A/N: Wow Han-non… welcome to the world of fanfiction, no? And if you see the date, I changed the names of the characters BEFORE(!) they were called by their English names. And this fanfic is supposed to be realistic as possible. I am a woman of science, not stupid random bullcrap. I like to think of Pokémon as being animals with abilities.
Read the date: 9-26-10… and when did BW come out? 3-6-11… not until 6 months later. And when did Prof. Juniper get her name? According to the revision history of "Prof. Araragi", not until DECEMBER 29, WELLLLLL after this fic was FIRST published! And Fennel didn't get her English name until around January 14! (This is according to the revision history of those pages on Bulbapedia).
And according to Bulbapedia:
"…are 649 known species of creatures that inhabit thePokémon world, however, it is implied that there are morewaiting to be discovered. […] Pokémon are shown to exist instead of animals in their world, although animals are also seldom seen in older media. While most Pokémon resemble animals […]"
Creatures, hint hint.
Point is: I can make up whatever the HELL I want to. It's fanfiction.
…Wow that was long and unnecessary.
"I am going to Sinnoh. I don't know when I'll be back in Unova, but I promise I'll still write in this journal."
The plane ride was going to be at least five hours. I didn't know how far away Sinnoh was, but I didn't care. This was probably the best thing I'd ever do! I looked out the window and saw miles of ocean with a few islands in between.
I decided to snooze…
Blood dripped from my eyes and nose. Shit, this again! I cursed. My limbs froze. I couldn't move. Blood pooled below me. My eyes glazed over. I couldn't see. I blacked out. No, no, no! I cried. What did I do to deserve this? I didn't do anything! No! I tried to scream but couldn't…
"NO! NO!" I screamed, squirming in my sleep.
"René!" A familiar voice said, shaking me awake.
"I-I can't sleep…" I sobbed. "It keeps coming back!"
"What keeps coming back?" Yanick asked.
"My dream…" I shuddered. I wanted to throw up. Everyone stared at me funny, as if I had seen a ghost.
"Tell me what happens…"
"'Kay." I gulped. I started to explain what happened, about how I would always end up in a pool of blood, how I wasn't able to scream or move. "That's it… That's all that happens. There aren't any people nor is there any landscape, I'm just on the ground."
Yanick put his hand on his face. "I can't make heads or tails of this."
"I wonder if it has something to do with me getting injured," Dad stated. I was still surprised he was able to speak.
"I-I've had the same dream…" Macy stared at me. "I wonder if it has anything to do with Saunders." She narrowed her eyes. Clay looked at us with concern. "Except it involves water…"
"Are you scared of drowning, per chance?" Clay asked.
"Yes… I guess you could say I am. I don't even like taking a shower by myself, just in case…"
"Just in case you fall down backwards and drown?" he seemed to finish her sentence. "I've fallen in the shower, but I admit to being very drunk. I woke up with a nose and mouth full of water." He placed his hat over his face in shame.
"I know, it sounds so stupid…" she sighed.
"No… I agree. I don't like taking a shower when I'm home alone either." I agreed. I looked around at the other people in the plane. I noticed a person in the seat two rows ahead of us. He had blond hair with a strange blue hair thing that looked vaguely like Klinklang, circling his head. He was also wearing a white lab coat and glasses. Resting on his lap was an advanced-looking book, about physics, The Advanced Physics Book, from the Smallest Atom to the Largest Galaxy. It looked like he was asleep, because his chest was slowly rising. A Lillipup was sleeping on his chest.
I wanted to talk to him, but then again, I didn't want to bother him. "Who is that?" I asked Yanick.
"He looks familiar; I believe his name is Colwyn Colrein, a self-proclaimed physicist. He doesn't even have a college degree, he taught himself physics."
"He taught himself physics? No way, that's amazing! Physics is one of the hardest sciences I've ever seen… It makes my brain hurt." My head spun thinking about that.
"Apparently, he also named a type of electromagnetic wave created by Klink and its evolutions, called the 'Colress wave'."
"'Colress', I wonder why it's called that?" I asked.
"I'm not sure, but it sounds like a portmanteau of his first and last name." Clay looked at him. I wondered how he knew about this guy. "He's an odd fellow."
"How did you know about him?" I asked.
"You see, one of his Pokémon was kidnapped… At first, I thought it was a pointless case, until someone always murdered his Pokémon."
"Then the case wasn't as boring as you thought, hmm?"
"Exactly. It got interesting. I'm happy to protect Pokémon as well as humans."
"Huh?" I noticed Macy wasn't sitting next to me. I looked over to see that she was tapping on Colrein's shoulder. The Lillipup perched upon his stomach growled at Macy. He never moved, except his chest rising. She pouted and made her way back.
"Sorry Macy…" Clay looked at her with a confused face. "He tends to dope up on so many drugs that he sleeps like a rock."
"A person like him shouldn't be doing that!" Macy pouted. "A scientist should never dope up on drugs!"
"Well, I agree with you, but really, it's his decision if he wants to or not." Clay looked at him pensively.
"He's really cute… I wonder if I could talk him into a date when we get off the plane." Macy's face turned red.
"Sorry Macy, I believe he has a boyfriend, last time I checked." He chuckled nervously. "Not that there's anything wrong with that." He nodded. "I'm sure you can still be friends, once you ask him, after he wakes up."
"What should I impress him with, René?" she asked. "My knowledge about biochem?"
"If you want to," I replied, laughing slightly at her enthusiasm. "I would wait until we got off the plane, what if he doesn't want someone bothering him right now?"
"Good point." She nodded, looking at him. It appeared that his mouth was open and he started drooling. He suddenly snorted, waking up. He picked up his book and started to read it again.
"Mr. Colrein…" Macy said hesitantly to him.
"Yes?" He looked up at her. "Who are you?"
"I'm Macy, I'm a biochemist."
I shouldn't be eavesdropping, but this is the only entertainment on this jet ride.
"A biochemist, huh? Please, just call me Colress; everyone seems to call me that." He had a smirk on his face. "Who are your friends over there?" he asked.
"That's René and her father, Sherwood and our friend, Clay."
He looked over. I smiled and waved at him.
"They seem like interesting people." His gold eyes stared into mine. "That Clay fellow looks familiar…"
Clay grinned sheepishly. "Howdy," he greeted.
"Ah yes, the INTERPOL officer, I remember him now. Some bastard tried to kill my Elgyem…" His Lillipup started to growl deeply. "I've been training this guy to help protect any data I've collected, as well as my Pokémon." He petted the puppy's head. "Please, sit next to me. I don't bite." Macy hesitated and sat down next to him. "How come you're going to Sinnoh?"
"Well, I've never been there and Clay said he would protect us, because someone has been threatening us lately…"
"Really? Hmm." He looked intrigued. "Maybe I could help you too?" he asked.
"Um… well, I don't know…"
I looked at Clay. He too had fallen asleep. I stretched and yawned, ignoring the two chatting. I closed my eyes and fell asleep.
By the time I had woken up, we had arrived in Sinnoh…
