"Off to the park they go!"
___

Specter: Certainly.
___

Steven: Is there anything we can do that would let her sing without having the unwanted side-effect of putting people to sleep?
___

"It appears her fears were simply paranoia."
-Off to the park!-
---
Oui: "Why don't you wear something lighter than that armor?"
---
Mash: "I don't know..."
---
Aya: "Time to relax, Aya..."

-The gost of her mother observes her-
-who is she saying hey to, me? :V-

-what to do....-
-To the bull-
---
-She went to see Merlin, who is chilling by the shore-

-The gost of her mother observes her-
"Which Amethyst happened to be at along with Peridot. Steven said he'd be coming soon as well."
___

Specter: Because there's not much under it besides an undead shell...and bones.
___

"Someone in the group surely has access to such magic..."
___

"How long until she greets her?"

-same with the Gyarados-
"They kept swimming for quite a while."

"The Milotic hoped she could make the Gyarados a little less nervous."

"No one nearby except those random businessmen, who were simply part of a joke lol."

-he's getting more comfortable as he swims-
"Which she was happy to see."

PAGE 420! -airhorn-

:V

Chen: "There are many mischievous demons, but none of them are really bad people!"
---
Iri: "Yeah! I was expecting her to be the last after you"
---
Semiramis: "Yes, you're right..." -Pets plant-

Sieg: "I think I'll try..."
Rook: "Indeed..."
---
Camilla: "W-What?"

Hinoka: -snickers at irony of the teaser getting teased-
---
-AWWW-
---
Jaune: "Alright,"

Greg: Far as I can tell, it's being set up by, and starring a duo named Elizabeth and Ranamon, I think. Plus this little pink puffball. I don't know her name. Oh, and to answer your question, Mash, I wash cars at It's a Wash. I've had the job long before Steven was even born.

"Elizabeth's improved on her singing work, but a concert featuring Jigglypuff? That can't be good news..."
Frank: "..." -gives him ear plugs- "You'll thank me later."

(I hope no one made that joke...)

-MORE HUGGING-

Greg: ...The situation is that bad, huh?

"Has already found out that Jigglypuff puts people to sleep with it's singing by this point. He still wasn't sure just how potent at it that it's singing really is, until now."

"Meanwhile, what was team RWBY up to? As well as the Links?"

-he uses Splash!-
-seems that habit hasn't been broken yet :V-
"It wasn't all that long ago that he evolved, so yeah, I can imagine that lol"

"The splash soaked her face."

"She stared silently for a few seconds before laughing."

-meanwhile, despite being a Fire type, Whiskers has no problems with the beach-
-probably because Incineroar are native to the Alola region-

-Coming out from the dressers, a pair of Japanese supernatural women stepped into the beach wearing swimsuits-

-Those being Tamamo no Mae and Kiyohime-

-The kitsune wearing the same swimsuit her Lancer counterpart used to have-


-And the same can be said for the dragon princess, even using her Shapeshifitng skill to turn her eyes red and hair white-


Tamamo: "Ready or not, world, here comes a trio of beauties that live for love, mikon!"

Kiyohime: "A trio of maidens ready to take on anything in the name of affection~!"

-The two waited for a second until they realized the third member of their trio has yet to come out of changing-

Kiyohime: "Osakabe, is everything okay?"

Osakabehime: "Just leave me be! I don't want to go out..."

Tamamo: "Why?"

Osakabehime: "Because this outfit exposes too much! And I'm a bit pudgy..."

Tamamo: "Hmph, that is nonsense and you know it"

Kiyohime: "Come on, you are very pretty and cute, show the world! Maybe someone will even gain interest in you!"

Osakabehime: "... Y-You promise you'll cover for me if anything happens?"

Tamamo: "What are pen pals for?"

Osakabehime: "A-Alright..."

-Thus the yokai came out looking like this-


-Down to the fox ears and tail, her embarrassment being too much to bother to hide those with magic, revealing her true nature as a second kitsune-

Kiyohime: "Hey, your features are out..."

Osakabehime: "S-S-S-Sorry Tamamochi! I-I can't concentrate on keeping them hidden now!"

Tamamo: "Why? I have been clear with you before I don't mind them"

Kiyohime: "Besides, you look adorable in them!"

Osakabehime: "... Adorable?" :nervous:

Tamamo: "Yes, you're always cute even with your lifestyle"

Osakabehime: :redface:

Tamamo/Kiyohime: "Awwwwwww~"
"It clearly is."

-The two of them get him a pink buttoned shirt with a flower pattern on it-
---
-But everyone's ears...-

-Is Aya miles aways from everyone?- :p
-Monika petting him more-
So cute...


-but what if he doesn't feel like it...?-
Ishtar: "He's meant to be threatning, not cute!"

Hinoka: -snickers at irony of the teaser getting teased-

Jaune: "Alright,"
Chen: "Hey, a fairy! Hi fairy!"

Cirno: "STRONGEST!" -Tried to freeze a demon, said demon was annoyed and swallowed her-

Chen: "... It's not always like that here" :lol:
---
Iri: "Sure thing, you look like the type that upon seeing her sister being with someone would be curious and eventually end as the older sister type of the harem that would wear skimpy clothes freely to see his reaction" :p
---
-Guess that's it with them for now-
---
-But before they could go-

Kyu: "Hey Champion!" -Was wearing a swimsuit made of leaves-

Peridot: To think I couldn't ride that without my limb enhancers...I wouldn't meet the minimum height requirement.

Steven: But you do have them, so you could!

Peridot: And I did! It was terrifying at first, then absolutely fun! It's just...I've been thinking lately, what if I didn't have them? I've almost lost these devices several times What if I never got them back? What if it happens again, and it ends up being the one time I lose them permanently? That's all it would've taken, and not only would I be missing out on this recreational thrill machine, I...wouldn't exactly be well-suited for combat. That's the trouble with being an Era 2 Peridot, I guess.

Amethyst: Lighten up a little, Peri. We're just here to have fun.

Peridot: Right...

"That's fair."

"The Milotic actually did a double-take; it took a few seconds for her to realize what she just said. And that she really meant it. She shyly hid part of her face behind her fan-like tail once that realization hit."
