She clearly looked miffed at having mistaken Seth's identity. > > Seth could feel Aerie tugging at his arm, physically and mentally, but he > didn't budge. This was....interesting. Crystal narrowed her eyes again. The red jewel on her forehead glinted slightly. "What are you, exactly, and how is it you're related to James? You feel like a psychic Ditto." She then looked over at Aerie. "So do you, for that matter. Are *you* two related?" "No!" Seth and Aerie said instantly. Crystal raised what passed for an eyebrow. ((You sure?)) She asked Aerie mentally. (('Cause you feel really similar. Like...not siblings.... cousins. That's it, cousins!)) Aerie's face went red. ((WHY YOU--)) Without warning, she tackled Crystal. Or rather, she tackled and broke the bench Crystal had been sitting on, the Persian had teleported several feet into the air. "HEL-LO!" Crystal screamed. "I don't suppose you know it's a REEEEAAAAALLLY bad idea to tick me off right about now??" Aerie got up from the wreckage of the bench and glared up at the Persian. "And why's that?" Firecrest interrupted before Crystal could go berserk. "Charizard rizard char." What Aerie and Seth heard was: 'It's her time of the month.' Both half-Dittos blushed, even Aerie's temper subsiding. Crystal collected herself and landed somewhat gracefully on the ground. "So. You think you could answer my question of exactly how you're related to James, Seth?" <snippledy-dee of Maria's sig> Hehe, sorry this post's so short.... -- Lyssie Obssessive fan of Raichu, Mew, and James-sama "There really must be a society against cruelty to James." -- Maria (I agree! Only YOU can save James from Jessie's paper fans of death!) "I admit, I set him on fire once with my magic paper fan." -- Corynn "If you took a Mega Kick to the most sensitive part of your body, how eager would you be to jump up and run after a Pokemon?" -- James, from an IM roleplaying session "Yes, ma'am, I know everything but the answers." -- Peppermint Patty "Pretty mother, so graceful in the water. Too bad I have to kill you." -- Tentacruel, from one of my fanfics "Fungus Terpsichoreus Kawaiius!" -- Me "For some reason, I seem to be losing my liqui-ibrium!" -- James (well, how would YOU spell it?)
