He almost didn't believe what he had just heard. He creaked his head around to the unassuming officer at the entrance to the saloon.
"You're sure?" he asked from his perch at the bench beside the barkeep.
"Sure as can be, Sheriff," the officer rattled, his voice cracking with fear. "It's...it's him."
The Deputy at his side straightened the ten gallon hat on his metal head and doubled back.
"I'll be a Met's uncle," he groaned. "That devil's here? In our town?"
The Sheriff sighed and rose from his stool as one rises in a church. He grabbed his bright yellow hat and reflected for a moment, running his rusty red finger across the V-shaped b

Summary: My attempt at a Megaman X prequel fanfiction, beginning with how Dr. Cain discovered X, roughly based off the description in the game manual. Had I continued it, itd have ended where the game began, but yeah. I think one-shots are the only fics Ive ever actually finished. Got tired of sitting on this, so Im posting it anyway.
WARNING: This fic has WORDS. This is a writing from before I decided to try and simplify my writing style. So yeah. Words. Dialogue. This chapter has nothing that might be called action, I had planned on putting that in later chapters, but I kinda stalled and havent actually touched this fic in um well a long time. I might try to finish someday, I have events planned, I just have trouble stringing them together in a coherent, interesting way.

Zero Nightmare That bastard copy, pretending to be the real Zero. It keeps trying to convince me it's the real Zero, and each time I attack, it just dodges out of the way The thing has been following me around, almost protectively, since we defeated Sigma, and something about it just won't stop bothering me That thing took Zero's place in the space shuttle, and destroyed Eurasia. When it returned, though, I tried to fight it, but I wound up unconscious. It told me that when Sigma tried to kill me, it had jumped in the way and fought back, scaring him off.
The first time I met it, it was at Commander Yammark's base. I remember it clearly.
"Who are you? I won't let anybody stop me." I yelled as a strange figure came into view, standing in a relaxed position.
"It's me, X. Don't you recognize me?" the being replied, feigning shock exactly as Zero often did.

The entrance to the Sanctuary Depths is just past the Fortress Temple courtyard, to the right.
Samus had remembered that area, the Luminoths final defensive position before the Fortress generator. The door on the right wall had been blocked, and when she mentioned it to U-Mos, he had assured her that his people had already cleared away the debris, and that there would be an elevator on the other side which could take her down into the storage area. Descending the lift into the courtyard itself, she recalled the battle that had taken place in this rooms Dark Aether mirror. Taking the designs for their Quad sentry robots to the next level, the Luminoth had begun designing a massive war machine that could help them defend the Fortress. The giant four-legged walker was dubbed Quadraxis, but the Fortress fell to the Ing before Quadraxis could be completed. Not one to ignore such an opportunity, the Ing took Quadraxis back to Dark Aether,

Double D and Rolf were sprinting down a hallway in the opera house, trying to escape the Crimson Renegade members they could hear from far behind.
"Fedora-hat fellow! We need a location of which to hide!" Rolf said, breathing heavily as he ran. "I couldn't agree more Rolf, was it?" Double D stated. Rolf nodded and Double D began to say, "My name is Eddward, but I'm also called Double D-EEE!" before slipping and falling flat on his rear.
"What the devil ?" he mumbled as he stood up and picked up the piece of wood he had slipped on. All of a sudden Jonny ran into Double D, knocking both of them down and knocking Plank out of Double D's hands, sending him flying down a stair well.
"NOOO! Why'd you let him go?! Plank, come back 'ol buddy!" Jonny cried as he chased Plank down the stairs, followed by May. "Jonny JONNY, WAIT!" she cried as she went down the stair well.

Metroid Other M: A RetrospectiveOr, how Other M does not fit into the Metroid canon.Metroid Other M: A Retrospective2 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
It’s been almost four years since the release of the last Metroid game, and sadly this latest hiatus was kicked off, at least for me, on a very disappointing note.
I can’t even begin to explain how much of a disappointment this game was for me, but I’d probably attribute that to the ecstatic hype I allowed myself to fall into in the months before its release.
While the gameplay was pretty decent on its own, the linear style was a huge step down from the exploration aspect Metroid fans have come to cherish. I miss the days of Metroid gaming where I had the ever-present question in my mind; “Where the fuck do I go?”
Despite its linear take, Other M is a decently fun game to play, combining aspects of both the 2-D shooting style of the original games with hack-n-slash elements like dodging and “finishing moves”.
But while the gameplay in itself wasn’t terribly disappointing, (aside from th

An invisible wave burst from the area as a large ship came out of hyperspace travel. The ship was a deep shade of orange and helmet-like in appearance, helped so by a bright-green viewport that made it look like a visor.
Inside the ship, the pilot steered it towards the bluish planet known in this system as "Corneria". After a long day of laying waste to the deadly Metroids, they were hoping to re-supply and lay low before going onto the next mission.
The pilot in question was tall and humanoid in appearance, clad in armor of red, orange, and yellow colors and that covered the wearer head-to-toe and made discerning things like facial features and even gender difficult. If one looked close enough at the green visor, they would have seen a pair of easily-effeminate eyes peering from b

We cannot wait for salvation.
We cannot hope for an other-worldly power to deliver us.
We cannot do anything but hope.
For when we have hope, we embrace it. Embrace it until our hope becomes action,.
And we become the hope we sought for.
We are the glory of our generation. The ones chosen to be the Standard Bearers in our darkest hours. The ones who shine brighter than the Sun would allow. The ones who take Virtue above power, Honor above pride, and Charity over greed.
For when armies combine and seek malice, when nations plot and deceive, when truth is tainted and disowned, when axes are sharpened, words destroy, honor is stolen, and children weep in the streets because all is lost...
We are the hope they seek.

Solitude ch 3It was a bit of a rocky start, but how often had first encounters been smooth throughout human history? Derrik was still a bit shaken by the whole ordeal, not sure what to take from it. She seemed very 'human', though the term, scientifically, was a bit bias. To him, it implied that what he witnessed from this intelligent creature was something that was not expected from anything but a human, and it did not sit well with him.Solitude ch 37 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
Her... race? Species? Her PEOPLE were easily as far along the evolutionary process as Homo Sapians, and they probably had their own word for 'humanity', a fact that rattled Derrik a bit, though he knew it shouldn't. He was a scientist, a person who did not hold biases, but lack of a suitable example left him with nothing more than the sense to get over such things. One thing was for certain, nothing he could say would offend her, because they had no way to properly communicate.

She was sure their fun earlier had put them on the right track to being good friends.Solitude ch. 47 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
Siyyu was enthralled about her small friend, but tried her hardest to keep from turning him around in her hand. The euphoria she had experienced was most likely caused by the 'chah-klet' she had eaten, something she was little ashamed of, since she forced D'rik into a position he did not feel safe in. However, she was ultimately glad about the ordeal, since D'rik seemed to trust her much more now.
It was probably best to assume that smaller steps were necessary if she wanted to keep D'rik comfortable, but her curious nature was hard to suppress. When the movie seemed to be going into greater exposition, which she couldn't appreciate since she didn't know anything about the human language,
