Group Meeting (Madrox Squad)
Post by Jamie Madrox on Jul 17, 2007, 3:50pm

Jamie walks out from his office to one of the larger meeting rooms with several dupes in tow. Jamie prime is the only one empty handed, as the dupes carry various objects (boxes, files, clipboards, etc.). The boxes are set down under the table, while everything else is put down on one end of it as Jamie prime takes his seat there, reabsorbing all but two dupes who sit behind him.

"Now where are….oh yeah."

He hits the table and a new dupe pops out.

"Go use the PA, we forgot to tell people to show up."

The dupe nods and runs out of the room, several second later a message is heard over the PA system throughout the entire school.

"ALL STUDENTS WITH MADROX AS AN ADVISOR, PLEASE REPORT TO MEETING ROOM ONE ON THE GROUND FLOOR."

Moira walks into the meeting room, looking bored.

Nick follows, similairly not very intrested looking.

Liz slips in and slumps into a chair, dozing off quickly.

"Jeez, I bring new costumes for you kids and you fall asleep? What, you want I should go bring Deadpool back?"

Jamie pauses and closes a folder in front of him, putting both hands down on the table.

"Alright, I'm going to level with you guys. I'm not exactly much of a teacher, never have been. I was X-Factor's resident goofball, me and my buddy Guido. But Xavier himself asked me to come and sit down and get to know you kids, to try and help out. And I'll let you in on a little secret, I hated the idea. I wanted to go out and drink with Guido, or maybe give Rahne some hell. That's what I do."

He takes a little pause

"But then I saw what was going on around here, and I talked to a few of you. I sat down one night and read through every single one of your files, and you know what? I went from 'Boo! I don't want to teach!' to 'These kids deserve someone half way decent around'. So right now I'm here because I want to be here, and not because I was asked, but because I want to do it for you guys."

He takes a deep breath.

"And now that I've got that out of the way, who wants new costumes?"

I am silent.

Liz opens one eye and looks around.

"Costumes…? Ooo! Me! Me! I want a new costume!"


Re: Group Meeting (Madrox Squad)
Post by Jamie Madrox on Jul 17, 2007, 4:18pm

Jamie points at Liz.

"Now that's the excitement I was going for!"

He reaches into one of the boxes under the table and pulls out a wrapped up blastic bag with a folded costume in it.

"Pink, white, a saturn symbol for some reason, and plenty of pouches. Yep, this one's yours Liz."

He tosses the bag to her.

"Now who else? And remember, you can change into if you want, but this meeting isn't over just because you've got your new suit."

"What is it about then?"


Re: Group Meeting (Madrox Squad)
Post by Jamie Madrox on Jul 17, 2007, 4:44pm

"It's about me wanting to get to know you guys face to face instead of just by reading up your files. I know your backgrounds, and I know what you can do, but I want to get to know you guys. I mean, you're my kids, it's my job to look out for you and to steer you on the right path, so I'd like to not be one of those paper advisors that doesn't actively care about his students."

"Heh, that sounds really good."

I refrain from 'how long did you rehearse it' jokes.

"I hope you have fun with us malcontents."

"There's only one student that I'm going to be advising that I didn't personally request, so I'm sure this is going to be a good time."

Jamie reaches into the box and pulls out a bag containing a black outfit and tosses it to Nick.

"… Huh."

I hold it up.

"Not that I want to wear Pink, but shoulden't they kind of… match?"


Re: Group Meeting (Madrox Squad)
Post by Jamie Madrox on Jul 17, 2007, 5:18pm

"There's an X on the belt, it's good enough for me."

One of the dupes starts to chuckle.

"But nah, if we wanted them to match then you'd all be wearing the exact same outfit, and where's the fun in that? I've always has a unique costume, so has Alex, so have a lot of X-Men. So rather then throw you in all some generic conformity inducing spandex, we're trying to give everyone a bit more freedom."

"That's… a rather nice idea. I think Tom could have lasted a lot longer with you guys in charge.

Whatever happened to him anyway?"


Re: Group Meeting (Madrox Squad)
Post by Jamie Madrox on Jul 17, 2007, 6:15pm

«Nick's suit [image] »

"Mr. Ingine is…..we're working on that case right now. The statements that were presented were pretty contradictory depending on if you asked a human or a mutant involved, so it took a lot of favors to get him shifted to a facility that may keep his abilities neutralized. The only plus to that is that he's pretty much in Club Fed."

Jamie feels bad to lie about it, but he isn't in a position of power high enough to be honest and face unknown consequences.

"I do wish that we'd gotten here sooner, he seems like he would have been fun to have around if not for the murder and rampage."


Re: Group Meeting (Madrox Squad)

"He really didn't kill THAT MANY people…"

"Nah, not really, bad joke. He just needed some anger management classes."

"Can I get my suit now?" I whine, entering.


Re: Group Meeting (Madrox Squad)
Post by Jamie Madrox on Jul 17, 2007, 10:29pm

"You can, but in your case I'm still stuck having to figure out how to punish you for backtalking Havok."

"You could make me drink a sixpack of beer, it's how mom used to do it." I wink at him.


Re: Group Meeting (Madrox Squad)
Post by Jamie Madrox on Jul 17, 2007, 10:33pm

One of the dupes goes to run to get a six pack, but Jamie just grabs and reabsorbs.

"I was thinking something productive, but punishing is really hard to do when I was laughing my multitude of asses off at the situation."

Jamie reaches up to rub his chin, pondering a bit.

"I could assign you a few mandatory sessions in the danger room and call it even though."


Re: Group Meeting (Madrox Squad)
Post by Baby "Gravita" Tigo on Jul 17, 2007, 10:34pm

"Or you could just…"

Baby…really? You're going to challenge another teacher to a fight.

"…I'll agree to that if I get two beers."


Re: Group Meeting (Madrox Squad)
Post by Jamie Madrox on Jul 17, 2007, 10:37pm

"No beer."

He sighs

"I'm not trying to be the bad guy here. I mean, look…."

He pulls her costume out of the box and shakes the package.

"New costume in shiny plastic! I'm just trying to find a way to assign a stupid detention so I don't have Havok breathing stank breath on my neck."


Re: Group Meeting (Madrox Squad)
Post by Baby "Gravita" Tigo on Jul 17, 2007, 10:41pm

"Just gimme the DR stuff." I say, taking my costume.


Re: Group Meeting (Madrox Squad)
Post by Jamie Madrox on Jul 17, 2007, 10:43pm

"Alright, well, here's your first assignment then."

He puts a paper face down on the desk with a name on it.

"Havok is fully supportive of this, and, well, yours if you want it."


Re: Group Meeting (Madrox Squad)
Post by Baby "Gravita" Tigo on Jul 17, 2007, 10:49pm

"You're joking right?" I smile at him. "This is a dream come true."


Re: Group Meeting (Madrox Squad)
Post by Jamie Madrox on Jul 17, 2007, 10:56pm

"I thought you'd like it."

The remaining dupe tries to act proudly.

"You really went outside the box on your suit, compared to everyone else."


Re: Group Meeting (Madrox Squad)
Post by Baby "Gravita" Tigo on Jul 17, 2007, 11:02pm

"Uh-huh…yeah…" I say, still staring at the paper. "…what can't I do to…y'know…I mean will it be a simulation or really just the two of us? Oh, and is my outfit like, bulletproof?"


Re: Group Meeting (Madrox Squad)
Post by Jamie Madrox on Jul 17, 2007, 11:05pm

"Just the two of you, danger room, safeties on. Neither of you will know the scenario until it shows up, but call it an 'I quit' match."

He stops to think about her other question.

"I honestly don't know and don't recommend testing it."


Re: Group Meeting (Madrox Squad)
Post by Nick Nephrahim on Jul 17, 2007, 11:06pm

"Bulletproof WOULD be nice."


Re: Group Meeting (Madrox Squad)
Post by Jamie Madrox on Jul 17, 2007, 11:07pm

"Yours is, actually, all the full body ones are."

He glares at the package in Babys hand.

"Hers was a little bit…..different."


Re: Group Meeting (Madrox Squad)
Post by Baby "Gravita" Tigo on Jul 17, 2007, 11:07pm

"Oh don't be modest…" I whip it out of package. The thing is basically a nighty. "…it's fabulous."


Re: Group Meeting (Madrox Squad)
Post by Jamie Madrox on Jul 17, 2007, 11:11pm

"Maybe on Rahne or Teresa…."

Kids

"You can't wait to give that thing a test run, can you?"


Re: Group Meeting (Madrox Squad)
Post by Baby "Gravita" Tigo on Jul 17, 2007, 11:15pm

"I cannot. But don't look at me like that, Queer Eye helped me with it. Part of me suspects he's not so queer."


Re: Group Meeting (Madrox Squad)
Post by Jamie Madrox on Jul 17, 2007, 11:18pm

"Ask him yourself sometime, I quit trying to reabsorb him after he kept going on about some sales clerk. So he should be hanging out in one of the offices."

Rahne or Teresa, just think of Rahne or Teresa…..wait a second, Rahne AND Teresa…..better.

"I miss Tom… He would make jokes about how skimpy that outfit is."


Re: Group Meeting (Madrox Squad)
Post by Baby "Gravita" Tigo on Jul 17, 2007, 11:22pm

"Right on, Right on. Do you still need me here, because I'd like to go do something. Else. Somewhere else."


Re: Group Meeting (Madrox Squad)
Post by Jamie Madrox on Jul 17, 2007, 11:30pm

Sigh

"Yeah, fine, you're all dismissed. Next time I'll try and give you guys some advanced notice."

He reaches in and pulls the other packages from the box, sliding Moira's over to her and leaving Krystal and Josh's laying there.

"I encourage all of you to come by my office anytime you want, it's pretty much why I'm here. Go have a great day, tell Krystal and Josh if you see them to come by and get these from me, and we're going to be having a formal training session in a few days."

The dupe picks up the two packages and heads out ahead of Jamie.

"So I'll see you kids later. Stay out of trouble."

He heads out after his dupe.
