4C Cathedral Square, New Gotham, Sunday late afternoon
Yesterday's moving-in had been fun, but resting after was even more fun. Half Priestly's stuff wasn't unpacked yet, but since his roomies had been in residence for a while, his place was still livable.

Right now, though, they were enjoying BFF downtime at Dinah's place, with the best pizza in town.

"So, what do you think of your roomies so far?" Dinah asked him, popping open a can of soda.

[expecting one, but open for phone/text/whatevers.]

"They're cool," Priestly said. He was sprawled out as much as possible on the couch with zero intention of moving for the next several days.

Or hours. One of those.

"Tia's cool," he said. "I mean, Mark hadn't talked too much yet. He might just be really quiet? Or maybe he'd mad that he lost the bet about how I would react to Tia when she opened the door. But he and Tia have been roommates for awhile now, and Tia still likes him, so he can't be totally terrible."

Dinah was sprawled on the floor, the better to be in the path of the A/C unit, feeding pieces of pepperoni to Camille. "She seems pretty cool, yeah. A bit younger than you?" she asked, looking up at the couch. "What are those guys majoring in? And are you going to wind up feeding them both again?"

"Tia's my age, actually. She's just starting her masters program in folklore. Mark's nineteen, I think? He's about midway through an art degree. Right now. He's got a lot of different textbooks. I think he probably bounces around between majors a lot."

"Tia's hard to tell, yeah. Folklore?" She grinned. "You can tell her some urban legends out of Fandom, at least. And you wouldn't know anything about bouncing," Dinah teased.

"I've never even gotten close to declaring a major," Priestly pointed out.

"Therefore, bouncing," Dinah said, making a little ta-da! gesture with her hands that had Camille batting at her fingers. "So did you hear back from any of the places you applied to get a job yet?"

"You can't bounce if you never actually go up to the edge you're falling off of," Priestly pointed out. "I've got an interview with one of them on Tuesday."

Dinah's cellphone? ringing.

On the other end? Pouty Momoko.

"Dinah and Gabby's Home for Wayward Heroes, how may I direct your call?"

Someone picked that up from someone else's boyfriend, probably.

"Complaint bureau," Momoko replied instantly. "And then the top secret vengence department."

"Oooooo! Who are we venging against? We at the Complaint Bureau are willing to break out the silly string or fireballs, whatever's needed."

"The guy who rented out the apartment I picked. I totally found the perfect one and he said he'd hold it or me and he didn't!" Momoko sighed grumpily. "I should mail him a gremlin."

"You really should," Dinah had to agree. "Why didn't he hold it for you? I mean, why did he hand it over to someone else?"

"The other guy was all ready to move in and had lived there before or something. And since I hadn't put any deposit on the apartment, the landlord said okay."

"It was perfect. Air conditioning and they had no pet deposit. The jerk doesn't even have a pet!" Momoko bit into her cookie with a vengeance.

"Ahhhh." Dinah sympathized, sitting back up and scritching Camille under her chin. "Do you have any other options lined up yet? At all?"
