She doesn't want to talk about that.

It doesn't matter anyway, she'll like this or she won't.

"All right. Do you need anything? I'm afraid there isn't very much to do around here."

Permalink

If there are books she'd like a book? But she'll be fine either way.

Permalink

"I have some things - I don't know what you like, I'll drop off a selection before people start arriving for the social."

Permalink

Thank you.

She heads back to her room when the prep seems done.

Permalink

Flora's by a few minutes later with a selection of books - the Wisdom again, and a couple of novels of the sort high schoolers read in English class, and a book of poetry.

Permalink

She thanks her again, looks through all of them, and starts on the poetry.

 

 

 

Gosh, poetry.

Permalink

Flora bustles off to receive social-ers.

Permalink

Denice is going to be thoroughly distracted for the next while; she has this poetry book, you see.

Permalink

Three hours later, Flora and a couple of magical girls (they don't look any older than thirty, but that means nothing) arrive at her door. One of the Glories wears mourning dove wings and soft-looking neutral fabrics draped over herself to match, the other has fuzzy bat wings in dark blue and wears a chiton-style outfit, also blue, decorated with spirals of beads.

"Janet, these are Julie and Winona Glory."

Permalink

The poetry has worked wonders on her mood, apparently, though she's still a little shy, not quite making eye contact.

Hi, she sends.

Permalink

"Oh, what a charming spell," says Julie.

Permalink

Yeah, it's great. Do they want to see her other one?

Permalink

"We'd love to," Julie says.

Permalink

The cartoons don't really match her style, but she can do indigo glittery ones - a ball, a balloon, a flyswatter, a lamp to show off the trick with plugging it in.

I made a bike before, she sends. I can't do everything but I can do a lot.

Permalink

"That's so versatile," says Julie. "I have a mostly combat oriented power set and Winona has water powers."

Permalink

That's cool. (She will think about combat oriented powers being a thing later, when panicking over it won't be a disaster.)

Permalink

"Does that outfit cover anything else?" wonders Julie.

Permalink

Just the two - she thinks she hasn't figured out everything the cartoons can do, yet.

Permalink

"I like your wings," says Winona softly. "They don't fly, though, do they?"

Permalink

They don't. That's okay, she doesn't really want to. They're pretty, though, it's okay for things to just be pretty sometimes.

Permalink

"They're lovely," Julie assures her. "Lots of girls don't go for functional wings. It would just mean one of us might need to learn to drive."

Permalink

...She could maybe do functional wings?

(The way she's shrinking back suggests she really doesn't want to, though.)

Permalink

"Nobody's going to make you attach anything to your body you don't want there," says Julie. "Learning to drive isn't a big deal, millions of people do it every day, we've just both happened to skip it up till now."

Permalink

Okay.
