Commission from ebonyplume once more with Thadius and Perceus! I love how ebonyplume draws Thadius and Perceus so much, haha!
With help from Sir Perceus, the two managed to find a rather interesting item from an expedition. A puzzle of sorts, with cryptic writing along the walls on what it might do. After making a copy of the text and finding what Thadius claimed were all the pieces to it, the two returned home and Thadius promptly got to work cleaning it up and trying to figure it out.
It would seem however, that it's proving to be quite difficult, even for a slowking like himself. Even after the aggron's suggestion that it might still have a few more parts to it, Thadius still continued to try and solve what he could, eventually causing is partner to fall asleep as he worked. Seems Thadius is determined, but quite effectively stumped.
After hours upon hours of messing with the puzzle and making little headway, Thadius eventually found himself too tired to continue working on it. Perceus however, having already slept during it, awoke to find the slowking asleep on the table. With a sigh mixing both exasperation and affection, he quickly took off his cape and covered his partner in it, letting him sleep peacefully (and likely not wishing to carry him away from the table he pushed himself up against.).
Perhaps they'll look for more pieces to the puzzle tomorrow, or continue to work on the ones they have. Regardless of what they choose to do, one thing won't change. They'll do it together, alongside one another.
