PostSubject: How to Lose   Mon Jun 20, 2016 2:43 am

First topic message reminder :

That mission tho:
 

-Sova-

After a very.... interesting encounter with what he'd originally thought to be a glaceon, Sova had mixed feelings about how his day had gone thus far. He'd had quite the unpleasant experience with a rather unappealing ditto; the second one of the day; but he'd also completed the missions he'd taken that were holding him back from progressing toward his true goal. In fact, the second ditto had actually been just who he had been looking for in order to complete one of his missions! Now, he could move on to the ruins, where he hoped he would find something that could solve his issue. This issue was one he'd kept mostly to himself, but it was one he shared with his group. Or at least, he shared a similar problem with the ones he'd chosen to come along with him.

He knew that he couldn't exactly send Dusk back to Grassveil alone, which meant she'd have to come with him and would inevitably figure out that he was going to the Snowcloak Ruins.... and, of course, she would figure out why. The glaceon knew this, but he still planned to keep her in the dark for as long as he could. It was something private to him that he wanted to keep between himself and those he'd entrusted with it for as long as he could. Plus, he figured Dusk would just try to convince him not to if she figured out. He didn't need any more forces tugging at his emotional state than he already had, and he certainly wasn't interested in being told he was wrong by someone who couldn't possibly understand.

The hail had stopped and he could now see the others thanks to the increased visibility. He looked over to the charmeleon next to him and spoke up: "Looks like we're home."
He had been planning to let Garnet respond, but then he spotted something that made him want to speak once more. The other umbreon Dusk had brought along with her was scurrying over to the two of them with a bag full of.... sticks. She seemed to be more focused on Garnet than himself, and since he didn't want to get sucked into any more social situations, he simply backed away and allowed the charmeleon to handle it. "Looks like you've got a fan," he joked.

-Dusk-

Dusk was alone with Acro, watching over him while the rest of the group was either out or just avoiding the poor guy. She'd previously had company, but this company was.... dismantled by her after they pushed her to the point where she simply could not handle having them around. "He did what you hired him for, now get out of here! Can't you find something better to do!?" she thought about what she had said to get the odd duo of clients to leave the bird and herself alone.
She'd gotten a bit pushy, but it was only because they had refused to leave otherwise. She was just happy that now, she could get to know Acro a bit better. She could only hope he wasn't upset about the fact that she'd kind of chased his clients off. Surely, it would be fine, since he had already completed the mission.

"So, what's your team? I don't follow guilds too much," she questioned in an attempt to get to know Acro a bit better.
She was curious to know the name of the team the archeops was a member of, and she didn't recall asking him before. He seemed to be the leader, or at least the figure of authority between himself and.... Linus.... Dusk didn't like Linus, as he seemed to be the opposite of what she imagined a member of a guild as. Then again, Sova wasn't exactly what she felt a guild member was supposed to be like either. Still, she knew Sova at least seemed to do the right thing when it mattered, even if it meant putting his own life at risk. The umbreon had also come to understand that perhaps in the line of work of doing "right," Sova may have had to put his morals aside at times and thus, he looked like an ass.

Dusk was so distracted with the archeops before her that she failed to notice that the rest of the group was getting back. She had taken it upon herself to be Acro's guard, even though she knew he was stronger than her. The issue with his strength was that he was exhausted and had probably caught hypothermia. At that, from what she'd been told, the archeops had a rather crippling ability that was probably still active.

-Krikka-

Krikka had become incredibly bored with her situation and ended up laying in the snow despite how cold it was. She was on her back, doing her best to get a good look at some of her pretty blue rings. In other words, she was indulging in a bit of narcissism to sate her boredom, as there was always one thing that never failed to entertain her in times of need. Herself. It was herself that she could always count on to cheer her up when the world was failing her, and the world failed her quite often. Perhaps she was just very picky and hard to please, but she didn't care. She was awesome! Her rings looked so much cooler than the tacky yellow that was on the lesser umbreon!

Despite being enthralled by herself, she still had her attention split enough to notice when the the glaceon and that foul charmeleon had gotten back. When she spotted the latter, she immediately rolled back onto her belly, pushed herself up off the ground, and shook the snow off of her. She then immediately got to work with her part of the revenge plan and trusted Linus to do his part. She put on the friendliest smile she could and began walking with a disgustingly happy skip in her step. This was to make her seem innocent, but it was also to make her look like a tripping hazard, like she could fall over herself at any second. She intended to fall, after all, so she needed to make it look like an accident. "Hiiiiii~" she waved a paw in the direction of the two returning members of the group. It was meant specifically for the one she was after.

Krikka intended to fall over like a klutz as soon as she got close enough to the charmeleon to potentially knock him over. She would, of course, try to put as much force into her little stunt as she could without making it obvious that she wasn't exactly falling. She figured the lizard was stronger than her, so she very much hoped she would have the element of surprise. Even if she couldn't knock him to the ground, she figured she would still be able to get him to hold still by pretending to be hurt and getting him to check her "injuries." He was with guild members, so he had to!

....Right?

The charmeleon gave an angered huff, a puff of flames and smoke erupting from his jaws. His calm composure was gone now that there was distance between him and the rest of the group. Sova had followed him and tried to reason with him. He did not turn to face the glaceon as he spoke and continued to put distance between them, "I'm not leaving. I'm just going to be waaaay back here so I don't end up doing something stupid."

His anger was getting quite a bit more difficult to control as of late. He felt that if he stayed near the eevee and this mess continued, he would just end up attacking. If the eevee was a powerful guild member, then he would just be crushed. If not, then he probably would have had charges pressed against him for assaulting a guild member. There would have been a factor of guilt, but at this rate Garnet felt that the eevee deserved a beating with how she had decided to act.

He was a bit doubtful of Sova joining him in the very tail end of the group, considering he was likely the strongest. He should have been up there with everyone else, you know, where all of the IMPORTANT pokemon are.

--

"That is still no way to act as a guild member," Acro spoke, successfully keeping himself from sounding too scolding and keeping a calm and collected tone. The eevee was a guild member, but this was not how guild members were to act. "There was surely another solution that did not require such measures," Acro insisted as he followed the eevee in the darkness. He could not see anything now that the mobile light had left, but he needed to keep up with the eevee.

--

Linus could see in the darkness, so he was fine with Garnet leaving. He watched as Acro followed the eevee and had to repress a snicker as Acro had been looking down at a rock rather than the eevee. The archeops was pathetically looking about as he followed a few feet behind the eevee, trying to figure out where the little fluffball had gone. Arceus he was pathetic...

-Shara-

Shara wasn't one with much of an ego despite her behavior. What she did, she did simply to protect others.... and because the charmeleon was really annoying. Ego had nothing to do with her actions, so when she was called out on being a jerk, she didn't even have to think twice about her answer. "You're right," she simply admitted without so much as looking back.
It wouldn't have mattered if she'd turned around anyway, since she was pretty sure the archeops couldn't see her. This meant she'd probably have to keep talking to make sure those who couldn't see could at least follow her voice. She wasn't fond of the idea of giving away her position so easily to any hostilities that could have been listening in, but it was better than having someone walk into her. At least she'd still hear any oncoming attackers.

The eevee didn't want to argue about her actions partly because she was busy trying to focus, but also partly because she knew it was wrong. She'd just been lazy and gotten sick of dealing with some hardheaded guy who wanted to get himself killed. This trip already had her worried, hence why she'd asked for two capable guild teams to accompany her. She wasn't in the most tolerant mood at the moment.

-Sova-

Sova sighed in a mix of relief and disappointment at the bittersweet response he'd gotten. At least Garnet wasn't leaving, but sticking at the back of the group, alone, in such a dangerous place.... wasn't very good either. At that, there was also the fact that Garnet was their light. He was confused as to why the client didn't care about losing her light, but that still wasn't his primary concern. He wanted to follow and guard Garnet, but he knew he needed to stick with the group in case something bad happened. It was an unfair choice that he didn't really want to make, but he didn't blame Garnet for it. In fact, he blamed the annoying client for being so antagonistic and provoking all of his friends. That eevee seemed to just be systematically pissing everyone off one at a time.

With a bit of a delayed response, the glaceon finally decided to settle for at least knowing his friend wasn't going to run off alone: "I'd stick around with you, but I've gotta sit up there with the little ball of fun and make sure no one dies. Be careful, alright?"
If he couldn't stay with the charmeleon, he at least wanted some kind of verbal reassurance, even if it didn't really mean much. He at least wanted to hear Garnet agree to try not to die doing something.... Garnet-y. After all, the most prominent thing he could remember about Garnet was a charmander trying to 1v1 a demigod. With that in mind, leaving the guy alone was not something he liked doing.

-Dusk-

The leaving light didn't matter to Dusk, what with her ability to see in the dark. She, for one, was aware that she could see in the dark. She'd been an umbreon long enough to have figured that out despite not having much prior knowledge on umbreon or Dark-types. She didn't know much about the guy, so the fact that he seemed to be leaving wasn't exactly a big deal. She still hoped he wouldn't stray too far and end up getting himself into trouble, though. She could see that not everyone was having such an easy time with the darkness, though: Acro clearly had no clue where he was going and was pretty much just going on faith. The eevee, though.... seemed to be a bit more confident in her steps, as if she still knew where she was going without any source of light.

-Krikka-

While Krikka didn't know everything there was to know about eevee, she knew from personal experience that they couldn't see in the dark. Maybe the client was just an overconfident idiot who felt like the straight hallway would continue on forever and she wouldn't bump into anything. That seemed doubtful, though, as this eevee hadn't struck her as someone who was truly that stupid. At that, the eevee had heavily stressed a worry for the dangers within, so to just wander ahead blindly after that was something she couldn't see even a truly stupid individual doing. She was certain that there had to be some kind of trick that the eevee was using the navigate.

She'd gotten so caught up with trying to figure out what this trick was that it took her a considerable amount of time to realize she was looking at the eevee. There was no longer a light at the front of the group, yet she could see exactly where the ball of brown fluff was, along with everyone and everything else. It was then that she finally came to understand that she had somehow gained the ability to see through the darkness. It didn't take long for her to piece together that the cause of this new ability had to be her evolution. She was now a DARK-type and she could see in the dark. For all she knew, maybe it was something rare, or even signature to umbreon. That was something she would have liked to know about prior, and it made her wonder what interesting talents the other evolutions of eevee held. Mostly, she was curious as to what she could have missed out on by choosing to be an umbreon.

The charmeleon listened to the glaceon as he asked one last questiona dn explained that he needed to be up there with miss bitch and the company. He nodded, understanding, "Yeah," he simply said in response. He would try, but there was no promises. If he died then he would not want to be alive...well, that was generally the point of dying, but the point was easy to understand. The glaceon spoke once more, a few words that kind of surprised Garnet. He made no response as the glaceon turned around save for, "Then that applies to you too."

Before the glaceon could say or do anything remotely in response, the tunnel began to shake. The roars from earlier deepened and echoed, though this time they sounded as if they were coming from the walls. There was a roar mixed with another, along with the deep rumbling of something forcing its way through the ground. One of the roars still struck Garnet as familiar. Where had he heard this before?

The attacking opponents had come from behind, or rather literally behind Garnet. A large body of steel shot up behind the charmeleon, causing him to cry out in surprise as he was launched forward by the bursting ground. There was another deep roar as another steel body forced itself from the ground, the two Steelixes bashing their heads into one another and bellowing at each other as if in a fight over territory. One steelix had quite a psychotic stare as if it had been enjoying the fight, while the other seemed more unnerved and worried.

"WHAT'S THE MATTER CHICKEN SHIT? CAN'T FINISH YER OWN FIGHT?" the one that grinned laughed at the other steelix.

--

Acro had been about to respond to the eevee when the tunnel began to shake once more. He gave up. He was done talking for now, literally the earth was interrupting him now. He was apparently just now allowed to speak anymore. He heard a deep roar coming from the walls just behind them where Sova and Garnet had wandered off to. he stopped in his tracks and looked back, unable to see anything in the complete darkness of the cave other than shapes an forms as his eyes finally began to adjust.

"What was that?" he asked, his heart beginning to beat as he feared for his friend's lives. Should they go back? He could not see anything! How would he be of any use? The archeops had to make a decision, and he had to make it fast...

--

Linus had stopped as well at the sudden roar, but he was by no means unnerved by it like Acro was. He huffed, "Stupid idiots," as he concluded that they were being attacked because they had split up from the group. He did not care if they died, he would just be sitting here with his death magnet, either way it was a result that would probably end up with him getting killed. So why fucking worry about anything? The sour honchkrow merely huffed as he turned to continue walking, expecting the eevee escort to just lead them onward and forget about those left behind.

YAY TRAPPER ORBS! :D

-Sova-

Sova didn't exactly want to promise to be careful, as he often had to be the exact opposite when the situation called for it.  Still, he decided if it meant Garnet would try to stay safe, it was worth promising he'd try as well.  He just wasn't sure how well he would be able to hold to that promise.  "..." he opened his mouth as he walked away, only to be interrupted by a sudden, metallic eruption  He only caught a glimpse of a steelix before being forced to duck as a hunk of rubble came flying at him.  His slight distance protected him from the immediate danger of the steelix, unlike his fiery friend.  But this didn't matter much since he was going to immediately put himself in harm's way in an attempt to stop whatever was happening before anyone he cared about ended up hurt.  Before he could get up, another steelix burst forth from the ground and everything became clear.  The reason for the sudden danger was two fighting natives of the ruins.  While this fight had happened to inconvenience their group, it also meant they weren't being targeted, so things weren't all bad.

One of the two serpents spoke, showing that it could at least communicate.  It also seemed to be a bit.... deranged compared to the other one, but the glaceon figured he still had a chance of calming the giant since it was clearly capable of communicating.  Something was bothering him a bit about the whole thing, though, and it wasn't necessarily a bad thing: the voice of the steelix seemed.... oddly familiar.  Considering the pressure of the situation, he was having trouble stopping to calmly think about it and figure out where he recalled the voice from.  There were more important things to think about at the moment, such as the safety of a certain charmeleon.  He needed to stop the beasts from fighting to ensure the safety of his friend.... one way or another.  The air temperature around him began to drop along with that of his body while a distinct yet light wind swirled around him.  He prepared to swing his tail toward the two beasts and send a freezing, fierce wind toward them when something suddenly grabbed onto it and began weighing him down.

Sova turned to look back at the weight on his tail to see a familiar ball of brown fluff attaching itself to him by its mouth.  "Get off," he demanded, to no avail.
The eevee seemed dead-set on stopping him from attacking and, by consequence, probably letting his friend die.  "Let me rephrase: get off of my tail before I make you," he so graciously clarified for the clearly hearing-impaired client.
He was then released, only to receive a response that made him reconsider immediately attacking.  The client seemed to believe she could quell the situation without such risky violence, and there was something about her words that made it seem like she knew what she was talking about.

-Shara-

The client was happy to have the stubborn charmeleon out of harm's way, even if he hated her for it.  In fact, even if the entirety of this group hated her for her actions, she didn't really care.  She felt that even if she could have done it in a "nicer" manner, she had still probably saved the poor idiot's life, and that was all that mattered to her.  "They'll all be safe as long as I'm leading," she thought idly to herself.
Fate itself then immediately decided to tell her how wrong it thought she was by proving her thoughts entirely wrong.  More of the roars signaled the presence of the still-prominent danger before the rather loud noise of the ground being ripped apart at the back of the group.  There was a noise she recognized as the stubborn charmeleon in pain.... and a voice she didn't recognize.  The guy had gotten hurt, and it was BECAUSE she had sent him to the back!  "Stay here!" she directed the rest of the group before turning back to help the situation.  With the help of Detect, she easily darted through the entire group without so much as bumping into anyone.  Her heightened hearing was more than enough to hear where everyone was due to the simple echoes of her pawsteps.

Shara's speed was extremely high for that of an eevee, and in fact, rapid even for a species regarded as "fast" such as a jolteon.  She was much faster - and stronger - than the average eevee, but she also had a certain ability to amp up her own speed even further: Quick Attack.  She opened her eyes as she neared the commotion, knowing that the light from the charmeleon's tail flame would grant her some visibility, and what she saw.... was just sliiiiiiiightly worrying.  There were two lovely giant steelix who seemed to be fighting, and she knew if they weren't stopped, it would be a serious risk to the entire group.  At that, their noise would probably attract other hostile, aggressive individuals in the area if they weren't stopped.  She heard one speak, which suggested to her that perhaps it could be talked down peacefully, but more importantly, it told her that she could convince it to ally itself with her for the time-being!  The thought of having something like a steelix on her side made her feel a whole lot more confident in her success rate with the difficult crew she'd been given.

To the eevee's dismay, it seemed her hired help had different plans for how to solve the problem.  She could feel the dropping temperature and lightly blowing wind; she knew what was about to happen.  Not only did it go against her plan to try and befriend one of the two steelix, but it was also stupidly risky to whip up a BLIZZARD in the middle of such limited space.  Plus, she highly doubted this random guy was strong enough to take out two steelix and didn't want to see the attention of the two serpents turned to her group.  She bolted toward the glaceon and bit onto his tail to hold him back as he tried to attack.  At first, she just ignored his protests as she wasn't entirely sure of how to word her thoughts, but when he became a bit more.... aggressive, she decided she needed to explain.  With a simple release of the glaceon's tail, she responded: "You can't do that in here!  It could hurt someone, or bring the ceiling down on us!  Plus, one of those things talked, so maybe I can get him to calm down and help us, because trust me, we could REALLY use the help!"
She awaited a response, but instead just got the glaceon hanging his head and looking at the ground like some kind of scolded child.

"Uhg, nevermind, just stay here!" she demanded before leaving him to do whatever he wanted.
To her amazement, the guy actually listened and just continued sitting there, looking all depressed.  Shara had a passing thought about what kind of group she'd gotten herself involved with, but she tried to push it aside for the the moment.  She hopped up onto the tail of the steelix who'd spoke, aiming to try and get up to his head waaaaaaaaaaay up there so that she could properly talk to him.  Perhaps it was a stupid and risky idea to literally climb up someone when she didn't even know if he would react hostilely, but she felt it was worth the risk.  Plus, she was unsure of whether or not he'd even understand her from the ground, even if she screamed at the top of her lungs.

-Dusk-

More uneasy noises made Dusk rather uncomfortable, and the fact that they were kind of just leaving two members of the group behind didn't exactly help much.  She was considering saying something about stopping and waiting for the other two to sort things out and come back when suddenly, a variety of noises from behind made her silence herself.  She turned around and, with the help of her night vision, could see that there was a very large steelix bursting forth from the ground.  As she watched, another steelix followed after, the two seeming like they were in a fight.  But Sova was back there talking to his friend!  She started off running toward them, only to immediately pause due to a very demanding tone from the eevee.  She had been told to stay put, along with the rest of the group.  Her choice of whether or not to listen was an easy one.

She turned back to Acro momentarily and spoke up: "You're not gonna listen to her, right?"
With that, she rushed off toward the others to see if there was any way she could help.  Sure, she knew she wasn't going to be doing anything useful in a fight, at least not compared to some of the others in the group, but maybe she could still help in some way.  She saw Sova just sitting there, which was a shock, and the eevee was........ climbing one of the steelix?  This made her stop and stare in complete, utter confusion.  Was the eevee perhaps trying to get up to its head to aim for its eyes or something?

-Krikka-

The big scary noises continued, coupled with rumbling from the ground, though Krikka wasn't exactly scared by all of this.  Actually, she was GLAD, because it was shutting everyone up.  Their conversations were all beginning to lose their entertainment value, so it was a perfect time to silence everyone.  Then the sources of the noise revealed themselves.... a bit uncomfortably close to her.  This changed how she felt about the situation slightly.  The eevee left her position in the lead and rushed back to help deal with the situation that had arisen, giving the simple command for everyone to stay put.  Krikka, for one, happily obliged and took a seat right where she was.  She contemplated backing away even more, but decided she wanted to stay with what was left of the group rather than move further forward and risk getting caught in a similar situation to the glaceon and charmeleon.

She decided to strike up some conversation with the bird whose aim had almost crushed her while she waited for the situation to solve itself.  The umbreon came closer to her fellow Dark-type and took a moment to settle on a topic.  "Heeey, I'm a bit new to being.... this, sooo is this night vision a dark thing ooor....?" she questioned in the hope of getting some answers from someone who would probably know the answer.
Surely, Linus knew whether or not he could see in the dark considering he was currently in the dark, and maybe he even knew if all Dark-types could.  This seemed like information that would probably end up being useful at some point in the future.

The opposing steelix was obviously intimidated by the steelix that spoke. The nervous one reared its head back and gave a bellow at the larger steelix, continuing to challenge him eve though it was quite obvious the fight was a losing one. The larger speaking steelix did not feel the eevee climbing up him, and went in for the attack. Another bellow shook the caverns as the larger one tackled into the smaller one, the two wrestled with each other in complete ignorance towards the eevee that was crawling all over one of their bodies. The larger steelix crashed into the smaller one once more, this time his jaws opened wide and chomped down on the smaller on in quite a display of power.

The challenging steelix cried out in pain, giving another roar as it struggled to free itself. It struck the body of the steelix rapidly with its tail, but he would not release the steelix until he could hear the crunch of the other pokemon's body followed by another pained screech as the one that spoke took a chunk out of the challenging steelix's body. He released the other steelix as it flailed about, eyes wide in terror before plunging its head into the ground in order to escape.

He allowed the pokemon to escape as he spat out the rocks, giving a satisfied chuckle. It was only then that he realized something quite important...he had an audience! Was one of them crawling on him?

--

Garnet was quite desperately trying to avoid the twisting bodies of the steelix, leaping out of the fray just in time to avoid being crushed by some boulders. There was a loud screech as one of the steelix was injured, he was not quite paying attention as he was too busy getting the hell out of there.

The charmeleon finally reached safe ground just as the familiar steelix spat out the other steelix, causing it to flee. The steelix had turned towards them, staring at them though it was not attacking. Wait-was that the eevee on top of it? He was not too keen on running in for the rescue for someone that had irritated him so much, so he stood to the side.

The steelix's eyes looked to Acro and Dusk as they had approached to apparently watch his fight. It seemed to completely disregard anything the little eevee might have spoken to him or asked him as he spoke, "The hell are y'all doin' here? Pickin' a lil daisy?" he seemed to find some kind of humor in this as he gave a hearty laugh to accompany his large strange smile. Garnet was still trying to pinpoint where he had heard this voice from before, and froze when the steelix spotted him and Sova in particular.

"Eyyyy if it aint my boy George's pals!" The steelix laughed, obviously pleased to see the two.

--

"You're not gonna listen to her, right?" the Umbreon seemed to be speaking to thin air. Acro had decided to charge after the little eevee as soon as she demanded for him to stay put. How about no? She was not his leader, he was not boundd by guild policies to obey her.

The fight had ended quickly it seemed, as quite a large steelix emerged victorious. He stared up at the steelix as it seemed to identify Sova and the charmeleon as a friend. He was a bit speechless at the sheer size of the steelix, the charmeleon's light allowing him to see the steelix in all his glory.

He had never seen a pokemon of quite this size. He looked to Sova and the others as he assessed the situation. The steelix did not seem to be antagonistic, despite its strange expression. He uselessly stood there as he waited to see what would happen. Would they need to fight the steelix? Was it actually a friend?

--

Annnd they were ditched. Wonderful. Linus watched with an irritated expression as they were commanded to stay only for Acro and Dusk to run back to help Sova and Garnet with whatever issue they were going through.

He was just going to sit here and not die thank you very much. It seemed Krikka had a question, however, as she approached him and spoke. He gave a nod, "Yep, comes with the package." How could she not know that? She was a dark type, of course she could see in the dark!

-Sova-

About the same time the eevee started trying to climb up a steelix, Sova began to question his choices that had led up to this moment. He had taken a mission from a suicidal eevee to do something that was probably equally suicidal. He watched his client climb Mount Steelix and somehow not get tossed off to her death while the two massive serpents fought. It was honestly a bit impressive that she didn't end up getting flung off and sent hurdling into the ground. Luckily, the battle of giants ended before the insane eevee could get herself killed. The smaller steelix was defeated and turned into a snack before it fled, and the little mountain climber took advantage of the situation by using the smaller steelix to get to the larger one's head while it was biting. It didn't seem to care.

The large steelix showed its ability to be civil once more by speaking out to the group. Or.... perhaps not "civil," but it was certainly something. His words were a bit odd, but it was clear that he wasn't planning on attacking the group. He then turned his attention to Sova and his charmeleon friend, and that was when he realized why the voice seemed familiar. This steelix was definitely not going to attack them, and perhaps the eevee client was even right about having found a useful ally. "Hey! What're you doing here?" he shouted up to the steelix with as friendly a tone as he could give while speaking loud enough to be clear to someone whose head was so far up.
He wasn't entirely sure if perhaps steelix had heightened hearing, but just to be safe, he spoke loudly. It was absurdly lucky for them to have found this same steelix for a second time, and at a time that his potential help was a welcome surprise once more.

-Shara-

Climbing the steelix was easy at first; Shara had plenty of experience with climbing, especially since she'd literally just climbed a mountain to get to the ruins. It was kind of like that, only a bit more dangerous since the mountain was alive and moving. She tried to rush up as fast as she could before the steelix decided to start moving again, but she didn't get too far. When the ride started, she was on one of the spikes sticking out of the body of the steelix. It was actually pretty easy to hang onto compared to the main body, so she didn't mind. When the two beasts collided, she still nearly lost her grip, but she managed to hold on and continue climbing whenever she felt it was safe.... Well, it was never really "safe," but there were points where it was easier to move without risking falling.

She managed to get pretty high up on her own, but when the larger steelix she was on decided to take a bite out of the smaller one, she got an idea for a much faster way to get to the top. She ran along one of the spikes coming out of the big guy's body and leaped off the edge of it, landing right on the smaller steelix rather gracefully considering the situation. She had landed on the same segment that was having a bite taken out of it. The little spec of an eevee darted toward the larger steelix's head and leaped onto it before it released the smaller one. As soon as the commotion stopped, she collapsed to rest.

"Well- that was- a workout," Shara muttered to herself between her breaths as she laid on the head of the steelix.
"Hey, nice fight," she then spoke a bit louder, hoping to get him to notice her so she could talk about alliances.
It didn't seem to work; instead, the steelix's full attention was put on nearly everyone but her. For a moment, she considered yelling to get the attention, but she was too worn out from the fun times to care. She'd get her chance to talk eventually, surely. Even if she didn't, it seemed like the creature was already interested in her group, so maybe she wouldn't even have to say anything. It seemed to already know some of them from somewhere else. How lucky.

-Dusk-

Dusk got her answer not in the form of a response on Acro's part, but instead from a complete lack of a response or even of Acro in the place he'd been in. He had already run off after the eevee, apparently not even stopping for the slightest moment to consider it. This wasn't exactly surprising since she had done the same and had only really stopped to see if the archeops was coming. She sighed and continued on toward the commotion to try to catch up with the bird and see if there was anything she could do to help. However, getting a good look at the two giant steelix causing the problems made her.... doubt she could do much. Much like her feathered friend, she merely stopped and stared onward at the warring beasts, amazed that such large creatures could even exist.

She watched idly as the larger steelix took down the smaller one, and from its demeanor and behavior, she found herself kind of wishing the other one had won instead. She almost felt sorry for the smaller one, seeing its painful-looking injury and the deranged attitude of its opponent. Still, one winning was still a good thing, she figured. Now they would only have to deal with one steelix, and.... it was speaking to them. Actually, it seemed to be speaking to Acro and herself in specific. Some crazy ramblings that made little sense, but she gathered that it was questioning why they were there. "Uuuh...." she tried to think of some kind of explanation, but nothing really came to mind in the face of the large beast.
Luckily, its attention shifted to some of the others and took the spotlight off of her, which she was relieved for.

-Krikka-

So the ability to see so clearly in the dark was just commonplace among the Dark-type. It made sense, but it hadn't been something Krikka had ever really considered. For a moment, she considered asking Linus about whether or not there were any other surprises for her with her new form and type, but she didn't want to look too clueless, especially not to someone so unpredictable. She figured he'd probably back-stab her upon deciding she was a liability, so she wanted to seem as capable as possible. "Neat," she simply responded in order to acknowledge that she was listening and fill what could have become awkward silence.
She rather liked silence, but talking to someone who shared her bitter hatred for things didn't actually seem too bad.

"Guess it's just us. I wonder if they'll all die?" she joked to what she felt would be a receptive audience.... of one.
It was also her way of testing her boundaries to see how much she could get away with before bringing out the guild member inside the honchkrow. Or maybe there simply wasn't any good inside of Linus at all and he had just ended up a member of a guild through some strange turn of events. Or maybe he was a criminal who liked the idea of hiding in plain sight and having a good reputation. Either way, she wanted to know how far she could go with him, thus she planned to judge his reactions to things very carefully. Having an ally in a guild member for the long run seemed highly appealing, but she doubted she'd get that far.

The charmeleon listened as the steelix explained himself and his appearance in this area. The fire type remained silent as Sova had been the one to engage in conversation with the steelix. He found it quite amusing that the large rock snake was just flat out ignoring Shara, but kept the snickers down to non-existent. Garnet wondered if anyone had the plan to convince the steelix to come with them. Sure he seemed a bit...wild, but he would certainly be useful...besides he was ignoring the eevee, he was good in Garnet's book.

--

Acro watched as the steelix gave a hearty laugh, "What am I doing here? More like what are YOU doing here? I thought you had a bug to catch or somethin'! I heard some prick was rompin around my neighborhood sayin' they owned the place so I came right on back to teach that little shit a lesson. Fucker didn't take too kindly to my return though, but I sure made him regret tryin' to get the jump on me!" The steelix seemed to continue to ignore Clara's existence, not quite feeling any sort of threat from the cute little fluffball...or rather feeling her at all on his massive body.

The archeops remained silent alongside the eevee, not quite sure what to make of the situation other than Sova and Garnet had apparently been reunited with a friend of some sort. His wings were folded to his side as he looked between everyone, being sure to keep an eye on what he could see of the eevee from the charmeleon's tail-light.

--

If they all died? That would...be less than fortunate actually. The honchkrow would appreciate the death of Acro at the least, but the others needed to be alive...that way if there's danger he can't handle they would at least save him. The glaceon would have to at least respect that Acro wanted him to live, right? Eh...on second thought maybe it would be best if Acro did not die until the tail end of whatever this was.

"If they die we're pretty much dead unless we get extremely lucky..." the honchkrow commented, neither laughing nor scowling at the joke. He realized he must have been a kill joy at the moment, but he did not particularly care.

-Sova-

The steelix seemed to be in quite the good mood, which was probably a good thing since Sova didn't want to handle an upset version of this particular steelix.  He'd seen the guy manage to stop a certain demigod of an opponent, and that was something he did not want to bring upon himself.  More-so, he didn't want to bring it unto his allies, considering some of them were.... rather weak.  He took note of the fact that this was apparently the home or.... "territory" of the steelix, which worried him for a moment.  It seemed they were welcome to stay, though, as the steel giant had yet to show any signs of aggression toward them, so the glaceon didn't think much of it.  He figured it was his turn to explain why his group was in the area, partly because he'd been asked and partly because he wanted to make sure the steelix knew they had a good reason for being there.

"Lovely.  We're just here for some guild work; looking for a few outlaws.  And some of us have some.... personal business," he responded as honestly as he was willing to under such circumstances.
He didn't mind this steelix knowing why he was here, as the steelix had earned his trust, but there were others he didn't quite feel the same about.  Specifically, he still wanted to keep as much about the situation from Dusk as possible and was still furious about her deciding to just tag along.  Before he could say anything else or get a response from the behemoth, he could hear the spec of an eevee speak from her perch, seemingly trying to be noticed.  From what he could hear, she wanted to recruit the steelix for their little adventure.

-Shara-

Shara just laid on the cold, metallic, surprisingly comfortable head of the serpent and listened to the conversation, trying her best to stay caught up with what the situation was.  Boring stuff about why the steelix was in the area and why everyone else was in the area.  Then something caught her attention: a mention of missions.  PLURAL, as in they had taken multiple missions??  She couldn't understand what kind of suicidal idiot would take any other missions on top of hers in such a dangerous place.  Another thing that made her very curious was the passing mention of some personal motivation some of the group had for coming to this place.  She didn't think much about the whole thing in favor of taking an opportunity to try once more to communicate with the steel giant and get him to pay attention to her.... and help her.  "Wanna come with us?" she spoke loudly enough that she was confident the guy could hear her even if he decided to ignore what she was saying.

She got up and darted over to one of the large eyes of the steelix to ensure she was visible and hard to ignore, then spoke once more: "There'll be fighting.  We could use your help with that."
This steelix seemed like the type to greatly enjoy violence, or at least he'd certainly seemed to enjoy the fight he had just partaken in, so she figured maybe she could convince him to come along with a promise of violence.  Normally, Shara would have been worried about surprising the steelix by running right in front of his eye, which could have caused him to move and made her have a sliiiightly rough time holding on.  However, he didn't really seem like the type to spook easily, so the eevee wasn't very worried.

-Dusk-

It seemed the steelix was at least friendly and appeared to know some of the group.  Dusk certainly didn't know him.  She wondered what "bug" he was talking about, but it wasn't hard to guess that it was probably something very dangerous if it involved Sova.  Probably something he wouldn't talk about, too, since he just REFUSED TO TALK ABOUT ANYTHING.  "How do they know some random steelix?" she questioned her feathery friend.
She'd gathered that Acro was not one of the ones who knew the steelix from the prior commented that had been directed at both the bird and herself.  The steelix clearly hadn't recognized either of them.

-Krikka-

Either the honchkrow had completely missed the joke or didn't care for humor.  Regardless of the reason, Krikka was almost hurt that her joke had been ill-received.  Of course, it was entirely possible that it simply hadn't been understood to be a joke, but that meant she hadn't been clear enough about it.  "That was a joke," she stated in a deadpan tone that showed she felt it an embarrassment to have to clarify such a thing.
Surely, Linus was either being a jerk or just a bit slow to grasp jokes; there was no way it was her fault, but it still annoyed her.  Then again, everything annoyed her.

More important to her than the missed joke, though, was the bird's apparent opinion on survival.  While she agreed that strength and luck were both quite useful, she was in disagreement with those being the deciding factors in one's own survival.  "And, y'know, strength and luck aren't the only factors in survival.  I've got neither of those on my side and I'm not dead yet," she decided to voice her own view on things.
Sure, losing over 90% of her protection wasn't something she fancied, but she still felt it possible to get out of this Hellhole on her own if she was enough of a genius.  And of course, she was obviously a genius, so there was no problem!

The charmeleon listened as the glaceon and the eevee spoke with the much larger pokemon. He was just going to continue to stay out of the conversation from where he was. Why did trying to get away from the eevee lead it right back towards him? He wanted away from this jerk...he kind of hoped the steelix lifted its head just a bit higher to squish the eevee a bit...teach it a good lesson about ordering others around. Instead, the steelix had finally noticed that he had a flea on top of him.

"Come along? Well sure, i'll give y'all a personal escort through me own turf! I still haven' done no complete scan through it, so there might be another one o' my kind roamin around here somewhere anyways," The steelix answered with quite a large toothy grin.

--

Acro looked to Dusk as she spoke to him. How did those two know some random steelix? He...had no idea. He shook his head, "Haven't a clue..." he spoke. "But...I suppose this is a good thing for us, I mean he seems pretty strong..." the archeops shrugged. He was trying to be a bit optimistic about this, but confusion was still pretty obvious in his expression. So do they just move on now? He decided to simply wait and see. He wondered if sticking around this area was such a good idea, surely that fight must have attracted some kind of unwanted attention right?

--

"They may not be the only factors but they're certainly the main ones. You must have more luck than you think then," Linus spoke to the umbreon. He looked back in the direction the group had run off to, before looking to deeper in the cave. He was actually considering going farther in...maybe he could find another way out? Surely if the group was dead, then the attackers must have been over there as well...or would it be better to try and sneak past? Either way, a wrong move would result in death, something he did not want in his life thank you very much.

-Shara-

The eevee had expected some kind of difficulty in recruiting a random steelix, but the entire thing went over surprisingly easy. He agreed without needing any convincing, bargaining, or begging. It was as if the guy was just really bored.... which, in hindsight, was probably the case. "Great. Hold still for a second," Shara commented and began the trip down the living mountain.
She trusted he would avoid moving long enough for her to get down with no problems, but either way, down was sure to be easier than up had been. She was cautious yet quick at the same time on her way down, not wanting to delay the trip she was hosting. When she was confident that she could jump the rest of the way down without dying, she did just that and landed gracefully on the ground.

"Time to go," came the simple command of the eevee, and right in tune with her own speaking, she started back off on the path forward.
She kept a relatively fast pace, though still slow enough to make sure no one would fall behind.... probably. She decided to just go ahead and close her eyes since they wouldn't be much good once she distanced herself from the charmeleon. Once more, she heightened her other senses to compensate and navigate through the tunnel.

-Sova-

With just a few moments and a few words, there was suddenly a steelix in the group. Sova was surprised at how well it had gone over, but he was happy nonetheless. Or.... perhaps "relieved" was a better word to describe it. As far as he was concerned, this particular steelix being with them dramatically decreased the risk of any of his weaker allies dying. He wasn't worried for his own safety, but someone like Dusk or Linus was a different story. Even if he was annoyed with both of them, he still wanted to make sure they didn't die. The whole thing had been a lot simpler when it was only one helpless idiot who needed to be looked after, but now he had three because Dusk had decided to follow him and apparently thought plus ones were allowed.

The eevee made her way down from atop the steelix, apparently just to reclaim her position of leadership. Sova didn't like the annoying eevee, but he didn't care enough to upset his client in protest of the behavior. He just turned and followed along, still fearing that the little creature was going to get herself killed by insisting to lead the group alone. He didn't like being up at the front with no light and didn't understand why his prevolution was so much more content with it, but nonetheless, he followed as closely behind as he could. Given his lack of proper sight, though, he kept a certain distance to ensure he wouldn't run into her.

-Dusk-

Of course Acro didn't know anything about the steelix, because that would have just been too easy. Dusk sighed and nodded in agreement that having the steelix with them was a good thing regardless. She didn't like not knowing so much about the situation, like who everyone was or why they were even there. She'd gathered that they were in the area for missions, but she was also certain that was not the only reason, nor the most important one. Part of her wanted to pester the archeops and see if she could break him into spilling some secrets, but she had enough sense of morality to stop her from doing such a thing. She wasn't the type to try and get someone to cross his friend just to get some information that she was going to be getting soon enough anyway. She could wait until Sova got wherever he was going.

When the eevee walked by, the umbreon didn't immediately follow along. She instead waited for Acro to go first, as she was not interested in separating from him. He was the only one she really had to talk to at that moment, after all. "Hopefully, we won't end up needing the steelix, but it'll be nice to have the extra protection," she decided to voice her opinion out loud for the bird.

-Krikka-

Krikka did not like having her survival accredited to sheer luck. She was an unparalleled genius who deserved appropriate acknowledgement! Sure, sometimes, she had to act like an idiot to fill a certain role, but that didn't mean she was one. Her mind had gotten her everywhere in life; all of her accomplishments were due solely to cunning and planning. Granted, she had yet to accomplish all that much, but she still wasn't going to stand for someone claiming all she had managed to do was due to luck. "Or maybe you're just mad that not everyone needs luck to survive," she started up, pausing to look directly at the bird with a smirk.
"Not everyone's like you," she continued in a hushed tone just to be sure no one else heard how she was acting.
While she was agitated at Linus' remarks, she still had a clear enough head to know that dropping her nice act around the others was a very bad idea.

Garnet waited for everyone to go before he continued along. He would not be joining the main group, he would just continue to stay in the far back. The encounter with the steelix battle changed nothing for him. The charmeleon watched as the steelix followed Sova, not caring that he was being left behind. He would be fine, what would not be fine is his friend's mission being ruined simply because the small fluff ball decided she wanted to be a commanding overlord. He was not even in a rescue team! What gave her the right to order HIM around? Either way, it would just make things more difficult to fight her. He would remain in the back, that was that.

--

Acro felt a bit bad that he could not answer any of Dusk's questions. He figured it was probably frustrating for the umbreon, but he was just as confused as her to his knowledge. The umbreon waited for him to go at least, so perhaps she did not hate him? She spoke as they began to follow the others, the darkness making it difficult for Acro to recognize where they were going once more. The brightly colored bird heard Dusk's attempt at continuing the conversation by commenting on the use of the steelix. His response? "Oh we're definitely going to need all the help we can get," he informed her, "The targets on my mission are a bit...big."

--

Linus snorted at Krikka's sudden shift to hostility towards him. She was trying to upset him it seemed, but he no longer cared. If she wanted to go on thinking she was miss intelligent, then she could continue down that road if she very well wanted to. The group seemed to be coming back, so he kept his yap shut. "About time," he commented under his breath as he waited for them to continue past him a bit before he began to follow. The honchkrow's wing lifted to adjust the feathered hat attached to his head a bit, before he simply decided to ignore Krikka's comments completely and continue with the group.

-Shara-

For a very short time, everything was calm and quiet.  The annoying firebrand had stuck to the back, the conversing pairs had quieted down, and there was a gap between conflicts.  To the client, it felt.... off, like the calm before the storm, though she knew it was just her being paranoid due to the circumstances of her situation.  It was hard to believe that they were getting such peace during what she had been sure was going to be utter misery.  So far, it had all been relatively tame compared to her expectations, especially considering the team she'd been given was not quite what she had hoped for.  The calm was so out of place in her mind, in fact, that the slightest of sensations sent a shiver down her spine.  She could smell something.... burning?

Shara opened her eyes and saw the darkness ahead, but it seemed to be slightly brighter than what she had remembered.  She then enhanced her vision in an attempt to look ahead and detected what she could make out to be flames burning upon the walls in the distance.  Without the enhanced senses, she was fairly certain she wouldn't have noticed it so soon, but there were definitely lit torches ahead!  "Let there be light!" she spoke up with a tone as she sprinted forward, eager to enjoy the benefits of being able to see.
She forgot about the group momentarily and carelessly bolted ahead, not stopping until she reached the light.... which didn't take too long.  Within a few moments, she was among the lights.  Her happiness and confidence had been revitalized in the revelation that they would all be able to see for their mission....

....Until she realized one very important detail.  "Someone had to light these," the eevee muttered to herself as she backed away from the light.
She could hear the sounds of the group behind her and saw no new faces within the light, and for a second, she felt that maybe everything would be alright.

-Sova-

Silence was not Sova's friend.  He did not like having to be alone with his thoughts, especially when there were so many potential things he could have been doing to distract himself.  He didn't like being in a world of darkness and silence, and his eyes adjusting only did so much to help.  Just when he started to consider trying to start up a conversation with someone to fill the void, his client made some weird comment about light then scurried off to.... somewhere, presumably forward.  He couldn't really see exactly where the eevee was headed, but he could hear her pawsteps, which made it fairly easy to tell.  He gave chase only to find that the tiny eevee seemed to be somehow going faster than him, which was quite the shock.  Nonetheless, he soon understood what the odd comment pertaining to light was about when the torchlight became clear.

He was just barely nearing the client when he heard her start up talking once more, but this time, it was easier to understand.  The torches had to have been lit by someone, and it seemed a certain eevee was not eager to find out who.  "So what's the-" he started up when something in the distance caught his attention and prompted him to fall silent.
He just stared at what appeared to be a white figure further ahead, slowly approaching, not appearing to be in any rush.  Then the figure suddenly seemed to just.... teleport ahead, to just a few meters away from his client.  "....plan," he finished what he had been saying prior.

At a glance, the creature appeared to be an absol, but he recognized a few distinct things that were setting it apart from what he knew absol to generally look like.  First, it wasn't the normal color, rather taking on a more reddish tint where black would normally be.  Second.... it had a few significant physical traits that he did not recall being commonplace among absol, the most noteworthy of which were what appeared to be wings.  He knew what mega evolution was, so of course, this was the first assumption he made.  He could think of no other explanation for an ABSOL WITH WINGS.  "Uuuh-" he started up, only to be interrupted by the absol.

"You will be granted one warning: leave this place or perish."

Its voice was very commanding and deep, yet serene at the same time.  Sova was not impressed.  He could hear that the others were catching up, which meant it was one absol against all of them.  Even if it was stronger than the typical absol, he still wasn't very worried.  With a light chuckle, he responded: "What, and miss out on impending doom?  I'll pass."
He could hear his client protesting the manner in which he was handling the situation, but that was unimportant.  He began to spread his legs apart and crouch lower to the ground in preparation for what he assumed was going to be an inevitable fight.  His fur began to bristle and gloss over with ice as he opened his mouth to give his own warning in response to the absol's threat.

However, he found that he could not speak.

The absol had seemingly vanished from its place, leaving behind a momentary blur along the trail it had taken to reach the glaceon and slam its paw into his chest.  His breath had been taken away from the sheer force of the sucker punch.  He barely understood what had happened due to the fast pace of it all, but the pain that ensued moments later gave him all the information he needed to know.  He fell off of his paws from the sudden sensation of what felt like being stabbed in the chest, unable to breathe as he hit the cold floor.

-Shara-

"I hate being right," she thought to herself as an extremely fast figure with an authoritative demeanor revealed itself.
It wasn't long before her.... hired help began seemingly just antagonizing someone who had yet to attack them.  "What are you doing?  Cut it out!" she urged the glaceon away from his dangerous behavior with a hushed voice, but it seemed the damage was already done.
She just barely managed to catch the cocky bastard being flattened in a blur before the apparent guard's attention was turned toward her.  She just barely managed to step aside in time to avoid a very large paw being slammed into her, then stumbled back when that same paw came down above her like a hammer.

In an attempt to get on the offensive and put some pressure on the foe, Shara bolted for its leg while the appendage was recovering from the shock of being slammed into the hard floor.  The leg gave out from the force as she brushed under it, but she wasn't done.  She then proceeded to bite onto the leg and attempt to use her momentum to drag the absol down to the ground, and despite her small size, this tactic worked.  More specifically, it managed to bring the absol off-balance and cause it to stumble forward to catch its footing.  She then turned around and charged straight for the enemy once more, leaping off the ground in an attempt to ram into its head.  However, she was bested by its quick reflexes and slammed into the ground by a forceful paw just as she was mere inches away from impact.  The air escaped her lungs in the impact, resulting in a rather pathetic whine.

Being crushed under the power of the sucker punch took its toll on the eevee, making it too difficult for her to get back up before the dangerous foe was off to wreak havoc on the others.

-Krikka-

The silence was peace.  Nothing could have been better than all of the idiots shutting up for a while.  Krikka knew it couldn't possibly last long enough, which was confirmed when she heard the eevee speak once more and the nice feeling she had inside suddenly died.  Nonetheless, she decided to follow when the appointed leader and the presumed strongest member of the group both ran on ahead.  They were both quite fast and and the entire group fell behind fairly quickly, but it was fine to her since she was focusing on staying in the middle of the group anyway and had no desire to be near the front.  In fact, by the time she could see the torches, she no longer even desired to follow.  From what she could hear of what was happening ahead, she could tell she wanted no part in it.

She only managed to take a single step back before a sudden flash of white and red was upon her.  It was far too fast for her to attempt to block, leaving her at the mercy of the attacker.  There was the sensation of teeth digging into her tail, then intense force pulling her off her paws and sending her flying toward one of the walls of the cavern.  For a few seconds, it was all black as her mind temporarily shut down from the shock of the impact.  When she jolted back to consciousness, she found herself on the floor with pain all over her body and a headache to boot.  "On second thought, I'd rather have luck," she murmured to herself as she struggled to open her eyes and lean against the wall in order to get up.
Whatever had just hit her had passed by some of the others to do so.  Was it just because her position was convenient, or was she truly unlucky enough to be the random target of a berserk assailant?

As she arose, she heard the jingle of what sounded like shards of glass from within her bag.  It was then that she remembered a few.... goodies she'd had in there, kept partially for their visual appeal and partially for the potentially useful chaos they could create.  Her bag had just happened to end up between her and a wall, crushing the contents.  "Really rather have luck right now...." she emphasized.
The faint sparkles of light springing into existence throughout the area made her sink back to the floor in dread.

She'd been collecting house orbs.

-Dusk-

"Ah...." came the hesitant response of the umbreon.
It seemed like every question she asked was answered ominously and vaguely.  Every bit more informed she became was coupled with amplified worry, perhaps even fear.  She couldn't think of any other way to respond to the implication that they needed a colossus with them.  It seemed that with her own silence, everyone else fell into unison.  All small talk quieted down until the self-appointed leader of the group decided to suddenly run off ahead, followed by Sova.  Suddenly, the name of the game was playing keep-up, but it didn't seem like anyone was remotely capable of staying close to the two.  Acro got closest, and yet even he was left behind.  It didn't take long for her to spot the reason behind all the sudden hustle in the distance.

There were what appeared to be lit torches up ahead, though the light wasn't quite illuminating the area where everyone other than the two speedsters had been left.  Before anyone could even catch up to the leaders, there was a worrisome sound of pain from what sounded like the eevee, followed shortly after by a blur rushing by her.  She turned just in time to see Nope the Umbreon being flung into a wall, but it seemed as if the assailant was a ghost.  She couldn't properly follow where it was with her eyes.  In her attempts to locate the phantom, she came to the worrisome realization that Acro was still in the dark and didn't have night vision!  A faint blur across her line of sight toward the archeops prompted her to quickly speak up: "Acro, look out!"

"Where!?" came the archeops' response.
Of course he wouldn't know where the attack was coming from, and before Dusk could clarify, it was already too late.  A flash of red and white slammed into the bird's chest to knock him off balance before darting behind him for another, more concentrated blow.  This time, she wasn't going to mess it up.  "Behind you, block!" she gave the most clear directions she possibly could.
This time, the archeops just barely managed to get his wings out in front of him in order to block the assailant.  This forced it into immobility for just a moment, but this time was enough to get a good look at it.  The creature looked somewhat like an absol and seemed to be attacking Acro with its horn.

Through the darkness, Dusk could see the absol's sight direct toward her as it backed away from the bird.  Before she could say anything, the absol became a mere blur in her vision once more.  It seemed to vanish from her view entirely just as she felt a tug at her bag.  Before she could even react, she was being spun around by the strap of her bag which was clinging to her.  As soon as the spinning started, it ended with her being released.... up into the air.  She could feel the momentum and feared for how high she was going to go.... and how bad it was going to hurt.  In the panic of the moment, she let out a shrill scream, which was not her proudest moment.  Was she going to hit the ceiling!?  She couldn't see anything with how her body was violently spinning through the air, but she could feel the sheer force propelling her upward.

Luckily, she hadn't been thrown with quite enough force to be formally introduced to the ceiling.  However, perhaps "luckily" wasn't quite the way to put the fact that she was now hurdling toward the ground.  "Acro, help!  Linus!" she frantically pleaded, hoping one of the birds would be able to catch her.

One thing that was working in favor of her not dying was that the foe had already moved onto its next target.  A certain charmeleon was on his way to help and lend his light, but the guardian was upon him nigh-instantly after dealing with its prior target.  A sudden flash of light in front of it placed a sneasel on its path, but it simply mowed the pest down without so much as slowing.  The absol's horn began to glow with a pinkish hue.  It lowered its head to be chest-level with the charmeleon as it neared....

Again, he had been useless to contribute to the conversation. Acro gave a sigh as silence overtook the group as a whole. He has left to his own mind to think as they merely continued on, each step echoed in the cave as the steelix's body scraped against the ground. Everything would change once they got there at least, he would be able to suppress this ability and be of use to everyone! He would be stronger, and he would be capable of protecting everyone.

The archeops spaced out, simply staring at the ground into the darkness and focusing on using what he could hear to determine where everything was. It was difficult, but it prevented him from bumping into others at the least right now.

It had been a surprise to him when he heard the sound of the eevee and the glaceon suddenly taking off. His eyes widened and he began to follow. He could hear a strange voice that sent chills down his spine, causing him to stop and remain in the darkness. Something was not right, he could feel it. That voice and those words were not at all welcoming in the slightest.

"Acro look out!" A voice suddenly called out....

"Where?" He cried back, unable to see what exactly was going on. He was about to say more or even throw up a defensive shield using the rocks around him, but something slammed into his chest and knocked him down. He quickly got back up, fear beginning to take over as he tried to listen for just what was attacking him.

"Behind you, block!" Dusk's voice called as she seemed to get the hint that he was not exactly a pokemon built for the dark caves such as this. He quickly turned around and blocked the attack, trusting the umbreon's words. The attack had connected with his block, minimizing the damage and successfully preventing him from being completely wrecked by the absol that was attacking.

Suddenly, the absol was gone, "Where did it go?" he cried out, hoping for some kind fo answer. He could not see, and he certainly could not focus enough to use his hearing at the moment. His heart was pounding, but if felt as if his heart stopped for a brief moment when he heard a sudden scream from Dusk! The archeops gave a cry of his own as he looked in the direction he had heard the scream, he was not able to see her still! "Dusk!" he cried out in concern.

To his luck, the flashlight that had lagged behind was beginning to catch up. As soon as he could spot her, he took the skies and timed it just right in order for her to fall into his talons. The archeops corrected himself in his flight, gripping onto the umbreon in a successful rescue before making his way towards the ground and deliver her back to safety. His eyes widened in horror as he caught sight of Shara and Sova, shit what was he to do?! Panic began to overcome him, he looked over to the source of new light to see Garnet. He was about to tell the charmeleon to just run, it was futile to fight, but the lizard was already being sent through a wall it seemed.

His heart began to pound. Useless! Coward! Stupid! Unreliable! The words were surfacing in his mind as he realized that he was simply freezing up. He had not even let go of the umbreon yet despite landing! He released the dark type as soon as he realized it. His every instinct was telling him to run, but how was he going to get Shara and Sova out of here along with Garnet? Why were MORE pokemon suddenly appearing?! Were they hostile?

The archeops was frozen to his spot, unable to move or take action as the Defeatist ability kicked in.

--

The steelix watched as the pokemon he recognized as the guardian approached. At first, he had thought little of it. He figured the absol would see that he was a native, and these were simply friends of his, but nope. The steelix's big smile faded into a displeased look of rage. The steelix said nothing as he suddenly dived down into the ground, planning to wait until the absol stopped moving before he would erupt from underneath it and smash it against the ceiling.

--

Linus was thankful for the silence, up until the nasty little voice started to speak up again. He found himself just imagining being able to take on everyone here with ease. A sweep of his wing and they would all vanish into darkness. Unfortunately for him, that was not the case. He was surprised when he found that an absol had approached them.

The absol had moved to attack the glaceon, and he was already in the process of staying the hell away. He was just about to fly up high, when he heard the sound of glass cracking. He looked over to Krikka, hearing her wish for luck.

"What. Did. You. Do?" He demmanded, not caring if she had done it on purpose or not. His answer came in the form of plenty of pokemon appearing...oh shit. The bird's eyes widened as an absol locked eyes with him. It was not big and fancy like the red one, but it certainly did not look happy to see him as it began to charge towards him. The honchkrow gave a loud squawk as it charged towards him. He flared his wings out and attempted to fly up. His talons were outstretched towards the absol, clinging onto the horn once the absol tried to attack and using the beast to propel himself up and out of the beast's reach.

Screw this, these fuckers were on their own!

--

He could hear nothing from the group ahead, not even hushed whispers. He did not care. He was simply taking one step at a time, making his way forward but maintaining a fair bit of distance from them. He looked up as soon as he heard them begin to run, someone speaking, and suddenly he heard the sounds of combat. The hell?! His walk burst into a run as he hurried to help his friends.

He was confident they were going to be fine, but once he got there he was beginning to have second thoughts about that belief. He arrived just in time for the absol to finish its business with the Archeops, deciding that Garnet's presence was a hindrance since he brought light for the opponents to see with.

The fire type had little time to react as the horn was sliced across his chest, creating a wound. The charmeleon cried out in pain, but he would not allow himself to simply topple over because of that. The lizard hissed and growled at the Absol as he took the opportunity to latch onto the absol. His body began to glow a slight purple as his eyes began to widen. He was thrown into a frenzy as he used Outrage against the Absol.

The mega pokemon lifted its fore-paws and shoved the charmeleon off from its neck, drawing a bit of blood but failing to do much damage due to the thick fur that protected the absol from the elements. Garnet fell back tot he floor, but immediately propelled himself right back at the absol.

The guardian of the ruins avoided the attack with ease as more guardians seemed to start appearing around the lizard. Garnet hissed as he looked between them, trying to deciper which was real and which was false. Once he picked one, he launched himself for an attack. To his misfortune, it was a fake. He was surprised as the absol rammed into him once more with the blade, creating another cut on his side.

He swiped to his left, trying to get the absol before it backed off, but failed to be quick enough. The absol had moved out of the way and jumped right back at the charmeleon with a significantly more concentrated attack. The charmeleon could spy the real absol just as it started to emit a faint white glow. The absol charged forward, seeming as if it was flying rather than running with the wings upon its back.

The charmeleon took in a deep breath and blasted a breath of fire at the absol. The dark type ran straight through the flames as if it had been nothing and slammed right into the charmeleon. The fire type's body flew through the air into the side of the cave wall making a nice hole that seemed to lead to a new tunnel. The guardian flicked its heard with a movement of its head, not even panting from the attack as the wall above the charmeleon began to crumble and bury him.

-Shara-

Despite her small size and weak species, the eevee managed to pull herself together rather quickly.  She was panting to catch her breath after having it ripped away from her, but she knew she needed to move.  The glaceon was somehow still on the ground despite being knocked down before her and having a more durable body, which was astounding.  "Get up!" came her simple demand, but she didn't stick around to see if it had any effect.
The absol who had attacked them was no longer nearby, so she assumed it was now back in the darkness, giving the rest of her group the same treatment she'd just received.  The distinct sounds of combat further enforced this theory.

Shara moved as fast as she could, barely managing to duck and slide under the legs of an absol as it suddenly appeared in front of her.  It didn't take her long after noticing the flashes of light mysteriously summoning a crowd to piece together that a house orb had been used by someone.  Or.... perhaps more than one.  She'd have to have a word with whoever had done it if they were a part of her group, but there were currently far more important things to worry about, such as not dying.  She hurried through the growing danger, avoiding bumping into anything for as long as she could in the light of the torches.  When she was finally out of the reach of the light, she went back to detecting everything around her, which was admittedly less effective than actually being able to see.  Still, she managed to get by without bumping into much.

She wasn't left in the dark for long before a familiar flame came into view, and for the first time, she was glad to see it.  For just one moment, she could see.... the horn of an absol coming right for her.  Luckily, this one wasn't nearly as fast as the one who'd formally introduced her to the floor, which was very lucky since the charmeleon's flame was hidden once again almost as soon as she'd come into range of it.  She avoided the swing of the absol's horn with ease, her tail taking on a metallic sheen and color as she did so.  When the foe's head came back for another strike, she spun around and slammed her tail - which now held a silver color - into its face.  The blow didn't quite knock it out, but it fell to the ground with clear trouble getting back up.

-Dusk-

As if by an answered prayer, the charmeleon decided to bless the group with his light, which Dusk knew revealed her to those who needed to see her.  She subconsciously held her breath as she waited for the feeling of either being grabbed out of the sky or slamming into the ground below.  She doubted it would kill her, but not being caught certainly sounded painful and rather dangerous.  To her relief, rather than the ground, she felt the distinct grip of talons.  A sigh escaped her mouth as she dangled and allowed herself to be carried down safely.  When her carrier reached the ground, she expected to be released yet found herself gripped between the talons of the bird.  She thought about saying something, but what was she supposed to say?  It was somewhat of an awkward situation from her perspective.  Thankfully, Acro released her before she had to point out that she was kind of being held captive by her savior.

And now he was just.... standing there.  Dusk understood that this bird could not see in the dark like she could, but still, she'd expected him to at least try to do something!  Maybe he needed some kind of directions to help guide him, and it wasn't that she was unwilling, but she didn't really know where to begin.

-Krikka-

Linus had apparently overheard her self-loathing and pieced together that she'd done something problematic.  Krikka wasn't worried about upsetting him in light of the more immediate dangers present at the time, so she merely responded with a strained laugh.  She had never been one to take kindly to demands.  Not that any of it mattered since the bird's attention was already being captivated by their lovely guest.  With nearby foes hopefully being distracted by a mobile, flying target, the umbreon decided to stop laying around and get moving.  She lifted herself up once more and darted off in the direction of the light as fast as she could move.  She stayed close to the wall and low to the ground in the hopes that no one would take note of her scurrying by.

Of course nothing could be so easy.  Just as she began to near the light, she noticed an absol coming at her from her peripheral vision.  She managed to stop just in time for the absol to ram its head into the wall directly in front of her and stumble back in recoil.  While the absol recovered, Krikka sprinted as fast as she could with her aching body in an attempt to reach the glaceon who just happened to be getting up at the time.  She could see his gaze set upon her for a moment before he suddenly blew past her so suddenly it almost caused her to fall against the wall at her side.  The distance he'd covered in such a small time frame was.... well, not really particularly shocking with what the thing that had attacked her earlier had done, but it was still unexpected and hard to follow.

She turned around just in time to see the absol being sent off its paws, flying backward by a hit from the glaceon.  "Thank-" she began just as her savior charged into the darkness.
He was certainly in a hurry to get wrecked by the super-absol again.  "....You," she decided to finish what she had been about to say even if she was the only one to hear it.

-Sova-

For a moment, everything was a bit fuzzy and out of focus.  His body felt almost.... numb, yet there was a distinct sense of pain.  The blow had certainly been powerful, and it took him some time to manage to catch his breath after having it torn away from.  While he was still on the ground, he could hear the familiar voice of his client shouting rather rudely for him to get up.  This humiliation of being shown up by his prevolution and client was enough to make him try to get up, but his body refused to respond.  Slowly but surely, he forced himself off the floor and regained his bearings.  The first thing he saw upon getting up was the blue-ringed umbreon who'd come with Dusk being chased by an absol, although thankfully not the one he'd just had the pleasure of meeting.

Regarless of what his body said in protest, Sova was on the absol in moments.  He was still too weak to do any fancy moves to deal with the foe, so he settled for just ramming into it as hard as he could, which seemed to get the job done.  The absol was sent flying away from him, and before it even hit the ground, he was already off into the darkness.  He doubted he could do much without proper sight, but it would surely be better than doing nothing at all.  Just as he was about to call out for the others, he heard Dusk's voice from nearby, indicating her position.  However, it wasn't a very relieving moment considering what she said.

-Dusk-

The two who'd gone ahead were now on their way back to the group, which Dusk had mixed feelings about.  Sure, they'd be helpful and all, IF THEY COULD SEE.  Sure enough, Sova was almost instantly in trouble as the behemoth of an absol set its sights on him once more.  However, oddly enough, the little eevee seemed to be navigating surprisingly well for being literally blind.  The one good thing about the situation for Dusk was that she now had a good idea of what she needed to do.  She spoke up without hesitation, already having a bit of experience with how to give out directions to the blind thanks to Acro: "Sova, in front of you!"
But despite how fast she'd tried to get the command out, it still wasn't fast enough to keep up with the beast's speed and give Sova time to react.  She watched helplessly as the absol neared him and lowered its head, lining its horn up with his neck.

To her surprise, despite being certain that she'd been too late in her command, what she saw was the glaceon cleanly avoiding the blow.  The lighting was a bit better since the torch-lit path wasn't too far ahead, but it was still extremely dark.  Yet despite that, it seemed almost as if he could.... see.

-Sova-

Not even a few seconds into the darkness and he was already in trouble.  Dusk's warning came a bit too late, but he didn't need it when he could hear the rapidly approaching pawsteps.  His racing mind recalled that the horn was on the right side of the absol's head, and from there, his body seemed to move on its own.  He stepped to the left to ensure he would at least avoid the horn if that was where the attack was coming from, but he ended up escaping the blow altogether.  He could feel the wind whipped up by the absol brushing so close by him.  He listened for the sounds to indicate another attack, but instead, he heard his client's voice.... taunting their dangerous foe.

-Shara-

There was certainly enough noise to get a good idea of where everything was in the darkness, which the eevee was thankful for.  She managed to pinpoint the important target fairly quickly and made the highly intelligent choice to run right into it.  First, she swiped in the general area of the guardian with her metallic tail, managing to scrape one of its legs.  She then backed away in a predictive measure just before one of the absol's front paws reached out to slam into her.  "Guess that flashy show earlier was just a fluke," her voice took on an eerie echo as she spoke.
Just as she'd hoped, the absol came barreling toward her in response.  It was just as fast as usual, but its movements were just careless enough for her to slip between its legs as it ran right over her.

"I think I almost felt the wind from that one," Shara pushed the guardian even further.
It then spun around and bolted straight toward her at the same startling speed it had displayed earlier, almost tripping her up.  She unsteadily stumbled to the side and narrowly avoided what she felt could have been the end of her.  With the beast successfully focused on her, she turned and made a break for the light as fast as she could go.  She could hear the steps of the absol behind her.  "If I stop, it's gonna reach me before I can do anything.  If I keep going.... it's still gonna reach me," her thoughts raced to find a solution that simply wasn't there.
She'd successfully become bait, but now there was no way for her to escape the reckoning that was about to befall her.

"I hate them," the eevee thought rather nonchalantly to herself.

-Sova-

The client was leading the mega-absol into the light, away from everyone else.  But could she handle it on her own?  Sova found himself doubting one lone eevee's capability to do such a thing, especially since she'd just been flattened by this very same foe moments prior.  Then again, so had he, but still.  "Acro, get out.  Get everyone out of here.  I'll be right behind you, but I've gotta go get my suicidal client first," he spoke in half-honesty.
In truth, he was dwelling having to go fight the thing that had just effortlessly defeated him, and he got the feeling he wouldn't exactly be right behind the others.  He was assuming the archeops was still conscious and around, but he figured he would be corrected if it turned out he was wrong.

As expected, he was met with immediate refusal from Acro.  Well, at least that meant the guy was still around, but now there was the problem of convincing the others to leave him behind.  Acro was quite vocally hesitant, while Dusk's silence said enough to imply she was feeling similar.  The glaceon ran the situation through his head briefly before deciding on what he felt to be the best course of action.  "Okay," he muttered in defeat.
He wasn't planning on giving in to what the others wanted, though.  They essentially wanted him to leave his client behind.  Everyone was getting out alive....

....Even if they all hated him for it.

The faint, purple glow of a Shadow Ball formed in front of Sova, slightly illuminating his face for a mere second before firing straight where Acro's voice had come from.  "Any more complaints?" he questioned mostly to see if the archeops was still conscious.
When he received no response, he assumed Acro was out cold.  "Now, Dusk-" he began, only to have the umbreon finally speak up and cut him off.

-Dusk-

First Sova managed to avoid a direct strike from an opponent in the dark, then the eevee they were forced into companionship with proceeded to pretty much dance around it, taunting it all the while.  The whole "seeing in the dark" thing was starting to feel a whole lot less special to Dusk.  What was more important, though, was the fact that the two who were defying logic seemed to want to sacrifice themselves so that everyone else could escape.  She, for one, was not going to have anyone else put their life on the line just to save hers!  It seemed Acro felt pretty much the same way as her, so she decided to just let him do the talking for her since he was the first one to speak up.  She expected this conversation to end with Sova giving in and coming with them, but instead, it took a startling turn.

There was the brief light of a Shadow Ball leading into an explosion enveloping the archeops.  He was sent flying off his talons and onto the ground, very clearly unconscious from the blast.  Sova then started to speak again, this time with such a cold, heartless tone.  She wasn't having it.  "What is WRONG with you!?  He's your ally, your friend, isn't he!?  How could you-" she began to rant, only to receive the same treatment she'd just given the glaceon in being cut off.
His response made her fall silent and just watch him dart off after the eevee.  After a moment of sitting around being sad, she did her best to shake it off so that she could focus on what was currently important: grabbing the bird and dragging him to somewhere safe.  The first place she spotted was the hole in the wall created from the charmeleon's impact.  That seemed like a pretty good place to go, both since it was away from the commotion and because that was presumably where the aforementioned charmeleon was currently located.

Acro actually wasn't too heavy, although he was still too large to properly carry.  Despite being forced to drag her luggage to the escape route, Dusk still managed to make pretty good time.  It was a relief that most of the pokemon who'd been warped in seemed to be too busy being confused to take notice of her.  She noticed the other two, edgier Dark-types coming toward the hole too and decided to enlist their help.  "Hey, help me carry this guy," she requested, only to be shunned by both of them.
They only cared about themselves?  That was fine too; she knew exactly how to handle someone like that.

"Let me rephrase....  Come carry Acro now or I guarantee Sova's gonna put both of you in far worse shape than him later."
That did the trick.  The two heartless monsters decided to change their tune and come carry the bird, albeit without much care, but all that mattered was that he was being pulled away from the chaos.  With that out of the way, the umbreon ran into the newly revealed path and immediately noticed a distinct lack of a certain flame.  It took her a moment to realize there was rubble all over the ground and the charmeleon had to be under it.  Sure enough, as she moved rocks in her search, a bit of light began to shine through.  She picked up her pace until she had uncovered enough of the charmeleon to grab him by an arm and pull him out.  After that, she hoisted him over her back and bit onto one of his arms to make sure he didn't fall, then moved to catch up with the others.

She was being forced to leave Sova behind, and she hated it, but she knew there wasn't much she could do about it.

-Krikka-

Just when she felt like she would be safe, one of the group decided to drag the walking death machine back into the light where it came from.  Krikka didn't stick around to watch what she assumed would be a rather one-sided fight between the eevee and the horror of an absol.  Instead, she simply ran right back into the darkness and toward the others.  Since the entire hall seemed relatively unsafe, she decided to the convenient hole that would hopefully get her away from all the action.  She made a break for the new path but paused upon hearing the lesser umbreon attempt to issue a command to her.  "Why?" she questioned bluntly before continuing toward freedom.
Then the pest spoke once more, this time making her really consider her options.  She was being threatened, and it was a pretty good threat.  This was absolutely infuriating, but at the same time, some small part of her felt a slight bit of respect toward the other umbreon for showing something other than weakness and idiocy.

Rather than getting a death warrant put on her, she begrudgingly moved to help Linus carry the stupid dead bird.  She lifted from underneath while the one with wings lifted from above, and over-all, it wasn't too hard with both of them.  Still, it was more work than she was happy to do for someone else's sake, but the alternative seemed even less appealing.

-Sova-

"He wanted me to leave my client behind. You can either follow in his steps or make sure he gets out alive," was Sova's simple response to the Dusk's protest.
The umbreon then fell silent, indicating her choice. With everything as close to "sorted out" as it was going to get, Sova turned to follow after his client and the beast pursuing her.  He pushed his body as fast as it would go, and perhaps he would have been able to catch up to the eevee, but the absol was gaining ground much faster.  It was already too far ahead of him and still moving faster.  To make matters worse, he couldn't help but notice a beartic coming straight toward him from the light ahead.  He wasn't too confident in his ability to avoid this obstacle completely and be able to make up for lost time.  He already had far too little time to work with in the first place!  The only thing he could think to do was to just.... stop.

The beartic came running at him on all fours, closer and closer, and all the while, he remained perfectly still.  When it was mere feet from him, his mouth opened and unleashed a vibrant white beam of light that easily mowed the foe down.  He then kept the beam going and redirected it to hit the all-powerful absol in its back legs.  His Hyper Beam did surprisingly little damage to the guardian, but it was slowed enough for the eevee to move out of the way and allow for it to pass her.  That was the immediate problem solved, but now they were both in a whole lot of trouble.

(Shara's move set - Detect, Quick Attack, Iron Tail, Shadow Ball, Swagger, Last Resort)

Hello darkness his old friend. He's come to talk to you again. In all seriousness it was dark, his entire body refused to move, and overall he was not having a very fun time. Garnet could feel the weight of the rocks on top of him, but could not make a move to do anything about it. He heard voices outside, but they were muffled. Not to mention he was having difficulty understanding anything at the moment.

He heard the sound of digging was heard before he was eventually revealed to more fresh air. Someone had lifted him over their body, someone short from how it felt. His claws and tail dragged across the floor.

He felt an urge to lash out at whoever was touching him, but his body seemed to scream at the very thought of moving. Instead a deep pained growl escaped his throat in a pathetic attempt of being intimidating towards the perceived threat.

Acro was shocked that Sova would suggest that he just leave them there. It would have been better if they had just left while the absol was busy with the-wait, what was he thinking? It had only just then hit him that he had just been completely willing to sacrifice some stranger's life. He can't say that he regretted it, but it kind of disgusted him.

He was an explorer, he should have been trying to save everyone! This only fed fuel to the fire as he objected to leaving Sova behind. He was a bit relieved when Sova seemed to admit defeat. He was just about to add on a bit more, encourage some kind of other plan, when he was interrupted. Again.

This time? A shadow ball to the face. For being in the dark, the glaceon had struck Acro pretty spot on. He was knocked out clean from the attack, and left to the mercy of whoever decided to carry him around as he was greeting the same darkness Garnet had just earlier.

Ugh, great, now he was assigned to carrying the damn bird. He wasn't heavy, but he detested Acro more and more as the trip went on. Krikka had to help it seemed, but the honchkrow was still not a fan in the slightest. He huffed, showing that he was obviously against this motion despite his obedience.

He picked up his half of the near dead bird, this was going to be a pain, he could already tell. The bird was just going to wake up later on and ramble about how they should have given him a reviver seed or something wasn't he? Linus snorted, he would just stay out of that mess completely if it got around to it.
