A Bit of a 'Downgrade' [OPEN]

Who: THE MAN, GONGENZAKA and you i guess
What: A MAN COMES OUT FROM THE GAME...And becomes Tree Covered...
When: Late Day 98 - Day 100
Where: Mainframe, The Lake, Carnival Grounds...
Warnings: N/A

[A WINNER IS YOU! - Late 98, FIRST COME FIRST SERVE, MAINFRAME]

[When the game cube rises back up, Gongenzaka pays no mind to the curious addition of a cable or two off his back. There are more important things to do after all, such as celebrate. They won. 'GAME OVER - COMPUTER WINS' is echoing in the air, and it is quickly joined by rousing laughter and excited yips from his snubbull.] HAHAAAHAHAAAAA!! [He laughs, grabbing the nearest person and pulling them into a crushing hug.] WE DID IT..!

WE'VE SUCCEEDED..!

[Did you need that spine you didn't need that spine right? (Also, you might be getting a bit wet. He is absolutely crying.)]

[DAY 99 - LAKE]

[It is strange, but once he returned to the Carnival, he began to feel rather...lethargic. He considered using the scroll of meditation to help recover some-after all, the day following when the Game touched down would be the start of the Performance Week-but eventually decided against it, instead trotting up toward the lake and springs. His intention had been to go to the springs, but...

...The minute so much water lays before him, he finds himself running as fast as his legs can carry him, vaulting off the side and crashing in with an enormous SPLASH. He doesn't so much leave as surface slightly, shaking off a bare minimum of the water as his proud pompadour falls flat over his face, the usual combined strength of gel and dryness falling apart.
] Hoooo... [Who knows...why he needed this much water, but he feels a lot better now, that much is certain. He moves some of the hair from his face-the black strands far longer than most would have likely expected from him, and their roots tinged with what could be a mix of green and brown.

...Hmm. Hopefully he didn't splash anyone...
]

[DAY 100 - CARNIVAL GROUNDS/TRAILER/COOKHOUSE]

[So. ...It appears this is why he needed the water.] A...AUH...

[Quite literally overnight, Gongenzaka's body becomes coated in plantlife-stretching from within his hair to move down along his back and shoulders, all through his tail and even along the underside of the taur-body he has. His silvery white fur is dotted with bark from the life now growing off of him, tendrils of equally pale wood coiling down through his limbs to allow various flowers and leaves to sprout from tufts of once 'flame-like' fur. The leaves and flowers, one will notice from any long distance, are at least themselves a 'flaming' red. Red, Japanese Maple, dark rose (nearly red themselves) sakura blossoms among them, and a few other plants that he himself can't fully recognize. His tail seems to have been completely replaced by them in fact-though despite all appearances, it seems people can still sit on his back if the question ever arises.

Or rather, they can sit there and not end up seated on twigs-it instead feels like a bed of flowers and leaves, as soft as the fur once was. (And he is, somehow, still wearing a T-Shirt today.)

It is not the only change, perhaps-but it is certainly the one that Gongenzaka pays most attention to, and certainly the only one he sees at this point in time over himself-Suzu the snubbull is also left with a minor change of her own in fact, and the pokemon follows him around for the day bearing a collar of moss about her neck, with similarly fluffy patches at the base of her ears like little bows.

It's.

Quite impressive, really, though he doesn't honestly feel it. If anything, as he makes his way from his Trailer to the Cookhouse for some food, he feels a little lost about everything.

[Maybe so, but he Is still wet, and that alone is something he should feel bad about causing. Or so he feels at least. Gongenzaka coughs, and nods.] Aah, that I did. It was somewhat challenging to keep from falling, but I, the man Gongenzaka, remained steadfast...!

...Until they retreated, it seems.

[ Ah, so he was probably on another Level, then, since Yamato hadn't seen Gon on his Level in the game cube.

Also, he's just going to try and wring some of the water out of his t-shirt while he's talking, don't mind him. ]
At least we won? I think I, uh, died, while trying to stop them, so you did better than me, at least.

[ OH SO GON WAS THE FINAL BOSS that explains some things. He still has no idea what Gon's final boss form was but. Well, Since he already looks intimidating on a normal basis until you actually talk to him, it's not difficult to assume the game cube gave him an even more monstrous form.

That's not the point, though. He's just going to shrug. ]


I was on the level before yours, I think. Suddenly got dropped into being a boss monster too.

[Indeed it does. Mostly. Somewhat.

Not really actually it was all very luck of the draw.
] Hmmmm, that explains how Steven put it, then...he claimed that you fell, but that there was nothing from there. Simply... [he waves a hand.] Level three.

Evidently, those of us guarding the levels had only one chance.
