broji: (ah sorry!)

[Ginji's peering curiously around the smithy since this is the first opportunity he's had to visit. He's pretty excited about it - but not quite excited enough to forget that he's here on a mission. Or three.]

[He takes a few steps back from the metal he's been examining and turns his attention to looking for the blacksmith.]


Hello?

broji: (calm; confident; flying ace)

[Action, November ~22? ]

[No one else is answering, so Ginji makes his way towards the back. Sure enough, someone's busily at work, but Ginji knows better than to interrupt. If he'd bothered Grandfather while he was busy on a project, he'd have gotten clobbered over the head.]

[Ginji will stand back and watch - because this really is pretty fascinating - until this guy finishes up what he's working on. Or at least stops for a break.]
broji: (roll up your sleeves; roger)

[Action, November ~22? ]

[personal profile] broji 2011-12-07 05:31 am (UTC)(link)
Thank you. I hope you don't mind that I had a look around while you were working.

[Ginji glances around again from where he's standing, smiling a little. It's a familiar sort of place to him.]

Actually I'm trying to find someone named Sokka. [Is this Sokka? He's not sure.] It's about a project I offered to help with. I could also use a few tools if you're okay with bartering.
broji: (peaceful; messenger)

[Action, November ~22? ]

[personal profile] broji 2011-12-12 02:42 am (UTC)(link)
Oh good. Anyway, I was talking to someone named Marco who wanted to commission a fire-powered engine. He said he'd already spoken with you about it.

As for the tools, I could make up a list. What do you normally ask for as payment?
broji: (huh; oh really?)

[Action, November ~22? ]

[personal profile] broji 2011-12-12 03:24 am (UTC)(link)
[Ginji looks slightly alarmed.]

No, I don't think so. I just thought I'd come by to see if you could use any extra manpower.
broji: (calm; confident; flying ace)

[Ginji seems to relax a little bit too, places a hand on one hip.]

Well, I'd be happy to help if you need it. I don't mind working hard. [He doesn't want to push though.]
broji: (a change of direction)

[Action, November ~22? ]

[personal profile] broji 2011-12-19 03:18 am (UTC)(link)
Sounds busy. [Though how many swords does a person need?]

I'm sure you have your own way of handling things around here - at least that's been my experience in the past. What would you like me to do?
broji: (oh hello everyone)

[personal profile] broji 2011-12-24 03:11 am (UTC)(link)
Grandfather used to work me pretty hard. [He says this lightly.]

But I guess it all depends on whether I'm familiar with the part. If not, a sketch should be enough, or I could draw up a diagram myself.
broji: (tinkering around)

[personal profile] broji 2011-12-27 01:54 am (UTC)(link)
[Ginji will follow Sokka over to the table and take a moment to study the blueprints carefully, one hand propped on his hip as usual, and the other tucked under his chin in concentration.]

...The crankshaft? [He'll study everything for a moment longer, then gesture to one area of the diagram. The names are confusing his understanding of the sketches just a...little bit. He guesses this is a case of differences in engineering and words being lost in translation from one world to another. How to work around it...]

And...this is where the valves are located, right?
broji: (noelle; listening; at it again)

[personal profile] broji 2012-01-03 02:58 am (UTC)(link)
[He'll reevaluate the diagram, taking the corrected location of the valves into account.]

Right, okay. And these lines here? [He gestures to another series of markings on the plans.]

Oh, okay. [Wow, Sokka wasn't kidding about things being busy around here. Looks like he got interrupted from drawing up the plans a couple times.]

[Ginji will straighten back up and give them a last good look.]


I think I follow. So what metals had you planned to use?
broji: (tinkering around)

[personal profile] broji 2012-01-15 03:58 am (UTC)(link)
Hmm... [Ginji taps the side of his chin.] The only problem with magnesium is that if it does manage to catch fire, it'll very likely explode. Steel might hold up better under the circumstances.

Or an alloy of some kind.
broji: (a change of direction)

[personal profile] broji 2012-01-16 01:26 am (UTC)(link)
[Ginji shrugs lightly and shakes his head. He can't even begin to guess how hot they might be. Not when everyone comes from such different worlds. Worlds with different rules and energies and technologies.]

What about testing the engine components?
