Wow, The Separate Fists certainly had some seriously tough Pokémon and put up quite the fight. o.o And I was glad to see them lose to coordinators given their attitude about coordinators. That's what they get for assuming that coordinating is just "the pussy-way out of real training". X3
They sent out some pretty cool Pokémon, too. I enjoyed seeing Furnisur's final evolutionary stage in action. Centil sounds very wicked-looking; I love it. Flanake was neat, too--fwee for Virtual-types! ^^
And I hadn't expected for Fara to be Kikyora's sister. o.o That was certainly an interesting surprise.
Heh, this part was cute. ^^The next day was calm and the stream of sunlight pouring through the cracks in the shades was the only alarm clock May needed. She awoke, stretching and yawning. She had slept well despite the fact it had been on a hard wood floor in a sleeping bag. Drew was still asleep next to her, his back facing her in a way that May could not resist. Grabbing his side lightly, she swayed him back and forth in a gentle way, as to not startle him awake. But it didn’t work. He was a rock of his former self and the gentle swaying went unnoticed. May sighed. If they spent the rest of their lives together, this would be one of the things she enjoyed the most (and of course, the thing Drew resented the most). She grabbed his side harder this time, and rolled him onto his stomach.
XD“C’mon, May, toughen up. That Scizor could have definitely taken your arm off,” Drew teased, seeing that she was better and ripe for teasing.
She narrowed her eyes at him with an upside-down smirk. “Too bad it didn’t take your arm!” she back-lashed at him playfully.
OH. And I must comment on that pic of Serpell that you posted--that was really cool. I love the way the yellow markings look against the sort of beige color of the creature. ^^
