-Ian continues to focus on Piku-chan-
Piku-chan: <You can do it, buddy... I believe in you... You could summon a Psyshock spark as easily as I could charge up a Thunderbolt. You can do this...>
-I take Piku-chan's word and concentrate as I did when I tried to use Psyshock-
-Suddenly, Piku-chan starts to rise into the air, albeit slowly-
Piku-chan: <Whoaoaoaoaoa... Hahaha... Look at you, Ian... You're doing it...>
Me: I did it? I DID IT! WOOHOO!!!
-I punch the air in celebration, forgetting to put Piku-chan back down-
Piku-chan and I: <Uh oh...
Piku-chan: -gets thrown into the air- <AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA...
Silas is reading over what notes he does have on personas, Hacks and Snakeye beside him, <Partner what do you expect to get from all this?>
"Knowledge Snakeye, knowledge of how the hell that other place works."
<You keep us secured there, couldn' help much.>
~Plus didn't you want to work on hiding this ship?~
<Oh yeah the stealth drive stuff.>
Silas grumbled, "I've looked into it, best we have is ECM, the rest is a little harder to do... such as making this thing invisible."
<What about that optic camo stuff?>
"Looked into it, doesn't work as well on larger scales. May need to consult with other J-Engineers into-"
The ship shook and Silas looked over at the terminal, a buzzing came from it and soon enough, a voice, "FIND ME."
Displayed there was a set of coordinates, which lead to outskirts in Orre, Silas stared at it... it screamed trouble.
Suit up, we got a mission, something got into my systems and has a location in Orre. Will do research and then debrief.
A old factory complex shudders and groans, off in the distance kids in town stare at it, and go running home to report, somebody will need to investigate.
I told you to not to torrent PC games.
on our way

Joy. Deserts. I will be there forthwith.

-Following Alice's recovery, the bunch of nerds that is her Faction have decided to celebrate in the best way a bunch of nerds know how.-
Val: Okay, so Lissa, your investigator loses 12 SAN points and-
Lissa: Wait, what? 12 SAN points? All I did was open a book!
Val: Yeah, because it was the Necronomicon!
Lissa: Oh, c'mon! Every single character in the Mythos read that shit and they all turned out okay!
Val: ...Okay, first off, no they did not turn out okay, and secondly-
Seth: I punch the dimensional shambler.
-Val blinks at Seth.-
Val: Really? You're going to punch the shambler? The creature that you have no way of knowing the name or nature of, the creature whose very existence defies everything you know about the laws of the universe, the creature that appears to be neither corporeal nor tangible?
Val: ...Okay then. Roll a-
-Just then, Alice's phone beeps, and she looks down to read Jackal's message.-
Alice: ...My apologies. Duty calls.
-She gets up and walks away, leaving the rest of the players glancing confusedly at each other.-
Seth: ...I got a 39. Does that-
Val: No. Azathoth devours all of you. We'll pick this up next session.
-An indeterminate amount of time after Jackal's text was sent, he may become aware of the familiar sound of heels clacking against his ship's deck.-
Gaia: I'm not too late to comment on the vulnerabilities in your security systems, am I?
Be there soon.

A boy wearing a striped shirt ran up and tugged on a man's black duster.
"What is it, kid?"
"Somethings happening at the old factory. Scary noises..."
The man furrowed his brow and looked in the direction of the near dilapidated facility.
Moments later he had rode out to a few kilometres outside the factory and surveyed the factory's exterior using a pair of binoculars.
"...It's probably just some smugglers. Guess I'll have to deal with that to, huh?"
Dissatisfied with the current events he rode back to town to get some gear.
I'm in. But after, I think I'll be stepping away from the business for a bit. Publicity's risky, and as much as I love stealing the spotlight, I'll need to lay low for a while.
-Out of the shadows, the fanbase's favorite antihero emerges.-
-Meanwhile, a slip of paper landsin front of Silas's notes, as if blown by the wind.-

Priscilla picks up her phone and there was a ring. Nay, two rings. The first is a phone.
Priscilla: Murphy, book me the next flight out to Orre.
Murphy: You've got it, chief. Shall we use the company frequent flyer miles?
Priscilla: On the way back, maybe, depends on whether this is Pokefutures again.
Murphy: Gotcha. I've informed Lily and Debra that they're in charge until you're back since you've been given another "inspection lead".
Priscilla: That's a good digital monster.
Murphy: Also, you've got an incoming call from your new assistant.
Priscilla: Put 'im in.
Beck: Ms. Kwan. I've secured that jewel your requested. I had to battle a vibrava on the way out of Hoenn but I'm back at the Stormchaser. What do I do with the blue diamond? Is it anomalous?
Priscilla: Yeah, just tell the storage staff to put it in a safety deposit box made of lead.
She concludes the call.
Murphy: What even is in that rock?
Priscilla: I'll tell you later.
Murphy: Also, should we tell Mr. Grant about the flaws in his security system? I mean, it's weird that Bishop couldn't have taken care of that. They should've gotten that fixed. And now I'm starting to worry. What if porys can't stop it?
Priscilla: I know right. What will happen to our systems?
To: Aurabolt Mailing List
From: Taipan and Murphy
Count us in. We're on our way.

-Piku-chan is still going higher into the sky-
-You'd think someone saw that...-
Miley: Daddy, look! A shooting star!
Jeff: Honey, shooting stars go down, not up. Oh. Daddy's just gonna make a phone call honey. That might be an emergency flare.
Me: -scaredly- I hope no one saw that...
-Piku-chan stops rising into the sky...-
-...only for gravity to kick in-
Ian is suddenly greeted by a cadre of police officers from both Accumula Town's police department and the criminology convention from earlier.
Officer Jenny: Excuse me young man, but we saw what appeared to be a signal flare rising from the sky. What's the emergency?
Me: -looks up at the sky-
-looks into Officer Jenny's eyes-
To be totally honest, it wasn't a signal flare I sent into the air... It was my Pikachu...
I accidentally launched my Pikachu into the air while I was training my psychic abilities and...
-crying mentally- They noticed...
...he hasn't come down yet...

Officer Jenny: Well, you're in luck, because we happened to have a few ways of dealing with this. Bring out the museum piece.
Cop: Did he just say he was psychic?
Psychic Cop, with an Abra on his shoulders: Yeah, so? Cut him some slack. We don't have a lot of training options. It happens.
A cadre of firefighters bring in a life net, something that hasn't been seen in Unova since the 1980s.
Cop: Didn't they discontinue these?
Officer Jenny: Desperate times call for desperate measures, sergeant. Not unless someone has a flying type we can borrow that isn't a skarmory.

-Piku-chan is still falling-
Me: Wait... What happened the last time you borrowed a Skarmory?
Officer Jenny: Skarmories are a hazard with their metallic plumage. Thank goodness we had them tested on falling watermelons. Most of the other cops are worried about the life net. The high potential for injury for humans led it to be discontinued in the 80s. We decided to risk it because the pikachu should be small enough to dodge most of the major injuries.

Me: Makes sense.
-Piku-chan continues to fall-
-Suddenly, Piku-chan's screaming can be heard faintly-
Me: Do you hear that?
Officer Jenny: Firefighters, hold your positions!
The firefighters hold still, positioned around the general area that the plummeting pikachu was expected to land.
-Piku-chan falls out of a clear blue sky-
-Piku-chan lands on the life net, bounces off and stops in midair to blast me with Thunderbolt-
-I reel from the Thunderbolt attack and land on my butt-
Officer Jenny: Medic!
A few officers trained in first aid approach Ian, while a few other cops approach Piku-Chan with rubber gloves, being very careful not to seem threatening.
-I raise my thumb to the sky-
Me: I'm okay... This happens often...
-Red eyes shine in the darkness and then suddenly all at once Nightingale is here-
-But also she promptly trips over because it's been a while since she's worn the boots-
Halis is looking outside through one of the windows, though the window they've chosen to look through was a bit too high up, so they're standing on a chair at the moment.
Halis: "...Hmm. I swear I've seen that design somewhere before. It's gaudy..."
They're apparently judging people's fashion choices from the safety of an airship. Why they're doing this is beyond comprehension.
-Piku-chan backs up semi-nervously-
Piku-chan: <W-wait a minute... I-I didn't mean to shock Ian... I-It was an accident.>
