"Lucius? Oh yeah, you're that guy who said that you're perfectly amicable as long as I don't know anything about you! I remember you from 2018's Christmas party!
"...Don't think I ever learned what makes him so despicable - he seems chill, given Lissa seemed familiar with him..."
A feeler grips Colton's wrist, and he winces as he is dragged back down into his seat, silently begging for circulation to come back.
Human!Ammy: -grins, waves- Lucius! Hi!
Giratina: <...Anyway, the rings.>
-He produces two boxes. One contains a sun-themed ring, which Umbra puts on. Another contains a darkness themed ring, which Ammy puts on.-
Giratina: <And now for real I pronounce you husband and wife.>
-Umbra and Ammy smile and kiss-
-Presumably there is a pause for cheers and applause and then...-
Giratina: <And now... We party.>
-Gino slaps a speaker and music starts playing-
-Chrome and Styx open up a door leading to a dance floor, bar, food tables, and a wedding cake-
-Everyone goes to mingle there, Alduin beelining for his alternate-universe ghost (which I'll cover next post)-
-Some small shapes slip in as well-

Both Alyesha and Matvey were surprised (mildly spoken) on how anticlimactic this ended (not that they complained about that, though). Instead, they simply began clapping again, even more so when - finally - the wedding was official.
With the wing now close to landed, Sergey finally relaxed again, having to hold back to not simply stumble through the hallways in the turbulences to be the first at the airlock.
While the Sł continued their merry bumping quest, only sometimes niterrupted by finishing off another enemy, they as well began chatting happily
-Pent quietly files into the Reception Zone, his eyes darting around to locate specific people-
-Paarthurnax finds somewhere to settle his ancient body for now. He needed so much rest-
-Once Pentigan has found a seat he gets out a decent-sized lacquered wood box from his bag and places it carefully in front of him as he expectantly looks out at the crowd-
Daydre snaps out of zoning out (the confusion blue-screen kind, not the boredom kind) at the hint of food, and makes her way over to the reception area.
"Uhhhh shit... Can't you do anything that'll pin him down?"
Kaguya shrugs, does the motion of spitting in her paws, runs over to Tom Fool, and throws a heavy Punch that has a chance of making him feel Dizzy.
".. Well, that works??"
Rowan: <Huh. Did you guys get like, paid to recoup your losses?>
<...I have unfortunate proof that I still have a liver.> He says, shuddering.
"I've.. never actually taken an allergy test, come to think of it! Though I might be mildly allergic to kiwis."
"I don't think I've ever really asked you that either, so uh.. Agree to trade?"
Daydre just instinctively reaches out to complete the handshake, because that's just what you do when someone reaches a hand out towards you right?
"My life story isn't ...terribly interesting? I was born near Pastoria, did the Sinnoh gym challenge and failed at the League, and then I did nothing for two years until I met the J-team." She seems to pointedly skim over the gym challenge and League part.
Hound: <[IhateclownsIhateclowns]hate, hate, HATE clowns...>
Raijuu: Calm yourself, contractor. You must focus or I can't fight at optimal strength.
-Tanten walks over and grabs his tree-shaped gift off the table. Well, perhaps grabbed puts too much simplicity into it. It's quite large.-
-He eventually manhandles the present over... wait, he kinda didn't think about this. He probably should have figured out where to put it before he started carrying it.-
-He just sorta thunks the package down next to Pent, it towering over both of them- but just a little bit.-
-He gives Pent a curt nod.-
Linnéa: Um... This was certainly... interesting.
DS: Um... Excuse me... I just need a moment...
- DS walks away from the wedding area, taking Rouge with her -
Sunburst: <... Should we follow her?>
Eli: <... I'll go.>
- Eli decides to follow DS -
Candida: <Um... What should we do?>
Sunburst: <I don't know... Do we join the party, or wait for them to get back?>
Linnéa: (pets her Sobble) You okay?
Linnéa's Sobble: <I... What just happened?>
Ray's Grookey: (seems to be curious about the party)
-Lucius grins at Ammy, and raises his glass as she and Umbra exchange rings.-
Lucius: Yes, I am that Lucius Cain, and I'm here to deliver a toast! For the man dedicated to fixing his mistakes, and the woman willing to forgive them! Gods, I'm a sucker for weddings...
-He blinks and turns away to try and conceal the fact that he's tearing up, only to find himself facing Halis, Megan, Colton and others.-
Lucius: Oh, um... well, me dying is kinda a long story, but long story short, I'm here now! So, uhh... erm, kid, do you mind if we try to find a place to talk privately for a moment?
-He says this whilst trying to locate the part of the reception with the least people but the most drink trays.-

Kim: (smiles) "Just Kim will suffice, thank you."
Geddy (suddenly catching sight of the married couple getting their rings) <Kim, look!>
(Kim suddenly turns to see Ammy and Umbra recieving their rings, which is then followed by the proclamation that the two are now husband and wife. Seconds after this happens, Kim returns to her seat and she, Geddy, Kaylan, Paul, Sinatra, and Dio all burst into cheers and applause.)
Dio: <YEAH—!! WHOO-HOOOOOOOO—!>
Paul and Geddy: (just clap politely)
Kim: (still clapping; happily) "To the groom and bride!"
(Upon hearing the official proclamation of marriage, the Scorbunny bursts into very loud cheers and applause, and the Sobble looks over at the two of them kissing in slight awe, not even clapping or saying a word. The Scorbunny, naturally, engulfs him in a giant hug.)
Scorbunny: <THEY'RE MARRIED, SOBBLE! They're married—! I can't believe it! This is the happiest day of my life! LONG LIVE THE BRIDE AND GROOM—!>
Sobble: (blinks, trembles slightly, then smiles) <Y-yes. Long live the bride and groom.>
Scorbunny: (in delight) <Where's Geddy? I have to tell him about this!>
(The Sobble looks for a bit, then notices Geddy and points at him with his tiny chameleon gripper.)
Sobble: <O-oh! He's... um, over there.>
(The Scorbunny catches sight of him.)
Scorbunny: <Well, what are we waiting for? Come on, Sobble! Let's go and talk to him— and join the party!>
Sobble: <P-party? I'm not much big on parties-> (the Scorbunny grabs him and takes him away) <-GAAAAAAAAAAH!>
A reasonably-sized box in reflective silver wrapping appears on the gift table while Colton, Sylveon and Gail find themselves seated at a table together.
"First wedding you've ever been to?" Gail asked.
"Second," Colton admitted. "There was a wedding some years ago in another dimension - long story; you hang around us long enough and those long stories can be abridged by almost 80% - and another where... I don't want to talk about it."
"Yeah, it wasn't pleasant," Sylveon agreed. "You ever see someone wake up with a hangover three days in a row? I have, and the misery is contagious."
The three stared off at the rest of the party, hoping to distract themselves from such a train of thought.
Meanwhile two Pichu worked their way to the tables for some food to swipe.
One of them is just stuffing it into his mouth while the other is inelegantly stuffing some of the longer-lasting stuff into a lunchbox.
- DS quietly pets Rouge while aimlessly wandering around -
Rouge: <... You okay?>
DS: (sighs) ... I'm fine.
Eli: <Are you sure?>
DS: (looks over at Eli) Eli?
Eli: <If you're just a bit overwhelmed and need some time to calm down, then that's fine... I'm sure the others understand.>
DS: ... Mm-hm...
"Aw yes. Now comes the portion where the guests embarrass themselves and the best-them makes a fool of the groom."
He walks out for a few then comes back with a odd rainbow Rapidash. He presents it to Umbra and Ammy.
"The newly wedded Mrs. and Mr. Amaterasu. I present you this "bridle" gift. A Rapidash variant native to this region. His name is Bon Bon and will serve you well. I had him specially bred for you. He is in the top tier of Rapidash, as it were."
Des bows then slinks off to the edges of the party to be mostly alone.
-Umbra and Ammy move over to the gift table to receive gifts!-
Human!Ammy: Thank you Des!
Umbra: Bon Bon?
Bon Bon: -whinnies-
Alduin: <So, you're the evil other me from the ninth dimension huh?>
<Nice to meet you!>
Alduin?: <I suppose. Who's the lady with you?>
Tiamat: <His mate!>
-they can be approached-
-Merlin is at the bar serving drinks and can also be approached-

-Ian raises his glass of [Shirley Temple] high for Ammy and Umbra, happy that they can be happy together.-
Me: Haha! The light and dark have united tonight! Now we can party!
Evelyn: -looks over at Ian and laughs- You sound like you're drunk...
Me: I'm not drunk! I asked for a [Shirley Temple]! What part of that is alcoholic?
Evelyn: Fair enough.
Me: -to Amaterasu- Watashi wa tabi de ōku no densetsunopokemon ni atta koto ga arimasuga, izen ni megami ni atta koto wa nai to omoimasu. Hajimemashite!Translation I've met many Legendary Pokémon on my journey, but I don't think I've ever met a goddess before. It's so nice to meet you!
Vee: -recoalescing- <Haha, naaaah, we've declared bankruptcy seventeen times over the course of Megan's teenagerhoo—>
Pippy: -shove- <No!! Ahaha, the process by which we were paid was arcane and I still don't fully understand it, but we came out in the black! I think.>
Megan: Oh my gosh
I was born in Pastoria! :D
And I tried the Gym Challenge, and...I didn't finish it! Which happens a lot!
(Pippy: -s m i l e- c : )
Vee: -...headtilt...?- .3
Megan: ...and now it's ten years later, and now I'm here! With the J-Team!
<And now everything's great!>
-not meeting each others' eyes, because that would be a challenge! and they're not challenging this!-
Megan: -similarly quickly- Uh, and then I got into swimming, and then I found—Vee!
Megan: -nodnod- Fell right out of my Backpack.
Pippy: -nodnod- <Nearly insensate and blind as a Zubat.>
Vee: -low- <eeeeeeee...>
Pippy: <Uh, but!! Already awesome!!>
Vee: <Yeeeeeeee!> >.3
Megan: ...huh, we maybe have a lot in common! ^_^
-yes, they're both kinda from Pastoria!-
-a blue-papered box on the table contains a carved red-white Dawn Stone and purple-black Dusk Stone, carved into the interlocking shapes of a sun and moon respectively, set on necklace strings that gleam like starlight-
Pippy: -carving- <Hum ta tum ha hum...>
Pollen: -stare- <So...you're basing this gift entirely off of the almost-pun "Umbra" and "Amaterasu"...?>
Human!Vee: -leather-clad, browsing- Haha, heyyy, the names actually match up with this old history-myth, with these guys that beat the absolute shit outta each other—
Pippy: -still carving, cheerily- <Maybe don't bring that up!>
Vee: Why not??
-clench, firm- 's about the passion.
Thespi: -pop- <Passion~!>
-alongside said necklace box, there's a gift extravagantly wrapped in gold-colored foil and ribbon-
-it contains an odd spherical device, from which there's an assortment of antennalike protuberances and a screen with pretty lights-
To: Ammy & Umbra
If you're reading this, you're looking at the TogedamaruTech™ SmartHome™ SpineScan™!
This art-of-the-state household device not only outputs a [WiFi] connection at a range of four miles, it detects and marks powerful energy signatures at the same range! No old adventuring nemeses will get the drop on you while this is around~!
(* there's anywhere between eight and thirty-three notifications already logged.)
A variety of other functions are detailed in the user manual, enclosed within!
-hidden partly behind it, there's an unadorned metal box-
Have a long, happy life together! 🌞🌝
-and there's a cute winky chibi thumbs-up clip art of someone the happy couple's never met-
-and on top of these, Pollen left the sunflower and moonflower, entwined and resting over each other-
-Megan and Logan are over at the reception, having physically wrestled Vee away from the altar-
Vee: -entangled in Styler-line- <Just a little fight!>
Megan, Logan: -hauling- NO!!
Pippy: -booping her nose- <Boop!>
Addie: -faint- <Please don't provoke her, this won't hold long>
Megan: -straining- Oh, hi Merlin!
Logan: -likewise- Help me
-Logan can be approached (for probably some normal conversation)-
-likewise Thespi, distantly trailed by a disgruntled Pollen-

-Pent gives a curt nod back before handing over the wood box to the couple and slinking off to the bar-
-Inside the ornate lacquered wood box is four round pastry buns; two tinted lavendar and decorated with the crest of Spectra and two tinted a faint orange and marked with a basic glyph of the sun. A label on the inside of the lid lists these as Ranseian Wedding Buns-
-Which is peculiar, given that the recipe for such a delicacy is considered lost in the modern age-
Ariadne <Okay, let's try this then!>
-Arachne does an odd dance-
-Pulling out what appears to be a Sun Stone fused with a Dusk Stone-
Found this oddity and figured it might be fitting, I don't think you could evolve anything with it though.

-Tanten follows suit and hands the tree off to Umbra.-
-It turns out to be a lot heavier than it looks, but underneath the wrapping paper it would appear the bounty of Berries has been, and continues to be, plentiful.-
-Like, unnaturally so. Berries are growing, like, every 20 minutes.-
Tanten: "And there's some of my special blend of fertilizer on the gift table. Don't ask what's in it. It's extremely disappointing based on the results."
-Tanten wanders off to do Arceus-knows-what.-
(Kim and her Pokemon promptly walk up and join the party, all chatting excitedly. However, they are eventually interrupted by a cheerful, high-pitched, middle-class Galarian-accented voice coming from behind them.)
Scorbunny: <'Scuse me! Is Geddy here?>
(Upon hearing the voice, Kim turns around. When she sees the Scorbunny- and his ever-panicky Sobble compatriot, she smiles.)
Kim: "Oh, it's you! Good to see you again, Sobble and Scorbunny. Yes, Geddy is here."
(She sets down Geddy, who happily waves at both of them and runs over to them.)
Kim: "Why did you ask?"
Scorbunny: (hugging Geddy) <Oh, nothing, really. We just wanted to talk to him again.> (then, noticing the other Pokemon) <Who are they, by the way?>
Kim: "Oh, you mean the rest of my Pokemon? The Butterfree is Paul, the Gligar is Dio..."
Dio: (happily) <Hello~!>
Kim: "...and the Turtwig is Kaylan. Oh, and the Furret on my head is Sinatra. He just evolved."
Sinatra: (saluting) <Hey, kid.>
Scorbunny: (cheerfully, winking at him and jumping up into the air) <'Ello there! Good to meetcha!>
Sobble: (meekly waving) <Hello...>
Scorbunny: (hopping over to Kim) <So! Whatcha doin' right now?>
Kim: "Well, I was going to go over to the party to celebrate with the rest of the group..." (She smirks.) "Do you want to talk to Ian and Evelyn?"
Scorbunny: (happily) <DO I?!>
Sobble: (reluctantly) <So long as they aren't d-dangerous...>
Kim: "They're not. Ian's the Trainer with Raru, the Ralts who helped you through that panic attack."
Sobble: <Oh... okay, then... sure...>
Scorbunny: (hugs the Sobble) <Yay! Come on, Sobble! On we go then!>
(With that, the Sobble and the Scorbunny follow Kim and the rest of her Pokemon over to the party.)
Dio: <Ooh~! New friends! This is so exciting!>
Geddy: <I like them already.>
Sobble: (nervously, holding out his grippers) <B-by the way, Geddy... thanks for not saying anything about my grippers...>
Geddy: (tilts his head) <Why would I?>
Sobble: (nervously) <W-well... they're a lot smaller than a normal Sobble's are, if you couldn't tell...>
Geddy: <I couldn't. Besides, why would I notice a thing like that?>
(He joins Kim, and although he can't see it, the Sobble smiles, and cries tears of joy.)
Sobble: (quietly) <T-thank you...>
(Eventually, Kim comes to a stop in front of Ian.)
Kim: "Alright, here we are."
(she taps Ian on the shoulder)

At some point post-free food consumption, Daydre approaches the present table and sets down a rectangular box wrapped in purple paper.
Inside is a perfectly mundane blender. It is not magic, nor will it talk to you when you're least expecting it. It does, however, have six settings and a replacement blade (in case the original becomes dull). A review on the back of the box reads, "Kitchen Enthusiast.com says: 4.5/5 stars- It really blends!"
Attached is a note that says "Trust me, you're going to need this."
Rowan tilts his head.
Rowan: <Pay schemes seem to just be like that, huh?> "We really do, huh? I even chose a Piplup as my...!" She suddenly stops, clears her throat, and stares awkwardly at Rowan. What follows is the rough translation of the split second conversation they have with just their eyes. Daydre's Eyes: Rowan help me Rowan's Eyes: You brought it up! And you should open up about it eventually! Daydre's Eyes: I don't want to though Rowan's Eyes: You gotta rip the bandaid off, and EMPEROR'S been hanging around lately- you can't avoid it forever. Daydre's Eyes: I can try! Rowan's Eyes: Is that a challenge? Daydre's Eyes: >:( Rowan's Eyes Don't give me that look! ... This is going on in complete silence, for the record. (clearly trying to pretend that didn't just happen) ".. So uhh, yeahhh... I'm from like, a suburb near Pastoria."

Me: -to Kim- What is it, Kim?
Edited by AnimeboyIanpower on Feb 18th 2021 at 11:32:34 AM
(Kim gestures to the Scorbunny and Sobble. The former waves at Ian happily.)
Scorbunny: <We just want to come in and join the festivities, if you don’t mind. You must be Ian. It’s nice to meet you.>
Kim: (smiles) “He speaks Japanese, you know.”
Scorbunny: (stunned) <H-he does WHAT?!>
Me: Oh, hello. Nice to meet you both.
Evelyn: Oh cool! A Scorbunny and a Sobble!
-Evelyn checks her Pokédex.-
Evelyn's Pokédex: Scorbunny, the Rabbit Pokémon. A Fire type. One of the three Starters of the Galar Region, a warm-up of running around gets fire energy coursing through this Pokémon's body. Once that happens, it's ready to fight at full power. It has special pads on the backs of its feet, and one on its nose. Once it's raring to fight, these pads radiate tremendous heat.
Sobble, the Water Lizard Pokémon. A Water type. One of the three Starters of the Galar Region, when scared, this Pokémon cries. Its tears pack the chemical punch of 100 onions, and attackers won't be able to resist weeping. When it gets wet, its skin changes color, and this Pokémon becomes invisible as if it were camouflaged.
(The Scorbunny is still in shock.)
Scorbunny: <Y-you speak fluent Japanese?! Are you serious? Is this a joke?>
