Cara Black (Shadowdancer)

Don't be scared of the dark. Be scared of what's in it.

0 · 811 views · located in Marvel Universe

a character in “X-men: Xavier and Magneto Unite”, as played by TurtleSoup

Description

Image

Name: Shadowdancer

Civilian name: Cara Black

Age: 26

Occupation: Music Teacher

Alliance: Ex Villain currently X-Men

Appearance: Cara prefers to wear her own clothes rather than stick to the X-men uniform, never entirely considering herself one of them at all. Usually she wears a leather jacket which is generally kept open to show off the varying band t-shirts she wears. She also tends to stick to wearing boot cut jeans over a pair of military styled boots.

Personality: Although Cara’s past was filled with misery, the friends she made under Magneto and the sheer admiration she had for the man made her drive herself as hard as she could setting herself to be the best she possibly could for him. It isn’t too difficult to see after talking to Cara that her affection for Magneto’s past self goes slightly beyond that of him just being her leader. Cara is also the type of person to hide her own emotional weakness behind constant flirtation and a fondness for… close comforts.

Unsurprisingly Cara has a disdain for humans having spent most of her life under their heel. As far as she became concerned it was better to die for freedom then to live in fear.

Mutant Classification: Alpha soon to be Gamma

Powers and Abilities:

Darkness Manipulation:
Cara can manipulate the world around her using shadow, as long as the objects she wishes to use are connected to her either through her shadow directly or through a chain of shadows. So if her shadow fell onto a table’s and a lamp’s shadow fell onto the tables, she would be able to manipulate that lamp until its shadow fell out of the chain. Though incredibly versatile this power is most powerful at night when almost everything is within her grasp but in the same breath in daylight if the shadows are lighter she has less control over the object, finding it much harder to grasp. With complete surrounding light that doesn’t leave any shadows, Cara is left almost completely powerless this being the only way to properly keep her imprisoned for an indefinite period. Her own shadow however although effected by sunlight can be freely controlled in any way she wishes as long as it retains its original surface area.

Shadow Dance:
Cara can become a shadow, removing her physical body entirely. This ability however does leave her shadow visible as she moves around so in a light area it can be easy to spot her. It also requires a shadow for her to pull herself into, this can be her own.

Flexible:
Cara had spent many years as a dancer and gymnast before and after she discovered her mutant abilities and as such is incredibly flexible and surprisingly strong given her slim build. She uses this to her advantage on many occasions.

Darkness:
In dire situations Cara can call forth the darkness inside of her and totally submerge her surroundings in pitch black shadow, smothering all lights however this ability is hugely taxing and is only really useful as a last resort.

Darkvision:
Thanks to her power of darkness Cara has incredible night vision, being able to see just as clearly in total darkness as she can in daylight.

History: Cara was born in the then Soviet Union not far from Moscow. Her childhood was less than happy, spent living in poverty with her abusive father often having to make excuses for her various bruises. Her one outlet from her miserable life was spent sneaking outside the theatres in the richer areas to watch the dancers on stage. This continued for many years with Cara often spending hours at a time even in the coldest of nights huddled in her ragged coat watching through a window, wishing desperately.

Like most non-gamma mutants, Cara’s abilities didn’t begin to present themselves until her early teenage years as she suddenly discovered that she could move her own shadow freely. She decided almost instantly that she had to keep this hidden, her countries post-communist turmoil was already causing enough trouble and her life in the state it already was this new development was unlikely to aid her.

Although she had thus far managed to keep her powers a secret one night whilst Cara sat quietly in her room quietly doing her homework she had absentmindedly sent her shadow dancing across the room. It was here that her father discovered his useless daughter’s latest disappointment. His wrath came down upon her swift and mercilessly kicking her sprawling into the street where she was forced to run for her dear life, tears streaming down her face.

She ran for what seemed like hours not stopping until she had reached absolute exhaustion leaving her crying in an alleyway her knees pulled tightly to her chest. It was here that she was once more disturbed as a gang had caught sight of the sixteen year old and were moving in with vile grins. Cara could only scream as they approached but as she buried her head to hide she realised she was encased in what appeared to be thick black fog. Not waiting to discover more Cara desperately tried to run shouts of the gang almost right on her heels, she soon discovered this was a mistake as she ran almost straight into the dead end. She pressed her back firmly against the wall her legs quivering and tears stinging her eyes.

Cara was used to beatings and the gang could not hit like her father but the sheer number of them quickly had her on the floor, kicks hitting violently against her as they screamed “mutant!” and “freak!” at her. She had almost given up hope but suddenly the kicks stopped and the gang was shouting at something else. The sickening crunch as they were killed in Magneto’s creative forte was the only thing that made her open her eyes to the much older man who had his hand extended to her in friendship.

She joined his cause there and then, giving up her life of poverty to fight for mutant rights. Under these influences, Cara became a proficient thief using her talents to easily sneak past almost all known security systems and cause havoc where others could not hope to access.

Several years later whilst in the middle of one of her now well practiced robberies she was ambushed by government agents all ordered to kill, she ran desperately through the facility but they were ready and waiting at every corner, the entire base lit up enough to make her powers almost useless. Surrounded, wounded and without any hope Cara surrendered. That’s when her luck changed as the X-men burst into the facility, the very people she had scoffed at and fought with on many occasions. The X-men quickly neutralised the agents and took Cara back with them to the mansion where her wounds were treated. Here Xavier offered for her to join them an offer she declined but felt bound to at least offer her services until she repaid the debt. Since then Cara has used her past experience to teach the students music.

So begins...

Cara

Cara walked out in the garden her shadow falling against the sunlight, breaking the general idea of how this should work but that wasn't her concern. They wanted her to reprise the role of teacher again. Seriously? She was an incredibly talented thief and fighter not to mention her skill with her powers so they assign her teaching. Oh woo. She thought angrily to herself, kicking a stone as she passed over it. "Poxxy X-men, would've been easier if they'd just left me to the government's guns."

As she approached the gate she was surprised to see Aaiyah outside in the daytime. "Now now. It is very rare to see your beautiful face out in the daylight, krasivyy." She smiled up to the reclusive technokinetic. "Is there something I should worry about or have you no choice this time?" She teased playfully. Cara's shadow swung back to it's proper position as her focused turned away from her powers and up onto the girl. "Would you care for a smoke?" she asked drawing one out for herself. She'd often taken a tendency to playfully tease Aaiyah whenever she saw her skulking around at night fixing whatever it was that ran the mansion.

Aaiyah Ippolita

She looked at Cara a little pulling her head phones off. That Russian accent purring past her lips "no i need to get my work done." With that she pulled her head phones back on to work. When she did her work she did her work. She did not mess around while working nor did she smoke being Jewish that was not overly ok.(even know she liked to puff on a pipe know and then) Even know she did have a tattoo and that was still a big no-no with the Jewish.

She moved to the main gate box out of all her tools she picked up a base ball bat. In one big swing she nailed the box, it took three hits to get it off tearing the wires with it. She cocked her head putting her hand over the box she used her gift to pull the new wires up and to her. These new wires would have a better link up and be way harder to tamper with. She moved picking the new box up and started the hock up. This system worked to a point like the old one but was faster and better. More times than not she just started from ground zero with new systems.

Once this was all done the security would be running much better.It would track guest and people who just wanted to see what was going on behind the gates. If her calculations where right and normally they always where climbing the gates or walls would not even work. She took a breath and turning the new gate box on letting it run the start up program.

Erik Lehnsherr and Philip Klein

"Um.." Adria spoke softly, moving the rest of her body around the corner, hands clasped behind her back. "I'm here for an appointment.." Ice blue eyes looked between the two, then back down to the ground.

Erik and Philip turned around to see Adria walk shyly towards them. “ah! There you are my dear. Please come this way there’s no need to be shy.” Erik invited Adria in a friendly manner. Erik could seem intimidating to anyone that was aware of his ominous past but to meet him in person under non-combative circumstances would surprise a person as to how gentle and nurturing he actually is.

“I’m not sure if you’ve had the opportunity to meet Mr. Philip Klein. He’s also a student here and soon to be son of mine.” Erik said with a great smile. He was like an embarrassing parent telling the world about Vincent and Philip’s relationship. He didn’t care that Vincent was interested in another male. He was actually in the corner of anyone who was considered the social underdog, which being gay fell under that category in Erik’s eyes. They faced a similar plight that mutants did. Erik was also glad that the man Vincent was attracted to was powerful, a mutant, and a good person that greatly cared for his son.

Philip blushed a little as he rubbed the back of his head nervously. “Ah… papa… you don’t have to tell everyone!” Philip chuckled. He turned to Adria and shook her hand with a bright smile. “’I’m Philip Klein, it’s a pleasure to meet you Adria. I haven’t seen you around much. I’m curious to know what your abilities are. I suppose we’ll get to see each other in action in the danger room Tomorrow?” Philip greeted Adria in his thick German accent.

Vincent Xavier

"Am I safe with this? How can I be even nearly safe with this?! There's a voice inside my head saying it wants to kill everyone!" Jonathan replied to Vincent in a disturbed manner.

Running his long fingers through his hair and pacing slowly, Memory's watching form eyeing him from where she had been standing before. Suddenly, he stopped and turned to Vincent.

"What do we need to do?" Jpnathan asked.

Vincent sighed as he recomposed himself in his seat. His body still tingled from touching Jonathan as he sat in his seat. He exhaled heavily as he began to speak. “Well… I think this will not be as bad as the phoenix, so that’s a piece of good news.” Vincent looked at the two siblings calmly.

“Secondly, I think your X-gene and subsequently your body is locked into a defensive mode. This may be in reaction to your own fears and anxieties. Your X-gene could possibly be trying to prevent you from getting hurt but heading into overdrive in order to further protect you. It hasn’t reached overdrive mode yet… thankfully. But whatever it is that you are not confronting in your heart that’s been haunting you, if left un-reconciled, will cause your X-gene to fly onto the offensive. Meaning you could possibly send a whole area into a dream, illusion and or nightmare state. Imagine the influence of your power spreading beyond your body.” Vincent’s eyes focused in on Jonathan.

Vincent knew that some X-genes were more closely linked to a mutant’s emotional state of being, others like his own were closely linked to his psychological state. “Take me for example, I must keep my mind in a neutral zone. If I slip into a serious narcissism I could lose control and become something quite malevolent. This requires me to check my mood and disposition on a constant basis. It’s not always easy but it can be done with effort. I had the privilege to meet the hero known as Spiderman once. He shared with me a quote that his uncle once to told him. ‘with great power comes great responsibility.’ I always remembered that and it helped me to focus in being responsible for my psychological state, which then helped me gain control over my mutant power.” Vincent added.

Vincent turned to face Memory. “You might actually be key in helping your brother fix his problem Memory. If it is a particular memory that is haunting Jonathan, then you and I will most likely have to help him confront the aggressor. Ultimately Jonathan will have to set things right within himself but he will need some assistance. We won’t know what we’ll encounter there but know that things will get better. Let’s give this some time and come back to formulate a proper plan when you both are ready. How does that sound?” Vincent smiled. Jonathan might actually be on the road to being able to touch others again.

Vincent telepathically said to Jonathan, “Remember Jonathan, if there is something you’d like to tlk about alone. I’m here to help you. Just say the word alright.”

Matsuzaka Hideki

Hideki after his meeting with magneto earlier in the day thought it best to chill out with some shopping therapy. He had plenty of money, being a popular JPOP star, and he loved to shop as a form of clearing his mind. He was a true mallrat if those still existed outside of the 90’s. He thought to invite his friend Kyle Jean-Claude also known as Marvel to accompany him. They both raked up at the mall and eventually felt good enough to return to the mansion.

On their way back the two decided to do a little joy riding in Kyle’s convertible. When they got to the long drive near the X-mansion Hideki stood up and fired off firework like plasma into the air. It burst into brilliant colors strong enough to remain distinct even in the day time. The two laughed and giggled as they continued.

“Kyle speed it up!! I KNOW you can go faster than this!!” Hideki yelled.

“Alright Flare, scream if you wanna go faster baby!!” Kyle replied as he laughed.

“WOOOOHOOO!!!” Hideki screamed. The car sped up and hideki lit the day up with his powers. They were however, going too fast and almost collided with the mansion gate.

“Oh shit! Flare get down and buckle up fast! I gotta hit the brakes!!” Kyle yelled. Hideki quickly plopped down into his seat and click his safety belt. Kyle slammed the brakes moments before they could slam into the mansion gates. They came to a stop, however the plasma flare Hideki was holding accidentally flew out of Hideki’s hand and exploded on impact with the gate. To make matters worse Aliyah the school technician and Cara, the Music teacher, were right there to witness/ survive it all.

“Uh… sorry ladies...” Hideki said sheepishly.

Aaiyah Ippolita



Aaiyah eyes shifted behind the goggles hearing the brakes screaming. Her hand move up with the engine being something to do with technology she could turn it off making sure there was no harm done. She did not look overly happy with them and that fact showed even behind the goggles. With as much as she stayed away from others no one really new her. She pulled the video up of there little game and showed them not only speeding but using there gifts. She was hard to read one had to wounder her not saying anything to her saying something was worse.

Slowly found the words she wanted and that Russian tone sound like she was going to skin the two of them. "You could have been seen.....what would you have done if that where to happen? By doing things like this you attract unwanted attention. Not only that you could have hurt someone badly or" She paused. "Or worse killed someone......" She put her hands on the hood of the car only to have smoke start to come from under the hood she fried the car. "NOW, put it back" She hissed picking her tools up. With that she walked of mumbling in Russian. She did not care how they got the car back to where it need to be.

She was thankful that she did not do a big shift, that was never fun and it hurt. To top it off the after math she hated more the bigger the shift the worse it was. She told no one about this and keep it very well hidden. once back in side she moved to the security room checking the links. Even with as pissed as she was she removed the video of them and there little failler to think moment. She may have been hard but she still knew what it was like to pull things like that. She sat down running the computer model version of her next big plan watching it and taking notes.

Cara

"no i need to get my work done."

Cara shook her head, stubborn girl. "Fine, suit yourself. But I hope you realise I'm going to stand here and talk to you until you talk back?" she answered watching the techno reconstructing the systems, it wasn't the most exciting thing to watch but it definately sounded better then teaching. Once the lights began to glow within the box Cara reached out to the girls shadow to remove her headphones before the screech of tires caught her ears.

She stepped back into the shadows as Hideki's flare collided with the gate, best not to get blown to pieces by a student. The smell of smoke quickly announcing their stop. "Now now Aaiyah, what if they were seen? Who cares? There is nothing to say they cannot see us. Besides, Xavier encourages interacting with them." She smiled taking a drag from her cigarette, turning her gaze to Hideki, "Though a certain amount of care should be taken in these things." She rolled her eyes as Aaiyah, stalked back to the mansion. "Don't worry about her. She's hardly miss perfect herself." she said noticing Hideki's unwary look. "But it would probably be a good idea to go and explain to Xavier why he needs to replace his gates."

She walked closer to the car and leant against the door panel, "How about a lift?" she asked sexily, taking a drag from her cigarette. "Then I shall escort you both to Xavier." She winked, just as the boys could have got excited.

Matsuzaka Hideki and Kyle Jean-Claude

Aaliyah showed the boys angrily video footage of their little joy ride and scolded them for it. "You could have been seen.....what would you have done if that where to happen? By doing things like this you attract unwanted attention. Not only that you could have hurt someone badly or" She paused.

“Well… there was nobody around really, or so it seemed and I’m practically indestructible… I don’t know about pretty boy Hedeki here…” Kyle began before Aaliyah continued.
"Or worse killed someone......" Aaliyah put her hands on the hood of the car only to have smoke start to come from under the hood she fried the car.

"Now now Aaiyah, what if they were seen? Who cares? There is nothing to say they cannot see us. Besides, Xavier encourages interacting with them." Cara smiled taking a drag from her cigarette, turning her gaze to Hideki, "Though a certain amount of care should be taken in these things."

"NOW, put it back" Aaliyah hissed picking her tools up. With that she walked of mumbling in Russian.

Kyle rolled his eyes as he looked at the damage done to his French convertible. “My car… why did she have to do that?! (Begins cursing in French.)”

"Don't worry about her. She's hardly miss perfect herself." she said noticing Hideki's unwary look. "But it would probably be a good idea to go and explain to Xavier why he needs to replace his gates."

“Yeah… you’ve got a good point there. Thanks for being cool about all of this Miss Cara.” Hideki replied to Cara.

She walked closer to the car and leant against the door panel, "How about a lift?" she asked sexily, taking a drag from her cigarette. "Then I shall escort you both to Xavier." She winked, just as the boys could have got excited.

The boys did get excited and just as quickly got dampened in their joy. “Alright… “Hideki replied dryly. They had the car moved to the garage and Kyle began to ponder about fixing his damaged vehicle.

“So Miss Cara, do you plan to take part in Danger Room training tomorrow? I think it would be pretty fun. We all have powers but rarely do we get to see each other showcase them.” Hideki said in a chipper manner.

Kyle chimed in, “Yeah… after today’s fiasco with Aaliyah screwing up my engine, I’m going to need a nice release.”

Cara Black

"Yeah… you’ve got a good point there. Thanks for being cool about all of this Miss Cara.”

"Not at all. This is after a school to learn how to use your powers after all. It would be very unfair of me as a fellow mutant to discipline you for lack of control, it is if anything a reason for the Danger room to become active again." Considering her Russian heritage, Cara spoke surprisingly good English though her thick accent always sounded through her words.

She smiled sweetly as she hopped into the back seat of the car, still puffing on her cigarette. "So I believe that pushing is required. Yes?"

Cara was sitting on a work bench, puffing away on her cigarette as she watched the boys attempt to diagnose the car. "Of course I shall. After all besides the Professor and Magneto I am the only one within the mansion who has been in combat before." she exhaled her lungful of smoke. "I'm just glad that they're finally seeing that unless you are taught how to handle yourself, then when the humans come to attack us you need some way to defend yourself." She smiled slightly darkly. "Though I am of course not supposed to say such things, I personally think that unless you are all taught how to fight then you are in great danger."

She jumped down from the surface and flicked her cigarette to the floor, stubbing it as she landed. "Come along then, malʹchiki. I think it is best we go and speak with Xavier about the gate problem." Her voice falling easily back into her native tongue. "Do not forget to offer to replace it." she added as she walked through the door leading back into the mansion.

As they approached Xavier's office Cara stood at the door a smile on her lips, knocking quietly. "Professor, there are some boys here to see you. Are you busy?" she asked through the door. "They have something to tell you." she stated through the door.

Charles sat watching Aidan greet Clair. He knew to keep a close watch on Aidan and probe his mind for what he would say next. If Aidan let the wrong thing escape his lips he could cause a monument of trouble. Charles had to be ready.

“Hello my dear. Please explain to me more specifically your desire. I will say the word and it shall be done.” Aidan said to Claire as he bent down on one knee and kissed her hand in a gentlemanly manner.

The atmosphere seemed to fill with a thickness of energy. Then the three heard a knocking on the door. "Professor, there are some boys here to see you. Are you busy?" Cara asked through the door. "They have something to tell you." she stated through the door.

Aidan slowly turned around to glare at the door in an irritated manner. He hated anything to interrupt him seeing as that he thought he was more important than most everything else. He gave Charles a composed yet subliminally annoyed smile. “Well… aren’t we busy Charles.” Aidan sneered.

Charles nervously smiled as he looked at Aidan. “My apologies old friend.” He then turned towards the door. “Please come in.”

Hideki, Kyle and Cara entered the room. “Sorry to interrupt you professor. We have a little confession to make. Kyle and I did a little joy riding and I accidentally blew a hole in the gate with an explosive plasmoid flare. We’re really sorry and will offer to pay for the damages.” Hideki said to the professor apologetically.

Aidan stood to his feet and turned halfway toward Charles. “Charles won’t you introduce us please?”

“Yes indeed. Aidan this is Hideki Matsuzaka, Kyle Jean-Claude, and Cara Black. Hideki and Kyle are students here and Cara is our music teacher. Cara, Kyle, Hideki, this is Aidan O’Doherty an associate of mine and specially gifted mutant.” Charles introduced the group.

Kyle thought Aidan looked pretty suave. “Especially gifted? What is it that you can do?”

“How about I show you instead?” Aidan said with devilish grin. He looked over to Hideki and spoke, “I’m sorry young man but we’ll be getting to know each other rather intimately.” Hideki looked extremely puzzled. The atmosphere grew heavy and Aidan began to speak. “Matsuzaka Hideki is madly in infatuated with me. He simply can’t keep his hands off of me and has no problem showing others how he loves me.”

Hideki began to breathe heavily and immediately walked over to Aidan and kissed him on the lips. He immediately began to make out with the man. Kyle couldn’t believe his eyes. Aidan returned the controlled Hideki’s kisses. Charles had had enough of Aidan’s little display. He telepathically undid the forces that urged Hideki causing Hideki to snap out of the “Spell”.

Hideki, now out of Aidan’s power, looked the man in the eyes frightened and embarrassed. What he felt was very real and almost undeniable yet it was brought on by Aidan’s mere words. “I’m speechless.” Hideki said, still inches from Aidan’s face.

Aidan licked his lips, “’It’s been a real pleasure Mr. Matsuzaka. We must do it again sometime.” He said.

“Whoa…” Kyle replied.

Charles looked fairly upset. “I don’t appreciate you toying with my students like that Mr. O’Doherty.” He said in an authoritative tone.

“I’m sorry Charles. I simply wanted to showcase my power for Kyle here, and to get to know Mr. Matsuzaka a little better at the same time. Please forgive me. I’ll fix the gate they damaged as a show of my apology.” Aidan said to Charles.

Aaiyah Ippolita


She moved out of the room holding the Jar of pickled haring she moved to the head masters office moveing in the slow matter she was good at. She always seemed to time things just right when things came down to it. She moved leaning on the door frame of Charles office door popping another peace of fish on her mouth. Her goggles still on and her head phones around her neck.

She looked at the doctor and did not like him right off the bat but said nothing. She looked at the two young men before she spoke. " P.C I asked them to take the gate down that was my falt. I am going to put the new one in tonight that will open when activated, so the blame is on me" She pushed away from the door frame. "So dumb monkeys you going to help me finish or am I on my own I need another set of hands?"

Cara

Cara raised an eyebrow at the Irishman's use of his power, he definately seemed like one to watch. "Things are so much simpler in Russia." she thought to herself as everyone in the room added their determinations to fix the gate, it's not like the gate changed much anyway, if the Professor had his way he'd invite the humans in and let them slaughter everyone inside the complex before allowing anyone to defend themselves. "Forgive me for intruding Professor, I shall leave you to your meeting." She turned to the guest and gave a nod. "Do svidaniya, Mr O'Doherty."

She winked at Aayiah as she passed her at the doorway, "Приходите найти меня, если ты когда-нибудь передумаешь, маленький цветок." she whispered as she passed. Smiling to herself she headed off back to her dimly lit room.

Almost as soon as she had entered the room the door was closed and she felt her power flare up inside of her, she had chosen the room for this specific reason, no one else had wanted it due to it's small window that hardly lit it up at all even in broad daylight but for the Shadowdancer it couldn't have been more perfect, she relished herself in the feeling before eventually sighing herself back to normal and heading off for a shower.

Aaliyah, the school technician, walked into the room holding the Jar of pickled herring. She moved leaning on the door frame of Charles office door popping another piece of fish on her mouth. Her goggles still on and her head phones around her neck. She looked at the doctor and gave a slight look of disapproval. She looked at the two young men before she spoke. " P.C I asked them to take the gate down that was my fault. I am going to put the new one in tonight that will open when activated, so the blame is on me" She pushed away from the door frame. "So dumb monkeys you going to help me finish or am I on my own I need another set of hands?"

Kyle rolled his eyes as Aaliyah called Hideki and him “Dumb monkeys”. He was gaining an annoyance for the technician’s attitude. “Ferme la bouche” [“Shut-up” in French] Kyle muttered as he crossed his arms and looked away. Professor shot Kyle a look that conveyed his disapproval of Kyle’s language.

Charles looked at Hideki and Kyle and cleared his throat. “I think that would be a good idea. I am currently in a meeting so we shouldn’t continue to be rude to Claire and Mr. O’Doherty.”

"Forgive me for intruding Professor, I shall leave you to your meeting." Cara turned to the guest and gave a nod. "Do svidaniya, Mr O'Doherty."

Aidan smiled as he looked Cara in the eyes. “Ah~ a Russian! It’s been many years since I’ve been. Good day to you Milady.” Aidan replied as he bowed slightly.

Hideki couldn’t stop staring at Aidan. He was still attempting to sort out his feeling toward the man after the previous event. Just as Hideki and Kyle were about to leave the room to help Aaliyah, the mansion alarm began to sound. “Intruder Alert on the premises! Intruder Alert on the premises!”

“With the gate not at 100% the security system is on higher Alert. Someone might have walked through the gate’s opening without using a key or ringing the bell. I must see to this, once again my apologies Aidan and Claire.” Charles said. He knew all of the interruptions were rubbing Aidan the wrong way and might deter him from helping Claire.

“No worries professor, we’ll handle the situation. You just take your time. Let’s go Hideki!” Kyle said in a cool manner as he winked. He and Hideki charged to the front doors of the mansion, Kyle flying through the hall and Hideki on foot.

Logan (Wolverine)

Logan walked up to the mansion gates holding a large military bag that held his belongings. He was moving back to the X-mansion unannounced. He noticed an opening in the gate. He frowned a bit and sniffed the air to see if there were any signs of an intruder. Unknowingly he was the intruder. Everything seemed calm, he thought to himself. He saw the front doors burst open and two young men exit. It was Hideki and Kyle. He smirked at the sight of the two young men. They were around for about half a year before he had left. So he knew them pretty well.

“Logan-kun!!” Hideki called out. He ran up to Logan and lunged into his arms to give him a big hug. Logan had to take a couple of steps backward. He was really glad to see his unofficial sidekick was doing well.

“Whoa there Hideki! I missed you too.” Logan replied.

Kyle flew over and landed beside the two. “My my… Logan you haunt my heart with your unfading good looks. Welcome back.” Kyle flirted.

Logan, who initially upon meeting Kyle in the past was bothered by the young man’s advances, has now become amused with them. “Yes… I have a feeling that the sound of me saying ‘No’ to you will be haunting you as well in the near future. Hehehe” Logan taunted Kyle.

The group proceeded into the mansion. Professor X, Aidan, and the others meet the three at the door. Charles was indeed relieved to see that the security system mistook Logan as an intruder as opposed to there actually being an actual threat. “Logan! It’s very good to see you again! How was your trip?” Charles greeted Logan with a handshake that turned into a hug.

“It was not as peaceful as I planned it to be. I got homesick rather fast unfortunately. You’re really working some number on me Charles.” Logan replied with a half grin trying to hide his excitement for being back.

“I’m glad to hear it.” Charles replied.

Aidan commented, ”Goodness he’s almost as old as I am. You are most definitely an old soul Mr…” Aidan said to Logan.

“Simply Logan, and something about you bub, just seems unnatural.” Logan replied gruffly.

“Fair enough.” Aidan replied. “How feisty this one is Charles. I’m sure you have your hands full here. I shall come back at a later date to handle our… little arrangement, with Miss Claire here. My apologies my dear, but I must be off now. Fair well Charles, X-men.” Aidan bid the group farewell and left.

Kyle looked at Aidan as he walked away with a slight look of longing. He found the man suave and attractive for a middle aged man. Kyle loved to be around those that he deemed cool and classy. “Professor, with powers like he has, why didn’t you ask him to teach here at the school?” Kyle asked the Professor.

Charles kept his eyes on Aidan as he walked further away from the mansion. “Trust me Kyle, you’d regret that I had if I had. There is not a space in this mansion that could handle the size of that man’s ego for too long, nor a person capable of withstanding the calamity he’d bring upon our heads.” Charles said solemnly.

Logan, willing to switch subject from Aidan, turned to Charles in a slightly upbeat manner. “Sorry Charles if I’m imposing by dropping in like this. I figured I’d make good on your offer.”

“Never do you need to apologize for coming home to us Logan. Actually, you coming at this time was perfect in fact. I will need our combat instructor very soon. I am to be expecting Scott Summers shortly as well.” Charles added.

“Oh… brother. Summers is on his way huh? Maybe I should be on my way then.” Logan said as he pick up his bag in an attempt to leave.

Hideki grabbed onto Logan’s arm as tightly as he could in an attempt to anchor him down. “HEY… you are NOT leaving me just yet! You just got here! Besides where’s my souvenir from you last trip?” Hideki pouted. He was very much like Logan’s spoiled little brother.

“Souvenir?! Like you need one! Every time you come back to this mansion you’re never empty handed. Shopping bags and everything else. So no BUB, I ain’t got a souvenir for you.” Logan fussed.

Charles smiled brightly. He was very glad to feel the mansion become slightly warmer once more. The sune began to wane and the day was drawing to a swift close.

Aaiyah Ippolita

She smirked some at what Kyle said knowing his comment and what it meant. when the alarm went of she moved with the rest and as about to say something when the pups ran ahead. She shock her head and looked at Xavier. That Russian accent purring past her lips. "They should know better be for running a head. Two is not a threat ether its a fellow X-men" She held her Ipad up showing them the video feed. "How ever there is someone else here and that should be looked in to. From what I am picking up they are female, alone and human' Aaiyah had a point with the two running ahead with out knowing what was ahead that was a good way to get killed or get some one else killed.

She moved to go find something to work on not liking being around people so it worked out. She moved to go take care of few things and one of them being Kyles car. She knew she over reacted but she had good reason to. With in a short time she had his care up and running but not only that a new sound system. She hocked the peace on to the car that would activate the gate opening it when the car got close to it.

Once all that was done she Aaiyah moved to work on the new gate building it from scratch she wanted to get them perfect. She drew out with chalk on the ground the lay out she wanted. Not to high not to thick or thin and something that could take a beating or be under attack. That had to be taken in to account. If they had a car or student lose control it had to be able to hold up to that kind of abuse. She cut the rods and bars down and lied them out. Now and than she would move things about and change something.

She sat down looking at the lay out thinking some about what would work best, rubbing the back of her head some. Mathematically wise it would be able to take a beating for a car but a mutant or BFG she was unsure of. Still it was better than nothing and they need the gate so she went off tack welding frist before she did full on welding. No one would see her for the rest of the day.

Cara rolled her eyes at the sound of the alarm pulling her trousers back on and switching the shower off she ran back into her room and opened the window, diving from what must have been the third floor straight into a shadow she rolled herself back into her physical state running up the steps two at a time and jumping up onto Logan's back wrapping her legs around his waist and drawing a small knife from her shin holding it to his throat. "Who are you and what are you doing here?!" she asked darkly almost hissing in his ear, the blade's tip pressed firmly against his throat.

It was only as she noticed the Professor rolling his eyes at her that she remembered the heavily muscled form of Logan beneath her. "Oh, it's you. How funny that we should be in this situation again." she said lowering her blade but not letting go of what had once been her enemy. "Though I'd much rather be on the front." she whispered sensually into his ear, giving his neck a teasing nip before eventually letting go. "I hope you brought me something." She asked sweetly walking round to stand in front of him. "After all, we've always had such a connection." She winked at him playfully, still teasing him as she had done so many times in the past when they had fought as enemies.

"Or are you still bitter that I beat you?" Cara blew a taunting kiss before she turned to lean against the wall beside them, deciding that it would irritate Wolverine more for her to stay, he had always been one to hold a grudge, a pity really. Of all the people Cara flirted with, with Logan she could act upon her words with great passion, especially since Aayiah had always shunned her advances perhaps it was time to find a new play thing, they were technically on the same side even if Cara's heart was never even close to being of Xavier's thinking.

"Oh, speaking of the Danger room, Professor. Perhaps it would be a good idea for me and Logan to give a demonstration to the students before they attempt themselves. After all, we're the only ones here with any combat training." She knew this last statement would be pretty much a tipping point for Logan but there was dastardly logic in her words, since what she said was very true and having fought as enemies they knew each others weaknesses, the perfect example for a fight.

Aaiyah Ippolita

She went throw the video trying to find the person on the grounds. Not all the cameras where up and running in the manor yet. Turning the speakers on she spoke "I think we have an unwanted guest in the house or it is the Keebler elves and i dont think it is the later one. I can put everything on lock down or leave it be it is your call P.C"

She decide to be a smart ass. "dont assume things when it comes to combat. that is the first rocky mistake one can make." with that she would waited to get buzzed back on what Xavier wanted it was his home after all but she felt a lock down would be a smart move. She watched them but my god those cookies smelled wounderful she was tempted to go get one but would wait.

Logan was a little caught off guard by Cara jumping up onto Logan's back wrapping her legs around his waist and drawing a small knife from her shin holding it to his throat. "Who are you and what are you doing here?!" she asked darkly almost hissing in his ear, the blade's tip pressed firmly against his throat. Hideki who had just had his arms locked around Logan’s arm was knocked back by the sudden jagging of Logan’s body. He sparked up a Plasmoid flare but realized that it was Cara. He reabsorbed the energy and watched with a frown as Cara clung to Logan’s backside.

It was not often an accomplishable task for one to catch Logan off guard, his senses were too sharp for most people to evade. However Cara’s shadow traveling made it difficult for Logan’s senses to pick up on. As she spoke, Logan found her voice to be very familiar. He didn’t react as he wanted to because Charles shot him a quick telepathic message, “Logan, it’s alright it’s Shadowdancer. Cara Black now works with us. She’s stand down, but I definitely don’t need you to counter strike. That would turn into something very bad.” Logan heeded Charles wishes and stood still.

The professor gave Cara a look. "Oh, it's you. How funny that we should be in this situation again." she said lowering her blade but not letting go of what had once been her enemy. "Though I'd much rather be on the front." she whispered sensually into his ear, giving his neck a teasing nip before eventually letting go.

“Oh no… not you too. Well you can get in line right behind Kyle over there.” Logan rebutted glancing over at the two of them with on raised eyebrow.

Kyle replied in a sleek manner, “Oh I wouldn’t be at your front side for long, less my bare back was turned…” Logan shot him a look with squinted eyes that replied, “Don’t go there.” Without actually saying it.

"I hope you brought me something." She asked sweetly walking round to stand in front of him. "After all, we've always had such a connection." She winked at him playfully, still teasing him as she had done so many times in the past when they had fought as enemies.

“No one informed me that you’d be switching sides. I would have scrapped the money together to buy you a plane ticket to Genosha. You go as I arrive. But unfortunately you must join Matsuzaka on the waiting list for Souvenirs I didn’t give a damn to find.” Logan chuckled a little. He honestly didn’t expect such a fiasco of a welcome back.

"Or are you still bitter that I beat you?" Cara blew a taunting kiss before she turned to lean against the wall beside them.

“Get over yourself Shadow dancer.” Logan replied as he rolled his eyes.
"Oh, speaking of the Danger room, Professor. Perhaps it would be a good idea for me and Logan to give a demonstration to the students before they attempt themselves. After all, we're the only ones here with any combat training." Cara added.

“Hmm… Well that would be a good idea. Scott shall be here soon, that would make you, Logan, Scott, Vincent, magneto and I the only people that have had combat experience. I will officiate the exercise tomorrow given, you two agree to work with Scott and Vincent as well during the demonstration. The students need to see an X-men team in action.” Xavier explained.

Logan sighed a little. He wasn’t ready to get excited about working with Shadowdancer just yet. He was the official combat instructor so Danger Room training was unavoidable for him. He had just hoped that he could lay low for a little bit in the X-mansion environment without having to do the teacher ordeal. “Alright I guess it can’t be avoided.” Logan grumbled.

Fuyumi phased through one of the front walls of the X-mansion to see what was going on. She noticed Logan and smiled quietly. She stood beside the professor and waved slightly at Logan. “Logan-san, Konichiwa.” She said.

“OHisashi buri Abe-san.[It’s been a while Miss Abe.]” Logan replied. Logan knew some Japanese due to his former stint in Japan. He was still around when Fuyumi was brought to the mansion before he, himself, left.

Charles turned to Fuyumi. “Ah, Fuyumi, would you like to participate in tomorrow’s danger room demonstration? It would be good for you. You would be joining Logan, Scott, Cara, and Vincent. I’m unsure if Magneto will join the demonstration group as well. What do you say?”

“Alright. If you think it’s for the best then I shall.” Fuyumi replied as she looked at the group with a small smile.

The intercom of the mansion began to sound with Aaliyah’s voice. "I think we have an unwanted guest in the house or it is the Keebler elves and I don’t think it is the later one. I can put everything on lock down or leave it be it is your call P.C. don’t assume things when it comes to combat. That is the first rocky mistake one can make." with that she would waited to get buzzed back on what Xavier wanted.

Everyone looked up. Logan thought to himself “It looks like security is becoming a little lax here…” Charles replied to Aaliyah telepathically. “Before you place the mansion on lockdown, I’ll probe the mansion telepathically for intruders.” Charles then scanned the mansion with his mind. He saw the rooms, and by the time he scanned the kitchen he could see a plate of Pumpkin spice cookies and a pitcher of milk. He then knew everything was alright. “It’s alright Aaliyah, I know who our visitor is and they’re no intruder. In fact this person is a long awaited family member of ours.” Charles replied telepathically with a smile.

“No need for worry everyone.” Charles said to the others telepathically.

Vincent Xavier

After Vincent’s meeting with Jonathan and Memory, he went to meet up with Philip. He sent Philip a telepathic message to meet him in the lounge. Vincent while waiting in the lounge for Philip, who had left Magneto and Adria a while ago, Vincent began to smell a scent most familiar. He let Philip know to meet him in the Kitchen. Vincent knew when he entered the kitchen and saw the cookies that Vila had returned. A large smile crept across his face. He looked out of the kitchen window to see the small cottage house that belonged to Vila. Philip entered the kitchen as Vincent took a bite of one of the still warm chewy cookies.

“What’s all this? Something of a surprise for me Vince?” Philip asked flirtatiously. A cute smile crept across his face.

“Actually it’s a surprise for me. Sorry love. I’ll have to surprise you another time. Vila’s home.” Vincent replied.

“Who?” Philip gave a look of utter surprise and confusion. Vincent had not mentioned Vila much to Philip. Vila was somewhat hard to talk about since he missed her. So he kept quiet about her.

“Philip I want you to meet someone.” Vincent led Philip outside toward the once locked cottage. They stood outside the door and Vincent knocked.

Scott Summers

Scott had arrived at the mansion late into the evening. He was greeted warmly by the professor and Fuyumi who met him in the lobby. “Welcome back Scott. I hope you enjoyed your time away.” Charles greeted.

“It’s good to be back professor. I missed this place too much. Fuyumi, you haven’t changed at all.” Scott replied.

“Why thank you Natsu-kun.” Fuyumi replied with a warm smile. She nicknamed Scott Natsu which means summer in Japanese. Since Scotts last name fit’s she couldn’t help but gift his with the name. Scott smiled brightly. “You are just as handsome as the day I last saw you.” Fuyumi added. Scott was somewhat her type of guy, highly structured and something out of a Ralph Lauren ad.

Logan walked into the room. “Welcome back Summers.” He said in a slightly warm manner.

“Oh… Logan? The professor didn’t tell me you’d returned. Good to see you.” Scott replied in a slightly caught off guard manner.

“Yeah my sentiments exactly, Summers.” Logan replied as he leaned against the fireplace.

Charles then asked Scott, “So Scott how’s Jean doing on Miur Island with Moira?”

“She’s doing much better since the Pheonix incident and will soon be ready to come back. Moira advised me to return first for my own healing sake. So here I am. Jean should return in about a month.” Scott explained. Logan smiled silently to himself. He missed Jean greatly and cared for her as much as Scott did.
Erik joined the group. “I see the former group has returned. It’s great to see you both. Welcome back.” He said as he sat down next to Charles. His meeting with Adria had ended and he was ready to find out about all of the alarms he had heard earlier. Seeing Logan and Scott made things a bit clear to him.

Cara Black

Cara moved herself backwards slightly as Scott arrived, he may have began to trust Magneto but he'd had much longer to gain it, Cara had been rescued after Scott and Logan's departure, they probably still considered her a great threat, she had spent a great deal of time creating trouble for the X-men, actually having stolen the Blackbird on one occasion.

She kept quiet as everyone became acquainted but relaxed slightly when Magneto arrived, at least with him there she was less likely to mistrusted all over again, she may not hold Xavier's dream but she still owed him the favour and being beaten into a pulp for her past experience with Scott would make that slightly more difficult.

She nodded when the Danger room was mentioned showing her agreement without trying to draw too much attention to herself, she could handle Logan alone but Scott REALLY didn't like her, not after Cara had made a move on Jean anyway... It also probably hadn't helped the standing with Logan either really. That and when she may have crushed Scott's car beneath a rock slide.

She took another drag on her cigarette the tip casting light on her face, had Cyclops been looking chances are he'd recognise her now. Probably better now then tomorrow in the Danger room, being mistaken for something in the simulation would probably hurt. A lot.

“We ARE to be forming a team soon."

The idea of Shadowdancer being considered one of the X-men still seemed alien to her, especially considering she was once considered along the same level of notoriety as a Mystique.

"Well, I don't know about you lot but I reckon if we're fighting together tomorrow then we best start bonding now. Anyone for a drink?" She offered gesturing towards the kitchens where the alcohol was stored.


((OOC: I know I just broke to laws of time and space there but I've decided to change things and have her never leave the lobby.))

Aaiyah Ippolita

She took another drink of the beer watching the others. " i am only here to see who is here and find out who the other person is and nothing more." She looked at Care "Its rude to smoke in someone else house even more so when others dont want to smell that or slowly be killed by it." She found it rather rude and not ok for someone to do this in someone else home. Aaiyah a messed up idea of honor. She watched Scott and Logan studying them as if sizing them up for a fight or something a long those lines.

"Any ways I have work to do" She turned moveing to do all the up dates and work that was need on the danger room. She had a lot to work to get done that night and wanted it to be done and ready for the next morning on top of that she felt like a joy ride on the X-wing she wanted to make sure there where not glitches on that as well.

One to the danger room she worked on the profiles to do with each person making the perfect training set up with different levels ranging from warm up to full on battles. once that was all done it was time for a little fun with the Xjet and all the new work she put in to it. She ran her fingers of the switch board shivering she could hear things that others could not hear. She hit the flip switches to turn things on hearing the roar and the vibrations. She opened the bay doors getting ready for a nice joy ride.

"I am only here to see who is here and find out who the other person is and nothing more." Aaliyah looked at Cara "It’s rude to smoke in someone else house even more so when others don’t want to smell that or slowly be killed by it."

When Cara entered the room Scott cringed a little. He was made aware that she lived at the X-mansion during a phone conversation with the professor, while Scott was on Muir Island. He had almost forgotten what he was told. He didn’t trust her in the slightest. She made matters worse by previously flirting with Jean Grey, who was at the time struggling to gain control over the phoenix personality. As the Phoenix, Jean was far more provocative and erratic in her behavior than normal Jean was. This worried Scott, anything that threatened Jean concerned him. He was usually the team leader and he made it a notion to keep a close watch on her.

"Well, I don't know about you lot but I reckon if we're fighting together tomorrow then we best start bonding now. Anyone for a drink?" Cara offered gesturing towards the kitchens where the alcohol was stored.

Logan looked at Cara and smirked. “Now that’s one offer from you I most likely won’t refuse.” He commented jovially.

“I’ll go for some merlot wine~” Kyle seconded with a suave facial expression. He couldn’t pass up a chance to drink with those he deemed to be cool. Cara, Logan, Scott, and Hideki were all very suave, debonair, or sophisticated in his social hierarchy. Although Logan seemed socially retarded to most others, Kyle felt that whatever circle Logan was in was indeed an exclusive one and he wanted most to be exclusive.

“I would tell you no but you are of age so you’re lucky. But you’d better not overdo it cause you’ve got training tomorrow Bub.” Logan rebutted.

“Besides Wolvie, I’m French. I’ve been drinking wine since I was a kid. It is my water, so no need for worry.” Kyle replied with his signature wink. Kyle always looked like he was ready to walk down a runway, even if he was dressed in something subdued.

They all went into the kitchen and Logan asked Cara to hand him a bottle of Jack Daniels. He accepted it rather plainly in manner. He didn’t want Cara to feel just too comfortable yet. Kyle slinked over and poured him and Hideki glasses of wine.

“Professor, Magneto, would you like some Merlot?” Kyle asked the two as he held up the bottle.

“No I’m quite alright Kyle. I’ve done enough drinking in my day.” Charles replied.

“I’m with Charles on that one.” Magneto added. He smiled as he patted Kyle on the back in a fatherly manner. He really enjoyed being at the X-mansion. It somewhat felt like retirement. He could relax a lot more.

“Scott?” Logan asked Scott as he held up the Jack Daniels bottle in an offering gesture.

“No thanks. Someone has to have a clear mind for tomorrow.” Scott replied.

Logan plopped the bottle down on the table and quickly averted his gaze from Scott. “Always the straight edge aren’t you Summers.” Logan commented in a slight grumble.

If Scott’s eyes could be seen, he’d be rolling them at this point. He did let out a frustrated sigh. Fuyumi sipped a can of beer as she quietly smiled at Scott. She remembered that Scott was big on water so she phased through the kitchen island and reached into the refrigerator through the door to grab a water bottle. She then phased back through the kitchen island and handed the water bottle to Scott.

“Thanks Fuyumi.” Scott replied. He was glad that she didn’t pressure him because he was so disciplined. Others often found that annoying and or a buss kill during a party, Scott was self-conscious about that. He liked Fuyumi because she was a very relaxed person and put others at ease. Fuyumi simply smiled in response.

Hideki noticed the Pumpkin spice cookies that sat on the kitchen island and took a bite of one. The professor smiled as he knew who baked them.

“These are really good! Fuyumi-chan, did you bake these?” Hideki asked as he munched on another cookie.

“No, I didn’t. They smell delicious though.” Fuyumi replied.

“So she’s home I see.” Magneto replied as he peered at the cookies.


Vincent Xavier and Philip Klein

Vila eyes went wide and she made of a sound of pure joy before she lunged at Philip hugging him tightly kissing him on the cheek like she did with Vincent. For how small she was, she was rather strong. She welcomed him with that loving light that never seemed to dim.

Philip was initially caught off guard. He reacted and returned the little lady’s embrace, “Whoa whoa… ha ha ha! Thank you big sister!” Philip replied gleefully. He was most glad that Vila liked him.

When she took a few steps back she poked Philip in the chest looking quite cross. "You better treat my baby brother right, or you will have to deal with me." She giggled a little and winked at him. She knew Vincent would never pick someone bad and was not overly worried about it.

“I will sister, no need for worry. He’s the reason I smile all day long.” Philip replied with a large smile. He was very happy since he had no siblings of his own, having a sister was nice. It had always been him and his mother alone. He would always look after his mother and now he could look after Vila as well.

"I would like to get a cup of tea or lemonade before we join the others. Do you think that would be something we can do." Vila was not worried as she moved. Her smile never left as her red hair dance about her body. "I do hope everyone is well and healthy."

“Sure. You’re still shy around large groups I see.” Vincent replied with a tiny grin.

As they walked to the manor Vincent told Vila that Philip and he had met three years ago. He told her about meeting him in Germany and them becoming close. They noticed the group had moved into the kitchen and began drinking. The professor acknowledged the group’s arrival.

“Why hello Vila! Welcome home.” He smiled brightly as he walked over and gave her a hug.

“You’ve been away for too long my dear.” Magneto added.

Fuyumi, Hideki, and Kyle were all unfamiliar with the seemingly young lady. Fuyumi was puzzled by her doll like appearance. Kyle was also bewildered. To him, the girl looked like one of him mother’s collectable porcelain dolls and or her French statuettes. Scott smiled, it had been a while since he’d seen Vila. She was a very innocent being, the likes of which Scott didn’t see often anymore. Logan took another drink, now having moved on to whiskey, “Long time no see.” He greeted Vila.

They group continued to talk and drink. Eventually it got later and the professor urged the group to go to bed and rest up for the next day of Danger room training.

~Chapter 2: Danger in the Danger Room~

Professor Xavier and Magneto began to set up things for Danger Room training. All systems were still in good condition and ready to operate perfectly. Aaliyah’s modifications were first rate and state of the art. The professor thought to do something special for Aaliyah given all of her hard work and dedication. She was always doing her duties excellently. The students suited up into their uniforms. Charles allowed them to have personalized uniforms since some of the students complained about the standard training uniform, Kyle being a major voice box of complaints.

The teachers that were to take part in the demonstration were gathered in the danger room waiting for the simulation to start. The students sat in the observation/ control room where the professor could point out things of importance and note to them.

“Alright, I shall begin the simulation set to level 4 when you all are ready. Give the word if you need me to shut it down early. Cara, Logan, Fuyumi, Vincent, you are to follow the commands of Scott who will be the field commander. You all must above all trust each other and be most careful as this will indeed be dangerous.” Charles explained.

[At a government facility far away.]

Bolivar trask sat in a meeting with other researchers and generals. “We will strike today. I want my weapon back. It’s been years and the time is ripe. The mutants Xavier and Magneto have had time enough to train our weapon in his powers. Now we can collect… Our previous set back will now be made right.” Trask said with a sinister grin.

(OOC: A little foreshadowing~ bwaahaha~ {queue the scary violin music} )

Cara raised an eyebrow at Aaiyah's complaints. "Because your previous statement was the epitome of polite." She answered sarcastically exhaling a lungful of smoke. "Besides, with all the day to day dangers we all face somehow I don't think my smoking is your biggest concern in life." she added. Turning her attention back onto the rest of the group as the girl stormed off. "She really is an odd one isn't she?" she spoke quietly, not to anyone in particular, she wasn't really the most popular person in the room right now.

She had that glaring feeling again but this time it was Scott giving her a not-so-friendly expression, apparently his opinions on her hadn't changed. Though it would probably take a lot to gain his trust and even if she had it, what difference would it make. She was hardly intending to stay a permanent feature at the mansion, she'd have left a long time ago if she didn't owe such a debt to the X-men.

Cara was quite surprised at Logan's response but didn't question it. "You see! And you were all set in on hating me!" She smiled passing Logan his whiskey before picking her own bottle of Smirnoff vodka and poring herself a few shots of the clear liquid. "You know Logan I've always wanted to drink with you. No one else can ever handle their drink enough to keep up! But I know you can drink heavy, I've seen it myself!" She smiled, referring to an earlier encounter that involved her following Logan for a number of weeks. She couldn't help but notice the blank acceptance, they were evidently feeling as awkward as she was about all this.

She watched as the others fussed around the cookies, never having been one for them herself she just necked another shot but even she had to admit that they did smell good. She looked up as Vila entered the room. Woo! That's at least one person in the room who I never wronged so badly they want to kill me. It was a morbid thought but it was very true, Logan and Scott had both been in the top three on the list who wanted to track her down and remove her. It was only thanks to the fact she was incredibly difficult to track that saved her on multiple occasions.

After several hours and almost a dozen shots Cara finally said goodnight and slowly walked up to bed, feeling the effects of the vodka starting to hit her and looking enthusiastically forward to the danger room tomorrow.



Cara had chosen to wear a fitted outfit for the day, it had been a while since she'd used her powers on this sort of scale and it was best to give herself as much movement as she could for the training, she couldn't let herself get shown up by Scott or Logan. "Ok then lets do it." she answered to the Professor's call, keeping an eye on Logan and Scott deciding she'd probably gain a few brownie points or at least irritate them if she managed to become back up for the demonstration.

Cara, Logan, Fuyumi, Vincent, and Scott all prepared themselves for the demonstration. The stood in the danger room waiting for the simulation to start. The professor turned to Vila and Aaliyah who stood in the control room with the students, he and Magneto. “Aaliyah, Vila, would you like to join the group during the demonstration? Your abilities would make an interesting addition to the demonstration.” Charles asked. Charles also turned to Magneto, “Erik you are also welcome to join them if you please.”

Magneto smiled and shook his head. “Not this time Charles. Perhaps I’ll be a bit more hands on during the students’ turn in the danger room. Let them see Scott and the others in action first.” Magneto replied jovially.

“Alright then We shall begin.” The professor said as he spoke into them microphone.

The danger room’s silvery metal atmosphere morphed instantly as the lights in the room dimmed. The danger room was no longer a room, but a city scene. There were many people walking the sidewalks, there was snow on the ground and snow flurries in the air. It was night time. The city donned many neon lights. The group was in New York city’s Time Square. The team stood in the middle of the hustle and bustle.

Scott turned halfway to the group and spoke authoritatively. “Everyone keep your guard up and make sure you keep an ear open for my command. Anything could happen.”

“You don’t have to remind me Summers.” Logan huffed.

Scott glanced over at Vincent before turning back to keep a look out. “Vincent, scan the perimeter for any hostiles.”

“Already on it.” Vincent replied. He did a telepathic probe of the surrounding environment, his middle and index fingers placed to his right temple. “I sense hostiles approaching us fast. They are large in size but I don’t sense much else. Probably due it being a simulation. I could cheat and read my father Erik’s mind to find out the protocol Father X is using.” Vincent said with a sarcastic smirk.

“We are NOT cheating Xavier!” Scott scolded. He usually called Vincent by last name only when he was getting on him for not taking things seriously. Vincent liked to make light of things often. Scott was counter opposite of this mentality.

“Will you two shut-it up! I smell something.” Logan huffed at Scott and Vincent. “I smell heavy metal. It’s been a while but I know the smell anywhere… Sentinels!”

Just then five large sentinel robots appeared towering over the surrounding buildings. The approached the group, each footstep heavy and earth shaking like a giant’s foot. They were indeed iron giants and highly dangerous. The professor had explained to the group that even though this was a simulation, it was very dangerous and could lead to serious injury.

“Try not to get surrounded and cornered! And do NOT take a direct shot from them! Logan’s about the only one of us who’d be able to get up from a shot like that.” Scott ordered.

The people in the scene ran and panicked as if they were real. “MUTANT LIFE SIGNATURE DETECTED. APPREHEND AND ELIMINATE.” The sentinels said in unison.

“Apprehend THIS!!!” Scott yelled as he released an optic blast at the chest of one of the sentinels, causing the robot to fall backward. “X-men take them out!” Scott shouted.

The group scattered. Two sentinels shot beams at Fuyumi and she on instinct phased. The beams went straight through her without any harm to her. She smiled innocently at the robots. She then ran toward one of the two robots and as she got closer she began to walk on the air as if climbing stairs. She call this ability air walking. As soon as she got on the level with the sentinel’s blasting arm she jumped through the arm causing the arm to fritz out. Phasing through electronic matter often caused disruption within the system. The blaster was disabled. As Fuyumi reached the ground she phased through and rose back up as if riding an elevator through the floor. “Shall we go again?” She said quietly.

Wolverine jumped up to one of the robots at chest level, claws extended, and began to tear into the machine. The Sentinel stumbled backward but did not fall just yet. He grabbed Wolverine and threw him toward a large neon sign. Psionic (Vincent) using his telekinesis stopped wolverine just before colliding with the sign.

“I owe ya one Psi!” Wolverine yelled.

“I receive payment in many formats Logan!” Psionic responded with a laugh. Just then the same sentinel that threw Wolverine shot a constricting chord around Psionic, causing him to lose focus dropping Wolverine to the ground. “Shit!” He reacted. Psionic shifted into metal form, where his strength is increased and with some effort, managed to break his bindings.

Scott after blasting away at the sentinel he originally targeted, shouted to the other members, “Let’s keep it together X-men!!!”

Phillip watched the session from the control room wishing he was there to help Vincent himself. But he had to realize that he wouldn’t always be there to protect Vincent so sitting this one out was a test for him as well. He looked around at the other students observing the battle. Kyle and Hideki seemed to be eager to get their turn. Jonathan and Memory were a bit harder to read than Hideki and Kyle. He hopped that all would go well. Magneto stepped beside Philip and placed his hand on Philip’s shoulder.

“I should have insisted that you be a part of the demonstration. I believe whole heartedly that you are ready my son in law.” Magneto said to Philip with a kind smile.

Magneto had really taken to Philip as family. He did indeed have his own son Vincent and Vincent’s older brother Pietro, also known as Quicksilver. Magneto was never really as proud of Pietro as he was of Vincent. Pietro much resented Vincent for this special treatment by their father, however he thus battles with himself on the subject of how to treat Vincent when he is around. Pietro left the X-mansion shortly after Magneto and the Brotherhood joined forces with the X-men. He took most of the Brotherhood mutants with him. They are technically allies of the X-men at this point but they could be persuaded otherwise given the right incentive.

“No worries papa. I’ll have my chance yet.” Philip replied with a cool grin.

Vila

She shock her head. "If it is ok I will sit this one out, two i am not dressed to go in there at the moment" Vila had a point with that, a sun dress was not a good thing to wear in the danger room. "along with that I dont know if i still have my uniform and gear." Vila was not even sure she still had the uniform how ever she still had the gear. The wonderful two in one light weight but strong metal staff that also could become a water staff that Erik gave her.

Vila blinked when they handed her a box with an updated uniform. She left the room for a little bit and came back with it on. The special weapons she used with each of the fighting styles she knew. She felt strange to be back in uniform long and elgent made to with stand her ability and assets. Her finger tips traced the mask that she new to well

Vila took set to watch the others, she hated fighting but knew she had to get over that even more with the storm that would be coming. Vila's normal smile was gone and she looked focused no longer having that ditsy happy feel to her. Even with it being training Vila gave it her full attention.

Vila knew these metal monsters well and shivered a little. They where no cake walk to take one and they way where almost unstoppable could give one nightmares. As long as the worked as a team and did not brake away from that she new they would be fine, but still it made Vila uneasy.

Aaiyah Ippolita

She shrugged slowly standing up she made her way down. She could handle most things but it if was technology it would be in her ball park and she was hoping for something that would play in her hands. When P.C brought up the sentinel she new this was going to be fun. She smirked some popping her neck, she was ready for this.

Once things started she moved to get her self to higher ground and some where that would be a little bit more safe. She twisted one of the lenses of her goggles scanning one of the sentinel. She got the info she need and shut her eyes clearing her mind. Slowly she started to take control of the sentinel. It was rocky at first but she new she would not be able to hold for to long =, she new it would re-wright its program still a little bit of time was better than nothing.

With in a two minutes Aaiyah had control over it. She smirked when the sentinel did her biding and moved from her spot she went after one of the other sentinels with the one she had control over. Take two down with one stone. Simple yet it worked, how ever it took a lot more than what was normal for her to do. They locked in battle doing damage to one another how ever Aaiyah was giving her self a bloody nose from this. She new she was hitting her braking point.

Every time she did something this big it effected her body and not always for the best. Still it was worth it that feeling of having control over a sentinel, bending it to her will. Her plan did not go 100% her way, she took out one and did a lot of damage to the other. Still that was better than nothing. It made the other one much easier to take down.

Cara Black

Shadowdancer smiled darkly as the sentinels approached, she might not have had A.I.'s advantage over the machine's computer system but sentinels were big and as such they cast an even bigger shadow, it couldn't have been more suited for Shadowdancer. She outstretched her hands her shadow falling across the shadows behind her joining her the link of shadow spanning almost the entire city, she tugged at the sentinel via it's shadow before eventually the great machines head pulled away from the rest of it's body.

She asserted all of her energy into the now floating head, sending it flying across at another of the great machines, not destroying the second but smashing the first's head into it's would at least block it's vision giving her enough chance to phase into the shadow beside her, when the second sentinel had cleared the crumpled machine from it's now buckled and cracked head it searched for where she had gone. Whilst she was actually still stood in front of it, searching through the shadows cast on the floor for the one she wanted, when she eventually found it she brought herself back to a physical state and smiled. From within one of the cracks in the sentinel's face, a cable that was obviously of some importance pulled from it's face, sparking as it tore out and down to the floor the Sentinel it came from soon following it.

As she turned around she saw a sentinel's cable hurtling towards her, grabbing hold of her foot and lifting her upside down, she reached out with her power once more and released herself, extending the sentinel's probe and dropping herself to the floor, phasing into a shadow to break her fall, as she rolled back into the light she twisted reached out to a nearby scaffold pole from a building, sending it hurtling towards the sentinel and smashing a hole through it's chest, bringing the scaffolding around the building crashing down onto the ground., the great dust sheets fluttering in the wind as the tubed structure fell noisily to the ground.

She felt the glare from Cyclops on the back of her head again for her actions but she didn't have chance to make a response before she saw the flash of a sentinel's weapon hurtling towards her, she flipped herself out of the way, just barely missing the laser.

Philip noticed Adria run into the control room in a hurry. She was late and apologetic to the professor. Philip gave her a somewhat goofy smile as he silently observed her entrance. She reminded him of himself when he was younger and often late for school back in Germany. Life was simple then, just him and his sweet little mother. Life wasn’t bad now but it seemed faster paced than before. Philip waved at Adria and mouthed out the word “Hey.”

Charles turned and smiled at Adria. “Better late than never Miss Wateria.” Charles said to the young student.

Magneto also smiled. He was afraid that she wasn’t going to show up. “I’m glad you didn’t miss your half of the session. You’ll get to work with me.” Magneto grinned. He knew that he had a certain reputation amongst the students at the school. Many knew they could trust his without doubt but that didn’t stop them from being nervous around him. He was like a strict father figure to most at the school where as Charles seemed more gentle typically. Magneto somewhat embraced this reputation.

Kyle, while listening in, felt this was the perfect opportunity to mess and flirt with Magneto. He found Magneto to be pretty attractive for an older guy. “So… will I get to work really close with the master of magnetism too?” He said as he walked his fingers up Magneto’s chest flirtatiously.

Magneto, using his power, pulled a metal chair over to knock into Kyle’s back softly. “Most certainly. I will keep a VERY close watch on you, always…” Magneto responded in a purposely sinister tone complete with a dark snicker. Kyle chuckled as well but nervously.

Philip, being the prankster that he is, created a tiny “time bomb” that was no larger than one’s pinky finger and flicked it into Kyle’s hands. It was pretty harmless and would only sting not truly hurt Kyle. Kyle caught it not realizing what it was and upon revelation he quickly fumbled it, sending flying toward the control board. The explosive popped like a noise maker on the fourth of July and created enough impact to activate a level ten difficulty change.

Danger Room

Scott wasn’t too please at the damaged Cara’s battles caused. “I should have thought to tell them to try to minimize property damage…” He thought to himself before blasting at the sentinel that targeted Cara.

Fuyumi noticed the heavily damaged sentinel that Aaliyah combated and ran toward it. She touched the foot of the robot and then began to phase downward into the ground causing the robot to sink downward as well. The sentinel was waist deep into the ground and stuck. Fuyumi phased back to the grounds surface and then dove through the sentinel’s head causing the system to malfunction and shut down. This made her pretty tired. Phasing something so large usually placed considerable strain on her. She then flopped to the ground panting. Levitated over to Fuyumi to watch her back while she recomposed herself.

It seemed like the session was coming to a close as the sentinels were almost taken down. Just then the voice of the Danger Room operating system sounded. “Warning difficulty level increased. Warning difficulty level increased. Level raised from level 4 to level 10. Please be advised. “

Vincent gave a look of confusion. “Cyclops, I know you like a challenge but Don’t you think level ten is just trying to get us killed!?” Vincent questioned sarcastically.

“I didn’t order a level increase!” Scott replied. Just then about 30 sentinels dropped in on the scene all ready to attack. Three sentinels shot at Aaliyah, Vincent, and Fuyumi. Fuyumi quickly grabbed hold of Vincent and Aaliyah and bean to phase the three of them so that the blasts would not harm them.

Several sentinels shot beams at Logan causing him to duck and dodge frantically. He eventually took two shots to the chest and was launched into a brick wall. More sentinels approached Cyclops and he blasted their heads off but there were simply too many to handle. Another two sentinels shot beans at Cara. Scott reacted fast, “SHADOWDANCER!! Watch out!!” Scott yelled as he leaped out and tackled her out of harm’s way. The two lay together on the ground as several sentinels closed in on them ready to attack. Scott laid his body over Cara’s in preparation to take the hit and protect her. However the system shut down and the sentinels simply faded away out of existence. The holograph ended and the danger room returned to normal.

Professor X’s voice could be heard over the intercom. “My apologies team, we ran into technical difficulties in the control room. Are you all alright?”

“Do we LOOK alright Professor?” Logan huffed as he slowly sat up, his healing factor patching up that last of his injuries. His body was healed but his uniform was blasted open at the chest.

Philip was scolded by Magneto and Xavier for horsing around in the control room. He scratched his head and smiled nervously. “Once again, I apologize everyone. I didn’t mean to cause such trouble.” His German accent decorating his words.

Scott looked at Cara nervously. He reacted out of a protective instinct earlier and now where was he, laying over the body of the woman that annoyed him thoroughly. “I… Uh… You alright?” Scott said nervously as he slowly sat up and stood to his feet.

Cara Black

Raising an eyebrow at the training rooms warning, Shadowdancer clicked her neck putting her fists up in taunting fashion. "Bring it on you bastards!" she shouted out clearly enjoying herself despite the danger. It was only when Cyclops reacted that she realised that it wasn't planned. "Still, let them come!" She shouted in defiance despite the malfunction. Though when the extra thirty sentinels dropped in she did have to take a step back, even she had to admit they were a little over their heads, this was quickly turning into a full scale attack as opposed to a demonstration.

Her attention was elsewhere when the attack came. She had been focusing her powers on the sentinel before her, manipulating it into facing it's weapon to the sentinel beside it. Although manipulation came simple to her and it reduced weight of the thing in question; it did take a great deal of effort to force a much bigger object into doing something it didn't want to. She was ready to attack when she was pushed from harms way, half expecting it to be in retribution for Scott and her's previous run-ins but when the beams destroyed the ground beside her she realised he'd actually just saved her life.

The world seemed to move in slow motion for a second as her hearing returned to normal. The high pitched whirring noise that the loud beams had created in her ears temporarily dazed her before the large horrible shapes of the sentinels loomed over them. She reacted in her last resort, her eyes turned black, with no colour or white left at all as she called the shadow from within her to completely shroud them in a darkness that no light could penetrate, it was a heavy ability to use and taxed her dearly but it did give her chance to roll them both over several feet away, moving them from harms way for at least the moment.

She shut her eyes for a moment expecting the loud blast from the sentinels to come at any given moment and yet nothing came, when she opened her eyes again the darkness was gone and she saw the visored face of Cyclops mere inches from her own. "Well now, Cyclops. I didn't realise we bonded that much last night," She winked playfully as though the accident had never happened. "But yes, I'm fine. Are you ok?" she asked as he stood pulling herself up onto her elbows without actually getting up onto her feet. "Though I must admit I'm beginning to feel like we're all a little more out of practice then we first believed."
