Nuju: Hey. Just so you know there's a post form Alku that you need to reply to; I think it's on page 2 or 3.
Stoney: Umbra's still playing; he's having trouble catching up, though, so you may have to wait a little bit until he's ready to play.
IC - Ethan - Lilycove Park: "It's probably best if I don't answer those questions in order," Ethan said. He looked at the clouds. "Well, to start, it looks like a bad forecast with a very large chance of rain. Beyond that, it probably has something to do with those invading Darkrai; until they become my problem, I won't worry about them, though." He looked away. "As for Team Aqua -- there are rumors that they're trying to come back into power. We're investigating them for Team Rocket."
The Rocket member sat up, stretching. "And I think that answers your first question pretty well. We're Team Rocket agents. I'm Ethan, this is Karin and Eric, and we have a fourth member somewhere around here; her name is Jamie, though you probably won't see her. We're going to question Archie and then we're returning him."
IC - Gavin - Lavender Town: Gavin knocked on the door, after looking at Dothe for support. The noise rang out, loud and hollow, around him in the empty street.
"Come in," a deep, tired voice said. Gavin didn't enter quietly so much as kick the door in, lightning in the background emphasizing his point perfectly. The man he was staring at was sitting in a shadowy corner of the house at a table, his eyes hidden under the visor of his cap as he chewed on something. He merely glanced at Gavin as he barged in, a slight smile crossing his lips.
"Took you long enough..."
OOC: And I finally got permission to do what I needed to do in relation to that curb stomp/big post I mentioned a while ago, so... Yeah, getting that rolling.
IC - Quincy Adams - Azalea Town: Quincy couldn't help but let her jaw drop in shock, anger and surprise at what Dara had just done. A new portal had been opened, one that was pulling Witch towards it in a strong gust of... Reverse World wind, as far as she knew. All this in spite of what she had just told her!
"Are you crazy!?" she demanded of the bounty hunter. "Just because Ford commissioned the creation of a Mewtwo that can create portals-" Her voice was caught in her throat as a sudden chill came upon the area, and the sky above turned grey with clouds. She looked around, worried. This didn't tend to happen unless he got angry... but where was he? And when had he even gotten here? The answer to her first question came in the form of a black shadow that rose from the forest behind the Pokemon Center.
Dara noticed it, as well. "Mewtwo, we've got company. Use-"
The psychic never finished her command, as a pillar of shadow shot towards her and knocked her back. Mewtwo -- currently standing inside of the Reverse World -- sensed the newcomer; feeling his power, he moved to go back through the portal.
Chaos erupted. Quincy was spared from the Darkrai's wrath, but Dara and Mewtwo were not so lucky. Fueled by rage at the careless tearing of the dimensional fabric, a gigantic whirlwind of shadow engulfed the entire upper floor of the Pokemon Center, shielding the exposed area where the walls had been destroyed from the outside, blotting out the sunlight. The only light that pierced it came from the Reverse World, and that didn't last long.
Mewtwo stopped, watching through his portal. "What is this...?"
He moved closer, careful not to exit just yet. Just then, an eye appeared in the darkness, green in color and rapidly followed by the phasing in of first the white hair of the Pokemon, followed by the red necklace, and finally his full form. Mewtwo gawked at the Darkrai -- and almost quaked in fear as it spoke.
"You fools!" A hand of shadow launched forward, grabbing Mewtwo by the chest and slamming him into the floor. Waves of shadow crashed upon the DNA Pokemon as more hands forced the portal closed; the Darkrai whispered an apology to Giratina as he worked, before turning his rage and anger back onto Mewtwo. "This world is weak enough as it is, and yet here you have the audacity to continuously rip apart its very fabric!" Mewtwo was slammed into the floor again, before being knocked backwards by a Flamethrower. "The power to manipulate space and time are not toys passed on to beings lightly; if you cannot respect the fabric of your dimension, then you, in turn, shall see no respect!"
Mewtwo was thrown back before being caught by another shadow arm and rammed into the ground; by this point he was too weak to fight back and too shocked to move.
"Beings who rip and tear on a whim for their own purposes, never mindful of the consequences of their actions, are not deserving of the powers of the gods! You will not, on my account, destroy the fabric of the world that my brothers and sisters threaten -- that I have worked far too hard to preserve!" The Darkrai geared up for another attack, ready to finish Mewtwo off-
"That's enough, Nine!" Quincy called sharply. "You've made your point and he can't fight back; are you going to let this drop now while the lesson is learned or act as your siblings do and show Mewtwo what it's like to have mercy withheld from them?" She glared Nine down as she spoke, the Darkrai having turned his head to stare angrily at her. After a few moments, the shadows began to disperse, retracting into his being.
"Checkmate," he said quietly.
Quincy shook her head, ignoring Nine and recalling Witch to her Poke Ball. She stared at Mewtwo for several long moments before looking back at Dara. "So... Looks like he fulfills Ford's expectations, at least."
