Jump to: navigation, search

Fraz Jones and the Conservators, also called The Forbidden Ones and "the bus", are a mobile collection of {number pending} penguins that travel Antarctica with their unlicensed, fugitive father behind the wheel of a large bus, formerly used for public transport. Being the son of TSGGG, it makes perfect sense for something to be horribly wrong with Fraz. TurtleShroom's father died before he could join the rest of his brothers and sisters on the whirlwind trip his father provided.

The Bureau of Fiction entertains themselves at the Jones family's expense by using Fraz's mentally detached antics to transport protagonists (and antagonists) to assorted destinations, in some sort of manical, untested attempt to cure Writers' Block.

The Story of Fraz

The Beginnings

Fraz is the son of Baldurshroom and his long-deceased wife, some time after the fall of the Snowman Empire. Apparently, crazy ran in the family, because Fraz is, to say the least, crazy. For most of Fraz's chickhood, Baldurshroom was far too occupied with trying to unravel the mysteries of "The Secret". It was a quest which would eventually cost him his very being and almost destroy the BOF and the universe along with it, though that's another story altogether.

Fraz's mother died before he could conciously recall her, and the sadness that his father felt was channeled into his incessant quest to unlock what no mortal was to know. The more Baldurshroom learned of the Secret, the more he hated it. When Fraz was an adolescent- and already showing signs of mental decay -Baldurshroom one day returned with a strange ID necklace and told his son that he was "this close" to "liberating the world", a quest that would, as said, eventually take him down. Fraz's fragile state was failing, mainly because Baldurshroom saw to it that Fraz maintained very little in a social life. (He thought that the Secret was after him, and he later found out that he was right.)

The Quest

Failing to see that his son was losing it, Baldurshroom took Fraz along with him on his quests to find "portals of evil" (secondary BOF Entrances) that appeared and disappeared at random. Interestingly, Fraz's father did this because he feared his son would go crazy from neglect. TSGGG loved Fraz very much, and wanted to help him. Little did he know that this would be the very undoing of the already delicate penguin.

For most of his adolescence, Fraz and TSGGG were on the unpaved paths of unexplored Antarctica in search of "the evil". Long before anyone else, the duo made tracks in places not to be found again for decades. TSGGG was also losing it, and he eventually handed the duties of driving the vehicle to Fraz, who loved it.

TSGGG would work in the back of the RV-like lab-on-wheels, and Fraz would drive. TSGGG never did teach him how to do it, so Fraz never really did get the whole "rules of the road" idea. He didn't need it, because back then, roads were scarce and they were mainly in pure frontier lands.

Years passed and the two came close to getting in the BOF several times. They would run into- or over -BOF employees in the middle of nowhere and interrogate them to the best of their abilities. Baldurshroom, who was Level One on the Fourth Wall Scale, began to learn FW-manipualtion techniques from these kidnapped employees: power such as this was not meant for a low Wall level as he, and his body showed rapid signs of physical decay because of it. Prematurely, TSGGG was greying and weakening at an alarming rate. Fraz was deeply concerned, but was convinced by his father that the only way to cure him was to solve the Secret. (TSGGG had long lost it.)

Hamming it Up

They pressed on, and it was when Fraz was eighteen- having lost most of his sanity and having been driving for five years -that TSGGG met Porkchop, some deranged and evil cultist (from the future) that hated the Skybound crew but had an unhealthy obbsession with peanut butter. Porkchop explained to Baldurshroom that he was a "Fourth Wall Insider" (lies) and illegal time traveller that knew of the Wall (truth), that he could get TSGGG into the BOF (more lies), and that he possessed a weird BOF contraption that could slash a rip in time and space, into the BOF's office, for him (white lie if you're Porkchop), provided he cooperate (dun dun dun).

TSGGG fell for Porkchop hook line and sinker. Fraz was suspicious but too determined to cure his father to care. Porkchop suggested that Fraz try varying his wardrobe from the usual black cloak he and his father wore, and Fraz embraced the idea. Agreeing, Fraz took the hood off his cloak for the first time in nearly fourteen years. He had brutal hat hair. It turns out that this actually saved him from going truly crazy down the road.

TSGGG worked with Porkchop, but noticed that Fraz- now wearing a different suit every day (and TSGGG liked it) -wasn't trusting Porkchop as he was. Feeling that Porkchop might be a bad influence on Fraz (and how right he was), TSGGG told him that he didn't have to work for him any more. He'd take on the Secret himself. Fraz asked why, and TSGGG explained that he needed to live his life to the fullest.

He warned his only son not to make the same mistakes he did, focusing his entire life only on the Secret. TSGGG explained to Fraz that, while he never regretted his choice, he wished that he could have lived life as well. He urged Fraz to set off on his own, and to "take chances, make mistakes, and get messy" on the way. Fraz took this to heart, and that phrase eventually became his maxim.


TSGGG had Porkchop supply Fraz with some sort of evil spiderbot, which Fraz used to travel away from the wildernesses and the RV he had long called home. Fraz headed northeast from there and eventually came across Mattress Village, where he met a penguin named Valerie. She worked as a secretary for a small business in town. Fraz fell head over heels in love with this penguin, and the two realized how much they needed each other. Valerie was very shy and humble, while Fraz was loud and dressed extravagantly. Fraz was as crazy as Valerie sane. The two married after a mere two months' worth of dating, and they had a stable, loving relationship that gave them many, many chicks.

Fraz thought that it was a good idea for Valerie to take up the family quest for finding the Secret, and she accepted, willing to go to the ends of the earth and back for her husband (and vice-versa). Agreeing, Valerie sold her igloo and the two used it to purchase a large bus from the Ice Kingdom's underfunded Department of Transport. On their last day in Mattress Village, Fraz (spastically) waved goodbye to the denizens and turned to the bus, a rickety contraption that barely managed to hold itself together. Everyone climbed on board, and fastened their seatbelts. Cranking the keys, Fraz triumphantly shouted "WAAAAAHHOOOOOO", and drove straight through three buildings and off into the great unknown. Valerie had trouble keeping her blood pressure down for the rest of her life.

Valerie truly saved Fraz from depression and misery. For the next fifteen years, the couple and their many chicks travelled across Antarctica in TSGGG's footsteps. The family worked together, and the chicks each developed their own set of persnomality traits, sanctioned from the influence of other penguins and social interaction. Some say they are who they are because each had to take a role in the "family business", so to speak. One would be the researcher, another the leader, one would dive in head first, another would be reserved, and then there was just a niche for humor to lighten the situation, for example.

Valerie and Fraz had the time of their life doing what they loved, and Valerie actually found an Entrance. Fearing for her husband's safety and wanting the chicks to have a parent if she didn't make it, Valerie forced Fraz to stay behind and "gaurd the Entrance" as she entered.

Valerie found herself in the Bureau of Fiction. It was far greater than anything Fraz told her it was, and confirmed her longstanding suspicions that "evil" was afoot, just as Fraz's father had said. Valerie wondered the halls of the BOF and managed to snag dozens of UP-classified files. Her modest dress and shy appearence, plus the Necklace that TSGGG had given Fraz, managed to keep her under the radar for nearly a month. Valerie passed herself off as a low-level BOF employee that was trusted with maintaining files for higher employees. Taking advantage of what was, in those days, lax security, Valerie would steal information as she worked, and they were none the wiser. What was truly amazing was that, back then, much of the BOF was a manual task. She smuggled whole folders worth of data in her inventory. The Necklace allowed her inventory to remain unprobed.

Valerie resurfaced from the entrance a month later, and was overjoyed to show Fraz what she found. The two looked over the documents, but Valerie became scared, because Fraz's delicate mind couldn't grasp the idea of something controlling their every move. The thought of it, while exciting, was too much for Fraz, but he didn't know that. He pleaded with his wife to get them more and more data. Valerie decided not to, though, because she feared that the shock could kill Fraz.

Secretly, she took the UP documents and burned them in the night, and, using the skills she had learned as a secretary, forged papers that revealed the same information that they had already known- just worded differently -tricking the gullible Fraz into thinking that she wasn't able to get any more information that they could use. He was saddened, but it didn't damper his optimism. Fraz had done what Baldurshroom dreamed of: he had infiltrated the Secret and lived to tell the tale.

In the 1970s, subtle things began to come undone. TSGGG, by now, had morphed into the being he is today, and had, in the meta-space of the Fourth Wall, begun to try and attack the BOF office directly. He was still tied to the machine that Porkchop had hooked him to (to keep the powers he had aquired in check at this time), and his attacks worked quite well.

Weird occurences began to affect Antarctica in this time. Trees would vanish and reappear, buildings would collapse, only to spontaenously reappear, alongside other subtle, but noticable to the trained eye, items would occur. Fraz's attention was peaked.

Valerie went back into the BOF, suspicious of what was happening, and resumed her disguise. The entire BOF was reciting emergency drills almost every day, because an unrealistic, severe rainstorm pelted the office- odd, because rain didn't exist in that space -and Valerie used that to snoop around the BOF, into areas she really didn't belong.

She found herself in the upper floors, where Department of Research goons were designing special chips for past and future media, ranging from punch cards to USB drives, designed to allow any vehicle to travel unrealistically fast, teleportable, and be indestructible. These were used to gear up any and all movable transport in the BOF as escape vehicles, in case whatever was out there compromised them. They were codenamed "Thingamadoodles". Valerie stole one in the choas.

TSGGG Contacts Fraz and Valerie

A few days later, she found herself in the Department of Surveillance. The screens were mostly just static, but a few were focused on the outside. Fiddling with the controls, she managed to zoom in on a particularly dark section of the meta-space, where swirls of black and red billowed forth like an entity of their own. A few adjustments further allowed her to zoom through this. She saw a strange penguin alongside a large blue box with a weirdly shaped thing on top of it. Coming out of that thing was a creature that, if she looked at it long enough, seemed to be the whispy, shifting remnants of some sort of penguin. Whatever "it" was, she was sure that it was once dressed in black and had black hair.

"No way!" Valerie could recall herself saying.

Valerie made the connection between Fraz and the wraith outside. They both had black hair and wanted to attack "the Secret". Could that thing be Fraz's father?! If this was so, then that other thing by his machine, holding the peanut butter, must have been that creepy guy that Fraz referred to as "junk".

Her viewing was interrupted by a detached voice trying to call to her.
She still recalls the conversation:

"Who's there?"

"It's.... m...eee..."


"Your.... f...a...t...h...e..r... in-...l...a...w..."

"You're Fraz's father?"


"You don't look like him!"

"They... did this... to... m...e..."



"Should I tell Fraz?"


"Maybe you should."


Fraz was contacted next.



"I... feel... so... p...r...o...u...d... of... you..."

"Where are you?"

"Attacking... them..."

"WAHOO! You're about to do it, Dad; keep it up!"

"Y...o...u... have... g...r...a...n...d...c...h...i...l...d...r...e...n... for... me?" the wraith hissed.


The kids wave, one in particular is terrified.

"I... feel... so... p...r...o...u...d....."

"What's next, Dad?"


The voice faded away, as Fraz boasted about TSGGG's life to his chicks. That would be the last time Fraz saw TSGGG for about twenty years.

Fraz remains on his quest to find the "Secret", and he thinks that by stopping to pick up certain predestined creatures, he can learn more. Sadly, those who ride with him have little info to share, even though they do talk a lot.

He is a tool for the BOF, designed to circumvent Writers' Block. He shows up randomly to pick up a protagonist or antagonist and drives them to their destination. While on board, said victim talks to Fraz and family, as they try to extract information on the Fourth Wall from him. They never get much, but they do have a good time talking to each other.


Name Portrait Catchphrase Description Parody of
"Am I the only one that thinks that..." Russel is a bit chubby and catches illnesses very easily. He is also the most athletic of the Forbidden Ones and will generally be on board with any event or adventure Fraz has in store for them. He is very good at baseball, despite his appearence, he is quite imaginative, and he never leaves home without his hat. The "R" on his shirt obviously stands for "Rowdy". Ralphie
Peggy "Where I hailed from, they never..." One of the few Forbidden Ones that ever got to go home, Peggy is a shy, gentle, and humble penguin that is always hesitant to do anything and always seems to be shocked by what she finds herself getting in to. She spent a large chunk of her life in Mattress Village and uses it for comparisons. Phoebe
Albert "I KNEW I shouldn't have signed that contract..." Cautious, worrisome, easily scared, and hesitant, Albert really doesn't like travelling with his father and is normally seen looking out the window, mouthing "DO NOT GET ON" to anyone that may board the bus. He always thinks that danger will take his life and he tries, whenever possible, not to get involved. Like his siblingss, he signed the contract to watch over Fraz, but he sure does reject it. Arnold
Thank you thank you I'll be here all week tip your waitress and try the veal.png
<insert horrid pun> It is a hallmark of the Jones Family that, while they have a good sense of humor, they can't tell or comprehend most jokes in the slightest. Enter Clarence, then, who will make a lame pun out of any situation. Always in a good mood and able to see the bright side of everything, he will crack a joke at any time he can fit it in. Everyone, in eerie unison, will shout back "CLARENCE." He thinks he's the funniest penguin alive and has the Zone-like trait of mischeviously comical, if not slightly creepy, smiles.

Despite the girlish sound, Clarence was a boy's name.

Winona "WIMP!" Daring, adventerous, impulsive, and commanding, Winona is always ready to plunge head first into any and all situations that come her way. She's even volunteered to go with Valrie into the BOF to spy, though she was always turned down. She clashes a bit with Albert, who is pretty much her opposite. Those who hesitate are officialy "measely wimps" in her book. Wanda
Katherine "Oh crap; oh crap; oh crap crap crap CRAP." Sarcastic and very rational, Katherine will not go do something until she has calculated every possible option. As far as the Joneses go, she is also very edgy dressing the least modest (if you consider Skorts such a thing). She is skeptical in most everything and has a nasty language problem. She says "crap" AND "dang"! Keesha
Deloris "If what I read is true..." The most intelligent of the Forbidden Ones, Deloris spent most of her time reading and researching countless subjects, picking any books she could by and pouring over them. Well versed in most everything, including conspiracy theories, she can always lend a helping flipper to the situation, and her information has proved invaluable. Dorothy Anne
