"What are you wearing?"

Adagio Dazzle looked up to find her former minions, current friends, and sisters in all but blood standing in the doorway to her room. Aria stood in the doorway most, brow furrowed as she stared at Adagio. Sonata was behind her, looking over her shoulder with wide eyes.

Turning away from her computer, Adagio faced the pair. She straightened up as much as she could while sitting in a desk chair, and crossed her arms. Her own eyes narrowed and lips pressed thin as she put on her best annoyed face.

"What have I told you two about knocking?" she asked, her voice edged with irritation as she glared at the pair.

"Your door was open," Aria Blaze replied. She crossed her own arms and leaned against the frame. "And don't change the subject. What are you wearing?"

Adagio stared at the pair for a long moment, giving a subtle hint of annoyance and anger as she did. Normally, she could stare down the pair, giving them the right look long enough to get them to fall in line. There were times when it did not work, of course, such as when they were fighting like two toddlers who had been up a week straight drinking nothing but coffee, or on a rare occasion when they were able to actually focus on something and take it seriously for more than two minutes. Given the circumstances, it was unlikely for her death glare to work, especially since it seemed that Aria was actually focused on her.

"It's a hooded sweatshirt," Adagio answered. "Commonly referred to as a 'hoodie.'" She stuck her nose in the air, turning her head slightly. "I would think that after all this time, you would know that."

"I know what a hoodie looks like!" Taking a step forward, Aria pointed at Adagio and her 'hoodie.' "That one looks more like one of Sonata's stupid animal pajamas --"

"Kigurumi," Sonata stated.

"Don't care," Aria retorted before returning her attention to Adagio. "-- and it also looks exactly like your old siren form." She took another step forward. "Now what is it and why are you wearing it?!"

"And is that a tail?" Sonata asked, pointing past Aria.

"Yes, it is," Adagio answered. Reaching back, she grabbed the tail to pull against her, hugging it against her chest. "And in answer to your question: it's a fully custom designed hoodie based on the look of my siren form that I ordered."


"Because the designer gave me a discount if I advertise them in my blog, and I needed one to wear one if I was going to endorse it." Adagio turned away, lifting her nose in the air. "I do have some morals when it comes to what I will and will not allow myself to be associated with."

Aria let out a growl of annoyance. One hand reached up to her face, rubbing at her eyes.

"Besides," Adagio continued, facing the other two again with a grin, "it's so soft and warm." She hugged the tail tighter. "It's a high quality cotton fleece, and is machine washable in case it gets dirty." She then lowered her head, letting the siren head fall over her face. "And look at how cute it is."

"You don't do cute!" Aria yelled, throwing her hands up. She motioned behind her. "Sonata does cute." She motioned at herself. "I do bad girl." She then pointed at Adagio. "And you do sexy."

Adagio looked up just enough for her raspberry eyes to peak out from under the hood.

"Are you saying I'm not cute?" she asked, a hint of sadness in her voice. She then stuck out her lower lip in a pout.

"Jeeze, Aria," Sonata shouted out. "How can you be so mean?"

"I SWEAR, SONATA, I WILL DROWN YOU IN THE TUB IF YOU DON'T SHUT UP!" Aria shouted, turning to glare at the blue skinned girl.

"Look," Adagio called out, getting the attention of the other two. She let her tail go and sat back, looking up at Aria and Sonata from her chair. "None of us have to be any one way." She looked back down, letting the hood cover her face again. "Especially now that we don't have to work together to try and siphon negative emotions."

There was a moment of silence as she sat there. Taking a breath she straightened up, but still did not look at the others.

"I don't want to be just sexy. I want to try other things, including cute. No one is asking you to wear one as well." Adagio smirked. "Although, if you wanted to, I could give you the site and a discount code. They also make kigurumis and plush toys."

"Oh-oh-oh!" Sonata cried out, pushing past Aria and rushing over to Adagio. "You mean I can have a kigurumi that looks just like me when I used to be a siren too?"

A larger smile spread across Adagio's face as she looked up at the excited Sonata.

"You sure can," she replied. Adagio then turned to the computer. "Let me just pull up the site, and you can fill out the application."

"Awesome," Sonata cheered, hopping up and down. She gripped the back of the desk chair, leaning over a staring excitedly at the screen.

Aria Blaze stood in the doorway, mouth hanging open and brow furrowed. Her purple eyes shifted from Adagio, to Sonata, to the computer, and stopped back on Adagio. She then threw her head back, letting out a massive groan of frustration.

"For crying out loud!" she shouted. "Am I the only one in this house who hasn't gone insane?"

Neither Adagio nor Sonata even seemed to Aria's shouting, much less acknowledge that she had said anything. Instead the two were focused on the computer screen, with Sonata saying what to put, and Adagio typing it out.

With a final huff, Aria turned and stomped off, leaving the pair to their insanity.
