+ The True Moral +

[ Grey ruffles obscure the broadcast, until the Duchess takes a step aside. She has taken her head off whole, and placed it carefully on a scale. She watches the numbers rise... rise... rise, until the scale beeps, and stops just at 39.9 pounds. The Duchess sighs, pleased, and picks her head back up. ]

Heavy is the head that knows the truth, make sure 'tis not too much to bear!

[ A long silence follows.

After a while it occurs to her that her audience may be with her still.
]

'Tis all I shall tell you today. If you wish to dig, dig yourself, what good is any truth if it lies buried with you? [ She taps her lip. ] Cremated, I suppose, that would be more accurate.

[ The Duchess primly sets her head straight in her lap. ]

Now, shall we bake a cake to help us through these frightful times? [ She clears her throat. ] You will need two eggs, two tablespoons cocoa, half a cup shortening, one and a half cups white sugar, one teaspoon of salt, one teaspoon vanilla extract, one cup buttermilk, two and a half cups all-purpose flour, sifted of course, one and a half teaspoons baking soda....

[ This will go on for some time. Feel free to bake along. ]

[That wasn't awkward at all. Nope, no deep, dark secrets here. Hah hah hah...]

[Best to address the Duchess with formality. Might as well keep her company as she bakes.]


I appreciate your skills as a baker, my lady. Most nobles would just have their cook make every meal for them.

[Is she trying to... No, there is no way she would know. She's only here to warn. Then again...]

Mmn. You might have a point.

Speaking of spoiled things, do you have plans this weekend? I never see you about during the events, and I do get worried for your safety.

[Not that much, but he won't admit that to her face.]

[This is... very interesting both in the fact that there is a woman literally weighing her head and in that she seems to be talking about truth, a topic very near and dear to Georgia's heart.

Heavy is the head that knows the truth. Ha. Doesn't she know it.]


I'm always in favor of sharing truths. Sometimes makes the easier to bear.

[Sometimes not.]

[Her frown deepens very slightly under her sunglasses.]

Sometimes it's damage that has to be done. Distracting and entertaining won't solve anything.

[He squints and debates whether or not to even answer. They're hardly ever helpful when he talks to the locals. Were they even locals, or had they all just been here so long they forgot everything else from before? It's all a lot to consider and Cisco isn't sure he's completely ready for that kind of thinking just yet.

Nevertheless. An Event warning was always the prime time to get answers, if you could think of the right question to ask.]


Dare I even ask why cremation is more appropriate? [Because that's just a tad concerning.]
thisismadfreaky: ({Hat} Derp)

Once something is known, it can't be unknown. [A beat.] Well, I guess unless you stick around here long enough.

[ "Salt and burn." Words he thinks of now that echo in the voices of younger Winchesters, and in their father's. It's been a long time since they've taken care of any bodies.

... Probably for the best. ]


Where should we dig?

Why cremated?

[What with her mouth not being connected to her throat and all.]

[Taako squints.]

Uhhhh.

[Nope, he can't follow that at all.]

I just want to know what effect eating cake would have on your head.

[...Snort.]

Does it go straight to your hips?

Hi there. You're different from the last two I saw.

...I like your head.

[Oh it's been awhile since he's spoken to the Duchess! He still has her gift which he appreciates despite not really knowing what to do with it currently. All the same it's... good? To see her?

And honestly he's kind of curious if what the Duchess is instructing will actually turn into a cake. So he gathers the ingredients as she instructs, sets his camera up and himself up in the kitchen and gets ready to bake along.]


Is that why you had to set your head aside? Because the truth was weighing it down?

[He adjusts his little apron to make sure it is on tight.]

All right, what's the next step in this recipe?
