Arrrgghhhh, I'm getting so behind on these! And
say why. Anyway though! I shall
endure! I ngelaidh dagrar1!... And stuff... Heh.
Jade: Okay, so we've
established that Jessie is a life-sucking .
Firefly: To wit; she has
founded a school for clinically evil children, made a home
for people with what she
believes to be bad hair, has legalised caffeine, (which
has a known narcotic effect on all Martians,) and she was
just a right evil cheap mothering y
back in Rocket Academie. Oh. And her gauntlet is
shiner than yours.
Jade: *looks slightly
irritated* Moving on then, she has also taken over my
position as resident goddess.
Firefly: I think that's
probably the biggest problem.
Jade: *begins unfastening her
gauntlet* Fred dear?
Fred: Yes Jade?
Jade: *hands him the
gauntlet* Take this somewhere and get it polished. I want
it to gleam. Right?
Fred: *nods and takes the gauntlet, looking more than a
slight bit in absolute and utter awe, and takes it off to
Martian Soldier: *walks to Tom, salutes* We are currently
orbiting the planet sir. Permission to... erm, well
Tom: Yeah, you do that.
Martian Soldier: *salutes once again* Yessir. *walks away
Tom: We’re about to land. D’you have any idea what you’re
going to do?
Jade: Not really. I was
thinking more or less of going
with the fly-by-the-seat-of-my-corduroys approach.
Tom: *shrugs* Works for me.
Fred: *Grinning from ear to ear, comes back in with Jade’s gauntlet laying on a pillow in his hands. It is glittering in a somewhat ethereal manner.* Here you are!
Jade: Oh Fred! It’s
*She picks it up and clips
it back onto her hand. It glitters ethereal-y some more.*
Let’s see Jessie’s do this, yo.
*She holds it up so that
the lights on the catch on the crystals, sending bright
prism-y rainbows dancing about the walls of the bridge*
Firefly: Wow. It’s never
been so... shiny. *he reaches out
his hand toward it*
Jade: *smacks his hand
away* Whoa there. You don’t want to
smudge it now...
Firefly: Come on, just lemme
touch it a little...
Firefly: Please? *makes a
Firefly: Pretty pretty
*After a while of orbiting and hailing down to the planet
air traffic control, the Martian ship finally lands on the
surface of the planet. It is a breezy and rather balmy day
on the surface of Mars2. There is a rather large crowd of
people waiting near the landing platform, looking somewhat
glad to see them as Jade
and the others. As soon as Jade
steps off the ship, she begins to glow in somewhat of an
Firefly: Wow. I wasn’t
Jade: You weren’t expecting
Firefly: You’re glowing.
Jade: *grins* Well, I am,
after all, the goddess.
Crowd: *assorted cheers such as “hurray,” “yay”*
Jade: *waves* Um, hi all.
Sorry I was gone so long, but see...
Random Martian 1: But hey who cares, you’re back now, yes?
Jade: Erm, I suppose so,
Crowd: *cheers again*
Firefly: *puts his face
close to Jade’s ear and
whispers* They certainly look happy to see you, but what about my needs, eh?
Jade: *laughs* Awww, you’re
*With a slight bit of difficulty, Jade and the others get
into a nondescript black hovercraft and speed off toward
the citadel in the centre of the city.*
Tom: *looking increasingly nervous* So, erm, d’you have a
Jade: No, Tom, but I
thought you had established that
Fred: You really might want to start thinking about a
Jade: Why should I bother
when my gauntlet is so shiny?
Tom: Because Jessie is a right evil cheap
mothering y , if you recall.
Jade: Oh, right. That.
Fred: Then you have a plan?
Fred and Tom *Giant proverbial anime sweat-drops appear
on their foreheads.*
*They arrive at the citadel and exit the hovercraft, then
are ushered inside.*
Jade: What has she done
with the décor?
Firefly: It looks like an
enlarged version of the Lovely
Room from Animal Crossing4 *he shudders*
Tom: *whispers* Yeah, we didn’t think you’d be too happy
Jade: Right, where is she,
then? I want my old y
Tom: *whispers* Don’t talk so loud, she might hear you...
*A small Siamese cat looking thing sidles into the room,
regards them all for a moment, and then gasps*
Jade: Don’t act so
Firefly: *waves* Hey Meowth.
Meowth: And Firefly! Wow,
we didn’t think youse guys was
*A young man with shoulder-length blue hair walks into the
James6: Meowth, quiet down, will you? Jessie’s
trying to sle- *gasp* Jadie! *He runs to her and hugs her
Jade: *squeaks* Ow...
James: *releases her* Oh, sorry...
Firefly: *raises a
disapproving eyebrow at Jade: * Hello
James: Firefly! Oh goodness
gracious, I’m so glad you two
Jessie: *screams from up the stairs* I thought I told you
all to be quiet!
James: *winces* Now we’ve done it...
Meowth: *tugs at the leg of Jade’s corduroys* You oughtta
go hide behind dat curtain dere.
Jade: No! That’s insane.
James: No, he has a point, really. The last time this
happened she just went on a rampa-
Jessie: I went on a what, James?
James: *curses under his breath, then mutters* Erm,
trees have gone to
war!'2Regardless of what those
scientist chaps say about there being that red spot and
all sorts of storms. I mean some on now, they’re
in’ scientists. What the do they
know...?3Can you tell that’s my favourite word
today?4For those who don’t
know, the Lovely Room set of furnishings (in the Gamecube
game Animal Crossing) consists chiefly of a whole lot of
pink and red, and hearts. On everything. Think the
girliest room you’ve ever seen, add more pink (on top of
what’s more than like already there,) and multiply it by
twenty.5Yes, as in Meowth from the Pokémon
series.6Do I even have to tell you who this is
after the Meowth thing? Just read the story,
