Cornerian Mercenaries

Recommended Posts

Shmibli7

They weren't the first pick, they weren't the second pick either, in fact as Jasper Hiiahishi, leader of the mercenary group known as The Rejects sat looking out of the window of the drop craft carrying them, he wondered how many other bounty hunter teams the Cornerian Secret Service contacted before them. In the end, his team were the only people brave enough or stupid enough to undergo the assignment they were on their way to.

Recently, there had been a resurgence in support for the now deceased (or at least that's what the file said) Andross. A political party that wanted an absolute dictatorship had come into being, led by a man named Troy Nichols, a general under Andross from the second Lylat War. Noticing they had made a huge mistake in letting the party exist, the Cornerian government needed to get their hands dirty and eliminate Nichols, but they couldn't use the military, bad image, you see, so they needed mercs, and ended up with Jasper and his band of rag-tag guns for hire. Getting to Nichols would be no cake walk, Nichols had a lot of power and had set up a puppet government, complete with a functioning military. This would be a dangerous job, but he was determined to finish it. He pats the patch on the arm of his jacket, an image of a wolf grim reaper. A memento from his time in the Fortunan Resistance. He felt it was lucky.

He turns to his team and pulls a photo of Nichols, a gruff Rhino, out of his pocket . "This is our man." He says, "Don't bother trying to incapacitate him, they want him dead."

"We are over the drop zone. Get ready." The pilot says, "Get yourselves ready.

Jasper pulls his rifle off of the wall behind him, an old Fortunan battle rifle and puts his automag laser in the holster on his hip. He throws an oxygen mask on and grabs a parachute and moves over to the opening door of the craft.

"See you on the ground." He says, then jumps.

Elizabeth, Sandor, and Korben stood and slowly rocked as the craft encountered the occasional bout of turbulence. Elizabeth, with her rifle slung over her shoulder, stared coldly at the craft doors, patiently waiting for them to open. Sandor, his blood pumping and adrenaline running, breathed shallow breaths as he anticipated the signal to go. He was jittery, and his hands were balled up into fists. He ground his teeth in his mouth, hungering for combat. Korben examined his automatic blaster rifle, making sure that all of the nuts and bolts were in their rightful places and that the weapon would not jam. He also checked the ammunition count on both his primary weapon and his sidearm. Satisfied, he put down his blaster rifle. Slightly bored, he also examined his tail, a habit of his. After this, he looked to his right and found Sandor itching for the coming fight. He then looked to Elizabeth on Sandor's right. Elizabeth, sensing Korben's stare, looked back. Korben would almost never initiate a conversation, so Elizabeth took the initiative. "Ready, Korby?" she asked. Korben nodded 'yes'. Elizabeth looked down to Sandor. "Looks like our little man is ready, too," she announced, rubbing the top of Sandor's head. Sandor groaned in annoyance, and slapped away Elizabeth's arm. She chuckled. "Alright, Alex, calm down."

"20 seconds," Korben said.

"Got it," replied Elizabeth.

"Mm-hmm," Sandor uttered. Then, Jasper Hiiahishi, their boss for this job, who was standing in front of them, pulled out a picture of their target: Troy Nichols, a rhinoceros.

"This is our man," Jasper said. "Don't bother trying to incapacitate him, they want him dead." Elizabeth and Korben nodded in agreement. Sandor grinned.

"I want his horn," he said.

"10 seconds," Korben said. Then the pilot announced that the craft was nearing the drop zone. Jasper, in preparation for the jump, grabbed his rifle from the wall, as well as a parachute and oxygen mask. The craft's door opened, revealing the ground far below and a dark blue sky above. Jasper approached the doors, and looked back.

"See you on the ground," he yelled, for the wind was almost deafening. Jasper then leapt from the craft and rocketed down to the planet's surface. Sandor then suddenly bolted to the open doors, perfectly executed a somersault, and left the craft. Elizabeth and Korben looked at each other, then nodded. They ran to the doors, matching each other step for step, and jumped.

Jasper fell, a phenomenon he wasn't keen of. So, needless to say, he deployed his parachute the second he needed to and not a second late. He slowly approached the ground below him. He could see the target location coming into view. It was a large facility with a thick wall around it. Inside there were three official looking buildings and five barracks. He chambers a round in his rifle and, when he was close to the ground, clips off his parachute and falls the remaining distance.

Discarding his oxygen mask, he takes cover behind one of the buildings and waits for the remainder of his team to hit the ground.

"Hiiahishi has landed." He says, pressing the communicator that curved over his ear.

Elizabeth, Sandor, and Korben fell from the heavens and proceeded to Corneria below them. The twinkling lights of the military base were beginning to ebb away in the face of the morning sun. The trio, keeping as straight as possible, shot down towards the ground. The noise was deafening, and it was impossible for any of them to verbally communicate with each other in any way. Sandor pulled out a device that vaguely looked like a pistol from his pack. He aimed it at a lonely alley behind a building, where Jasper was waiting. He fired the device, which rocketed a small generator that created a rather miniscule zone of negative energy: about the size of a kiddie pool. Sandor had to land just right for him to hit the zone, and thankfully, he did. His body went from over 120 miles an hour to zero in an instant. He, however, was perfectly safe. Looking to Jasper as he floated in midair, he smiled. Suddenly, the generator turned off, and Sandor fell face-first onto the cold, hard, concrete pavement. Sandor got up, straightened his clothing, and dusted himself off. "That worked well," he commented. Elizabeth and Korben, however, took their time. The duo, after reaching a certain altitude, deployed their parachutes. They both felt the jerk of the canopy slowing their fall exponentially, and peacefully glided to the surface. The two of them landed in the same alley way where Jasper and Sandor were hiding. They discarded their chutes, and threw them into a nearby dumpster.

"Had a nice fall, Sandor?" Elizabeth asked, approaching him and Jasper.

"Sure did, Erzsebet," Sandor replied. Korben took out a scanner to check on Sandor's and Jasper's well-being. After they were cleared, he put it away. Sandor grasped an Ogniemite religious pendant that he wore around his neck at all times, and prayed momentarily, giving thanks to his God for keeping him alive so far, and then prayed for the protection of the rest of his teammates.

"So," said Elizabeth, unslinging her rifle and cocking it. "What now, Jas?"

"Nichols is in the center building." Jasper said. "Or at least I hope so. Cornerian military intelligence is sometimes lacking." He says, chuckling. "Anyway, we aren't going to rush the building, too many potential hostiles."

"You." He said, pointing to Elizabeth are going with Korben around the back of the building. Sandor and I will go in through the side entrance. Any hostiles you encounter are to be dealt with at your discression, but stay quiet. We can't afford to blow this."

He gets up and starts to walk quietly around the building, his rifle raised, Sandor following behind him. Once around to the edge of the building, Jasper sees a soldier on guard. He waits until he comes around to them, then puts him in a chokehold, covering his mouth as well.

"Right, Boss-man," Elizabeth said as she and Korben dashed in the other direction. Sandor, meanwhile, followed Jasper. When Elizabeth and Korben turned the corner of the building they were sneaking along, they found two dog guards: one male, one female. The male had a blaster rifle, the female was equipped with a sniper rifle. They were both conversing casually with one another. Elizabeth looked to Korben, who was eyeing the two guards. He looked to his comrade, and Elizabeth gestured that the guards needed to be taken down. The two of them silently crept up to the two utterly oblivious guards.

"How was your night?" the male guard asked.

"Pretty quiet," replied the female guard. "Nothing to report."

"Y'know, our honeymoon's gonna be pretty expensive," said the male guard. "You sure you still wanna go to Zoness?"

"Of course, honey," replied the female guard. "The fighting there's died down, and we can finally go. Besides, compared with prices a few years ago, it's a steal."

"You got that right," said the male guard. He then took the female guard's hand and caressed it. "When we're out of the game, maybe we can finally have a kid or two, a house, a yard, a mini-van." The female guard chuckled.

"Maybe," assured the female guard. Elizabeth then signaled to take them out. The two of them quickly approached the guards from behind the shadows, and Korben grabbed the male guard's neck in a chokehold, crushing the guard's neck: a quick and painless death. Elizabeth, however, attempted to prove correct a movie cliche: she snapped the female guard's neck, and caught her body to keep it from crashing to the ground. However, the female guard was still alive, although her respiratory functions were disabled, and she was in severe pain.

"Crap," Elizabeth whispered. "I thought for sure that'd work." She laid the female guard gently down, who was struggling to breathe. Korben, shaking his and sighing, laid down the male guard's body gently as well, and knelt down to the female guard. Her eyes darted between Elizabeth and Korben. "Sorry, honey." Elizabeth said to the female guard. Korben then grasped the female guard's neck, and began to squeeze it until he crushed it, which killed her. After the deed was done, Elizabeth regained her composure, and said, "Get their uniforms. We're gonna blend in." Korben nodded, and dragged the corpses back into the alley. After a few minutes, Elizabeth and Korben stepped back out, wearing the guards' uniforms and wielding their weapons. Elizabeth examined the female guard's sniper rifle, and was clearly dissatisfied. "What kind of pathetic piece of shit is this?" she complained.

"It's tight," said Korben with a strained voice, patting on his uniform, which was a size too small for him.

"Deal with it," replied Elizabeth. A guard passed by them, whistling a popular tune on the radio. His blaster rifle shimmered in the rising sunlight. He looked to Elizabeth and Korben, and gave them a slight nod. Elizabeth replied with a similar nod. The guard continued with his patrol. After the guard stepped out of sight, Elizabeth turned to Korben, saying, "Let's go to the central building, if we can freaking find it." Elizabeth looked around, trying to ascertain the position of the building Nichols was said to reside. Korben tapped Elizabeth on the shoulder, and pointed to a large, rectangular building in the center of the compound, in the distance in front of them. A command tower was protruding from it. "Alright, let's go through the back."

Sven had watched them perform the HALO jump (High Altitude Low Opening), almost perfectly in unison. Switching his rifle scope to night vision he scanned the LZ, "Sorry about that boss," he whispered into his head set "that's a different route, not the one they used lasT night." As the words left his mouth another guard rounded the corner behind them, he immediately lined up a headshot and squeezed the trigger. The rifle he was carrying was silenced, and the solid projectile didn't produce any light. "So when do we stop sneaking around with knives?" Sven asked running another scan, "I can't kill all of them like that you know, only 29 rounds out of this before I'm back to my K49 energy rifle."

Jasper heard Sven's voice through the communicator. He rolled his eyes at the notion of letting themselves get into a firefight. He and Sandor kept their route and stayed hidden until they came to the side entrance to Nichol's assumed location. He put the rifle across his shoulder and took out his automag laser, opening the door slowly until his head peaked in. He saw a planning room, four possible hostiles, three of which were armed.

"Sandor..." He whispered. "Time to kill!"

He then flung himself into the room, pulling the trigger of his pistol as he did.

Sandor smiled, and darted into the room after Jasper, who already fired and killed one of the hostiles. He took out his knife from its scabbard, which was attached to his combat belt, and threw it at one of the hostiles. Unfortunately, the knife missed completely and rather comically, embedding itself in the wall behind the target. Frustrated, Sandor unleashed his light automatic blaster, with a specially fitted silencer, which almost completely eliminated the sound produced when the weapon fired energy at a target. He sprayed the gun across the general area where the three remaining targets were standing, mowing them down in a hail of blaster fire. He had completely emptied his magazine, and reloaded. He had a most enraged grimace upon his face. His deep breaths did little to soothe his utter anger. He was standing perfectly still for a few moments. Then, Sandor walked towards his knife in the wall, and wrestled it from its place. In a fit of rage, he repeatedly stabbed the corpse of the hostile he threw the knife at. After 10 thrusts, Sandor stopped. "Let's go," he said to Jasper, in a low voice, shuddering from the hate inside him.

Meanwhile, Elizabeth and Korben entered a side door of the building, which gave them access to a flight of stairs.

"Goddamit," said Korben, looking up at the enormity of the staircase.

"Don't worry, Korby," Elizabeth said. "We'll just ask where Nichols is." Korben nodded in agreement, admiring the simple yet brilliant idea. The duo ascended one floor and entered through a door and into a corridor.

Jasper looked for any other h ostiles . Once he was sure no one was coming, he looked at Sandor and points to a stairwell and they bolt up. From the left, a door was kicked open an three hostiles came out of it. Quickly, he line up three shots and dispatched all three of them. His history with the Corneria City Police Department actually taught him something, go figure.

Once at the next floor, Jasper signals for Sandor to stop and comes to room that simply says "private."

"How much you want to bet somebody who knows where Nichols is will be in there?" He says in child-like anticipation. He signals for a breach and when they had gotten.  into position, he kicks the door open.

Sven watched through his thermal scanner as Jasper booted in the door. Slipping his rifle over his shoulder Sven pulled out his side arm and prepared to follow up, only 400 feet between him and half of the team. Silently running he quickly closed the gap between them. "Hey figured you could use some help," he began as screwed a silencer onto the end of his pistol barrel "you first?"

Elizabeth and Korben stepped into the large and almost empty blue corridor, it's concrete floors resonating the clacking sound of the duo's boots. The corridor lights shone on the blue walls and the white floor, and on the left far end of Elizabeth and Korben, a guard was seen walking away from the two of them. Elizabeth noticed the guard. "Hey!" she yelled, her voice bouncing off the walls and into the ears of the distant guard. The guard heeded her call, and looked back to them. He was munching on an asiago cheese bagel, with a canine bite mark on its side. The guard swallowed the morsel of bagel. "Where's Nichols? We have something to report to him."

"Sorry, sir, they don't tell me stuff that important," said the guard. He then opened a door which led to another part of the building, and exited the corridor. The door closed behind him.

"Sonofabitch," said Elizabeth. "Nothing is easy anymore." Korben looked to the right of them, and gestured his head in that direction. Quite some distance away was a door. "Alright, let's go," she said. The duo walked to the door, stepping in perfect union. "You know, those two were probably not that different from us," Elizabeth said. Korben glanced in her direction, and then looked back at the door.

"Who?" asked Korben.

"Those guards we got these uniforms off of," stated Elizabeth. "The ones we killed: well, you killed..." Korben looked back to Elizabeth.

"How?" Korben questioned.

"You know," began Elizabeth. "How they acted. They were close. Real close.."

"They were engaged," said Korben.

"Yeah, they were." Elizabeth then stopped in her tracks. She adjusted her rifle slung over her shoulder so that it would not fall to the ground, and then dug her fists into the pockets of her uniform jacket. Korben, after stepping a few feet farther, noticed Elizabeth had stopped. He too, stopped, and turned around, looking back at Elizabeth. He approached her, clipping his assault rifle onto the pack of the dead guard on his back. Elizabeth leaned her back on the wall, and looked down on her boots. As Korben neared her, he leaned his shoulder against the wall, and crossed his arms. When Elizabeth felt his cold presence near her, she looked to Korben. "You know, I bet Lucas would've loved to see me move on," she said, referencing her deceased husband. She and Lucas were sweethearts since high school, and Lucas's death deeply impacted Elizabeth, all the way to her core. She smiled at Korben, who was visibly confused.

"What?" asked Korben.

"Nah, nah," replied Elizabeth, looking down at the white floor. "It's a stupid idea, you wouldn't like it."

"Maybe not," he said, closing in on Elizabeth. She was persuaded to look back to Korben, and saw her reflection in his sunglasses. "What is it?"

"I like you, Korben," answered Elizabeth. He smiled, an expression he rarely made.

"Thanks," he replied softly.

"Lemme look at those eyes, Korby, those green and blue eyes." As Elizabeth's hand approached Korben's sunglasses, he backed his head away, reluctant to have them removed. "Ah come on, Korby. There's no one else here." Korben sighed, and acquiesced, allowing Elizabeth to remove his sunglasses. His green left eye and blue right eye shimmered as the bright light of the corridor struck them. "There they are," Elizabeth said. Korben's eyes took on a property of their own: they started to glow. Korben's blinking temporarily covered the green and blue glow, but nevertheless, his eyes still cast their light onto Elizabeth's face. Korben relaxed his disposition, and leaned his head closer to Elizabeth's. Elizabeth went in closer to Korben's head as well. They closed their eyes, and were extraordinarily close to kissing each other. But suddenly, the sound of a door being kicked in crashed into the corridor from behind the door they were walking to. The duo regained their composure, and Korben put his sunglasses back on. They rushed to the door at the end of the corridor, and opened it. They looked to their left, and found Jasper and Sandor darting into the kicked-in door.

"Alright!" Jasper said as he looked at the three highly decorated men in the room he entered. "My friend and I need to find somebody and we welcome your assistance."

He then began walking to the men, taking their sidearms as he passed them.  He threw them to Sandor and continued to speak.

"We need to know where Troy Nichols is."

"Why do you think I would tell you that?" One asked. jasper answered by shooting him in the chest.

"Once again, we need to find Troy Nichols, and if you don't comply, my friend here will start chopping off body parts. So, where is he?"

Sandor laughed maniacally as he leapt onto the table the remaining two officers were standing at. He kicked one in the face, and dropped down to the dead officer, looting his body. "Oh, my God..." said the other officer, mortified by Sandor's behavior.

"You shall meet Him soon!" Sandor threatened, pointing his silenced LAB (light automatic blaster), a Magyar-manufactured Sz. 17. at the officer. He stood up and approached the terrified officer. "Answer this man's questions, or be judged by God." Sandor cocked his Sz. 17, and grinned deviously. His beady eyes darted between the remaining two officers.

 

Meanwhile, Elizabeth and Korben approached the open door, and listened in as Jasper and Sandor threatened the officers into divulging the location of Nichols.

"In the tactics room down the hall!" One of the officers says.

"Thank you." Jasper replies. "Wasn't that easy?"

He motions for Sandor to follow him and moves down the hallway, coming into contact with Elizabeth and Korben.

"Tactics room." he says plainly and keeps walking. Suddenly, an alarm started blaring and enemy soldiers came running down the hallway. Jasper unslings his rifle and holsters his handgun.

"Well, that escalated quickly." He says.

Sandor followed Jasper out of the room, but not before gunning down the remaining officers senselessly. Out in the corridor, Jasper and Sandor stumbled onto Elizabeth and Korben. They were still wearing the captured uniforms from those dead guards outside. "You good, Alex?" Elizabeth asked Sandor. Sandor nodded 'yes'. However, their little reunion was spoiled when the alarm began sounding, and the boots of several guards stomped from the far end of the hallway. Almost impulsively, Sandor hip-fired his Sz. 17 in the direction of the incoming guards, killing scores of them and wounding many more.

"You're all pathetic!" he taunted. Korben covered Sandor as he reloaded, and killed several more guards.

"Looks like our cover's blown," Elizabeth said.

The alarm began blaring as Sven rounded the corner. " For the record, this time it wasn't me."  He said as he ran to catch up with the  rest of the team. "Where are you?" He shouted into his comlink as he fired his handgun. The 20MM nearly tore the poor guard he shot in two, the recoil causing him to stumble. " Right now I'm assuming follow the sounds of gunfire and screaming right?"

Jasper let off a burst from his rifle, taking down quite a few guards as he did so. With no cover in the hallway, it wasn't a gunfight, it was a killing spree. Jasper didn't particularly enjoy it. He knew killing was a necessary and sometimes daily routine with his job, but these people weren't even challenging. He didn't have much of a moral code, but he had just broken the one rule he had: only kill professionals.

He was disgusted that his talent was wasted in this manner.

It wasn't long before the gun fight was over and he saw Kurt running down the hallway. "Nice of you to join us." He said.

"Now if Nichols isn't already evacuated by now, lets head to the tactics room." He commands.

Sandor, after finishing reloading, again aimed his Sz. 17 at the end of the corridor, but to his disappointment, there were no lives to take there. The doorway was crowded with the corpses of multiple guards. "Aww..." he said, his gun and ears lowering from their original peaked positions in sadness. He shook his head. Sandor then dashed to the bodies to loot them all. Korben rolled his eyes. Sandor jumped onto one of the dead bodies, and plucked a wallet from the pant pocket of the body. He opened it, and it revealed a picture of the dead male guard with two other people: another man and a little girl. He tilted his head in curiosity, took out the picture from the wallet, and put it in the hand of the dead guard. Sandor stuffed the wallet in his pocket. Suddenly, Jasper ordered the group to the tactics room. Sandor looked back to Jasper. At that moment, the door reopened, revealing a shotgun-wielding and ready soldier, who completely caught Sandor off-guard. Sandor turned his head to the barrel of the shotgun, and the guard fired, spraying high-energy plasma shot into Sandor's chest. The tykeriel teenager collapsed on his back in agony, screaming in pain. Korben fired on the shotgun soldier, killing him. Korben rushed to Sandor's side, with Sandor's blood pooling under him. His breathing was erratic, and blood was leaking like a sieve from his multiple chest wounds. With every breath he took, he groaned in pain. Korben went to his knees as he slid to Sandor. He took his pack off from his back, and took out from it several medical bandages.

"Liz!" he yelled. Elizabeth proceeded to Korben's side at once. "Hold," ordered Korben, giving the bandages to Elizabeth as she approached him. Korben then took out two medicinal dispensers: one contained painkillers, the other contained a chemical that sterilized the wounds. Korben administers the painkillers to Sandor via the neck, and he was almost instantly relieved of pain. Sandor still wheezed: some of the shot punctured his lungs. Korben then administered the chemical to Sandor. "Bandages," said Korben. Elizabeth gave him the bandages, and started to unwrap the bundle. Elizabeth sat Sandor up, revealing a very bloody back. Sandor's grey v-neck was completely soaked in blood. Korben ripped off Sandor's stained shirt, revealing multiple plasma wounds still pouring out blood. Korben wrapped the bandages around Sandor's body, covering his wounds. "You good?" he asked Sandor once he finished bandaging him up. Sandor, now woozy from his substantial blood loss, nodded his head. Korben put Sandor's arm across his shoulders, and brought him up to his feet. He could barely stand up straight, let alone walk. Korben then elected to carry him: a rather easy feat for the strong beaver. "Med-pod," he stated, referring to his need to treat Sandor's lung puncture. "Now!" At that moment, another guard entered the door - it was the asiago bagel-eating guard, who had a pistol in one hand and his half-eaten bagel in the other. Elizabeth grabbed his gun, and pulled his head towards her knee. The guard's head hit Elizabeth's knee with such force, he fell onto the floor, among his dead comrades. He held his head in pain, his bagel and pistol sitting beside him. Elizabeth pointed her powerful rifle at the guard's head.

"Where's the infirmary?!" she yelled, the guard in absolute terror.

"Through this door!" he stammered, pointing to the door from whence he came. "First left, three doors down! It's marked 'Infirmary'!"

"Thanks," Elizabeth said, knocking the guard unconscious with the butt of her rifle. "Jasper," she said, turning to Jasper behind her. "We need to take a detour."

Jasper yelled in frustration. The whole plan had spiraled hopelessly out of control. "Alright." He said reluctantly to Elizabeth. "Take him, but if Nichols gets away, this job is a bust."

He looks over his shoulder to make sure no one was following them, then presses forward to the infirmary. He closes the door, pulls a chair in front of it and holds his rifle, guarding them. Nichols was getting away, no doubt. But, even with the lacking moral outlook, Jasper felt like Sandor was his responsibility. He didn't want to see him die. Korben better get to work fast. He thought.

"Hurry!"

Jasper, Elizabeth, Korben, and Sandor rushed to the infirmary. Jasper opened the door, closed it, and pulled a heavy chair in front of it. He covered the door with his rifle. Korben told Elizabeth to ready the Med-pod. Selecting a few options on its interface, Elizabeth opened the Med-pod, ready to receive Sandor. Korben gently laid Sandor down. He was drifting in and out of consciousness, and was bleeding from the mouth. Korben closed the Med-pod, and selected the option labeled "Internal Injuries". He then selected "Lung Injuries". The pod then started to glow dark blue, a sign of its healing process. Its low hum had a somewhat soothing effect on all within the room. A few moments later, the pod made a short, high-pitched tone as it opened. "Dinner's ready," Sandor groaned as the Med-pod unveiled him, his lungs completely healed.

"The wonders of modern medicine," commented Elizabeth. Sandor sat up, and stumbled on his two feet. Korben offered Sandor his Sz. 17, to which he graciously accepted with a dastardly smile. 

"We're done," Korben announced.

"Well then, let's go." He says, and swings open the door, running down the hallway. At the end of the hallway, there was a large window. Jasper shot it three times, and then jumps through it. Outside, Nichols' ship was already taking off. Soldiers poured in from all directions. In frustration, he holds the trigger of his rifle and sprays the area. His friends came to his aid, but Nichols was already gone.

He falls on his back and sighs.

No pay and a dishonorable discharge.

Chapter 2

Jasper sat at the counter of "Mask and Stripes." A bar in the heart of Corneria City. He had been there every day since Nichols' escape, drinking himself nearly to death. He looked out at the collection of people in the dimly lit room. Low lifes. As the heavy music played, he put a 500 credit note on the counter and gave it to the bar tender.

"Give me all of the alcohol I can get for this." He says. The bar tender hesitantly takes the money and starts pouring various drinks. As he sits, the T.V shows a news report of Nichols getting away. Jasper, angry and drunk, stands up on the stool he is sitting on and points at the newscast.

"Hey, I was supposed to kill that guy! But I couldn't so I'm sitting here drinking my life away with you losers!"

A sea of voices responded, but nothing could be understood. Getting off balance, he falls off of his stool.

"Uhhg."

      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
