WARNING: Before you go and read this, please realize that this is a work in progress. Not only is this very chapter not really done, I also am not 100% sure how I'm going to continue this.. or even what it should be titled.
I have also uploaded this to DeviantArt. If you have a comment to make, I would like to ask of you that you do it there as opposed to here, so I have one central location.
Thank you for your time in reading this, and I hope you enjoy this minor fiction thing.
"Honey~! Honey, wake up! You're going to miss the-" "I DON'T CARE MOM, it's 11 AM on a SATURDAY. Lemme just sleep for a little longer.."
"Oh, get out of your bed, now!" Wh.. whoawhat?! "Aughwhat?! MOM WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!" "Oh, it'll dry up. Now come on, you need to get up." "..You.. seriously threw a bucket of water over me?! What.. what is wrong with you?!" No use. She already left my room..
Bluh. It's too early for this, but since my bed is soaking wet, it's no use.. I'd better get up.
..Is this really necessary..? Showing them my memories from that day..? It's not exactly all that interest-.. Okay, fine. Though I really don't get it. What..? Intro.. Oh alright.
Hey there. I know you are there, seeing my memories play out and all that.. And since I was just told I should probably introduce myself..
My name is Baccata. Baccata Pomona. I'm 17. I live in Tuberosum City. It's thriving metropolis, with the largest convention center in the Edent region. And yeah. It's stuffed to the brim with people and bluh. I prefer to just stay in my room, read some books or check the internet..
But it seems today Mom has decided to drag me over to the convention. Apparantly some gathering of important professors were gonna show up. I am.. was.. You know, you're reading my memories, so I'll stick to talking about it as if it's present time, yeah? Should make things less complicated.
As I was saying, I am a bit suprised my Mom would drag me over to some study thing. I mean, my grades are fine, and I'm pretty sure I can land a job somewhere later. My life isn't all too bad, it's just.. well, sometimes.. my Mom can be a little.. ah.. overexcited? Perhaps the wrong word, but doesn't really matter.
Either way, as I stumbled downstairs, clothed by pretty much still in a sleepy haze.. "You should eat your breakfast quickly, hun. Otherwise we'll miss the conference~!" Whoo, a panel full of eggheads. Yeah, that'll be great. "Sure, Mom, whatever."
You know, about the convention center.. There's pretty much everything in there. Largest building this side of the world. They constantly hold tournaments and conventions and such.. It's a pretty big place, so I'm not too suprised there's a stadium in there. Graham supposedly has all his fights there, too, though heck if I know. I'm not that interested in.. those things. Even if the whole world is psychotic about them.
Wait. Crap. So's Mom. Don't tell me..
Yeah. I should have seen this coming. When we got there, all signs pointed to 'This was so obvious, even a blind Diglett would've seen it.' Not a science or technological convention.. But a Pokémon Convention.
Despite Mom's several attempts to get my interest in these critters, I really couldn't care less. So there's like hundreds of 'em. Kay. Cool. She constantly tries to tell me stories of how she was travelling the region back when she was only 10 years old, and.. has honestly been haunting me for the last 7 years to get my starter Pokémon already. Well, almost 8 now. My birthday's in a week, so..
But seriously, you can't go outside without tripping over some kid's Rattata or whatever other cutesy common thing that their parents thought would be cute for the kid. I'm basically drowning in the Pokémon. And now we're at a convention. Are there seriously people getting dressed as these monsters? Yeah, yeaaaah. There's a kid in a Pikachu costume over there, and there's a mother and her child dressed as.. what, Kangaskhan? Ugh, after Mom's constant attempts, I've actually started remembering some of them.
..Oh eww, there's a guy over there dressed as an Audino. Didn't need to see that. And there's a girl dressed as Sexy Gardevoir or something. It's just.. so cliché. Seriously. There's people everywhere dressed as these things. And you can barely walk into another hall without seeing two or three Nurse Joys running around... including some guy dressed as one. Come on, seriously..?
Even so, Mom is still furiously dragging me towards the main hall. It seems she's dead set on getting me to listen to the panel. "Here, take a pamphlet." "No, I don't ne.. oh come on!" Yeah, just got it shoved into my hands, and with Mom not stopping, I can't exactly give it back. Might as well read this.. Let's see.. Pokémon conference.. blah blah blah.. Panels with Juniper, Oak, Birch, Rowan and Elm, worldfamous Pokémon Professors!.. Oh crap.
Hang on, what is.. We already missed the panels, since they started at 10 AM apparantly.. but.. why would we.. "HERE WE ARE! Come on, I signed you in for this, go for it!" "Huh, wha?" ... Uh oh.
"Mom, no. I'm not interested, I'm not gonna start travelling or anything.. Why would you force me to do this..?" "..Alright. Just.. hear me out, okay..?" Mom's acting pretty weird here.. "You know that I'm pretty much adoring Pokémon and everything, but I never had the chance to get you a friend or companion. You're always singled out at school because you don't like Pokémon, and I get it, you don't want to travel or do the gym challenges.. But.. at least get a Starter Pokémon? I.. I know, you're not interested. But.. do this for me? I won't force you to travel, but at least.. try to get along with the Pokémon, dear.."
Great. She's guilt tripping me. In the middle of the crowd of people. Who're.. looking at us because I'm apparantly next in line for this. "Just.. go on. All the professors have gathered here with sufficient starter Pokémon.. just.. take one. It's okay."
"..You look a bit old to start as trainer." "Ah, leave the kid alone. In Unova, quite some trainers start out when they're 16, so why would it be a problem.." "It's not, I just.. Ah.. Any Pokémon you would be interested in?"
I'm basically just looking left and right now.. Squirtle, Torchic, Snivy.. They've really gathered all the starters from Unova, Hoenn, Kanto, Johto and Sinnoh.. That's 15 Pokémon to choose from. Most trainers get to pick from 3, don't they.. If only Edent had their own unique Pokémon, I would've just picked from our own regional starters. But now..
"..Okay, you know, I'll just play along. Any of you Pokémon interested in just sitting around the room all day with me, basically being a glorified pet?" I see Oak raise an eyebrow, but I really don't care. Most of the Pokémon blink and look at each other, as if they know what I was talking about. I guess that didn't work. Well, then, eenie, mee"TOTO-TOTODILE!" Whuhwhat? "Totodile!" ... It seems there's one.. hyperactive Pokémon among them. Which basically makes me inclined to NOT pick them, since he'll probably need lots of attention.
"It seems Totodile is enthusiatic about doing nothing all day." Elm. Ofcourse you would talk, since Totodile's from your region. "Why don't you take her along?" "I guess.. wait, her? This.. This Totodile is female?" "Well, yes. Is that so weird?" "..I.. I suppose not. Just a bit suprising."
..My mom's face is priceless. Y'know, I'm really not into this Pokémon thing, but the smile she's giving me just because I got a Pokém- "Err, shouldn't you put her in a Pokéball?" "..Huh? Uh.. Right, I guess.. though.. Do I really need to?" "..Well, just to validate Totodile is your partner now. You won't need to keep her inside a ball.." I get a red and white ball thrown at me, which I obviously catch. Without me being able to do anything, though, Totodile has headbutted the ball out of my hand, and.. got.. absorbed inside. Right.
"Heh. It's kind of a silly little thing, isn't it." "She's YOUR silly little thing, dear." Mom has already walked up to me, with a smile that basically says she's really proud. I don't get it, all I did was get a Pokémon.. though I guess that IS all she wanted, huh. "Now, you should let her out and give her a nickname." "..Hm..? A nickname.. I guess I know of something.."
"Come on out.. Smile." And Mom throws me a bit of a weird look. I guess 'Smile' may be a bit odd as nickname.. The Totodile looks at me questioning. "Yes, I called you Smile. Is that okay with you, hm?" Aand all it does is jump up and down, shouting it's name again. "That means she likes the name, hun." "Right."
I'm not sure what to do now, though. I guess I can recall her into the ball, but she seems happy to be outside. Besides, there's Pokémon walking around everywhere, so I don't see why Smile couldn't be.. "Over here, honey.." "Huh, what?" Mom has walked into a different hallway, and.. I.. think I lost her. She definitely went over here, though, so..
"Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the 27th Annual PokéCon Tournament!" ..Ah, the tournament hall, huh. Hey, looks like our local gym leader is actually here, too. Figured Graham would, to be honest.. He's pretty much always around when it comes to Pokémon. Which I honestly only know because Graham is in my class. 18 year old Pokémon Gym Leader, ladies and gentlemen. Still goes to school and only accepts duels on the weekend. He's looking at someone else though.. on the stage. Lets see.. some guy in a leather jacket? No.. the man standing next to him. Red hat, red and black jacket. And a Pikachu on top of his shoulder.
"We're proud to announce this years Tournament will have some VERY SPECIAL CONTENDERS! I present Kanto's past and present champions! Lance! Blue! Green! ..and current reigning champion.. Red!" So he's the legendary trainer Red. Rumoured to have been defeated only one time in his life, by the champion of Johto. And even more people say that never happened.
"They've brought with them their latest additions to the team, meaning they have very inexperienced Pokémon.. This Tournament is free for EVERYONE to enter, and all four champions will go through the same rounds as everyone. Will their low levelled team make all the difference, or will their personal experience make them too hard to defeat?"
"..NO." "Wh.. how did you..?" "Because it's obvious. You ran into this hallway knowing I'd lose you, and now you were going to register me for this tournament, weren't you?" "..N..nooooooo?" "..Mom." "..Okay fine, yes, I was going to. But I don't think I need to." "..Why not?" "Because despite the loud music and the people around us, you complaining was pretty loud and everyone is looking at you." "..Wait wha-?!"
"..Hey, kid.. with the Totodile.." Oh crap. "Why don't you come up on stage and tell us why you don't want to fight?" "..Er.. I only just now got my Totodile.. Barely 5 minutes ago." "..And she's already attached to you like that?" "..Wait, how do you know it's a girl?" "Because girls notice that, silly." Wait, girl..? I only now realized that while the conversation started with the announcer talking to me, it seems Green had grabbed the microphone from him.
"Come on, kid. Let's give them a good fight." Blue had walked up and basically just now.. Well, you heard him. "Come on, be a bit more mature. I had assumed you to grow up when you took Giovanni's place as Gym Leader, but it seems you're still as immature as.." "When I beat you, Lance?" "..And subsequently got beaten by Red, yes." Speaking of Red.. seemed he had vanished from the stage.. Huh. You'd think a kid with a Pikachu on his shoulder would be noticed.. Then again, Smile is also sitting on my shoulder, so. Wait, when did she..?
"Well.. can we at least know your name? I'm Red." And he's standing right next to me. "Er.. Baccato.." "Well, Baccato.. if you don't want to fight, it's okay.. I can see your Totodile is really attached to you, though. Quite impressive, after only having her for such a short time." "Er.. thanks." "Anyway, don't feel forced to get on stage. They're just messing with you. Anyway, I should get back up.. But.. why don't you stay and watch? Maybe you'll get interested in Pokémon and battles." "Wait, how did you..?" He just smiled, and turned around and got back on stage.
..And that's my first day. Nothing happened past here. Mom took Red's offer to have me watch, and.. well, suprise suprised, despite all having inexperienced Pokémon, the four leaders made it to the finals, beating everyone. Red defeated Green easily, and Blue defeated Lance easily. The match between Red and Blue was pretty intense, but Red managed to defeat him.
..Well, that's it for today. I'll show you more later, but it's getting late right now, and.. No, I deserve a break. Besides, after all that happened, showing everything at once wouldn't have any use either.
I'm sorry. I'll show more, but.. this is exhausting. Really. So.. come back tomorrow, alright..?
In this topic I will leave behind any errors that are known to me and will be fixed in the hopefully nearby future.
So apparantly I'm using too much of the CPU that the hosting offers.
Over 80% of it related to the TPoRP subdomain. >_<;
Hence why I switched the chatango to a.. lesser available location, since it's one of the most cpu abusing things (which is ironic, since it's hosted on another site!) and I'm.. going to look up stuff.
I gotta find out how this all works and why we're using more than three times the usual amount.
Gonna keep you posted. If anything happens to the site, at least be reassured that I have backups. Lots of it.

In our efforts to continuously improve our services and make them even more stable and safer, SiteGround will be replacing our current hosting servers with new, top-of the-line hosting machines. In line with the introduction of the latest server hardware and to make sure you can enjoy the benefits of the latest technology we use, our server administrators will transfer the following accounts: sp-website.net, currently hosted on the following server: siteground266.com to the new machines.
For this reason, any of the subsites and the main site may have trouble loading after Monday. If this is the case, give me the time to fix it. 1:00-6:00 AM EST is also 7:00 AM-1:00 PM GMT+1, and since it's on a Monday, I'll most likely be at my internship- unable to properly fix this until I'm home. Which is kinda late. :/
I DOUBT there'll be many issues, but if there are, please be patient.
What? No, I have no ego. It's just true. I have proof~
Anyway, good day all. While Queen of Ice is working her butt off trying to copy-paste your numerous RPs, I'll be introducing myself.
I'm Speedy, also known as Suppeedi or SpeedyDVV. I've been an RPer for about 10 years now.
I started RPing around an IRC channel based on the old Bob and George webcomic. Ah, to be young again and making foolish mistakes. I started out my career as a godmoding ass. Worst.. plan.. EVER. It didn't take long for me to realize the error of my wars, and I've been slowly and silently adjusting my character up to specs.. and have been using said character for 10 years.
I've establish a quaint little forum called the Role Playing Zone, which turned into a very nice community pretty fast. And then I heard a friend was willing to host my forum, and I was like 'dude, TOTALLY'. The forum was, however, untransferable, and thus I began anew. The Neo Role Playing Zone, otherwise known as NeoRPZ, was born.
Still the current incarnation, surviving one transfer of phpBB to SMF, as well as FOUR (!) server transfers, and we're still going strong. Or we would, if we had more active members. X_x;
This is no time for advertisement, but if you click the [SP] button in my sig and look around, it'd be appreciated. Maybe a change of pace will do.. We're mostly 'Megaman-ish' based, but if we were to actually have REASON to make more boards, I would not be above posting another board, for say new topics like Digimon. (I noticed a trend on your previous forum concerning that.. )
Anyway, before you wonder 'wait, you're completely new, but you're ADMIN!?'.. I am also HOSTING your current forum. I am, however, WAAAY less restricted than SMFFY, and if this site goes down I'll have a backup waiting for you~
I'm also not one to interfere with the 'business as usual'. Even if you guys dont know me.. and essentially, neither does Queen of Ice.. (we met like what, one, two months ago on a different forum?) Please take my word for it that I do not wish to betray people's trust.
Anyway.. I'll look into some of your RPs here, maybe I'll even join one eventually. :3
And uh.. I like games. Alot. So yeah. I could talk about that, too, but it'd be a worse TL;DR than what I've already said thusfar.
Oh, and ah, I can be a douche at times, and completely random at other times. Overlook that at your own leisure, I'm usually a cool guy.
