Re: Char's Crystal Clear Nuzlocke Escapade
Okay, well that was freaky… Looks like I’m still alive and kicking! But where am I? And why does everything look so… blocky. Heck, even that computer over there is a honking cube. Wow, and that television! It looks like a pregnant flat screen. What the heck is that thing next to it? A radio? That thing’s bigger than my face.
What is this, the 90s? Okay, I got to get a grip. I need to find out what’s going on…
<It’s really quite simple, really. >
Wait, who’s that?
And you are?
<The biggest troll in the Pokémon Universe, of course.>
A competitive battling haxor?
<No, you buffoon! I mean the literal Pokémon Universe. >
Tch-haha, you’re funny. Seriously, who are you?
Right, and I’m a fedora-wearing Charmander.
<You could be, but would be in a different game entirely.>
Okay, you’re not making any sense.
<Fine, let me put it as simply as I can. You’re in a video game—Pokémon Crystal, to be precise—and you’re in a Nuzlocke challenge.>
…That still doesn’t make any sense.
<You want proof? Check your pocket. >
I don’t see how this is going to prove—this has got to be fake. A trainer card? That doesn’t even look like me.
<And now you should check your reflection…>
There’s no mirror in here! Wait, the television… WHAT THE???
<And there you have it. >
BLUE HAIR?! What the heck happened to my hair? And… and… Why do I look 10 years old?
<Now that that’s out of the way, we can get this story started. Char, a young woman with a dream of becoming a Pokémon Trainer, awakes in her bedroom one late evening, unable to contain her excitement. >
What the heck do you think you’re doing?
<Narrating, of course. What else would I be doing?>
I don’t know, trolling some fanatical Pokémon collector or something?
<Who says I can’t do both at the same time? ;D >
…You know, I imagined Suicune being less . . . annoying.
<And I imagined you being more… sophisticated.>
Excuse me? Why don’t you come out and say that to my face!
<All in due time, poppet, I assure you. We will meet in person some day, but that part of the story has not yet begun.>
I can’t wait.
<That sort of dry humor might get you into trouble someday, you know. You really should try to be more enthusiastic. Besides, unless you play the game, I’m afraid you’ll be trapped here for all eternity.>
…You’re saying I can’t get out of here unless I…
<Exactly. So do try to have fun with this. It’ll be more enjoyable on my part.>
And what part do you play, again?
<Didn’t I say earlier? I’m the narrator.>
<I know, I know! It’s quite an honor to have your story told by the majestic, powerful, beautiful Legendary Beast Suicune! I would be excited, were I in your shoes. So what do you say? Shall we begin this tale of tales?>
…Fine. Let’s get this over with.
<That’s the spirit, poppet.>
-Yeah, I haven't gotten my starter yet, lol. Sorry, but I really like writing stories xD Half of this Nuzlocke is, afterall, revisiting the treasures of Crystal. Next update, see what starter Char does end up picking! Any guesses?-
