On Shaky Wings
Chapter 1

"Ow! Todd, stop shoving me!" I hissed in the darkness of the hangar. "Quit movin' so slow!" Todd's scratchy voice replied. "I can't see where I'm going!" I grumbled. The lights came on in the hangar. Misty and Lola stood next to the entrance, one of them turned on the lights.

"Men!" Lola said, as she and Misty giggled. "Hey! We don't wanna attract any attention here! The lights on in this hangar will blow our cover!" I said. "Oh, and all the bumbling around in the dark isn't suspicious?" Lola asked. "She's got a point." Todd said. I nodded, grudgingly. "Well, let's do this then." I said. We moved over to the vessel, where Todd and I opened both the cabin door and the engine cover. Todd used the small device he had with him to run a vessel systems diagnostic check, and I sat in the pilot's seat and pasted the "Repossession" sticker in one of the windows.

"There! Now we legally have ownership and possession of this ship! We need to get it flying, and take it to our client for the $100,000 Credit commission for repossessing it!" I said. "That's $25,000 credits for each of us!" said Todd. I nodded.

"How are the systems, Todd?" Misty asked. "So far, so good!" Todd said. Misty and Lola carried our small gear bags into the cabin. The device beeped in Todd's hands. "Done! All systems are go!" he announced. He removed the device from the the engine, and handed the device to Lola through the open door.

"I'll start this up, and you open the doors, Todd. Misty, Lola, cover him from this vessel, have your weapons ready!" I said. "Who put you in charge!?" Lola sneered. "Okay, 'fearless leader', what do you propose we do!?" I replied. Lola paused for a minute. "We do what you said, only better!" she replied jokingly. Todd and Misty laughed, and Todd opened the hangar doors, then ran into the space craft with us, as we headed for the runway.

Todd shut the door, as I readied the engine. Several security vehicles came pouring out of the main building, lights flashing, sirens blaring. "Cease and desist! You are trespassing on private property! That spacecraft does not belong to you!" came the security commander's voice through the communication channel.

"It's a legitimate repossession, you morons!" Lola said over the communications channel. I took off, and flew us from Planet Zoness to Planet Macbeth. We had to return this to the bank, at it's repossession depository located on Macbeth, where we would receive our bounty.

We were in the air, and now in space. The vessel we were in was a custom PVS-3300 spacecraft, it was the Lylat System's equivalent of a Hawker 4,000 Private jet. "How's the fuel?" asked Misty as she sat next to me in the copilot seat. "We're good, should get us to Macbeth in one piece." I said. Misty gently rubbed my thigh, as Todd and Lola snuggled together in one of the back seats.

Later, we landed on Macbeth, delivered the PVS-3300 spacecraft, and collected our money. Then we headed to the nearby hangar where Todd stashed the Malestrom, and we flew back to Corneria. "Is this what we've been reduced to? Repossessing spacecraft?" I complained. "Whatever pays the bills, Julius." Todd replied. "Yeah, but...I wish we could do more than just that." I said. "I hear ya'!" Lola replied.

We divided up the money, upon returning to Todd and Lola's place, said our thanks and goodbyes, and then Misty and I headed home, stopping at the bank to deposit our money on the way. As we parked at our mansion, we headed to the den, and I switched on the TV. Misty and I settled on the couch, and relaxed in each others' arms.

Happy Birthday RedFox8!

How'd you get here?
Kursed invited me (thanks Kursed).

Recommendations?
*Cracks Knuckles*

Well, you can't go wrong with the original for the SNES...I think you can get it via Virtual Console.

However, if you can't find it there, I DEFINITELY recommend Star Fox 64, you can get that via V.C. for sure (I have my copy for the Nintendo 3DS)

Star Fox Assault is also awesome!

Play those first, and then if you're a fan of Zelda, then you should try Star Fox adventures (be warned though, it's not as great as the others).

AVOID Star Fox Command. Awful play control, lousy and confusing multi ending plot line, and just dreadful animation.

Favorite instruments?
The electric guitar....I just love the strum and hum of the electric guitar, a true American icon that will never grow old. The Gibson Les Paul, greatest electric guitar ever!

I could never play though. I have what my old music teacher, Mrs. Mellinger, calls "stupid fingers". I can barely type, let along master a belt buckle. I couldn't properly tie my shoes until I was 7. :(

Newest word on GTA 5
Grand Theft Auto V, is being developed by Rockstar North in the United Kingdom and published by Rockstar Games. The game will be the first major title in the Grand Theft Auto series since Grand Theft Auto IV (2008), and a continuation of the fictional universe that was introduced in that game. The 15th game in the series overall,GTA V is to be set in fictional Los Santos in the state of San Andreas and its surrounding areas, based on modern-day Los Angeles and Southern California. Renditions of San Andreas were previously featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, released in 2004, and the original Grand Theft Auto, released in 1997.

According to Rockstar, Grand Theft Auto V is destined to be their biggest open world game to date. The game will concentrate on "the pursuit of the almighty dollar". In a break with recent tradition, GTA V will feature three playable protagonists.

Grand Theft Auto V was officially announced on 25 October 2011, after much speculation. The debut trailer for the game was unveiled on 2 November 2011. The first demo of the game was revealed to press on 11 October 2012. The second trailer of GTA V was announced on 5 November 2012, and released on 14 November 2012, and three more character trailers were announced on 25 April 2013 and released on 30 April 2013. On 9 July 2013, the first gameplay video for the game was released.

A highly anticipated game, GTA V is due for release on 17 September 2013, for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Releases for the PC and Wii U are being considered by Rockstar, but have not been officially announced.


Personally, I think Trevor is gross, but he's excellent in the fact he's reminiscent of "Phil Cassidy", the crazy redneck from GTA Vice City (and not so much like Old one-armed Phil Cassidy of GTA 3).

Franklin, bit of a dick, bit of a badass....I can understand his frustration with the world...I think the idea of Franklin did come from the "Carl Johnson" character in GTA SA

Michael...reminds me of that dude Jeffrey Donovan from "Burn Notice" or someone like him from movies and TV. His son reminds me of Jonah Hill (creepy)...

Michael is a retired former bank robber in his early forties who lives with his dysfunctional family on the proceeds of his former life in the upper-class suburb of Rockford Hills, based on Beverly Hills. Trevor, his former partner in crime, lives alone in a trailer in the desert of Blaine County, where his reckless and psychopathic behaviors are fueled by drug addiction. Franklin makes a living in Vespucci Beach—based on Venice Beach—as a repo man for an unscrupulous Armenian car dealership. The three acquaintances are drawn into Los Santos' criminal underworld "in the pursuit of the almighty American dollar".

According to Dan Houser, each of the protagonists is unlike any primary character that has appeared in a Grand Theft Auto title to date: Michael represents a protagonist who "won" and is now trying to adjust to life after his story has come to an end; Trevor is styled after a supporting character who has been re-cast in the role of protagonist; and Franklin is someone who has had no real exposure to a life of crime until the events of the game, and his attempts to avoid such a life end up thrusting him into the middle of it.

I like how you can switch into the different views of each of their lives, and play their missions...so awesome!

I like how this game's background is bigger than any of the other games..."San Andreas" in this game is much larger than San Andreas of GTA San Andreas.
