Aberrant: Weirder Stuff this is an Aberrant game using an original setting.

In Aberrant: Weirder Stuff (henceforth AWS) you will play a Quantum Enhanced Human who must decide how to live with your new found powers and what role you will play in the coming world upheaval. It is a modern setting/Supers/Scifi/Weird Adventure which will run in a concurrent time line to our own reality. Focus will be Character Drama, Us against them, facing the Unknown, and Action. Oh and there may be sex.

The game will begin, but not be restricted to, a small town in Montana. The town is a Fictionalized version of Shelly Montana ( based on the town of Shelby  http://www.city-data.com/city/Shelby-Montana.html ). The general public are not aware of Quantum Enhanced Humans (Novas in base aberrant), although if your a nerd and google every weird thing in the world (I'm not saying it's aliens … but it's aliens) there are stories of... well weird shit happening, some of which are true.

Enhanced Humans first began manifesting about 10-15 years ago, although these early manifestations were primarily low level mega stat recipients and went undetected by even those who manifested. Over the intervening years more low level manifestations have occurred and were first discovered by the government agency responsible for creating them (unknowingly, more on that later). This discovery took place about 5 years ago . The exact cause of the manifestation of super normal abilities is not yet known but there are theories. There are few QEHs (Quantum Enhanced Humans) in existence all of which are from the united states and all who manifested in one of 3 locations and all of which are government employees. These couple of dozen or so QEHs possess powers that range from low level mega stats (1 -2 dot) to low level provable psychic abilities such as telepathy, esp, etc. The government is unaware of any massive super powered people and in fact there have been no such manifestations. Until now.

  1. Yesterday
  2. Lilly was confused somewhat by Devin's admission. 'WTF? Protect ME? He's worried about protecting ME?' she thought to herself, but the though quickly faded from her mind as her father finally spoke, snapping her back to the moment. 'Whatever. He's just angsty.' she thought and shrugged it off. Seconds later, it seemed, they were in China, looking at the disk and drones around it. < At Bunnee's some of the wolves seemed to notice when we started using our powers. I'll bet similar ones are here too. They might know we are here already, but hopefully we are far enough away to escape their detection. They might detect me when I turn on the juice, if they have not already. I can clear that with a jump, so if anybody needs a ride and think they can take the hell that will be unleashed on me or us, then let me know. I am thinking I jump in, and then it's "Lilly Smash!" time on that frame? I'll probably draw a lot, if not all, of their fire. So, you know, diversions could help. Heh. > < Or do we need the frame to send our bomb though, if we even have a bomb? And considering the backlash I got as the mere suggestion that I would be okay sacraficie myself, if absolutely needed, I doubt that blowing yourself up is a viable option, Sara. I dunno. > she though over Guild Chat.
  3. “If you ki..guys are finished,” Col. Pryor's voice cut through and got their attention “We have imagery coming in from China.” On the big screen the picture showed China then began zoom into the north target area. The could see hundreds of small bug Aliens erecting some kind of frame work around a huge black disc. They are being watched of by about two dozen of the Infantry drones and a score of wolf-Howlers. “Zero emissions from the disc sir.” reported an airman. “How the hell did so many get here without us detecting them” “You did detect them,” said Abel. “those other times you picked up the portals some aliens came through and hid right under our eyes. Those workers are purpose built probably using material from the countryside.” “The framework is a power station for the nexus portal and it looks like they are almost finished.” interjected Sean. “Your authorized to go, do what ever you need to do, but stop them.” was all Pryor said. They had quickly changed into their PAM Suits, those that hadn't been wearing them already and were gathered in an adjacent room. “How much time do we have?” asks Sara. “ A few minutes still but we should get there and position ourselves.” Abel said as he took Kia's hand in his. Devin tossed his empty cup in the trash. “They didn't start the invasion until they secured their base with those big tank like aliens and thy were bringign those through portals. We are going to need one of those Portals to get us to the other side unless that big one is a portal too.” He looked around at everyone. “You guys ready?” Nods followed and then they were in China.
  4. Last week
  5. Sean and Lilly said their piece. Jaunt approached the table with a lame-sized white styrofoam cup filled with hot chocolate. Sean quirked an eyebrow at him. "What? I heard her, half that speech was in my head, I do teleport and multitask y'know. Saves all kinds of time." They all looked at him as he took a sip, waiting expectantly. "Okay, fine, I got pissed. I just abandoned my wife of forty three years up on an alien space ship. I'm having a bit of a hard time processing, okay? Real talk, I'm not sure what's live or Memorex anymore." "I was dick, Lills, and I'm sssor-... that word," He looked at her across the table. A pang of remembrance twisted his gut as he remembered the picture of his family aboard the vessel where he met future Laurie. Three children, two daughters and a son. His mind wrapped around memories that weren't his, flashes of events that hadn't happened yet. People who'd been in and out o his life. His son, he knew, wasn't with Laurie. His son came from a different mother, and she was at the table with him now. He swallowed it back and let the topic in his mind rest. No one needed to know, not right now anyway. "We've all seen some shit, no denying that, I'm just... just not cool with the clone army thing... don't ask me why... it's like onions, I don't know why, I just don't like em'." He sighed, still trying to get it together. Whatever he'd seen in the future had whammied the hell out of him. "Look the truth is, when all your clones are in play, I can't lock on to you to pull you out. They act like... I dunno white noise for the real you... same with Kia, it blocks my blinking you out of danger. I don't want you anywhere or doing anything where I can't protect you." There is was, that charm he seemed to have from time to time. It shown through with his last few words and they saw in his his genuine concern for Lill-...all of them. "I'm not sorry for the last bit though, seriously, break stuff. Break lots of their stuff." He managed a smirk and shot her a wink that fell short of distracting them away from his display of concern.
  6. Sara stepped up and resisting the urge to grab and hold Sean nodded, both to what Sean had said and what Lilly was saying (although there was a little smile when Lilly said she didn't create her 'duplicates' frivolously. "Agreed, and If Laurie can't get a bomb from the new aliens. I can be the bomb. I just need to know where to blow up."
  7. "Well, not to get all philosophical here, but some of this might help with coming up with a plan...." Lilly said as she took in a breath and tried to organize her thoughts on her self-duplication ability. "For starters, 'Clone' is not the right word, since clones are only genetically identical. They are actual duplicates. They are not pulled from other realities either. It's like I focus and I know every cell in my body and the position and movement of every particle or whatever, in and on, my body, and then create a new one, like even to the level that I duplicate my consciousness, even if doing so is paradoxical or whatever. As best I can describe it is that it feels like it's kind of like an extension of my regeneration, body control and juicing. Like, I cannot turn into a bird like Kia can, but I know my body really, really well and have this crazy control over it." she said as she held up a hand, closed her fingers and then opened them again, revealing webbing. "Anyways, they are all me. Like, ME, me. They know only and exactly what I know. They have the same thoughts, fears and everything. If I have a wound or sore muscle or scar or anything, so do they. They wear, and hold, and have in their pockets exactly what I have. < Whatever I am wearing or holding something, or have it on me, and it is not too big, it is duplicated too. Like when I duplicated at the battle at Bunnee's, the Vanguard all had my bow, arrows and even PAM suit, and the duplicate's PAM suits also had juice stored in them, identical to mine, which might defy the Law of Conservation of Energy, or something. > < The only difference between me and them is that they cannot duplicate themselves, so they know they are duplicates, at least on a logical level. It's like something they know, but do not really think about or focus on. I know that, because I can re-integrate them and then I know everything they know and experienced, as if I were the one doing it, because I kinda was. > < Well that, and that they, and everything created with them, are temporary. > "I do not control them either. They are me in every respect. They talk, think, act and react identical to me and would do what I would do in any situation. And they also would not do anything I would not do myself, because they are me. I mean, it's like since they know they duplicates, they are more willing to take risks if it means helping and protecting others. Because, like, if I was going to cease to exist in under an hour, then I would want my existence to mean something, you know? But they are not just a disposable army or something that I can send to their doom. If I wouldn't do something in that situation, then neither would they. But by that same token, if I am willing to take the risk, knowingly, sacrifice myself, then so are they, because they are me." < And they are in Guild Chat, because I am and they are duplicates of me. So we use Guild Chat, or make link ourselves, to communicate. > "It's kind of trippy, I know, and also why I do not create them frivolously." < I have had the ability for some time, but just never used it because I never felt it was needed until a half dozen of us were staring at hundreds of aliens in downtown Shelly. I wasn't trying to hide it. I just... I'm still getting used to it. > Lilly then looks at the other Irregulars for a moment and nodded to Sean. "And a team is always greater than the sum of its parts. That's why we are the Irregulars and not a bunch of lone wolves." she said, showing the Irregulars patch on her arm. "I mean, look at what we did at Bunnee's against hundreds of aliens and, like, kaiju." she reminded. "As long as we work together as a team, and have each other's back, we can do amazing things." she said as she bent her arm and held it out, showing the "Irregulars" patch on the arm.
  8. <Well, since Jaunt was able to send Laurie up instead of us needing to lure the T'tauri down,> Sean commented directly to Abel, making a gesture down low with two fingers pointing upwards towards the sky and beyond, <it's a moot point now. It wasn't a preference, just an option we had to consider with what we knew and the time we have at hand.> Sean took several long steps to join Devin at the door, leaning back against the door jamb and holding up a placating hand. The look in her eyes was sympathetic, even agreeing with his sentiments to at least some degree, but also understanding there wasn't time for them to let disagreements distract them. "I don't see you as just a rather convenient Uber, Devin." Sean's tone was sweet and convincing, but it sounded genuine. She could have just been sweet talking him of course, but she had heard every word between him and her sister. Sean worried about her sister and truly hoped that she wasn't involving herself in this affair just because she felt overshadowed by her brother-now-sister. She didn't believe Laurie was - she was remarkably self-aware and if she didn't know what her place in the world was, there was no doubt she would find it. Devin's concern for Laurie was obvious, but what impressed Sean the most was him letting Laurie make her proposal, her decision, then helping her to make it happen, despite it being the last thing he wanted to do. It was one of the hardest things to do - she knew, she had done the same. "We all have something to contribute here," Sean stated, standing up straight and raising her voice for everyone to hear. "Lilly, your idea isn't a bad one, but so far, the Asheen have been a step ahead of us, and nothing we've seen suggests they are less than clever. They simply have more experience with this quality and quantity of power. If they have a way to negate one of your clones, they can negate all of them. We all bring something to the table, and in combination, we have such versatility and capability, the Asheen can't counter them all, raising our probability of success." Sean arched a beseeching brow at Devin. <You believed enough in Laurie to send her up there, the least we can do is make sure the effort isn't wasted, dude. Please?> Sean slipped around Jaunt and approached Lilly. "I don't know the exact mechanism of your self-duplication ability, Lilly," Sean admitted, "but they seem to be you in all respects, including mannerisms and personality." <We can hear them all in Guildchat, and I presume you can communicate directly with them as well,> Sean added on a personal channel to Lilly. "Don't know if you draw them in from mirror realities or create them wholecloth from subatomic particles, but I also don't know if your clones are aware of their limited existence. If they are you, I was supposing they still had a self-preservation instinct and didn't believe it was fair to them, or to you, to have a plan sacrificing them if it wasn't necessary, especially if you would end up experiencing that sacrifice." Sean quirked her lips wryly. "Nor do I think it is the best plan. Forgive me the pun, but consider Legos. You can make something using the same 'brick' over and over again, but you can make something greater using a variety of pieces." Sean turned, catching each of the Irregulars' eyes. "And together, we a greater than the sum of our parts. We can do this, ladies and gentlemen, I know we can, working together. Agreed?"
  9. Abel sat their mutely running over everything he knew, all he could remember. <First thing to consider, we have no idea if the clones would maintain cohesion after going through the portal. It's something we've simply not tested. Second, even if all we did was send the clones over, there's no real way of knowing if we can do enough damage to shut them down until we can come up with a more permanent solution. > He looked to Sara "As big as you can make it. We can't take any chances with half measures." Looking to Sean, he spoke privately over their mental link. <Are you really about to suggest that I do something like what I did before? I know what I did when I tried to guide Clare's enhancement, and she manifested abilities I never intended to give her. We have exactly 3 choices in people here that I might do that to, and if something were to go wrong, again, could you really be okay with it?> Even as he was talking to Sean, he quickly brought Blitz up to speed, and sighed. <Any advice on this Blitz? no mention of these aliens as allies of the ones who took you and way to get ahold of them?> Blitz was quick to answer. <Nothing like that, but if you're going to try to blast them, nny blast should be held off until the invasion actually starts. If the nexus portal acts as I think it does, it is a junction which all the other staging areas shunt through. if this is the case those portals will shunt the explosion's energies back along those portal lines to the individual staging areas, doing the maximum amount of damage to all of them.>
  10. "Why are the rest of us even here," Jaunt asked, returning from his dark corner, minus Laurie. He was a little miffed at what he'd just done so it was a perfect time to be an asshole. "I mean really. Lilly and Kia can make a clone army of jack-booted thugs on demand now and don't even need to be on site to do it, they can be blocks away sipping Mai-ti's. Just send in the clones, pin a medal on Lilly's chest and let's just get this over with. We don't need a plan if all we're gonna do is make the Vangard and bum rush em... you punch anything enough times it'll quit moving." "Christ, man, we are the laziest supers ever, and I got a comic book collection at home to prove it. You don't need me here, I'm not pulling clones out of a fire, screw that. It's a complete waste of my juice and time." He pulled up the jacket to his suit and straightened it so it rested better on his chest. "Hit me up when I'm actually on this team and not the personal army's gopher. I'mna go see if this base has any decent hot chocolate. Good luck Lills, save the day, break lots of things." Devin walked to the door, stopping to ask an Airman where the break room or mess was.
  11. Kia shrugged. <That's kind of his thing. I thought it was a good idea though. And we don't need his permission to do it, really.>
  12. "Who said anything about it being predicated on self-sacrifice? I know I sure as heck didn't. I only said that I would go IF the horde of Vanguard and possibly Chimera duplicates could not do it on their own for whatever reason, which I cannot even fathom." Lilly clarified since her first statement seemed to have shot right over heads. < Did Sean just insinuate we were just dumb muscle? > Lilly mused to Kia in a private link.
  13. "Done? Done?! I wasn't even aware we'd started! Y-y'know what... can all you excuse us for a second?" He points to a dark corner that looked like it might the typical CW drama spot for 'talks'. He took her by the arm and lead her off to the side. "Laurie, you can't come. I'm sorry, but you are a civilian and I'm not shooting you up into space. You don't have some super suit to protect you from spinal injuries and telekinetic explosions this time around. It's too dangerous." "Yes it is," She replied taking his hands in hers, "and its just as dangerous for you and everyone else. When we didn't go to China I went there. If there was any purpose for anyof this, then there had to be a purpose for that too. And I am not letting you go alone." She steps close to him pressing her body against his. "We don't have time to waste for this we need to go right now and get the help we need before it's too late." Devin sighed, squeezing her hands in a display of affection unaccustomed to him. "Laurie.... what you're asking me to do. Were something to happen to you, I'd have to come back here and look Sean in the eyes and tell him that I lost his sister. I'm not super dense like Lilly or strong. I don't have Kia's mutability, although I'm totally hotter than your sister and I'm not quite sure what Abel does... my point is, without that suit the last time, you would have been dead ten times over. I can't protect you," Admitting one's weaknesses had never been an easy task and Devin was certainly learning now the humility in it all. "Were something to happen to you Red... I...," He gently swept away the rogue strand of red that had fallen from her styled hair, just like it did the first time they went to the Winter Ball. After it was safely tucked behind he ear he let his hand slide along the soft curves of her cheek. "I couldn't live with myself." Laurie leaned into his caress her heart pounding. "Devin you don't have time. I have to go because you have to come back here and get everyone to China. I'll get the bomb Ill get it to you in China." She pulled back and looked Devin square in the eye "Now quit arguing with me Jaunt, and teleport . Now!" He closed his eyes. More to keep back the rush of emotion he was feeling and how awkward this new sensation was. She was right, and he hated it. He used it as a moment of solace to build up the energy he would need. He pictured the observation deck, he called for the memory and after a few moments they were there... Laurie stepped away from him and looked around. The scenery was no less amazing the second time around. "Jaunt, thank you." His back was already to her so she couldn't see how he looked: irritated, mad, scared. "You better come home. You owe me a bomb." His form broke down and Jaunt shifted into pure quantum and was gone.
  14. Sara squeezes Seans hand then steps forward giving Laurie and devin a smile. "How big of an explosion do we need?" she asks Abel
  15. "Hey asswipe, while you and the rest of your super-friends were off playing with yourselves in your heads, or whatever. I was up there making peace with a freaking bunch of Aliens on a star destroyer. I know them, butthead," She pokes Devin hard in the chest, "you don't." She folds her arms across her chest, "So I go or we are done."
  16. "Yeah, sure, of course I am," Jaunt smiled at her sarcastically. "Go play with your dolls, sweetie, Daddy's gotta save the world." He shot her a wink and a nod for her to go elsewhere.
  17. "You got this Devin, but your taking me with you." Laurie said as she planted her hands on her hips.
  18. "Ping these nuts, Cassidy," Jaunt said, grabbing himself. "How about I just jaunt up there and say hello. I've already been on their ship, I remember the observation deck, it'll be difficult but I'm pretty sure I could make it." "Devin, that's in orbit," Abel cut him off. "You've never attempted a jaunt that far." "Aww, he cares. I love you Schmoopsy Poo." Jaunt blew Able a kiss, and continued. "...and he's right, but what choice do we have? Some off chance you might get their attention? There's too much uncertainty in that plan, dude. With you guys handling boots on ground problems, someone needs to handle the Tutorial." "T'Tauri." Laurie corrected him. "They're called the T'Tauri... you said...," She patted him on the shoulder. "Y'know what? You got this." Devin nodded with confidence. "S'what I said, I totally got this."
  19. "Hmmm..." Sean mused, idly looking up, through the ceiling and into the sky, in the off chance she could discern the alien craft. "While we will need to take to the offense, we're also going to need allies, serious ones. The Asheen, and the ones behind them Blitz mentioned, are interplanetary, or even galactic empires. Taking out an entire invasion force still won't impact their resources enough to stop them. We need to make the idea of an invasion too costly for them to contemplate." Sean nodded at Sara as she removed her heels and formed her dress - actually her PAM suit - into a fitted, tactical body suit that looked more like something from a Marvel movie. Her luxuriously styled hair shifted back to her regular, shorter punky look with one said razor-cut short. "Stopping the invasion won't stop them, but it will buy us time for find a more permanent solution." She glanced over at Lilly. "And I agree with your father - a plan predicated on self-sacrifice isn't the best plan. We'll need brains on site to figure out the best of action and where to strike, absent a detailed idea of what we'll find." Sean indicated herself, Abel, and Alec, then Lilly, Kia, and Sara, "Muscle and Firepower to hold them off." Sean gestured around the group again, but with a slight emphasis on Kia and Abel. "Versatility for anything else that comes up. And of course," Sean gestured at Devin in a manner mirroring Laurie earlier, "one of the most important things, a way to get out." Sean lips tightened as she continued, her gaze lingering on her sister, then going to Abel. "As for contacting the T'Tauri, well, unless we can ping them with satellites we already have up there, we have to do something down here that will draw their attention enough to investigate, like what happened before. So, either using one of the portal devices to spew out enough quantrinos to make seem like an enhancement in progress, or..."
  20. "I'm her sister," Laurie said, gesturing at the still glamorously attired Sean like a game show hostess, "Laurie. Don't you see the resemblance? And the aliens I'm talking about our the T'Tauri, the ones that abducted me, Devin, and Clare just before the invasion." "Abducted?" Pryor growled questioningly. Laurie rolled her eyes on teenaged insouciance. "It wasn't their fault, really." "Not their 'fault'?" the Colonel reiterated with skeptically lowered brows. "They weren't sure if we were... uh, complicit with the Asheen and wanted some of us to study. But when we all ported to China and everyone went... wherever they had gone, they managed to snag me up. They realized we weren't allies and were planning to come in and save as many of us as they could." Laurie wrinkled her nose cutely, remembering. "Funny guys, but I liked them. Sean, you will just love their magic underwear." And so will every guy who sees you in it. "They said their ship wasn't enough to stop the Asheen, but they were still willing to fly and save who they could. But with their tech, I bet we can put the hurt on the Asheen. We just need a way to contact them first."
  21. "No!" Pryor all but shouted at his daughter, "absolutely not, and even if I would allow you, any of you to do anything like that, I don't have a nuke and theres no way to get one in twenty minutes." "Sorry to interrupt,' Laurie stepped up and put her hand on Jaunt's shoulder, "The T''Tauri have bombs and energy weapons like you wouldn't imagine, right out of Star Trek. And if we're back before we got kidnapped that means they are right up there right now invisible." Pryor looked at Laurie "I'm sorry who are you? And what aliens are you talking about?"
  22. "You mean like.. I dunno... a half dozen juiced up Vanguards protecting and escorting another Vanguard with the bomb? Possibly even guarded by another half dozen or so Chimeras to boot? And all while we we are on our side of the portal too and not even risking ourselves?" Lilly said to Devin. "Heck, if the device is small enough, I can probably duplicate it too so all of the Vanguards might be able to carry one, in which case only one has to make it across the goal line." she added. "But if it absolutely required one or more of us going too and sacrificing ourselves in order to save the planet and end the Asheen threat once and for all, I think I'd be willing to make that sacrifice." Lilly offered, trying to avoid looking at her father because she was not sure how he would take his only child potentially offering to sacrifice herself for the good of the planet. "I mean, let's hope that's not needed. And, like, I REALLY hope it's not, but if it is, I think I'd been good with it." "And yeah, with how I feel now after out cross-time/dimension escaped, I think on a good day, or if I am not right at Ground Zero, I am pretty sure I could withstand a nuke. I would be hurting, don't get me wrong, but I might be able to survive it. Or at least I am fairly certain I have the best chance out of any of us at least." she added
  23. "We'd need some way to deliver the payload," Jaunt chimed up. "Someone would need to go through the portal and place the bomb. Unless we are one hundred percent certain they can't withstand a nuclear explosion on a mission specific subsystem like the portal. We need to drop the entire thing, not just the portal. These guys have spaceships and lasers and mutant monsters... dude, we can't just softball pitch nukes and hope for the best. I'm not co-signing an idea like that bro, unless we're certain."
  24. "What's the biggest Nuke you guys can lay hands on in twenty minutes?" He sighed. "Or you know a secret antimatter weapon of some sort." He really wasn't joking. "While we can destroy this side of the gate with a surgical strike, we need something more to take the fight to them. We have to destroy their ability to wage war entirely, and We're going to need more destructive power than we can muster right now." He knew what blitz had said, using antimatter weapons to destroy them on the other side of the gate, it had the scent of Pacific Rim to him, but at the same time, he'd much rather unleash that sort of firepower on the other side of the gate than anywhere near earth.
  25. The Irregulars exit the Ball before they are even there real which makes everyone shocked no less so than Courtney whose limo is pulling up as the irregulars' are leaving. In a huff she exits her limo still dormed and grabs the first kid she sees demanding and explanation. "I don't know they drove up got out and then got back in and left. Man you should have seen Sean and Sara and Kia and Abel man they were styling" You could hear Courtney's teeth grinding a mile away..... The drove to the diner and parked, the snow started falling rapidly. they parked and jaunt ported the whole lot of them to the base. Sean, Abel and Alec all with perfect memories could consulted and came up with a time line of the events. The were exactly thirty minutes from when Abel had Enhanced Clare, two minutes after that Jaunt, Laurie and Clare teleported to Bunnies and were kidnapped two minutes later. Then the satellites were taken out and the invasion began two minutes later. Everyone in the command center stood or sat slack jawed as the entire Irregulars team appeared in their midst Laurie ushered Talena and Sandy off to the side as Abel explained what was about to happen to Col. Pryor. "If you can hit the big grand central portal and take it out we stop the invasion cold." said Pryor turning to the big wall screen now showing the area "i want full coverage and live pictures now!" Sara stepped forward. "No, it won't stop the invasion just slow it. We have to take the fight to them."
  26. <Did... you just abbreviate 'as soon as fucking possible' in my head? I hate guild chat, it too weird. Look, I guarantee that I will poke and prod Taleena as much as you like as soon as we save the world, kay? I will make that sacrifice you Lilly, because you're special. I swear it has nothing to do with Taleena being a hottie... but you're right, we gots ta be outtie...> Devin slid into the limo and his quantum particles sidestepped intervening space. He appeared in their section of the base, the place where the Irregulars usually worked out of (he'd never really bothered to learn the name of it). Lt. Col Pryor was there with a few other Airmen going over information and a small evening workload. He paused for a second, amazed at how easily he managed that jaunt... it felt like he took a step, not took a leap. Woah. "Yo' whud up El Tee Cole!" He shouted his greeting and about scared half the room. Pryor simply closed his eyes and wondered to God in Heaven what he did to deserve Jaunt on tonight of all nights. "It's Colonel now, jackass," He corrected the teen swiftly. "And why are you here? I thought you and the others were at the Winter Ball." "Eh, same thing. They are incoming as soon as Lilly can stop mentally spamming guild chat with all her neurosis and conspiracy theories. Sean will explain it all, she gets antsy if she doesn't get to sound smart every twenty seconds or so," He smiled brightly, lighting up the room. <Aight peeps, we ready to do this? Gimme the go ahead and you're as good as here>
  27. Earlier
  28. < SOMETHING is up with them. I don't know if it is good, bad or harmless, but SOMETHING is there. > she thought to the other adamantly. < Like remember the day on the practice field when we found that virus thing in all the kids who were at the lake the night we Enhanced?? She knew the question Alec was THINKING and answered, saying "Raven" told her that we would be looking for Michelle Flaherty and that she lived in a blue double-wide at Horizon Trailer Park? And when asked, like, 1 second later if "Raven" had told her anything else, she was all, "Raven? What rave? I didn't say anything about a raven?" We all lat it go because we had to get to lake to take care of the 'displacer beast'. Remember THAT? Why did she say that? Who the hell is "Raven"? And why couldn't she remember saying it? SOMETHING was and most likely IS up with her. > she reminded. < That day, when I kissed Sandy, he said that he could not get me out of his head. And he was not just being flattering. He said that every since the night at the lake when we Enhanced his head was screwed up and he couldn't get me out of his head. He said he had dreams about me, and not like the dreams a guy normally has about a girl. He was discombobulated, sweating and even afraid. Like, actual fear. When I kissed him, I had that vision and tasted ash on my lips and everything, but he didn't experience it. When we broke the kiss it was like he was entranced. He said it was like he had been underwater and with the kiss he finally broke the surface, and he wasn't just being poetic. > she explained through the mental network they shared, adding in the visions she had of his body turning to ash and blowing away along with the rest of the vision. < Maybe he was being pushed somehow to get in with me, and thereby us, or he or they were being used for recon, like seeing through their eyes or possessing them or something. I dunno, but I am TELLING YOU that SOMETHING is up with them. > she reiterated, fully adamant. < I don't want to say anything to them, or at least him, right now, because I do not want to spook them if they are being used somehow and I do not want to tip them off that we are onto them or the people using them or whatever. Best not to tip our hand yet. I dunno what to say to them or do. I mean, I do not want them getting hurt if they are innocent and the Asheen are about to show up. Speaking of which, we need to call my dad and get to the base ASAFP. > "I mean, what really makes a party? Is is it the place? No. It's the people. The atmosphere. So we can have our party anywhere, and probably with better music too." she said, with smile that she tried to to not make look forced as she walked with Sandy along with the others.
