these be my lovely beans. right now I now have like 18 or so of them.... which is a lot. I know. and my plotter isn't quite up to date, but I'll be working on it
if a character's romantic status is taken (eventually), that means that I have an end game ship in mind, but they might still be up for a bit of fun in the mean time.

Ryker “Ry” Volkov

Ryker Volkov is pretty much a cowboy. Sure, he doesn't wear a cowboy hat and prefers leather jackets to jean jackets and rides a motorcycle instead of a Rapidash or something, but he grew up herding Miltanks. So I say that he's a cowboy. His home is in the Hoenn region, as are all of his family, so he's kinda completely alone here in Ho'Ohiki. Something that he doesn't really mind, but I certainly do.

platonic

Ry has never been particularly good at making friends. He grew up surrounded by a multitude of cousins who were forced to like him, so he never really learned what it takes to make people grow to like you. In addition to that, Ry is not much for talking, especially around deep, meaningful things. If given the opportunity he would prefer to grunt rather than use spoken language, but I'm sure if he's able to finally meet someone he does click with he could move past caveman like behavior. All that being said, once Ryker does come to like someone he is incredibly loyal. Almost too loyal, like a dog. He would do anything for his family, and once he learns to tolerate someone they practically become family to him.

  • Aureliusz Volkov
  • Keandre Travere
  • Ethan Porter
  • David Dedrick

antagonistic

Although Ry does not particularly like people, he never really has had anyone he would deem an "enemy." He simply doesn't care enough about strangers or acquaintances to give them that much thought. So you would have to do something particularly evil for him to consider you an enemy.

  • Liam Byron

romantic

Ryker is no good at romance, something that shouldn't come as a shock to anyone at all. Sure, he's seen enough chick flicks to know what you should (and shouldn't) do due to his plethora of female sisters and cousins, but that doesn't really translate into real world experience. Before the fire he never had much interest in pursuing a relationship with anyone, and since then he's been too loaded full of grief to even think about it.

Fallarbor Town, Hoenn
Carlton Leonard Shaw

Carlton Shaw is an thief with an affinity for ice-types, as well as being a bit of a drama queen. He can't help it, he's just too fabulous not to show off. Somehow, between the puns, sarcasm, and dry wit he manages to be very successful at his chosen career, and is now laying low in Ho'Ohiki while trouble cools off in the Alola region.

platonic

The only person Carlton has that even closely resembles a friend is his younger sister, Eliza (but their relationship is way more along the lines of father and child because of the large age difference). Due to his traumatizing childhood he is very much a closed book, slow to give out information and even slower to trust others. However, once that trust is earned there is nothing in the world that will stand between him and those he cares about. He has killed for his family and will not hesitate to do so again. The only exception to his icy exterior is with children. Carlton has a soft spot for kids and is always willing to help them out, no matter the cost.

  • Mano de Rosario

antagonistic

Right now some of the major criminal leaders in the Alola region are gunning for Carlton's head - a situation which has lead him to hiding out in Ho'Ohiki for the time being. He doesn't plan to remain idle though. While here he will want to edge in on some of the less than savory activities this region has to offer (such as poaching), and I'm sure he will make a few enemies while doing so. Both within the rangers and the criminal world.

romantic

Carlton is attracted to intelligence. He doesn't care about the gender of the individual, just that they are able to keep up with him mentally, something which isn't an easy feat. In fact, one of his biggest turn ons is being out witted by someone, even if that does mean that he ends up as the loser in that situation. He's secure enough in his masculinity that he doesn't mind being taken down a peg or two every so often.

Eliza Everly Shaw

Eliza is Carlton's younger sister, and very different from her older brother. Where he is cold and calculating, she is warm and spontaneous, willing to go off on adventures on a moment's notice (probably part of the reason Carlton's hair is starting to turn grey). While she adores Carlton and idolizes him, she can't help but occasionally feel stiffed by his habit of keeping a tight leash on her at all times. An aspiring breeder, Eliza is equally obsessed with adorable Pokemon and babies.

platonic

Eliza loves people - there is no doubt about it. She is happiest when surrounded by people, especially when laughter and fun are in abundance. While she isn't necessarily extremely close to any one individual (apart from her brother), this doesn't mean that she doesn't care deeply for those she considers friends.

  • Yuuriy Rzhevskiy

antagonistic

Due to the fact that Carlton as kept her as far away from his criminal activities as possible, Eliza does not have the same enemies as her brother. In fact, she doesn't really have anyone she would consider an enemy at all. Certainly people annoy her and she doesn't get along with everyone (she isn't perfect, after all), but enemy is a strong word - one she isn't willing to use to label just anyone. However, if anyone were to threaten her brother or anyone else she considers family, she might just have to reconsider her opinion on the matter.

romantic

A word that most people would use to describe Eliza would be innocent. Sure, at the boarding school she attended she had a boyfriend or two, but they never progressed much past holding hands and giggling kisses. And now that she's living with Carlton again, romance probably will be just as slow - protective older brothers who are tattooed, criminal, and intimidating sure can make boys run for the hills.

attis farrell beauregaurd crispin

Attis is in the process of being updated

platonic

Attis doesn't have friends. Sure, he can be charming and friendly when the job calls for it, but he never sticks around long enough to actually continue relationships. I guess the closest thing he might have to a friend would be a work college - someone who also works in the criminal underbelly of Ho'Ohiki and doesn't mind grabbing a drink with a control freak workaholic every so often.

antagonistic

Oh boy. Enemies. He probably has a lot of them.

  • Gabriel Genovese

romantic

Attis is totally a manwhore. He's never been in a real relationship before, too busy being a super secret spy for Hoenn and sleeping around with cute, younger men. He doesn't have time to actually date, preferring instead to add more notches to his bedpost after a job well done. That, apart from breeding Pokemon, is perhaps the closest thing he has to a hobby.

florian millard gosse

At first glance Florian Millard Gosse seems like a stuffy, pretentious snob. And he is one. But behind the posh exterior is a man with a very interesting history. A former poacher, a few years ago he was able to cash in big on a very rare Pokemon and has decided to settle down and run a rare bookshop in Caecus Town.

platonic

While Florian always has perfect manners and is pleasant to everyone, he has few if any close friends - most are merely acquaintances. He is still settling into a normal life and is attempting to figure out exactly how to create relationships with people that do not center around illegal activities. However, that doesn't mean he isn't willing to try going out for a pint or two if someone invites him. And he is an excellent conversationalist.

  • Benjamin Foster

antagonistic

Florian has worked hard to distance himself from his old life, going so far as to even change his name. But as we all know, no one can completely disappear. It would be interesting to see how he would handle a rival poacher or someone from his past bursting through the doors of his bookstore.

  • Leo Foster

romantic

Florian was in a relationship with a fellow poacher by the name of Hendrix Delgado for nearly twenty years, and married for around fifteen. Unfortunately, three years ago the unthinkable happened - Hendrix was murdered. Florian is still unsure about the exact details of the crime because the Uberrime police didn't invest much time in tracking down the murderer of a poacher. For the past three years he has been trying to come to terms with the death of his husband and is finally learning to accept it.

So you are welcome to try something more with Florian, but just be warned - he will take it very slow. and as a side note, HIS HUSBAND REALLY ISN’T DEAD. GASP.

bexley elora ife

Bexley Elora Ife is a complete mess. She has no motivation and no aspiration to do anything in her life other than drink, play video games, and steal from the occasional passing ship. The pirate life fits her exceptionally well, and she doesn't think she will ever grow tried of it - or the way it allows her to live her life. The one thing, besides sleep and video games, that she is passionate is fairy-type Pokemon. For whatever reason, those adorable creatures have made their way into her apathetic heart.

platonic

It's not that Bex is mean or anything, she just is very anti social, preferring to immerse herself in virtual worlds or spend her time with Pokemon. This comes from a huge lack of self esteem and confidence and the belief that no one would want to be her friend anyway. But I would love for Bex to have some people she can turn to if (when) she runs into trouble, other than her pirate buddies.

  • Madam Seviper
  • Mi Jin
  • Kalea Mahelona
  • Raymond James

antagonistic

Due to her profession, it makes sense that Bexley would have many enemies in both the rangers and the police force. Pirate's aren't generally beloved by security and peace keeping forces, so I'm guessing if anyone has a ranger these two won't get along. In addition to that, Bex has a gambling problem and has ranked up quite the large amount of debt in the Orange Islands - that's the very reason she became a pirate, to run away from her problems. I feel like she probably has the same compulsion to gamble here, so she might owe a lot of money to some powerful people in Ho'Ohiki.

romantic

Bex hasn't ever had a real relationship, due in part to being a pirate and also her being too insecure and lazy to pursue anyone she was ever interested in. But it would totally be fun for her to develop a crush on someone and have her work through her problems and be awkward and blunt and on edge.

lev mccoy hadwin

Lev McCoy Hadwin is my grumpy grump who grumps. Although, to be fair, he does have a good reason to be a cranky, cantankerous, old man who is actually only 30 years old. Not only is he recently divorced and without custody of his daughter, but due to a tragic car accident he lost his right arm - something that halted his career as an emergency room surgeon. Luckily Lev was able to commission a robotic arm from a friend which allowed him to join the Odonton Rangers as their medic.

platonic

Lev has a prickly exterior, much like a cactus. He likes to keep people as far away as possible, not only because it is easier to be by himself, but also because he is terrified of losing people the same way he lost his ex-wife. He is afraid that everyone else will realize he's not worth the effort, much like Everly did to him. However, underneath that hard outer shell is someone who does generally care about people, no matter how sarcastic and gruff he treats them.

  • Kerr
  • Scott Mason
  • Iarla Wogan

antagonistic

I can totally envision a lot of people not liking Lev - especially fellow rangers in Odonton. He takes his job as a medic seriously, and is not afraid to chew out those who endanger themselves and their Pokemon recklessly (which is to say, the entirety of the Ranger force). He also quite enjoys giving shots, which doesn't endear him to any of his coworkers. Along with his associates, poachers and criminals in general will not get along with Lev, who likes to help with crime fighting as much as he possibly can (to the annoyance of Kerr).

romantic

Although Lev's divorce was finalized more than two years ago he is still not ready to get back out there and date. Before the divorce Lev was completely in love with his wife and believed they would spend the rest of their lives together, something that obviously did not come true. So if he was so wrong about Everly, what's to say he will make the right choice with the next person he dates? And, in all fairness, he probably won't. Although Lev is a cynical asshole, at the same time he likes to look for the best in people he grows close to. That's why it took so long for him to realize what kind of person his ex-wife actually was.

thatcher finnegan ashby baddock

Thatcher Finnegan Ashby Baddock is a bully. A rich, spoiled, conceited bully who is delusional and thinks the world loves him. Back home in the Kalos region he managed to beat all of the gyms and the Elite Four, but was humiliatingly crushed by the champion. Now he has set his sights on the Ho'Ohiki region to prove once and for all that he is the world's greatest trainer (spoiler alert, he isn't).

platonic

Thatcher thinks he has friends, people he grew up with and would hang out with, but in reality most everyone who has ever known him has hated him. He has a habit of being condescending, rude, and belittling, and pays almost no care for what others might be thinking or feeling. The world revolves around Thatcher, and that is all that matters. However, it isn't completely impossible that he might meet someone here on his travels that can wade through all the douchebag and find a genuine person inside the muck.

antagonistic

While Thatch doesn't realize it, the majority of people on the planet will fall under this category. He has a habit of rubbing people the wrong way and making them dislike, and even hate him and his pretentious, snobby attitude. What Thatcher believes is harmless teasing and friendly ribbing is generally extremely hurtful and damaging.

romantic

Although Thatcher has always had an incredibly bad track for making friends, he has never had difficulty finding people to fall in bed with - mostly because he has a pretty face and knows how to use it to his advantage. No one has ever stuck around long afterwards though, always put off and disgusted by him the moment he opens his mouth to talk. Thatcher hasn't realized that this is a problem yet, and happily bounces from bed to bed, completely unaware that he is the reason that nothing ever works out.

leslie tyson ernst

Leslie Tyson Ernst is a scientist through and through. Not only does he not believe in any of this mumbo-jumbo of Pokemon being in any way godlike, but he also doesn't accept the fact that evolution is this mystical force that cannot be understood. He will understand it one day, arceusdammit, even if it kills him.

platonic

Unfortunately, Leslie is not very good at making and keeping friends, which probably doesn't come as much of a surprise to anyone. To most people he comes off as far too arrogant and full of himself for them to actively want to spend time with. He also has a habit of not liking to admit he's wrong, so he passes the blame onto everyone else - not exactly a good quality to have as a friend. But, for those few people that will put up with his attitude, he can occasionally show himself as loyal and occasionally selfless.

antagonistic

I am more than certain that most researchers will dislike or even hate Leslie based on his attitude and pride, but I really want him to have a nemesis. Someone that is a real rival and challenges him mentally. Someone to keep him on his toes and maybe even be a step ahead of him in terms of research. But other than that Leslie doesn’t really care what other people do – as long as they leave him alone to do his brilliant work, he can’t be bothered to even think about them.

romantic

Surprisingly, Leslie has not done too shabby in the love department. One would think that with his personality and dislike for physical activity it would be difficult for him to have much luck with either men or women, but he is a fairly experience guy when it comes to one night stands. It isn’t as if he’s Casanova or anything, but he does alright. Real relationships, however, are another matter entirely. He finds it difficult to make people last more than a single night.

ewan carrick donovan
App

[URL=]Playlist[/URL]

Ewan is an uptight, severe, and overworked Uberrime Ranger who absolutely loves his job and is probably a little too obsessed with firearms and other weapons (even though he isn't allowed to use them while he's working). He tends to believe all criminals are bad and all rangers and other law enforcement officers are good. To him, the world is very much black and white.

platonic

Ewan is a very closed off man and doesn't let himself get friendly with many people. There isn't much of a reason for this, its just who he is. He is cordial to his fellow rangers (as long as they are doing their job properly with little to no foolishness), but doesn't go out of his way to be overly kind or get to know people.

antagonistic

Due to how long he has been a ranger, it would make sense for Ewan to have plenty of enemies in the world of illegal things. He's helped in countless numbers of busts of illegal breeding and fighting rings over the years and is not a friend to anyone who does any criminal activity.

romantic

As mentioned above, Ewan is not a warm and cuddly person, and therefore doesn't see much need for romance in his life. He was married to his ex-wife Analia Darby for over ten years until they split up and he hasn't attempted to pursue anyone since then. His life is his work and he doesn't want anyone distracting him from that.

On another note, Ewan has believed for all of his life that he is heterosexual. He’s only ever slept with women and hell, he was married to one for a good portion of his adult years. However, recently he’s started to notice that some of his male coworkers are… good looking...

asen levni

If someone where to describe Asen in three words they would be as follows - woke hipster activist. Asen doesn't feel complete if he doesn't have a cause to rally behind or something to fight for. Which makes his job as an investigative journalist for the Uberrime Herald a dream come true for him.

platonic

Asen is a very friendly person, always willing to help someone out or get to know someone better. And I literally can't think of anything else to write right here. Which is embarrassing. I mean, Asen is an awesome dude - you should all be friends with him. Though he is really spontaneous and has no regard for his personal safety at all. He just dives into things headfirst, which can be fun. And also dangerous.

antagonistic

Once Asen's good opinion is lost, it is lost forever - he doesn't give people second chances once they have broken his trust. So while he is usually a friendly person, he can also be cold and a little bit cruel. He absolutely hates those who take advantage of the poor and weak and injustice of any kind, and has allowed that hatred to spread to the people who have caused Piscari and Uberrime to fall to corruption and ruin.

romantic

Asen has had his fair share of romantic relationships, both long and short. Right now he isn't in any relationship and isn't actively seeking one, wanting to spend his time on taking down the corruption in both Uberrime and Piscari through the use of the written word, but he isn't entirely opposed to meeting and hitting it off with someone.

So... Ethan and Ry share TONS in common its kinda scary. Granted Ry was given a childhood that Ethan would have died to have but the idea of wearing heavy coats regardless of the time of year to hide scars and the hope and dream of owning a Ranch one day where they can just quietly settle into their own routines, Ethan gets it.

Ethan isn't great at starting conversations or talking but if someone cares about Pokemon he'll open up to them easily. Its Queenie that does all the talking and greeting and reassuring. She's dripping with hopeful, innocent energy that just wants to meet everyone and become friends. Usually this also involves her helping Ethan through his anxiety and encouraging him to open up (as Ethan can understand Queenie's speech). And an interaction between them could be pretty fruitful!

Ethan knows quite a bit about Piscari and all the nice places to go Apricorn picking along the beach. He can give Ry the safest directions around Piscari or simply help him look foreboding enough to help him cross without any trouble.

Trouble maker with a capital T and he loves hanging around Okeanos and making sure newcomers experience the high life. His favorite thing to do is just.. get to know people and that may be a bit abrasive for Ryker but maybe Ryker needs some help around town. Or we could wait until after Ryker has his Pokemon and if Ry is the sort they could have a battle at the Battle Cafe and David could try chatting him up during that.

Idk.. their personalities are miles apart but I think they'd make an interesting pair.

David is already well versed with scars and burn marks (one of his best friend's body is mostly burned) and he doesn't judge people for things they've done in their lives just in how they live in the now. He'll sense Ry may not like his super happy, flirtatious attitude and become more sweet and caring, offering to give him a grand tour for free and making sure Ry is treated right in the town. Because ya know.. he cares.

Oh my goodness yes. A million yesses for both of them.

Ryker totally needs a monosyllabic, broody, grunting friend who he can just spend time with and never talk. Or just talk about Pokemon, because that is a super easy (relatively speaking) topic for Ry to open up about. And in regards to helping him around Piscari, that would be so helpful. Ry isn't very street smart (due to growing up on a farm and never interacting with anyone besides his family). That doesn't mean he's stupid or gullible, just that he is quite likely to offend the wrong people and end up in a place I don't even want to think about. So having someone there to help him not die would be a huge blessing.

And then they can open up a Ranch together and be bros and just sit in the porch overlooking all their Miltanks or Tauros or Mareeps and drink beer and not talk.

user posted image
(he doesn't like that I'm gonna make him have friends. but he'll get used to it)

As for David, I am so excited for this. I have always loved the dynamic of the an Upbeat, Super Excitable, Loud person paired with Dark, Brooding, Silence is Golden person. I am so on board with this. Ry will probably be annoyed at David at first, and most likely resent how energetic he is, but I could see them being good friends. Especially since David has gone through so much and come out on top of everything. It can show Ty that he's being a giant crybaby and that he needs to move on from that one mistake he made as a stupid kid.

I love the idea of them meeting at the Battle Cafe. Ry will still be trying to become comfortable with his new Pokemon (which I'm thinking will be the Charmander, because I love making things difficult for my babies), so he will jump at the chance to bond with him through a battle. And it's a way to force these two to interact.


And dude. I totally get what you mean. I suffer from the same things, and every so often loose the will to write or do anything at all. That's actually why I've been failing all my classes, I have just had no motivation to write. So don't even worry about it. Take as long as you need.

I can play the gif game too! You had mentioned interest in Ry meeting Keandre. I can't promise he won't flirt cause Ry is hot (but he's not pushy!). Not really sure what you had in mind, but I do think Ry's silence combined with Kean's not-silence could be amusing! He's traveling all over Ho'ohiki, so any area really works. Either you can start it and tag me or let me know where and I can get things rolling. ^-^

Feel free to look over my other chars and let me know if anyone else strikes your fancy. I may get an idea after Kean's and Ry's thread. <3

I did look over Carlton's app and I agree whole-heartedly that Scrap needs to meet him--once he's been approved of course! Maybe he could help the kid out of a spot of trouble? She's getting into those regularly... (I'M SORRY RY, I KNOW THIS IS YOUR PLOTTER. I'LL LEAVE NOW!)

Sometimes I really wish I'd made Ry a big flirt. Because then he could look like this.
user posted image


But I guess silent, broody, grunting cowboys who don't really smile ever are fun too. And I do really love the dynamic between happy, peppy, flirty people and brooding rocks like Ry. So don't try to tamp down on Keandre's spirit! I am totally fine with Ryker being uncomfortable and out of his element with someone being a huge flirt. I'm trying to figure out how we could force the two to interact. I feel like we need to have some sort of "plot" or something to drive the thread.

Ryker does like to help people in need, because it makes him feel useful and he loves working with his hands. Could we start with something like that?

Jago King or Annika might be fun as well.

And I absolutely adore that idea! Carlton would completely step in and help a little kid in trouble. And he could totally go BAMF on a bad guy (or, well, an even badder bad guy).

Oh! Keandre has a cart/wagon his Blitzle pulls that has his performance outfits and props. It could get a cracked wheel? Keandre has a spare, but could use the help getting it on. He would probably insist on repaying him by buying/making him a drink or dinner? Don't know if Ry would go for that, but we could get a bit out of fixing the wagon.

Annika is a definite candidate for needing help. I'm sure I can come up with a scenario in which she would be very grateful.

Jago's interest are primarily fighting, flirting (more with girls than boys), and Pokemon battles. He's pretty self-suffcient. Don't know if Ry would be interested in battles once he has a non-domestic Pokemon.

That sounds perfect! Ry would be perfect at helping him repair a wheel (he's probably done something similar to that back on his family's ranch in Hoenn), and I'm sure he could be talked into either dinner or a drink. He would refuse at first, insisting it wasn't needed, but he's not really rolling in money right now, so it would be stupid to refuse a free meal. This is gonna be so great! I'm so excited!

We can keep thinking about what Ry and Annika can do, because she seems like such a sweetie pie.

I'm not sure how Ry will take to Pokemon battling. He's a rancher first and foremost, and never had any desire to go on a Pokemon journey and win Gym Badges when he was younger. But who knows, people certainly change. If he ever discovers he loves battling I'll let you know and then we can work something out!

I'm still working on crafting Ry's character, so I'm not exactly sure where he will turn out yet.

(Also I am late to this plotter, AAAAAAH, but I do love Ry, and E.T. loves bothering brooding, surly, people because she's a big noisy jerk, so let me know some time when you're not busy, baby, and we will get some OBNOXIOUS SMELLY CUSSWAGON ALL UP IN THIS BIZ!)

Ry will be so appalled by E.T., it will be fantastic. I am so down for them randomly running into one another (maybe literally) and then becoming frenemies. Like, they can't stand each other, but at the same time they sorta get along. And Ryker totally needs someone who can knock him down a few pegs or two, which I'm sure E.T. will totally be up for the job.

Excuse my lack of gif offers. I am on my phone.

Ethan would love to bro it up. He is usually found along the Milia although if we want them to meet in Piscari proper that can also be arranged. Queenie usually the reason Ethan tends to meet people. Perhaps Queenie runs up to Savi and wants a proper introduction for Ryker too. She does so desperately love to interact with people. Ethan can have any other number of his dogs with him and if we want to be truly cruel we could have the grunting men help Ry get over his fear of fire types with baby puppy Duke who isn't very old (only level 2!) and who I don't believe knows any fire moves. Queenie will try to reassure Ry as much as possible. She is good for anxiety. At least... For Ethan's anxiety.


David would love to be the Rainbow to Ry's dark leather ;D of course if your journey thread for your starter takes too long we can do something different. David has a few strings in the Poaching and Thievery business to save Ry from some horrible misunderstandings. David does love to play hero for once and flirt it up all the while. He'd probably offer to take Ry out to lunch afterwards, make sure Ry leaves not only safe but with a full belly (and hopefully with David's phone number too)

I feel like Queenie would be absolutely wonderful at helping Carlton overcome his fear of fire - and come to terms with the fact he picked a fire Pokemon to join his crew. And having a little baby fire puppy would be super helpful too, because he loves dog and cat Pokemon - especially cute little dog and cat Pokemon. Or really cute Pokemon in general (as you can probably tell from our Journey thread).
I think meeting up in the Milia first would be good, because it's closest to where Ry is right now and that means we can have these bros start interacting quicker!
And seriously. I just want to wrap Ethan up in a big soft blanket and give him hot chocolate and a big hug.

As for David, I think it would be so fun to have Ry be the one in trouble and need someone else to rescue him (due to his appearance and stature he generally is the one helping others out, so it'll be fun to see how he handles someone like David coming to the rescue). And yay for people feeding Ry! I love how people want to feed him. xD
What sort of situation do you think Ry could get himself into that David would be able to help him out with?

hmmm

Ryker
okay I'mma start Ethan's thread with Ryker like rn cuz i want to for sure so expect that tonight or tomorro when I post it! With any luck, Ry may have the chance to meat Coal the Shiny Furfrou! Fancy

I mean hmmm maybe its raining and rather than taking busy streets with all the people, Ryker choose more of the construction side of thing where there aren't any stores in the store fronts yet and because its raining no one is really there to do the construction. And some Poachers show up to snag Savi cuz Ryker without any other Pokemon and he can't win a fight against like... hmm lets say there are three. And he's floundering and maybe the Poachers have some kind of weapons (probably nothing more than bats and knives really maybe the ringleader has a baton) so David taking this avenue cuz its easier to bike down sees this and intervenes. He'd probably just be like "Yo! If I give you some cash will you fuck off?" and the Poachers just yeah sure. Or I mean David could totally get into a fight with three Poachers. He's that stupid. He'd probably throw his bike at two of them and punch out the third.

Attis

MANO CAN BE "FRIENDS" WITH ATTIS. Mano's favorite bar is the Skarmory Pub in Campana. He has ins with the bartender there and so long as you don't bring work in he probably won't care what you do. He pretty exclusively goes down there to drink really but Attis probably got to Ho'ohiki looking for a place to get IDs and people turned them to Mano for the damn near best IDs on the island. (one day when Mano is an NPC I want people to come to him in a journey thread for fake IDs and have fake IDs do something neat but idk what they would do yet or even if I could make them as an item they are just a dream)

We can do a thread at the bar. By then I imagine Attis has looked up Mano's record as being a Poacher and having been in jail and things. Which Mano doesn't particularly care about but I wonder if, to Attis, its a bit odd for Mano to put his real name out there where its easily found rather than go by an alias when he also lives such a normal lifle with a business front and everything.

David does have terrible taste in men. He'll need a bit of cat and mouse game probably before Attis can take him anywhere. But hey. Thats half the fun.

Carlton

Kerr says bring it to his mountain, Carlton, and you'll get tossed off a cliff. Thats all he wanted to say =|

SO THIS IS GOING IN THE PROPER CATEGORY FOR ONCE but Mano would love to do a past thread with Carlton =o That way Mano can do the Fake IDs for him and his sister. He'd definitely poke and prod as to why he needs them, he does this a lot just to tease people. All they need to do is come to his shop in Okeanos. Its a tourist shop that sells a lot of knock offs that are sold as the real deal but tourists don't ask questions when a real life Okeanos Native is selling things. At least not enough to cause a fuss for his business. He takes other requests in his backroom and he'll be happy to help! @Miss Basset

Ethan/David and Ryker

Ryker will be so obsessed with that Furfrou. And all of Ethan's Pokemon, lets be honest. I am so ready to write about two men who dislike emotions and speaking trying to interact. Good thing they have sensible Pokemon to help them get through life.

That totally makes sense that Ryker would want to avoid the busy streets and take the less used paths - even though it is a stupid idea. AND YES. I WANT TO SEE DAVID BEATING UP THREE GUYS AT ONCE. WITH A BIKE. Ryker will be so confused. Especially because he will probably have a concussion at this moment. I imagine he got pretty beat up by the poachers. And then he will feel humiliated because he got ganged up on and beaten up and had to be rescued. And David will have to take him home and nurse him back to health. With a lot of complaining from Ry.

Mano/David and Attis

YAY. Attis has a drinking buddy. I mean, as much of a buddy as Attis can possibly have. This will be a really interesting dynamic, because they seem like somewhat similar men, but Mano is a lot more well adjusted than Attis is. I mean, Mano actually has a long term relationship and is gonna become engaged soon. That's quite different than Mr. I Just Sleep With Pretty Young Things and Leave Quietly in the Night Attis. Maybe Attis will pick up some good habits from this "friendship."

user posted image


David and Attis would just be a train wreck, wouldn't it. I can't wait to see what happens. David just gets all the men, doesn't he? because he deserves it and everything good in the world.

Kerr/Mano and Carlton

Carlton will probably avoid his mountain, at least until he has built up a sufficient power base. He knows when to pick his battles. And this one will probably be one he'll avoid for as long as possible.

user posted image


AND YEAH. That would actually be incredibly perfect. Because Carlton really can't let anyone from back in Alola know where he is - he'd be in big trouble. And maybe Mano can help him set up a few jobs or something, give him some tips on what places are best to frequent and which are best to avoid. I know I want to get Carlton into poaching eventually, so he'll need someone to teach him how to do that. All he knows how to do is steal things from rich people right now.

Aureliusz and Ryker

Our wayward boys need to meet somehow! Aureliusz is a talker, he could talk all damn day anything anything and nothing, and doesn't particularly require the person he's talking to to really engage with what he's saying, so he wouldn't get offended by Ryker's refusal to speak in proper sentences. So, hey, that's a start!

I feel like Aureliusz runs a bakery on the side, his focus on his specialty isn't a great source of income given that it's mostly experimenting and learning about how things work, so he needs a way to make that money! Maybe Ryker can help him out; he needs somebody who can do some heavy lifting, and in return he'll pay him and even feed him too! And talk at him the whole time, oops.

Plus possible future (like way, wayyyyyyy into the future) bonding over their scars and the shame they represent, because these boys got issues.

Also, have a gif!

Aureliusz and Ryker

OH MY GOODNESS YES. BAKING RYKER.

user posted image


The opening credits for Teen Wolf always made me think that Derek was baking cupcakes or something and got super pissed when a bag of flour exploded on him.

I am so incredibly down for him working for Aureliusz (I will learn to spell his name). This is perfect and he's going to hate it but it will be fantastic.

And maybe one day Ryker is lifting heavy things and his shirt rides up or something and Aureliusz sees his scars and they get into a conversation that Ryker absolutely hates but there are brownies and cookies so it makes it somewhat better. And he'll reply in monosyllabic words, but he'll actually be talking and that's progress!
