Fry had left Planet
Express. No one was sure why or where he went. Most of the crew said
he had gone insane. Leela did agree with this. Fry was
constantly found muttering to himself, torturing small animals, and
was drawing strange symbols. The scary thing was, when he muttered,
he often talked about doing horrible, grotesque things to people.
Leela heard her own name being used several times. Fry was seriously
scaring the crew. When he left, Leela missed him, but she was also
glad. At least she wouldn't "have her skin hung from a
pole and her intestines wrapped around her corpse." Leela still
shudders when she thinks about that.
"We got a lot of
deliveries today, mon," Hermes said like he did about every
"You will make a delivery to Apocalypse 9."
The crew grimaced.
They trudged to the
ship. They launched, and Leela turned on the autopilot.
"Why do we keep
getting the dangerous planets?"
Amy spoke up, "GUH.
Our motto says that we're expendable."
Bender pitched in his
own reason, "Because we have low prices."
Leela sighed. "I
wonder what Fry is doing right now…"
torturing a squirrel."
Leela groaned and got
up. "Apocalypse 9 is a few hours away. We might as well get a
bit of sleep."
Amy and Bender crawled
into their hammocks (Amy was now using Fry's) and Leela just
fell onto her bed. She soon fell asleep.
dream, she found herself in an endless, black void. She walked about
aimlessly for a while, until she saw Fry walking towards her. She
waved. Fry stopped. Leela walked up to him. "Hi, Fry,"
she said. Fry didn't say anything. "Fry?" She
suddenly felt a sharp pain in her stomach. She looked down and
realized he had shoved a knife into her. She looked at him, and he
Leela woke up with a
start. "That was a weird dream." She stood up, and walked
towards her door. She immediately felt a… presence…
behind her. She turned and found Fry. "It wasn't a
dream!" he shouted. A knife came plunging down, and it went
straight through her throat.
Leela woke up again.
"Please tell me I'm really awake this time…"
she said to no one in particular. She got up and walked back onto the
Amy and Bender were
already awake. "Oh, Hi Leela! We're at Apocalypse 9."
Amy said cheerfully.
Leela groaned. "Lets
just get this over with."
The crew stumbled out
of the ship wearily. "That was the worst thing to happen to us
since Cannibalon." Complained Bender.
"Well, at least
they didn't try to sacrifice us to the Pain God." Leela
looked at him angrily.
"No, but they
still tried to sacrifice us to the Death God!"
Amy came out holding
her head. "Spleesh, Leela. Why are you so grumpy?"
answer, she just walked into the meeting room and sat down. Hermes
looked up. "De professor has a new invention, mon. Professor?"
The professor dragged
in a machine about the size of an average TV. "This is the
SpyTech 9000. Enter a name, and it will show what they're doing
right now. Who wants to try?"
Leela sat up
attentively. She spoke up, "I do."
She walked up to the
machine and entered PHILIP J FRY. The screen turned on, and showed
blackness. "Um, professor? I think it's broken."
the machine. "Hmmm…" he said. "It appears to
be working perfectly, but the screen is still black."
Suddenly, a voice
emanated from the SpyTech. "I see you, Leela…" The
voice was dry and raspy. "I'm going to come back for
you…then you can be with me for forever and ever and ever and
ever and ever…"
The voice droned on.
Leela stood there, trembling. "Fry…"
Leela sat on her
couch, stroking Nibbler. She was mulling over what had happened with
the machine. "Was that really him? It sounded like someone
else. I hope he's alright…" She slapped herself.
"Leela, get a hold of yourself! He could kill people easily!
How would he not be alright?" Leela shuddered. "I have a
man who could kill me easily coming back! I hope that's not
what he is planning…" She yawned and stood up. She
walked into her bedroom, and fell asleep for the night.
The next morning, she
discovered someone had sent her a letter. She opened it, and
discovered it was a folded piece of paper, with the words FOR LEELA
scrawled over it. She opened it, and the color drained from her face.
The letter said:
"I'm coming back. I've gotten
help, and the doctors say I'm only partially insane now.
Personally, I think they're all quacks and couldn't help
a 2-year-old with the urge to burn things. I guess I'll see you
in 3 days!
"PS: I have a weird tattoo now."
Leela dropped the
letter. "Partially insane?" she told herself. She shook
her head and picked up the letter. She put it in her pocket and took
the tubes to Planet Express.
Hermes looked over the
letter. "Hm," he said. "This letter must have
gotten to Leela's apartment late." Leela looked at him
anxiously. "So, Fry will arrive…tomorrow."
Leela almost fainted.
Part of her was happy,
but the other was terrified. Amy decided to break the silence.
"Sooo…and deliveries today?"
Hermes turned to her.
"As a matter of fact we do. We'd better hurry if we want
to get done in time to "greet" Fry.
The deliveries were a
grueling experience. They had to make a delivery to every single Dog
Doo planet, and planet Guillotine. When they got back, they weren't
beat up or injured, just tired. They plopped down on the couch, and
began watching All My Circuits.
Monique was in
Calculon's arms. "Goodbye Calculon… I need to tell
you my deep secret…" Calculon listened closely. "I
am actually your niece…"
Calculon screamed in
the air, "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!"
said Bender. "That wasn't shocking. That was just gross!"
The next day, Leela
was a little nervous to come to work. She walked up to the door,
sighed, and walked in. She walked down the hall, and stepped into the
meeting room. When she came in, she found everyone there. "Is
Fry here?" Everyone shook there heads.
They all heard someone
knocking on the door behind Leela. She opened it, and just stood in
awe. It was Fry, except dressed in black pants, boots, shirt, and a
trench coat. His skin was jet black, his hair was white, and he had a
skull tattoo over his face. "Hey there," he said,
grinning. He hugged Leela, and whispered something in her ear. "Sorry
about that skin and intestine thing. I wasn't sane then."
Leela returned his
embrace. "He seems sane," Leela thought. "But
how am I sure?"
Fry looked up at the
rest of the crew. "Hi!"
Amy asked him a
question: "What's with your hair and skin?"
Fry shrugged. "When
I was in the asylum, this started happening."
widened. "You were in an asylum for all this time?"
Fry nodded slowly.
Leela walked up to him.
"Listen, there was a …dream… I had involving you.
You killed me twice in it."
Fry winced. "How
did I kill you twice?"
Leela twiddled her
fingers nervously. "I fell asleep, you killed me, and then I
woke up in my dream and you killed me then."
Fry hugged Leela again.
"I wouldn't do that to you."
Leela kissed him on the
cheek. "I know you wouldn't."
Fry looked up. "Well,
I'm sane, so I guess I can return to work. I wonder what weird
stuff will happen to us?"
To be continued
Note: So, this was my fic. That last sentence Fry
used sort of tells you that weird stuff will be happening in other
fics. I hope ya enjoyed it.
The Dimension, Part 1
Fry casually laid on
the roof, staring at the moon. He was holding a skull, and was
talking to it. "I wonder why they let me out of the asylum so
early… maybe I wasn't that insane?" He threw the
skull into the water behind the PE building.
Leela walked onto the
roof. "Fry, the man from the asylum is on the vid-phone."
Fry sat up, and flung
himself inside. He tumbled down the stairs, and crashed onto the

Fry brushed himself
off. "I'm not hurt, though."
said Leela. "Now, stop acting suicidal and come here."
Leela and Fry both sat
down, and the man started talking without looking up. "Now-"
He gasped. "W-what are you doing here?" He pointed at
"You let me out
of the asylum," he answered.
Leela looked at both of
them. "Did you release Fry too early?"
The man shook his head.
"I don't understand… you should be at the

of Leela's face. "Why would Fry be at a cemetery?"
The man looked at her
strangely. "Didn't anyone tell you? Fry died in the
Fry paced back and
forth nervously. "I can't be dead… I'm right
here…" Leela just sat on the couch, dazed. Fry took his
trench coat off. He removed his shirt, and gasped at what he saw on
his chest. "Leela…look…"
Leela looked up, and
her jaw dropped. Fry had a brand in the shape of a skull with bones
fanning out of it sitting in the middle of his chest. "Fry…
that is the symbol of the Dead." Fry stood there, gaping at
A dark-robed figure
looked through a milky-white orb, watching Fry and Leela speak. He
held a massive scythe, and his robe was tattered around the edges.
Five dollars to anyone who can guess who he is. He spoke in a voice
that sounded as if its owner had been around since the beginning of
time. In this case, that's exactly right. "Fry, you weird
little mortal. You know I allowed you to go back. So what if I let
you go because you wouldn't stop babbling about Leela? It's
not my fault that I'd have to listen to it for the rest
of eternity… Shit! I'm musing to myself again!"
Fry and Leela woke up
in the middle of the desert.
"How the hell did
we end up here?"
They stood up, and
immediately dropped back down as several creatures shot overhead.
They stood up again,
and no creatures came over. They turned slowly. Fry tried to block
the sun with his hand. "Is that a mountain?"
The two adventurers
began the long trek towards the blurry image. They walked about 60
feet before the rumbling started. Leela nearly tripped. Fry caught
her arm and pulled her upright. The shaking became more intense.
"Is it an
earthquake?" asked Fry nonchalantly.
Aren't you scared?"
Fry shook his head. "I
can't die, remember?"
Leela and Fry both fell
to the ground. Suddenly, a massive worm shot up out of the ground. It
resembled an opaque bag of guts, with a gaping maw surrounded with
tiny, gripping claws. The worm was easily over 30 feet long.
"This planet has
bug problems," Fry whispered fearfully.
"I thought you
couldn't die," Leela whispered back.
remembered I can still be dismembered!"
A shadow passes over
them. They look up, and 2 automatic rifles drops down to both of
them. They immediately picked them up. Fry runs around to the tail of
the worm, and immediately starts climbing its mass. Leela fires at
its head, but the hide is just too thick. She fires at its mouth, but
years of eating very hard things had strengthened it. By now, Fry has
reached the beast's head. He finds a flap that he deducts is an
ear. "Listen to this you son of a bitch!" He shoved the
rifle into the flap, and unloaded a full round into its ear.
The bullets go through
and tear into the eardrum, then pass on and hit the bones that cause
hearing. These shatter, finally piercing the brain. The beast moans,
and its body collapses. Fry slides off, and falls headfirst into the
sand. "Mf mfff mfmmfmf!" he shouts.
Leela pulls his head
out, and he says, "That wasn't so tough."
Traude I was the King
of the Syau. He was a good soul. Now, his son, Traude II, rules the
Syau. The planet that Fry and Leela had just landed on was the Syau
home planet, Tredou 6. The Syau had already seen them there. The
Syau, thanks to the actions of a certain DOOP captain, did not trust
humans. This certain captain had called the Syau "ugly, upright
walking, skinny-ass Komodo dragons." In truth, they really DID
look like skinny Komodo dragons that walked on their hind legs, but
they weren't ugly. Anyway, after this insult, this captain
began to bomb certain parts of the planet. The Syau retaliated,
causing the DOOP and the Syau to become enemies.
Wait, why am I giving
you guys a history lesson? Especially one that I made up? You know
what? Let's get back to Fry and Leela.

night," Fry commented. Leela just shivered. Fry held her close
to him. "I wonder what the scorpions look like here?"
Leela huddled closer.
talking about the desert."
like to forget we're here so I don't feel so cold."
Fry took off his jacket
and wrapped it around Leela. She stopped shivering. "Thanks."
Fry smiled. They sat
that way for a few more minutes, until Fry realized that Leela was
asleep. Suddenly, a dozen Syau soldiers had surrounded them. They
wielded Cutters, a strange golden rifle that fired small near-solid
bursts of energy. Fry woke Leela up, and helped her stand.
said Fry, "did we do something wrong?"
The Syau did not
answer. They shoved their Cutters into Fry and Leela's backs,
and marched them towards a cart being pulled by 3 large, iguana-like
creatures. The couple fell into this cart, and the soldiers and the
cart began moving. Fry and Leela huddled together, and they both

"They seem to be
mates," one commented.
Another shook his head.
"No. What we know about humans suggests that mates would
be an incorrect term. At this age, it is most likely that they are in
the time period called dating."
Most of the others
nodded. A guard with a long scar running down his face put in his own
thought: "Perhaps they are together simply from fear."
Their captain, who had
not spoken the entire time, just sighed. "Shut up. Your
babbling is making me want to rip off my own ears."
Fry and Leela woke up
in a cell.
different here…" Fry thought. He looked at his hand and
realized it looked normal. He plucked one of his hairs and found it
to be orange. "I look… normal."
Leela woke up and
stared at Fry. "What happened to your skin and hair?"
Fry stood up. "I
think it was the guys who brought us here. I'd like to thank
them, if only I didn't think they wanted us as prisoners."
The door of the cell
They stared at the
Syau. He was dressed in gold armor, and a white cloak was draped over
his shoulders. His face was covered in scars.
"I am King Traude
II. I have decided on what to do with you two…" He
grabbed them both by the neck and dragged them to his throne room. "I
have seen that you two are DOOP citizens. Therefore, you are our

Traude did not answer.
He kicked open the double doors, and entered the throne room. He let
go of Fry and Leela's throats. They rubbed their tender necks,
and gasped at what was in front of them. The throne room was a
massive dome. A large pit took up most of this room. A portal was
stretched across this pit, and a walkway went over it. Said walkway
ended above the center of the portal. Traude stood here. He shouted
something that sounded like, "Dri Lekwo!" Fry was dragged
over to the king. He grabbed Fry, and… tossed him into the
screamed Leela as her lover spiraled down, and Leela sobbed as he
Traude turned to her.
"Send her back to the cell." Leela was dragged off, and
her grief-racked sobs echoed down the halls.
Fry awoke on a vast,
blue plain. The sky was pitch black, and the ground glowed. He stood
up, and put his hand on his head. "Wait, what the…"
he stared at his hand. It was blue and glowing. He screamed and
grabbed a crystal floating by. He gasped at his reflection. His skin
and hair had turned blue, with no lines to show where something ended
or began. His eyes and mouth were white voids. He let go of the
crystal. He walked across the plain. "Is there-" He
stopped abruptly. His voice had changed, too. It was his own, mixed
with a deep voice, a high female voice, and a screeching sound. Fry
sighed. "I wonder how Leela would react if she saw me this way…
she'd probably scream and faint." He groaned and sat
down. "I suppose anyone would." He laid back, and
stared up at the black sky. "This is my new world… and I
can do nothing about it."
Leela was thrown onto
the cell floor. She immediately curled up and started sobbing. "What
happened to Fry? Where did they send him? What happened… what
happened…He's probably dead." This caused Leela to
burst into a fresh amount of tears. "Why did they take Fry from
me? Why?!" She found that Fry's trench coat was
still on the floor. She crawled over to it and held it close to her
body. She sobbed into it.
Several Syau observed
this from a hidden camera in the wall. "She mourns and grieves
excessively… perhaps human relationships are similar to that
of lovebirds?" the lead Syau pondered.
"You mean that
Earth bird species that love their mate so much that one dies if they
are without the other?" another questioned.
"Only one can
die, though. Death does not exist in the Dimension… yet Life
does not either…"
"He will be
trapped there until we bring him out."
"His mate might
die before then."
The Syau all stared at
the grieving Leela. One Syau farted. "Eww!"
Fry discovered that
the blue field that eh walked upon was actually floating through the
black sky. Fry walked to a small, blue rock on the ground. "Rocks,
bare ground, and me." He shook his head. "I wish I could
see Leela… just one more time…"
He was struck with an
idea. He scooted over to the edge, and jumped. He fell, fell, fell,
and fell. He stopped all of the sudden. He felt himself being drawn
to the center of this place. He soon reached it. It looked like a
massive, blue orb. He felt a tingling. He looked down and saw that
his body was being drawn apart. Yet, he felt no pain.
"If I die, then I
can at least watch Leela from heaven…" His now
disassembled body was sucked into the orb.
END OF PART 1
Ah ha! It sucked, right? If you said no, then
good for you, Part 2 is coming soon. If you said yes, then screw you,
you're getting a Part 2. Ah well. Also, if you see a fiction
called The Insane, you can thank me for that floating log. I meant it
to be a prologue.
