Hooked, pt. 2"Oooh, stupid Ash!" Misty screamed again, "Stupid League! Stupid cocky little brat, stupid Gary " Her tirade repeated over and over as she walked, not really paying attention to where she was until she nearly fell in the river. "Stupid river! Stupid me " she realized just where she was at that moment, and her tirade was forgotten. "Here, again, eight years later " She began to swim through her memories as she pulled out her rod and started fishing, in the exact same spot as eight years before.
"Well, I guess I've achieved my dream from back then," she realized, remembering that she had aspired to be a master Water Pokemon trainer back then. Her team that she used in the gym consisted of a bunch of Pokemon that countered their weaknesses as Water types with their second element. Her Whiscatch could easily beat any electric Pokemon, and her Mantine was great against grass types. She then remembered how Chris had beaten her, and realized that she had no reason to be ma
Hooked, pt. 1The setting: Ash Ketchum is now 18 years old, and has finally decided to settle down a bit. He took the Battle Frontier up on their old offer, and has become a Frontier Brain, operating out of Pallet Town, where he lives near his mother. Unlike the other Brains, he doesn't have a big facility for his battles, but instead uses Professor Oak's laboratory field for his battles. His symbol, the Determination Symbol, has only been earned by other Frontier Brains, namely Anabel, Tucker, and Brandon, when they showed up for re-matches, and one or two others. Now challengers have a seventh Symbol to find before the location of the last is revealed, but since Ash is currently among the seven, Brandon hasn't had many challengers in the past year.
The League, on the other hand, is suffering from a case of the Cerulean Blues. Many trainers are stalling in Cerulean City, where Misty Waterflower has the longest winning streak of any Gym Leader in League history. Fortunately (as Gary Oak proved) ther
Pokemon Legend Ch. 17Once Jessie and James left, the others went back to questioning Jupiter. "So, what else do you know?" Gloria asked, much softer than earlier. "And, why did you join Galactic in the first place?"
"That one is easy enough," Jupiter replied. "I wanted power, and they were offering it. Those are their main lures, power and money, and there are plenty of people who will go for that. Not to mention a lot of petty criminals, some of which we broke out of prison. The Rockets, Magmas, and Aquas were much the same, though both the Magmas and Aquas tried to portray themselves as benevolent and wanting to make change for the greater good, and as you two know, the Aquas were pretty successful with that. And with Archie gone, that element took over, and the criminals all slipped away. Most joined us."
"Yeah, we'd figured as much," Chris commented. "I heard that the Magmas actually directly teamed up with you, though."
"We'd been after alliances with the other teams for a long time, but their leaders
Pokemon Legend Ch. 16They ended up starting earlier than they planned. They were all awakened abruptly by Jemma crying loudly, just before dawn. "Sorry about this," Jessie apologized as she rocked her baby. "She's been sleeping through the night just fine, normally." Jessie tried to get her to calm down, but nothing seemed to work.
Suddenly she stopped abruptly, though she was still wimpering. "That's odd," James commented. "Why did she stop then?" He was answered by a slight rustling of motion in the bushes.
"Crap, they've found us!" Ash whispered insistently. He turned to Jessie and James. "You three, find cover or something, these guys are out for blood."
"Right. Back in the tent," Jessie whispered. She then ducked in, Jemma in her arms, and James close behind. "Meowth, do your thing."
"Roger!" Meowth replied before disappearing behind the tent.
As Gloria pulled on her gloves and her new claws, Chris drew his sword, and for the first time since leaving the island, remembered the second sword that his fa
Bowser's Quest, Ch. 4World 3-1: Yoshi's Island
Bowser couldn't help but laugh as he watched his two sons trying to nab the Cheep Cheeps that kept jumping over the ship. Every once in a while they'd get one, and usually toast it and gulp it down. He had already eaten his fill, and was back to steering the ship towards Yoshi's Island.
"Dad, why are Cheep Cheeps so dumb?" Morton asked after gulping another one.
"Because their brains are smaller than a mini-Goomba's," Bowser replied, laughing again. Both of the boys laughed, too, until Larry started choking on the fish he was eating. Morton hit him on the back, and he coughed out the fish that was still surprisingly lively.
"Well what'd you expect eating it raw?" Morton asked, laughing again.
"I cooked it!" Larry protested. Angry, he roasted it again, breathing flames on it. Bowser was very glad that he'd been able to fireproof the ship as well as he had. Between himself and the kids, it took a lot of heat. "Cook, you stupid Cheep Cheep!" Larry yelled at the s
A New Challenger, Ch. 3"Are you sure this is going to work?" Daisy whispered to Toadette.
"Yes, I'm very sure", Toadette replied. "Peach takes so much stuff when she goes that one extra chest, even one as large as this one, shouldn't cause a fuss. Even she can't keep track of them all." She paused for a minute, and even in the dark of the chest, she could've sworn she saw Toadette smile and blush. "Plus, I greased the wheels with a couple of the toads responsible for this. They'll let us know when the coast is clear, too."
"Okay, cool," Daisy said, perhaps a bit too loudly. She flinched at the sound of her own voice, hoping that no one outside had heard. They were able to hear some voices outside, and Daisy hoped that sound only travelled that well one-way through the box's walls.
"Hey, did you hear somethin'?" one Toad asked.
"Nah, you're imagining things," another replied.
"Wouldn't be the first time," a third chimed in.
"Very funny," the first retorted. "This should be the last load, yeah?"
"Yeah, just a
Bowser's Quest, Ch. 3World 2: Wario's Factory
The ship groaned as Bowser landed it on the beach. "You keep an eye on those monitors, and stay in here!" Bowser growled at Larry as he left the control room with Waluigi in tow. "Watch your back, ok?"
"Got it, king dad!" the koopa boy replied.
"What makes you think I'll help you get inside?" Waluigi spat at Bowser. "I may not agree with Mario and Luigi, but I'm not betraying Wario."
"Unfortunately for both of you," Bowser growled as he trudged down the ramp from his ship, "I know how you get into this here factory of his." Bowser stopped, and took Waluigi from his shoulder, turning him around to stand facing the factory. They were standing in front of what looked like a blank wall.
"WAAAAhahaha!" Waluigi started laughing. "You stupid koopa, there isn't a door there! WAAAAhahaha!" Bowser just ignored him, and began probing the wall. After a moment, he found the hidden switch, and suddenly a panel appeared in the middle of the wall.
Bowser turned back to
Ganon the Hero, ch. 3Everything flashed white as his feet hit
solid ground. Unbalanced, he fell back, sitting hard on what very much felt like rock. Forcing his eyes open, he looked around to see just what was going on. Nabi was still screaming, and hadn't noticed that he was now behind her. "Hey!" he shouted, causing her to lose her focus and fall from the air. He reached out and caught her before she could fall into the pit below.
"Huh? What the crap!" she shouted in his face. "How'd you get back up here?"
"Can I blame you?" he asked rhetorically.
"Now why would !" She froze as she realized what he meant.
"You probably have some magic, now that you're a fairy," Ganon continued. "Which is probably what brought me back up here."
"Well, let's not test that theory," Nabi sighed. "I don't need to have another heart attack."
"Then calm down and let me jump." Ganon backed up again. Nabi was nervous, but she held her tongue. Sure enough, Ganon was able to clear the gap, barely. He brushed himsel
Her CatalystAs she walks through the maelstrom, the words trace upon the tips of her fingers and press into the stone. Every brick, every crack in the concrete, every crossed and angular stroke in reds and blacks and oranges. The drips of the gasoline pool around the base of her boots, slosh as she steps over the burst pipes and the rubble.
So much rubble. So little outcry. The silence of the city grates on her eardrums and the mantras she'd been forced to memorize. The Seers demanded they observe thirteen years of recitation before they attempt to weave their first World together.
But who other than the Seers can claim the incantations that knot the skeins they twist and pull on like reins hold fast? When have any of the Sisters recorded the visions they traced upon space-time and recited them, left them open for critique and discussion and debate?
Which is why she walks through the chalky soot of the smashed city around her. This all
