Monostoke Pokemon Center
-Aspen arived to heal her Pokemon-
Nurse: Hello! Welcome to the Pokemon Center. Did you came to heal your Pokemon?
Nurse: "Alright, I'll take your Pokemon for a couple seconds."
Nurse: "Thank you for waiting, Thwackey and the rest of your team should be all better now. We hope to see you again!"
Aspen: "Thanks!" -She took her Pokemon and putted them back, exept for Arrokuda, which she scanned with her Pokėdex with-
Abilty: Swift Swim
Moves: Aqua Jet, Peck, Bite.
'I might as well give you a nickname... Riptide sounds good! As for Thwackey... Ringo sounds great!'
-She released Arrokuda and Thwackey-
"Alright guys, I finally decided on what to call you! Arrokuda, you get the name Riptide."
Arrokuda: <It sounds like a boy name. Not a fan of it."
"What do mean you don't like it? Oh, okay, I'll see if I can come up with a better one" -She withdrew Arrokuda-
"As for you Thwackey, I got a great one... It's Ringo! Great right?"
Ringo: <Yeah! Sounds awesome! A perfect name!>
"I'm glad you agree with me." -She withdrew Ringo- 'Might as well train Arrokuda for awhile' -She went to the Wild Area to train-
Spongebob French Narrator: "One training session later..."
"Oh, nice you got a new move, Agility!"
Arrokuda: <Doubt I'll use it. My speed is already fast.>
-Aspen withdraw Arrokuda and went back to Monostoke-
-Logan tempers their dual orbit to a low ebb, Discs circling at a distance-
Logan: -sincere- Truly, Jevil.
I didn't understand a word of that.
Time and space—was he trapped in the Distortion World?
(What the hell kind of feeling was that at the end?)
It was the [tremendous-empty-wrong], you know.
(It's simple—there's a narrative somewhere he was locked in, that involved some kind of time loop. He knew about it, but was stuck repeating the same stuff over and over.)
(I was paying attention. For stuff to steal.)
Logan: -letting the small, half-drawn Sign fizzle out- Freedom starts with smashing your ties to they who would chain you to their purposes.
-arms wide, at the fire- Let us out of this circle...and we can find it. Take the ball, and give it to you or smash it ourselves.
Phoebe: -lazily- <Ready and willing!>
Logan: -beaming- What do you say?
-they reach their hand out to Jevil, expression open, guard down-
Megan: O-oh! I know what this must be about! ^_^;
Logan: I'm glad—
Megan: -rummage- Hold on, hold on…
-while she goes elbow-deep in her bag again, the ball slips from her grasp-
Megan: oh whoo—
-it hits the ground—pop-
Megan: -still elbows-in- O-oh, hello—!
-and the Sobble scurries under a desk-
Logan: -watching- ...
Megan: -already lost, rummage- U-um, Pippy!
Pippy: -yawn- <Did you say my na—>
Megan: N-new team member...?
-she smiles, awkwardly-
Pippy: -head-tilt- <...>
Pippy: -soft- <C'mere, lemme get a look at the little fella.>
-crouching down- <Hi~!>
Vee: -pop- <I smell fresh meat There's somemon new??> .O
-and she scurries under another, shorter desk-
-gesture, picking a name from the scream- <Sobble, this is Vee. She will eat anything and everything that threatens you.>
Sobble: -presumably not comforted, makes an unhappy noise-
Pippy: -legitimately bemused- <...what?>
<...oh, right. Most people don't find that endearing. Uh.>
Vee: -going for gentle, reaching out- <C'mon, 'fraidy—>
-she jerks back, leaving her paw behind-
Vee: -regenerating from the stump- <Wh—what the f—>
-she opens an eye on that new paw and looks down through it-
-and shivering beneath the desk is the Sobble, clutching a sawn-through half of the lab's electrical main-
(-behind them, computers go out-)
Professor Sonia: -...sigh-
-and she starts looking for where the ball rolled off to-
Vee: -panic, mouth on foot time- <Geez, kiddo, don't play with that you're gonna hurt yourself!>
Sobble: -screams somehow more silently, jabbing the sparking end of the wire out again-
Vee: -yelp, yowl- <C'mooooon, put it dooowwwn>
-shivery sounds, sparky sounds-
Sobble: -shiver shiver shiver-
...okay, stand back.
Vee: -activation sound, sharp- Vrrp?
Logan: -hands up- Hey, you know me.
-and Pippy and Vee back away, leaving room...-
-Logan slowly kneels down in front of the desk, smiles-
Sobble: -jerks the wire-tip back and forth-
Logan: -smiling, hands up- ...
-...they reach out-
-ever so gradually, not making a noise-
Sobble: -entranced- .........
-and close their fingers over the end of the wire-
Megan: -wide-eyed- ...u—
-their other hand swivel-points back in her direction, shushing her-
-without turning their head, or ceasing the incipient sizzling noise-
-take the wire from the Sobble's slack grasp, setting it gently to the side-
-lay their palms flat, facing upward, before the Sobble-
Prof. Sonia: -stare- ...
-...who eventually slinks onto them-
Logan: -lifting up to face level- And there. ^_^
-to the Sobble- Better, little one?
Sobble: <...'m fraidy.>
Logan: -soothingly- That's perfectly fine. We're all afraid sometimes.
Sobble: -headshake- <Fraidy.>
Logan: Nothing to worry about. It happens.
Vee: -recognition- <Uh.>
Pastoria, Far Far Past
12!Megan: O-okay, Eevee, I'm coming in, please don't bite my—
12!Megan: -almost dropping the tray- aaaaaa!!
12!Megan: Um, Eevee—
E!Vee: -insistently- Vee!!!
12!Megan: Vee??? @-@
E!Vee: -happily- Vee~!
E!Vee: Vee! :3
12!Megan: -extremely confused- Vee!! ^_^
E!Vee Vee: ^_^
Vee: <D, d'you mean yer called "Fraidy"?>
-hush- <...like, as a name?>
Pippy: -claws-tap- <Hm.>
Logan: It's a good name! ^_^
Vee: -yelp- <Yeah!!>
Megan: ......... .-.

Arthur gave it some thought, "Honestly I really should. There's enough of us, wouldn't be a bad idea to form a get together," he admitted.
Hayden pulled out a notepad, <I'll start drafting plans and a charter right away.>
Ranger spoke up, <You do realize this means Victor would likely join.>
Arthur blinked, "Good actually. Man needs some damn interaction in his life, maybe he'd be less of a prick."
Knight chuckled and floated right up to Shadow Robinson, Silas cracking his neck, "So the minions are effectively invulnerable then?"
"Then we'll just have to focus fire on the boss!"
Knight raised a hand and a mechanical cannon device form around it and over his shoulder, he pointed the barrels right at Robinson, "This will hurt me as much as it hurts you."
Silas raised a pointed finger, and pressed his thumb down, "Bang."
The cannon glowed, and fired right at the Shadow.
-But it's too late. Between the Taunt and the Follow Me any self-control Sorceress had is gone.-
Sorceress: "Oh, whatever, Runaway. Such a fitting codename for a coward like yourself. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to put down this insane clown so we don't all end up like that dumbass Ditto!"
-Both her and Demeter's eyes glow a bright yellow as the persona unleashes a Petal Dance.-
Guardian: <Milady Sorceress!>
-Guardian scurries to Songstress's side. Puck fires a Moonblast at Plutus from the tip of his dagger.-
Gabrielle: "I wouldn't put it past her."
Aurora, once Michael or Tagg finds her, bind her in place with Telekinesis. That should give us a chance to exorcise her.
-The Gardevoir teleports in and nods at Tagg.-
~Hey Doc, we've got a plan for ya.~
-She fires her Psyshock revolver at at Barty, while Michael attempts another prophecy.-
Oh, thank Arceus.
-PEFE!Every sprints along, carrying Sporange-
-sleads Carna down the halls, and towards a room, which she dives into, her mons just barely following along behind-
"Oh that reminds me I need to get my Pokedex upgraded. But where do I do that?" -She looked on her map on her phone- "Wedgehurst? I don't think I went there. Might as well go there. -She released Carbuncle and teleported to Wedgehurst-
"Well, this is a cute town." -Aspen looked around for a Pokemon Lab- "Oh? Nice this is it!" -She went inside-
Wedgehurst Pokemon Lab
'I guess someone else is talking to the professor at the moment. I'll wait.'
-At the moment Ian asked what he missed, he realized that he had almost forgotten something of extreme importance!-
Me: -places hands to head like a Psyduck- TAIHENDA~!!!
Wedgehurst, Pokemon Lab
Aspen: "Um... is the professor here? I need to upgrade my Pokedex."
Megan: -stuffing a sack back into her bag- Uh, so! What was it you wanted to…?
Logan: -friendly smile- Y'know what, it can wait.
Megan: -blink- ...okay? :?
-and the jingle of the door opening-
Professor Sonia: Ah, yes! I am present.
-weirdly, all the lights are off-
Professor Sonia: Welcome! ^^;
Receptionist: All set! Hiro Alíthea, number seven. Sponsored by Verity Metalworks, how nice!
Hiro: -slight nod- Thank you.
-and he's out on the town-
Receptionist: Here you are—Abilene Macraul, sponsored by…"Le Miracle du Printemps", how wonderful.
Abilene: -eyeroll, with the proper accent- Merci.
-and so is she-
Aspen: "Hello! I came here to upgrade my Pokedex. Um... why are all the lights off?"
Professor Sonia: -sweatdrop- Oh, there's just some technical difficulties. Nothing to worry about.
Sobble: -on a table, cries slightly, as Sobble do-
-the tall, muscular girl in blue recalls the Sobble, and turns to the much shorter Pokemon Ranger, in their red-and-yellow uniform-
Megan, the former: -to Aspen, Sonia- Ah! We'll get out of your hair. ^^;
Logan, the latter: ...I dunno—it always pays to make a new friend. I've got a feeling about this one.
-holding out a hand- Hi, I'm Logan!
Megan: Uh, hi—eep!
-a Yamper runs between her legs, to a large snipped wire under a table-
-zaps into it, and the lab flickers slightly back to life-
Professor Sonia: Hrm.
Aspen -high pitched- "Awww! Oh my Arceus its so cute! Hi!" -she kneeled to pet the Yamper-
-Nemean Lion attempts to aim another Crunch at Shadow Robinson-
-But Tom Fool's Follow Me nyooms the Crunch into them instead-
Alex: After her! We need her mad science knowledge!
Cogsworth: <On it!>
Olivia: Oh? If this is the Arthur I'm thinking of how's he?
-Despite all of her life experience, the young woman known as Vinegar - to her friends - was at a loss. She'd been kicked out of her house by her bitch of a stepmother before she'd even made middle school. She'd had to cobble together a taser to defend herself until Duking finally got Pyrite Town under control again. She'd had to deal with her best friend, Twitch, constantly using her brain for whatever crazy scheme would get itself caught between the folds of her brain. But, despite this, she'd never dealt with anything quite like the young girl her boss had adopted.-
-Vinegar knew empathy, could feel it, though she rarely had the inclination to use it. Now that she was in a situation that called for it, she found it only made things worse the more she considered it. She had a tough childhood, but... at least she found enjoyment in it.-
-The more she considered Ludmilla's position, the more it occurred to her that whereas herself and Twitch had done things either partially or wholly for the sake of amusement despite living on the streets, moreso now they had a job and a place to stay, Ludmilla was merely... coping.-
-This revelation initially left Vinegar rather confused, but the more she thought on it, the more sense it made. Vinegar and Twitch may have had concerns, like a warm place to sleep, and food, and staying away from the Battle Square, but there was something different about Ludmilla. But she couldn't put it to words.-
-Vinegar rolled words around her heads trying to find the right ones. Something about responsibility. Depression. Stress. All those adult words.-
-Adult. That one stuck to her. Ludmilla was... an adult? Despite how strange it sounded describing someone who hadn't even had her first visit from Aunt Flow, it made sense. Vinegar had heard of what happened in Alola. Her siblings go after her, before they were disposed of by those stupid tin soldiers that have attacked the house every other week. And before that, she was left in some frozen vault, forced to hunt for food while competing with the local Sneasels.-
-And now with her parents gone, off to Not Even Gods Know Where, she's slid even further into herself, barely leaving her room during the day and sneaking out at night when she thinks no one will notice, probably to go do some unhealthy catharsis exercises. And...-
-Vinegar has no idea how to help with that. She sighs, shaking her head as she finishes riveting the engine of today's project back into the frame. She slaps the safety catch and let's the hood fall down. Good looking machine, she thought to herself. Could do donuts in the wastes if she had the time.-
-... Oh. Duh. Freaking duh.-
-Vinegar quickly signs the finished work order and bolts out of the garage, vaulting over the Metagross that was her temp manager. Mobius is somewhat surprised until he sees that Vinegar is running off towards the scrapyard with creative intent. Not something you can usually tell from seeing someone run, but Mobius has had experience seeing that sort of thing.-
Ludmilla: Here's the... er...
José: Chrysanthemum, thank you. This one might take a bit of effort, I'll need to prepare a little.
-The short boy jumped into his jalopy, making the pile of stuff in the back wobble while he searched through it. Ludmilla, for her part, stood there awkwardly.-
José: I hear there's a group of people like you out and about.
Ludmilla: Heard from who?
José: Oh, Orre is filled with all sorts of totemic spirits. Kinda like in Alola, but without that dimension mumbo jumbo that makes them huge and, you know, physical. The Honchcrow one trades stories for food. Seems really proud of his cousins, whoever they are, who are helping that group I mentioned find people to take the bad out of.
-Ludmilla tilts her head before shaking it. The only people she'd seen in the Metaverse were Yellow Eyes, José, and the twisted shadows of humanity's dark impulses. Her shadow nudges her. And, yes, of course, a wandering soul lost from the cycle of life and death. But she had no real need for help. The collateral damage she caused when fighting at full strength was not conducive to a group, and she didn't know these people in any event.-
-The boy held out his hands, and instead of the orange chrysanthemum that he had been given, in its place was a... knife? A pair of brass knuckles? Both?-
José: This is a trench knife. A weapon from an old war. Not what I expected to get from a flower like that.
-Ludmilla takes it in her hands, feeling the heft of the steel, the polish on the wooden handle, and the smell of a foreign beach - salt water, blood, gunpowder - on the edge of sense.-
Ludmilla: ... Wow.
José: I know you don't fight with weapons most of the time, but...
-Ludmilla's shadow whispered her approval, and Ludmilla herself carefully hooked the blade's sheath onto her belt. The physical weight of the knife was one thing, but the historical weight, in the Metaverse at least, was something else entirely.-
José: That's it for tonight. I'll see you later, Scarecrow!
-Ludmilla wasn't sure how to feel about the nickname José had given her, but she supposed there were worse names, considering her outfit and fighting style. She gave the boy a wave as his jalopy sputtered off into the tunnel.-
-the Yamper yips, still channeling electricity into the lab's grid-
-somehow, he manages to accommodate the pets-
Logan: -entirely ignored, steps backward to stand back next to Megan-
Logan: -amused- It happens.
-a Pachirisu wearing a yellow scarf scampers up next to the Yamper, waving adorably up at Aspen-
Addie, the Pachirisu: -makes some helpful-sounding Pachirisu noises, then also starts shocking the wire-
-the lights all come back on-
Professor Sonia: -hands on hips- Ah, there we go.
-clap, cheery- Well, whenever you're ready!
(-also in the room is a very beautiful Empoleon and a very small Vaporeon-)
(-the Vaporeon is a rather small torso attached to short little legs and about three feet of tail, and also has an eye patch-)
Kim: “What is it?”
-Aspen stands back up and turns to Professor Sonia- "Here" -She gave Sonia her Pokedex- "Can you upgrade it for me?"
Baccarat: <What a strange, lucky coincidence.>
Baccarat: <Usurping the power of the gods ourselves, obviously.>
Revy I: Hail, sons and daughters of mine.
Ever: ...Oh, that's not good.
Ever: Now come on, we should make sure the others aren't dead yet.
-while Ever deals with the bird and makes their way back, let's check in-
Revy: Well, Amanita? Think you can beat me on your own?
Amanita: It's not looking like I have a lot of choice.
Revy: Seems to be a theme as of late.
Amanita: Fuck off with that.
Revy: ...Alright. Hygieia. Elysium. Get yourselves ready.
Hygieia: <I'm always on call!>
Elysium: <Yeah, to be perfectly honest there was no need at all for that instruction.>
Amanita: Sure it's the best decision for you to pick a Grass-type to fight a Poison trainer?
Revy: Call me overconfident—
Amanita: Fine. You're overconfident.
Revy: ...Cute. But the numbers really aren't backing you up. I mean, you were the second-worst person here in a fight, but then Pef ran off to go get her Dunsparce back, so...
Amanita: -sighs- You know, I'm too old for this to really annoy me, right?
Revy: ...Sure. Elysium, Double-Edge.
Elysium: <Shame. You haven't even sent out a Pokemon.>
-he charges Amanita-
-just as Dart pops out of the thicket of Toxic Spikes, lunging for Elysium's throat-
-Elysium tilts his head to one side, though, and Dart's blow only grazes him— -
-and Dart simply vanishes-
-and the real Dart plunges from the air, aiming down a Poison Jab-
Hygieia: <Hello again!>
-which collides with Hygieia's face. She winces, but tilts back like a punching bag, whirling around and slipping out of Dart's grasp-
Dart: <For Palkia's sake.>
Hygieia: <Watch your blood pressure! Let's perform a test~>
-and Elysium charges in again, hammering Dart into the ground with his hooves-
Revy: Let's face it, Amanita, you're just out of your league here.
-PEFE!Every and Atlantis stare up at the Dunsparce serpent, which is easily twice their combined weight, if not more so-
Atlantis: <Any advice?>
PEFE!Every: They're my friends. I know I can talk them out of whatever's happened to them.
Atlantis: <Every, I really feel as though we have the rapport we do because you don't get into your head like this.>
PEFE!Every: We clearly haven't spent that much time together.
Atlantis: <I'm only saying.>
Erasmus: <I recommend focusing better.>
Kin #42: <—No, I'm just saying the lichen crops lately are unnervingly low.> | Kin #18: <It's winter. And you're really not helping our case here.>
Kin #42: <I'm bored.> | Kin #18: <Then help with all the murdering!>
-the Dunsparce Serpent points its tail, drills whirring and sending a wave of sound at PEFE!Every-
-Atlantis intercepts the blast, summoning a Protect shield-
Atlantis: <Seriously, time-sensitive!>
PEFE!Every: Well, what would you do if someone turned Skyfire against you?
Atlantis: <Nobody could do that!>
PEFE!Every: That's not scientific!
Atlantis: <You're not being scientific either!>
-the Serpent fires another Ancient Power, and Atlantis blocks it again, but her Protect shield is flickering badly-
-Halcyon rains down Ice Beams on Revy, who dances out of the way, movements becoming more and more self-assured-
Revy: Come on, Brie, don't be so high and mighty!
Brie: ...Is that supposed to a pun, or like—
-a vine spears skyward, and snags Halcyon, pulling him towards the ground-
Halcyon: <Hmm. Not ideal.>
-Brie recalls Halcyon, falling free of the vine and dropping, releasing him again moments before hitting ground-
-and turning her fall into a run, sprinting back towards Revy-
-she throws a kick at his face, which he dodges, retaliating with a vine. Brie drops to the ground, turning the momentum from her kick into a roll to gain a few feet of space, hopping back to her feet in one fluid motion-
Revy: You're good.
Brie: Learned it from you.
Revy: Did you now?
-Brie runs over the vines, leaping straight into the air, bringing one leg up in an axe kick-
-and a vine hits her across the torso, twining tight and frilling out with spines-
-before tugging her to the ground, another vine wrapping around her throat-
Revy: Well, that was quick. Not your mother's daughter after a—
-the stream of blue energy hits Revy in the chest from behind, and he drops to one knee as ice sprouts through him in violently-swelling crystals. Some break the skin in the front, emerging wet with blood-
-the vines slacken, and Brie struggles free, one hand pressed to a hole in her side-
Brie: You're lucky this isn't the coat my partner got me, or I'd have had Halc use Thunderbolt to finish it instead.
Revy: Oh, you're dating someone?
-he groans, as he gets to his feet, snapping off an icicle that sticks out of his chest. Behind it, plant growth seals the wound over-
Genuinely glad to hear that. I know you were worried.
Brie: You remember that, but not my name?
-Revy smiles guilelessly, a little wider than the average Memito grin-
Revy: I'll tell them you fought bravely.
Edited by memyselfandI2 on Feb 7th 2020 at 1:15:51 AM
Professor Sonia Sure!
-and she does, pulling a chip out of her desk and inserting it into Aspen's Pokédex-
Are you here for a Starter, as well?
-she shifts a few modules on the Dex, wiring in a couple odd components-
Edited by Asterisk395 on Feb 7th 2020 at 4:21:49 AM
Amanita: You can't seriously still be on board with Revy.
Revy: Don't start this again. You're not going to manipulate me out of achieving my goals. Not when I'm so close.
Amanita: You achieved your goals!
-she recalls Phobos, and sends out Box-
Elysium: <Didn't I already fight you?>
Box: <You're thinking of Oswald.>
-she narrows her eyes, raising her tendrils-
<You should be so lucky.>
Elysium: <I'm not impressed.>
Box: <I imagined you wouldn't be. You've cast yourself as a hero, a loyal knight, haven't you? No reason to be afraid of the villain.>
Elysium: <Oh, don't start. We already did this bit, and it didn't work out for your side last time.>
Box: <As I recall, it accomplished exactly what it set out to.>
-she surges forward, dozens of stingers descending on Elysium, every one of them trailing out streams of venom, that coalesce in the air-
Hygieia: <Well, these are just unacceptable working conditions. I'm a doctor, not a sanitation inspector.>
Musket: <You do make a compelling point, but I can't really claim you're my problem.>
Amanita: Box! Break line of sight! Musket, handle Elysium!
Box: This ought to be entertaining.
-and her stingers enfold Hygieia-
-while Musket intercepts Elysium as he charges Box, brandishing her tail like a whip and forcing him to a halt-
Amanita: There we go.
Elysium: <Really now.>
Musket: <I don't like it any more than you do! I'm very pro-flower.>
Elysium: <And yet here we both are. Step aside, Skuntank. You have to realize this is a waste of time for you.>
Revy: You understand Pokemon, right? Because I'm going to agree with Elysium. You're only delaying the inevitable.
Amanita: -grits teeth-
Revy: ...Ugh. I had to fight the one Memito who doesn't like to talk.
"Thanks!" -she takes her Pokedex back and leaves-
-She released Carbuncle and teleported to Monostoke-
-Returned Carbuncle and can be interacted with-
Edited by AspenKarch on Feb 7th 2020 at 3:31:15 AM
Me: I almost forgot! The other reason we came to Motostoke!
Brie: Why is it always plant people?
Brie: Never mind. Halcyon, hit him again.
-Halcyon looses another Ice Beam, but a vine sprouts between Brie and Revy, parrying it-
-ice accumulates at the tip of the vine, as it starts to wither-
Brie: Keep going! He can't hold out forever!
Revy: Oh, kiddo.
-the ground around the vine explodes, and the vine unfurls, having been growing below the surface the whole time. What blocked the attack was just the tip of the new growth, now crowned in dangerous-looking crystals-
You know, your mom—
Brie: You have never met my mom—
Revy: (talking over her) —had no sense of deception either. One of the few failings of a deeply impressive woman.
-the plant mace swings down towards Brie and Halcyon. Brie sprints for cover, recalling Halcyon as she dives behind a rock. The vine smashes into the ground, ice shards flying everywhere-
Revy: Honestly, I feel bad killing you. You were probably my favorite set of descendants, all things conside—
- Revy recoils as a sweep of Dragon energy rakes across him, Ramphyros zipping out of the way of a retaliatory vine-
-Ramphyros strafes him again, and disappears in a burst of red light before he can hit back-
Revy: Now that is just—
-followed by Brie bursting out from behind the rocks, charging in with a shoulder-tackle-
-he blocks it without too much trouble, diverting Brie's momentum, catching her arm, and twisting it behind her back, forcing her into a half-crouch. Brie makes a short, pained noise-
Revy: Anyway, I guess I can always make mo—
-Calamity zips the short distance from Brie to Revy, body-checking him in the chest-
-he's torn free of Brie, arm left behind and slowly disintegrating into vines, and sent flying back with a caved-in chest-
Brie: Yeah, if I can't kill you before you leave I'll at least make sure to neuter you.
- Revy groans, as more vines sprout from his shoulder to repair his arm, and his chest pops back into shape-
Revy: Don't be crass.
Brie: First of all, I'm hardly the one being crass. Secondly, what does it fucking take?
Kim: “The Gym Challenge? Oh, don’t worry. I haven’t forgotten about that. The only question is... when can we get it done now that the first bracket has been set up...? We’ll still need time to practice...”
-another Ancient Power, another weakening Protect-
Atlantis: <Honestly, Every, I don't want to rush you, but I could use a hand!>
PEFE!Every: I don't know what to do! They're under some sort of compulsion!
Atlantis: <You don't generally state the obvious so much!>
PEFE!Every: I'm not usually this panicked!
Atlantis: <I could try Confiding in you?>
PEFE!Every: I really don't see how that would help!
Atlantis: <Would it hurt?>
PEFE!Every: It would divert your attention from fighting!
-the Serpent raises its tail-
PEFE!Every: Step back!
Atlantis: <I think we've reached the point where orders are no longer—>
PEFE!Every: I meant you!
PEFE!Every: Come on.
-she spreads her arms-
I know you remember me. Not all of you, maybe, but enough. You have to fight whatever's going on. I know you can. We've been through so much together—
-there isn't even any conversation this time before the Serpent blasts PEFE!Every with a wave of sound-
