Oh gosh, this took far longer to decide than I'd anticipated! I am so sorry my babes!! It was just such a hard choice! Every single entry was amazing in it's own right, and we waffled between a couple of them for several days, reading and re-reading them to figure out what we felt worked best, not only as a whole story on it's own, but worked well with the overall plot.
And so, without further ado, our winner, and official canon take down of Bastinite Basilisk is:
Congrats sweetie!! You really captured the struggle of battling with a counterpart senshi! Well done!! We hope your babe is ready for whatever may come next!! <3333
Also, we just want to throw out a fabulous honourable mention to

Elanor had regrets. Many, many regrets.
While many of them regarded past actions, life decisions, paths not taken, at the moment, all of them were the fact that she should have pretended to sleep through Jun's announcement. Certainly Amethyst Dragon would have understood. Or she could have head her headphones on, as she often did when she was watching Bucky videos on YouTube. Or, she could have quick hopped in the shower, and pretended she was in the middle of shaving her legs and didn't hear anything over the water. And her Spotify playlist.
But none of that happened, and as a result, she was in the same room with Jun. Of all the Not-Buckys she had ever encountered, Jun was #1. Even though Frankie had repe

Blue eyes narrowed at the small black ball that glinted under the bright light. Bryce's brow furrowed in though as he held up one of the tiny orbs that had been found during the banquet ruckus. He'd been studying them for the last while, and every test he'd run had come back the same. It just didn't make any sense to him. He hadn't wanted it to be true, but after months of testing and testing and retesting and MORE retesting....there was no mistaking it. And it bothered him to no end.
Gentle hands rubbed at the back of his neck and he let out a sigh, glancing over his shoulder at his wife. She had been watching him countless nights as he triple and quadruple checked, and his findings and frowns made her worry.
"Ar' ye sure?" her melodic voice was soft with concern.
Slowly Bryce nodded and handed over the object for her to examine. "Black Pearl," he stated definitively. Given his profession and his role here in the Crystal Caverns, he'd been working extensively with the crystals produced here and knew each and everyone one like the back of his hand. But this one, this one wasn't born of the Caverns. That much he was sure of.
Estella's lips pressed together as she folded her fingers around the small orb. Her eyes met his and a shiver ran up her spine, "But tha' would mean.....how could tha' be?" She didn't outright say it, but he knew full well what she meant.
"That's what's bugging me about this," the blacksmith leaned back in his chair and folded his arms across his broad chest, "There's TWO types between all these. Those ones there," he nodded to a pile on the left side of his desk, "straight up Black Pearl, could have been carved right from the Caverns themselves. But those ones there," he gestured to another pile on the right, "Those are not QUITE
right. They're Black Pearl, yes, but something about them is just slightly off, like they were manufactured...copied...not organically grown."
"Manufactured?" the Unicorn senshi's frown deepened, "But why? How?"
Bryce shook his head and let out another exasperated sigh, rubbing at his tired eyes, "That I don't know."
Stella's mind reeled. All of this just brought up more questions and concerns. Where had the other pearls come from? Why were they different? Was it possible they all belonged to the same person? If so then...but what if they didn't? Could someone have been using them as a ruse?
Either way...it certainly meant one thing...things were not all that they seemed within the ranks of Crystal Senshi. Amethyst Dragon needed to be informed.
Before she could make her way out the door, the alarms went off and Jun's voice broadcast throughout the Caverns.
"ATTENTION ALL SENSHI, A JOKER HAS BEEN SPOTTED IN O'AHU! I REPEAT! BASTINITE BASILISK HAS BEEN SPOTTED IN O'AHU WREAKING HAVOC IN HONOLULU! ALL AVAILABLE SENSHI REPORT FOR DUTY AND IMMEDIATE DEPARTURE! THREAT IS TO BE NEUTRALIZED AND BROUGHT BACK ALIVE!"
