Hello everyone with this forum post I'd like to share a little bit of the origins of Sparky and I from a very long time ago, I hope you enjoy!

YOU ARE NOT PREPARED, CRINGE LEVEL: OMEGA
Sparky was in his room one night, looking out of his window up at the stars. He couldn't go to sleep that night because there was a huge party across the street that everyone was at. Everyone! Silver, Awkward, Floppy, even his cat was at that party! Sparky had no idea why he wasn't invited and this led to him feeling very angry. He tried looking at the stars because he thought that they were so beautiful that they'd calm him down. But they didn't. "If only there was someone that could cheer me up, that was there for me, that loved me," he said to himself.The next day was a Sunday, so Sparky decided to go down by the lake that was just down the street. He skipped rocks across the water and wished that someone-anyone-would appear and love him. "Sparky! Breakfast!" he heard his dad, Urban, yell. Sparky quickly ran over to his house and ate his breakfast, which was just some plain, dry cereal in a bowl. Not very appetizing.That night, Sparky went down to the lake again to skip another stone and wish what he wished last night. But before he could do so, he saw somebody was already there. Sparky thought of just walking away and coming back the next day until he saw that person's face. His face was simply gorgeous. Perfectly proportional and his eyes were such a lovely brown.Not to mention his monocle, which was very fancy. The person looked very sophisticated in it and Sparky knew that his wish had come true. "Hey there," he told him. The person looked at him and said, "Oh, hey," in a very calm and cool voice. "My name's Spar-Sparky, and I thought that maybe I would meet somebody new today" Sparky responded. "Well, here's that somebody you want to meet. I'm Jibblypop, but most people call me Jib," said Jib. "Hi Jib. Well, I guess I'll see you around," replied Sparky. ''Wow, Jib is really special. Maybe I'll invite him somewhere...'' Sparky said to himself.
The morning after, Sparky woke up with joy. He just met Jibblypop- or Jib as he likes to be called- and is certain that his wish of finding someone that loves him and he loves back has come true. "Okay, Sparky," he told himself, "Today's the big day. You are going to ask Jib if he wants to see Dawn of the Dead and you are going to have a great time. I hope...," "SPARKY! BREAKFAST!" he heard his mom, Eliana, yell. "Comin' mum," Sparky responded. He rushed downstairs and was greeted with a plate of eggs and 2 strips of bacon. "How's my 'lil son doing this morning?" Sparky's mom asked him. "Just fine, mum. You wouldn't mind if I were to go do something this afternoon, would you?" Sparky wanted to make sure he asked his parents because last time he tried sneaking out of the house, he got caught and was grounded for a week. "Sure sweetie, but be sure to be back by 7," his mom replied. "And do you mind if you woke up you sister Gymnastics for us?" Oh boy. Gymnastics is Sparky's 5 year old sister, and she always annoyed him. Everyone else thought she was just a pure, innocent little angel. But all she did was just tease Sparky and then start crying to make it look like he was being mean to her. What Sparky wanted to say back to Eliana was, "No way am I waking up Gymnastics! She'll hurt herself then throw a tantrum and say that I pushed her!" But Sparky was smart enough to know that saying that would get him grounded, which means no movies, which means no Jib. So instead, what he said was, "Alright, mum," and then did as he was told. "Wake up Gym, mom's making you," Sparky said as he barged into little sister's room. "Fine, but get outta my room now or you're toast," she said in her mean and sassy voice. Sparky didn't want to be framed by his little sister so again he did as he was told. 2:00 rolls by. "Bye, mum! Bye dad!" Sparky said as he exited his house. He went down by the lake in hopes that Jib was there and to his luck, he was. "Hey there, Jib," Sparky said to him. "Oh, hey. How you been?" Jib responded. "Just fine. You know, I was feeling bored so I was going to go see Dawn of the Dead, you wanna come with?" he asked him. "Sure," Jib replied. "And no worries, I'll pay for popcorn," They went to the movies happily and there was one scene that was especially scary to Sparky. Jib looked at him and saw he was scared. He grabbed Sparky's hand in a comforting way. "Don't worry, I'm here for you," Jib told him. "Thanks, Jib," Sparky responded. By the end of the movie both of them have fallen asleep in each others' arms.
After Sparky and Jib awoke from their slumber at the end of the movie, Sparky looked at the time. 5:30. He remembered his mom telling him to be back home by 7, so he decided to ask Jib if he wanted to go out for dinner. "Hey Jib, there's this great Italian restaurant just around the corner. Wanna go?" "Well, I'm supposed to be back by 7, but as long as we're back in time I'm down for anything," responded Jib. "I'm supposed to be home by that time too and they don't take very long to cook the food so we'll be fine," Sparky said. "Let's go!" Sparky and Jib held hands as they walked to Toni Pepperoni's Perfect Pizza. They sat down and the waiter that served them looked very tired. You can tell that he was just thinking "Give me my paycheck already" but he tried to act nice nonetheless. "Welcome to Toni Pepperoni's, my name is Halo and how may I help you two today?" he asked. "Especially you there," Halo said in a kind of flirty voice as he pointed at Jib. This made Sparky a little bit mad, but he kept his cool. "Well, I would like a bowl of bow tie pasta please," Sparky said as Halo wrote down his order. "And what about you? Do you have a name or can I call you mine?" Halo said to Jib and then did a wink. "Ooh, I'm flattered," said Jib. "I'd just like a plate of plain spaghetti and meatballs," he told Halo. Before the waiter left, he decided to flirt with Jib one more time. "Are you a camera? Because I smile every time I look at you!" Jib giggled. That was Sparky's final straw. He marched off into the bathroom and then started crying. "I'll never get Jib," he sobbed. "That waiter has him under his spell!" "Did somebody say... spell?" he heard a female voice say. Sparky turned around and saw a woman standing in the doorway. "What do you want with me?" he asked her. "I only want to help you with your problem out there," she replied. "My name's Professor Pig, but just call me Pig and I am a witch. Here, take this confidence potion I brewed. Drink it when you feel in doubt and let the magic happen!" Sparky wasn't too sure about this, but he couldn't let Halo have Jibblypop. "If this doesn't work, you and I are gonna have some problems," he said. He washed off his face in the bathroom and then sat back down with Jib. "Sorry about that, just had an emergency," Sparky told him. "It's fine Sparky, don't worry about it," he responded. Just then, Halo came out and brought them some complimentary breadsticks. "I think you're suffering from a lack of vitamin me," he told Jib and then did that same wink at him again. This was Sparky's chance. He drank that potion that Pig gave him and immediately felt the urge to stop this. "Hands off grabby, he's mine. Lay a finger on him and you're dead," Sparky told Halo. Jib felt a little embarrassed. "Sparky, what are you doing?" he whispered. "Ha! You're not good enough for him," Halo snapped. "Oh yeah? WATCH ME!" Sparky then grabbed Jib and kissed him right on the lips. Jib was redder than a fire engine. "Woah, calm down there bud. I was just kidding," Halo told Sparky. "Wait, you were?" Sparky asked. Just then, the potion wore off. Sparky and Jib were both REALLY embarrassed at what just happened. "I... I'm so sorry about that, Halo. I'm sorry, Jib. I don't know what happened," Sparky said. Jib and Sparky didn't really talk much after that- they just ate their food. They paid for the food and then held hands as Sparky walked Jib home. Once they got to Jibblypop's doorstep, Sparky wanted to apologize one more time. "Jib, I'm very sorry about what happened back there. I met this witch and I wasn't feeling confident and she offered me a po-" "Stop right there," Jib told Sparky."It's totally fine, Sparky. We all have our moments," "Yeah.. we all do...," Sparky said. They both got closer and closer to each other. They tilted their heads and closed their eyes. Their lips were about to meet and- "WHAT'S GOING ON OUT HERE, JIBBLES!?!?" Jib's dad, ProfBanana, said. "D-dad! It's not what it looks like!" That was a lie. It was totally what it looked like. Prof managed to calm himself down. He leaned in close to Sparky. "Listen here buster, if you EVER try to do something to my son again, you will NOT be welcome to this household and I will NEVER let Jib out again. Do you understand?" he said. Sparky was a little bit scared. "Yes sir," he told him. "Bye Jib!" "Bye Sparks!"
Sparky was at his little sister's gymnastics practice. He tried to focus on his sister Gym, but he just couldn't stop thinking about Jib or what happened yesterday. He was with his dad, Urban, and he had his mind completely focused on Jibblypop until he said, "Son, your birthday is coming up and I know you really wanted a party so this year we're gonna be throwing you one! How does that sound?" Sparky was shocked. For some reason, his parents have never thrown him a birthday party so this made him extremely excited. "Really? Thank you thank you!" he exclaimed. Urban smiled. "Just be sure to wear something fancy," he said. Now, Sparky was starting to feel less excited and a bit more worried because he had absolutely nothing fancy. "But Dad, I-" just before he could finish, his sister came running out because it was time to go home and Urban was focused on her now. "Hey Sparky," Jib said. They were at the lake now like they planned. "Jib, I wanna ask you something," he told him. Jib nodded. "My birthday is just around the corner and my dad says to wear something fancy for my party. Problem is- I have absolutely nothing formal whatsoever. So I think that if we pull our money together, we'd be able to by me a tux. You in?" Jib smiled. "Of course, Sparky. Anything for you," he replied. That afternoon, Jib and Sparky were at the mall hunting for a tux. They finally found a store called "Friar Tux Shop" and went in. Sparky found a black and white tux and was very happy with it without even looking at the price tag. "Excuse me, sir," Jib told the store clerk. "But my friend and I would like to buy this tuxedo," They looked at his nametag. Apparently his name was Clint Eastwood. "Hm," Clint said. "Money please," Sparky and Jib reached into their pockets to find... nothing. Both of them completely forgot all of their money. "Uhh, can we sing you a song?" Jib asked. Clint had an angry look on his face. "NO MONEY, NO SERVICE!" he screamed. Jib and Sparky shared a sad look on their face as they walked out, until Jib had a brilliant idea. "Hey Sparky, how about this?" he asked. Then he bent over and whispered something into Sparky's ear. Both of them nodded in agreement and got down to business. First, Sparky grabbed the backpack of a little girl without her looking. He felt bad about it but what he was about to do was even worse. Next, he unzipped the backpack and put in on his back then walked to a corner. In that corner was Jib with the same black and white tux they couldn't afford. After that, Jib stuffed the tux into the backpack while nobody was looking. He zipped up the pack and made their way out of the door with absolutely nobody knowing and lived happily ever after. Pssh, if only it were that easy. Apparently, an alarm went off because technology these days can tell whether an item has been scanned or not and can set off an alarm when an item that has not been scanned makes it past store doors. "Uh-oh..." Jib said. Soon, they were both surrounded by mall cops on segways. The mall cops then made a pathway for one specific female mall cop. "Stop! My name is DFG and you two have been caught shoplifting! You are under arrest!" she screamed. "My parents are SO gonna kill me..." said Sparky. DFG the Mall Cop arrested Sparky and Jib and put them into a little cell with a big sign on it that said "Mall Jail" on it. "Can we at least get our one phone call?" asked Jib. DFG rolled her eyes. "Fine, you get one phone call. And if I were you, I wouldn't waste it on something stupid," she told them. Unfortunately, that's exactly what Jib did. He decided to call his mom named Doggette. ”Hey, mom? Just calling to say I love you," he said. Sparky gave Jib a look like he just swallowed an olive. "What have you done...," he said. There was a little desk and chair across from where the jail cell was which was where DFG sat. She put the keys on a coat rack right next to her. "You boys have 30 minutes in there," she said while flipping through a segway magazine. Sparky looked at his watch. It was 5:30. Eliana and Doggette both wanted their sons to be home by 7, so they got some time. "So uh, what do we do exactly?" Sparky asked out of boredom. DFG looked up from her magazine. "Well, there isn't much to do," she replied. "I guess you can chat with your fellow cellmates," To the left of Sparky and Jib there was a girl with shades and a t-shirt that said "Thug Train" on it. "Hey, what ya in for?" Jib said. "Apparently I looked so much like a thug that people's children starting screaming in fear," she said while rolling her eyes. "The name's Vanessa but I'm known on the streets as the Thug Train. I'm in for about an hour. So, what are you two in for?" "Long story short, we tried shoplifting and it went horribly wrong," Sparky told her. "Oh, I remember when I shoplifted for the first time. Good times...," she said. 15 minutes went by and so did 4 games of Poker with Vanessa. All 3 of them grew extremely bored until Jib gave a suggestion. "I can't take this anymore. Vanessa, know any secret ways out?" he asked. She smiled. "I like your style," she told Jib. "And yes, I've broken out of this cell lots of times. I can get us out easily. Okay, first..." All of them got into a huddle and started discussing how to get out. Meanwhile, DFG was eating a pack of pink donuts with purple and yellow sprinkles, totally oblivious to what was going on. "Let's go!" Vanessa exclaimed. She pulled a bobby pin out of her hair and started picking the lock while Jib and Sparky were making sure DFG saw nothing. She glanced up from her donut and Vanessa quickly stopped picking it and acted like they were just talking. The mall cop turned her chair around and kept munching on her donut and then Vanessa started picking at the lock again. Then, after many attempts, she finally got the cell door open. "Success!" she exclaimed in a whisper-voice. They all tip-toed out of the cell and then out of the room. They thought they were completely safe, until they got to the doors of the mall. "Halt!" a male mall cop said. "GO GO GO!" Vanessa yelled at the top of her lungs. Jib, Sparky, and Vanessa began running out the mall and aimed for the Toys R Us across the street. Soon, a bunch of mall cops started to chase them! Jib and Sparky kept running until they realized that Vanessa disappeared. "Where did she..." "Guys! Down here!" they heard a voice whisper. Jib looked to the left and saw Vanessa up against the wall of a building next to the mall and followed her down and brought Sparky with him. "Take these," she told them. Vanessa then started handing out toy lightsabers to Sparky and Jib. "And how are these gonna help us exactly?" Sparky asked. "It's simple. All these mall cops wanna do is roleplay," she replied. "Just pretend that you're a jedi and they'll pretend with you for a while then they'll just let you go. Those guns they're holding aren't even real," she laughed. All 3 of them came out of their hiding spot and pointed their lightsabers at the angry mall cops with DFG on her segway in the front of them all. "So it's a battle you want, aye?" she asked. "Well it's a battle you're gonna get!" All the mall cops pulled out lightsabers and started swinging them at each other while DFG was just kinda riding her segway in circles. 5 minutes later, they let them go. "Well, I learned nothing," Jib said while they all walked together. "Oh, I gotta go now guys," Vanessa told them. "I gotta meet up with my gang," "Bye, Thug Train," Jib and Sparky said at the same time. "Y'know, I was so bored in that cell I was about to kiss you," Sparky admit. "Really? Well, I wouldn't mind if you do right now..." Jib responded. Sparky's face turned red. He looked around to make sure nobody was watching and then kissed Jib on the cheek. "Aw," Jib said. "I gotta go home, too. My mom has fleas and I gotta give her a bath," Sparky had a confused look on his face. "Wait, so your mom is a dog and your dad is a squid-octopus-thing?" he asked. "Yeah," Sparky giggled a bit. "See you tomorrow, Jib," "See you tomorrow...
"Jib I'm telling you, you don't have to get me anything!" Sparky exclaimed. Him and Jib were outside of Sparky's house talking about his birthday. "I'm sure you'd do the same to me!" Jib said. They had been arguing about whether or not Jib should give Sparky a present or not. Jib really wanted to, but Sparky argued that it was fine if he didn't. He's been trying so hard that at this point he decided to just give up. "Fine, you can give me one if you want to," Sparky finally said. "Thank you!" Jib squealed. "But I don't get it. Why wouldn't you want me to get you a present on your birthday?" Sparky didn't really know how to respond to that. "Well... It's just that we haven't known each other for very long and...," "Uh, hello? We broke out of jail together... kinda.... we went to the movies together, and you even kissed me at dinner!" Jib yelled. Sparky thought that what Jib said is a very good point. "Fine..." he said. Jib giggled a bit. "Aw, you're cute when you're mad!" Sparky remembered his dad telling him to wear something fancy. You would think after going to the mall for so long with Jib that they would've picked up something, but nope. Sparky still had nothing fancy whatsoever. "DAD!" he screamed. "What is it, son?" Urban asked as he walked into Sparky's room. "I have absolutely nothing fancy in this room! Can't I just wear something casual?" he asked. Urban sighed. "HONEY! CHANGE THE DRESS CODE ON THE INVITATIONS TO CASUAL!" he exclaim to Eliana. "Thanks, Dad!" Sparky told him as he ran out of his room to the pond. "Jib!" Sparky called. Jib turned around grinned as he saw Sparky run up to him with his arms open ready for a hug. They hugged amorously and then Sparky handed an invitation to Jib. "Feel free to open it now," he said to him. Jib opened it carefully and pulled out a violet card with black printed ink on it that said "You're Invited!" on it in cursive. Below it gave the time, date and location of where the party would be held. "Thank you so much, Sparks. Of course I'll come!" Jib said. They hugged again and both started blushing. "Unfortunately, the day of the party you have to meet my annoying sister Gymnastics," Sparky told Jib. Jib had a confused look on his face. "What kind of name is 'Gymnastics?'" he asked. "Well, she loves the sport gymnastics so much that she brainwashed my parents into getting her named legally changed to Gymnastics," he said. "Her name used to be Roaring," Jib's face looked even more confused, like that look you get when you realize you have no idea what you're looking at on your math paper. "Why are the names of the people in this town so weird? In fact, why are the people in this town so weird? My mom isn't even human, she's a DOG!" Sparky never really thought about that before. "Anyway, that's beside the point," he said. "Gymnastics HATES me! Everyone loves her and she pretends to love everyone, but underneath that unreasonably large pink bow is a demon! AND SHE'S ONLY 5 YEARS OLD!" he screeched. Jib nodded his head. "I used to have a 'friend' like that in first grade. God, she was mean," he told Sparky. Just then, the front door to Sparky's house swung and out came Gymnastics. "Heh, heh, heh," she laughed. "Big Brother, if you think that you and your boyfriend can stop me from doing what I plan to do at the party, you'd be a fool!" Sparky folded his hand into a fist and his face started turning red. "Calm down Sparky, I got this," Jib whispered to him. He marched up to Gymnastics in a very angry way. "Listen here punk, I dare you to try to get past me! TRY ME!" he shrieked. Immediately, she dropkicked Jib into the ground. "Ugh.. you win," he admitted. "Gym, what is it you want to do to me at the party?" Sparky asked while rubbing Jib's back. "Tell me before I tell mom what you did to Jib," Gym giggled. "Hah! She'll never believe you two. Everyone absolutely ADORES me!" she responded. "Mom would only ground you and call me a good girl," she snorted and then made her way back into the house. "We have to find out what she's gonna do," Sparky said. "But how?"
Sparky woke up early the next day with excitement. "Okay Sparky, today's the big day," he told himself. "You've invited all your friends and absolutely no sign of something going wrong!"
He sprung out of bed and ran into the dining room. "Happy birthday, sweetie!" his mother, Eliana, exclaimed while pushing a plate of pancakes with smiley faces made out of blueberries in front of where he usually sits. "Thanks mom!" he said while digging into his breakfast. Next to him was his little sister Gym who seemed to be acting a lot nicer to Sparky. She wasn't giving him the stink-eye like she usually did when nobody was looking. Instead, she just smiled politely yet slightly creepily. That's when Sparky remembered that today wasn't actually going to be free of things going wrong. He remembered yesterday when Gym warned Jib and Sparky about what she was gonna do to him at the party. Sparky's bright and happy smile turned into that face you make when you realize someone's cheating off of your test.
"You little-" Sparky whispered to Gym until his dad, Urban, walked into the room and asked him a question. "So son, today's the big day," he told him. "How do you feel?" Sparky shrugged. "Nervous yet excited I guess," he said. ”Well, the nervous part is gonna go away soon," Urban told him. Sparky sighed. "I hope so...," he whispered quietly to himself. It was 4:30 pm, the time of the party. Like Sparky hoped, Jib was the first one to arrive. However, there was someone standing beside him. "Hey Jib! Who is this?" he asked. "Oh, this is just my friend Maxy. You don't mind if I invited him, do you?" Jib asked Sparky. Sparky wasn't too sure about this, but he didn't want to be rude. "I don't mind at all!" he said to Jib. Jib grinned happily. "Great! Thanks," he said. Maxy and Jib entered Sparky's house together. He began to feel an emotion similar to the one he felt when Halo was hitting on Jib. Only this time, it was more jealousy than anger. Sparky tried to ignore it by drinking some punch and looking out the window but he just couldn't stop thinking about if Jib had fallen for Maxy. Just then, the doorbell rang and Sparky went to go answer it. "Vanessa! How you been?" he asked Vanessa at the door. "Yo, I brought my gang with me so I hope that's cool" she said as she walked into the house with a gang which she called "The Thug Trains," Sparky felt even more jealous because nobody was paying attention to him even though it was his birthday. He glanced over to the stairs where he saw Maxy talking to Jib. He clenched his fist and his face turned red, but he managed to calm himself. Later, more guests arrived and Sparky greeted all of them. The guests were Silver, Awkward, Soccer and Futbol. Sparky still wanted some time alone so he went back to where he was before. Just then, he saw something that he couldn't believe. Maxy was embracing Jib's face! At that point, Sparky had given up on calming down. Sparky marched on over to Maxy and Jib in a very irritated way. "LISTEN HERE, 'MAXO' OR WHATEVER YOUR NAME IS!" he yelled. "YOU CAN TALK TO HIM, YOU CAN LOOK AT HIM, BUT YOU MAY NOT DO WHAT YOU JUST DID!" Sparky's face was redder than a tomato and a fire engine combined. He heard two girls laughing above him and looked up to see Gym and the witch named Pig who he met a couple nights ago on the top of the staircase. Sparky was quite surprised. How did Pig find his address? Are they best friends now or something? His mind was so full of questions that he didn't even think about the huge bucket in their hands. "Happy birthday, Sparky!" Pig yelled. "And don't worry, I didn't put any spells in this!" Together, Pig and Gym poured a bucket of freezing water onto Sparky! Everyone in the room laughed. EVERYONE! Sparky felt extremely embarrassed and began to sob. Not to mention the fact that the water was colder than anything he'd ever touched, seen, or knew about. It was much colder than the water that you'd use for the Ice Bucket Challenge and Sparky would know because he's done it before. Even in freezing water, Sparky managed to run slowly out of the door and by the pond that was near his house. Jib felt really bad for Sparky and wanted to tell everyone to stop laughing, but he was afraid everyone would start laughing at him instead. "Sparky, wait!" he called as Sparky ran out. Jib didn't know what to do so he just ran out to chase after Sparky. "I'm sorry, Sparky!" he yelled. "I'm sorry..."
