A Facadeverse fic

I had the urge to write about Wallace and Winona's kid in a fluffy, non angsty sort of way

They went out on a walk through Jubilife City the day before the Wallace Cup began. It had been a hectic week, and it would only become more so. They wanted a day of just the three of them: Wallace, Winona, and Robin. They went out in the morning: Winona got to see flying Starly, and she got to share that joy with Robin for the first time. Their joy made Wallace happy.

As they came back to the hotel in the evening, they were running through a storm.

It was a downpour of wind and rain. It crashed down onto the streets and buildings. Some people were lucky enough to have umbrellas. Others, like Wallace and Winona, had to face the cold and wetness without such a luxury.

Wallace held his cape over Winona, trying to keep her and Robin dry. He knew he was getting soaked. He knew that Winona was getting soaked, as much as he tried to keep her dry. But as long as Robin was dry, as long as she was safe, it would all be okay. She was just a baby. She needed protection from the terrifying storm.

Could she even see the rain? She was barely six months old, but there was wonder in her turquoise eyes. A clap of thunder roared through the city, scaring the wonder away and startling her into tears. Wallace himself flinched and stopped against a building, his heart racing. As more thunder roared, Winona stood in front of him. Her smile managed to calm him down just a bit, enough to cover Winona and Robin again, enough to look down at Robin.

They were both scared of storms, it seemed. They both needed safety and comfort, it seemed.

"Shhh, it's okay," Wallace whispered. "It's okay. It's okay."

Wallace put his free hand on Robin, who was spared from the soaked fate her parents had suffered. She took his cold finger in her tiny, warm hands. She looked up at her parents, her cries growing quieter as she realized she was safe from the thunder, safe with her parents. Winona wrapped an arm around Wallace. He was safe from the thunder, safe with his wife and daughter. They were all safe, he reassured himself. It was going to be okay.

Wallace leaned over Robin, and his forehead pressed against Winona's. Smiling, he kissed her lips. She was smiling as well, but she was also shivering. Or was it him who was shivering? Either way, they had to get back to the hotel.

The warmth of the hotel lobby welcomed the three. The floors were wet, and countless people who had also been caught in the rain were standing or walking around. Some of them squealed when they saw Wallace. He gave them a smile and a wave as he walked into the elevator with his wife, who leaned against him to further hide herself under his cape. She had never liked the spotlight, and she became even more protective against the public and media after Robin was born.

"I'll take care of Robin," Wallace said to Winona. "You should get changed first."

He smiled, thinking about going back to the hotel room, thinking about warm blankets and warm tea and warm cuddles.

And when the doors to the elevator closed, it was once again just the three of them: Wallace, Winona, and Robin.

Hi Torchic! Here for Review Blitz and to spread a little love since no one's reviewed this yet. Hope you're having a splendid day!

Starting off with; admittedly I'm not quite familiar with your universe so I'm probably gonna get some spoilers by reading this first but eh. Also I'm probably gonna check out IAM sometime this week or the next so...

This was a cute little fic. Short, simple and cute. Robin was an adorable little pumpkin and I love her. Wallace makes for such a good dad and it was quite lovely to read his thoughts and how protective he was of both Winona and Robin. Didn't really get much of Winona but that's fine since the story wasn't really focusing much on her but rather the dynamic being Dad Wallace and baby Robin.

Here's some line-by-line thoughts.

They went out on a walk through Jubilife City the day before the Wallace Cup began.
This made me look up Wallace Cup... and I can't believe it's an actual thing. (Also this just gave me an idea for a potential plot point in the future lol)

They wanted a day of just the three of them: Wallace, Winona, and Robin.
Robin's an interesting name for a girl, seeing as that's usually a boy's name I believe? I could be wrong though since my experience with Robin comes mostly from Batman.
He knew he was getting soaked. He knew that Winona was getting soaked, as much as he tried to keep her dry.
Oh no, hope Wallace doesn't get sick from this.
A clap of thunder roared through the city, scaring the wonder away and startling her into tears.
No! Bad thunder! You made baby cry!
She took his cold finger in her tiny, warm hands. She looked up at her parents, her cries growing quieter as she realized she was safe from the thunder, safe with her parents. Winona wrapped an arm around Wallace. They were all safe, he reassured himself. It was going to be okay.
This was a cute and wonderful image.

So overall, a cute little story. You're pretty good at doing these Wallace fics I've heard so keep it up!

As always, take care of yourself! And keep doing what you enjoy!

As a diminutive of Robert, yeah, it's a boy's name, though it has gained popularity as a girl's name. (tbh I didn't know it was a diminutive name until now...
Oh no, hope Wallace doesn't get sick from this.
:devilish:
No! Bad thunder! You made baby cry!
Hit the thunder with a broom! Bad thunder!
This was a cute and wonderful image.
(:
So overall, a cute little story. You're pretty good at doing these Wallace fics I've heard so keep it up!
Woah I am? Who's been saying that? (genuinely curious)
As always, take care of yourself! And keep doing what you enjoy!
Thank you!!! Have a wonderful day!

Here for Review Blitz! I've enjoyed coming to your fics multiple times in this Blitz, and here I wanted to do somethimg extra short and sweet, and extra short and extra sweet this is!

You start with a cute day on the town with Wallace and Wiona and their beautiful baby dauighter, in Jublife (heh, I was just there in Shining Pearl. I should go back and actually try the fucking Contests). Everything is hunky dory and chill and good until THE WRATH OF KYOGRE AND ZAPDOS HITS AND THERE'S A STORM. So Wallace has to be a Good Dad and help keep his family dry - him using his cape was a highlight. Though, I can't tell if the baby is supposed to be fascinated by or scarted of the storm? Probably scared. I'm better with babies than most people but let me telll you they compete with horses for "most easily Peturbed" animal on earth. Though you never mention her crying as far as I read so I don't know.

But in the end they get inside a fucking elevator in a fucking building where it's just the three of them safe from the rain and they're Togeher and this causes the Umbra to let out a very loud mental awww.

See, I'm a hypocrite. Short chapters and onesghots are easy for my Burnt Out Gifted Kid brain to process, but when actually giving honest to fucking god critique I'm often like "expand this, I'd like to see more of that". But this? Thios is just the right size. Sure it's a teeny little drabble but it terms of plot structure and events it accomplishes everything it needs to in a tiny space. Nice job.

But super cute, I lov, such a good family. Thanks for the read.

Aww thanks friend!

Yeeeee
(heh, I was just there in Shining Pearl. I should go back and actually try the fucking Contests).
I think Contests might be in Hearthome City.
Everything is hunky dory and chill and good until THE WRATH OF KYOGRE AND ZAPDOS HITS AND THERE'S A STORM.
Kyogre and Zapdos: Oh you're trying to have a non-angsty fic? NOT ON MY WATCH!
So Wallace has to be a Good Dad and help keep his family dry - him using his cape was a highlight.
Yes!! That cape is so versatile.
Though, I can't tell if the baby is supposed to be fascinated by or scarted of the storm? Probably scared.

Okay, so here I am, leaving my review for this majestic oneshot fic titled "Wind and Rain." Judging from the link text in the beginning, I assume that this is part of a much longer story that is composed of other oneshots. Regardless, without further ado!

From what I can tell, this story is about Wallace and Winona trying to enjoy their time when suddenly, rain has befallen upon them, drenching the trio with its cold, stingy drops of water, with Wallace shielding her and Robin against the cold, harsh and thunderous weather. Now, that's just adorable and it shows his commitment in keeping Winon and Robin safe from the rain, and they both look adorable when they were able to hide from the rain and with Wallace comforting Robin, and giving Winona a warm and tender kiss. AAAAAA SO ADORABLE, ARE YOU TRYING TO KILL ME WITH ADORABLENESS OR WHAT!? WHO HIRED YOU TO TRY AND KILL ME WITH SUCH THINGS AAAAA

With that said, even though this is a short onefic, the levels of cute, adorable and all around just bubbly stuff is now off the charts that I think at this point I need to start checking my blood pressure levels to see if I need to calm down or not because I am suspicious that this is your way of trying to kill me, but with cute, bubbly and adorable stuff LMAO

With that said, I am looking forward in reading your other oneshots and stories, expecting more Wallace and Winona fluff from them - and angst of course! You can't write a story without angst, the main ingredient in every story!

Another review for our exchange! Short, but very sweet!

Wonder why they're in Jubilife, but that doesn't matter. Loved little Robin's wonder at the wind and rain, probably her first time hearing it it seems. Also really liked the detail at the end of just the three of them being together, Wallace, Winona, and Robin. Nice conclusion after the third to last paragraph.

Heya, I’d been meaning to check out this piece, and you happened to drop in a well-timed shill on a more crowded night where it’ll be a bit hard to get in things that aren’t bite-sized, so that sounds like as good of a reason to just go ahead and read, huh?

Though a title that’s partly in Chinese characters / Kanji? That’s a bit different, let’s see what that’s all about:

They went out on a walk through Jubilife City the day before the Wallace Cup began. It had been a hectic week, and it would only become more so. They wanted a day of just the three of them: Wallace, Winona, and Robin. They went out in the morning: Winona got to see flying Starly, and she got to share that joy with Robin for the first time. Their joy made Wallace happy.

The ‘Wallace Cup’, huh? So Wallace eventually becomes a big enough deal in Facadeverse to get sporting events named after him, huh? I feel as if I should be less surprised by this, but it still made me blink a bit. ^^;

As they came back to the hotel in the evening, they were running through a storm.

Oh, so Winona looks like this with her birds right now, huh? :V :

Shutterstock_1206780a.jpg


It was a downpour of wind and rain. It crashed down onto the streets and buildings. Some people were lucky enough to have umbrellas. Others, like Wallace and Winona, had to face the cold and wetness without such a luxury.

Winona: “Wallace, we need to have a word together once we’re out of this weather.” >_>;

Wallace held his cape over Winona, trying to keep her and Robin dry. He knew he was getting soaked. He knew that Winona was getting soaked, as much as he tried to keep her dry. But as long as Robin was dry, as long as she was safe, it would all be okay. She was just a baby. She needed protection from the terrifying storm.

… How is Robin not bawling her lungs out right now considering that this storm is in all likelihood making an unholy racket right now? Especially if she can feel any of it?

Could she even see the rain? She was barely six months old, but there was wonder in her turquoise eyes. A clap of thunder roared through the city, scaring the wonder away and startling her into tears. Wallace himself flinched and stopped against a building, his heart racing. As more thunder roared, Winona stood in front of him. Her smile managed to calm him down just a bit, enough to cover Winona and Robin again, enough to look down at Robin.

Ah yes, there’s the moment getting scared of the storm that I was expecting there.

They were both scared of storms, it seemed. They both needed safety and comfort, it seemed.

Winona: “Wallace, how is that not only obvious when thunder and lightning aren’t good for birds?” >_>;
Wallace: “I was assuming you’d have someone on your team with Lightningrod?” ^^;

"Shhh, it's okay," Wallace whispered. "It's okay. It's okay."

Now, is he saying that to Robin, to Winona, or both? :V

Wallace put his free hand on Robin, who was spared from the soaked fate her parents had suffered. She took his cold finger in her tiny, warm hands. She looked up at her parents, her cries growing quieter as she realized she was safe from the thunder, safe with her parents. Winona wrapped an arm around Wallace. He was safe from the thunder, safe with his wife and daughter. They were all safe, he reassured himself. It was going to be okay.

… Wait, is he doing this on the street while it’s still storming out, or was the intention that they made it indoors and that he did this there?

Wallace leaned over Robin, and his forehead pressed against Winona's. Smiling, he kissed her lips. She was smiling as well, but she was also shivering. Or was it him who was shivering? Either way, they had to get back to the hotel.

Oh, so he did do that on the street. I kinda wonder if it’d have at least made sense to mention that he ducked under an awning or something, since one would think that it wouldn’t be particularly comfortable to stop in a storm to give reassurance without some form of shelter. To say nothing about stuff potentially flying around if the winds are strong enough at the moment.

The warmth of the hotel lobby welcomed the three. The floors were wet, and countless people who had also been caught in the rain were standing or walking around. Some of them squealed when they saw Wallace. He gave them a smile and a wave as he walked into the elevator with his wife, who leaned against him to further hide herself under his cape. She had never liked the spotlight, and she became even more protective against the public and media after Robin was born.

Ah yes, the fangirls / paparazzi. One of the downsides of being a public figure, let along one who’s physically attractive. Though that makes me wonder how common an issue this is among various Gym Leaders / E4 / Champions in Facadeverse.

"I'll take care of Robin," Wallace said to Winona. "You should get changed first."

He smiled, thinking about going back to the hotel room, thinking about warm blankets and warm tea and warm cuddles.

And when the doors to the elevator closed, it was once again just the three of them: Wallace, Winona, and Robin.

:seviuwu:


Even if it’s a bit weird in retrospect to read this without Ferdinand, though you’ve explained what the story behind that is. I guess we can just assume he’s in his Pokéball or something right now.

I thought that was a cute little ficlet starring your incarnations of Wallace and Winona and their family, even if I do wonder if one-day it might be worth touching things up to acknowledge Ferdinand in some capacity. The only real complaint that I have is that I’m not fully sure if Wallace’s actions to stop and comfort Winona and Robin outside of cover from the storm makes sense, but eh. It’s cute enough for me to let slide.

Thanks for the recommendation @Torchic W. Pip , it was a fun little cute piece to dive into. ^^

It’s an anime Contest thing, and somehow Wallace did manage to become a proficient enough Coordinator to be this special and cool.

Oh, so Winona looks like this with her birds right now, huh? :V :

Winona: “Wallace, we need to have a word together once we’re out of this weather.” >_>;
Lmao this made me laugh

… How is Robin not bawling her lungs out right now considering that this storm is in all likelihood making an unholy racket right now? Especially if she can feel any of it?
I would say “something something health issues something something affects her crying”, but logically yeah, she probably would be crying

Winona: “Wallace, how is that not only obvious when thunder and lightning aren’t good for birds?” >_>;
Wallace: “I was assuming you’d have someone on your team with Lightningrod?” ^^;
You know, this makes me realize that Wallace and Winona need more fun banter and bickering like an old married couple. Maybe.

Now, is he saying that to Robin, to Winona, or both? :V
Yes

… Wait, is he doing this on the street while it’s still storming out, or was the intention that they made it indoors and that he did this there?
Wallace, genius he is, is meant to be doing it in the street

Ah yes, the fangirls / paparazzi. One of the downsides of being a public figure, let along one who’s physically attractive. Though that makes me wonder how common an issue this is among various Gym Leaders / E4 / Champions in Facadeverse.
He is attractive

Well, it depends on the League member and their public presence

:seviuwu:


Even if it’s a bit weird in retrospect to read this without Ferdinand, though you’ve explained what the story behind that is. I guess we can just assume he’s in his Pokéball or something right now.
I had ideas of writing Ferdinand being in the hotel room, watching the performance with his Pokémon, waiting for the three to come back so he can give them warm cuddles.

I thought that was a cute little ficlet starring your incarnations of Wallace and Winona and their family, even if I do wonder if one-day it might be worth touching things up to acknowledge Ferdinand in some capacity. The only real complaint that I have is that I’m not fully sure if Wallace’s actions to stop and comfort Winona and Robin outside of cover from the storm makes sense, but eh.
