For the most part, these days, Yves was less interested in what mortals labelled as 'the occult' and more what they called 'science'. Honestly, in his mind the two were somewhat interchangeable. Potions were just drugs dressed up in pretty bottles, with slightly more exotic ingredients. Operations were dark magic rituals preformed under bright lights, where swapping out and removing bits, while funnelling in fresh blood and carefully picking the right poison to keep the subject alive, was painted in a strangely pleasant light.

So he switched between the two without a care, even letting them overlap on occasion. Though mixing the dark arts mortals called medicine or progress with the more obscure potions and rituals of his own kind, could, on occasion, result in some odd occurrences.

It had been a lovely day today, not too hot, not terribly cold, with a zero chance of precipitation. ...So the sudden thunderclouds and vicious downpour that rolled over central London in the span of twenty minutes was, actually, a bit shocking. Yves had been working on something special, but was aware he'd made a misstep when he heard the crack of thunder outside.

Making his way up from his basement, he grabbed an umbrella before stepping outside and looking up.

"Curious," he said mildly. Apparently mixing olanzapine with a weather stone, and the essence of a freshly killed wraith, had interesting side effects.

Hex had been caught in the storm and made a dash for the nearest doorway to save his clothes from getting soaked. He didn't fancy riding the tube home while drenched. It didn't matter how fast he ran, he was caught in the downpour, sputtering as he came to a stop.

"Sorry," he apologized. "That came out of nowhere. I thought it was dreary today, but nothing made me think we'd have more than a drizzle."

The man's voice was so familiar but he couldn't for the life of him recall why. He'd had that sort of thing happen more and more often now that he a had pint or two now and again.

"Sure it will," he agreed with a nod. Hex smiled as he peered at the sky once more, then shook his head. "Unbelievable. I never believe the weather reports anyway. Charlatans, if you ask me."

"I recon. But I've got this friend, see, and he'd say you can't predict anythong, only remember it," he said sagely.

"Too right," he nodded, then he offered his hand. "I'm Hex. I swear I know you from somewhere but I can't think of where right now."

He chuckled lightly, laughing that off as if drinking wasn't effecting him at all.

"Oh? Oh! Yeah, sure. That's it," he replied, covering his absent mindedness with a warm smile. "But your name slips me mind."

"Unnatural," Anael replied, coming to a stop beside the stranger. His shoulders were slightly hunched against the downpour, but he didn't seem bothered by how wet he was getting. If he was frowning up at the sky, it was because he knew winds, and the ones that had brought in the clouds so suddenly had not been right.

The question - and that voice - made Anael refocus his attention, from the heavy rain to the man beside him. Well, Fae, then, but apparently not one afraid of his brethren. "Both my skin and my faith would need a lot more to be harmed," Anael replied evenly, studying the Fae's face as he spoke.

"Are you responsible for it?" Anael asked curiously, denim jacket getting soaked through in the downpour. It was unnatural rain, and here was a Fae studying it. Of course he would ask.

"I could hurry it along," Anael stated, looking back up at the clouds, heedless of the raindrops spattering his face. "But the weather's been messed up enough for one day, I think." There was that human saying, about the butterfly's wings.

"Is that what you're doing in this world?" Anael asked curiously. "Thorough research?"

A downpour, a true downpour, Sunny had discovered after some time in London was really not that common. The city didn't do extremes. It never got very hot, nor very cold, nor very rainy. Oh, it rained and it rained constantly, but it rarely just came down like this.

That it came on so suddenly only made it all the stranger.

Sunny had come with no protection but that of a parasol, expecting sun. She had closed that and, rather than find cover, turned her face almost defiantly up to the sky.

It was only water, and being nearly June it wasn't so cold. She'd dry out.

"For the rain it raineth every day." Sunny's expression was darkening as she watched the sky. This was no natural storm, and yet it did not appear to be doing any further harm. Not yet anyway.

When she lowered her head again it took her a while to register Yves. Then she smiled a little. "I've seen worse."

And she had, both natural and unnatural.

Up went a translucent eyebrow. "What did you do?"
