The rest of Sherlock's probationary week is uneventful.

At the end of it, Bella says, "If you are attempting to deceive me in some way, you're clearly operating on a level I can't hope to compete with and are considerably more patient than I. I'm not going to let you into the house, because that's Charlie's house too and I doubt he'd like it, but otherwise as far as I'm concerned I can trust you."
eversomuchfun: Grinning or laughing. (!= all the way to the kettle)

Sherlock grins.

"Pleased to hear it. It'll make the dance of the reheated animal blood slightly more convenient, at least."
eversomuchfun: Smiling slightly. (!= merely an abomination of nature)

"Cheers," he says, takes the jar, and politely turns away.

Slurp.
eversomuchfun: Side-on in the dark; expression not visible. (== a degree of humanity)

When he turns back, the jar is empty and his teeth are just a little pink.

And still human.

In fact, he has never shown fang in all the time they have been acquainted. (There is a sound that accompanies the change. He did not make that sound just now.)
eversomuchfun: Looking ceilingward. (<= hardly very sensitive of you)

"Once again," he says, "I suspect no other vampire has ever been quite so adamant about controlling their instincts."
eversomuchfun: Hands. (== I think that's sorted)

"It was once. I hardly think about it anymore," he says. "And no, regrettably, I do not have a phone. Shortly I will not have a hotel room either."
eversomuchfun: Speaking, perhaps impatiently. (>= do I make myself understood?)

"Insufficient funds," he says dryly. "It's amazing how quickly the cash dries up once you stop killing people for it."
eversomuchfun: Leaning casually against a wall. (== night on the town)

[personal profile] eversomuchfun 2013-02-08 01:37 am (UTC)(link)
"Not yet. Hopefully I will manage something. It's not as though this town lacks nesting grounds. I do prefer my sordid little caves with working electricity, however, which makes the selection a little less broad."
eversomuchfun: Grinning or laughing. (!= all the way to the kettle)

[personal profile] eversomuchfun 2013-02-08 01:40 am (UTC)(link)
"Tea," he says with a flash of a grin. "A terrible vice for a bloodsucker, I know, but I can't help myself."
eversomuchfun: Smiling slightly. (!= merely an abomination of nature)

[personal profile] eversomuchfun 2013-02-08 01:50 am (UTC)(link)
"Not quite," he says. "It's a change from my original but not as much as you might think. During all that accelerated growth, my main source of conversation was a computer whose speech synthesizer was as English as you please. I turned out ninety percent BBC to ten percent New York; it wasn't much trouble to hop to London from there."
eversomuchfun: Upset or uncertain. (>= soul or no soul)

[personal profile] eversomuchfun 2013-02-08 01:53 am (UTC)(link)
"Tony wrote the AI. He was as much of a thinking creature as I am."
eversomuchfun: Thoughtful or possibly menacing. (>= it is up to you how we pass the time)

[personal profile] eversomuchfun 2013-02-08 01:59 am (UTC)(link)
"Correct," he says softly.
eversomuchfun: Side-on in the dark; expression not visible. (== a degree of humanity)

[personal profile] eversomuchfun 2013-02-08 02:11 am (UTC)(link)
"Thank you," he murmurs.
eversomuchfun: Smiling slightly. (!= merely an abomination of nature)

[personal profile] eversomuchfun 2013-02-08 02:14 am (UTC)(link)
When Bella is just stepping onto her driveway, Sherlock appears long enough to say, "Goodnight, fair Juliet."
eversomuchfun: Grinning or laughing. (!= all the way to the kettle)

[personal profile] eversomuchfun 2013-02-08 02:18 am (UTC)(link)
"Does it annoy you? I think it's hilarious," he says cheerfully.
eversomuchfun: Smiling, perhaps falsely. (!= oh yes—hilarious)

[personal profile] eversomuchfun 2013-02-08 02:20 am (UTC)(link)
"How would you describe yourself?"
eversomuchfun: Smiling contentedly, eyes closed. (<= contains no moving parts)

[personal profile] eversomuchfun 2013-02-08 02:22 am (UTC)(link)
"Then I see no reason to stop."
eversomuchfun: Smiling slightly. (!= merely an abomination of nature)

[personal profile] eversomuchfun 2013-02-08 02:27 am (UTC)(link)
"I appreciate the thought, in any case."
eversomuchfun: Grinning or laughing. (!= all the way to the kettle)

[personal profile] eversomuchfun 2013-02-08 02:38 am (UTC)(link)
"Ah, a pragmatist. I'm charmed."
eversomuchfun: Side-on in the dark; expression not visible. (== a degree of humanity)

[personal profile] eversomuchfun 2013-02-08 02:42 am (UTC)(link)
"Goodnight," he says, smiling, and departs.
