Everyone made it back in one piece before the cops showed up.

Havok congratulates them all on a job well done then heads back to his office.

"So…do we usually just run into crap like that when we go out? Because I like it."

"So are Baby and I the only ones that got actual 'shopping' done?" I say thumbing through my bags.

"Also, it doesn't speak highly of the team that we have to flee crime scenes before five oh shows up."

"You know…" I say, still wincing, although my burn is mostly taken care of by the medical tech we've got. "…if we wanted to be good heroes, shouldn't we talk to the cops?"

Glad Paige echoes my sentiments.

"Well we are smart women." I say, whipping out one of the violet dresses.

I stare at the dress for a moment…hope that one's Paige's…

"Verily." I say looking at the red dress I couldn't take my eyes off of. Something about the allure of a red dress seems stereotypical, but I couldn't help it. "Shopping precedes dealing with losers in costumes."

But then…that red dress looks nice, too. "I'll agree with that, yeah."

I snap my fingers at Army, trying to get his attention.

"Is a cocktail dress all it takes to get your attention?"

"Do most guys really need anything else?"


Re: Post Mission 9
Post by Marisol Morales on Jul 22, 2007, 1:12am

"Food will also work. But, yes, cocktail dresses are a good way to get my attention."

"Men." I say whimsically as I continue to hold my acquisitions up against me in the mirror and wonder what I'll actually spend the money on.

I really need to do something about this hair.

"What's with the 'fro, Paige?"


Re: Post Mission 9
Post by Paige "Anima" O'Hara on Jul 22, 2007, 1:24am

"A gift from Electro." I mutter into the mirror. "I didn't think it was possible for me to look hideous, but alas, there it is."


Re: Post Mission 9
Post by Marisol Morales on Jul 22, 2007, 1:29am

"Not hideous." I give the fro a pat. "I think it gives you a little 70s flair. Like a Cleopatra Jones thing."


Re: Post Mission 9

"Makes you look like an Albino Misty Knight." I giggle.

"In a good way."

I got nothin

Jake just stands back and laughs quietly

"Telling me that I look like a blaxpoitation reject is not helping."

["Because they were blaxploitation dolphins in the seventies…."

Gah, no! Enough Bill Bailey! Stop, mind! I command you!

See? See? What did I say about the angry kittens?!]

"…that was just about the weakest comeback I've ever heard, Jake." I turn back to Paige. "It's no big deal, though. Josh controls electricity, right? He can probably fix it easy."


Re: Post Mission 9
Post by Jake "Flare" Lange on Jul 22, 2007, 1:53am

"Yeah, it was first thing that came to mind."


Re: Post Mission 9

"What makes Misty Knight a reject? Saw her and Iron Fist kicking ass on this web vid once, bitch is hardcore as hell."


Re: Post Mission 9
Post by Paige "Anima" O'Hara on Jul 22, 2007, 2:03am

"I was thinking more along the lines of me looking like I just got kicked off the set of some funkalicious flick. I don't know shit about Misty Knight."

This definitely seals it. Not only am I the world's worst telepath, I'm also a crappy hero and a shitty teammate. People lost limbs and got bad haircuts, meanwhile, I accidentally killed a cockatiel.

"Hey guys."

Oh, and my pocket's full of exsanguinated flies. Stupid spider.

"Hey, Eddie." I barely hear him as he comes in. "Seriously man, enough with the whispering. Speak up."


Re: Post Mission 9
Post by Ixnay on Jul 23, 2007, 6:32pm

"Seriously, I just have a naturally soft voice. I guess."

I shrug.

"Well, you got to work on that, then. Dig deep, speak hard. You want a girl, right? You'll never get one if she can't even hear you."


Re: Post Mission 9
Post by Ixnay on Jul 24, 2007, 11:34pm

"Girl? Nah, hadn't really thought much about that…I guess…"

I look at my feet. Stupid. Real stupid getting actually involved with people.

"It's not like it's the most unattractive thing about me."


Re: Post Mission 9
Post by Marisol Morales on Jul 24, 2007, 11:47pm

"All right, Eddie, let me show you how it's done. First, heads up." I push his head up for him. "Now, stand straight. Don't whimper. Breath deep,try and focus on what you're going to say before you say it, and go."


Re: Post Mission 9
Post by Ixnay on Jul 24, 2007, 11:50pm

"Alright then."

I look him right in the eye.

"It's gotta be easy for you people with the, you know, sexy powers or whatever. I use my powers, I end up eating bugs for a week."

I pull the flies out of my pocket for emphasis.

"Or switching between sleeping and stuffing my face. Or itching myself in inappropriate ways. It's really a thrill a minute."

I turn and walk out of the room.
