    Threadmarks: Chapter 17: Shinobi

    Shinobi Artemis banked softly after Harding's fearow. We circled over the small clearing in the trees, easily spotting the abandoned bedrolls and scattered equipment. I tapped my comm unit. "That clearing is too small for me to land at." I glanced around, looking for a suitable place to land...

    Threadmarks: Chapter 16: Ambush

    Ambush It looked like Pride. His eyes, his horn, the same spikes running down the nidoking's flanks. Except the pokemon's head had been nearly torn from its body. A deep gash was rent into the king's armoured side, a bloody mess peeking out from under the pokemon. I shied back, putting my hand...

    Threadmarks: Chapter 15: Grief

    Grief "Hold," crackled the voice. "Wait for them to cross the ridge." I gripped the scope tighter, keeping the sights trained on the crest of the ridge opposite me. There was a deep gorge dividing the two ridges, starting further up the mountain where the rock formation split. I could see...

    Reunion "So, let me get this straight." I stood up, pacing the end of my room. Luna looked up at me, unconcerned by my panicked tone. "You want me to walk in, demand to speak to the crazy bitch that's already kicked my ass, demand my pokemon back, and pray that I don't get executed for my...

    Rainbow Good luck, Marcus! Whole bar is rooting for you! Wish I could be there! I looked up from my gear, a confident smile etched on my face. I had this. I could win this battle. I had people behind me, people I didn't even know who knew my name. The doors cracked open and the sweet smell...

    Threadmarks: Chapter 11: Expansion

    Expansion I scowled at the shelves of merchandise, my eyes falling on the item I was here to buy. It had taken me three floors of useless guided shopping to reach this point. I may have been in a good mood at one point, but shopping never was my thing. Especially when one of my arms was...

    Roads I woke with the morning call, scrambling out of bed to make it down to reception in time for checkout. I made it with four minutes to spare, my balls slotted into place on my belt and my pack hastily crammed back together. I wasn't pretty, but I was awake. I'd be on the road anyways, so...

    Thunder My platform rose into the air, Surge mirroring me across the arena. There was no crowd, no onlookers save for a pair of gym trainers that Surge had asked to spectate. The cameras were rolling, broadcasting live to whatever league network decided to pick up an early match. There was no...

    Threadmarks: Chapter 8: Mourning

    Mourning A pair of rangers arrived less than ten minutes later. They put out the fire, a golduck and a poliwhirl dousing the blaze before it could spark into a forest wide inferno. They'd seen the smoke on patrol, seen the chopper flying west in a hurry. One of them had given chase on the back...

    Threadmarks: Chapter 7: Fault

    Fault I needed another pokemon. As if the mysterious woman walking off with Curie wasn't enough, the Vermillion gym wouldn't even schedule my challenge without a third team member. Surge's intermediate challenges were different than most gyms. He was a warrior, a born and bred soldier that...

    Vermillion I stood at the seawall, a pair of trainers flanking me on each side. I'd arrived at the rally point too late to catch a glimpse of Surge and was folded into the waiting defenses by one of the few Indigo Rangers on site. He had me change the dial on my pokegear radio to the local...

    Goodbye Gemma met me after the battle, shepherding me through an interview with the waiting Indigo News 4 reporter. I stumbled through her questions, blinking like an idiot with that absurdly bright light in my eyes. She thanked me for my time and pressed a piece of paper into my hand that...

    Threadmarks: Chapter 4: Cascade

    Cascade I stared intently at the catalogue, reading the prices with dismay. Gemma had suggested that we take a look at the trainer's market for a technical machine. I had no clue how they worked, but they could impart certain techniques into the minds of pokemon. Luna's list teased me with...

    Threadmarks: Chapter 3: Capture

    Capture It turned out that by ornery, Gemma meant that Lilith got real fighty at night. More times than I could count, the fearow would throw us into a steep dive as she chased off some perceived threat. Gemma hooted and hollered in joy while I held on for dear life. When we finally touched...

    Wilderness It was dusk when we finally made camp. I'd walked as far eastwards from Pewter as I could in a day and still barely covered a quarter of the distance to Mount Moon. If I'd had the money to pay for a teleport back to Cerulean, I would have. Unfortunately, what little prize money I...

    TEEN: Pokemon: Journey (Rated T for violence)

    Personally, I’ve always disliked the opening slog of most journeyfics. I didn’t really have any interest in spending 8-10 chapters before I’d even touched a gym battle. You’ll find that the pacing of this fic is fairly fast compared to most others. We do have a few arc-ending gym battles, but...

    Threadmarks: Chapter 1: Boulder

    Boulder The hallway was dank and dark. It smelled like sweat and blood, crude reminders of what it would take to actually accomplish my goal. There was no noise of the crowd, no searing lights for the cameras, just an old loudspeaker that crackled and fizzed as it spat out its call...
