*She's in the library, searching for a book. She's reread all the Shakespeare, you see, and the Greek tragedy, and Lucy's wretched Jane Austen, and even Marcus Aurelius, and she has no idea what to read next. Someone to either recommend a book to her or distract her from her curret, book-less state would be nice.*

*Victor, still a little pale, a little thin, a little haunted-looking, has been perusing the shelves in search of something not in the least related to science, perhaps one of the books of poems Elizabeth is so fond of, or the studies on languages that absorb Clerval's attention. He is (as he has so often been) absorbed in his own thoughts, and so stops just short of running into Mina, looking for a moment like a startled animal as he realizes the presence of another there. Then he calms, makes a bow, smiles* Good afternoon, madam. Are you looking for something?

*She sees the haunted look in his eyes, and that makes her inclined to be kind. And so she gives him her most friendly smile* Good afternoon. I'm not looking for anything specific, simply a new book to read. *pause* I'm afraid I don't remember your name.

Victor Frankenstein. And you are Mrs. Harker, correct? I fear I cannot recommend much but scientific texts these days, and I would not recommend those to many. I came here hoping to find something else myself.

Oh, yes, I remember! And I am Mrs. Harker. *ooh, discussion of books. Fun.* Scientific texts can get tiresome after a while. I would recommend Aristophanes to you, if you're looking for light reading, but the jokes can be rather indeciferable unless you're highly familiar with Athenian history. One of Shakespeare's comedies is probably our best choice.

Shakespeare. *smiles faintly* Elizabeth has always been fond of him. It has been years since I've read any of his work.

*Smiles back* She has good taste, then. Who is she, if I may ask? *pause* It's marvelous, it really is, and improves upon rereading.

She's -- well, I'm afraid it gets a bit complex. *sheepish smile* So I have been told. I do recall liking him, before I got so . . . absorbed in my studies.

You need not tell me then. *pause* If your studies do not even allow you time to read Shakespeare, then perhaps you need not be quite so absorbed in them.

I've come to that conclusion, yes. *and it's a good thing Victor's recovered a little since coming to the mansion, as there was a time when he would have dissolved into tears about now. as is, his smile falters only a little*

*Notices the smile falter, and though she doesn't completely understand, she knows that there's something more serious behind all this. Her voice, therefore is gentler* And I'm sure you will be the better for it.

Yes. Things have already improved. *smiles again, comforted by her tone -- Victor tends to associate the presence of women with comfort, with soothing and goodness and gentleness* What else do you like to read?
