Grace

a character in “Pokemon Journies!”, as played by RacoonMoon()

Description

Image
Species: Umbreon
Gender: Male
Moves: confuse ray/bite/yawn/dark pulse

Bio: Grace was given his trainer for her 5th birthday while he was still an Eevee. The girl, Lisa, wanted her Eevee to evolve into Espeon more than anything. She researched countless sources to find out how she could do so. Grace had no objection to what he evolved into but he did want to please Lisa, so he tried his best to comply. It took about a year until Lisa felt they were good enough friends to evolve Grace but the one thing her research didn't show. She made the mistake of trying to evolve him at night so instead of an Espeon she got a Umbreon. Still indifferent Grace enjoyed being an Umbreon but lisa couldn't handle it. The black and gold of an Umbreon was too different than her envisioned pink Espeon. Despite their friendship, Grace was sent to live with with Professor Cedar.

So begins...

Grace padded out the door with a sullen expression. He moved an ear it could block out some of the strong sunlight. "Um." he muttered in annoyance before eyeing some shade on the other side of the clearing. Halfway there he was pushed backward by a cyndaquil running by. He squinted his eyes with the means to get revenge for making him stumble but decided it wasn't worth it. He used confuse ray before turning away, hoping that it would at least get it to stop running. Finally reaching his shade he laid down and began to rest.

Grace opened one eye and stared at the stranger offering his the berry. He felt a slight annoyance that he had interrupted his nap but he would hardly pass up the free meal. Getting up slowly he padded over to the boy and ate the berry. "Umbreon." he said giving the boy a nod before heading back to his tree.

Grace watched the boy walk off into the forest. He seemed to have something on his mind. Perhaps he needs some kind of companionship he thought shifting his head to at least look in his direction and that cyndaquil didn't seem like he would provide it. Sighing he got up and followed the boy into the forest.
The forest provided better shade than his spot at the tree at least. He quickly found the boy against a tree and went towards him. He rubbed his fur awkwardly (for he didn't usually do this type of thing) against the boys knees before sitting down beside him. He didn't try and go back to sleep just yet instead gazing at up at the boy's face with red eyes and glowing rings. Perhaps he'd get another berry.

Grace took the berry graciously and quickly gobbled it up. The two berries had done well to fill him up so much that he didn't think he'd need another for the rest of the day. He hadn't come here to fill himself up though an yet he knew little of comforting humans. Briefly he thought back to his days as an Eevee and started to purr to the boy the boy. The sound was so foreign in his mouth that he had to force himself to continue.

Grace tried not to flinch as the boy started scratching his ear. Most people who got this close were bitten. In response to the boy's question he nodded his head. It partially to dislodge the boy's hand but it returned soon after. He continued his purring though the embrace was becoming uncomfortable for him. He hoped it would end soon.

Grace got his wish a moment later as the boy stopped his petting. Grace had given all of the comfort he felt neccessary and now he went on to explore the forest or perhaps head into the town. He decided that it would be good to see the town so he left the boy where he sat at the tree.

Grace kept on wondering the forest and soon realized that he didn't know how to get the town from here. If he was truly honest with himself he was lost. After about an hour even he couldn't hide it from himself. Whatever grace thought before retiring by a tree. The forest was far more active now but he dispelled every pokemon that came near.

After what seemed 20 min. Vulpix woke up, and looked around. He wondered off all happy, then spotted an unusual black pokemon with yellow rings.
He came up to it.

"Hello I'm Vulpix, what kind of pokemon are you, do you need any help?"

Grace heard the pokemon talk to him and at first only flicked his ear to show he heard her. Would anyone just let him sleep today? he thought only half joking. She was already braver than most pokemon if she was willing to talk to him. I guess that earned her answer.

"I'm an Umbreon." he said what he needed and no more. He would hardly admit that he was lost. He gave a muted sigh. If he couldn't be here alone he might as well not be here at all. Slowly he got up, stretched his limbs and walked. He still had no idea where he was going but he was bound to find something eventually. Even though he was walking off he got the feeling Vulpix would follow anyway.

Vulpix was like going, WOW AN UMBREON, Vulpix had heard from his family long ago about Umbreons, but forgot. As he Watched Umbreon leaves, Vulpix followed with a skip.

"Hey Umbreon, if you want to know the truth I'm lost also. So how about we form an aliance, you be the bronze, and I'll be the scavenger for food. And also, before you confuse my gender, I'm a boy."

When he found out Umbreon didn't stop walking, Vulpix started catching up with the Umbreon.

"That's a wonderful idea." Grace muttered vaguely turning his head in her direction. He didn't see what he got out of the alliance, for he was already full and could offer his own protection. Sadly he didn't think he would be able to say the same about the Vulpix so he decided to stay with him. He thought briefly on correcting the Vulpix about his name. He was an Umbreon, his name was Grace. Whatever, he could handle the inconvenience until he saw how beneficial this alliance would be to him. Until then he would keep his personal information personal.

He let her take the lead as he started to scan the area for other Pokemon while she scanned for food.

After many lessons of knowing names, and species they managed to form an aliance.

Vulpix for some reason thinks Grace really thought Vulpix was a girl, BUT VULPIX IS A BOY!!!!! At least he's trying to deciever the difference He thought.
With a rumbled tummy Vulpix smelled the air, BINGO!!!!!

"Grace I smell a bush full of Berries."

He decides to creeps toward the smell quietly

"We have to see if the cost is clear, bug pokemon are good at ambushes." When they got closer they saw a Butterfree, and a Mankey.

"Okay there pokemon over there, let me go to them and try to see what they're up to. Then I'll come back to let you know the circumstances. Ok"

"Okay." he responded. He had no problem with letting him call the shots as long as they made sense.

He watched as Vulpix strode up to the Pokemon looking cheery as ever. He watched the Mankey and Butterfree for any hostile movement and began planning out battle strategies. He was almost certain it would come to a battle because he had not once met a mankey who wasn't looking for a fight.

Vulpix walks up to the pokemon. The Mankey looked agitated, and the Butterfree looked nervouse.
Vulpix started saying "Hey how are ya'll"
Mankey started jumping and yelling like a Mankey would, "Agitated, I own this section of the forest, and this butterfree is trying to take my berry bush"
Butterfree shivered and said, "But I'm weak and need some berries, please let me have some-" "NOOOO" Mankey shouted
"Um, can I have a suggestion if it helps." They both stared at Vulpix. "What is it" They said.
"Well, why not give Butterfree the berries, and you Mankey get a berry and plant another bush. Because if you have two bushes you'll be able to have more berries. And I'll go back over there so you'll think about, then let me know what you decide. Okay"
They both stared and finally said "Ok, but if you trick us you'll pay"
Vulpix went back to Grace with a sweat drop on his head, and told him what's going on

Grace rolled her eyes at Vulpix's peaceful solution. Sure it stopped the two now but eventually the mankey would want more. Then of course he would pester the Butterfree for it's berry bush back. Mankey's were also impatient and a bush would take forever to grow. Besides the butterfree hardly needed an entire bush. No it would never work.

Without responding to Vulpix he walked confidently up between the two pokemon.
"Hey!" umbreon yelled and the pokemon stopped what they were doing to look at him. He walked up to the bush and tore off a branch with his jaws. He ignored the others reactions and tossed it under the butterfree.
"If your only hungry now, you don't need a whole bush." he said to the Butterfree. It seemed almost reluctant to take it but Grace just turned to the mankey.
"Got a problem with that?" He asked the mankey squinting his eyes. They both glared at each other until eventually the mankey relented and turned away.
"Don't think that you can intimidate me, umbreon!" The mankey screeched at him before running off.
Grace stared after the mankey but after a moment just shrugged it off. He was probably just hot air. He nodded to the butterfree before walking back to sit by Vulpix.
"Where next?" he asked wondering if her next choice would be as interesting as this one.

Vulpix looked at amazment on Grace's intimidation, Vulpix doesn't do that unless it's needed.
As Vulpix thought about what Grace asked, he replies "Well I'm sort of exploring this forest, but also want to get out too...ah...ah....achoo."
A flare came from Vulpix only a little, and grinned "hahahaha, I'm glad it didn't started a forest fire. Otherwise were in trouble."
Vulpix looked at Grace, still curious about what Vulpix parents told him the story about Umbereons.
"Um Grace, when I was a cub, my parent's told me a story about Umbreons. But I there's something I forgot about the story, it was something they did heroicly, or something. Do you know any such stories?"

Grace allowed herself to smile at the small flame came from Vulpix.
"I'm glad it didn't started a forest fire. Otherwise were in trouble."
Grace nodded and kept the smile on his lips. It was nice to smile every now and then especially since he so seldom did it.
"Um Grace, when I was a cub, my parent's told me a story about Umbreons. But I there's something I forgot about the story, it was something they did heroicly, or something. Do you know any such stories?" Vulpix asked him

Grace stopped walking and sat down on the spot. Vulpix had certainly earned his trust but Grace was still wondering whether to divulge personal information. He turned and looked at his genuinly curious face and decided that he could spare an answer.
"No. I wasn't raised up to be an Umbreon." He chuckled remembering back to his Eevee days and how he was almost an espeon. "But if you remember make sure you tell me."

"Yes sir! It's a promise, and when I make a promise I keep it no matter what. If we get separated I'll try to find you." Vulpix did a solute, and a facial expression as if he was in the army.

After his solute, Vulpix took his Bandana, and made sure it was nice and clean. After inspecting it he put it right back on.

Then he beamed up with a business look on his face, and sat in front of Grace; which usually means this is a time to get serious.
"Alrighty, first off we been in this forest and have no idea who or what is in here. It's our job to find out what we're up against, who we can trust as friends, and who we can lable as a Big Fat Bully. Secondly, we need to make sure we know our way around the forest, finding places that are safe to go through, or places that are dangerous. Do you have any thoughts on this Grace?"

"Okay, then." he said surpressing a smile. Vulpix would certainly keep him interested. He watched as Vulpix took his bandana and inspected it along the ground. He cocked his head in confusion. Vulpix was a wild pokemon. Why would he chose to dress himself like a human? Oh well, he had already decided that Vulpix was odd so this was just another thing on the list.

He was about to ask him about it when he turned to him seriously.
"Alrighty, first off we've been in this forest and have no idea who or what is in here. It's our job to find out what we're up against, who we can trust as friends, and who we can lable as a Big Fat Bully. Secondly, we need to make sure we know our way around the forest, finding places that are safe to go through, or places that are dangerous. Do you have any thoughts on this Grace?"

Grace lowered his head to think before coming up with his answer. "Well I'm pretty sure we've -or rather i've- made enemies of the mankeys but if we tried I guess we could make friends with the Butterfree back there." A small pause "But your right, first we should figure out the forest. I say that we should find somewhere to camp. Somewhere we can keep food and somewhere we know is safe to sleep. Once we have that we can fan out from there. And in the process we're bound to meet some more pokemon."

Vulpix took Gace's thoughts into concenderation, "Yes our camp needs to be a place that only you and me know, and trusted pokemon too. But before we begin finding it, we need to make sure it's a place where no pokemon knows of it's existence. Because if they did, they'll probably steal stuff that we already have; especially a Mankey." As Vulpix says Mankey, he started to shiver. Vulpix had never seen a Mankey he didn't liked. "So, should we begin now?" with a gleam of kidish happiness.

"Yes." he said glad to see his playful face again.

As he walked with Vulpix he wondered where they could make this secret base. Nowhere they had passed so far had struck him as desolate or hidden from other pokemon. But still he kept his eyes open for anything that might fit.
While they searched he decided that now was as good a time as any to ask his question.
"Why do you wear that? the bandana- I mean." He asked while searching a hole by a tree. Wouldn't work he could smell diglet at the edges of the cave.

As Vulpix walked, he heard a question that gave him a heart warming smile. After being sentimental he began to answer Grace's question as he looked at his bandana.

"Well, Grace, it's about a story that changed my view on humans. When I was young, leaving my parent's den; I gone exploring the world that I'll eventually be a part of. As I was traveling people really didn't take notice of me, and if they did, well lets say it didn't end very well. Because of this, it gave me the impression that humans don't really need me, nor care about me. Until one day, as I was playing on a branch near a rushing river, I slipped and fell. It seemed like 15 min. have passed, and I was soaking wet; which isn't good for a fire pokemon. Anyways, a hand had picked me up from the river, as I looked up, it was a human. It took me a minute to realise he's different from the others I met; he was kind, caring, and heartwarming. He kept me for a few days, so I can regain my strength. Then after my last day, when I was ready to leave, the human gave me a blue bandana. It was nicest thing that anyone had done for me. And so with a happy smile, I left him, knowing that somewhere in this world they're people like him."

As he told his story, Vulpix started to tear up a little bit with a heart warming smile still on his face. He looked up at Grace, with a grin and said, "Well that's the story of 'Vulpix and the Bandana', I'm glad you asked me. Usually other pokemon call me an OCD Humans Freak, I still have no idea what that means though."

Grace lifted his head out of the hole and watched Vulpix tell her story. It amazed him how quickly Vulpix changed emotions. In the short time he'd known him he'd gone from happy to serious to happy and then sentimental.

"And thank you for telling me." Grace responded before going back to his search. He wondered if he would ever be able to tell his own stroy with such ease. It was the complete opposite of Vulpix's story; tearing him away from humans instead of making him like them.

He walked ahead through a copse of bushes and before his eyes was a cave. Perfect he thought before walking up to inspect it further. It was probably bigger than what they needed and he could hear Zubat screeching inside. They won't be much of a problem he thought and was about to pounce forward when he stopped himself. Bah, he had a partner now. He couldn't just charge in. He turned around and it seemed as though the Zubat's screeches were now laughing at him.
"HaHa cowardly umbreon!" came the Zubat chorus
"I'll be back for you later." He hissed back before turning back to Vulpix.
"Hey, I found something."

"With pleasure." Grace responded with mischeivious smile. He wasn''t quite sure whether Vulpix wanted to make friends of the Zubat's or fight them but Grace knew what he wanted to do.
Next thing he knew he was inside the gave using bite on every Zubat that came close. His night vision easily picked out Zubat's that tried to send in a bite of their own. In the same way his now glowing rings picked him out as a target in the dark cave. Every now and then he would see a spout of flame to remind him that Vulpix was fighting too. He stayed one step ahead of the Zubat while still matching bite for bite and confuse ray for confuse ray. Eventually the Zubat decided they couldn't win against the Zubat and fled with the ones still fit to fly. The ones that couldn't were carried in the talon's of those that could.

Grace followed them out eyes still wide from the thrill of battle.
"Who's the coward now." Grace taunted. He hoped that his taunt would provoke at least one Zubat to turn around. Anything to continue the battle for at least a few seconds.
"We'll be back umbreon!" they called back witout turning around.
He seemed to get this alot lately so he just shrugged it off.
"Yeah and I'll be waiting." Grace said turning his back to them.

As he slowly walked back into the cave, his usual calm settled over him. Instead of searching one of the other cranies in the cave, he collapsed on the ground and once again tried to nap.

After that intense battle of Zubats, Vulpix learned the move 'Tailwhip' and 'Roar'. After having his own excitment he sees Grace collapsed and fell asleep. Vulpix gave a small smile, and started gathering piles of sticks in the cave. After all the sticks been stacked in a nice pile, Vulpix used 'Ember' to start a small camp fire next to Vulpix and Umbreon.
After settling down, Vulpix started to sing a song that he had no idea where it came from. Probably from that human who loves that anime Fruits Baskets.

[The words with extra letters indicate the words being stretched, or the notes change within the word]

(Song Starts) "I was so happyy when you smiled, your smile breaks throught the clouds of greyy. All from the sunny days that liiee in sleeep. Waiting with patience for the spring, when the flowers will blooom renewwed again. Knowing there's more beyond the paiinn of today. All though the scars of yesterday remains, you can keep on living as much as your heart belieeeves. You can't be born again, although you can change. Let's stay together aaallwaaayys." (End Song)
