>"Maybe it sounds stupid, but what about leaving little notes around your apartment? Or pictures, you like taking pictures, right?" - Kat nodded, shifting the pen pieces around on the top of the desk, glancing up - "Tape up things that might ground you. Notes to yourself about what's important, where you are, messages to remind you that you're going to be okay."
Kat nodded again, slowly, thinking. There was a whole wall of photos she'd taken, in her room - but it was all random stuff, nothing that really made any difference when she woke up. If she changed out some of the pictures, maybe that would help. She just had to figure out what would work, and come up with some kind of portable version, for hotels, like now, because China didn't have her exact apartment, and she'd still need something there...
"Doesn't sound too stupid, to me," she said with a shrug, "At this point, I'll try almost anything."
The note thing sounded a little harder to pull off, because how was she supposed to come up with something to snap herself out of crazy panic mode? She wasn't that good with words, that wasn't her thing.
"I really don't think I can write anything that'll work, though. Words are hard. Write me something." ...which was probably a bad idea, wasn't it? She was basically asking him to give her a thing to help her keep calm and, okay, it wasn't as if that wasn't kind of why she was here in the first place, and it wasn't like he and River hadn't already done that, once, but... it was still weird. Probably. "Kidding," she added quickly, backtracking on the unintentional weird, "You don't have to. I'll try the pictures thing, though. That's probably a good idea."
