teeter-dance

So on New Year’s Eve my brother challenged me to a triple rotation battle in ORAS. Now I had only just gotten the game on Christmas so I wasn’t anywhere close to beating the game and my pokemon were seriously under leveled. However since the pokemon are just automatically bumped to lvl 50 for the battle I figured, eh why not?

HOWEVER my brother decides to pull a dick move and has his entire party be NOTHING BUT FULLY TRAINED LEGENDARY POKEMON. TWO OF WHICH WERE PRIMAL GROUDON AND MEGA RAYQUAZA.

His legendary team completely destroyed my first 5 pokemon.

I was down to my very last pokemon, a Lombre I had named Skip.

I decided I was gonna lose anyway, but I wasn’t gonna go down without a fight.

So I used Teeter Dance, which is a move that confuses the opponent’s pokemon. Doesn’t do any damage tho.

LITERALLY EVERY SINGLE POKEMON HE HAD KILLED ITSELF. NOT A ONE ACTUALLY ATTACKED SKIP.

I WON THE BATTLE.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN I GIVE YOU

SKIP THE SLAYER OF LEGENDS

Domestic // Part 2

Part 2: Early Parenthood

A/N: This is mad late but it’s finally here! You and Tom become new parents and things are (mostly) going strong.

(also, I’ve written this family as a mixed family, which is mostly personal to me, but for any of you poc Tom Holland fans, I hope this resonates with you too. You’re wonderful and beautiful, and you deserve to have a family with Tom just as much as anyone else.)

It smells of pancakes when you blink your eyes awake, which is something you’re still not used to. Cooking was an affair you did in your house—as the saying goes if you want something done, you have to do it yourself.

It was surprising, then, to hear laughter coming from downstairs and the pungent smell of oranges so early in the morning. You, ever the skeptic, tossed on a robe and attempted to fix your bedhead as you made the treacherous trek down a flight of stairs with blurry morning vision.

The giggles you were hearing were small and high pitched, and it struck you for a moment how joyful they sounded. Rubbing at your eyes, you were finally able to take in the sight that you greeted so often, but could never seem to process.

Mamihlapinatapei - The look between two people in which each loves the other but is too afraid to make the first move.  // requested by @perfectpunctuation and @nsamori

          ROBIN’S BRIDAL dress looked nothing like the green one from Vashti; yet both suited her, enhanced her. And Strike didn’t think twice about gazing at her throughout the reception. She was the bride, wasn’t she? The center of attention. The convergence of stares and looks. Every now and then, their eyes would meet across the room, a fluctuating mass of bodies in between them, and they would smile. Not a word was exchanged, her duties preventing her from lingering too long with one person, from having too prolonged a conversation, and Strike busied himself with wine and food and the occasional and perfunctory small talks weddings were wont to require.

“Dance with me.” Behind him, Robin’s voice pulled him away from a rather bothersome discussion with an elderly man intent on telling him all about the war he’d been in after learning that Strike himself was a veteran.

He turned around and smiled again, his gaze falling on her. Denying her wouldn’t do. Not on that day. Should he tell her that ballroom dances weren’t something his body was made for? A push on his good leg, a hand grazing her waist to snake his arm around it, and they were both carving their way amidst the couples already moving on the floorboards. Don’t let me slip, he mentally prayed.His grip on her tightened, bringing her flush against his chest.

“I don’t know how to do this,” he whispered in her ear.
Against the side of his face, he could feel her smile.
“You’ll be fine.”
Over the collar of his shirt, he could feel her hand, her fingers idly playing with the starched fabric. He smiled.

They moved, feet learning how to take steps, legs bending and stretching in clumsy unison until they reached a more harmonious motion. Strike didn’t need to look down at her, Robin’s height and heels bringing her face before his own. Neither of them spoke, content to listen to the music and attune the movements of their joined bodies to it, notes and melody the only words and conversation they needed. Robin was gazing about her, oblivious - either willingly or unwillingly - to Strike’s eyes caressing the slope of her shoulder snug in delicate lace, the outline of her face, the curve of her throat. The brush of his fingers wrapped about her own the only skin to skin contact they experienced.

At some point during the song, she looked upwards and found his eyes. The ghost of a smile on his lips barely faltered then, his palm pressing her closer yet - and Strike wondered if she could feel the buttons of his shirt through her dress. The grey-blue of her eyes rendered their surroundings nonexistent, drowned the sounds of music and laughters and voices, annihilated the world in which she was now a wife. They watched each other, attuned to the other’s body and, he could have sworn it then, attuned to the other’s thoughts. Still, they remained silent. Strike realised that he’d never held her this close - or for this long. It felt familiar, it felt right. A breath, hers, was quietly sucked when his lips parted. He missed a step, his mind reeling at it teetered. When they resumed dancing, both mouths were sealed.What transpired in their locked gazes, what suffused their eyes, was never shaped into syllables, never given a life through the spoken word. Would regrets be born in that very moment? Or would they find themselves grateful for preserving what had been shared?

in case anyone was wondering, this is my Pokemon Mystery Dungeon OC! Her name is Sparky and she absolutely loves Pecha Berries. Her moveset is Teeter Dance, Dizzy Punch, Shock Wave and Shadow Ball. She leads a team called the Rara Avis (at one point her teammates are an Espeon named Epsilon and a Persian named Felicity, now she’s currently solo as I’m deciding her new teammates). Her maim held item is a Sky Blue Bow, and she wears it around her head like a bandanna. I’ll be writing a story on ao3 about her, and I’ll post the link when I do!

the lovely art was done by the very talented @pachikun! Give them a follow and a polite greeting, please! Please don’t steal the art or the character.

New Pokemon Focus:Oricorio

Professor Huffmagic here with a look at some new pokemon for Sun and Moon

Today Pokemon  dropped a huge trailer on us, with so much newness it is going to take a bunch of posts to get through it all!

We are going to start today with one of the more interesting new Mons, but one that was overshadowed by all the amazing newness that Pokemon had in store.

Oricorio

Oricorio changes its form by sipping the nectar of certain flowers. Since it has four different forms—the same as the number of islands in Alola—it would seem that different Oricorio live on each of the islands.

Oricorio is a “Dancing Pokemon” with a new ability “Dancer” that will mimic effects of any dance move done in battle. That means that the nine “dance” moves can be used in doubles to turn this little dancer into a monster. The nine dance moves are: Dragon Dance, Feather Dance, Fiery Dance, Lunar Dance, Petal Dance, Quiver Dance, Rain Dance, Swords Dance, and Teeter Dance.

Now Oricorio is a unique mon in that it begins with four different forms, each ecountered on one of Alola’s islands. The hint at Darwin’s Finchs is beautiful. Each one is based off of a different style of dance, taken from cultures around the world.

Revelation Dance is a move that only Oricorio can learn, and its type changes based on Oricorio’s current style.

Baile Style

Fire/Flying

The Baile Style Oricorio is very passionate, and power fills its body when it dances. It sends downy fluff flying during its intense dances. By igniting this fluff, it can unleash a fiery dance attack.

This form is based off of the Spanish Flamenco Dancer, Baile literally being the form of Flamenco that focuses on Dance. Flamenco is a dance form that tends to be most appreciated when performed solo, and is often improvisational. (interesting note: Flamenco is highly popular in Japan, with more schools focused on it than in Spain)

The fire typing is probably due to the root of the word Flamenco, and they style itself being very fiery and passionate.

Pom-Pom Style

Electric/Flying

The Pom-Pom Style Oricorio is very friendly toward people, and it uses dancing to encourage Trainers who are feeling glum. When it dances, its feathers are charged with static electricity. It can attack with these charged feathers, and sometimes it unleashes a powerful electric shock.

Now this little zapper is probably based off of cheerleading squads and dance teams. Mostly used in sporting events to cheer on the team or crowd, there is also a highly competitive world of “cheer” that is its own form of sport and dance. A pom-pom is a poofy, often shiny, cluster of tightly woven streamers that can be held while dancing to guide or attract the eyes.

The electric typing is probably due to the energy that cheerleaders can build up.

Sensu Style

Ghost/Flying

The Sensu Style Oricorio is quiet and collected. By means of its dance, it gathers the spirits drifting about in an area and borrows their power to fight. People who migrated from Kanto feel a great liking for this Pokémon because its dance reminds them of their homeland.

Now the reason it reminds people of Kanto ( Japan ) of their homeland is that this bird is based off of the tradition of dancing with a fan in Japan. Sensu translates to “folding fan” and has been a tool incorporated into dance in Japan for centuries. Folding Fans are often given as signs of goodwill and cheer.

The ghost typing is probably due to the style in Japanese traditional dancing called Bon Odori, which was a dance to welcome the spirits. 

Pa’u Style

Psychic/Flying

The Pa’u Style Oricorio acts at its own pace, which sometimes makes it difficult to deal with. It sharpens its spirited moves through dance, which increases its psychic power. It’s said that this dance expresses its gratitude to the guardian deity Pokémon.

The Pa’u style is based off of Hawaiian Hula dancers. Pa’u is the style of skirt worn by Hula dancers, and the style and weave of the skirt has deep meaning to add to the dance. Hula is a sacred dance that goes deeply back into the history of Hawaii, with some legends saying that those were the movements of the gods after creating the world.

The psychic typing is probably due to Pokemon associating all “godlike” things to psychic-typing.

So what do you thin of the new little bird friends? Like them? Hate them? Which is your favorite?

Well that’s it for this post trainers, thanks for taking the time, I hope you enjoyed it. Feel free to message me with any comments or questions, and please submit any awesome poke-stuff you find. Stay safe out there guys, and remember, there is a time and a place for everything!

In the beginning it was only darkness, stretched eons. No concept of day, only night.

Darkness which subdues both men and gods. Mist that hangs and drapes around the earth. There is something sacred in its midnight grasp; tight, clawing, and suffocating.

We are born in darkness, dancing, teetering on Chaos.

We create light. It falls from our hands, warm, with fingers that gently brush across the sky.

Heaven belongs to the light, a gift giver. Ephemeral, stealing away, as though it could ever outrun the first truth;

That the light always yields to the dark. Though it does put up a good fight. It follows. It persists. It endures.

- L.H.Z //  we started in darkness, but the light always finds a way to get in

Dance son! Dance the Teeter Dance!
Team
  • Sardonyx the Golem
  • Varnish the Nuzleaf
  • Barbie the Cosplay Pikachu
  • Sanderson the Combusken
  • Cupcake the Linoone
  • Salty the Pelipper

Having defeated Flannery, we quickly met up with May right outside the gym. I like to think that May is supposed to represent the normal mindset of the average trainer, serving as a foil to juxtapose against the abnomaly that is the protagonist. We silently go from being a complete scrub to smash evil empires and having gods at our beck and call in like…what? A couple months? A year? There’s prodigy and then there’s being a walking plot device.

Anyways, I picked up the desert goggles from May and turned down her offer to speed travel to Petalburg. I still had some things to do before facing my ole man. I went to the desert on Route 111 to pick up two new friends, finished exploring the Fiery Path and dropped by Rustboro to revive one of said two new friends.

I do have to give Petalburg Gym its props, this is probably the hardest fight the team has had to date. Mind, that’s because I didn’t really use Sardonyx until Norman, since all his warm up trainers only had one Pokemon each. They definitely did some damage and Norman’s Vigoroth nearly offed Barbie with a single Retaliate. Rest of the team, except Sardonyx, also got a little busted up.

Five badges down, three left to go.
