Horizons is officially CLOSED. The board will remain accessible as an archive, but staff has moved on. If you're looking for a new Pokemon RP, try Lucky Strike or any number of others.
Welcome to Veria!
Pokémon Horizons is an expansive RP driven by member-planned plots and regular site events more than any singular site-wide plot, meaning there is always something to do and always room for new ideas.
From classic Pokémon staples to simple slice-of-life to grandiose encounters with Legendary Pokémon, there's a little something for everyone. We've been open since December 2015 and are always eager to welcome new friends~

Jasmine had been at the festival for a bit, just enjoying herself for the first time in a long time. Well she had enjoyed herself before but this was different as it was just games and whatnot. After so long of just spending time training and working towards being a nurse after all these days.
However she didn't know she would run into someone she knew at the festival, let alone one of the reasons she had moved to this region along with another both of them knew. Part of her wondered just how much they changed, well at least him as Eva seemed to not have changed beyond getting more and more insane. Quickly Jasmine shook her head as she was thinking about it and honestly Eva wasn't that insane just very comfortable for what she is and having fun with it. A little smile spread over her face before the young woman just shook her head, well she was still insane but on her own terms then it seemed.

While Thomas wasn't the most social individual, and someone who avoided events like the Star Festival, the fact that a good chunk of his family was involved in the contest was incentive enough for him to get out and go to the festival. And despite the turnout for the festival, it was something that Thomas was glad he went out to attend. The fact that there were several exhibits on space, an interest he hadn't entertained in years, made the trip worth it.
Of course, what he didn't see coming was a run-in with a dear friend.
Around the Star Formation stall, he would spot a familiar face, someone who had also trained under the same master, but had taken a different path compared to any of his other apprentices. In all honesty, Thomas was surprised to see Jasmine in Veria, especially after all the time that had passed between their last meeting, but nevertheless was happy to see her again.
The trainer, who now had a head of medium length brown hair, approached the nurse, smiling at her as he waved.
"Hey Jasmine, it's been a while.", he said to her.

Jasmine gave a small little shy smile, honestly she hadn't prepared herself for a meeting this soon but... well what could you do when running into each other like this? "Hey Thomas... yeah years... how have you been?" She managed to speak up, but the smile on her face grew a little bit. It wasn't that bad, easier than expected after all this time. At least she didn't feel like a stalker trying to find his address or something.
"Surprise? heh... I wasn't expecting to run into you here...." Inwardly she was about ready to smack Eva when she saw her, but then again this was a grand festival of the region so it wasn't Eva's fault... Ah she'd hit her anyways for something or other. Reaching up to rub the back of her head, it felt like she had a million things to say but at the same time nothing to say. Ah well she looked at Thomas and waiting for him to speak up himself again.

Thomas had to restrain himself to keep himself from just rushing up to the brunette and giving her a big hug. While it pained him to do that, he didn't know if Jasmine would be ready to hug him, or what had changed since then. After all, her expression seemed shy, so Thomas figured it'd be best to play it safe, at least for the time being.
"I've been very busy.", Thomas remarked, essentially glazing over his life after graduation. "How about you? How has the medical field been treating you?", he would ask her.
If anything, he was thankful that Jasmine chose to be a nurse instead of an assassin, and that Andre deliberately kept anything that could identify him out of reach of Thomas.
"Yeah, taking some time off from the job, and I decided to scratch the space itch after a while.", Thomas remarked. "And I'm surprised to see you here in Veria... but I'm glad you're here.", Thomas said with a smile. "So what brings you to Veria?", he inquired.

He seemed a bit hesitant to mention much of what made him busy, but Jasmine didn't pry. After all this was public and it might harm his life here. "Oh I've been doing alright, and pretty well actually for the most part... when I don't have patients that try to flirt with me or tell me how to do my work." Rolling her eyes at the mention but she was still smiling anyways.
"Well um... Eva got ahold of me and informed me that you were also in this region so she was sticking around. So of course I had to stop my wandering and come look after you both because we all know you both need a healer." Jasmine however walked over and gave Thomas a nice tight hug, though not before trying to tousle his hair. "And where is my hug huh? Too grown up now to hug this old aunty?" She couldn't help but tease, she was indeed older than him but not by too much.

The trainer chuckled when she mentioned how patients would either flirt with her, or tell her how to do her job. With the former, he couldn't really blame them. After all, Jasmine was a beautiful woman, if one were to ask Thomas. Though with the latter, Thomas would've straight up told them to stuff it, if he were in her position.
"I see. So how much did Eva have to say about me and my situation?", he would inquire, before being surprised. He would quickly find his doubts unfounded, as Jasmine gave him a nice, tight hug, while tussling his hair. As she asked him where her hug was, Thomas grinned happily, almost playfully. He would hug his fellow apprentice warmly and tightly, but not nearly enough to hurt her.
"Of all the growing up I've done over the years, I would never grow up too much to accept a good hug. I just wondered if you had a problem with it in public.", Thomas would tell her, still smiling. "After all, this is the first time we've met on the outside.", he would tell her.
"So aside from the job, how has life been treating you since we last saw each other? Make any new friends?", he would ask Jasmine.

When Thomas mentioned Eva and about his situation she couldn't help but wrinkle her nose and give a little sigh. "She didn't mention much about specifics, just told me to hear from you personally... Though she did tell me when she dragged you off for fun times and tried to show me diagrams of.... everything..." Her face went a little red but she coughed slightly and turned to look away.
"Good, hugs are always nice... as for public and first meeting, can always say met through a friend and one of us is a hugger or something." It wasn't that great of an excuse but Jasmine wasn't honestly too surprised or anything, or wanting to think on it or figure out such minute details. Giving a little sigh and a wry smile more for the awkwardness of.. well everything. "Well life has been alright, just wandering nurse of sorts.... No real friends though, just some acquaintances and whatnot. I don't exactly go out and make friends remember."

Thomas couldn't help but chuckle when Jasmine told him that Eva tried to show her some diagrams. "That's Eva for ya.", Thomas remarked. It was strange, that before Eva came along, Thomas would've been freaked out about someone showing anyone diagrams of him. Perhaps it was a sign that Eva had corrupted him, or just that his time "learning" from her helped to alleviate his issues with his self-perception somewhat. In any case, Thomas wasn't shocked by this in the slightest.
"As long as you have no problem with it, I've got no issue with it.", Thomas told Jasmine as he smiled, enjoying the hug.
He would listen to Jasmine tell him about her job as a wandering nurse, and how she hasn't really made many friends. "Me neither, but as I've come to find out over the years, friends can come at unexpected times, and from unexpected places. One moment, you're having a conversation with someone, or working through some wilderness with them, and the next, you start to bond over whatever you two are doing.", he would tell her.
