Thanks! She'll see her soon!

"Tomorrow or the day after!" agrees May, and off she rolls.

Permalink

Eee!

She spends the evening in the lake, working out a swimsuit that's pretty enough to let her phase even without wings on; it's loaded with ruffles and trailing streamers studded with tiny mirrors.

Permalink

It's really hard to make a swimsuit work. If she adds a skirt ruffle she can get the cartoons pretty easily; getting phasing takes a lot of work.

Permalink

She does, eventually, stop to take a break and think about specific strategies. Even if she lands right on top of a shark... what happens, actually, if she swims down a ways in the lake and then makes a bunch of cartoon balloons big enough to pull her off her feet if she's on land?

That works fine. The aquatic critters are a little surprised to see her.

Hi, don't mind her she's just doing some science.

 

So that should work fine; if she starts out with just enough balloons that she's not hovering - or like a boat, maybe? If she's a mile up she should be able to dismiss it before it hits anything, right? - then she shouldn't end up in the water at all, actually. If the balloons go with her when May casts her spell, anyway; she'll wear a moderately-ruffly swimsuit anyway just in case they don't.

She can barely sleep for excitement, that night.

May is back the next day around lunchtime.

Here's Dusk!

"Yo. I'm just gonna loiter and double-check things till everybody's asleep, yeah?"

Permalink

Mmhmm!

She'll - she'll paint. It's the only thing that has a snowball's chance of keeping her attention.

Permalink

May diligently checks things.

Dusk paints. She flies around. She makes a trampoline and spends long enough bouncing on it to wear herself out and lays on the grass and makes pearls and things for a while, and then when she's recovered she goes to buy a snack and realizes she should actually bring some food with her and spends some time dealing with that and a little more thinking about if there's anything else she should bring. (Money; she'll keep like $100 of what she's got.) Then she paints some more, until dinnertime.

May is getting dinner at that Avalon seafood place she likes so much.

Permalink

Dusk joins her; she's not chatty though.

Permalink

"Hey. Hungry?"

Permalink

Excited.

Permalink

"It is very exciting. I might take some photographs in case eventually people want to depict me in textbooks."

Permalink

She should!

Permalink

She sort of regrets not getting around to reading about runecasting, now, she's sure this is very impressive and she doesn't know enough to appreciate it properly.

Permalink

"It's actually not as hard as you'd get the impression of from the books, because the books are old, and I have a spreadsheet."

Permalink

Huh. Well, she's still impressed.

Permalink

"Thanks!"

She is going to give Winona such a hug. And boy are they going to have a story for Julie when she gets back.
