Everyday...ever since I saw that boy where my brother worked...
Everyday... I snuck out of the hospital, avoiding the nurses and avoiding my father.
Everyday... I snuck out...to see his face...
To read his thoughts...
To see our paper planes...
~ Chapter 1 - Sunshine ~
"Mother in heaven... I am so sorry for once again disobeying dad... but...mom... if this is it for me... if I can't get out of this hospital alive, then please... please... forgive me and let me see him... one last time..."
I silently pleaded to my mother as I furiously ran past the nurse's head desk, avoiding curious gazes. Tears streamed heavily down my face. Every step and every stride brought pain shooting through my veins... but I don't care. I need to see him...
If this was the last moment of my life...
...My only wish before I go, is to see him.
I bursted through the hospital doors, my pace significantly weakening. My heart was painfully banging against my chest,

"I already told you, Samus. We've been asked to interview possible new fighters for the next installment of Super Smash Bros.," stated a young blond man dressed in green.
"But why do we have to do this, Link? Couldn't they have gotten someone else?"
"Well since we're part of Nintendo's Generation One, the head honchos thought it'd be best if we handled the interviews. Besides, who would you choose? Captain Falcon? He'd scare away all the applicants!"
Samus rolled her eyes at the swordsman and decided to just get this over with. Pulling out the first application, the intergalactic bounty hunter called the first applicant. In walked in a small cat-like creature that was cream in color, black ears, six whiskers; two on each side if its face and two on top of its head, and a gold c

"You know what, Link! I am not interviewing these two! They're so annoying!"
"But Samus, the series needs more villains. At least that's what headquarters said, so we have to interview them."
Samus let out a few grumbles and growls as she called in the next applicants, against her wishes. The door slammed open and with a cackle, an old woman with green skin entered. She had large purple hair that looked like horns and wore purple robes.
Following her was a short man, also with green skin, and wore a red cloak over his body and had think glasses that hid his eyes. He also had a manic grin on his face.
"I have fury! With that fury, I shall spread the mustard of doom and show you the true power of chortles!" exclaimed the short man.
Link and Samus sweatdropped at that.
"Ignore him. I am Cackletta and I hear that you are looking for villains for the next SSB game. Then look n

"What is it, Red?" asked Link as the young Pokémon Trainer came in.
"Well my protégé wants to know if he can be in the next SSB game. Any chance you could interview him?"
Samus let out a sigh. "I guess. Just tell him to keep it short."
Red left the room and then returned with a younger boy. The younger boy had black hair and wore, a red long-sleeved shirt, black shorts, and a yellow and black cap that he wore backwards.
"Yo! The name's Ethan and I want to be in the next SSB game!" exclaimed the boy.
"Uh huh. What do you have to even get as far as you think you will?" questioned Samus.
"Master Red has Squirtle, Ivysaur, and Charizard to help him. I have a similar team to help me," said Ethan as he sent out his Pokémon.
The first was a small green Pokémon that looked like a small d
New Smash Bros Interviews: MidnaA soft knock on the door broke the silence.New Smash Bros Interviews: Midna3 years ago in Humor More Like This
"Come in!" called out Link. When the door opened, he smiled when he saw Zelda walk into the room. "Hey, Zelda!"
Zelda smiled back at her hero. "Hello, Link. I figured since you'd be stuck here all day that you probably haven't had lunch yet, so I brought you something to eat!"
Link's eyes lit up when he saw the basket Zelda held up. "Thanks, Zelda! You're the best!"
Samus rolled her eyes at the two lovebirds. "Get a room, you two."
Link glared at the woman next to him, while Zelda's cheeks became red in embarrassment. That was when there was another knock at the door. Without waiting to be called in though, the door opened and in walked a tall woman with bright orange hair. The two Hylians were surprised to see the woman.
"Midna?! What are you doing here?!" questioned Link, very confused.
"Shouldn't you be back in the Twilight Realm acting as the queen?" asked Zelda,

Link and Samus looked up in confusion. That sounded like Toon Link. They then heard another voice.
"Stop being a baby, Link! I want in this little Smash thingy that you're in and you're going to help me!"
That was when the door slammed open and Toon Link was thrown inside. Link and Samus looked to see who threw the alternate hero in, only to find a young tan-skinned girl who looked to be the same age as Toon Link. She had blonde hair tied in a bun atop of her head and her clothing made her look like a pirate.
"Ow " whined Toon Link as he rubbed the bump on his head.
"I didn't throw you that hard," deadpanned the pirate girl. She then noticed Link and Samus. "Hey, Link? Why's this guy dressed like you?"
Toon Link stood up from the ground and turned to his companion. "Tetra, this is Link. I told you about him, remember?"

Link and Samus sweatdropped at the loud voice coming from the lobby. The door slammed open and scuttling in were to small figures. One was a yellow star and the other was an orange clam.
"Nyai!" exclaimed the little star, waving his stubby arm in hello at Link and Samus.
"Yo! The name's Moe and I'm here to be Starfy's translator!" exclaimed the clam.
"So we have another Assist Trophy wanting to become a fighter," said Samus with a sigh.
"Hey! Starfy here was supposed to be a fighter in Brawl! But instead got demoted to bein' an Assist Trophy! Ain't that right, Starfy?"
Moe turned to his friend only to find the little star was asleep. Moe could feel his eye twitch.
"Looks like he could care less," said Samus with a smirk.
"Wake up, Starfy!" bellowed Moe.
"Wah!" cried Starfy at being woken up abruptly.
"Here I am tryin' to get ya a bigger role that

"Looks like we've got more third-party characters coming in."
"Really? Who?" questioned Link.
Samus grinned as she called in the next applicant. The door opened and in walked two people, both of which surprisingly had spiky hair and bright blue eyes. The taller one was wearing mostly black and his spiky hair was blond. Strapped to his back was a very large sword wrapped in bandages.
The younger one was wearing an outfit that was mostly black with bits of red and yellow and had brown hair. Another thing that set the boy apart from the man was whereas the man looked serious and void of emotion, the boy looked cheerful.
"Hey guys!" greeted the boy.
"Cloud? Sora? You two are here to join SSB?" asked Link.
"Yup! Although Cloud here really doesn't want to, but Tifa's making him," explained Sora. "I'm here as sort of a backup."
"I don't see why I

"So you want to get promoted from being an Assist Trophy to a Smash Fighter, Saki?" asked Link.
"Yes, sir. I am not afraid of taking on such a responsibility and I know I can handle anything that comes my way," replied Saki.
"You do realized that it might not happen since you are an Assist Trophy, right?" questioned Samus.
"I thought of that, but I see it like this; Charizard was a Poké Ball Pokémon for the first two games and became a fighter in Brawl, so there is a chance that I or some of the other Assist Trophies can become fighters in the next game."
"That makes sense," said Link, agreeing with that logic.
"Out of curiosity, what do your friends think of this decision?" questioned Samus.
"Let me rephrase, what does Airan think of your decision?" asked Samus, this time
Advice for earthbound oc's/Altered charactersI'm starting to get sick of seeing terrible EarthBound "original characters"/mary-sue's/gary-stu's on a daily basis. I snapped yesterday when I saw an EarthBound original character that claimed to have fucking neck snapping powers (no joke), which really annoyed me to death.Advice for earthbound oc's/Altered characters3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
So this is gonna be a few simple steps of advice to make a good EarthBound original character.
1) Past and backstory
You don't need a dramatic past or dark backstory to make your character interesting. Say, if your character saw their parents die in front of him/her, it's only okay if the character gets over it and doesn't act like a complete emo Final Fantasy character.
It's fine if you make your character witness a death, but don't make them turn into an emo for the rest of their life over it. They can remorse over it of course, but when they constantly are depressed over it, that's just a poor attempt to copy Lucas's back story.
2) PSI powers
I can't emphasize this enough. It's all well and good to have PSI powe
