Mezzo: That sounds like a great idea.
-The essence of a trumpet fanfare is replaced by the essence of a record scratch.-
VW: <...Would that... happen to be the Silly Pidgey?>
-A drip of oil appears in a similar manner to a sweatdrop.-
DU-32: ...Pardon again, I suppose I wasn't clear. The Bronze Birds are just that — birds. We... don't take recruits who aren't birds. I'm sure your gifts would absolutely be effective elsewhere, but as a symbol of justice, we have a theme, and that theme is... birds.
Echo: Oh dear. Do tell.
-She pets Mew again, and nods to Colton in acknowledgement.-

Stuffing the note in his jacket with one hand, Colton halfheartedly waved to them as he joined their little group. "I'll wait," he chimed, just letting his lungs fill with cold mountain air as he relaxed. He reached for Mew but didn't touch them yet, unsure if they'd be fine with it.
Oran OS: Well, ah, um... What do humans do when they're interested in each other again, and how do you adapt that to being a device-bound AI? Sorry, you were the only person I could ask this particular instance...
Mew: ~Well, we're going to hide things in plain sight, like a Zoroark, so: Team Illusion!~
-she waves to Colton-
Child X: <Silly Pidgey!>
The Silly Pidgey: -flaps against the glass walls-
Bomb Disposal Snorlax: <Oh dear. I was going to have all the Chocolate Bombes I could ever want...>
...and I STILL WILL!
Snorlax used Belly Drum! Snorlax cut his own HP and maximized his Attack!

"Hiding what in plain sight?" Colton asked, furthering his question by resting his free hand on the ground and recreating the texture and color on the back of it. "And that name seems a little too straightforward. What about Team Daze? I mean, it's also inspired by Zoroark, but their signature move: Night Daze," he explained, stroking the little psychic mythical behind her ears.

-Ever goes outside to watch the apocalypse with Mezzo-
Ever: Is it weird that this is, like, our third apocalypse?
-PEFE!Every stares in shock-
Maybe this is a bad dream. I'll wake up, and I'll be back in that facility, with Carna harvesting me for organs.
...Or maybe I did die there, and this is hell.
Cytosol: <Unfortunately, you are both alive and awake.>
PEFE!Every: ...I'll confess, this is not an area in which I have much experience. To my understanding, you invite the other party to an activity which you believe you will both find enjoyable. For instance, I met a boy in the Orange Islands several years ago, and he said he liked marine life, so I asked him to come with me to collect venom from a Tentacruel.
Cytosol: <Oh, did you two ever have a second date?>
PEFE!Every: Erm, no. He thought I was kidding.
-she's silent for a bit-
Do you think he'd have called me back if he hadn't ended up in the emergency ward?
PEFE!Every: ...Well, I suppose I can do better than someone who doesn't bring protective gear to study Tentacruel.
-she turns back to Oran OS-
PEFE!Every: ...I suggest you not follow my example in your pursuit of Alonya.
Estoc: <Well, crap.>
Narrow: <As expected. They always flip out.>
-Narrow takes to the skies, dropping an Air Slash on the Snorlax. Estoc sighs, and uses Bubblebeam-

Mezzo: I don't even keep track anymore. All I know is I had to stop Fortis from literally leaping into the thing earlier today. That girl's gonna get herself killed.
Echo: -to Colton- What we are hiding is anything from another universe that doesn't exactly match the nature of our own when it comes here. Like the Mist does.
Echo: Now, Mew, you know the reputation the word "team" has as a prefix. We should take a different direction for the name of this little project. How does "The Illusion Project" sound to you?
VW: <The fiend!>
-She turns around-
VW: <Child X, anyone who has watched a superhero show knows that the hero must use xer special move to save the day! Are you or your family capable of using Power Swap?>

Listening to Mew lean into his gestures, Colton actually felt a little tranquil. He placed a pair of headphones into his ears and started singing a little ditty.
Inappropriate though it may have been, but Colton thought it was given all those tears in reality.
But to their credit, they were kind of like auroras or atomic explosions. Ya knew how they occur, you know how violent they are, but you can't help but sit back and just watch.
While singing the song, he got the paper out and started writing down ideas.
He left the bullet point blank until he came up with something better later.
-Kofun goes for a Grass Knot-
Oran OS: ...Okaaaaay, you are clearly an example of what not to do. Got it. Any advice on her not finding out too soon, since that would be as bad as someone finding that flash drive, or worse, pawning it off to someone with evil inte- ack, pretend I didn't say that.

Mew: ~Even better! And we can get the uniforms from The Jean-ome Project~
Son X: -steps forward- <Of course I am.>
Son X used Power Swap!
Bomb Disposal Snorlax: <What- my Attack boost! Hey, give that back!>
-He winces, as a Grass Knot, Air Slash, and Bubblebeam reduce him to the low yellow, the Serious Pidgeot's additional Air Slash reducing him to the red-
Bomb Disposal Snorlax: <NO!>
-he charges at Narrow with High Horsepower-
Knowing that he was beaten out 2-1 with his name ideas, Colton jammed the paper into his pocket, never to be seen again until it was properly disposed or his jacket was washed. "So what is it we're exactly hiding?" He asked, going straight for cuddling the Mew in full while turning his music off.
"Like, glitches? UBs? What?"
Ever: Uh, yikes. I mean, she's a surprisingly capable trainer...
...And to be fair we were her age when we were busy saving the world...
...I mean, I'm on your side, but when did that happen?
Narrow: <And when they flip out, they make mistakes.>
-they climb a little, flitting out of the way of the High Horsepower-
-and leaving Estoc in its path-
Estoc: <...Oh dear.>
-he uses Bite, in an attempt to stave off the attack-
-Narrow, meanwhile, twirls in the air, feathers descending on the Snorlax-
PEFE!Every: I suggest not saying anything about it. That's easy, right?
Also, I stole the flash drive from the compound where it was hidden and gave it to Izaya.
Echo: Indeed. This sounds like an excellent little plan for our goals to transform everything into something relatively homogeneous for us to take care of.
-She idly takes a sip from a glass full of an innocuous orange-flavored drink that may or may not have been there moments before.-
Echo: Anyway, we're mostly protecting from glitches, since that's what most incompatible entities transform into when they cross over.
VW: <Excellent! Snorlax, your age of villainy is over!>
-She attacks the Snorlax with a Fury Attack-

Colton's stroking of Mew was brought to a grinding halt. "That sounds a little [Orwellian], no?" He asked.
"But if it's glitches you want to address, I know one close by." He said.

Kofun: -Psychics to slow the Snorlax down-
Oran OS: ...
-Plays this exact soundfile rather loudly-
Mezzo: Search me.
Echo: Don't worry, I'm just poking fun at my former self for making terrible decisions under the influence of depression and a severe power high. We're just dealing with the glitches. What one in particular did you have that needed to be dealt with?
"Not exactly dealt with, just... acknowledged." He admitted. "There's a dude in the Center with a pen that contains a sentient glitch only visible when it's held. He's described that he doesn't want anyone without Obscuric potential touching it. So I ask that you trust me with handling the pen, but you guys can figure out what to do from there," He explained, firing off a Dark Pulse fireball to prove his powaz.
Ever: ..Time flies.
-he curls up against Mezzo and stares into the infinite void-
Ever: ...I wonder if we can make new constellations.
PEFE!Every: Well, you know how Izaya's a conniving, manipulative prick with an unseasonable parka? He blackmailed me into stealing it. So I did, because I'm good at what I do.
Why, is there something important on it?
-Mezzo cuddles up next to Ever-
Mezzo: Probably. I feel like I could get lost in that forever.
-Mew swipes the list of names with her tail to recycle for naming clothing lines-
-Snorlax is Bit, Danced, Psychiced, and Furied, finally collapsing into a buffet table-
Son X: <Now... with this power... it is time to end this charade.>
-he points at the Serious Pidgeot and Silly Pidgey menacingly-
<AND MY RIVALS BAKING CAREERS!>
Son X: <What- my Attack boost! Hey, give that back!>
Child X: <I love the Silly Pidgey! You won't hurt her!>
Son X: <...seriously. No you-were-scheming-all-along-to-setup-her-family's-total-destruction?>
Child X: <BLUGH, NO!>
Child X: <What- my Attack boost! Hey, give that back!>
Serious Pidgeot: <HA! Now it is I who will end my rivals' baking careers!>
Silly Pidgey: <DAD.>
Serious Pidgeot: <What- my Attack boost! Hey, give that back!>
Echo: Mew, please give that back to him. Anyway, this seems like a good plan to me, if you can bring it.
-VW watches the sequence of Power Swaps, and sighs in relief as the final holder of the power ends up being the Silly Pidgey.-
VW: <Phew, glad that's over with. Now, do you think you can use that power boost to break free from the glass?>
-Unbeknownst to her, she has started glowing.-
