Who: Dag and Tibby
What: Breakfast

Dag saw the girl sitting at a table eating breakfast and immediately recognized her as Lena's friend. He grabbed a muffin and took a seat across from her.
He wanted to sound cool so he tried to remember how the kids talk. "Hey," he said, "What's up?"

"Not a whole lot," Tibby said, spreading butter on her bagel. "Just reflecting on my bizarre imprisonment."

She took a bite of her bagel and chewed on it thoughtfully.

"So Lena tells me you're twenty-eight," she said.

Dag furrowed his eyebrows, embarrassed.

"Yeah," he said. "Lena's...very mature. So, you know. She's probably too mature for teenage boys."

Tibby nodded.

"That's true," she said. "I guess it's not that big a deal. What's a decade? So, what bands do yo like? Answer carefully. I'm prepared to judge."
canadiandag From: canadiandag Date: July 16th, 2008 10:16 pm (UTC) (Link)
Dag narrowed his eyes. "Hey, I stopped letting teenage girls judge me as soon as I got out of high school."

He took a bite of his muffin. "So, keeping in mind that I'm not at all trying to impress you, I like Jawbreaker and Rites of Spring and The Promise Ring. What do you like?"
tibberonn From: tibberonn Date: July 16th, 2008 10:33 pm (UTC) (Link)
Tibby smiled approvingly, both at his musical taste and his reaction to her being a bitch.

"Nice. Very old school. I went through a phase about a year ago where I just listened to Kiss the Bottle over and over and over again. I really like The Misfits and Modest Mouse and Ween. And this band called The Dead Hensons. They do punk covers of songs from the Muppet Show."

Dag nodded, but then furrowed his eyebrows. She was obviously just calling them old school to rub it in that Dag was old. He kept up with current music. "That's cool," he said. "But those bands aren't old school. I mean, maybe Rites of Spring..."
tibberonn From: tibberonn Date: July 16th, 2008 10:40 pm (UTC) (Link)
Tibby raised an eyebrow.

"I guess old school is in the eye of the beholder. But, I mean, I was in preschool when The Promise Ring and Jawbreaker were in their heyday, so for me, yeah. Definitely old school."

Dag raised an eyebrow. "I think you're confused," he said. "Blake Schwarzenback was in middle school when you were in preschool. And I just brought the new Jawbreaker album about a month before I came here."
tibberonn From: tibberonn Date: July 16th, 2008 10:45 pm (UTC) (Link)
Tibby frowned.

"New album? They broke up in, like, '96, dude. Are we talking about different Jawbreakers or something? Because I thought there was just the one."

Dag's eyes widened.

"Tibby," he said, "when I left Palm Springs and came here, it was 1991."

tibberonn From: tibberonn Date: July 16th, 2008 10:54 pm (UTC) (Link)
"Holy shit," Tibby said. She stared at him in disbelief for awhile. Finally, she added, "Lena and I just came from 2004."
canadiandag From: canadiandag Date: July 16th, 2008 10:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
Dag's eyes widened. "Wow," he said.

"But...if Lena's 18 in 2004, that would mean that...where I'm from, she's five."
tibberonn From: tibberonn Date: July 16th, 2008 11:01 pm (UTC) (Link)
"Man..." Tibby said. "Wow. You're, what... forty-one in our time? Did you and Lena date all this time and never realize that?"

Tibby's mind was thoroughly blown.
canadiandag From: canadiandag Date: July 16th, 2008 11:03 pm (UTC) (Link)
"I guess years really never came up," Dag said. "Well...I guess we got pulled out of our own times because it was the only way we could be together."

Dag thought that was actually pretty beautiful.
tibberonn From: tibberonn Date: July 16th, 2008 11:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
"Wow," Tibby said, smiling a little. "That's so crazy."

Suddenly, her eyes narrowed. "You are not taking Lena to 1991. You know that, right?"
canadiandag From: canadiandag Date: July 16th, 2008 11:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
He nodded. "Yeah," he said. "I don't mind going to 2004 with her. She can take me Back to the Future! Do you know what that is? Do people still talk about Back to the Future? It's a movie. You could ask your parents about it when you get back."
tibberonn From: tibberonn Date: July 16th, 2008 11:12 pm (UTC) (Link)
Tibby smiled in relief.

"I love Back to the Future," she said. "It has, like, three sequels now. All of them excellent."

Dag nodded while Tibby spoke.

"So...are you looking forward to meeting your true love? He could be from the 70s or...The Catcher in the Rye."
tibberonn From: tibberonn Date: July 16th, 2008 11:15 pm (UTC) (Link)
Tibby grinned.

"Yeah," she said. "Hey, wait, what? Catcher in the Rye? Are there fictional characters running around here?" she asked excitedly.

"Lena didn't tell you?" Dag asked excitedly. "She went on a date with RP McMurphy. And my friend Andy is dating Julia from 1984."
tibberonn From: tibberonn Date: July 16th, 2008 11:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
Tibby gasped.

"1984 is my favorite book! Can I meet her? Please? Julia has been my hero since middle school!"
canadiandag From: canadiandag Date: July 16th, 2008 11:21 pm (UTC) (Link)
"Sure," Dag said. "We should all have dinner tonight." He grinned and said, "You and Lena can tell Andy what stocks he should invest in so that he can provide for Julia properly when they go back to 1991."

Tibby laughed. "Avoid ENRON at all costs. So, who's president right now for you? Is it Clinton yet?"
canadiandag From: canadiandag Date: July 16th, 2008 11:25 pm (UTC) (Link)
"Yeah," Dag said. "Who's president for you? George Clooney?"
tibberonn From: tibberonn Date: July 16th, 2008 11:27 pm (UTC) (Link)
Tibby frowned in disgust. "I wish. We're stuck with George W. Bush," she said.
canadiandag From: canadiandag Date: July 16th, 2008 11:28 pm (UTC) (Link)
"What?" Dag asked. "George Bush's spoiled son? That's insane." He finished off his muffin.

"I know!" Tibby said. "He's completely incompetent and totally dumb and he didn't even actually win the election. There was all kinds of ballot-tampering and shit. The election rightfully should have gone to Al Gore. Hey, I wonder if there's a way Andy and Julia could prevent that! Maybe when it's the year 2000 for them, they can... I don't know. That probably wouldn't work. Maybe I shouldn't try to mess with history."
canadiandag From: canadiandag Date: July 16th, 2008 11:38 pm (UTC) (Link)
"Yeah," Dag said, "There's a good chance Andy would end up being his own father..."


tibberonn From: tibberonn Date: July 16th, 2008 11:42 pm (UTC) (Link)
Tibby laughed. "Like that episode of Futurama! Oh, I guess Futurama doesn't exist for you yet. It's a TV show. I'll show you some when we're back in 2004. You'll like it."
canadiandag From: canadiandag Date: July 16th, 2008 11:43 pm (UTC) (Link)
Dag grinned. "I can't wait," he said, feeling relieved that Tibby seemed to think he was good enough for her friend.
