I figured it’s time to actually talk about these in depth and since he is her latest one, I should start with him. It all started after her relationship with Proton fell apart. It wasn’t that they were having problems in their relationship; in fact, they were really truly in love. It was just external factors that had them break up and leaving her with no place to go. Her elites , by that time, have all moved out of the route 224 villa which made her feel so closed in that she rarely went there unless it was league season and such.
Cynthia ended up looking for an apartment in the town and there she found this amazing looking penthouse. Only problem was that Arthur had already taken it so there was an argument. Ultimately the land lady thought they would equally benefit from just sharing the place and eventually the two agreed. I mean let’s face it, it would take less than a few minutes for Arthur to conduct a decent enough background check on her and I’m sure he wouldn’t find anything bad other than her little shopping problem.
They would have been living together for a good six months by the time Eames comes in. What happens there was that Arthur was out (Budapest me thinks) and Eames was on the run from a job in Kuala Lumpur. He thought it would have been a good idea to just head to Arthur’s flat to rest up for a bit while Arthur was gone but he didn’t know he had a roommate. So while he was attempting to pick the lock to the front door, Cynthia notices the knob giggling and decides to check what was going on.
It ended with him aiming a gun at her and her going all “You must be a friend of Arthur’s, come in.”
He talks to her a little, then offers to take her out for coffee as an apology for aiming a gun at her and she says “I’m sorry, I don’t drink coffee.” And he goes all “Well it’s alright dear, I’m British.”
There’s a gap there, but after that he does grow fond of her and continues to ask her out on dates. By the second one, he already suggests sex but she isn’t all that up for it and by the third, I’m going to assume he finds out she’s a virgin. Though I’m not quite sure where their first kiss fits into place here, I think he’d just create a moment for her on the first date and kiss her there. He honestly looks like the time anyway.
As for when they actually put a title to their relationship, well, need to go clarify that one since I’m not quit e sure how Eames would go about it, because what usually happens to Cynthia is either the title is implied with the first kiss, or after a confession. So yeah, needs clarification.
Though I’m pretty sure he would tell her he’s fond of her and she’d tell him she likes him as well. I don’t know. I was told the man has no shame so why not?
So moving on
Yes they get together. Probably a shaky start because Eames would make it absolutely clear that they wouldn’t have a future together and she would understand that because it’s just starting out. But Eames is a PDA enthusiast and Cynthia has no complaints about it. Though Arthur is forever questioning why she would even date the man.
Cue the raw hotdog eating.
And yes that one time when Eames bought her clothes…hahahaha
They do end up in a happy and stable relationship, she takes care of him and he respects her space. Not her job, just her space. He thinks her job is weird and doesn’t understand the point of being a champion.
But probably a few months in, she does start really falling for him and does question him again if they had a future. Which of course he still said no, and in some way it crushed her a little. I mean it’s not that they’d be braking up soon but the thought that she’s starting to really love him and it’s like he doesn’t plan on returning the feelings. Everything kinda evens itself out though. Then comes epic plot.
So here’s the thing. Cynthia doesn’t know that Eames and Arthur are both criminals.
Cynthia, Eames and Arthur were out, probably having dinner, and they come home to the apartment completely trashed. Now the first assumption was that they were there looking for Eames and Arthur. So for her own safety, Eames would ask Cynthia to stand behind him as he and Arthur would enter the apartment and check if it was safe. Of course as soon and they call it clear, she runs to her room and there’s a scream heard when she notices her opened and emptied out safe.
After all, anything inside a safe is important. So might as well take it right?
So while she was in her room freaking out about her notes that were stolen. Eames and Arthur are outside arguing about their escape plan and so they end with Eames drugging Cynthia and taking her away. As they flee the area, Cynthia wakes up in a car, Eames and Arthur arguing about the dangers of dream sharing and Eames’ gun on the resting in the car’s dashboard. Soon they arrive at some hotel in another city and as the boys notice Cynthia was awake, Eames gets out of the car to open the door for her. But she told them that she overhead them talking and she refused to get out of the car until someone told her what was really going on.
Eames sighs and explains everything while Arthur just leaves in frustration to go and get them checked in. He tells her about how he and Arthur both served in the army and that it was there they got into the job of dream sharing. He tells her about his real name and what is it he actually does. Of course Cynthia suddenly felt scared. He had lied to her all this time and, since she was in a rather high position, she was scared that she maybe a target or something.
Obvious she was over thinking things but come on. If you were living with someone for nearly two years, date someone for about a year and a half then finding out they were actually both wanted criminals well…who wouldn’t be scared right?
Eventually she gets out of the car but she’s a little iffy about being near the boys. So lucky for her, she was given her own room (even if it’s had a door connecting the two room which Eames tends to lock pick because he knows Cynthia would probably lock it.) She made it a point to completely lock them out, even hiding in the bathroom whenever Eames would check up on her.
Cynthia was just that scared.
Eventually Cobb, Ariadne and the rest of the group come in to do damage control and Eames pulls out Ariadne to try and talk to Cynthia because he’s honestly getting worried. She does, and in a way she gets Cynthia out. But what makes it more interesting was that the moment she comes out, Eames and Cobb were having an argument about the situations and as soon as he sees Cynthia, he calls her a liability and questions why they even brought her with them. To which Eames responds “She may be a liability but she’s my liability and so she’s my responsibility” or something like that. She smiles and they’re okay again.
So things are okay? Okay.
As they stay in hiding for a while, the league starts to worry because they found out Cynthia’s apartment was ransacked and that the champion was missing. So they send looker to investigate and there they see pictures of the boys and immediately consider them suspects. Which of course led to a background check that ultimately exposes the boys and so a wanted poster is circulated and yeah…
WHICH IS SEEN BY THE BOYS AND WELL
Now Cobb is going ballistic and Arthur’s just as mad. But to save Cynthia the emotional pain, they go under and scold Eames there. Then of course an ultimatum, if he wanted to take her with them, she needed to cut her hair. Which he thought was a simple task till he actually asked her. After all, Cynthia was known for her hair. Cutting it off would mean she would be giving up her identity. But she didn’t want to give up Eames either.
“I’ll cut my hair if you tell me you love me.”
This catches him off guard, irritates him, and because of that he walks away.
“With everything that he did for you now, do you really need him to CONFIRM how he feels about you? Honestly Cynthia, I didn’t want to take you with us. I wanted to leave without you because you ARE a liability I don’t want to have to deal with you. It was Eames who demanded to take you with us. Listen you need to stop thinking of me as some kind of saint. I’m not a saint at all.”
That was probably the longest thing he’s ever said to her. So with the kinky still being fixed here, she gives him a hug and takes his swiss army knife (because we all know he has one) and goes over to Eames who is cooling off at the terrace. She apologizes, asks him to look at her and in front of him, cut off her hair.
Yes. She cuts off her fucking hair.
Let’s say it again.
A few days later, while in the hotel, someone mentions that with the short hair, she looks like Money Penny and of course she is beyond offended by that. Cynthia walks out for as bit and comes back with black hair and new clothes.
Lol he takes her virginity that same night.
And then they run away.
Dunno where yet.
Of course once they were at a more safe area, she calls up the league (specifically Lucian) to tell them to drop the charges and that she’s safe.
Then I honestly don’t know how but their names do get cleared and eventually they’re able to go home.
But Eames feels he’s been in a place for far too long and tells Cynthia he has to leave for a while (to Mombasa, where else?) but he does give her his address there. Few weeks pass and she actually follow him to Mombasa because she missed him but she only stays a week to give him his space,.
Because she knows he’ll come back
(urgh my heart)
So when he does come home, he tells her that she found someone who was selling her missing notes and that galactic was interested in buying it.
But that’s leave that for another time.
MASSIVE TIME SKIP BECAUSE I HONESTLY DON’T KNOW WHAT THE HELL HAPPENS AFTER THAT.
Honestly there is a time where they fuck over with the arcadists and end up with them dragging Cynthia into a dream and then comes the part where she falls into limbo with Eames. They were there for a wile but once they get out, Arthur and Eames made a deal that she was NEVER to enter dreams EVER again EVER.
But from what I recall, this is about the time where she meets Neal and THAT is something dandy. This is also the time when they start hosting poker night at the apartment and she slowly befriends the order.
WOW THIS IS LONG
BUT THIS IS BASICALLY THE GIST OF IT
AND AFTER 3-5 YEARS,EAMES DOES ADMIT THAT THEY HAVE A FUTURE TOGETHER.
WHICH IS SO UGUUU

Character Name: Cynthia
Canon Point; post-BW2
One, because she is so damn pretty, two, because she loves her pokemon to death and three, because she’d put her friends and family above everything else since they were the ones who inspired her to go out and fight for her dream, which she did, and now that she’s champion, she is very grateful for the support they gave and would do anything to return the favor. Even die for them but hopefully it’d never come to that.
Cynthia is first and foremost, a lady. She is poised, she is well mannered, she is polite, and she makes sure to keep herself clean and all costs. She is a pacifist, refusing to get into fights and doesn’t really enjoy battling unless it involved teaching other trainers or saving someone from danger. She takes pride in the fact that she’s the first female champion since she proved to others that girls are just as strong as boys and because of this, no one should even dare to call her out on her gender.
She takes her job very seriously and makes it a point to keep track and take care of anything and everything going on in her region. Everything from curing that group of psyducks so that they’d stop blocking the path to route 210 to entering another dimension to make sure Giratina would end up destroying Sinnoh and probably the world. Sadly the only downside to her job, as amazing as it was, was all the paperwork she had to deal with. Of course as the champion, everything had to go through her before it gets approved, and to her, it was just a big pain.
She loves the beach. Everything about it, from playing in the water, to not doing paperwork, to building sandcastles, to not doing paperwork, and of course, the undeniable fact that she finally found a reason to eat ice cream every day for a month or more and not have to do paperwork at all. Cynthia has a massive sweet tooth and really one would just have to see her with sweets to understand why one shouldn’t underestimate it. She doesn’t drink coffee because it was a danger to her health at some point and instead switched to tea, and she always goes to this little café near the league because they always know how to make tea the way she likes it.
Moving on to a more detailed look at her likes and dislikes. She loves her friends and family, they are very dear to her and would do anything to keep them happy and safe. She loves her elites because she’s been in the league for so long that they become her second family. So if the day came when she’d have to leave them, she’d surely be heart broken. She loves her pokemon, and by this I mean if anyone even dares mess with them, they’d experience her wrath and no one she even see that side of her ever. She loves sweets, she loves the beach, she loves shopping and fashion, she loves her job/title and really to put it all in a nutshell, Cynthia loves being her. She’s quite happy with her life now and it’d take a lot to push her off the little pedestal of bliss that she was currently sitting on.
Thought she does hate a few things, which included people who threatened her region, her paper work, people who talked about her parents (because that’s just one thing she doesn’t like people bringing up), people who hurt pokemon, people who would bash her elites, healthy foods and of course, dieting. It’s not really much of a list, but then, it would take a lot to make her hate something.
She’s not really picky when it comes to talking to people. Honestly, Cynthia would talk to anyone given that they weren’t trying to harm her in any way, shape or form. She’d just prefer people with good manners, good grooming and sometimes, she’d rather just be surrounded by people her age. After all, her job involves inspiring children and of course it’d mean having to deal with them on a daily basis. So it’s not really weird that given a choice, she’d rather stay with people her age rather than little kids (no offense to anyone reading this).
She has been exposed to more legendaries than a normal person and has this tendency to talk on and on about her different experiences while travelling. But other than that, she’s just a regular pokemon league champion.
[She stares at her laptop. Clearly the red blinking dot meant that she was recording but she wasn’t quite sure since she never bothered with the record option for her webcam and whenever she was being interviewed for tv, she never saw it. Well that or she just doesn’t care much for those kinds of things.]
Uhm…alright so I’m not really sure who’s gonna watch this so let’s pretend I see you guys through the webcam and we’ll work our way from there yeah? Yeah. So anyway, I lost a bet with Flint who thinks that I could easy straighten his hair and make it stay straight for twenty four hours. Guys let me tell you now, this man…wait hold on.
[She looks down for a bit and one could clearly see her pull her wallet out of her pocket and pull out a picture. She then returns her attention to the computer screen and shows off a group picture of her and her elites.]
See that guy with the red afro? Yeah that’s Flint. He dared me to straighten his hair and make it stay straight for a day. Let me tell you this now, anyone out there watching this and personally know Flint? Do not, I repeat, DO NOT TAKE THE CHALLENGE. His hair is the definition of impossible and I have proof…hold.
[She reaches forward and now we see the camera being aimed at her trash can filled with hair care products.]
Please tell me that’s proof enough.
[And she returns the camera back to her]
Anyway, for losing the bet, I have to live stream for a full day. So I guess you guys have full access to my “crazy antics” for today, and by that I mean you guys are going to watch me do my paperwork and junk. I mean I don’t really live a really glamorous life, next to the fact that the league gave me a villa to live in with my elites and a very fat credit card, if you know what I mean.
[She takes a pen from the cup next to her and pulls a stack of papers next to her then notices something on her screen and squints her eyes for a few seconds]
Wow okay so I do have people watching, hello person watching, welcome to my live stream of me doing paperwork and oh look a comme—
Oh wow uhm no I’m not going to do tha—arceus man keep that info to yourself, yuck…wait another viewer? Let me guess, you brought a friend?
Hold on a sec…
[She pauses for a bit then glares at the screen as she takes a pokeball from her pocket and tosses it to some random corner. After a flash of light and a loud, angry roar, she focuses her attention to the direction of the sound]
Chompy sweety, could you got check if Uncle Flint’s making fun of mommy? Thank you
[Stomping could be heard, followed by a loud crash and a scream from an all too familiar voice. The champion then returns her attention to the screen with an innocent smile]
Well I still have the rest of the day for this so I hope you guys enjoy watching me sign papers and junk.
[And with that she focuses her attention to the stack of papers next to her.]
The glaring lights, the crowd cheering her name, it was as if time had just stopped and kept her there in that exact moment. Slowly, the blonde walked towards the stage where four other people stood, watching her.
“Are you ready for this?”
A voice came from behind her, making her jump but quickly catching herself as she saw an old man behind her. “Ah…Mr.Goodshow…”she said sheepishly “Yes, I’m ready for anything.” He just smiled at her before giving her a reassuring pat on the back. “You have nothing to worry about Cynthia. I know you, and I know your elites well enough to know that it isn’t your time to go, no yet.” This made the champion smile back at him. It’s been a while since she felt the need to worry about minor things like this. Her title of champion was indeed important to her and having to battle her elites was something that she hated doing the most. Yes they were gracious in defeat and yes, no one has beaten her yet, but just knowing that if she were to lose to one of them, it would mean leaving the league villa and not being able to be with them as a family anymore. That was something she could never handle.
A few steps forward and soon she was one stage, standing in front of a podium with about ten different microphones pointing at her. The stadium was quiet as she opened her mouth to speak.
“A few years ago…I was appointed your champion.” She said, raising her eyes to scan the crowd. Everyone was so focused on her, focused on her every single word like it was a gospel. “And I’ve been proud to hold that title. Up until now, I made sure to take care of Sinnoh and all of its inhabitants.” Her voice gaining a tad bit more confidence. “But the time has come to see if one of these four powerful trainers behind me has what it takes to join a group so elite, there’s only one member per region. Today, they may battle be for my title as champion.”
The crowd went wild after that, cheering and whooping with excitement for the events to come. Cynthia beamed, hearing her name in those cheers. They were here for her, to support her and to see how good she actually was. Cynthia mentally hoped that she wouldn’t be letting anyone down
“I devoted my life to studying legends and myths. But this time, we created our own storied and this week, we become out own legend!” she then took a step back and turned to face her elites. They were just there, smiling back at her, giving her the reassuring feeling that everything was going to be okay, nothing was going to change and she was definitely not going to lose them or lose to them.
“Good luck to all of you.”
do I even want to fucking use that? :l
So many people ask me how it feels being the only female champion. If it’s hard or if I’m ever discriminate for being the only one. I’m not.
There is no other way to answer them other than to raise my head, flash a smile and say that,
“I am living proof that women can be just as strong, and sometimes, even stronger than men. All you have to do, is work for it.”
There’s an ongoing bet between the male champions (who are of age…aka Lance Wallace Steven and Alder) that whoever gets to go out to dinner with Cynthia first gets bragging rights for a year and the losers owe the winner one “anything goes” favor.
Cynthia is unaware of all of this.
