Location: New York City

Alias: Center of the Universe

A lively group makes its way out of the Building (after a tour is given, of course, and several newer TFY members faint at the sight of Angel) and down Avenue B.

It's unlikely that this group will be harrassed. Reputations are useful on occasion.

"It," Vida declares, "is very good to be home."

"And your home is absolutely fabulous." Captain Shakespeare says with a firm nod, but may it be noted, that his eyes are wide and staring about at all the sites to see. "Never had I imagined a place like this existed!"

"You won't find another city like this anywhere in the world. New York is special."

There might be crime and poverty, but every city has those sorts of problems. New York has its own kind of magic.

A turbaned man gets out of a taxi cab not too far from them and nods at the group before entering a shop. A black lady exits the same shop, struggling to keep track of her purchases and her child. Three teenagers walk down the street, laughing amongst themselves.

"I can certainly see that." The Captain nods, looking very pleased and curious at everything and everyone around him. "You won't find this much diversity, this much color, excitement, and life anywhere in my world. We may have magic, but this... this it's like it has it's own magic. A different kind, but magical, nonetheless."

Valentine is leaning on a convinient pole and beaming. "Force, I'd forgotten what it's like to see cars actually on the ground."

Mark rolls his eyes. And here, ladies and gentlemen, we have one Valentine Skywalker, late of Earth, who has forgotten the land of her birth, in favour of the more interesting land of Coruscant. And folks, we have the return of the narration.

Mark snorts behind the camera while Valentine blinks. "Is that a normal occurance? I don't remember sidewalk driving."

The poor future girl doesn't remember the horror that comes when people drive on the sidewalk. This cameraman hopes that she never has to find out.

"Around here, traffic rules are more like suggestions than anything else."

Ah, New York.

"Sounds like the open sky, but there's more open space to take rules as suggestions up there." Captain Shakespeare stares at a car as it passes, trying to figure out how the ting works. "Those little metal boxes don't look difficult to steer at least!"

He looks like he wants to try driving one, don't let him.

"Honey, they're more complicated than they look. They're called cars--automobiles, actually, but we all call them cars. Why don't we step into here--this is one of my favorite shops."

Shiny distractions!

"Oooh! There are plenty of shops in this city too. It's like an indoor bazaar! So much to see and to buy!" He should really see a mall at some point, and then he'll see a real indoor bazaar.

"We'll take you to the mall on your next visit," Vida decides, breezing into the store. "Hello there, darling." The clerk blushes endearingly and Vida takes the Captain towards the feather section.

There is gasping, and yes, clapping. The Captain leans over toward Vida, grinning as he whispers, loudly. "I've never seen such a display! This is fantastic!"

Angel can't help but grin. He's not really all that surprised that the tour's sort of become a community effort, in among the shopping.
While the feathers are being gleed over, he's giving the fabric some consideration. Tablecloths may do the trick nicely, but Angel's not afraid to use other stuff.

Mark is filming everyone's reactions in turn, but Valentine is standing and watching, bemused. She's not necissarily into the fabulous, but she really does like watching people.

"Hold still then--no, I don't think fuschia will work, though a light pink or deep maroon might suit you well."

Vida is in her element. Sara's joined Val in the amused people-watching segment.

"Really? You think?" Captain Shakespeare is very open to suggestions, as he has no one to discuss such things with in his own world. "Oh, pink has always been my color."

"I think so as well---Angel, darling, have you any suggestions?"

Might as well get two expert opinions.

"...Why not try both? The colors work together."
Which means putting them together can't go far wrong.

"An excellent suggestion. Let's go with that, and perhaps some of this silver as a contrast---"

The door shop opens. "You don't need to tell me that people have strange ideas of fashion----Vida? Why're you with someone dressed like Angel?"

Vida had hoped this would happen elsewhere.

Angel... is just going to be very, very amused now.
"What the hell took you so long?"

"Well, Chi-Chi was having a crisis and I thought I'd help---what the hell? Angel? This...this is not happening. I've lost my mind."

Mark caught the reaction. Of course he did.

And here, ladies and gentlemen, we have Miss Noxeema Jackson, confused at the sudden appearance of our beloved Angel, who keeps maintaining that it is not a job description. For once, I can agree with her. We promise, dear viewers, that this is no joke. We should assure the dear woman that this is not, in fact, a hallucination.

Oh, come on. No one can narrate like that.

"Noxie, darling, it's a very long story. Angel could come with us today due to very very very special circumstances. I promise I will explain."

She glowers at Vida. "You'd damned well better. I don't like these kinds of surprises."

"Sounds like I missed all the excitement." Collins doesn't seem the least bit surprised. If anything, he's highly amused.

"Better late than never, Collins. This is better than a movie." Sara is also highly amused.

"Angel is here. Angel is dead but Angel is here. There had better be one hell of an explanation." Noxie tries to compose herself, looking over at the Captain's choice of accessories. "You definitely need white along with the others."

"Vida was suggesting silver, right before you got here. Either could work."
There is a good explanation. And odds are everyone's going to chime in on it at some point.

"And God knows if we need glitter, all we'll have to do is ask Kyle."

"I went by the studio a few days ago and she actually seemed to have depleted her stock. She looked very forlorn."

Mark snorts, actually putting the camera down. "God help us all, Kyle's almost out of glitter."

Valentine chuckles, leaning perhaps a bit heavily against a table. "Perhaps it's better for the environment. That glitter can't be good for things."

"She'll probably stock up at some point. For now, though, I think we have somewhat more pressing concerns."
Like shopping. For things other than glitter.

"Of course. Noxie, didn't you say you found a better shoe store?"

"Oh yes, you have to see this. Stuff that Audrey Hepburn would have wept over!" Noxie gushes, leading them out the door once their purchases have been settled.

Captain Shakespeare, being the gentleman that he is, insists on being the one to carry all the bags or as many as he can, considering there will surely be much of them.

"I always loved a good set of shoes. Do lead the way, darling!"
