Mini Mission 1: I Scream, You Scream…
Post by Last Hero on Jan 15, 2007, 3:05pm

It's a quick flight - and a little uncomfortable, really; Zephyr keep dropping Dillan in and out of the current, no telling if it's on purpose or not - and the group finds themselves standing outside the ice cream parlor soon enough. Trent's staying close to Marisol, but he seems pretty distracted by the look of the place; he's staring at the buildings, watching the cars roll by, gazing at a jet overhead like this is a whole new world.

"You're not too uncomfortable in a big city, are you?" asked Marisol gently.

"No, it's just…" A man with a briefcase walks by, hurrying off to a meeting somewhere, speaking into his cellphone. "That…that thing he was talking into, what was that?"

Marisol patiently explained: "A cellphone. It's… a small phone without a wire. Do you really not have those in Peaksville?"

Post by Last Hero on Jan 15, 2007, 3:44pm

"Oh, well, no." He laughs a little walking towards the parlor. "We're really behind the times."

Of course, Zephyr couldn't let that one go. "Who do you live with? Fred Flinstone?"

"Yeah, but the bigger question is, is it really necessary that absolutely anyone must speak to you at the drop of a hat? Can't they wait long enough to find a landline?"

Wreck looks off.

"…..besides, eventually terrorists will use them to rewrite our brains and we'll all become raging zombies."

"Don't talk like that, he might actually believe you!"
She turned towards Trent with an apologetic look.
"They're just kidding around. Also, if people don't want to be disturbed, they can always turn their cellphones off…"

It starts as a distant rumble, so faint the only hint of it are gentle ripples in a puddle. It grows stronger with each pulse. Louder. Pounding. Boom, boom, BOOM.

Then they see him. Rounding a corner, earning gawks and squeals as he walks along, tearing the pavement beneath him: The BLOB.

"Um…" Trent's eyes are stretched wide, and Zephyr's are about the same. "Who is that?"

"My guess? A Godzilla movie escapee."

Blob starts to head into the parlor - or squeeze in, whatever - when he spots the New Mutants. Specifically Marisol. "Aw, not you again."


Re: Mini Mission 1: I Scream, You Scream…

Zephyr looks between Marisol and their newfound friend. "Marisol, you know this disaster area?"

Marisol bit her lip nervously.

"Oh… I remember him, vaguely," she said, "Before you joined us, we got into a little fight with him and some other people. I, uh, beat him."

"Whatever we do, we should probably do it quickly. We're in the mid-morning rush, and this guy looks like he doesn't take prisoners."

Pester darts into the store and stands on line.

"I agree with Wreck! We really don't want any trouble. So if you're not gonna start anything or hurt anyone or do anything bad, we'd just leave you in peace."

She looked at the Blob in a very puppy-like manner.


Re: Mini Mission 1: I Scream, You Scream…
Post by Last Hero on Jan 15, 2007, 4:08pm

The Blob rubs his chin. And boy, is there a lot of chin to rub. "Ah, geez, well since you asked me so nicely, let me think about it." He takes a second to think. And another second. And another. "Eh, well…nah!"

Blob leaps, going for the world's biggest belly flop. Everyone makes it out of the way in time…except for Wreck, who's usual luck when it comes to these sort of things hold out. He gets smashed flat into the pavement, already reforming when Blob starts to stand.


Re: Mini Mission 1: I Scream, You Scream…
Post by Marisol "Solidity" Morales on Jan 15, 2007, 4:14pm

People were grasping what was happening. They were starting to run around, some of them in a panic. Thankfully, everybody was intelligent enough to understand what direction to run to…

Marisol's expression hardened a bit.
"Stand back, Trent," she told him gently, "Just go wait further off, will you?"

One of her arms morphed into a huge battle-hammer. If she recalled, things like that had no effect the last time she had fought the Blob, but she was willing to give it a try. She felt a bit self-conscious repeating her trick when everybody's attention was on her, especially Trent's. And he'd probably expect it now anyway…
She jogged behind the Blob and delivered a hit to the back of his knees… for all it's worth, at least.

Post by Wreck on Jan 15, 2007, 4:15pm

"…..that…..was……not…..pleasant….."

From his position in the Blob shaped crater on the ground, Wreck points a finger and sends a small jolt of entropy in his direction.


Re: Mini Mission 1: I Scream, You Scream…
Post by Pester/Freaktada on Jan 15, 2007, 4:17pm

With all the commotion, patrons were streaming out of the store by the truckload. Pester smirks smugly as the long line in front of him quickly dissipates in terror. Luckily, the poor souls working here didn't run, as they had died the second they stepped behind the counter.


Re: Mini Mission 1: I Scream, You Scream…
Post by Last Hero on Jan 15, 2007, 4:23pm

Despite all evidence to the contrary, Blob's not a total idiot, and his last encounter with Marisol left a deep impression in his mind. This time, he's ready for her, and he blocks Marisol's attack, grabbing hold of her quick and flinging her away.

"Hands off!" Zephyr's up next, coming at Blob with a flying kick from above…apparently, he hasn't done his homework on the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. He hit Blob straight in the chest and goes flying away.

Wreck's attack, however, comes off a little better. It his Blob in the stomach, and which it doesn't do any significant damage, it's enough to give him a rather nasty burn. "What the-"

"Hey, fat-ass. How about you leave my friends and bugger off and I won't have to screw you up," I suggested calmly, leaning against the store.


Re: Mini Mission 1: I Scream, You Scream…
Post by Last Hero on Jan 15, 2007, 4:31pm

"Fat ass? Man, you know how many times I get called that in a single day?" Blob picks up a car and hurls it Sephula's way. "It's damn tiring! Knock it off!"


Re: Mini Mission 1: I Scream, You Scream…
Post by Marisol "Solidity" Morales on Jan 15, 2007, 4:32pm

Marisol always landed on her feet. She did have a huge amount of grace and perfect balance, but it also had a lot to do with the fact that her feet always were where they needed to be. She started moving back the second she touched ground. The problem was, she still had absolutely no idea about what to do…

For the moment, she decided to try turning her hands into two Spinning Sharp Things of Doom and approached the Blob again. She didn't expect much of a result, but she was planning to grab a hold of him if he touched her again.


Re: Mini Mission 1: I Scream, You Scream…
Post by Wreck on Jan 15, 2007, 4:32pm

Wreck sits up, firing another tiny blast at Blob.

"Hey, you do realize I'm probably capable of doing this at a way bigger level. Like, enough to explode you. I've done it before."

He glances over at the flying car, attempting to disintegrate it in midair.


Re: Mini Mission 1: I Scream, You Scream…
Post by Kelly / Meisha ~ "Star / Muse" on Jan 15, 2007, 4:34pm

Sephula

I attempted to leap out of the way with my boosted agility and speed.

"No wonder, brain donor! Look at you! And the good money's on you trying to eat us next!"

Post by Pester/Freaktada on Jan 15, 2007, 4:36pm

Pester steps up to the counter once the last customer has run in terror. Staring into the cold, lifeless eyes of the cashier, he realizes he's forgotten something. He projects his voice into his teammates' ears (Not the kid, as that would probably terrify him):

"What do you people want to eat?"


Re: Mini Mission 1: I Scream, You Scream…
Post by Last Hero on Jan 15, 2007, 4:38pm

Blob turns to Wreck as he disintegrates the car, really getting in the mood now. "Yeah, I'm shaking, smiley. Wonder if you can 'explode' me if I break off those arms of yours and throw 'em cross-country, huh?"

He started to walk Wreck's way when Marisol attacked, hitting him with her blades, and not getting a cut…but he does grab a hold of her, and she latches on, just as planned. "Aw, get off!" He tries to shake her, but it's not happening. "And they call me disgusting!"


Re: Mini Mission 1: I Scream, You Scream…
Post by Kelly / Meisha ~ "Star / Muse" on Jan 15, 2007, 4:40pm

Sephula

"Alright Yokozuna, this has gone on long enough," I said, almost laughing. I tried to hold back some of the red blood cells in his head.


Re: Mini Mission 1: I Scream, You Scream…
Post by Protoman on Jan 15, 2007, 4:41pm

"Get me a cheeseburger and fries."

I choose this moment to act. I can't heat him up as much as I normally would because Marisol is attached, so I focus on his head. Heat it up enough and he shoudl pass out.


Re: Mini Mission 1: I Scream, You Scream…
Post by Marisol "Solidity" Morales on Jan 15, 2007, 4:42pm

Marisol held tight, slithered around his arm and began moving upwards along it. She supposed she had moments until he'd use his gravity field on her, but she had thought of that.
Once she reached his neck, she spoke:
"Why would I be disgusting?" It felt ridiculous to her, but she needed him to open his mouth to reply. She would then try to get inside his mouth and move onwards from there. She hoped she'd not be susceptible to the gravity field there…

Post by Last Hero on Jan 15, 2007, 4:46pm

"Gee, I dunno, because you try to beat me by picking my nose, maybe?"

Marisol's in position, Sephula's got him unsteady, but, unfortunately, the New Mutant's are attacked by their worst enemy: Poor timing. Lex's heat field burns Marisol before she can get close to Blob's face, loosening her up enough so that Blob can fling her away. Zephyr catches her for all the good it does; it's not like he can do much else but play crowd control with a freak like this. "You alright?"


Re: Mini Mission 1: I Scream, You Scream…
Post by Kelly / Meisha ~ "Star / Muse" on Jan 15, 2007, 4:48pm

Sephula

Stupid as I know it is, I can't help myself. Amping myself up as far as I can go, I charge Blob and throw a punch at him as hard as I can.

"Nobody hurts my friends, not even you, Texas!"


Re: Mini Mission 1: I Scream, You Scream…

«Sorry, it's in quotes now.»


Re: Mini Mission 1: I Scream, You Scream…
Post by Last Hero on Jan 15, 2007, 4:52pm

Not the smartest move on Sephula's part.

The punch just sort of bounces off Blob's skin. Doesn't even make him budge. All it does is bring Sephula close enough to get smacked in the head with one of Blob's ham-sized fists, knocking him yards and yards away. He was amped up, so it doesn't do serious damage, but he'll be walking funny for a while.


Re: Mini Mission 1: I Scream, You Scream…
Post by Wreck on Jan 15, 2007, 4:52pm

"By all means, tear my arms off. I'll beat you over the head with them."

Before Blob can stop to think about how that would actually work, Wreck stands and leaps at him, going for his usual "grapple and entropy" attack.


Re: Mini Mission 1: I Scream, You Scream…
Post by Marisol "Solidity" Morales on Jan 15, 2007, 4:53pm

Marisol carefully reworked herself back into human shape before replying.
"It just hurt, I'm not in any danger. Thanks."

She felt a bit woozy from the heat, and the familiar, uncomfortable warm feeling was coursing through her. She gently released herself from Zephyr's grip. She made sure she was firmly attached to the ground, and extended her arms towards the Blob. Then she simply tried to cover his eyes with them and hold on. She felt a bit uncertain, because she might have been getting in the way of attacks by two team-mates… but she couldn't do just nothing.

Post by Protoman on Jan 15, 2007, 4:57pm

"Damn it, sorry Marisol!" I yell. I guess I can't to much at the moment, I walk into the store to join Pester.

"You get my burger yet?"


Re: Mini Mission 1: I Scream, You Scream…
Post by Last Hero on Jan 15, 2007, 4:57pm

"Gotcha!" Blob smacks Wreck out of the air, moving incredibly fast for an All-You-Can-Eat buffet on legs. "Showed you, huh? People always think I'm slow and dumb, right up until I drop the-"

Marisol's trick blinds him and starts flailing around wildly, spilling out into the streets while he tries to pry her off. "Little brats! When I get this off, I swear, I'll show you what the Blob's all about!"

"Y'know… This is why I don't eat at McSuckithard anymore, they wait as long as possible to actually feed people."

Pester catches a glance at something strange in the back.

"The manager over there, see him? The blue guy? Does he look familiar?"

“Fine. Let’s see how well you do when you can barely think.”

I try and screw up his neuron signal reception.

"Well yeah, how many blue guys have you seen in your life?"

I look at the person behind the counter and point outside.

The blue manager walks up to the counter. It turns out he's around 7 feet tall, and extremely skinny. He's swimming in his small T-shirt. With black eyes, he looks at Lex and with a heavy lisp he inquires:

"What theemth to be the problem thir?"


Re: Mini Mission 1: I Scream, You Scream…
Post by Marisol "Solidity" Morales on Jan 15, 2007, 5:18pm

Marisol began moving forwards, towards Blob. Very soon, she couldn't really be identified as Marisol anymore. She enlarged herself as much as she possible could, towering over her opponent, but also kept herself away from any specific shape. Instead, she crushed down on him as a sort of semi-hard wave.

I look up at the manager.

"The problem is if I don't get my food I'll be burning your little establishment to the ground. Believe me, I can do it."


Re: Mini Mission 1: I Scream, You Scream…
Post by Pester/Freaktada on Jan 15, 2007, 5:26pm

Looking more bored than intimidated, the manager nods slowly.

"Yeth thir, I'm sure you could if you chothe to. However, that will not exthpediate the arrival of your meal. The betht courthe of action you could take would be to pachently wait for your meal, and thtop dithturbing my loyal workerth."

He gestures to a middle aged man lowering fries into a vat of boiling oil. He looks like he could flip out at any moment.

Pester slowly starts inching away from Lex. At this point, he's wondering if fighting the Blob would have been safer.


Re: Mini Mission 1: I Scream, You Scream…
Post by Last Hero on Jan 15, 2007, 5:27pm

Sephula and Marisol's combination works well enough; Blob's so disoriented that his gravity doesn't work, and he falls down. Hard. On his face. He's groaning a little bit down there, but he isn't getting back. "Damn…kids…"

"Not gonna happen! I'm not in a patient mood!" I snap my fingers and the napkin holder in front of my bursts into flames, the flames don't spread but the napkin holder is toast.

"Get me my burger."

Post by Marisol "Solidity" Morales on Jan 15, 2007, 5:32pm

"Your friends and me…" muttered Marisol once she had gathered herself up again. Back to normal, she first made sure that the Blob really WAS out. Then she looked around for Trent. She hoped he wasn't scared… her transformations could definitely scare a child his age…

"Thir, I'll have to athk you to calm yourthelf before I'm forthed to requetht that you leave. If you refuthe to cooperate, then I'll have to hold you rethponthible for your actionth."

The napkin dispensor suddenly rises up a few inches into the air, then fades from existence. You can almost see the vaguest hint of a smirk forming on the BMG.

Meanwhile, it appears the lackeys in the back are almost done. They're currently putting all the food into little bags, completely oblivious to the chaos occuring both inside and outside their restaurant.

[Actually, now it makes sense. It was just some weird wording. I get what Marisol means now.]

Trent spots Wreck and walks over to him, placing a finger on his chest. "No pain."

And, just like that, Wreck's pain goes away, replaced with a rather pleasant numbing feeling. It doesn't actually heal him, but it does make him feel much better.

Marisol dragged herself towards Zephyr.

The BMG's eyes narrow into slits. Lex can feel something happening in his body, he doesn't quite know what it is, but it's something. Pester notices tiny cracks forming in the surface of the counter, and realizes the BMG's 8 fingered hands are slowly crushing it to dust.

"Wendy'th… You would like that wouldn't you… Thothe dithguthting thquare hamburgerth, their low fat yogurth, their pathetic ekthcutheth (excuses) for low carb thaladth! ITH THAT WHAT YOU WANT BOY!?! Be Gone!"

He raises his eyebrows, and Lex finds himself flying at incredible speed, out a window previously broken by Blob.

One particularly homicidal looking employee hands Pester a large bag of food, with a tray of drinks and some ice cream. Surprisingly, it's all in the correct proportions and nicely labelled. As Pester goes for the bag, BMG casually reaches into the bag, pulls out one burger and fries, and sends it sailing into Lex's torso.

Looking to the rest of the New Mutants, BMG hands Pester the bag and accepts the Xavier institute credit card, given out only on missions, or potentially holidays if the Professor is feeling especially generous.

Suddenly quite calm:

"Thank you for your patronage. We look forward to therving you in the futhure."

«You never know when you'll run into a super powerful mutant who's content with a low paying, blue collar job. Lex kept on antagonizing the poor guy!»

"What are you DOING, Lex?" Marisol stared at him with a relatively panicked expression.

"He just threw me through a window!" I yell at Marisol as I pull the burger out of my pocket and unwrap it. "I'm pissed!"

I start to eat the burger, it is pretty good.

Zephyr wasn't really mad, just a little miffed. This was the first time he'd ever had to really share attention when it came to Marisol. Weird.

He's about to tell her so, when the burger joint goes up in flames for no apparent reason, with the sound of maniacal laughter reigning over it all.

Trent takes shelter behind Marisol, but he's a little more confused than afraid. "Are things always this…weird?"

Zephyr shakes his head. "Actually, relatively speaking, this is pretty normal. We should go before the Circus of Crime attacks or something even more random happens."

"Maybe you should try to put out the fire, Zephyr?" asked Marisol uncertainly, "I don't see Pester anywhere…"

"Let the wankers burn," I said, turning away from the flames.

"Oh. Yeah. Right." Zephyr starts smothering the flames, displacing the air around it and slowly bringing under control. "And yeah, where is Pester?"

Marisol extended a fist to the back of Sephula's head. It wasn't nearly as painful as it could have been, it was meant more as a disciplinary action.
"How can you even say that?"

I continue to eat my burger as I watch things develop.

As the rest of the team leaves the restaurant, Pester is in the back of the group. He makes the case that Lex is just upset, and politely requests that the Blue Manager Guy doesn't kill him instantly. The BMG complies. Suddenly, the middle aged bald guy leaps over the counter and begins biting into Pester's calf muscle. After a few minutes of epic battle, he escapes and catches up with the rest of the group. Nobody notices him until he's all caught up.

"No problem, I'm right here!"

“Oww! Bloody hell, what’s wrong with you woman? I’m not a bloody punching bag! It’s easy to say. Let – them – burn,” I said, emphasising every syllable in the last sentence.

Marisol grabbed the burger from Lex's hand and hid it behind her back.
"Turn off the fire," she commanded.

I slowly turn towards Marisol. "Give me my burger."

I scowl at Marisol, but reluctantly turn towards the building and disapate the heat in the flames. They go out and I turn back to her. "My burger?" I extend my hand.

And with that, all is well. Mortimer Khan, Manager of McDonalds, has forgiven the New Mutants for all inequities.

Marisol placed it in his hand with a hard look and glanced towards Trent. This was making them look really bad in front of him…

Trent's still looking calm; in fact, he has a rather pleasant smile on his face, finding this all funny. One problem, though.

"Uh, hey…" He walks towards Lex, close but not too close. "Did you get me anything?"

Shit…forgot about the kid. I glance at the half eaten burger in my hand and to the fries all over the ground. I reluctantly hand the half burger I have left to the kid.


Re: Mini Mission 1: I Scream, You Scream…
Post by Marisol "Solidity" Morales on Jan 15, 2007, 6:18pm

Marisol just frowned and turned her back on Sephula.
"We can just find another place to eat around here. It's no problem!"

"Yeah, there's a Burger King right over there." These fast food places do tend to be close together, and Zephyr points to the BK…just as police sirens start to blare. "Yeah, it's time to go."


Re: Mini Mission 1: I Scream, You Scream…

I look rather upset as I realize we're going somewhere else…I just gave the kid my burger.

Trent just sort of looks at Lex's half eaten burger, forcing a smile. "Uh, thanks, but no thanks."

YAY!

I pull my hand back and continue to eat my burger.
