[Guess who has Pokemon-related questions. Go on, guess. Yes, it's Jake English.

He's accompanied by a Ralts and a Kirlia this time, though. He's had them for a little while, but the expression on his face is more thoughtful than...well, pained.]

To those chaps raising psychic-type Pokemon, I have a bit of a question for you. Is it possible to teach them how to play things like chess or cards?

[Although, now he looks like he'd rather take something back.]

Actually, you know what? Never mind the cards. I'd really not have to deal with them having a gambling addiction or accusing the other of cheating via telepathy or whatever.

[Gambling Anonymous for Pokemon...yeah, no, that doesn't need to happen.]

I'm also curious to know something. What's the significance of being 16? I've heard that it's something of a special occasion by a friend, but I can't say I follow the reasoning behind a "sweet sixteen."

I guess it depends on where you come from. Like I don't remember anything special about turning sixteen back home, but there's ceremonies and festivals and stuff for other milestones. There's Shichi-Go-San for kids, the Coming of Age day for people who just turned twenty... and some others, too, though not all of them are practiced nowadays.

[shakes her head]

Sorry, I didn't mean to ramble on like that. Anyway, I guess what I'm trying to say is that it's all a part of growing up, and getting one step closer to being an actual adult. Maybe that's what they're celebrating when somebody turns sixteen.

Really? I'm surprised you think so - I mean, not that it's boring, but... well, when you grow up with this sort of thing, it just becomes normal, you know?

[beams at him, while her posture relaxes]

Anyway, if there's anything you'd like to know, feel free to ask. Or - hey, why don't you tell me about the stuff you had growing up? Did you do anything special like this where you came from?

[Glances away for a moment]

I'm sorry to hear that. After something like that, I can't really blame you for not being in the mood to celebrate. But, were you two really the only ones there? I mean, I guess someone had to come by and drop off supplies, or stuff like that, but that's not really the same...

[So, it really was just the two of them. That sounds like a pretty lonely life - not that he seems bothered by it]

Well, I'm glad that your friends were able to help out, at least. Though, I've got to admit, I never really thought about making friends over the internet like that. Then again, it's not that much different than using the Gears, is it?
princelyspirit: ([smile] oh hey!)

No, no, it's fine. I'm Utena Tenjou, and it's nice to meet you, too. Anyway, it sounds like you're having a pretty good time here. How long have you been in Johto?
