Re: Private Lessons

Kolin shrugged as he took a seat on the side of his bed. "I won't mind either especially." Particularly as the alternative would be chomping down on one of the nutrient bars he'd stuffed in his bag before leaving. Interdimensional packaging was a lovely thing; if it could be commercialized, there we...

Re: Private Lessons

It had been a while since Kolin had gotten anything like a massage; the knots that began to loosen under Freya's care had knots built up over more than just one long flight. "Aahhhh..." He let out a groan, and then a purr, at the dragoness' healing touch. "Mmm... I think you're going to have to add ...

Re: Private Lessons

Kolin was more than happy to dismiss these dark reflection on his own society, rather quickly and easily, considering the way darkness in a foreign country possessed some of his mental real estate at almost every waking hour. Freya might have been able to place this attitude in historical context as...

Re: Private Lessons

Still holding the bags, Kolin kicked open the door to the cabin. The act made a rather satisfying bang , and seemed to blow off a bit of steam for the hybrid. "I'm sorry I had to share that part of my life with you, if it comes to that. I was probably a little too mean to her, to tell you the truth....

Re: Private Lessons

Yvette blinked at Freya's pitying tone, before breaking out into a guffaw that suggested her original species had been something along the donkey line. "Eehawha! You're having a laugh, aren't ya? Nobody's born with nasal smokers. Good ob on you getting them to work on ya without getting choked out t...

Re: Private Lessons

Kolin sucked a breath through his teeth, but was not long in giving an answer. "We'll tell them that we've started dating, which is technically true. I mean, we just agreed to our first, right? No need to say anything else; it'll keep the rumor mill at least somewhat honest." Whether that rumor mill...

Re: Private Lessons

"Oh, I have full confidence in your ability as a teacher." Kolin hasten to reassure her between wing-flaps. "It's my ability as a student that I'm uncertain of. I don't have a demonstrated ability to work well with others, at least, not right off the bat." How warranted this social insecurity was Fr...

Re: Private Lessons

By this point, the pair were beginning to exit the skyspace of Bayreuth city proper. A huge emphasis on vertical engineering and land use maximization over the past century in Gawain had more or less tamed urban sprawl, but in central metropoli like this one the damage had been done already. Suburbs...

Re: Private Lessons

The historically-minded Kolin did in fact catch the reference to archaic technology. Car culture was another one of those dead cultural tropes so beloved by Edwinian historians, most of whom came from the intellectual class who despised the hicks that clung to their gas guzzlers. Irony was lost amon...

Re: Private Lessons

Kolin shrugged, a maneuver of no small dexterity when airborne. "I left a note saying that I was going out to the woods for a few days with you. Part of the reason we're dropping by the cabins is for verisimilitude. Now, I expect I'll have to be much more elaborate when we get back , but who knows."...

Re: Private Lessons

(Forum keeps eating my replies, bleah) He'd been up since the sunrise, long enough to shake all the tiredness out of his bones and body. Combine that with being a natural morning fur, Kolin was actually chipper as he took off alongside Freya. "Oh, there's a set of cabins my family has a standing res...

Re: Private Lessons

Kolin was waiting on the rooftop when Freya arrived, doing warm-up stretches in the sunrise. The sight would have made for a good banner ad for some outdoors-wear company, accompanied by some pithy statement about seizing the day. The hybrid was certainly aiming to seize this one, packed up and wash...

Re: Private Lessons

It was relieving for Zechariah to have confirmation that bygones were indeed bygones. Upon hearing of fresh generations deserving a chance, though, the image of the student in question was brought to the forefront of his mind. He took a deep breath, almost akin to a sigh. "Well... I suppose. One mus...

Re: Private Lessons

Zechariah seemed unfazed by Freya's teasing; being an old dragon, he'd rather gotten used to such things. "Oh, I remember. But you will forgive an old friend for wanting to retain some surprises for his- friends?" There was a slight pause before the last word, a betrayal of past conflicts. Dragons, ...

Re: Private Lessons

Zechariah steepled his fingers right in front of his chin, in a gesture that Freya would likely have found familiar. The old dragon was clearly hesitant to give out too much information, but knew the request was a fair one. "Raymon assures me his communications are secure, but I hope you will forgiv...
