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.]

"What, no taking away the power of portals and making it free for everyone?" Momoko giggled. "Are you sure you're not affected by the weirdness too?"

"There are a lot of variables to account for," Priestly said grumpily. "It's not like we can just let anyone fly a jet liner, either."

"Well, you can let me fly one!" Momoko snickered. "But I'm teasing you; I know what you meant. And totally agree."

"Are you having horrible political debates with Her Majesty about stuff like that? Monopolies and ownership of stuff? Back then was still a real monarchy, if I remember. Not like today's. You going to try to change the past by making her a... a liberal? I notice you haven't been arguing that she's made you a knight."

"I've mellowed since my Arthur days," Priestly said proudly. "So far I've only told her that her society oppresses everyone. Including herself."

"You haven't mentioned crime rates of the poor or gender roles? Wow! I am impressed! Maybe it's because you're getting oooold."

"I kept having to pause to explain refrigerators and wheelchairs."

"Ooooh! How did you manage that?" Momoko still didn't really understand how kitchen appliances worked.

"I coined the phrase 'science-magic' and had to convince her I wasn't a wizard."
