Jay and Acacia, still covered in unicorn blood, wandered almost aimlessly through the corridors of the Department of Bad Slash. They were aiming for Makes-Things' laboratory (if you asked Jay), or Upstairs (if you asked Acacia, who wasn't carrying a blood-soaked blue pelt), but either way, there was no need to hurry.

"Do you ever-?" Acacia began.

"Yep!" Jay exclaimed. "All the time, and twice on Sundays. What about you?"

Acacia stared at her. "I almost dread to ask this, but… what are you talking about?"

Jay blinked. "Me? What are you talking about?"

"But I asked first."

"But I answered first," Jay pointed out. "So it's your turn."

"… what I was about to say was, do you ever think about what Lux said?"

"What, invisible scrunchies?"

"No." Acacia made an uncertain gesture with one hand. "Relationships."

"Well, I think about them, sure," Jay said, shrugging. "Hard not to, when every time I turn round I see Mary and the Sues deciding Legolas would make a good trophy-boyfriend."

Acacia grimaced. "It's not that I love my job," she muttered, "but compared to the alternative…"


"But no, I meant in the… personal sense."

"All relationships are personal," Jay pointed out seriously, "and I take Mary-Sues very personally." She glanced at her friend. "Why – are you asking me out?"

Acacia spluttered. "Not in a million worlds!" she exclaimed. "I was just… I don't know, making conversation? It's a thing normal people do."

"Ah, well, there's your problem," Jay told her. "We're not normal." She threw her partner a wink, then pursed her lips and began to whistle.
