Steve turned around startled as he felt a shallow breathing beating down on his neck.  He jumped at the sight of the zombie pair.  Steve then began hastily swinging his sword, hitting the spider and zombie several times. Steve was interrupted when the zombie cried “We’re not here for a fight! We need your help.” To Steve’s surprise the zombie was actually able to communicate with him unlike countless others he had slain beforehand. Steve, desperate for a companion in his isolated world, accepts his offer and the zombie leads him to a dark stronghold located further underground.  In the stronghold he finds a room illuminated in a bright blue color. The zombie ushers him in and Steve sees a man similar to him but much older and wiser, hunched on top of a throne. Steve cautiously approached him and asked why he was summoned here. The man’s eyes lit up with a fierce glow and bellowed “My name is Vitruvius and you, Steve, are a master builder and warrior who has defeated foes exponentially more empowered than even you yourself. I’m afraid I must ask of you to do the same yet again.” Vitruvius explained to Steve the concept of The Lego Multi-verse and the corruption of Lord Business - he would have to defeat Lord Business in order to save his world. Steve was up for the challenge and embarked upon his quest. This led to a counter-attack by Lord Business which became the demise of Minecraft.

Interesting idea; incorporating this into the LEGO movie.  I like it.  :)
Thanks :D I thought this would be a pretty cool way to tie Minecraft into the Mainstream Lego Universe glad you enjoyed :)

Cool story.
I actually thought it was a blog about the subject until I saw the description :P

My reason for MC not being in the LEGO Movie, the dad is old and didn't get into Minecraft so he didn't have any sets. Also, not many LEGO MC stuff was out yet. They were manufactured late 2014 and early 2015. The little cube sets were early 2014 but were not complete lego characters yet.

The more you know, the more you sound like a smartash. :P

Although if they just wanted to help him, why did they throw away his Ladder? xD

It was more of the fact that they needed help from him, there was always the chance that when Steve saw them he would try to book it, and get out of the cave as soon as possible, so removing the ladder was sort of an added safety measure. After all, they had to go deeper to see Vitruvius anyways.
Thanks for the question :)

Very interesting. i thoroughly enjoyed the tie-in between minecraft and the lego movie, however i believe that in one part, you can see a Minecraft grass block in the background somewhere.

Interesting, I don't think I've ever seen any sort of Minecraft block while watching The Lego Movie, and I've seen it 3 times. But, if this was the case it would still fit in with the story. In the movie it was stated that before Lord Business took over the worlds were able to mingle amongst eachother. So someone could have just taken that grass block from one world to another before he had taken over :)
But I'm glad you enjoyed the story :D
Cool story bro. (see what I did there? xD)

But seriously, I like the style in which this was written.

Thank you very much! It took a while to think of the story and so many others were already taken, so I was really trying to go for a unique take here. Glad you enjoyed :)

Nice One :D.

Though the real reason was because Minecraft Lego came out after the Lego Movie :P

But, Lego Minecraft sets were first released June 6th 2012, while The Lego Movie came out February 7, 2014.
