WHO: Those selected for the mission, plus general attendees at the rally.
WHAT: The Mutant Liberation Front is having a major rally in District X tonight.
WHERE: District X
WHEN: Evening
WARNING(S): Will get violent.

The tension in the air was palpable. The crowd that had gathered was massive, many of them wearing MLF armbands and face masks. Signs were lifted, chants were heard, there was even a nearby bonfire with scarecrows being torched, their faces covered in photographs of Graydon Creed and William Stryker...

The stage set up was crude. There were only a few spotlights, and a rudimentary PA system. A few people had already spoken, but there was still a rumbling in the audience. They all knew that SHE was here. The woman who had thrown the first stone. A woman whose name they had all come to respect. They chanted for her.

Ren. Ko. Ren. Ko. Ren. Ko....

It was as if she was some sort of mutant messiah, and these were her disciples...

[[ The first top level will be for general rally mingling. The second top level will be for Xavier's peacemakers. The third for Emma's Hellions. And finally, after some time, a new top level will go up when the Friends of Humanity inevitably crash the party. Have fun! ]]

"...demonstrations quickly broke into violence as members of both Friends of Humanity and the Mutant Liberation Front attacked one another in various scuffles all throughout the evening in various locations around the US, particularly in Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, and Washington DC. Police have attempted to keep the situation under control, but neither group has made it very easy..."

"... President Kelly's return has also brought on several questions about the Genoshan situation and now the current strife in the US has effected those negotations. Kelly has simply stated that he has faith in the ambassadors still in Genosha and in the American people to come to a peaceful resolution on the mutant crisis..."

"... in an extremely rare interview, Shaw told Rosetta Riley that, in his view, Mutant Registration was the precipice of the not just the new decade, but what would shape the way historians looked at the early 21st century entirely. He said that while he regrets his company in their involvement in Project Wideawake, he still supports Registration on principle, he just feels the federal government has very little in the way of resources to enforce it the way it would be needed to fairness and liberty for mutant citizens...."

"... soup kitchens across District X were defaced overnight with anti-mutant graffiti, much of which parodying the now famous MLF logo. Some of them even had their food stocks tampered with, forcing organizers to scramble to make up for the damaged food..."

"... found dead after the protests cleared out, with the MLF logo spraypainted on his back. Relatives and mourners described the young man as a positive force in his community. He had many mutant friends as well, who described his death as unjustifiable and proof that the MLF is as dangerous as those they claim to fight against..."

WHO: What faculty and students are still left at campus during the holiday.
WHAT: A Thanksgiving dinner for the school.
WHERE: The dining hall
WHEN: Thanksgiving Day
WARNING(S): none

Logan preferred hockey to football, but it was on, so the bigscreen was left there while he and what faculty were left plated everything buffet style, with a stack of plates at the end of the line for students to pick up and gather what they wanted. And, of course, all dietary conditions were met by the variety of foods, thanks to Hank's thorough list he'd made. Logan, of course, looked a bit more grumpy about it since Ororo was gone to spend time with her family, leaving him behind to babysit the kids. At least that's how he thought of it. At least he was left in good company...

[[ Part 2! Pretty much all the Thanksgiving staples are accounted for, as well as alternative foods for characters with special diets. Mingle at will! ]]

WHO: Kurt and a selection of students that were asked to join the parade! ... And unfortunately the Friends of Humanity as well.
WHAT: The Macy's Thanksgiving Parade
WHERE: 6th Av, Manhattan
WHEN: Early in the morning, Thanksgiving Day
WARNING(S): none

There were few things in life that Kurt Wagner enjoyed more than a parade. And after pulling a lot of strings, the Xavier Institute was allowed a float in 2018 in the world famous Macy's parade! He'd handled the construction of the float himself, a giant pirate-ship, and wore his best Errol Flynn, encouraging his colleagues and students to go full buccaneer as well. For the fun of it, of course. It was a day to really shine some awareness on the mutant situation, and show gratitude to everyone that had supported the Institute and mutants around the world. Several pro-mutant charities had hung banners from the "sails" of the "ship". All in all, they'd definitely get a lot of attention!

... Of course, when word got out that mutants would be in the parade, that turned rather ugly pretty fast. The news crews covering the event were reluctant to show it, but the Friends of Humanity had shown up in force. Signs with hurtful slogans, angry yelling, a whole slew of them lined up and down 6th Avenue to jeer at the float as they passed by. Kurt, however, refused to let them win. He smiled and waved with the best of them, and he hoped his students would follow his example...

[[ Part 1 of the holiday activities. Students are free to NPC members of Friends of Humanity for the benefit of their threads, but please note that it's highly unlikely anything more than verbal confrontations will happen, with the NYPD being stationed along the barrier. If you do want to have a fight break out, keep in mind it should not logically get hectic. This is post dated to Thursday and feel free to make your own top levels! ]]

Senator Creed enthusiastically exclaimed that the era of letting mutants go unchecked were finally going to come to an end..."

"... calling themselves the 'Mutant Liberation Front', or MLF, the campaign of vandalism and propaganda has been extensive in Europe and has started to appear in the United States and Canada as well. The MLF are most recognized by their tag sign of the double helix, along with the word LIBERATE. Most authorities are not incredibly concerned, as the group has been non-violent so far..."

"... as talks have broken down with Genosha.

"... projecting the coldest winter in the last twenty years for much of the United States. Certain voices outside the scientific community have gone from denying climate change to accepting it, under the caveat that climate change is now being blamed on possible mutant interference... "

WHO: John Sublime, "No Girl", the U-Men, and their unfortunate target... The Insitute
WHAT: Sublime's U-Men attack the school. They're aiming for the sublevels. Stop them at all costs!
WHERE: Throughout campus
WHEN: Past midnight, Wednesday-Thursday
WARNING(S): Gonna get violent.

The time was now. The media attention over his followers actions was too much. And after all, Xavier's little henchmen in London had figured it out. He was sure of it. There was no more time to bide. No more room for hesitation. It was act now, or the revolution would end in a prison cell, festering away in the disgusting care of this unclean world. Sublime couldn't stomach it. Couldn't fathom it. And whatever god help those who stood in the way of him and his dream of Homo Perfectus.

"All units are in place," Sublime whispered, peering out over the immaculate green, covered in moonlight, staring a drilling, piercing hole into the mansion. "Martha... it's your turn now," another whisper, as the floating apparatus before him, holding a strange glowing orb, began to shine even more brightly.

Just like that, the security systems failed. And just like that, Charles Xavier gasped and sent out a short, psychic burst to all X-Men, perhaps to everyone in the school, before he was overwhelmed and silenced, collapsing from his bed to the floor, stunned into sleep by a psychic force even he was not prepared for.

"This is it, Martha... our dream... U-Men! Bring me the Ashes of the Phoenix!" And like that, dozens of the men from the blurred video that Glamour and Spy had managed to obtain swarmed the ground, organic and mechanical, using a plethora of stolen mutant powers, attacked.

[[ This is it! Our first major action post, and in X-Men tradition, it's a direct attack on campus. Feel free to start your own threads. The U-Men will be NPC'd by the mods. Their ultimate goal is the filed away genetic samples of Jean Grey in the sublevels. They must be stopped, before someone uses them to integrate Jean's powers into a U-Man. ]]
