Rachel grinned. "I revel in my uniqueness," she quipped, her grin shifting into a smirk, eyes sparkling with mirth. "it's a pleasure to meet you, Cole." She listened attentively to his next comment, snorting before dramatically swooning backwards into her seat, chuckling as though he had told a particularly funny joke.

"I'm hoping for the blue and bronze myself, but I think my parents would rather I were a Gryffie." Taint began to investigate her hair as she spoke, cawing in irritation when the hand signals enunciating her every word seemed particularly dangerous towards his person.

"It will probably take a while - it'll be an experiment more than anything else, I believe."

Giving Ross an affectionate pat on the head Semper settled back into his seat, letting out a whoosh of air as he reclined, spread-eagled and apparently exhausted.
"Sorry for the wait."
