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.
"Oh, Mario... you should know I don't go awa

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
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
