The Librarian shrugged.

“I have no — hic! — idea.” He took another swig, then stoppered the now-empty bottle and shoved it into one of his coat’s voluminous pockets. “I never met him — he is a bit younger than me, and I never had any reason to fraternize with him even in the Academy.”
He looked a lot more sober than he was a moment before, and he had a dangerous glint in his eyes. “Why are you asking?”

  • Then he thought better of it. "My partner talks a lot about this Doctor character," he said, latching on to the subject. "I think she's a bit smitten with him. What's he like?" ((Oh, Zeb, you're so... more

          “Oh? You have a way to navigate this accursed maze?” the Librarian asked doubtfully. “This is much more important than my partner. Do tell me.” It didn't quite sound like the Time Lord was asking.
          • Maxwell turned around towards Rudi's again and started walking, lecturing over his shoulder. "First, you got your three dimensions. You also got time, and consciousness, and another one I can't... more

              "Are you understanding any of this?" he asked over Maxwell's chatter. ((I feel like my posts are ridiculously short.))

                “Of course I understand. What do I look like, a human?” the Time Lord asked. “Do continue, Maxwell. The concept is interesting enough, though you do some somewhat unfamiliar with it. Do you perchance ... more

                  "Oh, Ben and the rest of us were shown a map of HQ during our tour of DIA central. We got the explanation from Doctor... er... Doctor..." The Jolteon's face scrunched up, deep in thought. "He had a... more
                  • "Well, that's specific,"Iximaz, Tue Feb 24 22:39
                    muttered Zeb in a rare fit of sarcasm. More loudly, he said, "How come it's just the DIA agents who get maps of this place?" ((Because reasons, Zeb. Don't you know anything?))
                    • "Because reasons, Zeb!"SeaTurtle, Wed Feb 25 16:04
                      "Besides, you Action Department people are all about what's going on outisde HQ. DIA and DES-- well, we kinda need to know out way 'round this place." The Jolteon checked the RC numbers going by.... more

                        “I should get the data somewhere. I wonder how would Tablet interface with it…?” the Librarian obviously didn’t notice he was thinking out loud; he was more inebriated than he thought. “Those... more

                          "That the map exists is pretty common knowledge in the PPC-- but actually knowing how it's shown to you..." Maxwell smiled. "The only way for anyone to see it is to become part of the DIA. Sorry sir, ... more

                            The Librarian shrugged. “Such limitations did not stop me in my quest before and they will not start to do so now.” A pause. “That is the establishment you were speaking of, Maxwell, is it not?”... more
                            • "Yep, that's the place."SeaTurtle, Fri Feb 27 20:01
                              "Just go in and take a look around. The last time I saw him was at a table." The Jolteon added as an afterthought: "Oh, and if you're thinking of joining DIA... it's a commitment. You're not gonna... more

                                He didn’t say anything; let Maxwell think what he will. He entered Rudi’s and took a look around, then exited the pub again. “He is here,” he informed the two Pokémon. “I must add that his table... more

                                    Maxwell seemed to be inadvertently doing everything to keep Zeb from being able to just have a nice conversation with him. But he couldn't say so without appearing rude. "Erm, yes, you could come... more

                                      The Librarian looked from Zeb to Maxwell, an amused glint in his eyes. “I shall go and join my partner. There are some questions that need to be asked.” Waving cheerfully, he entered the pub and made ... more

                                        Thank you, he thought after the Librarian. He turned to Maxwell, grinning broadly. "So... shall we go find that pool?" ((Awesome! Thanks! And that reminds me, my upcoming Time Lord agent is probably... more

                                          Maxwell started walking down the hallway, humming a little tune to himself. He continued for a while and turned to the Luxray beside him. "Say, Zeb... Can I ask you a personal question? OK, not sure... more

                                            Zeb swallowed, his heart hammering in his chest. "Y-yes?" ((I've sent a test email!))

                                                "N-no, not at all!" he said, stepping a little closer to Maxwell. "Go on." ((Ah, that would explain why I was getting error messages.))
