Pokemon: SoulSilver Drabbles 4036. EspionageMost people would have thought to call the police when a highly dangerous criminal organization decided to hijack an influential radio tower in the region's most populated city. Most people wouldn't have thought to infiltrate the Radio Tower and take the aforementioned criminal organization by storm. But then, Lyra supposed, she wasn't "most people," and besides, she had always loved playing make-believe and dressing up."You're a new recruit?" The Rocket grunt said skeptically, watching her approach. Dean was walking alongside her, as Lyra had figured that a dark-type would better blend, and he bared his fangs at the Rocket grunt."You bet," Lyra said, raising her chin in a subconscious imitation of Will. "I was told to come down here for my uniform since they ran out of them upstairs. You do have one, right?" Before giving the grunt a chance to answer, Lyra continued. "Because if you don't, Executive Ariana said that she'd speak to you personally.
PKMN: SoulSilver Drabbles 11091. Rainbow WingPewter City was, above all else, a simplistic city.Nothing was overdone in Pewter. Even the museum was very basic and to the point, pragmatic in both its construction and exhibits. Ethan decided that he liked that about Pewter. Whereas most cities would be bustling with crowds and bursting with activity, Pewter City was quiet and calm, and as he walked through the streets at night, Mari was allowed to run ahead of him without fear of treading on anyone's feet or tripping anyone up. Well, not that she worried about that kind of stuff ordinarily anyway, but he did, and it was nice to not have to worry for once. The streets of Pewter were mostly empty at night, and it was for this reason that Ethan was surprised to hear someone call out to him, perched up on a small ledge above him."Psst. Boy. Come over here.""Me?" Ethan turned to see an old man looking down at him, nodding at Ethan's question. Mari bounced back to Ethan as he walked over, looking up at
Pokemon: SoulSilver Drabbles 8066. Fan ClubIt was really just pure chance that Lyra wandered into the Vermillion City Pokèmon Fan Club, but she wasn't expecting what she found.At first, everyone seemed friendly enough. Mostly people weren't talking to each other, but were instead cooing over their own Pokèmon. That was fine; Lyra always paid special attention to her Pokèmon, too, so she couldn't fault these people for loving their own. But when a woman nearby looked at Pantalaimon and gave a derisive snort, Lyra frowned, feeling slightly defensive."What?""Nothing," the woman replied, but when Lyra continued to frown at her, said, "Well, it's just . . . do you really train that weasel?"Lyra's frown turned into a scowl, and Pantalaimon made an insulted noise. "He's not a weasel, he's a Furret," Lyra snapped. "And yes, I train him. He's my best friend.""Hmph." The woman smirked, turning to stroke her Wigglytuff's ears. "Whatever it is, it's a nasty little thing, isn't i
PKMN: SoulSilver Drabbles 10086. Oh"I still feel like you cheated somehow," Lyra complained, sticking her tongue out at Ethan as they walked through Fuchsia City. Ethan grinned."Hey, I won fair and square. It's not my fault you can't ride as fast as I can." Mari chirped her agreement at Ethan's feet, and Pantalaimon pulled a face at her."Cheater, cheater, pumpkin eater," Lyra shot back, and Ethan crossed his arms."Say what you want, but you still owe me a vanilla milkshake later. I also want to see a movie.""Fine." Lyra crossed her arms in an imitation of Ethan, raising her chin defiantly. "But I bet that you drink that milkshake too fast and end up with a brain freeze.""Pft. Bet whatever you want, it won't happen.""Will so.""Will not.""Will so.""Will not.""Will--""Ethan!"Ethan and Lyra both turned, watching as an unfamiliar man ran up to the pair of them, waving enthusiastically. Lyra glanced at Ethan, but saw that he looked just as puzzled as she felt, and looked back to see th
Pokemon SoulSilver Drabbles 6056. First Up: Will (No, Not That One -- The Other One. The Annoying One)Initially, Lyra was nervous when she walked toward the door leading into the room that housed the first member of the Elite Four. She knew absolutely nothing about them, after all, save for what the guard in front of the door said before he passed. Something about the way he grinned when he said that they were incredibly tough and that she couldn't exit once she entered set her on edge, and though Dean walked with cool confidence beside her, Lyra still couldn't help but feel as if each and every one of her nerves had been jolted by an extremely rude Thundershock.But when she entered the first room and found herself faced with strange, three-dimensional floating blocks that seemed to be made out of nothing but light and a strangely costumed man staring at her, she felt most of her nerves melt away into pure bemusement."Welcome to the Elite Four!" the man called out as he approached, h
Pokemon: SoulSilver Drabbles 3026. Not Really All That IntimidatingWhen Lyra heard that the Gym Leader of Cianwood City was a master of fighting Pokèmon, she'd been expecting someone . . . intimidating. A mysterious master of martial arts who could snap her neck with a simple look, maybe, or at least someone toned and well-built. Not . . . Not the slightly overweight man who spent his time sitting beneath a makeshift waterfall. The water pressure doesn't even look that impressive, she thought. And the lever to turn it off probably wouldn't be so rusty if he ever did.But Lyra voiced none of these thoughts when she finally faced him and his ire at her interruption of his "training," save to say that such training had nothing to do with Pokèmon. It wasn't that Lyra was afraid of Chuck -- Chuck was a Gym Leader, and Gym Leaders fought in Pokèmon battles, not physical ones -- but more that it was getting to be late, and she had to meet Will at the coast at eight o' clock.All
