-Purple-name twin is silent for a few moments before sipping their glass of faintly blue wine (which they have now)-

???: I mean if you want us to knock you down to loser's bracket in the first round and take you out completely if you scramble up to the finals then Meloetta can arrange that for you.

Meloetta: <Actually the tournament bracket is randomized!>

-The other twin wanders over and picks up another glass of wine (which is there now)-

???: Hm. If you're swinging at TBD you should probably watch your back.

It's clearly a case of backroom political albumizing.

Ranger tilted his head at the Mimikyu, as Hayden leaned forward to inspect Olivia better.

<PEFE documentation notes that there are beings such as vampires. Perhaps->

"Oh you mean like Victor?"

Hayden stopped and stared at Arthur, <Pardon?>

"Victor Helstrand, knight then noble, he's a vampire. He and I met up recently, he's still a self centered jerk but at least he's not Livius," Arthur responded.

Megan: -blink- Yes?

Pippy: <...>

-to Rowan- <So yeah, if you'd like to sync itineraries, I'm sure we could arrange a date.>

Megan: -ghrfl?-

but also yes

-Megan, Logan, and Hiro have pulled up chairs at a table by now, Abilene leaning impatiently on a nearby wall, waiting for-

-...something-

Hiro: -to Logan, sitting upright, with a foot drawn over one knee- From watching you, they had nowhere near the same sensitivity, though. Not if the rest of the Rangers had half your charm and twice your flaws.

Logan: -resting their cheek on their hand on their elbow on the table, dry- Thanks.

Hiro: -literally biting his tongue, smirk- Of course.

Logan: -tapping their cheek- We've got all sorts, really. I'll admit I don't think well of all my coworkers. But at the end of the day, there's a pretty hard line drawn between, uh, self-aggrandizement, and actual neglect. It's a pretty wide line, and it's one we've drawn ourselves.

-fiddling quietly with something beneath the table- What did they do?

Hiro: -splaying a hand's fingers, projecting an imaginary panorama with his sweeping palm- They proclaimed far and wide that the practice of Pokemon training was awful, and everyone should release all their Pokemon immediately.

This was followed by many attempts to "liberate" Pokemon, by force if necessary.

Logan: ...hm.

-fiddling further- Did they ask the Pokemon?

Hiro: In general? No, they did not.

Addie: <In general?>

Hiro: There were exceptions.

Logan: ...very common exceptions?

Hiro: Good question!

What have you seen, in your time among Trainers? You're very perceptive, even keeping in mind you've never been a Trainer yourself.

-his expression is less challenge and more...fervent curiosity-

-have I missed anything, it asks-

Logan: Honestly? Heh.

Hiro: Haaah. :P

Logan: -fiddling firmly- There's been abuses. I've rescued some. But they've been...few and far between.

Well actually, some run in similar circles, so maybe more like "few with less space between them than I'd like", but really it's...

Sometimes I worry about having one human stretched thin taking care of however many Pokemon they have—in some cases, it's a lot more than six. And really, it takes a village, there's more accountability, more workpower, more advice...

-admitting- Well, there's nothing that says communities can't also be toxic as hell, but that's what I'm trained to work against. There is a culture here that tries to see that young Trainers have what they need to get by, more or less. The number of times someone's handed me something helpful just walking down the street, is. Pretty remarkable, really.

Abilene: …that's mostly for kids, you know.

Logan: -gesture to face- I'm five foot two, and my brief experience with this was sufficiently illustrative to cite.

Megan: -weakly- Uh, I dunno—I've handed out loads of stuff to pretty much everyone? I-I dunno if it's just a kid thing…

Logan: -shaking their head, plowing past the distraction- Whether some people need ethics lessons is another thing entirely. But there's...a lot of happy Pokémon. Genuinely happy, free, fed and fulfilled. Everyone takes care of each other, mostly, and that stands for a lot.

Megan: ...

Hiro: -nod- I asked myself the same question, a lot. If you don't ask, how can you know?

Logan: -headtilt- How'd you go about doing that?

Hiro: I released all my Pokémon.

Megan: -sharp inhale-

Logan: -...blink-

Abilene: ...well.
