Shermy's tired of being a personalitiless nobody, and he'll do anything to change the situation, - even using some dangerous (well, sort of...) interdimensional technology! A melodrama-free, romance-free, nonviolent, good ol' Peanuts fan fic that is VERY goofy.

"Hey, Charlie Brown," Lucy said.
"Did you hear that they're going to be changing the Christmas play this year?" Lucy shoved her thumb into her mouth as she waited for Charlie Brown's reply.
"Apparently," Lucy continued. "They want to incorporate verses from other gospels, or something like that...which is nice and all, but I'd have to memorize a whole new deal than from previous years...you know?"
"Why do you say the same thing over an' over, Charlie Brown?"
"Uhh...well, it's just..."
"Oh, Charlie Brown! You're such a loser! Why don't you bother replying properly to a girl every once in a while?" said Lucy angrily.
Charlie Brown stared.
"What? What? What's your problem with the way I act, Charlie Brown?"
"Nothing, it's just...you're acting...normally!"
"Huh? Wh...? How was I...acting before...?" she said, seeming vaguely disoriented. Then she saw the blanket in her hand. "Wait...a..." She scratched her head.
"WHOOPS - EE - DOO!" Shermy jumped out of a bush nearby and slammed the carboard box over Lucy. "Can't be changing back to your normal personality! Nope! That just won't do!"
"Shermy!" Charlie Brown said angrily.
"Now, let's see...how do I renew the personality? What did Calvin's manual say? ...You twist the arrow away from both options and tap the button twice, right? Yeah, I think that's it."
"SHERMY!" Charlie Brown yelled. Shermy didn't pay any attention to him.
"There!" he said, lifting the box up. "Good as new!"
"Whuuhgg..." said Lucy. "What happened? What was I talking about before?"
"The Christmas play!" Shermy said happily, eager to supply Linus-fuel to Lucy's mind.
"Oh, yeah, the Christmas play! You know, now I remember...I think they're changing it to a different version of the Bible...I wonder why they make all these different versions."
Charlie Brown sighed. "I don't know Li...Lu...whoever..." He sighed, then noticed Shermy running off. "Wait a second, Lucy..." He ran after Shermy.
"Where are you going now, Shermy?" said Charlie Brown, sounding grouchy.
"Oh, well, know that I've made sure Linus' personality stays in Lucy, I'm going to make sure Luny's personality stays in Lis...wait..."
"Shermy, why are you doing this?"
"Hm? What do you mean? I already told you, I want a personality!"
"You can't just manipulate people to get what you want!" Charlie Brown said angrily.
"Uh...yeah I can," said Shermy. "I mean, why not?"
"SHERMY! You just can't do this!"
"Ah, well, who's going to stop me? I figure we should all just look out for our own interests, fulfill our own dreams and aspirations...and anyway, if I seem selfish to you, it's not my fault...it's probably just a random consequence of the way the personalitizing energy happens to affect me!" Shermy smiled.
"Good grief, Shermy! You can't possibly believe you're right about all this!" Charlie Brown said.
Shermy shrugged. "Right, wrong...they're all the same to me, Charlie Brown!" He ran all the faster, leaving Charlie Brown in the dust.
Charlie Brown sighed heavily. "I'll never be able to stop him...I need help...too bad everyone hates me." He sighed heavily. Again.
"I need help," said Charlie Brown again. "I really need help. I can't do this on my own..."
It was at that moment that Charlie Brown felt as though he received guidence from heaven...
Suddenly, he remembered...What was that Shermy said earlier? Calvin's manual!
I know that was short, but I just felt like since it's been a few days since I last updated and it seemed like a fine cut-off point, I thought I might as well upload.
Thanks to the people who told me Lucy and Linus' actual last name. I would never had known! :)
Also, if people are acting out of character, that may be explained later by some side-effects of personalitifying energy. Still, don't stop giving me feedback about character accuracy...I still like to know :)
