Salem smirked, "I don't think anything I was doing before my death counted as dating. One night stand at best."

"What about afterwards? Awakening change your perspective on the nature of relationships or did you dive head first into the new world opened to you and just ignore most human contact?" Shrike posed the question as they continued forward, in the distance were signs of civilization. Well road signs, one pointing towards "Winter Harbour".

Salem frowned, "A little bit of both, really. I pushed away from the vulnerable sleepers I knew while I came to grips with some facts about myself."

He paused and did a little self reflection, "I haven't made a lot of time for interpersonal relationships for a while. Might change one day, but there's work to do first."

Salem chuckled then, as he thought about how much things change, whether we wanted them to or not. And since he'd said it out loud, chances where good something would change again before he had a chance to finish that work.

"What about you Intrepid?"

Intrepid smiled. "Would it shock you if I said that I was popular and generally well liked, as well as socially well adjusted."

Shrike laughed. "No because you would be lying and I expect Guardians to lie."

The Guardian shrugged his shoulders. "The first two points are based on the opinions of others and thus could change as quickly as they decide to change their minds. The last is stretching it for anyone Awakened, so it's relative on if we're using Sleeper or Awakened standards of well adjusted."

Salem shrugged, "Social change is as important as physical sometimes. Walking in different walks of life grants perspective.

He considered the second half, then added, "I like to think most of the Awakened are fairly well adjusted, considering what we know. I mean anything less would probably lead to a lot of severe depression and paranoia. I only enjoy the latter myself. Not sure about you two, but I call that a win."

"Problem is that we're only a part of the Awakened, about forty percent give or take single digit or two. The others are involved in a Pyramid Scheme of Supernal Power, isolationists, or all sorts of crazy." Intrepid shook his head.

Salem shrugged dismissively, "Not all Seers are crazy. They just aren't good people. Banishers on the other hand..."

He shrugged, "I'll be glad to assist them with their transition into the afterlife."

"The Seers are a borderline Ponzi scheme with Supernal power involved instead of money and headed up power hungry wannabe gods with blue and orange morality based on fucking everyone else in the world over. That's well adjusted in same sense that Donald Trump or Vlad Putin are well adjusted." Intrepid glanced over at Shrike. "Beacon is really out in the middle of nowhere."

The woman nodded. "Then it's a good thing that distance is a lie." She flashed a smirk. "Five minutes more. You're coming back with me right?"

Intrepid nodded. "Yep."

The woman smiled at Salem. "And you get to stay until he makes his decision, so I'll come back to pick you up when Beacon messages the Hierarch."

Salem shrugged at the seer description, "It's a matter of perspective. You might can save a Seer. You can't save a Banisher."

"Yes, that's the plan. And Reality is a lie. We just have to master truth."

"Save is a great concept, just like communism, that has proven difficult in practice." Intrepid smiled as they kept walking, turning with Shrike when she made a left onto a dirt road that appeared to be a country driveway.

"So we're almost there, house is at the end of the dirt road, maybe two hundred meters."

Salem laughed, "I dunno. I've never been involved in either really."

When Shrike gave mention to the location he nodded and put away his sense of humor, "Any last minute things I need to know?"

"Remember who he is. A lot of people feel that they have the answers to the questions he is asking himself but nobody except him really understands those questions. He's been Awakened longer than any of us have been on earth and he's a third degree Master, don't waste his time by telling him to man up or anything like that. We all have our own internal battles, our own wars of the soul, and the last thing he needs is someone telling him how to find his way." Shrike shrugged. "Other than that don't be an asshole. Pretty simple."

Salem shrugged, "As long as he has himself put together enough to handle himself, that's his business."

He cracked a smile then added, "Besides, time is a lie, remember? Can't waste lies."

At the end of the path, which passed for a driveway, they arrived at a peaceful looking two story cabin. It was possessed of a certain rustic, and certainly Canadian, appearance and as they approached Intrepid began to quietly hum a tune that got a laugh and a grin from Shrike.

At the front of the cabin was a covered porch and sitting in a chair in the shade of the porch was an older man with a mix of Asian and Caucasian features. He appeared to be in his sixties. There was no magic on the man, nor on the cabin, that Salem could see.

Shrike stopped before they reached him and nodded with respect. "Beacon, Magister of the Vox Draconis, might I present Salem of the Ungula Draconis. I believe you know Intrepid of the Visus Draconis."

The man nodded at each of them. "Come inside, I shall put on a pot of tea." He got up and went to the door, holding it open until Shrike arrived to keep it open for Intrepid and Salem.

Salem stayed just a hair behind the others, and smiled warmly at the greetings, and followed inside.

He raised an eyebrow about putting tea on, then laughed softly as his memory engaged, "Oh right. The rest of the world does hot tea. I keep forgetting that I'm the heathen out here."
