“We’re losing ground. More of our numbers have fallen to the plague, and those who aren’t feverish are being eaten alive by the hornets. Donald Trump has joined forces with the Karens, and the walking Jellyfish are closing in on us. I’m so sorry Commander, but I’m afraid…” The messenger drops his head, and I can hear him exhale a shaky breath, “… I’m afraid it’s over.”
I take a step back, and clench my fists, “No.” I say, “It’s not over yet. We’re still here!” I spread my arms wide, as I speaking to the whole room, “We’re not dead till we die, right? We can still do this!”
For a moment, there is silence, but then I see Tom Nook struggle to his feet, “I believe in us! As long as we have each other, and Switches, we can do it!”
I turn again as Minecraft: Caves and Cliffs stands up, “I’ve survived for ten long years, I can survive 2020!”
Smash Bros pats Minecraft on the back, and smiles around the room, “And if we can be friends, we can battle Murder Hornets!”
Then the Hunger Games Prequal enters the room, “It isn’t over until the Mockingjay sings!”
A Cute Dog barks, and fills the room with hope, I feel my spirits rise.
She Ra Season Five Ends On a Good Note cheers, and suddenly, I’m cheering too. And then the whole room is cheering.
Maybe we can survive this year. Maybe we can fight the giant-
“MURDER HORNETS!” Someone screams, as the bases door explodes, “They’ve found us! We’re all going to die!”
I turn to the sight of giant, man eating, horrendous looking, world-defying mutated bumblebees at our doorstep.
“Everyone for themselves!” Someone screeches.
“No, we can do this! Everyone, remember the cute dog you saw today! That’s what your fighting for!” But my voice was drowned out by a chorus of;
“Ladies, I demand to speak to your manager!”
“The Karens! We’re done for!”
“Protect the elderly!”
“COVID wiped them out, remember!”
I wanted to curl up into a ball. Panic, and death, and destruction surrounded me. I couldn’t escape it.
I watched as everything I ever cared about fell victim to it. As Soccer Practice was enveloped by the Virus, as the Beach became off limits, as the Toilet Paper was ripped from the shelves.
I looked up, and saw Karen standing over me.
Facebook in her hand.
This was it, my last few seconds before she unleashed her signature minions on me…
And then, with a loud crash, Karen fell to the ground.
In her place was an alien holding a gun.
I watched in awe as legions of Green people rolled into the bunker, taking down the Murder Hornets, Giant Jelly Fish, and Karens with ease.
“W-Where’d you come from?” I managed to say through my shock.
The Alien scoffed, “We’ve been here the whole time, you just forgot.”
“Oh.” I said, staring down at my feet. “Well, thanks, I guess.”
“No problem.” Said the Alien, “That’s what heroes do.”
And then they were off.
I wrote this at three o' clock in the morning, so there are (absolutely) a lot of mistakes here.
