"Maybe the TARDIS would make me some marshmallows once we have reunited with her. Till then, oh well."

The Master will go look for camping supplies. 

Permalink

There are lots to be had! The proprietor of the store notices he only has one Pokémon and says, "It's really best to have at least two, ideally three or four, before you go out."

Permalink

"In case the one faints and then another wild one attacks you. The ones closer to cities are tame enough that you can decide to risk needing to run for it, if you're camping you need more."

Permalink

"Want to get one now?" he asks Promise.

Permalink

"I would still have it after we were done camping!"

Permalink

"Why? Just get rid of it. Give it to a kid or something. Kids will take anything."

Permalink

"It might get attached!"

Permalink

He gives her a puzzled look. 

"I guess."

He turns to the proprietor. 

"Anyone around here sell TMs?"

Permalink

"Sure, up the street, blue awning."

Permalink

As they leave, the Master says, "You should have heard the trainers yesterday."

Permalink

"Oh?"

Permalink

"They were going on and on about teamwork and friendship and loving your Pokémon. It was nauseating."

Permalink

"Better than torturing them like the other place."

Permalink

"It did seem like your kind of nauseating."

Permalink

"Well, I still don't especially want to befriend one, it seems like it would be a major commitment."

Permalink

He shrugs. 

"I doubt they live too terribly long, even in ideal conditions."

Permalink

"You didn't check."

Permalink

He laughs.

"It's not going to get attached to me. If I get bored I'll find some bleeding heart trainer and tell a sad story."

Permalink

"I didn't try to stop you. But they can live a long time, some kinds, and I don't see why it couldn't get attached."

Permalink

"I don't know about that species, I didn't read most of your book. Some kinds a hundred or even a thousand years."

Permalink

"So they'd lose their trainer anyway."

Permalink

"Maybe there's a way to transition them more gently? I don't know."
