Panic at Home

WHO: Those left behind: Viti, Melinda, Guardian Dragons, X-Force, Team 3, Martha, Emma
WHAT: Defend McCoy’s lab, aid McCoy in any way possible
WHERE: District X
WHEN: Shortly after the recovery team’s departure; early evening
WARNING(S): Violence, mentions of medical procedures

"...confirmed reports of uncontrollable fires, electrical surges, and other instances of apparent uncontrolled mutant powers coming from District X, the largest concentration of the afflicted in the city..."

"...a tragic event where a busy intersection collapsed into a massive sinkhole, swallowing dozens of cars. A known mutant was spotted near the scene; we will keep you updated as the situation unfolds..."


It was barely hours since the Blackbird had left, hours, and in came thundering the next crisis. A critically ill mutant’s power had not only hastened the illness, but raged out of control—killing innocent bystanders in the process.

Protesters had sprouted up since the virus had been found—human and mutant, sometimes even both in the same crowd, demanding that the infected be shipped out, sent away, put anywhere but here. Now, they were quickly galvanizing into riots, and worse...

Get to the District. Secure McCoy’s lab, protect the sick there. Control the damage.

And see if the reports of Sinister’s soldiers in the crowds are true.

Guardian Dragons

Given the emergency situation, it was time for the Guardian Dragons to act, particularly now that the team had grown to a fair size, and they'd been through some training--even if it was considerably less than Alric would have liked. Still, it was enough that he could trust them to do their best, to take care not to let things get out of hand. His attention turned toward that growing din, his expression stern but calm.

"...remember, we're not going to war, and we're not facing some sworn enemy. Only frightened people. Our first priority is to protect this lab and those inside, but we protect those in the streets, as well; there's been enough innocent blood shed already. Restraint must be our watchword, this day."

Alicia was nervous being with a new team. Serving with a new squad was taking some getting used to, getting used to a new CO, a new way of getting orders, not to mention still not knowing how her powers work and being thrown into action. Still, Alric's sense of command as soon as he starts speaking calms her nerves as she stands at attention.

"Sir!"
knighterrantofthedragon: Alric smiling faintly from in front (head-on smile)

[personal profile] knighterrantofthedragon 2015-08-30 06:51 am (UTC)(link)
Alric smiled a little, serious but reassuring.

"At ease, Miss Melchiott. As much as one can be, in these circumstances. Keep our training in mind, and we'll acquit ourselves well."

Just this one post

Viti stepped out of the dark, approaching the guardians with a laminated ID dangling from neck, slapping against his chest as he walked.

Short, fat, hunched, and from the shadows Viti seemed to be another species when compared to the proud, regal, heights of the Guardian Dragons. Still he had his uses.

He lifted his ID of his neck. "Hey Alric. I was called in to help in the lab. My name should be on the list." Viti offered his Student ID card, as if they didn't already know each other.

"There's something else too. I just visited District X a couple of days ago, and have a report on the trouble I encountered."

Viti pulled out the folded report and handed it to Alric.

"Long story short, Reki and I were attacked by people who wanted throw out the sick people. Honestly, I don't know that the intelligence I compiled is very actionable, but it's yours. Some brat named Joss helped with the report too by the way."

(ooc note: anything that happened in this thread (http://xavier-institute-logs.dreamwidth.org/40436.html#comments) is now known to the dragons. Also, unless Viti is explicitly called out, this will be his only post in this thread.)

knighterrantofthedragon: Alric smiling slightly, head tilted (tilted smile)

[personal profile] knighterrantofthedragon 2015-08-30 07:00 am (UTC)(link)
"Ah, Mr. DeFalco. I saw, yes."

Alric smiled politely and nodded in greeting, barely glancing at the ID--then raised his eyebrows at the mention of a report, accepting it and glancing through quickly as he listened.

"...mm. Just how likely do you believe they are to commit themselves to violence? I'd rather discourage them than risk harming them, if possible."

Part of the growing of the team that didn't help was taking part of another team as well. At least it was a team that worked toghter before! Part of said team was off to the side, just keeping a close eye out. Marisa was trying to figure out exactly how to modify or what all she could use if and when something was to happen.

"Otherwise known as keep it non-lethal and keep the idiots from hurtin' the lab, us or themselves in stupid manners. Sounds easy- We'll see when the shit hits the fan right?"

She's still in a fairly grumpy mood, although she's been cooling off slowly.

"Don't jinx it, Marisa," Flandre said lightly, even smiling, standing straight up and almost at parade rest, wings and hands folded neatly behind her back. It helped take her mind off of the sound of the approaching crowd, the roar of voices, shattering glass-

"Do you think taking off would help?" -no, distracted. Distractions.

Hijikata stood behind the members of the team, watching Alric's little speech to them at a little distance.

There was nothing for him to add, really. Alric did a better job of saying it that he could, in some ways -- he was never good at the part about people not being their enemies, not compared to the best of his compatriots.

It was good, too, to see how Alric had grown over the year -- not only in skill, but in the regard of the people he'd fought to hard to gather together and lead. Hijikata wasn't about to undermine that leadership by talking too much, by holding his hand through parts of the process where it wasn't needed. It was his turn to listen, to be on standby for the inevitable moment when his strength or brains or experience were needed, but to let someone else hold the reins so long as they were managing them well.

[personal profile] tiamaris 2015-09-07 12:08 pm (UTC)(link)
Tiamaris had stayed close to Alric as they traveled here, his eyes a dark orange. He was coming to help protect. To defend. To prove that maybe Alric was right, that maybe being a dragon was not the same as being a monster. He was going to do his best.


Unfortunately... restraint... was not his strong suit.

But he could be intimidating, just by standing there. "Should I be a large roadblock in front of the lab?" he asked.

Viti had gotten lost on his way to the lab, but being short let him crawl through the shadows to avoid the gangs. Still the distant shouting of the protesters made his heart beat harder with apprehension. He growled.

Being a small, unimpressive 13 year old had been helping keep Viti alive. Made sure all the strong people didn't notice him, but he was sick of it. He been shouting for almost two months now, but he was too young too inexperienced to be heard, and he had enough of that.

He showed his ID to the people outside. He had left early, so was on time even though he was got lost. He was nodded in. He didn't have too, but he kicked open the door with his fist clenched, and stood tall like he was king, because, he was going to be heard, for his sake, and for everyone else's.

"Dr. McCoy! I got a med's school worth of knowledge backlogged in my brain, so for the love of humanity give me a crack at this virus!"

Viti hit his fist into his palm. He strutted like wasn't an unimpressive 13 year old boy.

[Annoyed, Beast immediately wanted to shout at the kid. That was the last thing the sick needed to hear, a little boy screaming in the middle of a room full of sick. Instead of shouting he immediately shot Viti an angry glare and then pointed to a microscope with a sample of blood he had already looked at.]

Be quiet and get to work if you are going to. If not you can go back outside and help keep the line in order.

[While Melinda doesn't have any medical experience to speak of she does have the ability to freeze people in time and has therefore been sent to the lab on a trial basis to see if it can be of any use with the more agitated patients. So far the results are a bit inconclusive, especially since she doesn't yet have the control to guarantee that she'll manage to freeze the patient without also freezing the person standing next to her waiting to give aid. On the plus side she's gotten a lot of practice on cancelling her powers?]

Um... maybe I should try that again?

Starbucks run?

Starbucks run.

There's a twelve-year-old with a cardboard tray of coffee cups very carefully edging into the lab and stepping out of the way of anyone rushing from one end to the other, because as much as he'd like to do something a little more useful, getting in the way is going to be the fastest way to make sure he's not even invited to do this much again.

(The technobabble is way over his head, but every now and then someone makes a status report in fairly plain English. It's more than he'd pick up waiting back at the school.)

Whenever he's got a path between people that isn't going to cause more trouble than it's worth, he slides through to get to whoever's at their workstation and looking in dire need of a second wind. "You had the...hazelnut latte?"

Tenma, on the other hand, had a Subway run. Luckily, he made everyone write down their orders, so it was only a matter of matching a similarly wrapped sandwich to rushing and panicked science people. He weaved his way around people, tables, and computers instinctively, using his telekinesis to keep the bags of not-as-fresh-as-you-think sandwiches hovering over his head.

He ends up at the workstation across from where Ken was delivering coffee.

"Sandwich??" He blurted as he telekinetically juggled the bags around. While the frazzled volunteer rummaged for their sandwich, he looked back at his teammate, only offering him a weak smile. This was not what he had in mind for his team, after all.

While some might have thought her bent hard at work with something intricate or delicate what Melinda is really doing is resting her head against the desk trying to somehow get some rest without actually falling asleep. The announcement of coffee has her raising her head, a hopeful verging on desperate look in her eyes.

"Coffee? Hazelnut? That's me. I think?" She was pretty sure that was what she had asked for, though in her current state she couldn't feel very certain about anything. But if it turned out that the person in front of her was nothing but an hallucination brought on by wishful thinking Melinda was giving up for the day.

[The problem with practising to activate your powers on reflex is that sometimes that very reflex can be triggered by something you didn't intend it to. Like someone trying to walk past you, or making any kind of movement right at the corner of your eye. And, unfortunately, this is even more likely to happen when the mutant in question is running on too much coffee and not enough sleep.

It's always hard to know if the person being frozen will realize that, for just a moment, they have been standing still while the world has moved around them but for those who do it can be a rather jarring experience. If they haven't realized they may be a bit confused as to why she's suddenly looking a lot more awkward than she did a moment ago.]
