a character in “X-men: Xavier and Magneto Unite”, as played by masato22

Description

“Kill or be killed? Who said the 2nd half was an option?”

Image

Image

Name: Agent Zero

Civilian name: David North

Age: 30

Image

Occupation: Other / Mercenary

Alliance: Villain/Government

Appearance:

Image

Image

Image

Personality:

Image

Calm, collected and vain. He is ruthless in his pursuit of his bounty. He is very focused and intelligent. His gentle side is existent but is not often seen by those who are not close to him. He can be pretty smug but never overconfident. He will retreat if he knows there is absolutely no chance for victory.


Image


Powers and Abilities:

Image

Kinetic Energy Manipulation:
North's primary mutant power is an ability to absorb the kinetic energy generated by an impact without harm to himself. While there are limits to this power, North is able to survive falls from tremendous heights, energy blasts, and being struck by superhumanly strong foes without being injured. After absorbing energy, North must release the energy in the forms of powerful concussive or heat blasts. He can also channel the energy into physical attacks, increasing the physical force of his punches and kicks to superhuman levels.


After being forced to join the Weapon X Program once again, North's kinetic absorption ability is artificially mutated further. Now, aside from channeling the energy to increase the strength of his physical attacks, North can expel a corrosive enzyme that is secreted from the tips of his fingers via his energy blasts. Aside from its acidic properties, the enzyme is specifically designed by the Weapon X Program to counteract the effects of an opponent's self-healing capabilities by reversing the process. The more an enemy's body attempts to heal itself from injuries sustained by the enzyme, the worse the injuries become. As a side effect of the procedure used to grant him this ability, North's body now possesses no discernible scent.


Image

Healing Factor:
Upon accepting his first offer to work for the Weapon X Program, North is artificially granted a slight healing factor that allows him to recover from mild to moderate injuries much faster than a normal human. It also renders him immune to most diseases and toxins and also greatly suppressed his natural aging process.


Skills and Equipment:

Image

North is a highly skilled hand-to-hand combatant and covert operative. He is also an expert marksman, skilled in the use of virtually all types of firearms. He has also worn a variety of uniforms over the course of his career.

Image

As Agent Zero, North wears a body armor woven from vibranium, rendering him completely silent as he moves. It also refracts light which renders him practically invisible to conventional detection methods in total darkness.

North has carried a wide array of weaponry including, but not limited to: thermite bombs, hydraulic bolt guns, titanium bullets, wrist-mounted projectile tasers, wrist-mounted plasma blasters, adamantium bullets, anti-metal bullets, and an adamantium-coated knife.


Other information:

Image

Works for the Weapon X program and is an old acquaintance of Logan’s. Logan once asked him to reform and join the X-men. North considered the idea but turned Logan down figuring he’d be better off on the “winning” side, seeing as he felt the X-men were the underdogs.

So begins...

Charles greeted Ryan, “Good morning Ryan. Well we could allow you to join in on the last of the session. Miss Fuyumi do you mind phasing him in to the Danger Room?”

Ryan was estactic! "Oh boy! Thank you Professor Xavier! This is gonna be great!" Fuyumi turned toward Ryan and extended her hand. “Sure. Are you ready?” Ryan reached out to take her hand, then he pulled back. Something was out there. There were car noises, footsteps, and the smell of a large number of men. "Professor?... Something's weird..." Just then a large rumble was heard from outside of the mansion. The alarms suddenly went off there was a breach in security. “What’s happening?” Fuyumi said as she turned to the professor.

The professor quickly did a mental probe. “It seems we are under attack! We must end the session!” the professor asked Aaliyah to cut the Danger Room simulation off. He then did communicated with everyone telepathically.

“Listen well all of you. This is an emergency situation. The school is under attack by a source unknown as of yet. The aggressors are currently outside in the mansion and have breached the front gates. I want the instructors specifically, Scott, Cara, Logan, Aaliyah, Vila, and Ace to accompany Magneto and I to protect the school from the outside threat. I want Vincent and Fuyumi to remain inside the mansion and Barricade then yourselves and the students inside the Danger Room for protection. It is the safest place to hide. Be ready for anything.” Charles’ thought ran clear through the minds of all present in the mansion.

Vincent quickly asked, “Father why won’t you allow me to help you out there? I can handle myself.”

Charles cut Vincent off before he could finish. “I know you can handle yourself and protect others just fine. However I need you on the inside for that very reason, to protect the students. You and Fuyumi can do this important task. Please Vincent, try to understand.” Charles explained.

“Alright father, I understand. But do look after Father Erik please. He can get a little reckless as you know.” Vincent added with a smile.

“I know Erik well. You please look after Philip. He’s much like your father Erik.” Charles replied with a smile.

“I know. Well, off with you now. We don’t want them getting any closer now do we?” Vincent replied in an upbeat manner.

Charles nodded, “Indeed.” He turned to the group . “X-men let’s move out.”

Ryan flicked his tongue out, tasting the air. He could feel something. Ryan tilted his head up, then he sniffed hard. There it was. That weird smell again. It was the smell of a predator. But something was weird. There were more of them now. One... three... four. Exactly four. They weren't human. They were mutants. Ryan ran out into the hallway and shouted towards the X-men. They had to know what they were up against.

"Professor Xavier! Some of them smell funny, there's something strong out there. One smells like ozone, like lightning. One smells like an animal, like a predator... Besides them, there are two others that smell funny. They don't have a specific smell, but they do smell... they smell... well, they smell like us. Mutants. The rest are just men, but there's a lot of them. Please be careful." Not waiting for a response, Ryan ran back into the control booth.

"I've just told the professor, but you should know as well. There are four mutants coming in. One of them smells strong, like a predator. Another smells like lightning. I don't know what their powers are, but they definitely smell different from regular men. Other than that, the rest are just men. Foot Soldiers. They brought some cars, but I don't smell any heavy deposits of gunpowder." Ryan directed this information at Professors Fuyumi and Aaiyah. Not knowing what to do, and not wanting to panic. Ryan sat down. He was scared. This was so different from school, even from danger room sessions. He had no idea what to do. For the first time in a long time, Ryan sat down quietly and said nothing. He waited for orders.

[Government Weapon-X Military Base of Operations]

Bolivar Trask stood in a secure interrogation room, not much between him and Pietro Maximoff a mutant known as Quicksilver. Pietro had been apprehended by the Weapon-X program for his connection to Magneto. Pietro the son of Magneto held an alt against his father and Trask knew that enough to exploit that.

“So we want something that you would be interested in delivering to us Pietro.” Trask said slyly.

Pietro smirked then flashed an annoyed look at trask as he sat in the dark room, “So you mean to tell me that you kidnapped me an brought me here so I could be a delivery boy? Gosh I know I’m fast and all but USPS should suite your needs just fine. Can I go now?” Pietro replied. He stood up and turned toward the closed door.

“You should really hear me out.” Trask added

“Then you should talk fast. I’m an impatient man you know. Meet me at least halfway old man.” Pietro replied in a snarky tone.

“We want our weapon your ‘brother’, if you can call him that, returned to his rightful place within weapon-x. He was stolen from us and we want him back.” Trask said with a hint of anger in his voice.

“Why would I sell out Vincent? Sure he’s not my favorite relative but he isn’t all that bad either. Besides I don’t hate him enough to ruin his life by delivering him over to you. So the answer is no. Goodbye.” Pietro replied and turned around again, however Trask spoke just before Pietro choose to speed away.

“But you hate your father enough to use Vincent as the dagger to Magneto’s heart. I know Vincent earned a special place with Magneto and Charles Xavier the moment the saw him, the product of two best friends at war with one another over ideals for years. The bond of peace between them, is the key to their undoing, the key to your freedom.” Trask grinned. He had Pietro hooked now.

“My… freedom…? Explain.” Pietro replied shortly.

“Well, my accomplice, delivering Vincent to us will strike a blow to your father harder than most others. One you’ve been yearning to deal to him for a very long time I imagine. By ruining him, your conscience can be free from the one who never accepted you and gave you the proper love you deserved. Relief in revenge.” Trask added.

“I’m tempted… but once again, I don’t need to harm Vincent to hurt my father. I’d prefer to hurt him with my fists over such underhanded tactics. I still acknowledge your little experiment as my little brother. So as long as I am given an option, the answer is still no. I’ll be leaving now.” Pietro replied with an arrogant smile. He felt a little proud of himself for sticking up for his little brother even if he was partly jealous of him.

“Oh but you misunderstood Pietro. You never had an option. But now I’ll give you one. You either help me willingly under the satisfaction that you took revenge upon your father, or I’ll experiment on your brain and turn you into such the puppet you won’t even know what an option was if it punched you in the nose. Your choice” Trask finished with a sinister laugh.

Pietro cringed. He knew there was no escape from this place without a serious struggle. He had better play along for now. “Well, since you asked so politely how can I refuse your kinder of offers? Of course I’ll help bring baby bro here. No biggie.” Pietro was compliant.

[Elsewhere in the facility]

David and Victor were speaking to one another as they prepared for the assault that would take place. David stood by a long table prepping and loading specially crafted pistols and other weapons that he was to carry. Placing a gun into one of his holsters he said, “So our secrete operative reported that Logan will be there. Won’t it be great to pay our dear Wolverine a visit?” David smiled sarcastically. He didn’t really have any qualms with Logan but he did consider Logan the black sheep of Weapon X, the one that got away.

“I’d like to tear him a new one for old time’s sake. He’d better pray I don’t run into him. I’ve been waiting to get at him, strike fear once again in his foolish Adamantium coated skull.” Sabertooth commented.

Stinger sat a chair away painting her fingernails. “Can anyone tell me when we’re getting this show on the road? I’m getting bored and if we don’t move soon I’ll redo my nails for the3rd time…” She was quite the valley girl. One would consider her a mall rat if it was the 80’s and the term was still popular.

Frenzy finished buckling her boots. “Show some form of restraint please Stinger.” She said as she shook her head.

Stinger, while applying nail varnish to her fingernails, commented, “Well I hope this ‘weapon…’ has more personality that X-23 over there. She always looks so angry. Such a waist of a pretty face and good figure.”

“And it’s attitudes like this that helps me to understand why Alexander has such low opinions of women. Stinger you’re so fickle…”, Frenzy rebutted.

Trask walked into the room with Pietro. Weapon-X team you have a new member. His name is Quicksilver. He is the son of Magneto.

Sabertooth smirked, “Humph just what we need, someone to show us how to run away. What else can you do speedy Gonzales?” Sabertooth chuckled.

“I could punch you in the nose 1000 times in less than a minute. Among many other things that would annoy you fang face.” Pietro responded. Sabertooth snarled and glared at Pietro.

The team soon after headed out. They approached the X-mansion with what seemed like legions of soldiers. These soldiers were trained and dangerous. Their target was ultimately Vincent and they were to snag any hostages that they could. There was inside intelligence in the Mansion as well. Their informant told them of a sewer passage into the sublevel of the mansion. This was where a portion of the invading infiltrated the mansion. Leading the infiltrating soldiers was Sabertooth and X-23. They waded through the waterway passage and then breached through the floor of the sub-basement.

Trask marched the primary assault team into the front lawn of the mansion after the soldiers destroyed the gate. They marched forward. Taking out the front lawn’s defense blasters. There were many soldiers armed with stun rifles approaching the front of the building.

“Be careful about who you engage. Remember the targets are mutants and are capable of anything!” Trask warned the soldiers. “One of your adversaries is the mutant known as Magneto. He is one of high ranking and is considered most dangerous. You all carry plastic weapons so that his powers won’t work on them. He may be at a slight disadvantage but that does not mean the others are to be taken lightly. Shoot first, and don't even think about asking questions." Trask commanded.

David rolled his eyes and smiled in a cool and collected manner. Frenzy glanced at David with a look of annoyance, “As a mutant, this whole thing actually offends me a bit. David, please remind me again why I work for this pig?” She asked while looking forward.

David replied in a slightly upbeat manner, “Because it’s better to be an ally of this fucked up governmental system than to oppose it and risk being eliminated.”

Stinger chimed in, “Oh… I thought it was because the pay is flipping amazing… or was that just my train of thought? Whatever.”

Pietro was not happy about being seen with Weapon-X. He didn’t want his father to getr the wrong idea. He was supposed to be an ally of the x-men and here he was attacking them. “Great…. Pietro! Look what a fine mess your into now! I’ll have to explain things to father if I can. And try to look out for Vincent. If he makes it out of here, he’ll owe me big time.”

[Inside the Mansion]

Philip was not pleased to hear that there was an attack on the mansion. He was ready to go into protection mode. It reminded him of a time back in Germany when a group of local men attacked his and his mother’s home because he was discovered to be a mutant. He fought hard to expel the intruders from his from his home. The X-mansion was his home now and the X-men were his family, he was prepared to le nothing endanger them. He then was disappointed to hear from the professor that he and the other students were to stay in the danger room. “But I must help…” Philip said quietly.

Hideki and Kyle were annoyed as well. They were ready to jump in on the action. Little did they know that the action was bringing itself to the danger room. When Fuyumi was about to head to the danger room to join Vincent and Vila, the student Ryan informed her of the scents he picked up on.

"I've just told the professor, but you should know as well. There are four mutants coming in. One of them smells strong, like a predator. Another smells like lightning. I don't know what their powers are, but they definitely smell different from regular men. Other than that, the rest are just men. Foot Soldiers. They brought some cars, but I don't smell any heavy deposits of gunpowder." Ryan directed this information at Professors Fuyumi and Aaiyah.

Vila snipped at Ryan, "Aaiyah said to stay here and not leave, and you are going to do as told. I wont let any one or anything thing happen to any one here. If you want to keep your finger dont touch the computer in the control room again. Am I clear"

Fuyumi frowned a bit. She didn’t feel Vila needed to be so hard of Ryan. He seemed pretty distraught and was probably beating himself up about the situation. She kneeled down beside him and placed a hand on his shoulder. “Thank you for being brave and resourceful. The professor and we instructors are grateful for the much needed information.” She spoke calmly and gently.

Villa addressed the group. "I will say this once and only once, This is not a game people can and will get hurt you are to stay back and out of the way. If Vincent and I go down you are to get out of here and to safty... However knowing that you are young and want to take part you will fallow my rules. You will stay in teams of three YOU will not rush in to things, study before you do or it may be the last thing you do. If I or Vincent tell you to run you better do so"

Fuyumi stood to her feet and addressed Vila. “It seems you’ve forgotten about me Miss Vila. I know I am pretty quiet and plain so I can see how you’d miss me.” She giggled a little. “I suppose I’ll take third wave then. I ultimately hope that the fight never reaches us.” Fuyumi added as she folded her arms.

Vincent rejoined Philip. He hugged Philip briefly whispering into his ear. “You did really well out there in the simulation. I wish I could have been down here with you then.” He really should have been paying more attention to the others but he was focused on his lover.

Philip smiled, “Thanks Vince. No worries okay. You’re with me right now and that’s all I need.” He wanted to reassure Vincent and ease his worrying.

Adria walked back over to where the others were, giving a few confused glances. "What do you suppose is going on out there?" she asked, to no one in particular, raising her hand and placing it against the sealed Danger room doors.

Hideki responded, “I’m not sure but I feel like waiting around here is more nerve wrecking than actually being in battle.” He twiddled his index fingers producing tiny multicolored sparklers, his way of nervous fidgeting.

Jonathan began to take off his gloves. "Not trying to be funny here or anything..." His husky voice rang out, echoing slightly into the now silver interior of the danger room as he removed the other glove. "...but you're all going to have to keep your distance from me. I don't want anyone getting hurt." With this, he threw the gloves to the ground and turned his body to the danger room door, Memory just behind him at his side.

'This is what I never wanted to happen...'

Kyle looked at Jonathan in concern. He knew what it felt like to have your body repel and hurt other via touch. He wondered if the professor could help Jonathan like he once help him. Kyle also wondered if he touched Johnathan, would his absorption ability and J’s Nightmare inducing touch cancel one another out. Kyle was curious. However now was not the time to test it out.

Kyle walked over to Jonathan and with his gloved hand he placed his hand innocently, as if he were a child, in J’s briefly and said, “It’ll be okay Mon Amour. You won’t have to hurt anyone that didn’t bring it on themselves by threatening this place of peace. I used to not be able to touch people without hurting them too. One day I went to a priest distraught because there were people in France that wanted me dead for being, what they called, a beautiful demon. I said I don’t deserve to live father, I plan to let them take me from this world. He told me, the Bible says touché not my anointed and do my prophet no harm. He told me I was blessed, and no less than any other child of God. I have a right to life and those that threaten my right to life invite God’s wrath upon themselves being out of God’s order. You may not be Catholic like I, but believe that you should not feel bad today if you must use your strength to protect those that desire to live properly and those that you love.” Kyle looked at Memory with a smile. He placed his other hand on her shoulder and edged the siblings closer to each other.

Vincent could pick up on activity seemingly coming from the area beneath the ground just outside of the Danger room area. Vincent spoke to everyone in the danger room, “There’s someone, no… there are many people armed and ready to hurt. They’re not only outside the mansion but inside as well! Not all of them are human. Students be ready to defend yourselves. Try to remain as calm and as clear minded as possible. You will be fine. Their numbers are too great for Vila, Fuyumi and I alone to handle without your aid. There are two Mutants as well. They are strong and highly dangerous. Do not attempt to fight them. Leave them to Vila, Fuyumi and I. Remember only if one of us is seriously in danger do you come to our rescue. Understood?” Vincent spoke calmly. He used his empathic powers to somewhat settle their nerves. This would help them to fend off attack better. “They are attempting to blow the doors down. And I’m sure they will succeed.”

Just as Vincent predicted the danger room doors moments later blew down after the sound of about 7 explosions. It took a lot to blow down the heavily secure danger room door. In rushed what seemed like 40 swat like soldiers followed by Sabortooth and X-23. The men stood weapons pointed at the students. Sabortooth spoke first, “Well if our little Weapon is right here. This was easier than I thought.” He smirked. “Come quietly and I won’t kill anyone I promise, you can read my mind if you like.” Sabertooth stood smiling directly at Vincent. It was then That Vincent realized their purpose for being here.

“They’re after me…” He said quietly halfway in disbelief. Philip looked at Vincent in confusion.

[At the mansion doors]

Scott opened the double doors and the teachers stepped outside of the building. Scott, Cara, Logan, Magneto, Charles, Ace, and Aaliyah proceeded outside. The afternoon sun was beaming bright. They were seriously facing off against at least 70 soldiers and 5 mutant generals.

Stinger was positioned to the right side of the mansion. Frenzy stood to the left side of the mansion. Quicksilver stood front and center. Alexander and David North held up the rear guard. Each mutant was assisted by a large group of soldiers ready for attack.

Magneto was shocked to see Quicksilver. “Pietro? Why are you here? Have you turned on your father?!” Magneto inquired with wide eyes. He was purely concerned and astonished that Pietro would trade on him this way.

“Dad I just wanna say that I don’t have much of a choice in the matter so forgive me if possible.” Pietro explained.

Trask gave the command and the soldier rushed in for the attack. They all shouted as the invasion began.

[OOC: I just want to first apologize for the horribly long post and how long it took me to post. Secondly I need to re-state that the Characters Stinger, Frenzy, and Pietro for this battle are slightly NPC. More specifically, You are allowed to control them in fighting during this event. However they must remain in the area I placed them (ex: if Stinger is outside in the front of the mansion then you cannot move her inside the mansion. If you want to move a character like that PM me and check with me first.) Alexander, X-23,David North and Sabertooth are NOT NPC. I know originally I said David and Sabertooth were but I’ve changed my mind due to various factors and plot threads. Alexander and X-23 are controlled by Lady Inali. Next, NO KILLING OR SERIOUSLY/ Fatally injuring/ wounding my NPC’s I want them to stick around for more than this battle. Soldiers are fair game. So if you want to get kick ass crazy, demonstrate on the soldiers. Please try to keep the character personalities I’ve established for the NPC’s intact if you choose to hve them say things during the fights. If you have any questions at all PM or OOC message me. Thanks for bearing with me everyone! I hope you enjoy this chapter!!]

Ryan sat and listened. Professor Vila warned them that this wasn't just another danger room session. It was real. People could die. The teachers would protect the students as best they could, but they couldn't be everywhere.

Ryan was still beating himself up about making a fool of himself on front of all of the students and the professors in the danger room. He'd looked foolish and weak. This was not something Ryan enjoyed being. While he was sitting, and pretending to meditate and listen, but still mostly pouting, Professor Fuyumi knelt and spoke to Ryan, "Thank you for being brave and resourceful. The professor and we instructors are grateful for the much needed information." Like that, Ryan's mood instantly lifted. He smiled his big goofy smile at her, showing all of his sharp, white teeth. "Thanks Professor, we've all gotta help each other out as much as we can. I just do the best I can with what I've got." Ryan's head snapped back behind the Danger Room, toward the sounds of running and shouting, the smell of sweat and men filling his nostrils, his ears flicking up at the noise. "They're getting closer." They had breached the initial defenses. The X-men were still holding strong and fighting, Ryan still heard their voices, but the foot soldiers had slipped past. There it was again, that strong predatory smell. It scared Ryan, but he had to be strong, for his friends, for his teachers, for his school. It was his home, had been for years. Ryan didn't like the idea of fighting other mutants, but he would do what he must.

The students were restless, some fidgeted, while most of them just stood there. It was like waiting for a storm. You knew it was coming, but when and how, you didn't know. It drove you mad. Just then, Ryan heard Vincent speak up. "There’s someone, no… there are many people armed and ready to hurt. They’re not only outside the mansion but inside as well! Not all of them are human. Students be ready to defend yourselves. Try to remain as calm and as clear minded as possible. You will be fine. Their numbers are too great for Vila, Fuyumi and I alone to handle without your aid. There are two Mutants as well. They are strong and highly dangerous. Do not attempt to fight them. Leave them to Vila, Fuyumi and I. Remember only if one of us is seriously in danger do you come to our rescue. Understood?” Vincent spoke calmly. Ryan felt a wave of calm wash over him. His fidgeting stopped, his mind cleared. Vincent spoke again, “They are attempting to blow the doors down. And I’m sure they will succeed.

Ryan heard clicks and the adjusting of some device on the back of the door. "Here they come." Seven explosions rocked the building, nearly deafening Ryan, who heard them much louder than the rest of the students. Ryan's hands flew to his ears and he swiftly placed his head between his knees on the floor, attempting to drive out the cacophonous sound. Ryan nearly shouted out with the pain it seemed so loud. The dust settled, and men were swarming the room. There it was. That smell. Ignoring the pain in his ears, Ryan's head whipped up. His nose pointing him toward the smell. There it was, towards the front, barely hidden by the smell of men. There he was. It had to be him. He was stocky, but tall. Clawed like Ryan, with grizzly hair and a wicked smirk. His body was massive, and muscles rippled under his clothes. He was a predator, and he was dangerous. Ryan's ears flared up and his tail snaked out from under his shirt, it whipped wildly behind him, as if it had a mind of its own. His body lowered to the floor, his hands on the cool ground. Ryan bared his teeth, a low growl rumbled forth from his throat like an avalanche. Ryan had adopted a defensive, aggressive stance. Any animal, or man for that matter, would recognize it. It was ancient, primordial, and fierce. Ryan didn't know why, but something about this man screamed predator. He was determined to let him know that he would stop at nothing to kill him. Should the predator make a single move, Ryan would be at his throat.

The predator spoke, "Well if our little Weapon is right here. This was easier than I thought.” He smirked. “Come quietly and I won’t kill anyone I promise, you can read my mind if you like." Ryan jumped ever so slightly at his words. It was barely visible, but if the predator had moved, Ryan would have rushed him immediately, regardless of what Vincent had just said about staying back and focusing on defense. Something in Ryan's spirit, his very soul, compelled him forward. He had to protect those around him from the monster before them. Normally, Ryan abhorred fighting, he would have preferred everyone to have tried to resolve their differences peacefully. However, the predatory smell, and the invasion of his home had removed all limiters to Ryan's psyche. He was prepared to do anything, everything, to keep them safe. It had to go, the predator, whether in one piece, or several. Ryan would not allow him to do as he pleased. Ryan slunk forward, mirroring Jonathan, forming a barrier between the enemies and Vincent. "Yeah," Ryan growled, "Vincent isn't a weapon, he's family. You aren't allowed to have him."

[Inside the danger room]
Kyle was glad to see Jonathan smile even if it was slightly. He was glad to be able to alleviate even a faction of the worry that accumulates when you know your skin contact with others is deadly. Vincent’s warnings came and Kyle prepared himself. Hideki cringed at the sound of the explosions that slowly loosened the Danger Room’s doors. “Danger in the Danger Room. Classic!” Hideki snarked as his eyes remained fixed on the door.

Ryan, after Fuyumi thanked him, smiled his big goofy smile at her, showing all of his sharp, white teeth. "Thanks Professor, we've all gotta help each other out as much as we can. I just do the best I can with what I've got." Fuyumi’s gentle smile grew brighter when she saw Ryan’s brightly smiling face. He was indeed a charming young man.

After Fuyumi addressed Villa, Vila looked at her saying, "I have a different task for you. I want you to get any one of ours that is hurt out of here. They will become easy targets and be distractions for the others, and we cannot have that….or something happen to them"

Fuyumi nodded in compliance however she was passively put off at Vila’s sudden rise to authority. To Fuyumi’s understanding Vila was simply the school nurse and seemingly young looking. Perhaps she wasn’t as young as she looked. Fuyumi didn’t quite recall the professor asking Vila to tend to things in the danger room. However her assistance would be needed. What was seemingly the safer place to be was quickly becoming a trap.

The danger room doors blew down finally, revealing many soldiers and another man of intense distinction. After Sabertooth’s initial request Vincent looked a slight bit worried. Sabertooth smiled sadistically. Jonathan and Ryan shifted to form a barricade for Vincent once they realized who the target was. Philip’s eyes widened and his heart raced. It was as if Sabertooth had said they were after his life instead of another. He’d die doing everything in his power to protect Vincent. He, holding Vincent’s hand, shifted Vincent behind him.

Vincent was touched to see his students and boyfriend instinctively move in to protect him. However he didn’t want anyone getting hurt on his behalf. He was almost ready to accept Sabertooth’s offer and go quietly until Jonathan addressed the intensely dangerous mutant. "What do you want with Vincent?" Ryan, in his feral animal like defensive posture added, "Yeah," Ryan growled, "Vincent isn't a weapon, he's family. You aren't allowed to have him." Vincent’s eyes shifted in surprise to Jonathan and Ryan whom bravely confronted Sabertooth.
Sabertooth Snickered and stepped forward a couple of paces. “hahaha… Family. You have no clue that the man you stand in front of in protection is actually the most dangerous person here. Have you ever wondered why the child of the master of magnetism and the greatest telepath on the planet doesn’t showcase more power than he does? Xavier has restraints placed on him. Strooong restraints. He could kill on a global level with a thought and the proper power augmentation. He should also exhibit waaaay more of Magneto than he does right now. And we all know how dangerous Magneto is. Hell, he would even look more like Magneto physically if the professor hadn’t locked away all of the raw KILLING potential your little family member has. You see, it was my boss who created him, Vincent, the weapon of mass destruction. He wants the weapon back. So I’ll ask only ONCE more… Are you coming quietly or must I rip out someone’s throat in front of you before you see that I’m not to be trifled with?”

Vincent knew that this so called offer to spare the students was a false promise. Sabertooth might actually walk away and withdraw if Vincent left. However, Vincent in the hands of the Weapon-X program meant that no one was safe anywhere, especially if they knew how to undo the locks on Vincent’s true strength. Just then Vila went on the attack using vines to lift some soldiers off of the ground.

Adria Snapping her hand open with fingers stretched out, the water balls attacked the soldiers, putting holes in their guns, tripping them and smacking their skin with a sting, with a few going through the arms and legs. Lifting her Staff over her head, she twirled it, before slamming it down on the ground, much like Vila had done earlier in the simulation. Ice formed in a straight line from where she stood to the nearest wall, before building up to form an Ice wall, separating Vincent, Philip, Jonathan, Memory, Kyle and herself from the soldiers. "Quick! Blow the wall and get him out of here!" She yelled at Philip. "If he stays, we're doomed!" Adria warned.

Philip nodded and began to hurl large time bombs at the opposite wall in an attempt to blow the wall. They exploded with massive impact however the walls of the danger room were so heavily reinforced that Philip alone could not breach them in time before the ice wall could be deconstructed.

Hideki and Fuyumi were left on the other side of the ice wall as they were slightly further away from the others. “Hey! what about us!?”, Hideki shouted. He turned to face the soldiers that rushed in on the two of them. Hideki flipped his 90’s style pink sunglasses over his eyes. [The same type that his favorite Manga character wore. ] Hedeki blasted several soldiers with his plasmatic light energy.

Fuyumi would have phased the two through the wall of ice immediately but the enemy had already engaged them. Fuyumi rushed a soldier, phasing through him, and once behind him she swiftly delivered a strong kick to his head. She then grabbed the vest of another soldier and began to place him into a phased state, making him as light as air and easy enough to lift above her head and throw. The man flew at three other approaching soldiers and struck them [having become solid again] knocking them down.

Sabertooth quickly rushed at Hideki and grabbed him into his arms tightly reverse bear hugging him. Hideki couldn’t react fast enough. He struggled in Sabertooths painfully tight embrace. Sabertooth squeezed hideki’s arms and body almost crushingly as Hideki attempted to use his power. Hideki could only manage to produce tiny flashes of multi-colored light that quickly extinguished before actually doing any harm. “Ahhh…. Eh, let me go you twat!” Hideki protested.

Sabertooth snickered sadistically. “Oh… so cute you are… Ya know, your powers ain’t so hot if you can’t use your hands.” Sabertooth began to whisper almost sensually in Hideki’s ear. “A little bird told me that you call yourself Logan’s unofficial sidekick. Well word from the wise kiddo, people that get close to old Logan get killed prematurely. Seeing how you and Logan are so chummy, I’m going to seriously enjoy crushing you in my arms… Heh heh heh heh….!!” Sabertooh then further taunted Hideki by sadistically licking his cheek. He then tightened his grip on Hideki causing him to gasp almost breathlessly.

Fuyumi after dealing with several soldiers immediately ran over to the two and dashed through Sabertooth phasing Hideki out of the sadistic man’s grasp. “Are you alright?! Oh my god I’m so sorry I couldn’t get to you quicker!!” She said frantically. Hideki trying to catch his breath and deal with his throbbing arms nodded affirmatively that he was alright for now. “Let make a run for it. I’ll phase us through that wall of ice.” Fuyumi then took the two bolting through the ice wall in a phased state.

[Outside of the Mansion.]

The fighting had begun. Magneto tried to pull the weapons out of the soldier’s hands but they would not move. The weapons were made of a non-metal alloy. “They’ve gotten smart suddenly.” He commented in irritation to Charles who stood beside him. He then ripped metal from the gates breaking them down into many metal bullets. He fired them at the soldiers.

Pietro thought this was the time to strike at his father. He quickly ran up to magneto in a flash and punched him across the face hard. He quickly delivered several blows to his father. “See pops, you reap what you sew. And you’ve been planting this ass whopping for quite some time.” Magneto fell to the ground. He wiped the small amount of blood on his lip off. Pietro stood over Magneto and spoke quietly enough so that other besides magneto couldn’t hear. “Sorry father, but I gotta put on a convincing show for them. They’re after Vincent, you can’t let them have him.”

Image

Logan pounced several soldiers slashing at them fatally. They attempted to tackle him unsuccessfully and he took out men left and right fighting viciously. Cara seemed to be holding her own against them as well. She may have once been a villain and an enemy but she was damn awesome as an ally. Stinger watched Logan with a smirk. “He’s hot! Quite the animal. I wonder if the hunk can handle my electrifying womanly wiles…” She said as she sauntered toward the area that Logan did battle in. She blasted him with a serious jolt of electricity and he yelled in pain. “Ohhh so that’s how a man with an adamantium coated skeleton reacts to being shocked… much worse than a normal person. Metal is a beautiful conductor for electricity!” Stinger giggled. She was wise enough not to get any closer to Wolverine having heard many a story about how dangerous he was.

Logan recovered and stood to his feet glaring at stinger, his skin red and slowly returning to its far less flushed state. “You’ve got some nerve lady.” He grunted. He saw Cara in need of assistance and rushed to her disregarding Stinger. Cara rejoined Logan closer to the mansion,

Shots were fired. "Aghh! I'm hit!" She yelled out, grabbing her bleeding shoulder and dropping to one knee behind a wall, sending the pots that adorned it flying towards the nearby soldiers.

Logan tried to safeguard Cara. “Hang in there Cara!” He encouraged as he helped her up. The professor rushed over and helped Cara to make it to a more neutral area.

David North left his position at the rear guard and approached Cyclops who was blasting back soldier after soldier. After sneaking up on Scott’s side he delivered a roundhouse kick to Scott’s head. Scott was caught completely off guard and staggered backward. He hated to be bested. “Scott Summers… A pleasure to finally meet you. Although, looking at you, you make me feel old.” David said smoothly as he watch Scott regain himself. David was much older than he looked. His aging processes were drastically slowed after the weapon-X program artificially gave him a mutant healing factor similar to Logan and Victor Creed’s. So he looked to be Scott’s age but he was more like Magneto’s age.

Scott cringed, “Feel THIS!” He yelled as he shot an optic blast at David. Knocking him backward. David got up with a smile and his arms glowed with a dull red. He had absorbed Scott’s optic blast and was prepared to fire it back at him. David simply fired the energy back at Scott launching him backwards a distance.

“I wish I could actually feel that like you did, Commando.” David said sarcastically and ran towards the mansion doors and entering. He wanted to find the Danger room and help Sabertooth. He knew Victor sometimes needed help keeping on task rather than succumbing to a predatory bloodlust.

Logan spotted David and knew that if David North was present, Victor Creed wouldn’t be far away given that this was a Weapon-X operation. Logan said to himself, “The students… Shit!” He ran after David in an attempt to reach the Danger Room.

Ace

it was dark and cold the skies were red the ground was made up of blackened rocks that seemed to float in mid air.Every now and then you would hear the silence broken by crumbling rocks or the screeches and howls of the creatures of the night. A foreboding hung heavy in the air.A normal person would have gone crazy had they spent even a little time in this strange world that was the complete opposite of earth.at first glance you would never think to find another living being in such a cold and desolate place.but dont be surprised.
this was Aces placr os solitude to get away from earthly woes if just for a little while.Especially when it invovled Alice.with what little control Ace had over her body she made Alice move towards the closest shadow transporting them herself into the Dark dimension.Ace stood on one of the floating rocks it was quite large to.each landong of blackened rock had a forever crumbling bridge of rock. she glared at herself or rather at Alice who glared back.
Ace:give it back now!
Alice:what this body oh no you see i very much like this body besiide i put it too much more use than you do.she snorted.
Ace:fine if you wont give it back ill just take it then by force.
Alice:you and what army you know what happended last time you destroyed everything just trying to get back this useless hunck of flesh.
Ace:i wont matter why do you think i brought my body here.its so i wont destroy anything that matters.im surprised you didnt even notice what i did.
Alice:Aahh so you think you have a better chance here than out there tch.in your dreams little sister.i was always stronger than you why cant tou just accept it your weak and without me your nothing.

Ace ignored Alices words despite the fact that they were partially true.without alice she would have no power.Without her she woould be nothing.but it didnt mean she would let her be the dominant one. and with that resolve they attacked each other.to outside eyes it looked like they were dancing with black silk scarfs in their hands.of course in the real world,the real earth thier shared body was moving within the shadows towards salvation.to someone who could possibly help stop the other personality.but that would all depend on who won this battle within the dark dimension,it was all within the mind so whoever won will be forever the dominant personality.and Ace knew she had to make sure it wasnt Alice.



Note:when Ace is in the shadows time flows diffrently there.what was an hour there would only be a few minutes in the real world.

Cara Black

Cara shrugged off the Professor's aid. "No!" she growled at him pulling herself back, extending her fingers as her eyes turned black, calling the darkness inside her. The wound stopped bleeding after a few seconds as an insanely dark shadow filled the wound, pushing the bullet back out of the wound and onto the floor. "That'll do for now!" it was temporary and although it stopped the bleeding it was only temporary and would also stop her body being able to heal as long as the shadow was holding everything in.

She took a running jump up onto the wall, kicking off of it to fire herself onto one of the soldiers pulling him to the ground with her. Sitting across his chest she wasted no time in smashing him across the face with a nearby brick that had broken off during Magneto's removal of the gate. Once she was satisfied he was down she grabbed his pistol and began to empty the clip into any soldier nearby her. "Bring it on!" her Russian accent only adding to her intimidating stance.

Cara felt another blunt attack, this one on the side of her head. Her vision started going dark but one she couldn't see through, she was losing conciousness and had begun to sink to her knees her hold of the shadows in her shoulder blanking out of existence, the pain and the blood coming back in full swing. She desperately tried to hold onto it, willing herself to stay conciousness. She would rather die then be taken by the government officials, she would never be used as a weapon against her own kind.

Everything went black for a moment and when Cara awoke she was looking up at the sky, there was no sound other then the ringing in her ears. The battle was still going on and from where she had fallen she could see Logan running back into the mansion. Pulling herself slowly up she could see the offending soldier still standing above her, now pointing his gun at her, he was shouting but she couldn't hear him, just the ringing in her ears. He wasn't happy that much she could tell. Another soldier joined him from her left, giving her a swift kick in her side, this brought back the pain in her shoulder and the throbbing in her head, dragging all sounds with it. "Stay on the fucking ground!" He shouted again, the two men raising the guns back up.

This time Cara obliged, getting on her knees and putting her hands behind her head, one of the soldiers pulled his radio towards his mouth. "Sir, we have Shadowdancer detained. We are still working on the others, the weapon is not out here."

"Is she concious!? Don't leave her concious if there are shadows!" Cara heard the desperate reply and when the soldiers looked back at her she was giving her sexy smile. "Don't worry Malʹchiki. Everyone makes that mistake." being unconscious had apparently settled her rampage but she still had that menacing look in her eye as her shadow shifted out beneath her and joined with the soldiers forcing them to drop their guns before her and turn towards each other, banging their heads together they fell to the floor.

Standing up Cara turned to the mansion where a few soldiers were attempting to follow after Wolverine. She ran up towards them placing her hands on the railing and flipping herself over on top of the front soldier. She quickly got to her feet in order to block the others entrance to the mansion. "Mutants only!" she taunted at them keeping her hands low ready to turn their shadows against them.

Fuyumi was very grateful for Ryan’s distraction. She knew that Sabertooth was highly dangerous and Hideki was almost killed by the mutant. She wanted to go back to safeguard Ryan who so bravely fought to help her and Hideki however he made it back toward Vincent. Vila thought so Vincent could hear her. “ I can take down the ice wall so if the others want to fight they can….or I can give you a way out and hold them off so you the others can get away…..but I need to know soon baby brother”

Vincent thought quickly. There was no way he was going to allow his students to risk everything to protect him and he just escape. He responded telepathically to Vila. “No I cannot abandon my students, they are my family and my friends. My life is of no more value than any of those here fighting for my safety. I will not run. Not unless we all escape, and know that Sabertooth will track us down so he must be dealt with. United we stand.” Vincent said to Vila telepathically.

Vila went on the assault against Sabertooth. She was somehow able to land a couple of strong blows however Victor Creed was far from down and out. He landed on the ground and sprung to his feet. He lunged at Vila with almost blinding speed pouncing her with great force onto the ground. Her body seemed so frail beneath him. He raised a hand adorned with his sharp claws like fingernails and prepared to slash Vila across the throat when he had a greater idea. He leaped off of her and landed nearby. Pacing around her he grinned cunningly. He could smell that Logan was nearby…

Ryan dropped down and consulted the group. "Those rocks and the ice won't hold for long. We need to get Vincent out of here, if at all possible, we should join up with the others and form a better plan for defense. Those soldiers aren't anything special, but I'm terrified of that predator and his partner. They're stronger than they're letting on. I can feel it." He said. A wave of fatigue washed over him, he stumbled and almost fell to the ground. He caught himself on his knees and the air rushed from his lungs. He breathed hard for a moment, catching his breath, and listening for orders. At That moment, the ice wall began to crumble. "Where's Adria? Didn't she make the wall?"

Vincent took notice as he rushed to kneel beside Ryan and Thantos. “Thank you Ryan. I want you to be careful. Allow me to look after you all.” Vincent said as he comforted Ryan. Adria made her way staggering toward Vincent and the group. Vincent was worried he helped, keeping her from hitting the floor, her as the tranquilizer put her out. “She’s been sedated. This can’t continue like this!” Vincent was beginning to feel overwhelmed. Too much was happening to his students.

Then more soldiers rushed the group. Kyle and Philip sprang to action. Philip Tossed time bombs at several approaching soldiers they were launched backwards into the walls behind them. Kyle punched out a few soldiers and he flew at another as he grabbed the soldier and flew him into the air. The man struggled to get free of Kyle’s grasp but Kyle was far stronger than the soldier. Kyle then gave the man a kiss on the cheek while activating his absorption ability, stealing the man’s strength and memories. The man passed out and Kyle dropped him. He had to shake off the strange tingling feeling his head and body felt after taking on certain personality traits from his victim.

Sabertooth had the remaining soldiers stand near him. “Gather around boys! Take aim and fire ALL Rounds at the enemy!!” Victor commanded. He couldn’t help but laugh as the soldiers shot thousands of bullets at the group.

Victor knew exactly what he was doing. He was provoking Vincent into action, a quickly executed and rushed action, one that would be less controlled. Vincent rose to his feet and stretched out on hand in a halting gesture. The other hand was raised to his temple. He telekinetically blocked the bullets that, this time weren’t sedatives or stun rounds, they one after another became lodged into the telekinetically still air. This caused Vincent some strain. He not only stopped them but turned them around and shot them at the soldiers, killing all who shot bullets previously. Vincent was horrified at his hasty reaction that resulted in the deaths of about 15 soldiers. “Oh no… what have I done?” Vincent gasped as he looked at the dead men.

“You’ve taken an honest reactionary step toward being who you REALLY are. I can’t wait till you just snap someday. She kids, that’s only a piece of who he is.” Victor chuckled he knew his psychological warfare was working. Just then Logan had found the Danger room. Victor spoke, “There you are…. I’ve been waiting to get the chance to finish you off clean and slowly Wolverine. “

Logan was shocked that he reached the Danger room before David North. Perhaps North got turned around in the mansion. Logan laid eyes on Sabertooth and cringed. “There you are you Twisted, egg sucking, piece of gutter trash! You always liked picking on someone who’s smaller than you. Well I’m smaller, try pushing me!! AHHHH!!!!” Logan leaped at Sabertooth taking him down and slashing away at the mutant.

[Outside]

The professor heard Aaliyah’s plea and knew she needed assistance. He quickly launched a psionic assault on the mind of Alexander Bringing him much mental strain. Hopefully this would aid Aaliyah. She knew Alexander well and if she warned that he was dangerous the professor heeded that.

[OOC: Sorry if I made many Mistakes. I am hyper sleepy and drifted in and out of sleep while typing. I jipped the outside scene simply because I want to go to bed right now… so I’ll most likely try to post again later today.]

Agent Six

Agent Six watched the others as they prepared for the attack on the mansion wondering why it is Sabertooth likes to mess with Wolverine so much. Technically she wasn’t there she was watching them through her observer spirit. Of course they couldn’t see her she made sure of that there was Agent Zero he was alright they would sometimes pair up so she could be his eyes and ears during missions that required sharp shooting. He never bothered her and she was fine with that. Frenzy and Stinger she didn’t know much about them but she did not like Stinger for her fickleness. Sabertooth was another matter all together he was a savage animal nothing more nothing less. And if she could she would have glared at him with all the hate she did not have in that glare. he always bothered her teasing her about her muteness and blindness saying she was weak. But she could tell that it was the fact that he could never really surprise her nor trip her because she saw it all through her observer spirits. And then there was X-23, she consider her as the closets thing she had to family since they grew up together in WeaponX.

Agent Six did not care for the people for the people she watched. She found out a long time ago she was incapable of forming a companionship with anyone. She took her hand away from the glass that she used as her medium and walked over to a glass of water someone had left on a table and decided to check on Trask and his prisoner the mutant known as Quicksilver. They seemed to be coming into an agreement of sorts but she knew that Trask most likely threatened the mutant into helping them. 'Why must men always have to have to fight and kill each other just to prove who has the most power or the better weapon’ she simply did not understand and if she could she would have frowned.

{Start of attack on mansion}
she had gone with the others in a separate car towards the mansion but she stayed in the nearby town. Of course no one knew she there only the chaffier who brought her here but since she creep him out and this was a regular thing for her, she knew he wouldn’t tell Trask about her leaving. AS she got out of the car she opened up her parasol and balanced it against her shoulder and walked over towards a large public fountain and sat down by the edge, placing her hand slightly on the surface of the water. For a moment Agent Six was blind and she gave a small gasp. Her eyes darted back and forth looking; searching for what she wanted and found it a leak.

She knew she was in the mansions water system which is why it must have been so dark until she say a small circle of light and she slowly drifted towards it and for a moment she hung at the end of the faucet until finally she plopped down into the sink. Looks like someone left the water on, she thought.

She reached outwards and her conscious began to form into one of her observe spirits and it grew taller to see over the sink and get a good bearing as to where she was. It was the bathroom by the likes of it and that wasn’t what she wanted. So Agent Six sank back down, then suddenly springing upwards to reach the mirror that she knew was there. And she continued to jump from one reflective surface to another, but she didn’t get far she was finally in the grand hall that lead to the stairs to the entrance and the closest mirror was too far for he to jump. So she slipped back to her real body and began to search again, until she found a good medium. It her view was cloudy and she couldn’t quite see what was going on but by the looks of it she must bee in the danger room control room. She saw everything as well as hear everything to a certain extent. They were in the middle of a simulation when suddenly the alarms went off signaling to her that the attack must have begun. Some of the mutant ran outside to meet the coming soldiers while another group stayed which she guessed must have been the students. They seemed to be anxious as to what was going on outside and she wondered how things went on outside to see what the battle was about. And so she sent another observer spirit outside to the windows of the mansion and saw the X-men meet the soldiers and the others head on. The first person she noticed was a woman who ran towards a couple of bushes donning on a mask and coat and attacked the coming line of soldiers, taking out most of them. And from her calculations she should meet Frenzy pretty soon if she kept at that general direction. Then she heard a loud screeching of metal forcedly being moved in ways it shouldn’t. Magneto had begun his attack as well as the other X-Men. Agent Zero met the man known as Cyclops and she knew he would lose to her subordinate easily, and he did.

Thinking she saw enough she went back to the control room only to hear the doors be blown apart and men began to pour in surrounding the mutants that had stayed behind. Sabertooth and X-23 appeared in her line of vision, Sabertooth attacking and she noticed a small woman in armor stand tall and alone against them. Foolish mutant you won’t win with such petty amour. Agent Six was proved wrong when the woman made vines come out of no where grabbing some of the soldiers to who knew where. And she noted two mutants stand in front of a man who she realized was the weapon, despite what Sabertooth told them about the weapon they still think they could protect him. Their spy created an ice shield blocking her view of the others leaving behind a few stragglers who ended up on the other side facing the soldiers. Sabertooth grabbed on a mutant who had light related abilities and began to crush him with his strength until an Asian woman came in and phased to the boy away from Sabertooths grasp and they ran towards the ice wall and phased again.

Agent Six quickly created another observer spirit on the other side of the ice wall to look in on the weapon Trask wanted so badly back. She saw their spy again along with t e two mutants who stood protectively in front of the weapon. Her vision was a bit blurry due to the medium being ice and it had frost over it. But she could see and she felt tremors go through her body as parts of the wall began to crack and one side crumbled completely allowing soldiers to enter the back. She noticed a giant whole behind the mutants and weapon and as the wall began to crumble more and more slowly melting she took this chance to get closer to the fight at least that was her plan until some soldiers stepped on her observer spirit giving her small headache and she quickly retreated back to the wall.

The mutants began to attack the soldiers when Sabertooth yelled “Gather around boys! Take aim and fire ALL Rounds at the enemy!!” He laughed as the soldiers shot thousands of bullets at the group. But he weapon stopped the bullets’ until there was a large wall of floating bullets and then they turned and took down about 15 soldiers. The Weapon seemed devastated at what he did but she knew it was just in his nature. Sabetooth began to play his physiological card by saying something to provoke the Weapon even more but suddenly he turned around and gave a sick twisted smile towards where the doors had been and the powerful mutant known as Wolverine entered the scene glaring at Sabertooth and chared at him taking him down and began to slash at Sabertooth.

Ace

a masked figure stumbled out of the shadows battered and out of breath.she tripped and feel to her knees unkown as to where she was.she looked around to find herself in a giant hole in the wall realizing it was on of the surrounding walls of the danger room
.'who the hell put a hole in the wall?'she said to no one in paticular.she got up when a a seizure like symptom raked through her bony for a moment her left eye turned black for a few minutes until it was gone."No dammit"Ace had won the battle but she had yet to win the war within herself.sighing she walked around a bit until she stepped in to the danger room,whoch was a bad idea because she saw Jonothan staring into a soldiers eyes making his worst fears come true.Ace cclutched her head for a moment as sshe seemed to have been affected as well but to a lesser extent. she could feel Alices power surge and she hasped realizing that if stayed here any longer her win would have beenn pointless.So she ran back into the closest shadow and ran a few feet in total darkness when she stepped out into the front yard to to be thrown backwards by a large explosion and she was pushed back into a shadow and stumbled in the main corridor to have Jonathan onve again in her view but he diid not notice her as he ran by.




Agent Six

as she watched Wolverine fight Sabertooh she wondered were Agent Zero was put she quickly pushed that thought away.she focused back on to the Weapon when on of the mutants proteecting him ran off to take down a coulle soldiers along with a girl.the two faught quite nicely without any visible powers that she could see. until the young man began to stare at the soldier doing something to him. the soldier began to cry out in fear and the houng mutant was saying something but she was too far to hear in him so she decided to get closer. she made her spirit solid enough to be able to take a chunk of crumbling ice and threw it on the ground close to where the two were standing and begun to form an observer spirit as the ice began to melt. as she left her old spot and onto her knew one she could know hear hear him and soon she realized that it was a bad idea to have gotten so close to them. while the mutant was talking she could feel something tugging at her subcounsious but she didd t know what it was and the feeling quickly passed. 'so this mutant uses words that put fear into the victims heart'. finally the soldier collasped and the other femal mutant ran up to him putting her hand on hiss chest to stop him from doing anymore damage. 'why would she stop him,he is protecting her and their so called "family".the girl then looked away from him and yelled out "Mom" and she searched for something and ran towards the exit, where a soldier waited for her to fall into his trap which she did.

the soldier began to advance on her with a knife when the young man ran at him yelling "LET GO OF MY SISTER" and grabbed the soldier at his throat pushing him into the wall. thats were things began to change the area of where the mutant held the soldier it turned purple and then it looked like the soldier died or was rendered uncouncious.'humm so he also has an ability similar to the Rouges?'the girl quickly ran off and the boy realizing what he did shook his head in disbilief and looked back at the Weapon before running off after his sister. as he left Agent Six spotted movement in the shadows and realized the very same woman with the mask from earlier was standing there inthe shadows but it looked like the boy was so intent on going after his sister he didnt notice her. but upon seeing her Agent Six heard/felt an explosion from outside and quickly switced positions with her observer spirit outside.

there looked to be a large explosion and the man know as the GameMaster was on the ground wound.she looked around and caught sight of something small and black inthe sky dropping fast to the ground.

David North had entered the X-mansion. He slowly walked through the dark corridors. When the mansion went into lockdown mode the hall lights were programmed to darken. Nothing but daylight illuminated the halls of the X-mansion. David had to find his way to the danger room. He seemingly casually strolled down the hall admiring the mansion in his search of the Danger Room. He pondered, “I wonder what life would be like had I taken Logan up on his offer to join the X-men… Not bad looking. But I think I should save it as a retirement option.” David chuckled to himself. He saw someone approaching him in the distance, a girl. David slipped quietly into an alcove next to an empty bedroom doorway and watched the young lady dash in his direction. “Now she’s a pretty number. Sadly she’s not alone.” David whispered. “ Zero com, [David’s personal computer database.] give me info on targets one and two there.” David whispered into his earpiece.

David’s micro database scanned the nearby area picking up on Memory and Jonathan. It pulled up the data given by the intelligence on the mansion’s inhabitants.

“Target one identified as Memory Ashcroft
Age: 21
Occupation: Student
Known abilities: Memory manipulation/ alteration
Target two identified as Jonathan Moore
Age: 24
Occupation: Student
Known Abilities: Dream/ Nightmare Inducement
Special note: Please be advised to avoid skin contact with target”


David smirked as he listened to the information. The two students were actually headed toward the door beside where he was hiding. David, with his gun drawn, popped out of the alcove and aimed his gun at the two just as they reached Memory’s bedroom door. “Hi there.” He said with a grin. “I hope you don’t mind me dropping in on you. Oh and I’d advise you not to try your powers John. If I feel even the slightest sign of fear or a dream state come over me, I will shoot you. Now I will let you grab whatever it is you came for as long as you calmly show me to the Danger Room. What do you say pretty lady?” David spoke casually and suavely. He looked as friendly as one could look while holding a gun to another.

[Outside the Mansion]

Stinger watched as Cara turned the shadows of a few soldiers against themselves. She slowly walked closer to the mansion and toward Cara, her pink high heeled boots clashing against the pavement. “That’s impressive. It’s Creepy, but impressive. You must be shadowdancer… Cute but you do look a bit rough around the edges. I don’t tussle with your type alone.” Stinger commented playfully. She then Turned to Frenzy and called out to her. “Hey Frenzy come over here sugarface! We’re gonna have ourselves a little girls only party!!”

As Vincent relayed the revised plan, Ryan listened intently for his instructions. Unfortunately he wouldn't be able to stay and protect Vincent, but he knew he could trust Professor Vila, Philip, Hideki and Logan to do so in his absence. It was a good plan, a solid plan. Ryan felt ok about leaving and helping out front too. He was needed there. All the while, he kept an eye on the fight between Logan and the predator, making sure to keep his nose and ears on X-23. Something told him that his eyes would be misleading when it came to her, so smell was the best bet. Ryan slowly made his way over to Adria and hefted her onto his back in a traditional piggy back stance. "I've got her, you guys cover me from the rear. When Vince gives the signal, I'm getting out of here as fast as I can, I might lose you in the process. I'm heading straight for the infirmary. If you lose me, that's where I'll be headed." he whispered to Professor Fuyumi, Thantos, and Kyle. Ryan waited for the signal. He could feel Vincent tensing, it was about to happen soon.

All of a sudden, Memory, Johnathan, and a complete stranger walked into the room. Ryan almost did a double take when he saw Memory, he knew she was pretty, but that outfit was outrageous. Ryan felt his face get hot. That was one nice thing about having completely black skin, no one could see you blush. He almost considered... when this was over... "No. No way." Ryan thought realistically. There was no way she would like him. I mean, come on. Ryan had looked in a mirror when he brushed his teeth this morning, he knew what he looked like. Besides, he knew she was just friendly with him. There was no way it would turn into anything romantic. Ryan knew that. He had to focus. Just then, a gunshot snapped Ryan from his daydream. He wasn't having a good time there anyway, way too much fiction for his liking. That stranger had just shot Logan in the head. Sure Logan would be fine, Logan was the only one who healed faster than he did. Still, Ryan would have words for that man later. Except they would be his written with his fists. "Yeah," Ryan joked to himself. "It'll be a very strongly worded letter." He chuckled. Just then, Vincent shouted, "Now’s your chance run!" At that moment, Ryan blasted himself from his crouched position to the other end of the room, past the enemy mutants and out the only exit available. He saw the world around him blur as he pushed it's body to his max speed. He trusted the others to cover him, and those assigned to combat to be enough of a distraction that he could slip by. He was using his speed for all it was worth, trying to put as much distance as he could between himself, and by extent Adria, and the enemy mutants in the room. As he rushed past Memory and Johnathan, he whispered quietly to them, "Be safe. Vincent and Vila are going all out." He wasn't sure if they heard him, or if Vincent had had the foresight to include them in the planning stage, but he had to try and warn them about the hell that would be unleashed in that room if they stuck around. Ryan only slowed down when he put two staircases and a hallway behind him. He was still running, but not as fast as he possibly could. He was still on his way to the infirmary, but he was slowing down so as to give the others a chance to catch up. He didn't want to be alone with a wounded friend during an attack, but he needed to get her safe. So he did what he had to do, even if that meant leaving the others behind for a bit. Plus, he was tired. He'd just done... probably well over his max speed with someone on his back four about fifteen seconds. He was breathing hard. He'd had just enough of a break between fighting and running that he wasn't exhausted, but he definitely wasn't going to be much help right away. As he jogged, Ryan felt nervous. It was far too quiet in the mansion. Much too quiet for a full scale battle to be going on within its grounds. He didn't like it. He didn't like his odds right now. There could be any number of enemy soldiers near him ready to strike. His pace quickened slightly. As he ran, his thoughts went back to Memory and Vincent and all his other friends... his family, putting their lives on the line to protect him and this wounded friend.

"Please be ok..."

Ace
ace breathed deeply in and out trying to calm her beating heart and telling herself that she wasnt actually hurt just her mind think it got hurt.ace heard the proffesor ask her if she was alright and simply told "like Hell im alright i feel like just got punched by Jaugurtnot i hurt like hell" she could feel the prof. chuckle at her outburst.as ace tried for the doors she realized that something was keeping them close "tch im gonnna kick who evers ass it was that caused that explosion"she hissed to herself.

Getting fusturated and with the large need to vent her anger Ace pretty much obliterated the front doors with her shadow scythe looking upon a scene that made her really want to kick someones ass. noticing that she didnt have her mask on and perfering to wear it than show her face to the attackers she created a pure black mask that she knew,she would very much need by the looks of it.she even created a kind of armur over her vital areas encasing them in hard,forever moving shadows. 'where do you need me to go prof. im really itching to knock some heads about'she called out telepathecly to the prof.

as she went to him she noticed a pair of men rushing him while he was concentrating on the men before him.Ace ran and dived into a nearby shadow and reached out and grabed one of the mens guns jerking his arm away causing him to shoot aimlessly.the other one then shot her in the head causing her to fall out of his friends shadow.stumbling backwards but she caught herself which surprised the soldiers causing them to step back qwaking at her. she leaned forward bending down a little when she gave a small "ow" she looked up holding her face.she removed her hand and looked in it which held the bullet. "you frikin shot me she said in disbelief."You shout me you Ugly Bastards and that Frikin Hurt!"she hissed angrily she glared at them through the mask, it cracked,the top corner crumbling away to reveal an eye full of anger. she growled at them "you actually shot at me?"she ran at them firts bending down low into her shadow and pulled out two pure black poles of shadow and flipped fowards onto the poles for a moment kicking out at them with her legs as they finnaly recovered their senses and shot at her.she took them down and landed back on her feet.she looked back at the proffessor checking on him when she caught a glimpse of one of the students,Sam who was gone for awhile on a mission she beleived and was running towards them after encountering Frenzy and meeting up with Cara.

she turned back to the prof. to see where he needed her to go when suddenly she felt something land just outside the gates 'oh Dear' she could feel the ground shake and Ace smiled for she knew who to vent her anger at and it was waiting just outside the gates. There were four Sentinals and a big ones too. 'oohh this is gonna be fun.

[OOC: Masato said it was alright for me to insert the sentinels.]

Feeling quite self-conscious as she tip-toed inside the silver room with trepidation, Memory cursed under her breath at the outfit choice. This was something that she would never wear normally - preferring for skirts that at least fell to the knees - and had been given to her as a joke by her friend years back, but it did fit the situation. In her experience seduction was a powerful tool for one to use, and something that she was very good at. It may not be the most dignifying thing in the world but it does get the job done. Pulling the jacket around herself a little tighter, she watched as the many eyes turned in her direction. One such pair of yellow eyes caught her attention for a second, recognising them as the eyes of Ryan who had helped Jonathan protect Ryan. There had always been a certain curiosity about the horned boy but Memory had never pursued it. Taking a mental to note to ask at some point, along with Hideki about his fireworks, if they survived Memory returned her attention to the present.

She regretted it instantly.

A gunshot rang out and Logan dropped to the floor not far from the siblings. This is all that Memory got to hear as her brother pulled M close and buried her head into his chest, gripping her body tightly so that she couldn't see what happened. Normally she would have protested but there was no way that she could now. They had just assisted in Logan's assault to a degree. They knew he wouldn't, couldn't, die but regardless they felt their hearts twist painfully.

"Now’s your chance run!"

At Vincent's call, Jonathan looked to him and nodded with tears in his eyes.Pulling Memory from his body J looked her straight in the eye, those chocolate orbs which wobbled through the tears, and swallowed the painful lump in his throat back to the depths of his stomach.

"Come on, we need to move." When she did not, he shook her by the shoulders gently. "Come on!"

Snapped out of her trance, Memory nodded stiffly and took Jonathan's hand letting him lead and pull her from the building. They managed only a few steps before Ryan, the black scaled boy who had aided Jonathan in defending Vincent before, rushed past them whispering something on the way but they didn't quite catch it. Assuming that it was a warning about the trouble they would face or a suggestion to move their asses, they followed both.

Although, Memory had to do one thing first.

"Hang on!" She called to her brother releasing his hand and stopping at a downed soldier, the same one that Jonathan had killed in fact, or rather will have killed when the full effects of his power kicked in and took this man from the world. Looking away in shame, Jonathan did not see Memory take the man's gun. Nor did he see her lift it up to aim. What he did see however was the girl he had come to know and love so well take three steps in front of him and, with the accuracy of a sharpshooter (from their gunman that she had been keeping skin contact with all the way to the danger room), strike the man's gun with one shot.

He didn't wait to see if she had managed to disarm him or not as he gripped her hand and pulled her away, Memory dropping the gun in disgust only seconds later.

Taking off out the Danger Room door and door the silver corridor, their boots making clicks and thumps as they slapped the ground hard, the "wonder twins" headed straight for the Professor outside. This plan for the most part worked until they were faced with the elevator door. As those metal doors slid open and revealed the two like a prize on a game show to the soldier behind it, Memory yelped in panic making the the man turn quickly. He lifted his gun but it was moved away from them, aimed in a safer direction, With M's palm colliding with the barrel. J caught the man's arms and moved in close, their eyes a mere two inches apart.

Then he whispered one word.

"Clementine."

The man's grip on the gun lessened and it was dropped into M's waiting hands then discarded to the side, Jonathan retaining eye contact with the man as he refused to voice and narrate the happenings within this man's dream-world in front of his sister. The information got a little... kinky.

Throwing him into the elevator, they clasped hands once more and ran.

"Who the hell is Clementine?!" Memory called to her brother, a little short of breath for running so long with barely any stopping.
"And what the hell kind of dream did you put him into?" This made J roll his eyes.

"Remember, M, I can manipulate their hopes and dreams too. He was hoping to see his girlfriend Clementine and... get it on," Jonathan scowled at the way that came out in his southern accent, the sound of it just seeming somewhat wrong to him.
"so I just manipulated it and amplified his wish to do... that with her."

"Naturally..."

***


Finally they made it outside, the crisp air catching them off guard. After a quick scan into the mass of fighting figures and bodies littered across the ground, both siblings found the Professor at the same time. This time, however, it was Memory that lead.

"Professor Xavier! Vincent sent us!" Dodging body after body, power after power and mutant after mutant they eventually reached the Professor, both siblings gaining injuries along the way. Memory now had a cut above her eyebrow from a stray piece of wood and Jonathan was grazed by a bullet on the right side of his abdomen. it wasn't deep and didn't bleed too much and for these reasons he ignored it, even though it hurt like a bitch.

Thinking back to whom had been left behind when they left, Jonathan grimaced in a new form of pain. He had left Vincent, the one he practically considered a brother, and Kyle. The thought of his name brought the memories of his pleasant flirting and hand-holding back to J's mind. Shaking his had, thinking better than to reminisce in battle, J returned his mind to the fighting.

That's when he heard it, the loud metallic thud. Or rather, a group of metallic thuds all striking the ground simultaneously. In a synchronised, and rather scarily similar, way the siblings flipped their heads around to the large metal men standing three stories tall not that far behind them.

"Ho-ly fu-"

A hand slapped over his mouth and cut off the rest of his word. He eyed his sister in exasperation but she only tutted.

"Jonathan, you should know better. There could be kids watching."

Giving Memory a quick confused look, not entirely understanding what she meant, he suddenly felt like there were many eyes all upon him now. Shaking it off, he returned his own eyes to the Sentinels.

"We're doomed."

"So you think that just because they promised they'd leave you alone that they actually will?!" Cara looked offended. "Stinger I thought you were smarter than that. Even Toad wasn't that stupid." She never dropped her eyes from Stinger's throughout the conversation.

Stinger was a tad put off by Cara’s opinions regarding her decisions. However given Cara’s tone and frustration it really showed that in some way Cara’s concern for Stinger. Perhaps it was a lingering comradery from when they worked together. It made Stinger feel a little bad about her choice but it was a little too late to turn around now.

"So hard for nothing?! You've abandoned the cause! You have achieved nothing! You've joined exactly what we were fighting against! The humans are winning and you are aiding them!" Cara shouted back angrily almost being caught off guard in her moment of distraction as Stingers arms outstretched towards her. Cara's eyes shot open for a moment before she flipped herself backwards escaping the majority of the shock but catching a nasty case of static as she jumped, almost sticking her landing Cara pushed her arms out forwards and landed low, sending one of the metal hand rails that had now become dislodged up and towards her opponents.

"Perhaps enough toying?" She smiled, as the pole was deflected. "Shall we get down to it, devochki?" she smiled devilishly at the two mutants. Cara seemed slightly perturbed by Frenzy's sudden withdrawal. "Aww, looks like it's just me and you after all." She jumped from where she stood flipping herself in the air and jumping into a shadow, re-appearing behind Stinger and giving her a swift kick in the ass. She pulled her jacket from her shoulders and threw it to the side of them away from the fight. "I do hope you've kept yourself in good shape."

Stinger was becoming increasingly annoyed with Cara’s besting her. She turned around and delivered a kick aimed at Cara’s torso. “Let’s just say I’ll never let myself go Cara. So yeah I’m in good shape!” Stinger elegantly back flipped backwards twice to gain a little distance from Cara. She began to twirl around swiftly causing a tornado of bioelectricity. When her twirling stopped the tornado quickly shot in Cara’s direction. “Of course I don’t trust the government for a millisecond. But if a girl knows how to play her cards right, and keep her wits about her she’ll do alright. And I plan to grit my teeth and survive to the very end I do!” Stinger replied in a snappy more serious tone.

[Danger Room]
After Vincent began his psionic assault on Sabertooth’s mind the other students ran. Ryan carrying Adria first, then Memory and Jonathan. Kyle flew swiftly behind. He didn’t want to leave but he trusted that Vincent had a good plan. Kyle turned to Hideki, “Look after the young headmaster will you? And I better not here about you getting your ass handed to you later!” Kyle teased Hideki.

Hideki laughed and replied, “Yeah okay. Don’t get too distracted gawking at Jonathan out there and forget to fight!” Kyle smiled sheepishly and flew off.

Professor Fuyumi patted Vincent on the shoulder as he assaulted Sabertooth, “Do be careful Vincent. Call for me if you need and escape route.” She said. She then gave Philip a quick kiss on the forehead and dashed out of the danger room, phasing through the wall of the danger room.

Agent Zero was shocked to see the level of pain the weapon could inflict on Sabertooth. He was strong however Zero knew that this display of strength was only the tip of the iceberg. The weapon was capable of far more. He was being held back and David wondered how Xavier managed to conceal Vincent’s true strength from Vincent himself. David needed to help Sabertooth, however he knew that he couldn’t bring much harm to Vincent, Trask would have a bitch fit if that happened. He then fired a few gun shots at Vincent knowing that he would cease his mental assault on Sabertooth.

Vincent stopped the bullets after releasing Sabertooth. Sabertooth recovered quickly and lunged at Vincent. Hideki quickly blasted Sabertooth backward with a light based plasma blast. Philip hurled a few time bombs at David. They landed around David and began to set off around his feet destroying much of the ground around David. Vincent wondered why X-23 hadn’t acted yet. David hopped out of danger and tossed a thermite bomb at the group. Vincent was able to conceal some of the blast damage but the group had still gotten knocked back by the force. David was highly trained and knew his opponents well. He knew just how far to go.

Logan had finally recovered from being shot in the head. He slowly sat up and looked around noticing the scene unfolding. He then tackled David and pinned him to the ground Claws extended and pointed at David’s chest.

[Outside the mansion]

The fight was going strong outside. Pietro sped around knocking out soldiers in a flash. Fuyumi had joined the group she phased some soldiers partway through the ground and left them there, She weren’t hurt but they were stuck. Kyle was glad to see daylight. The sentinels appeared and began to target mutants. Pietro quickly zipped over toward Magneto. “Yo pops we’ve got a serious problem…”

Magneto turned toward the sentinels and he was not worried in the slightest. Four sentinels wasn’t difficult for him to handle. However Trask being well aware of Magneto’s advantage over the Sentinels ordered many soldiers to close in on him causing him to be preoccupied with them. He would not be able to help the group so easily. Charles greeted Jonathan and Memory. “You all have done well.” He said as they reached him, not without battle wounds. “You two have fought bravely thank you for all that you’ve done.” The professor said to the two siblings.

As Logan pinned David down David smiled almost joyously. “oh…. Logan! I didn’t know you were that glad to see me again! I take it you weren’t too fond of my greetings gift. But you didn’t forget that I owed you that shot right?” David joked. He and Logan used to have a very particular relationship. The two would often joke and make bets with one another when they both worked together. One could say they were friends whereas Victor and Logan were rivals.

“You know bub, that was a REALLY cheap shot!” Logan said his adamantium claws ready to strike.

“Logan… How dare you? I never take cheap shots.” David replied, a sarcastic smile painted across his face.

“Whatever, You didn’t owe me shit before, but after that little stunt you do now. And I intend to collect on it right now…:” Logan definitely didn’t want to kill David, there was still hope left for him in Logan’s perspective. He planned on wounding North since he knew that David could heal almost as good as him and Sabertooth. If Professor X had to rate the speed of self-healing abilities, Wolverine would be ranked the first and fastest, Sabertooth second, and David North Third. Logan could take far more than David due to the Adamantium grafted onto his skeleton. David and Sabertooth couldn’t heal fast enough to survive the process of receiving an adamantium skeletal grafting.

Just then X-23, with her steel toed boot, kicked Logan hard in the ribs launching him backwards. He hit the danger room wall and fell to the ground next to Vincent, Hideki and Philip, who had been previously knocked back by David’s thermite bomb.

David was a little surprised as X-23 then helped him up. She was seemingly the quiet angry type in his eyes. As she protected him his look of confusion converted over to a look of enlightenment. He didn’t know that X-23 would react this way on his behalf. He then said to X-23, “Were you waiting for me to get here before you made a move? Sabertooth had been struggling quite a bit you know. Well whatever, Victor is always too pigheaded to receive help and be grateful about it.”

Sabertooth standing after receiving an explosive fireworks like blast from Hideki replied, “Fuck you North. Kid’s little sparklers hurt a hell of a lot more than I thought they would.”

Vincent breathing heavily said to Logan as he looked up at X-23, “So she finally moves… Just great.”

Logan began to stand. “Yeah… just my luck. Ah…. Little demons has a kick like mine… “ Logan began to realize that this girl was most likely like him. “Avoid her she’s dangerous on another level. I hope I can trust you all to handle Sabertooth and David?”

Vincent, Philip, and Hideki stood as well. Vincent eyed their opponents and replied, “Yes. We’ll make do. Be careful Logan.”

“Can’t promise that.” Logan said as he rushed at X-23. He punched her across the face knowing that she could most likely handle a jaw breaking punch from him like Sabertooth could.

Vincent spoke to Hideki and Philip, “Hideki, Philip, you two take David. Leave Sabertooth to me. If it gets too tough escape.”

[Outside the Mansion]

Cara was hit by stinger’s electric tornado attack. It seemed to have greatly hurt Cara as she screamed loudly. Stinger didn’t like having to go this far in fighting Cara but it couldn’t be helped they were now enemies.
When Cara looked up Stinger had turned serious, this fight could definitely turn out badly. “And what do you think they will do once all mutants are dead or in slavery?” Cara asked through gritted teeth. “You will be redundant; they will add you to the slaves or just kill you.” She slowly pulled herself to her feet. “Or worse, they will turn you into a puppet.” Her shadow on the floor began to change, branching out towards Stinger, slowly creeping along the floor until their shadows met.

Cara took control of Stinger’s shadow causing her adversary to raise her arms dramatically before bowing down, making jerking movements much like a string puppet. “Get used to that feeling Stinger. That is all you are aiming for now.” Cara pulled Stinger into walking towards her; despite her weakened state Cara was still able to win the fight for control of movement.

As Stinger stood almost a foot from her Cara relinquished her control. “Could you do it Wendy? Could you watch our race die? Could you watch me die?” she was looking directly into Stinger’s eyes, almost staring into her very soul.

Stinger struggled to get free in vain. She felt helpless as Cara’s words sank deeply into her conscience. She knew in truth she couldn’t watch Cara die. She couldn’t feel content with mutants suffering at the hands of fearful humans. She hoped at least that she could run away somewhere where she could live quietly and at peace leaving all of it behind. But that was a delusion. “NO I COULDN’T AND I CAN’T OKAY!! I’m just so sick of it all!! All the fighting, the deaths, the fear!! It’s just too much and no matter who I follow, the end of the tunnel just never appears before my eyes!!” Stinger actually began to sob. She had completely given up fighting Cara.

The Sentinels moved in on them programed to ignore the weapon-x mutants. Ace attacked the arm of one sentinel with her shadow scythe. However the armor of the sentinel was much stronger than any of them had anticipated. Ace then thought so that Professor X could hear, ‘shall I help Cara or will you, I need an answer soon it doesn’t look like she will be standing long with Stinger as her opponent?’

The Professor replied, ”Don’t worry Ace. I will have a word with Stinger and tell Cara to stand down. Stinger seems to be in a better place to listen now. Please take care of the sentinels. Magneto seems a bit preoccupied at the moment handling those soldiers without seriously hurting them.” The professor smiled at Ace. The professor telepathically contacted Stinger and Cara. “Cara, this is the Charles Xavier. Please release Stinger, she won’t attack I’m sure of it. You need to take it easy now. Your body is being pushed to its limits, your teammates and I fear you won’t last long if you continue this way. I shall talk to Stinger. I think I can get through to her now that you’ve reached her heart. Rest now.” Charles spoke gently to Cara.

Charles then telepathically spoke to Stinger, “Wendy, This is Charles Xavier. Please listen to me carefully. You heard what Cara has spoken to you and she speaks through much wisdom. You cannot trust weapon-x not to betray you. They mean no mutant good and will eventually aim to hunt us all down. There will be no running. Join us, support a cause you know to be right. Even if it’s not to fight for it, just believing in that cause once again can and will save yours and many other lives. I’ve seen it happen before. What do you say Wendy?” Charles asked. He sounded like a nurturing father.
[OOC: I’m assuming Cara released Stinger.]
Stinger felt much better, she replied, “I’ll trust you and believe in what I did before all of this mess. Geez you sure know how to make a girl ruin her mascara…”

Fuyumi looked at the sentinels and let out a heavy sigh. “If I have to see more of these again today, whether fake or real, I’m going to have a heart attack.” She then dashed toward the sentinel. Once she reached the foot of one of the large machines she tried to phase it into the ground. The sentinel’s left foot began to sink into the concrete. Fuyumi phased back through the ground to the surface. The sentinel struggled to pull it’s foot out of the ground. Fuyumi hoped that it would tear its foot off trying to pull it from the ground but it was too strong, it only ripped up the concrete and it was then free.

Kyle flew by and toward a sentinel. He dodged the lazer beams that shot at him by flying in swift loops. He managed to get close enough to one of the sentinels heads and he gave it a sucker punch knocking it off center. The sentinel next to the now staggering sentinel blasted Kyle back with a laser blast burning a large hole in Kyle’s shirt and sending him falling towards the ground.

Ryan had almost slowed to a complete stop. He was really only walking now. He was listening for the sounds of enemies in the mansion, but there were strangely none at all. He was concerned. This is insane! Ryan thought. It's like Vincent and the mansion itself are the only things they targeted! They said they were after Vincent which would explain their presence in the danger room. Is there some other motive? Why are they targeting us? It was at that moment that four, very large tremors shook the house. They seemed to come from outside the house. What on Earth? Ryan wondered. What could possibly make that?

For some odd reason, Ryan's thoughts flew to Memory. He hadn't known her for very long. They'd really only sort of "met", recently. She was nice. She'd smiled when she met him, when he'd fumbled over his introduction. They both were. Nice that is. She and her brother Johnathan, they were kind and understanding when they met him. Seen him. They were good people. Come to think of it, he never seemed to see her without him. They must be very close, just like a family should be. Ryan sighed. "Family," he said longingly. Must be really nice, to have someone to trust your entire being to. To know will always have your back, no matter what. What was she doing now? He wondered. Last he'd seen, she was still back there with Vincent and the predator. Come to think of it, she showed up wearing... What on Earth was with that outfit? She looked... No Ryan, she's way out of your league. Plus, she's five years older than you. Besides, she must have worn those clothes for a reason. She wouldn't just jump into battle looking like... she did... unless it had a purpose. There's no time for thoughts like that. Drop it. For your own good. Still, he couldn't help but worry. Was she ok? Did she run away? Did she get caught? Was she in trouble? What if?... What if?... NO! There's no time for thoughts like that. I told you. She'll be fine, she's with Johnathan. Her brother loves her. He'll have her back. He'll protect her. That's what brothers are for. Not you. Ryan sighed again, there was no room for him there.

Just then, Ryan heard the noise of footsteps. It was odd though. There were a few short ones, in rapid succession, followed by silence, then more. They repeated just like that. They had far too long a period of silence to be any regular kind of footsteps. Ryan's whole body tensed. He picked up his pace, running again, and fast. It frightened him. What could be in the house with him? What kind of thing walked like that? How could it be getting so close with so few footsteps.

"Finally found you, everyone else is on their way." Thantos gasped. Even though it was quiet, Ryan almost shouted when he swore. "Jesus! Thantos! You scared the shit out of me!" "We left just in time four sentinels just showed up." "Shit! Sentinels? In the Danger Room? The sound of them landing came from outside? How many are there? No time, talk while we jog, I'll slow down now, I'm sorry I moved so fast, I had to get Adria out of there." "We need to hurry and get back. Their gonna need us." "First thing's first, we need to get Adria to the infirmary. Secondly, if there really are sentinels outside, they're gonna need us there. We report to Doctor Xavier, as planned. This way!" Ryan jogged with Thantos down to the infirmary. Ryan felt they could afford to take it a little slower since there were two conscious people escorting Adria as opposed to one. He felt bad he had to go so fast in the first place. Thantos looked dead tired, but he kept up like a real trooper. However, escorting Adria was important. It had to be done. They laid Adria in one of the beds the second they got to the infirmary. They called for some help and turned to leave immediately. The nurse tried to get them to stay and recover from their injuries. "No time ma'am," Ryan shouted, already leading Thantos out the door and back to the front door. "We're just a little tired, they need us out front!"

They headed down the hallway and to the front door. Ryan stopped before they reached it. "If there are Sentinels out there, we need to be prepared. A games and all that. You ready? If so, lead on. We're in for the fight of our lives. Only one way to know for sure if we're ready." Ryan held out his fist, waiting for Thantos to bump fists with him. They hadn't been friends for long, but they were close. Ryan knew Thantos would cover his back, just as he would cover Thantos's.

"Ryan... are you wearing the metal shoes?"

Ryan nodded in reply, "Yeah. We were gonna practice that thing."

"You wanna practice it now? I could throw you at one of the sentinels."

"Are you sure?.. We've never tried before."

"Yeah I'll be able to throw you and your gonna hit that thing hard!" He reached out and bumped Ryan's fist.

"Alright if your sure let's do it!"

Ryan threw open the doors and lined himself up with one of the sentinels. Thantos was looking for a strong anchor. This push wasn't gonna be easy. Finding one he nodded to Ryan who jumped up into the air. Burning steel Thantos pushed against the piping in the house and against the metal base of Ryan's boots throwing Ryan through the air (launched at an accelerating 15 feet per second approx speed at contact 40 mph). After about five seconds Ryan makes contact with the sentinel. Dousing the burning steel Thantos steadies himself against the fatigue. That worked about as well as I could have hoped.

Having caught his breath Thantos grabs another vial off of his belt pulling the cork off and downing the contents. Seeing Magneto surrounded by a group of soldiers. He starts burning pewter and runs to help him. Reaching the circle he lowers his shoulder and charges the group dropping three of the soldiers in the group. "Professor! Use these!" He throws a handful of coins towards his professor. Continuing forward he feels something hit his shoulder. The pewter strengthening his body he continues forward grabbing the soldier and headbutting him to unconscious.

(ooc I got permission to do the dialogue between Thantos and Ryan as well as throw him at the sentinel.)

“It won’t appear if you fight for the wrong side Stinger. We will win this war! The humans will lose!” Cara was careful to keep her voice down. It seemed that although she had joined Xavier’s little band of mutants she still did not completely share his vision of peace between humans and mutants. Stinger was a little surprised. “Come on; let’s move before those sentinels see us.” She said gesturing Stinger towards the mansion. Her breathing was getting heavier and her hand was now covering over her now profusely bleeding wound.

Stinger followed Cara, it was good to feel like she had her old friend back, somewhat. She was concerned to see that Cara had sustained some serious wounds. Stinger knew that Cara was always one to push herself too far, when Stinger would have long fled a fight that was getting too tough for her liking, Cara would fight until Magneto would drag her away. After a few feet Cara collapsed onto her side. Stinger knelt down beside Cara, “Dammit Cara, you push yourself way too hard!” She was about to help Cara up when she realized that the Sentinel was approaching. She quickly stood to her feet and blasted the robot with an electric charge, however her powers were ineffective against this particular model of sentinel as they were heavily insolated and immune to electric attacks. “Oh… shit this is a problem…” Stinger said as watched the Sentinel loom over her. It was programmed not to target members of weapon X so it ignored her and attempted to target Cara.

Cara made her move taking hold of its shadow she used all of her remaining strength to corrupt the machine into turning its own gun into pointing at its ‘hips’ just before it fired. The resounding thud as the third sentinel crashed to the earth. Stinger had breathe a sigh of relief. “Saving my ass must be a pastime of yours Cara.” Stinger said with a smile. She then noticed Cara had passed out. She knelt down beside Cara again and began to try to awaken her. “I need to get her to a doctor.” Stinger said as she began to pick Cara up. “I suppose I should find the infirmary in here…”

As Kyle fell from the sky after being blasted by the sentinels Scott rushed over to catch him. Scott made it just in time to intercept Kyle from hitting the ground. Kyle looked a bit stunned but he was alright. As Scott held Kyle in his arms he asked, “You took a pretty nasty blast, are you alright Kyle?”

Kyle looked at Scott with a squiggly little grin an wrapped his arms around Scott’s neck to give him a big flirtatious hug. Kyle could never pass a rare opportunity to be flirty and this close to the handsome and oh so serious Scott Summers.

Scott blushed nervously and sighed. “What am I going to do with you?”

Kyle giggled mischievously, “For starters you could help me find someplace private…”

Scott quickly interrupted, “Too far Kyle. Never mind, help me subdue those soldiers surrounding Magneto.” He let Kyle down and Kyle began to hover slightly above the ground once more.

More sentinels dropped down from the sky, the X-men would have serious trouble taking out this amount of them. Magneto knew that he’d be able to handle them with great ease but he had to get rid of this continual flow of soldiers. As Pietro knocked them out they wouldn’t stay down. Scott noticed the large group of sentinels that landed at knew that they had to help Magneto available to handle them. Scott blasted a soldier back with his optic blast and he realized that the man sparked. The soldiers that attacked Magneto and Pietro were robots made out of a non-metal alloy. This was another clever trick of Trasks to subdue Magneto while he sent the sentinels to deal with the others.

“Those are Robots! Magneto, Kyle, Pietro, Fuyumi, don’t hold back they aren’t human!” Scott warned them.

“Leave the sentinels to me. Cyclops please handle the toy soldiers.” Magneto spoke in a tone that indicated how tired he was of Trasks games. He levitated over to the mass of sentinels and as they attacked he erected his electromagnetic shield to nullify the sentinel’s blasts. “Fools will create weapons of even more foolish quality.” Magneto said as he waved his hands back and forth, the air seemed to ripple as he used his powers. The Sentinels began to slam into one another. He then mad a chopping motion causing the heads of several of the sentinels to decapitate and fall to the ground. He simply crumpled the others up. And hurled them at Trasks’ temp base.

Trask ordered everyone to pull back and retreat. He then spoke to David and Victor on his head piece. “David, Victor, We’re leaving. Collect the Weapon and X-23 and let’s get out of here. I’ve sent someone to retrieve Alexander. Frenzy can’t be found and Stinger seems to be with the enemy. Do NOT leave without the Weapon! That’s an order!!”

Charles found Frenzy waking up from her earlier encounter with Sam. She spoke to her calmly. “Hello Joanna. I am Charles Xavier. I sensed that you desired to speak with me. You comrades are currently leaving. Do you still wish to meet with me? I will let you go if you must.”

Frenzy sat up and responded, “I’d rather talk with you actually. Oh… your student, the one with the wind based abilities, he’s one tough contender I’ll give him that. You run one mean operation Xavier. I’m interested in hearing about this place from your perspective. When I listen to Trask go on about the X-men I feel like I’m sitting in on one massive propaganda session. I like to be fair.”

“Very well Joanna. I like that very much.” Charles then sat with her and began to explain his mission and mindset. He explained why Magneto changed and his vision for the future. Frenzy now seeing Charles’ vision, joined the X-men.

[inside the Danger room]

X-23 stumbled back some from the hit Logan gave her and shock it off. Her helmet had a very nice crack in it. She pulled it off and let helmet fall to the ground. Long black hair fell free. She had some build that was the same as Logan and Lady Death Strike. The two fought swapping blows equally. Logan was confirmed in his suspicions that X-23 was a copy of him. Perhaps Weapon-X still had his DNA copied to create a clone. That program sickened him. To Logan it was the most inhumane thing yet they persecuted mutants for being inhumane.

Vincent Took metal form and attacked Sabertooth. He delivered a swift punch to sabertooth that Sabertooth dodged by flipping over Vincent. Sabertooth kicked Vincent in the torso and sent him into a wall. He then pounced Vincent and pinned him to the wall. Vincent was well able to lift the pressure Sabertooth placed on him while in metal form. He punched Sabertooth in the jaw knocking him down. Vincent backed away, keeping an eye on Sabertooth.

“Why don’t you stop hiding behind that tin can metal skin and show me your REAL strength? Common, I know it stunts your Psionic power greatly. Show me what your Telekinesis can do, the telekinesis that even out does Charles Xavier. Well what do you say Vince…?” Sabertooth taunted he really wanted Vincent to focus his attention on him so that David could sedate him. Vincent then swapped forms and Sabertooth leaped with great swiftness at him. A few inches from Vincent’s face Sabertooth had stopped in midair by Vincent’s telekinesis. Sabertooth hovered in the air suspended by Vincent’s telekinesis. Vincent then slammed him into the danger room wall crushing him under the telekinetic force.

“You wanted a taste now you have it.” Vincent replied rather coldly. His exherted so much telekinetic force onto Sabertooth that he was actually smashing him into the metal walls of the danger room.

Meanwhile David nimbly dodged Philips time bombs. Hideki after timing things just right blasted David with his ‘fireworks’ but because of David’s suite, which refracts light energy, the blast of explosive colorful sparklers bounced off in multiple directions. Causing Philip and Hideki to dodge about.

David stopped and smiled at Hideki. Hideki took notice and it reminded him of the look Aidan O’doherty gave him the day before, one that shows someone has claimed something as their own. Hideki didn’t much care for that look. David then spoke smoothly “You know, you really remind me of myself, handsome with a power befitting your natural flare. Too bad my suite refracts light Matsuzaka, that would have been a pretty good shot, much like this one.” David then quickly pulled out a small energy plasma gun and shot Philip in the chest.

Philip fell backward and Hideki was startled. “Boomer!!” Hideki called out. Philip sat up and his skin seemed to glow. He stood and held his hands out and a undirected blast of pink energy shot out from Philips hands. David was knocked backwards a bit. He hit the ground shocked to see and feel that Boom-Boom had a power that their intelligence hadn’t warned them about, energy absorption and redirection. Philip didn’t often use this ability due to lack of control but this time it came in handy and he got lucky enough not to hit his teammate.

David noticed that this was his opportunity to sedate Vincent. He with the flick of the wrist pulled a sedative gun as he lay on the ground and shot a well-placed tranquilizer at Vincent’s neck. Vincent fell to his knees releasing Sabertooth from his telekinesis and the passed out. Philip and Hideki tried to run toward Vincent but as soon as their backs were turned David launched chords around both student’s necks and constricted them from behind. Hideki and Philip pulled at their leash like constraints struggling to get free while Sabertooth grabbed Vincent and darted out of the danger room doors. Leaving the mansion all together. Logan was so deadlocked with X-23 that he couldn’t pursue his predatory rival. David cut the constraints on Philip and Hideki and dashed out of the danger room. He shouted to X-23, “X-23 let’s move out! We got the weapon. Logan hope to see you soon old friend.” Sabertooth and David were nowhere to be found and Vincent had been officially kidnapped.

#, as written by KameJLa
Black Jack

During the battle, a figure stood on a branch, hidden within the leaves of the trees, just watching. With freshly polished black dress shoes, perfect, unwrinkled Armani black dress pants, a white button down silk shirt, with an equally unwrinkled black Armani suit jacket, with a beige trench coat, left unbuttoned, Travis made no move to help in anyway, even to those whom were suffering. A student, so he assumed, ran onto the property during the middle of the fight, taking Frenzy away from Cara. His eyes passed over Trask and his team, while keeping an eye out for just one.

He had worked with Trask in the past. Being a high bidder for his skills, he couldn't say no. He, himself, had done some things that others would consider, morally wrong, or disturbing. To him, it mattered but little. He did what needed to be done, and in his eyes, he didn't do anything wrong. Perhaps pushed the limits a little over the line. Others have said to him he was a savior, being able to erase any unwanted memories, such as deaths, bad break-ups, vicious attacks to name a few. Trask was not one that Travis would want to work with on a regular basis, regardless of the money he threw at him. He preferred to be able to choose his clients based on what they needed, and if they left the message correctly. Travis was a bit of a perfectionist, his clothes a good example. No wrinkles, perfect size, fit, and even the creases down the front were perfectly straight.

His eyes scanned over Xavier and Magneto. Travis had passed by Charles many times, and had even gone to a few of his speeches at the white house, explaining the Mutant Phenomenon. Travis respected Xavier. He approached situations with calmness, and logic. He did what he could for mutants, even making a school for them to go, be themselves, and control their powers. He had the best intentions not only for mutants, but for the future of the world as well. But no matter how good the intentions are, they are always met with setbacks, and those that won't/will never agree. Travis was positive that if Xavier saw him, he would recognize him.

Early on in his life, Travis agreed with a lot of what Magneto said, and did. Humans and Mutants would never learn to accept one another. Sure, there would be the odd few that would accept the other, but it wouldn't be enough. War would still break out. Many would lose loved ones on both sides, and today was a prime example. Trask, going all out just for one, would demolish the school, kill who needed to be killed, just to get what he wanted, not caring who he stepped over to get it, be it friends, foe, or his own flesh and blood. To prove his own point, Trask had brought his top guns. X-23, Agent Zero, Sabertooth, Frenzy, Stinger.

The battle was growing bigger, enveloping most of the Xavier Campus. It even got so close to Travis, that he took this time to teleport, vanishing from his spot in the tree, to inside the mansion. Specifically an office. The one he was watching for had not come outside, so they had to be still inside. The windows had been blown out. Glass, dirt, rocks and parts of the wall covered the floor. Glass cracked under his shoes as he scanned the room, never taking his hands from his pockets. He had studied a map of the Institute before making his way over to the school, and by the looks from outside, and the office, he was on the east side, an office most likely owned by one of the teachers. The room was useless to him, and so he vanished once again, this time appearing in front of an elevator shaft. The door opened, and Travis calmly walked in. The Doors shut, and it began it's decent downwards to the lower levels.

The elevator stopped, and just as the doors began to open, Travis teleported out, reappearing in the Control room. Below, in the danger room, he could see Vincent, Wolverine, X-23, Agent Zero, and a few of the students fighting with each other. At least the weapon is still here.. Again, the one he was looking for was not present in the Danger room, so he left, vanishing as quickly as he arrived.

Adria

She was taken to safety from Vincent, and rode the back of Ryan to the infirmary. While she was out, the battle continued. Vila had continued to hold her position in the Danger Room, while Aaiyah and Alexander dominated the surface. Agent Zero ended up taking Jonathan and Memory hostage, making them take him to the Danger Room. Cara and Stinger went neck and neck, while Logan couldn't give up a change to give it to Sabertooth. Xavier seemed to help those on both sides of the fence, while Sentinals made their entrance, tying Magneto up with their presence.

Adria didn't like what she was feeling while she was sedated. Like being in a vivid dream, she could feel something tugging at her core, her subconscious desperately trying to latch onto it. Even though she ran, she didn't move. There was darkness everywhere around her, and the only light was herself, and the white orb that she could not catch, no matter how hard she tried.

The water that engulfed her body put tremendous weight on her body from being compacted into a specific shape. Like her own power had turned against her, her eyebrows furrowed together, her lungs being rid of what air it had, and was replaced with little mouthfuls of water from her sudden gasps. The temperature had dropped, and for the first time in a long time, she could feel the coldness.

It was an odd feeling to feel life slipping from your very body, an experience Adria hadn't felt before. She`s had her fair share of wounds and blood loss, but nothing like this. It was suffocating. With her skin turning colors, Adria ran as fast as she could to the white energy orb. Slowly, but surely, she began to get closer, and eventually, what felt like years, she reached out to it. Her finger tips barely brushed it, and the next thing Adria knew, she was coughing up water, her lungs gasping for breath.

"Mission is complete."

Adria could hear Agent Six, but she never got the chance to see her. Her head pounded and her lungs hurt. She was bruised up on her side from the fight, but luckly, she didn't have any broken bones.

Adria + Black Jack

Travis had teleported to many different rooms, on the lower levels and top levels. He had no luck looking for who he wanted to, and their was only a few places left. The Infirmary was close by, so instead of teleporting, he simply walked. As he got closer, he could hear the sound of water splashing onto the floor, and someone coughing, like they were just saved from drowning. He only knew of one that could manipulate water at this institute, and that ment he was on the right track. The Infirmary door was slightly Ajar, Travis stopping in front looking through the crack.

"Mission is complete."

Pushing the door open, Adria looked over, ice blue eyes meeting Travis's brown ones. Before she could ask who he was, or where he came from, he disappeared, and reappeared beside her, his hand covering her eyes. "Been a long time Adria," he began, closing his eyes. "Sleep.. You'll feel better after."

Adria couldn't ignore what he said, her eyelids feeling like they had bricks hanging from the lids. Within seconds, she was out again. "Let me see what you've seen.." Travis whispered, the memories of the last few months playing for him like a movie on a big screen.

Aidan O’doherty

Aidan sat at home watching television. He had a long day at the hospital where he worked. There were several consultations with people that he could care a grain of salt about. The mutant human relations were getting much worse. Aidan cringed to see the Xavier mansion on television, being attacked. Nothing the news reporters on television sympathized with the school or students. Aidan wasn’t the most sympathetic person by a long shot but he definitely saw a problem with the lack of care about mutants being hunted down by the government. He had lived for a very long time, and had seen mutants punished and attacked throughout history. Times were becoming dangerous.

“It seems mankind is becoming a little too ignorant and brazen for my liking…” Aidan said as he watched the news footage from his couch. “I think history demands I strike some fear in the hearts of those ungrateful little gutter snipes. We mutants allow them to live here with us out of sheer grace and mercy, and this is the thanks we get? A dog that continues to bite his masters hand must be shot in the head.” Aidan decided that he would have to pay Charles Xavier another visit, much sooner than he had anticipated.

Vincent Xavier

As Sabertooth carried the sedated Vincent Xavier he chuckled. David looked a bit conflicted. The rendezvoused with the rest of the Weapon-X team that escaped and boarded a transport unit to head back to base. Sabertooth placed Vincent into a stasis pod so that he would remain sedated during transport. David looked puzzled at Victor. “What’s so funny Victor?” David said as he sat across from him.

Victor looked up at David after having been staring mostly toward the floor. “That guy really is somethin’ quite scary… Anyone that has me even a little frightened is a fucking person to be afraid of. He carried the look of a killer in his eyes the moment I started taunting him. He carries the fury of both his fathers and that ain’t nothin’ to trifle with.” Victor replied to David with a grin.

“Well it’s a good thing you know how to get under people’s skin otherwise we wouldn’t have been able to catch him off guard the way we did. He’s a pretty cool looking guy. I’d hop the fence for him.” David replied with a devilish smirk.

“You’re always hoppin’ the fence North.” Victor replied as he rolled his eyes. David most always played both sides of the field at his leisure. Victor only had to threaten David once that his piece of the field was off limits else Victor penetrate David’s gut with his claws. However, it was North that Victor spend the most personal time with oddly enough. The two could somehow trust each other, most likely because they were both highly efficient killing machines and could be more ruthless than most others.

“God I’m just not fully healing from that scuffle with him. That asshole almost shattered several bones while trying to damn near crush me.” Victor griped in annoyance.

“It’s a good thing he was still going easy on you. Knowing what the files said about his possible potential he should have been able to have brought down the entire danger room without much trouble. My guess is that he was trying to keep control and not fight Xavier’s locks on his powers. On another note, it seems Frenzy and Stinger turned coat on us. I’d figure that Wendy would do something fickle like that but Joanna surprised me.” David said in a thoughtful manner.

“I’m more surprised that you’re surprised North. I gotta say that those kids put up a pretty good fight. I almost crushed that Asian boy with the fireworks in my arms, just because I knew that it would really piss Logan off.” Victor reminisced.

David glanced up at Victor and then looked back down at the gun he fiddled with in his hands. “I liked that guy. He looks like me but chipper and less of a bastard than I. Also that Minerva girl… she was something else. Her brother looked like he could have gutted me good for even looking at her let alone holding her hand.” David was all smiles. “If either light bright or Memory girl asked me to join the X-men I probably would and retire.” David began to laugh at himself.

Victor cringed. “And that would be the day I actually would want to kill you. Jeez North you are crazy. But then again I don’t plan on sticking with Weapon-X and Trask too much longer anyway. I personally wanna kill him slowly. He lied to us to get us to join weapon-X in the first place. I guess I can’t blame Stinger and Frenzy for jumping ship.” Victor then smirked.

The transport unit arrived at the weapon X facility. With Stinger and Frenzy having joined the X-men and X-23 as a hostage, they were going to have to relocate seeing that their location was now compromised. Trask wasn’t worried in the slightest about X-23 telling the X-men anything, she’d rather die than to do that, also she never really spoke on a normal basis anyway so the X-men would likely not inspire her to start. The government was swift about their relocation techniques and within an hour the base was whisked away to another not too far off but just as secrete location.

Vincent had awoken, his eyes were heavy and the room was somewhat dark. He was strapped down to a metal table. The restraints placed on him were made with heavy adamantium metal including the locks. Vincent wondered where he was and what was happening. He looked to his left and right and noticed that he wasn’t as alone as he felt. He was surrounded by five petit sisters of blonde hair. They looked to be in a trance. They were concentrating, Vincent could feel it. They were telepaths no doubt about it. He tried to read their minds but they were strong. They were quintuplets and their powers were linked making them a formidable telepathic force.

Vincent struggled and asked, “Who are you? Where am I?” He shifted into his left and right as he asked anxiously.

The five young ladies, with eyes closed, replied in a trance like manner, “We are the Stepford Cockoos. Weapon-X desires your power be set free. Charles Xavier has locked your potential away. We undid the bindings that Kept the Phoenix locked inside of Jean Grey, setting her free. Charles Xavier has contain you in much the same way. We shall release you too. Where you are is not important. Who you are is.” The five ladies spoke in unison and never broke concentration.

Vincent was horrified at what was about to happen. He had already knew that he wielded a destructive power. He knew of the horrible trouble and chaos the Phoenix caused and hated a part of him-self for being like the Phoenix himself in a way. Vincent felt that he wasn’t meant to exist. He was someone’s weapon that tries to lead a normal life. Losing control, to him, reinforced the feelings of being a danger to others. Now these people were threatening to unleash what he hates most about him-self.

Trask walked into the room with his hands held military style/ at attention behind him. He stood over the table grinning at Vincent. The Cuckoos were silent and still concentrating. After a moment of staring Trask finally spoke. “My dear weapon, how nice it is to have you back! You don’t realize how long I’ve waited for you to be back in my grasp. The child of Magneto and Charles will finally realize his full potential! After Xavier tried to ruin my work of art by covering portions of it up! The fool!” Trask stood sinisterly over Vincent as if he personally was going to do the violating that was about to be done to Vincent’s life.

Vincent struggled and trying to get free. He first changed to metal form and tried to break through his restraints but Adamantium metal proved too much for him to overcome. He then tried to use his telekinesis to lift the restraints to free him-self. He was making progress until the Stepford Cuckoos hindered the use of his power. They were strong together, very strong. They suppressed his telekinetic powers. He then Vincent began to panic. He then shifted into metal form again, this way he could defend his mind from telepathic attacks. The Cuckoos were able catch Vincent before he could fully shift into metal form and suppressed that ability as well. Vincent struggled helplessly, he lay there turning red with fear and breathing heavily. His best chance was to try to defend him-self from their telepathic workings.

Trask added. “I won’t turn you into a mindless drone if you cooperate with me. You should be excited! This will turn you into the person you were created to be! You might experience some physical appearance changes but hey… you look good now you’ll probably look great after this so no worries, Agent V.” Trask said with a maniacal laugh. He ordered the Cuckoos to begin.

The women began to hum and they glowed. Vincent felt them prying open his mind and his X-gene. It felt like psionic hands smashing down the barriers that Xavier placed. Vincent fought hard to resist the physical changes he was feeling, he felt stronger with each seal broken and his cries for help were in vain. With his final seal broken from him he felt an alternate personality and presence in his body. It was strong and wanted to release its power. Vincent knew that to give into the desire and accept the power that was locked away, would change him forever. In a last ditch attempt to save himself from being taken over he used the sheer force of telepathy and will to divide the newly released portion of his X-gene away from the current portion of the X-gene he had always used, and expelled it from his body. That portion shot out from his body like a blue light and into a nearby embryo waiting to become a clone for Weapon X.

This was something that Trask had not accounted for. David and Victor looked on at the scene in amazement. They had never seen anything like this before. The machine that held the embryo that now held the other half of Vincent’s X-gene then exploded yet the embryo glowed and was protected. It floated in midair growing into a baby instantaneously. The growth and aging process didn’t stop until he was a grown man who looked much like Magneto, when Magneto was that age. The man opened his eyes he floated above the ground shattering most all of the glass around with his powers.

Trask was amazed. “Look at that!! His fighting our influence created a whole new being!! He’s magnificent!! My Agent V [OOC: Roman numeral 5] you’re my beautifully created mutant KILLING MACHINE!!! AAAAHAHAHAHAHAHA…..” Trask cackled loudly.

He lifted the metal the bound Vincent and set him free. “Set my brother free…” He said quietly. He began to destroy the lab sending metal flying everywhere. The Cuckoos tried to suppress him but the combined efforts of both he and Vincent subdued the women. The Stepford Cuckoos fled in fear of both mutants’ powers. They could not control Both Vincent and Agent V.

Trask ran for cover as both Vincent and the new mutant lay siege to the base. Trask tried to command David and Victor subdue the weapon. However David and Victor knew not to attempt to stop Vincent and Agent V. Victor grabbed Trask and positioned him so that he could snap Trasks neck. Trask struggled in Victor’s arms. The base was being ripped apart around them. “I ought to snap your pathetic little neck and rip your worthless skull off of your body right now, case I’ve been itchin’ to do it since I found out you lied to me. But I’m gonna let you go.” Victor released Trask. Trask was afraid breathing heavily.

David placed his magnum up to Trasks throat. “I suppose I should tell you why Victor and I won’t kill you for now at least. If we give you what you deserve now, then the dick that follows in your horrid footsteps, which there surely will be one, will be twice as annoying. So you be sure to keep a low profile okay. Else we might welcome the opportunity to waste another asshole for the sport of it. Now piss off you mutant hating son of a bitch.” David put his gun away and the two watched as Trask hightailed it out of the base.

Agent V turned to Victor and David. “You too are mutants, and if my brother, Vincent’s, memory serves me correctly, you are the two mutants responsible for attacking our father’s school and home, kidnapping Vincent. You have wronged your own kind, however I will give you another chance to reform and make peace with your mutant brethren. Come with us or be punished.” Agent V lowered him-self to the ground after having levitated above the ground. He stood naked before the others and not much concerned about it. Vincent felt comfortable with Agent V. He was a part of him but at the same time they were separate entities.

David and Victor looked at each other and then turned to Agent V once more before David replied, “We’re in so we’ll follow you. We’re done here.” Victor nodded in agreement. They were smart and knew when to take down. David thought, “It looks like we’ll be with the X-men for a while…”

Victor added, “First let’s get you some clothes. And second, if you wanna start a gang of mutants or at least rescue some, there’s someone locked away here called Agent six. We should spring her and bring her too.” Victor found a scientist hiding in fear and killed him on the spot by snapping the man’s neck.

Vincent snapped angrily, “MUST YOU DO THAT? Why did you kill him? He was just trying to survive!”

Victor replied, “Well VINCENT, your new brother needed clothes, even if they are crappy middle aged clothes. And, he’s trying to survive, just like us! You didn’t see him going out of his way for us or you whe you were trying to survive did you? Us mutants are tired of TRYING to survive, we WILL and ARE surviving, and if offing the rest of those worthless people is our ticket to survival then I say fucking be it!” Victor spoke harshly but honestly.

Vincent couldn’t respond. Agent V stared taking note of Victors words. They struck a chord with him. People like Trask needed to be punished. They were infectious. Mold that spread from one apple to the next. Agent V continued to ponder, “If humans were the beloved people that the world said could do no wrong, by the Bible’s standards they are Able. The mutants were and are the underdog, thus we are Cain. From this point further I am to be called Cain. The humans, no, Able gave me the name Agent V. It represents my stance of never being society’s stepping stool again.” Cain spoke with conviction. David and Victor smiled, they liked what they were hearing. Vincent could understand Cain’s feelings because he was linked with Cain in many ways, but he didn’t agree with the, at least not anymore.

After Cain got dressed in the dead scientist’s clothes, the group followed David to the chmbers that held Agent Six. Cain using the power of magnetism easily removed the heavy metal door. Revealing Agent six inside the small room alone. “Hello my friend. I’m Cain. We’re here to set you free.”

Outside the mansion

Stinger had stuck with Cara while she stubbornly checked out the wounds of the others. “I’m fine and so are they. Gee Cara, you have become SUCH the good teacher~!” Wendy teased.

Charles had heard Hideki’s thoughts. “Professor!! Vincent has been Kidnapped!!! They took him!! We tried to stop them but we just couldn’t I’m sooo sorry!!” Hideki’s thoughts rang loud and clear in the professors’ mind.

Charles turned to Erik and Pietro. “Vincent has been kidnapped… our fears have come to pass… Our son… Erik!” Charles was actually beginning to panic. Erik had no words but cried out loudly, most metal objects nearby trembled and or were crushed under the pressure of his anguish. “AAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!! They took MY boy!” Erik yelled.

Pietro gave Magneto a hug. “We’ll get him back father. Don’t you worry okay. I’ll just zip back to their base and scope the place out. I’ll be back in like ten minutes.” Pietro zoomed off before another word could be said. But unfortunately the Weapon-X group had already moved base. Pietro returned and reported the news. Everyone’s disposition seemed to fall drastically. The X-men were about to enter a time of much confusion.

Agent Six

She had awakened not too long ago and knew that Trask would commence with the Weapons Awakening, so she decided to watch for a bit. There was a small jug of water that was left for the scientist to drink water from but when the base was laid siege by the mutants they quickly ran for their worthless lives, leaving her in the room alone. So she uncapped the jug letting the water spill out of its container onto the floor. She took of her shoes and stockings off her feet and stepped onto the fast forming puddle of water.

She quickly searched for the room Trask was in and found it just as Sabetooth grabbed Trask while Agent Zero placed his magnum against his neck. “I ought to snap your pathetic little neck and rip your worthless skull off of your body right now, case I’ve been itchin’ to do it since I found out you lied to me. But I’m gonna let you go.” Victor released Trask. Which changed Agent Six’s view on him ‘so he is capable of mercy?’ but that quickly changed when he snapped the neck of a scientist giving the man who called himself Cain clothing that he would very much need when he and the Weapon escaped. "And second, if you wanna start a gang of mutants or at least rescue some, there’s someone locked away here called Agent six. We should spring her and bring her too.” This didn’t sit well with Agent Six for she knew just how much Sabertooth liked to mess with her so she still couldn’t fathom why he would think of her of all times.

As Agent Zero and Sabertooth led the group to her quarters Agent Six prepared herself for their arrival. She put her stockings and shoes back on and grabbed her parasol opening it up just as the door screeched open “Hello my friend. I’m Cain. We’re here to set you free.”

Agent Six continued to stare at the door and walked calmly out of the room. She stuck her hand out at Agent Zero grabbing his gun out of his hand and she pointed it at the ceiling and fired. The bullet caused the sprinklers to go off and she closed her parasol shoving it in Sabertooths face before he snatched it from her growling a bit then returned Agent Zeros magnum to him. Guessing from their expressions they were surprised at what she did but none of them said a thing as she continued down the hallway.

Charles Felt caught up in feelings of despair and sorry. He let his son down. He let his students and family down. The faces of each one of them flashed in his overwhelmed mind. He placed his face in his hands and wept. He then felt the gentle embrace of one that he could only be Mia. She was one of a sweet heart and she knew how to make one feel better, she didn’t have to say a word. Charles began to feel centered once again. He placed his hand over Mia’s and said, “Thank you Mia. I needed that.”, softly to her.

Fuyumi felt horrible. She thought back to earlier in the day when Vincent, Vila, and her were formulating their plan of action. They were to protect the students. But once they found out that the students weren’t the actual target she should have switched modes. She wished she had not have allowed the steady flow of things to sweep her into quick brash decisions. She racked her brain for ways to help make this right. Then it hit her, Cerebro. Fuyumi sprinted over to the professor who was crouched on the ground next to Mia, Erik and Pietro who all stood. “Professor you must use Cerebro! I’m sure you’ll get a location on where Vincent is if you search for him that way.” Fuyumi sounded flustered. She was usually very calm in disposition but today’s events proved to be a bit much for even her.

Charles looked up with a sense of hope. He was so grief stricken that he had forgotten all about Cerebro. Charles replied, “Yes… Fuyumi you’re right! I must go to Cerebro immediately. Erik will you see to the students? I also received another communication from Hideki in the danger room just now. It seems they managed to subdue a rather dangerous mutant who’s abilities seem to mirror Logan’s. I can trust only you to safely handle someone of that caliber Erik.” Charles said swiftly.

Erik stopped him before he could continue. “Charles, it’s alright. I’ll handle things here. Please find our son, I know you will. We need your calm disposition more than ever right now. Vincent will be fine and you will find him. Don’t you worry.” Erik gave Charles a gentle smile and helped him to his feet. Charles nodded in response and headed off to the danger room swiftly.

Erik then levitated off of the ground high enough for all to see him. He then spoke calm and authoritatively to the group outside the mansion. “Listen well everyone. I know today’s incident was indeed difficult. Today we were attacked by people who are afraid, afraid of you for your strength, afraid of you for what you have been blessed with. Fear stems from misunderstanding. They don’t understand us and thus out of fear they tried to harm and destroy us. But we mustn’t harden our hearts and close our minds off to the mission we all believe in. Vincent, my son…, has been taken from us. However, we WILL find him. We won’t let Weapon-X claim a member of our family, as X-men, and as a Mutant family! Charles is using Cerebro to locate Vincent now. The best thing for us to do is to be strong, be proud, and carry onward believing that our future will be better than our pasts! You all have made me very proud today. Charles is proud of you. You stood up for each other and fought hard not to kill even though they tried to kill us. I know how hard it is to come from a place of killing humans without a thought, to protecting those very humans that would rather see me dead. It’s difficult to love someone who hates you. But love suffers long for its cause and so shall we until our desired end is met, harmony. Rest now, tend to your wounds, continue to support one another. Know that all is well.” With that, Erik lowered himself down to the ground and headed into the mansion.

Fuyumi felt relieved after Erik’s speech. He was so charismatic and a natural leader. Fuyumi noticed some of the other’s dispositions improving slightly. However one person’s disposition showed they needed a little tending to. Fuyumi calmly walked over to Ryan and sat down beside him. She placed a hand on Ryan’s shoulder. “Ryan, don’t you worry. You were so brave today. I’m sure Adria will greatly appreciate saving her. Vincent looked proud to see you all work so well together in the middle of danger. You did what was best for the team and I know for sure he’d be proud of that. I believe that for myself as well. I wish I could have stayed by his side, but there were others that needed me too. I believe he’ll return to us, in one piece.” Fuyumi then gave Ryan a gentle hug. She liked Ryan for his gentleness and strong spirit. He took things so seriously and tried his best. She was very much the same way when she was younger.
Kyle stood next to Scott who looked as upset about today’s event’s as he did. He noticed Scott’s face cringe when he heard that Vincent was taken. Scott was definitely silently dealing with a great deal of anger and disappointment. Kyle looked on as Jonathan tried to console Memory, who seemed to be breaking down. Jonathan was most likely hurting heavily as well, but he needed to be strong for Memory and he was doing a very good job. Kyle wondered how his best friend was doing. Hideki was there when Vincent was captured. Kyle was sure Hideki wasn’t in the best head space. Kyle wasn’t in the best head space. He felt kind of useless. He wished he had been more helpful than he was. He wasn’t exactly sure of what would happen to Vincent but he prayed silently to on the spot that Vincent would be okay.

Kyle didn’t cry or look angry. He simply stood silently next to Scott and watched everyone else. He did however look disappointed. Kyle was a very interesting individual. He was very personable and quite the people person. However he had a very existent lonely side to him. He developed that way of being during the time when he couldn’t control his absorption abilities thus he couldn’t touch anyone. This problem had persisted for nearly two and a half years before he was able to be helped. He was used to being the charming guy you could see but never really get close to. Even now that people could get close to him, it was hard for him to take down those inner barriers that he placed up long ago. Vincent was a good friend to Kyle. Kyle could only imagine how hard Philip was taking the situation. Kyle thought to himself, “Whe the professor locates Vincent, I’ll fly as far as I need to so that I can meet up with him and make sure he gets home safely. I promise.”

Hideki plopped down on the floor of the danger room. He was tired and upset. He was relieved that X-23 had finally been subdued but Vincent was gone. He felt terrible having to tell the Professor that he failed to help his son. As much as Hideki beat himself up on the inside he tried to keep a slightly upbeat disposition on the outside. He never liked to look down and sad if he could help it. “Today was not a very good day…” He commented.

Philip looked on at the pile of rock and vines X-23 was constricted in. He stood looking on as if he were in a trance. His breathing was broken and winded. His eyes began to tear at the thought of his lover being snatched away from him and he couldn’t protect him. He began to weep heavily and didn’t wipe away a single tear. “Why… why… wasn’t I strong enough? I couldn’t save him… what kind of boyfriend am I?” Philip criticized himself.

Logan walked over to Philip and placed a hand on Philip’s shoulder. “Look kid, the guys we were facing were nothing easy to overcome. They aren’t just strong but as tricky as they come. There was no way we could have planned for this. You did what you could. This doesn’t mean you can’t protect who you love or that he ain’t comin’ back. We’ll get him and we’ll make Trask pay big time for this I swear.” Logan knew that Trask was to blame for all of this. It fit his M.O. perfectly. Philip seemed to take well to Logan’s encouragement and slowed in his weeping. Logan then turned to Vila, “Thanks Vila. You did an excellent job at keeping little miss assassin under wraps.” Vila didn’t say anything, but nodded as she left out of the danger room. Logan knew that Vila was taking this as hard as Charles, Erik, and Philip did.

Erik shortly afterward entered the danger room. His face was stern looking. He walked over to Hideki and helped him to his feet. “Thank you, all of you for helping my son as best you could. I do not take that lightly.” Erik the turned to Philip. “Philip my boy, I know… I know… but continue to be strong enough to believe that Vincent will be fine. Charles is looking for him right now with Cerebro. A mutant of Vincent’s strength will not be hard to spot with Cerebro.”

Erik then looked at the pile of stone and vines that held X-23 captive. He scowled at the pile angrily. With a wave of the hand he brushed the heavy stones aside using his power and levitated X-23 in the air. She was just like Logan indeed, with an Adamantium coated skeleton. X-23 was stuck in one position, as if she were standing at attention with floating in the air. “When will Trask learn that coating things in such an alloy is simply a heavy handicap? I’ll bring her to the holding cell myself. You all should tend to your wounds and get rest as best you can. Things from this point forward will not be easy.” With that Erik turned and walked out of the danger room taking X-23 with him.

He brought her to the confinement cell that was actually tested to be able to hold a mutant even as strong as Logan and stronger. He hurled the assassin into the cell using his power. He had very little remorse for the deadly mutant. Erik knew a stone cold killer when he saw one. He grew up suppressed and threatened by them every day in his youth. He said only one thing to X-23 before leaving her in the containment area alone and secure. “You, young one, are very fortunate that I am a changed man. Charles’ rubbing off on me has saved your miserable life more than you know… the old me would have ripped your bones apart and beat the remains with them but I have learned to suppress such uncontrolled and vicious urges. Do know that I can smell your bones miles away. So if you did manage to escape, you won’t be getting far before you feel your head begin to snap from your body. Just a bit of encouragement for you to be a good girl and behave.” Erik’s tone was composed but very serious. He meant every word and could more than back it all up.

Erik left the holding area and met with Charles. The room that contained Cerebro was enormous. The large spherical room had one extended platform from the room’s entrance. At the end of the platform sat Charles at the station that carried the helmet that the user would use to operate the machine. Only telepaths could operate Cerebro and not just any telepath could effectively use it the way Charles or Vincent could. It amplifies the telepathic strengths of the user. Erik slowly approached Charles. “How’s the search. Have you found him?” Erik asked, sounding like a worried parent whose child hasn’t returned home after curfew.

Charles was about to reply that he had not yet located Vincent but he, just then, picked up on Vincent. “I’ve just located him Erik!! He was miles away in an underground base. He and several others have escaped it seems and the base has been destroyed. But something puzzles me and concerns me. It appears that I am sensing double signatures on Vincent’s X-gene. There is another present with him that shares Vincent’s reading. This is much different than clones like the young lady in captivity right now. She has a different signature than Logan. But it is as if there is two of our son.” Charles explained. He had communicated with Vincent and instructed him that he would be sending Scott in the blackbird to go pick him and his companions up soon. They would be back at the mansion in a couple of days.

Charles then proceeded to inform everyone else telepathically that Vincent was alright. “Everyone there is good news. I have located Vincent and he is alright it seems. I will have Scott and Logan fly to his location to pick him and his companions up. Rest easy and thank you all for your bravery and strength today. To all of our guests please make yourselves at home. I will have repairs initiated as soon as possible. I will aim to keep you all posted on the status of things.” With that Charles ended his telepathic communication with the others.

The next day had arrived and things were busy at the mansion. Repairs were underway and everyone was given the day off from all meetings and classes. They were encouraged to take it easy. Scott, Logan, and Philip set out to pick up Vincent. The trip would take a little while. They weren’t aware that David, Sabertooth, Agent Six, as well as Cain were the extra people that would be accompanying them back to the mansion. They were in for a deadly reunion…

Kyle and Hideki

Kyle happened to be looming about the mansion in a blah sort of mood. There were many people about the mansion pretending not to be bothered and others that didn’t even attempt to pretend. Kyle usually went about the mansion stalking the cute guys and laughing at how he made them feel uncomfortable when he flirted with them playfully. However today was much different. He was in a mood of solitude and desired to be mostly an observer of others. He walked past the Art room. There were a few people there including Jonathan, Ace and Ryan. Jonathan caught his eye. Kyle leaned against the door of the art room quietly so that no one would notice him. Ryan and Jonathan were talking a little.

Kyle whispered to himself, “I didn’t Know Jonathan and Ryan painted.” Kyle’s parents were painters and photographers back in France. They taught him to excel in their crafts as well. He always appreciated a good painting or interesting photo, but he chose to be the center piece of the art by becoming a model. Kyle wanted to say something to the boys but as they approached the door he ducked back against the wall and swiftly flew around the corner. “Where was Memory? She’s almost always with Jonathan. She was taking things rather difficultly yesterday.” Kyle said to himself.

Kyle thought back to earlier that morning. He had asked the Professor if he could be allowed to tag along with Logan, Scott and Philip when they went to rendezvous with Vincent. He had promised himself that he’d help find Vincent in any way that he could. However the professor wouldn’t allow it. “You must take it easy and rest Kyle. Scott, Logan, and Philip can handle this. Besides, there are others here at the mansion that need you more. Hideki could use a good distraction right now.” Kyle remembered the professor’s words and he smiled. He decided to visit Hideki.

Hideki sat in the library slightly depressed. He decided to create a sword of light. Magneto had been coaching him lately with the use of his power and creating light energy objects that were actually tangible. It took so much concentration to do so Hideki decided to stop and try something simpler. He placed his hands together and created a ball of light. That ball of multicolored light swirled and moved about serenely. From the ball flew a butterfly of light that fluttered around creating sparkles where it flew. Hideki felt much better when looking at the delicate creature of light. It was carefree and he felt carefree for a moment. He just wished that he’d feel better after the butterfly was no more too.

Kyle walked into the library, searching from aisle to aisle for Hideki. There he found him, seated at the back of the library at a small table near a window. The sunlight fell peacefully onto Hideki and the surrounding area. The butterfly Hideki created gracefully flittered over to Kyle, once Hideki realized that Kyle was watching him. The butterfly landed on the tip of Kyle’s nose and batted it’s wings a couple of times before flittering off toward the light from the window and fading away into the golden sunshine. “That was pretty nice I see you’ve found your distraction.” Kyle said with a smirk.

The two students stalked for a while and then decided to head downstairs to the common area and watch television. Once they reached the common area the say Stinger. She was seated on the couch, legs crossed, and flipping through channels. She was obviously very bored. Kyle was at first a bit hesitant to sit next to her. She was just yesterday their enemy. She seemed to know Cara, and Kyle thought perhaps if Cara knew about Stinger, she could have possibly known about the attack on the mansion. As Hideki sat down seemingly without a care Kyle stood deep in thought. “Kyle you alright?” Hideki asked.

“Oh, I’m fine. I must have been spacing out.” Kyle replied with a quick smile. Kyle sat down and Stinger began to talk. “So you boys know of any good malls around here? I’m dying to do some spending therapy. Cara’s off getting all medicated, I don’t do manual labor so helping to fix the joint is out of the question and TV has failed me miserably today.” Stinger spoke to the students like she was unaware of the previous day’s circumstances. They were shocked at her whimsical disposition.

Hideki brightened up when he heard the word mall. “Do I ever!” He replied. Kyle rolled his eyes as Stinger and Hideki chattered on about their future shopping expeditions.

Fuyumi Abe

Fuyumi had helped out with a few things around the mansion. There were several things that needed to be taken in and out of rooms that were too large to fit through doors, so Fuyumi phased them through the walls for the professor. She decided to take a break and sit outside for a while. The sky was pretty sunny and the breeze was pleasant and soft. She wondered if Vincent had suffered any while captured. She truly hoped that things would remain peaceful for a while. She then heard a familiar voice approach her, “Fuyumi! Is everyone ok?!”

The voice belonged to Mutt Ant the mutant enthusiast. Fuyumi smiled as the man approached her. “Mutt! It’s been a while! Yes everyone is fine for the most part. Nothing too major on the physical injury side of things but emotionally we’ve been hit pretty hard. Vincent, Professor Xavier and Magneto’s son, was kidnapped by Weapon-X yesterday. They are the ones who attacked the Mansion. The good news is that the professor was able to locate Vincent and he seems okay. Scott, Logan and Philip are headed to go pick him up. I hope you aren’t too bothered by the state the mansion’s in.” Fuyumi replied calmly. Mutt could be a little strange at times but his heart was always the one to speak volumes for his genuine spirit.

Vincent and Cain

Miles away from the destroyed Weapon-X facility, Vincent, Cain, Sabertooth, David, and Agent Six walked seemingly aimlessly along a hot sun. They were on a road that seemingly rarely had traffic. They had walked a long way. Vincent and Cain lead the group walking side by side. Agent Six trailed just a few paces behind them. David and Victor followed up the rear. Victor looked up at the sun and cringed, “You mind telling me why we were allowed to take one of the many vacant Weapon-X vehicles and just drive back to the mansion Hmm?” Victor’s voice clearly showcased his annoyance. He peered at the back of Cain’s head with one eye squinted.

Cain turned around and replied with a calm that only showcased a subliminal hint of his serious anger. “I refuse to use anything that was created to hunt, hurt and kill our kind. We’re better off without Weapon-X’s trinkets.” When they were still at the Weapon-X facility, Victor and David wanted to simply steal a Weapon-X car but Cain wouldn’t let them. Victor knew he couldn’t challenge Cain and decided to take down to the superior mutant.

Vincent added, “Well in Victor’s defense, it would be better for us to hitch a ride or something. It’s pretty hot out here an I’m not quite sure how close the nearest town is. Here’s my plan, I’ll scan the area for a motorist and when they drive by, you all ask for a ride I will get them to stop for us by using my empathic powers. Is that alright?”

David quickly agreed. “That’s a magnificent plan of action. Let’s get to it.”

About five minutes later they caught the attention of a family in a mobile home. They were to travel to upstate New York. Vincent using his empathic abilities had the family decide to help the group. The father of the three member family was a short and simple little Caucasian man with round glasses. His wife was also petit and blonde. She seemed pretty gentle and a Texan. Both parents looked to be in their 30’s. Their son was about six years old and had very light brown hair. He was excited about having the group on board. It gave him something more interesting to look at.

The mother spoke first once the group of mutants got settled in the tiny mobile home. “So where y’all comin’ from?” The woman smiled like a pageant queen, She was very pretty. “We’re traveling from Virginia to our new home in upstate New York. My Husband’s originally from Virginia and I’m from Texas. Y’all seem like a motley bunch!”

Cain replied first. “We actually just escaped a government facility that was created to, in genocidal manner, wipe out all mutants from existence. We are now trying to make it back to the only safe haven known to mutants the Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr School for Gifted Students.” There was a silence in the RV. Vincent put palm to face and sighed.

The father of the family slowed down the car slightly. He needed to process what he was hearing. “Y-you are mutants?” The man asked nervously.

The son jumped in joy at the thought of them being mutants who were like the comic book characters he was a fan of. “Wow you’re mutants!! That’s awesome!” He dashed from his mother’s lap and jumped toward David who was seated across from her. He hugged onto David and he realized that David had no discernible smell. Something like that didn’t always stick out until you were close to David, and you realized that you usually smell something on others whether good or bad but with David there was and absence of aroma. The boy looked up at David’s face and asked, “You don’t smell like anything Mr. usually somebody smells like something how come you don’t?” The boy asked innocently and curiously.

David smiled and returned the boy’s hug. “You are such a bright boy! That’s right I don’t have a discernible scent. Your parents must be smart too.” David said as he glanced up at the boy’s parents as if to say, ‘Pull something dumb and we will kill you.’

The father pulled over the RV and turned around pleading with the group. “Please don’t harm us. We don’t want trouble.”

Vincent quickly intervened, “Neither do we. We simply want to return home. Would you and your family help us? We’ve gone through a long and tough couple of days. We mean you no harm.” Vincent using him empathic ability calmed the family to a relaxed state. They weren’t nearly as agitated as before.

Cain added, “You assume we are dangerous and want to cause trouble because we have powers. But your fear is horribly misplaced. Humans wield a power far more deadly than any mutant power, prejudice and hatred. Those are weapons that continue to live and to destroy others throughout time, yet humans are so blind to it’s everyday use in persecuting mutant kind.” Cain was very serious and passionate. Vincent could feel his heart and his emotions, both men were one. Vincent understood Cain’s pain because it was his own, however the two chose to handle it differently.

The mother replied nervously, “Well… I never looked at it that way. I’m so sorry for making y’all feel uncomfortable in my mobile home. We learned us a valuable lesson today didn’t we honey! Mutants ain’t all bad like the news portrays them to be. We’ll take you where you wanna go no problem. And when we move into our nice big house upstate, y’all are more than welcome to home over for dinner!” The lady was simple but sweet. Her husband nodded in agreement. Vincent was very glad that the conflict was resolved.

A bit afterwards Vincent received a telepathic communication from Charles. “Vincent, Scott, Logan and Philip are in the BlackBird and nearing your location. They will pick you up.” Charles’ communication was filled with the sound of joy. He was very happy to communicate with his son.

Vincent replied telepathically, “Good to hear your voice dad. I have a view unlikely companions with me… we’ve hitched a ride in an RV. We’ll ask the family to drop us here then.”

Charles replied, “Alright son. I’ll communicate that with Scott. Everyone misses you more than you know.” With that the transmission ended.

The little boy asked, “Um mister, what are you up to?” He noticed Vincent holding his hand up to his head.

Vincent smiled gently, “I’m communicating with my Father telepathically. I’m a telepath, I can communicate with people in their minds as well as move thing with my mind.” Vincent turned to the father and notified him that they could be dropped off at their current location.

The little boy jumped up and down. “Wow sooo cool!!”

Vincent replied, “Yes, it can be but it takes a lot of studying and training to understand my gift. I have to study hard so that I can be wise about using my power. I should never be irresponsible or I could get into trouble. So remember you have to train your mind and study hard too. Promise?” Vincent smiled face to face with the boy.

“Promise!” The little boy replied with a wide smile.

Victor huffed, “Now I want a kid… It’s really time to go.” David chuckled upon hearing Victor’s complaining.

The family dropped the group off and Vincent was sure to get the family’s information so that once day they could meet again. The family drove off and the Blackbrid came into view overhead. The jet lowered down to the ground and opened its door. Philip ran outside of the Blackbird and jumped into Vincent’s arms. “Vincent I’m so sorry… I- I let you down. Are you alright?”

Vincent hugged Philip tightly and closed his eyes. He was so glad to be in the arms of the one he loved so dearly. Cain watched and immediately felt a pang in his heart. He felt an overwhelming love when Philip drew near. He was experiencing Vincent’s emotions. He knew who Vincent knew, he felt how Vincent felt about others. He loved Philip like Vincent loved Philip. It was truly and odd phenomenon. Cain tried to keep himself from blushing and to steady his breathing. Vincent replied, “It’s alright Philip… It’s alright… I find no fault with you or anyone else. It couldn’t have been helped. We must get back.” Vincent was calming.

Philip replied, “Alright love.” Philip looked up and noticed the others. He was shocked to see Sabertooth, David North, Vincent’s very captors. “Wha-what are they doing here?!” Philip shouted.

Just then Logan and Scott stepped out of the black bird to examine the situation. Logan immediately extended his claws. “GET HIM OUTTA HERE!!” He said in a rage and motioned toward Sabertooth.

Victor grinned. “Aww Logan… you’re not happy to see me? What a shame! I’ll be sticking around the X-men for a while. Who knows I might even pick up teaching like you did and turn all soft.” Victor taunted with a huge smile.

Logan replied angrily, “Shut-Up YOU EGG SUCKIN’ PIECE OF GUTTER TRASH!! As long as he’s here I’m gonna be somewhere else!!”

Vincent interjected, “Logan please…”

Cain jumped in before Vincent could add anymore. “Why must we fight our brothers? We should work together not be at each other’s throats.” Cain spoke calmly.

Logan shot Cain a quick angry look, “Who the HELL are you?!”

“My brother, or to put it more accurately, he’s another me.” Vincent replied.

Scott, having heard enough said, “Alright, does the professor know about you wanting to bring them back to the mansion? They are a danger to everyone. Did weapon-x screw with your head or something?”

Cain got in Scott’s face, “They sure tried to screw with his head and everything else but he fought back, together! That how it should be for all mutants fighting together not against one another in distrust. Charles knows about them. If they pull something, I will kill them on the spot.” Cain placed a hand on Agent Six’s shoulder indicating that she wasn’t included in those that he threatened.

Logan cringed, “Just great… another magneto…”

Charles Xavier

Charles returned to his office after leaving Cerebro. The was a knock on the door. Charles sensed the situation and smiled. A new student was here. He was overjoyed that although the mansion had been attacked and things were not their safest at the mansion, others weren’t afraid to come to seek safety at the X-men mansion. Charles was relieved, “Perhaps I haven’t failed after all.” He said to himself. Charles walked to the door and opened it.

“Hello Annabelle, I’m Charles Xavier. Welcome to the Xavier and Lehnsherr School for Gifted students.”

Charles ushered Annabelle into his office and offered her a seat. “I hope you’ll excuse the state of the mansion, we had an emergency situation yesterday and it took quite a toll on the place. So what brings you to our school?”

Agent Six

after her little shoot out they left the facility sometime ago and had been walking for sometime in the sun. she heard Sabertooth complain about not having a car but she wasnt bothered a bit by the sun since she had her parasol with her providing her with cool shade.twirling it she walked taking careful steps she didnt have much of a reflective surface other than a shard of glass she had picked up earlier.

despite the fact that she was well aware of their discomfort of walking in the hot sun she explored a little but found no towns or place of human dwellings anywhere near them. at least before they ran into a vehicle of 3 human people. the humans let them ride with the help of the Weapons power.

she gave no indication of ever actually interacting with others as they rode. upon hearing they were mutants the father she assumed slowed the vehicle down just the slightest. "please dont hurt us" she ignored the man and focused more on the child that seemed to have taken a likeing to them. Cain gave them a big lectrue about humans fearing mutants but she couldnt quite understand where he was going with it. she could hear the passion he had in his voice but she couldnt understand why he was so passonaite about it.so she stopped listening to him and focused more on the boy who noticed Agent Zero had no scent.

hearing him bounce about the vehicle with excitment she more or less stared at nothing. getting tired of the boy she decided to focus more on the plane that was headed their way that she had spotted earlier trying to place an observer spirit on the plane and she realized it was going to fast for her stay on properly. the vehicle stopped and she imeidetly got up and walked off taking the steps with ease. one would think she would have trouble with this as she was blind but with the help of her observer spirit she was fine.

the others followed suite and the plane she saw earlier landed before them. she didnt move fom where she stood despite the wind it caused. finally able to place an observer spirit on it she quickly dissolved the one on the vehicle and placed it on the plane giving it a quick look over. she recognized two people; Wolverine and Cyclops and a younger man. the younger man ran out and hugged the Weapon as if he hadnt seen him in a life time while apologizeing to him.

the young man philip as the Weapon called him realizing who accompanied him,shouted out in shock. Wolverine and Cyclops getting off the plane and also took notice of those who accompanied the Weapon. Wolverine drawing his claws aproaching Sabertooth who simply joked about the whole thing. the Weapon tried explaing but Cain stepped in giving another little speech of muntant unity and in return Wolverine lashed out at him not knowing who Cain was. which the Weapon explained was him in a way.

Wolverine still upset Cyclops asked if the Weapon told his 'father' about all this asking him if weaponX messed with his head. Cain intervened once more with mutant brotherhood promising the X-man that he would kill any of them on the spot but excluded her when he placed his hand on her shoulderwhich then seemed to stare at before returning her gaze back to nothing, not once did Agent Six's expression changed and simply stared at what was infront of her but if one looked close enough it would look almost like she was frowning.

Tired of just standing there listenjng as the others argued. shrugging off Cain she walked towards where she assumed was the entrance of the plane. her observer spirit had died out from exhaustion. so she was blind;not that it bothered her, it did bother Wolverine a bit as she was about to walk past him, he said something to her and she could feel something come her way. most people would have thought she triped and feel instead of dodgeing but she did;in her own strange way. before completly hitting the ground she moved her feet and used her momentum to stand back up. and continued walking towards the plane. suddenly she heard a high pitch sound in her ear.'not now of all times, my body must not healed all the way after useing that'and the small girl fell to her knees then her whole body with a small 'thwump' trying to get back up but failing,only manageing to sit up. Agent Six said one word, "Ow".
