|Fayne sat, unmoving in front of her computer as she looked over the advertisement for the fifteenth time. There was no harm in being diligent. She had included a short description of herself, the address of the townhouse she was renting out to a roommate, and of course, the price of rent. "Free-roam Pokémon allowed on property," she typed after a moment's hesitation. She knew some places could be finicky about that kind of thing, wanting Pokemon to stay inside their balls to avoid unnecessary shedding, dirt, and damage. But not here. The landlords either didn't care or liked Pokemon enough to allow them to wander about, so Fayne made sure to mention it. Her deep pink eyes jumped back to the top of the ad, lingering a moment on the bold "Roommate Wanted" lettering before scanning the rest of the page once more.|
Before hitting submit, the novice researcher stood up from behind the desk and walked straight to the kitchen, a rather tiny nook just off the living room that had all the essential cooking utensils: a fridge, stove, oven, and pantry. The counter space was sorely lacking, however. The narrow toaster her parents had bought for her just before the move took up about half the available room. "I'm going cross-eyed staring at that screen," Fayne muttered to herself as she knelt beside an unopened moving box and cut the tape off with a knife from one of the nearby drawers. Without another word, she pulled a small moka pot from inside its cardboard prison and placed it on the stove before flicking on the heat.
After preparing a cup of coffee and unpacking the rest of the box in the kitchen -- mostly as an excuse to procrastinate -- Fayne finally got up enough motivation to return to the computer and finish what she'd started. With a piping hot mug in one hand, Fayne used her free hand to scroll back through the advertisement, glancing over it one final time before hitting submit. The page reloaded with a confirmation notice, letting her know that her ad was now officially out in the world. She just hoped that any potential roommates were normal, regular, not-crazy-in-any-way people. Only time would tell, though.
