Kim: (pauses for a few moments) “Hm... where are they?”
Prof. Rowan: That way. (points to where the crash sound came from)
-at that selfsame moment, a flaming Piplup runs by, screaming-
Me: Well, it's settled. Evelyn, Kim... you go stop the fighting! I'll put out the Piplup!
Evelyn: On it! Come along, Kim!
Kim: (nods) “Right.”
(she runs off, followed by Paul, Sinatra and Dio, to the source of the crash)

-Ian runs off following the flaming Piplup, as Evelyn runs off to where Turtwig and Chimchar are duking it out!-

-Chimchar curls himself into a ball surrounded by fire and throws himself at Turtwig.-
-Turtwig ducks to avoid Chimchar's attack.-

Kim: (takes out Pokedex) “Hm... that’s odd... it says here this Turtwig has a Gentle nature... Well, the gentle ones do snap the hardest, I suppose.
Paul: <Not me, though. I’ll go talk to them.>
(He promptly flies up to the Turtwig and taps him with his wing.)
Paul: <Excuse me? Hello?>
Turtwig: <What do you want?>
Paul: <Sorry to bother you. My name’s Paul; my Trainer Kim’s looking for a Turtwig and we heard there was a bit of a commotion regarding you two?>
Turtwig: <Darn right, there is! This Chimchar burned my mouth at naptime!>
Evelyn: -checks Pokédex- Hmm... This Chimchar's has an Adamant nature... Mirai? Come on out.
-Evelyn presses the button on one of her Poké Balls, which opens and out comes Mirai, who then taps Chimchar on the shoulder-
Mirai: <Excuse me...>
Chimchar: -in a Brooklyn accent- <Eh, what's it to ya?>
Mirai: <My name is Mirai, and this girl is my trainer Evelyn. We heard that there was a commotion between you and Turtwig...>
Chimchar: <You bet there is! This Turtwig bit my tail at naptime!>

Paul: <Hm... well, I’m sure it was an accident. You were sleeping, after all... likely got so invested in the dream that you couldn’t see what you were doing, and before you knew it your mouth was on fire. Pretty common occurrence, if you know what I mean.>
Paul: <Wonder what it was you were dreaming about, by the way...>
Turtwig: <What was I dreaming about?> (looks up, then dreamily) <Marshmallows... Delicious...>
Paul: <They definitely are, aren’t they?>

Mirai: <Well, I'm sure it was an accident. You were asleep and your friend was so invested in his dream that he didn't pay attention to his surroundings and bit your tail and burned his mouth. And you keep your tail flame off while you sleep so that sort of thing doesn't happen, right?>
Chimchar: <Yeah... that's exactly it! I douse my tail flame so nothing catches on fire, and when I wake up, I light my tail up again...>
Mirai: <See? Now we understand each other... And I'm sure Turtwig will understand and will want to be friends again.>
Chimchar: <Ya know? You're right. I'm sure it was all some big misunderstandin'... I'll go talk to Turtwig right now.>
-Ian chases the Piplup who is still on fire until the Piplup is cornered-
Me: -calmly to the Piplup- Now now, Piplup... I'm not here to hurt you... I just wanna help you not be on fire...
Piplup: <Ouchie ouchie ow ow ow, I'm on fire!>
Me: -calmly- I know... and I can help you... Oshawittle? Come on out.
-Ian presses the button on his Poké Ball, which opens and out comes Oshawittle-
Oshawittle: <Whaddya need me to do?>
Me: -calmly- I need you to sprinkle Piplup with the water of your Aqua Jet to put out the fire.
Oshawittle: <On it.>
-Oshawittle surrounds himself in water and flies around in circles over the Piplup's head, sprinkling water on the flames, putting them out. Ian then takes a Super Potion out of his bag and sprays the Piplup's wounds. The Piplup winces as the medicine touches the burns.-
Me: -calmly- I know it hurts, but it'll help you get better...
Piplup: -about to cry- <Th-Thank you...>
Me: -calmly- You're welcome, little guy...

Edward, still in control: If you think I will be intimidated by someone who cavorts with criminals you are cra—
Shutter, emerging from within Edward's maw: Absolutely right. My deepest apologies for this incident sir.
Edward gets reabsorbed back into Shutter's body. The lithe Orange Islander's eyes turn a creepy purple.
Shutter, mentally: ~Shut up. That was the most awkward thing you've made me do. By thunder if there was a way to purge you out of my system I would. We're settling your differences the human way.~
Edward: ~Well, fine.~
Shutter: ~And a mutiny, really? That was your plan?~
Edward: ~It sounded like a good idea at the time.~
-Baccarat turns to leave-
???: Hey, where are you going?
-turns, very slowly, looking a little tense-
-Ever's head is poking out of the water-
-unlike before, they don't seem to be struggling, not even drifting with the tide-
-they're just staring-
-with solid yellow eyes-
-hair gently waving, a little more than the sea breeze warrants-
Ever: So, you probably want to hear all about how I'm still alive.
Baccarat: <Don't elaborate. I don't care. It won't last.>
-she wiggles her wings-
-Ever just sits there, staring-
Baccarat: <...I want an explanation for that.>
Ever: But it's so obvious. Can't you count? The explanation of my survival is so much cooler.
Baccarat: <Explain yourself.>
-Ever rises from the sea-
-as they do, the yellow fades from their eyes, and their hair and clothes return to the ordinary bedraggled appearance of someone dropped unexpectedly into the ocean-
-and they're standing, perched with unusual grace, on-
Drift: <Frillish. ~_^>
Ever: You missed. ^_^
Baccarat: <...I'm going to execute you now.>
Ever: Oh yeah?
-absolute manic grin-
You and what movepool?
Baccarat: <What if I just strangle you?>
Ever: Well, you could try, but...I dunno. I think Drift's a little miffed by your treatment of Nitro, earlier. So....I could leave you here to look around for Lum berries on the trees, but I'm inclined to not do that. In your own words...bye.
Ever: Come on, let's grab her before she drifts out to sea and gets eaten by Sharpedo.
Ever: I don't know. It's an expression. Just help me out.
Ever: Yeah, that's what makes us the good guys.
-with a sigh, Drift swims to shore, pushing Bacccarat onto the beach-
Ever: Much appreciated.
-they hop off of Drift, recalling the Jellicent-
Ever: Now come on, we should make sure the others aren't dead yet.
Ever: Maybe not a sign of health that I waited until I was alone to say that.
"That's... fair. Sometimes I forget exactly how long you were gone. Maybe it was because of how happy I was that you're back?" She coughs.
"Uh, sorry, that's probably insensitive of me." She shifts in her seat, either due to discomfort or due to the realization of how much of this cafe comprises of Caterpie-line byproduct. Possibly a mix of both.
".. Yeah I'm kinda the same, aside from the technology. And I feel like I maybe had fewer attempts on my life so maybe I'm not the best touchstone either? ... In any case, um. If you need more normalcy and to not be in your room I guess I can help with that?"
Me: "Hey, is the portal finished yet? I want to go home."
As Andreas returned to the dock a flash of realization hit his pilot.
Hiding in his shadow he stepped into the Wing, looking for a coffee machine.
For him and Ziltoid.
Paul: <See? It was no one’s fault for the accident. You just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong ti->
(his voice trails off as he notices the Chimchar walking up to the Turtwig from behind)
Paul: <Turtwig, look!>
(The Turtwig turns, noticing the Chimchar coming up to him from behind.)
Turtwig: (tilts his head) <Chimchar? What are you doing here?>
Chmchar: <Look... I just wanted t'say I'm sorry... for boining yer mouth... I turn my tail flame off every time I go to sleep to make sure that sort of thing doesn't happen. Can you forgive me?>
(The second he hears those words, the Turtwig’s eyes light up, and he happily runs over to the Chimchar before gently glomping his head.)
Turtwig: (pulling away) <Of course. And... I’m sorry, too. I may have gotten a little too invested in my dream about marshmallows...>
(He chuckles nervously, and then drools.)
Turtwig: <So... yummy...>
Chimchar: <Yeah... They sure are...>
Piplup: <Hey, guys! Look! I'm no longer on fire.>
Turtwig: <I can see that. Are you okay?>
Piplup: <I'm okay. And I see that you two have calmed down.>
Turtwig: <Sure have.>
(Kim walks up and smiles over at Paul.)
Kim: “Excellent work, Paul. I knew you could be counted on.”
Paul: (blushes) <It was nothing.>
Sinatra: <...That was fast.>
Dio: <Really fast!>
Turtwig: <Who are you?>
Sinatra: <Oh, hey there. Name’s Sinatra.>
Dio: (happily) <And I’m Dio~!>
Turtwig: <...Do you free->
Turtwig: (sighs with relief)
Kim: “Well, now that everything is sorted out... Professor?”
Prof. Rowan: -nods- I'd say it's time... Alright, everyone... Line up...
-Prof. Rowan claps his hands twice and all three starter Pokémon stand in a line.-
Prof. Rowan: I shall give the three of you a choice between these three Pokémon.
You can choose Turtwig, the Grass Type...
Chimchar, the Fire type...
Or Piplup, the Water type...
Kim: (smirking) “This won’t even be hard, will it?” (turns to her Pokémon) “You all know who I came here for.”
(And with that, she walks up to the Turtwig and picks him up. His eyes light up in an instant.)
Turtwig: (happily) <You’re picking me?>
(Kim nods. The Turtwig nuzzles her in return.)
Turtwig: <Thank you! Thank you a thousand times over!>
Kim: “You’re welcome. And I already have a name for you, too.”
(Paul, Sinatra and Dio all blink.)
Dio: <Um... who?>
Paul: <Probably a musician.>
Sinatra: <If he is, he’s probably one I’ve never heard of...>
Kim: “Howard Kaylan. Lead singer of the Turtles.”
All three: <Ohhhhh...>
Kim: “Terrible pun, I know, but I had to.”
Me: Evelyn? Which starter will you choose?
-Evelyn thinks long and hard about her decision and considers the fact that she is training to become a Psychic-type Gym Leader like her mentor, Sabrina, and that none of the starters' final evolutions are Psychic-type... Then comes to the realization that Kako, if exposed to a Dawn Stone, evolves into Gallade, who is a Fighting type as well as a Psychic type. Considering this, she makes up her mind on what starter she will pick.-
Evelyn: I choose Chimchar.
Chimchar: <Y-You're picking me?>
Chimchar: <But aren'tcha trainin' to be a Psychic-type Gym Leader?>
Evelyn: I am... and I realized that when Kako, Mirai's Brother, is exposed to a Dawn Stone, he becomes a Fighting type, as will you. That way, you'll have someone to train with... and besides... A little diversity never hurt anyone...
Chimchar: <Ya know, you got a point there.>
Evelyn: Thanks for understanding... Hanuman...
