Brother, Where Are You? Part 4- Reunion
                                         Reunion
"You ought to be proud of yourself, my boy. You've captured all of these ghosts in just a single night! I am glad you caught Uncle Grimmly before you turned the lights back on, I must say. You've only got Vincent Van Gore to collect now, and of course, that room's Boo, and then you'll just have to deal with King Boo. Come now, sonny, you look like you've been caught in a thunderstorm without an umbrella."
"I'm… just worried about Mario, Gadd," Luigi sighed, staring down at the Game Boy Horror that had served him so well. "And I know that King Boo's a really powerful ghost. I can't stop thinking about what will happen if I fail to defeat him…"
"Nonsense, my boy!" E. Gadd chuckled, even though he had been having similar thoughts. "I know you'll trounce that nefarious King Boo since your brother's counting on you to do

Brother, Where Are You? Part 3- Being A Brother
                                    Being A Brother
What a night it had been, Luigi thought, as he made his way through the old haunted Mansion once again, clutching the nozzle of his Poltergust 3000 as if it was his only lifeline, which, all due things considered, it was. He was relieved when some of the Common Ghosts had started avoiding him since this could only make things easier for the green-capped plumber. Of course, there were still many ghosts roaming about the corridors that loved nothing more than to try and play some pranks on the human that had so foolishly wandered into their midst. Luigi was currently sporting a bloodied nose as the result of opening a fake door that had immediately slammed him against the wall, all for the amusement of the ghosts of course.
As Luigi climbed the stairs that would eventually lead him to the balcony, he thought about the ghosts he had met and c

30: The Beautiful Game
                             30: The Beautiful Game
"Ready for the match, guys?" Luigi asked as he finished putting on his protective gear. He saw that everybody else had also put on their gear; it was definitely needed considering how violent the football matches could be in comparison to the earlier tournaments. It was almost safer in Super Smash Bros Brawl but hey, Luigi was fine with all of this because not only had he faced down Eldritch Abominations in bloody battles but he was now getting some well-overdue fan attention seeing that even during the brutal game, he was still quite the gentleman and he was respected for that as he was by his team-mates.
"You bet!" Crocky, Luigi's Kritter goalie chuckled. "We just gotta see that dastardly Waluigi get beaten down to a pulp!"
"Too right!" Geo eagerly agreed; one half of Neo and Geo, the Shy Guy Duo. "I can't believe how dirty those scumbags play! Anybody

Broken Scalchop, Broken Heart
                       Broken Scalchop, Broken Heart
This was it! This was the last straw! From now on, he would never think about having a relationship again! He wouldn't think about finding love again! Too many times had his heart been broken. It had a tendency to heal fast the next day though since it was usually in his nature to remain the happy-go-lucky Pokémon. But now that a member of his own damn species had rejected him, scorned him even, in front of just about everybody! and leapt into the arms of his defeated rival, what point was there to love? Not only had his heart been broken far more severely this time, but even his scalchop had shattered into two, something had never happened to him before, not even in the most brutal of battles. As far as the MC and, it seemed, practically everybody else was concerned, a broken scalchop just meant disqualification. That Cadbury and his Dewott Caesar certa

29: Stop! Waluigi Time!
                                29: Stop! Waluigi Time!
"Wahahaha! That trophy's gonna have the name of Waluigi on it today!"
Waluigi snickered to himself as he polished the body of his beloved Flame Runner Bike; he loved the fact that the Kart Officials had seen it fit to introduce bikes in this tournament. It was so satisfying constantly performing wheelies on the track even though he had absolutely no need to. It was even more satisfying when one realised that you could use the bike to avoid the annoying POW Block that others dared to activate. Those in karts had no chance. They were fools; Waluigi knew this.
Oh, this latest tournament was going to be so awesome! Why? Because Waluigi had a trick up his sleeve. Well, several up his sleeve actually and nobody, not even that garlic-munching, whining, lard bucket of a treasure hunter, Wario, knew about these fine babies. Yup, Wario could have his cake

"IT'S MADNESS! I've got to snap out of this! You have to free us before we're all completely brainwashed! ...But for now, why don't you gaze at the fish with me? You look tense. Come relax."
"Why, thank you Mario, for getting so many Power Stars! You're amazing. Yep, real amazing. But… why don't you stay with us for a while? You're looking tired…"
"Thank you Mario, but our princess is in another castle! Ha-ha, just kidding. But why not take a break? You don't want to risk your lives now do you…?"
Mario, well-known hero of the Mushroom Kingdom and completely awesome beater-upper of the dreadful Koopa King Bowser, uneasily crept about the castle as if expecting to be attacked at any moment. Who do you think was about to attack him, fighter of a thousand battles, you may well ask? After all, it wasn't as if the Bob-ombs were going to blast their way in and it wasn't as if the Whomps were going to smash thei

                     Chapter 27: Minus World (NES)
"A-stomping we will go, a-stomping we will go, hi-ho the merry-o, a-stomping we will go!"
Whilst Mario was busy singing and simultaneously stomping on Goombas as heroes generally did, Luigi had the awful feeling that princess-saving was going to become a time-consuming habit for them. Indeed, had not Bowser expressed his desire to constantly kidnap the princess just for the hell of it? Or was it so that he could take over the kingdom? Something like that anyway. He also wondered what the heck he would be doing with Peach (or Princess Toadstool for those who had not earned the right to refer to her by her actual name) in the castle inexplicably at the end of the map. He tried and failed not to think about it too much; it wasn't as if they were of the same species after all.
"Er, Mario. Don't you think it would be a good idea to stop bashing those blocks?" he said. "You do rea

"Oh, stars above! Not that! Anything but that!"
"What have we done to deserve this? We're innocent, I tell you! Innocent! For all the nice readers out there, spare us Toad! SPARE US!"
Now, as you may have gathered, something truly horrific was about to happen to Mario and Luigi and unfortunately for them, they had no way of getting out of it. Yes, it was probably on par with Wart's torture of the entire gang when he forced them to watch the old Mario cartoons and the film. But somebody had to deal with the purple monstrosity that had invaded their otherwise happy lives; this was what heroes were for, right? However, the purple monstrosity was on a moral mission and it had quite a few things to point out in their course of heroism. So they weren't really innocent after all and wer

Super Small

"JUST HOW MANY LIVES DOES THIS PLUMBER HAVE?" Bowser roared. "WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO TO KEEP A PRINCESS KIDNAPPED FOR CRYING OUT LOUD?" He had heard the news from one of his minions that once again, his wonderful Decoy Bowser had been defeated and now the plumber was merrily continuing on his way through yet another world. That plumber… it wasn't exactly the typical occupation for a so-called hero but this Mario sure was putting a wrench in the works, and indeed, a spanner.
"I calculate that he has three lives left, your Gnarliness," said Bowser's right-hand and highly trusted minion, Kamek. Usually, Kamek was in the background somewhere while he left his royal Koopa to do the usual business of curb-stomping, plumber-stomping and coming up with ridiculou

"I'm not pleading or begging, Luigi, I am demanding that you go through this painting to defeat the boss and find the key to rescue Wario for crying out loud! I mean, Wario, of all people!"
Yup, the Mushroom Kingdom's finest and most famous pair of heroes, Mario and er… you know, the other famous guy, what is he called…? Oh, yes, Luigi, were busy indulging in that delightful brotherly habit of theirs which involved lots of arguing and shouting and pointing fingers. The basis of this particular argument was that Luigi had to go and rescue Wario and only he could do that since he had the required special ability needed to get to that painting in the Mirror Room.

Mario the Murderer?
                                23. Mario the Murderer?
"When on a mission to rescue the princess, Mario has been known to use any means necessary to defeat his enemy, even wearing the skin of a raccoon dog to give him special powers. Tanooki may be just a 'suit' to you, Mario, but in real life, Tanooki are raccoon dogs who are skinned alive for their fur. By wearing Tanooki, you are sending the message that it's OK to wear fur. Play Super Tanooki Skin 2D and help Tanooki reclaim his fur, people! Now you have been accused of all of this, how do you plead?"
"What the hell?" cried Mario who was currently chained to a chair in the middle of the Court Room. "Are you absolutely insane? Since when do I go skinning animals so I might gain special powers when I can just use a leaf or a mushroom to do the same thing?"

Another Mario Party
                                22. Another Mario Party
It was another Mario Party. It was called Mario Party even though Mario was absolutely adamant on the fact that he did not name it Mario Party but it was of course named after him because of the truckload of fans that he had. Indeed, calling it Mario Party had to be a homage to him because Mario was the hero of the Mushroom Kingdom who saved princesses day in day out and generally pulverised the living daylights out of a nefarious Koopa King for a living.
But… surely a party, or a Mario Party if you will, was meant to be fun, relaxing, enjoyable and above all, safe. How many parties, you may well ask yourselves, involved near-death experiences every other turn? Just how many parties involved being dangled over lava, being squashed by giant, spiky things, being c

Within the heart of London, reclining on the sofa in his comfortable abode, the esteemed tutor of the arts of archaeology, the benevolent and ever-eager pursuer of the gentlemanly arts, the man known as Professor Hershel Layton, was feeling the ungentlemenly feeling of dissatisfaction. True, everybody, no doubt, had such feelings although for one such as he, it caused a certain amount of disconcertion. Layton sighed as he put down his pen, having completed the latest perplexing puzzle in The London Times but alas, for him, it was not nearly perplexing enough. Why, the challenge seemed merely an illusion to a puzzle master such as himself and his ever-percolating mind needed challenging, needed satisfaction from accepting and completing such a challenge that would deliver some amount of perplexity.

Tomb of the Ancient King
Tomb of the Ancient King
A woman digging in her garden discovers something unexpected. Now before I reiterate this tale; what do you suppose the mysterious object was that this woman dug up? I assume that you are thinking treasure as opposed to anything else. After all, it seems to be more frequent than ever that those amateur treasure-hunters wielding cheap metal detectors dig up marvellous treasures that have not seen the day of light since many centuries ago. Take, for example, Anglo-Saxon hoards; look at the treasures that they have unveiled: golden hilt sword collars, fabulous silver brooches, marvellous sword pyramids and many other bejewelled items that are of such delight to us from ancient times gone by.
Yes, I assumed that this would gain your interest. However, this woman, much advanced in her years, is not interested in such baubles. She keeps a modest garden at her modest home and if you ask her about such a hoard and the possibility of reaping its rewards, she would say t

Light Zero
LIGHT ZERO
Picture if you will, a shooting star whizzing across the dusky sky, blazing a trail of fiery light behind it and as it does so, allows glittering golden stardust to slowly descend onto the earth below. Its path will eventually mark the destination of another band of warriors waiting to lift-off into the heavens but this is no ordinary band for they have no ordinary commander.
Cast your eyes downwards then and you shall see, way, way below, a slightly battered mother ship resting upon the top of a lowly hill, waiting to be refuelled by its crew. They zip back and forth gathering supplies together and passing the goods along to be stored in the ship’s hull. Written on its prow is the name the Light Zero for rumour has it that it can travel at the speed of light; hence there is no time gap between the two. Although this is a falsification, it is beneficial to keep these rumours afloat. All in all, they seem rather animated and g

Anyone for Tennis?
21. Anyone for Tennis?
"Wahoo! Anyone for tennis?" cried Mario excitedly, brandishing his racquet like a weapon.
"Oh for god's sake! Not again!" Luigi said to his over-excitable brother. "We have been playing tennis for years now and you just use it as an excuse to try and whip my backside! Nu-uh! I'm not doing it! No way. I'm sick of beating you anyway; it's got boring, bro."
"Did somebody mention tennis? That would be wonderful!" Peach sighed happily. "It's such a graceful game, a beautiful game…"
"Yeah, until some sore loser tries to shove his racquet up the victor's nose!" snapped Luigi, glaring at Mario who was conveniently feigning deafness.
Closely following Peach was another princess, one who had travelled quite a distance to visit her childhood friend and fellow ruler. She was named Daisy, princess of Sarasaland. "Ooh! We don't often play tennis where we live! I think it is a terrific idea and Luigi could teach me the ropes."

Epicness here! :iconsuperepicwinplz:
Hey, peeps.

You've probably forgotten about me and I can't blame you - it's not as if I really upload on here. My account is basically a favourite storage for all those really talented artists I admire whereas I can't draw for toffee.

So anyway, I've been thinking. I've recently finished my Publishing Masters and I've managed to start writing some fan-fiction again. I'm trying to get a job as either an editorial or production assistant. I've sent off lots of applications so far but no success as of yet. I'm more proficient in InDesign (the main program used to produce books) and while I'm not quite sure of how I can still practice InDesign - because I preferentially need an end goal as it will provide structure for my practising - I can practice my lesser Photoshop skills by taking photos (no fancy camera, just a smartphone), doing stuff to them and uploading on this website. (At least until my current Adobe contract finishes in February. Not sure I fancy paying more than I am each month because I won't be able to get a student deal again.) But anyway, for that, I wish to do this on a new account.

So yeah, it will be named 1Thunderfire as that's the name I use on fanfiction.net and YouTube, the name I identity with and others identify me with - it's a name I'm really attached to. It will be a new beginning but it means I won't really be using this account any more. :p (Sorry in particular to Purpletshirt; I know you just found me on here!)

So if you would like to still read my fan-fiction, you can find me on fanfiction.net as 1Thunderfire where I've been for a few years - it's the natural home for my fan-fiction stories anyway and it admittedly makes more sense. You can review my stories on there; I'm very happy to have guest reviews so feel free to comment.

I will probably delete this account but I want to try and shift as many favourites over as possible and that's going to be a very long process so this will be up for a while yet.

Thanks for reading, faving and commenting on my works thus far; you're all lovely people, but new times call and I want to be able to reach my ambition in life. Please take a look at my stories on fanfiction.net; it's better-presented anyway! :)

To the future!

I'm not surprised. :) I haven't gone on here properly on ages, especially as I've been so busy with my postgraduate work. Since I'm a writer, I publish my work on fanfiction. net as 1Thunderfire as it's the better medium for it (when I have the time of course). I'm no artist; this is mainly just to hold my favourites and I haven't even done that for a long time. :p
