-the shackle catches Lakitu right on the neck, and he and Fortis are pulled to a halt-
Lakitu: <Ow!> -squawks-
Mezzo: Thank Arceus, someone caught her before she went through.
Robin: Around the J-Team? More often than you might think.
Gabe: ...My name is Gabriel Higgins and the bad guys broke the multiverse?
Reina: I was the last one. -tosses the armband back to Diane- Besides, we've got bigger issues to take care of.
Sora: Damn party-ruining spacetime anomalies.
Gudrunn: Now's not the time Kanny, you heard what Reina said.
Having seen them fly off but unable to do anything because no 'mons he had could reach that high, Colton was incredibly grateful for whoever fired that Spirit Shackle. Now they'd have no choice but to descend. He looked in the direction of where the arrow came from, and saw that telltale badge on the Decidueye.
He reached into his jacket and pulled out the flier he dropped a good while ago. "Is this yours?" He hollered to the Arrow Quill Pokemon.
Phoenix:Yeah, I can see that, but how? Why? And will this have any effect on my family *cough* or vacation *cough*.
-Once he finishes up breakfast he continues to ignore the pen as he preps for the day and does some gaming. He has yet to check the news or his phone-
Diane: Oh, good. Glad that wasn't an issue, then.
Skye: Next time please don't run off snickering suspiciously.
Kan'al'colel: ~Of course now's not the time! I said "otherwise"!~
-Hollow sighs in relief, and pulls the two back to the ground-
Hollow: <Terribly sorry about that, but now is not the time for a fight-or-flight response. Or, erm, flight-into-fight, as the case may be. Are you two okay?>

Lakitu: <That really hurt.>
Fortis: Uh huh, but why'd you stop us? Don't you want to see what's on the other side?
Sora: -pouts- Fiiiiine.
Gudrunn: Well make that double an excuse not to try it!
Gabe: I don't know, I don't know, depends on if your family goes near any rifts or anything, and you can probably ask off for something like this.
Not much you can do besides that really except keeping an eye on those Sol and Ton characters and keeping an eye out for any rifts that'll likely appear as a result of this.
-He pulls out his phone and sends a text to his mother-
Phoenix's Text:hey so if you see a crazy colorful impossible hole in the middle of the air don't let greg anywhere near it he'll probably die
-Satisfied, he turns back to Gabe.-
Phoenix:So, bring me up to speed on the side effects of this whole problem.

Kan'al'colel: ~Like I could do anything in this state anyway. Finger-wiggling and indigestion aren't exactly a powerful amount of control over my host.~
Hollow: <Apologies, I did not intend to hurt you, and I hope I can make it up to you. I would be more than happy to go on a daring, heroic adventure across time and space, but we must prepare for these things first! Otherwise you may end up in mortal peril at the claws of some horrible lizard monster or something.>
-He hears and sees Colton, and beams-
Hollow: <Ah, yes, I remember you! I'm glad to see the Bronze Birds have made a mark in your memory!>
-Duolis nods, then shifts into an Aegislash and vanishes-
Gabe: Uh, lessee... Rifts... Portals... Locations taking on qualities of other universes... People, Pokemon, and Pokemonized versions of other things coming in through those... All the the things you like to read, watch and play coming to life from multiversal incursion, but not in a good way... That should be about it.
-Guddrun tauntingly wiggles her ring finger in the direction of the desserts-

...you know what? Let's focus on fixing it. You and me. Let's beat the bad dudes and put the multiverse back together. And if you get distracted again I'm going to personally shove you headfirst into a rift to Hell.

-You'll have to handle me sometime. I know you wanna learn how to make the things I can make... I can do many things for you. Some of them are most certainly what you are imagining.-
-After relaxing himself sufficiently he switches off his gaming and stares at the pen-
Alright, I am prepared. Want some tea before we start this?
Colton bit his tongue and fiddled with the fake hand grenade on his belt loop. "Greatly sorry to ruin your mood, but it's not you that I recall the most. It's the easily overlooked mention of who I'm guessing is your leader: The Auric Avenger.
"It's especially intriguing to someone like me - recently made aware of his Obscuric potential. I have Sucker Punch and Foul Play down, but that's about it." He explained. "I'm really curious as to who he is; there were only about 15 different pages on the internet with the full phrase on it." He concluded.
PEFE!Every: I'm bored.
Ever: You should have thought of that before you got horribly injured.
PEFE!Every: How was I supposed to...avoid that?
Ever: Run faster?
PEFE!Every: Not really my thing.
Ever: Can't help you then.
PEFE!Every: I know you have a Chimecho. His Heal Pulse would be stronger... than the Floral Healing they've got here.
Ever: I dunno. The Pokemon the nurses use are always pretty experienced, and Breeze's Heal Pulses have had...mixed receptions.
PEFE!Every: I will not just sit around here...while everything goes to hell. If you won't help, at least get me...my computer.
Ever: Where's that?
PEFE!Every: Mobius airship.
Ever: So definitely not then.
Ever: Chill out. You'll probably be fine by tomorrow.
PEFE!Every: That's so much time.
Ever: Were you always this easily agitated?
-I can't drink. But sure. I can even answer some questions if you like. I heard a lot as a pen.-
-Pent nods and goes to make some tea. There isn't any specifically teacups in the Center public kitchen so he just uses some coffee cups instead. Well, a cup for the pen, Pent feels like he needs a full on mug of tea. After making those beverages he plods back over and sits down-
Alright, so what sorta things do you believe yourself capable of making?
Fortis: Okay! But how do we prepare for an adventure across time and space?
Mezzo: By not going?
Phaz is here.
Like, two acetylsalycilic tubs in tea smashed.
Also for some reason he's not with a shirt.
Not that he minds apparently.
Aaron is enjoying his pumpkin spice latte, while Amélie is strolling through the pages.
Gabe: -gulps- Duly noted; we should probably start by working with the J-Team. They have experience with this kinda stuff.
"But yeah," Colton continued. "Do you want your flier back? I, um... don't have any flying-types on my team, nor do I plan to catch one anytime soon." He admitted.
He set the flier on the ground as he then entered back inside, recalling that they had a [Switch]. Maybe they also had [Pokken], that was always fun. Then he saw Pent with the pen.
"Oh, hey!" He chimed, setting himself beside Pent. "How's the pen been treating you?
"Also, do you think you could bother to teach me how to create illusions?" He suffixed. "Physical moves are great and all, but I think I want to start channeling fully."
-Hollow droops a bit at what Colton says-
Hollow: <O-oh, my apologies, the poster may be a bit hard to read. Chickenscratch is a very difficult language for non-avian individuals to read, see. Anyway, ahem, the part on the poster you noticed says that the superhero known as the Auric Avenger served as the Bronze Birds' inspiration, not that he was affiliated with us. Unfortunately, he was killed in action several years ago, and his successor seems to have dropped the "Auric" part of the mantle. Our leaders, meanwhile, is someone who goes by Icarus — with the hopes to have a much less, ahem, tragic story than their namesake.>
-He clears his throat, and turns back to Fortis-
Hollow: <Anyway, ma'am, I'm afraid the problem is we don't quite have a full idea how we need to prepare yet. Understanding the source behind these rifts should be your first step, if possible!>
Having been able to hear the conversation, Colton quickly dashed back to provide the info he gathered.
"Oh, yeah, Unova's Entralink has gone haywire, and the Ultra Wormholes might also be involved." He quickly explained before returning to Pent.
