FUROH BLOG ENTRY #1

Riding the Red Liner

As I write this (I'm not near a computer at the moment), I am staring at the bluest ocean I have ever seen. It's practically black! This boat is so fast; we just passed a school of Sharpedoes! If only there were underwater windows...
I'm out on the deck of the
S.S. Red Liner, taking advantage of this cloudless sky. As some of you may know, the Red Liner is named after the legendary champion from Kanto, Red. He ended his rival's reign in a matter of hours, and the match itself took even less time! Of course, the color does the name justice too; it's like a newly waxed car finish. I wish we held the graduation party on this instead of the gymnasium. No old gym sock smell here!
I should be arriving at Fidona within the hour. Just a basic survey, but it's my first assignment, so I'm still excited grin.gif. I'll post pics later.


"Miss?"

Pan looked up from her journal to see a young waiter, just a bit older than herself. Dressed in what appeared to be a naval-themed uniform, he held out a chocolate milk shake, complete with a thick layer of whipped cream, large chocolate sprinkles and two red straws.

"Ooh, right here," Pan replied, pointing to the small table next to her lounge chair. As he set the drink down, he was being closely watched by the patron in the adjacent chair. Sitting on his own lounge chair, the bulbasaur kept his eyes on the waiter until he left his view. His attention then turned to his trainer, who leaned over to take a sip.

"Come on, Turnip! Try it!" Pan pleaded to the resistant bulbasaur. Turnip seemed to be the complete opposite of his fun-loving trainer: reserved and a bit grumpy. He eventually gave into her pleading look and sucked onto the straw. The rare but slight grin confirmed his pleasure, something that in turn pleased Pan. Together, both finished the shake quickly, leaving nothing but a few bits of sprinkles. Soon after, Pan stood up to get a better look at the boat. Turnip followed; though he would have prefered to take a nap, he also felt he had to watch his trainer, so he stood by her side, still looking around for suspicious activity.

The S.S. Red Liner wasn't nearly as large as the big cruise liners. Indeed, only 50 people were on board, including the crew of 15. What it lacked in size, it made up for in looks and speed. The paint job on the boat was a bright red, resembling that of a fancy car. Pan had to shield her eyes from the sunlight reflecting off the hull. This drew her attention to the symbols near the front of the hull: a white silohette of a flying charizard followed by the name of the boat, also white. Pan quickly drew her camera out of her pocket, aiming for a good shot of the hull. Through her lens, Pan also saw a small speck of land. She looked up; the journey was almost over (or rather, about to begin.) Forgetting about the picture, Pan ran back to the lounge chair (Turnip really wished she would stay in one place), grabbed her journal, and wrote one last thing:

It can be frightening, going to a new land. You don't know what is waiting for you. And yet, that's exactly what makes it so exciting. Who will you meet? What will you find? You just have to have more courage than fear, the courage to step onto the trail and never look back.

"That'll work," Pan said to herself, scratching out the previous final paragraph in her entry. She then put her belongings in her bag and walked towards the front of the boat (Turnip's annoyed grunts following her). With a slight grin on her face, Pan started humming a tune. It was nothing in particular; she just tried to keep a steady beat. She stood there, watching that speck of land called Fidona get bigger and bigger...
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

PKMN Center- Town of Fidona

The PKMN Center wasn't too far from the dock, so Pan wasted no time after arrival heading over to said center; she didn't even get a good look at the rest of town yet. The center was a modest-sized building, complete with a healing station, a lounge area of red couches and blue carpet, and a computer lab. The nurse was already busy with a line of customers; luckily, Pan didn't need healing services just yet. The lounge area had a few people in it, many of whom appeared to have slept there overnight. The computers within the lab were rather old, but they at least were able to get online. It was here that Pan was reading the latest correspondence from her advisor, Prof. Stone:

QUOTE
Pandora,

Glad to here you made to Fidona safe and dry. As for your assignment, my colleagues are telling that there are pokemon unique to Fidona, specifically a large number of bug species. Some photographs would be most appreciated.

In addition, there is a rumor of a giant tree somewhere in the forest area. It can't be seen in the tree line, possibly because it is in a particularly low lying land area. Investigate and report your findings.

Your stipend has been loaded to your debit card, in case you need further supplies.

Happy hunting!
Prof. Stone


Pan was happy to hear that she now had money to spend on supplies. If she didn't need them now, she would definitely need them before heading off to the mainland.

Pan looked behind her, towards the lounge area. On one of the red couches, Turnip was finally taking his nap. Pan logged off the computer and thought about joining him, but there was work to be done. She grabbed a Fidona map from a brochure table and headed for Turnip's couch. Once there, Pan opened the map and laid it on the plush blue carpet, then she too laid on the carpet on her belly, looking for the route to their next destination.

"Rio!" Jii enthusiastically shouted as he expertly hit a boulder with a Quick Attack. The boulder sustained a crack, dust and small pebbles coming out of it. Jii smirked and disappeared in another of his Quick Attacks, hitting the boulder one more time. It crumbled into dust at the force of the impact. Jii gave a triumphant yell, turning to see his trainer walking up to him with a small smile on her face.

"That was great, Jii," Sapphire told the proud Riolu, who pumped his fist into the air. Sapphire's smile widened microscopically, and she returned a high five from her Riolu. She knew that he loved impressing her with his tricks. Her Charmander Aidan who was busily blowing some flames upwards, looked at the exchange with some kind of a jealous expression.

"Char!" Aidan said, crossing his arms on his chest. The flame on his tail burned more ferociously as his eyes were filled with envy. Sapphire and Jii turned to him, each wearing a different reaction. Jii was puzzled, scratching the back of his head, while Sapphire was greatly amused. Aidan almost always treated Jii as a rival, challenging him to a lot of random contests, like Poffin eating contests, etc. Jii, being the immature he is, didn't take the rivalry seriously.

Sapphire sighed deeply, lifting Aidan off his feet, carefully avoiding the fiery tail. The Charmander shifted his gaze away from his trainer, maintaining his envious front. "Stop that, Aidan. I know you're good too," Sapphire reassured him, and a grin stretched from his face. "Isn't that right, Jii?" Sapphire's eyebrows rose as the two of them looked at Jii expectantly.

"Rio! Riolu!" Jii responded cheerily.

Sapphire crouched to let Jii jump on her left shoulder (as he always did so easily), as Aidan climbed up to her right. Not minding the weight of her two friends, Sapphire started to walk towards the PKMN center. Looking around the quiet town, Sapphire appreciated the peacefulness of the town. But however quiet this town is, Sapphire didn't find any good friends here aside from her trusted Pokemon, which would explain why no one ever bothered to speak with her.

The doors of the center slid open to admit the three of them in. She usually stays in here to relax a bit, also to let her Pokemon play with others. Jii leapt agilely off her shoulder as she carefully let Aidan down, who was again eyeing Jii jealously. Sapphire sat down one of the red couches in the Center, noticing a Bulbasaur sleeping soundly beside her. Better let Alexis out to have some fun too, she thought, letting the Bulbasaur sleep in peace. Before her hand could even grip the Pokeball on her belt, the said ball opened, releasing bright white light that immediately revealed a happy Shinx.

"Shinx!" Alexis chided as she rubbed her head on Sapphire's leg. Sapphire scratched the Shinx's side, earning some purrs of content from the electric-type. Alexis turned to stare at the napping Bulbasaur, and a mischievous gleam appeared in her eye. Sapphire realized this quickly, but not quick enough to react.

"Alexis!" Sapphire hissed as Alexis jumped on the couch, nudging the side of the grass-type playfully. "Alexis, don't wake him up!" Sapphire said quietly but annoyed, but the Shinx kept on nudging the Bulbasaur. Jii and Aidan turned to watch as they heard their trainer's voice.

Let's see, if I take the route north, that should lead me more inland...

Tracking the routes with her pen, Pan examines the map for possible locations for this "giant tree". She deduced that the tree must be deep in the forests, not easily spotted off the coast. It would also be more secluded from people, though she had no idea how much of the forest had been explored by the Fidona natives.

Pan's train of thought was interupted when something brushed against her leg. She looked to her side to see a Shinx approaching Turnip, lightly nudging him. It took three nudges before the Bulbasaur started to wearily open his eyes, directly facing the cub. A bit annoyed by the pokemon's lack of courtesy, Turnip emitted a long low growl, telling the Shinx that he was in no mood to play.

"Come on Turnip. No need to be rude; this one just wants to play," Pan replied. Using the couch as leverage, Pan sat up on the carpet and faced Alexis at eye level. She put on a big smile reached her hand out to pet the Shinx. Turnip, annoyed by his trainer's confusion of who was being rude, watched the two in case he had to intervene.

"Isn't that right? You just want to play," she said in a playful voice. Pan had not yet seen that Alexis' trainer was just feet away.

A sigh.

A story that starts with a sigh.

A lone youth out on the streets, rubbing the palm of his hand against his forehead, while looking around in absolute bewilderment. He was a native to both the island and the town, one who'd never ever even set foot in the world outside this town.

But more specifically, he'd never really set much foot outside of his own home, and the four walls that surrounded him. Driven to travel by an avalanche of pressure, Thomas could not help but feel like going back and just not bothering altogether finding out which was the correct way to reach the ferry.

Going home meant he'd have to argue with his mother on why he went back on his word, though, and he was considered himself a man true to his word. ... A wimpy man, but a man nonetheless, even if he wasn't yet old enough to be anything but a boy.

"Can't be helped, can it?" the youth mumbled to himself; years of solitude and reading had made him develop a habit of talking to himself. He always excused it by saying it improved 'cranial activity', though the validity of that claim was sketchy at best.

Decidedly lost, but not so lost that he didn't know what a Pokécenter was, Thomas decided he'd just go there and see if there was a map around. Surely he wasn't that hopeless yet that he couldn't read a map.
... or maybe ask someone for directions.

There was just one small problem. Thomas was not the sort to approach random strangers and ask them for directions to a place that, quite likely, was common knowledge. Perhaps he shouldn't ask. What if others'd laugh at him? What if they'd make fun of him? Perhaps his ignorance could be considered offensive, and he might offend someone.

Thomas... sighed once again, and lightly tapped his forehead with his knuckle. Another gesture that, supposedly, made him think better, although it achieved no such effect. He peered idly around the room, and saw nothing of real interest.

Wait. A map! Heavens be saved! Resolutely, Thomas took a step towards the map. Doubly resolutely, he remained standing just one step from the entrance, pondering whether it would be morally acceptable to check the map. He wasn't sure whose map it was, but it might belong to the girl near to it. He wasn't sure. Ought he ask her?

Decisions, decisions.

Alexis purred in content as the girl petted her head. She had always loved that gesture. Sapphire assumed that the girl was the Bulbasaur's trainer, and she heaved a sigh; it was not in her nature to talk to strangers, but she had to apologize for Alexis's behavior towards the Bulbasaur. Standing as quietly as possible, she made her way to the girl, Jii and Aidan following behind her, both wearing curious faces.

"I'm sorry if Alexis woke up your Bulbasaur, miss," she said timidly. "It won't happen again." Or at least, Sapphire hoped it wouldn't happen again. She hated talking to people, let alone strangers.

"Riolu, ri," Jii agreed merrily. Alexis turned to face her trainer, and grinned as she jumped to Sapphire's welcoming arms. Sapphire scratched Alexis's chin. The Shinx meowed contentedly, causing Sapphire to smile.

As she waited for the trainer to accept her apology, Sapphire studied the map that was laid out on the carpet. The girl must be a traveler, she assumed. But that wasn't her business, was it?

"Miss? What do I look like, an old lady?" Pan stood up to meet the trainer. She brushed off the carpet fluff off her shirt with her left hand, and reached out with her right hand to shake Sapphire's hand.

"The name's Pandora, Pan for short. And no need to apologize; Turnip sleeps too much anyways." Pan was glad to meet a new person, especially in such a foreign land. She wondered if Sapphire was a resident, one that might be able to help her get around Fidona.

Turnip wasn't listening, for his attention now focused on the other trainer near the entrance. He was just standing there doing odd movements like tapping his head with his knuckle and appearing indecisive in overall behaivor. This trainer appeared (to Turnip) to be staring at Pan, and the bulbasaur did not like that at all. He leaped from the couch and onto the floor, determined to scare off the suspicious character. Turnip stood in front of both the map and Pan, who's back was to Thomas and thus unaware of what the Bulbasaur had seen. He emitted a low warning growl to Thomas.

So caught up in his musings was he that Thomas did not immediately realise that there was a Bulbasaur growling at him. Of course, when he finally did realise it, it did not occur to him that he was in a problem, for he thought the Bulbasaur's growl was not directed at him.

Not at all. He gandered around at anything else that might be nearby, and only then did he realise that it must've been at him for, indeed, there were none closer to the Bulbasaur than he himself was, and it was a right nasty thing for him, as he was unsure how to react.

He did the only thing that came to mind.

"Ah, s-sorry!" And, with two steps back, bumped into another man. Another apology followed suit, and thankfully the man did not at all mind, but Thomas was slightly unnerved by the growling nonetheless.

There you had it! Pokémon didn't like him. Probably no Bulbasaur'd like him. Maybe he did something bad to them once? Maybe he smelled bad. Or maybe his clothes were bad for Bulbasaur. Was it the scarf? Thomas tugged at his scarf, then untied it and offered it to the Bulbasaur apologetically.

The way he did it was as follows.

First, he crouched down, and held the scarf to the Pokémon. Then, he inched closer. And a little closer. ... And then a little farther away.

"Uh-uhm... what's the problem? It's... the scarf, isn't it? Isn't it?" he asked meekly.

Sapphire managed a low chuckle. "You can call me Saph, I guess," she told Pan quietly. "Nice to meet you."

Alexis jumped out of Sapphire's arms and went to join Turnip, who was growling at a boy who was offering a scarf. Sapphire sighed. Alexis had too much enthusiasm for her own good. Jii and Aidan went towards the map spread out on the floor, occasionally poking some locations on the paper, arguing about them all the while.

"You're a traveler, I assume?" Sapphire asked, making an effort to start a conversation. She wasn't used to talking to other people, hence the shyness in her tone. She hoped that Pan wouldn't mind her awkwardness.

"Yep, Kanto born and raised," Pan said with enthusiasm in her voice, "I lived near Celadon City, if you know where that is." She loved her hometown, and could probably go on and on describing why she loves it so. However, Pan also detected the shyness of Saph's voice, and didn't want to overwhelm the girl with all the chatter. Instead, Pan went on about why she was a traveler.

"And now, I'm taking an internship with the Petropolis Museum, searching for 'sites of interest untouched by humanity.' In other words, I get paid to find cool places no one's ever seen," Pan said with a smile on her face. If it wasn't her hometown, her other favorite topic was talking about what she did for a living. She didn't want to hog the spotlight, and she was curious as to who she was talking to, ao Pan changed the subject. She hoped to get Saph out of her shell.

"So that's what brings me to Fidona. What are you up to?"

Meanwhile, Turnip looked at Thomas in utter bewilderment as he waved the scarf around. He turned his head to the side, trying to see if looking at a certain angle would make sense of the situation. It did no such thing. In the end, Turnip decided Thomas was not a threat after all. The bulbasaur turned around, noticing the riolu and charmander arguing about the map. He stood by and watched for the mild entertainment factor.

Sapphire listened closely to Pan's short history, nodding at some certain points. Wondering wherever the heck Celadon City is, she figured Pan was overall nice, but she still didn't trust her fully. "I'm just wandering around here, I guess. Training my Pokemon, that kind of stuff. What is in Fidona that interests you?" she asked. She was uncomfortable talking about herself.

"Char!" Aidan yelled, startling Saph for a bit. Turning to her other two Pokemon, Sapphire's eyes narrowed as she saw Aidan's claws almost ripping part of the map.

"Aidan! Jii!" she scolded, slightly embarrassed at the fact that she was scolding her Pokemon in front of Pan. "Get off that map before you shred it to pieces!" Aidan and Jii slumped and slightly frightened, stepped away from the map. "Sorry, guys, but that map's not ours," Sapphire quickly apologized before turning back to Pan. "Sorry about that."

"Well, the professor wants pictures of what kind of pokemon live around here. Also, he wants me to look for this giant tree somewhere in the forest. Not exactly an epic adventure, but it's a start." Pan said this in a matter-of-fact tone: she wasn't super-excited, but every adventure must begin somewhere.

"Hey, do you live around here? Maybe you can help me figure out these routes." Pan turned to the map to find Jii and Aidan on the map. She watched as Saph scolded her pokemon, though Pan didn't think the damage was that bad.

"No need to apologize. I'll likely do more damage to it myself," Pan said with a slight giggle. As she was saying this, she grabbed the map by its sides and set it on a nearby table. The entire map fit perfectly, as if the wood table was made specifically for looking at the Fidona map. Pan kneeled next to the table, waving her hand to Saph to invite her closer. Turnip joined in, his front "paws" on the table. Pan traced the route named "Woodcutters' Road," a route that led straight to the forest border, but didn't go into the forest itself. She waited for Saph to join her before going further.

"I don't bite," Pan said with a reassuring smile. The bulbasaur gave a loud snort in response.
"You shush," Pan playfully replied.

Sapphire studied the map closely. Some of the routes were familiar to her, but some, she hadn't explored before. "I don't think I ever walked that road before," she said seriously, indicating the path towards the forest. "But I think I know where it is."

Alexis went off to play with Aidan as Jii jumped on Saph's shoulder to get a closer look. He tilted his head to the side in confusion before looking at her for answers. "It's Fidona, Jii," she explained. Jii nodded once as she sighed. She slightly wondered what Jii and Aidan were arguing about a moment ago, but went back to examining the map.

"I could try to take you there, but I won't guarantee it. I could also try help you find that tree you're talking about," she added the last part reluctantly. She wouldn't mind an adventure, but she might disturb Pan's research. But this adventure might make her Pokemon stronger, she thought, especially in that forest. She waited nervously for Pan's answer.

"Really? I would love having another person around," Pan replied, enthusiastic about Saph's involvement. "It's a very good idea to have another pair of eyes in my line of work. Plus, I could use more company." Pan was not only happy about this turn of events, but also somewhat relieved. She thought she'd be the only human in the vast wilderness. Sure, having Turnip and her baltoy Pivot were around, but conversation wasn't their strong point.

Pan stood up and started folding the map neatly according to the creases. She put the map in her back pocket. Turnip walked over to stand by her as Pan adorned her bag like a backpack.

"Maybe on our way, you can show me around town. You know, all the hot spots," Pan jokingly asked. She didn't know a whole lot about Fidona, but she had heard of its small town status. Then again, perhaps Saph knew something Pan did not.
"What do you say, partner?" Pan reached her hand out to Saph, as if to ensure mutual agreement between them.

"Uh, ok," Sapphire said quietly as she accepted the warm handshake. She managed a small friendly smile, hoping for the best. Jii grinned widely and walked towards Turnip, his paw held up. Apparently his friendliness was kicking in again. Aidan, however, remained indifferent.

Saph began to walk towards the doors of the Center, calling for Alexis on the way. The Shinx jumped into her welcoming arms as Aidan followed closely behind her. Being deep in her thoughts, she hadn't realized where she was going and bumped into a boy who held a scarf.

"Sorry, my bad," she said apologetically to the guy.

Turnip nodded to Jii, then extended a vine out of his side and into the Riolu's hand. He never shook hands with another pokemon before, so his moves were slow and deliberate. After shaking, the Bulbasaur caught up with Pan as they headed towards the door. While Saph was busy apologizing to Thomas (Turnip again watched the boy for more peculiar behavior), Pan looked out the window of the Pokemon Center, her first real look at the town of Fidona.

There weren't many people out, even though it was just after lunch break. Pan noticed that the majority of the buildings she saw were basic necessities: a grocery store, a clinic, and a hardware store were clearly visible from her position. These buildings also looked rather...historic; each had old brick walls, rusted metal signs, and white patios with chipped paint in several places. Indeed, they looked like places Pan's grandparents would have shopped at when they were her age. The overall look appeared charming to Pan, as if going back to a simpler time.

"Nice place to grow up in," Pan said, talking to herself.

Sapphire shrugged as the boy didn't seem to answer her apology. Putting the matter at the back of her head, she went over to Pan, hearing what she had said. She sighed, and walked towards the door. It wouldn't be a very nice place if you know what I'd been through, she thought sadly. Jii came to her side, noticing his trainer's sad aura. Even if he was just a Riolu, Jii had the power to sense the aura of some people, but he wasn't very good at it.

"Rio?" Jii asked her thoughtfully, tugging at the end of her pants. The Riolu leapt on her shoulder with ease.

"I'm fine, Jii. No worries," Sapphire lied, trying to reassure her Pokemon. Jii nodded in understanding.

Saph turned to Pan. "Fidona's really a peaceful town. A lot of grass, trees and flowers, but not much buildings, sadly," she explained to the traveler. "The forest you're talking about is just down the road. It won't take much time to go there."

Being human, Pan did not notice Saph's sadness, though she did see a close bond betwen her and the Riolu. As she followed Saph's lead, Pan reached out to scratch Jii's chin. She often couldn't help herself; she had to touch a friendly pokemon. This annoyed Turnip quite a bit; he knew it never was a good idea to touch all manner of creatures. Indeed, he half-hoped she would get bitten, just so he could say he told her so (or rather, think it).

As she entertained Jii, Pan commented on Saph's view of Fidona, "Well, when you come from a big city, peace is a good thing." Though she lived in the suburbs, she was never far from the busy life of Celadon City. It was a welcome change to experience life without the noise of a bustling city in the background.

"Rio..." Jii mumbled satisfiedly as Pan scratched his chin. He wasn't the kind of Pokemon to attack other people who were just trying to be friends with him.

The doors of the Pokemon Center opened. Saph motioned for Pan to follow her as she walked out of the building, Aidan coming to rest on her other shoulder. Alexis willingly returned to her Pokeball to give her trainer's arms some freedom. Saph began walking down the road. Fidona wasn't actually full of wondrous sights, if you aren't a flower person. Plants and trees lined the sides of the road, varieties of flowers giving colors to the place.

"If memory serves me correctly," Sapphire began, "the route that leads to the forest... there," she pointed to a stone path that was leading to a darkish dot in the distance. "If you're ready we can start trekking, I guess. Or you could stock up some supplies first," she pointed to a not-so-small wooden hut nearby.

Pan stopped scratching Jii so she could observe her surroundings. She glanced at flower fields containing every color of the rainbow and two kids playing with a tire swing attached to one of the many trees. She was reminded of her own childhood experiences: swinging on her own tire swing, with Turnip pushing her (and vice-versa).

Her nostalgia trip was interrupted by Saph's question on where to go next. Though she wanted to get this adventure started, it would be foolhardy to go into an unknown area without supplies. Indeed, all she really had were pokeballs.

"We better gather some supplies first. I plan on eating at some point," Pan replied, with her bulbasaur nodding in agreement. She moved to Saph's side, and headed for the wooden hut.

Saph cautiously entered the hut. Even if she kinda knew what was in it, it wouldn't hurt to be careful at least. It wasn't a PokeMart or something of the like. It was her aunt's hut.

"Aunt Diane?" she asked no one in particular. Only the wooden floor creaked in response as she stepped in. She turned to Pan. "Come in. I'll just tell my aunt later about this. She won't mind," she assured her and walked inside the hut. There was a sack that was half-full leaning on the wall, filled with Pokemon food. Saph turned her attention to a average-sized pot on the table at the other corner and sniffed the scent that was coming out of it. She managed a little smile. It was her favorite: corn soup.

"You...uh...want some?" Sapphire asked reluctantly to Pan as she went to get two bowls from the stack nearby. Jii went towards the sack of Pokemon food along with Aidan and Alexis, who had just gone out her ball, pushing the sack down. Pokemon food went gushing out, and Jii made a sound like 'Oops'. Saph, realizing what happened, hurried to put the sack back, but poured some into a sizable bowl for the Pokemon she and Pan had. She then went back to the corn soup and poured herself some.

"There are some trainer stuff my aunt has in the back. Maybe some potions, pokeballs, etcetera etcetera," she explained as she sipped.
