The past couple of months had been especially stressful and exhausting for Juni in particular. She’d managed to get 3 different projects completed and 2 papers published from that. It was exhausting being a post-doc where everything was expected to happen faster, but she found the pace particularly helpful in this case in keeping her going. There were deadlines to meet, and lord Groudon she would meet them!
A third paper was coming, but she technically had a fourth project to finish up before she could start writing it— and that was what led her down the long road towards Pine Town riding atop a Metang that was just barely big enough to sit comfortably on. There were other Pokemon that she had that were rideable, of course. Blades her Absol was very large and used to running with her atop her back, but the particular motion of feet on the ground was not something she was actually interested in right then and there. That went double for the beat of wings that occurred with Ambrosia her Aerodactyl. Lord Groudon. No thanks. Not right now.
Disc the Metang floated along close to the ground at a moderate pace. While he (technically it or they, but for a personification of a computer, he felt oddly male) was technically flight trained and had gone up rather high before, after Juni had taken a fall from his back one time, they’d both decided it just wasn’t a good idea to go too high until he was evolved. That was ok right then, though, as they were not in any type of hurry— not really. Sure they needed to get there, but the pressure wasn’t on.
In Juni’s lap was a relaxed Quilava named Smokie. The latter was keeping a subtle warm heat radiating up off her back in an effort to keep Juni warm enough, and it was very much appreciated in this case. Disc, of course, didn’t appreciate the extra weight, but whatever.
It would be Disc who noticed something first, and then from Disc Smokie and then Juni. Hmmm?? Juni adjusted her glasses but could not fucking see for the life of her. “What is it?”
