(YellowSnowMan): Hey, whose peg is this???
Hmmm, it's in my spot and I need to park my arch...
Wait! That's Scooby's peg. hehehehe
*Shoves a torp up Scooby's exhaust port.*
And just in case he sees that..
*puts bubble gum on the ends of his demios lasers*
(Vector7): Ohh, my. Scoob's gunna have some problems. I shoved a potato up there earlier...
(Scooby): Scooby walks into the hanger after r & r (rioting and rodgering) in the base...
"Ahhh, my old peggie."
He walks 'round his pegasus feeling it's every curve, noticing the slight dents and nicks and recalling each battle where he earned them (and every failed attempt at reverse parking where he erm, earned them.)
"It's been too long. They treating you ok, buddy?"
The dust sheets come off with a cloud of space debris. Creatures skuttle away back into the shadows, disturbed by the bright light.
"Geez, it's only been a week!"
Scooby opens the cockpit and retreives the large feather duster from behind the seat of his craft. Other pilots had laughed at him for carrying this in his fighting machine, but as he donned his pink marigolds and 'kiss the cook' apron, Scooby felt proud.
"Don't worry, bud. We'll get you looking ship shape soon."
After a good hour of constant 'buffing,' the peg gleamed - apart from a nasty brown stain on the pilot's chair. His right arm ached as much as during a long space haul with only his holo-discs for company. There were almost as many crusty tissues around as well.
Scooby looked at the time and started.
"Damn, I gotta be in the Sol system in 3 hours."
With no time for final system checks, Scooby climbs into his cockpit, after giving it a quick polish. He notices an old curry container, and throws it into the hangar. The tin sprouts legs and runs into the corner.
"Damn mutant mould. Gets everywhere."
He flicks switches and the pegasus glows with life, red and green lights flicker over the HUD.
"One of these days I'm gonna have to learn what all of these mean."
Scooby notices one particularly bright, red, flashing light in the centre of his display. He chooses to ignore it for now, and promises to put his peggy in for a service once he docks at Mars.
The cockpit closes with a noise like on Star Trek, cause that is cool, and a sharp hiss as the cabin is pressurized.
"OK then, time to hit the road."
He flicks the last switch, and the engines start humming to life.
"Hey Vec, can you open the door for me, please?"
On the other end of the intercom, Vector 7 wakes with a start from a dream involving smoking caterpillars with boobies and a strange looking yellow goat.
"Huh, what? Oh it's you Boob, erm, I mean Scoob. Yeah, erm, Ok, erm, right. What did you want? Oh yeah, the door. Sure man... have a spudtastic time [hehe]... don't get too mashed [snigger]."
Vector pulls the lever and the hangar door opens. He then falls into his chair giggling like a school girl for about 5 minutes before he decides to go back to his dream.
"Okkkkaaaaayyyyyyyyyy." Scooby decides against pursuing the conversation further, cause Vec is a nutcase.
Out of the corner of his eye, Scooby notices movement... He was reasonably sure that there wasn't a snowman in the corner of the hangar a few seconds ago. He was quite sure that there wasn't a snowman in the corner of the hanger with the biggest grin that a snowman has ever had. And he was definitely sure that there wasn't a snowman in the corner of the hanger with the biggest grin that a snowman has ever had carrying an empty blast torp box - albeit with some empty bubble gum wrappers in it.
Scooby chuckled to himself, "Time to boil a snowman." He pivoted his ship on its landing gear and aimed his deimos at the snowman. As he pulled the trigger, Scooby started to laugh. The laughter died almost straight away as 3 large bubbles floated to the hangar ceiling.
"What the?? I'ma gonna havta melt this dude with my ass pipes, then."
Scooby wasn't quite sure why he felt such a need to destroy the snowman. He came over all destructive quite often - usually after a couple too many tequilas.
He flicked the throttle full open and hit the afterburner button. The split second after ignition, Scooby heard a noise unlike any other he had heard from his pegasus before. That was the last noise he heard.
But at least he melted that ruddy snowman.
