Office hours [all day]
Josh was catching up on radio.

Josh was hearing about Deadpool and Aly.

Josh...was plotting.

Plot, Josh, plot.

The door was open.

Before heading down to open Pixie Dust, Isabel stopped by, a folder of papers in her hand.

"Knock, knock."

Josh glanced up from his evil plans, oh yes, mwhahaha papers and smiled. "Hello, Isabel."

"Hi Professor Lyman. Sorry to interrupt, but I was wondering if you'd be able to help me with some paperwork," she said, holding out the folder. "It's college stuff."

"Is it that time of the year already?" Josh asked. "Which Ivies are you applying to?"

"It's getting to be," Isabel told him. "The deadline for applying is January first. But I'm aiming to get everything done by Thanksgiving," Isabel said. "That way I won't have to worry over Christmas. I'm looking at Cornell and their School of Hotel Administration. Which sounds silly but I think it'll work for me."

Josh's jaw dropped. "...hotel administration?" he repeated. "No. Political science, then law school. Take over the world, name hotels 'Evans', have someone else run them."

Because clearly everyone wanted Josh's life. Or Donald Trump's.

She shook her head. "I've had enough of politics. I know, I know! That's blasphemy. But that's how I feel at the moment. I don't want to take over the world. I just want to do something that makes me happy."

"You know what I'm good at. This seems like it's a way to build on that. And it doesn't involve battle plans." Isabel thought that was the best part.

Aly sensed plotting. It was like radar.

Which was possibly why she appeared in his doorway carrying coffee.

"Hello, dear," Josh said, tipping his head towards the podcast. "Any particular reason you were having pillow fights and tying men who aren't me up?"

She grinned. "He deserved it?"

He waved her into a chair. "Care to elaborate just a little? Or are we embarking on a new cycle of ball pits and breast pumps?"

"Probably the second," she said, falling carelessly in the chair though she was careful to keep the coffee from spilling. "But really it was because of Homecoming."

"Which part?" Josh asked. "I was a little busy watching out for chinchillas."

Lana stops by

At some time when things seemed quiet in the office, Lana stopped by to see Josh. She brought a cup of coffee for him, of course.

Re: Lana stops by

"Hello, Lana," Josh said with a welcoming smile. "I got donuts. Oooh. Coffee?"

Re: Lana stops by

"Wasn't sure I was allowed to stop by without coffee," Lana said with a smile.

Re: Lana stops by

"It's not a rule, but now I'm thinking it kinda should be," Josh decided.

Re: Lana stops by

"Well, it's not like it's a difficult thing," Lana said with a smile.

Re: Lana stops by

"Exactly," he replied. "I'll put up a sign for next week."

He took a sip from the cup. "You're smiling. That's very good to see."

Sometime after Aly was there, but not because he was avoiding her out of fear or anything because he was so not afraid of a scrawny blond spy.

At all.

Even if she had a crop in her hands.

Anyway! Deadpool peered into Josh's office warily. "She isn't here, is she?"

Josh shook his head. "Not at the moment, nope." He glanced down at his paper. "I don't really need to add you to my list of people to deport, right?"

Deadpool just gave him a confused look. "What? No! She did that to torture me because I defended myself after the Mountie tried to steal my pants and ripped my shirt off." A beat. "Don't tell Arashi that bit. He gets jealous and stabby."

Josh stared for a long beat, then reached for the nearest throwable object--his countdown until Bush was out of office daily calendar--and chucked it at Deadpool's head. "Make sense!"

Deadpool sighed and let it hit him. "She's starting the prank war back up? I'm thinking about retaliating with raw meat hidden in her closet."

"I have a crate full of mice around here," Josh said. "Someone'd stuck them in my desk."

He thought about it. "But I like living, so pranking my girlfriend is probably a terrible idea."
