Tear my mindless heart away

[p. Alouette]

IDK she's preggo, have fun

How she ended up with Alouette as a companion, Kalypso did not know, but she felt strangely comfortable with the other woman. She was not a sibling, for all that she had come with Dreyma to the Court. It was strange, but it was also not something that the Reine was going to look her nose up considering that she was decidedly lacking in supportive female companionship of late. Her siblings still were wary of her, though she could at least count on Thyri and Abigail at the end of the day.

That Alouette was willing to be her friend was an odd sort of thing that really put her at ease. Without her mother nearby, Kalypso was starved for the support she once had with her sisters, brother, and mother. Now, with only half-siblings, she felt like she had lost her entire support system and did not know how to get it back properly. At least some folk would be helpful, but it was just not quite the same.

What are we looking for today? she asked, in an oddly cheery voice considering how stormy her emotions had been of late. She had been snappish and weepy, on and off, as though the most harebrained thing would set off a hair-thin trigger. It was hard, pregnancy, and there was a lot of mixed emotions over Chaska's role in all of it. She did not love the man nor did he care for her that way. Now, she was stuck with children that would be unlikely to know who their father was, because it simply did not matter.

Ramblerumbleramble fluff.

Alouette was not of a rank that offered her presence in the court. A simple Seigneur that was trying to find their way among her fellow pack members, someone who had just, really, begun to branch off from the shadows she had lurked in for months after she found herself in the presence of the bi-colored boy outside the court. To be friends, even if their friendship was just beginning, with the Reine was a privilege she accepted without vice or judgement. At least she had known Kalypso and the 'Queen' of the court wasn't someone she didn't know or hadn't personally spent time with before the ascension.

The Court was as much her home as the rest's and that had come from her time spent there, the acquaintances she had earned from her reputation as a tailor and leather worker, even though she hadn't obtained a specialty or profession in these two aspects.

The cute, feral Alouette had never really been one to pass judgement on others. Even if she did think something wrongly about another, she kept it to herself until she at least knew the other's situation. In truth, she hadn't felt one way or another about Kalypso's pregnancy when she had scented it upon the woman. Dreyma was family and perhaps that was why she adored the thought of having more little ones running around, little ones that could look up to her the way she looked up to her 'adopted' sibling. She hadn't made a big deal about asking Kalypso, though. Not about the potential father or if Kalypso was going to go through with the pregnancy, the birth of the children. Nothing.

Instead, here they were, the better half of a trip to Halifax under their hypothetical belts. Blue eyes were unabashed as they explored the new area. Alouette had only come through here once. There hadn't been much activity or presence here. The few shops she saw were things that traveling canines had set up in old buildings that looked as if they were ready to crumble. None had glass, as was dictated by the red star only a while back.

"I could always use cloth, even repaired, for clothes," Lou answered right away to the Reine's question. "Or new tools for leather working." The chances that she'd find those were slim but she still half-way hoped that there would be something along those lines. "Last time I came through here there were a few tradesmen selling beads. Some had pretty colors. They're not worth much but I think it'd be fun to look at them and see if there's anything to add to the stores back home."

Kalypso clicked her tongue in thought as they walked on, appreciative of the conversation that did not revolve around pregnancy or anything else. It was nice to talk about mundane things, even if they were important to another person. It eased her worried heart a little to drift from the thoughts that lurked in her mind.

I think you should look in our storage for cloth that's left. I think we have some. There was unlikely anything to remain unless it was well sheltered from the weather, especially the moisture. Rot would eat at any cloth faster than the plague took a soul from the earth. Well, perhaps that was an exaggeration but a still valid point. Their odds of finding well preserved cloth was like finding a trove of treasure of working human technology; it was just beyond unlikely.

Cloth rotted and wore away, paper faded and molded, metal rusted. Things ended, even the inorganic ones seemed to have an expiration date. Gods above, more morbid thoughts abound. Kalypso tightened her expression, determined to pull herself out of the funk she had settled into from thinking about the perils of birthing and misfortune of having to raise children when she as devoid of truly beloved family.

Then she looked at the girl. Did you want to make jewelry? Abigail uses the sea glass to make things if you wanted to try. Or just collect it. She fiddled with one of her old necklaces, though they were not made of sea glass, she desperately wanted to do something with it. They could be a valuable commodity, if only someone could market them right. They could be worth plenty. We should send more to the Outpost and see if they have luck in Portland, she mused out loud, more to herself than directly to Alouette. She hummed thoughtfully as they walked, eyes lazily darting about.

A shining something caught her eye in a collection of fallen brickwork. Brows furrowed as she approached it, and waved over the other woman. Her crouch was slow, painfully slow, and she grumbled at her waddling body. Fingers began to dig out bits of brick, whole and fragmented.
