I so should not be here right now XD actually I'm in the middle of my finals but yeahh this idea came to my head and i couldnt resist..i had to get it out before i forgot it XD
anywaiiz this is my very first pokemon story and i have done my best to keep them in character but if they are OOC then I am very sorry. I know this idea has probably been done alot but as far as I know, mine is different...hopefully I'm right.
by the way the name 'G-PAD'... i am aware it has been used before and if someone has a problem with me also using it then please let me know and I'll change it, but other than that..
DISCLAIMER: I do NOT own pokemon or the many songs that will be used throughout this story...if i owned pokemon then Ash and Dawn and Drew and May would have long since been together :) and if i owned the songs id be super rich and famous and clearly im not...
however i DO own the storyline :)

A bright light shone through the pitch black arena as cheering erupted from a crowd. Four figures rose up onto a platform where a smirk formed on each of their faces
"You guys ready to rock!" the first boy shouted into his ear set. He had short russet coloured hair that was spiked to perfection and dark brown, almost black eyes. He was wearing a purple muscle shirt underneath a white full-sleeved leather jacket. On his neck was a yin-yang necklace and his feet were adorned with white and purple sneakers. His name was Gary Oak.
"Then let's rock!" the teenager to his left shouted. He had chartreuse coloured hair that looked as if it were made of silk and matching green eyes that resembled emeralds. He wore a half-sleeved skin-tight white shirt that allowed his muscles to be easily seen. On top of the shirt was a sleeveless black leather jacket with baggy black pants. On his feet were black and white sneakers. His name was Drew Hayden.
A catchy beat began to play as the two other boys began to walk to the front of the stage stretching their hands out for the others to touch, while Gary and Drew tapped their feet to the beat of the music. The first boy had wild black hair that was spiked in every way possible; it was contained by a simple red and white cap with a small blue symbol that resembled a ball. He had dark chocolate brown eyes that could make even a stone melt. He was wearing a blue and white hoodie that was zipped up, creating a yellow strip down the middle of it from the zipper's colour. He had black and red fingerless gloves and black cargo pants with red and black sneakers on his feet. His name was Ash Ketchum.
The last boy had a dangerous look in his eye, which ironically was what attracted girls and even a few boys to him. He had purple hair that went down to his neck and onyx black eyes. He was wearing a purple and black jacket that had black sleeves and collar while the vest was purple. The collar was popped up and he was wearing black jeans with dark purple and black sneakers. His name was Paul Shinji.
These four boys where the teen hit sensation 'G-PAD' made up from their names of course, Gary, Paul, Ash and Drew. All were simply seventeen years of age and had just begun their career. This was just another concert of theirs that was occurring in Jubilife City within the Sinnoh Region. All of them however, were from very different areas. Gary and Ash were both from Pallet Town in the Kanto region, while Drew was from LaRousse City in the Hoenn Region. Paul however, was from the Sinnoh Region, in Veilstone City. They had all attended 'Azelf Academy for the gifted' that was located in Hearthome City in Sinnoh and became fast friends, where they formed a band that had only recently become famous.
'Party Rock is in the house tonight, everybody just have a good time' Ash began singing
'And we gon' make you lose your mind, everybody just have a good time' Paul continued
'Party rock is in the house tonight, everybody just have a good time' Gary repeated Ash's words
'And we gon' make you lose your mind, we just wanna see ya~' Drew stopped abruptly as if to create suspense to the song, but picked up again after a few seconds silence
A sudden techno instrumental began and all four boys began shuffling in their choreographed dance moves. The crowd erupted in cheers and screaming fan girls...and boys. This was only their third concert and they were already a hit sensation, ranked number one on the top hit lists and already had an album out that was sold out within minutes. The instrumental stopped and Gary picked up again
In the club party rock, look up on your girl
She on my jock nonstop when we in the spot
Booty move away like she own the block
Ash picked up from Gary as he continued singing
what the track I got to know
Top jeans tattoo 'cause I'm rock and roll
Half black half white domino
Gain the Money…Oh-pa-doh
Paul began to sing again as Gary stepped back and began to dance with Ash and Drew
I'm runnin' through these hoes like Drano
I got that devilish flow rock and roll no halo
We party rock yea! That's the crew that I'm reppin'
on the rise to the top no led in our zeppelin
They reached the chorus again and Drew began singing
Party rock is in the house tonight
everybody just have a good time
and we gonna make you lose your mind
everybody just have a good time
They all joined in again and began to sing together as they stopped dancing and half-slid-half-jumped to the front of the staged stretching their hands out for the people in the mosh pit to touch.
Party rock is in the house tonight
everybody just have a good time
and we gonna make you lose your mind
We just wanna see ya! ~
Here they stopped once again as a suspenseful silence before Drew picked up and began singing again
Everyday I'm shuffling
(A.N I know it's not the whole song, but the next chapters will have full songs :))
The song eventually came to an end and the crowd erupted to into even more cheers than throughout the song. It was amazing that people didn't go deaf. The cycle continued as they sang more songs together before finally reaching the end.
"Hey guys!" Ash shouted to the crowd "It's been fun but as always, all good things must come to an end!"
"But you know what?" Paul continued and they all turned their microphones towards the crowd as a means of them answering his question
"WE DON'T WANNA GO HOME!" came the almost ear-splitting reply from the crowd as the boys smirked and nodded.
"Exactly right" Gary spoke
"So looks like there's time for one last song" Drew ended as a new rhythm began playing and all four boys began clapping their hands together above their heads, gesturing for the crowd to copy them as they began singing.
'Check that out, Check that out, that's my song, that's my song' Ash began
'Grab ma drinks I've been waitin' much too long, much too long' Gary continued before turning to Paul, signaling that it was his turn
'And this girl in my lap, passin' out, she's a punk'
'The last thing on my mind is goin' home~'
Paul finished and gestured to Drew who began to sing the bridge of the song while the others became his background voices
'From the window (from the window), to the wall (to the wall)'
'This club is jumpin' (club is jumpin'), till tomorrow (till tomorrow)'
'Is it daylight? (is it daylight?) Or is it night time (is it night time)'
They all took turns in the words then
Gary: 'One o'clock'
Paul: 'Two o'clock'
Ash: 'Three o'clock'
'we gon' tear the club up till, till, till, till, till, till,'
The stopped taking turns and all began singing together for the chorus
'Aye Oh...we say Aye Oh'
'Daylight comes and we don't wanna go home'
'Yeah so, we losing control'
'Turn the lights low 'cause we about to get low'
'Let the club shut down'
'We gon' go oh, oh, oh'
'Burn it down'
'To the floor oh, oh, oh'
'Aye oh, we say aye oh'
"Daylight comes and we don't wanna go home'
Their final song came to an end and they waved to their fans in Jubilife City, thanking them for attending the concert before walking off stage, however, not before Gary pulled off his sweaty jacket and threw it into the mosh pit for a tug-of-war to occur.
"Wow...being famous is tiring" Ash complained as he plopped down on a couch in their dressing room backstage. He breathed out a heavy sigh before grabbing a bottle of water and guzzling it down in an attempt to satisfy his drying throat.
"Yeah but it has its benefits" Gary replied as he too drank some water while setting himself down on a beanbag "like all the fans and publicity and of course the money...I mean, we're living large now!"
"It's not that different to me" Drew shrugged indifferently as he leaned against a wall
"That's 'cause you were already rich nimrod...it's different for us" Paul answered as it if was obvious. He set himself down on the couch opposite Ash before continuing "you were the 'famous coordinator' Drew Hayden as well"
"Still am...I just don't do coordinating anymore, but I'm still known as a famous coordinator and now a singer too" Drew smirked in reply before flicking his hair, only it failed because it was too sweaty. He made a disgusted face before walking towards the bathroom "I'm taking a shower"
"I'm next!" Ash yelled out towards Drew's disappearing figure and stuck up his hand as if he wanted to answer a question in a classroom.
Gary sighed in content and stretched his arms behind his head "I'm happy with this life...and the way things are going, I'm gonna stay happy 'cause we'll be famous for a long time"
2 years later...
Where are they now?
The once famous teen sensation group 'G-PAD' has not been heard from in a long time, infact it's been at least six months since they stopped mid-tour and just disappeared from the music world.
The same question is being asked all over..."where is' G-PAD'" and are they ever going to make a come-back? If so, it had better be soon, before they become old news and are proclaimed 'wash-outs'
"WHAT!" a yell echoed throughout a mansion located in Sunnyshore City, Sinnoh. The boys had decided to move there because of the nice weather and close-by beaches. They had many mansions in every region but this one was their most prominently used.
"WHAT THE HELL IS THIS!" The now, nineteen year old Gary yelled in frustration as he threw the magazine he was reading towards the wall, but ended up hitting Ash in the face as he was walking by.
"Ow! What the hell Gary? What are you yelling about?" he asked curiously as he rubbed his head while picking up the magazine. Drew and Paul came into the living where Gary was sulking on the sofa.
"What's with you?" Paul asked, glaring at his friend and fellow group member for disturbing him
"WE'RE WASH-OUTS!" the others raised an eyebrow in confusion
"Wash-outs, who said?" Drew crossed his arms over his chest
"This magazine said" Ash answered for Gary as he handed the others the magazine. They both skimmed over it before groaning in annoyance
"See! This is what happens when we don't write new songs and just laze around all day!" Paul yelled angrily, directing his glare mainly to Ash.
"I'm working on it!" he replied in defence after catching the glare
"You've been saying that for the past four months Ash!" Drew retorted "we need a new song or we're done, it hasn't even been more than two years! What kind of group dies out after just two years?"
"He's got a point Ash...we really need a new song, otherwise we're as good as gone" Gary spoke up after finally beginning to calm down
"Relax boys I have an idea" all four heads shot up and turned around to see their manager behind them, a grin on his face and arms folded over his chest. He had dark purple hair that was tied up in a spiky pony tail and onyx black eyes that bared a similar resemblance to Paul. He was wearing a simple light pink button up shirt with baggy jeans.
"Oh yeah Reggie?" Paul spoke while rolling his eyes "and what pray tell is this idea? I can't wait to hear it"
"Well little brother, if you'd let me finish you'd know" he replied simply.
Their manager, Reggie Shinji, was the older brother of Paul and the reason 'G-PAD' got its big break. Reggie worked in the music industry and was more than happy for his younger brother's group to try out and aid them in the ways of the music world.
Paul grumbled but didn't bother speaking again and allowed Reggie to continue "I have a way for you guys to get back your names and be on every celebrity gossip channel, without being talked about your disappearance"
"How?" Ash voiced the question in everyone's mind
"Simple" Reggie unfolded his arms "you guys, need girlfriends"
No one replied; all four boys, even Paul, had the same clueless and confused expression. It took a few seconds before Drew was the first to snap out of it
"Been there, done that, no thank you" he spoke in an annoyed tone "the last girlfriend i had turned out to be a creepy stalker" he shuddered "she never left me alone...she even watched me while I slept!"
"...As disturbing as that sounds...Drew's right Reggie" Gary defended "we can't date a girl, let alone talk to one without her trying to molest us"
"What would a girlfriend do to our publicity anyway?" Paul asked, slightly bored
"Well until Ash can come up with a new song, it would be at least something for people to look at" he explained " it's not like you'll be in a proper relationship, as soon as Ash makes a new song...or a few songs if possible, you can dump them"
"Wouldn't that be wrong though? I mean, it's kind of playing with them isn't it?" Ash asked, scratching the back of his head nervously, if he didn't come up with a song soon, things could get nasty.
"It's not playing with them if they know" Reggie reasoned "and about what Gary said...aren't there any girls...any at all, you know that won't go psychotic for you guys? Maybe someone who knew you before you became famous"
The boys thought for a couple of minuted before Gary and Drew snapped their fingers at the same time
Paul glared at his brother "I refuse to participate in this...three out of four is enough" Reggie sighed and nodded, this wasn't going to last too long anyway...he hoped.
"Well I have no one...so how about we forget this...I mean I've already got half the new song done and-"
Ash was interrupted by Gary "oh really now? Why don't you show us then?"
"Okay...listen to this" Ash cleared his throat and closed his eyes as he began to sing
"Baby take it to the floor" he looked up at everyone hopefully but knew it was in vain (A.N cyber cookies and chapter dedication to anyone who can figure out this song ^-~)
"That's it?" Drew asked exasperated "in the last four months, all you could come up with is six freaking words!" Ash shrunk back in fear
"Alright Ashy-boy, you're finding a girlfriend...hey how about Dawn?" Gary questioned
"Dawn Berlitz? We weren't really good friends in high school"
"Yeah you were! You knew each other well and talked a lot too"
"I guess" Ash sighed in defeat, there was no way he could win this
"Great!" Reggie said happily "so you guys get in touch with them and I'll handle the rest" with that he walked out of the room, leaving the four boys by themselves
"Yeah...so, anyone got their numbers?" Gary asked. No one spoke up, however Gary and Drew turned to look at Ash expectantly
"What?" he sighed once more in defeat and took out his cell-phone "Okay, I have Dawn's number"
"Great! Now call her!" Drew ordered
"Now? But it's 10:53PM" she's probably asleep by now...or about to" Gary snorted at his reply
"Ha! A girl like Dawn wouldn't sleep until at least midnight and still be able to get up early in the morning"
"Whatever" was the last thing he said before browsing through his contacts, selecting Dawn's number and listening to the rings while praying she wouldn't pick up. After five or six rings he was about to hang up when a soft, sweet voice was heard on the other line
hope you guys liked it, and please let me know if should continue it or not :) as for the songs, cyber cookies and chapter dedications to whoever can figure them out...especially the one with only 6 words revealed ^-~
