Tamamo's assistant leads Ian and Daydre into a back room, that is lit only by a large screen on the back wall, on which is displayed a fire.
Tamamo is sprawled out on the couch below it, wearing sunglasses and an outfit like this.
In front of it is a large table, and across from the couch are a dozen folding chairs.
The assistant motions for Ian and Daydre to sit. "The others will be here shortly."
She goes back out to the front, passing Luciana and company.
Luciana leads her group into the back room.
"Well, uh, find a seat I guess?"

-Ian sits down on one of the folding chairs, and looks to where Daydre is sitting-
Me: Hi. I think I remember you from the Macraul raid... My name's Ian. What's yours?
-Corrin politely takes a seat. Tsukiko immediately rushes over to Tamamo, pulls out what appears to be a scarf from under the couch, and dons it, an act which reveals its Ersatz-sourced nature, before she goes to take a seat nearby in good ol' in-between kitsune form.-
A pink-haired individual walks into the area with a Hypno beside er, not trying to necessarily draw attention to themselves, but looking around.
-Pent takes a seat and puts his phone on his lap from which a Porygon 2 emerges-
-Lucius follows Luciana's instructions and takes a seat in the back room, looking awkwardly around at everyone else in the room.-
Lucius: Guess I missed the meet and greet, huh...?
Luciana: "I don't think there's been a meet and greet."
Tamamo: "Well..., Luciana, is this everyone?"
Luciana: "Oh! Uh, for now, I think so."
Tamamo: "Then let us get started."
There's a heavy beat of silence, before many things happen at once.
The screens turn off, and the lights turn on.
Tamamo sits up, tossing the glasses off and suddenly being in a different outfit.
Yes, she now has new glasses.
Tamamo: "... Waaait, wrong one☆"
She changes into a different outfit◊ basically instantly again.
Tamamo: "Hello☆ I'm Tamamo."

"... I'm Daydre." Daydre feels like she recognizes a few people, but doesn't quite recall their names. So instead of making things awkward by trying to guess and get them wrong, she just says nothing.
Ammy waved her hand dismissively as she reached into her bag to start putting on her getup.
Sylveon and Sunny have been here, not saying anything, even to each other. Both of them have turned human, as well.
"Sunny," the Delphox turned human introduced.
"Sylveon," the human fairy-type introduced. "But if you want a real name to put to my humanity, call me Max."

-The Porygon 2 settles on top of its trainer's head-
I'm pretty sure I don't require an introduction. You lot have met me before during assorted J-Team activities.
/Duck/: <And I'm Pentigan's helpful Porygon.>
-Lucius blinks several times at Tamamo, and takes just a moment too long to stop staring.-
Lucius: Uh... hi. You're- I mean, I'm Lucius. I, ah... I'm Luciana's... erm, actually, it might be better if you don't know me. At least for now. Um.
-He turns frantically towards Daydre.-
Lucius: Quick pretend we know each other maybe that'll make this less awkward
Maggie appears behind Lucius.
Maggie: "Well, if you need someone you know I guess there's me."
"... Wait haven't I met you before?" Daydre puts her hand on her chin.
"Oh, wait! Weren't you in that terrible movie I heard about online?"
-Lucius blinks at Daydre's remark, apparently not having realised that his reputation might come back to haunt him like this.-
Lucius: Oh, uh... yeah, that was me. Lucius Cain, star of From Space With Love. No pun intended, eheheh. Not that I was really the star, of course, but, well... yeah. Maybe you could ask me for my autograph like I'm a background actor at a con or something?
-He starts upon Maggie addressing him - not that he hadn't noticed her, but had just assumed se was about to talk to someone else.-
Lucius: Ack! I, ah... yeah, I guess there's, um. That. Yup.
-Years of agonised silence pass in a handful of seconds.-
Lucius: ...So, erm... how're you...?

-I get up from my seat and bow-
Me: It's very nice to meet you, Tamamo-sama. My name's Ian...
-Piku-chan jumps onto my shoulder-
...and this is my buddy, Piku-chan.
-Tsukiko waves to the group cheerfully.-
Tsukiko: Tsukiko here!
Corrin: I am Corrin. Although, I suppose you more or less already knew that, if you sent Tsukiko to find me.
-Eva notices the poster.-
Eva: Ok, why not? Jubilife? Nice.
-She takes the poster.-
Eva: I hope I'm not late...
-Eva knocks on the door.-
SleepyHead: <Hearing about that movie's production was something.
Maggie looks at Lucius.
Maggie: "Pretty alright, not been doing much, but saw the wanted posters and, yeah."
"Also I dunno if the reaction is indicative of surprise or just you being awkward.
Se snickers a bit.
"Oh, also, hey, Tamamo. Don't think I've met you, but hey."
Morgan would be swimming around at the beach.
Morgan: Welp. I fought Necrozma, broke my leg, took part in a raid on Macraul Manor... I need a rest.
And then she was splashed by something.
Morgan: Hey, watch it...
???: Oh, sorry.
A teenage girl was swimming nearby with a Zigzagoon and Servine swimming with her.

-I look to the door-
Me: I think we might have a few late arrivals... Should we let them in?
Taipan grabs a pokéball.
Taipan: You are relieved of duty until further notice.
Murphy: You wouldn't d—
Within seconds, the ball summoned Murphy, as indicated by a satisfying sound.
Taipan: There were several mistakes in that past interaction; I realize that now. We'll tackle our person of interest list as soon as this mission is adjourned.
Awkward silence. A grumpig emerges from one of her other pokéballs.
Mistress, telepathically: <Lemme guess, ma'am. Murphy couldn't keep his digital mouth shut?>
Taipan, mentally: <And neither could I. Make sure all subsequent mental conversations are not heard.>
Mistress: <Yes, Ms. Kwan.>
Taipan: <I'm enacting disciplinary measures but as a sign of self-regulation I'm not giving any more context for any of those details I blurted out until instructed.>
Mistress: <If it's any consolation, Ms. Kwan, you're hardly the first person to break PEFE protocol based on what I could recall back in the Stormchaser.>
Taipan: <I have to do my own computing now, though.>

Baba Yaga: -snickers- You have a tight ship, don't you. No leaks whatsoever.
Mobius: <The Walking Mountain was, what could have been considered at one point, the Alakagross equivalent of the human Titanic.>
Mobius: <A massive vanity project, to show the power, might, and ingenuity of the Empire, that was doomed not by any single miscalculation, but...>
Dune: By an iceberg on a still sea and improper welding techniques.
Mobius: <Metaphorically, yes. The project was doomed from the start by a million tiny errors that were overlooked in the project lead's zeal and confidence. Let me start from the beginning.>
Mobius: <There was an Artificer-Lord known as Kazgarak. They were the foremost in locomotive automata. They are the one that designed the gyroscopes used in our automata that prevented them from falling over, for one. He, along with the ambitious and sly governor of the region you would would come to know as the greater Orre and Angela region wanted to make a statement to the other Artificer-Lords as well as the Alakazam - that they together could make mountains move, and ride them as one would a carriage or sedan chair.>
Mobius: <So they took a mountain. I don't know where from, precisely, but the geological data from that location would be fascinating. Back on subject, they began the arduous work of hollowing out the mountain itself and creating a massive, self-sufficient workshop for the mountain's workers and artisans. To that end, required a power source, and they found one. We called it the Demon Orb.>
-Dune's quiet rage turns to indignation.-
Dune: They used actual nuclear material?!
Mobius: <What? Oh, no. No no no. An orb of supercritical uranium would not have provided enough energy to power an entire mountain. We used the Griseous Orb.>
-Dune throws his hands up.-
Dune: THAT'S EVEN WORSE!
-Mobius gives an apologetic nod.-
Mobius: <Indeed it was. You see, if you exposed the Griseous Orb to a particular electrical current, it could be used to draw Zero Point Energy. A theoretically infinite source of clean energy that could self-sustain itself for many times longer than the theoretical heat death of the universe. The only reason we got away with it as long as we did was because the Cult of Giratina, even outside the Empire's influence, was nonexistent outside of hermits and button-lipped scholars, and Giratina's influence on this plane was small.>
Dune: The orb was the biggest problem?
Mobius: <No. It was the proverbial "bad welding". We took every precaution to keep the orb pumping out energy, but never had we considered it being removed. There were no contingencies. The "iceberg", as it was, is due to a phenomenon that has reoccurred very recently, in Alola.>
Dune: ... Wait. Ultra Wormholes?
Mobius: <Not specifically Ultra Wormholes, but yes, wormholes. You see, Orre has... a very strange phenomenon in the region south of Agate Village.>
-He goes over to a map.-
Mobius: <Tell me, have you ever heard of the town called Night Vale?>
Mistress, to Taipan: <That's a barrel of laughs. Was Murphy in charge of the firewall, too?>
Murphy, from the pokéball: <I heard that!>
Taipan, to Mistress: <We are bad at this. Tell me, how the heck did we manage to keep this from Jonathan or dad?>
Mistress: <I would reckon because we didn't have established allies before. Also, work background. I mean, you did plan on giving a talk about the need for better OP-SEC at PEFE, but now that seems kind of hypocritical. But if we want any assurance of trustworthiness from that new girl, me or another psychic can probably give them a scan.>
