Lucius: I know that there aren't actually any trains. I was trying to speak metaphorically, since if the exit isn't working then you could say "the trains aren't running" and I thought that might come across as having a kinda amusing double meaning because the station isn't fulfilling its intended purpose even if the trains were never-
Lucius: Never mind. Point is, we ought to make sure that the door will get us outta here. Even if these chains stick with us, there'll be someone in the real world who can get them off.

Greninja sees the divebombing Gyarados coming, pushes Shade a distance away, and vanishes under the water.
"Well that escalated quickly. Thank you Overkill."
<I like bubbles.>
"So, how have the two of you been since our last encounter?"
Ren: -Ren face plants the table a couple of times.- And that Bisharp that went on to be killed by Lucius and came back as a Yamask, which then followed us to Holon and evolved into a Steel-type Delta Species...
-Ren face plants the table a couple of more times.-
Can't I go one birthday without an unsettling revelation?
Zeal: I've been alright. I did some things.
Sarah: ...Right. I knew that. Yeah. Uh.
-She looks around, and finds the right door-
Sarah: Okay, that should be it. I think.
-She starts toward the door in question-
Lucius follows Sarah to the door, still looking around his surroundings warily - because dramatic convention dictates that if anything is going to jump out at them, it's going to do so right before they step through the exit.
Jacob: -Can't reach across to pat Ren's head, so instead holds Sylva by her tail/foot/thing and reaches over and she pats Ren's head- "Maybe next year, friend."
Sylva: <There there Uncle Ren! At least it's not the worst thing in the world. Super-great Grandad Edge is at least super nice and funny! He made a robopriest!>
Jacob: "Thank you for reminding me I need to have Ellen dismantle that."
-Well, that's boring.-
-Anyway, the door opens and glows just fine.-
Sarah: Okay, so... you two first.
Ellen: Sorry, I like Robopriest way too much. He's fun.
-It's not entirely certain when Ellen got here.-
Still looking vaguely suspicious, he steps into the glowing exit.
-Ren is consoled by Slyva-
Ren: -looking up at Ellen- Hello, Aunt Ellen. Thanks for coming. I suppose you're Eskay's or Sarah's "plus one"?
Ellen: ...I'm guessing you haven't heard about Eskay?
-Deziree sits down next to Jacob.-
Deziree: I'm surprised you didn't already know. Dune figured it out pretty quickly. Then again, he is an archaeologist...
Ren: -frowns- No. I didn't. What happened?
-Lane petpets Strom-
Lane:Awe, don't worry big guy, you're totally best surfing plushie.
Overkill: <No problem>
Jack: I haven't really done much, other than traveling here.
Psyche walks through tentatively?
Ellen: He got taken over by the influence of an obscura-enhancing, megalomania-inducing purple sword and vanished shortly after using Lucius as a near-literal puppet.
-The Mindscape trio wakes up here, perfectly normal...-
-Except the chain somehow appeared too. Cut in the exact spot that Sarashi had broken it.-
Lucius stirs awake, still somewhat groggy, and attempts to get up off the bed before he notices that the chain is still there.
Lucius: ...Okay, I'll admit I wasn't entirely expecting that. How are the chains still there if they were a mental construct?
Maul: ~Don't ask me. I wasn't looking.~
Jacob: "Darn it everyone but me seems to like him."
-Sighs, and looks at Deziree- "I suppose. Though didn't he actually have Edge tell him that back in Holon?"
Jacob: -Is wandering near the Cave of Origin- Though I do have to wonder if she was serious or if she was just joking because in all honesty that avenue of experimentation is something I'm slightly interested in pursu-
-His thoughts are cut off by the rustle of some bushes, and he rests his hands on the pommels of his swords as he scans the surroundings for the source of the sound-
-He's greeted to a green and red blur leaping out of the large tree south of the cave, and a flash of silver steel following-
-He quickly draws Kanshou and Bakuya and parries the incoming thrust and steps back-
-Before he can even take stock of the situation there's another flash of the sword lashing out at him from his assailant, coming down on him towards his collarbone, and he blocks the strike and further retreats to put some distance between them-
-Mid-step there is yet another strike, towards his heart, and he barely manages to deflect the strike with Bakuya-
-As he finishes that step back he rushes into another, trips on a tree root, and topples back over on to his rear, and finds the point of the rapier leveled at his nose, crossing his eyes to look at it-
-He is thus unprepared for the scabbard that bops him over the head, and he jerks forward, luckily the rapier had been pulled away so he didn't stab himself on it-
???: "YOU! YOU DIDN'T COME SEE ME!" -It's a distinctly feminine voice, barked angrily at Jacob-
Jacob: -His eyes widen then he takes a confused expression as he looks up- "... Veronica?"
-And he looks up at a short figure in front of him, thin, shoulder length wavy deep red-hair, she looked about Jacob's age, round and young faced, and smooth and pleasant, and far more at home smiling than being neutral, her bangs covered up one of her ruby red eyes, which looked larger than they were from her thick rimmed glasses-
-She was dressed in a white button up shirt under an emerald green vest, and wore white slacks and white dress shoes, which despite the grass and mud they were standing in, were clear of any stains-
Veronica Valentine: "Yup! Now get up you lazy little Wurmple we've got catching up to do." -She slides the rapier back into her scabbard and helps him to his feet-
-Sarah shakes the chain a bit-
Sarah: I'm not sure, admittedly, but this isn't the first time it's happened. I ended up keeping the Transistor and a reality-warping electric violin from the times I visited Psyche's mindscape. And you've already seen the extra scar damage from the Transistor visit...
-Crow is looking around, not having found much suspicious as of yet-
"Aaah I see. Now if you will excuse me for a minute, someone is about to sneak up on me."
Shade quickly whips around just as Jiraiya was about to tackle him into the water, pulls out his Pokeball, and he says
"You can't out ninja your Sensei. Return."
"Now, what have you guys been planning on doing?"
Zeal: I dunno. I'm just in Sootopolis for a change of scenery, really.
Jack: I'm here for whatever I'm needed for.
I didn't really have a plan.
Lucius: Ah... yeah, I remember.
He frowns and looks down at himself.
Lucius: Mental note: don't get stabbed in a mindscape. Though I guess "don't get stabbed" is a pretty good rule of thumb in any situation, really.
