IRP Bio Camerupt Solid 2
#1
The multiverse can be a truly strange and bizarre place. One choice can change the course of history, or possibly just split off a whole new universe. And one person can, against all logic, end up doing an IRP quest that she's currently in the middle of regardless. Parallel universes were probably involved. Or possibly nanomachines, since I may as well reference MGS even further owing to both that series and this thread breaking the fourth wall and teabagging the shards.

Which hurts, by the way, so don't do it. And call emergency services for me while you're at it.

Oh right, I should remind us all what the current quest is. *ahem*

Objective: The Fire Grace Festival start to get chaotic when a young aspiring trainer prods a hundred-year-old Camerupt into trying to battle. Help calm the traditional Pokémon before it plagues the city with molten lava.
Location: Etaoin City

Every year that passes, during the final days of the Fire Grace Festival, a ceremony is held in which a sacred 100-year old Camerupt is walked by the city elders on a decorated path throughout the City. At the end of the path lies an altar, at which the Camerupt traditionally provides magma to encase donated offerings for the legendary Pokémon from the community.

This tradition is one that has been performed for hundreds of years, and almost always goes smoothly. We say almost because this year happens to be the exception. As you and your friends watch the ceremony take place, a young riled up boy runs up on the path and call out his Pokémon. His friends shed some fabled secrets to him, saying such things that if you can defeat the Camerupt in battle, then you'd gain the power shooting magma from your fingertips. Calling out a young Spraylet and a Wyrmal, the boy and his Pokémon unexpectedly start to buffet the old beast with a few puny water guns. While the Camerupt was strong and resistant to most attacks, it started to get annoyed, and pretty soon after the Pokémon started to rampage. If you and your Pokémon can help to calm the Camerupt down somehow before it erupts in the middle of the city, the elders are sure to thank you in some way.

Kathira Narae, the person mentioned previously, stood in the crowd for the odd event once more. She had a strange nagging feeling that she'd been here before, and a slightly nauseating feeling that, at this very moment, she was both standing in a crowd and being thrown around by a rampaging Camerupt while suffering Stun Spore paralysis. Not that riding the Camerupt like a bucking bronco wasn't awesome, but it was an incredibly stupid thing to do from a player perspective. Not that Kathira would ever pay attention to the genre savvy sense any effective character should have if they want to live for very long. The Camerupt that apparently doubled as a rollercoaster walked along the path, flanked by it's handlers, until a young boy put on his sunglasses, fluttered his black leather coat and began.

Hacking complete, the boy sent his Wyrmal and Spraylet out to Water Gun the Camerupt, who, to no-one's surprise, didn't like it and ran over it's handlers on a collision course with the idiot kid. Who hacked the matrix further and vanished.

It was up to Kathira to stop the Camerupt! Again!...Except that was the moment a Carvanha by the common nickname of Nibbles decided to latch onto her arm. So, Mr Kyurem, where do we go from here?

"Oh. Great. Time bloody paradoxes. Hey, mods, can you tell me when this thing will be consistent, so I can, you know, actually finish my RP first?" Sam shook the interdimensional sand off him as he got up from the ground, which may/may not have been dented by a random kid falling from about 13 metres due to a rip in time and space. However, this is only a maybe, so don't be making any judgements yet.

Sam got up to saw a crowd of people cheering over a really old Camerupt or something, he didn't really care, for this wasn't a real celebration! Real celebration happen in Sinnoh, where we stand around a bell praying to gods which may not actually exist while some mutant nightmare machine turns the town into this weird... place... thingy. That's a REAL celebration!

Either way, Sam noticed that there was a kid, noticeably with short, black hair, black sunglasses and possibly the worst black jacket for when you're trying to cosplay as the MiB. He then started to speak in binary, which while Sam understood perfectly, he said really, REALLY slowly. Bloody casual.

After he finished, he, contradictory to his words, sent out two Pokemon, both of which attempted to murder the Camerupt. Spraylet used Water Gun, rather fairly, but Wyrmal... kinda just flopped on the ground. Poor thing. Either way, upon further inspection (which skills he learned from "The Looker Method: Yes, even YOU can become a detective in five easy steps!") he found that the Camerupt was actually a part-time roller coaster, which was interesting.

The Camerupt was rather irritated to say the least - after rage-quitting his part-time job, he charged for the boy, who warped through the matrix again and left the Cam-hey wait a second YOU SENT ME HERE YOU IDIOT KID GET BACK HERE

Uhhh...

As I was saying, the Camerupt was left charging through the dust, who attempted to cause a chain-reaction combo on a few people. Naturally, he was a heavy-weight, so that would've been stupid. Should've picked Fox IMO.

After these events happened, Sir Edward Alexander Nibbles lept out of his Pokeball and found a suitable host to control the mind of, so he grabbed onto their arm and attempted to control their brain. Sam, as expected, was not impressed. He tore the Carvanha off, and temporarily demoted them to a mere Mister Edward Alexander Nibbles, which, quite appropriately, was quite M.E.A.N. Get it? Be... because it's cruel, and he DAMNIT WHY AM I REPEATING THE SAME JOKE AGAIN.

So, you've got a partially-psychopathic kid with a baseball fish and a cow right next to you, and your objective is to stop some sort of volcano bull. Have fun trying to work this one out, Kathira.

So it turns out that we're mad, the Camerupt's mad, the kid's mad, the multiverse is crazy. Situation normal, in other words. But trying to ride the Camerupt like a bucking bronco again is just a repeat of the previous/next/simultaneous Camerupt rampage and would therefore be boring and unecessary. With this in mind, Kathira absolutely did not run up to the animal, punch it in the face, and swing up onto it to try and ride it around. Honestly, it's like she though it was SCP-682 or something.

Instead, she looked through the canon of the wierd line she'd suddenly found herself in and decided to rip off her fellow trainer's idea of 'throw a promo poke at it'. Of course, the pokes and the promos were different but the principle was the same. Rather than a fish, it was a ray that had absolutely no wateryness to it, with an name containing a reference I doubt anyone will get but named him that anyway.

Kathira scooped up Thelx the lurkery Dasfix by the tail and gauged the distance. It was getting shorter. In a display of How Not To Treat Your Pokemon, a display of abuse that should've had PETA on her head, she seung the ray around by his tail before launching him at the camel. Thelx landed on the camel's face and clung on for dear life, praying he could stay there and not be mercilessly thrown about by his horrible owner again.

The situation was this: the Camerupt had a poisonous metal ray on its face, Xander had nothing useful to do, and Kathira was unhappy that she wasn't allowed to ride the Camerupt. And Sam, Leaf, and M.E.A.N. had yet to make a move on the camel. Time to switch, I guess.

And just like that, Sam was in a silver and gold suit with a giant S on the front and he was a moderator superhero who couldn't use his superpowers near dirt. And he had his underpants on the wrong way round.

PARADOXES.

Sam slapped Kathira for stealing his idea (gaining a good applause from the audience) and then showed that filthy casual how a true pokemon thrower does it. He took MEAN up from the ground, and took a moment to aim and launched the fish. The fish took a moment to sing "I believe I can fly" with a deep masculine voice before hitting the Camerupt directly in the face, knocking it off balance and probably causing the Dasfix to fly off somewhere.

"See that, memb- oh sheet, did my voice suddenly go that low? Damn superpowers. Anyway, that, my friend, is how you throw your unwanted Pokemon away." Now it was time to focus on the actual problem - the Camerupt.

Would they ever stop the Camerupt? Will Sam stop waiting for Kath to do something? With M.E.A.N. ever get his title back? Will Sarah find out that Mike is cheating on her? Find out after the break.

In the spirit of more comedic sociopathy based on Thelx abuse, the ray dropped into one of the Camerupt's holes on it's back. A Steel-type dropped into lava. Ouch. Kathira smacked Sam across the back of the head for betraying her and becoming a mod, then delivered another dope slap for thinking a hungry pirahna latched onto the face was any better than a metal poisonous ray covering the entire thing's face. While before the Camerupt had been blind, now it was in a lot of pain. And it wanted to deliver that pain to our intrepid idiots.

It charged, about $500 for medical bills, then ran right at the trainers when they refused to pay up. Even in this situation, Kathira was at a loss for what to do. Without a tranquiliser gun, there isn't much you can do against an angry camel, the only other option was currently soaking in the Camerupt's magma, and Sam had apparently decided not to do anything except throw Baseball Nibbles at it.

And there was no way I was going to bow to public pressure. I've already done the 'bucking bronco' thing. Really. Kathira is not going to punch the camel in the face, nor is she going to ride the part-time rollercoaster. Really. I'm serious!

Oh what the hell.

To avoid what happened last time, Kathira checked the move pools of Leaf and Nibbles. So far so good, no offensive status moves that she could run into. Preparations complete, Kathira channelled the power of the Almighty Idiot, ran full pelt at the Camerupt, punched it full in the face, and swung on top of it.

Now she was riding it, she directed its course away from walls, doors, children, children dressed to look like walls, etc. So far so good, although she was unsure what ELSE she could do from here. So Sam! Get your rear into gear, ditch your fear, I need you near! And doing stuff!

That genuinely made me laugh. Bravo.

After spending a moment to work out how many pounds this Camerupt wanted, he realized that Kathira was too busy being stupid and pretending it was a rodeo to try and help stop it. Time to prepare Mjolnir.

...where'd I put it again? No, I lost it! Curse you, non-existant group to curse!

Now that Nibbles Baseball was clinging onto Camerupt like it was hanging onto a fire cow for its life or something outrageous like that, Sam decided to actually get to work with stopping this Camerupt, so he can get a reward of some kind before he gets warped back through the parado-ANNNND he's 84.

After reversing time for a moment, Sam decided to see if Leaf could use of Falco tech on Camerupt, only to remember once again that Camerupt is a heavyweight and he's on a meer 11%. Damnit! Back to the drawing board.

"UGH. If you want it done right, you have to do it yourself..." he said, reciting some old saying or something that he didn't completely remember. So, he decided to distract the Camerupt so that Kathira could get her manta ray back, while loosing her arm. That classifies as doing it yourself, right?

"Hey, Camerupt. I've got a problem with my maths homework here, it's algebra stuff." The Camerupt, unsurprisingly, walked up calmly to Sam, got some really cliche glasses onto itself and began to read his homework, shortly before starting to make corrections with Sam's pen. Turns out this cow was actually a pretty nice guy.

OOC: S'fine, my humour's gone a bit meh as well. I was gonna put pounds for the charging...but then I remembered that North America has no NHS and the dollars suddenly made for more funny.

Good news, we're a quarter of the way there for beating the quest! 3/12 posts each, excluding this one.

The Camerupt sat down to correct the algebra and the sudden change to slope dropped Kathira off the camel's back into an undignified heap on the floor. At least the Camerupt was distracted, although it wasn't doing anything bad now. It wasn't rampaging or attacking or, or, or...

But then again, the handlers were long gone, having run for the hills rather than help deal with the animal that THEY were the most experienced at dealing with, instead leaving a teenager and an age-unknown with barely any experience with pokemon to cope with the damn thing. Wonderful.

Kathira decided to take the time to retrieve Thelx from the Camerupt so the ray could be further abused. Violence is funny! With complete disregard for her safety, Kathira dunked her arm down one of the Camerupt's volcano humps, swished around for Thelx, and lost her arm to the wrong hole. Thelx was in the other one.

<<<RELOAD SAVE>>>

Kathira decided to take the time to retrieve Thelx from the Camerupt so the ray could be further abused. Violence is funny! Which was why she decided to just straight up murder the Camerupt, butcher it, grab Thelx, and flee the ensuing mob. Unfortunately, the final part of that plan failed and Kathira was butchered herself.

<<<RELOAD SAVE>>>

Kathira decided to take the time to retrieve Thelx from the Camerupt so the ray could be further abused. Violence is funny! Which was why she decided to grab Nibbles and retrieve the Dasfix that way. Carvanhas tended to bite anything and everything they could, and Nibbles was no different. Kathira held the fish by it's tail and gently lowered it into the second hole on the Camerupt, where Thelx was swimming. Surprisingly, the ray was unhurt, though that was about to change. One strong and sharp bite later and Kathira hauled Nibbles up, who was holding Thelx's fin in his mouth. The ray clearly wasn't enjoying himself, then again he was being bitten.

Two tosses later and Nibbles was beside Sam and Kathira had her trusty head ray back where he belonged. With any degree of luck, the Camerupt would be distracted by Algie's Bra long enough for the trainers to figure out how to keep the thing contained before trying to find the runaway handlers.

After a small amount of algebra with Camerupt, Sam's mind was suddenly filled with a long drone of "caaaameellllllllllllllsssssssss," which is of course, one of the most thought-provoking thoughts of all thoughts that a man can think. In the Camerupt's time of weakness, he got Leaf to find some handcuffs, which she found fairly quickly, and he quickly put them around Camerupt's feet.

"You're under-arrest for giving me the wrong answers!"

"Noooooo! It's a lie! 2x+1=5 will mean x is 1! I did nothing wrong!" The Camerupt struggled, but failed to break free. We had the Camerupt under control, but court was another matter. Nibbles and that Thelx guy can serve as witnesses. Camerupt suddenly struggled more as it realised something.
"Hold on a second... this is meerly an excuse to make a terrible reference to something later on! You MONSTERS!" Policemen quickly arrived and dragged the Camerupt to court, which we too had to attend. Joy.

Reference to what? REFERENCE TO WHAT?!

And what are the Camerupts charges, exactly? If anything, it should've been the handlers who got arrested! And speaking of, it might be an idea to try and find those guys first, we have got time until the trial, right?

Unfortunately, or unfortunately depending on perspective, it was only Lord Narae and the treacherous Mr Kyurem who had to actually go to court. Sam, Kathira, drug cow, Nibbles, Xander and Thelx could continue dealing with the problem. The Camerupt was controlled, but his handlers were nowhere to be found. Like the rest of the crowd, they'd scarpered when the mathematical monster had menaced the many men in the market. Despite apparently being trained and experienced enough to deal with things. Plus, the Camerupt was still needed to complete the walk once he was released, and the handlers were needed for that.

Question was, where were they? It wasn't like footprints could help, everyone's were there! Perhaps a thrown Nibbles or Thelx could get a bird's eye view and see which way they went?
