Hi. While I have longer, ongoing fics, I do occasionally have a need/wish/itch to write something a little bit less serious. So, here is sample one of a recent effort, posted over at Beast's Lair - in a friendly response to a great short piece, called "Marry Me" written for the Tsukihime setting. In the regular story, there is a certain lady who, regrettably, was missing from the group shown in that story - and who had a more tragic time. So, I decided to start up a splinter timeline where things go, well, somewhat differently... Oh, and apologies in advance. ------------------------------ (Prequel) Kohaku was cowering nervously in the corner of the room, as Makihisa, the powerful and ruthless patriarch of the Tohno clan, stood in the centre, looking at her, with malignant intent. A step forward, and the Tohno patriarch began to move towards the innocent young girl. That is, until... "Me no like!" A massive metal fist punched through the side of the mansion and knocked Makihisa to one side, who crunched rather saatisfyingly against the farther wall. When he tried to stand up again, he looked out of the hole that that just been created, and saw... something he really wished he hadn't. "Just who, and what, are you?" he cursed. The being took the shape of a ferocious metallic tyrannosaur, fangs bared as they approached. "Me Grimlock, Badass!" ------------------------------ That story of how me Grimlock save day. Now girl sit on shoulders, and cheer while me Grimlock stomp things. This is best time! Prequel is over now. (PS - It take long time to try write like that. Me not bother next time. If you have problem with that, try and complain. Me in mood to stomp human and drink energon... and me all out of energon.) ------------------------------ Marry Me, Grimlock! By me Grimlock After me Grimlock squish bad man - him taste funny, by the way - girl with red hair and amber eyes say me Grimlock is best! Me Grimlock already know this, but it nice to be appreciated. After some Earth years - in which girl get bigger and heavier, though still small and light compared to me Grimlock - she ask me Grimlock about 'plans for future'. Me Grimlock plan to kick tailpipe and be badass, of course! But, it fun to spend time with girl - she nice and kind to me Grimlock, and me no like any other humans anyway. Especially boy with glasses and scar on chest. Him suck. So, one day, me Grimlock get visit from other Autobot - him named Hawk, also him named Metalhawk. Him have two names. Him funny. Him offer me Grimlock a Pretender shell - it mean me Grimlock able to walk around as puny human, as Hawk-is-also-Metalhawk can. Me think that stupid idea, but girl say her think it great. She ask me Grimlock try. Ok... Me Grimlock now able to look like this: Now when girl give me Grimlock hug, it feel much nicer. Also, she then say 'marry me, Grimlock!' Me not quite understand. She then say that if me Grimlock is king, then also need queen? Her smart. So, all come to me Grimlock's wedding! Or me Grimlock eat you. The End.
