First topic message reminder :

(OOC: A continuation of Slushy Water)

Unlike the environments of the Small Pond, or other areas around the town, Grassveil itself was comparatively lacking in obvious effects of the winter weather. Snow could still be seen, but diligent public servants left and right were making zealous efforts to clear it away. Fire types de-iced roads with ruthless efficiency, all the while other pokémon went on with their busy lives just like every other day. A couple of the less industrious shopkeepers had decided to close up shop as a result of the weather, while others took advantage of the cold by advertising their stalls, shops and eateries with signs painted up with images of warm beverages and cozy fires.

Clovis, travelling back from the small pond not too far away, walked, or rather, strutted his way through the entrance to the shopping district, travelling over to find a restaurant or inn where he could sit down for a meal, oh so generously paid for by someone he was recently acquainted with, a kecleon named Yooka. He had been entrusted with choosing where to eat, and, truthfully did not very much enjoy being put on the spot...! Still, however, he had to stick to his word and make up his mind. Before he would head any further towards where he thought the good restaurants were, however, he turned to check on his companion, as well as get a good look at where he was. Urban areas were, admittedly, a bit depressing when the snow was actively being cleared. It seemed as though the citizens of Grassveil didn't quite share the same romantic view of winter that he did.

"Mmm hmm. Must have been a big pawn shop, then." Said Clovis, rather facetiously. Yooka made it clear that she didn't very much enjoy talking about Rainfront, or her father. I suppose she doesn't think it's my business, then. Fair enough. The piplup stirred his fork around, and tried to think of something to say. "Did you plan on staying here after you complete your apprenticeship? I can't imagine they'll let you stay with the guild forever." Hopefully this topic wouldn't be the cause of more... stress in the pokémon sitting across from him. "Is 'explorer' considered a permanent profession in guild circles?" That was a little thing that bothered him about the guild. It attracted so many young 'mons, but what good did it do to prepare the youth for finding more stable, and less dangerous sources of income? Granted, it was certainly more flashy and lucrative than tilling fields or laboring in a mine. Kind of strange for me to be so young and yet so concerned about this sort of thing. Yooka looks a few years older than me, surely she's given this some thought. I wouldn't want to be some dirty old peasant either, but it's not like everyone that goes through the Explorers' Guild becomes a renowned treasure hunter, or a powerful 'mon-at-arms.

Clovis stuck little dumplings into his mouth one-by-one as Yooka spoke. A couple of the things she said sounded, well, not strange, but, unexpected. Clovis was a bit surprised to learn that Yooka lacked an exploration team, for one. While he had no first-person experience with the guild, he did recall learning at some point that the guild made heavy use of the buddy system during its explorations and contracts. And when she instructed him not to touch her badge without permission, he was right and truly offended by her implication that he had messed with it! Even though he had. But it was the accusation that was so bothersome! Regardless, he kept listening. Yooka went on to discuss her badge, and at one point claimed to be capable of achieving 'silver' rank. Clovis lacked much knowledge of the guild's badge hierarchy, but silver was a rather valuable metal, so surely it must be a high rank. Bragging, I see. If you're so worthy, then why are you still but a lowly grey? Of course, the piplup dared not to speak his thoughts aloud. Afterall, that would be rude, and to speak such a blatant insult directly to someone's face would be downright uncivilized.

So still he sat and listened. Now, Yooka discussed Aileron. She had mentioned this town before, if he remembered correctly, and indeed Clovis had heard of the floating town many times before. He had never been there, and as far as he could tell, no one that couldn't fly had ever been there either. And then... the kecleon placed a map on their table, and began pointing all over the map at little drawn 'X's. But these 'X's didn't mark buried treasure, but rather places the kecleon believed to be possible locations of the mysterious flying village. She relayed a bit more information about Aileron to him, and Clovis thought about putting in some input of his own... but then Yooka asked him why he was so curious about the guild. The piplup gave a swift and dismissive answer, "I'm just making conversation." and then began to speak of Aileron, the topic most to his interest for the time being. "Anyways, Aileron isn't a very big place, I don't think. But if it's important enough that someone with as little connection to it as I have heard of it, then surely your guildmaster, or a local librarian can help you out here. Aileron probably trades for its supplies with us down here on the surface, so I'm sure that the place's location isn't quite so hard to find as you may have thought. Frankly, Yooka, you may have been overthinking this. Just find yourself a winged merchant and ask for directions, 'tis truly that simple." This solution made sense to him, and was probably the course of action he would have took in her situation.

Clovis showed his 'agitated bird' face when he heard Yooka laughing, even just to herself. He couldn't help but get the impression that she was laughing at him for whatever ridiculous reason. He was right about to ask just what in the world was so funny, when Yooka started to talk about the map again. She had constructed her own theories about the floating aisles. Clovis couldn't help but feel as though her theory was a bit flimsy, what with being based primarily on rumours, but she had put more time than him into this particular subject, so perhaps she was on to something... and then, she starting laughing about something else. About, what? The residents of Aileron being smart or something? But one thing was certain, and that was that Yooka was very, very excited about this village.

A lot of the information Yooka was relaying just seemed dubious to him. While he couldn't disprove anything she had said, he couldn't think of anything to back up her statements either. Another thing she mentioned, the practice of flying birds to migrate, was certainly a real concept, but an obsolete one, ever since the advent of agriculture, controlled fire, and brickmasonry- all technologies much older than either him or Yooka. Granted, if the floating islands did indeed do the migration automatically, then all the better for them.  But regardless, an island moving perfectly in time with bird migration paths seemed far too perfect to exist purely as coincidence. But the the idea that pokémon somehow controlled the island's movement was even more ridiculous. How could anyone push something so big?

Ah, but Yooka wasn't satisfied with just knowing about where the village was. She actually wanted to get there. Alone. "That's ridiculous." Said Clovis. "You're not getting up there without saddling yourself to the back of a charizard, unless you plan on throwing yourself from the top of Black Mist Mountain." Judging by the way she talked about height, gear and timing, she probably was. How absurd!

There it was- the legendary kecleon color change. It clearly wasn't camouflage, no, she had changed to purple as the result of some rather strong emotions. Yooka's growing frustration was made rather clear when she slammed her fist into the table. Or perhaps she was having a realization? Certainly she had realized the impossibility of reaching a floating island without wings before, right? Either way, Clovis began to speak his mind about all this. "I suppose it's worth mentioning that, even such a mighty bird as an empoleon could not take to the skies if it tried. This seems fair; if we had been created with wings good for flying just as much as for swimming, our species could very well become too glorious." He took a long, prideful breath before continuing. "It may be difficult for you to admit defeat in this case, but if you hope to visit this friend of yours, I'd suggest giving up on getting there alone and having someone else ferry you up there." Then he sat back, satisfied both with the wisdom he had just imparted, and with the meal he had just finished.

Clovis chuckled when he heard the kecleon's... compliments? He did certainly consider himself to be 'quite' the piplup, regardless of whatever else had been said. Yooka seemed to believe that his wisdom was more befitting of a mature prinplup, or, "prinny", as she had pronounced it. He couldn't disagree- but, erm, he couldn't recall saying anything in particular that would cause her to believe this either. All he had done was tell Yooka that she couldn't fly, a fact which she (hopefully) was already well aware of.

Regardless, Clovis did like to be praised. And talked about. And here Yooka was, asking if she could see him again after he had evolved. Presumably, this was out of curiosity regarding the effects of pokémon evolution; but Clovis did not think it was too much of a stretch to assume that she would want to see him again on account of his ever-so amiable and suave personality. He laughed just twice quickly, and told his reply. "Well heh heh, Yooka, when I do evolve into a prinplup, I might just find the time to give your door a knock. What makes you ask, anyway?" He kept his ears open and attentive while he awaited an answer, but in the meantime, his eyes began to focus on the desert menu sitting on the side of the table.

Clovis had learned the meanings of many words, but 'philomath' was not one of them. From context, he could pick up that it was a noun or title used to refer to someone that enjoyed learning. Whether this was purely a hobby for Yooka, or if she incorporated her educational pursuits into her job, Clovis didn't know. The pursuit of knowledge is admirable, I guess. Good on her. Evolution was a subject that Clovis wondered on, too. It was something that he was sure to experience, but his parents had never told him anything about it, and Clovis had never asked anyone else about it either. It was a bit of an awkward subject to discuss too deeply. The thought of some of the changes he could wind up going through sent shivers down his spine.

Ick. Clovis turned his mind away from his... imagination... and back towards what was going on around him. He heard a waiter mention the price of their meals, which sounded reasonable, if slightly padded by the prices of their drinks. Clovis let Yooka say whatever she would say to the waiter and picked a few coins out of his wallet, to leave on the table as a tip. The value of the tip was roughly 20% of the price of the entire meal, but Clovis didn't bother with the exact mathematics. Clovis sat and waited with a slightly lighter wallet, and a number of nervous thoughts about evolution racing through his mind.

(Yep yep, time to wrap up.)

Regardless of what Yooka said, Clovis still left some money on the table as a gratuity to the waiter. He did, however allow Yooka to cover the costs of the meal itself. What did bother Clovis was the fact that Yooka supposedly kept 'all' of her money with her 24/7. He had enough sense to know that carrying all of your money at once was a good way to get robbed. What was the old saying about that? 'Don't put all your eggs in one basket?' Goodness, he hoped his egg wasn't kept in a basket. Even if it was natural to be suspicious of the banks, keeping more poké with you than you could afford to lose just sounded like a bad idea.

Ahhh, not my business anyway... Clovis stood up from his seat and followed Yooka as she walked away. He asked but a single, simple question. "Don't you worry about losing that, what with keeping all your money in a little bag?" He would let her deal with opening the door on their way out, as she was much larger and could probably handle it better.
