Okay, so this has been up for a while now on Fanfiction.net so if you want you can check it out here: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/1178420...ic-electricity, but I've decided to post it here as well. Here is the first (and in my opinion best) chapter.
Original Author's Note: Hi everyone, this fanfic was originally going to be a one-shot in a series of Pokemon tf one-shots similar to Ryu the Weredragon’s Pokemon Transformation Chronicles but it eventually got too long and I decided to make it its own fanfiction. This is my longest chapter in any fanfiction (which isn’t saying much) but I’m really enjoying writing this and I hope you enjoy reading it.
His mother came in, after hearing all the noise, and sighed after seeing them, “Not again.”
James was a normal kid. He enjoyed going to school because his teachers made the work fun. This particular day he had Science for last period. He was enjoying the subject that his class had been learning about, which was energy and different forms of electricity.
On this day, his science teacher, Mr Cole, was teaching. James sighed and looked over to the girl sitting next to him with the long brown hair, Jessica. He seemed to get put next to her in everything. He was only at this school because he got a scholarship, and so already knew most of it. He brushed up his blonde hair and quickly lost focus in what Mr Cole was saying.
After some worksheets and demonstrations about protons, neutrons, electrons and other electrical forces the class went silence. James snapped out of his stupor and noticed the silence. The class was silent because Mr Cole what had pulled off a trolley. It was a Van de Graaf generator, which was a big metal ball that generated static electricity. If a person was touching it, it could cause their hair to stand up.
Mr Cole asked for a volunteer to touch it.
Both James and Jessica eagerly put their hands up, except Jessica called out something, as well. “I volunteer as tribute,” she called out.
Mr Cole ignored her and chose a different girl. She placed her hand on the device as Mr Cole switched it on.
‘Well, that was anti-climatic,’ thought James.
When Mr Cole turned it on, not much happened. A few strands of hair lazily sticked up, but not to the extent that was expected.
“I think that your hair’s too thick,” Mr Cole said. He chose another girl, who had thinner hair. When he turned it on, the same thing happened, except that a few more strands stuck up. This wasn’t much, but it was still enough for Mr Cole to move her hair around by waving his hand above it. The lesson continued on normally.
After class had finished, both Jessica and James had the same thought: Use the Van de Graff generator. They were sneaking into the science building, and didn’t notice each other until they collided.
“Ow,” they yelled in unison, then quickly fell quiet, as they didn’t want to be caught.
“What are you doing here?” James whispered.
“The same thing as you,” Jessica replied, having guessed what he was doing.
“Just don’t get caught and we’ll do it together,” he told her.
They crept along the corridor, stopping to look into empty classrooms along the way.
“There it is,” Jessica whispered to James as they came to a classroom. In the classroom they found Mr Cole and the device.
“How are we going to get in without him noticing?” James asked.
“Just leave it to me,” Jessica whispered with a smirk. She crept into the next classroom and banged on one of the tables. Mr Cole heard and went out of his classroom and went into the other one.
‘I hope Jessica doesn’t get caught,’ James thought. He crept into the now-empty classroom and looked around. Luckily for him the device was plugged into a power-point. He switched it on and touched it just as Jessica ran in.
“Wow,” Jessica said, in surprise. The hair on both their heads was standing up, “I didn’t think it was that strong.”
“Mr Cole must’ve turned the power up,” James replied.
They then heard footsteps outside the room. James let go of it and got an electrical shock. What was strange was that the shock didn’t hurt him. In fact, it felt nice, natural somehow.
“Quick,” Jessica hissed, “Out the window.”
They ran to the window and just managed to jump out when Mr Cole walked in. They heard him talking to himself.
“Strange, I must’ve left it on.” James and Jessica quickly crept away and went home.
James woke up to the buzzing of his alarm clock. He didn’t want to get up for school and started to get angry. Suddenly the alarm clock stopped buzzing. He looked at it and saw that it had been short-circuited by something. He looked at it for a few seconds and wondered how it had short-circuited before going downstairs to get ready for school.
At school he saw Jessica with her long yellow hair. He then looked again to make sure that he was seeing correctly. Yellow hair? Last time he checked Jessica had brown hair.
“What happened to your hair,” he asked her.
“I don’t know,” she whispered back, “I woke up this morning and it was like this. My parents think that I dyed it. I got in huge trouble.”
“I don’t know what you’re talking about, but can you please save it for recess,” their English teacher told them. They quickly got back to work.
After school they both went home. James went up to his bedroom and did his homework before turning on his Wii U and playing Splatoon. After a while he heard the doorbell ringing.
His mum got it and called up to him, “James, there’s a friend here to see you.”
“OK mum I’m coming,” he called back down. He brushed some of his hair off his face. Since when had his fringe gotten that big. It nearly covered his whole face. He went down and was surprised to see Jessica waiting for him.
James could hardly tell it was her. Her now-yellow hair was nearly covering her face and she was wearing a hat.
“What happened to your hair, and how did you know where I lived?” James asked in surprise.
“I don’t know what happened to my hair and I looked it up in the phone book,” she replied.
“So why did you come here?” he asked. “Because of these,” she replied, taking off the hat and revealing something very wrong.
Protruding from her head were two yellow ears, that looked similar to a dogs.
“What the,” James said, too shocked to think clearly. “How?” he eventually said.
“I don’t know,” Jessica said, “But why don’t we go up to your room and have some privacy.”
“Good idea,” James replied.
They went up to his room when James started to get really itchy. Itchy everywhere. When they got to his room, he couldn’t help it any more. He started itching. Wherever he itched, yellow hair sprouted up. “What are you doing?” Jessica asked in shock, “Stop itching, it’s just making it worse.”
“I can’t stop,” James said, “It’s just too itchy.”
Suddenly Jessica started to itch too. No, she told herself, I can’t itch. Eventually she couldn’t take it anymore and gave in. Yellow hair sprouted up everywhere on both of them, except their necks. On their necks cream hair started to sprout up and spike out into a pattern.
Then they both suddenly found that they could see a lot better. The hair on their faces had stuck to and become part of their faces. Their eyes changed colour to blue, and then they started to howl in pain.
Their faces stretched out into muzzles and James realized something. It's not hair, he told himself, it’s fur! They fell forward onto all fours, and their hands changed into paws. Some ears like Jessica’s grew on James, and a tail grew out from their spine.
The changes stopped.
“What jolt happened to eon?” James asked.
“I te on but e think eon e jolt,” Jessica replied.
“What’s eon jolt eon teon on?” James asked.
“Eon jolt eon jolt te on teon jol,” Jessica replied. They could still understand each other perfectly and didn’t realize that they had changed dialect.
James’ mother came in, after hearing all the noise, and sighed after seeing them, “Not again.”
