"Are you all related? What's your favorite color? How did you get here? What's the heaviest thing you've ever picked up? Do you like tacos? What's the furthest you've jumped? What's your favorite number?" He takes a deep breath. "Why is your blood silver? Who's your favorite author and why? If you were stuck on a desert island what three objects would you take with you? What number am I thinking of? Why's the sky blue? How many Tumeroks does it take to build a house?"

He'll keep asking questions until someone asks him to stop.

Faith answers Steve's questions with deftness.

"No. Purple. Ship. Tree trunk. Don't know. Four meters, vertically. Pi. Necessity. Veldtralan, he wrote good stories. A knife, a lighter and a book. I don't know. The Forrower effect. Zero."

Konrad can't stop smiling. "You're welcome to stay as long as you like, and answer as many questions as you like. There's no rush, really."


Can she even keep up enough to respond to me?

Deep breath number two. "Have you been inside the Dome? What caused the Flood? What is Snicker? Have you ever served in law enforcement? What are stars made out of? How long would it take you to swim around the world at your fastest sustainable pace? Where do fairies come from?"

Deep breath number three. "Any advice you can share on first dates with old friends? Why does everything taste like chicken except fish? What's the coolest thing you've ever punched? Is Conan just a colleague or is he a little more, wink, wink? If you could have dinner with one person from history, who would it be? Can I high five you? Can Breeze high five you? Can we then high five each other all at once?"

He'll keep asking questions until someone asks him to stop.

At the "advice" question, Konrad begins to chuckle openly. Not constantly, but he isn't trying to stop.

Faith answers the second volley of questions. "No. I don't know. I don't know. No. Hydrogen and ilium, but it's theory. I would die before I could. Magic?"

Third volley.

"Don't fart. Inadequate tongues. Ice. He's my comrade. The last Emperor. Yes. Yes. Yes."

"High-five!" shouts Breeze..

Faith proceeds to high-five Steve and Breeze, and whoever wants to. She's a little bewildered, but willing.

Well, she said she could do it. While Steve continues to fire off questions, Konrad waves Mihai and the others over as he walks up, hoping to start a high-five "conga" line (not really), and holds his hand up in the same manner that Breeze did.

He also rolls Deception to know what Steve's player told his player in chat.

After Breeze and Steve high-fived her, Konrad also did; but no one else seems interested...

Mihai scratches his head at this whole hi-five thing. - "Nothing personal, i just find overt displays of camaraderie distressing."

"Yeah!" Steve gives and takes all offered high fives.

Deep breath number four. "What's the Forrower Effect? If Highwind and The Citadel declare war on each other and begin launching civilians at each other using man sized catapults where would you bury the survivors? What's the best song you've ever heard? What's your favorite song in general? Can I go for a ride in whatever brought you here someday? If you could repaint an object, any object, what would it be and what colors and why? What's today's date? What color would you prefer your blood to be?"

Deep breath number five. "What did you like about the last Emperor? If you could live anywhere, where would it be? What name am I thinking of right now? What's your favorite breakfast food? What's the name of your ship? Have you ever had a pet? Do you like fireworks? What's the longest your nails have ever grown?"

He'll keep asking questions unless someone stops him.

Konrad silently walks down the south wing hallway, and leaves the building through the window of the nearest room to try and catch up to Conan. He does not want to risk Faith's wrath by Scanning her when Conan had already agreed to it once.

OOC:
Forrower effect is the Tyndall Effect (or Rayleigh scattering) of this world.

To the first question, she gives a succinct, but well summarized explanation that Steve is familiar with. To the fourth volley of questions;

"No need to bury the survivors. Setting Sail, Coming Home. Setting Sail, Coming Home. No. An apple, and I would prefer it brown because of the chocolate. 9th of August. White."

Fifth volley. She hasn't shown any sign of fatigue, but simple curiosity to all these questions. Everyone else is listening intently to this unexpected "exchange".

"Nothing. Home. I don't know. Bread. One. No. No. One centimeter?"

______________

Konrad looks around, but he cannot see any sign of Conan or his comrades or where they might have went.

Konrad goes around to the back to reunite with the others via back door. In a bit of a hurry, before she decides she's had enough of Steve's questions...if that's possible??

"Excuse me," he says, cutting through the rapid-fire questions (sorry Steve). "Your friends have left with Conan. That's...impressive... Uh, he agreed to let me Scan him before he was officially under our protection. I wanted to conserve my magicka for the fight, and I didn't get to cast it at the strength I desired. May I Scan you, before you leave and I lose my chance forever? Until about two years, at most...at least."

Super polite, and again laconic with his choice of words. And yes, maybe turning on the charm, just a bit, with his choice of words near the end.

Faith faces Konrad, and responds with, "Yes you can, but you won't learn anything new."

She refocuses her attention on Steve.

Steve's face becomes serious and he looks her up and down with his eyes. "Heh. Your all right Faith. Put her there." He'll hold his hand out for her to shake.

Faith slightly tilts her head when Konrad says "mistake", but she doesn't react in any other way, and looks instead at Steve's hand. She goes for a standard handshake.

Steve turns it into a complicated series of slides, slips, pounds and slaps, ending it with a snap. He goes as fast as he can.

Faith is completely lost. She has no idea what this exotic handshake is, and questions Steve with a look.
