    Matt is very tall,at seven feet,he draws stares and attention whether he is doing anything that warrants it or not. He's in his late teens or early twenties. His voices is deep. He moves well for such a big man, with some athletic training in evidence. His expression is generally always angry to some degree whether he is actively glaring or just generally scowling, lost in thought.

    Matt laughs at 'Mary's comments and Emily's. He doesn't respond to 'Adam's apparent incredulity, after all, he just said that. He manages not to roll his eyes at Nate's comment about the Mystery Machine. He smiles at Emily's handing out her business card for the garage and mentioning good reviews online. Good.

    Matt generally settles in to watch and be entertained, continuing to eat and seeming to be enjoying himself as a proverbial, gargantuan 'fly on the wall'!

    Most of what Circe says is basically sexual innuendo aimed at Emily, hidden with varying degrees of subtlety. Thus, Shodan is happy to let them do their thing, except for the one comment about hydrogen which he can actually answer.

    Shodan pockets Emily's business cards, not being entirely clear on why she gives him a whole handful, but whatever. A look is spared for Matt, playing the strong and silent type apparently.

    "Uh, yeah, I mean hydrogen is extremely hazardous to store, but that is what makes it so energy-efficient. Being the optimist that I am, however, I say it's not a problem of a too strong fuel, it's a not-yet-realized solution of better fuel cells" He answers the Italian, grabbing a waffle upon finishing the sentence.

    The Obrimos listens attentively to Nathaniel further explaining his ideas on ley lines "As much as I'd like to make fun of leys being free spiritual version of viagra, it wouldn't be impossible - I guess? Like, people seem to be happier in specific, moderate climates, in surroundings that are aesthetically pleasing... so it's not entirely without merit that the leys influence their settlement decisions. Give 'good vibes', whatever you wanna call it" To be honest, not even mages understand ley lines fully, so it's a theory like any other.

    "That's solid man, thanks" He responds to Nate's offer on sharing notes "The uni library would be a good place, yeah. I come around often enough, I''ll pick it up some time" And oh brother, he is going to study the shit out of that shit, even if it will all turn out to be shit "And you bet your boots, I'll be coming back if I have the time! For topics, I was thinking on the properties of the mind that are not fully explored - lucid dreaming, precognition, telepathy... I am super into discussing things like that, even if it's only theory. Plus, y'all don't look like your usual bunch of stuffy academics, so - you know..." He smiles, chuckles.

    By now the crescent had simply decided to leave Merry and Emily to catch up, not wanting to interrupt- Nathaniel wasn't sure what he could say to the two anyways, in regards to their matters... Not even mentioning how awkward it might be with his sister-crescent involved.

    "Right? I mean, it's possible. anyways, I might ask Merry to borrow and see if those tools tell me anything- but, I'm not hoping for much. For ECOs and ECS to be readable I have to imagine something might need to activate it first, or cause them to express whatever force is contained? Otherwise, why wouldn't this stuff have been found ages ago?" Borrowing from the notion that Fetishes and Talens were totally-normal objects. Until they weren't. "So, until I can find a more concrete way to locate them I'll stick to the theoretical developmental forces they may have."

    This Adam was... Very agreeable. Nathaniel would enjoy discussing more with this one, for sure."They have their uses- I've learned enough from them. But new things are inevitable- and I'll not be deterred by 'Stuffy Academics' in that regard." He'd had enough of them to last a lifetime, from his Bone Shadow mentor. "As per your suggestions- Lucid dreaming and Precognition might go hand in hand. Like, if the mind is powerful and focused enough perhaps it could be trained to predict future events based on what you know? Er... That's a talk for another time. I know some meditation tricks, maybe we could start there and see if it's possible." Though the pup was kind of worried at what such a thing might uncover, given his nature. How much his Spirit self might bleed through.

    And the big lug... "Hey Matt, think you could design something to scan for energy signatures on multiple...frequencies? That's a thing right? Or maybe a way to search the entire internet for sightings and historical events to find links?" Computers could do that... maybe. It was one of Nathaniel's weakest subjects.


    Er... Anything else wanted to discuss? Not sure if I'm reading the room right, but it seemed a decent time to close?

    Matt frowns, "It doesn't work like that, Nathaniel. You gotta figure out what exactly you're trying to detect. If you can tell me that, sure, I can search Shodan and probably build you a world wide zombie bot net on the Internet of Things looking for what you are trying to detect and reporting back." he growls. "But you have to know what you want; garbage in, garbage out."

    All good to close! Thanks for the crash scene! Fun times!

    Mein:

    Her skin turns a slate-blue and her hair bone white. The whites of her eyes are blood red, the irises are purple with cat-slit black pupils. The helix of her ears elongate out 2" inches ending in a tip. Her features sharpen and her figure has an unnatural, inhuman litheness that can be intellectually disturbing.

    Her skin brings to mind Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, or Asian races, though her high cheek bones and sharp facial structure don't match. Most assume she is of mixed ancestry given the pale blonde hair.

    Emily got a giggle from Circe, "The absolute worst, all over. But honestly if I wear a body suit fer protection I think skin tight would look waaaay better. Aaaand lemme check my schedule," Circe takes out her smart phone to actually check her schedule. "Fanculo. Il programma deve essere aperto, essere aperto."

    Had Circe still been blue her ears would've twitched as Shodan mentioned lucid dreaming. That thing all Lost can do with ease. And then Nathaniel pretty muchs hits Tokens on the mark. Or Hedgespun too she guessed. And now these mundies were talking about Oracle bullshit that some Autumns claimed could be achieved through contracts and Oneiromancy. The internet might be safer. "Dude," she looks at Nate, "Ya can keep those gadgets. I told ya so when I handed 'em over. I'll try ta work on other Casper cameras. Ya boys watch out fer Internet scams, like live Disney fairies or watermelon ghosts."

    And worse news as she turns to Emily, "After 5 I'm free, work gettin' in the way. No rest fer the wicked and ya know me Emily. Is 5 good?"

    Good to close. Sorry for the posting delay hope you all had fun this week.

    Emily has several tattooes:
    - a sleeve of vines and flowers on her right upper arm and shoulder
    - a collection of stars on her left wrist, tapering up her arm
    - flowers on her right foot around her ankle
    - A crescent moof on her left shoulderblade

    Emily lets Adam and Nate talk more detailed Occultism. Sounded like her Auspice-mate had found a kindred spirit any way. Still, best not to let him get carried away on case this was an exceptionally cunning trap.

    Circe's announce of delay is met with a small pout and a sigh. "Are you ever not wicked? Making a girl wait...." She brightens. "After five then. Mine? I can sort a stiff drink for ya - sounds like you'll need one." She blows the changeling a kiss.

    Also good to close. Thanks for a fun scene all

    "I'm cool with that" He responds to Nathaniel's plan for the next meeting. Meditation in the traditional sense is not his usual activity, but hey! New things all around!

    The notion of 'searching Shodan' made by the towering Matt sent an inadvertent shiver down the mage's spine before he realized the man was talking about an actual search engine. The apparent ease with which he was talking about the Internet of things and its general principle of use lent some credibility to his previous claims of coding.

    "Aight, I'm going to head home. Nice meeting y'all" He says to those gathered.

    Good to close as well

    An informative and welcome meeting of old friends, new friends, family, new knowledge and opportunity. The equipment offered by Circe would be put to use measuring the Fetishes Nathaniel owned, and perhaps on a spirit if one proved willing.

    All-in-all, this was a fun time. Not something Nathaniel could do every week- but something to always keep in mind, whenever he had the time.

    Fun Scene Guys!
