Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
Well, well, well....if it isn't Victor Creed. Aren't you a sight for sore eyes?

"An’ what might ya be doin’ in my neck o’ th’ woods, darlin’?"

"Oh, just visiting friends and relations. I’m not sure you’re either one, but I suppose I could be persuaded to buy you a drink just the same, in the name of good manners."

Hello, Cas.

Astrid! Hello, I haven’t seen you in a while.

Yeah, that’s my fault. I’ve been off-world for a bit.

How are things with you?

There have been some major…difficulties as of latr but on the whole I’m still alive so how bad can it all be? I’m glad to see you well.

I’m glad to see you in one piece too. Your line of work isn’t exactly a quiet one.

I’ve been on Sto with Connor. Cas, you should see the size of that boy. I swear he grows a little more every time I take my eyes off him.

Well. It’s difficult but it’s worthwhile so I have no complaints. I’m glad to hear you and Connor have been well. How old is he now?

Well past two, and well on his way to becoming a holy terror. He’s all limbs and hands and rampant curiosity.

Sounds like more work than usual. But it sounds like while this is hard you enjoy it. Parenting a toddler. I’m glad. He doesn’t get into too much trouble does he?

He’s a bit of a handful, but I suspect it’s mostly to do with his newfound toddler energy. At least he’s good about napping…and letting Mummy sleep occasionally.

And the good Sisters do help.

Hello, Cas.

Hi, Sis.

Astrid? Where have you been?

"I’d love to drop in and see everyone while I’m here. How is the family these days?" She coos at the Gylla and bats her own blue eyes back at the little one. "Ooo, aren’t you just the sweetest widdle button? Yes you are!"

"Well, busy, if I’m honest. As we should be, given circumstances." Sigyn held out Gylla slightly. "Do you want to hold her? She enjoys that. What about you and Connor? He’s grown, you said?"

"As if you had to ask! Oh, come here, you little cherub." She cuddled and kissed Gylla with every evidence of enjoyment. "Connor loves the sway-and-snuggle too. He’s growing into his baby pudge, but he’s still fondest of cuddling up to Mummy for storytime."

[ she laughs, nodding and taking gylla back ] It is. Meet Gylla, future Queen of Jotunnheim.

Astrid bobs a respectful curtsey to the babe.

"Your Royal Highness. Oh Sigyn, she is absolutely precious! Look at those cheeks!"

Sigyn’s smile is fit to burst, stretching from ear to ear. She strokes Gylla’s cheek as the girl stares at Astrid with wide, red eyes.

"The twins should be around somewhere. The elder children are likely with Loki in the throne room."

"I’d love to drop in and see everyone while I’m here. How is the family these days?" She coos at the Gylla and bats her own blue eyes back at the little one. "Ooo, aren’t you just the sweetest widdle button? Yes you are!"

Ooooo, I missed you too. *gives Sigyn a good hearty squeeze*

And is that a new mini-you I spy?

Ummmmm….around? I suppose a “fancy meeting you here” isn’t going to cut the mustard.

Mostly, I’ve been with Connor on Sto. Sigyn, you should see him, he’s a young elephant.

Gods, come here, you. [ hugs her after handing gylla off to her handmaiden ]

I’m glad you’ve been with Connor. Truly.

Ooooo, I missed you too. *gives Sigyn a good hearty squeeze*

Hello, Doctor.

Astrid..? 

Yes, that is still my preferred handle, despite certain bureaucratic snarls about my surname.

Long time no see. How are you?
