You wake up in a white room. There is nothing here.... barring a few other people.

And hanging above you is a white sign.

It reads: THERE IS NO CHARP!

And it's hung by a thin string and there are some knives on the floor.

Sure would be a shame if that started a ChARP.

EVENT INFO.

Who: Everyone is invited. You can make character sheets if you want.

What:
Nothing. There is no CHARP. ( It's a game where you help the narrator find his lost love.... the Plot)

When: December 14th! 12PM EST/ 11 AM CS

Where: This RP will have a ChaRP room once it's ready.

HOW: This is a Action High Fantasy ChaRP with improvised GMing. That means you should interact with each other. There are definitely going to be moments where you can work together ( or against each other depending on who you plan to play). There will 100% be In game consequences.... so choose wisely, because I promise you one thing. There is a CHARP.

If you need any ChaRP tips, this ChaRP will follow all the tips Diana gives. Otherwise have fun.​

I'm mostly used to Modern-Fantasy and things with some level of Slice of Life to them, though I'm willing to try anything even dice RP. I do think my fight scenes read a bit odd though, it's a work in progress... I also have a penchant for Comedy.
I have spun the wheel of OCs and wow this is going to be interesting. Also, I see somebody really likes There is no Game, good taste~
(And yes, it's a pokémon, it was for a group RP where humans had gone instinct and pokémon were now the dominating race >3<)





The Essentials:

Name: Miranda Duvet Pounce (Mi, Mira)
Age: Fifteen
Gender: Female
Species: Skitty

Fatal Flaw: Miranda is a really jumpy individual sometimes nearing paranoia. She's scared of big Pokemon before she has even met them, imagining they could outright eat or squash her since she's so tiny. New things instigate her curiosity but as soon as something unexpected happens, for example, a sudden noise, Mi will squeak and cower in fear of whatever it was. This Skitty's colourful imagination seems to always make her think that the worst will happen: Maybe a thief will jump from behind this tree, maybe we're gonna be caught and sent to prison before they can ever let us talk! Maybe that spider will kill me on my sleep!
Obviously, most of the 'what if's are too surreal to happen, but Miranda will need a friend to assure her of that. Her silly delusions can keep her from doing fun things she adores or even get in the way of her going outside. All because 'someone said this', 'I read about that', or 'that could happen'. Another issue is that it takes her far longer than most to adapt to new situations and people. New places seem to give her quite a dose of anxiety.

Saving Grace: Once settled in, Miranda will start to slowly open up. What's behind of all the anxiety and vivid imagination, is a sweet little kitten with a large heart. Mi's capacity of understanding others is quite unusual making her able to forgive even the most terrible of deeds. Sure, bullies are scary, but in the occasion that said bully shares it's hard past, Miranda will be the first one to jump in the scene and probably offer a hug followed by a heartfelt 'Oh, you poor poor thing!'. Her empathy also makes her very emotional, being the one to burst crying with all kinds of sad stories, no matter if they're not actually ALL that sad to everyone else in the room.

Appearance:

Considered kinda short even amongst other Skitty, Miranda is 1' 9'' and weights a feeble 69,9 lbs. In addition to their normal looks of pink and cream, these pokemon have evolved to become bipedal, their hind paws while still cat-like, getting more closer to the body line giving them the stability to run on two legs without face-planting on the ground. Despite the big advancement in standing, grabbing things is still a bit of a task. The toes from the front paws evolved to be more mobile, able to separate well from the other toes at will and bend inwards a bit earlier, making it so that the paw itself bends in half, similar to what humans were capable of doing. However as the toes have not changed shape or size, trying to actively grab thin objects proves to be a challenge and there's not much support, meaning the object might fall on quick paw movements or if the Skitty is bumped into/shaken/pushed/pulled. The 'half-assed' evolution makes it so that if the pokemon desires to run on four paws for a quicker escape, it still can. This practice is frowned upon socially though, advised to be their last resort and only for extreme emergencies.

Miranda herself is a green-eyed Skitty and her clothing style is rather tomboyish, composed mostly of jeans, shorts, sleeved T-shirts and sneakers. 'Rather tomboyish' because the assortment of colors and cute prints throws that concept a bit out of the window, especially once you see her ribbon and collar collection. Mi loves to wear those on her neck and sometimes may swap the ribbon to be on the tail instead, always in a lace her mom carefully tied for her.

Personality: Considerate [+], Forgiving [+], Cautious [+], Gentle [+],
Obsequious [/], Timid [/], Sociable [/], Curious [/],
Lonely [-], Cowardly [-], Dismayed [-], Suspicious [-].

Mi is extremely gentle, speaking in a low, softly voice most of the time. Her words, despite being rather simple, are sincere, kind and often good advice/encouragement. She's always measuring her words and reactions, not wanting to hurt others feelings or anger them in any way. Miranda prefers to be everyone's friend, or at least pleasant to everyone else than to be selfish and act on impulse, though pleasing absolutely everyone is very hard, nearly impossible, putting the Skitty in an impasse.
Sometimes her self-control will slip, and the girl's curiosity and excitement will speak louder. Then Mi might go dashing straight to whatever caught her attention, forgetting to be cautious to stay out of danger. Especially if it's a grassy field, she adores running around free in these and later lying down for a nap in the sun. Like the kitty she is, Mi is easily amused and impressed by everyday objects. Something extremely mundane to others will be the world's best thing for her, drawing her to fiddle around with it until she either gets bored or her energy runs out.

When meeting another pokemon, Miranda is timid at first, speaking ever lower than normal, with her heart pounding and her flight instinct ready to kick-in in case something goes wrong. If it's too big or scary of a pokemon, she'll curve her back into herself, appearing smaller and mew in fear of the stranger. It's their call to attempt to calm her or simply leave her be. Going past this stage, they'll have a friendly kitten who loves her friends a lot. Mi can come across as dependent on others, often asking them what they want, or asking for permission to do things, before actually doing them.
She's a very lonely individual and may feel cast aside, unneeded, on situations that are not what they seem. When feeling like this, Miranda will grow distant from others, failing to listen to conversations and barely responding. Once the feeling becomes unbearable, she'll make an excuse to leave the group, searching for a peaceful and isolated place where she could think about it, or cry. Mi does not desire for her friends to see her in this frail state. She prefers that they can see her as this cheerful and kind pokemon, rather than the fearful, broken kitty she actually sees herself as.

Often, Miranda lacks the courage to deal with her own problems. Her first instinct is to run away and it takes her an incredible amount of mental power to not oblige with it. Not being alone helps, and having people need her help is even better, as her loyalty to them kicks in and she mindlessly throws herself in the issue to assist. Mi is unable to hold grudges for too long. When someone wrongs her, of course, she'll be upset and frustrated at the occasion, but come with a sincere apology in an hour or two and no matter what you did, you'll be forgiven in the spot.
Due to her almost paranoid anxiety and fear, Miranda will be suspicious of an individual that appears to be too friendly. She'll think the want something out of her, or maybe are tricking her into trusting them, just to be caught off-guard when she's alone with them. This is especially strong towards big and scary-looking pokemon and it's a throwback to her childhood incident. It will take her some time and there might be relapses of the behavior in the future.



History: Born in Rustboro City, Miranda was always a curious little kitty. Being an only child of a pair of Delcatty, Helen and Noah, her parents had been too overprotective of her, making all kinds of rules and stories to keep her from harm, homeschooling her in the start and not allowing her to play outside or with other kids, unless an adult was coming along and they knew her friends. Thus, when Mi was given lighter permissions to explore, by 8, she took the opportunity in a hardcore way. The Skitty wandered off, away from her little cabin home and chasing after a squirrel, found herself lost inside the dense forest between Rustboro and Petalburg City.
It was a terrifying experience. The woods of Hoenn were vast and Miranda had been so distracted on her way in, that she couldn't remember where she had come from! To make it worse, the night started to fall, a cold icy breeze seemed to punish the little Skitty for her stupidity...and then there was a growl. Out of the mass of trees, an older, probably wild, Poochyena appeared and the grin it had was an indicator that it's intentions we're clearly not good. Not waiting for the imminent attack, Miranda picked a random way and ran as fast as could. She'll never know if the hyena pokemon was just going to pick on her or actually pounce and end her life, but it had been certainly a wise decision to not stay to figure it out. Crawling into a little hole in a tree, small enough that her pursuer would not be able to get inside, Mi managed to avoid the danger. Scared and alone, the Skitty vowed to never, ever, ever wander off away from her parents again, if she ever got back home after this.

The next morning, Miranda heard her name being called. That chase had gotten her fairly closer to where she had entered and her dad had been desperately looking for her. The Skitty crawled back out, covered in mud and leaves and dashed towards the voice. Noah looked tired, he had been up all night searching for her. The expression of joy and relief when he saw Miranda was safe, she had a couple of scratches here and there from branches but still alive, would be a face the Skitty would never forget...Neither the lecture she was given afterwards, but Mi knew she deserved every single word of that. This little adventure made Miranda an even greater shut-in. Her first experience on the longed-for world, beyond the field near home, had been a disaster. She was reminded of that terrible night every time she attempted to approach the door, fearing that other wild, aggressive pokemon were out there, searching for her, waiting for her to be reckless again.

At first, not having their daughter stroll off without permission was a delight for the Delcatty pair, but as that behavior continued on, already a month after the occurrence, the couple started getting worried that it wasn't just the effect of having learned her lesson. Miranda refused to go outside, even with an adult, and her friends had started pestering the Pounce's about her health. Not knowing what else to do, they called a Psychologist, a kind and calm Azumarill called Dana, to help them out. Of course, having a stranger inside was the least that Miranda wanted. It was a long and difficult process, but eventually, Dana's kindness and determination towards the case reached the Skitty. From there on, the Azumarill helped Miranda fight her anxiety and fear. Gradually Mi was back outside, first with company and later by herself. The suggestion for her to attend a normal school was also listened to, with Helen staying around for the first month, encouraging her daughter to interact instead of staying with her, until it was clear Miranda had gotten used to the routine and could handle it by herself.

It was some progress, but as the years passed by it became clear Mi was too dependent of her family. She had accommodated herself, even with the constant guiding and advising of Dana, there was not a single drop of aspiration, for anything. It had been a hard decision, but the Pounce couple came to realize that if they really wanted Miranda to grow, they had to let her go, send her away to new experiences and new people. Otherwise, she would always rely on them for everything and that would be potentially bad for her future.
Choosing Miraculum Academy, a place prized for its encouragement of dedication and hardwork, for this experience and after a very very long discussion over why they were doing this, Miranda's parents enrolled her in the academy for High School, expecting that it would her find that spark of aspiration the Skitty had lost in the way.

  • Singing (It's not a spectacular voice, but it's pleasant and calming enough);
  • Listening to others;
  • Offering advise.

Fighting style: If by herself, Miranda will not fight back and instead attempt to run away as fast as she can. Depending on the setting of the fight, there's a possibility that it will remind her of the night a Poochyena chased her and the Skitty will freeze into place, too terrified to move as if that terrible night was actually happening in that exact moment, and not in the past.
The presence of a friend is reassuring, making it harder for Mi to reach that state, knowing that someone else can defend her. Cowering behind said friend is a very common occurrence, but upon noticing they can't do it alone and need her help, she might jump into the fight without a second thought, usually on a desperate and risky tackle of the enemy so that her partner can act fast. Alongside this, Miranda's repertory consists mostly of: Distractions and pleas, growling in an attempt to look scary (doesn't quite work as intended but sometimes it helps) and spinning/slapping the heck of the air in the middle of panic, hoping her tail/hands will hit...something at the very least. Turning her tail to an opponent, however, is a bad move as they need only to grab and pull it to throw Mi off balance, possibly making her fall.
It's very apparent that she's not a fighter, but instead a mediator. Always trying to get everyone to be happy again.

THERE ARE NO LOGS


  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    You wake up in a white room. There is nothing here.... barring a few other people.And hanging above you is a white sign.It reads: THERE IS NO CHARP!And it's hung by a thin string and there are some knives on the floor.


    Today at 10:01 AM


  • Loveless Loveless :
    The little Skitty had a terrible presentment about this... It was true that Miraculum's Academy floor was a similar kind of blinding whiteness, she remembered how disorientating it had been on her eyes the few times there, but... There was also nothing else but the white. There was not a building, or other pokémon or literally anything else in this place! A scary thought sunk in almost immediately, this was not her school and the normal type was probably completely alone in here too. "...H- He- hello...?", Miranda's timid tone, nearly a single high pitched squeak resonated through the ample empty space as she trembled. She hated this already. The assortment of knives didn't help.


    Today at 10:18 AM


  • Crow Crow :
    "What a load of bullshit!" that was all that emerged from the tiny delinquent's mouth. Ranko growled at the sign as she delivered a few punches and a powerful kick to the sign. "What is this sorry excuse of a place? This sorry excuse of... an excuse?" She was so focused on her rage she couldn't even turn to see the others.


    Today at 10:23 AM


  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    God, who's idea was it to get drunk over his ex-boyfriend breaking up with him? Was it Sebastian or Lisa's? Fuck, he couldn't remember, all that he had did know was that he had past out drunk in a NY hotel room. This however was not that place, honestly, he had no clue where this was. He wasn't even sure if he was sober yet entirely, there was knive, a sign written by what he could only assume was a small child saying there is no Charp. What the fuck was a CHARP? Beau Ashby didn't know, but he felt like he didn't want to find out. Oh and a skitty. What was in that alcohol. " Uhhh..... hi."


    Today at 10:24 AM


  • Loveless Loveless :
    Miranda had immediately squealed startled, flinching back when another person had suddenly shown up and made themselves known very very loudly! To make it all worse, the creature in front of her, or rather the two of them matched with book descriptions of the so-called 'trainers', bipedal furless monsters of old that had no moves but instead the ability to imprison pokémon inside little balls! Now the Skitty really felt in danger, her tail swishing with worry behind her who had curled up on herself as if trying not to call attention. No reply, just frightened squeak like meows and even more trembling against a corner of the white room. Oh, how much she wanted to be home now.


    Today at 10:31 AM


  • Crow Crow :
    "Oh, hey," Ranko quells her anger and turns to Beau, "well, this is awkward. Well, awkward is better than nothing. Name's Ryugasaki Ranko, and I'm aiming to be the top sukeban of Tokyo's Schools," Ranko approached Mi, reaching a hand out, her scowl shifting to a light smile. "Did I... scare you, little guy?"


    Today at 10:35 AM


  • Loveless Loveless :
    "A-A-! ...Actually, I'm a girl...?", was the only reply Miranda had managed to give the allegedly female 'trainer' as she had approached, staring at the hand with fixated green eyes as if anticipating it to do something terrible, "But... yeah. Yeah, you... did..."


    Today at 10:38 AM


  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    " Name's Beau Ashby. I think that's a skitty but I don't come from a world where pokemon are real... well outside of this," He pulled out his phone and pulled up pokemon Go. Surpsingsly and hillariously, the white room was a gym and next to the skitty was an invisble to anything but the phone Delcatty. " Maybe we shokd...


    Today at 10:40 AM


  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    " PLEASE DO NOT KNOCK THE SIGN DOWN. NO REASON TO DO THAT.... NONE AT ALL." A voice rang out, suspiciously.


    Today at 10:41 AM

  • Crow Crow :
    "You don't have to be afraid of me," Ranko says to the Skitty, then looks towards the voice, "BUT YOU DO!" She briefly looks to Miranda and Beau. "Let's wreck it." Her eyes focused on the sign. "Let's wreck it gooood."


    Today at 10:49 AM

  • Loveless Loveless :
    The Skitty's ear twitched ever so slightly when the other 'trainer' had spoken, this one allegedly male judging by its voice, his words only brought confusion to poor Miranda, "Wha- How do you- Wait, not real???", she had tried making the questions, head a bit tilted. Unlike any of the pokémon in the mobile game, Miranda was standing bipedally and wearing girly-ish casual clothing just as a human would. She also carried a backpack with her, another unexpected detail. And then a new voice yet again! Once more the kitty pokémon had curled up protectively, even if the female 'trainer' had told her to not be afraid her mind knew better. Especially when she acted like a bully... "Eh, no thanks! I pass, who knows what they'll do if they get angry...", she laughed nervously still backed up against the wall.


    Today at 10:53 AM

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    Lillibeth woke to the sound of people shouting. A strange room...lighting that...came from panels in the ceiling. She got up and smoothed out her dress. The last thing she could remember, she was on a train to the frontier, headed toward a life as a mail-order bride. That future now seemed as remote as the Moon. But...what was this future?


    Today at 10:53 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    Beau considered for a moment. " I mean, someone made sure there was a way for us to knock it down..... so maybe we should wreck it. It can't be worse than this."


    Today at 10:55 AM

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    Lillibeth read the sign. "There is no CHARP." Which made no more sense than anything else. Oh. And there was the strangest cat she had ever seen--and it talked! Also, there were knives. She picked one up and inspected it. A knife was a very useful tool for a variety of purposes...including self-defense in a pinch, not that she had any knife-fighting skills.


    Today at 10:56 AM

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    "Excuse me," she said in a Boston accent, "but where are we?"


    Today at 10:56 AM

  • Loveless Loveless :
    "These 'trainers' are insane...!", Miranda had quietly muttered to herself, suddenly with her attention on yet, a new one of them. This was, extremely uncomfortable, but hopefully, they'd care more for the sign than her... Hopefully.


    Today at 10:59 AM

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    "'Trainers?'" Lillibeth said. The...talking cat...was soft-spoken, but words coming from a...talking cat...seized her attention. "Is this some sort of 'training' facility?


    Today at 11:03 AM

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    Observing the creature more closely, it appeared that the little being was as frightened as it was adorable. "I'm not going to hurt you," she said, awkwardly looking for a way to stow the knife. No sheath, and her dress did not have a belt.


    Today at 11:05 AM

  • Loveless Loveless :
    Miranda did not trust the new female 'trainer' at all, especially not when the one in a dress and approaching had a knife with them, pretending to be friendly. Nu-uh, this was how they captured pokémon, she'd not listen to anything they were saying! Instead of coming closer, the Skitty continued to back herself against the corner even further, at this point as if trying to pass through the wall itself. She might have to plan an escape soon enough if things continued this way...


    Today at 11:12 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    Beau looked over at them. " I don't think it is...." He picked up the knife carefully. " Should I throw it?"


    Today at 11:13 AM

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    Furthermore, it only vaguely looked like a cat. Its tail in particular seemed to be poking a thumb in the eye of physics, what with that bulbous tuft at the end of a wire-thin strand. Her mind scrambled for an explanation for any of the things she was seeing. She had read Verne's From the Earth to the Moon and many times on her journey West she had wished she could make just such a journey. Far away at least, from her intended fate. And so, something on that order seemed to have taken place. The cat-creature especially had to be from the Moon, or perhaps one of the other planets.


    Today at 11:14 AM

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    Seeing the cat-creature's reaction to her, Lillibeth backed away. "I'm sorry. I didn't mean to scare you. May I ask what planet you are from?"


    Today at 11:15 AM

  • Loveless Loveless :
    Seeing the second female 'trainer' go back a little had been a huge relief to Miranda, who had immediately let out a sigh and returned to standing by the corner rather than getting squashed against it. Though, the question made her ears shoot up suddenly in shock, "...The, Pokémon... World?", the way the Skitty had answered it made it seem like she had expected the other to know that already.


    Today at 11:20 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    Beau wasn't even sure what to make of that interaction.


    Today at 11:29 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    " SERIOUSLY, DON'T BREAK MY SIGN. I SPENT HOURS WORKING ON IT."


    Today at 11:30 AM

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    "Uh..." Of course Lillibeth should have deduced that the being would have its own name for its planet. "I am from the third planet out from the Sun. We call it 'Earth.' Well, in English. There are other languages. If you are from the second one, we call it Venus, and if the fourth, we call that Mars, but of course your name for your world is the proper name for it."


    Today at 11:30 AM

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    Lillibeth jumped out of her skin. "Did...anyone else hear that?"


    Today at 11:31 AM

  • Crow Crow :
    "There's nothing to train us, so I doubt it," Ranko says, then looks to Beau, "go ahead, beats being here. Anything to get out of being in some kind of alien conversation."


    Today at 11:31 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    Beau looked at the sign. " Yeah, I did. Let's see what happens."


    Today at 11:32 AM

  • Loveless Loveless :
    "Wait.", Miranda had blinked as a weird realization came to her, "So you're not a 'trainer'???" Because they were supposedly existent at some point, right? So if this creature wasn't from the same world- Her train of thought had been interrupted by the loud weird voice again, prompting the Skitty to flinch once more, "I'd have preferred not to...", oh, how was she supposed to find her way back home from here?!


    Today at 11:35 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    Beau threw the knife and the sign fell down. A red and white ball landed next to it. " OH FUCK YOU." The room would go dark for a second and then a giant mettal sign would appear with the same writing. " TRY AND BREAK THAT WITH YOUR KNIVES. THERE IS NO CHARP!"


    Today at 11:36 AM

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    Lillibeth might have been comforted by the fact that someone else had heard the voice as well, if everyone else was not dressed so strangely, and she was not presently talking to a creature from another planet. It seemed more probable...that she had ended up in an asylum somehow and that--she startled again. The way the metal sign had just appeared certainly seemed to reinforce the idea that she was lost in delusion. Well, perhaps some artifice of machinery could have placed it there in the brief period of darkness, but silently?

    Annnnd then the... maybe not actually trainers?? Had actually dropped that sign with the knives! As expected, the voice was mad and Miranda trembled in fear of what it might have coming to them and- OH NO, THOSE COLORS, THIS WAS VERY VERY BAD. Everything else suddenly had no more importance as the Skitty's first instinct had been to leap on Lillibeth and attach herself to the bidepal furless female as a cat would to a tree, which unfortunately, meant a bit of a claw game... "AHHHH RUN! IT IS GOING TO IMPRISON US ALL!!!!", she shouted in a panic followed by distressed meows, eyes wide with terror, fur up and tail swishing like crazy.

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    "OW-OW!" Lillibeth said, dropping her knife and trying to gently take hold of the cat-creature so she could hold it properly instead of being clawed. "It's OK! It's OK! I'm not a 'trainer!' But you're right, we should try to get out of here!"

  • Crow Crow :
    "Oh, gladly!" Ranko laughs. She looks to the ball, then the Skitty, saying, "what if it's already got a prisoner?" Following that, she would open the sphere.


    Today at 11:51 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    " DON'T OPEN... FUCK." Out of the sphere, poked a green monster. Skitty would recgonize it as a female turtwig. " Huh- where am I?"

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    Lillibeth blinked in shock at the new creature. A hybrid...of turtle and plant? That talked?!


    Today at 11:57 AM

  • Loveless Loveless :
    Miranda realized what she had been doing and unsheathed her claws, allowing herself to be picked up and not minding the other's embrace that much. If anything, this was much much safer than the horrible, horrible object left on the ground. She meowed a little 'oh, sorry' back at the female, still trembling head to toe beans. At first, she had been alerted over the other female thing touching the wicked pokéball but the reasoning was sound and then a grass type she could safely recall as a Turtwig from her books had come out of it! Unfortunately, making the question no one had an answer for. "Well, we still don't know... But hey! You're free now! ... Except we're still trapped in here so maybe not all that free."


    Today at 11:58 AM

  • Crow Crow :
    "Huh, I was right. And this one's a turtle," Ranko crosses her arms. "Well, we don't know, but I did have the idea that you could do us a little solid in exchange for us freeing you - by helping us kick that thing's ass!" She pointed to the metal sign. "After that, we'll all be free! For real!"

    " When I wake up, I swear, I'm never drinking again," Beau muttered.


    Today at 12:02 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    " WELL, UHHHH... THERE IS STILL NO CHARP. SO DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT ATTACKING MY NEW SIGN." The sign was a little rusty and if it got hit by water or leaves, it might break. There was a water gun on the floor from seemingly nowhere.


    Today at 12:03 PM


  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    "My name is Lillibeth," she said to the cat-creature...who, she now realized, was familiar with the new creature, or at least not surprised by an entity that crossed taxonomic categories, and seemed to have known what the red and white ball was. And how could the creature have fit in that ball?! "So...everyone but me here is familiar with Pokemon World?"


    Today at 12:03 PM

  • Loveless Loveless :
    "I'm Miranda!", the Skitty had finally perked up due to having something familiar to her around. Well, familiar and not evil, "It's nice to meet you both..." That question about the Pokémon World was still rather confusing though. How even-


    Today at 12:06 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    Beau looked at over them. " Anyone notice that whatever the voice tells us is the opposite of what we should do?"


    Today at 12:09 PM

  • Loveless Loveless :
    "Like, reverse psychology?", Miranda had mewled in a curious tone, "I think Dana used on me a couple of times..."

    "We don't know that," Lillibeth said. "This all...looks like some kind of experiment. I...I used to be an assistant to Professor Dalrymple in Boston. He was a scientist of some repute," she said, a tinge of sadness in her voice. "Now, he was an inventor in the field of mechanics, but some of his colleagues in University performed experiments with rats in mazes. The voice obviously wants us to do the opposite of what it says, or at least see if we will, or it would not provide us with the tools to do so."

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    "Pardon me, voice," she said, looking toward her best guess at where its sound came from. "What is a 'Charp' supposed to be? Is it another one of these beings from Pokemon World?"

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    " That is an interesting point, but then why does it get angry every time we do the opposite of what he says?"

    "It could be testing us somehow. Trying to see how we will react to its expressed anger," Lillibeth said.

  • Loveless Loveless :
    "...Do you think it will let us go home if we ace the test?", the Skitty asked Lilli with a hopeful look on her furry light-yellow face. She just really wanted to go back and see her school friends and family again.

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    "I don't know," Lillibeth said. "I...would rather not go back to where it had found me," the 14 year-old said. "If I went to your world, would the people there all mistake me for a 'trainer?'"

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    " Honestly, I don't want to go home either. I just had a bad break up with my ex boyfriend and I would rather be anywhere but there. So, in a weird way, I am happy here.... though, I guess I wish there were more than just us five... and the voice."

    " Your boyfriend broke up with you? .....I wish I knew where my love was."

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    Lillibeth blinked in surprise at the young man talking about breaking up with a boyfriend--though really, the notion of a boy courting another boy was far from the strangest thing here!


    44 minutes ago

  • Loveless Loveless :
    That was... a surprisingly sad response, Miranda wasn't sure of how to take it, "Eh, why is it? Don't you have friends and family to meet with?", it wasn't a mean question, solely done out of childish confusion and curiosity, "And yeah I- I think so... They're supposed to be these mythical creatures of nightmares, imprisoning pokémon like me and Mari there and forcing them to battle each other. Some say they actually existed like looong looong ago. It's rather scary......" And then there was the voice, though Mi didn't quite get it, the Skitty definitely understood that they too were missing someone important to them, "How did you get separated Mr. mysterious voice?"

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    Lillibeth's eyes widened with horror at Miranda's description. A rather dreadful hypothesis was forming in her mind: that she had somehow, like Rip Van Winkle, been brought to a far-distant future; one in which humans had colonized the other planets much as they were colonizing the far parts of the world in her own time, and, if Miranda's story was true, enslaved the inhabitants there and forced them into gladiatorial combat! "I am very sorry if humans ever did such horrible things to your people!" she said, a tear breaking loose to run down her cheek. "I would have hoped we would be better than that by the time we developed the means to travel to the other planets. I was being sent to marry a man I have never met, a blacksmith in the Dakota Territory. Now I wish to go back even less, if what you have said is the future of humanity."

    Beau mused for a second. " I wish it was that simple, but well, when I was a teen, I came out to my parents and disowned me. Threw me out of the house when I was sixteen. As for friends, I don't have many, just some co-workers who were friendly. Huh- you know when you phrase i like that, it does sound terrible. I learned to live with this unruly path of me. If I may ask, what year is it for you?"

    " I lost him at some point before you arrive. He was swallowed.... FUCK, It's back." Approaching the foursome, there was a creeping black hole.


    24 minutes ago

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    "'Came out?'" Lillibeth said. "It was 1871...but I cannot even imagine what year it must be now!" Then the black thing appeared. "That's not someone else from Pokemon World is it?" she aid to Miranda. "If it's a threat, could the capture-ball be used to trap it?"

    " Told my parents I was more attracted to men than women.... that doesn't look like any pokemon I know."

  • Loveless Loveless :
    Miranda was once again rather taken aback by the female's responses, not quit understanding most of it. One thing seemed clear though, the fact it was extremely genuine... And suddenly the Skitty didn't feel so afraid, "It's okay...", she had placed a paw on the other's face, the nice and soft pink fur rustling in an attempt to be reassuring, "You're not so bad Lilly! ...Can I call you Lilly?" Unfortunately the chill and happy times were about to be interrupted when a dark hole that had apparently swallowed someone before was coming for them! Miranda's panicked gaze washed through the room, looking for a Gardevoir that could be responsible for the move, and yet, it was nowhere to be found... "It could!", the normal time had corrected, "But I don't see one anywhere!", and as for the pokéball, "M-maybe? I think it can only trap pokémon but- I-it's worth a try!!" Otherwise, they might be about to diiiiie!!

    Lillibeth quickly threw the ball at the "plot hole"...

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    It was too late, the ball would be thrown and swallowed after the hole grab the whole room... Was this the end? ......... This couldn't be the end..... As the world faded to black, the five would see a new world..... but that's a tale for another non-CHARP.
