Rogue says Wait, you're a student??

Kalvin takes a few minutes to collect himself then approaches Smasher.

"I have a question…why didn't the explosions hurt any of us?"

Fang drops Lila in the medbay letting whatever med crew attend to her.

The Devourer. You have got to be kidding me.

I fall down to the floor exhausted, in a half sitting, half lying position.

"Kill me now…"

Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 11, 2007, 1:08pm

Um… yes, I am. You don't see me often, since well, I have no form. Only people like Ms. Frost can see me. I usually live in Damien's mind.


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by watcher on Jul 11, 2007, 1:09pm

Smasher says, "You guys were all pretty much clear by the time they blew. Tank's wall kept most of the explosion contained. You're a lot luckier than my suit…"

«plot contrivance so that none of you were kiled»

Is he the crazy one, or is that you?


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by Kalvin "Apex" Richmond on Jul 11, 2007, 1:10pm

"Makes sense, I'm gonna go back to being worried now."

He goes back and sits down.

No, Damien's very crazy. Watches too much TV. You should see what's it's like being in his mind, constant moodswings and he plays that stupid Spectrum Song over and over and over again. Actually I never knew I could control a body… until today.

I sit down - not anywhere near Kal - take human form again and let out a colossal sigh.

Better and better all the time…


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by Kalvin "Apex" Richmond on Jul 11, 2007, 1:27pm

After a little while, Kalvin gets up and goes over to where Nadia is. He sits down next to her without a word.


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by Nadia "Osmosis Lass" Johansson on Jul 11, 2007, 1:32pm

I don't look at him and it's only through a supreme effort of will that I don't knock him across the ship.

"It will haunt you for the rest of your life and it should. I'm speaking from experience. How the hell could you do that, Kal?"


Re: The Coming of the Devourer

"She deserved it and I lost control."


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by Nadia "Osmosis Lass" Johansson on Jul 11, 2007, 1:45pm

"She was down. She was out. She was no threat to anybody and you killed her in cold blood."

I'm speaking monotone and stating facts. It almost seems like I'm going somewhere with this, but I stop short of making any sort of point.


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by Kalvin "Apex" Richmond on Jul 11, 2007, 1:49pm

"I was, and I did."

I'm not going to deny it.

"But it's because of her and her friends that Rapt and Nicolette aren't awake right now."

«Also, I'm apparently quite behind in my Paige readings….didn't even know she fought Wild. I'm reading all of it now.»

[[Smasher approaches Tank, "Bout time we got a real fighter around here! Too many of you Xavier kids seem a little squeamish when it comes to doing what needs to be done in times of war. You sticking around?"]]

Post by Nadia "Osmosis Lass" Johansson on Jul 11, 2007, 1:53pm

"We'll handle that. We'll save them. We always do. And when Rapt and Nicolette are back among us, Hussar will still be dead."

"She will…and you're right, I'll have to live with that decision for the rest of my life."

She pauses.

"But you can't honestly tell me that she wouldn't have done the same to either of us."

It came out a lot colder than he'd intended.


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by Tank on Jul 11, 2007, 1:56pm

I've since turned back into a human, so I can taste this… What's it called? Starwhat? Whatever.

"Yeah, a lot of humans are pansies. I'll be around for awhile. Nothing back on Earth for me, so here I stay."

"It's not just humans, unfortunately. That's why it's tough finding good Guard candidates. People are always willing to fight, until they find out that it's not as glorious as the holofeeds show it. And now I'm stuck with only one power set until the techs figure out what to do about my suit. Wish I would have picked something better than resistance to flame…"

"So? We should be better than that."


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by Kalvin "Apex" Richmond on Jul 11, 2007, 2:10pm

"Maybe we should be, but it happens."

He sighs.

…Kidd wouldn't have wanted that.


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by Tank on Jul 11, 2007, 2:12pm

So fire doesn't hurt him, and he picks a name like Smasher. Seems a little weak for a name like Smasher, unless he got the name from drinking a lot.

"People don't know what they want. They say they want help, but when you do it they bitch at you, and cry about it. Screw them."

AH! Eep! Sorry Ms. Marie!

She flies out back into Damien's mind.


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by Risk on Jul 11, 2007, 2:18pm

I stay relatively blank in my thoughts. And quiet.

Contemplating one thing, and running another through my head, over and over, but it's something that I'm definitely keeping to myself.


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by watcher on Jul 11, 2007, 2:28pm

Rogue actually smiles. She walks over to Damien and says, "Next time you want to get out of that cluttered mess, just ask first." She walks away leaving Damien slightly confused.


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by Nadia "Osmosis Lass" Johansson on Jul 11, 2007, 2:28pm

"It… happens…"

I get up and slap him across the face. It takes a lot of will power not to shift my form and break his jaw.

"How can you be so flippant about this?"


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by watcher on Jul 11, 2007, 2:29pm

Smasher grins, "That's always been my motto!"


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 11, 2007, 2:30pm

Well whatdoyaknow I back home in your crazy mind, Ms. Marie can be scary…

So we're fighting the Devourer huh? Can't be all too tough wearing that tiki-hat and skirt.


Lila's going to be fine. Her wounds are bad, but she has medical attention now, and all sorts of futuristic Shiar tech helping her. She'll be up and about in no time. I told ya she was alive, told ya.


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by Risk on Jul 11, 2007, 2:31pm

"What the hell?"

Ghost, you were in Rogue's head. Why do I think you had something to do with that comment?


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by Risk on Jul 11, 2007, 2:32pm

We MIGHT be fighting the Devourer. How would you feel about that?

And… I knew that she was fine… when did I say she wouldn't be… I'm still going to go check up on her in a moment.


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 11, 2007, 2:35pm

That was a strange comment, wondered why she said that?

Good, you can play the hero and be there when she wakes up. You have tough competition though, Spidey already made the first move.


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by Risk on Jul 11, 2007, 2:38pm

I have a feeling I know why she said it, Ghost.

I don't care about playing the hero. You already know how I feel about heroes. I just want to be sure she's okay.


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 11, 2007, 2:47pm

Pfft… too serious, you take all the fun out of teasing.

She starts whistling.


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by Kalvin "Apex" Richmond on Jul 11, 2007, 2:47pm

Kalvin doesn't flinch as he's slapped. He shrugs.

"I don't know…"


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by Risk on Jul 11, 2007, 2:48pm

I run a hand down my face.

Sorry… just a little stressed. So, like I said… how would you feel about staying to fight Galactus?


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by Nadia "Osmosis Lass" Johansson on Jul 11, 2007, 2:55pm

I turn away from him. I'm in human form now, unlike on the ship. Which means tear ducts. Which means the ability to cry, which I've started doing.

"Figure it out."

I stalk out of the lounge.


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 11, 2007, 2:56pm

Somebody has to keep you're sorry butt safe.


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by Risk on Jul 11, 2007, 2:59pm

You could go back with Rogue. Don't forget that. I mean… the power cosmic would probably be able to… I don't even know, actually. That's pretty unusual. But I don't want the opportunity to arise where we might find out what it could do to you.


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by Kalvin "Apex" Richmond on Jul 11, 2007, 2:59pm

Kalvin puts his head into his hands and just sits there.


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by Risk on Jul 11, 2007, 3:03pm

I walk over to Smasher and sit down besides him.

"How long?"


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by watcher on Jul 11, 2007, 3:05pm

"We have a few hours. I'm not even planning on doing the briefing until you guys get some rest."


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by Risk on Jul 11, 2007, 3:08pm

"I'm entirely fine, I don't need to rest."

More than a small lie, but it really doesn't matter right now.

"I just want to know what the plan is."

I figure it's probably best to ask for one this time.


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 11, 2007, 3:11pm

See! You're doing it already! I swear, if I go back home I'm going to find you dead or worse.

She tisked.

I'll be fine. It'll take more than a lame old energy blast to take me.


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by Risk on Jul 11, 2007, 3:14pm

Doing what again? And like I said, I'll be fine, you're not my mother….

And the problem with that is that from what I've read, it can do a lot more than just blast energy… seriously, Ghost, give some thought to going home. It's better than you getting hurt pointlessly.


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 11, 2007, 3:36pm

Fine? Like how you got tossed around rag-dolled back there. Fine like how you're lying right now, you need rest.

I'm not going to go home while you fight Galactus and hey, maybe I can be some use, I was in that last fight.


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by Risk on Jul 11, 2007, 3:38pm

Ghost…

A hand goes to the bridge of my nose – but I honestly may be too tired for this argument. And that would be a first. Too tired… huh. Really doesn’t happen often.

It’s too dangerous…


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 11, 2007, 3:41pm

And it's even more dangerous for you.


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by Risk on Jul 11, 2007, 3:44pm

Doesn't matter. I have to stay.


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 11, 2007, 3:58pm

Ghost flies out of Damien.


Re: The Coming of the Devourer
Post by Risk on Jul 12, 2007, 11:09am

Wow.

Did she actually listen to me? Or is she just tired of arguing? I really have no idea…

If she did listen to me, well… there’s no way she’ll get hurt in all of this.

I get back up with a sigh, rising very slowly to make sure that I don’t fall over as I do so, and I head for the medbay to check on Lila.
