BCT Fight 5: The Siren's Den
Fight 5: Into the Siren's Den
“Wha... what happened?” Jonathan squeaked out as he regained consciousness. His head throbbed in pain as he opened his eyes to the floor view of his last battleground, high atop Battle City's forcefield tower.
“I'm still alive... but how? Where's that crazy evil monkey?” He scanned the area, as he was still debilitated from fighting, but there were no signs of his dark enemy. As Jonathan began to regain feeling in his body, he felt a sharp jab in his right hand. Looking as fast as his eyes could move he saw the source and froze.
It was Razor's disembodied claw, wires strewn about and hydraulic fluids still freshly dripping from the joint.
“WHAT THE CRAP?!” Jonathan sprang up in shock. “This is that monkey's claw! I couldn't have done that!” The archer's mind raced as he rose to his feet to get a better look at his surroundings. Aside from the claw, there was hardly any evidence of a brawl; only the few arrows Jonatha

BCT Fight 4: Showdown
Fight 4: A Showdown for the Ages
'This fighting isn't going to get any easier,' Jonathan thought to himself. 'I wish I didn't have to go to those lengths to beat Tammy; I feel like a jerk...' Even though he was pushed to his limits, Jonathan knew that his methods weren't the best. He sat back down under the tree where his former opponent hung and tried to clear his mind.
'I guess I can take comfort that it didn't hurt her and she got to go home... if only it were that easy for me.' Jonathan then slapped himself across his face.
“Snap out of it! You did what you had to do! You know what you want out of this whole crazy tournament, now go get it! FIGHT!”
Beep! Beep! Beep! went the call of the wrist-screen once again, but Jonathan didn't jump from shock, he was ready.
“Not this time, buddy! You're not getting the jump on me. What do you have this time?”
The screen read: “Congratulations! You have advanced once again in the Battle City Tournament. You are

BCT Fight 3: Homeward Bound
Fight 3: Homeward Bound
"What do I want if I win?" Jonathan said to himself. Nestled in the branches of one of the few trees left in Battle City's park, he was lost in thought surrounding the end of his confrontation with Death Rose.
"I never considered the prize because I didn't think I'd make it anywhere in the tournament, but here I am. There's always Amity Park... I'm sure Danny and Sam would be happy to see me...”
All of a sudden, Beep! Beep! Beep! went the wrist monitor once again, making Jonathan nearly fall out of the tree, hanging onto the branch by one hand.
“Grrr... I'm really starting to hate that thing...” Jonathan growled as he inched his way back to the trunk of the tree and slid back down to the ground. “Alright, what do you want this time?”
The screen read:
“Congratulations! You have advanced again in the Battle City Tournament. The field has been thinned and now the cream of the crop remains. Your skills and wit have guided you

BCT Fight 2: All I Wanted...
Fight 2: All I Wanted Was a TV
"I did it…" Jonathan said with a sigh. "… My first step towards escaping this twisted city." After a brilliant escape and defeat of the half-ghost Cody, he could finally relax. Jonathan scoured the area, collecting his arrows by hand or mentally, packed his trusty weapon back in the quiver, and sat on the side of a pier to focus his mind.
"I wonder who, or what, my next opponent will be." He concentrated on the water, looking deeper and deeper…
Beep! Beep! Beep! went Jonathan’s wrist-monitor, snapping him out of his trance and making him jump a little.
"I hate it when that happens," Jonathan grumbled. On the screen it read:
"Well done, competitor! You have defeated your first opponent and advanced in the Battle City Tournament. But this is no time to relax! Your next matchup has already been decided and the information is being relayed to you now. Good luck!"
The message then disappeared and a distance tracker, like in th

BCT Fight One: Cold Storage
BCT Fight One: Cold Storage
‘Where are those ships going?’ thought Jonathan as he ran in their direction through Battle City. The fleet of spaceships was larger than he first thought but there were only two different kinds: some looked like giant gumballs with gumdrops attached (at least to Jonathan), and the others looked like big, flying seeds.
‘I know this is going to be weird, but I still don’t think I’m braced for the shock. Oh, well…’
His chase led him to a city square where all the ships had landed. There were also a large television screen, a table with a group of bracelets and a rather plain banner that read “Battle City Tournament: Contestants Here.” When Jonathan arrived, all the other contestants were huddled around the giant television monitor. Surveying the crowd, he was surprised by the wide range of beings gathered.
“Humans, ghosts, little green aliens, robots that look like monkeys, I don’t know what that red thing

BCT Intro: Jonathan
Battle City Intro: Jonathan
“I missed being on the road like this…” said Jonathan with a content smile in his face, climbing another large hill.
After his adventures in Amity Park,  the conquest of the dark spirit that dwelled within him, receiving a new metal bow and some new arrows from Sam and a mysterious present from Danny, the song of travel called out to the psychic archer once again. He had gained much from his new friends, not only about his own abilities, but life and that people are good, no matter how deep you have to look. Even though Jonathan’s heart still hurt from knowing that his parents were killed by the ghost that possessed him all those years ago, he knew that he could still make good for it all by using what he has now to help others.
“Only the road knows where it will take me next.”
On the horizon, a spire slowly grew with each of Jonathan’s steps.
“Hmm… what’s that?” he wondered as he quickened his

Out with the old, in with the new!

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 19, 2012, 9:08 AM

Man has it been a long time since I wrote something on the dA journal... Vanilla Street Fighter 4 had just come out! Now there's Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and games like Soul Calibur 5 and Street Fighter X Tekken on the way. Anyway, Wanted to throw up an update for what I've been doing, mainly...

That I've started my very own gaming and animation podcast! captaingameandwatch.podomatic.…

Only one episode up so far, a small introduction to what I'm going to do, but the first episode I have planned is to go over the entirety of MTV's Daria. After that, a video game and then back to another cartoon or anime, starting a regular pattern. Just stay tuned for that.

In other news, getting started being hooked on the new season of Total Drama with the next version of the cast, as well as another Canadian show called Detentionaire. Long story short, it's like an animated version of 24 set in a high school. Check it out on Teletoon if you live up in the great white north, or if not, here on YouTube:…

  • Watching: Daria
  • Playing: Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3
  • Drinking: Orange Soda
