Ysalwen steps through the front door, looking lighter and less troubled than she has in weeks. Having your apprentice settled into a Tal-Vashoth mercenary team -- the Valo-Kas, as it happens -- will do that. Particularly given that they are newly formed, though taking in members of several different mercenary bands with a great deal of experience.

Meraad liked them, and James found very little to complain about with any of its members, so.

Ysalwen settles herself at a corner booth, pulling out her tablet-book and pulling up three holographic windows. One contains a complicated nuclear decay simulation, another has some sort of energetics equations on it, and the third is playing Die Hard. She's been told it's a quite interesting play, and so.

Liranan has settled underneath her chair, ready to take a nap while she works. He may come out when the movie's gunfire starts, or he might just roll his eyes and go back to sleep.

The slightly strangled sound Yamato makes is probably the result of his body trying to spit-take without any drink to do so with.

"They're -- they're detective novels. I've never read any," because they're not exactly big with the 21st century Japanese teen crowd, "but I think they're all about, like, family values and solving small-town crimes with gumption and shit like that."

Gabumon nods solemnly at Ysalwen's budgeting remark. "That's very wise."

"No, no, that's probably true, although I -- do I want to know what the Randy Dowager's Quarterly is?"

Given how there is just the slightest strained crack in his usual gruff grumble on 'Randy Dowager's Quarterly,' it's possible that what he's imagining is fairly terrible.

"I think literary, um, erotica is a pretty vanishingly small niche market in my time and place."

It's not.

"But anyway, tell me about this mercenary group that Meraad joined, they sound interesting, hopefully a good match for her."

"Sounds like you got the best possible outcome for her," Yamato says, with a momentary smile. "Are you going to be taking another apprentice?"

"Makes sense. I, er, do wonder if there aren't maybe a lot of young mages who need that kind of help. To one extent or the other, at least."

Yamato gives a quick nod. "That's fair. That kind of skill set must be a pretty heavy responsibility."

-- That gives him a momentary, irritating thought about Taichi and his skittishness over fighting and forming Omegamon. He's just going to file that one away somewhere.

"Right," Yamato says, with a quick nod. "I mean, not that I think it'd be whining, just -- I know it's weird to talk about big things like that."

"Just, er, if you ever want to talk about it with anyone. I'm around most of the time."

Beat.

"And I'm told Gabumon's a great listener."

"I am!" Gabumon chirps.

"Good. We're -- always happy to listen."

Gabumon gives a cheerful nod, just to reaffirm this.

"Naturally. Gabumon could use someone to share things with," Yamato says, in what is probably a joke, although it's nigh-impossible to tell from his tone. "His secrets burden him."

"They do!"

Yamato nods, very solemnly. "He seems like he has a lot on his shoulders. He and Gabumon are a lot alike, like that."

Yamato reaches down enough to give Liranan a quick scritch behind the ear, as a reward for being so full of burdens and melancholia.

"I guess Gabumon and I should be thinking about putting some training hours in while we're here, so we'll leave you to -- well, to Bruce Willis fighting Snape."

Which they do, with Yamato giving Liranan's ears a quick ruffle before they head for the back door.
