    And I swear to every deity imaginable, if you stop this fic, I stop mine! [/threat]
    Well, we simply can't have that, now can we? [/serious!]
    Seriously, I love it to death. It's so damn cute I can't even explain it. The pokemon translations always crack me up, and Shi is too cute for words! The new characters and new pokemon are uber interesting. Five star rating baby!
    Yes, I learned early on that I don't need to get too descriptive with all the characters and Pokemon because if I give just enough description, people can use their imaginations to make the Pokemon look however they want, as well as the new characters. The words themselves are what drives my characters, I suppose. I am dying of happiness overdose.
    XD, this is one of the most surreal fanfics I’ve ever read. XD, I like Tommy. He’s into the occult. Awwww, poor Gary isn’t as original as he thought. Poor baby. I think you made Richie the most level headed of them all. It makes sense to me. I knew Shi and Richie would have another private rendezvous. There is something going on between those two, LOL.
    Arti, I would <3 it if you could elaborate on the surrealism part. And yes, I do try to keep it as fresh as I can, and my inspirations stems from...everything it seems.
    Yes, Richie is the level head. Then Gary. Then Ash falls way at the end, he'll be the eternal glomp-bottom, ya know?
    And Shi *loves* Richie...for reasons yet unexplained..........*yes, hint*
    I love how Shi is the one who suggests that Ash is destined to be with both Richie and Gary. LOL on Shi being a pokémon. I really enjoyed this chapter. YAY, they’re a couple now!
    Yes, they can no longer deny the truth to themselves....THAT would be treading too far on anime territory. XD

    And don't you worry Fanderichie, the next chapter is planned and already started.

    The evening sky is darkening in the horizon, and Ash sits on a small rock, watching Gary and Richie silently as they help Tommy set up a large tent. His eyes reflect bewilderment, confusion, and fear. Shi sits happily on his lap.

    NARRATOR
    Darkness is falling for our heroes after they successfully completed a
    ritual to obtain a powerful psychic Pokemon known as Shi. However,
    with a purplexing revelation of sorts revealed to the three trainers by their
    new friend, Tommy, they all find themselves unable to speak with each other.

    Richie finishes hammering in his spikes, allowing a few quick glances over to Gary, who was kneeling over another spike, attempting to tie it. He doesn't notice Gary is glancing his way quickly as well, untill their eyes finally meet up accidentally. Both quickly look back to their work, and blush moments later.

    TOMMY
    The tent looks great, guys.

    RICHIE
    If we set my tent up right next to yours, I'm pretty sure I can zip them together.

    TOMMY
    That would be great! More than enough room for four.

    Richie nods and walks away, towards his backpack. Gary takes the opportunity to walk to wear Richie was, and quickly ties the spike to the tent. He then looks over to Ash, sees the teen is lost in thought, and turns to see Pikachu and Sparkie are frolicing happily in a field, with Thespia playing a game with Happy, Rose, Cruise, and Zippo. He thinks a moment, then retrieves his three Pokeballs, and opens them silently, not wanting to bring unwanted attention to himself. Umbreon, Misdreavus, and Dodrio appear, all three happy to see Gary.

    UMBREON
    Umbreon!*
    (*Oh, little Okey wants to play more! He's so cute.)

    MISDREAVUS
    Mis...Mis...*
    (*Where in the world are we now? I'm sensing this place is...strange)

    DODRIO
    Dooooodddoooooorrrriooo*
    (*Ugh, he wants to train us at nighttime again?)
    (*But we were finally getting our virtual lives together inside that damn ball!)
    (*True, by the time we get back our reservations at the Carlotta will be completely waisted)

    Gary kneels and pets his Umbreon warmly behind it's ear, causing the dark-type Pokemon to beam with heightened serenity.

    GARY
    Hey Umbreon...

    UMBREON
    Umbreon!*
    (*Oh Gary! You're making me think nasty thoughts again, you vixen!)

    Gary smiles happily at his Misdreavus.

    GARY
    Misdreavus, how are ya boy?

    Misdreavus blushes and flips around three times rapidly, then smiles brightly at his master.

    MISDREAVUS
    Misdreavus, mis mis mis!*
    (*I keep thinking about what you told me, Master...how I'm the prettiest Pokemon you've ever seen! It makes me...suprisingly happy!)

    Gary stands and motions to the other Pokemon.

    GARY
    Why don't you three go play with the other Pokemon?

    The three Pokemon look at the others with trepidation, not sure how to proceed. Gary offers them a reassuring smile.

    GARY
    It's okay! I want you three to start...socializing...with other Pokemon more!

    Misdreavus slowly floats over to the others, followed by Dodrio. Umbreon looks back at Gary, still with uncertainty in his eyes. Gary laughs lightly and bends over to stroke Umbreon.

    GARY
    I know ever since you were an Eevee I've kept you all isolated...that's going to start changing.
    Go on...you don't have to battle with them...just play!

    Umbreon is less-nerved after several moments of Gary's soft massages, and he nods once and runs over to Richie's Pokemon.

    It isn't long before the Pokemon have begun calling Shi to play with them. Shi seems intent on staying perched on Ash's lap, until the trainer himself laughs once and decides to join in the fun himself.

    ASH
    Yeah! Come on Shi, let's have fun!

    SHI
    Shiiii!*
    (*Oh Ashy, you're youthful exuberance is one of my favorite qualities about you! Okay!)

    Tommy watches this, and walks over to his backpack, and retrieves a Pokeball.

    TOMMY
    Come on out, Coituscopia!

    A Coituscopia emerges from it's ball, and looks around.

    COITUSCOPIA
    Coitusco, co co!*
    (*So many wants, so little time)

    TOMMY
    Hey, go have fun!

    Coituscopia happily goes to join in with the others and Tommy then walks over to Gary, leaning onto a tree as he watches Gary take a drink of water from his flask.

    TOMMY
    I apologize.

    Gary turns his head to look over his sholder at Tommy with slight suprise.

    GARY
    Hmm?

    TOMMY
    I apologize for what I said earlier...about the threesome coupling thing...I guess
    I just...think a little too freely for my own good.

    Gary turns his head back and twists his flask shut. He then stands and turns to Tommy. His eyes, however, no longer look annoyed, but somewhat sad.

    GARY
    Do you think Ash loves Richie?

    It is evident Tommy was not prepaired for this question, and he sweatdrops.

    TOMMY
    Um....well...he looks at *both* of you kind of...I don't know...

    GARY
    And you think Richie and I...like each other?

    Tommy continues sweating, but clears his throat.

    TOMMY
    Don't you?

    Gary's eyes travel around the campsight, until he spies Richie unloading his backpack. He allows several moments to watch the trainer.

    GARY
    Well...it really doesn't matter what I think. Richie probably thinks I'm lame.

    TOMMY
    He looks a little lonely. Why don't you go over and talk to him.

    The suggestion weighs on Gary's sholders, and he sighs. He nervously walks over to where Richie is setting up his tent, and begins helping him.

    RICHIE
    Hey...thanks.

    GARY
    Yep.

    Gary helps Richie lay out the tent next to Tommy's.

    GARY
    Boy, coming to this island sure has changed my life around.

    RICHIE
    Me too. I feel like so much has happoned over such a short time.

    Gary looks over to Ash, seeing he is now playing hop-scotch with the Pokemon. He smiles.

    GARY
    Ash doesn't seem to be affected by any of it.

    Richie walks up next to Gary and watches Ash play also, grinning.

    RICHIE
    He's matured so much over the years, yet in some ways he will always be the
    same Ash.

    Gary moves his head to face Richie, and he nods.

    GARY
    He can walk out of any situation and that cheerful grin will be back on his face.

    RICHIE
    I know! I sometimes wish I was that naive.

    GARY
    Yeah, ignorance is bliss...for the less-intelligent.

    Richie shifts his feet so that he is now standing towards Gary, his face looking up at the teen's with understanding.

    RICHIE
    But when you're a deep-thinker, you can't help but see all the shades-of-grey.

    Gary half-smirks and looks down at Richie with a wink.

    GARY
    Black and white is for losers.

    Richie laughs and flashes his perfect smile at Gary, and twists his left foot into the ground rapidly to help release the energy that had suddenly built up inside him.

    RICHIE
    I think I understand why Ash likes you so much.

    Gary kneels down, so that he's now looking slightly up to Richie, but they are practically at eye-level.

    GARY
    Yeah, Ash really has the best taste, doesn't he?

    Richie is overjoyed by the compliment, and closes his eyes in happiness. Gary sees this, thinks a beat, then moves in quickly and plants a quick kiss on Richie's lips, closing his eyes momentarily as he does. He then moves back, his smile faded before Richie can re-open his eyes.

    RICHIE
    ...whuh?

    Richie looks at Gary with suprise, seeing a new emotion on his face...looking both turned on and frightened at the same time, obviously mirroring how Richie now felt. Richie takes several large breaths, and Gary simply watches him, waiting for a reaction. He gets it, when Richie suddenly grabs the front of his purple shirt and pulls him back with a yank, allowing the two just enough time to close their eyes and open their mouths before the sweetest French kiss either had ever experienced took controll. Gary wraps his left arm around Richie's back, and Richie grabs the back of Gary's neck, rubbing the area tenderly. Richie then breaks away and smiles gingerly.

    RICHIE
    You know, you're not as vile as I originally thought.

    GARY
    And...It doesn't matter if you smell, cuz I like the way you smell.

    Richie giggles, causing Gary to laugh lightly as well, and the two continue kissing in less than seconds. This time, however, it becomes a little more forceful, and both teens are allowing their hands to roam freely now, exploring each other's bodies with awakened desire.

    ASH
    WHOA LOOOK OOOOUUUTTTTT!

    Richie and Gary break away from their embrace, and both hardly have time to react as Ash, who is holding Sparkie in one hand, Pikachu in the other, has Happy, Misdreavus, and Shi perched on his sholders and Zippo clinging to his belt, comes CRASHING HARD into them, causing all three to go flying into the air. Richie and Gary fly into Tommy's tent, ripping right through the material and causing the entire thing to collapse to the ground. Ash falls square onto Richie's. Zippo's tail begins burning melted holes right into the tent material, ruining it.

    GARY
    Ow..my head!

    Tommy runs up to the three, watching Richie and Gary attempt escape from the tent fabric that has netted around them.

    TOMMY
    Hey, my tent!

    Richie suddenly pokes his head out of the torn hole, and looks at the fallen trainer.

    RICHIE
    Ash, are you okay?

    Ash stands and brushes himself off.

    ASH
    Uh, I think so....

    Gary makes his way out of the fallen tent's entrance, and stands.

    GARY
    What happoned?

    Ash looks at the Pokemon around him.

    ASH
    I don't know! We were just playing and I...guess I lost my balance? I couldn't stop!

    Richie's head continues poking out of the hole, while Richie tries unfreeing his arms.

    RICHIE
    Zippo! My tent!

    We then see Umbreon, watching from a distance. His eyes narrow on Richie, who is currently making his way out of the tent. We then see a quick FLASHBACK of Umbreon as he witnesses the kiss between the two, then headbutts Ash from behind, causing him to break it up)

    UMBREON
    Umbreon!*
    (...And if I see you making the moves on *my* Okey-Wokey again, you'll lose more than your tent!)

    Fade to BLACK.

    Pokemon: <3Shi
    Chapter 7

    We open on a Blank screen with the episode title appearing; KISS MY ASTRAL PROJECTION!

    ASH (voice)
    Kiss...my...astral projection!!!!
    ***



    RICHIE
    Oh no....my new tent is completely ruined!

    TOMMY
    Mine too! This is most unfortunate!

    GARY
    Sorry Tommy.

    Ash suddenly looks down sadly, realizing the full extent of the damage he caused.

    ASH
    Yeah, sorry.

    Tommy sighs, and looks down.

    TOMMY
    It'll be hard traveling around this island without one.

    RICHIE
    Could we get some new ones in Enchantment City?

    TOMMY
    Yeah, I suppose.

    Shi floats around the area, and perches onto Richie's sholder for a moment.

    RICHIE
    Luckily it's not that cold...we can set up our bags by the fire for the night.

    TOMMY
    Maybe my Coituscopia could be of some assistance. Coituscopia!

    Coituscopia plops up to Tommy, the eyes from inside the darkness of the horn looking at him with curiousity.

    COITUSCOPIA
    Coicoicoicoi!*
    (The moment you wanted something, I already knew it!)

    TOMMY
    Do you think you could sleep in the front...to detect if anyone approaches?

    COITUSCOPIA
    Coi!*
    (*No problem! Hopefully someone rotton will show up so I can have me some FUN!)

    Gary takes his Pokedex from his pocket and points it at the Pokemon.

    DEXTER
    Coituscopia, the Horn of Plenty Pokemon. Coituscopia has the ability to create
    luscious fruit for others to eat, however sensing that someone wants to eat it will
    generally cause it to get violent.

    GARY
    Hmmm.

    TOMMY
    Yeah, the moment an intruder or thief *wants* something of ours, Coituscopia will detect it
    and put a quick stop to them!

    Shi flies from Richie's sholder, and circled around Ash a few times, attempting to cheer up the now-solemn trainer.

    ASH
    Hey Shi...

    SHI
    Shiiiiii!
    (*Oh come on Ash...you *know* your *still* just itching to go back to playing with the Pokemon!)

    Ash turns his head and smiles a little at Shi.

    ASH
    Awwe, I get it. You wanna play more with your new friends, huh?

    Shi giggles and wiggles his behind with glee on Ash's sholder.

    SHI
    Shhhiiiishhhhiii!*
    (*You are so kawaii! I don't even *need* to read your thoughts to know what you're thinking!)

    Ash laughs lightly, closing his eyes in merriment. He begins cooing at his Pokemon, and tickles him under his chin lightly. He then speaks to Shi in baby-talk.

    ASH
    Ha HA! Yes you are my wittle bittle Shi! I just WUV you!

    SHI
    Shiiii.....
    (*You...are starting to turn me on, Ash.)

    Shi nuzzles his nose into Ash's neck, causing the trainer to laugh out loud.

    ASH
    HA HA HA! Shii! You're too funny!

    Pikachu watches from about ten feet away, his arms crossed and looking deadpan at the scene. Sparkie is right next to him.

    PIKACHU
    Piiika.*
    (*F*ck. First that whiny little b*tch Larvitar, then the down-syndrome poster child Phampy...now *this* thing is going to soak up ALL of Ash's attention...ON TOP of Gary and Richie being here. What was the point of me coming back again?)

    Sparkie takes a few teeny steps closer to Pikachu, and gooses him quickly.

    SPARKIE
    Piiikapika!*
    (You want me to pound you again? Get your mind off it?)

    Pikachu smiles at Sparkie and in an instant the two are racing off back to the woods alone.

    Richie begins setting up the sleeping bags around the campfire, while Gary and Tommy begin piling all the tent remains up. Ash, after a few quick beats of thought, stands and gathers all the Pokemon he can find for another game of hop-scotch.

    ***

    The moon is now high in the sky, over a darkened Ganymede. Ash, Gary, Richie and Tommy are all sound asleep in their sleeping bags. Shi floats over the fire, watching Coituscopia march back and forth while it meditates energy.

    From a very far distance, Team Rocket is watching the campfire with binoculars.

    JESSIE
    They're still there, success.

    JAMES
    Now, while they sleep, we can creep!

    MEOWTH
    And steal some psychic Pokemon too!

    JESSIE
    That Shi will make me a Coordinating LEGENDARY!

    JAMES
    I will admit, it's quite possibly ten times cuter than my Chimecho.

    JESSIE
    It's a ZILLION TIMES CUTER and I MUST HAVE IT!

    WOBBUFFET
    Wobbuffet*
    (*I'm cute! *pout*)

    Shi now begins spinning, slowly at first but very soon is moving at a rapid pace. A bright white light shimmers from the jewel on Shi's forehead and a shimmering light sweeps over Richie, Gary and Ash.

    ***

    In the darkness, Ash looks at Richie and Gary, able to see them perfectly despite the lack of any light.

    ASH
    Whoa...were back!

    GARY
    Hey, I remember being here...and Shi!

    SHI (voice)
    Hey guys.

    The three spin around, and see Shi in his Red form again. He sees their shocked reactions and smiles.

    SHI
    Sorry!

    RICHIE
    Wow. So *you're* our new Pokemon?

    Shi giddily nods, unable to contain his happiness even in this state of reality.

    SHI
    I am now bonded to you three in a way I've *never ever* experienced before!
    It's all...so new and invigorating!

    Gary smiles, seeing the true sincerity of Shi's emotional words.

    SHI
    I'm hoping...this newness is the key...

    ASH
    The key to what?

    SHI
    The key...to figuring out every true question I've ever had about myself.

    RICHIE
    Such as...?

    Shi shrugs.

    SHI
    I don't know. I can't exactly remember much of that. I do know that I think on
    a much higher plane of thought whenever I've evolved into a ShiShi...that's where
    my quest for knowledge can ever truly begin. In this form...I am limited.

    ASH
    Oh...

    RICHIE
    So do you want us to help you evolve?

    Shi smiles warmly at Richie.

    SHI
    Oh, you're already doing that...

    Richie is about to reply to that, but instead tilts his head to the side and tries to decipher Shi's facial expressions.

    GARY
    I can't believe *you're* our Pokemon...I guess I can forgive you for invading our minds.

    Shi blushes, and allows Gary a half-serious smirk.

    SHI
    It wasn't an invasion, Gary. This is my way of getting to know you three...and allowing
    you to know the real me. Don't get me wrong, I *love* being a Pokemon, but...I also
    enjoy being able to take this form and interact with you three more than you could
    ever know.

    ASH
    You sound like you've been very lonely for a long time.

    SHI
    Well, mostly. But I've lived soooo long Ash...probably as long as your three souls have.

    GARY
    And how old would that be?

    SHI
    Older than the creation of this particular universe, that I can guarentee you.

    RICHIE
    Reincarnation...I dunno...

    GARY
    I believe in it...at least, I see a scientific explanation for it.

    RICHIE
    How's that?

    GARY
    Every Human is essentially powered by energy. Each energy pattern is different.
    When a person dies, the energy doesn't just evaporate, it simply moves somewhere
    else.

    Shi's eyes light up as Gary speaks, and walks next to Richie.

    SHI
    Then how would you explain people retaining memories from past lives?

    GARY
    Simple. It's only assumed that our brains are the only way to store memory, when
    it's possible this psychic energy can as well, considering it hosts properties our
    instruments have only tapped the surface on with our limited equipment.

    A jolt of gleeful energy sweeps over Shi, and he bear-hugs a now suprised, wide-eyed Richie.

    SHI
    OHMYGOD!!!! Richie! Did you hear that?!? You have a unique understanding
    of the occult, and Gary has the unique ability to understand the physical science
    behind it! You do realize there is *nothing* you two couldn't achieve...someday.

    RICHIE
    Uh....

    ASH
    So like...they can make magic?

    Shi lets go of Richie and turns to Ash.

    SHI
    Right now, the future is uncertain Ash. Anything could happen.

    GARY
    After this past week, I feel like everything *has* happoned.

    RICHIE
    No kidding.

    Shi takes several steps away from the three, and raises his arms majestically to each side, and moments later thousands upon thousands of tiny screens surround them all, like tiny stars in the cosmos. Ash, Gary and Richie look around in wonderment, their breaths taken away.

    SHI
    What you are looking at, are every possible reality I can access that hosts counterparts to you three.
    And as such, each parallel version of yourself has been reincarnated time and time again,
    which really makes your overall chii very, very mighty. A true force to be reckoned with.

    ASH
    Whoa.

    GARY
    This...is...incredible!

    RICHIE
    To see this...all these realities...

    Ash looks over to Richie and sees a tear forming in his eye. Richie sees Ash and smiles at him, taking his hand and squeezing it gently.

    GARY
    I wonder...would all those other me's be as weird inside as I am?

    SHI
    Some are even more twisted. But Gary...I've seen you go through this a million times...
    You realized you loved Ash, but you were afraid he was straight...

    Richie's face goes from serious to hysterical in literally seconds, and he has to hold his stomache to keep from falling over in laughter, causing Ash, Shi and most of all Gary to look at him with raised eyebrows.

    RICHIE
    HAHAHAHAHA! I'm sorry...hehehe....you thought Ash was straight?

    Ash sweatdrops, and Gary raises one of his eyebrows.

    ASH
    Huh?

    Gary smirks and crosses his arms.

    GARY
    Well, I kinda figured he wasn't by the Indigo League...but by then he was distracted...

    Richie smiles at Ash.

    SHI
    Anyways...you were afraid he was straight, so you decided that the best way to keep you two
    apart of each other's worlds was to make him hate you as much as you loved him.

    RICHIE
    Well yeah, that is a little twisted.

    Ash lets his jaw drop at Shi's reply, and turns to Gary quickly.

    ASH
    Gary, you're not weird...I've *always* known you really liked me.

    Gary suddenly turns to Ash, dumfounded.

    GARY
    Huh?

    ASH
    Well, when you first started acting all mean and stuff to me...sure I cried and stuff...
    but my mom explained it all to me...something about...uh...puberty? And how boys
    are...uh...too....what's the word? Immature? To understand why they are attracted
    to someone so they........pick on them?

    Everyone is silent around Ash for several moments, Gary especially has his eyes locked on the smaller teen with an intense stare.

    GARY
    ...you knew?

    Ash smiles, looking up at the spiky-haired young man before him with innocently true eyes. He nods once.

    ASH
    Uh huh. My mom said that if I was patient you would come around...and by the time the
    Silver Conference began, you had!

    Ash smiles and his arms are around Gary's waiste in no time, giving the still-shocked teen a giant bear hug. Ash's cheek is pressed firmly into Gary's chest, his eyes closed and his nose taking in Gary's sweet scent. Gary reacts slowly, but returns the hug in full.

    GARY
    Wow.

    Richie smiles at the scene, and turns to Shi.

    RICHIE
    So like, why are you showing us all this?

    SHI
    Because I think there is much you can learn.

    GARY
    Like what?

    SHI
    Ideas. Concepts. Possibilities for even your own future.

    ASH
    Like ways of becoming a Pokemon master?

    Laughter erupts from Shi, and he nods.

    SHI
    Yes, that would be a part of it. There's one in particular I think you three can appreciate.

    And in the blink of an eye, the three find themselves watching a universe through a screen that has sprung up from the sea of screens. They see a slightly older version of Ash, walking solemnly through a mall, holding a few shopping bags in his hands. He's wearing a light blue Old Navy t-shirt with red stripes around the collar and sleaves, and faded Old Navy painter jeans which are ripped at the knees. His right ear is pierced, and he has a stylish choker around his neck. He stops at the Bath & Beyond, a small smile coming to his face as he takes in the pleasant aroma.

    SATOSHI
    Mmmm.

    Satoshi walks into the store, oblivious to his universe's Gary and Richie that are browsing on the other side. Gary's double is wearing a faded purple Abercrombie & Fitch t-shirt, with khaki shorts that are loosely hanging around his waste, allowing his red-heart boxers to be seen. Also, he is donning a cream-colored fisherman cap. He is sporting our Gary's ying-yang necklace, but he is flashing other jewelry, such as several rings around his fingers, an ankle bracelet, and his tongue is pierced. Richie's counterpart is wearing a cute all-black Prada number, with a stylish black and forest-green one strap backpack that hangs to the front. His navel is exposed, and his belly-button is pierced. He has a green choker around his neck.

    SHIGERU
    I'm telling you, Hiroshi-san, he doesn't have a clue. This is perfect.

    HIROSHI
    As long as nobody sees us and tells him.

    SHIGERU
    Nah, this'll be the best suprise ever.

    HIROSHI
    But where should we go? I'm telling you...he'd love some kinky bondage stuff from
    the Hustler store! They even have fluffy handcuffs!

    SHIGERU
    NO! We went with your idea and got him that strange leather sex-hammock thing for
    X-mas, so this time it's my turn to pick the gift!

    Hiroshi sighs, and nods.

    HIROSHI
    Yeah, okay.

    Shigeru stops and looks up at at store. A smirk comes to his face.

    SHIGERU
    Say...ya think Satoshi-chan would like one of these?

    Hiroshi stops as well, looking into the windows and smiling as well.

    HIROSHI
    ...Depends on where we make them put it...

    Shigeru smiles at Hiroshi, and the two begin walking inside...already reaching for their chained-wallets.

    Satoshi walks out of Bath & Beyond, with a new bag filled with aromatic candles and scented bath oiles. He seems a little happier, but still looks lonely, especially as he sees two really cute guys dressed to the nines, about his age and walking through the mall, holding hands. He sighs, and his head goes down as he watches them leave.

    SATOSHI
    *sigh* I miss Shige-sama and Hiro-sama.

    He begins walking again, and spots Shigeru out of the corner of his eye, causing his head to spin to his direction quickly. He then sees Hiroshi walk up behind him, grinning and laughing with the taller teen. Satoshi simply stands there for several moments, the brightness draining from his face rapidly.

    SATOSHI
    Oh...

    Satoshi frowns, and eyes them sadly before walking again. He makes it as far as the food court, before quickly setting his bags on the table and collapsing on a chair, bawling his eyes out as he lowers his head to the table...completely oblivious to the stares of nearby eaters.

    Shigeru and Hiroshi smile at each other as they leave the store.

    SHIGERU
    Wow, and it will be worth every last cent.

    HIROSHI
    I can't believe they had a three-for-one special. I love mine...it feels...sexy.

    SHIGERU
    Satoshi-chan will love ours...I just hope he likes his.

    HIROSHI
    Oh, that won't be an issue. Say, you hungry?

    SHIGERU
    I think Sato-chan said he was cooking us dinner tonight.

    HIROSHI
    Mmmm, but still I need something...hey, is that...?

    They see Satoshi, still crying at the food court table, and they both rush over to him immediately, still shocked at seeing him at all.

    HIROSHI
    Satoshi-dono?

    SHIGERU
    Sato-chan?!? What...what happoned?

    Satoshi looks up at the two concearned teens, his red eyes puffy and his nose continually sniffing.

    SATOSHI
    You two...LIED to me! You HATE me! Just leave me alone!

    Shigeru looks over to Hiroshi, and they both frown.

    HIROSHI
    We did lie...but we were getting you a birthday gift.

    Satoshi suddenly looks up, his expression that of shock.

    SATOSHI
    ...really?

    SHIGERU
    Yeah! Uh...you might as well pick it up while were all here.

    Hiroshi smiles and kneels down next to Ash, and carresses his hand.

    HIROSHI
    I'm sorry we scared you...come on...let us give you your gift.

    SATOSHI
    What is it, Hiro-sama?

    Hiroshi returns to standing, and both smile at the smallest teen.

    HIROSHI
    You'll see.

    A few minutes later, Satoshi is pantless and getting his legs strapped over his head to a metallic chair by an older man. His eyes are wide and he's screaming.

    SATOSHI
    NO!! I DON'T THINK THIS IS WHAT I WANT!!!!

    Shigeru crosses his arms and smirks.

    SHIGERU
    Oh chill out. It'll be over before you know it.

    HIROSHI
    Oh Satoshi-san...always so eager to play, yet so reluctant to progress.

    Satoshi watches the older man ask Shigeru and Hiroshi exactly where they wanted him to do it. After a few glances, both teens point at the exact same spot...the dead-center of Satoshis guiche...which causes Satoshi's eyes to open wider as he blushes.

    MAN
    Okay...think pleasant thoughts.

    Satoshi bites his lower lip...and watches as the man successfully pierces a pretty bejeweled ring into his guiche. Then, within moments the straps are off and Satoshi is standing and placing his Old Navy pants back on, his blushing not residing in the faintest.

    HIROSHI
    It looks really hot.

    SHIGERU
    Yeah...can't wait to play with it.

    Satoshi, still looking down at the floor with embarassment, manages to glance up at Shigeru and Hiroshi with quick interest.

    The older man looks at the three a little oddly, but opens the door to let them leave the store all the same.

    MAN
    Hmmph, sounded like they were all intimately involved. I must be going deaf.

    As they exit the mall, Satoshi is carrying a cone of cotton candy, eating it while Hiroshi and Shigeru share a bag of kettle corn.

    SHIGERU
    You like it?

    SATOSHI
    Yes. It tastes great!

    HIROSHI
    No, we meant your more expensive present.

    SATOSHI
    Oh. It feels wierd....

    HIROSHI
    You'll get used to it.

    SHIGERU
    Besides, that's not all of your gift! Just wait till you see the new piercings
    Hiro-chan and I got.

    Satoshi stops and turns around, facing them.

    SATOSHI
    Really? Where?

    Both teens smile.

    HIROSHI
    You'll find out soon enough.

    SHIGERU
    Yeah, gotta leave some suprises for your birthday, after all.

    Satoshi breaks into his happy laugh, and runs to the two, breaking into them with a playful hug.

    SATOSHI
    I love you guys!

    Richie looks over to Shi.

    RICHIE
    Awwe, this is so cute!

    GARY
    I am just *loving* those clothes...

    Ash doesn't seem quite as 'thrilled' by the scene before him.

    ASH
    Um, yeah, it's great.

    Richie looks over to Ash and smiles.

    RICHIE
    Y'know, I'm starting to think *you* need to get your guiche pierced.

    ASH
    WHAT?!?

    GARY
    I have to admit it, Ashy, you *were* pretty sexy.

    ASH
    BUT!!.....BUT!!....you guys think so?

    RICHIE
    Yeah, not that you aren't cute already...but I think Shi is trying to tell us
    that we could be even more free in expressing ourselves?

    SHI
    Yeah. Well, that and I think those three are one of the *hotter* versions of
    you out there, and any fashion tips they could inspire within you would be
    most appreciated!

    Ash, Gary and Richie wait a beat, then sweatdrop simultaneously.

    GARY
    I have never encountered a Pokemon quite like *you*, Shi.

    Shi giggles, and nods.

    SHI
    Well, you can't say my motives are selfish when in the end you three will benefit
    the most.

    RICHIE
    Can't argue with that, I guess.

    GARY
    And just when I thought my life couldn't get more strange and complicated.


    SHI
    Yes, today in particular was host to many suprises. I...didn't think someone would
    recognize you three as being in a threesome relationship...before it started.

    ASH
    Uh...before it started?

    Shi laughs playfully as Richie blushes, exchanging quick glances with Gary...who nods to him.

    RICHIE
    Well Ash...Gary and I...

    GARY
    We, uh, like each other now.

    Ash looks at them both with curiosity.

    ASH
    What do you mean? Your finally not going to fight?

    Shi grins widely at Ash.

    SHI
    You are just...so cute!

    RICHIE
    No Ash...Gary and I are starting to like each other like we like you.

    ASH
    Oh.

    Shi looks over to Richie and Gary playfully.

    SHI
    He still doesn't understand it all exactly...

    She motions Richie over to Gary, and the two instinctively close their eyes and lock lips. Ash gasps, and blushes, hearing nothing now but the lip smacking and soft sighs coming from both teens as they release themselves to the pleasurable feelings.

    ASH
    Oh....

    Gary and Richie break apart, and both look at Ash with inviting grins.

    RICHIE
    Come on, Ash...

    Gary winks at Ash, and it doesn't take him very long to begin his slow approach to his boyfriends. He stops, and closes his eyes with awakening desire as Richie and Gary both begin rubbing their hands all over Ash's body. They move in, and exchange a threeway kiss, which ends up becoming rather heated and sloppy.

    SHI
    Finally. I'll leave you three to get acquainted with each other.

    Richie breaks away and looks over to Shi.

    RICHIE
    Well, where are you going?

    Shi turns, and offers Richie a warm smile.

    SHI
    Don't worry about me. This...is your guy's time. I have much preperation to go before I
    can evolve...and you three loving each other...gives me the boost I need to concentrate!

    Ash, who is now blown away by the sensations of making out with Gary and Richie *at the same time*, can only nod.

    ASH
    Uh...Sounds good to me....

    Richie offers Shi a nod, and willfully returns to his anticipated three-way make-out session.

    ***

    In the real world, Team Rocket are creeping up to the campsite in a bush. It doesn't take Coituscopia long to detect them.

    COITUSCOPIA
    Coi*
    (*Ugh, these fools want EVERYTHING.)

    Team Rocket hear the Pokemon shout, so they pop out from the bush.

    JESSIE
    Oh look, it's just a little horn thing. Come on.

    COITUSCOPIA
    CoitusCOPIA!!!!!*
    (*How would you three like to...oh....ASTRAL PROJECT FOR AWHILE!!! HAHAHAHA!)

    A red beam emits from the end of the horn, and suddenly Team Rocket is removed from their bodies.

    JESSIE
    WHA!!!!!!!!!

    JAMES
    I look so restful down there.

    MEOWTH
    Come on, just cuz we don't got our bodies don't mean we can't try nabbin'
    that Shi! Let's go!

    They begin floating to it, but as they near it's bejeweled pendant, it glows and they find themselves getting sucked inside Shi.

    Ash is now on his knees, gingerly playing with the belt-buckles of both boyfriends, who are at the moment lost in a sea of kissing each other. He undoes both clasps, and holds his breath with eager anticipation as he undoes both buttons, and begins reaching for the zippers as he hears a roaring crash behind him, causing all three to jump in suprise.

    RICHIE
    Shi?

    GARY
    Huh?

    Suddenly, the Team Rocket music begins playing and pale, ghostly images of Jessie and James appear from the darkness, a foggy mist surrounding them.

    JESSIE
    Prepair for trouble on the astral plane.

    JAMES
    Make it double even though it's insane.

    JESSIE
    To protect the world from devistation!

    JAMES
    To unite all people within our nation.

    JESSIE
    To denounce the evils of truth and love!

    JAMES
    To extend our reach to the stars above.

    JESSIE
    Astrally-projected Jessie!

    JAMES
    Astrally-projected James!

    JESSIE
    Team Rocket, exiting our coporeal bodies at the speed of light.

    JAMES
    So surrender Shi now or prepair for an astral-fight! Fight! Fight!

    Meowth forms from the mist, smiling happily.

    MEOWTH
    Astrally-projected Meeeeowth, that's right!

    Wobbuffet's spirit floats along the background.

    WOBBUFFET
    Woooobbbaa!*
    (*Being released from the confines of my physical manifestation is so...freeing!)

    Chimecho floats down and wiggles cutely.

    CHIMECHO
    Chime chime chime...*
    (*Chime Chime Chime...)

    Jessie and James both pause a moment, then react to seeing Ash on his knees, with both of his hands positioned at the crotches of Richie and Gary, who look at the invaders with shock.

    RICHIE/GARY
    Team Rocket!

    JESSIE
    Well, well, well. It would seem we've been underestimating the twerps.

    James seems transfixed on Ash, seeing the teen's wide, innocent eyes as he looks up at them causes him to blush, and allows his blue hair to cover his face quickly..

    JAMES
    Yeah...really puts *my* life into perspective, I guess.

    Ash eventually realizes where his hands are, and he blushes and stands slowly.

    JESSIE
    Face it James, if the twerp can land himself two boyfriends before you can even manage to
    go on one date your going to wind up a scary old man living with fifty Skitties.

    JAMES
    What? Now is not the time for this! Where is that adorable Shi?!?

    SHI (voice)
    I'm right here.

    Team Rocket spin around and see Shi in his Red form.

    JESSIE
    And who, prey tell, are you?

    SHI
    They call me Shi.

    MEOWTH
    No way....you're Shi?

    SHI
    I know all about you...

    JAMES
    Is that so?

    SHI
    It's sad really...how fate dealt you this card. In most universes, you are good friends
    with Ash and his friends...you all could learn *so much* about life from each other,
    yet you choose to do it the hard way.

    JESSIE
    I know a thing or two about my life thank you, and I'm fairly sure the only thing
    the twerp could teach me is how to bathe improperly...no thank you.

    SHI
    Teaching. Okay...that reminds me of something fairly amusing I just saw when I
    scanned your memories.

    JESSIE/JAMES
    Huh?

    Suddenly, everyone finds themselves grouped together in the back corner of a classroom. However, upon closer observation, all the students are in their mid-teens to late-teens and wearing Rocket Cadet uniforms, and the teacher is wearing a Team Rocket uniform. Ash is the first to react with curiousity. Jessie and James look around with a sense of familiarity.

    ASH
    Where are we?

    JESSIE
    James, tell me were not...

    JAMES
    Ugh, I know this room all too well, and *her*...

    In the front, the teacher is droning on in a cheerful tone.

    MS. BARKLAY
    Now, as you all are the first official class of Team Rocket's special branch of
    teamed-up field operatives, I must stress the importance of making sure you
    are teamed up with the *appropriate* teemmate! You must learn to work as
    one well-oiled unit! You must say Team Rocket's motto with clear precision
    and dignity! You will determine the fate of so much....*and certainly not least
    is my future teaching position here!!!*

    Towards the back of the classroom, Jessie and Cassidy are sitting next to each other, both looking into pocket mirrors and blushing their noses, hardly paying attention to Ms. Barklay through their silent conversation.

    JESSIE
    That Ms. Barkay sure likes to hear herself talk. It's obvious were the best of
    the best or they wouldn't have chosen us from all the other cadets!

    CASSIDY
    Clearly.

    JESSIE
    Of course, I won't have to worry about findind the best partner since I already *have*
    the perfect partner!

    Jessie smiles wickedly at Cassidy, who grins back.

    CASSIDY
    You and I *would* make a pretty hot team, wouldn't we?

    JESSIE
    We've done pretty good as a couple here so far...

    A wink from Jessie causes Cassidy to grin.

    CASSIDY
    You have a point....

    JESSIE
    And besides, in every successful relationship there's a stallion and a donkey, and
    might I say you would make the most powerful donkey I've ever seen.

    Cassidy's smile fades as she looks on, and begins thinking to herself.

    On the other side of the classroom, a bright-eyed James is sitting quietly at his desk, his hands folded calmly on his desk. He's listening intently to the teacher, a happy smile on his face. Next him him is Mondo, smiling dreamily at James just as intently.

    Behind them are James' and Mondo's friends, Butch and Kid Billy. Kid Billy is a punkish looking teen with bright pink hair and an intense stare. (For you readers' benefit, he's Lance's disgruntled younger brother for visualization purposes) Sitting next to him is Butch, who is listening with his eyes half-closed, and his head resting on his hand. His boredom apparent on his face. He finally looks over to Kid Billy and smirks.

    BUTCH
    Hey, whatya think? Should we go ahead and stick with each other?

    KID BILLY
    You sure you wouldn't rather be with *James*?

    Butch raises his head suddenly with suprise, and Mondo flicks his eyes with interest, however James himself is too involved with Ms. Barklay's information to hear anything.

    BUTCH
    You know I care about you...

    KID BILLY
    That's hardly the reassuring answer I was looking for.

    BUTCH
    Well you aren't exactly Mr. Commitment.

    Kid Billy bites his lower lip, and Mondo looks over to James with sudden worry.

    MS. BARKLAY
    Well then! I think it's time you all get officially paired up here at the registry.
    Just come up and I'll write it down.

    Cassidy suddenly stands and walks over to the other side of the room, much to Jessie's sudden confusion. Cassidy surveys several of the obviously gay cadets, who all sit together at that section of the class. After several moments of thought, she approaches Butch and formally greets him.

    CASSIDY
    Butch, right? I'm Cassidy. You're the one who wrote that paper on how customizing our
    Team Rocket outfits woiuld be a great way to help with intimidation, correct?

    Butch stands and nods, looking at her with a slightly uncertain smile. Kid Billy looks up at her with a sudden frown.

    BUTCH
    That's right.

    CASSIDY
    Right. You've impressed me several times in this class...I'd like to partner
    up with you. I think we could not only spread around some momentus
    Team Rocket power, but some serious queer power as well.

    Butch suddenly looks at Cassidy with glossed-over eyes.

    BUTCH
    A stylish and forceful lesbian in class all year with me and I didn't realize it?!?

    Cassidy grins, and leads Butch up to the front with no problems. James watches Butch go with a sudden shock.

    JAMES
    Butch! Wait! I...

    Kid Billy's mouth gapes open, as he's obviously suprised to see this turn of events. His anger is minute, however, compaired to Jessie who's face has turned beat red. And steam is floating from her head.

    JESSIE
    You....you....

    Cassidy, after registration, walks back and grabs her purse and books.

    CASSIDY
    Sorry hun...It's just....I need to be worshiped, and Butch is the perfect guy for the job.

    Jessie sweatdrops.

    JESSIE
    Eh, come again? Isn't Butch gay?

    CASSIDY
    Please Jessie, that's the essential component.

    Jessie grits her teeth, and as Cassidy walks back to Butch fangs erupt from her mouth.

    JESSIE
    GRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!

    As butch gathers his belongings, James turns to him.

    JAMES
    I thought you said...

    Butch looks over to James with sadness in his eyes.

    BUTCH
    Uh...sorry guys, I gotta go....

    Butch walks away, leaving a depressed James and Kid Billy, and a now shocked Mondo who looks at James with a WTF expression. Jessie storms over to the other side of the room and grabs James by his collar, shaking him out of his seat and to his feet.

    JESSIE
    YOU'RE A *** RIGHT?

    JAMES
    AAAAaaaaaAAAAAaaaAAAAaaaAAAAYEEEESSS!

    JESSIE
    HELLO I'M JESSIE NICE TO MEET YOU.

    James finds himself literally thrown in front of Ms. Barklay's desk, and Jessie forces him to sign his name next to hers.

    JESSIE
    James, huh? Don't recall ever meeting you before, but together we will
    be the BEST pairing here. EVER. Or else!

    James, visibly frightened of Jessie, can only nod.

    Mondo looks like his entire world has been crushed, as he watches his "kinda-sorta" boyfriend go off with a new life without him. He suddenly looks down, heartbroken.

    MONDO
    No....

    Kid Billy watches the younger teen's expression turn sad, and taps his sholder.

    KID BILLY
    Hey Mondo...you okay?

    MONDO
    No, James didn't even say good-bye...

    KID BILLY
    Lesbians...who can understand them. How about...we team up?

    Mondo turns around and looks at Kid Billy.

    MONDO
    Really?!? I sure would appreciate it! If...if I got paired up with a straight guy, I may
    not be able to take it.

    Kid Billy smirks.

    KID BILLY
    Hopefully you'll be able to 'take it' with me. Hehehe.

    Mondo thinks a moment, then blushes.

    MONDO
    Well, I've created some interesting "Mechas" that have helped me practice *lots*. Teehee.

    Kid Billy raises his eyebrows, and together the two stand to go register.

    Shi turns to the older Jessie and James, his srms crossed.

    SHI
    So instead of listening to your hearts and FIGHTING for what your heart told you was
    true, you simply allowed yourselves to become...driftwood.

    Jessie and James look at each other, silent.

    MEOWTH
    Wow, this really puts things into a new poispective.

    WOBBUFFET
    WobbUFFET!*
    (*Holy sh*t!)

    JESSIE
    What are you saying? Cassidy really *was* my one true love?

    JAMES
    And I should have spoken with Butch like I thought?

    Shi shrugs.

    SHI
    All I can say is...in most realities I've encountered you...you were at your happiest
    with them.

    GARY
    Wow, so all this time Jessie and James have been gay. It makes me hate them less.

    RICHIE
    Are you serious? I knew since the first time I saw them. But...I did wonder about
    Butch & Cassidy. They were kind of the wild metro cards, ya know?

    Jessie and James look at each other, nonplused.

    JESSIE
    Call me a party pooper, James, but I just don't think capturing this Pokemon is in our
    best interests anymore.

    JAMES
    I know. Hearing people shout vague flaws out about us is one thing, but this is a new
    level of terror for me.

    MEOWTH
    I tink it's fascinatin'.

    Meowth finds himself missing the barbaric pounding of a hammer by inches and Jessie snarls at him.

    JESSIE
    Breathe a word of this to anyone and you'll be beyond sorry.

    Suddenly, the entire world ripples, and is replaced by the blackness.

    ASH
    Huh?

    SHI
    It's Tommy. He's awake, sees Team Rocket, and is trying to wake you all up.
    Sorry boys, I wanted you three to have some fun, but I guess it's time to rise
    and shine!

    And with that, they are all gone, except Shi, who smiles with a nod.

    NARRATOR
    With Shi now on our heroes' side, the journey to Enchantment will have an
    enchantment all it's own! Will Ash get to experience his heart's truest desire?
    Stay tuned!

    Great chap... looks like Ash ain't no playboy no more. Jess and James are homosexuals as well. Explains a lot. Keep up the good work!


    Thanks to Aurora Wish for making this card- totally awesome.

    I love how you put what the pokemon are saying I absolutely loved the Richie x Gary makeout scene. It was my favorite part. Those too do really fit well together. I loved the references to Ash being distracted by Richie. LOLZ!! Ash’s mother knows everything. The Hiroshi/Sato/Shige part was great too.

    And XD on not being finished yet.

    We open on a bright, crisp morning. In the forest, travelling at a moderate pace, are Ash, Richie, Gary and Tommy. Pikachu and Sparkie are still half-asleep clinging to their trainer's sholders, while Shi seems up and in a relatively good mood while perched on Gary's sholder.

    NARRATOR
    Another day has dawned on Ganymede, and our heroes are back on the trail for
    Enchantment City. After a hearty breakfast compliments of their new friend Tommy,
    they trek on with high spirits. And as the path grows more steady, Ash is the first
    to notice the majestic city in the distance.

    Ash's eyes widen, and he smiles and points.

    ASH
    Ah hah! Enchantment City! We're finally there!

    Tommy smiles at his friends.

    TOMMY
    I hope you three aren't disgusted by love or anything, because in Enchantment
    City, love is *constantly* in the air!

    Gary, Richie, and Ash all stop, and their eyes widen.

    GARY
    What does that mean?

    RICHIE
    A figure of speech, right?

    TOMMY
    Oh no, not at all! Enchantment City is reputed for it's ability to make lovers
    rekindle their flames and those that are searching for love are sure to find it.

    ASH
    Hmmm.

    Fade to BLACK.

    Pokemon: <3Shi
    Chapter 8

    We open on a Blank screen with the episode title appearing; WE'LL ALWAYS HAVE ENCHANTMENT CITY

    ASH (voice)
    We'll Always Have Enchantment City!!!!!
    ***

    At the main entrance to the city, the group stop to marvel at the sheer *romantic* flavor all the buildings have, and harpsicord music can be heard everywhere. While there isn't a huge public display of affection or anything, some people are holding hands while everybody has a blissful, happy look on their faces.

    RICHIE
    So this is Enchantment City?

    GARY
    Now we gotta find a powerful Pokemon.

    TOMMY
    Oh, you must mean Enchant.

    ASH
    Do you know where we can find Enchant?

    TOMMY
    That's easy. Enchant is always happy to meet people, especially those who are searching for love!

    Ash blushes, and moments later Gary and Richie blush as well.

    RICHIE
    After, we need to stop and get supplies, including two new tents.

    ASH
    And food. I can already feel that lunchtime is approaching.

    TOMMY
    Alright, follow me. We'll be there in no time.

    They follow Tommy, who leads them down the main road to a rather beautiful building covered in sparkling crystals.

    At the main entrance, Team Rocket enter and look around the town.

    JAMES
    Well...this is interesting.

    JESSIE
    A bit rustic and impractical if you ask me. Were they trying to build art or a town?

    JAMES
    What? Surely you can appreciate the brilliance behind the design! It would look
    *absolutely PERFECT* on a postcard. The theme? Love. So simple yet true.

    MEOWTH
    Enough!!! I'm tellin ya's, that Shi will be our ticket to glory so come on!

    Jessie and James both look off, then at each other strangely.

    JESSIE
    Meowth, I dunno...*should* we bother trying to nab Shi?

    MEOWTH
    WHHAAAAAT??!?!!?

    JAMES
    I agree with Jessie, for some reason I have a very strong impression not
    to capture Shi.

    MEOWTH
    Have you two completely lost it?!? If you don't want that Shi to win you Contest
    Ribbons, then I'll just give it to da Boss!

    James shakes his head.

    JAMES
    The Boss with a Shi? That sounds like a recipe for disaster.

    MEOWTH
    Only cuz yer thinkin' small. Picture it...

    We fade in to see Giovanni waking up in bed)

    MEOWTH (v.o.)
    When da Boss wakes up in the morning and begins doing his morning exercizes...

    Giovanni, dressed in nothing but mini-briefs, begins doings sit-ups, leg lifts, push ups, lifting weights, ect.

    MEOWTH (v.o.)
    And as he works out, he'll wonder what it's all for....nobody appreciates his dedication!

    Giovanni is now looking in the mirror, sad as he flexes his muscles alone.

    MEOWTH (v.o.)
    That when he'll look at his beloved Shi, who not only will reaffirm his shattering ego with thunderous
    approval, it's charming and cute nature will sooth his tentions, and make him more at peace with
    himself! And ya know what he'll say then?

    Giovanni turns straight forward and speaks with Meowth's voice.

    MEOWTH (v.o.)
    For giving me such an adorable and kindred Pokemon, Meowth and his
    underlings shall be well taken care of for the rest of their lives!!!!

    We flash back to see James and Jessie both shaking their heads in shame.

    JAMES
    That was weak Meowth, even for you.

    MEOWTH
    I'D LIKE TA SEE YOU FIGURE OUT A WAY TO MAKE DE MAN HAPPY!!!!!

    James points to several Enchants roaming the area with their trainers.

    JAMES
    Well, what about these Pokemon who suspiciously look like Jinxes?

    MEOWTH
    Deir called Enchants. Not sure what's so special about them.

    JESSIE
    They are attractive in their own way, I suppose.

    JAMES
    There's so many around here I'm sure the villiagers wouldn't
    even miss one or two.

    JESSIE
    Or fifteen or twenty.

    JAMES
    Huh?

    JESSIE
    Well, when we get back to Hoenn I'll need an entorage to carry my luggage
    and protect me from the screaming frenzy of my adoring fans who will no doubt
    be zealously overjoyed to learn of my giant comeback to claim my Queen of the
    Coordinators crown. No autographs please! Hahahaa!

    MEOWTH
    Well, don't look at *me* for a mecha. I have no resources and Team Rocket doesn't
    exsist out here. So if you want fifteen Enchants, you betta be prepaired to carry dem.

    JAMES
    Jessie, you're being totally ridiculous!

    Jessie grunts.

    JESSIE
    How DARE you! I want fifteen Enchants and if you don't get them I'll get you!

    An old woman passes by them, and giggles.

    JESSIE
    What's so amusing, *grandma*.

    OLD WOMAN
    You three sound like you made it here just in time! Boy, those hostile waves are
    emanating from you like tsunamis!

    JAMES
    Well, you don't work with Jessie and Meowth, do you?

    Jessie grows fangs and glares at James.

    JESSIE
    Mind rewording that, dear James?

    OLD WOMAN
    Boy, I haven't seen such anger since...I think since before my first grandchild was born!

    JESSIE
    WHAT'S YOUR POINT??!!?

    The Old Woman takes a step back but continues to smile and remain playful.

    OLD WOMAN
    Obviously this is your first time here! Just walk down this road till you find
    the Crystal Temple. There, you three will meet a Pokemon that will do you a
    world of good, Enchant!

    She giggles and walks away, leaving Team Rocket to look at each other with wonder.

    ***

    As Tommy leads his friends up an elegant staircase, entering a marvelously grand room filled with various colored crystals dotting the entire area.

    RICHIE
    Amazing...!

    ASH
    Wow, this is so cool...

    Tommy grins, continuing his walk.

    TOMMY
    The Crystal Temple is one of Ganymede's most beautiful structures, it was built with love.

    ASH
    Love? What do you mean?

    TOMMY
    Only by loving one another were the town's settlers able to construct this. The details are long
    and detailed, but basically this whole place is a testiment to how deeply humans and Pokemon
    can love.

    GARY
    Are you speaking metaphorically?

    TOMMY
    No, quite literally.

    GARY
    Hmmm.

    As the three near a second door, an elegant woman wearing a sky-blue and indigo colored dress, emerges from it and smiles serenely.

    WOMAN
    Welcome to the Crystal Temple, travelors. I am Dana, the ever-most-coolest guide
    ever!!! Now, seeing as it's your first time, perhaps a little history is in order?

    GARY
    Actually, we're here to see the Pokemon Enchant. No tours needed.

    Dana places her hand to her chest in mock surprise.

    DANA
    Oh, how sweet of you to want true love right away! Most people are hesitant at
    first, but I can see you two couples are rearin to go! And lucky for you, Enchant
    has no official appointments today, in fact I suspect he *knew* you were coming.

    Gary responds to her statement with an air of curiousity, while Tommy looks back at his friends and grins.

    TOMMY
    Actually, I'm still a free agent, these three are in love.

    Ash, Richie, and Gary all blush when Dana scans them over, and her eyes widen.

    DANA
    A threesome? How utterly DELIGHTFUL! Enchant *loves* polygamous relationships!

    ASH
    Oh...

    RICHIE
    What does this whole...'experience' entail?

    Dana playfully winks at Richie.

    DANA
    It's different for everybody, but make no mistake, Enchant never fails
    when it comes to love. Please, right this way...

    Dana leads them through the door, and up a winding staircase. Ash they ascend, Dana offers them some information.


    DANA
    You may have encountered Enchants around this area, rest assured the Enchant
    your meeting today is a...oh...step above the others. He is a direct descendant from
    the Enchant leader that arrived on this Island centuries ago, and the people of this town
    hold him in the highest praise. He and his family line have had a direct control over
    the feelings of love and the physical manifestation of good luck.

    They reach a golden door, and she opens it, and motions for Ash, Richie, and Gary to enter. When they are through the door, Dana closes it behind them with Tommy at her side, shocking the trio as they are now alone in a room made entirely of multi-colored crystals. All three look around in awe, and then notice a throne-like chair near the far wall of the room. And sitting in the throne is a human-shaped Pokemon. They take a few steps closer, and realize...much to their shock...that Enchant is *very* similar looking to a Pokemon they were familiar with; Jynx. In fact, Enchant could be a twin to Jynx, with exception to the colorization which is completely different. Enchant's hair is indigo-colored, his skin is sky-blue, and he is dressed in green with yellow highlights.

    ASH
    It's a Jynx!

    RICHIE
    I don't think so...

    Richie holds up his Pokedex.

    DEXTER
    Enchant, the Human-shaped Pokemon. Enchant is the evolved form of Smoochum. It is said
    that encountering Enchant will bring good luck and happiness to whoever crosses it's path.

    ENCHANT
    (Welcome)

    The three stop, shocked at hearing Enchant's voice in their heads.

    ASH
    Whoa, did I just hear that?

    RICHIE
    I did too. He knows our language!

    ENCHANT
    (I know more than that. I am Enchant, guardian of love for this Island, and I sensed you three
    from the moment you arrived. And the vibrations of future change told me you three would
    be visiting this island for years. You three couldn't know this...but your arrival is most
    prophetic.)

    Shi pops his head out of Richie's sachel, and floats into the air.

    SHI
    Shiiiiiii!*
    (*You ain't just whistlin' Dixie)

    Enchant watches Shi with fascination, and it is apparent the Sphinx-like Pokemon has made an instant impression on him.

    GARY
    So our arrival is prophetic...does that mean you can prophecize how we can get home?

    Enchant doesn't answer Gary, instead keeping his eyes locked on Shi.

    ENCHANT
    (I...I am now....confused. *Are* you or *aren't* you the fourth?)

    Shi now stops spinning around, and rests in mid-air directly in front of Enchant.

    SHI
    Shi?*
    (Fourth what?)

    RICHIE
    Fourth? What does that mean?

    Enchant's pleasant smile fades, as he stares at Shi with intensity. A more disturbing face emerges as Enchant continues to look at Shi.

    ENCHANT
    (The only way I could help you three off the Island is by bonding you to your eternal loved ones.)

    Richie looks at Ash and Gary, and nods.

    RICHIE
    We are ready...we do love each other.

    Gary nods.

    GARY
    Somehow, I feel like it's the right thing...

    ***

    Team Rocket stops in front of the Crystal Tower, in complete awe. The building is literally covered in crystals.

    JESSIE
    James, I suddenly realize why fate has decided to bring us here.

    JAMES
    It's amazing! I wonder if they offer free tours?

    Jessie gets annoyed.

    JESSIE
    Oh, who CARES about tours, were taking all these crystals with us!

    James and Meowth react wildly.

    MEOWTH
    That must be over a million tons of crystals!

    JAMES
    How on Earth could we possibly move them when were trapped on an island.

    JESSIE
    ...But I have dreams too...a crystal cappucinno maker, a crystal bed,
    crystal staircases in a crystal palace!

    JAMES
    Jessie, let's stay focused. We need to capture a rare and exotic Pokemon.

    Jessie's eyes narrow.

    JESSIE
    Right. Why should I worry about crystals when my fame in Hoenn will reward
    me with priceless jewelry anyways?

    MEOWTH
    Phew, that was close.

    ***

    Enchant, now looking somewhat frightened, can only shake his head a little.

    ENCHANT
    (You three *do* have more than enough potential to be eternally bonded...in fact I sense
    you three have *been* eternally bonded for countless centuries already....but I cannot help
    I'm afraid.)

    Ash, Richie, and Gary all look at each other in confusion.

    ASH
    Why not?

    ENCHANT
    (Because there is a fourth. To bond you three together without the final person would
    be cruel. But still...)

    Enchant looks again at Shi, who is now just as puzzled as the Humans.

    ENCHANT
    (It's so strange...the fourth is fractured...incomplete...)

    Shi think a moment, then his eyes widen.

    SHI
    Shiii Shiiiiiiiiiii!?!*
    (Are you implying that *I'm* the fourth?)

    ENCHANT
    (Well, no. The fourth is a Human, living right now somewhere on this very planet...
    but there *is* a fracture and *you* do seem to inhibit part of that fracture...I'm
    frightened at what that could imply.)

    SHI
    Shiiiii*
    (What are you saying? I've known these three and their love for each other for centuries over countless universes and dimensions, and nothing your saying makes a lick of sense because I have always been...well, me...)

    ENCHANT
    (Perhaps because this universe is changing everything. Everything you knew will soon
    be obselete, and the future will be free for something else.)

    GARY
    This is confusing. So you can't help us.

    ENCHANT
    (Well, I can...but you all must understand the fact that tragedy will arrise from my help...
    there's....there's nothing I can do about that, I'm afriad. The bonding *will* be completed
    in full, in time, but I'm afriad it will have dire consequences.)

    The three look at each other with trepidation, but Shi seems to be taking the information harder.

    SHI
    Shiii*
    (If it means losing Ash, Richie or Gary then forget it.)

    ENCHANT
    (No, that isn't what I was referring to at all...besides, it's best not to know too much about
    the future, my family learned that the hard way. Please, follow me...)

    Enchant leads the group down a tasteful hallway.

    ENCHANT
    (You three are rather young to be eternally bonded. Our policy is usually to limit the age to
    fourteen, but in your case it will just add a couple of years to a love that is far older than myself.)

    Enchant leads them into a grand room, filled with roses, jasmine, and insense-burners. The walls have white satin
    clothes draping them.

    ASH
    Whoa...

    ENCHANT
    (Please, form a circle in the middle of the room. Shi, please stand in the center.)

    The four gingerly do as their told, holding hands and glancing at each other nervously. Enchant stands over a painted emblem, it's arms at it's sides and it's head lowered.

    ENCHANT
    (I shall look upon the destined souls...)

    Enchant's head raises and it's eyes are silvery white, practically glowing in the darkened room.

    ENCHANT
    (I shall look upon them and the light will bind their souls...)

    Suddenly, purple energy begins swirling around Enchant, in enen diametric form.

    ENCHANT
    (Fate, Destiny and Karma...seal them!)

    Enchant extends both arms outwards, and the energy travels rapidly to the four, surrounding them completely. Suddenly, all three boys close their eyes and grit their teeth, obviously struggling to remain still. As the magic's intensity grows, all three lose consciouness and fall backwards simultaneously. Moments later Shi falls as well.

    ***

    Ash is floating through blackness at breaknexk speads, and finds himself seeing images of his life; his mother giving birth to him, his first day of school, the day he met Gary Oak, his first Pokemon and bestest friend Pikachu, the day he met Richie, and finally today.

    He finds himself stopping just several feet from Gary and Richie, who also had similar journies. Lights, every color of the rainbow, splash around them and they are all wearing robes. Ash's is red, Gary's is blue, and Richie's is green. Shi is hovering nearby.

    ENCHANT
    (Voice)
    We are born into this exsistance alone, that is a universal truth.
    However, the fates have bestowed us the ability to never have to die alone.
    Love conquers death. In the end, it never can die, it can only continue.
    So fate shall keep you together for all the days of your lives.
    Join together.

    Ash, Gary and Richie all step twards each other...then *into* each other. They meld together, forming one unit. After observing this, Shi realizes he too should join in before it's too late, and enters the mix right before it finishes and bright light begins to flash, enveloping the meshed unit completely.

    ***

    Richie opens his eyes, his blue eyes staring at the cealing. He turns his head, sees Ash and Gary still unconscious, and smiles.

    RICHIE
    They're mine now.

    ***

    At the entrance to the Crystal Tower, Enchant leads the new trio outside, the sun shining brightly on them.

    ENCHANT
    (This is a most blessed day, indeed. You three...and Shi...will experience more joy than
    you've ever thought possible...and it's all just the beginning.)

    GARY
    Enchant, can I ask you a question?

    ENCHANT
    (Of course)

    GARY
    You are related to Jynx, right? If you evolve from Smoochum?

    ENCHANT
    (Jynx? It was believed they were all wiped out during the dark time. Have you
    seen one?)

    RICHIE
    They *are* somewhat rare, but yeah they are common enough where we come from.

    Ash activates his Dextette and looks up Jynx.

    DEXTETTE
    Jynx, the Humanshaped Pokemon. It is the evolved form of Smoochum. Jynx prefers to live in
    icy areas. Jynx speaks with a special language no other Human or Pokemon can understand.

    Enchant is silent for a moment.

    ENCHANT
    (It would appear our cousins did survive. So long apart...I wonder if were anything alike anymore)

    Team Rocket spot Enchant, and they gasp in marvel.

    JESSIE
    That Enchant makes all these other Enchants look like Tauros fodder. We must
    focus all of our Enchant seizing plans on this one.

    JAMES
    From Shi to fifteen Enchants to the Crystal Tower to this powerful looking Enchant.
    You know this can't end well.

    Pikachu and Sparky run up to Ash and Richie; the two had been off playing with Enchants in a field.

    ASH
    Wow, thank you Enchant. I feel totally...different now.

    GARY
    Yeah, it's like when I look at Ash and Richie I see them both differently.

    RICHIE
    Like I understand you both, and how you are feeling.

    ASH
    Wow, you both *did* know what I was thinking.

    ENCHANT
    (The joys of being bonded are varied and plentiful)

    RICHIE
    You know Enchant, I have *always* said that about bondage.

    Ash and Gary sweatdrop, Richie smiles and winks.

    ENCHANT
    (I do believe their is hope for you three to return to your proper locations
    much quicker than you realize.)

    ASH
    Huh? Really?

    ENCHANT
    (There are two ways off this island. One...lies at the end of the PsiBattles.
    If you were to win, you would discover a sub-island inhabited by Unowns.
    However, this is a long journey. The other...is a bit less conventional, but
    as you three are eternally bonded now, I see no reason it couldn't work.)

    RICHIE
    But Ash was getting himself psyched up for the PsiBattles.

    ASH
    And it looks like there's a lot more Pokemon to see.

    GARY
    Still, everyone back home must be worried about us.

    ASH
    Yeah, who knows what they think happoned. We can't let that go on.

    RICHIE
    Right, your mom must be really worried.

    ASH
    And Professor Oak and Mai! They all probably think were dead.

    RICHIE
    Well then it's settled. Mrs. Ketcham and Prof. Oak are two of my favorite friends,
    we can't let them go on all that time thinking that.

    GARY
    Thanks Richie, that's really thoughtful.

    Richie smiles innocently and takes a step closer to Gary.

    RICHIE
    You *will* introduce me to Mai, right? Put in a good word about my Pokemon
    Legendary findings and sightings?

    Gary crosses his arms and huffs, but then sees Richie's perfect smile and smirks.

    GARY
    Okay.

    ENCHANT
    (Well, if you want to enroll in the PsiBattles, take the path to your right. However,
    the quicker route home lies on the north road out of town.)

    ASH
    Awesome! Hey!

    Ash watches as a giant net crashes over Enchant and Shi, stunning them both.

    GARY
    Huh? Who did this?

    On cue, the Team Rocket music begins. Jessie is enthusiatic while James is rather nonplussed.

    JESSIE
    Prepair for trouble, that Enchant is coming with me!

    JAMES
    Make it double, it's much easier if you just agree.

    JESSIE
    To protect the world from devistation...

    JAMES
    To unite all people within our nation...

    JESSIE
    To denounce the evils of truth and love...

    JAMES
    To extend our reach to the stars above.

    JESSIE
    Jessie!!!

    JAMES
    James

    JESSIE
    Teeeeeam Rocket!!!! Blast off at the speed of light.

    JAMES
    This whole thing started because Jessie can't lose a fight.

    MEOWTH
    Meeeeowth, that's right!

    WOBBUFET
    Wobb-u-FFET!*
    (*If I wanted health food, I'd cook it in a wok!)

    CHIMECHO
    Chime Chime Chime....
    (*Chime Chime Chime.....)

    ASH/RICHIE/GARY
    Team Rocket!

    JESSIE
    You three are obviously trying to capture this Shi yourselves, don't be so shocked.

    ASH
    This isn't a Pokemon you can capture, Jessie! It's the leader of this whole community!

    RICHIE
    Now cut it off before we thunderbolt you.

    JESSIE
    Um...no!

    ENCHANT
    (Of all that is joyous and virtuous and true, comes a time when renewal starts a new...
    The limitless heart can gather strength, if one opens doors to expand it's length...
    The longer one waits to admit the truth, the further one strays from knowledge of youth...
    And knowledge shall set you apart, to contemplate the true love you've had from the start)

    Swirling energy surropunds Enchant then travels to Team Rocket, suddenly making them all freeze with wide eyes.

    JESSIE
    Cassidy...

    JAMES
    Butch...

    MEOWTH
    Da Boss...

    WOBBUFFET
    Wobbuffet...*
    (*Weezing...)

    ASH
    Pikachu!

    RICHIE
    Sparkie!

    ASH/RICHIE
    Thunderbolt!

    PIKACHU/SPARKY
    PIIIIKAAACHUUUU!

    The contemplative Team Rocket are electrocuted before they explode.

    TEAM ROCKET
    We're blasting off again!

    Gary and Richie remove the netting, and Ash nuzzles Shi.

    ASH
    Ha ha...you okay Shi?

    SHI
    Shiiiiii!*
    (Better than ever!)

    ENCHANT
    (Safe journies to you all, may your love guide you.)

    RICHIE
    Thank you, Enchant.

    GARY
    We'll never forget this.

    ASH
    Nope, never. Bye!

    They wave good-bye and walks down the steps, seeing Tommy walking up to them.

    ASH
    Tommy! Enchant bonded me to my boyfriends and told me about
    a quicker way I can get home!

    TOMMY
    Well my good news about finding a new tent can't beat that! That's so
    great!

    RICHIE
    Enchant says we have to take the northern path out of this town.

    TOMMY
    I know where that is. It leads to Dewdrop Forest, and then after that is
    Schuryville. I've only been there once, when I was young...but they have
    a great PsiGym, so I could be your guide!

    ASH
    Wow! That would be awesome! Thanx Tommy!

    Tommy smiles back at Ash. Richie and Gary exchange glances.

    RICHIE
    You know Tommy, we don't want to be a burden or anything.

    GARY
    Yeah, were all seasoned travelors, I'm sure we could find our way.

    TOMMY
    But you don't know any of the Ganymede Pokemon! Dewdrop Forest can
    be dangerous if you aren't properly prepaired!

    RICHIE
    Well....

    ASH
    Then it's settled! You're coming with us! Right Pikachu?

    PIKACHU
    Pika? Pika pika!*
    (*What? You suddenly care about what I think? I say feed him to a rabid Enchant!)

    Ash smiles and nuzzles Pikachu.

    ASH
    Pikachu agrees!

    Richie and Gary exchange glances again, then proceed to walk with Ash and Tommy, who clasp arms around each other's sholders and practically skip like new best friends.

    GARY
    (to Richie)
    Um...okay. Here I was thinking it would be just the three of us...testing out what it
    means to be bonded.

    RICHIE
    What is Ash doing? Why is this "Tommy" suddenly so important?

    SHI
    Shiiiiii*
    (Awwe, jealousy! So cute!)

    NARRATOR
    And so, with Tommy along for the ride yet again, our heroes find themselves on the way to
    Schuryville, but first they have to travel through the mysterious Dewdrop Forest. Are Richie
    and Gary's sudden worries justified, or has Ash truly met a new good friend? Stay tuned....

    Heh, good chapter there. I'm guessing the long wait was due to developing this chapter? ^_^ Anyway, besides a few grammar mistakes, good work, and keep it up! ^_^

    I love that Richie and Gary are getting along so well. Those two are very cute together. The one thing I would ask would be if we could get a better sense of what Tommy looks like. Just a few more details would be wonderful.

    We open in front of Enchantment City's largest resteraunt, Pauline's Eatery. Ash and Tommy both exit, smiling at each other as they run their full bellies.

    ASH
    Wow! The food was so delicious! I'm going to miss Enchantment City!

    TOMMY
    You know what the best part was? The free food for the Pokemon! That
    was quality grade.

    ASH
    Well Pikachu seemed to really like it, but Shi didn't seem to like it much.

    Richie and Gary exit, each holding bags of leftovers and Pokemon supplies. They see Ash and Tommy walking off in the near-distance, and they look at each other.

    GARY
    What's Ash doing?

    RICHIE
    It's like suddenly we don't exsist anymore? Did you notice he hardly spoke to us
    during dinner?

    GARY
    Well, from what I've always known about Ash...he always gets fixated on boys he has
    a crush on. Usually they have to be attractive, obviously, but they also have to impress
    Ash somehow.

    RICHIE
    Yeah! I guess you could say we both are at the top of his list when it comes to that. His friends
    hardly exsisted when we were around. But...why is that happening to us? We were just bonded
    with him for Goddess Hecate's sake!

    GARY
    Yeah. Okay...Tommy *is* cute I suppose.

    RICHIE
    Well OF COURSE he's cute! He has my hair, my eyes, your build, your smirk. I'd be tying him up
    in leather if circumstances were different and I wasn't attached now.

    Gary smiles and takes Richie's hand.

    GARY
    So about Tommy's coolness factor...

    RICHIE
    Obviously it's Tommy's knowledge of the Occult. I'm guessing Ash has forgotten I, too, am completely
    versed on the subject.

    GARY
    You are?

    RICHIE
    Books. They aren't just for ambiance.

    GARY
    So you think we have reason to be worried?

    RICHIE
    Should we be?

    GARY
    Well, were in a threesome relationship...but I don't know the rules for other people. Personally I'm
    all for giving up on others and just being with you two.

    Richie stops and smiles, tightening his grip on Gary's hand.

    RICHIE
    Me too.

    Shi appears behind them, obviously overhearing their conversation.

    SHI
    Shii ShiiShiiii!!*
    (*You are aware Enchant spoke of a fourth....)

    Richie lets go of Gary's hand and looks over to see Tommy now has his elbow playfully resting on Ash's sholder as they continue walking and laughing. His gloved fists clench, and Gary mimics his reaction.

    RICHIE
    Believe me...

    RICHIE/GARY
    Tommy is *not* going to be the fourth!

    CHAPTER NINE: DEWDROPS ON TOADSTOOLIOS

    ASH
    (voice)
    Dewdrops on Toadstoolios!

    ***

    We cut to the group venturing through Dewdrop Forest on a dirt path. Ash and Tommy are still bonding.

    NARRATOR
    After several hours of venturing through Dewdrop Forest, our heroes are
    beginning to notice the foliage is getting thicker, but it's no deterrant as they
    are on their way to Schuryville with hopes of getting home.

    ASH
    Wow, I haven't seen any Pokemon in this forest yet.

    TOMMY
    If we had the time, I could help you find them. They
    generally stay away from the Human paths.

    Ash smiles at Tommy.

    ASH
    Hey, that makes a lot of sense! You're pretty smart Tommy!

    TOMMY
    You're not so bad yourself. Hey, I have an idea...

    ASH
    Huh?

    TOMMY
    How's about you and me have a friendly Pokemon battle.

    Ash's eyes widen and he looks mesmerizedly happy.

    ASH
    Awesome! Let's do it!

    Tommy turns around and offers Richie and Gary a friendly, yet off grin.

    TOMMY
    Gary, Richie...one of you mind refereeing?

    Richie and Gary are both stunned, but eventually Richie nods.

    RICHIE
    Fine. This is a one on one battle.

    ASH
    Pikachu, I choose you!!!!

    Pikachu hops over and stands triumphant.

    PIKACHU
    Pika!!!*
    (It's been far too long since I've brutalized.)

    Tommy grins and throws his Pokeball.

    TOMMY
    Go! Witchipoo!

    A two-foot Pokemon, human shaped, with green skin, dressed in black including cape and pointy hat, and a long hook-nose appears. She cackles in a high pitch.

    WITCHIPOO
    HAAA HA HA HA HA! Witchipoo!*
    (*Double Double, toil and trouble!)

    Ash quickly removes his Dextette.

    DEXTETTE
    Witchipoo, the Wiccan Majic Pokemon. Witchipoo is the pre-evolved
    form of WhiteLight and DarkHeart. Witchipoos are known for their
    mischief-causing pranks, all of which involve magical spells.

    ASH
    Wow, that is an awesome Pokemon!

    TOMMY
    Thanks, now shall we begin?

    ASH
    Fine by me! Pikachu! Quick attack!

    TOMMY
    Witchipoo! Cauldron!

    Witchipoo creates a lauge black cauldron and tips it over, causing Pikachu to fly into it, knocking itself back with a large thump.

    TOMMY
    Witchipoo, levitate!

    Witchipoo cackles loudly and causes Pikachu to fly into the air uncontrollably.

    ASH
    Come *on* Pikachu! Try using Thunderbolt!

    PIKACHU
    PikaCHUUUUUU!!!!!!*
    (*ThunderBOOOOLT!)

    TOMMY
    Witchipoo, Spellcast!

    Witchipoo cackles and clasps it's hands together, then releases a wave of magic just as Thunderbolt hits it, electrocuting it instantly. Pikachu gets hit by the Spellcast, and is instantly knocked out.

    RICHIE
    Both Pokemon are unable to battle. It appears we have a tie?

    Ash begins running forward. It appears he's running to Pikachu.

    ASH
    Great job Pikachu, take a rest.

    Ash, however, doesn't stop walking and proceeds to go right up to Tommy.

    ASH
    Wow, you are a really great trainer Tommy! Your Witchipoo is awesome!

    TOMMY
    Well, Witchipoo was my first Pokemon. We've been together from the start.

    ASH
    Just like me and Pikachu, right buddy?

    Ash doesn't look back at Pikachu, who is still half-passed out on the ground.

    PIKACHU
    Piiiika...*
    (Whatever you say....)

    Gary suddenly steps forward.

    GARY
    Well, should we continue on?

    RICHIE
    Right, we don't want to spend the entire day in a forest.

    Tommy looks over to the other two for a moment with an unreadable expression, then smiles back to Ash.

    TOMMY
    Your boyfriends are right, Ash. We shouldn't hold everyone up.

    Ash nods, a bit let down.

    ASH
    Your right Tommy, we shouldn't. Okay, let's keep going!

    RICHIE
    Hold on a second.

    Everyone stops and looks at Richie, who offers Tommy a polite smile.

    RICHIE
    Tommy, if you could be so kind as to allow us a moment?

    Tommy seems completely perplexed, but eventually nods and takes a few steps away. Ash walks up to Richie and Gary.

    ASH
    What is it?

    GARY
    Ash, what's the deal?

    ASH
    Huh?

    RICHIE
    It's great that you've made a new friend, but do you have to completely ignore us?

    ASH
    What would make you say something like that?

    GARY
    Because we see how you act around him.

    ASH
    Well I really like Tommy. He's awesome and he understands me.

    Richie shrugs and offers Ash an incredulous face.

    RICHIE
    You hardly know him! Doesn't the fact that we were just bonded mean anything to you?

    Ash thinks a moment, then gasps.

    ASH
    You two...are jealous because Tommy and I are going to get together, right?

    Gary and Richie both freeze solid, not believing what Ash just said.

    GARY
    How could you...? You changed your mind about us that quickly?

    ASH
    No, it sounds like you two are changing your minds about me. Whenever I meet
    a cute guy who is into me, we have fun and sleep together. It's never been an issue
    for me, and *most* of my friends learned to accept it, even Misty and Brock.

    RICHIE
    You've been with other men?

    ASH
    Lots. Haven't you?

    RICHIE
    Sure....uh, besides you, I've been with seven others.

    GARY
    I....I've been with five others. What about you Ash?

    Ash is silent for a moment.

    ASH
    Since the beginning of my journey? I've been with over thirty guys.

    Gary and Richie both look down to the ground, shocked and saddened.

    RICHIE
    But Gary and I are still your *guys*, right? The ones you loved the entire time?

    Ash begins looking angry.

    ASH
    You both *were*.

    Ash suddenly turns around and runs to Tommy's arms, the two bear-hugging as Ash
    weeps into his sholder.

    ASH
    (sobbing)
    Let's go...Get me away from them. Come on Pikachu!

    Pikachu and Sparkie take several steps closer to each other, not wanting to part.

    ASH
    Come on Pikachu!

    Pikachu looks back at Ash sadly, and with tears begins running to him, leaving Sparky to sadly call out after him.

    SPARKY
    Piiika!*
    (No! Don't leave me again!)

    Tommy leads Ash away, leaving a very shocked Richie and Gary to simply stare at each other.

    ***

    Several yards away, Team Rocket sits quietly behind some bushes. They had observed the entire ordeal.

    JESSIE
    Well well well...there seems to be trouble on the honeymoon.

    While Jessie seems sadistically pleased by the scene she just saw, James' face seems to echo that of Richie and Gary's; anger and disbelief.

    JAMES
    It's preposterous! How could the twerp *possibly* throw away those
    two after all they've been through? It's not just love it's true love!

    MEOWTH
    Jimmy, you seem kinda aggitated.

    JESSIE
    Yeah, if anything *these* are the moments that make life worth living!

    James frowns.

    JAMES
    I'm telling you, something here is wrong.

    JESSIE
    Either way, we are using this to our advantage.

    MEOWTH
    How so?

    JESSIE
    Divided numbers makes the chances greater of us capturing
    that Shi once and for all!

    JAMES
    Again with capturing Shi? Haven't you learned yet that particular Pokemon
    just isn't capturable?

    JESSIE
    And haven't *you* learned yet that if I had that Shi in my posession I would be
    winning contests in no time!

    JAMES
    But...

    JESSIE
    Enough! Now come on, I have the perfect idea...Meowth, your tail is hitting me.

    Meowth, who is holding his tail, shakes his head innocently.

    MEOWTH
    Ain't me.

    JESSIE
    Huh?

    Jessie looks down and sees the *cutest* little Mushroom-shaped pokemon happily bumping
    it's head into Jessie's leg. The head of the mushroom is yellow with red spots, and it's eyes
    and mouth are orange. Jessie immediately freaks out and shrieks with terror.

    JESSIE
    AAAAIAIAIAAIIIIIGGGGHHHH!!!!! GET AWAY!!!!!!!

    Jessie picks up the Pokemon and throws it with all her might. It goes soaring into the air, and pelts Gary in the back of the head, then lands to the ground with a thump.

    GARY
    Aaaah!!! What was...hey, look at that?

    Richie turns around and sees the cute mushroom Pokemon. He retrieves his Pokedex.

    RICHIE
    What is that?

    DEXTER
    Toadstoolio, the Mushroom Pixie Pokemon. Toadstoolio, while naturally born in dark, damp areas, are
    known for being natural performers and talented musicians.

    GARY
    Hey Toadstoolio, how ya doin' buddy?

    TOADSTOOLIO
    To-to-tooooo.....*
    (So weak...darkness....Is this the end of Toadstoolio....*hack* *sniff*)

    Gary and Richie instantly take an instant liking to the overly melodramatic Pokemon despite their shocked nature. Gary picks it up.

    GARY
    Would you like to join us lil buddy?

    Toadstoolio looks down and dramatically acts as if it's going to jump to it's death. Instead, it jumps right onto one of Gary's empty Pokeballs and gets sucked right in.

    RICHIE
    Huh?

    Within seconds, it's 'caught' into the ball.

    GARY
    I have a feeling that Pokemon was looking for a Human trainer.

    RICHIE
    Gary...do you really think Ash meant what he said?

    Gary looks down, the momentary distraction now completely gone from his face.

    GARY
    He couldn't have meant everything he said. Come on, you think he's really been with
    that many guys?

    RICHIE
    Sure. He's naive when it comes to love and romance, but Ash is no virgin. To him sex is simply
    part of getting to know certain friends he "likes" even if he didn't always realize he was gay.

    GARY
    What about how we were the ones he loved?

    RICHIE
    Maybe he's just upset about something and said all that to be alone.

    GARY
    Yeah, be alone with Tommy.

    RICHIE
    Yeah, I thought he was our friend. He's the reason we got bonded to begin with!

    GARY
    Well, we can't just stand here forever. We shouldn't allow them to get too far away.

    RICHIE
    You're right!

    ***

    Meanwhile, much further up the path, Shi is constantly swirling around Ash in a panic.

    SHI
    Shiiiiii*
    (Ash stop it! You can't do this!)

    Ash angrily swats at Shi.

    ASH
    Stop it Shi! Go with Gary and Richie if you *love* them so much!

    SHI
    SHIII SHI SHIIIII*
    (Is your mouth not attached to your brain right now? Gah!!!!!
    I will not ALLOW this to happen!)

    Tommy can sense why Shi is so upset, and he sighs.

    ASH
    Shi! I can make my own choices!

    Tommy stops and reaches into his backpack and begins fumbling around.

    TOMMY
    Ash, I want this to be my very first gift to you.

    ASH
    Huh?

    Tommy withdraws a sparkly metal Pokeball with bedazzled jewels all over it.

    TOMMY
    It's a Universal Psychic Ball. It will trap any psychic Pokemon with ease.

    Ash takes it, smiles, and easily bops Shi with it, sucking the mortified Pokemon inside. Pikachu seems rather confused by Ash's nonchalant behavior.

    PIKACHU
    Pika?*
    (Since when did Ash grow a pair)

    ASH
    Awesome! Thanx Tommy!

    TOMMY
    Anything for you.

    Ash's face brightens even more and he grabs Tommy's hand.

    ASH
    Aha! Let's gooo!

    The two take off together, in brighter spirits.

    ***

    Richie watches Sparky walk quietly by himself, and he knows to let him be. He looks over to Gary, and sees Gary is sullen and speaking under his breath.

    RICHIE
    Huh?

    GARY
    Oh. Just thinking of what I'd do if I could battle this Tommy.

    Richie thinks a moment, then grabs Gary's hand and stops quickly, looking up into his eyes.

    RICHIE
    That's a good idea. Defeating the guy in front of Ash will prove to him who the real winners are.

    The two begin walking faster.

    ***

    Ash and Tommy exit Dewdrop Forest, and Ash is amazed to see Schuryville.

    ASH
    Whoa, we're here already?

    TOMMY
    Yep. And good news! My family just so happens to be visiting from Cherry Bust Villiage!

    ASH
    Really?

    TOMMY
    Yep! They got a hotel room and everything! I bet they'll be so happy to meet you!

    ASH
    Awesome! I bet they're really nice like you! Ha ha!

    PIKACHU
    Piiika*
    (Eeeeeh. *Another* romping adventure of Meet the Parents? Like every other time I'll have to be extra cuddly and cute. Barf.)

    TOMMY
    Come on! I have no idea where the hotel is, but it can't be that far away.

    ***

    At the Schuryville Comfy Hotel, A very mystifying woman in elegant yet other-worldly fashions looks out the window.

    WOMAN
    MIAS, I sense they are drawing near.

    A man, also looking rather mystical in nature, appears behind her and places his hand on her sholder. While not responding to the gesture, she does not ignore it either.

    MIAS
    Excellent. He is old enough to carry on the family legacy after all.

    WOMAN
    I never doubted he would. He was always the most devious of our children.

    MIAS
    You speak of it so ugly. My darling Elnora, is something burdening you?

    Elnora remains cool.

    ELNORA
    Why should anything burden me when everything is as it should be?

    MIAS
    I pray to the Gods and Goddesses that this boy doesn't pick
    up on your recent mood swings, *dear wife*

    ELNORA
    I too pray you didn't set Tommy up to outreach his goals. I sense
    power is heading for our lives...I cannot determine in what shape
    or form it will reveal itself, but all the same the tides of change
    have risen.

    MIAS
    I will reflect what you've said in meditation...later...but for now we
    must be there for our son.

    ELNORA
    Of course.

    A sudden knock at the door causes both to look over in silence. Mias concentrates on the door and waves his hand in the air majestically. Suddenly, the door unlocks.

    MIAS
    The door is open.

    Tommy and Ash enter.

    TOMMY
    Ash, I'd like you to meet my parents; Mias and Elnora. Mom and dad,
    this is Ash Ketcham. My new boyfriend.

    Ash smiles gleefully and grabs Tommy's hand tighter.

    MIAS
    Hello Ash. I could sense my son was in a very very good mood when I psychically
    informed him that my wife and I would be in Schuryville on vacation.

    ELNORA
    Obviously this calls for a celebration.

    ASH
    That's great! I really do think I love your son. He's been there for me ever since
    my ex-boyfriends turned psycho and dumped me. That was the darkest point in
    my life, but he helped me pull through it with patience and true love, and over time
    I learned to realize he was truly the love of my life.

    Tommy kisses Ash on the cheak.

    TOMMY
    I do love you, Ash.

    Ash turns to Tommy and gasps.

    ASH
    I love you too! Now and forever!

    Ash leans in and gives Tommy their very first steamy kiss. Mias and Elnora look at each other with a grin. Suddenly there is a knock at the door and everyone turns to it. From the other side a female voice can be heard.

    JESSIE
    (voice)
    Housekeeping!!!!

    MIAS
    We didn't order that!.

    JAMES
    (girly voice)
    But you WILL!!!! Were a psychic hotel staff, obviously!

    MEOWTH
    (voice)
    Now open up!

    Tommy walks over and opens the door slowly. The Team Rocket music begins. Jessie, James and Meowth are both dressed in French Maid Uniforms.

    JESSIE
    Preeeepair for LUXURY like you've never deserved...

    JAMES
    Make it double Full Goose-Down Feather Pillows, anything else is absurd.

    Mias interrupts them.

    MIAS
    What is it? We are in the middle of something very important!

    Jessie immediately begins feather dusting a lamp.

    JESSIE
    Of course, sir! We'll just quickly do our job and be on our way!

    James begins cleaning a bookshelf, and can plainly see Ash's glossed over gazing at Tommy.

    JAMES
    Hmmmm.

    Tommy, obviously annoyed by the interruption, simply looks over to Ash.

    TOMMY
    Ash, you know...since my parents *are* here and everything...and since
    we are truly in love...perhaps we could formalize it.

    ASH
    Huh?

    JAMES
    Huh?

    MIAS
    Did you say something, "Miss"?

    JAMES
    Who me?!? (girly voice) Hahahaha, no!

    James continues cleaning but remains fizated on Ash and Tommy.

    ASH
    Tommy.......are you asking me to marry you?

    TOMMY
    If you'll have me.

    JAMES
    WHAAAAAAT??!?!!?

    Jessie and Meowth suddenly freeze when James freaks out.

    JAMES
    I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON HERE, BUT TEAM ROCKET HAS
    OFFICIALLY MADE *YOU* OUR ENEMIES!

    JESSIE
    ....we have?

    James, with burning fire in his eyes, forcibly grabs Jessie and snaps for the Team Rocket music.

    JAMES
    Come on!

    JESSIE
    Oh...eh, .....er......Prepair for trouble since James has obviously blown a fuse.

    JAMES
    MAKE IT DOUBLE SINCE THIS EVIL LITTLE TWERP IS GOING TO LOSE!

    JESSIE
    To protect the world from devistation!

    JAMES
    To set things right and teach you a lesson.

    JESSIE
    To denounce the evils of truth and love!

    JAMES
    To extend the notion that Ash fits Gary and Richie like a glove.

    JESSIE
    Jessie!

    JAMES
    James

    They switch into their normal Team Rocket uniforms. Jessie is a bit peturbed looking while James is smooth and holding a rose to his face.

    JESSIE
    Team Rocket, interrupting dangerous, er, marriage proposals at the speed of light!

    JAMES
    So surrender Ash back over or prepair to fight, fight, FIGHT!

    Meowth does a pose, still in the French Maid Uniform.

    MEOWTH
    Meeowth, that's right.

    Wobbuffet pops out of it's Pokeball and raises it's arms into the air emphatically.

    WOBBUFFET
    Wobbuffeeeeet!*
    (*Hakuna Matada, my Ohanaaaaaaa!!!!)

    Chimecho floats down serenely.

    CHIMECHO
    Chime Chime CHIME....*
    (*Chime Chime CHIME....)

    TOMMY
    Team Rocket!

    ASH
    Hey!!! Stay away from my boyfriend! I'm guessing you want Pikachu, take it....just leave.

    PIKACHU
    Pika?!?*
    (What the ****?!?)

    Jessie and James are both speechless.

    MEOWTH
    Whaaaaa?!? Your givin it to us?

    ASH
    Whatever. Just don't spoil what is the best moment of my life so far.

    Ash turns to Tommy, and smiles happily at him.

    TOMMY
    Words can't describe how much I love you right now.

    ASH
    The answer is yes Tommy! I *will*!

    JAMES
    Nooo! Cacnea, I choose you!

    Cacnea emerges and happily hugs James.

    CACNEA
    Cacnea!*
    (Hi!!!!)

    JESSIE
    I hate to say this, but the twerp is creeping *me* out! So gooooo Seviper!

    Seviper emerges.

    SEVIPER
    Sssssssssseviperrrrrrr*
    (Jessie, I'm anorexic at this point. My body has little fat to feed from by the way, so....)

    MIAS
    Go, Darkheart!

    Darkheart, a Pokemon that resembles an older Witchipoo but with a dark flowing robe and red beady eyes.

    DARKHEART
    Daaaaarrrk.*
    (*The Power of the Night is in me)

    ELNORA
    Go, Whitelight!

    Whitelight emerges, also looking like an older variant of Witchipoo except it has bluish skin, and a simple white
    dress. White hair and blue eyes also distinguish it from Darkheart.

    WHITELIGHT
    'ightlighhhhhhhh....*
    (*I've put a spell on you, and now your mine...)

    JAMES
    Cacnea, use needle arm!

    JESSIE
    Seviper, use poison sting!

    MIAS
    Darkheart, use Torment!

    ELNORA
    Whitelight, use Elemental Hurricane!

    Darkheart shoots black sparkly energy at Cacnea and Seviper, who fly backwards into Jessie and James...all of whome feel sudden
    pain by the attack. Whitelight causes a tornado to appear over Team Rocket, and they are sucked inside and shot out the top, through the roof, and into the air.

    JESSIE
    JAMES! We were supposed to find Shi! What's gotten into you!

    JAMES
    This isn't over! I will not stop till we figure out what's happoned to the twerp!

    MEOWTH
    Yeah, he can't just GIVE us his Pikachu!

    JAMES
    I will devise the perfect plan, you wait and see!

    MEOWTH
    One request...

    JAMES
    Sure.

    JESSIE/MEOWTH
    Can you wait till we're finished blasting off again?

    ***

    Gary and Richie are walking through Schuryville, attempting to spot Ash.

    RICHIE
    They must be around here somewhere.

    Happy flies down to Richie and begins fluttering wildly.

    HAPPY
    Butterfrrreeeee!!!!*
    (Found him, like, totally over there! Yayness! Teehee!)

    RICHIE
    I think Happy found him!

    GARY
    Come on!

    The two take off in quick pursuit, and before too long they see Ash and Tommy walking lovingly down the sidewalk.

    GARY
    Ashy!!!!

    RICHIIE
    Ash! We found you.

    Ash sees them, and instinctively tenses up and places his free arm around Tommy's sholder.

    ASH
    After all this time I would have expected you two to understand.

    RICHIE
    After all what time? We got into *a fight* a couple of hours ago! And it happens Ash...
    lovers do sometimes get into quarrels but it doesn't mean we don't love you...

    GARY
    Completely, with all our hearts.

    Ash glosses over what they say with a finger poited at them.

    ASH
    In the time you've been off being together, I've managed to move on and have truly
    met the one true love of my life, Tommy.

    RICHIE
    Do you even *know* his last name?

    TOMMY
    Does he even know yours?

    Richie gasps, fire now in his eyes as he stares through Tommy.

    RICHIE
    It's just Richie! Like Madonna you fraud!

    Ash grits his teeth.

    ASH
    Leave Tommy alone! You and Gary are jerks! I don't ever want to see you
    again! Good bye!

    GARY
    No!!!

    Ash nods.

    ASH
    Tommy has proposed to me and I've said yes. So frankly I think you two can do
    this whole island a favor and head back to where you come from.

    And with that, Ash is walking away, Tommy in tow with his arm around Ash's back defensively.

    Richie and Gary are practically too stunned to move.

    GARY
    Ash is getting married?

    RICHIE
    And he hates us?

    The two lower their heads, both feeling tremendous sadness inside. Toadstoolio pops out of Gary's Pokeball and does a
    maudlin prose, really overdramatifying the situation with woeful gestures.

    TOADSTOOLIO
    Toadstoooooooo Stooolio*
    (Once I have plucked the rose, it's leaved must wither...it's petals must die...it's...)

    Gary grabs the Pokeball and monotonely calls Toadstoolio back.

    NARRATOR
    And so our heroes find they are no longer a complete unit anymore. Has Gary and Richie lost
    their Ash forever? Stay tuned....

    This story really is fantastic. The shpping material is great, but what really gets me is the imagination. This is a incredible world you've created. I kind of like the script/traditional hybrid, since it actually simplifies things so nobody has to muck about with any verbs or nouns or anything of that sort.

    Is this gonna be updated at all? I'd really like to see it continue.

    We open on Gary and Richie, sitting solemnly at an outdoor table of a small cafe in Schuryville. Richie is simply
    staring at his green tea while Gary rests his head on his hand, while his elbow is propped on the table.

    NARRATOR
    After Ash bid both Richie and Gary a rather hasty and final good bye, the two
    find themselves unable to process this startling change of events.

    GARY
    It just doesn't make any sense.

    RICHIE
    No it doesn't. How can Ash meet someone and fall in love so seriously that
    he would get married in just a few days?

    GARY
    I hate to say it, but it does happen.

    RICHIE
    But Ash? I mean...after everything the three of us have been through, I can't
    seriously think Ash is thinking clearly.

    GARY
    He sounded pretty clear.

    RICHIE
    This whole island is deeply rooted in the occult, I'm sure something is making
    Ash say those things...maybe even a Pokemon.

    Gary sits up and looks at Richie with new interest.

    GARY
    Ya think?

    RICHIE
    Yes. Now if only there was a way to prove it.

    GARY
    Then we could find a way to stop it.

    RICHIE
    Maybe it's a love potion...or enchant spell. We saw both back in Enchantment City.

    GARY
    It could be many things. Hmmm.

    Richie's eyes widen and he stands.

    RICHIE
    I think it's time we visit the nearest library.

    Meanwhile, at the Schuryville Wedding Chapel, a monumentous undertaking is occuring as Elnora oversees the
    elaborately beautiful wedding decorations.

    ELNORA
    I want those Queen Anne Chandeliers placed evenly over the pews. The Rose Bushes shall be set near the alter.

    Ash walks into the chapel, and looks around with awe.

    ASH
    Aaaahhh.....wow! This place looks great, Elnora!

    Elnora turns and smiles serenely at Ash.

    ELNORA
    Hello, my child. How is the fitting?

    ASH
    Well...okay. But...I'm not too sure about wearing a wedding dress.

    ELNORA
    I thought Thomas explained everything. It's tradition in our family. Every male's bride must wear the
    Oath of Commitment Dress, it's...well, think of it as a good luck charm for your happy marriage.

    ASH
    Right, but...

    Elnora leans down and winks at Ash.

    ELNORA
    Now, now, I understand, my child. I, too, remember thinking 'Ugh! What a hideously outdated-looking
    dress!' when I was your age. But at the end of the day, it's who you're marrying that's important, not what you're
    wearing.

    ASH
    But I'm a boy!

    ELNORA
    Well Ash Ketcham, I'm shocked! You seem so open-minded! That is the most sexist thing I've heard
    since my grandfather was alive! Now I don't know what it's like where you come from, but on this island
    people can wear whatever they darn well choose to...with the exception to yourself because on your
    wedding day you WILL be wearing the ritualistic dress. Comprehend?

    ASH
    Yes, ma'am.

    ELNORA
    This wedding shall go down in history! It will be so glorious and monumentous that none shall compare!

    CHAPTER TEN: I NOW PRONOUNCE YOU...

    ASH
    (voice)
    I Now Pronounce You...

    ***

    At the Schuryville Library, Richie and Gary enter to find an expansively large, sprawling library decorated in
    stylistic earth tones. Richie, with his mouth slightly ajar, looks around the impressive layout with awe.

    RICHIE
    I have never seen a library this huge. I could spend...weeks here.

    GARY
    Looks like a standard library to me. A cemetary full of dead people's thoughts.

    Richie smirks at Gary and sticks his tongue out at him.

    RICHIE
    Come on.

    The two find the Information desk, and an elderly lady smiles at them.

    VELMA
    Hello, I'm Velma, head librarian. And I don't believe I've ever seen you two before...

    GARY
    We're pretty new around these parts. We came looking for information.

    VELMA
    Well then, as this is the Information Desk, I think you may be in luck.

    RICHIE
    We are looking for information on love spells, enchantment potions, things of that sort.

    Velma's eyes narrow.

    VELMA
    You'll find I don't take kindly to people who would use such spells for their own advantage. If
    you two think you can use such magics to easily tag-team girls, you'll find the punishment laws
    are quite severe. Not everyone on this Island is as free-thinking as those extremests from
    Enchantment City, you know. Love spells can devastate a person's entire soul, chi, and spirit...permenantly.
    Even if a spell is broken, most often a person's entire essence will be dramatically altered for the remainder
    of their days.

    Richie's eyes sadden and Gary looks shocked. Velma sees this, grins and haughtily shakes her head.

    VELMA
    I see that once again Velma the Vivacious has talked sense into troubled gang-banging teenagers.

    Richie isn't listening to her at this point, and turns around and buries his head into Gary's chest, trying not to cry.
    Gary sadly places his arm around Richie's waiste, and looks hopelessly at Velma.

    GARY
    So you're saying there's nothing we can do?

    Velma's smirk subsides and she raises a curious eyebrow at the two.

    VELMA
    Huh?

    ***

    Near the Chapel, Ash is sitting near a stream, watching Magikarp hop out of the water and Splash randomly.
    Tommy walks up to him and sits next to him.

    TOMMY
    What are you thinking about?

    Ash smiles and grabs Tommy's hand.

    ASH
    Just my childhood. It's strange how badly I wanted to be a Pokemon Master, but now that seems so childish.
    I keep thinking about my Pokemon back home, and I just wish I could release them all. Let them find love also.

    TOMMY
    That is so selfless of you! But really Ash, I know the wedding is exciting and all, but life will go on after.
    You can still train Pokemon with my blessing! Heck, maybe we can enter the PsiBattles together!

    Ash suddenly stands and raises his fist into the air melodramatically.

    ASH
    Absolutely not!

    TOMMY
    Huh?

    Ash sits back down.

    ASH
    Well, a part of me has always known that keeping a man happy means devoting your life to finding ways to make
    your relationship, your family, and your home better.

    Tommy, confused, shakes his head uncertainly.

    TOMMY
    You wanna be a homemaker?

    ASH
    Not only do I want to be the BEST homemaker, I want to make you proud of me.

    TOMMY
    But...I thought you loved Pokemon battling? I thought that's why we clicked?

    ASH
    Well, Pokemon are cute, but training can be dangerous. I think after everything I've been through these
    past several years, I'm ready to settle down. My father left my mother because she is really lousy when it
    comes to house work. I want to learn from her mistakes and please you in every way.

    TOMMY
    But....you *love* your Pokemon. Certainly that will never change.

    ASH
    I love you. There's no room for anyone or anything else, but you.

    Ash begins kissing a shocked Tommy, who eventually gives in and begins making out.

    In the near-distance, hiding in a bush, is Team Rocket, who are spying. James looks outraged.

    JAMES
    That charlotan! He will rue the day he crossed Team Rocket.

    JESSIE
    Crossed you, you mean. Meowth and I could care less.

    JAMES
    That may be so, but you two *will* help me stop this insanity.

    JESSIE
    I don't know, I think Team Rocket's resources would be better suited for exotic Pokemon
    nabbing. Breaking up a teenage romance? Hardly a blip on my radar.

    MEOWTH
    Yeah, besides dey make a cute couple.

    James looks at Meowth with fire in his eyes.

    JAMES
    Are you COMPLETELY out of it? We all know who the twerp really loves, and we may be lowly
    criminals but that's not stopping me from doing what's right.

    JESSIE
    Pipe down. You know how men are at that age. They love you one minute, gone the next. He
    was probably ready to ditch the other two twerps anyways and Tommy-boy was just at the right
    place, right time. I've even used that old trick a time or two myself.

    James silently fumes, until his intensity reaches a boiling point and he stands.

    JAMES
    Fine then! If you two want to sit back and be pathetic, self-absorbed cowards, be my guest!

    James storms away. Jessie nor Meowth look particularly moved by his speech.

    JESSIE
    I wonder why James cares so much? Could he have a soft spot for the twerp after all?

    MEOWTH
    Could be. He did want us to return Pikachu from da Boss, after all.

    JESSIE
    Well, with the twerp getting married this *will* be a turning point for Team Rocket.

    MEOWTH
    True, we've been following da Twoips so long that I'm not sure where we'd go....or would
    we end up staying in Schuryville foreva?

    JESSIE
    Oh no, absolutely not. Personally I feel I've been anchored to that twerp and his plethora of
    dimwitted friends long enough. Kanto, the Orange Islands, Johto, Hoenn, now Ganymede, it's
    time I followed my own instincts and led us myself! With my glamorous charm people will be
    giving us Pokemon as gifts!

    MEOWTH
    Hey! You've just given me an idea!

    JESSIE
    I did?

    MEOWTH
    I think I've figured out a way you, me, and James can all reach an agreement. And you and I will
    make out like bandits! And the best part is James will think we're doing it to help him!

    JESSIE
    Oooh, do tell!

    ***

    In the back of the Schuryville Library, sitting in Velma's office is Richie and Gary. Velma's office
    is quite loud and chaotically decorated for a librarian of Velma's age and demeanor. She is sitting at her
    desk, looking rather interested while the two explain to her their story.

    RICHIE
    ...And that's why we came here, because we are desperate.

    GARY
    This whole island is just spooky, and then you tell us Ash may be psychologically scarred for life.

    Velma smiles meekly and raises her hands.

    VELMA
    Well, I was mostly trying to scare you. Really, it *would* depend on the spell and other circumstances.
    Most teenagers today would simply take what I say at face value and not "waste time" finding out the
    entire truth themselves.

    RICHIE
    So can you help us?

    VELMA
    My boy, there are hundreds and hundreds of unique spells that could make someone fall in love.

    GARY
    We don't have time to research, there getting *married* soon!

    VELMA
    Listen, I feel for you boys. While it is damned strange to see someone leave their beloved ones after
    Enchant does his love bond wammy....er, whatever it's called.....but it can happen. I mean, if you're not
    destined to be with someone, it's just not meant to be.

    RICHIE
    But it *is* meant to be. We've come to learn that our souls have been intertwined for countless lifetimes.

    GARY
    Let's not get into *that*. Listen Velma, we've known Ash a long, long time....I'm talking in *this* lifetime,
    by the way, and I promise you he is not the type of person to do this. We need help.

    Velma nods.

    VELMA
    I can see the pain in both of your eyes, I know you both are honest. I know someone who can help you.
    A good friend of mine who has devoted his life to finding better ways to police psychic abuse. If you'll excuse
    me, I'll contact him right away.

    Velma spins around in her swivel chair and turns on her communications device. Moments later a man's face
    appears on the screen. No older than eighteen, he has spiky blonde hair and cobalt blue eyes. The tips of his spikes
    have multi-colored ends, including blue, green, violet, aqua, and neon green. He smiles.

    VELMA
    Nyla!

    NYLA
    Velma, always a pleasure. How's the weather out in Schuryville?

    VELMA
    A little dry for my tastes, but this isn't a social call, boy. I have two boys here who would like to
    report psychic abuse.

    NYLA
    Understood. I'll be there shortly. Nyla out.

    Velma spins around and smiles.

    VELMA
    Well you heard the man. We'll get to the bottom of this in no time.

    GARY
    But he asked how the weather was in Schuryville. Where does he live?

    VELMA
    He comes from a small, artistic community just south of the Vine Ripe Gardens called Amity Meadows.

    RICHIE
    I've never heard of that place. Where is it?

    VELMA
    On foot, it would take many, many months to reach. From where we are, it's almost on the other side of the
    island.

    GARY
    How can he help us if he's so far away?

    Suddenly, a shimmering, beautiful beam sparkles right in front of Gary's face. Velma's widen.

    VELMA
    Jump away!

    Gary, however, seems too shocked and mystified by what he sees to register the words. Richie is quickly
    on his feet and pushes Gary out of the way before the beam grows wider and distorts the space around it. A bright
    flash of light emerges and suddenly Nyla and his Pokemon are standing where Gary had been. Nyla is lanky, wearing
    an aqua and neon-green swirled outfit. His Pokemon somewhat resembles a peacock, each back feather a slightly different
    color.

    VELMA
    Sorry boys! I forgot to warn you that Colorock's Teleport is a bit more intense than most Teleports.

    Richie and Gary stand.

    NYLA
    And more potentially dangerous. I'm sorry about that. I only use it's Teleport in emergencies, but
    I was aiming for *outside* the library.

    Nyla looks at his Colorock sternly, and the Pokemon sighs with what appears to be another failed
    attempt.

    Gary and Richie both whip out their Pokedexs'.

    DEXTER
    Colorock, the Rainbow Splash Pokemon. Colorock is the pre-evolved form of Rainbella, and many
    believe it to be closely related to Ho-oh. Each of Colorock's tailfeathers has both a unique color and
    psychic power which corelates to that color. If Colorock loses a feather, it will forever be unable to see
    that color again. Removing all tailfeathers will cause blindness.

    RICHIE
    Whoa, cool Pokemon!

    GARY
    Yeah! My name's Gary and this is Richie.

    NYLA
    Hi! I'm Nyla, and I am the co-founder of the Psychic Abuse Foundation, an organization
    which has swept the entire island in the last three years, and already we've made leaps
    and bounds in progress. We research all forms of psychic manipulation, and ways to
    stop it. We hold counseling sessions, and our psychiatrists are always on the look-out
    for new ways to help people recover. And finally, we are researching new ways to track
    and stop people who harm or coerce others using magic, psychic abilities or a Pokemon's
    magic or psychic abilities.

    GARY
    Wow! That's pretty impressive!

    RICHIE
    You're not much older than us, and you've accomplished so much!

    NYLA
    When I was ten, a bully who just happoned to be a warlock used to say a little spell
    every day so I would give him my lunch money. I starved for almost a year in school,
    to ashamed to tell my father. Well, eventually I stood up for myself and now I stand up
    for everyone who is a victim.

    RICHIE
    Well, hopefully you can help us because we're running out of time!

    GARY
    If Ash marries that creep Tommy it'll be our fault because we didn't stop him in time!

    Nyla is silent for a moment.

    NYLA
    ...marries...Tommy? You wouldn't be talking about the latest Knoll wedding, would you?

    Richie and Gary look at each other in confusion, and Velma stands up and stomps her foot.

    VELMA
    Of course! I should have put two and two together! A Knoll wedding is taking place, and sure
    enough a scorned lover isn't too far behind, or in this case lovers.

    NYLA
    Well guys, consider yourselves lucky. I haven't even interviewed you yet and we've
    already identified the type of abuse and the abuser! And we already have operatives
    to be stationed at that wedding. We're hoping to chart the specifics of the unique Knoll
    Family Magics...

    RICHIE
    We have?!?

    GARY
    That's great!

    NYLA
    Well you see....that's the thing. We were hoping to CHART the specifics. We...and nobody I've
    ever heard of....has been able to successfully break the Knoll Family Magics. Since the founding
    of this island, and probably thousands of years before that, the Knoll lineage all possess a very unique
    magical ability that, in essence, bonds a person who is already in love with another...to him or herself.

    RICHIE
    Are you serious.

    NYLA
    Unfortunately for you, I am. There are stories dating back all the way to the formation of this island; stories
    of scorned people who tried to win back their loved ones using all sorts of various methods. All failed in the end.
    But I am confident that my teams of psychics, scientists and parapsychologists will be able to crack their code once
    and for all!

    RICHIE
    We can't let this wedding happen!

    GARY
    No!

    NYLA
    Well, with any luck our devices can pinpoint the exact frequency of their magic, then I can hopefully
    arrest the entire family. With so many family members in one place, I'm sure I can.

    GARY
    I hope so.

    NYLA
    Of course, I'm getting ahead of myself. First off, I need to get a lot of information.

    RICHIE
    That's fine, because we have a lot to tell.

    ***

    Later that evening, Ash is lying in bed with an exhausted Tommy, who is ready to fall asleep.

    TOMMY
    Pleasant dreams.

    ASH
    Good night.

    Ash's eyes close, and within moments he finds himself in Kanto, a young trainer. Misty and Brock are walking
    with him down a dirt path. A Murkrow can be heard in the distance.

    BROCK
    Well Ash, tomorrow is the big day!

    MISTY
    You've collected a lot of badges but...I still don't think you have what it takes to pull it off.

    ASH
    What? I can taste the victory already!

    MISTY
    It may taste like victory to you, but it smells like defeat to me.

    BROCK
    ....Either way, we'll be rooting for you.

    MISTY
    Well, I don't see how Ash can win with such a clear type-disadvantage.

    BROCK
    Well, maybe Ash can't win on type-advantage, but I still think he has a chance to win if he simply
    allows himself to surrender to his instincts.

    MISTY
    Ash is far too stubborn to do anything like that. Typical boy.

    ASH
    Will you two PLEASE stop talking about me like I'm not here?!?

    BROCK
    Come on guys, we still have a long way to travel.

    MISTY
    Yeah, the journey's far from over! So why are you just standing around!?!

    ASH
    Because....uh...

    Ash looks down and realizes that he isn't walking, but in fact standing.

    ASH
    Who says I can't achieve victory staying right here? I'm good enough.

    Misty and Brock both sweatdrop.

    BROCK
    Ash, since you've left Pallet Town, you've managed to achieve a victory every
    single time, some have taken longer than others, but you are surely on a long-time
    winning streak.

    ASH
    Huh? I've lost many Pokemon battles.

    MISTY
    Ash, don't be so juvenile. We're not talking about Pokemon battling. We're
    talking about what you're really good at.

    BROCK
    And this may be your toughest challenge yet, but remember your instincts...
    remember your heart...you are, in fact, the only one who can *truly* understand
    your latest opponent and achieve another victory.

    MISTY
    Of course, I'm not holding my breath.

    Ash grits his teeth.

    ASH
    I can beat anyone!

    ***

    A sleeping Ash bolts up in bed and strikes a victory pose. After a moment, he looks at Tommy who is
    still sleeping, then he curls back into bed.

    ASH
    That was a wierd dream...

    ***

    The next day, at the Schuryville Wedding Chapel, a frenzy of onlookers and reporters scuffle around the entrance
    as the Isle of Ganymede's richest and most fabulous glitterate make their entrances for the wedding of the decade.

    In a black carriage driven by Zebra-like Pokemon called Zebravo, that is nearing the Chapel, Ash looks in awe at the crowd.

    ASH
    Wow, I had no idea Tommy's family was so popular.

    CARRIAGE DRIVER
    The Knoll family are celebrities. Their wealth, power...half the population wants to be them, the other half loves to
    hate them.

    The carriage stops and Ash gets out, immediately hounded by reporters from the sidelines who ask all sorts of questions.

    In the distance, James watches Ash enter the Chapel from a nearby bush. He is wearing a posh usher outfit. He looks over
    to a man in his underwear, hogtied and gagged.

    JAMES
    Stay still and you'll be fine. I didn't hear you complaining about it twenty minutes ago when we both got off!

    James leaves the bushes, and prims himself. He slicks his hair back, and adds a fake gotee.

    MEOWTH
    (voice)
    JAMES!

    James looks over to see Meowth and Jessie. He squints his eyes.

    JAMES
    I don't want to speak to either of you right now! I'm busy!

    JESSIE
    That's the thing! We're here to *help* you!

    James looks stunned.

    JAMES
    You are?!?

    MEOWTH
    Yeah Jimmy, we decided that da twoip's happiness was that important to you, then it had to
    be important to us too!

    JESSIE
    eh, yes!

    James looks misty-eyed.

    JAMES
    You guys are the best! But...I don't have any appropriate disguises. Believe me, getting this one
    took *a lot* out of me, already.

    Jessie hears this, and instinctively peers over to see the half-naked man in the bushes.

    JESSIE
    James, honestly you tend to meet the kinkiest guys. *sigh* Not to worry, Meowth and I thought up a
    perfect plan.

    ***

    Far from Schuryville, at an isolated cabin near a breathtaking waterfall and surrounded by beautiful green foliage,
    Colorock's Teleport lands Nyla, Gary and Richie in the front yard.

    NYLA
    Good work, Colorock! Right in front of the door!

    COLOROCK
    Colorock!*
    (Yay!)

    RICHIE
    So before we go in...will you *please* tell us why we are here? The wedding will be starting soon!

    Nyla smiles as he looks around.

    NYLA
    This place...is known only by a select few. You are about to meet the most powerful psychic
    I've ever met...quite possibly the wisest man on Earth.

    RICHIE
    If he's so powerful why does he live so far away from civilizatio....

    OLD MAN
    BECAUSE I DON'T LIKE HEARING RANDOM TEENAGE BOY'S THOUGHTS FOR ONE!!!!!!

    Gary and Richie jump in terror as an old man screams right behind them. They spin around in
    shock and see a very wizened, old man. However, he's dressed more like he's ready for a vacation
    to Hawaii than a serious wise old man.

    OLD MAN
    The moment you three landed I starting feeling the urge that I needed to scratch my genetalia, the need
    to take a shower because I *reek* so badly, and the overwhelming lustful thoughts of some Pokemon trainer
    who's a tenth of my age. Really overwhelming lustful thoughts.

    Nyla smiles.

    NYLA
    Oscar. How are you, my friend.

    Oscar smiles and shakes his finger.

    OSCAR
    Oooh, I've been waiting for you to arrive with these two! I know aaaaall about the Knoll's latest schemes, hahaha!

    NYLA
    This is serious. These two are about to lose the love of their lives to that horrible family.

    Oscar laughs lightly and looks over to Gary and Richie.

    OSCAR
    If you two think this is bad, just wait until Ash wants to decorate your gym *his* way for, what does he call it?
    The Ultimate Battling Pad? Hoohoo!

    RICHIE
    We *need* to know the perfect way to...

    OSCAR
    This whole 'wedding' issue bores me, sorry, so I'm not going to talk about it.

    Nyla's eyes widen, he is dumbfounded. Richie and Gary both are shocked.

    RICHIE
    What?

    GARY
    But...

    OSCAR
    Now Ash, there's a topic. You two, nor any of his friends, truly understand Ash's purpose in life. Does he marry
    you, does he marry Tommy? That's trivial and frivelous. It means nothing. Ash isn't on a quest to become
    a Pokemon Master any more than he is on a quest to land you two as husbands. Those are goals he very well
    may reach, but from the moment he awoke on his tenth birthday and formed a bond with Ho-oh, he has undergone
    his destiny...a destiny he chose before his birth, mind you.

    Richie slowly shakes his head, completely lost. He sighs and allows his sholders to droop with tiredness.

    RICHIE
    What....are you talking about?

    OSCAR
    It's quite simple, really. Wherever Ash goes, whatever he does, he meets that special someone...or someones...who fit
    two very distinct criteria. One, they are like yourselves...gay...or bisexual, or on the odd-occasion simply gay friendly. Two,
    they are in dire need of help in some way, some form. Statistically, Ash should have run into someone who was totally straight and homophobic
    and needed his help....but he hasn't...well, with possible exception to a masked trainer's mother....but I digress.
    That's his nature....that's his gift. Both of your lives, in the hear and now, have been completely changed from knowing Ash,
    as have countless others like yourselves. And what is yet to come.

    Richie and Gary silently look at each other, both feeling cold chills and goose bumps. Oscar seems to be done speaking, but as
    he looks at the saddened faces of Richie and Gary, he sighs.

    OSCAR
    Everytime a situation looks grim...take solice in knowing that it's needed.

    GARY
    Needed? How?

    OSCAR
    Sometimes the only way to truly help a person is by taking the rockiest of roads.

    RICHIE
    We're supposed to have faith in that?

    OSCAR
    No, you couldn't possibly yet. However, *do* have faith in each other, and your beloved Ash. I can share one final secret,
    one that will help you believe in time.

    RICHIE
    Which is?

    OSCAR
    Ash must never know of what I've spoke of. To know of his destiny would derail it entirely.
    Watch...protect...but always know that whatever happens, someone like yourselves is going to
    be saved. Leave now, there is nothing left to speak of.

    Gary and Richie both silently draw close to each other, for comfort. Nyla offers Oscar a small smile.

    NYLA
    You *really* think I should learn to speak cryptically like you?

    Oscar smiles widely.

    OSCAR
    Oh, absolutely! Why spell it all out when they can figure it out on their own! It makes like more interesting,
    don't you agree?

    NYLA
    Maybe I'll feel that way at your age...but not just yet. All right fellas, I guess we can leave now.

    OSCAR
    Take care, you three. Safe journeys.

    NYLA
    Colorock, Teleport us one half kilometer away from the Schuryville Wedding Chapel.

    ***

    Meowth is in a dark trenchcoat, standing near the reporters. When he sees Jessie approaching, he immediately
    begins whispering into various reporters ears.

    MEOWTH
    Oh my, dat's Lady Jesseena! She never leaves her mansion except for da rarest of da rarest occasions!
    I hear she has Pokemon so mysterious, even they don't know what they are! I hear she sends a diamond-studded
    pearl necklace to one lucky girl a year! I heard she has so much wealth she has to buy extra mansions just to
    hold it all!

    All the talk gets the reporters buzzing, and Meowth quickly changes outfits and now dons a silk scarf. He runs to Jessie,
    who has obviously stolen someone's very elegant and ritzy dress. She grabs the scarf to act as a lavish leash. She laughs
    light and haughtily as they arrive to the reporters hounding her for questions.

    REPORTER
    Lady Jesseena! Please grace us with a moment of your time!

    JESSIE
    Ahahaha, no I'm afraid that's not possible! Now, may all of you leave tonight and remember my
    breathtakingly youthful beauty!

    MEOWTH
    Meowth! Meowth!

    They continue to waltz in, and grin at each other. They find James, who is ushering guests around. Then they
    find the gift table, which is filled to the max with ultraristically expensive gifts.

    MEOWTH
    Bingo.

    JESSIE
    This will be perfect. When James stops the wedding, we'll use the distraction to grab the loot and be gone
    before anyone suspects a thing.

    MEOWTH
    James will be happy, we'll be happy, and then da boss will be happy!

    JESSIE
    Wait a sec....the boss?

    MEOWTH
    Of course! Naturally we will sell some things, but what do we need with an espresso maker? Da boss will
    see our gifts, use them, and forget about all the mess-up's we've had lately.

    JESSIE
    I see your point. As much as I love that crystal vase, where would it fit in the balloon?

    ***

    Ash looks at himself in the mirror, wearing a very frilly and feminine wedding dress. His hair is perfectly groomed,
    slightly curling instead of sticking out. He's clean and primmed.

    ASH
    Wow....I look....good.

    ***

    In the Chapel, Tommy stands at the alter with his father, watching the guests as they sit and chat.

    MIAS
    Well Thomas, today is the day you earn your rightful place in the Knoll Family Dynasty.

    TOMMY
    I just hope I made the right choice.

    MIAS
    Of course! Ash is a fine young man, and your mother likes him. You know how rare that is.

    TOMMY
    But my magic has changed him into someone I don't exactly want.

    MIAS
    Marriage is about growing as a couple, together. Your mother and her former beau were an acrobatic
    couple, and she wanted to pursue that until we met. Ask her nowadays if she misses her former life.

    Tommy smiles.

    TOMMY
    Who knows? Maybe he really would have loved me reguardless. I mean, he was bonded to two guys
    and he can't even remember them now. I'm good, but I'm not that good.

    MIAS
    Don't underestimate yourself or your talents. Since you were a child it became evident that you hold more
    power than myself, my brothers or sisters, even my father. I am very proud of you.

    Elnora approaches.

    ELNORA
    I believe all of the guests have arrived. We are ready to proceed.

    ***

    Nearing the Chapel are Nyla, Richie and Gary. Nyla is constantly looking at a hand-held monitor.

    NYLA
    All right! I'm happy to report the Psychic Detection Mechanisms installed in the chapel are working!
    Right now the room is filled with various psychics, empaths, shamans, witches, voodoo priests, ect. so
    it will take a few moments to filter them all out.

    RICHIE
    Well, if it works or not, know this; we will not allow this wedding to happen.

    NYLA
    I understand. And you're right, it should not happen. But all I ask...is to give us time. We can solve both of
    our problems, I'm certain.

    ***

    The hushing silence sweeps over the wedding patrons as the Wedding March begins to play. Within moments,
    Ash is walking down the aisle, holding a boquet of roses nonetheless.

    James is stone-still when he sees Ash in drag, who looks beautiful. Even Jessie and Meowth have to stare in silent
    awe as Ash passes them by down the aisle.

    As the music ends, Ash and Tommy clasp hands and the Minister approaches the alter.

    MINISTER
    Friends and comrades, we gather here today to honor the cherished joining of these two individuals. Thomas
    Knoll, who we all know from television and newspapers....and *not* from tabloids...and Ashley Ketcham, a plucky
    ex-Pokemon trainer from a place I've never heard called Pallet Town, Kanto. Hmmm, sounds made up if you ask me.
    He prefers to go by the nickname Ash...wow, I feel so intimate with him now I want to invite him to our next coffee
    clatch and exchange gossip, don't you all?

    The audience laughs.

    MINISTER
    It is said that love is what helped form the very earliest Pokemon, and that is why love exsists in every heart
    of every Pokemon. Along those lines, love is a bi-product of the Human heart, so naturally it is assumed
    that humans will grow to love other humans. Like these two, love was formed and now it must be recognized...
    with vows and finger-bling exchanges. And gifts.

    The wedding patrons all laugh, except Jessie.

    JESSIE
    What kind of minister is he?

    MEOWTH
    The kind that gets the audience laughing, that's what.

    MINISTER
    Ashley, you may now read your vows to Thomas. I assumed you wrote them.

    ASH
    You bet I did.

    MINISTER
    You may proceed.

    Ash smiles in the glinted lighting, his bright face practically sparkling.

    ASH
    Thomas, the day I met you...is the day I learned that my life was meaningless. Because
    of all my accomplishments, I didn't have you in my life. We we're drawn together out of
    destiny, I believe that. I know nothing about this island, really, or it's people. And that's fine with
    me because I'll have you to guide me, and love me. I vow to love, honor, and obey for all the days
    of my life.

    MINISTER
    That was beautiful Ashley, now I'm hoping you didn't have the fabulous Elnora helping you with some
    of those words, hmmmm?

    The audience laughs when Ash turns red and laughs. James growls silently, clutching his Pokeballs in his hand.

    MINISTER
    Thomas, you are next. Obviously.

    The audience laughs.

    THOMAS
    Ash, I have a feeling that you and I will mesh perfectly...as long as you don't give up on your Pokemon training!

    Ash gasps slightly.

    ASH
    Huh?

    THOMAS
    You're a really great trainer and I know that together we can make a great, solid team. We can then win the PsiBattles
    which would allow us access to Victory Island where we can purchase a mansion, the most lavish place on the island.
    This I vow, to protect you from harm, shield you from misery, and love you for all the days of our lives.

    MINISTER
    Well, that was original.

    ***

    Outside, Nyla's monitor bleeps. There is a stunning moment of silence as the realization sweeps over Nyla's face.

    NYLA
    We got it.....WE GOT IT!!!!!! YEAH!!!!!!!

    He jumps in the air, victorious.

    RICHIE
    Come on! We have to hurry!

    The three take off, and immediately are stopped by security at the front entrance.

    SECURITY
    Gotcha! Orders from the knoll family that you two are *not* invited.

    Nyla flashes his badge at the Security men.

    NYLA
    Allow us through, the Knoll family is facing serious criminal charges....perhaps you care to join them?

    The security men immediately back away and the three are off once again.

    ***

    MINISTER
    If anybody objects to this union, speak now because they will be married when this is over and
    nobody wants lengthly and costly divorces.

    James smirks and runs into the isle, grabbing a startled Jessie. Jessie grits her teeth and whispers angrily.

    JESSIE
    James! This wasn't in our plan, ow!

    Meowth is behind them.

    MEOWTH
    (whispering)
    James stop, I need Jessie for the.....er......

    JAMES
    I OBJECT! This wedding is a farce!

    People gasp in the crowd.

    TOMMY
    But you're just an usher!

    JAMES
    Oh really? That's what you think! Take it away, Jess.

    The Team Rocket music starts, and Jessie pleasantly pleads.

    JESSIE
    Prepare for trouble, since this madman has abducted me!

    JAMES
    Make it double, since you must fight us three!

    JESSIE
    No, I'm Lady Jesseena, your goddess of beauty till the end!

    JAMES
    To unite the twerp back with his rightful boyfriends.

    JESSIE
    Oops, I think I lost my contact near the Gifts Table...

    JAMES
    To witness Tommy's defeat will be most entertainable.

    James removes his costume, revealing his Team Rocket uniform. Jessie however does not.

    JESSIE
    Lady Jesseena!

    JAMES
    James!

    JESSIE
    Well if your with Team Rocket, I'm taking myself over there at the speed of light!

    Jessie points to the Gift Table.

    JAMES
    So surrender Ash over or prepair for a monumental fight, fight, FIGHT!

    Meowth hops up cutely, mimicking an ordinary run-of-the-mill Meowth.

    MEOWTH
    Meeeowth, meowth, meowth!

    Wobbuffet pops up, and salutes.

    WOBBUFFET
    Wobbuffet!*
    (*I always cry at weddings!)

    Chimecho hovers up.

    CHIMECHO
    Chime, Chime, Chime.......*
    (*Chime, Chime, Chime......)

    Ash's eyes widen.

    ASH
    Team Rocket?

    JESSIE
    No! I'm the fabulously wealthy Lady Jesseena! Recognize!

    JAMES
    What? Why are you still pretending?

    JESSIE
    (whispering)
    Shut up!

    JAMES
    We have no time for this!

    James grabs Jessie's dress and pulls it off, revealing her Team Rocket uniform.

    MEOWTH
    Aaaaah! Da gig is up!

    MINISTER
    Hey, that Pokemon can speak verbally! You don't see that everyday!

    Meowth gets angry.

    MEOWTH
    I may be a Pokemon but at least I'm not a washed up comedian acting as a minister!

    TOMMY
    You three again? You've made a big mistake.

    JAMES
    No, I think *you'll* find that you've made the mistake! Let's go, Cacnea! Chimecho!

    Cacnea and Chimecho emerge from their balls and look fierce.

    CACNEA
    Cacnea!!!*
    (Look at the pretty floral arrangement! Oh, it makes me think of the day I'll marry James!)

    CHIMECHO
    Chime!*
    (*Chime!)

    Suddenly, James is being hugged by Cacnea and wrapped by Chimecho.

    TOMMY
    Fine, I'll prove my vows right now by defeating you. Go! Sensedep and Witchipoo!

    Witchipoo and Sensedep emerge, ready to battle. Sensedep resembles a young, frightened
    child that has it's eyes, nose, ears, and fingers covered. It's body is pure white and mostly smooth.

    WITCHIPOO
    Witchi!*
    (*Not these creeps again.)

    SENSEDEP
    Sensedep.*
    (*What's going on *now*???)

    JESSIE
    All those beautiful gifts in my grasp! Grrr, let's go! Seviper! Wobbuffet!

    SEVIPER
    Ssssssseviper!*
    (*Pleeeease feed me!)

    WOBBUFFET
    Wobbu!
    (*I am the very model of a loyal Rocket general....)

    ASH
    Four against two, that's not fair!

    GARY
    (voice)
    Make it eight against two!

    ASH
    Oh no, they're back.

    Gary and Richie join James and Jessie.

    GARY/RICHIE
    Team Rocket!

    RICHIE
    What are you three doing here?

    JAMES
    What does it look like? Putting a stop to this two-bit phony!

    TOMMY
    Sensedep, use Psychic Burst!

    Sensedep places it's hands to it's head and screams loudly. A large explosion of psychic energy emerges and with
    deadly speed shoots at all four Pokemon. It hits them hard, sending them back into Jessie and James, which then go
    crashing through the front wall, leaving a large hole where the front doors once were.

    JESSIE/JAMES/MEOWTH
    Team Rocket did a good deed and all we get is a blast off!

    MINISTER
    The chapel!

    NYLA
    This wedding is over! The Knoll Family's days of mind-control are over.

    MIAS
    I beg your pardon?

    RANDOM KNOLL FAMILY MEMBER
    You better have proof to back up your scandelous accusations!

    Nyla holds up his monitor.

    NYLA
    The local officials are outside by now, and yes...arrests will be made today.

    ASH
    No!!!!

    TOMMY
    You....you come and interrupt the happiest day of my life? I've heard enough.
    Sensedep, use Psychic Burst again!

    GARY
    Phhhf, loser. Go, Umbreon! Let's see how his lame-o psychic attacks match up against you!

    UMBREON
    Umbreon!*
    (Gary! And in a wedding chapel no less! *sigh*)

    TOMMY
    Go ahead, Sensedep! Let him have it!

    MINISTER
    Oh no you don't. Go! Trinitidol!

    The minister throws a Pokeball and Trinitidol emerges, a Pokemon that resembles a totem pole. Each head loosely
    resembles a deity.

    Gary and Richie both whip out their Pokedex's.

    DEXTER
    Sensedep, the Sensory Depravation Pokemon, and the pre-evolved form of Sensedoom. Sensedep has
    no access to any of it's five senses, but more than makes up for it with psychic abilities.

    DEXTER
    Trinitidol, the False God Pokemon. Trinitidol believes itself to be a diety, and can easily convince others that
    it is as well. It uses a cultures inate supersticious beliefs against them to gain loyalty and worship.

    DEXTER
    Witchipoo, the Cackling Wicca Pokemon. Witchipoo is the pre-evolved form of WhiteLight and DarkHeart. Witchipoo is known for it's famous cackling. It had the habit of borrowing people's pots for a makeshift cauldron, whipping up all sorts of brews that have various magical effects.

    MINISTER
    Trinitidol, use Idle Worship!

    Trinitidol glows and floats into the air, causing all Pokemon to bow before it.

    MINISTER
    Trinitidol, use Crucifixion on Witchipoo and Sensedep!

    Trinitidol's eyes glow red and thorny bands float down onto Witchipoo's and Sensedep's heads, passing both
    out instantly.

    TOMMY
    Nooo! Ash! We can still get married, come on!

    ASH
    Okay!

    Before Ash can move, Richie and Gary are both holding him.

    GARY
    No no! Let's leave the great escape adventure for another time.

    RICHIE
    You are *so* coming with us.

    ASH
    WHAT?!? No way!!!! Leave me alone! You've ruined my wedding now you want to abduct me?

    NYLA
    It's for the best.

    GARY
    Ash, trust us!

    RICHIE
    You look hot in a dress by the way.

    A smirking Gary and Richie lead a struggling Ash away as police enter the building and begin issuing
    arrests on various Knoll family members. Tommy uses the distraction to also elude capture.

    ***

    James is watching the news report about the big Knoll Family Fiasco in a store window. He sighs.

    JAMES
    Well, at least the twerp didn't end up with that phoney.

    ***

    The following morning, A refreshed and relaxed Gary and Richie emerge from their hotel room, greeting
    Nyla with a happiness that comes from their afterglow.

    GARY
    Morning Nyla.

    NYLA
    How is Ash? Does he remember anything yet?

    RICHIE
    No, he's still blabbing on about Tommy, so I placed a Pokeball-gag into his mouth and the night
    went a lot smoother.

    GARY
    Definately.

    NYLA
    All-right, let's take him to the center. We can hopefully begin treatment.

    Richie enters the room, and emerges with everyone's backpacks and a very disheveled looking
    Ash, who is tied and gagged still, and not looking happy about it.

    NYLA
    Okay Colorock, Teleport us to the center!

    As they vanish, Tommy approaches and squeezes his fists.

    TOMMY
    Ash....

    NARRATOR
    With our heroes more or less reunited, things seem to be taking a turn for the better! But will Tommy allow it to stay that way?

    Yay, an update! I can't review every bit, but I'll just let you know I still can't get over how many good Pokemon you've created. Good to see that our favourite lovers are reunited, though not completely. Wonder how they'll break the spell?

    I don't have much time, so I can't really write a long review, but I really enjoyed Richie's role in this section. He's starting to get more and more like the Richie I know. LOL Sorry for the short comment.

    We open on Gary and Richie looking wide-eyed at a giganticly enormous building, over eighty feet tall and streatching at least
    a quarter of a mile in length. Pikachu is perched on Gary's sholder, and Sparky is perched on Richie's. They walk through a
    large park area, which is nessessary to reach the main entrance.

    GARY
    This place is amazing!

    Richie, who is holding a struggling Ash, nods.

    RICHIE
    You must be very proud, Nyla.

    NYLA
    Well, my organization only makes up a fifth of this building's
    resouces. You see this is the Pokemon Psychic Institute of
    Knowledge and Understanding. Myself and five others pooled
    together to make this an epicenter of the latest in knowledge
    obtaining, offering five different brances.

    GARY
    What are the five branchs?

    NYLA
    Well, you know mine. Psychic Abuse Foundation. But my
    scientists do cover *many* vaious fields. The second is the
    Association of Wiccan Heritage. The third is the Paranormal
    Acedemia, a fountain of knowledge which offers degrees.
    The last two are more science-based; The Continuum Department
    and finally the Scientific Study of Magics Association.

    RICHIE
    And you all work together! How efficient!

    NYLA
    Indeed, I take pride in knowing that long after I'm gone, progress
    will continue for the betterment of us all. Plus, I have a killer office.

    They enter the building. The quiet setting is interrupted as three figures
    emerge from the sky and crash LOUDLY in a bed of flowers.

    POKEMON: <3SHI

    CHAPTER TEN: P.P.I. PUNK!

    ASH
    (voice)
    P. P. I. Punk!

    ***

    We cut to Ash, sleeping on a hospital table. His arms are tied to the restraints. Gary and Richie watch
    as one nurse injects Ash with a needle, then another hooks an IV to his wrist. Nyla approaches them.

    NYLA
    Well, I had my entire team going over all the preliminary data overnight, and
    I'm happy to report that we have successfully identified the precise frequency
    of the Knoll's magic. I'm confident we can eradicate most of the side-effects.

    RICHIE
    Most of them?

    NYLA
    Well, in essese, Ash's long-term memories of both of you are blocked.

    RICHIE
    Blocked? He doesn't remember us?

    The three turn and watch Ash as his pulse is being monitored.

    NYLA
    His short term memory isn't affected, so he does remember you for about the past week
    or so. Essentially, the people he loves the most, he forgets the quickest. Well,
    with his memories returned, the outcome will totally be in your favor.

    GARY
    No wonder Ash hates us. Tommy evened up the score card. Loser.

    NYLA
    We still haven't apprehended Thomas Knoll. He's the real key to all
    of this.

    GARY
    He is?

    RICHIE
    It's his spell. Only he can truly break it.

    GARY
    What?!? So why are we bothering with this?

    NYLA
    Because I truly don't think Thomas will, no matter how
    much force we muster up. The Knoll's are a powerful lot
    and now they are angry. Right now, your best bet is to let the
    doctors do their work. It's all non-evasive...he won't feel
    a thing, and he'll be out of surgary in an hour, tops.

    Richie and Gary look at each other. Richie grabs Gary's hand.

    RICHIE
    I think we just want to stay here until it's over.

    GARY
    We're not going to let him out of our sight until we know he's safe.

    Nyla nods, a smile across his face.

    NYLA
    I get the feeling Ash is going to be glomped the moment you three reunite.

    Gary ***** his head to the right, while Richie looks up at Nyla.

    GARY/RICHIE
    Glomped?

    ***

    The main entrance opens, and Team Rocket enter. They are amazed at the grandness.

    JESSIE
    I could see myself as a CEO of a place like this.

    JAMES
    For some reason, I'd love having the *cutest* office cubicle!
    I could decorate it with chincy posters that say 'hang in there, Pichu'.

    JESSIE
    I'm thinking of being CEO and you're thinking of being a peon?
    I think I'm gonna like it here...

    MEOWTH
    You know what I'm thinkin'? This place would be the most, hands-down
    impressive Team Rocket base in the world! Picture it...

    We fuzz out to see Giovanni waking up in bed. He's in boxers. He
    hears a knocking, and walks to his bedroom door.

    MEOWTH
    (voice)
    Picture da Boss waking up one mornin', and he realizes that three
    welcomes visitors have returned. Who is it, you might ask? It's
    US!

    The door opens to reveal a haggardly Jessie, a very effemanant and
    loudly dressed James, a Wobbuffet that's constantly hitting itself with
    a piece of wood, and a taller, studlier version of our Meowth.

    Giovanni is awe-struck to see them, and blushes when he locks eyes with
    Meowth.

    MEOWTH USING GIOVANNI VOICE
    Why if it isn't my favorite field operative Meowth. Have you been able to
    whip these imbucils into shape yet?

    MEOWTH
    (voice)
    We are happy to report that we have built a Team Rocket base!
    Not in boring old Hoenn, but on Ganymede, the capitol of exotic,
    rare and POWERFUL Pokemon!

    Giovanni gasps, takes Meowth in his hands, and begins watzing with
    him to a rose-petaled background. Then, they dance right into their
    new Team Rocket base, the former P.I.I. The music ends as Giovanni
    dips Meowth.

    MEOWTH
    When he sees how glorious this place is, he'll say with pride...

    MEOWTH USING GIOVANNI VOICE
    For giving me the most priceless gift a boss could ever want,
    I am granting Meowth, Jessie and James full partnership.
    Congratulations!

    The fantasy fuzzes out to see a VERY nunplussed Jessie and James.

    JAMES
    But we're on the other side of the world! Even the most remote Team
    Rocket outpost is thousands upon thousands of miles away!

    JESSIE
    How would the Boss ever get here to see it?

    MEOWTH
    Ash questions later! Now...we need to infilturate our way to the top.

    JESSIE/JAMES
    Right.

    Suddenly, a Woman's voice can be heard, calling to them.

    WOMAN
    Hey there!

    Team Rocket jump suspiciously. Then they smile unevenly at her.

    WOMAN
    Are y'all lost? I just know you two are here for the annual rare
    Pokemon Exhibition and Information Exchange, am I right or am
    I right?

    Jessie and James look at each other.

    JESSIE
    Er....you're right?

    The woman smiles gleefully.

    WOMAN
    I knew it! Everybody always says I'm not psychic, but I KNOW
    deep down that I really am! Tee hee! I'm Marsha! And judging
    from that strange and interesting Pokemon you have there....
    feline....looks like a gold coin where the third eye should be....
    you must be a very interesting psychic-type cat.

    MEOWTH
    Oh you'd be amazed!

    MARSHA
    Oh my goodness! You can talk! How incredibly cool!

    MEOWTH
    If you think dat's impressive, you should see my Fury Swipes!

    MARSHA
    Wow, won't you all please come this way! A large reward is
    granted by the Department Heads for most unique Pokemon
    and I think you might just qualify!

    That's all Team Rocket needs to hear, and they are eagerly following her.

    ***

    Ash's unconscious body is motionless when an older man who...for all
    intents and purposes...is dressed like an old-fashioned Voo-doo doctor...
    but he does have a lab jacket that reads Dr. Tallyman.

    DR. TALLYMAN
    Nurse, bring in...the Subconivore.

    The nurse seems frightened at first, but complies and within moments a
    very grizzly looking Pokemon is wheeled in, strapped to a hospital gurney itself.
    It resembles a Ghastly at first glance, but in reality looks very different. A purple static
    can be seen hovering around it.

    NURSE
    Ready, doctor.

    Outside the operation room, Gary and Richie whip out their Pokedexs'.

    DEXTER
    Subconivore, the Nightmare Devour Pokemon. Subconivore are found
    at night near large groups of sleepers. During the day, it nourishes itself
    on the various dreams it has digested. High level Subconivore have
    the ability to control nightmares.

    DR. TALLYMAN
    Subconivore, target the alien brainwaves and Neurofeast!

    Subconivore's eyes glow and it goes into a trance-like state.

    Richie turns to Gary.

    RICHIE
    This must be what Nyla meant by non-evasive.

    ***

    Jessie and James enter a large Conference Room, and see dozens of various trainers
    with their Pokemon. They are intimidated at first, but maintain their stature.

    MARSHA
    Here we are! The competition isn't for awhile so fave fun!
    We have a complimentary food and drink table over there...

    Team Rocket are immediately gone from Marsha's side, and pushing people over on their
    way to the snack table. Once they arrive, they immediately begin chowing down. Wobbuffet
    lets himself out of his Pokeball and begins eating. Seviper ends up doing the same.

    MARSHA
    My, what a...healthy appetite.

    ***

    Back in the waiting area, the two lovers sit quietly. Richie has his head resting on Gary's
    sholder, while Gary has his head resting on Richie's head.

    The door opens, and Dr. Tallyman exits the room. Richie and Gary both stand.

    DR. TALLYMAN
    I am pleased to announce that Mr. Ketcham is going
    to be fine, the operation was a success.

    Gary smiles, but Richie still looks nervous.

    RICHIE
    So he's back to normal?

    DR. TALLYMAN
    Save for the spell itself being broken, he's as normal as
    ever. Keeping him away from the mind controller, of
    course, is prudent. But aside from that, he's back.

    Richie grabs Gary in a bear hug, and Gary returns the gesture. After a moment, the two
    part and smile with joy back at the doctor.

    GARY
    Can we see him now?

    DR. TALLYMAN
    I'm afraid right now he needs his rest.

    Gary looks down, disapointed. Richie's eyes sadden and widen as he looks at the doctor.

    RICHIE
    Pleeeease? It'll just be for a minute. We just want to see him.

    Dr. Tallyman looks at Richie's pleadful gaze, and finally nods.

    DR. TALLYMAN
    Okay, but only for a minute or two.

    He smiles at Richie, and proceeds to walk away. Gary and Richie smile at each other.

    GARY
    I need to remember you can do that.

    Richie giggles as the two walk into Ash's room.

    GARY
    He looks like...well, if I believed in Angels he would be one.

    RICHIE
    Agreed. And just think...when he wakes up, we'll be together again!

    GARY
    The last several days will be but a crappy memory.

    Nyla enters the room but stops at the doorway.

    NYLA
    Congratulations! I hear the operation went even better than expected.

    RICHIE
    Thanks, now we just need to get Ash off this island so Tommy can't
    warp his mind again.

    NYLA
    Well, that would be a sure fire way to insure Ash doesn't suffer
    a relapse. Hmmmm....I know it's not *impossible* to escape this
    Island. For example, enterprising Psibattlers are allowed to
    visit Victory Island after winning the Psibattles. Victory Island
    is home to several Pokemon powerful enough to return you.

    GARY
    We've heard.

    RICHIE
    That was our original plan. But we've been led to believe
    there are other ways.

    Nyla think for a moment.

    NYLA
    Hmmm, I'll tell ya what. I'll go confer with a colleague of mine, and
    you two go relax. Now Ash looks better than you two.

    GARY
    The past several days have been very stressfull.

    NYLA
    If you go right down this hallway, and down the steps, you'll find
    a magnificent courtyard. The Pokemon that thrive there are known
    for their naturalistic healing properties.

    RICHIE
    Sounds perfect. Thank you.

    ***

    Jessie and James have both somehow produced elegant looking clothing.
    Marsha and Jessie are both sipping champaigne glasses.

    JESSIE
    This island *must* be finally bringing us good luck because
    this looks like a Pokemon Contest! I'll naturally win!

    MARSHA
    What's a Pokemon contest?

    JESSIE
    Oh..well, it's similar to this. You choose a Pokemon, show off it's
    beauty and talent...win a beautiful ribbon...

    MARSHA
    Sounds interesting! Have you won many?

    JESSIE
    Well of course! And since I swept the competition then,
    I'll surely do the same here.

    MARSHA
    How many psychic Pokemon are you bringing up on stage?

    Jessie freezes.

    JESSIE
    You can bring up more than one?

    Marsha laughs.

    MARSHA
    More than one? The more rare psychic Pokemon you have,
    the better! The more...elite trainers usually show off THREE
    rare psychic Pokemon.

    Jessie grins and goes silent. A glint can be seen in her eyes.

    JESSIE
    Well, we'll see what I can do then.

    Jessie walks over to James, who is chatting with several other effemenate
    Pokemon trainers his age, Rory and Chet.

    RORY
    My Technoflava is programmed with over a thousand different songs.

    JAMES
    Oooh, really?

    CHET
    Most of it's disco. His house is practically a full-blown dance club.

    JAMES
    Sounds like fun! I haven't boogied in ages!

    Jessie watches this and thinks a moment. She smiles.

    JESSIE
    Pardon me *boys*....James, I need to speak with you...

    She pulls him away by the arm.

    JAMES
    What is it?!?

    JESSIE
    James! I need to borrow your Chimecho.

    James gasps.

    JAMES
    Why on Earth would you want my prescious Chimecho?

    JESSIE
    I just found out this isn't like a normal Pokemon contest.
    Here, quantity owns quality! With Meowth, Wobbuffet,
    Dustox and Chimecho that will give me *four* psychic
    Pokemon that are so rare, I'll....er, we'll win for sure!

    JAMES
    But Meowth isn't a psychic Pokemon.

    JESSIE
    Sure it is! Meowth!

    Meowth is indulging in a glass of milk. He walks over to Jessie.

    JESSIE
    Inform James that Meowths have psychic abilities.

    Meowth thinks.

    MEOWTH
    Well Jimmy, it depends on the Meowth. I've known Meowths
    that knew Hypnosis, Amnesia...even Dream Eater!

    JAMES
    You wouldn't know any of those by any chance?

    MEOWTH
    Maybe...

    Meowth spins around and stares into Wobbuffet's eyes.

    MEOWTH
    Look into my eyes. You are getting sleepy. You are
    falling asleep. Sleeep. Sleeeeep.

    Jessie and James lean in, wondering if Wobbuffet's motionlessness is a sign.

    WOBBUFFET
    Wobbuffet!*
    (*...I can wait)

    Meowth sighs with defeat. Jessie grits her teeth.

    JESSIE
    This isn't what I need to hear right now. Meowth,
    you'll figure out a way to impress those judges.
    Or else.

    Chimecho floats by serenely and Jessie grabs it
    forcefully, fire in her eyes and venom shooting
    from her mouth.

    CHIMECHO
    If you mess up, I will gladly watch you glide
    down a PAPER SHREDDER!

    CHIMECHO
    CHIIIIME!!!!*
    (*CHIIIIME!)
    ***

    Gary and Richie enter the courtyard, and smile serenely at the lush gardens and
    grassy knolls. Random people can be seen dotting the area, all of them appear to
    be in relaxed, good moves. Richie removes his hat, allowing the sun to bring out the
    red highlights in his brunette hair, and smiles as the two make their way through rose
    bushes.

    GARY
    Wow, I didn't realize it but a huge weight has been lifted off my sholder.

    Richie grabs Gary's hand.

    RICHIE
    You were brave through the whole thing, thank you.

    GARY
    Hey, you were there for me. I should be thanking you!
    It was you being there that kept me together.

    The two smile at each other, and draw closer as they walk.

    RICHIE
    This place is really nice...

    They come across a partially shaded area...a patch of grass nuzzled between two bright
    flower bushes, both various shades of violet. Richie grins and pulls a stunned Gary sideways,
    and both fall into the grass.

    GARY
    Hey!

    The two grab each other and laughingly roll around a bit, before Richie manages to find himself
    successfully straddling Gary, his hands holding Gary's wrists to the ground. Richie winks and smirks.

    RICHIE
    Gotcha.

    GARY
    Got me.

    Richie smiles, leans down, closes his eyes and plants a sweet kiss on his lips. He rests his body down
    onto Gary's, the sweet kiss becoming more forceful and deep. He then rises back up quickly.

    RICHIE
    We better stop...

    GARY
    Or they'll kick us out for indecency.

    Richie sighs and rolls off of Gary, now laying on his side and propping his head up with his wrist and his elbow
    firmly planted on the ground. He smiles.

    RICHIE
    So what do you think about what that old guy said?

    GARY
    I dunno. Ash is on this grand journey to help out gay people. It sounds ridiculous.

    RICHIE
    Well, maybe. But when I think about Ash's life...he does help an aweful lot of people.

    GARY
    True. Like Todd and Tracey. They wouldn't have met if it weren't for Ash.

    Richie's smiles subsides a little.

    RICHIE
    Tracey? So you know him?

    GARY
    Know him? Gramps lets him use *my* room.

    Richie bites his lower lip a moment, then narrows his eyes.

    RICHIE
    Did you ever...get with him?

    Gary's eyes widen and he sweatdrops.

    GARY
    TRACEY?!? He creeps me out! I caught him sketching me twice...once while
    I was sleeping...and the other while I was bathing!

    RICHIE
    He does like to draw. So did you do him?

    Gary is about to reply when he suddenly stops and smirks.

    GARY
    You did, didn't you?

    Richie smiles innocently and shrugs.

    RICHIE
    Oh yeah, he was begging for more the whole time.

    Gary erupts in laughter.

    GARY
    I know! He's such a creepy guy but he really knows how to work that behind.

    Richie and Gary both erupt in a fit of laughter as wind rustles through their hair.

    RICHIE
    So have you had many...guys on the side?

    GARY
    Like I told Ash...five guys. My first was one of my cheerleader's brothers...who may
    as well have been a cheerleader himself. Then I went for a long time, waiting for Ash.
    After I while I met a Gym Leader named Morty.

    RICHIE
    Whoa, I battled Morty! He's really cool!

    GARY
    I almost fell for him...I think we understood each other. Finally I gave in and
    got with Tracey. He became needy really quickly...thank goodness he found
    Todd.

    RICHIE
    No kidding.

    GARY
    The last guy is one of my interns back at the lab. Jordan. I'm almost
    glad Team Rocket abducted me, cuz I didn't want to break his heart.

    RICHIE
    Yeah.

    GARY
    So, what about you? If I recall, you've been with more than me.

    Richie grins.

    RICHIE
    Well, most of them are Pokemon trainers. The first was this really cocky
    "Gym Leader" wannabe named AJ. I owned him...I guess he was so caught
    up on his "100 wins" that he underestimated me.

    GARY
    I get the feeling a lot of people underestimate you.

    Richie smiles, his blue eyes shimmer.

    RICHIE
    You're not wrong.

    Gary grunts.

    RICHIE
    So my second was Ash, and after him was this really...to put it mildly...
    obnoxious trainer named Lance. He was cute...he had pink hair...but
    all he talked about was how important he was....he had to go. He was
    fun to dominate, but that was it.

    GARY
    Lance....how do I know that name?

    RICHIE
    I dunno, he didn't talk about his occupation. Anyways, next came this really
    hot librarian in Johto. I was researching mysterious Pokemon, and ended up
    doing some extra researching after the library closed.

    GARY
    Really...

    RICHIE
    Next was a guy a couple years younger than us named Oliver. He's what
    they call a 'Whirl Cup Brat'. His parents were richer than mine. Guess what
    his first Pokemon was?

    GARY
    A Politoad?

    RICHIE
    Nope. Good guess, but his parents bought him a Lanturn.

    GARY
    Whoa. You don't see those everyday.

    RICHIE
    Then came Tracey. Then I met an older man named Silver. He was kind
    of like Ash, very sweet. There was also this one guy I got with back in
    the past, but he pretty much likes girls.

    GARY
    Back in the past?

    RICHIE
    Long story.

    ***

    In the Conference Room, Marsha approaches Jessie.

    MARSHA
    The Corporate Heads are entering right now!

    She points to the grand stairwell, and Jessie sees seven people walking down the stairs.
    A woman in classy attire runs to the podium.

    WOMAN
    Welcome everyone! I am Ginny!!! Four time winner and your host for this evening!

    The audience applauds.

    GINNY
    And now I'd like to introduce to you our judges, the heads of the departments!
    From the Association of Wiccan Heritage, Yvonne Lenk and Tabatha!
    From the Psychic Abuse Foundation, meet Nyla and Caleb! From the
    Continuum Department, say hello to Mistriss Mowavah! From the
    Scientisic Study of Magics Association, Dr. Madelyn Lesch and from the
    Paranormal Academia Department, Dr. Nikolas Bolt.

    Marsha leans over to Jessie.

    MARSHA
    Well, they're all there. This year will be tough.

    Jessie sees Caleb and Nyla, and closes her eyes in frustration.

    JESSIE
    This could be a problem....

    Jessie sneaks away to James, who is still involved in a lively conversation
    with Rory and Chet.

    JESSIE
    James! Red alert!

    She spins him around, and when he sees Caleb and Nyla, he freaks as well.

    JAMES
    The museum loser and that psychic cop? Great, we might as well quit.

    JESSIE
    Absolutely not. Our idea will go as planned, but you'll need to change your
    look even more.

    JAMES
    And what about you?

    Jessie thinks a moment, then sighs. She whips out a brush and VOILA! James
    gasps as Jessie makes her hair look luxuriously beautiful and girlish. She then
    applies purple and pink make-up.

    JESSIE
    Meet Jessica! I'm just a sweet and lovely young beauty from a distant villiage
    on Ganymede.

    JAMES
    Most impressive.

    JESSIE
    The prize will be mine.

    ***

    Richie and Gary are sitting in a section called The Eatery. Both are drinking.
    Richie has water, Gary has green tea.

    RICHIE
    Do you think about what Ash told us?

    Gary nods.

    GARY
    When he said he's been with over thirty guys? I don't know...

    RICHIE
    Would it matter?

    GARY
    I don't know. We're all sixteen. On average, that would be about...five
    a year since he was ten?

    RICHIE
    We don't know to what degree he was with these guys. It could have been
    light stuff.

    Gary takes a sip and purses his lips.

    GARY
    Ya think?

    RICHIE
    I dunno. He is *quite* the bottom.

    ***

    GINNY
    I see we have more spectators this year than actual participants.
    I'd like to remind you all that even if you don't have the rarest Pokemon,
    or a bucket load of them, it's not like you can't show off your great captures
    all the same! We *love* psychic Pokemon all the same! Now, on to our first
    guest. Maureen from Emerald Caverns!

    A posh looking woman with raven-black hair steps onto the stage.

    MAUREEN
    Dazzle them! Premunition! Dejoodlevu!

    Maureen's Pokemon appear. One appears to be a Cannon, while the other looks
    like a poodle.

    Ginny smiles and looks at the entry forms.

    GINNY
    Well, well, well! I haven't seen either of these in a decade! Very nice, ideed!
    Let's see....Premunition is the Psychic Armory Pokemon. It's one of the toughest
    out there, as it can blast psychic attacks at enemies with ease. And awwwwe!
    A Dejoodlevu! That's the Hyper Aware Poodle Pokemon, and isn't it prescious?!?

    Jessie smirks.

    JESSIE
    Hmph. There's no competition there.

    Marsha smiles.

    MARSHA
    True, while they are both nice...I have a feeling this year will bring us better.

    ***

    In a white hallway, Gary and Richie make their way back to Ash's room. They enter,
    and see the bed is empty. They are both alarmed.

    GARY
    Oh no, where is he now?

    RICHIE
    You don't think...

    Suddenly, a hand is wrapping around both Gary's and Richie's eyes, and a figure springs
    up to yell in their ears.

    FIGURE
    GOTCHA BOTH HA HA!!!!

    Richie and Gary, shocked, fall into the bed on impact, and immediately turn over to see Ash,
    still in his hospital gown, laughing heartily. His left arm is behind his neck, and his right is holding
    his gut.

    GARY
    Ashy?

    Ash winks and sticks out his tongue.

    ASH
    Yep. Thanx so much! I can't believe I almost married Tommy...

    Upon saying his name, Ash gets a bit distant and misty-eyed. Richie notices
    this and quickly grabs Ash, yanking him onto himself. Ash laughs and begins making
    out with Richie, while Gary gives Ash a kiss on the back of his neck.

    RICHIE
    So you remember everything?

    ASH
    You mean the whole thing? Yeah. I remember it. Looking back
    it's kinda like I wasn't thinking right...but it seemed right somehow.

    RICHIE
    The spell's not broken. Science has cured you, but you're not immune
    to his....charms, just yet.

    GARY
    Pikachu is outside. You've really ****** him off this time.

    RICHIE
    Yeah...And where is Shi?

    Ash's eyes widen.

    ASH
    Ah!

    Ash quickly jumps up, oblivious to the fact that he is in a hospital
    gown and sporting a tent, begins running to the dresser. When he sees
    it's empty, he runs into the hallway.

    ASH
    Where's my backpack?!?

    Several older teenage girls in candystriper dresses walk by and giggle. Ash looks
    down and blushes.

    ASH
    Oh great.

    Pikachu and Sparky look up at Ash. Pikachu frowns and looks away.

    ASH
    Pikachu! I'm sorry! I really was a jerk, I know it! But you know I love you!

    Sparky looks at Pikachu with tenderness.

    SPARKY
    Pika...pikapichupi*
    (*See? I told you he would be back to normal after they were done.)

    PIKACHU
    Piiiika*
    (I don't know. First he ditches me for Gary and Richie...now he ditches me for Tommy)

    ASH
    You're my best buddy! I would never have forgiven myself
    if something happoned to you! I love you!

    Pikachu shifts his eyes a moment, smiles, and perks up. He hops up into
    Ash's arms.

    SPARKY
    Pika!*
    (Thank goodness that wasn't a thirty minute drama!)

    ***

    GINNY
    And now, please welcome Lady Jessica!

    Lady Jessica giggles and hops onto the stage.

    JESSIE
    Like, hello all! I am the young and lovely Lady Jessica!
    And I scowled the very hidden bowels of Ganymede and
    guess what I found! Go! Dustox! Wobbuffet! Chimecho!

    The three appear from it's Pokeballs'. Dustox flutters happily.

    DUSTOX
    Duuuuustox!*
    (*Hi everybody! I'm Dustox!!!!)

    Wobbuffet salutes proudly.

    WOBBUFFET
    Wobb-UFFET!!!!*
    (...and yet I find myself wondering...will they like me? Or will they throw me into the rueful
    gutters of the city, a pale wretched version of my former glorious self. Oh, there is an ironic
    humor to my calamity, for the entire world to witness. Take my soul! Shatter it, tear it!)

    CHIMECHO
    Chime Chime Chime.....*
    (Chime Chime Chime......)

    JESSIE
    And of course, my star of the stage....Meowth!

    Meowth hops up, and cutely does cat-like stunts.

    GINNY
    I must say, Lady Jessica. What an....*impressive* collection
    of rare Pokemon. I've never seen these before! Have any of
    you all?

    Everyone in the audience shakes their heads.

    GINNY
    Amazing. According to this...Dustox is the Poison Moth. Interesting.
    Wobbuffet is the Patient Pokemon and Chimecho is the Wind Chime
    Pokemon. Meowth is the Cat Scratch Pokemon.

    JESSIE
    Chimecho, use Psywave! Dustox, use Psybeam! Wobbuffet, use Mirror Coat!
    Then, Dustox...gust them into the air!

    Chimecho and Dustox send their multicolored psychic attacks at a nervous
    Wobbuffet, who sweatdrops.

    WOBBUFFET
    Wobbu!*
    (I'm going to have a headache after this...)

    Wobbuffet shimmers brightly and sends the attacks upwards, where Dustox Gusts them into the air
    where they collide into a beautiful shimmering spectacle.

    AUDIENCE
    Ooooh....

    GINNY
    Amazing! You combined them all so well, I feel like I should have paid admission!

    Jessie laughs triumphantly.

    GINNY
    But we still haven't seen Meowth display his talent.

    Meowth hops up to Ginny and grabs the microphone.

    MEOWTH
    Hi dere! I'm Meowth, and as you can see my keen psychic
    abilities allowed me to learn how to speak like a Human!

    AUDIENCE
    *gasp*

    MEOWTH
    Now, all I need is a volunteer fron da audience! Preferably one
    dat can't communicate with dere Pokemon using telepathy!

    A few arms raise, and Meowth picks a small girl with a Psigel.

    GINNY
    Awwe, she has a Psigel! Not the most rarest, but a catch nonetheless!

    MEOWTH
    Meowth, meowth, meowth!*
    (*So what have you been itching to tell your master?)

    Psigel, a glop of gelatenous ooze, smiles meekly.

    PSIGEL
    Psigel. Gel! Psi...psigel.*
    (*Tell her to stop telling me to use Kaboom. It hurts! And she needs
    to clean her balls more often!)

    Meowth smiles innocently.

    MEOWTH
    It's saying it loves you very much but when you use Kaboom it
    hurts it! And it would like you to wash it's Pokeball.

    GIRL
    Oh my! I'm so sorry Psigel!

    AUDIENCE
    Awwwe.

    GINNY
    I must say, this has been a most unique display of psychic talent!

    JESSIE
    When I'm involved, expect nothing less! Ha ha!

    The audience applauds loudly. The judges look impressed.

    ***

    Ash, who has his clothes back on, looks frantically through his back pack.

    ASH
    I know I threw it in here somewhere!

    Suddenly, he finds the Pokeball. He looks at it with a gaze at first, then throws
    it sadly into the air. Shi pops out, sees Ash, and flies to him....knocking him over with
    force as he bear hugs him.

    SHI
    Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!!!!!!!!*
    (ASH! I MISSED YOU! I KNEW SOMETHING WAS WRONG BUT I WAS TRAPPED! I LOVE YOU!)

    Ash, shocked from the fall, quickly smiles and laughs.

    ASH
    I love you too, Shi!

    Richie smiles, as does Gary.

    RICHIE
    Well, I think it's time to find Nyla. Get ourselves off Ganymede once and for all.

    ASH
    Yeah.

    ***

    In the conference room, all the trainers are lined up on the stage. James is being tugged out the
    side-entrance by Chet and Rory. Ginny happily walks up with an envelope.

    GINNY
    And now, the moment you've all been waiting for! The
    winner is....Lady Jessica!

    Jessie laughs out loud, truly happy with her accomplishment. She steps forward and
    is handed a boquet of exotic flowers, and a tiera is placed on her head. She gasps, and as
    she sees the audience applaud, she can't help but shed a few tears of joy.

    JESSIE
    All my life this is what I was born for. It feels good to finally get it.

    GINNY
    And of course, let's not forget about her fabulous prizes!
    Lady Jessica, you've won an entire year's supply of the
    most prestegious beauty products on the island! And
    don't forget about the VIP Card, which allows you free
    dining an any fine resturaunt on the island. And, of course,
    a handsom sum of money.

    JESSIE
    Thank you Ginny, thank you audience! I'll be outside after
    to autograph photos of myself! Only ten dollars!

    Meowth pops up.

    MEOWTH
    And if *you'd* like Meowth, psychic pokemon extraordinare to
    help *you* communicate with your Pokemon, I'll be outside too!
    Only twentyfive dollars a conversation!

    In the judges stand, Caleb looks over to Nyla as they walk down to congratulate the winner along with the
    rest of the judges..

    CALEB
    There is something awefully familiar about that Pokemon.

    NYLA
    I've seen one before...but the trainer was a skanky older woman
    with horrid fashion sense.

    Jessie spins around and glares at Nyla and Caleb, fire literally smoldering out of her eyes.
    She grits her teeth and elegantly extends her hand. Both men shake it.

    JESSIE
    Well, if you'll excuse me, I have to meet my adoring fans! ha ha!

    Jessie waltzes away.

    ***

    We cut to outside the Institution, where Ash flies out of the exit, with an equally exhuberant
    Pikachu, Sparky and Shi. Ash jumps into the air.

    ASH
    Yeah!!!
    .
    Richie, Nyla, Gary and Caleb all exit behind him.

    CALEB
    Wow, you three have really come a long way since I met you
    in Cherry Bust Villiage.

    GARY
    I can't believe you are the co-founder of this organization.

    RICHIE
    I know. I've had my fair share of once-in-a-lifetime happenstances.

    Ash runs off to play with the three Pokemon. The rest linger at the stairwell.

    CALEB
    Well, don't blame me! Blame the laws of probability.

    RICHIE
    How so?

    Nyla grins.

    NYLA
    They don't exactly apply on this island. People tend to get used to it.
    Other people can learn to use it to their advantage.

    RICHIE
    In that case, it's even more vital that we vacate this island.

    GARY
    Who knows if Tommy will try again.

    RICHIE
    Nyla, you said you know someone who can help us?

    WOMAN'S VOICE
    That would be me, young man.

    Richie and Gary both turn to see Mistress Mowava, one of the judges from
    the contest. A very short, rather portly woman wearing a hawaiian mu-mu and
    wearing an Indian Turquoise necklace. She has dark sunglasses and curly, almost
    frizzy to 'fro standards, hairstyle. Her heavy accent is Ukranian-like.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    I am Mistress Mowavah. I run the Continuum Department.

    Richie and Gary both look down at the lady with curiosity.

    RICHIE
    Uh....hi.

    GARY
    It's...an honor to meet you.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    Have no fear, dearies. I hold the solution to your stranded nature.

    Both teens' eyes widen.

    RICHIE
    You do?

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    You'll be back wherever it is that you're from within the day.

    ***

    Ash and Shi are chasing after Sparky and Pikachu when they come
    across a crowd flocking around a central figure.

    ASH
    Hey, I wonder what's going on?

    Ash pushes his way through the crowd, and finds 'Lady Jessica', at
    a shoddily hand-made booth, signing autographs for cash.

    JESSIE
    That's right! Come see my incredibly rare psychic Pokemon! Only
    five dollars and you can gaze at their beauty.

    Ash runs up. Jessie sees him and freaks.

    JESSIE
    What do you want!!!!!!

    Ash fishes in his pocket and withdraws five dollars.

    ASH
    Uh....can I see the Pokemon?

    Jessie sweatdrops.

    JESSIE
    Uh....

    Ash happily hands her the money and walks to an area hidden by a makeshift curtain.
    There he sees Dustox, Wobbuffet, Chimecho, and Meowth, who is helping a lady
    speak with her Coituscopia.

    ASH
    Hey, these aren't psychic Pokemon! It's Team Rocket's Pokemon!

    Meowth shakes his fist at Ash angrily.

    MEOWTH
    We are so rare! At least here we are!

    ASH
    Yeah, I suppose....but wait! That would mean...

    Ash points at Jessie, who quickly decides to set up shop for the day.

    JESSIE
    Well loyal fans, I'm afraid it's time to go now!

    James, looking somewhat disheveled, returns to the group.

    JAMES
    Sorry, I was busy with Chet and Rory.

    Ash gasps.

    ASH
    It's Team Rocket!

    Jessie sighs as she looks at her adoring fans, who really do adore her.

    JESSIE
    *sigh* Well, it was nice being loved and adored for once....but
    I am a villianess at heart.

    JAMES
    Did I miss something?

    Gary, Nyla, Richie and Caleb approach, Mistress Mowavah right behind them.

    Jessie smiles at James.

    JESSIE
    Prepare for trouble with a victory streak!

    JAMES
    And make it double since winning's for keeps.

    JESSIE
    To protect the world from devistation.

    JAMES
    To unite all people within our nation.

    JESSIE
    To denounce the evils of truth and love.

    JAMES
    To extend our reach to the stars above!

    Jessie throws off her dress, revealing her classic attire.

    JESSIE
    Jessie!

    JAMES
    James!

    JESSIE
    Team Rocket, blast off at the speed of light.

    JAMES
    I may not know what's going on but I'll still win the fight!

    Meowth cutely appeals to the audience.

    MEOWTH
    Meeeeeowth! That's right!

    WOBBUFFET
    Woooobbuuuuffeeeeet!*
    (With exception to Meowth, Jessie really didn't do anything wrong so make that Double Right!)

    CHIMECHO
    Chiiiiiiime!*
    (Chiiiiiime!)

    DUSTOX
    Dustox!!!!!*
    (*Hey I'm joining in too! Yay!)

    GARY/NYLA/RICHIE/CALEB
    Team Rocket!

    James scratches his head.

    JAMES
    So what *is* happening? What's with the tiera?

    JESSIE
    You're looking at the *winner* of this year's contest!

    CALEB
    Well, I may not like you very much, but you *did* win.

    JESSIE
    That's right, so if you'll excuse me...

    ASH
    I don't trust them! They're probably trying to steal Pokemon.

    Jessie casually looks around...everyone has their Pokemon.

    JESSIE
    Hahahaha....wrong again, wimp.

    MEOWTH
    Yeah! It's obvious *someone's* jealous....

    Team Rocket start leaving. Suddenly, a small golden trinket with bedazzling jewels
    falls from Meowth's napsack filled with money. Everyone gasps.

    JESSIE
    Er....what's that?

    MEOWTH
    This? I found it....it's shiny.....

    NYLA
    That's the P.P.I.'s signature power stone! It's prescious to us!

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    This is an OUTRAGE!

    Ash smiles.

    ASH
    Pikachu, thunderbolt!

    PIKACHU
    PiiiikaaaaCHUUUUUUUU!!!!!

    Team Rocket is electrocuted, and fly into the air. Jessie is in lighter spirits, and James has his arms
    crossed.

    JESSIE
    Well, at least I'm getting a tiera and mucho cash this time.

    JAMES
    We were this close to not being blasted off, thanks Meowth.

    MEOWTH
    I swear I had no idea it was that valuable! It was cheaply made, I thought it was a
    dollar store item.

    JAMES
    We lost our supreme Team Rocket Base.

    JESSIE
    Who needs bases when I am clearly destined to be a Contest Winner!

    JAMES
    Well until then...

    TEAM ROCKET
    We're blasting off again!

    WOBBUFFET
    Wobbuffet!*
    (*Whatever...)

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    You have...interesting Pokemon dear. What in the world is this?

    Ash pets his Shi, who smiles happily.

    ASH
    This is Shi!

    Mistress Mowavah's expression turns from intrigue to recognition.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    A Shi....of course, you three must be the ripple all the
    true psychics have been feeling lately.

    NYLA
    It's a shame you didn't enter the contest because historically
    Shi's always win. Unfortunately Team Rocket made out
    with all the prizes.

    CALEB
    I did really enjoy her show. And that talking Meowth....I found
    out my Technoflava hates emo music.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    Please....all, come with me.

    Nyla watches her walk towards the forest, and he wrinkles his eyebroiws.

    NYLA
    Shouldn't we be heading to the Continuum Department?

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    You don't really think I leave anything valueble there, do you?
    The most basic of the Continuum's knowledge lies there.
    I am about to show you where our true power lies.

    And with that, the group ventures into the forest.

    NARRATOR
    As our heroes make their way to the mysterious
    heart of the Continuum, Richie, Ash and Gary all
    have positive outlooks, for they are once again together.

    [loads review cannon]

    What a fun chapter! Lol to the glomped part, and yay for the shippiness between Gary and Richie. I thought Ganymede was liberal enough to let them do that in the bush, though. :P

    The music ends as Giovanni dips Meowth.
    Okay, I am not sure what that meant...? Interesting bit about the Subconivore (sub-conscious carnivore? ), and good contest stuff. You really did keep them in character in this story. Also, you spell it "effeminate", with an i, not an e.

    I dunno. Ash is on this grand journey to help out gay people. It sounds ridiculous.
    XD That's so like him! Smexy part about who they've been with, too. LOL, Tracey likes to draw Gary? I can just imagine that being in the Pokemon spoof of Titanic. XD Ash sporting a tent, how I'd like to see that. But he's back in action, and blasts TR off right away. It's him, definitely.

    The Heart of the Continuum sounds interesting. Can't wait!

    I'm wondering, also... Is there going to be anything more than kissing in this fic? It's hardly R-rating, so I'm just curious if you have a steamy scene planned.

    LOL! I'm sure it is...they just think in 'Kanto' terms.

    Okay, I am not sure what that meant...?
    It's a dance move, where one partner is dipped down.

    Yep. Ash is back. Tracey is kind of the 'doorknob' of the Pokemon world.

    The Heart of the Continuum sounds interesting. Can't wait!
    Thanx! Next chapter should be done soon...

    I'm wondering, also... Is there going to be anything more than kissing in this fic? It's hardly R-rating, so I'm just curious if you have a steamy scene planned.
    Well, yes. One of the running gags is that they keep getting interrupted before anything can happen...but don't worry. I have something special planned for them.

    Thanx so much for your reviews! You, and the handful of others that appear to read this...are the reason I write it!

    Oh, I had no idea there was another chapter posted. I just read it and really Gary and Richie moments. I'd like to see some more "interaction" between the characters, if you get what I'm saying. I know I've said this before, but this story is very dialogue heavy. Maybe more sensory and concrete imagery would best--less telling, more showing.

    The sun is beginning to set as a group of travelers make their way through a dark and forboding
    forest. Mistress Mowavah is leading the way, with Nyla and Caleb directly behind her. Following
    slightly farther away is Ash, Richie and Gary. The three are pleasantly looking around and eyeing
    each other. Behind them is Sparky, Pikachu and Shi.

    ASH
    This is so cool. We'll be home soon!

    GARY
    All this traveling, I've been gone from my lab for weeks.

    ASH
    And I need to compete in the Hoenn Competition!

    RICHIE
    And I was planning on taking part in the Johto Silver Conference.

    The three contemplate for a moment. Caleb turns to face them.

    CALEB
    Sounds like you three all have busy lives back where you're from.

    Gary nods once.

    GARY
    Now that I think about it...this has been kind of like a vacation.

    Richie ***** his head slightly to the side.

    RICHIE
    Yeah, aside from all the misery, pain and terror....this has been
    a great break from our lives. And it brought us together.

    ASH
    Yeah, I can't believe I wound up with *both* of you...I feel so lucky!

    Richie and Gary both offer their boyfriend a smile.

    GARY
    Considering less than a month ago, the three of us we're in completely
    seperate countries.

    Caleb turns around again.

    CALEB
    So...if you three are leading that seperate of lives...which two of you
    will be giving theirs up?

    RICHIE
    Excuse me?

    Nyla turns back as well.

    NYLA
    Oh, pay no attention...he's teasing you guys. He's been that way since
    we were kids.

    Caleb winks at Nyla.

    CALEB
    He's just saying that because I've know how to push his buttons since.
    If the three of you are carrying on in different countries, it will become
    tedious to keep a relationship up...

    NYLA
    Stop scaring them...you know as well as I do...these things work themselves
    out.

    Caleb smiles.

    CALEB
    Sorry. Of course. You three have obviously been through a lot together,
    and you're still in love. You'll be fine.

    And with that, Caleb spins back around and proceeds to converse with Nyla.
    Gary and Richie look at each other, now with an air of uncertainty.

    ***

    Fade to black

    POKEMON: <3SHI

    CHAPTER ELEVEN: SHI DOESN'T LIVE HERE ANYMORE

    ASH
    (voice)
    Shi doesn't live here...anymore!!!!!

    ***

    NARRATOR
    Our reunited heroes finds themselves remarkably on the road home.
    However, they are not alone in the forest...

    Slightly further back in the forest, a very tired Team Rocket trek along.

    JESSIE
    How much more walking can the twerps possibly endure?

    JAMES
    Who needs treadmills?

    JESSIE
    I wish I knew where they were going...and who that little old woman is.

    MEOWTH
    She was one of those judges, which means she is a woman with power,
    and that means powerful Pokemon!

    Jessie smirks.

    JESSIE
    Perhaps she's leading us to a hidden glen filled with exotic Pokemon.

    JAMES
    With so many to choose from, we'll have pick of the litter!

    MEOWTH
    And da Boss'll get the best!

    TEAM ROCKET
    Promotions, Espense Accounts, Company Cars, and Extended Vacations!

    Wobbuffet pops up happily.

    WOBBUFFET
    Woooobbuufeeeeeet!*
    (*And a meditation room for me!)

    Further ahead, Mistress Mowavah abruptly stops and smiles serenely.
    Nyla and Caleb both stop and look around cautiously.

    NYLA
    What's wrong?

    Mistress Mowavah turns and smiles at the group of guys.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    Nothing wrong, dearies. We're here.

    Ash, Gary and Richie look in all directions...and see nothing except trees
    with lush foliage.

    ASH
    Huh? This is it?

    GARY
    *This* is the heart of the Continuum?

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    No dears, this is one of the many entrances.

    Mistress Mowavah looks down and finds a small acorn. She then walks over
    to a small boxelder tree and places it inside a small indentation. Moments
    later a loud rumbling can be heard as five nearby trees begin to shift their
    shape, forming an arc. Static electricity courses through the trees and a
    portal emerges inside the arc.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    Indeed, the days of "Open Sesame" are over.

    Nyla and Caleb both raise an eyebrow in shock, but the younger three are floored.

    RICHIE
    Amazing...

    ASH
    Whoa, how did you do that?

    Mistress Mowavah smiles pleasantly at Ash.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    One of the Continuum's more...simple inventions.
    Druid Nature Magic combined with technology.
    Come now.

    Richie, Gary and Ash all look nervous. Suddenly, Toadstoolio pops
    out of it's Pokeball and strikes a dramatic, tense pose.

    TOADSTOOLIO
    'stoooooooooooolio!*
    (Well boys, this....could....be.....it. The end of the line. Yes, it was a short
    yet memorable tenue as a Pokemon trainee....but alas! There may be...)

    Gary sighs and retrieves his Pokemon. Mistress Mowavah leads the group through the portal.
    Moments later Team Rocket appproach it.

    JAMES
    I don't know about this...

    JESSIE
    What's there to know? Now hurry before it closes!

    Jessie pushes James in, then her and Meowth jump in after him.

    ***

    In a deep valley, a black marble building sits amidst an idyllic looking
    nature scene, although slightly foggy. A slight crackling of energy erupts
    into a full-blown portal which everyone exits.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    Now this....this is my baby. My pride and joy.
    My gift to the world. Gentlemen, welcome.
    This is the true heart...my heart...of the Continuum.

    ASH
    Whoa....

    CALEB
    Where in the world are we?

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    Misty Valley.

    Nyla and Caleb both glance at each other.

    NYLA
    Misty Valley...is a legend. People have looked
    for ages, but it's not real.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    Then perhaps you stepped into a legend.
    Either way, here we are. Come.

    She leads them to a shiny black entrance, which is a small cave-like
    hallway which leads to the main area. No doors anywhere.

    NYLA
    You don't seem to have any security in place.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    What's the point, dearie? Most people could never dream
    of finding this place, and even if they did, I doubt they
    would know what to do with my creations.

    Despite the fact that the outside of the building was shiny
    black marble, the inside is pure ivory white. Several young
    scientists are conversing in a corner, in what appears to be
    a reception area which is sparingly used. Several hallways
    can be seen leading off to different areas.

    ASH
    Whoa...the Continuum?

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    As you've traveled this island, I am certain you
    have witnessed many forms of magical and
    technological hybrids...

    NYLA
    You are the one to thank for most of them.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    Most, but those were designed by me when I
    was a child. Simple magics for simple devices.
    This way...

    They walk down the furthest hall to the left, and enter a giant laboratory area. Various scientists
    with clipboards are walking around. Mistress Mowavah continues on, leading them through
    a maze of various hallways and small rooms. They glimpse wondrous inventions with untold
    intentions...although one appeared to be a dream recorder.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    As a child, I dreamed of exploring the world,
    but as I grew older I realized Ganymede is
    where I belong. However, if I did decide to
    travel the world....I'd do it in this...

    Mistress Mowavah stops abruptly and elegantly waves her hand to the right, motioning everyone
    to look to their right. A computer, five times the size of a human, connected to a network of
    smaller computers. These computers are connected to a large wall-size monitor, as well as an
    electronic platform.

    RICHIE
    I feel like I'm in a science-fiction story.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    Oh deary, there's nothing fictional about it.
    Allow me to introduce y'all to one of my finer
    inventions...the Mowavah Time Weaver.

    ASH
    Mowavah Time Weaver?

    RICHIE
    Is it like the portal we used to arrive here?

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    Oh hardly. Essentially, dearies, the power
    to physically teleport you three off this island
    in a conventional way is all but elusive at this
    point. Too many variables you couldn't
    imagine, like the mysterious psychic properties
    that surround this island.

    GARY
    Well, I don't get it. How else can we get home?

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    The Mowavah Time Weaver was designed
    to get around these variables. You see,
    fate and destiny are very powerful...and
    I have found a way to work with both.

    RICHIE
    You can change peoples' fates and destinies?

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    Sort of. What this does, is go back and
    change someone's fate, then sends the
    person forward to merge with their proper
    destiny. It's very intricate.

    GARY
    It sounds like you are talking about time travel...
    changing the past.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    No, no...not really. The Fates don't get into
    the whole changing of the past. Think of it more
    like...painting over the past.

    ASH
    I don't understand.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    What brought you three to Ganymede in the first place?

    RICHIE
    A battle between Team Rocket's Wobbuffet and an
    Unown. A teleportation attack grew in magnetude
    and struck us.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    Well, The Mowavah Time Weaver will essentially
    'paint' over this incident. The outcome will be different
    to anyone else to witnessed it inside their memories.

    ASH
    You mean like Brock and May? They were there when
    we vanished.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    When you return, in their minds, you will have never left.
    So don't expect any welcome back parties.

    GARY
    So how can they remember us if we really weren't there.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    This is one of the more mystical properties of the Mowavah
    Time Weaver. You see, countless parallel universes exsist
    and we have the technology to crack a sliver into the omniverse
    and peer inside. What we do is, call on Fate to determine
    what your paths *would have been*...and shadow versions
    of yourselves are 'painted in' and when you are finally sent
    home, you incorporate yourself into this altered life.

    RICHIE
    Oh my goodness, this is very complicated.

    GARY
    So will we have the memories of these...shadow usses?

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    Yes, that's one of the features my colleague decided
    to install. So that perhaps a very traumatic experience
    can be forgotten.

    GARY
    What? No!!!

    RICHIE
    We don't want to lose our memories...

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    But the alternative could be dangerous!

    RICHIE
    Dangerous?

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    The moment you arrive back home, your
    heads would suddenly be filled with memories
    you yourselves did not experience. It would
    be overwhelming in the very least...most likely
    it could be lethal.

    GARY
    Oh...

    RICHIE
    So we would forget everything we did here?

    ASH
    I would go back to being alone again...

    GARY
    Richie and I won't even remember each other.

    OLD MAN'S VOICE
    Mowa-VAH!!!!!

    Everyone turns abruptly...and sees Oscar, the wise old psychic. He's
    wearing a different Hawaiian-esque shirt, and this time is donning a fisherman's
    cap.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    Oscar! What a delightful treat!

    Oscar gives Mistress Mowavah a look, and grins.

    OSCAR
    I had a dream you were going to send these boys back last night.

    Mistress Mowavah's eyes twinkle.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    Oh, was it a success?

    OSCAR
    No!

    Mistress Mowavah gasps, not expecting that answer.

    NYLA
    What did you see?

    Oscar flaps his left arm loosely, every bit the old timer.

    OSCAR
    It's not what I saw, young man, it's what I know. First
    of all, like I told you...you need to actually use that
    scanning equipment I designed.

    The old woman sighs loudly.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    That old hunk o' junk can't even map out brain waves.

    OSCAR
    You listen missy, in case you've forgotten....I've kicked
    your mystic behind since I was a hunky seventeen year old
    and you were a scrawny eleven year old who didn't know
    the difference between a Wiccan-type and a Warlock-type.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    *AGAIN* with the past. You sure do love bringing those
    times up...perhaps because you used to fancy me?

    OSCAR
    And *AGAIN* with bringing up my alleged "attraction"
    to you. Did you ever find *one* mind-reader to verify
    that?

    Mistress Mowavah smirks.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    If I recall correctly, we shared an intimate time together.

    OSCAR
    That was over fourty years ago. I was young and naive,
    barely fifty...ANYWAYS you are once again trying to
    evade the issue. Now go ahead, use my scanner.

    Mistress Mowavah sighs and hollors out.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    PENELOPE!

    Within moments a spunky young scientist with a bright smile practically bounces up to them.

    PENELOPE
    Hi everyone! I'm Dr. Penelope Evans but you can call
    me Penelope!

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    Please bring me the iso-polaric scanner.

    PENELOPE
    Right away!

    Oscar takes his steely gaze away from Mowavah and looks over to Ash, who has been
    eyeing him the entire time.

    OSCAR
    Hello young man.

    ASH
    Uh....hi!

    OSCAR
    So you want to become a Pokemon Master.

    ASH
    Yeah! Yeah, I do!

    OSCAR
    In your mind, what is a Pokemon Master?

    ASH
    Someone who has the strongest Pokemon and
    can beat anybody else in a Pokemon battle.

    OSCAR
    If that is what you think you will never...ever...
    become one.

    Ash is shocked.

    ASH
    What!?! But Professor Oak always...

    OSCAR
    Ah yes, I am aware of Samuel Oak. You
    and he are not so different...and while he
    *is* a very brilliant man...he has the
    unfortunate luck of hailing from Kanto...
    a country which even now is only
    just beginning to understand the true
    power behind Pokemon.

    ASH
    So what am I doing wrong?

    OSCAR
    I wish I could tell you...your so uki it breaks
    my heart to see you anything but happy.

    ASH
    Huh?

    OSCAR
    Don't worry. You have the right idea...traveling
    around on foot. Meeting people, learning new
    things, taking on entirely new ideas and I have
    a feeling that when you do return home, you
    three will help bring about a new era in Kanto...
    most certainly in Pallet Town.

    ASH
    But becoming a Pokemon Master...

    OSCAR
    Who do you look up to Ash?

    ASH
    Huh?

    OSCAR
    At night, when you think of the most
    powerful man on Earth...your template
    for what a Pokemon master would be...
    who do you think of.

    Gary and Richie both look over to Ash expectantly...each certain Ash will say his name.

    ASH
    That's easy...Lance!

    Gary and Richie both fall to the ground. Oscar closes his eyes and places his index
    fingers to his temples.

    OSCAR
    Lance...ah yes, I know of whom you speak.
    He's somewhat of a celebrity where you
    come from, right? Yes...I'm getting images
    of a man who *does* have a rapport with
    Pokemon...

    ASH
    Yeah! He commands them with ease!

    OSCAR
    Well, it's not so much that he commands them...
    he prefers to be in their company...rather than
    fellow humans...hmmm, seems the last time he tried
    human companionship...*someone* managed to
    scare him right back to his Dragonite.

    Richie steps forward, grinning when he sees Oscar staring directly at him.

    RICHIE
    No way...Lance? Pink Triangle Head Lance?
    No way is he a tough guy. I dominatrixed his
    pansy *** so hard he was screaming for more
    in a high pitch squeal. He's a misanthope?

    Gary, Ash, Nyla, Caleb, Oscar, and Mistress Mowavah all stare at Richie for several moments
    before they sweatdrop simultaneously. Richie sees this and shrugs innocently.

    RICHIE
    So Lance is your hero?

    ASH
    Uh huh. And you...*got* with him?

    RICHIE
    Yes, repeatedly. I think five times in one night.

    Once again, everyone is sweatdropping.

    OSCAR
    *ANYWAYS*...Lance is a powerful trainer indeed, but
    he's not a Pokemon Master. Someday you'll understand.

    ***

    Elsewhere, Team Rocket is prowling around in one of the smaller
    labs. Jessie and James are sporting lab coats and glasses.

    JESSIE
    This place...is a joke!

    JAMES
    I haven't seen one priceless antique or
    rare Pokemon yet.

    MEOWTH
    Just a lotta lousy machines.

    JESSIE
    With no instruction manuals.

    JAMES
    Too bad Mondo's not still around. I
    bet he'd be able to figure these
    contraptions out.

    VOICE
    Hello there! Are you three lost?

    Team Rocket shreik momentarily, and spin around to see a very
    hunky lab technitian smiling at them.

    JESSIE
    Um...well....

    James smiles seductively at the man and steps forward.

    JAMES
    Yes, I'm afraid we got ourselves completely turned around.
    Silly us. And you are?

    AUSTIN
    I'm Austin, a lab technitian here. You two must be the replacement
    scientists we sent for...I'm glad to see you're both so early.

    James nods.

    JAMES
    Oh, I'm sure we'll be able to please
    you even more. At least, I know I
    will.

    Austin offers James a coy smile, and motions for them to follow him.

    AUSTIN
    We are conducting experiments on how Magnetic fields can effect
    psychic fields.

    JESSIE
    Ugh...

    JAMES
    How absultely thrilling! Can opposites attract?

    Austin smirks at James.

    AUSTIN
    I guess we'll see.

    ***

    Penelope has set up the Iso-polaric scanner, and Ash is sitting underneath it, looking blankly forward.

    ASH
    Will this hurt?

    PENELOPE
    Why no! It's rather outdated, however.
    Scanners from this time period tended
    to result in a slight tingling sensation.

    She slips the scanner on, and a blue ultraviolet beam hits Ash's head. It moves around
    a moment, then stops. A paper is printed out of the side, it dings, then it powers down.

    PENELOPE
    All done.

    ASH
    Whoa, that was quick.

    MISTRESS MOWAVA
    And useless, I'm sure. Let's see what it says...

    She picks up the paper and reads it over.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    Oh dear...

    OSCAR
    HA! Told you! Let me guess...allowing your
    Mowavah Wave ...er....your Mowavah Time
    Oven.....er, no, that's not it....whatever,
    if you erased Ash's memory....you'll be
    causing serious brain damage that
    he won't recover from.

    ASH
    What?

    Mistress Mowavah frowns as she continues to read.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    It would appear that erasing your memory
    would be unwise...because someone else
    already did once.

    Richie nods.

    RICHIE
    Tommy...

    Mistress Mowavah shakes her head 'no' and waves her hand flippiantly.
    Oscar, looking disturbed, places his fingers to his temples again and closes his eyes.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    No, it was a Pokemon. Very powerful.
    I don't know what transpired, but something
    so tragic happoned to Ash that this
    Pokemon felt it would be best to erase
    all memories of meeting it.

    ASH
    No way! When?!?

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    The memory engram blockage is...fairly old.
    I'd say....between five and six years ago.

    RICHIE
    Kanto...

    GARY
    Back then I only saw one powerful Pokemon,
    and it almost killed *me* at the Gym.

    RICHIE
    Oh my goodness, yes. I, too, lost to it. It
    made me so angry, but since I've come to realize
    that only legendary Pokemon can have that power.

    OSCAR
    Yes, yes! All three of you have met this Pokemon.
    And yes, both of you were lucky to make it out
    of that Gym alive. Ash...you weren't so lucky....

    ASH
    Huh? I won that Gym's badge...

    OSCAR
    You won the badge, but do you remember visiting
    another island not too long after.

    ASH
    No, not really....unless you mean the Orange...

    OSCAR
    No, I don't. Ash...how should I put this...
    you died. Not in a paltry "stopped breathing"
    way either....you were completely, 100% maggot food...
    although the nature of your death would
    have left the maggots rather hungry....

    ASH
    WHAT???!?!?

    Gary and Richie both let their jaws gape open. Shi, too, is shocked.

    GARY
    Ashy-boy was *dead*?!?

    RICHIE
    No way...

    OSCAR
    I'm trying to gain an image of....ah! It was
    Mew....and Mew?

    RICHIE
    Mew? Ash, you were killed by the most
    mysterious Pokemon of them all...

    Oscar is still caught up in his reading to hear Richie.

    OSCAR
    No, it's wasn't....strange....it *was* Mew and Mew....but
    the second was different....created....young....it's a clone!
    Ash, you saved it's soul. You saved Mew. You saved us all.

    The room is silent for a moment.

    GARY
    How did he....return to life.

    RICHIE
    A ressurection?

    OSCAR
    Yes....yes a ressurection. Most definately.
    Mew....er, Mewtwo I suppose...wiped your
    memory of this...I don't think it was for
    your benefit.

    ASH
    I died.....

    Ash is silent for awhile...Richie and Gary both approach him for comfort.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    Well, the good news is you three won't be losing
    your memories then. I just pray that the trauma
    of having two sets of memories won't be too
    severe.

    Richie looks at her with a mach-coy expression.

    RICHIE
    I'm *sure* we can manage.

    PENELOPE
    It's also varied with each person. Some of you
    will retain more memories, some of you will
    will only get flashes...with any luck you will
    be able to piece your missing lives together
    based on these memory flashes...

    Ash pets a happy Shi who has rested on his sholder.

    ASH
    Besides, I could *never* leave my Shi behind!

    Shu nuzzles his head into Ash's.

    SHI
    Shiii shiiishiii!*
    (You are just perfect!)

    PENELOPE
    So, if you three will follow me, I'll show you
    to your room...

    GARY
    Room?

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    Oh, I didn't explain the third part of the
    Mowavah Time Weaver. You see...
    this aspect is a bit more...unpredictable.

    GARY
    Oh good.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    It's not dangerous, per se. You
    are transported into your shadow
    self...but when is a huge question.

    RICHIE
    Okay...we teleport out today and wind
    up back in our old lives how long from now...

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    It could be days from now...or it could be weeks.

    GARY
    Weeks?!?

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    Or months even. And it might be
    different for all three of you...you
    could arrive months apart from each other.

    RICHIE
    We'd be going into the future?

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    Most likely. And since it's
    likely you three won't see each other
    for awhile...I figured you might
    like some time with each other.
    While our guest quarters aren't
    lavish, you'll find them comfy.

    Ash turns to Gary and Richie.

    ASH
    Whoa, this is intense.

    GARY
    We'll be so far apart from each other.

    RICHIE
    But at least we'll be back where we belong...
    and away from Tommy.

    Richie turns to PENELOPE and smiles.

    RICHIE
    Thank you, PENELOPE. I think some time
    alone would be perfect.

    PENELOPE nods and begins to lead them away.

    OSCAR
    Richard....

    Richie turns and walks back to them, his face reflecting interest.

    OSCAR
    I realize you have...expectations...but please
    remember, Ash may have a lot of experience
    when it comes to sexual relationships with
    men, but he *is* truly an innocent. For
    Ash...sex is a way to get to know male trainers
    he likes...he has *no* experience when it comes
    to love, or being in a relationship.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    Ash's soul is highly innocent. We lose strength as we
    lose our innocence. You see innocence
    is the only gift we're given in life. All else must be fought
    for. In that innocence lies purity...and in that purity...
    lies strength.

    RICHIE
    What are you saying?

    OSCAR
    Just be gentle with Ash's heart...Gary's too for that matter.

    RICHIE
    Thanks for the relationship counseling but I could never
    hurt my boyfriends. I'm so sure.

    Oscar nods.

    OSCAR
    Of course. All the same....remember our words.

    Richie offers them a nod, and takes off to catch up with the others.

    ***

    Jessie sighs with complete boredom as she stares at electromagnetic
    schematics. Meowth is asleep on a table. James emerges from an office
    with a disheveled Austin.

    JAMES
    Well, it seems the full metal piping does
    cause extreme magnetism.

    Austin lets out a long breath and wipes his sweaty brow.

    AUSTIN
    Wow, you just kept going.

    JAMES
    I'm highly motivated.

    Jessie growls and barks loudly.

    JESSIE
    EXCUSE ME, THIS HAS TO BE THE
    MOST BORING ASSIGNMENT! DON'T
    YOU HAVE ANYTHING REMOTELY
    INTERESTING?

    Austin thinks a moment.

    AUSTIN
    Well, they're sending three trainers to the
    other side of the world soon....you could
    probably assist with that, I suppose...

    James and Jessie exchange glances and smirk.

    ***
    PENELOPE walks into the guest quarters first, followed by the
    three trainers behind her.

    PENELOPE
    Well, this is it. There's a jacuzzi spa in
    the next room. Have a relaxful time!

    PENELOPE winks, and shows herself out.

    ASH
    I can't believe we're going to be away from
    each other for so long!

    GARY
    Possibly. I mean, the moment we're back
    we should all arrange to meet back up
    as soon as possible.

    RICHIE
    My thoughts exactly. It'll be kind of rough
    but I think we should be fine in the end.

    GARY
    Of course...there's always the possibility we
    stuck around after Team Rocket gets blasted
    off.

    Richie smiles.

    RICHIE
    Yeah! I always swore next time I saw Ash we
    would stay together.

    GARY
    And I...I don't know. I was hoping on evolving my
    Omanyte to Omastar before I saw him next...but yeah...

    RICHIE
    But we didn't really like each other all that much in the beginning.
    I mean, I thought you were hot...

    GARY
    Yeah, I definately liked you, but you drove me nuts!
    I mean, first you bring up my sister Mai...then
    you make the moves on Ash....little did I know...

    ASH
    All that matters is that we're together now. Even
    if you both left back for Kanto and Johto, we'll
    meet up!

    RICHIE
    In Hoenn?

    ASH
    Actually, I was thinking Pallet Town? I was planning
    on going there after I win the Hoenn Championships.

    RICHIE
    Fine then. I'd like to see your mother again. I like her.

    GARY
    Uh...it's going to be kind of strange introducing you both
    as my boyfriends to gramps.

    ASH
    My mom really likes both of you. She always wonders
    when I spoke to either of you last. Professor Oak
    cares about you lots Gary, I'm sure he'll understand.

    RICHIE
    We've been friends since I saved him from abduction.
    I don't see a problem there.

    Gary half-smiles.

    GARY
    Ya think? He doesn't even know I like guys...

    RICHIE
    Oh believe me, he does. He tried convincing me
    to go to your lab and *meet* you, but at the time
    my mind was set on Ash....and Tracey, but he was
    a momentary distraction.....*and* getting the latest
    updates on your sister Mai's latest workings....

    Gary drops his duffel bag limply, completely in shock.

    GARY
    Gramps tried setting me up with you???!!!!!?!?

    Richie smiles meekly.

    RICHIE
    I thought you knew....

    Gary looks down with amazement swept over his face. Ash sympathetically
    raises his arm and rubs Gary's back. Richie smiles and removes his vest. He
    then unzips his jumper, and begins walking to the other two.

    RICHIE
    Okay, enough of this.

    Richie walks up to them and grabs both of their arms, leading them to the bed.
    With one quick yank, both fall effortlessly. Ash giggles, and Gary smiles...laying back
    with his arms behind his neck.

    GARY
    I think I know what Richie wants to do.

    Ash smiles widely and removes his jacket, throwing it across the room.

    ASH
    Awesome, I've never been with two guys at once...

    Richie kisses Ash quickly, removing his red hat and flipping it away.
    He then breaks away, smiling as he removes his green jumper.

    RICHIE
    It's a Ménage ?* trois.

    Ash, who was removing his black undershirt, stops midway with a
    look of true confusion.

    ASH
    What's that? A Pokemon?

    Richie laughs and helps Ash yank his shirt off, ruffling his raven-black hair.
    Gary watches with a calm demeaner as Ash stands on the bed and drops
    his blue jeans, revealing his white underwear.

    GARY
    Beautiful...

    Gary turns and sees Richie is now only in his dark green leather shorts.
    He laughs with delight and is sitting up in moments, allowing his shirt to
    fly off, and unbuckling his jeans. Richie goes to Gary, grabs Ash and yanks
    him into a tender threeway kiss. All three melt into each other's arms, which
    go from exploration to support. Pikachu looks over to Sparky.

    PIKACHU
    Pika pika!*
    (*Hey if they're gonna do this stuff, why don't we relax in the jacuzzi spa?)

    SPARKY
    Piiika!*
    (*Awesome! Let's do it!)

    Two two Pikachu run for the bathroom, while Shi sits himself onto the bedpost.

    SHI
    Shiishii!*
    (*So kawaii!)

    Ash motions for Gary to stand, and he in turn falls to his knees, tugging at Richie's
    leather shorts and Gary's heart-shaped boxers. Richie and Gary kiss, and gasp in
    pleasure as Ash orally stimulates them both, sometimes simultaneously.

    RICHIE
    I love it...

    Gary gets a small smirk on his face, and kneels down next to Ash, and joins him
    in pleasuring the moaning trainer. After several minutes of this, Ash is on his feet
    and removing his underwear, then props himself onto all fours on the bed.

    ASH
    I want you *both* to...you know...

    Gary and Richie look at each other.

    RICHIE
    Who would you like to bang you first?

    Ash laughs quickly and wiggles his behind.

    ASH
    Both......at the same time....please!

    Gary and Richie both sweatdrop.

    GARY
    Are you sure?!?

    ASH
    YES!!!!

    Within moments both trainers are searching through their backpacks for lube. However,
    neither can find any. Gary looks around in desperation while Richie scolds himself
    for not planning ahead. Ash gets a glint in his eyes.

    ASH
    I guess you two are going to have to improvise!

    He wiggles his behind again, and his boyfriends turn to each other once again, and after
    a silent moment of understanding, both shrug and hop over to the bed. After a rather
    steamy rimjob on Gary and Richie's behalf, Gary props himself underneath Ash, and Richie
    goes behind them.

    ASH
    All right! I've wanted *this* for so long now! Please do it!

    Richie sets it up for double entry, and within moments Gary watches Ash's face as his eyes
    close, and he grits his teeth with pain, letting high-pitched moans escape. After a minute
    or two, both guys are pumping away, causing all three to become sweaty and silent. Richie
    makes eye contact with Shi several minutes in, and he can see a hypnotizing gaze of lust
    over the Pokemon's pace. Ash shudders in extacy.

    ASH
    I love you both so....much....

    Without any provocation on his behalf, Ash finds himself reaching climax from the sheer
    sensation he is feeling, and he announces it loudly, which cause Richie and Gary to both
    pick up their paces to powerhouse thrusts and all three close their eyes and cry out in unison.
    Then, a breathless Ash collapses onto Gary's chest, and Richie collapses onto Ash's back.
    Shi floats down and kisses them all on the forehead.

    SHI
    Shiiiiiii!! Shi?!?*
    (*I love you guys! Hiroshi! Shigeru! Satoshi-chan! Huh?!?)

    Suddenly, Shi begins to sparkle and shimmer. Ash gasps and jumps up, causing a suddenly wide-eyed
    Richie to fly up and landing off the bed, breaking the romantic mood immediately. Gary sits up and turns,
    gasping as he sees Shi cause the entire room to light up. Richie, rubbing his head, mirrors their expression.

    RICHIE
    Shi?

    Shi begins to float in mid-air as it turns brighter, and then it can't even be seen. After a moment the light
    begins to subside, and all three lovers approach the Pokemon while still in the nude. Finally the light
    is gone and, indeed, Shi has evolved. He is now somewhat larger, weighing about five more pounds.
    Losing some of it's sphinx-like qualities, and taking on some features of a lion and a canine. His
    face is more expressionate, and he offers the three a very wide, very large grin. Within moments
    Ash is reaching for his Pokedex, and Richie and Gary are reaching for theirs.

    DEXTETTE
    ShiShi, the Lion Dog Guardian Pokemon. ShiShi
    is the evolved form of Shi. It's psychic abilities
    at this time remain unchartable.

    DEXTER
    ShiShi, the Lion Dog Guardian Pokemon and
    one of the most rarest sighted in history. It
    is said that a ShiShi is never lonely and can
    communicate with the ones it loves.

    SHISHI
    ShiiiiiiiShiiiiiiii*
    (*Amazing! My head is...filling with knowledge! I feel I know you three even *more* intimately than before!)

    Ash runs to ShiShi, and bear hugs him with joyous delight.

    ASH
    ShiShi! Awesome!

    ShiShi happily causes all three boyfriends to begin floating in the air. Richie smiles widely and laughs happily.
    Gary, however, isn't as thrilled with floating mid-air, and waves his arms frantically.

    SHISHI
    ShhiiiiiiiiShiiiiiiiii! ShiShii.*
    (*Wow.....I'm just.....you three have *no* idea how much more I know now. I can *remember* the paralell
    universes....the alternate dimensions....all of them....every single one that the four of us exsisted in.....
    and now......I can remember your direct past lives?)

    Richie floats over to ShiShi, and pets him lovingly.

    RICHIE
    You are such an amazing Pokemon, I'm proud you partly belong to me.

    ShiShi bear-hugs a surprised Richie.

    SHISHI
    ShiShi!*
    (I love you Richie! I'm proud you partly own me!)

    Gary is floating near the closet, holding the door to gain his composure.

    GARY
    ShiShi, please....I just got laid, I don't wanna float through the air naked.

    ShiShi smiles and lowers the three to the ground.

    GARY
    Thanks.

    Gary moves to the bed and retrieves his boxer shorts, placing them on quickly. Richie merely sits on the edge
    of the bed, watching Ash play with ShiShi. Ash spins around several times, laughing and chasing the happy
    Pokemon around the room.

    ***

    Mistress Mowavah continues to enter data into a computer terminal hooked to the Mowavah Time Weaver.
    Nyla and Caleb are helping PENELOPE power up the platform. Jessie and James are apparently cataloging
    anomolies from a monitor nearby.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    I anticipate we will be ready to hook
    the three up within the hour, begin
    the neurological scan. The quantum
    polaric sweep has already been
    initiated, and so far we've tracked....

    Mistress Mowavah grows silent and she removes her sunglasses, showing her widening eyes.

    PENELOPE
    Mistress?

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    ....over one hundred and seventeen thousand
    parallel universes contain at least two of them.
    And the sweep is far from over.

    PENELOPE stands and runs over to the computer, leaving Nyla and Caleb to follow with interest.

    PENELOPE
    That's four times the amount of anybody
    else we've swept.

    CALEB
    They must have ancient souls.

    PENELOPE
    That's....can someone share their essence with *that*
    many other counterparts?

    CALEB
    The older your soul, the more chi you natually build.
    All three seem lively enough to me.

    NYLA
    It makes me wonder...all those parallel Nyla's out there...

    CALEB
    And they probably all annoy the parallel Caleb's.

    Nyla smiles innocently at Caleb.

    NYLA
    Only in the ways they like to be bothered, I'm sure.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    I'll begin scanning for compatable
    universes now...save a lot of time.

    CALEB
    I'm sure all three of them will be
    glad to hear that.

    NYLA
    They want to return home so badly.

    Jessie looks over to James, whispering in his ear.

    JESSIE
    James! Did you hear that?
    That's what they are going to use...
    that machine there!

    JAMES
    We should probably let them know
    we need to return too...it looks like
    they need to scan us or something.

    Meowth, in a lab coat, hops up.

    MEOWTH
    I've got a betta idea! We nab
    this machine and take it to
    da boss!

    Jessie and James both sweatdrop.

    JESSIE
    Explain...

    MEOWTH
    Simple! We set the machine to send
    us back...then we quickly nab it and
    place it on that platform with us and
    before you know it we're home! Den,
    Team Rocket scientists can study it
    and before you know it, da Boss will
    be able to travel to Ganymede anytime
    he wants! Or anywhere!

    JAMES
    I don't know Meowth. The more I
    learn about this technology the more
    I think it wouldn't work.

    JESSIE
    Still, it would be a very big breakthrough
    for Team Rocket. Even if we can't
    get it to work again, the technology
    would definately give our daft scientists
    new ideas. I side with Meowth on this.
    Come on.

    Jessie and James both walk up to the group.

    JESSIE
    Mistress Mihula....

    Mistress Mowavah turns and shoots fire from her mouth.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    Mistress MO-WAVE-UH

    Jessie smiles pleasantly while James looks on in trepidation.

    JESSIE
    Of course...we are done cataloging these anomolies and
    we have some *terrible* news.

    PENELOPE
    What is it?

    Jessie giggles to herself and smirks. The Team Rocket music begins.

    JESSIE
    I'm afraid you need to prepare for trouble since the only anomoly is us!

    JAMES
    You should also make it double and cut out all the fuss!

    Jessie throws off her labcoat, followed by James.

    JESSIE
    To protect the world from devistation!

    JAMES
    To unite all people within our nation.

    JESSIE
    To denounce the evils of truth and love!

    JAMES
    To extend our reach to the stars above!

    Jessie winks with a playful pose.

    JESSIE
    Jessie!

    James raises a rose to his face.

    JAMES
    James.

    Jessie and James strike victory poses against the Misty Valley setting, a giant "R" is propped up in the background.

    JESSIE
    Team Rocket, blast off at the speed of light!

    JAMES
    So surrender now or prepare to fight, fight FIGHT!

    Meowth hops up, his nails extended.

    MEOWTH
    Meowth, that's right!

    Wobbuffet pops up, saluting.

    WOBBUFFET
    Wobb-u-FFET!*
    (*Make that double right!)

    Chimecho floats down serenely.

    CHIMECHO
    Chime Chime CHIIIIME.....*
    (Chime Chime CHIIIIME.....)

    CALEB/NYLA/MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    Team Rocket!

    JESSIE
    Correct, I'm glad our motto makes an impact.

    JAMES
    Now you can make an even bigger impact
    and just hand us over this Time Weaver!

    Mistress Mowavah is angered while Nyla
    and Caleb grab their Pokeballs.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    You would never understand
    how to use it, why would you
    want it?

    JESSIE
    We'll handle the minutia later,
    grandma, but you can save a lot of
    time and energy by letting us
    teleport away with it...you can keep
    the platform!

    PENELOPE
    You just can't! Why, doing that
    would tear a hole in the space
    time continuum.

    James nods and sighs with shrugged sholders.

    JAMES
    I figured as much. Jessie, this
    is an uphill battle. I don't want
    to do this...

    Jessie turns to James with fire in her eyes.

    JESSIE
    What?!?

    JAMES
    I haven't taken advanced science since I was
    fourteen...but if we open the space time
    continuum, we could wind up in any number
    of parallel universes and I don't think that's
    wise.

    Jessie ***** her head to the side, completely not understanding what James is talking about,
    but does see the sincerity in his eyes. She nods once.

    JESSIE
    Okay....

    Meowth frowns.

    MEOWTH
    That was underwhelming.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    You all must return as well. Now if
    you're done trying to play marauder,
    I'll get you ready as well.

    Jessie and James glance to each other.

    JESSIE
    ....okay.

    ***

    In the jacuzzi spa, Gary sighs with serenity as the jet streams hit his back. Richie and Ash are happily
    relaxing side by side, their heads resting against each other. Pikachu and Sparky are asleep, curled up
    near ShiShi, who simply stares at his masters with every bit the afterglow they are feeling.

    NARRATOR
    Recouperating after a long day filled with
    wild emotional releases, our heroes have
    no idea that their next adventure is right
    upon them!

    We open on Ash, Gary and Richie as they walk down a hallway, all three looking well-rested
    and exhuberating an afterglow. ShiShi floats next to Pikachu, who is happy as well.

    NARRATOR
    After some needed R & R, our heroes are
    about to embark on a great journey which
    will lead them back home.

    They near the entrance to the lab, stop, and smile at each other silently.

    ASH
    I love you both.

    Richie grabs both Ash's and Gary's hands.

    RICHIE
    Ash...Gary...no matter what happens we
    will be together again.

    Gary squeezes their hands.

    GARY
    I do love you both...with all my heart.

    They tenderly exchange a threeway kiss and enter. All three look shocked.

    NARRATOR
    However, nobody said the ride would be smoothe....

    Standing before them are Team Rocket. Jessie giggles and James winks.

    POKEMON: <3SHI

    CHAPTER TWELVE: SEND MY REGUARDS TO GANYMEDE

    ASH
    (voice)
    Send my reguards....to Ganymede!!!!!!

    ***

    ASH/RICHIE/GARY
    Team Rocket!!!!

    JESSIE
    Yes we are, so prepare for trouble if you really must know...

    JAMES
    And make it double so we can get on with the show...

    RICHIE
    How did you guys get here?

    ASH
    Yeah, and what are you going to try?

    Jessie looks shocked, and raises her hands to her chest.

    JESSIE
    Why, how could you say something
    so horrible! We are merely in the same
    boat as you are....lost....hoping to
    get home.

    GARY
    Where's Mistress Mowavah? Huh?

    JAMES
    She's....running an errand?

    MEOWTH
    Yeah, she went wit da others to
    look over some data.

    ASH
    Yeah right!!! You three did something
    to them!

    Jessie rolls her eyes.

    JESSIE
    Come on James, we don't need to
    listen to this...When Madam MooMoo
    returns...

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    It's MOWAVAH!!!!!!!!!!!

    Jessie jumps in the air, followed by James and Meowth. Mistress Mowavah storms past Jessie and sets a stack
    of papers onto a table. Nyla, Penelope and Caleb follow with various diagrams.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    I see you three are looking better...good...
    we are ready to begin.

    ASH
    You shouldn't trust Team Rocket...they should
    totally leave before they wreck everything.

    Nyla looks up from a schematic.

    NYLA
    You don't seriously think we'd
    allow them to remain here, do you?

    JAMES
    Hey, the feeling's mutual, buddy.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    No, no, no...I'm afraid you all must
    travel together. None of you truly
    belong here.

    ***

    Mistress Mowavah has hooked up Ash, Gary, Richie, Pikachu, Sparky, ShiShi, Jessie, James and Meowth to the platform.

    CALEB
    Well, I do hope that you all
    have a safe journey. On behalf
    of Ganymede I think it's been
    an interesting...

    Nyla sees Caleb is at a loss for words and picks up.

    NYLA
    Cultural exchange...you've
    taught me a lot about what it's
    like on the other side of the
    world.

    CALEB
    And since we've swapped Pokedex
    information, scientists around the island
    are awash with inspiration once again
    and it will take years to decipher
    all of it.

    MEOWTH
    And you all know not to mess with
    Team Rocket!

    CALEB
    I get the intuition that when the day comes
    that Ganymede does finally reconnect
    with the outside world...Team Rocket will
    have crumbled into nothing more than dust.

    Jessie and James both seem shocked by Caleb's cold demeaner. Nyla smiles and caresses his sholder.

    NYLA
    Easy there, tough guy.

    RICHIE
    Oh my goodness, you two really need to
    go out together.

    Nyla and Caleb both seem purplexed by Richie's statement.

    CALEB
    You mean us? Um....

    NYLA
    We've been friends for a very long time.

    ASH
    Gary and I have been friends since
    we were very young and we're totally
    different! Richie and I were friends the
    second we like, met! I think you two
    would look cute together!!!

    Caleb blushes, and Nyla notices it...and offers him a confused look.

    PENELOPE
    Okay, ShiShi's destination has been calibrated
    to appear with either Ash, Richie, or Gary...
    I couldn't narrow the confinement beam
    any more...I had to use a lot of bandwidth
    to attempt to match up Pikachu with Ash
    and Sparky with Richie.

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    Well, I think we are just about ready to begin.
    Time has been woven over...nobody back
    home even knows you've been here the
    whole time.

    JESSIE
    Does this mean that...a Shadow Jessie
    took my place at the grand festival?
    What if her Shadowy incompetance
    costs *me* the winning spot?

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    You're shadow self will follow how
    fate should have played out 85%
    of the time....

    RICHIE
    So there will be some unknown
    variations, right?

    MISTRESS MOWAVAH
    Perhaps. Perhaps you're life will
    have dramatically changed, but
    most likely not, dearie.

    PENELOPE
    Okay! It's time! The stars are
    aligned within acceptable
    parameters, I am initiating
    displacement protocals.

    The Time Weaver begins to hum loudly, and the platform shimmers with gold and silver splashes of light.
    Ash nervously looks between Richie and Gary, while Team Rocket are terrified. Caleb and Nyla approach the
    front of the platform, Penelope and Mistress Mowavah arrive moments later.

    CALEB
    Good luck to you all.

    ASH
    Thanx so much everyone!
    We'll never forget all you've
    done for us!

    RICHIE
    I think you two need to
    actually give in and
    on a date, quickly.

    Nyla offers Richie a wink.

    NYLA
    Hey, who knows...right?

    Suddenly, a smiling Richie is zapped by a white light, and moments later he's gone. Seconds later Meowth
    is gone, followed by ShiShi, then James, then Gary, then Pikachu, then Jessie, then Ash, and finally
    Sparky. Nyla looks over to Caleb.

    NYLA
    Well, you are hot....

    ***

    Whiteness, pure as virgin snow. The sound of lightning, crackling at an uneven yet swift pace, can be heard.

    ***

    Sableye casts a Shadow Ball, and sends it at the three boys. Ash instictevly places each arm in front of Gary and Ash, for what minute protection it could provide. He closes his eyes and grits his teeth...

    Suddenly, Paul steps in front with Unown.

    PAUL
    Unown, Power Adaptor! Turn that Shadow Ball into something else!

    UNOWN
    Unoooooooooooooowwwwn!*
    (*From the Power of my ancestors, I call to thee. Send me my rightful power and envelop me! Take this attack and make it new, send it flying and see it through. Transform the Shadow Ball into.......Psychic Shut-Down, and make my enemies so catatonic they can do nothing but frown!!)

    Unown completely soaks up the Shadow Ball, and begins glowing brightly. Then, it begins spinning rapidly, and unleashes it's Psychic Shut-Down attack randomly...at Jessie and James and Meowth, who has just returned with Pikachu.

    JESSIE & JAMES & MEOWTH
    AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

    Jessie instictevly throws Wobbuffet in front.

    JESSIE
    Wobbuffet, prove yourself superior!

    Wobbuffet heroically raises it's arm in pride.

    WOBBUFFET
    Wobba Wobba!*
    (*She actually remembered I can help! Cool!)

    The Psychic Shut-Down attack flies at Team Rocket, and Wobbuffet begins it's mirror coat....however the attack
    completely causes Wobbuffet to pass out, unable to function.

    JESSIE
    Uh....

    Paul laughs loudly and raises his fist triumphantly.

    PAUL
    Unown, you're the greatest!
    Why don't you allow everyone in
    Team Rocket to experience one of
    your more unique attacks, Psychic
    Shut-Down!

    Once again, Unown sends the attack to Team Rocket, causing Jessie, James, Meowth, Wobbuffet and Chimecho to zip through the air, until they crash into
    the Blastoise tank, which in turn explodes and causes Cassidy, Butch, Sableye, Raticate, Tentacruel, Hitmontop and Drowzee to go blasting off. Pikachu hops
    back happily to Ash.

    BUTCH/CASSIDY
    Why exactly are *WE* blasting off?

    ***

    Richie and Gary both stand, relieved that Ash...and themselves...are okay. May and Brock both come running up.

    BROCK
    Wow, that Unown is very interesting!

    MAY
    Ash! I'm so happy you and your friends are okay!

    Ash smiles.

    ASH
    Thanx May, I was really worried there for a second...

    Gary's and Richie's eyes both turn away from Ash and meet each other. Richie does not offer Gary a smile,
    nor vice-versa.

    RICHIE
    Uh....hello.

    GARY
    Hi....

    Ash immediately sweatdrops. He closes his eyes and raises his hands.

    ASH
    Uh.....so anyways....

    Richie at this point is paying no attention to Ash. If looks could kill, Richie would have murdered the taller teen.

    RICHIE
    So who exactly are *you* and how do you know Ash?

    Gary ***** his head to the side, regaining his cool. He places his hand into his pocket and closes his eyes.

    GARY
    Obviously you're not a part of the elite Pokemon circles.
    I'm Gary Oak, Pokemon Researcher extraordinare...
    and I was going to ask you the same question,
    how do *you* know my Ashy-boy?

    Upon hearing the petname "Ashy-boy", Richie grits his teeth.

    RICHIE
    So...you're Mai Oak's younger brother...too bad you have to
    live in *her* shadow....

    GARY
    I'm sorry, did you say you knew Ash....cuz he didn't mention
    you when I was doin' him during the Silver Conference.

    Richie gasps.loudly.

    RICHIE
    I was dominating him during the Indigo Plateau and I
    *don't* mean on the battle-field.

    Gary's eyes widen.

    GARY
    Aaaash! What's going on here?

    RICHIE
    Yes Ash, please do explain....

    Ash looks over to May, who is completely lost on the subject. He sighs. Brock nods once.

    BROCK
    Gary, Richie....you both know
    Ash cares a lot about you both...

    RICHIE
    Both? Ash, have you been leading me on?

    GARY
    Leading *you* on? Ashy and I have been
    *extremely* close since we were very, very
    young.

    BROCK
    Except when you were detestable to him...

    GARY
    Except when I was....HEY! I did what
    I had to do....no apologies. Ash knows
    how I feel about him and he used it
    apparently.

    Richie growls, and Gary growls louder, which causes Richie to growl even louder.

    ASH
    Please....don't get upset! I can't help it!
    I love both....

    RICHIE
    You know, Ash, I really don't want to
    hear it right now.

    GARY
    Yeah, you could have at least told
    us...we deserved at least that.

    May looks over to Brock with curiousity.

    MAY
    Who *are* these guys?

    BROCK
    Scorned lovers.

    Max pops his head out from behind May.

    MAX
    I thought Ash was staying single
    on purpose...at least that's what he
    told Steven, Skyler, Brandon, Maxwell,
    Tory, Rafe...

    There is a momentary silence as a stunned Ash can only witness the hurt and sour
    expressions of both of his boyfriends.

    GARY
    Well then, I guess that's it then...losers....

    Richie nods.

    RICHIE
    Yep. I'm so out of here. You'll never see me again Ash, goodbye.

    Richie and Gary both leave in opposite directions, leaving a distraught Ash to watch them go.
    A tear forms in his eye.

    ASH
    Oh no.....

    **Richie boards a boat, bound for Johto. He is depressed for
    most of the trip, but meets a very nice Pokemon trainer named
    Montgomery that not only has a great smile but also
    has very loose virtues. Richie ends up taking out his Ash
    issues on him, although Montgomery didn't particularly mind.
    **Richie enters the Silver Conference. He meets many friends,
    and due to his rebound nature, ends up forcibly taking out
    his frustrations on them. In the end, he comes in second
    place, Cruz falling right before it's opponent, Salamance.
    **Richie is offered a contract by the Pokemon Association to
    tour Johto, offering cash for battles. Richie agrees and
    travels to six seperate towns, marveling trainers and onlookers
    alike with his impressive skills.
    **Richie takes some time off from training to research
    tales from a villiage that was helped by a Jirachi. Richie
    ends up meeting the Jirachi, befriending it.
    **Richie captures a Sunflora and a Vileplume, which he
    names Perfect and Polite.
    **Richie helps one of his favorite libraries stay open
    after Butch and Cassidy we're ordered to take
    it over and convert into a secret Team Rocket base.
    **Richie meets an elderly woman who tells him that
    when she was a young girl, she saw where Latios
    and Latias lived...at least one of many places.
    **Richie embarks for a predetermined valley, set on
    finding the two great Pokemon. He meets two fellow
    explorers...a brainy girl named Brittany (Britty for short)
    and a scruffy yet adorable newbie trainer named Vander.
    **Britty spends several weeks trying to get Richie to ask her
    out, until she catches him getting head from a vacationing
    actor named Brad van Darn. She is angry at first, but accepts
    Richie and they become even closer friends.

    ***

    Whiteness, pure as virgin snow. The sound of lightning, crackling at an uneven yet swift pace, can be heard.

    ***

    Richie opens his blue eyes, looking with newfound awareness. He looks around, and sees that he is in a forest.
    To his left is Britty, wearing her wire-rim glasses and glossing over a map. To his right, Vander is smiling
    as he watches a Murkrow flying through the air. Sparky, too, looks somewhat mystified...and older. He is at least
    a year and a half older. He's grown at least a foot, and is somewhat lankier. His hair is actually lighter, with blonde
    highlights intruding in his auburn hair which is slightly longer. His clothes are similar to his old warbdrobe, yet even
    more stylish. His green jumper is gone. Now, he is sporting a seafoam-green shirt that is cut low enough so that his
    belly-button can be constantly seen, with the cutest little happy-trail heading to his forest-green plush-leather pants.
    His Indigo-colored hat is the only item remaining, however he has it currently attached to his belt-loop.

    RICHIE
    Huh?

    SPARKY
    Piiika?*
    (Whoa....where are we?)

    BRITTY
    Richie! Is you're head in the clouds again?

    VANDER
    I know what he's thinking about...Latios and Latias!
    We're going to find them, and I *know* Richie can
    capture them!

    Britty half-glances at Vander, hardly tolerating him.

    BRITTY
    What's on you're mind, Richie?

    Richie looks at the two people, completely at a loss for words.

    RICHIE
    Who are....where....

    Suddenly, flashes of Richie's false memories come flooding into his head.
    He grips his temples and winces in pain. Sparky mirrors the action.

    VANDER
    Richie!!!!!!

    BRITTY
    What is it?!?

    Richie looks around, then back at his friends.

    RICHIE
    Okay....you're Brittany...

    BRITTY
    Britty!

    RICHIE
    Right....and you're Vander, and we are
    looking for mysterious Pokemon.

    BRITTY
    Are you suffering from a concussion?

    RICHIE
    No, no....but I'm afraid I can't remember
    that much...er...

    Richie bites his lower lip, and turns away.

    VANDER
    This is really strange.

    Richie looks over to Sparky.

    RICHIE
    Okay, so we are back...

    Sparky nods.

    RICHIE
    And now here we are...completely
    away from Ash and Gary.

    SPARKY
    Pikachuuu*
    (*And my Pikachu! Awe man!)

    Vander has overheard.

    VANDER
    Who is Ash and Gary?

    BRITTY
    No doubt more studs on his list.
    *sigh* Why don't guys notice me?

    RICHIE
    Er....well, this is going to come as
    kind of a shock, but I can't continue
    on this journey because...

    A loud cry can be heard, and everyone turns to the sky...in a flash they see Latias. It briefly
    flashes by, soaring to what appears to be a hidden glen at the mid-point of a nearby mountain.
    Richie feels energy draining from his body as he sees this, and his eyes widen. Britty and
    Vander, however, both jump for joy.

    RICHIE
    Sparky...

    SPARKY
    Piiika....*
    (I know....how exciting!!!)

    **Gary groans when he realizes that the nearest Hoenn
    Pokemon Center has no Pokebuck exchange. He grumbles
    and calls his lab, however they are all away on research. So,
    he sighs and tracks down his grandfather, who was in the middle
    of hosting his radio program with D.J. Mary.
    **Thanks to his grandfather, Gary manages passage aboard
    an airplane, which sends his back to his lab.
    **Once back at the lab, Gary finds his enthusiasm for Pokemon
    Researching has wained. He allows his assistant to take
    temporary command of his lab, after only three weeks of
    being back.
    **Gary heads back to Pallet Town, and hides away at his
    Grandfather's ranch. He refuses to talk to anybody about
    his problems, and simply concentrates on his caught
    Pokemon, trying to find inspiration by leveling them up.
    **Gary learns from Tracey that Ash is back in Pallet Town,
    having only come in 8th in the Hoenn League. He requests
    that Ash not know he is back. When he learns that Ash
    left rather quickly for the Battle Frontier, Gary decides
    it's time to take on a completely new challenge as well.
    **Professor Oak suggests that Gary travel to Shinou, as there
    are reports of fascinating Pokemon that desperately need
    to be researched. One night, without letting anybody know,
    he leaves with his Umbreon and Misdrevus.
    **In Shinou, Gary encounters many remarkable Pokemon.
    **Oak informs Gary that Ash is almost finished with the Battle
    Frontier, which Gary knows is his way of saying Ash would
    be back in Pallet once again. So he goes, and does meet
    up with Ash, keeping calm yet still silently furious with
    him. He defeats Ash, then makes the decision to entice him
    by informing him of Shinou.
    **Over the next year, Gary encounters many, many strange
    and interesting Pokemon, however the strangest encounter
    was when he met Shinji. And althogh the two do not particularly
    like each other to begin with, they find they are drawn together
    through physical attraction.
    **Due to Gary's shaky encounters with Ash, Gary and Shinji find
    themselves growing even closer when they meet up for rendevous.
    **The Shinou League comes and goes, and Gary now has to contemplate
    either staying or leaving Shinji...because he can see the younger trainer
    is...in his own Shinji way....becoming attached to him.

    It is midnight, and a full moon is shining brightly. Gary opens his eyes with sudden awareness,
    and looks around with fear. He immediately notices someone is performing some *very* skilled
    fellatio on him, and he grunts with surprise. Shinji looks up, a fiery passion in his eyes.

    SHINJI
    Are you close?

    Gary sweatdrops, not sure how to respond. Suddenly, he grabs his temples with pain. Shinji
    grins and continues once again. Gary, however, has flashes of his false life enter his mind.
    As they continue, he finds himself getting more and more horrified by the memories he
    experiences.

    GARY
    Ash! Richie! No!

    Suddenly, Gary feels teeth scrape him and he yelps, standing quickly. Shinji stands, his eyes
    now filled with a thousand furies.

    SHINJI
    You *weren't* going to mention his name
    in front of me.

    Gary, who in the meantime has zipped up his violet jeans, winces in pain.

    GARY
    Er.....Shinji....I know you have...issues
    with Ashy-boy, but...

    Shinji, upon hearing Ash's name once again, stomps on Gary's foot.

    GARY
    HEY!!!!

    SHINJI
    You fool! Didn't we agree neither of us needed to obsess over Ash
    anymore?

    Gary looks down, frowning. He can tell that even though Shinji is
    very tough on the outside, he is shaking due to his feelings for Gary
    on the inside.

    GARY
    You don't understand...

    Shinji pulls his pants up.

    SHINJI
    Don't I? You *love* Ash. I can tell because I did too. But you know
    the score. How many trainers did we see him...charm? He used me
    and you *know* he used you. And here I was doing an act I *vowed*
    to never perform before I met *you* and you say *his* name...

    Gary can actually see the beginnings of a tear forming in the younger
    trainer's eyes. He closes his eyes, unsure how to proceed next.

    **Ash, due to his emptiness over losing his most cherished boyfriends,
    continues on with Brock, May and Max. To keep his mind off of his loss
    he befriends and grows intimate with two different trainers, Morrison
    and Tyson.
    **Ash enters the Hoenn league, and despite the support he recieves
    from Tyson and Morrison, he cannot help but think of Richie and
    Gary...and he comes in 8th place.
    **Despite the fact that Morrison wanted Ash to stay in Hoenn, he
    leaves soon after, back for Pallet Town.
    **Ash decides to tackle the battle frontier, to keep his mind busy.
    With Brock, Misty, May and Max he leaves Pallet Town.
    **Several months go by and Ash finally finishes the Battle Frontier.
    **Ash returns to Pallet Town and runs into Gary, who entices him
    to come to Shinou. Ash realizes he must, and leaves.
    **Over the next year Ash has many various adventures with Brock
    and Carrie, collecting badges and running into Gary and a very
    compelling rival named Shinji...
    **After seeing Ash and Gary have a meaningful conversation, Shinji
    approaches Ash and informs him that Gary and he are a couple now.
    Ash is torn, and refuses to speak with Gary anymore.
    **Once the Shinou League is over, Ash returns to Pallet Town once
    again, alone, and decides to take a small break, or as Deliah calls
    it "a vacation". He stays in Pallet Town, spending most of his time
    with Prof. Oak and Tracey, however on occasion he does take day
    trips to see Misty in Cerulean and Brock in Pewter. Both can tell
    he is very depressed for someone who should be so happy.
    **While walking along the pier in Cerulean, Pikachu accidentally
    knocks a bike into the ocean. The owner, an ebony-beauty named
    Vylette, immediately is ready to lay the smack-down on Ash for
    not watching where his Pokemon are walking, however after Ash
    breaks down and cries, letting almost a year and a half's worth of
    emotions flow. Vylette may be *incredibly* ghetto, but she's also
    a kind person. She befriends Ash and they end up becoming
    totally best friends, even though she does not get along with
    Misty.
    **After three more weeks of living in Pallet Town, Oak informs Ash
    that the country of Yojuunia has opened it's borders to outsiders,
    and is boasting a wide variety of Pokemon exclusive to their
    region. Ash suggests to Vylette that they take on the region.
    Vylette agrees as she is looking to power up her Pokemon.
    **On the way, Ash meets up with Brock and May. May just finished
    her contest string in Johto, and was here to exchange Pokeblock
    recipes with Brock. Upon learning about Yojuunia, both are intrigued
    enough to join them, much to Vylette's dismay.

    Ash opens his eyes with sudden newfound awareness. He takes a deep breath, and realizes he is sitting on a bench.
    He looks around and can plainly see is at a harbor, and the S.S. Anne is getting ready to depart. Ash is now slightly
    taller, wearing a blue vest with a horizontal bold yellow stripe, and a white t-shirt underneath. Brock runs up
    holding several tickets and pamphlets.

    BROCK
    Hey guys! The S. S. Anne is getting
    ready to depart!

    ASH
    Huh? ......Brock?!?

    Ash looks around and sees May looking through the window of a Harbor Fashion Shoppe. May's hair is now slightly
    longer than the last time we saw her, and wearing slightly more fashionable clothing. She's holding several
    shopping bags, and from the looks of things she just might be buying more. Next to her is Vylette, wearing a
    Prada-looking ensemble. Her expensive weaves have pastel-colored flower clips in them, and she is only half-glancing
    through the window.

    MAY
    I think I might just need to buy this
    dress!

    VYLETTE
    I think you need to be hangin' over
    on that nail-polish, girl...the fumes
    are affecting your judgement.

    May frowns, and turns over to Ash.

    MAY
    What do you think, Ash?

    Ash stands, looking quite shocked. Pikachu, also looking disturbed, crawls up his back to his sholder.

    ASH
    Pikachu...I think....oh....

    Ash suddenly grabs his head, moaning in pain. Pikachu does as well.

    PIKACHU
    Piiika!!!!!*
    (*Oh! The pain!)

    Brock runs up to Ash, placing his hand on Ash's back with concearn.

    BROCK
    Ash?!?

    As the memories come flooding back in swift flashes, Ash regains various
    blocks of memory. When it's over, he takes several breaths and sees
    May and Vylette are now near him.

    MAY
    Ash?

    VYLETTE
    Boy you be trippin'.

    ASH
    I...I lost the Hoenn League *and* the Shinou League?

    Brock, May and Vylette all sweatdrop.

    BROCK
    Did you hit your head?

    ASH
    No...no Brock, but where is Gary and Richie?

    BROCK
    Gary?!? Richie?!?

    May ***** her head to the side with confusion.

    MAY
    I thought you said you were never speaking to
    Gary again...

    BROCK
    And Richie hasn't spoken to you since that time
    in Hoenn....

    Ash frowns, and scratches his head. He looks at Pikachu with confusion.

    ASH
    Uh....I guess I'm not getting the whole backstory.

    PIKACHU
    Piika.*
    (*Well, I can remember Richie and Gary leaving you....)

    VYLETTE
    So who are these guys? Former booty calls
    or something?

    May places her hands to her heart.

    MAY
    They were the loves of his life...but now
    Gary is involved with someone else and
    Richie...who knows where he is at this point.

    Vylette looks at Ash likes he's mad.

    VYLETTE
    Why you triflin' around on has beens?
    This harbor is full of fly sailors, go pick one.

    Brock looks over and sees several college-aged girls boarding the S.S. Anne. He drools
    and grabs Ash and May.

    BROCK
    Er....we don't have time. We need to board
    the boat!

    Ash and May are tugged along to the boat, with Vylette in quick tow. At the ramp, two sailors stop
    them and demand to see their tickets. Brock presents them, one of the sailors grab them and smile
    wickedly.

    BROCK
    Hey, as you can see they are legit tickets!

    SAILOR ONE
    They sure are, so prepare for trouble because to Yojuunia we shall set sail!

    SAILOR TWO
    Ahoy mateys, make it double cuz you know we ain't tellin' tall tales!

    The sailors throw off their warbdrobe, revealing Jessie and James.

    JESSIE
    As evil and old as the galaxy...

    JAMES
    Sent here to fulfill our destiny...

    Meowth hops up, wearing a Captain's hat.

    MEOWTH
    Meowth! And dere's me!

    JESSIE
    To denounce the evils of truth and love...

    JAMES
    To extend our reach to the stars above!

    Jessie salutes.

    JESSIE
    Jessie!

    James salutes as well.

    JAMES
    James!

    MEOWTH
    And Meeeeowth are our names!

    JESSIE
    Wherever there's peace in the universe...

    JAMES
    Team Rocket...

    MEOWTH
    Will be dere...

    TEAM ROCKET
    To make everything worse!

    Wobbuffet pops up and salutes.

    WOBBUFFET
    Woooobbuffet!*
    (My Wynaut lies over the ocean, My Wynaut lies over the sea...)

    Mime Jr. hops on top of Wobbuffet.

    MIME JR.
    Mimemimemime!*
    (Once again! This time in brail!!!!)

    ASH/BROCK/MAY/VYLETTE
    Team Rocket!

    VYLETTE
    Not you three triflin' fools again. Bounce!

    Jessie sneers.

    JESSIE
    You may think you're hot, but girlfriend....
    you are not.

    JAMES
    Recognize! *We* deserve the luxury cruise
    far more than annoying twerps!

    Vylette narrows her eyes and withdraws a Pokeball.
    Her high-pitched voice is even louder.

    VYLETTE
    Hurry up, Sableye! Get out here and woop
    their asses! Y'ALLMEAN!!!

    Sableye emerges.

    SABLEYE
    Sableye....*
    (*Sableye N da hood, comin' at ya son)

    Ash sighs.

    ASH
    Look, if you guys wanna go to Yojuunia
    go ahead, I can't...

    MAY
    Huh?

    JAMES
    Is this some sort of a trick?

    Suddenly, Jessie grabs her head in absolute pain. James sees this and cannot help but
    stop and stare.

    JESSIE
    Owww!!!!

    JAMES
    Uh...Jessie....you have a headache or something?

    As flashes of memories break into Jessie's mind, Ash simply turns around and begins walking away.
    Moments later Brock and May are following. Vylette grabs the tickets from James and catches up
    with the others.

    MAY
    Ash, what is the matter with you?

    BROCK
    It took us forever to get these tickets!

    ASH
    Sorry guys, but no way. I need to return
    to Pallet Town.

    May, Brock and Vylette all go wide-eyed and gasp loudly.

    MAY/BROCK/VYLETTE
    Pallet Town!

    BROCK
    I thought you were dead-set on heading
    to Yojuunia.

    VYLETTE
    Yeah man, sup?

    Ash continues walking, looking down to the pavement.

    ASH
    Sorry guys, like I said you can all
    go if you want, but I can't. I made
    a promise and I'm going to keep it.

    MAY
    A promise? To who?

    ASH
    To my boyfriends.

    Ash continues walking, leaving his friends to stare at each other in disbelief. Within moments May is
    chasing after Ash, followed closely by Brock. Vylette sighs, rolls eyes eyes, and simply walks in their
    direction.

    MAY
    Ash wait!

    BROCK
    Yeah, you know we won't let you
    go alone!

    VYLETTE
    Man, this better not take long, aight?

    Ash continues walking, with a solid look of determination.

    NARRATOR
    And so, our heroes have found themselves
    facing a very large rift, however Ash is
    certain he can mend it by keeping his promise.
    However, he may find that easier said than done...

    As May and Vylette blankly follow Ash and Brock, neither see that a green-haired teenager is following them. When
    his face is revealed, it's Drew. He, too, looks somewhat older. His hair is slightly longer in the back, but for the most part it's the
    same. He's taller now, almost a half-foot taller than Ash, and overall his style is similar to what he used to wear. His purple unbuttoned
    silk shirt is mostly same, flipped collar and all...except now it is sleeveless. His black undershirt is sleeveless as well, and his seafoam
    colored slacks are replaced with seafoam colored cargo pants. Finally he is sporting black and purple sandles. He grins.

    DREW
    Boy I have great luck...

    NARRATOR
    And one thing is for sure, Jessie will never
    win the Hoenn Grand Festival now...

    We cut to Jessie, bawling her eyes out. A very confused James and Meowth are consoling her while Wobbuffet brings her
    a lemonaid on a serving tray.

    JESSIE
    It's just not fair!!!!! *I* should have won that festival!

    JAMES
    Why on *Earth* are you bringing up the Hoenn
    Grand Festival?

    MEOWTH
    Yeah, dat wasn't exactly one of our finer points....

    Jessie looks furious.

    JESSIE
    It *must* have been that Shadow Jessie's fault!
    Grrrrr, that Mistress Minova! If I ever get my hands
    on her!

    James looks at Meowth.

    JAMES
    I think she's snapped, crackled...and this is her final pop.

    MEOWTH
    I thought she moved on but I guess
    you can never predict a crazy person's
    actions....

    JESSIE
    I WAS ROOOOOOOBBED!!!!! WAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!!!!!

    Yay for 3Shi porn! XD Again, very well-written material, and I'll just note how well you wrote *that* scene. I keep seeing litle grammatical problems, mainly with the "there, they're, their" and "your, you're" conundrums.

    The story itself: Pretty interesting stuff. The latter chapter was definitely more intricate, though perhaps it would have had more impact if you had described the character's emotions - show, don't tell. I realize your style of writing restricts that a bit, but I'm sure you could work around that. Ganymede's gone now, I suppose, and our favourite boys are apart. [sobs] Hope Ash can pull everything together. By the way, I notice you've become a DarkStreakShipper.

    Quote time!

    No way...Lance? Pink Triangle Head Lance?
    No way is he a tough guy. I dominatrixed his
