May 16th, 2552 Numbers Game
Test Pilot/ Part-time mechanic/un-diplomatic Diplomat, Kat James Reporting
It seems that Andi is having an easier time getting along with the Fates than she ever did with people. The fates refuse to call her 238 saying that it is a bad number, in fact, the only number that’s worse is 237, me… my old number.
But for Andi, all that matters is the groove.
We talked about it and she told me that there are times when she loses herself in the music. She said time ceases and all that exists is a wave of sound, and she wants to stop and listen, but she knows if she does, she’ll lose the music.
And that is exactly what The Fates are like. Andi is their musician, I am their errant child and the fleet brought their lost children to them.
Math may be universal, but music is the universal application of math, physics, and artistry, and Andi speaks their language. It’s also given Fipps the missing piece of his calculation – sound.
I just know it sounded amazing and there were parts that no recording device could have captured. Magic. Plain and simple, magic. According to Andi, this is what real music should be. I don’t think she could ever go back to playing in a lounge.
