"Wooooooow."

"Yes I- I would say that about sums it all up, Prince."

"So... do we just... wait?"

"I have a feeling we will know soon enough..."

The words of the others were lost on Cynthia's ears as she was enraptured by the glowing runes and symbols. This was finally happening! Anticipation filled her entire being; she would be before Arceus himself in a few more seconds. Then she only had to ask him to fix the Epidemic, and she couldn't think of any reason for him to deny the request. Things could go back to normal. Their losses wouldn't have been in vain...

Guinevere stood by her trainer's side, and the dragon was just as entranced. While she had her own reservations about the occasion, she couldn't deny how beautiful the lights were. There was still a little voice of doubt, but she kept it quashed. This was obviously working, and it could only go uphill from here.

The glowing intensified as the runes of the major circle lit up one by one, and now the full emblem on the stage was glowing with a white light. Suddenly, the lights all went out except for the innermost circle, but its light burned with almost all the intensity of the earlier light show. It was impossible to see within the circle, but that was to be expected according to what Cynthia had read.

"The lead enters the Mystri Stage at last," Cynthia muttered reverentially. She slowly approached the glowing circle with Guinevere on her heels. "Arceus!? We have called upon you for we are in need of your aid!" She called out. Triumphant at the ritual's apparent success, she didn't notice Guin's unease.

Guinevere heard something from the circle, and it wasn't what she would have expected from an all powerful deity. She couldn't place the sound, but it didn't feel right. "Cynthia," Guin whispered and put a claw on her trainer's shoulder. This halted the woman's advancement. "Something's not right. Listen."

Cynthia was immensely confused, but she did as her dragon bid. In the silence of the ruins, a faint sound could be heard coming from the circle of light. As she focused on it, something gripped her heart in ice. It was crying. Arceus was weeping. There was no reaction to her earlier plea. No verbal response, no change in lighting. As the seconds ticked into minutes, all they could hear was crying. The ritual's power started to fade, but it was almost as if the sound intensified. The crying filled their ears and blocked out any form of rational thought before it finally ended with the fading of the circle's glow. There was nothing left.

The others chattered but Prince didn't give any indication of having heard them. For the first time in quite awhile, he found himself entirely focused on one thing and not because that thing was a danger.

For the first time in quite awhile, he felt hope.

Held there in Azelf's arms, he waited, the pretty lights reflected in his wide, pink eyes as he watched each rune light up one by one, until the entire emblem glowed with light. With a sudden difference in the lighting that was a shock to the eyes, all of the glowing shut down with the exception pf the innermost circle.

It was too bright for him to look at. Childishly, Prince tried anyway for a moment, squinting, but it wasn't more then a moment or two before he had to cover his eyes.

"The lead enters the Mystri Stage at last," he heard Cynthia say in a murmur. He heard footsteps. Was she walking closer? He peeked through his hands. Yes, she was. Was that a good idea? What if that light hurt her?

... Then again, it didn't feel hot. So maybe it was safe.

"Arceus!? We have called upon you for we are in need of your aid!"

There was no reply.

But there was a noise. A faint sound. He wasn't the only one who heard it, either; Azelf's body went rigid against his and a scream nearly bubbled out of the fairy as he felt Azelf nearly drop him, but thankfully, the pixie caught himself just in time and clung to him tighter.

What had Azelf...?

"Cynthia," That was Guinivere. He turned to squint at her. "Something's not right. Listen."

... Was...

Was that crying?

Was god crying?

His mouth fell open.

The lights lasted only a couple minutes more, but even as the lights faded, the sound grew louder. If there was any doubt as to what it was before, there wasn't now.

And then suddenly, it was over. No lights. No sound.

Only silence.

For about a moment, and then Prince jerked in shock at the cry that ripped from what felt like the center of Azelf's being.

At the same time, he withered at the torrent of horror and anger that took hold of his friend.

Just as Prince was entirely focused on what unfolded in front of them, so too was Azelf.

He tried to tune in to the voices of their companions, but Father! I am going to see my father! overrode any other focus he had. A fierce joy filled him, something so bright and hot that he suspected, had he wandered outside into the snow, it would have been enough to keep him warm for a good long while. His heart would not stop pounding. He couldn't even remember the last time it had beat so hard and so fast when it was not out of terror.

This would actually turn out all right. He was going to see his father at long last. They would be able to wake the likely-sleeping god, and he would end this nightmare. Rebuilding would be hard, but oh, it would be much better than all of... this.

He held Prince close, watching along with the little fairy as the runes began to alight one at a time. He tried to concentrate on the beautiful sight, but still, he was preoccupied with thoughts of his father.

How he had missed him!

He couldn't even remember the last time he had spoken to him!

The lights drew his attention very suddenly when they all went out except for the innermost circle. Instead of most of the room becoming dark, the single light blazed so brightly thatlooking directly at it was painful.

It reminded him, a little, of that time Prince had found what the humans called a camera, and the two had deigned to fool around with it for a good few hours. Azelf had never truly been a child; having been created with an adult's intellect, there hadn't been much in the way of play for him at any point in his life except for when the little girl had visited him. Playing with the camera had proved to be great fun, as well as educational, but at one point he had accidentally set what Prince referred to as 'the flash' off right in his face. It had hurt.

As he had that time his gaze fell to squinting. A lot of squinting. He tried shielding his eyes with a hand but that did absolutely nothing, so he turned his head and tried to watch that way. It still did nothing to help.

But he was basically the god of being stubborn.

"The lead enters the Mystri Stage at last." That was Cynthia, he noted, and he glanced over at her to find the woman walking towards the light. He didn't worry much. She should be fine.

"Arceus!? We have called upon you for we are in need of your aid!"

Silence. He frowned, tangled threads of worry beginning to close in his stomach. Why wasn't Father answering?

And then, suddenly, a sound. Soft and faint, he nearly missed it at first, but once he heard it, it took only a moment to connect the dots and realize what it was.

Crippling, paralyzing horror siezed him, the tangles tightening into knots. Dizzy, his arms began to slip away from Prince, and he only just remembered himself and managed to catch the boy, shifting him in his arms and clutching him.

Guinivere spoke, but he didn't hear her.

His father was... weeping.

Quiet, mournful weeping. It froze his heart solid, whited out all other thought with terror.

The sound grew steadily louder, a cacophony of misery. It whirled around him like a blizzard, the pixie hanging onto Prince for dear life.

He was drowning, drowning, drowning.

And then it stopped. The lights finished fading. He had not noticed they had started to. The sobs went silent, cutting off.

He floated there for only a moment longer in silence before he turned haunted eyes up at the ceiling.

Rage.

The horror all but vanished in the wake of the fury that filled him, Azelf almost forgetting the presence of anyone else in the room as he opened his mouth and roared at the ceiling as if his father were just above them.

"What the hell was that!?" He gained some height, shooting up about a foot or so, still holding Prince in his arms. Had he had room for any other thoughts in his head, he would have been concerned about Prince's silence. "What do you mean by that!? Do you just not care!? How could you do that, just- cry like that, when you have the power to stop all of this! How could you, Father!?"

Sinjoh Ruins||Morning



Everyone was still as the runes and designs lit up, in awe as the ancient chamber came to life. For once, Silver felt apprehension rise in his gut as he realized that this could be it. Though he'd been a stout atheist for his entire life, this could... they could finally have answers. He squinted as the light became too bright to bear, and his hand shot up to shield his eyes. Cynthia strode confidently toward it, unafraid of the fact that a very old ruin just whirred to life like a lighthouse. "The lead enters the Mystri Stage at last," Cynthia muttered to herself as her dragon followed on her heels. Silver stayed in place and barred Gold from following with his free arm. This solemn moment really didn't need Gold to fuck things up. "Arceus!? We have called upon you for we are in need of your aid!" Silver's heart pounded in his ears, and--

...Silence.

Fucking.... silence.

But Gold quirked his head as the dragon caught her trainer's attention. "Something's not right. Listen." Sure enough, there was... something from the light. Some sort of sound, but not... words. For some reason, Silver looked to Gold and saw the strangest look on the other man's face. He... Was Gold actually scared? No... that wasn't fear... What was that?

The noise persisted and Silver directed his attention back to the light and the god that was apparently beyond it. That sound.... it was... Silver's face contorted as he finally recognized it. It was crying.

Why the fuck was this "God" weeping?!

Too soon, the lights faded and, the ritual complete, the weeping ceased. As Silver was about to unleash his fury, Azelf beat him to it.

"What the hell was that!?" the Psychic Legend roared, floating up toward the ceiling as if it would somehow bring him closer to his Father. "What do you mean by that!? Do you just not care!? How could you do that, just- cry like that, when you have the power to stop all of this! How could you, Father!?"

"What kind of 'god' just sits there and cries?!" Silver joined in, snapping at the carved murals in the walls. "Cynthia, play the damn song again, bring that asshole back so we can get an actual answer out of him!"

Sinjoh Ruins | Late Morning
L-49 / A-72


It seemed almost like an ancient machine coming to life as the lights around them began to glow and flare to life in a harmonic order. Each piece effected the next until the center of the stage became brilliantly lit, the lights around them fading as the center became more luminous than anything Lexa or Anubis had ever seen before. It got to a point Lexa had to shield her eyes from the glare and Anubis quickly slammed his aura sense down when the power within the light became too much for him to comprehend. Was...was that truly Arceus?

"The lead enters the Mystri Stage at last."

Cynthia approached the light with all the reverence she could muster and Lexa chanced peering out beyond her forearm to witness the blond woman step forward. It was like something out of one of those human videos, her entire form bathed in ethereal light as a wind that couldn't possibly exist pushed and pulled at her clothing and hair. The sheer power it would take to create a vacuum like that within the center of a ruin... It had to be him. But something was missing. Why was it so silent?

"Arceus!? We have called upon you for we are in need of your aid!"

There was no answer. Nothing. Had it not been done correctly? Was there even a God within to hear her cries? Or was this simply a gateway? What was happening here? "Cynthia, something's not right. Listen." And listen Lexa did. And listen Lexa wished she had not.

The response that came forth was not one of command or divinity, but one of judgement and remorse. The sound started out soft but then as she listened seem to grow until it was thundering in her head like a thousand Tauros stampeding through her brain. God. Was. Weeping. Crying for his lost creations when he had little more to do than wave his stupid pointy foot and fix everything! What kind of a God was this?! How could he simply give up?! They hadn't given up but someone with the power of fucking creation could just roll over and surrender to the end of the world? No! Bullshit!

Anubis, however, was having a far different reaction than his normally stoic partner. At the command to listen he had risked reaching out with his aura sense again and found himself assaulted by the brilliance of Arceus's aura. It overwhelmed his senses and his mind as hundreds of memories flooded his brain, bathing him with guilt and pain enough to match the heartbroken sobs of their creator. Each cry, each sob, each tear that dared streak through that perfect aura stabbed at Anubis's soul like frozen fire. He relived the deaths of everyone he had ever loved a hundred times before the light finally faded from view and even once the aura was gone their bodies were still frozen in his mind. Was this...was this God? Was this his punishment for failing them? To suffer this new world because of his sins?

"What the hell was that!?" Azelf screamed at the heavens, the gateway long since closed.  "What do you mean by that!? Do you just not care!? How could you do that, just- cry like that, when you have the power to stop all of this! How could you, Father!?" Lexa felt herself becoming even more riled as the Legendary went on and was quickly spurred into a rage.

"What kind of 'god' just sits there and cries?!" Silver agreed forcefully. "Cynthia, play the damn song again, bring that asshole back so we can get an actual answer out of him!"

"Forget answers! I just want to drag him over to this side so he can suffer with us! If he wants to cry in the corner let him do it on the UN-safe side of the door!"

Anubis could hear everyone's angry cries but despite their rage and devastation he couldn't feel anything. It was like his heart had been turned off as he listened to their rants. His body, numb to the world around him, slowly slid to the floor on his knees eyes never leaving the now empty stage. He had spent all of this time never even believing Arceus was real and now he knew the truth. Arceus was real but sinners like him would never get the peace they desired. Only justice awaited them. A justice in the form of a rotting world full of anger, death, and pain. This was their legacy and Arceus had given up trying to save them from it.

With the sound and light gone, Cynthia found herself standing uncomprehending of what had just ocurred. The guillotine blade of realization had yet to fall upon her. Then a cry of anger echoed in the quiet ruins, and it felt as if time suddenly started again. Despite this, she still stood and stared at the now empty circle. Why didn't Arceus help us? He should have been able to fix this! She didn't know when the tears had started to fall, but her vision blurred enough to make her raise a hand to her face. As she stared at the wetness on her hand, an icy horror gripped her heart and squeezed. It can't be fixed. The Azure Flute fell out of her other hand and landed hollowly onto the stage.

Azelf shot into the air even higher and yelled at the uncaring ceiling, "What the hell was that!?" What do you mean by that!? Do you just not care!? How could you do that, just- cry like that, when you have the power to stop all of this! How could you, Father!?"

"What kind of 'god' just sits there and cries?!" Silver joined in Azelf's anger. "Cynthia, play the damn song again, bring that asshole back so we can get an actual answer out of him!" What would be the point? Arceus didn't even deign to say no or why the first time. A second attempt wouldn't make the answer any different.

Lexa joined the cacophony of anger as she shouted, "Forget answers! I just want to drag him over to this side so he can suffer with us! If he wants to cry in the corner let him do it on the UN-safe side of the door!"

Guinevere stood in a similar fashion as her trainer. While she had been hesitant to place all of their eggs into one basket, she still hadn't expected this to go so poorly. Arceus was already weeping over the lost world and either couldn't or wouldn't fix it. She looked down at her trainer who still was not responding to the world around her. Even though she had been called by name, the champion hadn't stopped her thousand yard stare at the empty circle. This was bad. This was really bad. "It doesn't work like that," Guin said as she turned to face the others. If Cynthia couldn't do this, then she had to. "All it does is open a gateway that allows us to speak to Arceus. We can't make him speak or cross over if he doesn't want to." And he clearly doesn't...

His head was ringing with rage and sorrow and horror. He wasn't sure what was his and what belonged to those around him. Limp in Azelf's grasp, he remained silent as Azelf shot up closer to the ceiling and roared his anger at it as though his father were up there right this moment.

"What the hell was that!?" What do you mean by that!? Do you just not care!? How could you do that, just- cry like that, when you have the power to stop all of this! How could you, Father!?"

Silver wasn't about to remain silent, either. Head spinning, he barely heard Silver join in the yelling. "What kind of 'god' just sits there and cries?! Cynthia, play the damn song again, bring that asshole back so we can get an actual answer out of him!"

For a split second, Prince wanted to laugh at the image of Silver trying to shake answers out of Arceus. Then the emotions drowned him again.

"Forget answers! I just want to drag him over to this side so he can suffer with us! If he wants to cry in the corner let him do it on the UN-safe side of the door!"

"It doesn't work like that." Guinivere added her own voice to what could politely be called a discussion and realistically be called a fucking mess. "All it does is open a gateway that allows us to speak to Arceus. We can't make him speak or cross over if he doesn't want to."

"What did we do wrong?" he whispered, fixing his blank eyes on the ceiling as tears began to stream down his face.

"What kind of 'god' just sits there and cries?!" Silver added to Azelf's outrage, fueling his fury as the sudden voice reminded him of the presence of other people here, people who had just heard their god do nothing to help them. "Cynthia, play the damn song again, bring that asshole back so we can get an actual answer out of him!"

Azelf was inclined to agree. He didn't care how long it would take; he would draw those answers from his father. You can't just abandon your children! We did not ask to exist!

"Forget answers! I just want to drag him over to this side so he can suffer with us! If he wants to cry in the corner let him do it on the UN-safe side of the door!"

Azelf descended to pick up the flute; he would find a way to play the stupid thing himself.

"It doesn't work like that." Guinivere's voice stopped him just as he was about level with Cynthia's shoulder. He looked over at her. "All it does is open a gateway that allows us to speak to Arceus. We can't make him speak or cross over if he doesn't want to."

"What did we do wrong?" Prince whispered, hollow eyes fixed on the circle.

"Nothing," he assured, his voice sharp with anger. "You did absolutely nothing! None of you deserved any of this! I thought- I thought he must be asleep over on his plane of existence or- there was some other problem!" His head snapped back up to yell at the ceiling. "How dare you! How dare you put us on this planet and leave us alone to figure it out, and then do nothing when some rando ruins it for everyone!? None of us asked to be here! How can you just refuse to help I would have given my life to save the people of my lake! A million times over if I had to!"

There were tears running down his face. He didn't notice.

"You won't even do it for us, will you!? Not even for the creatures you directly created! Whose eggs you put on this planet and- and called us your children- told us we had a purpose- Uxie and Mesprit could be dead somewhere and you don't even care, do you; you just needed us to give our gifts to the humans and after that we were useless to you!"

Gold couldn't hear the others as they shouted and snarled at the god that had just spurned them. His mind was too much of a whirling vortex to fixate on the vitriol that they were currently drowning in. So much had just happened to him, so much had just revealed itself to him in that blinding light and that silent, horrific weeping.

The fog in which he'd lived his life had lifted.

Flashes of his mother, of his childhood. Of his journey. All the comments, the slight details, the sideways glances... They had meant nothing to him before. They'd rolled harmlessly off his back and he'd never thought about them again. But now, now in the warm divine light of this unknown god, he knew everything. He knew now what they had all meant. His mother had hated him. Loathed him. Resented him. Blamed him for her miserable life spent at the bottom of a cheap bottle of wine. She insulted him, tried to abandon him, stole his money to fuel her vices. His father? He'd never cared. Never wanted anything to do with them again. And here, here he stood in the aura of a god that didn't even bother to say anything to them in their most dire hour of need.

His entire childhood had been a lie. A lie he himself had not only created, but whole-heartedly believed in. And...

And...

Wait. As the light faded, so did his thoughts, his comprehension. He blinked, unable to move or speak as the very words were stolen from his mind's voice. No. No, wait. He'd just... He'd just understood. He finally understood... Why was it leaving. WHY WAS IT LEAVING!? Horrified, his eyes bulged as they stared at the dim floor while his very thoughts slipped away from him. It was like watching lights blink out of existence in a dark, moonless night. Gold tried in vain to keep even one of them, the understanding of who his mother had really been and what she'd tried to do to him, but even that slipped out of his fingers.

Soon, he was staring at the dais, crying, and... not really knowing why.

"You won't even do it for us, will you!? Not even for the creatures you directly created! Whose eggs you put on this planet and- and called us your children- told us we had a purpose- Uxie and Mesprit could be dead somewhere and you don't even care, do you; you just needed us to give our gifts to the humans and after that we were useless to you!" Gold turned to the livid little elf, blinking away tears he couldn't explain, and reached a hand out toward him and the sad little fairy in his arms.

"Wait..." he asked in a small voice, one that didn't sound like his own. "...What happened...?"

"What do you mean, 'What happened'?!" Silver snapped nearby. "Haven't you been fucking listening?!"

Sinjoh Ruins | Late Morning
L-50 / A-73


Everything felt frozen as the world spun into either chaos or disillusion behind him. Anubis couldn't even tell what they were saying anymore, like he was listening to their voices while underwater. There was noise, certainly, but the words muffled together into nothing more than angry sounds with no meaning. This was life now. This was it. Nothing else waited for them beyond suffering and eventually a slow, painful death.

"It doesn't work like that. All it does is open a gateway that allows us to speak to Arceus. We can't make him speak or cross over if he doesn't want to." Lexa was not going to take that lying down, oh no. "The hell it doesn't. I'll go through myself if I have to and I'll drag his punk ass out here to face his own damned mess!"

"What did we do wrong?"

"Nothing," came the bitter retort of the child's apparent guardian. "You did absolutely nothing! None of you deserved any of this! I thought- I thought he must be asleep over on his plane of existence or- there was some other problem!" Nope. Not a problem at all, just God hiding away where he was safe and cozy while he waited for the world to burn out around him. What the hell did he care if everyone died? He made them he could just make more when they were gone. They were all expendable toys to him.

"You won't even do it for us, will you!? Not even for the creatures you directly created! Whose eggs you put on this planet and- and called us your children- told us we had a purpose- Uxie and Mesprit could be dead somewhere and you don't even care, do you; you just needed us to give our gifts to the humans and after that we were useless to you!" Lexa was ready to offer her exact thoughts on that matter but a small, timid voice cut through her anger like a ray of light through fog.

"Wait...What happened...?"

Gold's confused pain stopped Lexa's anger cold as she looked down at the crying human, her instinct to calm him kicking into high gear. But it was not her that went to his side, instead she watched as Anubis came from seemingly nowhere to sit beside the wounded child and lean against him silently while Silver continued to rage. "What do you mean, 'What happened'?! Haven't you been fucking listening?!"

This...this wasn't right. Something wasn't right. Anubis had watched Gold's aura flare to life in a jarring blast of pain and color and then slowly but surely slip away into the gentle hum of muted hues that he had become used to seeing over the last few days. Gold seemed as lost as him at that moment and the Lucario couldn't help but feel drawn to that feeling so he let himself become partner to it, sitting beside the youth and sharing the gentle flow of his own aura to try and soothe the withering one beside him. Gold was no aura reader so likely wouldn't be able to latch on to it but perhaps even still the action could offer some measure of comfort. Nothing else in this world would. Not anymore.

"The hell it doesn't. I'll go through myself if I have to and I'll drag his punk ass out here to face his own damned mess!" Lexa was the first to respond to Guin's sadly hollow answer. The Blaziken was extremely angry, and for a moment Guin wondered if she would lash out and hurt someone. This was alleviated when Gold's now weakened voice seemed to quench the fire type's fierce anger. The dragon noticed that Azelf had floated close to Cynthia for reasons she couldn't fathom, but soon, he was angry again and yelling at the cieling.  

The sheer outpouring of emotion felt like it was happening to someone else in a different room. The words and feelings should have meant something to Cynthia; after all, she had been traveling with these people and Pokemon and dealt with trials along the way. The empty circle of the weeping god was all she could stare at. Her knees grew weak, and it was only thanks to her faithful companion that she didn't collapse to the floor. The Garchomp looped an arm under her shoulders and started murmuring something. She thought she heard her name. Once... Twice...

Maybe it was because of Cynthia's inability to move or react, but the dragon found herself shoving aside the implications and the feelings about those implications. She had to be strong if her trainer couldn't. The fact that Cynthia had nearly collapsed only amplified this. With the anger of the others still going full force, Guin began to vaguely fear if they would take it out on the person who had lead them here only to get their hopes crushed. She was a powerful Pokemon, sure, but the two humans had a lot of Pokemon, and that wasn't even accounting for Azelf whose power made him a god according to some beliefs. Would Cynthia even fight back? Or would it even matter? She slowly started to shift Cynthia into a better position for carrying, but the woman's face never turned from the empty circle that had crushed their hopes.

Azelf was screaming.

Azelf never screamed. Not like this. He had heard screams of joy and play, screams of alarm and fear, but not this. Never this.

The pixie sounded ready to tear something apart. Prince shuddered, struggling to pull himself from the numb haze he'd settled into as everyone's emotions washed over him. Everything felt fuzzy and unreal, like a nightmare, but it felt so horrible he knew he was awake. There was no way he wasn't.

He started to sob quietly, Azelf shifting him in his arms again. He barely registered it, and would not have at all, if not for the fact that he could now bury his face in Azelf's shoulder.

For a few moments all was blurry. A sudden spike in some emotion he couldn't name, though, led him to raising his head.

"Wait...What happened...?" His bloodshot eyes found the owner of the voice; Gold stared at nothing in particular, confusion and pain rolling from him in waves. Anubis walked over to him and leaned against him as Silver's furious voice snapped at him.

"What do you mean, 'What happened'?! Haven't you been fucking listening?!"

"A-Az-?" His own voice sounded strange to him. Azelf darted from Cynthia's side to Gold's, holding the little fairy out so that he could hug the human. Azelf snapped something at Silver, but Prince, though he flinched at the anger in his friend's heart, remained where he was. Gold needed the comfort.

(If there's a problem with him hugging Gold I'll edit.)

The anger of the others, even Lexa, who was such a calm, level head, lent validation to his rage as she insisted on going after Father, herself.

It felt, in that moment, that the burning would never die.

"Wait...What happened...?" Azelf felt Prince's head turn and his did in kind, finding Gold staring with a numb sort of confusion, as if waking from a nightmare. The young Lucario was quick to move to his side and lean against him, but Silver had no such comfort for him.

"What do you mean, 'What happened'?! Haven't you been fucking listening?!" Azelf felt his chest tighten, gritting his teeth.

"A-Az-?" Prince's tiny voice stole all of his attention, momentarily, the pixie glancing at the fairy in his arms. Seeing him reaching out to Gold, he held the little fairy out so that he could hug the human, looking back over to Silver.

"He's in shock, Silver! Have a heart!"

As Gold numbly accepted the tiny fairy's embrace, as well as the Lucario's comfort, with shaking hands. He couldn't remember... it was just gone. There had been something there and then it was completely gone. What had it been? "He's in shock, Silver!" Azelf cried, barely earning Gold's attention. Who was in shock? "Have a heart!"

Silver scoffed at the others beginning to flock around Gold, his buried jealousy of his old rival rising anew. "Please, he'll recover in minutes," Silver snapped. "Nothing fucking phases him for long. Besides, he's not the only fucking person in shock. You see her, right?" He gestured to the silent Champion not far from them. "Whatever. I knew this was a fucking bust. I'm getting the hell out of here. Stay here and weep over your fucking god." Throwing up his hands, he began making his way out. There was nothing for them here, there never had been.

"He's in shock, Silver! Have a heart!"

"Please, he'll recover in minutes," Silver snapped. "Nothing fucking phases him for long. Besides, he's not the only fucking person in shock. You see her, right?" Lexa looked around at everyone in the room before her gaze fell back onto Silver, disappointment coloring her expression. Silver was a strong individual but it seemed that he still didn’t find comfort in being around others. If anything it made him angrier. "Whatever. I knew this was a fucking bust. I'm getting the hell out of here. Stay here and weep over your fucking god."

“Silver wait,” she called after him, moving to follow the angry youth. “I agree that the point of coming here was folly but Silver… You can’t leave him like this. Whatever resentment you harbor to the boy surely it isn’t worth abandoning him when he is nearly catatonic? When I found Anubis he was in very much the same state and look at him now, barely functional except when in a fight. Please. Don’t choose to be alone when there are those who want and need you with them.”

They were still angry. Even though they seemed to congregate around Gold, Guin couldn't help but wonder how long it would be before they would snap. It would be easy to blame the poor boy's current mental state on their failed endeavor. The Garchomp fully turned her attention to her trainer as she tried to get the blonde into a position she could carry her in. Cynthia was painfully easy to shift around.

Before Guinevere could properly pick her up, Cynthia finally did something of her own will. She grabbed the fallen Azure Flute and clung it close to her chest. Guin wasn't sure why Cynthia even wanted the damn thing anymore, but she wasn't going to argue with Cynthia over it. Not right now anyway. Regardless, Guinevere scooped the tall blonde into her arms, and, before anyone could stop her, the dragon ran. For a second, Guin thought she could feel Cynthia struggle, but whatever fight Cynthia would normally have was gone. I'm sorry...

The sunlit snow nearly blinded Guinevere when she exited the ruins, but she kept running as fast as her legs would allow. Which, considering she was a Garchomp, was a fairly high speed. Careful to ensure Cynthia wasn't in the way, she breathed fire again down the stone steps to ensure there wasn't any ice. Even the snow didn't stop her as she reached flat ground.

"Please, he'll recover in minutes." Silver's emotions were impossible to pick out, precicely. His kind couldn't generally pick out who was putting out what emotion-- though he'd heard rumors of the fully-grown, especially powerful ones being able to. But for him, everyone's had melded together. If Silver felt any despair, Prince wasn't able to discern it, for it was lost among everyone else's despair.

He didn't have to be an empath, however, to know the young man was angry. His words sent Prince clinging tighter to Gold, as if the youth was capable of protecting anyone in this state. "Nothing fucking phases him for long. Besides, he's not the only fucking person in shock. You see her, right?"

Her? Prince peeked up and glanced about; the only other 'her' in the room, currently, was Lexa, and as he snuck peeks around the room, it became apparent that she wasn't the one he was talking about. No, Cynthia stood like a statue. He had only moments to let that sink in before Silver spoke again. "Whatever. I knew this was a fucking bust. I'm getting the hell out of here. Stay here and weep over your fucking god."

“Silver wait,” Lexa got up to follow him. Still overwhelmed by all the pain, Prince turned from looking at them to huddling against Gold. Though he didn't want to pay attention, them being so close made it impossible to avoid overhearing everything. “I agree that the point of coming here was folly but Silver… You can’t leave him like this. Whatever resentment you harbor to the boy surely it isn’t worth abandoning him when he is nearly catatonic? When I found Anubis he was in very much the same state and look at him now, barely functional except when in a fight. Please. Don’t choose to be alone when there are those who want and need you with them.”

There was no way he had the strength to interject into their talk.

"Gold?" Prince whispered, removing his face from Gold's shoulder yet again to look up at him. "Are...?"

He let the sentence trail off. The automatic question ("Are you okay?") was pointless to ask. Of course he wasn't. Nothing was.

God doesn't want us...

He expected to be sobbing right now. He ought to be. Azelf wasn't sobbing, but he was crying. Shouldn't he be crying, too?

Nothing felt real, though. It was all foggy, like a nightmare. He tried to wrap his mind around the concept of a god existing, yet not trying to help them. Not even bothering to speak to them. It was too surreal. Sure, he had believed in the Legends. And Arceus. Azelf had made them more people-like. No longer were they creatures of unimagiable power; they were emotional, needed food and water and sleep. Capable of playfulness and curiosity and fear. Was Arceus just upset because, like Prince once had with Azelf, he had overestimated the god's power and Arceus truly was helpless to stop any of this?

But then why not at least tell them that? What was going on?

He settled into a numb haze, still clinging to Gold, his thoughts fading out as the words everyone around him once again blurred into white noise.

That was when a different sort of chaos erupted. Though he missed what happened, he heard the sound of a cry of surprise, all other reactions lost on him as he snapped his head over to stare at Azelf; the pixie was floating there as if unsure of reality, staring dumbly at the entrance to the chamber. Now Prince's mind was forced to contemplate yet another question he was in no real state to try processing: what just happened now?

"Please, he'll recover in minutes," the young man snapped, Azelf feeling his ire rise as Silver continued to disregard any of whatever Gold was feeling at the moment. "Nothing fucking phases him for long. Besides, he's not the only fucking person in shock. You see her, right?"

Golden eyes moved without turning his head to look at Cynthia, though he had noticed her a second prior. "Of course," he snapped back, "But-"

"Whatever. I knew this was a fucking bust. I'm getting the hell out of here. Stay here and weep over your fucking god."

Seldom had Azelf ever been so angry, but thankfully, there was someone else in the room who was being more rational than he, and even better, she acted first. “Silver wait,” the firebird called, moving to catch up with him. Aware enough of the situation even in his anger that joining her would be a bad idea, Azelf instead chose to return his attention to his young charge and the shellshocked human Prince was clinging to, floating down to place a little hand on Gold's shoulder as the other scrubbed fruitlessly at his eyes.

He blocked out the rest of Lexa's words, murmuring soft questions to Gold- do you know where we are? Do you know what just happened? Can you focus on me? Azelf was hardly a medic, but Prince once told him that he'd seen humans do that, before; they would ask gentle questions of others who seemed to be struggling with comprehending reality. Usually this was in conjunction to being hit on the head with something, but given the blank look in Gold's eyes, Azelf hoped it would help even in this case, where the damage was more mental and emotional than physical. Gold really did look like he had it bad.

"Gold?" Azelf turned his attention to Prince. "Are...?"

Azelf bit his lip when the boy gave up on the question and slumped. Well... he couldn't blame him. There was so little that could be said. It was taking everything in the legend to be quiet, to not weep openly. Gold was upset, and Prince had been fragile beforehand. He wasn't sure what was going on in the fairy's mind--there was no way he could be taking this better than Gold, he knew that--but the time would come when he would have his own meltdown. Azelf didn't know how soon that would be. It wouldn't do for himself to be a mess when the storm hit.

Giving up for the moment on talking to Gold, given that it wasn't fair to make him talk when he didn't seem capable of holding much of a conversation, he looked over at Silver and Lexa, wondering with a dull sort of exhaustion if Lexa had spoken sense into the redhead.

But as his eyes sought them out, he found something other than what he was looking for. As if his Father was testing the boundaries of what his broken heart could withstand in a day, Guinivere scooped Cynthia up and bolted.

"W-Wha- wait!" he cried out, bobbing up a foot above Gold and staring where they disappeared in pure, incomprehensible shock.

“Silver wait,” The named youth heaved an incredibly audible sigh and turned, perturbed, but willing to hear the Blaziken out... for the moment. Past her, he could see Gold slowly coming back to reality, causing his already sour frown to deepen. “I agree that the point of coming here was folly but Silver… You can’t leave him like this. Whatever resentment you harbor to the boy surely it isn’t worth abandoning him when he is nearly catatonic?"

She would have had no idea how wrong she was, what their past together had been. How Gold was. How he himself was. She'd only had a small, insignificant taste and therefore Silver already knew her point was moot. To remain even the slightest bit civil, Silver refrained from spitting at her feet despite his overwhelming urge. One particular word stuck out at him and he bristled at her. "When I found Anubis he was in very much the same state and look at him now, barely functional except when in a fight. Please. Don’t choose to be alone when there are those who want and need you with them.”

"'Abandoning him'?" Silver carefully began, his cold fury whirling in his mind and aura. "What makes you think I was traveling with him in the first place? We happened to be going together, to the same destination, for a short time. I'm just going back on my merry fucking way. Besides, don't stand there and preach to me that he needs me. He doesn't. He never, ever has and it won't start now."

As Silver's conversation was happening, Gold was slowly coming to, his face relaxing into a confused stupor. "Gold?" The tiny little voice somehow reached him over Silver's vitriol, and he looked down at Prince with wide eyes. "Are...?"

He knew there was moisture on his cheeks and in his eyes, his nose was running, but... why? Using a free hand, Gold wiped away some of the stray tears and cleared his throat. "...This... might be a weird question, but uh... do you know why I was crying?" He let out a small laugh to cover his embarrassment, but it was cut off very quickly as Cynthia's Garchomp picked her up and just... left.

She just...?

With Gold miraculously recovered and Cynthia noped right the fuck out, Silver watched them go with resignation. "Right." Shrugging his coat closer to his body and his collar popped against the wind outside, he glanced back to Lexa and Gold beyond her. "See? He's fine. I'm not needed." With that, he pushed himself out, back into the wretched cold, alone. Like he always was.

Like he was meant to be.

((Silver is now out of the team, but Gold remains.))

"'Abandoning him'?" Lexa sighed as Silver began his rant, already predicting how it would turn out. There would be no bringing him back from this edge. He would leave. "What makes you think I was traveling with him in the first place? We happened to be going together, to the same destination, for a short time. I'm just going back on my merry fucking way. Besides, don't stand there and preach to me that he needs me. He doesn't. He never, ever has and it won't start now."

"Just because someone doesn't show their pain doesn't mean it isn’t there..." But it was too late. Silver was already turning away even as Gold started to come around.  "...This... might be a weird question, but uh... do you know why I was crying?"

Anubis uncurled from Gold and looked at him carefully, the aura around the human now soft and incredibly basic. He was worried about it but didn't understand why it had happened so he simply settled back into his position against Gold's side and let out a small sigh. He didn't know why Gold was crying but hopefully they helped.

The confusion and frustration only continued to spiral as Cynthia's Garchomp simply picked her up and ram without a word to anyone. "Wait-!" Yet her words were too late and simply broken the awkward silence everyone had settled in. "Right."

"See? He's fine. I'm not needed." And now Silver was gone. Everyone just left them there, in a strange place with no idea what to do or where to go. They were just...lost.

...This... might be a weird question, but uh... do you know why I was crying?

So shocked he was by Cynthia's flight (or, more accurately, Guinivere's) that he hadn't had time to really let Gold's question sink in. But as others around him reacted to her departure, he remained silent, Gold's question rattling around in his head.

...This... might be a weird question, but uh... do you know why I was crying?

Why wouldn't he know that? Prince watched as Silver left. Now their group was down to five. Three of whom were just lost children. Or at least lost.

Lost. That was the perfect word. Anubis was radiating the same emotions, radio waves of helplessness. Desperate for guidance, he turned exhausted eyes on Azelf, who was still floating where he had moved as he called out for Cynthia to return.

What do we do?

"Wait-!" He wasn't the only one who cried out, but Lexa's plea was about as well heeded as his own.

"Right." Snapped out of his shock at Cynthia leaving so suddenly, he stared in mute horror at Silver as the young man took one last look inside. "See? He's fine. I'm not needed."

And then he, too, was gone. Five, the pixie realized, lead settling in his stomach. We are down to five.

Turning slowly back to who remained, he found Prince staring at him. His little friend wanted answers. A direction. Something.

After a moment, he spoke, his voice hoarser than he wished it was. "You asked a question. What was it?"

"He wanted to know why he was crying," muttered Prince. Azelf blinked. Did... did Gold really not remember?

New worry arose. Did that light have an averse affect on some humans? Or even just people in general? But there was no time to seriously contemplate such things. They were far up into mountains. It was cold. This place sheltered them from the wind, but it would not be long before that would be enough to sustain them. They should leave this place as soon as they could.

"... Let's... let's leave before we have that conversation," he decided, his words slow as he chose them carefully. He didn't want Gold to think he was patronizing him. "It would likely be a long one, and I don't think we should linger here any longer. Let's get back to the start of Alph Ruins before we talk about... any of what just happened. Or at least back into the shelter of the Alph Ruins itself, where it wasn't so cold."

As he spoke he gained more resolve. Right now, what just happened wasn't important. Getting out of here was. There would be time later to chew on what happened and be upset.

Sinjoh Ruins||Late Morning


Gold was surprised to see Silver just leave; wouldn't he be cold without everyone else? Where was he even going? He stood, holding the little psychic fairy in his arms, dumbfounded as to why everyone was leaving on their own. They came as a group, why was this happening? What was tearing the group apart so easily...?

Azelf addressing him was a little surprising, especially since it "You asked a question. What was it?"

"He wanted to know why he was crying," Prince answered before he could himself, giving Gold some more reason to worry.

Azelf seemed to take a moment before actually replying. Was this bad? "... Let's... let's leave before we have that conversation. It would likely be a long one, and I don't think we should linger here any longer. Let's get back to the start of Alph Ruins before we talk about... any of what just happened. Or at least back into the shelter of the Alph Ruins itself, where it wasn't so cold."

"That's fine!" Gold chimed happily, pulling his jacket tighter around Prince to keep him warm. "We still have Lexa and Bitey. They'll keep us warm enough to get back to that cabin and then from there we can rest up again and get back into the ruins. Easy peasy!" His usual optimism beamed from him as he grinned at Azelf. "It'll be ok, guys. We got this!"

It was strange seeing their numbers drop by nearly half just from the loss of two humans and their Pokemon. Lexa felt that hollow feeling in her chest slowly solidifying into a permanent gap and swallowed hard to try and ignore it. It wouldn't do for her to grow numb now when others needed her to be strong. With so many of them falling apart at the seams someone needed to form a rock for them to anchor to and it was a role she was familiar with. She couldn't lose herself.

"You asked a question. What was it?" Azelf's voice brought Lexa back to the small remaining group and she moved closer to them, offering what warmth and comfort she could as they tried to collect themselves. "He wanted to know why he was crying." Anubis nodded at the small fairy's response and looked back over to Gold, frowning as that dull aura remained stagnant. Poor Gold...

"... Let's... let's leave before we have that conversation. It would likely be a long one, and I don't think we should linger here any longer. Let's get back to the start of Alph Ruins before we talk about... any of what just happened. Or at least back into the shelter of the Alph Ruins itself, where it wasn't so cold."

"Good idea," Lexa agreed, offering her taloned hand to Anubis to help him up. "I remember the way we came if anyone else can't, but I agree the shelter sounds like the best idea right now."

"That's fine!" Gold replied with his usual beaming smile causing Anubis to flinch. It was genuine but it wasn't...real. Not really. Something in Gold was missing and now that Anubis had seen what his aura could truly be this muted version only made him upset. "We still have Lexa and Bitey. They'll keep us warm enough to get back to that cabin and then from there we can rest up again and get back into the ruins. Easy peasy!" How could he just lock away a part of himself like that? "It'll be ok, guys. We got this!"

"No... We don't..." Anubis replied, gaze finally shifting from Gold to the now empty stage. "But...neither do we have a choice. I just want to go home..." Lexa gently pulled Anubis to her and held him to her side. "We'll go home one day, but for now we have to go one day at a time. Come on kids, let's get out of this depressing cave."

"... Let's... let's leave before we have that conversation," Azelf cautioned. "It would likely be a long one, and I don't think we should linger here any longer. Let's get back to the start of Alph Ruins before we talk about... any of what just happened. Or at least back into the shelter of the Alph Ruins itself, where it wasn't so cold."

"Good idea," Lexa agreed. Gently, she went to help Anubis up. "I remember the way we came if anyone else can't, but I agree the shelter sounds like the best idea right now."

"That's fine!" Prince looked up at Gold, eyes wide. His emotions were... stablizing. Nearly back to normal. There was the unmistakable sunshine in what he was feeling, just like before. Unrestrained optiminism. "We still have Lexa and Bitey. They'll keep us warm enough to get back to that cabin and then from there we can rest up again and get back into the ruins. Easy peasy!"

Prince's shock didn't waver. How was he okay so fast?

"It'll be ok, guys. We got this!"

"No... We don't..." The little fairy winced at the sheer despair in that voice, wilting against Gold. "But...neither do we have a choice. I just want to go home..."

The Blaziken carefully pulled the young canine close to her. "We'll go home one day, but for now we have to go one day at a time. Come on kids, let's get out of this depressing cave."

"Wh-where...? Where will we g-go...?" He looked over at Azelf. Seriously, where did they go from here?

oh, ms. believer
my pretty sleeper
your twisted mind
is like snow on the road
your shaking shoulders
prove that it's colder
inside your head
than the winter of dead
