Raven had returned to Glacia after leaving the dance, and had retreated to her rooms. She wasn't sulking. Well, not much, but her feelings had been hurt and it still stung. She'd controlled her temper, at least -- she'd felt it trying to slip free of her control, much stronger than it should have been, which was worrisome. Being angry was one thing, but unleashing carelessly was another thing entirely. But while she kept Wrath in check, Envy was doing its best to twist her emotions.

Philia sensed her downcast mood and jumped up on the bed and lay her head in Raven's lap. Raven buried her fingers in the dog's soft fur and tried to smile down at her, but her heart really wasn't in it.

Tap tap.

Karla...really, really needed to have a conversation with Raven. A long one, filled with lots of 'I'm not sure you're okay's and 'I'm getting worried's and 'people's shields are not for you to ignore's.

You know, little things like that.

Karla slipping into the room, moving to sit on down on one of the chairs near the bed. "Have you been here since Valentine's Day?"

All three days?

[Heading home, back in an hour!]

Karla was going to shift the conversation a bit away from that idea, yes.

"Drooling," she replied. "And sticking anything she can get her hands on into her mouth. She's also started rolling a little bit, which makes changing her diaper all sorts of interesting. Morton made the mistake of turning away to toss her diaper in the trash and she nearly launched herself off the changing table. Fortunately, he caught her before she could get airborn."

With Craft, yes, but she'd been caught. And Morton had summoned assistance to take Kayla to her parents and promptly went to drink away the thought of nearly letting his niece topple.

Yeah, but her choice in the father hadn't really improved. Karla was almost tempted to suggest Julian, because if anyone was baby-crazy in the estate, it was him, but with the something lurking in Raven's mind and the increasingly unsettling behavior, a baby wasn't something that Karla was going to encourage.

One day, she was certain her friend would make an excellent mother. But today was not that day. And probably wouldn't be, at least for the foreseeable future.

"We're not entirely certain when she'll be developing wings," Karla said. "Warren didn't get his until he was seven. If the children we met at Fandom were anything to go by, theirs will come sooner than that, but we don't know how much sooner."

See? This was the Raven Karla knew and loved. Funny, warm, caring, concerned. This was the sister of her heart. Talking to her now made it almost hard to believe that there was something grievously wrong with her. "Warren and I spent Valentine's Day sleeping," Karla said, pausing a moment for a rapturous smile. Oh good lord, the sleeping. "On expensive sheets and for as long as we wanted to. And we're planning a bi-weekly date where we do something similar."

But, if that wasn't the opening for the Talk they needed to have, Karla wasn't sure what was.

"I hear your Valentine's Day was not nearly so restful."

Probably because of an evil and demonic influence?

"I think we should anyway," Karla said, gentle but unwilling to budge on that. "I'll insist on it, if that's what it takes."

Karla's eyebrow suggested she agreed with the narrative.

"Really?" she said. "Why don't you tell me what happened? Maybe we can figure something out."

"The Valentine's Day dance?" Karla pressed. "The one that isn't actually open to alumni? Only students and chaperons?"

Of which Raven was neither?

Important details.

"And how did you try to thank him?" Karla asked, keeping her voice calm and reasonable. "Shake his hand? Give him a hug? A high-five maybe?"

glacial_queen: (Pursed Lips)
From: [personal profile] glacial_queen
Yep. That eyebrow just stayed right up there, chilling at her hairline.

"No, I'm not here to tell you to stay away from him," she countered. Not exactly, anyway. "But we are going to talk about this. You've crossed some lines, Raven. And I can't just let that go. Especially since you don't even know you've crossed them and that's even worse. There's something wrong, Raven. We both know it, even if you don't want to admit it."

[LJ NEVER SENT ME A NOTIF! *shakes fist* IT WASN'T UNTIL I SAW CARMILLA PINGING THAT I EVEN THOUGHT TO CHECK.]

"How about when you hurt him?" Karla asked, wishing she'd had the forethought to bring tea. She could use about a gallon of it right now. And maybe something alcoholic to add to it. "Or did you not even notice that? Even though you're an empath."

[ZERO STARS]

"You shoved your way through his shields," Karla said softly. "How do you think that made him feel, Raven?"

"There's pollen on the island now? Bloody Hell, Raven!" Yeah, Jono hadn't mentioned that fact! Karla flung herself out of the chair and started pacing, all-but grinding her teeth together. "So, it's a pollen week. And Jono has his shields up and extra-reinforced to keep him from feeling the effects. Because, among other things, he is at a dance, filled with under-aged children, all of whom Jono feels responsible for because you know as well as I do how seriously he takes his duties as a teacher?"

She glared at Raven to make sure she was following along.

"And then you show up, out of nowhere to a dance you shouldn't even be at, and just bulldoze your way through his shields to run nails down his back?"

In a minute, Karla was going to have to start paying Arthur for overuse of italics.

"And now you're telling me that you can't see how that was wrong?" she demanded. "You trespassed his mental shields, which is something that fucks with him to this day as you very well know. You did it in front of students, at a function where he was acting in his capacity as a teacher. Mother Night, Raven, you did the equivalent of shoving your hand down the front of his pants, uninvited, and you know it!"
