    Default Mew's Christmas Carol (PG)

    Christmas is a celebration one normally spends
    With relatives and strangers, family and friends!
    But those that obsess over this aspect only
    Are always the ones that are the most lonely...

    This is a rhyming tale featuring everyone's favorite legendary, Mew. It's a bit different from most things I've seen on here, but I hope you enjoy reading it!

    ‘Twas a dark, cold night of ice and snow

    Winter had come, as the moon was aglow

    Bathing herself in its pale chilling light

    Floated Mew, a legendary of wisdom and might

    ”1.5424° to ecliptic…”

    She mumbled with a meaning most cryptic

    ”6.687° to orbital plane…”

    She whispered in a way most profane

    Creating mental notes to add to her growing supply

    Mew giggled and decided to look down from the sky

    Down there was a world she felt she knew rather well

    With few curiosities about it left in her to quell

    Suddenly realizing danger with her many senses

    She hastily attempted to raise her defenses

    A crowd of Pokémon seemed to have gathered underneath

    Dancing, laughing and singing through their teeth!

    Mew lowered her defenses, but rose in height

    “What an odd thing to be doing, on such a frosty night…”

    But even though she was so high above

    She couldn’t help but notice all their magnificent love

    Focusing her ears, she started hearing

    Of tidings and traditions most endearing!

    They were celebrating ‘Holidays’ or ‘Christmas’, signs bode

    Whichever one it was, she was unable to decode

    She wondered what ‘Christmas’ was, in curiosity

    They were spreading joy and delight, with such generosity!

    And even though she tried to this happy display shun

    She couldn’t deny that it all looked kind of… Fun.

    She wished to join them, to move a bit nearer

    Instead the voice of reason in her turned clearer

    “I am legendary and must remain hidden”, she remembered

    “Unless I want to get caught, or maybe even dismembered!”

    Sighing deeply, she turned around to leave

    She saw no use in hanging on to an impossible dream

    But suddenly, a plan in her mind took form

    “I know! I can try to use ‘Transform’!”

    Searching nearby for a lonely spot

    She knew from the start this would be a long shot

    Her transformation skills were far from complete

    And her regular form was pink, not all that discreet!

    Setting down among a group of trees

    She took shelter behind them from the cold breeze

    Then, using the extent of her abilities

    She began thinking about the many possibilities

    She thought of turning into a common Raticate

    But she didn’t want to come off as too overweight

    Most of her transformations were of water-types, like Horsea

    Although becoming a Magikarp would probably never be a good idea...

    In the end, she decided to go with Charmander

    The fairly rare, yet popular salamander

    But then she halted herself just before turning

    In this cold, her fire might stop burning!

    Met with failure, she felt her determination soften

    Transforming was not something she did very often

    Not wanting to waste any further time

    She simply transformed herself into a Mr. Mime

    Her new body was itchy, heavy and slow

    Only when compared with her regular form, though

    They might laugh at her, but she won’t hear it

    None of that will be enough to crush her spirit!

    Feeling ready, she finally left the trees

    Approaching the crowd while braving the chilling freeze

    Sliding herself in, she quickly blended in with the the crew

    There were now 33 regular Pokémon… And a Mew!

    Looking around, she found herself somewhat meek

    Celebrations everywhere, yet she dared not to speak!

    She had never been good at socialization

    Constant isolation can create such a retardation

    Observing the area, she saw much decoration

    Ornaments and lights, with trees as their foundation

    Most of them were covered in round colorful glass

    They reminded her quite a bit of Regigigas!

    A little further away, among all the cables

    Were several kinds of food, decked across many tables

    Although she rarely ate and did not condone slaughter

    At the sight of this, even her mouth began to water!

    She moved closer as her analysis became complete

    None of the meals appeared to contain any meat

    Even so, she noted that no one was eating

    As her thoughts were interrupted by a slurred greeting

    “Hey there sweetie, lend me your ear

    Surprised to see a beauty like you, over here!”

    A Machoke spoke brashly, ending with a cough

    As Mew kind of wished he would just back off

    “Thank you…” she whispered, not wanting to be rude

    Then the Machoke leaned in closer, thinking he was a cool dude

    “Hey, I’ve been wondering about this forever…

    Is it Mr. or Ms. Mime, or whichever?”

    Mew became worried, since she didn’t know the answer

    And she tried to divert their attention by looking at a nearby dancer

    “Come on sweetie, it’s just a simple question!”

    The Machoke spoke, as his voice gained a hint of aggression

    “Whichever” Mew replied, hoping it was true

    “Well then, which one would best describe you?”

    Mew gasped as she finally understood

    This rude Machoke was hoping to give her wood!

    Mew took a step back and drew a frightened breath

    To her kind, relations would eventually result in her death

    But her impending doom would seem like a minor gripe

    If she got together with this moron who was SO not her type!

    “You look worried” he said, “Don’t be upset…

    One look at mine, and you’ll instantly be wet!”

    Mew wanted to erase him, but knew that she shouldn’t

    Morals aside, it was more of a fact that she couldn’t!

    To attack she would have to shed her disguise

    Even if only for a second, that would not be wise

    If she were to reveal her true form here, no matter how adorable

    The consequences would indeed be deplorable!

    “Isn’t it too early for you to be committing rape?”

    A nearby snake-Pokémon said, as the Machoke’s mouth was agape

    “Usually you get to stay free until at least Christmas Day”

    “Keep it in your pants, or you’ll miss the evening’s buffet”

    “Sorry, officer Snivy! I won’t happen again!” the Machoke plead

    “Piss off, bonehead” Snivy said while scratching his head

    The Machoke scrambled away and disappeared among the crowd

    Leaving the two of them alone, as Snivy sighed out loud

    “T-Thank you…” Mew said, still urging to be left alone

    If not for his presence, by now away she would have flown

    “Not a problem, miss…” he answered, clearing out his ear

    “Or perhaps that was ‘mister’, I didn’t quite hear!”

    “Not you too!” Mew shouted, starting to bicker

    As Snivy looked surprised before giving off a snicker

    “Oh no, I just want a new story to bug him with” was his reply

    “See, it would be hilarious if you actually turned out to be a guy!”

    “I’m female, if that’s what you want to know”

    Mew said, Snivy looking mighty disappointed in the snow

    “Well, I’ll tell him differently if I catch him up to some other crime…”

    “Everyone else seems to be in high spirits, so try to have a good time!”

    Snivy left her for an Eevee as Mew stood and stared

    These encounters had caught her a bit unprepared

    She thought, “Could this be what Christmas is all about?

    In that case, perhaps it wouldn’t be wrong for me to drop out-”

    Before finishing her thought, she left the table

    Unwillingly as she was pulled into a dance most unstable

    “Come my darling, let us dance the night away!”

    “We’ll move over this snow like a true winter sleigh!”

    It was a Blaziken that had spun her around in a whirl

    Laughing uncontrollably, he sent her flying away in a twirl

    She was half-expecting someone else to instantly catch her

    Once again manhandling her, and turning her into a blur

    But as luck would have it, no one came

    So she spun to the outskirts of the area again

    Taking a moment to try to calm down

    She looked back at the party with a big frown

    “I knew these were wild Pokemon, but…” she thought

    As she noticed someone her attention sought

    Another Mr. Mime, who appeared to be kind of sleepy

    He was shuffling away from the crowd, very mysterious and creepy

    It was then that Mew knew for sure

    This party had been a rather terrible detour

    Taking one last look back at the swarm

    She finally turned back into her regular form!

    Fleeing quickly, she left the Mr. Mime in a daze

    Praying that this would not any suspicions raise

    Flying fast and with an increasing height

    The Mew at long last faded away into the night…

    Mew had made it quite far before she exhaled

    Seems that her mission to slip in unnoticed had failed

    While she actually wanted to stay and enjoy the festivities…

    It appears that she was not up for some of the activities!

    … Is this Christmas? Even so, she truly did not want to give up

    She had almost been found out, yet didn’t want to stop!

    There would have been more to see, had she remained a Mr.Mime

    Having a good time once in a while, could it really be a crime!?

    She thought about returning as herself, before cracking a smile

    Doing something like that would simply not be her style

    Although in truth, she would do anything to not soon

    Have to spend another night with no one but the faceless moon

    She has likened herself to the moon ever since birth

    Soaring majestically, far above the lively earth

    Floating all alone over a million miles away

    Everyone looks up to it, but never have anything to say…

    And so began the passing of yet another unfulfilled night

    She was free, but without another soul in sight

    The silence and solitude she had come to know so very well

    Instead made her feel like she was locked inside a cell

    Spending her days researching, she was called Earth’s mother

    For she knew more about life than any other

    But learning the ways of creatures big and small

    Did nothing to cure her emptiness, at all!

    Though so very wise, she was not deluded

    She knew that all her life she had been secluded

    And by knowing so much, yet experiencing so little

    Her will to live had become rather brittle

    Born legendary, her existence was one of limitless possibilities

    She was blessed with a long life as well as incredible abilities

    One would think her goals in life would come rushing

    While in reality, she truly had nothing…

    Her greatest wish was actually far from vain

    She was not interested in power, money nor fame

    Although the longing was there, the solution remained unknown

    Perhaps something akin to a family, one that she could call her own…?

    A mother, or someone who is loving and kind!

    An older brother, always having a superior mind!

    Just… Anyone! Someone that’ll keep her from going insane!

    With something like that, she would never feel lonely again!

    A storm was picking up as the air filled with snow

    But in her normal form, she was never cold, hungry or slow

    She knew that she would be fine through this whole ordeal

    And kept moving until she suddenly heard a sorrowful squeal

    Although her night had already been blown

    She knew that she just couldn’t leave it alone!

    She moved closer as the storm had lost its stability

    And whoever it was would have reduced visibility

    “-addy, no!” a light voice pierced the storm

    As in the haze of snow, Mew began to see a form

    For right in the middle of this unforgiving blizzard

    Stood a young Squirtle, hunching over a collapsed Charizard

    “Daddy! No! Please don’t die!”

    The child wailed as he started to cry

    Mew did not have to be a wise one most distinguished

    To notice the flame on his tail had already been extinguished…

    “Please! My daddy’s dying, help my daddy, you!”

    The child continued, unfazed at the appearance of Mew

    He could not exactly be picky on who to ask for assist

    As he could only make out a pink blur in the powerful mist

    Mew approached the Charizard’s massive size

    This storm had obviously taken him by surprise

    They must have just been outside flying

    What a horrible way to end up dying…

    While healing was not hers but Celebi’s specialty

    She thought that fixing this should not be an impossibility

    Perhaps if she were to all the cold inside his body drain

    Like a phoenix, he would spring back to life again?

    She had barely gotten started before the entire

    Charizard suddenly burst into fire!

    The Squirtle jumped back, receiving a scare

    While Mew just hovered closely to the mighty flare

    “GRAAAAAHHH!” the Charizard yelled

    As his entire body felt like it was being meld

    After a few moments, the ball of fire ceased its burning

    As the Charizard slowly felt his powers returning

    “DADDY! YOU’RE ALIVE!” the Squirtle shouted

    Never having lost hope, never having doubted

    The Charizard was confused and started to look around

    But nowhere the pink figure he had felt was to be found

    The Charizard flinched, “If not for her, I would be…”

    “Tell me, son… Who was it that helped me?”

    “It was the spirit of Christmas!” the Squirtle said

    As he stopped crying and started smiling instead

    “Wait, was THAT Christmas?” Mew thought as she fled through the squall

    Either way, she really didn’t want this night to end up in a Pokeball!

    Forgetting about the two, even though it was not exactly biblical

    She’ll never know that she had just handed out a true Christmas Miracle!

    Still feeling down, she finally made it home

    A place so secret, even its description shall remain unknown!

    In all this secrecy, she was quite surprised to sense

    That someone was in there… It made her tense…

    Could it be her friend, master of the flora?

    Even so, Mew sensed more than one aura

    No one untrusted knew about her favorite place to hide

    And so, she decided to carefully look inside…

    “Welcome back, Mew! Happy Holiday!”

    Celebi exclaimed in a most cheerful way

    “Hey, there’s this thing called ‘Christmas’, and it truly sounds fun!”

    “We have everything prepared, so let’s try it at once!”

    Celebi was there, together with a strange crew

    A Gallade and Kabutops, as well as that brash Pikablu

    While Celebi claimed that they were trusty and would not tell

    Mew still hadn’t gotten used to their presence all that well

    Her home had been decorated with various things

    Mostly weird trinkets, among them balls of glass on strings

    Everything was less glamorous than what she earlier had gotten to see

    … Surely, that tiny little branch was not supposed to be a Christmas Tree!

    A few hours ago, this would have been great

    Now? It all felt a little… Lightweight.

    “Oh! Almost forgot…” Celebi said, picking up a mysterious rag

    At closer inspection, it was more like a colorful and cubically formed bag

    She used her psychic abilities to remove its content

    Sent it flying Mew’s way and gladly said “Here’s your present!”

    Mew caught it and began examining it

    A bar of calcium, yet nothing special it seemed to emit…

    Mew frowned, “Hmm… I don’t know if it’s a keeper…”

    Celebi laughed, “Not like that, try to look at it deeper!”

    That’s when Mew noticed what she hadn’t earlier seen

    The calcium’s electrons were not twenty, but actually nineteen!

    “It’s called potassium, an element the humans created!”

    Celebi continued as Mew became elated

    Mew wanted to start experimenting with it right away!

    “This is incredible! Thank you so much!” she proceeded to say

    “Don’t thank me, thank the others!” Celebi said, pointing to their additions

    “They’re the ones that got the present, and taught me all of these traditions!”

    “It was our pleasure” Kabutops said, as he decided to bow

    “I know my way around labs, just don’t ask me how…”

    “What’s with that bow, did age finally get your back?”

    The Gallade snickered, shining with the color opposite of black

    “Being humble is fine, but it’s not like there was a rule!”

    “No need for all that stuff, these two are totally cool”

    “Maybe you could stand to learn some respect…”

    Pikablu mumbled quietly, hoping to interject

    “Hah!” the Gallade said, “I can’t believe I’m hearing that from you!”

    “Mr. I’m-gonna-beat-up-legends-so-I-can-be-a-legend-too!”

    The bickering went on as Mew deeply sighed

    However, she did not feel the usual instinct to hide

    Rather, watching the chemistry between these three

    Filled her up with what she would later identify as “Glee”!

    ‘Twas not a family, but some components were there

    Siblings fighting each other, but never ceasing to care

    Far from what she had experienced at the magnificent ball

    Could THIS be Christmas? It was a human tradition, after all…

    If this was the proper way to celebrate Christmas or not

    It didn’t really matter, because she was enjoying it a lot

    And even though her true holiday mission was far from clear

    She knew that she would get another shot at it… Next year!

    Here's an extension! Not quite an epilogue, but just something extra...

    - - - - - - - - -

    Somewhere in a dark, damp cave
    Sits old man Mewtwo, dignified and grave
    "Christmas? Bah! Humbug!" he started to exclaim
    And finished it, because in the end no one else came
    There he'll sit forever, known by nothing but his name
    Since he prefers to be alone… What a shame…
    But rest assured that if celebration WAS his aim
    That party would be anything BUT lame!
    Using his charms, he would get the most beautiful dame!
    Even her strongest suitors he would be able to tame!
    The ones that would question him would be looking for a maim…
    Humans, Pokémon… They all implode the same!

    But in the end, sitting alone in a cave was all that became…
    And he himself knows that he has only one person to blame…
