At this point I'm probably just going to slap something together since I've kept you long enough, muse or no. I hope to have something up by the day's end. Sorry just doesn't cut it now, but sorry anyway.
I think the best way to handle hte situation is just to have the scenario go as follow
Anselme puts in stone making the total 4, but still with the indent in the center ->
He leaves to find last stone ->
Anise & co arrive ->
Anselme returns to see them just arriving/messing with the wall, does his thing and steps off to the side to watch the event start/Alternatively he could just walk off and return when it's all over/or just return when it's all over, whatever you prefer, we could make edits based off the most reasonable scenario ->
Anise dips, Anselme is left to talk to Ben/Yukari/Figure out Anise took his stone from the wall
Well, since there are six stones and Anselme only held the 5th, you probably wouldn't need to cut out the bit about Barry. You do have a point about the other part, though. In that case, should I edit it so that Anselme never puts his stone in? I could also edit it so that he trips or something before reaching the group so that you don't have to worry about editing in a reaction to him.
Yeah I was playing Skyrim for a little bit before making the post. I noticed it but I guess I missed the r. I'll get to fixing that.
I kind of avoided mentioning Anselme because he kinda stepped off to the side. I could edit the post a little to mention Anise's reaction given that I meant to note that she was keeping her eye on him. I figured he could interact with Ben/Yukari after the end of the post, since there was a lot of room for things to happen he could learn that Anise took his stone and meet up with everyone at the pokemon center.
I also didn't mention the 5 stones just because I didn't see the edit for it when I posted, so I didn't want to get continuity all confused and have to rewrite the means of Anise figuring that the stones needed to be removed rather than placed (and I would have to cut out the bit about Anise ranting about Barry since there wouldn't be anything prompting it without the stone missing).
I like the post you guys made. However, it has no mention of what Anselme did so I'm wondering if it would be better for me to edit around that or for you to edit that into you guys' post. There could be some interaction if Anise takes all the inserted stones (Anselme's initial one included) and he comes after her wanting it back, or something. Either way, it's your call.
Also, you listed Skymin as Skyrmin. Although I have misread that name as Skyrim before.
