Okay there's no need to be SMUG.

 

Homura retreats to her room before Haru can say something self congratulatory or worse, something Sincere.

Permalink

She has strange, muddled dreams that involve flying or being underwater or both, and sharks and flutes and shadows -

- and Madoka's black and red dress and the way the skirts fluttered up around her knees, and Madoka  cradling Homura against her chest and the strength of Madoka's arms holding her in place - 

 

But mostly the dream is just about sharks. Obviously.

Homura goes to school, eager to confirm that Madoka is still alive.

Permalink

Still alive and in class! She's hanging out with one of her friends; her mood seems better than it's been the last little bit.

Permalink

Oh good. Homura is relieved to see Madoka act like herself again. She is not jealous of Madoka's friend even a little bit.

Homura watches Madoka's hands move about as she talks and thinks about how strong she is waits for class to start.

Madoka pairs off with Homura during gym class.

"How're you doing?"

Permalink

She dips her head. Fine. "I have contemplated how I might join you and be useful. I do not know how to fight. Are there places to train?"

Permalink

Frown. "Yeah, I guess..."

Permalink

"Are particular weapons more effective than others?"

Permalink

"I can only do the one thing. It's - my magic weapon. I think normal weapons aren't really effective at all..."

Permalink

"If I tried to blow up that shark, nothing would happen?"

Permalink

"Haven't run tests, but I think it'd be 'significantly less than what you're expecting, maybe nothing'..."

Permalink

Permalink

"...I could maybe alter a weapon so it's magical..."

Permalink

She relaxes slightly. "You should attempt it."

Permalink

"Okay. I'd need a weapon, but a baseball bat's easy to get..."

Permalink

"That will do for now. I will search for something better."

Permalink

"Okay. Thanks."

Homura puts in lots of effort in gym class today. She might not actually manage to be helpful on Madoka's witch-hunting excursions, but she would at least like to avoid slowing her down.

(...unless that would make Madoka inclined to pick her up and carry her everywhere. Things To Consider.)

Permalink

Madoka keeps an eye on Homura's health, but is also content to just chatter about non-witch stuff all class.

Permalink

Sometimes Homura even acknowledges the chatter. 

Permalink

That delights Madoka!

Permalink

After school ends, Homura looks levelly at Madoka and waits for her to indicate what she plans to do.

Permalink

"I guess we should go do - magic tests or something?"

Permalink

"Mn. Do you know a place?"
