Location: Mowloo (Team Alola, Day 15)
Inventory: Good Rod, Potion, Antidote x2, Kasib Berry
"...I-I'm...not...done.. Not...until...I get...back home..."
"Oh dats a dirty lick'n."
"Yep." It was pretty obvious there was no getting out of this fight, but between Randy's tenacity, Keanu's attack after all that time plotting up... whatever he was thinking of, and Marie's follow-up, things were sure to work out, right?
"Chasers. Very well. Let this be your test. Pass. Or. Die."
We're not Chasers though. It was a word the people in Adarid sure did like throwing around. People who challenged Legendaries to prove their might. It was something Yveltal had clarified. Nani, for one, was never much for fighting unless she had to. Challenging such mighty figures as Legends just seemed stupid. Something reserved for muscleheads with nothing better to do.
"It's decided...if this'll make me stronger...then I'll do it. Sign me up for being one of those Chasers...I'll fight however many I need to, just to rise to the top spot back on Alola."
As nice as it was that Randy was suddenly a lot more motivated to fight, it didn't change the fact that he wasn't actually doing much right now. Just being there all like "challenge accepted". At least he was in a convenient spot. Nani burst out into full sprint, moving directly toward Randy. As she got closer to Randy, the Mimikyu jumped up, planting her feet on the Incineroar's head and leaving him with a quick "Less talking, more not-dying," before jumping up a second time, legs glowing that same distinct pink again. If Yveltal was going to hover in the air where she'd be harder to reach, then Nani would just have to find other ways up there, right? And so, the Mimikyu swung her legs briefly up, then straight down in a kick attack aimed at the murder bird.

"D, Do you want some help with that?"

Well, the duel certainly was happening. It was probably too soon to call either one a likely winner. Probably. Kyouko wasn't paying that much attention, if she were being perfectly blunt. All the cheering from the crowds was making it hard to focus on anything really. She was only barely able to make out the returning voice of... Marisa? She was asking what she missed. Was there anything that she missed? The guy sitting behind them mentioned Kamen Rider falling into old habits. Was he a fan?
The cheering crowd was really getting annoying.
"I'm gonna go," she said, getting up to her feet. "It's too crowded and noisy in here for me. Enjoy your duel." With that, Kyouko started for the nearest exit. Surely there was something else on campus to do. Perhaps some mindless wandering would get her where she needed to go? Don't think; just let your feet decide.
Not like Kyouko had any particularly amazing options right now anyway.
Kyouko's wandering had brought her to another duel. It made sense. Today was the start of the school year. People were excited. And when people were excited, they were more prone to dueling. Some kid with white hair - he had that aura of someone Kyouko would want to punch in the face - and some other more normal-looking boy. The venue for this one was way less crowded, and not nearly as loud. In fact, most of the noise here came from the duelists.
“You were right. This duel does end this turn… But not the way you think! Activate trap! Double Down!”
Kyouko got closer as the duel came to its close, ending in a draw. Most of the audience was nothing special. However, there was one guy. Shockingly, Kyouko had actually encountered someone even taller than she was. Curiosity ensued. Was he a teacher? As Kyouko opened her mouth to ask this distinctly tall person if he was a teacher, the duelists exchanged some words after the duel's conclusion.
“This isn’t over, Midori. You better watch yourself this year.”
“Hey man, you could have done a lot better if you took me seriously from the getgo. It's your own fault that you held back until it was too late. Maybe next time you won’t be so quick to judge people.”
Perhaps as a result, a completely different question slipped out of her mouth. The one that she'd been thinking as the duelists talked. "So what's Snow White's deal? Not disciplined enough as a kid or something?"

"Hey no fair, I wanted to try next...! Are you guys ok?!"
<DO WE LOOK OKAY!?>
Even if he took a beating in the process - and Haruka meant like, a serious beating - Tyler had fought both of the enemies and triumphed. Physically though, he probably wasn't okay. Haruka, meanwhile, wasn't okay emotionally. So as a matter of fact, the answer to "are you guys ok?" was a resounding no.
“Here. Consolation prize.”
As if it would somehow make her feel better, Tyler tossed some sort of pearl that one of the enemies had dropped to Haruka. She caught it rather clumsily, and gave it a look. The girl briskly moved over to Tyler, and put the pearl down next to him. "Keep it. I want to yell at you later and I'd feel bad doing that if you gave me a present." With that, she returned to the group, just as Grendel was asking about what the rest of the party wanted to do now that they had three Persona users. That third one should be me though.
"Since we have three Personas, why don't we split up?"
"That might work, but--."
"Paul and Tyler can take a group down this hallway, and Grendel can take a group down the other back near the beginning. We'll cover more ground that way, and the smaller groups would help people... keep an eye on the more reckless people,"
"It's not recklessness," Haruka sharply retorted. "It's oppar... o... taking advantage of a good chance."
"I'm not sure about that. I'd normally suggest sticking together with all the Scooby Doo I've seen, but it couldn't hurt. Grendel's got a lot of experience it seems, so we can afford to split the pack. My only concern is how we would reach each other if someone is in danger. If Grendel gets hurt or Tyler and I get hurt, then what? Only Grendel knows how big this floor is. We might have a map, but there's no telling what's not on here. But we should still keep going. We're already headed this way. So unless you all really wanna split up, I'm gonna keep pressing forward."
Haruka looked at the map on her phone. The nearest enemy shadow was in the very direction Paul was going. She followed, to take a look. Red shadow. Those were the ones to try to avoid, right? As much as Haruka approved of her plan for force her Persona out, this probably wasn't the shadow to try it on.
"Tyler. Grendel. If we want that key we have to fight for it. When you're ready."
Haruka pointed south, the other way down from the split. "I'll go that way while you get the key." Then, with a much sterner tone, she continued "Do. Not. Follow. Me. Is that clear enough for everyone? Yes? Good." Without waiting to leave much room for argument, Haruka started south. This time for sure, she'd encounter an enemy shadow, summon her own Persona, and it would all be on her merits. Not someone else's idiocy.

"That's pretty spot on. I'm sure Omega Star has everything under control. She's boastful for a reason, right?"
"Yeah." As the ferris wheel continued along peacefully, Asuka looked at her phone again. The battle between Mike and Akira was only getting more and more intense. To say Asuka was impressed and invested in this fight would be an understatement! Akira was by far the strongest student in 1-A, and yet Mike was putting up such a fight! She watched on the phone screen as the two boys continued exchanging blows, and as Mike ran for the ruined pieces of his costume's helmet, despite how obviously in pain he was. Was there something important in his helmet before?
Mike picked up some sort of bottle. So Asuka wasn't the only one that thought of using some sort of drink to stay in a fight longer. But even with that drink, there was no way he had much fight left in him, right? It was looking pretty obvious that Akira had this in the bag. Even so, Asuka wanted to believe Mike would win this one. Judging by the look on his face, he certainly believed he could.
"You can do it, Rosenfield," she couldn't help but say under her breath. Looking to her peers who she'd joined on the ferris wheel, she told them "They're really going at it. It seems unlikely, but do either of you think Tomoaki might lose this one?" Asuka moved her phone to where it would be in better view for both Ino and Isami, in case they hadn't been watching the fight on theirs.

do you have any evidence of this? i find it a little hard to imagine myself, what a marvel concept.
Well yes, I conducted a very practical and scientific study on this. Out of 100 "volunteers" that I held a loaded gun up to, 99 of them said something to the effect of "I don't want to die". I'm not really sure what the last one said; he was deaf and I don't know sign language.
