[A young man stands in his bedroom. It just so happens that today, the 8th of December, is NOT this young man's birthday, and he already has a name! So re-using this tired old joke isn't really going to work, now is it.

Okay, so a young man is standing in his bedroom. Except that it's not his bedroom, even though there are pictures of him all over the place! John Egbert is pretty sure that he would remember what his bedroom looked like, and last time he checked it had been destroyed and was being overrun by imps. John's not sure of many things right now, but he's definitely sure that he don't see no imps in this here bedroom.]

When Jade brought us through that wall, I didn't think this is where we'd end up...

[Time to explore! John heads outside and surveys the neighborhood, and for a while he thinks he may have somehow ended up back in his own neighborhood. This definitely isn't his house, though, and none of these neighbors look very familiar! In fact, the only thing in the front yard that really reminds him of home is the mailbox.

>John: leave a surprise for the mailman.

What? No, that's stupid. He's not going to do that.

>John: poop in the mailbox.

Absolutely not. Never gonna happen.

>John, you take a dump in that mailbox this instant.]

N.... No! I won't!

[Passersby are free to find John staring intensely at his front yard's mailbox, as if wrapped in some deep moral quandry.]

[ oh hey john's back.

dave feels like this should be cause for celebration, or at least... i dunno. something. saying hi might be a good start.

but uh. why is he staring at that mailbox so intently? and... yelling at it? he's always known that egbert was kind of a weird kid, and never judged. too harshly. but this display is a bit strange even for him.

maybe he was better off... not being back... whatever for the time being dave will just stand and observe this rather perplexing behavior, while definitely not feeling any urge to piss on anything or bleat like a goat.

because that would be stupid. ]

Having fun there, kiddo?

[Oh hey, John's back.

He hadn't been gone very long, so ordinarily Karkat wouldn't care so much, but it just so happens that he's had a series of incredibly exhausting encounters today that have left him on iffy terms with most of his friends, and it's kind of relief to see John just being a complete idiot like always.

Anyway he'll just walk up to John and wait for him to notice someone's there.]

[After several minutes of silent staring, John finally snaps out of it.]

Oh! Hey! Dave! There you are. Uh, where are we?

Whoa! [John snaps out of it!] Er. Hi, do I know you? Sorry, I'm a little confused at the moment.

[For a moment, John's trembling hands go to the sides of his pants...

...but then he rips them away, shaking himself violently.]
Bluh! Okay, that was dumb.

[HOLY CRAP SOMEONE'S THERE] Whoa! Don't scare me like that!

Yeah, I don't really know what I'm watching, but at least we can agree it was dumb.

So you're unpanscrubbed. Do you remember anything?

Uh... wait you mean you don't remember?

Hi! Nope, we've never met, as far as I can remember. [She smiles and spreads her arms out.] I'm Miakis, and - you're new, right? Welcome to Mayfield~

What are you doing? I think the mail in your mail receiving unit has already been emptied, John. That is your name right? I think Jade or Dave has mentioned it once before to me, but I haven't actually spoken to you in person before.

I remember lots of things, including but not limited to an extensive array of majestic cinematic masterpieces. Probably not whatever you're talking about, though.

...hey, do I know you? You seem kinda familiar... [Where has he heard that angry tone before hmmmmmmmmm]

John's head whips towards it, and he suddenly uses his wind powers to blow it away!!!! oh wait, he doesn't have them and that's stupid anyway. John takes the pie in the face like a champ.]

[John's thoughts are momentarily taken away from pooping in the mailbox long enough to register that he has been tacklehugged by his ectosister!!!]

Hehehe. [He hugs her back warmly.] Glad to see we both made it through okay!
