But it would never replace Who You Are

Between the kidnapping, the blood-colored sky, and the zombies, it had been a very long day for everyone.

So everyone was understandably a bit on edge when a werewolf, his cousin and two aliens crashed into a clearing containing another alien, a mutant, and two regular humans.

((Cue: Xavin, Karolina, Eliza, Cyrus, Teddy, Victor, Chase, and Kate. Fight, freak out, or flail))

Chase pulled his switchblade back out, if there was going to be trouble, he would most certainly help out anyway he could. He stood very defensively behind Hulkling waiting for whatever was about to attack them.

"Oh hell," Eliza muttered, eyeing Knife Boy. "Cyrus, we need some calm here..." She swung out of his arms and stepped behind him.

Sure, it wasn't brave to let Cyrus act as a human (well, lycanthropic) sheild, but he could take the damage a LOT better than she could.

Cyrus raised up his furry hands in what he hoped would be read as a peaceful gesture.

"Nnnot herrre to fiiight." he said slowly, hoping that he could make himself understood. He then began to hum. It was a soothing noise, far more calming than any noise had the right to be. There was an undercurrent of apprehension to it, but it inforced his words -- not here to fight you.

Anole stepped forward, with his holding out his arms the same way the wolf man was to show he wasn't going to attack either. "Hi, I take it you guys are stuck here too?

"I'm Anole, and behind me are Chase, Hawkeye, and Hulkling. We're a little bit lost."
rowenamox at 2007-04-23 23:54 (UTC) (Link)
"Stuck, yes," Eliza said, peering from around her cousin and giving Anole a slightly puzzled frown. "Lost, not so much." She looked the group over, then glanced at Karolina and Xavin. "You two know any of these guys?" she asked.

Hulkling had been eyeing the werewolf at first, but he tensed more at the sight of the Skrull. He wasn't Kl'rt, that was for sure, and there was still a mess from the last time the Young Avengers had encountered aliens.

Billy would swat him around the head if Teddy got himself kidnapped by the Skrulls again before the Kaplans had even finished their move into a new apartment.

Please, no one say anything about my parents, he prayed, glancing between Chase and Anole. Hawkeye would certainly know better than to say anything, but the other two...

((which of course is an invite))

Catching sight of the Skrull Vic gently elbowed Hulkling in the ribs. "Hey, do you know the Skrull? You know since you're half Skrull and all."

(( XD ))

Hulkling resisted the urge to clap his hand over his face.

"I was raised on Earth. Up until a few weeks ago, I thought I was human." he muttered through gritted teeth. I am so screwed.

Maybe my apperance isn't common knowledge?

So screwed.

Eliza didn’t giggle at the Teddy’s obvious discomfort, though it was tempting. Not that there was anything truly funny about it, but she had precious little to laugh about, and it was just… the look on his face…

She pressed her hand against her mouth to muffle the noise.
getaway_man at 2007-04-26 04:29 (UTC) (Link)
Chase raised his hand, more defiant and sarcastic than anything. He grinned as he looked over to Karolina who he was sure would hurt him for even joking at a time like this.

"So how exactly do a bunch of powered and non powered teenagers stand a chance against the crazy highlander? And if we beat him, am I the only one thinking thats our only way of escaping the night of the living dead?"
rowenamox at 2007-04-26 16:18 (UTC) (Link)
“The problem with that plan is he doesn’t die,” Eliza said. “Even immortals in Highlander died if you cut off their heads. He just gets back up and keeps coming. The best that can be done is beat him back for a little while and hope for rescue. I’m sure my grandmother is looking for me, if no one else, and she’s been dealing with the beast for years.”

And there’s always Davie, a traitorous part of her mind whispered. If I call him, he always comes.

But THAT was most definitely the weapon of last resort. In fact, it wasn’t really an option at all.

Karolina absently swatted at Chase's shoulder. Honestly, the Highlander?

"If we're going to beat him back, then we need to get everyone in one place," Karolina said thoughtfully. There was no question in her mind that her friends would be here, somewhere. Though she would never point it out, Chase had no powers, and here he was. Surely Nico, Victor, Molly and Gert would be even more appetizing (ugh, she shuddered just to think that word) to the Highlander. "You've said you can feel them, Eliza, but does anyone have any idea how big this place is? Like, is it its own little world, or just a fenced off area?"

She glanced at the red sky again, remembering the way it seemed to come down like a belljar. The only question was, how BIG a jar?

"As much as I would like to more about what's going we need to focus on what we need. And what we need is some shelter," Anole said, " We need a safe place to rest an wait for our rescue," he threw a glance at Eliza, "If it comes in time."
rowenamox at 2007-04-26 18:17 (UTC) (Link)
“It’s… big,” Eliza said with a shrug. “Bigger than my range, I think. I can’t really tell. It screams…” She shrank in on herself a little, refusing to look at any of them. “I’m not even sure who’s around. Just because I can hear them doesn’t mean I know them.”

She rubbed her arms and peered at the shadows like they might provide her some kind of answer, or at least a place to hide.

Cyrus made a noise somewhere back in his throat and wrapped an arm around Eliza. He couldn't do anything to help shore up her sheilds. He could tell they were failing.

At least the dead things wouldn't affect her. Presumably there were less living people than dead here.

Not that it would help, with the Beast's world surrounding them.

((Don't let the icon fool you, still in-shift))

Hulkling looked over at the dark-haired girl and knit his brows. "You okay?" He reached for her, but the wolf-man growled and he jerked his hand back "What the--"

"No toouch." the wolf-man managed. "Mrakes iiit worrse."

“Think ‘Rogue’,” Eliza clarified for Teddy. “Only without the ability to actually absorb people’s powers.” She put Cyrus firmly between her and everyone else. “We need to keep moving. There are more people out here, and we sure as all hell aren’t going to find a place to hole up just standing here.”

Kate's been quiet throughout this whole deal, listening quietly, taking everyone in.

She's usually incredibly pushy and loud and trying to get things done, but damn if this little adventure isn't too weird even for her.

And I've seen some weird things in Manhattan High Society.

"We're not going to have to get all Gilligan's Island, are we? Because while I'm a great fan of physical activity, I don't build things. That's what contractors are for."

"My vote's for shelter," Anole said. "With out shelter of some kind we're going to tire ourselves out and become easy targets."
burningpainting at 2007-05-11 17:08 (UTC) (Link)
"I'm with Spikey," Karolina said wearily. The altercation between Xavin and Eliza had been over too quickly for her to intervene...mostly because the shouting struck her head far more seriously than it should have. She was still seeing stars from all the raised voices, and the arm nearest to Xavin felt crispy from the heat. "I don't know what this place is doing to the rest of you, but that sunlight...I feel wired all wrong."

"A few hours' rest won't hurt anyone, and our friends are pretty heavy hitters themselves," she swallowed to steady her voice a little. "Anybody too macho to take a nap can stand watch for this Beast."

She didn't look at Xavin or Chase when she said it but, then, did she really need to?

Xavin changed into her female form and moved to support Karolina. "A base would be beneficial. It seems we will be here for some time." Xavin scowled as she said this. The idea of staying in this place, especially with Karolina in her weakened state, was not a pleasant thought.
rowenamox at 2007-05-13 02:48 (UTC) (Link)
Eliza shuddered, going pale as Xavin changed shape, and she took a few steps away from the Super-Skrull-in-Training. “Fine, whatever, lets just do it,” she said, hiding behind Cyrus and looking like she might just throw up at any moment.
getaway_man at 2007-05-16 03:13 (UTC) (Link)
Chase leaned against the side of the shelter they found. Still looking annoyed, he had pulled out his knife and was fiddling with it. Hoping he could talk with karolina. He missed her and knew that he could talk to her like she was a sister.
cutelizardboy at 2007-05-17 22:37 (UTC) (Link)
Anole looked from one unhappy face to the next, feeling rather cranky himself. He took a deep breath through his nose and then let out of his mouth, it didn't help that much, but it did calm his nerves a bit. "Now that we have shelter we should get some rest. How should we break up the watch? I can take frist watch if no one has any objections."
