TuesdaySilver was having a surprising amount of fun with his partner. He’d expected the entire project to be a vexation since he was stuck with the loud boy, but the more time he spent with him the more he discovered they had in common. They were both very eager to begin pokemon training and despite Ethan’s lack of common sense in Silver’s opinion, he was brilliant when it came to pokemon statistics and information, which was going to make the written portion of the assignment simple. They decided to start with the model since it would take the most time, and now a little over an hour in, all they had made was a mess of paper mache and glue on Ethan’s kitchen table.
He had to admit he was slightly surprised by the lack of super vision. He could never find a moment of peace at the mansion without Petrel, Ariana, Proton, or Archer breathing down his neck, this was exceedingly freeing. Ethan’s house was small and quaint, terribly bare in comparison to everything Sil

Rachelle and Anna cheered while Ember groaned.
“Quil…” ((Ewww…)) he whined.
“You can stay here and bond with Alfred!”
Ember shot the Slowpoke a judgmental glace but didn’t object, it still sounded better than going out with the girls.

Soulsilver Extra: FireworksSoulsilver Extra: FireworksSoulsilver Extra: Fireworks2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Silver hated fireworks. They were loud and prevented him from either effectively training or sleeping. They were nothing but stupid lights and earsplitting sound for sappy couples. And now that he knew Goldenrod was going to be shooting them off all night he was determined to get out. He mounted his motorcycle and took off out of the city and onto Route 34 where the fireworks would be going off. Huge crowds, massed over nearly every inch of the route, met him and he groaned. There was no way he could ride out, or even get through by himself.
Silver groaned again at the sound of the perky voice and turned to see the pigtailed girl running toward him. Her team followed her. “Did you come to watch the fireworks?”
“No,” he grumbled. “I was trying to get away from this mess. But it looks like I’m stuck.”
“Well why don’t you watch the fireworks with us then?” Lyra offered.

Ever the optimist, she threw herself out of bed and quickly dressed in her favorite overalls and shirt that she had laid out the night before grabbing her hat and running out the door. Maybe today would be the day she could finally get a pokemon! Of course she had been telling herself the samething every morning since her older neighbor, and best friend Ethan had gotten his almost a year ago.SoulSilver: The Adventure Begins2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Ethan’s Marill came charging down the street and jumped into Lyra’s arms.
“Good Morning.” Lyra smiled at the small blue mouse as Ethan came running up after it.
“Hey Lyra,” Ethan huffed, out of breath from chasing his free-spirited pokemon, “Sorry ‘bout that.”
“You don’t need to apologize, you know I love pokemon!” Lyra giggled squeezing the Marill closer before setting her back do

“I don’t think I’ve ever appreciated pokecenters so much before.” Lyra yawned sitting up in bed the next morning. “Let’s go find the police!”
They packed quickly and set out to the streets of the city before asking a man for directions.
“Where would the police station be?” Lyra inquired.
“Police? We don’t have a police station.” The man said dismissively.
“You don’t?” Lyra gasped. “Well, who do you go to when something goes wrong?”
The man rolled his eyes as if the answer was obvious. “Kurt of course!”
“The Apricorn man! He lives just at the edge of town, in the house with a white Apricon tree.”
“Thanks very much!”
The group took off in the direction the man had implied until they rea

“What a weird tree…” Lyra mused leaning towards it to get a better look at it.
“Quil quil quiquil quil…” ((This doesn’t look like bark…)) Ember commented
“Sentret tret tre” ((Or smell like it.)) Anna added with a sniff.
“Poke…” ((Sudowoodo)) .
“Sudowoodo?” Lyra questioned turning to her team.
“Fla fla flaaffy fy fy“ ((It’s a type of pokemon,)) Rachelle explained.
“So should I water it?” She asked.
“Lava va?” ((Why not?))
Lyra pulled out the watering can and sprinkled some of its water on the strange “plant”.
It immediately turned around, revealing its face, as it shook off the water droplets. The strange pokemon locked eyes on Alfred, the nearest to him, and attacked.
Extra: OlivineSilver glared at his reflection in the Olivine’s Pokecenter bathroom mirror. His smile looked stupid. Had she been mocking him when she said she like it? No. Lyra-the girl- wasn’t like that. She had meant it sincerely. But why? He forced the corners of his mouth up again in a grimacing attempt at a smile. It was so forced he dropped it in disgust. How had he done it? He had just been mocking her... He hasn't smiled because she was cute right? The face she had made had reminded him of a Pikachu, cute and electrically full of energy...and powerful. Like the Pikachu the Red had used to defeat his father. His scowl deepened. 'What would your father think if he knew how you felt about this girl.' Silver was so shocked by his own though his jaw dropped. 'I don't feel anything for her' he argued with himself, but then the image if her at the fireworks came to his mind. Her awed smile and eyes full of wonder...

The Director jumped, spilling a mug of coffee on the floor. “Seriously kid?” Petrel snapped pulling off his flesh mask of the Director. “What the hell?”
“I…just saw… the.. girl.” Darrell huffed, hunched over trying to recover his breath. “The girl from the Slowpoke Well. The one Archer told us to be on the look out for.”
“WHERE!?” Petrel gasped.
“At the photo booth, where we’re storing the costumes.” Darrel wheezed straightening up.
“Petrel,” Darrel’s brother Darren suddenly strutted in with a Sawbucks. “Oh hey Darrel.”
“What do you want?” Petrel asked.
“Oh yeah, I saw Silver.

Lyra looked up. She had been lost and thought and hadn’t even realized a red faced Silver was standing in front of the gate to Underground Warehouse, with his Fernaligator standing firmly behind him. The Fernaligator nudged him again.
“Hey Silver…” this was a lot more awkward than she had prepared herself for.
Fernaligator kicked his trainer and Silver clenched his fists. “I’m sorry, I- overreacted… I didn’t mean to- to- um-“
Silver’s face flushed even more red, if possible. “Yeah…that. Sorry.”
Another awkward silence.

"No, I just ate an apple I found," the little girl replied innocently. She wore a miniature version of her regular green dress and her flower in her hair. She looked in every way like the Hungary Romania knew and hated, only 20 years younger.
"No, I mean is your name Hungary?" Romania asked. 'Maybe it's just some random little girl' he thought hopefully, although he couldn't really convince himself that it could be anyone but Hungary. The little girl opened her mouth to answer, and then paused; a look of confusion passed over her face.
"I I can't remember " she muttered.
The list of ways he could take advantage of this situation was endless. Romania bit his lip, decisions decisions .

“Are you all right?” Lyra asked the man, noticing his agitation.
The man looked up, and his eyes widened as he noticed she was surrounded by pokemon. “Are you a pokemon trainer!” he beamed jumping up and sliding into the seat next to her. Lyra nodded hesitantly at the man’s sudden enthusiasm.
“And you certainly seem kind to your pokemon.” He murmered to himself, looking around at her team.

Lyra looked around, “Did you hear that?”
“Quil” Ember chirped charging into a bush.
Ember emerged smugly, dragging a Sentret by its tail.
“Ember!” Lyra gasped, “Put her down!” The Cydaquil dropped the poor Pokemon immediately.
“Oh, are you all right?” Lyra asked kneeling down beside the frightened scout pokemon. “I’m sorry if he hurt you.” She apologized picking her up. Upon closer examination Lyra realized the Sentret had been injured before they had found her. “Is that why you were hiding in that bush?”

"Where do you think the people in charge are?" Lyra asked her partner.
"Giovanni would be at the very top. He likes thinking he's above everybody, in everyway possible." He grumbled sardonically as he closed the door to another empty room. “He’d be keeping the workers somewhere down here.”
"You know a lot about Team Rocket, did you fight them back in Kanto last time?"
Silver shoved his hands deeply into his pockets. His reply was curt. "No."
Before she could ask any more questions, he swung open the next door and found the Radio Tower workers, huddled in the corner, and a single female grunt, gazing dreamily out the one way widow of the recording room at the back of Proton's head. She noticed their presence after a moment and scrambled for her pokemon, releasing a Ratt
