disguise: bring it on

raptorial_bird in wingsofcolor

One way or another, I'm gonna find ya

Who: Kodachi (undercover, of course~), Garth, Team Sol Grunts, and anyone who wants to get involved.
What: Team Sol's gunning for the fossil that Garth stole from them! (what a jerk srsly)
Where: Around Apricot Gym.
When: Right now~ actually early afternoonish.
Why: Nobody steals from Team Sol! Plus it's a way for Kodachi to stretch out her new commander wings~

This was it. She'd only have one attempt to do this, and it'd have to work. She had been nervously awaiting a chance to prove herself in front of her bosses.. No, in front of her collegues. She knew her boss knew she had what it took, but the other commanders viewed her as a threat. An outsider.

Just because she was young didn't mean she didn't have experience. She was almost the champion a few years ago. Almost.. if it wasn't for the stupid brat that beat her with his stupid Pikachu.

Anyway, she had to stay focused. She adjusted the cap over her wig, one of a bright neon green color, and tried to ignore the way her purple contacts gave the world an odd purple sheen to them. Whatever. Disguise was a disguise. She walked up to Apricot gym, trying to peer inside the windows. "Hello? Like.. is anyone there?" A few knocks. The statement about him closing the gym couldn't have been serious.. right?


((OOC: I already mentioned this to Kody-mun but in case anyone else joins in I'll repeat it. I kindof want Garth to keep the fossil if possible. His reserch, on the other hand, is fair game and TMV says stealing it'll get people in Aki's good books.))

Garth really should, he noted to himself, consider organizing this room better some time. He understood where things were in the piles of paper and books but his trainers didn't, it made it impossible to ask them to go get things for him.

He finally found the notebook he'd been looking for and pulled it from the bottom of a pile, somehow manging not to topple it. The fossil was being kept in this small, dark room in the far corner of the large greenhouse that was his gym. He'd made arrangements to take a quick trip to Cinnabar in Kanto to have it restored but until then it was just another peice of information.

When he emerged and saw someone looking in through the glass he wondered why none of his trainers were dealing with her but a quick check of his watch ansewred his question. He'd been in there longer than he thought and they'd all have left to get lunch.

"Hello?" He asked, assuming the girl was a challenger and openning the doors for her. Hoppip chirped and waved her leaves around in greeting. "Can I help you?"
Ester was off to the side playing with, or at least attempting to play with, Parasect. She was trying to see if there was any way to get him to react to things of his own will rather then on Garth's orders. Still he wasn't and she was becoming more and more determined to show that there was a Paras in there.

Glancing over to ask Garth a question, she was suprised to see that he was over by the door and talking to some one. Ester looked over at Hoppip and tilted her head. "Hoppip, what's going on over there? Do you think we have a new challenger or something?"
"Oh, hi!" She shuffled a bit, trying to look like an inexperienced, awkward trainer as she shoved out her hand in greeting. "My name's Autumn! I'm here to challenge you for a gym badge!" She smiled, saccharine sweet, and inclined her head with a tilt as she glanced passed him. "Like.. are you alone? Aren't there usually gym trainers?"
"I see." Garth said, nodding and shaking the outstretched hand. "Unually there are, it seems most of them have left for lunch."

Hoppip had turned back to wave to Ester but quickly spun to face the challenger again, curious. She liked people.

"Normally you'd be expected to face gym trainers first but I suppose if can't be helped if they've all decided to leave at the same time. I'd be happy to accept your challenge."
'Autumn' smiled widely as she shook his hand. Good. Even less people to stand in the way. "Aww, what a shame. Well, I guess it can't be helped. When shall we start?"

She waved a bit at Hoppip, trying to keep the smile genuine.

(sorry for taking so long, this totally slipped my mind)

"Now is fine, if you're ready." Garth said, turning back into the greenhouse. There was a clear area just beyond the entrance with just grass, no other plants in the way. It allowed battles to occur without damaging the surrounding plants.
Out on one of Apricot's main paths, looking cheerful but unsure of herself, Autumn paused to admire the impressive hedges of some curious establishment.

"Look, Turnip," she said to the Hoppip nestled in the crook of her arm. "What do you suppose that building is back there?" She held her pokémon aloft so it could have a better look. "Don't you think it's too small for a gym? And it's certainly not big enough to be an estate of some kind. But check out this maze!"

The two gawked with interest, barely considering how touristy they must have looked.
