Tammy snaps out of it immediately and smiles at Emily, "Huh? Oh, I was just thinking. I don't think there is any reason you couldn't still make a career out of your music. You could start, like, just over the internet or even self-publishing a disc. You could even put an actual picture of yourself on the cover, and people would just think it was art, then like, if you do a live show or something people will see that it's actually you, which would be a hella big deal."

"And I was reminded of what you said earlier about having to hide, and stuff, so."

Emily rubs a hand on the back of her head.  "Maybe... I don't know if risking exposure is really worth it though.   I'm still not convinced this whole thing isn't going to end with them lining us up on a wall somewhere you know?  As a general rule if you stay out of sight you live longer."

Rena's head tilts, then she looks rapidly between Emily and Tammy in confusion.

Tammy takes her time and chooses her words carefully, clearly mulling them over as she says them, "I don't think you're wrong to worry about that or anything, but like, I also don't think that the people here would do that. I think, if anything, if that were to happen, I think maybe the staff would be lined up with us."

Then she shakes off the melancholy thought and smiles at Emily, "But I also think that things would work out. Some of us are bulletproof, and I can heal people who get hurt."

Emily opens her mouth but closes it with a shrug.  "It's not important right now.  What are you working on anyway?"

"We were just going to paint some still life. I mostly work with dry media, and Rena prefers wet, so I thought I would take advantage of that and expand my repertoire a lil' bit," Tammy says.

"W-wait a minute, what are you two talking about?" Rena asks, her nerves clearly having been pricked by the morbid topic as she wrings her hands.

"That's cool."

Emily glances at Rena with her hands carefully raised and a placating tone in her voice.  "Nothing important.  I just don't really trust that the system's going to actually work in our favor that's all.  Tammy's more of an optimist."

"People haven't been very nice to Emily since her quirk manifested," Tammy explains, "It's been safer for her to not trust anyone, until now."

This information does not compute in Rena's brain.

"B-but she's so pretty! And talented! And and... GAH!" she says, flailing her hands around spastically.

"Who says I trust any of you?" Emily gives Tammy a blank stare until her mouth slowly splits into a teasing grin.

For Rena she just shakes her head.  "Try telling that to the Humanity for Humans crowd."  Her shoulders roll in a helpless shrug.  "The world is the way it is.  It doesn't matter if it's unfair its just reality."

"I know this, I really do, but it's just... infuriating!"

Rena sighs, making a gesture with both hands as if sweeping away the negativity, then she looks at Emily out of narrowed eyes for about half a second. Then her eyes widen along with a creeping grin before she comes over and suddenly takes one of Emily's hands in both of hers.

"Emily, this might be a bit forward, but," she says in a somewhat slow and breathy voice as she leans slowly closer, "I would dearly love it if you would consent to being painted."

There's a slight flinch As Rena reaches for her hand but Emily relents and lets it happen.  "Well... I guess I already told Tammy that she could draw me and all so sure I guess.  It would be kind of hypocritical to say no now right?  As long as there's no plans to run around showing this off and telling people that I exist."

Tammy bursts into soft laughter, "You look like you got dumped, Rena."

Rena does in fact pout like her heart is broken.

"I suppose it can't be helped," she says with a drawn out sigh, and then suddenly whirls and points a finger at Tamera, "So instead, I challenge you to an art duel. Emily will decide which portrait is the best!"

"This isn't the kind of thing I get any say in is it?"  Her eyes flit back and forth between the two and she heaves an exaggerated sigh.  "What do you need me to do?"

"Just strike a pose for us and hold it, something interesting. I can get you a chair, maybe some fancier clothes, anything you would like to pose with. Would you like some music in the background? You'll need to hold the pose for at least half an hour."

"Ummm..."  Emily pauses almost overwhelmed.  "I can do that.  Clothes are... Up to you I guess?  I don't really have a lot and I stick with stuff that covers as much of me as possible for obvious reasons."  She picks at frayed edges of her red hoodie before and stares at the ground.

"Don't say that! Most still life of people is... well... nude." Tammy interjects with a concerned cringe.

Rena snaps her fingers angrily... a facade that lasts for all of two-thirds of a second, tops.

"The clothes you have on now are fine, really, but I'd love to see you in a dress."

"I... could try it I guess?  If you've got something that fits okay I guess.  That's not really in my wardrobe for pretty obvious reasons." She gives an almost embarrassed shrug as she looks anywhere but the two artists.

Tammy tugs on Rena's sleeve rapidly to get her attention, "Hey Rena, do you have a sewing machine?"

Rena's eyes slowly get big again, "I do! I'll bring it tomorrow. But for now, we'll paint!"
