IC:

Character name: Shimura Shinpachi
Fandom: Gintama
Timeline: Post Benizakura arc
Age: 16
~*Magical*~ abilities and strengths: He's a rather competent swordsman and samurai, as well as has the amazing ability to not get noticed, save for his glasses.
How would they use their abilities?: He would use them to defend the honor of all otaku, and upstanding people everywhere.
Appearance: GLASSES. The plainest character in the entire series, Shinpachi’s most notable feature is his glasses. Other than that, he is a very ordinary Japanese youth. He wears dark blue, or occasionally light blue hakama, and a gray or white gi with blue trim that matches the color of his hakama. He wears traditional tabi socks and waraji as well.
Background/Personality: Shinpachi was born into a family of samurai. Canonly, there is no mention of his mother, but his father died when he was very young, leaving him and his older sister to inherit their dojo. Unfortunately, as Shinpachi is quite bitter about, their father also left them with many debts. The dojo could not sustain itself, as it had no students thanks to the sword ban placed upon Edo by the Amanto, and as such, Shinpachi and his sister Tae were forced to work just to keep their dojo. The dojo is their pride, and even though samurai are considered to be extinct in their world, Shinpachi and his sister both feel pride in their upbringing. Shinpachi still aspires to be a samurai, and comes under the employ of Sakata Gintoki, a jack-of-all trades. It is through him, and Gintoki’s friends, that Shinpachi begins to develop into his own samurai.

Personality wise, Shinpachi is the most down to earth of the entire cast. He is quick to point out everyone’s flaws, outwardly states when people are being nonsensical or ridiculous, and is more often than not, the straight man, played off of by almost everyone. He is often the voice of reason and is also most often ignored when he tries to voice that sense of reason. As such, he gets dragged around, thrown around, and generally manhandled and mistreated by practically everything in the entire series. On many occasions, the characters often speak to just his glasses, disregarding him completely. This usually results, like many other situations where his castmates are acting foolish, unruly, or absurd, in him screaming, flailing, howling, and generally making a huge scene on the spot. In fact, Shinpachi likes to think that he's the most rational one of the bunch, but the truth is that he's just as loud, obnoxious, and completely insane as everyone else, though his insanity is more of an effect of theirs. Other than that, he is susceptible to many of the other woes that befall teenage boys. He has girl problems (in the sense that he has no girls and an overabundance of problems), he constantly feels inadequate (because his friends and family constantly remind him that he's ranked 8th in the character popularity polls no matter what he does), and he's always low on cash (because Gintoki never pays him). However, he wants to grow stronger, and though he’ll never outwardly admit it, he looks up to Gintoki as a mentor, and Kagura as a sister. He gets frustrated with, and fights with them both constantly, but when push comes to shove, he considers them family. The same could be said for the rest of the cast of Gintama, as all of the characters congregate around Gintoki, Shinpachi has found himself amongst a hodgepodge of people and other alien races. These people have helped him to grow, and even though he outwardly complains about their presence, he's happy that his life seems all the wealthier for the people in it.

As a swordsman, however, Shinpachi has shown that he can compete with the some of the series best. He might not have the experience that Gintoki and Katsura have, but in true shounen fashion, he has the determination and skill, both of which are recognized by Gintoki. At the onset of the Benizakura arc, Gintoki battles Nizou, one of the arcs antagonists and a blind samurai and assassin that he had fought previously in an earlier arc, while Shinpachi watches. During the fight, Nizou uses the demon sword Benizakura to not only shatter Gintoki's bokuto, but slice him deeply across the chest. With a follow up strike, he stabs Gintoki in the side and pins him to the wall, where he says that Gintoki can no longer be a samurai without a sword. Gintoki responds by seizing Nizou's arm and saying that "He has one more sword, just in case. But he can't draw it." A moment later, Shinpachi leaps into the fight and cleanly slices off Nizou's arm. In fact, Shinpachi often times exhibits great strength and skill under great duress and has defeated several opponents with tremendous blows that were believed to be impossible for someone like him.

Having been on the Thor before, Shinpachi will retain all of his memories from the brief time he was here. His reason for leaving was that he was called through a wormhole to the Jump offices with the offer of renegotiating his contract, getting a bigger salary, and a proper training arc. However, he was stuck in the waiting room for the entire duration of his disappearance, and was promptly booted back out through the wormhole and back into arrivals when it was discovered that "some asshole left their glasses in the waiting room."

Have you read up on how the game works?: The plug-in is Flamingferret, and the ways he could earn money are through odd jobs, going into business for himself, or mooching it off of people.

1st person sample:


O-Oi! Oi! Is this thing on? Hello? What the hell is going on here?! What happened to Edo?! Is this an Amanto ship?! What’s going on?! WHAT THE HELL ARE THEY EVEN THINKING?! “DON’T PANIC?!” HOW COULD I NOT PANIC?! THEY SAID THE PLANET WAS DESTROYED!!

O-OI!! GIN-SAAAAAAN!! KAGURA-CHAAAAAAN! ANE-UEEEEEE?!

I-I can’t be the only one that survived right? Right?

Oh! I’m in space! Maybe…

SAKAMOTO-SAAAAAN?! MUTSU-SAAAAAAAAN?! ARE YOU OUT THERE?!

Is anyone out there…? C-Come on guys, this isn’t funny. Where is everyone?! IS THIS HOW YOU WANTED IT TO END, SORACHI-SAN?! I ALWAYS KNEW YOU WERE A TERRIBLE WRITER BUT THIS IS THE WORST! YOU CAN’T JUST GIVE THE SERIES AN IDEON ENDING AND EXPECT EVERYONE TO BE HAPPY ABOUT IT!!

3rd person sample:

Shinpachi wandered the corridors, clutching his guide to his chest. He was used to seeing aliens, but what he wasn’t used to was where he was. The world couldn’t have been destroyed, right? He wasn’t here all alone, right? He walked slowly, adjusting his glasses and scanned the line of new refugees. A silver perm, a purple parasol, a giant, white dog, someone keeling over about bad egg dishes, or even an oversized duck following behind someone parading around as a space captain would be a welcome sight right now.

Anything.

He called out their names one after another, in hopes that maybe he’d hear some shout back. A complaint, or the sound of people calling each other names, or even the sound of a retarded brawl over soba would make him rush over. But no one answered. Not yet anyway. He looked down at the cold, steel floor. He thought of asking a passing alien, describing his friends to him, but when he tried, he was just shoved aside. Stomping his foot in frustration, he turned to leave. To hell with this, he thought. He wasn’t going to take that.

He never thought he’d miss the constant fighting. The explosions of bombs detonating, the complaints of old men and the berating of a girl who acted like she was well beyond her time. He never thought he’d miss the preposterous sight of a creepy duck and the backwards ramblings of a man who had an entire soap opera channel in his head but always seemed to be getting bad reception.

They had better come and get him, otherwise who was he going to follow behind now?

Questions?: NOPE
Did you put your characters name and fandom in the subject: YES
pattan: (Even if I ignore them they won't go away)
Oi...

Oi...this is a joke now, right?

Right?

This isn't really happening. 

You guys...you guys aren't cats right now, right?

The director didn't get drunk again and decide to make Nekotama actually happen, did he?

I'm going to wake up and this is all going to be a nightmare.

You won't be pawing at my feet. 

Or "Nyaaaing" or "Nyoooing."

Gin-san won't look like Garfield.

Katsura-san won't be chasing a beam of light across the room.

This isn't happening.
pattan: (I'M RAISING MY POWER LEVEL)
Today I thought that I, Glasses Glassestaro, would share some personal entries from my diary. Girls have diaries, you know. Men have journals have Captain’s logs.

Although I would never be Captain of anything, ah. Captains have to be able to see very far away, and I cannot even see the tape designating which part of my dorm is mine.

“Paahead-sensei has no brain. I wish he'd get a brain. Also, I wish he would stop penalizing people for having better and nicer smelling hair than him.”
-------------------------------------------------------

“Flowright-sensei is really nice. But he doesn't seem to understand that Katsura-senpai should get more sparkly, fuzzy kitten stickers on his ESL homework, like Elizabeth-sensei puts. I can't believe he is completely overlooking such an important part of the learning process.”

-------------------------------------------------------

“Ah, I really hope Haruko-sensei allows me to spend time with her new hobo. We smell just the same, it is uncanny, uwah.”

-------------------------------------------------------

"MY LOVE FOR ZELDA-SENSEI BURNS LIKE THE GLARE OF SUNLIGHT OFF OF MY GLASSES! MY SOUL IS ON FIRE LIKE SO MANY UNFORTUNATE ANTS CAUGHT IN THE MAGNIFIED BEAMS OF MY ENORMOUS LENSES. IF I CAN'T HAVE HER, NO ONE ELSE CAN!"

-------------------------------------------------------

“Kratos-sensei is an asshole. We do not play dodgeball nearly enough. I wish he would paint a target on my head, for fun.”

-------------------------------------------------------

“I rigged the election. I hope Faize-senpai doesn't find out.”

-------------------------------------------------------

“I don't understand why Sodia-senpai notices me. It is probably because she has an ugly haircut, and is on the same level as a lowly megane like myself. Or maybe it is because, like me, she is also a stalker.”

-------------------------------------------------------

“Sodia's roomate, Konata-senpai, should go outside. I think her hair is stupid, too. It's too blue. This is not some silly anime, what kind of color is blue for hair. I will never score any relationship points.”

-------------------------------------------------------

“Magnus-kun is much cooler than me. I wish we could be friends. Kendo practice is three times a week, wherever detention is held.”

-------------------------------------------------------

“I'm creepy and I have a creepy stalker-crush on Taiwan-chan.  Ah, I hope everyone has fun at prom.  I will have fun with my hug pillow, since I am too much of a pathetic loser to ask Taiwan-senpai.


-------------------------------------------------------

“Katsura-sama deserves 100 kittens at minimum. I wish I were more like Katsura-sama, but I will never be like Katsura-sama, because I am a megane dork.

*sobbu*

*sobbu*

;;o;;”


I hope Everyone enjoyed these readings from my diary.  It's not a journal, as I am not a man or a captain.  I am just a pair of glasses.

pattan: (School Uniform)
Um.  Th-Thank you and good day!  I'd like to take this time to welcome you all to the new semester.

Also, thank you all for voting me in as class president!  I promise you that I won't let you down!  Don't be afraid to come to me with any problems you might have.  I know that if we all work hard, and study hard, we'll have an amazing semester!

(ooc: From here on in, I'll be using [livejournal.com profile] gotonly8votes  to comment.  LET'S DO THIS!)

pattan: (THIS ISN'T EYESHADOW I AM NOT EMO)
GIN-SAN!! WHAT THE HELL DID YOU DO?!

WHY IS THERE CAKE BATTER EVERYWHERE?!  DID YOU EVEN MAKE THE CAKE OR THROW IT ALL OVER THE WALLS?!

And what the hell is that smell?!  Did you go out with Hasegawa-san again?


Welcome to all the newcomers...I'm Shimura Shinpachi from the Gintama fandom. 
pattan: (This isn't over!)
ATTENTION, I HAVE AN ANNOUNCEMENT TO MAKE ON BEHALF OF KATSURA-SAN!

I'll just post a picture of the ad we made instead...

Cut for the sake of everyone's friend lists! )

THERE.  NOW WHICH ONE OF YOU HIT ME AND KNOCKED ME OUT?!

YOU ASKED ME TO MAKE A FLYER FOR YOU SO WE COULD GET MORE PLAYERS AND THIS IS THE THANKS I GET?! I LOOK LIKE I'VE JUST BEEN IN A STREET BRAWL!

pattan: (WHY AM I IN AN INVISIBLE BOX?!)
EVERYONE SHUT UP! NO ONE TALK TO ME! GO AWAY! I DON'T WANT TO TALK TO ANYONE!
pattan: (JUST SHUT UP ALREADY)
THE ONLY WAY THIS IS A DISASTER IS THE FACT THAT I'M STRANDED IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE DOING WHAT I ALWAYS DO BACK AT THE YOROZUYA ANYWAY!

I've been trapped in some meadow since Monday with Russia.  Luckily, there was a cabin nearby and the old man and his grandson let us stay.  This is, he let us stay in exchange for helping around the home. 

Which wouldn't be a problem if SOMEONE didn't keep getting in the way!

I EXPECT THE NEXT TIME I GET HIT WITH A STUPID DISASTER, SOMETHING ELSE COULD HAPPEN OTHER THAN JUST RELOCATING ME TO ANOTHER SPOT JUST TO CONTINUE MY JOB!

pattan: (DON'T DEFINE ME BY MY GLASSES)
If there is anyone out there who can help me with a certain problem, I would really appreciate it.

Oh, I should probably introduce myself.  You can call me megane_samurai.  The problem I'm having is that I got roped into a bet by a crazy nationalist.  The bet is that I have to ask a girl out on a date by the beginning of next week.  Not that he has any room to talk, he doesn't even understand basic innuendo.  Anyway, the problem is that I've never been good with women.  They don't even notice me and I can't seem to work up the courage to ask someone out. 

So, I ask you e-samurai, is there any advice you can give me?  I've never even been on a date in my entire sixteen years, but I have to prove to this guy that I'm not just a pair of glasses, and that I'm a true man!

(OOC: HAVE AN EXPLANATION. Shinpachi thinks he posted this to one of his favorite forums, but there was a little hiccup in his system and he posted it to LJ.  HAVE FUN.)

Mr. Miles Edgeworth!

It has come to my attention that you recently joined the many of us here at Brawl and I wish to ask you a favor!

It's well known that you are the best prosecutor there is and I seek your aid in prosecuting a known terrorist and leader of the rebel faction, Katsura Kotarou!

Not only that, but he has slandered my name at every turn!

I'll do whatever I can to pay you. and do whatever I can in order to aid in bringing him to justice!

I also know that you are a great fan of tea.  I am prepared to supply with the best tea I can afford upon request!
pattan: (FFFFFFFFF2)
Gin-san?

WHY IS THERE NOTHING BUT BOXES CAKE MIX IN THE YOROZUYA?!

WHAT HAPPENED TO ALL OF THE DAMN FOOD?!

WE DON'T EVEN HAVE THE INGREDIENTS TO MAKE THE CAKES. WHAT'S THE SENSE IN THAT?!

pattan: (WAT)
So Gin-san got us some work at a nearby chocolate factory today. They were short handed and needed some people to wrap the chocolates to be boxed up.

Everything was FINE until Kagura-chan decided we could do more and told them to speed up the conveyor belt!

AND THEN SHE WOULDN'T LET US STOP IT!

We found later that these were taken by the security camera.

Photobucket

This is Kagura-chan screaming at us and telling us to work faster, EVEN THOUGH SHE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE WORKING TOO!

The chocolates kept coming out so fast and Gin-san kept EATING THEM! WHICH WE ENDED UP OWING THE FACTORY FOR SINCE THEY CAUGHT US ON TAPE AS GIN-SAN WAS STUFFING HIS STUPID FACE!

Photobucket

THIS IS THE LAST TIME WE EVER WORK ON A JOB LIKE THIS, GIN-SAN! DID WE EVEN GET ANY OF THE MONEY FOR THE JOB OR DID YOU END UP PAYING IT ALL BACK?!
pattan: (Ah)
I'd like to apologize to everyone in regards to my first post. I didn't mean to give you all the impression that all of my posts are going to be so big as to destroy your friends pages.

Katsura-san, did you know that Elizabeth is very popular? I found some fanart of her.

Cut for nightmare fuel )

Maybe now you'll think of making sure I get invited to the annual Jump Christmas Party! THE SAME GOES FOR YOU, GIN-SAN! HOW COULD YOU?!

OOOH! And Otsuu-chan's new CD gets released this week! Gin-san, I'll be camping out with her cheering section at the release party so you'll have to fend for yourselves for awhile.  I've been waiting for this for months.

EDIT

WHY IS EVERYONE CLAPPING AND SAYING CONGRATULATIONS TO ME?!


pattan: (FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF)
G-GIN-SAN!! STOP THROWING THE FURNITURE AROUND SCREAMING BANKAI EVERY TEN MINUTES! I DON'T CARE IF YOU'RE EXCITED, OTOSE-SAN IS GOING TO COME UP HERE AND PUT A CIGARETTE OUT IN YOUR EYE IF YOU DON'T STOP!

AND STOP REFERRING TO THE YOROZUYA AS DIVISION 11 HEADQUARTERS!! HOW THE HELL ARE WE SUPPOSED TO GET ANY WORK LIKE THAT?!

A-Ah, as for the rest of you, I am Shimura Shinpachi of the Gintama fandom.  Nice to meet you all.
