"Oooh, roller coasters." Ant bounces and skips, and then turns to make sure ey isn't losing anyone.

Everyone follows.

Coney Island is perhaps the least crowded it has ever been. The faint threads of familiar magic coating the area reveal the reason why.

Will glances at Moriarty and Seb.

"Was that really necessary?" he asks, but he's smiling.

Permalink

"Yes," Seb says, smiling back, and looking completely unapologetic. "And it was better than Ira's suggestion."

Permalink

"I was joking."

Permalink

"Eat everyone?"

Permalink

"It seemed expedient?"

Permalink

He laughs.

"It might be hard to find someone to run the rides."

Permalink

"Yeah. Ant pouted."

Permalink

"Yes, and now I want to go on some of these rides that we still have people to run. Come on."

Permalink

"What first?"

Permalink

"Oh!" Moriarty says and darts off.

Permalink

"Give him a moment," Sebastiene says, with the long-suffering of someone used to this.

Permalink

"You should irritate the people on the shooting games, Aunt Seb!"

Permalink

"They might be rigged."

Permalink

"Almost certainly," Sebastiene agrees. "But all the more reason for me to irritate them."

Permalink

All of the carnival games are one street over. There's quite a few target ones for Seb to try, if she's willing to pay their unreasonable prices.

Permalink

Orrrrr she can use that trick she picked up from Jim and make them think she's paid.

Permalink

This is also effective.

This particular stall has a forest theme, with animals popping out from behind fake trees.

The stall owner hands her a rifle and tells her she has five shots.

Permalink

She settles it against her shoulder and-

Yeah, it's rigged, but she had in fact watched the previous participant, and knows how to adapt for that. Result: five for five.

Permalink

The stall holder is obviously a little taken aback, but manages to cheerfully congratulate her and tells her she can take any of the giant stuffed animals. 

Permalink

She decides it's wiser to not to overly irritate them, and selects the giant, ludicrously coloured bird.

Permalink

Moriarty returns, carrying a funnel cake that is larger than his face that is piled with at least two inches of powdered sugar.

Permalink

Seb laughs, and offers the bird. "I won this for you," she says. "Let's try not to explode this one."

Permalink

"Perfect. I knew the living room was missing something."

Permalink

"You mean besides a couch?"
