"I'm her soul I can't be teleported away," Araeneve says, somewhat frantic, backing up and returning to Verity as if threatened.  You can't do that to daemons who haven't separated.  She twists around Verity, curling around behind her defensively.

Soul? I don't understand.

Confusion.  "Uh."  They have to pause for a moment.  "... All people have two bodies - a human of flesh, and a daemon of soul.  We are Verity-and-Araeneve."

Permalink

Neither of them can think of an argument to that.  Other than 'yes', which... would sound probably a bit rude.  Hmm.

"Do you need help?"

I don't know where I am and there are humans everywhere and I'm scared and I can't find any outdoors that isn't night sky in every direction with no air.

They speak gently and slowly, starting at the beginning and hoping something sounds familiar.  "This is the fleet.  A long time ago, the planet that our ancestors came from was dying.  To survive, they built ships that could fly through space.  There are other planets that we could land on, and live on.  We're trying to reach one now, but it's a long journey."

Oh no. 

There is no outside? There are humans everywhere?

"There are places where people don't go often.  That's why we're out here, to be left alone for a while.  Though it isn't somewhere to live permanently."

She considers the mew.  "What about you ...mew?  Sorry, I don't know either of your names."

The Mew shivers. I don't know. There was a cage. Before that, nothing. There was a cage, and a man in a lab coat, and a human in a cage, and then she woke up and then she wasn't human anymore, she was Mewtwo. 

I used Transform so I could bring a Paras to a Pokemon center without anyone trying to capture us, Mewtwo chimes in. 

Mewtwo broke our cages and threw a desk at the man who was not in a cage and I wanted to be with her so I went and she hugged me and it was good, Mew continues. Then she teleported around and I didn't really care about that except for the part where we couldn't breathe, that was bad.

They are still confused.  Possibly even more confused.  "So, Mewtwo, you were somewhere with wilderness... a planet?  And rescued a paras to bring to a hospital.  Which you disguised yourself as a human to do.  Did the humans not have daemons?  Or... are all people born together then separate as babies?  Though... why was anyone trying to capture you?"

I don't know what a daemon is. There are humans and there are pokemon, and the humans keep pokemon captive and make them fight for them and take them away. I wasn't captured, I was made, in a lab, but when I escaped I saw that it was the same. The humans would come into the forest and throw their capture balls at pokemon and the pokemon would go in the balls and the humans would take them away and nobody would ever see them again. The other pokemon in the forest would try to fight the humans anyway, even though the humans would have captive pokemon fight them until they were weak enough for the balls, but the other pokemon liked fighting and I don't, I mostly avoided them, and they weren't too bothered by the idea of being captured but I've been held captive by humans and it's awful!

"Like I mentioned before, daemons are the soul half of a person.  Every time a human is born, a ditto appears alongside them.  We are connected - hurting one hurts the other, killing one kills the other.  We can't get more than a few meters apart or touch humans other than our own without pain.  In adolescence we settle, turning from a ditto into a permanent form based on personality.

"There used to be pokemon in the dead world we came from.  We don't know as much as we should... a lot of information about back then was lost.  They were supposedly non-sapient, shaped like daemons and had the same abilities, but needed to eat and do other biological things daemons do not.  So, I guess you being pokemon makes sense.  It doesn't explain the humans not having daemons where you were, though." 

What would someone even be without a soul?  Perhaps that explained why they captured pokemon.  Either evil and with no concious to tell them right from wrong, or trying to fill a void beside themselves?

Dead world? 

Permalink

"A planet inside of a pocket dimension.  The sky here goes on forever with stars scattered around in it.  The sky there was a spherical shell at the edge of the universe, with tiny points of light glowing on it.  Its sun and moon were just larger points of light.  It had been stable for a long time but eventually whatever was making it work started breaking down and collapsing.  Pokemon populations started vanishing, the lights in the sky-sphere started going out...  Everyone got together to build the ships, and get at least a portion of the population free."

How--how did I get here?

Permalink

"I don't know.  Do you remember the people at the pokemon center doing anything?"

Permalink

No. The nurse took Paras and treated them and brought them back and I took him back to the forest and let him go and had a panic attack and fell asleep without turning back. 

Permalink

Hmm.  That would have to all have happened on a very short timescale for that to make sense with what they know of transform.  Then again, perhaps a powerful legendary using transform would be able to make it last longer.  

"Mew, does any of what she said sound familiar?  Or anything I said about the fleet or dead world?"

Permalink

I don't think so. 

Permalink

"Hmm.

"Could you find the place on the fleet with the cages again, if you wanted to?  That shouldn't be happening, and the police should be informed.  Also, whoever they are might have clues as to what brought you two here."

Permalink

 

I think so. You're sure the police would do something about it?

Permalink

"They'd better," they say.  "Kidnapping and imprisoning people is illegal."

Permalink

Skeptical: Even when the people are Pokemon?

Permalink

"I can't see why that should make a difference."
