It had been two weeks since that last, wrenching phone call.

Ghanima sprinkled sand over her letter to Captain Algren, waiting for it to absorb the excess ink and setting it aside. She could only hope that it would arrive at its intended destination, and that she would receive an answer. His journal sat in the chest in her bedroom, wrapped and ready to be returned at the slightest sign that its original owner wished to reclaim it.

She had yet to hear from Biff or Tyler, and either of them only got another day or two before she tried calling on her own. She had no doubt that they were alive, they were both too stubborn to stay vanished forever, but she wouldn't put it past either of them to still be in a drunken celebratory 'the world did not end' stupor.

[OOC: Expecting a call, but open door & open post!]

Tyler, it should be noted, had not been all that drunk.

In bed with Tony, but not drunk.

Mostly, he'd been trying to get his feet back under him. Plus "hey, just so you know, the world didn't end," was a message that made him feel like a moron.

Still. He owed her that much. He picked up his phone and dialed.

"Durden," Tyler said, trying to swagger a bit in his voice. "You might want to write this down, Ghani. World didn't end."

"... so does that mean I owe you two pizzas, or one really big one?" Tyler wasn't quite up to uncoiling the complications of multiple personalities right then. "And did you and Leto make it through okay?"

"Hania?" Tyler wondered, but shook his head. "People just started ... going. Then it was places. Then it was Tony. Then it was half of Malibu. Then I pretty much knew I wasn't going to make it either, so I called you."

Lucky, lucky, Ghanima.

"Mazel tov," Tyler said easily. "How's the auntie ... thing?"

He shrugged, sighed. "On a totally intellectual level, it was kind of cool," he said. "Not that I'd want to kill off six billion of us, but if it was going to happen, I'm going to step back and see what it looks like."

Tyler groaned. "You are allowed to hang up on me," he said, about the horrific joke. "And I don't know. At the end, so much was getting lost ... kind of lost track of who I was, too." A sheepish beat. "Time to go talk to a nice doctor about my pills, huh?"

"But part of his fun is that they're horrible," Tyler explained. "Underwater basket-weaving? Don't know if I can get over needing to breathe, but the hobby part's a decent idea."

"Not unless Tony counts," Tyler said, with real regret. "Sorry. It's hard to stay in touch when you leave the island."

Biff had spent the time since Sunday drunk or in a pizza-and-bacon coma.

Or sleeping with women.

But that was pretty standard for Biff.

He finally remembered to call Ghanima back.

"Bacon came back!"

That was not an excuse, Biff.

"I did indeed!" Biff said, sounding pleased with himself. "She was a recovering vegetarian!"

"It was excellent bacon," Biff said. "Well worth coming back for. What did you all do, anyway?"

"You couldn't have remembered me taller?" Biff teased.
