Valkyrie stood over a pile of diagrams and charts, a pair of glasses barely hanging off her nose as she leaned toward to peer at a specific section like the glasses hardly helped at all. Thoughts formulated like fire crackers in her mind as her brows knit with a sort of intense concentration that almost made her look silly.

He walks into the room, not expecting to find Val, but when he sees her, he smiles even though all his friends really need to stop being geniuses. "Hey, Val." he says, "What's up?"

She delicately tucked a strand of dark hair behind her ear, plucking a quill off of the desk in order to jot something down in her notebook. The sound of River's voice came as a pleasant surprise, causing the girl to straighten quickly and snag the glasses off her face (they were embarassing anyway). "O-Oh, hey~" she said nervously, trying to calm down after being inadvertly startled. "I found a journal belonging to the Grimm Brothers," she said with a excited rush.

"As in, the ones related to you who wrote all the depressing versions of the Disney movies?" he asks, moving closer to her. "What's in it?"

"Well, my family popularized the stories before Walt Disney," she explained and slipped him over the tattered and aged notebook, bound with geniune leather and etched with a W and a J. "All the original tales were very dark - they went around to farms to visit the people and collected stories that had never been written down for generations - which is why the stories can sometimes vary." She gently tapped the off-white page of the journal. "Only downside is that the entire thing was written in some old-style broken German. It may take me months to decode."

"Months? Gross." he says, the idea of putting so much effort into something unappealing. "Surely there must be a spell for that. Or maybe one of the others can help?" he suggests, referring to their friend group. "I don't know anything about old German but I'm sure one of those nerds do."

"I know," she said softly and stood back with a thoughtful expression, brows furrowed as she went over her options. "A spell would be lovely," she murmured before moving around the table to inspect a diagram from the other side. "I don't want to bother them." As she moved, she whacked her knee unceremoniously against the heavy oak table and yelped. She grabbed for her knee with a sour expression, little flames licking from her palms and singing the entire knee out of her jeans. "You have to be kidding me," she muttered and patted the fire out with a sigh.

When he sees the small flames, his eyes go wide and he rushed over to her. "Whoa, whoa, whoa there. Let's maybe not set ourseves on fire? You okay?" he asks.

The smell of burnt fabric caused her nose to wrinkle distastefully, her eyes still blazing with an inhuman harpy-likeness despite her facial features remaining entirely normal. Val delicately lifted her palms and gently turned them over to reveal absolutely no harm caused, a shy smirk tugging at her lips. "I'd be more worried about you and this room - I have an immunity to my own fire." It was a surprise that she had the ability to even create the flame but recalled faint memories of practicing the ability every day for years. "Sorry" she said off-handedly and gingerly rubbed at her bare knee, looking down a little shamefully. "Sometimes I can't control it if I get angry..."

"Don't worry about me." he says, flashing an award-winning smile. "Getting set on fire seems... lit." He laughs at his own pun. "Maybe you should practice getting it under control then? All in the best interest of, you know, not being a living fire hazard."

She quirks an unimpressed brow and finally starts to gather up some bundled scrolls. "I'll get right on that. Maybe in the meantime I'll hang a caution: explosive sign around my neck." She snagged the journal and glanced temporarily up at River before directing her impassive gaze down at the writing.

He pouts when she doesn't appreciate the pun, and peers at the writing over her shoulder even though he can't understand it. "Do it. It'll be a fashion statement and that way people will know you're hot in more ways than just one."

Valkyrie underlined a specific sentence with her quill, gaze temporarily slipping up to catch him looking over her shoulder. "Where would I even get one?" she asked before wondering why she was even curious in the first place. It wasn't like she was about to go seek it out. Plus, she had other tools to cause the populace to think she was hot (if it was something she actually cared about). "I can just use my veela abilities on the opposite gender and natural charm on the ladies," she pointed out and then touched the sentence she had highlighted before with her indez finger. "This is the original story of Cinderella. Would you like to hear what I've translated so far?"

"Hit me," he says, nodding. "How different is it from the cartoon?" he adds, out of curiosity.

"Well," she said and ran her finger along the writing that belonged to her ancestor, goosebumps gently prickling all visible parts of her skin. "In the original Cinderella, one of the ugly stepsisters cut off her big toe to fit into the golden - not glass - slipper with the intention to fool the prince. When caught, she was returned to the ugly step mother who then instructed her second daughter to cut off her heel because only her toes would fit in the shoe. Her logic was that when her daughter became queen, she would not need to walk anywhere ever again."

He winces as she tells the story. "That's... morbid." he says, "I'm assuming that plan didn't work either and Cinderella got her happily ever after?"

"Yes, actually," she said and turned the page to the next story, her face tilting up to peer at the boy. "She punished her mother and stepsisters by getting pigeons to peck out their eyes.

"That's... not very Disney." he remarks, meeting her gaze. "So, is there supposed to be some sort of hidden message or code in the thing you're translating? Or are you just gonna be reading a bunch of Rated PG-13 fairytales?"

Valkyrie couldn't help but smirk, her dark gaze dropping to the page before her. "I'm hoping that there is," she admitted and flipped to the back of the journal to show him more gibberish language. "Here. I can make out some sort of message that has nothing to do with stories. It almost looks like numbers? Or possibly a sequence of words? I don't know." She looked pretty invested despite her short-comings and was actually appreciative that River seemed to be interested in what she was doing.
