    Default Et Tu, Poké? (1x1; BullfinchxMe)

    (Same plot, same timeline; 3 days to the turning point. As far as people go, I'll take Will, and have Isaac there as a lesser character. Sound good?)

    (Sounds good to me. I'll take Finch and have Bertrand as a background char for the most part. c: Would you like to start?)

    "Beee, bee bee beee, beeee~!"
    "Beeeee!! Combee combeeeeee!!"
    "Wiggy, wigglytuff!"
    "Hehehehe....Bui."

    Opening the door to Professor Lenwes's lab, Will was met with the usual scene that typically dominated the facility: chaos. Min and Rin were busy chasing one another in one of their usual bickering matches, both Combee fully intent on having their way as Marge hurried along, scolding after them, being sure to catch anything they ended up knocking over or scattering. Lenroy just shook his head, an amused look on his face as he watched from afar, silently plotting how many kinds of traps he could set up for whoever unfortunate enough to step into them did so, since Marge took down his last ones. Naturally, the professor was nowhere to be found, his usual workstations abandoned or knocked about by a pair of rather excitable Combee tearing through the lab, the pleasant scent of Sweet Scent filling the air and overpowering the usual air fresheners and ointments of his work. THat was weird...he sounded so eager over the phone. He said he had something huge to show him, said to come over right away, and abruptly hung up. True, both he and his friend Finch were regulars around the lab and usually helped out when Jimmy wasn't here--which he wasn't, at the moment--but wasn't it only natural to be here when he went to all the trouble of calling them down? And where was Finch, anyway?
    Kat gave a little mew and watched the Combee tear about the lab, watching them eagerly, little hand-like tail wagging in anticipation, her kitten-like need to chase moving objects no doubt coming into play. He held her snugly, though, scratching her behind her ears. Bugsy let out a noise from the sling he'd made for her on his back, letting out a droning sound of distaste at the commotion. She usually liked it quiet, and he couldn't blame her; this place was chaos. Determining the professor had gotten distracted with something--it wouldn't be the first time--Will just sighed and shook his head, backing up through the door again and waiting for Finch to arrive. If he called him down, no doubt he called her as well.

    Many things in life were what Finch liked to call 'interrupters'. They interrupted everything you needed to do, and replaced it with something you wanted to do - which came in handy very few times. One of these things was the prospect of being able to get out of the house and to one of the only places where she wasn't ridiculed for being a half-blood; and thus, telephones and calls from Professor Lenwes proclaiming he had something enormous to show her were definitely on her list of 'interrupters'. Grabbing her sash and knife, she raced out of the small farmhouse she called home, shouting a short "I'm going out!" behind her.

    A few minutes later, she skidded to a stop outside of the lab, breathing hard but grinning wildly. She grabbed Khepri's and Nun's Pokeballs from her sash, flipping them into the air like coins before they both opened slightly, releasing the two Pokémon with twin flashes of blue-white light. She caught them with trained ease, slipping them back into the holder loops and practically prancing towards her personal sanctuary, Nun and Khepri rushing after her. With a start, she recognized the form of Will hovering outside the door, and practically pranced up to him, giving him a small friendly wave. "Hey, Will! I see the Professor called you too?"

    At this point, Kat let out a gleeful "Tee!" and began squirming, hence why Will let go of her and allowed her comforting fluff slip away, now dashing around in excited circles around both Khepri and Nun with kitten-like giddiness...acceptable, considering she was the "Kitten" pokemon.
    With his arms free and feeling a bit naked without a pokemon to hug to his chest, Will slipped Bugsy off his back and cradled her up against him, unable to restrain a little grin from the light "purring" she emanated from being held. He was appalled when people shied away because she was a Kakuna; she was a little lovebug that loved to be held! So what if she was related to the killer bees the size of men? She was just a litte thing. Completely harmless. ALl she wanted was a little love...which he was happy to offer.
    "Uh-huh," Will replied to Finch, waving in return, arms still clapsed firmly around Bugsy's goldenrod, unyielding exoskeleton, red eye orbs glimmering with contentment. "Just the usual 'get over here as fast as you can!' things, though...didn't say what. And," he motioned to the window in time to see a pair of Combee rush by, a frantic and indignant Wigglytuff running damage control right behind them, "of course he's not there yet." "Fashionably late" was the professor's specialty. Will didn't mind, though; he was nice, really smart, and lots of fun, if not a bit weird. If he said it was big, it was either really big, or something so tedious that it would bore them both to tears yet absolutely make his day. It wouldn't be the first time for that, either. Oh well; at least he got a nice walk with Kat and Bugsy out of it, if nothing else.

    Khepri responded with a loud exclamation of "Rio! Riolu!" as he grinned slightly at Kat, tail wagging with excitement. Nun smiled faintly, with a look almost like a parents' in his eyes, a mix of pride and happiness. Finch let out a bark of laughter, violet eyes bright with amusement. "Of course he's not here yet. What would the world be coming too if he was?" She stated quizzically, before turning her gaze to the Beedrill wrapped in Will's arms. "So, how've you and the family been?" A grin twitched at her lips when she reached the word family; she always referred to the personal picks of trainers, breeders and owners as family - after all, flock was taken.
    Nun thumped his tail on the ground as Khepri readied himself to tackle Kat, making the smaller Riolu freeze in his motion. He looked over his thin shoulder sheepishly, short dreadlocks shifting with the motion. Nun tilted his head, wearing as stern an expression he could when dealing with his eccentric fellow Pokémon.

    Heehee, good old Nun. Kat beamed, sticking her tongue out at the little Riolu before prancing about in circles around her blue companion, tail aimed at the sky, chest puffed as she strutted about, as if Nun had somehow deemed her superior. It was all in the name of getting Kehpri annoyed and evoke said tackle, of course. She wanted to play!
    Will absently stroked the side of Bugsy's head, evoking a warm purr from the little Kakuna. "Same as usual: hyper and bubbly and completely insane." Bugsy let out a harsh drone, sounding slightly synthetic from whatever was altering her noise-maker in that shell of hers. "I meant Kat," he explained to her, which seemed to satisfy her, resuming her purring. He was always glad to have Finch as company; she was really nice, plus one of the only people that didn't pick on him for being albino. They always said his white hair made him look old, his skin made him seem dead, and his eyes seem evil; the combination of that and his usual wearing of dark, covering clothes made him seem slightly like a vampire, hence his nickname "Vamp" or "Dracula." Not Finch, though. She was cool like that. He understood that she might know what it was like--being a "half-breed" around here seemed to be, like, taboo or something. He didn't get it. Who cared where you were from? It helped affect who you were, but it didn't define you as a person. Who would think like that but a bunch of bullies? Close-minded assholes... "How's the family with you? T-the pokemon, I mean." She didn't usually like talking about her family...probably because of all the harrassment she got for it. Too bad...Will thought it would be interesting to talk about Egyptian things. What were the pokemon like there? Was it true they worshipped Shinx in the old days? So interesting...

    Khepri glared at the kitten, fur standing up in annoyance and deflated bravado. Forgetting for a moment of the existence of the giant Croconaw behind him, the Riolu leapt, targeting the Skitty with all of his attention. Nun made a startled noise in the back of his throat from behind them, eyes widening in alarm and blue scales scraping against each other as his muscles tightened in case of needed split-second action.
    Finch hid a giggle behind a pale hand at Bugsy's reaction, short brown hair getting caught in her eyelashes, although she didn't bother to hide her grin. Aw, Bugsy can be bubbly too. Violet eyes roved over the scene, taking in Will's appearance. Well, he didn't look too bad - that was good. Damn bullies, always picking on her only true friend. If they changed their targets he could get some use out of her swordsmanship skills... his question pierced through her thoughts, and her grin regained more of its brightness. "They're great. I think Osiris is finally getting used to being around others, he didn't snap half as bad this past week. Didn't want to bring him out here, though, wouldn't want him to eat those poor Combees," she said teasingly, winking at Will with a cheeky smirk and dimples in her cheeks.

    Getting what she asked for, Kat did a little twirl with a giggling "Kit!" as she turned, stuck her tail out, and promptly caught Kehpri's face, holding him away with her long hand-like tail, pressing against his forehead to counter his advance. Ah, the joys of having a tail longer than a Riolu's arms~!
    "Oh, a tragedy that would be," Will responded, rolling his eyes in time to catch a yellow blur buzz by the window again, followed by a pink one. Where did all their energy come from?! "Oh yeah..." He looked back at Finch, pausing a moment to get a brief moment of admiration in for those awesome purple eyes. He tried wearing contacts once to color them like that, but his eyes were too sensitive; they were like magnifying glasses into his already hopelessly fragile corneas. Stupid albinoism... "Did you hear about that one bug going around?" He forgot the name exactly, but it was really far-reaching; pokemon everywhere from Kanto to Orre were breaking out into some really bad headaches. Some of them got violent as a result; there was a person in Johto that got maimed by her own Houndoom for almost no reason. It just...snapped. They had to uthenize the poor thing. He unconsciously hugged Bugsy a bit more; poor pokemon getting sick...he sure hoped none of theirs caught it. Maybe that's what the professor wanted to talk about?

    Khepri's forehead connected with Kat's tail with a dull thunk, and he growled in embarrassment and anger, digging his feet into the ground with his efforts to push past the Skitty's tail. Nun relaxed, sitting back with a tiny smirk on his face and low coughs of laughter escaping him.
    Finch chuckled, tucking her hair behind an ear and nodding slightly in agreement. She felt a small blossom of warmth in her chest when his eyes stuck on hers, devoid of the usual judgment and disgust that usually graced those that looked at her. Her smile flickered into a contemplative frown at his next question, and she fiddled with her necklace in her distraction. "Yeah, the one that's making the Pokémon go all crazy?" She sighed, fingers tightening on the golden amulet resting at her neck. "It's terrible. Even with all the crazy things that went on at my grandpa- err, at the old farm, Dad says he's never heard of anything like this." She felt twitchy all of a sudden, the awkwardness of her taunted past trying to worm its way into the atmosphere of the moment. "I wonder if that's what this is about..." she mumbled. "Maybe the Prof's found the cause?"

    (Daaaaw. T3T See you then~!)

    "Oh, wow...I didn't think it was that bad. I mean, I heard about the Houndoom thing, but I thought it was...like...just headaches." That's all anyone ever described it as: a plague characterized by unyielding, severe headaches that, over time, began widdling away at the pokemons' nerves. Not all of them went crazy, though; if they all did, that would be a serious problem. Good thing it didn't, though. "Yeah, I was just thinking, maybe he-"
    Speak of the devil, the door to the lab burst open, a pair of near-gray eyes locking on the two kids with urgency, impatience, and warmth. "There you are!"
    Kat blinked, then beamed and mewed "Kitty kit!", rushing over to the professor to rub against his pant leg, abruptly releasing Khepri when she did so to send him rushing forward and, hopefully, into the side of the building. Heehee~!
    Will looked over in surprise, then smiled. "Hiya, Profe-"
    "Yes yes, hello," he interrupted, frantic and rushed as ever. "Okay, you two, with me. Hurry, hurry! To my study! It's important!" And like that he rushed back into the lab, worm lab coat flowing behind him, disappearing before either Finch or Will could get a word in edge-wise. Typical professor....
    Will paused a moment, looking to Bugsy, who just rolled her crimson eyes and gave a drone with the air of "weirdo." Kit just mewed happily and bounded up to Finch, putting her front paws up on her leg, wanting to be picked up. They couldn't expect her to walk in there, did they?? "...ooookay then," Will murmured. "Guess someone had their coffee this morning, as usual..."

    (Aaand back early. c: Long post for you is long.)

    Finch hummed in contemplation, brows scrunching up slightly. "Yeah. The Houndoom case is the worst so far... but I've heard some Pokémon are getting so agitated that they play a little too rough with their fellow flock." Even though headaches and increased irritability had been the conclusion of most of the reports, some of them had the infected snapping and sometimes full-on attacking other Pokémon. Finch shook her head, not daring to linger long enough on that to guess what would happen if, say, Geb or Palomino got infected. She paused as Will started talking again, and she jumped a bit as the lab door opened with a bang, the Professor in its frame. "There you are!" Finch snorted slightly, quite used to this kind of behavior by now. She grinned as Kat displayed her usual adoring behavior, and choked back a full-blown belly laugh as Khepri tripped from the abrupt release and landed face-first in the dirt. "Hiya, Profe-" "Yes, yes, hello. Okay, you two, with me. Hurry, hurry! To my study! It's important!" Finch let out a long breath through her nose as the Professor disappeared back inside the lab without letting her even try and stir up a reply.
    Khepri stumbled as the pink tail holding him in place jolted away, and he twisted, landing snout-first on the ground. He cringed, holding his nose, and whimpered quietly. Nun's eyes flew open from having slip closed in his relaxation, and he frowned, getting up and padding over to Khepri on two legs. He put a scaly hand on the younger's shoulder, lifting his head with the other. Khepri let his hands fall, eyes wide at the rare blatant show of compassion. Nun smiled, coughed a laugh, and placed the pad of his right hand on the Riolu's red-tinged nose before turning away and running towards Finch and Will on all fours. Khepri blinked, allowing a tiny, hesitant grin to grace his face, and followed without a moment's more hesitation.
    Finch glanced down at the feeling of paws on her leg, expecting Khepri, but found Kat instead, the Skitty looking up at her expectantly. Finch rolled her eyes, scooping the kitten up as she did and holding her with one arm scratching her head and one under her rump. "Yeah. He really needs to cut down on the caffeine."

    Yay! Uppy! Kat mewed in delight, rubbing her head against Finch's chest as Will mumbled something about something or another, glancing over jealously. Kat was his cuddlebuddy, damn it! Could he help it if she was like a security blanket for him? His eyes drifted back to Finch's purple eyes again, admiring them for a moment before a droning noise of impatience emanated from Bugsy, rolling her red orb-eyes towards the doorway. Oh yeah; whoops. Distracted. Into the lab he went, taking a step forward-
    -and promptly had to jump back to avoid being mowed down by a yellow blur accompanied by an insistent buzzing noise from Rin's wing, the sickly sweet scent of..well, Sweet Scent permeating his nostrils. Marge hussled by, scolding "Wig Wiggly, Wigglytuff!" indignantly, rushing by them in a huff, cheeks puffed as she tipped a lamp back onto its base, pausing to snatch up a pair of scattered papers before continuing on in her hot pursuit. It was always so chaotic in here! Lenroy was over in the corner smirking, the float around his neck pulled taut aroudn his stocky frame...uh oh. Will didn't like that look. He had that gleam in his eye again. Will looked aroudn the area cautiously, scanning the air for anything that might give away the shimmer of a near-invisible tripwire...there: between the desk and the lamp that nearly fell over. That tiny little sparkle along a hair-thin line of seemingly nothing; a dead givaway. Will was pretty lucky--if he hadn't moved when that lamp almost came down, he would have walked right into it. Now that it was back up, however...he glanced at the line that went thruogh the doorway, the bucket of water suspended from a near-invisible thread above it, and an unwary Finch that was headed right towards it...his eyes widened in alarm, moving to stop her. "Finch, watch out-!"

    Finch laughed a bit in the back of her throat, letting her hand pet from the tip of the Skitty's nose to the ends of her hand-like tail. Her soft pink fur was comforting, and Finch could easily tell why Will used her so much for that aspect. She sidestepped Geb to walk to the door, when the forms of both Rin and Marge rushed past, the latter almost trampling her poor Croconaw. He let out a low grumble of "Croconaw! Naw!", before getting up on two legs and padding inside after Finch.
    She had just reached the doorway when she heard the alarmed shout of "Finch, watch out-!" from behind her. Giving a start, she turned her head, and let out a tiny yelp when her foot struck the wire and water cascaded down on her previously tidy and clean form. It soaked through her clothes and hair, and she turned back towards the lab, the promise of pain brewing in her eyes. "Alright... where the hell are you, Lenroy?!"

    (Yes. Yes you may. XD I love Lenroy!)

    Kat shrieked in alarm and irritation, practically bolting out of Finch's arms to shake herself, licking at her paws fervently in an effort to dry them off, tail waving like a fan. Both Min and Rin paused long enough to look over and grin at each other, letting out a "Beeeee~! Combee~!" in a very "Ooooh, busted~!" manner, their exact wording probably coming out ot just that, before continuing their antics, albeit slower so they could watch the show. Will slapped his forehead with his palm, watching the bucket bounce across the floor where it landed. Oof...too late. He tried, at least... "You okay, Finch?" he asked, ignoring the snickering clicks coming from the Kakuna in his arms. Marge let out a gasp and scurried to the area designated as the "kitchen," hurrying to get a towel and return before things got too graphic...although it wouldn't hurt to watch a moment and let Lenroy get what was coming to him.
    Lenroy's amused expression vaporized when he saw the fire in Finch's eyes, trying to slink away behind a bookcase, only to discover he was too fat to make it through. Gulping with a quick glance to his latest victim, Lenroy blurted "Buibuibuibuibui!" as he made a mad dash for the window across the room, hoping his legs would carry his pudgey form fast enough to be able to jump outside and avoid Finch and Kat's wrath. The prank was the fun part; the payback wasn't so great!
