Medusa has never liked Milliways winters. Cold, snow, ice, cold. With living snakes combining with her mind, she feels herself growing slower, duller; with metal feathers growing out of her skin, it's only her preternatural healing that stops her from getting frostbite every time she goes outside.

It is morning, high mid-morning, with the sun streaming through the window. The very, very shut window - even Medusa's objections to lack of fresh air falter in the face of cold. The Gorgon herself is perched on a chair in front of the glass, staring out across the white landscape as her snakes absorb as much sunlight as possible.

(she is not alone, either; sprawled out in her lap and overcome with the bliss of constant petting is one Master Shreddie. Sun and scritches, nothing better in the whole multiverse)

One noticeable thing about Medusa is that she often has henna tattoos. Across her hands and feet, curling around her legs and arms, edging her face. These tattoos are not always there, of course, but when they are, they are often different.

Medusa is of the firm opinion that normal tattoos would be boring.

So is plain skin, which is why the Gorgon has been spending some time making henna paste in Sam's bathroom. Sift out the power, mix with lemon juice and honey in a ceramic bowl, cover and let set until the dye releases, let the snakes of her hair bob a greeting to the boyfriend as he stands in the door.

"Morning, Luce," she says cheerfully, if a little absently as she poked the paste with a spoon to see if it was ready.

One thing that Sam's room does not lack is books. It might lack in another things (like, style and neatness and consistently open curtains), but it doesn't lack for books.

At the moment, Medusa is considering this to being something of an advantage, which is why the Gorgon can presently be found sitting on the floor, frowning over a book. There may be following the words with a finger and reading out loud (slowly) involved.

There are certainly open curtains and windows involved.

And on this fine, beautiful morning, after dawn, Medusa is outside with a sister, the dogs, and a number of blackened kitchen implements. Blackened from charcoal, which happens when you cook on open fires, but just because it is a regular occurrence doesn't mean that you leave them that way, oh no.

This is why Medusa and Euryale are scrubbing. And chipping.

The dogs, for the record, are either trying to help (licks help! honestly! licks to mistresses' faces!) or sitting from a distance and looking mournful at the lack of attention.

Beyond Milliways' front door is an open area as would grace any farm; chickens in their house, a couple of goats stoped from their quest to eat the vegatables by a cunning wall, a shed and the peach-coloured wall of Medusa's own garden. There is another low building, too low to be anything but built partly under ground, and there are steps leading down to the door.

It's summer, morning, but still well on its way to being hot, even with the breeze coming off the ocean.

There are also dogs - large, rugged things who rush at Meda in a mad welcome-home-dance.






"...possibly I should have mentioned the boys," Medusa tells Atton, a little ruefully.

One day, Medusa (who has entirely forgotten about being told what Valentine's Day is, and that a Certain Someone Forgot) finally decides that Lucifer Needs To Get Out More, and goes to Milliways to kidnap him.

Sam is very much not adverse to this kidnapping, possibly because Medusa is wearing a very pretty bodice.

Beyond Milliways' front door is an open area as would grace any farm; chickens in their house, a couple of goats stoped from their quest to eat the vegatables by a cunning wall, a shed and the peach-coloured wall of Medusa's own garden. There is another low building, too low to be anything but built partly under ground.

It's late afternoon, and actually fairly cool - autumn does that, even in North Africa.

And while she would give him a grand tour of the outside, she does have things cooking in the kitchen, so she leads him down some steps and around the corner. The kitchen is a large cavern, doubling as their main living space, and it is back up against the bathhouse. No sense in wasting heat, after all.

There is a large table in the middle, a working table, and it's a working kitchen for three people who love food and eat a lot.

"Welcome to my home."
