Ow.
My arms broken? Not a problem.
I've had this happen many, many times before.

Sludgy, bothersome gobblegoop flopped in my eyes.
I do not like gobblegoop. It is bothersome nonsense, big floaty, sweaty, confusing words. Always floating in my eyes when I awake. Always bothersome. Always telling me "something something wrong", "dire warning", "attention".
Pfff!

I blinked the gobblegoop away.

There was fire. Lots of fire and smoke and broken things.
I remember falling. Snippy was with me.
We were falling.

Why ware we falling? I remember-ring.
I remember-ring being cold, being me but not me?
I remember-ring seeing double, left and right eye living on their own.
I remember-ring Left hand trying to kill Snippy, right up to the point when I smooshed into the ground and something on the left side of my head broke off.

---
Left arm, why did you want to kill Snippy?
He is a boobish slug, but he not worth it.
He's Captain's favorite cabin boy.
Left elbow still not work properly. Bent all sideways.
---

I smacked my elbow back into place.
Left arm, you been punished. Go sit in a corner.
Right wrist loosey-loose.
I smacked it into place as well.

Feeling better. Where is my Captain?
Looking around. No Captain to be seen.
That is a lot of fire.

Walking through the smoke.

Snippy? Poor, tired, goobly Snippy.
He's fallen asleep on the ground.
Snippy must have been real tired from our sky-fall.
Is that my sword? It is!
Snippy! You are bad. Why would you fall asleep on my sword?
That's not comfortable at all!

Snippy sleeps. I let him. Fire roars gently around us.
Things fall from the sky. They on fire.

I sing my best-est lullaby for Snippy, my voice louder than that of fire.
Something clicks in my head.
More gobble visions. I blink them away as soon as they float into my eyes.
Something something no heart rated detected from target?
Something something mission Accomplished?
I suddenly feel free, elevated.
The click has fixed something wrong with me before.
Something that always made me want to throw Snippy out of windows and off bridges is finally gone. I mean I still want to throw Snippy off bridges and all, but nowhere as bad as before.
Captain would always be there when I want to try to throw Snippy away the most-est.
He'd always say "PILOT! DON'T THROW SNIPP-EY AWAY LIKE ZAT!".
I always listen to Captain. Captain is wise and timeless and magical.

That is an awful a lot of jam, coming from Snippy.
Snippy must have broken his favorite-est jar of jam on landing.
He will be most grumpy when he wakels. Yes he will.

Fire surrounds us, tries to eat Snippy. More things fall from above.
Captain will not be pleased with this lollygagging.

Snippy can nap his gentle naps, but it won't do at all to nap here on MY sword all day long!

Snippy stuck on sword. Sword stuck in ground.
Hmmmm...
...
Right hand still not feeling up to challenge, still wiggly on the wrist. I grabbed the sword under and over Snippy. It stuck.
I push. The sword shatters in my hands, leaving a piece inside Snippy's chest. Oh well.
Gobble-ty-speak floops in my eyes, warning me about dangers of snapping sharp metal with hands. I don't care.
Fingers are generally more cooperative.
Well, except that one time when my pinkie run away and wouldn't come back for two weeks.
...

Something tells me Snippy wants to keep my sword in his chest.
I let him. It can be his sword... for now.
He can borrow it to play with.
Maybe I'll find a new sword in the dead city?
Or maybe Captain will pull one out of air for me?
Who knows! Captain is full of well-timed surprise!
I carry Snippy out of flames.
Snippy feels stiff and cold like a plastic board, not soft like his usual self. Rather odd that.

What's this?

The city shakes in its boots.
Wind slaps us.
A wall of water rides our way.

I suppose the fire brigade needed to put that fire out.
Better this than nothin'.

I hang onto Snippy, as water rushes in and tries to carry him away.
Pesky water, calm down. Fire is that-a-way.
Stop smacking me around!
You won't steal Snippy so easily from me!
I won't let you go... my friend.

*glomps Pilot* BESTEST PILOT EVAH

I never knew Pilot was so heroic. The 1st frame looked really awesome, I love the art style.

i always feel sad about the characters, because they are adorable.
even pilot, with his dark past and all, he still has a nice side, in his current, ''half-crazy'', almost-lobotomised self!

also captain is infinitelly adorable, and super-epic, and he/she is very awesome, and very articulate with words (unlike the pilot, who can't talk very well)

and snippy is nice, he is definatelly the ''ordinary'' guy, the guy like you and me, minus an immortallity gift, and he just tries to survive in the everyday mayem.

as for engie, he is a VERY smart dude, but seems to me like a bastard who doomed earth with his stupid mistakes.

hmm. my fave characters are mostly captain, snippy, and pilot, in that order.

Why do I always end up feeling sorry for the characters?
Even though they are so loveable and derpy?
They do not deserve this ;_;

NoooOooOOOOOooOOOOOO D: Bad things happen to everyone I love ;_;

Where is Lifalope when you need it?

I think Pilot is my favorite character. So innocent, but has such a deep, dark past.

I feel bad for pilot. Like, used to be a BAMF assassin, and now he's reduced to the (very lovable) way he is now. Still, I'd like to see Pilot regain his former self. But alas, all things are in zee captains plan.
