'To see what would happen' is generally a good reason for a Spark to do anything. Hell, it's this reason that Bella gets along with the Barrayaran Government.

Where this is happening is an open space of Nexus in the very vague vicinity of the Sanctuary. Bella is humming cheerfully as she works on the underside of an engine, as it hangs on some sort of complicated wheel-and-pulley rack she's constructed for just such a purpose.

It's not the more famous sort of humming, but it's a tuneless sort she's making up as she goes, occasionally tapping the engine to the beat of this song with a tool while she thinks.

To anyone who recognizes such, the engine is from a DeLorean, and Bella is going about taking it apart bit by bit to see how it works.

Manufactured trash or not, it's safe to say that this machine's got a few good ideas for her to adapt into her own constructions. Mainly how to reduce the size of her own massive engines into smaller mechanical wonders.

"Ding, hand me the Heterodyne Wrench." Ding makes a cheerful little noise and passes Bella a tool.

A pause. She slides out from under the engine. "We've been over this. This is a hinge clacker. That is the Heterodyne wrench." She points to it, and picks it up herself with a quiet sigh, and slides back under the engine to disassemble another section of it.

((Open post! Anyone can meet her, and individual threads are treated as separate events so we have no clashes between folks, two people can meet her at the same time, and not meet each other through virtue of Weird Nexus Time!))

Mostly for completeness sake:

Frighteningly accurate version of an Aristan Foundling Guard uniform, duplicated by sketching and using Pat's as a reference.

Notable differences: Sized for Bella, no Aristan symbol of allegiance, instead Kintostown's symbol is there, death ray holster instead of knife holster.

Bella's almighty claimed sideroom is one of the larger ones.

It is so, for a reason. Various mechanical objects and devices litter the room in parts, and in various states of completion, and off to one side is the start of a new portal generator. Bella's managed to clean off most of the black soot from where the first one exploded.

One might notice her sheets from her bed hanging outside her window for that same reason, as well as her more beat up clothing.

This is not, however, what she's doing currently.

As life is never dull for the average Spark (combined with, perhaps, a certain subset of Luck), Bella has a predicament.


"Look, I'll give you the wrench for it, how about that?"

Ding. Ding.

Ding the scorpionish-crab-clank is sitting on Bella's workbench, just out of reach, and he's carrying one of her left boots (Yes, she has more than one, the heeled one to go with the dress for that dance comes to mind). And Ding is holding it up triumphantly in all three claws, both arms and the tail. Having the beaming (n) expression. Ding!

"Then what do you want to trade for it?" Apparently, Bella's grown tired of chasing the Clank around for the boot. That little guy's fast when he needs to be.

Of course, into this comes another factor....

Acquisitions:

Various bits of clockwork for jewelry.
Heat Ray arm attachment made out of a space heater, vacuum cleaner parts. (V0.21)
a dark red version of this, and heeled boots to match (even if only one of them's useful to her, she keeps 'em both, just in case)
Several LOL color-change peppers

Addition to OOC notes:

Flag of the House of Kintotech: Red flag, Gold symbol, which is a stylized version of it. (Winged gear, K through middle of it)

ETA: Also: All instances where Bella said 'Wulfenbach Providence', please discreetly retcon into 'Wulfenbach Empire' >_>
