Re: Private Lessons

Freya would find all eyes upon her as she related her recent reading. Gil, for his part, hung back a little from the conversation, but his eyes shone with focus and attention. Kolin was curious as ever, and Zechariah... was at first impassive and enigmatic, as was usual for him. Slowly, however, the...

Re: Private Lessons

Following close behind, Kolin caught Freya's eye roll and patted her on her shoulder. "I think he's just a little too excited about what he wants to show to rise to your bait. Some of ma's researchers get like that when they want to show off a breakthrough." Once the magnitude of what Zechariah had ...

Re: Private Lessons

Zechariah nodded. "Yes, I'd been wanting to show you them myself. In fact, you'd have had to wait for me in any case. You'll see why." Gesturing for the group to follow him, the dragon led the way down the hallway into the basement stairs, relating all the way. "At its height, the Unseen University ...

Re: Private Lessons

Gil's eyes and ears perked up when Freya mention Miles. Kolin's reaction was more delayed, as his mind had to put all the pieces together before it dawned on him. "Miles von Wexlar? The diminutive savant? Legendary military figure of the dawn of the Hapsburg dynasty? That Miles?" Any Gawainian with ...

Re: Private Lessons

Gil blinked. "Oh, didn't know you were that old." Kolin couldn't help but interject with a grin. "She sure doesn't look it." For the first time, Gil's attention was directed towards the hybrid. "You! Who are you?" "Kolin von Drake, fellow student." The technocrat stuck out his hand to shake the lank...

Re: Private Lessons

Gil shrugged. "Only the fist time, I could take it out later on command." He sighed and leaned back, grunting as one of his joints popped. From the looks of him, he'd been going through puberty for the better part of a century, which could not have been fun. "Don't know if they meant it to be perman...

Re: Private Lessons

For all his apparent surliness, Gil was surprisingly willing to talk. It might just have been a lack of socialization that resulted in him adopting a "resting bastard face," Kolin reflected. For his part, the hybrid remained silent as Gil spoke. The story came out slowly, and somewhat jumbled, as to...

Re: Private Lessons

Slowly, Gil's head rose to meet Freya's gaze. Apparently, he was willing to grant enough respect to brush his black bangs out of his eyes before replying. Kolin could see the brown roots underneath, so that was a dye job. Not even a molecule-follicle job, from the looks of it, but that would have re...

Re: Private Lessons

"Dresden Free Mercenaries..." Kolin's brow furrowed. It sounded familiar, but his circle wasn't particularly interested in the doings of PMC's. Not that the DFM had been doing anything particularly headline-grabbing lately, which would make sense if you knew their true purpose... But Kolin did not, ...

Re: Private Lessons

"Mia?" Kolin didn't know the name; Zechariah had apparently not seen fit to tell him, and the exploits of the 21st century Merc had apparently not been featured in many histories of the era. As a point of fact, much of the family was not recorded in history, at least under the Rackenhammer name. Mos...

Re: Private Lessons

Kolin was quite surprised, though not really displeased, at Freya's parting gift for Yvette. He left it without comment, though, fixing his eyes towards the mountain-obscured Horizon. "I really don't have plans. There's any number of small hotels or remote bed and breakfast places; the mountain scen...

Re: Private Lessons

Kolin awoke with a stretching yawn and a rustling of feathers. He was somewhat bleary-eyed from having woken up so soon, but otherwise seemed well rested. Freya's magical massage from the night before had meant the hybrid would wake with no soreness in his muscles, the only pain being that of hunger...

Re: Private Lessons

"A hoard of books, huh? Yeah that sounds like you; if you ever want to give Raymon a Birthday present, a free weekend perusing the volumes would be perfect!" Kolin laughed, his wings flapping out before curling back again. He yawned, leaning his weight against the head board. It seemed that this was...

Re: Private Lessons

Kolin didn't know how serious Freya's offer to expose Yvette to the real world was, but he laughed along with her, filing it away for reference. He never knew when his folks would spring another soiree or somesuch upon him, and he was resolved not to take the company on its own terms any more. Of co...

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...
