|"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.

Joanna is gone when I properly wake up. I have a fuzzy memory of her saying she was going somewhere…
Vulp nudges my face and I bat her away, blinking. Pushing myself up on one hand to look around.
Huntress is curled up in Arc’s fur, on one of the free beds. Joanna’s bed is neat-ish, the cover turned down at least. And there’s a scrawled note left on the cabinet – “Museum”.
I swing my feet down and pull off my pyjama top to start getting dressed. What could she have to do at the museum? And was it important and – who said I had to join her?
I pull on trousers and belt them, then sit down to tie on my shoes. Oh, there’s more to the note. I lean over to pick it up and unfold it. “Come ASAP. Something for you.”
Well… that was obscure.
“Arc, coming?” I stand up and head to the door, Vulp at my feet.
She grunts and steps down from the

The staraptor lands in the middle of their camp, bringing lucario running. One of them barks, warning the others back. The staraptor fluffs out its feathers against the cold and offers a leg, to which there is a letter attached. The clan leader takes it, skimming through.
“Who is it from, Leader?”
“From Riku of Snowpoint. He requests a riolu.” The clan leader looks up. “Who shall we send?”
“I shall ask around.” One of the other lucario bows and runs off, seeking the riolu groups.
He asks the riolu and they shift, whispering among themselves. None seem particularly eager to leave their home, the only safe place they know.
Someone sighs from the trees and steps out, noticeably not part of the group. “I will go.”
The lucario glances at her. “Are you sure, Reho? You will probably never see home again – and will dou

“Well.” I brush myself down, pulling a hand through my hair. “This is it, guys.” I have my six main team members out and standing around me; we’re waiting to go through into the stadium.
I can hear a crowd. Is this thing open to the public? I think I remember seeing them on TV before. Damn.
“Excuse me, but you are?”
I spin around. A person – steward? – is standing nearby, a clipboard in hand.
“Which challenger are you?”
“BlueJay Nightingale, from Snowpoint,” I answer, frowning. “What’s this about?”
“Is there a specific song you want played during your match?”
“A – what?” I tilt my head, frowning.
“A song,” he repeats, sighing. “It is customary for the challenger to choose the battle music.”
Battle music. Right.
“And… it can be a

“You again.” Lucian sighs, looking up from where he’s lounging against the bottom of his stand, a book in hand. “Are you sure you want to go through this again?”
“Interesting book?” I ignore his comment.
“Not really… read it all before.” He snaps it shut. “Shauntal sent me it. She seems to think that I can help her with it.”
“Such a pity, I’m sure.” I climb up onto the challenger’s stand, so I’m staring down at him over the railing. “Shall I try and lighten your day, then?”
“Provide a fleeting distraction… I suppose you could try.” He stands up and floats into his box. “Let us see how long you last this time.”
His Mr. Mime steps into view, waiting on the pitch.
“Just dispense with the pleasantries – get on with it.”
I nod and send out Doom.
|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
Gift: Forina's Legendary They followed the absol into the cave, and it led them through dark tunnels that were only occasionally lit up through holes in the roof. Arlette slipped her hand into Aurora’s as they walked, trusting her sister to see better than she could. Nyx seemed unaffected, but still hung back beside them. Arc, behind them, snuffed and then snorted out a small flame, using it as a light for them.Gift: Forina's Legendary by The-ShadowMaster
“Thanks, Arc,” Soise murmured, glancing back.
When the absol stopped, they were in a cave with a huge crack above them; the comet was clearly visible in the dark sky above them.
Nyx looked up, biting her lip. “Our parents’ll be worried,” she said quietly.
“They’ll understand though, right?” Aurora crept to her side. “It’ll be fine.”
“We can always wish for them not to be.”
Nyx nodded, and then yelped as light washed over the cave. “What’s that?”

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
