Game Over by chill13 Game Over by chill13
When Felix is forced onto the most difficult level of a new game things...don't turn out too well. With the aid of Construction-Kate his friends find him.

I appologize for the the rather depressing nature of my last couple pictures. My favorite characters never seem to be safe around me.

By the way, there IS a reason he hasn't flickered into non-existence--like most video characters do at the end of a game. But I'm gonna save that for the actual story.

Here's a few other pics that go with this story: [link] [link] [link] [link] [link] [link] [link]

----
When Mr. Litwack announces that he is getting a brand new 1213 versian of Fix-It-Felix jr. Felix is beside himself. He just can't wait to meet the new characters he considers 'kin'.
But despite the arcade owner's overheard promise to keep the 'retro' game as well, many of the other Nicelanders are concerned about being shown up.

And the new game is indeed impressive. Niceland is no longer one apartment building. It's an entire city with slums, suburbs, a business district and even a bridge. And detail is everywhere, from random trash on the street to the seams on characters clothes.

Many more characters are involved as well. A second player has been added for the female gamers, a sister to Felix named 'Construction-Kate'. And Felix's father has been added as a non-playable character who can give information and new tools to the player. Ralph, too, has been given a family. Much like Bowser's kids in Mario, Ralph's wife and kids do his bidding in wrecking the city.

But it isn't a hunky dory, happy-go-lucky world like the Ralph and Felix we know have created. After the arcade closes Felix 2013 is no longer the good guy who's only out to help people. He is very much the boss of his game and with his sister by his side keeps tabs on the whole city.

Of course, our quartet of a welcome party doesn't know this when they show up at the new game with friendly greetings.

Felix is shocked to see his dad, a man he has never really seen but is programmed to miss dearly. His backstory has always told him that his father gave him his hammer on his deathbed. So to see him now...even a new versian of him get's the handyman a little choked up. The old man is quite happy to invite him into the family, as his other boy hasn't exactly lived up to the moral code set out for him.

The new Felix doesn't take this well. For one thing he simply can't stand that there is an 'outdated' and clearly inferior versian of himself. And what makes it worse HIS father seems to like him. And that hammer! In the new game the golden hammer is the prize for winning the game and is locked up in the game's code and is only released if someone wins. That this old, dinosaur of a character that has the audacity to impersonate him just carries that hammer around drives him nuts.

So. Why not kill two birds with one stone? He reasons. Get rid of that embarassment of a game AND get that hammer at the same time.

Ralph and Sgt. Calhoun get a bit suspicious early on. But Felix just can't believe that his new 'family' could possibly do him harm.

He was wrong.

memories by early rise 

Funny how in just one moment
Things can turn upside down
wish I could turn back time to
when you were still around

And all I got left is memories
Of your face smiling at me
Used to say that we should all
just handle this diffrently

Took us all by surprise
no, we never saw this coming
always were, always will be
our hero
with no warning sign
one day, they came and
they took you away

Remeber everything that you said?
how we can never fully trust them
Wish I could say I disagree
but I know they're the ones to blame

Destroyed every hope we once had
Nothing we can do now that you're gone
no way to bring you back

Took us all by surprise
no, we never saw this coming
always were, always will be
our hero
with no warning sign
one day, they came and
they took you away

Things can be so unfair
you were taken away
Before your time
Now we're all sitting here,
nothing left for us to say
Don't want to leave you behind

Took us all by surprise
No, we never saw this coming
Always were, always will be our hero
With no warning sign
One day they came
And took you away

Took us all by surprise
No, we never saw this coming
Always were, always will be our hero
With no warning sign
One day they came
And took you away...

This picture you've done looks quite sad, and I'm just glad something like this didn't happen in the movie, especially because Felix is such an appealing character as well. :(
