Andi is annoyed by all this not having alts she's doing. Bella comes in singlet, so maybe she does too. They should look. C'monnnn. It's not, like, urgent or anything, but she thinks she is pretty neat and there should be more of her.
"And you arrived together. Although on paper I'm not compatible with mine either."
"Hmmm? ...I mean, Mitros sort of tried to make it work but it's really a pretty glaring incompatibility -"

"You holding up okay? She's - going to be fine."
"I hope the lucid dreams and stuff did her more good than you harm, you seem to have gone kinda... perseveratey."

"I am sure once she's in one piece it'll mean a lot to her."

"She liked her version of Julius Caesar better, hasn't otherwise commented on that."
"She is going to owe you a lot of nice presents."
"What, for reading to her?"
"For general emotional-turmoil-put-through."
"By this logic Maira owes me presents. Except for how she is dead now."
"That sounds like a pretty excellent present."
"If only it had been in time for my birthday."
"Has Loki shown you the dramatic illusion version of her fight with Sauron - most climatic one - they're usually called Sauron -"
"Haven't met her in person yet, Cam says she's doing princess stuff, but I'm looking very much forward to that, my way isn't climactic at all."
