Jesus Christ, what is that on the lawn?

Where are all the kids?

In the boathouse. Mr. Marko brought us here. We're all safe, don't worry. Jamie's keeping the kids calm in his special Jamie way.

Is everyone all right?

Barring potential nightmares tonight? We're fine.

What's going on? It looks like Limbo all over again, but with less fire, brimstone, and tentacle monsters.

[identity profile] x-karma.livejournal.com 2004-10-09 04:53 pm (UTC)(link)
Nightmares, huh? You and me both. And the twins, looks like -- they want to know if Miles, Leyu, and Artie are doing all right, if you can tell me? They just came and hid by my legs.

Oh, they're fine. Jamie's keeping them entertained. Tell Leong and Nga that their friends will return, unscathed, to play with them as soon as we get the all clear.

I will. Thank you very much, Shiro.

And for as long as I can hold them or until Mr. Marko says so, I have ...

well, I think they might be stone. or stucco walls. It is whatever was in Mr. Marko's book of house drawings.

I think we have an imp infestation. Maybe they are just like cockroaches for people who do magic?

Just saying I warned people about where Illyana got her power from. That _thing_ ended up bowing to her, Frenchie, from what I've heard. Makes you wonder what kind of person makes bad things scared.

Anything will bow to you if you threaten to kill it, but it will also stab you as soon as you turn your back.

I don't know you but I do not like your insinuations. I think this place is screwed up enough as it is without people claiming that there are crazy women with no morals posing as students, oui?

No wait, that's me. Except I'm not posing as anyone.

She lied. About having magic, about her teleporting, about _everything_. And now we've got demons showing up, calling her Master and going when they're told to go. I don't know about you, but I don't trust demons and I don't trust demon magic. There is something seriously wrong with Illyana and I don't care how crazy that makes me sound or how much people don't want to hear it. Just don't say I didn't tell you so the next time her 'loyal' subjects turn up and decide to snack on the little ones.

This coming from a witch. You are so kettle black my teeth hurt. And don't you dare say that you're a wytch, as if incorrect spelling makes things better. Until a couple of years ago, the world assumed that all witches were evil. Today, half the world still thinks all mutants are evil. Maybe tomorrow, you will grow up and realise that not all demons are going to eat little Hansel and Gretel.

Oh, wait. That was a witch, wasn't it?

Maybe she had every reason to lie if mutinous little girls like you are running around the place.

Demons. Are. Evil. There's no such fucking thing as a good demon. They're not victims of fucking prejudice, they are evil incarnate and I don't care how fucking crazy you are, you have no fucking idea what you're talking about.

And for your information, I was one of the peopel who went in after her, trying to get her out. Nearly blew the top of me head off into the bargain. I saw that place, tasted its power, and if her magic comes from there, then goddess help us all.


[identity profile] x-jubilee.livejournal.com 2004-10-09 10:36 pm (UTC)(link)
I don't give a God damn where her magic comes from. She's my friend. And that's all I need to know. You say she lied to you? I don't know about that. Guess I'm going to have to ask her.
xp_daytripper: (don't talk to me)

Re: Honestly?

[personal profile] xp_daytripper 2004-10-09 11:02 pm (UTC)(link)
So you're just going to ignore the fact she quite happily gave Big and Ugly his freedom and sent him on his way? The apparently demons find her scary? And you were the one who was complaining about being kept in the dark.

Fine, let her keep her fucking secrets. Just don't come crying to me to save your bloody arse from the demon hoardes of Limbo again.

Re: Honestly?

[identity profile] x-jubilee.livejournal.com 2004-10-10 02:40 am (UTC)(link)
She's never given me any reason to think she's a threat and every reason to give her the benefit of the doubt.

I'm not ignoring anything. Merely reserving judgement till I talk to her myself. I don't tend to make up my mind based on rumor and other people's opinions.

And I think I can take care of myself. Don't need you to save me, thanks very much.

Re: Honestly?

I don't tend to make up my mind based on rumor and other people's opinions.

Oh, you don't? News to me, Jubilee, or have you forgotten a certain conversation we had in medlab?

Seems to me what you mean is you don't make up your mind about people you already like, based on rumor and other people's opinions. Hypocrite.

Re: Honestly?

[identity profile] x-jubilee.livejournal.com 2004-10-10 10:53 pm (UTC)(link)
So, what you're telling me is that my opinion has to coincide with everyone else's, otherwise I'm being a hypocrite.

And I haven't forgotten. Could it be that I might actually have learnt something from that experience? But I guess you can't credit me with that, can you, Angelo? You'd much rather just call me a hyprocrite because I don't jump on the 'Let's condemn Illyana band wagon.'

Re: Honestly?

[identity profile] x-skin.livejournal.com 2004-10-11 12:25 am (UTC)(link)
No. Nuh-uh. Go ahead and make up your mind based on what you know of Illyana - that's exactly what I'm doing, after all, that and what I saw on the lawn the other day.

And you didn't say, "I don't make up my mind any more based on rumor and other people's opinions". You made it sound like you never have, and we both know that isn't true. And the way I see it, you were trying to imply that Amanda does. Which, well... if you were in Limbo, you should know where she's coming from on this, even if you don't agree with it. And if you weren't, when was the last time you had anything to do with a demon?

Re: Honestly?

[identity profile] x-jubilee.livejournal.com 2004-10-11 12:50 am (UTC)(link)
I was in Limbo, Angelo. The scar I have on my face, that's from Limbo. Ain't much to look at now but it wasn't exactly pretty for the first few months afterwards. Just goes to show how good the doctors are here that it wasn't more ugly.

And it's been a long night. I'm not exactly being coherent. Just don't like people taking pot shots at one of my best friends when they can't defend themselves is all. And she is my friend, Angelo. She's never given up on me, why the hell should I give up on her? Even if it turns out that she knew all about this. I'm still not going to give up on her. Cause I know she'd be right there with me if it were me.

Re: Honestly?

[identity profile] x-skin.livejournal.com 2004-10-11 02:47 am (UTC)(link)
And nor do I like people taking pot shots at my best friends when they run into demons (with, I will point out again, very good reasons to be terrified of them) and post about their doubts and fears connected with it. Amanda never said anything about kicking Illyana out, let alone doing anything worse to her, she just raised some questions that should be taken to Illyana when she's fit for it.

I'm sorry I lost it. It's just been one thing after another this last few days, and I was getting a bit frayed at the edges. Amazing what a night away can do for you - I just hope it lasts.

Re: Honestly?

[identity profile] x-jubilee.livejournal.com 2004-10-11 04:33 am (UTC)(link)
*smiles wryly* Well, it's not a bad thing that we're both sticking up for friends. How bout we call this a night, hey? I think I may go see Kurt and find out if he's willing to train. Better then waiting around, worrying about everything.

Re: Honestly?

[identity profile] x-skin.livejournal.com 2004-10-11 04:43 am (UTC)(link)
Works for me. Jesus, if this keeps up I might have to think about moving back in with my mom and just coming here for classes. Not that that'd help much with the worry, I'd still know when there was a crisis on...

Re: Honestly?

[identity profile] x-jubilee.livejournal.com 2004-10-11 04:52 am (UTC)(link)
Dude, life is a crisis. No matter where we are, we're always gonna have something going on. I mean, neither of us have had exactly quiet lives before this.

It's funny, when I left 'Yana came looking for me. Now, it's for her and Kitty and people like them that I stay. I couldn't leave them to face any of this shit alone, even if I can't always help directly.

I never thought I'd see the day when I cared so damn much for people other then myself. It's scary.

Re: Honestly?

[identity profile] x-skin.livejournal.com 2004-10-11 04:57 am (UTC)(link)
Ain't that the truth. D'you think we attract trouble, or something?

Right now? I'm staying here for Paige and Amanda. Nathan, too, but he can look after himself. A few days ago, I'd've said Kitty as well, but I'm not sure she wants to know me right now.

Oh, I always cared, except for the time between when I manifested and when I came here. Too much, maybe - this ain't the first time it's backfired on me.

[identity profile] x-juggernaut.livejournal.com 2004-10-09 04:51 pm (UTC)(link)
We're fine here. I've got Miles, Leyu and Shiro, Doug and Angie, and Wanda's with the others in the main room. We're barricaded in here good in case something else comes out. Have someone call my cell with the all-clear when you guys get the situation under control.

[identity profile] x-karma.livejournal.com 2004-10-09 05:05 pm (UTC)(link)
Shall do. Things seem to be calming down out there (not that I'm going to go check -- did anyone else feel those things?).

[identity profile] x-scarletwitch.livejournal.com 2004-10-09 05:07 pm (UTC)(link)
Like Cain said, I have some with me. It is a good thing children find my stories entertaining, they are more interested in them than outside.

[identity profile] x-reyes.livejournal.com 2004-10-09 05:36 pm (UTC)(link)
You don't mind if I just come hide with you for a while, right? Please?

[identity profile] x-karma.livejournal.com 2004-10-09 05:38 pm (UTC)(link)
Not at all. In fact... please do.

Merde. Whatever those things were, they were...

[identity profile] x-reyes.livejournal.com 2004-10-09 05:44 pm (UTC)(link)
Right. I will be there just as soon as I remember how to make my legs work. Fingers for typing, I can do easy. (I'm not hurt or anything, before you worry, I promise.)

Give me a ride to church tomorrow?

[identity profile] x-karma.livejournal.com 2004-10-09 06:06 pm (UTC)(link)
Things seem all right now -- I think we're safe. Hope you're up to it soon.

I'll give you a ride there if you can find one back. Don't do church, myself.

[identity profile] x-reyes.livejournal.com 2004-10-09 06:13 pm (UTC)(link)
I have progressed from 'huddled in the corner' to 'standing in the corner'. I should be there in a minute or two.

I don't really do it anymore, myself, but.. mmnh. Nevermind. I'll be there in a minute.

[identity profile] x-blink.livejournal.com 2004-10-09 06:48 pm (UTC)(link)
I can relay stuff if needed.
