Pokeuman PULSE Chapter 3: Urban BeatdownLet me briefly paint the scene for you all. Day one: Green hair. Day two: Pale skin and vomiting. Day three: Jaw pains and loss of all body hair. Day four...Pokeuman PULSE Chapter 3: Urban Beatdown by Masterweaver
Day four was the day the rabbit got fet up, strangled me with its waistwatch chain, and dragged me down the hole.
Actually, in retrospect, maybe Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland was inspired by... no, wikipedia says it was written fifty odd years before this whole thing began, so Lewis Carroll was just weird. Or possibly one of Satoshi Tajiri’s previous identities. The guy’s pretty slippery with those sorts of things.
I’m getting ahead of myself. Why don’t we just when I woke up to find a red shard jutting out of my chest?
I woke up to discover a red shard jutting out of my chest.

On the other... well, you’re kidnapping various random critters and brainwashing them to be your loyal gladiators. Not the best impression, savvy?
So when I woke up that morning, staring out my window at the streetlight of pre-down Texas, I did not immediately think how strange it was my dream involved alien gladiators. Because, all in all, my dreams are incredibly freaky. And mildly lucid. Kinda.
No, what I was thinking was something more along the lines of “What time is it...? Oh, no, I woke up before the alarm again... Ugh, I’m not going to get back to sleep am I?”
