Then shall the Queen again sit down; and after her, the people also".

A Beauty Overblown (Krasota)

It is the summer and the heat is making Lumiere and Son feel lazy - 'lets make a Russian pop video for Zemfira ' they say. After several hours working on an elaborate story board with a cast of thousands and much dramatic action they realise there is no need for lights, camera, action as they have something in the can already that fits perfectly.

Whilst Lumiere slips out to the garden for a quick smoke Son is busy tidying up the blog 'we have to have everything ship shape for when Michael’'s piece is published' Son says to nobody in particular. Returning through the window Lumiere suggests 'perhaps whilst we are sorting out the credits we should post one final piece'”. Son looks concerned 'won’t people be confused and think the project is starting again',” '“no' replies Lumiere 'it will be the frosting on the cake'. 'Icing, –it is icing not frosting”' Son mutters. 'Indeed' says Lumiere smiling 'just my little joke'.
