It's late, late at night by the time Meg is standing in front of Lilly's room, and she doesn't knock loudly.

It doesn't seem quite fair to wake her up. And there's always the Threshold. But -

Well. Just in case she is up.

Just in case.

Lilly was sleeping on the sofa, having drifted off while watching a movie and half-expecting Puck to return with the babies at any moment. It takes her a second to get up and over to the door, but she's awake by the time she opens it.

"Meg! Uh, hey."

Lilly waves that away with an airy gesture.

"Nah, I'm a mom now. Lack of sleep is... uh. Whatever. C'mon on in."

She's eyeing the tired look on Meg's face.

"Can I get you something?"

"Duh, of course you can stay here. That's always a given. And, um."

Lilly glances at Meg's face, remembering their talk. Remembering who Meg had gone to talk to earlier tonight.

"If you want to talk about it at all, well. I have sofa, I have ice cream, that sort of thing."

Lilly leans back out of the freezer.

"That's good?"

She heads towards the couch bearing a carton of ice cream and two spoons.

"I mean. I know there wasn't really any way for it to go well, but."

Lilly blinks at that, before taking a thoughtful swallow of ice cream.

"Actually, uh. It might help. Watching Logan screw his way through Neptune's underclassmen post-death didn't really do much because, well. Logan. He copes with sex sometimes, and I was dead. But..."

She smiles a little crookedly.

"Hearing that he and Veronica were dating really put the whole relationship thing behind us here."

"Yeah. Otherwise it's just too weird."

Lilly sighs.

"And hard, of course. If it helps, it does get a little easier. Although... in the cases where it doesn't end so well, the weird doesn't always go away. I think you and Andrew are safe from that, though."

Lilly laughs, a little, at that.

And then she takes another spoonful of ice cream and slurps it contemplatively.

"Um. I don't know if you've thought about like, the logistics yet but... You're not going to move to the Threshold, right?"

Date: 2007-05-01 06:11 am (UTC)
awesome_lilly: (hopeful smile)
From: [personal profile] awesome_lilly
Lilly licks ice cream off her spoon in a thoughtful way for a few more seconds, before nodding decisively and sitting up.

"The thing is, Meg- I've been thinking. Indy and I, well. We don't really talk these days. Mike and Mel and I still do, of course, but... they're MikeandMel. And I just got twin babies, and everyone else in the suite has like-"


"-day jobs, and needs their sleep, and well. I'm going to move out. To 232, just above here, so my ninjas and Slayers can climb right over the balcony to visit me."

She slants a hopeful sideways smile at Meg.

"I'd love a roommate."

"Hell yeah," Lilly says promptly, grinning back.

"And a live-in BFF. With toenail painting and hairstyling and gossiping and dancing around like idiots on sugary booze highs, even if you will be more graceful than idiotic. Our suite will be awesome.

Date: 2007-05-01 07:16 pm (UTC)
awesome_lilly: (grudgingly amused)
From: [personal profile] awesome_lilly
"Good," Lilly says firmly.

"Because I wouldn't want a roommate who had other priorities. I mean, what if you needed quiet study hours every night? How would I cope?"

She pauses.

"If, however, we study dancing... then it's totally cool. I'll teach you routines from my time if you give me a little extra ballet grace."

awesome_lilly: (beaming)
From: [personal profile] awesome_lilly
"Hell yeah," Lilly replies.

"I mean, what else am I going to do with my money? It's not like I need to worry about retirement planning. We can have a studio and a hot tub and a big-screen tv and a freakin water slide if we want."

Date: 2007-05-13 04:06 am (UTC)
awesome_lilly: (green eyed smile)
From: [personal profile] awesome_lilly
"Oh, I know it is."

Lilly may be a trifle smug.

"So yeah, you've got House of Arch money, Say True money, we're all set for a swanky suite lifestyle. It's going to be the best ever."

awesome_lilly: (laughing)

Lilly breaks into giggles.

"Totally! I can so see it. Luckily for Raph, we'll be right upstairs. It'll hardly require any effort at all for him to come be grumpy at people."

Date: 2007-05-13 04:40 am (UTC)
awesome_lilly: (skeptical)
From: [personal profile] awesome_lilly
"...avoiding them, right?"

Lilly is picturing Raph holding two babies and the look on her face rather clearly indicates that she thinks the look on his face would not be one of a happily bribed man.

"I love the way you think, Meg."

Lilly beams at her.

"We're going to be the best roommates ever. We have so much in common!"

Really, if you consider all of the dead blonde terrifying-people-into-submission evidence, it's frighteningly true.
