        “Why headphones?” Yosuke’s starting to read his boss’s moods, and that’s definitely curiosity.
        “I like the way they feel,” he forces himself to answer honestly.  “And the way they make me feel, I guess.”
        Apparently it’s enough of an answer for Narukami.

       Steph smiles and snuggles further into the Cloak, which is cuddling her face.  It’s the resting moment when it’s warm and comfortable and you don’t want to move.
       And then she hears a whistle.  She doesn’t feel like it, but she opens her eyes.
       There’s a skull with ornate designs on the shelf facing her.  She feels a familiar relic feel from it.
       She’s been catcalled before, but not by a skull.  That’s her life, now.
       “I know a spell to silence you, you know,” she states quietly, earning what she can feel is a glare from the skull.
       “That’s very friendly.  You’re an amazing guest,” the skull snarks at her.
       “You’re an amazing host,” she snarks right back, and narrows her eyes, thinking about how she’d gotten here.  She’d messed up a dimensional travel spell in her quest to find a viable alternative to sling rings.  Again.  She sighs deeply.  “So, would you mind telling me about your master?”

       “Why marine life?” Kakyoin whispers, staring at the ceiling.
       There’s a grumble from the next bed.  “Go to sleep, Noriaki.”
       He holds his breath for a second.  Despite how predictable Jotaro seems, he’s actually master of the unexpected.  “I can’t,” he confesses, and for one awful second stretched to infinity, the silence is accusing.  Then…
       “Did you know there’s a species of crab that will have a heart attack if you chase it too long?”
       Instantly Kakyoin sits up, eyes wide.  “You’re making that up.”
       “Nope.”  One of Jotaro’s huge hands comes to rest on the cap placed above his face.  The rest of him doesn’t move.  Then, again: “Did you know that most tidal pools are somewhat unique in their species composition, even ones only a meter apart?”
       The only interest Kakyoin usually has for this sort of thing is as an amateur artist, but he turns on his stomach, fluffing his pillow, facing his friend.  “Wow,” he breathes.
       He can hear Jotaro’s grin—and it’s actually a grin and not a smirk, for once—in the deep voice.  “Did you know that octopi can learn puzzle solutions by watching another octopus complete the puzzle?”
       “That’s really cool,” he says, eyes sparkling, and then a thought occurs to him.  “You know, if you talk about all your marine knowledge tomorrow, it’ll annoy Polnareff.”
       “Challenge accepted, jerk.”  Now it’s an affectionate smile.  Jotaro puts his hand back to his side.  “Get some sleep.”
       "Good night, Jotaro," Kakyoin whispers, already relaxing.

         Unfortunately, it turns out that the semi-eidetic memory has a flaw: to remember something, he has to actually pay attention to it first.  Maybe it’s a survival mechanism to avoid drowning in the data but it’s hard to remember to be grateful as he’s, once again, staring at a blank history test just ‘cause the class bores him.  There aren’t even HYDRA or SHIELD historical details to perk his interest.

        “Bet.”  Xander’s leaning forward, grinning mischievously.  “Tasha already has a DNA sample and is sending it to SHIELD to get it analyzed as we speak.”
        Tony doesn’t look up from the paper.  “I see that, and I’ll raise you that Mr. Eyepatch won’t believe the results and send the ferocious assassin to nab another sample from you just to see.”
        Xander frowns.  “Damn.  Curse you and your extensive gambling knowledge.”

Note to reader: this is actually partially based on real life.  My friends in Uni made me watch Buffy in the first place so you have them to thank for all this lovely fic, but also I assume they were looking out for me.  We're fairly certain that the place is situated on a Hellmouth (possibly in the abandoned and haunted high school we bought years ago and still haven't done anything with that sits on the property), which means that the watching was actually partially survival training.  We're also all entirely uncertain as to why everything in the town closed when it did, which prompted this fic.
It's maybe a bit of a nostalgia trip, but that's entirely understandable given that I attended a wedding of theirs today.  I arrived just when they started.  Talk about timing!
It's also partially prompted by The Sunnydale Press on Tumblr that got me thinking about exactly how weird it would be to live on a Hellmouth, and how much that's just normal for these people so that's all they know.  Sorry about the notes longer than fic, but enjoy!

          “What’s one of the weirdest parts about living on a Hellmouth?” Kris asks out of the blue, and it says something that Xander doesn’t even act like her suddenly popping into his office and starting a conversation midway was out of the ordinary.  ‘Course, given the content of the question, maybe it wasn’t that odd?
          “I mean, I’m sure part of it is being a rural Hellmouth, since I don’t hear about this in Cleveland, but…it took me forever and I still don’t always remember that stores aren’t closed by 3 o’clock.  I mean, dance clubs like the Bronze, sure, but things like grocery and hobby stores?”  He shakes his head.  “Thinking about it I’m pretty sure it’s because people wanted to get home well before dark to avoid being eaten, but growing up it just seemed normal ‘cause I didn’t have any frame of reference.”
          She thinks about that for a second then nods before turning around and striding back to her office.
          “That better not be a crossword answer!” he bellows after her.

        Tony’s slightly less talkative, later; when Pepper asks about Xander’s issues with alcohol, he shrugs and states blandly, “Nearly drank himself dead.  I like him better alive.”
        He really needs to stop it with the deadpan things no one should say, Pepper thinks, heart aching like Xander’s must have, and Tony steps forward and holds her.  “I’ve gone sober for him before,” he whispers, and the fact that he has family, that he did what he could to be there for the kid in a way his own father never had…
        It’s sweet and she’s pretty sure she loves him.  “You’re still in trouble for not telling me about him, but…I’m pretty sure I agree with you.  I like him being alive too,” she responds, and by the fond look and the affectionate kiss she’s got the feeling that she’s living up to his expectations.

         “We had a party without you.”
         “See, this is why I should never go anywhere.  You always plan your siestas for when I’m gone.”
         Buffy raises an eyebrow.  “You ever think there’s a connection?” she teases.
         “Buffster, light of Sunnydale, you wound me.”  He mimes grasping at his heart, which sends her into a fit of giggles.

          “You’re the CEO.  From what I’ve been reading giving yourself a higher salary is not only normal but it is expected.  The company could afford it.”  Anya’s staring at the sheets, smiling a little at the math that means wonderful money.
          “I can give you a raise, dear,” Xander says, distracted, and she frowns and looks up at him.  He’s doodling on his papers, in the middle of another fit of creativity, which is fine but he needs to be practical sometimes, too.  Her frown deepens and she resolves to bring it up again later.

It really does wonders for your self-esteem when your life is practically being dictated to you and then someone you love tells you you're doing it all wrong and also maybe suggests that you're unwanted.
Also, arguments full of hate and uncomfortable at the kitchen table.
I swear I just turn into Yugi and want to run away and fix things and running away is easier when you know words won't fix things.
Blargh.

         “I’m in the mood for hedgehog” means Tony wants Sonic.
         Pepper was shocked and a bit scandalized the first time he heard it, which pretty much is accurate for everything he had to get used to working for the Anthonia Stark.
         The phrase serves two purposes, he suspects.  First, he thinks that it’s put exactly the way it is precisely in order to get the reaction it does—shocked, scandalized, disgusted.
         Secondly, when Tony gets frustrated with her latest project and wants to take the edge off—assuming she doesn’t skip straight to the bottle or sleeping with the latest person to catch her eye—she breaks out her admittedly impressive collection of video games.  More than once Pepper’s actually fallen asleep to her swearing good-naturedly at the screen and absently eating a piece or three of utterly cold pizza.  It’s gotten easy to tune out.  Background noise.  Comforting, even.
