G’night, sleep tight!

Lizzie gives Victor a reassuring smile. “Just relax. You’ll get through them, I know you will.”

"Thanks…" Victor stares at the ceiling. "This has been a long, long, strange day."

alicemadnessandmemories asked: "Another Victor? Am I going mad, bonkers, off the wall?" Alice twisted a piece of hair around her finger as she spoke.

"To be fair, if you were, you’d be in good company here," Victor replies, very glad that he managed to stop himself before he greeted this Alice with a "darling." That would have made this weird moment even weirder. "I, ah, take it you’re familiar with a different me?"

Alice smiles, “I’m proud of you for being able to make something as beautiful as this.”

Victor’s blushing again. “Thank you — though I have to say, I had good starting material,” he says. Then he smirks. “On the other hand, I did make something that works perfectly and isn’t lethal in a lab that’s known for rather catastrophic Inventions, so I have to be proud of myself there.”

alicemadnessandmemories asked: Alice ran over to Victor and lightly tugged on his sleeve, "Victor, you have to come see this! The park is full of butterflies and it looks amazing!"

"Which park? Where?" Victor’s looking left and right, looking like a puppy that’s just barely following the instruction to stay.

Alice smiles, “What a gentleman…get down.” Alice pulls Victor down and pushes him against a steel bowler. Alice glares and watches a security guard walking around. Alice looks around the room, no cameras, well that explains the guard. Alice quickly dashes behind the guard and knocks his head against a bowler, knocking him out. Alice pulls him over to a corner before signalling to Victor that it was safe.

Alice almost doesn’t have to pull him — the moment she says ‘get down,’ he drops like a rock. He lets Alice push him into a hiding spot, then watches as she takes care of the security guard. He glances around a moment before coming out. “Hopefully he’s the only one,” he comments, lightly nudging the man with his foot. (He may be surreptitiously checking to make sure this one’s still breathing. They don’t need another body on their hands.)

Lizzie sighs. “Victor, try taking deep breaths. Okay?”

Victor tries a couple more times, and finally gets down a decent rhythm. “All right…all right. A little better. I’m getting there.”

Alice giggled happily, “This unbelievable, this is marvellous, this is absolutely wonderful!” Alice hugged him, “I can’t believe you were about to do this, you are amazing!”

Ferdy takes a corner, tilting a little to avoid a building corner. “I can barely believe I was able to do it either,” he admits. “He was kind of an ‘on the fly’ creation. I was trying to help a friend who was stuck in a rather dangerous place, and I found myself in the biology labs, and things just —” He waves a hand by his temple “— sparked!” He pats Ferdy’s head between the feelers. “I’m very proud of him, though.”

Alice smiles, “Ya…my mother was too over protective of me and now thats she’s gone…I kinda miss it.” Alice shook her head, “Anyway, come on, lets go in.”

Victor pats her shoulder comfortingly. “I’m sure she’s still keeping an eye on you, wherever she is now.” Nodding, he holds the door open so she can enter first — both good manners and allowing the person who knows what she’s doing to take the lead.

Alice wraps her hands around Victor’s waist holding on as they take off, Alice laughs loudly as they fly. “Omg…this is….this is amazing! This is spectacular!” Alice looks down as they fly over London, “This feeling is awesome, its beautiful, i love it!”

Victor grins back at her as they glide past some chimneys. “Isn’t it just?! I’ve dreamed of doing this my whole life, and now…” A powerful flap of the wings, and they move higher, soaring over the streets filled with people. “It’s truly incredible to see the city from this high up! Everything looks so different!”

Alice nods, “Ya….I told you I was good, I had a lot of books in my home and a lot of free time, lock picking is like second nature to me. Maybe my mother shouldn’t have locked me up,” she said in a sarcastic tone.

"You are," Victor says, impressed. "And yes she really shouldn’t have…on the other hand, you’ve learned a valuable skill from it, at least, so — benefits?" He’s just going to shrug, then take a peek inside where they’re going."

Lizzie takes Victor’s hand away from his hair, giving it a light squeeze. “Victor, you have to calm down. Alright? You can’t be so stressed. I know, that sounds like a stupid thing to say, especially now, but you have to trust me, and calm down.”

"I’m trying, I’m trying, it’s just not working very well…" Victor’s breathing quickens. "There’s so much up there trying to get out…" He closes his eyes and forces a deep breath. "I — ooh, I would have appreciated a better warning it would be like this…" This up and down in his emotions and thinking is getting tiring.
