How will Brandon defeat his nemesis Caffiendo? Who is the girl who left the message on the phone? Who is Sergeant Kafenfumph? And what on earth does an owl have to do with all of this?
We continued our Brandon Generator adventures by watching episode 2 of Brandon Generator. We thought it was a great episode, or to use Cameron’s words ”it was epic!” Some of us think that Brandon is trapped in a world inside his head, others believe he is dreaming or that he is in a new world of made of his creations. The owl has had us all totally confused.
We have been writing what we think happens next, by writing stories and creating comic strips. We have very busy here at Learning Cloud HQ (secret location, can’t be confirmed).
A wee taster of our wonderful writing:
“It was the morning when Brandon awoke from his coffee induced coma. He was clearly dizzy, but not dizzy enough to avert his eyes from his computer screen which unusually had 109 pages rather than the normal 0. He suddenly noticed a faint flicker of orange light, he traced it to its source, it was his mobile phone. The voice mail symbol was flashing, he listened to it, someone had left him a mysterious message…
He ran out of his rundown apartment and sprang into his car with one thought floating through his mind like fish in the sea; who sent the voicemail? And who wrote the pages on the computer? Did he write them himself? In his old car, that was as yellow as the sun on a summer’s day, he drove around town searching for a gas station for fuel, but on his journey he glanced at a shadowy figure running through the street and into an alley. Brandon paused in shock, was it she who had sent the message? As he arrived at the petrol station he saw the shadowy figure again. He thought he was hallucinating, a shiver of fear travelled down his spine.
Later that night, he went into the street for an evening stroll, the same shadowy figure reappeared and turned to approach him. Brandon dashed to get into the elevator to his apartment. The figure wasn’t human it was coffee, pure coffee…” Robert McD
“Brandon found himself faced with a hideous monster with small black beady eyes that could look into your soul and pull out your deepest secrets. The monster smelt strongly of coffee, his teeth had been rotted away from caffeine overload, his watery skin was a deep brown mud coffee colour.Brandoncould feel his heart beat and the blood stream through his ears. He felt sick, there was a lump in his throat the size of a tennis ball, he tried to swallow, but it just made him feel even more nauseous. His eyes started to water at the smell of coffee. Was this how he was going to die? Killed by the thing he had once loved so dearly?” Niamh P
“Caffiendo’s hot breath grazed Brandon’s rough face. Caffiendo didn’t do anything, he simply stood there, his face –if you could call it a face- was about four centimetres away from Brandon’s. Brandon gazed up at him with terror. What was he meant to do? Everything was so clear, yet everything still felt so foggy. As if nothing existed. Although, Brandon was pretty sure this was happening. But then again, no one can be too sure of their surroundings, right? Brandon’s mind felt as if it was going crazy, he was questioning himself, he was thinking of the impossible. Surely he was dreaming? There was no acceptable reason for what was going on.” Emily & Yasmin
“The beast was before him, slobbering and steaming. All of a sudden, a loud rumble revealed a stampede of monsters streaming from his sketch pad led by one of the largest monsters. They ran forward towards the Caffiendo monster and began to drink…” Lewis M
” The monster was before his eyes he couldn’t believe what had happened. He thought fast before it was too late, then looked into the sky. What could he see? It was a huge owl flying above him. Surprised he kept looking at it and forgot all about the monster. Then all of a sudden, it grabbed him, he didn’t know what to do, he was hoping help would come he shouted “HELP ME!” Nobody came.
Then all of a sudden the owl swooped down and grabbed him out of Caffiendo’s claws. Just as he was feeling relieved that it saved him, the owl dropped him down from high up in the sky and then he knew he was in trouble. What should he do? He closed his eyes and after a while he felt that he had stopped falling. Just before he touched the ground he opened his eyes and there was nothing there, he was confused, he was floating in the air. It was as if like something was holding him up. He dropped to the ground into what seemed like a puddle…” Skye M
“… but who was the man standing behind the beast?
“I am Sergeant Kafenfumph, I am here to kill you beast,” boomed a voice.
“You cannot kill me in my world,” growled the beast.
“Are you sure about that?” replied Kafenfumph. I am Sergeant Kafenfumph and the only person who can slay you… beast!” Lewis McG
