-And now the continuation-
<In this world, it's KILL or BE KILLED! And who wouldn't pass up an opportunity like this?!>
-He surrounds Iggy with the "friendliness pellets"-
-Flowey cackles as the bullets close in. Iggy squeezes her eyes shut, waiting for the worst-
-She peeks out-
-...the bullets have disappeared. Even Flowey looks confused-
-A small Ember forms to the side of the sunflora, before it slams into him, sending him flying off with a yelp-
-A Shiny Darmanitan trots up-
-Iggy shrinks back before the mon speaks-
Darmanitan:<What a terrible creature, torturing such a poor innocent youth...>
-Iggy squeaks and backs up-
<Ah! Do not be afraid, my child. I am Toriel, keeper of the Ruins. I pass through this place every day to see if anyone has fallen down.>
<You are the first human to come here...in a long, long time...come, I will guide you through the catacombs.>
-She begins to walk toward the other end of the room, through a second door. Iggy follows after a moment of hesitance.-
-The following room was much more brightly lit than the last. A small pile of leaves lay between a set of two stairs, atop which stood Toriel. Iggy takes a moment to stand in the leaf pile, staring up, into the shadow of the Ruins.-
-It fills her with Determination.-

Hajime: -to Mistral- "I hope so too..."
Rumba: -to Aicha- <Hey, it's all good now.>
X-Naut 1: <Yeah, we're not the only ones...>
X-Naut א: <We... didn't exactly know what to do, and when Grodus tried going ahead. We weren't sure and... he kind of left us all behind.>
The flight was considerable slower due to the added weight but went smoothly nontheless.
Sergey: "Sometime I have to properly thank you for carrying us around so much."
-As Toriel and Iggy enter-
Toriel:<Welcome to your new home, innocent one.>
Iggy: N-New home?
Toriel:<Allow me to educate you in the operation of the Ruins.>
-She walks over a sequence of four buttons out of the six present. All except the two on the lighter parts of the floor-
<The Ruins are full of puzzles. Ancient fusions between diversions and doorkeys. One must solve them to move room to room. Please adjust yourself to the sight of them.>
-They walk to the next room.-
<To progress here, you will need to trigger several switches.>
-She smiles sweetly-
<Do not worry, I have labeled the ones that you need to flip>
-She walks to the exit. Iggy follows, flipping said switches.-
Nico: Hm... I have an idea of what you could do, but...
-gestures to the unconscious trio before them-
...First, I assume you saw our fight with these three?
Hajime: "Uh, yeah, thanks."
X-Naut א: <Uh, yeah.>

Mezzo: Anyway, here's my present.
-Mezzo hands Pianis an ice pick-
Pianis: Thanks. I have one, but you can always use more of these.
Mezzo: Yeah, I thought you'd say that.
Siren: <So, uh, what's this all about? Giving gifts?>
Pianis: Right, that's because it's my birthday. I'm 22 years old now.
Siren: <Oh, so the day you hatched from your egg?>
Pianis: Not quite...
Siren: <The day your egg was laid then?>
Pianis: ...You don't know much about human reproduction, do you?
Siren: <What? Did I say something?>
Sergey: "And especially you Mistral, I know you're still not comfortable around strangers, thanks for flying us. There is the camp, and there's my team."
Seconds later Mistral made a soft landing.
-Hajime breathes out as they come in for a landing-
Hajime: "Well, thanks for the better landing than last time."
-Buddy and Haru are with Magnus and Mirielle-
Haru: <Hello again.>
Buddy: <Oh, good, you found her?>
Magnus: <I don''t know if I should be relived or trying to kill you for worrying us so much>
Aicha: <Haha. Sorry pal.>
Magnus: <Yeah, yeah. Well guess that's a happy end.>
Hajime: "Yeah. Seems it all turned out well in the end."
Sergey: "Oh and Hajime, I can't thank you enough for translating, I don't know what would have happend without you. If you need anything, anything at all, just say it. Though, because of the rain and darkness we probably should find some shelter for now."
Mistral: <... I like the rain... it helps my fruits grow.>

Nico: Alright then. Now...
-Pulls out three Revives and feeds them to Bozaka, Gorga, and Pudge-
-They stagger to their feet groggily-
Nico: Kaguya? If you know Heal Pulse freshen these guys up.
-Kaguya hesitates for a second, then nods and Ubercharges restores the three to full health-
Bozaka: <Whee! Much better!>
Pudge: <Wait, why you help us?>
Gorga: -looks at the surrounding X-Nauts- <And who are these guys?>
Nico: Well, since you explained how we got here, we should do the same...
Gorga: <So long story short you've been on this quest to stop this crazy Metagross from uneashing an ancient evil that'll destroy the world?>
Arika: Pretty much, if with a few deviations from the script.
Nico: -smiles- And since you guys put up such a good fight... We figured you could help.
Bozaka: <Ooh, sounds like fun!> :3
Pudge: <Pudge want to beat bad guys!>
Gorga: -nods- <That ancient evil wreaking havoc is definitely bad news, so if they're in I am as well.>
-Nico nods as well, then turns to the surrounding X-Nauts-
Nico: As you can see, we're not ones to reject anyone who wants to help us... So if you guys think Grodus is going too far... You can still help us instead.
Hajime: "Uh, it's no problem.
Rumba: <Seriously, why does he hate rain so much?>
Haru: <You have to admit darkness is a reason to go inside, though.>
Rumba: <...Yeah, fair enough.>
-The X-Nauts all look at each other-
X-Naut א: <I'm in.>
X-Naut I: <As am I.>
-The other X-Nauts all give some sort of assent-
Maggie: "Okay, great. More allies is wonderful."
"Though, yeah, considering Squealer is still in danger, I'm going to go on ahead and keep heading down at a brisk pace which hopefully doesn't make my arm hurt too badly."
-She heads down-
-Nico nods at Maggie, then turns to Arika-
Nico: Grodus is next, right?
Arika: Should be. Though those three were supposed to be after him so dunno what'll happen then...
-Looks forward with grim determination-
...Let's save Squealer and take him down.
-He and the others head after Maggie-
This next bit of Robin's personal plot is a bit of a silly, fun antidote to the dark and psychological previous one, with some fine detail suggestions from Tangent. Enjoy~
-As usual on this route, it's raining heavily-
-Robin and Qwerty are fighting a wild Linoone on one of the route's many ledges, though Robin has the hood of his hoodie up due to the rain-
Linoone: -swipes at Qwerty with a Slash-
Qwerty: -is knocked back a bit, but unphased-
-Dragon Pulses the Linoone, knocking it to the ground-
-After a bit the Linoone gets up, shakes himself off, and runs off-
Robin: -fistpumps- Great, Qwerty! At this rate you'll be able to keep Dvorak in line with no problem!
-He steps forward to heal Qwerty...-
-But slips on a particularly slick part of the ledge, stumbles, and falls off-
-Robin, fortunately, lands on what appears to be a normal bed of leaves, and sits up, a bit dazed-
Robin: Gah... -checks himself- OK, good, no broken bones or anything...
-Looks a bit closer at where he landed-
Wait... Is this a... Nest?
-Feels something's looming over him, looks up to see it's a larger-than-normal female Tropius-
Tropius: <Oh you poor baby! You must be lost!>
Robin: Er, no, I'm fi-
Tropius: <I haven't heard back from my darling Must in ages! He must be so scared and alone out there, just like you! I have to take care of you!>
Robin: I can take care of myself just fine, thanks, and I'll be going now.
-He attempts to get to his feet and walk off, but his legs are promptly tied down by a Grass Knot-
Tropius: <You poor child, don't go getting yourself lost again!>
Robin: -Scowls and points an accusatory finger at her- Ma'am, I am a perfectly competent adult and I've got a team of Dragon-types I can use against you if you don't let me go.
Tropius: -balks- <Talking back to me? With threats? You need to learn some manners, I'm trying to help you!>
-Robin's Pokeballs are all pulled away by another Grass Knot-
Tropius: <Now I'll be taking good care of you until you're ready to go to college!>
Robin: HOW DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHAT COLLEGE IS YOU'RE A FUCKING WILD POKEMO-
???: <Sorry to interupt your bickering session, but I'd like my Trainer back, lady.>
-Both Robin and the Tropius turn their heads to see Qwerty has managed to make his way down to them-
Tropius: -huffs- <No. You're too small to keep him safe.>
Qwerty: <I pack more of a punch than you'd think.>
Tropius: <Then prove it!>
-Attempts to blast him with a Leaf Storm, but... -
Qwerty: <You're gonna have to try harder than that.>
-Blasts the Tropius with a Dragon Pulse-
Tropius: -Stumbles back a bit, but quickly regains her composure-
<You won't harm this poor boy!>
-Strikes Qwerty with an Air Slash, knocking him back himself-
<I'm not trying to hurt him, I'm trying to hurt you! Whatever the heck you are, I wish I could still see...>
...Tropius! She's a Tropius!
Qwerty: <...Is that so?>
-Spits a Sludge Bomb at the Tropius, which smacks her in the face for heavy damage-
-Tries to shake the goop out of her eyes-
Qwerty: <Now leave my Trainer alone.>
-Blasts her with an Ice Beam, frosting over most of her body and causing her to finally collapse-
-Right after she does, Qwerty starts glowing, his body growing at a rapid rate and sprouting new appendages-
-Once the glow fades he's a Goodra-
Goodra!Qwerty: -blinks his newly-regenerated-eyes- <Finally, I can see again! Much better.>
Tropius: -Staggers weakly to her feet, then blinks at the newly-evolved Qwerty-
<...Well then. Seems now you are big and strong enough to take care of this lost child!>
Robin: Yes, he very most definitely is. So in light of that why don't you let me go and try to find that Must kid of yours and see how he's doing?
Tropius: <Good idea! See you, you two!>
-Undoes the Grass Knots tying Robin down and flies off-
-Robin gets to his feet, brushes himself off, and sighs-
Robin: Well... To say that was hectic would be an understatement...
-He turns to Qwerty and smiles brightly-
Thank you so much though, Qwerty.
Qwerty: <Welcome. Though now I'm fully evolved we should probably go meet up with Vyvyan before we run into any more crazy overprotective moms.>
-He gathers up his Pokeballs before he and Qwerty head off-

-It seems to be a bit of a walk to the next room-
Toriel:<Just...Ms. Toriel, my child.>
Iggy:O-Oh...uhm...so...you said...I'd be living here?
-Toriel looks saddened.-
Toriel:<Yes, young one...just as all who were locked in or fallen in have and will continue to do so.>
Toriel:<Nothing to concern yourself with, dear. Ah, here we are!>
-Before Iggy can press further, they arrive in a room with a dummy-
<Now, as a human living in the underground, other Pokemon may attack you. You will need to be prepared for this situation. However, worry not! The process is simple.>
Iggy:I...I'm gonna...have to fight them?
Toriel:<Heavens! No! When you encounter another Pokemon, you will enter a fight. Whilst in one, strike up a friendly conversation!>
<Stall for time, I will come to resolve the conflict. Why, go on and practice talking to the dummy.>
-She goes to block the door for the tutoria-Oooooh goodness I got it now.-
-Hey, come on focus.-
-Iggy's Soul pops out again as she nears the Dummy-
-She...does look confused, though-
Iggy:Uhm...what..do I say to a dummy...?
Hm...cotton heart, button eye?
-Nope, still nothing.-
You are the apple of my eye? Hey, I rhymed!
-Iggy keeps thinking of something to say.-
-And the dummy up and floats away.-
-Toriel has very much this face◊ upon seeing that.-
T-The next room awaits.
-Through the door she goes.-
-After a while of walking, Maggie, Memory, the defected X-Nauts, and the rest of the group come upon a throne room-
-As they come in, they notice a certain Metagross looking at the wall-
Maggie: "Hey! Grodus!"
-Grodus twitches a bit after hearing the voice and answers without turning around-
Grodus: <So... you've come, have you?>
Toriel:<This room also contains a puzzle, I wonder if you can figure it out...>
-She begins to lead Iggy through the room, when suddenly a Palpioad hops at her!-
-She stumbles back, but as soon as the Froggit prepares to leap at her, Toriel steps in, shooting it a glare that could pierce steel.-
-Needless to say, it shies away and hops off.-
-After Toriel helps Iggy up, they come to a floating platform, full of spikes-
Toriel:<This is the puzzle, but...>
-She olds out a hand-
<Here, take my hand for a moment.>
-Iggy accepts the hand, and soon Toriel leads them across a safe path through the spikes.-
-She lets go after they cross-
<Puzzles...seem a little too dangerous for now.>
-And on they go-
<You have done excellently thus far, my child.>
<However...I have a difficult request to ask of you.>
<I would like you to walk to the end of the room by yourself.>
<Forgive me for this.>
-She runs away.-
-She takes off running down the, quite long, hallway. Eventually, she reaches a weirdly out of place pillar.-
-She looks behind he pillar...and finds Toriel-
Toriel:<Oh, uh...greetings, my child. Do not worry, I did not leave you.>
Toriel:<Ah...well, thank you for trusting me.>
Iggy:But why'd ya run off like that?
Toriel:<To test your independence!>
Iggy:Oh! Well ya don't gotta worry! I'm 10 and my Papa lets me hang out all by m'self!
Toriel:That is good to know, young one. Now, I must attend to some business further in, and you must stay alone for some time. Please remain here. It's far to dangerous to explore by yourself.>
<I have an idea. I will give you a cell pho->
-Iggy pulls out her phone.-
Iggy:I have one! =D
Toriel:Oh! Then this is easy! I shall simply give you my number, then.>
-She turns, smiling sweetly back at Iggy.-
<If you need anything, just call. Be good, alright?>
-And she is gone.-
Iggy:Okay, I'm bored!
-She follows after-
''Hello? This is Toriel. You have not left the room, have you? There are a few puzzles ahead I have yet to explain. It would be dangerous to try and solve them yourself. Be good, alright?-
-Iggy finds another Froggit.-
-They talk for a little bit-
-And after, Iggy plays in a nearby leaf pile-
-It fills her with Determination-
Arika: We have. And I know someone much like you who can come better than you ever could.
Nico: -scowls- We're here to take you down and get Squealer back.
Kaguya: <Are you really insane enough to unleash something that'll doom us all?>
Bozaka: <I dunno about the ancient evil, but beating you up sounds fun from what everyone else is saying!> :3
Pudge: <Pudge wonder if Grodus have tasty bits.>
Gorga: <You're outnumbered and outmatched, you metal creep. I'd suggest you hand over the Emboar if you don't want to get hurt.>

Maggie: "...Yeah! Most of that!"
<Heh... You seem to think I would stop after all this?>
<After all this work put in? Lives lost?>
<You certainly have been persistent...>
<Getting all the other Crystal Stars and stopping us every time it came to direct confrontation...>
<The failure of all my soldiers...>
<That hothead Crump...>
<Even the computer I programmed with my own 4 claws...>
<They all failed and left me in the end.>
<Even when all this I've been doing has been for the good of all of us.>
<What do the capabilities of this alleged one like me matter in the midst of all that?>
<I was hoping it wouldn't come to this, but it seems you've left me no choice.>
-He turns around-
<Even as you've torn everything I care about from me...>
-He hits the ground with the staff and four green X-like machines come out of the staff and surround him in a Protect Barrier-
Grodus: <I SWEAR I WILL REVIVE THE ALAKAGROSS!>

Sergey: "So... seems my tent isn't really big enough for us all... anyone got a room for now?"
Hajime: "I've got one at the Center."
Sergey looked at the tent
Sergey: "Mind... sharing? I'll pay if you want - but anything is better than this tent right now."
-Iggy spends some time, going down the fairly linear path of the Ruins, solving a myriad of puzzles along the way. Eventually, she comes to a room with a Gastly lying on a bed of leaves-
Gastly: Z Z Z Z Z Z Z Z Z Z
Gastly: Z Z Z Z Z Z Z Z Z Z Z <Are they gone yet...?> Z Z Z Z Z Z Z Z
-They...seem to be pretending to sleep.-
-Move them with force?-
-Not the Iggy way!-
Iggy:Uhm...scuse me...? Mr. Ghost?
-Iggy dodges a few tears-
Iggy:Oh! Why're you so sad? Uhmmm....Why can't ghosts be spooped? Cause it doesn't faze them! =D
Napstablook:<heh. . .>
Iggy:Uhm...why don't ghosts like alarm clocks? Cause they wanna rest in peace!
Napstablook:<Heh heh. . . .>
-He begins crying again, but this time, they float up, making a little top hat!-
Napstablook:<I call it..."dapper blook"...do you...like it. . .?>
Iggy:-nodnodnods-That's super cool! And it's really cute on you!
Napstablook:<I...usually come to the ruins because nobody's around...>
-He smiles a bit-
<But...today, I met someone nice...!>
-They end up talking for a while.-
