«I'll go with Luke Skywalker…Cracker Farm Boy…

Hooper: For years in this industry, whenever an African American character, hero or villain, was introduced - usually by white artists and writers - they got slapped with racist names that singled them out as Negroes. Now, my book, "White-Hating Coon," don't have none of that bullshit. The hero's name is Maleekwa, and he's descended from the black tribe that established the first society on the planet, while all you European motherfuckers were hiding out in caves and shit, all terrified of the sun. He's a strong role model that a young black reader can look up to. Cause I'm here to tell you, the chickens is coming home to roost, y'all. The black man's no longer gonna play the minstrel in the realm of comics and sci-fi fantasy. We keepin it real, and we gonna get respect by any means necessary.

Holden: Ah, come on, that's a bunch of horse shit! Lando Calrissian was a black guy. You know, and he got to fly the Millennium Falcon, what's the matter with you?

Hooper: Who said that?

Holden: I did! Lando Calrissian is a strong role-model in the realm of science fiction/fantasy.

Hooper: Fuck Lando Calrissian! Uncle-Tom nigger! Always some white boy gotta invoke the holy trilogy. Bust this: those movies are about how the white man keep the brother man down, even in a galaxy far, far away. Check this shit: You got cracker farm boy Luke Skywalker, Nazi poster boy, blond hair, blue eyes. And then you got Darth Vader, the blackest brother in the galaxy, Nubian god!

Banky Edwards: What's a Nubian?

Hooper: Shut the fuck up! Now… Vader, he's a spiritual brother, y'know, down with the force and all that good shit. Then this cracker, Skywalker, gets his hands on a light saber and the boy decides he's gonna run the fuckin' universe; gets a whole clan of whites together. And they go and bust up Vader's hood, the Death Star. Now what the fuck do you call that?

Banky Edwards: Intergalactic civil war?

Hooper: Gentrification! They gon' drive out the black element to make the galaxy 'safe' for white folks. And Jedi's the most insulting installment! Because Vader's beautiful black visage is sullied when he pulls off his mask to reveal a feeble, crusty, old white man! They tryin' to tell us that deep inside we all wants to be white!

Banky Edwards: Well… isn't that true?

[Hooper pulls out his gun, shoots Banky]

The New Mutants are outside the mansion, during training. Nightcrawler and Sam are leading the training, with Nightcrawler being a teleporting target. At the moment, he's teleported in the air, about six feet above them, challenging the NM able to, to manage to tag him. with Sam advising them on tactics to do so.

Post by Zephyr on Jun 21, 2007, 10:37am

For a moment, Marisol didn't understand what Orchestra could mean. As far as she knew, a slinky was…

She decided not to question it and simply do it. Her body turned thin and wrapped itself up around itself as fast as she could manage. She then lowered herself to act as a springboard for Orchestra…

Sam is hovering in the air, smiling, "I remember being terrible at this! You guys are lucky you didn't know me back! I ended up crashing into my teammates about as much as I did the bad guys…"

"Watch for his patterns, and that fowl smell. He's gonna be a little predictable in the beginning, but that's just to help you guys catch on."

I nod and leap onto Marisol, bouncing up into the air and snatching her shadow at the same time, becoming a gigantic ringed projectile flying towards Nightcrawler.

Post by Starheart on Jun 21, 2007, 10:42am

*BAMF* Nightcrawler is now behind the New Mutants, Zephyr and Orchestra being headed for the same spot. Nightcrawler gives a laugh, apparently having timed it for a collision.


Re: New Mutants #130 - All Your Yesterdays
Post by Zephyr on Jun 21, 2007, 10:44am

Marisol retook a humanoid form, albeit with half a dozen eyes looking in different directions. She had to keep track of Nightcrawler's position at all times.

This time, however, his laughter gave away his position. Marisol whirled around, turning her hands into long tentacles, and sending them at him as fast as she could.

Post by Starheart on Jun 21, 2007, 10:48am

Nightcrawler dives forward into a roll towards Marisol's tentacles, and bamf's midroll, the scent of brimstone heralding his exit on the far side of NM. His tail picks up a stick as he grins and waves.

Post by Siamko "Blind" Vasiliev on Jun 21, 2007, 10:49am

"Sad."

Blind appears behind Nightcrawler. Then in front of him. Then on both sides of him.

The Siamkos each raise a finger, twirling them in the air. Kurt should then see the world begin spinning about as quickly.


Re: New Mutants #130 - All Your Yesterdays
Post by Marisol Morales on Jun 21, 2007, 10:51am

While Blind's got Kurt distracted, I decide to add to whatever he's doing - I make a little whirlwind pop up around Kurt, put him in the spin cycle.


Re: New Mutants #130 - All Your Yesterdays
Post by Zephyr on Jun 21, 2007, 10:51am

Well, how would SHE know where he was going to be?!

With a rather displeased frown, Marisol turned transparent, making her nearly invisible. She created wings for herself and flew upwards sharply, trying to make sure Nightcrawler wouldn't get a hold of her blurry outlines. She decided to keep away for a moment to get a drop on him…


Re: New Mutants #130 - All Your Yesterdays
Post by Starheart on Jun 21, 2007, 10:54am

In response to the world spinning, Nightcrawler jumps up and spins in the air too, taking advantage of Zephyr's wind. Except he teleports when he reaches the apex of his jump, appearing behind one Blind, tail (and the stick held in it) outstretched as he spins, arcing around and through the Blind harmlessly, causing him to bamf away behind another one, repeating the harmless stick-through-illusion, well almost. He's appeared just a bit off target. Kurt teleports one more time, this time managing to thwap Blind on his shiny skull.


Re: New Mutants #130 - All Your Yesterdays
Post by Orchestra on Jun 21, 2007, 10:56am

I pick myself up of the ground and try to get myself in order. Not going to shed my slinky form yet, I can still make use of it.

I jump again, this time stretching part of me to be near Marisol, and the other, Zephyr. Kurt's going to appear near one of them.


Re: New Mutants #130 - All Your Yesterdays
Post by Siamko "Blind" Vasiliev on Jun 21, 2007, 10:57am

Falling to one knee, the Blinds vanish save for the one who was hit.

"…..good one."

He looks over his shoulder, then snaps his fingers, cutting off Nightcrawler's vision.


Re: New Mutants #130 - All Your Yesterdays
Post by Marisol Morales on Jun 21, 2007, 10:58am

Huh. I did not know Marisol could do that.

While she's holding back, I talk to Blind - or, whisper, really; know he can hear me. "Okay, Blind, get a lock on him - I can kind of sense the air get funny around wherever he's about to teleport to, but I'm betting you can sense it better than me. Just give me an idea of where he's about to be, and I think we can catch him off guard."

Post by watcher on Jun 21, 2007, 11:02am

"Don't take it personally guys. Kurt's been doing this a lot longer than the rest of us. That's what happens when you're as old as he is." Cannonball points surreptitiously to a spot about ten feet to the left of Blind.


Re: New Mutants #130 - All Your Yesterdays
Post by Starheart on Jun 21, 2007, 11:04am

Nightcrawler turned to get a look at his next target, and suddenly loses that ability. So, he begins to teleporting, spending only a few seconds in any one spot. Zephyr begins to recognize the signs of Nightcrawler's appearing, Blind also recognizing where he is the instant he teleports in.

First, Kurt teleports behind Zephyr, tapping his shoulder (and his head, with his blindness not exactly good for exact dexterity) with the tail-stick, before teleporting. Its right where Cannonball pointed, oddly.


Re: New Mutants #130 - All Your Yesterdays
Post by Orchestra on Jun 21, 2007, 11:06am

As I notice Kurt reappearing I swing my legs in that direction


Re: New Mutants #130 - All Your Yesterdays
Post by Marisol Morales on Jun 21, 2007, 11:07am

"Damn!" I swing behind me, just miss him. "Okay, getting a little tired of being own here." I close my eyes and feel through the air, trying to determine his next spot - if it works, I'll hit him with an air bullet.


Re: New Mutants #130 - All Your Yesterdays
Post by Siamko "Blind" Vasiliev on Jun 21, 2007, 11:08am

"Hm. Another distraction is in order. Hit him when he lands."

Blind begins following the distortions. After the next teleport, he'd return Nightcrawler's vision abruptly and amplify the ambient light. Should be disorienting, if not very painful.


Re: New Mutants #130 - All Your Yesterdays
Post by Zephyr on Jun 21, 2007, 11:10am

Marisol was prepared.


Re: New Mutants #130 - All Your Yesterdays
Post by Starheart on Jun 21, 2007, 11:11am

Orchestra swings, and the blind nightcrawler is a perfect target. And he teleports away, never knowing just how close Orchestra was.

Kurt re-appears, and then gives a suprised cry, covering his eyes with one hand as Blind amps up his sensitivity. Zephyr's aid bullet is right on target, and staggers him.

Pester will play Nightcrawler the most annoying, and possibly concentration breaking song that he can think of.

Marisol swooped downwards and tried to get a hold of Nightcrawler with more tentacles.

"Pitcher winds, throws…" I send a pretty powerful air bomb Kurt's way, should knock the fight out of him.

This is ridiculous. I cast off the slinky, commanding the shadow to return to Marisol, and charge at Nightcrawler.

Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jun 21, 2007, 11:15am

[Damien]

I watch him carefully. There's no such thing as pure randomness. Even when someone tries to think of a random number, they do not pick it randomly; they either follow an inclination, or a subconscious pattern. As such, even if Nightcrawler's trying to be random in his non-striking teleporting, he's subconsciously patterning his movements, and that means that they can be predicted once you've discerned the pattern.

Too bad I haven't.


Re: New Mutants #130 - All Your Yesterdays
Post by Starheart on Jun 21, 2007, 11:17am

Marisol manages to wrap a tentacle around Nightcrawler's arm. Nightcrawler has one thing to say "WHY would you know that song AT ALL?!". Then both Kurt and Marisol go flying through the air thanks to Zephyr's air bomb. They both Bamf away, reappearing in Orc's path, and he collides with Maricrawler.


Re: New Mutants #130 - All Your Yesterdays
Post by Zephyr on Jun 21, 2007, 11:19am

The shock of the teleportation almost knocked Marisol out. She let go of Nightcrawler and tumbled to the ground, only vaguely feeling the collisions. She let go of Nightcrawler and turned visible again. She would have thrown up if she could have.

She pulled herself to her knees and looked at Nightcrawler. She had tagged him, which meant they should have won.


Re: New Mutants #130 - All Your Yesterdays

"You are tagged."

Just to be certain, Blind scoops up a rock, makes it invisible and tosses it at Nightcrawler's head.


Re: New Mutants #130 - All Your Yesterdays
Post by Starheart on Jun 21, 2007, 11:21am

Maricrawlestra bamf away again, Marisol and Orchestra (Nightcrawler holding onto them with an arm each) reappearing on Pester with a cloud of brimstone, and then teleporting away with him as well. They re-appear just above Cannonball, and Nightcrawler lets them go.

"Did you BITE me?"


Re: New Mutants #130 - All Your Yesterdays
Post by Marisol Morales on Jun 21, 2007, 11:21am

Crap, didn't mean to tag her, too…don't think that hurt her, but still, not too crazy about it.

I fly over to where they both popped up, keeping my eyes open and senses trained.

Thwack! A rock (somehow invisible) smacks Nightcrawler in the back of the head.

"Who threw that?" He looks around at the New Mutants.


Re: New Mutants #130 - All Your Yesterdays
Post by Zephyr on Jun 21, 2007, 11:23am

Marisol turned herself sticky to prevent Nightcrawler letting go of her. The teleportation was extremely disorientating, but she didn't want to give up… Nightcrawler hadn't, by the looks of it.

Post by Siamko "Blind" Vasiliev on Jun 21, 2007, 11:25am

Marisol let Zephyr help her to her feet, a little disgruntled but essentially happy. They had won. She had won. She smiled at him slightly.

"Thank you. I'm fine, but it wasn't the most pleasant experience."

Nightcrawler starts to reply, when theres a small crashing sound from the mansion, and a hole in the wall appears, caused by…

Whoopi-bot!
[image]

She comes to a stop from her flight infront of the New Mutants. It seem's she's been a bit repaired. She says something about showing things, and stretches her arms out…and much like a console RPG battle start, the entire world wavers, and vanishes!

The team (minus Nightcrawler, who teleported into the mansion at the first boom sound), finds themselves in the woods, and its night time.

Before I can ask Pester to take the stick out of his ass, I'm stunned by the appearance of what, honestly, is the freakiest thing I have ever seen in my entire life: Whoopi Goldberg. As a pink alien robot. And I thought that movie she did with the dinosaur was trash.

The next thing I know, we're all…somewhere else. "Um…what the hell just happened? Anyone?"


Re: New Mutants #130 - All Your Yesterdays

That was annoying.

I need a moment to get my bearings, gather where we are. Wait, do I even still have my gear?

I knew that I should have looked into that robot. I need to assess my priorities… but that can wait. There must be some purpose to this. Now… do we wait for that to become apparent, or recon instead?

I hate it when this sort of thing happens.

"Well, the robot said something about 'showing things,' so I'm guessing we're here for a reason. Probably a Galactus stopping, Dr. Doom saving reason, or whatever the hell that robot was made for. Anyone wanna jump over the trees and get a lay of the land?"

Pester kicks the dirt, regretting the fact that he'll apparently have to start carrying his sword around everywhere if he doesn't want to be caught without it.

Zephyr see's what appears to be a campfire in one direction, with maybe a dozen people around it. One seems to be a little kid.

In another direction, he see's a swatch of destruction, and its approaching the fire. And in another direction, he see's yet another.

We're hearing a guy that left the team a long time ago.

The bullshit robot's rambling about paradoxes…. Hm, that sounds a lot like doxon. Paradoxon. Like wiener dogs that jump out of airplanes with parachutes, fully armed for war. Kickass.

There was something else too, but I can't remember. Whatever. Guess we're in the past.

"Whatever you do, don't step on any butterflies."

Pester follows after.

Zephyr, from his vantage on high, can see something huge just 'melt' up out of the ground, and hammer its fists down on one of the campers. Oddly, nobody seem's to react. When he gets low, he can't see much. Well, aside from the swath of destruction. There seem's be a huge figure at the edge of his sight, making the path of destruction.

Summary to current point:

The New Mutants were apparently moved somewhere, sometime by Whoopi Goldberg.
Zephyr has, by scouting, found a campsite with a dozen people, and two paths of destruction making their way to the fire. One is far closer to the camp than the other, which is still a distance away, but will make it there soon.

The bear moves quickly for something of its size. A giant paw comes from seemingly nowhere, slapping Zephyr out of the air, sending him 'flying' to the ground, landing right next to the New Mutants. On, actually. Poor Cannonball never saw him coming.

The bear turns back to going towards the campfire.

"What's really weird…is why haven't we heard from it again? I don't think it just decided to leave..we should all be on the look out"

The New Mutants hear the second source of destruction that Zephyr scouted coming from behind them. It seems they are in its path towards the campfire its partner is after.

The New Mutants reported that it was a robot. I wonder if that holds true.

"No, I doubt it, but I'd rather account for anything else, as well. Not much of a concern now. Siamko… if we have gone back, then apparently, this is a robot. Try and find out - try to shut off its sight. Sam. How did you beat this thing?"

The beast is clutching his lower abdomen, which seems to have split open slightly from Zephyr's attack. A glow of yellow energy can be seen leaking from him. Damien's shot hits, and has no apparent effect, except that the glow of yellow gets a bit stronger. Pester hits it in the face with a rock. It doesn't like it. Its sad.

Nothing from electricity.

All right. Marisol was fairly sure the thing couldn't actually hurt her, nor actually pull her off. But it could make it troublesome and loosen her enough to keep moving. She could work around it.

It took a little concentration, but she tried to turn her outer side incredibly slick, so the bear couldn't get a grip.

Blind shoots. It takes a few rounds before he gets a hit, but he does manage to hit in the eye. The eye now emits the yellow glow.

Mephista narrows her eyes, glaring at the New Mutants, her tail snapping back and forth.

Rowdy bounces off the wall and lands face down on the floor. He inspects himself for damage, which is much more difficult without access to his diagnostic programming. After deciding that he is okay, Rowdy rushes Mephista and tries to lock her in a bearhug.

«Why "he" instead of it? I don't know, I always felt Rowdy was "male", and in my mind, that's how he identifies. I'm not sure how he found his "gender identity", and frankly, I'm a little scared to think about it. I can only imagine "Goodbye Horses" playing in the background.»

Mephista glares at Zephyr (well, more like two feet to the left, and a few feet behind him. Go Blind!), and gestures again, a beam of light lancing from her hands as she intones something in a language that makes your ears want to bleed. The beam hits the wall, which turns into a dozen or so crabs.

Stretching backwards with it, gripping Sam's robotic hand at the 'shoulder', fingers digging into it making hand holds, extending her reach, she backhands Zephyr across the room with Sam's hand.

There isn't much that I can do from here, from what I can see. Demonic entity, a lower 'hell' lord, from what I can see. I doubt that there's anything that I can do to hurt it.

Doesn't mean I won't try. And it doesn't mean that I won't be able to distract it. Sorry, 'her'. Unfortunately, my unfamiliarity with her makes it difficult for me to try and co-ordinate the others.

No charge. The only thing that I would have that might have damaged her. I doubt it would, though. I deliver a kick, aimed at her throat, that no doubt will do little, if anything. That's not the point. I'm just trying to draw her attention.

Rowdy's punches seem to have SOME effect, as she shudders slightly for a second after every hit. Damien…bounces off.

Pester see's himself at first. After that, he can FAINTLY, faintly make out the Epic Twister Game. It seems to be going as it did.

Mephista growls, and barks out a few more painful sounds, and gestures at Rowdy, who begins to glow bright brown.

Then she whirls and starts to bear down on Damien, before noting Pester, and screaming "GET AWAY FROM THAT!"

And then she notes Zephyr is around her neck. Cursing, she throws Sam's arm up, and points, and it lands on Zephyr's back, and then slowly begins to mimic Thing, and crawl up his back, reaching to grip around his throat on its own.

This shouldn't have been any kind of choice for a shape-shifter. Most of her kept beating on Mephista - now adding sharp claws to her appendages - while a part extended itself away from the pain body, taking the shape of her torso. It headed straight to Zephyr.

"Zephyr? A-are you all right?"

Mephista screams as her OTHER eardrum is disabled. She grabs a shard out of the air as Pester throws, and returns fire at Pester, lodging it deep into his leg.

Marisol is scratching lightly, but the physical hits don't seem to be doing damage, just slowing her down.

It isn't out yet? I was kind of distracted, with daddy's little girl from hell over here.

I move over to the fire, take the belt with the flash and stun grenades off of my jacket, and try to put the fire out with it.

Sam's hand switches to punching Zephyr while he's down, though, it can't get a lot of leverage, and its barely something he'd feel. Though, it might give him a bruise or two.

"Hm. I can do better than that."

Blind attempts to amplify the pain on all of Mephista's various wounds at once.

Marisol rabidly started protecting Zephyr from… Sam's arm.

Elsewhere Blackheart looks at Amelia curiously. The thing calls the next move [[TIME]]. Blackheart starts to move, Amelia stays still. And the hotel starts shaking. Blackheart pitches forward onto his face.

Mephista screams in pain, and then in anger.

"You damn kids. You will live to regret preventing me from completing my work here."

Mephista bursts into flame, and seems to burn away, leaving nothing but a scorch mark after a few seconds.

Whoopi to the rescue! Numinus-bot re-activates, and everything shimmers again.

"This has been corrected. Things will progress as they did."

The New Mutants find themselves right where they started, Sam's arm no longer animated in Marisol's grip.

Rowdy is no longer wood panelled (like a station wagon!), nor on fire (like a station wagon!!). Cyclops is coming running up, Forge and Beast beside him, Nightcrawler bamfing in after a few seconds.

Marisol, now wholly at Zephyr's side, grabbed hold of the arm and absorbed it into herself for safekeeping.

Pester sits down and clutches his heavily bleeding leg, not trying to pull it out.

"Halp."

"Master Pester!" Rowdy rushes over to Pester, putting pressure on the wound. "Should I dislodge the glass, Master?"

"No thanks. Pretty sure that'd kill me."

Pester continues bleeding liberally on the lawn.

Wizard of Oz. A classic. More so than Scooby Doo.

I tear my sleeve off, pull the shard out of Joshua's leg and then wrap the sleeve tightly around his leg to maintain pressure on it.

Rowdy scoops Pester up into his arms. "We must get Master Pester into the medical lab! His flesh shell has sustained serious damage!"

Pester reflexively starts screaming before passing out, like that one soldier in Black Hawk Down. He goes limp and unconscious.

If screaming and then falling unconscious from pain is what you call managing…

Beast and Forge look at each other worried.

"We didn't think it could manage time travel. But the design i-" Beast stops midsentance, as the Robot-Whoopi just…vanishes.

"Right. Lets get Joshua to the medbay, and quickly."

Didn't you get the memo? I always win. It's what I do. Now… I need some air. Actual air. Not time-travel air. I'll check on Joshua later. You coming? I turn and walk out of the room. I'd try to look into it myself, but something tells me I wouldn't have permission.

Aaand… out the window in the corridor, and with another few jumps, out of the grounds.
