Hot Dogs in the Park [Adventure Time fanfiction]

Recommended Posts

This is Adventure Time fanfiction. The ship is Simon Petrikov pre-Ice King transformation and Marcelline as a child.

It was a bright, chilly day near the beginning of spring. People went about their daily lives in the city, even though the threat of terrible war was ever-looming. They bought hot dogs from carts during lunch hour, huddled around in coffee shops to beat the cold. One person in particular, a brown hair and bespectacled spoft spoken historian of ancient artifacts, left one such coffee shop, huddled in his long wool coat and holding his brown leather briefcase. Simon put his scarf on as he walked, passing the entrance to a large park. But something--no, someone, caught his eye. In a dark purple double breasted coat that went to her knees was a small grey skinned child with short black hair. Her little hands were in hercoat pockets and she stood with her back against a pillar to the gate of the park. She saw him and ran to him.

"Hey Mr.P! Did you find anything today?" She smiled at him and hugged his midsection because that was all she could reach.

"Oh hello Marcelline. Beautiful day we're having, isn't it? Shouldn't you be in school today?"

She shook her head. "It's Saturday, silly! Are you busy? Do you wanna go feed the geese with me?" He smiled at her and offered her his gloved hand.

"That sounds lovely." Together they walked into the park, passing people sitting on benches enjoying the air. They made it to the large pond in the middle of the park after walking along a path that cut through the muddy grass. Some patches of it were frozen still, but a few geese were stranded there for the winter. He searched his pockets for crackers, and found a few in a little plastic bag. He handed most of them to Marcelline, keeping only a couple for himself. She broke the crackers in half and tossed them to the geese, who came over immediately. He tossed down his own crackers to them then watched Marcelline throw her crackers to them. He smiled. It warmed his heart to see her so happy, when she was so upset about being lost when he first met her. He put the shoulder strap of his breifcase onto his shoulder and crouched down to be at her level.

"I have to go soon but I still have enough time to treat us both to a hot dog, if you would like."

She smiled at him. "Thanks, Mr. P. Yeah I haven't eaten since breakfast. I'm really hungry." She took his hand and together they walked to a hot dog stand near the entrance to the park. He bought two hot dogs, one with extra ketchup because he remembered that she liked her hot dogs with it, and walked over to the bench she was sitting at, handing it to her. She smile at him and took it, waiting for him to sit down beside her to start eating.

"I'm really glad I met you, Mr.P. If I hadn't met you, I would still be lost in that museum and my daddy wouldn't have found me and it woulda been a great big mess." She took a bite of her hot dog and chewed while thinking of the circumstances that made them meet. Simon was consulting the museum director about a new artifact found, and discovered Marcelline lost and scared in the middle of the museum, totally alone. He calmed her down and together they found her father. When she went to leave with her father, she stopped and declared that they would be friends from that day on, forever. No matter what happened. They would always be friends.

After a few minutes of silent eating, Simon threw away his hot dog wrapper. "I have to get going now Marcelline. It was fun being with you at the park. Maybe one day we can come back in the spring when it's warmer so that we'll have ice cream instead of hot dogs again."

She looked at him, her smile fading. "But the war would have started by then, Mr.P. We might not even be here. anymore."

His heart sank when he heard her speak like that. "I'll be here waiting for you three months from this very moment, at this very spot. We're friends forever and ever no matter what happens, remember? I know you wouldn't keep me waiting." She gave him a hug and he left to continue his day.

Three months later, the war had started. Wreckage and despair overflowed through the streets. Most people had evacuated, but not Simon. He had already lost a considerable amount of his mind to the crown, his memories with it, but he never forgot that he promised to meet Marcelline at the park on that day. When he made it to the park, she wasn't there. She was in the middle of the street horribly upset in the middle of wreckage that was once a quiet street just months ago. He ran to a toy store with a broken shopfront window and grabbed the first toy he found. It was a long limbed red teddy bear with blue eyes and a stitched mouth.

Cries forever. Come back, Simon! Imagining her as a little girl feeding geese and eating a hot dog with her friend is just...

I hope we get to learn more about Marceline--like when does she turn into a vampire, what happened between her and PB, and and and. Aaaa. And all the things about the Mushroom War! I can wait on Marceline character development if they would tell us more about the war.

mog ikr. I've never been so overcome with feels before wow. I don't even think that I can watch an episode of Adventure Time that has the Ice King for a while because I'll remember that he used to be Simon.

Also yeah! More character development for Marcelline and more about the mushroom war would be super swell.

I really do miss Simon, I still feel bad for Ice King for who he was before he still had his sanity *cries*

Marceline's story is also touching before she was a vampire, I also can't for her character development

      Salutations, everyone!
       
      I'm a new user, my username here is the same I use on deviantArt. Is there anyone else among the crowd who also uses deviant Art, be it for submitting art/literature or looking at it?

      I just thought I'd share with you which cartoons I've liked, which cartoons I haven't liked, and which cartoons I plan on watching.  I'd like you to tell me which cartoons you'd recommend to me!  Feel free to "second" the ones on my list, too.  It gives me a better idea of what kinds of cartoons you like.  Keep in mind that while I have watched a handful of anime and adult cartoons, I am generally not interested in them, so there's no need to mention them.
       
      Currently watching:
       
      Dreamworks Dragons I'm finally making some headway again, after a long time of procrastinating and waiting to download the special episode that takes place between the Cartoon Network and Netflix seasons. The Netflix seasons are so much better animated, it isn't even funny. Goes to show you what a little budget will do, huh?  
      Cartoons I've liked*:
       
       
      Honorable Mentions:
       
       
      Cartoons that I plan to watch**:
       
       
      Cartoons I might watch if enough people recommend them:

      Today will be aired the final episode of Adventure Time. It's been ten season, ten years. It's a lot for a cartoon in CN and I know I should not expect more. I can tell from season 8 and 9 that they have stopped the development of the world and been trying to get it all together so it can stop. Feels shitty tho. I will not be able to watch since I'm in Latin America and will not be aired live. 
      If you watch it tonight, tell me about it.
