Ripping off Amy, as always.

New Mutants…IN SPACE!!! Featuring the Imperial Guard Auxilliary #4 - All Of Our Tomorrows (Part One)

There is a potential for guest stars officially, now. However, it's a strange sort of guest star.

Three of my players have limited opportunities to ask people to guest star. They might not actually use these opportunities. But they still have them. So, if you get a PM asking about it, it is probably legit.

If you're one of my players and have no idea what I'm talking about, then just go with the flow. For now.

And, sadly, Roxanne was on the bubble. I picked four people to ask first, for reasons that will become obvious. Two have confirmed. Roxanne is second in line to one of the other two positions, if the initial person rejects it.

However, I was REALLY torn between who to offer that position to, and will be just as happy with Roxanne as the initial option. But don't worry. Roxanne will have time to shine regardless.

«First after all… »

Prologue I…

Sometimes, people just have to get over themselves.

I learned that lesson a long time ago.

Life is hard. It's nothing but a string of problems and worries, personal and impersonal, big and small. It can be filled with strife, violence and depression, and the best you can hope for in it is surviving it. Life is very hard indeed. But that doesn't mean you can't be happy or successful… You simply have to try hard enough, and know what you're doing. The biggest thing that can get in your way is you yourself. Your fear, your hatred, your pride… You have to master your emotions to master life.

That's what I'm trying to do right now. Hold my emotions in check.

The shuttle is just a few minutes away from the Starjammer. We're back in normal space, and approaching the bigger ship by thrusters only. Lisa looks more than a little nervous, but I think she's just feeling sick. She's very strong, but never has gotten used to space travel. We're about to start the docking procedure, and I admit, I'm having doubts. Was it the right decision to agree to coming here? Should I have abandoned my duties for this, even for a while? The people I'll meet again, and work with… I admit, I don't like the idea at all. Any respect or liking I ever had for them is gone now - they squandered it. At best, they're all traitors. But even if I hate them… there's too much at stake here to ignore this matter.

I have to get over myself, don't I?

I've gotten used to very few luxuries by this point. That's not exactly surprising, considering the state the Earth is in. Luxuries are quite hard to come by these days, whether they're food, clothes, living space or other such things. They're just not very available. Hell, we have enough problems with ordinary wares too often, to the point where such things really don't matter. Even so, considering my position, I would be able to procure myself mostly anything I could want: jewelry, cocaine, maybe a Rolls Royce… I don't bother. It's not even a matter of the impression I give, it would simply be unfair.

Earth has had some bad times. I say "has had" because the worst has passed by now, and things are looking up again after a long time of nothing but death and sorrow. Life is hard, eh…

The Skrull are mostly to blame for it. They initiated their Maximum Security program, designating Earth as a prison planet. Waves upon waves of intergalactic criminals struck us before we knew it, creating widespread chaos and disruption. Everyone who could fight was so busy battling them that what came next took us by surprise. Biological attacks devasted much of the population, and killed most of Earth's heroes. For the most part, society collapsed. That's when the Skrull moved in at last, occupying everything still inhabitable and continuing to fill the planet with the scum of the universe. Anyone who could possibly have helped us wasn't willing, or "able to". We were left to fend for ourselves…

And you know what the most beautiful thing is? We made it. Humanity didn't let itself be destroyed after all. There were widespread rebellions, in which I played no small part. We still had a number of powerful superhumans on our side, but in the end, it was the common man that picked up arms and fought back our freedom. And slowly but surely, it all worked out. In the end, our opposition wasn't simply beaten back… it was eradicated. The Skrulls saw Terra as an absolute waste. In their desperation, they decided to cut their losses and destroy the whole planet. It was an act of spite, nothing more. I managed to prevent it from happening, but like every other part of the war, it required a sacrifice…

Of course, things didn't automatically become better after the end of the war. The price of victory had been heavy. Most of the planet's population had ended up dead for one reason or another, and the planet itself wasn't in a very good state either. Large areas had become completely uninhabitable, and the ecosystem might very well have been permanently ruined. We suffered famine and disease. For a while, it seemed like we would be finished after all… but that wasn't the case. Through strong leadership, things got better. Stability returned to the world, and we now live in a society that offers its citizens an honest chance at survival. We've built up a global network that provides relief and security where ever needed. The economy is on the rise. We might still go hungry on occasion, but the population is growing again, after such a long time.

We prevailed. We picked ourselves up from the lowest point we had ever been in… It was never easy, but we gave it our best, and I'm more than proud to call myself Terran.

We're docking with the Starjammer now… A silent humming is audible, followed by a click that tells me we've arrived. I tell myself I shouldn't, but I can't help but feel a little anxious. It's surprising - I honestly thought I'd have to worry about my temper instead. It's been a very long time since I last saw them on peaceful terms. I want to say I've missed them, but the rare meetings we've had have showcased how many horrible mistakes they've all made. It pains me to even look at them. Should I really do this - should I really join forces with them again?

Yes. Yes, I should.

Over the last years, my every action has been meant to serve Earth and its interests. Who would expect anything less of its Empress, Nicolette I? I care about my planet, and I care about my people. I lead them to victory in the rebellion and directed them back to welfare after it. I love them, and they love me. I know they'll manage without me for a short while, but I still feel guilty about it. I know I'm doing this for Earth's sake as well, but there's quite simply more at stake than one planet. The fate of the universe hangs in the balance… My presence here is for the best. I have to do what I can.

"Let's go," I tell Lisa curtly, and we rise to move over to the Starjammer. The shuttle will return to Earth, where it is needed more.

Indeed, luxuries like it are hard to come by… And sometimes, choice is a luxury one just doesn't have…

Prologue II

I stand on the bridge, tense. A little bit more so than I usually am these days. All things considered, that speaks volumes. I gaze off into the emptiness of space. This never gets old. I loved to do it twenty years ago, back when the old Shi'ar Guard Auxiliary program was still running and I love to do it now. The vast, seemingly endless reaches of space can either calm me down immensely or crush my spirit entirely. Today it calms me. It does most days. Now. Back then it could be fifty/fifty. But these days there are so many other external forces pressing down on my spirit that the crushing loneliness of space simply isn't enough to do it any more.

I relax. A little.

Raza informs me of the first arrival. The shuttle is near. Nicolette and whatever attendants she has brought with her. Empress of Earth. She does well for herself. Beat back the Skrulls, named Empress for her actions during the rebellion… not bad at all. Granted, Earth is more of a dirt ball now than the older races thought it was in the good old days. But hey. Empress. Yay for her.

I can't believe I haven't killed her yet. In retrospect, I suppose, it is a good thing that I didn't. I mean, I need her now. But I didn't know that I would. I could have done it with a clear conscience before this entire mess landed in my lap. Well… not just my lap. Damn it all to hell.

Ch'od informs me that they've docked. Yay.

There are absolutely no other circumstances in which I would have done this. Called upon her. Called upon any of them, really. They can all burn. Each and every one of them. Sadly, this isn't a matter of just their lives. Not just my life. Not just the lives of my crew. No. There's so much more at stake. I would have thought something like this to be unfathomable before it happened. But somebody did fathom it. And made it a reality. A shiver runs down my spine. Thinking about the force that opposes us tends to do that to me. I've been through a lot. Been through rough situations. Pulled a win out of seemingly unwinnable situations. But nothing has ever sparked fear in me like this has.

Nothing.

Fear. Overwhelming fear. No other force could make me offer any sort of olive branch to Nicolette and the others. Not even for a moment. Nothing. But what we're up against… it haunts my nightmares. I can't even get away from it in my good dreams. It's always there - my every moment, sleeping and awake. I don't allow my fear to rule my actions. I've fought. We've put up a resistance - the absolute best we could. We've hopped back and forth between different groups trying to solve the issue in different ways and assisted however we could. Say what you will about the Starjammers, but we were there to help when it counted. Except that it wasn't enough. Never enough.

Not even close.

The Nicolette and the others… from what reports that I've received, they haven't been any more successful than we have. I want to feel smug about that. I can't. I don't like them - I hate them. But it's like I said - I fear this threat so much that I've called them all together, for the first time in twenty years if memory serves. If they had been able to make any progress I would be elated. I might not have had to see them, for one thing. For another the thing that's been hanging over my head for so damned long wouldn't be as much of an issue.

I want to be angry at their lack of progress, but it would be utterly hypocritical based on my own failure.

I have Sikorsky run a scan on Nicolette's ship. I want to know how many people she's brought with her and, more importantly, how many powers she brought with her. Earth is low on powers these days, but if anyone would have access to them it's Nicolette. Put simply, I don't trust her not to try something funny. I make it exceedingly clear to Lisa in no uncertain terms - stay by the transporter controls. Keep a lock on everyone that isn't a Starjammer. Be ready to space anyone I choose at any time.

I may be making strange bedfellows here, but I have no intention of paying for it. Me or my crew. The past has shown me Nicolette holds them and their lives in the lowest regards. Nicolette… Fear has forced me to set my disdain for her aside. But it has not eradicated it. Nothing could. She committed a grave crime against me. It will not go unpunished. The punishment is simply… put off.

God… I can feel it. Crushing weight. It isn't even here. It isn't present. There isn't even the smallest sign of it. That's why I chose this area. No targets. Empty space. A safe place for a gathering. A relatively safe place anyway. But I can feel it anyway. Crushing weight. It seems to find me no matter where I go in the universe. On my mind. On my soul. I even feel heavier, though I may just be feeling things as a result of the aforementioned crush being put on my mind and soul. I've used the Starjammers to thrill seek from time to time. To get high on life. But getting rid of this weight… there is no way it will not be the penultimate high. I may retire.

No I wont. I'm hooked on the life. Nice to dream though.

I almost laugh. Almost. It's just that it occurs to me that the weapon we had destroyed on our very first mission out together… it could quite possibly be very useful now. It would be funnier if I was watching a cartoon of the situation. As things are, I'm the one lamenting the loss of the weapon and isn't too funny that I was part of the destruction of a possibly useful resource. If we survive though, I may chuckle over it for a few minutes.

"Open up Ch'od. We have guests. Don't want to keep them waiting."

Prologue III

I send a powerful blast of Cosmic Energy behind me. It won't hurt them, but it should slow them down a bit. I'm flying at my top speed, or I was until I let out that much energy. They took him, how did they take him? They're too powerful…they need to be stopped. You will not fall to them Lord Galactus, I'm coming.

It's been twenty years since I've seen any of them, well that's not true. Nicolette approached me once, as if she expected me to help her. Bitch. I can't believe I'm actually going to them, if the circumstances were any different….

I'm approaching the rendevous point with the Starjammer. I'm feeling something I haven't felt in years…I'm nervous. I was sure I'd never feel this way again, not with this much power at my disposal. As I reach the airlock I glance at my left hand, what will they think of me? I don't look…human anymore…I'm different now.

I float in front of the airlock, waiting for it to open. My whip appears in my hand for a moment, no I won't need it. Not yet. It's absorbed back into my hand as it opens. I float into the ship…here goes nothing.

Alintorn 3…IN SPACE!!!

After the funeral of Oracle, Professor X is waiting for the team. Electron is still in the copse of trees, apparently stubbornly trying to stay there longer than anyone else. Gerald Stryker and Roxanne are also here.

Xavier looks at everyone intently, then looks at the ground.

"It causes me great pain to say this…but, I am going to cancel the program. All of you are to return to Earth, where you will form another field team. This isn't a reflection on you…it's just become too dangerous here. Rapt and Nadia both have come closer to death than I am comfortable with."

He pauses, and looks down.

"I am sorry. I know many of you enjoyed this program, but I cannot allow you to continue taking risks of this level."

Nicolette let her mouth sink open by accident. She noticed it right away, and closed it to retain some of her dignity. Of course, that didn't mean she was any less shocked. She took a moment to consider her reply.

Post by Rapt "Roc"/Fragment/Fraternity on Apr 11, 2007, 10:42am

The professor doesn't continue. Infact, he doesn't even move. Its almost as if he's trying to stare the questions down, to make them respect his authority. Nicolette appears to be staring right back. Except, for the fact that they are not the only ones not moving.

The sounds of the planet have stopped. The tree's do not sway in the breeze - there is no breeze anymore. For a single moment, there is perfect silence. Roxanne, Adam, Curt, Mike, they can see each other move, but they are the only ones.

And then, the moment ends. Things go back to normal. Then they speed up. Everything is becoming a blur, a screeching sound, like metal dragged across metal filling the copse. Soon, only a circle around the four isn't a complete blur, and then it goes dark.

When the ability to see returns, a few moments later, the lighting is far more artificial. There is a metal floor beneath them. Walls, a ceiling. There is one door to the chamber, flanked by two Shi'ar guards. standing near the four, is a middle aged black human, wearing an eyepatch, both hands on an odd machine, as he collapses, and a Shi'ar carries him out of the room.

A man approaches the four from the shadows behind them, clearing his throat for attention as he does.

It is definitely Rapt, if the wings are any indication, though he is much older, and wearing very formal and ornate clothes, carrying what appears to be a mixture between a cane, a scepter, and, to those familiar with the technology, a laser rifle.

"Welcome to New Chandilar."

"New Chandilar isn't just 'my' spaceship. Its one of the Throneworld ships of the Shi'ar. But…that isn't important right now."

"What is important is it worked, and you are all here." Rapt turns to a guard, "Set the course to rendezvous. Maximum speed, we are already behind schedule."

Rapt stops, looking to Roxanne for a moment, before answering. "Because, after the funeral, we were split up. Things did improve afterwards, but that was a temporary measure. Earth is a lost cause. My empire is under assault from a massive military force that came out of nowhere. We are losing. I brought you forward, so we can change history."

"As for why only you four…" Rapt pauses, to put it the right way. "The only way we could bring people forward without certain side effects, was to avoid bringing anyone currently within the universe at this time."

"Yes. Empire. I am the Imperial Consort of the Shi'ar Empire. With the Majestrix …deceased" Rapt pauses, but moves on quickly, "it puts me in control."

The ship comes to a noticable stop, as the five mutants, and three Shi'ar guards board a smaller vessel, which takes off towards a ship floating in space just ahead. Anyone looking through a window back, see a massive vessel, emblazoned with Shi'ar symbols.

"As for Earth…the Skrulls happened. As for you…there is someone that we will be meeting with that should tell that."

One of the pilots speaks up. "Docking in one minute."

((And…I think TEO can pick it up there if he wants?))

"Lady Osmosis."

"Hm?"

"The final arrival is here. The Imperial Consort's shuttle has docked."

About time.

"Alright. Let them in. Ch'od, you're in charge of the bridge, but don't get used to it, I'll be back in a couple minutes. Just want to greet our guest personally."

I give Lisa a knowing glance that screams, Don't forget what I said.

I make my to the docking bay at a brisk pace, made brisker by shifting into an energy state to do it. More than anything, I think I'm greeting Rapt personally for no reason other than slightling Nicolette. I let her find her own way to the bridge. I sigh as I walk up to him and his crew - not at all looking forwards to this meeting but knowing that it is required. I appear before his group, so much older, stronger too - I like to think - than the last time we all gathered. Not a little girl any more. Blue and yellow body suit. Pistols at my side. Starjammer through and through. I manage to get about half a sentence out.

"Welcome, 'Imperial Consort.' First thing first, your rank means abso…lute…ly…"

My eyes get stuck on them. Mike. Adam. Curt… and Roxanne. My vision locks on her and I can't break away. I mutter through my teeth, clearly at Rapt and clearly not pleased, "What is the meaning of this?"

She's older. A lot older. Bigger. More muscles. Stronger. New outfit. But…I think that's Nadia. I'm almost sure of it; she sounds familiar, looks familiar, even moves kind of familiar.

I look back at her, confused…but happy she grew up to look so cool, so I can't help but smile. "Nadia, that's you right?" I walk over to her.

"How will they be able to help?" asked Nicolette blankly, hovering forwards from behind Nadia. She looked quite familiar. Although she was obviously older, she herself didn't hold herself as looking a year older than 30. She wore a jumpsuit similar to her X-Men uniform, and kept her hair loose now…

She didn't look very pleased, and stared fixedly at the time travelers.

"Alright. Follow me. Rapt is right." I don't like saying that either. "To the bridge."

«Alright, now I have to leave. Sigh. Ch'od, Raza, Sikorsky and Lisa (Kelly >_>) are on the bridge but I don't have time to write out a description.

She listened to Roxanne's outburst calmly. If she was honest with herself, she would rather have continued arguing. She had such a steep moral high ground, watching the others squirm was funny.

She moved over to Roxanne and knelt down before her, putting her hands on her shoulders.

"There's no easy way to say this, so I'll just be honest with you. I'm sorry, but you're all dead…"

"but…the orbital thrusters aren't responding again, and you know…I'd fix it, but I can't fit down the maintenance tunnel, and Raza…well, he's a wimp. Plain and simple."

“What- the- hell- is this?” Her gaze shifted from Roxanne to Rapt and Nicolette. “What, do you think this is funny? What the hell are you trying to pull?” The gaze focused on Nicolette now. It had to be her. …Right? “Bitch. Is this some sort of joke?”

She had to look anywhere but at Roxanne. She couldn’t look at Roxanne. She wouldn’t. And she kept on telling herself that.

It was some kind of cruel joke.

She began whispering to Nicolette.

“Nadia doesn’t trust you not to try anything. I agree with her. I would advise you not to try anything. Take that advice. Just because some of us are more hesitant to use our powers, does not mean that there will not be consequences. I want it abundantly clear that she does not trust you, and that the current circumstances are the only thing that is causing her to tolerate your presence. As soon as this is over, she will collect on the blood debt, and we will all be standing right with her.”

Lisa raised her voice to its normal level.

“Know that, Empress of nothing.”

Nicolette chuckled at Lisa's threats. The concept of her or Nadia believing themselves capable of taking her down was fairly amusing.

I walk away from the group and just sit down. Slow breathing. Control myself. Think clear.

It's just too heavy. Way to heavy. I can't believe everyone's fighting like this, and I'm dead…I mean, I knew I'd die someday, I can take that, but I get killed by a planet? And Earth, why is Earth so bad off? What did the Skrulls do? And everyone is hinting at stuff I don't get and talking about things I don't know about and yelling at each other…

Spinning away from Nicolette, she pulled off her belt, and with it, her blades and guns, and dropped it to the side, moving into a position where she was in front of everyone.

"As most of you know, a weapon of unparraleled power was unleashed by Annihilus. The Annihilation Wave. The wave is over now.

However, Thanos, through the aid of two cosmic entities on par with Galactus, captured him.

Annihilus' hounds are hunting down the remaining Heralds of Galactus, such as Apex. Our goal is to release Galactus from Annihilus' grasp, and be doing that, depriving him of a weapon that could possibly be more devastating than the wave itself.

The main issue here is that we will most likely come into immediate and direct conflict with the Mad Titan in our attempt to release Galactus. We need to be prepared to, at the least, divert him for long enough for us to release Galactus. More likely than not, the only one who will be able to do this will be Apex."

«Reasonably accurate?»

A small vessel…IN SPACE!!!

Log entry.

Obviously, the Heralds of Galactus are important to Annihilus' plans. They wouldn't be going through this much effort to secure them if they were not. Therefore, the current Herald should be the most important, and he is still free. He has motive. He has power. He has allies.

But not enough allies. Therefore, it would be wise for me to join them…for the glory of the Empire.

The Starjammer…IN SPACE!!!

Ch'od yells out, "Battle stations! We have a ship decloaking off the starboard bow!"

A flurry of activity starts, and Nadia enters quickly in an energy form.

"You know what to do! Charge weapons, raise shields, let's blast this bitch out of the sky!"

Ch'od says, "Lady, I hate to interrupt, but they have raised a a parlay flag. And it's not a Wave vessel…it's a Skrull ship."

Nadia shakes her head.

"Still probably a trap," she says. "But let's hear them out. Onscreen."

On the other hand, this was Roxanne. Roxanne didn’t know her yet… but she would. About five years ahead of where Roxanne came from…

“I’ll… try.”

She rested a hand on Roxanne’s shoulder.

I tried to take Nadia to the side, and spoke quietly so only she could hear me.

"I know they aren't particularly trustworthy, but… well, you trust my judgement, right, Nadia? We kind of need their help right now. Hell, we need any help that we can get. Even if they don't pay, we should accept, and the fact that they will pay is just an added bonus, and…"

I paused, and slapped my forehead.

"Oh. Yeah, I get it. You've done it enough times before, I can't believe it took me this long. You're just trying to jack up the fare, right?" I sighed slightly.

This is so going to be a day filled with sighs.

Kl'rt looks down at Roxanne.

"You got in the way, simply put. Ironic. If it were not for the Fantastic Four insisting on getting involved in our previous plans for Terra, we would not have decided to use it as a prison, but rather a resort. Your people could have served drinks and offered towels. But no. It can never be that simple for Terrans."

Nadia nods and winks at Lisa.

"The longer you keep them waiting, the more inclined they are to up the price," she whispers. "Watch and learn."

Kl'rt looks at Nicolette angrily.

"If the Skrull had truly wished to destroy Terra, they would have. In the end, it just wasn't worth bothering with. Have your little throne. It matters not. Even the Shi'ar Imperium is currently stronger than Terra, and that is truly saying something. No offense, Consort. In any event, I grow tired of waiting. I will pledge my personal fortune to the cause, as it is grave, and I do not believe you will be around to cash in the marker."

“You aren’t going to be getting any of that glory that you love so much here,” I sneered at Nicolette. My expression softened as I looked at everyone.

“We screw this up, and we won’t even be footnotes in history. No-one will remember us. There won’t be any recognition. There’s a possibility that there won’t be anything. But that’s not why we’re here. We aren’t here for glory or recognition.” My eyes stopped briefly on Nicolette again, before they moved back to the group in general.

“We aren’t doing this because we want it to be realised. Or because we want to realise ourselves. We can’t just pass this on. We’re doing this because there’s no-one else who can. Because there’s no-one else who is willing, and no-one else who is able. And it doesn’t matter who knows. It doesn’t matter who cares. It doesn’t matter it this is the most stupid thing any of you do in your entire lives. All that matters is that we do this.

“We aren’t all even doing it for the universe. Or for anything still in it. Some of us are doing it for the things and the people who, if we fail at this, who no-one will care about. No-one will even know that they ever existed. Some of us are doing this for them.” My gaze stopped on Roxanne, but moved on before anyone should have noticed.

“And if we don’t manage this… if we don’t pull through and fix this – and make this right – then we die with their screams leaving their lips and resting in our ears. On our minds. In our last thoughts. We make them remember us, and we make sure that they’re sure as hell never going to forget us. And we make sure that whatever they beget… whatever Thanos spawns… whatever any of them spawn- we make sure that in the years- the decades- the centuries, and the millennia to come – that they will always remember our names. And that they will scream at the mention of any single one of our names.

“Be sure of that.”
