Furret The Pearl Islet: Mint Earhart's Base

The Pearl Islet

Mint Earhart's Secret Base

Far out in the seas of Fizzytopia, a pristine, lush island lies hidden among the waves. It is rather small, with steep, rocky plateaus overrun by grasses, vines, and yet more exotic flora covering a fair amount of the land, and palms shading almost all of the shores. Despite the unlikelihood of anyone ever finding and settling this place, the house that spans the many rocky ledges of the islet serves as a testament to never underestimate a girl who wants a peaceful, quiet place to return to when the day is done. Indeed, wooden stairs lead visitors up to the front porch and door of a beautifully constructed villa, the Secret Base and home of one Mint Earhart.

The Beach:

Pristine, soft, white sand beaches encircle the entirety of the Islet, decorated with varying types of beautiful seashells or the occasional washed up bits of Corsola that are left by the changing tides. One spot on the beach in particular is home to a massive wooden pier, at the end of which is docked a small motorboat, the back of which identifies the craft simply as The Pearl. It's a relatively new watercraft, the painted images of Mantyke and more along its sides still fresh and untarnished, and the vessel Mint uses to travel between her Base and the Fizzytopia mainland on the regular. There are several more spots along the pier, though the side opposite The Pearl's usual post is generally reserved for larger ships. The water, while just as salty as you'd expect, is relatively calm and crystal clear this close to shore. So long as one does not venture too far, it's generally safe for people or any manner of aquatic Pokemon to swim here, though Trainer supervision is recommended, just in case. Further inland from the pier, one will find the base of a large set of wooden stairs, with a shower of sorts to wash the sand out of one's hair and toes at the first landing. Mint would greatly appreciate it if you used these before coming back inside from laying on the beach.

The Villa-Exterior:

Once one has climbed the many stairs from the islet's shore, they will find themselves at the front deck of Mint's villa. The deck goes around the entirety of the house, able to offer a spectacular view from any side of the house, as well as a place to sit and enjoy the sea breeze, weather permitting, but it is still most spacious out front. Wooden swing chairs, patio chairs, and recliners alike all surround several small wooden tables on which to place snacks or drinks. All sides of the patio sit under an overhang such that at least one area is shaded from the sun at all times, as well as to offer some shelter from the rain before coming inside. Sliding glass doors exist on both sides as well as around back, but the front doors remain wooden, with ornate stained-glass windows inset in them depicting two Luvdisc facing one another. A doorbell in the shape of a Chimecho's head is at the right side of the doorframe, and will bring Mint quickly to the door when rung, provided she's home. For the sake of any potentially sleeping Pokemon inside: one press of the button is plenty.

Entryway/Lounge Area:

Once one enters the Villa, a wide open space greets them. Take your shoes off at the door, instructs a sign on the nearby wall, in hopes of keeping the polished hardwood flooring spotless. The lounge area is an open concept space directly underneath a large skylight. Cabana-style sofas with plush white cushions and throw pillows, three in all, surround a large table whose center is clear glass. Coasters lay scattered about the surface, and dishes are laid out, usually filled with snacks for (expected) company. The one side not home to a couch sees a large television mounted on the wall above a large fireplace, with a Nintendo Switch hooked into it with a small library of games. Other tables and chairs dot the area as overflow seating for large gatherings (and to hold the extra hors d'oeuvres required of such functions). Around the center of the room, a spiral staircase leads to the second floor.

The Kitchen:

The kitchen makes up the west "wing" of the house, and has a sliding glass door leading to the deck at its far end. A fridge/freezer, oven, stove, dishwasher and all are scattered about, with a large counter along two sides of the room, with an island in the middle, all furnished with a pristine granite countertop. The pantry is off to the right, stocked with ingredients and whatever kitchenware wont fit in the many cabinets or the lazy Susan in the corner of the countertop. A small table with four chairs sits beyond the equipment and close to the sliding door-meals are usually ad here when Mint is alone or with just a few guests.

The Battle Room:

Making up the east wing of the house, the Battle Room is home to a high ceiling, but little else. Instead, a wide open space is home to a simple clay battle arena. However, to keep the house intact, especially the sliding glass door, battles should stay low-intensity. Pastinha can often be found training here.

The Pool Room:

The north wing of the villa is home to a large indoor pool, in which Mint's aquatic Pokemon can be found playing more often than not. A black, full-body wetsuit hangs on the wall, which Mint greatly prefers to more ordinary swimwear, just next to the expected sliding glass door. The pool itself can comfortably hold aquatic Pokemon up to about the size of a Milotic, larger Pokemon should consider swimming in the ocean instead. Unlike the lounge area, the pool deck is concrete. Changing rooms for guys and gals are off to the left of the room.

Second Floor-Bedroom/Crow's Nest:

The top of the spiral staircase in the lounge brings one to a small landing, and an arched wooden door. Through it lies Mint's bedroom, which doubles as a crow's nest of sorts for the Villa. Except for where the door is, large windows encompass the entire room, beneath which are short bookcases loaded with plenty of books for both informational and light pleasure reading. A large four-poster bed with turquoise fittings and pillows stands at the center, with a nightstand beside it that is home to a single lamp, whose top also doubles as a perch for Celeste. The floor here is a pleasantly soft turquoise carpet, and a few beanbags lay about the room, amidst a gigantic collection of plushies.

Rules:

-When coming in after others, specify whether you wish to join the others or start your own storyline. For convenience, make sure other people are chill with you joining in, though this doesn't apply for large events open to the general public.

-Be reasonable about what Pokemon you have out while inside. A Steelix is probably not going to fit, not even in the Battle Room. Also, it may be a good idea to keep heavier Pokemon off the deck.

-If you're going to come over, you should have a means of coming over figured out. If you don't have a Pokemon or a boat to come over on, be creative! See if you can write up having temporary access to one-maybe you've borrowed a Ride Pager?

-Please don't break anything! Keep battles to the Battle Room.

-Enjoy yourself!

The deck is just fine at present! Come on in!
