Today we continue the Fairy-Type Tale, Snowy and the Seven Spoinks. Which will get a third and final installment next
In the first part we saw an Alolan Vulpix being born from a Ditto and his wife Queen Ninetales. But after the queen disappeared he remarried another Ninetales to take care of Snowy… things did not end up well. The queen was obsessed with having the highest IV’s and EV’s in the land as her Rotom Dex told her Snowy had surpassed her after eating some Calcium. She ordered the huntsman to kill the little pokémon, but he took pity on her and let her escape in the forest. As the Queen demanded a heart to devour everything seemed lost for Decidueye when he suddenly encountered Swinub.
Catch up on part 1 here, otherwise back to our story.
Chapter 4: A Cabin in the woods.
Snowy ran and ran until her little feet could not carry her anymore, tears flowing for her eyes still. How could her stepmother be so evil? Why would she need to die? Now she could never go home and eat food from that nice spot again! It was all so unfair. Eventually Snowy collapsed and fell of a small ledge, landing in a soft pile of leaves fatigue immediately took over as her world faded away. She would have nightmares that night of her mother being chased by those horrible capturing humans, with their delicious food. Yet the humans would then turn into her evil stepmother who grinned as Snowy’s mother was taken away. She was her father being fainted and she was all alone. The huntsman showed up as he shot a spirit shackle at her through her heart. With Snowy dead in her dream she jolted awake.
Confused she looked at her surroundings, she barely remembered last night. Where was she? There were some mountains nearby, big cliffs as well, here and there she could see some caves in the mountain side. She was near the edge of the forest, trees began to thin revealing more mountains ahead. If Snowy would have kept running she might have ran into a dangerous cave.. or worse of a ledge. Snowy was scared of heights so decided to stick to the forest for now.. carefully walking again on her wounded paws. She would not be able to walk very far today, she would need some rest and food. Using her nose she sniffed to see if she could detect some food. Her senses told her there was something sweet smelling nearby. Following the scent took the Alolan Vulpix to a small quaint cabin with the door being wide open. There were a bunch of apples just sitting in a crate near the doorway. Snowy was sure the pokémon who lived here would not mind if she took a single apple right? Maybe it would be better if she just asked. ‘Hello is anyone there I need help’ Snowy said while popping her head in the door. She got no response as she noticed the cabin was in terrible shape. It sure was a mess in here. ‘Hello? Please I am injured and very hungry’ Snowy said while sniffing a bit, fighting against tears. Still no response. Could they be out? The place looks like a pigsty! Seven beds standing in the room but all the linens are wrinkled terribly, the slatted bases completely crooked. It kinda looks like Snowy’s bad after she jumped on it waiting for her mother to tell her a story all that time ago. As Snowy walked inside she noticed the kitchen was a mess as well. It looks like someone tried to make pancakes with nanab berry, but the batter is both on the ceiling and the floor, like if someone tried to flip the pan way to soon!. There would also be a lot of apples and a bunch of very rounded rocks on the floor.. some rocks smooshed some apples, all in all this place looks like a mess. Snowy then decided ‘I will clean this house then take a few apples as payment’ And so she began to sang a song while cleaning as an aurora veil appeared around her.
The Queen licked her lips after devouring the heart, that tasted very well. The heart of her step daughter would have made her even stronger now! She would look to the rotomdex on the wall and speak her usually worlds. ‘Magic Rotomdex on the wall, who is the most valuable pokémon of them all’. The rotom looked up at her a bit tired. ‘Again, my queen I already told you.. but very well I shall oblige…scanning….’ the queen snarled at the dex, she would dispose of him soon enough. ‘Scan complete, While non hold as much Effort Value as Decidueye, non have more IV’s than Snowy, her EV’s are quite good too she nearly is the perfect pokémon to whom even you pale my que…..’ The rotom dex was hit by a powerful Hex attack of the queen. He lived.. but cried out in pain. The huntsman betrayed her, she would deal with him later, now she had to deal with Snowy herself. The Queen would push the bookcase away revealing a hidden staircase. Walking down the stairs she entered the dungeons that had ‘collapsed’ all those years ago. She glared inside the first cell she came across, a weak fox like creature was chained to a wall there. ‘Your daughter is causing me trouble!’ the queen said. Ninetales stood up looking weakened. The queen smiled back at her evilly. ‘I guess I am going to have to use the same tactic on her I used to kill our husband’. Ninetales looked shook and teared up..but tried to sound brave. ‘Snowy will never listen to you’ The Queen snickered. “Maybe not to me..but to an old lady perhaps’ The queen than reverted her disguises and turned back into a Ditto.
Chapter 5: The Seven Spoink
Hardy the Spoink came back from a day of looking for pearls and mushrooms. They found some of both in the caves and he and his six pals were nearly back home! Jolly the spoink was following him closely, a very fast spoink that had the smallest pearl but he was always high spirited. Hasty was the third in line nearly as fast as Jolly but while in the caves he would rush his work a bit causing him to be a bit accident prone. He would never be able to get his defences up in time. Naughty was the the fourth in line, he always kind of wanted to walk in the middle because he liked to trick other spoink. He was a bit beefier than most other spoinks some of his friends even said he looked like a Jojo’s character. He liked to wrestle and muck about but because of it he wasn’t the most intelligent of the bunch not being able to stand up to the mental might of his brothers. Behind him was Quirky, the weirdest of the seven, he wasn’t particularly good or bad in anything but he really liked to perform skits he saw on tv once. He was mostly known from portraying Manuel from Fawlty Towers really well. Behind him was Sassy, the female spoink of the group, she at times could be very hard to deal with, she wouldn’t allow any man to mess with her mind but she was by far the slowest spoink of the group. The others always kept asking her why she said they should talk to the hand, as Spoinks don’t even have any. Even though she was the slowest of the bunch the line was closed by Lonely, he walked at some distance of the group. Lonely didn’t care about the pearl hunt as much! He would much rather stay at home all by himself and watch shounen anime shows, he learned kung-fu by watching those. He always told the group that he preferred 2d pokémon over 3d, wishing that he could be 2d himself. He was a bit cowardly though.. when Naughty would wrestle him he would not be able to defend himself as he just defended his pearl.
Right before reaching their house they began to sing a song. “Ho Hey, Ho Hey, we survived another day’ followed by some cheerful oinking. Not only would this song not get copyright stricken, in this day and age no one would saying gayfully about going to work anymore, instead they would be relieved the day is over. As the song concluded the party of seven arrived at their cabin, sighing that they would have to try and deal with the mess again. Making pancakes wasn’t that easy f you are constantly bouncing. Their beds could also not really handle them jumping on it all the time but they had to make due. Their home was also filled with pearls that weren’t all that functional. Perhaps those could be moved outside.
But what was this! Hardy noticed the pearls already had been moved outside! Both the grey and the red ones. He could not remember doing that. “Hasty go take a look’ he ordered. The latter wasted no time and rushed inside, without thinking too much of its own safety. “Clean” he responded. “Don’t you mean clear’ Sassy asked. ‘No I mean it’s clean!’ Hasty pointed it’s stumpy hand to signal everyone could watch. As the seven gathered in the doorway, they noticed a perfectly cleaned home as well as three eaten apples. ‘Oh HECK NO’ Sassy shouted as she noticed a little fox like creature sleeping on her bed, which had been fixed by having an icy block under it now”
Chapter 7: Grampa Drampa
Snowy was woken up by seven loudly oinking creatures. “What is she” Lonely asked from a bit of a distance. “I know nothing” Qurikly explained from a distance. ‘She might be a shiny Vulpix” Hardy concluded. Snowy looked and yawned. ‘She hella cute” Sassy said. “I am Snowy .. I am an ice type Vulpix… I was wounded and hungry so I slept here… and took a few apples but I cleaned in trade…” Snowy sounded a bit scared and confused surrounded by so many bouncy Pokémon. ‘There is a bad person after me so I was scared and I have no where to go’ Snowy teared up again she was still having a hard time. The spoink looked at each other and huddled together whispering. Eventually Jolly stepped foward and said ‘Well we got some good news for you kid, if you cook and clean in this place we can let you stay here for a while isn’t that a good deal’ Snowy bucked in excitement. Then she had a realisation. Wouldn’t you get in trouble for reducing me , the stereotypically female character of this story to just cooking and cleaning, while you a predominantly male group moves to work?’ Sassy winked ‘Well I am a strong woman who can handle myself in the manual labour amongst the guys.. and you.. have fix the bed so your a little handyman as well, I think that should be enough to keep this thing PC’. Snowy nodded! Okay I will stay then! So Snowy took residence in the Spoink Residence with her growing closer to the cute little pigs as she made them nice meals they would not mistake for pearls
Meanwhile Queen Ditto was making preparations for it’s plans. Ever after fool of a “brother’ rose to the throne he had been planning to rule over this kingdom, as it had great IV’s and EV’s.. and the king had much lower scores. By capturing his wife he would cause the king to grief and then when it transformed into that same looking ninetales he knew the king would settle for her. Using the castle’s secret dungeons for it’s plans only Snowy was in the way of the absolute rule of Queen Ditto. Like Ditto did to her father , the queen would poison her as well. In a disguise she would hand the daughter the favorite berry of the king laced with a terrible poison that causes a fake death. Little did they know! To give this berry to Snowy the queen needed a god disguise though, looking through her prisoners she found an old drampa that kinda looked like an sweet grandpa. ‘Perfect , she said as her bodily features began to shift towards that of an bearded green dragon. Minutes later Queen Drampa rose from the dungeons , looking at the just recovered rotom she asked. “Magic Rotom Dex on the wall, what is the area in which I can find Alolan Vulpix’. The Rotom Dex displayed ONE tiny in the entire land. ‘Excellent’ the evil stepmother said.
A few days later, while Snowy was singing at home she heard a knock on the door. The spoink were away for pearl hunting so she was home alone. Snowy opened the door to find a old Drampa standing in front of the door. “Greetings Child” he spoke sounding a bit fatigued. ‘I have travelled across the land to sell peoples these delicious Aguav Berries, rumors have it they were the kings favorite, and after his unfortunate passing I haven’t been really making any sales.. I want to feed my grandkids. Snowy stuck her tung out. Eeew I don’t like Aguav Berries… My dad always ate mine.. and my mean stupid stepmother always tried to make me eat mine. She’s a poopyhead meany mo! And a whore to!’. Drampa bit his lip… “You should..not speak ill of people that much child… she is a great queen…afterall’ . Vulpix shook her head ‘No she is like the worst queen there ever was.. and she smelled funny almost like slime’ Drampa took a step back muttering. ‘Are you sure you would not try an Aguav Berry? Maybe I can get you some other berries what is your favorite then? ‘ He asked. ‘Well I like Pecha Berries’ the vulpix said after some thinking. “Ah yes I can give you some of these tomorrow is that okay?’Vulpix nodded and would close the door. That evening she would tell the Spoink off the berry salesman and they asked her to order some Oran berries from the man.
Drampa showed up the next day carrying some Pecha berries he had laced with the poison the previous night, it took him all night to make the brew as he had to reside in the wild , with the castle being to far away. This time the poison was sure to work. ‘Hello again little lady I brought your Pecha berries the first order is free.’ He smiled at her trying to look like the gentle old man in his dungeon. ‘Oh thank you.. my friends the Spoink want to order some Oran berries as well could we do that? ‘ Snowy asked while bucking with excitement for her own berries. ‘Only if I can see you eating one of those berries you like so much Nothing would make me happier than a cute little princess like you enjoy the fruits of my labour. Snowy ate one of the berries and smiled. “That was delicious mister.. but it did have a bit of a weird aftertaste… did you use like a lot of mulch to grow these?’ The queen was baffled to why it’s plans weren’t working. She should have dropped dead did the poison fail? Recovering from the surprise Drampa eventually spoke. ‘Ah glad you enjoy.. Oran Berries for tomorrow right?’ Our heroine nodded as they parted ways. Back in the woods the Queen yelled out to her companion who came flying towards her. Rotom Dex, Rotom Dex! Why didn’t the poison work isn’t poison supposed to be super effective on her? ‘ Rotom Dex started an automated bit speech ‘ When a Pokémon consumes a Pecha Berry it will be healed of any poison. The words the queen uttered after that do not belong in a fairy-tale but you might find them if you watch a Gordon Ramsay show.
Chapter 8: Long live the queen
‘Here are your Oran Berries dear the Drampa said the next day, why don’t you taste one to see if it’s good’. Meanwhile on the inside queen Ditto s mind was filled with rage, she had to make yet another version of poison and had not slept for two days now. Vulpix nodded and bucked in excitement to taste another tasty berry. ‘I’d like that’ she said, moving closer to eat the berry. ‘Oh wait I should pay first’ she said. The Drampa grumbled. ‘No try one first if they are bad you don’t need to pay’ Snowy smiled and happily ate the Oran Berry. Immediately she noticed something was wrong.’What is happening to me.. I don’t feel so good Mister Drampa’ .. the queen dropped her disguise and grinned. ‘Hahaha foolish girl.. I poisoned you just like your father did and now you will die like him and I will be the Pokémon with the most value!, I have been planning all this since I captured your mother in the dungeons’ Snowy gasped, not only by the realisation but also because she could not get any air. The queen was narrating their evil plans in some sort of monologue but before the queen could finish Snowy quite literally dropped dead.
In the caves meanwhile lunchtime had come, the Spoinks were happily bouncing together. For their lunch they would have some of the Pecha Berries , Snowy saved for them, she was such a sweet girl saving some of her favorite berries to hand out to her friends. While they all took a bite out of their piece of fruit together, Hardy Quirky and Hasty came to the same realization. ‘These don’t taste right, there is some weird thing with it. Hasty jumped to conclusions. ‘If these don’t taste right perhaps they are poisoned’ Hardy wanted to scoff this away but then remembered that Snowy told her a bad person wanted to harm her as his mouth fell open. ‘Oh my Arceus” we must go back this instance! The seven hopped home, Hasty and Jolly rushing ahead came home just in time to overheard a Ditto talking to vulpix on the floor. ‘And once I rid the world of Decidueye who is actually a Ditto as well, none can hold a candle against me and I shall rule this world forever. ‘ Jolly hopped up and said. ‘Hey blobbo step away from our friend’. The Ditto looked back at them. ‘She is dead anyway my job is done’ Hasty leaped towards her with tears in it’s little eyes. Oh my Arceus, you killed snowy you bastard! You will pay for this. The pig pokémon began to chase the pink blob , which fled quite scared. They might harm her.. she had no offensive moves, even if she had better IV’s she would have to transform into something. ‘She then turned and smiled as she turned into a spoink’ Now unable to catch up with her the Spoink soon fell behind.
“She is to fast Hasty said’ .. “It will be stronger than all of us. ‘I have an idea’ Hardy said’ ‘We all toss our pearls at her’ Sassy looked confused. ‘Are you trying to get us killed as well fool? If we toss our pearls we can attack anymore,.. and I doubt they heavy enough to knock her out’ Hardy nodded.. I don’t want you to hit her with the pearls, I want you to throw slightly over her.. or at least aim for the face. Soon they other Spoink realised his plan and they readied their pearls’ “You better duck or I am gonna outqueen you’ Sassy said while sloppily tossing her pearl. The queen grinned and ducked as commanded laying down on the floor’ Jolly’s pearl flew just passed her, she would be safe as long as she remained lying on the ground. A sensation suddenly hit the queen, something was wrong… why wasn’t her heart beating? What was this magic? Before the least pearl was tossed… the queen was dead her heart simply stopped beating.
And this is where we leave things for now! In the final part next week, we will see how the Spoinks will deal with the loss of Snowy and find out if there still can be a happy ever after for this group. We will also see what became of the huntsman! So my apologies for not being able to finish this as quickly as I thought I could, but my blog post would become to long otherwise! I hope you enjoyed nonetheless.
Remember I am not weird, just very pink!
Until we read again.
