Lita: Nice to meet you three. And yeah I'm from an alternate future timeline. This universe's version of my Dad is...associated with the J-Team. I thought meeting your potential future kids was like the norm now?
Danielle meanwhile was offering a glass to Colton.
Danielle: Would you like to try our homemade fruit-vegetable cocktail? Your pokemon have taken a liking to it.

As though a weight was lifted off his shoulders, the moment Danielle offered Colton grabbed a cup and drank a little. He didn't seem to particularly enjoy or dislike it.
"I haven't met a future descendant of mine. Don't know if they just don't want to come, can't come or don't even exist," he explained. "Or, won't? I just can't even right now..."
Lita blinks then gives Colton a reassuring smile.
"It's ok. Not every universe has access to multiversal travel. I am sure they are out there somewhere. You might meet them in due time.
Danielle: Sooner if that "egg-man's" interdimensional nonsense keeps up.
Lita: Oh yeah. Meant to ask how that's going?
"Truth be told, I haven't been paying much attention, although apparently the Team's got a fair amount of intel on him courtesy of both a glitch named Kolemm and his ex," he recalled.
<That guy from the convention?> Sunny asked, to which her trainer nodded and handed her the drink.
Lita: That's good. -rests her hand on her katana- It's been months since I've been able to test my metal on something.
Danielle:...Somehow I know you said 'metal' and not 'mettle'. You're worse thann your father sometimes. Mr. 'chopped liver' and 'it's not rocket appliances'.
Lita: -cheeky grin- Need any extra hands?
"I suppose - when it comes time to take the fight straight to Multiman's face," he said, punching his open palm and letting dark wisps radiate out. "we'll need all the help we can get."
Lita makes an intrigued.
Lita: An Obscuric? Neat. What kinds of constructs can you do?
Danielle's Tangrowth walks up to Sunny.
Andre:<...Hi I'm Andre...>
<Sunny,> she said simply. <I'm already seeing someone,> she said preemptively.
"Constructs? I mean," he trailed off, removing the ribbon from his wrist before the hand it was around created a set of claws around his knuckles.
"I have my Armory," he started before he shook the claws away and channeled Obscura around himself to create his Zoroark fursuit before he snapped his claws and made it vanish. "My reserves," he added, smirking lightly before he held out one hand and summoned a Protect. "And the moves I can perform - my two forms have distinctly different combat styles; instincts are more powerful than you'd think."
Lita: That is so cool. You're like a DMC character. Except real! All I have is a sword and a bunch of bugmons.
Andre: <...that was not the direction I was going to go into, but ok. Nice to know. W-w-what do you like to do for fun?>

"Yeah, DMC's nice and all, but I kind of prefer to go the route of a [Dragon Ball] character," he said before he gestured to a patch of grass with a finger and then pointed upwards, creating an explosion of Obscura that didn't damage the ground below.
<I dunno,> Sunny said dismissively. <Have some tea, listen to music, chat with the rest of Colton's team, particularly Roy...> she trailed off.

Lita: That is...super cool!
Danielle: Please be careful where you throw that stuff around. We've only got this cart of stuff with us.
Lita:...you can't teach this stuff, can you?
Lita looks at Colton expectantly.
Andre: <Tea is good. Love tea. I asssume Roy is your boy?>
"It depends - do you know you have Obscuric potential, and do you have [$20]?" Colton asked, subconsciously putting the ribbon back around his wrist.
<Only I get to say that, but yes,> Sunny said.
Edited by AbsentCoder on Jun 4th 2019 at 5:02:55 AM
Lita looked to Danielle.
Danielle: You're not getting $20 from me.
Lita: And I do not have any latent talent, Obscuric or otherwise. Still can't teach me?
"Sorry, but unless you're Obscuric, Psychic, Auric or Spectric, you're S.O.L.," he shrugged.
"And I was asking for the money because I have a book in syndication - $20 is the asking price - cheaper than T Ms," he shrugged.
Lita:...why would I buy a book I couldn't use?
Danielle': You bought an English-Kalos dictionary that you refuse to use.
Lita: Hey that's different! I guess I could use it train my 'mons.
"You could use it to train your Pokemon - I had Minerva look over and try to learn from the book. With a little guidance from me, she has a lot of techniques," he bragged.
Minerva looked away in nervousness.
Lita: -sighs and starts counting whatever money she has on her- I thought we were trying to sell something...
Danielle: Are you a successful author?
Lita:-hands Colton the money- Alright I'll give it a read.
Colton silently refused the money. "I was actually thinking I could exchange a copy of the book for a couple cartons of that drink. Sunny seems to like it; maybe some other Pokemon of mine will," he considered.
Lita:-quickly puts her money away- Sure we can trade. Had no hope selling it anyways.
Lita hands him a case.
Danielle: Anyways, back to my question. Have you sold many copies?
"Enough to make a profit," the Unovan said succinctly. "Not certain about the specific numbers, but if I'm getting royalty checks instead of bills," he shrugged as Sunny levitated the cartons in a psychic grip.
She dragged Lita way for a bit.
Lita: What's the big idea!
Danielle: Keep it down. Listen, if we can get this guy hooked on our juice we can get mucho bucks.
Lita:...You are 44 years old and still using 'mucho'. Please reconsider your life choices.
Danielle: I'm serious here. This could be big.
The pair walk back over to Colton.
Lita: Take as much as you like and be sure to mention us on all of your social media platforms~
With the hand that had the ribbon around it, Colton restrained Sunny from reaching for a third bottle. "I can't abuse your hospitality - I already feel bad enough I'm not paying with actual cash, instead giving you something you don't really need."
An elegant young woman with a bob cut meets Silversmith as he arrives to the production floor.
Penelope: So glad you could make it, Mr. Silversmith. What name would you prefer? Anyway, make yourself feel comfortable. We do have a questionnaire for you to answer, which is simple, really, but it'll also help us figure out which of the available interviewers you'll be seeing first.
She shakes his hand.

After having previously wandered into Ersatz and losing any sort of nerve to do what they thought they were going to do, Halis is currently sleeping in their room which is very ornately decorated for something that didn't exist until a short while ago. The amount of soft surfaces in the room would make any sort of cleaning effort feel like climbing twenty mountains in a row, but if nothing else at the moment it seems to be more or less spotless, but as a result of the nature of the room, Halis ended up falling asleep on the floor.
Halis: "...No, but that wasn't me, I'm me, remember? We're two different people..."
They appear to be having a bad dream, however, tossing and turning a fair bit.
-Noelle has herself and all of her mons arranged in a circle-
Yuna: <I can already sense your troubled heart.>
-Noelle nods slowly-
Noelle: I know this doesn't really concern any of you but I really need someone to talk to about this.
Flora: <What is it, dearie?>
Noelle: It's my feelings about Fortis... I think I like her.
Caitsidhe: <I like Fortis too, she gives good pets~>
Aubade: <And Airy is so cute! I love the way she goes 'Hai~'>
Noelle: No, I mean I like her.
Jaune: <Well, she is pretty cheery and likable.>
Noelle: Argh! I mean I'm... I'm in love with her! Okay? I'm having such a crush and I don't know what to do!
Caitsidhe: <Oh, well what's the problem?>
Yuna: <You want to be with her, but something's stopping you, right?>
Noelle: Yes! She's too young!
Carbuncle: <This... should... not... matter. ...How... much... time... has... passed... makes... little... difference.>
Noelle: But it does matter! I know she's never been in a relationship before and I don't want to take advantage of her! I don't want to be some sort of stalker like I was back when I tried to force Mezzily together...
-Noelle sighs deeply-
Noelle: But here I am, falling for her all the same. I guess that creepy fanboy and me aren't that different, huh?
Yuna: <Hardly. I can tell you genuinely care for her.>
Noelle: I do, and that's why I'm so scared.
Aubade: <Scared of what?>
Noelle: That I'll hurt her and ruin our friendship because I'm a stupid gay who can't keep it in her pants.
Erospite: <You don't wear pants.>
Noelle: It's a metaphor.
-Noelle sighs again-
Noelle: But what do I do?
Mimicutie: <Kill her.>
Noelle: What? No!
Mimicutie: <It removes your feelings and erases one more disgusting human life from the world. Simplest solution.>
Erospite: <Okay, you have issues.>
Flora: <Maybe you should tell her how you feel.>
Noelle: But if I do that, I don't know what she'd do... and I don't want to burden her with this, knowing we can't be together.
-Noelle shakes her head-
Noelle: Why am I such a mess?
Yuna: <I fear you're just being too harsh on yourself. Your feelings are what they are. Whether you act on them is up to you.>
-Noelle hugs Yuna-
Noelle: Maybe you're right, Yunie. Maybe I'm overthinking things too much.
