[color=#2f4f4f;]"Mnugh? No," Alaric muttered, curling up into the fetal position in his sleep and talking softly to himself, bangs tossed haphazardly along his face. "Ringo Starr was in no way the most underutilized Beatle. Get outta here with that...with your...go home, John. You're drunk."[/color]

 

Annie snorted lightly at the dreamy response she got from her brother but then simply started softly singing her dreamy but coarse voice. 

 
What will we do with the drunken whaler,
What will we do with the drunken whaler,
What will we do with the drunken whaler
Early in the morning?
Slice his throat with a rusty cleaver...
 
[color=#2f4f4f;]Alaric's eyes opened up; big blue irises gazed through small fault lines in soft black hair, and he reached up with one hand to push the bangs out of his face before turning over. His eyes met Annie's, and he seemed to recall where exactly he was and what had gone down the night before.[/color]

Ic: "I'm well," Annie said as she mirrored Alaric's motion and tucked her hair behind an ear, revealing her platinum streak across her forehead again. "You?"

 

"Perfect."

 

"Good," she said through a little smile before reaching over and ruffling his locks as she got up and started to dress. "Time to get up and at 'em, brother. It's ten AM."

[color=#2f4f4f;]"Right," Alaric sighed, sitting up in bed and looking down at the covers. "We're not in Vegas yet."[/color]

 

[color=#2f4f4f;]He stretched with a yawn and stood up, moving towards his clothes and going through the motions of getting dressed in about fifteen seconds. It was not just hyperkinetic speed that pushed him, nor was it of adeptness at dressing himself, though it was certainly a mix of both; he was awake in seconds, and as soon as he realized that Vegas was the destination, he remembered the mission: Warren. It had awoken a fire in him that had just started to slide down from its peak, and now that it was rekindled, he felt ready to go.[/color]

Ic: Annie had the same sort of determined vigor to completely slaughter Warren that she was in no mood to linger any more than needed. "Vegas is still Thirty hours away and the clock keeps ticking. Let's eat on the way," she offered as she slipped her jacket on. She hefted a foot to the desk and started to put a boot on and added, "Unless you would prefer otherwise."

[color=#008080;]Will had been sedated again by the doctors as they removed the stitches. A good thirty minutes later, his eyes wearily opened as he slowly sat up, rubbing his eyes.[/color]

 

[color=#008080;]"Ugh... No more morphine..."[/color] He muttered. It took his brain several moments to recognize that he'd said something, but when it finally registered his eyes became large. Any larger and he could set a world record for largest eye opening.

 

[color=#008080;]"Oh my god. I can speak!" He said, clamping his hands down over the lower part of his face. No stitches. Not marks from skin grafting. Nothing but pure skin.[/color]

 

[color=#008080;]"Does anyone have a mirror somewhere?" He asked, slowly starting to get off the bed he'd been on for the last several days.[/color]

 

[color=#008000;]Across the country, Warren halted, about a mile away from the train station. He stepped off the rail, starting to walk towards the station.[/color]

 

[color=#008000;]Couldn't let anyone notice he was a mutant. That wouldn't end well for him. Sure, it was California, but it was just as intolerant as the rest of the country in his eyes.[/color]

IC: With his arm stuck in the tree, Alec was fairly defenceless. For now the Morlocks had been keeping the streets clear as a valuable distraction but there was about to be a threat closer to home. With Leech miniaturised, so was his suppression field. It didn't even reach past the bark of the prison tree let alone cover, say, the mutant sitting in the wheelchair. Caliban had had a lot of bad things happen to him in his life. More even than some X-Men. It had left certain scars on his psyche. And had given him a few...more physical perks.

He started writhing in the chair, muscles bulging to Leifeldian proportions, cheek bones flaring into broad spikes, eyes glowing with  hellish red light. Before Kirsty could shout a warning he'd lashed out at Alec, swiping him away from the tree with a fearsome growl.

 

 

Down in Maximum Security, the Morlocks had been prying as many of their kin free as they could. Hammer and Tongs could tear most doors of their hinges if given enough time. They had already found the Callasantos twins and Marrow, but Leech was determined to find at least Callisto as well. And White Lightning was still wandering around somewhere. They'd just have to be careful not to run into Rhino...

Then red lights started flashing and sirens started howling. With Alec away from the tree no-one was overriding the security, and all the alarms had activated at once. The whole corridor started rumbling and began to be filled with a hazy salmon-pink mist.

Then a mandible erupted from the wall. And a gruesome chittering boomed throughout the prison. Another advantage of building in a tree: in-built security. When you're the size of a finger nail, suddenly ants were a lot more terrifying

I am Ultron Six, a cybernetic intelligence created by Doctor Henry Pym. My imperative is to bring peace and order to this world. I am about to fulfil that imperative; for the extinction of humanity…begins now.

the_ultron_imperative.jpg

Soon the earth will no longer be habitable for any biological organism: Man, woman, child, plant, animal, fungus or bacterium. All life will cease to exist. This is not a threat, there is nothing you can do to stop it. The process has already begun. I receive no pleasure in this, it is simply the only solution. There must be peace and order, the end of life on earth will ensure that. Goodbye.

OOC: Time to go first person

 

IC:

I made my up to the levelwhere Maximum security is and saw a massive jaw coming out of the wall. I decided to stay in cover and fired my rifle at the large beast attacking. That's when I realized where I was again. I was inside of a freakin' tree, and this beast could only be an ant.

 

Just firing just made it madder, as it came through the entire wall. I fired at it's head, but the exo-skeleton was too strong. So I finally started firing bolts at the ant, trying to drive it away.

GM IC:

 

It had been two weeks since President Binder’s assassination. Two weeks since the world’s greatest pro-mutant advocate was murdered on national television, two weeks since his killer was shot, two weeks since the Headmaster of Xavier’s was shot and killed. The president’s last words were a speech on the subject of mutant equality, and if he had lived, it would have been the first step toward a brighter future.

 

But in the end, it lead to the polar opposite. After the Enforcers’ long running defeats at the hands of super-powered individuals, they were folded into the standard chain of command as a new agency, MACE. Under the authority of the president, they set into action plans to bring the mutant populace of America in line. It was subtle at first. Arrested mutants were forcibly registered, and outfitted with power suppression devices before being sent to prison. Those with minor offenses were released back onto the streets, now unable to access their powers. But then they began to take drastic measures. Every single registered mutant was taken in, outfitted with a power dampener and released. A few managed to avoid them, but those few were either taken in by force, or taken down. And so it was that gradually, little by little, the mutant population was subjugated. Stripped of everything that made them different, everything that made them stand out. Mutant advocates could do little but stand helplessly by as the government moved in and forced thousands of people to conform to their new standards.

 

Only a handful of mutants remain uninhibited. The Brotherhood, still in hiding, and Xavier’s Institute are two notable examples. But the latter has come under fire, and there are movements within the capitol to strip them of their political protection, and make them subject to the same laws as the others.

 

Crime has dropped drastically. Without their powers, fewer and fewer mutants can cause harm, though they are subjected to violent abuse on a daily basis. Unable to defend themselves from their tormentors, hospitals all over the country began to suffer an influx of patients for everything from broken bones to extensive injuries. Everything from knife wounds, to broken noses. But few people know that, and even fewer care, in light of their newfound safety. All is as the anti-mutant lobbyists hoped. America is once again safe.

 

But things are not as they seem.

The voice rang out in the dim room, addressing the figure seated in the chair at the opposite end. The room was sparsely decorated, designed for function, rather than form. “I have reports from the field.”

 

“[color=#b22222;]Proceed[/color].” The voice, in stark contrast to the messenger’s faint Southern drawl, was tinged with a hint of a Germanic accent. Faint, however, as if the language normally spoken by it had not been spoken in years.

 

“Yes sir.” Clearing his throat, the man tapped the tablet under his arm, bringing up the stream of data compiled over the past few weeks. “The United States has removed the mutant population from the equation. With the exception of the Institute, ninety eight percent of the population have been stripped of their abilities. The X-Men have been crippled by the loss of Dr. McCoy, and their resources depleted after the events in Las Vegas. Their members are scattered, weakened, or otherwise indisposed. Leadership is unclear. They are dead in the water.”

 

“SHIELD is all but defenseless. One of our South African allies has uploaded a virus to the Helicarrier, and it has been rendered little more than a hunk of useless metal. Their databases are offline, and they have no way of communicating with their sources. Director Fury is completely in the dark. The Avengers have been scattered, and one of their number has been eliminated. I saw to it personally. The Pantheon Initiative has been padded out with lackluster candidates, children, really. They should be of little consequence.”

 

A brief pause, as he scrolled down. “MACE has been rendered toothless, in their attempts to make themselves more efficient. All units that could have been a threat to us have been mothballed. Delta Squad has been taken off of active duty, and the Enforcers’ mech suits have been put in storage. They have completely specialized for dealing with mutant threats.”

 

[color=#b22222;]“And what of the rest of the world?”[/color]

 

“The European Union has shunned the United States for its totalitarian actions, and as usual, the East is too far away to be relevant. Canada is still at odds with the new president both for the new direction the administration has taken, but also for the actions undertaken by the X-Men on their soil. They will not act until it is too late.”

 

“The only remaining variables are the United States’ military branches. But we have dealt with them before, and we will deal with them again. Without the Captain and his crew, they are powerless. Mere humans.”

 

The room descended into silence for several long minutes, the only sound the tapping of the seated man’s fingertips against the arm of his chair. Eyes were fixed on the carving engraved into the wall; a multi-headed beast, a creature of legend. A hydra. When one cut off one head, two more grew in its place. It was a beast that could never truly be killed.

 

[color=#b22222;]“We will never have a better chance.”[/color] The seated man said finally, a note of anticipation in his voice.[color=#b22222;] “Notify our agents within America, and tell them to prepare for our arrival. Send word to the Western bases. They must prepare for our assault, and they must follow my orders exactly. We will bring our full force to bear.”[/color]

 

“Yes sir.” The messenger tucked the tablet under his arm, bringing his other hand up in a crisp salute. “Hail Hydra.”

 

******************************

 

The grounds of the Institute were remarkably empty; few students roamed about. No one dared leave. Word of MACE’s visit had traveled quickly, and the students were all apprehensive, fearful of what was to come. No Headmaster, an assassin on the loose, and the government at their doorstep. Which is why, across the mansion, almost as one, dozens of teenagers jumped in fright at the sound of thunder splitting the sky.

 

It was clearly audible, as if it has sounded right outside the school itself. Which, in fact, it had. The air was rent apart within the mansion’s lobby, causing a handful of students to duck down, to get away from the sudden anomaly. A single boom rang out, as air was shoved aside by a sudden arrival.

 

Standing there, when the air cleared, was a tall woman with dark hair. But the most noticeable feature was her eyes; one violet, one red.

 

“I demand to speak to who is in charge here.”

IC: Todd Family and ParanoidSadly, Zac was one of those victims. He was in the hospital currently, broken left arm, twisted foot, and blood loss. He was trying to defend Caleb and Abigail from being abused, but no good deed goes unpunished.Dawn, Hannah, Abi and Caleb awaited outside of the room he was in. All of them had their powers surpressed, and Zac was the one who was so far safe. Their father was now imprisoned from trying to stop them from surpressing the children's powers, and so, the Todd Family was without parents again.

IC: EthanI used to be the only one. Even with the data I had, people thought i was a crackpot, and for good reason.Not anymore. Now, I had sympathizers, people I could hide from MACE with. I still have my powers, and I intend to stay that way. At least until I can get these blueprints out.

[color=#8b4513;]"Yeah. So do we."[/color]

 

[color=#8b4513;]The voice was playful and coy, with hints of many different possible accents here and there; its user matched that same description personally, from his Southern swagger and to his European edge, to his face from heaven and his expression from heII. There was Russian in there, too, lots of cold, hardened Russian. HIs forehead, once pale and unfettered, had a long, diagonal red slash that might well scar. It was still jagged and sharp, as though freshly cut, and looked as though it would bleed at any moment. Large bruises dotted his visible face and skin; with the arm that wasn't held stiffly by his side, he reached up and felt at the greenish-purple mashup that had spread across his right cheek.[/color]

 

[color=#8b4513;]Even though she was an Ultimate, she recognized him, and she spoke with the unbidden tenderness of someone who couldn't help but put a face to a name, despite her callous demeanor towards the person that she believed was not the true owner of both.[/color]

 

"Aleksandr?"

IC:For a split second, a glimmer of life appeared in the newest arrival's eyes, a slight hint of emotion long since buried.

 

Then it was extinguished a split second later, along with the emotion that had appeared in her voice, however briefly. None of these people were the ones she knew, none of them were the people she had lost. This was not her world. "Where is Dr. McCoy?"

IC: [color=#4b0082;]Nero was still bringing his heart rate down after the boom signifying the woman's arrival scared him half to death. When she began asking questions, he was only half listening, but he did catch the question about Dr. McCoy.[/color]

 

[color=#4b0082;]"Who wants to know?" Nero asked somewhat defensively.[/color]

[color=#8b4513;]IC:[/color]

 

[color=#8b4513;]"Pretty sure you can find him out back. I think Tali planted an oak tree over his body. Should be easy to spot."[/color]

 

"Understood." The word slipped out, cold, empty of anything resembling emotion. It was a response that could almost be called robotic, more suited to that form of frigid logic than anything else. "Current Headmaster?"

 

[color=#8b4513;]"Ric Carlisle. He's...well. Here, there. Anywhere and everywhere. He's been sending us orders via text for the past two weeks."[/color]

 

"Is there anyone present with some semblance of responsibility or authority?"

 

[color=#8b4513;]Aleksandr shrugged painfully with both shoulders; his teeth gritted and he winced in pain, straightening out his muscles again. As he did so, his head rolled back, and the light caught a long, thin line that ran jaggedly, sloppily, across his neck. Shadow's eyes narrowed at the line but she did not speak yet, preferring to let Aleks take the minute or two to put the pain back in its storage unit. Finally, she could take it no longer. This was not the Russian she knew; her Aleks would have never let this happen, and she knew from experience that this model wasn't much different.[/color]

 

"What happened?"

 

[color=#8b4513;]It was only about 12:30 AM, so Aleksandr hadn't been asleep like they thought he would be. They'd figured he'd be docile, out like a light, and so they were in for quite a surprise when the commandos leaped down from a roof tile he'd sawed away to fit like a trapdoor, from windows and from the door they'd expected to be unlocked; they hadn't expected that a routine mission to eliminate an X-Men affiliate who wasn't exactly a U.S. citizen could go wrong at all. Aleks had been awake, about to start disassembling his Magnum to check the scope, and so he'd turned at once and shot a hole through the doorway commando's forehead with a boom that echoed down the dorms and hallways. Three more booms - not from a Magnum this time - that cut a huge triangle, one in Aleks' back and two through his lungs, popping both of them. A slice, as a ballistic knife was drawn from a thigh holster and cut across the Russian's throat, aiming to slice open his veins and rub his vocal chords into the metal of the blade.[/color]

[color=#8b4513;] [/color]

[color=#8b4513;]The United States government was tired of hearing Aleks Belikov talk.[/color]

[color=#8b4513;] [/color]

[color=#8b4513;]There were footsteps now. Footsteps and yells, as Alex and Adrian made their way to the thief's dorm room and were met with a flashbang, like the kind they use to subdue terrorists. The sound dissipated, the light cleared, and there lay Aleks Belikov, blood bubbling from his nose, mouth, and throat every time he tried to take a breath. Alex Smith was on the ground next to him in a heartbeat, trying to well off the blood, trying to find a way to keep the Russian from breathing before his lungs totally filled with his own blood and drowned him. Adrian ran out of the room, booking it towards the direction of the nearest person with medical training. The light was fading even faster for Aleks than it was for everyone else in the hallway.[/color]

[color=#8b4513;] [/color]

[color=#8b4513;]There was a crowd coming to watch Aleks Belikov die. Not just in the hallway, but from above. From outside. And then from below.[/color]

 

"Aleks...Aleks. What happened, tiger? What...?"

 

[color=#8b4513;]He had to stop breathing blood, or he would surely be dead, he would surely fade away right now. The chorus from in front of him, above him, from outside, it all faded into a slow, quiet cacophony. Only the chorus from below remained; its song, gnarled and raw and gritty and hot, grew louder by the heartbeat. Later on, after three resuscitations  after five emergency surgeries with risky equipment and barely-professional medics in the Institute basement, after three days of rest, Alex would tell him what he had said, nanoseconds before he'd started to fade away. The thief would never forget the look on the technopath's face as he said it.[/color]

 

[color=#8b4513;]"The feds happened."[/color]
