Everything had been done over the phone before Zero drove a giant teal van full of her stuff through a portal, so today the manager just unlocked the door and let her in. It was a nice apartment. A bit small, but it was just her and Fish; it wasn't like she needed a ton of space. She'd left most of the furniture in New York, since it didn't seem fair to leave Peter without any.

"What do you think, Fishy?" Zero asked her bird, holding up the cage to look in at him. For once, Fish was silent. "Yeh," Zero agreed. "Me, too."

She stood in the middle of the empty living room with her bird for a few minutes before she sighed, set Fish's cage down, and headed downstairs. She could brood, or she could schlep, and it wasn't like her stuff was going to move itself.

She had a sinking feeling that by the end of the day she was really going to be missing her ex-boyfriend's superstrength.

((Open to phone calls and texts. And yes, Zero and Peter have broken up by mutual agreement, and Zero is now back in her home universe's LA. She hasn't told anyone yet.))

*riiiing* Checking in and bitching about life, the universe, and everything. It happened fairly regularly.

Parker froze, eyes widening. "Who's dead?"

"What? What? Wait, why?" Parker asked, dismayed. "Are you sure? Totally broken up?"

"Well... shit." This made any of Parker's problems seem somewhat petty in comparison. "I'm sorry. Wait, his L.A., or my L.A.?"

"The L.A. I can fly to, not needing a portal," Parker qualified it, and sat down, putting up her feet. "Do you want to talk about the long complicated story, or skip it?"

"I'm sorry," Parker said, voice quiet. "It still sucks... how long have you been back in L.A.?"

Parker facepalmed. "Are you still moving in? I can get off the phone and leave you to it if you're in the middle of rearranging boxes everywhere."

"I remember that place." Parker had desperately needed ice cream the four months she spent at Zero and Peter's. "Cafe 50's? I think..."

She was already ordering food from that Thai place to deliver to Zero on *her* laptop. "Food being ordered, what's the new address? And what are you going to do for work? Go back to the stunt stuff?"

Parker typed that in, charged it, and got up, pacing again. "You know Rainbow would probably be happy to help again. Or hey, if you need start-up capital, 7G can do something there." Not exactly a loan, but some kind of financing? Or finding of financing. That would work. "You were making good money when you left, and you couldn't spend it all in Superhero World, right?"

"Yeah. You know, you can visit, if you get fed up," Parker said tentatively. "We're in New York City for the next two months, 'til August. No one stays in New York in August if they have a choice."

Parker snorted. "Truly, a terrifying prospect... considering where his careers is at the moment." She paused in her pacing, and offered, "Fourth of July, mind if I come visit?" No crowding her, but that would be enough time for Zero to at least unpack her boxes.

"That works," Parker said, amused again. "We can always do the same thing in November on Guy Fawkes day, if you need to resolve that."

"That there shall be," Parker promised. "Also, music. We should find a good band, somewhere." Things to take her mind off her troubles, hopefully. "And drag Jarod along, as well as Kyle. You can taser him if he gets out of line."

"That works too," Parker said agreeably. "He's still scared of you. Ben won't be along, he's been accepted for NSA agent training. So, you know if you tangle with international agencies again, we'll have an in."

What, it was likely they'd get kicked out of somewhere else eventually.

"Yeeeah," Parker said, gently, for her. "Look. Call if you get work. Or if you need money. Or you need to talk. You know. All that stuff." She paused. "Especially call if you turn into a guy again, 'cause I'll probably need the support."

"Good." Parker was considering sending her ice cream tomorrow, as a surprise, because hey. She might eat all she had tonight. "Talk to you soon. Especially if someone in my employ stages a coup."
