"... No," Azelf eventually answered. Cynthia saw that had been looking at Prince, and her own eyes went to the small fairy. "I would not mind. Lead the way, ma'am." She nodded to acknowledge his statement, but her eyes lingered on Prince in concern. Unfortunately, Guinevere had already started, and they had to get ready to move.

She heard Gold murmur, "Hey, you ok, buddy? Don't worry, I'll keep you safe and warm." She had to trust that Gold would take care of Prince until they reached the top of the stairway. Afterwards, she would stop and check on the fairy herself.

The climb to the top of the staircase was not as treacherous as she feared thanks to the combined efforts of Guinevere and the fire types. The worn down stone and uneven steps made her nearly lose traction once or twice, but she managed to catch herself before something happened. Guinevere reached the top before the rest, and the large dragon kept an eye on the stone building they were going to be entering. Flanking the entrance were two sets of dilapidated stone pillars similar to the one near the bottom of the stairs. The building was made of a similar matieral that distinguished it from the stone of the moutain. Once they had reached the top. Cynthia paused and ensured the rest of the group was there. She pointedly looked over at Gold and Prince, and asked, "Prince, are you okay?"

Alph Ruins - Cabin | Morning | 49


"Hey, you ok, buddy?"

The slowly growing tempus of fear that fuzzed and softened the edges of reality suddenly... well... it doesn't quite calm, but the world suddenly comes into much sharper focus as the words and the cheerful voice draw him back in, the little fairy looking up at the young man with wide, dazed eyes.  "Don't worry, I'll keep you safe and warm."

He will.  Somehow there's not even a question in his mind about that.  Something about this human leaks indomitable strength even in his strange silliness, and the lighthearted soul he has starts to push back against the storm in his chest.

But then suddenly there's more than just the energetic cheer that spouts from Gold in endless waves.  Something... softer?

He sits up as if that will help the emotions of whoever else flow into him better.

Peace.  Calmness.  Something warm and happy.  Nostalgic, that's the word!  Soothing.  Like a blanket and soup.  Doesn't seem to b coming from Lexa, definitely not Gold.  Not Silver either...

Anubis?

Close your eyes.  Focus on it.  It's almost certainly Anubis but he doesn't have time to contemplate that now.  Time to wrap himself up in that blanket and savor it.  The fairy leans back into Gold and soaks in the feeling, doing his best to block out Gold's emotions-- they clash.  Gold is bright and sunny.  Like... Summertime beaches and volleyball and the games of tag they used to play as children.  This is happy as well, but... different.

It's safe, and honestly, he can kind of believe he's going to stay safe, forever, feeling this.  It feels like home and family and fireflies on a peaceful summer night.  Everything is fine.  Everything is going to be oka-

"Prince, are you okay?"  

His eyes open.

Oh they're- at the top?  Already?  

Prince's mouth opens, closes, and then opens again.

"Ye-yeah I'm... I'm fine, ma'am."

Sinjoh Ruins | Morning
L-44 / A-67


The walk to the top was long but thankfully less eventful than anything else the small group had endured in the last 24 hours since their first meeting. The group was quiet, almost solemn, as the journey towards the possibility of proving a higher power grew ever closer, a feat the fighter herself would have questioned not a few weeks prior. Was it really possible to summon God? They would see once they reached the temple Cynthia spoke, assuming they knew how to use the flute she showed them correctly.

Lexa had used enough energy for four Blaze Kicks to keep her legs lit and was exhausted so the moment they reached the top she found herself leaning against one of the stone pillars despite its chill. She just needed a moment to catch her breath. Her eyes kept a careful watch on the rest of the group as they made it to the level surface of the stairway to ensure they had all made it and no one fell. They all seemed no worse for wear though poor Silver looked ready to crawl into an open flame he was so cold.

"Prince, are you okay?"

Lexa's gaze pulled away from the group to focus solely on the fairy and found him in a similar state of concentration to Anubis until his eyes opened to address Cynthia. Anubis's eyes opened as well as the smaller being spoke and he moved closer to Lexa with a soft smile. Had...had they been sharing? She was going to question it but Anubis simply cuddled against her rather than open up under her inquiring gaze. It was nice to see him so affectionate again.

"So Miss Cynthia, where to from here?"

Prince suddenly glanced up at her voice before answering somewhat shakily,"Ye-yeah I'm... I'm fine, ma'am." The small fairy didn't appear any worse for the wear, and it seemed like he was simply startled. She wasn't sure what might have been bothering him, but whatever it was seemed to have been resolved. She sent him a reassuring smile before turning to face the entrance of the strange stone building. It had a lot more snow on it this time, but thankfully the entrance was still unblocked. Her excitement was building at the sight. Everything she had studied up to this point could be put to use!

Lexa asked, "So Miss Cynthia, where to from here?"

"This way," she called out, and she all but ran to where she knew the worn down building's entrance to be. Guinevere shared her trainer's excitement, and handily beat Cynthia to the small entrance. The overhang was completely covered in snow and ice, but the opening was otherwise safe. Both trainer and Pokemon were almost bouncing on their heels as they waited for the rest of the party to catch up, and before the first one made it to them, she had pulled out her flashlight. By the time the rest of the party made it, she was already shining the light into the ruins. Guinevere was close to her trainer and prepared for anything to jump out at them. Sudden lights often scared living Pokemon into attacking, and there was always the chance for undead. Anubis nor Prince gave any indication of sensing living or undead, so Cynthia then entered the strange building. She warned, "If you have a flashlight or anything to help with lighting, please feel free to use them. Just.. don't attack the walls or anything... Even though they've stood up this long, I wouldn't want to risk them coming down on us."

"Strange that it's so dark in here," Guinevere commented. Even though she could see fairly well, she had recalled the presence of much more light.

"It's probably all the snow packed on the top. Not nearly as much natural lighting can seep in. They used to try keeping that clean... Or we're still getting over being out in the snow. " Cynthia mused.

As everyone's eyes adjusted to the drop in light brightness the could see a massive room that belied the stone building's size. There were six massive statues lining the path that they were on, and if one stopped to analyze them, they would notice that they were very similar to the statues in the caves they had been in yesterday. However, the statues were minuscule in comparison to the large... thing that covered the far end of the room. It was too finely cut to be natural, and in the middle of stone object, one could see built in stairs that would allow one to stand on it. There was some ice and rubble strewn about the floor, but time had been kinder than Cynthia had expected. Her excitement was tempered with reverence, and though she still walked quickly down the path, it wasn't with the near giddiness that had taken a hold of her earlier. Once she was standing at the foot of the stairs that towered over her and Guinevere, she turned to the others and said, "This is the Mistri Stage."

"So Miss Cynthia, where to from here?"

"This way," came the call, and she ran on ahead, her dragon right behind her. Prince closed his eyes, taking in deep breaths and exhaling them slowly as the others moved to catch up with the enthusiastic lady and Guinevere. "If you have a flashlight or anything to help with lighting, please feel free to use them. Just.. don't attack the walls or anything... Even though they've stood up this long, I wouldn't want to risk them coming down on us."

"Strange that it's so dark in here."

"It's probably all the snow packed on the top. Not nearly as much natural lighting can seep in. They used to try keeping that clean... Or we're still getting over being out in the snow. "

Oh, so the snow is making it dark. He's not very surprised. Snow sucks.

It took a few minutes to adjust to the poor lighting, the tiny fairy's mouth opening slightly in awe at what the darkness was hiding. Massive statues and stone architecture from ages past, like an cient temple from a fairytale. Is this real life? Had they walked straight into a legend of old? A storybook, a video game, a movie? This can't be real.

"This is the Mistri Stage."

"Th-the what?"

"So Miss Cynthia, where to from here?" Lexa asked as Azelf glances around, feeling familiarity tickling at his mind. Oh yes, this place feels very much like Father, somehow...

"This way." Cynthai says, darting ahead with her dragon. Azelf speeds up his flight to follow, stopping shortly after they do and waiting for the others to catch up, squinting in the darkness. His eyes are rubbish; a shiver runs up his spine as the realization bubbles up-- should he ever lose his sense of hearing, his survival efforts will be much impaired...

"If you have a flashlight or anything to help with lighting, please feel free to use them. Just.. don't attack the walls or anything... Even though they've stood up this long, I wouldn't want to risk them coming down on us."

"Strange that it's so dark in here."

Is it? It's been abandoned for a long while now...

"It's probably all the snow packed on the top. Not nearly as much natural lighting can seep in. They used to try keeping that clean... Or we're still getting over being out in the snow. "

His forehead jewel lights up, illuminating the area and making his lips part slightly in surprise. That stage...

"This is the Mistri Stage."

"Th-the what?"

"I recognize that- the crests of Father and three of my siblings." He bobbed up higher and pointed to each one. "Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina. This is it; this must be the place!"

The climb up was harsh for Silver, but Gold seemed to just be beside himself with happiness. Stupid Gold. Nothing ever phased him. Eugh. "This way." called the Champion, and Silver was simply glad that there was likely a reprieve from this cold. Bastard snow. He hurried inside, happy to be rid of the biting wind and for a moment was stunned by the instant darkness.

"If you have a flashlight or anything to help with lighting, please feel free to use them. Just.. don't attack the walls or anything... Even though they've stood up this long, I wouldn't want to risk them coming down on us." Yeah, decent logic. Thankfully, Bitey flared her neck to shine some light on the surroundings. It helped a bit.

"Strange that it's so dark in here." Well, since electric lighting probably wasn't a thing yet...

"It's probably all the snow packed on the top. Not nearly as much natural lighting can seep in. They used to try keeping that clean... Or we're still getting over being out in the snow. "

Azelf lightens his jewel and suddenly the entire room was bathed in a dim, gentle glow. The carvings were intricately woven throughout the room in designs that looked vaguely familiar. "This is the Mistri Stage."

"Th-the what?"

"Yeah, what the shit is that?"

"I recognize that- the crests of Father and three of my siblings." He bobbed up higher and pointed to each one. "Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina. This is it; this must be the place!"

"The place to summon... Arceus?" Silver's voice was still incredibly saturated with doubt. He made a small grunt. "...Right. It's... pretty and all, but..."

"Dude, it looks like Christmas!" Gold exclaimed as he danced around. "I love this place!"

"This way."

Lexa followed the blonde without question as she hurried into the darkness. The shadows were so thick here it was almost as though something were doing it on purpose but she didn't feel any threats nor did Anubis give any indication of other auras. "Strange that it's so dark in here." At least she wasn't the only one deterred by it. Even her lit wrists did very little against the blackness surrounding them.

"It's probably all the snow packed on the top. Not nearly as much natural lighting can seep in. They used to try keeping that clean... Or we're still getting over being out in the snow. " Actually the second one made a lot of sense, the snow reflected so much light it could have made their sensitivity to shadow incredibly skewed. Thankfully Azelf made himself a beacon for the group and they were able to see a bit more. Anubis even marveled at the magnificent carvings and depictions of the Gods.

"This is the Mistri Stage."

"Th-the what?"

"Yeah, what the shit is that?"

"I recognize that- the crests of Father and three of my siblings. Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina. This is it; this must be the place!" Azelf was so happy... "The place to summon... Arceus? ...Right. It's... pretty and all, but..." Lexa nodded despite not wanting to hurt the Legend's feelings. "He has a point. If this is the place shouldn't there be...something else here? Anything at all? All I see are symbols."

"Dude, it looks like Christmas! I love this place!" Anubis smiled at Gold's description as his closed eyes seemed to focus on the center of the stage. If Gold could only see what he saw. Colors of every imagining danced across the platform and all centered around the middle point in the drawings and fascinated the Lucario. God or no God this was an incredible thing to behold.

It didn't take long for the questions to pour in. Prince timidly asked, "Th-the what?"

Silver was a bit more blunt, "Yeah, what the shit is that?"

Before she could answer, Azelf floated higher and pointed to each symbol marked on the stage. "I recognize that- the crests of Father and three of my siblings. Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina. This is it; this must be the place!" Her smile grew bigger at the little legend's enthusiasm that mirrored her own.

The revelation tempered Silver a little, but it was clear he was still doubtful. "The place to summon... Arceus? ...Right. It's... pretty and all, but..."

Lexa also expressed some of her doubts, "He has a point. If this is the place shouldn't there be...something else here? Anything at all? All I see are symbols."


Gold, however, practically danced as he looked around and exclaimed, "Dude, it looks like Christmas! I love this place!"

Cynthia and Guinevere enjoyed the energy that the others were giving off, even if some of them had their doubts. She gave a little more information, "This stage was built to show respect for Arceus. Music and dancing were often used to celebrate his power, and legend says that music played by the Azure Flute could summon Arceus himself." Here she rummaged around in her bag as she looked for the fabled relic. Once she pulled out the strange ocarina like object, Cynthia thought she could feel a shift in the energy of the ruins as if the stage itself recognized the flute. She turned away from the group  to look at the runes written on the side Her personal flashlight helped her eyes focus a bit more on the faded Unown letters. "The specifics of each ceremony performed here are written here, and I want to make sure I play the right song." She ran a finger under each symbol to make sure she didn't lose her place.

"Yeah, what the shit is that?"

Rudely put, but it feels more like he's confused than bothered.

The emotion is quickly drowned by the intense joy that Azelf radiates like a sun. "I recognize that- the crests of Father and three of my siblings. Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina. This is it; this must be the place!"

"The place to summon... Arceus? ...Right. It's... pretty and all, but..."

"He has a point. If this is the place shouldn't there be...something else here? Anything at all? All I see are symbols." She has a point. There has to be more here, right? He tries to look over at Azelf from Gold's arms, losing his composure as the young man's excitement overwhelms him. The way he's racing around, he wasn't going to get a good look at Azelf anyway.

"Dude, it looks like Christmas! I love this place!"

That was a funny way to put it. But a pretty good way to phrase it.

"This stage was built to show respect for Arceus. Music and dancing were often used to celebrate his power, and legend says that music played by the Azure Flute could summon Arceus himself." She rummages around, pulling out a funny little instrument. He doesn't get a very good look with Gold moving around so much. Was that a flute he saw? It didn't look much like a flute. Maybe if he could get Gold to stop moving and walk closer? "The specifics of each ceremony performed here are written here, and I want to make sure I play the right song."

"If you don't though, can't you just try again?" There are people here. It's dark and dark is bad, but there are people here, strong people, and they're in a holy place. Shouldn't it be safe, at least for a little bit? She doesn't have to do it right the very first try. Instruments are hard to play, he's pretty sure.

"The place to summon... Arceus? ...Right. It's... pretty and all, but..." the young man trails off, scepticism and disappointment on the tip of his tongue. Azelf blinks, frowning as he considers this, turning his head to face Lexa as she voices her own thoughts.

"He has a point. If this is the place shouldn't there be...something else here? Anything at all? All I see are symbols."

Well, he supposes they're right. Actually, he can't help but stare at the symbols, wishing he knew what they said.

"Dude, it looks like Christmas! I love this place!" Gold yells, Azelf breaking into soft, helpless giggles at the childlike glee in his voice.

"This stage was built to show respect for Arceus. Music and dancing were often used to celebrate his power, and legend says that music played by the Azure Flute could summon Arceus himself." The pixie glances over in time to watch Cynthia take from her bag something that is most definitely an instrument but not the long, slender, stick-like object he knows as a flute. "The specifics of each ceremony performed here are written here, and I want to make sure I play the right song."

"If you don't though, can't you just try again?"

"... Or would it break?" He seems to recall hearing from his beloved little human friend, years ago, the legend of a holy instrument that could only be played once before it would shatter.

"This stage was built to show respect for Arceus. Music and dancing were often used to celebrate his power, and legend says that music played by the Azure Flute could summon Arceus himself." Wait. A flute? A fucking flute? The squeaky, airy instrument, possibly the most annoying in any orchestra aside from a piccolo -which is just a really high flute- was the instrument to summon God Himself?. Silver couldn't stop his eyes from rolling if he tried. "The specifics of each ceremony performed here are written here, and I want to make sure I play the right song."

"If you don't though, can't you just try again?" the little Ralts asked, which, really, just made sense.

"... Or would it break?"

"Why would it break?" Silver blurted, looking at the artifact in Cynthia's hands. Gold shrugged.

"Because it's super old and fragile?"

Silver rolled his eyes again. "I meant why would it break if she played the wrong song?"

Gold shrugged again. "Magic?"

"This stage was built to show respect for Arceus. Music and dancing were often used to celebrate his power, and legend says that music played by the Azure Flute could summon Arceus himself." Lexa watched as Cynthia pulled the mentioned object from her bag and begin to look it over. It didn't look like much, an ordinary instrument from what she could tell aside from its luster. Finely crafted perhaps but still well within the realm of ordinary.

The human female began to study the walls and the room carefully leaving the rest of them to wait, not that Anubis noticed as he was still focusing on the spectrum of colors dancing across the platform. So many tendrils reaching out and dancing across the walls, the ceiling, the floor, it was like watching a ballet of color. He happily followed each one around the room and gave little care to the doings of the others. "The specifics of each ceremony performed here are written here, and I want to make sure I play the right song." Hm? Oh, the flute she mentioned. He had vaguely tuned into that part earlier but since he didn't have the digits or mind required for such an instrument he knew he would be of little help and went back to his colors.

"If you don't though, can't you just try again?"

"... Or would it break?" Break? That caught Lexa's attention. Would it? Would one screw up mean the entire trip here had been for naught?

"Why would it break?"

"Because it's super old and fragile?"

Silver seemed to have little care for Gold's attempts at logic. "I meant why would it break if she played the wrong song?"

"Magic?"

Anubis had seen a strange tendril of color stretching across the middle of the room and followed, noticing it thinned the further it reached away from the stage. But it seemed to have a destination in mind, like it was seeking something. The Lucario found himself behind Cynthia without realizing until he noticed that it was reaching for her, or rather what she was holding. "It wants the flute..." he mumbled absent minded. "It can feel it. How strange..."

Lexa looked at her ward with concern and placed a taloned hand upon his shoulder. "What do you mean Anubis?" His eyes were closed, did that mean he was sensing something the rest of them couldn't see? "Is something there?" Her question was answered almost by coincidence as Anubis opened his eyes and looked at the blonde woman with a small smile, giving no indication he heard Lexa at all. "Play the blue ones. Azure...for the flute..."

Her focus was broken when Prince's small voice asked a question, "If you don't though, can't you just try again?"

This caused an onlsot of other questions from the others, and she had to force herself to turn back and listen.  Azelf's question confused her greatly as she tried to make sense of it. "... Or would it break?" ...Oh wait, he must be thinking of a different mythical flute. Her first guess would be Celebi's time flute, but she didn't think it broke if someone played the wrong song. There was something about it being fragile... Silver and Gold broke into a short banter about the matter.

Before they got much further, she interrupted, "No... it won't break, and I do have multiple chances. However, it has been a long time since I've had to look at the songs here, and trial and error would take much longer. There is a flute that loses its power the more it is used, but it's not this one."

While the others had been talking, Guinevere kept an eye an Anubis as he wandered around with his eyes closed. It looked like he was following something that only he could see with his aura readers. She was reminded of the last time they had been here, and Fenrir had made a comment about the strange colors. Soon he wandered over to Cynthia, and he muttered, "It wants the flute... It can feel it. How strange..."

Lexa, concerned for her charge, laid a claw on his shoulder and asked, "What do you mean Anubis? Is something there?"

As if in a daze, the young Lucario opened his eyes and cryptically said, "Play the blue ones. Azure...for the flute..." He had a smile on his face, and Cynthia paused as the strange words fully hit her. She blinked a few times as she tried to understand what he had said, and it took her a few moments to remember that he was likely reading the energy of the place. Unfortunately, since she couldn't see what he did, his helpful comment wasn't very helpful.

She didn't want to seem unappreciative, though, and she managed say, "Thank you, but... I can't see the aura here."  Before any more questions could be thrown her way, she firmly, but not unkindly, said, "I'm really sorry, but I need to focus to read the writing here. It shouldn't take me too much longer." The last part was added as a promise. She finally turned back and aimed her flashlight where she had left off and continued going down the lines.

((There will be a short time skip after this round finishes. It won't be longer than an hour.))

"... Or would it break?"

Break? Why would it break?

"Why would it break?" Silver voices before he could put the thought into words.

"Because it's super old and fragile?"

"I meant why would it break if she played the wrong song?"

"Magic?"

Well, it's not like that would be very far-fetched.

"No... it won't break, and I do have multiple chances." Cynthia answers as the little fairy's attention was stolen by Anubis. He's... walking around with his eyes closed? Why? He looks pretty happy though... "However, it has been a long time since I've had to look at the songs here, and trial and error would take much longer. There is a flute that loses its power the more it is used, but it's not this one."

Prince watches as his route takes him to Cynthia, the canine muttering. "It wants the flute... It can feel it. How strange..."

His caretaker laid a hand on his shoulder, concerned. Prince tilts his head. "What do you mean Anubis? Is something there?"

"Play the blue ones. Azure...for the flute..." Blue ones? What blue ones? What can he see? It must be aura stuff.

"Thank you, but... I can't see the aura here." A pause later, she adds, "I'm really sorry, but I need to focus to read the writing here. It shouldn't take me too much longer."

Well... better not bother her then. With large eyes full of wonder, Prince addresses Anubis.

"It must be beautiful, being able to see whatever you saw. I wish I could see it too."

Sinjoh Ruins || Morning || 54


"Why would it break?"
"Because it's super old and fragile?"
"I meant why would it break if she played the wrong song?"
"Magic?"

That may not be quite the right word, but there's no other way to put it.

"No... it won't break, and I do have multiple chances." Cynthia speaks up before Azelf can answer, the pixie turning to watch her. "However, it has been a long time since I've had to look at the songs here, and trial and error would take much longer. There is a flute that loses its power the more it is used, but it's not this one."

Anubis walks up to Cynthia, eyeing the flute. Oh! Does he see something? Can inanimate objects even have auras? Shoot, maybe he should've endeavored to learn more about Lucario and their aura sense...

"It wants the flute... It can feel it. How strange..."

"What do you mean Anubis? Is something there?"

"Play the blue ones. Azure...for the flute..."

"Thank you, but... I can't see the aura here." Is there anyway to fix that? Maybe if Anubis pointed out 'the blue ones' to her?

"I'm really sorry, but I need to focus to read the writing here. It shouldn't take me too much longer."

Or not. That's fair enough, he supposes.

"It must be beautiful, being able to see whatever you saw. I wish I could see it too."

"I bet there are places where the auras make it look like a light show," Azelf murmurs to himself, wishing he could see it, too. This place is probably full of auras, auras he'll never see.

Sinjoh Ruins||Morning


"No... it won't break, and I do have multiple chances." Cynthia replied, earning a triumphant grin from Gold and a scowl from Silver. How the hell did she know? What, did she already play the damn thing? "However, it has been a long time since I've had to look at the songs here, and trial and error would take much longer. There is a flute that loses its power the more it is used, but it's not this one."

Anubis was suddenly there, a strange, almost hypnotized look in his wide eyes. For a moment, Silver tensed, unsure of what was going on in the Pokemon's mind, but apparently, it wasn't any sort of danger. Just... odd. "It wants the flute... It can feel it. How strange..."

Apparently, Silver wasn't the only one that noticed the strange lilt in Anubis' voice. Lexa placed a careful hand on her charge's shoulder, and very carefully asked, "What do you mean Anubis? Is something there?"

"Play the blue ones. Azure...for the flute..." Yeah, that wasn't fucking terrifying at all. A glance to Gold told Silver that his old rival hadn't heard anything; he was still entranced with the chamber itself. Figured.

Cynthia managed to navigate through the conversation without upsetting the Lucario. "Thank you, but... I can't see the aura here." She fiddled with the flute a moment before excusing herself. "I'm really sorry, but I need to focus to read the writing here. It shouldn't take me too much longer."

"It must be beautiful, being able to see whatever you saw," Prince sighed from his perch. "I wish I could see it too."

"I bet there are places where the auras make it look like a light show," Azelf mused.

Silver made a small, non-committal noise. He'd known an aura-reader, for a short while. And from what he remembered Riley telling him, being able to see such things was certainly not what it was cracked up to be. His fingers unconsciously went to the hidden pendant beneath his shirt as the memory of the young man filtered through his mind. What would Riley think of any of this? What would he see in that flute? Would he have been as entranced with it as Anubis?

Guess he'd never know...
