    Lovebird's Adventures

    Valentine's is here and that means one thing: Lovebird is back. Our lovely companion comes to visit us this time of year to help spread joy and love through our community. But what does Lovebird do when they're not here? That's up to you to try and figure out.

    Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to write a short story detailing an event in the life of the lovely Lovebird. This event can be anything, so long as doesn't violate any of Lake Valor's global forum rules (which can be found here if you want a refresher). You could write about Lovebird delivering a Valentine's card, trying to take a day off work, running the mafia, or whatever you want.

    Prizes:
    First Place: 150 PP
    Consolation Prize: 50 PP​

    Deadline: Tuesday, February 18th at 11pm EST

    Question:
    1. You mentioned it was about Lovebird's life away from the Lake, but would it be okay to write about Lovebird's DOES do on Valentine's Day (sort of)?
    2. How long should the submission be?

    1. I suppose that would be fine as well.
    2. I'm not putting any limitations on length, so it can be as long or short as you want to write it.

    All right! I'm finally done.
    As the sun rose over the land, and morning dawned once again, the pink glow of Lake Valor's Valentine decorations could be seen from a mile away. Or, probably more, as a sleepy Lovebird soon caught sight of the hue from her nest. Speaking of the Cupid Owl, the moment realization of what it meant, she quickly shook herself awake, straightening her feathers. Today was the big day! She had to be ready. Grabbing her giant bag of letters with her beak, she bent her legs, leaped up, and took to the sky, careful not to let a single of the heart-shaped envelopes fall.
    Wind swept through her naturally magenta feathers as she soared towards the large blue spot in the distance, a pink glow surrounding it. An overpowering smell of roses came from all around. The giant date board, now a pale bubblegum color, blared out "FEBRAURY 14" in cursive caps lock. Bushes of flowers surrounded every item in a 20-mile radius. A Fletchling peeked out their window, sniffed one, and sneezed so hard they fell out the house. Before they could quite hit the ground, though, they found themselves caught in a long line of cotton-candy colored fairy lights.
    From a bird's-eye view, she could see many of the other citizens of the Lake milling about. A shiny Magikarp leaped up high into the air, holding a long thread of what appeared to be pink bunting in his mouth. When happy with the result, he quickly Splashed back into the lake, revealing that as a matter of fact, he had just wrapped pink toilet paper around someone else's house. The owner of the house quickly burst out shortly afterwards, screaming and shaking their fist while he swam away.
    Ah, Valentine's Day. How lovely.
    She slowed her flight, flapping once or twice to keep some air, and descended into a graceful landing on a tall rock near the shore. Several citizens took note of her and rushed over, surprised expressions on all their faces - but generally looking happy to see her.
    "Lovebird! You're back?" gasped one, waving up to her.
    "Of course I am! Isn't it Valentine's Day?" she chirped in response. "I've got quite the amount of letters from you all this year!"
    Lake Valor's citizens all exchanged a look, but quickly shrugged it off as Lovebird tapped one on on the shoulder. "And here's one for you!"
    Within the next few minutes, the lakeshore turned into a bustling crowd as the pink Decidueye handed out letter after letter. Most of them replied with thank you's and joyful squealing, a few replying with confusion and bashfulness, and one simply nodding an apathetic thank you. Still, they were probably happy. At least Lovebird liked to think so.
    Within a few hours, nearly each and every letter had found its way to its recipient, and the crowd began to disperse. Soon, the Lake had become as quiet as it had been before, with Lovebird standing at the center of the square, a single letter in her wing. No matter how hard she checked, it still lacked a name. But how could this be? Everyone had got a Valentine delivered to them! Except...
    Realization struck. With a determined look in her eye, she swooped up into the air one last time, heart-shaped envelope clenched tightly in her wing.
    She found him hiding in a sleazy alleyway, completely alone. Well, aside from the ant by his left foot, which quickly took off when Lovebird drew near. This was likely the first time she had ever seen the jester so... quiet. Ever since the day he had broken into her house, that was.
    "Trickster?"
    "W455UP." He didn't seem to bothered by his own lack of energy, surprisingly enough.
    "You, uh... have a Valentine."
    He raised a brow - if he had brows, that was - for a moment before shrugging it off. "C00L, T4K3 1T 50M3WH3R3 3L53. 1 D0N'T W4NT 1T."
    "Um, what?"
    "V4L3NT1N3'5 D4Y 1S B0R1NG." Seeing Lovebird didn't quite respond, Trickster added a second line. "4ND L0V3 15 B0R1NG."
    "Hooh! Now now!" the Valentine Courier chirruped. "Love doesn't always mean romantic love. Love can be platonic love! Familial love! Any and all types of love! It's-"
    "4LL R1GHT, 4LL R1GHT." The jester stopped her before she could say anything more. "1 G3T 1T, Y0U R34LLY L1K3 TH15 H0L1D4Y. ST1LL L4M3."
    It was only then that Lovebird took a moment to look around them. The bustle of the town could be heard, but in the dark alleyway, it was only Trickster. Trickster and herself. It took her a long moment to know what to say.
    "Well, if you ever need me, I'll be around. We'll all be around - all of us at the Lake! And you can come hang out with us, and we can have candy, or just talk, join my mafia..." As she said this, she extended the wing with the Valentine card in it.
    Although the jester seemed unwilling or apathetic at first, about halfway through the first sentence, he'd stood up and followed her. The two of them left the alleyway, walking towards the lake shore. Someone yelled "I SHIP IT" in the distance before promptly being hit over the head with a newspaper.
    Once they'd reached the shore, several other citizens of the Lake having come along, Lovebird turned to the jester once again. "We're all here to celebrate. So won't you come celebrate with us?"
    She extended a wing, which he reached out to take. But just before he did, there was a sudden pause. And a light snort.
    "Is something wro-"
    Trickster broke out into a wide grin. "H4H4 G3T F00L3D L0L." He then sprung away, ripping a sheet of paper off the giant date board... revealing that it was, in fact, April 1. All the Valentines promptly exploded into pepper, making the Fletchling from earlier sneeze themself out of the wires. Then Trickster landed in the arms or equivalent appendages of the people and crowdsurfed his way to victory, leaving a highly confused Lovebird standing on the lakeshore.

    lovebirb is tricked into going back to the lake thinking it's valentine's day but it was actually ya boi trickster

    "Today I sleep. Tomorrow some weep.
    For joy, or sorrow.
    I won't know until tomorrow.

    I rest my wings, until someone pings.
    I am summoned fast, my breaks do not last.
    Today I sleep. Tomorrow I cheep.

    I hunger for affection, I feast on love.
    I wait for more requests to fall on me, from above.
    My body is weak, I wait for the day of love.
    Sometimes I peek, at the calendar I have created.

    Without these cards to line my nest, I grow cold, no jest.
    The day of Valentines, I feel the best.
    The day afterwards, feathers fall from my chest.

    I grow meek, my time is done.
    Until next time, please send your funds."

    Valentine's day had arrived at Lake Valor and that meant one thing for a very special Pokémon. Lovebird was always ready for this time of year as they were open to helping the residents of Lake Valor. They would take sweet hearts to show a sweetheart that they were loved, but sometimes it was as simple as a card. The item mattered not to Lovebird, but the thoughts that were hopefully behind all the gifts they were delivering mattered the most to them. They wanted everyone to be able to e happy and give gifts out of the kindness of their hearts.

    (Finished this at 10:31 and wanted it to be short since I thought a sweet intro story about Lovebird would be cool)
