    Beasts and Beauties [Sun & Moon]

    Addendum Two: No Man Is An Island A Meowth's claws dug into Nanu's chest. Since he was currently dozing, this pain barely registered at first, but the sensation of sharp needles piercing the fabric of his shirt and then his skin started to shake him from dreamless sleep. He snorted. Then he...

    Addendum One: The Evil That Men Do Twelve years ago in early June, the weather on Mele'mele Island had already become uncomfortably warm, but it had not stopped Guzma from walking home and sweating in his favorite hoodie over his school uniform. The island was small enough that on any given...

    I plan to post the two addenda's tomorrow. Meanwhile, thanks to those who nominated and voted for this story in the 2018 contest. It appears this story won a category or two (and tied for another). I'm sorry that I've been dragging my feet so much updating this thread throughout this process; I...

    Epilogue: Postcards All stories must end. But when a story ends, lives go on. Winds blow in all directions; like dandelion seeds, where people were once were bound by one kernel, now, they scattered. And for each one, different fates had to be faced. Different challenges, and fears, and...

    Beasts and Beauties [Sun & Moon]

    (cont. from previous post) - Lusamine could not step any closer. It had taken only a word to break the lock imposed on Guzma's access to the beasts, but with so much to be done, she had been caught up discussing other matters with employees in the testing labs. She had to give assurances that...

    Chapter 35: Aloha 'Oe Mohn, more than anything, loved fireworks. If he were given the authority, ability, or resources to do so, he would have set them off every night and sat on a hill just to watch them streak the sky and thunder their brilliance over the world. He loved the color, the...

    Chapter 34: En Rose Lusamine could not hide forever. Or rather, she could hide forever, but it would not be a feasible plan. Not if she intended to retaliate appropriately against the indignity she suffered. She at first thought she would make Guzma rue the day he thought he could manipulate...

    Of course it didn't work out that way. He approached from the rim of the crowd, but suddenly the bodies parted to allow space for a fainted, rotund Raticate to roll into view, stopping thankfully just before it might have tumbled overboard. It landed close to Guzma's feet, however, which led...

    Chapter 33: Warmonger Under the force of the punishing storm the previous night, the swimming pool's contents had been contaminated not only with rain, but with the crashing waves of ocean water spilling over the edge of the ship. The pool stood filled with a murky, brackish fluid suspended...

    (cont. from previous post) All children, Lusamine knew, crave the same thing. No matter the pretensions of rebellion they put on, they want direction. So Team Skull did not worry her. They might be rambunctious, wild, and destructive, but after two days stuck on a ship, their aimlessness was...

    Hi! ... I gave up! Then I forgot about the thread! Then other stuff happened and @Chibi Pika told me to finish posting SO-- There's only three more chapters after this, so I'll wrap this up quick. -- Chapter 32: Ephemeron Guzma was furious. Lillie hardly knew what to make of Guzma's...

    Chapter 31: A Glass Darkly The trip back to Mele'mele had changed Guzma. This, Lusamine understood. Before then, he had been not much more than an irritating child who whined and threw tantrums, and whom she could corral with a stern word and tug on the ear. But somehow―whether by some...

    (cont. from previous post) Gladion stood still for a few moments but mostly took Plumeria's tantrum in stride. He left the ruined plate on the floor and brought her the one in his other hand. He made no comment when he reached her table. He just put the plate down and put his hand to his chin...

    Chapter 30: Monsters Far, far away―farther than anyone on the ship could see―and behind the outline of mountains on Ula'ula Island, a stormcloud gathered at the rim of the seemingly endless sky. Across the rest of the blue dome overhead, no other clouds blemished the view, as they had been...

    So as a quick note, I have actually finished with the writing process of this story! Which means I'll try to post more aggressively (it has a total of 36 chapters) to get people caught up. I have to assume there are a lot of lurkers on this thread because the view count keeps ticking upward, so...

    Well, I'm not sure how worth it continuing to post will be, but it's not that much effort, sooo, here we go: Chapter 28: Memory_Disc_5 - Earth By stroke of incalculable luck, Lusamine had found the nest. It took a few hours of wandering the tunnels of this cave, following the paths of...

    Chapter 27: Memory_Disc_4 - Water Lillie had left the window open again. Lusamine knew this because when she awoke that morning, she lifted her head and caught sight of a Wingull perched atop the bed, pecking at suspect lumps under the covers in a search for food. She stifled a cry of surprise...

    Chapter 26: Memory_Disc_3 - Air "Why do I have to go, anyway? Why can't I stay here?" Lusamine shut the suitcase atop the bed, allowing the latch's clunk to disguise the sound of her sigh. She thought the whining would cease by the time the shuttle arrived, when excitement for the trip...

    Chapter 25: Memory_Disc_2: Ice Lusamine jerked awake. Her back ached, and no wonder: she had fallen asleep on the chairs in the hospital hall, with no more than a bundled-up coat to rest her head. Speaking of: her head was pounding. The scorchingly bright fluorescent lights above her didn't...

    Chapter 24: Ego Sum Nihil - Memory_Disc_1 Everyone who knew the LeBlanc family knew that the closer together Lucienne and Nikolai stood, the further the two siblings regressed in age. It worked as precisely and consistently as natural law―like the force of gravity. So by the time...
