Wild Kratts Fan Story: Sleepless Night

DISCLAMER! I Don't Own Wild Kratts


Martin Kratt was sitting in his room. The Wild Kratts Team had decided to move to another habitat to check out the wild animals there. He didn't really mind it though, he loves being in the outdoors looking at the animals, and playing harmless tricks on his little brother. It just getting there was sometimes boring, and Martin didn't know what to do.

And for some reason, he couldn't sleep. He tried lying in bed, but it didn't work. He even tried warm milk, but he still didn't felt tired. Martin finally got up and out his room. 'Maybe I'll see if Jimmy needs any help flying Tortuga,' he thought to himself.

Martin made his way to the "head" of the ship. As he enters, he notice that the lights where off, for safety reasons. Luckily for him, Jimmy Z was driving. "Hey Jimmy," he called. Jimmy took his eyes off the air for a minute to see Martin coming in. "Hi Martin. Couldn't sleep?" he asks the blue animal lover. Martin shook his head as he sat down next to the driver. "No, I can't." he answer.

"Have you tried counting sheep?" Jimmy asks, putting his attention back into flying. "Up to 999," Martin answers. "How about drinking warm milk?" "I had three glasses full." "Reading a book?" "For about an hour and a half," Martin yawns.  Jimmy thought for a moment. "Have you tried playing a video game?" "Why?" the blue Kratt brother asks.

"I'm just making sure you tried everything," said Jimmy. "Wouldn't that keep me up?" Martin asks him. "It might, but it might also make you tired enough to sleep." "And give me nightmares," Martin said as he looks out the cockpit. The starlit night was beautiful, to say the least. No moon or city lights to block it. Just stars twinkling in the night.

"Wow. That's a lot of stars," Martin said with both wonder and tiredness in his voice. "Yea, it has a safe feeling to it, ya know," Jimmy commented. Martin looks at the sky some more. "A safe feeling," he repeated. Jimmy glance at Martin.

'Martin looks so relaxed just watching the stars,' Jimmy thought to himself. Martin continues to watch the stars, not really noticing that he is falling asleep. "It's amazing how many stars we could see when we are away from cities," Martin said, yawning. "It's also amazing that some stars we see are whole galaxies while some others aren't even around anymore. We could also see some planets in our Solar System as well as satellites. Pretty cool, huh Martin?" Jimmy explains.

Jimmy stayed silent for a few seconds, noticing that Martin didn't answer. "Martin?" Jimmy looks over to see Martin sleeping soundly in the chair. He could hear the blue Kratt brother snoring softly. 'Martin looks comfortable,' thought Jimmy as he looks at Martin's relaxing face. "Sleep well," the driver said to his sleeping friend, driving Tortuga into the night.
LTS: I may have gotten Jimmy out of character near the end, but I like astronamy and I wanted to keep it with Martin and Jimmy.

I wrote this story a few days ago, trying to get my new laptop's battery low enough to charge it. When I started it, I had no idea what I wanted to put down, or how I was going to write it.

When I did had an idea what the story was going to be, I thought about adding Chris in there. The idea was that Chris had a nightmare and he came in to see if talking to his brother or Jimmy might help him get back to sleep. But I was arguing to myself what the nightmare was about, and I like the idea that Martin and Jimmy had a little talk, so I scrap the idea.

When I was done with the story, I was so proud that I had to show my mother, besides it was late and she was the only other person up at the time. She like it, but she kind of wished that I could make my own stories. I told her, fan-stories first to practice, then I'll write my own, (I already have an idea what my own story is about, but writing it is taking some time). Mother even said that the writing is suited for young readers, which made me happy.

BGS here wanted the ending to be Jimmy driving the Tourtuga into the sunrise, but I thought that it took away the peacful stars effect. Mom didn't think so, but I'm the writer, and I like this ending so that Martin could get some night sleep.

*Edit* I did some changes to the story. I hope it's better now.

Wild Kratts, a.k.a. cartoon Martin Kratt, Jimmy Z and Tortuga, belongs to PBS.

Wow. This is sweet. ^^ A cute moment between characters that didn't have to rely on romance to be pulled off. I like it. ^^ And I agree about the staying with the stars thing. The sun would have ruined the "nightime" feel the story had. You know, nice and cool, lights are either off or dim...XD Sorry, getting carried away. ^^

And the Astronomy was put in well, it didn't feel forced in, like in some of the fan-stories I've read, they've tried to stay close to the show format, but the animal facts seem forced some how. :/ But your facts didn't, so that's really nice! ^^

Oh, getting carried away again. :X): This is The PrettyMariposa, signing off!
