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


[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..!


[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...


[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.


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.

[Steven is pretty much in shock immediately following the Game leaving, because he's honestly not totally sure what happened at the end there. It all got so crazy, and... he's been honestly terrified that things weren't going to work out, when it all came back to that final battle. And yet...

So, Steven is basically stunned and unmoving at first as Gongenzaka picks him up and spins around. Wha...?]

We won?

[He's just barely comprehending at this point. Meanwhile, a bunch of random sprites and binomes are being all like 'yaaaay' in the background.]


[personal profile] otoko 2017-05-16 12:08 am (UTC)(link)
[Well, at least it's Steven getting a massive and tear-filled hug. Changes are he's one of the few sturdy enough to take it! (Yuuya probably just built up the strength over time)

Eventually with another laugh, Gongenzaka sets Steven back down, chrome face grinning.
] We did! As you can see, there are no nulls to be found...therefore, we have succeeded Steven!

Without a doubt thanks to your help, I must add!

Day 100

[personal profile] hippocarnival 2017-05-17 12:36 am (UTC)(link)
[Yuya's hasn't been completely comfortable the past few days either. He's looking a little groggy from poor sleep as he keeps trying to scratch his back on the way to the cook house.]

Hey, Gongenzaka. What's--uh. [He stops, leaning over to stare at his new mane.]

... Does that ever stop happening?

DAY 99

[personal profile] walkonedge 2017-05-17 02:22 pm (UTC)(link)
[ The day after the whole Game Cube happens, he's exhausted. It's for a couple of reasons, one, he's never really been a fighter aside from the occasional brawl or punching his best friend in the face. Gabumon mostly did all the fighting for him, in all honesty.

Two, the move that did him in was magical lightning strikes, and his Rebooted form had a body made of metal. It doesn't take much of a genius for anyone to figure out that he died a horrible death in the Game, which is why the minute that he'd revived after the whole Game had concluded, he'd dragged himself back to the Carnival and slept. For a Long Time.

The edge of the lake is always kind of where he defaults to hanging out when he wants to just rest - it's probably a leftover habit from the Digital World and Japan isn't exactly a place where there are a lot of lakes around. Plus, it gives him some kind of open space to tinker with his harmonica without worrying about whether he's disrupting the sleep of the other people in the Backyard.

... So yeah, Gon, have a drenched Yamato peering at you while he pushes his hair out of his eyes so that he can figure out what the hell just cannonballed into the lake and soaked him from head to toe. ]

[personal profile] hippocarnival 2017-05-17 06:48 pm (UTC)(link)
"Medical matters"? [He wrinkles his nose a bit as he scrutinizes Gon's state.] So it's not normal to change this much? What happened?
otoko: (HRMMNN =3=)

[personal profile] otoko 2017-05-18 02:49 am (UTC)(link)
Ah... ....I, the man Gongenzaka, was rather severely injured...

For most, such changes can certainly occur, but only after far more time here! However I, the man Gongenzaka, required immediate medical attention, and so... [...Well, to put it lightly and vaguely,] ....And so, with the treatment, became exposed to just as much magic...

[He frowns.] I, the man Gongenzaka, cannot speak for this most recent one however... [...If he's 'made' of it, could that be connected though..?]
otoko: (OnO (MRP-))

[personal profile] otoko 2017-05-18 02:28 pm (UTC)(link)
[Oops. It takes Gongenzaka a moment to spot Yamato. Mostly he's busy blowing wet hair off his snout, shaking bits of water from his head while parting the curtain. It's a little odd to see the shadow around his eyes in this state, when it's obviously more of a mask of fur than anything his usual pomp caused.

But, as he turns....oh.
] AUH-!!

M-My apologies..! I, the man Gongenzaka, came here without thinking...! [YOU LOOK LIKE A MESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS...]
hippocarnival: (love me ✮)

[personal profile] hippocarnival 2017-05-18 05:49 pm (UTC)(link)
You were hurt bad enough they had to use magic to fix you? [Was Yuya not supposed to worry? Because he's worried.] Can all of this zreally be reversed when you go home...?
otoko: (:0)

[personal profile] otoko 2017-05-18 05:53 pm (UTC)(link)
[Quite, considering he died. But he says nothing on that-injury is one thing, but to say he's died? That it almost couldn't bring him back?

Gongenzaka nods.
] Auh-of course! [Not that he necessarily will-and he's already taken that into consideration.] For those who desire to return to normal, they carry a glamor until it reverses. It isn't all at once, from what I, the man Gongenzaka, have been told.

It's hard to imagine that working when you won't fit through doors anymore. [But... magic??]

You don't get injured like that a lot, right? Isn't it usually pretty safe?

[At least, safe enough nobody's life is in danger. He'd like it if his friends weren't likely to get killed or carded for once.]
walkonedge: (find out your reality)

[personal profile] walkonedge 2017-05-19 03:59 pm (UTC)(link)
[ TO BE FAIR, drenched Yamato doesn't look very much different from regular Yamato, unlike Gongenzaka, who Yamato doesn't recognise at all at least until he starts speaking. His voice?? At least, is ridiculously easy to identify.

So Yamato sweeps his hair out of his eyes and shakes his head, although he's also going to stand up so that his clothes can sort of maybe drip dry a little bit. ]
Ah, it's... okay? I just wasn't expecting it.

[ NOT REALLY, BUT WELL, WHAT CAN YOU DO. ] Did you come out of the game cube, too?
hippocarnival: (my adoring fans ✮)

[personal profile] hippocarnival 2017-05-20 12:21 am (UTC)(link)
[Yuya had spent very little of Alola indoors, so it's no surprise he missed that.

Gon's confidence boosts his own back up, at least, and he nods enthusiastically.]
Yeah, all right! It's... actually been pretty good here, but I'm glad nothing worse happened to you.
otoko: (uwu)

[personal profile] otoko 2017-05-20 12:35 am (UTC)(link)
Hmm! I, the man Gongenzaka, am glad to hear that-and more importantly, glad to say the same for you! Have you had any shows yet? [Because come to's day one of Performances isn't it?]
otoko: (-3- hrmnnnnn)

[personal profile] otoko 2017-05-20 01:29 am (UTC)(link)
[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.

[personal profile] hippocarnival 2017-05-20 01:30 am (UTC)(link)
Not yet. [He absently rolls his shoulder before reaching to scratch it as he talks.] I'm performing in the middle of the week, and then the end of next week. I think both of them are in the morning? When are you patrolling?
otoko: (uwu)

[personal profile] otoko 2017-05-20 01:34 am (UTC)(link)
Hmmm! Perhaps I, the man Gongenzaka, will be able to finally catch one of your acts then... [He nods, beaming.] I, the man Gongenzaka, have evening patrol, beginning tomorrow!
hippocarnival: (my mom is a punk ✮)

[personal profile] hippocarnival 2017-05-20 01:43 am (UTC)(link)
I guess I can't really watch you the same way, like we did back home. [He shrugs.] Do you miss dueling for people?
otoko: (:0)

[personal profile] otoko 2017-05-20 01:45 am (UTC)(link)
Hmmm? [Does he miss dueling?!] O-Of course..!

I, the man Gongenzaka, have been wondering if we would perhaps find time to duel each other at some point soon in fact..! [JUST THAT. WELL. Now they both have jobs, so that's not really happening with an audience.] Even if we cannot watch each other's duels, I, the man Gongenzaka, shall never tire of our own battles..!
hippocarnival: (great day to avoid all responsibility ✮)

[personal profile] hippocarnival 2017-05-20 02:14 am (UTC)(link)
You're right! Maybe we can clear the area by the lake long enough for a duel? [And given Gon's changes, it's probably a good thing he's not much for action cards.] There's always time when the performances finish!

[Scratch scratch.] I just hope I get used to going in an out of the mainframe before I go on stage.

[personal profile] otoko 2017-05-20 02:15 am (UTC)(link)
No doubt we can...! I, the man Gongenzaka, should think the shoreline will be perfect in fact..!

[And... ...He'll just laugh at that last bit.] I'm sure you'll be fine..!
hippocarnival: (✮ 103 ✮)

[personal profile] hippocarnival 2017-05-20 03:15 am (UTC)(link)
I just don't want it to distract me on my performance! And it got a lot worse after the game... I wonder if that has something to do with it?
otoko: (HRMMNN =3=)

[personal profile] otoko 2017-05-20 03:17 am (UTC)(link)
Ah....worse? [Uh oh.] ...Worse how?
hippocarnival: (✮ 72 ✮)

[personal profile] hippocarnival 2017-05-20 03:23 am (UTC)(link)
Uh--I've just been really itchy. Turning into things just makes my body feel weird.

[Boy does it ever.]
