Morning came far sooner than expected, or at least, that was what Snowcrystal thought as she watched the sun slowly rising over the horizon, the growing light of sunrise doing nothing to brighten the dark thoughts that still filled her mind. There had been no sign of 'Master' all night, but Snowcrystal knew that he could still be lurking in the canyon, closer than any of the others thought, and yet they could not leave, not with Nightshade in such awful condition.
Everyone was edgy, nervous, and fearful, many of them wondering just when Master's super-powered pokémon were going to ambush them. They all felt trapped and helpless, too worried even to hunt, the thought that there had been no sign of Master not exactly comforting.
Alex and Redclaw had tried to get food for Nightshade from some of the nearby trees, but the sap proved too difficult to collect and bring to him. Nightshade was growing weaker. As a pokémon that needed t

The Path of Destiny
Chapter Two-New Allies
By nightfall, Darkclaw had returned. Blazefang had been waiting by a big jagged stone that was flecked with snow. Wildflame and his other companion, a young houndour named Boneclaw, were also crouched beside the boulder.
The murkrow swooped down low toward the ground, landing on the topmost point of the rock. Folding his wings, Darkclaw looked down as the three houndour gathered below. He began speaking, “I managed to hear two growlithe talking. They say the one with the crystal shard has gone to find Articuno, so he can bring back the snow and restore the land they’ve lost. Of course,” he added, noticing the houndour’s angry expressions, “She has little chance of actually finding that pokémon.”
Blazefang sighed. He knew the trials the houndour had faced in the past years. Food was becoming scarcer, and they needed every bit of territory they could get. For reasons unknown, the wasteland surround

The following morning, Damian told Justin, Katie, and their pokémon everything that they had missed the previous night. Snowcrystal hadn't been happy to see Justin return, but she was glad to see Spark, who, despite the drama of the previous day, seemed happier than she'd seen him in a long time. Ever since he had reunited with Justin, the jolteon hadn't left the human's side.
Everyone seemed relieved that Damian had been right; no trainers had ventured this way, but it was near enough to the city that the humans didn't have much trouble going back and forth between the buildings and the pokémon resting place. All of Damian's pokémon, minus Scytheclaw, were out of their poké balls; Snowcrystal noticed that they all looked intensely interested whenever someone mentioned the Forbidden Attacks.
Now, Snowcrystal realized, they were going to be discussing how they were going to search the library. Snowcrystal couldn't help

Chapter 44-The Start of the Mountain Journey
As the group traveled and got ever closer to reaching the mountain, Snowcrystal began to notice that it felt colder. It was a welcome feeling to her, but she could tell that a few of the others were a bit unnerved by it, and Thunder was constantly shivering. She knew the cold winds were coming from the direction of the mountain, and wondered if the cold had something to do with Articuno, or whether the mountain was just naturally that way. The massive stone monolith ahead of them loomed ever closer, and Snowcrystal hoped that they would reach it by the end of the day.
"There's a stream over that way," Alex called from up ahead, standing and pointing as her fur was whipped around by the wind. "It'll take a little while to get there, but there should be lots of prey "
"It's too far out of our way," Wildflame replied crossly, narrowing her eyes against the wind. "We need to get to the mountain by sundown."
