Off the Shelf A Penguins of Madagascar fanfic Chapter 1: "Operation: No 更多 Foolish Risks"
It was a typical morning at the Central Park Zoo. The birds in the air were singing; their flightless cousins below were smiling and waving. Julien was kicking Mort off his feet; Alice had her feet on her desk. Mason and Phil were playing chess. Leonard was asleep. Marlene was out of her habitat and running toward the Zoovenir shop.
"Well, that's unusual," Private 说 as he saw Marlene 鸭 behind a garbage can. She was about three-quarters of the way between her habitat and the Zoovenir 商店 entrance.
Skipper paced back and forth just outside Marlene’s habitat. It was Friday, at almost eight o’clock at night. He promised he would tell her what had really happened that 日 Blowhole had used his Serum on her, but he didn’t really realize what exactly he’d have to put into words. No matter how he arranged the confession in his mind, he couldn’t figure out how to say it without things getting too awkward. 更多 importantly, he couldn’t figure out how to say it.
Finally, it was coming up on the 小时 and Skipper wasn’t planning on being late, especially...
“The Other Man That Doesn’t Exist Yet” December 11, 2014
Skipper stood outside Marlene’s habitat. Earlier that day, the team had snuck into Alice’s office to order some sweet elusive Polish sauerkraut, and Alice had left the sign-up 列表 for the Breeding Program on her computer. Marlene’s name was on it. From the moment he saw it, his 心 fluttered. He wasn’t quite sure why. It was just the thought of Marlene feeling as if she needed someone. Why that would bother him was another mystery. He took a deep breath and entered.
“Hey, Skipper! What’s up?” Marlene 说 as he approached...
Skipper and Marlene smiled as they finished decorating the small 圣诞节 树 in her habitat. Once they’d finished wrapping thin garlands and LED lights around it and hanging tiny hand-made ornaments, they stood back and admired their work.
“Well,” Skipper said, taking her 由 the waist from the side, “I think it turned out pretty well.”
Marlene smiled and rested her paw on his chest. “I think so too. I had a good time decorating it with you.”
Skipper looked back to the tree. “You too, Marlene,” he replied. “Let’s turn off the lights...
Marlene yawned. “Thanks for taking me to that Enrique Guitaro concert, guys,” she 说 to the penguins as they drove her home. “It went a lot better than last time. And going backstage? That was”—she yawned again as if she hadn’t slept in days—“really awesome,” she finished.
Skipper chuckled from his place to the right of her. “I don’t think staying up all the way to one in the morning is a good idea for you.”
Marlene shook her head. “No, no, I’m awake.” She fought off another yawn and rubbed her eyes. “Tack as a sharp.”
After a long 日 of training, dealing with Julien, and protecting the zoo, Skipper busied himself on a top-secret solo mission. . . .
“You think you’re smooth, Hans, but you’re not as smooth as me. Especially not like . . . this!” Skipper 说 to the mirror as he held the fake mustache to his beak. He straightened his cowboy hat and shined his sheriff badge. “Now, that’s what I call a rugged Belvidere if I do say so myself.”
Skipper turned at different angles to the mirror as he admired...
"How's it lookin' on connecting to the camera feeds, Kowalski?" Skipper asked his lieutenant.
"Just fine, Skipper. Just a few 更多 minutes," Kowalski answered. "I have to say, the HQ is in pretty good shape for not being used in a number of years. Things are coming together nicely, and we've only been back for a week."
"I concur. 你 got those light fixtures, Rico?" Skipper asked, looking up at Rico on his ladder, fixing a light to the ceiling.
Note: I’ve typically been 写作 notes at the end, but for this case, I must make an exception as to be clear to you, 或者 at least the ones who haven’t read my 前一个 works. I have been thinking about doing a sequel to one of my stories, but never did because I didn’t think I could make anything long and commendable out of it. But with this project, I received some inspiration and motivation to do so in a short story. So, this short is a little sequel to “Skipper’s Curse.” If 你 haven’t read it before and plan to, be aware that this will contain...
