what's that ?

what would you like to do ?


a bird? a plane...?
a bird. big bird.


the summer has been a steamy one, to say the least. the leaves of the trees are heavy, weighed down by the most recent rain that has only just now passed. above, the dark clouds are still knitted together, but just faint light filtering through what holes there are permits a rainbow to grace the sky. the island, once hushed as the storm rolled through- the silence only broken by wild thundercracks- now begins to pick back up. evening begins to fall and kricketots are out singing their tune as various bird pokemon chirp their last songs of the day.

and then all goes silent as if in anticipation.

a cry rips through the air and, as if out of nowhere, glowing light trails behind a body propelling itself gracefully above. what was likely only moments stretches on for an eternity as elegant wings carry the fire bird further and further. higher than even mount mosaic, the creature makes its way steadily across the island before disappearing as only a figment of your imagination. with it, the rainbow disappears without a trace.

inside its glass case, the feather so carefully preserved as a symbol of the island's prosperity trembles slightly. those who see the legendary bird, wherever they were, whatever they were doing, are certain not to forget it anytime soon and leave the experience feeling blessed.

I AMGROWN

i am not a maiden in need of defending

madison was in the park with donner and blitzen, throwing a rubber ball for the two to fetch. it was humid and hot, but the electric-types had a lot of energy to run off. as the sun set, it became slightly more tolerable, and as the manectric and shinx fought over the ball, she plopped down on the grass, glancing up at the clouds. a gyrados, a voltorb... the clouds drifted lazily across the blue sky.

then everything went silent.

madison shot up, whistling for her pokemon, but something above caught her eye. a bird, tiny in the sky, but illuminated by heavenly light crossed the expanse. madison gasped, her jaw dropping. was that... ho-oh?

donner yipped, bringing her back to earth. the legendary disappeared, the rainbow being it fading back to blue. "did you see that, boy!?" she squealed, childish in her excitement over the incredible experience. this was a once in a lifetime encounter, and madison could never forget something like it.

the birds in the park returned to their previous sunset song, and blitzen nudged her hand. "fine, i'll throw it one more time!" she laughed, tossing the ball for the two pokemon and looking back up at the sky.

So that was this island's guardian spirit.

It went without saying that Ariadne had grown up with the deities that protected each island in Alola. It was with both respect and total acceptance that the Tapu spirits were built into an Alolan's daily life. They were special and everyday at the same time.

Out here though, people referenced mystical pokemon far less, Ari thought. They didn't talk about the guardian spirits of the region as if they'd ever actually see them. Ari had taken that in her stride until this stormy, sultry afternoon as the sunlight finally broke through the clouds...

It felt like a gift, that Ari happened to have been looking up at the sky at the right time. If she hadn't, the beautiful fire bird could easily have escaped her notice. But Ari held her breath until Ho-Oh was gone and, when it was, touched her hand to her breastbone and the heart that beat behind it.

This was why she had faith.

Evolving Ari's Combee into Vespiquen, thank you and congratulations!

To be honest, Jenson could be a little bit in his own world when jogging, focusing far too firmly on his pace and breathing, gaze dead ahead as he concentrated on keeping momentum despite the burning in his lungs or the sweat dripping off the back of his neck. He missed the few gasps from other islanders, ignoring how some of them pointed up into the sky, completely absorbed within his bubble that he almost missed the spectacle flying overhead in favour of pushing his muscles onwards. It wasn’t until he almost tripped over Haku, his exercise partner for the day who had come to a rather abrupt stop almost dead centre in front of him, that his focus was broken. He had to weave around him in an awkward hopping motion to get out of the way of his dancing Axew.

What’s gotten into you?” He asked the dragon, feeling somewhat frustrated until he followed where Haku was looking, his pokemon hopping up and down and mimicking other members of the public, pointing up towards the clouds in a way that Jenson couldn’t help but follow, his sharp frown trailing up towards the warm summer sky. Almost immediately his expression slacked with near comical jaw-dropping speed, his eyes widening and mouth parting ever so slightly, forgetting to breathe as he froze still. “Holy sh...” Appropriate words, perhaps, considering there was a legendary bird soaring blissfully through the sky in a spectrum trail. Ho-oh. Jenson was somewhat used to the concept of deities, the Tapu’s were a strange combination of mystical and familiar back on his own birth island, however there was something otherworldly about seeing the Johtonian legendary nonchalantly gliding overhead, like it thought nothing of the gawping masses on the ground.

They watched the bird soar until it threatened to disappear out of sight, his shiny companion suddenly breaking off into a run down the path, eyes up, as if trying to keep the bird in his sights. Wiping his forehead, Jenson cracked a grin and took off after the Axew, catching up to Haku with a couple of longer strides before the two of them fell into pace beside one another, looking like they were chasing rainbows together.

Such a dreary day. It was just after another long day at work when he decided to just take a stroll around town with nowhere in particular in mind. If there was one thing he liked about rain, it was what came after. That period of peace and quiet that came after. His hands were slipped into his pockets with a cigarette at the edge of his lips. The smoke rose off of it and wavered just behind him as he strolled along the pathway.

It was when the cloudy sky parted and the sun began to shine on the island that he decided it was probably time to turn around and head back to the dorm. It was a dull experience really, but it was quiet moments like these that helped him keep his sanity together in the thick of his chaotic life. He turned, but a cry in the air caught his attention. It didn't sound like any pokemon he had ever heard of.

He looked up to see the majestic creature that conquered the skies. A colourful rainbow accompanied it as it graced the island with its presence. He watched for as long as he could see the creature, thrown into both awe and bemusement. The creature disappeared almost as quickly as it appeared.

His mind searched the archives of his knowledge as he tried to recall any sort of information that could identify the creature. Once he decided on an answer, his shoulders relaxed as a strange feeling overcame him. He could not explain this sensation, but he would spend the rest of the day trying to shrug the foreign emotion off with one simple explanation:

"Probably just a talonflame..."

It was rare for a storm to be bad enough for Ciro to be talked into shelter, but this one had Sayre all in a fuss. Alder had been happy to take her place around his shoulders while the espeon instead pressed herself as far away from the violent pattering of rain on cement as she could manage. Resting in an alcove in the city while he waited for the moment to pass, Ciro finally began to frown instead of speaking in soothing tones to the eeveelution. Just as he was starting to think the whole day was going to be washed away by summer rain, sunlight broke through the clouds.

There was no hesitation. He started to move, eyes up in the clouds more than where he was going. When he saw it, the man nearly tripped.

"Look. Look look look-" His sneakers made an awful sound as they slid across the wet cement, but it didn't stop him from pointing towards it, desperate for Alder and Sayre both to see it. The dratini's face was practically pointed in the direction he was pointing, head just over his shoulder, and the creature crooned softly.

Whether or not his espeon had seen the same view, he couldn't tell as he felt her slide past him, edging up against his leg on her way to take the lead while she could.

Arm slowly falling to his side, Ciro took a glance around him before he stumbled forward after Sayre. Maybe he was just more homesick than he'd realized.

Gabe stuck his head tentatively out of his window, trying to ascertain if it was really done raining. The problem was that his apartment didn't have the largest of windows and, the moment that they saw their trainer leaning out of the window, all of his pokemon wanted to join in with the fun. Dancer stuck his flower-bedecked head the furthest out, making the most of his long, Deerling neck, while Cirrus just got madly in the way as per usual by nestling into his pink hair. Peaches waved her arms excitedly from where she was being held in Gabe's arms.

Freya, of course, was too wise to get involved.

"What do you think, guys?" Gabe asked as he squinted up at the sky. "Do you think it's safe to go out now?" But the question died on his tongue and, for once, his entire brood was quiet and still as they all watched the golden shape wing its way across the sky?

Of course it took a legendary pokemon to make his team be calm.

he'll give pari some credit, she's not nearly as much of an idiot as donnie is. they both do a lot to prove the stereotype of purebreds as morons, don't get him wrong, but there's a lot that doesn't get past her.

something outside prompts a look up and a look of concentration he honestly hasn't seen before on her usually-dopey features. she stands, which is usually a harbinger of impending destruction of something or other, but -

"what is it, sweetheart?" he pulls out both earphones. he didn't hear anything.

it's something in the air, certainly, from the way she rears up to put her forelegs on the windowsill and crane her neck up to listen harder. but whatever it was, it's gone by the time sam makes it to the window to check.

she gives a soft whine. he pats her head and twists his arm to avoid the lick that she attempts to give him.

whatever it was, she seems happy. he's not about to complain.

there's a massive squawking sound coming from outside his window one evening, and remi can't even hear it. earbuds are in his ears, jamming away to music as he actually makes an attempt at studying (you know, since the exam is tomorrow.)

niq doesn't let it go unnoticed though. the espurr, his dead, creepy gaze turning towards the window, opens the window telepathically, eyes glowing. remi is roused by this and he takes the earbuds out, hearing the deafening cry of something coming from outside.

getting up to peek out the window, he notices a giant golden bird flying over the mountain. "whoa, niq, that's the biggest bird i've ever seen!" he exclaims, looking at it in awe, an awe that he can't really describe. "don't wanna think about how big its shits are though. imagine cleaning that up, niq. imagine."

CHASING THE SUN

happiest birthday to prismatic!! claiming a future evolution for rica, livia's fletchling. <3

Livia's setting up her painting supplies to paint the rainbow when it happens. Rica and Noe are suddenly aflutter, with Noe trying to paw her way up the girl's legs and Rica knocking over a cup of water while she swoops about.

"What's gotten into you two, you were just about to nap- oh."

She spots the beautiful orange bird soaring through the sky, a rainbow in it's wake. Her mind flashes to the shrine in the nature preserve and she realizes just what she is seeing.

Holy Magikarp it's Ho-Oh.

The Pokemon's gone by the time she gets her bearings, but she quickly sits herself down and begins to paint from memory. Livia glances at Rica then, who is still puffed up and staring after the legendary bird.

"Don't worry, bub- you'll get there eventually."

The real question to be asked Where have I been?
What did Mikhail do to see such a marvelous sight?

Mikhail mind run amid with hundred of thoughts as he sees a golden glow fly across the sky in a streak of a rainbow behind it. It felt like an eternity that he saw anything truly beautiful in this world. It was worth the wait.

Mikhail heard of the legends of Ho-oh, who hasn't? But Mikhail in that moment before the flying sun Pokemon flew out of sight, Mikhail pressed his hands together in a sort of prayer, and made his wish, as anybody who knows Ho-oh legends is that seeing it grants any and all wishes. Mikhail doesn't wish for money, power, or anything like that, he wishes that he could see his sister again, he misses her. And wants nothing more than to see her again.

And with that Ho-oh was gone beyond the clouds.

AND LAUGH UNTIL OUR RIBS GET TOUGH
She's lounging near a pool in a bikini, her entirely body aglow with the sun which seems to reflect off of her porcelain-white skin and a book clasped lazily in her hands. sunglasses frame her face and her hair is a messy bun pulled haphazardly atop her head when she sees... no, hears.

it is first a frightened cry, and then an excitable squeal which morphs into staccato, high-pitched bleats curtesy of her popplio which dives in and out of pool water. she's splashing over the sides, and evelyn steals a curious glance in her direction before the blue seal-like pokemon finally strikes evelyn's exposed leg with water in a frenzied attempt to get her trainer's fullest attention. at first, she had thought something was terribly wrong. her pokemon never acted in such a manner before! sure, belle was the excitable type, but never to this extent. she'd leaned forward then, a hand raising to adjust her sunglasses towards her pokemon until she felt her body forcing her to look up.

it wasn't as though she had this instinct like some people would tell you. it wasn't as though something told her she should be doing this. no. whatever force which compelled her body to look to the heavens was unconscious and nearly supernatural by nature; the clouds acting as a magnet which pulled her eyes in its direction not by mere coincidence or instinctual feeling, but a feeling as unwavering and unavoidable as the physical properties their world abided by. and it's only then that she sees it, and she fathoms that perhaps, perhaps it was the power of this puppeteer which had controlled her marionette body in such a manner.

she gasps. and then she stares. motionless, soundless, as the being seems to just float past on wings as magnificent as its legacy. a ho-oh.

she had heard the tales. the fables, the legends, the stories of the mighty ho-oh, and how one was supposed to make a wish in that very moment for the opportunity to meet this illusive pokemon came once in a lifetime. but though that familiar mantra (make a wish, make a wish!) from her childhood played in her subconscious, it was difficult for her mind to catch up to what was happening.

her fingers which had moved her glasses off of her face quivered, and then she smiled something great and magnificent. and when her mind finally came to, her hand knit through her hair and she squeezed her eyes shut.

i wish...

happy birthday!

the summer storms had samir feeling nostalgic. castelia had a much milder climate, but living on hueport had made him start thinking more and more of his childhood island home. some of his pokemon seemed less fond of the rain, and though he'd try to get them all to participate in a training session in the rain, most of them were all huddled under the small awning of the rest stop. the only ones willing to venture out was his dewpider and his precious sumayya. it wasn't really as if the poor cascoon had a choice, held snugly under samir's arm, but she'd been the only one who'd shown any sign of willingness when he mentioned training.

hoping it might inspire his other pokemon to join instead of watching warily, safe from the rain, he had the cascoon and the dewpider start sparring, though he focused much more on encouraging his cascoon. he'd known her as a small wurmple, when she'd been too afraid to battle, and it warmed his heart to see her now. "you've got this! poison sting, sumayya! and focus on dodging, nabil," he called out, taking note that the rain was starting to lessen. it wasn't long before the sun finally managed to pierce through the dark clouds, and grey made its way to a clear blue, and samir picked his cascoon up in a victorious pose -- just as he sees it.

no. hears it, before he sees it. a clear note that sings through the air, announcing its presence before the large creature flies across the sky. samir almost drops sumayya, and instead hugs her to his chest as he watches it sweep overhead. entranced by the sighting and the rainbow, he stares into the sky until they both disappear. for a second, he doubts himself, but he knows what he saw, and looking around at the awed silence around him, he's rooted in his certainty. childhood legends run through his head, the ones he'd always cast aside as nothing but stories, but he can't help but wonder ...

"calming, isn't it?" piper hums to the piplup at her side. the two sat in stillness and silence as the rain pounded the ground around the apartments tiny patio. the book on the students lap had long since been abandoned, the pages crinkling slightly around the edges as the damp air seeped into them. instead, her brown eyes followed the delicate reflective drops as they plummeted from the sky as if she were in a trance. only her piplup's sudden chirp brought her back to reality. she cocked her head curiously, shooting him an inquisitive glance. "what is it?"

the penguin pokemon certainly seemed ruffled. slowly, the rain began to let up and piper felt disappointment grip her with just the gentlest of squeeze before easing into acceptance. there went her peaceful meditation. dill still seemed quite on edge which was unusual for the usually peppy pokemon. so caught up in his odd behavior, the brunette nearly missed the next sequence events that she would surely kick herself over for days to come had she been so oblivious. a distinct sound broke through the calm of the air, prompting her gaze to slide back to the sky that danced with the image of a rainbow.

her mouth opened in a gasp that never came. her piplup began to hop up and down excitedly, flapping his wings as if eager to take flight and follow the majestic creature even if he knew the attempt was futile. was that- was that what she thought it was? her mind groped for any sort of logical explanation only to come up empty. she supposed, just for the day, that she could believe in fate and fairy tales. piper's mouth shut with an audible "click" of her teeth just as the bird disappeared from sight. incredible. "how is it, bud," her voice was barely above a whisper, "that the most mundane days can give the greatest thrills." the book, in all her distraction, had slid off her lap and lay discarded on the ground, soaking up the water for the porch just as she had intended to do with knowledge for tomorrow's test. damn. she sure hoped she aced it now.
