(The Hartford townhouse. The Overdrive team is gathered for a holiday party. And right now, Ronny is holding Lucia. Ronnie and Ty are both looking at Lucia.)
Ronny: Ollie. Oliver: Yeah? Ronny: I want to have a little girl. Lucia's just so adorable. Oliver: I'm sure we'll have one someday.
(Oliver quickly takes a picture, one which Ronnie will show Max in Corinth.)
Mack: Careful wth my Goddaughter there, Ronny. Ronny: I've got experience from my two handfulls, Mack. One baby is no problem. Rose: Luke and I will be glad once she starts sleeping though the night. Ronny: You've got a few months to go. Oliver: You know, Christmas Eve, or, as we Minutiaeians call it, the night before the Feast, is one of my favorite days. Dax: Why is that? Oliver: Four years ago tonight, I asked Ronny to marry me. And I havent regretted it one bit. Dax: I wish I had a girl to propose to. Will: Yeah, you and I are the only bachelors left. Not counting Spencer and Mr H. Spencer: I have had my share of romances, Master Will, I just never met the perfect woman. More lemonade? Oliver: Always.
(Morning has come, and nearly gone. Almost all the presents have been unwrapped.)
Kim: There's one last present under the shrub. Junior: It says To Morphos, from Lord Mulitplas. It's for you, Dad.
(Junior hands the present to Brian.)
Brian: Let's see what he brought me this year. I remember one cycle, back on Minutiae, he brought me a combatra tunic.
(Brian unwraps the gift, It's the watch Kim bought him.)
Brian: He must have found my list. Kim: He had helpers here on Earth. Brian: I'm sure he did. This watch is a work of art.
(A few floors down...)
Kitty: Daddy, how does Lord Mulitplas get all the way from Minutiae to deliver these presents? Barty said it's a really long way from here. Bruce: Well, once every year, which coincedentally happens on the Feast of Multiplas, a space warp opens, which allows him to travel back and forth between the two planets in a matter of minutes. Kitty: Then how does he get into all our apartments? Bruce: He has a magic key, made a very long time ago in the great city of Indicia, which is where Uncle Brian, Uncle Bob and Cousin Bart were born. Kitty: Now that would be a news story, huh, Mommy? Cassidy: Yes, it would be.
(In the Crowmeowme Tower home theater, Willy and Angela are wtching Star Wars, the new Blu-Ray release, which Willy got for the Feast.)
Willy: The first time I saw this was the special edition, when I was not quite 2. Angela: My Dad showed this to me when I was five. Willy: Dad also showed me the original theatrical version. And I mean original. He's got a film print from the original run, before they called it Episode IV. Angela: Wow. Willy: We had an actual theater at the mansion back in Angel Grove. Angela: That's so cool. Willy: It was.
Brian: What should we open for midnight? Bollinger? Dom Pérignon? Cristal? Or something domestic. Kim: You're the expert. Too bad Kat cant have any this year. Brian: Same thing as when you were pregnant with KK and Junior. Kim: Yeah. Brian: Maybe she can have some of the sparkling cider? Willy wanted me to buy some for him and Angela, after Bruce mentioned that's how he and Cassidy celebrated their first New Year's Eve together. Kim: Or our first four together. Brian: True. And of course. the fireworks barge on the lake is ready. Kim: Midnight fireworks. How perfect.
Kat: And Happy Birthday, Eliza. Eliza (yawning): Can I have my presents now? Bob: Let's wait until you've had a good night's sleep. Big girls of 5 need plenty of sleep.
(Bob picks Eliza up to carry her up to the apartment. Fiteen years later, on Mirnoi. Bobby has finally settled down with a girl, named Zoey, and they're welcoming in Mirinoi's first baby of 2027. Or rather, babies.)
Alfred: Well? Bobby: Born just after midnight. Alfred: Just like Eliza. Bobby: It's triplets. Three boys. Billy: Three new cousins. Wow. Willy: Do you two have enough names picked out? Bobby: Zoey wants to name them after some favorite characters of her's when she was a kid. Alfred: Who? Bobby: Alvin, Simon and Theodore. Billy: Who? Alfred: The Chipmunks, Billy. We'll show you and Melissa the movies sometime. Willy: Nothing wrong with Theodore. That's Dad's middle name. Well, his Earth middle name. I'm not sure they use middle names back on Minutiae.

<PRWF HQ, 1/18> (Rainbow adjusts the site to protest SOPA) Melissa: I take it you don't like that bill. Rainbow: Twitter, Wikipedia... and more would be crushed by it. Tempestt: I hear that many sites are protesting. I would like to send our senator a letter. Melissa: As would I. (Rainbow nods) <tbc>

(PRWF HQ, January 20) Melissa: Happy birthday. Rainbow: Same to you, love. Melissa: I guess the usual dinner out, right? Rainbow: Yes. Mary's choice. Melissa: We'll ask her as soon as she gets home. Rainbow: We also need to get her ready for her bat mizvah next year. (Melissa nods) <tbc>

(Mallzord, about 6 pm) Mary: Your promised. Tuxedo: I did. (Tuxedo is taking Mary to Chuck E. Cheese for pizza and games) Melissa (to Rainbow): You did tell her about the time you threw up in Florida? (Rainbow nods) Rainbow: I just won't have pizza. Even though it is their entire menu. Mary: I want some tokens for Skeeball. Rainbow: 10 dollars worth. That's it. (Mary nods) Melissa: I have found a rabbi to start giving her lessons for her bat mitzvah. It should be around this time next year. Rainbow: Good. We have to have food afterwards. It is tradition. <tbc>

Mary is nearby, playing. So far, she has 30 tickets, and about 8 bucks left. Mary: I keep missing the 100 point cup, but seem to hit the 50 about once every two times. (Rainbow tosses a ball, and is short of the 100, he scores only 10) Rainbow: Too hard. <tbc>

Mary: We have enough wood, we just need some electronics.
<Past> Mary: I know. If a apply the same force I did... (Another 100 point shot) I will keep the score elevated. (Mary throws another ball. 100 points. Her last is also 100. 5 tickets) Mary: I think I will like this game. <tbc>

Mary: Oh, that one. It is a chance wheel. It sort of reminds my dad of a roulette wheel. (Mary goes to the next wheel. It has recently given out 20 tickets. The maximum is 1000) Mary: Hmm... let me see. (Mary inserts a token and pulls the handle. The wheel spins.) Mary: Two seconds. I see. (Mary releases the handle, and looks at the stop button, counting) Mary: Stop. (Mary hits the button. The wheel stops at 25 tickets, close to 250.) Mary: I was just a bit off. <tbc>

(Mary is closer to about 5000 tickets after her $10 is done with. She looks at the stuff there) Mary: Not enough for a DS game, What else do I want? (OOC: Yeah, Dave and Busters near me has this) <tbc>
Brian: OK, everything's set for Wednesday. Kim: I cant believe our baby is going to be seven Brian: Well, I know someone who's turning 36 in two weeks, but doesnt look a day older then 21. Kim: You're going to make me blush. You know, this is the longest we've gone without another baby. Willy was three when KK was born, and she was six, three months shy of seven, when Junior came along. Brian: And the fact that Kat's pregnant for the fourth time is giving you ideas. Kim: A few. Say, is it just a coincedence that all three of your sisters-in-law are blonde. Brian: Hmm, you're right. Kat, Dana, Cassidy, all three. My guess is, Bruce and Ben got that from Bob. You know I prefer brunettes. You, Dulcea, Pina. Kim: What about your girlfriend back on Minutiae? Brian: Maxi Macronite. Yeah, she was a brunette. Her hair was the same shade as yours, but naturally curly. Kim: Would you like it if my hair was curly? Brian: It doesnt matter what you do to your hair, I will love you until I join my ancestors, and even after. Besides, curly hair makes it harder for me to do this.
