Gorillaz Plastic Beach

Gorillaz Plastic Beach

0 INK

Roleplay of the new Gorillaz on Plastic Beach where Mudoc is looking for pages to a book, 2D is afraid of whales, Russel's bigger than the house, Noodle's a robot and Kong's burned down...

901 readers have visited Gorillaz Plastic Beach since CyborgNoodle created it.

Introduction

Noodle, the band's guitarist, is seemingly dead. She was last seen falling through the skies in the "El Manana" video from Demon Days, and it's since been discovered that she was kidnapped by demons and taken to Hell afterwards. The Noodle that's around now is a not-exactly-fully-functional cyborg clone built by Murdoc, Gorillaz' Keith Richards-gone-even-more-wrong bassist, as part-musical replacement and part-bodyguard. Murdoc is being hunted down by a group of disgruntled pirates called The Black Clouds after selling them shitty weapons in a get-rich-quick scheme gone wrong. After the Clouds' destroyed the Gorillaz' previous recording studio (Kong Studios, home of the band's website for the first two albums), Murdoc decamped to Point Nemo - an island described as "the furthest point from any landmass known to man" - and set up a new base of operations to make a new album. Not that the rest of the band wanted to; drummer Russel (Who, way back during the first album, managed to conjure Del The Funkee Homosapien from his head in the "Clint Eastwood" video) and singer 2D refused to join in, but a quick kidnapping - as seen in the 2D tease - and a drum machine fixed those problems.

That would seem to be enough - It's definitely more effort than normally goes into interviews surrounding a new album - but Plastic Beach has more. Apparently, the album is named after a mysterious book containing the history of the world that Murdoc found on Point Nemo, one that also suggests that 2010 may be the mythical End of Days, giving the videos, website and other promotional efforts surrounding the music even more of a storyline to play with. Is Plastic Beach all about the apocalypse? Will the real Noodle escape from Hell (Is there still a "real Noodle"?)? We know that a pissed-off Russel seems to be headed to the island after all, will he save the day? And what do the Black Clouds really want?

Toggle Rules

1. feel free to bring in O.C.'s, just don't make yourself Murdoc's girlfriend or some crap
2. There can only be one of each band member, not 20 2D's running around the place
3. Like I said, don't stick strictly to the Gorillaz band, feel free to bring in all kinds of different thing, the Gorillaz have collaborators, right? So what's wrong with a few crossovers. (ex. Mulder and Scully from the X Files come to investigate the strange happenings at Plastic Beach for an X File...)
4. Please, for the sake of everyone, do not make this all about angst. Yes there can be some angst, but like the Gorillaz music, keep a nice balance.
5. It's gotta keep moving, there is never a dull day in the world of Gorillaz.

Taking place in...

The bassist paused on the porch just outside the main entrance. He searched around the area, knowing quite well his singer couldn't get anywhere if he didn't know where he was going. Murdoc took a drag before throwing the fag down and stomping it out. Oh he would find them; find them both and punish one. Slowly he walked down the stairs as he spotted a shock of blue hair. A grin slowly grew and he leisurely lit another fag as he walked. Today was going to be a fantastic day.

The singer shoved his hands into his pockets and kicked at the pink plastic. His heart pounded in his chest as he thought of what could possibly happen if he were to tell her what he really meant. The pain was nothing but it didn't mean he wanted it; his still red cheek was proof. 2D looked over at Noodle and smiled feebly. "W-Well, 'e neva lemme out of me room. I only got out if 'e needed somfing or we were going somewhere," he explained.

Noodle scowled and placed her hand on the bruised cheek. There was worry and danger in her green eyes. "Did he do this to you, 2D?" She asked quietly. Noodle had already known the answer to her question, but she needed confirmation from the singer. Why had she tried to save the soul of such an awful person? She knew that he wasn't all bad, but he seemed to be acting more on his violence rather than anything else recently.





Cy followed the bass player diligently. Her robotic eyes swept over the beach, She had patrolled the area so many times that she would instantly notice any being or item that was out of place or wasn't normally on the beach. She quickly located the singer and pointed to him and her lighter counterpart.

Without warning the bassist grabbed onto the back of his singer's shirt and tugged, successfully pulling the 32 year old to the ground. "Oi, faceache! How many times have I got to tell you I am King of the fucking mountain?" he asked loudly. Murdoc placed his right foot on 2D's chest and glared down at him; he was trying to ignore Noodle. Just because she was back it didn't mean that he wasn't the moron's boss. "Just because Noodle is back it doesn't mean you can go around doing as you please. I still rule ya hear?" He added slight pressure to the foot he had on the singer's chest, driving the Cuban heel into skin.

"Well, I-Ah!" 2D winced as he hit the ground and gasped as the heel drove into his chest. He looked up at the bassist fearfully as he asked him the question of who was higher up on the ladder. The singer nodded and bit down on his lip. Again he nodded in response to the bassist's question and winced as the heel drove into his skin. He was afraid, he'd known he would get in trouble; yet he'd done it. He couldn't help it, Noodle had just made him so happy he was willing to disobey. Now that he was getting punished though, he really wished he'd listened in the first place. "I-I'm sorry Muhdoc. I'm sorry!"

Noodle watched and grimaced at Murdoc. Yes, he certainly had gotten out of control while she was gone. She came up to Murdoc and stood in front of him and 2D. "Get off of him." She said darkly. She really wished that Russel was here, he would most certainly take care of this. And judging by his size, he would do so very well.

Cy watched Noodle, ready for attack. If anyone, even her otherself, tried to harm Murdoc, she would be on them faster than they could say 'Murdoc is God'. She balled her robotic hands into fists, watching and waiting for any signs of violence towards her master.

The bassist glared at his guitarist for a moment before he angrily shoved his foot into the singer. He stepped away and threw his fag to the ground. "Just because you're back that doesn't mean you can change how things run around here alright?" he stated before he turned away and stalked off. Noodle would not change the hierarchy of power on his beach. Point Nemo belonged to him; everything and everyone on Point Nemo were his to control. His hands clenched into fists and he placed them in his pockets. Murdoc kept walking until he paused and let himself fall onto the pink plastic in a seated position. His anger was gone and he was truly seeing what he was doing; everything was all so wrong.

2D coughed and rolled onto his side, curling around his wounded chest. It hurt to breathe and that last shove the bassist had given made him feel like someone had ripped out his lungs. Already he could feel the bruise forming and he knew it would be worse than the simple slap mark on his face. Each breath sent a shockwave of pain through his body and immediately a migraine started to form. "Ow." Everything was pain, more pain than he was used to since the last time Murdoc had hurt him so bad.

Noodle crouched down by the helpless singer, her green eyes clouded with sympathy. She help out a hand for him, offering him a small smile. "I'm sorry..." She said softly. Half of her wished that she had never seen what her band members had become, but the other half was telling her that she needed to be here to fix it.




Cy had followed Murdoc away from the scene before casting Noodle and 2D warning glares. She watched him curiously as he sat on the plastic that made up the beach, tilting her head to one side. There was clearly something weighing on his mind, something making him unwell. This upset the android deeply, it was her job to serve Murdoc and if he was unhappy, she wasn't doing her job correctly.

The bassist looked up at his android and smiled a little. "Noodle's come back. That means I'm semi-screwed for the rest of my life." He chuckled and looked out to vast expanse of sea that was before him. The way it glittered the Sun's reflection made him somewhat happy; it meant the world wasn't all bad. "Now I just gotta wait for Tubs to get his fat arse here and my entire life will come crumbling down. I've worked hard for this. Guess a little rum won't hurt," he continued.

Russel broke out of the water and looked at the pink island that wasn't even half a mile away. He could easily cover that in less than five minutes; his large size would do it. The drummer placed a hand over his eyes and regarded Point Nemo with some awe. Murdoc had built himself a nice home, secluded and away from humanity. Russel could almost pertain it as peaceful on the neon pink glowing island. Instead of going back underwater he remained where he was, floating and regarding and thinking over what he would say once he saw the bassist again. On the side he wondered is his baby girl and 2D were already there and waiting.

______________________________________________

2D sat up and pressed a hand to the side of his head as he tried to fight against the building migraine. His black eyes moved to Noodle and he became confused at her apology. "Not your fault Love. I didn' listen," he muttered as he took her offered hand. The singer cast his eyes towards the sea to his left and froze at the sight. He jerked his hand away from Noodle's and pointed to where he was looking. There was no doubting it; he was staring at a giant, Africain Americain drummer named Russel Hobbs. "N-Noodle! I-It's Russel!" The 32 year old's heart beat quickly in his chest as he realized his imagination was right.

Noodle spun around, her green eyes landing on the ocean and the drummer that approached the beach. She grinned. Russel would help fix Murdoc. But how would he react to the robot? Only time would tell. She ran to the edge of the water. "Russel! Russel!" She called, a wide grin plastered across her face.
---

Cy sat next to Murdoc, not knowing exactly what to say. She stared at him for a bit before the shouting and presence of yet another individual appeared in her radar. She snapped her head in the direction of the noise. "Sir. Another, very large, object is penetrating the borders on the beach."

"Wha?" He looked over at his android for a curious moment; trying to think of what may have set of an alert. It wasn't until he heard the sudden shouting of his drummer's name that he stood up and turned around to see what all the ruckus was. The bassist nearly collapsed when he saw the huge, mountainous drummer swimming towards his island almost leisurely. He couldn't make any sense of it; nothing seemed right. Only moments after his guitarist had showed up his drummer was making his way over. Not only that, but Murdoc couldn't grasp the huge size the drummer had grown to, it was beyond human comprehension. "Holy shit," he muttered to himself as he thought over how screwed he suddenly was.

Russel paused and looked down at the little head of purple hair that was calling out his name. He smile and lifted a giant hand in response before dropping it. His white eyes swept the beach behind her until he saw the shaking azure haired singer gaping at him like a fish. Had he really grown to be that big? The drummer shrugged it off and commenced with swimming towards the Beach, all the more pumped up to deal with the bassist and be reunited with his baby girl and the singer he'd come to think of as family.

__________________________________

The singer couldn't move from sheer shock that Russel had gotten to be the size of either a very small mountain or a very large hill. His heart pumped violently in his chest and he could feel the migraine getting worse each time his heart contracted. He had been so excited to think of Russel being a huge giant but had never actually wanted it to be true. "Although with him so big Murdoc would never think of beating you badly again," he thought to himself with a hint of glee. 2D gasped and stood up, with a wince, at the thought of how Murdoc would react. Then he became even more worried at how the android would do with the drummer of the band back.

Noodle was in awe of Russel's size. She had known he was big, but not that big. No matter, Russel was home and that's all that mattered at the moment. She smiled up at him, moving her bangs away from her green eyes to look at him better. She didn't notice 2D or the state he was in, she was too consumed with joy about the drummer returning.

-------------------------------------

Cy stood and loaded her rifle. Noodle and Russel were, as Murdoc had put it, threats to the Satanist and it was her job to protect him, at all costs. That's why he built her. She realized that her rifle would be insufficient against the drummer's size. She spotted a harpoon on the dock and grabbed it, running over to 2D and Noodle, pointing the harpoon at Russel. "You. State your business."

Murdoc watched his android dumbly for a moment before he realized what she was doing. "No! No! Hang on there love!" He chased after her only to pause and look up when he realized exactly how much larger Russel was up close; it was jaw dropping. If his drummer was that big and that big forever, there would be no way he could do anything ever again. He couldn't be King of his own personal island if a man that large was around. Then it hit him and he hid a smirk; lards couldn't fit in the house.

2D couldn't figure out what to do when he saw Cy run over to their area with a harpoon in her hands. He didn't know if he had the ability to attack her nor the ability to warn Russel. The singer was stuck and he really didn't want anyone to get hurt; it would hurt him too much. "Don't," he whispered weakly as he dropped to the pink plastic and held his throbbing head between his hands as he tried to shut out the world.

_________________________________________________________

The drummer blinked as he noticed another Noodle run up and point a harpoon at him; he knew he could break it if he wanted. He was bigger than some stupid blue whale. Russel was now the largest mammal on the planet not that anyone would really know. He then caught sight of the bassist and sneered, ignoring the replica Noodle's question and directed his own towards Murdoc. "You foul bastard! What did you do? What did you do?! Who the fuck is this little bugger? And what did you do?!" he asked loudly; but not too loudly. Russel knew that with his large size came a yell that would probably pop eardrums.
