Am I a big enough Courage fan now? Can I make a Krabby Patty now?

Chapter 7: Contaminated
Courage kept to the shadows as he watched the continuing scene unfold. Computer had been right about there being an evacuation. Several police cars returned carrying the people who had been ordered to leave due to an 'animal attack' at the diner. Courage was able to overhear them talking about it. This also allowed him to finally leave his hiding place since there were now enough people around for his presence to go unnoticed. Between the gas station, diner, and a few other businesses down the street, there were plenty of people who'd been displaced. Though many of the men in black still remained, none of them took notice of the small, non-glowing dog. They were, however, going around and questioning people though.
Courage sat on the curb in front of the gas station as people either went inside, left to go back to their respective buildings or cars, or shuffled onto the bus that was finally preparing to leave. He couldn't stop the feelings of despair that

“How does that feel?” Computer asked as Courage laid his head down onto the bag that held their things. It wasn't particularly comfortable but it did get the job done.
“It's good enough.” He answered before closing his eyes and letting out a huge yawn. They had managed to get to the bus unseen, but it wasn't scheduled to leave for a little while longer. Computer was keeping his head low as he sat in the seat to avoid any chance of being seen through the window.
“Dog, what on earth were you doing back there?” He finally asked. “I don't think I've ever seen you so scared before, and that's saying a lot.” His eyes wandered downward until they fell upon Courage's bloodied leg.
Courage opened his eyes and sat back up. Despite his best efforts to not sound like a raving lunatic, he still couldn't stop himself from sounding like he had gone insane anyway. “It was those voices! They were there in the dark! They followed me

Chapter 5: Self-Defensed To Death
“C'mon, man. You want to hang everything on your wall!” The long haired farmer argued with the hunter. His speech kept slurring in a few places as he spoke. “If it were up to you, everythin' in that blasted swamp up north would have gone extinct years ago! Besides, I bet we could sell this thing to one of those sciency folk for sum good cash!”
The lanky drunk rubbed his chain. “Hey, didn't Robby shoot down that one duck with two heads a few years ago? Those science guys payed 'em quite a bit for the corpse.”
The hunter let out a booming laugh. “Now you're speak'n my language!” He produced a pocket knife from his belt and placed it up against Computer's throat. “Let's slice this thing and split the cash! It'll be much easier than locking it up in a cage until one of those science guys show up! Maybe they'll even let me keep the head!”
Computer's eyes narrowed, clearly enraged by the treatment h

Chapter 4: Dinner For Twelve
“You've got the worst throw ever, you know that?” Courage tiredly huffed as he climbed out of the tunnel.
“Well, you've had arms and plenty of hand-eye coordination practice you're entire life, so you don't have any place to talk.” Computer quipped back as he too hopped out of the tunnel.
Exhausted, Courage went over to the first chair he could find and shakily climbed up onto it. He very nearly didn't make it even after a lot of huffing and puffing. All that playing around had sapped him of what little energy he had. He couldn't help but worry that another attack might be just around the corner. If his illness knocked him for several days again both he and Computer would be in a lot of trouble, especially in a place like this.
Speaking of Computer, he was eying him rather worriedly. “We shouldn't have kept going like that.” He spoke. “Stay here and rest, I'll go find us dinner.” He then took a moment to look

Chapter 3: And The Winner Is...
Try as he might, Courage could not find Computer. He shuffled through the entire structure but never once did he find evidence that the glowing dog was lurking about. Unlike he himself, who made plenty of noise as he crawled through the tunnels, Computer had somehow found a way to make no sound at all, if he really was moving around to begin with. Of course, he would have been discovered by now if he was hiding in one spot. That glow would give him away.
“Ugh, I've been in here so long that the stench doesn't even bother me anymore!” Courage whispered to himself. “At least I won't have to smell Compute now either. Who knows when we'll get a chance to take a bath.”
Slowly but surely he was making his way to the bottom of the structure again. His newest plan was to try and spot Computer from the outside. If that smug machine was still moving around, he'd eventually catch sight of his glow through one of the windows and would finally

Chapter 2: Moosing Around
It was when the steady, rhythmic bumping of Courage's seat stopped that he woke up. The humming of the engine had been a constant sound, even in his sleep, and its absence was noticeable enough to wake him. As he opened his eyes and blinked the blurriness out of them, he noticed that something heavy was leaning on him. He turned his head slightly to the side and found Computer fast asleep as well.
“Hey, I think we're at the next rest stop.” He said in a quiet voice. Several people were passing their seat as they made their way to the front of the bus.
Computer began to stir, then let out a gasp and shot up. “Oh, dear. I must have-” He quickly said, giving Courage a rather sympathetic expression. “I'm sorry. I said that I was going to stay up and-”
Courage shook his head. “It's okay. I didn't have any nightmares anyway. How about you?”
He suspected that Computer had a nightmare free nap as well or else they very l

Chapter 1: Visions Of Things To Come
Courage awoke with a stretch and a yawn. The first thing his eyes met was the dusty, wooden ceiling of the attic. The warm glow of Computer's screen bathed over his body, mixed in with the early morning sunlight.
He was home. He was safe. Muriel could be heard humming her happy little tune downstairs and even the smell of breakfast was wafting its way up into the attic. Life had finally gone back to normal after returning from the mountain. Well, maybe not completely normal...
“Good morning, Courage.” Computer greeted him. The words he spoke trailed across his screen like they always did. Even now Courage could sense the smile in his friend's voice. It was so hard to believe that he really had given up living with Nina and his life in that dog body just for him.
“Morning.” He answered with yet another yawn.
Everything in their life was perfect, all aside from one thing.

Chapter 143: The Beginning Of The End
“What are you writing?” Courage asked, hovering closer to Computer.
The glowing dog had procured a pencil and paper sometime earlier that morning and had been writing ever since. Courage had seen him rip apart at least five pieces of paper thus far, apparently dissatisfied with whatever his mysterious writings were about.
“It's none of your business, so back off!” He threatened, brandishing the pencil like a sword.
“Come on! Let me see!” Courage nagged, daring to maneuver around his friend in an attempt to get a peek from behind.
Computer clutched the paper to his chest and shifted around, blocking him from seeing his writing. “I told you already, this isn't for you to read so stop being obnoxious!”
Courage couldn't keep himself from gasping as a grin widened

Chapter 143: A Party Indeed
It was at that moment when Nina called Courage down for supper did Computer begin to panic all over again. He'd thought that he had convinced himself that everything was going to work out, but now his fears were bubbling up to the surface all over again. If he failed at this, how could he ever truly prove to Courage that he was serious about being a real friend? Nothing else mattered except doing one genuinely nice thing for him. If he could just show him that, he'd-
“Computer?” Nina asked, poking him in the shoulder. This dragged him out of his panic filled thoughts.
“Y-yes?” He asked, looking up at her.
“You were staring off into space with this look on your face like the world is about to end. Try not to spaz out, okay? It's just dinner.”
“I know, I know.” He sighed. His eyes wandered back up to the table were all the food was sitting. He could still spot his own dish, which he desperately hoped Courage woul
