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
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 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
