Being a superhero can get you out of a lot of things. For instance, most burglars, muggers and the like stay away from you unless they're stupid, in which case they can be good for taking things like PMS out on them. A lot of bars and diners give you free food and drinks (if you're in costume, of course) in echange for keeping the city safe. It can be a pretty sweet deal, really.

Unfortunately, it will not get you out of moving.

And without actual superpowers like super strength or nifty levitation or hell, even an ounce of magical supergrace or something, it leads to things like Captain Liberty banging around as she tries to carry a large box through the halls, occasionally setting/banging it against the wall in order to get a better grip on it, and dropping it when she attempts to get the keys out to #5. (Best not to ask where she's hiding the keys in that getup.)

"Dammit," she says, worrying about the door before bending to pick up the box. "Who knew a box of romance novels would be so heavy?"

[Open for anyone who might have heard the banging.]

Pippi was out for a ride when she heard the banging all the way out on the sidewalk, so she ventures into the building to see what's up.

Leaving Old Man outside of course.

This is fascinating.

Pippi watches this for a bit and then realizes, she's kinda being rude. Even if the woman hasn't noticed her yet.

Pippi reaches out and pushes the headpiece up with an index finger is she'll let her.

"Sure." Pippi said reaching for the door. "You want help with the box too?"

"My pleasure!" Pippi said. "Nice crown."

Pippi tilted her head at the woman and took in her ensemble.

"Are you the Captain Liberty that's teaching the heroing class?"

"From the schedule of classes ya." Pippi nodded. "I thought you'd be a man for some reason."

"Yes. I'm Pippi Longstocking. I signed up for your class. I'm glad you're not a man."

"Oh yes, very much so." Pippi nodded. "That's what the class is about ya?"

Wouldn't that be something? Signing up for heroing class and it turns out to be about crochet and tatting!

"I'm from Sweden... So it would probably be 'truth, justice, and lagom'."

"Great!" Pippi bounced a little. She looked around the apartment. "Is this your secret lair?"

Pippi is slightly disappointed until she remembers that she has way too much money... So, secret lair for her. Yay!

"I don't have a secret lair either."


"But I have a boat."

"The thought had crossed my mind... I've fought pirates in it... Does that count?"

"Hello. Pirates." Pippi said smiling.

"I didn't see any coffee any of the times... And I woulda noticed, 'cause I really like coffee." Pippi said. "But I'll be sure to ask next time."

"Thanks Captain Liberty! Now I know!"
