Welcome

Our old universe has
fallen into impossible chaos and destruction, but the Legendaries will save us; are saving us; have saved us. Soon many lives and memories will fill this new universe, this new world, and give it purpose. (Our site is best viewed in Firefox or Chrome.)

Events

It's the most wonderful
time of the year- meaning, the time of Delibird gifts and of winter festivals! And as always, our plot events are still going strong.

Season

winter will be here until
March. Aside from the western Great Forest, which is too warm, and the Desert Strip, which is too dry, snow begins to fall across the region. The chill of the season has just about every area firmly in its grasp. Ice and Dark types become more common as the temperature drops and the daylight fades.

For now, nothing changed as the humans and lost Deerling moved forward, but surely they were swiftly approaching their goal. The Deerling seemed to pick up the pace somewhat, urging her human companions to move forward with greater haste, too. Perhaps she knew they were near.

As Amnisiad piped up from the canopy, both Electrikes stopped their movements and stared up; the younger one jumping slightly as the sudden voice from the comparatively quiet forest startled him. The older one's protruding brow seemed to raise- a slight display of disbelief, or amusement, or some similar emotion- while the younger Electrike's brow furrowed and his eyes squinted.

There was a beat of silence after Amnisiad finished her brief tirade, and then the younger Electrike's body flashed yellow and a streak of electricity arced from the hound toward the bird. It was somewhat poorly aimed, as the distance between them was significant, but whether it connected or not, it made the younger Electrike's thoughts and feelings quite clear.

//Good aim,// The father would say if his son successfully hit the robin; whether the attack hit or not, however, he stated, //Don't use your energy on such a small prey, we've got a bigger fight ahead of us. This bird is one, and clearly still young; the Deerling are many, and some are grown and experienced.//

The father then nudged his son, a silent command to continue on their hunt; the son huffed but resumed walking. The older Electrike then inclined his head to the robin. //If I were your father, I would advise you to be more cautious, and not brazenly approach predators when you are both weaker than they as well as outnumbered. You are reckless. Discipline yourself, if you don't want to meet death early.//

And then he moved on, his longer, loping strides easily catching him up to his son.

As the Deerling hustled forward, Cynthia couldn’t help but feel a knot of anxiety. It was an unexpected emotion, but for whatever reason, she didn’t want the Deerling to take point. Something instinctively told her that it was more dangerous there, and she was worried that the Deerling was so small and frail, she would find a way to hurt herself. So Cynthia pushed forward. First she hurried a bit, to get ahead of the Deerling again. Then she slowed just enough such that she was matching the Deerling’s pace to stay a few feet past her. The signs of the herd were becoming fresh enough that she could still see where blades of spiky grass had been bent, and knew they would find their quarry within a few minutes.

Amnisiad saw the younger Eletrike glare back at her with a scowl, and she tensed her muscles. She was prepared, then, when the green fur flared into a sharp, bright yellow, and she leapt out of her tree with a sharp alarm cry. She dove behind a few of the thicker branches, and trembled. Her audacity was promptly quenched with the presence of the terrifying lightning.

She was silent except for her heartbeat pounding away in her chest as the father spoke again. She heard him telling his son that they had a bigger fight ahead, and a sense of dread settled upon her wings. Her suspicions were confirmed, then, as he mentioned the Deerling herd.

She peaked out from behind the branch, showing only her beak and one black eye, as the Electrike addressed her next. If I were your father... she repeated silently in her mind.

Her cheeks were hot with shame; she knew she needed to be less brazen and more careful. Reckless. She had heard that before. Despite her flushed embarrassment, though, her heart expanded in her chest.

She piped, ”Y-Yes, sir!” and she scurried out from her hiding spot behind the brangches. She cast one last glance at them, the father quickly catching up with his son, before taking off into the air.

- - -

Cynthia jumped and simulataneously flung her bag from her shoulder, grabbing onto it tightly as though it were a weapon or a shield of some sort. She cast her eyes upwards and forwards, concern etched sharply onto her fine features. ”Did you hear that...!” she exclaimed in a harsh voice barely above a hoarse whisper. ”That was a Fletchling alarm call. Ammy...” her voice tightened. After a moment she lunged forward, towards the sound of the cry, pushing plants and branches out of the way as she forged into the forest. She had only gotten a few feet of headway when the sound of tiny frantic wings could be heard overhead.

Amnisiad burst into view, and plummeted from the sky to Cynthia, who immediately turned around and reached out towards her Pokemon. The shaking Fletchling fell into her arms, a bundle of feathers and nerves. Cynthia was relieved that she seemed unharmed, just shaken. But she didn’t have time to coo over her companion.

”Oh, oh we’re in trouble...” the tiny bird Pokemon chittered. She picked herself up, tucking her wings away and fluffing her feathers so they had a chance to rearrange themselves to lie flat. She jerked her beak towards the direction she had just come from and mimicked her alarm call, but quieter. ”Predator, predator!” Fretful, she took off from Cynthia’s arm and flew a few feet ahead with an urgent jabbering of chirps.

Cynthia took a few steps towards her, and she instantly flew to the next tree, still casting worried looks behind her.

Cynthia frowned and pulled her bag back over her shoulders, ”I think that means we need to hurry. Something is very wrong. Let’s rush on!” She ran after the Fletchling, thrusting her arms out to push aside the branches as she kept her eyes focused on the ground so she wouldn’t trip or run in the wrong direction during her sprint. They were close, but were they close enough?

The Fletchling was chattering on and on, a veritable stream of thoughts and words, ”Oh, so much trouble. Two! Believe it!? Two of them! We need to hurry... run! Come on! We have to warn the herd so they don’t get caught off guard and ambushed! Maybe... maybe if there are enough of them... and we are all prepared... maybe we can ward them off... Oh, but there are two... please hurry!” She took a moment to fly up above the canopy and look to see if she could spot the Deerling. Whether she could or not, she would give as loud of an alarm shriek as her little lungs could handle, ”Predator, predator!” and then dive back to urge Cynthia and the others in the right direction.

@Rixie

The first to hear and comprehend the bird's call of warning, were not her intended recipients. Rather, the leading Electrike paused in his movements, startling his son into stopping as well. The two stood stock still to hear the end of Amnisiad's warning shriek.

//That was... unanticipated. I suppose I should have listened to my own advice- never underestimate a prey Pokemon. Son, we may have to call off our hunt, as it seems the little bird is intent on relieving us of the element of surprise.//

//But-//

The two proceeded to quietly argue, but the elder Electrike began to lead the younger in a new direction, away from the herd that had been their intended target.

The Deerling was thoroughly startled by Cynthia's sudden bushwhacking excursion, stopping short as the human woman took an unexpected bushwhacking excursion off of the trail they had been following. The Deerling didn't follow, but... she found she wasn't sure if she should continue on without her. Indecision filled the Deerling. Nyra had also stopped, and was caught between Cynthia and the Deerling, also entirely unsure of how to proceed.

The hesitant expressions and body language of the Deerling and Nyra were so similar, Cynthia probably would have laughed aloud has she seen it. The deer and woman exchanged concerned and anxious glances; then continued to hesitate. The Deerling glanced in the direction that her herd was presumably in; Nyra stared at Cynthia's back as the woman called for and discovered her Fletchling.

Before the Deerling could make the decision to continue onto her herd alone, however, she herd Amnisiad's soft words of concern and warning. //Predators? But- where?// She didn't completely understand, but she felt the panic and rush that Amnisiad was trying to convey.

As Cynthia was turning to explain Amnisiad's communication to Nyra, the Deerling began forging ahead, following Amnisiad closely as they once again resumed their pursuit of her herd. //Two? Two what- my herd?!// The Deerling's soft voice became progressively softer, higher-pitched and strained. Not able to contain herself anymore, she burst into the characteristic leaping-run of deerkind, dashing past Cynthia and Amnisiad.

Luckily for her, the herd was dead ahead and only about half a mile away. In just a couple minutes of sustained sprinting the Deerling was there, bursting through the trees.

Assuming Cynthia and Amnisiad were right behind her- and Nyra would follow, joining in the run if Cynthia began to run, though she fell significantly behind as she was not a runner, she was always in sight- they'd see a herd of about seven or eight other Deerling, and three Sawsbuck. Most turned to stare at the returning Deerling; when Cynthia (and then a moment later, Nyra) appeared, many of the younger Deerling skittered away to hide behind the older.

One young deer, however, stepped toward the lost-now-found Deerling that Cynthia and her group had led back home. //Sister, you- where have you been and why are there humans following you!//

The rescued Deerling skipped forward to the other young female deer and nuzzled her. The Deerling responded in kind, and the two laid their heads against each other's necks in a sort of embrace.

//Oh, oh, I got lost, I was such a fool!// The Deerling punctuated her sentence with a sigh, expressing her pent-up anxiety at being away from her herd and out, alone, constantly in potential danger. //But this Fletchling and... and these humans, they helped me get back. Oh, but-!!//

The Deerling remembered that there was a warning to be given, and she suddenly spun around to look frantically for Amnisiad. She still didn't really know what was going on, other than there were predators! Somewhere!

The rest of the herd stood back for now, watching, waiting.

(If Cynthia doesn't make herself known, not much will change, other than the "sister" Deerling won't ask about the humans and the young Deerling won't skitter away until the rescue Deerling mentions that humans helped her.)

Lore


Sprinting through the forest after the leaping Deerling and the frantic Fletchling, Cynthia was not prepared for when she burst out of a thicker patch of brush and found herself nearly face-to-face with a large herd of Deerling. Breathing harshly, her throat stinging from the sprint, Cynthia’s wild eyes glanced about the herd, and then all around their surroundings. She couldn’t help but feel her heart melt just a little bit as the two young Deerlings nuzzled and embraced. The one they had rescued gave a large sigh and a fretful utterance.

The Fletchling was perched high up in a tree, head flicking from gazing behind one tree to the next, keeping careful watch for the Electrikes. “M-Maybe I scared them away…!” she gasped. After a few moments, she returned to the same level as the Deerling and she shook her head, “When I went on ahead, I saw two Electrikes. And they said they were gonna hunt the Deerling. And they said they wanted to take the herd by surprise and then the big one said don’t waste your energy attacking the little bird and said that they had to save their strength and- and-“ The Fletchling took a gasp. “I think I scared them away!” she then managed to blurt out. Still, she was nervously peering behind the trees and shrubs around them, trying to get a better look at what might be hiding behind them. Uncertainly, she added in a hasty twitter, “I mean… Unless they’re still coming and they just haven’t… gotten here yet. Um… Um… Maybe we should leave? Or maybe we should prepare? Umm…” Amnisiad looked towards the older members of the herd, hoping they had the wisdom of how to deal with the situation.

Cynthia returned her attention to the Deerling themselves. It actually… hurt a little bit. To see them skittered into hiding, away from her. She came all this way to bring back the lost Deerling, to protect them when Amnisiad warned of predators. And yet they were afraid. She looked around before crossing over to a tree and leaning against it, gradually sliding her bag off her shoulder and laying it on the ground in front of her. She caught her breath and slumped towards the ground, the bark digging into and scratching her back slightly as she slid lower until she was sitting on the ground. No taller than the Deerling now, she turned her gaze back to looking at them. "Ammy," she spoke gently. "Please tell them I'm here to help. I'll help protect the young ones. Or I'll help find somewhere safer to go."

Amnisiad glanced at her human and chirped, directed towards the Deerling and Sawsbucks, "Oh... Oh yeah... By the way, don't be scared of my human. Or the other one. She promised she would help, and protect. And she wouldn't dare lie to me, nuh-uh."

@Rixie

As the Fletchling chirped along in her excitable, rambling manner, the herd sort of settled in, with the Sawsbuck and older Deerling taking up positions on the outside, keeping the young ones within, save for the rescued Deerling and her sister, who remained just outside the herd. The sister continued to scold the rescued Deerling in a quiet voice just above a whisper.

Meanwhile, one of the Sawsbuck separated himself somewhat from the rest of the herd. He looked at each human, and the Fletchling, and the rescued Deerling, one at a time. Carefully examining them. He waited patiently for Amnisiad to be finished speaking, and then waited longer for her to translate her human's speech.

Then he waited a moment even longer, as he attempted to decide what needed to be said.

//Assistance is unnecessary-// He began in a deep, calm voice, only to be interrupted by a feminine and stern voice from somewhere in the herd-

//But appreciated.//

//-...but appreciated.// He repeated. //If you have truly scared off, for the time being, a predator, then we are grateful; we are most always suspecting and prepared for an attack, but to have one warded off entirely is... beneficial.// His tone and his words were ever so slightly hesitant. It seemed he didn't enjoy owing anybody a thank-you, but was willing to admit when he did.

//There is no sense in standing and waiting for an attack that may or may not come today. We will continue our journey as planned; we are near the end of it, anyway. If you and the humans wish to accompany us, you may walk alongside us for a time. If you desire to go to the human settlement, we will be drawing close to it, and could lead you the fastest way to get there.//

The male Sawsbuck then made a clicking noise toward the sister Deerlings; they nodded their heads and obediently merged with the rest of the herd for the time being. The Sawsbuck would give the Fletchling time to communicate with the humans, if she wanted to do so before accepting or rejecting their offer.

Whether the offer was accepted or rejected, the Sawsbuck would respond with a nod and then state firmly, referring back to Amnisiad's previous words, //I do not fear your human. But your human should fear us, if her intentions are not as you have communicated them.// As he said this he stared with hard eyes, not at Amnisiad, but past her, at Cynthia.

If the humans were to accompany his herd, he would then wait for them to take up position. He would only allow them to walk beside the herd, not behind it nor in front of it. Once the humans were in position, or if his offer had been rejected, he would take up a place at the front of the herd, and begin the walk in a somewhat southerly direction, at a brisk walking pace.

Assuming the humans had agreed to travel with them for a time, the rescued Deerling and her sister would gradually separate themselves from the herd somewhat, to be walking beside Cynthia and Nyra (the latter looking positively overjoyed, her cheeks plump from smiling and her face practically beaming).

//Thank you for keeping my foolish friend safe.//

//Yes, I... th-thank you.//
