AN: This takes place during the summer between Twilight and New Moon. It's basically what happens when vampires get bored and have nothing to do. Chaos and madness shall ensue and vampires will be traumatized. Well mainly Emmett but whatever :) Anyways...I really can't summarize things so I'll stop now before you guys get bored of my rambling and leave before even reading the story.
Disclaimer: I don't own Twilight. Or Super Smash Bros. Or the GameCube. Actually I do own one of those but still :)
Chapter 1 Super Smash Bros.
It was another peaceful Friday afternoon at the end of yet another summer week. School had been out for almost a month now, and I had spent practically every day over at the Cullens' house. It was almost eerie how much the fish population in Forks had risen this summer, and as a result Charlie's second home was the lake where he spent most of his time with Billy.
I was currently sitting in Alice's room, laying on her soft, plush, hot pink carpet, counting the dots on her ceiling. Although this was turning out to be one of the best summers I've ever had, it did get boring sometimes, especially when the guys were engaged in a massive Super Smash tournament on the Game Cube. Through the partially open door, I could hear Emmett's outraged yell and Edward's light laughter as Emmett's character got a whack on the head from an umbrella Edward had chucked at him. I giggled to myself. Apparently Edward really was good at everything.
Suddenly, a pair of bright yellow bell-bottoms landed on my head. With a groan, I peeled them off and glanced towards Alice's closet. She and Rosalie had been sorting out their unwanted clothes. As Alice put it, "When you haven't worn something in twenty years, you probably won't wear it again." Plus, this gave them both an opportunity to shop for more clothes, and that was something they definitely wouldn't pass up. I brought the pants over to Rosalie, who was contemplating a ripped, off-the-shoulder black t-shirt.
"Thanks," she said absentmindedly, taking them from me, and threw them over her shoulder, where they hit Alice, who was sorting through her purse collection.
"Hey!" Alice shouted, but Rosalie ignored her.
"Do you think this t-shirt would look good on me?" she asked. I opened my mouth to reply but she cut me off and said, "Who am I kidding? Everything looks good on me." I shut my mouth with a snap and looked at her silently. I wasn't exactly sure what to say to such a display of self-flattery, and I didn't even know if I was supposed to say anything at all. Luckily, I was saved from answering by an ear-splitting crash from downstairs, and the three of us glanced at each other in surprise. Wordlessly, they ran out of the closet, Alice effortlessly scooping me up along the way. As she flew down the stairs, I contemplated what could happen. Maybe the aliens were coming? During one long Thursday night a couple of weeks ago, I had developed a theory that we were about to be attacked from outer-space, but when I told Edward my idea, he just shrugged it off with a laugh and a "Silly Bella, you know there is no such thing as aliens."
What really happened was much, much worse. Smoke was billowing out of the living room, and I coughed as we entered. I could hear someone who sounded like Emmett sobbing, and I wondered if the aliens had vaporized Rosalie or something. As the room cleared, I saw, though, that everybody was okay. However, they were all looking at something in the middle of the room and I turned my head as Alice put me down.
Emmett was rocking back and forth on his knees, his arms wrapped as tightly as possible around the extremely large TV that now had a smoking Game Cube sticking out of the screen. He was petting it and dry-sobbing, and saying things like, "I'm so sorry, please forgive me."
I stared at him in confusion, then looked up at Edward for an explanation. He smirked and wrapped his arms around me. "What happened?" I asked.
There was laughter in his voice as he replied. "Jasper and I were totally creaming him, so he got fed up and threw the Game Cube at the TV."
I gaped at him and was about to ask him a question, when suddenly I felt a breeze. When I looked again, Edward wasn't there. I heard an angry yell, and I whipped around to see Edward and Emmett wrestling around on the floor. Edward had a furious look on his face.
"Get off me," he shouted.
"Never!" Emmett replied. "You broke the TV!"
Edward was so surprised at this that he momentarily stopped struggling. Emmett took the opportunity to punch him in the face. Edward roared and tackled him. "What are you talking about? You're the one who threw the dumb thing."
Emmett slapped Edward. This looked so funny that I couldn't help but giggle. Edward glanced at me with a hurt expression, but suddenly a devilish smile spread across his face and he and ran towards me, freeing himself from Emmett's headlock. When he stopped, I found myself sitting on his lap on the couch. "Hey not fair!" Emmett whined. "You know I wouldn't hurt Bella."
"You better not," Edward smirked. Emmett growled at him
"Stop. Enough. No fighting," Rose said with a bored look on her face from her safe position on the armchair.
Jasper looked at her disgustedly. "I applaud your peace-making skills," he said sarcastically, bowing to her. Suddenly Alice squealed and we all turned in her direction.
"Alice?" I asked apprehensively. She clapped her hands and jumped up and down. "I've got an idea!"
"Don't you always?" muttered Emmett under his breath, but he was silenced from going further by a dirty look from Jasper.
Unfazed, Alice continued. "This is how we're going to resolve this fight," she announced. "We're going to play Super Smash Bros."
Edward looked at her like she was crazy. "Um…in case you haven't noticed Alice, the TV and Game Cube are both broken."
Alice gave an un-ladylike snort. "Duh Edward. How dumb do you think I am?" She was met by silence as nobody chose to respond to that comment. Alice rolled her eyes. "Anyways dummy, we're not playing video game Super Smash. We're gonna play real life Super Smash."
I had a puzzled look on my face and I'm sure everybody else did too. Alice sighed. "The three of you guys will fight in a real life battle. Rosalie and Bella and I will set up the place where it'll take place."
"And where is that exactly?" Jasper interrupted.
"Jazz shush. You guys will be fighting in Mushroom Kingdom," Alice announced triumphantly.
Even with my dull human hearing, I could hear the crickets chirping in the backyard.
Alice pouted. "You guys are no fun," she complained. But with Alice, she was never upset for along. With a perky smile back on her face, she continued. "Before we go set up the place for the battle, the three of you will draw out of a hat to pick the characters you get to be. Then you HAVE to go to your room and get into costume. I'll have weapons for you guys when you come down."
Rosalie looked at her skeptically. "Weapons?"
"Yes Rosalie, there shall be weapons," Alice pronounced dramatically.
Rosalie eyed her for a second then went back to examining her nails. "Whatever," she muttered.
Alice refused to be put out by this lack of enthusiasm and produced a hat from behind her back. "Okay guys! Time to pick your character thing!"
I did a double-take. "When did you get the hat, Alice?" I asked.
Alice giggled. "I just didn't want the author of this story to waste any pages."
"How considerate of you," Edward mumbled. I silenced him with a soft kiss on his lips. Looking up from behind my eyelashes, I said seductively, "I'll be cheering for you Eddie." Edward positively beamed, and he seemed to forget the usage of his hated nickname. Smoldering me with his eyes, he whispered, "I'll win for you, darling."
Emmett snorted, ruining the moment, and chucked a pillow at Edward's head. "Don't get so cocky," he said. Without looking away from me, Edward caught it with one hand and threw it back. Slowly, he leaned in to kiss my lips. Suddenly, he disappeared, and I looked around, disorientated. I spotted him on the floor, where he had been bowled over by Alice. "You have time for that later, Eddie," she said. "It's your turn to pick!"
Edward picked himself up and sighed. "Fine. But don't call me Eddie."
Alice giggled and thrust out the hat. Edward reached in and rummaged around for a bit. He pulled out a slip of paper and read what it said. His eyes scanned it quickly and he pumped his fist. "Yes! I got Link!" he shouted. "I shall defeat you all!"
Emmett groaned. "Not fair! He's always Link."
Jasper smirked. "That's because Link is way too cool for you. Here Alice, I'll go next." Reaching into the hat, he came up with…. "Alice, no way," Jasper complained. "I'm not gonna be Pikachu."
Emmett roared with laughter. "Who's cool now?" he crowed.
Jasper looked at him with doe-eyes. In a little baby voice, he said, "I'm gonna be the cutest Pikachu ever."
Emmett looked at him, disconcerted by Jasper's sudden shift in attitude. "Er…yeah," he said. "Um…I think I'll pick now." He grabbed the hat from Alice and pulled something out. I didn't know vampires could change colors, but his skin turned purple, then green, then ashen with five seconds. "No," he said. "No way."
Rosalie, who had been silent through this whole event, suddenly materialized besides Emmett and read over his shoulder. Suddenly, she broke down laughing and rolled about on the floor. "No fair," Emmett whined. "Rose, honey, you're supposed to be on my side." It took her five minutes, but slowly she quieted with a last shuddering gasp. "Sorry dear," she said. "Don't worry, I've got the perfect costume for you." And with that, she started cracking up again.
"What is it?" I asked eagerly. If even Rosalie would laugh at her husband, it had to be bad. Emmett shook his head at me. I looked up at Edward, who read Emmett's mind. Suddenly, the unthinkable happened. Edward giggled. The room fell silent and we all stared at him. Even Rose paused for a second to stare in shock. "Um, honey," I ventured timidly. "Was that…a giggle?"
A horrified look grew on his face. He fell to the floor, clutching his chest. "Giggling….not…manly…" he groaned. I dropped down beside him. Running my fingers through his hair, I tried to sooth him. "It's okay Edward," I said. "Everybody makes mistakes. By the way, did you see what Emmett's character is?"
Suddenly, he bounced to his feet, all embarrassment forgotten. "Oh yeah!" he said gleefully. He ran to a drum set in the corner of the room that I hadn't noticed before, and started a long drum roll. In an announcer voice, he said, "Emmett is the one, the only….Princessss Peach!"
I could swear at that moment that Emmett's agonized yell could be heard throughout Forks. "NOOOOOOOOOO"
AN: So what did you guys think? Sorry if I messed up any references to Super Smash. I haven't played it in a while. If you noticed any mistakes or maybe haven't played the game and have a question, feel free to email me :) I had a lot of fun writing this so I hope you guys have fun reading it.
