    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?

    "Ah, apologies," Steven began, "I guess I meant a little of both. Who knows what kind of information Nolan will turn up, or how far the investigation in Blaguarro will take us. But if we find ourselves stuck, maybe it'll be worth looking in a place we might not have considered before." He shook...

    "So it does," Steven murmured, his eye drifting up toward the rooftops Bellatrix had been scanning earlier. He wasn't sure what she was searching for, but he had a feeling it was something not so readily found. "All we can do is keep looking," he said, turning his gaze back to Bellatrix. They...

    "No memories at all?" he chirped in dismay. "I'm sorry, that must be..." He trailed off, unsure how he was actually going to finish that statement. Frustrating? Terrifying? Heartbreaking? No matter how she felt at the time, Bellatrix seemed at peace with it now. Steven gave her a sympathetic...

    "Ah, thank you," Steven said, sounding sincere enough, though perhaps his heart wasn't quite in it. "I believe it's common enough, but..." He trailed off, and then the realization of what Bellatrix had said hit him. "You don't remember?" he echoed, suddenly flustered. "I'm sorry--" he was quick...

    "I..." Steven paused with a short hum, like he was considering what to say next, or perhaps how to say it. "Where I'm from, I'm somewhat of a public figure. I'm used to having to choose my words carefully." His eye drifted off to the side. "My father works in business. I... try not to get...

    At this, Steven chuckled. "It's alright. Everyone has a different way of showing they care. Not to say that you've come across as harsh, though!" he hastily added, his smile becoming sheepish. Then, as he regarded Bellatrix, something wistful came across his expression. "You remind me of a...

    "You almost make it sound like the Covenant is collecting humans," Steven said, his tone light with amusement. He regarded Bellatrix with curiosity. "As I told Nolan, it's premature to be joining anything at this point. We hardly know a thing about the organization, and it's not as if that...

    Steven's gaze fell to the dirt. He chewed over Bellatrix's words for a moment, painfully aware of the ones she chose in recalling Nolan's opinions. "Do you think anyone in our group answered the call to come here for the promise of power?" he asked, finally. "If what Nolan said was true...

    Steven's eye scrunched in disgust at Bellatrix's emphasis on 'work.' "Work that the good mayor was more than happy to sponsor," he said with a sour tone. "And cover up. For years." A flicker of sadness crossed his expression as he thought of Lucien. He'd known of his father's ledger, but did he...

    "A sandslash and an excadrill?" Steven thought for a moment, then shook his head. "No, I can't recall seeing anything about either of them in the mayor's ledger." The disappointment was clear in his tone. He hung his head with a heavy sigh. What had he accomplished with reading that ledger...

    Steven was beginning to fear he would be wearing a permanent frown for this conversation. 'A great first impression,' he mused with a frustrated sound. "Do we even know how to being searching for the Wolf? Has anyone other than Nolan seen him? I doubt we'd want to try approaching him ourselves...

    "Ah, right. During the daytime," Steven said with a nervous chuckle and a sheepish eye-smile. Of course they wouldn't have gone back at night. He felt a bit silly assuming as much. But all signs of his embarrassment disappeared when Bellatrix explained what they'd found. Admittedly, he hadn't...

    In the moment, a frown came over Steven's expression. "At this point I'm trusting his desire for information is strong enough to override any desire to cause trouble. I pray it's not too thin of a hope... Your idea of a a third party keeping watch is a good one, though," he said with a nod. He...

    Steven's claw had been pinched tight, expecting some kind of verbal lashing from the zorua, but it never came. A civil conversation was one he could handle right now. He relaxed a little, mentally chastising himself for taking that feisty rockruff's attitude too much to heart. "I... realize...

    Threadmarks: [Ch03] Getting on the Same Page

    The trek back from the Industrial Park had been mercifully quiet. Steven had assumed at least one of their group would have a few choice words for him, given what transpired in their meeting with Nolan, but they all had held their tongue. That didn't mean he couldn't still feel their gazes on...

    Steven tipped upright as Aige spoke, as if he was awestruck. "Don't sell yourself short," he said. "It seems like we've missed quite a lot." "It's good to know there are others here besides ourselves. Like yourself, I think I'll be fine with minimal food and lodging, though it sounds like a...

    "And I'm Steven," he said, a slight bob in his hovering, to round out the introductions. He had tensed for a moment at the roggenrola's joke, wondering if she too was as literal as their honedge companion. But then Aige giggled, and Steven's eye winked up into a smile. "It is as you said,"...

    Threadmarks: [Ch01] This town apparently *is* big enough for everyone: more heroes arrive

    The change of scenery was abrupt and drastic. The Night-Captain's salute faded out in the Travel Orb's flash of light, and in her place stood a larger-than-life limestone statue of an empoleon. Austere red sandstone walls were replaced with the hustle and bustle of a lively town's crossroads...
