The result of the 6th Tales of Populrity Poll is now up. I wanted write a fanfiction about it ever since I see everyone's reaction in the last Tales of festival.
I DO NOT OWN THE TALES SERIES OR THE RESULT OF THE POPULARITY POLL. THEY BELONG TO NAMCO BANDAI.
There will be OCs here because I do not know how to start it, but the Ocs here are a part of another story that I'm trying to work on. The characters might also be OCC, but I got the gist of their personality through the walkthrough and skits that I watch in YouTube, the games, and other things that I could find. So, sorry if they are OCC. I'll try my best to keep them in character.
Expect grammar mistakes and such. Enjoy!
The characters are as follows:
Koemi=normal; Suzume=Bold; Ichiko=itlacize; Zelos=underline; Yuri=Bold and italicize; Asbel=Bold and underlined; Jade=Italicized and underlined
Tales of Character Popularity Poll Part 1
On one fine day...
"Yes! The results are up!" Koemi shouted.
"What are you looking at?"
"Ack! Oh it's you Suzume." Koemi let out a sigh of relief. "Look! Look the results are up!"
She then showed her friend, her laptop and in it is the results of the 6th Tales of Character popularity poll!
"Ah! I see Yuri! And Asbel too! Wait...results for what?" Suzume asked.
"The Tales of Character popularity poll! Where you would vote who's your favorite Tales character!" Koemi explained. "And this here is the result of the 6th character popularity poll."
"So, then first place goes to Yuri!"
"Yup! Yuri got 1st place again!"
"Yuri has been in first place two times in a row. This makes it his third consecutive win. This is also Leon's third time to be in 2nd place while this is the second time that Asbel took 3rd place."
"Wow...I didn't know Yuri is that popular."
Both Koemi and Suzume look to see their friend, Ichiko, walked in. With her is our favorite chosen, Zelos.
"Who's popular?" Ichiko asked again.
"Of course they must be talking about me. I mean who wouldn't! All the ladies love The Great Zelos!"
"So, what are you talking about?" Ichiko asked again, ignoring Zelos usual antics.
"Don't ignore me!" Zelos shouted.
"Koemi was showing me the popularity poll." Suzume answered her.
"Yeah. The 6th Tales of character popularity poll."
"Ah! That's the poll where you vote your favorite Tales character. Did the result came up? Who's number 1?"
"Wait! Wait! Stop! Stop! What the hell are you guys talking about? Popularity poll?"
"It's a popularity poll based on you guys, that Tales of series." Koemi finally explained to him. "It's to show who is the most favorite and the most popular character out of everyone in the series."
"Oh I see. Then of course number 1 is..."
"Sorry I didn't quite hear that, but did you just say that first place..."
"Goes to Yuri Lowell."
"Ehhhhhh! How is that possible! How can anyone like like him!" Zelos exclaimed while pointing to Yuri, who just walked in along with Jade and Asbel.
"I mean I could get why the ladies like him. I have to admit he is good looking and that is probably the reason why the ladies vote for him, but why did he get number 1! Besides good looks, there is nothing special about him!"
"Results don't lie Zelos!"
"I demand a recount!"
"Do I even know want to know what's going on?"
"We were just talking about the 6th Tales of character popularity poll."
"It's where people vote on their favorite Tales character. It's basically showing who's the most popular character in the whole series."
"Oya. That sounds interesting. Is this something that the people in your world do?"
"Then what's this Tales of?"
"It's a popularity poll based on you guys."
"Yup. You guys are the Tales of series. A really popular game in our world and since there is enough characters they've put on the popularity poll to see who is the most popular character out of everyone of you."
"Oya. That sounds interesting. I wonder how popular I am."
"I could care less."
"But don't you want to know who's the most popular right now Yuri?" Suzume asked.
"Not really. I could care less of what people think of me. It not like it'll make a difference of who I am or what I do anyway."
"What about you, Asbel?"
"It is true that it does sound interesting, but Yuri is right. It's just a poll on who's popular. I don't really care on who's popular right now or how popular I am."
"Third place is Asbel!"
"That's right! Third place goes to Asbel Lhant! You're the third most popular character in the series!"
"Yup! Not only that... this is your second time for being in third place since on the last popularity poll you were in third place too."
"Eh, really?I didn't know I was that popular! How embarrassing! hehe." Asbel blushes as he scratch his head sheepishly.
"Oi. I thought you said you don't care how popular you are right now."
"Ahhh, that was before, this is now."
"So then who got first place?"
"For his third consecutive win, 1st place goes too...YURI LOWELL!"
"Yuri got 1st place in the popularity poll and not only that his is your third time being in 1st place meaning that you are still the very most popular in the whole entire series."
"Ehhhh. I'm flattered."
"What happened to 'I could care less of what people think of me'?"
"That was then, this is now."
"Then what did Zelos get?"
"Ahhh, I see. No wonder why."
"It's rigged I tell you! Rigged! I demand a recount!"
"Ma. Ma. There's nothing you could do now Zelos, but accept it."
"That's right Zelos. Eventhough you didn't make it to the top three at least you know how popular you are."
"That's right Zelos! At least you are at the top 10 which is good!"
"Shut up! I don't need your pity!"
"Now that I think about it...7th place is better than what he got at the last popularity poll."
"What did he get at the last poll?"
"10th place 5 down below Loyld!"
Zelos is now down on the floor depressed. You could see clouds hovering above him as he sighs. Apparently he is shocked and can't believe he was beaten by Lloyd who he thought might not be that popular than him.
"Did I do something wrong?"
"Koemi maybe you shouldn't say what place Loyld got."
"But it's true isn't it?"
"Hahahaha. And You know what they say, the truth hurts."
"You...You're enjoying this aren't you?"
"Why Ichiko, where ever did you get that idea? I'm just stating the fact."
"If it makes you feel any better you got a high place than Lloyd this time."
"What did Lloyd get?"
Koemi looked at the results again. "8th place. So, you got up to two places while Lloyd drop from his 5th place to 8th place."
"Sou ka! I guess I really am popular!"
"He got back up fast."
"He sure did."
"I guess as long as he beat Lloyd he's happy."
Ignoring Zelos ranting, Jade walked up to Koemi.
"What is it Jade?"
"I'm curious, what place did I get in this poll?"
"Well you got..." Koemi looked at the results, but froze on what she saw. (wait...it's a bad idea to tell this to Jade. Who knows what he'll do?)
"Is something wrong?"
"N...nothing is wrong."
"Then what did I get?"
"S..sorry Jade I can't tell you."
"Why? It's not like I'm gonna kill you or anything."
"How can you say that with that smile on your face? *whisper* plus...you really will kill me if I tell you this."
"Ah uh it's nothing."
"Well then why don't you tell me."
"*Gulping* (please, don't let anything bad happen) 17th..."
"Hmmm...and what place did I get last time."
"Jade why are looking at me like that?"
"Whatever do you mean?"
"You're creeping me out Jade."
"Why Koemi I'm hurt that you would think that way."
"I don't believe you."
"Now why don't we see the results."
"Wha? No! What are you going to do with my laptop." Koemi exclaimed while hugging her laptop.
"I just want to see the results."
"I don't believe you. Asbel help!" Koemi runs and hides behind Asbel.
"Huh?" Asbel looked at her weirdly before looking to find Jade smiling evilly. "J...Jade."
"Bring all to ash and ruin..."
"Oi! Don't cast a spell here!"
Before anyone says anything...the ending suck I know. I don't really know how to end it but yeah.
Anyways, as mentioned above, in the 6th Tales of Character Popularity poll:
1st-Yuri Lowell(In his third consecutive win)
7th-Zelos Wilder (two up from his previous poll which is the 10th...At least the voice actor for Zelos is happy)
8th-Lloyd Irving (he dropped down from his 5th place)
17th- Jade Curtiss (dropped down from 9th place)
Expect more to come!
