Cast of Characters: Hank Pym, Saeko

Hank Pym has posed:
Hank Pym prepared for the evening well in advance. All manner of Chinese take out appetizers, freshly made sushi, and at the last moment bacon cheeseburgers. He had a number of DVDs ready, a holographic screen warmed up and the big chair was piled high with blankets and pillows. She might not have her fur on and get cold. He watches the ants finish cleaning and setting out flowers before retreating to their nest and nods his approval. //And stay there unless I call you. Too early to introduce you lot.// He checks himself in the mirror a moment. Well he's in sweats and hardly a movie star. Hopefully she likes him for his mind. He waits, determined not to startle.

Saeko has posed:
An easy day, a 'night in' certainly this wasn't normal for Saeko, but that doesn't mean that it was going to be bad. The invitation to 'dress down' was indeed a confusing one, but she took it to mean comfortable.

Being able to conjure and change clothing easily did tend to help with not being too worried.

Of course the greatest benefit of all of this is being in-house meant she didn't need to hide her nature! A shimmer of light as she appeared on the other side of the front door, her hair down and fox-features revealed.

Wrapped in what appeared to be her usual if not slightly revealing short yukata, Saeko cleared her throat. "I am here," she calls, if he wasn't immediately visible. Because Tenko don't always knock!

Hank Pym has posed:
Hank Pym is mildly startled. Pleasantly startled. His day just got better for sure.

"Good evening. Oh, I said dress down and you came in tails... okay tails is a slang term for formal attire. See you are showing your tails." He goes over to hug the kitsune warmly. He gives her a quick peck on the cheek, doesn't let go quite yet.

"I figured, let us stay in, I have a record of dates being ruined by supervillains lately. Anyway I have dinner and movies for us and... " He looks at Saeko and says, "Wow," silently.

Obviously Yakuta were very comfy as well as slightly revealing.

Saeko has posed:
"Well, it would not be the first time we've been suddenly attacked or random encounters outside," she muses. "Let's just try not to blow up this house, and it will be an improvement."

His pun about tails earns an eyebrow raise, apparently sland she didn't know, but she'll take his word for it. Smiling at the peck on her cheek she gestures to herself. "I know it is abnormal for most, but appearing as I truely am is 'comfortable'. But I can change if you find this...inappropriate."

Hank Pym has posed:
Hank Pym looks a little surprised. "Sweetie, I find you very appropriate, whatever your form. Take whatever shape you feel comfortable in." He hugs her again and gives her tail a pet. She seemed to like that last time. "Come. Bacon cheeseburgers await." He takes her by the hand.

Saeko has posed:
A chuckle, Saeko moves to return the embrace, the stroke of her tail making her shiver lightly and then step to follow with hand claimed.

"It is a good thing my shape is not dependant on what I eat like a human," she teases, "otherwise I fear you would spoil me too often with the wonder of burgers."

Hank Pym has posed:
Hank Pym takes Saeko to the kitchen area. "Oh I am going to spoil you... as soon as I learn what you like. If I can let go of you. Oh there's that particular tail that seems to like me." He escorts her to a seat and reluctantly unhands her to begin uncovering food and pouring some water for her. "Uh, if you don't want water, tell me what you'd like and I will provide it. I mean tell me anything you want."

Saeko has posed:
A smile, Saeko is happy to lounge, the tails in question seeming to drift and intermingle until there were less than the full compliment revealed and letting her relax as she lowers herself.

The water offered is taken, but Saeko lazily pats the space beside her with a shake of her head. "Join me when you are ready, and I shall be quite content."

Hank Pym has posed:
Hank Pym sits down indeed. "Now question... if I hug you and grab a tail or two, is that okay or should I not hug them? They seems a little... sensitive. I don't want to hurt you. He puts a cheeseburger before her. "Also while I'm asking... can you get cold or hot or tipsy when you're in a physical form? Not that I want to get you plastered. But I want to know what to offer."

Saeko has posed:
Saeko nods, a smile and a shake of her head. "You can touch them," she explains, one soft-furred tail lazily wavering. "They are...ticklish at times, sensitive but otherwise fine. Although I would prefer they are not treated roughly. Having them stepped on hurts!"

Or slamming them in a door. Modern times had its own dangers after all!

As for hot, cold, tipsy? The Tenko nods, gesturing to herself. "All of those things, to some degree or another."

Hank Pym has posed:
Hank Pym nods and gives the wavering tail a pet. "I will not step on you. I expect the same courtesy though. Uh... so I am starting at that high school after the break is over. I'm doing a lecture on how to appear human. I compiled a list of stupid things humans do that non-humans may not be aware of. Like if you tell a human food or drink is hot they do like this..." Hank takes a bite of his burger and fakes fanning his mouth in pain. "If you have any suggestions I'd like to hear them sometime. You have experience after all."

Saeko has posed:
"Experience? Certainly. Most Kitsune are...not perfect in our disguise when we are young. The way we move, or sniffing the air can be quite the give away." Saeko pauses, taking a bite of her own burger and considering. "Of course, in some ways, after all these years observing humanity it becomes a little more instinctual. But in truth, before this time on Earth I rarely needed to 'blend in' very often."

Hank Pym has posed:
Hank Pym strokes the wavering tail again. "You can be all foxy and relax around me. Believe me... human women are pretty unusual. Even ordinary ones. Some of them sit in a sink to apply makeup. My daughter was trying to bake and mastered a new form of cold fusion. The muffins were delicious though. And I mean... I gave my ex-wife wasp wings and other augmentations so... I'm kind of hard to startle and... you are beautiful. Tails, no tails. Whatever." He reaches over and beeps Saeko's nose.

Saeko has posed:
The 'beep' of her nose has Saeko going a little cross-eyed for a moment, a small laugh to his words and a shrug. "Normal can be quitr boring anyway," she muses aloud and takes another bite of her burger, those ears atop her head twitching lightly. "But I am glad you are not unnerved."

Hank Pym has posed:
Sometime after a large dinner and adjourning to the bog chair to watch movies. Hank says, "So you made mention a couple times you were uncertain how I would find your natural appearance and... I thought of something that might put you at ease... if it's appropriate of course." He reaches behind one of the pillows on the chair and pulls out a small case, suitable for toiletries or makeup. He unzips it slowly... and removes a selection of brushes, hard bristles, soft bristles, wire bristles.

"Would you... do you like your tails brushed?"
