All: Oh crap.
-Maggie is oblivious to the buckling-
Maggie: -to Tagg- "Oh, if I wanted to do that, I could always look at fanart, I know how you feel about the fandom in general."
"And there's probably at least some art out there that gave you better abs than you actually have."
Silent notices something and looks around then curses under his breath.
"Uhm... Girls and Tagg? I don't want to be the 'stop having fun' guy but stop having fun! The bridge's about to crack!"
-and points to the bridge while Dintel and presumably Ana call us from the other side.
Algira -nuzzles Helios: <I don't really see the problem~>
-Grabs Maggie and runs across the bridge as it starts to break apart-
-Maggie is grabbed-
-She then starts to notice the bridge breaking apart as she is carried to the other side of the bridge-
-Her Pokemon that aren't already on the other side begin rushing there-
Algira flutters towards the group as they reach to the safe side; as they reach there, Dintel shows a couple of bolts he has recovered from the Ballista.
Dintel: <I can has found more treasure!>
"...Dintel now is [not] the time!"
Dintel tilts head then gives the bolts to Ana, still feeling proud of himself.
-We make it across just as the bridge completely crumbles into the chasm-
Kernel: <I'm regretting getting roped into this now more than ever.>
SleepyHead: <At least we all seem to have made it across fine.>
-Algira listens to Sleepyhead and Kernel-
Algira: <Well the problem is when they have to get out.>
-Sardonically to Tagg-
"You know... it is good to know the Alakagross kept other species in consideration when they designed their death traps. ¬¬" -- looks around -- "Well, I guess it's a one-way path now."
-And kicks a pebble the remains of the Ballista.-
-Puts back on my clothes, a noticeable hole having gone through them-
Well yes, at least they weren't racist in that aspect.
-Algira's nudging makes a part fall out-
Ana: <Ooh, what's that?>
-Examining the object-
Seems to be some sort of...miniature 3D printer.
Umbra: That was close...
Xavier: -inspecting the device- Interesting...
Maggie: "Huh. That's probably how they made those guards."
SleepyHead: <Wouldn't surprise me.>
-Listening to the comments-
"...Friggin' economies of scale." -- fiddles with his gear a moment -- "We should get going then. Hopefully we can survive until we examine the artifact."
????: <...Oh? That would be good.... ~>
-Silent turns around and sees [Sol] standing behind the group, just by the edge of the chasm. She is twirling her tail and munching on something.-
-Looking at the wide chasm then back at Sol-
"...H-how did you get here?"
Sol -looks puzzled: <Uhm... I'm a psychic cat? I just followed the path...>
Muddy: <Path? You mean the M&Ms?>
-Looks across the chasm and notices that the trail Silent put is gone-
<Um, Sol? Did you eat all the M&Ms?>
Silent meanwhile is trying to make sense out of how Sol arrived.
"...B-b-but the spikes of death!"
Sol -munches: <I'm a cat. Walked on the wall.>
Sol -munches: <I'm a psychic. Saw them coming.>
"...And the spheres and bots?"
Sol -munches: <I'm a cat. They ignored me.>
At this point Sol turns to Xavier or SleepyHead.
Sol: <...What part of 'psychic cat' has he trouble understanding?> -- twirls tail in exasperation.
-Listens to Muddy and swallows-
Sol -munches: <Ah yes, thanks for leaving some [lunch] for me!> -- nods, then purrs to Tagg -- <I was tired after exploring around with Mew.>
Well this expedition is going splendidly....
Muddy: <Looks like we're going to have to go even deeper.>
-Using Aura Sense-
There appears to be some sort of lift all the way at the end, we can probably use that instead of trying to go back the way we came.
SleepyHead: <No comment.>
Maggie: "Oh good, that means the flying mons won't have to ferry us across. Especially because Draca's the only one here I think who knows Fly..."
Sweetie: <You doubt me, my queen? I could ferry this whole group across!>
Well we could just recall everyone, but then there's all the humans that need ferrying.
Draca: <Perhaps in your dreams, drone.>
"Though to be honest it couldn't be so bad... besides, I haven't taken a ride on someone's Salamence since... let's see... forever." -- sads internally.
Algira -to Sweetie: <Good for you. All I can carry is Dintel and that with some effort, I think...> -- turns to Helios and flashes colors -- <But I'm sure you could carry one or two mons~>
-Dintel, meanwhile, takes the initiative and walks ahead not minding the danger much-
-Sol meanwhile is still sitting by the edge and looking at everybody-
Sol -after she listens to Tagg: <...But I said I'm a psychic cat! I memorized the path!>
Maggie: "Yeah, that would be easier."
"Though the lift is still the best option."
-Sweetie gives a slightly miffed buzz at Draca-
-Xavier blinks at Sol-
-Sol raises a paw as if wanting to consult something as she continues to talk to Xavier-
Sol: <Does it happen to you sometimes? That your Trainer seems to forget or not take into account what you are? I think, Chrome and you are kinda special... not that I want to mean anything bad… with that…>
Silent meanwhile grabs his stuff.
"Well then, at least in true ruins explorer fashion, we don't leave until we leave. You know what I mean." -- looks ahead -- "Dintel wait for us!"
Alright then, we have to go deeper.
Muddy: -Flicks a pebble at my head-
Muddy: <Don't do that again.>
-Maggie is now strangely tempted to make a more obnoxious reference deeper in the ruins if she gets the chance-
Maggie: "Alright, let's go, then."
While Dintel waits ahead, Silent and Sol follow Maggie and the rest of the group.
Sol -walks back and forth between Silent's legs: <...Hey, where can I learn quantumnuclear kinetics?>
"You what?" -- blinks -- "Uhm... first, probably in a university... not from books, it's a very specific subject; second... why would a cat like you want to learn that?"
Sol: <I just want to understand how some things [work], I guess.>
-thinks for a moment-
"Well, Sol, look, I don't think-"
Sol: <…Can I sign up at a university?>
Meanwhile Algira flutters around Helios while trailing the group.
Algira: <Then all those Murkrow started flying back and forth around the city. Can you imagine that?> -- buzzes in an amused tone -- <And Harriet said Shahinne wanted to go because she said she was a Murkrow, she's so cute...>
