? Then you know I'M right!

Nicequienna: No, I'M the correct one!

Squienna: Hold it! NEITHER of you has actually given me a suggestion of what to do!

Voice: Trim her Inkbrush!

Squienna looks up. The scene zooms out to reveal a tiny Jellyfish on her head.

Squienna: And which part of my subconscious are you?

Jellyfish: Oh, I'm NEUTRAL Squienna, aka Jellyquieneutral, and I say trim her Inkbrush!

Squienna's left eye squints.

Squienna: That doesn't seem like a very neutral thing to do...

Jellyquieneutral: Well, it's what I'M suggesting, so I say it IS neutral!

Squienna looks at Squienaughty.

Squienna: Then what were you going to suggest?

Squienaughty: Throw a bucket of water over her.

Squienna: Whoa, whoa, whoa! That's WAY too extreme!

Nicequienna raises her hand.

Nicequienna: Um...I was going to suggest throwing a pie at her face.

Squienna throws her arms into the air.

Squienna: So basically, none of you is ACTUALLY helping me at all.

Squienaughty: Well, you better pick ONE of our ideas. Better yet, do all three!

Nicequienna: Now, now, Squienaughty, I think ONE idea is plenty.

Squienaughty razzes at Nicequienna.

Squienna: In that case, I'm choosing the middle ground option.

Squienaughty and Nicequienna are surprised.

Jellyquieneutral: YAY!

Scene 2: Inkopolis Streets: Afternoon

Squienna follows Inklinda, who is holding her Inkbrush.

Squienna: Okay...somehow, I need to trim that 'brush without Inklinda looking...

Inklinda loads her Inkbrush into what resembles an umbrella holder outside an art shop, before walking inside. Squienna's left eye squints.

Squienna: Well...that was easy.

Squienna sneaks up to the art shop. She readies a pair of shears and cuts off the bristles on Inklinda's Inkbrush.

Squienna: Heheheh...THAT'LL show her not to mess with Squigley! Now, to leave a note...

Squienna attaches a note to Inklinda's Inkbrush, before sneaking away. Inklinda leaves the shop, waving as she does so.

Inklinda: Like, thanks again or whatever! Now, to retrieve my-

Inklinda's eyes widen as she sees her Inkbrush.

Inklinda: My...my Inkbrush...this was the first weapon I ever haggled for a huge discount on! WHO DID THIS?! Hm...?

Inklinda sees the note and removes it. She reads it aloud.

Inklinda: "Dear Inklindumb, how DARE you do that to poor Squigley?! Consider the trimming of your Inkbrush as my gift to you...AND as a warning to NEVER, EVER do that again!"

Inklinda's left eye squints.

Inklinda: Why would Squiggles damage my Inkbrush...? This isn't like him...

Inklinda's thoughts: Wait...he wouldn't speak in the third-person, either...even on a note...and this isn't even his handwriting...it's-

Inklinda scrunches the note with one hand as her eyes appear to ignite.

Inklinda: SquiennAAAAAAAA!
