|"When legends repeat, something will change"|
The words of BlueJay's gran the day before she sets off on her pokémon journey. Hoping to just have a normal journey through Sinnoh, it soon becomes clear that the legends have plans set in motion that will have BlueJay and Joanna struggling to stay human.

We’re between Cherrygrove and Violet City just now. I’ve been riding Absol with Brith, mostly. Joanna’s pokémon have stayed out, as have mine. LapWing and Flare have stayed flying, with Vulpix and Huntress. I think Joanna must’ve flown straight, but we’re having to go by the proper paths. This isn’t a part of Johto that I’ve seen much of, but I haven’t had much time for sight-seeing.
Her pokémon have been pushing me really hard to get to her. They’re getting worried, and we all want to find her soon… I can’t imagine what happened to her for this to happen. I would say it’s not like her, but… well. It’s sorta like when Groudon takes over, isn’t it? Is that what’s happened? Except she’s got the secondary tattoo for that… must be something different. Something new, something stronger. Eesh.

Whitetip was a very caring pokémon, and as a result I found that simply flying away was harder than I thought. Above all else, I was forcing him to leave his own daughter behind. At first I could hear her plaintive cries, calling Whitetip back. His own lamenting replies were deafening, and he carried on roaring ‘til we were far out of range, only stopping when I hammered my fist into his back. His roar broke off and he gave me a confused snarl. He was wondering where we were going. I listened to the voice, but it didn’t give me any direction. I sank my head into his rough scales, bitterly cold from the wind.
“Take me home.”
He moaned. He would never take me as far as Lavaridge without Huntress, but he carried on flying anyway. A rush of pride made me well up, but it soon dispersed when Giratina reminded me he was my pokémon, he should do as I say He was wrong, of course he was, but I was so scared I believed him.
Whitetip began to sing.

Ok… I lost Joanna today. Or rather she ran away on Whitetip - flew, if you want to get technical. She went to the small surgery in the morning, and when she came back, she was... I don’t know. Different, anyway. She just upped and left with Venus and Whitetip, leaving the rest of her stuff with me. including her pokémon.
Somehow got her pokémon to listen to me – I have no idea – and we set off, into Johto.
Don’t know why she’d just up and run, with only three pokémon. I mean, she’s taken Whitetip from his kid. She must have some very strong determination to keep him away from her for so long, just now.
|Heya, guys everything's put neatly into folders and not the main gallery in here, unless it's pictures. It's all ordered as well! Unlike my room... It's also more interesting to look at than my room in here as well.|
So take a look, comment! we love a good comment

I rest on the wheel, closing my eyes. Nothing was happening. This was good. Maybe I should head for Lavaridge again, see how they’re doing. What if I was too late?
Someone steps on the deck and I snap my eyes open, instantly on guard. Just Brith. She glances up and moves to adjust a rope.
“How’re you doing?”
I jump again as Jayden speaks from behind me. Hadn’t even heard him return to the ship.
“I’m fine.” I brush it off, because I was.
“Care for a fly, then?” He steps forward so he’s right behind me, placing a hand on my shoulder. “It’ll do you good to stop worrying for a bit.”
I hesitate, thinking about it. “Shouldn’t leave the ship.”
“Brith can look after it, can’t she?”
“He’s right, Blue.” Brith nods, glancing up as she hears her name. “Go for a flight.”
Dawn talks“There’re the cliffs,” Brith said quietly.Dawn talks by The-ShadowMaster
I looked up from the wheel. Sure enough, the cliffs were appearing before us and to port.
“We’ll tack in,” I called.
Soise and Brith leapt to reef in the sails as I turned us in. Jayden appeared from the cabin, probably alerted by my call. We hadn’t spoken much since leaving Hoenn… I watched him close the door and blink in the still bright sunlight before he turned. I looked away quickly, concentrating on the task in hand and trying to lie to myself that I wasn’t avoiding him.
We docked in silence and made our way up to the cave.
“Are you alright for staying here the night?” I asked suddenly. “We could’ve stopped in Fiore…”
“This is fine.” He smiled at me. “I don’t mind.”
I nodded and busied myself sorting out the cave, sorting out the evolution stones Kentar had brought back.
I looked up as Pie spoke. “It ha
Strange Helpers“Hey, storm’s over.” Arlette shook Aurora, waking her up.Strange Helpers by The-ShadowMaster
Aurora blinked and uncurled slightly, peering through the window they’d been sitting by for most of the day and well into the night. “I missed it?”
“Don’t know how you managed that,” Soise said, nodding. “Pity.”
Arlette grinned. “Shall we see what needs helping?”
Aurora tilted her head. “I su-suppose we could do,” she yawned, stretching herself out.
They left the centre and the town, soaking their shoes and lower legs in the muddy grass.
“I didn’t think it had got down here,” Arlette said, skirting around a particularly deep patch of mud. “Weren’t they channelling it towards the river?”
“It was too strong,” Soise replied, skipping right through it. “They did what they could.”
“And are still doing so. You girls headed for the tunnel?”
“Certainly headed in that dire
Soise's Battle“Hey! Hey, NightGale!” Someone shrieks after me.Soise's Battle by The-ShadowMaster
“Arc, hold up a sec,” I say, turning around.
Arc stops, snuffling slightly. Soise and Brith look around as well, though the pack take longer to stop.
“I… I challenge you. To a battle.” The boy pants, holding an ultraball in front of him.
I raise an eyebrow, slipping from Arc’s back. “You do know I won’t hold back, right?”
“Why d’you think I’m challenging you? No one else around here comes close to my level!”
I snort. He was in for a thrashing.
“So, what rules? One on one, no switching? Only, I am supposed to be somewhere else.”
Like my ship, getting ready to sail again. I glance up, seeing Sayri circling above us. He’d’ve seen us stop, but maybe we should call them down… just so he knows what’s happening.
“Seems fair.” He grins. “Let’s go then – Thelrin!”
And of all the
