Last Song
“Fuck.”
Under normal circumstances, Bill did not swear. And “normal circumstances” had a broad definition for him at one point. This was, after all, the same man who took turning himself into a pokémon with a surprising sense of curse-free tranquility. But now, under the yawning abyss that stretched across the sky, Bill swore once and precisely once. And that was all he had to say. Just that one “fuck,” followed by a long, desperate quiet.
To be fair, what else does one say when they fuck up so badly they end the world?
Snow fell from the abyss. It might have been falling for a week, for a year, for ten minutes. Bill didn’t know. Time was irrelevant under the abyss. It was because of the hole itself: a temporal anomaly, as he put it to the girl, back when he could think straight. The girl, an orange-haired nurse’s assistant from the pokémon center, stood beside him now and watched the snow bury the city at the foot of Tin Tower.

Down Sunnyside Lane
You will always remember the first time you meet her. Your species has good memory like that, but it works best with the people you’re most attached to. And she, the first thing you see when you burst from darkness into light, is what you automatically assume is your mother, so of course you form an attachment to her.
She holds you up to the light and lets you feel the warmth. Her blue eyes sparkle when she sees you, and the smile on her round face is wide and white. Blue of her eyes. White of her smile. Brown of her short hair. Red and black of her clothes. Pink of her face. Although the world around her develops like a photograph for you, the only colors that are vivid are hers. She emanates warmth and excitement and illumination like a neon sign—as you describe it in hindsight—and it’s beautiful. She’s beautiful, and you love her from the first second you see her.
“Hi, Bill!” she practically sings, and you realize one of those words is your

Anima Ex Machina (REBOOT): Zero
 June 30, 1908. In the dim hours of that morning, a meteorite exploded over Siberian Russia. Modern scientists estimate that the energy had been equal to that of a thermonuclear bomb. Witnesses described it as a flash of blue light almost as brilliant as the sun. The shockwaves alone were enough to flatten over seven hundred square miles of forest. And the object itself? The size of two school buses end to end. Scientists called this the Tunguska event.
In order to picture what a meteor the size of one school bus could do, the logical action would be to divide everything by half. Take three hundred square miles of forest out of the Tunguska event. Dim the brilliant, blue light of the meteorite until it becomes a star half as bright as the sun. Imagine that the resulting air burst releases the energy equivalent to five hundred nuclear bombs instead of one thousand.
On September 27, 2000, almost one hundred years after the Tunguska event, that was exactly how scientists described th

Retroactive Continuity
Leaf knows.
She knows it was sunny the day she left.  She remembers the softness of her mother's kiss on her forehead, the way the grass scratched her bare calves, the gruffness of the old professor's voice as he rushed to her.  She remembers the plastic smoothness of each poké ball in his laboratory.  She remembers the way that bulbasaur, her bulbasaur, croaked and smiled at her.
Her entire world is full of memories.  It took her a week to get to Pewter City but only fifteen minutes for Bulbasaur to defeat Brock's pokémon.  The white light that surrounded Bulbasaur's body was so bright, so beautiful that Leaf nearly cried when she watched it.  Pidgey and Rattata were envious for weeks.
Leaf thought Misty was cool, Erika was nice, and Sabrina was scary.  She didn't care for the male gym leaders that much, not because she didn't like boys but instead because they were so old and talked about th

My Reasons
He is eighteen, and she is seventeen.  And he stands alone at the top of a tower surrounded by men in black suits.  He is well aware of how he got there, and as far as he's concerned, if he had the choice of whether or not to repeat all the steps he took that led him to that room, he would not only do it but also do it with a smile.  There is a reason why he's standing there – a good one.  It plays in his mind over and over again as he stares at the only figure in that room who scares him.
The red-head reaches out for him, palm up and a grin across her face.  She introduces herself as Ariana.  Yet, despite her allegiance, he observes that her expression isn't particularly wicked.  There is no malice in her grin, no twist in the corners of her mouth, not even a glint in her eyes that would betray anything else but straightforward professionalism.  She simply looks at him as if he's an old friend.

Leap of Faith
I wish I could tell you
that everything will be okay
hold you close to me
share my warmth with you
run my fingers through
your coarse hair
but the thing is
that I know.
I know that there are
things
drifting on the periphery
floating motes
just beyond the corner of my eye
darkness manifesting
spiraling into shapes
stinging jellyfish
tendrils reaching down
hands grasping
gripping a little too hard
until our wrists turn white
nails scratching against skin
low voices
whispering
deep
dark
hums
chanting names
I don't know
threatening to drown us both
crushing
down
so far down
it's suffocating
our hands reach out
to grasp for something
anything
but nothing
but darkness
and grins
answer back.
...
I can't see.

There are certain rules one must follow while traveling through Ilex Forest.
First, should you consider doing it, never stray from the path.  Ever.

---
Before you looms the darkness of Ilex Forest.  You've just earned your second badge in the Johto League, and you're already excited about getting your third.  It doesn't strike you as odd that no one in Azalea Town told you much about the forest.  It strikes you as a little odd that no one will tell you how to get through it.  Nonetheless, you know from the map in the pokémon center that it stands between you and Goldenrod City, and you need to get to Goldenrod within a week.  (There is, in reality, no reason why you absolutely need to be there within a week.  You simply decided right after defeating Bugsy that you want to get your next badge right away.)  So, you need to go through Ilex Forest.
You pass an elderly couple on your way through the

Long time, no see, deviants!

After deciding to give dA another try, I've restarted my efforts to upload AEM in its entirety right here on dA. The old chapters have been moved to my scraps and can still be viewable over there for the few folks out there who were attached to them, but otherwise, the new gallery is viewable over here.

I also hope to migrate a few other fanfics from Serebii/AO3 onto dA for shits and giggles and also because Braid is apparently making its rounds off somewhere in creepypasta land, so why not?

While I'm still here, I'd also like to take the time and apologize to a lot of folks I kinda left hanging a couple years ago after I romped right off dA the first time around. I have no idea who's still here or if anyone is still watching, but hey. I'd rather not make many promises about staying because I do that a lot on FFNet and have yet to return over there, but we'll see how things pan out, y'know?

Here's to hoping this time around's more long-lasting, amirite?

Thank you for the watch, Jax! And, if I may ask, what's behind the interesting name?

Haha, I legit had to dig to figure this out. See, the name comes from my second LiveJournal, which I got because I had pretty terrible memories associated with the first one. But after logging back into that account after literally years and going through the posts, it turns out ... there really isn't an explanation that I left on there. Like, back around 2006, I started asking for names, and that one just popped up on the lists I gave my followers back then with the note "don't ask."

So, literally, I can't remember. XD

Ikr? I AM JAX, AND I HAVE LOGICAL EXPLANATIONS FOR EVERYTHING I DO.

EXCEPT FOR THAT ONE TIME WHEN I WAS A MASSIVELY PRETENTIOUS TEENAGER.

WE DON'T TALK ABOUT THAT TIME.
