"You're head turning no matter what," Silas said, a smirk on his face, "Of course that's easy when your Alice O'Sullivan with the red hair."
He looked her up and down, "Perhaps Roxy and I could help with that disheveled look you are rocking, help you rest up a bit as well~?"
-Walking out of the taxi station-
Here we are, the Isle of Armor.
Yew: <What's so special about this place?>
Well, it's got a unique culture compared to the rest of Galar, and Pokémon you don't see in Galar proper.
-Some Emolga glide by, while some Marill play in the surf-
Tangela: -Pointing ahead with one of her vines- <How come that Slowpoke has those yellow bits? Is it some Galarian Slowpoke or something?>
Yeah, they're quite common here, but they're pure Psychic unlike the standard ones we'd be more familiar with. Their diet of Galarica seeds is responsible for their coloration, and also the spicy taste of their tails.
Hitodama: <What about that other thing Tagg?>
Also this place is basically the fiefdom of former Galar Champion Mustard since he more or less owns the island.

-Alice's smirk widens into a grin.-
Alice: You know it. Though of course, I'm not always Alice O'Sullivan when I'm aboard this ship. I can be whoever you want me to be, whenever you need me to be.
-She finally allows herself a yawn.-
Alice: That said... as much as I appreciate the ego boost that comes from compliments of my ragged appearance, perhaps it would do me some good to get some sleep. Especially in such a, shall we say, supportive environment.
Her ears perk again, excited about the announcement.
Silas checked the time, looked to the belt, and then sighed, shaking his head with a chuckle.
He stood up and helped Alice up, "Come on, 5 bucks says Roxy is waiting outside the door for us, we got a comfy bed and you need rest."
Alice: Aren't we lucky. But yes, no arguments here.
-Smiling, she accepts Silas's support and follows him out of the room.-
So given I'm about to face down Raihan, that also means we're going to be doing our last cooking stream for my set with Pokemon Masterfoods. So I thought, why not go big and also make it a bit of a celebration of getting this far. So I'm gonna be inviting everyone on the Galar League trail no matter how many badges you have, to join me for the Dragon's Feast up here in Hammerlocke. I'm hoping to get as many folks as possible, especially our first proper Champ for some food and conversation. It's been a long year since this season started and I'm looking forward to everyone gathering in the same place again.
-When Kim opens the door, the first person she would see is a woman with raven black hair and deep brown eyes wearing a deep blue dress. She appears to have the aura of a witch despite having no discernible affinity towards the Auric Spectrum unlike her daughter.-
Agnes: Well, hello there. It's a pleasure to meet you all. I see you've already made my daughter's acquaintance.
Evelyn: That's right. These are my new friends, Kimberly Bond, Hoops and Ian.
Me: It's a pleasure to meet you, Mrs. Promeneau.
Agnes: You must be the boy my husband told me about. I had a feeling Evelyn wasn't doing the Gym Challenge on her own. You seem to be a very sweet and optimistic individual. I like that.
-Evelyn recites the spell again, but then realizes what day it is.-
Evelyn: I think I figured out how to fix this.
Kim: "Yes, indeed. I am very pleased to make your acquaintance." (She steps inside the house.) "...Would you like to meet some of my Pokemon?"
Paul: <What is it; just wait 'til April Fools' Day ends?>
Braker: "Ah, yes. Of course I can interview you." (He turns to Walter.) "Walt, would you mind setting up the cameras?"
(Walter salutes him, and Braker pulls his film camera out of hammerspace. Cuddles, meanwhile, jumps off of Star's lap and onto Braker's shoulder. Seconds later, though...)
Walter: <Well. It appears somebody is streaming. And they have an adorable Shiny Ninetales with them.>
(Braker's eyes widen.)
Braker: "They do?"
Walter: <Yes. They have just announced a banquet—>
Braker: "Okay, halt the plans. SIGN. ME. UP."
Walter: <B-Braker— please—>
(But Braker immediately takes out his phone and goes to Twitch. Cuddles, meanwhile, looks down in excitement.)

Her tails flitted a bit more excitedly, a decidedly more elated look on her face than the subdued smile from the affection from before.

-Making camp for the night-
Cam: -To me- <You know we're being watched right?>
Yeah, basically since we got here. Don't think it's a threat though.
-To the tall grass-
...You can come out now.
-A small ursine Pokémon comes out of the grass and starts looking at us suspiciously-
Tangela: -To the Pokémon- <Are you like some... Galarian Teddiursa or something?>
Hitodama: <Its Aura... feels like Helianth's.>
No, this is more related to why we're here, that is a Kubfu, they normally prefer isolated mountains.
Kubfu: -Taking up a fighting pose-
Hitodama: -Slightly annoyed- <What are you doing, we don't need to fight!>
Kubfu: -To me- <Monese speaker, you said you're here for us. What are you, some sort of poacher?>
...Well if I was revealing yourself like this was perhaps not the most tactical thing you could've done, especially when I can tell you're here alone...
Magtail: -Flaring up- <Poacher?>
-Raising my hand up to quell Magtail-
If I was a poacher with a mon as rare as yourself would I be bothering to talk with you instead of trying to get you with one of those petrification machines the Poacher or Hunter's Guild or whatever they call themselves use? Kubfu are worth a lot more alive than dead.
Kubfu: -Slightly relaxing- <I guess that's true...>
-Balling up fists-
<Or you're just saying that to lull me into a false sense of security!>
-Pulling out what appears to be the symbol of Arceus' ring-
The Council wishes to reestablish contact with the legendaries of Galar, I and my team serve as their agents.
Kubfu: <Likely... but none of them have the markings of an EX-Pokémon. Why's that?>
That Council prefers we move subtly rather than attract the sort of attention the markings give you.
Kubfu:-Relaxing fully- <I guess I can trust you, not like poachers would know that stuff anyway?>
You got a name?
Kubfu Rakshasa: <It's Rakshasa.>
Alright then Rakshasa, I believe I need to speak with your leaders.
Rakshasa: <The Two Masters? I don't have the permission to show you the way, so you'll need to go through Sifu Mustard first. I'll let him know to expect you tomorrow.>
-Rakshasa then runs off at super speed-
Doc: <...So we have an objective for tomorrow?>
Akiko: <Guess so.>
Star: -sweatdrops- well that escalated quickly. Maybe I should check this out myself....

Oh hey looks like word's starting to spread~ Yeah so obviously it's not happening today because firstly I want to do it after battling Raihan and I still have some prepwork to do but keep an eye on my Chatter and I'll post the exact time and day once I've got that locked down. Also looks like some new folks are asking about this cutie right here.
-She scritches Kamui again-
She's not my Ninetales, she's just hanging out here today because a friend of mine said it was okay. I do have my own (regular) Vulpix and hopefully she grows up to be big and fluffy just like this good good foxen here. Now then, any further questions about the banquet or are we ready to move onto that promised pre-battle meal prep I mentioned at the start of the stream?
She rests her head on Gale's lap, purring as best a fox can and getting a bit cozy with the scritches. <Mmmm...>

-Gale perks an eyebrow at the conversation happening in her chat-
Oh heck yeah, we can do a bit of a potluck about it, sure! I'll probably still make the big central big thing but if my fellow challengers want to do some cooking of your own feel free to bring something along! The ol' recipe archive is down in the channel description if you want inspiration and of course I'm mildly contractually obligated to suggest Pokemon Masterfoods products for your next taste creation.
-She says, her voice smoothly transitioning through the ad read-
This is going to be so good. Buncha friends and fans and fellow challengers hanging out and having a good meal...
Wait, you'd need to wash your hands afterward. Never mind. ^^;
Hoops stands in the doorway of the house, awkwardly looking around. They don't seem to know what they're supposed to do.
Hoops: It's, um... very nice to meet you Mrs Evelyn's Mum
Logan: -blinks- The what?
Parfait: -intent stare-
Agnes: It's a pleasure to meet you as well, Hoops. -to Kim- As for your Pokémon, I would like to see a few of them.
Evelyn: That's usually how it is with these things.
-Abilene grows roses in snow-
-Hiro sets a pile of coal ablaze-
-Megan referees a scream-off between Ceal and Marnie's Morpeko-
catalyticThunderhead [CT]+ made eye contact with topiaryAmalgamatrix [TA]!
TA: Still incorrect. CT: Sup. TA: What brings you to TA: Ah, business grammar. Skip to the point? CT: Hiro's out of commission. TA: Excuse me. CT: Psychic attack, post-Ironspine. Postpone the match? TA: Your first concern? CT: First practicality. TA: Ah, and the other one will forget, most likely. Who must we murder? CT: You're concerning! TA: Business voice. The point? CT: He was looking into a lot of things on the side. Some of them missing lab records? TA: Oh? CT: On several tapes of Chesnaught noises lasting about thirty minutes. TA: Hey, no better encryption. CT: Compliments, yeah. Anything enemy-making? TA: Pokefutures ties, perhaps. How good is your encryption? CT: It goes through a mouse. TA: Nice. TA: Well, my evening's newly freed. Time to go for a walk. CT: i have more info lmao TA: Yet business voice is concluded. Forward it to Castor, I need to get dressed. CT: happy trails! TA: Fuck you (affectionate)
catalyticThunderhead [CT]+ broke eye contact with topiaryAmalgamatrix [TA]!
Abilene: -removing her earbuds- Well! This investigation has been upgraded to priority urgent.
Abilene: -musing- Confirmation that we're pissing off someone...new avenues have suddenly become "worth it". And if Raihan's kept waiting...
-petting the melon- ...can't disappoint the adoring public, now can we?
-grin- Let's go for some excitement.

Silas set down the plates of breakfast, "Eat up," he said.
Roxy smiled and started on her pancakes, she looked to Alice, "Always nice to have a third party join us for breakfast."
Silas set down a omelette for Alice and soon sat down with his steak, homefries, and eggs. "She practically lives here, the least I can do for anyone is make breakfast," Silas commented, actually sounding a little proud.
Hacks smirked and let out a scoff as he ferried plates around to the pokemon partners, ~And you're lucky we're a big enough ship to support this many people.~
"I learned a few things from Gale," Silas admitted.
-For what it's worth, Alice seems more rested than she did yesterday, though she still looks somewhat dishevelled as she seats herself at the breakfast table with the captain.-
Alice: Why, thank you. To be entirely honest, I have a confession to make: I'm a terrible cook. It's a skill I've had to neglect in favour of others. So I'm very appreciative of a decent meal in the morning.
-She smiles, skewering a bite of her omelette.-
Alice: ...I hate to change the subject, but there was a matter I neglected to ask about last night.

Silas quirked a brow, a soft smile on his face, "Oh?"
Roxy waved it off, "Meal time is always a good time to discuss things."
Silas nodded, "Especially as we're still pretty much on duty."
It went unsaid but there was a lingering offer to teach her how to cook. Roxy also gave Alice a sympathetic look, she knew all about the difficulties in the kitchen.
"What do we need to discuss?"
