Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Prism Globe Saga @sylph_of_eons
Light Approaching

It was nighttime on the Sand Continent. The sky, as usual, was clear and decorated with brilliant white stars and the glow of the full moon. The Aeria Temple was cast in a golden hue from the light of lit lanterns. Most of the pokemon that were still out were giving each other well wishes before heading out to bed.

Flygon himself received many of these well wishes as he glided his way down the temple halls. Unfortunately, Flygon was in a bit of a hurry. It’s not often he receives a summon from the Voice of Life, afterall.

Flygon landed on his feet in front of a door hidden away at the back of one of the buildings on the temple ground. Most acolytes at the temple would be surprised to see the Voice of Life’s quarters hidden in such a remote place, but Flygon had long been accustomed to Hydreigon’s eccentricities.

Flygon ratted his claws rhythmically against the wooden door.

“Come in!” A cheerful yet raspy voice replied.

“Pardon me, Naran.” Flygon opened the door and dipped his head respectfully. “I hope I am not too early.”

“Of course not.” Hydreigon replied, smiling at him warmly, sitting in the center of the room. “You are always right where you need to be, Ajax.”

“Of course.” Ajax sputtered slightly, closing the door behind him with his tail. “Why have you summoned me?”

Hydreigon smiled with a glimmer in his dark eyes. “Do you recall a conversation we once had regarding a treasure called the Prism Globe?”

Ajax blinked, taking a moment to try and recall what Hydreigon was referring to. “Um-” Suddenly, Ajax recalled once seeing reading about such an object recorded in one of the archive’s old books, a book that happened to be placed next to where Hydreigon was sitting. “You mean from the book?” He asked hastily, gesturing to the book with his long tail.

Hydreigon grinned, baring his point teeth. “Yes! Exactly!” He quickly bent to grab the book with his hand-heads and gave it to Flygon.

Ajax took the book and flipped to the page Hydreigon bookmarked. “The Prism Globe?” He asked, looking at the picture of the multicolored orb surrounded by a very familiar golden band.

“The Tree of Life has told me we should try to find it.” Hydreigon replied. “I don’t truly know why, but I know better than to argue with the will of the planet.”

Ajax jerked his head slightly in response to this, staring at Hydreigon with wide eyes. “The Tree of Life did what?”

“Well of course.” Hydreigon replied casually. “Me being the Voice of Life is not a thing that has changed; at least to my knowledge.”

“Y-you know what I meant!” Ajax retorted, flapping his wings quickly. “Need I remind you what your visions have ended up foretelling in just the last couple of years.” He muttered, his voice strained with stress.

“No. It’s not what you think.” Hydreigon said quickly, his expression calm. “While it's true that the Bittercold managed to come back as Dark Matter, the cycle has been stopped.” The dragon smiled slightly. “It appears that the Dark Matter entity has finally been appeased. I have reason to believe it finally has claimed the peace it was searching for.”

Ajax gulped down the lump that formed in his throat. “Ah- My mistake. So-” He flicked his tail awkwardly. “Why do we have to find the Prism Globe now?”

“Other than that the Tree of Life said so, I have no clue.” Hydreigon shrugged. “If the Tree of Life was ever straightforward with its warnings, that would’ve saved everybody a lot of troubles over the years.”

Ajax let out a laugh in response to this. “True! I supposed that’s just the nature of life in general!”

Hydreigon responded with a bark of a laugh. “Exactly!”

The two continued to chuckle for a couple of moments as Ajax looked back at the book and rescanned the page.

Ajax frowned as he reached a certain detail in the passage. “This treasure is said to be on the Stone Continent. That’s quite the journey from here.”

“Perhaps we can send some of the acolytes there to search for it?” Hydreigon suggested.

“No.” Ajax shut the book forcefully, his eyes narrowed with certainty. “I can go.”

“You want to go by yourself?” Hydreigon asked, staring back at Ajax with a raised brow. “What about Mimikyu?”

Flygon paused for a moment. “I...suppose I’ll bring Yuna with me? I have no reason to believe the trip will be particularly dangerous. As long as she stays at my side, everything should be fine.”

“Yes, well, about that-” Hydreigon chuckled faintly, as if he was trying to hide being worried about something.

“Yes?” Ajax raised a brow back at him, staring at him patiently.

Hydreigon took in a sharp breath before continuing. “The Tapu Guardians of the Zenith Islands have been acting extra territorial from what I've heard recently.”

“That never bodes well.” The flygon said dryly. When you’ve been in Ajax’s line of work for as long as he has, you learn that angry Legendaries are never a good sign.

“Indeed!” Hydreigon replied. “Unfortunately, getting details from that side of the world to here is a bit difficult. So I’m afraid I can’t tell you much more than that right now.”

“Well, let’s hope this is just your usual territory dispute.” Ajax grumbled, taking the book to his chest. “Regardless, the Prism Globe-”

“It’s appearance sort of reminds you of the Tree of Life, right? With all of the rainbow colors, and what-not.” Hydreigon said. “I want to bring it up to Xerneas next time I see them.”

“Not just that-” Ajax opened the book again and began flipping back to the page. “The book also mentions it with the Space-Time Globe, which is said be held in Destiny Tower - if such a place really exists.”

“The Prism Globe, to my understanding, is tied to the elemental types, while the Space-Time Globe is supposed to be able to warp time and space.”

“Then let’s just be thankful we’re dealing with the less metaphysical of the two.” Ajax replied flatly. “Regardless, just looking at ancient tomes isn’t going to do much in actually obtaining it. I should begin making preparations for my journey.”

Hydreigon smirked. “Starting off with telling Yuna, I presume?”

Flygon gently laughed. “Yes! I’ll have to remember to pack her favorite blanket.”

“You’ve been all around the world before, but this will be Yuna’s first time traveling off of the continent.” Hydreigon remarked. “This trip will likely be very exciting to her.”

“I know it will.” Ajax’s voice began to trail off slightly. “M-my main priority will be finding the Prism Globe first and foremost.”

“We’ll see about that.”

“What was that?” Ajax snapped his head around to Hydreigon who was giving him an innocent smile.

Hydreigon tilted his head. “What?”

Ajax’s jaw clenched and he shook his head slightly. “S-sorry. I thought I heard something.”

“Just...remember to prepare for the unexpected.” Hydreigon whispered. “I know you always like to over prepare, but-” He brushed the back of his neck awkwardly with one of his head-hands. “Life doesn’t always go as planned. You never know what could possibly happen.”

Ajax stared at Hydreigon, his eyes with bewilderment. “Wait- do you think something...bad could happen to me.”

“I’m not sure.” Hydreigon replied. “I don’t think you and Yuna are in mortal danger but...I’m sensing-” Hydreigon shut his eyes and paused for a moment as if in great concentration. “Something will happen to you. Something that will change the course of your life.”

Ajax stepped back, sputtering slightly. “H-how-”

“Again! I don’t know the details! But I know you hate surprises!” Hydreigon scoffed lightly and looked to Ajax wistfully. “So I just want you to be prepared to be unprepared.”

Well that’s helpful. Ajax snarked internally, his wings twitching irritably. “...Is that...all?”

Hydreigon lowered his head and groaned. “I knew I should’ve kept my mouth shut...but yes, that's all.”

Ajax huffed. “Well then-” His eyes darted across the room for a second before he began to turn on his toes. “I should attend to my...preparations. I’ll leave in a couple of days.”

Hydreigon slowly nodded. “And you as well.”
