Hector Peck might be a dead end. I don't think he's involved at all with Vulcanus or that New Vesuvius city. He's just an editor for a newspaper here and keeps himself busy with that. Nothing out of the ordinary with his schedule or work.

[ /end private ]

[ When Gil speaks up, he sounds as if he's slightly congested. ]

I believe Raven has been ported out. If she had any previous or future engagements to attend to I'm sorry, but I don't think she'll be showing up. I haven't heard from or seen her around the house since before some of us were ported to New Vesuvius.

I'm not sure what to do yet about her belongings. It seems too soon to pack them away somewhere so they aren't lying around the place, doesn't it? A bit rude, too... [ He sighs. It's hard to finish cleaning the place when he's caught in a tiny dilemma like this!! ]

It's always going to be impossible to predict how long before people return. [ A beat. ] If they do.

[ Followed by another pause, as if he may add something to that thought. ]

Ah, never mind.
professorlionface: (All the way up there?)

I generally assume a few weeks is a good amount of time to give. We do eventually need the closure, after all.

It's a difficult conclusion to be certain of, when you don't see it confirmed yourself. The best I can say is that I have returned to find those here and gone from my timeline still waiting.

I can only hope it's the same for the worlds I can't see.
professorlionface: (So it would seem.)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-07-18 04:14 pm (UTC)(link)
[He pauses.] Hmm. It can be hard to tell. I'm sure at least some of them must be, but our best way of guessing is by their reactions to what they encounter here.

I imagine they all have their own variety of troubles.
professorlionface: (What was I thinking?)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-07-19 10:00 pm (UTC)(link)
Yes, well we can really only assume that because it's what we've encountered most of the times we've been ported out. But, that's Occam's Razor for you, the simplest comfort we can hope for.

It's the logical principle that the simplest explanation is usually the most likely. The idea is generally that any more complicated theory requires further proof to be held in the same regard.

In this case, the way Occam's Razor cuts is in our favor. We have more proof of instances where individual exPorts are sent home than otherwise.
professorlionface: (It can't be that bad.)

What it all comes down to is that your friend is very probably perfectly okay. [And if she isn't then they won't know it anyway and it's really better not to think about it. But he's not about to mention that part.]
professorlionface: (Our little secret.)

You know I'm a science teacher. Have you ever put any thought into being tutored, or taking a few courses?
professorlionface: (I find myself brimming with thoughts.)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-07-26 01:45 am (UTC)(link)
Ah, work has you on a full schedule?
professorlionface: (Upside-down smile!)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-07-27 07:16 pm (UTC)(link)
That's part of the point in learning, I think! I could always lend you some books to read on your own time, if that might work better for you.
professorlionface: (It's really quite simple.)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-07-28 10:40 pm (UTC)(link)
How's that? I think we all have our potential to learn new things, and as a teacher, it's my job to consider the best ways to help others achieve that for themselves.
professorlionface: (I'll take your word for it.)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-07-28 11:59 pm (UTC)(link)
I've always had the feeling you weren't from the current era, but...when exactly are you from, Gil?
professorlionface: (I find myself brimming with thoughts.)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-07-30 05:52 pm (UTC)(link)
[IT'S OKAY we'll just call it Vaguetorian Era.]

Yes, but not an unheard of displacement. I have a friend from about the same time. [He almost considers offering Gil a job teaching math, just as a joke.]
