Warming up (pre-mission 12 for Madrox's squad)
Post by Jamie Madrox on Aug 19, 2007, 3:51pm

"ATTENTION ALL ADVISEES OF PROFESSOR MADROX, PLEASE MEET ON THE FRONT LAWN IN TWENTY MINUTES."

The messages goes out over the PA system as Jamie walks through the school, a handful of dupes in tow. Some carrying boxes, some carrying nothing. It's one hell of an entourage though. When they get outside the dupes set the boxes down and begin to unpack them. It almost looks like one of them is setting up a picnic, as he lays down a blanket on the grass, but at the same time another one is setting up a white board while yet another is going through a stack of folders.

Joshua's at the lawn, crouched down on his knees watching.

One of the dupes walks over to Josh as Jamie Prime assists with set up

"Joshua Cujo, right?"

Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Aug 19, 2007, 4:09pm

"Huh, yep, unless I'm mistaken, which I don't think I am. Because if I am, then that could mean I'm going insane, which is a troubling prospect within itself."


Re: Warming up (pre-mission 12 for Madrox's squad)
Post by Jamie Madrox on Aug 19, 2007, 4:12pm

A second dupe walks up

"Insanity isn't too bad, it's just a lot of talking to yourself."

"Who asked you?"

"What does it matter? I had something to say!"

"Don't be a wise guy and get back to work!"

The two are up face to face about to fight when they both get absorbed by Jamie Prime.

"Excuse them, aggressive dupes come out all too often. So you're the illustrious Mr. Cujo, I do believe you're the only one of my students that I haven't met yet."

Another dupe runs up

"And Ms. Stevenson."

"Yes, and Ms. Stevenson. But you're actually here."

"So we're suppose to have some sort of student to teacher meeting?"

He arches his neck.

"What's happening anyways?"


Re: Warming up (pre-mission 12 for Madrox's squad)
Post by Jamie Madrox on Aug 19, 2007, 4:25pm

"We had a big group meeting where we did the get to know you deal and I handed out costumes, I could have sworn someone was sent to inform you that you would need to come and make that up."

He scratches his head

"And this? Today is the start of the field day activities, which means you guys get to actually work within your squads instead of the usual evils we go against. No alternate universes, no abductions, just team work and strategy."


Re: Warming up (pre-mission 12 for Madrox's squad)
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Aug 19, 2007, 4:32pm

"I was at that group meeting, didn't make a costume though. Hmm… field day. So it's just regular training? Why not a danger room session?"


Re: Warming up (pre-mission 12 for Madrox's squad)
Post by Jamie Madrox on Aug 19, 2007, 4:32pm

"The danger room will be involved, I just prefer trying to get everyone together outside. It makes it feel less like a chore."

Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Aug 19, 2007, 4:41pm

"Well we'll all probably kill each other. I'll just wait here for everyone."

Sits back.

"Nice out today."


Re: Warming up (pre-mission 12 for Madrox's squad)
Post by Jamie Madrox on Aug 19, 2007, 6:06pm

"Sure is."

Jamie says as the dupes keep setting up

"That's why we're out here and not in one of the stuffy meeting rooms."


Re: Warming up (pre-mission 12 for Madrox's squad)
Post by Nick Nephrahim on Aug 19, 2007, 6:09pm

"I like my room. It has my things in it."

I step outside. Hmm, only one more person here? Besides Maddox of coruse. So much for being late.

"What are we out here to acomplish then?"

Post by Marisol Morales on Aug 19, 2007, 6:17pm

"Boo! Madrox-Team sucks! Boooooo!"

I wave at them from the roof of the school.

"… If I cut him, would he heal?"


Re: Warming up (pre-mission 12 for Madrox's squad)
Post by Jamie Madrox on Aug 19, 2007, 6:20pm

"I was hoping to keep you kids away from that sort of action."

He says pointing up at Army on the roof.

"Actually….."

He smirks and rubs his chin, nodding at a dupe who nods at another and so forth and so on until a dupe walks up behind Army on the roof and taps him on the shoulder.

Post by Sadie "Suicide Queen" Hannoura on Aug 19, 2007, 6:21pm

Sadie waves to Army, then resigns herself to wandering up to the rest of her squad.

She shifts uncomfortably in her black unstable molecule bodysuit shipped specially from Four Freedoms Plaza, then sidles up to Nick.

"How's it going?" she asks with an air of neutrality.


Re: Warming up (pre-mission 12 for Madrox's squad)
Post by Marisol Morales on Aug 19, 2007, 6:22pm

I lean back over my shoulder. "Yeah?"


Re: Warming up (pre-mission 12 for Madrox's squad)
Post by Jamie Madrox on Aug 19, 2007, 6:25pm

Rather the one dupe, Army sees a dozen, all speaking in unison as they stand in a semi circle around him.

"Do you fly too?"

Back on the ground though, Jamie Prime is laughing at the thoughts of what they'll do.

"Don't worry about it, immaturity gets you nowhere."

He notices Sadie sit down

"Ah, Ms. Hannoura, it's nice to see that you didn't transfer out."


Re: Warming up (pre-mission 12 for Madrox's squad)
Post by Nick Nephrahim on Aug 19, 2007, 6:25pm

"Oh! Hey Sadie!"

I smile at her.

"You know, I haven't seen you in AGES. Where have you been hiding?"

Post by Baby "Gravita" Tigo on Aug 19, 2007, 6:27pm

"Hello." I say quickly, stepping onto the lawn. There's a wool cap pulled tightly over my head.


Re: Warming up (pre-mission 12 for Madrox's squad)
Post by Marisol Morales on Aug 19, 2007, 6:27pm

I can't help but snicker a little bit. "What, are you threatening me? Dude, I'm just watching; nothing else to be done around here at the moment. And it's not like you're even scary with that act. Zero times twelve is still zero."


Re: Warming up (pre-mission 12 for Madrox's squad)
Post by Jamie Madrox on Aug 19, 2007, 6:28pm

"Monkey pile?"

"Monkey pile."

The whole mass of dupes jump on him, dragging him away from the edge of the roof and not letting up.

"Monkey pile on Army!"


Re: Warming up (pre-mission 12 for Madrox's squad)
Post by Marisol Morales on Aug 19, 2007, 6:36pm

"Ugh! Offoffoff!" I fight my way out of the Madrox monkey pile and hop off, falling down to the ground below, landing beside Baby and returning Sadie's wave. "Don't mind us, just taking in the scene."

Post by Baby "Gravita" Tigo on Aug 19, 2007, 6:49pm

"…Is there a reason I'm out here and not back in bed?"


Re: Warming up (pre-mission 12 for Madrox's squad)
Post by Sadie "Suicide Queen" Hannoura on Aug 19, 2007, 6:52pm

Ignoring the idiocy, Sadie inclines her head towards Nick.

"I've been around. Studying. Seeing as this is a school."

She glares over her glasses at the Madrox dogpile.


Re: Warming up (pre-mission 12 for Madrox's squad)
Post by Jamie Madrox on Aug 19, 2007, 6:52pm

"Because we have a group trainer tonight and I wanted to make sure you kids were actually going to be ready to work together."

He glances over at Army

"Your squad is going to be having the same type of affair Mr. Rosewell."

Back to the sheets

"So anyway, I was hoping to get all of you into one place as just the squad so that everyone could get a feel for who they'll be working with. There will be awards handed out to students who excel."

Post by Baby "Gravita" Tigo on Aug 19, 2007, 6:56pm

"So Sadie should just go back to her room then, right? She can't really excel…on second thought…how about I just go back to my room and she stays here…"


Re: Warming up (pre-mission 12 for Madrox's squad)
Post by Jamie Madrox on Aug 19, 2007, 6:57pm

"Everybody is staying here Ms. Tigo."

Post by Sadie "Suicide Queen" Hannoura on Aug 19, 2007, 6:58pm

Sadie glowers at Baby, and seeing Army, steps forward. "What's your damage? I've done nothing but let you cheat off of my tests."


Re: Warming up (pre-mission 12 for Madrox's squad)
Post by Nick Nephrahim on Aug 19, 2007, 6:58pm

"Sometimes easy to forget, what with all the mahem and murder recently. Good to see I can ask someone to help me with my tables."

I turn back to the pile.

Excel? At what?


Re: Warming up (pre-mission 12 for Madrox's squad)
Post by Marisol Morales on Aug 19, 2007, 7:05pm

I whisper Sadie's way, trying to save her from a serious tooth related incident. "Baby's kind of been in a bad way ever since we got attacked - some bad stuff went down and she got the worst of it. Don't hold it too much against her."


Re: Warming up (pre-mission 12 for Madrox's squad)
Post by Baby "Gravita" Tigo on Aug 19, 2007, 7:05pm

"Lots of things Sadie, and don't whisper Army. It's rude."


Re: Warming up (pre-mission 12 for Madrox's squad)
Post by Jamie Madrox on Aug 19, 2007, 7:08pm

He sighs

"Alright, since apparently the simple idea of having to leave your rooms is offensive to you kids, I'll tell you what. Training sessions in the Danger Room tonight, you have to work as a team. Now either you can stick around now and get some insight into what you'll be up against and let you pick, as a group, who is in charge, or I can throw you all in blind and bark orders over the loud speakers."

He pauses

"Would you like that kids? Do you want me to do my best impression of Professor Summers and show you only base levels of respect?"


Re: Warming up (pre-mission 12 for Madrox's squad)
Post by Sadie "Suicide Queen" Hannoura on Aug 19, 2007, 7:10pm

Sadie looks at the group around her, chewing her lip. "I don't see anyone I'd feel comfortable appointing. Why are Jake and Paige and Army all on the other squad? We have no leader."


Re: Warming up (pre-mission 12 for Madrox's squad)
Post by Baby "Gravita" Tigo on Aug 19, 2007, 7:11pm

I don't say a word, I just mumble some things.


Re: Warming up (pre-mission 12 for Madrox's squad)
Post by Marisol Morales on Aug 19, 2007, 7:13pm

I shrug. "Not like me or Jake or Paige'd make good leaders, anyway. Why don't you give it a shot?"


Re: Warming up (pre-mission 12 for Madrox's squad)
Post by Baby "Gravita" Tigo on Aug 19, 2007, 7:14pm

"You lead."


Re: Warming up (pre-mission 12 for Madrox's squad)
Post by Jamie Madrox on Aug 19, 2007, 7:16pm

Madrox glares at Army

"Can we get the kids not on my squad out of here now? No offense Mr. Rosewell, but your team should be getting ready as well."


Re: Warming up (pre-mission 12 for Madrox's squad)
Post by Nick Nephrahim on Aug 19, 2007, 7:17pm

I shurg. Maybe It would be a decent idea.

"You should know better then to talk first after he asked."


Re: Warming up (pre-mission 12 for Madrox's squad)
Post by Marisol Morales on Aug 19, 2007, 7:21pm

I'd tell Madrox to go screw himself, but, well…yeah, I'm pretty sure that joke writes itself.

"Fine, then, I'll go to my own team." I start to walk off. "And it'll have blackjack and hookers…in fact, screw the team."


Re: Warming up (pre-mission 12 for Madrox's squad)
Post by Nick Nephrahim on Aug 19, 2007, 7:23pm

"Hey Lex! Keep a better eye on your kids!"

Jamie starts to laugh

"ANYWAY, where were we?"


Re: Warming up (pre-mission 12 for Madrox's squad)
Post by Baby "Gravita" Tigo on Aug 19, 2007, 7:30pm

"What?"

Wasn't really paying attention.

Wiping her glasses on her sleeve, she raises her chin to Baby.

"Alright. I'll co-ordinate us. What are we supposed to accomplish, Mr. Madrox?"


Re: Warming up (pre-mission 12 for Madrox's squad)

I begin a slow clap.

Post by Jamie Madrox on Aug 19, 2007, 7:46pm

"That's the spirit."

One of the dupes starts drawing up on the white board. First a list of all of their names with Sadie's under lined, and next to it is a giant question mark

"For tonight we have two challenges set up to test your abilities and team work."

"That part I'm not allowed to tell you, but I can tell you that the first one will be much easier then the second."

He pauses

"This was much easier when I thought I could spoil the surprise. One task is going to be about saving lives, and the other will be about survival."

Joshua fell back on the grass, looking at the clouds.

"So what do we do before then?"

"It's a game. You have different classes that excel at some things and suck at others. So you coordinated everyone to excel cohesively and everyone gets stronger for it.

Like…uh…Baby and Nick would be damage dealers, but you'd be a liar if you didn't agree Paige or Tom could knock them on their asses in a second if it came to melee, so you'd need to support them somehow, keep them up.

And Josh and Baby are a lot more than just damage, they're pretty versatile, so we have to figure out how and when to use their utility."

She removes her glasses, rubs her nose, and crosses her arms.

She replaces her glasses on her nose. "Well, that's good Baby. We just need to make sure it stays that way; so everyone make sure nobody puts Baby in a corner."

She paces looking at the grass. "Um, Josh. What exactly do you do?"
