[ Aradia looks way too cheerful when the feed comes on, considering she appears to be outdoors and in the thick of the chaos, happily in the midst of the rampaging fossil-types. A few fossil types seem to be surrounding her protectively, though - two Kabutops and a Carracosta, with two Aerodactyl in the sky.

In light of the event, everyone except her Gengar partner - who can be seen in her shadow, his grin flickering - was changed over to backup, since it seemed more fair to allow the fossil-types to join her in her explorations.

The chaos apparently bothers her not at all. ]


Isn't this fantastic? [ ...like, not a little bit, she's far too excited for that. ] All of them back from the dead...!

It can be a bit confusing, at first. Coming back from the dead, I mean! No wonder they're upset. But more importantly - aren't they fascinating? And that there's that sort of power here, to bring fossils back to life...Of course, Brock did mention the machine he uses in Pewter, but this isn't that. It's the power from one person, right? It's just fantastic.

I haven't ever managed to see some of these in person before today...! Just notes on their fossils in my books, and that sort of thing. [ And she may or may not have been out since midnight last night, when it started. Because...fossils. ] There's so much to learn before it's done!

Oh, if anyone learns anything interesting or sees anything interesting, please do tell me!! I can only watch so much of it at once. [ There's a great deal of noise off to the side, as one of the Kabutops unleashes a water attack on some approaching Kabutos. Aradia looks off to see what happened, and though she looks intrigued, she's still not concerned or upset. Just...really happy. ]

Well, I'd better go. We're helping out, for now, since it means I can explore a bit more and see how the fossil types are reacting...

Ooooh, what's that?

[ And she's out. HAPPILY. Those in Celadon can find her poking around and trying to study the rampaging hordes - or occasionally lending an assist to stopping them, although her pokentourage is more into that then she is. ]
timelymaid: art by <user name=strovi site=tumblr.com> (+ let's blow shit up.)
[ This entry takes place in the dark. The dark of a hotel room! ...In the day, so the blinds are drawn shut. Why? Because Aradia has received only the world's most fantastic shirt. It glows in the dark! Specifically, it is a Haunter shirt...and lit by the dim glow of the shirt and the light from the gear, Aradia can be seen. Why yes, she is also wearing Dad's fedora, a hat that only a few people would recognize, and her hair is actually not crazy - for which you can thank Kanaya, whose disappointment in this ensemble may be sensed through the screen. Aradia, this is not fashion. ...And no one but Kanaya can even see the fact she's probably wearing her omanyte toe socks, which don't help matters. And those are also from John, come to think of it.

Aradia is also wearing what is probably an unconsciously creepy grin. Whoops. That's what happens when you post from a dark room and have a tendency towards unsettling people sometimes?

After a moment of grinning in silence, she'll actually stop that and talk, though. ]


Hi!!! This is Aradia. [ In case you couldn't tell. ] And this is the best shirt ever! John sent it to me! He has one like it, too, and I said it was amazing and now I have my very own! Isn't that just fantastic? I had to turn out the lights to let you all get the proper effect!

[ ...But now that you've gotten it, she'll actually turn the lights back on. Aradia's sitting crosslegged on a hotel bed, presumably in Mahogany from the music, and in the light her grin is a bit less eerie. Sort of. ]

That's not the only reason I wanted to post, though! Actually, I have something I need help with. See, ghost and fossil pokemon are my absolute favorites! And while getting ghost pokemon just requires catching them, fossil types are...well, a little bit harder. I only have a few species: Kabuto's line, Aerodactyl, and Tirtouga's line. [ Though by reason of people leaving she has two of the first and three of the second. ] And this is not at all a complete collection! Which is sad, because I'd like to study fossil pokemon up close.

So if you have any and could either breed me one or trade me one? I will pay or trade you an egg you'd like! Very specifically I am also looking into getting two Archen! One of those is not for me, but is for Dave, whom also has a sad lack of fossil pokemon that has to be corrected!

I figured it was worth asking, at least! Oh, and before I forget, if you didn't tell me your birthday a few months ago when I asked and we're now friends, you should probably tell me about it now! I don't want to miss someone's birthday on accident. And I think that's pretty much everything? Though on the topic of birthdays, I know of three for this month! And just in case you don't? Equius picked the 9th, Francis Bonnefoy told me his birthday is the 14th, and Misaki's is on the 25th! Be sure to wish them well on those days, okay?

[ She's well aware that text isn't a preferred mode of communication for some people, and this is too important to not get out to the greatest amount of people who knew him possible, but...Aradia's forgoing video for once, so all that's coming through is her voice. She sounds fairly calm, if a bit rushed, but there's a bit less pep and a bit more seriousness, though admittedly only those who are familiar with her may even note that much. ]

Hi. Jake English went home today. [ Just...putting it out there, front and center. Aradia takes another breath before continuing. ]

I'm not sure exactly when, but...well, we've been having the same problems as everyone else. A little bit. It was only the once, but - well, let's just say we were all split up. And I was trying to contact everyone to try to coordinate a reunion, but - I couldn't reach Jake's gear.

I tried a few times, just to be sure, so - I don't think it's a mistake. ...Besides which, both of the Jake Pokemon are with me, and - [ Well. Logic therefore dictates that he's gone. ]

If anyone has any Pokemon from his roster I'd appreciate it if you sounded off. I'm sure they're all going to be well cared for but it would be nice to know where they ended up, although admittedly there are a number of Pokemon to account for.

[ There's a short pause, and then, wryly: ] We had a bit of a problem back then, didn't we? ...Anyway, that's about it. Oh! I did find Kanaya, though. We just ended up on opposite ends of town.

[ Aradia's flipped back into "normal" mode, i.e. being a troll - mostly. She's flickering between each version of herself without any real rhyme or reason, although she normally won't flip in a conversation. Therefore people may come across a) Aradia the fairy time-skipping troll, b) Aradia the ghost, c) Aradia the frog spirit, or d) Aradia the robot. She is also sometimes e) still Routeanized human. Depending on which she is at any given time she may or may not have different speaking quirks and personalities - or a lack thereof.

It's sort of a headache, but she's used to juggling things like this anyway. Feel free to catch any of them at any time in any place because why not.

When she turns on video, she's a fairy time-skipping troll as per usual. ]


This again? I wonder how much we'll remember, and how much we'll forget. Either way, this is what I meant by "troll", to those of you who asked. [ A smile, wide and open. ] If you remember, now you'll know!

This really is my favorite form. I've been...hiccuping? I don't know what you'd call it, but this is the best one!
timelymaid: art by <user name=sooheesprite site=tumblr.com> (+ whatcha dooooooin'?)
Hey! I'm not sure if everyone watches the EV News - I do, and they have the catchiest little intro jingle, don't you think? [ Pausing to hum that. You're welcome. ]

Anyway! Is anyone planning to go to this prom thing? And has anyone else managed to procquire a silver ticket? I have to say that seeing all those pokeballs drop from the sky was sort of fun! I actually can't take credit for catching my silver ticket, though - Panini caught it. I think he was sort of having a field day with things to catch from the sky, actually. I'll have to keep that in mind for the future.

I've never been to a dance before. So I entirely plan to go! Besides, it sounds like it's happening in a new place, which is exciting. Have any of you been to dances before, though? I wouldn't mind hearing about them if you have!

[ When the video comes on it’s pretty clear that Aradia is pointing it at something not her. Mostly because what is on the screen? Is Jake English, freaking out with two baby pokemon - a buneary and a wooper - in his lap while two eggs are clearly in the process of hatching before him. The baby pokemon are being fairly noisy and clearly want attention and possibly to be fed. There’s some quiet laughter from behind the gear, but Aradia’s not making fun of the situation. She’s just. Amused. And excited!! Baby pokemon are totally her thing, okay. ]

They keep hatching! What do I do?! I’m quickly running out of arms to hold them with over here!

[ There’s some more laughter, but Aradia props the gear up nearby so it still has a shot and comes around front to sit down by the eggs. ]

Well, we’re lucky I have two arms, too, right? And I’ve got some food mixed up, too. Don’t worry!! You’re doing great. Look how cute they are!

[ She sounds fairly at ease, and apparently chose a good time to sit down, because it looks like we’re getting a baby bulbasaur into the mix. Hey there, little one! Aradia’s just going to reach over for the bulbasaur, going to clean it off as she hums. Jake sighs as he fights the buneary off from trying to steal his glasses. Those are off-limits to ALL Pokemon. ]

You’re a lifesaver and I don’t know what I’d do without you, Aradia. I didn’t expect four of them to hatch all at once, though!

[ He suddenly gives her a mock suspicious look. ]

Are any of yours hatching today, too?

No, I’ve got a few more days before any hatch. The Pichu eggs should hatch...in three or four days? And that’s the soonest. [ So they’ll have even more baby pokemon in three or four days. Yeah. Speaking of, there is one last egg...] Oh, that’s the Swablu egg, right? [ She’s excited to see the Swablu. She’s never seen one in person before. ]

Ah, yes, that’s certainly--

[ Oh. That’s definitely not a blue Swablu. ]

... [ Jake kind of. Stares at it. Aradia is also sort of staring at it, a thoughtful little frown on her face. She picks up the pokemon, juggling bulbasaur over gently, and the Swablu seems to be healthy, despite the colour... ]

He seems to be fine - I’m not sure why he’s yellow. I’ve never seen much variation in the colours for species so far! [ At all, really. Baby Swablu sorry you’re being manhandled, but at least she’s being gentle about it. And, oh. Maybe she should break out the pokesnacks...with no free hands. Give her a second to settle you in her lap and reach back for the stuff she prepared. Weird colours or no, pokemon need to eat! ]

Ohmygosh I have a Tweety Bird!!

[ No, Jake didn’t hear a word of what Aradia said. He’s too preoccupied with the fact that he’s got what looks like a canary. ]

I thought it was a Swablu? But it’s a Tweety Bird pokebeast? [ People who never watched cartoons as children, even the Troll equivalents: Aradia Megido.

While Jake starts to correct her, the pokegear falls off of the table it was on, cutting off. Whoops.

Red is Aradia, green is Jake! Replies will come from either Aradia or Jake, but probably both; thread-jacking will happen and is fine. Any friends in Violet can alternately hit up Jake's room in person if they know where it is and want in on all this baby pokemon action. ]

video;
[ Someone's certainly happy today. Aradia has absolutely no clue what's going on, but she knows when it's going on to exact degrees and she's a god tier troll again. Life is good! Although she's also apparently doing spontaneous teleportation, at least going places is a lot easier! She has all the time in the world.

May as well ask about whatever is happening, even if it's mostly happy. ]


This isn't normal, right? I've been to several different places without staying for very long, and I stopped taking my map out about five stops ago. I don't think I can check them off as places I've been if I only stay for a handful of minutes at a time, right?

Oh, but I'm a fairy again! Well, a troll. [ If that was not incredibly obvious from the video. Gray skin with a reddish tint when she flushes, curling horns, and yellow whites of the eye... ] I missed flying!

Is everyone else doing okay?

action;
[ Alternately, catch Aradia as she's ported through to different places, although you might have to make do with a quick chat. Hopefully she doesn't catch you in an awkward position. She'll eventually end up at Violet City, where she'll be for most of the event. Happy lazy coincidences! She'll be flitting around town and poking at anything interesting and talking to whoever. Indy the Gastly is going to be out and flying with her for the duration of the event, because she pretty much never puts him in his pokeball. ]
