The Frathouse is, as ever, a place for unusual visitors and random passers by. It is a place where anyone is welcome, just about any time. So it's not too much of a surprise to find a random newcomer in the place. What might be a surprise, however, is that this newcomer is a fox!

The little kitsune has, at least for this evening, decided that one of the lesser used kitchens in the quartet of apartments will make the perfect den: right beneath the sink, where it's just a little damp and just a little warm. But even magical foxes still have normal business to attend to, and this little fox is doing just that.

Stepping out of the bathroom, Ayana drops back down to all fours, shifting from girl to fox almost immediately. She stifles a yawn as she peers around the apartment. At this hour, some people are sleeping. But she's spent the whole day sleeping. Right now, she has an urge to explore, and so exploring she goes, padding towards the main livingroom.

The Frathouse also has, of course, a rather expedient grapevine. Maybe not for everyone, but Usagi tends to stick her nose about everywhere. Especially there, because her favorite cuddle buddy and boyfriend lives there!

So of course she knows about Ayana. She doesn't know everything, because Mamoru keeps secrets locked up tighter than a midevial chastity belt, but she knows enough to tell her folks she's going to help a friend settle into a new home and that those bits of clothing she never wears will find a new owner.

She's humming, severely off key because she's Usagi, when she enters. Shoes are kicked off and bunny slippers are slipped on. There's a bag in one hand and a backpack over the other shoulder.

And hey, if Ayana isn't up for company, there's always a cute high school boy she could sneak into bed with for a good hard nap.

She looks up and shrieks and nearly has to peel herself off the ceiling. She knows Ayana is a fox, but knowing and knowing are two different things!

On solid ground and shakey knees, she giggles at her own skittish behavior. "Sorry! You startled me! You are Ayana, right? We met before! Though I think I was a jerk the first time. But the second time I wasn't really! I don't think! But I brought some stuff for you! And some movies if you wanted to watch something!"
Ayana Tasogare 2017-03-21 04:29:08 73802
Shrieking girls elicit shrieking foxes, and Ayana briefly joins Usagi on the ceiling. The little kitsune's hair is all standing on end, her ears back in surprise, and all four--yes four--of her tails are splayed out at odd angles.

Wide, sapphire eyes stare at Usagi worriedly, for a moment, then she shivers out her worry and noses towards her tentatively, sniffing the air near her for the girl's scent.
Usagi Tsukino 2017-03-21 04:40:01 73803
Usagi's scent is, in varying degrees of strength and age, just about everywhere. More concentrated on one end of the couch than the other, stronger near Mamoru's room, and more than one bathroom has soap or shampoo that's Usagi's.

(This, of course, doesn't include the various decorations that are her touch.)

She starts humming again and plops on that corner of the couch, piling the low coffee table with the bag and backpack before she begins to pull out clothes. There's not much, but there's a few outfits worth.

"Okay, so I don't wear these. If you want them, you can have them! The jeans are really comfy, but I just don't wear jeans enough to justify having more than one pair. Some shirts...there's no underthings, because I wear mine and giving used underwear to people I barely know just strikes me as a bit icky, personally. And oh! I had to bring you this one. I hope it's not offensive." She holds up a blue t-shirt with the words 'What Does the Fox Say?' written on it with an annoyed looking cartoon fox under it.

"Speaking of hopefully not offensive!" She holds up a movie. It's one she hasn't watched in years! "I love this movie. The main character's a fox. And I may have had a crush on him when I was like six but don't tell Mamo-chan because he might get jealous." Not that he would. Right?
Ayana Tasogare 2017-03-21 04:47:59 73804
The fox finishes sniffing Usagi carefully, then drops down into her lap. As soon as the bag is opened, Ayana sticks her nose in, digging through it curiously. While Usagi pulls items out, the Fox is busy getting in the way. But at least her very soft tails are brushing against Usagi's chin.

When the fox teeshirt comes out, the kitsune stares at it a moment, then reaches up to pull it out of Usagi's hands with her teeth. Bounding up to the back of the couch, the fox drags the shirt with her, then disappears entirely behind the couch.

There's a little rustling of cloth, and then arms reach past Usagi for the backpack. Ayana says nothing, fox ears twitching curiously, tongue stuck between her teeth in concentration, as she digs through the rest of the bag. A moment later she pulls out a garrishly coloured yellow skirt, then ducks behind the couch again.

Finally, Ayana re-emerges, now wearing the fox teeshirt and skirt. "You're the girl Mamo-kun danced with instead of me," she says as she settles down on the floor in front of Usagi, but facing the girl. Intense sapphire eyes stare at Usagi, studying and judging her. Ayana has her chin on her wrists as she stares, fuzzy black ears twitching atop her head as she considers the girl.

Usagi has a younger brother and a cat who both often times get in the way more than they help. (Though don't tell Luna that!) She's had experience working around In The Way. When the small fox grabs the shirt, she half expects it to land in her lap some seconds later shredded to ribbons.

When Ayana dissapears behind the couch Usagi scratches her chin and wriggles her nose. Soft, but those tails are ticklish!

And then there's an Ayana again, looking at her. Usagi shifts in place until she's facing the fox, mirroring the posture. Sky blue meets sapphire, and where the latter is studying and judging, the former open and curious. "Yep, that was me. I'm glad I got the change to apologize for that later on. I still sometimes feel like a butt for it."
Ayana Tasogare 2017-03-21 05:06:13 73808
Ayana's eyes narrow a little as she thinks back. "Mmm. I got to dance with Iki-chan that day," she says thoughtfully. "The day you apologized, I mean. And I already told you why it upset me so much; that my master was making me angry through our link. That was very long ago," she notes.

A pause as the fox judges a little longer, then asks, "Is that why you brought me clothes? So you could feel better about making me angry with Mamo-kun?"
Usagi Tsukino 2017-03-21 05:09:24 73809
Usagi nods. "I'm glad you got to dance with her! I don't know her well, but she's nice!"

And of course, the question throws her. She tilts her head and lets out a short little laugh. It's more of confusion than of mirth. "But what does clothes have to do with then? I don't get it."
Ayana Tasogare 2017-03-21 05:19:27 73810
For a moment, the kitsune looks even more confused than Usagi feels. Then her eyes widen a little, and she reaches up to slap her forehead with her palm. "I meant ..." she starts to say, then shakes her head. "Nevermind what I meant."

Shifting, Ayana finally stops staring at Usagi so that she can instead start fumbling through the bag of clothes. Frankly, she makes a mess, sending clothes every which way as she hunts through them. "You're not going to wear any of these?" she asks curiously.
Usagi Tsukino 2017-03-21 05:25:31 73811
It's a very confusing moment indeed. Usagi's eyes dart around a bit as though the answer to whatever question she has will be on the wall or the clock or even her shoes by the door. Still. What use is it to pry? "Okay. Sure."

And then they're back to the clothes. She doesn't pay much attention to the mess because she isn't exactly known for her cleanliness. "Nope." She sighs, maybe a little sadly, as she picks up a cute summer dress. "This is so pretty but the color is so wrong for me. Sigh."
Ayana Tasogare 2017-03-21 05:32:42 73812
Ayana gives Usagi a look like she's a little insane, then reaches up to snatch the summer dress from her. "I don't know how a color can be wrong for someone, but I like dresses," she explains calmly. "They're easy to get in and out of when shapeshifting. Much better than pants, which require me to put them on after I shift, rather than while shifting. You can keep those. I won't wear them."

The dress gets tossed aside along with the rest of the mess she's already made. Kunzite or Mamoru are going to have to scold her later about cleaning up her messes.

Glancing at Usagi again, Ayana asks, "What's the movie you have? Is it in Japanese? I don't speak very good English." A pause, then she asks, "Do I have to watch it as a girl or can I be a fox?"
Usagi Tsukino 2017-03-21 05:40:39 73814
Usagi rolls her eyes! "It clashes with my eyes!" This is, of course, the most obvious fashion thing in the world to her!

She nods and takes the jeans. "What about shorts? They make good jammie bottoms if you wanna sleep as a girl." And hey, that drawer in Mamoru's room isn't quite yet overfilling. Maybe she could leave the extras here.

She picks up the movie again and wiggles in place. "The original is in English. If you wanna watch it, we can do either that with subtitles or there's a Japanese track. I'm not good at English, either. And it's Robin Hood. See? The main guy is a fox. And I think the bear is from The Jungle Book. But not really. And they're all animals but it's really good. It's my favorite Robin Hood. I'd thought about The Fox and the Hound, but that one's too sad. It makes me cry every time! Why does Disney DO that?! And you can be a fox if you want. You'll still be watching it either way, right?"
Ayana Tasogare 2017-03-21 05:47:25 73815
Ayana blinks at all the words coming out of Usagi's mouth. She talks so fast. The little foxgirl just stares until Usagi's done. She then takes a breath as if she were the one who'd done all that talking.

No longer proverbially blue in the face, Ayana says, "We have the same eye color." But on that note, she simply transforms downwards. The shirt and skirt fall around her, and the little black fox picks her way out of them carefully. What a mess she's made. Bounding up onto the couch, Ayana leaves her newfound clothes skewed everywhere, then pads over to occupy Usagi's lap, uninvited.
Usagi Tsukino 2017-03-21 05:59:06 73816
It's true. Usagi speaks at a speed that makes the strongest of people dizzy if they aren't used to her. And even those who do sometimes find themselves struggling for breathe when she's done talking.

"Well true, but your eyes are a bit darker, and add to that your fur is black, the color's far more complimentary to you than it is to me."

She makes a little 'awww' noise as Ayana climbs in her lap and for a moment she scritches the fox behind her ears. And then she remembers that hey, there's a movie. "Okay, I gotta put this on."

A bit of wiggling later and Usagi's setting up the entertainment system. The volume is at My Boyfriend Is Asleep And Actually Likes School Because He's A Nerd levels and after a trip to the kitchen for some drinks she's back on the couch. (There is, of course, a bowl of water for Ayana she just sets on the coffee table.)

When she sits she opens her arms as wide as her hopeful grin. "More cuddles?"
Ayana Tasogare 2017-03-21 06:02:53 73817
The scritches earn a soft purring noise from the little fox, as she leans into the affections. it lasts right up until the girl sets her aside so she can go set things up, during which time the fox looks incredibly put out, and hides herself in the backpack. When Usagi returns, Ayana pokes her nose and eyes back out of the backpack to peer up at her. The offer made, and Ayana hops readily back into Usagi's lap. Movie, drinks, and earscritches? This little fox is going to fall asleep again pretty quickly. Screw exploration, nothing beats earscritches.
Usagi Tsukino 2017-03-21 06:06:12 73818
The purring is so cute! And the way she was in the backpack! Stand aside, internet cats, you have cuteness competition!

She gives a happy hum when the fox is back in her lap and the earscritches resume. Usagi does shift and wiggle, but only so she's more laying down, Ayana still able to use her as a bed.

And of course, it's not long before what is more commonly known as The Hamster Dance begins, only played at its regular speed.
