Banning characters because of sexuality? Can't wait to see the sequel where they are banned based on race or gender.

Theme Song:



Behold, my collection of ships. Some of these sailed. Some of these never had a chance. Others are serious, some cute, and some are something else.

The Big Three:
  • Guintro
    • Guinevere Stark and Pietro Maximoff
    • The OTP
    • RPed with @BlueSky44 in X-Men: Darkness Rising
    • Theme Song: Uptown Girl by Billy Joel
    • Guin and Pietro are an interesting pairing, to say the very least. Both of them have uncertain motivations driving their actions, as well as the tall shadow of an infamous father. They both adore 80's music and outdated tech, but they haven't had a lot of time in game to connect with each other on an emotional level. At first, it seemed like they may fizzle out, but their relationship is growing stronger with each and every post. I'm not usually one for shipping, but they're my RP OTP. Let's just hope neither of them die!
  • Luna
    • Runa Baldurdattir and Lance Banner
    • The Quiet Ship
    • RPed with @BlueSky44 in X-Men: Darkness Rising Test Collabs
    • Theme Song: Carry You by Ruelle + Fleurie
    • My favorite ships always happen by accident, where two characters just happen to be in the same place at the same time and form a connection. That's exactly what happened with Lance and Runa. Both of them are judged not by their own actions, but by that of a relative. In Lance's case, his father's - and in Runa's case, her uncle's. They're both relatively quiet individuals but when they're together, they create something beautiful. Hopefully we'll find a RP for the two of them to be in together soon...Otherwise, just going to have to wait until it's time for a certain Asgardian to appear in X-Men.
  • Jati:
    • Jack Hudson and Tatiana Korvo
    • The Sweetheart Ship
    • RPed with @Lady Amalthea in the Walking Dead
    • Theme Song: Everytime We Touch ~ Heavy Metal Cover (Video made by @Lady Amalthea)
    • Perhaps the most romantic ship, it's also one of the most difficult ones for me to write for. Slipping into the utter kindness and empathy of Jati, the two of them holding on fiercely no matter the odds, can be a bit of a challenge. They're pure and sweet, a definite contrast to the easy grittiness found in the apocalypse. Of course, with Tatiana missing and carrying their unborn child, things aren't looking too great for them.... <.>



The Skyrose Multiverse began with the apocalypse RP, Abandoned Hope. This RP, which I GMed with @BlueSky44, incorporated a lot of lore from various shows and books that we liked. At first, we thought that was the biggest connection it would have. It has now expanded into a fully blown universe, with multiple GM's running connected RP, and an established continuity throughout the timeline.

Washington D.C.: September 9th, 2020 - 8:30 PM



The Penthouse...

Only Glimpse approached Veil and while Requiem was ready to shoot her, her enhanced speed allowed Britain's daughter to dodge the bullet. The bullet embedded itself harmlessly in the wall, while Glimpse managed to scoop up Veil and dash over towards the ice slide and down Sapphire's glacial contraption. Since Havok had been carried down by Sapphire and Max already left, the entire Mutant Underground had left the area. The morality manipulating wonder would slowly regain consciousness.

Emma Frost woke up as well, sadly too late to do anything about the invaders. However, rather than looking angry and hostile, she seemed almost... pleased. "Requiem, Jinx, get someone in here to clean up this mess," Emma ordered, as Glimpse's control over Jinx ended once she and Veil had gone down the ice slide. "Anastasia, darling, come with me. Oh and you two, once you've gotten someone to handle the mess, please see if you can figure out what those miscreants were looking for. Anastasia needs medical attention."

The White Queen then moved towards the elevator, using her telekinesis to elevate her protΓ©gΓ© and allow Anastasia to float across the room to her. Once the elevator came, Emma took Anastasia to medical and started looking through the vials of blood until she found one labeled J. Howlett.

The Sidewalk...

Once down the ice slide, the Mutant Underground group will not be too far away from the car they took to get there. Someone must have called something in - probably the appearance of a massive ice slide and mutants going down it - as police sirens are coming closer rapidly. Even if they were to get into the car right now, it was going to be a bit of a high speed chase. They would also need to lose the cops and ensure that they didn't lead them back to the Mutant Underground Headquarters.

Of course, things are additionally complicated by the fact that both Havok and Veil are currently unconscious. If they could get Veil awake, at least she would be able to turn the group invisible and hide them from the cops.

The Attic...

Negasonic glared at Leighton for a moment. "Didn't you say that you couldn't hold onto the pillars very long, princess?" she snapped. "Besides, it wasn't like anyone here was actually getting a more permanent solution in place, so I dealt with it. You're welcome." Given that she was a snarky teenager staring down someone wearing what looked like designer clothes, she saw Leighton as entitled. It also didn't help that Negasonic rarely played nice with others, something that Colossus was constantly berating her on.

Without fail, his scolding came about a second or so later. "Negasonic!" he snapped. "Pick battles carefully - and remember, act with kindness." He still hadn't let go of his baby sister and by some stroke of luck, Magik had yet to stir. Vulcan however was beginning to show the signs of coming back to consciousness. Hopefully, the knot work on the ropes restraining him would hold.

"Whatever..." Negasonic muttered, rolling her eyes at him. "I'll go check our perimeter or something," she said, before noisily running down the staircase. If people glanced outside, they would see Negasonic emerge a few minutes later, muttering to herself and kicking at the ground as she walked.

Waverley would begin to hear a transmission coming through the airwaves: 10-80. Repeat, we have a 10-80 on Chestnut St. Requesting backup. Code 8. Once more, this is a 10-80 on Chestnut St. Now, she could use her powers to jam the signal and keep it from going through, but she would need to act fast. Another thing that she could try would be to send a message back to the officer, telling them to dismiss it, that it was just a demolition done by a construction company and it was already cleared.

Colossus looked at Moonwalker and gave him a nod. "Yes - please, after you," he said, motioning towards the stairs. Blink had already gone down the stairs after Callie. Sunshine rubbed her eyes with her sleeve again, sniffling a bit as she glanced around the room. She wanted to get justice for Erg. She wanted to kill as many Purifiers as it took, until somehow, he'd be brought back to life. Sure, she knew that it didn't work that way... but she didn't care.

"You mean take down the Purifiers," she corrected Leighton. They were the ones who had killed Erg - she had seen them with their Sentinel. The young blonde then went down the stairs as well, seeing as everyone else was going that way.

The First Floor...

Casper was incredibly relieved as James agreed to heal his brother, so much so that Casper gave him a kiss on the cheek. "My hero," he said with a grin. He was also very happy to hear that he wouldn't have to call his father and ask for money to pay for his brother's care. Every time he had to call up to his father in New York, Casper got a little bit closer to wanting to eat a bullet.

Blink had her arms crossed as she reached the first floor with Spark Plug. "So if it wasn't a coincidence, then the Hellfire Club is working with the Purifiers then?" she asked. "Is the Hellfire Club an anti-mutant hate group or something?" She hadn't ever heard of them before, but if they were some sort of rumored secret society, she could see them having the wealth and resources to supply the Purifiers with a sentinel. It also made sense for them to want to eliminate two of the biggest support groups for mutants in Washington D.C. - the Morlocks and the Mutant Underground.

Casper had pretty much shrugged off his brother's comments about feeling like a third wheel, more worried about what Blink had said. He knew about the Hellfire Club. They had been responsible for one of the biggest tragedies his father's friends had experienced - the Dark Phoenix. "The Hellfire Club isn't an anti-mutant hate group... They're rich and wealthy mutants who operate like the Illuminati, bent on taking over the world covertly..."

"Cassie, I know you don't want to but..."

"No, I am not going to call my dad to talk to him about this, Ben! Since when does he care anyways?!" Casper snapped at his friend, giving Ben so fierce a stare that if looks could kill, Ben would have died a second time.

"They nearly ended the world last time, right? They made Jean Grey go all nutso..."

"Well there's no danger of that - no Phoenix Force here for them to use!"

"Like the Phoenix Force is the only powerful thing in the world! And think, Cassie, isn't it a bit weird for them to be attacking mutants? They're mutants. You said so yourself."

Blink glanced at Jack, hoping that he would give some sort of translation as to what Casper was babbling on about. "Okay, slow down... If that's true, then none of this makes any sense. The Morlocks, we're nonviolent. We don't do confrontation of any kind - just sorta mind our own business. So if this Hellfire Club is teaming up with the Purifiers, then... why the hell would they want us gone?"

Sunshine then came out on the first floor, as did Colossus with Magik. "Stretch - is good to see you."

"Perhaps we should contend with the possibility that our blackmailer will not travel to these hallowed grounds at all," Walnut mused. "For all we know, we could have been summoned here with the assumption that the people of this household would dispose of us, if the blackmailer wished to cease the game for one reason or another." Of course, this struck her as unlikely. "Yet your discovery of the list with our names does strongly suggest that the blackmailer must be here... or at least, someone here serves their interests." She did not feel like she had gotten very far just from these conversations. She wanted to find more things along the lines of what Blush had uncovered, as they had more or less formed firm opinions on everyone here and groups had occurred naturally. She also knew whom she hated and wished to kill - Amaranthine, Swamp, Titian, and then the annoying woman Rave. The order of their deaths was negotiable.

Moving through the darkness, Walnut followed after Blush and emerged into the latest in a seemingly never ending series of rooms. There was still darkness here and Walnut very much wished that they could have some sort of light source, as she did not care for this endless night they were in. She then thought more on the question of why they had all been assembled here. "Well we have all been summoned here for our common connection of being blackmailed - but who summoned us? Did the blackmailer insist that we arrive - or was it someone in these walls who wished to bring down that soul?" There was then another question. "Perhaps as we move beyond these dark halls, we might find the intention of this gathering... At the very least, we know those who cannot be trusted already - namely the ones absent from our current company. Swamp, Amaranthine, and Titian."



Virginia Crypt


Location: Gretna Green - Church
Skills: Nakai, Pavati, Chemical Analysis, Biology, Deduction

Unfortunately, Virginia had little clue as to how to deal with this entire situation and make the Russian man's suggestion a reality. Nothing she could think of in terms of chemistry or biology aided her and her deductive prowess similarly fell short. This was definitely Mary's area of expertise, religious experiences in a Christian Church. Though she had not received an answer as to whether or not any sort of prayer would do, she imagined that the prayer would likely match their surroundings. A prayer to the Dark Mother would perhaps not have the desired effect. The Irish woman unleashed a powerful scream, stunning the creature more.

Elizaveta repeated what the Irish woman had already said to do - to drive the being back onto the altar. The birds were doing that efficiently from what Virginia could tell. Millicent got the creature on the altar before anyone else could really do anything and from what the French woman said, they needed Elizaveta to perform the prayer. There was nothing really here for Virginia to do specifically, but at least it seemed the battle was waning as she moved towards the altar as well. At the very least if the creature tried to escape, she could use her remaining axe to attempt to keep it from escaping. There was not much else that could be done. Hopefully Elizaveta would be able to deal with it and then they could attempt to figure out what exactly it was.



Maeve Brennan


Location: Gretna Green - Church
Skills: Riada, Deasmhumhnach

Maeve unleashed a banshee's scream, stunning the creature and allowing the rest of those there to get the creature over to the altar. Millicent, despite striking her as a rather weak and sad looking woman earlier, managed to accomplish that task almost entirely on her own. She had to wonder just how Millicent was able to be both people at once - perhaps this was just pure adrenaline, allowing her to find a spine and act as she had been unable to do with Rutherford. Colette similarly was doing rather well, coming up with a plan on how to deal with this thing. The Russian woman just needed to do the same sort of ritual as from before.

She had no idea what this thing was as she moved forward with the others to the altar. Hopefully it would be dispatched soon enough and then they could start asking questions, as asking questions in the middle of a fight wasn't really the way to go about things. The monster didn't really seem to be able to do much in the way of attacking on its own now, since so many people had combined their abilities in order to get at it - and once more, she was a bit shocked at Millicent's newfound strength. She just had to wait and see if the prayer ritual would do what needed to be done here, as she was essentially on the job of just having to wait, hopefully prevent the creature from escaping if it got free, maybe stun it again, and see if the Russian woman could deal with things.



John Watts


Location: Serval Industries - R&D Lab
Skills: N/A
For the first week of their forced vacation, Watts had spent some time with his son, Stephen. Stephen was a freshman studying forensic science at a university in the eastern United States, whereas his daughter was in secondary school in England. He had seen Leda relatively recently for Christmas, and while he would have loved to go see her in England as well, he enjoyed spending time with his son and clearing his head. He even took Stephen out to get cupcakes, feeling a compulsion to do so. His kids were the best parts of him and it had helped him to clear his head. Of course, that didn't mean that he didn't intend to do everything in his power to get Bobbi and Wesley fired - he would just have to wait for another epic failure of theirs.

He doubted that would take long.

For the next three weeks, he was working on the Andrew Problem. The little cupcake eater was dead, but he wanted to recover what he could from Andrew's files about his final moments. He had been in Gardner's office after all and there was still something suspicious about the CEO. Watts had banished everyone else from the R&D lab, sending them off to work in other lab spaces as he recovered and categorized every little piece of metal he found. All of it was traced back to the splicer - he couldn't find a single part of Andrew's suit. When it came to Andrew's computer, most of his files had been deleted. That was troubling to say the least. The computer log indicated that the deletion had happened after the explosion, so someone else must have gone into the lab to get rid of them.

Watts was willing to bet a few hundred dollars that he could blame Wesley and Bobbi for that too.

The videos he managed to recover only brought up more questions. They revealed to him a few key facts. The first was that Andrew had found schematics for a device in Gardner's office that would theoretically allow someone to switch bodies with another person. The second was that during the explosion, Andrew had shrunk down to a microscopic level - there was a chance that he had survived, his suit stuck and damaged beyond repair preventing him from returning to normal size.

He ran a hand through his hair, before he opened up his comm line and spoke quickly, but firmly. "Nightingale, you are needed in the R&D lab - now."



The Small Wet Country Across the Sea: August 9th, 12,511 - 4:20 PM

Myrus nodded slightly at Ahote, as his mentor more or less told him to be strong. He had to believe that they could prevent this - that they could save Valda and his family. He had already lost his parents and now his best friend. He didn't want to lose Valda or Luna - he didn't know if he could take that. The young prince took a deep breath, clenching his hands and they had a slight red-pink glow before it vanished. He had come a long way from where he had been months ago, struggling to control these abilities. "Hey, cut it out!" Myrus snapped, not liking the way Bruce was talking to Mona, as it wasn't very nice.

"... Please," he then added a bit timidly. "We're all just scared and we don't all know as much as you do about Ragnarok..." he continued, his voice scarcely a whisper now. He really hoped that Bruce didn't decide to throw a fireball at him or something - some of the gods in the myths of the Land of Long Nights were rather cruel. His ears were red and Myrus shuffled backwards slightly. It was a good thing he hadn't called Bruce a buttmunch as he had been considering.

"B-but like I said, can't we just protect Baldur and stop Ragnarok that way?" he asked again, since no one had said anything to that idea.
The Small Wet Country Across the Sea: November 5th, 12,508 - 10:20 PM

The Palace Barracks - the Castle...

Baby Dawn was crawling around the floor of the barracks, occasionally sending off little spurts of fire. The little thing seemed to have no idea that her mother had died and that she had killed the vampire Gypsy, just content and happy as could be. Watching from a safe distance, Apollodora kept one eye on Dawn and one eye on Amarantha. "Please, you do not need to complain to me about my mother," Apollodora scoffed, rolling her eyes. "I've never exactly seen eye to eye with the old bat."

"Whatever agenda you've got with the Biters, it'll have to wait. Now, I am pretty certain that in the Palace somewhere, there are some chains that are inescapable - and unbreakable. All we need to do is take advantage of all of this chaos, take the chains, and then go tie up Arya. If we leave her with Cuyler, then well maybe that'll be enough to get them back together, my brother and me will be born, and you can focus again on your sad, futile little mission to stop the Biters from invading and taking over the world."

The Palace Long Walk - the Castle...

As the trio run throughout the Palace, they will notice the death and destruction that occurred within its walls. Bloody footprints are all over the once clean floor, with numerous prized possessions overturn and shattered on the ground. There is no sign of Myrus, but the familiar faces of some servants, now dead, are among the deceased. In the Entrance Hall, there also are numerous burned corpses, belonging to vampiric invaders. No one comes to approach them yet.

Violet


Location: Outside the Old Port Witch Coven Home
Skills: Perception
Whereas Arya had always either pinned her hair back, braided it, or kept it orderly in some other manner, Violet's hair was a wild mess. Half of it was pinned up, the rest cascading down without any semblance of intention or control. She reached up and took off the hood of her black cloak, the buttons in the front were not properly fastened so Fleur would be able to see her emerald green tunic. Emerald green was the color worn by the ExtraOrdinary Apprentice, not the Wizard. The Akhu Amulet of Hotep-Ra was still around her neck and she still wore the belt of the ExtraOrdinary as well.

Was this the true self of Arya Rincewind - or was Violet simply an identity crafted through circumstance?

"Fleur La Mallificum," Violet whispered. There was a poignant pause. She had greeted so many people in alleys like this, stating their name and then informing them that they had failed the Castle. She killed them, helping to reduce the criminal rot that penetrated this country. At first, she had operated alone - but now she had her partner. Silver. "Whoever you think I am... that person is dead. I am Violet."

Her emerald eyes flickered around, seeing no shadows to indicate that they were being followed any further. Nera was intently watching them from the window, but Nera had only Appeared to Fleur so Violet could not see her. The ex-ExtraOrdinary Wizard then focused once more on Fleur, looking like a wary predator meeting their match in strength and intelligence. She had been following Fleur in order to learn more about her, to prepare to kill her since from what she heard, she was a force for evil.

"You've failed the Castle."

Antonije Magnisky


Location: Ramblings Room 847
Skills: Telepathy
Antonije continued to hold Sylvi close, stroking her hair to try to keep her calm. He could have gone into her head and meddled with her, in order to force her to be in a cool and collected state, but he didn't feel like doing that at the moment. He only wanted to manipulate her mind when the situation really demanded it. Her mumbling about how he should have told her didn't really sway him, as he was obstinately convinced that he had done the right thing. He had concealed who the other vigilante was from everyone, not just Sylvi. You sound sleepy, he mused to her, giving her a kiss on the forehead.

I don't know why the vampires attacked tonight, but... They never really show up in the Small Wet Country, you know... he mentioned. It didn't make much sense to him for the vampires to just randomly show up and attack the Castle on Bonfire Night. He figured they had the same sort of goals as the Witch Covens did and those attacks were never random - they were calculated. There had to be some sort of greater force working behind these things, something that they just couldn't see just yet. I think they have to have been after something... Maybe they wanted to kill the Royal Family, take over the Castle... he suggested. Do you think maybe the Land of Long Nights hired them or something? he asked, before he nuzzled her slightly.

I love you too.

Halley Banner


Location: the Docks - the Port -> Wizard Tower Courtyard - the Castle
Skills: Chaos Magyk
Halley considered what Arnora suggested. It seemed incredibly likely that the Queen and Princess were the keys to opening up the secret chamber Loki had previously stashed himself away in, though she was not too certain what exactly they would have been able to achieve. Perhaps there was some sort of genetic lock, but then, how would Loki have been able to bypass the system? Maybe he had something of the Queen or the Princess with him - such as a lock of hair or a jar of toenail clippings - and that was enough?

"I think you might be onto something, Arnora. If the Queen and the Princess are key, as well as some unknown element at the Castle, then maybe we just need their DNA in order to bypass the enchantment... So if we go to the Castle, we should try to grab the hairbrush or something of a member of the Royal Family. That might be all we need - unless it's tied to a certain source of DNA, then we might need something more extreme like blood..."

As for contacting Bruce and Myth, Halley was a bit annoyed with her brother. If he had been here, then they might have made more progress - but presumably, he'd be back at the Castle, probably near the Palace, and they would be able to meet up with him after they got to Wizard Tower. She rolled her wrists slightly, before taking a few moments and reality warped around them as they landed at the courtyard of Wizard Tower. "That answer your question?" she asked Cuyler.

Her eyes then fell on the gleaming silver building. "Shall we, then?"


Gene Benaszewski & Nora Kingston


Location: Athribis - Underground
Skills: Pattern Analysis, Cryptography, Mathematics, Decipher hieroglyphics, Acute Observation
Nora nodded slightly at Lauren's question, hoping that the light really was a good sign. It could easily be Belladonna down there, using her wits and resources to find her way back to the rest of the group. She didn't know what to believe beyond what could be predicted via mathematics and analysis, yet she had an intuition that they would know whether or not Belladonna had caused the flames soon enough. Faye's words struck her as slightly contradictory - rush on ahead, yet be cautious in movement - though Nora did not expect anything different from an American. She knew that she was prejudiced against that country and its citizens, but that did not change Nora's opinions all the same.

Gene had been about to spit in the face of the Lord Major, but for some reason failed to do such a simple thing and ended up dripping spit down her chin. She wiped her face clean with the back of her arm quickly and moved on. Interesting things were happening and she could humiliate the Lord Major later on. The voices interested her more than anything else - the first was Peter, she had spent a great deal of time with him, teaching him what she knew. And then there was George, her "twin brother." The words were out of context, but she figured someone had seen him without his mask on and freaked out. Normals were annoying like that.

Still attempting to navigate, Nora paused, consulting her notes again on what they had seen. She wasn't too sure which way they should proceed from here and with the darkness, she could hardly see. The lighting situation was remedied relatively quickly, stopping them from having to stumble about in the darkness thankfully. "Give me a moment, the path is becoming more challenging to identify," she said to the rest of the Fellowship. So many things were happening all at once, it was getting difficult for her to see the patterns.

The dark haired Emendator looked at Lauren for a moment, considering how to explain what was going on without completely shattering her world view. "I'm not sure - others like me are near, which probably isn't that good of an omen should they have come here. I had thought that the shadow monster - called the Destruere - was here and responsible but... Perhaps not," Gene confessed. "Give me a moment though, I'll see if anything comes to mind. When you've been alive as long as I have been, you see so many strange and unusual things that they can sort of blend together at moments." She looked up towards the ceiling, trying to see what the Lord Major had been going on about.




Andromeda Aldrich


Location: Babylon Fortress, Cairo, Egypt
Skills: Alertness

Andromeda was too focused on not freaking out from her claustrophobia and the sense of the walls closing in around her as she was carried on James' back to notice any eyebrow raises at what she was doing. Sure, later she might realize that it probably had a lot of inappropriate connotations, but the bizarreness of it all was helping some to keep her mind off of the small, confined space they were inside of. It wasn't too long of a journey to their destination and she heard some familiar voices - well, one familiar voice. It was Nancy's voice, the missing Emendator. She had to be close by then, right? And then just as suddenly, she heard Alicia - their brief mentor in all things paradoxical.

Once they got to a stop, Andromeda carefully got off of James. Her cheeks burned bright red as she heard what he said - though at least she wasn't freaking out now. "... Got it," she said, though she wasn't too certain whether or not there would be a next time. The sulphur scent was concerning, as she took that as to be some sort of warning sign of something paranormal coming about, but surprisingly the vanishing ceiling actually helped her to relax slightly. With the ceiling starting to vanish and the sky showing through, she wasn't stuck in a small enclosed space anymore - it made her breathing a little easier to accomplish.

"In my reality, weird things like this happened when time was damaged almost beyond repair - maybe something similar is happening here? Since Alicia... moved on or whatever and we're hearing her, the haze, then the ceiling vanishing, the odd smell..." Andromeda suggested, trying to regain her composure slightly and banish the extreme blush from her cheeks.


Guin Stark


Location: The Palace Grounds - New York (Guin's Outfit)
Skills: Telepathy
Had her future sister in law not been an expert in chaos magic, she might not have believed what happened. As suddenly as the Human Resistance appeared, they all vanished. Only the legitimate invited guests of King Erik and his family remained behind, but there was a fair deal of destruction surrounding them. Part of the castle wall had fallen into ruin, Erik was unconscious and being carried off by Princess Lorna, and then there was the fact that her fiancΓ©, the person who was supposed to be with her for better and for worse, wouldn't even look at her. Her engagement ring felt incredibly heavy on her finger. And as Allison and Oshea embraced each other, without Oshea threatening to throw her inside of a closet or saying that she couldn't be out here... Guin couldn't help but envy them, even though Oshea would die if they changed things back to how they had been. She wanted a relationship like that.

"Don't worry, I'm not going to let someone who won't even look at me stop me," Guin confided to her friend telepathically. She deserved better than being treated like this. Maybe things were better between them in the other world, but she didn't remember that place. All Guin knew was that for the first time in a long time, she actually felt in control of her own life. It hurt like hell - she loved him so deeply - yet he couldn't even look at her. He had blocked her out rather than resolve a fight.

Holding Allison's hand, she felt a little stronger too. Pietro should have been the one who was holding her hand and being there for her, but he wasn't. Allison was. Wanda was being dismissive as ever, though Guin's intuition told her that she knew exactly why they needed to talk to her. "Wanda. It's about what you did," Guin said calmly, even though her insides felt a bit like they were dying. "You changed the world. I don't know why you did it, so now is the time for you to come clean and tell your side of the story - and if you don't, then I swear to god, I won't side with you on this. Only villains have a reason to lie and I think you're better than that, I think you're a hero, so talk damn it - get your monologue on! We're doing this here and now."

Dominika Novikova and Runa Blake


Location: The Human Resistance HQ - New York
Skills: N/A
The ex-Asgardian was still unconscious from Guin's psychic attacks and bleeding from the damage done to her by the twins, Prince Pietro and Princess Wanda. Had she still been of Asgard, that amount of damage likely would have been easily recoverable from and she would have already been up and on her feet, ready to plot the next line of attack. Instead, she was just crumpled like a limp rag doll, unaware of the conversations taking place around her.

Unlike those who remembered the aborted Age of Ultron timeline, Novikova was not an expert when it came to suddenly being sent to another location via magic. She was dizzy for a moment, stumbling forward before she could get her bearings again. They were back in the Human Resistance HQ and she glanced around the room, trying to see if everyone had gotten transported back safely as well. The main issue was there were so many people that had gone as part of the mission, most of them that she didn't even know, so she wasn't sure if they had gotten everyone back. "Is this everyone - even the stealth team?" Novikova asked, before she looked at Max.

"If the stealth team isn't here, you should go back and get them - they could use a quick escape like this," she advised. It sounded like Barton wanted them to focus on getting ready to prepare countermeasures for a reality warp, but they needed the stealth team's confirmation that it really was Princess Wanda who changed the world. The Scarlet Witch definitely had the power set for it and it made sense - her brother had gone off to join the X-Men, leaving her behind with the Brotherhood. Anyone would be angry about that and wish for a world where their family was back together again. Novikova's main concern was that even if they confronted Wanda about it, what was going to prevent her from doing something like this again?

"Yeah, we should," she agreed with Maria softly. James was offering healing to anyone who needed it. "Mind looking at this leg?" she asked him, gesturing towards the bloody wound.

Casper Theriot


Location: the Crown Room - Baton Rouge
Skills: Mediumship
"Assez beaux," Casper corrected, having a similar expression to the one his father wore when correcting his students on matters of grammar. Ben noticed it, but since telling Casper that he resembled Professor X in any shape or form was only going to cause his friend to spiral down into some form of self destructive behavior. He had spent about half of his life as a ghost nanny to Casper and he had tons of experience when it came to managing the ever changing moods of Casper Xavier Theriot.

"Uh, what the hell?" Ben exclaimed, his eyes wide as Bobbi dropped like a fly.

"I mean it's an Infinity Stone she just touched..." Casper speculated, bending down to try to help Bobbi up to her feet. There was a flash of light in the room and Casper shut his eyes for a moment, only to notice that seemingly his brother had had his memories restored. Had that been what happened to Bobbi? Was her real life so painful? Casper bit his lip. He liked her - he really hoped that there was nothing but happiness waiting for her on the other side.

"Jackie, Jackie, Jackie!" Casper said hurriedly, before he realized he didn't know what to say. "We need to keep this away from the Thieves Guild. I don't know why we're here, I have to assume you kidnapped a child and they blackmailed you into joining - that or you slept with the boss' wife and you have to work off your debt to him so he doesn't kill you..."


Cecily Ashworth


Location: The Asylum - Outside
Skills: N/A

"I majored in Chemistry at Carnegie Mellon," Cecily explained to Riley quickly. "Almost any chemical can explode if you try hard enough," she then added with a slight smile. So many of the labs she had to take involved looking up the SDS profiles of the chemicals they were working with and writing down buzz words about them - such as toxic, flammable, skin irritant, toxic to aquatic life... Of course, some of those SDS were rather extreme, saying that sand was going to kill you if you used it - but some of them were fairly accurate. That wasn't the only thing they learned - her organic chemistry professors liked to use the synthesis of different narcotics as examples for a multi-step synthesis and various ways to optimize procedures.

She heard Alicia's explanation of dead voices and assumed that she meant that whoever was in there, it was too late for them and they were basically dead anyways. Sure, Alicia had been dead - she had helped Natasha some with the autopsy - but she was figuring she might have faked her death or something... At any rate, Alicia was giving her major Doctor Strange vibes - probably aided by the shadowy monster and the fact that no one else knew what was going on. She didn't even have time to duck on her own before Roy had gotten her ducked down behind one of the cars. Alicia's mention of hellfire only strengthened the Doctor Strange image - or maybe she was more like Magik?

Cecily put her hands on her ears as the bomb went off, hearing the scream first and moving her trembling hands to her ears when the blast happened. "...Are we dead?" Cecily asked Roy, her voice shaking.


Leda Storm

Location: Camp Half-Blood 6E
Skills: N/A

Leda grinned wickedly, seeing that Mona used her powers so confidently to make Annabelle fall in love with her. It was epic - but also worrisome. She didn't like the hypothetical that a daughter of Aphrodite could do that to her - she'd much rather get into a consensual relationship with them rather than a forced one. Still though, moral problems aside, it was pretty damn epic. "Better hope she doesn't hex you for that later, luv," Leda advised Mona. She didn't let on that she was grateful when Kiera mentioned that she didn't need to be carried back - her arms were pretty sore. While she could travel at super fast speeds, it didn't give her amazing upper body strength. All of her muscle and stamina pretty much went to her legs.

"It was way too easy this week to win," Leda mused. Still though, it wasn't surprising that the Athena Team had essentially easily beaten the Ares Team. The Hermes kids hadn't made any effort to stop the Iris speedsters as far as she could tell and with Mona's easy control over love, they managed to take out just about the only person guarding the flag. It shocked her that the Ares team hadn't thought of putting someone with Annabelle - but then again, thinking wasn't the strong suit of Ares' kids.
