CHAPTER TWENTY-FIVE: GAMBIT
Vegeta watched Blizza slip out the door and join in with the masses, a tiny cloaked figure in a sea of bodies. They did not follow after her immediately; Nappa thought it best to wait a few minutes before departing. The Prince gave a heavy sigh, and sunk into his seat. The crystals were gone and out of his hands, but his best chance had just walked out the door ... and he had let it happen. He felt relief and regret. Had they done the right thing? Nappa thought so, and so did Raditz. Of course, when Frieza showed up he could not punish them for what they did not possess, but Vegeta was sure the tyrant would concoct a reason to do so regardless. To

A note about word choice: I've chosen to use 'Ice-jin' throughout my work as opposed to 'Arcosian' because the second is only a supposition. I also like 'ice-jin' because it reflects back on the 'cold' references that Toriyama uses.
CHAPTER TWENTY-FOUR: DAMAGE CONTROL
Nappa and Vegeta returned to the Residential Dome late during the sleep cycle after spending most of their evening at the fighting pits. Vegeta was in his glory as he watched the matches; he perched on a bench with a giant smile plastered across his face, his hands twitched as he imagined the strikes coming from his own palms. Nappa even allowed the

Chapter 63: Come forth Piccolo, proud son of Namek
A foreboding silence ensued, as Cell stood on the spot, looking himself over in wonder. His physicality had undergone quite a remarkable alteration, particularly his more humanoid facial features and the reinforced layer of black enamel greaves and vambraces. But it was his colossal new power that struck him hardest. He could feel the palpable waves of Ki, exuding off of his new form. He brought a hand in front of his face, clenching and unclenching his fist.
"We must escape now!" Six

Chapter 62: The fallen Prince
"Are we just gonna stare at each other, all day?" Seventeen taunted his golden-haired foe, as they stood opposite one another on the thick, grassy terrain of an island, not very far from Kame House.
"Feel free to attack at any time."
"Don't mind if I do." With that, the Android leapt forward, hurling a fist towards his opponent's face, only for Vegeta to slip and counter with a low punch to the midsection, followed up by left-hook, right-hook combination and as the coup de grace, a side-kick to the chest. Seventeen was propelled towards a mountainside and barely managed to still his momentum, before impacting against the jagged slope.
"Not bad, your Majesty, not bad at all." The youthful Android smirked, dusting off his chest and leisurely making his way back over to Vegeta, without a

A Capsulated Christmas:
"Mommy?" The two-year tottered into her parents' bedroom, dressed in a powder-pink dress that was embossed with white lilies and had short bell-sleeves, over a snow-white pair of polyester PJs. "Daddy?"
The Prince let out a weary groan, his eyelids fluttering open. With as little noise as possible, he sat up from his bedside, wincing at the slight creak. He groggily rubbed his eyes and stared quizzically at the minuscule form, awkwardly standing at the doorway.
"I'm hung-wee." Bra whined.
Vegeta placed an index finger on his lips, tacitly urging her to keep her voice down, before cautiously clambering out of bed and tiptoeing towards the tiny toddler. He scooped her up in his arms and headed downs

Chapter 61: A hero's return
Two days passed by. Goku's fever had quelled, his skin tepid and no longer coated with clammy layers of sickly perspiration. The signs were promising and it was clear that Earth's hero had just about reached the end of his rocky road to recovery. Chi-Chi grasped his calloused hand firmly, planting a chaste kiss on the base of his palm and gently brushing her soft lips against the steadily beating thrum of his radial artery, eliciting a gratifying note of pleasure from the sturdy, slumbering Saiyan.

The Greatest Love
Everyone's jaw dropped at the unexpected scene that was happening before them. Prince Vegeta had appeared to welcome Lord Frieza when he has denied multiple times that he will not grace them with his presence today.
Last night, after sending Nappa to relay his message to his father's attendant, Prince Vegeta summoned Kakarot and Raditz before him.
"Prepare yourselves, both of you." He told them. "For you shall watch me make a scene tomorrow on Frieza's arrival."
His command made his two generals gape in shock and disbelief.
"Don't tell us you are planning to provoke the Emperor!" Raditz gasped.
"Please listen, your highness. If you do that, it would place not only you in great danger but also all of your people." Kakarot said. "Please do not forget how truly fearsome the Galactic Emperor is."
Of course, Vegeta knew exactly what he would be up to but he didn't care about it. He smirked at his best friends. "That is exactly what I want to happen."

CHAPTER TWENTY-THREE: BELLY OF THE UNDERWORLD
Vegeta ran around the track, his limbs pumped furiously, his breathing smooth; he almost felt like he was flying. Ever since he was a young boy on Vegetasai, he had loved to run and feel the wind on his face, feel his muscles move, feel the strength in his body. Now, on FP-79, there was no sun, no wind ... except what he created through his own efforts. Still he ran, and for a while allowed his mind to go to autopilot and dream. He exercised on a daily basis: working out in the weight rooms, fighting Saibamen in the training areas, practicing his forms, or working with Zarbon and Dodoria. He always felt better when he moved ... and now, he could use it to scrub the ever present anxiety from his mind for a little while.
After an hour of running at standard gravity, Vegeta had a light sheen of perspiration on his small but muscular bod
Burning HatredVegeta lay face down in the gravity room. It was set to 300 times Earth's gravity and he had been in the middle of push-ups when his arms gave out. He caught his breath, his lungs burning from the sheer weight of gravity threatening to collapse them the way it had his body.
He grit is teeth and tried to force his body off the ground lest it be crushed any further by the weight of his burning hatred for the one being that mocked his existence. Kakarot. No matter what he did or how much punishment he put himself through, he was still only second best. Him, a Prince of a mighty and prideful race, was second to a low class Warrior with brain damage.
How had his life become such a fucking joke? Oh, that's right, when he was given to the tyrant that used to torture him at every given chance in an attempt to break him. "FUCK THIS! FUCK ALL OF THIS!!" he roared as he forced himself up.
"I will NOT be second best to a clown! I will not be some blue bitch's pet! I will never be one of THEM!" he
