Philia had been begging for a walk, so Raven had taken her dog out into the gardens. Without a leash and collar, of course, because after what Philia had been through, she didn't ever want her to be restrained again. And Philia certainly wasn't vicious. She was still prone to hide from strangers, though she'd slowly warmed to people she'd spent more time with.

Raven took a seat on a bench, lost in thought, as Philia romped about. Nightmares about the future still plagued her rest, though they'd lessened a little since her talk with Hannibal and better understanding the reason behind them. That hadn't necessarily meant she'd actually dealt with it. Mostly she tried to keep herself busy and distracted, which had been recently helped along by Karla giving her responsibility over all the orphanages in Glacia. She'd been planning out visits to each of them so she could inspect the facilities and see that they were safe and clean and the children healthy. Any place that didn't meet her standards would be swiftly put to right.

But she couldn't keep busy all the time, much as she tried, and right now she found herself in need of a new distraction. Maybe she'd visit Fandom for a couple of days. Karla was always telling her to take more breaks, after all, and even if it was August there, that didn't mean something bad was going to happen. Right?


[Establishy but open for anyone in Glacia or texts or phone calls.]

It was mid-spring now, the air warming and the earth waking up, so Karla was spending a great deal of time outside in the gardens, Nemit perched on her shoulder and trilling a bit in her ear while Karla worked the land, or else just sat somewhere and focused on it.

"Kiss kiss," she said quietly, coming up on Raven and Philia. Philia got a quick scritch behind the ears and Nemit bumbled down to play with her--mostly by doing an impression of a drunken bumblebee around Philia's head. Raven got a smile and a nod towards the bench. Would Raven mind if Karla sat? Or would she prefer to be left to meditate?

[In a cabin in Tenneesee, so it will be the most slowest of slowplays!]

"Nope," Karla said, sitting down next to Raven and immediately leaning to rest her head on her friend's shoulder. "My moontime's coming, so I was just out releasing some excess energy from my Jewel into the ground. You know, taking the glorious opportunity to do nothing."

"Can you imagine? We'd all be in college right now. Could you picture us taking courses and exams for four years? Trying to figure out what we wanted to be when we 'grew up'?"

Imagining it, she just shook her head. What would she have been, had she been a normal girl?

"He's been texting me off and on since he got there," Karla confirmed. "More off than on, but that's the time difference for you."

Things in his world weren't going so well, but Karla saw no reason to worry Raven with those details. It didn't matter much, right? He'd be leaving his New York in just a few Kaeleeran days and they wouldn't have to worry about it any more.

"Maybe when he gets home, we'll throw a party or something. Our birthdays are in a few days, Jono's Fandom birthday wasn't that long ago, and I bet Cora and Nyles would love some time in Fandom."

"I was thinking maybe more Fast Eddie's?" Karla said. "Imagine their faces when they see an arcade."

Though if Hannibal wanted to cater, Karla would be only too happy to let him. Out of the kindness of her heart, of course.

"So, which should I ask you about? How your meetings with him are going, or an update on the orphanages?"

"My favorite part of that is how you literally will just show up in a puff of smoke and demand to be given a tour," Karla said, her smile not particularly nice. But then, if there were places taking care of children that weren't up to snuff, they deserved what they got.

And for all of Raven's sweet demeanor and gentle exterior, if she found signs that not all was well, she'd have no problem tearing into them. It would be glorious.

"Enh, not too bad." Dinah grinned and rolled a superball for Camille. "Just hanging out, killing time until a surveillance job. What's up in Glacia?"

"You are? That's so awesome!" Dinah patted Camille and asked, "So what's that going to involve? And jeez, huge job, I'm thinking."

"You'll be good at that," Dinah decided. She hummed absently. "Does Glacia even have an adoption program, for all those kids who lost their parents during the war?"

"Cool." Dinah got up to get a snack, and said, "You let me know if you need anything on that, okay? Momoko's been talking about maybe taking a trip back to see you guys, and Glacia, in a few weeks."

"Awww, you miss me?" Dinah grinned. "Maybe we'll drag Priestly along too, it's been a while since he visited, and he's living in New Gotham now, so. Well, assuming he's not having to do something for school."

"That sounds like a fabulous idea. With extra cake. Different cake for each of us, and sharing the taste with him." Dinah grinned. "So when's Warren due back, and how's everything else there?"

"Okay, then when you guys have the party, gimme a call. I'll grab other people and drag them there too. Oh hey, how old *is* Jono now?"
