-okay,so in my research and writing of starfox fandom,i ran into furry fandom.now,nothing wrong with it,i'm a believer in that you can do whatever you want as long as nobody gets hurt...

anyway,starfox and furry fandom.

 

-how many people here are furries or like anthros? was starfox like a gateway to it?

 

-i'm not furry/anthro lover  per se,but i have an online friend who is and i myself have always had an appreciation for anthro art though i'll be honest,i always had a love for kemonomimi (you know,japanese manga trope,the people with the furry ears and tail,ex:inuyasha).i find it interesting ,but i didn't come to starfox because of a love for anthros or kemonomimi,but in spite of it.

Yes, Star Fox is what got me into being a furry. After playing the games and loving the *shudders* Krystal art, I figured out that yes, indeed I am a furry. From there it's just perpetuated itself.

 

So yes, StarFox and another site called Scratch was my gateway drug to the fandom all the way back in middle school ages ago.

I am a Starfox fan, but I'm not hardcore. It's the same with Star Trek. I watch the films and tv shows but I don't go to conventions and wear a Starfleet uniform.

That's a complex question. Despite my constant nagging on furries,, i am a furry. But hardly in the way the most furries are. I don't look at anthro art, i don't draw it, i don't craze over any of that. The only real reason i am a furry is because i like mice, and i think having a tail would be neat.

I'm so furry they call me Sasquatch.

 

I was introduced to the Furry Fandom by Starfox... well it really started from a Google search result. Yet Starfox and specifically Krystal magnified it to make me a full out Furry, if there is such a thing.

So yeah. Since then I enjoy a lot of the Furry fandom and all it has to offer. Maybe even one day you can hear the story of "x87."

(Well, well, well, so the forum is about to explode again the topic is up. I always feared posting about this discussion because of the one result that is already common sense, and I'm sure it'd be a flat-out Internet Backdraft.)

 

Personally I consider myself as a Furry, but always followed by "not THAT kind, though" to finish my statements, or even keeping it untold until I feel like people already know it's not of my nature to be overly excited over some exceedingly fetishic 'fan-tastic' pieces of so-called art, and I assume you know how I usually react to them.

 

Now, that I do like anthros, I do, that's a fact. I've always been fond of the comic or otherwise cute (wow, I have to use that word more often) characters that are labeled Furry to/by the public. However I never had a direct contact with a Furry-exclusive environment, nor have joined a community where those are preferable members. Mostly it's because I'm not too good at fitting into groups, but it also is noteworthy that the Furry fandom isn't quite a 100% family-friendly utopia, but labelling everything Furry as bestial, amoral or otherwise any variant of inappropriate is as accurate as saying the capital of Brazil is Buenos Aires.

 

Trope Overdosing aside, I know some Furries here on SF-O that I would never guess they were unless told otherwise, which happens upon my own 'confession'. Pretty much normal people, with normal minds, normal lives, and normal likings. Only difference is that they are Furry.

 

I must admit, I've known some Furries around (especially dA) that at first (over)look can seem just at the borderline of sane. but when you actually get to talk to them, they sound just like the average internet user. Personally, I see no reason to see them as some sort of plague, unless noted otherwise (see: 'Yiff').

 

In short words: I am a Furry and there's nothing wrong with that. Other people can be Furries if they want, and it's ultimately their decision. In case they like and are Furries of some other sort, better just not bother trying to argue with them.

[The amount of times this kind of topic has popped up over the years is staggering. :-P]

 

Yup; Star Fox, Sly Cooper, and other anthropomorphic animal character-centric works have always greatly entertained me; I adore them and with my discovery of a little thing known as "the internet" I also found out that others shared the enjoyment.  SF-O acted as a gateway of sorts.

StarFoxfan-FUR_ever

I think part of the reason I am a furry goes beyond the fact that in terms of video games, there was Star Fox and Sonic. It also comes from the fact that a lot of TV shows from my childhood involved anthropomorphic animals. Some examples were: Rocco's Modern Life, The Angry Beavers, Digimon (I know they weren't real "animals" but for me it still counts since they are based on them)...and I suppose we could include The Wild Thornberries as well. Of course, there are other examples that go as far back as the majority of the shows that were featured on Nick Jr. back in the early - mid 90's.

 

So even though I was introduced to the fandom by Sonic and immersed into it by Star Fox (in the worst possible ways, mind you @.@) I have reason to believe that I was molded in such a way as to make it easier for myself to imagine characters with human traits as represented in the form of animals. I understand that some people find stories "weird" because they are centered around animals as opposed to cartoon versions of humans.

 

Because of how much I enjoyed the SF series, I accidentally found this community. In fact, if I remember correctly, I was noticing that there was a lack of SF fan-made flash games on the internet (the SFW kind anyways...) and I had actually searched up "Star Fox Online game". The wonderfully accurate [/sarcasm] google search engine found SF-O for me. And because of my exposure to this site, I found a group of furries who weren't completely corrupted. It was like a breath of fresh air, and probably helped save me from becoming like the other part of the fandom.

Yeah I'm a furry (Pokefur to be accurate) and part of the fandom. And yes, StarFox was big main contribution gateway for my entry. (Disney back when it didn't suck as much also helped, but will not be meantioned for personal reasons that will get me frustrated)

You say that like it's a bad thing. :-P - Unless you're describing the particularly hideous and abhorrent side of that side of the fandom.  In that case I'd agree with you. xD

(@Crazyfoonic's first post: Really? Wow, I'm living under a rock it seems.)

 

Oh, and as I've trailed off into silly troping I forgot about the second part of the discussion; Yes, StarFox: Assault specifically got me into the SF fandom, which later evolved into a Sonic pathology, and a general Furry syndrome which led to my dA debut, and more legitimate Furry contact which I won't bother mentioning at the moment. More recently I've been quite interested into Pokémon, too.

Point is, SFA got me into, and my silly Furrified[?] brain thought from the trailer that Krystal was a decent character, hence the deception upon playing the games. That later evolved into the aspiration of writing fanfiction (the good kind) of StarFox, hence my decaying project crossover. The team's characters, Krystal in special, got me into a syndrome of inspiration strikes... At the most inconvenient times, when I am unable to write immediately or otherwise note it down.

 

But that's a story I'll save for a later thread. Anyway, as you see the SF fandom Furrified me by the invocation of the 'Everyone's Furry For Krystal' SF trope, in a good way, or at least, less exaggerated than most of the fans. Now flat-out Furry OrbiterSpore can be found at his natural habitat constantly talking about the Furry fandom and its hidden true arts, if not making fanworks involving Furry characters, in special Krystal and Tails. NOT to be confused with the pedophilic KrysTails shipping.

 

And personally I am quite in a anti-Furry stereotype on one hand, since I have an aversion to sites such as FA. I don't actually know what's going on there, but sometimes, given the known Furry mainstream, I REALLY don't wanna know.

 

Also:

 

You say that like it's a bad thing. :-P - Unless you're describing the particularly hideous and abhorrent side of that side of the fandom.  In that case I'd agree with you. xD

 

If you get to said point in which you, quote, lose "that little voice inside your head that keeps you from lusting after dogs", it's all downhill from there, no exemptions. Both Furry-wise, and social-wise speaking.

 

I really un-recommend following that road. Just. Don't. For the good of all of us.

Well, I first found out about the furry fandom while in the brony fandom, shortly after I gained access to the internet here at home in late 2011. I occasionally heard people mention furries, comparing bronies to them (ranging from people saying things like "bronies are closet furries" or "bronies are even worse than furries"), looked it up, and I found out what they were. It particularly troubled me shortly after finding out what a furry is that the internet tended to hate on them, as I could not understand what there was to hate. Sure, there was porn, but what fandom doesn't have porn, and why is porn such a big deal? It's not something I really understand. I found the furry fandom interesting, and I understood it wasn't all porn like the internet often likes to think, and not even the porn bothered me. As time went on, I forgot about the furry fandom for the most part. Late 2012, I played Starfox Adventures, which I loved as a game, perhaps even more than what I had played of Assault before it, and I especially loved the art. I shortly after started looking up information on Starfox, which somehow or another led me back to noticing the furry fandom, which I quickly started researching, and, in the last few months, I've decided that I was a furry. I have spent a large amount of time on furry oriented sites (FurAffinity Forums, especially, as I've found it filled with so many people that I get lots of different conversation and perspectives on things). I've found the fandom to be filled with a lot of weird people, as well as a lot of cool people.

In short, yes, I am a furry, and yes, Starfox is the reason I'm in the furry fandom now, though I was curious about it about a year before Starfox. I love some furry art, though I will admit some of it looks really weird and some of it is disgusting

 

I actually noticed today just how much I was a furry, in that I'm obsessed with the Starfox series, today bought the game Solatorobo; Red the Hunter, have been waiting for the soon Steam release of Dust: An Elysian Tail, recently watched Bagi, Monster of Mighty Nature, have been thinking about buying Spice and Wolf, and might buy Starfox Command soon. And that my favorite Disney movie was The Lion King, and that I've been wanting to see Kimba the White Lion as of late.

I'm a furry by definition, and yeah Star Fox was my window into that. People on the Star Fox fan forums I frequented in my early days on the Internet were furry or linked to furry sites and thus my awareness of anthro animals having their own fandom developed. Before that I watched a lot of cartoons that had furries as characters and loved 'em so it was certainly fertile ground for later dubbing myself a furry.

 

The irony however is that I believe myself to be skewed towards the asexual end of the spectrum, thus I fit very few of the sometimes negative stereotypes about members of the fandom. XD None the less I kinda have to be careful about how I throw around the term "furry" in regards to myself because many people I encountered while going to school clearly had negative or mocking impressions of what it means to be a furry. It was rather disheartening. :(

 

I'm kinda dissuaded from dealing with places more dedicated to furry fandom in general because dealing with horn dogs who think "Hey, wanna yiff?" is a suitable first topic for making new friends annoys the hell outta me. I tried those furry friend finder services and yeah, that was most of what I got. Rather disappointing. I'm not too good with socializing in the usual ways so building up a friend base in more natural ways doesn't come naturally to me. XD

I have friends at school who noticed I liked furry art. Now they joke about it in a rather negative way, as if I'm doing something wrong for liking such art. It's rather irritating how many people have such negative view of furries.

That's the big difference.  A member of the furry fandom generally participates in it as an outlet of fantasy of sorts.  The "point" in which you describe refers to a distinct lack of normalcy and potential deeper problems involving life and the human psyche; of which there should be a distinction made between participation in the fandom and such questionable perspectives.  One does not lead to the other.

Is he referring to people being literally attracted to dogs, or anthropomorphized dogs that look kinda human seen in the furry fandom sometimes?

Because I'm not so sure the latter would necessarily mean the person has deeper psychological problems. The former sure, but the latter, not really, cosidering the things look human like anyway.

That is precisely what I meant by that; an attraction of sorts to a provocative piece of artwork that is pretty much a human anyhow is one thing that is perfectly acceptable; the former that you mentioned and that he meant, however, is undoubtedly troubling.

I am because being human is just danged boring. How many people out there play humans in games when there are good alternatives?

 

Anthros open up many possibilities for variety. Do you go the route where it's just a clusterfuck of different animals as you see fit? Or how Jay Naylor did where species is determined by nationalities. Either way makes for much more entertainment possibilities. Especially when nonhuman characters often come with nonhuman problems.

 

Take this issue of Broken Plot Device, for example.

I used to prefer humans over any other alternative in a game since I thought most other alternatives usually look kind of ugly. Recently I've been getting out of that mindset though.

I realize the difference. The problem lies in the essential fact, that they are also Furries. All mainstream interference aside, one DOES lead to another if they have serious brain damage. Okay, that's a lie. What I'm saying is that there are extremists that have the innocent part of the fandom as a gateway, and so you see people that are extremely disgusted of humans essentially preferring Furries (which are obviously nonexistent) at that one matter. This makes them unleash their fetish side into the place where they can be everything they want, the internet. So openly, I must say, that it gets to be scary.

 

Now, that there should be a difference, there should, and there is, but cue stereotype. Good ol' stereotypes always there will trick people into thinking that, if you are Furry, you HAVE to have a thing for anthro animals. If the so-called part of the fandom you mentioned earlier on, the 'Yiff' gets drawn into places where you always know that there will be porn and stuff and will proceed into at your own risk (I.E. Facepunch, 4chan, and what FA has been turning into), then I'm okay with it since there will be nothing for me to be exposed to. Clearly there will be a consequent difference, and people will think "Hey, that person is  a Furry but never said anything about that 'Yiff' or told that hates porn, he's not a [insert pejorative stereotypical classification here]".

 

Is he referring to people being literally attracted to dogs, or anthropomorphized dogs that look kinda human seen in the furry fandom sometimes?

Because I'm not so sure the latter would necessarily mean the person has deeper psychological problems. The former sure, but the latter, not really, cosidering the things look human like anyway.

 

I'm referring to both, actually, but only to the anthro part if you are willing to literally shape your body like an anthro animal's and implant a tail. No, I'm not meaning fursuits, I'm meaning people who literally hate being human and want to be anthos. 'That just ain't right m'boi.' In this [il]logical(?) extreme you are actually hating something you can't change at the current time at least; genetics. In case in the future you get to change your body, you're laughing. But we all know that's not gonna happen, at least in three years or so. What I'm saying is, accept the truth: If you think humans are ugly, there's nothing to do about it. Now if you think you can solve your individual problem by attempting to create an unholy offspring via actual animals, then something is really wrong with you.

 

As I've mentioned before, there's a 'Furry test' that has been sighted around that wretched hive of a MemeCenter. The demotivational poster depicts a female Furry in a blatantly provocative pose and facial expression, wearing no much more than a bikini set. The label claims that 'if you get turned on because of that picture, I have bad news'. I guess I passed, since the obvious backfire on me caused more of a Squick ("squeamish ick", not to be confused with Squee, which I once in a blue Mün (or vixen) happen to do, if it's not porn or plain stupid nudity).

 

That is precisely what I meant by that; an attraction of sorts to a provocative piece of artwork that is pretty much a human anyhow is one thing that is perfectly acceptable; the former that you mentioned and that he meant, however, is undoubtedly troubling. 

 

+1 Confirm, that the human being is very easily attracted to the figure of basically anything humanoid that it finds provocative. I myself can tolerate provocative things, to a certain extent. The concept of 'sexy' that has been defined lately apparently is more of 'slutty', but in my book, it's synonymous for 'extremely attracting, otherwise pretty-looking'. Certain poses can actually make one's mind have second thoughts, like in my latest Garry's Mod picture to-date in which a sticky situation can lead to a wrong assumption, when the actual context is more of comical/mocking intents. I can perfectly tolerate someone making a joke that is just a bit over the line, but go and say to me 'fap fap fap' or 'hey wanna yiff' and you're sure getting a ***killion rants at you, and possibly a bad opinion from me; which will mean you'll get a deadpan snarker, (not-so) harmless troll, spockish guy, straw Vulcan and consequent annoyance at your head. I'll use everything I and even you have against yourself and eventually a Chewbacca Defence will be used to ruin your argument. If you take it to the amoral rock bottom of wanting either about non-anthro animals or child Furries and want to involve me, write that down; ALL HELL WILL BREAK LOOSE AT YOU.

 

Being the stereotypical personality figure of a conservative guy, yes, I am very biased in some matters. On the other hand, when I see only the tendency which I snipe at, not the person, is and feels wrong, I am more open to a flexible workarounds. Think of it as 'you have your line, I have mine, we can both get along if we don't cross each other's. Friends?'.

 

 

 

-snip-

 

I agree on that one point. I may not be as Furry enough to go out tattooing paws on my shoulder or writing 'furry' to my hand, but I understand the concept that when you have the option to use that as a device to enhance variety and creativity, it's not any kind of crime. Referral goes back to where I said, in the internet, there's no holds barred unless told otherwise. As much as it sometimes feels awkward to have a conversation on another forum where I don't really know if [X User Group] will accept me as a Furry, since I know how they may see the fandom, but I generally try (note, try) to avoid the subject unless I know the person is a liberal or doesn't really know much of the fandom at all.

 

Thinking a bit outta the box, not exactly related to the subject, but relevant:

 

User: Do you know what a Furry is?

 

CleverBot: A furry is someone who thinks they are an animal.

 

User: I figured you'd say that. It's a stereotyped assumption. Not very clever, you know.

I like anthro characters, but I do not consider myself a furry. I have created some characters before, but none of them represent me and I wasn't really serious about them either.

From what I see, what makes a furry is someone who likes to imagine themselves as an anthro character. The whole "fursona" thing, if you will.

There's also the whole furry subculture which I have no desire to be part of. Not having a character but participating in this culture I think also qualifies one for the "furry" label.

I look at it in a similar light; I do have anthropomorphic role-play characters and do participate in the occasional role play - strictly in a character playing form, however.  It is nice to break from the boring aspects of daily routine in the same way that Vydrach described, and, in essence, "become" something that holds fascinating attributes that you could never be IRL.  I admire the varying pieces of anthro-artwork for the same reason; I enjoy the overall designs/forms, freedoms associated with them, etc.  No harm done there. :-P

      Star Fox Chronicles, a two chapter tale
      It was a high strung day in the Great Fox Mothership. Everyone in Team Star Fox had been hyper. For one thing, it had been an unusually busy month for them. It seemed as if every five days or so a new alert would pop up on the transmission screen. Whether it was shutting down facilities that had been taken over by the few remaining Aparoids, chasing down Star Wolf, rescuing a planets inhabitants from invading evil forces, or even finding General Pepper's favorite missing uniform badge, the Star Fox team had not been able to catch a break to say the least. So, with that having been said, Fox Mcloud was sitting in the comfy lavish couch of the Great Fox Mothership, attempting to relax. His revenue was not as high as he had initially hoped for, as he had blundered some of his recent missions due to not being able to keep up with all of them. He had wanted to take Falco and Peppy on an extended golfing trip to Fortuna. Fox kicked back on the couch, pulling his socks off and after putting his feet on a stool, he sipped his soda.
      "I am going to enjoy this weekend if it kills me, and I do mean that literally" Fox muttered to himself. Just then Falco sat by him.
      "Hey Foxster, look I know you're minding your own business Fox, but we gotta talk now" said Falco. Fox spewed his soda out of his mouth.
      "Don't tell me, General Pepper's hologram again?" asked Fox.
      "No. I just couldn't help but notice that you're lazing around when you said you were gonna repair my Arwing today" replied Falco.
      "It's already fixed. I just need to spruce up the fuselage and tweak the engine a bit" said Fox.
      "What? You mean you're not gonna fix it today?" asked Falco. "Ha, typical of you, Fox"
      "Look Falco, I'm trying to relax here, it's been a stressful week for all of us" said Fox.
      "It has? I'm holding together pretty well. Everyone else has been too. Can you pass the potato chips?" asked Falco. Suddenly, Peppy Hare burst out of the upper hallway of the Great Fox and raced downstairs putting on his best coat.
      "Enemy ships? Where? Don't start without me!" said Peppy, proving once and for all that the Star Fox team was not holding itself together well at all.
      "No! P-O-T-A-T-O. Potato. Potato chips." said Falco.
      "I don't get it," said Peppy. "I don't know what those things are"
      "Fine then, be that way" said Falco, brushing off Peppy's apparent perceived weirdness.
      "We're gonna try to relax today, old man" said Fox.
      "Yeah, I guess I am getting old, aren't I?" said Peppy, sighing, and wiping a tear out of his eye.
      "Hey you wanna join us?" asked Fox.
      "No, I'll be fine, I'm just gonna go turn on the jupebox a bit and sulk around thinking about the past" said Peppy. Fox raced up to Peppy.
      "Nah, Pepster. You just need some pep talk. People need pep talk, pep talk is what makes people peppy!" said Fox.
      "Pa-pa-pep talk? You're serious?" asked Peppy.
      "As serious as I can be. Live up to your namesake! You're not old at all, in fact, you're gonna keep going and going and going forever!" said Fox, handing Peppy a self help pamphlet and four hundred Corneria bucks.
      "Those were some of the best fruits of my commissions, old pal. Don't sweat it, buy the little lady something nice with that" said Fox.
      "Yeah, hold on a minute, let me count this out. Thanks Fox, you're a swell interstellar feller. Um, as for the lady, what lady?" asked Peppy. Fox shrugged.
      "Anyway, feel better Peppy you're not too old" said Fox. Peppy's ears seemed perkier and he sat down on the couch with Fox and Falco.
      "I wonder what's on the tube today" said Peppy reaching for the TV remote. Falco turned his head towards Fox.
      "So, Fox, about my Arwing. See, Katt Monroe wanted me to take her to Fortuna this weekend to see the ocean. Her craft got eaten by one of
      Andross's robots and in just a few hours she's gonna be here" said Falco.
      "Can't deal with it," said Fox, helping Peppy figure out where the dubbed Macbethian soap operas were and how to navigate through them.
      "Do a-do a, achoo!" sneezed Peppy. Falco jumped in the air, sprawling his feathers everywhere, yelling.
      "I'll get you a tissue, Pepster" said Fox, reaching for a tissue. Falco just chuckled mischeviously.
      "You were saying, Mr. Peppy?" asked Falco.
      "Do a barrel roll! God it feels good to say that after all these years" said Peppy.
      "Well, there was that time you were locked in a padded cell saying that over and over, believing you were dictating commands to the team" said Falco.
      "Shut up Falco, he overcame his PTSD years ago" said Fox.
      "Hey, cool it, I'm on his side. One hundred and ten percent. But Katt Monroe wanted me to take her to Fortuna this weekend, and I can't take her there without my Arwing" explained Falco.
      "Grr, oh for gosh sake, I'll go get my tools and head for the docking area" said Fox.
      "That's more like it Mr. Fix it!" said Falco.
      "For the love of the galaxy Falco, please do not call me that" replied Fox, rummaging through his tool shed.
      "Where did I put the spare parts for the attenuator, darn it. Oh, there they are. Never mind!" said Fox, continuing to search for parts.
      "Fox, Fortuna's just a half an hour away don't blow this" said Falco. Fox swore under his breath, and muttered angry things in Corneria language.
      "Falco please be reasonable, I'm trying to help you" said Fox.
      "Peppy, I'm gonna need somebody with your decades of experience to come help me sort this stuff out" said Fox.
      "Good, I see the enemy core" said Peppy. Fox's eyes were in shock.
      "What did you say?" asked Fox. Peppy laughed. "Nothin, just pullin' yer leg"
      Meanwhile, Miyu Lynx was hanging upside down like a bat, she was also playing catch with Slippy using a magic 8 ball.
      "Catch the ball you calf-frog!" said Miyu.
      "I am not a calf-frog I'm a full grown bullfrog!" said Slippy.
      "The day I stop calling you a calf-frog is the day Rob64 stops constantly complimenting me on my perfume!" replied Miyu.
      "Then I quit!" said Slippy, sobbing.
      "Aww, don't feel bad. Come back. Oh well, I think I'm gonna take a nice hot bubble bath" said Miyu, who was unusually perky and happy for reasons not yet known. Was she in love with someone?
      Later...in the darkest corners of the universe...
      We join a briefing room within the Grand oblivion Mothership of Emperor Andross, Wolf O' Donnel and Leon. Panther and Pigma were on holiday. Yeah.
      "Welcome. O'Donnel and Leon? Front and center! Now then, gentlemen, I, the great and noble Emperor Andross shall have you both realize that this is a fully committed fraternity that relies soley on the upmost strength, integrity, and dedication of its members. As you are both well aware, the Star Fox team is still causing trouble for our beloved Venom and its neighbors. Soon we will be unable to occupy or colonize any planet in need of our services, and I fear that day drawing ever near. Fox and his notorious group of space bandits survived our deliciously unscrupulousattack on Eladard. Here is a detailed schematic of all your failings. Phantron, powerpoint please" ordered Andross. Phantron was a tiny robot who helped Andross for no rewards or monetary compensation because he did a very poor job of helping the emperor most of the time.
      "Not that picture!" said Andross, kicking Phantron right in the nuts and bolts. He fell over in a scrap heap. Wolf glanced down at Phantron with a look of pity.
      "Does your robot need help, Andross?" asked Wolf.
      "Yes, the uncanny assistance of your repulsive face!" said Andross,
      picking up a discombobulated Phantron and throwing the train wreck of an excuse for an automaton directly
      at Wolf. Wolf fell over.
      "Get it off me, get it off me" yelled Wolf, rolling on the floor. Andross rolled his eyes, and pushed a button activating Phantron's torture device.
      Phantron began inserting excruciatingly sharp electronic needles into Wolf's body.
      "Aaaaaugh. You're horrible, emperor. Horrible!" said Wolf.
      "Haha, yes, I know" said Andross with a proud pompus glare.
      "Get your insipid machine off me" said Wolf. Leon laughed.
      "Don't get your flipping fur all frazzled. I think he likes you. My, this is fun to watch" said Leon.
      "Leon, get the robot off of Wolf" said Andross. Leon was deriving sick pleasure from watching Wolf suffer, as usual.
      "Leon! You obey the me! The emperor! You fight for the emperor, you live for the emperor, you are a soldier for the emperor, remember?" yelled Andross.
      "Yes, Master, sorry. Here Wolf, let me help you" said Leon, pulling the robot off of Wolf's face.
      "There, there!" said Leon wiping Wolf's face clean with a napkin from his delectable Planet Borgalort cold beef sandwich, that he was munching on.
      "Gentlemen, are you finished? Good. I'll handle the presentation from here onwards. As we were saying, the Star Fox team is still not out of commission. They continue to do their dirty work all across the universe, making it increasingly and relentlessly difficult for us to pursue our goals of interplanetary domination and conquest. The galaxy will never know true might, leadership, and power until we eradicate them and those who approve of their reckless ways. Be aware that the Galactic Federation knows full well that I intend to use some of the populace here on Venom as scientific research projects to create super soldiers for my army, on a strictly voluntary basis of course. I did not want to resort to such methods but your repeated failures have led me to wonder about my own convictions and now I see full well that you two are incapable, incompetant, and downright lousy!You will be sent out my air lock chamber soon if you fail your next mission. Go destroy Star Fox. Seek out, kill, and destroy, and don't come back here until every last Cornerian is brought to me" ordered Andross.
      "Your majesty, every single Cornerian? Beamed to your mothership? What for? Are you lonely?" asked Wolf.
      "A good soldier doesn't question," said Andross, rubbing his palms together in a contemplative fashion. "Destroy Star Fox and round up every last Cornerian citizen and bring them all to me. Use the Space Dynamics multi-billion dollar Galactic Sweeper Beaming Device I have installed on your ship to do so. This is an order. You do it if you value Venom, and if you value your life!" said Andross with an evil grin.
      Back with the good guys:
      "It's all fixed up, Falco" said Fox.
      "That's great and all, but Katt Monroe was supposed to be here an hour ago, and I can't find my cell phone to call her with" replied Falco.
      "Well, that's a problem I guess. But, then again, Peppy's a veteran in need of care and I have to get him his spagetti and meatballs" replied Fox.
      "It's ok, Fox. I'll just stick to this baloni sandwich I found in the fridge. It's an old salty dog, just like me" said Peppy, eating.
      "oh no!" said Falco, looking out the window with a look of horror. He saw his phone floating through space.
      "I'll go get that thing!" said Fox, putting on his uniform and racing to his Arwing. He saw a note that read the following:
      "You'll be shot down if you miss a beacon. Gone to watch Miss Laleethia Levanorsi sing Corneria the beautiful at Sargasso. Love, yours truly, SLOB64"
      "Slob64, my old derogatory nickname for Rob64. Ha. Anyway, I gotta get going"
      Later...
      Fox reached out of ship while wearing his protective suit and pulled the cellphone back in. He laughed as he read the texts that got Falco's
      feathers in a frantic fit.
      "Falco, you are such an idiot, such a card" said Fox chuckling. "But I forgive you, you loveable scamp!" he added.
      Back in the mothership, upstairs, we join a very kind-hearted bathing beauty in a serene spa-like room full of plant life and statues and meditation CD's scattered about!
      The beautiful and impeccable space princess, spa owner, pilot, book author, and well-known Cornerian philanthropist Miyu Lynx was
      upstairs in a bubbling and warm hot tub relaxing herself. She had just finished washing her legs with a sponge, watering her plants and had been listening to some really good beepy tech-ish music, if you follow. She took a deep breath, and exhaled, slowly sinking herself into the water.
      "Ahhhh, I love everyone and everything" said Miyu. Her pet bird Pindove squawked.
      "That's my girl. She loves everyone, and everything" said Pindove.
      "Yeah, yes, I sure do" said Miyu in a breathy voice.
      "Wait does that mean you love me too? For realz?" said Pindove, blushing.
      "Sure does, Pindove. I'd never eat you, cuz I'm just too sultry for poultry" said Miyu. She splashed her hands around in the water happily. Then she looked at her palms.
      "I have such incredible hands" said Miyu.
      "Hands. Yes. Incredible, maybe. But I'd say flawless and superior"
      "Ohhh, Pindove, I am the light, you are the darkness, the world is my seed crystal and Katina was so sublime before the emperor seized it" said Miyu.
      "Squawk! So sublime, so sublime" replied the bird.
      "I wish this day would never end. I shant ever be happier" said Miyu. Suddenly, her door broke down, and Falco raced through the room yelling in some ancient alien language. Miyu screamed.
      "Eeeeep!" shrieked Miyu.
      "Where is it?" yelled Falco.
      "Eep! Eeeeep!" Miyu screamed again. Falco raced from one end of the room to the other repeatedly, knocking his head against the wall as he did so,
      tossing plant pots to and fro.
      "Get out of here now, whatever you are, you bad intruder!" said Miyu, throwing a bar of soap at Falco.
      "Fa-Fa-Falckie? Falckie is that you?" asked Miyu. Falco took one look at the cute and sweet Miyu in her bikini.
      "Falckie, are you okay?" asked Miyu. Falco's eyes were widened, and his right eye was twitching repeatedly.
      "Falckie, it's okay Falckie, Falckie? Falckie?" asked Miyu. Miyu splashed water at Falco, causing Falco to go crazy and start looking in all directions
      like a chicken with its head cut off, frantically licking and biting his wings.
      "No need to get your feathers in a fluster, Falckie. Go back to your post okay, Falckie?" said Miyu. Falco's right eye just kept on twitching, and he finally unfroze his body and broke out of his darn near catatonic state and once again became madly energized, running from wall to wall, giving himself head injuries in the process, until finally he landed in the water, doing a cannonball and splashing nearly all of it out of the tub. As his feathers began feeling the bubbling, he squawked repeatedly, flapping his wings, struggling to swim around to get to the surface as more water flew out of the tub. Finally there was no more water, the room was a swimming pool, and Falco was flopping around like a fish while Miyu tried to reassure him that he was not a fish.
      "You can stop now," said Miyu. Falco looked like he was struggling to breathe, Miyu tossed a mint into Falco's mouth and he spit it out in her face.
      Miyu put a towel on and ran out of the room, racing down into the living room with Peppy.
      "He's lost it, Pepperoni. I was in a vane romantic wonderland until that bird went crazy and barged in while I was having the greatest moment of my life!" said Miyu.
      "Wha-what's that?" asked Peppy, who seemed to be in a television induced coma.
      "Oh no, not you too" said Miyu
      "Huh? Oh, Miyu. Help yourself, there's good stuff in the freezer, I'm just worried about Fox is all" said Peppy.
      "Worried about Foxy? Really? What's he up to, Gramps?" asked Miyu.
      "It's nothing. He's on a bit of a wild goose chase though, pumpkin.
      He's out in his Arwing chasing Falco's cell phone through outer space" said Peppy.
      "That...makes...sense" said Miyu in a sarcastic sassy tone.
      "It's all part of the sacred Cornerian duty" explained Peppy. Falco came flopping down the stairs, and landed on the floor face-up, opening and
      closing his beak repeatedly, and begging for water and pain killers. Then Fox came back in his Arwing, landed, came out, and ran into
      the living room.
      "Falco, I got your cell phone! Here ya go!" said Fox. Miyu pointed at the bird on the floor. Falco looked dead as a doornail. Fox could not believe his eyes.
      "Falco, are you okay?" asked Fox.
      "He'll be okay he just needs some good iced tea. Iced tea always helps. Fry him a pancake maybe" suggested Peppy.
      "No, don't fry him a pancake, Pepperoni's just messing with ya, he likes to do that, I should know, he and I are close!" said Miyu.
      "Well, I think he's probably okay. He was like this when we were room-mates back in the academy sometimes before finals" said Fox.
      "Yeah, it's just all this stress, I think" said Miyu.
      "We're gonna have to build a monument to him. He was a good feller!" said Peppy.
      "You mean like that monument we built for Slippy once when we thought he died? Cut it out Peppy!" said Fox.
      "Blur-blur-wing blabbit!" said Falco, speaking jibberish.
      "Wing blabbit? He's talking jibberish, that can't be good!" said Fox.
      Suddenly, a transmission appeared on screen:
      Fox, this is General Pepper. Andross is at it again, he's ordered the Star Wolf team to capture top secret Cornerian military equipment and
      sell it on the black market in order to aquire funds to build a doomsday device capable of beaming up every citizen of our planet into
      his mothership for some sort of purpose of which we know nothing about. You must head for Corneria at once, it is in grave danger.
      I promise your paycheck will be enough to pay the rent.
      "Oh my goodness, that's just what I needed to hear" said Fox. Miyu comforted Fox.
      "It'll be okay. We'll all get through this somehow" said Miyu. She glanced over at Falco.
      "Did he just burp?" asked Miyu.
      "Yes, I think he did," replied Fox. Miyu decided to hug Falco.
      "You poor poor innocent birdie you didn't deserve this! Foxy woxy found your phone, yes he did" said Miyu, kissing Falco's beak. Falco turned red, and began racing through the ship. Then Fox held up his phone, and threw it behind the sofa.
      "Go get it boy! Go get the phone!" said Fox. Falco chased after the phone like a hunting dog, and brought it to Miyu, looking up at her with
      intense approbation, honor, and respect.
      "Falckie, you've never really acted like THIS around me before!" said Miyu, biting her lower lip. She had only seen him behave this way around Katt or Fox.
      "Falco, cut it out. That's your phone, not hers! Snap out of it!" said Fox, snapping his fingers. As soon as Falco heard Fox's fingers snap, he came back to his senses. Then Fox relayed the message from General Pepper, Then Fox relayed the message from General Pepper. They weren't required for another hour or so, so Falco took a bath to relax.
      In Falco's tub:
      Falco was lathering his feathers when suddenly a giant machine arose from the water. It was the Blue Marine in its primitive state. Slippy
      had been testing it out in the hot tub, but this time it was on purpose to help Miyu get revenge on Falco.
      "Oh crud, jeez laweez, what the heck is that?" said Falco. The machine chased him, taking photos of his tail feathers as he ran. As Falco raced downstairs
      in a fit yet again, Miyu and Slippy laughed and high fived each other.
      "Put her there, you big bad bullfrog you!" said Miyu to Slippy.
      THIS STORY HAS TWO CHAPTERS! GO TO CHAPTER 2 NOW! Lol. Or get yourself a cup of coffee first.
      Pepper was seated in his office, chomping roughly on taffy and assorted candies. The walls were lined with
      quotes from many past Cornerian generals. He seemed rather cool and collected, but hiding underneath that
      exterior was a ferrocious commanding warrior hound with an incredible spirit. Pepper and Peppy often tossed back various strategies
      to one another, then relayed them to the rest of the team.
      "Good day, Peppy. I've worked out something that should prove to do well for the team's effort. If you have any questions, just ask" said Pepper.
      "Howdy. Well, alright then" said Peppy, seating himself directly opposite Pepper. Pepper slid over a piece of paper detailing the route he determined that the team should take.
      "What do you think? Does it meet your satisfaction?" asked Pepper.
      "Well, I'll tell ya one thing it meets sir, it meets mah eyeballs" replied Peppy.
      "Still working it out, I see. Have some taffy, good for what ails ya. In fact, one of these taffies before the toils of war saves us from gallons
      of blood on the battlefield, I swear by it to this day" said Pepper. Peppy unwrapped the taffy that the general gave to him and began chewing it while
      looking over the strategy.
      "Sir, I-I-I," Peppy could not finish his sentence.
      "Out with it you blasted bunny rabbit, what is it?" yelled Pepper, slamming the desk.
      "Well sir, it's just that I have an idea for a minor alteration to your plan" said Peppy.
      "What's wrong with it?" asked Pepper. Peppy pulled out a small crayon and began drawing over things, and then showed Pepper the piece of paper.
      "You think the team should go to Fortuna before Macbeth? You're mad!" said Pepper.
      "Listen sir, I know there's a lot of gigantic dinosaurs on Fortuna with helmets and shields and if we could conquer Macbeth first and take back that weapon Andross stole from your artillary base, we'd have a better chance against the dinosaurs. Also, think about it, it's a sneakier way to approach Venom, I happen to have stolen some of Andross's plans, and he's expecting the Star Fox team to take the first route, not the third" explained Peppy. Pepper looked over Peppy's new plan.
      "Bravo, sir. But hogwash. Are you blind, bunny boy? I wasn't planning on taking the team through the first route, in fact my spies
      fed Andross the phony intelligence that we were gonna go that way. Though I commend your sense of strategy, you're overlooking an important detail. We don't have enough fighters to
      deploy to free the rest of the galaxy. Also, if you look over my notes and blueprints you'll see that Fox will enter the black hole after
      setting out from the second route. Bottom line, we don't have enough fighters yet!" said Pepper.
      "Yes we do. I read in the Widow's Nebula that some members of Star Wolf have defected from Andross and are willing to help" said Peppy.
      "That's a bunch of hooey I don't believe it for a second" said Pepper, spitting his taffy in anger.
      "well, I see your point, General" said Peppy.
      "I should hope you do, sir. Content of character is very important to me. I've dealt with enough turncoats and traitors in my day" said Pepper.
      "What if I cloned myself into some kinda fancy souped up super weapon?" asked Peppy.
      "It is the unconquerable soul of a soldier, not the nature of the weapon he uses, that insures victory" replied Pepper.
      "Well I'll be, the unconquerable soul of a soldier, how bout that. Guess that's why we're outnumbered" said Peppy.
      "What did you say? Listen Peppy, my plan will work with some tweaking. The second wormhole in the Asteroid belt leads to a timeline in which
      our military is much more advanced" said Pepper.
      "I see. Well, maybe I'm just getting too old for this. How bout a corn dog and a cold beef sandwich?" asked Peppy.
      Peppy began devouring his corn dog ravenously.
      "Yeehaw, lord bless mah soul, this is the best meal I've ever eaten" said Peppy.
      "It may be your last. Eat heartily" said Pepper.
      "Well, I'm on my way now. Gotta go relay all this stuff to the team" said Peppy, getting into his Arwing.
      "Wait sir, I forgot to warn you of the warphole to Fichina on your way back to the Great Fox...oh well" said Pepper.
      As Peppy left, his only regret was that he failed to share his new chili recipe with the general.
      In a dark room, sitting at a table, the SF team planned their mission. Each member was sipping coffee and soda and enjoying themselves, for a while,
      then they began to wonder what was taking Peppy so long.
      "Where's the Pepster? I kinda miss him a little" said Miyu, pressing her nails against the table.
      "He's probably getting the map from the general. It should outline our course for this mission" replied Fox.
      "I think we should go the third route this time and take Andross by surprise" suggested Falco.
      "The last time we took the third route I had a disasterous experience with Wolf O' Donnel" replied Fox.
      "Oh, I'm sorry to hear that Fox. I really need to learn to shut my big beak" said Falco.
      "Yeah, ya do!" said Fox.
      "Ca-ca-ca-can I say something?" asked Slippy.
      "Sure, Slip!" said Fox, flipping a quarter in the air and making it land on his nose. He then began spinning it on his nose.
      "I just wanted to say that I'm glad we're all here and that we should be thankful we have each other" said Slippy.
      "Yay, hugs all around!" said Miyu. Falco groaned, but Fox just chuckled.
      "Anything else, Slippy?" asked Fox.
      "Well, I was just gonna agree that trying to one up Andross by taking the third route might not be the best idea, there
      are black holes and time warps and things on that third route" said Slippy, stuttering. Miyu sipped her soda.
      "Peppy's late, he's usually here by now to chart the course and show us where we're going" said Miyu.
      "You know how Peppy is," said Falco. "He's probably asleep in a luxury hotel on Eladard or something. Peppy is anything but his namesake!"
      "Don't trash Peppy. He's the smartest, most wise and considerate guy I've ever met in my life, second only to you, Falco!" said Fox in a sarcastic tone.
      "Bushy tail, you earned yourself a cold beef sandwich!" said Miyu, tossing Fox a sandwich.
      "Thanks Miyu, this is delicious!" said Fox, taking a huge bite out of his sandwich. Miyu snapped her fingers, and another sandwich fell into the room.
      "There was more where that came from. Who else wants some sandwiches?" asked Miyu.
      "I sa-sa-sa-sorta want one. With some ba-ba-ba-ba-barbecue sauce, that'd be nice" said Slippy.
      "So you want barbecue sauce manufactured by the sheep people of the Baa Baa Galaxy or what?" asked Falco
      Later, after much sandwich eating soda sipping fun...
      "Well, Peppy isn't coming apparently, I tried to communicate to him on the messenger and his screen went to static!" said Slippy. But Falco was playing cards with Robert, and Fox and Miyu were having too much fun feeding one another to pay attention to Slippy.
      "Pour me some more Ginger Basil Grapefruit spitzer, Miyu!" said Fox.
      "Coming right up, your majesty" said Miyu, pouring Fox's drink. Fox guzzled it down, as Miyu deposited a grape in his mouth. Then she poured more
      spitzer into his glass, and into her glass as they toasted.
      "Some cheese with it?" asked Miyu.
      "Cheese would be great, you know in case you didn't know I love cheese" replied Fox.
      "To a long long riveting romance" said Miyu putting on a pretend accent of some sort, as she and Fox toasted again.
      "I gotta hand it to you Miyu, you're great at arranging little get togethers like this!" said Fox. Falco could not stop chuckling, and Slippy was
      about to panic.
      "I don't arrange the get togethers mah lord. They arrange me, but then I get back at em and one up em with my devout sense of preperation and
      servitude to the cause!" said Miyu.
      "Yeah, well, you're the best Miyu. Say Falco, we should all get together like this more often" said Fox.
      But Falco was playing cards:
      "Two aces, Rob!" said Falco. Slippy thwacked Falco with a frying pan.
      "Tell Fox and Miyu to get their ba-ba-ba butts into high gear now!" said Slippy.
      "Oh, okay. Yeah, good point" said Falco.
      "Tell them, now! Peppy's screen is static, his ship might have been shot down for all we know" said Slippy.
      "Okay Slip. Say Fox, have you forgotten something Fox? This is not a get together. It sure as hell wasn't arranged by Miyu! And the fate of the galaxy is at stake here.
      Is there something about cheese and grapefruit spitzer that sends you two off the deep end or something?" asked Falco.
      "The deep has no end, it keeps unraveling itself with one more tangled web, each getting more tangled and intricately woven than the other" replied Miyu.
      "Hahaha, my sentiment exactly," replied Fox, slamming the table with his fist.
      "Oooh, careful Foxy. Careful!" said Miyu.
      "We're doomed!" said Slippy.
      "Not necessarily. I've got a bullhorn for these silly tipsy whipsies!" said Falco. Falco used his bullhorn.
      "YOW! Falco, what are you doing?" yelled Fox.
      "Trying to bring you back into reality. Things are actually pretty grim right now we don't know where Peppy is!" said Falco.
      "Alas, poor Peppy," said Miyu, leaning back and staring into her fancy glass.
      "Remember that one time when he didn't show up till morning?" asked Fox.
      "Yeah, I do actually. But we should probably go meet with the General on his ship and get an update just to be safe" said Falco.
      So the team got their act together and flew their Arwings to meet with General Pepper.
      "Hello team. All the intelligence data and indications are that Peppy has gotten himself stranded on
      Planet Fichina in the middle of a blistering snowstorm! He doesn't even have a coat!" said Pepper.
      "What do you suggest we do sir?" asked Fox.
      "I don't suggest. I give orders.
      I order Miyu and Slippy to head towards Fichina, while Fox and Falco go and take out the Attack Carrier that has invaded Cornerian airspace" said
      General Pepper. Fox gave a military salute to Pepper.
      "Yes sir, Pepper sir" said Fox. He and Falco raced to their Arwings. Miyu and Slippy hesitantly teamed up, and went to their respective ships.
      We join Miyu and Slippy:
      "So, Slippy, this might be our first mission together, huh?" said Miyu.
      "Blurbitt!" replied Slippy. Miyu moved the Crystal Stick into gear and steered the ship into Fichina.
      "Blurbitt, huh? I like that actually" said Miyu. Suddenly, something came over Slippy as they entered Fichina's foggy atmosphere.
      "You missed a gold ring!" yelled Slippy trying to take charge of the Arwing's control pad.
      "No I didn't, Slipster what the heck are you doing?" yelled Miyu. Slippy sent the ship hurtling towards the ground, and Miyu jumped out and grabbed
      Slippy with her in a parachute. They both hit the ground and watched their Arwing blow up into smithereens.
      "Slippy, what was that?" asked Miyu.
      "I think it's just my allergies" replied Slippy.
      "Oh, yeah, terrific, Slipknot. You do realize you just got yourself the pink slip from me" said Miyu.
      "Is that a reward?" asked Slippy.
      "No, it's um, like, the opposite?" said Miyu.
      "You mean I'm still a calf frog in your eyes? Even after the little trick I hel[ped you orchestrate?"
      "Oh, Slippy, I'm a lynx, you're a frog, you know?" said Miyu.
      "Fair point" conceded Slippy. Miyu held Slippy's hand and attempted to comfort him as they trudged forward into the snow towards the red dot
      on their radar.
      Later...
      A giant missile nearly hit Slippy and sent him flying off far far away.
      Miyu entered the base, shown as a little red "dot" on her GPS navigator. She zapped all the guards with her ray gun and freed Peppy who was in a giant
      cage.
      "Pepster Pops, you're alive!" said Miyu, hugging Peppy.
      "Yeah, well hold on a minute pumpkin puss, I gotta check my pulse. Yeah. I'm still alive" replied Peppy.
      "Peppy, we've gotta find a way off of this planet. Did the baddies take your Arwing?" asked Miyu.
      "Remind me what a-what a...Arwing, as you call it, what is that thing anyway?" asked Peppy.
      "Oh, Peppy. You know what an Arwing is. Let's get out of here and get lunch!" suggested Miyu.
      Miyu and Peppy went to the Fichina Diner.
      "Miyu and Peppy, your tables are ready!" said a voice. Miyu and Peppy raced to their tables. Peppy looked over the menu. The waitress came over.
      "Hi, my name is Bloomeelia Glowdentissa, I'll be serving you today, how can I help you?" asked a cat girl in a maids outfit.
      "I'll have mashed potatoes with gravy and some beans" said Peppy.
      "Fichina's finest! And how may I help you?" said Bloomeelia, glancing at Miyu.
      "Grapefruit," said Miyu. "Just...grapefruit!"
      "Good choice! My friend Rallassa almost exclusively orders grapefruit here every time! I'll be right back!" said Bloomeelia.
      "So, Miyu, I've been thinkin, you know I have this chili recipe I'm thinkin' about perfecting once the war is over" explained Peppy.
      "Oooh, that sounds heavenly. Do tell me more" said Miyu, batting her eyelashes and gazing into Peppy's eyes.
      "Yeah. I'm thinkin' it needs some good ol' fashioned old time Cornerian spices" said Peppy.
      "Can't have enough of those," said Miyu, filing her fingernails.
      "Yeah. Some thyme maybe. Meatballs!" yelled Peppy, slamming the table. Bloomeelia came back with the mashed potatoes and grapefruit.
      "Thank you kindly Miss" said Peppy.
      "Yes thank you, rock on!" said Miyu.
      "You too, funky soul sister!" said Bloomeelia.
      "Do you and her know each other?" asked Peppy.
      "I ran into her once back in Academy. She dropped out early on though to become a sorceress" said Miyu. Miyu pressed the grapefruit against her mouth and
      nose and buried her face in it, soaking in the divine goodness of the moment.
      "Anyway, so I've got this chili thing all planned out" said Peppy.
      "Is your rabbit friend okay?" asked Bloomeelia.
      "He gets like this. His memory is fried" replied Miyu.
      "Well, I'm a sorceress and if I know one thing about memory, doing a special thing you haven't done in years usually gets your memories
      jogging like biscuit fueled fiends!" said Bloomeelia.
      "That gives me an idea of how we'll get the Arwing back from that base!" said Miyu.
      Later...
      "Peppy, you know your Arwing is in there, just because it's heavily guarded doesn't mean we can't get in there" said Miyu.
      "So many guards. Course, there are those barrels over there" said Peppy.
      "Exactly," replied Miyu. "We're gonna have to do it"
      "Get who to do what?" asked Peppy.
      "We're gonna do a barrel roll gosh darn it! I've waited my whole life for this chance" said Miyu.
      "I'm too old, Miyu" yelled Peppy.
      "No you're not!" said Miyu.
      "I'm not?" asked Peppy.
      "No, I think you're as prepped, ready, and as peppy as you've ever been" said Miyu, pushing Peppy into a barrel. She got into the barrel with him.
      "This is a tight squeeze. Crammed in here, but not bad. Not bad at all actually" said Peppy. The two began rolling down the hill, and they sent most
      of the guards running home, flattening some, to a degree. The barrel finally smashed into a wall and broke open.
      And there...in the midst of all...was the Arwing of Peppy, inside the base. Miyu and Peppy raced into the base.
      "Well, we did it, we did a barrel roll together" said Peppy, brushing off his pants.
      "Oh, Peppy. What would Vivian Hare think?" asked Miyu.
      "Who?" said Peppy, confused.
      "Ugh, do we need to do another barrel roll?" yelled Miyu.
      "I don't know but it never pays to underestimate Star Fox, that's for sure" said Peppy. Peppy was about to get into his Arwing
      with Miyu and fly off into the
      sunset when suddenly the dome like base's doors automatically shut, and a vortex appeared.
      Wolf and Falco came out of it.
      "Well well, look what the monsoons brought in. You know it's rather fitting that it end like this, as this planet
      is now the headquarters of Emperor Andross's entire base of operations. I'm only telling you this because I'm confident
      we will defeat both of you" said Wolf, putting out a cigarrette. He held a ray gun up to Peppy and Miyu and proceeded
      to tie them up.
      "You'll never get away with this, Bird Man and Wolf" said Peppy.
      "Falcky's joined up with Wolf and Andross? What the heck is going on?" said Miyu.
      "That can't possibly be Falco, his feathers are too ruffled" said Peppy.
      "No, it's really me. Been tempted to do this for ages, Fox always tried to one up me, he
      thought he had the upper hand of the deck, but now I'm the ace of spades. I now know the truth, that
      Pepper's been playing you all for fools and has you all eating out of his paws like termites, he broke the deal
      he had with Andross, not the other way around" said Falco.
      "Oh please, next you're gonna tell me Fox Mcloud's father actually died of cheese addiction" said Peppy.
      "Yeah, I'm sure some guy named Ben Cheese had something to do with it" said Miyu.
      "Please don't hurt us!" said Miyu.
      "Sorry lady, this is just our duty" replied Wolf.
      "Yes, Andross knows what he's doing" said Falco.
      "You see what's happening here? The bird finally started using his brains. You two can make up for your shortcomings if you so desire, I'm
      perfectly willing to get you two on my side as well, though I doubt you'll take me up on the offer" said Wolf.
      "I'd rather be put in a zoo!" said Miyu.
      "I'd rather be forced to deliver candy door to door in a bunny outfit" said Peppy. Falco groaned. Wolf continued speaking.
      "Cornerians are going to soon be upgraded, and those who refuse will be immediately terminated" said Wolf.
      "Upgraded? You mean experimented on and treated like an animal, right? Not gonna happen Wolf" said Peppy. Wolf pulled
      out a remote and activated a trap door with a growing wormhole underneath. He used the remote to lower the pillar Miyu and Peppy were tied to further and further down, hoping they would fall victim to the wormhole wherein Andross would kill them. He began mocking them.
      "Hey, no sweat dear fellows. Trust your instincts, don't ever give up, hahaha" chuckled Wolf. Wolf then got in Peppy's Arwing with Falco and was just
      about to take off, when Miyu began chewing on the ropes with her sharp teeth. She cut Peppy free the same way, and grabbed
      on to him just as he was about to fall into the hole. They began blasting inside the Arwing, causing the entire machine
      to start flashing. Wolf and Falco evacuated the ship and it burst into flames.
      "Congratulations, you destroyed your own ship!" said Wolf.
      "Not so" said Peppy, texting Pepper on his phone. A vortex opened and a fresh new Arwing appeared.
      "What the heck?" asked Wolf.
      "It pays to eat out of Pepper's paws, Wolf. But it doesn't pay to eat out of the hands of Emperor Andross, who's
      about to get his just desserts by the way" said Peppy, getting into his Arwing.
      "Take me with you" said Miyu, gazing into Peppy's face with starstruck eyes.
      "No, I'd feel too bad if something happened to you" replied Peppy.
      "Please, Vivian Hare's dead, and I...love you" said Miyu.
      "Oh, alright, if it means that much to you, I'd rather die with you than anyone else" said Peppy. Peppy
      and Miyu got into the Arwing, and flew into the wormhole to meet up with Andross. Wolf and Falco
      got into a seperate ship and followed in pursuit.
      The Final Battle Begins:
      Sure enough, there was Andross, complete with his diabolical mechanically constructed new face and metal hands.
      "The lynx and the rabbit, I'm not used to this. Very well, I'll destroy you both just the same" said Andross, as he
      began attempting to send enourmas blocks of energy towards Peppy's Arwing. Peppy fired many shots into Andross's hands
      destroying both of them. Finally Andross attempted to suck the arwing into his mouth.
      "Peppy, what do you do in this situation? Remember? You DO A BARREL ROLL!" said Miyu.
      "Understood, my precious lynx!" said Peppy, who made the Arwing do many consecutive barrel rolls succesfully avoiding
      Andross's sinister clutches. Finally Peppy began blasting the flashing red eyes of Andross, and Andross's face-ship split
      into pieces, leaving only a box with a giant brain inside of it. Peppy fired a nova bomb at it and it exploded. Miyu kissed Peppy's cheek and Peppy
      felt very relieved to be back in the game, and also incredibly amazed and amused, as he had defeated Andross for the first
      time with no help from Fox whatsoever.
      "Fox probly still thinks Andross is on Venom" said Miyu jokingly.
      "Yeah" said Peppy. "We rock!"
      "What about Wolf and Falco though?" asked Miyu.
      "Just got a text from Pepper. They've been taken into custody. Falco was exposed to a brainwashing helmet.
      The effects will wear off soon enough" said Peppy.
      Later...
      We join Falco and Katt in their apartment.
      "I can't believe I fell for Andross's garbage" said Falco.
      "It's okay, chickie poo. Your feathers have been ruffled enough. Come lather my fur why don't you?" said Katt.
      "Gee thanks, I think I'll pass for now" said Falco.
      "So, are you gonna take me on that vacation to Fortuna in that delicate ship of yours?" asked Katt.
      "Yes, but don't call it delicate that diminishes its value. Let's go, Katt!" said Falco.
      The Conclusion:
      "Wow, Peppy, I'll never consider you an old timer again" said Fox.
      "Congratulations to you and Miyu!" said Slippy.
      "Next week we're getting married" said Peppy.
      "I think I'm gonna cry" said Slippy.
      "I'm gonna cut the cake now. Know what it says on it?" asked Fox.
      "What?" asked Peppy.
      PEPPY WANTS YOU
      TO DO A BARREL ROLL
