Special Prologue Chapter:
Hi, there. My name is Leslie, and I come from a family of witches, apparently. It kinda surprised me when I found that out.
Oh, but that's not what's important. No, what matters right now is that I'm a Glaceon. Now, I know you probably expect a Glaceon to be a cute little animal that can only say its own name, but through my magical studies I've learned of worlds where the peoples of my world are mere animals that coexist with something called "humans", which are basically like versions of us in this world, only without special abilities, and other worlds where we exist only as fictional characters. I'm only mentioning this so it's clear I'm what you might call "humanoid", as are all
"Pokémon" I think was the term.
In fact, aside from names and abilities, the only other thing you might correctly know about my world is some location names. Those seem to be universal. I'm from, and currently in, the Sinnoh region, which is in roughly the same location as part of something called "Japan" in most worlds I learned of (seriously, there was a ton of detail on these places, so either they've been studied for decades or someone had a hell of an imagination), in case that's important. It should at least establish what we kinda look like and how we talk and act, though I doubt everything's 100% the same.
Now, there's more to my story than what you're about to read, but I'll save all that for another time. For now, I want to tell the abridged version of how I met my girlfriend, and then the story of how she became my girlfriend.
Now, our story begins when I was still just an Eevee. I was friends with a nice Dialga boy my age named Aohagane (we're convinced his parents hated him). We met in 4th grade, when he protected me from some bullies. We began talking afterward, and we became friends quickly enough because we had similar interests. The truth is, I would probably have started dating him in high school, except there was just one problem he had that I couldn't get past.
See, his problem was that he's a guy. Those bullies back in 4th grade? They were picking on me because I knew from a young age that I liked other girls. I was often teased that if I kept on liking girls, I'd grow up to become a "Lesbeon." It was actually a rather clever pun, and I've chosen to use it to describe myself since then, since it worked with my name for a number of jokes, like going by the nickname "Les". Anyway, I once mentioned to Ao-kun that if he were a girl, I'd probably be with him forever. He chuckled and told me he sometimes wondered what it'd be like as a girl when he was younger, and even once wished on a star to wake up a girl. In the end, though, he figured he wouldn't be lucky enough to be cute as a girl, so that was the end of it.
As of right now, we're both in college together, and I found out I was a witch about half a year ago. My sisters and I were looking for stuff in the attic, and we eventually found the family magic stuff. Grandma always wanted us to learn it, but mom was against it and hid it all from us until then. Grandma helped train us, but made us swear not to tell anyone, with the only exception being someone we knew we could trust completely. I had decided to tell Ao-kun, since we've never had any real secrets from each other. He understandably didn't believe me until I proved it, since we prank each other sometimes, but once he was sure, he promised never to tell.
A couple of days ago, I was doing some private magic studying when I found an interesting spell I wanted to try, and I wanted Ao-kun there for it. I grabbed what I needed, put it in a bag, and hurried to where he was, him having just gotten done playing Battle Ball, a sport played between three teams, Team Adamant, Team Lustrous, and Team Griseous. Each team gets a goal keeper, a ball runner, and a staff wielder. Ao-kun was the Adamant Staff holder today, and was carrying his staff when I found him, still in his game uniform.
Ao-kun saw me coming and said "Oh, hey, Leslie. I wasn't expecting to see you until later. What's up?"
"Not much, but
could you come with me somewhere private? I have something I want to try with you."
"Hmm? Oh, sure. My dorm room's just over there. Aren't we lucky I don't have a roommate?"
We arrived at Ao-kun's room in just a minute or two and locked the door behind us. He calmly moved to the middle of the room with me and asked "So? What's up?"
I was doing some studying and I found a spell. Now, I may have given the impression I just want you to watch, but the truth is that I want to try it on you. And you don't have to worry. It's easily reversible."
On the one hand, the last time I let you try a spell on me, I had green hair for a week. On the other hand, I can never say no to you. You're my best friend."
"Yay! Then there's no sense in dragging this out, so away we go!"
Before Ao-kun could have any idea what I was gonna do, I opened my bag and changed into my witch outfit, which conveniently doubles as cold weather clothing, though it's September, so I couldn't wear it outside without being suspicious. I started making a small chant in an ancient language used only for magic. I don't know exactly what the words mean, but I can read and speak it correctly to avoid mishaps, and the spell book said it was a spell to bring out either a person's ideal self or their true self. It wasn't 100% clear which. Just chant the spell and the person will either change to become the kind of person they've always wished they could be or to become who they were meant to be, but for whatever reason simply aren't.
"Curatio! Teneritas, sectio, salus... coctura!"
Ao-kun waited patiently as I chanted, then gasped and started clutching his chest, panting as a cold mist formed around him, the windows fogging over so no one could see inside the room. He started groaning as his body began to change, and what I saw will remain in my mind forever. His clothes began to be moved by his altering body, changing a bit to fit better as he shrunk a couple of inches, going from being taller than me to being about my height. His waist slimmed considerably, and his muscles smoothed out to form a sleek, supple body, his face thinning and becoming more feminine as his hair began to grow, a band forming around it to make a thin ponytail.
His shorts, socks, and shoes morphed around him, becoming a cute waist accessory with a garter belt on under it, connected to a cute pair of stockings worn under a pair of boots, and something came out from behind her, looking like a section of a skirt. Meanwhile, his t-shirt changed drastically as the sleeves detached themselves and moved a few inches below his shoulder before expanding into a pair of long, decorative gloves, his shirt becoming a tight tank top which was pushed up by his new breasts to reveal them a bit, snug in a cute bra.
Ao-kun's groans soon turned to moans in a much cuter voice as he finally became she, and Ao-kun became Aoko-chan. The mist thinned around her as I looked in surprise, before picking her up into a hug, smiling as she gave me a shy and very confused blushing look.
"Ao-kun, you look amazing! I know I said it's reversible but
would you consider staying like this? As you are now, you're pretty much my ideal girlfriend!"
She stared back in shock, then began looking down at her new body, stunned.
"L-L-Leslie? D-did you mean to turn me into a girl?"
"No, I didn't. I was just using a spell meant to make someone either their ideal self or true self. The book wasn't clear which. So
I guess you never truly got past that wanting to be a girl thing, Ao-kun? Or no
would 'Aoko' be better? Because I like that. My snuggly bff Aoko-chan~<3!"
. I wanted this?" She gave an intense blush. "I-I-I suppose I did. B-b-b-because
th-the truth is
when I saved you from those bullies years ago? I-I did it because I liked you. I always
kinda have. I was hoping you'd like me back for saving you, but
then I found out why they were teasing you. I felt crushed. I'd sometimes wished I could be a girl before I met you, but knowing I could never be who you would want was too painful, so I never said anything and decided to just be your friend. B-but now
now we can really date? I-it may take some getting used to, but
I-I think I'm ok with this."
"YAY<3!" I quickly hugged her tight. "My Aoko-chan forever~!"
yeah, that's kinda how I got my awesome girlfriend. Amazing, huh? Now, if you'll excuse me, we have a date today. I'm finally taking her shopping for some adorable clothes, and then we're gonna see a movie we can make out in before having dinner. We'd have done all this sooner, but I needed to find a spell that would make the world act as though Aoko had always been a girl, meaning records and photos and stuff had to be changed. After that, though, was getting my parents' permission to stop staying at home and go through official channels to become Aoko's roommate. That all ate up a few days, so we're way behind on our making out, meaning I'm just gonna stop here and go have some fun.
Bye for now. Maybe I'll have more stories for you some other time.
