finances

Isabella manages, by the liberal use of cloudpine travel, assorted magic, and her alethiometer, to acquire possession of a parking garage each in Manhattan and Los Angeles.

Into these she has Adarin place a portal set.

And then she mixes up a batch of suitably witchy ink that she'll be able to identify as authentic later, marks up a bunch of pieces of paper with it, and walks into: a bank.

Adarin's welcome to come along, if he likes...

Which, as it happens, he does. Both for the practical purpose of possibly providing portal based advice, and because it seems like the sort of thing that would be fun to attend.

Adarin finds the odd looks hilarious. He doesn't say so, and he doesn't laugh, but it's kind of obvious.

Amused, he says, "Hello and good day, sir! Thank you, but I don't require anything at the moment - you can help the lovely witch beside me."

Credit will go to Isabella, and he's of the opinion that it's better that he is as visibly hands-off on portal capitalism as possible. That way, no one connects the dots. Thus, Isabella gets to do the talking.

"There is indeed a hole in the wall that goes a very long distance from one place to another," informs Adarin. "It's entirely safe, I was her test subject for walking through it. You go in one side in one part of the country, end up on the other side somewhere completely different."

He was technically her test subject. In that he made the portals and then tested them himself to be extra sure. It counts.

"If you were to accept, I think she is also willing to listen to input on which cities are next added to the hub, though any actual additions will be up to her discretion alone," Adarin adds.

Adarin tries very hard not to laugh. He manages, but he can't help but smile a little. "If you would not like to give her the loan, we can always go to another bank. I'm sure she will not be offended if you find the venture unlikely for success and don't want to risk your company. It's hard to offend a witch."
prodigal_miser: (d. I see what you did there)

Up Adarin goes, as well. He's so incredibly pleased with his witch.

Her boyfriend thinks she is allowed to be as almost insufferably smug as she likes. She is taking over the world with portal economics, she gets to be smug. He walks beside Isabella's floating cloudpine, obviously extremely happy. He's not smug, but he's not exactly subtle about his opinion of these events.

Soon enough, they arrive. The portal is absurdly easy to pick out; it ripples like water, but anyone can see what's on the other side - definitely not a parking garage at all. It's large enough for both cars and pedestrians together - there is even a conscientious little section of wall dividing them that ends part of the ways up in the portal. This is to prevent the obvious problem of people getting run over by cars.

"Would you like me to go first?" asks Adarin. "As proof of concept."

prodigal_miser: (c. What a pleasant surprise)

[personal profile] prodigal_miser 2014-04-26 05:01 am (UTC)(link)
Adarin nods. "So it can be easily expanded."

Then, through the portal he goes. It's like walking through normal air, though the ripples of the portal react accordingly to a person walking through them, like he stepped through some really agreeable floating water. From the other side, he waves, clearly visible and perfectly fine.

"Soon enough there will be portals to other locations, too, but Isabella has yet to secure where they would go," adds Adarin. "All accessible from the hub."

Okay, now he's maybe just a little smug, too. They can have a smugness party.

How wonderfully sensible of her. What's even more sensible is that both the stairwell door and the drive-in entrance will just not open to anyone that isn't Adarin or Isabella when it's locked. The lock might be picked, but the door pays attention to whether or not the key was used, and the person using it. There will be no mistakes.

Adarin loves magic.

To the bank they go.

Adarin's perfectly happy to accompany her for both of those, as well. Partially because he is Portal Safety Demonstration Man and partially because watching Isabella take over the world is incredibly enjoyable. Plus, unspeakably delicious ravioli. He is on board for everything here, this is a ton of fun.

He'll save the maniacal cackling for when they're home. They're going to take over the world.

That's impressive, because he is delighted and gets started on the maniacal cackling rather quickly. Isabella's even picked up and spun around, for good measure.

"We," he declares, "are going to take over the world. Then we are going to fix it."

Then he's lost to the maniacal cackles.

"Absolutely absurd amounts of money," agrees Adarin, giggling. "We'll have the resources necessary to house thousands of people and give them comfortable lives. We can go planet shopping for superior Mars alternatives and not have to worry about anyone interfering and messing up what will be a delightfully well-structured system. Hell, we will be able to colonize Mars or a superior alternative with people from here that need it and just not deal with governments that don't meet human rights standards. I have the resources required to study magic and science combinations in order to improve lives in general."
