Synopsis
Everyone’s playing with fire, but when the ramble room burns down, who’s to blame? Will they be able to rebuild?

Ramble Milestones
-First appearance of Brady.
-Flamey arrives.

This was my first attempt to get back into the rambles after my life got a little chaotic. My computer had died, and I was changing colleges and hanging out with some new people so I had less time for writing. So I used the ramble room burned down plot as an excuse for my absence. Some of the ways the fires start are awful – the worst being Selphie and her tap shoes. Seriously? That sounds plausible! My favorites are Rufus and co. burning money, and Irvine’s inside marshmallow roast. Why does everyone run away after they start a fire?! It’s called a fire extinguisher people! I also had to roll my eyes at Zell’s rock tumbler – I had one as a kid, and they take forever. Because you know all kids have patience! Two other things I like about this ramble are Sephiroth and Flamey (he has some great lines here) and Cait Sith and his Gray Poupon (so random!) Brady also shows up in this ramble – my then boyfriend, now husband. He hates Algus and it was supposed to be a running gag that he was always trying to kill him, but that never panned out. Neither did trying to restart the rambles this way. It would take me something else to really get me back in the swing.

(a snippet from lark’s journal entry, dated recently.)

I can’t believe it’s been 3 months.

This summer there was no vacation. There were no crazy shenanigans. There was no anniversary.

When I think about it, I still can’t believe it happened.

Everything…gone. And it’s only now things are getting back to normal.

It isn’t pleasant to remember, but impossible to forget…

(flashback to may 30th, 2002. seph, vin and auron are in the ramble room.)

Sephiroth: “Vincent, a thought crossed my mind the other day.”

Vincent: “And what would that be, angel?”

Sephiroth: “I realized that all of us have been living in this ramble room for two years now.”

Auron: “I haven’t.”

Sephiroth: “All of us that *matter* anyway. My point is, I’m surprised nothing horrible has happened yet.”

Vincent: “Dare I ask your definition of horrible, angel?”

Sephiroth: “You know. The place hasn’t like burned down or anything.”

Vincent: “Ah, I see.”

Auron: “Knock on wood.” *knocks on wood*

Vincent: “I believe that’s fake.”

Auron: “Close enough.”

(there’s a knock at the door.)

Sephiroth: “Vincent, get the door.”

Vincent: “But angel, you’re standing right next to it.”

Sephiroth: “Yeah, but…just do it.”

(vincent opens the door and there’s a delivery guy there.)

Guy: “Uh, hi.” *checks clipboard* “I have a delivery for a Mr. Sephiroth.”

Sephiroth: *eyes light up* “Ooh, that’s me!”

Guy: “Sign right here.” *holds out clipboard*

Sephiroth: *jumps up and signs it*

Vincent: *sad sigh*

Sephiroth: “Where’s my package?”

Guy: “Out front.” *goes off mumbling* “Thank god I’m getting rid of this thing.”

(so seph, vin and auron run outside where there’s a huge crate w/ a few holes in it. the crate is labelled ‘danger’ in several places and there’s smoke coming out of one of the holes in it.)

Sephiroth: *happy gasp* “Oh, Vincent, it came! It finally came!” *skips towards it*

Auron: “…Dare I ask what that box contains?”

Vincent: “…It can’t be. It just can’t be.”

(seph stands with a happy grin w/ the thing he just released from the box. it’s a big black dragon.)

Sephiroth: “My fire breathing dragon!” *runs up and hugs him* “I’ll call you Flamey and I’ll hold you and pet you and feed you and love you forever and ever and ever!”

Vincent: “…Oh god. We’re doomed.”

(meanwhile inside….reno slams down an empty bottle of vodka.)

Reno: *slurs* “There. That’s the last bottle. Now there’s room in my liquor cabinet for more…uh…stuff. Now where did I put my… *he fumbles around the empty liquor bottles and comes up with a box of matches* “Hey! You’re not the remote! *opens it up and takes one out* “Hey, buddy! I’m talkin’ to you! Where’s the remote?!” *pause* “That’s it! You’ve screwed me for the last time!” *he lights it* “Ha ha! Feel the pain! Hahahahahaha–” *he passes out dropping the match onto the carpet*

……………………………………………………………………………………………

(meanwhile, twilight is standing before his “captive audience” of barret, cid, red and opal.)

Twilight: *dramatically* “And then, you’ll never guess what *I* the amazing Twilight did next!”

Cid: “@$%@#%^$@^@$%^#@$%@#^$@&#$&?”

Twilight: “….No.”

Barret: “Yo! Wookiee/Ewok! You likin’ the story of how stick boy here burned down yo’ house?”

Red: “I am *not* a “Wookiee/Ewok” and that was *not* my house.”

Twilight: “Shut up, dorks. You’re screwin’ up my groove!” *clears throat* Anyway, then, I, the great Twilight XyXia, pulled out a match like so.” *he takes out a match* “And I magically lit it using my superior Force talent.” *he does so* “And then, without any thought of mercy, I dropped it on their piece of crap stick and mud low income housing like so.” *he does so*

Opal: “Twilight! What are you doing?! Put that out before you burn the ramble room down!”

Twilight: “Relax, sweetie. The great Twilight has it covered.” *he stamps on it but it only spreads the fire* “Uh…this is part of the act.”

Barret: “Yo! He’s gonna kill us all!” *pulls on red’s leash* “Let’s go, Wookie/Ewok!”

Red: *as he’s being dragged away* “I’d rather be left here to die.”

Cid: *fleeing and madly waving his arms* “#@^%@#&^$@^@#$%^@^@^#%^#$%^*&$%!”

Opal: “I have to find a fire extinguisher!” *runs off*

Twilight: *following* “Well, I said it was a ‘full reenactment’! It’s not like I ripped people off for a change!”

…………………………………………………………………………………………..

(meanwhile, in the backyard, zidane is standing before a big pile of leaves. Steiner and Vivi are with him. Zidane looks exhausted and sweaty like he’s been working all day.)

Zidane: *panting* “There. It’s done. I raked the whole damn yard, and if Algus doesn’t fork over a Twix bar, I’m gonna kill him.”

Vivi: “That sure is a lot of leaves, Zidane.”

Zidane: “Yeah. Why does the yard have to be so friggen big?”

Steiner: “Now that you have completed the first part of your task, you still have the second phase.”

Zidane: “What the hell are you talking about?”

Steiner: “You have to get rid of them.”

Zidane: “What?!”

Steiner: “You have to bag and dispose of them properly.”

Zidane: “Screw that! This giant pile’ll do fine.”

Vivi: “But Zidane, if you don’t get rid of the leaves, Algus may not give the candy.”

Zidane: *frowns* “You’re probably right.” *pause* “Hmmm…” *eyes light up* “Of course! Fire!”

Steiner: “Oh no.”

Zidane: “I’ll just burn them! C’mon, Vivi! Use your magic.”

Vivi: *looks scared*

Zidane: “C’mon, Vivi! Just do it. Help out a friend.”

Vivi: *wrings hands*

Steiner: “Zidane! I will not idly stand by and watch you harass master Vivi into performing criminal acts! You know you’re not supposed to burn leaves without a permit.”

Zidane: “I have a permit.”

Steiner: “You have not!”

Zidane: “Oh shut up, Rusty.” *pleads to vivi* “C’mon, buddy. Just one little spark and we can go inside and make milkshakes.”

Vivi: “…….” *sigh* “Okay, Zidane.”

Zidane: “Thanks, Vivi! I owe ya one!”

(vivi casts a fire spell and lights up the leaves. the whole thing is suddenly consumed in flames, and they watch in horror as it spreads to the grass.)

Zidane: “Oh whoop.”

Steiner: “You idiot! This is all your fault!”

Vivi: *crying* “No! It’s mine!”

Zidane: “Forget it! Run!”

(they quickly flee)

……………………………………………………………………………………………

(meanwhile, inside, zell enters a room armed with a box that says ‘rock tumbler’ on it. he happily goes over and plops down on the floor, unpacking the box’s contents.)

Zell: “This is gonna be so cool! I’m gonna make so much cool jewelry with this rock tumbler! Then I can sell it on the corner where Rufus sold all that lemonade and make lots of money for comics!”

(he looks at the nearby socket, where there’s many, many things plugged into one outlet.)

Zell: “What the heck is all this stuff?” *he pushes some of the wires aside* “Oh, look. There’s one more socket left.”

(he grabs the plug and plugs in the rock tumbler. nothing bad happens.)

Zell: “Cool! Now to turn it on and wait only two weeks for nice, shiny rocks.”

(he turns it on and suddenly sparks fly, starting several small fires on the carpet.)

Zell: *wide eyed* “Oh snap….” *scrambles to his feet* “If anyone asks, Seifer did it.” *runs off*

……………………………………………………………………………………….

(meanwhile, in reeve’s office, we have reeve himself leaning against the door looking nervous, a cigarette in hand. there’s banging at the door.)

Cait Sith’s voice: “Open the door, you stupid loser or I’ll break it down!”

Reeve: “No! You’re not getting my Grey Pupon!”

Cait Sith: “That’s what you think, loser! Now open up before I break it down!”

Reeve: “No! Stop it! Leave me alone!”

(we hear even louder banging and suddenly the door flies open. reeve gets pushed to the floor, and his cigarette goes flying, igniting a trashcan full of paper. we then hear cait sith’s evil laughter…)

………………………………………………………………………………………….

(meanwhile, in laguna’s room, we have laguna, kiros and ward crowded around….an easy bake oven?!)

Laguna: “This was the best birthday present ever!”

Kiros: “Ward says that’s pretty sad, considering you got it when you were ten.”

Laguna: “And yet it still works.” *rubs hands together* “So, what should I make?”

Kiros: “Ward says you should make yourself a brain.”

Laguna: *frowns* “That’s not very nice, Ward.”

Ward: *hits self in head*

Laguna: “Ooh! I know! I’ll make a soufflé!” *starts to dig up ingredients*

Kiros: “Ward says this is a disaster waiting to happen.”

Laguna: *pouring way too much flour into a bowl* “What would make Ward say that? *mixes everything together* “There! It’s ready to be easy baked!” *he puts it in the oven* “Hmmm…” *taps chin thoughtfully* “I wonder how long you’re supposed to cook this for? It’s not in the manual.”

Kiros: “Ward says take your best judgement and do the total opposite.”

Laguna: *chuckles* “Now why would Ward say that?” *turns the timer to 4 hours* “That should do it. Always better to overcook than undercook!”

Kiros: *mutters* “So says ‘cooking for idiots’.”

Laguna: “What was that, Kiros?”

Kiros: “Ward says shut up.”

……………………………………………………………………………………………

(meanwhile, we see lark and shell standing around a small trashcan. shell is dabbing at her eyes with a tissue. lark is dropping credit cards into it.)

Shell: “I haven’t even christened half of those yet! You’re killing them before their time!”

Lark: “I’ve had enough of your sick rituals, Shell. Rude is in debt more than he can pay off in a lifetime already.”

Shell: “Oh, that’s just because he doesn’t work hard enough.”

Lark: “Sorry, Shell, but the shopping spree is over.”

Shell: “You aren’t burning Rude’s credit cards.”

Lark: “…Shut up.”

Shell: “Aren’t you supposed to cut them up?”

Lark: “……………….Shut up.”

Shell: “Isn’t burning plastic bad?”

Lark: “I don’t know! What am I, a chemistry expert?! Now let’s go before we inhale too many toxic fumes.” *starts to go*

Shell: “Shouldn’t you put the fire out first?”

Lark: “Eh, it’ll burn out on it’s own.”

(they leave)

………………………………………………………………………………………

(meanwhile, Katie and irvine have just been grocery shopping and plop down on the floor. irvine reaches into a bag and pulls out a bag of marshmallows.)

Irvine: “Yee haw! I haven’t had a real indoor marshmallow roast since my brothers and I burned down our barn!”

Katie: “Yeah! I love marshmallows! I’ve been gathering sticks for a week. You know, the whole yard is covered in leaves.”

Irvine: “Yeah, someone should take care of that. Isn’t that what Zidane’s for?”

Katie: “I guess.” *starts taking sticks out of a bag* “Irvine, are you sure you know what you’re doing? I mean, I never paid much attention to those fire safety videos, but I don’t think you’re supposed to start fires inside.”

Irvine: “Don’t worry. We only burned down the barn that once.”

Katie: “And how many times have you done this?”

Irvine: “….Once.”

Katie: *shrugs* “Okay, whatever.”

(they pile a bunch of sticks in the middle of the room and take a stick each to put marshmallows on.)

Irvine: *takes out lighter* “You see, baby, the trick is to only have a small flame, so the fire doesn’t get outta control.” *he lights the sticks* “See? Perfect.”

(they put their sticks over the flame.)

Irvine: “So…what’s new with…stuff?”

Katie: “Nothin’. What’s new with you?”

Irvine: “Nothin’.” *long pause* “You…. wanna have sex with me?”

Katie: “I have a boyfriend, remember?”

Irvine: “Oh. Right.” *pause* “He doesn’t have to know.”

Katie: *sighs* “Irvine…” *suddenly her eyes widen in horror* “Irvine! Your marshmallow is on fire!”

Irvine: *jumps to his feet and starts waving it around madly* “Ahhh!!! No! My precious marshmallow!”

(flames go spreading everywhere…)

……………………………………………………………………………………………..

(meanwhile, in tseng and reeve’s bathroom… there have been many candles set up around the room. tseng is lighting the last few.)

Tseng: “Now *this* is romantic.” *smiles* “Thank you Cosmo magazine.” *he blows out the last match and takes a look around* “Reeve will be so impressed.” *pauses and frowns* “Hm…. Where is Reeve?”

(he goes to take a step, and steps on some fancy soap. with a yelp, he falls backward, arms flailing, and gets knocked out cold on the floor. but not before his arm knocks one of the lit candles onto the bathmat…)

……………………………………………………………………………………….

(meanwhile, speaking of poor reeve, he’s still unconscious, and cait sith, whose mouth is covered in grey pupon, is now hopping around the room with a can of lighter fluid.)

Cait Sith: *singing* “Lightin’ Reeve on fire! Lightin’ Reeve on fire! Watch the loser go KABOOM! ‘Cause I’m lightin’ Reeve on fire!”

(he stops, throws the empty can aside and takes out a match.)

Cait Sith: “Any last words?” *mimicking reeve’s voice* “Yes, Cait Sith, you wonderful god like creature! I’m a horrible loser who deserves to die! And Tseng is fat and ugly!” *back to his own voice* “Yes… Just as I thought. Hehehehehe!”

(just before he can drop the match, reeve sits up, and rubs at his forehead)

Reeve: “Ow… What happened?” *turns and sees cait sith dropping the match* “Oh holy materia!” *scrambles to his feet* “TSENG!!!” *runs out*

Cait Sith: *hopping after him* “No! Wait! You’re supposed to die, fatso!”

(and just as he leaves, the room goes up in flames…)

…………………………………………………………………………………………….

(meanwhile…in another room, the throughly disturbing trio of belle, nips and bernie sit around. bernie and nips are on the couch. belle’s on the floor next to the playstation, wagging her tail.)

Belle: “I wanna play.”

Bernie: “You can’t play, you stupid idiot. You can’t hold the controller. Now go find some snacks.”

Belle: “Nips, I wanna play.”

Nips: “Nips has better things to worry about than your lowly concerns. Better things…”

Belle: “Nips, I’m sicka trying to help you take over the world.”

Nips: “What was that, Belle? What was that….?”

Belle: “Uh… I said I love you.”

Bernie: “I said that too.”

Nips: “That’s what I thought… That’s what I thought…”

Belle: “Fine. If I can’t play, no one can.” *starts to chew through the wires*

Bernie: “After you eat that, will you find some snacks?”

Belle: *leaving the smoking wires behind* “Let’s go eat grass.”

Bernie: “It’s better than nothing.”

(they all leave as a small fire begins to form…)

…………………………………………………………………………………………..

(meanwhile…outside….selphie is sitting next to the driveway strapping on some tap shoes…)

Selphie: “This is gonna be so cool! You’re never too old to learn something new!” *she stands up* “Better practice though, so I can keep up with the other kids.”

(she walks over to the driveway and makes a few tentative shuffles.)

Selphie: “Tee hee! This is nothing a SeeD can’t handle!”

(she starts to tap a little faster…then faster and faster around the driveway. she taps over to the edge of the driveway, shuffling as fast as she possibly can. she’s tapping so fast in fact that she’s making sparks on the driveway that are going onto the grass…)

………………………………………………………………………………………..

(meanwhile, in another room that has been completely darkened we have Noelle, lulu, rinoa, quistis, tifa and Lizzie sitting around. the only form of lighting is a LOT of candles that have been put around the room. there are so many candles, in fact, that it’s hard to walk in the room. in fact, the only mentioned character above who is actually in the room is Lizzie. the others are in the doorway…)

Noelle: “Um, are we having a seance or not?”

Lizzie: “Yup. Let me just finish lighting these last few candles.”

Rinoa: “Uh, Lizzie? Don’t you think you have enough?”

Lizzie: *blink blink* “Do you guys want to do this right or not?”

Tifa: “Where did you get all these?”

Lizzie: “Quistis gave me a bunch.”

Rinoa: “Oh, that was nice of you, Quistis!”

Quistis: *shifty eyes* “Yeah… I know…”

Noelle: “Hey, Lizzie. Who are we trying to contact again?”

Lizzie: “Sephiroth.”

Lulu: “But he’s alive. In fact he’s right outside fussing over his new pet.”

Rinoa: “You can see him through the window.” *points*

Lizzie: *shuts blinds* “Shut up, crackwhore. My mind’s been made up. Now come in so we can get this started.”

(nobody moves)

Lizzie: “Come on! The spirits are restless creatures!”

Tifa: “But…look at all the candles.”

Lizzie: “….Yeah….”

Rinoa: “I’m scared to walk in there.”

Lulu: “I second that.”

Lizzie: “Why?”

Quistis: “Well… There are a whole lot of them.”

Noelle: “Yeah. Someone could easily knock one over.”

Rinoa: “Yeah. And fire is bad.”

Noelle: “Thank you, crackwhore.”

Rinoa: “Stop that!”

Lizzie: “Would you sissies get in here? Geez, you’re acting like a bunch of girls.”

Tifa: “Um…we are girls.”

Lizzie: “You know what I meant.”

Tifa: “No, not really.”

Lizzie: “Come on!”

(the girls exchange worried looks before they start carefully stepping around the candles on the floor. they walk very slowly, often having to balance on one leg and struggling to not fall down. lulu goes last, and she’s having the hardest time ’cause she’s in that huge dress…all the other girls make it to the clearing and they stop and wait and watch as lulu makes her way over.)

Lulu: “I don’t know why I wear this thing.”

Rinoa: “It really does make you look like a skankity skank skank.”

Noelle: “Shut up, crackwhore.”

Tifa: “You’ve almost made it, Lulu! Just a little further!”

(lulu finally makes it, and is a little out of breath.)

Lulu: “Thank god. I was sure I was gonna set the ramble room on fire.”

(she then drops her dress, and um…well, knocks a bunch of candles over.)

Lulu: *freezes* “Oh…crap….”

……………………………………………………………………………………………..

(meanwhile…in loser land…the losers are all sitting outside surrounding a little camp circle. kuja and seymour do not look too happy.)

Kuja: “Why are we doing this again?”

Hojo: “Because it’s a beautiful day, lamb chop. With the sun and the sky and the clouds and so on and so forth!”

Seymour: *grimaces* “I’m getting bitten by bugs.”

Kuja: “That’s because your perfume attracts disgusting creatures like you.”

Seymour: “Then why aren’t you all over me?”

Kuja: “You bitch!”

Hojo: “Darling angel of death, please! Can’t we have a pleasant day for once?”

Heidegger: “Gya haa haa! Picnic basket!”

Nida: “Hey!! He ate our whole lunch!”

Heidegger: “Gya haa haa! Strawry!”

Nida: “And he ate the freakin’ basket too!”

Scarlet: *looks bored* “Too bad I left my surprised face inside.”

Heidegger: “Gya haa haa! Stinky helped!”

Stinky: *snort*

Nida: “I had animal crackers in there that were all for me!”

Heidegger: “Gya haa haa! It’s like eating a zoo!”

Nida: “You jerk!” *pouts*

Kefka: *is shredding leaves right in front of his face and watching intently* “Colors!!! Hehehehehehe!!!!!”

Scarlet: “What fun I’m having.” *sigh* “Getting frozen and eaten alive by bugs.”

Nida: *perks up* “Cold? I’ll fix that!”

(he grabs two sticks off the ground and goes into the middle where he promptly kneels down and starts rubbing them together.)

Scarlet: “Oh god, you’ve *got* to be kidding me.”

Nida: “I know how to do this! I learned a whole bunch of survival stuff at Garden! So that means if I get lost in the woods with Squall and a bunch of people, we’ll have to eat him first ’cause he doesn’t know anything.”

Hojo: “If you know so much about nature, wouldn’t you be able to get by without eating anyone?”

Nida: *shifty eyes* “…Shut up.”

(he starts to furiously rub the sticks together. nothing’s happening)

Scarlet: “The only thing you’re gonna set on fire is yourself or the grass.”

Nida: “Shut up, whore! It’s more than you can do!”

Scarlet: “All I need is the power to go inside and get myself a sweater.”

Nida: “Wait! There’s smoke!”

(sure enough…there is smoke…but…)

Kuja: “You did light the grass on fire, you idiot. Now put it out. It smells worse than Seymour.”

Seymour: “Stop knocking my perfume!”

Kefka: *watching intently* “Hehehehehehehehe…. Flames….”

Nida: *dropping sticks* “Eh. Screw it. Let’s go inside and watch TV.”

Hojo: “Shouldn’t you put out the fire you started first?”

Nida: “Eh. It’ll go out on it’s own.”

Hojo: “Fine.”

Scarlet: “Works for me.”

Kuja: “I’m not about to ruin my shoes putting out a fire.”

Seymour: “For once, I’m with you.”

Heidegger: “Gya haa haa! Come, Stinky! There are more snacks inside!”

Stinky: *snort*

Kefka: *following closely* “Skunk…. Hehehehehe!!”

Stinky: *looks scared*

(they all stupidly go inside…)

…………………………………………………………………………………..

(meanwhile, inside, tidus, wakka and kimahri are crowded around a microwave)

Wakka: “This is cool, ya?”

Tidus: “It’s a good way to kill ten minutes.”

Kimahri: “……………”

Tidus: “Right, Kimahri?”

Kimahri: “Kimahri still bored.”

Tidus: “Aw, you’re no fun.”

Wakka: “Melting little green men in the microwave… I feel just like a kid again.”

Tidus: “Yeah, it’s fun to ruin stuff.”

(he presses a button on the microwave and it starts up.)

Wakka: “So…you know what’s gonna happen?”

Tidus: “….No. I thought you did.”

Wakka: “I thought Kimahri did, ya.”

Both: *look at kimahri*

Kimahri: “Kimahri had nothing to do with this and you know it.”

(the microwave stops)

Wakka: “Ooh, it’s done, ya!”

(tidus opens up the microwave, and yeah, you guessed it…the little green army man is in flames)

Tidus: “Oh…damn…”

Wakka: *nervously* “Uh…what now, man?”

Tidus: *pause* “Now… ….We run. We run and pretend this never happened.”

Wakka: “Got it, ya.”

(they flee.)

Kimahri: *sigh* “Kimahri think this bad idea…”

(and he leaves as well….)

…………………………………………………………………………………………….

(meanwhile outside, we have rude and elena crowded around a large box of fireworks…)

Elena: “Why are you setting off fireworks for Shell’s birthday now, Rude? It’s not till the end of June.”

Rude: “She says it has to be a month long celebration.”

Elena: “…Oh. A celebration that includes fireworks, I’m guessing.”

Rude: “She said that her birthday should get the same treatment as the 4th of July.”

Elena: “….Oh. Okay. I don’t really know how to set off fireworks, but I’ll help you.”

Rude: “It’s easy. You just light it and then step back so you don’t die.”

Elena: “Okay.” *gulp* “Sounds easy enough. Nothing a Turk can’t handle.”

(they take some stuff out of the box and set it up. rude then takes out a lighter as elena steps back. he lights it and then runs back to join her.)

Elena: “Good job, Rude!”

(just as she says that, it topples over and ignites the grass.)

Elena: “Uh oh.”

Rude: *looks horrified*

Elena: “What now?”

Rude: “Run. Just freakin’ run.”

(and they do.)

………………………………………………………………………………………..

(and in another interior room, we have algus, rufus, edgar and setzer all throwing money into a garbage can for some odd reason…)

Rufus: “Hate to say it’s that time of year again.”

Algus: “Yes. I just have far too much money.”

Edgar: “It’s really such a bother when you run out of things to spend it on…”

Rufus: “Tell me about it. I have so much money that the bank won’t even take it. So I’ve got no choice but to burn it.”

Setzer: “Well… You COULD always give it to charity.”

Rufus: “Yeah, but what kind of satisfaction do I get out of that?”

Setzer: “The satisfaction that you helped someone?”

Rufus: “Nah… I get more satisfaction by burning it.”

Algus: “Here here. Those peasants can help themselves by dancing in the street.”

Edgar: “I don’t suppose we can think of anyone else who might need it.”

Setzer: “Yeah. What about Zidane? He always seems to be pretty poor.”

Algus: “Nonsense! I give him all the candy he can possibly handle.”

Rufus: “What’s the matter, Setzer? Don’t want to burn your money?”

Edgar: “Give it to me, dear. I’ll burn it for you.”

Setzer: *pouts* “I can burn my own money.” *tosses some in the garbage can*

Rufus: “….Did you just call him ‘dear’?”

Edgar: *shifty eyes* “No… I said…uh…beer.”

Setzer: “Yeah. Beer. That’s manly.”

Rufus: *is confused* “…Okay…”

Algus: “I think this can is about full. What do you say we put this useless currency out of it’s misery?” *lights match*

Setzer: *turns away* “I can’t watch.”

(algus drops the match in. edgar, rufus and setzer watch it burn for like .3 seconds before…)

Algus: “Well, who’s up for a game of chess?”

Rufus: “I know I am!”

Edgar: “I’ll play the winner!”

Setzer: “Uh, what about the fire?”

Algus: “That’s for the peasants to worry about.” *heading towards the door* “Where’s that slave Zidane?” *leaves*

(the others unwisely follow…)

…………………………………………………………………………………………

(and meanwhile, outside on another part of the ramble grounds…we have shadow and locke…shadow is fanning a small fire. locke stands back watching, a confused look on his face… interceptor is taking a nap by his master…)

Locke: “Uh, Shadow? What are you doing?”

Shadow: “Getting help.” *looks up* “Yes… They’ll see my smoke signals and come…”

Locke: “Uh…*why*, pray tell, are you ‘getting help’?”

Shadow: “Because they’re after me again.”

Locke: “…Uh…who’s after you?”

Shadow: “*Them*.”

Locke: “…Okay… And…uh…who, may I ask, is gonna come help you?”

Shadow: “…They are.”

Locke: “…Okay, I don’t wanna know, so I’m gonna stop asking.”

Shadow: “Interceptor’s helping.”

Locke: “Uh… I think he’s sleeping.”

Shadow: “No! Can’t you see he’s busy?”

Locke: *looks at the dog who snorts in his sleep* “Actually, no.”

Shadow: “I have work to do too.” *lays down*

Locke: “…I am so lost.”

Shadow: *snore*

Locke: *shrugs* “Better sleep off my confusion.” *pause* “Or *work* it off.” *chuckles and lays down*

(they all sleep while the fires keep burning…)

…………………………………………………………………………………………

(and outside in yet *another* area, we have seifer kneeling down on the ground, a magnifying glass in hand. Ashley lounges nearby, soaking up the sun.)

Seifer: *mumbles to himself* “Heh heh heh! Your time has come now, Zell! Now we’ll see who deserves to be a SeeD more!”

Ashley: “Seifer! Are you burning ants that you’re pretending to be Zell again?”

Seifer: *shifty eyes* “…No…”

(seifer, not the brightest knife in the drawer, as we know, is not watching what he’s doing, and is accidentally burning the grass.)

Seifer: *finally noticing* “Oh, crap!” *jumps up* “Code red!! Code red!” *runs away*

Ashley: “What the hell are you yelling about? You’re disrupting my ‘me’ time, you jerk! We talked about this!” *sits up and sees the fire* “Huh.” *blink blink* “Oh crap is right.” *scrambles up and runs*

………………………………………………………………………………………..

(and finally, we’re back to sephiroth, and his fire breathing dragon…)

Sephiroth: *is trying to brush flamey*

Vincent: “Uh…angel… I don’t think you can brush him.”

Sephiroth: “What do you think I’m doing right now, Vincent?”

Vincent: “But angel, he doesn’t have any fur.”

Sephiroth: “Quiet, Vincent. Flamey doesn’t like the sound of your voice.” *like he’s speaking to a baby* “Isn’t that right, Flamey?”

Flamey: *breathes fire*

Auron: “That looks dangerous.”

Sephiroth: “You’re dangerous. Shut up.”

(flamey suddenly lets out a huge breath of fire that puts sephiroth’s famous tree he likes to hide in up in flames)

Sephiroth: “Ack! My tree!”

Vincent: “Angel! Your tree!”

Sephiroth: “I know! I just said that!”

Flamey: *starts to run away*

Sephiroth: “No! Flamey! Come back!”

Flamey: *lights up half the ramble room before spreading his wings and taking off*

Sephiroth: *trying in vain to run after it* “Flamey! No!!” *falls to his knees* “No… I didn’t even get a chance to kill anyone with him!”

Vincent: *frantically* “Angel! Half the ramble room’s on fire!!”

Sephiroth: “My poor helpless dragon. He never hurt anyone! He never even had the chance!” *sobs*

Auron: *fleeing the scene* “Don’t forget to stop, drop and roll if you’re on fire!!”

Vincent: *also fleeing* “Come on, angel.”

Sephiroth: *looks up* “Huh?” *sees ramble room* “Oh, man! Look what he was capable of!” *pause* “Ack! My house! Vincent!” *runs after vincent*

…………………………………………………………………………………………

(about 5 minutes after this all simultaneously happens, we see squall walking up. he has cards in his hand and is idly flipping through them)

Squall: “Stupid level one monster cards. Nida’s deck sucks. He couldn’t win using the random rule and wall with same.”

(he looks up and sees that the ramble room is on fire.)

Squall: *blink blink*

(he looks left.)

Squall: *blink blink*

(he looks right.)

Squall: “….This ain’t good.”

……………………………………………………………………………………………

(ten minutes later…everyone is outside, ash covered. they’re all looking at the burning ramble room in shock.)

Lark: “W-what happened?!?! What happened to my ramble room!?!?” *sobs*

Ashley: “I don’t believe this…”

Noelle: “Hey, at least she’s taking this better than Rufus.”

Rufus: *has fainted*

Algus: “How could such a thing happen?” *to zidane* “Was it you, slave?”

Zidane: *shifty eyes* “No. Uh… Such a simple mind like mine could never make fire.”

Algus: “True.”

Vincent: “Angel, I believe your dragon’s to blame.”

Sephiroth: *stops crying* “Shut up, Vincent. You were an accomplice. I’ll take you down with me!”

Kiros: “See what you did now, Laguna? Ward says you screwed us. You screwed us all.”

Ward: *nods in agreement*

Laguna: *starts sobbing* “I am an idiot!”

Kiros: *blinks in amazement* “Wow… Ward *did* agree with me…”

Katie: “Looks like your inside marshmallow roasting is 2 for 2, Irvine.”

Irvine: *has turned pale* “Yeah. No more marshmallows inside.”

Setzer: “Uh, Edgar? You don’t think that the trash can we left flaming made–“

Edgar: “Of course not. Don’t be silly, dear.” *algus looks at him weird* “Er… I mean beer…guy.”

Shell: “Aw, Rude! Did you burn your stuff so you could give me the insurance money?”

Rude: “If you think so, Shell.”

Shadow: *gasp* “I hear them! They’re finally coming to help me!”

Locke: “It’s just the firetrucks, dude.”

Shadow: “…Oh.” *frowns* “I guess that’s good. Do you smell something burning?” *he turns around and is on fire*

Locke: “Uh, dude, you need to stop, drop and roll.”

Shadow: “Huh?”

Locke: *pounces him*

Shadow: “Ack! I’m being attacked! Sic him, Interceptor!”

Interceptor: *is dragging reno’s unconscious body from the building*

Shadow: “You useless dog!”

Reeve: *crying* “Everything I touch has to fall apart!”

Tseng: “It’s okay, Reeve. You’ve touched me, and I’m okay.”

Reeve: “Oh, Tseng!” *grabs him into a forceful hug*

Tseng: “Umph!” *gets knocked to the floor*

Reeve: “…Tseng…?”

(and so the firetrucks arrive. but it’s too late, and the ramble room is nothing but charred remains. everyone is clumped together, looking at their former home in shock. lark is talking with the chief)

Chief: “Ma’am, we’ve been looking into what caused this fire…”

Lark: *sweat drops*

Chief: “And we found more than 10 possibilities.”

Lark: *confused* “Huh?”

Chief: “There was evidence of this fire starting all over this property. In my 30 years of fighting fires, I’ve never seen anything quite like it.”

Lark: *mutters* “It figures.”

Chief: “I hope you have insurance.”

Lark: “Me too.”

Chief: “I’m sorry for your loss.” *he goes off*

Lark: “…….” *sigh* “I don’t believe this.” *she goes back to the group*

Shell: “Well, sis, what did they say?”

Lark: *sets jaw* “Okay, who was playing with fire today? Twilight, I’m looking in your direction.”

Twilight: “Nuh-uh. Wasn’t me. I was out feeding poor, starving puppies all afternoon.”

Opal, Barret, Cid and Red: *sweat drops*

Lark: “Sephiroth?”

Sephiroth: “What? Do you think they sell fire breathing dragons over the internet and ship them conveniently to your door step or something?”

Auron and Vincent: *sweat drops*

Lark: “Zell?”

Zell: “Hey! Why me next?”

Lark: “I dunno. You look kinda nervous.”

Zell: “Of course I am! I almost didn’t save my comic book collection!”

Lark: “Reno?”

Reno: *is still passed out*

Noelle: “Uh…pay no attention to the drunk man on the ground.”

Lark: “Well someone is responsible for this! And someone else saw it happen! And both those people are in big trouble!”

(almost) everyone: *sweat drops*

(then up stumble the losers, all of whom are covered in ash)

Noelle: “What the hell happened to you freaks?”

Scarlet: “*Nida* burned down our house!”

Nida: “I did not!

Kuja: “I’m gross! And I almost lost my wardrobe!”

Hojo: “I nearly lost a limb saving it, my precious.”

Vincent: “Then you could have given yourself a claw.”

Hojo: “Are you kidding? Those things are hideous!”

Vincent: *hangs head*

Ashley: “Well, as you losers can see, someone burned down our place as well.”

Heidegger: “Gya haa haa! Homeless! I’ll have to live in the woods with Stinky!”

Stinky: *snort*

Scarlet: “Well, if it wasn’t for *Nida*–“

Nida: “I didn’t set the fire! It was Squall! He was trying to kill me!”

Squall: *snaps out of a daze* “Huh?”

Seifer: “…Uh, yeah! Squall set our fires too! It was revenge for me being better in bed!”

Ashley: *snort* “Yeah. Right. And he has bigger boobs than Tifa too.”

Nida: “Yeah! Squall did it. I bet no one’s seen him all day!”

Everyone: “……”

Rinoa: “You’re right. Even I haven’t.”

Squall: “It wasn’t me.”

Seifer: “See! He’s guilty! He’s trying to cover it up!”

Elena: “Thanks a lot, Squall!”

Squall: “But–“

Zell: “That’s not cool, dude! Where we gonna live now?”

Squall: “But, Zell, I didn’t–“

Edgar: “Nearly all our possessions were lost thanks to you!”

Squall: “But it wasn’t–“

Vivi: *sniff* “Do I have to be alone again?”

Squall: “I didn’t do it!”

Wakka: “No one can vouch for ya, ya?”

Squall: “That doesn’t mean I did it!”

Seifer: “Oh well, Squall did it. Case closed. Let’s bake cookies!”

Squall: “The ramble room burned down, you ass.”

Seifer: “Yeah! ‘Cause of you!”

Squall: *head in his hands* “I don’t believe this!”

Lark: “Look! However this happened… The ramble room is gone. And until we have a new one built… We’ll have to split up.”

Everyone: *gasp*

Cloud: “Split…up?”

Zidane: “But where are we supposed to go?”

Lark: “Back to our worlds.”

Algus: “What? No! Mine has calculator’s in it and Delita’s a low life peasant prick!”

Zidane: “Dude, I’ll be free from Algus!!” *does a back flip of joy*

Steiner: “Master Algus, you can take shelter in our world until the new ramble complex is built. I know Queen Garnet will welcome you with open arms.”

Algus: “Excellent, Steiner. Slave, you are to make sure my room is prepared the way I like it, with my slippers by the bed and a mint on my pillow.”

Zidane: *turning red as he clenches his fists in anger* “Steiner… I really, really hate you.”

Kuja: “…Can I come too?”

Zidane: “No!”

Kuja: “Hey! It’s not like I didn’t repent…”

Hojo: “You can come live with me, precious. I only have one narrow bed and there isn’t a mirror for miles, but I think you’ll find it quite sterile.”

Kuja: *terrified* “Zidane, brother, please! I’m your only sister!” *clings to him*

Zidane: *pushes him off* “You’re my *brother*, you weirdo! And no!”

Edgar: “I suppose it’s back to Figaro castle.”

Setzer: “It’ll be good to see the old airship.”

Locke: “Edgar, you’ve gotta hide me from Celes.”

Edgar: “Why?”

Locke: “She’s a nutcase! She keeps cutting locks of my hair when I’m asleep!”

Shadow: “I think you’re paranoid.”

Locke: “Look who’s talking!”

Barret: “Yo! To Cosmo Canyon with us! We can roast up a chocobo and stay at the rat fink’s grandfather’s house!”

Red: “I am not a rat fink. And you are not disturbing Cosmo Canyon with your horrid rap music.”

Cid: “#$%#$^@#%^$%^$#&#!”

Barret: “Yo! You tell ‘im, Cid! Shut up, rat fink!”

Selphie: “I guess we’ll go back to Garden.”

Zell: “Booya! Hot dogs aplenty!”

Squall: “They almost never have hot dogs.”

Zell: *frowns* “Oh yeah…”

Nida: “Yeah! I’ll drive the Garden again like a true hero!”

Scarlet: “Don’t burn that down.”

Nida: “Shut up, whore!”

Tidus: “I guess it’s back to Besaid.”

Lulu: “Great. People don’t stare at my boobs there.”

Wakka: “Sure they do, Lu. Just when you’re not looking ya?”

Kimahri: Kimahri looking forward to seeing home again.”

Sephiroth: “I guess it’s back to my cave for awhile. Vincent?”

Vincent: *sigh* “I think I’ll join the others at Cosmo Canyon.”

Sephiroth: “What?! No!”

Auron: *to vincent* “Mind if I join you?”

Sephiroth: “Yes!”

Vincent: “He wasn’t asking you, angel.”

Sephiroth: “No way you’re coming to our world, buddy. Go back to your loser island with your loser friends.”

Auron: *frowns* “Very well.”

Irvine: “Hey. Where are the girls gonna go?”

Selphie, Tifa, Yuffie, Elena, Rinoa, Quistis and Lulu: “Huh?”

Irvine: “I meant the girls that matter.”

FF girls: *frown* “Oh. Thanks.”

(everyone looks at the ramble chicks)

Lark: “I guess we’ll go back to the real world.”

FF characters: *gasp*

Rufus: “You can’t go back there! It’s way too scary!”

Zell: “Yeah! How you gonna protect yourself without magic?”

Katie: “We’ve done it for years.”

Ashley: “We’ll be fine.”

Shell: “I’ll miss your credit card, Rude.”

Noelle: “You’ll let us know as soon as you have everything built, right, Rufus?”

Rufus: “Of course. But it’s gonna take awhile. I have to get the site cleaned off and deal with the insurance and all.”

Everyone: “…….”

Lark: “I guess this is good-bye for awhile.”

Shell: “I feel like singing that song from Muppets Take Manhattan…” *sings softly* “Saying good-bye, going away…”

Lark: “C’mon. There’s no point in staying here.”

(everyone pauses from a long moment. then lark is the first to walk away. the ramble chicks follow.)

Noelle: “So this is it? After 2 years we just walk away?”

Lark: “Yeah. Maybe it’s time for a break. But we’ll be back. We’ll be back before we know it.”

……………………………………………………………………………………….

(about 5 months later…an excerpt from lark’s most recent diary entry.)

And so we’re back.

The new ramble room looks great. It’s bigger and better than the old one. Everyone’s returned and they all seem in good spirits.

However, some things have changed while we were apart…

(the brand new main ramble room. a bunch of people are gathered in there….but no lark…)

Wakka: “It’s good to be home, ya?”

Shadow: “I had such a relaxing break.”

Locke: “I didn’t see you once, man. Where did you go?”

Shadow: “That’s top secret.”

Locke: “You went and stayed with your mother, didn’t you.”

Shadow: *hangs head* “Yes.”

Steiner: “I hope you were pleased with your stay at the castle, Master Algus.”

Algus: “I was most satisfied, Steiner. Your Queen is a lovely hostess.”

Zidane: *is kissing the ground* “Thank god we’re back!”

Algus: “Slave! Make sure my room is ready for me.”

Zidane: *mumble grumble* “Dickhead.”

Algus: “Pardon?”

Zidane: *frowns* “Nothing…”

Tseng: “The new ramble room looks great, Reeve.”

Reeve: “I tried to capture the essence of the old ramble room while still managing to give it a fresh look.”

Rufus: “Reeve didn’t build this thing! I did!”

Reeve: “No… Your money did.”

Rufus: “That’s besides the point.”

Sephiroth: *sad sigh*

Vincent: “What’s wrong, angel?”

Sephiroth: “I called the pound so many times, Vincent, and they never found Flamey.”

Vincent: “I don’t think anyone wants to try and capture a fire breathing dragon, angel.”

Sephiroth: *blink blink* “…Why?”

Vincent: *like he’s speaking to a child* “Well, that’s not an animal people would like to have a pet.”

Sephiroth: “Well they don’t know what they’re missing.”

Shell: “So, Rude. Where’s my welcome home present?”

Rude: “Did you miss me, Shell?”

Shell: “Answer my question first, Rude.”

Rude: “Uh…it’s…still at the store, Shell.”

Shell: “…You didn’t buy me one, did you, Rude.”

Rude: *hangs head*

Shell: “That’s what I thought, Rude. That’s what I thought.”

Katie: “So, Irvine, where did you go all this time?”

Irvine: “Went home to the farm.”

Katie: “Oh, that’s nice! What’s up with your family?”

Irvine: “Nothin’ much. Pa’s real upset though, cause the barn burned down.”

Katie: “Oh no! What happened?”

Irvine: “I told my brothers that the inside marshmallow roast thing doesn’t work, but…they didn’t believe me.”

Katie: “…Oh.”

Irvine: “They do now.”

Katie: “I see…”

Reno: *jumps on a chair* “Whoo hoo! Let’s get this party started!”

Zell: “Wait! Where’s Lark?”

Tseng: “Yeah, where is she?”

Ramble girls: *exchange looks*

Noelle: “Uh… She should be here any second.”

(as if on cue which so often happens, the door opens and lark enters! …holding the hand of a cute redheaded guy)

Lark: “Hey everyone!”

Everyone: *looks at the guy*

Sephiroth: “I knew it! She forces us all off into our own worlds and she goes and hangs out in FF11!”

Lark: “Uh, actually, Sephiroth–“

Sephiroth: “She wouldn’t go back to the real world anymore than Cid would stop cursing!”

Cid: “%#@$%@#%@#^@#^@#^#$^&#$&^@$%&@#$^#@^@#$&^@#^@$#&#*#*!!”

Lark: “Uh, actually, Sephiroth, I *did* go back to the real world. This is Brady, my boyfriend.”

Brady: “Hey, what’s up?”

FF guys: *jaw drops*

Sephiroth: “Lark! What happened to you? You’re gone a few months and you completely lower your standards.”

Brady: *sharply* “*What*?”

Lark: “And I see you haven’t completely stopped being a huge jerk, Sephy.”

Sephiroth: *frowns* “Touche.”

Lark: “I expect that everyone will show Brady the same respect they show me.”

Algus: “Why of course, Miss Lark.” *extends hand* “I am Algus, dear sir. And on behalf of the ramble room MAFIA, I welcome you.”

Brady: *blink blink* “The *what*?”

Algus: “The Majestically Affluent Fabulous Investment Association, what?”

Brady: “….Okay…”

Algus: *still has his hand outstretched* “*Ahem*.”

Brady: *looks him up and down* “So, you’re Algus.”

Algus: “Yes.”

Brady: “From Final Fantasy Tactics.”

Algus: “That is correct.”

Brady: *eyes narrow* “That’s great.”

Algus: *smugly* “I know.”

Sephiroth: “Okay, Lark, we’re all thrilled to meet your boyfriend. Can he go home now?”

Lark: “No, Sephiroth. In case I hadn’t already made it painfully obvious, he’s living here now too.”

Sephiroth: *rolls eyes* “Great. Another male. We need that like a hole in the head.”

Rufus: “I for one, think it’s a good idea to have another *straight* guy around for a change.” *mutters* “God knows you can’t walk around here sometimes without feeling like you’re in West Hollywood.”

Sephiroth: “And I, for one, could care less what Rufus thinks.”

Algus: “Sir Brady, allow me to show you around the new ramble room complex.”

Brady: “Uh…maybe some other time.”

Rufus: “Nonsense! Now’s perfect! I’ll help!”

Lark: “Great idea, Algus. That’s so nice of you.”

Algus: “I’m always nice.”

Zidane: *snort*

Algus: “Silence, slave. You are to come along, and hold my cape behind me as I walk so it does not drag on the floor.”

Zidane: *frowns* “Dammit.”

Rufus: “Ooh! I like that idea! Reno, you do that for me.”

Reno: “But you don’t even have a cape.”

Rufus: “…Well…just pretend then.”

Reno: “That’s retarded.”

Rufus: “You’re retarded–*and* fired for half an hour. Rude? Do you want to do it?”

Rude: *shakes head no*

Rufus: “Do you want to get paid this week?”

Rude: “I love pretend.”

Rufus: “That’s what I thought, Rude, That’s what I thought.”

Shell: “Hey! No one uses that line but me!”

Algus: “Well then it’s all settled. Shall we be off?”

Brady: *shoots lark a ‘help me’ look*

Lark: *gives him a little push* “Go on. Don’t look so upset.”

Sephiroth: “I’ll go along too…and make sure no one has any…uh…unfortunate accidents…”

Lark: “Sephiroth, you’re staying right here and helping me move in my stuff.”

Sephiroth: *hangs head* “Why do I still let her do this to me?”

Reno: *imitates the sound of a whip cracking*

Sephiroth: “Shut up, Reno.”

………………………………………………………………………………………….

(and so, several hours later, back in the ramble room… Brady’s cornered by reno and irvine, who are explaining something quite enthusiastically….)

Reno: “…And so *that’s* the story of Lark and the pirate.”

Irvine: “But, uh, don’t ever mention it to her ’cause she got amnesia and forgot about the whole thing. So if you ask her about it, she’ll just deny it.”

Brady: *blink blink* “…Right.”

Reno: “But other than that things are pretty quiet around here. I mean, there’s the pool, the porch swing, and our fantastic yearly St. Patrick’s day parade–“

Irvine: “You should have seen all the squirrels at our last one!”

Reno: “The frequent parties thrown at Rufus’ unwilling expense, Sex day–“

Brady: “Whoa, hold up. …Sex day?”

Reno: *grins* “Yup. I totally made it up, but I convinced everyone that it’s real.”

Irvine: “It comes four times a year.”

Reno: “Yeah, but this year no one’s really kept track, so I’m gonna try and push it till like 8 times before December.”

Irvine: “Dude, you totally rock!”

Reno: “Damn right!” *high five* “What do you say it’s about time we hit the booze?”

Brady: “It’s only three o’clock in the afternoon.”

Reno: “Only?”

Irvine: “That’s half a day of good drinking wasted already!”

Brady: “You guys ever been to an AA meeting?”

Irvine: “Why would I bother? I don’t have a car.”

Brady: *mutters* “Oh boy.”

(then lark reenters with sephiroth, vincent, and auron.)

Lark: “Hi, sweetie! Did you have fun?”

Brady: “…What do you wanna hear?”

Lark: “Um, could you guys leave us alone for a second?”

(irvine, reno, auron and vincent immediately turn to leave. sephiroth doesn’t move.)

Lark: “Sephiroth, that means you too.”

Sephiroth: “Ugh! You’re grouping me with them now! Great! Lovely! This is wonderful!” *he leaves*

Brady: “…What a drama queen.”

Lark: “Tell me about it.” *sits next to him* “So…?”

Brady: “Baby, some–wait, no, *all* of these people make our friends look normal.”

Lark: “Yeah, so?”

Brady: “And what the hell was with that pirate story?”

Lark: “That’s not true!”

Brady: “And do those guys always follow you around like that?”

Lark: “No. …Well, Sephiroth follows me around a lot. …And Vincent follows him around… ….And Auron follows him around…” *pause* “Okay, yeah.”

Brady: *looks scared*

Lark: “You’ll get used to it.”

Brady: “If you say so.”

Lark: “Hey, in a week or two you’ll never wanna leave.”

Brady: “I hope you’re right.”

Lark: “I’m always right.”

Brady: *gives her a look*

Lark: “…Okay no. But just trust me on this one.”

Brady: “I don’t have a choice anyway, do I?”

Lark: “No. Of course not.”
