Emma was packing.

Well, no, that was a lie. Emma had attempted to pack. Emma had her suitcases open on the bed in her room and stuff flung everywhere. There was a trail of things she'd dropped all over the hallway, from where she'd rescued them from Jack's room or the room they shared, or the kitchen, or-- but she just didn't understand how so many of her things from New York had ended up here, or how much she'd had here in the first place, or how she was supposed to get it all to fit back into two suitcases. No matter what she did, she couldn't make it fit, and it was driving her up the wall.

Which meant it was time for a break, before she started making lists and color-coding things, or ended up just donating everything but her favorites and going shopping to distract her from her own brain. Emma had grabbed her sword and headed out to the front yard, taking up a stance amongst the other residents of their address. Footwork drills without knocking anyone over, and then attacks to see how many she could 'kill' before they reappeared the next day.

It was rather soothing, actually, the way the damn things kept coming back. No matter how the residents of 33 Apocalpyse Avenue changed, the zombie gnomes stayed the same.

"Are som eof those going back to New York with you?" Jack asked, in a firm, not-going-to-admit-I'm-sad-about-this kind of voice. "I wouldn't mind. Just dont't take Penny there, she's my favorite."

"And that would be the end of your career as a social climber," Jack said, mock-rueful. "Better they stay here where nobody cares."

"You could just ask me, you know," Jack laughed, once he pulled away from the kiss. "I'm even more reliable than the gnomes. And anyhow, sometimes I miss you a little bit."

By which he meant 'all the time' and 'a lot.'

"This is Fandom," Jack agreed, a laugh in his voice. "All right. I'll hold you to that, by the way. If you don't come back to steal my blankets I will pout horribly."

Jack smiled at her, trying to keep on an even keel. "Speaking of sweeping you off your feet," he said. "There is one -- well, a proposition I'd like to make before you go."

He'd been meaning to have this conversation with her for months, and it had never seemed like the right time. He wasn't sure this was it, either, but it was better he do it before he lost his nerve.

"Sadly this is something terribly traditional," Jack informed her, and swallowed hard. "I'll be done with school in another year and a bit. When I finish I'd like to move to your New York."

A beat.

"And I'd like to do it as your fiance."

He wasn't ready to get engaged yet. Engaged to be engaged, though? He could do that.

"Are you trying to tell me you don't know anybody who could make my degree valid there?Jack asked, trying to make his voice light even as his eyes were serious. He noticed that she hadn't said no to the proto-engagement, so that was ... some kind of victory, anyhow. "Seems like mutants need my help as much as things that go bump in the night do."

He took her hands in his, tilting his head as he weighed exactly what to say. "Emma, the way I look at it is that if we don't want to give up each other, one of us is going to have to give up our world sooner or later. You've got more to accomplish in yours than I do in mine. And nobody's going to force us to stay in your New York forever, if it comes to that."

Sometimes Karla's Black Widow powers manifested in dreams and visions acted out over a loom. Sometimes they were a lot more subtle, like a need to call an old friend out of the blue.

Ring ring!

And yet Karla was still unprepared for it. "Uhh, I just finished weeding my garden, getting ready for spring proper?"

For once, she'd been behaving!

"Well, I haven't gone back inside, so Darkness only knows if Kayla's bitten anyone again or if Julian's pissed off another Warlord Prince, but I haven't heard a commotion, so I'm going to assume the answer is no until I absolutely have no other choice," Karla said, laughing. "Things have actually been calm around here. It's rather nice."

"Or someone will steal the taxi you hail and he'll incinerate them because his feet hurt," Karla retorted. "Besides--don't tell him--but I actually like him sometimes now. Mostly when he's around the children and not aware there are other adults around, yes, but it does happen!"

She finished cleaning her gardening equipment and started lugging it over to the shed. "So how are you, darling. It's been forever since we caught up."

She could always start with, So Jack and I had this talk... and go from there?

"I'd suggest you send some of it ahead, but I've seen your apartment. There's no way it would fit," Karla teased. "At least, not with what's already there. Are you leaving some on the island or reselling to thrift shops. Your wardrobe would make some poor girl incredibly happy to find in the stacks."

"You really do," Karla agreed, ignoring that Emma had been speaking mostly to herself and ignorant of the whys behind it. "You've been living in that same apartment for how many years now? A little more room won't go amiss, darling."
