Except last year, apparently.

Pye’s response was a surprise. John’s eyebrows dropped and drew inward abruptly in annoyance, but he bit his tongue before he made an emotional reply. Snapping that it was not proper to answer a question with a question or that it didn’t matter why he thought it and that Pye should just answer the question were both responses that were unlikely to get him what he wanted, which was confirmation of his research.

Instead, then, he pinched the bridge of his nose again while he cycled through responses, only to decide on something pretty close to the truth. He was not going to include Laila’s yummy werewolves, but other than that….

“I test above average in pattern recognition,” shrugged John. “I don’t always know what a pattern means, but I can usually see when one is there, even if I don’t know – how I know. And I ask questions all the time, in here.” He tapped his head. “And try to - fit what I observe into answers, to make the questions go away. Most of the time it's in the back of my head, they’re not relevant, but – my roommate disappearing a lot, that’s a relevant pattern, what’s he doing? Why? Is his behavior going to affect me? I noticed one night that he was gone and that it was the full moon at the same time, so I formed a hypothesis and gathered data on his behavior for the past few months to support it. Correlation isn't causation, but...” John paused, then decided he could. “I can show you my data if you like,” he added. “I made a chart.”
