-Jessica joins the applause.-
Shaun: "Gods, I fucking hate people like you. Why do you think so many evil teams have fallen by our hands? You fucking numbskulls never learn."
"You think we're scared of a fucking Glitch? Count how many we've killed. 'M, Missingno., Jester, the Beast, the Shards?"
-Luca mutters a supportive "Yeah!" somewhere in the back.-
Shaun: "Your plans will always crumble, your allies will always fail, and your freedom will always be lost."
"Because that's the way of the world. Fuck. You."
-Shaun fires his Spirit Shackle into Izaya's foot.-
Gabrielle: "I took a vow to never kill, but-"
-She slams her foot into Izaya's stomach, heel and all.-
Kaiiseii: "We'll end your evil scheme with the power of friendship!"
"And this gun I found!"
-Luca quietly takes the gun and hands it back to his soldier.-
-Lila and Tutti are still stuck under an electroweb.-
Lila: Nice one, let's try that again!
-Tutti fires another leaf tornado.-
-Hazel and Clarent keep firing ghost type attacks at Jonathan.-
-Kat has her phone out and has been filming for the past few minutes. Cady is applauding along with Saffy and Sapphy.-
Kat: I'll forward this to you guys later!

-Mothra jumps into the path of the Confuse Ray, taking it for Oshawittle-
Oshawittle: <Mothra... you...>
Mothra: <I-I'm fine... I can handle myself... I think...>
-Mothra's horns glow slightly brighter and she tries to tie Jonathan down with String Shot...-
-...only for the String Shot to appear a crimson red?!-
Me: Wh-What's going on?
-Ian glows a bright pink as his power is magnified-
Me: Whoa... cool!
Oshawittle: <Alright, Izaya...>
Piku-chan: <You've had your fun...>
Me: Now, let's play a new game... This time...
The J-Team gets to win!
Goosey the Zangoose dodges an attack by Lucy the Seviper's tail, grabbing it, swinging Seviper several times, and hurling her into some unwitting Interpol agents trying to get away.
Lucy recovers quickly and spits a huge glob of Acid at Goosey. The Zangoose sidesteps it and it lands onto a section of the deck, which begins to melt. As he does, Lucy attempts to attack with Crunch, biting the tail of a Pokemon in the wrong place at the wrong time.
As all this happens, Gyari circles the boat, firing Dragon Rages at anyone foolish enough to point something dangerous at him.
Gobo, to Fuka: You might want to direct the Gyarados away from the evacuating personnel. We're not murderers.
Interpol officer: Says you, trait— (sideswiped by a Zangoose).
Gobo: And send these fellas upstairs. They're evacuating the boat now.
Meanwhile, in the control room, a Holonas Private enters the weapons system, giving a salute to Lieutenant Cross while doing so.
The bridge officer sends out a message to the Cumberbatch using the flag semaphore system, informing them of the evacuation order.
He then turns around and proceeds to change the flags of the ship.
Ian's and Hazel's pokémon succeed in incapacitating Jonathan, whose human appearance glitches out and disappears. His dex flops down the hill. Darlene the Magnezone retreats, following her partner.
Goober: Good show. Now let's go forward.
While the Alolan raticate in Alrune's coils continued to be barraged by sharp pointy tropius leaves, the web binding Tutti and Lila finally tears.
Ezra: Okay, one of the things in the bag you ladies carried with you is an EMP. Now is the time to use it.
Dave: Oh shit.
And finally, the mysterious eyes and maw reveals themselves to be a Coalossal. The gargantuan pokémon moves forward.
Bill: Oh god dammit.
Santa's Coalossal: <Saying Arceus' name in vain? Naughty!>

We endured against an unkillable swarm of darkness, we destroyed both the base and it's huge weapons, we have put the mastermind in a circle and are taking turns literally kicking him when he's down. We have won, and if the universe thinks that's not good enough then I'm sorry but the power rushing through my veins right now says otherwise.
-To demonstrate he flares up with obscuric fire some more-
I am willing and capable of punching 'the expectations of narrative' in the face.
Anthem: <Okay cool, my previous statement stands; Nav what the frig is this thing?>
-The Snom, as adorably as usual, attempts to slowly abrade the cookie into Snom-edible flecks-
Susan: Oh yeah, the EMP!
-She reaches into her bag and retrieves a chonky device-
Susan: Ahem, EMP activated, boop!
-She tries to activate the device as Alrune is actually successfully spooked and slithers back to Susan's side-
Sylvan: <Oh you are useless.>
-The bow-owl sighs and leaps into the fray, attempting to Leaf Blade the Greninja-
Me: We did it!
Oshawittle and Piku-chan: -jumping up and down- <We did it! We did it!>
Mothra: -snapping out of her confusion- <We did it? What did we do?>
Me: -to Hazel- By the way... My name is Ian, and these are my friends...
Oshawittle and Yuki...
What's your name?
"Oh," Ammy says simply, tearing off chunks and crumbs of the cookie for Snom to eat.
A Pokeball opens, and Sylveon appears, looking at Izaya.
<... You guys want me to heal him so he's conscious throughout the entire beatdown?> She asked as Colton approached, knelt down, and slammed an Assurance Palm into Izaya's back.
I had power rushing through my veins when Lucius, Ammy, and I killed Yami, but then suddenly Penumbra.
-To the others-
Okay we can lay off of him now, he can't face justice if he's dead. Though if he did die I'll admit I wouldn't be shedding that many tears.
-Sits around in my office, a clay Mudkip sitting prominently on one of the shelves-
Hound: -in a severe panic- <Blast it! Blast it! Blast it! KILL IT WITH ELECTRICITY!>
-Raijuu stays silent at the constant stream of mental and vocal commands caused by his contractor's severe agitation and fires off a Charge-boosted Charge Beam as Mona answers Anthem.-
Mona: I have a Name. It's Tom Fool.
Fuka: Don't worry, Gyari won't attack anyone who's not directly threatening him or me, and Lucy and Goosey are more focused on each other. (Fuka stops and considers) Still, just in case. (leans out the porthole) Gyari! Let anyone who gets off the boat get to shore!
outside, Gyari huffs
Gyari: <Got it!>
Lita whipped her scabbard around and took out two more grunts.
"Clean up on this level, then move up a floor."
Megan: -pointing a finger- —and it was me that sent that info broker after you!
Logan: -stare- ...uh.
Thespi: -openly giggles at the tropes being discussed-
Tripod: -swats her-
-they ready their blades, with the characters and notes swirling down their lengths-
-the letters floating around continue their slow throb-
-Unown's properties are nebulous and strange; the circumstances under which they appear often appear as odd boundary conditions—on the edge of reality as it is written, they've appeared as anything-
-for instance, these Unown seem to be growing and shrinking in size-
-one after the other, once and never again-
Abilene: What's going on?
Hiro: The J-Team's celebrating by punching some guy in the face.
Abilene: Who is this man?
Hiro: I have no idea.
-something large bursts through a wall, headed for open sky-
(-it's not the other shoe dropping-)
-you can't even hear it from here-
-glancing up- <Sane, sate, seer, seen, seat, sear—>
Addie: <...and that's who he is.>
Abilene: Oh shit.
Pippy: -hugging himself- <Awful at parties.>
Pollen: -stares, blankly, at...-
-the world is so bright as to be blinding-
As fireworks go off in a nearby town, Halis sits near a cliff, watching and thinking.
Halis: "...An entire year, now. That's such a long time, even if people don't realize it. 365 days, all of which can be different from one-another."
A memory comes back to them... they remember the first time they went on an adventure with Lucius. All the things they learned, their first time changing forms and fighting.
Halis: "That was a good experience for us both, but..."
Then they remember how they just as swiftly left him behind a few months later.
Halis: "D-did I... really do that? Was that really me?"
The hesitation in their voice grows as they remember the details further. How they cast aside their prior emotions so hastily and carelessly, completely unlike how they usually act... They start crying a bit. The thought of having acted like that upsets them greatly.
Halis: "...I d-didn't mean to... I..."
Asterios steps over and lays down next to them before they can say any more.
Asterios: <It's fine... he knows.>
Halis is surprised by his sudden appearance, since they specifically came here alone.
Halis: "Asterios... y-you really think so?"
Asterios: <Yes. Takes one to... know one?>
Halis just looks at him quietly for a bit before hugging him, remembering the time they first met. At this point, it seemed almost more like a dream of some kind than reality.
Halis: "You're right... I'll— we'll be fine. Thank you."
He just gives a contented look, having said what he needed to. The fireworks reach their peak, as the two turn and watch the finale of the show, to inaugurate the new year.
The sandslash moved to attack the decidueye, aiming to hit the goth bird with an ice shard. The greninja narrowly dodged Sylvan's attacks and retaliated with water shurikens. Actually, no, he got hit by a leaf blade in the side. It really hurt. The frog fell down.
The EMP incapacitated many of the soldiers. Way too many of them were cyborgs.
Bill was all that remained remained standing, defiant, and probably stepping on Giuseppi's still-organic toes. Behind him was an entire cavity full of cages, many of which held Santa's other Pokémon. Krampus grabbed him by the throat and flung him across the room to a conveniently pile of Santa's gym laundry, which he should have gotten around to washing about a month ago.
The coalossal peered out and fired at some of the remaining IDPD and Interpol soldiers guarding the cages. They and the dark types they brought with them fled in terror.
Santa's Coalossal: <Free my friends, young heroes. We'll take care of everything else.>
Goober: I'm afraid we're not done yet. By the looks of things, we've only just begun to—
Goober's phone rings. It's Ezra.
Goober: Oh, hey, it's go time. Wanna run Leeroy-Jenkins style into a cadre of confused soldiers to lull them into a false sense of security?
Goober: Kidding. Slight change of plans. We use these holograms to imitate Interpol soldiers.
He hands Hazel and Ian a hologram belt each
The second deck the group begins to assault had fewer soldiers—not counting the ones who were running away and heading for the lifeboats to the Cumberbatch.
Gobo: The ship's ours, fellas. Gobo is under Animeboyianpower's control from this point on.
Captain Macraul: I value the lives of my crew, Deputy Director. With Due Respect, you are going to respect my command of my ship and bring order to it my way.
Deputy Director Panelo: Bah, at this rate you and your crew would've failed to stop Team Signal's interference. I am relieving you of duty.
Bridge officer: Captain, we're receiving word that the flag atop our ship is now that of Team Sig—
Another bridge officer points a gun at her face. The same situation seems to repeat with several other officers, including Panelo and Macraul. From behind them, Tommy Jr.'s whimpering "oh hey" is heard. Apparently, he's also at gun point from Panelo's aide, who apologizes.
Mutineer: You can't stop the signal, deputy director.

Ever: (sobbing into their hands) they're doing the telling-off
i should be there for that
i want to see what happens when he has no more options
i want to see him desperate
Brie: Yeah, this is becoming weird.
Brie: Not to mention cramped.
Stivanna: there are only ten other elbows in this hole how are there eleven in my ribs
Ever: Oh, I'm digging my heel into your ribcage because of that time you assisted in trying to kill Tapu Bulu.
Stivanna: ... -sigh-
-PEFE!Every just cackles a little from off in the corner-
Ever: ...Yeah. I thought that might be true.
-they take a sip of their cocoa, wincing slightly-
Whatever happened to you, and to Megan, and...those other two people she mentioned. It doesn't sound like it was the most positive of experiences. And I'm sorry it happened to you. You seemed cool that one time, and you deserved better than being trapped in an alternate universe for a year.
A low bar, to be sure, but I think the point stands.
You don't need to pretend to be okay. Whether because it's Christmas, or because you don't want to impose, or...I mean, I'll admit I don't know you especially well. There are plenty of reasons to put on a mask for a little while.
But...J-team. We're not about masks here. Except for when we are! This is a place to find support. Even if you're used to being the one to extend it.
If one pays attention to her eyes, one can clearly make out Daydre's thought process as they crinkle in slight amusement, squint in confusion when Vee pulls the lollipop out of Megan's mouth, drift from Vee pointing to the Plant up above, and widen significantly in panic as it dawns on her what exactly is going on.
She mouths "me" at Vee and points to herself.
Daydre smiles and slowly closes the door.
The sound of various things being tossed around can be heard. Also, cymbals? Which is weird because it didn't even look like there were any in th
Daydre, considering herself dressed enough, opens the door once again and steps out.
While she has her own grudges, Daydre doesn't feel it's her place to- oh who am I kidding she runs over and kicks him in the ribs.
Azure: <You know, as funny as this is should we be like, encouraging this?>
Rowan: <Eh, if she does it more than a few times.>
Azure gives Rowan a surprised stare.
Rowan: <...What? I didn't like him either.>
"What's going on?? Clown?? Oh, we're fighting the clown. Well, I can work with this."
Kaguya fires a Flash Cannon.
-At the sound of applause, Aspen started to tear up, she couldn't hold it in any longer-
Sokka:<Oh boy, here we go again.> -Sokka returns to his Pokėball, knowing what's about to happen-
Me: "QQQQQUUUUUUIIIIIIIEEEEEEETTTTT!!!!!" -Aspen yelled as loud as she could dispite one of her vocal cord's are paralyzed-
-Ian obtained the Hologram Projector from Goober!-
Me: Thank you, Goober.
-Ian activates the Hologram Projector, disguising himself as an Interpol Soldier-
-The Raichu points out someone curled up into a ball hiding behind a box-
Gobo: What's that, buddy? Someone hiding behind the box?
-Gobo moves the box aside and sees Evelyn-
Gobo: Well, hello there... There's no need to be afraid...
Evelyn: Wh-Who are you?
Gobo: You can call be Gobo, I'm with Team Signal... Don't worry, Team Signal's the good guys...
-Gobo pats the Raichu on the head-
Gobo: This Raichu is my good pal... He assisted you in that distraction.
Raichu: <Nice to meet you.>
-Gobo helps Evelyn back to her feet-
Evelyn: N-Nice to meet you, Gobo. I'm Evelyn, and the Pokémon on my head is my friend, Hatty.
Hatty: <Nice to meet you. Sorry I called you "scary" earlier.>
Gobo: -laughs- It's okay, Hatty... You don't have to be afraid. Only those who support tyranny should have me to fear!
Would you like to come with me and continue the fight to save Santa?
Evelyn: I would love to help you save Father Christmas.
Gobo: I would assume that Father Christmas is another name for Santa...
Evelyn: And you'd be right. A trainer named Ian said the same thing before we came here.
Gobo: Ian... That name sounds familiar... Hold on a sec, Evelyn... I need to report in to my allies...
-Gobo takes out his communication device-
Gobo: Goober, do you read me? This is Gobo. The Carrey has been secured. I repeat, The Carrey has been secured. What's the situation where you are?
-Ian uses his psionic abilities to lift Izaya into the air and take control of his left arm-
Me: Hey guys... watch this...
-Ian quickly moves his left hand back and forth in front of his face in a slapping motion-
Me: Stop Hitting Yourself... Stop Hitting Yourself... Stop Hitting Yourself... Why are you hitting yourself? Why are you hitting yourself? Why are you hitting yourself?
-Ian giggles with a near-sadistic glee as he makes Izaya hit himself with his own left arm before gently setting him down-
Goober: That's good news. We've just got the message from the tunnel team. Reinforcements are arriving. I repeat. Reinforcements are arriving. Ambush team is on the move and ready to infiltrate. We've just neutralized a scout. Over.
He turns to his allies.
Goober: The insiders took control of the ship. We now have that on our side.
Bridge Officer: The emergency line is down.
Captain Macraul: Is there any form of communication in our ship besides the semaphore that you didn't compromise?
Mutineer: The analog intercom is all yours, captain.
Deputy Director Panelo: We do not negotiate with terrorists.
Tommy, Jr.: Charmelle, what is going on?
Captain Macraul: You will shut up right now, Panelo. I am trying to save your life and that of your insipid little boytoy. No offense, Mr. Petersen; I love your column.
Tommy, Jr.: <indecisive noises>
Captain Macraul: I am trying to cut our losses. Your little Arctic disaster ends now.
Deputy Director Panelo: You no longer have the rank of Captain, Gaspard. Command of the ship now belongs to Lt. Cross.
Tommy, Jr.: That's great and all, but can he hear you tell him that?
Mutineer: Access to the intercom and safe passage in exchange of control of the ship.
Deputy Director Panelo: Never.
Sailor: Corporal! Mutiny on the Carrey!
IDPD Shield Corporal Liss: You may fire when ready.
Awkward waiting ensues as the IDPD scramble to get the guns ready while assisting the injured and scared personnel from the Carrey up the boat.

Royal: -groans- As if this place weren't already a circus...
-Nemean Lion Crunches the Clown-
H. G. Cross: Look at the mess you and your friends have caused! You'll pay!
-He sends out a Shiny Klinklang, which whirrs agressively at Mia-
-Mia responds by Night Slashing them, and the two engage in combat-
Merlin: -to Aspen- <Easy there! Don't like noise huh? Need help?>
-Izaya takes the kick in the ribs and the self-slapping... not well but better than you'd think.-
Izaya: Heh... You... You...
-La listens to Tagg's words, then his eyes narrow at the continued humiiations-
Ultra La: ~If we're not going to kill him... We may as well send him so far away he never bothers us again!~
-He opens an Ultra Wormhole-
-YEETS Izaya through it-
-Yeets the first portal through a second portal-
-Then a third-
-Then a fourth-
-Before Photon Gysering the fourth portal out of existence-
Ultra La: ~Good riddance.~
Me: He's gone, isn't he?
Evelyn: What about the Fanatic?
Gobo: Good to hear. Now, be sure to let them have it and save the Big Man in Red.
Evelyn: Aye! Do your best and save Father Christmas!
Disguised Ian: So now what do we do?
Fuka: Woo! All right! (Fuka nearly loses her balance when the boat rocks) Um... (she looks at everyone else sheepishly) I should probably go tell them to stop...
Fuka starts heading for the upper deck
Edited by sgamer82 on Jan 1st 2020 at 7:19:04 AM
-Pent is... Pretty agnostic on how he feels about the punishment but then takes a deep breath and looks around-
And Fanatic appears in three, two, one...
-Pent just smiles at the interaction-
Anthem: <Okay so that doesn't help with type advantages... High Jump Kick again?>
-Eris nods and charges in to deliver said kick-
Latias: <Got it!>
-And thus the Latias went around trying to smash more cages, soon joined by Alrune. Sylvan however, is having a bit of a harsh time as she is hit by both attacks and stumbles back-
Sylvan: <I will not fall here!>
-Sylvan proceeds to use Synthesis... Underground. In a coal mine. After presumably most electric light sources have been EMP'd into uselessness. This does not heal much-
-To Merlin- "Uh, Yes please."
