Aliens Versus The Fan Boy
"...glorious day in the corp!"
Fan Boy opened his eyes. The sounds of an Alien movie surely being responsible, as engrained on his memory as they were. But no! Lo and behold, rising from the cocoon of plastic, was Sergeant Apone.
"Oh, gee, golly whizz. We gonna' get us some aliens!"
Several of the Marines turned, frowning, muttering curses under their breath, some wanting to vomit their guts up and continued on their way. But noo... Fan Boy had other ideas. Most of them involving leering at certain female individuals.
"Who's Snow White?" Asked one.
"Oh, her... Rumour has it-"
"No. Not her. Him."
And so the consternation carried on for a good hour or so. None of them knowing who the hell the bizarre miscreant was, nor why he was carrying a wrench with him and trailing after Bishop. At one point Hicks had to ask, but after receiving a shifty reply and something about wanting to "whack its head" to see "if it's an android", plus some weird detail about how the civilian was "really some shit hot lady who knows some bad shit about aliens and stuff", just decided not to bother.
A few minutes into the meal and Fan Boy was eyeing Hudson up something bizarre. Hudson, characteristically insecure about his manhood, had become very nervous. Every time his hands moved, Fan Boy looked like he was going to spontaneously combust and muttered "The knife! The knife! The knife!" under breath at least fifty times in a row at one time.
Nobody actually wanted to give Fan Boy a weapon. Most of them were sure that if he got even more excited, that he would act as a low yield nuclear device as it was, but still... Regulations.
"BUG HUNT!" He began yelling, screaming round the loading bay. Arms stretched out like an aeroplane and running a severe danger of Drake making good on his promise to "castrate the little bastard" along the way.
