Jack was still looking into his options for law school. He was about 75 percent certain he'd end up staying in Maryland one way or another -- but it never hurt to have an up-to-date-exit strategy, did it?

He wasn't sure he could see himself in New Amsterdam. (New York, to almost any other universe, but Jack's world clung to the Dutch name still.) Oh, he liked the city well enough -- but the schools he'd toured all seemed impersonal to him and far too expensive, and the idea of trying to establish himself in a community as crowded with were-things as New Amsterdam made him tired.

Still, there would be fringe benefits to being in Manhattan. One of them, as it happened, was only a portal away. Jack sipped a cafe au lait and prodded at the remnants of his third muffin as he waited for Emma.

[OOC: Open to calls and suchlike, or if you happen to be in Jack's world!]

Incredibly Stylishly late, Emma slid into the seat across from Jack, dropping bags of her purchases at her feet. Of course she'd been shopping. Jack's New Amsterdam still followed the fine tradition of fabulous shoes, and therefore must be patronized. Plus, they had bookstores that she did not have access to.

"Sorry for the delay, darling. My portal was ridiculously early for once, so I decided to play tourist."

"Ah, but that's the fun part," Emma sighed happily, leaning back in her seat. "All new designers that no one else is wearing. I'll be a sensation."

She took off her sunglasses and looked around. "So, anyone interesting? How did school-shopping go?"

"Awwww!" What? It was cute! "Has he figured you out yet? Or too oblivious in his desire to be human?"

"Best looking male, anyway," Emma retorted airily. "Best looking supernatural? Definitely."

Emma? Flirt shamelessly? Never.

"Well, you can't be perfect I suppose," Emma sighed in faux disappointment. "Since that's my tertiary power."

Arrogant banter and outrageous flirting were the best ways to show affection! Right?

"Would you prefer false humility?" she asked, fluttering her lashes at him as she slipped one foot out of her heels under the table. "I mean, I could try," she mused, keeping an utterly straight face as she gently bumped Jack's ankle with her foot. "-but what fun would that be?"

Emma smirked. "Neither of us have ever been boring," she agreed, sliding her foot up the inside of his leg so it would be easier to reach. "Which is why I forbid you from going into corporate law. While I'd love to have you on retainer--" DIRTY "--You're much more interesting when doing something you're passionate about."

Emma broke into a wide grin. "Done with my undergraduates!" she answered, unashamedly doing a victory dance in her chair. "One year to go on the MBA program, and I'm considering picking up courses for a PhD in psychology. Might as well, if I'm at the school anyway."

"You're always nice to Candy," Emma pointed out, laughing. "Especially when she's flirting shamelessly."

"I'll see what I can whip up. Since I can't fit people in my tiny apartment, I'll need to find a suitable venue."

"I..." Emma managed to look sheepish. "I might not be a junior member anymore?"

She reached for her purse and took a moment to fish for her wallet and pull out a white card. On one side, embossed in gold, was her name. The other side simply said "Hellfire, New York."

"Apparently I'm not a 'future' leader of the world anymore?" she said, offering it to Jack. "I mean, I can't hold down a 9-5 job while in the MBA program, so when they had an opening for a part-time accountant, I applied."

Emma made a face. "They ended up going with someone who has more experience, which I can understand, but they offered me a position basically doing my Devil's Nest hostess duties for big events. Check ID, direct people to the coat room, name tags, mingle, that sort of thing."

"There's no such thing as a 'nice' lawyer, Jack," Emma teased. Yes, totally reading his brain. "Predators, all of you."

Coming from Emma, that was a compliment.

"The only difference is which prey you're after."

"Oh, I don't know. You could be the Big Bad Wolf if you set your mind to it," she replied, giving him a sultry glance from under her lashes. "And rummaging is such a vulgar word... more like 'overheard.'"

Emma gave a half-shrug, her eyes sliding to the babyvamp Jack had pointed out earlier. "Just paying attention to what people are thinking... in case anyone tries to give someone a hard time."

"Just a habit from home. If I do 'hear' anything, you'll be the second person to know," she promised. "Really, it's one of the only ways I get to 'practice' lately. Being discreet is boooooooooring."

"Mmm... you much prefer clever truths much more," Emma teased back. "And ferreting out secrets."

"Being around you is rarely boring," Emma pointed out. "And since I hate to be bored, I shall simply have to keep you for a bit. Only until I get bored, of course."

"Considering how much I paid for that portrait that keeps me young and beautiful forever, I should hope they last," Emma huffed, flipping her hair over her shoulder. "I shall have to demand a refund if it's not working."

If the next ten years were each like a Fandom-year, thirty would be WAY OLD. Assuming they survived the next end-of-the-world.

"In ten years, I'll have found a magic mirror," Emma decided, wriggling her fingers at him. "'Mirror mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of them all?' Then I can go smite him or her."

"I'm vain," Emma reminded him cheerfully. "Terribly so. Smiting potential threats is, like, on the low-end of 'overreaction.'"

"And what will be your test in ten years? If you're still on the side of Good and Right, or have bowed to the corporate overlords?"
