Destiny is currently a stay at home mother with too much free time on her hands that allows her over imaginative mind wander into the void of unanswered questions which, more often than not, ends in a cracktastic catastrophe of a plot bunny.

Okay, this is going to be really long, and from now on, ignore every other run for Elliot. This is her official, canon run, anything previously posted about emerald is not canon. 

Emerald Notes

Story Start

LITTLEROOT TOWN

Elliot has been living in Littleroot Town for two years now. She’s just returned from visiting Silver in Johto where the two of them got into a nasty argument. Alessa has recently started the Sinnoh league challenge and Elliot is feeling restless in Littleroot. She needs to get out and away from her prying mother and overbearing/pretentious father. She needs to get back to what she loves, training and raising pokemon, and she needs to prove to Norman, once and for all, that she’s a competent trainer in her own right. She’s been pretty friendly with Birch and Brendan, even though she thinks the Prof is a bit accident prone/clutzy and Brendan can be an asshole sometimes.

When Elliot and her mom are watching TV they almost get into an argument about how Elliot has never really accepted Norman as her dad. Elliot decides to drop it, since she doesn’t want to have another huge argument so soon after the one with Silver.

She goes to visit Norman because her mother insisted and takes Mudkip with her to socialize him and get him used to traveling with trainers. He’s recently hatched. Norman can’t seem to realize that Elliot is a champion and that she actually doesn’t need pokemon to walk from littleroot town to petalburg. “I’m surprised you made it here all by yourself, Elliot.” “I’m not 5 anymore Norman!” When Norman gives Wally one of his pokemon and a pokeball to help him catch his own pokemon, Elliot is furious. And more than a bit jealous. She had waited for years for Norman to help her catch her first pokemon and he never showed any interest in wanted to teach her, even though she wanted it more than anything. But he would go and help a stranger? Elliot strongly resents Wally for this for much of the game.

When she is approaching littleroot town she comes across Birch being attacked by a Zigzagoon and uses Mudkip to drive it off.

*Mudkip Vs. Zigzagoon

Tackle                   Tackle

Tackle                   fainted

Mudkip won.

Birch can see that Elliot is antsy and decides to let her keep Mudkip for her journey.

*Received Mudkip from Professor Birch

                Nicknamed Kipper

                Male

                Level 5

                Hardy Nature

                Special Ability: Torrent

                Knows Tackle, Growl

At some point Elliot calls Alessa and talks to her about Norman belittling her again and her argument with her mom and Silver and how she thinks her and Silver broke up. Confesses to wanting to go traveling again to get away from everyone and clear her head and figure things out. Alessa warns her about how crazy Hoenn is but Elliot decides to go on the journey anyway. (Maybe in Roxanne’s town?)

Elliot leaves town not long after Birch officially gives her Kipper, a Pokedex, and some pokeballs.

She runs into Brendan on route 103 just outside Oldale town. He thinks he can teach Elliot what it means to be a trainer and how to be a good one. She’s already pissed about how pretentious Norman and Brendan’s cockiness doesn’t help. She takes a little too much pleasure and showing what a ‘real’ trainer looks like. “Oh you got a pokemon now? How about a battle? I’ll show you what a real trainer looks like.” “Oh really?”

*Kipper VS  Treeko

Growl                    Leer

“Did you happen to forget that I’m the current Champion of Kanto and Johto? Maybe you should keep that in mind next time you want to show me what a ‘real’ trainer looks like.”

*Captured Wurmple on route 101

                Nicknamed Rink

                Male

                Level 3

                Sassy Nature

                Special Ability: Shield Dust

                Knows: tackle, string shot

*No pokemon was caught on route 103, Kipper killed the Poochyena

*Level grind on route 103

After a series of victories, Rink became over confident and ran off after a fight on his own. By the time Elliot caught up to him, it was already too late. The wingull had killed him and taken off. Elliot becomes adamant after that, that none of her pokemon ever leave her side.  RIP Rink lvl 3-5

*Captured another Wurmple on route 102

                Nicknamed Barrel

                Male

                Level 3

                Timid Nature

                Special Ability: Shield Dust

                Knows: Tackle, string shot

Elliot was very hesitant to add a weaker pokemon to her team again, especially with how timid and nervous Barrel seemed to be. But she couldn’t find the courage to tell him no. He needed her too much. She’s very careful with him though and tends to baby him. It doesn’t help that he was pretty much a baby when she found him.

*Barrel evolved to Cascoon at lvl 7

PETALBURG

Elliot is just passing through town this time and only stops at the pokecenter to quickly heal and buy supplies before she’s on her way again. As she’s leaving though a man stops her and asks if she’s a trainer. He assumes though, by the cleanliness of her clothes that either she’s a rookie or just some kid with a pokemon. “I’m looking for talented trainers.” Elliot tries to tell him that she’s actually the champion of Johto and Kanto but he’s already gone. “…Alessa never warned me about this one…”

*captured Marill on route 104

                Nicknamed Alex

                Male

                Lvl 4      

                Gentle Nature

*Level grind outside Petalburg

*Barrel evolved into Dustox at level 10

PETALBURG WOODS

*Captured Poochyena in Petalburg Woods

                Nicknamed Duffy

                Female

                Lvl 5

                Impish Nature

                Special Ability: Run Away

                Knows: Tackle, Howl

*Wingull killed Duffy. RIP Duffy lvl 5-9

There may possibly be a psychotic wingull following Elliot around, picking on her pokemon. It always manages to get away before Elliot can get her hands on it for killing Rink and Duffy.

Ran into a Devon Corp Researcher looking for a shroomish when a team aqua grunt interrupted. He wants the researchers papers. Elliot gets roped into protecting him, since he’s kinda wimpy…Alex beat Team Aqua Grunt’s Poochyena with repeated water guns. The researcher gives Elliot a great ball as a reward.

RUSTBORO CITY

Elliot stops at the pokecenter a little bit and calls Alessa while her pokemon are being taken care of.

*Captured Poochyena on route 116

                Nicknamed Baster

                Male

                Level 6

                Lonely Nature

                Special Ability: Run Away

Elliot won and received the Stone Badge and TM39, Rock Tomb

As Elliot is leaving the gym she sees the same Aqua Grunt from Petalburg Woods leaving Devon Corp and the same Researcher chasing after him trying to get his goods back. After a moment of wanting to stay out of things that don’t concern her, she gives up and follows them up to route 116 and chases the Grunt to the Rusturf Tunnel. She passes by an elderly man who tells her that the Grunt took his pokemon, Peeko. Barrel took down the Grunt’s poochyena and Elliot returned the Devon goods to the Researcher and Peeko to Mr. Briney. Elliot received another great ball. The Reseacher then takes her back to Devon Corp to meet Mr. Stone, the President of the company. He gives her a Pokenav. He also asks her to deliver a letter to Steven in Dewford and the Goods to the shipyard in Slateport. “This isn’t going to become a habit is it? Because I’m not a deliver girl…”

Elliot runs into Brendan as she’s leaving town to go see Mr. Briney and check on Peeko, since she has nowhere else to go and none of her pokemon can learn cut. They register each other in their pokenavs then he requests a battle. Elliot decides to humor him.

*Elliot vs. Brendan

Gust                      Quick Attack

Gust

Gust                      KO

Elliot won.

Elliot freaks out over Brendan’s Wingull, because it’s the same one that killed Rink and Duffy. She hesitates to let Barrel battle it and contemplates just forfeiting the fight so she wouldn’t have to risk her team. Brendan is oblivious to how vicious his Wingull really is, even during their battle it was obvious that the wingull was aiming to kill with every move. Brendan insists that he was just over enthusiastic and didn’t quite know his strength since he had just been capture and hadn’t had much training. Elliot warns him that he needs to get rid of that pokemon, and fast, but he refuses to listen and Elliot leaves him to his idiocy.

She heads for Mr. Briney’s house, thinking she’ll check on Peeko to make sure he’s doing okay before possibly sending for one of her older pokemon from Alessa’s ranch to surf her to Dewford. Mr. Briney offers his assistance when she talks about what she plans to do next.

DEWFORD TOWN

Elliot has a quick look around town and finds out that the gym is a fighting type gym. She checks her emails from Alessa in the pokecenter. When she comes upon Granite Cave where Steven supposedly is, she stops and stares at it for a long time before calling her team over and spraying a repel over them all. She calls it a Zubat Repellant. “Because for the love of Arceus, I am not dealing with stupid Zubat.” Elliot just wants to deliver the letter to Steven and get out of there but when she gets to the second level she discovers that the rest of the cave is pitch black. And she has to get the HM Flash from Brawly, after she beats him. Elliot is not pleased.

*Captured Makuhita in Granite Cave

                Male

                Lvl 10

                Sassy Nature

Elliot won and received the Knuckle Badge and TM08, Bulk Up

After leaving the gym, Elliot teaches Barrel Flash so they can get through Granite Cave and find Steven.

*Alex evolved into Azumarill at level 18

Elliot finally finds Steven and gives him the letter. He thanks her and gives her TM47, Steel Wing, as payment. “You’re…Elliot right? Alessa’s little sister?” “Yeah, that’s me. And Alessa’s told me all about you. I expect you’ll be showing up all over the place won’ you?” “Oh most likely.”

*Level grind in Granite Cave

*Baster evolved into Mightyena at level 18

Once Elliot was done she found Mr. Briney and they set sail for Slateport. Along the way they passed a half sunken ship. “What happened there Briney?” “Pirates.” “Team Aqua?” Elliot got her answer when Peeko nuzzled closer to her owner. “These waters aren’t as safe as they used to be.”

SLATEPORT CITY

Elliot had thought to hang out on the beach for a little bit and let her team relax but they kept stumbling on trainers who want to battle. “So much for relaxing.” The team had fun though.

After finishing up their battles, the team headed for the shipyard, only to find out that captain stern isn’t there and they need to go find him. While they’re wandering around town they notice a bunch of Team Aqua grunts hanging around the Museum and decide to investigate. Because Team Aqua is never up to anything good. One of the Grunts in the museum sees Elliot and freaks out. Turns out he’s the same one she defeated in Rusturf Tunnel and he doesn’t want to have to deal with her again. He thrusts something into her hands before running off. “Okaaay.” She finds Stern upstairs and delivers the Devon Goods to him.

Before Elliot can leave though, Team Aqua grunts show up and attempt to take the goods from them. Baster takes care of the two grunts easily. Archie shows up after Elliot beats the grunts wanting to know what’s taking so long. “You’re being held up by a mere child?” “Hey! I’m 20. I’m not a child!” “Why do you keep interfering with us? Are you part of Team Magma?” “Who the hell is Team Magma? How many groups of eco-terrorists does this region have?!” “You want to expand the sea? ….I don’t suppose you’ve stopped to think about what an expanding sea does to the land we happen to live on have you?”

As she’s leaving the museum, Scott shows up and finally introduces himself. He saw team aqua fleeing the museum and finally realizes that maybe Elliot isn’t that bad of a trainer. So he registers her in his pokenav.

Elliot stays in town for a bit longer, taking time to relax on the beach and see the lighthouse. Stern also convinced her to attend a gala the museum is holding for some reason or other with him. She tried to get out of it, but her team peer pressured her into going and even into dressing up all pretty. At the Gala, word gets around pretty quickly that she’s the current champion of Kanto and Johto and that her older sister is Alessa, the Champion of Hoenn. The present media and pokemon enthusiasts mob her with questions and she’s starting to panic. The pokemon that she brought with her is picking up on Elliot’s panic and is becoming aggressive. Before anything can happen though, Elliot finds herself pulled out of the crowd and onto the dance floor by an older gentleman. She doesn’t know it at the time because he skirts around any questions about his identity, but it’s Maxie who has heard talk among the Aqua Grunts of a meddlesome girl who keeps getting in the way of their plans and has come to see her for himself and to judge if she’s a threat to own plans. While their dancing Maxie comments that Elliot looks familiar even though they’ve never met.

*as she’s being pulled onto the dance floor* “W-what are you doing?”

“You looked like you could use some rescuing.”

*he pulls her around into position and tries to start dancing, but she’s stumbling all over the place*

“I’m sorry, I don’t really know how to dance.”

“Your father never taught you?”

*Elliot looks away and with a bitter smile* “No. I never really had much of a father.”

“… Well, it’s simple…”

*once they’re done dancing* “I should be leaving now. Thank you.”

“For what? I should be thanking you for saving me from that mob.”

*maxie just smirks as he walks away*

Elliot asks around but never finds out who she was dancing with. She decides to leave Slateport the next day.

*Captured a Wingull on route 110

                Nicknamed Francis

                Female

                Lvl 12

                Naughty Nature

                Special Ability: Keep Eye

                Knows: Growl, watergun, supersonic

Elliot hesitated a bit before catching the wingull, but she knows from experience that you can’t judge a whole type based on one bad pokemon. Francis adds a bit of humor to the group and a sympathetic voice.

*Ran into Brendan on route 110, he wants another battle, Elliot wins easily. Received the item finder for winning.

Elliot always aims to take out Brendan’s wingull as quickly as possible so it can’t do any damage to her team. Her and Brendan get into an argument again over his obliviousness to his wingull’s true nature. He attempts to say that it’s actually Elliot who is the vicious one with how she relentlessly goes after his wingull until it can’t fight anymore.

*Lost Francis to a magnemite trainer on route 110 lvl 12-14

Elliot couldn’t switch her out fast enough

MAUVILLE CITY/VERANDANTURF TOWN

Got a bike from Rydel’s shop.

Elliot tries to go to the gym to find out what type the leader uses but runs into Wally. She’s not exactly happy to see him and feels that there’s no way he could be ready to battle a gym leader. She’s still jealous of how Norman helped him get his ralts and upset over her loss of Francis. She doesn’t think Wally really knows what it is to be a responsible trainer, something she’s starting to doubt even she knows. So she decides to teach him a lesson about being a trainer by accepting his request to a battle.

*Baster OHKO’s his Ralts with bite.

“You’ve got a lot to learn if you want to be a trainer, kid.”

Elliot may have been a bit harsher on him than is strictly necessary.

Scott saw the battle and expresses his enjoyment of how harsh she was. Elliot realizes that she probably went too far and decides to go visit Wally in Verandanturf to apologize.

*Captured an Oddish on route 117

                Nicknamed Damian

                Male

                Lvl 13

                Relaxed Nature

                Special Ability:  Chlorophyll

                Knows: Absorb, Sweet Scent

Damian can learn cut, which greatly pleases Elliot

*Take on the Winstrate family

                Nearly lost Barrel to the Victor’s Taillow

                Lost Baster to Grandma Winstrate’s Meditite’s high jump kick.

*RIP Baster Lvl 6-24

This loss hit Elliot much harder than the previous three. She didn’t have much time to get to know them but she’d had Baster for 18 levels and had been through 2 gyms with him. She really struggles with this loss and her self confidence takes a huge hit. She goes to visit Wally after burying Baster and talks to him about how having a bond is a great thing, a lot of trainers don’t have that, but there’s more to it. There’s a certain level a maturity a trainer needs to have to be able to cope with the pressures of being a successful trainer. She apologizes for being so harsh, but she feels that Wally isn’t ready for taking on the League Challenge. He’s still too naïve to properly handle it. And she wouldn’t wish the pain of losing a friend on anyone. (she’s probably playing with Baster’s collar as she talks to him….there might also be some tears…)

It occurred to me that I went on a three post rant about Prophet and making her character yet I never posted anything I wrote for her. Well....there wasn't really much to post. But after Auld Acquaintances aired earlier today, I couldn't avoid the drama/angst for this pairing. What can I say? I feed off the stuff. 


 Prophet was perched on the arm of Kaldur’s chair watching the team interact with Speedy. The teen had recently been released from the medical and had already been dragged all around the mountain. Now they were all sitting in the rec room laughing and joking and having fun and generally getting to know one other again. She was trying to approach the situation with an open mind, to give Speedy the benefit of the doubt, to get to know him. But it was odd seeing Roy’s face so happy and carefree. Speedy was so much more rambunctious than Roy and quicker to join the friendly squabbles between Robin and Kid Flash. It was unsettling for Prophet and she began to wonder just how this Speedy compared to Roy.

He obviously lacked Roy’s serious stoicism and quick temper that helped him get things done. Where Roy was quick and to the point with his speech, Speedy was prone to letting his mouth run and say things that would embarrass him, not unlike Kid Flash. The younger red head was childish and immature, which Prophet assumed could be attributed to his age while Roy would never be caught in a wrestling match over the last of M’gann’s chocolate chip cookies. But the differences weren’t just in their personalities.

Speedy was almost sickeningly thin and frail. He would require months of physical therapy just to build the stamina to walk properly again, let alone hold a bow and arrow. Kid Flash and Robin had taken turns pushing him around in a wheelchair for the duration of their tour of the mountain. Prophet had seen Roy go three days straight without sleep and still be able to shoot an arrow straight. She had sat in the gym with him, keeping him company while he lifted weights to keep himself tone. She knew he would have never willingly sat in a wheelchair and let people push him around. He was far too proud for that.

In the end, Prophet came to one conclusion, Speedy just couldn’t compare to Roy.



She tried to smile the same way she had several months ago when she’d first introduced herself to him, she really did. But Speedy had turned to her and flashed a smile- no not just a smile, that smile, the one she’d seen on Roy countless times when he was being sweet or flirting- and her heart had seized up so hard it made her chest hurt and the back of her eyes burn with salty tears. Prophet barely registered the concerned look- how many times had she seen that exact expression on his face when the team returned from a mission?-  before she shoved her way out of the group of people around them and fled the room, fully aware of the many worried looks following her out.  




He had left suddenly and without warning, leaving behind everything except his bow. No goodbye, no indication of when he’d return, and no way of getting in contact with him to at least make sure he was still alive. Prophet had understood why he left; she really had. He needed to find himself, to figure out what made him stand apart from the original Roy Harper. But understanding didn’t ease the heartbreak.






“Hi, I’m Prophet,” she smiled up at the taller red headed teen as she introduced herself.

He had barely spared her a glance out of the corner of his eye and if it weren’t for the rest of the team surrounding them, he probably would have left it at that. Instead he nodded his head at her, “Red Arrow. Nice to meet you.”

Prophet’s smile didn’t waver as he stalked off toward the mission room. The short, gruff reply hadn’t fazed her in the least. She had a good feeling that he’d warm up to her eventually and she could wait for that.






“I can see why my clone would have been attracted to you. You’re cute.”

Prophet had been in the middle of making cookies for everyone when Roy- Speedy­- had unexpectedly broken the silence of the kitchen with his comment. She had paused in the middle of mixing the dough and turned to look over her shoulder at the teen sitting at the table.

“What?” she asked, not sure if she had heard him right.

He was supposed to be reading through a packet of information the League had given him to help him catch up on the last three years. Instead he had his chin propped in his newly attached prosthetic palm watching her bake with that cocky little smirk firmly in place. It was an expression she had seen on her Roy’s face plenty of times but it was different on Speedy. His whole attitude was different and the more she got to know him, the more Prophet began to dislike him.

Speedy shrugged, “I was just saying I can see why he liked you. If I think you’re cute then some cheap knock off is going to think so too, right?”

“Don’t talk about Roy like that,” Prophet snapped angrily as she sat the bowl in her hands down on the counter to pull out the cookie sheets. Her patience was quickly running thin.

“You mean me or the clone?” his smirk widened into grin as if this was sort of sick joke. He was the only one laughing.

Prophet slammed a cookie sheet on the table in front of Speedy. “And stop calling him a clone,” she hissed. “You make it sound so derogatory.”

“Well it’s what he is.”

“That doesn’t make any less a human being. It doesn’t mean he’s substandard.”

“But he is. He’s an imitation of me. I’m better and always will be because I’m the original. He’ll always be trailing after me, trying to get out of my shadow. It’d be better if he just didn’t exist.”

By the time the last word had left his mouth, Prophet’s open palm had connected painfully with his cheek. Speedy slipped in his chair a bit but quickly regained his balance and met her furious glare with one just as angry.

“What the hell is-“

“Don’t,” Prophet cut him off before he could finish. “Don’t you ever talk about Roy like that. He’s a better hero and a better person than you’ll ever be. You’re the one that needs to work on getting out of his shadow.”

She snatched the bowl of cookie dough off the counter and threw it in the fridge without bothering to wrap it up before stalking out of the kitchen. She paused at the door and looked back to scathingly remark, “And one more thing. You owe that ‘imitation’ your life. We would have never found you time”

So I started a valentines challenge, I probably won't finish it in time for valentines this tuesday but I'm going to try. I'd like to make all the prompts connect together and maybe show the developing relationship  between Hiei and my oc, Reno. I'm pretty sure that Puppy Love is going to be chronologically first, even if it isn't the first prompt. Only...I've got two versions and I like them both. The second version probably fits my ideas for the rest of the prompts best but I thought I'd share them both here. 

Challenge: 15 Valentine’s Day Clichés

Prompt 8: Puppy Love version 1

Fandom: Yu Yu Hakusho

Pairing: Reno/Hiei

Words: 418

Rain pounded against the windows and roof, echoing around the room. Just about everyone had congregated in the one area since the weather prevented any outdoor activities. Reno had claimed the most comfortable chair in the room by threatening to force Yusuke and Kuwabara to perform humiliating acts if they dared to tip her out of it. She was currently curled up in the seat like a cat (a habit she had picked up from Sari no doubt) and was sleepily watching Kuwabara attempt to beat Yusuke at a video game for the twentieth time that day. Every time it looked like he was going to win he would turn to Yukina and brag about his skills, only to have Yusuke sneak in a combo move that would secure the detective’s victory. It made Reno giggle slightly how oblivious Kuwabara was to the world around him when Yukina was in the room. And the moment she left the room, he was on her heels like a lost puppy asking where she was going and if she needed any help. It was cute.

Reno rolled onto her back and uncurled slightly to hang her head over the armrest and look at Hiei, who was sitting on the windowsill only a few feet away. She waited, silently, until he finally rolled his eyes and looked at her.

“What?”

“Why don’t you act like that?”

He gave her a blank stare, “Like what?”

“Like Kuwabara,” Reno said, slightly annoyed that Hiei was making this so difficult.

“You want me to be an idiot?” Hiei deadpanned.

Reno sighed, “No. The way he follows Yukina around everywhere, why don’t you do that?”

He glanced up in time to catch Kuwabara trail his sister back into the room, still fawning over her and making a complete fool of himself. He turned back to Reno, eyes narrowed in irritation that she would ever compare him to that oaf. “I’m not an idiot who makes a fool of myself.”

“It’s not stupid,” Reno rolled her eyes this time. She knew she had some skewed ideas about relationships, but she was pretty sure that when you liked someone you were supposed to at least act like you did. “It’s cute and adorable and sweet and it’s what you’re supposed to do when you like someone.”

“I’m not catering to your delusional whims,woman,” Hiei snapped and turned back towards the window.

Reno curled back into her ball with a huff and went back to watching Kuwabara and Yukina.

Prompt 8: Puppy Love version 2

Fandom: Yu Yu Hakusho

Pairing: Reno/Hiei

Rain pounded against the windows and roof, echoing around the room. Just about everyone had congregated in the one area since the weather prevented any outdoor activities. Reno had claimed the most comfortable chair in the room by threatening to force Yusuke and Kuwabara to perform humiliating acts if they dared to tip her out of it.

It made Reno giggle slightly how oblivious Kuwabara was to the world around him when Yukina was in the room. And the moment she left the room, he was on her heels like a lost puppy asking where she was going and if she needed any help. It was cute.

“They’re so adorable,” she giggled to herself.

Hiei, who was sitting in the windowsill not far away, heard her comment and turned to see what she was giggling at. He glanced up in time to catch Kuwabara trail his sister back into the room, still fawning over her and making a complete fool of himself. He couldn’t see what was adorable about that. Reno giggled again when the oaf accidentally pulled a muscle while posturing and needed Yukina to heal it.

“What are you giggling at?” Hiei snapped at Reno.

Reno rolled onto her back and uncurled slightly to hang her head over the armrest and look at Hiei, “Kuwabara and Yukina. It’s so cute how he follows her like a lost puppy.”

The fire demon scoffed at her comment, “That buffoon is making a fool of himself and he’s too idiotic to notice.”

“It’s called puppy love, Hiei,” Reno informed him with a roll of her eyes. “It’s what happens when you really like someone and you tend to be oblivious to how silly you look. That’s why it’s so adorable.”

“Only a weakling would find a display like that endearing,” he sneered.

Reno flipped over so that she was sitting upright in the chair, insulted by Hiei’s weakling comment. “I am not weak,” she hissed angrily (another habit she’d picked up from Sari). “You haven’t seen me in a real fight yet, so you have no way to judge my strength.”

“I can sense your spirit energy and it’s lower than the idiot’s,” Hiei informed her. “And I’ve seen your training sessions. The cat coddles you.”

“’Coddles’?!” She was pissed and her rising vocal levels were drawing the attention of the rest of the room. “Sari doesn’t even know the meaning of the word ‘coddle’!” Reno vaguely recognized Sari’s indignant denial of that statement but ignored it. “If I were weak, Sari would have bred me like a dog with the strongest person she could find for the bloodline and dumped me on the streets to fend for myself once she had the kid! She doesn’t tolerate weakness.”

“Doesn’t change the fact that you are a weakling,” he derided her one last time before turning back to the window.

Reno mimed strangling him in frustration before stomping out of the room in search of something to destroy.

How It's Gonna Be

Add to Memories Share
Adorable Hiei

Just a quick little drabble about when Sari adopts Reno. Sari belongs to Silvercrestwolf while Reno is mine. 

Sharp golden eyes darted from the road to the rearview mirror for the twelfth time since getting in the car. It was slightly unnerving how the little girl in the back seat never seemed to blink as she stared at Sari’s reflection in the mirror. Even more unnerving was the lack of emotion in Reno’s dull brown eyes and slack face. She just sat there, staring with a forgotten notebook filled with messy doodles in her lap and pencil in her hand. Sari shook it off. She had seen her fair share of traumatized humans over the centuries; played unwilling therapist to far too many children that had seen worse things than grown adults.

The words of the woman fostering more kids than she could handle floated back to Sari.

 “She’s an odd one,” the woman had said as she twirled her index finger around her temple to indicate that she really meant crazy. “Just sits in her room all day, drawing these horrid little drawings and hardly speaking to anyone. The other kids were creeped out so I had to give her a room to herself.”

Sari had wanted to gut the woman. Typical ignorant human that had no idea what she was talking about. She would have been a blubbering mess in a mental institution if she had seen what Sari suspected Reno had witnessed. It was a wonder the kid had gotten away with her life at all.

“Are you my new mommy?” Reno finally broke the silence and drew Sari from her musings.

The cat demon eased on the brake and brought the car to a halt at a red light before twisting in her seat to face the six year old that was now in her care. “Let’s get this straight now, kid,” Sari started. “I’m not your mom. You’re not my daughter. You’re my tool. I’ll feed you, clothe you, and keep you safe, but only because I need you. But once you’re old enough to fend for yourself that’s what you’ll be doing. See, you’re the last of your family and I wasn’t about to let something that important to me rot in this fucked up foster care system. So don’t expect lovey dovey feelings and family bonding time in my house, kid.”

She’d half expected the waterworks to start halfway through her harsh explanation of how things were going to work from here on out. Maybe some cringing and depressed sighing. But Reno had just mumbled an “Okay” like she had expected something Sari to say that and went back to her drawing as the light turned green.
