Re: Private Lessons

As teasing as the question may have been, Kolin gave it serious thought. After all, the answer might actually be relevant to his near future. Who knew? "Well..." Looking over to the lights of Bayreuth in the distance, he grinned. "Slalom race through the skyline, come into a restaurant via the roof ...

Re: Private Lessons

Kolin had to chew on her answer for a few seconds before replying. "Capitalism as a universal cultural solvent? I suppose that makes a kind of sense; it explains why there was less inbuilt resistance to the Party's re-writing of history. There wasn't as much left of it as there was in other countrie...

Re: Private Lessons

"It's alright." Kolin dismissed whatever lingering bad memories hung about his past as a caged bird with another flap of his wings. "Though, it probably explains why I always fly everywhere I can. I bought this mobility dearly, and I can't help but feel... confined, sometimes, in large crowds. It's ...

Re: Private Lessons

For as uninterested as Freya expected him to be, Kolin was absolutely attentive to Freya during her entire narrative, respectful even of her pauses. Of course, given that he was a history buff, it made sense that he would be quietly in awe of a living witness. Even though the narrative was sparse of...

Re: Private Lessons

Kolin couldn't help but flex just a little bit when he sensed Freya eyeing him up. However playful her teasing was intended, she certainly got a good look. His musculature was what one would expect from someone who regularly flew under their own wingpower, solid, lithe, but not at all bulky. An alto...

Re: Private Lessons

(UGH, I only just now checked back to see my post got eaten! Sorry) Kolin was taking her advice about efficiency to heart, as he knew that the couldn't deflect all the incoming missiles. What he could do however, was snag a couple of the slower-moving books with his magic to give himself extra block...

Re: Private Lessons

It seemed that Kolin was taking Freya's suggestion about saving energy to heart, as he now aimed to deflect the incoming missiles as efficiently as possible. Using his hands for extra precision, he aimed two bolts at the leading books, sending them each into an intercepting trajectory with the books...

Re: Private Lessons

"Not unless he's been splicing." Kolin replied, as Freya asked about Raymon's potential draconic heritage. That might explain his surprisingly casual attitude towards his friend's 'horde.' He was more interested in the usefulness of electromagnetic manipulation, and its potential uses in stealthily ...

Re: Private Lessons

(Apologies this took so long, was fighting a cold) Kolin grunted as he lay the crate down on the docks. "To be honest, I'm glad of an excuse to get rid of the clutter. Raymon would bury himself alive, left to his own devices." Resting a bit by perching on the edge of the crate, he swung his legs and...

Re: Private Lessons

Happy to have something to do to keep his mind busy again, Kolin hunted for targets in the warehouse. There weren't actually that many things which would do for the task; most everything sturdy enough was also too valuable to use as target practice. At least, valuable to Raymon, who had an instincti...

Re: Private Lessons

Raymon sighed. "Well, it isn't to you , perhaps, but medical technology has not caught up to the point where it's irrelevant for us . Efforts of Kolin's mother notwithstanding." The hybrid was shooting his friend the side-eye; having already had to deal with unexpected remarks, any mention of his mo...

Re: Private Lessons

Raymon shook his head. "Of course not! I was young myself once-" "According to the actuarial tables, you still are." Kolin interjected, chaffing his friend as he tended to do over the years. The mouse only rolled his eyes before continuing. "Anyhow, ever since Luckless disappeared, I'd been rather w...

Re: Private Lessons

Bending over to pick up the ball of paper, Kolin crinkled it in his paws as he thought about where to move this venture to. "Didn't old Zed say he had some land out west that was free? Out by the woods, away from the cities. That'd be a perfect place for this sort of thing." A smile curled around hi...

Re: Private Lessons

The ball came to Kolin so fast after Freya's acceleration, he didn't have time to counter it with any subtlety. He could only send it rocketing back with a blast of air, which reverberated throughout the warehouse. The noise and shaking was enough to conjure Raymon from the lower level, skittering u...

Re: Private Lessons

In response to Freya's soccer move, Kolin would respond with a similarly sports-inspired move. As the paper approached, he stomped his foot, creating an updraft that shot the paper straight up, before miming the swing of a bat to create a small thunderclap to send the ball back to her. "Hah! Ludolog...
