Character Dialogue

MickeyHOC

Order in The Crossers' Room !!

---

It's dawn. The members of The Council are sitting across from each other in their golden chairs. They stare at each other in silence. Nine leaders. Nine worlds.

NalaHOC

Okay Mr. Mouse. What do you propose ? It's been two hours and we haven't found a single reasonable agreement yet. Now as much as I love the comfort of those chairs, I'm getting a bit bored here.

MickeyHOC

Crossers, we need to think this through. What we're dealing with today is of the utmost importance. It's a crisis. We cannot allow ourselves to have failed a single one of our calculations, or this could mean the end of our nine worlds.

JudyHOC

Time. Time. We're loosing time. We need to initiate Project Escalatus immediately.

NalaHOC

Our citizens are scared Mr. Mouse. Scared citizens lead to panic and panic leads to riots. The last thing we need at this very instance are civil wars. We cannot afford to have our dimensions at their weakest, especially in a time of crisis.

---

The leaders turn their attention to Mickey Mouse. As director of The Council, the final call lays in his hands. He stares blankly at the red velvet carpet that lays under his feet. A few seconds later, the leaders shift their eyes toward Mrs. Hopps.

JudyHOC

What ?

FelixHOC

Mrs. Hopps, you are the second in command. It is clear that Mr. Mouse has yet come up with an alternative. But please, do not set Escalatus off. The probability of the project working is 0.8%.

MickeyHOC

Yet this place is our only hope. We're living proofs that Escalatus could work. We made it, we all survived. Look at us, all reunited in this room. Now all we have to do is to repeat this operation on a galactic scale.

AngerHOC

You pighead ! That's all we have to do ? ALL WE HAVE TO DO ?!! This isn't a GAME OF MARIO KART ! Everything is at stake. Our populaces were seperated in nine dimensions for a reason. Because we don't belong together. Even if the inhabitants of our worlds survived Escalatus, we would murder each other there. Look around you. Nala is a lioness, Buzz a toy, Madame Leota a ghost, Felix a piece of game data, and I AM AN EMOTION ! DOES ANYONE HERE REALIZE what Project Escalatus means ? We only achieved this operation on nine people. What we're talking about here is to replicate this operation on billions of inhabitants, in an instant. It will kill them all ! Not to mention, in the past year, this Council alone saved 87 other dimensions from dimensional invasions. Not only do we owe it to our people to protect them, but we owe it to our neighboring dimensions to defend them. If we die, the Universe dies with it. When he's done with us, we all know that he won't stop there. And we all know that the Mickey Mouse & Friends dimension will not be able to sustain more than the inhabitants of our nine worlds. What then ? CLOSE OUR EYES AND LET ALL THE REST DIE ?!!

MickeyHOC

Enough Anger !! We're all frightened. I'm not saying everyone is going to make it, but what other choice do we have ? We've searched for every alternative that is out there. He is coming. If we don't take action quickly, he WILL bring about the end of the Universe, and of all dimensions. Having possession of the Omega, he is the most dangerous living being alive.

---

Flynn stands up abruptly and slams his fists on the table.

FlynnHOC

We call ourselves saviors, but we're in fact just a bunch of losers ! We should all be ashamed, especially you Mr. Mouse ! Apparently none of our dimensions can count on either one of us. I am out.

JudyHOC

Flynn, Headman of Tangled, and member of The Council, I order you to stay. This meeting is not over.

FlynnHOC

Well guess what ? I formally renounce the title of Headman of Tangled. In a few days, none of this will have any importance anymore, as we will all be dead. Except you Mr. Mouse. You might have forgotten, but we don't all live in a dimension that is centered at the very core of the Universe. You'll live. Your family will live. You call this choice to be a burden, yet you're not the one who'll pay the consequences when Escalatus fails to work. I prefer spending my last days with my beloved Rapunzel, instead of with a bunch of fools.

BuzzHOC

So that's how it all ends ? Us being cowards ? I swore to protect this divine galaxy until my very last breath, and I will not wait for a numbskull in a Red Is the New Black outfit to annihilate it all.

MadameLeotaHOC

It's not your call.

BuzzHOC

It's not yours either.

MickeyHOC

GUYS ! Where is Wasabi ?

FelixHOC

I thought he was right there..

---

All of a sudden, the doors of The Crossers' Room open. Wasabi stands at the entrance, while the eight leaders stare at him. In his left hand is a blue and white striped remote switch with a red button at the center.

MickeyHOC

Oh my...the Escalatus' switch. You went in the storage room ! None of you were supposed to find it until we had made a decision. Wasabi...put that down. Do not do anything stupid. You hear me ? It's far too early for us to make any decision.

---

Wasabi stands still and doesn't respond, nor obey. He stares blankly at the other members of The Council.

MickeyHOC

Wasabi. Put the remote down. Do not touch that button ! Wasabi, drop it ! I said, DROP IT !!

---

Wasabi contemplates the other members, his hand shivering, unsure on whether or not he should thrust the button. Tears start streaming down his face. The fate of nine dimensions reside in his hands. He counts down from ten. Eight. Seven. Six. Suddenly, the handles of the doors rotate, opening the doors once again. Panic spreads across everyone's faces as they notice that all members are already in the room.

MadameLeotaHOC

Do you think it's him ?

JudyHOC

No. It can't be.

---

The doors open widely.

NalaHOC

Oh my God.

---

A man dressed in a purple vest and baggy pants enters the room.

AladdinHOC

I DID IT ! Is this the place ? Oh yes, it must be. Did I make it !?

MickeyHOC

Who are you ? This can't be happening, it's impossible !

JudyHOC

Arms up ! Don't move !! Name ! Now !

---

The nine leaders stare in disbelief at the stranger. Wasabi regains his seat and sets down the remote switch on the table. The stranger makes a step toward it.

JudyHOC

I said, DON'T MOVE !!

AladdinHOC

I'm coming in peace ! My name is Aladdin, of the dimension of the same title. I have come at The House Of Crossers to speak with the nine members of The Council.

MadameLeotaHOC

No ! That's impossible. No one is aware of our existence. Especially not someone from a dimension out of our galaxy. The Council, The House Of Crossers, all of it, it's an undisclosed organization.

MickeyHOC

Rule #8 of The Council. No one is allowed to reveal the existence of The House Of Crossers and The Council to any living being in the Universe. Any breach of its existence revealed to the public shall become a top priority to shut down, by all means necessary. Execution may follow.

AladdinHOC

This is awesome ! You really are as ruthless as I thought. What's the writing on the remote switch ? P. Escalatus ?

---

Mr. Mouse furrows his brows, and hits a button under the table that instantly shuts the doors and locks them. The stranger keeps smiling, amazed at the room.

AladdinHOC

Golden chairs. Red velvet carpet. Hidden buttons under your table of platinum. This place is magnificent !

MickeyHOC

It's a place that exists beyond space and time. No one is allowed to enter it, nor had we ever planned to have a visitor. We created it for the sole purpose...

AladdinHOC

...of reuniting all nine leaders of the nine worlds into one common place. No matter how different all of you are. It's genius ! An animal, an emotion, a ghost, a human, all altering your selves into similar physical forms. I know all about you guys. I know about the work you've done here. Saving dimensions, helping the populaces of your worlds in whatever way you can, trading materials between them, I know the stories.

MickeyHOC

How ?

AladdinHOC

How is not the question.

MickeyHOC

Well if you wanted to start a fan club, it wasn't by coming here that you'd do yourself any good. If you know all about us, you know that you just signed your own death warrant. However, I don't believe that you're that stupid. Tell us Aladdin, why have you come here ?

AladdinHOC

Because we have a common enemy. And you all know his name.

JudyHOC

Jafar.

MadameLeotaHOC

Jafar.

NalaHOC

Jafar.

---

A feeling of fear washes over Aladdin's face, upon hearing the name of his nemesis.

AladdinHOC

Indeed, that's him.

MickeyHOC

Wait..how do you know Jafar ?

AngerHOC

He's lying !! This is nonsense !

AladdinHOC

I know Jafar, because he comes from my world.

---

A long and heavy silence reigns in the room. The members eye each other, back and forth.

AladdinHOC

That's why I've come. I can't defeat him alone, and you can't either. But together, we can stop him.

AngerHOC

Hey new guy ! You think you can just knock on our doors, and expect us to help you ?

AladdinHOC

Yes.

AngerHOC

Well you've come at the wrong place. Right Mr. Mouse ? Mr. Mouse ?

MickeyHOC

First, answer our questions.

AngerHOC

You're seriously going to consider letting him help us ?!

MickeyHOC

What do you know about us ?

AladdinHOC

The 1st galaxy ever created, yours. Reuniting the 9 worlds of Zootopia, Mickey Mouse & Friends, Toy Story, Haunted Mansion, The Lion King, Big Hero 6, Tangled, Inside Out, and Wreck-It Ralph. Nobody is aware that you even exist, not in any dimension as far as I know. Yet somehow, the most dangerous man alive caught up with your work. Your galaxy, your dimensions. He knows all about you, and he envies it all. He's a very dangerous criminal on my Earth. He answers to the name of Jafar. What I don't understand is how you've heard about him.

MickeyHOC

We like to keep our information, confidential.

FelixHOC

Mrs. Hopps ? Say something.

JudyHOC

Mr. Mouse, as far as I see things here, Aladdin could be a very valuable asset. What more do we need to defeat Jafar if we have someone who comes from his world ? Who can help us think like him. We can beat Jafar at a game he hasn't even began to understand he started. If what he says is true, that means he can help us defeat Jafar when he comes invading our galaxy.

MickeyHOC

No.

NalaHOC

No ? What do you mean, no ?

MickeyHOC

He cannot be trusted. He shall be imprisoned here at The House Of Crossers, until we have proof that what he says is legit.

BuzzHOC

You were titled Leader of The Council because you swore to fight for our dimensions, no matter the cost, no matter the risk. We have the chance to protect our homelands right in front of us and you refuse the help ? Mr. Mouse ?!

AladdinHOC

We all know that as powerful as you all are, this war cannot be defeated by the knowledge of only one galaxy.

JudyHOC

Mr. Mouse, you better think twice on that decision. If we end up activating Escalatus and that it fails, the blood will be on your hands. The thought that you could have prevented the disappearance of eight populaces will be on you. The regret, the guilt, you will feel it all. Now are you sure you're ready to give up on our last hope at preparing for Jafar's imminent invasion ?

MickeyHOC

...Mmmm..fine. He can stay, but he's on my watch. What do you want to know Aladdin ?

AladdinHOC

Thank you Mr. Mouse, you don't know how much this means to me. Let's get started. First of all, how do you know Jafar's coming ?

MickeyHOC

Two weeks ago, Jafar hacked into each of our dimensions' mainframes, including into our personal server here, at The House Of Crossers.

AladdinHOC

He hacked into the server of a place that exists beyond space and time ? How is that even possible ? Jafar's not a professional hacker, he must have had some help.

JudyHOC

If he was able to do that, what else can he do ?

MickeyHOC

He made a recording. A videotape of himself. With access to the mainframes, he also got access to the billions of computers, phones, television stations, and other forms of media channels scattered across the nine worlds of our galaxy. The videotape kept broadcasting in a loop, no way to stop it. It took 16 hours for us to get back the control of the mainframes. As of today, everyone knows Jafar's name. Panic has been spreading ever since.

AladdinHOC

Can I see it ? The video ?

MickeyHOC

...Sure.

---

Mr. Mouse presses on a button underneath the table. In a matter of seconds, the front wall slides to the left and disappears into the side wall. An immense screen behind it is uncovered. He gets ahold of a remote that was laying on the table and presses on a few buttons. Suddenly, the tape pops up and starts playing. In the middle of the screen is Jafar's face, sending a death stare to his audience.

Template:HOCJafar

I present myself, my name is Jafar, and I come from the dimension Aladdin. That's right, another galaxy. Some would call me an alien, some would call me a myth. I call myself...your worst nightmare. All nine of your dimensions shall discover the true meaning of horror. Monstrosity. Desolation. Havoc. Fear. Your little galaxy of yours will be nothing but ashes once I march into your worlds. A serpent who will poison your lands and make it my home. No one will be invulnerable to my wrath. Soon, the Omega will guide me into your lands and once I get there, I will butcher and slaughter every last one of you. Jafar. My name is...Jafar. And I am coming for you. A month, that's all you have. Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.

---

Mr. Mouse stops the video and turns back to face Aladdin.

MickeyHOC

That's it.

AladdinHOC

That thing he was talking about...the Omega. What is it ?

MickeyHOC

The most powerful weapon in the Universe. Its creator is unknown, but it's presumed to have been created by an Immortal. It can transport any human, animal, or object from a dimension to another, and adjust them to fit the new standards of that world. In other words, Jafar could be able to transport himself in a dimension of emotions, as much as in a dimension of toys, game datas, or animals, all with the ability to survive and fit in each. His physical form and DNA would be altered to merge with the laws and physics of that world.

AladdinHOC

If that video was shown to every single citizen in your nine worlds, then they must know about the other eight dimensions in your galaxy ? Am I right ?

NalaHOC

Our people are very aware of the concept of the 9 dimensions. Our Rations Center, which you know about, is a public organisation. It transports and trades resources and foods between dimensions. Non-living materials, foods, or electronics are much easier to send from a dimension to another than living beings. Their atoms can easily be altered. Inhabitants, on the other hand, could be physically or mentally hurt if they were sent through such a careless process that non-living materials go through. However, nobody knows about us. If people started to figure out that dimensional travelling is possible, chaos would erupt. The craziest minds would put themselves to work, and our economy would fall in mayhem. People would want answers, answers that we're not willing to share.

AladdinHOC

With Jafar in possession of the Omega, I'm afraid I can only fill you in with my knowledge. However, I cannot guarantee you that it'll be enough to stop him. What about that big plan of yours, Project Escalatus ? What is it ?

AngerHOC

Back at it again...

MadameLeotaHOC

It's a project, a theory. Before we lost possession of the real Omega eight years ago, we built the Escalatus. A replication of the Omega. The Omega can transport billions of species at a time between dimensions. Our replication can only transport no more than a dozen. We took some risks and multiplied the power of the Escalatus to a level that even we barely understand. If it works and its effects are a perfect counterpart to those of the Omega's, it could transport all living beings from the eight dimensions to the Mickey Mouse & Friends dimension.

AladdinHOC

The core of the Universe. It's brilliant. Jafar wouldn't be able to attack it, we'd have more time to prepare for his imminent arrival, and all inhabitants from the nine dimensions would be safe. What if it doesn't work ?

AngerHOC

We're trying to send billions of emotions, animals, toys, ghosts, and humans to one dimension. A common dimension. The problem is, the probability of it working is 0.8%. If it doesn't work and we cannot restrain the power of the Escalatus once activated, it would create a massive explosion.

AladdinHOC

How big ?

AngerHOC

Galactic-wide. The end of all nine dimensions.

AladdinHOC

Nine ? What about Mickey's one ?

MickeyHOC

Indeed, mine would survive at first. Since my dimension is at the core of the Universe, the shield that is generated by the core would protect it from the explosion. However, my dimension would not be able to survive on its own. It has become dependent of its eight neighboring dimensions. Without a functioning Rations Center, we would be estimated a survival rate of six months. After that, all rations would be gone, and it would be the end of my dimension as well, ending our galaxy.

FelixHOC

Now, question to you Aladdin. I think we've answered enough. How did you get here ?

AladdinHOC

When Jafar broke out of the Prison of Agrabah, I launched a worldwide arrest warrant on him. A few months later, guards found his layer and where he had been hiding all this time. We found documents, maps, information on your dimensions. On you. He knows everything about you. Your names, your families, your dimensions, your Rations Center, your House Of Crossers, The Council, the mainframes, everything. That's when I figured out that he was up to something a lot bigger then taking control of The Sultan's Palace , something galactic-wide. It was all there. I studied you a lot, the rest was blurry. Long story short, I got there.

AngerHOC

That is complete bull..

MickeyHOC

Enough Anger. Aladdin, you owe us more explanations. Still, time is running out. We need to find a settlement. All ten of us. Any ideas on how we get to one ?

NalaHOC

A vote. Whether or not we commence Project Escalatus. Aladdin is of no help, he doesn't know a lot more than us. When it comes to battling Jafar, we'll might be able to use his knowledge. But as of now, we still need to come to a settlement.

WasabiHOC

Are you sure ? What if...what if it fails ?

NalaHOC

Wasabi, you know we have to do it.

AngerHOC

I'm done talking. Against. This is suicide. None of us we'll make it. We all know it. No one here is brave enough to admit that to themselves.

JudyHOC

For. I have faith Anger, and faith is what we have to hold on to. We need to trigger off Escalatus.

BuzzHOC

Same, I'm for. Whatever happens, it seems like the end result is the same, we'll die. So...faith ?

---

Suddenly, all members turn their eyes to Madame Leota.

MadameLeotaHOC

I don't know yet, keep voting.

FelixHOC

I'm out. You state that Escalatus is the key to save us all. You're lying to yourselves. Escalatus is solely a way for all of you to walk out on your responsibilities. Abandoning The Council's prime mission.

NalaHOC

Sorry Felix, but I share a different perspective on this. The Escalatus is our only hope. I'm for. Madame Leota ?

MadameLeotaHOC

We are clueless of what will happen. We're smart, but to state that we succeeded in replicating the weapon of an Immortal is untruthful. Nevertheless, I prefer dying with my people then witnessing their genocide. Or worse, witnessing their servitude to Jafar. Count me in.

AngerHOC

You are all so weak ! You disgust me !

WasabiHOC

I'm not voting. I'm sorry....I just can't.

FlynnHOC

Wasabi, you imbecile ! You're letting down your dimension, an embarrassment to Big Hero 6's legacy, that's what you are. You're not a leader. You don't deserve to represent them at this table. As for Escalatus, I am definitely against it. There is always a better way. Whatever it takes, armies, lands, resources, I will pay the price. I swore to defend my people day in and day out. Escalatus is the coward's way.

JudyHOC

Four people are for the initiation of Escalatus. Three are against. Mr. Mouse, as Leader of The Council, the final say is yours. Please state your position.

MickeyHOC

I have our galaxy's best interests at heart. Every decision I've made since the creation of The Council has not been easy to make. Today, I am confronted to the hardest one yet. The eradication of our galaxy lays in my hands. If the Escalatus fails, then farewell my friends. I'll see you on the other side. But if we triumph, I promise you that we will reclaim our lands from Jafar. Faith in Escalatus. Faith in this vote. Faith in our galaxy. And for those reasons, I call for the activation of Escalatus.

AngerHOC

NO !!!! YOU CAN'T DO THAT !! YOU'RE GOING TO KILL US !! YOU LIAR !! IT'S ALWAYS BEEN ABOUT YOU !! YOU JUST WANT TO PROTECT YOURSELF, HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO US !!?

MickeyHOC

I am sorry Anger if the end result isn't as satifsying as what you wanted it to be, but our leaders have spoken.

---

The eight members start yelling at each other. Mr. Mouse stays motionless in his seat, as he contemplates his image in the screen. The falling of The Council. Disruption and alteractions. He turns around to face Aladdin who nods his consent.  Mr. Mouse extends his hand and grabs the remote. The eight leaders of The Council stay oblivious to Mr. Mouse's action.

MickeyHOC

THAT'S ENOUGH ! Look at you guys. What happened to staying civil with one another ?

---

The room calms itself down, as the leaders perceive that Mr. Mouse has got ahold of the remote.

MickeyHOC

I am sorry that we had to come to this. Sincerely. We will now continue ahead with The Council's mission statement.

---

The eight members nod in silence. Aladdin observes tranquilly from a corner of the room.

MickeyHOC

We, members of the 9 dimensions, swore allegiance and devotion to Our Council. We pledge to guide the residents of our homelands through the values and ideals we comply to. May the Immortals honor our decision, crucial or trivial, as we promise to fulfill our duty through legitimacy and leadership. Estroum. Halaba. Marveachy. Laboorisa. My responsibility.

JudyHOC

Estroum. Halaba. Marveachy. Laboorisa. My responsibility.

BuzzHOC

Estroum. Halaba. Marveachy. Laboorisa. My responsibility.

MadameLeotaHOC

Estroum. Halaba. Marveachy. Laboorisa. My responsibility.

NalaHOC

Estroum. Halaba. Marveachy. Laboorisa. My responsibility.

WasabiHOC

Estroum. Halaba. Marveachy. Laboorisa. My responsibility.

FlynnHOC

Estroum. Halaba. Marveachy. Laboorisa. My responsibility.

AngerHOC

Estroum. Halaba. Marveachy. Laboorisa. My responsibility.

FelixHOC

Estroum. Halaba. Marveachy. Laboorisa. My responsibility.

MickeyHOC

Thank you. See you there.

---

Mr. Mouse gives one last look toward the eight leaders of the dimensions. Fear, glory, and freedom reigns in the room. Slowly, he presses on the button of the remote switch. EUNICE, the AI of The Council begins a countdown.

EUNICE

Activation of Escalatus in 30 seconds......Activation of Escalatus in 15 seconds.

---

The members watch each other with desperation. As they sit around the table, Mrs. Hopps grabs Mr. Mouse's hand. Nala grabs Flynn's hand, who grabs Wasabi's. Gradually, all eight leaders grab each other's hands in gesture of solidarity.

EUNICE

Activation of Escalatus in 10 seconds...5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

JudyHOC

Here we go.

EUNICE

Escalatus activated.
