training start !

choose the path where no-one goes
lucius wasn't exactly an overachiever, and rarely ever made special meetings with the students, but this was a very special case. he was already a little fond of the girl, part of the little renaissance club he'd taken over upon his arrival at the school, he was aware she was a hard worker. a little shy and too easy to make fun of, but eager to please and better herself. it was hard not to like her. and besides, she'd approached him with the issue of her newly gained honedge. lucius found himself a little keen to help better their relationship.

not too many people looked upon lucius's sword fighting with approval, without really adding on that he fought with his honedge and that sometimes he sparred with his students. how else were they going to get better? he'd been the one to come up with this idea. something about how battling this way was very different and required a different level of communication between a trainer and a pokemon.

really, lucius wanted to spar with someone.

he'd have to go easy, he knew, but his leg was enough of a handicap. it wasn't acting up much today, thanks to some wonderful painkillers, and hopefully it'd stay that way. otherwise, he had more.

already suited up in his training armor, lucius was standing inside the small arena haleth had created with her body, though most of the reason was to partially shield what they were doing from curious eyes. the large steelix looked like she was sleeping, but every so often, would lazily open a singular eye to make sure everything was alright. the large aggron was too complacent, and she didn't trust him with watching over anything.

honedge in hand, he'd been swinging the sword-pokemon around, getting the both of them loosened up and ready. eventually, faramir joined in, more out of boredom than anything, and to at least give lucius a target to swing at.

"and a brutal swing!" he said, and suddenly took a large step, swinging narsil forward. the honedge's blade glowed white as the pokemon added its own speed and power to the attack. the aggron just managed to raise his arms to protect himself, and the two pokemon met in a clash of steel.

lowering his arms, faramir gave lucius what could only be called a pout, and he laughed, slightly out of breath. "sorry bud, i couldn't help it," he said, stepping forward to give the aggron an approving pat on his chest, before then letting his honedge go. instead of dropping like a normal sword, it hung in place before turning so it was "right side up" before blinking at lucius, waving the blue banner in his direction.

"alright, alright, and you were pretty good too."

the soldier came knocking upon the queen's door
Usually, the knight wielded the sword from the back of their noble steed; instead, while Kestrel was definitely sitting astride Orion's back as the Rapidash lived up to his species' name as they raced around the track, her 'sword' flew alongside them. No hands required.

Laughing, Kestrel signaled with her knees and thighs for Orion to skid to a halt and the Rapidash immediately did so - her hands were entirely occupied with the pieces of wood that would slot together to make her practice lance, so it was a good thing that she and Orion hadn't really ridden with reins for years now. She and her Rapidash stopped in a skid of dust and dirt; Brienne stopped far more decorously, bobbing alongside his trainer's side while she laughed and dismounted.

"Good run, guys," she said warmly, immediately leaving room for her clingy Honedge to come and hover as close to her as she could without there actually being physical contact. A relative baby in that she wasn't that long-hatched from the egg, Brienne was more awkward and vulnerable than any of Kestrel's other pokemon. Kestrel wasn't yet inclined to try and wean her off the attention, and so she let the Honedge's blue ribbon twine a tad fretfully around her upper arm as they walked into the arena, ready to train...

...then stopped, blinking, when she beheld Professor Knight swinging his Honedge at his Aggron. Yes, this was tangential to why she was here in the first place, but it still remained ridiculously cool to see. Orion snorted - whether in surprise or disapproval - but Kestrel held her breath, fascinated by the steel clash of it all.

She probably should have announced that she was here...but the tall girl was just too busy staring.

i'm assuming all his pokemon have met her before

though he wouldn't admit it, even that little warm up had sparked a sharp pain in lucius's leg. not a bad one, but enough to elicit that immediate frustration and was probably the reason he'd called his honedge to actually attack -- just to prove that he could still do it. the rush of adrenaline that came with sword-fighting this way, the sudden force that was suddenly behind the sword you were wielding, managed to help hide the start of a twinge, but he still favored his left leg as he walked over to lean against the steelix's large head.

the pokemon slowly opened her eyes, rumbling with concern, but lucius waved it away dismissively. haleth was prone to worrying, but it was understandable, as she'd seen just how badly he had been hurt. for a second, he thought of reaching in his bag for the small bottle of painkillers, but resisted, knowing it would only validate the large pokemon's worry.

lucius could see the slight irritation starting to build behind the steelix's eyes, but fortunately, he caught sight of the tall student standing next to a handsome rapidash, and he pointedly turned away from her.

"you finally made it!" he called out, raising his hand for a friendly salute, pushing up to walk closer. all his pokemon greeted kestrel, familiar with the young student during the sca meetings -- faramir waved a heavy arm, while haleth blinked in her direction -- but narsil had caught sight of the new honedge, and flew ahead to greet it, moving too fast for lucius to catch him.

"oi, you behave," lucius said, and narsil acknowledged it by giving the new pokemon a slightly wider berth, though he was still blinking and whistling amiably, eager to make a friend. "so this is your new sword?" lucius asked, a wide grin on his face. "she's a fine looking one, i'll give you that."

It was automatic for Kestrel to look penitent at the professor's use of the word 'finally'. Predictably, the girl was big on respect, and she hated that she hadn't been early for this meeting. At least her colouring mostly protected her from a mortified flush, but awkwardness briefly made her large frame turn shy and unsure.

"My apologies, Professor Knight," she said hesitantly, fingers tangling around themselves, callus rubbing against callus. His salute was reassuring, but it didn't take much to make Kestrel worried about having erred in some way. She had strict rules by which she lived her life and it was easy for her to see when she hadn't lived up to them.

Orion was in possession of far more emotional fortitude than his often-worried human and tossed his head in greeting at the Steelix and the Aggron, though he snorted in subtle disapproval at the way that Lucius' Honedge just zoomed right over. Brienne was far more jittery than Lucius' Narsil and clanked in a way that might have translated as an 'eep' before she tried to tuck herself flush against Kestrel's spine, like she could hide there.

Already, this boded well for the sparring match.

Kestrel smiled shyly at the compliment to her newest pokemon, glad that a professor she respected as much as Lucius liked the look of Brienne. "She is..somewhat shy still," she admitted, reaching behind her to stroke her fingers down the length of her Honedge's blade. Doing so blind risked cutting herself, but she hoped that Brienne would help her avoid that. Certainly there was no blood on her hand when it reemerged, Brienne's blue ribbon wrapped anxiously around her wrist as she coaxed her Honedge out from behind her. "I am hoping that Narsil will be able to convince her that a little bit of self-confidence would not be amiss."
