Hopefully a hangover…«Gen M 13 Aftermath»
Post by havok3595 on Feb 15, 2008, 1:05am

The mutants in the UK wake up and drag themselves to a convenient media outlet. Wreck's in the coffee bar in Mexico. The people in China are…somewhere. And everyone else on the field team was in Offpanelia. But everyone sees the top news story.

While the team was out, some big changes took place back home.

Genosha has been nuked down to bedrock.

I look over the headline about three times. I hear it about a half dozen times. Then when I see it in print, it sinks in. Genosha's gone. My home's gone. The bint that did this…

Who am I kidding? I'm not going to do anything. There's not anything I can do. It's all I can do to hold myself together right now… but I'm not going to do that thing. Break down, show real weakness in front of these people… in front of any people. I don't do that thing any more. Not even over this.

"Bloody Moses bugger… I need a drink."

I come back from the bathroom after a few minutes of randomly tapping at my ear - can't get a hold of Mariah Hill. Surprise, surprise. Knowing that bitch, she probably expected me to die on that island.

I'm more than a little surprised, by all this, but I'm trying to keep my cool - as cold as it sounds, I'd just gotten there and didn't really know anyone. I'm freaked, yeah, just not as much as everyone else.

"Got to be a joke." I nod Nephy's way, hoping to calm her down a bit. She looks ready to pop. "Just…just chill. I'm sure there's an explanation for all this."

Khan tries to pry him self from the drug induced dazed…the news report playing over, and over in his head, only more vivid, and more surreal. He is sweating profusely, and the words Failed, Failure, and Lost are on loop in his mind. Though in reality he seems to be unable to focus on anything coherently, and is babling profusely about something.

At a bus stop in Offpanelia, the two Nadias have stopped loathing each other long enough to sit on a bench with their heads together. There's a newspaper at their feet, with a headline they can't read but a picture worth a couple thousand words at least. One tears up a little, the other pats her on the back. Neither speaks.

Sir Justin sat in a bar. Allen was always amazed at the transformation he witnessed when during these nights. What was once a dignified old man who exuded the aura of perfect nobility degenerated into a partying drunk whenever he touched the drink. Allen witnessed that it was the same with the rest of the knights. His comrades in arms, all serving under the same lord, the night before they march to war, all drinking and whoring without a shed of dignity.

They're like animals…

That was what Allen thought as he brought his master's drink to him. Unfortunately his master could also be unpredictable when he touched his drink. This was demonstrated when he promptly grabbed Allen, using one arm to put him in a headlock and the other to noogie his head. Not unlike a schoolyard bully. The other men laughed as Allen's face turned red.

"Let go! You stupid drunk!"

He tried freeing himself, reminded again of how the old bastard was ridiculously strong for his age. He got clouted in the head for his efforts.

"That's no way to address your Knight. I should run my blade through you for your insolence."

Allen wasn't scared, he'd been with him long enough to know when he was jesting him.

"You're no Knight right now you stupid git. You're just another drunk!"

Sir Justin looked thoughtful for a second.

"I'll teach you another lesson Allen. Even though you're an ungrateful brat. Do you know why we're partying today?"

His breath smelled of alcohol.

"Because you're drunk."
"That too," The old man laughed, "But tomorrow we go off to war, and not all of us will live to see another day."
"Right now it seems like you'll live to be a hundred."
"As it may seem, but people die quickly in this world brat. Mountains crumble, kingdoms collapse, friends and comrades are killed, all in a single heartbeat. The world is ruled by God's whim boy, and in the end the only constant in life is death."
"…"

Allen was about to retort, but he was quickly tossed on the dirty wood floor before he could. The table roared with laughter again.

"Now go clean my armor you lazy lout. Hard work will wipe that insolence out of you."

Allen grumbles and leaves.


"Hate it when you're right old man… Sure, a bar sounds good right now."

"Pub. We're going to a pub, mate. Difference. Come on, we'll get bevvied up enough to forget about this all for a while. That, or we'll drink to those poor sods in Genosha." Aniela turns on her heel and heads towards the nearest inn.

"Huh. 'The Prancing Pony'," she says, reading the sign before walking in. "Someone's been reading too much sodding Lord of the Rings."


Re: Hopefully a hangover…«Gen M 13 Aftermath»
Post by doodleboy on Feb 15, 2008, 5:19pm

Allen already left most of his arms back in the castle.

"Well I don't really give a crap on the name as long as the beer is good."

He walks in. Hanging the Duster by the rack.

"Going to have to do the god damn hero for hire crap again, am I?"


Re: Hopefully a hangover…«Gen M 13 Aftermath»
Post by star on Feb 15, 2008, 5:21pm

"You were a hero for hire? Like those yanks, Power Man and Iron Fist?" Aniela keeps her coat on, because it's the only thing covering her gun. She taps the pub counter. "Just get us a half dozen pitchers, yeah? We'll need them."


Re: Hopefully a hangover…«Gen M 13 Aftermath»
Post by doodleboy on Feb 15, 2008, 5:27pm

"Don't even know who those two are… aside from picking crappy names. Che…"

He sits down.

"Not like there was anything else to do."


Re: Hopefully a hangover…«Gen M 13 Aftermath»
Post by star on Feb 15, 2008, 5:30pm

"Power Man's lame, but Iron Fist's aces, actually." The pub-keeper hands her a tray with the pitchers on. "Five by five; let's find somewhere in the back where we're not going to be tempted to kick some ugly bugger's head in." Aniela picks up the tray and carries it to a table in a fairly dark corner at the back of the pub.

"So, leave much back in Genosha?"


Re: Hopefully a hangover…«Gen M 13 Aftermath»
Post by doodleboy on Feb 15, 2008, 5:45pm

"Nothing much."

He takes a drink.

"Now I have to start over from square one again, sucks. But I figure you'd probably left a fair bit more back there."


Re: Hopefully a hangover…«Gen M 13 Aftermath»
Post by star on Feb 15, 2008, 5:47pm

"Yeah. Right pain… all my body suits, my guns, my CDs, that kind of stuff. I'll probably go out shopping tomorrow. See what I can replace. Bloody nuke." Aniela stops talking when she starts drinking - and doesn't start talking again until she's downed the whole pitcher.

"Bit of sodding warning would've been nice. I'd like to have got my stuff out, at least."


Re: Hopefully a hangover…«Gen M 13 Aftermath»
Post by doodleboy on Feb 15, 2008, 5:54pm

"Not exactly what I was talking about darlin'."

Finishing his glass.

"Although it could've been worse, we could've been there."


Re: Hopefully a hangover…«Gen M 13 Aftermath»
Post by star on Feb 15, 2008, 5:57pm

"Yeah? What were you talking about? 'Cause that's all I left that's important to me." Aniela drums her fingers lazily on the table top, not quite ready to start her next pitcher yet.


Re: Hopefully a hangover…«Gen M 13 Aftermath»
Post by doodleboy on Feb 15, 2008, 6:07pm

"Humph, then that's a shame."

Post by star on Feb 15, 2008, 6:09pm

Aniela slides the next pitcher over to herself, resting an elbow on the table and slumping forwards slightly. "I vote for staying around here. Well, not Scotland. Scotland's full of wankers. England. London's fun this time of year."


Re: Hopefully a hangover…«Gen M 13 Aftermath»

Post by star on Feb 15, 2008, 6:18pm

"Maybe we should just leave him here. He's a bit of a hostile ass. Bit of a ponce at it, too." Aniela starts on the pitcher, putting it away far quicker than should be healthy. "I'm just glad his rudding power wore off of me."


Re: Hopefully a hangover…«Gen M 13 Aftermath»
Post by doodleboy on Feb 15, 2008, 9:00pm

"Right. I suppose you know him better then me. Although I'd rather let him tag along if he wants. Even if he's a dick being alone in a strange land is a pretty crappy deal, that's from personal experience…. Hm… Maybe you should slow down a little."


Re: Hopefully a hangover…«Gen M 13 Aftermath»
Post by star on Feb 15, 2008, 9:02pm

"I've spoken to him maybe three, four times. So I don't know him a whole deal better," Aniela answers. She slides the empty pitcher away from her and slides another one into her hand.

"I'm fine. I can handle some drink. I guess we could take him along with us. He's going to be annoying, snarky and sarcastic the whole way through, though."


Re: Hopefully a hangover…«Gen M 13 Aftermath»
Post by doodleboy on Feb 15, 2008, 9:26pm

"Isn't some."

"Well if he gets too annoying he can always be left at some gas station somewhere."

"Heh, trust me darlin' it can always get worse. And even when you seem to have made it through the wall of crap, there's always more coming through. Misery's everywhere and the only way through it is to keep on fighting."

"But if you want to hit him, go ahead."

Post by star on Feb 16, 2008, 1:45am

"What I really want to do is shoot that stupid hat." Aniela picks up one of the empty pitchers and bounces it in her hand, weighing it to herself while she considers whether or not to do it. Then she lobs it at the back of the guy's head. The pitcher shatters on contact, knocking him out.

"But I guess I'll have to settle for knocking the sodding thing off."

"Don't think we will." Aniela smirks, watching bowler hat man topple off of his stool and hit the floor with a satisfying 'thump'.

"Plans? Pfft! No! Plans are boring!" Aniela insists, taking a pull from the pitcher - the last one she has. "Just go along with whatever happens!" She eyes the closest table - a little further into the light, that one. "Hey, you'd rather a tussle? Bet we could arrange one."

"Don't be such a bloody mope, it'll be fun! Here." Aniela rolls up one of the napkins, dips it in her beer, and throws it at the guy in front of her. He spins around to face them with a slightly shocked glare.

"What the fuck? I'm gonna—"

"Hey! Sod off, yeah? Accidents happen! Like, if I 'accidentally' fastball this pitcher at your head, it'll 'accidentally' knock you the fuck out." Aniela holds the pitcher up in the air for a moment, before moving to put it down again. Then lobs it at the guy's head, letting it smash over him.

"Eh." She sits down calmly again. The guy's friend turns around with a start, getting off of his stool. "The hell? What the deuce'd you do that for, you bloody crazy bint?!"

"Seemed like fun," Aniela shrugs, sliding her jacket off "Feel like getting started, Rufus?"


Re: Hopefully a hangover…«Gen M 13 Aftermath»
Post by doodleboy on Feb 16, 2008, 7:41pm

"Crazy gal…"

Allen gets up staring at the other guy impassively. Might as well see how this situation turns before intervening. If he attacks himself or her then he'll do what he does best.

"Is this gonna be a regular thing?"


Re: Hopefully a hangover…«Gen M 13 Aftermath»
Post by star on Feb 16, 2008, 7:44pm

"Probably. Want to see who gets the most?" Aniela asks Allen, glancing at him.

"What, are you kidding me? You're a little girl! You're not gonna—" the guy's response is cut short when Aniela breaks his jaw.

"Shut up. And who're you calling little, you dumb sod? I'm as tall as you are!"

"Maybe, but least I won't be going frilly cuffs and collars." No-one responds to Allen - they all just stare at him for a moment. Then Aniela kicks one of them in the ribs, and the pub goes up in a roar, a handful of them staggering at both Aniela and Allen.

"You've got to admit - it's more fun than sitting here drinking our bloody wits away."

"Che…"

The closest one gets his wrist grabbed mid-punch, as he trips and flips him over with a single hand. He's not going to bring out the daggers for a fight like this.

"Maybe so. Either way though, it's the same deal. Just means a couple of poor bastards have to go home all bruised up on the way."

Like the one whose arm he just dislocated.

Post by star on Feb 16, 2008, 8:57pm

"Quit it already," Aniela grins, leaning back and away from a punch, tapping the guy's wrist away lightly at first and then knocking him senseless with a spinning kick to his jaw.

"Didn't peg you to be such a whiner. Like going to a bar with my bleeding mum, I swear…. We knock a few blokes silly, we have a little fun… I reckon it sounds like a good outing. Nothing to bitch over."

"Thought not."

She gets a hook driven across her jaw while she's looking at the door, and staggers back from it. "Ow! Hey, that's enough! Stupid git." She spins a palm across the guy's forehead, knocking him for a loop. "Back to us. Why would I fib about a thing like that?"

"Good. I hate shrinks." She grabs someone who's making a valiant effort of drinking peacefully, and slams his face onto her knee repeatedly. " 'So how does that make you feel?' " Smash. " 'How does that make you feel?' " Smash. " 'How does that make you feel?' " She lets go of his head, and he falls back, battered.

"Like smashing your bloody face in, that's how." Aniela pauses there a moment, taking in the odd looks she's getting. "Uh, yeah. Shrink issues."

"It was cute for a while, but fun's over."

One hand on Aneila's shoulder as he pretty much drags her out of the pub.

"What? No, sod that, I'm gonna—" Aniela twists away from his grip. If she was sober, she could probably get free without too much trouble at all - and then, knowing her, probably deck him for his troubles. Fairly drunk, though, she doesn't get any ground.

"Okay, completely pissed out of my bloody wits here. But if I wasn't, I'd do something. Whatever that 'gonna' was gonna be… not sure what it was going to be, actually." She drops down onto the ground, crossing her legs where she sits. "Least go get my jacket from inside there for me, yeah?"

He walks back inside getting her jacket, fixing the guy's dislocated arm and getting his Duster on the way. He walks back out.

"You know, starting a brawl is one thing, and fighting a couple of drunken punks is another. Beating up the poor guy who didn't really want to be involved… well, that's just being a prick now isn't it, eh?"

He hands her the jacket.

"Who said I'm not one? Pretty sure I never said I wasn't one," Aniela says, getting up and slipping her jacket on. "Besides, he was a lurker. Kind of one that waits about, lets things dwindle a bit then jumps in - usually blindsides some poor sod or something. Had the glint. Hate guys who aren't on the up and up."

"Well crime before punishment and all that crap."

"Only if you're some bug-ass liberal ponce. Me? I don't have that hang-up. Anyone dumb git wants to even think of screwing around, he's going to get pounded. Preventative measures, you know?" Aniela pats her jacket pocket. "Sodding hell. My bleeding cigarettes must've fallen out."

"Liberal? Nah, nothing like that crap. Just the way I live."

He digs in his pockets and tosses a pack to Aniela.

"Ta." Aniela catches it and pulls one out, lighting it in short order. Taking a quick drag, she continues. "Well. I'm more the preventative kind. Stop something before it happens, it's all aces. None of the damn fall-out from taking a hit. Take Genosha, for example." She jabs the air with the cigarette, staggering up to her feet shakily and brushing herself down.

"We'd have found whoever nuked it before it happened, offed them, we wouldn't be dealing with that. You might think I'm talking apples and oranges, but it's the same principle. Granted, it's on a whole other scale, but… Christ alive. All we wanted was to change the world a little, y'know? No big deal. Not get all bloody hell blown out of us with a sodding nuke."

"People who want to change things get alot of people wanting to see them offed. But fuck, with everybody saying how great's and powerful the late Magneto was, I'd figured he wouldn't have been wacked that easily."

"No idea, mate; it could happen. Man had stones — and amazing pecs - guy's what, eighty something? — but he spent most of his time god knows where. Rumour had it, in some place in the woods. Could've never seen it coming."

Aniela shrugs, leaning forwards into another drag. Pulling the cigarette from her lips, she taps its stem and lets a few ashes drop to the floor.

"Home's gone, lad. Got to settle somewhere else now."
