Hey readers, it's Boshi here. I got an idea in my head because of all the Pokemon and Team Fortress I've been playing, and this story is the result... at least, it will be when it's finished. I know what you're thinking... "But you haven't finished your other stories yet!" Well, I'm gonna claim writers' block for now. I'm a little burned out on them. Also, I would advise you to play a game of TF2 before reading this, it will help you understand better. Now then, on to the disclaimer...
Disclaimer: Pokemon is owned by Game Freak, run by Nintendo, and Team Fortress 2 is owned by Valve. I do not claim ownership in any way, and all characters and names belong to their rightful owners. All I own is the computer I'm typing this on, and the idea for the story.
Misplaced Chapter One:
What the Heck is THAT Crap?
2Fort. A simple, yet devious arena for the mercanaries hired by RED and BLU, involving a sewer, a bridge, and two forts. Each has an intelligence room, deep in the bowels of each fort. Each intelligence room has two entrances, and they are not far from each other on the same floor. Each group of mercenaries must defend their own intelligence, while trying to steal their opponents'. The intel contains vital data and blueprints that would destroy the opposing group and wipe their fort off the map if used, for the blueprints and data pertain to large missiles, not yet constructed by neither RED nor BLU's Engineers.
However, this is a time when neither team is fighting, nor defending the intelligence, because the intel rooms are locked behind foot-thick blast doors. They'll be opened again the next day, when the newest intel is received from the Administrators, who never are on the battlefield, yet are always watching...
In the BLU base, Medic, Heavy, Pyro, Demoman- hereafter referred to as "Demo"-, Soldier, Sniper, Scout, and Spy are all asleep in their beds. Engineer is awake, making his rounds to his various sentry guns placed in ideal positions around the fort. One is hidden in an alcove near the Engineer's room, another is placed on the stairs leading down to the sewers, a third is outside the resupply room, and a fourth and fifth are placed inside the intel room and downstairs resupply room. You can never be too careful.
The Engineer is finishing up on the fifth and last sentry gun outside the resupply room upstairs, when he hears a loud thud that came from near the back of the base- from outside the intel room.
"Aw shit, what is it now?" he said to himself. Probably Heavy or Scout got up and wanted a snack or something. Then again, that darn RED Spy has destroyed his sentries during the night before, so it would be prudent to check to see what made the noise. The Engineer sighed, lamenting the loss of a few extra minutes sleep, and stepped over to the doorway and peered outside.
Something was climbing the stairs toward the intel room- but it was much too small for even a Spy to disguise as. It was having difficulty on each step, and bumping against the wall every now and again. The Engineer decided it wasn't a threat, but he wanted this over and done before he went back to sleep. He crept over behind the thing on the steps to get a better look.
Although there wasn't much light, he could tell it was a pale green, had a single horn on top of its head with a blunted tip, stood about a foot and a half tall, and its tail looked like a dunce cap with the point turned inside out, and fixed onto the creature's behind at the bend. The open part of the tail looked ragged and had triangular sections missing. All in all, it looked somewhat reptilian.
The creature stopped for a break on the seventh or eighth stair, and the Enginner stepped back into the darkness, so he wouldn't be noticed. He noticed that its eyes had red irises, and... was it wearing guyliner? Maybe it was just part of its skin. Its stomach had a banded brownish-yellow diamond on it, and it had no fingers or toes- but on each foot there was a protective-looking cover for the tip, almost like a toenail, but solid.
There was no way this little guy was harmful. The Engineer stepped out into full view and the creature jumped in surprise and uttered a squeak. There was a five-second staring contest, and the creature just sat there. Whether it was in fear, shock, surprise, or any combination of the three, the Engineer did not know. What he did know what that it let him step close and scratch its chin.
In response to this, the creature closed its eyes and smiled in bliss. The Engineer bent down to pick it up, and... failed. He tried again, and this time succeeded in getting it up to the top of the steps.
"Hoo-wee! You sure are HEAVY, li'l feller!" he said. Heavy suddenly appeared, as if from nowhere.
"Leetle Engineer, vhat is problem?... Oh," he said, noticing the strange creature for the first time, "Is leetle creature heavy?"
"Yep," said the Engineer. "He's VERY heavy. Think you can pick him up, son?" the Engineer said.
"Yes, I can." the Heavy said. He bent down... and had no trouble picking the creature up. The creature had apparently fallen asleep during their little chat and was now snoring gently in Heavy's big arms.
"He veighs about half of Sascha." the Heavy said. "About... seventy kilograms, I vould say, Engineer."
The Engineer was stunned at this. This little creature weighed SEVENTY kilos? If he hadn't tried to pick it up himself, he's have called the Heavy a liar.
"Just from lookin' at it, you'd think it weighs only SEVEN kilos..." he said, after a moment of silence, pierced only by the snoring of the creature. "We'll have to find a place to put him until we can figure out what to do with him."
"Indeed," the Heavy said. "Ve shall put him in your room for now, my friend. He is small enough to sleep in a cat basket... don't you have vun of those?"
The Engineer nodded, and they both went back downstairs to the sleeping quarters. Little did they know, the creature would cause some havoc and change around the BLU base...
