Hmm I have run into quite the interesting comic online and decided to try my hand at this. It gave me a moment of thought about this show as i have not looked at it in a very kind light. I always thought it was meant for the same low level of people that watch spongebob squarepants, the ones that enjoy the stupidity of others because it makes them seem smarter. But after reading Bleedman's unfinished tale of the Grim family i decided that i should like writing my own. and after reading a few fanfictions i know how to write the characters in a way that will bring new light to their stories. You can for sure as hell expect billy to be out of character. Probably mandy too to a degree. I don't know how to write grims accent so bear with me when it comes to that. Another thing just so you all know now:
Mandy- Age nineteen
Billy- Age twenty
Grim- Age unknown
In my story grim is not a 'bag of bones' as our favorite little domineering child might call him. He is instead death personified in the form of a demon, it will better suit my plans and make a certain few things easier to explain. Mandy herself is a mystery that will be unraveled during the time that i am writing this story.
Disclaimer- I do not own The Grim Adventures Of Billy And Mandy nor do I ever wish to.
Mandy sat on the edge of her bed, angrily staring at her blood red finger nails. Her husband was supposed to be here by now. He would be punished for being tardy. She began immagining ways to make him scream and I do not mean in a pleasant manner when her husband finally appeared.
The Grim Reaper himself stood before the young beauty. He stared down into her once completely black orbs with a love that was complicated to say the least. True enough that both held a deep love for eachother, but the grounds on which they continued their relationship was a tedius path.
"You're late", she said as she crossed her arms under her well formed bosom. In the years between the time that she and Billy had enslaved the demon of death she had grown into a beautiful young woman. Her fashion sense had also changed. she stopped wearing that silly pink dress with the flower after she turned thirteen. She then tured towards a darker line of clothing. she currently wore a form fitting black dress with red trim. It stopped just above her breasts showing off her delicate shoulders and neck.
"I had a problem with me scythe", he explained holding up the accused weapon,"It's been behaving strangely for de past week." Mandy looked at him with a scrutinizing glare.
She held out her hand infront of her and the weapon jumped from Grim's hand to hers. She looked it over then swung it at Grim a few times. The demon did not move knowing that his lovely wife wouldn't hurt him... severely. He did notice that she had swung close enough to cut his clothing, as a few strips of black cloth fell to the floor.
"It's working fine, Grim", she said, tossing him the scythe, a growl hidden in her voice. Grim just looked at his scythe for a moment or so, inspecting it. While Mandy was adept in weilding the scythe and using it's powers she was not quite as intune to it like he was. He could still see that something was off and he needed to figure out what soon.
Grim sighed looking at one of his many watches. The one entitled Endsville cleary stated it was past midnight.
"Mandy, you should be in bed, you're still mortal you know, and mortals need rest", he looked at her the same look of deep devotion to her in his eyes. She glared defiantly at him.
"So what? Stop trying to change the subject", she crossed her arms once again. Grim let another sigh escape his lips as he walked over and sat down next to his wife wrapping an arm around her waist. Against her better judgement she leaned into him, feeling the soft material of his black robes. She may not have said it aloud but her heart truly was his.
Their marriage now was at a comfortable spot but was not always so. In the beginning it was hectic, to say the least. Through the binding law of the contract that Grim had made with Mandy and Billy nine years ago he was forced to marry one of the holders of said contract in order to stay in that reality without decaying as though a rotting corpse. Mandy had long since decided that in her way to power over the underworld that she would need Grim's help and had come to give respect to that knowledge. That respect slowly formed into something more as the years passed on and when this new clause in the contract stated that the reaper marry either her or Billy it just brought a good reason for her to claim Grim as her own.
Grim on the other hand was just grateful he didn't have to marry Billy although at the time he would have rather been sent back to the under world than marry either of them. There was something wrong with Billy, something really wrong. He always acted the idiot pushing himself into situations to make himself look like a moron, doing things people only thought someone with mental retardation so couldn't know any better would do.
But the boy did have his smart moments. Truth be told he was more knowledgeable than most people you would ever meet, but you wouldn't know it by looking. When Billy did have his moments it made Grims demonic heart ache for the boy as everytime there was a pain in Billy's eyes that could only be put there by fear and hate. He briefly wondered what was the trauma that caused the lad to act in such away but figured if it made Billy act like he didn't know the difference from shampoo and dog droppings then he'd probably be happier not knowing.
But speaking of the contract that reminded Grim why it was so important that he be home that night. It was their aniversary. As much of a show the future queen of the underworld put on about hating sentimental moments and presents from those you loved as it showed a weakness your enemies could exploit, she couldn't escape the simple fact that she liked it when Grim remembered to bring her something on her birthday or on their anniversary.
With his one free hand he reached into his cloak searching the folds for the gift he'd brought her from the underworld. he was sure it was something she'd like. He pulled the small blood red box from the folds of his reaper's clock ad placed it in her lap.
"Happy Anniversary, Mandy", He smiled. He normally wore his humanoid form around her, it was quite handsome if he said so himself. He was about six feet tall and had short unruly brown hair, he had fangs and claws, he was well built but not in a bulging manner like body builders, and if he wasn't wearing his robes then he was normally wearing a black shirt and white pants.
She gave him in return the closest thing to a smile she could manage, before oppening the box. Inside was a fang on a necklace.
"It came from de demon Malbolgia, some of his power should still be imbibed into it", Grim said a smile growing on his face his crimson eyes glinting slightly. Mandy looked at the fang for a moment before slipping the chain over her head. After pulling her long blonde hair through the chain she fingered the necklace. It had a dark aura about it that mixed with her own perplexingly powerful aura. How Mandy had come to get this air of dark power about her Grim couldn't be sure, but he was positive it had something to do with why Billy acted like he did.
As Mandy looked at her gift appreciatively Grim slowly leaned back and with her leaning on him for support it caused her to lean back as well. He did it ever so slowly so she wouldn't notice what he was doing and by the time she did she would have already woken up to find it the next day.
He smiled as one of her arms snaked it's way around his chest as she drooped into sleep. He himself didn't actually need sleep, but rested comfortably focusing on the dark aura she exuded. His eyes closed slowly, ignoring the second aura being emmited from her figuring it to be the energy of Malbolgia's fang not yet completely integrated into her own.
Oh how mistaken he was.
(( A few hours later))
Mandy sat bolt upright a wave of nausea hitting her like a ton of bricks. She placed a hand on her stomach and breathed deeply trying to force it to settle. For a moment or so it seemed to work, then it hit again harder than before. She raced for the restroom and placed her head over the toilet and breathed deeply through her mouth hoping that it didn't come to throwing up. She despised vommiting, it was a vile act above almost all else on her list, it was just something a future queen of the underworld didn't do. She was not like Billy stuffing himself to the point of breaking then depositing it in the toilet.
Another wave over came her and she gagged but forced it back down. She breathed deeply again trying to settle her body by giving it oxygen. It didn't work.
Finally her stomach had it's way and from her mouth the contents of her stomach came. There wasn't much more than stomach acid. It tasted foul and stung her throat but she could tell she wasn't quite done yet as she gagged again and more forced it's way up her throat and into the porcelain pool.
The commotion had woken Grim and he had come into the bathroom. He kneeled down behind her and rubbed her back tenderly.
"Are you alright?", he asked after a moment or so. She gave a curt nod and stood up going to the sink. She brushed her teeth a couple times and washed her mouth out to rid it of the horrid taste of stomach acid.
"I think I'm sick", she said bluntly," I'm gonna see a doctor in the morning." she said and then turned back to him," Let's go back to bed."
Grim nodded following her back to their bed. He lay down and much like before she nestled into him and he held her close. Once again Grim noticed the second energy field emitted from his wife and frowned. The necklace should have been completely absorbed by her energy by then. Then again Malbolgia was one of the higher class demons in hell so it may take a bit more time to be absorbed. He just sighed passing it off again as he was lured into unneeded sleep by hs lovely wife's energy.
(( The next morning at the doctors office))
Mandy sat in the doctors office, one leg crossed over the other, glaring at the wall with her strangely colored eyes, waiting for the doctor to call out that it was her turn. The other's in the office made a point of staying away form her in fear of their lives. They knew very well who this young woman was and who she was married to.
While in the mortal world Mandy had not sat idly by waiting for her death so the underworld would be hers to control. By no means, She had started practicing in this world for the take over that she really wanted. By age fourteen she had taken power over her neighborhood, by fifteen the entire city. Age fifteen was when she married Grim, She was exempt of the rule of Consumation until her eighteenth birthday so that did not play heavily on her mind. Soon after her sixteenth birthday was when things became strange. Her left eye turned a cool calm blue and her right one became a frosty silver color. Her puberty had brought more than just a change in her body. She now had a set of powers all her own. She could levitate things, focuse her energy into a spherical form, and from time to time she could even open a portal to another place or time. As she grew older her abilities grew in power. Now at age nineteen she could open portals to any realm she wanted, she could levitate items as large as sky scrapers, she could read minds to an extent, and her spherical energy orbs were now like small bombs she could use when she saw fit. She figured it probably came fom being married to the angel (or in this case demon) of death.
"Mandy Grim", The nurse called her name. She stood up turning her ever present glare on the nurse taking a small amount of pride in the fact that her mere look was enough to make the woman shudder. The nurse led her quickly to the doctor ad left her there as quickly as she could.
The doctor looked up from a folder with her ame on it. She saw the letcherous look in his gaze and reminded herself that when she was done that the man was going up in smoke if she had any say in the matter.
"Mrs. Grim, what a... Pleasant surprise. What may i do for you?", she could tell he was trying to keep his eyes from roaming her body. He was an older man probably in the forties, by the look of him it was easy to tell he hadn't been laid in a while so his mind tended to wander on dangerous ground.
"I'm here because i believe i am sick. Now if you'll stop undressing me with your eyes you can get to work on finding out what's wrong with me and i can leave", She said crossing her arms irritatedly. He gulped nodding.
"W-what are your symptoms?"
"Mood swings, vommiting normally at insane hours of the morn, strange cravings", She tapped her fingers on her arm impatiently. She had business to attend to.
"Hmm", He looked genuinely thoughtful," Sounds like... Hmm." He searched his cabinets for something when he found it he tossed it to her. She easily snatched it out of the air and glanced at it. Her eyes narrowed her glare looking much more formiddable.
"You must be joking", she wanted to crush the box.
"No, ma'am. And if it is negative than no harm done", he said though a little shakily under her glare. She opened her hand again to glare at the box she held in her hand. It was just big enough to hold a tooth brush, but the coloring and bold lettering on the front said otherwise. She was holding in her hand a pregnancy test.
She gave an annoyed sigh and glared at the doctor a moment before clutching the box again," Where is your restroom?" He pointed to just down the hall. She quickly walked down the hall and into the restroom. she stood infront of the large mirror and read the instructions on the box silently. She gave a snort of disgust before walking into a stall and following the instructions.
She came back out and placed the pregnancy test on the sink and washed her hands thoroughly. The fifteen minutes it took for her test results to show up were passing by aggrivatingly slow. She tried to amuse herself by making some of the toilet tissue take on the form of dancing skeletons.
Finallythe alotted amount of time had passed and she looked at the test. Her eyes narrowed once again in agitation.
"This is an interesting development", she said to her self quietly. She held the test before her in a scrutinizing glare. It said clearly in small blue letters 'PREGNANT'. "I wonder what Grim will think." She idly placed a hand over her flat stomach where new life was brewing. She threw the test away and left the doctors office without speaking and made her way home. As much as she tried to surpress it she felt a wamr sensation in her heart at the thought of a son or daughter growing inside her. Life was about to become very interesting.
