Roy, I Think He's Dead... by ProfessorPemzini Roy, I Think He's Dead... by ProfessorPemzini
The two brothers made their way to the top of the snow covered mountain towards the laboratory which rested at it's peak. "Roy, why are we going back there? We just got out of that wretched place." Benjamin panted. His voice hiding something. Roy was determined to go back to the lab and rescue Argus. "We -have- to go back. Argus needs us. We're his only hope." Roy replied. Benjamin staggered behind, struggling to keep up. Something in him didn't feel right. He couldn't focus and his balance was off.

Sensing something off about his brother, Roy looked over his shoulder, "You okay Ben?" He panted. The Vallhund nodded with heavy exhales, "Y-yeah...I'm good." He lied. The corgi frowned as he reluctantly turned away from his brother and went to continue on.

His eyes lay upon a rugged, almost impassible passage which caused him to stop in his tracks.
"Roy..." Benjamin's tired voice quivered behind him.
Roy didn't answer. He only stared at the terrain ahead in shock.
"Roy...listen to me. There's something I have to tell you." Benjamin whispered as his breath was thin.
The cardigan stared ahead, trying to figure out a way they could get through, "There has to be a way to get through. If we could just-"
"It's pointless!" Benjamin suddenly shouted as tears rolled down his eyes.
Roy froze, shocked at his brother yelling at him.
"Roy, I think he's dead..." Benjamin managed to say within the moment of silence he had. Roy felt his heart skip a beat. His legs felt even weaker then before. He could only stare ahead, in shock, as he was trying to figure out what his brother just said.


Just a bit more to my story, hehe. Benjamin finally tells Roy what he saw in the lab. But determined as ever, Roy won't believe it. He will find Argus and rescue him.

Thanks for looking!

Art, Roy, Benjamin and Argus to me *ProfessorPemzini

I seriously love the score from that film! Totally matches the pic, especially towards the end. That soft plucking of the string. 

Thanks so much! 83

I really love the emotion in this story and it's characters. I love how Benjamin believes their father-figure's dead, but Roy won't believe any of it. I really love it whenever these kinds of things happen in stories, where a character dies or is believed to be dead, and the main protagonist -- having grown to love the other character so much after everything they've been through after their relationship grew overtime -- refuses to believe that they're dead. It adds a lot of emotion and it shows you just how much they love and care about each other that, even if one of them dies, they'll refuse to believe their friend, parent, etc, is gone or taken away from them, or even go as far as to shout to their close remaining friends that they're not dead. It's also very realistic. If I lost somebody, I'd probably react the same way. It just shows a lot of emotion in my opinion.

I also love Roy's expression. It really shows, in my opinion, that he doesn't like what he is hearing, and he doesn't want to believe it, but at the same time he has a bad feeling that what Ben is saying might be true. But, hey, they won't know if they go back and search, right? Awesome picture, and awesome characters. :)
