Logan, Aegis and Kern wandered into the lounge. Logan's hair looked even more dishevelled than usual. The sounds of an ongoing argument wafted in from the corridor.
"... look, I was tired, ok?" said Logan, looking at Kern irritably.
"If you're expecting any sympathy from me, think again," said Kern. "No one forced you to go to Rudi's last night, let alone drink that many beers. And now we're late for the party, thanks to you."
Logan didn't reply - his partner's nagging only making his hangover worse - and made a beeline for the drinks table. Hair of the dog, and all that...
Aegis and Kern looked around for any Agents they knew, soon after joined by Logan, who had appropriated several drinks. Logan thought he recognised the Andalite - Nume's partner, right? - but he didn't recall meeting most of the other agents present.
The trio of ESAS agents tried to catch the attention of some nearby agents and strike up a conversation.

Cali was knocked off balance by Kyle and Kevin's guilty darting through the crowd. "What did you two do?" he shouted after them. They giggled evilly. He turned to find out what kind of damage control ... more
"Oof!" Cadmar was about so say something rude to whoever ran into her, but stopped when she saw it was Cali. "Cali! Hi!" She wrapped him in a hug. "It's so good to see you! I was thinking you'd ran... more
