Molly gripped her phaser tightly, the beacon glowing red in “kill” setting, and leveled it at the shimmering bands of light appearing in the deck of her ship.
She was one woman, one small ship, against the intimidating black behemoth that had crept up on her beneath her radar.
Why they thought she was any sort of threat she didn’t know; but she was going to give them hell if they tried to take her.
The beams slowed as a figure appeared, drawn out of nothingness, until a man stood before her. Molly took in the shiny leather of his boots and the cutlass and pistol strapped to his thighs, the black shirt that gaped under a leather jacket, and the dark curls hanging over his forehead from under his hat.
But it was the tattoo of a black hawk on his clavicle that struck fear into her heart.
“Who are you?” Molly demanded, bringing her other hand up to steady her phaser. He looked her appraisingly up and down with those cool blue and green eyes and the corner of his lips twitched.
“Captain Sherlock Holmes,” he replied, tipping his hat. “Space Pirate. And I’ve been looking for you for a very long time, Molly Hooper.”
Summary: You take his hook and he get frustrated cause you use your powers
Birds sang in your ear, awakening you from your cat nap. It’s nearly two in the afternoon. Lunch time. And what better place to have lunch than Ursula’s Fish and Chips restaurant. To save yourself a walk, you use your powers to transfer you from your house to the fish shack. Strutting over to the counter, you smirked as you see your pirate boyfriend who was polishing his hook.
“Hey hook.” You leaned against the bar that separated the two of you.
“Hey kitten. What are you doing?”
“Oh just came in for my usual. Be a doll and cook it up for me.”
He placed his hook down and attended to the kitchen. You quickly grabbed the fresh polished hook and hide it behind you. Harry soon returned a few minutes later and instantly knew it was missing.
“Where my hook! Did someone take it!”
Harry fumbled under the counter and searched in the kitchen. He then storms over to you, feeling on your clothes.
“Lass, please. If you have my hook just give it to me now. I’m not in the mood for one of your twisted games.”
“But I just wanted to have some fun but if you insist.” Just before you handed it over, you made it disappear within thin air.
“Come on (Y/N). Give it back please.” He pouted like a little kid. You almost gave in from his cuteness.
“Fine but kiss me first.” He quickly leaned in and pecked your lips.
“I meant a real kiss Harry.” You growled and pulled him in by the collar of his ripped shirt.
His arms wrapped around your small figure as your lips moved in perfect sync. He ran his tongue across your lower lip, asking enterance. Being that you took his hook, you greatfully granted his wish. He pulls back and kindly smile.
“May I please have my hook back now?”
You made his prize possession reappeared on his hand. Harry praises it with kisses and hooked it under your chin.
“Don’t think ye will get off that easy.” He smirked.
(Same anon again) I don't really remember MLAATR that much, just from when I was younger. Actually, all I really remember is that I used to ship Brad and Jenny a lot back then (even though I was a little kid). I think I even had an embarrassing little crush on Brad. Was he really that hateful and horrible character/friend to Jenny? I thought he cared about her?
JennyBrad was one of my first ships as well. They were really cute together, but the show was cancelled due to low ratings and Rob Renzetti (show’s creator) also confirmed that Jenny was planned to end up with Sheldon (a human recurring character who had a huge crush on her).
To be honest, I too don’t remember most of the show, but I do recall many instance of me cringing at Brad’s supposedly “best friend” status in later seasons (it had only three I believe and the later unaired episode were pirated in Polish with english subtitles iirc). As the show progressed, the writing, which wasn’t amazing to begin with, became lazier, somehow “mean” and some choices were just a bit too odd for me, especially in regards of what was supposed to be the core friendship(s) of the show.
The Christmas Special was/is the biggest offender for me. The plot had Jenny being mind-controlled by some rich kid who hated Christmas and all kinds of holidays (Easter, New Year’s Eve etc.).
The moment she first becomes brainwashed, however, the episode simply cuts to her waking up somewhere (I’m trying as hard as I can to remember) during Christmas (it’s snowy around her) and as she walks around the city, she notices that everyone treats her like shit, including Brad and her own mother (the woman who invented her).
She eventually meets Sheldon, the guy who has a crush on her and the only one who doesn’t dislike her (but protects her instead). The boy tells the robot that during the last year (this means that Jenny disappeared for one ENTIRE year with no one looking for her), she ruined every holiday for everyone (we see in a montage that she destroys a clock tower or something moments before the New Year’s Eve midnight) and so she became understandably very disliked. I don’t really remember what happens after that and how she solves everything, but I think a badass Santa battle was involved.
Now, I hate mean-spirited stuff, especially in kids shows. The main problem of this episode is that Jenny disappeared for 1 year (only showing up during feast days) and no one of her so-called friends and “family” (her mother-inventor) seemed to care. Instead, they were all mad at her because “muh holidays are ruined!”; it was especially stupid considering that she is a robot and so the mother, who invented her, should have known that there was something wrong with her acting like that.
Brad himself, who is always introduced as “Jenny’s best friend”, led a group of haters against her the moment she saw her walking around defenseless. Brad, the so-called “best friend”, who hasn’t talked to her for an entire year, isn’t even concerned about the fact that she’s wandering around confused. What a great friend indeed.
(this is why I love StarCo so much: Marco would have believed that something was wrong with Star and probably even protected her from the angry mobs, thus living up to his “Star’s best friend” status)
"Killian, will you teach me how to navigate?" The pirate stopped polishing his hook for a moment. He looked up at me and smiled. "Thought you'd never ask. Come, let's get to it." And with that he got up and started walking towards the docks.

“Is it easy?” I asked looking up at him.
“You may think it might be difficult. May I ask why you want to learn? Not that I’m unhappy to teach you.”
there are so many WADs out there that i am loathe to make some sort of must-play list. What i would do is make a list of ten very different megawads as a sort of sampler and then branch out based on what experiences you really enjoyed. It would probably look something like…
Doom the Way id Did / Doom II the Way id Did (if you love the classic maps) Hellbound (an epic, contiguous, soul-crushing adventure) Eternal Doom III (if you like Doom’s puzzles built of sector machinery and level geometry) Scythe (because it has really short, action-packed maps, even if the latter stuff gets crazy hard) Memento Mori II (the golden classic megaWAD) The Plutonia Experiment (the proving ground, and because I think that it’s insane to suggest stuff like Hell Revealed to people who have just finished Doom II) Valiant (because Skillsaw is awesome and brings his own brand of mobility-focused gameplay - never stop running) Back to Saturn X series (1 and 2) (beautiful and highly polished) Pirate Doom (the premiere partial conversion / themed mapset) Action Doom II: Urban Brawl (there are plenty of people who have pushed ZDoom into even stranger places, but I think this is the big one)
then, for example, if you really liked the short stuff from Scythe, but hated it when you got to Hell, you could try Adam Windsor’s bite-sized Demonfear levels. On the other hand, if claustrophobia and carnage is your thing, you might enjoy the manic mayhem of mouldy’s Going Down.
oh, this is completely disassociated from mods, btw. i’ve only played like ten gameplay mods, total.
