Nicholas Pendrake was used to many things. Enclosed spaces didn’t bother him, nor did he object to wearing the odd straight jacket. But as he sat up in his sleeping bag and rubbed his back, he found himself thinking that none of it had prepared him for camping out in the great outdoors. “How do you manage it, Alex?”
“I’ve gotten used to roughing it.” Already at work on making them some breakfast, Alex was up and awake and dressed, glad for the canopy of trees and for the shorter distance between them and their destination. “Thankfully, that includes getting food prepped and ready with little trouble. Now you get cleaned up and dressed, breakfast will be ready in a little bit.”
Not about to argue, Nicholas worked his way out of his sleeping bag and thought to himself that the sooner they reached Ecruteak and could sleep in the Pokémon Center, the better.
“Vaughn, you got any clue what’s up with the bo

Everything had a price.
She wasn't sure when she first realized this. When the bitter thought had slipped itself into the back of her head as a carefully guided needle to helpless little balloon. It may have been when she was old enough to wobble unsteadily on her own bare feet. Back then, her and her mother had been on some remote planetshe couldn't even remember why or the name of itonly that her mother worked hard. Worked honestly. There were other twi'leks with them and she played often in warm sun and the fresh tilled earth worked by her mother and many others. There was planting. There was singing. There was laughter. Half-formed memories of childhood they were; things that during her darkest hours she would reach out with her minds eye and cradle them to her for comfort.
In the beginning, her mother smiled and laughed too. She could almost remember the way her mothers eyes would crinkle when she did. She remembered her mothers stories of her home pl

His name was socks
His feet were as soft as rocks.
Because his nails would always
dig into my knees.
Especially when I didn't pay attention when he pleased.
He got so good along with the dogs
We started calling him the catdog.
One day he started to cough.
But I just thought well maybe
his throat was clogged.
He finally stopped coughing
on the fourth day.
I guess it was a coughing spell
but I really couldn't tell.
On the seventh day he started to not go in his litter box
but instead all over the place.
It was odd because he stopped eating
and he sleeping more than the usual.
My mom and I got even more worried and we took him to the vet.
I told myself it just couldn't be his time yet.
My mom insisted that it was true
that he wouldn't be around much due
to old age.
He was around thirteen and I was sixteen.
I held him tigher
because for some reason my heart felt lighter
as I thought this couldn't be true
But I was wrong
because when we reached the place

Cass took a deep breath as she looked up at the Purika City Contest Hall, calming her unsteady nerves. Granted, she'd been practicing and training since her last contest appearance, and the third time was the charm, but still, those small bits of reassurance did little to steady her nerves.
"Cassandra?" She turned to find Edward standing nearby, that same easy and cool smile on his face as always. "You shouldn't be nervous. You'll do fine."
Her expression turned from the handsome young man back to the contest hall. She looked back on her previous two contest attempts and considered them; she'd done well, but the fact was that the other contestants had simply done better. And as much as she hated to admit it, the universe was giving her a message; she wasn't cut out for contests, and there was no shame in admitting one's weaknesses or bowing out when the competition was out of your league.

The harbor at Lilycove City served many purposes; aside from being the berth for many private yachts and assorted state-run ferries, it was a major shipping hub for goods into and out of the Hoenn region. It was a wide, open area, and it was easy enough for a person to traverse it without a great deal of difficulty, especially the public areas.
Alex wasn't too worried about drawing attention to herself as she strode through the harbor, keeping herself firmly on land and among the various central buildings. There weren't too many people around, which struck her as odd, but it wasn't something she was about to complain about. If anything, it suggested that Alexander and his gang would be closing in on her, and in a close-up fight, the odds were significantly more in her favor.
Her cell phone rang, and she quickly answered. "Yeah?"
"You clearly know how to follow instructions. Good for you. Wait there."
The call ended, and Alex tucked away her phone,

Situated a small distance from Lilycove City and surrounded by a small portion of water in the bay alongside the city proper, Mt. Pyre was one of the most sacred and hallowed places in Hoenn, a memorial and gravesite for many a Pokémon raised by trainers in the Hoenn region. Aside from that, it was also a cultural landmark, its caretakers well-versed on the legends of the region and its local Legendary Pokémon, and the wild areas surrounding it were home to a number of Pokémon that could be found no where else in Hoenn.
"So, why are we visiting here again?" From his normal perch upon his trainer's shoulder, ShadowWarrior looked about the entrance to the island's great memorial. "I mean, you didn't have any Pokémon to memorialize last I checked."
"It's not just Pokémon that have been remembered here, ShadowWarrior." As she walked into the temple proper, Alex explained, "There's one man who was memorialized here as well, even if his remains w

"So this is Canterville!" As her Dragonite shot through the air overhead, Cass turned back to her sister and noted, "You didn't mention how small it is! It's charming!"
Alex smiled and countered, "Just wait until you meet the folks living here!" Hot Shot landed softly near the small town's Pokémon Center, and the two sisters slid off his back. As Cass recalled him, Alex continued, "Getting to Rachel's boutique or the Smith farm from here shouldn't be a problem. Worst case scenario, I can ask for directions."
"Assuming one of the locals doesn't realize who you are and calls in the press, anyway." At her sister's uneasy shrug, Cass added, "Hey, it could happen."
"Well, I'm hoping it doesn't. Dealing with the paparazzi at home is bad enough, but dealing with them here? That'd be even worse." She put the thought aside and continued, "Anyway, the folks I know won't be in a big rush to draw attention to anyone, let alone me. I'm sure we'll be fine."

The time and place the falls from grace.
We all walk at our own pace
forever attempting to win the illusionary race.
So I took the time, to sit and rewind....
granted pause to the cause, reflections of the mind.
Years upon years slowly drifted on by...
Journeys left behind slumbering alongside the road of unknown,
collecting dirt and debris, anxiously awaiting to be set free,
but could not flee...no one to save me and turn the key.
Everything has a time and a place within the enchanted space.
A story to tell of heaven and hell...
Realise this upon states of bliss,
In the beginning we all fell--in the end we all shall fall.
Can no longer ignore the ancient call.

From the outside, the Goldenrod City Gym looked like the average, standard Pokémon Gym, a large domed building with massive windows. The inside was little different, with a battlefield, scoreboard and stands. The only difference that helped it to stand out was the fact that most, if not all, of the Gym’s staff were made up of women.
Alex saw little reason to object to that, though it was mostly due to her general dislike of tokenism, and she suspected that if a man wanted to work at or train in the Gym, they’d be perfectly within their rights to do so, even if they did face criticisms from others for one reason or another. In any case, it wasn’t her problem, and her concerns over the Gym would end very shortly.
“Well Alex, are you ready to go?”
A confident smile formed on her face as Alex called out to her opponent, “Ready when you are, Whitney!”

The sun shone brilliantly upon Smith Berry Farm as two of its tenants, as well as their current houseguest and many of her Pokémon, continued the process of harvesting the current crop of berries. As much inexperience as she had in farming and harvesting, Alex was glad that the process was amazingly simple; all she needed to do was pluck a ripe berry from a given tree or bush and collect it in a given bucket. The main trouble, of course, was that there were a lot of berries, and even with some extra help moving things along, it wasn't going as smoothly at it could.
"Herd! Herd! Herd!"
Surtur glared at Winona as he carried a bushel full of Pecha Berries to a waiting cart. "

“Well, Rose, not going to be regenerating anymore,” he said cheerfully. “And that means I’ve got to find another way to be ginger.”
“Yes, but…you’re going to dye it?” she asked. “I like your hair, you know. It’s nice. Suits you.”
“But I want to be ginger!” he’d whined, and it wasn’t like it was her hair to control, so she’d sighed and agreed to buy him some hair dye. Once he had the packet, he’d frowned, proclaimed it to be “not ginger enough,” and proceeded to add some sort of strange alien chemical to it. Rose had her doubts about changing the composition of the stuff, but he’d insisted that it would be fine, and he was the Doctor, after all.
“Are you sure you know what you’re doing?” she asked him, arms folded as he shooed her out of the bathroom.

The lust for flesh
My skin, ripping and tearing
As new life breaks forth
It takes control
I lose myself to the wolf
The carcus of a dead creature
I gorge myself on it organs
The taste of blood
It fills my mouth
I finish feasting
Hearing screams of horror
Instincts have their way
It takes my flesh
Devours my soul
The moon in full
I've lost control
The wolf within me
Begs for more meat
I call out
With a deafening howl
Who shares my curse

For a brief moment, I was a monster
How could've I nearly hurt
The one who looks up to me?
Another sinister being tried to use me,
Not myself, yet I was still there.
She refused to leave and almost caused her harm,
But her will brought me back.
Seeing the fear in her eyes concerned me,
Why did she fear me?
One of the strongest of our team showed
Apprehension whenever she had to work with me.
I still wonder if the brief moment I was a monster
Has taken a toll on her.
I can only hope to know in time.
The brief moment he was a monster,
I had to stay strong despite my fear.
The residing fear lingers on my heart as
I continued walking through the dark.
How I want to tell what happened,
But I didn't know how.
Our leader seems to be noticing my fear
Yet everytime he asks what's wrong,
I force it away and carry on as if it was nothing.
Despite my efforts, my guilt and shame
Haunts me every night while with my team.
For showing love that left me vulnerable,

Glas Clann Tribe, Ancient Oak Forest
Offaly County, Ireland approx. 5000 BC
Nothing could have woken the village faster than the high pitched scream that Saorla, a respected mother of the Glas Clann tribe, let out that morning.
It rang throughout the village, leaving a haunted echo that seemed to rummage through each hut to wake the inhabitants.
"Goodness!" Started Aonghas, who bolted upright from his pillow in alarm "what is it this time?"
Early morning light poured in through the entrance flap of his hut. As he sat, blinking through the hazy darkness, a cool breeze rustled its way in and filled the room, making Aonghas shiver under his blanket. He had never really been much of a morning person, even though morning always seemed to enjoy bursting into his hut each day to greet him.

"Come on, Lizzie! Get a move on!"
Elizabeth Greene groaned with some frustration at her friend's excited state as she caught up. "Kate, come on! Honestly, what's the rush here? It's just a craft fair."
Her enthusiasm hardly dampened, Kate Bell quickly grinned and explained, "Yeah, but this fair is only one day a year! One day, Liz! If we don't rush, we could miss out on something great!" She rushed off towards the site of the craft fair, a large park that was already packed tents and booths, and called, "Let's go already!"
Liz rolled her eyes as she followed her friend, wondering exactly how she could have so much enthusiasm. She didn't see much point in craft fairs like this; what point was there in going to something like this to get ceramics and home-made jewelry and assorted other knick-knacks when the Internet existed, after all? Going about it like this would only mean dealing with bugs and the weather and

"You know the worst thing about being in hospitals?"
"No, that isn't so bad. Hell, I don't even mind the scans, especially considering there's no brain damage. It's the beds. I've slept on air mattresses that are more comfortable." Cass groaned as she felt a slight headache coming on; as glad as she was that the concussion was minor, and that she hadn't suffered any serious injury beyond that, she still wished that she wasn't here, and that it hadn't happened. "I have the worst taste in men, don't I?"
The two sisters were in one of many hospital rooms at Purika General, the elder laid out in a bed with her wounds dressed and the younger seated beside her. Neither looked particularly comfortable, but considering the circumstances, both were glad for what they had.

Aside from being the only port on the mainland that had ferry service to Cianwood City and the home of a Gym, it was also the site of the Shining Lighthouse, a national landmark and a callback to the days when high technology wasn’t as prevalent and Pokémon were relied upon more for the functioning of the world at large.

A couple weeks had passed since Alex's victory at the Sootopolis Gym, and she found herself sitting on the front porch of her home, reflecting on how far she'd come. It had been the better part of a year since she'd set off on her journey, and yet, it felt like it had been both longer and shorter. Maybe it just felt that way, given everything she'd been through, especially within the last couple months, but still, she felt like she'd been at this for a while.
Not that she was getting old or anything, just that she felt like things had gone slowly for a long time, and had only recently started to pick up. With luck, progress would continue, and by this time next year, she'd be well on her way through whatever region she visited next.
