Go To

"The potatoes! Of all the people I forgot to invite to the wedding, I forget to bring the potatoes!"
Ness, making no sense. Par for the course.

What Goes On is a Super Smash Bros. fanfiction by The Great Chicken Miasma. It can be found here.

The story begins with Marth trying to create a stage using the Stage Builder mode. Wanting to play, Ness, Kirby, Pikachu, Lucas, Popo and Nana nag Marth to let them have their turn. Throwing his controller at them in frustration, Marth accidentally kills the Smashers' beloved Wii, Schlemiel. Realizing right away that they can't tell anyone about this untimely death, the group decides that it's up to them (sans Marth, who abandons the scene) to bury Schlemiel. No sooner have they buried him than Ness decides that they must try to bring Schlemiel back from the dead. A ritual is hastily done, and something strange happens to Lucas. The next day he's vomiting black goo, speaking gibberish, and has renamed himself Ryuukash. That's the least weird thing that happens afterwards.


Fairly quickly, it becomes apparent that nobody has noticed —or cares— that Schlemiel is gone. The story shifts focus to the friendship between Ness and Lucas, which is strained by Lucas' Stalker with a Crush tendencies, which creep Ness out. Basically, it's the story of a bunch of loonies living with an even larger group of loonies who find a bunch of random stuff happening to their clique. This includes, but is not limited to: repeated attacks from Porky Minch, multiple contests held by Master Hand and Crazy Hand, and as mentioned before, Ness trying to get some breathing space from Lucas.

It's somewhat a crack fic, so avoid if it's not your style. And the authoress clearly loves the Ness/Lucas pairing, so if that's not your thing either, stay away. But it has a good number of genuinely funny moments. Definitely worth a read-through.


The same author also made Better Off Alone, so check it out as well.
