"I was gonna shorten it back to 'Des' so that's fine. Just officially it's gonna be Desmond." He chuckles and pets his Stunky.
There's an awkward silence for a moment. Des is trying to come up with something to talk about. He adopts a more serious look.
"So...you uh...find your father?"
Lita stifles some laughter.
"Oh I'm Gay to! My friends call me Lita."

-A Jumpluff is floating over Kat's unconscious body, slumped in a hedge. Her face somehow landed on her phone.-
BB: Nice one, Linna. Your sleep powder hasn't failed me once.
Linna: <Thanks boss!>
YB: Postman out front!
-A postman has ridden a Pelipper up to Cady's family's post box.-
BB: Oh, how very useful. We could use a Pelipper. Shyam, time for you to do your thing.
-She sends out a Malamar, who floats over to the front of the house.-
Jerry the postman: What? I don't remember any Malamar living here?
-A multicoloured light begins to emanate from Shyam's body towards Jerry and his Pelipper.-
Shyam: ~Nothing unusual here.. You're just feeling very sleepy... Very sleepy indeed...~
-Jerry's eyes glaze over and he relaxes from his defensive stance, his Pelipper undergoing a similar transformation.-
Shyam: ~Much better. Always a good thing to keep it civil.~
BB: Well done, Shyam. I always enjoy it when people see our side. Now, I need your help with transporting some important goods.
Jerry: Whatever you say.
YB: I found her house keys!
BB: Ok, you go and get the merchandise. I believe we shall have little trouble with transport now, thanks to our extra help.
YB: Delightful. I'll be on my way then.
Isbrand: "Suprise! I'm also Gay. Name's Isbrand."
-Lucius's expression darkens for a moment.-
Lucius: ...Yeah, I did. He's buried two towns over.
Lissa: Isbrand. Right. Like to ea- I mean, nice to meet you both.
-She continues to stare while Cait facepalms in the background.-
Cait: <Ah, you've gotta be shiteing me...>
-Isbrand meets Lissa's eyes and stares with the best poker face anyone has ever seen.-
"...Oh. I'm sorry..."
There's a long awkward pause.
"You, uh, wanna go get something to eat? Catch up a bit? It's been...years."
Lita's eyes quickly dart between the two, staring at each other. Waspinator keeps looking at each of them, head moving back and forth like he's watching a tennis match.
"...Wow! You can cut the 'tension' with a knife!"
Lucius: Eh, he wasn't exactly winning any "Father Of The Year" awards. But yeah, I could go for a bite to eat.
-Since Lissa's fairly obviously not looking at Isbrand's eyes, it isn't until Lita's remark that she snaps back to reality and realises she's being intensely stared at.-
Lissa: Gah! Uh, sorry.
-There's another awkward silence.-
Lissa: ...So I know this is pretty forward, but do you wanna grab a drink sometime?
"Neither is mine. Found my Mom a few months ago, though. Er, rather my interdimensional futuredaughter found my Mom. Long story. It's...been rough."
He turns to leave.
"So...what you in the mood for?"
Lita perks up at the mention of drinks.
"Oh count me in! Um...unless of course you two don't want a third wheel or anything."
<Waspinator wants to hit the bag now.>
"Oh calm down you can barely move the thing."
Isbrand: "I never turn down a chance to get shitfaced but I should warn you I have three girlfriends."
Mako: <Are...are you warning her to not expect anything or warning her she's going to get swept off her feet?>
Isbrand: "I'm not sure because I have conflicted feelings about both options"
Mako: <...aren't all your girlfriends also dating Psyche and Noelle?>
-Isbrand's face conveys how much of a dumbass she is.-
Isbrand: "...drinks, right? Know anywhere good?"
F!Grima is walking around, hands in her pockets, deep in thought.
Tamamo: "Nope☆ Uniforms are provided. Well, sort of, you have to come up with them, but the actual transformation sequence provides them."
She turns to Ian.
Tamamo: "Well, you'll all have some sort of trinket that triggers it. You'll have to have it on you, but what precisely that trinket is will be up to you☆"
"And your question?"
Skadi sends out Sorli.
Skadi: "Break the other one."
Sorli goes in for a Wood Hammer on one of the other cyborg machamps.
She looks to Jackal, and mouths 'switch frequency?'
-Lucius smiles at Tamamo.-
Lucius: Ah, got it. I recently acquired fashion sense, so I think I should be able to come up with something.
-Lucius blinks at Des, then shakes his head.-
Lucius: ...You know what, I'm not even going to question that. Anyway, Six Dudes is always pretty solid. Let's hit the road.
-Some of Lissa's confidence seems to come back as she manages a smirk.-
Lissa: In that case, what's one more? Not that I'm really looking for anything more than a good time, but that's not the point. I know this little place in town called "the first dive bar we lay eyes on". Sound like a plan?

Eva: Ooh, so they can be anything we want?
-Yellow bandit unlocks the door and starts looking around for Kat's usb. Kat's pokemon are still watching tv.-
YB: Ok Topaz, make sure those mons don't cause us a problem.
-Before the team have noticed, they have already been immobilised with stun spore.-
Topaz: <Really? You should really look away from the tv once in a while. So, anyone want to tell me which USB is the one with all the info?>
Aura: <Never... In a million years!>
-She tries to hit Topaz with psychic but instead gets a face full of pollen puff, fainting. Yellow bandit then enters the room, forming a baseball bat off of a stick in her hand.-
YB: Well, I suggest you guys be a bit more cooperative. You wouldn't want to end up like your friend here. So, which one is it? Oh, by the way, I'm destroying the computer if no one speaks up.
Savannah: <Fine. It's the blue and purple one with the lightning bolt...>
YB: Now was that so hard? I'll just be on my way now, I'll even leave the TV on for you guys!
-She goes off to take the USB.-
Carl: <Oh goodness... The show's moving onto the terrible movies playlist!>
Roger: <What fun.>

Isbrand: "Ah, a woman of culture. Let me shower and change first. I'd invite you, but I think it'll be fun to have a bit more of a slower burn."
Mako: <How are you literally worse than your brother>

-Lissa goes faintly red, but manages a mock pout in response.-
Lissa: Aww, really? I guess you're right, but just don't keep me waiting for too long. You can't keep me on the edge forever, after all~
Me: So we can transform using anything we want? Cool!
-thinks to self- I feel sorry for whoever's transformation trinket is a ham-and-cheese sandwich... Better not make my trinket that.
Isbrand: "Oh, don't worry, I won't take too long."
-She and Mako walk off.-
help there's this hot girl and I need permission to go to a cheap dive bar and get wasted with her
Mako: <Do you even have clothes that don't make you look like a biker?>
-Isbrand pokes her head out of the bathroom.-
Isbrand: "I have a full set of plate armor. And my vampire killer armor. And the spider dress. And my one-piece."
Mako: <Leather is fine.>
Jamie: <I'll edit that thing about the outfits out in post.>
"... Huh. Usually in these kinds of affairs you just get assigned one. That's neat."
-Two phones buzz at the same time, barely within arms reach of a couple of cuddling birb girls.-
Skye; Nngh. I don't wanna deal with whoever that is. Lemme cuddle longer.
-Diane, however, does reach for her phone.-
Diane: It's Isbrand.
-And Skye immediately bolts upright.-
Skye: Isbrand? What did she say?
Diane: -snickers- Relax, babe. She's got a date and is asking for the OK.
Skye: Oh. Yeah. Tell her it's totally fine.
-And she flops back into snuggle mode.-
-Drawing what appears to be an Ultra Wormhole-
Muddy: <So Tagg, you and Sol have been together longer than a lot of you humans stay married, are you guys gonna become mates in the legal sense?>
-Twitches and accidentally makes an ugly streak on the paper-
I'm not really into large ceremonies, but I figure it's a thing that will happen eventually, getting married I mean, not the ceremony. My hangups aside that's the perfect way for our enemies to try to eliminate us in one fell swoop, and getting blood on my wedding clothes would kinda suck. Their blood, not mine.
I think I'd rather figure out the marital situation first, unless we had an accident or something, but as I'll be entering my 30s two years from now it's a serious question. Like shit, my parents still have no idea that I'm dating both her and Channah, and I kinda have to tell them eventually lest they think there's something illicit going on.
I've never even met Channah's parents, either the long dead biological creepy Obscura cultist ones or her current legal ones. How might they feel about this, even leaving aside that I am... not white or [Korean].
Well you see, I've got a lot on my plate right now so... Can I maybe push this little offer down the chain?
See, I've got someone who'd just love some of this Magical Girl action so surely it wouldn't be too difficult for me to just... Get the authority to write a contract for them? Though... Hm...
-He gestures to the Porygon 2 floating over his shoulder-
Duck's always been a little better at the legal side, a joint contract-writing perhaps?
"Would the trinket need to be something we have on hand right now?" Sunny asked, fiddling with Sylveon’s ribbon despite it being on her wrist. "I have an idea of what I want to use, but if I can use it is a separate matter," she trailed off.
"Oh? Do I see someone coming out of their shell?" She chuckles and heads to some of the equipment.
"I can see she has eyes for you. Although she's got three other girlfriends, so you might need to bring your A game~."
She wraps her hands and starts laying into a heavy bag.
"I'll raincheck that drink. You have fun. And please; do things I would do."

-Isbrand walks back into the gym, clad in her usual outfit.-
-Hey, it works for a reason.-
Isbrand: "I believe we had a date, Lissa?"
-Rogue narrows their eyes.-
Rogue: Great. This is going to get messy, I can tell.
-They send out a Poke Ball, and a Toxicroak comes out.-
Toxicroak: <Heh. Right out the gate, huh?>
Rogue: Yeah. Looks like you're getting a trial by fire, Gu.
Toxicroak Gu: <Just the way I like it.>
-Corrin thinks for a moment.-
Corrin: This "borrowed" Aura — is it always the classical variety, or could we end up with anything on the spectrum?
-The flickering shifts a little, and suddenly there's a Mimikyu there-
