• Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.

    Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.

    Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?

    Kimiko's song was a much-needed balm after the horror of the evening. Listening to it, Ridley felt the tight knot of panicked emotion in his chest start to uncoil. He eyed the shadow drapion's fallen form warily, but the fear and anticipation thrumming through his body was slowly being replaced...

    Ridley just barely managed to yank himself free of the floor in time to roll out of the way of the enraged shadow drapion. He flattened himself against the wall as it passed. The remaining pin missile spikes were a hotcold agony in his side. The rasp of his breath sounded horrifyingly loud to...

    Was that it? Is it over? "There's no way it's over," Ridley muttered to himself. He hesitated, caught between his desire to go over and take a closer look at the shadow pokemon and the small shrill alarm bell of self-preservation ringing in the back of his head. The skorupi lay there...

    On Steven's desk, near where the notebook had been, sat a lamp flickering with faint candlelight, as though he'd been reading late into the night. As someone who'd been doing the exact same thing, Ridley wasn't in a position to judge. The shadow skorupi hated light. The lamp's dim flickering...

    Was it the same skorupi he'd seen in Blaguarro? Could it be the same skorupi? It felt impossible to believe that it had somehow stalked them all the way back from Blaguarro, but that was less insane then Ridley's instinctive, kneejerk panic that one of his nightmares had somehow crawled its way...

    Ridley didn't realise he was sleeping until the noise woke him up. He'd borrowed a thick stack of books from the library, with the idea that if he wasn't going to be sleeping anyway he might as well put the time to use. At some point or other he must have drifted off, because the crashing and...

    "Of course I'm going!" Ridley said. "We barely know anything about the Witching Beasts so far. I have to be part of that investigation." Sure, okay, their first encounter with one hadn't exactly ended well for anyone involved, but Ridley wouldn't make those same mistakes again. If there was...

    "I've got no idea," Ridley admitted. "But whenever I think about it I remember the voice saying that they were afraid touching the shadow pokemon would make them like it. What if it's something like that? An infected one of whatever the voice is." He said, "Do you know if any of us have been...

    Anything weird? Well, yes, nightmares, obviously, but - - ah. That. "You heard it too?" Ridley asked. He wasn't sure whether he was relieved by that or not. On the one hand, that meant the whatever-it-was wasn't specifically targeting Ridley. On the other hand, that meant it was more likely...

    "Missingno's the term for a pokemon - or potentially a group of pokemon, given that its reported appearance varies - which appears off the coast of Cinnabar," Ridley started. "It's claimed to cause perceptual issues or even death in those who encounter it. It's already known that Cinnabar...

    "Eh." Ridley raised a hand and wobbled it from side-to-side in a so-so gesture. "I haven't met any of the well-known ones, but I spent a lot of time as a kid investigating urban legends. You'd be amazed how many cryptid reports are just ghost-types playing tricks, or people seeing a noctowl at...

    "Ah," Ridley said. It was easier to think about cryptids than about other people watching him get ripped up, but how did he explain the concept to someone who didn't know? Aware he was about to start lecturing, he began: "Cryptid's a term for pokemon which... might exist, but have not yet been...

    Ridley considered his potential responses to that and decided on honesty. "I like cryptids," he said. "I've been fascinated by them my whole life. I think it's vitally important that we all constantly challenge the limits of what we consider 'known'. I'd wanted to look into the Witching Beasts...

    "Well, it kinda sucked," Ridley admitted. He wasn't actually sure how much damage he'd avoided because the shadow charmeleon had been occupied with slashing up his disguise instead, but what he had taken was more than enough to make him miserable. "The disguise is just a distraction, I guess? If...

    Ridley had been... well, resting, mostly, or at least trying to rest. He thought he might have drifted off for an hour or two at some point, but such sleep as he'd achieved had been... ...fractured. He still hurt. Less than he might have expected, considering what had happened to him, but the...
