Copper Fish Has Time Machine
Copper Fish Has Time Machine is a story of Copper Fish and an unnamed person using a time machine and going through time. Each part of the story was released on the Mineral Fish Scratch Forum thread in a screenshot of the story being written in a text editor running under various older versions of computer operating systems, among other things.

*magic portal opens, and time machine falls from the sky*
Where are we? Great. We're not in the future.
Can we try again?
EEEEEE! OOHH! (The clock in this thing is B R O K E N !)
*Copper Fish picks up a conviently placed water bottle and y e e t s at the time machine*
OOH AAHH! (Get in! Hopefully it actually works this time!)
Part 3[edit | edit source]Part 3 was written by JackyBorderCollie in Windows 2000.
*2000 windows startup sound*
No worries! They made it safely back to the ground!
uhh... This definitely seems, well, different, than the old 1.0 that I have lived.
OOOH OOH UUH EEH AAAH AAAAH! !! (this can't be possible! the time machine broke again!)
W-w-what?! what do we do now?!
OOH OOH IIIH AAAAAH! (we need to go and find some fuel!)
Hey, Copper Fish! Do you see that thing there? And, what's that text?! It's new, nice, great, and... without pixels!
OOH UUH AAH (that's arial font)
oh! Arial is such a nice font! wait, what does it read?
"All you need is here!"
OOH IIH (perfect!)
Ima go to it!
Here! Take this Fuel Can before it is too late to return!
OOH!! EEH UUH AAAH!!! (thanks!! now i can finally refuel the time machine!!!)
Let's jump in! I wanna see the modern days when Mineral Fish exist!
OOH! AAH EEEH! (alright! let's jump in!)
windows 2000 user: Hey! Come back! what you were doing in my computer?!
Part 4[edit | edit source]
Part 4 was written by TheGlassPenguin in Windows 10.
*another magic portal opens, and time machine comes up from out of the ground*
Is this...the future?
Hey! Look! In the background! The Mineral Fish!
EEE! OOHH! (Yep! and there's Scratch, this text editor, your future self...)
Wait..MY FUTURE SELF? AAH! *hides behind the time machine*
EEE (move along now, nothing to see here...)
OOH (they're gone now)
Error: Drive C: is full. Older objects and files will be automatically deleted in 5 minutes.
EEP! I'm an older object!
OOHHHI (Quick! Get in!)
IIH (There's some fuel left to at least get us back to Windows 3.1...)
Traveling back through time...
Part 5[edit | edit source]Part 5 was written by JackyBorderCollie in Windows 3.1
W-w-where are we???
OOH UUH IIH? (i... i don't know?)
You don't know??? What now???
OOH UUH UUH (we need to find a way back)
Aren't we in the future?
OOH EEH (no, we aren't)
Should I find fuel for the machine???
OOH OOH (no)
OOH OO EEEH AAAAAAAH UUUH (You must find a part of the machine to fix it. It broke)
Ohh, I get it! So, where can I find parts?
OOH UUUH AAAAH (use that VHS camcorder over there, zoom it in, and then film the land.)
*grabs the camcorder*
Time to record!
Copper Fish, I'm done!
OOH OH OOOOH! (great! Let's watch it!)
*inserting VHS tape*
Did you saw something?
OOH! EEH EEEH AAH IIIH O00H! (yes! there is the lost part!)
Alright, let's fix the machine!
*after they added the lost part*
OOH! EEH OOH UUHH! (alright! it's fixed, jump in!)
Windows 3.1 user: Hey! Why you came to my computer without asking! And, return me my VHS camcorder!
Part 6[edit | edit source]Part 6 was written by TheGlassPenguin in MS-DOS EDIT.
*Computer boots up and time machine appears*
OK, what time period are we in?
IHH (I don't know, I only see a whole lot of black out the window..)
Well, it doesn't look like Windows 1.0 to me. It also doesn't look like we're out of fuel or missing any pieces.. so, what happened?
OOH AHH! (I think..we overshot the time period. My math might be wrong..*looks at chalkboard with all sorts of complex math written on it* WE'RE IN MS-DOS!)
Crrreaak! C r A s H ! WOAAH-OOF!
EEH! (The Time Machine fell on its side! We're gonna have to get outside and push it upright!) *Copper Fish and the person get out of the machine*
OOH ! (I think you can see, but the machine is upright) *Copper Fish and the person get back inside*
EEE! AHH!OOH! (Let's see if I can fix this math...carry the 3, convert this to decimal, multiply by 200, destroy this piece of chalk...there! I think we're ready..)
Alright! Let's go!
*presses button* BEEP! WHIRRRRR!
*Traveling through time...*
Computer user: HEY! I get up to get a cup of coffee and someone gets into my computer! WHO DID IT!!??
Part 7[edit | edit source]
Part 7 was written by JackyBorderCollie on normal paper.
*Time machine falls*
umm... where are we now?
OOHIAH?! AAH! (what in the mifernites?! we're on paper!)
OOOOH! (yes, we are!)
But how?! I thought that we can travel only through Windows!
OOOH UHH (papers were before windows, so...)
There's the Time Machine!
OOH IAH! (let's go then!)
Random 4th grader: HEYY! THAT'S MY PAPER FOR HOMEWORK!!!

*Time machine fells from the sky*
OOOH UHHH (where are we now)
I don't know, but it looks more, uhh, new.
OOH UUH IIH (yes, it sure does)
I guess we are in the future! We did it!
OOH VOH AAHUOH (nope, this is windows 95)
Come on! Why can't we just get to the future!
OOH OOOH IIIOOOHHH (i don't know but we need to get out)
Copper Fish, do you see that? It looks like some story.
"This is a story I've written for a project in school"
Wow. Copper Fish, do you know how old is the person who wrote the story?
OOH OOH IOOH (no, i don't)
OOH OOH ITIH AAH OOH! OOH! OOOHH! (we need to repair the time machine! quick! find some parts or anything that could repair the time machine!)
Alright, I guess we need a wrench.
OOH? OOH IOOH?! (a wrench? dude are you serious?!)
Yes, I am. Look! We need to use the wrench here. Look! There it is!
OOH OH OOKOOH (alright alright okay then)
I'll go to the Toolbox. Yes! I found the wrench!
Let's do it? Aaand... There! It's done!
OOH OOH YEEEH!!! (let's now go to the future, yayy!!!)
3rd grader: HEYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!! WHAT YOU WERE DOING HERE???!!!! AND I HOPE YOU DIDN'T MESS UP MY STORY BECAUSE I AM WORKING ON IT SO HARD!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!
Part 9[edit | edit source]
Part 8 was written by Marc92021 on Windows XP.
(time machine spawns in)
where are we now?
OOOHH (idk, but it looks a lot more newer than before)
I think this is Windows XP
Yes but no, we still aren't in our timeline
Also we're out of fuel for the time machine.
OUUH (is that windows xp movie maker?/??/???)
Looks like it.
OA AHHHE DOHOU (maybe It has some fuel?)
Nothing in there.
OHAHA UEEH (what about the recycle bin?)
OOAHAHOOOH (hey, theres a mspaint window. maybe we can draw some fuel for it)
I'll try drawing some fuel.
DAHAOUUEEIH (epic pog)
Now we can get out of here!
Windows xp user: HEY! WHO STARTED PLAYING AROUND WITH MY MOVIE? AND WHO OPENED UP RECYCLE BIN AND DREW FUEL ON PAINT????
Part 10[edit | edit source]
Part 10 was written by TheGlassPenguin on Manjaro MATE Edition.
(time machine flips like a soda can into existence)
are...we...hey, this isn't my time!
OOH EEE AAH? (No, it isn't. In fact, I don't think this is the right OS at all!)
Do you know where we are?
OOH... (I think this is Linux!)
IIH OOH AHH EEEE OOO IIS (I don't think it existed yet in your time, so I probably shouldn't explain it...)
(something falls off the time machine, making a big crash noise)
WHAT WAS THAT?!
OOH... (Hold on, I'm looking...)
Hopefully that wasn't something that we needed...or costs a lot of money...
IIH... (Bad news, our..um...thing that keeps us in the right OS, it fell of and...broke into a million pieces.)
UHH (I could make a new one, we just need the resources...lets look around...)
Hey! Found something!
OOO (Looks like what we need...well, not exactly but it could work...)
Let's put it in the time machine and see if we can go to the right OS...
UHH (Working on it..There! It's in. It may just work for one OS hop...but not two.)
Cool! Let's get in and see where we go....
WOO (Alright, let's go! Hey, don't lean on that switch! You'll send us to Mac OS! AAAA!)
Part 11[edit | edit source]
Part 11 was written by TheGlassPenguin on Windows 3.11 with Calmira 2 installed.
(time machine glitches into existence)
OOOOOOOOH? (WHAT IN THE ANTI-MIFERNITE *120 seconds pass* KIND OF TIME IS THIS?)
I don't know...but it looks like Windows 3.1 and Windows 95 got..smushed together !
EEEEE (What is the user of this computer trying to do?)
Hey, look! What's that green thing down there?
OOH EEH IIH EEE! (That's Emerald Fish!)
He looks to be staring at that cookie, away from us...
OOH (I think I have an idea...)
EEE (Hey Emerald Fish! I'll get you that cookie if you throw that stick you're holding at the
*Emerald Fish notice, and Y E E T S the stick*
*time machine whirs back to life, and Copper Fish throws the cookie to Emerald Fish*
UUUU (Where do we go...Mac OS...hmm)
