Double Triangle Trouble
A Disney Duck Fanfic:
Instead of being purely based on one entity, this story takes background from Classic Donald Duck cartoons, Ducktales, and Darkwing Duck.

Disclaimers: Disney owns most of these characters. Dumbella Duck's past as Bella Widgeon is mine, as are the characters of Melanie Widgeon, Ronnie and Lisa Mallard, and whomever else I mention in the future.
Author Notes: This story is a sequel to the stories "Back to the Nest" and "Extended Wings". Reading those stories prior this one would help; though you most likely could understand this story regardless.
Chapter 14: Into the Dark
Brad Eugene Palmer (Nightw2/comickook)
After making arrangements with Gyro, Dewey, aka Major Mind, then dialed up the number for the room the Duck family was staying at. "Hello? Uncle Donald?"
"Yes? Where have you boys been?" Donald asked in a worried tone.
"We found out that Gyro is in Rio for an inventor's convention and needs some help keeping his inventions in order and test some of those inventions. Huey, Louie and I are assisting him, but we'll probably be gone for a few more hours yet." Dewey answered.
"Gyro, eh?" Donald responded curiously.
"Well, yes. In fact, you can check with him yourself. We'll see you, Aunt Daisy, mom and Melanie in the morning. Luv ya, Uncle Donald." Dewey answered swiftly.
"Luv ya too, boys." Donald responded back before Dewey hung up.
Boy, good thing you thought fast, Dewey. Calling Gyro before you called Uncle Donald to establish our alibi was a good catch." Huey replied.
"And the best part was that it was at least HALF-true, since we ARE technically helping Gyro test some of his inventions." Louie added.
"Indeed, dear siblings. Now, after we find some appropriate costumes, we do have a museum to stake out." Dewey stated factually.
Elsewhere in Brazil, Darkwing and Launchpad, employing a makeshift version of the Thunderquack built by Gyro and Doctor Bellum, was already flying in pursuit of Steelbeak.
Fortunately, the super-spy's hasty escape provided a trail that was easy to follow for the two heroes.
As Darkwing and Launchpad saw some of the Cyber-Eggmen flying off, Darkwing said "I'm going in after Steelbeak. You radio the military to expect those cyber-stooges."
"Right-O, DW." Launchpad said with a salute as Darkwing carefully made his way inside.
Meanwhile, the Fearsome Five was starting to make preparations for their second try at the Divine Eye Diamond. Quackerjack and Megavolt, especially, were preparing a diversion for Quiverwing; namely two dozen 50-foot fire-breathing teddy bears with retractable electro-claws.
Negaduck groaned quietly at first before remembering that he was dealing with Quackerjack.
Bushroot was planting two dozen seeds that he was working on growing into large and powerful trees that he could control and would provide ideal cover to let the Fearsome Five get away with the Divine Eye Diamond should Quiverwing and/or any allies she brought defeat the giant teddy bears.
"Excellent. This time, Quiverwing WON'T be able to thwart the robbery." Negaduck said as the Fearsome Five got ever closer to completing their preparations for the second attempt to steal the Divine Eye Diamond.
Elsewhere, Taurus Bulba kept a careful vigil over the Mallards' hotel suite, waiting until Morgana, Ronnie and Lisa were all within his sights before drawing extra-careful aim.
"Once I get your wife and two youngest children, Darkwing, Gosalyn will be next, followed by YOU." the cybernetic steer cackled quietly.
Back at Steelbeak's lair, the metal-mouthed super-spy saw by a cloud of blue smoke flash right in front of him.
Before Darkwing could begin any entrance lines, Steelbeak said, "Look, Dimwad, we both know dis routine by heart."
"So let's jest skip da " 'I am da terror dat flaps 'n da night bit'" 'n git right ta da battle." Steelbeak said with a groan.
"Fine by me, iron breath." Darkwing's voice answered from behind Steelbeak as a sweep kick took the evil rooster off his feet.
"W'at! Youse trick'd me, ya poiple-clad cheata." Steelbeak commented as he felt Darkwing's elbow smash into the back of his neck.
"Yep, yep, yep. The old 'throwing the smoke bomb one place and beginning the attack somewhere else' trick. Just goes to show you I'm not ALWAYS as predictable as you think, eh, tin grin?" Darkwing said before Steelbeak turned himself around and kicked the masked hero right in the gut.
As Darkwing was getting up, Steelbeak pulled out his favorite gun and started firing at Darkwing, who was hard-pressed to dodge the weapons' fire as he pulled out his gas gun and returned fire.
Though Steelbeak had the sense to hold his breath while Darkwing fired his gas gun shots, the gas discharges still provided just enough smoke cover to give Darkwing a chance to web kick the gun out of Steelbeak's hands and then flip the villain over.
Steelbeak pulled a remote out of his coat, though, and commented "Look, Dingwing Dork, let me direct yer attention ta 'bout dese hostages.," pressing the first button as he said this, which activated all the lair monitors.
"Now, da way I see it, youse have two choices; keep fight'n me 'r try ta save da hostages from da li'l self-destruct bomb built into dis lair.," the alloy-beaked enemy agent continued as he pressed a second button, which activated a bomb powerful enough to blow up the lair.
"Youse will only have time ta do one, 'cause dis lair will be blow'n up 'n ten minutes, not count'n da time it'll take me ta finish talk'n." finishing as he started to run off.
Darkwing smirked to himself, and he started to head down to free the hostages; racing against time to save them before the lair's self-destruct bomb went off. After all, he had Launchpad wait in their temporary travel vehicle outside the villain's lair for more reasons than to call the military personnel back at the university.
As Steelbeak left, he calmly commented "So what if I lost dose hostages? T'anks ta the Cyba-Eggmen, I've got the powa ta take all'a Rio hostage," Steak added just before getting trapped in a net fired by Launchpad as the villain made it out of the lair.
As Steelbeak tried to bite through the net, he took a massive electrical shock, courtesy of the specially rigged wiring inside said net. With that, Steelbeak fell unconscious.
However, Steelbeak's falling unconscious triggered a distress signal to the Cyber-Eggmen, six of whom started back toward their boss as the others tore into the tanks and choppers of the military personnel at the university.
Meanwhile, near the museum, Quiverwing saw the Duck triplets show up in their costumes. Louie was garbed in a white toga worn over his force field vest, a dark green cape and a black mask and pants, which, in addition to the power gear, comprised his Kid Quackles costume.
Huey was garbed in red "winged-foot" design boots, black pants, a brick red athletic Jersey and matching racecar driver helmet in addition to his Speed Prince belt.
Dewey came out garbed in a white shirt, a dark blue cape with matching jacket and pants, a black mask with matching shoes and a tie in addition to his Major Mind helmet.
