• 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?

    Alola, huh? Noted. Laura nodded with interest. Depending on how long a 'little while' was, that (and her time on Forlas) would explain why Laura wasn't totally sure of the accent. She wondered how her accent read to everyone else... Laura shrugged, with an uncertain grin. "Pretty sure they...

    Laura chuckled sheepishly. "Guessed from the name – your accent isn't as obvious as you maybe think it is? I guess we're both from similar Earths – I'm Galarish, went on a school trip to Kalos once when I was a kid. Don't really know any Kalosien or anything, just je ne parle pas la Kalosien...

    Laura blinked, trying not to stumble mentally as she worked to reconcile Odette the performer, Odette who raged in combat, with Odette the socially awkward. "I can strike up a conversation?" she found herself saying. It was kindof true – it was anxiety rather than the words that made it hard...

    Laura flinched as something brushed her shoulder, and looked around to see Odette and her Mawile maw looking as uncomfortable and awkward as Laura usually did. Kinda odd, really – Odette was loud and brash and all the rest, wasn't she? "No problem," she said, reflexively. "Hey, um. Everything...

    Tlalli nodded, and stood from her seat as Isidora did. "I'll gladly show you to our records, Ms Sneasel. Whatever we have available, I hope it shall be useful to you. Please do ask me your questions when they come to you – it is entirely my work to do!" The Gliscor smiled again, and lifted...

    Tlalli nodded sympathetically, and hummed a few notes to herself. "The Rangers have each other's back," she said, echoing herself. "If you want direction and allies, you could do worse. I can't recommend any better, though you could try your luck with the Obstine monks, I suppose. The Wardens...

    "Since you came here? To this library?" The librarian sounded like she was making a joke. Tlalli rested her cheek on one pincer and smiled warmly. As warmly as a Gliscor could manage, anyway. "You sound like you are asking for advice," she remarked, gently. "Lots of 'mon come to Frontier Town...

    Tlalli laughed, softly. "It's a fulfilling job. It's challenging, honest work. It takes you from place to place, seeing many people and places. If you have the right temperament, you will earn the respect of common 'mon. You will grow strong, if you value that. And of course, there is little...

    Tlalli clicked her tongue and dipped her head to one side. "The Soja' is only governed at all in the most limited way, and then usually by local authority. The Commonwealth has very little control even in Commonwealth towns like this one, let alone in places like Sunward or the northern...

    "Is it ever so, I am proud," beamed Tlalli. Then, when Isidora asked her follow-up question, she smiled with a sigh. "If we're lucky, and times are prosperous, those gifts I mentioned do a great deal to help. Otherwise, we get by subsisting on dungeon delving. This doubles as practical training...

    Tlalli looked a little impressed, raising her brows and nodding slowly. "Depends what you mean by 'the desert around here'. The Soja' rangers cover parts of the wider region, extending from the northern tundra to the old border with the Protectorate in the south at Bedaurejo, and from the west...

    Tlalli gave Isidora an indulgent smile, and nodded over to one of the rest areas dotted around the Archive. "We can sit more comfortably if you prefer?" Then, as the Gliscor moved to walk slowly towards the seats, her expression shifted to a more serious mood. "A 'ranger' is anyone who...

    "You are a shy one, hmm?" commented Tlalli, with dry amusement. "Relax, girl. Whatever answers you need, I am sure I can sort you out." Tlalli's age was hard to determine, given her species, but something about her voice suggested the kind of mother who wasn't easily thrown off her footing by a...

    Tlalli's expression brightened a little at the Sneasel's reaction, then... was that a hint of pride in her eyes when the Rangers came up? "Well, I can certainly give you some reading material if you like," began the Gliscor, her posture relaxing, "or I can talk to you from personal experience –...

    Gliscor Tlalli arrived swiftly, dropping from the second floor of the Archive without hardly hitting the ground. She clearly had plenty of skill in controlled flight. The airborne scorpion smiled at Isidora, her eyes creasing as much as possible while her mouth remained closed – perhaps she was...

    Laura jumped as the book slammed shut, her heart immediately battering her sternum. "W-what...? Isidora??" Her ears pressed back against her head and she shrank into herself. She could ask why Isidora was so angry, she wanted to know, but— ...What if that just made everything worse? So she...

    Laura laughed awkwardly. What was...? "Yeah, I'm a... Well, I mean—" Oh. Oh, no. "I'm a Meowth right now, but that's new for me. Until we all got here, I was... y'know. Human." And Isidora had a problem with that, for whatever reason. Could be anything. Humans existed in her world and they...

    Electric lighting, automobiles and telephones were cutting-edge in Luctemar, as best Laura knew. Certainly out in the frontier. Isidora's world was sounding more and more similar to Forlas... "Noble, huh?" Laura laughed, feeling ashamed. "My parents are, uh... middle class, I guess? I, um. I...

    Laura wrestled with embarrassment at jumping to conclusions in her effort to show engagement, and tried to take in as much as she could. She came away with too many questions to remain embarrassed. A whole world's history to get stuck into... "I'm, uh..." – a university dropout – "I'm not a...

    Laura listened with fascination, although also a little trouble keeping up. As undirected rambles about huge topics went, it was actually fairly coherent. She knew from experience what a really messy infodump looked like... "Okay, you've got politics that sound pretty much like medieval to late...
