Howdy, guys! The name's iheartgod175 (one of these days, I'm thinking of changing it to iheartgod365...), and welcome to my home page!
If my name didn't already tip you off to it, I'm a Christian who's working towards being an an author, animator, television producer and director (who's to say you can't do them all at once?!). While faith is very important to me and I do talk about Jesus, I'm not like most authors that aggressively force it down your throat; after all, my whole purpose in being here is to tell stories, not to preach to you guys. When I was younger and just starting out writing, I thought I had to do that all the time, but I've since learned that it doesn't make for very good storytelling. The ones that are more, shall I say, aggressive about my faith are Super Readers' Biggest Adventure and my Veggie Tales fics; those (especially the former) were my first forays into fanfiction. You have been warned.
That doesn't mean, however, that I won't slip in a few references to my faith here and there. I'm not afraid of being laughed at because I love God and I put Him in my works. I love everybody, including enemies and strangers, as He taught us. You'll notice during my introductory author's notes that I often thank God for the story itself. That's because I didn't come up with it on my own; He gave me the idea to write. So naturally, as everything, including my stories/story ideas, comes from Him, I need to show my gratitude by thanking the One who gave me this talent to touch others. It's also been four years since coming onto this site, and I can't praise Him enough for giving me the motivation to keep going.
Father, thank You for giving me the inspiration, the creativity and the wisdom to create these stories. Without You, I would have given up on this site, just given up writing in general, or I would have used my writing talent for the wrong reasons. I take this time, Father, to praise You for everything that you have done for me the past three years on this site, and to thank You for giving me this talent that I will use for Your kingdom. I thank You as well for loving me just as I am, and for being patient with me, even when I go off and do things my own way. I give You the thanks for these things, in Jesus' name, Amen.
As of August 6th, 2013, I'm going to be dedicating my fics to the memory of my grandmother, who passed away. She was a vibrant figure in our family life, and I loved going over to see her. She had a never give up attitude and always told me stories, as well as encouraging me to write my own. She will be loved and missed. She's gone but not forgotten.
My Writing Style:
I once asked someone what my niche was, and they said that it was appears to be action-packed stories. After going through my list of stories, I have to agree. Most of these action-packed stories of mine take place in lighthearted media, mainly kids' shows that I watch (most of them being guilty pleasures). People usually do this sort of thing anyway, but I think I differ from those people because my stories don't have adult content; a little innuendos here and there, but nothing heavy, mind you. These are kids shows we're talking about here.
Expect a lot of violence, drama, trauma, suspense, some psychological damage, tragedy, romance and (if I'm feeling in the mood to really spice things up), character death. For some reason, I can also write angst and hurt/comfort really well, too, and I'm getting better at writing romance stories, but I've been flexing my muscles in other things, such as humor, parody and such. I also have the habit of blending fantasy with realism. Just read Whispers in the Wind and you'll see what I'm talking about.
That said, my stories do tend to be pretty dark. My first fic, Super Readers' Biggest Adventure ,is obviously much more action packed and darker than its source material; all religion aside, it also has a lot of mythological and fantasy elements too. My first full-length Veggie Tales story, Hugs and Kisses, started out as a cute, fluffy Bob/Madame Blue fic, right up until Eddie Russell and his psycho boss Julian Maverick showed up at Big Idea for five chapters. When I get around to posting Future of Wuzzleburg, we have a time traveler coming to Wuzzleburg in order to kill the tyrannical ruler of the world in his time. And that's not even getting into stories like The Zula Patrol: Dreamscape Crusade (which is basically alternate reality meets Nightmare Fuel), The Heroes of Time (which has the H-B worlds being overrun by the Heartless), and Fiery Heart, Broken Soul, which is not only the first collaboration I've done on this site, but also my first mature fic--it's the longest and darkest out of the fics I've written thus far due to many reasons. And if the "Protector" arc of Blazin' Trails is of any indication, even some of my lighter stories aren't safe from the occasional dark twist.
Now, before you try to check me into the nearest asylum, let me reassure you that I'm not a sadist who likes to torture my favorite characters (a lot of authors do that, anyway); I just have a very vivid (and might I say, sometimes scary) imagination. And I don't write these dark stories all the time; I write feel-good stories and ones that run on The Power of Fluff (no, it's not a real term, but who cares XD) to lighten up the mood, so I'm not a complete sadist. I try to lighten things up in my serious ones by adding comedy and romantic fluff to the stories; the former's something that I'm getting better at, as I've learned to loosen up and just be random at times. I'm also trying my hand at writing good romance stories, since I like them but I find them somewhat challenging to write, as well as genres that I've always been partial to but never write, such as westerns, sci-fi, horror and crack fics; I'd really, really have to be random to write something like that. Since I've been obsessed with Westerns for the last year, I've been trying my hand at writing Westerns adventures. I'm quite proud of my first Western story, The Ghost of Huckleberry Hound, but I hope my next few stories will live up to the genre. And for more proof that I'm not a complete fiend, there are happy endings in my stories, or at least ones that have to be worked for. The best endings that I've written, in my opinion, are the endings for Acceptance, Hugs and Kisses and Best Friends Forever-Redone. In some stories, such as The Ghost of Huckleberry Hound, Tea for Two or Whispers in the Wind, it's more bittersweet due to the character deaths in those stories.
While I mostly stick to canon timelines for stories, I like to mix it up and throw together certain canons, or write a story that has nothing to do with canon at all. Most of my stories dabble in alternate universes that I created, and said universes tend to be pretty big. If the show in question doesn't have an established timeline, then I make one up and add to it with my own story, all the while referencing those episodes. Then there are the stories that are AUs to an AU that I made. Yeah, it's kind of weird. Oh, and character development. That's also a big one. The point of fanfiction is to take the characters beyond the boundaries of the TV/movie/games and show different sides of them that the shows don't explore. Even when I show the characters going through a whole lot of stuff, I do my best to keep them true to their core, though like every writer, I have certain headcanons concerning them. I rarely go the OOC route unless I really want to (as seen by Whispers in the Wind), and normally there has to be a very good reason as to why they'd act like that in the story.
A lot of people love to praise me for my writing, especially when it comes to descriptions, grammar and word choice. I'm very flattered, but let me be humble here: I'm pretty much an amateur compared to other writers on this site, especially FlutterChaos, BHS and PurpleProse-SB, authors of three of my favorite stories: Magical Pony Lyrical Twilight A's , Shattered Skies and Lyrical Nanoha: Time Destruction, which have awesome twists, fight scenes and descriptions that inspired some of my stories, like The Zula Patrol: Dreamscape Crusade, The Heroes of Time and Sodor Magic Crusaders. I'm humbled and touched that many people say my writing keeps them glued to the screen, and I have to agree, but every writer's open to improvement. Of course, I'm still learning about the writing process, but I'm happy to say that I'm open to critique and willing to fix my mistakes. Even so, for those of you who love my writing style, thanks! It really means a lot :)
As for chapter uploads, it follows a pattern: when I first start the story, I'm really motivated and I start writing a whole bunch of chapters, snippets for later parts of the story and what not. Then somewhere along the line, writer's block, other interests and real life come in demanding my time, forcing me to put stories on hiatus. And since I'm in school, I can't work on my stories as often as I used to before. I also have a bad habit of starting new stories whenever I'm inspired and then abandoning old ones/putting them on hiatus. But, I'm doing better to limit myself to only a few stories at a time; this way, no story goes unfinished. However, please don't rush me or badger me about working on stories I haven't worked on in a long time. This isn't directed towards specific people or anything; I prefer to work on stories (or rather, anything really) at my own pace, and I value quality over quantity. I'd rather have readers get good chapters that I took my time on rather than bad chapters that were rushed because of the whole "can't keep my public waiting" thing--something that I have done in the past, which I'm not proud of. I also care about my readers, making sure to reply to any reviews I receive. Review counts are great, but the reviews themselves are what I care about, because I want to talk to the people about my story. So if you review my work, I can guarantee that you'll get a PM from me. That's the reason why guest reviews annoy me sometimes, because then I can't respond to them.
I also love to read other authors' stories and review, and I admit, I get inspired by a lot of authors on here. I just make sure I credit the person who inspired me, and then make it different from theirs so that I'm not stealing anything. Just to let you know, I write for a lot of stuff. I never write for the same thing all the time, as my interests tend to go from one thing to the next. One moment I'll be in Super Why, the next I'll be into TTTE, and the next I'll be into Hanna-Barbera. So if a story doesn't get updated for a while, it just means I haven't had any real interest in it as of yet, but just know that I will get back to it as soon as I possibly can!
IMPORTANT NOTE: Regarding requests, I only take requests from close friends on Fanfiction, which in itself makes about...six or seven people, I believe. I know I said before that I don't mind working on requests, but I have a large amount of projects that I'm working on myself, as well as several fanfics in the works with several different people--three of which are full-out stories. And due to my unpredictable writing schedule, I'm not really prepped to take on even more requests. Sorry, guys :(

Oh, and in other news: Vulaan Kulaas and I are both on TV Tropes now! Right now, the page is undergoing some major reconstruction so I can fit both of our stories on there, but yeah, these are the tropes that appear in our fics. I'm still working on Vulaan Kulaas' and cleaning up some things on my page, so expect the descriptions for those to change soon.
Here's the link: http:// tvtropes.org /pmwiki /pmwiki.php /Tropers /Iheartgod175 . But beware: some of the tropes listed may contain spoilers for events that have not happened in the story yet. As in, you get to know these things BEFORE they get posted. Read at your own risk!

To-do List (Bold means complete)
Don't worry, guys. I'm still alive and writing. It's just that school's been kicking me in the pants lately. I'm still writing stories and working on chapters for stories that I haven't worked on in a long, LONG time, but with what's been going on, it's coming along rather slowly. I can't guarantee when I'll have those updates up, but just know that I have been working on the stories when I'm not working on my schoolwork.
My Odin Sphere fic, "Heavenly Peace", is pretty much on hiatus. My plan was to finish it before Valentine's Day, but that didn't happen--all of my Valentine's Day things were posted AFTER Valentine's Day, though, and I haven't really been doing anything in regards to Odin Sphere in months. However, I would like it if you'd read that fic, and I would also enjoy it if you'd check out the first chapter of my Quick Draw McGraw/Ricochet Rabbit crossover, "Best in the West".
Regarding "Blazin' Trails", I've got multiple chapters in the works for that story. A couple of them are the ones I was working on back in the summer, but several of them are new. I'm working on a few special events, including the one that I promised last time, but since that's going to take a while, I figured I might as well give you some other shorts instead. And since there are plenty of tales to write about my favorite sheriff and deputy duo, there's no need to worry about this going into hiatus. I'm doing my best to take a break from it to update my other stuff, though it's hard.
Chapter two of "I'll Never Abandon You", a request for my friend and fellow FF.Net author, Vulaan Kulaas, is coming along nicely. I won't tell you what happens, since there are supposed to be a lot of surprises. :D
On the topic of forgotten stories, my next "forgotten" story will either be "The Zula Patrol: Dreamscape Crusade" or "Fiery Heart, Broken Soul" since I've been working on both of them. I'm thinking it may be the former moreso than the latter since I'm nearly finished with chapter 10, but I won't count Scarlet out yet :D
"Sodor Magic Crusaders" is also coming along smoothly, since I've been watching StrikerS alongside my brother. I don't know when I'll post that chapter, but I don't think it'll be as long as the chapter I've posted for "The Heroes of Time".
Good news for you Sheriff Callie fans--I've resumed working on the fifth chapter of "You've Got My Attention". Even better, that chapter's almost finished, so it may be one of the first stories aside from "Blazin' Trails" that I'll be updating.
I will get back to finishing "If Liking You Is Wrong & Other Stories". The original draft of the second chapter's stuck on my other computer, which currently has a dead battery, so I'll have to start that over from scratch. *sigh*
Regarding "Have Guitar, Will Travel" and "Mirror, Mirror", I haven't forgotten those, either; I've been going back and adding a few more scenes to the latter, and I'm sort of in the mood to write more adventures featuring Quick Draw (mostly due to that crossover). I'll be coming back to finish HG, WT at some point in time, since the rewrite of chapter 4 is coming along nicely. I'm still outlining my next major H-B project, "Kicked Into High Gear", while "The Knights of Hanabera" is kind of in development heck/indefinite hiatus due to me replaying Odin Sphere.
*whew* Got through all that! And of course, here's the other news I have (mostly unchanged from my previous updates):
One of my friends, Workhorsecommentator, has put up a poll on his account. He's writing his first fanfic for the MLP:FiM fandom, which is a national anthem for Equestria, and he has a question regarding how to refer to it. I've voted already, so if you have the time, please take the time to vote on his poll!
In Hanna-Barbera news: I'm still writing a lot of Hanna-Barbera fics, but it's just getting around to posting them that's the problem. There are still those one-shots I'm thinking of writing (the Hokey Wolf fic, that AU to "The Ghost of Huckleberry Hound", a couple of T.C./Trixie and HuckleFlower fics, etc.), but there are several I'm going to save until next year.
Due to rewatching MGLN over again, I do have inspiration to write a Nanoha story. Well, more like I have a lot of ideas: some friendship fluff, some romance, some AUs and some epic adventures. And due to the fact that I've been rewatching the Symphogear series, I may be working on a story sooner or later for that, too. As I recently babbled about on Tumblr, I've had a lot of ideas for Odin Sphere, too, possibly one that takes place in the past. I wrote out a small drabble for a story that I might post sooner or later.
"Thingamabob: Origins" is still going to be my next major VeggieTales project, but since Acadia Arneson and I have been really busy lately, it's still on hold. I worked on some more of it this weekend, but I'm not sure how long it's going to be or when we're going to post it. I'm thinking of creating an outline for it as well. Until then, my next few Veggie Tales works may be those one-shots that take place after "Here For A Reason" and "No Laughing Matter", which are named below in the story timelines section of my profile.
"The Ferret Who Knew Too Much" will get the Remastered treatment soon; when I feel up to it, I'll be taking it down so I can repost the revised one. I do like the story, but I just realized that my attempt at writing a 'serious suspense story' was filled with TOO many twists one chapter after the next, and it started to get repetitive and boring. It taught me one thing, though: when writing a mystery, you have to lead your audience on slowly and build up the evidence, not just throw all the clues out at once. Not sure when the rewrite will be out, though I do have some ideas for what the rewrite will be about. And as for the sequel, I have no idea when that'll be out, but I will not write it until The Ferret Who Knew Too Much is rewritten.
I looked at the polls recently, and it seems like everyone really wants to see Super Mario: The Darkside Chronicles, with the votes beating out that of Very Veggie Romance. Several more of you voted for some of my other ideas, including my ideas for Count Duckula! Sadly, though, Super Mario is pretty much in development heck, since I've got too many stories on my plate.
Alright, onto the profile! I must warn you, it's going to be a long trip. If you want to get straight to my stories, go ahead and scroll down. If you wanna stick around, then be my guest!
iheartgod175's (extremely long) Profile
Age: Ain't nothin' but a number :)
Occupation: Student (currently acquiring a Web and Graphic Design Certificate)
Personality: I'm pretty quiet around people in general, though nowadays I'm more inclined to start up a conversation than before; actually, it used to be the other way around. I'll talk up a storm about things I like--as well as rant about things I hate. For the most part, I'm amiable and ready to help out if needed, and I'll make sure I get the job done right, no matter how long it takes. It takes a very long time for me to get mad, but if you really decide to make me angry I'll have some choice words for you (no swearing, but a putdown). I also joke around a bit, and I have a dry sense of humor.
Religion: Christian- or to be more specific, Judeo-Christian (Workhorsecommentator thought I was Catholic, so I figured I'd clear that up.). It's the reason my pen name is iheartgod. That means you can expect no swearing or explicit sexual material in my stories. Dark stuff, of course, but no swearing (except for the occasional "what the heck?", "Crap!" and Curses Cut Short/characters getting called out on attempting to swear), sex or characters doing drugs/alcohol; I do make exceptions when it's part of the story, and even then I don't go into loads of detail. I also tread very carefully when it comes to magic and demonic entities, such as in Mirror, Mirror and Sodor Magic Crusaders; as much as I love fantasy and magic attacks, I'm not going to study it to the point where people think I'm studying witchcraft. Also, expect prayers at the beginning of the stories that I write sometimes, and references to my faith. In addition, I am a huge supporter of Israel and the Jewish people, and I celebrate the Jewish holidays.
Username Origin: I'd always been lurking around Fanfiction before I got an account, and I was always trying to come up with a username. At first I would've used a Japanese name, but since I got saved around 2010-2011, I figured my name would have something to do with God. I came up with the "iheartgod" part, thinking that it sounded kind of cute. The numbers I originally chose were 365, actually, but then I changed it to 17, and then 175. Don't ask where that number came from, but it stuck. From then on, that's been my username; my joke with it is that I only love God 175 days out of the year =P
Major Inspirations: Hanna-Barbera, Pixar Animation, Naoko Takeuchi, Kagami Yoshimizu (creator of Lucky Star), Toei Animation, Satoru Iwata, Shigeru Miyamoto, BHS (check out his work, it's awesome!), Vulaan Kulaas (had to give a little shout out to my friends :D)

Joe, VeggieTales, Count Duckula, Jem (that show is truly, truly, truly outrageous!), My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic , The Smurfs AND The Snorks, We Bare Bears, The Amazing World of Gumball, Star Darlings, Steven Universe
I actually like a lot of 80's cartoons, and how they entertained you while teaching morals. This is one of the reasons I'm going to own my own animation company: to bring back 80's style cartoons and value. Any of you who support this, repost this on your account.

There's this DJ on YouTube named DJ Sonicfreak, as well as the producers Raisi K. (username: RaisiM122), Natsu Fuji and StuntinSteveAustin.

Strongest Subjects: History, Science, English, Art (I'm working towards becoming an anime artist)
Weakest Subjects: Math (I'm definitely improving on it, though...)
Strong Writing Points: Description of action scenes, scenes, and narrative in general (I'm working on how to describe background without sounding repetitive)
Weak Writing Points: Describing clothing (I really have to get into different types of clothing so I can overcome this one), romantic scenes (since I'm don't have a boyfriend yet)
Likes to Read: Just about everything, but in order: Crossover, Adventure, Fantasy, Angst, Friendship, Hurt/Comfort, Romance (Occasionally yaoi/yuri, but not outright smut. I like a little steam in my romances, but I draw the line at very steamy romance, if you catch my drift.)
Hates to Read: Character/pairing bashing fics, stories with bad grammar, stories lumped into one paragraph
Doesn't Mind, but Doesn't Usually Read: Yaoi/yuri fics (You'll notice that I have a few fics under my favorites list that do have yaoi or yuri in it. I'm pretty neutral to those pairings, and there are some that I can see that'll work, but most of the time I read those stories for the plot, not so much the pairing. I don't hate those pairings or the people that ship them, and I respect their pairing choices, but I just don't have any that I ship, and I don't feel very comfortable writing either yuri or yaoi.), crack fics (sometimes I read them for the laughs, but some of them just have the weirdest material in them.)
Best at Writing: Angst, Adventure, Fantasy, Hurt/Comfort, Tragedy, Romance (most of the time; I try not to rush the romance and let it develop on its own.), Friendship and Parody
Needs to Work on Writing: Humor, Sci-Fi, Horror, Supernatural, Crossover and Western, as well as gory scenes (I guess I'm not cut out to write them much...)
Personal Favorite Stories: Hugs and Kisses, Fiery Heart, Broken Soul, The Ghost of Huckleberry Hound, Have Guitar, Will Travel, Acceptance: The Story of the Duck Hunt Duo, Redemption: The Story of the Last R.O.B., The Return of the Phantom Empire, Impromptu Date, No Pet Policy, Blazin' Trails
OTPs: Yes, I am a shipper at heart. I've actually been shipping before I knew what "shipping" meant. There might be a few that I made up, while others are mostly hinted in canon.
Multo/Zeeter- From The Zula Patrol. The first couple I shipped before I knew what "shipping" meant. I came up with the idea after deciding that Bula would go well with my OC, Bonnie. I didn't see it much at first, but after watching the show, I came up with a few theories with how Multo and Zeeter would get together. In the first few stories I started writing, it was Zeeter who had the crush on Multo and he was oblivious/annoyed/slightly interested. Nowadays, it's Multo who's in love with her, but she's oblivious/annoyed/shocked at this. In my older and newer stories, the two of them got married and had a daughter together. Bula/Zeeter is also a fine ship, and as of late I've been doing that couple as well...but Multo/Zeeter will always be my favorite. :)
Manny/Kelly-From Handy Manny. If the entire fanbase, including the freakin' target audience, can see that you like each other and you can't, that's a problem.
Luigi/Daisy, Mario/Peach- Of course from the Mario series! Luigi and Daisy are so cute together! Mario/Peach is so obvious that it's a wonder Nintendo didn't have them get married yet.
Buzz/Jessie, Woody/Bo- From Toy Story. I really, really like Buzz/Jessie more than Woody/Bo, but it made me a little sad when Bo Peep didn't show up in Toy Story 3.
Schmendrick/Molly- From The Last Unicorn. Even if you weren't a shipper, there are several teasing moments in the movie that shows that Molly (possibly) likes Schmendrick.
Coraline/Wybie- From Coraline. This one could be possible.
Ben/Abigail- From National Treasure. They are cute together, but sometimes Abigail gets on my nerves.
Arthur/Francine, Jenna/George- From the television show Arthur. A/F gets teased so much, it's even hinted that they'll get married in the future. I really think Jenna/George would be cute.
Becky/Tobey- From WordGirl. I support Becky/Tobey way more than Becky/Scoops, but if I wrote a story with both couples, I might do a love triangle. In which Becky/Tobey would be the outcome :D
WALL-E/EVE- From WALL-E, of course. The most adorable couple ever!
Bernard/Bianca- From The Rescuers. The second cutest couple ever, and always manages to set me off on a big ball of squee!
Van/Hitomi-From The Vision of Escaflowne. I've always liked them more than Allen/Hitomi.
Ash/Misty, Ash/May, May/Drew, Jessie/James-From Pokémon. I've always thought Ash/Misty was cute, and I've got a little soft spot for Ash/May as well, but I also really like May/Drew. Oh, and I'm an unabashed Rocketshipper.
Naoto/Ichigo,Johnny Bepp/Orihime-From Aikatsu! The latter is one I ship a bit more than the former, but I find Naoto/Ichigo just as cute.
Thomas/Emily, Gordon/Molly, James/Molly- From Thomas the Tank Engine. I can kind of see Thomas/Emily happening since there are a few hints in canon. James/Molly is possible, even though they don't really interact in the show. Gordon/Molly came about when I was playing Thomas with my brothers, and my brother had Gordon have a crush on Molly.
Bob/Madame Blueberry, Larry/Petunia, Archie/Lovey- From VeggieTales. I became a Bob/Madame Blue shipper after reading Comment person's 'Timely Love Stories', which has hints of that pairing in it. Larry/Petunia is pretty obvious, and I love Archie, so him and Lovey being paired up was no question. The only that I do when I write Archie/Lovey (or "Archilove") is portray them as old friends who become romantically involved, rather than husband and wife off the bat. That's just my opinion. At the moment, though, Bob/Madame Blue (or as I like to call them, "BoBerry") is my current OTP for the show, if Hugs and Kisses is any indication of that.
Yuuno/Material-S, Chrono/Amy, Erio/Caro- From Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha. My original pair was Yuunoha, but I think Material-S would be a good match for Yuuno-kun; the second handheld game plays up this by having her call him "Master" and stuff. It'd be cool to see if the new INNOCENT manga explores this possibility; I would definitely read the manga after that. Chrono/Amy has been an OTP of mine since the first two seasons; I did ship a little bit of Chrono/Fate until the end of A's. And Erio and Caro are too adorable for words :D
Whyatt/Red- From Super Why. My original pairing for this show was Whyatt/Princess Pea, but after really sitting down and thinking about it, I realized that Whyatt and Red are more compatible. Subtle hints of the ship are seen in my fanfic Super Readers' Biggest Adventure.
Robin/Starfire, Beast Boy/Raven-From the original Teen Titans. I mostly like Go!, but what I don't like is how they treat the Robin/Starfire relationship in that one.
Walden/Widget, Wubbzy/Daizy, Chef Fritz/Madame Zabinga, Huggy/Buggy- All of these pairings are from Wubbzy. Walden/Widget to me would be more one-sided, while I can definitely see Wubbzy/Daizy happening. Madame Zabinga/Chef Fritz would be possible only if the two have one of those "slap-slap-kiss" relationships, and Huggy/Buggy would work if they were older.
Aira/Shou, Hibiki/Rizumu, Mion/Wataru- From Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream. Aira/Shou is pretty obvious, but Rizumu/Hibiki is probably my favorite couple from the show. It's so funny for the normally energetic Rizumu to get all shy around Hibiki. The main reason I support Mion/Wataru is because I feel so bad for Wataru.
Igor/Nanny- From Count Duckula. Although it seems a little far-fetched, I have to blame Steffie1 for this one. Igor always calls Nanny stupid and can't stand her most of the time, but I think that he *somewhat* cares for her, even if he won't show it. Steffie1's fic Potion Commotion pretty much got me into the idea...
Cheese Sandwich/Pinkie Pie (CheesePie), Shining Armor/Cadance- From My Little Pony: FiM. I decided to see if anybody started shipping Cheese and Pinkie, and sure enough, I found a whole bunch of adorable, heartbreaking stories. I hope to put up a story about them on FimFiction soon...
Huck/Desert Flower-From Hanna-Barbera's "The Good, the Bad and Huckleberry Hound". I've only heard of Desert Flower once, due to SuperAlex64's stories, and I thought they were cute, even though I've never heard of her before. Then I saw the movie itself, and they immediately became my new ship. These two just mesh together perfectly :D Most of my fics that focus on these two have taken place in the movie universe, but I have some AU ideas in mind.
Top Cat/Trixie-From Top Cat: The Movie. I did think they were kind of cute before, but never really paid much attention to them after that. Ever since I went on tumblr searching for some prompts I could use for BoBerry, I fell back in love with these two. In my stories, the two banter at first, but you can't deny the chemistry between them; normally, it's Trixie who likes T.C. first, but she thinks that nobody would like her, only for T.C. to prove her wrong. Other times, both of them like each other, but they're caught up in their banter to realize that. Stories focusing on them will mostly be alternate universe.
Gwendolyn/Oswald, Ingway/Mercedes, Cornelius/Velvet-From Odin Sphere. This is probably the only game where I like all the ships instead of just one. Gwendolyn/Oswald is currently top position, with Ingway/Mercedes being second and Cornelius/Velvet kind of hanging off to the back. Don't get me wrong, they're cute; I just happen to really like Gwendolyn/Oswald.
Fletch/Tyne- From Chuggington. It's kind of easy to see their playful bickering as something to hide their feelings...that or I guess I've been wearing shipping goggles for way too long...
Callie/Peck-From Sheriff Callie's Wild West. Blame the dA artists on this one; I was just looking for pictures of Peck and some Callie/Peck pics came up...and then I ended up looking around for more pictures of them because I ended up thinking they were cute.
Steven/Connie-From Steven Universe, of course. It can go both ways, though...
Marlin/Dory-Of course, from Finding Nemo. I never considered these two an actual possibility until a friend of mine (who kind of got back into Finding Nemo) told me about it. I can see it going both ways, though (hence why I've listed this pair under BroTP as well), but just imagining the highstrung Marlin falling for the free-spirited Dory is pretty adorable.
BroTPs: My favorite friendship pairs :3
Nanoha and Fate, Nanoha and Vita, Fate and Signum-Yeah, the Nanoha fandom will probably have my head for these, but ever since I've watched the entire series (including ViVid), I've come to see Nanoha and Fate as this. I've never been entirely comfortable with the whole shipping angle, anyway. Nanoha's interactions with Vita, especially in the second movie, were so cute (then again, Vita was adorable in that movie), so I can definitely see them as being an odd pair of best friends. And of course, there's Fate and Signum; the pairing itself tends to weird me out.
Tsubasa and Maria, Maria and Kanade, Hibiki and Chris- From Senki Zesshou Symphogear. I've seen some cool artwork of Maria and Kanade interacting that kind of warmed me up to the idea. And Hibiki's interactions with Chris are always funny and adorable.
Madoka and Mami, Kyoko and Sayaka, Madoka and Homura-From Puella Magi Madoka Magica. I love Mami's big sister nature towards Madoka, and Kyoko and Sayaka's friendship is always amusing to watch. And of course, Madoka's interactions with Homura were adorable.
Peridot and Steven, Amethyst and Peridot, Steven and Connie-From Steven Universe.
Marlin and Dory, Woody and Buzz, Lightning and Mater-From Pixar, of course.
Peck and Toby-From Sheriff Callie's Wild West.
Konata and Kagami, Yutaka and Minami, Misao and Ayano-From Lucky Star. I can understand the writer playing up the yuri subtext as a way of drawing in readers, but I never saw any of these three pairs as anything more than that. Konata and Kagami make me laugh.
Bob and Larry, Archie and Larry, Pa Grape and Mr. Lunt-From VeggieTales. These three are pretty much common in most of my VeggieTales fics.
Top Cat and Huck, T.C. and Officer Dibble, Yogi and Huck, Huck and Snagglepuss, Quick Draw and Baba Looey, Snooper and Blabber, Shaggy and Scooby, Ricochet and Droop-a-Long-From Hanna-Barbera. You'd be surprised to see T.C. and Huck as first on this list, since they hardly interact, but in most of my stories featuring HuckleFlower or T.C./Trixie, these two are usually the best of bros. I mentioned up top that I like Dibble and T.C.'s odd friendship, and I also like Huck and Yogi's friendship (which was even seen in the cartoons), as well as Huck and Snagglepuss' friendship (some of which can be seen in The Heroes of Time). Other odd friendship pairs that I like include Quick Draw and Baba Looey (which you can see in Have Guitar, Will Travel), Snooper and Blabber and Ricochet Rabbit and Droop-a-Long (I mean, I wrote an entire collection about it!).
Ichigo and Aoi, Ringo and Orihime-From Aikatsu!
Kirby and Meta-Knight-From Kirby, of course. Reading Vulaan Kulaas' stories got me into the idea, and I love how she portrays them in a father-son relationship.
Ash and Pikachu-From Pokemon. True best friends to the end :D
Layton and Luke-From Professor Layton. I love the mentor-student relationship between them :D
Rarity and Rainbow Dash, Applejack and Rarity, Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie-From My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
NoTPs: Yes, even someone like me has pairings that I don't like...
MadoHomu (Madoka/Homura)-This is partly due to the BroTP factor, but another factor is because of Homura's obsessive and possessive nature towards Madoka in the original series. And possessive and obsessive relationships are a huge turn-off factor for me, so...yeah, you can see why I don't like this one.
NanoFate-Again, partly due to the BroTP factor, but also because I feel that it's overexposed and it feels like it's being shoved in my face everywhere I go. I actually used to be pretty neutral towards NanoFate until a friend of mine started being harassed for writing Yuunoha stories, and I encountered stories where one of my favorite characters, Yuuno, was being treated like dirt in about 90% of them.
Becky/Scoops, Becky/Two-Brains-From WordGirl. I like Scoops as a character, but I don't see any chemistry between him and Becky. And Becky/Two-Brains doesn't work at all because the age difference...
Layton/Luke, Layton/Flora-From Professor Layton. This one usually brings out a lot of disgust in me, and it's not because it's yaoi. It's Layton in a relationship with an eleven-year old boy, for crying out loud. I've heard that people have also shipped Layton with Flora, the girl that he adores like a daughter...*shudders* I know that Layton is a shipping bicycle, but COME ON, people.
Ash/Pikachu-With the possible exception of Chikorita/Bayleef, I usually don't ship Ash with any of his Pokemon, but this one is just flat-out weird.
Allen/Hitomi-From The Vision of Escaflowne.
Lucas/Maya-From Girl Meets World. It may be because I love Lucas/Riley, but I don't really see too much chemistry between the two of them. As the episode "Girl Meets Ski Lodge" showed, Lucas and Maya probably would be at each other's throats, what with Maya's rule-breaking and Lucas trying to be the noble one.
Robin/Starfire (Teen Titans Go!)-Yeah, this isn't too much of a surprise. Aside from Robin being overly obsessed with Star, there are episodes where she takes advantage of his feelings and uses them to humiliate him; those episodes were not cool.
Edmund/Lucy-From The Chronicles of Narnia. I don't like any of the Pevensie siblings being shipped with each other, but this one in particular makes my skin crawl. I can see people shipping the actors, but the characters? Seriously?
Top Cat:"Gentlemen, the reason you won't be seeing Kermillian's comet is because it's not coming over the earth."
Quick Draw:"Well, there goes our stargazing party!"
Top Cat: "According to my readings, the comet's heading directly into the earth, and if it crashes, it will shatter it into millions of pieces!"
Huck: "Gosh. I reckon we'll have to cancel bowling night next Tuesday, Quick Draw!"
Top Cat, Quick Draw and Huck from "Merlin's Book of Magic"-Yogi's Treasure Hunt
Hardy: "We should probably quit while we're still ahead."
Lippy (after dodging another sword swing from the sultan): "I say we should get out of here while we still HAVE a head!"
-Lippy and Hardy from "A Thousand Arabian Frights"
"I like that Quicks Draw. He's got a head for figures. All zeros."
-Baba Looey on Quick Draw's thinking skills.
"You know somethin'? They don't make dogs like they used to."
-Huckleberry Hound (after a dog tricks him out of his steak)
Starscream (after Shockwave shoots him in the back): "You fool! We're partners!"
Shockwave: "I serve only Megatron!" (attempts to shoot Starscream, but misses)
Starscream (shoots Shockwave): "Then go back to Earth, and die with Megatron!"
-Starscream and Shockwave from the G1 Transformers episode, "Revenge of Bruticus".
Dead End: "If we give up our Energon, we're doomed."
Breakdown: "Oh, but if we don't, we're doomed, too!"
Dead End (sighing): "Face it. We're doomed."
-Dead End and Breakdown from the G1 Transformers episode, "Five Faces of Darkness, Part 1"
Megatron: "You're either lying, or you're stupid!"
Starscream: "I'm stupid! I'm stupid!"
-Megatron and Starscream from "Triple Takeover"
Starscream: "Megatron is a wimp!"
Devastator: "So is Starscream!"
Starscream: "Yes, but I'm fast!" (transforms and takes off)
-Starscream and Devastator from "Triple Takeover"
Bumblebee: "But what about Spike?"
Optimus Prime: "He's unimportant!"
-Bumblebee and Optimus from "A Prime Problem" (Of course, that was actually Megatron-as-Optimus when he said that...still hilarious, though)
Favorite Story Quotes
"I...had a nightmare...poyo. It was when we were fighting...him, and he said those awful things to me. I-I can't believe we helped him, and he stabbed us in the back! Maybe I shouldn't be such a fool..."
"No, don't you finish that sentence, Kirby. I'd rather you be naive, innocent and have a good heart than to become a monster. Never allow the actions of a villain to tempt you into changing into something your not, or to make you think that you have to because you're too much of a hero."
-Kirby and Meta Knight from Vulaan Kulaas' fic "Forgiveness"
"Wow, it sure is a peaceful morning, huh, Squid?"
"It was, until you started talking again."
-SpongeBob and Squidward from Vulaan Kulaas' SpongeBob fic, "Clear Surface, Dark Waters"
"You...you nincompoop! Why did you do this?!"
"Y-You're my friend, Squid...I couldn't...stand there and let something happen to you."
-Squidward and SpongeBob from "Clear Surface, Dark Waters"
"Good morning, Kirby. Did you sleep well after...last night?"
"When I heard you yelling at your dark self, you were saying a lot of bad words. (giggles)"
"Yes, I did...but I better not hear you repeat any of them."
-Meta-Knight and Kirby from Vulaan Kulaas' Kirby fic "Helpless Warrior, Prism Nightmare"
"Honestly, can't you guys play without trying to knock each other's brains out?"
"Yeah, yeah...I hear you, Queen Nag...I swear, you and Meta Knight would be a good couple when you get old enough to date."
-Tiff and Tuff from VK's Kirby fic "Vengeful Warrior, Protective Father"
"I could always have popularity and fame like you...but I couldn't have another friend like you. You may be better than me in anythin', but I'd take a bullet for ya 'cause you're my best friend, and the only one I've got."
-Droop-a-Long from "Blazin' Trails" chapter 8: Taking the Bullet
"You know, there was a person who told me that no one's perfect. We all make mistakes, but we've just gotta learn from 'em and move on, not beat ourselves up over 'em."
"And who told you that?"
"You did, Mr. Ricochet, when you appointed me to be your deputy."
-Ricochet Rabbit and Droop-a-Long from "Blazin' Trails" chapter 1: No One's Perfect
"I never thought I'd run faster than Ricochet Rabbit."
"...You got lucky 'cause you had a head start."
-Droop-a-Long and Ricochet from "Blazin' Trails" chapter 5: Rapid Romance
Inspired by the TV Tropes Fan Fic Recommendations page, here are some of the fanfics I highly recommend reading! I'll add more as I edit this page. Some fics are from the same author, so don't get too annoyed if you notice the same author's name popping up throughout the list.
Kirby series (I don't really play the games...but that doesn't stop me from reading these stories!)
This fic, written by my friend Vulaan Kulaas, is a tragic what-if ending to Kirby's Return to Dream Land. Like the other two fics she's written, it features Meta-Knight and Kirby in a father-son relationship, which only makes the story even more tragic. If you like alternate endings or tragedy, you'll enjoy this fic!
Another fic by Vulaan Kulaas, this fic takes place in Kirby's Return to Dream Land, but focuses on Kirby trying to understand Magolor's betrayal and if he can forgive him. It's a really sweet fic that once again shows Meta Knight's soft side.
This is Vulaan Kulaas' first story, and unlike the two above, it takes place in the anime-verse. I don't want to give away too much of the story, but it nicely shows how much Kirby looks up to Meta Knight, as well as the fatherly attitude Meta Knight has towards Kirby.
This fic takes place in Kirby's Epic Yarn. In this, Meta Knight's brainwashed by Yin-Yarn to fight his own adopted son, and Kirby must find the strength to get through to Meta Knight. Everything about it is great: the battle scene, the emotional anguish that both Kirby and Meta Knight and Kirby go through, and Meta-Knight's encouragement at the end...it's a really good fic that starts out a bit dark, but eventually it gets light and fluffy at the end.
This fic takes place during the anime, and introduces an old threat that not only seeks to give Kirby a challenge, but to take away the thing that Meta Knight holds dear to him. It's a multi-chapter fic that's still in progress, but it's good so far!
This fic takes place at the end of Kirby and the Amazing Mirror. This story is great, but in order to learn why it's so great, you'll have to read it yourself; this is one of the few stories that I won't give spoilers to!
This fic, written by Vulaan Kulaas, was originally a one-shot in the same way that Blazin' Trails was. This fic is filled with really sweet family bonding moments between Meta Knight, Jecra, Kirby and Garlude, and as a bonus, you get Meta-Knight/Garlude, plus a much warmer Meta-Knight (which is always adorable). Personally, I have to catch up on it, as well as some other fanfics...but from what I've read so far, it's great!
Written by SteffieMusings (formerly Steffie1), this fic got me into the idea of Igor/Nanny in the first place; I also recommended this on Count Duckula's actual FanFic Recs page! Long story short, Accidental Innuendos and Hilarity Ensues.
This one's written by SuperAlex64, who's got a bunch of really cool Hanna-Barbera fanfics. This one focuses on Augie Daddy and Doggie Daddy, and it provides a very interesting reason as to why Doggie's a single parent...but I won't spoil it for you!
This fic's written by my good pal Vulaan Kulaas, who wrote this adorable Ricochet Rabbit and Droop-a-Long fic for my birthday (and even contained a few references to my story, Blazin' Trails!). It was full of cute friendship fluff, some drama...and of course, adorable Droop-a-Long :D She's currently expanded the story to a three-shot, and already has part two up, which is a little more dramatic...but I won't tell you what happens in it for the sake of spoilers!
Another fic written by SupeAlex64, this one set in the Yo Yogi! universe. I won't really delve into the plot, since I'd spoil it...but let's just put it this way: angry Huckleberry Hound is best Huckleberry Hound.
This is another fic written by Vulaan Kulaas, and it's one of my absolute favorite fics. I love stories where Squidward cares for SpongeBob, and this story delivered that and more (as well as some Spandy as well :D). Seriously, go and read it!
This fic's written by Vulaan Kulaas (noticing a pattern here?) and is for the Glover fandom. For those of you who don't know what that game is (and I'm just saying this off of the top of my head here), it's a very underrated N64 game with some pretty interesting controls. This story tells the story of Glover and his brother, Cross-Stitch, and how Glover tries to save his brother despite not being as strong or as tough as his older brother is. It's only one chapter thus far, but Vulaan would like some feedback on the story, so let her know what you think of it!
I completely forgot to add one of my favorite Vulaan Kulaas fics on this list! Taking place during Mario and Luigi: Paper Jam, this story really does show off more of Bowser's character, showing that despite all his vileness, he does care for his son, Bowser Jr. Needless to say, messing with his son is a bad, BAD idea...
This fic, written by Epsilon Zeta, is one of my favorites for multiple reasons. Maybe it's because it has one of my favorite characters, Yuuno Scrya, as the main character. Or because it also has the Materials in it, and actually gives them sufficient character development. Or maybe it's because all three of them end up being ship teased with Yuuno, with Yuuno/Material-D coming in second behind Yuuno/Material-S, my main OTP. Or because of the comedic moments, which includes taking potshots at the more rabid parts of the fandom. Either way, I love it. Be warned, though: it hasn't been updated in three years, so I don't know for sure if the author is busy or if the fic is dead...
Complete Projects (and one-shots)
You Drive Me Up the Wall: Thundercats fanfic focusing on Snarf and Snarfer, and takes place during the '85 cartoon. Snarf should really learn to watch what he says around Snarfer, especially with idioms such as "You drive me up the wall". Because then, something along the lines of this happens. This is a one-shot, so don't expect anymore chapters!
Best Friends Forever: Veggie Tales fanfic focusing on Bob and Larry, and shows the differences between simple and best friends. This collection of six shorts takes a look into the friendship of Bob and Larry, and shows the difference between simple and best friends. I did this as a one-shot, but may add some more to it.
Unexpected Surprise: My first fanfic for Aikatsu!, seen below. Johnny Bepp, renowned dance teacher at Starlight Academy, didn’t expect for anyone to give him any chocolates for Valentine’s Day. Therefore, it came as a huge shock when she did. Johnny/Orihime fluff. This fanfic is the third in the Aikatsu category, and I hope you'll take the time to read my shortest story ever!
Super Mario Bros. The Darkside Chronicles Sneak Peek: This is the trailer for my upcoming Mario story, with the plot seen below.
Parental: My first REAL fanfic for Fantastic Max, now in the Hanna-Barbera section. Plastic or not, a father will protect his children.
Dear Nanoha Fans: This is a series of short letters that the characters of Nanoha write to the fans. This story has THE most hits and reviews that I've received, even moreso than all of my other stories combined!
Best Friends Forever-Redone: A rewrite of my first Veggie story, Best Friends Forever, this story uses various characters instead of just Bob and Larry, and shows the differences between simple and real friends.
The Ferret Who Knew Too Much: My second Lyrical Nanoha fanfic. Yuuno Scyra's life was going well until the day someone hands him what he thinks is a normal to do list. Said to-do list happens to have an assassination plot as one of the errands. The next thing he knows, the person who handed him the list is murdered, he finds himself being chased all over Mid-Childa, and to make matters worse, one of his good friends is the one being targeted. As the only person who knows of the inner workings of this plot, Yuuno must make a choice: risk his life to stop the assassination, or remain silent and watch his friends die. This time, it looks like our favorite ferret boy will have to use more than book smarts to stay one step ahead of the assassins... (This idea came about from watching too much Alfred Hitchcock and also being in a mood to read stories with Yuuno, one of my favorite characters ever. Most crime stories in the Nanoha fandom have Fate as the main character as she's an Enforcer in-universe, but I wanted to challenge the norm and write a good fic that takes homages from Alfred Hitchcock-but with Yuuno as the main character. I will go back and rewrite this in time.)
Hugs and Kisses: A Veggie Tales romance fic that I was thinking of writing for Valentine's Day. A new episode is being filmed, and the producers have decided to thrown in some romance. Bob isn't at all fazed by this...until he learns that the romantic scenes will feature him and Madame Blueberry, who are the main characters! Although he's a nervous wreck about the whole thing, Madame Blueberry is delighted, being that she has quite the crush on the tomato. It's not long before their fun-filled lives draw them closer together. But when a rival animation company tries to destroy Big Idea, will the veggies be able to finish the episode? And will Bob and Madame Blue get their happy ending? Bob/Madame Blueberry, with some Larry/Petunia and minor Archie/Lovey. (This is a romance idea for VeggieTales, and apparently, the first fic for the pairing outright! Thanks to everyone for making this my second highest reviewed story!) Completed!
Chapters: 19 (16 in the story total; 3 are the unedited, original versions of Chapters 9-11, called the Lost Chapters)
Whispers in the Wind: One small thing can change the outcome of a situation. For Bob and the rest of the Big Idea staff, that small thing ended up changing things for the worse. AU ending to Hugs and Kisses. Bob/Madame Blue, hints of Mr. Lunt/Ellen, very light Larry/Petunia. Rated T for OOC alert, major character death and near suicide attempt.
A Shoulder to Cry On: It's been ten years since Madame Blue's death, but for some veggies, the healing process continues...A quick follow up/continuation of Whispers in the Wind. AU, and contains slight Bob/Madame Blue and Larry/Petunia mentions.
White Day Surprise: It's White Day at Starlight Academy, and for Johnny Bepp, it's also the day where he must make good on his promise to give his gift-giver a big surprise. The trouble is, he can't seem to figure out how to truly show his appreciation. Sequel to the above Unexpected Surprise, and contains Johnny/Orihime fluffiness and mentions of Ichigo/Naoto.
Lost Without You: He was lost without her in his life. It was something that he'd admitted to himself a year and a half ago, ever since their breakup. Mr. Lunt/Ellen. Takes place directly after Chapter 16 of Hugs and Kisses.
Here For A Reason: A lot of people wonder why Pa Grape is at Big Idea. During a break in filming their newest movie, Pa explains just why he's working at Big Idea and not in a retirement home. Pa-centric, and details his past. Takes place a few months after Hugs and Kisses.
Forgiven in the Rain: Standing before him in the doorway, holding a small umbrella to keep the rain from damaging her brunette hair, was Geneva herself. She looked just as surprised as Bob was, in no part due to his rough appearance and the fact that he was standing in 40 degree weather with only a nightcap on his head. AU, Bob/Madame Blueberry. Based on a "Imagine your OTP" prompt.
I Uh You, Too:Silence reigned in the room for exactly ten seconds, as Larry was fidgeting and Petunia tried to stem the tide of emotions that threatened to bring her down. She couldn't believe it. Larry was in love with someone, and it wasn't her. Larry/Petunia, and another one-shot that's based on the "Imagine Your OTP" prompt.
Acceptance:Many wonder just what Master Hand was thinking when he extended an invitation to the Duck Hunt Duo of all fighters. After all, many people hate the dog, and the game they come from isn't well known by modern players. Even the Smashers were curious, but only Mario dared to go forward and ask. What he discovers may change his perception on the duo. My first Super Smash Brothers fic. Rated T for animal cruelty.
No Laughing Matter: There are people who hide their pain with a smile and a laugh. For Jimmy and Jerry, the reason the two of them are the way they are is no laughing matter. Jimmy and Jerry-centric, told in Jimmy's POV. A direct follow-up to Here For A Reason, and continuation of a small mini arc. Rated T for a reason.
A Token Of Appreciation: Zeeter was certain that Bula didn't feel the same way about her, and that he was interested in Bonnie, the newest member of the team. A small gift quickly changed all that. Zula Patrol one-shot, featuring Bula/Zeeter.
A Hero's Welcome: After returning home as a hero once more, Huck discovers that his wife has a special present for him. Shameless Huck/Desert Flower fluff, set a few years after "The Good, the Bad and Huckleberry Hound".
Redemption: The Story of The Last R.O.B.: Many have wondered why R.O.B. stayed in the Super Smash Brothers tournament after his role in the Subspace Emissary gave him a bad reputation. Luigi, R.O.B.'s only friend, sees a sadness in the optics of this old machine and wonders just why he did what he did. When he asks Master Hand about it, the answers are not what he expected. Sequel to Acceptance. Two-shot.
The Ghost of Huckleberry Hound: Things in Two-Bit take a drastic turn for the worst when Huckleberry Hound is killed by the Daltons. Now forced to work under the Daltons’ tyrannical rule, the citizens of Two-Bit are all ready to give up hope. But help does arrive…just not the way they expected it. A what-if type ending to “The Good, the Bad and Huckleberry Hound”. One-shot.
Impromptu Date: Skipping detention is never a good idea, but who said you couldn't have a little fun out of it? High School AU, and my first Top Cat/Trixie fic. Inspired by the "Good Kid/Troublemaker" AU prompts on tumblr.
Fightin' For Ya: Trixie takes an injured Top Cat back to her house when he gets seriously injured after he gets into a fight at school. When she demands to know why he was fighting Sylvester Sneekly, Top Cat's explanation was not what she expects. Takes place several months after "Impromptu Date". Top Cat/Trixie.
No Pet Policy: Trixie's boss sends her to remind a repeat offender of their no pet policy; a simple enough task for anybody. Now, if only he'd bothered to mention that said repeat offender is a handsome devil who's got a way with words...AU, and T.C./Trixie. Rated T for some slight adult humor, mostly due to flustered Trixie, and flirty T.C.
Super Readers' Biggest Adventure: A Super Why story that basically answers the 'what if the Super Readers had to fight evil' question. I call it a movie. When a princess named Muse and her dog, Woofster, crash-land in Storybrook Village one day, it sets off a very strange series of events. The reason they are here is because of a supervillain called the Evil Reader is searching for the Reader's Amulet, a powerful item that will give one the power over all of the fairy tale world. Muse and Woofster tried to stop him, but failed, and he invades the village, turns the entire population into possessed slaves, and destroys most of the village. The Super Readers, whose own family members were taken, are the only ones who can stop the Evil Reader-and they set out on their biggest adventure ever! AU fic (as Woofster is given a different backstory) and small Whyatt/Red moments. Finally complete!
A Welcome Distraction: Huckleberry Hound and Desert Flower have been in a happy relationship for a little over three years. One morning, as they're watching the sunrise together on the beach, Huck tells Desert Flower something he'd been meaning to tell her ever since they'd first met. AU and HuckleFlower. Rated T for some depressing subject matter.
Mysterious Gathering: A corrupt businessman, his sadistic employee, a fallen superhero, two evil overlords, a former advisor, a wizard, an assassin, the wizard's second-in-command, a mercenary and a mad scientist walk into the same bar one evening, and end up in the same room. This will not end well...or will it? A crossover with the villains from (some) of my fanfics. Two-shot.
Tea for Two: A Veggie Tales Romance: Archibald Asparagus is a well known theater actor, and in short, the quintessential British gentleman. While chancing upon a recently opened teahouse called The Blue Moon, he meets Lovelace "Lovey" Billington, a kindhearted, impoverished woman who's just trying to make ends meet for her unemployed, unmotivated family. The moment they meet, an attraction quickly sparks between them...but could it all be blown apart when a family feud breaks out? AU (obviously), and Archie/Lovey, with very light sprinkles of BoBerry (Bob/Madame Blueberry). Five-shot.
By My Side: While recovering from a dangerous mission in the hospital, Zeeter awakens to receive congratulations from her captain...and learns just how devoted he can be. Bula/Zeeter fluffiness.
A King's Oath: Not long after Cornelius' departure, Edmund reflects on his son's words, his life as king, and what he needs to do in order to be what his son wishes him to be: a good king. Set after the epilogue of "The Pooka Prince".
Of Librarians and Love: After a tiring day at work, love is the last thing on Walden's mind. But when he met her, it was the only thing on his mind. Librarian AU. Walden/Widget one-shot, with a little bit of Buggy/Huggy.
Ricochet's Day Off: Even the fastest workaholic daredevil in the West needs to have a day off. A short side-story to Blazin' Trails and a companion fic to Vulaan Kulaas' fic "Powerful Friendship, Iron Bond".
Size Doesn't Matter: A girls' day out results in Denise feeling as though her lack of "assets" doesn't make her attractive enough. Her boyfriend isn't hearing that, however. A small drabble I wrote on Tumblr. Droop-a-Long/Denise, with mentioned Ricochet/Melissa. Rated T for innuendos.
Weak No Longer: Looking at herself in the mirror, she wiped away the few remaining tears from her eyes. Her weakness had cost her everything. But it wouldn't cost her anything, not anymore. Rinne-centric fic that takes place after episode four of ViVid Strike. (I'll probably rewrite this later in time, since I'm not too happy with it.)
Firsts: While having one of their "night owl" evenings, Ricochet and Droop-a-Long recall their first year living and working together under the same roof. A humor-based side story to Blazin' Trails, filled with friendship fluff and chaos.
Welcome Home, Soldier: Desert Flower hasn't been the same ever since her husband, Huckleberry Hound, was presumed dead during a deadly mission. She's been trying her best, though it's not easy for her or her daughter, Clementine. But that routine is interrupted by the most unexpected of guests. Modern-day AU. HuckleFlower. Rated T for mentions of torture.
Fiery Heart, Broken Soul: Meta Knight and Dedede weren't the only ones who represented Popstar alongside Kirby in the third Super Smash Brothers tournament. Dedede's sister Scarlet, the secret princess of Dreamland, has joined her brother and his companion in the "fight across worlds" that is Super Smash. While most of the Smashers are a little surprised by this unexpected addition, they welcome her as one of their own, even if Master Hand isn't too happy about it. Scarlet's fiery attitude, however, is a front to hide her truly broken soul, which Dedede hopes the tournament will restore. But when the past catches up to her in the most unexpected way possible, and a new enemy threatens the Smashworld, can Scarlet overcome her demons and help the Smashers fight this menace? My second Super Smash Brothers fic, written using Vulaan Kulaas's OC, and my first mature story. Warnings/triggers: graphic violence, psychological and physical torture, implied rape and sexual themes (but not for the reasons you believe). This story takes place during Brawl.
Status: Chapter 5 mostly in progress
Mirror, Mirror: Trixie LaRue is a down-to-earth journalist who's got an eye for fashion. She didn't believe that magic or anything remotely supernatural was real...right up until she purchased a beautiful mirror with a ghastly surprise: a cat trapped inside it. The cat in question, Top Cat, is a prisoner from four centuries past who's got his eye on freedom, and believes that Trixie's the key to it. At first, Trixie wants nothing to do with this, but when strange forces start taking interest in her and Top Cat, she may have to believe in the impossible in order to save him. In the midst of this, an unlikely partnership forms between them, but will demons of the past and preset keep them from being anything more than just friends? Modern-day fantasy AU inspired by an OTP prompt, and T.C./Trixie.
Status: Chapter 4 on hiatus
Blazin' Trails: He's the fastest sheriff in the West, with a prideful nature and a bit of a temper to boot. He's the slowest deputy around, bumbling through life in his clumsy, easygoing way. They've had their fair share of fights, and more than once they've been put through the ringer. But if one thing can't be argued, it's that their friendship, while odd, is unbreakable. A collection of vignettes focusing on Ricochet Rabbit and Droop-a-Long, ranging from sweet to silly to serious. Features Droop-a-Long/OC in some shorts. (This was originally a one-shot called "No One's Perfect", but so many ideas filled my head for shorts that it inspired me to make this story a short collection. Originally these shorts were not connected, but that changed when "Taking the Bullet" and "Driven to the Edge" were published. These shorts take place in various points across a span of ten-twelve years and beyond...so the timeline, which is listed below and is still in progress, is way more extensive than most of my other stories.)
Chapters: 23/whenever I decide to stop
Status: Currently editing a few chapters and writing several new chapters
You've Got My Attention: Sheriff Callie gets the attention of a handsome but annoyingly persistent suitor named Timothy, who won't take no for an answer. It isn't long before her deputy Peck's defensive side kicks in, but this ends up starting something neither he nor Callie could have anticipated, and it forces both of them to realize the extent of their feelings for each other. A Sheriff Callie's Wild West fic. Callie/Peck
Status: Chapter 5 on hiatus
SRBA Gaiden: Darkness Rewrite: Stories in the fairytale world are being severely altered, and Whyatt is suspected to be responsible for it. In order to clear his name, the Super Readers venture into the ruined stories, only to encounter a threat the likes of which they'd never seen before. Side-story to Super Readers' Biggest Adventure, and contains small Whyatt/Red moments.
Status: Currently on hiatus
Have Guitar, Will Travel: Four months have passed since the citizens of Two-Bit captured the Dalton Brothers and sent them to prison, and since then, things have been peaceful. That peace is shattered when the Daltons break out of jail and kidnap the mayor of Two-Bit, Hokey Wolf. Two-Bit's sheriff, Quick Draw McGraw, his faithful deputy, Baba Looey, and Bob, Hokey's faithful horsie, immediately set out to rescue him, but they soon learn that their mission's not going to be an easy one, as the Daltons have more allies and more tricks up their sleeves. 4-shot sequel to "The Ghost of Huckleberry Hound". Quick Draw/OC, with some hints of Baba/OC.
Status: Rewriting chapter 4
The Return of the Phantom Empire: The safety of the galaxy is threatened when the remnants of a horrific enemy known as the Phantom Empire, led by the wizened and terrifying Donkirk, arise after ten years of banishment. Bent on revenge, they capture Top Cat and his crew and hold them hostage as part of their plot to regain power. The Galaxy Goof-Ups are called onto the case, but when their goofing around puts Snerdly in the hands of the enemy, the team could be facing serious consequences as a result of their constant failure. Galaxy Goof-Ups fanfic, and obviously much darker than the original show. Part 2 of my Hanna-Barbera Head Dumps. (I'm quite surprised with the response that "The Return of the Phantom Empire" is getting, because I seriously didn't expect any reviews or favorites because of the show that it was based on. But now CooperGal24 on dA (who has some really cool H-B fanart; you should check her stuff, it's awesome) loves the story and a few other people want to see the fic (including my brother, who isn't as big a H-B fan, but does like Huck and the gang). I've put this story on deviantART to see if it gets any response there, and I may consider putting some other stories up there, too, to give them some exposure. Thanks to all who reviewed and favorited! It really makes my day! :D)
Status: Chapter 5 (mostly) in progress
The Heroes of Time: The worlds of Hanna-Barbera are turned upside down when the Heartless invade, swallowing everything in darkness, kidnapping residents and in general causing havoc. Headed by the mysterious Extinguisher, who in turn is in league with Organization XIII, they will not stop until all of the worlds' Hearts are gathered--and these worlds are destroyed. Legendary and unlikely heroes from across time and space have received Keyblades, and are forced to band together and fight against this horrific threat. Huckleberry Hound is one of the many who receives a Keyblade after the Heartless invade his world. When he encounters a similar situation elsewhere, he learns that he and six others have been chosen to save the universe from being swallowed by darkness. With the help of the mysterious Inner Circle, he and his companions-Yogi Bear, Top Cat, Quick Draw McGraw, Fred Flintsone, George Jetson and Fred Jones-begin their quest. But nobody said that this mission would be a cakewalk, and tensions and other dark secrets threaten to split the group. It's their job to drive away the darkness and restore balance...but can they complete this mission without succumbing to the darkness inside their own hearts? (This originally was supposed to be a one-shot, but I had so much fun writing it I decided to expand it into a full-blown story. I'm pretty sure it's going to be as long as Fiery Heart, Broken Soul since it's going to have a lot of material.)
Chapters: 7/12 (starting point;not sure how many chapters I'll have right now)
Status: Drafting chapter 8
The Zula Patrol: Dreamscape Crusade: The first-ever Zula Patrol fic (on this site, anyways)! During a trip to newly discovered ruins, Multo and his friend Professor Autofocus make a startling discovery-a discovery that soon causes tragedy for the Zula Patrol. Before the team can overcome their grief, a new threat called the Legion, led by the mysterious Paragor, appears on Zula the day after Multo’s funeral. His plan: to lay waste to Zula in order to make way for an alternate world, known as a ‘Dreamscape’, to come to pass. As they take up the case, however, they discover that what they've been told about the Dreamscape isn't even half of the whole story. Their investigation leads them to uncover dark secrets that should've remained hidden, revealing age old grudges, and putting strong bonds through the ringer. It's another job for the Zula Patrol, but this time, the universe as they know it is at stake. Heavy AU, contains light sci-fi and fantasy themes. Multo/Zeeter, Bula/OC.
Status: Chapter 10 nearly complete
Sodor Magic Crusaders: Thomas Billington is a hard-working, but cheeky university student. He and his good friend, Toby, are getting through the second-to-last semester of school, and it seems as though he's got his life in the bag. That all changes when an injured man falls out of the sky, carrying a set of mysterious pages and an equally mysterious jewel. When another man with a flaming sword comes falling out of the sky moments later with the intention to kill them, Thomas ends up activating the strange jewel, Raising Heart, and becomes a mage. Not long after this, the seven pages that Percy had been carrying split all over Sodor. With these pages all over Sodor, the peaceful island becomes the focal point in a magical war from another dimension as evil mages come to find the page. Agreeing to help recover the Pages before the evil Diesel 10 can, Thomas and his new friends face a set of challenges that will test their resolve. A humanized fusion crossover with Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, set in an alternate universe and filled with divergences from canon. (Remember how I said that this would be written when Super Why was nearly done? Yeah...I lied. I repent! 13 have been planned for the story, though, but for the first half. I'm thinking of bumping the number of chapters up to about twenty. I'm also going through the process of rewriting the first few chapters so expect the word count to be much bigger.)
Status: Chapter 15 nearly complete
If Likin' You Is Wrong & Other Stories: Droop-a-Long Coyote's the slowest, sweetest deputy around, bumbling through life in his own easygoing way. Denise Falconeri's a rabbit who, while being a proper lady, has a bit of an adventurous streak. On normal circumstances, these two never would've met, let alone form a relationship. That'd all change with one sentence: "I know this ain't entirely the best of ideas. But if likin' you is wrong, then I don't want to do the right thing." A small companion collection to Blazin' Trails, leading directly up to the events of the short "Rapid Romance". Droop-a-Long/OC
Status: Part 2 being rewritten
In the Forge (projects currently being drafted/written):
Super Mario Bros.: The Darkside Chronicles: My first Mario fanfic idea. It had been a pretty normal day up until Bowser appeared. Mario is ready to fight against his arch nemesis again, but then Bowser reveals a new weapon that he's been developing for a while since his last defeat-and when he activates it, the catastrophic event that occurs causes our plumber to fall into a coma that lasts ten years. When he finally awakens, he finds that everything has taken a turn for the worse: the Mushroom Kingdom has been renamed into Koopa City, Bowser's eight Koopalings rule every part of the world, and Princess Peach has been forced to marry Bowser. Mario, with the help of his brother Luigi and a renegade Toad brigade, must navigate through this twisted world they once knew in order to make things right. (This is an idea I had for a while. Even though I'm not a huge Bowser fan, he will get some development in the story, as will Mario and Luigi. I'm thinking of doing this with 40 chapters. The first chapter is done, and the second is being written now...)
Status: In development heck
Thingamabob: Origins: A team up with Jack Frost lover cadi93. Takes place before the League of Incredible Vegetables, and partially inspired by Iron Man. Bob the Tomato is an aspiring inventor who recently moved to the small, peaceful city of Rapscale. He starts a new job, makes friends with the neighbors, and thinks that nothing could go wrong with the town. This is proven wrong, however, when the city falls under a wave of crime after two new supervillains start terrorizing the city. Unable to watch this unfold and do nothing, Bob uses his inventing skills to make a super powered belt with various gadgets. Donning a whole new identity, he decides to take on crime as the one and only Thingamabob. (This is an idea I was going to write in February of this year, but I ended up writing Hugs and Kisses instead. Thanks to my friend, Jack Frost cadi93, I've decided to do a superhero story, but with Thingamabob as the main character instead of Larry-Boy. Nothing against Larry-Boy, but I do have a love of underdogs-and one of my favorite characters is Bob the Tomato, so that's a no brainer. I'll post a one-shot on this eventually, as we're still working on the meat of the story...We've got the first chapter done, and Jack Frost cadi93 is going to write the second one with my help...)
Status: On hold
Ricocheted Rendezvous: While investigating a series of crimes in Hoop ‘n Holler, Ricochet Rabbit is stunned to find a letter from Melissa Starkweather, his former girlfriend that he loved but later lost to his job and to another rabbit. In her letter, she states that she desperately needs his help, and arranges to meet him at their old meeting place. The two reunite, but any chance of a rekindled romance is dashed when Melissa's life, as well as that of a friend of Ricochet's, is put in danger. As he pursues the criminials, Ricochet finds himself facing a daunting decision: the call of duty or his heart's desire. GoHH universe. Ricochet/OC

The Knights of Hanabera: Hanabera, a kingdom full of awesome magic, mythical creatures and talking animals, is in a state of chaos. With the king having fallen in battle, the race is on to claim the throne as Hanabera's neighboring enemies are attempting to invade it. The prince of Hanabera, Cornelius, was exiled years ago, and Dick Dastardly, the only person who's next in line for the throne, is more interested in having ultimate power rather than restoring order. When Dastardly's plans for world domination become known, it's up to six warriors to overthrow him and his wicked council. Will they find the prince and help him regain the throne? Or will all be lost? Fantasy AU heavily inspired by Odin Sphere. HuckleFlower, T.C./Trixie and Quick Draw/OC.
Kicked Into High Gear: A new battle game known as Yuansu Racer has swept Jellystone Mall, and nearly every student in school owns one. Many vie to be the best team around, but the indomitable Black Gears, backed by the greedy Lou Strickland, are sending many people packing. When Yogi and his team end up losing, it seems like another victory for the Black Gears...until Top Cat gets involved and takes on the Black Gears' leader, Ty Tiger. Despite not having enough skill, he narrowly wins the match. Thinking nothing of this, he prepares to go back to his normal life, only to have caught the eye of Charlie Dibble, a local mall cop, who asks to be his trainer. So begins a tale of battles, friendship, betrayal and teamwork as Top Cat and his friends, known as the Alley Gears, compete with other teams to become the best Racer team around. Yo Yogi! universe, starring Top Cat and his gang, with occasional appearances from other H-B characters, and inspired by Crush Gear Turbo. Eventual T.C./Trixie. (This is an idea that someone named brave kid had, and though I never watched Crush Gear Turbo, learning about the anime inspired me to take this project on. It's gonna be interesting, since I've never actually written a story about a battle game before. brave kid and I are currently in the middle of talking through what all is going to be in there, and I'm doing lots of research about games like Beyblade and whatnot. This will appear after Have Guitar, Will Travel is finished.)
Hugs and Kisses-Remastered: A rewrite of my first full-length Veggie story. The producers have decided to do a parody of Casablanca, and true to its source material, there will be a romance between the two leads. Bob, who is going to be the head producer of this episode, doesn't have a problem with this-and then he learns that he and Madame Blueberry, who are playing the lead roles, are doing them! He's not terribly excited about the idea, while Madame Blue is, since she's had a thing going for Bob for quite some time now. Movie-making gets put on hold, however, when a rival animation company attempts to destroy them from the inside out. Can the Big Idea staff come out on top? And in the midst of all this, is romance even possible for Bob and Madame Blueberry? Bob/Madame Blueberry, with some Archie/Lovey and Larry/Petunia thrown in for good measure.
The Ferret Who Knew Too Much Remastered: A rewrite of my first mystery story. When Yuuno Scrya picks up a to-do list with an assassination as one of the errands, things rapidly spiral out of control. In a matter of days, he's caught in a conspiracy that will threaten to tear the TSAB from the inside. Can he remain one step ahead of them in order to warn his friends? Or will he be silenced?
Chaos' Revenge: Sequel to Super Readers' Biggest Adventure. A few months after saving the fairytale world from Chaos' destructive ambitions, the Super Readers are training to become great superheroes in addition to learning of their own abilities. Their daily lives are interrupted when an attack on the Superhero Council reveals that the biggest threat the Super Readers have ever faced has returned: Chaos, the One-Winged Angel of Destruction, has escaped his fiery prison, and seeks revenge on Jeremiah, the fairytale world, and most of all, the Super Readers. In a matter of days, majority of the fairytale world is destroyed, and most of the Superhero Council members, including Jackson, has fallen to injury. The only person who can help is a boy named Saturn Volt, already looking to be one of the most powerful superheroes in the world, but he is cursed to die if he uses his powers even once; this curse was placed on him by Chaos when he was young, and has prevented him from helping anyone. With the help of Muse, Lexicon, Jeremiah and Saturn Volt, the Super Readers must set out to destroy Chaos once and for all...AU, some Whyatt/Red moments, as well as Princess Pea/OC. (Okay, forget about Revenge of the Evil Reader being the sequel. As Chaos is revealed to be the real reason behind the Evil Reader's behavior, and Jackson is his own character, I decided to change the plot around. Jeremiah and Chaos will be developed a lot more in this story, and a new character will be introduced from one of my older stories. This is also going to be longer than my first story, so be prepared)
Very Veggie Romance: Since when did the cast of VeggieTales become the stars of a soap opera? Join our beloved veggies (and fruits) in this romantic drama, which is the sequel to Hugs and Kisses. About five months after making Carrotblanca, Bob gets a call from Letti Jameson, the creator of the popular Tales of the Fridge series, who is interested in making a remake of the second movie. Being fans of the series, Bob immediately signs on for the project, and the Veggies get to work with Rick Loraine and the other costars of the show. Romance is still in the air: Archibald and Lovey Asparagus, old friends turned lovers, have a special announcement to make! Mr. Lunt, the resident 'matchmaker' on the set, finds himself falling in love again with his 'old flame', Ellen Gourd. Bob and Madame Blueberry are happily in love with each other, and Larry and Petunia, the resident 'official couple' on the set, may become something more! But will things go downhill when someone with a grudge wreaks havoc on the set? This story contains Archie/Lovey, Larry/Petunia, and Bob/Madame Blueberry, as well as Mr. Lunt/Ellen and an OC pairing. (This is on my poll as a story that I'm thinking of writing. Right now, I'm just writing out some scenes from the story. I know that Lovey is Archie's wife according to Big Idea-much to the annoyance of his fangirls- but in this story, I thought it would be okay to have them start out as old friends, and then they turn into a couple. I won't spoil if they get married or not, since I haven't gotten that far! Reading 'Timely Love Stories' from Comment person and 'A Very Veggie Love Story' from SterlingSilverWolf pretty much inspired me to write this story. Thanks guys! :) If there are enough votes on the poll, then this will be in the works!)
Shattered Bonds, Ivory Heart: The sequel to Fiery Heart, Broken Soul and set thirteen years after that story. Scarlet's twin children, Carlos and Ebony, as well as their siblings, are living normal lives with their mother and father, Falco...or at least, as normal as it can be for a brood of Demon Beast hybrids. They accidentally learn of their Demon Beast origins when they overhear their parents and their honorary uncle, Devane, talking about it, and after receiving the whole story, they decide to learn how to fend for themselves. En route to the fourth Super Smash Brothers tournament, their lives come crashing down when a fiend from their mother's past returns: Fang, a white-furred Wolf Demon Beast, who is intent on getting revenge on her for killing his brother, Dr. Ver, as well as employing his brother's sick tactics on everyone in the Lylat system. He kidnaps Scarlet and takes her back to the place where she had her soul broken. With time possibly running out for Scarlet as well as the Lylat system, it's up to the Star Fox team and Scarlet and Falco's children to save everything before it's too late. (Vulaan Kulaas came up with the idea to do this story, and I approved of it instantly. Thing is, I don't know when I'll even write it, since FH, BS is going to take a very long time to write...)
As Raspberry Snow has done for her Larryboy stories, I might as well list the chronological order of my some of my stories. After all, I wouldn't want you to be confused, right?

I have a LOT of original characters, but it would take way too long to list all of them. I'll list them by story; that way, you're not confused. By the way, I try to keep the OC count to about 2-4 characters, and I do my best to make sure that they're well-developed and not overpowered Mary Sues. The story's title is in italics, and the character's bio is in bold.
* IMPORTANT Note: These profiles contain spoilers for events that will later show up in the stories I write. If you don't want parts of the story to be spoiled for you, then don't read. You have been warned!
Super Reader's Biggest Adventure
Inspired by: Cure Muse of Suite Precure (Which I also don't own. To be honest, I'm not a really huge fan of Suite, but I really like Cure Muse's design, which I used for the character.)
Weapons: Sparkbreaker, Royal Mojule
Goal(s): To save the fairytale world from the Evil Reader's rule
Voice Actor: Grey DeLisle (English)
Quote: "If...if you really think I'm going to just step aside, then you're stupider than you look."
A serious-minded young girl, Muse is the princess of Major Land. Her story is 'Major Land', which is a story about a kingdom that thrives on music. Despite a war going on, she and her father used to live happily together, right up until the Evil Reader started to destroy stories. Major Land refused to fight the Evil Reader, which led to tensions in the royal court to the point where there was a split. When the Evil Reader attacked Major Land directly, her father led the forces against him and his army of possessed villagers from other stories. Muse was given her mother's Royal Mojule and the family heirloom Sparkbreaker to fight the Evil Reader herself. She later went from story to story to save people before the Evil Reader took control of them; this led to her meeting Woofster, who she saved from the Evil Reader when he was losing his powers. From the moment they met, she and the Evil Reader have been fierce rivals. When the Evil Reader tried to steal the Sword of Sealing, the two had a massive duel that ended with the Evil Reader gaining the Sword. He then forged it with his sword, Shadowdoom, to create an extremely powerful dark sword called Doombringer. With the help of Woofster, she escaped to Storybrook Village, and caused quite an uproar after their flashy entrance. She later comes to the Super Readers for help, but later ends up helping them when the Evil Reader starts turning the adults of Storybrook Village evil. She sends the Super Readers through the Five-Dimensional Door while she fights the Evil Reader, and rejoins them later in the Second Door.
Muse tends to be serious about the task at hand, and is rather sarcastic at times. However, she is a kindhearted and well-meaning person underneath her tough demeanor. While she has no problems asking for others' help, she does have problems admitting when she's wrong, tends to give the big jobs to herself, such as fighting the Evil Reader for part of the story, and doesn't like people worrying over her all the time. She also has a tendency to use 'a little force' when diplomacy fails, even if there was a slight disagreement. More often than not, this can cause more harm than good, as she can seriously end up hurting people. However, she is quick to apologize for what she did, and is eager to make amends. While she fights normally using her sword, Sparkbreaker, she's not afraid to punch someone twice her size in the face, either.
The Evil Reader (real name: Jackson Flatts)
Inspired by: Anakin Skywalker from Star Wars
Age: He looks to be the same age as Whyatt, but acts MUCH older than him (Chapter 17 reveals that he was about 15 when he turned into the Evil Reader)
Weapons: Shadowdoom (original), Doombringer (after he gains the Sword of Sealing), the Dark Prophecies
Goal(s): To completely rewrite the fairytale world according to his wishes (it seems like this); to regain his body back and do whatever he can to atone for what he's done (as Jackson)
Voice Actor: Yuri Lowenthal (English)
A sinister, cruel supervillain whose only purpose in life is to conquer and destroy things, the Evil Reader seeks to gain control of the Fairytale World. His quest for domination has caused the destruction to many stories; Muse and Woofster have grudges against him for this very reason. He seeks to gain two very important and very powerful artifacts: the Sword of Sealing (not to be confused with the like-titled item of Sailor Moon), the most powerful sword in the universe; and the Reader's Amulet, which will give one control over all of the fairy tale realm and thereby rewrite stories. He invades and destroys many stories to locate both items, and eventually became archenemies with Princess Muse and Woofster. At the World Tree, used to guard the Sword of Sealing, he defeats Muse and steals the sword, forging it with his original sword, Shadowdoom, to create an extremely powerful sword called Doombringer. He soon invades Storybrook Village, turns nearly all the inhabitants into possessed slaves, and destroys most of the village. The Super Readers have no choice but to chase him down at this point, and he faces off against them many times over the course of the story.
Cruel, destructive and unmerciful, the Evil Reader certainly lives up to his name. While he is very calculating and has the skills to back up nearly all of his claims, his short temper, his arrogance, and his pride are his fatal flaws. He also has a (very creepy) crush on Princess Presto, who thankfully doesn't reciprocate his feelings. On several occasions, he has shown a lapse in sanity, which made his henchman, Lexicon, betray him to help the Super Readers. His history is unknown to most of the fairytale realm, but the story hints that he was once a Super Reader (read chapter 11), something that the Evil Reader is very bitter about. In Chapter 17, the Super Readers head into a library where they managed to find a book on the Evil Reader's history. What they learn there surprises them.
The book reveals that the Evil Reader used to be a resident of Minor Land, Major Land's evil neighbors, and his name was Jackson Flatts. As a young boy, the flaws he possesses as the Evil Reader were much more apparent, but he was a gifted magic user and an exceptional swordsman. Together with his friends Cheryl and Carlos, Jackson trained to become a Super Reader, but he had problems controlling his powers, which led to ostracism among his fellow peers (and a few of his friends). He later discovered that he had the power to warp reality, and originally sought to use his powers to help people as a Super Reader, but his school declined his training as they feared that his reality warping powers and his magic would make him far too powerful to be a Super Reader. While sulking home, Jackson came across a powerful object called the Black Crystal. Inside it, he communicated with its conscience, Helena, who told him that when he learned to surpress his flaws, he would be able to help her get out of the Crystal. During this time, he fell in love with his best friend Cheryl, but ended up being heartbroken when her father revealed that she was betrothed to his friend, Carlos. Later on, the Black Crystal was released, and its inhabitant, Chaos, tempted Jackson by using and twisting his bad memories. This caused Jackson to completely snap, and in his grieving rage, he allowed Chaos to take over his body, took on the name of the Evil Reader, and used his new powers to destroy his entire story, killing everyone he loved, including his best friends Cheryl and Carlos. He immediately felt bad for what he did, but he soon learns that the deal he made with Chaos is irreversible. Jackson is soon removed from his body, and Chaos uses it to fulfill his purpose by renaming him the Evil Reader. Jackson is left as a ghost in the spirit realm, continually trying to reclaim his body and repenting for everything he did, including killing the people he loved (Cheryl comes to mind) and destroying two stories-one being his home. Will Jackson recover his body? Time can only tell...
Inspired by: Edmund Pevensie from Narnia (a helpful reviewer named Jonathan pointed out the similarities between these two characters.)
Weapons: The Dark Prophecies, Cross Blade (seen in Chapter 10)
Goal(s): To get revenge on Major Land and revive his beloved Angelica (at first); to destroy Chaos and help Jackson get his body back in order to atone for his sins (Chapter 17 onward)
Voice Actor: Carlos Alazraqui (English)
The Evil Reader’s assistant, Lexicon was the former advisor to King Mephisto of Major Land, who is Muse’s father, and was trusted by everyone-except for Muse that is, and the two are shown to have an intense dislike for each other. While at the court, he fell in love with a girl named Angelica, who was one of the ladies-in-waiting to the queen, and she had similar feelings towards him. Lexicon had planned to marry her; however, a group of advisers called the High Cleric, who worked directly under the king, believed that Angelica was going to steal the Sword of Sealing despite the shady evidence. Lexicon had five of the members removed, but upon hearing that they were going to kill him, he and Angelica planned to run off together. The High Cleric, though, refused to believe them; the next day, Angelica was brutally murdered by the High Cleric in front of Lexicon despite pleading her innocence. The only thing that remained of her was a small pin that she had kept from her father. Lexicon completely snapped, and in his murderous fury killed all of the members of the High Cleric. For this reason, he lost his title of head advisor and was expelled from the kingdom, being sent to a mental institution for two years. During that time, he gathered research on the Sword of Sealing and the Reader's Amulet, and began to plot ways to destroy Major Land and revive Angelica. It was also during that time that he met the Evil Reader, who had heard of him and decided to use him for his own goals. Ever since then, Lexicon has helped the Evil Reader cause chaos in the fairytale realm in order to get one step closer to revenge.
Throughout the story, he and the Evil Reader do not get along with each other, and the adviser is constantly on the Evil Reader's snide remarks and gets a lot of physical abuse from him. In the later part of the story, he begins to go behind the Evil Reader's back and disobeys orders, as well as questioning his working with the Evil Reader. By chapter 17, he has accomplished a HeelFaceTurn after discovering the real personality of the Evil Reader, which was all due him being possessed by Chaos, who is responsible for all the calamity in the story. Summoning his sword, Cross Blade, he challenges the now-revealed Chaos to a fight, which they have in the final door.
In a way, he is more “human” than the Evil Reader, who seems to have a complete lack of morals. He acts like a gentleman, but this is all a front to his evil side. He can talk a good fight, but rarely acts on it. He also seems to have an internal conflict of good and evil, and finds himself in the 'middle' a lot. Lexicon is a muscular man, although it’s mentioned he’s middle-aged, and he has dark skin and fiery eyes, and has long silver hair.
Species: Human (implied to be half-human)
Inspired by: Jacob, King David
Weapons: Gungnir (golden gauntlets)
A member of the mysterious Superhero Council, Jeremiah is the fairytale world's most powerful superhero, and he guides the Super Readers throughout the story. He gives out upgrades to those he believes have earned their potential. Though he appears to be very composed and calm, he is extremely vengeful once his anger has reached his limit, and he always carries a good degree of guilt with him for many past events,although he hides it very well. Little is known about his past life, but he has mentioned offhandedly to his most trusted subordinate Ethan that his brother was Chaos, and that he feels incredibly guilty about not being a good brother to him. It is also mentioned that he and Chaos are also the last of their kind as the Super Readers are, but it is unknown what their species are.
Jeremiah will get more focus in the SRBA Gaiden series, as well as Chaos' Revenge.
Age: 35 (at the time of death)
Inspired by: King Arthur
Weapons: Oathkeeper, Sword of Sealing (once)
Prince Phillip was the original holder of the Sword of Sealing, and noted to be the most famous ruler of Major Land. Much of what is known about him is mostly legend, but his home country went to great lengths to collect every detail of his life in order to show what he was really like. The legend went as follows:he wielded Sword of Sealing in his last battle in order to seal away the Calamity Trigger, a dangerous artifact which was destroying Major Land. He ended up sacrificing himself to do so, but before he died, he split the Summoning Pin into fifths, and spread it throughout the stories as he foresaw that someone would be after a powerful artifact and would possibly use the Pin to get it.
In Chapter 14, Princesses Presto and Muse are sent to Major Land during this time, and learn that there was more to the legend than what was told. His father ended up forming an alliance with their neighboring enemy, Minor Land, which proved to be disastrous; King Falsetto was only using the alliance as a loophole to gain the Calamity Trigger, which was stored in Major Land. Phillip and his father were betrayed and imprisoned in the castle, although Phillip was seen fighting several Minor Land wizards before Muse and Princess Presto showed up. Despite escaping their captors thanks to Muse, the Calamity Trigger was activated by Minor Land's wizards and nearly destroyed Major Land. Thankfully, Phillip managed to wrestle the Sword of Sealing from the High Cleric's control, and using a powerful technique called Final Solution, he sealed the Trigger away and destroyed the High Cleric. Sadly, all of this came at a price, as the attack drained the life of the user in order for its power to be used. Although his body was dissolved into motes of light, Major Land still put up a gravesite for him. During this time, it is revealed that Mephisto and Phillip were brothers (Phillip being the older of the two by ten years), making Muse his niece; she actually gets to interact with him more in the chapter, and expresses sorrow that he never became the ruler of Major Land before he died.
Inspired by: Satan (or to be more correct, Lucifer) and Esau
Species: Human (well, half anyway)
Weapons: The Black Crystal, Doombringer (while he's inside Jackson's body)
Goal(s): To gain the Reader's Amulet and the Sword of Sealing to rewrite the fairytale world, creating tragic endings and gaining power (he used Jackson as a way to do this); to kill all of the Super Readers (as they alone could stop him)
Chaos is the driving force behind the Evil Reader's actions through the story. His previous background is very limited; chapter 17 reveals that he was a mad sorcerer who was intent on rewriting the entire fairytale world. He attempted to seal the one person who could stop him, Helena, inside the Black Crystal, but he slipped up and they were both sealed inside. Helena appealed to Jackson to release her from the crystal, but someone activated the Black Crystal and they were both released. Chaos killed Helena, and forcefully took over the powerful Jackson with his magic, since he needed a Super Reader to fulfill his goals as ruler of the fairytale world. Masquerading as the Evil Reader, he completely ruined Jackson's reputation, destroying stories and killing Super Readers, whom he had grown to hate as they were the main threat standing in his way of global domination. When he steals the Sword of Sealing, he sets off to find the Reader's Amulet, only to discover that the Super Readers are there. He leaves a path of chaos in his wake as he traps all of the villagers in Storybrook Village, and destroys stories. The Super Readers, when they learn that he was the one who has caused all of the calamity in the fairytale world, become determined to defeat him and help Jackson get his body back. But are they really able to fight against a nigh-invincible super being?
He will return in the sequel.
Inspired by: Reinforce from Nanoha A's
Goal: To stop Chaos from being released unto the world
Helena was Chaos' assistant back when he was still human. She knew very well of her Master's goals of destroying the world, and that he would try to stop her by sealing her into a crystal. During the process, Helena used a counter attack to stop it; however, they were both sealed inside, and for a hundred years, she had to endure torture from her former master and called out to anyone who would listen to her. She soon grabbed ahold of a boy named Jackson Flatts, and told him that when he learned to control his troublesome flaws (arrogance, pride, jealousy and anger) she would call him again to help her get out of the Crystal. Chaos, however, used his powerful magic to summon Lindy Harlaown, Jackson's teacher, to release him from the crystal. In a strange fortune of luck, she also released Helena from the Crystal. Helena attempted to warn Jackson not to fall for Chaos' trap, but her warnings are in vain as Jackson falls for the ploy. It is assumed that she was killed along with everyone else in Minor Land.
She will return in Chaos' Revenge.
Veggie Tales 'Verse
I have to make a separate category for this group, since some of the characters used appear again in various works.
Andrew the Tomato: Bob's older brother by four years who lives in Springfield with his parents, Molly and Steve. I was inspired by Atarah Derek's 'Ten Things You Didn't Know about the Veggies' fanfic, in which Bob mentions he has an older brother, and I decided to use that for my story. Andrew is the complete opposite of Bob, in all meaning of the word; he's pretty much a slob, is more loose, and has a bit of a mischievous streak. He used to hold a job at a movie theater, but then it went bankrupt and had to shut down, throwing him out of work. This is explained later on in Very Veggie Romance, where he appears as a supporting character. Andrew likes to tell jokes, and is responsible for Bob's embarrassing nickname, "Hairless". Andrew is mentioned in the original Best Friends Forever, and its remake. He is mentioned a few more times in Hugs and Kisses, and he finally makes an appearance in the upcoming Very Veggie Romance.
Lucy: Bob's daughter, who is seen in the original Best Friends Forever, and its remake. In the original, it is unknown who her mother is, although Larry hints that it's Madame Blueberry; Bob, though, vehemently denies it. In the remake, she is the daughter of Bob and Madame Blueberry. She wears glasses, and has yellow hair.
Rick Loraine: A tomato who is the star of the hit 'veggie action' movie Tales From the Fridge. Loved by virtually everyone and seen as the vegetable equivalent of James Bond, Rick is a kind actor who never misses the chances to speak with his fans. Bob and Madame Blueberry are his biggest fans, and it's mentioned that Jimmy and Jerry are fans as well. He is mentioned in chapter 4 in Hugs and Kisses, but he will make his debut as one of the main characters in Very Veggie Romance.
Eddie Russell: A zucchini who appears in chapter 8 of Hugs and Kisses, he is a producer from another animation company called Radical Animation. He looks nice on the outside, but his actions are not so squeaky clean, as he goes around threatening the other veggies and appears to have serious anger issues; Mr. Lunt doesn't like him at all, a feeling that's mutual around chapter 9. As revealed in chapter 11, the whole reason Eddie went to Big Idea was so he could eventually run it out of business by sending bad messages to kids by ruining Carrotblanca in order to keep Radical Animation on top. He and his psychopathic boss, Julian, wreak havoc on the studio and try to con Bob out of his position by threatening to harm Madame Blueberry. Thankfully, he and Julian are arrested by the cops.
Eddie is dangerous, ruthless and evil, as he has a long criminal history. Very Veggie Romance reveals that he has bipolar disorder, a result of his bad childhood, and anger management issues. He will return in the upcoming Very Veggie Romance. He also appears in "Tea For Two" as the main antagonist, "Thingamabob: Origins" as Bob's main rival, and in "Mysterious Gathering" as one of twelve villains that end up in the same bar.
Julian Maverick: Eddie Russell's boss, and the CEO of Radical Animation. Julian is the mastermind behind Eddie Russell being at Big Idea, and he wants to off Big Idea so his animation company can stay in business-and because he doesn't like Big Idea in general. When Eddie is unable to get the position at Big Idea, Julian suggests that they use 'force' to get what they want. He and Eddie show up at Big Idea the next day, reveal the plan to the whole staff, and sets the stage for chaos to reign over Big Idea. Julian also has a particular grudge against Madame Blueberry, since she had ruined his plans from the get go, and attempted to kill her; he was thwarted, thankfully, by Bob jumping in. This doesn't stop him, however, for he kidnaps Madame Blue and attempts to blackmail Bob into giving him the position of head producer or he will kill Madame Blue. Thankfully, Jimmy and Jerry call the cops on him and Eddie, and the two are arrested.
Julian appears to be a calm, collected vegetable with a rather dark sense of humor; usually, it takes a lot for him to lose his cool. Underneath this facade hides a ruthless, dangerous psychopath who will do whatever it takes to get what he wants, and he is more than willing to 'get rid' of people who stand in his way. This, coupled with the fact that he is unnervingly emotionless at times, makes him more dangerous than Eddie. Julian's current behavior is the result of a terrible childhood; he was originally a shy and meek boy abused by his family and peers, but the constant abuse he endured made him into a hollow shell of his former self, and he only felt better when he made others feel his pain. After years of acquiring a long list of offenses, he realized that constantly raging on people wasn't going to get him anywhere. He took a psychiatry class in college, and this resulted in the cool-headed dangerous person he is now. In Very Veggie Romance, it is shown that he also has severe abandonment issues, and the mere thought of being left alone drives him into fits of madness, where he relentlessly attacks anything in sight.
He will return in the upcoming Very Veggie Romance. His other appearances so far have been in "Thingamabob: Origins" where he takes the villain role, and in "Mysterious Gathering" alongside Eddie.
Cedric: He is Scallion 1's cousin, who is a renowned leader of a dangerous gang. He was arrested several times, but his mysterious appearance at Big Idea stirs up lots of questions. He is one of the three main bad guys in Very Veggie Romance.
Fiery Heart, Broken Soul
*IMPORTANT NOTE: Scarlet is not an OC of mine. She belongs to Vulaan Kulaas, who asked me to write a story on her character. The rest of the characters, she and I came up with together.
Species: Penguin-Demon Beast hybrid
Powers: Fire manipulation and some demonic powers
Final Smash: Scarlet-Soul
Scarlet is the younger sister of King Dedede, and the main character of Fiery Heart, Broken Soul. She joins the third Super Smash Brothers tournament, even though Master Hand only invited Dedede and Meta Knight, and to everyone’s surprise, she is allowed to stay in the tournament. In a matter of weeks, she ends up making two new friends and one major enemy. While many are puzzled by her appearance, the other Smashers don’t really mind, although they are puzzled by Scarlet’s tendency to shut out those who want to be close to her. They soon get their answers when she ends up unleashing her Scarlet-Soul Form on Wolf O’Donnell, who she mistakes for someone named Dr. Ver. She refuses to give her reasons to any of the Smashers, and Dedede decides to turn to Master Hand, who agrees to give the Smashers a trip through time to look through her memories. What they see there horrifies and angers them…
Scarlet may seem to be a spitfire (hence why Falco and Dedede call her as such), but her boisterous and hot-tempered nature is really a front to a very broken soul who is struggling to keep it together. As she has lost many of her closest friends, she tends to push away those who care about her, claiming that she doesn’t need a “pity party”; she also has a warped idea of love because of Dr. Ver’s abuse, and assumes immediately that every male wants her for what she calls “the usual”. Due to her being experimented on, tortured and abused for over six years, she doesn’t like being touched by any males, especially by doctors; the only exceptions she makes are for her brother Dedede and Dr. Mario, when he slowly starts to earn her trust. She also has severe aquaphobia, nyctophobia and acrophobia due to the experiments she was forced to endure. Despite her horrific experiences, she tends to look after others, and will defend the few friends she has with her life; she also gets along well with kids, hence why Lucas looks to her like an older sister.
Scarlet wields a spare hammer that her brother, Dedede, gave to her, and her powers are mostly fire based. Due to being experimented on by Nightmare, she is also half-Demon Beast. She is a middleweight, but due to her strength, she can hold off heavier fighters better than most. Her Final Smash is called Scarlet-Soul, where she taps into her power and transforms into a phoenix. This form allows more strength, but she can only hold it for a full minute before reverting back to normal.
Species: Wolf-Demon Beast hybrid
Occupation: Professor; Torturer
Dr. Ver is the main antagonist in Fiery Heart, Broken Soul, and is the reason for Scarlet's current broken state. A mad scientist who loves to toy with people, he came into the picture when he ordered a group of Demon Beasts to invade a Cappy Village, which happened to be Devane's village. The Demon Beasts captured Devane and Scarlet, along with twenty other Cappies, and Dr. Ver announced that he would be performing "experiments" that will transform them into Demon Beasts. The resulting experiments he makes them undergo are so horrific that at least three people, including Scarlet herself, were driven to suicide; Scarlet, though, survived her attempt, much to her dismay. He has an unhealthy obsession with Scarlet, enjoying torturing and raping her multiple times. His main goal is to see if a Demon Beast hybrid can reproduce with another species; to this end, he forced Devane into having sex with Scarlet, hoping that it would result in a son. When Scarlet had a daughter instead, he was enraged, but instead allowed her to keep the child for now. In what Dedede considers to be his most heinous act, he raped Scarlet, and coerced his lab assistant Peabody to do the same, resulting in Scarlet being pregnant for a second time. He is killed by Dedede, who barges into Nightmare to rescue her, but maybe he's not as dead as they all think...
Dr. Ver is a sadistic, manipulative and cold-hearted mad scientist who likes to toy with people and break them beyond repair. One of the reasons for his obsession with Scarlet was because of her strong will, which she claimed that he couldn't break. While mostly known as the cool, ineffectual doctor, he is known to have an explosive temper, and when he can't think of a solution, he solves it with his claws. He was also sickly obsessed with all forms of torture, and finds it a shame that he wasn't able to use all of them on his prisoners due to restrictions.
He also makes an appearance in chapter 2 of Mysterious Gathering.
Species: Lion-Demon Beast Hybrid
Occupation: Lab Assistant
Peabody is Dr. Ver's lab assistant, who along with his lab partner is responsible for Scarlet's current state. While he isn't as proficient in his experiments as Dr. Ver is, he loves nearly every form of torture, and loves to watch his victims beg for mercy every time he tortures them. He also has a sick fascination with Scarlet, and it's mentioned that he likes to rape her as often as Dr. Ver does. He performs equally horrific experiments on his prisoners, and is hated just as much as Dr. Ver is.
He has all the traits of Dr. Ver above, and he believes that emotion is a weakness, save for sadistic pleasure in watching his prisoners squirm and scream. It takes a lot to make him angry, but when he finally does get angry, he goes at anything with his teeth. Most of his past is unknown, but the only clue that they receive is that he was not originally a Demon Beast, hinting that he was forcibly turned into one.
The Return of the Phantom Empire
Occupation: Scientist, wizard
Powers: Darkness-based, mind manipulation
Goal: To rule the galaxy once more and end the Galactic Federation
Donkirk is a wizard who appears to be the main antagonist in The Return of the Phantom Empire. A fearsome enemy who caused the galaxy unbelievable suffering for over ten years, his faction, the Phantom Empire, was finally fragmented and destroyed by a confederacy, which was later reformed into the Galactic Federation. Donkirk and his subordinates were banished into another dimension, but due to the energy that he accumulated through his various hidden outposts, he managed to return, amass the vessels that were not destroyed, and make his way across the systems, ready for revenge. He captures one of the vessels for the Galactic Federation, known as the Vitalization, and takes its crew (which consists of Top Cat and his gang) hostage, along with the Goof-Ups’ captain, Snerdly. After the Galaxy Goof-Ups accidentally blow up the Vitalization, Donkirk retreats to his personal base, where he horrifically tortures the members of the Galactic Guardians, Top Cat in particular. He then makes a declaration of war against the Federation, which will soon send the whole galaxy teetering to chaos...
Occupation: Second-in-Command, Military Commander
Powers: Ice/water manipulation
Rokusaburo, nicknamed “Roku” by Yutaka and Donkirk, is Donkirk’s second in command and the leader of the military. Arguably the most psychotic of the three, he is responsible for the tragic murders of many of the Galactic Federation’s elite, including Admiral David Snerdly, Captain Snerdly’s father. He treats murder like a game and is quite proud of his killing skills, as well as the fact that very few have beaten him in an actual fight; the fact that Snerdly manages to best him provided a blow to his pride. Over the course of the Second Imperial War, he starts to show a softer, calmer side to himself, as well as concern when he worries about Donkirk’s state of mind as well as Yutaka’s, especially after he inadvertently caused him to have a breakdown. He is also very loyal to Donkirk, though not to the level that Yutaka is.
Occupation: Special Operations Officer and Head of Negotiations
Powers: Lightning manipulation
Yutaka is a mage who is Donkirk’s third-in-command and the negotiator. He is the coldest of the three leaders of the Phantom Empire, never showing mercy whenever he kills, and is very formal. However, it’s mentioned by both Rokusaburo and Donkirk that his icy façade is really a front to hide his tormented soul, and he is prone to having mental breakdowns where he believes himself to be in one of his past memories; Donkirk usually has to treat him for these. He is unfailingly loyal to Donkirk, and despite his icy demeanor, he gets along well with Rokusaburo, who he nicknamed “Roku” after they eventually became better friends.
The Zula Patrol: Dreamscape Crusade
Occupation: Temporary Zula Patrol member
Bonnie is an ally of the Zula Patrol who first appears in chapter 3 of The Zula Patrol: Dreamscape Crusade. A former college student from Zeeter's hometown of Zazu Falls, she has a great knowledge of the Dreamscapers and what their goal is. She offers her services to the Zula Patrol after the Legion brutally attacks Bula and the rest of the team at their own headquarters. While she does want to help the Zula Patrol, she also has another agenda in mind: to get justice for her friends' deaths, which were caused by the Dreamscapers. She is cheery and tries to be optimistic most of the time, but she's also stubborn, reckless and impulsive, traits that are sure to get her into trouble. Most of the team, minus Multo, has taken a liking to her, but Bula is somewhat wary of her, as he wants to make sure that her personal goals are not interfering with their mission to stop the Dreamscapers.
Species: Raptor Skisek
Occupation: Ruler of the Dreamscapers
Powers: Various magic and time traveling abilities
Paragor is the main antagonist of The Zula Patrol: Dreamscape Crusade. He is the leader of the Dreamscapers and claims that he will have revenge on Zula before he brings his Dreamscape to pass, and it's hinted that what he has planned will not be good for those on Zula. In order to gain more allies, he kidnapped Zeeter in order to force Bula to come to his base in order to explain to him and the rest of the Zula Patrol who he really is, as well as why he's going about this plan for revenge. What the team learns surprises them, as his story is one of a naive boy who, in trying to earn his father's love and trust, ending up getting stomped on by him--and in his anger, he became the very thing he hated. But his reasons for hating everything on Zula to the point where he wants it destroyed is a mystery the Zula Patrol will have to solve...
The Ghost of Huckleberry Hound 'Verse
David "Dead On Dave" Reeves
Occupation: Outlaw and gang leader
David Reeves, more commonly known by his outlaw name Dead On Dave, is one of Stinky Dalton's friends who deals in illegal operations and shootouts around Oregon. He agrees to help Stinky Dalton get rid of Quick Draw while they make off with Hokey Wolf, and they escaped not long after the Daltons. They ran through Hoop 'n Holler, ransacked stores and killed many people. However, he wasn't able to get far, as Ricochet Rabbit and his deputy Droop-a-Long capture him and bring him back to town. When he sees Quick Draw McGraw, he attempts to shoot him, but is quickly taken into custody. He refuses to tell anything about his gang's or the Daltons' wherabouts, and even insults Baba Looey in the process. His gang later comes to break him out of jail, and as he's leaving, he attempts to shoot Quick Draw and Ricochet. But he never gets the chance, for he is killed by Clarissa Trottingham, who was trying to stop him from shooting Quick Draw.
If a character were to be used to describe Dead On Dave, it would possibly be Top Cat--an evil, murderous version of him, that is. Dead On Dave enjoys killing people, and appears to believe that animals are inferior to humans, as evidenced by his treatment of Baba Looey, calling him a pack mule several times in the story. Dave got his name for never missing a target, and for killing said target with only one shot. Though rough and tough, he inspires loyalty in his gang; so much so that they refuse to tell Ricochet and the others anything about the Daltons' whereabouts, and want revenge on Clarissa for killing him.
He also appears in an upcoming chapter of Blazin' Trails.
Occupation: Shopkeeper's daughter, occasional assistant to Quick Draw and Ricochet, and shopkeeper
Clarissa Trottingham is a lively girl who first appears in the sequel to The Ghost of Huckleberry Hound, Have Guitar, Will Travel. She was living a peaceful life in Hoop 'n Holler with her father, helping him run his corner store. That life is thrown into turmoil when Dead On Dave's gang, who are on the run from Quick Draw and Baba Looey, ransack the store and shoot her and her father. Clarissa survived thanks to Ricochet and Quick Draw arriving on the scene immediately after the gang leaves, but her father wasn't so lucky. She later proves to be useful to Quick Draw and Ricochet when she inadvertently kills Dead On Dave before he can kill Quick Draw. She and Quick Draw later fall in love with each other, but unfortunately for them, the Daltons are planning to make their countermove...
A very clever woman who's a near-perfect balance of beauty, brains and brawn, Clarissa is able to "roll with the boys", so to speak. Her friend Felicia describes her as having a balance of both of her parents:she has her father's reservation and quick wit, but her feisty and tomboyish behavior definitely comes from her mother. While independent, talkative and capable of holding her own, she does have some insecurities, mostly concerning with her self-image; while she's somewhat proud of her strength, she also feels like a freak because many had ostracized her for it, claiming it wasn't feminine. She also tends to give in to fear, often making the worst decisions based on that emotion, and is too trusting, especially towards enemies who have "given their word".
Occupation: Practicing homemaker, aspiring authoress
Felicia Rodriguez is Clarissa's best friend, who lives in a town fifty miles away from Hoop 'n Holler. She's first mentioned by Clarissa when she mentions that she has a friend who's a burro as well, and that Baba Looey would get along with her pretty well. When Felicia first appears, she was used by the Daltons in order to keep Quick Draw distracted as well as to send a message to Clarissa. Seeing as she would possibly die if she didn't, Felicia had no choice but to do what they said. She is later "captured" by Ricochet and the others, and she tells them everything she knows about the Daltons. Afterwards, she spends her time chatting with Baba Looey, who appears to have taken a liking to her. When Clarissa is later kidnapped by the Daltons, Felicia offers to go in order to rescue her.
Felicia is much more feminine than her best friend, preferring fashion over sports, though when the need arises, she can fight just as well as Clarissa. She's kind, but does have a little mean streak on occasions, and is easily irritated. While generous, she is shown to be selfish at times when it comes to money or attaining her goals. She has a little more confidence in her abilities than Clarissa, but often she feels that she's a "third-wheel" in the team who's often overshadowed by her best friend. She also tends to be too submissive to people, as hinted by her conversation with Baba Looey when she says how she'll gladly take on a role as a housewife, as she's expected to be that above all else and to forget her dreams.
Melissa Jameson (nee Starkweather)
Melissa Starkweather is Ricochet's ex-girlfriend who was briefly mentioned in Have Guitar, Will Travel by Ricochet. The two of them were deeply in love, but it's mentioned that she left him due to having another suitor at the time: a rabbit named Curtis, who was a former criminal who changed his ways after getting out of jail. Much to Ricochet's dismay, she chose Curtis over him because she didn't want to come between him and his job, which was his passion at the time, and ended up marrying another man and had a son with him. Although Ricochet mentions that they broke up amicably, he never truly got over her, as he hadn't loved another girl since. Trouble with her husband sends her running back to Ricochet for help, which kicks off the plot of Ricocheted Rendezvous, where she officially appears.
Melissa is polite, soft-spoken and proper, although she has a bit of a playful streak that she only reserves for her boyfriends. While she believes that it's not proper, she isn't above using her feminine charms to distract other men to get what she wants. She does tend to be fearful, and is often second-guessing herself and her decisions, which is why it took her so long to come to Ricochet for help. While she's motherly and kind to her friends, her anger is fearsome, and even Ricochet is wary of it. She seeks to find the good in others, but won't hesitate to cut them from her life if she fails to find that in them.
Blazin' Trails universe
*IMPORTANT NOTE: Serena Falconeri, Drag-a-Long Coyote and Lucky are characters that Vulaan Kulaas created--she asked me to come up with the backstories for them.
Occupation: Caretaker and Chef (Blazin' Trails)
Denise Falconeri is Droop-a-Long's girlfriend. She's a homemaker who lives with her parents in Oregon; her father's a chef who hopes to open his own restaraunt chain, and her mother's a baker who ran her own bakery for a while. Her family's fairly wealthy, and more than often suitors come to her for her money. While there were a few that she liked, she never found a boy who interested her. Her first serious relationship was with Ricochet Rabbit, who she met while he was training to be a sheriff; she took a liking to him as he was one of the few that actually liked her for who she was, rather than for her wealth. For three years, they dated and they were going to get married. However, he ended up leaving her at the altar in order to catch a criminal, and he never came back. That made up Denise's mind for her, as she realized that she couldn't keep him away from his job. For a time, she held a grudge against Ricochet, but she later forgave him. Years later, she met Droop-a-Long Coyote, her ex's deputy, while he was on the way home after Ricochet once again left him in the dust. He helped her with a difficult delivery job, as she had injured herself, and as a treat she took him out to dinner the next night. The two ended up taking a liking to each other, but Denise, believing that the standards would break them apart, attempted to end their budding friendship. Droop-a-Long's confession, however, changed her mind, and for a time they met whenever they could, although they remained as friends at Denise's insistence; she was aware of his feelings for her, but she was unsure of hers towards him.
They remained this way for three months until she realized that she liked Droop-a-Long more than just as a friend. She once again considered breaking it off, but realized that she didn't want to end her relationship. They decided to pursue a secret relationship due to the societal standards (and Denise's mother's hatred of coyotes). She later moved away to California to help her father with his new restaurant, but she and Droop-a-Long still keep up their relationship through letter. In chapter 5 of Blazin' Trails, "Rapid Romance", their relationship is revealed to Ricochet after the sheriff questioned his deputy about his habits and Droop-a-Long caves in. At first, Ricochet isn't too happy about his deputy keeping this a secret from him, but he allows them to stay together, mentioning that if there was anybody he'd trust Denise with, it'd be Droop-a-Long. He later comes around and becomes their staunchest supporter and defender, tries to get the two of them hitched (frequently), and enjoys observing them from afar, of course. Denise and Droop-a-Long are later separated temporarily when Denise's parents discover their daughter's relationship and force her to break it off, but Ricochet stands up for his friend and tells them of his experiences with Droop-a-long and how he would never hurt anybody. Her parents relent and allow Denise to continue to date Droop-a-Long, much to both of their happiness. Three months after getting back together, the two are engaged (thanks to Ricochet walking over to Denise and flat out asking her to marry his deputy) and they get married.
She's ladylike, friendly and composed due to a wealthy upbringing, but her mature behavior hides her adventurous spirit. Ricochet and later Droop-a-Long mention that once this side of her appears, it's very hard for it to go away. She's also very flirty around her boyfriends, and seems to enjoy making Droop-a-Long blush with her sly comments. She's not afraid to use her feminine charms on other male strangers in order to get what she wants, though she knows when to tone them down. She does have a quick temper (though not as quick as Ricochet's), is rebellious in some cases, and tends to hold grudges towards those who have wronged her, although she is capable of forgiving. She is prone to being envious of other people for what they have, to the point where it consumes her, and can become jealous of girls who are close to her current lover. However, she does know when to rein herself in, and is quick to apologize for her behavior.
Occupation: Businessman, later becomes an outlaw
Dave Reeves is a man from the rich part of Hoop 'n Holler. He runs a wool factory, and as such he's very rich, and so is his business partner and associate, Chuck, who merged his company with Dave's in order to save it. While he and Chuck appear to be making honest money, Dave actually has illegal connections spanning across the West and has his own gang, which he uses to do his dirty work. He and Chuck dress down Droop-a-Long in front of most of the town and make him cry, which results in Ricochet beating both of them up. Angered, Dave decides to get revenge on both Ricochet and Droop-a-Long by having Ricochet lose his job as sheriff and having his men kill Droop-a-Long. Aside from a misunderstanding by one of his men, the plan works until one of his men, Zeb, mentions that Ricochet was released from jail due to Droop-a-Long getting him out. With that knowledge, Dave plans on offing Ricochet in the midst of his grief for Droop-a-Long, but a twist in the case causes his plans to be ruined.
Dave pretends to be a nice person who is courteous to others, but that is only a facade--he has a very nasty personality and isn't above harassing and blackmailing people to get what he wants, as Droop-a-Long can attest to. He has a hatred for Droop-a-Long which is a mix between extreme jealousy and racism, and between him and Chuck, he is the greater of the two evils. He has anger issues as well as an inflated ego, which has been used to his disadvantage several times.
Occupation: Dave's business partner, later becomes an outlaw
Chuck Carstairs is Dave's business partner from the same side of Hoop 'n Holler. When his factory was going out of business, he merged his company with Dave's, and by doing so, he recovered from his losses and became one of the richest men in town next to Dave, who became his business partner and friend. He and Dave get beat up by Ricochet after they dress down Droop-a-Long in front of most of the town and make him cry, which brings them into trouble. Angered, Dave decides to get revenge on both Ricochet and Droop-a-Long by having Ricochet lose his job as sheriff and having his men kill Droop-a-Long. Chuck, although just as sour and angry, doesn't really agree with Dave's plans, but he goes along with them anyway.
Although he's not much of a talker like Dave, Chuck doesn't hide his rudeness or sarcastic nature under a facade like Dave does; in fact, it's mentioned that he's the one of the unlikable people in town, to the point that it's a miracle that Dave tolerates him. He can talk a good fight, but when push comes to shove, he almost immediately cowers away. Between him and Dave, he is the lesser of the two evils, and he appears to have more of a conscience (which is what Jeb uses against him in jail) although he is capable of being just as bad as Dave is.
Zebadiah "Zeb" Forrest
Zeb is Dave's henchman and the second-in-command of Dave's gang, who's often called upon to lead the gang in Dave's missions. He's got a meager job shining shoes, and the little bit of money he earns is barely enough to feed his wife and their three children. Desperate, Zeb became a member of Dave's gang upon hearing of the pay he'd be getting in exchange for his services, and he keeps this job a secret from his family, including his younger twin brother, Jeb (see below). He at first fails to kill Droop-a-Long when he's ordered to, but later orders the other men to beat the coyote when Dave threatens to cut his check.
Originally thought to be "the good one" out of the twins, Zeb's kind, genteel demeanor is really a front to his cowardly, nervous and paranoid personality, and unlike his brother Jeb, he's rather shy and doesn't like to talk much. He at first appears to be fearful and not very bright, as he messes up the order to kill Droop-a-Long; he also doesn't like killing others, and he can't bring himself to do the job, instead ordering his men to. Dave often notes that Zeb is the only one of his gang with a conscience, and that it can be a bother sometimes. However, Zeb can become frightfully dangerous when the need arises, and when he musters the will to do something, he will do it, especially when money is on the line.
Jebadiah "Jeb" Forrest
Occupation: Farmer, later junior deputy to Ricochet Rabbit
Jeb is a farmer who was one of Droop-a-Long's other friends outside of Ricochet. Droop-a-Long saved him from drowning, and from then on the two became friends, although not as close as Ricochet and Droop-a-Long. Unlike his older twin brother Zeb, he's unmarried and works as a farmer on his father's ranch outside of Hoop 'n Holler, although he still comes into town every now and then. He's first seen sticking up for Droop-a-Long at Town Hall, and when Droop-a-Long disappears, he asks Ricochet to get to the bottom of the case and get justice for Droop-a-Long, as he believes that something bigger is going on. Ricochet, although broken by what happened to his best friend, agrees to this after hearing Jeb's theory, and decides to appoint Jeb as his junior deputy in order to help him on the case. Jeb's first time working with Ricochet is pretty difficult at first due to both his grief and his unwillingness to trust him, but over the course of the story, Jeb proves his worth as a junior deputy. He will appear sporadically in the stories following the "Protector" arc.
Jeb is not like his older brother, who many called the "good one". He is outgoing, friendly, and likes to talk a lot, although it's hinted that his mouth can get him into a lot of trouble. He's very empathetic, and it doesn't take a lot to bring out his caring side; like Zeb, he has a soft heart, though he's more willing to show it to others. He also tends to be rather easily embarrassed, particularly when people compliment him on a job well done. Ricochet effectively describes him as a more talkative Droop-a-Long, minus the long fuse; it does take Jeb a little bit to get angry, but once that anger is unleashed, it takes a lot for him to cool off. He admires Ricochet and calls him a hero, although sometimes he places people on high pedestals, as he did with his brother Zeb.
Hop-a-Long "Hoppy" Coyote
Occupation: Chef (Blazin' Trails and modern-day universes)
Hop-a-Long Coyote is Droop-a-Long's older brother who appears in both Blazin' Trails and other stories featuring the H-B characters. He first appears in "Sworn Duty"(which has yet to be posted), where he congratulates Droop-a-Long on a job well done after his arrest of Mad Matt. He's married and has a son, Tag-a-Long Coyote, who is Droop-a-Long's nephew. In both Blazin' Trails and a few other stories where he's mentioned, Hop-a-Long works as a chef (sous-chef in the modern day AUs) at one of the restaurants in Shadybrook.
Described by Droop-a-Long as a taller version of Ricochet, the contrast between Hop and Droop is so profound that many remark that it's hard to believe that they're brothers. Hop's very excitable, takes pride in his achievements, and somewhat free-spirited, as well as much more athletic; he can jump higher than Ricochet can due to his height, something that Ricochet is jealous of. Hop-a-Long has a much quicker temper than his brother, can be very impatient and is rather forgetful, even moreso than Droop-a-Long. He is a frequent borrower, and is constantly asking people for money, although he tends to handle it rather irresponsibly.
Sing-a-Long Coyote is Droop-a-Long's younger brother who is mentioned very briefly by Droop-a-Long in the short "Family Matters" (which has yet to be posted), when Ricochet meets his family. He lives with his parents, Drag-a-Long and Selena Coyote, in their small house outside of Shadybrook, and he works as a shopkeeper in one of the stores in town. He has a natural affinity for music and can play several instruments, including the flute and the trumpet (the former of which he's very good at), and loves to sing to just about anything, hence his name. When he's not working, he performs in a barbershop quartet as a soprano.
Sing-a-Long is similar to his older brother Hop-a-Long in that he's more energetic and outgoing than Droop-a-Long and his younger sister Betty Coyote, although he knows when to tone it down when others are around. He tends to be rather blunt about his opinions, and sometimes he offends people without meaning to. It takes him a while to notice that he's hurt someone else's feelings, but once he does, he tries to make amends as quickly as possible. He believes that he was born to be in the spotlight and as such he can think highly of himself at times, as well as having an easily bruised ego. His temperament is similar to his older brother Droop-a-Long's, although he's much quicker to anger than he is.
Betty "Bee" Coyote
Occupation: Assistant baker (day job), Saloon gal (night job)
Betty Coyote, nicknamed "Bee" by most of her family, is Droop-a-Long's youngest sibling and the only girl aside from her mother. She, along with her older brother Sing-a-Long, appears in "Family Matters". She's the only member of the family who doesn't care for Ricochet mostly due to how he treated her brother before, but also for another reason--she works at a saloon in town known as The Black Hat as a call girl in order to earn extra money, a job that her parents don't know about. In Shadybrook, the legal age to work at such a place is twenty-one, but Betty lied about her age to the head of the establishment; the manager believed her thanks to her mature looks, but she's constantly in fear of her parents finding out, or worse, her older brothers Hop and Droop.
Betty is rather quiet and withdrawn, preferring to keep to herself and not interact with people. She considers herself to be the most mature out of her siblings, but she has the shortest temper, as she's quickly irritated by the slightest things. Out of all her siblings, she's close to Droop-a-Long, who shares a similar personality with her (shy and quiet at times). As a call girl, though, she's much more flirty and daring, and isn't afraid to use her charms to get her out of a situation. While she acts bold and brave, she really does have a fearful nature underneath the facade.
Occupation: Postmistress (Blazin' Trails and modern-day universes)
Melissa Starkweather is one of Ricochet's many ex-girlfriends who makes a few sporadic appearances in Blazin' Trails and the modern day universe. While her character is the same as Ricocheted Rendezvous, her background is different in the Blazin' Trails universe.
In Blazin' Trails, she and Ricochet met during his tenure as Gopher Gulch's sheriff, and she was working as the town's postmistress. Ricochet had a massive crush on her, but she turned him down multiple times due to his passion for his job, which was known throughout town as his "one true love" at the time, claiming that she didn't want to settle down with someone who was wrapped up in his job. She later fell in love with a rabbit named Curtis, and later moved away to be with him. Even though he later dated other girls, Ricochet never truly got over her. Her romance with Curtis was short-lived, however, and she spent years trying to find love, with no success. Years would pass before she drifted into Hoop 'n Holler on the hopes that she'd meet him again, as she now returned his feelings. Her return is documented in "Wingman" (which has yet to be posted).
Serena Marie Falconeri
Outlaw Name: Phantom Killer
Serena Falconeri is Denise's older sister, and the leader of a gang of outlaws, although at the beginning of her career she traveled solo. She's the second oldest child of the Falconeri family; she has an older brother, Alfonso Jr., and Denise is her younger sister. Serena enjoyed the privileges a girl her standard enjoyed back then alongside her siblings, but it wasn't paradise for her; she hated the rich life and the standards imposed upon her, something that she and her sister have in common. In addition to this, she's the black sheep of her family--her grey fur was seen as a bad omen, and as such, she was treated poorly, even among her own family aside from Denise. Her conniving, manipulative nature didn't help matters and her relations with her family worsened into adulthood. Her family had planned to marry her off to a rich suitor in hopes that she'd finally be "tamed", but unfortunately for them, she found someone else--a kindhearted but homeless rabbit named Marigold. When her parents heard of this and his intentions to marry her, they threatened to disown her if she went through with the plans.
Having enough of her family's wishes, Serena left regardless, married the man she loved, and eventually moved farther out West to settle down. A year later, the two of them had a son together, named James. Things were relatively peaceful for eight years, and she enjoyed a comfortable life with her husband and their son, but when Marigold accumulated huge debts, she used her shrewd ways to con people out of their money to pay them off. It worked for a few years until one client in particular, going by the name of "Big D", ordered a well-known hitman to go after the family. Ricochet, who was sheriff in the precinct at the time, gave chase, but he ended up losing the criminal's trail. It proved disastrous--the man murdered both Serena's husband and her son, both of whom she adored dearly. Filled with sorrow, fury and bitterness, Serena erased all traces of her original upbringing and decided to fully embrace her dark side--all the while swearing to one day get revenge on Ricochet for the death of her family.
Serena eventually met Drag-a-Long Coyote, another famed outlaw who happened to be in town that evening. The two's meeting got off to an ugly start, and it even resulted in a fight that almost had Drag-a-Long kill her right then and there; however, she ended up defeating him. Despite both of them vowing to kill each other one day, they were also simultaneously attracted to each other; for Serena, he was one of the few outlaws she'd met who shared her interests, as well as the fact that she was the only one who'd seen his softer side. However, she denied it and at first wanted nothing to do with him other than to receive information about the gang that was responsible for killing her husband and son; his advances, however, were making things difficult. That changed when a heated moment between the two resulted in them spending the night together. From then on, the two had a rather wild and passionate romance, but it ended when Serena became pregnant. When she had her son later that spring, she realized that neither of them could take care of the boy, as both of their paths would kill him. She left the boy in an orphanage; due to her hurrying to escape town before getting caught, she never named her son. After leaving town, she went on her own path, forming her own group of outlaws and causing havoc across the West.
Serena is cold, ruthless and kills without mercy. However, she's also a manipulative, conniving woman that can put a coyote or fox to shame. She covers her tracks, and she acts like she's a sweet young woman but she won't hesitate to kill you once your purpose has ended. She enjoys using 'herself' to get what she wants, and she's well known to kill a man after 'spending a few nights' with him. However, she makes it look like he kills himself so in other words she has evaded the law for a decade, an impressive feat. Her flaws are is that once she has made you her target, she won't stop hunting you down until you're dead. It takes a long time to anger her, and once you do, you better run. Another flaw is that her hatred for a certain town sheriff is legendary in the outlaw community, due to the fact he failed to catch a criminal that wound up killing her ten year old son.
Her full history is detailed in the short "Rise of the Phantom" and in the special "A Wicked Good Time". She's slated to appear in another arc, titled "The Phantom Killer".
Outlaw Name: Savage
Occupation: Outlaw, gang leader
Drag-a-Long is Droop-a-Long's oldest brother and the leader of a dangerous gang of outlaws known as Red Scorpion--he's legendary in the outlaw community for being one of the few gang leaders who can give the Dalton Gang a challenge. As the oldest of five children, Drag-a-Long was expected to carry on his father's shop, but the elder son had a different agenda in mind--he craved adventure and excitement, and found none of that in running a store. When he was eight years old, an outlaw by the name of Fang rode into town and shot and killed three people during a bank robbery; the sheriff, despite his best efforts, was unable to stop the criminal. Fascinated, Drag-a-Long started learning how to use guns, as well as building up a knowledge of weapons and how to effectively kill people. As a child, he was a troublemaker, but in his teenage years, he was very rebellious, breaking into stores and vandalizing things. He and his group caused so much trouble that his father disowned him and kicked him out of the family, followed by the town banning him from ever returning. Before leaving Shadybrook for good, he told his little brother, Droop-a-Long, that one day they would meet again, but it wouldn't be pretty.
His womanizing tendencies brought him into the company of Serena Falconeri, another famed outlaw who happened to be in town that evening. The two's meeting got off to an ugly start, and it even resulted in a fight that almost had Drag-a-Long kill her right then and there. Despite feeling both humiliated and angered that he'd been beaten up by a rabbit, and both of them vowing to kill each other one day, they were also simultaneously attracted to each other; for Drag-a-Long, she was one of the few women he'd met who matched his intelligence. Serena at first wanted nothing to do with him other than to receive information about the gang that was responsible for killing her husband and son, but that changed when a heated moment between the two resulted in them spending the night together. From then on, the two had a rather wild and passionate romance, but it ended when Serena became pregnant. When she had her son later that spring, she realized that neither of them could take care of the boy, as both of their paths would kill him. She left the boy in an orphanage, and later disappeared; two years later, Drag-a-Long came upon the young boy during another one of his sprees through town and discovered that he was his son. Drag-a-Long took the boy in, but his anger at losing the one woman he truly did love due to his son is what caused him to start abusing the boy.
Drag-a-Long is a very manipulative, controlling, and abusive person, and takes crap from nobody. He enjoys causing mayhem and killing people mostly out of the pleasure of seeing the people's terrified faces, and sometimes goes on robbing sprees at random just to get a kick out of it. Due to the sheer brutality of his killings, especially when he gets "in the zone", he earned the outlaw name Savage. He likes to be on top in a situation, and won't hesitate to get rid of people who try to overstep their authority or talk back to him. He's also said to be credited with the term "bed and kill", due to his occasional tendency to kill a woman he's spent the night with after he's done with her. His arrogance is a major flaw, however; he's been caught twice due to believing that the police would be scared to come after him. Despite this, it's hinted that he does have some standards (though they can be skewed), and he has a softer side, but it's very rare when he shows it.
His full history is detailed in the shorts "Bad Blood", "Savage" and the special "A Wicked Good Time".
Outlaw Name: The Kid With No Name
Lucky, originally known as "The Kid With No Name", is the half-breed son of Drag-a-Long Coyote and Serena Falconeri. While he physically looks like his mother, he has the claws and fangs of a coyote, as well as a love of meat. He was placed in an orphanage by Serena a few days after his birth in the hopes that someone else would take care of him, as her lifestyle as well as Drag-a-Long's would get him killed. He spent two years growing up in the orphanage, but due to the stigma against half-breeds and rumors floating around about his mother, he was never adopted and remained nameless. He then learned of his parentage, but not in the way he originally intended: Drag-a-Long came upon the young boy during another one of his sprees through town and discovered that he was his son. Drag-a-Long took the boy with him, but when he learned about the reason Serena disappeared, his anger at losing the one woman he truly did love due to his son is what caused him to start abusing the boy. To add insult to his injuries, Drag-a-Long kept him nameless, saying cruel things about him and tried to force him to kill, but to no avail. Drag-a-Long, fed up and filled with anger, left his son to die in a saloon that he'd robbed and destroyed, saying that he didn't need him anymore. Thankfully, the boy was rescued by Ricochet and Droop-a-Long, who were tracking Drag-a-Long's last known location and came across him. Ricochet, upon learning of the boy's history, decides to finally give him a name: Lucky, due to how fortunate he was to survive this long under Drag-a-Long's care. He then decides to become Lucky's guardian until he can find a family for him.
Despite at first feeling out of place in town, Lucky eventually warms up to Ricochet and eventually Droop-a-Long and Denise when he learns that none of them wish to hurt him. Lucky also becomes close to Ricochet, who he starts to see more as a father figure. While Ricochet starts to warm up to Lucky and treats him like his own son, his personal fears about taking on such a large responsibility, including feeling that he'd be a failure of a father, keeps him from officially adopting him. Droop-a-Long's encouragement, however, makes him change his mind, and Ricochet adopts Lucky as his own son.
Marigold "Goldie" Edwards
Age: 26 (at time of death)
Occupation: Window cleaner
Marigold Edwards is Serena's late husband. The reason for his girly sounding name is because his parents, who already had eight sons before him, wanted a girl as their last child, and had picked out the name "Marigold" for their daughter; when he was born, they simply decided to name him Marigold anyway due to the dark gold hue of his fur. He was subjected to a lot of teasing as a child, earning the embarrassing nickname "Goldilocks", as well as being treated unfairly by his father and mother for not being the girl that they wanted, but he carried on the best he could. He later got a job as a window cleaner to help support his family, which was struggling to make ends meet, but his meager earnings weren't enough. In his teenage years, he met Serena Falconeri, a female rabbit who, coincidentally, was also the black sheep of her family. Despite laughing at his name and calling him "Glittering Goldie" to make fun of him, Serena took a liking to the earnest, hardworking Marigold, and he was attracted to her; it was mentioned that he was the only one who put up with her rebellious antics, and sometimes even joined in.
His parents didn't fully approve of the romance, but Serena's parents especially didn't want their oldest daughter marrying into a family from the "wrong side of the city", despite Marigold's kindhearted nature. He still offered to marry her anyway, which caught fire with both families. Marigold was ready to give up on Serena, only for her to show up on his doorstep, claiming that she was leaving her family to marry him no matter what. Tired of hearing from his family, he and Serena left California, got married in the state of Nevada, and later settled down in a small town, where he eventually took over as the owner of the general store. A year later, he and Serena had a son named James Falconeri-Edwards. For eight years, both Marigold and Serena enjoyed a comfortable life, until issues with the store forced him to take out large loans to repair the store. When his debts became too large to handle, he considered selling the store, but Serena decided to take the matter into her own hands, using her shrewd ways to con people out of their money to pay them off. At first, Marigold didn't approve, but seeing as it was shrinking his debts, he decided to keep his complaints to himself. It worked for a few years until one client of Serena's in particular, going by the name of "Big D", ordered a well-known hitman to go after his family after learning that he'd been swindled. Ricochet, who was sheriff in the precinct at the time, gave chase, but he ended up losing the criminal's trail. It proved disastrous--the man murdered both Marigold and James; James' body was never found, but Marigold was found on the front porch of the house, riddled with holes. Marigold was buried outside of Nevada, and Serena kept two keepsakes from both her husband and son--a garnet necklace that he'd given to her, and James' neckerchief--on her person after the murders. Their deaths were the final breaking point for Serena, as it drove her to become one of the most ruthless outlaws in the West.
H-B 'Verse (have to do the same thing I did for Veggie Tales for this one)
Occupation: Caretaker (Blazin' Trails), Teacher (Modern-day)
Denise Falconeri is Droop-a-Long's girlfriend in the modern-day universe. While her character is the same, her background has some major differences, which warrants a spot on this list.
The modern-day version of this character is a third grade teacher who is Ricochet's childhood friend. It's mentioned that he did have a crush on her when he was a boy, but the two remained as friends into adulthood. Droop-a-Long's nephew, Tag-a-Long Coyote, attends her class. Her first meeting with Droop-a-Long is different here; Droop's brother, Hop-a-Long, asked him to attend his son's parent-teacher conference, since he was busy with work. Droop agreed, and was surprised to see a young teacher there; he had originally assumed that she was an older person. After the conference, Tag-a-Long notes that his uncle likes Denise, and though Droop-a-Long tries to deny it, he does try to make up excuses in order to go and see her again, such as looking for times where he can fill in for his brother in order to go with Tag-a-Long to the school. After a while, he does muster the courage to ask her on a date, and she agrees. The two end up enjoying each other's company, and decide to start dating. Once again, they keep their relationship secret due to the societal standards, though Droop-a-Long does wish that he could show everyone how much he loves her. Their relationship is revealed publicly (albeit by accident) on Christmas Eve, when Ricochet and the rest of the guests catch them kissing under the mistletoe. At first, Droop-a-Long is worried about his friends not accepting their relationship. However, Ricochet and the others congratulate them and wish them the best of luck, much to the couple's delight.

Mature Eyes Only
This may make you stop and think... because it's very true
Why do we sleep in church, but when the ceremony is over we suddenly wake up?
Why is it so hard to talk about God, but so easy to talk about sex?
Why are we so bored when we look at a Christian magazine, but find it easy to read Playboy?
Why is it so easy to ignore a Godly Myspace message, yet we repost the nasty ones?
Why are churches getting smaller, but bars and clubs are growing?
Think about it- are you going to repost this?

One day, when I was a freshman in high school, I saw a kid from my class was walking home from school.His name was Kyle. It looked like he was carrying all of his books.I thought to myself, 'Why would anyone bring home all his books on a Friday? He must really be a nerd.' I had quite a weekend planned (parties and a football game with my friends tomorrow afternoon), so I shrugged my shoulders and went on. As I was walking, I saw a bunch of kids running toward him. They ran at him, knocking all his books out of his arms and tripping him so he landed in the dirt. His glasses went flying, and I saw them land in the grass about ten feet from him. He looked up and I saw this terrible sadness in his eyes. My heart went out to him. So, I jogged over to him as he crawled around looking for his glasses, and I saw a tear in his eye. As I handed him his glasses, I said, 'Those guys are jerks. They really should get lives.' He looked at me and said, 'Hey thanks!' There was a big smile on his face.It was one of those smiles that showed real gratitude.I helped him pick up his books, and asked him where he lived. As it turned out, he lived near me, so I asked him why I had never seen him before. He said he had gone to private school before now. I would have never hung out with a private school kid before. We talked all the way home, and I carried some of his books. He turned out to be a pretty cool kid. I asked him if he wanted to play a little football with my friends. He said yes.We hung out all weekend and the more I got to know Kyle, the more I liked him, and my friends thought the same of him. Monday morning came, and there was Kyle with the huge stack of books again.I stopped him and said, 'Boy, you are gonna really build some serious muscles with this pile of books everyday!' He just laughed and handed me half the books. Over the next four years, Kyle and I became best friends.. When we were seniors we began to think about college. Kyle decided on Georgetown and I was going to Duke. I knew that we would always be friends, that the miles would never be a problem. He was going to be a doctor and I was going for business on a football scholarship. Kyle was valedictorian of our class. I teased him all the time about being a nerd. He had to prepare a speech for graduation.I was so glad it wasn't me having to get up there and speak. Graduation day, I saw Kyle. He looked great.He was one of those guys that really found himself during high school. He filled out and actually looked good in glasses. He had more dates than I had and all the girls loved him. Boy, sometimes I was jealous! Today was one of those days.I could see that he was nervous about his speech. So, I smacked him on the back and said, 'Hey, big guy, you'll be great!' He looked at me with one of those looks (the really grateful one) and smiled. 'Thanks,' he said. As he started his speech, he cleared his throat, and began, 'Graduation is a time to thank those who helped you make it through those tough years. Your parents, your teachers, your siblings, maybe a coach... but mostly your friends... I am here to tell all of you that being a friend to someone is the best gift you can give them. I am going to tell you a story.' I just looked at my friend with disbelief as he told the story of the first day we met. He had planned to kill himself over the weekend. He talked of how he had cleaned out his locker so his Mom wouldn't have to do it later and was carrying his stuff home. He looked hard at me and gave me a little smile. 'Thankfully, I was saved. My friend saved me from doing the unspeakable.' I heard the gasp go through the crowd as this handsome, popular boy told us all about his weakest moment. I saw his Mom and dad looking at me and smiling that same grateful smile. Not until that moment did I realize it's depth. Never underestimate the power of your actions. With one small gesture you can change a person's life. For better or for worse. God puts us all in each others lives to impact one another in some way. Look for God in others. You now have two choices, you can :1) Put this on your profile or 2) Forget you read this and act like it didn't touch your heart. As you can see, I took choice number 1. 'Friends are angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly.'
This is a story about God. Read if you believe in him, and read even if you don't.
A teenage girl about 17 named Diane had gone to visit some friends one evening and time passed quickly as each shared their various experiences of the past year. She ended up staying longer than planned, and had to walk home alone. She wasn't afraid because it was a small town and she lived only a few blocks away.
As she walked along under the tall elm trees, Diane asked God to keep her safe from harm and danger. When she reached the alley, which was a short cut to her house, she decided to take it. However, halfway down the alley she noticed a man standing at the end as though he were waiting for her. She became uneasy and began to pray, asking for God's protection. Instantly a comforting feeling of quietness and security wrapped round her, she felt as though someone was walking with her. When she reached the end of the alley, she walked right past the man and arrived home safely.
The following day, she read in the newspaper that a young girl had been killed in the same alley just twenty minutes after she had been there. Feeling overwhelmed by this tragedy and the fact that it could have been her, she began to weep. Thanking the Lord for her safety and to help this young woman, she decided to go to the police station. She felt she could recognize the man, so she told them her story. The police asked her if she would be willing to look at a lineup to see if she could identify him. She agreed and immediately pointed out the man she had seen in the alley the night before. When the man was told he had been identified, he immediately broke down and confessed. The officer thanked Diane for her bravery and asked if there was anything they could do for her. She asked if they would ask the man one question. Diane was curious as to why he had not attacked her. When the policeman asked him, he answered, "Because she wasn't alone. She had two tall men walking on either side of her." Amazingly, whether you believe or not, you're never alone. Did you know that 98 of teenagers will not stand up for God, and 93 of the people that read this won’t repost it?
Repost this if you truly belive in God.
Footprints In the Sand:
One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord. Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky. In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand. Sometimes there were two sets of footprints, other times there were one set of footprints.
This bothered me because I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints.
So I said to the Lord, “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life there have only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, you have not been there for me?”
The Lord smiled and replied, “The times when you have seen only one set of footprints in the sand, is when I carried you.”
A girl her boyfriend were speeding over 150kmp/h on a motorcycle
Girl: Slow down, I'm scared!
Guy: No, this is fun.
Girl: No, it's not. Please, I'm scared.
Guy: Then tell me you love me.
Girl: I love you, now slow down!
Guy: Now give me a big hug.
She gives him a big hug
Guy: Can you take off my helmet and put it on yourself, it's bothering me.
In the newspaper the next day, a motorcycle had crashed into a building because of break failure. Two people were on it and only one survived. The truth was that halfway down the road, the guy realized his break wasn't working but he didn't want the girl to know. Instead he had her hug him and tell him one last time that she loved him. Then he had her put on his helmet so that she would live even if he died. Copy this onto your profile if you would do the same thing for someone you love.

I was walking around in a Target store, when I saw a Cashier hand this little boy some money back.
The boy couldn't have been more than 5 or 6 years old.
The Cashier said, 'I'm sorry, but you don't have enough money to buy this doll.'
Then the little boy turned to the old woman next to him: ''Granny, are you sure I don't have enough money?''
The old lady replied: ''You know that you don't have enough money to buy this doll, my dear.''
Then she asked him to stay there for just 5 minutes while she went to look a round. She left quickly.
The little boy was still holding the doll in his hand.
Finally, I walked toward him and I asked him who he wished to give this doll to.
'It's the doll that my sister loved most and wanted so much for Christmas.
She was sure that Santa Claus would bring it to her.'
I replied to him that maybe Santa Claus would bring it to her after all, and not to worry.
But he replied to me sadly. 'No, Santa Claus can't bring it to her where she is now. I have to give the doll to my mommy so that she can give it to my sister when she goes there.'
His eyes were so sad while saying this. 'My Sister has gone to be with God. Daddy says that Mommy is going to see God very soon too, so I thought that she could take the doll with her to give it to my sister.''
My heart nearly stopped.
The little boy looked up at me and said: 'I told daddy to tell mommy not to go yet. I need her to wait until I come back from the mall.'
Then he showed me a very nice photo of him where he was laughing. He then told me 'I want mommy to take my picture with her so she won't forget me.'
'I love my mommy and I wish she doesn't have to leave me, but daddy says that she has to go to be with my little sister.'
Then he looked again at the doll with sad eyes, very quietly.
I quickly reached for my wallet and said to the boy. 'Suppose we check
'OK' he said, 'I hope I do have enough.' I added some of my money to his with out him seeing and we started to count it. There was enough for the doll and even some spare money.
The little boy said: 'Thank you God for giving me enough money!'
Then he looked at me and added, 'I asked last night before I went to sleep for God to make sure I had enough money to buy this doll, so that mommy could give It to my sister. He heard me!''
'I also wanted to have enough money to buy a white rose for my mommy, but I didn't dare to ask God for too much. But He gave me enough to buy the doll and a white rose.''
'My mommy loves white roses.'
A few minutes later, the old lady returned and I left with my basket.
I finished my shopping in a totally different state from when I started.
I couldn't get the little boy out of my mind.
Then I remembered a local news paper article two days ago, which mentioned a drunk man in a truck, who hit a car occupied by a young woman and a little girl.
The little girl died right away, and the mother was left in a critical state. The family had to decide whether to pull the plug on the life-sustaining machine, because the young woman would not be able to recover from the coma.
Was this the family of the little boy?
Two days after this encounter with the little boy, I read in the news paper that the young woman had passed away.
I couldn't stop myself as I bought a bunch of white roses and I went to the funeral home where the body of the young woman was exposed for people to see and make last wishes before her burial.
She was there, in her coffin, holding a beautiful white rose in her hand with the photo of the little boy and the doll placed over her chest.
I left the place, teary-eyed, feeling that my life had been changed for ever. The love that the little boy had for his mother and his sister is still, to this day, hard to imagine.
And in a fraction of a second, a drunk driver had taken all this away from him.

This is a story about a white man and a black man. The white man said, "Colored people are not allowed here." The black man turned around and stood up. He then said: "Listen sir...when I was born I was BLACK, when I grew up I was BLACK. When I'm sick I'm BLACK. When I go in the sun I'm BLACK. When I'm sick I'm BLACK. When I'm cold I 'm Black. When I die I'll be BLACK. But you sir, when you're born you're PINK, When you grow up you're WHITE, When you're sick you're GREEN, When you go in the sun you turn RED, When you're cold you turn BLUE, And when you die you turn PURPLE. And you have the nerve to call me colored?"
The black man then sat back down and the white man walked away...Post this on your profile if you hate racism.
He had no servants, yet they called Him Master...
He had no degree, yet they called Him Teacher...
He had no medicine, yet they called Him Healer...
He had no army, yet kings feared Him...
He won no military battles, yet He conquered the World...
He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him...
He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today

If you believe in Jesus Christ put everything that you have just read in your profile. If you chose to post it, then you should be proud of yourself. If you just ignore this, remember that in the Bible it says if you deny me, I will deny you in front of my Father in the gates of Heaven.
OBITUARY FOR THE LATE MR. COMMON SENSE
Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.
He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as: Knowing when to come in out of the rain; why the early bird gets the worm; Life isn't always fair; and Maybe it was my fault.
Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge). His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6 year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.
Common Sense declined even further when schools were required to get Parental consent to administer Calpol, sun lotion or a band-aid to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.
Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband; churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.
Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.
Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.
Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason.
He is survived by his 3 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, Someone Else Is To Blame, and I'm A Victim. Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.
Mommy. I am only 8 inches long, but I have all my organs. I love the sound of your voice. Every time I hear it I wave my arms and legs.The sound of your heart beat is my lullaby.
Mommy. Today I learned how to suck my thumb. If you could see me you could definitly see I'm a baby. I'm not big enough to survive outside my home though. It is so nice and warm here.
You know what Mommy? I'm a boy!! I hope that makes you happy. I always want you to be happy. I don't like it when you cry. You sound so sad. It makes me sad too...and I cry, even though you can't hear me.
Mommy. My hair is starting to grow. It is very short and fine, but I will have a lot of it. I spend a lot of my time exercising. I can turn my head and curl my fingers and toes, and stretch my arms amd legs. I am becoming quite good at it, too.
You went to the doctor today...Mommy, he lied to you. He said I'm not a baby. I am a baby Mommy, your baby. I think, and I feel...Mommy, what's abortion?
I can hear the doctor again. I don't like him. He seems cold and heartless. Something is intruding my home. The doctor called it a needle. Mommy what is it? It burns!! Please make him stop! I can't get away from it! Mommy, help me!!
Mommy. I am okay. I am in Jesus's arms. He is holding me. He told me about abortion. Why didn't you want me, Mommy? What did I do wrong?
Post on your site...tell the story that they can't tell, and that the cold-hearted simply do not care to hear...
I have a one-time gift. A beautiful gift that many people are ridiculed for in this day and age. A precious gift that many people throw away. It's called "virginity", and I plan to not waste it on someone who's just gonna dump me later. I choose to be faithful to my future husband, the man who will love me for the rest of my life, and to wait for the wedding day!! If you have chosen to save your one-time gift and are PROUD of your purity, paste this into your profile and add your name to the list: Dearheart, floppyearsthebunny, Lady Thigocia, iheartgod175

When unsure, take a risk. You miss out on learning if you don't.
The Faithful die young, but those who aren't live a long life mocked at as a coward.
Mistakes are just lessons that give you a wound in your heart or on your body as a reminder, and involve getting some mud on one's paws, but you soon know something you didn't before.
I find when I'm in trouble, I ask my father, the lion for help. He's as cunning as I am, but twice as brave and strong, and other than him, I don't rely on anyone.

Overtake the dragon all by yourself, and you get chewed up and spat out. But my dad's a match for him!
Me? I'm just a wretched little monster of a three tailed fox, how can a perfect creature like that lion like me? I'm thinking "What the?..."
I know very well the price of sin is death...I had to pay for it. But my good ol' dad bailed me out...and he gave up all he had so he could personally pay that price, then, I was thinin' "He's gonna die?! Oh Lord!"
Lean, to the right, lean to the left. Didn't matter which way, I would fall if it weren't for the big leoin paws that always catch me, always there I tell you, my my my...
On top of a throne of gold, he used to sit and rule peacfully over us, thoough we could drive him mad enough to pull out his hair...With our constent killing thieving and saying his name in vain. Good God, we are awful!
Jesus was there for me, is there for me, and will be there for me forever. With him I am almighty!!
Now, read the first word in the first sentence all the way down. After that read the last word in the last sentence all the way down. All three of these mesages are true, if you don't think so, ignore this. I'm not one to force my life on others...
I believe in God, the Father almighty,
Creator of heaven and earth
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
Who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit
Born of the Virgin Mary,
Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
Was crucified, died, and was buried;
He decended into the dead.
On the third day He rose again,
He ascended into heaven,
Is seated at the right hand of the Father.
And will come again to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
The holy universal Church,
The communion of saints,
The forgiveness of sins,
The resurrection of the body,
And the life everlasting. Amen.
