Paper Mario: TTotS - Outro
"And that's it. That's the end of the story I promised you."
The storyteller closed the book he had been reading out of and looked down at his captive audience, two young Goombas, a brother and sister.
"So? Did you like it?"
"That was the coolest story ever!" the brother cheered as he bounced up and down. "Oh man, I love hearing stories about Mario! That fight was so awesome! First King Shroude was like bam! But then Mario was like wham! And then they were like – "
"So that story really happened?" the sister asked eagerly as her brother started running around in circles and making sound effects. "So does that mean everybody in the story is still around?"
"They sure are. It only happened ten years ago."
"That's so cool!" the brother gushed out as he scurried to a stop next to his sister. "I wanna meet all of those guys one day! Especially Mario!"
"I wanna meet Hanner!" the sister piped up.
Her brother gave her an incredulous look. "Why do

"Mario... Mario... Mario! Wake up!"
"Huh... wha?" Mario blinked his eyes open, then immediately squinted as he found himself staring directly up at the sun. "Wha... what happened? Where are we?"
He said up slowly and realized that, for the second time, he'd been deposited on the ground directly in front of the Soluna Temple... only this time, everyone was here with him.
"Oh, Mario, you're awake! Thank goodness!" Peach gasped from where she was kneeling next to him, and Mario realized hers was the voice he had just heard. His other friends were all sitting around and looking at him too, but suddenly he only had eyes for Peach.
He gazed at her, and it was only then that it finally hit him... for the first time in weeks, she was really back. All of her.
He had his arms around her before he knew what had happened.
"I... I really thought you were a goner this time..." he said quietly, fighting back tears.

Ferdinand was gasping and panting as he managed to haul himself and Peach back up onto the platform. Unfortunately, they got there just in time to see Shroude in the middle of what looked like a total mental breakdown, losing all pretense of collectiveness and cackling insanely as he floated several inches off the ground, spewing black lightning in every direction.
"...Woah. That dude does not react well to having flaws in his plans pointed out, does he?"
"Mario! Be careful!" Peach gasped and tried to hurry over to him, but he heard her and turned around with a panicked look.
"Peach! Stay back! It's not safe!" he shouted, desperate to protect her now that he'd finally found her. "Don't worry about me, we'll take care of him!"
"Uhhh, how are we doing that exactly?" Hanner asked awkwardly.
"You and your silly little friends can't hope to beat me now, Mario," Shroude laughed as he continued beating his huge wings. "With the power of

The room was the shape of an enormous sphere, with a round, vaulted ceiling high above them and a curving floor far below them. The wall – the whole thing was only one big wall – was somehow gold and silver at the same time, as though it couldn't decide what it wanted to be.
The group slowly passed through the doors and entered the large chamber. After they had all made it through, they spun around in shock at the sound of the doors slamming shut behind them, then slowly and reluctantly turned back around to face what was in front of them.
There was a large, round platform in the very center of the room, somehow hovering clear off the ground. The only way onto it was by another glowing light walkway that was right in front of the entrance. Floating several feet above the round platform was a semi-transparent black sphere... and there was someone inside of it.
"Mario?" Peach cried the instant she saw him enter the room. She immediate

The group was irritated to find yet another hallway full of Mini-Suns and Mini-Moons just beyond the door, identical to the previous one. Judging by the way the strange enemies were patrolling back and forth, there was no way to sneak past all of them.
"Ugh... not more of these things," Mario groaned. "We really don't have time to fight them all off again..."
"You're right, dude... so I say we take another option!" said Ferdinand as he stepped forward. Mario and the others watched in surprise as he suddenly jumped into the air and started crazily flapping his arms, and just like that, he summoned an enormous Tsunami from out of nowhere. It surged up underneath him, and he cheered as he rode it straight toward the enemies and it came crashing down on them, sweeping every last one of them out of the fight.
When it was over, he found himself standing in the middle of the dripping-wet hallway with the others all staring at him. "Heh heh... h

After leaving Garudawn's chamber and returning to the clock room, Mario already thought he knew what to do with the Sun Orb.
"One of these other rooms had a pedestal in it, right?" he recalled. "And it looked like the perfect size to fit this thing..."
So after turning the clock hand and rotating the floor one more time, the group was able to head into the first hallway where the pedestal was waiting. Sure enough, it had a small indentation in the top that seemed like the perfect fit for the orb.
"All right, well, here we go," said Mario, taking out the Sun Orb and placing it on the pedestal, bracing himself for whatever was about to happen...
Except absolutely nothing happened.
"That was boring," Stubba pouted.
Mario blinked. "But I'm sure this is where it goes... what else are we supposed to do?"
"Oh, look here, Mario. There's a sign on the wall," said Dulia, pointing at something on the far wall that he hadn't noticed. Sure enough, there was

The first thing the gang saw on the other side of the door was a long hallway that ended over at a short staircase leading down somewhere. The second thing they saw was a golden Bombshell Bill that was flying straight at them.
"AAAAAUGH!" Mario cried as the Bombshell Bill hit him right in the chest, exploding on impact and sending him crashing into the door behind them.
"Oh, great… not these again…"
"Uh oh… there's Bombshell Bill Blasters down at the end of the hallway," Dulia said nervously as Mario groaned and got to his feet. "I guess we have to beat them to keep going, huh?"
"That's how it always is," Mario sighed. Left with no other choice, the group carefully made their way down the hallway, maneuvering out of the path of the Bombshell Bills that would periodically come flying at them in pairs.
"All right, let's get rid of these stupid things!" Hanner cheered as they finally reached the pair of Blasters tha

One by one, Mario and his partners stepped through to the other side of the purple veil. Mario and Goomblaine were the last of all, and as they reached the other side they quickly walked over and joined their friends, who were all standing in the middle of the room and staring up in awe at the sight before them.
"Wooooooah," Stubba said quietly, craning his neck as he looked up. "Look at this place. It's so pretty in here."
Mario glanced around. They were in the same room he and Goomblaine had been in before, the room with the Aeon Clock inlaid in the floor. As he looked at the golden walls and the windows shining with light, he remembered how awestruck he'd been in here before and felt that feeling start to creep back. This time, though, the room was empty; there were no Guardians to be found, which wasn't much of a surprise.

Just outside of Rodolfo's house, everything was quiet and still and there were no passerby to be found… and then out of nowhere, there came a blinding flash as Mario's party suddenly appeared, crying out in shock as they were unceremoniously dumped in the middle of the street.
"Ow… what in the… what just happened?" Mario groaned, lying sprawled on the ground with Stubba on his back. He lifted his head up and looked around. "We're… back in Soluna Town?"
"Well, that's a relief… but how?" asked Dulia as she sat up, looking astonished. "We… we were just back in King Shroude's Fortress, and then… what happened?"
As Mario sat up and Stubba rolled off his back, he realized that the last thing they'd seen before winding up here was the Sun Soul. It had been glowing so brightly that it had suddenly grown blinding…
He grinned. "It was the Sun Soul," he said confidently. "Hah. Didn't I tell you guys? All t

King Shroude was pacing back and forth within the huge room that held the Aeon Clock. He was muttering darkly to himself, quickly running out of patience.
"Where is that huge lug?" he grumbled, still casting a shadowy ripple behind him as he walked. "He must have beaten Mario by now… this is ridiculous…"
He wasn't naïve enough to think that Mario wouldn't somehow find his way to the fortress. Why else would Shroude have gone through the trouble finding the perfect person to guard the final Sun Soul? Still, he'd given Bowser explicit orders to report back here the moment Mario was taken care of, and so far he'd heard nothing…
But then, right on cue, a huge plume of smoke suddenly rose out of the floor, causing the temperature in the room to drop. Shroude turned around expectantly as Blackout Bowser materialized from within the smoke – and then his eyes bulged from behind his hair as he saw that the Koop

Goomblaine sat in a corner somewhere above the Great Hall, obscured among the shadows and scowling to himself. Leaving the group probably hadn't been the safest idea, but there was no way he was going back to them. Mario had carted him along for long enough, and he was through with it.
He couldn't remember the last time he'd been so upset. His face was screwed up in misery as he sat by himself, hardly even caring if he was caught. Confronting Mario like that had opened up all of his old wounds, and he remembered all the more clearly now why he hated the Guardians so much… what they'd done to him, how they were supposed to be protectors but instead they'd taken everything away from him…
And Mario was no better. He was nothing but a pretentious blowhard, flaunting his hero status every chance he got and not caring about anything else. The only time he ever even gave Goomblaine a thought was when he was yelling at him

King Shroude's Fortress
12:00 Midnight

Deep underground, in the cellar of the fortress, seven heroes were slumped inside a cell, their heads hanging in defeat, not a word spoken among them. They knew they should be looking for a way to escape, but after what had happened a few minutes ago, none of them had the heart to try anymore. It seemed as though there was a gray cloud hanging over their heads.
And to be honest, they were all still dealing with the shock. They were almost too afraid to even open their mouths. For the longest time, the only sound in the room came from an echoing dripping noise coming from somewhere above their heads.
"Poor… poor Goomblaine," Stubba finally spoke up. "I feel so bad for him."
"Me too," Hanner sighed. "I mean, he was a jerk, but… he kind of had a good reason, huh?"
"If only he'd said something to us," said Maizee, gazing through the bars and looking guilty about something. "We could have done something for him. I never once i

It was even scarier inside the fortress than out.
That was what Mario and the others decided the moment they were in. They jumped as the huge wooden door slammed shut behind them and the loud noise echoed through the halls, though not before it let in a cold draft of air that made the entire group shiver.
Finally, they reluctantly looked around at where they were.
First of all, it was dark, though that was hardly a surprise. Not only that, for a stronghold that was supposed to be so important, the place had a decrepit and abandoned look to it, as though it were falling apart from the inside. The floor was made of cold hard stone, as were the walls, though they were currently standing on a tattered and worn red carpet that seemed to try to signify that this was a house of royalty. There were chains hanging from the ceiling, and the only windows back into the outside world were high up on the walls and seemed to only let in more darkne

After a moment the smoke finally died away and drifted off. Mario's eyes were tearing up as he coughed and tried to wave the remaining smoke away. Once he'd succeeded, he rubbed his eyes and looked around…
And saw, for the first time, where they were.
It was a dark, barren wasteland. The ground beneath them was dry and cracked, and the only sign that anything had ever lived there was a few dried-up shrubs and dead trees sticking up here and there. But the strangest thing about the land was its color; rather than being covered in the Nighttime darkness, the trees, the grass, the ground were all eerily pale, almost white, as though they were part of a film negative.
However bad that was, the sky was worse. It looked unnaturally huge and vaulting, and it was pitch black… blacker than Mario had ever seen it at home. It was filled with stars, which should have comforted him a

The manager of the Seashell Hotel was not too happy about how much his hotel had been wrecked in the process of Mario's team saving everyone, but even he realized that he didn't have much right to complain.
"I suppose we'll just have to close again… for re-renovations…" he sighed as everyone was gathered on the beach in front of the entrance. "Er, I mean… thank you again, Mister Mario. You are truly a laudable hero for saving us all back there. Once the place is up and running again, you and your friends can stay as long as you like… for free!"
Hanner looked excited. "For free? Really?"
"…Well, maybe half price."
Mario smiled. "Well, that's awfully nice of you, but I don't know when we'll have a chance to come back," he admitted. "Those Darkstriders aren't finished around here yet, and we've got to go take care of them once and for all."

Well let's see... I am a generally odd individual who likes teh video games. I pride myself on my snarkiness and sense of humor :D I also love playing the piano! Apart from writing it's one of the things I'm best at. Not much of an athlete, but I swam competitively throughout school and now I'm learning taekwondo, which automatically makes me awesome. I am in grad school studying psychology.

I don't upload a lot of art due to my general suckiness, but y'know, you can have a look anyway :P
