BGM: Toad Town (Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story)
Reimu swept the grounds of her shrine, happily humming to herself. A shadow loomed over her as she looked up to see Marisa floating above her. "You gonna float there menacingly or are you gonna come down and say hi?"
"Nah, thought I'd block your light." Marisa teased as Reimu rolled her eyes and stepped out of the shadow. "Aww, party pooper." She said as she flew down and landed on the ground. "So, what's new with you?"
"Oh you know, same ol' same ol'." Reimu said. "…Well, actually…"
"You ever feel like you had a major case of deja vu? Like you relived something?"
"What'ya talking about?"
"I dunno, it feels like we kinda did another space adventure, kicked Shadow Queen's butt again and then kicked Xehanort's ass once more."
"You feeling alright?" Marisa tilted her head. "Maybe you had a weird dream."
"Well… I did have this one dream where we fought Bowser at Peach's Castle and this weird skeleton guy came over and kicked his butt before turning to us."
"Weird skeleton guy… can't say I've met any of them. Aside from a Dry Bones or two."
Reimu shrugged it off. "Well, in any case… at least it's been peaceful for a while."
Marisa let out a chuckle. "You wanna go and bug the bros for a bit?"
Reimu snickered. "Sure." She said.
"Alright, let's go!" Marisa said as they hopped inside the warp pipe.
BGM: Have a Nice Talk (Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story)
"Peach, we've been seeing each other for a very long time… so, I was wondering if you would do me the honor of… marrying me?" Mario asked.
"Cut!" Luigi said as he walked over to Mario who was actually practicing his proposal to… Lucy? "Something's not right here…" He mused.
"Yeah, I'm having a plumber practicing his proposing skills on me. No offense."
"Don't worry about it."
"Couldn't you have someone else be Peach? Like Daisy?" Lucy suggested.
"No, because it'd be weird seeing my bro proposing to my girl." Luigi said.
"Oh, so you had to choose me because I'm blonde? Is that it?"
"No! That's not like it at all!" Luigi defended. "I'm just sayin-"
"Look, I got this." Scout walked over to Mario. "Look Mario, all you gotta say is "I've got a bucket of chicken. Wanna marry me?" Trust me dude, it works wonders!"
Tracer facepalmed. "Oh goodness Scout, that is not how you do it…"
"That is what I've been telling him." Spy grumbled.
"This is just sad…" Sora sighed.
"Hey! What are you boneheads doing over here?" Marisa walked over to them.
"Ten-hut! Hello Marisa and Reimu!" Soldier saluted. "We are watching Mario fail miserably at proposing to Lucy!"
"…What." Reimu blinked.
"It's a long story." Youmu said.
"Wait, I got it!" Luigi pointed to Marisa. "Mario, try it on her!"
"Uh… okay…" Mario nodded as he walked over to Marisa. "Peach, will you do me the honor of… becoming my bride?"
"Cut!" Luigi said and shook his head. "You're supposed to say 'yes!'."
"I knew it… he's using us blonde folk." Lucy grumbled.
"Sorry!" Mario sighed. "Look, I'm just a bit nervous. I want to get this just right. Luigi thought it'd be a good idea to help me out."
"You? Nervous?" Marisa raised an eyebrow. "The great Super Mario is nervous… never thought I'd see the day." She chuckled, earning a punch to the shoulder from Reimu. "Ow!"
"Give him a break, proposing to someone can be nerve wracking." Reimu said.
"Thank you, Reimu." Mario said, then noticed Tracer walking over to him.
"Mario, hon… it doesn't have to be perfect, no matter how much we all want proposals to be. You just gotta let your feelings out from the heart. Sure it'll be difficult, but you'll be just fine." Tracer smiled.
Mario nodded, smiling at her. "Thanks." He said and turned to Luigi. "Alright, let's do this again, bro."
"You got it!" Luigi grinned. "Alright, action!"
"Peach, we've known each other for such a long time, so I was wonder-"
"Wah!" Luigi yelped.
"Wow! Special effects! Nice touch, Demoman!" Soldier said.
"Uh, that wasn't me, lad!"
"Nope, I'm here too." Natsu said.
"Well how about-"
"We Dragon Slayers don't have explosives on us!" Gajeel told him as Wendy let out a nod.
"Well, it couldn't have been me! Or maybe it was me from the future who decided to come here to the past and make the marriage proposal dramatic!" He let out a gasp. "When did I learn time travel magic? I must learn this straight away!"
"There is no time travel magic!" Reimu yelled.
"That came from Peach's Castle." Sakuya said. "Let's go!"
"Right!" Mario said as they all took off running.
At Peach's Castle…
Peach walked out the doors. "Bowser, what are you doing NOW?!" She yelled. "…And why does your airship look really different this time? And why are you dressed up in a tux?!"
"Peach! We have known each other for a very long time and we have spent so long together in our castle!"
"Let's not worry about the details!" He said as he jumped down and got on one knee, handing Peach a bouquet of Piranha Plants. "Peach, will you do the honor of… marrying me?"
"HUH?!" Peach yelled in surprise.
"I even went and grabbed this!" He said, taking Peach's crown off and putting a tiara on her head.
"Now then, Peach… your chariot awaits!" Bowser said, referring to the airship.
"Um, Bowser… while I'm really flattered, I don't think-"
"Ah! You said flattered! That's good enough for me!" He said as he grabbed Peach.
"THIS IS NOT WHAT I MEANT!" Peach yelled as he jumped up in the air and landed on the airship.
"Bwahahaha! Let's get a move on!" He said.
"BOWSER!" A voice yelled.
"Ah, typical…" Bowser rolled his eyes with a chuckle. "Right on cue, though." He said as the Bros, Reimu, Marisa, Sakuya, Youmu, the Mercs, Lucy, Natsu, Wendy, Gajeel, Tracer, and Sora hopped on the airship. "My my, such a small crowd this time." He smirked.
"Just where do you think you're going with Peach?" Natsu asked. "And why are you dressed up all fancy like?"
"He's wearing a tux… but why?" Lucy wondered.
Mario looked at Bowser, then at Peach, and then back at Bowser… and immediately a lightbulb appeared above his head. "…You…"
"Heheheh, figured it out already, eh?" Bowser smirked. "That's right. I propose to Peach and she said yes!"
"I just said I was flatter-"
"See? She said yes!"
"Ugh…" Peach groaned.
"Interesting… a dinosaur and a human together as one?" Medic rubbed his chin in thought. "I must find out what zhe baby would look like!"
"It'd be an unholy abomination, that's what!" Marisa said as the others looked disgusted as well.
"It'd be a breakthrough in science!" Medic exclaimed.
Mario trembled with rage. "I object to this union!"
"Always gotta be the naysayer to our relationship!" Bowser grumbled. "Alright, you knucklehead… let's finish this like men!"
"I agree!" Mario said as Bowser snapped his fingers, calling upon the Koopa Troop along with Kamek, General Guy and Junior.
"Oh… Kamek…" Marisa let out a yawn. "Let's get this over with…" She said boredly.
That's odd, I thought she liked fighting him. Reimu thought.
"You guys deal with the others. I got a plumber to crush." Bowser smirked.
BGM: King Bowser (Super Mario Galaxy)
Mario rushed at Bowser, delivering a fiery punch to his gut but Bowser blocked with his arms as he quickly swiped at the plumber, only for him to jump back as he then lunged at the Koopa King and socked him in the face, sending Bowser a few feet. Bowser breathed fire right after but Mario rolled out of the way as he pulled out his hammer and swung at him, but Bowser grabbed his hammer and tossed it to the side as he punched Mario in the face, sending the plumber toward a wall but Mario recovered, using his feet to spring off the wall and punched him in the head.
"Heh… not bad, Mario!" Bowser smirked as he delivered an uppercut that knocked him up in the air as he then jumped up and punched Mario straight to the deck. Mario got up and rolled back to avoid getting crushed by the Koopa King. Mario got back up and panted a bit, causing Bowser to chuckle. "This is the end… for you!" He said, grabbing his top hat and throwing it at Mario, forcing him to dodge but it still knocked his hat off. Mario was caught up guard but he still put him his fists… unaware of the hat making a U-turn and heading straight for Mario.
"Mario, look out!" Peach yelled.
"Huh?" Mario turned around, only to get hit hard by the hat, sending him flying away. "YAAAAAAAH!"
"MARIOOO!" Peach yelled.
"Huh?!" Luigi turned his attention to his brother. "Mario!" He exclaimed as the others looked on in surprise, giving Kamek the opportunity to fire magic at them all to freeze them in place where General Guy stuck them all into a cannon and then launched them toward Mario's direction.
"You could fit that big guy in there? Huh, who knew!" A Koopa said.
"Bwahahaha…" Bowser smirked, noticing Mario's cap gently floating down on the deck as he slammed his foot on it to crush it. He then held Peach by the arms. "Welp, time for my wedding with Peach! Jealous, Mario? BWAHAHAHA!" He said as the ship flew off while Mario's cap flew off of the deck.
"I TOLD YOU I WAS FLATTERED! I NEVER SAID YES! WHY AREN'T YOU LISTENING TO ME?!" Peach yelled, but was completely ignored as the ship flew off, where Mario's cap had an unfortunate greeting with the rotors, slicing it into bits as the pieces scattered into the winds. It was then that a ghost-like creature grabbed part of the hat that contained the "M" emblem.
"This isn't good…" He said as he turned toward where the others got blasted and with a nod, he flew off directly after them.
Yup, it's not a late season April Fools joke this time! It's the real deal!
