Medea is back! Yes Medea has finally finished her shipping fic. It has been a whole year since I last posted a fic and now that I'm finished with working on this one (which took me over ten months to complete) I'm finally posting.
Yeah, this story is of course multi-chaptered and there are so many ships in this story. The following include: Pokeshipping, Gracefulshipping, Handymanshipping, Femmeshipping, Artstudentshipping, and many, many more.
Disclaimer: Romance 101 is the story of the Pokemon characters in high school. There will be NO ACTUAL POKEMON OR MENTIONING OF POKEMON IN THIS FIC. The ages of these characters are fake. Don't think that's how old they really are! With all that said and done, let the story begin!

Narrator: High school, itís one of the most memorable, cherished four years of any personís life. This is not about my high school experience. God no! Okay, maybe this story is somewhat like my high school experience. For the most part, this is the story of one particular school known as Pallet High. Here at this high school, we have some of the most interesting people. People in the drama departmentÖ
Tucker: (Singing) I feel pretty, oh so pretty. I feel pretty, and witty, and gay!
Narrator: Student council is also strong here.
Winona: If you vote for me for junior class president, I promise you that we will make our voices heard here. (Cheering)
Narrator: Well we begin our story on the first day of school. Weíve all been through that before, freshmen in a new high school with a bunch of upperclassmen, it can be quite scary.
It was an early Monday morning and Misty was fast asleep in her bed. All of a sudden, Daisy came into her room to wake her up for school.
Misty: Itís Monday morning already? YAHOO! ITíS FINALLY HERE!
Daisy: What are you talking about?
Misty: Itís the first day of school! Iíve been waiting for this day to come for so long. Iím finally in high school!
Daisy: Whoa! Take a chill pill Misty. High school is not all that.
Misty: Are you kidding? High school is supposed to be the best four years of our lives. I want to absorb all that the school has to offer! (Lily and Violet walk in)
Lily: Oh please! Thereís nothing great to absorb from public school.
Violet: Yeah, especially our school!
Daisy: Alright Misty, itís time that I lay a few ground rules for you since weíre going to be in the same school. Number one, if you see me with any of my friends, donít come anywhere near.
Lily: That goes double for me!
Violet: And the same goes with boyfriends and dates!
Daisy: Second, stay away from the food in the cafeteria. Itís the same kind of food they serve in prison.
Violet: Like gross!
Daisy: And third and most important, stay away from Professor Elm!
Misty: Professor? This isnít some hot teacher that you want dibs on because thatís so wrong, so sick, and you can get in big trouble!
Daisy: O.M.G. That is so disgusting! Iím giving you the warning about Professor Elm because he likes young girls. Heís like the white version of R. Kelly! And whatís even worse is that pervert is still at the school and you have him as your English teacher. I took his class freshmen year and Iím pretty sure he was trying to hit on me.
Violet: Wait a second Daisy; I thought Professor Elm hits on the pretty girls!
Misty: And what the hell is that supposed to mean?
Lily: Letís just say you donít have to worry about getting hit on!
Misty: Alright, thatís enough making me feel bad before school starts. Now please get out of my room so I can get ready!
About half an hour passed by and the four sisters were driving to Pallet High School. Approaching the buildings, Mistyís eyes lit up. She couldnít believe that she was finally in high school.
Misty: Come on you guys! This should be fun!
Lily: (Sighs) I donít know how long I can handle her upbeat attitude.
Daisy: Donít worry; Iíve got a plan to get rid of her so that none of the boys or our friends sees us with her.
Misty: There it is! Pallet High School! I canít wait! (Brakes screech)
Daisy: Okay Misty, this is where you get off!
Misty: Wait a minute! I thought you were taking me to school! You heard our parents and they told you three to watch after me and make sure nothing happens.
Daisy: Well if youíre going to be a spaz like that, I didnít want you to make a scene while we were around.
Lily: Donít worry! The building is just one block away from this distance!
Daisy: Remember, be in your first class by 7:45 or the teacher wonít let you in. See you later! (They drive off)
Misty: I canít believe they just ditched me on the side of the road. What am I saying, these are the sisters who kept me hiding in a broom closet for four hours during a game of hide and seek! Damn, I wish I was wearing a watch! Iím going to be late for my first class! This sucks! I thought this was going to be a great first day! What else could go wrong? (She bumps into a boy)
Brock: Oh man!
Misty: Iím so sorry for bumping into you like that. I guess I wasnít looking where I was going. Iím sorry!
Brock: Oh thatís quite alright, no damage here!
Misty: Say, you wouldnít happen to have the time would you? I forgot to wear my watch so I have no idea if Iím late for class!
Brock: Relax! Itís only five minutes after seven. Pallet High doesnít start until 7:45 if I remember correctly.
Misty: You mean youíre a student there too?
Misty: Mind if I stay by you for a while. I need an upperclassman to show me the ropes.
Brock: Upperclassman? Me? Oh youíve got me all wrong! Iím just a freshman!
Misty: So am I! By the way, my name is Misty Waterflower.
Brock: Itís nice to meet you Misty. My name is Brock. You can hang with me if you want. But first, weíve got to take my younger siblings to Elementary school across the way.
Misty: Great! (Thirty minutes later at school)
Brock: I guess we have to go in the gym for some sort of special assembly.
Misty: Oh yeah! My older sisters told me about this. Itís some sort of welcoming assembly for freshmen. (Brock starts drooling) Whatís wrong with you?
Brock: Okay, I have a weakness. I just canít say no to a pretty girl! I guess you can call me an entrepreneur of new beauties.
Misty: No! Because where Iím from we call it being a pervert!
Brock: Oh pervert is such a harsh word to useÖWhoa! All of the girls I went to middle school with now have racks! Iíve never seen this side before! I must be in Heaven! (On the gym floor)
Oak: Welcome all new freshmen! Let me be the first to welcome you all to Pallet High School, your home for the next four years. I am your principal Samuel Oak. Remember students, thereís no need to fear me. I want to be your friend as well as an advisor when it comes to your education. I guess you can say that I want to put the pal back in principal! (Cricket chirps) Now you see? Thatís exactly why Iím a school administrator and not a stand up comedian! Now I want to introduce two other people who want to make your stay here as nice as possible. To my right, is my right-handed partner Miss Agatha.
Miss Agatha: Hello students, Iím Miss Agatha the vice-principal of the school.
Oak: And to my left, Scott, your guidance councilor!
Scott: Iím happy to assist with any problem you may have. Donít be afraid to ask any questions.
Oak: Now I know being in a new school can be scary and being in a bigger environment than the one you were used to isnít helpful. But donít worry! The upperclassmen at this school are very helpful and donít mind it when you ask any question. (After the assembly in the hallways)
Brock: Would you go out with me? (Brock is slammed against a locker)
Misty: Brock, I think Principal Oak said that if you needed to ask about the school, not asking girls out!
Brock: Well itís part of my curriculum at this school. (A girl walks up)
Winona: Donít feel bad! Iíve seen other guys get twice the pounding from her.
Winona: I take it that you guys are freshmen!
Misty: Yeah, itís our first day here! My name is Misty Waterflower.
Winona: Waterflower? Then I take it youíre related to Daisy, Violet, and Lily?
Misty: Yeah, theyíre my older sisters. You know them?
Winona: Yeah, I have some classes with them and I usually talk to Daisy once and a while. We used to be good friends, but things happen and people change. Oh yeah, my name is Winona!
Brock: My name is Brock! Brock Harrison! Winona is such a name of beauty! How about after school, we get a little more well-acquainted? (Misty pulls on Brockís ear)
Misty: Hello! Earth to Brock! Instead of Brock Harrison, it should be Brock Harassment!
Winona: Well, somebodyís going to be a heartbreaker! (The bell rings) Shoot, time for class! If you guys need anything, just find me and Iíll help you out. (She leaves)
Misty: So what do you have first?
Brock: My first class is gym!
Misty: I have English! (Looks around) What luck! Thereís the classroom!
Brock: Cool, Iíll see you later!
Misty: See you!
In the English class, as Professor Elm called out the attendance, he came across Mistyís name and asked her if she was related to Daisy Waterflower. When Misty said that she was her sister, Professor Elm smiled and told Misty he couldnít wait to see some of her work. With that, Misty got a bit nervous. In gym class, Brock was in an all-boyís class.
Brock: What a rip off! You would think that this would be a coed gym class, but itís nothing but a sausage festival! Where are all of the beauties?
Ash: (Laughing) Same old Brock!
Brock: Ash! Thank God!
Ash: Glad to see you in this class! I didnít even see you at the assembly. I thought that you were going to Pallet Academy.
Brock: Yeah right, my parents canít afford Pallet Academy, plus my nine other siblings.
Ash: Iím glad that youíre here instead of that rich, smart school. I thought I was going to have to take an entrance exam. Dodged a bullet!
Gary: Oh yes, why would you want to work out a muscle thatís obviously not there Ashy boy! By that I mean your brain!
Ash: I knew what you meant you jerk! Of all of the schools you could have gone to, why did you have to go here?
Gary: My grandfather is the principal remember? (Whistle blowing)
Lt. Surge: Good morning ladies and welcome to gym class. For the next year, I will be your teacher. Now, I donít want you little girlies thinking this is an easy A class. You are going to sweat! You are going to groan! You are going to cry for your mommies! Now get out on the field and letís see what you all are made of.
Ash: Gee, this guy looks crazy!
Gary: You getting nervous Ash?
Ash: Nervous? Me? Ha! Youíve been huffing too many bus fumes Gary. Iím not afraid of anything. Iíll take you on, anywhere and anytime.
Brock: Some things will never change. (After first period outside a classroom)
Misty: Iím glad thatís over!
Sakura: You said it! That teacher is giving me the ultimate creeps. I swear I could have seen him checking out my legs.
Misty: You too? Man, I thought it was just me with that uneasy feeling!
Sakura: My name is Sakura!
Misty: Itís nice to meet you, my name is Misty. (A girl walks up)
Marisa: I heard you guys talking about that creep Professor Elm too! Thereís something about that man that I just donít trust.
Misty: Man, my sisters were right, he is a pervert!
Marisa: Well if he tries anything stupid, Iím reporting him to the authorities.
Sakura: Boy, you took the message that Principal Oak said after the introductions to heart.
Marisa: Well Principal Oak told me personally to go to him if something or someone doesnít seem right.
Misty: Are you his daughter or something?
Marisa: No! Iím just an office aide!
Sakura: How could you land a position like that when you are only a freshman?
Marisa: I know itís a little weird, but I was an office aid all through middle school and the school put in a good word for me at the high school. Plus, my parents know Principal Oak and are good friends with him, so I suppose thatís also how I got the job.
Sakura: Whoa, now thatís cool! Iím Sakura!
Misty: And my name is Misty.
Marisa: Itís nice to meet you girls. Iím Marisa!
After gym class, Lt. Surge asked to speak to Ash and Gary. He told them that he was quite pleased with their enthusiasm during class and asked them if they were interested in playing on the football team. With that said a spark was raised between Ash and Gary and then came a challenge. Once lunchtime came around, Misty, Sakura, and Marisa were together trying to find a lunch table. When Sakura saw some seats open, Misty noticed that her sisters were at that table and told the girls not to go through with it. Just then, Misty heard her name being called and saw Brock with a few extra seats open.
Misty: Thanks for saving us some seats!
Brock: Itís no problem. I see youíve made some new friends!
Misty: Oh yeah, this is Sakura and Marisa. Theyíre both in my English class. (Ash runs up to the table) Huh?
Ash: Brock man, there you are!
Brock: Great timing, you can meet everybody! Thatís Sakura, Marisa, and Misty.
Ash: Nice meeting you guys! Brock, youíll never guess what happened to me! Coach Surge asked me to try out for the football team.
Brock: Football? You donít even play the sport!
Ash: Yeah, but he doesnít know it! Besides, I have no choice but to tryout and to get on the team, to show up that smug son of aÖ
Brock: We have ladies at the table you know!
Ash: Sorry about that!
Misty: Oh, itís no problem at all! (Nervous laugh)
Sakura: Hey Misty, how come you didnít want us to sit over at that other table?
Misty: Those girls at the other table are my older sisters.
Brock: Older sisters? (Looks over) Holy crap! Such beautiful ladies! Pretty enough to be super models! (Misty grabs his ear)
Misty: Please, my sisters would shoot you down without you saying a word. (Ash giggles)
Ash: Nice one! Iíve been trying to control Brockís ego for years now.
Misty: Oh well, thank you! (Blushes)
Marisa: I can understand not wanting to be around your sisters.
Misty: You donít understand, they told me to stay away from them when theyíre with their friends or cute guys. They think that just because theyíre juniors and cheerleaders, they have the right to treat me like crap. They think that theyíre beyond having to help theyíre little sister through high school.
Marisa: Well if you want to put them in their place, just tryout for cheerleading. If I remember correctly, there are tryouts all week long.
Misty: I donít know! Cheerleading?
Sakura: Who knows Misty, it might be fun! If itíll make you feel better, I was thinking about trying out as well.
Misty: Really? I guess it canít hurt!
Sakura: Awesome! Marisa, do you want to tryout as well?
Marisa: Nah! Cheerleading isnít really my thing.
Ash: Hey good luck girls! (Misty blushes) As for me, Iím going to get some good old training inÖ
Gary: Even with the training, youíre still a loser Ashy boy!
Ash: Iíll show you whoís a loser! Last one on the football field is a rotten egg! (They both start running)
Misty: (Thinking) Heís cute! A little too competitive, but cute none the less!
It was the final period of the day and Misty was in her gym class with Marisa and a bunch of other girls. In class, the girls were playing a game of Volleyball. Luckily, Misty and Marisa were on the same team and were pretty good on top of which. Little did they know, Brock ditched his last class and was hiding behind the bleachers! During the game, something caught the corner of Marisaís eye and asked for a little timeout for a sip from the water fountain. As soon as she got back, she went to Misty and told her that they had a little peeper and just called Miss Agatha. In the middle of the class, Miss Agatha came in to quietly check on the girls. During Brockís peep show, he felt a hand on his shoulder. When he looked up, he saw Miss Agatha and was asked to come with her. Out in the open, all of the girls started to laugh at Brock and Misty put her hand over her head. After the final bell rang, Misty and Marisa met up with Sakura outside where they were holding tryouts for cheerleading.
Marisa: Well I want to wish you guys good luck.
Sakura: Thanks Marisa! The door is still open if you still want to tryout!
Marisa: Again, I must decline! Iím more of an art geek! (Brock runs up to them) Well look what the cat hacked up!
Brock: YOU RAT! I know it was you who ratted me out to Miss Agatha.
Marisa: Now why would I do something like that?
Brock: Because I know that youíre in cahoots with the front office. Thanks to you, I have detention for the next week.
Marisa: Thatíll teach you to mess with me you pervert!
Brock: What did I do to you?
Marisa: Let me put it to you this way Brock. Iím a good girl! I follow the rules and I play the game. You go through with that little peep show again, and I will make sure that youíre transferred to a different school you philandering pervert! Misty, Sakura, I will see you tomorrow. Knock them dead! (She leaves)
Brock: Bitch! (A few minutes later in the gym)
Sakura: You think weíll be able to learn all of these moves?
Misty: Iím sure that weíll be able to handle everything these girls can throw at us!
Daisy: Misty? What are you doing here? I thought we had an understanding this morning!
Misty: Well Sakura and I are trying out for cheerleading. We canít help it if you guys are on the squad, we just want to see if we can make it.
Sakura: Thatís right!
Miss Lillian: Now thatís the kind of enthusiasm I love to see. (Misty and Sakura jump) Forgive me for scaring you like that. Iím Miss Lillian, the head cheerleading coach. Itís always nice to have young blood on the squad. You girls ready to give 110%?
Both: Yes maíam!
Miss Lillian: Excellent! The next four days you girls will learn the moves and on Friday, thatís when you will have to perform for me and several other judges. So are you girls still up for the challenge?
Both: You bet!
Miss Lillian: Thatís the spirit!
All week long, Ash and Gary were doing football drills with Lt. Surge after school. Meanwhile, Misty and Sakura were learning the drills for cheerleading. Finally, Friday arrived and the girls were ready to face the judges. They were to do the routine that they have worked on all week and perform in front of the judges. On the football field, Lt. Surge had to make his final decisions on the freshmen team as well, so the heat was on for Ash and Gary. After Misty finished her tryout, she took a breather outside. As she worried about whether or not she was going to make it, she sees Ash and decides to talk to him.
Ash: Hey Misty!
Misty: How are you doing?
Ash: Iíll be alright as long as I get on the team. I worked so hard this week and hopefully the coach will take that into account. What about you?
Misty: Well, I just performed in front of judges and I think I did okay, but I probably didnít do as well as they wanted.
Ash: Hey, donít talk like that Misty. If you just stay positive, Iím sure youíll get on the squad. Thatís what Iím doing!
Misty: Well Iím sure youíll get on the football team. And when you do, maybe we can see each other at the games.
Ash: Thatís cool. (Sakura runs up)
Sakura: Misty, the results are posted!
Ash: Good luck you two! Iíve got to get going as well. (Ash leaves)
Sakura: If I didnít know any better, I could have sworn you were blushing when talking to Ash.
Misty: Who me? No! We were just talkingÖjust as friends!
Sakura: Then why is your face all red? I knew it! Hey donít worry about it! Itís customary to have a crush in high school. I wonít tell anybody.
Misty: (Sighs) I would greatly appreciate it! (Inside the gym)
Sakura: Look! There we are! We made it!
Misty: The freshmen squad?
Daisy: Yes the freshmen squad! If youíre a freshmen and make it on cheerleading, thatís the squad you are going to be on. (Misty sighs) Hey donít take it so hard. I was once on the freshmen squad at one point. But donít forget, this isnít going to be an easy ride, youíre going to work!
Misty: I wouldnít have it any other way!
At the same time, Lt. Surge put up the list of who was going to be on the freshmen football team. Ash was the first to see the list, but could not find his name anywhere on the list, but saw Garyís name. Before he left, Lt. Surge mentioned that it was a very close choice and said to Ash to try again next season. As Ash was walking from school, he sees Brock leaning against a wall.
Ash: Hey Brock.
Brock: So, did you make it on the team?
Brock: Thatís too bad. Maybe football wasnít really your thing. We have four years at this place to find something that you maybe interested in. Whether it be a sport, activity, or even a girlfriend in some cases.
Ash: That makes sense.
Brock: Besides Ash, I couldnít picture your skinny white ass on the football team. You would have been eaten alive!
Ash: True enough. I guess Iíll stick to my one true loveÖBasketball!
Brock: Iíve got the ball right here!
Ash: Hey maybe I should go out for the basketball team!
Brock: You know we only play this game for fun!
Ash: It was worth a try!
