001 ✨ video

[So here's a feed mostly unrelated to recent shenanigans, video gently out of focus from being held too close to its target. It resolves itself into a rumpled sweater a moment later, worn by a boy with fair hair and a peculiar smudge on his face. There's a school patch on his chest, an embroidered emblem of a raven (and possibly familiar to anyone who has seen a uniform from Aglionby Academy).

There's a beat of silence as his hands hover around the camera and he pulls back, anxious, pocketing them briefly before they finally drop to his sides.]


Being dead makes this a little less weird than it could be, but I'm pretty sure this isn't how it goes in history texts. [It's a little breathless. A faint, almost blurry frown ticks its way across his face and he blinks a couple times. Tiredness, from the looks of it, though somehow he wears it a little odd.]

I'm pretty sure they skip the superhero part completely, actually, but I could be wrong. And the music[Someone has discovered pop punk never really happened. He leans forward, earnest and worried.]

I'm looking for Henrietta. It should be in Virginia, but... [But the struggle is real for canon-specific cities. He shakes his head once and the feed cuts off.]

Wait, dead?

Is this some kind of alternate universe thing? Because scientifically speaking, ghosts are impossible.

Does that mean you're intangible? Can you walk through walls? Possess people?

[These questions are all for SCIENCE.]
skyentologist: is this weird behavior or idk. (do I have too many jars of dirt)

[personal profile] skyentologist 2016-02-29 12:01 am (UTC)(link)
Good to know you're a responsible ghost, at least. Or whatever you are.

Were you like this back home? It might just be a superpower thing.
skyentologist: (damn most of me is water)

[personal profile] skyentologist 2016-03-02 10:50 pm (UTC)(link)
So... wait. You can come here even if you're dead?

[That makes Ema a little queasy for some reason.]

Apparition does sound more scientific.

Speaking as a scientist, they're quite possible. Just throwing that out there.

I'll need to see some evidence before I believe anything.

Well, I don't have any apart from personal experience. Paranormal activity isn't my primary field of study. But I have a good friend back home who can summon and command them.

[Don't get him wrong, though, he wasn't a believer either before he started working with her.]

Is this magic again? Because it sounds like magic.

Most likely. The human soul does have a tendency to defy quantification.

This is sounding more like philosophy than science.

My point exactly. There's a reason it used to be called "natural philosophy." Some phenomena have very real, observable effects, yet can't be fully explained using the scientific method.

Just because something is inexplicable now doesn't mean it will be forever. It's more likely there's a reasonable, scientific cause behind things like ghost sightings.

Sure, it's possible - just as there's a mechanism for telepathy and the like. But you should also be prepared for the possibility that some ghost sightings are simply caused by ghosts.

Sure. But until we get hard evidence, I'm going to be skeptical.

I'm talking about stuff that's not imPort related, by the way.

Well, if she happens to show up here one day, you can tell her as much. Frankly, though, I doubt she'd have any reason to summon you in the first place.

[She's got waaaaay stronger spirits at her disposal, after all.]
