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

The biggest event of the
season- of the year, even- is the Anniversary Fair! We also have a lore contest for the month of November, and our plot events are still going strong.

Season

Autumn will be here until
December. All of Terrene is cooling by degrees; those in Ashfield scarcely notice because it never truly gets cold there, though they will notice the decreased rains and humidity. Winds pick up, particularly in the southern areas. Ghost types are more common this season.

"Oh that is good news, sweet child. My Sawsbuck is usually kind, but can get a little grumpy like the old man he is. We've both grown old, we've become like horribly dried up berries now." The elderly woman chuckled softly, tapping her wrinkled palm against the Sawsbuck's flank to give him the sign to lower his body. The grass deer snorted in response, lowering his body to the ground just so the woman mounted on his back can easily hop off. He then decided to remain laying on the floor since his legs needed much rest.

"Was your trip to save those little fish successful?" She inquired then her hooded, wrinkled eyes opened up widely at the mention of an injured Pokemon that required a doctor. Oh it must be that injured to require professional assistance, or she would have offered some berries. "Then you should hurry, dear. A little one's life should come first before some old lady's ramblings. I apologize that I don't have anything to give for that poor little one, but all I can offer is good luck to you all." She bumbled disappointingly in herself that she couldn't provide any medical expertise since she was just a honey farmer after all.

Her muscles made her shiver slightly when she turned slowly towards the direction of Ashfield, her glazed eyes peered through her sagging skin flaps, seeing the small path that led to the main forest path. It was equally as scenic as the one they came through, but it was a shortcut to Ashfield City and a path she frequently took to rush over there whenever there was an emergency or a need to deliver her products.

"If you take that path over there, you can reach Ashfield City quickly. I just advise you to be wary of the bug pokemon, they are just everywhere in this season. Please be safe, kind child." Adelaide croaked with worry in her tone, reaching out her leathery hands to hold Cynth for comfort and encouragement as how kind grannies tend to do. She was genuinely worried for this woman, but if they survived the rigorous trip up the plateau to save some fish and provide them a better home, Adelaide put her trust in Cynth to make it back to the human settlement without any trouble. If anything, bug pokemon were always skittish, and if all the hopping the cane using woman will be doing was causing sounds, they'll be sure to steer clear.

The Sawsbuck quietly watched the two converse, shifting his eyes before seeing that odd flickering of light in the corner of his eyes again. Oh seriously? It wasn't a forest fire though. Shaking his head to see the lights have faded as fast as he saw them, the deer pokemon was confused before shrugging it off. He still needed to bow his farewells to the lady before sauntering off to his nest to take his well-deserved rest. He didn't want to do anything for a week now after that horrifying cliff climb.

The young woman had, quite unfortunately, left her acquired walking stick up on the plateau, and she only realized this when she had dismounted the Sawsbuck and graciously taken the bucket from his teeth. Focused entirely on maintaining her balance so that she did not worry the grandmother, she chuckled along with the grandmother without really hearing what the joke was. Luckily, however, she caught the next bit of conversation.

"Yes, the Wishiwashi made it safely into a river up on that plateau." And with her assurance that the Wishiwashi were safe and sound, Adelaide seemed satisfied and beckoned toward the direction of Ashfield. "Thank you so much, Granny." The young woman repeated for the umpteenth time. The old woman's assistance had been invaluable; without her, the trip to the plateau would have been long and miserable. "Have a lovely day, and please tell your Sawsbuck that I appreciate all he did."

Not wanting the kindly old grandmother to see her struggle, the young woman waited for Adelaide to turn her back before she began hopping away. She had to do it so carefully; one hop, then pause to catch her balance. Then she'd examine the ground, look for a level piece of forest floor, and hop again, hopefully to a bit of ground next to a tree that she could lean on. Repeat until... well, at least until she was out of the sight of anyone at the quaint little cottage. Once she was beyond the grandmother's and Sawsbuck's view, she didn't care if she fell down or had to crawl. But she had been enough of a burden on that little family, especially that aging Sawsbuck; she was determined to do the rest of this on her own.

♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐

Unfortunately for the Sawsbuck, there was one in this forest who did not respect the buck's need for rest. Adamantine hooves marked the soft spring soil, the cushioned thuds giving away the fire creature's approach toward the Sawsbuck's nest. His immature flames burned brightly, but did not have the extensive reach of the flames of one of his full-grown kin; nevertheless, he reveled in the pointed that his spirit and his body were adorned with flame, while this pathetic human-tool was adorned with nothing more than delicate pink flowers that were surely reflective of the delicate, fragile spirit the equine body housed. His eyes flashed with contempt, and his tone was accusatory as he confronted the resting Pokemon.

//What did you think you were doing, letting my human ride you?//

His face contorted for a split second in surprise. My human? He hadn't meant that. He meant that human. That disgusting, useless worm creature that only lived because of the weakness and pity of the human species. Vehemently he squashed the feeling of possessiveness that suddenly blossomed in his chest. He wanted nothing to do with her- with it. Nothing.

Still, rather than revealing his weakness by correcting himself, he let the question stand as he had asked it, glowering down at the deer that sprawled on the ground before him, his stature proud and demanding.

//Please be safe, dear! I wish you luck on your trip and for your pokemon!// Adelaide waved her hand at the young woman who decided to depart, slightly tilting her head to what seemed to be missing. They were hopping, yes, but did they always hop like that? Her old woman mind didn't remember what was missing, even if it was clearly a cane that they had possessed before their meeting. She continued to watch Cynth's frame bobbing in the distance until they faded behind some of the thickets in the foreground. Hopefully they will be okay, but judging by the path she usually took, it was mostly safe.

The natural forest path that was the shortcut cutting through the woods was cleaned up and well-kept by Adelaide's son-in-law, a frequent traveler who just had too much time on their hands and nothing to do but traveling around. This little project for the path to be swept clean for passerbys took awhile with the help of his group of pokemon, but it did help his mother-in-law to make their trips to Ashfield a lot quicker and easier due to his work. It was like maintaining a garden, except for him, he just wanted to make the place a bit safer to tread in for the old lady who was reaching advanced age.

Several pokemon were playing amongst themselves in the distance, the usual bug type, trilling away and giggling at each other without a care in the world. This part of the forest was barely untouched by society, overgrown by the untamed vines and bushes that grew tall and wildly at varying heights. Since Cynth was either too loud in her hopping or crawling on the ground, the pokemon paid no attention to her, only focused on gathering their pollen quota or just living out their peaceful lives in this part of the humid rainforest.

If Cynth was keen on where she was going, there was a large supple branch on the forest floor, knocked down from either a pokemon or a rainstorm, probably useful for a temporary walking stick. Its bark still held on to itself, but was soaked and coated with dried up mud. A disgusting walking stick for anyone desperate enough to use it for their nature hike, but a brittle walking stick regardless.

Back in the homey cottage's yard of Adelaide's, the Sawsbuck was wandering over to his nest before noticing someone calling out to him. He turned around, eyeing the short equine creature with a mane of flames. Wait, was this the light he has been seeing in the corner of his eyes this entire time? The deer pokemon remained silent while they were throwing accusations, from the way they spoke, perhaps this was a young ponyta.

The old lady however noticed the newcomer in their yard, gasping at the flaming mane as she took several steps back. "Oh my stars, Sawsbuck! Keep that flaming child away from our home, I don't want another house fire!" She wheezed in fear, her eye wrinkles were raised high by her brow muscles to show a panicked stare. It was an odd sight seeing something like a fire pokemon in the rainforest, since they just happened to be so rare around these parts. It was like an omen, so Adelaide didn't want anything to do with it.

The towering deer pokemon eyed his partner freak out at the sight of the ponyta, shifting his dark gaze over to the equine creature and trotted between them and his human. //Pardon? Your human? If the human that is struggling to hop away here all alone is someone of value to you, you should have escorted her during her trip in the night. If you were present before our meeting, she wouldn't have needed me. Be gone, or I may have to take action to defend my home.// He warned sternly with a swift stomp of his powerful hooves into the ground, his steely gaze was a rather fierce one for the sake of being over-protective of his elderly trainer. The Sawsbuck wasn't going to let his most cherished trainer down by ignoring this young colt just because they might seem a bit inexperienced in their eyes.

The path she traveled was beautiful; it was small, humble, and clean; yet at the same time, it seemed completely owned by the rainforest still, with bugs fluttering all about and the forest growing tall and proud and healthy all around. The greens were vibrant, the bugs in all of their varying colors were vibrant; it really was quite beautiful, though she still found herself resenting how shady and dim the canopy of leaves overhead made everything.

As soon as the cottage and its inhabitants were mostly out of sight, Cynth let herself collapse onto the dirt path, controlling her fall so that she landed mostly on her knees and was able to catch herself with her hand. Hopping was not a good method of transportation. She had learned that on her very first day- well, the first day she could remember, that is. Crawling along on her belly was much less exhausting, but it was also much more... demeaning, humbling, and she noticed that it always made others uncomfortable when she moved like that around them. Plus, crawling around on her elbows and knees made her quite dirty, and it wasn't exactly comfortable on her back and her joints. So, there were pros and cons to each method of movement,

For now, though, she wasn't interested in moving. She had only just realized, after leaving the wonderful grandmother's home, how hungry she was. So she sat cross-legged in the middle of the hidden path, shrugged off her pack, and dug through it for another one of those little pouches of a day's rations. Again, the meat was tossed to the side, and she munched on whatever was left; dried fruits and veggies, thick and chewy bread. She just needed a brief little meal and rest, and then she could be on her way again.

♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐

The immature stallion barely spared a sideways glance at the elderly human as she approached and was, unsurprisingly, awed and confused by him. She even seemed to be bordering on hysteria. He gave a derisive snort and put her out of his thoughts, once again focusing his gaze solidly on the buck before him as he awaited a response to his demands.

The Sawsbuck's response was indirect, and was weaved into an accusation and a threat; he responded to the latter by taking a step backward- not in submission, however- stomping his front hoof and producing a throaty squeal. //Value? That severed human looks like some beast's unfinished meal, I don't "value" it in the slightest. I am merely... attached to it, by some cruel trick of the gods.// The word attached was drawn out and dripping with disgust as he spoke it. //I do not submit to being a pet or tool of anything... unlike you, who clearly have.// His neck snaked forward and he bit the air, teeth coming together with a loud snap.

//Your spirit is weak, equus.//

The forest was still quite with the occasional bug chattering about with their fellow friends. They didn't need to bother the lone human eating by her lonesome, since they got something better. Flowers! Oh the glorious flowers that can be harvested of their nectar, it was the best to eat on a summer's day. One of the combee that was busy fluttering by stared at the woman for a brief moment, before zipping through the underbrush to follow after his group. As the scene was peaceful, unfortunately for the old woman's house, it was quite different.

The Sawsbuck grew impatient as the ponyta didn't seem to move on, his brows furrowed while the old woman continued to whimper in fright behind him. Fire was just such a dangerous element, especially for her house with the thatched roofing that can easily turn her home into a pile of ashes. Every second passed with this flaming horse present, it only made Adelaide grow warier. "Sawsbuck, please. Just... Make him leave." The old woman croaked, her voice riddled with discomfort and worry for her livelihood and her family still inside the house.

Flitting his gaze back at the pale horse with the embers crackling away from their flaming mane, the grass deer huffed when the colt began to growl at him in a challenge. Challenge? If he did anything, he would easily floor this guy and maybe even have a dead horse at their feet. The Sawsbuck didn't want to kill anyone, even if they could be a danger to his home and owner. //I can't believe I'm dealing with this.// He grumbled with a sour expression, inhaling in his breath deeply before plucking a blade of grass to clamp at his lips.

A soft, mellow melody began to whistle through once he began to play this makeshift instrument, filling the air and the area around him that soothed the old woman's nerves down. Oh it was that grass whistle again, the woman thought while sleepily nodding off while clutching to her broom. The Sawsbuck wanted to try putting this immature stallion to sleep, so he can just drag them out somewhere in the forest and leave them. Fighting this one would risk his life, or worse, cripple him gravely to live out his life in suffering. The deer pokemon, even if annoyed by their presence, had no ill qualms to subject them to such a fate and decided to try lulling their aggression instead. It worked on the little grandmother's children, why can't it work on this ponyta?

Lunch went by uneventfully, for which the young woman was grateful. She kept anticipating that a dark, red-eyed, fanged beast would melt out of the daytime shadows of the forest, growling and barking and baring its teeth; but it never happened. She hoped that the meat she had tossed to the side wouldn't attract any predators to the area, at least not until she was free and clear. She finished the small, but heavy meal rather quickly, took a swig out of the water bottle she had been provided by the Professor, and then tucked everything back into her pack.

She decided she would crawl; Augustus would be displeased at the filth she brought back to the shop and the coop, but she was tired and sore and did not feel like hopping the entire way back to the city. Besides, she'd probably be stopping at the Professor's laboratory first, to return the supplies and to ask about a doctor. Perhaps at one of those stops she'd be able to clean herself off a bit.

There was no time to worry about that now, though. Now she had to be focused on moving quickly, building her momentum. The puppy Pokemon was probably safe in the stasis of the pokeball, but there was no sense in dawdling. Getting help for the pup quickly needed to be her priority and focus.

♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐♐

His words and accusations seemed to rile no reaction from the Sawsbuck; of course, this only proved his point. The deer's spirit was weak. The grass-type's life revolved around the orders given to him by a withered old human. It truly was the most pathetic thing that the Ponyta had ever had the displeasure of witnessing. A beast meant to be wild, to rule the forests, separated from his herd, his free will and spirit removed from him.

As the first few notes of the Sawsbuck's melody reached his ears, the Ponyta knew what was happening. His eyes rolled, the whites of his eyes displaying either anger or fear or both. He would not be brought down by such a creature! He would not be forced to submit to the Sawsbuck's will, nor the old woman's, nor the cripple's! Stumbling forward as the melody invaded his brain, infecting it with a false sense of exhaustion, the fire pony threw his weight at the equine that was more than twice his own stature.

If his attack hit, he would bounce off the larger equine's mass and tumble to the jungle floor, his legs barely managing to work well enough to slow his fall. If the Sawsbuck dodged his tackle, he would stumble forward, tripping over his own hooves. Either way, the result was the same: he tumbled to the ground, landing on his side, flames low as he unwillingly submitted to the powerful sleep that was inflicted upon him.

The Sawsbuck watched the flaming colt lull into drowsiness, the music clearly having its effect by the way they were nodding off. Their slowly movements were easier to detect now, seeing how they were charging in for a tackle but the deer pokemon simply made a few steps to the side so they will take a tumble onto the jungle floor. They were out like a light, the elderly deer snorted softly and nodded to their partner that everything will be fine.

The two had an understand what the tall deer pokemon will do next, trying to gently push off this pokemon into the forest where it should be and no where near their little cottage in the middle of nowhere. The old Sawsbuck only hoped the Ponyta got the rest they needed to clear their head while he tried to make his travel to some isolated part of the woods, and if the Ponyta haven't woken up from that, he would have just left them in the middle of the natural path they were on and hopped back home.

Still keeping their serenity and verdant beauty, the forest's pokemon that were mostly bugs at the moment continued to keep to themselves, while one or few curious ones would stare at this crawling human that was pulling themselves forward on the path. It looked like they were swiftly climbing up a side of a mountain, but instead on the ground. An amusing sight to those who were watching this human from a far, at a comfortable distance since they didn't want to alarm this human - a strange creature in the eyes of the wild pokemon.

The well taken care of path continued to stretch out, but the diminishing clusters of trees after awhile of quick crawling signified that Cynth was drawing closer to the settlement of Ashfield. Stumps left alone with fungi taking hold of their remains were scattered in the widening clearing, less pokemon were present in the trees except for the occasional bird pokemon roosting for a little break. Before long, there were people just walking about taking care of their daily routines and businesses, some even staring over to see this crawling woman approaching the settlement's borders but disregarded it to get back to their work.

It was a long trip, but they finally made it to the outer parts of the city of Ashfield, the distant chatters of the residents were up and around the air while they mingled or even argued with each other. This was no longer the wilderness that had the frightening threat of the wild creatures with unpredictable actions, no. Cynth was finally safe, at least for now.
