here goes

Bella schedules an appointment at Stanford. She breezes through sixteen hours of motorcycle class, mostly by demonstrating that the instructor is redundant and wouldn't he rather teach her exotic motorcycle tricks and then just mark her as passing the course? She plays in a soccer game against a Port Angeles high school and wins. She starts driving her bike to school, and she names it Tegu after a lizard of similar coloring, because it needed a name.

On Friday evening she's due to fly out, crash in a Stanford grad student's house overnight, interview on Saturday, and fly home that evening. She bikes for the airport, black leather gold-studded saddlebags over Tegu's back wheel carrying her luggage.

Alice, having no demands on his time that he can't blow off for this, flies invisibly overhead.
edgeofyourseat: Grinning, friendly. (⑵ extraordinarily nice)

[personal profile] edgeofyourseat 2012-10-02 02:25 am (UTC)(link)
[Yup.]

Because that is what he would rather be doing. And also she looks really good on that thing.

The second option sounds way more fun!

[Might as well find out if I can do that, right?]
edgeofyourseat: Grinning, maybe licking lips. (⑴ you say bark I say bite)

[personal profile] edgeofyourseat 2012-10-02 08:34 pm (UTC)(link)
[Yup.]

His necklace is getting so long that 'necklace' is really no longer the word.
edgeofyourseat: Dancing wildly, grinning. (⑹ ride it where I like)

Alice envisions this.

[Yeah, that'd work,] he concludes. He just has his looped a ridiculous number of times around his neck, but Bella's configuration sounds much more stable. Of course. Because she's Bella.

[Sounds like a plan. And when that gets full we can make more of 'em.]

Because Alice is not going to stop producing coins anytime soon, and he produces a lot of them, especially on days when he doesn't have much else to do.
edgeofyourseat: Grinning, maybe licking lips. (⑴ you say bark I say bite)

[personal profile] edgeofyourseat 2012-10-02 08:57 pm (UTC)(link)
[What the fuck could you possibly need that much magic for?]

Not that he doesn't enjoy the thought of having to make even more.
edgeofyourseat: Smiling, conspiratorial or challenging. (⑷ wanna try?)

[personal profile] edgeofyourseat 2012-10-02 09:01 pm (UTC)(link)
[Betcha I could make a star.]

He's been trying, but he hasn't been trying very hard. Pain at the hex level is distractingly sexy.
edgeofyourseat: Grinning, maybe licking lips. (⑴ you say bark I say bite)

[personal profile] edgeofyourseat 2012-10-02 09:03 pm (UTC)(link)
[That is because you are smart,] Alice says cheerfully.
edgeofyourseat: Hand to back of head, uncertain. (⑾ whatcha doin' tonight)

[personal profile] edgeofyourseat 2012-10-02 09:07 pm (UTC)(link)
[There's more where those came from,] Alice points out. Death doesn't bother him the way it bothers her. He thinks it would be pretty awesome if she did manage to get rid of it, but he's not going to complain if she doesn't, or if it takes a while.
edgeofyourseat: Confused or hurt. (⑿ never been born at all)

[personal profile] edgeofyourseat 2012-10-02 09:23 pm (UTC)(link)
[I'd be fucking wrecked if you died,] he says. His voice is calm, casual; the emotions behind it are anything but. [So?]

He would suffer a lot, but suffering is not exactly new and different for him. And there are seven billion more people on the planet, and odds are there's at least one or two more that he could love this much. If he stuck around long enough to find them.
edgeofyourseat: Sarcastic or disbelieving. (⑺ back into your place)

[personal profile] edgeofyourseat 2012-10-02 09:37 pm (UTC)(link)
[I don't think you're getting this,] Alice says dryly.

People, as individuals, aren't replaceable. Everyone is exactly themselves. The loss of a person is a loss. But except in a very few cases, it's not a loss that Alice personally cares about, and even for those—even for the one he knows would completely take him apart—he doesn't think they are irreplaceable in the sense that the world becomes a permanently worse place every time someone leaves it. It just keeps on being the world, with these people instead of those ones.
edgeofyourseat: Explaining or agreeing. (⑼ gotta be cool)

[personal profile] edgeofyourseat 2012-10-02 09:51 pm (UTC)(link)
[Well, yeah,] says Alice. [And that's awesome. It just doesn't piss me off that a bunch of people are dying right now who wouldn't be if you'd fixed it already.]
