Faith is sitting perched on the back of a chair, tilting it back on two legs, with one foot on the edge of the kitchen table for balance. She's too interested in the book to look up and acknowledge Theo.

 

The table is covered with other books, plus notebooks and pencils and two open laptops and other miscellaneous research materials. Apparently they've got quite the project going.

… Right.

Not having a voice is annoying, types Theo into his phone, and then fortunately since it has such wonderful accessibility features he can have it spoken aloud by a not-so-monotonous voice. Hello.

Reuben puts down the whisk to retrieve a notebook and write Hi Theo! :) in neat print over half a page, and holds it up with a bright smile.

Faith pulls a laptop over and types briskly. "No kidding, it's the worst," the laptop says for her. In an Arnold Schwarzenegger voice.

Of course.

"Typing on my phone is probably faster than writing."

Permalink

Type type. "Reuben is the only one writing. The rest of us are typing too."

Permalink

Em sits down in front of some research she appears to be in the middle of, and gestures towards an empty chair.

Permalink

Reuben, meanwhile, has returned to cooking.

Theo sits and has a look at the covers of some of the books.

Or if Em points him to something in particular, that.

Em hands him a sheet of lined paper torn from a notebook. It's got a bullet-pointed outline for the project in barely-legible handwriting, with occasional translations written above a line in Reuben's neat block print. At the top there's a list of major resources, some of them accompanied with notes on what they've found, others not yet looked into. Beneath that, there's a list of various hypotheses as to the cause (magical plague, vengeance demon, demon curse, spell gone wrong...) and some potential ways to test each. Then there's general-purpose damage control measures, and finally a list of research threads that are looking promising.

Various things have M or F written in the margins next to them; others are crossed out or checked off. Also, either there's an elaborate color-coding system going on, or they just got really overenthusiastic with gel pens.

Anything he could help with in the research threads or the general-purpose damage control?

Also – "What's the color-coding for?"

Permalink

Em glances at the list, back at Theo, then waves a hand in a vaguely dismissive sort of way.

The "damage control" heading includes "graveyard," "morgue," "curfew," "hellmouth," "blessings," and "wards." The research threads are a bit more muddled with modifications, but they seem to include "Pythagoreans/Trappists," "LGBT (UC wicca???)" and "Prophet (Cass/Zach??)," with further notes and citations listed in a more-or-less disorderly fashion below each.

He points at the 'Pythagoreans/Trappists' thing and tilts his head! Also 'Cass/Zach'.

She shoves the P volume of an encyclopedia and a copy of the Rule of St. Benedict, both with bookmarks sticking out, in his direction.
