Alright /co/, Gabe visited you in a dream. you have been chosen to head the writing staff for TF2:TAS
In two sentences or less, pitch Gabe an episode idea.
For every idea that pleases Gabe, he will bring Episode 3 one day closer to us.
Obligatory episodes were everyone is suddenly interested in what pyro looks like under the mask. Pay off at the end is something stupid like "another mask"
Maybe some more eps like explaining the blu team beings clones and hats
Episode starts off in 2fort, sniper throws jarate at a spy. The jarate is red with blood. Sniper learns he has prostate cancer. Medic can't heal him so he tries to deal with his mortality. Call his parents and apologizing for calling heavy fat. In the end it turns out medic was wrong (as usual) and it was just a urinary track infection
An episode with just Archemides flying around the base, taking a peek at everyone's alone time or conversations with the other mercs. Ends with the Pyro slowly taking off his mask but offscreen.
An episode with everyone's parents coming to stay. Spy's parents wear masks too, heavies mom, snipers parents fighting with him, demos mom nagging him, pyro parents are some inanimate objects he sees as them in pyro vision/ hey wear makes too/ faces are hidden conviently in each shot
Would it add anything to the show if there were brief segments where the cast is being interviewed for comment like in the "Meet the..." shorts?
Kinda like an "Agents of S.M.A.S.H." sort of thing.
Heavy's excitement at being invited to give a lecture on Russian literature is cut short when one of Scout's hilarious practical jokes leaves him bedridden.
Feeling guilty, Scout decides to save Heavy's reputation by stealing Spy's disguise kit and giving the lecture himself.
>Season 1 is red team
>Season 2 is blu team, still follows on directly and everyone acts the same
>Season 2 ends on a cliffhanger as the blu team discovers the secret behind the two teams
>No Season 3
Also a little darker, because it's a more realistic treatment of cancer than pulsating green blobs that were shown on bread.
It wouldn't add, it would do the other thing.
>The Teufort Nine spend an episode playing not! D&D, where each class' character is an exaggerated medieval parody of some other class. (Scout plays a Robin Hood not!Sniper, Medic plays a drunken not!Braveheart not!Demoman, et cetera)
TF2 cast each separately keep Sniper from assassinating some guy
In the end Sniper flips and goes after
The TF2 cast can literally be magically cast into a medieval setting
It's part of the universe
Medic falls ill and the gang needs to figure out how to heal him by themselves - but the medigun has gone missing!
Heavy stays by Medic's side and tells him story of his homeland, and organises an IV drip of liquid sandvich.
Engineer and Spy try to figure out the Medic's designs to build a new medigun.
Demoman, Soldier and Scout drink beer while watching the security tapes to figure out what happened.
Eventually a new medigun is built, and it looks sort of haphazard, but also differently designed. The Heavy is about to use it on the Medic, but a rocket suddenly blows his hands off - a rocket fired by the Soldier!
The medigun hits the floor, but it fires a beam which reflects off of several surfaces, passes through a scope and hits the Sniper, who has been watching the perimeter the whole time. He promptly falls into a coma.
The monitor guys reveal that the tapes showed that the night before, Demoman and Sniper were drunk and stumbling around, before Demoman saw this haphazard medigun and decided to play Medic. He shot the medic, who immediately came up with blotches on his skin, and the two scattered, dropping the medigun which shattered into a lot of pieces.
After stealing the other team's medigun, the team heal Sniper and Medic, who reveals that he had been trying to create an offensive medigun which gave every disease he'd healed with it to whoever he shot it at with.
The spy and pyro are stuck with each-other after they are left behind in a mission and must get back to the base before something happens maybe taco night ends or the opposing team will get them and beat the crap out of them,
the spy is nervous around the pyro and the episode is focused around the two getting along better. the side plot would be the soldier slowly realizing that he left the pyro and spy behind.
One? I'll give you
>EPISODE 1: "RED VS BLUE"
an introduction of Team Fortress lore (Zeph. Mann's death scene and will reading) coupled with the two teams having to defend and capture MYSTERIOUS BRIEFCASES at a place called 2Fort.
>EPISODE 2: "Tonight's the night-part 1"
A retelling of "Loose Canon", but split in half. The side story follows Pyro and Spy trying to work out their differences (and have Spy understand what the hell Pyro's saying)
>EPISODE 3:"Tonight's really the night-part 2"
second half of "Loose Canon" story, but the side story is RED team raiding a supermarket for sandwich supplies and getting more than they bargained for when BLU team has a similar case of the munchies
>EPISODE 4:"THIS MEANS WAR"
A retelling of the WAR UPDATE's comic, with an added Heavy storyline featuring Spy and Scout visiting his family in Russia ALA "Cold Day in Hell"
>EPISODE 5:"MEET THE DIRECTOR"
Follows the MEET THE DIRECTOR storyline, but it takes even more inspiration from the MEET THE videos.
>EPISODE 6: "THE DAWN OF THE UBERMAN"
Doesn't follow a comic, rather it's an expanded MEET THE MEDIC episode. Side story is Blue team discovers a way to clone soldiers, and they overrun everything until the uber happens at the end of the ep.
>EPISODE 7: "MANN OF WALL STREET"
Introduction of Saxton Hale (his ancestors did appear in flashbacks earlier though), has him go through a crazy comic book style adventure and the B-story is RED team becoming obsessed with MANN CO weapons and hats.
>EPISODE 8:"VIVA AUSTRALIA"
Goldrush episode as the team finally discovers what "Australium" really is. Sniper goes through a mid-life crisis, wondering if he should go back to Australia where he belongs, ending with a Poopy Joe flashback and them shipping the Australium off the planet via Doomsday rocket.
>EPISODE 9: "CAPTURE POINTS OF HORROR I"
In honor of the Halloween maps, this is a scary story. The RED mercenaries have acquired a strange mission: they must stay in the mansion of Zepheniah Mann. for one night. Halloween hijinks follow.
>EPISODE 10:"THE WIZARD OF PYROLAND"
Pyro's having... performance problems. In an effort to save Pyro's work ethic, Engineer and Medic have teamed up to create a DREAM MACHINE so an elite team (AKA Medic) can go into his mind and figure out what's bugging him(her). It's patterned like the Wizard of Oz, but in Pyroland.
>Soldier makes it back to base
>Sits down and watches tv
>Scout asks if he's seen spy or pyro
Fast forward to nightfall
>Spy and Pyro finally make it back to base
>just as they reach the door, the garage explodes and a van comes barreling out
>"HOLD ON BOYS, I'M COMING!" Soldier shouts as he drives through the desert
Considering that was the season finale, I intended it to be. I would also have
random throwaway hints to Abraham Lincoln and Frankenstein to nod to some other possible Pyro identities
Season 2 would mainly involve the Grey stuff probably. It would have another Halloween episode and a MEET THE SPY episode.
>Spy and Pyro are walking through the desert as the sun sets, uniforms tattered from the final escape.
>Pyro, muffled, asks Spy something.
>"Is ze Soldier coming back?" Spy says.
CAMERA SWITCH TO BASE
>Soldier in nightgown, nightcap on top of his helmet, passes Spy and Pyro's beds
>"Rest easy, troops, I'll see you at 0600 sharp."
>He lays in his bed, rolls on his side and falls asleep.
>Camera slowly pans to window.
>Camera suddenly jerks back to Soldier, who is upright.
>"By the Rocket's Red Glare!...tomorrows Saturday! (towards Spy and Scouts beds) Strike those last orders, I'll see you at 0400 sharp!"
>Soldier lays back down, grinning widely as he falls back asleep.
>Camera pans to window, zooms in on night sky
>Zooms out to Spy and Pyro walking in the full night.
>"...No, Pyro, I don't think so."
After years of service, Scout dies on the battlefield, only to find that he is immediately regenerated in the spawn room. This leads to an existential crisis. Is he Scout, or a copy of Scout? Does this only apply to occupational hazards, or any methods of death? Is this power a blessing or a curse? Will it last forever, or just so long as he's employed? In the end, Scout goes nuts and floods the desert with neurotoxin, which proves to be pointless as everyone just respawns in the supply room. The episode ends with the Spy making a phone call to Gabe Newell with a video game pitch, but he's replaced Scout with a sexy robot lady.
Full Leather Jacket
Soldier goes through his 3rd mid-life crisis and purchases and expensive motorcycle. His increased mobility is beneficial to the team, however when he becomes too obsessed with his steed it puts the rest of the mercs in fear for their life.
I sort of address this in mine.
Basically, the whole "cloning" thing is a source of confusion for everyone, but most of them are indifferent and don't care to try to figure out why they respawn.. except for one guy who goes nuts. We don't get any answers by the end of the episode and we don't need them.
The Heavy tries to hide his secret affinity for ponies from the other soldiers.
The twist is that he hasn't seen a woman for so long that he's physically attracted to cartoon ponies. Guess what he uses the Balloonicorn for?
I'm not sure you picked up on the punchline, so I'll reiterate it.
Teen Titans Go! did this shit, and they played it totally straight. The punchline here is that Heavy really is as bad as people think a brony would be.
As a ponyfag, I'd rather you keep the horses OFF of this. Seriously.
A simple episode focusing on a '60s spy-movie based adventure the team has together.
No randumb humor, no hats, no internet culture references, just the team doing what they're best at and complimenting each other's personalities.
Soldier finds out that everyone in his team is not American.
Pyro just likes everyone and shows it in her own silent physical gags
Spy just has a passive aggressive relationship with everyone
Again, the subtlety seems to have been lost on you. Teen Titans Go did it, and it was shitty, IT'S OKAY TO LIKE HORSES pandering. The punchline here would be the exact opposite. How dense are you?
It's like you guys don't want to make fun of the things we typically make fun of.
>Spytech theme=bond parodies!!
The game was DESIGNED around stylish '60s spytech aesthetic, you mongo. Everybody's suggesting all this gimmicky not-game-related fanwank, and all I want to do is see the team interacting with each other on a mission together for once.
Fuck all of you. 10/10, I'm furious.
I want mlp stuff far away from TF2. Like I get what you mean, but no, it's good on other stuff, just not TF2. Even if it was mean as an insult, bronies would treat it like a good thing.
Look, ponies will just bring unwanted shitstorms. I mean, there's enough hate for the horsefuckers in the modded servers and for the obnoxious players around the game.
These guys >>63453115 >>63453121 have the right idea.
>Join trade server to get my hands on a new weapon
>Walk a few steps
>Two heavies in those kind of obnoxious sleeping dogs promos spraying pone pornography all over the walls
There are good fans of that show, TF2 is not a source of them.
>Classic scout doing his gags.
>Demoman shows up drunk and lets out his inner feelings (which is 80% drunk gibberish)
>Medic likes everyone but has a favorite.
We never find out.
>Maybe Pryo tries talking but its all "mphs" and hand motions.
>Heavy hates scout.
>Soldier being himself, complementing his team on little stuff.
As with every other fandom. Anyway, lets stray away from this discussion before you know who shows up.
Fuck, now I want to see a vigilante-themed episode. Just Scout and another merc goofing off in their tights fighting crime.
Scout's ma would cameo and baby him whenever he's fighting crime in the streets.
>The intervention is about poor communication amongst missions
>Scout bloats and bloats about how great he is
>Everyone who points out his shortcomings [shenanigans]
>He gulps down his pride, realizing he nearly costed the mission
>"You guys are like family to me, and again, I'm sorry..."
>They do what ever mercs do when they celebrate stuff
>Ms Pauling, who at first saw the errors of his ways, is now proud of Scout, smiling as she shakes her head in an amused manor at a screen capturing the intervention through a camera in the base
Bonk energy drink has a massive product recall forcing Scout to find a suitable substitute. He goes around trying other team consumables like Sandvich, whiskey and jarate with varying degrees of horrible disgust.
Heavy is all out of sandvichs and dalokahs bars, but he really doesn't want to go grocery shopping. He convinces Soldier to go shopping for him but ends up buying thousands and thousands of hats instead.
Scout is angry that the Medic always ubers the Heavy and not him. Scout steals Spys disguise to impersonate Heavy on the battlefield and hog all the ubers, which angers the rest of the team.
Engie is hosting the annual Red team barbeque, but his grill has broken. In order to save the barbeque, the team must steal the Blu team's grill from the other side of 2fort.
Demo decides to quit drinking after nearly blowing up Red base while drunk. Find it hard to cope without drinking, he ends up getting hooked on Bonk that he took from Scout.
The rest of the team threaten to kick Sniper out of the team unless he stops leaving his Jarate bottles all over the base.
Spy leaves for whatever reason (Date with Scout's mom, secret mission, whatever) One person (Let's say scout) puts on one of Spy's masks. A second member (Heavy) finds out, and tries one on as well. Soon, everyone is wearing different masks, confusing the hell out of Spy when he returns.
what if OP is really Gabe and whole this thread exist just because writers don't have idea for scenarios?
Only if the betting ring grows exponentially outwards, culminating in Spy getting various employees of Spy Tech in on the deal, and when they lose the team has to deal with a lot of pissed off people involved in espionage.
engie builds a special sentry / combines all of his buildings to form a sentient robot, maybe to try and counteract grey mann co's robots. said robots becomes self aware and goes berserk. the mercs have to figure out a way to stop its rampage before it destroys...a lot of things.
end with robot exploding, much to engineer's sadness.
The whole team takes a trip to a Disneyland knock-off. Hi-jinx ensue and they get banned off the premises forever. Secretly it was all an undercover mission to destroy Gray Mann's robots disguised as simple animatronics, successfully destroyed by Soldier.
>The mercs accidentally injure Santa Clause and try to save Christmas
>Sniper goes through the annual Australian mating cycle called The Walkabout, where he becomes obnoxious and grows a moustache like his Aussie kin and attempts to find a mate
>Demoman becomes obsessed with being a pirate, and the team must break it to him that it can never happen
>Pyro and Engie go on vacation, and get into hijinks between Pyro's pyromania and Engineer's want of a 'perfect' vacation
>the mercs enter a high-stakes bowling tournament, and annoy the patrons of the bowling alley in the process
1 person on each team tries too help sabotage their team for the other person. Hilarity ensures as the Soldiers tries too find out the traitor, only too realize that THEY were the ones doing it on accident, ending the episode with a silhouette of 2 people fist-bumping each other, setting up a sequel.
>Miss P. plays back by using the other team's Medic, whom surprisingly hooks up with the fired chicken tramp.
>Scout soon realizes that she WAS actually jealous of Scout.
>Miss Pauling tries too deny it, but eventually admits that after the events of "Love And War", she IS actually more open too the idea, only if their "dates" are missions, like "Capture The Intelligence", or "Payload" and that she ALSO has access too the respawn chamber.
>Scout has no qualms with it.
>They start too kiss, before a distressed cry is heard.
>It is revealed too be the spy, who realized that he is now in debt too a lot of people.
>The episode ends with him cursing off the medic as he laughs his ass off, only too see Scout and Miss P giving him a pissed-off glare for following them.
>As the screen goes black, a bat and pistol sound effect is heard.
> The RED team needs to steal the breifcase from the blue team, but Scout and Heavy aren't getting along, due to Heavy thinking Scout stole his sandwhich.
> Engineer creates an new, more intellegent AI for his Sentry. Everyone starts taking a liking to the new AI while they are starting to ignore Engie all together and befriend his AI.
> Spy gets fed up with his team, so he decides to go on a "vacation" and join the other team as a BLU Spy to kill his team mates. Turns out the BLU team is even worse.
> The RED team's Scout is killed. They think nothing of it until they realize that he didn't respawn. Alternatively, the BLU teams Pyro is killed and doesn't respawn either.
> Scout gets a hold of Spy's disguise box.
> Pyro shows up to the fight with a spiffy lookin hat
> Medic tries a new medic gun that doesn't work the way he hoped
> RED and BLU Team need to set asside their differences to fight the MANN robots
> RED and BLU team need to set aside their differences to fight the MANN robots.
Demoman wants a new grenade launcher (loch n load) he turns into demopan to try and sell a stout shako so he can afford it
>Unusual times with Pyro in Pyroland.
Pyro find a unusual hat, which in his pyroland vision is just another hat. He acts calm about it while the rest of the team tries too buy it off of him, leading up too a eventual climax where something happens too it (Demoman got booze on it, Spy flicked a cigarette on it, ect.) and the thing that happened too the hat makes Pyro see it as a animal who needs rainbows too live in his pyrovision world, and pyro sets the hat on fire in the real world, while the pyrovision world has the animal enjoying it. Pyro walks off while the rest of the team looks on with shock and tears. The episode ends with Scout opening up a crate too find a unusual hat, as the remaining team members look at him with dollar signs in their eyes.
The red vs blue struggle is all a fabrication. The Mercs are all clones of the best people in each respective job in the world. They fight real battles and die to gather data to develop new weapons and strategies for some looming threat. Hats are mental uplink devices that allow the mercs to remember everything from previous lives. Yet not deal with the fact they die in the hundreds of thousands of times per week. Grey robot army is a competing defense idea. Saxton Hale is a defense contractor who took his own super solider serum. Side effects being that it made him forget about the serum and now he thinks he is Australian.
>A Holiday with Soldiers
A 4th of July episode with the 2 Soldiers putting aside their differences too celebrate 4th of July. The get their teams in on it while sharing weird traditions, like having a American flag be wrapped around in a cone and decorated with other american flags, while they have a night-long fire by using the flags of every other country, playing "Pin the tail on the spinning bottled up Osama Bin Laden" and recounting stories of how Bill Clinton and Abraham Lincoln teamed up against Hitler and Kim Jong Un's robotic mermaid army with mecha battlebots made from the White House's own walls and floors, all while waiting for the ghost of George Washington too come and give them firecrackers and american apple pie. Surprisingly, the first people too get fed up with this are the ENGIES, and as they walks off, they see the ghost of George Washington rise from the ground, as the excited Soldiers greets him, while the rest of the team looks at this with a dumbstruck expression.
Well I have this.
Another hat episode I think could work would probably be that someone on the team is stealing hats, and it turns out too be [/spoiler]Soldier, who claims that the ghost of Belgium Ben Franklin requested him too make a gigantic American flag out of the hats. The team is actually awed by this, and let it slide. As they all leave, the Soldier is laughing before softly smirking. The last words of the episode are, "Nobody suspects a damn thing..."[/spoiler]
>Due to WACKY HIJINX scout and spy get superglued together and wander around the base trying to get unstuck
>Sniper, Soldier, and Demo go camping but on their way sniper's van breaks down leaving them stranded on the side of the road
pyro's cousin comes to town and scout is all over dat
Engineer invents Pong and accidentally gets both RED and BLU addicted to it. The Administrator threatens to fire him if he doesn't come up with a plan to break the teams' obsession and get back to killing.
From the Archimedes item description:
"Before Archimedes came into the Medic's care, he made his living through wedding dovery. A lucrative trade, but he always felt something was missing. He looks back on the day that the Medic stole that catering van during the prime minister's wedding as the best day of his life. He's been burrowing into the chests of unwitting patients ever since."
Sounds like a fun episode too animate.
Well, I think ONE team is going too catch on, and give that bet up for a fight against them. Could lead too a good moral abou-why the fuck am I bringing morals into a game which you can kill people with a fish?
Or a relevant fan comic, those are golden too.
that reminds me, what does the team look and sound like to pyro? we know the opposing team is babies, so how would he see his coworkers? sentient objects? eye-gouging recolors? what?
also, why do you say that engie would be the only regular guy? i'm curious as to your reasoning.
I'm sure he's saying that because the engie is shown to be on good terms with pyro. He reads him a story book about the meaning of Smissmass or something in one of the comics and in the game a pyro is an engie's best friend.
>Team confronts the Medic about not having his Medical degree
>Medic tries to point out that he doesn't need it as he can literally heal everyone in seconds
>Does't work and is forced to explain how he lost his license
>The explanation up front is a basic story of him learning about a patient, getting called to do the operation, going slightly mad, and stealing his skeleton
>However a lot of the background and side dialog will hint at how there's red and blu copies of the exact same mercs
>Last part of the story is Medic finding out how to do it and running off
>"So you see, it's not technically that I lost my license but only that I assume I did."
>Scout: "Wait, what was that bit about the clones again?
All throughout the series some of the mercs will occasionally ask about the clones and how they're able to come back from death with all their memories in tact. The Medic and Spy will try to answer but be interrupted.
