Me: <Alright, let's go find them.> -She tried using her Aura Sence, but she saw some red aura, noting some foes-
Me: <Find anything, Aspen?>
Me: <There are several enemies around here. Let's hope there not mutants.>
Me: <Foes. Yes. Hopefully they will be easy to take out.>

Violet: Wait, you mean the one with the holes in the sky or- Wait, is that egg hatching?!
The Doctor: Rememberer to give yer uncle plenty of liquids and make sure he takes two of these a day. Better hold him down, though. This stuff's rather nasty. See me again in a few days. And remember. Nothing stressful. He can watch the League Arc on telly but that's about it.
Dave: Yes, Doc.

/Duck/: "Context, Forced Evolutionary Virus: This Slip-imported viral mutagen was created in the AU by the Angelan military at some point before the Dragon War. It is unknown whether the purpose was as a supersoldier serum as per originals but whatever the case it was not utilized until centuries after the Bad Ending of the war, where a human named Richard Grey was exposed during a raid on military base Mariposa and transfigured into a Renuniclus-based amalgam. Utilizing the base's ample stockpiles, he created Super Mutants with the intent of conquering and converting all remaining human shelters before spreading through the multiverse via the Unovan Entralink. In theory, variant stockpiles of the Forced Evolutionary Virus may also exist in the following locations: Vault 87 located in the [Virginia-Maryland-District of Columbia] Wasteland Zone, [Massachusetts] Institute of Technology Facility located in the [Massachusetts] Wasteland Zone, West-Tek facilities in the [Appalachian] Wasteland Zone. Context, Super Mutant: Formerly human, these hulking green Machamp-forms are the result of-"
-The exposition cuts out and Duck just sighs-
/Duck/: <Sorry sir, I really need to get better at summarizing. Still, given the virus feels like a distinctly [American] product it seems unusual that a significant stockpile would be in [Russia] of all places.>
Paula: Pfff. Obviously. You weren't subtle with your little typo trick, you know. But, uh, slight problem? The one who you're fighting for is this wet blanket over here.
-Rose clenches her fists.-
Rose: This wet blanket isn't gonna let you take over again. I'm here to stay.
???: Is that so? A moment ago, you almost let Robinson kill you. Almost willingly.
-For once, Rose isn't the only one who can hear the voice in read, because it comes from a figure with a physical form. It appears to be another individual sharing the same body as Rose and Paula, dressed in the tattered prison clothes from the party's visits to the Velvet Room. Shackles hang from her wrists, seeming to have irritated and inflamed the many scars lining her arms. The leer of her bright, golden eyes seem to burn through whatever she looks at.-
-Paula grins as Rose's newer Shadow finally manifests. Rose herself is quaking, a cocktail of emotions between fear and anger in her expression.-
Paula: Ah, good! She's here. I've been dying to meet you, after all this time.
Rose: Is this finally us "talking later"?
Shadow!Rose: There's nothing to talk about. I'm here because this is our mind now. And this Palace is far overdue being torn down.
-There's a slight, ever-faint rumble. It's not enough to physically jostle most people, but Rose seems to stagger a bit, as if from sudden vertigo.-
Paula: Psh. Sure. And then what, you go back to giving her a death wish? That'd be such a waste.
Shadow!Rose: The world doesn't need you. It doesn't need either of us. We're nothing but parasites, feeding off others and only poisoning the world in return. But especially you.
Paula: Really, now? I'd like to see you do something about it.
-She summons Maui. By Shadow!Rose's side, Bluetongue Lizard manifests.-
-And Rose's mask starts to burn very slowly. There's no gout of blue flame, only blue embers forming at the edges of the mask, searing prolonged agony into Rose's face.-

-Trying to follow after Echo-
Ariadne: <What's going on with Rose? Pink, what is Galen telling you?>
Pink: <I'm trying to figure that out!>
-Hanging around the Daycare-
Wonder what someone's breeding all these Toxel for, though?
Hendrix: -Crying- <Tagg, I want food!>
I'll give you some food in a second.
Doc: -Looking at some Farfetch'd- <These Farfetch'd sure do have big leeks.>
Crochet: <And aggressive expressions.>
-The egg cracks-
-H. G. Cross groans-
H. G. Cross: I WILL get that J-Team!
Royal: Uh? Rose? Rose?
Silas takes a step forward, wanting to do something, but a voice in the back of his head, or rather the voice outside of his head holds him back.
"We cannot interfere, we may only perform the duty when it is our time."
Silas grimaced, "I don't want to stand here and let this happen."
"You know we must. Trust me this is painful for me as well! Especially since I'm your repressed feelings so imagine how I feel... oh wait you can!"
Silas sighed, "If things go south we're grabbing and running."
Ribbon squinted, and slowly stepped forward, seeing what looked to be a fire glowing ahead. She continued onwards and approached the edge of the light, ahead was what looked to be a group of Pokemon, a few wrapped up in what appeared to be tattered clothes and bandages.
There was a Machamp munching on what looked to be some form of ration, farther off was a Liepard marching back and forth at a door, finally was a Excadrill knocking at a wall. This seemed to be a service station of sorts, and these Mons were most certainly not very friendly.
Ribbon was about to take another step forward when she paused, before her was a set of cans attached to some rope hanging from the ceiling. Ribbon looked about, the light only went so far, the tunnels were fairly dark, the cans had to be some form of security.
There was talking, and up walked a human in what looked to be makeshift body armor and a helmet, hung at his waist was a gas mask and he held what looked like a cobbled together weapon. His dialogue was heavy, Ribbon knew this language, she usually did better when Silas was there to help translate, he was speaking [Russian].
<Nah, nobody else. Just us, any good sights up ahead?>
"Routes are dead lines, only working one is covered by Flare. Not worth the trouble."
"You're doing just fine /Duck/," Stylus assured finishing his bandaging.
"Considering how interconnected the OU is, and how freely information is shared, maybe [American] research was shared over here in [Russia] and they developed their own strains. The AU is like our world but different right?"
Stylus put the bag back on and started marching again, closing his eyes to use his auric sight and follow what was hopefully a area with as few red blips as possible, "The more I know the better I do. I'm a engineer, that means I solve practical problems."
He slowly made his way further, when he heard something, what sounded like a child giggling off in the distance, the further he went the louder it got. Stylus stopped, before him was a aura, it was faint, it was weak, and it looked like a human kid, but where everyone else had been some sort of colour, this one was like TV static on old CRT.
He opened his eyes, and held up a aura sphere to let the light from it illuminate the area, before him stood a shadow, it looked just like a kid. Stylus then asked /Duck/, "Hey you can see this as well can't you?"
Me: -She ran toward the fire after Ribbon- <So what did he say?>

Des stared up at the large dome before him. He adjusted his Poison uniform with 88 on the back. He thought of Lita, who was probably waiting for him in the stands.
Imagine, a lowlife like me having a daughter in the future.
He doubled checked his team again.
Miz the Stunky
Sniper the Sobble
Baltimore the Corvisquire
Cooper the Weezing
He was sure he was ready. Quickly he pulled out his phone a gave a certain other cowboy a text.
You ready to watch me curb stomp this guy?
Des and his band had gotten set up. He was doing some last minute tuning as Lita hefted her guitar and C got behind the drum kit, twirling his sticks.
Des: "Are you sure you can play that?"
C: "Since I was 12. Actually you're the one with the least amount of music experience here."
Des gave Lita an expectant look.
Lita: "You know the rule: no spoilers. However, you always were supportive of my interests."
Des: "Good to know."
He waited behind the current for his opponents to get set up as well.
Koyasa smirked as Milo's third was sent out.
Koyasa used Flamethrower!
An ugly purple came from the Grass-type and decked Koyasa in the face.
Mulling over his options, Colton didn't notice a blue flash and a second, lighter blue flash.
Helmsman used Ice Beam!
Recognizing the water-type, Bellossom took to weakening him.
Not that it mattered to the Samurott.
The sun beating down on everyone, Milo smirked.
In a green flash, Helmsman got, for lack of a better way of putting it, dunked.
He stood up, staggering, a white light coming from his mouth, the two beams passing through each other.
Cherrim used Solar Beam!
"... There's a second Shadow?! Damn it all!" Rage and Love swore. "I was useless enough the first time around!"

-Pent remains standing there silently, ready to scan whatever comes of this engagement-
Anthem: <Seriously? Are we gonna have another fight?>
-Mimic clunks and just wander-bounces about the room-
/Duck/: <Thank you Silas Grant. Unfortunately without a proper descriptor I cannot determine whether I am 'seeing this'. I need to know what 'this' is sir.>
"The 3D shadow of what appears to be a kid standing here... I see... static with my aura sight with it... and my visual sense are telling me its here."
The Shadow waved, giggled, and then ran off, vanishing further down the Metro tunnels.
Stylus stood there for a moment, "...what the fahck..."
-Maui lunges forward, hook swinging wildly. It digs into Bluetongue's side, earning a wince of pain from Shadow!Rose, and a choked gasp from her physical counterpart. Rose clutches at the burning mask on her face, stumbling and trying to tear it off, but it doesn't budge.-
-Bluetongue staggers, but recovers, laughing. He gestures toward the ground, which starts trembling and cracking beneath Maui. Though Paula stumbles, Rose completely loses her footing, staggering into the glass wall. It shatters, raining glass shards down on her.-
-Maui bellows, hooking Bluetongue by the neck and slamming him down to the ground. Something cracks — probably a rib. Rose coughs, and stands up. The embers have almost burned away the mask, but it still remains.-
-Bluetongue takes Maui's hook, and decides to turn it against him, sweeping his feet with it and forcing him to topple over.-
-The remainder of the mask burns off, but the pain continues.-
-But Rose stands up.-
-She starts moving toward the combatants. First stumbling, then walking, then running.-
Rose: You won't... drag me down... any more!
-And she kicks Shadow!Rose in the side, sending her sprawling to the ground.-
-Physical exertion, as we know, is generally not wise in the Metaverse. Running is generally fine, and necessary; personally attacking a Metaverse entity without the use of a Persona, in contrast, tends to do much more harm than good.-
-And Rose does end up feeling her breath catch. But then she looks up at Bluetongue, or the column of blue flame in his place.-
-She coughs, and sputters out a few words.-
Rose: I am thou.
-The flames respond, or perhaps the body of Shadow!Rose does nearby. It's hard to say for sure, but it is absolutely an instinctual response.-
???: Thou art I.
Rose: I am... Rose Jaide. Formerly, Paula Jaide.
-Her clothes erupt in the same flames. Red turns to blue.-
Rose: Cipher Admin. Team Skull leader. Team Iron agent. Mobius Society ambassador. Now, Asimov employee.
-The flames around her clothes fade. In their place, a blue denim jacket over a black shirt. Along the arms of the jacket are four patches. A Cipher Peon helmet, and sigils representing Team Skull, Iron, and Mobius. On the shirt, a logo for Asimov, white on the black background. A bandana is tied on her head, holding her hair back.-
Rose: I may be working for good causes now, but it would be cowardly to deny my long history as a criminal. As an outlaw. Who are you?
???: I am... your shadow. Your true self. I found the secret hoard of a band of forty thieves, and after their defeat, became the new keeper of the cave. I am Ali Baba!
-The remaining flames disappear, revealing what appears to be a man in an outfit reminiscent of a Krokorok. On his hip, a bag of gold hangs; in his hands are two scimitars.-
-Across from Rose and Ali Baba, a smirk crosses Paula's face once again.-
Paula: How fitting, and deliciously ironic. You know, Rose, "Outlaw" ain't a half-bad code name.
Rose Outlaw: I gotta admit, it's not bad.
Paula: Hell yeah. Glad you see things my way.
Outlaw: I never fucking said that.
-Ali Baba rushes forward, and stabs Maui. Paula sputters in pain, just before Ali Baba pushes Maui into her.-
Outlaw: I am thou. Thou art I. You, me, the Shadow over there, Ali Baba, Maui, we're all the same person. But I am so much more than you or her ever were.
-As Ali Baba pulls his sword out of Maui's chest, he dissolves into flames, which return to Paula's face. Outlaw walks up and plants a foot on Paula's chest, keeping her on the ground.-
Outlaw: Your history is mine. But I am not you anymore.
-She leans down, and plucks the sunglasses off of Paula's face. And puts them on herself.-
Outlaw: I'm Rose Jaide, the Outlaw. And I'm in charge now.◊
-The ground rumbles.-

-Rakash smiles and casually opens his book-
And Rose is the first to attain an Evolved Persona. I wonder if we'll all attain a costume change on evolution...
Anthem: <I kinda forgot that Paula was like... A bad person. Only for a bit though!>
-Mimic laughs, low and rumbling-
/Duck/: <Ah. No I did not 'see that' as it were. However given the propensity for strange things in all these worlds, I would not put it past being a legitimate paranormal event.>
Pink: <Did we actually get the Treasure, or did Ro-Outlaw doing that count as stealing her own heart? Footpad's gonna->
Ariadne: <Either way, I think the Palace's collapsing!>

"Oh." Rage and Love said simply. "Wait, what?" He observed, turning his gaze inward.
"You know, I would have appreciated some word about you being able to evolve sooner! I don't like feeling useless, y'know!"
"Oh, don't give me that! You always had the ability to speak up from the back of my mind! How else did I first get introduced to you?"
"Fine, I'll take the initiative in the future, but this better pan out!"
"I'm guessing we have a new party member. I dig it."
And then the Palace began to collapse.
"Aw, shit. Here we go 'gain."
In two consecutive blue flashes, Cherrim was struck down with extreme prejudice and speed alike.
Lucario used Extreme Speed!
"We're not stopping yet!"
<Little something Roy taught me,> Lucario winked to his trainer before pausing.
<Where'd he - oh...> His eyes locked with Milo's.
In a red flash, Flapple reappeared, dwarfing everyone around him.
Hoping against hope, Lucario vanished in a blue and red flash, slamming a pyre from his foot into the apple as big as fifteen of him
The Dragon-type didn't even seem to notice since a massive gust of wind knocked Lucario to the other side of the arena.
Staying opposite him across the field, Lucario blinked out of existence, landing errants hits across the dragon-type's entire being.
Once again, he didn't even notice.
Flapple used Dragon Rush Max Wyrmwind!
It's not very effective...
<WHAT THE FUCK AM I FIGHTING?!> Lucario demanded.
"This is all new to me, too!"
<Why didn't you just ask the professor to turn that rock into that band so you could D-Max me?>
"Like I said, I've barely known about this for three months!"
<HOW IS THAT EVEN->
"Are you two done?" Milo asked, not annoyed or frustrated, just curious.
Trainer and Pokemon looked a little ashamed, but shook their heads.
A gray light appeared before piercing the apple.
Flapple used Grav Apple Max Overgrowth!
The red faded away, leaving a small Dragon-type flapping his wings on the other side of the arena.
Which someone was all too happy about.
With a flash behind her ear, pink-tinted stars fired, serving as a finishing touch.
"What... the hell... was that red."
<Y-... you've seen D-Maxing before, right?>
"Yeah, two months ago. You guys act like it's a fact of life!"
<That's because... because it is.>
Hey, either I'm going crazy or D/G-Maxing has only been a thing since we patched the sky. Am I going crazy?
