So there were 5 comments when I woke up this morning BUT someone, I have no idea who, has given me an early Wonder City 5-year-anniversary gift! They created a Wonder City Stories TV Tropes page! So here is a bonus episode for you wonderful people.

Guess what I'm gonna do in celebration? There are currently 15 tropes on that page by my count. If you folks can get it to 20 tropes by Saturday noontime (Eastern DST), I'll post ANOTHER episode Saturday evening!

Limping Into Safe Harbor

The silence of the vast house enfolded Megan softly, cradling her in a soothing warmth that not only washed over her physically, but also mentally. She sat in the enormous chair that Zoltan had brought her with her eyes closed, enjoying the sensation of only her own thoughts rattling through the fire-damaged hallways of her brain, of being able to breathe without the ever-present invisible pressure to which she'd grown so accustomed.

The silence was occasionally punctuated by the sound of a page turning. Her only companion, an elderly gentleman named Harald Lakatos who had told her several times, gently, that the house wasn't his, was reading some enormous leatherbound tome off the nearby shelves.

There was a creak as the door opened. Megan opened her eyes. Harald, a lean, craggy man with immaculately-groomed white hair, closed his book on a finger and looked up.

A young-looking, graceful woman with dark hair and eyes leaned in the door. "Ah, Grandfather—" pretty much everyone in the Lakatos mansion called Harald this, though Megan had yet to figure out actual familial relations "—I wanted you and our guest to know that there is some… unrest happening in the city. But there is no threat to the house."

"Do you know what is happening, my dear?" Harald inquired.

"There have been some revelations on the television," she said, glancing at Megan. "And people are understandably upset."

"Ah," Harald said with a nod. "Well, thank you, my dear."

She nodded, gave Megan a small, tight smile, and backed out of the room, closing the door quietly.

Watson had told her, in an evasive way that reminded Megan that her own mental processes were not what they were, that something would be happening today, and that it might get "messy." Megan sighed and smiled vaguely at Harald's inquiring glance. "I guess Watson expected something like this."

"Zoltan did too," Harald said, nodding and opening his book. "Go back to your nap, my dear. There's no use worrying. Others, who are more capable than we at this point, are handling things."

Megan obediently put her head back, closed her eyes, and hoped Watson was all right.

AWW MEGAN. I still just love her. It was actually fairly upsetting when she was doing the perfume and makeup! (and I _like_ perfume - LOVE my BPAL. Just -- Megan!)
