The Clocktower, New Gotham, Saturday
Dinah had actually bought some pretty nice presents for Priestly's birthday, and had found a good place to get a cake (the guy shouldn't have to make one on his own birthday (unless he really wanted to)). It was going to be a pretty cool day--

--but Dinah was not in residence. Instead, Elizabeth Tudor, Queen of England, France and Ireland, Defender of the Faith, etc. (circa 1558), was stopping by.

Currently she was looking out the glass windows of the Clocktower in amazement, a little fear, and a great deal of bewilderment.

Which would probably shortly become 'really pissed off' as soon as she had someone to talk to.

[Open for visits and phone calls! Dinah is now Queen Elizabeth I, based on Rachel Skarsten's appearances on Reign.]

There was a loud and possibly incredibly bouncy and cheery ringtone being played from somewhere in the Clocktower.

Hopefully someone would answer it before Momoko decided to worry.

Elizabeth flinched, then paused, wondering at the sound of music in the air. She followed the repeated sing-song tune to a small device. Then stared at it a moment. It rang again. "Stop," she said experimentally, and poked at it. "Cease and desist your noise, contraption!"

Excuse you! This phone was FREE, thank you.

Okay, maybe it was actually servant to a master, but it wasn't voice activated, so nyaaaaaah!

Oops. I mean, *Ringtone*

Oh this was priceless. "Touch your finger on the green circle," Priestly suggested. "Then hold it to your head. It'll tell you secrets."

He really shouldn't tease the unhappy queen.

She was onto you, Priestly. Although she was also curious enough to push the button to see what happened. Nothing. Ha!

Then she held it to her head. "Tell me secrets," Elizabeth commanded. "And if you don't, I shall be scolding Sir Priestly harshly."

"..." Momoko pulled the phone away and stared at it. Was this some sort of birthday game? "Uhm. I once dyed my hair black thinking it would get me a boyfriend and ended up getting suspended from school?"

"Why would you do that?" Most hair dyes were nearly toxic. "Are you a courtesan?" Queen Elizabeth demanded. "How are you speaking through this tiny device, and who are you?" She glared over at Priestly. "I am the Queen of England, Ireland, and France, and I will not be trifled with!"

Priestly pressed a hand over his mouth to stifle his smirk. "Uh, your highness, this might be another one of those instances where it's best to just go 'magic' and leave it at that. Also, maybe don't call my friends courtesans."

"AM I A WHAT?!" Momoko knew that word, Dinah! "What are you talking about?"

... oh. Wait... 'scolding Sir Priestly harshly'...

"Did I call at a, uhm, bad time?"

Look, Momoko had knowledge of these things, even she didn't use it.

"I have been kidnapped from my Palace! By magic. And am stranded in the New World with insulting cooks!"

That would be a yes.

"Although the food is quite enjoyable."

Priestly facepalmed. "If I may, your highness?" He held out his hand for the phone.

"Fine," Queen Elizabeth huffed, handing him the contraption. "It doesn't work right anyway, and the person speaking from it said nothing of secrets!"

Pout. Stomp off to glare out the window.

"Yeeeah, sorry. That was a little mean of me." Priestly didn't look very sorry as he lifted the phone to his ear. "Hello? Dinah's phone, currently being held hostage by the Virgin Queen."

"Virg... Are you two fighting or playing?" Momoko was very confused now. "Hi Priestly; happy birthday."

"Neither. Fandom's being mean." Priestly sighed. "Dinah's actually turned into Queen Elizabeth I of England." He side-eyed her. "And-Ireland-and-France."
