Xavier Mansion - Recreation Room

What was once the Parlor has been turned into a Recreation Room for the students. A nice plush carpet meets the light blue walls giving it a homey feel. A pool table at one end, a foos ball table at the other, and entertainment center with video game systems, movies, and of course, cable TV. Big comfy chairs and couches surround a coffee table for comfortable loafing. Long glass windows with a pair of French doors line one side of the room bringing in plenty of light during the day. The main rule in here is to clean up after yourself.

Classes are back in session and luckily Robyn's already got all his homework done so he's relaxing in the rec room. He's sprawled out on one of the chairs wearing a pair of black jeans and a black tshirt with a strange looking cat on it, maybe in honour of halloween coming up? He has a remote in his hand and is slowing chaning the channels. "I should jus put in a DVD." He mutters to himself.

Also having completed all of her homework, Robin walks into the recreation room. On the off chance that nobody was there, she brings along a math textbook to study, which she presses against her chest. She wears a dark purple sweater and a black skirt, along with her usual accessories. "Oh, hi!" she says to him, almost immediately upon entering, "Did you have good day? I'm so glad to have started school again."

… aaand enters Robin again. Only this is a more masculine Robin, since he's wearing comfortable jeans and a t-shirt. On second glance, he's wearing the tell-tale nametag proclaiming his name to be Skyler. Bob follows closely behind him, his own version of Robin's Blank, only this one is glowing emerald green instead of the blue that Blank emits. "Oh, hey, Robin, Robyn," he says pleasantly enough.

Robyn can't help but blink a bit at Robin's cheerfulness before shruging with a smile. "Hey Robin and….Robin?" He says sounding confused as there are now two of the. "Oh Skyler! I almost missed the name tag. I don't think I'll get used to that." He says with a head shake. "I guess I had a good day, I mean school is school."

"Yeah, I had a good day, too!" says Robin excitedly. She reaches out a finger and Blank silently appears in front of her, looking a little bit confused at the change of location; the puppet had just lagged behind a bit. "I haven't been to classes for way too long, and like you said, school is school." Of course, she says the last more like it's a good thing.

Skyler grins at Robyn and chuckles, "Well, I think it'd be easier with me and Robin since we're …. well…. different." He finds a chair to sit down. "This year is going to be interesting. For the first time I really have to think about what I want to do when I finally graduate."

"I can't wait until I have art class, which I think I have my first art class tomorrow." Robyn shifts so he's sitting properly in the chair instead of his legs resting over the arm. "Yeah, one of you looks like a girl and other a guy, it's like you're twins or something." Robyn says with a chuckle. "Oh you graduated Skyler? This is my junior year."

Robin hums for a couple of moments and says, "Well, I'm just starting high school, actually, myself. I'm a little bit behind…" She grins and says, "Oh, yeah, me and Skyler do match now. Except he's not quite as pretty as I am, but oh well." She and Blank shrug and just sit down on the floor.

Skyler sticks his tongue out at Robin. "I'm /just as pretty/ as you," he correct. "I just choose to dress like this to help people tell us apart." He chuckles and nods to Robyn, "I'm a senior this year."

Robyn laughs at the two Robin's. "You two even sound like siblings or something. Wow, you look different when you dress like that Skyler, as Robin I mean. I'm just used to seeing Robin like…Robin." He says hoping it makes sense with what he's saying. "I'm not behind or ahead, I'm just average."

"Well. Almost as pretty. Makeup gives me an edge," says Robin to Skyler, trying to reach a compromise. She nods at Robyn and says, "Yeah, it's really kinda weird, seeing him like that, 'cause I don't usually look like that anymore. Not bad or anything, just /weird/."

Skyler puts his hands on his hips and mock-chides, "And who taught you everything you know about makeup?" He nods at Robin, "If it creeps you out too much I can always find somebody else. Some people get used to it, and some people just don't like it all that much."

"I dunno, I think it's kind of cool but then I always wanted a brother or sister." Robyn says as sometimes it got lonely being an only child. "I dunno, I think I prefer Skyler's look as Robin but then…" Robyn trails off with a bit of a blush. "I would find i weird if there was suddenly another me."

"Oh, no no, it doesn't bother me at all. Sometimes I look at you and I think of what would look good on you to figure out what I want to wear. It's like having a mirror that's a little bit masculine," says Robin. "And it's not like I use my boy mode or anything." She and Blank both shrug, and she says to Robyn, "Actually, I had a lot of siblings, but I didn't get along with any of them except my younger sister. And come on, I'm the /best/ Robin with an 'i'!" she adds in response to Robyn saying he likes Skyler-Robin's look better.

Skyler just shakes his head in wonder, Bob echoing the motion. "What is it with girls using me as their mannequin?" He chuckles, "My sister does that all the time to me. She'd have me turn into her so we could go to the mall, and then she'd buy a bunch of stuff and put it on me and spin me around and all that kind of stuff."

Robyn shakes his head with a laugh. "Okay that'd be one thing that would suck about having a sister or something. I am easy with clothes, black." Robyn says with a nod. He looks over at Robin and chuckles. "You're the original Robin with an 'i'." He says with a nod. "And I wasn't saying there's anything wrong with your look, you're very pretty."

Robin looks very pleased at being called very pretty, grinning cheerily. Blank, too, looks pleased. She shrugs at Skyler, though, and says, "I dunno. I can see you from more angles than I can see me, so it's just easier than using an actual mirror. It's just real convenient!" She tilts her head at Robyn and says, "Having a sister is really good. Better than brothers."

Skyler sighs resignedly as Bob looks heavenward for assistance. "I suppose. I've only got the two sisters. One still talks to me. The other thinks I'm dead."

"Thinks your dead?" Robyn says sounding confused by it. He doesn't have time to ask about it because his cell phone goes off. "Crap it's my parents, I gotta get, I'll catch up with you more, later." Robyn says with a smile as he takes off.

Robin shrugs and looks down at her lap, "My family probably thinks I'm dead or on the streets still or something like that, sister included." She watches as Robyn exits, waving hastily at him as he runs out.
