Chapter 4: UP B
Bowser stood on a small balcony in Dr. Wily’s Fortress, watching as a group of his minions heaved a gigantic wooden box onto the main laboratory floor. He pressed a large red button on the control panel in front of him, causing the shadowy image of an older scientist with gray hair and a large mustache to appear before him.
“I must thank you, Dr. Wily, for your generous donation to my operation,” Bowser said.
“No problem, King Bowser,” the figure replied, “Just remember that this beast is very unstable and should be handled with great care. Do not let it out of its confinement until it is absolutely necessary. Also make sure you are well out of its path when you do.”
Bowser chuckled. “Don’t worry,” he said, “I

Chapter 5: Wily’s Fortress
“Alright, guys,” Pit said, “Good work today. We’ll start again tomorrow. I suggest you all get a good night’s sleep. Dismissed.”
Pit spread his wings and took off, leaving Villager, Rock, and the Wii Fit Trainer to themselves. Rock’s dog Rush was running around exploring the Animal Crossing stage around them.
“So,” Rock said, “How about we all go have some fun? We could check out some of the new stages they’re building.”
The Wii Fit Trainer scrunched her nose. “Pit said we should get some rest. I plan on doing just that,” she said.
Rock looked at Villager, hopeful that he would be game. Villager bit his lip. “I, um, think we should do as Pit says,

Chapter 3: Wii Fit Trainer
“Alright, guys,” Pit said, “welcome to Day One of training.”
Villager rubbed the sleep out of his eyes and straightened his hair. Pit had gotten them up at six in the morning, at least three hours earlier than Villager was accustomed to. Standing next to him was Rock, who showed no signs of fatigue at all. Stupid robot, Villager thought to himself. The three were now standing in the center of the Smash Grounds as the sun rose over the distant mountains. All around them, the skeletons of slowly forming stages rose ominously from the ground.
“So, is it true another newcomer’s arriving today?” Rock asked.
Pit grinned and chuckled to himself. “You’re just going to have to wait and see. Follow me.”

Chapter Six: The Yellow Devil
Mario and several of the other founders stood in the Smash Grounds’ medical tent, looking over the unconscious, heavily-bandaged form of Toon Link. Mario’s alternate-reality self, Dr. Mario, was currently checking his vitals.
“How is he, doc, um, me?” Mario asked.
Dr. Mario looked up at his alternate self. The two had met each other two years before when both took part in the second smash tournament. Since then, they had barely seen each other at all, except for last year, when Mario had extended another invitation to him, but he had turned it down, saying that he felt more at home at the hospital than in a battle arena. Despite this, Dr. Mario was always willing to give Mario help anytime he needed it, as was the case today.
“He’ll live,” the doctor said in an identical voice to Mario’s. “

Chapter 1: Newcomer
Super Smash Brothers.
A tournament founded almost four years before by eight of the mightiest warriors from all around the universe: Super Mario of the Mushroom Kingdom, the great ape Donkey Kong, Link the Hero of Time, bounty hunter Samus Aran, Yoshi of Yoshi’s Island, Kirby of Dreamland, ace star pilot Fox McCloud, and the electrical Pokémon Pikachu. Ever since then, the tournament had been hosted annually. Each time, the eight founders invited new heroes and warriors from around the universe to compete. This year, the tournament was opening once again. The founders had gathered once again and began making decisions as to the combatants. The first few invitation letters had been sent out and stages were being constructed.

Chapter 2: Opening
“Ladies and Gentlemen,” a familiar announcer’s voice called out through the loudspeakers over the stadium, “Please welcome your hosts, the Super Smash Founders!”
Villager and Mega Man were currently sitting in special front row seats in the new Stadium that had been built for this year’s tournament. All around them, Toads, Koopas, Gorons, Zoras, Kongs, Kremlings, Waddle Dees, and various other species from all around the universe had been gathered to watch the opening ceremonies for the Fourth Smash Tournament. The stage in the center looked like a boxing or wrestling ring with the Smash’s crosshairs symbol in the center of the mat.
“Please, welcome,” the announcer continued, “the shocking, the electrifying, the most well-known Pok
SolaceShe never slept well in the dark,
not without the children of the sun and moon
to guide her weary lids home.
Guided by the aftermath, she was always two steps behind.
What did the world look like to the girl who had been through it all?
Braved the heaviest of storms,
yet skipping over cracks in the pavement.
They said her eyes were the wisps of clouds before the storm.
To him they were reflections of pages overlooked.
She said it was like she lived the life of someone she had never met.
Laid out to dry, yesterdays news.
He knew her as the girl who was built to never collapse.
He wished he was too.
He loved her more than words could say, and yet her pain was such,
that at times, he feared she wouldn’t make it.
But on nights like these, even when it threatened to consume her,
he became convinced that somehow she would.
