Nadezhda was at this point feeling relief at the celebrity news having moved on to bigger and better things, like Beyonce and her photo shoot and what a mess that was, et cetera. It was better than being in the eye of Central City, though that really deserved to go to the Flash, since he was their resident hero anyway. She was currently enjoying her return to somewhat anonymity, from most people anyway.
<p>
Even though she was still angry with her parents for being...well, criminals (though wasn’t that hypocritical of her) she still cared about them so she checked in at her childhood home, which was her parents’ house in the first place. Mainly just to water the plants, make sure everything was ship shape, that sort of thing.
<p>
She had had some sort of contact with them anyway, mainly through their lawyers; She knew her dad was going to be released from jail pretty soon here, and that this meant that her mom was going to return to the states within a few months.
<p>
That would be interesting with Andrei back in the city again; one big happy family, that’s what they were, right? She could just see a row happening within the next few weeks between Andrei and their parents. That was how things usually seemed to go. She was lost in thought on these possible future events, so at first she didn’t notice some of the individuals on the street. Unsavory types that didn’t usually hang around here.
<p>
She really didn’t need to go through another damsel routine, Naz thought, seeing one of them heading toward her. So she strode confidently forward, playing an odd game of chicken until they came face to face. <t>“Can I help you?”</t> Naz asked, sounding impatient.
<p>
“Yeah, maybe get off your high horse, for one.” Was the response of the slightly older looking man. “For two, we’re taking over so ya’d best step off.” Nadezhda looked confused at that statement. <t>“What?”</t> She asked, completely unaware of what he was talking about. <t>“I don’t kn-”</t> before she could explain herself, she was cut off. “Look, we’re expanding our territory, so be a good girl and don’t get in our way.”
<p>
<t>“I’m not-”</t> Nadezhda said, trying to explain again that she wasn’t the one in charge of this sort of turf war thing and that inheriting her father’s empire wasn’t her bag. “Are you still trying to throw down with us?” The man said, clearly not caring to hear her explanation. <t>“Uh, no.”</t> Nadezhda said, trying to side-step the guy and clearly not intimidated by the man. “Where d’ya think you’re going?” She found herself blocked on both sides.
<p>
Hopefully she could clear things up before this caused a scene, more than it already had.

Central City was often abound with rumors; ever since metahumans became a big problem for them, every other week there was some other average Joe displaying powers….or at least, there were claims of so and so displaying the ability to summon lightning, teleport, super strength, etc. You named it and somewhere, well, someone would tell you that they had <i>heard</i> of a person using it.
<p>
Ninety-nine percent of the time, unless this was coupled with a confirmed Flash sighting, this sort of thing could usually be taken with a grain of salt and brushed off; it was one comfort in the world that even if a normal person found out about her ability, likely unless they had the foresight to quickly record it happening she was currently still going to be in the ‘safe’ category, as far as knowledge about her powers went.
<p>
This also meant the gossip and rumor mills were filled to the brim with the strange happenings and the like, and one of them had piqued her interest. She’d heard from a friend of a friend of a friend that a very gorgeous, androgynous person (assumed to be male), would show up at the Blackwell, one of Central’s upper class hotels, play on the piano for a few hours and then leave. The strange thing about it was the music he played was considered so beautiful, many people couldn’t help but to listen, or feel emotion when he did so.
<p>
It was a strange rumor to be hearing, and seeing as she had a gap in her schedule to go and check it out, she didn’t see the problem with it. Hey, it was something to do that was all in good fun; at the worst, she’d see no one and that wasn’t that big of a deal. At best, she’d probably find a moderately attractive man playing the piano decently enough, and thus once more prove the rumors mostly untrue.
<p>
When she arrived around the rumored time, she didn’t see anyone there. She did, however, see a very nice baby grand piano. And...goodness, were those real ivory keys? Swanky. She just had to try it out for herself, and decided to play a piece she was familiar with. She didn’t think the mystery man would show up, after all.

Nadezhda jogged over to the cafe where she was meeting Darcie for lunch; one of her few friends who she considered a treasure, since the other girl was one of the few people willing to be seen in public with her. Everything was a Scandal nowadays, though luckily it was starting to blow over for the moment, though her Dad was about to get out of holding (as they couldn’t hold him indefinitely and still hadn’t found much in the way of hard evidence to charge him with).
<p>
Another thing to think about, especially since Andrei had breezed back into town. Hilariously, he was actually pretty similar to their Dad, which was probably why the two of them fought a lot of the time. Those were thoughts for another time, however. As was the stray thought about the issue of her own powers; she wanted to help, of course, but her powers were completely non-combat capable.
<p>
On one hand, she could pretty much make anything she wanted, so if she got the drop on someone, there wasn’t much they could do stop her; her power moved at the speed of thought, after all. That was where the probably truly lay, and mastering control of that aspect would be rather tricky to do. She’d have to figure out how to control her own way of thinking while drawing, and that was no easy task. She had confidence that she could master it, however.
<p>
Arriving slightly before Darcie, she placed her own order, waiting for her friend to show up. She now had to ask her friend about the relationship with Lex; Nadezhda was very curious about how that had happened, though she couldn’t fault Darcie for taste. Objectively, Lex was fairly attractive and he was a self-made man, so those were already quite a few points in his favor.
<p>
She’d have to ask the blonde about it when the other girl arrived. Not to mention a few photographs, if the girl could spare any, for reference work or just general practice. Nadezhda also sincerely wished to talk to her friend about her new found ability, but she still had never been able to snag a conversation with the Flash (though apparently he had time to talk at length with Iris West, which was an interesting connection).
<p>
There wasn’t really anyone else she could chat with; most other metahumans weren’t on the good side of the law, or they had super tech. Or they had died. So, that was a predicament. She was soon roused from this line of thought when her friend arrived.
<p>
<t>“Darcie!”</t> Nadezhda exclaimed in delight. <t>“It’s been far too long since we’ve had a proper conversation. How are things going?”</t> Nadezhda started out with, curious to see what the girl was doing with her time.

Merry Christmas! I don't really have a wishlist, though I do enjoy various things; art supplies are always appreciated, so is jewelry. I like the theater and stuff like that, so tickets to any show (Hamilton is getting good reviews, I'd like to see it) would be lovely to receive.

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!

Well, her current plans were going nowhere and for now she’d have to take a break from her classes; her focus was scattered at best and though she’d been under worse stress, usually that stress went away after the performance and after they’d celebrated with strong drinks. This sort of thing did not disappear. Initially, she’d been looking forward to attending; while she didn’t necessarily see eye to eye with Luthor’s ideas, she wasn’t the one in charge of the business front of things, so that didn’t amount to much. In addition, the actual events listed out seemed like they would be fun.
<p>
Her family had been invited, of course. This was before the news had broken to her and the general media about how fully illicit her father’s activities had been, and with her brother off and away again, she’d been left to deal with that frenzy alone. Though with the event being a masquerade and all, she could continue to wear a mask for the night to prevent any sort of interest with the press. Besides, she was one of many attendees, and surely the host of the event was going to be the focus of their attention. She also admitted that he had excellent taste, and she had wished she could’ve found a full period costume to go in.
<p>
However, finding a more conventional look from any designer was hard, as apparently they’d decided that Roccoco, or the end of the Baroque era, was where to go. At least, as far as the dresses she’d been able to find, and getting a custom order done in such a short amount of time was not happening. As it was, she’d been able to find a tasteful, more modern piece to attend the event in, and everything else fell into place from there.
<p>
She’d gone with a dragon mask, which stood out in it’s own way. Though from her perspective, if you were going to attend a masquerade, you may as well go all out. What was the point in even dressing up if you weren’t going to embrace the costume aspect as well? Though maybe that was the Thespian in her speaking. She didn’t have a plus one to speak of, since to her knowledge she was still the only family member in town with free time. She’d arrived a little after seven and decided to explore the rooms.
<p>
She noted Lola had appeared and decided to stay safely away from the woman and her distinctly scented self. Lola was often akin to teenage girls and pre-teen boys; under the misconception that a lot of perfume or cologne made them desirable, when in actuality, it often made others gag on the strong, wafting aroma they’d left in their wake. Hmmm, the hedge maze could be fun to do, even if she was on her own.
<p>
Part of her still wished that at least her brother would show up, though she thought that was unlikely. He’d gone on the road for two years and was outwardly more of a rebel in the family, plus she was sure he was still overseas. Or at least he was, to her knowledge, still there on vacation.
<p>
Still, she would enjoy her time here, even if she was all by herself.
