Six weeks and two days.

It's hard to concentrate on much of anything when that's all you've got left. And since she's already taken her leave from work so it won't happen in the middle of the semester, that means Mia doesn't have as much to do.

So today has been devoted to cleaning up her living quarters, the nursery in particular. And doing the baby's laundry so it will be ready for him. And making sure the baby's toys are clean. And then Draco's laundry and ironing Draco's work shirts and trousers. And then preparing things for tonight's dinner. And then her laundry while the inner slow-cooks. And then making dessert. And then folding all of those clean clothes and putting them away. And then the kitchen will have to be cleaned up, of course. And then the table should be set. And what about the bed, is it clean?

It sounds like a lot, but magic does help get it done. Though, once it's done, Mia finds she would rather it wasn't done and then does it again the muggle way to make sure it's done right.

At least it hasn't gotten to the point where she's ironing the baby's clothes...

[After this.]

Worlds of magic. They never expected to visit one, but they're turning out to be quick studies of the traits and quirks to be found in this section of one.

We need to see if Extensive can replicate this, and then determine how it ought to be ... applied.

Tomax seems to be particularly impressed, though for him it's all a matter of degree.

Because you'd think they were a couple of excited tourists on their first visit to some exotic land [it is, and they kind of are 8P].

...but then they recover from Tourist Syndrome and segue into "amused".

It's hard to top Mia and her mother-henning, but the maid is giving it her best effort.

"We did offer—"

"—To help her, but—"
"—She turned us down, too."
Turn downs look to be in everyone's cards tonight, they're positive of it.

Oh, so it's the maid who wins this round of the contest.

Bit early to cash in one's chips, though.

Mia can still defy orders. They can still win the [non-existent] wager.

"We will—"

"—Make sure to do that,"

they say, accepting their cups when they're given them.

"This place is—"

"—Truly a marvel, and—"
"—All done with magic, too,"
they remark as they take in their surroundings.

Maids know best, don't they?

"It is like—"

"—The interior of—"

"—A castle of mixed architecture—"

"—Possibly European-inspired—"

"—Or a retro-designed mansion."
Pause.

"The workmanship of—"

"—Your family and those—"

"—Who helped build this—"
"—Is remarkable."
And they certainly know high-end when they see it.

Or it could be due to an architectural equivalent to convergent evolution. Over time, you get similar styles even without the two ever meeting long enough for cross pollination to take place.

"However would you—"

"—Not fit in with the others?"
xamotomax: (Default)

From: [personal profile] xamotomax


"And yet you—"

"—Created your own—"

"—Reputation regardless."

Pause.
"Clearly, you did not need to worry over being 'good enough'."
xamotomax: (X - Grin)

From: [personal profile] xamotomax


"The maid called you 'majesty'."

"An honorific as that is never given to—"
"—A 'glorified teacher'."

On Lunar, the caste system is alive, well, and still kicking.

"But admittedly—"

Xamot takes a sip of his tea.

"—Some deserve it more than others?"
xamotomax: (Default)

From: [personal profile] xamotomax


"No. That—"
Tomax begins, possibly obscurely. And is finished with Xamot's
"—Comes later, does it not?"

"You earned it in the end," Xamot points out.

"And your son will, too, once he is old enough to."

Whether or not Kaworu knew he was coming here is no matter, whether or not she knew is no matter! Because now that he is here, clearly he has the mission of making her sit the hell down.

..oh, but then she would get to wash that.

"First off, Mia, learn the wonder of babysitters and housekeepers." He had enjoyed seeing Joshua run havoc when he probably should have stopped the boy. Erm... oops?

"Secondly, why don't we learn the meaning of a break, together?"

Has she, has anyone, ever seen that true smile of his, the one that almost makes the illusion of green in his eyes? Hmm.

"From what I've heard, small things can push labour when you least expect it."

But he knows it's a waste of breath, really. Birds of a feather, flock together, eh?

"I wish I can spend the most time with you on, and see this home of yours."

Winning tactic y/n?
