In an alternate timeline, Samus and Ridley go to High School together. What will happen? Nobody knows! FINAL CHAPTER UP NOW!
It’s finally that time again, folks. Time for another exciting episode of Hacks’n’Slash, where the GameCola staff gets together to read some bad fanfiction. And this one was a doozy.
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you “Metroid High School” by 111SAMUSRIDLEY4EVA2006-chan, a story of those normal high school days and the ill-fated love between a girl and a giant pterodactyl—which surprisingly enough, is a plot point that never gets brought up.
In this tale of dramatic suspense, our hero Samus has to fight through the typical troubles of high school—bad grades, bullies, and class elections. Oh, and those pesky STDs, “praegnancies”, and civil wars that students handle every day. No big deal.
Join me and my fellow brave adventurers Alex Jedraszczak, Anna Bryniarski, Joseph Martin, Nathaniel Hoover, and special guest Shannon “Z-Saber” Hoover as we slog through terrible grammar and nonsensical plot to seek the answer to the eternal question…
Will Samus and Ridley be togetha foreva?
Featured Quote: Samus was shocked by the lack of religious toleration in the establishment.
Yes. Just yes. <3
This just brightened up my day. Good job with the podcast!
You know, it’s always a great idea to ask someone out to prom after having a civil war with death and evil cholera-inducing coaches all at your local high school.
Can’t wait for the next one!
Fans of this fanfiction are encouraged to read the spinoff story, “Tio Juan Fusion”, by the same author.
It’s weird how this is also gives us a little window into the life of the writer… Almost like a 2nd story about the author. Meta, man.
Coming back nearly 5 years later, and this still remains my favorite podcast of all time, or at least one of them. So many laughs and memorable quotes, and it’s still a joy to listen all the way though!
