The team arrives back at the mansion to find a very somber atmosphere.

"Go team."


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Aug 21, 2007, 12:05pm

I take a seat in the corner of the room and don't say a word. Only thing I'd say is "I told you so" anyways. I knew this was going to happen.

Lex sits down on the couch.

"Fuck."


Re: Rally Follow-up

Pester finally looks around.

"…Where's Xavier?"


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Protoman on Aug 21, 2007, 12:07pm

"They moved him to another facility before we got there, left a trap for us."

"They said it didn't go well Pester…

He's not… Is he?"


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Pester on Aug 21, 2007, 12:09pm

Pester's eyes go dead for a moment.

"Tell me they don't know that mutants from this very building were the ones who tried to spring him."

"You know, this might sound a little stupid, but maybe we should do something about the Mansion and the school? If Registration happens, they'll be coming here. I'm not saying disband, or anything, but could we relocate?"


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Protoman on Aug 21, 2007, 12:09pm

"Christ, I hope not…" Lex answers both of them at the same time.


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Lisa "Nephy" Nephrahim on Aug 21, 2007, 12:10pm

"Let's just register."


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Last Hero on Aug 21, 2007, 12:10pm

Rogue nods, "I think they do…"

«But as far as I am concerned, I don't think SHIELD will be releasing that information. Especially since we escaped.»

"The Sentinal program on the other hand… Sure, that's valid…"

I'm just glad the string girl doesn't want to take me up on that spar. That's a world of pain I probably wouldn't want, thinking of the way she curses.

Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Aug 21, 2007, 12:18pm

"If you don't register and drag your daughter and her mother into your stupidity they will die Alexander." I say forcefully.

"You've already lost your mother due to your actions, do you want to lose Jubilee and Alexia too?"

Lex was ready to reply, until Dillon mentioned his mother.

"FUCK YOU!"

Dillon finds that his shirt is currently ablaze.

«Lex is basically the Hayden Christensen of the New Mutants»


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Orchestra the Mighty on Aug 21, 2007, 12:21pm

I tear off the burning shirt and toss it to the ground. I quickly stand and glare at Lex.

"Very mature Lex. You've beaten Pester silly for things he did with Alexia but you won't let your common sense take over to protect your family? Why don't you just go set them on fire now, save the Sentinels some energy."


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Lisa "Nephy" Nephrahim on Aug 21, 2007, 12:21pm

"ALEXANDER SERDEN, can't you behave EVER?!"


Re: Rally Follow-up

Zephyr quickly put out the shirt.

"Damnit, Lex! This isn't the time! We all need to keep clear heads."


Re: Rally Follow-up

"Go to hell, both of you. Dillon, you of all people should know that this is wrong."


Re: Rally Follow-up

"Stop being a moron!" I direct a weak sonic attack at Alexander. "Dillon is entirely right."


Re: Rally Follow-up

"How is it wrong if it becomes law?"


Re: Rally Follow-up

"They want us to register for being born a certain way? HOW IS THAT RIGHT?!"

"Bwhahahahahhahahahah!" I can't help but laugh at Lex.

"Of course it's wrong, but I'd rather give up the right to privacy then give up my life. Choose whatever path you want, Jubilee too, but I'm tell you now I will not allow you to drag that child into your nonsense rebellion. I thought you grew up."

Zephyr rubbed his temples.
"What about Magneto? He's bound to do something now."

Post by Protoman on Aug 21, 2007, 12:27pm

"Nephy, you don't even get a say in this. You can just run off, back to Generation X and away from the Sentinels."

Back to Dillon.

"I think I told you to go to hell."

"Alexander. No one's saying that we can't fight the law and try to get it changed. But no sense in joining or starting an underground rebellion to do so."

"Me and Sephula will save you a spot." I grin.

"Be immature if you want, but this is how history works. Christians, Jews, Blacks, Asian, Gays…all of them have had to fight for their civil rights, and they did so peacefully. By any means necessary didn't do shit but get Malcom shot by his own people."

"If you want change, then fight for it with your words, assuming you ever let your brain begin processing ones other than 'Fuck' 'Shit' and 'Hell."


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Protoman on Aug 21, 2007, 12:33pm

"Dillon…I honestly can't believe you."

Lex stands up.

"They're going to kill us all, I hope you know that."

He leaves the room.

«Mostly because I'm leaving for awhile.»

Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Maria "Coca" Parsons on Aug 21, 2007, 1:12pm

I half think about sending a small fireball at his backside

Noob….hmmpfh

I decide against it though and take off for an afternoon flight.


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Pester on Aug 21, 2007, 1:19pm

Pester gawks at Whatshername's wings. He then realizes he's gawking, and pretends to watch some TV.


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Maria "Coca" Parsons on Aug 21, 2007, 1:21pm

After a few feet…I remember that Senor Worthington told me that the Professor discourages flying in the mansion….so I set down and proceed on my way out the mansion.


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Pester on Aug 21, 2007, 1:23pm

Pester sighs a little. Walking around on the ground like that when you can fly whenever you want… What a waste. He's vicariously disappointed.


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Lisa "Nephy" Nephrahim on Aug 21, 2007, 1:24pm

"Flying's not that fun Pester."


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Pester on Aug 21, 2007, 1:27pm

"I wouldn't know."

He crosses his legs and flips around the TV channels, not even noticing what's on the screen.


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Lisa "Nephy" Nephrahim on Aug 21, 2007, 1:32pm

"Haa…"

I lean agienst him on the couch.

"Lex was right. I can't wait to go back home to the base. But you guys will be okay, right?"


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Aug 21, 2007, 1:33pm

"Doubtful." I glance at Pester. "Any ideas formulating in there?"


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Pester on Aug 21, 2007, 1:35pm

Pester takes notice that there's a girl leaning on his arm. He wonders what Rogue would think of this. Or Alexia. Or any of the myriad of people who would like to see him burn in Hell. But he doesn't make anything of it. He doesn't know if it's platonic, sisterly, romantic on her part, or for whatever reason, but it's nice.

Meh. Don't look too far into it.

"We'll get by. We always do. And let's not go nuts, Lex is rarely right."


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Lisa "Nephy" Nephrahim on Aug 21, 2007, 1:36pm

"Wish you two woulden't fight so often.

Meisha, you should come back too. Or do you like the mansion better?"


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Pester on Aug 21, 2007, 1:36pm

Pester glowers for less than a second at Meisha, before responding.

"They know we went after Xavier. They would have to, whoever 'they' may be. Something's coming."


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Maria "Coca" Parsons on Aug 21, 2007, 1:37pm

Just then I walk back in the Wreck Room looking rather frustrated. My flight was cut short by the rain. I HATE the rain.

I wonder if I should ask….Ororo to do something about it.

Not thinking…I instinctively shake off the water…much like a dog does.

I turn back to Joshua.

"I gathered. With that? Or will it be taken out of our hands, do you think?"


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Pester on Aug 21, 2007, 1:41pm

"Well, I- EEYIAAAAA!"

Pester cringes and curls up into a ball as a wave of body heat temperature water splashes against him.


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Lisa "Nephy" Nephrahim on Aug 21, 2007, 1:43pm

"Wha?"

I squirm away from the water and shrieking Pester.

"That was not very nice."

Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Aug 21, 2007, 1:43pm

"Not the best way to dry off… sorry, I do not think that we have met." I get up and extend my hand. "Meisha Aisha."


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Pester on Aug 21, 2007, 1:45pm

Oh great, don't flip her over and pummel her. Just me. Fine, see if I care.

He does care.

"Anyway," Pester says to Nephy as he dries himself against the couch, "That base you've got is probably the safest place for you guys."


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Maria "Coca" Parsons on Aug 21, 2007, 1:47pm

I gasp when I realize I've wet everyone.

"Eu sou pesaroso!….I'm so sorry!"

"I wasn't aware that you all were here."

I'm soo embarrassed.

I shake Meisha's hand.

"Maria….Maria Parsons."


Re: Rally Follow-up

Alexia walks in, glares at Pester then turns to Nephy.

"How'd it go?"


Re: Rally Follow-up

"Are you staying here, or do you get to fly off somewhere to get away from this madness?"


Re: Rally Follow-up

"Not that good. But we can't just hide Pester. That won't solve anything."


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Pester on Aug 21, 2007, 1:50pm

Pester simply sits quietly and keeps an eye out for any purple boots.


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Aug 21, 2007, 1:51pm

"It will not solve much, but it is a good way of staying safe." I sit back down on the arm of one of the sofas, still a little shaken over things.

I obviously feel like an outsider at this point.

I chuckle at the damned comment.

I'm really confused now.

Alexia walks off in a huff, she's pissed about being ignored.


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Pester on Aug 21, 2007, 2:09pm

Oh good. I talk to her, she wants to kill me. I don't talk to her, she wants to kill me. Maybe I should just jump off a bridge, that'll make her happy.

Actually, that would be less depressing if it actually WOULDN'T make her happy. Irony is tough.

"Well anyway, we'll be perfectly happy to have you around here," Pester says to the dragon lady.

Re: Rally Follow-up

I notice Alexia's demeanor.

"Did I, or someone else upset her?"

I turn back to Nephy.

"Oh..well then that sounds beautiful. Perhaps I will take you up on your offer. I'm not afraid of water….I am just more comfortable with fire."

"Huh?"

"Oh that's very nice."

Just then I notice the fireplace.

"Could you excuse me for one moment."

I walk over to the unlit fireplace…let out a fireball then start drying as much of me (that fits) as possible inside the fireplace.

"Oooooooooooooooooh. You people have no idea what you are missing" I say as I rub more of myself in the fire.

Somebody said her name… Oh God, somebody said it… Remember, remember… Cracko… Colombia… Coke… Coco?

"Coco."

Phew!

My smile turns to a straight faced stare.

"It's CocA…or even Maria…but never Coco.."

I roll my eyes then mumble in Portuguese.

Pester lowers his head in shame. First people start calling him by his regular, lame name, now he's gone and pissed off the new girl.

«She only called him by his real name because someone said Joshua instead of Pester :P »

Noticing the change in Joshua's demeanor. I feel bad.

«It bugs him no matter what the reason, he's quite anal about it. I never said it made sense, just that it happens. ^_^ »

Pester squirms ever so slightly upon hearing her say his name. Though hearing her say it in a Portuguese accent means the cushion maintains it's position on his lap.

"No worries, not a problem."


Re: Rally Follow-up

A purple hand appears and removes the cushion.


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Pester on Aug 21, 2007, 3:05pm

"Hm."

Pester looks down for a moment before looking at a blank spot of wall at the other end of the room.

"So yeah, you're perfectly welcome here."

Purple again. I avoid peeking.

"That's Alexia, isin't it?"


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Pester on Aug 21, 2007, 3:08pm

"Looks that way, yes."

I didn't think she could do that when she without being in the room. She's getting better. Good for her.

Pester slowly crosses his legs to avoid drawing unnecessary attention.


Re: Rally Follow-up

I'm startled and confused by the purple hand.

I guess I must get used to these sort of things, living here though

I look at Nephy

"Alexia? Alexia…is a hand?"

I begin mumbling in Portuguese again.


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Lisa "Nephy" Nephrahim on Aug 21, 2007, 3:15pm

"No no, Alexia is that girl who left a while back without saying much. This is her power. Well, she can exsplain it all better then I can."

I steal a glance right before his legs cross.

Alexia remains just outside the room, in the shadows.

Before Nephy can answer.

"Oh…nevermind."


Re: Rally Follow-up

"No, Nephy, stay. You should hear this too, you're my friend."

"I think I should tell you that I'm going home, so you won't have to worry about anything involving me anymore."


Re: Rally Follow-up

Re: Rally Follow-up

Pester's eyes hit the floor, and stay there.

"If that would make you happy, then go for it."


Re: Rally Follow-up

I look puzzled at Nephy.

"That underwater base is sounding much more appealing…"


Re: Rally Follow-up

"Alexia? I hope that you and I can meet again under better circumstances"

I turn and try to discreetly walk out of the room.


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Pester on Aug 21, 2007, 4:06pm

"Hey, if I called it an apocalyptic wasteland you'd cut me. It sounds like you need to work on your coping strategies."

It's hard not to get defensive when being publicly attacked in this way. Behind his cold eyes, Pester's mind is struggling to sift through all the hurtful things to say, and try to keep it constructive. It's not working very well.

He waves to Coca, knowing any good impression she may have gotten of him has been dashed against the rocks.


Re: Rally Follow-up

"Fuck you…I loved you…"

She turns and leaves quickly to avoid showing anyone that she's crying.

"Later, Coca."

I turn to see Pester talking to himself. I walk over.

"You're not an asshole Pester, you're just confused."

~Damien~

I duck out of the way quickly to avoid Alexia walking into me - and more importantly, knocking my arm - and lean against the wall, almost unnoticably shakily.

"You know… I knew this place would fall apart without me." I smile weakly before dropping my gaze. "…Just what exactly happened to my room?"


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Pester on Aug 21, 2007, 4:19pm

"Don't bother, I probably won't stick around too long. I just need somewhere to rest and recover a little while before heading back out to space. I only brought it up because… well, it's one of the easier things to talk about."

I drag myself over to the couch, taking care not to have either of my arms bump into anything, and sit down.

"What's what that about?"


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Lisa "Nephy" Nephrahim on Aug 21, 2007, 4:22pm

"I'll see you, Pester, Damien."

I leave the boys to their bonding. I could tell before that Pester really liked Damien. I don't want to get in the way.

Re: Rally Follow-up

"Bye bye."

Maybe I'll get lucky and she'll run off, telling all her little Gen X friends what a bastard I am. That would be great.

"I don't think I have the words to describe how bad the President dying in that stuff is, yet."


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Pester on Aug 21, 2007, 4:33pm

"Somehow I don't think that's why you seem to be so miserable. Or at least not the main reason. Or the only reason. Or something."

Pester sniffles a little, and reaches over to the table on the end of the couch. He's pretty sure he saw Coca drinking something that looks tasty. He gives it a sniff, and swigs it. Sweet stuff.


Re: Rally Follow-up
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Aug 21, 2007, 4:37pm

"It's reason enough," I smile blankly. "Really, my reasons aren't so much about being miserable, but more… is it alright if we get onto that later? I care about the people here, and this development…? I think it all speaks for itself. And the Professor being carted away? And President being dead is obviously bad on its own."

I glance at the drink.

"Did you seriously just take a drink someone else left behind?"

«I know, it said he only thought it was hers. It could have been anyone's.»

He sighs heavily, and his head hangs low.

"Yes. Yes, I did. Worst case scenario, it kills me. Best case, I stop being thirsty."

He takes a sip. Something solid hits his tongue, and he decides that's the time to put the cup down.

"Yeah, we could use everyone who comes around."
