A Little Bit Of Insight (Set Up Topic)
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Aug 26, 2007, 3:55am

[Potentially slow moving- I’ll only be posting in it when my computer’s working right, so if I’m posting somewhere else but not here, that’s why.]

A dark haired man stands in the Wreck room, his hands firmly placed in his pockets, wearing a wrinkled suit and a cigarette placed behind his ear. He seems to be staring at the wall, looking at nothing in particular.

Adam wanders over to the strange man. He looks at him for a moment, silently contemplating the situation, before speaking up.

"Hi!"

"The first time I saw the Descendents, they were the fastest band I'd ever seen.
No one in the crowd really cared for them, we were waiting for The Alley Cats to play.
After a couple months I heard Kabuki Girl, on Rodney On The Roo late Sunday night;
That was enough for me, I hopped the bus to Licorice Pizza and bought my all time favorite record."

Torrance drops her headphones to her neck, stops singing, and lowers the player volume, but NOFX is still launching into a tinny second verse.

"Um. Hello," she points to his ear. "Carry a spare?"


Re: A Little Bit Of Insight (Set Up Topic)
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Aug 26, 2007, 4:09am

He glances away from the wall.

"A few." He takes a packet out of his jacket pocket and tosses it at her. "Got a light?"

He smiles wryly at Adam.

"Where’re the rest of your lot?"


Re: A Little Bit Of Insight (Set Up Topic)
Post by Sadie "Suicide Queen" Hannoura on Aug 26, 2007, 4:12am

She inspects the pack, tucks a cigarette into her lip, and tosses the pack back, then flings a Playboy bunny Zippo with the other hand.

"Probably playing pattycake," she mumbles in response to the question, adjusting her bra through her bloodstained white tank top.


Re: A Little Bit Of Insight (Set Up Topic)
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Aug 26, 2007, 4:14am

He glances at the lighter before lighting the end of the cigarette and passing it back.

"Classy. Suppose I should introduce myself. Pete Wisdom, at your service." He nods to both Torrance and Adam. "Now; tit for tat, and all of that?"


Re: A Little Bit Of Insight (Set Up Topic)
Post by Sadie "Suicide Queen" Hannoura on Aug 26, 2007, 4:17am

Pocketing the lighter and combining it with an indifferent shrug, she makes a move to stand by Adam.

"Chance Snow, formerly of the Xavier Massachussets Academy," she offers, extending her hand.


Re: A Little Bit Of Insight (Set Up Topic)
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Aug 26, 2007, 4:21am

"Snow? Quaint."

He shakes her hand then takes the cigarette out of his mouth, blowing smoke out to the side.

"I know your names, love, I was just trying to be polite. Why you chose to pretend it was that, I can’t for the life of me, fathom."

As if on cue.

"And your name isn't exactly comforting. Pete Wisdom? Didn't your group…"

He puts his hands and makes the quote gesture.

"'…kill' this team a while ago?"

"Different person, mate. I was mostly just along for the ride. I’m here with an offer – an olive branch after that whole mess."

He flicks his head in William’s direction, glancing him over once.

"Aren’t you two meant to be on that team of delinquents that blew up that town? Though I don’t blame you for skipping out on that. Too much drama, even for me."

"Bond doesn’t hold a torch, mate," he muses, still smirking.

"I’m here with an offer- a chance for you to clear the team’s good name, so to speak. Black Air is interested in you again. Don’t ask me why; I’ll sure as hell find out, but for now it’s just orders from high, ‘I’m not at liberty to disclose that blah blah blah secret’."

"First of all: 'good name?' Come on. Second: why would we agree to something when you wont tell us anything? And why wouldn't they tell you anything, for that matter? Were all the competent people on vacation? Third: how much are you planning on paying us?

And another thing, don't give her cigarettes, she's trying to quit."

"Paying you? Bloody hell, I don’t know! Not my concern; and everything’s on a ‘need to know’ basis- all of that bullshit. Frankly, they’re short-handed right now, and I think they’re impressed with you lot. Less so with you, because you haven’t been with them, but that’s a different matter.

"What you’ll be doing, is working for Black Air. You’ll get a handler assigned to you, and you’ll have the chance to make good for that train incident. Give people another positive look at mutants, too. You’ll be having an affirmative affect globally. That's the sale's pitch, at least.

"Children. Children and Darkforce creatures. They sent me down to deal with bloody children."

Wisdom drops the cigarette and stamps it out, turning to Orchestra.

"You first," he says, leaving out the part where he already knows.

Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Aug 26, 2007, 9:23am

"Dogs are creatures, human. Monkeys are creatures, human. I am not a 'creature." I hiss.

"I am Orchestra, formerly of the tribe New Mutants, now of the tribe Generation X, last of the Thrice-Steppers - of descent from the Shadowcaster. My true name is not given away to those who have yet to prove there are made forged from the cloth of valor."

"Now you." I say, wrapping my tongue around his shadow and taking his form. "Cheerio, pip, pip, wot."

I'm going to drink so I don't recall any of that later.


Re: A Little Bit Of Insight (Set Up Topic)
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Aug 26, 2007, 9:25am

He’s read about what Orchestra can do, but when he sees it, it’s a little different. When he sees it, he’s a little sickened- but not as much as he is by Orchestra’s 'English' vernacular.

"That's… disgusting, mate. Name's Pete Wisdom, and I'm here to see about the future of your 'tribe', here."

"Try it," he smirks.

"Would be a bloody bad idea, though. You're all far down enough as it is, and you're going to heap onto that by offing Black Air's best? Not too bright, are you?"

Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Aug 26, 2007, 9:35am

"I don't fear Black Air." I smirk, reaching onto the ground and plucking up the cigarette remains, which I then plop into my mouth and begin chewing.

Spicy.

"I only fear the Queen herself. Now why don't you explain exactly what you're here for, pleasantly if you don't mind. Don't be tossing around anymore of them vague threats. I know you know wot I can do, and I know you know that I'll hurt like the dickens."


Re: A Little Bit Of Insight (Set Up Topic)
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Aug 26, 2007, 9:38am

[There's no cigarette behind his ear. It's on the floor, stamped out :P.]

"You know what I can do, though, hm?"

He points a finger at Orchestra, like he's holding a gun, and then end sparks up.

"Ever visited the surface of the sun? Felt the heat, the pain? Doubt it. Me neither, but I know that this thermal knife is just as bad."

He closes his hand into a fist, bringing it back down to his side, still smirking.

"I'm here to offer you all a position within Black Air, as I've already said; you can fix where you've scuffed up already, and you can do your friends over the pond some good that way. And, well… refusal will be met with the forceful acquisition of your establishment here. Got it, mate?"

"And the Queen's a ponce. No idea why you'd fear her."

"Bring it, cunt. This tribe will not be be bonded under another without a proper fight." I say, shedding off his shadow, giving it a kick as it scurries back to him.

"And I'm not the one who fears the Queen, just something I picked up deep down in your pathetic human mind. You might want to have that checked out, along with your love of high school girls, mate Sod off, piss off, wank off. Do one, or all. Leave this place."

"Not happening. Now, I suggest you get whoever's in charge, or fix your tone. Preferably both. You know the only reason this place hasn’t been brought down around your ears is because you’re of use. If my bosses figure you’re not that, either? Say g’night."

"You're each of you coming off less intelligent than the last. At least the Goth chick didn't seem like a bloody caricature."

He turns away from Orchestra, cleary becoming disinterested.

"Whoever fancies themself in charge should come find me. This offer has an expiration date, and they'd be smart to accept it, for all of your sakes. Right now, I'm being polite about it, but you're making things harder for yourself in the long run."

"Hm. Overrated Wakandan crap. Has Cassidy picked a team leader? Using the word 'team' loosely, of course."

He takes the cigarette packet out of his jacket pocket, and pulls another cigarette out, lighting it with the end of his finger before placing it in his mouth, his gaze still cast in Orchestra and William's direction.

We need a quick, competent force who can mobilise easily and’re used to the field, until the rest of Black Air gets its shit in order and sends us people for it. There’s an invasion going on, wouldn’t you know? Well, no, you wouldn’t, and I doubt you’ll hear anything else about it. Ever. We’re short staffed, so, that little force? That’s where you come in.

"You know how this works by now, your time with Interpol. Co-operate and everything's roses."

Sean purses his lips and stares at Wisdom for a very long time.

"I want two promises from ye, at the outset, or ye can shove off. One, ye'll be treatin' us with respect and decency. Two, we'll be allowed to stop workin' for ye at any time we see fit."

Wisdom places both of his hands in his pockets, staring at the ground and frowning heavily. A beat passes. And another.

"This is far more than anyone else’d give you, you know that? Considering what this lot’s done, I could just take you all by force. Add on top of the ring (which we found, by the way- don’t know if they’ve told you about all that stuff yet) and the train crap, that two counts of assaulting a high ranking Black Air operative."

He runs his hand across his forehead, still frowning heavily, and then sighs.

"Deal. I’ll do everything in my power to see to that accord, which, while I’m lower down than most people, is a surprising amount when I’m waving a knife hot as the sun in their bloody faces. The respect thing, though- I’m only going to treat them with as much as they give me, got that? None of this crap I got today. They show me respect, I’ll act in turn. It's the way of the world, as well y'know from your record, Cassidy."

Sean grits his teeth, and extends his hand hesitantly. "Deal…fer th' moment, at least."

"Pleasure doing business with you, oh, wise and venerable 'schoolmaster'." The smirk returns to his face and he takes Sean's hand, shaking it gently but firmly.

"So you don’t have a team member at the moment? The goth chick said something about the redhead being in for a penny, but she doesn’t seem to be a beacon of confidence in the matter. And the other one, the one who said he was in charge ‘til a replacement’s picked he had the intelligence to try and attack me. At least the little petal got the hit in. Doesn’t scream leader material- either of them. That’s a little worrying. People in disarray with big red down?"

"We're in a transitional period," Sean says flatly.

"I see that."

The smile slides off of his face and he glances away for a moment.

"Listen, Cassidy- all our bullshit aside, so long as your interests are my interests, I'm also here to help you with anything you need. You, your staff, your students as students, or your students as a team- any of their needs."

Wisdom takes Sean's hand again and pulls his back a moment later, leaving his card in Sean's hand. He takes a few steps towards the door then glances back.

"You need anything, you give me a call, yeah?"

"Sure," Sean nods slightly.

"Right. Well… with that said, I’ve gotta tell you, I really feel to need to tell you how much I bloody hate you," he grins. "Just to even things out. G'bye, mate."

Wisdom turns around and walks out, giving an off-handed wave without looking as he does so.

"I'll be around."

"Only if God well and truly hates me…" Sean mutters under his breath, and heads back to his office.
