Who: Miguel & Peter Parker
Where: Food court
What: Trying to work out a few problems during lunch
Miguel's usual table had notes scattered all over it, along with a couple of pens, half a mug of now-cold coffee and a plate that had held a sandwich a while ago. Lyla hovered above the table, looking like she was perched on a porch swing that was apparently held up by sky-hooks while she took notes, and Miguel paced about on the ceiling above her as he worked on multiple different problems.
Tommy was a girl, who suddenly couldn't remember how to do his most basic magic. What the shock? Switching genders wasn't really the issue, given that they'd all done it once or twice in the past, but the amnesia? The weirdly-specific amnesia? Shocking weird.
His other self had gone profoundly deaf. Just as suddenly as Tommy's amnesia. The Lylas had conferred, and there was no reason for it that they could identify, no illnesses or sudden ear trauma or anything. Could it be chalked up to Station Weirdness as well? Was there something else going on?
An easy one next. New Dan had given him permission to take samples for genetic testing, and he was enjoying the compare-and-contrast sessions to see how the two versions of the same person matched up or differed. He had more tests lined up and had to sort out the order in which to do them based on the results and data he'd already obtained.
Miguel himself wasn't sleeping
at all very well and his temper wasn't great, a recentish development which Lyla wanted to talk about, but Miguel simply brushed aside any time she mentioned it. He was clearly fine, Lyla was worried about nothing, and if it did become a problem, he'd ask Cuddy for her opinion.
And hardest of all, he wanted to get Sarah a present, just because. Would more science-themed jewelry be okay? Or something silly like the cuddly spider he got her ages ago. Or maybe he could get Harri to help (and maybe Henry, if he wanted to?). Maybe they could make geodes or a cake or a cake decorated with geodes. That would be pretty cool, right? He'd check with the kids.
He stuck a webline to the ceiling and dropped down to be level with Lyla after that. He had half a cup of cold coffee to finish, after all.
