<Bella[Future]> "With ours, lately? It has been on how to expand the town. Most of the surrounding land is ours, but since Kintostown is a walled city, it has been a great big," Gesture, "Thing on how exactly we should expand the town, yet preserve it since it has been that way for generations."
<Bella[Future]> "...In a way, I am glad the Nexus grabbed me from the point that it did. A little bit of a break from them is rather nice." Even if she misses having her guard about, mechanical though it is.
<Pat> "Oh, that's been an argument of walled cities for centuries." And Pat means 'for centuries' dating back from the 'present', not the 'future'
* Bella[Future] vaguely mocking, "'Oh we should build outside the wall and then erect a new one'," Beat, "'We should knock down the wall, and rebuild it!'" Beat, "'no no, you are both wrong, the proper way to expand is UP'. Nngh. I swear, having a couple of Sparks on the council is a bad idea." She pinches the bridge of her nose, "Getting them to agree on that is going to take something amazing."
<Pat> "Oh dear. That's got to be something. The first one's how it's usually been done in my world."
<Bella[Future]> "I agree with the first, and I can see the point of the second, and I really ought to knock the fellow in the back of the head who suggested the third." She pinches the bridge of her nose and makes a 'nngh, politics and Sparks' sort of noise.
<Pat> "It's too bad you can't make a Death Ray of Damocles. Set it over really problematic councillor's chairs. before the meeting and just let them Take Note."
<Bella[Future]> ....
<Bella[Future]> "....I rather like the sound of that."
* Pat smiles a little. "Well, if that's plausible, I'm glad."
<Bella[Future]> "OH IT'S CERTAINLY PLAUSIBLE." Mad, Mad little grin. Oh sweet lightning, this solves about half her problems.
<Pat> "Would it be best to have some sort of very obvious...thing that triggers the wires that make it go....right within reach of your chair, or leave the firing mechanism purely up to speculation?" Pat wonders aloud. In for an obol, in for a drachma.
* Bella[Future] is Madness Placing a little, dear god, Pat. "OH YES,YES. MAKE IT VERY OBVIOUS AND EVEN HAVE THE DEATH RAY HAVE A PARTICULARLY OMINOUS HUM WHEN IT IS ACTIVE." Beat, "MAYBE F-SHARP. THAT IS A PARTICULARLY OMINOUS NOTE, WHEN USED PROPERLY."
<Pat> "Oh. Good then."
* Pat doesn't know what F sharp actually is. The octatonic scale won't even be invented for two more centuries.
* Pat assumes she would totally agree about it's ominousness, though.
<Bella[Future]> "I THINK I'LL START ON THE PROTOTYPE NOW," Because her mun's brain is, alas, not a sparky one and starting to turn to mush. "THANK YOU, MY FRIEND, FOR SUCH A WONDERFUL IDEA." She stands, and hugs the Foundling Guard on her way out. Congrats, Pat. You're to blame for the next Sparky Horror she's going to create.
* Pat hugs back, bids her goodnight, and notes that Kintostown is not her jurisdiction.
* Pat does the last part silently, of course.
* Pat will eventually make her way home.

<Bella[Future]> Oh god. Pat, what have you -done-.
<Bella[Future]> She's going to take that advice to heart. XD
<Pat> Apparently, Pat has triggered the creation of a Death Ray of Damocles.
<Bella[Future]> <Bella> FOR SCIENCE. And easier politics. 8D
<Pat> This is the closest pat will ever get to Sparky plotting. "Thing that triggers the wires that make it go"
<Bella[Future]> XD
* Bella[Future] is trying not to laugh too loudly XD
<Pat> "And...what is this new invention mistress." "The Death Ray of Damocles. I was classically inspired" (too true)
<Bella[Future]> XD
* Pat is now known as Rahne42
<Bella[Future]> "...The death ray of .. /what/?" "Oh you know. If any of you get particularly annoying, the clensing power of lightning will solve that problem right there." "....*Gulp*"
<Bella[Future]> Addition to the Foundling Guard File on Bella: Age does little to deter her Madness. (Be thankful she's on our side)
<Bella[Future]> At least, s'my guess XD
* Bella[Future] is now known as Matt
<Rahne42> Something along those lines, yes.
* Matt sticks the log in a private post to format later, since I'll have to edit HTML into Bella's Madness Lines when I post it. It's too funny -not- to share.
