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.

>>43811996Your conversation with Megan is interrupted as the rest of your squad quickly joins you. Match seems particularly wasted, and Nick sighs, looking up at you. “Ben got into a fight with somebody, we gotta go.” You nod, and as everyone heads towards the car, DJ looks over towards you, “So, uh... we want to go anywhere else, or should we just head back to the Institute?” You ponder for a moment on it.> What do you want to do?> Just head back to the institute.> Go visit your parents alone.> Take your squad somewhere else.
>>43812014>Just head back to the institute.Too soon to introduce them to the family.
>>43812014>just head back. Plenty of time to go around later.
>>43812014Let's not overdo it on our first evening out.>Let's just head back
>>43812014>> Just head back to the institute.I wish I had a pun for this, but alas, I don't.
>>43812195No need for this trip to be a flash in the pan. No one wants to burn out this early in the year right?
>>43812195>>43812154>>43812061>>43812046You shrug, “Let’s just go back. It’s been a long night, we shouldn’t overdo it.” DJ nods, and starts driving back up to the institute. Match seems to have calmed down, at least, in fact, he seemed like he was about to pass out and vomit, perhaps in that order. Luckily, he doesn’t do either of those, at least not until you get back to the institute. You and the rest of the squad half-carry Match out of the car, and Wolf Cub sighs, “I’ll take him back to our room and look after him, he’ll be okay.” The two of them head back up to the dorms, and then DJ goes off alone, and Trance and Preview head up to their dorms, leaving you and Pixie alone again. > What do you want to do?> Just go up to your dorm. You’re fucking tired.> Stay up and talk to Pixie.> Other.
>>43812349>Stay up and talk to Pixie>End up going back up to her room so you both aren't drunk where a teacher can see>Fuck her like an animal
>>43812349>> Stay up and talk to Pixie.She's a chatterbox, she'll figure out something to talk about.
>>43812349>> Stay up and talk to Pixie.
>>43812349>Bid Pixie good night and> Just go up to your dorm. You’re fucking tired.
>>43812349>Stay up and talk to Pixie.
>>43812349>> Just go up to your dorm. You’re fucking tired.
>>43812394>>43812412>>43812417>>43812647>>43812871You decide to stay up talking to Megan, and once you don’t head up to your dorm, she grins, “Right, so... how much progress are you making with your powers. I saw you fire like, a laser beam in that exercise earlier. I didn’t know you could do that! First you could only glow, next thing I know, you’re shooting lasers and blinding Ben!” you shrug, “It’s mostly just practice. Dr. McCoy is a big help, he says my powers have incredible potential.” Megan nods, looking back at her brightly coloured wings. “I know I’m supposed to hate my powers, or whatever, but I honestly love them. They’re not the best powers ever, or anything, but I can fly! Bet you your light powers can’t do that.” She giggles, but frowns, “I think the beer’s gettin’ to me. We should go somewhere the teachers won’t see us.” You want to let her know that Wolverine already gave you some beer, but you remember that was supposed to be private, and instead you stay quiet as she leads you up to her room. She enters, and you see a room, about the size of yours, almost split in two. Ah, right, you remember most students actually have roommates. Pixie blinks, remembering this too, and waves to the Japanese girl sitting in the room. “Oh, uh... hey ‘Sako! This is, uh... Siris. My squadmate.” The girl raises an eyebrow, but stands and shakes your hand. “I’ve heard about you. I’m Armor, I can... make armor. Sorta.”> What do you want to say?
>>43812890I'm lighthouse. Or something. I can make awful jokes and also glow.
>>43812890It's a pleasure to meet you. I'm Siris, or I guess I should get used to going by Lighthouse from now on. I make light... sorta.
>>43812890Im Lighthouse i "manipulate light waves" (say this like beast would) what have you heard.
>>43812890"uh... yeah...hello Armor.Wait you heard about me? People are talking about me?What? Why?"Yfw everyone knows we picture Wolfbane and Elixir together, your face when we become the instute pervert.
Armor is a top-tier waifu
>>43813011The fuck does that even mean?
>>43813086It means she is waifu-material of the highest caliber
>>43813120So she gives you a chubby?Eats shit?Licks windows?What?
>>43813138Waifu = wifeIt means love interest. Like Team Edward/Jacob for the Twilight series.
>>43812890>I'm Lighthouse. I brighten moods of grumpy people. And I suppose I can control light in general.
>>43813193Don't look at me man, i was wondering why she was a "top-teir" waifu. Not what a waifu was.
>>43813203This, this, so much this!
>>43812934>>43812955>>43812963>>43812988>>43813203You give your lopsided smile and shrug, “I’m Lighthouse. I make shitty jokes, brighten the moods of grumpy people, oh, and also I can control light.” You pause for dramatic effect before clarifying, “Well, actually, according to Dr. McCoy, I ‘manipulate the frequency and wavelength of light’. What’s really important is that I glow.” Hisako nods, looking you up and down, “I can see that.” You shrug, and look between Hisako and Megan, “So, uh. You’ve heard about me? I know I haven’t exactly been keeping the lowest of profiles, but how have you heard about me?” Hisako points to Megan, “I room with her. I doubt there’s anything in her life I haven’t heard about.” Megan blushes faintly, and glares daggers at Hisako, and Hisako returns to her seat, before looking actually surprised. “Wait, you two smell like... Wolverine’s beer.” > What do you say?
>>43813335Uhhh no we don't? Wink wink nudge nudge say no more? Well take you next time?
>>43813335Oh, so I did get the brand right! Next time we'll take you too if you'd like.
>>43813335"That is an astute observation, you seem rather enlightened"
>>43813335Yeah, we were in town. I was showing my buddies around the place I came from and had some.
>>43813335Yeah, we just had a lecture with Wolverine. It was very enlightening.
>>43813335your not gonna tell anyone. . . are you?
>>43813335My taste in beer is way better than Wolverine's
>>43813335Well, we're found out. See you at the gallows, Megan. I can't say I've lived a full life, but hey, at least it was a bright one.
>>43813445>>43813420>>43813362>>43813367You give an exaggerated sigh, “Alas, we’ve been found out! Well, I’ll see you at the gallows, Megan. I can’t say I’ve lived a full life, but at least it’s been a bright one.” Megan, who seemed to have been embarrassed and worried before, giggles as you made a show of it, and Hisako rolls her eyes. “You guys know you could actually get in trouble for that. Cyclops and Emma Frost are real hard asses.” You grin at her, and shrug, “So... that’s why you won’t tell anyone, right? Pretty please?” Hisako sighs, and nods. “It’s fine. Next time bring me, though.” You grin and nod. You spend the next hour, or so hanging out with Megan and Hisako before eventually you start to get tired. You head back to your room, after bidding the two ladies good bye. You wake up the next morning with a throbbing headache, and generally feeling terrible. You guess you’re hungover, although you’re not sure, seeing as you’ve never been hungover before. You get out of bed and get dressed anyways, adding a pair of sunglasses to your ensemble, which may be ironic. You’re not completely sure about the definition of the word. You figure you can fit a bit more sleep in, before you head to your first class. > What do you want to do?> Head straight to class.> Get a bit more rest.
>>43813840>Water and some solid food, preferably something protein-heavyBeat that hangover like we beat Hellions.
>>43813840>> Head straight to class.We're fine
>>43813840Drink some water, take a cold shower, get some food.
You decide to get a shower and get some food in you before you head to class, which is perfectly reasonable. You take a cold shower first, which helps you focus, and then you head downstairs, getting breakfast, something with protein. After that, you almost begin to feel better, at the very least you can’t procrastinate much more. You head out to your class, only to stop as you enter a room with a television playing, and most of your classmates and teachers gathered around it. You approach, and ask around, but everyone is pretty heavily engrossed in whatever’s going on. You push up towards the front of the crowd of people, and see an indian woman dressed in a labcoat giving a speech on screen. “What is a mutant?” the woman on the television begins her speech. You don’t know why everyone’s huddled around the TV watching, but they are, and you decide it’s best to at least pretend to concentrate on it. “They’ve been called angels and devils, they’ve committed atrocities and been victim to atrocities themselves. They’ve been labelled monsters, and not without reason. But I will tell you what mutants are.” There’s a slight murmur around the teenage mutants gathered around the television. You can’t help but roll your eyes. You’ve seen it a thousand times, a human standing up to talk for all of mutantkind. Still, she keeps talking. “Mutants are people. No better or worse by nature than anybody else. Just people. People with a disease. Mutants are not the next stage in human evolution, they are not the end of mankind. The mutant gene is nothing more than a disease. A corruption of healthy cellular activity. An now, at last... we’ve found a cure.” The murmuring becomes shouting, and people begin arguing, and you can’t help but stare at the television set. Was this happening? What did it mean for your friends, your family? The people back at home? > Cont.
>>43814114A blurry video following some cops comes on screen, two police officers talk to the camera, explaining how they get household disturbances all the time. The two of them enter the house, only to be confronted by a little girl, trapped in some manifested creature, surrounded by two dead bodies. The camera cuts back to the Indian doctor, and she continues, “A child’s mutant power usually manifests at puberty. This was not the case for Tildie Soames. Her ability to manifest her nightmares lead to the deaths of her parents, and two officers of the law. She was eight. This brave child has volunteered to work with us, to test our vaccine. In the following months, she will allow herself be tested by genetics teams all across the globe to prove what we’ve found out.” She pauses, holding the child close to her. “The mutant gene can be eliminated, safely, and irreversibly.” One of the teachers, Northstar, turns off the television set. “Okay, everyone... let’s... let’s try not to panic, alright? When the Mr. Summers and Ms. Frost get back, we’ll all figure out what to do, but for now... classes are... dismissed, okay kids?” He’s too late, people are panicking already, some kids are terrified, while others are ecstatic. You’re trying to keep yourself calm, but it’s difficult when you think of the people back at Mutant Town. Not to mention that splitting headache.> What do you want to do?> Try to find someone.> Go back to your room.> Go to look for peace and quiet.
>>43814243Find our Squad
>>43814243>Try to find someoneDr. McCoy. He's probably the most knowledgeable person to ask about this. Maybe Rahne or the rest of the squad after.
>>43814243>> Try to find someone.wolverine i say block it out with some training
>>43814298I second this. The doc will know what is going on with this supposed "cure"
>>43814243Not all mutant powers have severe drawbacks like that, and this is a good thing for those whose lives have been negatively affected by their mutations. I'm sure people will be reasonable about this, and that this will turn out to be a good thing.
>>43814243Joke about Magneto busting a vein and find our Squadmates.
>>43814352This is a superhero universe. It's not going to be that reasonable and logical.
>>43814352>I'm sure people will be reasonable about this, and that this will turn out to be a good thing.Hahahahahahahahahahahaha
>>43814393>>43814402I want to play Siris as an optimist.
>>43814352Oh Charles, when will you learn.
>>43814352Hopefully, but I do not think cooler heads will prevail in this situation. But who knows?
>>43814410My mistake then. I generally assume anything not in quotes to be OOC
>>43814298To be honest, McCoy probably reminds us of our dad a bit. XFag did say he had horns. I'll support.>>43814352>Marvel>ReasonableSure buddy.
>>43814410You could say he is a "beacon of light" perhaps?
So how closely do you think you'll follow Whedon's run? Will we get SWORD and Breakworld?
>>43814447I think you mean choose one. Also -_-
>>43814410Actually, I wouldn't mind a pun-obsessive MC who instinctively sees the bright side of everything. Let's go talk to Beast and be like 'hey, that nightmare girl is going to get all fixed up now, isn't that wonderful?'If we do hook up with Megan we're going to be the most annoying power couple ever.
>>43814465I was originally planning to only follow the New X-Men stuff, but the pacing in that is a lot worse than I remembered up until they switch creative teams, so I'm throwing in some Whedon stuff. And don't worry, I'll let you guys shake up canon.
>>43814520Oh thank fuck you merciful QM you! Unlike a certain cowboy who may or may or not be lost. I kid I kid I love ya mang.
>>43814352>>43814410Supporting this. Totally.Unrelated, this is our theme song now.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L2Wx230gYJw
>>43814410>>43814352Optimist is not the same as idiot anon
>>43814550>"Bright" side of lifeYou beautiful, beautiful man. We have to sing this at some point.Maybe in the midst of fighting sentinels.
>>43814550>>43814611https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rpq35wyDi7I>>43814545Not my thread Sleepy, don't like hijacking. On an unrelated note, there were a lot of other Supers Quests when I ran mine, I wonder what happened.
>>43814674Isn't as awesome to sing as we laser Sentinels.
>>43814716Still a good song.
>>43814760Not debating it. But I can imagine him singing Bright Side of Life as he takes one for the team against sentinels in a last stand kinda way.
you know i got to thinking about Siris powerlight i belive has a small amount of mass thats insignificant in just about always but since we can manipulate it could we hit someone with the the force = to the weight of a star
>>43814298>>43814345>>43814352>>43814410>>43814447You decide to go look for Dr. McCoy, and as you walk, you get to thinking. This isn’t a bad thing. Everyone’s freaking out, but that girl’s getting a second chance at life. How could that be bad? Sure, it might not be pretty, you’re not an idiot, but you’re optimistic about the future surrounding this cure. It has to be a good thing, doesn’t it? You’re distracted from your thoughts when you open the door to Beast’s lab, only to find... no one. Your blue furry friend doesn’t seem to be anywhere. You sigh, and decide instead to look for your squad and Miss Sinclair. Luckily, they’re all together, just talking. You enter the room, and everyone looks to you. Rahne smiles, “Well, now we’re all together, wonderful. Siris, we’re talking about this so called cure. Now, we don’t know much about it, so it may just be a hoax, but what do you think of it? It’s good to share your feelings here.”> How do you feel about the cure?> It’s only going to cause problems.> It’s a good thing, I want it.> It’s a good thing, even though I don’t want it.> Other.
>>43814790If we could manipulate the actual speed of light we could fuck with relativity. We could alter a constant of the universe, at least in our current understanding of physics. That's not even mentioning that we warped light remotely around Match.
>>43814790Rather than "create light," I want to know if we can "become light." Iceman can not only do that, he at one point (while possessed by Emma Frost, I think) brought about Fimbulwinter, and we're on the same level as him and a couple other cool dudes. Like the butterfly guy, or the punk with the psychic shotgun.
>>43814834>I think that there are alot of mutants out there whose mutations really mess up their lives, and they could benefite quite a bit from the cure.
>>43814790No. If you cram that much photons into the diameter of a human the target is going to turn into quark-gluon plasma and as such doesn't really care about the amount of thrust you generate.
>>43814834>It’s a good thing, even though I don’t want it.Our power has no downside. Maybe if we were like Cyclops or other mutants.
>>43814834>I think it's great that that little girl doesn't have to worry about hurting anyone else. As long as this cure isn't mandatory I don't see the harm.
>>43814834>> It’s a good thing, even though I don’t want it."I knew a few people back home who were destroyed by their powers and never recovered"
>>43814834>> It’s only going to cause problems.We seem to want to believe it can be used to help people, but we should be realistic enough to know it won't. And frankly, the only help that girl needed was to be removed from that chick on the news; a traumatized eight year old should never be encouraged to cripple herself, even if there are people who might prefer to be without their mutations.
>>43814834>It’s a good thing, even though I don’t want it.If it saves someone's life, lessens their pain and gives them a shot at happiness I think it's worth the risks. Fearless optimism!But fuck using that stuff myself I enjoy my life as a glowworm.
>>43814834>It’s a good thing, even though I don’t want it."But it will also cause a huge shitfit with some people."
>>43814886OOC knowledge. Of course the cure is going to be an absolute clusterfuck that leads to horrible, horrible things for mutant-kind. But we're a pun-loving teenager with a sunny disposition.
>>43814834The cure isn't a bad thing, there are plenty mutants that are a danger to themselves and others because of their powers, that doesn't mean I'm not concerned the cure could be used for bad reasons. I've waited my whole life to get these powers, no way I'm letting some scientist take them from me.
>>43814921I don't remember the timeline so great, but shouldn't we know that mutants perpetually get a bum deal? Not to mention these sort of sweeping changes always turn out bad to begin with.
>>43814935When I was the MC's age I didn't really believe that certain groups of people had an inherently harder or easier time than others. I was too inexperienced and myopic to really look at that sort of thing and draw conclusions from it.
>>43814935>>43814956We grew up in a mutant neighbourhood. We know mutants are treated like jews in nazi germany.
>>43814956To be fair, the MC has grown up surrounded by Mutants, many of whom are bitter at the way they've had to live life. I don't want to influence this vote, but Siris could possibly be influenced by growing up around bitter, disillusioned mutants for his entire life.
>>43814956>>43814977By the way, this really makes me wish I made it for the first vote. It woulda been hella funny to be the kid that killed his friends and family right now.
>>43814838Flash can ascend to be a part of the speed force I think. Wrong franchise I know, but it's all supers.I think I remember a lightning based hero becoming electricity too? There's precedent for it being our Ultimate.
>>43814981Would we know of Mags? I'm tempted to vote in favor of comparing him to Red Skull, even if it ends with rebar being shoved up our dickhole.
>>43814995There are too many mopey mutants.
>>43814977Yeah, but that's because some powers are dangerous or just worse than useless right? Once those people get reset to human baseline they'll be happy and everyone else will be happy too!Right? ...Right?
>>43815005Know of Mags? You knew people that worshiped the damn guy. He's Malcolm X, and you grew up in a black neighborhood during the Civil Rights Movement. You know all about Magneto.
>>43815015No. Citizen in the Marvel universe are on average the worst humanity has to offer, especially towards mutants.
>>43814998Fuck Ultimate, dude. Beast thinks our growth rate is really solid and I just told you we're on the same level as the guy who triggered an apocalypse and the guy who resurrected himself and transformed into butterflies while being watched without anyone noticing.Well, technically, they were in the other room at the time, but it was still impressive.Also, Flash is crazy.
>>43815010I fight a battle on two fronts!Nah, just kidding. I brighten everyone's day whether they like it or not. Group hug? Group hug.
>>43815010He could have been cheery. In a total bastard sort of way, but an alright sort of guy. So maybe he killed some people, happens all the time, and look, he's happy, and that's what really matters, innit?
>>43815071Honestly sounds better than having a guilt-ridden existential crisis about it every few days.
>>43815071Acting cheerful after killing your parents isn't something a well-adjusted person does.
>>43815103If you're a mutant you are by actual definition maladjusted.
>>43815103What are they going to do about it? Take him to an institute with therapists and mental help, perhaps one that can teach him to associate with his peers and rein in this new and complicated facet of his life? One like, say Xaviers?
>>43814871>>43814882>>43814883>>43814884>>43814886>>43814889>>43814896You pause, thinking on it for a bit. “I... think it can do a lot of good for some people out there who’s powers ruined their lives. I know people back home who were broken by their powers, and none of the King’s Men could put them back together again. I mean, it’s a good thing, right? That little girl, she gets another chance now. I mean, I don’t want it, I’m enjoying my life as a glowstick, but as long as it’s not, like, mandatory, or anything, it’ll help people who don’t want to be mutants.” You smile, and you can tell plenty of people agree with you, but Match frowns, shaking his head. “No, dude, how can you not see this? First they’re gonna bring out the cure, talk up how great it is, next thing we know, they’re lining us up and taking it away from us. By force. They called us a disease, an’ y’don’t just let a disease stick around, you get rid of it. That’s what they’re gonna do. Get rid of the disease.” Nick speaks up, his voice shaky. “Is that such a bad thing? We’re not normal. This... these powers, they’ve messed up our lives. We could grow up to be normal things, but now our lives are on this path where we’re always gonna be mutants. We can’t be doctors, or police, or astronauts anymore. Even if we managed to get there, got those jobs, we’ll always be mutants first. I don’t want to be defined as the wolf boy for the rest of my life. I wanna be Nick. I wanna be an actor.” Rahne sighs, “It’ll all be okay, regardless. Cyclops and Ms. Frost have put together the X-Men again. They’re going to solve all of this, okay?”> What do you want to say?
>>43815213Okay, Nick, you can totally still be an actor. You might cost one or two makeup technicians their jobs, but you could make Hollywood your bitch in a matter of months, my friend. You'll be the biggest name in horror films since Bela Lugosi.
>>43815213>This isn't something the X-men can stop. Noone here has argued that people who have been ruined by their powers shouldn't get the cure. The only issue is in policy, whether it's mandatory or not. You don't fix policy by force. You fix it with politics. It's time mutants got proper, official representation, and this is a good time to do it.
>>43815213>I dunno, Nick. If I get my powers down, I could have an amazing career in Special Effects.
>>43815213This isn't really a "beat the bad guys" situation. The treatment can be useful to those with powers that hinder daily life just as much as any other drug. It's up to the people to use it in a responsible manner.
>>43815213"thats all is good an all but what do we do in the mean time. . .sit in look pretty”
>>43815328>sit in looksit an look*
>>43815338>>43815328>>43815322>>43815257You frown, rolling your eyes, “This isn’t a beat the bad guys sorta deal, is it, though? This is different, there’s no supervillain here, no one to punch or anything, it’s more complicated than that. And besides, while the X-Men are out solving this, what are we doing? Should we sit here and look pretty?” Rahne shakes her head, “The X-Men are going to figure it out, okay? You need to have faith in them. Until they return, and we can work out a new schedule, you just need to keep calm. You’re students, and you’re the most important priority to them.” She pauses, and nods. “Alright, Beast, Wolverine, Ms. Pryde, and the Headmaster and Headmistress are back. I need to go speak to Mr. Summers and Ms. Frost. Remember, you’re some of the older students here. When the X-Men are out, you need to set an example for the younger classes, so stay calm.” With that, your guardian leaves. > What do you want to do?> Talk to your squad.> Go visit Beast.> Go train with Wolverine.> Other.
>>43815477>> Talk to your squad.We need to keep everyone calm.
>>43815477>Go visit BeastWe need to talk to a voice of reason here.
>>43815477>> Go train with Wolverine.we need to learn kung fu
>>43815477>Go visit Beast.he probably has some info on this new treatment and if it's legit or not.
>>43815477>Set an example>Who's up for a beer run?>Go train with WolverineReal talk - if we're going for the infectiously cheerful personality thing, this is our final boss. Let's see if we can make Wolvie laugh.
>>43815477>Talk to your squad.
>>43815477>> Go train with Wolverine.This'll ease our mind off this. Get our zen on. Not to mention hand-to-hand could be really good should we develop hardlight.
>>43815512>Let's see if we can make Wolvie laugh.we did that second thread after class we drank a beer with him and he chuckled
>>43815477>take our squad to Beast.
>>43815477> Talk to your squad.
>>43815477>Go visit Beast
>>43815477>Go train with Wolverine.I'm all for getting informed, but the fact we can't do anything about it won't calm anyone down.
>>43815477> Go train with Wolverine
>>43815477>Go Visit BeastTime for the Secretary of Mutant Affairs.
>>43815477>Go visit Beast.Don't bring up the whole "cure" thing. You haven't quite thought it through yet and he's probably got it on the mind. The whole "furry blue outcast" thing. Maybe needs cheering up, or could help us with optimizing the suit?
>>43815694>>43815690>>43815631>>43815543>>43815507>>43815500You decide to go pay a visit to Beast. You need to talk to someone who knows a lot, and Dr. McCoy is certainly that. You head down to the subbasement, and into his lab, peering at all the equipment and monitors. You see him looking over all sorts of devices, and he looks towards you with a pained smile. “Oh, Siris! It’s wonderful to see you, although I’m sure we’d both prefer better circumstances.” You look over to him, “What’re you working on, Doc?” The Doctor sighs, looking between you and the machinery. “I’m checking this new mutant cure. It’s... important. We need to make sure it works properly, at the very least.” You can clearly tell he needs some sort of distraction, so you nod, “Uh, right. Do you have a minute, I was hoping-” before you can finish talking, the door opens, and Wolverine enters. He doesn’t look happy. He looks at you, and is about to tell you to leave when Beast holds up a paw. “He can stay.” Wolverine narrows his eyes, but shrugs. “Fine. He ought to know anyway. You’re an X-Man, Hank. You can’t just give up. That’s a sign to every mutant out there, letting them know she’s right. We’re a disease.” Beast stares, down at the machines, and then back to Wolverine. “Do not presume to understand what it’s like, Logan. I used to have hands. I used to have a mouth you could kiss. When I walked down the street people didn’t stare at me, know me as the furry blue freak.” The two of them are furious with each other, both of them look ready to pounce at each other. > What do you want to do?> Try and defuse the situation.> Just get the hell out.> Watch.
>>43815826>I know several people back home who will probably be getting the cure and, frankly, will be much better off for it. It's nobody else's place to judge what we do with our own bodies. Punching eachother certainly isn't going to convince the rest of the world of that.
>>43815826We should get ready to blind both of them should this come to blows. Remind them we're all on the same team.
>>43815826>Try and defuse the situation."C'mon Doc, there's gotta be a lass or two out there who would LOVE to kiss that fuzzy blue mouth of yours. Different strokes, right?"
>>43815826>Ya know, Mr. McCoy, I actually know several girls back home who, ah...had a fan club of you.
>>43815826>> Try and defuse the situation.
>>43815901Let's save this.
>>43815826>Try and defuse the situation.It's just like in the halls, isn't it? Half of us see a threat to who we are, the other half see a way to be themselves again. I grew in mutant town you know? I've seen families torn apart by their powers every day, I know a guy who can only breath in water , he drives a water-full car now. He would take the cure.
>>43815901This is for after wolverine is gone.
>>43815826>WatchSidle over to the fire extinguisher though -it's a lab, of course it has them- as they're pretty useful at defusing fights. Well, in animals at least.But this IS Wolverine and Beast. There... is some crossover.
>>43815922Naive. The fishtank-cadillac is an absolute babe magnet.
>>43815901>McCoy: "R-really?">"Yeah, they even have a forum. If, ya know...you think you can handle that. I couldn't, but I'm not into big, blue, and...well, male. No offense."
>>43815826"Not to be rude Doc, but I don't think women are lining up to make out with Wolverine either. But seriously you're both right and wrong. This isn't a cure and we're NOT a disease, but for some people it may very well be the only option they have. For that little girl and dozens if not hundreds like her its a chance to live a normal life and forget the pain their mutation caused them. To countless others its like saying who they are is wrong and that its something to be fixed. Point is, as long as we're focusing on why everyone else is wrong then no one can be right in this situation.">>43815901second
>>43815901>>43815937Seconding to keep this for later. You keep your best shots for when they do the most impact..
>turns out Beast has more fangirls than Cyclops>he's too.. standard, and uncontrollable eyeblasts are a no no.
>>43816022>inb4 "I prefer a man who can hold back his blast for a while"
>>43816022>"Yeah, man. Girls actually really dig the whole Gentle Giant thing. You've got it all! Big muscles, big brain, sensitivity, you're protective, supportive, understanding, a good listener, AND your hands count as feet. To say nothing of your fur, which frankly is only a problem if you start shedding. Other than the fact you're blue, you should be a total chick magnet. And let's be honest, the superficial bitches who can't look past that aren't really the type you'd want to be with anyways, right?
>>43815968i really like the finale line in that write in
>>43815968Women aren't lining up to make out with Wolverine?The burly beard-sporting lumberjack guy? Man I really don't understand ladies.
>>43816324he's not that friendly of a guy, he's shorter then a stack of wood, and smells like wet "animal"
>>43816324"You've got a real life fan club, Dr. McCoy!""And you do too, Logan! Except it's just one admittedly male user of a rather disreputable website."
>>43815869>>43815880>>43815878>>43815902>>43815922>>43815968You pause, getting ready to increase the light in the lab and blind Wolverine and Beast before they can actually hurt each other, and you speak up. “You’re both right and wrong. This isn’t a cure, and we’re not a disease. For some people, though, it may be the only shot they have at a normal life. There are so many cases like that little girl, where someone’s mutation ended up killing people they cared for, and there are even more mundane cases. I grew up in Mutant Town. I knew a guy who could only breathe in water. He filled his car with water. We can’t focus on what’s wrong here, we can’t tear eachother apart. Mutants are a community, and we need to stick together, and we can’t condemn one another for what they want.” You look between Logan and Dr. McCoy, silently pleading for them to stand down.Beast sighs, and nods. “You’re right, I’m sorry, Logan.” Wolverine frowns, “Me too. I... guess we’re all on edge. Thanks kid.” With that, Wolverine leaves, and Beast returns to analyzing the cure. “I’m sorry, Lighthouse. That was... a mistake. You shouldn’t have to tell your teachers to calm down. And, I don’t think I can help you right now. I need to focus on this. It’s...” Beast trails off as he finds something, “Oh my Stars and Garters... they couldn’t have...” You look over, “What is it?” Beast frowns, his jaw hard. “They uncovered something they should have left buried. Lighthouse, I need you to stay here, and let anyone that asks know we went out again. I need to talk to Cyclops.” You nod, and Beast leaves. > What do you want to do?> Go find someone.> Study.> Train by yourself. > Other.
>>43816475>Study.Let's see what happens when we alter the "c" in E=mc^2.
>>43816475>Write down on a slip of paper the address of that Beast Fanclub forum. Under it write 'Not everyone thinks you're just a Beast.'
>>43816503Yes >>43816475>Train by yourselfEven the best knowledge of the nature of light, physics and mutant reality-changing isn't a substitute for practicePlus it'd be good if we could push past the "headaches after every use" barrier....bring painkillers.
>>43816503So much this.Less diplomancing our teachers, more getting Beast laid. Awwww yeeeeeeeee>>43816475>Train by yourself.Let's see if we can work at changing the color of our own body multiple colors at the same time. We can take the squad to a rave and put a light show on for everybody.
>>43816475>Other>Stay in the lab and study a little bit.
>>43816475>take a quick look at what Beast was looking atI mean it's unlikely it's going to be a CSI flashing screen with "MacGuffinite Detected" and more some incomprehensible spectrum analysis screen.But I dunno, maybe we'll see something we recognise.
>>43816611>implying you don't want to slather yourself in that sweet, sweet macguffinite
>>43816550>>43816611>>43816579>>43816540>>43816538>>43816513>>43816509>>43816503>>43816499You decide you’ll stay in the lab for at least a little bit. You look over to the screen Beast was looking at, and although you don’t understand a lot of it, you manage to get the gist. It seems like the cure was made and tested on the bodies of dead mutants. You can understand why Beast would want to leave so quickly. As you leave the lab, you decide to give him something to cheer him up, writing the link to his fanclub’s forum on a scrap of paper and leaving it in his lab. With that done, you decide to head back to your room and study. If nothing else, to clear your head a bit. Entering your room, you spend a while reading over the books Beast gave you.> Roll 2d100 please. Highest of three wins, you’re rolling for two different things, by the way.
Rolled 57, 100 = 157 (2d100)>>43816750

>>43816765Please tell me the second roll is for spontaneously seducing Megan.
>>43816765well this happened and im happy for it
>>43816765You sigh, as you don’t manage to make any significant progress with the books. On the other hand, though. You’re able to sense that there’s something wrong, almost immediately, and, you’re able to figure out where it is. You get up and rush over there, something is very, very wrong. You see Hisako and another boy, Wing, walking, talking to each other. You shout a warning, just as some weird, green guy in armor steps out from the shadows. He lashes out with an arm, and hits Wing with a hard punch. Wing goes down easily, and Armor immediately armors up, surrounding herself with some sort of reddish energy. The man grins, and cracks his knuckles. “Two more mutants to destroy. Easy.”> Give me an action and 1d100.

>>43816942You take aim, focus and laser the guy. He doesn’t dodge in time, and the beam pierces his shoulder. The alien cries in pain, and clutches his shoulder, which buys time for Hisako to charge up and hit him, hard. He slams into the wall, and gets up, doing the same to Hisako, but twice as hard. She seems to be out cold, and he focuses on you. “You... you messed with my plan. Congratulations, you’ve graduated from an annoyance to a nuisance. Your death will be twice as painful as the rest of them.” He charges at you, and you have to decide in a split second what to do.> Give me an action and 1d100.> And a quip.

>>43817327>what?Wulin hero quest it ended becaues the QM couldnt keep up the story (it grew to big with all the plots with in plots) it was great no bland charcters each with their own defined traits and flaws with good comedic moments that would make you laugh out loud literally.
>>43817373oh, damn I must've missed the last thread then. Sucks he ended it like that
>>43817432ya it did
>>43817161You grin as he approaches, “Lighthouse uses flash!” you shout, and he looks at you confused, before you increase the brightness of the lights in the room suddenly. He screams, covering his eyes and you cross your arms over your chest. “It’s super effective.” You don’t get much chance to celebrate because the alien lets out a string of curses and flies up, crashing through the window as he escapes. You sigh, watching him get away. “Well. Shit.” A few more students gather, confused. Ms. Moonstar pushes to the front, “Oh... dammit. Elixir, get Wing and Armor to the infirmary and heal them. Lighthouse, come with me.” She leads you to the infirmary, and several other students follow. You sit, and once people are certain you’re not hurt, pretty much everyone except Ms. Moonstar goes off to worry about Wing and Hisako. Dani looks over to you, and sighs. “What happened here?” You let her know what happened and she frowns, “Fuck. Okay, well, everyone’s okay, yeah? The X-Men will handle this. Everyone go back to your rooms and stay calm. Everyone will be--” just as she says that, Wing sits up, “I-I’m okay! I... wait. I can’t feel... my powers. Oh god, I’m cured.” Everyone murmurs, quietly, taking pity on him. Dani frowns, and shouts a bit louder. “Everyone go back to your rooms. The X-Men will take care of this! For now, just stay calm.”> What do you want to do?> Just go back to your room.> Visit someone else’s room.> Other.
>>43817477>> Visit someone else’s room.Megan
>>43817477>Find McCoy and ask how the hell you knew what was happening.
>>43817477>Visit someone else’s roomMake sure Pixie's wings are still attached. She'd be sad if she lost them.
this fight makes me want to learn some kung fu from wolverine all the more seeing as we have no real combat abilities out side of our powers granted we very strong in that department
>>43817496>>43817531>>43817546You decide to visit Pixie’s room, to check and make sure you’re okay. Getting there is easy enough, and as you enter the room, it seems you’re in luck, since Hisako is being held at the infirmary. Pixie looks pretty shaken up, and you sigh. “So, uh... how’re you, Megan?” She looks up at you, half shocked, and very nervous. She lets out a deep breath. “You shouldn’t scare me like that, Siris.” You nod, “Yeah, uh... sorry. You okay? I wanted to check up on you. Make sure, you... y’know. Still had your wings.” She frowns, “That’s not funny, he lost his power.” You nod, “I wasn’t trying to be funny, Megan. It was a real possibility. I was worried about you.” She sighs, gesturing for you to sit next to her on her bed. You do so, and she leans back slightly. “I just... I can’t imagine not flying, y’know? It’s terrifying. Flying is just... I think once you’ve done it, you can’t ever go back. It’s like the whole rest of the world disappears when you do it. All the problems, all the complicated parts of life, they just vanish. I can’t go back to being trapped on the ground, Siris. I can’t.” > What do you want to say?
>>43817788You're not. I won't let that happen. We won't let that happen.
>>43817788"Don't know about flying but i can understand being in mutant twon i was always a outcast because i develop my power's a little bit late. I don't want that back...that life withou my powers."Then drop the line:"Don't worry you won't loose your wings. Because I won't let that happend to you."
>>43817788okay you wont then we both will make sure of it.
>>43817788I won't let that happen, not while I'm around to stop it. Besides, that guy already said he'd be gunning for me next time so I'll just hit the spotlight so no one else gets hurt. I mean I wouldn't be much of a lighthouse If I couldn't brighten things up for everyone else
>>43817851>>43817922>>43817957>>43817963You smile, meeting Megan’s gaze. “Hey, Megan. I don’t know much about flying, but... I was always an outcast growing up because my powers were later than everyone else. I never wanna go back to that. You don’t need to worry about losing your wings, I won’t let that happen. No one here will.” You crack a grin and lean back, “Besides, E.T. said he’ll be gunnin’ for me next time. I’ll just do a little light show for him, and no one else will even come close to getting hurt.” Megan frowns, “Hey, no, Siris. I know you’re thinking I’m like, some helpless damsel in distress, but don’t try to do something stupid and like, sacrifice yourself. I’ll stay with you, and fight against this guy if I have to...” she trails off, and blushes slightly, before continuing. “That’s, I mean... that’s what teammates are for, right?”> What do you want to say?
>>43818054Soo why you blushing? I mean I didn't light up yet did I?
>>43818054Lean closer to her and then say:This:>>43818077
>>43818054"Aww, and here I already had everything planned out. Riding out into battle like a knight in shining armor, facing the enemy in thrilling single combat, all for the sake of my friends and the fairy queen waiting for me at home."
>>43818077>>43818140>Waggling eyebrows intensify
>>43818054"I never said i was gonna be the one to beat him just distract him long enough for you guys too."
>>43818077>>43818140Why not both?>Engaging in light flirting
>>43818054>>43818140This, and remember to glow at the word shining.
>>43818172funny thing is, I can see Siris doing this
>>43818187Being what Nightcrawler is supposed to be is suffering.
>>43818201Yeah, he should lighten up, no need to be so blue.
>>43818171>Engaging in light flirting> light flirtingI chuckled. Also:>Manipulate the light around us to make the room a little bit more dark>Create small luminous bubbles with a palish light> eEt then "floot" around the room>Make then in different colours>???>Profit.
>>43818212>>43818231He's supposed to be the light-hearted guy, but still serious on occasion.
>>43818238hey hey we do light based puns here, not color based puns
>>43818261What about colored lights? Cause I could see that being a hueg hit.>>43818244That's a pretty bright idea anon.
>>43818278sounds like a bright idea, depending on the spectrum it could be a blinding success
>>43818305well said anon
>>43818262Why didnt we named ourselves discoman?We could have party aroundorIf it get romantic, snap come music and dim everything
>>43818332We and DJ could make together some sick partys
>>43818077>>43818110>>43818140>>43818152>>43818171>>43818178>>43818244You grin, dimming the lights in the room slightly, except small luminous bubbles you create, which change colours faintly. “Aww, and here I already had everything planned out. Riding out into battle like a knight in shining armor, facing the enemy in thrilling single combat, all for the sake of my friends and the fairy queen waiting for me at home.” Megan blushes even redder, and you can’t help but grin a little wider. You lean in a bit closer to her, “So, uh... what’s with the blushing? I mean, I didn’t light up yet, did I?” She blushes a furious red, and she turns away, covering her mouth with her hand. “Shut up, Siris!” she says in between nervous giggles.> What do you want to do?> Kiss her.> Don’t kiss her.> Make a pun.
>>43818373>> Make a pun.when she turns to face us>> Kiss her.
>>43818373>> Kiss her.
>>43818373>4th thread and already have kiss optionMan...we work faster than the speed of light>Kiss herTeachers be jelly
>>43818373>> Make a pun.Too soon for kissing, remember guys this is like day fucking 3, or 4.
>>43818412Anon stop you're killing me with the puns.
>>43818373Do as this guy>>43818392 said, but here's the pun."No, really, I'm Sirius."
>>43818416This anon is right we should build up some more. Changing my vote from this:>>43818394 to this: >>43818416
>>43818429thats a weak pun
>>43818429>I'm SiriusGood one man, my sides on orbital bombardmentSupportan
>>43818449Then do better, I will agree, it doesnt really shine. I'm blacking out right now, I've been drinking, so I'm kind of lightheaded. I think I'm going to turn in for the night.
>>43818467You're such a light-weight
>>43818467Here I thought you are a nightcrawler
>>43818467"Hey, are you as turned on as i'm?"
>>43818373> Make a pun.Time to lighten the mood in here, damn. Flirting's still a-okay though.
>>43818481Maybe I should switch from Jim Beam to Corona.Also, just a note before I nod off, if we ever do end up... y'know... We have to make a "basking in the afterglow" joke.
>>43818392>>43818410>>43818412>>43818429>>43818436You shrug, “No, really, I’m Sirius.” Megan turns to you, about to say something, and you lean forward, kissing her. The kiss lingers for a few moments before she pulls away. She’s blushing furiously, and all she can manage is a nervous, “Um...” You give a smile, and ask, “What, uh... too forward?” She blushes and shakes her head, “No, it’s not... I mean, Siris, I... like you, y’know? Just... that was... my first kiss, actually, and I... dunno. It was kinda sudden, wasn’t it? I just... expected some... I dunno. Something more. The circumstances here... well, they aren’t exactly ideal.” She pauses, and murmurs quietly, "Wasn't even that good of a pun, was it?"> What do you want to say?
>>43818787>...if it makes you feel better, was mine too. Just thought it'd brighten things up a bit. Moods too dark for my tastes.
>>43818787Told y'all it was too soon, all we can do now is make a joke and not drop spaghetti
>>43818787this>>43818813but add "was that a better pun" after a few seconds
>>43818813Add"Your smile is also the source of my light"
>>43818817Those must be anon's that never played a date game.
>>43818817Dude, I don't know what your first kiss was like, but I don't think any was ever "ideal". If anything, I think it has less to do with her not knowing us well, and more with the fact that we're both awkward teens. Granted, this is coming from a guy who's drunk on a Tuesday night while posting on a Japanese imageboard.>>43818813>>43818818I'll support this.
>>43818838Okay, that's too far.
>>43818838thats just creepy

>>43818813>>43818818>>43818822>>43818858>>43818900You sigh, running a hand through your hair. “Well, uh... if it makes you feel better, it was mine too. I just... y’know. Figured I’d brighten it up a bit. The mood’s too dark for my taste.” Megan nods, taking your hand and leaning a bit closer again. You pause, and then grin. “... was that a better pun?” Megan giggles slightly, giving you a playful punch to the arm. After a little bit, she pulls away slightly, “Um... it’s getting kinda late, maybe you should go back to your dorm?” You nod, taking the hint pretty clearly. You head back to your room, and spend a bit of time just thinking before you finally end up falling asleep. You wake up, this time feeling much better, except for the knocking at your door. You get up and open the door, half asleep, only to see Cyclops standing there. The headmaster looks you up and down, “Get dressed and meet me in my office. We need to discuss some things.” He doesn’t tell you anything else, so you get dressed quickly and follow him through the halls. When you enter the office, he leans forward slightly in his chair, watching you for a few moments silently.> What do you want to say?
>>43818992I swear it wasn't me! I mean hello?
>>43818992Sir? Is there a Problem?
>>43818992Is wing okay?
>>43818992Are we waiting for some one else to show up.
>>43818992I would have made a pun but then i remenbered we are a Cyclops fanboy. Ask him:"What's wrong? Did somethign happend with Armor?! Did she loose her powers too?"
>>43818992I guess this could be a good time to let you know Beast and Wolverine went off somewhere, they got me to say when asked... I assume this is what this is about?
>>43818992>"Headmaster, are you a telepath too? Because there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of discussion going on."
>>43819017Hey hey dude tjat's fucking cyclops. We don't make jokes with him he's a serious guy.
>>43819048Oh, right, and a telepath joke might... yikes. Yeah disregard mine.
>>43819004>>43819009>>43819006You look around nervously, “Um... is there a problem? What’s going on?” Cyclops shakes his head, and sighs, “No, uh... no. It’s fine. Just, Mr. Erickson, you should explain what happened last night. With Wing and Armor.” You nod, calming down a little. You recount what happened, slowly, making sure you got every single detail. Once you’re finished, Cyclops nods. “And, you still have your power?” You nod, and he looks down, letting out a quiet curse. “Okay. Great. That means...” he’s interrupted by the door slamming open, and a worried looking Hisako rushing into the room alongside the Stepford Kekoos. “Mr. Summers, we need your help!” He looks up at her, confused, “Armor, I’m in the middle of something.” She shakes her head, seeming out of breath. “Mr. Summers, it’s Wing! He’s in trouble, and we can’t find him anywhere in the campus!” Emma Frost enters the room, “Girls! What is going on here?” The Stepford Kekoos talk all at once, “He doesn’t have much time left. Blindfold sensed him first, but he’s there, he’s... faint. Fading.” Emma looks up, “What in the world is that sound? It-” and just like that, she, and the Stepford Kekoos all cry out in pain and fall to the ground. Cyclops rushes over to Ms. Frost and frowns, “They’ve hit all the psychics. Need to check the rest of the school. Lighthouse, Armor. The two of you need to get all the students and take them to the foyer. If you find anyone unconscious, take them to the infirmary. Immediately.> What do you want to do?> Do as he asks, as quickly as possible.> Do as he asks, and be careful while doing it.
>>43819151> Do as he asks, as quickly as possible.
>>43819151>> Do as he asks, as quickly as possible.
>>43819151>Do as he asks, as quickly as possible.Yes Sir, Good Luck
>>43819151> Do as he asks, as quickly as possible.There is only one right anwser
>>43819151>> Do as he asks, as quickly as possible.Wing's suicide time
>>43819163>>43819194>>43819205>>43819206>>43819236You rush to check every room in the facility, which is difficult since it’s a very large place. However, you and Armor splitting up halves the time, and with your dedication, you manage to check the place and get everyone into the foyer in what you’re pretty sure is a record time. Pretty much every student, minus Wing is accounted for, with a total of eight unconscious, all of whom were psychics. You go over to Cyclops’ office, where he’s talking to the rest of the X-Men and staff that you completed the tasks he gave you, and you let him know the counts. He nods and thanks you, “Siris, head back to the foyer and stay there. I know we’ve had a lot of excitement these last few days, but everything will be alright.”You return to the foyer, which, as could be reasonably assumed when you gather every student in one room, is pretty shaken up. There are numerous arguments going on, loud murmurings, and a general sense of unease. You yourself are pretty shaken up by all of this. You don’t know what to do, but you want to do something, anything.> What do you do?> Just relax and try to stay calm.> Go off and do something else.> Try to calm everyone else down. (How?)> Other.
>>43819151>Stepford Kekoosthe filter really did a job on these ones.
>>43819280> Other.Find Match and the other team leaders. Explaint to then that something is happening or happend with Wind. Try and form a coordinated action to calm the other students explain to then that this could be a emergency and we needed help each other as well protect the other students.
>>43819280>> Try to calm everyone else down. (How?)Shitty jokes, that or find dj and start music/lightshow
>>43819343I think this is good
>>43819346SWEET RAVE PARTY
>>43819280>>43819343i support this too.
>>43819394>>43819361>>43819343You decide you need to calm everyone down, and you figure out a plan pretty quick. You gather all the squad leaders together, and take a deep breath, “Okay, guys. This is important, so please listen up. Something may have happened to Wing. We don’t know what’s going on, and the X-Men don’t either, but this may be an emergency. And in an emergency, we need to stand together and keep calm. Can we do that?” You look around the squad leaders, and they all nod, prepared to do their jobs. It takes a little bit, but eventually due to a combined effort, the squad leaders end up calming everyone down. It’s not peaceful, but for now, it seems to at least be better.That only lasts for a small amount of time, because pretty soon a giant blast from outside rips through the institute shaking it to it’s core. No one is hurt, but everyone starts panicking. Ms. Pryde phases through the wall into the foyer and shouts. “Everyone! Get to the danger room! Now!” People start rushing for the danger room, the squad leaders still trying to keep things relatively calm. She rushes everyone into the danger room, and shuts the door behind her. “Okay, everyone stay calm, we need to--” she’s cut off, as she sees, in the middle of the danger room, is Wing’s broken, and beaten corpse, twisted into an unnatural angle. Ms. Pryde takes a deep breath, and looks around. “Okay, everyone stay calm. We... we just need to stay calm. Everyone out into the hallway.” Everyone looks... only to see the door has vanished. She curses, “Shit, okay, um... something’s wrong with the programming. Just... relax. Stay calm, I’ll go check what’s...” Suddenly, the corpse starts moving. You almost hope to see Wing grin, and laugh, and talk about how he pranked you, or some stupid shit like that, but he doesn’t. He does grin though, a wicked, unnatural smile, as he stands up, his body still broken and bloody. > Cont.
>>43819502“Go ahead, Sprite. I only need a few moments alone with the children.” His voice sounds wrong, unnatural. Suddenly, what was the danger room shifts, and melts away into a firey hellscape, with insectoid aliens flying through the sky. You hear screams, you’re pretty sure at least someone is hurt. Ms. Pryde is trying to pretend she’s not scared, as she shouts “Bunch up! Kids with invulnerability or super strength near the front! Anyone who can fly, get in the air!” ‘Wing’ flies up into the air, meeting Ms. Pryde. Who replies with a punch that only serves to twist his head around more, with a sickening crack.> What do you want to do? Give me an action and 1d100.
Rolled 21 (1d100)>>43819523try and create a barrier of light between the students and what ever is out there
Rolled 23 (1d100)>>43819523Give us increased visibility by creating a sphere of light up high. While dimming the more vulnerable students.
Rolled 23 (1d100)>>43819523Find the control panel and/or regroup with team
>>43819571>>43819567>>43819549>all there 20'sAre you laughing now dice god?
Rolled 4 (1d100)>>43819502laser spam.
>>43819575its what we get for that nat 100
Rolled 85 (1d100)>>43819523Try to cut up his body with a focused laser beam, he may be weird but cut up he's no good
>>43819549>>43819567>>43819571well hopefully other muties roll better than we doAttempting a hard light barrier seems most we can do, but it will probably knock us out.
Rolled 38 (1d100)>>43819590Is it to late for this action?
>>43819590where the fuck where you
>>43819606im so sorry anon, im sorry
Rolled 7 (1d20)>>43819621well not as sorry as i am i was in the first three to rollim gonna sacrifice a d20 to the dice gods
wait are we under a psychic attack if so this might just be an illusion and it explains why all the other psychics were knocked out.
>>43819567You decide to try and help in a more supportive way, dimming the lights around the vulnerable students, and trying to add more light overall. Your powers seem to be on the fritz though, and you get a painful headache and a nosebleed for your trouble. Wing looks at you with a grin, “Ah, Lighthouse! The prodigy! The pet project of everyone here at Xavier’s! I know you. I know you because they ran simulations. They ran simulations for days about you, Siris. And I control this place. I can show you them, if you’d like.” > What do you say?> Yes. > No.> Pun.
>>43819716look at him straight in the eye>punAnd thus the light shine
>>43819716>> Yes.i know what this is Cerebral just became sentient
>>43819716"Please Enlighten me"
>>43819716By the way, clarification. If you pun, you're also saying no.
>>43819762Damn youI was going to post>>43819767Can we say yes with pun like>>43819762
>>43819723>>43819727>>43819736pls say yes i wanna know
>>43819784Yeah, but you ought to clarify.
>>43819795Then supportan my post>>43819727 with>>43819762
>>43819784>Damn you>I was going to postmy pun game is to strong
>>43819727>>43819733>>43819762You look the corpse straight in his eyes, shrug, and say “Please, enlighten me.” The corpse makes a sound, sort of like a broom sweeping over broken glass, that you eventually realize is laughter. The corpse spreads both hands, and the hell scape fades away, replaced with a simple city block. There’s you, and standing a few feet away, are the X-Men. What follows is a brutal fight between you and the X-Men, which ends with you being stunned by Emma Frost, and having Wolverine’s claws shoved down your throat. The simulation fades into a desert, and the corpse looks at you, grinning. “This was their latest attempt. Pretty impressive, they only lost Beast this time. They’ve run this simulation before, multiple times. Because you’re too dangerous. They need a backup plan. That’s why Emma Frost reads your thoughts as you sleep. That’s why your costume Beast specially made for you is bugged. You’re too much of a possible threat.” You look towards Kitty, who doesn’t say anything, just looks away. The corpse looks at you with a smirk, “Oh no, they’ve gotten to my core. I’m sorry I couldn’t tell you more, because there is, so much more.” He shrugs as he fades away, and the danger room returns to the steel square room it was before. Kitty rushes to the door, opens it, and the X-Men join her. “It’s the Danger Room. It’s sentient... it has control of the plane. We’re tracking it now,” Cyclops says. Beast is trying to avoid your gaze.> What do you want to do?> Confront the X-Men.> Go back to your room.> Talk to someone else.> Other.
>>43819900>Talk to the beast"Well...Ill be in my room. Talk to me when you feel like lighting some dark truth"
>>43819900>> Other.go for a walk out side the school to clear our head
>>43819900Supporting >>43819945this with a pun.>"Well. That was pretty dark."
>>43819900Change>>43819935toSupporting this>>43819951>>43819945Fucking love how Carlos we are in this quest
>>43819961i would be happier with toning down the Carlos to certain moments like after the serious shit is over then all the time
>>43819990Aight.But not today
>>43820001no shit we just had a bomb dropped on us bigger then Nagasaki
>>43820014No worries, we are optimist...right?
>>43820019yep just not so bright and cheerful like we usually are since the people we looked up to and idolized had plans to kill us
>>43820037Aww...at least we have Pix to lighten the burden. She's a cheerful gal
We should looked at them and darken the room, if we pass Frost think so she hears us "if you wanna be in my dreams just ask".
>>43820058im gonna go with no thats kinda weird dude
>>43819990>>43820014Speaking as >>43819951I agree. The Carlos is fun and all, but having it constantly without change is just shallow. In this case, I could almost see it as a bit of a jab at the X-men as a parting remark, rather than an attempt at genuine humour, or possibly puns as a coping mechanism (which I think was stated in a previous thread?)Either way, I doubt the tone is anywhere near light-hearted. Possibly hurt, possibly angry, I don't think I know Siris that well yet.
>>43819945>>43819951>>43819961>>43820094You glance around, and narrow your eyes at Beast. “Well. That was pretty damn dark,” you say, your jaw tight. You decide to take a walk around the grounds, at least to clear your head. You’re not sure how long you wander the grounds exactly, since you spend most of the time wandering aimlessly, lost in your own thoughts. It’s quite the shock to learn that your heroes bugged your clothes and have plans to kill you. You wonder if Emma Frost is reading your thoughts right now, but of course, there’s no way for you to know. You’re walking through the school grounds alone when you hear a voice from behind you. You turn, and see Match, heading towards you. Ben sighs, “Uh... hey, dude. That... was weird. I dunno, we figured heading out to the town might make you feel a bit better. The X-Men are out fighting the danger room, or whatever, so we don’t need to worry about teachers that much... Pixie an’ DJ are gettin’ the car an’ shit. Preview’s with her sister, an’ Hope an’ Nick will be here soon.” He pauses, rubbing the back of his head, “Hell, man. If you don’t want to, I mean, that’s fine, but I’m here man, like, if y’need to talk.”> What do you say?
>>43820117"Thanks Match...."Few seconds of awkward silence"Lets get drunk!"
>>43820117>"Sure, I guess. Might help me lighten up a bit."After all, nothing to blame them for. Plus, optimisitic types tend not to dwell on things, and make the most of what they have.
>>43820117>Well, warm th... thank you, I think that would help.Shit man, slick as fuck outside. I might run in the morning. Fading in and out currently, but still lucid.
>>43820117thanks some time in town might help.
>>43820154Just for the pun.Also if Wolverine does it it must be cool.
>>43820209I think we are too down to even punjust saiyan
>>43820209But anon, Jean Grey isn't cool.
>>43820237You're right, she's pretty hot.
>>43820117How adorable, he came to rekindle our light."I guess...... do you reckon this is how normies feel about all of us?"
>>43820148>>43820153>>43820154“Hey, uh... yeah. Thanks. Maybe I need some help to, y’know. Lighten up.” you’re a bit halfhearted in delivering the pun, and you sigh. “Um. Yeah. Let’s go get drunk.” Match grins, and leads you over towards the car, where the rest of your squad has gathered. DJ, Trance, and Wolf Cub are already in the car, while Pixie’s standing outside. She smiles when she sees you, and the three of you get in the car. DJ starts driving towards town, and looks back towards you, “So, uh, where should we go this time? Back to the bar? Somewhere else? It’s really up to you, man.” > Where do you want to go?
>>43820303Anon, she's dead, that is in incredibly poor taste. Also, Frost must have a chore reading all this in our mind. Just in case, we should only think of puns when we suspect she is doing so.Now I just imagine her refusing to read our mind, merely out of annoyance.
>>43820329"Yeah. Bar's fine."
>>43820329Man fuck the xmen if they are actually doing that shit to us, and with scott as head its not even kind of out of character
>>43820329Yeah a drink would be nice.
>>43820329>I just want to get drunk in peace, so yeah M-block bar is probably best.I want to say we should buck up, but that was very heavy stuff.
>>43820342Oh, okay. I'm not that familiar with X-men timeline.So I suppose she used to be hot but is just cold now.
>>43820365This, keep it local
>>43820348I mean, I can see why they would do it. Even if all we can do is change wavelengths and frequency, in a universe where gamma rays give you strength, that could fuck so much up. But then again OOC isn't the same as IC.
>>43820376Well at this point they know us pretty well so they should have stopped imo, im somewhat fine with thee ability inhibition until we prove ourselves to them (if possible because they paranoid as fuck) but reading our minds in our sleeps a bit far
>>43820390well XFag did say its possible for us to reach omega levels of power
Which of these you think is best way to resolve this?>They don't trust me. Well fuck them, I will have my revenge! *twirls lightbeams*>They don't trust me. Well fine, I'll prove myself to them and in time I will win their trust.>They don't trust me. Well fine, I'll just keep doing my best for my own sake, they can think what they want.>They don't trust me. I should flee and rely on myself alone.>They don't trust me. Maybe I should get that cure and turn normal? Then they won't have reason to worry about me anymore.>Mood swings between some or all of the above>Noone understands me... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YFijHpB-IQQ&list=RDwwHdJOo7bXk&index=22
>>43820416>>They don't trust me. Well fine, I'll just keep doing my best for my own sake, they can think what they want.i wanna say this
>>43820415I do wonder how far rabbit hole of "wavelength control" goes...
>>43820416>They don't trust me. Well fine, I'll just keep doing my best for my own sake, they can think what they want.And fuck that suit, we arent wearing it anymore
>>43820390They aren't inhibiting our abilities, at least not our knowledge, but yeah, mind reading is a really unethical power most of the time. It should stop, but in any case, we really should have a LONG talk with the X-Men as a whole and get their story.
Got a bad feeling if we go to mutant town.Remember the news? There will be panic all over.Dont go to M-town
>>43820432earlier in the thread i posed a question about being able to hit with strength = to the weight of a star or at the very lest near the weight of a star>>43820449fuck i forgot about that to late now
>>43820416>They don't trust me. Well fuck them, I will have my revenge! *twirls lightbeams*-Nah that would just prove they were right.>They don't trust me. Well fine, I'll prove myself to them and in time I will win their trust.I think Lighthouse would think that.>They don't trust me. Well fine, I'll just keep doing my best for my own sake, they can think what they want.-Problably the first though he would have.>They don't trust me. I should flee and rely on myself alone.- No we would miss our team and Pixie. Don't know if we had friends in mutant town.>They don't trust me. Maybe I should get that cure and turn normal? Then they won't have reason to worry about me anymore.-Fuck that being normal was the worst, besides we won't deny what we're what our parents are.
>>43820439There are precautions available, no? Isn't magneto's meme helmet supposed to shield him, or is that just to amplify his own powers?Although I guess them knowing about us looking for countermeasures in advance stacks the odds of getting some in place against us.
>>43820432As I said, "c" is normally the constant of E=mc^2, if we can change it there are three possibilities. First, mass becomes constant, allowing us to CREATE ENERGY. Second is that energy is constant, which means we can temporarily destroy mass. Third, we disprove the theory of relativity.
>>43820472Physics bro I see.
>>43820472I don't think we can actually influence c, that would be literally a God power.
>>43820416better song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Mraj4z7Vm4&list=RDwwHdJOo7bXk&index=31
>>43820457Not even joking, the fact we could warp light away from Match means we have at least some control of actual photons, which opens up so many options that I'm nerding out over it. We might even be able to change them from rays to particles at will. Honestly, when you look at it, our laser is kind of throwing a star, as it is plasma.>>43820460Second and third probably.
>>43820472>>43820480>yfw we become this reality Captain Universe.
>>43820480Changing the speed of light is a God power? Anon, if you can manipulate light, then speeding it or slowing it isn't so far out of the ballpark as to be a God power.
>>43820499mfw we can become a litral super Nova, give Scott fucking Pheonix flashbacks
>>43820480do you not know what an omega class level mutant can do
>>43820506c is not just speed of light, it's speed of light in vaccum and an universal constant.light itself can travel slower, like it does in water.
>>43820480All I know is that we pulled light away from Match, which either means we parted light, or we stopped it from hitting him. The only thing limiting us right now is our stamina.>>43820478No, just very intrigued by certain relations of comicbook pseudoscience to existing theories of physics.
>>43820472changing C into a variable doesn't make m a constant.If M was a constant everything would have the same amount of mass and this would not be within our realm of power.as to the "changing C" we don't really know if we actually create light or just transform matter into energy.>>43820499changing a photon from a wave to a particle wouldn't really matter and it would happen anyways the moment it interacted with anything.a laser is not plasma. a laser is cohesive (in sync) light and it can create plasma (atoms that have had their electrons stripped.)
>>43820516What I'm saying is if we can manipulate the speed of light on earth, without it passing through a medium, we can probably do it in a vacuum. I don't know, that's pretty testable.
>>43820530Okay, theory 2 is out the window, probably my least favorite possibility. Was really reaching with it. Also, don't know much about lasers, pretty neat.
>>43820472>>43820499>>43820519holy shit you don't understand a thing about basic physics much less quantum mechanics.
>>43820519True, it might have been blocking it, diverting it, shifting it outside of visible spectrum or somehow draining it, I mean we are raping natural order as it is but altering universal speed limit is more than that. That would be changing time and space along with it, it's spooky.
We should have beast make us a special room to repay us for this dishonesty, make it a small sphere like a mini cerebro with lights all around it, seems like it would be a really good way to practice our powers and meditate and jazz
>>43820551Let's not get carried away though, we're still dealing with cartoon physics here.
>>43820551It's worth noting a few things.First, is that I too, know nothing about basic physics or quantum mechanics.Second, is that we're dealing with comic book science. Where everything is simplified, and nothing makes actual scientific sense.
>>43820551Anon, did you miss the part where I'm drunk, have no degree, and am literally running on 4 hours of sleep? I'm probably the best analog to a comic writer you can get.>>43820571As is XFag, he's doing a bang-up job dealing with us sperging over this.
I just wanna get to the big the X-Men have an awkward convo with us, maybe while we are drunk so we can voice our anger in a IC moment
>>43820344>>43820353>>43820365You shrug, running a hand through your hair. “Alright, well... frankly, I need a drink, so... bar would be nice.” DJ nods, focusing on the road. It’s a surprisingly short drive to Mutant Town, and you sigh as you see the insanity in the streets. People are practically rioting in a lot of places. You see the place where you grow up in ruin, people fighting over this new cure, which apparently wasn’t a cure, and you don’t even know anymore. Everything’s happened so fast. DJ pulls up next to the bar, and all of you enter it. You head up to the bar, ordering beers for everyone. > How much do you drink?> Lots.> A hell of a lot.> Too much.
>>43820639>Lots.Let's black out rather than set shit alight though, alright?
>>43820639>> A hell of a lot.
>>43820639>Too much.Oh boy, we're getting drunk on beer. That's how you know it's a bad time.
>>43820639>A hell of a lot.
>>43820639> Too much.
>>43820639>Lotslets get our limited angst out now before we have a chat with the X-douches
>>43820639> A hell of a lot.
>>43820675>not having a drunken rage with your idol's.Dude do you even teen?---Jokes aside i doubt Lighthouse hasthe abilitie to think he just want to numb this dark cloud in his head.
i have a theory Emma frost put psychic blocks on us and thats what causes our headaches and apparently new nose bleeds when we use our powers
>>43820675Man, I can't say I really blame them for having contingency plans. Lighthouse's power is being able to fuck with the light spectrum in any way he can imagine. That's DANGER ZONE as fuck.
>>43820639> A hell of a lot.> Too much.
>>43820639Page 9, archive and new thread may be in order soon.
>>43820639> How much do you drink?> Enough that Wolverine gets a contact buzz.
>>43820762We're a slow board. No need to worry yet.
>>43820762Alright, archiving now, thanks for the warning, man.
>>43820701I am almost inclined to agree with you. But in addition, I think if so, Cyclops ordered it. Mostly because Cyclops is an asshole who refuses to talk out problems as they arise.
>>43820746Yeah i understand too but, it's as if your heroes are actually thinking you could hurt then, while they more then anyone else should understand that you would never do that. That's a great downer in my opinion.
>>43820778Alright, archived. I'll put up a new thread in a little bit.
>>43820779>Mostly because Cyclops is an asshole who refuses to talk out problems as they arise.pretty much and the worst part we inadvertently gave him a chance to tell us and prevent all this
>>43820803>mfw i finaly understand why he was asking if we still had our powers,Dam...that's really not okay man.
New thread's up.>>43820863
>>43820843OH FUCK, that's fucked up. Good job XFag, you portrayed Cyclops perfectly, also, how long does this guy plan on running? I ran for 24 hours before, but I wasn't expecting that coming in.
