bewitched armor

There are plenty of things to do. Bella orders a carpet to enchant so she can commute to and from Reformist Wizards efficiently and move house. She starts combing through the castle library to find background material on her Minor Technical Issue.

Sometimes she watches Sherlock cook.

Sometimes she watches Tony forge. (Nnnnf.)

As promised, Tony does start working on enchanted armour for Bella.

This involves taking a lot of measurements.

And after that, it involves a lot of forging.
allthebrightest: Sitting, happy or smug. (+= on top of the world)

[personal profile] allthebrightest 2013-04-04 11:34 pm (UTC)(link)
That is good! It is good that she's cooperative!

The armour that takes shape is very, very pretty. At Bella's request, it has witchable sleeves, which means loose cloth from elbow to wrist; after some consultation, Tony added a pair of short fingerless gloves. From shoulder to elbow, it's the same surprisingly comfortable metal scales as the rest of the armour, each one crafted with loving attention.

A long black cape hangs from the suit's shoulders. Tony is adamant about the cape. The cape, she says, is absolutely necessary.

She works her magic into each piece as she makes it, but it's hard to tell which parts are supposed to do what - even with extensive magical analysis - until the entire thing is finally assembled.

All together it seems made of grace and light, not leather and steel. Every scale, every rivet says dance with me. It weighs half as much as Sherlock's self-deploying plate mail, and it's twice as magical, glittering with protection and enhancement and sometimes just raw love.

And the cape?

The cape is for flying.
allthebrightest: Smiling affectionately. (*= okay. yeah. okay.)

As soon as Tony is done with Bella's, she starts working on one for herself. She usually doesn't wear her own armour, but come on, who doesn't want to fly?
calendarofcrime: Grinning, amused. (!= not inclined to argue)

[personal profile] calendarofcrime 2013-04-05 12:02 am (UTC)(link)
Her fiancée is continually delighted by everything she does!
calendarofcrime: Thoughtful. (<= what is my name?)

[personal profile] calendarofcrime 2013-04-05 12:08 am (UTC)(link)
Yes, it's lovely how that works out, isn't it.
calendarofcrime: Thoughtful or puzzled. (<= captures my attention)

[personal profile] calendarofcrime 2013-04-05 12:11 am (UTC)(link)
"That is good to know," says Sherlock.
calendarofcrime: Thoughtful or amused. (<= what a novel concept)

[personal profile] calendarofcrime 2013-04-05 12:14 am (UTC)(link)
"Thank you."

Snuggle.
calendarofcrime: Beaming. (!= like a bolt of lightning)

[personal profile] calendarofcrime 2013-04-05 11:36 am (UTC)(link)
This is an excellent time for kisses.
allthebrightest: Contemplative, holding a lit match. (+= playing with fire)

So, Tony has been having some trouble with her flying armour.

She doesn't want it to come with a cape - she doesn't know why, she just doesn't feel capey. And she cannot for the life of her figure out how to get it to work without a cape.

So she starts going for walks, watching birds and thinking about air and metal. She sticks to the deep woods, when she remembers; they're as safe as it gets, for a member of the royal family who knows to be polite and friendly and never promise anything and always ask a squirrel.

She doesn't always remember.

And one afternoon, she doesn't come back from her walk.
calendarofcrime: Thoughtful. (<= what is my name?)

[personal profile] calendarofcrime 2013-04-22 11:10 pm (UTC)(link)
"Walking, ostensibly. I would expect her to be back by now, however."
calendarofcrime: Looking down, perhaps upset. (== come all the same)

Sherlock closes her eyes for a few seconds.
