There's a bit more room if they move the couch, but, yeah...

This one, which would need at least two people to assemble with any speed and looks kind of like a science fiction portal generator, seems to fit the majority of their requirements, but there's also a few others.

Permalink

Jenn considers it - what would they need to power it?

Permalink

She's pretty sure just a wall outlet? Or a big battery, if the power's unreliable, but the past Bina's hoarded a bunch of car batteries and stuff so they have those.

Permalink

This seems like a good option then. She's pretty sure of their ability to construct it.

Permalink

Yeah. Same.

Permalink

Alright then. Bed time?

Permalink

"Night!" she says, to Jenn, to Ant, to Elizabeth (to the thing in her hand that may or may not be listening, and to a second as long as the universe).

Permalink

Jenn is pretty determined to give Bina a hug before they go to bed.

Permalink

She'll accept a hug!

Permalink

"We've got this," Jenn says. "We'll keep people safe."

(There's more than one meaning there, a statement that she has no intention of deferring to Elizabeth.)

Permalink

"Yeah. I just... It's a lot. And I keep worrying, that this is - bigger. Than anything I've ever done. And I tend to... Kind of screw up a lot. Especially when stuff's important."

Permalink

Squeeze. "You're doing great. You've saved me at least three times by my count."

Permalink

She leans into the hug. "I just - keep spinning in my head. I know it's stupid. It always is..."

Permalink

"It sounds very relatable. Very human. We all get caught up sometimes."

Permalink

"Feels worse. The way my brain does it." She laughs, weakly. "I'm going to have so much to talk to my therapist about when this's done..."

Permalink

"You and me both."

Permalink

"Hopefully they'll believe us..."

Permalink

"Hopefully, yeah." Another squeeze. "Sleep well, huh?"

Permalink

Squeeze. "You too."

She doesn't super want to sleep alone right now.

But that'd be really super awkward to ask of Jenn.

Permalink

Jenn watches her for a moment. "-Want some company?"

Permalink

"...Yeah."

Permalink

"Okay then."

To bed then?

Permalink

To bed, yeah.

(Sleeping next to someone who isn't Lash when she's not exhausted and injured is really awkward and Bina has a crush probably and AAHHHHHH why did she agree what if there is cuddling does she want cuddling she thinks she wants cuddling but she's barely known Jenn that long, really - )

Permalink

Jenn leaves the decision on whether they're actually cuddling to Bina, but she's definitely positioned herself such that cuddling seems to be welcome.

Permalink

She'll kind of inch over after a bit.
