Well, guys… It looks like this is the end. This is the final chapter of the whole story. 158 chapters in total. That must be a pretty big achievement there. But, it kinda feels sad that it's coming to an end already. Don't you guys think the same thing too? Well, I'm not gonna bother speaking about this stuff now. Just enjoy this final chapter of Paper Chopper: The Crystal Stars!
As everyone made their way out of the portal, they noticed that Dream Land seemed to be the same as it was from the very beginning. There was no darkness anywhere in sight. Things turned out to be peaceful now, which is what exactly they all wanted to see when they made their way back here. At the moment, it was close to dawn.
"Poyo! (This place looks peaceful as it usually is! How nice!)" Kirby smiled.
Chopper stretched, but he stopped when the twenty Crystal Stars floated above him. "Wait… What's going on with the Crystal Stars?"
Everyone gaped as they saw them go to the fountain. They emitted a large amount of light that created a large, invisible light barrier around the universe. No darkness would be reaching this place now.
"Wow… Did the Crystal Stars actually do that?" Vivian asked, gazing at them in awe.
"It looks like it," Chopper smiled as he made his way out of the Fountain of Dreams. Everything looked like it was back to normal. There was no darkness in sight, nor was there a missing castle up at the distance. "Finally! Things are back to the way that they should be!"
"Yeah, I really like this!" Tamber sat down on the hill that was right by Hatty Town. "Everything feels so peaceful now! I feel like I can finally relax in peace! Don't you think so, Chopper?"
"Chopper? Is that really you?"
Chopper's antennas sprung up when he saw the Mayor standing by the fountain with an expression of shock and happiness.
"I don't believe it! You're finally back!" the Mayor cried. "And with everything back to normal, that must mean the universe is saved! I'm so proud of you guys... I… I couldn't be more proud!"
"Mayor? What are you doing here?" Chopper gaped.
"I had come here to see if you would ever return... I came here for days. At first, I lost hope... But then you finally arrived!"
"Well, at least you didn't lose all hope," Sonic grinned.
"Yes... That is true. Now... I believe there are some people you might want to pay a visit. Flyer, don't you have a girl that you need to see? And you, Chopper… I believe you should go pay King Dedede and Escargon a visit. I think they'll be surprised to see their castle is back!"
"Fumu! Oh, man! I nearly forgot about her!" Flyer immediately jumped up and he began to fly down to Hatty Town. "You guys can meet me there if you want! If you see me, I'll be with Fumu!"
Chopper waved goodbye to Flyer, but his arm was grabbed by Heartsy. "Wait… What're you doing, Heartsy?"
"Don't you remember, Choppy? Now that everything's back to normal, we need to get ready for our wedding!" she squealed.
"No way!" Chopper managed to get her arm out of her grasps. "Listen, Heartsy… It's a bit TOO soon to get married. Why don't you wait until I'm a bit older when I MIGHT be interested in a relationship. OK?"
"…Yeah, I suppose you're right on that. Maybe when we're sixteen, I'll have a chance of going out with you." She still smiled at him, though. "…But I'll still love you no matter what."
"Sure, whatever. I have to pay King Dedede and Escargon a visit though. I'll be back!" Chopper, using his speed, made his way down to the hill where King Dedede and Escargon would possibly be crying.
Over by the hill-
"Things are still hopeless! We're never going to get our castle back!" King Dedede cried. He was still hugging Escargon, who was doing the same thing.
"I can agree with you too, Your Majesty!" cried Escargon. "How are we supposed to get a new home when it's going to look so bad? ! I want my old home back!"
When Chopper made it to the two, he noticed they were still crying. "Seriously… What babies they are! They don't even notice that their castle is right OVER THERE!" he thought with an annoyed look.
"Hey, you guys!" Chopper shouted. Unfortunately, he couldn't get their attention. "Uhhh… GUYS? !" Still… He got nothing.
"Oh, screw it," He grabbed the megaphone in King Dedede's robe pocket and he used it to shout. "STOP CRYING, YOU TWO!"
At that moment, King Dedede and Escargon were crying. "What the… What're you doing here, Chopper? Can't you see we're trying to cry here? ! I think I oughta hit you for that!"
"Wait! Before you hit me… Why don't you look over by that hill over there." Chopper pointed to the hill where Castle Dedede sat.
"Holy… My castle! It's back! How… How did it return? !" the king gaped.
"Well, thanks to me destroying that dark core, I think I was able to bring that castle back. I suppose Bowser's Castle is back to where it is too… Well, I HOPE that it is, 'cause if it isn't, then there's a problem." Chopper looked back at King Dedede. "Now… You said something about a promise, right?"
"Oh, who cares about that? We got what we wanted back! Thanks for all the help, Chopper!" Escargon grinned.
"Why I oughta…" Chopper pulled his hammer out and he slammed it down on King Dedede's head. Escargon couldn't help but chuckle.
"Oh! Now THAT'S something I like to see a lot! Good one, Chopper!" Escargon was the next one to get struck by Chopper's hammer. "Oooog… OK, I'll admit that that was a bit painful…"
"Fine… We'll give you and your friends a little ceremony. We'll also…gulp…put you in our Hall of Fame." King Dedede mumbled.
"Really? You'll actually do that for us?" Chopper gaped.
"Well, I feel like I gotta repay you. You DID save my castle. So… I think it's best if I did that. I'll go tell the people of Hatty Town to meet me over by my castle. We'll have a ceremony there."
"Sounds good! I think I'm going to go tell them right now!" Chopper made his way towards Hatty Town, while King Dedede and Escargon slowly followed them.
At Hatty Town-
"So… It looks like light has finally returned to Dream Land…" Frankly studied the sky, despite the fact that it's dawn. "I suppose Chopper managed to take care of that evil demon once and for all!"
"Yeah, I'm relieved. But… Where is he? Shouldn't he have come here?" Fumu questioned.
"I believe he should be coming here," The two turned to see Meta Knight and his two servants. "Relax, my friends. We're not her for a fight. We were just in one with the Hellspawns, for your information."
"Wait, you were trapped in Hell?" Fumu questioned.
"Yeah, we were down there because we were in King Dedede's Castle. But, we were able to find a portal that brought us here, so that's a relief." Sword said.
"As for the others with us… Well, they found a portal that led them back home. Those three guys and that villain they had prisoner all returned home. Rest assured. Everything's back to normal!" Blade stated.
"But now I must look for Chopper," Meta Knight pulled out a red book. "We were deciding on what to do with this book. This contains all of the history about the Crystal Stars."
"Fumu!" a voice called out. Fumu turned to see Flyer making his way to her. "I missed you so much!"
"Flyer!" Fumu opened her arms out to catch him in a hug. "I missed you so much! Where have you been all this time?"
"We were fighting against Maquano, but it was Chopper who managed to finish off the whole thing," Flyer stated.
"Where is Chopper right now?" Meta Knight questioned.
"He went over to King Dedede to tell him about his castle," Flyer heard the sound of fast footsteps coming close. "…Actually, I believe he's coming here right now!"
Chopper made it back to Hatty Town, exhausted. "All right, I'm here… Where's everyone else?" he asked.
"They're coming, don't worry," Flyer assured. He looked back at Fumu and looked in her eyes. "Now that we're back together again, we should spend some more time together. Don't you think so?"
"Of course, Flyer!" Fumu assured, the two embracing each other tighter.
"Eeeeughh…" Chopper gagged, sticking his tongue out in disgust. "I'm glad I'm NOT in that situation…"
"Chopper…" the young Star Warrior turned to Meta Knight. "I'm glad you're here. I need to discuss something about this book."
"What's this book?" Chopper questioned while taking it from him.
"It's the book that tells the story about the Crystal Stars. We were thinking whether we should destroy it or keep it in a safe place, away from the clutches of evil."
"…Why should we destroy it? We can always show it to people so they can know what happened. I'd rather keep it that way. It's not like Maquano's possessing this thing or anything…"
"…Yes, I believe that you have a point. I'll keep it in a safe place." Meta Knight took the book from Chopper and he put it away. "I'll put it somewhere where no one, not even King Dedede, can get it."
"Who called my name?" King Dedede called out, huffing from all the running he had to go through.
"Ah, King Dedede… What brings you back here?" Frankly asked.
"Huff… I… I decided to do something nice by…whew…giving Chopper and his group of friends a ceremony. We shall begin…right away." King Dedede fell over on his back from exhaustion.
"Errrr… Yes! Follow us to the castle and we shall reward them for their brave act! …And for saving our castle." Escargon pouted.
Everyone smiled as they walked to Castle Dedede. Escargon, unfortunately, wasn't too happy. He was forced to drag the heavy King Dedede all the way over to their castle.
"Ugh… I feel like I'm going to break my back!" Escargon moaned. "…Wait, I don't even have a back!"
Over by Castle Dedede-
"Chopper… Vivian… Scrub… Kirby… Shadower… Bombette… Heartsy… Mario… Sonic… Flyer…and Tamber…" King Dedede began as he turned to the eleven that were on the stage for the ceremony. "Your actions have not only saved my castle, but the whole universe. If it weren't for you, then we would all be in some deep yogurt, and I would certainly be a homeless king. We give you the Medal of Honor for your brave actions."
King Dedede grumbled as he gave the medals to Escargon. From what Chopper and his friends saw, he didn't really want to do this (since he DOES hate Chopper and Kirby).
"Here are your medals," Escargon put them around everyone's necks (or heads if they don't have a neck) and Fumu, Bun, the Mayor, Professor Frankly, and all of the Cappies sitting in the audience cheered and gave them a round of applause.
"Oh, I couldn't be any prouder for Chopper…" Frankly sniffed.
"Thank you very much," Chopper smiled as he went up to the stand to give a speech. "I would like to thank my friends for this great adventure I went on with them. We've plowed through many things such as monsters, evil demons, robots, and even an evil X-Naut that got killed by Maquano. I would also like to thank YOU! Yeah… I'm talking to you up there in the computer monitor! If you managed to get through this whole thing, then you are… You've got a lot of guts to go through an adventure with 158 parts in it! I'm sorry, but that's gotta be pretty big of you to do that. I salute you for that!"
"…What's he talking about?" a Cappy whispered to his friend. He only replied with a simple shrug.
"As happy I am to be a hero…" Chopper started to frown. "But then there's the part where I have to leave… Sadly, I think the time is starting to come very soon."
Frankly frowned and he jumped up on stage as people gasped. "Chopper… You really want to go now?"
"Well, I'd rather stay here for a while, but I don't think I have the time. I need to see how my home planet is doing. That's where I truly belong. This place is nice and all…but I already have a home."
"Well, if you wish to go, then go right ahead," King Dedede grinned. "Finally! I'll be rid of him once and for all!"
"I know it feels bad to be going right this moment, but when else am I supposed to go? Sorry to disappoint you guys…"
"It's all right, Chopper. You have a home to go back to anyways." Bun replied.
"You're always welcome here," Fumu smiled.
Chopper slowly nodded to them before turning to his friends. "We should go somewhere else if we're going to say goodbye, my friends…"
Everyone else gave him a nod, but they too were frowning a bit. Not in anger, but in sadness.
A bit later, over by a hill-
"So… You're leaving, then." Frankly began. "Well, that's too bad… Having you around really did wonders for my research…"
"It's OK, Frankly! You still have Goombella with you, you know." Flyer smiled. "She IS your assistant, after all… But, it does feel sad to see you go, Chopper…"
"Hrrrmmmm… Well, I guess you're right, Flyer." Frankly turned back to Chopper. "Chopper… Even after you leave here, please don't forget about us, all right? And we, in return, will wish that you find all the best in the future."
Flyer took a deep breath as he walked over to Chopper. "Chopper… From here on out, you'll always be my best friend, no matter the odds. Sure, we may have had a bad situation on your planet where we got in a fight, but I wanna make sure that that never happens."
"Don't worry, Flyer. I'll make sure that we never have to go through anything like that ever. I'll make sure that I think of you whenever I come to your home city. …Maybe I'll even see you, too!" Chopper smiled.
"Thanks Chopper. That means a lot to me."
Flyer stepped back and he allowed Kirby to walk up to him next. "Poyo… (Chopper… It really pains me to say goodbye to you. I know from the start that we had to get separated, but in the end, things turned out to be well for us.)"
"Yes, they did, Kirby! …And before I leave, I think I need to give you something." Chopper pulled the Star Rod out and he gave it to him. "I believe that this needs to go back to the Fountain of Dreams, doesn't it?"
Kirby looked at the Star Rod for a few seconds, but then his eyes began to water. "Poyo! (Oh, Chopper… I'm going to miss you so much!)"
Chopper managed to comfort his pink fluffy friend as tears came down his face. "It's OK, Kirby… I'll miss you too." His eyes started to water a bit. "No, Chopper! This is not the time for crying!"
Kirby stepped away from Chopper as he began to cry. Heartsy walked up to Chopper next with a sad look.
"Choppy… I just want to let you know that I'll always remember you with this." She pulled out a Chopper plushie. "It's a plushie of you! Vivian had one of you too, if I could recall."
"…Yeah. I remember. It's going to be sad that you're not gonna be around." Chopper started to blush nervously. "And…er…" He quickly gave her a kiss on the cheek before sticking his tongue out in disgust.
"Bleeugh! That was awful!" he gagged.
Heartsy felt completely stunned. He actually kissed her! She felt like she was completely in love with him. So much, that she tackled Chopper and started to kiss him all over his face.
"Awwwww… That was cute!" Bombette giggled.
"Bleeuughh! Gross!" Chopper spat as he finally got up and tried to wipe all of the kisses off his face. Heartsy skipped back away from him with hearts flying all over her.
"Here. Take this." Shadower gave Chopper a handkerchief was he floated over to him. "Chopper, I want to say that out of all the people I've met, you were the nicest person to me. Ever since I was forced to look for that Superbombomb, you managed to help me become a better person. And for that, I thank you."
"It's all right, Shadower! You were always a cool person anyways! Afros are something I wish I had for hair! Someone who has an afro is automatically an awesome person!" Chopper gave him a thumbs up.
"Sniff… Yeah, I guess so…" Shadower sniffled as he began to float away. Sonic came up to him with a grin.
"Honestly, I've never met someone with such a cool attitude such as yourself. You're almost a rival to me when it comes to speed! …But we all know who's the winner when it comes to that." Sonic said in a cocky voice.
"Yeah, we know that it's you, Sonic. You're the blue blur, after all…" Chopper sniffled.
"Are you crying?" he asked.
"What? Er… NO! I can't cry! I'm too manly for that!"
"Well… It seemed like you were crying. But, let's hope we meet each other some other time, OK?"
"Yeah… Let's hope." Chopper sighed as Sonic stepped away. Bombette made her way to Chopper next.
"Oh, Chopper… I know I've gotten a bit angry when you said something, but that's just my temper. Besides, if it weren't for you, I wouldn't have gotten my memory back! To think I would stay acting like a pirate this whole time… But, I have you to thank!" Bombette said cheerfully.
"Yeah, thanks for helping me too. You've done the same for me as well."
"Yeah… Well, I hope I see you some other time." She quickly pecked his cheek before she stepped back. Chopper almost felt disgusted, but he decided not to be like that.
Afterwards, Mario came up to him and he told him that he wanted to thank him for what he's done, such as saving him from being completely possessed by the Shadow King and whatnot.
"You're welcome, Mario. It's a good thing that I found you in Rogueport earlier. …Say hi to Peach for me, OK?"
Mario gave him a nod before almost shedding a tear. No. He was too manly to shed any tears.
Scrub came up to him afterwards. "Contadre… Oh, yeah, wait. I've gotta stop doing that. It's CHOPPER, right? Well… You'll always be Contadre to me, man. Because I was born in the Glitz Pit, and Contadre is, and always will be, the champ! So let's hope we meet again, Contadre! I mean it, man!"
"…I hope we see each other too, man. I think you deserve something for all of that help." Chopper pulled his Master Hammer out and he handed it to him. "Here. Scrub. I think you deserve this."
Scrub looked down at the hammer. "What…? You're… You're giving me your all-powerful hammer? But… Why?"
"I won't really need it, now that Maquano's gone. Besides, the Crystal Stars have protected the universe from any darkness now. I think you should use that if you're ever going to fight in the Glitz Pit."
Scrub held the weapon in his hands. "…Thanks, man. It really means a lot. …Sniff."
After Scrub stepped back, Vivian came floating up to him shyly. "Ummmm… Chopper… Listen… I really want to thank you for listening to me all of those times. It really does mean a lot to me…"
"It's all right, Vivian… I know that you're not a bad person. You almost saved me there from Maquano back in Dark Subspace World. I… I don't know how to repay you."
Chopper thought for a minute, but he ended up blushing nervously. "Oh, come on! Do I REALLY have to do this? I feel like I'm going to gag from doing this AGAIN!"
Chopper gulped as he pulled Vivian's hat off, seeing her beautiful sparkling eyes. He then placed a kiss on her lips. "…Does that make you feel any better?"
Vivian's face turned to a deep shade of red. "…Oh, Chopper!" She, like Heartsy, tackled Chopper to the ground, kissing him all over his face. "That was such a sweet thing for you to do!"
When Chopper got up, his tongue was out in disgust as he was covered in Vivian's kisses. "Eeuuughh! Not again!"
Vivian giggled as she kissed his cheek once last time. "Please… Don't forget about me, OK?" As she floated away, Tamber walked over to him next.
"Hey, buddy… You need help getting all of that off?" he asked.
"'Buddy'? Well that's a new one…" Chopper said, trying to wipe his face clean. He noticed Tamber's eyes started to water. "Wha… Don't start to cry! You're going to… Oh, who am I kidding?"
Chopper started to burst in tears as he hugged Tamber. "I'm honestly going to miss you, Tamber! I understand you've been somewhat of a jerk at times, but you ARE honestly a great friend!"
"I think of you as a friend too, Chopper…" Tamber sniffled. "…No! I can't cry! I'm… I'm too cool to cry like this. Not after what happened with my past and whatnot. Chopper… You may be a puffball, but you're a cool one."
"Tamber, would it be nice if I visited your island once in a while? Flyer and I could go over there and see you if possible…"
"…Yeah, man. I would like that."
After he stepped away, Chopper walked over to the top of the hill. "Well… Looks like this is goodbye to you all."
"Chopper! Before you go…" Meta Knight came flying down to the hill. "I believe you forgot something…"
He pulled the red book out and he gave it to Chopper.
"Wait… Why are you giving this to me?" he questioned.
"I've thought over for a while…and I decided that you should hold onto the book. It is yours now. In the future, you may read that to your kids and pass it down to them when your time has come." Meta Knight stated.
Chopper looked down at the red book. "OK, Meta Knight. I'll do that."
He made a sharp whistle before he got on the Warp Star he summoned. "I'm glad you guys helped me. If it weren't for you guys, the whole universe would be in darkness."
"What? Nonsense! We're the ones that should be thanking you, Chopper!" Frankly stated. "If you hadn't come here to collect the Crystal Stars… We'd all be puppets for Maquano, Grodus and Gemerl! The thought gives me hives!"
"…Well, I guess so. Farewell, everyone. I hope to see you some other time…" Chopper immediately flew off into space as he waved goodbye to everyone. They waved goodbye as well, having tears down their face.
"I'll miss you…Chopper, Star Warrior of Planet Clara," Vivian sniffled.
As Chopper flew up into space, he could see some of the stars made themselves look just like Chopper's friends. He tried to reach for them with tears down his face, but he knew that he couldn't reach them any longer.
"What a shame to leave my friends at this moment… But I guess taking the long way home is the better idea." He noticed that Clara was all right and no longer in darkness.
"Well, at least the planet's all better. I'm so relieved." At that point, he made his way to his home planet.
Four weeks later-
"Man… I can't believe I'm finally back home!" Chopper gawked, sighing in relief. "I know I've said that a couple of times for the last four weeks, but man, I can't believe I saved the UNIVERSE! That's…big."
He yawned as he lay on his red sofa. "I wonder what my friends are doing right now. It's been quite a while since I've seen them."
At that moment, his Mailbox SP on the counter went off. "Huh? What's that?" He got off of his sofa and he walked over to his Mailbox SP. "Someone sent me a new message? I oughta check it myself!"
He opened the device and he read the message that was being read on it.
Hey there, buddy! It's me, Flyer! I'm still working on some cool little gadgets at my workshop, but I thought to myself, 'Why not send you a message? You have a Mailbox SP, after all…' so I decided to see how you were doing after these four weeks. We beat Maquano, but there's tons of Rogueport lore I still don't get while walking around there. That's what I got from Professor Frankly.
"Ooh! So Flyer got to see Professor Frankly! How cool!"
While I was going about with my traveling, I thought why not go see our friends that helped us defeat Maquano? Well, I decided to do that, and guess what? I've gotten a lot of info from them!
I decided to go take a visit to Twilight Town first to see what was going on there. To my surprise, I ended up seeing Vivian there! I noticed that her two sisters were with her, but she told me that Beldam's no longer into evil anymore. I guess it might be because she feared Maquano? That would make perfect sense… Beldam also told me to tell you that she'll never EVER be mean to Vivian ever again…unless she does something that's bad or whatnot. When I spoke to Vivian, she always brought you up for some reason. Maybe you ought to go visit her some time…
"I'm glad Vivian's doing fine. But, I'm a bit surprised that Beldam's a good guy and treating her nicely. Whoa…"
How's Scrub doing? Well… When I saw him, he said he was going solo in the Glitz Pit! He even said that he's getting pretty close to a title match, even! Pretty cool, isn't it? …Well, it's not as fast as you, but he's doing well! That hammer you gave him was put to some GOOD use! Oh, yeah, he's calling himself 'The Great Contadre Jr.' in the ring, by the way. I thought that it was pretty weird, but I thought it was a bit cute. Oh, and… Wait, I have to get this exactly right or he'll most likely get mad at me… He, uh, said that he could "totally take you in the ring now, so bring it!" I guess he doesn't change… But, I bet you could beat him if you used your super form, right?
"Huh… So he wants to challenge the Great Contadre, huh? Pbbbbth! If he wants to face me, then bring it!"
I stopped by over by Dream Land afterwards to see how Kirby was doing. It was hard for me to understand what he had to say, but I was able to use my translator to understand him. He said that he was stopping King Dedede there and there from stealing food from Dream Land. That's pretty much it on what he did. Oh, and I also saw Fumu, who I spent some time with, and Meta Knight, who said hi for some reason. Kinda strange how he's been caring for you somewhat.
"Well, I guess Meta Knight IS somewhat of a father figure of mine…"
Over by the Dark Steeple, which changed back to the Creepy Steeple, I saw Shadower and his two brothers there. It looks like Mysterious has given up on evil just like Beldam. It's most likely for the same thing. I'm even surprised that Doopliss is back in his home too! I guess he and the Shadow Brother ended up becoming great friends. I was expecting to see Tipral there…but there was no sign of him anywhere. I wonder where he went…
"I'm not sure where he went either… Did he escape to somewhere else or something?" Chopper pondered.
Over by Pudgy Island, I was able to see Bombette there. I thought for certain that she would go back to the Mushroom Kingdom, but she didn't! I'm quite surprised, actually! She told me she enjoyed being around here. I can even recall her sailing with Bobbery and Cortez! I guess they believe she's a great hero after defeating Maquano. That's good for her!
"She's sailing with Bobbery? Interesting…"
As for Heartsy, I decided to go to her place. She seemed quite surprised to see me. She even asked if you were there! I know that she said that she's been doing the same old stuff, but she still remembers you kissing her four weeks ago. You're lucky you're not around, or else she would've smothered you with kisses at that point. But, I know she said she wanted to see you, so maybe you ought to go visit her sometime.
"…I really didn't want to remember that kiss," Chopper gagged.
While flying to the Mushroom Kingdom, I met a couple of your friends there! I saw people like Yosho, Bow, Bruce, Koopla, and quite a few! But, I was also able to see Mario, Luigi, Peach and Bowser! Yup! Bowser's Castle is still where it used to be, so there's no worries about that! You think you can take on Bowser one last time?
"Oh, I bet I can!" Chopper smirked.
Getting to Mobius was a bit difficult, but I successfully made it there. I managed to catch up to Sonic while he was running through Green Hill Zone. Trust me, it was no easy feat to get to him. He told me that he was stopping Eggman every once in a while. I guess that guy managed to find his way back… That was a bit interesting, in my eyes. Oh, and I managed to find those three others that helped us. I asked them about Dark and Blade just said, "Oh, he's in prison right now. That's about it."
"Dark's still in prison? Well serves him right!"
And last but not least… I went to visit Tamber on Clearno Island. He said that he's allowing people to come visit the place. He even gave people a tour on the whole island! I took a tour and he seemed quite surprised to see me! He asked me how you were doing, but I didn't really know. I think Tamber's growing into a nice, furry monster that everyone loves now! That's good for him!
"He's loved by many people! That's GREAT!"
While flying over Sunset Hill, I noticed a couple of people down there. I found out that Lord Crump and Grodus were still alive, along with Gemerl. I guess that makes them pretty tenacious baddies, doesn't it, Chopper? But they've mellowed a lot, just like Beldam and Mysterious have, and I don't expect more trouble. Plus, I hear Grodus is just a head, which really cuts down on mischief-making. For Gemerl… He told me he "just got over it." I wonder what made him mellow down anyways…
"Pbbbbbbbth! Grodus is just a head! That's hilarious! …But it kinda sucks that that's what's left of him. At least they've mellowed out a bit…"
Well, that's really all there is through my travels. Looks like there really isn't any mischief-making around here anymore. What a relief. But, still… I don't know if ALL of them have mellowed out. The only person I never saw was Tipral. I think it's quite a mystery whether he's around here or not. It makes me feel a bit scared if he even mellowed out! …But, he's not really a happy person, and I bet he's just going to leave us be, so I don't see much of a threat coming from him anyways. But, just to wrap this all up… I really enjoyed our adventure together and I hope we plan to go on another one.
'Till we meat again!
Your friend, Flyer.
"Well, I'm glad that everyone's doing just fine. It makes me feel good." Chopper closed his Mailbox SP and place it on the table as he walked over to the window to the beautiful dark sky.
He could see all of the beautiful stars outside that started to resemble his friends. They looked positively beautiful.
"…I hope to see you all in the future," Chopper smiled as he walked away from the window.
And that's the end of the story. Yes, it's sad that this story has come to an end... But, it DID take me eight months to write this whole thing up. Yeah, feeling left behind on this stuff is something I don't really enjoy that much, but, things happen, and this story.
Anyways, instead of thanking every single author (and anonymous person), I'll just say thank you to the people who read through all of this. No, not to the people who just skipped to here. Can't thank you people if you never made your way all the way here. And it's actually rather cool that I get over 10,000 hits when this ends. That's pretty nice!
Was this story not enough for you? Well... There IS a sequel called Super Paper Chopper (which is actually being edited, but you could read some of it...just don't go ahead, 'cause when I edit that later, it's probably NOT going to be the same). That's the third, and most likely the final story of the Paper Chopper series (I'm still not sure whether to make a 4th, with Paper Mario 3DS coming out and stuff).
But for now, I'll see you some other time, I suppose. I hope you enjoyed this story!
