    Nycca does allow her, gently humming and watching her doze.

    Talina will sleep for a fair bit, since she was more tired than she admitted, and makes no move to stop snuggling Nycca when she wakes up.

    Talina smiles back, and doesn't seem to mind that Nycca's been watching her sleep.

    ((Do you want to do the next song, or should I? I have one where she could reveal her intentions to someone; it could be Talina unless you want the reveal to be in the Bowie song, but perhaps using this song as the reveal and having Nycca's part in the Bowie song be a monologue.))
    She smiles.
    That's good.
    She hugs her gently.

    Talina returns both the smile and the hug, nodding.

    Talina nods, holding her gently, and looking somewhat uncertain as to what she should do at the moment, other than agree, since the nuzzling seems to confirm her suspicions about how Nycca feels, but she doesn't want to act on that if she's wrong.

    "Of course."

    Marina's voice comes from the other side of the door.
    "Come down for dinner, you two! Talina, I know you're in there, and you don't want to miss pierogies with bacon and onions."
    ((Let's be honest, nobody wants to miss that!))

    With that, Talina goes to pick up Nycca and carry her out of the room.

    Talina probably remains holding Nycca through the movie, if the bat-fey doesn't seem to mind.

    Talina simply grins at those who do, not particularly caring who knows that she's fond of Nycca.

    Talina smiles, kissing the top of Nycca's head, and staying there for a few minutes, though soon enough, she goes to carry the bat-fey up to their room for the talk that her friend asked for.

    "If you mean what I think you do... Then yes, I would."

    With that, Talina slowly, so as to give Nycca plenty of time to stop her if she's somehow misinterpreting things, goes to kiss her friend.

    ((I suspect that in this case, it may be player error... The vibe I got from that was that Nycca is rather unhappy with life, what they just did didn't do what she'd hoped it would, and she's not interested in staying alive.))

    ((No, you got it right; Nycca, though, was [very, very unrealistically] hoping Talina would sympathize with her and support her decision; Talina's [pretty much correct] reaction made her realize that's not the case.
    EDIT: Also, her intimacy with Talina wasn't intended to stop her from offing herself, more like a "last chance to do this before I go".))

    "No, you... should have told me, but... It's not easy to... find out that one of your friends is planning to kill themselves... especially when it's partly your fault."

    And even more especially when you're as fond of that friend as Talina is, and you've been given reason to think that it's possible you're going to get into a relationship with them.

    In any case, her voice is weak and somewhat ragged, cracking in places, and occasionally punctuated with sniffling.
