"Hmph. Worth a try. Can you make the wings white mother-of-pearl? Keep the outlines."

"Maybe? They still have to be feathers to fly... do you have any I can look at?"

"I just want the effect, not the actual material." He rummages around in his desk for a shell. "Here, like this."

She holds it so she can look at it in starscape and tries it. "- oh, it loves that."

Permalink

He smiles. "Do the same to your sandals and the white parts of the belt."

"That's good too," she says when she has.

"If you change any of your colors or materials in the future, do be sure to keep everything consistent. It'll hurt you otherwise, even if the change is a good idea."

"I'll remember. Thank you."

"We don't have time to give you a proper cloak, not that you'll need it in summer, but -" he pulls another book off the shelf - "you should probably be alright with something like this, lined in fur, in the same material as the dress." The book is in Greek, it's open to an illustration of a woman in a chlamys

"Will that be warm enough? Or should I just make it longer if it's really cold?"

Permalink

"Length shouldn't a problem. Sleeves will be trickier. If you're in the navy, you must work with other magical girls, ask what they do. The grecian theme is quite popular these days." 

Permalink

"Okay."

Permalink

"Good luck, Miss Arden. I hope your voyage is entirely uneventful." 

Permalink

"Thanks, I hope so too."

And Mowett is waiting to collect her. Before she goes, Mr. Peale hands her a sheaf of his sketches - "for reference." His next client is waiting in the foyer; she doesn't seem to be magical at all. 

Permalink

Rebecca blinks at her, but follows Mowett without asking.

Permalink

"You look lovely, miss, if you don't mind my saying so." 

Permalink

"Thank you."

Permalink

"Mr. Peale's very good. And a real artist, too." 

Permalink

"Most of his ideas worked! I have to memorize all this now though. Maybe I'll write it down."

Permalink

"You can get paper and ink off Coombe, if you do." 

Soon enough, they're back aboard the Clarence

Permalink

Rebecca looks for Coombe to ask for paper and ink.

Permalink

Coombe is the ship's schoolmaster! He wants to know if Rebecca can write. (His tone suggests he would be terribly surprised).

Permalink

"I can, though I don't think my penmanship is good."

Permalink

"Just see you return the pen."
