LAS3: Retold Chapter 29Chapter XXIX: Celebration
It looks like it could be the end for our hero. Wart already defeated Mario and had his sights set on Luigi. He may have been able to survive Wart's icy blast, but he was in no condition to continue fighting. Wart was prepared to finish off Luigi when...
"Not so fast, you froggy fiend!" someone shouted.
"Who goes there?!" Wart roared. "Gack!"
The person that had just showed up tossed an eggplant into Wart's mouth. Luigi turned to see who came to save him and saw that there were actually two saviors. Neither of them were who Luigi expected to see, but they were both familiar. One was a human with blonde hair and wore a pink dress. The other was a Toad with red spots and wore a blue vest.
"Peach! Toad!" Luigi smiled.
"Oh ho!" Wart said when he saw them. "What do we have here? More challengers? I'll deal with you too!"
"Leave it to me, Peach!" Toad boasted. "You go revive Mario and Luigi!"
Peach and Toad's plan was put into action. Toad used his superior speed to
LAS3: Retold Chapter 28Chapter XXVIII: The Dream World of Subcon
It was decided that Luigi would have to fall asleep so that he can go to Subcon and confront Wart. It was easier said than done, however, because Luigi just can't seem to nod off.
"Plumber's Log. Two hours in and Luigi is still wide awake," Mario said jokingly.
"That...is not funny," Luigi scowled.
"You'll have to fall asleep eventually," said Waluigi. "And then you'll go to Lala Land. Which is also known as Subcon? Heheheh."
"That's not funny either!"
"This isn't working. Let's give him some warm milk," Wario suggested.
"I think some aromatherapy might do the trick," Amy noted.
"But I don't have any of those candles," Luigi sighed.
"I do. I brought some along. You know, in case you were stressed out or something. Would someone mind lighting it for me?"
"No problem," Mario offered. "Hand one over here, Chicky."
Amy pulled a candle out of her suitcase and gave it to Mario. The older brother lit it using his Firebrand, then placed it near Luigi s
LAS3: Retold Chapter 27Chapter XXVII: The Missing Clue
It was a rough day, but Luigi was finally able to find the sixth yoshi egg. He and the others spent the evening discussing their plans for tomorrow while eating dinner; the spaghetti that Luigi bought with a hint of the Horsetail Pinky found over it.
"Thanks for buying dinner tonight, Luigi," Wario said gratefully. "I didn't think you'd actually do something like that."
"Hey, I try to keep my word," Luigi smiled. "Hey, Mario. Did you ever figure out anything?"
Mario sighed. "No luck. I've read everything up to the point where I fought Smithy, but there still isn't any useful info."
"Smithy? Who's that?"
"The guy with the weapons factory. He busted up Bowser's castle with a huge sword. Oh. You weren't even around when all that happened, huh?"
"Whatever. I'm only interested in Wart, not Smithy. Wario, have you got anything to report?"
"Nothing new," Wario stated. "We'll have to check out the Waffle Kingdom next."
"I'm not sure if I can completely agree wit
LAS3: Retold Chapter 26Chapter XXVI: Sixth Egg Secured
After being told that the orange yoshi egg was lost, Luigi had given up on looking for it. He was laying in bed on the S.S. Garlic now. His friends tried to cheer him up, but it seemed to do little good. Even Mario put his research on hold so he could talk Luigi out of giving up.
"You were so close! You can't give up now!" Oshi pleaded.
"This isn't over yet. There's some places you haven't tried," Wario pointed out.
"C'mon, Luigi. This isn't like you," said Amy. "I mean, Marios don't give up. Right?"
"Seems to me that you've forgotten that you're not doing this alone," Mario chimed in. "I'm sure we can do this if we split up and check out the areas you haven't hit yet."
Everyone's message got through to Luigi. The yoshi leader sat up in bed and looked at his friends. "You guys are right. The clock is ticking away and I'm getting ticked off. So let's get going!"
"I suppose it's time I started doing something productive," Mario said as he took The World
LAS3: Retold Chapter 25Chapter XXV: All Around Rogueport
Rumor has it that a Puni in Boggly Woods had the next yoshi egg that Luigi was looking for. Luigi and his friends have gone into the sewers to look for a pipe that would take them there. Unfortunately, they got lost and arrived in what appears to be an underground town.
"Wario, do you have any idea where we're going?" Luigi asked.
"Actually, I don't," Wario admitted. "This map is confusing as heck."
"Are you sure you're not holding it upside-down?"
"Of course! Gah! How dumb do you think I am?"
A nearby Bandit noticed the little argument. "Are you guys lost?"
"Yeah," said Luigi. "I'm trying to get to Boggly Woods."
"Oh. No problem. I know the way there. Go through the doorway over there and take the sliding platform to the pipe, go down the stairs and to the first pipe you see and go through the doorway just a few feet away. It's pretty straight-forward from there."
"Grazie," Luigi thanked the Bandit.
"That guy sure knew what he was talking about," Oshi
LAS3: Retold Chapter 24Chapter XXIV: Taking a Gamble
Luigi woke up the next morning and stretched out. He was a bit used to sleeping on the S.S. Garlic and almost forgot where he was. But it came back to him and he got out of bed. He was about to go to the kitchen when he noticed that Mario left the Plumber's Log open on the desk.
"Let's see here..." Luigi said as he took a peek at it. "'Entry number 1014. We were traveling in a strange land called Turtlevania. Somebody had pulled the plug on the big bathtub in the sky, and we were soaked!' Must be where Mario quit..."
Luigi went into the kitchen and helped himself to a bowl of cereal. He was halfway finished with the meal when Mario showed up.
"Hey there, Mario," Luigi said cheerfully. "This oughta be a great day for egg-hunting."
"That's nice..." Mario mumbled.
"Is something wrong? Have any luck finding some info?"
Mario sighed. "I found a little bit, but I'm not really sure if it can be considered helpful."
"Well, one page mentioned that Wart
LAS3: Retold Chapter 23Chapter XXIII: Resting at Home
After getting the fifth egg in the Beanbean Kingdom, Luigi and his two party members flew back to the Mushroom Kingdom with the Waluigi Flyer.
"Home should be just ahead," Luigi announced to his passengers. "I'll fly over the Toad Town Port first to see if the others even got here yet."
"Look! There it is!" Yosheta pointed to the behemoth S.S. Garlic when the port came into view.
"Clouds! Delicious fluffy clouds!" Waluigi blurted out.
"I'm taking you straight home if you keep that up, mister," Luigi said seriously.
The Waluigi Flyer flew toward the S.S. Garlic and descended. Luigi wasn't as experienced as Waluigi, so the landing was a little bumpy. Everyone was fine, but Waluigi was still acting up and wouldn't walk on his own. He rode Yosheta while she and Luigi walked through Toad Town.
"Listen up, Waluigi. I'm not letting you in my house if you keep acting like that. So knock it off!"
Waluigi quickly shook his head. "Okay... I'm okay. I got it out of m
LAS3: Retold Chapter 22Chapter XXII: Robot Rampage
Luigi arrived at Beanbean Castle to get some advice from Prince Peasley, but the regal bean insisted that he get some lunch first. After enjoying some mushrooms and syrup, Luigi returned and gave Prince Peasley all the details about his rescue mission.
"My, aren't you quite the ladies' man!" Peasley laughed. "Princess Daisy, Princess Amy and even female yoshis... I told you that girls loved confidence!"
"Um...right," Luigi said, trying to take things seriously. "So do you think there might be a yoshi egg around here?"
"I suppose there's a very good chance. But I haven't got a clue where one could be."
Peasley paced back and forth. Luigi put a hand on his chin and thought.
"I may have an idea, Luigi. Have you ever heard of Boddle? He's the president of the Yoshi Fan Club and he owns the Yoshi Theater to the north. If any yoshi-related happenings occur around here, he's usually the first to know."
"I completely forgot about that. Sounds like a great place to s
LAS3: Retold Chapter 21Chapter XXI: Aerial Pursuit
"Pretty sweet-looking ride, huh?" Waluigi grinned as he strapped on a pilot's cap.
"I sure wasn't expecting it to show up here," Luigi admitted. "The S.S. Garlic is big, but I had no idea it had a garage and landing strip just for the Waluigi Flyer. Warios are pretty darn clever."
"Heheheh. Of course we are. Let's hop in and start this bad boy up!"
Waluigi climbed into the cockpit while Luigi hopped into the back seat.
"Buckle up!" Waluigi shouted "This will be a wild ride!"
"Oh, right. Safety first," Luigi chuckled and clicked the seatbelt in place. "Now go get 'em! For great justice!"
Waluigi started the Flyer's engine and it soon took off from the landing strip on the S.S. Garlic.
"You know," Luigi said after a minute. "I'm thinking that maybe we should've let the bros know where we're going first."
"Nyeh. They're fine," Waluigi scoffed.
"I'm not so sure. I know how Mario can be when I'm not around."
"I've seen it. He had quite a fit the night you went ov
The TrundlerThe waste land behind the fire station is always silent. No birds sing there, and even the wild rabbits and feral cats avoid it. Weedy wildflowers nod their seasonal heads in the breeze. Lying fallow in the midst of housing developments, shopping malls, the new movie theater — the vacant lot stands out like a knife wound on a woman’s placid face, shocking, brazen, ugly.
It is always empty. Except for one thing: a ragged heap of old trash, all nasty black tar paper and vicious snarls of rusted wire, car parts and broken glass and other junkyard jetsam. The embodiment of injury waiting to happen, an invitation to a tetanus shot... the city never hauled it away. No one ever wants anywhere near it; it radiates an eerie sense of calculating watchfulness.
And at night, it wanders.
When darkness falls, and the last cars heading into the hives of tract housing stop illuminating the asphalt with moving-picture shadows, it… unfolds. Bitter, broken tangles, grotesquely mov
