[ no matter where you're from in the pokeworld, eventually you go on a journey. it's kind of a typical life thing. the age varies - ten is typical, but it's not completely unheard of to be a little older - and sometimes so do the details of the journey, but it is accepted and common that you go. the world is a dangerous place but kids are regularly expected to be able to handle it.

roxy lalonde is from lumiose city in kalos. so is dirk strider, her cousin-brother-best friend to some degree. she's known him since she was a kid, because her mom and dave strider are maybe related (she's not sure, they look it, but - ) or maybe just best friends but effectively have kept close enough that dirk was always there in roxy's life to bother, be it about codes or pokemon or random gossip. it was a Foregone Conclusion that they would obviously leave on their journey together whenever it happened, which is, of course, Now.

typically they could travel the kalos region and do badges there. failing that they could skip to kanto or johto or hoenn or a million and one other places. before turning thirteen they'd spent some pretty intense summer planning sessions about where they'd go and how and kalos, while the Home Region, was kind of not the best place for a coming-of-age journey. they'd seen a lot of the place by the time they were older tagging along with their guardians, and also? their guardians were kind of Huge Gym Leaders in kalos and while that was super cool it was a lot to live up to and it sounded even more cool to get a chance to make a splash, like, somewhere else.

kanto was a top runner because PROFESSOR FUCKING OAK and even more importantly the original developer of the pokemon storage system? but, like. dirk wasn't a huge fan of the league setup and they had their entire teen years to dick around from region to region, so after debating it they eventually settled on alola as their pokemon debut. which was exactly how roxy put it, always. alola does have the downside of No Pokemon Fashion Shows (lame) but roxy has secured their 2nd region as hoenn where contests are huge, so she's chill with an island vacay for their first thing.

with tickets on the boat paid for by their guardians who were Themselves and gave strict instructions to not, like, die. and also to phone home a lot? roxy is bouncing in place at the railing of the ship as the first island comes into view, her skitty hopping up and down like her after a second before roxy grabs dirk's arm to...make him join her in the hopping. or just to have his arm jostle up and down, as you do. ]

We're nearly theeeeeeeere! Holy shit where are we gonna go first? I know, I know what order we're hittin' towns in but there are stores Dirk, I see them from here. Stores with CLOTHES. And cool TMs. And maybe some cool HMs? I hear those work different in this region than other ones - ooooh, and we have to try the malasadas. But before or after the shopping?? These are the real hard-hitting decisions of our very own Pokedventure, bromodachi, we have to make the absolute right choice here!

[ technically they should maybe go meet the island professor rose hooked them up with like introductions to but. BUT. shopping and snacks and being on their own for real for the first time in thirteen years? bounce around a little dirk you killjoy, because roxy has definitely not stopped that. ]

[Dirk is not hopping. He will not participate in hopping. Roxy you are jostling his arm.

Dirk doesn't stop her, though. His Rotom hovers nearby, seeming amused by it all. Dirk mentally gives a Goddammit, AR, but sadly his possessed computer sunglasses can't read his thoughts. Wait no, that's probably a good thing.]

Cool it, brosis, you are going to break my goddamned arm. [Why is he still not fighting her then.] We should talk to the Professor your Mom mentioned to us. We can offer to treat him to malasada as thanks.

[Dirk's Bro can be easy with the curse words, but he is oddly conscious of a certain kind of graciousness in social interaction. Answering kindness with food or gifts has been covered in Dirk's social education. This is also why he has presents for the professor packed away, to be offered on their meeting.]

We can ask after his wife when we meet him. Both of them sounded pretty interesting.

[Dirk looks at her.

He raises up on his tip-toes. He descends to flat feet. Hoppity.]

[He can't help being a monotone. I mean he could help some but why would he when Roxy clearly expresses all the enthusiasm that he actually feels but just not like that.]

When you discover a digital reality inside our computers complete with anthropomorphic bits and bytes, name somethin' after me.

No time required. I want a stupid obscure reference only you and me will get, Ro-Lal.

[Because that's hilarious and exactly fits his sense of humour. He leans against the rail, finally, and never once protests that they're going to do Every Region. He may not be the emotive party that his best friend/kinda-sibling is, but he is equally eager to be ambitious in their travelling, and there's no way he's letting her solo this.]

[That's maybe why Dirk goes off the list. He is not scared of Roxy's sappy oneupmanship efforts.]

Without any doubt.

[why is he like this]

Young Lass & Ladd team battles? [That may not be their titles but it's hilarious as a title to him and therefore he is going to joke about it with Roxy. Also he likes team battles with Roxy.]

[Pains-in-the-Neck Dirk and Roxy want to battle]

No detours to the hair places until we meet the Professor.

I'll watch you get yours done. I'm an awesome friend like that.

[He will, and let Roxy take the lead. Because he loves her.


You will not believe what Andre did today. Oh my God.

[Dirk is too loving to Roxy and, especially at 13, way too willing to give her whatever he can.]

Andre D with Andre W. It was some pretty dramatic shit. I heard Andre W started crying.

You know how they dated the same person? It turns out that Andre D and Andre W are in fact both the Andres H. They're twins. And Andre H Sr is demanding both of his illegitimate children come back to the family to run his business.

Natasha W has already bought the lye and the hacksaw. With the help of Andre D.

I would help you murder anyone, no questions asked.

I figure my Bro wouldn't exactly approve, but he'd help me hide the body. [Roxy's Mom, though.] I'd go to your mom for advice.

[personal profile] splinten 2017-05-05 06:57 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah, but they definitely deserved it.

[Dirk may have a looser definition of 'deserved it' than normal but he is sure Rose was right and the death was necessary for the good of all.]

[personal profile] splinten 2017-05-08 03:53 am (UTC)(link)
We aren't biased, Roxy. We just have all the facts. The primary fact is that your Mom's judgement is sound.

[this may not be a Fact the way Dirk insists it is but look, she hasn't gone Grimdark, why would he think that]

[Dirk gently takes Roxy's arm and redirects her to the direction where the house Actually is.]

Hm, no, doesn't sound plausible. I think you must be discussing people who just don't exist.

[personal profile] splinten 2017-06-06 05:31 am (UTC)(link)
You'd help if we asked. [He is sure they could rope both Roxy and his Bro into a coverup and it would be hilarious.]
