After reviving myself from my death by hilarity via Do the Math... I died laughing again at that line.

Oh, Quinn, you magnificent monologuing bastard, you.
I'll probably die if you group with me, but I'll go out with both lightsabers drawn stabbing someone in the face. Probably you, but it's cool. Forever Shenanigans!!

You made me a happy little person.
As an electrical engineer I was obligated to represent the Fourier transform somewhere. My math-book-to-innuendo translation just wouldn't be complete without it.

It really does! It occurs to me now that the true master of seduction is simply the one who can bring the highest-order polynomial to bear on the curves in question...this clearly must be the kind of thing Wynston trains for. I would say he gives it all the processing cycles it needs, but a term of effort that uses the unit "flops" is not really where I wanted to go with this comparison...

As for Holiday? Quinn's air of noble tragedy strikes again. Too bad about his personality...Tharan had a sense of fun, at least. Holiday's appearance at all was in theory a one-off whim, but I think she might show up again sometime.

Hey, do one thing, do it well. Do two things (say, backstabbing), monumentally screw it up. So maybe do just the one thing, yeah, Quinn?

I had some minor annotations (in color) for Do the Math, that I'll copy over here as notes on some of the more mathematically consistent passages within that story. Not a whole lot, but a few explanations and observations.

I knew an engineer was involved in the creation of this. Mathematicians just don't say synthetic substitution.

If seduction can be mastered by high-order fitting of curves, then it is indeed a very hard task that requires a lot of patience and precision (make one mistake, you're screwed)... I think, I shouldn't go on with this line of thought.

That's not true. We only call them imaginary because no one - except for engineers of course - is willing to accept them as real numbers (pun wasn't intended, but it happened anyways).

I just got Quinn and listened to his first monologue ingame. (Yeah, at some point I gave up avoiding Warrior Spoilers. It's just impossible, if you want to read anything on the forum.) Fun time has begun.

*dies* I don't love Qwyn, because Wynston will hate me forever if I love it. For real. But I laughed, hard.

So... when do they have make-up sex? I'd even settle for hatesex...

It seems Holiday and I have similar tastes in cheekbones.
