17 (who?)
PO: Departure by TeeheeXD PO: Departure by TeeheeXD
"Are you sure about this?"
"Yes I am." - Swampfire replied confidently to the maternal figure talking to him.
"We are going to miss you so much!" - the mother hugged her son like it was the last time she would see him.
And in fact, It could be the last time...
"Me too. But I need to go. They need my help on this mission."
"I understand." - She said in an upset tone- "Won't you say good bye to your cousin?"
"He's sleeping now, and I prefer leaving without talking to him." - Swampfire turned his head in the direction of the room his cousin was sleeping - "When he wakes up he's gonna get angry at me for leaving without saying anything, but if I go talk to him, he would probably convince me to stay."
"Okay then..." - These were the only words that escaped her mouth when her last attempt of making her son stay failed. - "So all I can do is wish you a Good Luck on your mission. And please be careful."
"Don't worry, I will!" - He gave one last hug on his mother before leaving.

Swampfire headed to the Plumbers' headquarters. He had received an offer for a very important mission that only the best plumbers of each planet were offered to take on. He didn't know what it was about, only that he would have to go to a planet called Earth.
When he arrived at the Plumber's base, there was a very large spaceship on the docks. He then realized it was the spaceship that would take him to the Earth.

"You must be Swampfire, the methanosian who accepted the mission." - A deep and strong voice echoed in the hallway.

The young methanosian turned in a quick motion, assuming a fighting stance, just to see a big figure standing in front of him.

"I'm sorry to scare you." - The large man said, offering him a hand. - "Gran-Master Elon. Call me L for short. I'm going to take you to your room."

Swampfire shook Elon's hand in compliment and followed him through the spaceship. The Gran-master took the Methanosian for a walk in the spaceship and said everytinhg about it before taking him to his room. He just forgot to tell him that he would have to share his room with another plumber.

The room was of a medium size, and not much furnished: all it had was a berth, a desk and a table with 2 chairs in the middle of it. Also, there was a large window in one of the walls.

"It's very cold inside here." - Swampfire thought when the automatic door shut behind him.
Just then he realized a blue figure laid on the lower part of the berth, holding something in his hands. He was reading a book.

"Hello!" - Said the methanosian to his roommate, but there was no reply.

The blue Necroffrigian in the bed was very concentrated reading his book.
Swampfire, seeing it was useless to try to talk to him, turned to the window to stare for the last time to his home planet. He then began thinking about the people he saw on the ship. He expected the other plumbers to be older and more experienced than him, but instead, everyone he saw, except Elon, seemed to be very young, and some of them very childish. Even his roommate seemed to be younger than him.
Swampfire, however, thought it was better not to underestimete them. He knew that if they were offered to take on that mission, it was because they were one of the best plumbers of their home planets, just like him.

"You know, there's still time for you to leave." - A deep and ethereal voice suddenly cut the methanosian's thoughts.

Swampfire turned to see that the blue guy laid in the bed was staring at him.

"I know." - he replied. - "But I've already made up my mind. I won't leave. And I know that, once the ship sets off, everything here in methanos will stay behind. I'll miss my family and my friends, but I'm sure they'll understand the reason I left."
"It's good to see that you're sure about your decision." - The necroffrigian said. - "The last thing I want is a homesick roommate." - He then turned to the book to continue his reading.
"You don't need to worry about that. So, what's your name?" - Swampfire inquired.
"I'm Big Chill." - Said the blue guy as he put his book aside, and sat on the bed.


YAAAAAYYYYY!!!!!:woohoo: This is the first page of a new comic I'm drawing. It's called Project Origins {PO for short}, and it's about the story of the aliens: how|why they went to Earth / how they met the characters from the Super Mario series / and the relationships between them.

This will be like how it all started; the very beggining of my stories. :dance:

I hope the text is good, because I'm a disaster at writing. {Just see my Writing grades at school :XD:} And I never thought I could write a long text like this one. I'm impressed with myself! {At school I had to write the same thing twice, but in a different way, to reach the minimum limit of lines :iconteheplz:}

And I will be very happy if you tell me what you think about it, so comment! Also, critiques and suggestions will be very welcome. But please use constructive criticism {the one with arguments}.

Well that's it for now!! Hope you like it!!! :iconimhappyplz:

Wow! I started writing this round Midnight.... It's already 3:00 AM here...... time sure flies..... :XD:
