"So, does that mean we can pick our gifts together? Just this once?" asked Sarah.
"That would be a good idea," Whitney replied. "This way, we can save time for the remaining contestants."
The two of them stepped forward, nodding at each other, and simultaneously pulled out two different gifts. Whitney's was pretty tiny, but Sarah's was the largest by far, as tall as her and twice as heavy, and it was lucky her super-strength was up to the task of carrying it back.
Whitney opened hers first, raising an eyebrow. "Oooh, I hope I can adapt this to my dietary regimen. It looks and sounds pretty tasty!"
"What looks and sounds tasty?" asked Backslash, looking over her shoulder.
"The quesedilla recipe I just received. I'd like to cook up health-food-style Tex-Mex sometime, maybe even with the hot sauce that Crazy Dave used on the taco that kicks off the plot of Plants vs. Zombies 2!"
"I'll be the judge of that," said Backslash. "Perhaps you could teach me to cook as well, just in general."
"...You can't cook? Or the canon Shulk couldn't?"
Backslash looked visibly uncomfortable, so he tried changing the subject by calling, "Hey Sarah, what did you get?"
"Well..." The Super had peeled off the wrapping of her gift... and found herself hanging onto a giant cask decorated with a Viking motif. "...Let's just say I'm going to have to reserve a vault somewhere in the Incredibles equivalent of Fort Knox, preferably with a laser grid security system and a sixteen-digit combination lock."
Indeed, she and Lapis were trying to hold off a certain angel in a pink toga, who was reaching for the cask with a maniacal expression and screaming "MINEMINEMINEMINEMINEMINEMINEMINEMINEMINE!"
"CUPID, NO!" cried Lapis. "YOU'VE ALREADY HAD YOUR TURN!!!"
