New Mutants #134 - The Hunters
Post by Last Hero on Aug 28, 2007, 8:59am

«Just a warning, this mission I have no quite figured out all the details yet, so if there is a pause in the flow, don't be shocked. But, usually I can do that kind of thing on the fly, so don't worry too much about that»

«Check in and socialize…when we get a few here, we can start things off.»

It has been 24 hours since President Kelly's decree about Mutant Registration. The tension around the mansion has been stiffling. Hour after hour, more mutants have come looking for sanctuary, but they have been turned away.

The teachers have been locked in conference pretty much day and night trying to make decisions on what happens next. Some of the students in the mansion have gathered in the Wreck Room.

Zephyr stepped back into the Wreck room, hands in his pockets.

"Yeah, they're still there…"

Somehow, it seemed pointless to go check the conference room every five minutes. But at least it gave him something to do…

Not saying I'd abandon you all, but…well…my powers are like a total get out of jail free card. I could get us out of jail free right now, but everyone's always like 'No way Dillon, you can't alter history, let the White House blow up and shit, let MLK get shot."

Sheesh. This was a hard argument to take sides in. On one hand, Zephyr was still more than a little resentful of Blind, but he wasn't exactly overly fond of Dillan either, especially when he was acting like this.

I give Pester a look and mouth the word 'Rogue.'

Then the shiver runs through my body.

Since he so rapidly changed the subject, Pester sends a message into his head:

"Do you think you have some kind of secret leverage over me? If you know, it's a certainty everybody in the building knows."

"Anyway, what makes you think there's something wrong?"


Re: New Mutants #128 - The Hunters
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Aug 28, 2007, 10:55am

"Something just moved past me, whispered, and left me with a chill. We've either got a ghost or something else."

I wish I could send him a message back…can I?

"No, I don't." I say, looking at him. "Just wanted to congratulate for having the best/worst taste in women."

"You were there when we met Mephisto. We know people who have come back from being dead. Dead-dead. There's no reason to not believe in ghosts. Hell, electro-Almond could count as a ghost of sorts."

Pester feels someone brush against him. He distinctly hears a voice mutter, "Can't we just blow the whole place up…would save us a lot of time and effort. I'm sure someone has a contract on at least one of these idiots, so we could make some extra cash on the side. What do you say?"

"Ah!"

After everyone stops staring at Pester with wide eyed horror, they hear his voice but don't see his mouth moving.

"I felt and heard something. Invisible people are planning on blowing this place up, and from the sound of things they're being paid for it. They're not ghosts… See if you can find them, Zephyr."


Re: New Mutants #128 - The Hunters

"Annoying."

Blind tries turning up Emplate's vision so the light of the room burns out his retinas.

Zephyr bit back a gasp. It hurt all the more since it was the same leg he'd gotten shot in a few weeks ago. He really should have known better…

He couldn't quite think of a come-back for Emplate. He also didn't recall if Colossus needed to breathe, so he just found out by leaning closer to Emplate and sucking away the air in his lungs. (Hopefully, he had some.)

"Not like the rest of us can do much. Can you put your self-esteem problems out of the way before we fucking die and all?"

She tries wrapping the string around Emplate's leg and tripping him.

"And you helped me when I got hit, that counts for something."

«Retina ;) »

Empath releases another pained scream and drops to his hands and knees. This distraction releases the telepathic hold on Dil's powers.

Zeph does pull the air from Emplate's lungs. Colossus doesn't really need to breathe…Emplate on the other hand does. He starts to gasp, and Darya does pull him down this time.

"Suck on this…" muttered Zephyr as he grabbed a chair and struck it down across Emplate's head.

Empath says, "You can't possibly understand!!"

Kane says, "No one's going to hurt you. St. Croix…"

Empath hisses, "Not SHIELD, you moron!! If I don't have sustanence…I'll end up back THERE….and I have been out far too long this time…"

«Just a little programming note, in the comics, the reason Emplate needed to suck the marrow was because when he feel below a certain threshold, he was unable to stay in our reality, and instead was in a pocket dimension where he was constantly tortured»

DP's head rocks back and he is reaching for his gun.

Kane screws his hand back on, and says, "Mission completed. Bringing him out now…He managed to knock out Wilson though."

Deadpool says, "What do you…."

Kane hits him full bore with a plasma blast, knocking Deadpool into dreamland.
