Okay, the rating is just to be safe, because I can't remember if I cussed or not, and I'm way too lazy to go back and look.
This is something I'll probably do in my spare time, and it follows the Manga in a sense. Many events from the Ruby/Sapphire manga will be in there, and the personalities will be much the same as well. I will not add weird characters I don't know anything about, (wally's cousin and her boyfriend) but I will add other minor character's, like Professor Cozmo, and Captain Stern.
If I continue this fic, or get enough reviews, then I will put up a sign-up sheet. I'd love to add your original characters, it'd be extremely fun to read about your own character huh? Thanks to Many Many people for this idea on FF.net
Anyway, this isn't well edited, so please please please point out any mistakes you see. If I need more description, well. I know I do. But some things I won't describe for a reason, but that doesn't usually include setting. And by the way, I hate describing the layout of houses, so you'll just have to use your imagination unless I'm bored out of my mind.
Character Criteria at the moment!!
Need--Doesn't matter which gender
Pokemon: (And a breif desc. on their personalities, and nicknames are optional)
Appearance: (Pictures and Descriptions are all okay, but if written out, I'd like a nice one, that I don't have to elaborate too much.)
Other: (anything else I missed?)
WOW Sorry for rambling on so much, but gotta delay it you know? XD Here ya'll are.

On a bright early morning, the sun shining brilliantly to a brand new day, a boy is walking toward the start of his adventures, and a girl is walking toward the start of her adventures.
What more is there to this story?
“EYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!” Came a yell of surprise, as someone quickly stumbled backward in the trees surrounding Littleroot. A boy with blood red eyes had fallen on the ground, having tripped over his own feet in surprise “Monster!!!”
He knew he made a mistake the minute he’d opened his mouth. First off, the yell wasn’t really a yell…more like…a girlish scream. Secondly, falling onto the ground was a big mistake, which would be revealed to him later. And third…the ‘monster’ was in fact an extremely offended girl, no older no younger then himself by the looks of it as well.
“WHAT did you call me?!” She asked in an offended voice.
Actually, the boy personally really couldn’t blame himself for calling her a monster. She was A. covered in dirt and mud, B. looked like she didn’t even know what a bath was C. Didn’t look like she’d TAKEN a bath in the past few months D. Was dressed in…were those leaves??? And finally, E. Had THE most disgusting and deformed expression on her face. In other words, a female semi-human monster.
“Oh, sorry, I-I must have mistook you as…as…” The boy stuttered, trailing off and remembering the rustling of leaves that had startled him so quickly. He could’ve sworn it was going to be some kind of mutated pokemon who had it in for him.
“AS A MONSTER?!” She screeched “DO I LOOK LIKE A MONSTER?!”
He thought instantly, ‘YEAH, do I look like an idiot?!’ But thought better of saying it aloud “N-no, it was just spur of the moment!” He said sweatdropping “Why are you-“
“Dressed like this? So I blend with my enviroment.” She snapped, the cuts and bruises on her face didn’t seem to faze her at all. Her hair was combed into two ‘piggytail’ like clumps on either side of her head, unbound by a hair tie and the back, as little as there was, was pulled up into a short ponytail. It was obviously styled to be that way.
“That’s why you’re dressed like that?! Can’t you wear something else?!” He asked standing up and brushing himself off daintily.
“Pokemon won’t approach me if I wear synthetic materials!” She said, highly offended by his opinion on her appearance. Then again, it might’ve been like that just because it was just like that. She didn’t seem to think highly of looking good.
Hey, if she was offended already, he might as well continue to voice his opinions.
“And come to think of it, you STINK too! Doesn’t hygiene mean ANYTHING to you?!” He asked pinching his nose and waving his other hand back and forth before his nose.
“What about YOU?!” She asked pointing an accusing finger at him, majorly ticked off “Fancy dyeing YOUR hair white!!!”
“It’s a hat!” He shot back. She was referring to the hat crammed upon his head, covering all his hair, and most of his forehead.

“Ah!” Professor Birch said joyfully as I walked through the door after my unpleasant run-in with that girl “Ruby, it’s so nice to see you!”
“Thanks Professor Birch, it’s nice to see you too.” I said politely.
“Here to get your first pokemon no doubt?” Professor Birch said pulling three brand new pokeballs from a beat up brown side bag “Well, there’s Treecko,” He released a strange looking green…lizard thing with huge yellow eyes “Torchic,” He then released a chick looking pokemon, orange with yellow tufts around itself, and no apparent…wings? “and last but not least, Mudkip. These are just starters.” He said, finally letting out a blue pokemon, that looked like a fish turned into a land pokemon…it was a hard decision to make, your first pokemon.
“Stop right there!” A familiar voice snapped as I cringed “Torchic is mine, and I’m not letting her fall into the hands of the likes of YOU!”
“Sapphire mind your manners!” Professor Birch said reproachfully.
“What manners?” I mumbled to myself “I was going to take Mudkip so don’t get your panties in a knot. If you even wear them.” I said rolling my eyes as Professor Birch sweatdropped, handing me Mudkip’s pokeball.
“WHAT?!” She screeched “I wear underwear thank you very much, AND, they’re NOT in a knot, AND, I have very good manners when I want to show them thanks!” She said snatching up torchic’s pokeball.
“Please don’t tell me you’re going on your journey dressed like that.” A feminine voice said from behind me and the monster “Sapphire, you know better then that.”
Sapphire was her name. I must’ve missed it when Professor Birch said her name, because I’m sure he did say it…oh, she’s saying something.
“I look fine mom!” She said pouting childishly.
“You won’t wear that tonight you won’t!” Her mother said, seemingly just as stubborn as her daughter. Sapphire had obviously received her deep navy blue eyes from her mother, her tawny yet rich brown hair from her father.
“Tonight?” Sapphire asked in surprise.
“Well yes, Ruby here is staying for dinner.” Mrs. Birch said folding her arms.
“What?!” Both me, Professor Birch, and Sapphire all yelled at once.
“Laramie just phoned me, and said she wants Ruby to experience a real family for just one night. You know Norman’s never there to eat dinner with them. Let alone he’s never there to BE at home.” Mrs. Birch said wiping her hands off on her light blue apron “No excuses you three.”
“Where’s he staying then?” Professor Birch asked.
“Where else?” Mrs. Birch said “Sapphire’s room.”
“WHAT?!” Sapphire shrieked “I’m gonna get AIDs or something, the next time I sleep in my bed if HE sleeps in it!” She pointed another accusing finger at me.
“What?!” I retorted “Just what do you think I do in my free time?!”
“Alright you two!” Mrs. Birch said slamming a yard stick down on Professor Birch’s desk, making papers jump up and settle down in different spots. Professor Birch was wimpering rather pathetically as his freshly cleaned desk was instantly demolished “Quiet down. Sapphire I want you to be NICE to Ruby tonight, or else I’m taking away your privilege to go on a journey! Ruby, I want YOU to be nice to Sapphire, or else I’m going to phone your mother AND your father, YES, young man your FATHER, and I’m going to make sure YOUR privilege is taken away is that clear?”
“Yes ma’am…” Both me and Sapphire muttered as she glared at me, and I glared at her equally.

“I can’t believe I have to spend an entire NIGHT with you…” Sapphire grumbled as she rummaged through her closet, tossing out clothes, which mainly comprised of…dresses?
“Woah, you actually wear dresses?” Ruby asked, examining a rather frilly one she just thrown out.
“Shut up!” Sapphire yelled snatching the dress away from him “They’re really old, because I don’t wear synthetic materials much!”
“How about this one?” Ruby asked picking up on that had landed on the ground dejectedly “It looks good.”
Sapphire glanced up at the dress in Ruby’s hand and flushed, “GIVE ME THAT!”
“What?!” Ruby asked defensively.
“I’m never wearing that dress again! First off, it’s too frilly, Secondly, it’s incredibly small, and thirdly, it brings back memories that suck worse then you!” She snapped, thrusting the dress back into the back of her closet. As she continued to rummage for something to wear.
“I was kidding!” Ruby said as he was pelted by randomly thrown dresses.
“AHA!” Sapphire shouted triumphantly “This’ll work fine.”
Ruby sweatdropped “It looks like a potato sack.”
“Who asked you?!” Sapphire snapped “If you’re so smart find something that’s not too girlish and something that looks okay!”
“Yes ma’am.” Ruby said sarcastically as he began to sift through the pile of dusty dresses. Almost all of them were much too small for her, and rather…girlish “You know, I don’t think I can match your demands. How about we go shopping for a new outfit for you?”
“Shopping?!” Sapphire asked, sitting cross legged on her bed, “What kind of Man-woman are you?!”
Ruby sweatdropped and said “Well let’s go then.”
“Wait!” Sapphire said “I don’t have any money to go shopping!”
“I do.” Ruby said as though it was plain to see.
“I’m not using your money! And I’m not dressed to go into a store!” Sapphire said flushing at the prospect of being bought clothes from a total stranger who was totally offending.
“Too late for that.” Ruby said shrugging. He faltered and then stopped entirely. Sapphire was prompt to bump into him at his quick and sudden stop, and snapped “Now what?!”
“Uh, you might want to take a shower first.” Ruby said pointing at the bathroom.
“What?!” Sapphire said “Do you know how-“
“Just go!” Ruby said pushing her into the bathroom and closing the door.
“But I don’t have any clothes to put on afterward!!” She yelled pounding on the door, of which Ruby was keeping shut.
“I’ll GET you some from your mom or something!” Ruby said, as the pounding died away. Grumbling was still heard as the water began to run, and he smirked. It was time to domesticate this wild cat.
“She can borrow one of my old T-shirts. I’m sure there’s a pair of shorts somewhere in her room as well.” Professor Birch said, having come to examine the commotion.
“Okay, I’ll go find the shorts.” Ruby said heading toward her room.
“I think you should go find a t-shirt instead. I’m not sure she’ll be too excited about the prospect of you being alone in her room.” Professor Birch said walking past Ruby “My room’s further down the hall. Blue closet.”
“…Oh…” He muttered “Okay then…”
Sure enough, a few minutes later, Sapphire was yelling for the Ruby to ‘get on with it’.
“Coming!” Professor Birch said coming quickly with her clothes.
“Boy am I glad it’s you and not Ruby.” Sapphire muttered as she took the clothes from her father “This is the most horrible experience of my life.”
Professor Birch sweatdropped “I think it’ll be an interesting experience.”
“Right, tell that to me after I get some new clothes.” Sapphire said rolling her eyes and slamming the door shut.
