Bell Swan Ω "Shell Bell" ([personal profile] she_sells_seashells) wrote2013-02-08 12:18 am

on top of the world

Shell Bell is dancing on literal air when they leave Milliways.

Stella is an even more fortuitous find than Amariah was, and Amariah was amazing. Stella has given her everything she needs. Stella is a Space Empress and Shell Bell is going to follow right after her, probably with slightly less Space.

The fact that Shell Bell has to torture her girlfriend to accomplish anything in this department is a mood dampener, but she went and had a look at the memories of those "tastes" Stella provided and - well. They're bordered pale, even the big one. She's spooked about looking any closer; she managed to neglect to ask Stella before she went back to her Empire if looking at pain-related thoughts hurts. She looked at the square-sized memory and it was... too close to call. Stella might not even know the answer - mental opacity could easily interact somehow with mindreading. Stella might be protected against painful reading where Shell Bell, with only a wished-for imitation, might not.

But Sherlock seems content, and so -

"We're gonna take over the wo-orld, we're gonna take over the world, we're gonna take over the wooooorld," Bell sings, dancing into the house from the bar. (She can dance now. She is not in the least danger of tripping, wouldn't be even if her feet were touching the ground, and if she does anyway, she will float.)
sicaria: Grinning, perhaps smugly. (⑴ I always know)

Sherlock giggles and chases after her with hugs.
sicaria: Grinning. (⑵ tell me you saw that)

[personal profile] sicaria 2013-02-08 04:48 pm (UTC)(link)
Still giggling, she kisses Bell's cheek.

"We most certainly are. It will be delightful. I love you."
sicaria: Reaching for something. (⑽ just a touch)

"Well," she says.

"We could find Atlantis. Or, somewhat likelier, found it."
sicaria: Sitting on a log. (⑻ who sits by herself)

"We could install your counterpart's anti-violence measures directly over the planet," she says. "Or better ones. And then start solving problems and deal with resistance as it occurs. Whatever we do, it would be best to do it fast, while the Capitol is still headless."
sicaria: Grinning. (⑵ tell me you saw that)

[personal profile] sicaria 2013-02-08 05:45 pm (UTC)(link)
[A handy talent,] she says, kissing back.
sicaria: In profile, looking down. (⑾ time to go home)

[personal profile] sicaria 2013-02-08 06:11 pm (UTC)(link)
[I'm sorry,] she says, although she's not sure that's the right thing.
sicaria: Dressed up. (⑺ primarily innocence)

[personal profile] sicaria 2013-02-08 07:07 pm (UTC)(link)
[When you return,] says Sherlock, [I believe I will give you a hug.]
sicaria: Reaching for something. (⑽ just a touch)

[personal profile] sicaria 2013-02-08 07:22 pm (UTC)(link)
Hugs. Definitely hugs.
sicaria: Grinning, perhaps smugly. (⑴ I always know)

[personal profile] sicaria 2013-02-08 07:36 pm (UTC)(link)
"Happily," she says.
sicaria: Looking up, thoughtful. (⑼ a brief and thoughtful moment)

[personal profile] sicaria 2013-02-08 07:46 pm (UTC)(link)
"Thirteen," says Sherlock. "Interesting."
sicaria: Reaching for something. (⑽ just a touch)

[personal profile] sicaria 2013-02-08 07:52 pm (UTC)(link)
"Should we go and investigate, do you think?"
sicaria: Dressed up. (⑺ primarily innocence)

[personal profile] sicaria 2013-02-08 07:57 pm (UTC)(link)
"I think he will be fine with being brought along later."
