Hank Pym has posed:
Hank Pym is standing at his command post, throat mic and ear buds in place. "Korr, download the listed files and print them out for me. Then order more pet food and maple syrup and a... three bottles of Merlot. Oh and for lunch get me the usual from Panda Express. Cue Raphael's Flask please. Thank you Korr."

Music begins playing. A printer begins churning out pages.

<<Done Dr. Pym. You have a guest approaching. Shall I open the door?>>

"Crap... I was actually getting stuff done. Who the hell is it?" A holodisplay winks on and he sees the person coming to his door.

"Shit! I need pants! Right now!"

<<Express ordering pants.>>

"No you fucking idiot! Tell Dr. MacIntyre I'll open the door i..."

<<Opening door!>>

"'n a minute... Korr I am going to.. "

Click. Hank grabs a lab coat and throws it on with some aplomb.

Morrigan MacIntyre has posed:
Morrigan probably should have called ahead, but she was in Midtown for a few errands and figured that Hank might not be too upset at a drop in. Or if he was he wouldn't be too bad at her and shrink her or something.

The woman pops her head around the door when it opens and there's a curious look around before she sees Hank, "If this is a bad time I can come back?" she asks him as she slips inside and closes the door behind her. She turns to see one of the ants move across the table. That doesn't look like Bo. Or well...maybe it is similar. She gives a look back to Hank, "I was in the neighborhood. Wanted to see what you might be up to during the schools break." she states with a smile.

Hank Pym has posed:
Hank Pym smiles back as he finishes buttoning.

"My dear Dr. MacIntyre, shrinking you would be like shooting the Easter Bunny. Unless you wanted to try it I mean. Come on in. that is Cozette who is obviously a female. Cozette! No! Down." The ant makes an attempt at posturing towards Morrigan before Hank's sharp tone causes her to back down. She turns away. Baudelaire on the other hand skitters around the table and thwaps Morrigan's legs with his antennae gently. Cozette retreat to and up a wall to sulk. Another wonged ant comes out, regarding Morrigan with wise eyes. He does not approach.

"You know Bo. That's Foss. He's an old fellow, 13 years old. I keep telling him to retire, spend time with the kids, no. He's a grouch."

Morrigan MacIntyre has posed:
Morrigan gives a curious look when he mentions shrinking her, "Umm, no. Not in that daring of a mood." she chuckles at that. Then there's the female ant and Mo raises her hand to cover the giggle that it brings. Oh no. Morrigan smoothes her skirt down and then kneels down to show Bo a warm welcome, "Hey there Bo." she grins to him. "You keeping everyone out of trouble?" she asks him.

Then she gives a look to Cozette and there's a wave to her and then to Foss, "I'm not here to upset anything. Just stopping in to see Hank." she offers to them. Then she rises from her knees and heads over towards the doctor, "Are you doing alright?" she asks him.

Hank Pym has posed:
Hank Pym head tilts. "Yeah I'm good. Just printing some information on various projects I'm being pitched for my workshop. Also collecting a number of scathing observations on human behavior for a lecture. Oh... yeah I was in a state of undress and my virtual intelligence is a sadist. But it's neither here nor there. It's nice to see you. I feel like we've seen more of each other out of school than in it between the party and these little surprises. Oh come in grab a seat... that chair over there is a little too big but if you feel adventurous have at it. Would you like something to drink or a tour of the place... actually the lab is one room. There are quarters over there, and a kitchen and that's about it except for the ant quarters and store room... oh, this is my control console where I monitor various projects." He makes a sweeping motion over the console, disrupting several holo displays, looking somewhat like a big kid. Except his toys are for people with doctorates.

Morrigan MacIntyre has posed:
Morrigan gives a look around and then back to Hank, "Undress?" she asks as she looks him over, her violet gaze flicking down his form, then back up to his eyes. "At least you're wearing a lab coat, Hank." she smiles at that. She wasn't going to say anything untoward to the good doctor. "If you've got water that would be lovely." she offers. She then heads over to lean carefully against one of the tables that are pointed out. "Do you give tours?" she asks him with a smile.

"I'm fine with seeing people outside of work. Friendships go better if there is downtime." she points out. She does eye the holograms, making quiet observations as she does.

Hank Pym has posed:
Hank Pym goes to get a bottle of water and brings it over to Morrigan. "Yes so... I call you Dr. MacIntyre a lot... It doesn't mean I'm not your friend. You've been very understanding of me and exceptionally trusting. But... how do I put this...?" He ponders a moment and Cozette waves her antennae at him.

"No one asked you, Cozette. Stay out of this please."

Morrigan MacIntyre has posed:
"Thank you, Hank." Morrigan tells him as she accepts the bottle of water gladly. Then she gives him a curious look when he starts to say something. Cozette's antennae waving gives her pause though and she looks to the large female ant, "I feel like she'd bite me in the ankle if she could get away with it." she states honestly.

Then she gives a look back to Hank, "But...?" she prompts him.

Hank Pym has posed:
Hank Pym gives Cozette another glance.

//Sorry great Pym. I tried to distract. Shall I bite her?//

//No, Cozette.//

Hank rubs his eyes. "I have problems being friends with... people. So I keep a certain distance, to avoid problems. I can do research with Dr. MacIntyre but might not be able to with Morrigan." He wants to tell her 'Mo' is right out.

There that sorts that out.


Morrigan MacIntyre has posed:
Morrigan watches Hank as he explains things and for a moment there is a little bit of happiness that leaves the redheads eyes. But she gives a soft smile, "I completely understand that." she tells him. There's a moment taken to uncap the water and take a drink before she continues anything. She obviously doesn't really know what to say to that.

"Some of the kids that stay around the school over break and some Alumni are going on a little fieldtrip to the beach Wednesday, you're more than welcome to join us and bring Mike and some friends if you'd like." she offers to him.

Hank Pym has posed:
Hank Pym head tilts. He knows how the fundamental building blocks of matter go together but... women are hard. He certainly see that little bit of happiness go out of those violet eyes. He steps a little closer and tentatively puts his hand on hers if she'll let him. "WHat'd I do? I did something... you want me to call you Morrigan. I hurt your feelings. I'm an idiot. I am an idiot around women and I am obviously still producing evidence to confirm."

"Morrigan. Morrigan it is. I don't want to hurt you or make you even a little bit unhappy. Maybe I can research with Dr. MacIntyre... and Morrigan and I can sit and talk and sip wine some more? Does this sound all right?"

Morrigan MacIntyre has posed:
Morrigan gives a bit of surprised look when Hank moves closer and there's a look to the hand that touches hers, "No, you didn't do anything." she tells him. Her free hand reaches to pat his gently. Comforting. "You didn't hurt my feelings or anything like that." she waves those thoughts away. "And you are certainly not an idiot, Hank." she tells him as she looks to him.

"I'm not going to make you change how you do things. I can be Doctor MacIntyre and Morrigan as well. If it helps with things." she tells him. "Compromises and adjusting is a part of having friends." she states with a softer smile. "You don't need to change for anyone. Just remember that." she adds gently.

Hank Pym has posed:
Hank Pym nods his head. "I've tried to change for many people. I tried to be a scientist and not a dreamer. Then I tried to be an Avenger. Then I tried to work with a partner, be ahusband. I tried to change many times for others and you are right. But this past year, I've tried to change for /myself/. I tried reaching out to people and it didn't go great. Except I met Mike and I met you and I met Nadia too. I just want things to happen too fast. I want a bunch of friends now. Friends don't work like that."

"You are extraordinarily patient and kind. May I give you a hug?"

Morrigan MacIntyre has posed:
Morrigan watches him while he speaks and there is a soft smile to him, "That's not how it works, no. Friendships need to be built. Trust has to be earned and things like that. Unless you find folks you can trust instantly." she admits softly. "I had that a few times." she grins at that. "And honestly with everything that you've been through you should do what is best for you when things come up." she tells him.

Then she straightens from her lean and there's a smile, "I've not given anyone a hug in awhile, so hopefully I don't suck completely at it." she chuckles. "But yes, I'm fine with hugs." she nods to that.

Hank Pym has posed:
Hank Pym steps over to hug Morrigan, swallowing a little air. As he does he says, "I only really. hugged my daughter in the last three years. So... you instantly trusted me? I mean you told me a lot. All my scandals were made pretty public. Should I let go now? Nadia likes long hugs. I can keep going..."

Morrigan MacIntyre has posed:
Morrigan's not really an awkward person, so when Hank steps in she reaches out to slip her arms around his shoulders and lets the hug happen. There's a few moments where she doesn't speak, she just lets the moment stay as it is. "Long hugs are fine." she murmurs to him with a soft chuckle. "I'll have you know not everyone reads every bit of tabloid or publications. I like to make my own opinions on people." she tells him.

Hank Pym has posed:
Hank Pym lingers as well. "I had a schizophrenic break from undiagnosed bipolar disorder. I believed my team was out to get me and I built a robot to take them all out. Fortunately I was stopped because I came too close. I returned to them seeking redemption. I didn't find it though they meant well. I then thought being a dad would redeem me. I'm a shitty dad. Then I finally said I would redeem myself by not giving in to this disorder again and helping people... not punching some kook in armor. I'm not letting this condition define me."
