Subject: [PW!] Arrival

Mithril-rama blinked sleepily as she waited in the Pidgeot
Express waiting room, now a familiar sight to her. The schedule may have been
for the flight to Viridian to depart at 7:45 am, but like all flights are known
to be, it's late. Sure, it's only been 6 minutes, but Rilli was getting
impatient. She wanted to get out of this stiff chair and onto something more
comfortable. Like a bed. Or Robert. Or a bed with Robert. Yes, that would be
nice. She yawned.
"Attention all passengers to Viridian City. Please report to gate 4 for flight
82F. Repeat, flight 82F is now boarding." Rilli narrowed weary eyes and slid
back into her state of semi-consciousness, tuning out the announcement like so
many other previous ones. Then she thought about it.
"Ohmigod!" She bolted up and to the gate. There wasn't a very long line, but
it still seemed to take forever. She simply zoned out again, shuffling forward
mindlessly. Eventually, she found herself on a Pidgeot, finally. But it was
another seemingly unbearable long wait before the actual take off. The
excitement soon wore off, and she leaned her head against the dense feathers of
the bird, and closed her eyes...
"Pijooo!" Rilli sat upright as she was abruptly jerked out of her dream state.
Through the gaps in the clouds, she could make out rapidly approaching details
of a city. The Pidgeot's descent was swift and smooth with experience.
"That fast?" Mithril-rama stifled another yawn and climbed off the large bird.
After squeezing with and through a small crowd of people departing the building,
she took her first (well, first deliberate) breath of Viridian City air that
day. (Gasp, cough) After turning around several times in an attempt to get
oriented, she pulled out the Poképedia and walked briskly towards the Pokémon
The Aquafraternal Fanart Corner
