QUIET. PLEASE. by purplekecleon QUIET. PLEASE. by purplekecleon
It was a few twists back along the corridor that he noticed.

The sound came from the walls. Quiet, distant, but definitely there; if his own footsteps hadn't been silent, he might have missed it.

Sidling cautiously up against the brick, Skive pressed his ear to the wall.

"klink, klink, klink"

What was that? Tinkling metal?

"klink...klank!"

The floor trembled, then shook, then roared. The lone Sneasel dove for the ground and covered his head, bracing for the ceiling to come down as the world shook ever more violently.

And, quite abruptly, it stopped. Everything was still. Not the slightest sound.

Skive looked up, looked around, and saw nothing. He stood cautiously, waited another moment, and still saw nothing. He was about to continue down the hallway when he heard it, in the perfect darkness, just in front of him.

"I didn't call Merlot because I don't need her."

He snarled and swiped at the darkness. "The Eevee kid? After another round? If I can take out yer friend, I can sure get ridda ya just as easy--"

A tiny spot of orange fire appeared, floating in midair. Little more than an ember at first, it grew in intensity, revealing the Eevee standing before him. His expression was the same, but his tail quaked with rage, individual strands of fur pointed out so sharply that they glistened in the strange light. "Do you know how Fire attacks work?"

Fire? What? Skive took a step backwards, but his heel bumped into a wall that hadn't been there moments ago. He was tired, burned, and suddenly markedly less confident.

Lexy matched with a step forwards. Above his open palm rested a sphere of flame, a miniature sun that swirled and convulsed and was looking forward to becoming a supernova. "I don't yet understand them, myself. It’s a funny thing, being able to do something but not knowing how. I don’t like it." He regarded the spinning, burning orb with a genuine appreciation, or... respect? "Our current theory is that we extract flammable gases from the air, then ignite them with a spark of some mental energy. Sheer force of will, if you like."

The orange glow took on a dark red hue, flames licking out the underside of his hand between his fingers. "That's how the library is lit, you see. It's just Sunny Day. We just had to get the air to resemble the upper atmosphere well enough, so the effect would persist indoors for more than a few minutes." He chuckled to himself. "Merlot, she scoffs at it every time she comes by. She says I should get outside more, too. I tell her this is my compromise."

Skive growled and flexed his claws, tired of being ignored like this; as far as he was concerned, being in the Slasher Gang still meant something, and this little punk was the last Pokémon who could take that away. "Listen, you loudmouthed cretin--"

The librarian's demeanor shifted in an instant, bored eyes suddenly quite focused, glaring past the Sneasel's claws and through his eyes and into his very core. "This is a LIBRARY." His paw drew back. "QUIET. PLEASE."

He threw.

The dark little passage exploded in flame.

I think this is the first time I've been scared of an eevee.

And the lighting is excellent. It's feels natural like actual sunlight, but... smaller.

Wow. Even though Sneasels have a MUCH higher attack and speed than Eevee's as a general rule, Skive simply didn't take into consideration that Lexy is probably level 80 or something nuts like that. I know that if I was as brilliant a scholar as Lexy, I wouldn't limit myself to only one path.

Fire, water, electricity, or any narrow path is just a limitation to your ways of thinking.

Also, Eevee's CAN learn any of the elemental attacks, which is pretty cool.

BLAST BURN FTW!!!!

You do realize that this universe does not follow competetive play , levels and stats are as useless here as someone having supposedly more stats than you in real life

:iconrarkorn:

Actually, Eevee can't learn any elemental attacks aside from Shadow Ball, Bite, and Dig. The rest are either Normal type or don't do any damage to the opponent.

Well, yes, but that depends on which version of the game you play. I don't think Iron Tail is available in Black and White.

Obviously. Iron Tail isn't a TM in Black and White. What I meant when I said that was that it's not available as an egg move, either.

rarkorn Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2011
That's impossible. Eevee obviously doesn't learn that move on its own, and the TMs it can learn are all either Normal types or stat changers, with the exception of Shadow Ball, Mud Slap and Dig.

Don't forget Hidden Power; it's a decent catch-all for storylines. One of *BehindtG's characters uses Hidden Power Fire, and it's a Vespiquen. I'd guess this is something like that. It makes sense considering the text, anyway.

At a time, anyway. In any case I take it all back; the wiki lists Lexy's movepool as Mimic, Work Up, Trump Card and Substitute; I guess mimic would work if he mimicked Cal's Flame Burst :/ [link]
