inside

Shell and Bell have worked out (well, Bell has worked out and Shell has tentatively commented on) a merging protocol that they think will work for them.

Shell's memories are going to be perfectly accessible, but they will not come up automatically in response to stimuli unless the resulting Shell Bell is expressly open to it. They will keep Shell's hard-earned tolerance to pain, insofar as that's separable (Shell is quite sure that she'd be able to make a pentagon if another situation as important as getting ahold of Sherlock to mint Juliet came up). All of Shell's insights about Sherlock's importance stay. Her itchy discomfort with Sherlock not getting her importance will be folded into Bell's resignation to same. The merged Shell Bell will be comfortable referring to either past in the first or third person, but will default to using "I" for Bell and "she" for Shell. She'll torch, but that's the only supernatural property Shell's bringing to the merger; she'll retain all Bell's magic. Shell looks a little older, but not much; they'll go with that, as they think torching probably conflicts with actually aging and they don't think twenty is the ideal place to sit forever and whatever Shell is supposed to be is closer. They are omitting the nightmares, good riddance.

"Last minute questions, comments, reasons to expect this to be a bad idea in some way?" Bell asks.

Shell shakes her head. She is looking forward to not being a separate person anymore.
sicaria: Looking up, thoughtful. (⑼ a brief and thoughtful moment)

Sherlock voices no objections, nor does she think any.
she_sells_seashells: (k ~ chilly)

Bell tries a hex. This is apparently not a job for a hex.

It is not a job for a star.

There are two evils left, from when Sherlock made evils.

She frowns, and rereads all the wish parameters from where she wrote them down for Shell to look at, and finally she touches one of the remaining, declawed evils and wishes.

There were two.

Now there is one.
sicaria: Reaching for something. (⑽ just a touch)

[personal profile] sicaria 2013-03-09 11:57 pm (UTC)(link)
Now there is one, indeed.

Sherlock hugs her.
she_sells_seashells: engaged (c ~ engaged)

[personal profile] she_sells_seashells 2013-03-10 12:04 am (UTC)(link)
"Hi," says Shell Bell with a very Shellish sigh.
sicaria: Smiling slightly. (⑸ smiling as she falls)

[personal profile] sicaria 2013-03-10 12:21 am (UTC)(link)
"I love you," says Sherlock.
she_sells_seashells: maybe (Default)

[personal profile] she_sells_seashells 2013-03-10 01:45 am (UTC)(link)
"I love you," says Shell Bell. "Well. Now I'm all neatened up - Tony, can you try for a door so I can write some extremely urgent notes in the Bellbook?"

ferratus: At a distance, walking. (⑻ step inside)

"Yep!"

He opens a door.

And lo, Milliways.
she_sells_seashells: (j ~ unsettled)

- context.

Bell concludes her outline of the facts and the narrative. She closes the book.
sicaria: In profile, looking down. (⑾ time to go home)

[personal profile] sicaria 2013-03-10 01:08 pm (UTC)(link)
Sherlock hugs her again.
she_sells_seashells: tricky (g ~ tricky)

[personal profile] she_sells_seashells 2013-03-10 04:58 pm (UTC)(link)
Hugs!

"Golden resurrected somebody. Since she's not here right now to handle it herself, I should probably see if I can still open the door to Downside and fetch him out for her."
she_sells_seashells: bitey (e ~ bitey)

Downstairs.

"- Ah, I just completely forgot about holding the door for the Joker when I saw you," Shell Bell says ruefully. "I was going to just see if the door would go there, but now I guess I'll have to actually hold it and brainphone him that I'm back and let him out."

She pulls open the door. It's Atlantis. She closes the door, closes her eyes, focuses -
gunpowdergelatine: Grinning. (♠3/I'm all love)

[personal profile] gunpowdergelatine 2013-03-10 07:13 pm (UTC)(link)
[It's fine,] he says cheerfully. [I had a little adventure.]
gunpowdergelatine: Partial face, one eye and one hand visible. Sultry. (♥9/knows what she wants to be)

[personal profile] gunpowdergelatine 2013-03-10 07:15 pm (UTC)(link)
[Yep! Got him right here.]

"Doorstop's back," he says aloud.
temporal_affairs: (f ~ run that by me again)

[personal profile] temporal_affairs 2013-03-10 07:23 pm (UTC)(link)
"What happened? Shouldn't any amount of time she spent in Milliways or wherever be nothing on this end?" asks Timer.
gunpowdergelatine: Smirking faintly, touching thumb to lips. (♣5/don't want the devil to)

[personal profile] gunpowdergelatine 2013-03-10 07:26 pm (UTC)(link)
[I'll ask.]

"Mm, she's not exactly the same doorstop," he explains. "She found the resurrected one and they got back together. Now she wants to know if you wanna do the same thing with Nathan."
temporal_affairs: (h ~ sideeyeing that)

[personal profile] temporal_affairs 2013-03-10 07:27 pm (UTC)(link)
"...Back together, like...?"
gunpowdergelatine: Smiling faintly, touching finger to lips. (♠4/what he used to make it talk)

[personal profile] gunpowdergelatine 2013-03-10 07:29 pm (UTC)(link)
He presses his hands together, pulls them apart. "They split..." together again, "they merge."
temporal_affairs: (k ~ oh dear lord)

[personal profile] temporal_affairs 2013-03-10 07:32 pm (UTC)(link)
"...Well, there's a thought, but while I'd welcome being a vampire again and miss Kerron quite a bit and have no strong objections to resuming being stuck exclusively on you, I don't think Nathan's going to want to share an identity with a version of him who -" Airquotes! - "'cheated on you'."
