'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!))
