Action: 1450 Mitchell Road and around
(Engie's at it again: he's busy working on more machines. The man's as busy as a bee as he zips around the garage, working on several projects at one go. There's a smile on his face too as he sings while he's screwing, hammering, or welding pieces of metal together. Eventually though, he straightens up and pushes his goggles from his eyes. But those aren't just any goggles; those are the ones he used back home. Getting them as a regain has been a major booster to Engie's morale, which HAS taken quite a beating. If you happen to be around, stop by and say hi.)

Action: Bakery
(He's even wearing his goggles to work now. While it's not part of the standard uniform, he's definitely not going to let them out of his sight. He's as cheerful as he has always been, greeting customers with a warm smile and a friendly "Howdy!")

Action: Olney's Tavern
(After a hard day's worth of work, he's heading to the bar for a nice cold one. He's always open for conversation, if you're looking for someone to talk to.)

Hey there folks, good day ta alla you. Name's Engie, an' I was wonderin' if there's anyone out there who's willin' ta teach this ol' cowboy some new tricks? I know there's a whole lotta people out there from different times and places, an' I'm itchin' for some new inventions. If anyone out there's willin' ta share summa their machines with me, well, that'd make me happier than a gopher in soft dirt.

[He sounds sort of amused when he replies, he's never spoken to a real cowboy before.]

I could teach you how to make a few small machines, if you tell me what you're interested in?

I'm interested in anythin' ya got. There's no machine out there that I ain't gonna love, an' I love learnin' 'bout new inventions.

Do you have any parts? Wiring and tools and so on?

From: [identity profile] hardhat-truckie.livejournal.com
Yeap, I got'em. Ya don't have ta bring anythin', I got heaps a' scrap metal ta work with, and I've got some tools too.

[He's not too keen on leaving the house at the moment, acutely aware of his brother resting upstairs.]

Would you like to bring a small bag of tools, wiring and small metal or plastic pieces to my house? I'll show you how to make something simple.

From: [identity profile] hardhat-truckie.livejournal.com
Sure thing. I'll come over now, if that's fine with ya. Where do ya stay? Actually, come ta think of it I don't even know your name. Pardon me stranger, but every time it comes ta machines everythin' else just gets thrown out the window, my manners included. What's your name?

I'm Cain Knightlord, it's nice to meet you! And I'm at 1648 Albright Lane, just come over any time now.

Nice ta meet'cha Cain. I'll be right over as quick as a hiccup!

(And sure enough, you'll have Engie knocking on your front door in fifteen minutes with his tool box and some scrap metal in a wheelbarrow.)

[And there is a very small and skinny ten year old boy answering the door, smiling up at the older man.]

Mr. Engie?

From: [identity profile] hardhat-truckie.livejournal.com
(Engie blinks, uncertain.)

Howdy there son. Ya wouldn't...happen ta be Cain Knightlord, would ya?

That's right, I'm Cain... come on in.

[He opens up the garage door so that Engie can take his wheelbarrow of metal in, following him in there.]

(Engie knows that kids can be prodigies, but even Cain's a little young. Still, who knows? He follows Cain into the garage.)

I thank ya kindly Cain; s'always nice ta meet a fellow inventor an' ta learn from each other.

[He starts picking through the scrap metal and wiring, trying to see what he could make from it.]

What sorts of things do you already know how to make?

Date: 2011-12-15 03:41 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] hardhat-truckie.livejournal.com
Well, I know how ta make a few machines.

(Engie's a bit careful about telling him exactly what it is he can build though. Cain is a ten year old kid, at least to Engie's eyes.)

I can make household appliances, an' I can fix'em too. I can also build teleporters.

From: [personal profile] kinship
Teleporters?!

[He laughs, rubbing the back of his head.]

You're ahead of me there, then. How about a communicator device?

Date: 2011-12-16 04:18 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] hardhat-truckie.livejournal.com
Well, I can fix telephones, but that's about it. What time are you from, son? I'm from the 1960s.

[ Ilsa breezes in - must be her turn to bring the pastries again. ]

Hey, hon! I need a random double-dozen again!

[ She smiles, and seems okay, and not as much in a rush this morning. ]

From: [identity profile] hardhat-truckie.livejournal.com
(Engie smiles and nods, getting to work.)

You got it, ma'am!

(After two months at the bakery, he's pretty good at packaging and preparing the pastries now. In less than five minutes he's done them all up, all ready for Ilsa.)

Here ya go!

I'm a lot better now, but thanks for asking.

(Dying over and over again, only to respawn the next day is something Engie's pretty used to.)

I had good friends, an' we did the best we could for each other. Not much I can complain about there.

How 'bout yourself? You alright?

ooeeooahah: (Hm)
From: [personal profile] ooeeooahah
Well, some good's come out of it, but I still don't like dying.

[ Her mouth twists in a wry smile. ]

Still more work to do, and hoping to get a lot done before Solstice.

Mostly baking, the old world recipes that they don't let you do here. Trying to make something feel like home.

[ She grins, ] I started the bourbon cake last week, and it's still not going to be like Daddy's, but it might be all right.

Well, if ya need a hand, you know who ta call. I think my bakin's gotten a whole lot better, since I've got Doc Doof teachin' me how ta bake properly.

Not a problem, depending on the forecast, I might be having a Yule party. I'll let you know when things are firmer.
