Salem was waiting at the airport, suitcase packed. He'd spent a few days contacting people, making sure they were still alive. Still willing to take care of business if something came up.

"I probably should ask the locals before I just jam them on the list. But I don't see it being an issue." he said to himself as he reviewed his list mentally. Eh. He could easily list 'the arrows' and 'the guardians' and that would be plenty. But he'd decided to do names, just to be nice. And contact information, for what he had on them.

Fìrinn arrived dressed in black slacks and a navy blue blouse, dragging a small wheeled travel case and carrying a small carry on bag over her left shoulder like a seasoned traveler.

She nodded at Salem when she saw him and made her way over to where he was waiting.

"Hotel rooms are booked and the locals are expecting us, any issues with the plane tickets?"

Salem shook his head and produced the tickets, "We are e-checked in. Did you prefer window or aisle? Its a bit of a puddle hopper, I'm afraid."

"Window." She checked the appropriate ticket. "A puddle jumper to Vancouver from New York? Probably just Westjet and those really are not puddle jumpers. Trust me I am from small town Canada, I know puddle jumpers. The airport I grew up with is tarmac, well apron is the actual term due to copyright, boarding only and is port of entry classified for forty-four passengers or less." She shook her head. "Still a far more pleasant experience than Pearson." She offered a mock shudder.

"Sorry. I am a bit of a seasoned traveler and it shows at times."

"Oh don't be a size queen this early in the trip." The Mastigos grinned.

"Ever been across the northern border?"

Salem raised an eyebrow, "Well I am from Texas. What other trope am I supposed to play to?"

"Why a hammer? But I did once plan the invasion of Mexico when I was in high school." Salem said with a smile.

"Well I have never been too fond of guns and a hammer can be used to create the ultimate weapon of a board with a nail in it. That should serve for an invasion right?"

Salem shook his head, smiling "I'm not supposed to be surprised you're a nerd, am I? But it feels like I may be stereotyping you some."

"Well science fiction, fantasy, horror and other typical quote unquote "nerd" or "geek" fields often have more freedom due to their subject matter to explore new ideas or social concepts that would be considered a third rail in more mainstream media." She picked a seat and sat to wait for the boarding call. "Even something as popular as the Simpsons is, well was before it began to become terrible, extremely layered with interesting social, philosophical and political commentary."

"The 'Ayn Rand School for Tots' being featured as the location for a "The Great Escape" homage in an episode about the frustrations of an ignored wife performing in a musical version of a "Streetcar Named Desire". Smarter than almost anything adults were watching at the time."

Salem nodded, "Psychologist and a nerd. As much a stereotype as I ever was."

He pulled an ipad from his suitcase, and checked the news, "Good to know we all play our roles with faithfully."

"I never stereotype other than to say that people will always surprise you."

The boarding call for their flight was called.

"That is us."

Salem carried the ipad with him, "Sure, but we all are, in our own ways. Stereotypes are statistically validated lenses through which we understand the world and filter our expectations."

He mostly meant the Fallen World. Mostly.
