>You have knowledge of what the technology is used for except for specialized equipment
>You also know about what to do to not damage electronics keeping magnets away from electronics and vhs tapes.
>If you also know what parts are valuable such as the super conducting wires in an old hoover car
>You do understand that the TVs in front of the shop need electricity that isn't lightning or static electricity.

>The TVs look like they are from the late twenty century.
->They are to big and boxy to be from the twenty-first.
-->Definitely pre GR. 

>"Are they valuable?", Marisa asks with more than a hint of curiosity.

>Do modern day fae and youkai make use of technology, or are we traditionalist and stick to the medieval era ways?
>How many years are between the end of the 20th century and GR?

>"Well, they definitely look to be pre-21st century. So an antique collector might have a use for them, but that depends on whether or not they're operational, as that will definitely affect the value. Unfortunately, to see that we'd need to hook them up to a power source and try to turn them on. We'd also have to consider the general condition they're in. Even if it works, somebody might not want one that's in bad shape."

>Fae and youkai make use of technology.
->They even use magic to complement technology.

>55 years

>Marisa taps her chin
>"Hmm, I could ask her. . . and they. . .that could work."
>"A bit surprising that people would pay for a box to hold a picture."

>"Well, television programs are quite entertaining for some. Plus, provided you have the right equipment, or -- on 21st century models and later -- access to the Internet, there's the fact that you can watch movies on them in the comfort of your home as well."
>Are there any movies or TV shows we're fond of, or do we not partake in such?
>What is our opinion of the Internet?

>Marisa looks unconvinced

>There are a few channels that use different golems* to make shows tailored to your personal tastes

>Shows by Tengu tend to talk about how great they are and show off their martial skills, trolls cooking and fighting, and giants smithing and fighting.

>Fae that use glamour don't make shows while the others can be described as the same as the humans' except more in every sense of word.

>The decline of human numbers and disrepair of the servers has led to the internet shrinking
>There are a few nonhuman websites on the internet with most other species creating their own separate internet

>Please pick your character's opinion on shows and the internet

*She refers to robots and A.I. as golems

>Are movies that humans refer to as "classics" such as say, "Star Wars", "Die Hard", "Terminator", "Godzilla", "Monty Python and the Holy Grail", etc. still available in our time or is it mostly supplanted by modern human and fae-made things?
>>Does Star Wars with an all Fae/Youkai cast exist?

>"All in all Movies and TV are just a medium to tell stories in a visual format. It's a bit like reading a book, instead you're watching a screen and you can actually see what's happening before your very eyes."

>Are there Fae/Youkai in space to our knowledge?
>Do the Lunarians have a claim in modern society, or are they still militant isolationists? Are we even aware of their existence?

>The classics are available though they can be hard to get to due to various factors from golems enforcing copyright laws of dead nations, websites going down, to data corruption.
->You had a couple you bartered with and sold copies of.

>There are some very nice knockoffs of Star Wars made by the Tengu.

>Djinn have started colonizing some of the other planets.
->There are rumors of gods and their followers moving to less crowded worlds.

>The only Lunarians you know of are Chang'e, some youkai rabbits who pound food and medicine, and Twardowski.
->Chang'e has worshippers on Earth and fae have gone to make deals with Twardowski concerning his knowledge.

>"Sounds like something the kappa would make."

>"I'd heard there aren't many youkai in the outside world, but it sounds like there's a lot of fairies where ya come from."

>Marisa starts fiddling with a TV
>"So do ya have a power source on ya?"

>"Well, not exactly, Fae, or Fair Folk, is sort of a catch-all term for supernatural folk in the west, sort of like how Youkai is the main term in the east. There are differences, but that's probably the most simple explanation. For instance, before I ended up in the body of this fairy here, I was a Sidhe. Irish Hillfolk."

>"As for your question, unfortunately no, and I wouldn't recommend using lightning magic or static electricity either. Most TVs from that era run on electricity provided by wires that emit a constant current. The wires themselves are given energy from a power plant, which is a structure made for the sole purpose of generating energy. Besides, you would still need a cable, satellite, or wifi signal to actually watch things on it unless you hooked up a DVD or VHS player to it. Otherwise you'd just get a screen full of static."
>Are there magical power plants?
>Do we know the difference between AC and DC power?

>Marisa nods
>"Yeah, I haven't met any folks who call themselves fae except the fairies on occasion."

>Marisa thinks deeply
->"I bet Kourindou has some players!"
-->The witch vanishes through the building's entrance

>There are magical power plants.
->The ones you've seen tend to be in the middle of human settlements and on the outskirts of Fae villages.

>You do.  It has saved you from hauling useless junk too many times to count.

>You step into the store

>The store has shelves filled with extension wires, walkmans, lamps, clocks, and various other items.
->There are tables with books, typewriters, and computers.

>The feeling of magic emanates from the back near one of the corners.

>Marisa is in the back in front of a counter with a man with silver hair.

>The man's golden eyes meet yours, "This is a store and not a place to play."
>"She isn't a fairy.  She's a sidhe."

>The man gives you a dubious look, "It sounds like a prank."

>"Well, to be more accurate, I'm a Sidhe trapped in a fairy's body. I had a rather unfortunate encounter with a Magic Mirror and Marisa here was bringing me here hoping that there was a lead as to its location. However, we ended up getting a little sidetracked when I noticed the antique televisions outside. Oh, and where are my manners."
>Curtsey
>"My name is Eillia. Unfortunately, I don't know the name of this body's proper owner, if she even has one. I must say, you have quite the impressive collection of antique technology in here."

>"Rinnosuke Morichika, welcome to Kourindou."
>"I apologize for earlier.  Fairies have damaged my merchandise past."
>"Still it is a pleasure to meet someone as sophisticated and with a discerning eye such as yourself."

>"I wish I could help with the mirror, but I already sold it," He says with a bit of sadness and pity.

>"Who'd ya sell it to?"

>"They said their name was Ajies."

>Fidget a bit.
>"Any idea how to get into contact with them? I'm pretty sure that mirror would be instrumental in separating me from this fairy. Not to mention that it could potentially lead to more accidents like what happened to me..."

>Rinnosuke shakes his slowly
>"I'm afraid not.  They didn't leave information other than their name."

>"Come on, you gotta know something."

>The man thinks deeply for a minute before his eyes widen with realization
->"I had forgotten, but they bought the mirror because they broke it with a broom."
>"Unfortunately I cannot give a description due to how they were dressed."

>Pinch our nose and sigh.
>"Might not be worth going after it in that case if it's broken. It might not even be operable now..."
>Hope that this 'Ajies' enjoys their 7 years of misfortune.
