It's More Fun with Whip Cream (Feb. 3, 2018)

Saturdays were relaxation days. And days to hang out with friends, which is why Derrick was coming over. They'd known each other since their school years and had become partners in crime when dealing with the bullies and mean older students. Usually, Lucy's automatic response was violence--punch them until they stop being mean--but Derrick helped her learn that pranks could be just as effective without her getting in trouble every other day. After that, it was more like once a week. He'd been the first person she went to when she figured out how to control a wandless 'Incendio' into a fireball in her hand. Because first, how cool was that? and second, because she knew he'd get a kick out of it.

She was sitting on the couch with a pint of chocolate marshmallow ice cream, eating out of it with a spoon, while she waited for him to get there. They hadn't really specified a time to hang out, just a more general "Hey yeah afternoon works." Lucy wasn't really good with solid plans. She liked to wing it more often than not. Which is why she was watching a B-rated action romantic comedy right now while eating her ice cream. Because honestly, it had been on the television and she had been too lazy to reach for the remote and change the channel.

Saturdays were usually boring fun days for him, either it was going out handling little odds and ends that he personally made fun or it some how involve him taking a bit of a trip in another part of Australia just to see how things were hanging around those areas. That was until he had managed to get a call up from Lucy who had invited him over to hang which beat his idea of going shopping for food, honestly, who needed food? Back in the day the two of them used to run about the school pretty much kicking butt and taking no numbers, mostly because Derrick didn't have the time to date and half because it was mostly bullies. Pranks often provided the same amount of impact as a physical hit without all of the following complications. When she ended up finding out her first wandless 'Incendio' he had been so proud, proud that someone else understood just how amazing a ball of fire could be. Over the years he had found other applications for Incendio and relating spells but it's most purest form had been one of his favorites to use. 

Typically, if it were any other person that wasn't a friend he'd have just knocked on the door and wait until it opened unto him. Luckily, by the time someone became a friend of his they had relinquished every bit of that right, well, in most cases. He didn't pop in at night in case he saw something he couldn't scrub out of his mind. Sometime within the afternoon he had used apparition to transport himself just in of Lucy's door and gave a knock on it from the inside of her home. That feeling of being condensed and compact was always an odd rush for him.  "Knock, knock! Howdy-doody."  

Derrick could see that Lucy was just chilling out with a cold treat in hand - what was that subpar acting in the distance? As he turned the corner he spotted the choice of movie that had been on. "Oh sweet! I love bad movies and Ice Cream!" It was like he took it as some kind of invitation as he sat down on the arm of the couch and pulled out his wand and with a flick of it summoned a pint of ice cream that he had stored in his freezer along with a can of whip cream. "You're eating that stuff all dry, you need the good cloud in a can to make the treat worth it." As he popped open the lid to the ice cream he made a motion with his wand to pull out a spoon from a nearby drawer. 

"What movie is this even? It looks like some Fresh out of Uni kid made it in hopes of getting a really good grade."

Letting the spoon hang in her mouth as she waved and shouted out an enthusiastic "Hey," Lucy pulled her legs up under her on the couch and squirmed over from the middle and then leaned against Derrick when he sat down. She'd gotten used to his randomly appearing inside her door after the second time it happened and at this point, she thought it was better than when people knocked on the door because at least she didn't have to get up now. It was the most annoying thing when she got comfortable and then someone knocked on the door. It made her grumpy. So the less she had to do, the better in her opinion.

She laughed when he summoned his ice cream from her freezer and a can of whipped cream. "Hey, get another one of those so I can have one," she said, taking another bite of the ice cream and letting the spoon hang again as she groaned loudly at the movie. Blood did not spray that way. The special effects in this movie were hilariously bad and inaccurate. She laughed at his comment and replied, "I think it's called Kissing in the Bloody Rain or some pathetically hilarious shit like that." He was right though, it looked like a kid was trying to make a movie and had thrown anything and everything into the movie. Romance, action, comedy, but they threw it all into the movie in such a way that each genre clashed with the others to make an awful movie.

B-rated movies were one of her guilty pleasures. She loved great cinematic geniuses as much as the next person, but looking for a hilariously bad movie to mock was always a fun time. The best ones were usually about some supernatural creature like werewolves (which muggles didn't know existed, but everyone in the wizarding world knew better), Even better were when they got absolutely ever single fact about werewolves wrong or tried to turn it into a superhero werewolf. She laughed as more blood sprayed in the wrong direction and from what was obviously not an artery. She took another bite of ice cream and turned to look at Derrick again, holding her hand out for the whip cream.

He shifted a bit further onto the place he had been sitting as he watched her scoot over to lean against him which drew a light smile across. "Another one? Needy, needy. Alright, don't you worry!" Sometimes just actually walking up to something to grab it was just too much when one had managed to settle in and while he enjoyed being active every now and then, this just happened to be one of the few moments where he just needed to be lazy for the day, for a brief moment. An eyebrow rose up as the blood sprayed, spurted? Maybe squirting was more accurate to describe what he was watching going down. "Did they just stick a bottle of ketchup in this guys hand and tell him to squirt around as if he had lost a chunk of himself?" He started to smile a bit as he used his free hand to make a wandless motion for 'Accio' once more as another can of whip cream appeared on the floor next to him. 

Kissing in the Bloody Rain? That was an insanely long title but it seemed most movies were starting to slap that on to stuff too. Just making extremely long and hard to speak names that you just end up abbreviating them. "KITBR sounds just horrible. Like some kind of Political group bent on making low-rate movies. That apparently like really fake delimbing. . . " As he stated this an explosion suddenly took out only one part of one of the actor's body parts, that being a very loose arm even though the entire body had been caught in the blast. He snorted and shook his head. "That's not even how that works! They should have hired me they'd have seen some really good fire effects." Derrick squinted a bit and shook his head. "Nevermind, they couldn't afford how awesome I'd make it. Too high of a charge, too hot to handle, I'm surprised this ice cream hasn't even melted!"

Derrick had shaken up the can a bit and then tipped it upside down to hover the nozzle over the tub of ice cream in his grasps. A deft finger pushed along the white length as an obnoxious sound of ear condensing and pushing out a puffy white substance that began to curl and coil at the top of the ice cream and started to build up on itself until it made a neat little whip tip of its peak. His eyes narrowed towards Lucy as she held out her hand while going through a laughing fit at how another scene of blood started to squirt out like someone stepped on a ketchup packaged from McDonalds. 

A wicked idea formed within his mind as he just shifted what the can of whip cream hovered over. The nozzle now right above her hand as he started to push against it with the tip of his finger and allowed the puff of cream to coil about all over her palm and fingers. While whistling casually as if he was doing absolutely nothing wrong in the first place. Guilt by looking as innocent as possible.

She snickered when he called her needy, knowing she could be demanding and needy. It came from being able to get people to do things for her as a child. Like that seventh year she got to punch a fifth year that was too tall for her to break his nose for bullying a younger student when she was in second year. It was great. She didn't even get in trouble for it and the fifth year avoided her for the next two years he was at school. 

Watching the effects of this movie were the best part. "I'm pretty sure it was ketchup. It's too thick and red to be blood." She had seen enough blood in her field to know what it was supposed to look like when squirting out with a huge injury like the character received. She laughed as he went on to talk about how expensive he would have been as a special effects consultant and had to shake her head at the thought of him helping a movie. "If you did it, the entire thing would be a giant mess of fire by the end," she teased, bumping shoulders with him as she waited for the whipped cream.

Instead of a can of whipped cream in her hand like she'd expected, she suddenly had a dollop of it on her palm. Turning away from the movie, she looked at the offending white cream in her hand and then up at his face. "Oh you brat!" She took the dollop of whipped cream and pressed it to his face, spreading the cream around on his cheek and then pulling her hand away, smirking, shaking off her hand to clean it of the remaining whipped cream. She didn't think she'd get away with that for too long so before he had a chance to retaliate, she reached down to grab the can that was on the floor and hold it up in front of her like she was brandishing a weapon.

Everyone had their quirks and it wasn't something that he minded too much on the needy aspect of the spectrum. After all, most of his friends, which for some reason happened to be dominantly female, were all very interesting cards. Sometimes, he felt like the normal one! Though then he had to consider a lot of the crazy things he had often taken part in life and that kind of thought was instantly overridden as if it hadn't even existed in the first place. 

"Is that red? I thought it was just food coloring smacked into a bunch of glue. Someone really went under the budget with this one. Bet they sat around a campfire thinking 'How much cash can we -not- spend on this!?' "  Derrick couldn't help but shake his head in pure amusement he wasn't even upset at the fact this movie was done in such a way that the classic Godzilla movies looked real with all of its very awkward and stuttered movements. The real sore spot had to been more about the acting than the actual effects, it sounded as if they were trying to dub a foreign film - and the actors spoke English! "Hey, at least the fire would be -real-.  I'd have the entire audience in awe, my name will even be the biggest in the credits. No one's taking away my perfect work of a blaze away from me. Course. . . There would be that whole lawsuit issue of burning someone's clothes away. . ." He squinted a bit as if he were considering the idea all over again then just shrugged it away. "Sometimes you need casualties. Collateral Damage is a risk everyone is going to have to take for me."

Derrick offered Lucy a big grin as he weaved his eyebrows up and down as if to set the situation into a more comedic affair. "You never actually told me to give you the -can-.  Specifics, important~." He had started to gear up to perform another assault but the woman was quick, he had forgot that she had a very high reaction value because of the kind of work she had done in her life. This wasn't a well thought out plan but again, what plan did he have that ever provided increasingly in depth thought before the tables had started to turn? He could feel the smear of the glob press along his face right against his cheek. 

The can started to shake ferociously in his hand. "Oh, You have no idea the kind of war you just started." Rough-housing 101, take down your opponent. This was the mentality he was going down with as he started to try and tackle the woman on the couch and hover the can's nozzle just above her forehead and prepared to pressed down the extended white plastic. A trail of the light confectionary started to swirl and attempt to curl against the entire form of her crown.

Laughing at him, she said, "I'm pretty sure you would make the movie about fire, no matter what the director asked for. It could be a movie about a flood and you would end the whole thing in a giant fireball." She snickered and turned back to the movie, raising her eyebrow at the acting on screen. Shaking her head, she couldn't help but comment on the obvious over-practiced, over-exaggerated hand movements to explain the situation on screen. "Do they really think doctors explain injuries by waving their arms like they're trying to signal an airplane?" She shook her head again.

Squealing in laughter when he tackled her onto the couch, she tried to hold her arms in front of her face to defend herself. With the quick reflexes she learned from her auror days, she was able to move her head just soon enough so that not too much of the whip cream coming from the tip of the can in Derrick's hand got onto her hair. She refused to have to clean too much white cream out of her hair.... Whip cream out of her hair. While pushing his arm away from her as best she could, she shook up the can of whipped cream she'd grabbed from the floor and tried to spray it in his face, hoping she could get him on the nose or get more of it on his cheek where the glob she'd put there was still barely holding onto the skin.

"War? I'll show you war!" Taking the can, she moved it to start spraying on his head instead of in his face, hoping to get a little crown of whipped cream curled up on his hair. It wasn't a great idea and she wasn't sure how long she could keep spraying him before he retaliated, but then a choking noise from the movie caught her attention and she turned to look at it, her can moving to spray on his shoulder instead. "Did... Did that actress really just pretend to choke and actually make herself choke? She just stared at the camera like she was actually going to die..." She laughed at the movie's utter ridiculousness and attempts to outdo itself in how awful it was. Remembering the war, she turned back to Derrick.

"I'm trying to tell you, when the flood apocalypse comes along? You're going to want a guy who knows hot enough fire to evaporate the water before it drowns us all! I'm just saying!" That was his story and he was sticking to it! A grin pressed along his face  as he started to laugh along with the woman as the acting seemed to have taken an even more dramatic flair. Were the producers for the film some kind of High School group from how exaggerated it had started to become? "Either that or they thing waving around like a flailing tubeman makes the wound close up instantly while explaining. Though that'd just be really weird in general."

Derrick had always known she was a speed-demon and had been at a disadvantage in this, but what he lacked in response time in comparison, he made up for with having a superior positioning on top of her. The sudden movement of her head diverted much of his attended target out of the way, well, at least her hair would be white cream free - For now anyways. He hadn't expected his arm to be pushed so it was met with little resistant during the time he tried to find a new way to angle his weapon. Only to have a bit of the can Lucy held release a stream towards his face pressing against his nose in a puffy dollop. A slight snort escaped from him feeling the sent of sweet sugar curl up around his sensory - Merlin - all he could smell was the sugar!

"Crowning me the victor already?! Perfect!" The crown of white had dawned along the dirty blonde locks. This was a good enough opening but limited his actual options so he stuck with the idea of lining up the can to trace along her shirt in a white creamy trail, trying to aim straight towards her neckline. When the sound of the woman purposefully making herself choke on the movie pulled Lucy's attention towards it once more, Derrick decided an initiative was needed and attempted to design a beard of whip cream all along her lower chin and around her lips. "Ha! What? Oh!" His own attention seemed to wane at this point as he looked towards the television half way with a slight snicker that echoed from him. "Honestly, that's probably the most realistic acting that they're going to get with this flick." He tried to shrug it off and then turned his gaze along with Lucy's to stare towards her. "Lucky for you, I'm almost out of whip cream."

Quickly wrenching her head back to look at Derrick when she felt the beard start to take shape and laughed, getting some in her mouth. "Yum." She turned her can back towards him and started drawing stars on his chest. It was a good thing he'd grabbed the mostly full can before he came over. He'd used more of his can than she had of her own so she could outlast him in this war. Even if he could keep her down while he sprayed her, he'd have to let her up at some point. Otherwise she'd just use the rest of her can and then smear her face all over his shirt. 

Taking up the offensive again, she squirmed her way half-free, so at least she had use of her torso to twist and wedge herself between him and the back of the couch so she could spray it into a dollop on his ear. "Crowning you the dork king," she said in all seriousness, her entire focus on peppering him with more dollops of whipped cream all over the collar of his shirt. She still had a half of a can left when she pulled back to admire her work and then began adding to the cream on his head, using her other hand to smear it in as best she could.

An eyebrow perched upwards with a grin that pressed on his face. "I usually do leave a satisfied customer after a whip cream bearding." He could feel the whip cream start to trace along his clothing with the shape of stars being pressed along his shirt. The puffs holding closer to it due to the fabric compared to when it was on his cheek only moments before. "OH! Okay, that's the game you wanted to play huh!?" He started to shift into a fit of laughter even though she had an upper hand when it came to ammunition it only meant he had to take up an idea that was often universal in war. 

Borrow from the battlefield when you were low or out and it seemed he needed to do just that in order to properly compete for just a bit longer. He wasn't going to go down in this white war without a fight and struggle. The remainder of her 'Whip Beard' was still an option as he scooped up what had fell from her face during the shifted movement as he started to smear it along with what clung to her face still along the edges of her neck trying to use his legs and elbows to limit her movement once she had reached the back of the couch and began to spray a dollop along his ear. "Then I dub thee the Jester of Crème. Dance! Humor me in your back couch backdrop!

Then he proceeded to sweep one of his hands from his head to catch the glob of the whip cream and started to push it through Lucy's hair though only at the surface of it avoiding engraining it too deeply. He didn't want her to have to take fifty different showers just to get the sugary treat out of her strands. Derrick found it more opportune to push himself away and rolled off the edge of the couch into a sideways tumble before resting on his back and trying to stand back up. There had been more ammo, a new kind of weapon in the fight! He grabbed the ice cream pint he had barely dug into and whipped out the spoon and started to flick small little ovals of the partially melted snack right towards her stomach as a grin grew wider on his face. He began a strategic retreat and nearly quick tippy-toed stepped towards the kitchen to give himself some more room to plan for this very impromptu battle of the snacks.

Slowly, Lucy could feel her can getting lighter and lighter, her ammo of delicious, sugary goodness dwindling remarkably low. Spraying one last dollop of cream on the side of his head, she suddenly had it smeared everywhere and she couldn't even move her arms to defend herself because he'd pinned them with his elbows. And then he was pushing it through her hair and that was even worse! She was going to have little sugar particle crystals clinging to her hair! She had just started trying to squirm her way out from where he had control of the fight when he pulled away suddenly, the loss of that extra push against her making her fall forward and forcing her to roll off the couch to keep from smacking into the floor.

Landing in a slight crouch, she looked down at her stomach when she felt the ice cream smack against it, looking back up at him in horror at the waste! "That's the expensive stuff!" She yelled, grabbing her pint of ice cream from the floor where it had ended up to start chucking globs of ice cream back at him. "At least get the cheaper stuff from the freezer while you're in there!" She took a bite of the ice cream in her hand before flinging another glob at him, aiming right for the middle of his forehead as she backed up and tried to duck behind the arm of the couch, banging into the side table as she did. With a kick, the end table fell onto its side and blocked a little more, giving Lucy a pretty good hiding spot for her. Yes, it was small, but so was she. And hopefully, Derrick would be distracted soon and she could launch a sneak attack and shove an entire glob of ice cream down the back of his shirt.

The plan was a success! Her hand was about as covered in white as his was and it only meant that things were going to be even more intense. The whip cream seemed to be covered everywhere before he had the time to actually distance himself. The couch, Their clothes, hair, entire faces - this got messy in a matter of seconds but what was to be expected with such a weapon in use? As she landed in a crouch a small smile plucked at his lips. "Nice reflexes, Cat-Woman." It turned into a teasing smirk but he did admire such a graceful stance that she took, something that one couldn't see every day unless a lucky fall was in the process. 

A shrug followed after him as he gave a goofy smile towards Lucy. "Some people are worth the good stuff, Luce. Don't worry it'll all get used! Bwahahaha!" His eyes caught sight of the other pint that had been snatched up and he quickly grabbed the edge of the kitchen table and flipped it over to be his own bunker to try and add a barrier between himself and the woman. "Come make me! I don't follow orders all too well!" That was a truth of the matter, even in school, he was a bit of defiant little bugger. He tried to hit the deck behind the table while a glob of ice cream flew towards him and smacked him right against the left side of his forehead. A heavy 'Humph!' forced itself out of him from him landing against the floor while slightly wiping away the ice cream away enough. "Okay nice to cheat a bit. . ." Derrick started to trace a symbol into the air with his fingers as a conducting instrument. "Wingardium Leviosa." A glob of ice cream had been carved up from the pint lifted up and aimed to fly towards Lucy right at her shoulder. 

"Returning fire~!!!" This aim at her missed entirely as she took the hiding spot made him grumble under his breath. He started to peak over the table to try and get an idea of where his opponent had been only find that she had snuck behind him. Before he could fully turn around he could feel an icy countenance slide in a slimy roll right down his spine. MERLIN That was cold! He cupped a hand right behind his back to catch it before it went too far south into Crack-Valley. Then whipped around to wrap an arm around her to try and pin and pick her up a bit while trying to wipe the ice cream all along the back of her neck in a smearing motion. "Now all I need is a cherry! Hahaha."

Squealing when she saw the giant bit of ice cream headed her way, she was glad she'd ducked at just the right moment as she watched the glob smack against the wall right where her head had been. Thank Merlin she ducked in time! Her hair had enough crap in it! While he was distracted, she snuck around her poorly constructed shelter to walk up behind him, springing up to surprise him by dumping a glob of ice cream down the back of his shirt, laughing the whole way. She started to dart out of range when he ran the ice cream covered hand down the back of her neck, surprising a screech out of her. "Euch! That's disgusting!"

Laughing, she grabbed some ice cream in her hands from the remaining amount in her carton and reached out quickly to smear it across his throat and collarbones, then up to his cheek. "Take that, Mr. Sundae." She wiped her hand down on her shirt and then looked down at herself and up at him. Snorting, she said, "We're a mess. We should probably get cleaned up. Or clean up my apartment. This place looks like a war zone."

A grinned freed on his face as she screeched out in surprise only to have his entire face smeared from throat to collarbone and the all the way towards his cheek. Now he really needed to do some heavy scrubbing with how sticky all of this ice cream and whip creamy mixed and hardened to a more sticky gloss. He'd follow suit with the residue that lingered on the tips of his fingers and palms by smearing it along her own throat and cheek and then drawing a nice long line right down the bridge of her nose. "Now you're ready for a true facial." Derrick let out a heavy laughter before letting her down fully from his grip and then turned his gaze to the apartment first and then looked between the two of them with his eyebrow arching upwards. 

"Aren't sundae's supposed to be licked clean or something?" He shook his head with a small smile on his face and started to trail the tip of his index finger along his cheek to take a gentle lick of it with his tongue. Mmm. .. Ice Cream via himself. Well, that was a weird thought but at least it was still good and edible for a bit gave it a whole new meaning to 'Ice cream slathered'. " 'We should probably get cleaned up'? Last time I heard you say that line was right after messing around in my Dorm room at Tally. That time we had that chocolate syrup fight." That was an interesting night and just for a bunch of teens at that. He had managed to get his Roommate to be somewhere else at that time and things just seemed to escalate from there. "Trying to get me all naked again, ballsy!" Derrick gave one more look to the war zone of an apartment and chuckled a bit. "Something tells me we'd need to do both anyways. Staying sticky is just weird and I don't think your housemate would really appreciate coming back to ice cream over everything. Horror of knowing they missed out on a good time?"

Lucy laughed and shook her head at him, remembering that hot night but also so awkward morning in seventh year. Yeah, they'd never done that again! "Oh you wish, you dirty man." Lucy smacked him in the chest before moving towards the couch again and picking up the empty whipped cream cans and her now empty ice cream carton. Crossing over to the kitchen, she dropped then in the waste bin. 

"Why don't you use my shower and I'll use my housemate's. She probably wouldn't like a strange, weird man to use her shower anyways." She snickered and grabbed a clean towel out of the hall closet, tossing it at him before sighing at the state of her living room and kitchen again. Her housemate definitely wouldn't be happy. She'd have to clean it before her housemate got home so she could use magic.

"Hurry up, though, so we can get this cleaned before my housemate gets home. It's easier with magic and she's a muggle." Without another word, she walked passed him into her housemate's bedroom and then into her bathroom, hopping in the shower to try and scrub all the sugar out of her hair.

Derrick snorted-giggled at her as she smacked him in the chest. "You weren't saying that before either!" He grinned and gently nudged her shoulder with the palm of his hand. Not that he thought anything would go from there. Things were slightly different for them now especially the experiences they had gone through which would have made things either awkward or intensely hot, which, he wasn't sure about. He tossed his own empty carton of ice cream into the waste bin as well and started to lean against the wall listening to the suggestion of using her shower. 

"You do know I have -no- clean clothes about right? I'd have to walk around stark naked and I don't think your housemate is ready for that kind of surprise." Not that he had a bad physical setup going around but as she stated a weird man around especially in the nude drew more questions than anything else. His hand stretched out to grasp hold of the towel feeling only a smidge bad that there had been a cleanup job left over. Just a smidge, that didn't last long either since he had fun with it all. 

"Bossy, bossy. You know I love a woman strong and in charge." His eyebrows wriggled with a grin as he started to head through Lucy's room towards her personal shower. "That's pretty risky~. You know I like to pop in at random." He knew she'd let him know when it was okay or not okay most days but he'd need to be extra careful if that was the case. Once he removed his clothing he started to take a shower taking careful to wash off all the sticky residue from his face and really scrub his hair and beard as deeply as possible. Ugh, all this sugar in the whisker, like it was some tasty wizard's treat. Once he was finished up he stepped out of the shower and dried himself off well before using a spell to quick dry the towel and then wrap it around himself and picking up his clothes. This wasn't the idea he had planned but sudden plans have risks of this level.

Lucy shrugged at him, containing her laugh while walking over to her dresser. Opening the third drawer, she pulled out a large t-shirt and a pair of khaki shorts and tossed them at him. "Here. I took them last time I was at your place. Your shirts are more comfy than mine." She smirked before grabbing her towel out of her bathroom and then heading towards her housemate's room. She supposed it could be risky, but her housemate was only really there to sleep, which was around 3 am after her partying and then she'd wake up at 9 am for her graduate classes. Lucy had never really understood the appeal of lots of partying. She could hardly handle one party with more than five people for more than an hour if she didn't know them.

"Well, she's only here enough to sleep, and on weekends, not even then sometimes." Either way, she wasn't really worried. Her housemate would probably see him pop in and assume she was hallucinating or something before shuffling to her bedroom to sleep. Whatever; she didn't judge. It made Lucy's life easier.

Hopping into the shower, she lathered up some shampoo and scrubbed her hair, face, neck, shoulders, and arms as best she could. And stomach, she almost forgot he'd swiped some across there too. Once she felt clean, she towel-dried her hair so it wasn't dripping and then wrapped up in the towel, walking out towards her bedroom, her clothes still on her housemate's bathroom floor. She'd pick them up later. "Almost done? I forgot my own clothes," she shouted into her bedroom, hoping he'd finished and put on the clothes before she walked in.

Derrick's eyebrow furrowed as she tossed one of his own t-shirts and shorts back at him to get dressed up in. "You -took- my stuff? Ha! I'm not sure if that's hot or creepy." It wasn't a bad thing either way. Wouldn't be the first time she had been wearing one of his things considering he had often stopped by in the past for more nightly extra curricular activities. Especially when her last relationship had been rolling down a pretty dangerous hill whatever it entailed. He never pushed for the information just merely made sure he was there to support - in a few ways. "We're gonna have to talk about your love for robbing me of all my good clothes - especially once a boyfriend steps in the picture for you." His finger wagged at her lightly. 

"Sounds like she's either getting drunk like a skunk or getting more booty than a pirate." He grinned lightly which he wasn't a stranger to a crazy night or five during his college years. Once he had went through the shower and pulled the shirt and khaki's over himself he'd put his sneakers back on, at least they were black and didn't clash at all. Then again he was only a hop, skip, and a jump away from his home anyways. 

When she called into the room his eyes rolled lightly. "As if we hadn't already seen what one another's got. Just come on in and get your staff you weirdo." He laced up his footwear tightly and started to stand up a bit and brushed his clothing down and started to head towards the doorway to exit the bedroom. "Don't you worry, I'm not jumping your bones this time. For starters we already have way too much work even with magic to clean all this mess you made up." He shook his head playfully as he placed the blame on her shoulders. Eyes glanced a bit at her as the towel had been wrapped around her - he nearly forgot that she kept well in shape for her job. "That and we have a really crappy movie to finish. If we don't see how badly the movie ends I'm going to hold you responsible."

Snorting at him, she shook her head. "Your shirts are still comfortable whether I have a boyfriend or not. They just don't need to know they were yours." Whoever she dated next would have to understand that Derrick was one of her closest friends and that he was going to be part of the package. She wasn't going to stop hanging out with him and being herself around him just because she had a boyfriend. And hopefully her boyfriend would trust her enough to know that nothing was going on between them. Anymore.

Shuffling into her room after the shower and pulling out some underwear, slipping it on under her towel because yes they'd seen each other naked, but weren't currently and she had standards, she scoffed at him. "Mess I made? I'm pretty sure you're the one who started it with that whip cream in the hand crap." Quickly, she pulled on a pair of short running shorts and another t-shirt of his from her drawer, rubbing her hair again with the towel and tossing it to land on his face.

"If you're that impatient to finish the horrible movie, let's go clean." Pulling out her wand and casting a few nonverbal cleaning and straightening spells, starting to clean up the giant mess they'd made in the living room. It took a while and she might have let a little bit of cream plop itself onto Derrick's nose with a smirk, but once it was clean, she let herself fall down onto the couch with a loud sigh, casting a spell towards the freezer to bring her a new pint of her favorite ice cream and a spoon. There's a reason she kept multiples of this around. And only part of it was because of her and Derrick's penchant to start throwing food items at each other. "Come sit down so I can lean on you while we finish this. I'm ready to see if the actress actually choked or if it's obvious that they cut to help her before picking the scene back up."

A smile perched on his lips as he nodded in defeat. "Alright, alright! You win this one! I'll save a few of them for you to just randomly snag when you wanted." He wasn't one to try and muscle in on someone else's chance. Not that he expected much would go further than sexual contact between the two of them and that had only been under the circumstances that the two of them weren't actually seeing or interested in another person. She'd been one of his best friends around and someone he always felt comfortable hanging with not willing to risk the kind of friendship they have. What they did it was out of affection towards one another just of a different kind entirely. 

As she shuffled into the room by him he smirked at her from her defiant nature that she had caused it. "I don't know what you're talking about Luc. You enjoy when my white stuff comes along." He rolled his eyes teasingly. He caught the towel a fraction after it had hit his face and a fit of laughter ensued afterwards. "Impatient!? I'll have you know I'm the most patient person around! Sort of." It was conditional and circumstantial and he left it that entirely with the most innocent look on his face that he could muster up. 

Derrick assisted Lucy with cleaning up the area at an expedited pace with a bit of magic here and there to wash down the fabric and floor to the best of its capabilities and then he started to adjust the table and chairs to make sure it didn't look so obvious that some kind of war occurred. Once everything had been set in order he sat next to her and wrapped an arm around her shoulder relaxing into the cushions of the couch. "Hahaha, Okay, but you're now the one that's being impatient!" He hadn't poked around her romantic life of late and he knew that under most circumstances the both of them would have taken the chance given to them. 

"So what's his name~. How does he treat you~? Do I have to set his dresser on fire or put itching powder in his underwear drawer? More importantly! Does he treat you right?" Her happiness and safety were important to him, as important as any of his friends and loved ones would be. He just couldn't help not being in big brother mode when it came to many of these things.

Smirking a little, Lucy curled up into him when he sat down, exactly what she'd wanted. Sitting with him was one of the most relaxing things to her; he was like her brother and while he was younger (a fact she liked to point out when they couldn't agree on something and she wanted to get her way), he definitely acted more like an older brother. It was probably the height thing. "Yeah but it's cute when I'm impatient," she said, preening and pleased with herself.

Then he asked about the guy. Grumbling, Lucy ignored him and turned on the TV movie again, watching for a bit before huffing in frustration, pausing the stupid, really bad movie and looking at him. "We're not... He's not.. I don't even know if he likes me. I mean, I think he does but what do I know? I thought Zan was a good guy." And how well that had turned out. When she'd discovered she'd been dating a cannibal, who had fed her!, she had been freaked out and unsure about dating ever again. And then she'd started to realize that the way she felt about Liam was different than she had felt with Zan, but it was good. She liked him. And she just had to figure out how to make him tell her if he liked her first, because she was not prepared to be the first one to make a move there.

"He's a Quidditch player. And he's funny and kind and I like him? And he's sweet. I don't know; how do I tell if he likes me?" She looked up at Derrick, unsure of herself and that was a weird feeling for her. But after the horror of Zan, she needed reassurance. And Derrick was great at helping her when she needed him.

Bending his arm just slightly more inwards and around her as she curled around him while relaxing his posture just a bit more to give her a comfortable presence in himself. The moment's where he could just relax with his arm around her had been one of the few moments where he found an actual moment in time to not always feel like he's always moving. As if the inside of himself that demanded that he always be doing something active or crazy could chill out and find another time to show its ugly head. His fingers gently curled through her brunette locks as he smirked at her. "Barely cute. You're like that one annoying cat that keeps rubbing its head right into your face. 'Pet me, pet me!'. " A light mocking voice escaped from him as he started to chuckle. 

It was her grumbling after his inquiry that made his expression shift to more of an inquisitive gaze. Was it really something that was so heard to talk about? With him of all people? The more likely scenario probably had been uncertainty in herself or the choice of her heart which only seemed to ring more true as she started to talk about the situation with the 'Other Man'. "Hey, not all the people in your life is as crazy as that situation, you know. I'm -not-." Then again he was never in the position where the two of them had actually considered dating in general. The kind of luck the woman had was, surprisingly, pretty bad in a few cases and at times he thought she cracked a magical mirror or pissed off a good luck unicorn or something. 

"Quidditich player? Haha, still dating those meat heads are ya'? I'm telling you, you need more Sparky's in your life." Derrick shot up a joke for her to help her feel just a bit more at ease. He knew how harsh relationships had been, how wounding they could leave a persons heart and fear that lingered afterwards to try and avoid the loss or avoid the pain of betrayal due to your own choice in ignoring character flaws. "A guy that really likes you? Tends to find ways to stick around even when he shouldn't or doesn't need to, ya know? We're pretty base creatures even crazy nutwads. The way you really separate if a person is crazy or not is just keep your eyes opened. " He pressed a friendly kiss at the top of her forehead and gently laid his chin on the top of her head. 

"Sometimes you need to take that chance. Relationships are always a chance. . . But you don't want to miss out on something that could make a good impact on you. We don't live for long in comparison to some people so you have to take the chances sometimes with it. Grab the bull by the third horn and just tug." His tongue stuck out a bit at his poorly designed dirty joke. "Just make sure that you keep me up to date, you hear? I'll always protect and watch out for you. Haven't let you down yet, have I?"

Lucy couldn't help the offended snort that came out of her as she elbowed him in the side for the cat comment. "I am not. I'm fabulous." She smiled and took a bite of the ice cream she'd gotten, it's slightly melted goodness exactly what she needed. She smiled at his comment about him not being crazy with a raised eyebrow. He certainly could be considered crazy. Just not killing-people-and-feeding-their-parts-to-your-girlfriend crazy. Instead, he was set-fire-to-whatever-I-want crazy. In a good way.

Sighing softly, she leaned back against him more and closed her eyes. She couldn't think of any instances where Liam had made it a point to stay with her or to hang out with her; nothing beyond his normal, sweet, kind personality. She'd have to pay attention for something but she wasn't sure if there would be anything. He was probably just kind and wanted to just be friends. It'd be just her luck to ask him if he liked her and to ruin a friendship.

She snorted again when he made a dirty joke, chuckling softly and then sighed. "You're right. I'll just... see how it goes next time we hang out." She smiled at his comment about not letting her down. "Well, I suppose since you never actually met Zander, it's not entirely your fault that I didn't realize how crazy he was."

A firm grunt escaped from him once her elbow narrowed into his ribs with a grin painted on his face still. "Testy, testy!" He shook his head and gently tapped his finger on her nose like she was a feline. He enjoyed poking the danger zone but he knew he couldn't keep it up or it will just end up with everything mess after they had just cleaned up. "Oh, I never said you -weren't- fabulous." He kept his sights focused on her even as her eyebrow arched and he already knew. . . She was probably thinking 'Who said you weren't crazy'? Chances are he was more of a harmless crazy unless he had a reason to actually set something on fire. "I will only agree to slight zany like Bugs Bunny." He enjoyed the various antics that happened through out the cartoon. 

His arms lowered to wrap around her midsection just a bit and linked his own fingers together giving her just a bit more comfort. She was right, he never met Zander or he probably would have picked up the creeptastic vibe that people seemed to miss apparently. He heard enough about what he had done and what had been sent down Lucy's throat as 'home cuisine' enough for him to need a shower for an entire year. There was just a level of disgusting that came about doing something so depraved and inhuman. "Yea, just ask him out make sure you have a plan. If he says yes then you're already on a pretty good start.

It had been sometime since he had dated, truly dated. He wasn't entirely a stranger from the occasional nightly wrestling but once you lose someone after so many promises, after trying to build a life and losing a person through violence and hate. . . It somewhat stunts the desire to want to grow that close to anyone without putting up shields like he was on the Enterprise. "Hey, I can only be blamed for the stuff I'm allowed to -ACTUALLY- be around you know!" He prodded a finger into the side of her stomach to tickle her a bit after his words. Audacity! To even consider to maybe, perhaps, blame him! 

"If you want me to be around you gotta' be opened with me. Er. . . As long as it doesn't violate your relationship too much. Certain things I don't need to know but other things I'd like to think you'd just tell me." Due to how little in connection he had with family members he had learned to find similar strength in friendships that were long-lasting and healthy. Lucy had been one of his healthy ones that he kept around. "That way you can come to me one day and say 'You're going to be an Uncle Sparky!'. And then I can start fake crying and throwing myself on the floor in happiness." He wanted to see the woman build a life, after all she had endured she deserved that much. Especially in her career where death was a much higher percentage.

Laughing softly, she lightly batted his arm with the spoon and settled into him more. "I suppose you do have a wild, crazy, Bugs Bunny-esque quality. I'll concede that you're only as zany as he is." Which was extremely zany. And unique. Which was true; Derrick was one of the most unique people she'd met and she was glad she'd grabbed him in school and made him her friend. Or rather, he'd asked her to participate in a prank and she'd picked the target and that started their "defeat the bullies but in a funny way that only has a 62% chance of physical harm." 

She looked at him at the "allowed to be around" comment, because she'd never told him he couldn't be around. He was just travelling. "I mean, you could have popped in one day and said, 'Yo Luce, where's your creepy cannibal boyfriend?' and I'd have introduced you." She squirmed away from his prodding finger and snort-laughed, "So I suppose you can take at least 25% of the blame for that relationship. I will accept the remaining 75%." 

Smiling, she nodded at him as she took another bite of ice cream and then held out a spoonful for him. "Yeah, I suppose. You should expect a plethora of letters if he and I do start dating. And if, and when, that little stick turns positive, you will be the first to know. After whoever did it, I suppose." She grinned and leaned against him again. "Just... don't show them fire until they're at least six years old, okay? I do not need a fire-creating toddler running around." Just imagining that was scary enough for her. Her poor future furniture wouldn't be able to handle it. And neither would her sanity.
