Kari's Glass Ball"Once upon a time, a woman had two daughters--the younger one was named Kari." Brock begins. "One day she gave each girl a beautiful glass ball as a token of her love."
"Wow!" Serena gasps as she pictures what the balls may have looked like.
"The girls cherished those glass balls from their mother, and loved to gently toss them to each other." Brock continues. "But one spring afternoon as they were playing, Kari accidentally threw hers over the garden wall, where it landed in the neighbor's yard."
"Uh oh..." Ash muses.
"The girls were naturally terrified." Brock explains. "You see, a Mightyena lived next door, and he never talked to anyone. Still, Kari could not stand the thought of losing her ball, so she bravely walked to the Mightyena's house and knocked on the front door." He knocks on a rock for effect.
"I'm very sorry, but I have lost my ball in your backyard. May I go get it?" he giggles as a young girl.
"Certainly," he replies in a deeper version of himself for the Mightyena. "
Jack and the Shining Goldeen"What other types of lore does Brock know besides Kitsune stories?" Serena wonders.
"All kinds--adventure tales, trickster tales--usually involving a crafty Pikachu named Sorin..." Misty replies, listing the different tale types on her fingers. "Tales of how things came to be, funny tales, tales from our travels, tales of love won and love lost, Jack tales..."
"I've never heard a Jack story before..." Serena muses.
"They typically involve the titular character stumbling on or being given a magic item or magic powers, and how he uses his wits to win a princess, or some other quest." Misty explains.
Ash then gets an idea. "Tell Serena the one about Jack and the shining Goldeen!"
"Okay...I haven't told that one in a while..." Brock muses before beginning "Once upon a time, there lived an old man who had three sons. Two of them were clever young men, but the third, Jack, wasn't exactly the brightest star in the sky."
Serena giggles as she pictures Jack lounging on the stove. "The two
The Fire Guardian...As I look at the valley down below... a brown haired boy sings, accompanying himself on a black acoustic guitar. It is green just as far as I can see...
As my memory returns, how my heart did yearn,
For you and the days that used to be...
High on a mountain, living free
Thinking about the days that used to be...
High on a mountain standing all alone,
Wondering where the years of my life have gone...
An orange haired girl leads the applause as the last E minor chord fades into the night. "Bravo, Brock!"
"You were right when you said Brock was a master of the guitar, Ash!" a blonde haired girl smiles as she applauds.
"He's a master storyteller as well, Serena." Ash grins. "He'll even take requests."
Inspired, Brock starts a relaxed melody in E minor. "For a time, the great warrior miko Kanade served at a temple...well, high on a mountain." he begins. "Wildfires had been flaring up in the area, so many were afraid to leave their homes. But Kanade never neglected her dutie
Terra's Arabian NightGiggles and excited chatter fill the air as Terra and some of her friends arrange their sleeping bags all in a row as Ash, Misty, and Brock look on. "Wonder what tales you have up your sleeve this time, master storyteller?" Misty grins.
"I'm gonna let Terra and her friends tell me what they want to hear--doesn't matter if they want to hear one story or my whole repertoire." Brock assures his friends as he pets Pikachu.
"We'd need more than one night to hear your whole repertoire." Ash notes as Brock carefully steps through the girls' bags to reach a chair overlooking the two neat rows of sleeping bags, each one occupied by an excited girl.
"Okay, everyone--who's first to request a story?" Brock asks.
"Tell your version of 'Aladdin'!" Terra requests.
Brock nods. "Okay...just keep in mind this is not quite the 'Aladdin' everybody knows." The girls nod to show they understand.
With that, he begins "There once lived a poor tailor somewhere in a far away land of the desert. Although she was
A Song for a MasterThe sun was high overhead as Ash and his companions arrived in Slateport City. Ash led the way, with Pikachu basking in the sun from his shoulder. Brock was next, reading over the "Things to Do" section in the Slateport chapter of the Houen guidebook, and May and Max followed not far behind--May snapping pictures all the while of the Wingulls circling above them, the ships in the harbor, and the bustling marketplace.
"It says here that the idol Lisia and her band, the Cloudwings, perform daily concerts by the Contest Hall." Brock read from the guidebook, showing the others a picture of a teal haired girl in a sparkling blue and white costume dancing with three other girls in identical costumes as a rock band played in the background. "Before and after every show, they are also available for pictures and autographs--meet the fab four, as well as Lisia's Pokemon--Ali and Aida."
"I know them!" May smiles. "That's usually their standard costume, but they have thousands of different outfits
The Mermaid and the Boy-The Princess' ChallengeRitter: But I am the one that should wed Princess Heather! I have the ring here!
(murmurs from the court as we see the ring--but the stone inside is a lapis lazuli, not a sapphire like Heather gave Brian!)
Heather: All right...if you are the one I love, you must prove it to me.
Ritter: I'll do anything at all! Name your terms!
Heather: First, I want you to transform into a fireball.
(Ritter the Red freezes in horror--he has no inkling of magic power at all! But then a devious look appears on his face.)
Ritter(mimicking a transformation and flames): Kshoof-woof-woof-woof-woof-BOOOM!!!
(Heather is clearly not amused at Ritter running around the room making fire noises)
Heather: Okay, now try teleporting around this room.
Ritter(mimicing a teleport): Kapoing! (he jumps on a chair) Kapoing! (he jumps on a table) Kapoing! (he gingerly uses the table as leverage to climb on a chandelier, but the chandelier begins to strain under Ritter the Red's weight) Kapoing!
(at this the chandelier comes
The Haunted ShrineLaughter fills the air in a ring of tents--and inside the largest tent, a brown haired boy smiles as a crowd of children of various ages with similar features gathers around him. "Okay, gang...anyone have any suggestions to start storytime?"
"Ooh! Tell the ghost story about the haunted shrine in a castle!" a black haired girl suggests as she invites a small blue penguin into her arms.
"I don't know..." A black haired boy isn't sure. "I know Brock's a good storyteller, but when it comes to ghost stories, he's a bit TOO good."
"Ash, Dawn, relax...I don't think this one is too scary." Brock assures his friends before beginning "Long ago in a far away land, a certain lord lived in an enormous castle on top of a hill. One day, he woke up with the desire for a new suit to wear to public ceremonies and balls."
He then intones "But there was another reason for the new suit."
Giggles of anticipation fill the air. "So he sent for his tailor, but his tailor refused to do his master's bidding this
Pokemon Cyber Dimensions 1-2: Looking to the PastAfter an eventful morning in the digital world, the gang returns to the real world, and Ash raves to Serena about the amazing experience as Digifire (despite Misty berating him saying that she was the one that bailed him out)
Rotom diffuses the argument by saying they'll have plenty of time to explore all the digital world has to offer, and tells the four friends to follow him.
After a long elevator ride down, Rotom shows them their own private screening room, controlled by Eiga, a data Navi that specializes in movies. Ash isn't sure if they'll have to bring their own movies, but is floored to find out that Eiga has almost every kind of movie and TV show ever made.
Rotom next explains how to tell Eiga what to do--"Lights" will turn down the lights or turn them up again, "Intermission" means turn up the lights and stop the movie. "Load" means prepare the specified film or show for viewing, "Roll" means start the specified movie or show, and "Cut" means stop the movie or show. In additio
The Legend of Dame RobinAsh smiles as he meets Calli backstage at the conclusion of the musical interlude."You're doing great so far."
"Thanks." Calli replies. "Playing the heroine was fun...can I play the heroine in the next story?"
"What IS the next story, anyway?" Serena wonders. When Brock whispers it to her she smiles. "Calli would be perfect for that one!" With that, everyone rushes into position.
The lights flash the five minute warning before coming up on Brock in his nook. "Once upon a time, in a great kingdom, a grand tournament was being held in honor of the king's birthday. "But among all the spectators that flocked from far and near to watch the competitions, the princess, who was named Robin, longed to be one of the competitors jousting, shooting arrows and slinging spells, to name a few of the competitions."
He then plays a sad chord. "Her father, meanwhile, felt that jousting, archery, and magic were not proper things for a lady to learn, and so sent Robin out to spread the word about the tour
Loving You- (Levi x Reader) [AU]
*A/N: The song lyrics are included in the fic, so listening to the song would be perfect with this fic~
( X )
Just once in a day, I remember you, miss you
“I’m not spending hard earned money on your coffee.”
You pout, letting a small huff escape your lips as Levi takes hold of the shopping bags, a grunt emitting from his throat.
“But, come on this is the last day I can fully spend with you before-
Rumour Has It - [AU] Punk!Teen!Levi x Teen!Reader
Being here was going to ruin his reputation, he was sure of it.
Levi had always been the “thug” of the school, as it were. He might’ve been short, but he was damn strong and damn intimidating. No one really wanted to mess with him, which he greatly appreciated. The last thing he wanted was to be approached by a bunch of assholes he wanted nothing to do with.
But… the bad part about repelling so many people was that you were among them. You too were too frightened of him to want to talk to him – even when you needed to you’d simply walk up to him, see him notice you, then run away. It was disheartening, especially considering you were the one person he actually wanted to approach him.
Despite that, Levi was always distant from others, he never went to parties or did anything with anyone outside of school – it gave him that mysterious sort of aura that people were intimidated by.
But that just had to fucking change, didn’t it? He just had t
2P!Canada x Reader - Day Off
"[Y/N], I've seen that you've been working hard for the last two months without taking a single day off," you boss said," And I must say, I'm very impressed!"
"Thank you sir! I love doing my job!" you smiled.
"Well, every ones a while, you need to take at least two days off."
"No thank you sir. I-"
"No no! You need it! To clear your mind and all, you know." your boss smiled.
You thought for a moment before nodding, "Okay sir! Thank you!"
"You can go home now."
You nodded again, grabbing your handbag and left your work.
While walking, you dialed your best friend's number and waited until he picks up.
"You Mattie! Wanna come and hang out with me?" you asked.
"Aren't you at work now?"
"Nope! My boss gave me two days holiday~ Meaning that we can hang out!"
"... Where to?"
Walking towards your favourite café, you were stopped by three men.
"Hey, babe~" one of them said.
"Back off bastards." you said wh
2P!Canada x Child!Reader - Do You Want Pie?
Matthieu looked away from his book to finding you holding a pie, "Did you make that?"
"Uh-huh!" you nodded, "Wanna try it?"
Matthieu took of his glasses, "Lemme try."
You walked towards him then threw the pie on his face. You giggled and ran away.
"Why you little!" Matthieu angrily said before chasing you around the house.
Drunk!2P!America x Reader - Don't Trust Me
You hold your camera close to you while watching TV. You had a feeling that Allen would do something as you already seen him drinking earlier. You waited for a while until footsteps, that sounds like someone was wearing high heels, can be heard.
You peeked from the couch and found Allen walking downstairs, wearing a black dress and black high heels. He also wore make-up which amused you. You then started recording when you noticed that he was too drunk to notice that you're in the living room.
Black dress with the tights underneath,
I got the breath of the last cigarette on my teeth,
And she's an actress,
But she ain't got no need.
She's got money from her parents in a trust fund back east." Allen sand as he flips his skirt over.
He then sat on the chair that was beside the stairs. Once he sat down, he crossed his leg and continued singing,
"Tongues always pressed to your cheeks,
While my tongue is on the inside of some other girl's teeth,"
"Ew." you muttered.
"Tell your boyfriend if
Hungary x Child!Reader - Frying Pan
"Oh dear! Are you all alone. little girl?" a woman with wavy brown hair asked.
"Yes, ma'am." you replied.
"Where are your parents?"
"My dad's busy, ma'am. My big brother said that he'll come and pick me up at 2:30."
The woman checked her watch before saying, "But it's 3:25."
You looked down, "That bastard."
"Would you like me to take you to your home?"
"Well, I brought a new frying pan," the woman said as she took the frying pan from the paper bag that she was holding, "I can hit him if want."
You smiled, "Uh-huh!"
"I'm Elizabeta Hédervary. Nice to meet you!"
"Nice to meet you too, Mrs. Elizabeta! I'm [Y/N] Kirkland~!"
"[Y/N] Kirkland, huh? Arthur's daughter?"
"No, Oliver's daughter!"
"Ah! Then, I'll wait here with you, okay?"
~~~Timeskip to 4:10~~~
Allen ran towards your school and didn't find you at the gate. But instead, he got hit by Elizabeta with her frying pan.
Allen feel down, unconscious while you took Elizabeta's hand and walked away.
Physical check up | Doctor!Levi x Reader
Warning, may be pervy. Or not.
As you entered the clinic, you were greeted by a woman with ginger hair and eyes with glasses. She looked up and smiled at you.
"Hello and welcome to Survey Corps Clinic! How can I help you ma'am?" You took out a paper out your purse and handed it to the receptionist.
"I'm here for a check up," Your voice sounded a little croaky, like a frog trying to talk. She laughed under her breath, making you blush in embarrassment. She looked at it for a second before signing something, then gave the paper to another receptionist with short black hair sitting across her.
"Alright, I will call you when the doctors arrive, got it? For now, you may take a seat in the waiting room," Sighing, you sat down in one of the room's cold chairs.
After a what seemed a long while, you heard a soft, feminine voice call you out.
"[Full name], we will be seeing you now," You saw the girl with the same short black hair. You stood up, and walked over to her. She
Drunk!2P!FACE x Child!Reader - Drunken Night
Today, you were sitting with your family on the dinning table, watching them get drunk as you drink your strawberry milk. Allen, Matthieu and Francois seems to be calm and dumb while Oliver just gets angry. Just angry enough for him to slap the three. You tried recording but Oliver took it and threw your camera on to the couch. You were relieved that it landed safely and it's position was on your family, meaning that it was recording the whole time.
"Hey," Allen spoke, "Remember when I stick my leg out and Oliver tripped over and fell on the pool?"
"Well, of course! That's when you were just a baby." Oliver growled.
"No... I was just... Nine?"
"No, you were 96 that time." Matthieu corrected him.
"Then how old am I now?"
"2014." Francois replied.
"Hey hey! Remember that one time I tried to propose to Al?" Matthieu asked.
"I should have said yes!" Allen spat.
"Well, there is still time to propose." Francois suggested.
Mathhieu nodded as he holds Allen's hand
2P!England x Child!Reader - Photo Album
"Poppet~! Look what I got~!" Oliver said as he walked into the living room.
You looked away from the TV and found him walking towards you while carrying a a bunch of photo albums.
He sat beside you as he placed the albums on the coffee table in front of him, "This always brings the memories~"
"Are these photo albums?" you asked as you grab one of the album, that was red in colour and opened it on the first page.
"Yes it is~ I had been taking pictures of you, Allie and Mattie when you all are just a baby." Oliver responded.
You laughed, "Why is his pants wet?"
Oliver looked at the picture that you were talking about. It was a picture of Allen, who looked about your age, crying while his pants were wet on the crotch area.
"Oh, Allen peed on his pants when we're going back home from the amusement park." Oliver chuckled.
You turned the next page and laughed hard. There was a picture of Francois trying to calm both baby Allen and Matthieu who were crying while sitting on the tub.
The Core of Blackrock MountainTale 200: The Core of Blackrock Mountain (the Trio)
"And now, time for another song from the repertoire of Flynn Devine..." Brock grins before taking the harp and starting a mournful melody:
A long time ago, in a land far away,
Three dwarven clans vied for supremacy
While two walked the path of light
The third walked the way of the dark
The duergar wished to rule them all
With the wisps of fire by their side
But though he sought an army,
He summoned the Wisp King Ragnaros...
Ash joins in with a tense melody on the Pokeflute as Brock continues:
He had been imprisoned under Redbridge Mountain,
Where he'd built up years of rage,
And now that he was free again,
To the dwarven city he laid siege
The battlefield burned with flames and ashes
Until the duergar city was no more
The battle created Blackrock Mountain,
With its white hot molten core..
Misty and Ash trade solos for a moment, over which Brock scats the fiddle line as he plays a harmony line. After playing the long and
