[ 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!

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!

whens your birthday?
im curious
and how do you normally celebrate it at your home?

where im originally from we dont use years or months or any of these things as a time term
a sweep isnt even equivalent to a year
and you have one wriggling day a sweep
although theres not much you do on them compared to human parties which i think are more fun
i cant even begin to figure out how you would equate a wriggling day to a yearly thing anyway
so i just did what jake suggested and picked something else for fun

speaking of!
ive got a list now and since i need to get it to several people this seems appropriate
sans terezi nepeta equius gamzee the birthday calendar is as follows:
february 14 eridan ampora february 22 sollux captor march 25 aradia megido
april 13 john egbert and jane crocker august 31 kanaya maryam
september 21 or 22 karkat vantas because whichever is the equinox!
and then december 1 is jake english and jade harley
december 3 is strider day
and december 4 is lalonde day

so that crosses off everyone i know from home but i do not have the days of everyone i know here
thus this very important question!
if you dont have one we can pick one because this is exciting!


[ as always, if you respond in something else, Aradia will match you. ]

[ That’s right, it’s time for another joint post! ...Ish. Aradia is clearly in the frame - she apparently has a pokemon filming with the gear, although which one isn’t immediately apparent - surrounded by a plethora of neatly sorted eggs. Jake is only semi-clearly in the frame, since he is apparently lying down surrounded by some eggs slightly off to the side. He is flanked by two Wigglytuff - one male, one female. The female is prodding him in the face while the male sort of just stares.

Aradia is apparently ignoring the fact that Jake fainted dead away for the time being, because there is Business to attend to and anyway he’ll be fine man. Just ignore him! Unless you, you know, can’t. ]


Hi! This is Aradia, again, and - [ ...Oh, wait, right. She veers away from introducing Jake, since he’s not exactly in a useful state right now. The Wigglytuff are now clearly debating something in the background, the female having given up her poking attempts for lost. ] - as it happens, Jake and I have rather a lot of eggs available right now! I’ll be attaching a text document for download at the end of this with the species spread and basic price points, but if you want something and can’t afford it, let us - sorry, let me know and we can absolutely work something out!

I’ve also sort of got some idea of the things they ought to be capable of, but this is our first batch, so...live and learn! Hopefully I’ll learn a lot from this. Oh, and if you’d like to place an order, just be sure to give your location, too! That’s always really -

[ Her brief explanation is interrupted by an incredibly loud slapping sound as in the background both Wigglytuff execute Wake-Up Slap on Jake.

Oh dear. ]
- Tourmaline, Kunzite! [ Aaaand Aradia’s going to check on this after giving a “kill” gesture to whatever happens to be behind the camera. HONESTLY, YOU TWO.

Attached is the aforementioned EGG LIST, which has 139 eggs available. There are still lots left, and as Aradia said - price is negotiable. Now she has to go find some ice for Jake. :| ]

[ Aradia's sitting at a table with a sizeable stack of books and her binder opened to red-inked notes that can't be read clearly on the screen. She's got the pokegear propped up against something, and she smiles absently, clearly ordering her thoughts. ]

Hello! This is Aradia. I've been doing some reading - well, I suppose it's rather a lot of reading? - about the legends of this place. Jade, thank you again for that book! I actually read a reference to it there, and then it took me a little while to locate other mentions of the topic - it's been nearly two weeks? - because I suppose I'm really in the wrong region for this, but -

Hm. I'm rambling. Anyway! Here's a story that some of you might find interesting.

A long time ago, there was a pokémon known as Regigigas. It seems to be part of a creation myth, like a few others - the task Regigigas completed was pulling the continents into place. When it had completed that task, it created three golems in its image: one from an icy mountain, one from rocks, and from one magma. Regice, Regirock, and Registeel. For a time they were worshiped by the people of the land, but this would not last. They were so powerful that the people grew afraid, and took action.

Using magic they sealed away the master of the golems, Regigigas. The three golems it had created were spirited away to a new land, for if they were to come together Regigigas could rise again, and the people of that land feared that would mean endless destruction. The golems were all sealed away, their locations lost or forgotten.

[ Aradia falls silent for a minute or two, making a note in her binder, before looking back up. ] I'll admit it isn't exactly overflowing with details, but I thought I'd share anyway. The legend itself is apparently native to a place called Hoenn. "We built this" - that was in the translations they released. I wonder what it refers to in specific? The placement of the continents? This world's civilization? I really want to go to Blackthorn sometime soon to see for myself! Oh, and the rest, if you weren't following the news, I guess: "Man ends, pokémon ends, everything ends. New worlds inherit new dreams." We've certainly got worlds aplenty represented here, anyway.

This place does have something of a knack for cryptic messages, though. "Our words shall remain here for the ages. Thus we shall erect a pokémon statue outside. They possess great insight and refuse the outside world. We humans must learn to walk in harmony with them. We depart for their sakes."

I wonder how many more of these little messages are hidden around the realm. I suppose we'll just have to find out! At least reading about this makes it easier to know what to keep an eye out for when we're exploring! Although reading about all of this also makes my "to see" list absurdly long, so maybe I ought to stop until I've caught up with that.
