Since I hate leaving everyone thinking that I'm dead, here's something just to tide all over the DB stuff...cause truth be told, this one is really killer on me...mostly because I really want to be authentic so I've been having to use maps and stuff to get a sense of location and what-not.
Plus, it doesn't help life stuff keeps me away from trying to write this.

So, until then, enjoy this shtick...cause I know you might have certain...opinions since the last time I put up a teaser for a fight...things didn't go so well...

Death battle Carmen Sandiego vs Lupin III 3 by Volts48

Johnny Zealous: “Sorry for the wait folks, some unexpected issues came up along with a slow as molasses computing processor to actually get the fight made held up back…as well as the long legal process I went though after I accidentally over-dosed my co-host here which, by all miracles of science and medicine, is still alive.”

Lucas Zaboot: (barely sitting up, an IV bag in his arm and heavy bags under his eyes. To say he looks like hell would be a compliment, he looked more like hell chewed him up, didn’t like the taste and spit him out onto the concrete) “Happy to see you too jackass…” (he takes a drink from his water bottle as he forces himself to sit up, feeling woozy from doing so) “Whoo boy…this is gonna be a load of shit…”

Johnny Zealous: (clears his throat) “Ahem* so, our combatants are set, it’s time to end this long debate once and for all, it’s time for a-“

Lucas Zaboot: (cuts him off) “Commercial plug-in!”

Johnny Zealous: “Commercial plug i- wait, what?”

Lucas Zaboot: (manages to sit up as he runs his hands through his hair to properly compose himself) “Nnh…Yep…Seeing as we’re doing a battle involving thieves, we’ve got us a sponsor for this battle; Lifelock.”


Johnny Zealous: (confused and slightly surprised) “I-I don’t remember getting a call from them…”

Lucas Zaboot: “Now ya’ll be stupid to think thieves have to break into yer house to steal your stuff, nowadays, it’s as easy as clickin’ that picture of a hot babe or signin’ a petition to tell the government to go f*ck itself, once you click it, they’re inside stealin’ yer passwords, financial records, even those embarrassin’ pictures ya took of yerself in Tahiti. But with LifeLock on the job, they can’t even get past the front door to get your identity! Sign up today and for $9.99 a month, you’ll have a guarantee protection against losing your wallet, protection from the Black Market, reduced credit card offers, an alert system that warns ya if someone’s trying to steal your sh*t and a $1 million guarantee from LifeLock that if someone tries to steal your identity, experts are on standby to stop ‘em dead in their tracks…LifeLock, if ya sign up now, yer immediately in safe hands.”

Johnny Zealous: (stunned) “Did- did you just do a commercial plug-in…despite coming out of a coma and shouldn’t even be here?”

Lucas Zaboot: “Yep.”

Johnny Zealous: “I…wow Lucas, I’m…I’m actually impressed.”

Lucas Zaboot: “Well, I did learn from the best…” (nudges Johnny’s arm)

Johnny Zealous: “And compliments…towards me? I should over-dose you more often.”

Lucas Zaboot: “Don’t…seriously, nothing is more miserable than laying in a bed wasting away…yer lucky my drive to kick yer ass was stronger than just losing out, jackass…” (eventually slides back down on the table, nearly knocking his water bottle over) “nnngh…just until my head stops spinning…”

Johnny Zealous: “We can call cut and have you lay down if it’s a problem.”

Lucas Zaboot: “My heart nearly gave out in that quack’s attempt to wake me up with two fucking adrenaline shots, if I wanted to “take a fucking break,” I'd be six feet under. Start the fucking show…”

Johnny Zealous: “Oh, of course…anyways, no more delays, we set out bait for our thieves, let’s see if they’ve taken it, cause it’s Death Battle time!”

Lucas Zaboot: “So let’s get it on!” (forces his head in a comfortable position to watch the show)

-Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History - Washington D.C. United States - 10:05 PM, Present Day-

Night had settled on the Capital, but the street lights, cars and people walking about the streets showed no sign of the city going to sleep anytime soon. Though the National Mall area of DC was mostly deserted, the tourists had all gone back to their hotels and the only people out and about at this hour were either street cops, late-night joggers, protesters camping outside the Capitol building or really lost tourists.
Along Madison Drive Northwest, there were several museums that lined down the road, going from the Capitol Building down to the Washington Monument, in order, they were the National Gallery of Art, the building that held several Renaissance paintings as well as Vincent Van Gogh’s “Self-portrait,” the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History  which not only featured 126 million specimen of natural fossils, plants, animals and artifacts, but brought together 185 historical scientists a year for the purpose of historical study and the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, which housed Julia Child’s kitchen, the original Gettysburg Address and Star-Spangled Flag.
But for a lone figure who silently appeared in a flying vehicle to be lowered onto the roof of the National Museum of Natural History, scientific pursuit after visiting hours was clearly not the intent.

The lone figure, wearing a red coat, wide red hat and a yellow scarf to hide their face, silently cut a hole through the glass ceiling, taking special care not to trip the edges to set off the alarms as the figure slowly lowered down to the floor via a tether wire, stopping short of a few feet from the ground to pull out what appeared to be a lipstick case, only to fire off a jet of dust around to reveal bright red lasers on the floor before re-setting the lipstick gadget back to it’s normal setting. The figure grinned under the scarf the thief pulled back on the scarf to apply the lipstick to her own lips before she touched down on a safe spot of the floor, her red high-heeled shoes softly hitting the ground without making a sound. She detached herself from the hook as the line raised itself up a few feet back to her vehicle above as the thief looked up at the elephant model above her, grinned slightly before carefully stepping over the lasers as she made her way up the stairs to make her way to the Hall of Geology, Gems and Minerals.

This lone thief elegantly, yet carefully, walked through the hall, passing by the thousands of rocks, gems, meteorites, and even more gorgeous and outstanding jewelry that alone would be worth millions. But she passed by all of them, her eyes looking around for just one. She turned as her eyes darted to the entrance to the room she was looking for as her gaze fixed on the center of this room, stepping forward, yet treading carefully as she saw the lone light beaming down on the dark blue shimmering jewel in the center display.
The jewel, in particular, had a fascinating history to it, purchased in India some time in the mid-1600s by a French merchant by the name of Jean Baptiste Tavernier, he sold it to King Louis XIV in 1668 and was cut down in 1673 and worn by the monarchy as a necklace until it was stolen in 1792 until it resurfaced in 1812 in the possession of King George IV until he sold it to pay his debts in 1830. The diamond was then shuffled off from owner to owner until landing in thee hands of Mrs Evalyn Walsh McLean of Washington D.C. in 1910 where she instructed the diamond be reset to be adorned on a diamond necklace, as the diamond was now seen today, before Mrs. McLean passed away in 1947, having her collection of jewelry to be purchased by Harry Winston Incorporated in 1949, along with the Star of the East Diamond, the Star of the South diamond and the green diamond known as The McLean Diamond. Harry Winston Inc. premiered this diamond for years until it was eventually donated to the Smithsonian Institution and had been in their possession ever since.
Despite the many names it received over it’s long journey, it was only known by one: “The Hope Diamond.”

But before this red-adorned thief could step inside, another figure stepped out from behind the display with wires in their hands, humming in what was clearly a man’s voice. The woman stood in the shadows silently as she looked in with a bit of surprise, this was not part of her plan. As she stepped forward, she realized she had stepped on a security guard’s uniform, she put two and two together and realized this stranger had taken the place of a security guard and used this deception to sneak inside to also get his hands on the Hope Diamond as well.
If there was anything this red-clad thief couldn’t stand, it was competition.

She eventually stepped forward, her heels clicking on the tile floors, causing the other thief to spin around with a gun in his hand.
“Hold it!”
“Now, now, there’s no need for that…” The woman said calmly as she stepped into the direct light to reveal her long dark hair to the other thief. the other thief lowered his gun and grinned.
“Well now, this IS becoming an even better score. You lost ma’am?” The other thief said in a suave manner.
“No, but you can hand me that diamond, make it easier for me to walk out with it.” The woman said smoothly as she carefully stepped around the display, keeping her eyes on this thief, studying him over to see what kind of thief he was.
“Well, under any usual circumstances, I’d be more than happy to oblige. But I’ve been staking this place out for over a month and I can’t let some drop-dead gorgeous brunette like you ruin all that.” The man said as he snipped and cut a few wires before the light inside the display shut off. He grinned as he stood up and opened the top of the display, reaching his hand down to grant he jewel. “But tell ya what, babe. I’ll steal any other gem in this place for you. Star of India? Egyptian crowns? For you, I’d even take the Carmen Lúcia Ruby, it’d match your coat.”
“Flattering offer, but I already have it.” The woman said as she held up the ring she had in her pocket, the male thief mused.
“My, my, you ARE a wonder. So what are you doing after thi- Hey!” The male thief called out as his hand hit the bottom, but instead of a jewel, he hit a hologram. In that instant, the doors to the room closed behind them as the lights went out, except for the center, which shone a bright monogram blue.

“What did you do?!” the red-clad thief said in frustration to the male thief who backed away from the display and looked around for an exit.
“I don’t know! This wasn’t in the security schematics!” The male thief said as the center display opened up, the holographic hope diamond disappeared as a small pole popped out and shone a red scan on the room, stopping on the male thief first as it scanned the top of his head going down to his shoes before giving a beep.
“Subject One Scanned. Arsène Lupin the Third; Confirmed.” The pole chirped in it’s mechanical tone as the woman turned and stared at the male thief in disbelief, along with disappointment if such an expression could be accomplished.
“You? You’re Lupin the Third?” The male thief placed his hands on the edge of his jacket, clearly very proud to know his reputation garnered this familiarity.
“In the flesh.” He said confidently before the small pole turned and scanned the red-clad female from head to toe before giving off the same electronic beep.
“Subject Two Scanned. Carmen Sandiego; Confirmed.” The pole chirped before is slipped back into the pedestal, Lupin, his jaw hanging adrift in surprise, stared at this woman in awe.
“Unbelievable. THE Carmen Sandiego? I should feel honored to be in your presence.” Lupin said with a hint of flirting in his tone, Carmen just stood there.
“Good to see my reputation is more than just my appearance.”
“I wouldn’t say that. Your beauty doesn’t do the rumors justice.”
“Oh please.” Carmen rolled her eyes as the Hope Diamond display fell apart and opened up to reveal a bright blue holographic emblem with the letters D and B floating inside. 
“Welcome, fair contestants. We were hoping this would draw your attention.” The voice was also mechanical, but clearly manufactured to be hidden from recognition.
“You drew us here intentionally?” Lupin said to the hologram, looking around for an exit still. “For what reason?”
“You two are the greatest thieves in the world.” The holographic logo replied, “So we have orchestrated a little test to prove which of you is the best. A little game if you will.”
“Games have rules.” Carmen Sandiego said sternly, from her past experience, she hated being used to acquire things without the thrill of the crime attached to it.
“But of course.” The voice replied as the hologram changed to show a holographic globe of the world. “The game is easy; if you want the Hope Diamond, you and a 3-man crew of your choosing will steal three artifacts around the world, upon stealing the third artifact, you will receive the Diamond. Whoever can steal the most of these artifacts before the other wins the game and receives the title of “Greatest Thief In The World.” The hologram shifted to show a holographic crown. Carmen Sandiego just stood there unamused but Lupin’s eyebrows raised in anticipation.
“So, I have to steal things before this fetching lady can do it? Why even have a competition? We could just run through this museum and steal-“
“Ah, but we want very specific artifacts, to find them, you must solve the riddles we have made in order to find the next one.” The hologram interrupted, shifting to the image of a present wrapped with a bow as Carmen gave a smirk. Riddles and thieving? Now this was sounding like her kind of game.
“Well, since Mr. Lupin would rather play it safe, I’ll accept your challenge.” Carmen Sandiego said with a clear level of condescension towards Lupin.
“Hmmph, I’m not one to back away from a challenge. Open up the table, Lupin is going to play.” Lupin responded as the hologram blinked for a moment before shifting back to the DB logo.
“Listen closely because we won’t repeat this again.”

“Go South by Southwest until you hit 28, go any farther and your ride has driven off without you.“ The hologram said to the two master thieves.
“South by southwest? Huh?” Lupin said confused.
“Oh and another thing.” The hologram said at the very moment it finished, the doors opened up as lights shone through and the sound of a helicopter and sirens were made apparent. “The authorities have been informed of your location.” The two thieves turned back to the door as Carmen could see from past the railing several police officers entering the west hall to search for them before she turned back to the hologram. “You’d better move, unless you aim to die at 45. Buena suerte amigos!” The hologram finished before it finally blinked out and disappeared. 
With that, the two thieves turned and looked each other square in the face, their eyes squinted with determination.
“May the best man win!” Arsène Lupin III called to the Woman in Red.
“We’ll see about that.” Carmen Sandiego replied to the Wolf, a grin appearing on her face for the thrilling chase to come.


Boy, it's been a while since I reviewed anything...what should I do for penance of this crime? 

9 deviants said Review some Disney Sequels to make up for the lack of sequels in April. (sorta owe you all that don't I?)
5 deviants said Review "Constantine" (Keanu Reeves trying to play a character whose supposed to be English, deadpan and a badass combatant of the occult? Oh how many jokes can I get from that?)
5 deviants said Screw the reviews, get back to Death Battle, monkey!
4 deviants said Review "Tentacolino" (...oh GOD...please no...)
3 deviants said Um...Nachos!
2 deviants said Um...I dunno, surprise us or something? I don't really care...
No deviants said Finish the review of "Highlander II: The Quickening" (again, sort of owe you all that one too...but come on! 12 minutes people!!)

Me? Well, to be frank; I'm just an 21 year old film-making student who is hoping to learn the arts of the trade so I can create and receive an Academy Award for making a film that will make you all think.

I am 21 years old and I have a few student films under my belt, very little experience but I'd be damned if I didn't tell you I am an incredibly bright person who wants to offer the world something unique and something that isn't tired and cliched.

I have Autism but I am a very high-functioning person who uses his disability as a gift even when there are days it feels like a curse.

I enjoy playing video games, watching movies with a good well-written story with great actors and good music, reading good books when I feel like it and otherwise trying to motivate myself to actually do some damn work around here.

Apart from that, I don't try to reveal too much about myself, I'm choosing to try and keep myself below the radar. Have fun with all my deviant crap! ^^

Your thoughts? I was rooting dor DK!

Never cared for either franchises so I had no cares for the fight in general.

...I have no idea how to respond to that.

Just smile and nod, it'll clear anything else and leave an awkward air in the room.

Hey, Volts? I want to start a movie critic series called the Cinematic Metalhead, where I call myself a Cinematic Metalhead because I love movie and listen to metal all the time. I thought it would be cool having me as a metalhead review movies. How do you put pictures and videos on your reviews?
Volts48 Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2015  Hobbyist Filmographer
Same advice I was given, this journal:…
JeffersonAirship Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2015
Hey, Volts? I know this might be a bad time to propose this... or, alternatively, it might be the best time, since it might just perk you up!

How would you like to be a co-partner on a new project, since you're the only other person in the DB community who can be called a cinephile? 
Volts48 Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2015  Hobbyist Filmographer
Sorry for not responding any sooner, I've been plugged into the editing bay all day on multiple projects that came my way.

But I managed to salvage this together in that past 12 hours. Apologies for the lousy quality of the video.…
JeffersonAirship Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2015
Oh my God, man... that was awesome! I can't believe you made this...

Aww, schucks, you didn't have to. 

But, yeah, that idea I had... 

I call it "The Capsule." 

Basic pitch; two people discuss and debate one movie or two, and whether or not they deserve to belong in a hypothetical time capsule for the express purpose of preserving art that has best defined humanity, for either our successors to find or for aliens to study. 

For instance, one "episode" could be - say - a discussion on which was the better music-themed and stylized cinematic take on Romeo & Juliet, West Side Story or Romeo + Juliet. Or we could debate Barton Fink (I pro, you against). Or which film best encapsulates a generation or a genre, that sort of thing. 

We'd have a moderating ensuring no tangents are taken and everything runs at a good clip. I'd then edit the discussion, present it on DA, and ultimately ask the audience which side they agree with by voting on some pole or other. It'd be all in good, lighthearted, fun. 

What do you think? We'd even bring in a guest or two if they have a strong opinion on this or that movie.
Volts48 Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2015  Hobbyist Filmographer
Sounds cool, sadly I'm busy this week (got a call for morning shoots). I can try to get online to help out with this concept on the days where my mornings aren't in the industrial side of town or when I'm not at my day job.
