Hello there, ladies and gentlemen. It's time for the final chapter of LRGWE (or as I call it: The Greatest Story Ever Told) and I hope you enjoy it. Since early July I have been working on a project that I must not speak of, probably because I would be turned into the proper authorities quicker than you can say "You're gonna put us all in the hole if you keep acting like that, mister! Haha! Severecriminalacticity!". Yes, it's been somewhat hectic for me and I'm dealing with risky things. My new job is both enjoyable and exciting, so at least I have that. It keeps me very
busy, and I can't be bothered until at least next January. Oh well, hope you enjoy this. In some respects, this is the Empire Strikes Back of the series, except ESB wasn't the end.Part V
Bender, with the help of Lando, cut a slice out of Leela's wedding cake. He ate it in the most messy fashion imaginable, getting the blue frosting all over himself. Lando looked at Bender and remembered what the doctor had told him just two days ago. They thought that Bender could be fixed with a new chassis and a repaired brain. However, Bender's brain appeared unrepairable and his memories had to be transferred to a different one. Sometime during the transfer, there was an accident that caused Bender to lose some memories. Sometimes, he would remember things and randomly forget them later, only to remember them again not long after. Some memories, such as the ones of him and Fry meeting, were simply lost forever. Bender wasn't too good with his new chassis either. The hands and arms didn't move as freely and walking was much more difficult.
Bender dropped his plate and stared at everyone.
"Why are all my friends here? All my friends... Is it my birthday already?" Lando noticed that Bender was about to spill his drink.
"Bender, be careful, you're spilling your-"
"Oh God. I'm just so sorry. So sorry for us all.", Bender interrupted Lando. He may have been thinking he was at Hermes's funeral again. Bender dropped his glass, which broke next to his plate, and walked out of the room.
Fry sat at a table with Gorgak, contemplating Gorgak's plan. He looked at him, who was telling an amusing anecdote of a trip he took to Mars once. Fry just looked at him and thought about what a world of pure vagueness would be like. He thought of how clear things were right now and how horrid-looking Gorgak looked. He also hated how Gorgak talked and the things he said. He hated Gorgak and was envious of him. In a vague world, his feelings would be less intense. He looked at Leela. His love for her was by no means vague and was as tense as his hate for Gorgak.
He couldn't let these feelings go.
Gorgak looked over at Fry, who had interrupted him.
"Not even in the face of sure death...never compromise."
Fry stood up and walked out of the building. He saw Bender looking sadly over the balcony...through the bubble that surrounded the building, seperating it from space. He came up to Bender and put his hand on his shoulder.
"Bender, we've got to leave. We've got to get back to Earth, there's people who need to know about something Gorgak is doing. We have to do something.", Fry said, trying to pull Bender away from the balcony. Bender turn around and looked at Fry with a confused expression on his face.
"Who are you, again?"
Fry stared at Bender and slowly turned around, walking back to the ship. He put on his suit and was ready for takeoff in no time. On the screen facing the captain's seat, a video started. Fry realized it was probably a wedding tape of Leela's mom and dad getting married, which Leela had made everyone watch on the long flight to the church. The ship took off and in just a few seconds, the church was nothing but a faint spot in the distance. The tape finally started, and it was of Gorgak talking directly into a camera.
"I would like to thank you all for participating in my plan. I'm not entirely sure if it could be done without you all. Sadly, I can't have any witnesses. I'd like to once again thank you all and say, 'Goodbye'." Fry realized what Gorgak meant, just as the ship exploded. It made no noise, and left very little evidence, lost forever in space.
At the little church in the middle of nowhere, Gorgak and Leela clinked their glasses together as the Professor, Lando, and Bender watched on.
"To us.", Gorgak said, smiling brightly. Leela hesitated for a second.
"And to everyone else."
FUN FACT, KIDDOS: This story was originally about a Mexican boxer who becomes best friends with a famous chimp that's getting married to a man pretending to be a woman (who's also a gold digger)! Originally titled Star Dark
, this story was slightly altered to be more Futurama-themed. OCJ has decided to slightly alter Star Dark again, this time as a movie! For now, OC has to say "Adios, little amigos" and ride off into the sunset. Hope you enjoyed the show. Please pick up all empty food and beverage containers you have left and please don't stay in the theater for the next showing. We will have someone checking around before the next showing.
