[ERROR] No.43761669 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

You are Siris Erickson, and you are a mutant. This is hardly surprising, considering both of your parents are mutants, and you grew up surrounded by mutants. Despite being somewhat of a late bloomer with your powers, the leaders of the Xavier Institute saw incredible potential in you and your abilities. With the ability to control the wavelength and frequency of light, as well as emit light from your body, you could theoretically do incredible things, although that is currently limited to a limited control over the light in the surrounding area and the ability to concentrate light into a laser. Both of which tend to give you painful headaches, and you can only do those with the help of a specially created suit. You were accepted into the Xavier Institute mid-year despite the late arrival of your powers, and you have been accepted into the Paragons squad.

You’re still thinking about what you saw between Rahne and Josh when class finishes. You know there’s another team exercise today, so you meet up with the rest of the team. It doesn’t take too much time for Rahne to show up after that, but she’s doing her best to avoid looking directly at you. “Alright, team. Today you’re going to be going up against another team, alright? This isn’t a simulation, so be careful.” Just as she’s about to continue, you hear another voice from outside the classroom, “Exactly, children,” Emma Frost says, as she enters the classroom. “Your mutant powers are gifts, but they are dangerous. Be careful, for your own safety, and the safety of each other.” The hellions begin entering the room, and Julian locks eyes with you, a cocky grin on his face.

Match raises his hand, “Alright, so, what’s the challenge? What are we doing?” You could swear you almost see Ms. Frost smile as she speaks, “It will be a combat challenge, one team pitted against the other, but with a twist. Sometimes when out in the field, one must cooperate with people they would otherwise be opposed to. So, the teams will be scrambled.” Rahne nods, looking down at a clipboard. “The first team will be lead by Match, and will include Tag, Preview, Wolf Cub, DJ, and Wither.” You look around at the other people gathered, that leaves your team with... “The second team will be lead by Hellion, and will include Pixie, Lighthouse, Mercury, Rockslide, Dust, and Trance.” Rahne looks up, and looks around the class room. “Alright, both teams will have a short amount of time to come up with a plan before we head to the Danger Room and actually commence the exercise. The goal is to incapacitate in some way the entirety of the enemy team.”

You approach your new team. Hellion looks around with a grin, “Alright, we gotta win this. Anybody have any ideas?”

>> No.43761863

>>43761791
Hellion has telekinesis.
Pixie has wings.
Mercury's body is made out of liquid mercury.
Rockslide's body is made out of rocks, and he can detach and reattach his body parts, along with super strength and shit.
Dust can turn herself into dust.
Trance has astral projection and can fly, and shoot blasts in her astral projection form.

>> No.43761973

>>43761863
We start with Flashing the other team, then Hellion throws a Rockslide at them with Mercury following suit, while Trance goes up high to rain down hell upon them. Dust plays defence protecting us and Hellion. Pixie flies around or some shit.

You nod, “I’ve got a plan. I blind the enemy team with my power, Julian, you throw Rockslide at them, and Mercury goes after him. Trance can supply covering fire, and Pixie can serve as a distraction.” Hellion nods, crossing his arms over his chest. “Alright, that plan seems like it’ll work, but remember, I’m the leader. What I say goes when we’re on the field.” No one seems to really want to argue with him, and you aren’t exactly interested in being a leader, so you keep your mouth shut. Just as both teams finish their plan, Emma calls out, “Alright, now, everyone to the Danger Room.”

When everyone arrives at the Danger Room, Rahne and Emma Frost head up to the control room, and after a few moments, the metallic surfaces fade away, replaced with a thick jungle. You can’t see the other team, but Hellion nods, “Alright, stick to the plan. We need to stick together, and be prepared for anything. Pixie, fly up, see if you can see where they are, but don’t go too far. They have an advantage in finding us, so we need to stay prepared.” Megan nods, and flies up above the treeline.

If dust can disperse herself as a cloud, the light atttacks can use her to create a blinding glow much easier, like with a fog cloud, or bright light hitting a dust cloud. It would conserve effort, less headache. Liquid mercury body could be used as a reflecting surface as well, and used to further use the light attacks.
Stone body that is segmentable is handy.. he could be dispersed among team members and hidden til needed, then reassembled with surprise. Even could hide in with stones. ANd if he can reconfgure, he can be worn by others as armour.

You sigh, and settle in to wait. You don’t exactly like Hellion, but he’s been doing this longer than you have, and he actually seems to know what he’s doing. You prepare your lightshow, keeping ready for Julian’s mark. Suddenly, from above, you hear Pixie shout. “I see Match’s flame! I know where they are!” Hellion grins, his eyes glowing a pale green. “We’ve got ‘em then. Alright, let’s move, team!” The rest of your new teammates follow after Julian, and you begin to reluctantly follow him, but you can’t shake the feeling that something’s wrong. Match is impulsive, but he’s not stupid.

You decide to keep following Hellion. At the very least, there’s strength in numbers, and, of course, you could learn something, even if you fail. You still voice your concerns, though, “Hey, look. Match is a pretty bright guy. He’d probably make decoy flames, or something. I doubt he’d really just let us know where his team is.” Hellion doesn’t even stop to think on it, “You have a better idea, Glowstick? Even if it is a trap, we can beat them with no trouble.” You want to argue, but force yourself to let it go, and follow your temporary leader.

You hear a rustling in the deep jungle on both sides of you. You’re barely able to react fast enough to duck out of the way of Wolf Cub lunging towards you. You could even hear the kid apologize to you, as you ducked under his attack. After Wolf Cub, DJ and Wither step out of the trees. Hellion grins, as he floats into the air, a bright green glow surrounding him. “Hellions, hit ‘em hard!” He yells, and picks up a tree with his telekinesis and hits Wolfcub with it, sending the mutant back at least several feet.

You decide to focus your attacks on Wither, recognizing that he could do the most potential damage. You take aim and fire, but your attack was disrupted when DJ fires his blasts at you. You dodge them, but only just, and you miss Wither. You can feel your head starting to hurt again, but you push through the pain, intent on at least seeing this through. Santo sends his detached fist at DJ, knocking him out. Hellion swings the tree at Wither, but Wither holds his hand out and grabs the tree first, turning the tree into ash in a manner of seconds. That means Wolf Cub, and DJ are down, but that still leaves Match, Tag, and Preview unaccounted for. Mercury quickly snakes her way along the ground towards Wither, and knocks him out with a strong punch.

You don’t exactly have time to celebrate, as you recognize the smell of something burning. Match and Tag appear soon after. Match launches a few fireballs at your team, focusing his fire on Hellion.

You reach out with your mind, and get a handle on the light being produced and coming off of Match’s head. You decide to try something you haven’t done before, and get rid of all the light there. It only takes a moment before there’s complete darkness surrounding Match’s head. Your headache only gets more painful, more so than it was the first time you messed with your power. You fall to the ground, the pain overwhelming. Luckily enough, the pain fades as you fall into unconsciousness.

You wake up after what feels like only a few seconds, although you’re not in the jungle anymore, or even in the danger room. You’re in what must be the infirmary. The pain in your head has reduced to only a slight throbbing. You sit up, and look around. Rahne’s sitting in a chair next to your bed, and once you sit up, she looks over, “Oh, Siris! How are you feeling?” You shrug, “I’m alright, I suppose. I've, y'know. Been better.” Rahne nods, she’s talking to you, and making eye contact, but talking to her still seems awkward.

Headmaster Summers said the Paragons were more willing to work with an enemy team, and you helped with that quite a bit. Doctor McCoy said that you did too much at once. You made some incredible progress though, he said it was very impressive. I’d agree with him. The rest of your team was worried about you, although you might want to apologize to Match. He wasn’t very appreciative of that stunt you pulled.” She rests one hand on your knee and meets your gaze, “Siris, everything will be okay, alright? That... thing with Josh? It was a... mistake. A lapse in judgement, and I ended it.”

I have some... business I need to take care of.” As Rahne leaves the infirmary, she leaves the door open, and the rest of your squad, and even a few of the Hellions enter the room. Along with your squad, Dust, Rockslide, and Mercury enter. Having all these people crowd into the infirmary makes the room feel much smaller than it felt before. Match looks around, and then looks towards you. “We just wanted to check up on you, an’, y’know, thank you for winning us the Exercise, even if it meant, well, blindin’ me.”

You give a lopsided grin, “Sorry, Torch. Didn’t realize how bad it’d be for you. I’d trade you the temporary blindness for this headache though.” Match laughs it off, and you can tell he seems much less upset now. “So, what was it like, y’know, after I passed out from exhaustion?” Pixie grins, “It was cool! With Ben blinded, it was really easy for the rest of us to finish off him and Tag. We were kinda worried about you, though. You’re sure you’re okay, Siris?” You nod, tapping your temple. “Just a headache, but I’m used to those, y’know? Beast says I’ll keep getting those while I’m still getting used to my powers. On the bright side, I’m making progress with that.” There’s a collective groan, although you can see Preview smirking, and Pixie isn’t even trying to hide how hilarious she finds your puns.

You chat with them some more, before you hear a voice in your head, a voice you recognize as belonging to Emma Frost. “Siris, as soon as you’re feeling better, you ought to join us in Headmaster Summers’ office. Please do hurry up.” Your head is feeling a bit better, so you get up and let everyone else know you need to get going. When you get to the office, you see Rahne sitting in one chair, Josh in another, and then Wolverine, Cyclops, and Emma Frost standing up. You can’t help but feel a pit in your stomach. For a few seconds, there’s complete silence, before Cyclops speaks up. “Erickson, we just want to verify some things. Miss Frost says she saw some... things, in your brain when she was checking up on you.”

“Did you see Miss Sinclair having... relations, with Josh Foley?”

You pause, putting on your best obtuse face. “Sorry, I... uh... think a lot of things. I have a very wild imagination. I... don’t really know what exactly it is you’re talking about.” Wolverine gives you a strange look, and you don’t dare look at Rahne or Josh. Cyclops reaches up, rubbing his temples. You clear your throat, “Um, I don’t... I mean, I’d appreciate it if you... y’know, asked before looking inside my brain, y’know? It’s kinda...” Cyclops nods as you trail off. “Yes, what Miss Frost did was... not what she should have done. I will discuss that with her at a later date. Thank you for your cooperation, Siris. You’re a big help.” With that, Wolverine leads both you and Josh out of the office. Just as you’re about to leave with Josh, Wolverine sticks his hand out, and grabs your shoulder.

“You were lyin’, kid.” You don’t answer, but Wolverine nods, “It’s fine. Worse things have happened, an’ if you hadn’t said anything, Rahne was probably going to come clean herself. It’s better this way. She cares for you kids, teachin’ you... it does her good.” He shrugs, “I s’pose it’s a good thing you’re willin’ to lie. An’ do it well, too. Otherwise I’d be in trouble too. Don’t feel bad about lyin’ there, if Rahne got kicked out, who knows where she’d go. She doesn’t exactly have that much of a life outside o’ Xavier’s. You're a good kid, if y’want, sometime when I have some free time, I could give you some private tutorin’.” With that, Wolverine goes off on his own, leaving you in the deserted hallway with your thoughts. You have some free time, and it’ll be a while before Rahne will be out of the meeting...

You decide to spend a bit of time just relaxing, spending some time in your room to get your bearings. After you finish with that, and you feel much, much better, you decide to spend some time training and studying with Beast. You have a better handle on your powers than you did before, but you’re still getting the headaches, and you’re still barely able to shoot one beam without almost collapsing in pain.

You head down towards the Professor’s laboratory, and enter after a short knock. Beast grins as he sees you enter the room. “Oh, Mister Erickson! It’s truly wonderful to meet you. I heard what you did in the exercise! What an incredible idea. Many other students would just focus only on shooting their lasers, but you had much better ideas. Now, let us begin with your practice.”

You’re from there, right? I’ve never actually been.” When you nod, she grins even wider, “That’s so cool! I think that means you’re the only person from there. You’ll have to be our guide!” Pixie grabs you, holding you close to her as she slowly flies both of you down to the ground. The two of you are quickly joined by the rest of your squad. Match grins, holding up some keys, “I found a way to get us to the city!” He leads the squad towards the garage, and heads towards a car. “So, uh... who here knows how to drive?” You shake your head, you’re a New Yorker, and a poor one at that. You have no idea how. Luckly, DJ, for, you imagine, the first time, says something. “Yo, I know how.”

Everyone piles into the car, and you’re off on a not-exactly allowed field trip. DJ seems to know at least the idea of where he’s driving, so for now, you don’t have to worry about that.

You grin. You know of a bar in Mutant Town that doesn’t card. It was a pretty popular spot before you left, although you never really spent much time there. You decide not to let the rest of your team know where you’re guiding them as you give DJ directions, so they’re thoroughly surprised as they enter Mutant Town. The timing is lucky too, so they see plenty of open mutants out and about as they drive through the district. You direct DJ to where you remembered the bar being and sure enough, it’s there. Filled with mutants who are clearly not of age to drink.

You grin, and find your squad a table after ordering beers for everyone. You don’t exactly know that much about alcohol, so you just order whatever beer you remember Wolverine drinking. Megan looks around in wonderment, “Wow, Siris, this place is so cool!” You return the smile, and as drinks come, you and the squad get drinking, as well as start to branch out, talking amongst each other, and some of the other patrons of the bar.

You decide to spend your time hanging out with Pixie, probably at least a little bit due to her insistence. Although you’re not the biggest fan of the beer, Pixie seems to really enjoy it, drinking can after can of itm, until she is pretty drunk. The rest of the squad are all off hanging out with some other people, or each other. You could swear you saw DJ leave with a few girls a little while ago. “So, I was born in Wales, in some small mining town you’ve never heard of,” Her accent becomes much more pronounced as she talks, probably due to all the alcohol she’s had. “I always really liked the X-Men growing up, because, well. Mining Town, what else’m I gonna do? I remember being so scared when I first came here. How can you deal with it? You’re always laughin’ an’ smilin’ an’ makin’ stupid puns.

You sigh, and take her outside the bar. The outside of the bar really hammers home how rough the area you’re in is. You hold your arms out, and shrug. “Megan, look around you. What do you see?” Megan looks around, taking in the sights. “Um... buildings, people, cars... um. There’s a bum with four eyes and a guy with wings vomiting over there.” You nod, sounds about right for Mutant Town. “This is where I grew up. I lived in an apartment with a total of four rooms. It was me, my mom, my dad, and my two older brothers. Each and every one of them was a mutant. People here, we struggle to make ends meet, and some people don’t end up keeping their heads above the water. All that pain, that misery, we learn to let that go, or it breaks us. That’s why I make jokes, and puns. I grew up around mutants. I grew up around people born who looked horrifying to the average person, and they were some of the nicest people I’ve ever met. All us mutants, we need to learn to live with this shit the world throws at us, or we might as well live in the sewers and let the word think of us as freaks.” You give her a smile, “A school full of mutants, run by the X-Men, sure that’s weird, but it’s nothing I haven’t seen before.”

Megan grins, and wraps her arms around you. “Thanks, Siris. You really know how to brighten up my day.”
