Always Be Prepared

Mad-Eye Moody sat at the table, scowling at the person across from him. His scarred visage would have caused most others to quake in fear, but the man facing him seemed to be completely unaffected.

In fact, he was scowling right back. Quite impressively, too.

"I'm tellin' ya, I'm the most paranoid person in the world. I'm prepared for everything!" Moody spit out.

"I have contingency plans for the contingency plans of my back-up, back-up contingency plans," the dark figure growled back.

Mad-Eye rolled his one good eye and retorted, "That's just common sense, Bat-thing." He waved at his peg leg and continued, "I have plans in place for the loss of limbs, or I'd have two peg legs!"

In response, Batman pulled something from his utility belt and set it on the table with a smirk.

Mad-Eye looked at the canister carefully, poking it with his wand and casting several dozen diagnostic charms on it. Satisfied that it wasn't going to explode or maul him in some way, he kept one eye on Batman while he gingerly picked up the canister, reading the side to figure out what it was.

"Shark Repellent?" Moody hummed in thought for a second before asking, "Where do you get this stuff, I've been looking everywhere for it and no one carries it."
