-Silver frowns, grumbling as the wallet is pulled out of reach. Meanwhile, Mason blinks, and his cheeks grow a couple shades pinker as well.-
Mason: I-I-I mean, I— I could, but I can't just break out decent jokes on a whim, it's just gonna be forced and all, y'know? Hearing you laugh is better when I can tell it's real.
-His mind immediately jumps to the thousand better ways he could have said that.-
Scarlette: Oh, man, I don't think I can beat that cockiness. I'm just gonna have to find other ways to one-up you at this.
Shaun: "Is that...an invitation to...hang out?"
Shaun could you drag that sentence on any longer?
-He smiles nervously.-
Gabrielle: "I'm quaking in my boots, Scarlette. Do what you must, for I am powerless against your charms."
Mason: I-it, uh, it can be! Er, I mean.
-He coughs awkwardly.-
Mason: Yeah. Obviously. Why wouldn't it be? I'd say we already are, actually.
-Scarlette stifles a laugh.-
Scarlette: Gosh, you're so dramatic.
Me: Let's go, Piku-chan!
Mom: Be careful out there!
Me: I will, mom! Love you!
Mom: Love you too, Ian...
-Piku-chan and I head off to Accumula Town-
Me: Remember when we first arrived in Accumula Town, buddy?
Piku-chan: Yeah. How can I forget? The first town we ever went to on our journey.
Me: Yeah. I can't wait to see it again.
Shaun: "Oh, yeah. I, I guess we are, huh?"
-Tsuboi just shakes his head.-
Gabrielle: "Drama is one of the few things I excel at. And look at me. Why wouldn't I be dramatic?"
Nico: Yeah, need help with your memories?
-Silas may notice a flickering near him-
Silas had decided to come on board the ship to study some of its technologies (such as the ever elusive muffin button), but was surprised at the flickering.
Hacks took a deep breath and extended his aura outwards, hoping to see what was hiding.
Lila: Yeah. Got attacked by some psychic pokemon about ten years ago and lost all of it. I'm not looking to get it all back, but some would be nice.
Nico: Hmm... gimmie a second.
-Starts psychically feeling at her brain-
-Suddenly Olivia is behind the two-
Olivia: You. Silas Grant, correct?
Lila: ??? This feels weird... What exactly is happening?
Mason: Mm-hmm. Yeah.
Mason: ...Want to, uh, go somewhere and do, uh... something? To pass the time while that wallet dries, I mean.
-Silver groans in the background.-
Scarlette: Oh, trust me, I've been looking at you the whole time, I'm not arguing. I think it's cute.
Scarlette: But that's to be expected, coming from you.
Shaun: "We should. Do that."
-He looks around for a few seconds.-
Shaun: "Go where? In public, or alllllllooonnne..."
Gabrielle: "Well, takes one to know one, right, la petit chouchou?"
-Mason blinks a couple times.-
Mason: (Did he— no don't be fucking dumb Mason there's no way he was implying that get your head out of the fucking gutter)
Mason: Iiiiii mean, we could, like. See a movie. Or something. That'll pass the time. Right? Yeah. That's how time works.
-Scarlette's cheeks tint.-
Scarlette: I'm gonna be honest, I don't actually know what that means, but it sounds adorable.
Shaun: "Yeah. That's a thing people do. Just two dudes watching a movie."
5 millimeters apart because they're both gay
Shaun: "...I haven't been to a movie theatre in a while. What do you want to see?"
Gabrielle: "Like most things, it sounds better in Kalosian. Roughly translated I called you a cute little cabbage."
"Again, it sounds much sexier and refined in Kalosian."
Silas nearly jumped and turned around, both hands ready, one at his belt and one at his holster, he took a deep breath and calmed down, "I am."
~5 bucks says this relates to your superhero gig,~ Hacks said noting a common pattern that had been appearing recently.
Silas looked to Hacks, then to Olivia, "It is becoming alarmingly common... is this about that?"
Mason: Uh... have you seen the new [X-Men] movie yet? Because that's something. Yeah.
-Scarlette can't help but break out into barely suppressed laughter.-
Scarlette: Oh my gosh. That's the best. I love it.
Shaun: "It sure is. It's a date."
-Shaun's eyes widen and he suddenly wish he had a scarf covering his face.-
Too late to take that back, dumbass
-Gabrielle grins devilishly and pushes her suddenly-glinting glasses up the bridge of her nose.-
Gabrielle: "Well, if you like it that much, why don't you put your number in my phone and I'll save that as your contact name?"
-Mason briefly mentally short-circuits.-
Mason: (A date? He actually— I'm not imagining that, right? He just called it a date and he's acting like that and wait a fucking second I thought he was straight and already had a girlfriend and—)
-His face has thoroughly turned a lovely shade of red.-
Mason: A... date? Like, in the actual, y'know, date sense?
(...Wait a fucking second that other comment was implying—)
-Scarlette matches Gabrielle's grin with one of her own.-
Scarlette: I was wondering when you'd actually ask that.
-Her phone's already on the table in front of Gabby.-

-Shaun is a bundle of nervous emotions.-
Gabrielle: "Already a step ahead of me?"
-She slides her phone across the table and types her own number into Scarlette's phone.-
Mason: ...Uhhhh. N-not my thing but you do you I guess?
-Wait for it...-
Mason: ...Oh shit.
-There it is.-
-Mason sorta starts stammering again.-
-And thus, numbers are traded!-
Scarlette: Damn shame we forgot that last time, that's like five months I could have been seeing your pretty face around more often.
Romance: "LET ME IN! LET ME INNNN!"
Intellect: "I HAVE TO TAKE PRECAUTIONS"
-Templar looks on amused, watching the two aspects wrestle in front of the fountain.-
Shaun.exe has encountered an error and must restart
Anger: <WILL ONE OF YOU DO YOUR FUCKING JOB>
-Sanity steps forward calmly and grabs Templar's sword.-
Sanity: "One of you is going to take command or I will send you both to the Wastelands."
-The Big Ball of Violence stops, Romance seizing the oppurtunity to throw Intellect off and rush to the controls.-
Shaun: "Don't make me stop that stammering."
"So the answer is yes, if you're interested, it is an actual date."
Romance: "Nailed it."
-Everyone shakes their heads.-
Gabrielle: "Truly. This is a step up from seeing you in my dreams."

Mason: I-I, uh, I-I mean, if it's just you, then uh, sure, uh, I don't wanna— don't want to get in the way of— uh—
-And his thought processes snap back into functionality.-
Mason: -with slightly more of a squeak to his voice than he'd particularly like- Y-yeah, that'd be. Nice. Uh holy shit um.
-At this point, the presence of a Sneasel has been entirely forgotten, which is good because said Sneasel is already gone and avoiding being stuck as a third wheel to these absolute disasters.-
Scarlette: Oh, you'll definitely have to tell me all about those dreams sometime. For now...
-She takes Gabrielle's hand, kissing it.-
Scarlette: I'll see you later.

Shaun: "Oh thank god I was so worried"
-The Golispod has followed the Sneasel to stop any more pickpocketing.-
Gabrielle: "Mmmm. I'll be keeping an eye out for you."
-Mason coughs, clearing his throat.-
Mason: S-so, uh. Gonna be honest, this was— this was not how I expected any of this to, y'know, go. I thought you were totally straight and I didn't have the slightest fucking chance.
-They glance away, face glowing red.-
Scarlette: You better, otherwise I'm gonna be super let down.
-She winks, and wanders off.-

Shaun: "I didn't expect this either. Also I used to be straight but guess what"
