She is not a woman who enjoys pregnancy, Kate has discovered.

She really, really wants to phase.

Instead, she's distracting herself with bridal magazines that have been heaped upon her by not only her mother, but also Simon's.

Which means there's a really wide range of styles from one page to the next, and every now and then she's not sure if she's looking at something for the wedding ceremony or the honeymoon, but...well, it most definitely serves as distraction.

"Some of your culture frightens me," she informs Simon without looking up when he enters their room.

"Did anything in particular bring on that observation?" He sets down his bag and makes his way toward where she's sitting on the bed, ensconced in a mountain of pillows and surrounded by magazines, and leans to kiss her temple.

"Of course not," he says, blinking at the photo spread she's handed him. "Oh. I -- that is a little extreme."

"What does she say?" He sets the magazine down a little hurriedly, and tilts his head to look at the one Kate's holding.

simon_doctor: (that's not good)

He frowns at the writing, and then at her, in faint puzzlement. "Straighten your hair?"

"You're -- really?" Faintly astonished. "I don't think I've ever seen it anything but straight."

simon_doctor: (not laughing nope)
From: [personal profile] simon_doctor
"I'd like that." He smiles. "Though I'll need detailed instructions if I'm going to be helpful. Unless the kind of help you need is on the level of 'hold this until I ask for it.'"

"No smirking," he reassures her, reaching to help her sit up. "I promise."

"You agreed with me," he protests. Mildly.

"You don't think they'd believe me if I said I was from another universe, I take it?"

"I don't know either, but, ah ... you may have noticed that I'm generally not a very convincing liar."

Faint blueish-green sparks flicker in around his hands, and out again.

He blinks. "They don't know? -- And do you need my help with this part?"

simon_doctor: (how to put this)
From: [personal profile] simon_doctor
"That makes a great deal of sense." Simon turns away from making a neat pile of her discarded shirt and shorts on the laundry hamper, to grab her bathrobe from its hook on the back of the bathroom door.

"Two to one," he repeats, nodding as he takes the bottles from her. "And about how much total?"

From: [personal profile] simon_doctor
"All right," he murmurs, and begins decanting product from the bottles into the palm of his hand, blending the two together with his index finger.

"Would you like to see what I'm doing?"

His hands are gentle in her hair, careful and smooth, gathering the untreated locks together and working the blended product through.

"Tilt your head back a little?"

To Simon, the unfamiliar scent is a vague puzzle rather than a jog to the memory; he's still trying to place it as he finishes spreading the substance through her hair.

"There, that's finished. Do I need to do the next part immediately or can I wash my hands first?"

"Twenty seconds with rose oil isn't the same thing as twenty seconds with bleach," he says with some dignity, over the running water. "That's why I asked."

He finishes wiping his hands, and picks up the device.

Simon's watching in wonder.

And, very gently, he lifts one hand to touch the curly mass.

"I had no idea." He's smiling. "It feels so different."

simon_doctor: (with Kaylee - talking)
From: [personal profile] simon_doctor
He shifts to the side a little, to make it easier for her to face him. "What's dangerous about it?"

Date: 2015-07-12 03:20 am (UTC)
simon_doctor: (Default)
From: [personal profile] simon_doctor
"Oh, I see. Not ... dangerous in itself, just less tidy when that's important."

He's thinking of Zoe's hair, and how she used to tie it into a club or braid it before action, but maybe that's not as easy as it would be with straight hair.

"I really like it," he says honestly, winding one curl around his finger. "It's completely different, but ... it's still beautiful."

simon_doctor: (smiling in sunlight)
From: [personal profile] simon_doctor
"Well," he says, starting to smile again, "that might be one occasion when it wouldn't be so crucial to have hair that won't catch on things?"

"I think it might be."

He kisses her back, gently.
