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.]

"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."


"I bet she's going to be so happy on Monday; Dinah totally is into monarchy." Momoko laughed again, because, "Not. Has she ordered anyone guillotined? Wait... is that the right queen?"

"Guillotines are French Revolution. About two hundred years from Liz the First. She told me she wasn't allowed to apologize but that she would deign to let me feed her instead."

"After she eats it, she will realize what an honour it is, getting Priestly food," Momoko nodded. "Welcome to the having a Queen for a BFF club! It's always worse when they have to follow protocol or have stuffy retainers with them.... Dinah doesn't have any stuffy retainer around, right?"

"Nah, far as I can tell, she's here alone." He dropped the phone a bit away from his mouth. "Hey Queenie, you didn't bring any retainers along, did you?"

"Don't call me Queenie!" Really, Priestly-person. "And no. I wish Kat were here to see this, she would love the view. And William." Who could be stuffy as anything but was smart and useful. "...Do you think that Helena woman will help me get out of these clothes this evening?"

"If you ask nicely, I could help you with it, now." Priestly was teasing. He knew he'd get an explosive reaction from Elizabeth and a heart-eyed shipper reaction from Momo. It was too good to pass up.

Why yes, he would!

"If *I* asked you nicely would you help her?"

"Impudence," Queen Elizabeth hissed. Although she was also smirking. "You are presumptuous, Mr. Priestly!" Although she'd started it by talking about removing clothing, hadn't she. Her voice still got louder. "If I want your help taking off my clothing, you will be informed at the time!"
