It took Juliet a moment to realize where she was when she woke up. The room was too small, the bed too narrow, and the light ... the light was distinctly not flattering.

There was probably no one at the reunion to bring her her usual cup of tea in bed, either.

She grumbled to herself a bit as she rummaged around to find some clothes. She would have booked a hotel room, but she'd decided on a lark to stay in the dorms to blend in. Stupid decision; the TV show was between seasons, so she wasn't even going to get some footage of herself with old school friends as a reward. She'd asked them to make an exception and send out a cameraman with her, but they said she wasn't even the chief ratings draw anymore. It was absurd -- even if she wasn't the one with an advice book on the bestseller list just then, she was still the only Darling they had.

Once she was dressed, she'd have to call home to check that the nanny was getting Colette to her Saturday baby ballet class, and not making excuses about how Colette wasn't even walking properly yet. Motherhood was such a chore.

Twenty years and some healthy growing further apart later, and Jeremy still wasn't much for knocking on Juliet's door. Not when the door was cracked, and he could just open it and poke his (already slightly, if stylishly, graying) head in.

"Did we really used to live here?"

In these tiny, tiny rooms.

Really, it would have stunned Juliet if he had knocked. He got a distracted smile as she adjusted her scarf in the mirror. "I think so," she said. "At the time I saw it as a grand adventure in living like a 'real person' remember? I don't know how we fit."

"As far as I cab remember, we barely did," Jeremy mused as he slipped into the room and took a look around. "Was it good for us? I don't know if I want Leo to have to live in a matchbox like this when he goes to school."

"Colette's going to go to a day school in the city," Juliet decided firmly. "I don't think coming here was awful, and it taught us tolerance and all of that, but I think being hidden away like this was very bad for my self-esteem."

It had since rebounded and then some.

"Well, you belong in the limelight, sis," Jeremy replied, absently considering flopping down on her bed even if that would crumple up his suit. "You always did. And a tiny island off the coast of Maryland does not fit in that description."

"It was a speedbump on the road to fame," Juliet said pragmatically, as if a far bigger roadblock hadn't been her complete lack of talent. "I think we've recovered, anyhow. Even if I can't remember the last time I was in Maryland for any other reason."

"Maryland is just not that important," Jeremy said, as he compromised and took a seat at the edge of her bed. And wow, had they seriously been this narrow? "I don't think I ever really found out if there was more to this state than Fandom."

"Baltimore has some decent clubs," Juliet said absently, sitting beside him. "A little rustic, but not horrible if you're desperate. But besides that ... I think it's all suburbs."

"I couldn't live in the suburbs." At least he didn't get anxiety attacks when he went to Brooklyn anymore, but he still preferred Manhattan over everything else, honestly.

He looked over at her. "So, who are we expecting to see today?"

"Don't know, I'm so bad about staying in touch," Juliet said. "I hope Tony Stark made it. Maybe Sov, but they're from so far from here I'm not sure I can expect that. Anyone I should keep an eye out for for you?"

"Steph, maybe?" Jeremy replied, shrugging. He hadn't been amazing about staying in touch either. "I'm pretty sure I'll only think of names when I see the people."

"And if you can't remember them, we can just be subtle and check nametags," Juliet said. "The cursed things have a function."
