Oh. And post to this, and I will select five related words to you, and you explain what those words mean in relation to you.

'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!))

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....

The Birth of Ding )

OOC: Ding continues to explore Sanctuary residents, meeting Kace, and sitting on Hastur's head as well, and proving that it's almost disturbingly fast in terms of learning by collecting various dirty glasses and putting them in the bar sink upside down. I'm merely cutting it off here to keep the log condensed to one post, chopping them up is a bitch.

Acquisitions:
Ding the Clank
More spare clockwork parts. A lot more.

Things Learned:
Tea with skull and crossbones has powerful effects on Ms. Fennix, in a good mood, she'll construct something benign. In an angry mood--as she'll tell you from experiance--she'll construct something dangerous.
Bella, on Metody: [He pierced his what?]
clockwork_phoenix: (I /meant/ to do that...)
Ding is a Clank constructed by Bella Fennix.
