|Appearance|
The very best way the describe Nathaniel is huge. He towers over almost anyone and his powers make him appear like a giant hulk of mass with absolutely no fat. Everything about him is physical and intimidating like he merely needs to look at you a certain way to crush you with ease. Nathaniel bares a few scars that are tiny puncture marks in his arms from Junior deciding to try and utilize the venom that naturally pumps through his veins. He keeps his clothing rather simply and prefers to go with something that will stretch on account of his abilities. He was best known during his days of crime in Gotham for wearing a mask that he will sometimes put on again during training sessions at the school.

|Strengths|
Hand to Hand|Nathaniel has hand extensive training in hand to hand combat and prefers using his fists over weapons but will willingly use a pair of brass knuckles just to add a little more to each strike. He has access to different forms of martial arts thanks to his father and picks up on new techniques slightly quicker than most thanks to his background.
Skilled Scientist|Nathaniel is very talented in the fields of science. Especially those concerning biology and chemistry. Many don't notice this about him.
Escapology|A skill every criminal must learn in order not to get caught.
Expert Strategist|The man with the plan. Nathaniel knows how to think a few steps ahead to insure his own victory though his closest friend manages to make that difficult more often than not.
High Intelligence|Many, if not all, never take the time to notice how intelligent Nathaniel really is. He actually has high marks in his non-physically based classes.
Observation|Being the most silent one has proven useful. He's able to stand towards the edge of the crowd and simply observe everything and notice details others often overlook.

|Weaknesses|
Braun|Nathaniel is permanently labeled the braun and underappreciated because of it. People treat him like the dumb jock just because his gang of green friends use him for his physical strength.
Blood Loss|Losing blood makes him much weaker since he depends on the venom that pumps through his veins for strength.
Bane|Nathaniel will never disobey his father even if he doesn't agree with him.
Joker Jr|Nathaniel is forced to protect Jr. no matter what.

|Fears|
Venom|Nathaniel has seen what this drug has done to his father and fears he may need to use it as well someday.
Joker|His son is a raging psychopath making the creator even more fearful.
Bane|Despite his currently weakened state, Nathaniel still manages to fear his father.



Image

|Personality|
Quiet|Nathaniel is the silent and sane one of his little trio. He speaks rarely and doesn't say much. Having a full conversation with him with longer than one word responses is a treat that only a few are allowed to cherish. To the rest, he comes off as a silent and brooding jock that appears to not have much going on upstairs.
Reserved|Nathaniel prefers to keep to himself and it's part of why he stays so quiet. He stays trapped in his own thoughts and doesn't reveal much on the outside. He let's the world think what they want since it only matters that he knows his own truth.
Intelligent|No one realizes that Nathaniel is a genius like his father. They can't see past his muscle exterior and his silence doesn't really help much. He's his own little genius in his own little world that is his mind.
Strategic|Nathaniel always has a million different plans and knows exactly how to execute them. His group doesn't really let him pitch in often but when he does, his plans go gloriously. Until Junior ruins everything with his unpredictability...
Caring|He's a very caring man and no where near as evil as Junior and Enzo. He's only a villain by default but has the heart of a hero when it comes to keeping the people he cares about safe.

|History|
Nathaniel was the result of a one night stand between Bane and a young woman by the name of Natalie. The two had a bit of a relationship before that never stemmed further than fooling around beneath the sheets. Natalie told Bane she was pregnant and didn't want a child but Bane was persistent on her carrying his son. He even went so far as to hire goons to make sure she wouldn't try to get rid of his baby. 9 months later, Nathaniel was brought into this world.

He was born different from the other due to Bane having been on venom during this point. There was so much venom in Bane's system that it managed to transfer over to Nathaniel and pump through his blood system granting him his many abilities he now possesses. Bane had gone off venom after Nathaniel was born in hopes of being a great and sober father.

His mother soon left and Nathaniel spent his time being raised by Bane as his only parental figure. Bane taught him everything he knew until Nathaniel soon surpassed his own father's knowledge and Bane had to find new ways for his child to learn so he would bring in various allies to aid in this. That was when Joker walked into his life...

Bane had a relapse of his venom addiction but little supply to help him. In stepped Joker with exactly what Bane needed but with a price. Bane had to work for Joker now and Nathaniel was tasked with being his sons perfect bodyguard. Bane agreed and allowed his son to be forced into Joker's psychotic family where he was smothered by Harley Quinn like she was his new mother and protective of Junior as if he were hi younger brother.

Nathaniel and Junior soon grew inseparable since Nathaniel really had no choice. He joined him on daring tasks and nearly got himself killed on numerous occasions just to keep his new brother safe. Nathaniel wanted out and he begged his father to let him but he wouldn't budge. He even knocked him down for considering running away. Nathaniel was forced to stay with him and forced to be there when Joker and Junior committed a horrible act to a beautiful young girl and her father.

Not too long after, a heist went wrong and Nathaniel was captured. Junior was sent to Arkham Asylum and Nathaniel went to Arkham Prison. He'd been there for years when an older looking man in a suit came to visit and offered Nathaniel a deal. He could stay out of prison if he attended his school. Nathaniel gladly took the deal only to realize Junior was given the same deal and now he was still stuck with him. to make matters worse, he has to see the same girl every day. Every. Single. Day.



Image
|Penthouse|
Nathaniel's penthouse is just one giant MMA gym complete with an octagon cage that happens to have a bathroom and a kitchen. He uses it strictly for training and utilizes the library and science labs for any other needs. Nathaniel doesn't require much sleep thanks to his abilities and often just takes power naps on the bench press if he's ever tired.

Wren almost swore she saw Christian blush which made her smile slightly as she looked back to Jack who made some stupid comment about saving a bit for the rest of the ladies. Instead of watching the bottle as it spun, she kept her gaze fixed on Jack. His demeanor quickly change from cheerly to worried when it sounded like the bottle came to a stop. She let her gaze drop to the bottle to see where it was pointing. Wren's eyes widened slightly as they followed to where it was pointing... Christian, who didn't look so well as he sat beside her.

She sat frozen in her seat, her gaze shifting back and forth between the conversation the two held. Wren immediately started to feel bad for dragging Christian into this. "Well, uh, guy are you okay?" "I don't know, are you? You look sickly." Then Jack responded more charismatically but it was obviously a facade. "Oh, I'm fine, totally and one-hundred percent A-OK!... So...uh...about that kiss then?" Christian raised his hand and rested it on the bottle. "I'm...I'm not sure if I can go through with this." He then looked around the circle expectantly until his gaze set on Wren, "Well...what should I do?"

Wren held his gaze for a moment as she thought. She then leaned forward resting her hand on top of his that was on the bottle. "It's ok... I'll handle it." She whispered to him, before taking the bottle from his grasp. Wren then moved to her feet and strutted her way over to Jack. Without a single word, she leaned over towards him. With a tug on his shirt, she pulled him towards her, pressing her lips to his for a good moment or two. After she thought she had given a sufficient enough kiss, she stands back up whipping her mouth with the back of her hand.

But she wasn't done there. Wren pivoted on her heels tossing the bottle towards Alex as she made her way back over towards Christian. She then took both of her hands and gently cupped the base of his neck. Wren gave him a brief, reassuring glance, then closed the distance between them, locking her lips with his. This kiss she let linger longer than Jack's, allowing her hand to tangle in his hair as she deepened the kiss. When she felt it was long enough, Wren broke the kiss and stood up right, grinning mischievously. "Spin the bottle telephone..." She shrugged her shoulders.

Wren then looked over at Alex who held the bottle she tossed to her, "You're turn." Looking back towards Christian, she extended her hand out to take his. "Looks like you could use some air..." Without confirmation or another word, she lead him out onto her balcony. Once the door closed, the door closed, the loud noise of the party turned to a dull roar. Wren made her way to the railing, resting her elbows upon it, she leaned back against the railing. "Figured it was safer for you to kiss someone who could live through you biting their face off." She smiled playfully.

"Are you saying โ€˜riddle me thisโ€™ intelligent or high IQ? Or what's intelligent in your eyes?" Caleb said towards Enzo in regards to his comment about finding intelligence attractive. He simply rolled his eyes while stifling a laugh. "Don't quit your day job super boy... Sounding smart is not your area of expertise." Enzo couldn't help but notice Caleb's frown from the comment about everyone flocking to him. Why is that a bad thing? His attention was drawn to Kain who replied, "Whose side are you on? Spoken like a guy who doesn't want a steamy kiss from another person." Enzo shrugged his shoulders. "I'm indifferent... I'm just happy to witness all the fun."

Enzo usually ignored most of what Junior said, but he caught a bit of the conversation. "Is the Red Hood jealous that she didn't get to kiss Bane? He is talented but he has far better taste than a girl with daddy issues." His brows furrowed at the comment. Enzo raised his hand and slapped Junior in the back of the head. "Watch your tongue..." Talking about parents was a fine line to tread on somewhere like this, no matter how insane you are. Plus over half of them had "daddy issues", Enzo included. He then leaned forward to look towards Ichabod as he spoke, "Careful now, Junior. You wouldn't want dear Enzo thinking you're the one who's actually jealous. Who knows who might snatch him up." Enzo couldn't help but grin when seeing Ichabod's smirk.

But Enzo quickly looked back towards the game at hand when he saw Wren do what Wren does... Be the center of attention. After all, it's her part and she can do what she wants. It definitely was an action that'd get the crowd going. Although he wasn't exactly sure why she did it. Did she really care if Christian went all homicidal on Jack? Who would really miss him?

Nathaniel was frozen in place when Frankie scrambled off him, "Sorry." As she sat there embarrassed and adjusting herself, Nathaniel apologized a second time. Although her cheeks were flushing a deep red, she glanced over at him form the corner of her eyes. "It's ok." She offered him a slight smile to try to make him feel more at ease even though he looked as embarrassed as she did.

Junior broke the awkward silence with a typical, rude Junior comment, "Is the Red Hood jealous that she didn't get to kiss Bane? He is talented but he has far better taste than a girl with daddy issues." Frankie felt bad for Alex, although she knew she was more than capable to kick Junior's ass. But that also didn't mean the comment also didn't give her a ting of jealousy.... Especially when she looked over at Bane who seemed to be fuming at the comment. Frankie decided to face forward, twiddling her hands in her lap, trying to ignore the situation. But that wasn't very difficult when Wren decided to take control of an even more awkward situation which made her giggle slightly.

Junior was often one to rub others the wrong way but he hadn't expected so many to get upset so quickly. His dear Enzo had given him a smack on the back of his head for what he said which only made Junior let out a Joker snicker when others joined in. Though Ichabod piping in was not something that would sit well. "Careful now, Junior. You wouldn't want dear Enzo thinking you're the one who's actually jealous. Who knows who might snatch him up." The smirk upon Ichabod and Enzo leaning in the give that freakish man a grin had Junior very much upset and he clearly showed it but for once, Junior felt silent. He allowed his anger and jealousy to be visible but he knew better than to cross a man who could cause more fear than Junior. Instead he sat back and laughed over Wren's antics and leaned in when the bottle had been handed off to Alex.

Freddie had still been in the outskirts of the room having a brief conversation with Kaina the stranger. "Who says I don't know her?" Freddie shrugged at her comment. Freddie didn't really know either of them though he was being a tad bit nicer and ore social than usual with this girl. Well as far as social goes with Freddie. Kaina had jumped down from the pool table while Freddie had another drink of his water and she gave him a smile to which Freddie returned with a smirk. "Wasn't staring at her by the way, I think admiring fits better, sounds less creepy." This actually made Freddie laugh a bit as he watched her leave to join the game. "Go get 'em tiger." Freddie did not join though. He stayed where he was and watched the game from afar like he had been doing before.

Tensions had been high and Alex was still notably upset though Wren taking the attention of of her and Nathaniel managed to relax her enough. Though she hadn't expected Wren to hand the bottle off to her now. "You're turn." Alex took hold of the bottle as her heart began to raise. She closed her eyes and spun the bottle praying it'd land on someone tolerable or someone who had been stealing her glances since she arrived. When they opened and she saw who it landed on, her heart sank and her cheeks flushed. Nathaniel Bane. Of course. Junior was going to enjoy this too much. Alex turned to Nathaniel next to her and slowly leaned in with her eyes closed lessening to space between them until their lips finally touched and Junior began to laugh ever too loudly.

Image"Well aren't we learning something new about you! I guess I should warn all of the others. Don't want space crabs getting much further than you and him."
Astrid nodded along, poorly biting back a grin. โ€œWe probably should get the warning out there but I like to believe Jack treats the women...I mean, er, treated me, really well. I have...โ€ She parted her thumb and index finger in measurement. โ€œAt least that much faith in his regard towards sexual encounters.โ€ He liked women but he wasn't a bad guy. And could probably use a little more people in his corner with the whole space std jokes.

Astrid's smile grew as Julia assured it was all fine and just a game. Not long after such words did Caleb join them. "Who's not okay?" He inquired, obviously coming from overheard spics and specks of the conversation. She accepted her shot from him then looked to Julia for her provided answer. Since everything was fine and a game, it wouldnโ€™t be a big deal after all. "Ah. Plus one for me then." He replied to a double take he had to do towards Julia.
A certain tension Julia was in apparent denial about was present, causing a grin to spread across her features. Even when she called that bluff beforehand it became more forefront with Caleb standing by them. โ€œThank god this isnโ€™t awkward.โ€ She muttered behind the safety of the glass, looking between the two.

"You'll be pleased to know the only thing anyone will have to fear today is possibility." Ichabod told her. Which still had reason for elements of skepticism, but she felt assured enough in it.

Image In the typical Jai fashion he responded with, "It was very shocking." She laughed and shook her head at the terrible pun. At least he was himself and good as new. "Though i'm still waiting for my reward for saving your life and all." He added. Lilith smirked, glancing to his lips, caught by pleasant surprise. โ€œReally?โ€ She edged closer to them in sweet temptation. โ€œWell, I guess you can wait some more then.โ€ Her fingertips traced his jawline delicately as Lilith's features turned more smug and playful than they already were. She dropped her hand, glancing into his eyes. Then was compelled to add, โ€œI'm charmed though.โ€ She whispered the words in his ear so he knew he was playing some good cards.

She leaned back on her hands as Alex took the bottle. Lilith had a feeling the spin could only go two ways for the feisty red head. Either really good or really bad. And the likes of Jai would probably want to bear witness or see how luck treated him on this spin. It landed on Nathaniel and they kissed while Junior laughed. Lilith narrowed her eyes in intrigue. She got that it was Alex and he had just passed a jealousy comment before but it was also Nathaniel. Most known for the muscle power he served to the Junior and Enzo, and should he really be laughing at him too? Should he really test the tolerance and loyalty of Bane? But then again Junior always did find a way to belittle folks and get away with it. Plus the bonus of getting what he wanted. To a degree she was envious.

Lilith risked a glance to Jai, searching for his reaction.

Nathaniel had been silent for quite some time as he normally was though the silence between him and Frankie had actually made him uncomfortable enough to move his body only slightly. It seemed Nathaniel only really knew how to act like a statue at this point as he quickly ignored everything around him diving into his own thoughts and processing how he was even supposed to make things right. Talking to girls was far more complicated than calculating limits. At least some of those didn't exist unlike the existence of the public fool Nathaniel made himself look like for letting his own form of jealousy get the best of him for a moment. Only a brief moment of course but it was brief enough to create an annoyingly awkward silence between him and Frankie. Though Nathaniel being more preoccupied in his thoughts of women not to even notice the game of spin the bottle progressing or the fact that the feisty red head next him had spun and landed on him.

It'd taken him several moments to process what had just happened and the fact that Alex had turned to face him. Of course after everything that unfolded earlier this would happen. Of course. She leaned towards him and Nathaniel flushed as he did the same and closed the distance between them with a kiss. It probably lasted far longer than was needed. Nathaniel stayed there as his eyes finally closed and he managed to relax himself just a bit. The kiss was a bit odd but also kind of nice. Her lips were surprisingly soft but he still wasn't sure what to think. Maybe he was just over thinking it. They finally pulled away from each other and Natahniel looked flushed and flustered all over again as he shifted away coming to the realization he may have hurt Frankie during the process of his steamy lip lock with Alex. He immediately felt guilty for enjoying it a bit. Nathaniel was royally screwed.

Wren raised a brow as she heard Christian grown before speaking, "Why did you do that? Huh, why did you have to go and make some show out of it?" The comment came out with a bite and before she could justify anything he kept going. "Sometimes I wonder if you really do care about anyone else but yourself? Sure you have the power to survive, to laugh at death straight in the face, but that doesn't give you the right to be so....reckless! You know, what if I did decide to bite your face off huh!? What then!? How many more faces would I have bitten off before I was stopped!? Huh? What then!? And I wanted to...so badly that I craved it!!" He shouted at her.

Wren stood their silently staring straight ahead. She swallowed hard while clenching her jaw. Is that really how everyone saw her? A self centered attention whore? She inhaled sharply before turning the tables back on him. "You asked for my help, or do you not remember that? I was trying to make people see that you aren't the monster they and YOU think! And so what if you bit my face off!?" She threw out her arms, shrugging her shoulders. "I'd survive Christian... And I told you that I'd take care of it if he came out. It was just a kiss... If I knew I'd get torn a new asshole about it I wouldn't have done it." Wren was about to finish her own rant, but then held up her index finger to add. "And as I matter of fact I do care about more people than myself..." She was tempted to be the selfish prick people thought she was. She was just trying to lighten the mood at her party and now he was jumping down her throat.

She was about to leave him out on her balcony and rejoin the party until he started speaking again. "I....I.......I hate living like this. I hate feeling like a living time bomb just waiting to go off. I hate it so much...I just wish it would end. Hell, I would throw myself off the side of this building right now. I would stand up and literally jump over this railing if I thought it would work." Wren turned her head to look at him slightly. One part of her wanted to slap him for even considering suicide and another part wanted to just... hug him. "But I know it wouldn't...I would survive again and again. Do you know about the monk who burned himself alive?"

She did a double take almost like whiplash at the randomness of the comment. "No... I don't really associate with Monks."

"I was watching a documentary about Vietnam and the war. During it they talked about this Buddhist Monk who sat in the middle of a busy street and set himself on fire in protest to their Government. Can you imagine the courage it would take, to do something like that? To take your life not for yourself but for something bigger than yourself? It's called immolation and it inspired me to do the same...though it wasn't for something so noble. I couldn't get a hold of gasoline but I did however, grab as much bottles of booze I could find. I took the bottles to my room and I doused myself, I was drenched from head to toe when I finished. Then I took a match and lit it. J.A.R.V.I.S. noticed what I was doing and knew where I was going with this. He sounded an alert but it would've came to late...I was ready to drop that match...but then..."

Christian sat down, leaning back against the wall. He was practically shaking. Wren stood there frozen and conflicted. She was a stubborn person that she was still furious that he unloaded on her about something so small. It hurt her to be yelled at for because she kissed him. She knew it was selfish to still hold onto that after hearing what he said. She also just wanted to comfort him. But she worried he'd lash out at her again if she even tried to touch him.

"...Then...then...HE, happened. I've been taking my medicine, a lot of it, and I thought I had him! Then like a goddamn puppet, he took control of my body, threw the match away and forced me into the shower!" She could the tears forming as he continued. "Then came in Security and they removed everything flammable from my room!! I could've died, I SHOULD'VE DIED!! It would've been over, OVER!!! But I don't think it'll ever be over...what hope is there? I can't even commit FUCKING SUICIDE!!!" He shouted up at the sky. Wren didn't even spare a glance towards the party. The music was loud so she doubted anyone heard it. She didn't worry for herself but for Christian. It took a lot in someone to unload all those feelings like that.

When Christian looked over at her, Wren's own gaze was already locked on his. He sighed. "I'm sorry...it's a party...go ahead and go back to it if you want...I'm...just gonna sit here for awhile."

As much as she wanted to still be mad at him, when he wiped his tears away her heart melted. Wren sighed as she moved over next to him. "Eh... I part too much anyways." She slid down the wall until she was sitting beside him. She rested her head back against the cold concrete allowing her gaze to drift up to the sky. "You know... I'd put money on the fact that 9 out of 10 of the people in there had wanted to commit suicide at some point." She blew air out between her lips. "It's hard... Being like us. Our lives aren't... Ours. There's always someone or something threatening to kill us, those we love or the world and somehow it's always our job to deal with it."

She twiddled her fingers in her lap. "I always used to laugh at the whole 'With great power comes great responsibility.'... But it's true. And it's hard. Harder for some of us more than others." She lightly nudged him with her arm so he knew she was talking about him. "It takes a strong person to deal with something like that... There's like a giant 'trial' period where we all have to become comfortable in our skin and accept ourselves. It gets harder before it gets easier."

Wren sighed. She was never very good at the whole pep talk thing but she was trying. "Like me..." She motioned towards herself. "I am 58 years old and it's nearly impossible for me to die." She let her gaze drift over towards Christian. "I am going to outlive everyone I've ever cared about. I get to stand idly by and watch them grow old, frail and weak as I forever stay like this... And I don't care how romanticized and amazing books make it sound. I'd give anything to be mortal. Life isn't as precious to me as it is to other people. That's why I am reckless and stupid..." She shrugged her shoulders.

After a long moment of silence, she reached out to take his hand in hers and rested them in her lap. Her gaze fixed upon them, slightly worried to look over at him and get another scolding because she broke his personal boundary bubble. "It's better to face anything with friends... rather than alone."

Frankie sat there silent and patient as she watched Wren play kissing telephone with Jack and Christian, then tug the freckled boy outside on the balcony. Her attention shifted to Alex who received the bottle as a pass off from Wren. She giggled softly as the red head didn't seem all too thrilled with the idea of it being her turn. She leaned forward slightly, curious to see who the bottle would land on. But as it began to slow down, Frankie's body started to tense as it came to a stop before... Nathaniel.

A soft gasp escaped her lips as Frankie couldn't fight her gaze from looking over at the large male beside her. Was he... Blushing? She wanted to look away but for some reason she wasn't able to. Frankie's mind tried to rationalize it. I kissed Jack and it meant nothing so that's fine.... Just give it a second and he'll pull away and look disgusted. But that didn't happened. Instead the kiss carried on. As she saw Nathaniel's eyes close and get into the kiss she couldn't watch anymore. Her gaze shifted down to her hands as she anxiously twiddled her fingers.

Frankie couldn't look towards him when she knew the kiss was over. She wanted to get up and leave at that moment but she also didn't want to cause a scene. Thankfully before she had to sit there and stomach watching him kiss someone else the music went abruptly silent and all of the house lights came back up. J.A.R.V.I.S.'s voice then came over the intercom, "Apologies for the interruption. But it is 10 minutes until curfew. Mr. Coulson and Mr. Pennyworth have ordered the conclusion of the party and that you all return to your own rooms at this time. Thank you."

Frankie sighed out in relief. Perfect timing. She wasted no time in getting to her feet. She walked right through the center of the circle, stepping over the bottle. It hadn't been more than 30 seconds since the announcement and she was out the door, into the hallway. Once she was alone for a brief second, she stopped in her tracks letting out a soft sigh while rubbing her head. After taking the moment or two to compose herself she then continued towards the elevator and pressed the button. Unfortunately for her it wasn't already at that floor so she anxiously tapped her foot as she waited for it to ascend to her level.

Semi Formal


Enzo was just feeding off of the drama and jealousy from the room. Wren kissed Jack then Christian... And he could have sworn at one point he heard the guy yelling at the feisty red head out on the balcony. Then Alex lands on Nathaniel which he could only assume would make Frankie upset. Obviously there was some unspoken crushing going on between the silent brute and spider girl, but the jealousy was always fun to witness.

Then J.A.R.V.I.S. came over the intercom like a total and complete buzz kill. He should get an award for party pooper of the year if Enzo had any say on the matter. He looked over towards Junior who seemed visibly upset at the slight interchange Enzo had with Ichabod which only made him chuckle. He enjoyed seeing him get a little taste of his own medicine.

Instead of waiting around for him, Enzo decided to get up and head to his room. He wasn't in quite the hurry that Frankie was though. He reached the hall to see her waiting for the elevator. He wasn't in the mood to play therapist so instead of going over and waiting for it as well, he took the stairs down to his floor.

The kiss lasted far longer than Alex had anticipated. She wasn't entirely sure what she was supposed to do at this point. Anyone else she probably would have struck across the face right now but she couldn't do that to Nathaniel. The kiss was a bit odd. Kind of like having to kiss a family member on the holidays and she assumed it'd be over by now. It finally dragged on long enough to where Alex decided to push him back. "Slow down there tiger. You're cute but I prefer the kind with boobs." She teased him with a laugh and slap on the arm while Junior seemed to just be having a blast with the whole thing. "Well this has turned into quite the party..." Junior grinned while Alex rolled her eyes at him just as the music came to a halt and J.A.R.V.I.S came over the intercom.

"Apologies for the interruption. But it is 10 minutes until curfew. Mr. Coulson and Mr. Pennyworth have ordered the conclusion of the party and that you all return to your own rooms at this time. Thank you." Enzo had left rather quickly before Junior had the chance to say anything towards him. Junior scoffed and stood up. He wasn't going to chase after him and neither was he going to waste the energy going down the stairs. Instead he left the room and went to the elevator where the first person he noticed was a very upset Frankie. Junior smirked and tapped her shoulder. "Green is more my color than yours." He chuckled a bit as he leaned over her. "Though it's not Alex's color either. Maybe that's what Bane sees in both of you." He was poking the bear and loving it.

Freddie was quick to leave the room much like Frankie and a few other guests while Alex stayed behind and stopped Nathaniel before he had the chance to leave. "Hey there, pillow lips." Her hand was on his arm as she teased him. "Bruce is going to kill me if I don't get a date to the dance and you're one of the few people I don't completely hate. So I want you to go with me." She waited for his response before adding another teasing remark. "Let's keep the lip locking to a minimum though." She winked at him and spun around to leave the room and head to hers.

Freddie made it to the elevator where he saw Junior harassing Frankie. Freddie came over and put a hand on his should and pulled him back. Junior laughed. "Relax, Sergeant. We were just having a friendly conversation." Freddie rolled his eyes and ignored him as he positioned himself to block Junior from coming back over. He saw Frankie was upset and decided to make light of the situation. "So Stark said that I'd be expelled on my first day if I didn't snag a date to the dance and you get to be the luckiest girl here and go with me." He didn't really smile but sort of smirked as he spoke to her in his arrogant asshole fashion while Junior covered his mouth and let out a gasp. "Oh my.... This night is full of illogical ships."

Juniors laugh made the invisible vein on the side of Kaina's head twitch as she closed her eyes for a second in order to hide a much exaggerated eye roll that she held in ever since Alex and Nathaniel began their kiss. It was an odd feeling at the pit of her stomach but she ignored it and blamed it on the alcohol as she leaned into Petra. "I swear if I have to keep hearing his laugh whenever I'm around him I'm going to start wearing my earphones." she whispered while actually rolling her eyes a bit, not being able to help it any longer. "Looks like someone isn't having a good time." joined in Eazazil as he smirked towards his twin and Petra tapping his left ear. Kaina almost forgot that her brother had his senses enhanced which also included his hearing. Eazazil greeted Petra with a kiss on the cheek before coming around and placing his hands on his sisters shoulders. "Sorry Maxi but I have to barrow my dear sister here." he smiled tightly at her trying to use that as a signal of sorts as his hands lightly squeezed Kaina's shoulder and she already knew what was going down.

Her somewhat relaxed body quickly tensed and her eyes instantly grew cold and distant. She gave Petra a kiss on other cheek and bid her goodnight before Kaina stood up in the middle of Nathaniel's and Alex's kiss and walked off with her brother. The two entered the elevator and when they did that's when Eazazil pulled out the small piece of paper from his pocket that was neatly cut into a square and folded. "She want's us to track down and kill Titus Lavoie. An assassin who went rouge after murdering his mentor . . ." he trailed off looking over to his sister who began reading the Arabic scribbled on the paper. "One of Nyssa's best henchmen." he looked forward again when the elevator gave out a ding signaling that they were at Kaina's room.

After confirming what his brother said was true not that she doubted him Kaina stalked off into her space and headed straight towards the kitchen where she grabbed a lighter from the drawer and lit the little note on fire then tossed it into the sink. As the paper burned Kaina and Eazazil walked into the small training area Kaina had in her place and opened a metal like closet revealing their work clothes. The twins got dressed rather quickly and when they were finished Eazazil walked back over to the kitchen, turning on the sink and letting the charred remains of the note flow down the drain. After he gave a nod towards his sister Kaina sheathed her sword with a satisfying sound and made her way back to the elevator with her brother in tow.

As they waited for the elevator to hit ground floor Eazazil deiced to strike up a brief conversation. "Soo, how was the party? Anything juicy I missed?" Kaina gave a smirk and rested her hand on top of her katana's handle. "Well as you saw they were playing spin the bottle." Eazazil gave his sister a rather surprised look. "You were playing spin the bottle?" he sounded as if he couldn't believe what he was hearing. "THEY, were playing spin the bottle." she lied, somewhat. Kaina did spend more time observing the game or rather a certain red head than playing herself so she didn't really count that as playing. "Mhm." Aza casually said with a sly smile on his face as he looked forward, the doors finally opening.

As soon as they stepped out into the Lobby J.A.R.V.I.S came over the intercom announcing the curfew and that's when the lady at the front desk locked eyes on the twins. Kaina looked back with her regular emotionless stare but Eazazil smiled towards her as he walked up to the desk. "We are expected back home tonight." Aza paused for a second as he smile towards the desk lady. "Our father, Bruce Wayne gave us the okay and told us that everything would be taken care of down here." The red head at the desk visibly became nervous when Aza announced that they were Bruce's kids. She typed away at her computer all while Eazazil worked on his phone away from the woman's view. He had actually gotten so good at hacking in the last two years that he hacked his father's email and sent an email to the front desk giving her the okay to let them leave.

As soon as the lady at the front desk received the email Aza deleted all traces sent from his fathers email to begin with so he wouldn't know before turning his attention back to the front desk. In a bit of disbelief the woman nodded at them. "Alright it looks like you guys have the okay, have a nice night and see you again tomorrow." with a charming smile from Aza he thanked her and the two walked out the front doors where two men in the signature league outfits appeared from out of nowhere. "Waritha" they both greeted while bowed on one knee. With a wave of her hand Kaina dismissed them then wrapped the crimson around her like a mask before pulling it over and creating a hood. Eazazil pulled on his mask but whispered something all to familiar to Kaina's ears. "Alwahdat hi alquww" he said and Kaina simply responded back with the same "Alwahdat hi alquww" which in Arabic meant Unity is power. Something they have been saying to each other since they were young and adapted to saying before missions.

Frankie cupped her hands together while rocking back and forth onto her heels. She usually was patient but at that particular moment she wished more than anything that the damned elevator would arrive before someone showed up. If she had her webshooters she could just jump out the window or something else stupid and reckless like half of the others. But generally when going to a party that doesn't cross one's mind. She started chewing on her bottom lip but only for a moment before huffing softly when she heard feet approaching.

"Hiya Frank." Matt said as he came into view beside her, giving her a half smile. "Do you mind if..." He motioned towards the doors.

Frankie's rising tension disipated with a soft smile when she saw it was someone who wouldn't set her teeth on edge. "Oh hey Matty." She brushed her hair behind her ears before nodding. "Yeah of course... As long as we don't talk about the party." She gave a weak laugh and an exasperated smile.

Her attention was then drawn towards Elizabeth who joined them as they waited for the terribly slow elevator. "Weird party, huh?"

Frankie gave an awkward laugh while rubbing the back of her neck. Before she got a chance to reply another person joined the group. "Green is more my color than yours." Her brows furrowed as she crossed her arms over her chest. Junior then leaned over her but Frankie stood her ground not giving an inch while staring straight back up at him. "Though it's not Alex's color either. Maybe that's what Bane sees in both of you."

She'd be lying if she said she wasn't jealous of the kiss shared between the two. It was obvious and even psycho pants over here noticed it but Frankie couldn't fight her urge to defend herself, Nathaniel and even Alex. "Yeah? And red isn't your color... But I still have an urge to see you covered in blood." Her hands moved to rest on her hips as she took a step towards him so her chest nearly pressed to his. "And his name is Nathaniel."

She wanted to smack his crooked little face all down the hallway. It took a lot to get her mad, she usually was as much of a threat as a bunny rabbit, but Junior knew how to press someone's buttons and Frankie was fuming. She was contemplating saying something else, maybe even surprising half the world and slapping the grin off his face but a hand appeared on Junior's shoulder and pulled him back. "Relax, Sergeant. We were just having a friendly conversation."

Freddie moved in front of Frankie separating her from Junior. "Hey!" She jumped to try and look over his shoulder at the Joker who was probably enjoying this way too much. "I was about to kick some major Psychopath ass." She pouted slightly. Was that the truth? Probably not but she felt like she was on a roll.

"So Stark said that I'd be expelled on my first day if I didn't snag a date to the dance and you get to be the luckiest girl here and go with me." Freddie's... order? took Frankie by enough surprise that when she was about to rant some more about kicking Junior's ass she froze her mouth agape just staring up at Freddie. They had been friends for longer than she could count so of course he came and asked her because it took no effort on his part.

Before she had a chance to reply Junior had to pipe up once again, "Oh my.... This night is full of illogical ships."

"That's it!" Frankie jumped, reaching her arms over Freddie's shoulders as she tried to grab for Junior. "I'm going to strangle you with a balloon animal!"

Saved by the bell... Or ding of a slow elevator. Probably J.A.R.V.I.S.'s idea of a joke. Frankie grunted angrily as she entered the elevator, then held it open for everyone... Well everyone except Junior. She put out her hand to stop him before furiously clicking the "close doors" button. "Take a hike before I actually try to kill you." Sure she was mad but she didn't actually try to inflict serious damage. If she did, well it would have happened. Even though she wasn't as strong as her father she was still stronger than any human and contrary to popular belief, Junior was just an insane human like his father.

Frankie glared at Junior as the doors closed separating them. She let out a soft sigh and remained silent in the elevator. She wasn't in the mood to deal with anyone at that point. So once it opened on her floor she mumbled a soft, "Good night." To whomever was on the elevator with her before disappearing down the hall and into her room for the night.

Wren was surprised Christian didn't just about hurl himself over the balcony when she sat down beside him. She wasn't trying to scare him away or instigate the symbiote but just... Be there. "I can imagine...I understand the want to die, the desire for an end. I wouldn't want to last forever...not like this, it would be the ultimate nightmare."

She nodded her head while pursing her lips slightly. "Yeah..." Wren hated the whole "indestructible" part of her life she inherited from her dad. Of course it is, theoretically possible for her to die.... Maybe. But as far as her and her father knew, there wasn't anything yet. So she was stuck to live and keep on living past everyone. That's one thing no one realized about her, why she annoyed everyone. Part of it was just Wren being Wren but another part was to keep others away. It's easier being immortal when you don't have anyone close to you to watch wither away.

When she took his hand, Christian actually looked over at her and smiled, which Wren in return couldn't help but smile back. "If it's any consolation...I am sorry for what I said. When I feel something in the moment I just follow it through. Then sometimes I think I feel certain way but then it ends up being different. These feelings usually start out as something small...then they get bigger, and alot of it is......influenced......But I try to be in control of myself, it just isn't always easy. But...thank you, very much...for everything."

Wren smiled, giving his hand a squeeze and even nudging his shoulder with her own in a playful way. "I'm sorry I made a show of everything... And don't understand the concept of personal boundaries at all..." Her free hand scratched her head as she laughed awkwardly. "... And kissed you..."

As the balcony door opened, Wren quickly withdrew her hand from Christian's like she was caught in the middle of something she shouldn't have been. She cupped her hands together and cleared her throat as Kallistrate stepped out onto the terrace with them. She dug out a hershey's kiss for Christian before speaking, "She's right you know. Friends are crucial, especially doing what we do... Enjoy the chocolate. And if you ever find you have a hankering, I always have some." She smiled towards them both which Wren returned with a slight wave of the hand. "Enjoy your evening." With that Kallistrate went over the edge.

Wren was about to say something most likely sarcastic to lighten the mood but was interrupted by someone else joining them. "Oh, sorry! Night, guys, it was a great night." Mathias gave them a wave before jumping over the edge as well.

"I guess the party's over." Wren looked over at Christian laughing slightly.

Next Kari and Kumiko were at the balcony. At this point Wren was slightly rubbing her temples half covering her face. She wasn't embarrassed to be seen with Christian or anything like but more of the mess she made earlier and the whispers she probably dragged him into unintentionally.

"You are missing some interesting stuff inside." Kari said before climbing up onto the railing. "Great party Wren, as always. Good night guys."

Wren just watched as she too went over the edge. After a moment or two she looked over at Christian with a confused scrunched up face. "Does no one take the stairs anymore?" She then stood up and walked over to the railing, resting her hands upon it before looking over. "I mean damn... I could jump over the edge too but then they'd be cleaning pieces of me up for weeks." She pivoted around to lean back against the railing to look over at Christian. "And a fall like that?" Wren motioned over her shoulders. "I'd be sore for days."

With a sigh, Wren walked over towards him, giving his foot a light nudge. "Thanks for coming to my shit storm of a party." She laughed before offering him a hand. "I'm sure after what I put you through that guy could use some rest."

Wren showed everyone who remained in her penthouse out of the party before J.A.R.V.I.S. got his circuits in a twist. Once everyone was out she groaned seeing how messy her place was. The one down side of being a party monster was the after party, a.k.a. clean up. Considering it was rarer than a hillbilly in wallstreet for Wren to actually be tired enough for sleep, she cracked her knuckles. "Let's get down to business." She then did a couple karate moves in the air while singing, "TO DEFEAT THE HUNS!!" Wren laughed at her own joke, dabbing at the fake tears. "Right? Right?" She looked around and her grin quickly faded. "Oh... Right, I'm alone."





The Next Morning...




Wren spent a majority of the night cleaning up the mess left from the party. With as much as she hated the clean up you'd think she'd stop throwing parties, but that was never the case. By 4 a.m. she was finished. Contemplating what do for the remainder of the evening she made her way over to her book shelf and started fingering through its contents. She knew every book on the shelves and read them all at least 10 times through. All the books had cracked spines, loose pages and looked like they were over a century old. But Wren refused to replace them because the wear just showed her love for them.

While fingering over the spines trying to find the night's winner she stopped upon a peculiar title. She grinned to herself as she tore it from the shelf and made her way over to her desk. Wren dug through her drawers until she found a piece of paper, a pen and... An empty red gift bag? "What the-?" She held the bag while looking up, "Well played 'oh majestic author'... Well played."

After scribbling a message in her almost illegible handwriting, Wren put the note under the cover of the book then shoved the book into the bag. She then headed out of her penthouse and down to Christian's. She wasn't going to knock or anything. Wren wasn't wanting to bug him but wanted to make up for half dragging him to a party he didn't want to go to in the first place.

She stopped outside his door and set the bag on the ground. Inside... a very worn copy of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and inside a note that read... "Can I call you Dr. Jekyll?" Signed, "That annoying red head who doesn't understand personal boundaries." Wren was never very good at apologies. She hoped that this would get a chuckle out of him and not make him hate her more. But this was just how she was.

After leaving the shitty idea of an apology in front of his door, Wren decided not to go back to her penthouse. Instead she made her way down to one of the simulation rooms and decided to train, work out or whatever else she could do to make the time pass.

Frankie was up before the sun was. She honestly didn't know if she ever actually fell asleep or more of tossed and turned in her bed. She didn't know why the events of the prior evening were getting to her so much. But finally she couldn't handle it anymore and got out of bed.

For months she had been working on an equation to figure out the exact last moment she could release her webbing to save herself from a fall. Her father didn't approve of this, with good reason. He thought that experimenting with something like this could end badly for her if she miscalculated. But Frankie was determined to find the solution thinking it could help her, her father and Anansi in sticky situations.

Finally, Frankie thought she found the answer and programed her watch with the equation so that it would use her altitude, acceleration, velocity and gravitational pull to give her a to the millisecond count down of how long she had to deploy the web. This included the time it takes for the webbing to release from the shooters, fly through the air and grip onto a surface above her. But like any good equation it wasn't good until proven accurate with an experiment... And Frankie has always been a little more reckless than her father.

Frankie found her way to the top of the Descendant Tower. She methodically checked her watch while bouncing back and forth on her feet while shaking her hands. "You got this!" She checked her pulse while jogging in place. "It's just like any other jump." She continued taking deep breaths trying not to psych herself out. "Oh for heaven's sake!" Without anymore hesitation she sprinted towards the edge and dove off.

She brought her wrist before her as she fell. Her gaze continuously shifting between the watch and the quickly approaching ground. The digital read out showing... 10... 9... 8... 7...

Enzo slept well past what was probably acceptable and he didn't care. Well that was until J.A.R.V.I.S. decided to make an alarmingly annoying announcement at 10:30 a.m. which Enzo deemed way too early for such disturbances.

"Good morning ladies and gentlemen. Mr. Stark and Mr. Wayne wanted me to inform you that you all were given a day of leisure in preparation for the anniversary ball tomorrow evening. You are permitted to travel to town, train or do whatever it is that you all do with your free time. They also wanted me to notify you all that every student, even those who missed the simulation or failed are allowed to attend the dance. Those who previously were not permitted to go will simply be on clean up duty when the festivities have concluded. Enjoy your free day."

Maybe it was the mention of a free day that made Enzo get out of bed or the simple fact that the annoying program already disrupted him beyond fixing. Either way he was in no mood to even get dressed at the time being. He simply walked out of his apartment in just his pajama pants, no shoes or shirt and made his way to the elevator. Once he was on it, he pressed the button for the mess hall level before yawning and slipping his hands in his pockets.

When he arrived in the cafeteria area, Enzo walked towards the buffet still yawning and scratching his bare muscular abdomen. "Any new sad excuses for food?" He looked towards the woman who worked the food counter. She seemed unfazed and emotionless like a statue. No doubt she was more than used to statements like that from Enzo. Sure he could cook his own food in his room but that took effort, so instead he came down here and bitched to the people who dealt with shit heads like him on a regular basis.

"Yeah... Arsenic." She said with a monotonic voice before handing him a plate of his usual breakfast of an omelette and bacon.

"Delicious." Enzo scoffed before grabbing an orange juice and making his way to a table. He probably would have died laughing if there was actual arsenic in his food. They all were too valuable to throw away by poisoning them... Even if they were dicks.

The morning started just like any another for the illustrious Scarecrow Jr. as he sat in mad scientist lab mixing away at chemicals of every color imaginable. Everything had to be absolutely perfect. Ichabold couldn't dare ruined what he'd spent months working on since he first arrived. No scientist wanted an error for an experiment so precious. "Just one more drop..." No hands could ever move as still as the son of Crane's as he held the droplet ever so carefully over his yellow substance and added the finally drop to his creation. It took centuries to fall down with a crash to end a symphony just as the concoction boiled and bubbled before let out the most musical shriek turning his creation from a mustard yellow to the most luxurious royal purple he had ever seen.

If the man who made fear quiver had any ounce of emotion left in his body... It was all poured into the maniacal grin that grew upon the dread doctor's face as he caressed his creation. He never wanted to leave it. He wanted to hold it close and sing it to sleep at night but he needed to store it away. Something that important needed to be protected. He stored it away in his specially crafted incubator surrounded by others like it. Except this one wasn't like the others. This one was special. A special creation for a special time...


J.A.R.V.I.S came barreling through the speakers causing the Scarlett Speedster to jump up like the lightning the blurred around him when he ran. For the fastest man alive, he was positively dreadful at ever waking up on time. Though considering the amount of calories he burned in one day, sleep was most definitely a necessity. The announcement of a free day did seem to settle mini Flash's heart only for a second as the sudden realization of tomorrows dance hit him like a lightning bolt. Too much? Jai zipped around his rooms sending anything near by flying around turning his freshly cleaned room into a mess once again as he threw on his signature look of a white t shirt, shorts, specially fabricated Impulse hoodie, proper trainers, and his ever so famous Flash ring. In seconds, Jai was racing down the halls not entirely sure of his destination zipping around trying to find her.

Last night had been quite the story. Bottles being thrown, someone on the verge of possibly being pummeled, his best friend kissing the last person Jai would ever pair her with. The Red Streak missed his opportunity of quickness when the events had been cut short and he didn't even get to fulfill his wish. Well that was until it showed up just before him in it's perfected glory like a statue of Aphrodite crafted from the finest jewels taking Jai's breathe away... Along with giving Jai the sudden realization that he was getting far too close far too fast. Jai pumped the emergency breaks causing his trainers to screech against the floor like a siren until Jai finally fell over and continued to slide until physics finally decided to kick in and land him in front of his Aphrodite. Jai embarrassingly grinned up at her with his steaming shoes. "Hey Lilith..." He finally took into account her less than favorable company. "And others." Jai sure did know how to make an entrance...


Nathaniel didn't sleep after the events of the night before. Everything that happened kept him to the point of finally caving and doing what he knew how to do best in the eyes of everyone within the school... Work out. Nathaniel went at it for hours upon hours with music blaring through his gym of a room. Frankie kissed Jack... The weights came crashing onto the ground nearly puncturing a whole again. Junior accused Alex of like Nathaniel... The hulk of a man moved onto a bag. Nathaniel kissed Alex... Punch. Alex asked Nathaniel to the dance... Kick. He said yes... What did it all mean? Did Alex really see him that way? No, they were just friends. Was Nathaniel jealous of Jack and Frankie? Not that he would admit. Was Nathaniel supposed to say no? Another punch and the bag came unhooked from it's chain barreling back into the wall and spilling sand everywhere again.

A deep Hispanic sigh finally came out of the giant as he looked over the mess deciding to deal with it later. He looked down at his white tank that clunked transparently to his solid body from all the sweat. He came over to the window and threw it wide open in order to clear out the steam that filled the room. He enjoyed the scenery for just a moment when a blur came quite literally crashing into Mr. Muscles like a mosquito hitting a wall. Nathaniel was big and strong but he wasn't indestructible and that mosquito felt more like a truck hitting his torso. Nathaniel only stepped back at first until physics decided it was time for him to come crashing to the ground. "Ow. He couldn't sound any more apathetic.

Julia didn't wait long for a reply as her phone buzzed along her coffee table, she quickly snatched it from the table to catch the notification bar indicating it was from Kari, she breathed a sigh of relief when Kari agreed to go dress shopping with her.
{To: Kari}
{Thank you so much! Whenever you want to :3 I'm ready whenever :) x}


She placed the phone back on the coffee table and went back to swiping through a gallery of dresses on her tablet, before her phone buzzed again, assuming it was Kari, Julia didn't rush to see the notification bar but when the bar came up she quickly glanced to see it was Astrid, her eyebrows knotted in confusion at her mission statement but she simply shrugged her shoulders and replied.
{To: Astrid}

Julia set her tablet down and grabbed her clutch purse, dropping her phone into it before she proceeded to exit her apartment and made her way for the lifts, she'd need to eat something if she was going to spend the whole day running from shop to shop looking at and reconsidering dresses. The lift was fairly quick today, maybe the announcement of a free day included the staff too, either way Julia didn't squander the once in a lift time speed of the lift. She briskly made her way to the canteen, she smiled at the woman behind the serving bar but she was most certainly in no mood for pleasantries, not that that was any different from any other day. Julia just lifted a fruit salad and small pot of Greek yoghurt, before heading for the tables, she glanced out over the 3 situations.

There was Theodore, sitting on his own, Julia was quite tempted to sit with him, she didn't like the idea of people sitting on their own, but he was someone she'd grown to assume liked his own company; another table held trouble, and no doubt that's exactly what was being planned, so she'd definitely not be sitting with them, the loud arrival of Jai also seemed to make them the table to sit at if you wanted to gawked at; then there was Kari and Kumiko heading towards the bins, so Julia assumed they were leaving already, so decided not to bother the two of them.

Julia then made an executive decision and made her way over to Theodore, setting her tray down she gave him a smile. "Good morning, Theodore." She gestured to the seat in front of her. "Do you mind if I sit with you?"

Mathias lay on his sofa, his TV was switched on and it was switched to a news channel, all of it just seemed to be bad news, just pain and suffering. With a sigh, he picked himself up and reached for the remote, as he stretched he noticed a blur flight past his window, heading in the general direction of gravitation pull, in a fit of panic, Mathias ran to his balcony and threw himself over the edge, he was chasing a blur and he couldn't quite make out who it was but his adrenaline was pumping as he dropped, picking up speed but not going fast enough, then all of a sudden the blur stopped and swung into one of the windows.

Mathias' expression of concern and determination turned into embarrassment and annoyance, he quickly caught himself and entered the same window. He let himself take a few steps into the room before letting his wings fade, he glanced around the room and then noticed Nathaniel on the floor, Mathias then offered him his hand to help him up, he then looked over at Frankie. "Shit, Spinster, you gave me a heart attack." He admitted, slightly chuckling to himself for not assuming it was someone testing their limits. He then looked back to Bane, and give him an awkward laugh. "Sorry for the intrusion."

Falling through the air has some amount of peacefulness to it. Sure you're plummeting to your death but when there is the certainty of your survival you get a new look at things. At least that was how it was for Frankie every time she free fell from a building. She was about halfway down the height of Descendant Tower when she heard he phone ding from her pocket. "For the love of all things holy."

She rolled her eyes, ignoring her phone as another ding was heard. Her gaze fell to her watch. When the timer hit 1, she shot a web up into the air. Just as it caught onto a piece of the tower above a large gust of the wind slammed into her. She tried to steady her swing the wind sent her right towards the building. "No... No, no, no, no, no!" Seeing an open window, she angled herself as best as she could for it. Just before flying through it she released the web to avoid getting yanked back out into the strong wind.

Frankie nearly missed the window before slamming into something about as sturdy as a wall. The rest seemed to happen in slow motion as he toppled back and she fell with him, coming to rest on top of him. "Ow."

"Sorry." She groaned, placing her hands on the ground and carefully standing back up. Frankie then reached down to take Nathaniel's hand and helped pull him back up to his feet. If she were a typical human she probably wouldn't even be able to nudge him but she was nearly as strong as her father. Sure she couldn't lift a semi, but maybe a mini van or sedan.

Her attention was drawn back to the window when Mathias came flying through. "Shit, Spinster, you gave me a heart attack." He chuckled. "Sorry for the intrusion."

Frankie smiled sympathetically feeling embarrassed about the fuss she just made. "I was testing something I finally finished last night." She wiggles her wrist that had the watch on it. "... Couldn't sleep." Her voiced trailed off. She hoped neither of them asked why she was having trouble sleeping. "I'm just glad muscles over here opened his window when he did." Her hand reached out to pat Nathaniel's chest but she slowly stopped, flushing slightly when she noticed she was touching his severely muscular chest that look way too nice in the clingy shirt.

She reached into her pocket to finally see what the ruckus was on her phone.

From Julie:
"Need to go dress shopping, ASAP. Please tell me I'm not going alone! :( "

From Anansi:
"SOS, Dying of boredom, save me from myself~!"

The texts jogged her memory and before she lost what little bit of confidence she had, she spun on her heels to fave Nathaniel. "Hey so you're going to the dance right?" She cursed under her breath, "Of course you are, stupid question." She cleared her throat. "Well like... Are you going with anyone? Because I mean if not you can go with me... If you want." Then she started the nervous rambling, "I just mean because no one should go to a dance alone you know? It doesn't have to be a date or anything. Just go as friends so we don't have to show up stag... Well I mean unless you wanna go as dates. Because that's cool too, or not. I mean whatever... I'm rambling now." She broke eye contact and looked down at her hands.

Julia blushed slightly and glanced away from Theodore as he ignored her salutations, nevertheless he didn't shoo her away, and Julia took the seat, his attitude making her want to sit in front of him all the more, merely to annoy him for being rude, some would call her immature and she would most definitely agree, she got it from her father after all. As he stared at her, Julia stared back at him, waiting for something to be said, but he simply went back to his food and Julia rolled her eyes.

"Well, aren't we in a good mood today... some would say you were just electric." Julia looked up to the left as she considered whether or not she was being incredibly insulting or just attempting a pathetic pun, she'd let him decide and if he was insulted she'd apologise. She tried to read his aura but the electricity that flowed through him made her powers confusing and painful to even use, as if the electricity disrupted her magic, trying to focus through the electricity gave her a sharp sting in both her temples, she made an audible gasp of pain and even clenched her fists, the knuckles turning white from the pressure. She quickly gave up on trying to read him and grabbed her cup of water and drank it, followed by a quick scoop of her breakfast, hoping some hydration and sugar would help with the pain throbbing around her head.

Mathias gave Frankie's sympathetic smile, a hopeful one in return. "Well, I hope your sleepless night wasn't completely wasted." He gave her another smile. "Even if it gave me a heart attack." Mathias then glanced between the two and apologised again for intruding and quickly took his leave, not knowing the layout of Nathaniel's apartment, he simply left the way he came, through the window. Not wanting to hang about the window as he decided what to do next, he did a couple of loops around the building, trying to decide what to do, his adrenaline from seeing Frankie base jump like that still made his heart pound his chest. If he believed Uberfacts, eating would calm his nerves and the adrenaline and excitement would diminish, but it wasn't his belief in those social media facts that drew him to the canteen, it was the rumbling of his stomach.

Dropping down to the entrance of the building, Mathias made for the canteen, his thoughts mainly on eating and not really taking in the faces around him. As he reached for a bagel, he noticed the agitation in the glorified dinner ladies voice as she dealt with a member of staff and sighed with a roll of his eyes. On his approach, he modified his vocal cords, making them work with the subtle tone of a low B; when he screamed a low B it made enemies friendly so maybe speaking with a low B made people friendlier. As he ordered the eggs, he noticed a slight shift in her demeanour and he smiled at his achievement and she even smiled back when he thanked her. Both of their faces scrunched up in confusion when she said 'you're welcome', and she immediately caught onto what had happened,
"You just used your powers on me! The woman shrieked. "How dare you? I'll report you for using your powers on a member of staff."
"Oh God forbid, you're actually nice and likeable for 10 seconds." Mathias blurted out before he'd really thought about what he said and he could have sworn he saw her eyes turn red as he quickly left the food bar and made for the tables.

He made his way to one of the back tables and reclined on his seat, his feet on the table and his arm draped over the chair next to him, at least if she came out with a butcher knife he could simply fly over the canteen as she navigated through the tables. He quickly glanced at the other tables before he ate his breakfast, Lilith was seemingly trying to take Jai a walk, whilst Enzo and Kain had breakfast, but he was more surprised to spot Theodore and Julia sitting together, as far as he was aware, Theodore hated everyone in the Academy, well at least he had a feeling Theodore didn't like him.

"Sorry." It took a moment to realize it was Frankie who came crashing through his window. He muttered a quick response. "It's okay." She offered him a hand up and Nathaniel was a bit surprised by her strength when she pulled him up making him jump a bit to his feet. Though her strength did explain why she was able to knock him down. That and physics. Another soon came flying through his window though this one had a more graceful landing. It was Mathias who seemed alarmed and came to make sure they were okay. Nathaniel didn't say anything as the two conversed. That was until a hand came to his chest. "I'm just glad muscles over here opened his window when he did." Her hand quickly pulled away as he caught her face flush though Nathaniel became flustered as well out of embarrassment over his current dripping state.

Mathias seemed to leave as quickly as he came with an apology for his intrusion though Nathaniel wasn't upset about it. He nodded at him and gave him an attempted smile as he went across the room into his dresser to fish for a clean shirt just as Frankie spoke to him again after checking her phone. "Hey so you're going to the dance right?" She cursed under her breath, "Of course you are, stupid question." Natahniel chuckled under a bit as he put on a fresh white tank. "Well like... Are you going with anyone? Because I mean if not you can go with me... If you want." Nathaniel's face dropped just as she began to ramble nervously. "I just mean because no one should go to a dance alone you know? It doesn't have to be a date or anything. Just go as friends so we don't have to show up stag... Well I mean unless you wanna go as dates. Because that's cool too, or not. I mean whatever... I'm rambling now." Nathaniel stood there silently not wanting to muster up the words he said next as he looked at the ground unable to look at her. "Alex asked me..." Another long pause. "I said yes..."



Jai seemed rather distraught as he just sat there on the ground while the villains discussed their master plan before Lilith addressed him again after referring to him as a spy. โ€œFunny that you could fall anywhere in the world, yet you fall here.โ€ Jai laughed nervously and rubbed the back of his head. "I just have great timing." She stood up and walked over to him. โ€œDo you want to take a walk?โ€ Jai tilted his head a bit to the side. Walk? He was The Flash after all. โ€œOr have a seat?โ€ Jai looked at the table as they continued to discuss their world domination plans frightening him a bit. He gulped and sprung to his feet. "Walking sounds good." He came up next to her and began to match her pace though it all felt weird.

"So are you guys really planning world domination?" Jai seemed almost serious and also scared with his question considering how gullible he was. He flustered out another response. "I don't mind as long as I'm safe as just the spy." He grinned as he opened the cafeteria door for her to lead her into the halls. "Or at least do it after the dance so I still have a chance of taking you."

"Yeah of course... She's really pretty... and after that kiss last night why not." It was like Nathaniel just kicked a puppy... "I just didn't want you to go alone and you're not... So that's good and yeah. I'm sure you'll have fun.... and โ€”" More like kicked a puppy, danced all over it, shot it a couple times, then set it on fire with the way Frankie ran out of his room. Nathaniel's heart sank for not realizing she wanted to go with him. He suddenly regretted saying yes to Alex but he couldn't back out now for a girl that may or may not like him more than a friend and abandon one of the few friends he has that isn't a murderous sociopath/psychopath. Still he hated missing his opportunity to take her to the dance. Nathaniel was an complete and utter idiot...

โ€œAs long as thatโ€™s your only request.โ€ Jai was about to take a victory lap and possibly even dance a bit just as Lilith's finger flew up at him stopping Jai before he even had the chance. โ€œBut I have some conditions,โ€ Jai's face fell a little at her warnings thinking she was going to go make him do outrageous tasks to take her. Donโ€™t step on my feet and donโ€™t get sent to the infirmary again. And maybe donโ€™t sing? Think you can handle it?โ€ Jai stood up straight and brought his hand up to a salute with a concentrated expression. "Yes, ma'am." His expression quickly changed to a dopey little grin. "Well, I'll try my best to meet your demands but if I really feel the music... I may not be able to stop the glorious dying cat sounds that will come out."

She then added another tease of hers after Jai had just been staring and waiting for a few moments. โ€œAre you sure I can't persuade you to the dark side?โ€ Jai laughed. "Probably not..." Jai began to fidget around realizing she was done before exclaiming, "I'm gonna take a victory lap now." With that, he was gone in a flash and running around entire school letting everyone know he was taking Lilith to the dance. He was back as quickly as he left and finished off answering Lilith's question. "I'm far too pretty to go to jail plus what would Barry Allen think if he found out I switched to Team Zoom." Jai gasped and covered his mouth in dramatic effect. "That'd be worse than disappointing my dad if he were on this Earth."

Ichabod decided to finally take a break from his lab and answer his stomach's calls by getting breakfast. He walked without a care in the world with slumped shoulders and hands buried in the pockets of his sweatpants he'd been wearing all night. He grabbed himself a tray and loaded it with whatever looked appetizing before making a decision of where to sit. He could pester the not so happy Riddler and Joker couple once more though that seemed more boring to him today than usual. though most things seemed boring to Ichabod. There were a few groups he could terrorize but instead he decided to be still his presence upon a songbird sitting all alone. He threw his tray down in front of Mathis and took a seat. "So why is the school's second most eligible bachelor sitting all alone?" He faked a smirking smile as he took a bite of his food and pointed his fork at Mathias. "Shouldn't you be asking some lucky guy to the dance instead of eavesdropping on girlish conversations?"

"You knew that would hurt, didn't you?" Ichabod responded with a shrug as he ate. "I just happen to have perfect timing." Mathias had squinted his eyes at him though Ichabod gave no response to it as he calmly ate his breakfast waiting for his next comment. "And who's the most eligible bachelor?" If Mathias was expecting a conceited answer, he wasn't getting one from Ichabod who piped up in between bites. "Why Bane of course... One word out of him and it's suddenly like he was angel sent from the heavens if you believe in that divine bullshit." He shrugged an took another bite spilling out some gossip like it wasn't even important to him. "He's supposedly going with Alex Todd to the dance though you'll find out in moments if you keep listening in on that conversation." Ichabod smirked at him.

Ichabod then finally took the time to answer Mathias's comment that had followed his question earlier once he was finished with his breakfast. He laced his fingers together and propped his elbows up onto the table as he spoke. "I've found in my studies that it's nearly impossible for a man to go without sex. Even I can't resist it's call." It was next to impossible to tell whether or not Ichabod was trying to crack a joke at this moment. "Also the girlish conversation, might either result in another Natchios/Bullseye stabbing, or some insight into why Theodore is all of a sudden very popular, obviously no offence to him." Ichabod had turned around to look at the tables seemingly unamused. "Well the stabbing has a high probability and the reasoning for Theodore's popularity is simple." Ichabod spun back around to face Mathias. "People desire what they perceive as unattainable... Along with the cliche bad boy."

Nathaniel still felt horrible as he forced himself out of his room. He still wished he hadn't said yes to Alex but he wasn't going to go back on a promise he made to a friend. That kiss meant nothing to them anyways of course... Right? Right, of course it didn't. They were just friends and lab partners and Alex wasn't into guys like that so it was all fine. Nathaniel somehow found his way into the cafeteria after being lost in thought. He scanned the room and noticed Enzo and Junior bickering like an old married couple. There was someone else watching them and it was a bit odd. Nathaniel had never seen her before and he felt uncomfortable with the way she was staring at Junior like he was some sort of saint. At least it gave him an excuse to avoid that table until Junior beckoned him sooner or later and approach Alex. He tapped her shoulder and grunted a greeting in his typical fashion. "Hey."

"Okay, honey. What's your favourite colours to wear? Also who's your date and we shall buy him a tie to match while we're out." Alex was genuinely surprised at how easy that was. Julia flicked her wrist to make a credit card appear in her hand and responded before Alex opened her mouth. "And when I say I'm paying, I mean grandaddy dearest." Alex smirked in response as she took the card. "It seems you know the way to my heart, princess." She teased.

Julia went on to address the other members of the table while Alex finally answered Lindsey's question from earlier. "Yes, Kari..." She purposely used the family nickname. "For once in my life I want your help." Just then a massive shadow appeared looming over Alex. She almost jumped in her seat. Almost. "Hey." He grunted at her which only caused her to roll her eyes. "Speaking of dates...." She spun in her seat to face him. "Mine finally decided to show up for dress shopping."



Junior had laughed when Enzo decided to threaten him with a fork between his fingers just as Kain decided to leave. Junior didn't take the threat as seriously as any sane man should have. "Do it... I wanna see if it tickles." Another laugh as Enzo had taken a seat once more after throwing out his food. "Where's your brutish minion? That one hates me nearly as much as he hates you?" Junior of course had a response lined right up for his comment just as Bane decided to make his presence known in the cafeteria.

"Speak of the devil and the devil shall come." Junior grinned and pointed towards Bane as he walked over to Alex and her dysfunctional group of wannabe heroes. "Such a shame for those two... Bane could actually do better." He laughed when finally decided to address what he noticed before. "But it seems I may have found another little minion." He waved at the girl who had been staring at him practically calling he rover to them.



"I don't know what you're talking about." Frankie was such a terrible liar with Freddie. "Frankie you're my only friend and we basically grew up together. It'd be blasphemy if I didn't know when you were lying or how obviously into that brute you are." He ended it with a light hearted smile as he put a hand on her shoulder just as she changed the conversation to something more upbeat. "Let's go. I need a dress, haven't quite decided if I wanna try to turn everyone's heads or blend into the crowd. But yours will be simple... a Tux with a tie that matches my dress."

Freddie sighed as he gave his two cents on the dress. "I'm gonna vote turn everyone's heads on this one." She was already out the door when he spoke and turned around to make another comment. "And a shave... You need a shave." Freddie rubbed the beard that was starting to form and scoffed at her. "I thought girls liked the rugged look... And some guys too." He laughed and gave her a wink. Frankie was probably the only one he'd ever at like this around.

A girl was waiting right outside of his room that he barely recognized and assumed was friends with Frankie. She was the social one of their duo after all. Freddie greeted her with a simple nod and hands tucked into his pockets.

Theme:Control Interacting With: Enzo, Joker Junior, Mentioned:



"But it seems I may have found another little minion." The Mad One said, Daria visibly flinched when suddenly the Mad one's eyes turned on her. She didn't know what to do when he suddenly waved at her. Her heart was racing and her pulse was quickening, burning the sedatives that she'd taken hours earlier. She stood up, clutching her bag to her chest as she took slow steps toward him. He and the Green one were looking at her, the Mad One smiling that mad smile. He wasn't angry for her spying? She knew that people at Xavier's didn't like it, he didn't seem to mind by the way he smiled. She didn't know what to do, or say, just looked at him, trying to swallow the lump that formed in her throat, and calm her heart that wanted so desperately to burst from her chest.
"Say something..." She thought to herself, kicking herself for not being able to find the words. She wasn't used to talking to people and she certainly wasnโ€™t used to this feeling in her chest, whenever he looked at her.
She opened her mouth to speak, but it was that moment, the small watch on her wrist began to beep, and in her fright, she dropped her bag, sending her things clattering to the floor.

In a panic, she dropped to her knees and gathered her medication first, opening a black wallet like pouch, making sure the glass bottles hadn't broken, when she found they weren't. She zipped it back up, and set it in to her bag. She fiddled with her watch, fumbling to get it off her wrist to stop it's incessant beeping . She knew she had to take her medication but she didn't want to right now and she didn't want them to know she needed them. Thought by now, it was much too late.

"I'm Sorry, So Sorry." She said, quickly, though her voice was still low and haunting, a touch of her mother's accent in her voice, as she used her power, her fingers twitching oddly, linking all of her things, her notebooks, pencils, and other things together with a magenta glow, and calling them to her, floating them just above the ground, at her knees, she then released them dropped them one by one into her open bag, shoved them haphazardly in her bag before raising. "I have to--they help me with my--"She pointed to her head realized she was already feeling the effects of her mind without the sedatives, the strings that kept reality together ripe for the plucking in her vision. She shook it off blinking a few times to get the visions to go away, even though her eyes were likely glowing a bright magenta. She dropped her head, looking at the floor, clutching bag to her chest again. "I'm sorry for spying." She said, defeated.

As Wren started filing through his clothes, Christian spoke up, "What you said earlier about you having a negative effect on me...well, do you really think so?" She stopped for a moment to glance over her shoulder at him. "Because I don't. Besides, I'm not one for arguments anyway...and, well, I don't feel like arguing with you ...I don't see any point in it, since I don't mind." She turned back towards the clothes, smiling slightly at his comment.

It seemed that her later comment took him but surprise. "Huh?" Definitely taken by surprise. "No, no, of course not. I don't think you're being pushy...if anything you actually care enough to show me some attention." The corner of Wren's mouth began to upturn into a slight smile. "As for the dance...well, I don't know if I should go. It was a reward for those who showed up during the simulations...I didn't go because it's dangerous for myself and others when I'm placed in a perilous situation. From what I heard, the simulations they placed you guys into was real. If I was in one of those rooms with a partner, then I would be terrified for my partner's life. That's why I wasn't there...I was excused, but even though I had an excuse, I'm not sure if it feels right going since I didn't take that risk."

Wren lightly crossed her arms over her chest. "It's not just a reward for the simulations... It's like some stupid anniversary something or whatever." She shrugged. "That's why everyone is allowed going, just the ones who skipped class have KP duty." She strummed her fingers along her the bicep of her crossed arms while her gaze fell to the floor. "As for the simulations... Be happy you weren't in them. I heard they were all rather.... Challenging. Most people were partnered with either someone they hated or had similar powers with because it was designed to test us in the most fundamental of ways... It had all the possibility to kill us though."

She then put up her index finger, "Everyone deserves to have a nice evening at a dance. So you shall go to the ball Cinderella." Wren chuckled while wiggling her eyebrows.

Christian Scratched his head, "Uh, sorry guess I'm kind of ruining the moment. You go on ahead and keep looking through those clothes, I don't want you to stop."

Wren grinned as she spun around and continued back on her mission to find the perfect outfit. In no time she had started a collection of his most formal clothing, tossing them behind her on the bed. "Just think about how many people here probably twerk like someone having a seizure." She snorted at her own joke.

As she kept sifting through his clothes she was unaware of the internal battle that was taking over Christian. Wren had her arms full of clothing as she spun around. "So what colorโ€”" He gaze finally fell upon him seeing his internal battle show across his face. She slowly stepped towards the bed, setting the clothing down.

He then broke out of it shouting, "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!" Her eyes widened. Not from fear of him turning over before her or anything else but for Christian's own well being. She saw how the symbiote took a toll on him. She couldn't imagine what it was like having a monster inside you clawing to get out. She simply stood there watching as he got a syringe from his nightstand and stuck it in his arm. Once the liquid was inside him he dropped the needle and just stood there.

Wren saw his hands shaking and just stood there momentarily trying to figure out what to do. She moved to him, gently placing her hand on his shoulder, guiding him to sit back down. After she got him to sit, she scurried off to his kitchen getting a glass of water. She knelt on the ground before him holding out the glass. Her free hand took his and held it to the cup as she guided it to him. "Drink." Her thumb softly stroked his hand trying to calm him.

Her right hand moved to softly pat his knee as she shifted back on her heels. Wren's hand remained on his knee so he knew she was there to help. "You tell Mr. Hyde that he better play nice or he'll have to deal with me." She gave a soft chuckle with a slight smile.

Enzo clenched his jaw when Junior laughed at his threat. He hated it how the man looked at him as just a funny little thing. It made him feel even more inferior than he already made him feel constantly. "Do it... I wanna see if it tickles." It was infuriating because trying to assert yourself to him was like trying to threaten a wall... Impossible.

Just as Enzo asked about Bane, it seemed he appeared. "Speak of the devil and the devil shall come." His eyes followed where Junior pointed, scoffing slightly when he saw the brute sit with Frankie. "Such a shame for those two... Bane could actually do better."

He snorted, "Were you oblivious at the party last night?" Enzo quirked a brow towards Junior. "Although they both shared a steamy kiss... His eyes were set on another the entire evening." He cupped his hands together, entangling his fingers. "Figured someone like you would have noticed that."

"But it seems I may have found another little minion." Junior then waved towards the girl to join them.

"Joy." Enzo said with disdain. Just another person to steal away Junior's attention. He really was quite the horrible companion. He scratched his chin as the girl stood there trying to figure out how to access the situation. When she went to speak an alarm on her watch went off which sent the girl in a tizzy, dropping her things about the floor.

Enzo glanced towards Junior whom he half expected to start laughing and degrading her at the first moment of her fuss. So he cleared his throat before moving to kneel beside the girl and help her collect up her things. She seemed extremely worried about some sort of medicine in her bag which he allowed her to deal with while he helped with the simple things like pens and notebooks.

"I'm Sorry, So Sorry." He raised a brow as some sort of telekinetic ability she had moved the items from the ground and into her bag. "I have to--they help me with my--"

"You're not the first person to come to this academy that needs meds" He then stood up. "And you won't be the last either."

"Frankie you're my only friend and we basically grew up together. It'd be blasphemy if I didn't know when you were lying or how obviously into that brute you are." Although Freddie was right, she didn't humor him by admitting it. She simply chewed on her cheek wanting to avoid the topic all together.

When it came to her commenting on what type of outfit she should wear he seemed to have an answer she didn't expect, "I'm gonna vote turn everyone's heads on this one."

"I'm not one to be the center of attention though." Freddie knew that was the truth, she was friendly but never cared to have all eyes on her. "But I guess it mayโ€”" Frankie trailed off not finishing that statement. He knew what she was getting at and vice versa.

Freddie rubbed his shadow that was forming on his jawline, "I thought girls liked the rugged look... And some guys too."

She sighed, "It's a ball... Not a rundown bar. Generally there are standards."

Frankie smiled when she opened the door to see Anansi standing there waiting. "Hey." She looked towards Freddie, "You be nice. Believe it or not I have more friends than you shining aura." She nodded her head towards Anansi, "She needs to get a dress too plus it helps to have a girls opinion dress shopping... Because asking you how I look in every dress probably will only help so much."

She reached into her pocket pulling out a set of keys. Surprisingly her father got her a car a few years back. Frankie knew he was trying to keep her from webslinging everywhere... Usually didn't work. But since there was more than just her, she figured it'd be a good reason to use it. "Ready?" She twirled the keyring around her finger.

"Oh so you want us to take your advances as compliments, gotcha!"

Theodore merely rolled his eyes at Julia. She's quite the teaser and normally that wouldn't matter to him but if she's gonna act like that all day then it's going to get old real quick. "And we can't leave until we find Kumiko anyway. So chill, we have the whole day. But we won't spend the whole day shopping." Theo nodded, "Yeah...I hope." He muttered. "Also Kallistrate is coming, so we need to wait on her." Not too soon after she said it, Kallistrate did appear. "Just how many people do you need to go dress shopping with?" Theo rhetorically asked.

He wasn't sure what he was getting himself into. Obviously the lack of urgency was grating on Theo's patience, and Julia certainly wasn't making anything better. Perhaps he should just bow out now before it's too late. As he considered it he did think about the repercussions of bowing out, he'll probably get an earful from the girls around him. After all he is their only male opinion. Well at least he thought he was. Looming over them like a tower, Nathaniel Bane arrived and gave a single utterance to alert the others to his presence, as if simply standing there wasn't enough.

"Hey." He grunted at her which only caused her to roll her eyes. "Speaking of dates...." She spun in her seat to face him. "Mine finally decided to show up for dress shopping."

Theo looked over to Alex and with an accusatory stare and said, "A male opinion huh?" He then just shook his head.

Shaking, Christian was easily manipulated by Wren into sitting down. His stare was distant as if he was off in another world far away from him. He didn't seem to notice anyone, not even Wren as she touched him. He sat there, lost within some great void left behind by the Symbiote. Also the medicine does have spaciness as a side-effect, it especially hits him if he misses a dosage. The only thing that brought him out of his lull was the sound of Wren's voice. "Drink." Christian finally looked over to her as his hands, shakily, took the glass of water.

Obviously his coordination suffered some spilling a good deal of water on himself. Still he managed to get some liquid down his throat as he began to cough. As she touched his knee, Christian looked over to her to see her smile. "You tell Mr. Hyde that he better play nice or he'll have to deal with me." Christian nodded slowly in response. "T-Thank you." He stuttered. "W-Wren!" He suddenly spoke up. "W-Will you go to the dance with me? I-I want someone to go with, and you're the only one I-I can think to ask."

Julai chuckled at Alex's reaction to the credit card she had just been handed, "Well, damn, I guess I've just stolen anyone else's chances. Don't worry, Nathy, I'll look after her." Julia teased, acknowledging the giant's presence with warmth rather than the coldness some other Gotham kids might have.

Julia turned her attention back to Theodore as he addressed her, she got a mixed surge of emotions, nearly overwhelming, but the surge was short lived, but it was still enough to startle her, she wasn't even quite sure if she reacted visibly in front of the others, she knew her eyes probably bulged from her head and her lips released an escaped gasp, but whether or not she physically tensed, she couldn't know unless someone asked.

She then focused back on Theodore, pushing the event to the back of her head. "I'm not going to torture you all day, it can make torture pretty boring if you do it 24/7." She gave him a smile followed by an eye roll at his rhetorical question which she was going to answer, regardless of if he wanted an answer or not. "It helps to suss out the competition for the award of best dressed." She give him a playful wink with a sweet smile and small shrug. She then looked over her shoulder at the Demented Duo, who were joined by a new girl, the girl with similar energies to the ones that surged throughout her body not long ago. Quickly turning her head back to the group, she gave a smile to the group and lightly clapped for attention. "Shall we head for town now?"

Having pondered on the subject of going alone, he'd grown curious as to who Ichabod was taking and even pipped up the question. "And who are you taking to the dance?" He tilted his head with a playful smirk. "As one of said bad boys, you must have a line of adoring fans." As he sat facing the entrance to the cafeteria, he found it very hard to miss the pink haired beauty who floated her way into the cafeteria. He was aware of how little friends she had and felt sorry for her, he'd try his best to be nice to her but in team exercises or any sort of power testing, she would be completely nonnegotiable or unwilling, it gave him a disdain for her but he wouldn't say he hated her, more her work ethic, but that didn't stop his bitchy comment. "I'm sure Tianna has a shared interest."

Her sisters attitude was one of the most annoying things she would consider dealing with. They were family, you would think there would be some kind of bond even a little. But not with Alex, she hated them and even though she did Kari couldn't find it in herself to hate Alex which was annoying in itself. Kari stopped engaging with the group after that, she just listened and finished her breakfast. "Well, I'm going to find Kumiko and convince her to come with us. I'll meet you guys later." She said as she stood from the table. It was directed more towards Julia than anyone else. "It may take awhile." She added before taking her trash and leaving the table.

She tossed the trash and began her search for Kumiko. If anyone knew Kumiko they knew she was in one of vary few places, her penthouse. So Kari made her way there, ironically it wasn't vary hard to get there and the elevator ride was short. You would think someone like Kumiko would live in the very top penthouse but of course they didn't get to choose where they lived.

When she reached the penthouse she knocked on the door, "Kumiko! I'm sorry I laughed at you. I didn't mean to hurt your feelings!"

"What do you want?" Kumiko suddenly appeared behind Kari in her training gear.

Lindsey screamed her hand reached for her heart. She turned away from the door "For gods sake don't do that to me!" Kumiko wasn't fazed by her screaming or the fact that she didn't like it. She moved around Kari and opened her door and walked inside. Knowing Lindsey would follow she left the door open.

"Anyway, I just wanted to apologize for earlier. Me laughing. I didn't mean to hurt your feelings, honest." She repeated following Kumiko into the room."So to show that I was really sorry I wanted to invite you to come dress shopping with a bunch of us girls, and a few guys but that's beside the point.

Kumiko went into her bedroom, to change Lindsey assumed, without saying a word to Lindsey. In all honesty Lindsey was beginning to think that Kumiko was ignoring the fact that she was there.

Finally Kumiko imerged from her bedroom dressed in her usual type outfits. They weren't casual but they weren't really normal either. "I never said you hurt my...feelings, so there is no need for you to feel the need to make it up to me by inviting me to dress shop with you. I also don't plan on going to the dance.

Kari opened her mouth to defend her decision to invite her but Kumiko was right. If Kari hadn't hurt her feelings she would have never thought to invite Kumiko. "I hurt your feelings, I know I did. You may not know what that means but I know what it looks like when someone's feelings get hurt. Besides, of course your going to the dance. You'll be the only one Not there. Even Nathaniel is going.

"Fine. Kumiko gave in which resulted in Lindsey squealing and hugging the breath out of her. "Great, lets go. I told them we'd meet them there.

They all spent the remainder of the evening shopping around at stores, relaxing and setting up for the dance. It was a rare occasion to have a free day at the Academy student took advantage of it. Most of them scurried off to bed early, especially the girls who had an entire day of preparation in store for the next day. The academy had never seem so still and quiet as it did that morning and afternoon. Everyone stayed in their rooms spending more time than needed perfecting their attire.

The dance now was less than an hour away...




Enzo had been ready for the better part of an hour. He then proceeded to spend the following half an hour staring at his glorious reflection and then decided to finally sit around and read. He was half tempted to just go to the dance early and without Junior. That psycho has been finding a way to get on his every nerve recently. Nothing new but... Still upsetting when you're supposed to be in a mutual relationship.

His mind was racing. With a huff he stood up and grabbed his green vest. He went back to stand in the mirror as he put it on and buttoned it up. Following that he grabbed his tuxedo jacket deciding to put it on as well.

"Well it's now or never."

He grabbed his signature cane, tucking it under the bend in his arm before heading out of his room and down the hall. Instead of taking the elevator and risk showing anyone his on point attire before they were ready, Enzo took the stairs to Juniors level. Heading down the hallway towards his door, he straighten his jacket and slicked back his hair.

Enzo cleared his throat, before grabbing his can and tapping it on the door. He then proceeds to prop against the wall opposite of the door, waiting with a devious smirk upon his face.

"I remember my prom..." Wren's father said on the other end of the phone.

"Dad... It's not a prom, I told you this." She held the phone between her cheek and shoulder as she rummaged through her closet looking for her shoes.

"More importantly I remember my prom night..." Wren laughed weakly as her Father paid no mind to her comment. "You know that's the night you were conceived."

"No it's not."

"Maybe you're right... It was a good night though."

"God dammit!" Wren yelled at her closet as she put her phone on speaker and set it on a shelf.

"Now is that anyway to speak to your fucking Father?"

She rolled her eyes at her phone before hiking up her dress so she could kneel on the ground. "I can't find my shoes." Wren started quite literally digging through her mountain of shoes.

"The red ones?"

"No not the โ€” wait... What? How do you know?"

"...I have them."

"What!?"

"That matched my suit so well. Thought it'd be fun if I like... stabbed someone with them. Ask if they got my point."

"Dad!" She gasped when she saw the heels hidden in the back corner of her closet. "You're an asshole."

"Hey now young lady... That may be true, but that's Mister-Father-Asshole to you."

"Dad I gotta go... I have a date."

"Wait what? What's his name? His sign?... Does he like long walks on the beach and painfully killing asshats?"

"K bye dad, love you."

"But wait we need to talk boysโ€”" Wren hung up on her dad before snatching up her shoes. She shoved her phone into her small clutch purse and hurried back over to the mirror. She gave a half hearted sigh at her appearance. The one moment where she wished she was more of... Well a girl. She was shit at make up and even more shit at her hair. All she had going for her was a bomb ass dress.

She hopped around around she slipped her heels on each foot. Wren took one more look at herself in the mirror and was about to just say fuck it and leave... But then she turned around and looked write at the author. "Well bitch... Do something about this... Make me pretty."

At first nothing happened but then in a cloud of perfume and make powder Wren actually looked... Well fairly pretty. Wren looked over in the mirror nodding her head in approval. "There's that sexy beast." She then looked down at her empty hand, "Well it won't fill itself." After a snap of her fingers a box with a rose boutonniere rested in her palm.

With a smirk, she scooped up the train of her dress and headed out of her room. She didn't know if Christian would second guess going to the dance or not so she figured it'd be best if she just showed up ready to go. In no time Wren was at his door. She released her train to knock on the door, hiding the box behind her back. "I hope you're not getting cold feet Dr. Jekyll."

***

Frankie paced back and forth through her room. Her hands were nervously fidgeting as she continued to walk around instead of finishing getting ready. She could just stay up in her room. She didn't need to go to a dance. Sure she already did her hair and makeup... But she wasn't dressed.

Oh the dress... Why in the world did she buy that dress. It was subtle so she could blend or anything, no. She had to take the stupid advice of a friend who told her that she get his attention. Now she's stuck with an over the top dress that she couldn't hide in even if she wanted to.

Maybe if she didn't go to Freddie's room he would just... Forget about the dance? And then she could hide up in her room in an ignorant bliss. She didn't want to Nathaniel there with another girl. Sure she loves dancing... And dances but the whole idea of the night just made her sick to her stomach.

Frankie just went over to her couch plopping down right there, not changing out of her robe and just sat there. She carefully rubbed her temples being sure not to mess up her make up or hair. "It's just a stupid dance..."

Alex could help but fidget with discomfort as she looked at herself in the mirror. If only she could ditch this stupid dance and go out for a run or work on experiments with Nathaniel instead of making him her date. Why did Bruce have to force her to go to this thing? Ugh, she hated dances and she hated having to wear a dress but of course dear ol' Bruce insisted on it. It wasn't like she looked bad or anything. It was plain black and short so it didn't draw attention on her but it looked cute on her and she actually had her makeup done and her hair curled for once. Alex still felt like she wasn't herself though. She'd rather be in jeans and a t shirt with some kick ass leather boots.

There was a knock at the door and Alex may have rushed over a little too quickly hoping it was Nathaniel so they could get in and out of that dance as quickly as possibly but of course it had to be Bruce Wayne instead trying to play the role of Dad. "You look beautiful, Alex." He smiled down at her but Alex wasn't buying any of it as she folded her arms and glared at him. "Well you bought it." Alex couldn't help but smirk at the way his face changed over her announcement. "How did you?" Alex shrugged. "Flirted with the right witch."

Bruce was no pleased with her but that only made Alex's night a little bit better. Well since I already paid for your dress... I also got you another gift." Bruce revealed a small box he'd been hiding behind his back. It had a white corsage made of a single rose. Alex wasn't sure what to say as he tied it around her wrist but she did manage to mutter a, "Thanks." He laughed softly. "What's that? Alex Todd is actually thanking me?" Alex rolled her eye and gave him a gentle shove. "Whatever, old man." She walked passed him and to the door. "You're keeping me from my 'date'."

Alex hurried off down the hall playing with the flower around her wrist but quickly stopped in case Bruce was still watching while she searched for Nathaniel's room. She eventually found it and gave a gentle knock. "I'm coming in." She turned the knob thankful it was unlocked and that she wouldn't need to break in this time. She folded her arms as she waited for him. "Nice job breaking gender stereotypes by taking longer than me to get ready."



"Well aren't you the devil in disguise." Junior continued to admire his own reflection as he straightened out his tie and begin completing his look for the night. He used a thin tooth cob and some pomade to slick back his curls and even trimmed his beard so he looked clean yet still ruggedly handsome as ever. Junior simply couldn't get enough of how spectacular he looked in the tux he picked out with Enzo. He was going to be the best dressed and most desired man of the night.

A knock at the door managed to distract Junior from his reflection long enough to answer it. He was pleased to see Enzo waiting on the other side and smirked as he leaned against the door frame. "Oh my..." Junior looked him over. "I'm not sure I should let you leave looking this good." He chuckled a bit. "But then again, I will enjoy showing off my fellow king." He grinned and closed the door behind him as he put an arm out for Enzo. "Shall we go meet our subjects?"



Suddenly the name monkey suit made all too much sense to Freddie as he fidgeted around with the outfit Frankie picked out for him for tonight. He felt so uncomfortable in this contraption and like he wasn't himself. Still, tonight was Frankie's night so he manned up about the suit and even shaved his beard like she asked. Probably the only time he'd shave after being told.

Freddie straightened his tie up in the mirror and grabbed what he needed before leaving his room. he went down a floor to find Frankie's room and took a deep breathe before knocking on the door. He had half a mind to run away and forget this whole dance but he wasn't the type of guy to abandon his best friend. So instead, he waited at the door with a corsage in hand. He decided to lean up against the door frame with one arm when she opened the door and gave a big smirk. "Hey there, Cinderella. Ready to go to the ball?"

Was it too late to back out now? Maybe Alex would understand. After all, it wasn't like she actually wanted to go to this dance and it didn't take a genius like Enzo to figure out that Nathaniel wasn't exactly the best social buddy. Yet as much as Nathaniel just wnated to call it quits and just work out like everyone expected him too, he still put on the suit he and Alex picked out with the Motley Crew of supes and villains and was waiting for her to arrive.

He felt a bit comical staring back at himself so overly dressed up. He thought it looked like someone tried to pack sausage into spanx. Well it wasn't like he looked bad or anything but it still just seemed weird for Nathaniel to wear and he was more worried about accidentally ripped the thing apart if he wasn't careful with his powers tonight. Nathaniel seemed to be too tied up in himself to even realize that Alex had knocked at his door. Though of course she wasn't going to wait and barged right in anyways. Thank god he remembered to leave the door unlocked this time.

"Nice job breaking gender stereotypes by taking longer than me to get ready." Nathaniel couldn't help but give a small laugh over her comment and responded by going along with the gender role switch for the sake of keeping the joke going between them. He took her arm and hooked his inside hers so she would be the one taking the lead as the pair walked down towards the dance. He thought it'd be a funny little moment for the two of them as they walked in together though he wasn't sure how much he could have tonight knowing he may have blown his chances with another.

Jai, on the other hand, was bouncing off the walls more than usual as he dashed around his room getting ready. Somehow the speedster managed to be running late as he desperately tried to figure out how to put on his tie and properly tuck in his shirt. He had absolutely no idea what he was doing and was sure Lilith would find it amusing once he finally made it to her room. It'd spent a few extra moments still trying to figure out the mechanics of his tux before eventually giving up and dashing out of his room and then back again because he forgot the flowers.

Jai eventually was able to flash over to Lilith's room with his tie still undone around his neck and his shirt half untucked looking like a runaway groom. He knocked on the door and waited for her to answer while giving an apologetic grin. "Sorry I'm late. I had some technical difficulties with my tux..." He rubbed the back of his head nervously with his free hand before handing her the bouqet of flowers. "Uh, these are for you. They're lilies 'cause... uh... Lilith and I didn't know if I should do the corsage thing since this isn't a prom and I thought this would work and yeah..." He gave her a large grin as he rambled on.

Ichabod was already at the dance. He'd been one of the first to arrive though he didn't make his presence quite known despite his suit being far more colorful than his overall personality. He quite frankly had no idea why he even decided to show up to the event though the thought of testing some of his fear toxins during it did sound promising. Of course he was also interested in continuing is verbal bout with a certain little song bird that had entered the dance not too long after him. Though Ichabod hadn't approached him just yet as he seemed busy socializing. He instead decided to instead linger at the bar for a bit and see what pairings decided to show up next.

Nathaniel had been silent as he walked with Alex towards the dance. He was certainly more comfortable being vocal with her but he simple enjoyed just listening to her have the chance to ramble on about anything and everything she wanted when they were together. He found it humorous seeing the 'geeky' side of her that most didn't have the chance to see with her tough exterior. It was much like how everyone simply assumed Nathaniel was merely Junior's brute.

They eventually arrived at the dance much earlier than he had anticipated. Nathaniel did prefer punctuality but he assumed the unspoken rule of dances was to always arrive fashionably late. There was a small cluster of people already there though non Nathaniel particularly felt like engaging with. He instead decided to take the lead this time escorting Alex towards a punch bowl until the dancing began.

Jai couldn't help but grin from ear to ear when Lilith took the flowers and stuck one behind her ear. She looked absolutely breathe taking to him that Jai couldn't even find the words to describe it. โ€œNow, may I help with the technical difficulties?โ€ Jai quickly became flustered when she came over to him. "Uh, yeah. Sure... Go ahead." His face flushed as he watched her fix his tie and made him look more presentable. "Thank you." Lilith stepped away to examine him giving Jai the sudden need to begin posing for her. โ€œPerfect. Once you tuck in the rest of your shirt.โ€ Jai gave a nervous laugh as he started to tuck his shirt in properly. He looked back up to see that Lilith already left her room and was walking towards the elevator.

Of course Jai was right by her side in the elevator before the doors had the chance to close with a sudden breeze being the indicator of his presence. "I'm always chasing after you." He laughed again with his dopey grin. The doors opened and the pair walked into the room where the dance was being held and it seemed no one was ready to dance just yet... Except for Lilith. She began to sway her way to the dance floor and ask Jai to join her. His face lit up as he danced his way over with moves far less graceful than hers though he didn't care how ridiculous he looked dancing next to her. He jumped around and moved to the beat of his own drum with a bright childish expression plastered all over his face.

A hand had fell upon the back of Ichabod's arm followed by a charming voice he was familiar with. "Evening," He met Mathias's smile with a devilish looking smirk as he raised his glass and gave a nod in acknowledgement. "Evening." Ichabod took a moment to look over Mathias just as he decided to make a comment over Ichabod's own choice of outfit. "Most people put their worn out clothes on a Scarecrow, not their most dapper." Ichabod gave a soft chuckle before responding. "If this is your way of flirting... You could cerainly do better than that, Mathias." He took a sip of his drink. "And besides, I'm far more scarier dressed like this." He gave him a quick wink as he had a another sip of his drink.
