"...and we'll be checking for Lichtenberg figures, too," Hank was saying. "Especially at the contact points where you were electrocuted." He cocked his head to study Jack. "I must say, you don't smell particularly singed at the moment. Electrocution can be tricky, how are you feeling?"

Emma sighed, pinching the bridge of her nose from her perch on one of the counters in Hank's lab space. It was greatly upgraded from the last time Jack had been down there, with bright lights, clean and painted walls, and newer equipment. Hank himself was greatly improved as well, the large man seeming more focused than usual as he moved about his lab, making notes on a chart with Jack's name at the top.

"Hank, should I be worried that somehow you already have a chart for my boyfriend? We've talked about the 'no testing on Emma's friends' lately, right?"

Hank just grinned, giving his partner-in-crime a noogie as he walked past her. "Stop fussing, Emma. It's from when he first came down here to transform. I documented the process, so he'd have something to compare against later. Don't worry, it's not like I kept any DNA."

He turned his large yellow eyes back to Jack. "...are we sure I can't keep any DNA from you?"

HANK, NO.

"I'm absolutely certain," Jack said. He folded his arms against his bare chest, trying to sound more comfortable than he felt. He wasn't afraid of Hank or anything ridiculous like that, it was just ... an unusual situation. Yes. "Nothing against you, I'm just selective about who gets to see my DNA."

"No, not at all," Jack assured him, chuckling at 'princess bossy-pants.' "I was a bit sore the first day, but I've felt fine since."

"I don't know what a Lichtenberg is, but I haven't noticed anything unusual," Jack told him. "Um ... my vision's been getting a bit blurry when I've been reading a lot, but it was midterms so that was going to happen anyhow."

Curiously, he tilted his head at Hank. "You heal too?"

"You're also excellent at calling the pizza place," Jack said hopefully. "I'd rather have that than Twinkies."

Jack shook his head, but reluctantly. "I -- haven't been feeling up to running," he admitted. "But I don't think anything stayed in there. The bullet sort of glanced off. And now I'm feeling rather ridiculously lucky, I have to say."

He added, "I'll bring down a pizza once you let me go. Payment for services rendered."

Jack shook his head. "She finds everything out eventually anyhow," he said. "I've been having more bad dreams than usual, but nothing I can't handle. I just wish my friends had happier lives."

Jack couldn't completely hide his pride at being considered good for someone. Not that he didn't know it, but it was always nice to hear.

"It's a hard place sometimes," he said. "But knowing other people who have gone through some of the same things -- it's hard to say how much that can mean for us. Especially for people like Emma, where home's less than tolerant."

Jack nodded his approval. "Let me know if you ever need help with that. Though I was leaning toward causing a tragic accident, myself."
