Triplets and Triplets in Resonance

USP (Universidade de São Paulo / Sao Paulo's University) has a new state of the art campus for it’s magical engineering department. Already a renowned institution to learn the field, this year the new students have even more reason to be proud that they managed to get in these halls of learning.


But one of those is - if not completely regretful - slightly less proud due to current circumstances.


“-Ask a staff to do it for you. I won’t pick it up again.”

"Don't be a dick dude," says the guy following Fernando.

When they reach an intersection, someone speaks up from the other hall. 

"Hey Leco, that sounds like that guy from earlier," says a vaguely familiar voice. "He's being pushy again. Looks like he didn't learn anything from the last time." 

Permalink

The guy bolts. And Fernando looks where the voices come from. "Oh, You're the Barreira Anes triplets, right?"

Permalink

"One of them," Angél agrees under his laughter as he comes around the corner, "He didn't even wait to check! It's Angél," he adds, grinning, "My brothers are elsewhere at the moment.

"Based on the nagging, you must be the one with the telekinesis? Fernando, right?"

"Yes, though he did try to convince Thor to hold still while he hit him with a stick. I don't know what his deal is. You're the water controller?"

Permalink

"Yeah, he jumped into the fountain and then followed me for like ten minutes trying to convince me to dry him off. I mean, I did it the first time, but then he did it again? I'll only save a random person from their own idiotic decisions so many times, you know?" 

Permalink

He nods. "In my case he needed me to pick up his keys from weird places. He also was... rude to Felix? It's weird to say he was rude because he just didn't pay any attention to Felix and that's a blessing in disguise. So you enrolled here as well?"

Permalink

He nods along to the explanation. 

"Yeah! This is pretty crazy, actually, we figured we'd just never see you guys again after the multiples study. I can't believe we didn't even think to exchange numbers. You're studying magic engineering, right? Gabriel mentioned the three of you were interested in working on medicine."

"It was a lapse between all parts involved. And then we got busy enough with studying that we simply didn’t have the time. We are interested in medical research, yes. At the very least we would want the model of having one covenmate doing research and the others cover different areas."

Nodnod, "Well, it might be a little harder than before, but we could still introduce you to Bia - our cousin with the bio-gift. We told her about the immortality bit and she was definitely interested." 

Permalink

"Excellent, even if we don't turn out compatible it can't hurt to network. Does she live here in São Paulo?"

Permalink

"Yeah, but she lives with... her great-uncle, and he hates us now, so it'll take a bit of maneuvering to get her here to meet you." 

Permalink

"Hates you? Why?"

Permalink

He waves a hand airily, "Oh, we disowned ourselves, basically, took our parents' money and cut ties as soon as we hit 18. He's all offended because we're not under his control anymore. Also because we all told him to his face that we're bi." The look on his face was pretty great, no matter how scary the idea of actually doing it was in the lead-up. 

Permalink

"Oh, congratulations. On behalf of another set of bi triplets to another."

Permalink

"Thanks!" He grins, "What, all three of you? What are the chances," he says, voice laden with irony - and also interest. 

Permalink

Shrug. "I am sure yet another scientific journal would be interested in finding out, but it's not like we can argue with reality. Not when it gives favorable results."

Permalink

"Definitely not," he agrees. 

Permalink

"So, why did our mutual nuisance was so scared of just the mention of Leco?"

Permalink

"Well, see, over the course of that ten minutes I led him over to where Leco - Aleixo - was waiting for me. And when we got there pushy guy demanded a demonstration of his gift. And called me a few unflattering names in the process."

He pauses. Smiles brightly. 

"He may have gotten a little more than he bargained for. Leco's a little overprotective, sometimes." 

(He doesn't look like he minds this fact at all.)

Permalink

"I see." Fernando says neutrally. "Hopefully he is careful enough with his gift. I take that all three of you enrolled here?"

Permalink

"It wasn't that much. He's always careful with it. Anyway, the guy literally asked for it." He shrugs, moves on to the other question. 

"Yeah, we are. Gabriel's still at the registrar's office, sorting something out. Leco went to grab something to eat. Left me all alone, so I decided to do some exploring. Are your brothers here, too?" 

Permalink

"Yup. They are more amenable to joint applications - coven applications - than most places. Not that the place isn't otherwise great. We have been here a couple of days already, if you want me to show you around."

Permalink

"Oo, yeah, that'd be great! I bet you've had the chance to find all sorts of interesting little spots." 

Permalink

Fernando eyes him up and down. "Maybe a few."

Permalink

"How about you give me a tour of the best ones, then."
