"I understand. Better not to lose them at all." Alia said with a soft smile, "So take care of yourself ya butterfly loving geek~."

She laughs a bit, then smiled and nods, rubbing her shoulder a bit nervously.

"Yeah, I worry about them sometimes, but they come home alright every time. I shouldn’t, but I guess they’ve just sorta grown on me." She said with a soft sigh, "They can be dangerous people at times all on their own, so i suppose monsters and other things they’re told to hunt would have a hard time already getting to them…"

Alia smiled thankfully and adds a bit of cream to her tea, then two big spoonfuls of sugar once Victor’s done with it.

"Honestly, I’ve still be rather ruffled about it, but before I found out, I was pretty calm and happy." She said with a grin, "I’ve been working on organs, but my issue is that I’m not entirely sure if a body would accept it. Cause I know that there are always a few issues with finding organ donors who’ll give replacements, so maybe if I get this right, people won’t have to worry about it. It’s difficult though. While I can clearly see my own limbs, I can’t with organs. It’s why my tongue and eyes were rather difficult, and I still taste things a bit duller than normal…”

She sipped her tea, then sighed contently, smiling.

"But honestly… At the end of the day, I go to bed smiling. That’s what really matters, huh..?"

"I will do my best," Victor promises, smiling back at her. "It helps that I don’t think I’m as clumsy as I was back at home. Good evidence that most of it was nerves over everything expected of me, no?"

Victor reaches over and gives her shoulder a squeeze as he pushes over the sugar bowl, taking the cream for his own cup. “It’s all right to worry — I do it all the time,” he assures her. “They’re your friends — of course you’re going to be anxious about their welfare. But from everything you’ve told me, I think they’re going to be just fine.”

"You mean like hearts and lungs and such?" he asks, taking a sip of his own tea. "That must be very complicated…and yes, you’ve mentioned your issues with your eye before. Still, if you could pull it off, and figure out the best way to connect it up to organic parts, it would be quite the boon to hospitals, I’m sure! Transplants are still a tricky business, even with finding out that some people’s blood just doesn’t mix properly…" He bites his lip, then nods. "I wish you all the best of luck with that. If anyone could pull such a feat off, I’m sure it would be you."

He grins back at her. “It is. I’m very glad to hear that. More people need to end each day with a smile.”

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 giggles, noticing the butterfly on his head. She whispers, “Victor, you have one on your head.”

"I — what?" Automatically Victor reaches up to feel, which causes the butterfly to flutter off into his line of sight. "Oh! I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to scare you," he apologizes to the little creature, cupping it gently in his hands for a moment. "You’re very pretty."

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 stared at the hanky, she didn’t know what to say or what to do.

Victor’s not sure either — he’s said everything he thinks he can possibly say. “Did — did you want to go back?” he asks at last, pulling his hand back.

Alice stared at the ground, words escaping her.

"Er — point is, I know you. You may do bad things sometimes, but you’re not a bad person. Intentions count for a lot, at least for me." He offers the hanky.

Alice giggled, “So basically their useless individuals, is what your telling me?”

"Can you think of a use for them?” Victor asks, as a butterfly quietly lands on his head. “I certainly can’t.”

"Well, you know I’ll be here to fix you up immediately if anything happens." Alia said with a grin, "I’m your go-to medic!"

She laughs again and takes a bit more chocolate at the offer, eating the new piece. She wasn’t about to deny it, she just didn’t want to be greedy. 

"Yup! That’s also why, on halloween, people get a sugar rush. It’s actually the chocolate, not the sugar! Crazy stuff." She noted, then laughed, "I’ll have to start going with you on your chocolate trips. I’m sure Sam and Dia wouldn’t mind the relaxation. They actually got jobs as monster hunters, of all things! Then again, Dia’s great with all sorts of guns, and Sam’s a master with any sort of bladed weapon. They’d certainly do great at their job."

She grinned and nodded as Victor halts her so he could bring their drink. She leaned against the counter and ate the rest of her chocolate piece, humming to herself as she inspected her new nails. Just a little added detail, which she prevented from letting deal any sort of pain, so it was merely for aesthetics. Luckily, they worked well, the way they’re supposed to! She’d show Victor later, maybe.

"I know you would, and I appreciate it," Victor assures her. "But — I’d simply prefer that nothing of the sort ever happened to me." Yes, she’s a whiz, and he’s sure any replacement arm she made would be just as good as the real thing — but the actual moment of losing the flesh version would haunt him forever. Not to mention he’d almost certainly have to relearn how to play the piano…

"Interesting — though really, how would you notice anything like that around here?" he jokes once he returns, arranging the cups. "And you’re welcome to come — I’m sure my favored sweet shop wouldn’t mind the extra business." He glances up as he pours. "Have they? Well then, I’m happy for them! It can be dangerous work, but so long as they know what they’re doing…and as you just said, they’ve got one of the best medics around to help them," he adds with a wink.

He slides a cup over Alia’s way, along with the cream. The sugar he holds back for himself for the moment, adding a few healthy spoonfuls to his tea. “So, other than the madness in our alternates’ lives, how are you?”

"Not any more, I suppose." Alia noted, "I know… I feel bad for her… At least I didn’t have mine lost for long. I don’t know what the hell they were thinking. Then again, apparently their entire life has become a mess. I don’t know what’s wrong with them…"

She smiled weakly, rubbing her shoulder and sighing softly.

"Tea actually sounds really nice right now…" She admitted, then laughed as he offered her his chocolate, "Only a LITTLE. It is your chocolate."

She broke off a small piece from the bar, then happily ate the sweets, humming approvingly.

"Interestingly enough, it’s actually true that chocolate makes you happy! Did you know?" She asked, deciding a new conversation would lighten the mood, especially one about science, "There’s something in chocolate that makes you produce more of the chemicals that make you happy! The smell slows brainwaves, and it causes the body to releases endorphins. So, even on a scientific lever, chocolate makes you happy! How nuts is that? Chocolate with nuts… That actually sounds really good…"

"I do too, even if I’ve never actually gone through that…" Victor rubs his arm some more. "It’s — it’s a big fear of mine, a-actually…poor thing…" He nods. "It must be a huge mess for them not to think of you when it comes to replacement limbs. I hope my other self is holding up all right…"

"Oh, please, take as much as you want — I’m not that stingy with my sweets,” Victor jokes as she takes a few squares off the bar. He has a bite himself from what remains to soothe his nerves, then listens to her go on about how chocolate scientifically makes you happy. “Really? That’s amazing! I always knew it tasted good, but I never thought much about the whys, or how it might affect the body… Then again, my scientific specialty is butterflies, not food.” He licks his lips. “That does sound good…I’ll have to see if Wonka has any chocolate-and-nut bars the next time I visit the sweet shop.”

He takes another bite from his bar, then holds up a finger. “Anyway, I’ll be right back with tea.” He hurries away from the counter and upstairs, grabbing the teapot from its spot on the stove and taking it, a couple of cups, and the cream and sugar back downstairs.
