“Uuuuggghhh!!!” Snarky Susie cried as she, Tierra, and Kerrie were going over their plans for the next episode of their hit YouTube talk show “Tea & Tolkien Thursdays“.
“What is it?” said Kerrie while looking up from the latest issue of Fantopedia Magazine. “Did someone demand that we start including some LGBT characters in our Tolkien fanfiction?”
“Worse,” said Snarky Susie as she clicked on a YouTube video. In the video, a small group of toys were apparently mocking the cast of “Tea & Tolkien Thursdays“, from several of them making some very pointed criticisms of the shows to saying some mean things about Humphrey the toy camel. “Just who do those guys think they are?”
“I hate to break it to guys, but these are the Shopkins!” said Tierra.
“Uuuggghhh! Shopkins!” yelled Snarky Susie.
“Yeah, it’s them all right,” Jaclyn said as she came into the room. “Those little toys are always causing trouble for everyone. Now they’re trying to take over YouTube!”
“I know,” said Tierra. “In fact, their motto is once you shop, you can’t stop. And most children and adults can’t get enough of them!”
“What are we going to do about this?” said Kerrie. “We can’t have them going around ruining things for everyone.”
“Not if we can stop them,” Jaclyn said as Mimsie and Andy approached them. “In fact, we should hold a meeting with them and demand that they put an end to their activities.”
“And what if they say no?” said Humphrey. “What then?”
“I already know that they published a video that mocked us for that fandom fight that we had last year,” said Andy.
“I’m still not over that,” said Mimsie.
“And I’m still not over us almost being unable to film that episode, but we can discuss that later,” said Tierra. “Right now, I just want to deal with those pesky Shopkins and their videos that are ruining our reputation.”
“And that’s what we’ll do,” said Jaclyn. “Let’s teach them a lesson about what happens when they try to take over the toybox.”
Well, that was easier said than done.
The next day, a group of Shopkins toys showed up at the studio. They were led by a small tart. Tartface glared at Jaclyn, saying, “So, I hear that you’re the head honcho around here.”
“I am,” said Jaclyn. “But why are you guys doing this?”
“Doing what?” said a shoe named Sneaky.
“Being a bunch of jerks, that’s what you’re doing,” said Humphrey.
“Don’t be such a loser, you dumb camel,” said a pea named Peasley.
“Susie, did you hear that?” said Humphrey. “Now they’re calling me a dumb loser!”
“Abeau to you, little Shopkin,” Snarky Susie snapped as she glared at Peasley. “Nobody calls my friend a loser except for ME!!”
“Yeah,” said Snarky Susie’s sister Bella. “Only I can call Humphrey a loser.”
“Uh, you’re not allowed to, Bella,” said Snarky Susie. “Jaclyn’s orders.”
“Jaclyn is such a control freak!” Bella snapped.
“I heard that!” Jaclyn yelled. “And I am NOT a control freak.”
At that, a carton named Milkton, a toilet named Tollitson, a hotdog named Frank, a muffin named Muffy, a bottle of olive named Olive, and a roll of sushi named Kimi walked into the studio, with Frank saying, “I hear that you’re the Littlest Pet Shop toys who are trying to take over YouTube, aren’t you?”
“Oh, you’re one to talk, little hotdog,” said Tierra. “Plus, it wasn’t nice to make fun of me just because I’m a Fisher-Price toy.”
“Yeah,” said Tollitson. “Don’t be such a potty mouth!”
“Let’s start with you,” said Kerrie.
Tollitson snarled in anger, but Jaclyn said, “Be careful, guys. I’m about to film this video and if there’s any more fighting, I’m going to have to put everyone on a 1-month probation.”
“You can’t do that,” Andy yelled as the others gasped in horror. “Snarky Susie and her friends have that Tea & Tolkien Show and we’re already trying to get the Leroy & Elena Show off the ground. So there’s no need for us to start any trouble with the Shopkins.”
“But you heard what they said about us,” said Bella. “They think that we’re bad actors.”
“I see,” said Jaclyn. “And I say that it’s time for us to put a stop to those guys before they ruin yet another thing on YouTube for us.”
“And why do you guys think you’re so great?” said Tartface. “Look at you guys; you have your LSPTube and scores of fans. What about us?”
“Yeah,” said Frank. “Why can’t we have Shopkinstube?”
“When can we be just as popular as Littlest Pet Shop toys?” said Tollitson.
Well, the rest of this story was about how the Shopkins and the Littlest Pet Shop toys got into a fight, but it’s unsuitable for publication.
