Octanner no Monogatari: A Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion Fan-Fiction by GeekyGamerZack

on July 11th 2018, 6:54 pm
Hi, all, and welcome to Octanner no Monogatari, the much-hyped sequel to Squigley no Densetsu! ("Much-hyped"...? Are you freshing serious?!)

In this chapter, we meet Octanner, an Octoling whose origins are not going to be mentioned in this paragraph as it would spoil the ending for those of you who have yet to finish reading Squigley no Densetsu, so consider this your first SPOILER WARNING. (Okay, how many of these warnings are you going to post? There better not be eight of 'em, 'cause that'd be, like, repetitive or whatever...)

In this chapter, we catch up with many old friends such as Squilma, Squika, Inklinda, Inklein and Agent 3, as well as new ones like...um...Whatsisname, and...uh...that girl. (What's the matter? Having trouble writing about this chapter without spoiling the plot of the original?)

As was mentioned before, this series has a LOT of spoilers for both Squigley no Densetsu and Ally-Squinn no Shinwa, so I advise you to read those first. Consider this your second SPOILER WARNING. (Okay, that's, like, getting annoying or whatever...)

So if you're ready to continue the tale, then get ready to start the first episode of Octanner's chapter, Octo Ex-splat-sion. I hope you enjoy! ("Octo Ex-splat-sion"...? The writer's puns are getting worse or whatever...)

***
Oh, and those snide comments at the start of every chapter? Yeah, you can thank (blame) Inklinda for those. Girl doesn't have a nice bone in her body... (Um...I'm made of INK. I don't HAVE bones. Ugh, you're so awesome at writing, writer. Wait...I didn't say how much I care about Inklein! What?! I...okay, okay, I'll stop!)

Episode 1: Octo Ex-splat-sion!
AKA "The Octoling Episode"

Part 1:
Scene 1: Cephalon HQ: Night

DJ Octavio: Hachi...? But...why?!

Hachi looks at DJ Octavio.

Hachi: Watashi wa okiniiri janaikara! (Because I'm not the favourite!)

Hachi pulls off her sunglasses, throws them to the ground, then crushes them with the heel of her boot.

Hachi: And now, I'm leaving with these two gaijin!

Hachi grabs "Squigley" and Squilma's hands and leads them through the hatch. She stops and turns to look at DJ Octavio.

Hachi: And my name's NOT Hachi, mmkay? It's-

The hatch suddenly slams shut.

Hachi: Oh, just as I was about to have my big moment...

Squilma: I...why did you save us...?

Hachi: Because I'm NOT under his control! That scum deserves to be splatted for good!

"Squigley": Whoa...my head...

"Squigley" leans against a wall and slowly slinks to the ground, before changing to octopus form.

Squilma: Squiggles!

Squilma squats next to Squigley.

Squilma: Are you okay?

"Squigley" nods.

"Squigley": Yeah, just a little tired...

Hachi: Understandable, considering what you went through.

Squilma looks at Hachi.

Squilma: Well, why didn't you stop him?

Hachi: It's...hard to explain.

Squilma: What, you thought it'd be funny to see him turn into one of...of...you?!

Hachi: I couldn't because...he said not to.

Squilma: Who? Octavio?

Hachi shakes her head.

Hachi: I can't explain right now. Please, just trust me.

Squilma: How do I know you're not leading us into a trap?

Hachi: You need proof? Very well...

Hachi pulls an octophone seemingly from nowhere.

Squilma: I didn't know those uniforms hadd pockets...

Hachi: They don't.

Squilma: Then how-

Hachi taps on her phone's screen. The Calamari Inkantation begins to play. Hachi headbangs to the beat and begins to sing.

Hachi: ♫Ya weni marei mirekyarahire
Juri yu mirekerason

Kire hyari yoriherahe nyurahera
Nunnyura unera yurawera nyimerani


Hachi pauses the song. Squilma's eyes widen.

Squilma: You were touchd by the heavenly melody?

Hachi: Yes. You can thank the New Squidbeak Splatoon for freeing me, as well as countless other Octarians...well, FORMER Octarians.

Squilma's left eye squints.

Squilma: Then why let Squigley be transformed?

"Squigley" suddenly inks himself, though the ink puddle is green rather than aqua.

"Squigley": Sorry about that...

Squilma: It's fine. Save your strength. You'll need it for when we make our escape.

Hachi: Curious...his ink puddle is green.

Squilma stares at the puddle on the ground.

Squilma's thoughts: It must be residual ink from his Inkling form...maybe...?

Squilma: Hachi? Please carry Squigley out of this place.

Hachi: Of course, Agent 4-san.

Hachi lifts "Squigley" onto her shoulders.

Hachi: Ready, Octugley-kun?

"Squigley": Yeah.

Hachi begins to head for the exit.

Oh, but please don't call me that.

Hachi: Oh...um...Octugley-san?

"Squigley": No, I meant...uh, never mind.

Hachi: Are you following, Agent 4-san?

Squilma: Yeah, be right there!

Squilma snaps on a pair of yellow rubber gloves.

Squilma's thoughts: I can't believe I'm doing this...ew...

Part 2:
Scene 2: Ate & Switch: Morning

Eight weeks later (give-or-take)...

Squilma sits at a table. She is picking at a plate of wakame. Squilma sighs.


Inklein's voice: What's wrong, Wilma?

Squilma looks up at Inklein.

Squilma: Oh, hey, Inklein. Wait...where's Inklinda?

Inklein: Who?

Squilma: You know...Lindie?

Inklein's eyes widen.

Inklein: Oh, she's just parking the pool.

Squilma: Parking the-

Squilma shakes her head.

Squilma: Never mind.

Squilma sighs again. Inklein sits down.

Inklein: What's wrong, Wilma?

Squilma looks at Inklein.

Squilma: I really miss Squigley...

Inklein: Aw, that's so sad. Was he your pet?

Squilma's left eye squints.

Squilma: What?

Inklein: Squigley sounds like a pet's name, right?

Squilma: Look, Inklein-

Inklein: Did he run away? Or was he taken to a farm upstate?

Inklein gasps.

Inklein: Oh no! Is he-

Squilma: WIGGLES! I'm talking about Wiggles!

Inklein: Oh...

Inklein giggles.

Inklein: Silly Wilma! Wiggles isn't a pet! Silly Wilma!

Squilma: For the love of-

Squilma sighs for a third time.

Squilma: Wiggles went on vacation a couple months ago. He said he'll be back "when he's ready", okay?

Inklinda's voice: Who the fresh is "Wiggles"...?

Squilma looks at Inklinda.

Squilma: Oh, hey, Inklinda. I was just trying to explain to Inklein that I miss Squigley.

Inklinda: I know what you mean. I can't stop thinking about him...

Squilma: Wait...do you...like-like Squigley?

Inklinda's left eye squints.

Inklinda: What? Why the fresh would you think THAT?

Squilma: Then...you're NOT interested in him?

Inklinda: Of COURSE not! You think I like-like him? Yeah right! More like HE like-likes ME or whatever.

Squilma laughs.

Squilma: What? That's ridiculous! The Great Za-

Squilma pauses.

Squilma: Sorry, force of habit. But seriously, Squigley isn't interested in you!

Inklinda: Oh? Are you SURE about that?

Squilma: Of COURSE I am! Besides, it wouldn't work out, would it?

Inklinda: I know what you mean. ME dating an OCTOLING? Daddy would cut my allowance if I did THAT!

Squilma rolls her eyes.

Squilma: It's nice to know that you care about things other than yourself, Lindie...besides, he's still the same Squigley!

Inklein: Yeah. You're so smart, Wilma...

Squilma grins.

Squilma: That's what people keep telling me!

Inklinda: And even if I DID like-like him, I can't, because I, like, already HAVE a boyfriend or whatever.

Squilma: You do?

Squilma slowly looks at Inklein.

Squilma's thoughts: No freshing WAY...

Voice: Um...hello? Agent 4?

Squilma turns to look at Hachi. She is wearing casual clothing, and her tentacles are yellow. Squilma stands.

Squilma: Hachi? Is that you?

Hachi smiles and nods.

Hachi: Yes. It is good to see you again.

Squilma: Likewise.

Hachi sees Inklinda and Inklein.

Hachi: Oh, are these your friends?

Inklinda: I wouldn't call us "friends", per se. We're more like close personal acquaintances or whatever.

Inklein: And I'm a fry cook!

Squilma: Oh, right! This is Inklinda Squatson and Inklein. I...don't know his last name.

Hachi smiles and bows.

Hachi: Hajimemashite. (Nice to meet you.)

Inklinda: Uh...hi?

Inklein: Hajimemashite. (Nice to meet you.)

Inklein bows.

Inklinda: You speak Octarian, honey?

Inklein: I do?

Inklinda sighs.

Hachi: My name is Takozonesu Octabigail.

Inklinda: Long name. Is there, like, something else we can call you?

"Hachi": Well...some people call me "Octabby".

Inklein: Tabby? You mean like Judd? Are you half-puss?

Squilma: Don't mind Inklein. He's a few shrimp short of a cocktail.

Octabby giggles.

Squilma: So where have you been? I haven't seen you since you were taken away by Ally-Squinn!

Octabby: It's a long story...say, where's Squigley?

Squilma: It's a long story...

Inklein looks at Inklinda.

Inklein: Hey, how come you made Wilma think I was your boyfriend...?

Inklinda: It's, like, a long story or whatever...

Part 3:
Scene 3: Wahoo World: Morning

We see "Squigley" holding a weapon similar to a Splattershot in the middle of Wahoo World, a popular seaside amusement park. The scene flashes for a brief moment.

Voice: All done!

Seth walks into view and hands "Squigley" an octophone.

"Squigley": Thanks.

Seth: Hey, no problem. So you live in Inkopolis too?

"Squigley": Uh...yeah, I do.

Seth: So what do you think of it? I'm sure it's very different to where you USED to live, right?

"Squigley": I...wouldn't know, since I don't remember where I used to live.

Seth's eyes widen.

Seth: Seriously?

"Squigley": Yeah. It's fine, though. I've made a bunch of friends, and they're all so nice...well, Inklinda can be...actually, never mind.

Seth's left eye squints.

Seth: You're friends with Inklinda Squatson?

"Squigley": Yeah, I guess so.

Seth: And Inklein?

Squigley grins.

"Squigley": Yeah. He's awesome!

Seth: Then...do you know-

Seth pauses.

"Squigley": Who?

Seth: Do you know Ally-Squinn Maki?

"Squigley" thinks.

"Squigley": Hm...nope, doesn't ring a bell.

Seth: Oh, you'd LOVE her. She's AMAZING!

"Squigley": I'll take your word for it.

Seth: Yeah! Hey, we should TOTALLY hang out sometime. I'll introduce you!

"Squigley": I think I'd like that.

Seth: Cool. Say, what's your name?

"Squigley": It's Squi-

"Squigley" pauses.

"Squigley": Um...Octu-

"Squigley's" thoughts: Nope, "Octugley" isn't gonna work...stoopid Octavio...

"Squigley": Um...call me "Octanner".

Seth: Octanner, huh? That's an AMAZING name!

Octanner grins.

Octanner: Thanks.

Seth: Well...uh...d'you wanna head over to Ate & Switch?

Octanner: Yeah, I guess I do. I need to catch up with Squilma.

Seth: You know Squilma? Is there anyone you DON'T know?

Squika lands on Octanner's head.

Seth: SQUIKA! What are you doing?!

Squika: I wanted to surprise my dear friend Squigley!

Seth: Well, you can't! Squigley went back to his own time MONTHS ago!

Octanner's thoughts: Wait...what is Seth talking about...?

Squika: Don't be absurd, bruh! Squigley is RIGHT HERE!

Octanner's thoughts: Squika, what are you-

Seth: Well, all I see is my silly twin and my new Octoling friend. Oh, Octanner, this is my...uh...Squika.

Octanner: Oh, we've met.

Squika: Yes, but then you left me behind while you went on your vacation, just like Seth-Inkley here. But now you're both home! YAY!

Octanner giggles.

Octanner: I missed you too, Squika.

Squika begins to sob.

Squika: Aw, you're so nice, Squiggles...

Seth's left eye squints.

Seth's thoughts: Okay, HOW do you get "Squiggles" from a name like Octanner...?

To be Continued...
Part 4:
Scene 4: Ate & Switch: Afternoon

Ally, Squilma, Inklinda and Inklein sit at a table.

Squilma: So...any reason you invited us here, Ally-Squinn?

Ally: Yeah, there is.

Inklinda: Wait...why am I here? I have better things to do right now or whatever.

Ally: Well, Seth called and said he met a friend of yours at Wahoo World.

Squilma's eyes widen.

Squilma: Squigley?!

Ally shakes her head.

Ally: No, it's someone I haven't met. Some guy named Octanner.

Squilma's left eye squints.

Squilma: What? I don't know anyone named-

Inklein: Wiggles!

Squilma looks at Inklein.

Squilma: What are you talking about, Inkle-butt?

Inklein points at the door.

Inklein: Wiggles just walked in with Purple Squika!

Squilma's left eye squints even further.

Squilma: I think you've lost your Power Eggs...

Octanner's voice: Hey, everyone.

Squilma's eyes widen as she looks at Octanner.

Squilma: Squiggles! You're back!

Octanner smiles.

Octanner: Yep! I-

Squilma leaps off her chair and hugs Octanner.

Seth: Hey, what am I, chopped Leever?

Inklein giggles.

Inklein: Silly Purple Squika! That's not a SEA pun, it's a ZELDA pun! Silly Purple Squika.

Squilma lets go of Octanner and looks at Seth.

Squilma: Nice to see you, Seth-Inkley. Say...where's Squika? And how did you get here so fast?

Seth: Oh, he's parking the car. We took the carpool lane to get here.

Squilma: Nice.

Ally: Hold up...Seth, you said you were bringing a guy named Octanner, right?

Seth: Yeah?

Ally: Then why is Squigley here instead of him?

Seth laughs.

Seth: Don't be silly, Ally! Squigley returned to his own time!

Inklinda sighs.

Inklinda's thoughts: I think he's been spending too much time hanging out with Inkle-butt...

Ally: No, Seth. This is Squigley.

Ally gestures to Octanner.

Seth: No, it CAN'T be. Squigley's an Inkling. This? This is an Octoling.

Inklinda: Like, what's the difference?

Seth: Well, a different number of tentacles, for one. But that's not the point: this can't be Squigley because he's-

Octanner: Actually, I AM Squigley. Well...used to be, anyway...

Squilma: Used to be...?

Ally: Squigley...

Octanner: I figure that I'm a new person now. In a sense, I've been reborn...given a fresh start...so I renamed myself.

Octanner raises his hand.

Octanner: Hi! I'm Octanner, an Inkopolitan Octoling.

Inklinda: But...you're still...YOU, right?

Octanner: Oh, don't get me wrong. I may be different on the outside, but inside I'm still the same guy. I've just been given a new coat of ink.

Squilma and Ally smile. Inklinda makes a slight smile.

Ally: Well said...

Ally's thoughts: ...but it's only temporary, right...? I mean...your future self has been restored to Inkling form...we just need to figure out how to change you back...

Scene 5: Ammo Knights: Afternoon

We see a view of Ammo Knights. Multiple electric blue flashes are seen, each coupled with the sound of electrical zaps.

Sheldon's voice: I've...I've succeeded! This new device may be the answer we've been seeking! Uh-oh...

We see a brief zap, followed by a squishy plop sound. Callie walks through the front door and approaches the back room, a brown paper bag in her hand.

Callie: Shelly! I brought you a bag of freshly-cooked crabby-

Callie looks into the back room and drops the bag. She calls out.

Callie: Uh...Marie? I think Sheldon's been eaten by a Kraken...

To be Continued...
Part 5:
Scene 6: Ate & Switch: Evening

Octanner, Octabby, Ally, Seth, Squilma, Squika, Inklinda and Inklein sit at a table, a huge ice-cream sundae in front of each of them.

Inklein: Hey...I just realised something.

Inklinda: I find that hard to believe...

Squilma: What is it, Inklein?

Inklein: There are eight main characters in this scene! It's the largest group in a single scene to date!

Inklinda: Yeah? So?

Squika: Well, the writer IS trying to emphasise a theme of the number 8, right?

Octanner: Yeah, but I think it was just a happy coincidence in this case...

Squilma: But isn't it hard to write dialogue for more than a handful of characters at once?

Inklein giggles.

Inklein: Silly Wilma! You can't fit characters in a person's hand, they're too BIG! Silly Wilma!

Ally: Squilma's right. I mean, odds are that not everyone will be able to speak before this scene finishes.

Seth opens his mouth to speak.

Callie's voice: Squilma! Ally!

Callie and Marie run up to the table.

Squilma: What's wrong, Callie?

Callie: No time to speak! Hurry!

Marie: Callie, I think it's-

Callie: Not now, Marie! We need to-

Callie pauses for a ridiculously long time.

Octanner: Uh...Callie?

Callie: Not now, Squidley! You need to come NOW!

Octanner: Wait...didn't you say you needed-

Callie: Squidley, please! You and Squilma and Ally and the Veemo and maybe Squika need to come RIGHT NOW!

Octabby: M-Me...? Really?

Squika: Ooh, I'm being included? Goody!

Inklein giggles.

Inklein: Silly Squeaky! You're not a-

Callie: Come on! Hurry up, already!

Marie: (Overreacting as usual...)

Octanner: Uh...right.

Octanner, Octabby, Ally, Squilma and Squika follow Callie out of the store. Marie looks at Seth, Inklinda and Inklein.

Inklinda: Wait...why the fresh weren't WE included?

Marie: Honestly? No idea. I try to let my cousin do her own thing...

Marie's thoughts: ...which MAY have been a mistake that one time...

Inklein: Well, at least we all got to say something during this scene.

Squam's voice: Hey, Inklein! Your preordered copy of Squidkid 2: Return of the Kidsquid just came in!

Inklein: YAY! Even SQUAM got to say something! AND I have a new game to play on my Swimtendo Switch!

Inklinda: Well, I guess it IS important for characters to be able to say lines in scenes or whatever...

Seth opens his mouth to speak.

Scene 7: Ammo Knights: Evening

Octanner, Octabby, Ally and Squilma follow Callie inside Ammo Knights.

Callie: Okay, Agents, it's time to brief you on your mission!

Octanner: Uh...Octabby and I aren't agents...

Octabby: Um...

Callie: Oh, right...well then, I guess it's not a MISSION but more of a-

We see a blue flash from the back room, followed by the sound of an electrical zap.

Sheldon's voice: I...I did it!

Callie: Sheldon? Is that you? Are you okay?!

Sheldon's voice: Oh, Agent 1!

Sheldon walks from the back room and steps on the brown paper bag.

Sheldon: Oh...um...

Callie: Oh, sorry, Shelly! I left your dinner on the floor!

Sheldon: It's quite alright, Agent-

Sheldon sees Octanner and Octabby.

Sheldon: I mean..."Callie".

Callie: So what happened? Did you use a gadget to cut your way out of that Kraken's stomach?

Sheldon: Kraken?

Callie: Yeah! There was a huge, slimy monster in the back room, right?

Sheldon: Actually, that was me.

Callie: You were turned into a Kraken?! That must've been HORRIBLE!

Ally: That scenario seems familiar...

Sheldon: What? No, I accidentally electrocuted myself and fell to the ground. I knocked a sheet of tarp over me, which snagged on a bucket of green slime and caused the tarp to become covered with the substance.

Callie: But it had tentacles! And it was writhing around!

Sheldon: Ah, those would have been the convulsions.

Callie: So...this whole thing was just a big misunderstanding...?

Sheldon: Yes indeed, Callie. Anyway, I managed to build something truly wonderful indeed!

***
The group stares at a machine that resembles the one DJ Octavio used to transform Squigley into Octanner.

Ally: What is it, Sheldon?

Sheldon: It's a transmutation reversal unit. I built it by reverse-engineering the device Inklein used to accidentally switch the bodies of Inklinda and Squika.

Squilma: I remember that...wait...wasn't Squika with us?

Ally: Hey, yeah...where IS he?

Squilma: Eh, I'm sure he'll turn up.

Sheldon: I also received some of the leftover parts from the v.21072017 iteration of Donburi Podd's restoration machine after it was successfully converted into a taffy machine.

Ally giggles.

Ally: Gee, I wonder who did THAT?

Sheldon: Basically, it will work to restore any Inkling whose physiology was altered using the energy of the tidemoon.

Ally and Squilma's eyes widen.

Squilma: We could use it to restore-

Ally: -Octobel!

Squilma's left eye squints.

Squilma: Who the fresh is Octobel?

Ally: Did...I say "Octobel"...? I meant Octanner!

Octanner ponders Ally's words.

Squilma: Yep! Squiggles can return to being the Inkling he was meant to be!

Sheldon: I'm afraid it's not quite that simple, Squilma. Without a sample of the subject's untampered ink, the machine will not work.

Ally: Then...Squigley's stuck like this?

Ally's thoughts: No...it CAN'T be...there must be another way...there HAS to be...

Squilma: Then are YOU in luck, Shelster?

Sheldon: What do you mean...?

Squilma: Well, when Octabby and I escaped from Octavio's lair with Squigley, I happened to salvage a sample of his ink!

Sheldon: Oh, that's wonderful, Squilma!

Squilma: How much do you need?

Sheldon: Oh, even a droplet is enough to restore him!

The girls cheer.

Ally: Perfect! Now things can get back to normal!

Squilma: You said it, Ally-Squinn!

Octabby smiles at Octanner.

Octabby: This is excellent to hear, right, Octanner?

Octanner: Uh...yeah, I guess it is...

Callie: Ooh, let's throw a party at The Shoal to celebrate! Squidley LOVES that place!

Squilma: Yeah, and we can invite all our friends!

Ally: Oh, this is going to be so much fun!

Octanner: Yeah...great...

Octanner stares at his feet.

Octanner's thoughts: This is getting confusing...am I an Inkling or an Octoling...? It'd be easier if I were both...

Scene 8: Tentakeel Outpost: Night

Squika awakens outside Cuttlefish Cabin. He sits up slightly and looks around.

Squika: What happened...?

Suddenly, a pair of black boots lands in front of him. Squika slowly looks up, revealing an Octopus Amazon.

Squika: Hey, you're one of those Taco Zesties, are you not...?

The Octopus Amazon scowls.

Octopus Amazon: Baka! Watashi wa Tako! (Idiot! I am an Octoling!)

Squika: Oh...my apologies.

Octopus Amazon: Baka ika! Anata wa watashi no imōto to nani o shimashita ka? (Idiot Inkling! What have you done with my sister?)
Octanner's Holiday Snaps - Week 1:
Hi all! I'm Squigley Octanner, and I've decided to keep a log of the travels I did while coming to terms with my transition from Inkling to Octoling.

My first stop was a ship called the S.S. Hime-chan, which is a replica of the famous Manta Maria. Apparently, Off the Hook heard about my story, and so Marina organised for me to take a week-long cruise aboard Pearl's very own replica sea vessel!

I didn't get to meet either member during the voyage, but I DID get to meet another Octoling who took my photo while on-board:

Affix photo here
When printed


He even gave me a sweet weapon called an Octo Shot, a traditional Octoling shooter, and I'm seriously considering it as my main weapon for Turf War. 'Til next time!

Episode 2: Splatroid: Return of Squiggles!
AKA "The Döppelganger Episode"

Part 1:
Scene 1: Ammo Knights: Afternoon

We see a view of Sheldon's face.

Sheldon: I've done it!

Inklinda's voice: Like, done what or whatever?

The scene cuts to a view of Octanner, Squilma, Inklinda, Octabby and Ally-Squinn standing next to a machine labelled "OC-2-SQUID MACHINE".

Sheldon: I have constructed a machine that should reconstitute Squigley's molinkular structure back to his original Inkling form!

Squilma: Uh...didn't you build this contraption four months ago?

Sheldon: Well, yes, but someone converted it into a toffee machine, and it's taken this long to fix it...

Squilma: Darn it, Squika!

Inklinda: Actually, I think Inklein's the one to blame for this.

Ally: And why would you assume that?

Inklinda: Because he's good with machines.

Squilma: He is?

Inklinda: And toffee is his favourite food. Plus, he begged me to let him do it.

The scene wipes to a view of Inklinda on her knees near Inklein and the machine.

Inklinda: PLEEEEEEEASE do this for me, Inklein!

Inklein: But wouldn't that be a bad thing?

Inklinda: I'll let you be my friend if you do!

Inklein: Silly Lindie! I'm ALREADY your friend! Silly Lindie!

Inklinda: And I'll buy you a small drink at The Crust Bucket with your employee discount!

Inklein whips out a wrench from thin air.

Inklein: Let's do this.

The scene wipes back to the present.

Squilma: Ooh, that Inkle-butt! His sugar lust knows no bounds!

Ally: I guess we can't blame Inklinda this time, can we? I mean, she hates sugar, so she has no motive to do this.

Inklinda: You, like, know me so well, Andi.

Ally: "Ally".

Inklinda: Yeah, Ally.

Inklinda's thoughts: They must never know I'm attracted to the new Squigley...

Octabby: You have been most quiet, Octanner-kun. Is something on your mind?

Octanner looks at Octabby.

Octanner: Hm? Yeah, I've spent months trying to decide if I want to change back.

Ally: What?!

Ally's thoughts: But...he HAS to be restored! Otherwise...

Octanner: And I've decided to do it.

Ally: I KNEW you would! I mean...um...woohoo...

Squilma: So hurry up already!

Octanner: Uh-

Squilma shoves Octanner into the machine and slams the door.

Squilma: Shelster! How do you start this thing?

Sheldon: You wish to activate it, Agent 4?

Squilma: Yep! I got Squiggles into this mess, so I'm gonna fix-

Inklein's voice: Hi, peeps! What's everyone doing next to the machine that Inklinda begged me to turn into a toffee maker?

Ally: Inklinda!

Inklinda: What? That's, like, ridiculous or whatever! HAHAHAHAHAInkleinyouaresosplattedwhenwegethome.

Inklein: Ooh, a big blue button!

Squilma: Inklein, no!

Inklinda: Inklein, yes!

Inklein presses the button. A splat sound is heard.

Squilma: Squiggles!

Octabby: Octanner-kun!

Octanner's voice: Uh...could someone please open the door...?

Squilma: Sheldon!

Sheldon: Uh...right.

Sheldon punches in a code, and the door opens. Octanner runs out, seemingly in a panic.

Ally: Squigley, what's wrong?

Octanner: Th-There's a...a THING in there!

Squilma: A...thing?

Squilma looks in the chamber. A toffee statue of Octanner's original Inkling form is inside.

Squilma: Uh...it's a toffee you...

Octanner: Yeah, but it talks!

Squilma: Squigley, it's a piece of ca-

Toffee Squigley: Hello? Is someone there? I can't hear you too well 'cause my ears are blocked by sticky goop. Also, my eyes seem to be glued shut, so I can't see you. Hello?

Everyone except Inklein is shocked.

Inklein: Wow...talking candy! I must be a genie, yes!

Part 2:
Scene 2: Inkopolis Square: Afternoon

Octanner, Squilma, Inklinda, Inklein, Ally and Octabby stand with the toffee Squigley near The Crust Bucket.

Inklinda: So...why are we, like, standing outside with this thing or whatever?

Inklein: Because the sun's rays will soften up the toffee-

Ally: -which will, in turn-

Inklinda: Uh...I was talking to INKLEIN, not you, Princess.

Ally: All I'm saying is that Inklein is a genius!

Inklinda: Oooookay, I think someone needs to rehydrate...

Squilma: Actually, Inklein's been saying a LOT of intelligent things lately...

Inklein: Heheheh, Jellyfish look like jelly noodles with a jelly dumpling on top!

Squilma: ...though he usually follows up with a very Inklein turn of phrase.

Toffee Squigley: Okay, I'm starting to freak out!

Octanner: YOU'RE freaking out?!

Toffee Squigley: I mean, how long is it gonna take you to turn me into one of you, Octavio?!

Squilma's left eye squints.

Squilma: Did...it just mention Octavio...?

Inklein: Hm...I have a hunch...

Inklein grabs onto the toffee Squigley's forearm and pulls, tearing away a chunk of candy and revealing pale skin underneath.

Squilma: Does anyone else see what I'm seeing?

Inklein shoves the toffee chunk into his mouth and begins to chew.

Inklinda: Yeah, and it's 88 flavours of disgusting!

Inklein: My hunch was right! This IS toffee!

Toffee Squigley: Why does my arm suddenly feel a pleasant breeze in one spot...?

Octanner: I think I've figured it out!

Ally: So have I.

Squilma: What? What is it?

Octanner: I think...

Octanner nervously latches onto the side of the toffee Squigley's face and pulls, revealing a real Squigley face underneath, complete with the familiar Painter's Mask.

Squilma: Squigley? But...how-

"Squigley": Squilma! What happened? He turned me into an octopus, didn't he? Oh...this is not good!

Octanner: He's...me.

"Squigley": Wait...are we in Inkopolis Square? And why are there Oct-

"Squigley" pauses.

Octanner: Okay, I know what you're thinking, but just hear us out. We-

"Squigley": AAAAAAAAHH!!

Inklinda: Um...well, this is happening or whatever.

Inklein points to the toffee in Octanner's hand.

Inklein: Are you gonna eat that, Wiggles?

Inklein takes the toffee and bites into it. Inklinda dry-heaves.

Inklinda: 88 flavours of disgusting...

Scene 3: Ammo Knights: Evening.

Sheldon examines a now de-toffeed "Squigley" closely.

Sheldon: Hm...

Sheldon plucks a tiny piece of leftover candy from "Squigley's" quiff and rubs his thumb and index finger in a clockwise motion, before pinching them together. Inklein pats his belly.

Inklein: That candy was so good...hey, let's make another toffee Wiggles!

Squilma: You can't!

Inklein: Aw, why not?

Squilma: Because Lindie just destroyed the machine.

Sheldon looks at Inklinda.

Inklinda: What? I knew Inkle-butt would try making another candy Squigley, and I can only tolerate so much from him.

Sheldon: Yes...in any case, this Inkling is most definitely Squigley.

Squilma: But how?

Sheldon: Well, it seems that the machine restored the original Squigley from the ink sample instead of changing back Octanner.

Squilma: Isn't there anything you can do?!

Sheldon: Well, I could reconstitute the duplicate back into his component material, but that would be a mean thing to do to him.

Squigley: Yes, please don't do that.

Squilma: So you have Squiggles' memories?

Squigley: Only up to the incident in Octo Canyon. It seems I have a LOT of catching up to do. Say, where's Squika?

Ally: He's-

Everyone pauses.

Ally: Now that you mention it...

Scene 4: Unknown Location: Evening

We cut to a view of Squika locked in a cage, a dog dish labelled "IKA" next to him.

Squika: Four months locked in a cage with nothing but caviar and truffles to eat...why hasn't anyone rescued me...?
