    Summary

    It was the best kind of day, and the worst kind of day, in the Egbert household, what with the eldest, youngest, and only of Dad Egbert's many singular children having fallen ill with a particularly ravenous sort of head cold. No, it wasn't death-inducing, thank God, nor was it particularly dangerous, but John did have a fever of 101.3 degrees (coincidentally, the same frequency as their favorite radio station), an intense pressure in their sinuses, a throbbing headache, and perhaps slightly too much benedryl in their system for them to be entirely lucid. John was, admittedly, a big fan of benedryl, particularly when sick but also just generally when the allergies flared up, which was frequently in the spring. Oh yes, allergies plus a sinus cold? No bueno.

    Summary

    Summary

    "The headlines call you Captain America's Battle-Meg, isn't that right?"

    You freeze your expression at the slang, a stony settle to your mouth and shoulders, animated warmth gone in a blink.

    "Battle-what?" The co-host teases, taking your side to recover the dead air. "Oh, hah, O'meg'a, that's what we sometimes say --"

    You shake your head, stand, long body unfolding out of the frame of the shot. "That's not -- I'm sorry, I don't agree with that language." You fumble the mic from your shirt, your 'nope, no, that's not okay to say to anyone,' distant audio. For a few suspended heartbeats the hosts keep their elbows up, eyebrows up, jaws loose, wide eyes tracking your circuit behind the cameras.

    A script shuffles, someone coughs to interrupt a furtively whispered debate.

    You return in-frame, doughnut in hand, and all but shove your face in Kathy Donnel's perfumed cleavage to clarify into her mic, audio feedback blistered by your breath as you turn your head to regard the audience over the rim of your shades, "I prefer the term Battle-Bitch."

    Summary

    Elementary school can be one hell of a trip. Especially if your name's Dave Strider, and you don't exactly have what one would call a normal family. Between government conspiracy, paranoia, and a best friend who's obsessed with ghost stories, Dave's got one hell of a fifth grade year ahead of him.

    Summary

    Roxy and Rose step forwards, finally. Rose keeps her straight face until she is feet away from you, apparently immune to Jade bouncing up and down in place or your own broad grin. She goes to extend one slim-fingered hand and then barks out a sudden laugh, losing her mask, and reaches out to pull the two of you into a hug. You laugh as well and wrap your arms around both of them, lifting the two girls off the ground and making Jade yell.

    “John,” Rose says, “Jade.” Her voice is as carefully enunciated as you expected, if raspier.

    Roxy smiles at you, her eyes crinkling at the corners, and then extends one hand to Jake.

    “Mr English, Jade, John,” she says, and smiles wider, “welcome to London.”
