Old College Try by HPL-The-Outsider Old College Try by HPL-The-Outsider
Inspired by the beautiful song by The Mountain Goats. I believe it will probably be a cold day in Hell before Capcom gives us fans a single hint of Cammy/Chun yuri, but then I've always been one for lost causes. My whole life is one.

Lyrics:

From the housetops to the gutters
From the ocean to the shore
The warning signs have all been bright and garish
Far too great in number to ignore

From the cities to the swamplands
From the highways to the hills
Our love has never had a leg to stand on
From the aspirins to the crosstops to the alovils
But I will walk down to the end
With you
If you will come all the way down
With me

From the entrance to the exit
Is longer than it looks from where we stand
I wanna say I'm sorry for stuff I haven't done yet
Things will shortly get completely out of hand
I can feel it in the rotten air tonight
In the tips of my fingers
In the skin of my face
In the weak last gasp of the evening's dying light
In the way those eyes I've always loved
Illuminate this place
Like a trash can fire
In a prison cell
Like the searchlights
In the parking lots of hell
I will walk down to the end
With you
If you will come all the way down
With me

Rather emotional.

Remember you got friends who are there for you.

Lovely sketch. Nothing quite like friendship in troubled times, eh?

You're right about Capcom not giving any hints on Cammy/Chun yuri. However, having played SFxTekken it's good to see they have made Cammy & Chun-Li official partners. (At least in the game) www.youtube.com/watch?v=_cAC7j… But I fear that's probably as far as we're going to get.

I suppose we have to leave it to our imaginations. :)

Thank you. You know, I have that game, and I've barely played it, but I like the fact that they're an official team in it.

I thought you'd like it...As do I. :D
It's easy to figure out who partners who because their portraits are next to each other in the character select screen. The only exceptions are Akuma and Orge (The boss character.)

:) Thanks. Also, for me, this song is like, knowing that it's not going to work. That you're basically doomed, but you're willing to give it the old college try, despite everything. I feel a lot like that.
