This weekend I attended PAX Australia with my girlfriend. I may be the only Australian to have attended the very first PAX in 2004, and the expo holds a special place in my heart. I had also been looking for a good way to pop the question, so as soon as PAX Aust was announced, I began conjuring an elaborate plan. It began with giving my girlfriend a mysterious envelope several months ago, that she must keep with her at all times in case the time comes to open it.
So on Friday, we both cosplayed as Lucas and Dawn, the player characters from Pokemon Gen 4. When she least expected it, I began to play, from a very loud portable speaker, my own karaoke version of the pokemon theme song, with the backup vocals changed from, “Pokemon, gotta catch ‘em all!” to “You’re the one, you’re the best of all!”
While singing the song, I got down on one knee, pulled a Pokeball out of my pocket with was a ring inside, and once the song was over, I said “I choose you. Will you marry me?”
…she said yes, with tears streaming down her face, at which point I told her it was time to open the envelope.
Inside was a note saying “Congratulations! Your BOYFRIEND has evolved into FIANCÉ!”, as well as a handkerchief to dry her tears.
