1609125227891.png Name: Lillibeth Maines
Age: 14
Gender: Female

Personality: Lillibeth is curious to a fault and exceptionally intelligent. She is outgoing and friendly.

Occupation: Former Inventor's assistant (trying to avoid being a mail-order bride)

Bio: Lillibeth was born to a large family in Boston. Her parents were uncaring (her father also abused her) and had more children than they could support. Her father indentured her as a servant to a wealthy professor in town when she was nine years old. One night the professor caught her in his library reading one of his books on physics. Once he found out that she was actually understanding a lot of the material (except for the mathematics), he started letting her accompany him in his laboratory work, where she became far more valuable as an assistant than a household maid. Her quick mind ravenously consumed any item of knowledge he threw at her. She learned about the work of Faraday, Maxwell, Edison, and Babbage, and the workings of various types of steam engines. Shortly after her 14th birthday, the professor died. Her father, frowning on the idea of a girl meddling in 'men's work, found an elegant solution to the problem she represented: send her West as a mail-order bride. He would get a tidy sum for her, she would be placed in a "proper" role for a girl, and as an added bonus, he'd get rid of her for good.

I'm mostly used to Modern-Fantasy and things with some level of Slice of Life to them, though I'm willing to try anything even dice RP. I do think my fight scenes read a bit odd though, it's a work in progress... I also have a penchant for Comedy.


The Essentials:

Name: Miranda Duvet Pounce (Mi, Mira)
Age: Fifteen
Gender: Female
Species: Skitty

Fatal Flaw: Miranda is a really jumpy individual sometimes nearing paranoia. She's scared of big Pokemon before she has even met them, imagining they could outright eat or squash her since she's so tiny. New things instigate her curiosity but as soon as something unexpected happens, for example, a sudden noise, Mi will squeak and cower in fear of whatever it was. This Skitty's colourful imagination seems to always make her think that the worst will happen: Maybe a thief will jump from behind this tree, maybe we're gonna be caught and sent to prison before they can ever let us talk! Maybe that spider will kill me on my sleep!
Obviously, most of the 'what if's are too surreal to happen, but Miranda will need a friend to assure her of that. Her silly delusions can keep her from doing fun things she adores or even get in the way of her going outside. All because 'someone said this', 'I read about that', or 'that could happen'. Another issue is that it takes her far longer than most to adapt to new situations and people. New places seem to give her quite a dose of anxiety.

Saving Grace: Once settled in, Miranda will start to slowly open up. What's behind of all the anxiety and vivid imagination, is a sweet little kitten with a large heart. Mi's capacity of understanding others is quite unusual making her able to forgive even the most terrible of deeds. Sure, bullies are scary, but in the occasion that said bully shares it's hard past, Miranda will be the first one to jump in the scene and probably offer a hug followed by a heartfelt 'Oh, you poor poor thing!'. Her empathy also makes her very emotional, being the one to burst crying with all kinds of sad stories, no matter if they're not actually ALL that sad to everyone else in the room.

Appearance:

Considered kinda short even amongst other Skitty, Miranda is 1' 9'' and weights a feeble 69,9 lbs. In addition to their normal looks of pink and cream, these pokemon have evolved to become bipedal, their hind paws while still cat-like, getting more closer to the body line giving them the stability to run on two legs without face-planting on the ground. Despite the big advancement in standing, grabbing things is still a bit of a task. The toes from the front paws evolved to be more mobile, able to separate well from the other toes at will and bend inwards a bit earlier, making it so that the paw itself bends in half, similar to what humans were capable of doing. However as the toes have not changed shape or size, trying to actively grab thin objects proves to be a challenge and there's not much support, meaning the object might fall on quick paw movements or if the Skitty is bumped into/shaken/pushed/pulled. The 'half-assed' evolution makes it so that if the pokemon desires to run on four paws for a quicker escape, it still can. This practice is frowned upon socially though, advised to be their last resort and only for extreme emergencies.

Miranda herself is a green-eyed Skitty and her clothing style is rather tomboyish, composed mostly of jeans, shorts, sleeved T-shirts and sneakers. 'Rather tomboyish' because the assortment of colors and cute prints throws that concept a bit out of the window, especially once you see her ribbon and collar collection. Mi loves to wear those on her neck and sometimes may swap the ribbon to be on the tail instead, always in a lace her mom carefully tied for her.

Personality: Considerate [+], Forgiving [+], Cautious [+], Gentle [+],
Obsequious [/], Timid [/], Sociable [/], Curious [/],
Lonely [-], Cowardly [-], Dismayed [-], Suspicious [-].

Mi is extremely gentle, speaking in a low, softly voice most of the time. Her words, despite being rather simple, are sincere, kind and often good advice/encouragement. She's always measuring her words and reactions, not wanting to hurt others feelings or anger them in any way. Miranda prefers to be everyone's friend, or at least pleasant to everyone else than to be selfish and act on impulse, though pleasing absolutely everyone is very hard, nearly impossible, putting the Skitty in an impasse.
Sometimes her self-control will slip, and the girl's curiosity and excitement will speak louder. Then Mi might go dashing straight to whatever caught her attention, forgetting to be cautious to stay out of danger. Especially if it's a grassy field, she adores running around free in these and later lying down for a nap in the sun. Like the kitty she is, Mi is easily amused and impressed by everyday objects. Something extremely mundane to others will be the world's best thing for her, drawing her to fiddle around with it until she either gets bored or her energy runs out.

When meeting another pokemon, Miranda is timid at first, speaking ever lower than normal, with her heart pounding and her flight instinct ready to kick-in in case something goes wrong. If it's too big or scary of a pokemon, she'll curve her back into herself, appearing smaller and mew in fear of the stranger. It's their call to attempt to calm her or simply leave her be. Going past this stage, they'll have a friendly kitten who loves her friends a lot. Mi can come across as dependent on others, often asking them what they want, or asking for permission to do things, before actually doing them.
She's a very lonely individual and may feel cast aside, unneeded, on situations that are not what they seem. When feeling like this, Miranda will grow distant from others, failing to listen to conversations and barely responding. Once the feeling becomes unbearable, she'll make an excuse to leave the group, searching for a peaceful and isolated place where she could think about it, or cry. Mi does not desire for her friends to see her in this frail state. She prefers that they can see her as this cheerful and kind pokemon, rather than the fearful, broken kitty she actually sees herself as.

Often, Miranda lacks the courage to deal with her own problems. Her first instinct is to run away and it takes her an incredible amount of mental power to not oblige with it. Not being alone helps, and having people need her help is even better, as her loyalty to them kicks in and she mindlessly throws herself in the issue to assist. Mi is unable to hold grudges for too long. When someone wrongs her, of course, she'll be upset and frustrated at the occasion, but come with a sincere apology in an hour or two and no matter what you did, you'll be forgiven in the spot.
Due to her almost paranoid anxiety and fear, Miranda will be suspicious of an individual that appears to be too friendly. She'll think the want something out of her, or maybe are tricking her into trusting them, just to be caught off-guard when she's alone with them. This is especially strong towards big and scary-looking pokemon and it's a throwback to her childhood incident. It will take her some time and there might be relapses of the behavior in the future.



History: Born in Rustboro City, Miranda was always a curious little kitty. Being an only child of a pair of Delcatty, Helen and Noah, her parents had been too overprotective of her, making all kinds of rules and stories to keep her from harm, homeschooling her in the start and not allowing her to play outside or with other kids, unless an adult was coming along and they knew her friends. Thus, when Mi was given lighter permissions to explore, by 8, she took the opportunity in a hardcore way. The Skitty wandered off, away from her little cabin home and chasing after a squirrel, found herself lost inside the dense forest between Rustboro and Petalburg City.
It was a terrifying experience. The woods of Hoenn were vast and Miranda had been so distracted on her way in, that she couldn't remember where she had come from! To make it worse, the night started to fall, a cold icy breeze seemed to punish the little Skitty for her stupidity...and then there was a growl. Out of the mass of trees, an older, probably wild, Poochyena appeared and the grin it had was an indicator that it's intentions we're clearly not good. Not waiting for the imminent attack, Miranda picked a random way and ran as fast as could. She'll never know if the hyena pokemon was just going to pick on her or actually pounce and end her life, but it had been certainly a wise decision to not stay to figure it out. Crawling into a little hole in a tree, small enough that her pursuer would not be able to get inside, Mi managed to avoid the danger. Scared and alone, the Skitty vowed to never, ever, ever wander off away from her parents again, if she ever got back home after this.

The next morning, Miranda heard her name being called. That chase had gotten her fairly closer to where she had entered and her dad had been desperately looking for her. The Skitty crawled back out, covered in mud and leaves and dashed towards the voice. Noah looked tired, he had been up all night searching for her. The expression of joy and relief when he saw Miranda was safe, she had a couple of scratches here and there from branches but still alive, would be a face the Skitty would never forget...Neither the lecture she was given afterwards, but Mi knew she deserved every single word of that. This little adventure made Miranda an even greater shut-in. Her first experience on the longed-for world, beyond the field near home, had been a disaster. She was reminded of that terrible night every time she attempted to approach the door, fearing that other wild, aggressive pokemon were out there, searching for her, waiting for her to be reckless again.

At first, not having their daughter stroll off without permission was a delight for the Delcatty pair, but as that behavior continued on, already a month after the occurrence, the couple started getting worried that it wasn't just the effect of having learned her lesson. Miranda refused to go outside, even with an adult, and her friends had started pestering the Pounce's about her health. Not knowing what else to do, they called a Psychologist, a kind and calm Azumarill called Dana, to help them out. Of course, having a stranger inside was the least that Miranda wanted. It was a long and difficult process, but eventually, Dana's kindness and determination towards the case reached the Skitty. From there on, the Azumarill helped Miranda fight her anxiety and fear. Gradually Mi was back outside, first with company and later by herself. The suggestion for her to attend a normal school was also listened to, with Helen staying around for the first month, encouraging her daughter to interact instead of staying with her, until it was clear Miranda had gotten used to the routine and could handle it by herself.

It was some progress, but as the years passed by it became clear Mi was too dependent of her family. She had accommodated herself, even with the constant guiding and advising of Dana, there was not a single drop of aspiration, for anything. It had been a hard decision, but the Pounce couple came to realize that if they really wanted Miranda to grow, they had to let her go, send her away to new experiences and new people. Otherwise, she would always rely on them for everything and that would be potentially bad for her future.
Choosing Miraculum Academy, a place prized for its encouragement of dedication and hardwork, for this experience and after a very very long discussion over why they were doing this, Miranda's parents enrolled her in the academy for High School, expecting that it would her find that spark of aspiration the Skitty had lost in the way.

  • Singing (It's not a spectacular voice, but it's pleasant and calming enough);
  • Listening to others;
  • Offering advise.

Fighting style: If by herself, Miranda will not fight back and instead attempt to run away as fast as she can. Depending on the setting of the fight, there's a possibility that it will remind her of the night a Poochyena chased her and the Skitty will freeze into place, too terrified to move as if that terrible night was actually happening in that exact moment, and not in the past.
The presence of a friend is reassuring, making it harder for Mi to reach that state, knowing that someone else can defend her. Cowering behind said friend is a very common occurrence, but upon noticing they can't do it alone and need her help, she might jump into the fight without a second thought, usually on a desperate and risky tackle of the enemy so that her partner can act fast. Alongside this, Miranda's repertory consists mostly of: Distractions and pleas, growling in an attempt to look scary (doesn't quite work as intended but sometimes it helps) and spinning/slapping the heck of the air in the middle of panic, hoping her tail/hands will hit...something at the very least. Turning her tail to an opponent, however, is a bad move as they need only to grab and pull it to throw Mi off balance, possibly making her fall.
It's very apparent that she's not a fighter, but instead a mediator. Always trying to get everyone to be happy again.

    The lovely Golden color is our GM color


    Today at 10:03 AM


  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    Beau, Marissa, Lillbeth and Miranda would find themselves in a detective's office when they awoke. The plot hole that had brought them here had vanished.


    Today at 10:05 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    " Well..... I guess I should be relieved that we aren't dead," Beau replied.


    Today at 10:12 AM

  • Loveless Loveless :
    Getting herself back up to her paws with some difficulty, Miranda's first order of business was to instantly sprint away and hide behind Lilly, which was to say the only person she trusted besides Marissa the Turtwig. "N-not again...!", the Skitty wailed with dismay at being once more in an unknown, weird location.


    Today at 10:13 AM

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    Lillibeth scrambled to her feet. "Miranda, are you alright?" The alien cat seemed to be, given the speed with which she was able to get up and scurry behind Lillibeth. By instinct, she crouched down to pet her. "We'll get through this, alright? Whatever is doing this obviously doesn't want to just kill us." Then it hit her that the person from 'Pokemon World' might not like being petted, especially if that was something 'trainers' did. "Oh, uh...sorry if that bothers you," she said, pulling her hand away.


    Today at 10:19 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    " Well, at least the narrator isn't here, so maybe we will...."


    Today at 10:24 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    " Uh- where are we? A detective's office. There are no detective's office in my charp, I mean, my non-charp. This is not a charp."


    Today at 10:25 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    " I think you spoke too soon," Marissa replied to Beau.


    Today at 10:25 AM

  • Loveless Loveless :
    Miranda's reply to the not-trainer had been a little unnerved 'oooh, I really hope so....' as she held her front paws on top of each other and closer to her furred, trembling body. Mii didn't exactly hate the pat, her mother pat her a lot too... It just made her extremely home-sick since Lilly was nice and all but, she wasn't her mom. Her ears hang down with melancholy until the loud voice from before spoke again, prompting them back up in alert. "He- He also doesn't know??! Oh, oh Arceus, we're so lost and far away from home... What's going to happen to us now??", she seemed to be mildly panicking.


    Today at 10:31 AM

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    Lillibeth looked around the office. There were a few objects she didn't recognize, but the light came from lamps and a ceiling fixture here. Not lanterns or candles, but certainly more familiar than the peculiar light-panels from the previous room. Then the voice spoke again. Alright, so a 'charp' must be something similar to this, and given that the voice has been using reverse logic this entire time, it seems likely that this must be a charp after all. "Of--of course this couldn't possibly be a charp," she said. "Could you please explain what a charp is?"


    Today at 10:32 AM

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    Then Lillibeth turned back to Miranda, who seemed to be on the verge of panic. "Would you like me to hold you again?" In truth, she expected to receive as much comfort from holding the alien cat as Miranda might receive from being held. But she couldn't be a child, not now. Had to be strong.


    Today at 10:34 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    " A Charp stands for a chat Action Roleplay, which is this is not. Not a Charp, no siree and you certainly don't have goals to get home. Nope, nope. And you shouldn't snoop because that will attract the plot hole."


    Today at 10:37 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    " So, we're totally doing the opposite of what he says right?" Beau seriously asked.


    Today at 10:37 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    Marissa started to investigate the drawers for clues


    Today at 10:37 AM

  • Loveless Loveless :
    Miranda reluctantly answered with a nod. She hated feeling fragile and scared like this, she wanted to be strong like the others were. But then also, her mind had started doing that thing where it started listing all of the possible things that could go wrong ever and that was too much to handle. And not good, definitely not good.


    Today at 10:39 AM

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    "Chat...action...roleplay?" Lillibeth repeated. That made exactly zero sense. "OK," she said to Miranda, gently scooping her up. She had to resist the temptation to hold the little being tight, too tight for her comfort. She looked nervously at the turtle-creature, who was starting to search the desk drawers. "Why don't we try to see where we are?" she said to Miranda, then went to try the office door. Escape felt like a better plan than waiting around for the 'plot hole' to show up again...


    Today at 10:43 AM

  • Loveless Loveless :
    Miranda let herself be picked up, making an effort to not accidentally unsheathe her claws and harm Lilly in the process, slowly settling herself in a comfy position. The non-trainer's embrace was just as warm as it had been the first time and if it wasn't for the situation they were currently in, Mii would have considered taking a nap here. "I guess that could help shed some light on things...", the Skitty had agreed.


    Today at 10:47 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    The door to outside literally led to nothing. It seemed that whatever they needed was in the office.


    Today at 10:52 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    " There's nothing in these drawers."


    Today at 10:53 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    As if it has always been there, a file cabinet opened and in walked what could be described as a gumshoe detective. He was semi-dark skinned ( Hispanic) in looks and had a mustache and a black hat. He didn't notice Marissa rifling through his cabinet or the others.... yet.


    Today at 10:56 AM

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    Lillibeth screamed at the sight of the void beyond the door, and slammed it shut. "Alright...alright...." she stammered. Now she was holding Miranda too tight. "Sorry..." she said, loosening her grip. "So...so this is not a real world. We...we could still be at home in our bodies, just waiting to wake up...like from a dream." The door opened, and a man walked in. Lillibeth quickly backed away. Strangely, he didn't seem to notice her, or the alien cat she held in her arms. It's like we've fallen into a book. Like Alice in Wonderland. This is not the book the voice wants us to be in...so maybe he can't see us because we're not in his story yet?


    Today at 11:01 AM

  • Loveless Loveless :
    "Or not because these doors are leading us nowhere...", Miranda sighed, for a moment considering the idea of a barrier or sorts but, neither her of Mari were psychic types and there was no other pokémon anywhere to be found. The world just- strangely seemed to end there, reaching her paw out also yielded no result. A mew of pain echoed as Lilly seemingly tried to crush her, though the apology eased her paranoid worries a bit... "I'm just so confused???", well, she guessed some pokémon could walk dreams and take others with them but- Suddenly dapper dressed other non-trainer(?) had walked in, prompting Mira to squeak again, this time in surprise as she curled up trying to hide inside the girl's hold.


    Today at 11:07 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    Beau was speechless for once. That guy was fucking hot and he didn't have words to express.


    Today at 11:08 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    " Hey, Mr. Detective, who are you?" The narrator asked,


    Today at 11:09 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    The detective looked around confused. " Who said that?"


    Today at 11:09 AM

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    'Chat action roleplay,' Lillibeth thought. Her only real clue as to the true nature of the 'world' she was in. One of the voices was the 'Narrator,' which reinforced the idea of being trapped in a story. 'Plot hole' could also fit: a gap in the plot of the story. 'Chat action' made no sense; chatting was a thing people did when there was no 'action' about, sitting in a drawing room or the like. 'Roleplay?' Like actors, playing roles? Yes, something like that. Before she could contemplate further, the Narrator spoke to the man--a detective, apparently--and he looked around in search of the source of the voice as one might. He looked rather like a gunslinger type to Lillibeth's eyes, not that she'd actually encountered a gunslinger in the flesh. But she supposed gunslingers would look like the men in the little whistle-stop towns she'd passed on her way.


    Today at 11:17 AM

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    Lillibeth kept silent and pressed herself against the wall to stay out of the Detective's way. Remaining invisible sounded like a good strategy for the time being.


    Today at 11:18 AM

  • Loveless Loveless :
    Miranda watched with dismay, peeking from under Lilly's arms at the environment, as the narrator had seemingly called the attention of the newcomer. What was he thinking?! They didn't even know if this individual was trustworthy!! Or if he would be mad about them looking around his place...


    Today at 11:21 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    " Uhh- it is I..... the...." Paper rustling could be heard. " Your new client, Mr. Escort. My friends and I are just incredibly shy about our looks as we ..." More paper rustling could be heard. " Are incredibly ugly. Like super so, but we would love to know where we are."


    Today at 11:22 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    The Detective cocked an eyebrow. " You're in *******, in my office. I'm Detective Diego Roz, at your service. Where do you need to be escorted too, Mr. Escort in the city of *****?"


    Today at 11:24 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    " CENSORED? THE CITY NAME is censored."


    Today at 11:25 AM

  • Loveless Loveless :
    "H-hey, Skitty are very cutesy! We're literally called the kitten pokémon!!", Miranda had shouted suddenly, clearly offended by the excuse, before squeaking again as she realized what she had done and put both paws against her mouth. "Sorry..."


    Today at 11:27 AM

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    If this is a story, can I create things? Lillibeth thought. The Narrator certainly could, and whoever or whatever was behind the Plot Hole apparently could as well. She flinched when the Narrator mentioned 'my friends and I.' But so far, the Detective was not reacting to her, Miranda, or Marissa. She tilted her head curiously when the name of the city was blanked out somehow. Lillibeth concentrated on the top of a filing cabinet behind the Detective, envisioning a small fluted glass vase holding a daisy, trying to will it into being. Her concentration was shattered by Miranda's sudden outburst. "Shhhh!" she hissed, but it was probably too late.


    Today at 11:28 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    The Detective did not hear the Skitty or Lillabeth. However, the daisy did appear. The detective sneezed


    Today at 11:33 AM

  • Loveless Loveless :
    Miranda was suddenly glancing up at her in a mix of confusing and astonishment, had she just seem a non-trainer do something a psychic type pokémon could probably do??? What the heck was going on?! This couldn't be possible, could it? ...........Miranda then imagined a big fishbowl over the desk, but it obviously contained a Magikarp instead of normal fish.


    Today at 11:39 AM

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    When she looked back to the filing cabinet, Lillibeth almost jumped for joy. If I can create things, then maybe I can escape! And make a way for Miranda and Marissa to get home. But...this whole thing could just be some dream or delusion of mine, and I could just wake up on the train...no...I couldn't imagine a 'Pokemon World,' could I? She edged along the wall back toward the door, keeping away from the Detective. "Boston. The city is Boston," she whispered. The 'Boston' of this Detective's time would surely be different from the Boston she grew up in, but there would also be much that would be the same. She was surprised to see a large fishbowl appear, containing a rather ugly fish. "Was that you?" she whispered to Miranda.


    Today at 11:42 AM

  • Loveless Loveless :
    "Uhhhh, maybe.", the Skitty had answered sheepishly, in Miranda's defence she hadn't expected it to work! "It's like we're suddenly Psychic types! ...I guess we really are dreaming then..."

    In his surprise of a random fishbowl appearing on the table, the Detective would knock it over. The fishbowl would disappear and the fish would just splash. " Oh sorry, you must be heard of hearing, I said Boston."

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    It worked! Lillibeth thought. "I think we might be able to get you home," she whispered to Miranda. Lillibeth turned to Marissa and waved to try to get the turtle-plant Pokemon's attention. There's a hallway outside the door. Another office across the way, unoccupied. Lights like the ones in here, she thought. Now there was the question of whether they would be able to slip out the door without the Detective noticing them.

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    Beau would raise an eyebrow and decided not to question it as he picked up the Magikarp and imagined a pokeball for the poor thing ( One filled with water at that) to put it in.


    Today at 11:57 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    The office did not appear across the hall. It seemed that creating things was restricted to objects in this room for now. " So, you and your friends here for the Plot Celebration parade?"


    Today at 11:59 AM

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    If I turn right in the hallway, there will be a door leading to the street. Cambridge Street, she thought. But there was a problem: she didn't know what Cambridge Street in this time would look like. Would there be unfamiliar machines? How much would women's fashions have changed? Would the logic of the Story fill in those details, or would she have to? And if she did, and she got anything wrong, would that summon the Plot Hole? But when she slowly opened the door to peer out, the void remained. Lillibeth sighed.


    Today at 12:00 PM

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    "St. Patrick's Day," Lillibeth whispered. If the Plot Hole was drawn to, well, holes in the story, then perhaps she could help stave it off until she came up with a better idea.


    Today at 12:02 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    "Bleh, I mispoke, the Saint Patrick's Day Celebration."


    Today at 12:04 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    " I have a suggestion. I imagine that we might want to attract the plot hole to move whatever is happening so maybe we should make ourselves visible."


    Today at 12:04 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    " DON"T MAKE YOURSELVES VISIBLE!"

  • Loveless Loveless :
    Miranda watched the conversation between the narrator and the dapper-ly dressed non-trainer with the utmost confusion. Where's Boston? What's Boston?? Though Lilly's whisper had soon dragged her right out of it, "Wha- Really??", she didn't know what the other was planning, but it sounded reassuring! Except that then they had walked right towards the door again and nothing was still there. "Were you trying something?", the Skitty asked, chaining another question as well, "What's Saint Patrick's Day?" At Beau's suggestion, Miranda had a new one, "Oh, weird idea, but maybe if I use Attract?" A female pokémon, a male non-trainer it was worth a shot... Would definitely make it hard to ignore her!


    Today at 12:08 PM

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    Alright...the Detective will be the main character for this Story. So maybe if he goes out into the hallway, it'll be there. Will things only exist within some radius of him, or will they stay real once his presence has created them? Let's see...the Narrator is another person, right? So this is not a story written solely from his point of view? Except the Narrator isn't from this Story, so maybe it is...but even then, things in a story happen outside of a character's view, like whatever the other characters in this Story would be doing now. Lillibeth shook her head frantically. Who knew what other kind of Story the Plot Hole might drop them into? This one at least seemed relatively safe. But I still need the Detective to move around the city in order to make it real. Or at least try the experiment... "Wait," she whispered to Miranda's suggestion. Whatever 'Attract' was, it probably didn't fit in this Story.


    Today at 12:10 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    " I can't believe I'm saying this, but yes, please use attract on the Detective."


    Today at 12:11 PM

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    Opening the door, Lillibeth turned her back to it, pretending to walk in and close it behind her. "Excuse me sir, I seem to have lost my turtle--oh, there it is!" she said, pointing to Marissa with her free hand.


    Today at 12:11 PM

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    "I'm really sorry to bother you...actually...I'm lost too. Could you take me to Cambridge Street?"


    Today at 12:12 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    The detective would tilt his head up. " That is the strangest looking turtle I have ever seen, but yes, I can escort you there."


    Today at 12:14 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    Beau would make himself visible. " I'm sorry, but uhh- Mr. Ros was it? I think my .... adopted sister also forgot she left her cat here... when we came yesterday. Do you remember that?"

  • Loveless Loveless :
    Miranda was confused again, both individuals were giving her different instructions. Buuut, if she ever had to really choose, she'd rather listen to Lilly the most. And so she waited patiently, wondering what the others were planning in doing. She meowed just for effect.

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    " Of course, I never forget anything."

    "It's a rare species," Lillibeth said. "From...Siam," she said, picking up the Turtwig. "Thank you so much sir!" she said. She clenched her teeth at the other man making her his adopted sister. With her "brother" there, the Detective wouldn't have to 'help her get home' and create more city in the process! Think...think...

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    " I have no sense of direction," Beau replied.

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    " Ahhh- you sound like most brothers, can find their siblings in a mess but can never get them back home."


    52 minutes ago

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    "Uh...yeah," Lillibeth said with a weak laugh. "He's a great brother, but a terrible Narra--navigator," she said. Still, she smiled at Beau. At least he seemed to catch on to what she was trying to do. "So...we live on Cambridge Street. Do you know how to get there from here?"


    48 minutes ago

  • Loveless Loveless :
    This felt like watching a play put together by the academy's theater group... Since she didn't have much to do but watch, Miranda settled comfortably on Lilly's hold and tried to stop worrying too much for once. Hopefully, this was what she was expected to do? Just sit and be cute, had to be a Skitty's biggest skill.


    45 minutes ago

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    Beau awkwardly motioned for Miranda to follow. " Cambridge Street is actually only a block over, my folks lived there a while back and well, been weirder there since.' The Detective would lead them to Cambridge Street.

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    Everything looked normal. Apparently, this hadn't done enough yet. However, a small blip was starting to form.


    41 minutes ago

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    Lillibeth stared in wide-eyed fascination at the cars that drove back and forth on the street. They clearly had engines of some kind, as she could hear a fast-paced chugging from them, but there were no boilers she could see, or cam rods to the wheels, which were themselves made of a substance she'd never seen before. "Do you have one of those?" she said, pointing at the nearest parked car. "Do you know how the engines work?" Curiosity had captured her completely, so that she didn't even notice the blip.

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    " Alas, the price is too high for me. I dream of having one once they are affordable."


    33 minutes ago

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    Beau would nod to answer Lillibeth. " I have one or two back home. My parents always were competing to see who can get me better since the divorce."


    33 minutes ago

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    "Well I hope you can afford one soon. Oh, uh..." She carefully set Marissa down to free up a hand. I have a $20.00 gold piece, she thought, willing a $20.00 Walking Liberty coin to form in her hand. "I should pay you for your help," she said offering him the gold piece. It didn't occur to her that the coin might seem out of place to him, and would be worth quite a bit more to him than it had been worth in her time. "Are you going to the St. Patrick's Day Parade?"


    29 minutes ago

  • Loveless Loveless :
    Miranda automatically followed given that Lilly had never put her back down, the only difference is that Mari was also here now! Sharing in the comfy warmth with her. The weird creatures roaming the streets were unlike anything she had ever seen, well, they were similar to some pokémon and yet so-so different. If she was in the group this would have been infinite times scarier. Whenever Marissa got put back down Miranda saw her off with a wave, the sidewalk was safe, right?

    "I'm going to try to get him to show us as much city as I can," Lillibeth whispered to Miranda. "He's the main character, so he banishes the Void. If we can make enough city, maybe we can escape, and I can try to find a way to create a Looking Glass or something that can send you and Marissa home."


    26 minutes ago

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    The detective took the coin and stared. " Thank you, you have no much how much this is worth. I mean, I am." The plot hole moved closer and closer to the fivesome.


    26 minutes ago

  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    "Oh no!" Lillibeth said, seeing the Plot Hole coming. "I mean...it's alright, we're rich--my brother owns two mechanical wagons--I climb lots of trees and stuff," she said, trying to explain why her dress looked old and a bit ragged. She scooped Marissa back up so she could run. But what if the Plot Hole gets the Detective? Will everything disappear?


    22 minutes ago

  • Loveless Loveless :
    Main character??, Miranda wondered to herself, so they were inside a story??, how the heck had that happened? The Skitty seemed a bit uncertain about Lilly's plan, she wanted to believe it was that, not simple- But fantastical? And yet something in her little heart just couldn't stop worrying... Soon enough the reason for her worries would manifest itself in the weird void that had dragged them here in the first place, coming back for seconds. Several distressed meows followed since they were still on the act and she'd hate to ruin it.


    21 minutes ago

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    Beau stared at the plot hole and then back for a moment at the detective. " Fuck."

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    " You made your bed, so now lay in it. I told you.... this is not a CHarp and you keep attracting him. " That was the last words the fivesome heard the narrator say as the plot hole overtook the whole street.


    18 minutes ago

  • LuckycoolHawk9 LuckycoolHawk9 :
    The plot hole would do its thing and before long, nothing was left of the story. When the fivesome awoke... they would find themselves in a strange house with a young man sleeping in a bed. Tune in on February 22nd for part 3, There won't be a Charp!
