Salutations, traveler, and welcome to Digimon Forum Roleplay — the biggest, and one of the most active, roleplaying websites based on the Digimon franchise around the Web! We are a non-canon, alternate universe roleplay where you can take on the role of an original Tamer, Spirit User, Digimon, or Xros General! Look below for important links.
"Eeeeh, like I said if I suddenly evolve, I'm going to alert some people... it was fine when I was in your house because it wasn't all that concerning if I evolve in closed space, but when it's on open space like this, I'm risking cops on my ass, you know!" Valt told Chinatsu.
"Basically it sends sign that there are battle here and such... Even if it's just a bit. That's why, I think there are other ways of doing it... do you mind if I do something else?
If that's a yes, Ryouta would take out a grapple hook gun. First he'll check what's going on, and if it's possible to shoot the grappling hook. If that's success, he would lift Chinatsu and passed the tree with the help of the grappling hook's power. If it's not possible, he would pull a card, then slashes it after clearing the surrounding. What is he slashed? That would be Kabuterimon's Mega Blaster. It should be enough to destroy this tree and just this tree, on which Valt would execute it Genkidama style. Whichever it is hopefully their action would bear fruit.
“C’mon, pleeeease? There’s no-one here but us!” China begged the blue reptile, but there was a distinct lack of cigar. She was aware of the risk of using Digivolution willy-nilly, but her inner child just really wanted to see Valt turn huge again and wreck some shit. Eventually, the MeTuber relented, allowing Ryouta to do his thing instead.
Now, what was that thing exactly? At first, the musclebound youth tried to use a grappling hook to latch onto a tree and pull Chi with him to the other side. “Ooooh, that’s just like the Legend of Xelda, isn’t it? Too bad my wheels can’t fly with us.” The disabled otaku pointed to her own wheelchair, which would make pulling a stunt like that highly inefficient. She would still need to be able to move around after they got through this obstacle.
Plan B involved a children’s trading card of all things, but this one was special, granting Valt the power to blast the fallen trunk to smithereens. It was a much cleaner solution that also catered to Chinatsu’s lust for explosions. “Woooo! That was AWESOME!!”
From there on, it was only a minute’s walk to the ‘secret spot’ that the unlikely group were searching for; A small clearing in the woods, seemingly untouched by Man’s hand, where the grass was vibrant green and the water in the nearby lake looked clear enough to drink from it. “Yes! We’ve made it! Looks nice, doesn’t it?” China asked her two companions with a cheeky smile on her face.
Well, the idea was to put the wheelchair in infini-store again, but... yeah, he guess returning it back to normal would be too cumbersome, so the Kabuterimon card did this well enough. But honestly, that was a bit excessive he guess? Eh well, whatever. It's cleared, so it's all good! It's all good yeah... Ryouta felt his neck creaking as he looked away from the reality of the attack that happened in front of him. Not only that it's clearing the uprooted tree, but Mega Blaster technically often executed as a ball of lightning that travels on ground. It practically smoothed the gravel too.
...Let's not care too much about it.
Huh, the secret spot turned out to be something like a clearing rather than a secret base or something?
"...It makes me wonder, but... usually secret places are more special right? I mean, usually there are like secret shack, or you hid it with something, by climbing over uprooted tree, or ducking under it to reach places where adult can't reach.... but for you it's this one? What's the significance? I mean, it's nice place definitely, but I'm more curious about the tale of what makes you chooses this place."
Chi couldn’t help but snicker at Ryouta’s clever observation. “Heh. I guess we saw ourselves as adventurers back then, not settlers. We found a small area that nobody else knew about, so that was a big enough reward for us. Kids in America build treehouses in their parents’ backyards anyway. Why ruin this place’s natural beauty, hmm?” The wheelchair-bound woman explained, before taking a deep breath, taking in the scenic, peaceful environment surrounding them.
“Being here certainly brings back memories, though… We did plenty of play-fighting here, usually with role-playing involved. You know, Goku versus Superman, that kinda stuff. Sometimes we would come here at night and gaze at the stars. I got my first kiss here, believe it or not. We were just kids, so it didn’t mean anything… Haven’t talked to the guy in years. I wonder how he’s doing. I’ve heard he’s studying to become a game designer…” The woman’s smiling expression turned mellow, as she stared absent-mindedly at the crystal clear lake in front of them. “Sometimes… I wish I could be like a kid again. Not physically, just mentally. To get joy out of the simplest and silliest things in life…”
Just as Chinatsu was about to confess having a midlife crisis at the age of twenty, her D-Tector suddenly started glowing with otherworldly power, much to her surprise. The words ‘Sprite Spirit of Nostalgia’ showed up on the screen, first written in Digimoji, before being converted into English and finally Japanese. “It’s… it’s working! I don’t know how, but it’s working! Crap… quick, what’s the phrase to transform again?” China asked Ryouta in an urgent tone. Never before had she felt her heart beating this fast!
Adventurers and not settler? Hmmm... Ryouta doesn't quite get what's the difference between both honestly... After all, who said that adventurers can't be settler at it too? Though it's indeed sceneric. "...Well, how to say... in big city like this, I guess secret places are like very rare... I think me and my friends also had the same problem... We eventually just settled on an abandoned hut somewhere. Apparently, my friend's sister and her friends made it. It's then passed to us.
...Thinking again about it, it's honestly lucky that there were no squatters who tried to claim that building for their own when we're using it as kids, or it'd be damn dangerous... None of us knows extensive self defense that can protect us against full grown adult."
Roleplaying and such, that's indeed brings back memories. "Six of us too, we used to play something akin to super sentai, hah! Well, ironically none of us really keen for the color red. Our leader prefers black, I picked silver, other picked orange, then purple, moss green, pink... It was chaotic when we said something like 'Hey, we can't be sentai like this without red, yellow and blue', but in the end we just rolled with it," Ryouta chuckled at that. "First kiss huh... Playing marriages back then wasn't our style, nor we really kiss one another because we're like 'ewww what' back then about kissing."
...Talking with Chinatsu honestly was fun. It felt like as if he got pulled to her pace too and starts thinking about the past.
"...............I think... I think, it's probably a good idea to reconnect with old friends. Bring them back to the secret base again. Sometimes people need a break from their daily activity and just to enjoy how good the past was."
What's the words?
"O-oh, right. It was 'Spirit Evolution', don't forget the slashing motion."
“Right, thanks!” Chinatsu nodded at Ryouta in gratitude. The phrase felt natural to her, almost like the tiny voice in her head that had guided her all the way there was telling her that the time had come, a ring of visible data floating around her wrist to signify that. All she had to do was imagine that her hand was a cereal box and her D-Tector was scanning the code. So, she did just that, posing like a true sentai superheroine, swiping the back of her hand against the device’s scanning portion and yelling at the top of her lungs. “SPIRIT EVOLUTION!!”
Her vision was impaired by a blinding light. She felt her clothes disintegrating, followed by her very skin, as her organic body was converted into something non-organic. Yet, the process didn’t feel painful in the slightest. She felt fuzzy and warm inside, almost the kind of feeling she had as a kid when opening a new present. She heard her own voice shouting at the climaxing of her transformation sequence. “Toy Agumon!”
The first thing China did upon opening her eyes was checking herself. Her hands and legs appeared to be made of… Legos?! She then felt her own body up; Cold, hard and very angular. Had she turned into some kind of golem? She tried to move her new legs - which she wasn’t sure how was even possible when this new body didn’t even have muscles - and to her surprise it worked. “I can… I can move my legs! That means I can walk, right?”
The newly-transformed Spirit Warrior didn’t wait for an answer, instantly jumping off her wheelchair. Her block-shaped feet landed squarely (literally!) on the ground without any trouble. “WOOHOO!! I can walk! I can walk!” She exclaimed in utter joy, eagerly running up to the lake and staring at her own reflection in the water. The face that stared back at her was one comprised entirely of colorful blocks. “Amazing! Ryouta, Valt, look! I’m a Digimon made of Legos! How cool is that!” Chinatsu turned back to her two newfound friends. Though she had the body of a Toy Agumon now, she was still herself.
Well, looks like their trip wasn't all that bad. Ryouta smiled at Chinatsu. "How does it feels? Usually spirit evolving have some side effects, like the spirits telling you to do something. You can think it as an urge, so to say," Ryouta told her.
"I wonder what's the element...?" Valt mused outloud. "It felt like it have some relation with nostalgia, but for the spirit to be Toy Agumon, this is interesting, hmhm,..."
Regardless... "The next step probably would be getting to Digital World, huh... Also I think while being a spirit is fine and all, make sure to not evolve in wrong place, alright? I mean, if you want to walk from here back to the main road in that form, that's fine I think," Ryouta mused
"Yeah as long as you stopped the evolving when you're close to the main road I think everything will be fine," Valt agreed.
“It feels kinda… odd.” As a Toy Agumon, Chinatsu replied, moving her blocky limbs around to test that body’s limits. “Like, I’m not sure how I’m even able to move without muscles… or any organs, really. I mean, I don’t even have lungs or vocal cords, so how am I even talking to you right now? At the same time, though, it almost feels natural… like I’ve had this body for years. It’s really weird.” She mused, pacing around just to demonstrate how easily she could get herself to walk.
Ryouta then questioned what kind of element her Spirit was meant to represent. “Nostalgia, yeah. I think that’s what it said. It has to be it, right? Does nostalgia count as an element? I mean, if ‘heart’ can be an element, why not?” The MeTuber replied, flaunting her Captain Planet knowledge. As for her Spirit telling her to do stuff, she rubbed her blocky chin in thought. “Hmmm, yeah, I think it is telling me something… It’s saying it wants to play.”
Without warning, Chi ran up to Valt, tapping the little Veemon’s shoulder. “Tag, you’re it! Catch me if you can~” She playfully said, running off surprisingly fast for a sentient pile of Lego bricks. It looked like she was acting childish, completely ignoring their warning to not get back to the main road while in Digimon form. In other words, the duo would have to chase after her before she did anything stupid. Yup, just like a kid!
"Hmmm, interesting... well, don't think about the logic too much. When it comes to Digimon, logics usually just flew outta the window, you know?" Ryouta commented. "I mean, I don't even know how does Valt's anatomy works, and it just... works I guess. So either way, don't overthink it!"
"Nostalgia is probably an element, but who knows," Valt shrugged. "At times a spirits' element is a bit
...Still he was a bit too late in his warning. Chinatsu said that the spirit seem to want to play. With a "tag", the spirit user in Toy Agumon form dashed away, leaving the two boys bewildered.
...Oh dear, for better or worse is that Chinatsu let her spirit's instinct loose. Ryouta sort of can empathize of how it felt you're losing something that was part of you, and then you suddenly could get it back and... well, its just very exciting. However, failure to catch with her up would end up with them getting police on their ass he think. Oh God. Ryouta and Valt quickly sprints after Chinatsu.
"Ay, what should we do?" Valt asked.
"Well, I think as long as we can keep up with her, it'll be fine... I think her stamina would be limited too considering this is her first spirit evolution. Let's just satisfy her desire, then rein her back in if she's going too close to open area.."
Tag, the riskiest, most treacherous, most injury-inducing, most life-threatening playground game devised by the dastardly human mind. There was a reason it was banned in most schools throughout the world. It was just that intense! Surely it was a game tailored to Chinatsu’s true nature as an adventurer, although Toy Agumon’s inherently playful nature might have influenced her decision in part. Having gotten a head start, she had gained quite the distance from Ryoute and Valt, who were desperately chasing after her, trying to prevent her from running off somewhere where passerby humans could see her.
Still, Chi had to change her game plan, if she didn’t want them to catch her eventually. She stopped in front of a large tree, almost losing her balance as she hit the metaphorical brakes on herself. “Hmmm, can I climb this, I wonder…” Toy Agumon’s body had claws. Weird, tube-like claws, mind you, but maybe they were suitable for climbing. She tested her theory by latching onto the tree trunk and climbing up, until she reached a branch that was thick enough to support her weight without breaking. “Nyah, nyah! You’ll never reach me now!” She would taunt the boys from up on the tree once they had arrived.
The moment the two arrived to where Chinatsu is... she's... on top of a tree? It's curious how can Toy Agumon reached that height without actually falling apart... but that's probably not a pressing matter for the meantime. Someone said that they can't reach up that high? Really now? Ryouta looked at his wrist and pressed a button. Chinatsu may think that she can reach that high, but Ryouta got anti-grave device! The youth kicked the ground, which at first looked like it's a high jump... but when he's not even coming down, the secret would come out.
"Mind repeating that again? I think I can reach you just fine over here though~?" Ryouta taunted, then pokes Chinatsu's-- or the Toy Agumon's snout. Or at least, he's trying. "Tag, you're it~"
He quickly deactivated his device and landed on the ground. There's a bit of him that wondering how would Chinatsu act.
"By the way, devolving midway is a possibility, so you should not probably climb high like that again until you mastered the form enough!"
“W-wha… You can fly?!” The Spirit User’s lower jaw hung open in awe. A huge guy like him casually defying the law of gravity was nothing short of impressive. Whatever otherworldly device he had used to do this, Chinatsu wanted one too! So much was her bewilderment, she completely dropped her guard and allowed Ryouta to tag her. “W-wait, I can’t be it! Only other people are supposed to be it! You cheated! You’re a cheater!” The Toy Agumon whined in a rather childish manner, her drawn eyes turning angry.
“Now I’ll show you! OOOOH YEAH!!” After Ryouta landed back on the ground, the sentient Lego structure jumped off the tree branch in an attempt to elbow drop him. Unfortunately, her aim was off by a yard or two, so she crashed in front of him instead, breaking into a messy pile of bricks. “Crap! Uuuuh… it’s okay, I can fix this! I’m still alive… somehow.” The Toy Agumon’s detached head said, while her disembodied arms crawled on the ground, trying to find the torso in order to reattach themselves to it. “A little help would be appreciated, though. Hehehe…” She added with a light chuckle. All in all, she was being pretty carefree for someone whose body had literally been broken into pieces.
Cheated? Well "Valt tagged me first though, so I guess I'm now an it--," Ryouta joked. Though, he's rather amused by Chinatsu's outrage. Elbow dropping though... is not the greatest thing to do. Valt and Ryouta winced. The lady really never listened to any of them huh? See like she got a convenient filter when it comes to what to do and what she shouldn't do.
Thankfully, with both understanding how mutant Digimon worked, they immediately goes for her pieces. and tries to attach it... until dilemma.
"Uh, which one is left arm which one is left?" Ryouta asked. He REALLY don't want Chinatsu's arm to somehow attached BACKWARD or REVERSE after all.
"I think we need better color coding seriously," Valt commented, but not before attaching Chinatsu's head to the body. "So that in case something like this happened you'll know how to attach the body, or ask people to attach you. For example, on the left arm you put L then with arrow pointing at certain direction to say that thumb is facing that way. You know what I meant?" Valt commented.
"Oh, found your legs. Thankfully you're not... broken entirely to pieces... thank goodness..."
