Ramon

We all have to die sometime, right?

Ramon

Postby Phil » Thu May 30, 2013 7:49 pm

I'm sorry to have to report that Ramon went into stub sometime late last night or early this morning. I just heard a couple of hours ago. Best guess at this point is a stroke, though we won't know anything for sure for a few days. I know it was unexpected.

We're going to be making plans for the search for a recruit right away. Most of the conversation will be on the Salt board, but if anyone has any suggestions, of course, feel free to include them here. Other than us, he has no family.

I'm on the road to Vegas, but I've been thinking as I drove, and want to log a couple of notes: Ramon was an illuminating, insightful, steadfast member of long standing and his unique gift for rationality is still badly needed among us. Ramon was in Salt and died suddenly. Celeste seems to have been activated by his death, I can feel her more clearly than I have in over a year. Neither Phil nor I should recruit or titan this one.

Did we ever get someone in Greece? Where are we thinnest at the moment?

...God, that came out callous. If Ren is Celeste-ish, maybe I'm Qing-ish at the moment.

i'm going to miss Ramon. Or, well, maybe I'll meet him again in a while and then I won't...

My first time losing someone I knew, even a little, this way. And it's so strange to think of death as... a utilitarian opportunity.

Actually, Ethan, you make a good point. We still had the one brilliant recruit in mind that we never used. I wonder if Ray would mind being a woman.

My recommended criteria: Find somebody who's good at math and who has that dispassionate, analytical mind. No-one can really duplicate what's inimitable, but those are qualities we'd miss very much if they were lost to us. (I am still not quite satisfied with that one aspect of Samuel. I miss being able to do quantum mechanics for entertainment. Not that Ramon and I transfer in similar ways--if he keeps anything he'll keep that--but it's been a bit tiresome struggling to understand what in the recent past was second nature.)

I also think that geography isn't a useful criterion for Ramon. He lives in his own head; what's outside of that is almost incidental.

Sorry, this has hit me harder than I'd have thought. I'd like to keep Ramon within a similar culture, if possible; dropping him into an area where he doesn't speak the language is giving a huge edge to the recruit. As for your idea, Phil, I honestly have no idea how he'd react to being a she, but most of us have spent a lifetime or two as a sex that didn't feel natural, and you remember how quickly we adjust. And that recruit is quite remarkable, and, yeah, good at math and has a wonderfully analytical mind. I'd like to see her used. I think that's a good idea.

Volunteers to approach the recruit, or should I find someone? I don't recall who found her in the first place.

Ramon's dust ritual will be 4PM GMT tomorrow. I hope you can all be there.

Ramon is back, as Ramon. We used the recruit Sarah. We're relieved to have him back in Salt, though we are sorry, of course, for Sarah's family. Sarah is survived by a mother and two younger sisters.

Sorry I missed Ramon's dust, guys. Looks like I've missed several over the last few years. It's been practically a flood.

How you settling in, Ramon?
