Human!Monkey Mambo

Chapter 1: Gibson! What Did You Do?!

Summary: Times have changed for the Hyper Force and apparently something else will be changing as well. Sure, Gibson is a great scientist, but whoever said he was any good at chemistry? (he DOES blow chemicals up in the theme sequence)

Notes and Disclaimers: The original idea was from my friend, Neko-chan, and her fic H!T Boogie. I have high hopes she will continue said fic and post it, because it is quite amusing. This fic is done slightly out of continuity since I'm only assuming what happens in their futures. I'd also like to take this moment to say the following. I do not own or have any affiliation with the creators/producers or Super Robot Monkey Team Hyper Force Go! This was written in the spirit of amusing those of the fanbase and getting no money from it. Think of it like charity, heehee

If by some odd sort of events Mr. Nieli does read this, "Beginnings" is much better... pleasedon'thurtorsuemeIhavenothingIswear.

Chiro sighed as he looked round the room. It was the spare room that he and the rest of the team started keeping little reminders of their past adventures. The shock jacket Jonny Sunspot had given Chiro during the team's first encounter with The Sun Riders and the special badge they gave him from the second. There was Mandarin's helmet, for some reason there was an empty cardboard box from Wonder Fun Meat World and other such memorabilia.

"Man, it's been too long," Chiro said. A finger ran over the glass dome that covered a few pieces of hair left over from Thingy's visit. He briefly wondered if Thingy was still alive, who knew how long his species lived and if he remembered the kind human.

It had been a few years after the final annihilation of the Skeleton King and his followers, including Mandarin and Valina. The threat of the Dark Ones was still out there in the galaxy, which led the Hyper Force on their current mission. They were searching along the outer edge of the galaxy where their scanners had picked up traces of dark energy.

"Hey Chiro, whatcha doin?" Otto asked. He had been on his way to the kitchen when he noticed the spare room door open.

"Huh? Oh, nothing much I guess, just thinking about all of the stuff we've been through," Chiro smiled at the green monkey, came out of the room and closed the door.

"Yeah, that stuff all did happen a long time ago," Otto agreed.

"It's been about three or four years now," Chiro said.

"Aren't you, like, an adult human now, Chiro?" Otto looked up at him and realized, not quite for the first time, how tall Chiro had become. The boy, who was now a young man, must be about five feet and seven or eight inches tall now.

Chiro chuckled. "I suppose, eighteen is usually the age when they start calling you an adult, but no matter how old I am I'll never be too old for you guys,"

"Aww, that sounds so sweet!"

They both walked to the kitchen together and the two of them searched through the cabinets trying to agree on a snack. Sprx walked in to find both of their behinds sticking out of a pair of cabinets and he just leaned against the doorway for a moment.

"Uhm, what are you two doing?" Sprx finally asked after not being able to find anything witty to say.

"We- ow!" Otto started, and then he bumped his head on the top of the cabinet. He slowly backed out, rubbing the back of his head. "We're trying to find a snack,"

"Uh huh, I see," Sprx muttered. "Do me a favor then, Otto? Go help Gibson with his experiment. I asked what he was doing, and I don't think he's stopped talking long enough to notice I was gone, but I was supposed to monitor some sort of chemical drip. The thing is so slow I doubt it's moved,"

"Oh, okay, just help Chiro, then, and come and get Gibson and me when you two are done," Otto said cheerfully as he got up to leave the room.

Chiro backed out of the cabinet, being much more careful than Otto.

"It probably wasn't a good idea to leave when Gibson asked you to watch something like a chemical drip, what if it causes an explosion?" Chiro asked.

"Nah, it's slow as a snail, plus Gibson knows me, would he honestly leave me responsible with something that dangerous?" Sprx asked.

"Well, you do make a good point,"

"Hey, are you saying I'm unreliable?"

"Funny, Sprx, you know that's not what I meant. Now come on, let's make something to eat, I'm starving,"

Otto skipped all the way to Gibson's lab. He could hear Gibson talking about chemicals and their different affects and reactions to other chemicals. He tiptoed into the lab, Gibson didn't notice, and he stood by a device that was, as Sprx had said, slowly dripping one chemical into another in a beaker. Otto watched as another drop fell from the thin tube and into the orange-colored liquid below.

"Hey, Gibson," Otto said as soon as the scientist took a break from his lecture. "What is it that you're doing, anyway?"

Gibson spun to face Otto. "Where did Sprx go?"

"He came into the kitchen and asked if we could switch places," Otto said with a smile. "So I came to watch the liquid while Sprx and Chiro make a snack,"

Gibson gasped and quickly grabbed the beaker. He brought it close to his face and peered inside the glass. Otto was amused at how Gibson's face looked distorted by the glass and liquid. After another moment of scrutinizing the beaker, Gibson sighed and set it back on the table.

"What happened?" Otto asked.

"Nothing I suppose, I can't tell how much of the liquid went into here," Gibson sighed.

"Is it ruined?" Otto asked, now feeling a little guilty.

"I believe so, without knowing how much of the mixture went inside, if I add anything else it could have an adverse affect," Gibson explained as he put the beaker aside.

"Oh, I'm sorry," Otto muttered, looking at the ground. "So, uh, what are you trying to make, anyway?"

"I'm trying to come up with something that will change back anyone or anything that has been touched by a Dark One's energy so we can help heal infected worlds if destroying the Dark One is not possible at the time," Gibson explained.

"That sounds like it would be helpful,"

"Yes, well, what would be helpful is if I could keep the correct chemicals together,"

Otto stayed quiet and watched Gibson continue to putter around the lab, muttering about different formulas and other chemicals. Otto's mind began to wander until Gibson's voice snapped him out of it.

"Otto, could you please hand me the metamorphing component," Gibson said.

Otto shook his head. "Huh, wha?"

"The orange chemical on the shelf," Gibson said.

"Oh, okay," Otto looked around and found the beaker of liquid that Gibson had set aside earlier.

Otto held the beaker towards Gibson, who turned to him with a tube of yellow liquid and poured it into the beaker. As soon as he did, the chemical started to bubble and turn dark.

"Uh oh," Otto said, holding the beaker away from him.

"Otto, did you get that from the shelf?" Gibson asked, knowing the answer and fearing the confirmation.

"I thought it was the shelf!" Otto cried, now realizing that something really bad was going to happen.

The beaker started to shake. Gibson grabbed Otto's arm and pulled him away, causing him to drop the beaker. Before the beaker hit the ground, the liquid inside of it exploded. The force from the explosion blew Otto and Gibson into a wall.

A grayish-green smoke quickly filled the room and began flowing into the hallway and vents of the Super Robot, filling every inch of space with the smoke.

In the kitchen, Sprx and Chiro were checking the cheese and chili dip they had made and put in the oven. When they turned back around they found clouds of gray-green smoke pouring into the room.

"What the heck is that?" Sprx wondered.

"I have no clue, but I don't like it," Chiro murmured, taking a few steps back.

Sprx, being a little braver, stepped forward a little and leaned towards the smoke to smell it. It immediately threw him into a coughing fit.

"Sprx! Are you all right?" Chiro asked.

By that time the smoke had nearly filled the room and Chiro started coughing as well. They both collapsed, still coughing, then after a few moments they became still.

Nova had been training in her room, as usual. She didn't notice her room was filling with the strange smoke until she was overtaken by it. She also was thrown into a coughing fit until she collapsed, twitching a few times before she passed out.

Antauri's eyes snapped open. He had been taking a recharging nap, but he was disturbed and awoken when he got the sense that something was terribly wrong. His team was in trouble.

He looked up at the vent in his room and could see the odd-colored smoke pouring in. Antauri quickly stood and ran out of his room only to find that the smoke also covered the floor of the hallway and was quickly rising, like a fog. He made his way towards the control room as fast as possible, and though his breathing wasn't affected by the smoke he could somehow get the feeling that it was affecting the surface of his body. He could register a tingling sensation but he had no time to wonder why.

Antauri reached the control room and quickly pressed a few buttons, but even as a fully robotic monkey he also fell under the spell of the smoke. He was able to press one last button before also collapsing into unconsciousness like the rest of his team.

What Antauri had done was activate the ventilation system to blow clean air throughout the robot and clear the strange smoke out. It took about seven minutes, but even when the smoke had cleared, it only revealed the six members of the Hyper Force lying unconscious.

It was about twenty minutes before anything, or anyone, in the Super Robot stirred. Sprx was the first to begin waking up.

"Ugh, what the heck hit me?" Sprx muttered as he put a hand to his head. But as soon as his hand touched his head, his eyes snapped wide open.

His helmet was gone. He could tell his fingers were longer and thinner as he ran them through hair instead of fur. Out of the corner of his eyes he could see that the hair he now had growing out of his head was long, just past his shoulders, and was pin-straight. He looked down at his outstretched legs and lower body and realized that it looked a lot like Chiro's.

"Gibson!" Sprx screamed. "What did you do?!?"

A Note from the Author

Well, I, indeed, am truly back again. I do want to warn everyone, though, that so far I have become severely stuck in this story. I have another chapter and a half past this, an so far I've stopped. It really, really stinks (especially since I was planning to convert a piece of this story for Kozu-chan . ne, gomen nasai!!!). However, hopefully the angels of ficdom will smile upon me and I shall continue the story, in the meantime I'll do my usual wait-a-week and post the second chapter, so I suppose I'll keep the updates to sunday nights. Likely updates will occer after 11pm. (sighs) Hope all is well everyone, and I do hope you all enjoyed this so far!
