X-men: Genetic Drift

X-men: Genetic Drift

0 INK

All of the mutants were forcibly given 'the cure': a serum that suppressed their mutant genes. Over the next decades the dormant mutant genes started to mutate again and resurface in teens. The genes are now even stronger than they were before.

883 readers have visited X-men: Genetic Drift since DreamlandDenizen created it.

Introduction

The human versus mutant war was finally brought to an end when the humans managed to forcibly administer their 'cure' to all mutants. What they didn't realize was that the cure merely repressed the mutant genes, not eliminated them. The genes lay dormant, and forgotten for many generations growing strong in the recesses of their host's DNA.

Now, decades later, they've begun to resurface again. Some young teenagers have began to develop awesome abilities, and these new mutants are now immune to the old cure.

The last war is still fresh on everyone's mind and the military has decided that if the new mutants can't be cured they'd be killed to the last one.

The mutants are powerful but they're young, unorganized, and they have trouble controlling their powers. If any of them hope to survive they'll have to band together and learn to live and fight as one.

I'll get my character info up soon. If you're interested submit yours for approval AFTER READING THE RULES below. Be sure to describe you characters mutant abilities under 'equipment'.

Toggle Rules

  • Read through the OOC every now and then. We might be discussing something that pertains to your character.
  • No too super-overpowered mutants please. In general the more powerful a mutant's ability, the more it should simultaneously have a negative effect on him or her. The focus of this RP isn't totally combat so try to pick an interesting power, not just one that can waste a bunch of bad guys.
  • Generally your character shouldn't be in perfect control of his or her powers yet.
  • No using characters from the comics. All the old mutants were 'cured'. However you can possibly have a power identical to one of the old mutants since it's their genes that survived and went on.
  • No Godmodding
  • Be literate. Try to follow my lead as far as post length and detail. Of course in conversation or combat the posts will be short but try to balance that out with the occasional long post full of substance and details.
  • Most importantly NO QUITTERS! I intend to see this RP through to the finish. Anyone who joins and quits will forever be my arch nemesis, both online and (god forbid I run into you) in real life.
  • I may take control of any characters that stop responding, and I reserve the right to kill them off in the most gruesome and shameful way that I can up with.
  • Romance encouraged but don't get my thread shut down by the moderators. Take it to PMs if it starts to get too smutty.

"Ow..." Daniel muttered clutching at his head and trying to blink away the stars in his eyes. He groggily lifted himself up into a sitting position and looked at the girl that had shook him awake. "Hey," he groaned, still not quite all there, "what's up?" He smiled at her. Then full consciousness came crashing back on him in a wave of panic. He stood up quickly. "Oh my gosh, I've gotta go. I've gotta get out of here. They're coming for me." He looked at the girl, his eyes wide with fear. He had seen her before. It finally came to him after a moment of thought, the garage, she had been there when he had teleported. In all the panic and confusion he hadn't really taken in any specifics, but now he took her in, the colour in her hair, the knowing sparkle behind her eyes. The panic was silenced for a second and he smiled at her.
"What happened? I remember something hitting me and then nothing..."
He looked up at the fire escape above him. The ladder was hanging down into the alleyway, nothing more than a thread of orange rust held its suspension in thin air. His question was answered, he simply hadn't been looking where he was going. He groaned, then turned to the girl.
"When you left that garage back there, did you see a guy, kinda tall, shaggy, brown hair, looked pretty tough?"

"You're... You're a human? Natasha heard the seer-like mutant say as she finally looked at the dog-like mutant, not understanding how such a thing was possible. Mimic knew she should be running off at this very moment, Chris hesitating to drive off on his bike for one reason or another, and hiding but this mutant man was too interesting. The fur's DNA indicated that he could change back into human form, at least in theory, and wondered why he hadn't yet done so. With all the anti-mutant police in the area he would be far more inconspicuous than a massive dog but then she found something in his genetic code that alarmed her: It was partially converted to fit the new form, not his original. If the living cells continued in such a fashion then he would be stuck like that with no way going back. Could be part of a trap... She thought, paranoia screaming in her head, Still, DNA doesn't lie. I don't think anyone should have to go through that. Nat was feeling sympathetic for him, her powers not yet stripping her of this quality, and decided to help. She walked over to the creature, bent down to his level and said in as clear a tone as was possible for his nervous stuttering lips, "Ok, D-Dog boy. If you can understand m-me then listen closely: If you concentrate y-you can change back but if you don't then you'll be s-stuck like this for the rest of your miserable life. Uh, I-I... S-suggest you make up your mind qu-quickly." She suddenly looked around suspiciously at her surroundings at the other people in it, standing and considering her options whilst scratching at the already angry scars on her arms compulsively.

Romeo simply stood there, listening first to the girl who asked to be called Mac, watching as she ran off, then to the strange girl who had seemed to be made of metal earlier, and smelled strongly of blood. She seemed to be talking to a large dog, saying something about it being a mutant. This didn't suprised him, nothing did anymore.

"Look," he said, to all of them in general, "I don't know about you guys, but it's getting to be about lunchtime, and I'm getting hungry. I was on my way to have some fun, then eat, but now the fun's ruined, but I'm still hungry. So is there anyway I can speed this long? Maybe get a leash and a collar or something?" When hungry he tends to get angrier quicker, and why he doesn't have any special reason to dislike any of the mutants present, he could find some quickly. "I'll even pay for the food, alright?"

Turning he looked back in the direction of where he'd left the guy who'd tried to mug him. he could hear the ambulence as it drove away, and it quieted him a little. never had he killed on purpose, but there's been accidents over the years. if you looked at his record they wouldn't show, but they still happened. Every part of his life was a cover up thanks to his old man. It was as if his fahter wanted it to seem like Romeo didn't even exist. And now that all these mutants had suddenly risen up so close to home, he felt maybe his father was connected somehow.

The girl hadn't said a word from the moment he had woken up. He stared at her a little, slightly disconcerted. What was going on? With a start, a thought hit him. Is she even moving? Still holding his head, he turned to look back at the street where the dead bodies of the two mutant hunters lay. They must have called for back-up so long ago, why weren't the hunter squads bearing down on him and the girl? He looked up, a habit he had picked up over the years, based on his theory that "No-one ever looks up in the movies."

That's when he spotted the bullet and the assassin. The bullet was an inch from his head, frozen, suspended in thin air. The assassin on the rooftop was frozen in place, his rifle supported against his shoulder. Had he... could he possibly have frozen time? He hadn't even been conscious of the danger, but his body had reacted regardless. He had frozen time.

This is so cool! He laughed at the newest protection his power had afforded him.
"I stopped time! This is awesome." He looked over at the girl, hoping to receive some form of congratulations from her, but then he remembered she, too, was frozen. "Damn it." He looked up again at the assassin. There was no point standing around and waiting for his time-freeze to wear off and for the bullet to hit its target, he also knew he couldn't leave the girl here to suffer that fate either. He looked her up and down, trying to gauge how much she weighed. He worked out, he could probably pick her up, he thought. He slung the girl across his shoulders in a modified fireman's lift and began to walk back towards the alleyway and the garage that he had teleported to earlier.

****

He had just stood the girl up next to the tough looking guy, the crazy chick and what appeared to be a huge dog and straightened down her skirt, when in the distance he heard the whine of a bullet ricocheting in the distance. He surveyed the rag-tag bunch of teens, smiling nervously.

Suddenly, Daniel felt something rising up inside him, something that felt all wrong. He was about to scream for the others to run, but before he could, his body began to swell with energy. He felt his insides being torn to shreds and he screamed. Finally, the energy could not be contained any longer, it tore from his body in a huge explosion that not only levelled the city, but destroyed the planet. Earth was destroyed.

Re: X-men: Genetic Drift

Will have a skele up later today or tonight.

Re: [OOC] X-men: Genetic Drift

3 more day, peeps, until explosion city. yeah, that's right, i'm being an RP terrorist.

Re: [OOC] X-men: Genetic Drift

just have Galactus find him floating in space, bestow him with the power cosmic and make him his new herald. then you can start a new rp with that character going from planet to planet and leading galactus to destroy each and every one lol.

EDIT: There we go, turns out it was all because everyone was frozen in time :P

Re: [OOC] X-men: Genetic Drift

great, that mean when my guy regenerates he'll be lost in space and suffoctating for the rest of eternity...lol..but yeah, unserstood, this is ticking me off...

Re: [OOC] X-men: Genetic Drift

feck it, i'm giving it another 6 days and if nobody's posted in that time i'm having my dude die in an earth shattering explosion that destroys planet earth and kills every person on it.... just to warn you...

Re: [OOC] X-men: Genetic Drift

that's what I was wondering...

Re: [OOC] X-men: Genetic Drift

So what's happening with this RP? Is anyone bothering anymore?

Re: [OOC] X-men: Genetic Drift

Um...yeah, I'm gonna be out of town for the next two weeks. I might be able to post intermittently, but not much. So, I, uh...I think I'll give Dreamland principal control until I get back. If you need to to move the plot along, any of you can take control. Just try not to derail his personality TOO much, kay? He WILL be giving nicknames to everybody. Anyways, his current plans are to head for the black market warehouse, and crash with his computer part supplier. Those guys are NO fans of the government, they make a pretty good safehouse. They'll help me, and maybe a few friends, if you can convince Egide to convince them. They know me, and hate the government. The fact I'm a mutant won't faze them. Hell, they might make a "last stand" style fight if the feds find us. Give my guy a good reason to fight, rather than continue simply hiding. Anyways, yeah, I'm outta here. Try and keep him a bit consistent. Good luck!

Re: [OOC] X-men: Genetic Drift

Hey guys I dont think I'm going to be able to post tomorrow, I'm going to have a lot of crap to do. Just thought I'd let you know.

lolwut? How does coming in peace make someone like a girl? Is peace a wholly feminine concept? I was going more for the whole "assumed-alien" vibe, what with the teleporting and green skin and whatnot, but whatever yo. Let's see how this goes. :P

It was a joke, dude. Hell, she's a girl! Lol...

Call it character development... Ahem, I actually my character is probably the most paranoid, she's borderline schizophrenic and generally nuts. Lol, if you guys want I can stop her from leaving so that we don't have to go the trouble of finding each other again...

Re: [OOC] X-men: Genetic Drift

@Xiphoniii - Originally I was gonna have Daniel captured by the mutant hunters and that could've led to, like, a rescue attempt or something, but then I realised your guys had no reason to rescue my dude lol. Then everyone else seemed to congregate on your "secret" lair and I thought it seemed right that Daniel's protective powers would hone in or something on a group of mutants, cos surely that'd be the safest place for him. At least that's my justification for what's happened lol :P
Also gotta love the absolute clash between your avatar and what's going on in the RP.

Re: [OOC] X-men: Genetic Drift

LOL, I was figuratively dusting off my hands. Just like clicking the back button was figuratively 'running off'.

*Rolls eyes* <--- That one was literal :D

Re: [OOC] X-men: Genetic Drift

lol, okay then. thanks Jenesis, i grew up watching the original X-Men and Wolverine was the only one i liked, aside from Gambit, so it was a natural choise for me :D

and, um, Dream, why did your hands get dusty? is your computer made out of stone too? O.o

Re: [OOC] X-men: Genetic Drift

Ok I turn my back for like a minute and then there's suddenly a bazillion posts? LOL. I like how things are going so far. I'd better get one in myself.

*Runs off to make a post*

Edit:
*Comes back and dusts off hands*
There we go.

Re: [OOC] X-men: Genetic Drift

not in a weird psychopathic way, lol, more in a "that's very Wolverine-esque" way. I'm assuming your characters meant to be a descendant of Logan due to the powers and the last name, so I thought it was very fitting for the character. it was meant to be a compliment lol.

Re: [OOC] X-men: Genetic Drift

I know it's part of your powerset and everything, but Soul_Alchemist, the whole smelling blood on the characters thing really made me smile. :)

Re: [OOC] X-men: Genetic Drift

lol, fair enough i suppose...although i'm not actually right there with you guys yet, just in the general area

(edited)- also, i don't have a gun, i have a phone...i'm calling 911 for the guy, and he isn't actually dying, just bleeding...alot
