AN: Greetings, minions. *tears* Thank you for your kind words of encouragement... I had loads of fun writing Komui's reaction. Allen really shouldn't have told him. I was going to make it that Lavi and Allen were going to become Kanda's dentist instead of Lau Jimin's but then I thought that Kanda probably doesn't need a dentist because of his healing abilities... oh well, I'm sure Lau Jimin (General Klaud's monkey) is just as terrible to be a dentist for. Also, I can now play the 14th's song AND Lala's lullaby on the piano... I keep drifting back over to the piano and playing them.
PS. I'm thinking of writing another fanfiction, one about Alma, and what the series would have been like if he had lived. I've already written a couple of chapters. Lots of feels in one of them. Though it might make the series a little dull, since obviously Alma would have made Kanda nicer over the years, less...him. What do you guys think? Should I write it? Should I wait until I've finished this first or just post it whenever I write it?
PPS. Sorry if this seems too short. I'm just trying to keep you guys happy as quickly as I can ;_; shorter chapters means they come quicker, yes?
DISCLAIMER: Everyone except the Farmans belong to Katsura Hoshino, and the story. And my soul. GOD DAMN IT JUMP, MOVE D. GRAY-MAN TO THE WEEKLY MAGAZINE. I'M SICK OF WAITING TO SEE WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED 35 YEARS AGO. I WISH CROSS OR BOOKMAN WOULD COME AND GIVE ME THE KIND OF HEADBUTT THAT EXPLAINS EVERYTHING LIKE THE DOCTOR DID TO CRAIG IN 'THE LODGER' EPISODE OF DOCTOR WHO.
Reever and Brigitte Fey watched Komui on the phone, making sure the lazy chief wasn't slacking off.
"ALLEN... YOU MEAN... MY PRECIOUS BABY SISTER... MY DARLING LITTLE LENALEE...IS NOW MY PRECIOUS BABY BROTHER?!" Lenalee's older sibling was practically breathing fire.
Half of the scientists present (Johnny, Cash, Jiji, Rob and a few others) turned and stared. You could see them visibly shudder at the thought of a male Lenalee in a skirt, serving them coffee.
"YOU HAD BETTER GET HER BACK TO NORMAL OR I WILL UNLEASH KOMLIN XI, XII, XIII AND XIV ON YOU THREE AND I WILL MAKE YOU SCRUB EVERY FLOOR OF HEADQUARTERS AND YOU CAN CONSIDER YOURSELF LAU JIMIN'S DENTIST UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE."
Allen rubbed her sore ear and put the telephone down, Komui having already hung up. She sighed.
Since Komui had slammed the phone down as soon as he had finished, instead of pretending to still be on the phone as he normally did, Reever, Johnny and Rob tackled him.
"You've still got more Komlins?! Do your job for once instead of wasting time!" the Science Section Head yelled.
"So? What did he say?" asked Lavi, who had been standing next to the phone booth.
"He mostly just yelled at me and told me to turn Lenalee back to normal."
"Not caring what happens to us as usual," Lavi said, sneezing a moment later. "Jeez, I'm freezing. How can Lenalee bear to wear this skimpy thing?"
"Don't complain. We don't want her...him walking around in a skirt right now, do we? This was the best decision."
"Lavinia! Helen!" Lenalee called out to the two, sitting with Kanda in a cafe. The four had decided to use names more appropriate for their current genders for the time being, at least when in public. As much as the boys objected, they may have drawn unwanted attention if there was girls going around male names, and vice versa. They definitely did not want to end up like Alicia Farman had. As Allen and Lavi crossed the street to get to the cafe, a waitress offered to refill the drinks of Lenalee and her 'lady friend'. Even from a distance, they could see Kanda itching to slice the poor girl up.
"How'd you go?" Lavi asked, sliding herself into a chair. "Find any akuma, Lee?"
"No, not a single one. How about you?"
"Nope. Even Helen's eye didn't pick up any."
Kanda looked extremely mad.
"What's the matter, Yuko?" Lavi asked, putting her face within a foot of Kanda's face, which is never a good idea.
"Don't call me by my-!" Kanda faltered, remembering that Yuko, while similar to Yu, technically wasn't her first name. So she couldn't punish Lavi for calling her by her first name when the redhead called her that. Lavi smirked, realising this.
"Hey, Yuko! Yuko! YUUUUKO! YUKO! You look reeaally frustrated now! Would going shopping or looking at good-looking guys like normal me make you feel better?" Lavi beamed, her eyes sparkling.
Kanda snapped. "YOU STUPID RABBIT!" she yelled taking out Mugen and preparing to kill her companion. Lavi yelped and pulled out her hammer to block the sword. She closed her eyes and winced as the sword collided with her skull.
"Ow!" she opened her eyes and rubbed her head. Mugen was completely black, and inactivated. Kanda frowned and took a swipe at Lavi again. The sword stayed black, even though she thought for it to activate, and it simply bounced, albeit painfully, off of Lavi's head. The redhead pouted, rubbing the painful lumps on her head, and glanced at her hammer.
"That's weird, I thought I invoked..." Lavi's hammer, like Mugen, had remained inactivated and tiny.
"Big hammer, little hammer, grow, grow, grow!" she said experimentally.
"Mugen, unsheathe!" Kanda growled. Neither of their anti-akuma weapons responded.
"Lee, Helen, try yours!" Lavi said, now worried.
Both Allen and Lenalee tried to activate their innocences, but neither the blood-coloured anklets that Lenalee left around his ankles nor the cross in Allen's left hand changed at all.
They were all seriously worried now.
"I think we should go back to the hotel," Lenalee said.
"Allen, behind you!" Lavi yelled.
The waitress from before had come back, and as Allen turned around a gun protruded from the woman's body, her form exploding into that of a level one akuma.
As they took cover from the blood bullets that rained down on them, Allen's eyes were wide with shock.
What's wrong with the Crown Clown? And why didn't my eye sense that akuma? What is going on?!
