THE MORNING AFTER



THE MORNING AFTER (#TiD-68) unknown


SCENE SET »  SCENE SET ╗ áThe morning came just like any other but with it came news of a winged man battled a huge green reptile in the streets of Manhattan as reporters risked their lives in airing footage of the confrontation. The heroes of New York attempted to intervene only to find themselves unable to contain the two behemoth combatants. The two seemed to possess a myriad assortment of abilities and both seemed to become even more powerful when local heroes arrived.

Finally, Iron Man and Iron Spider arrived and the two heroes managed to make both Angel and Demon to flee into the city. One seemed to take to the Hudson river while the other appeared to turn into gas and disappear into the clouds.

Teddy notices while eating breakfast that his mother reacted poorly to the news. She had seen the battle of New York on television before but this seemed to hit her hard and she rewound the news over and over again seemingly fixated on the green alien. It looked a great deal like Teddy's alternate form.

Jackson saw the same newscast as his siblings noticed the Angel creature's departure looked very much like Mass' own mass shifting power. It looked just like Calvin's older self from the time nightmare that was proving to be more than a shared nightmare for the Powers children.

Multiple aka Jaime Madrox and his family were worried that Calvin was in trouble as the boy continued to suffer from a nightmare that didn't seem to end. Banshee and Moira had explained that Calvin was a mutant with the ability to copy other mutants powers and that they feared something was wrong with him.

Everyone Is in home room together except Alex. Calvin sat on a bench outside the high school; he looked worried and he was with Jaime Maddrox.


Mimic » Calvin's life had been turned upside down. He had just found out he was a mutant and worse that he could duplicate any power that he came in contact with so naturally the first power he duplicates is his new foster brother's power of duplication and his sinister doppelganger now has a body and fled the moment he could with it. He was hoping to talk to the only person he trusted the only person he had ever let his heart feel something for in his short life or long life depending on who you speak to he was either a 16 year old kid or a 35 year old Omega Class mutant.

Moira was in charge of a special division of a mutant school called the McTaggart Research Division. She was a geneticist and she handled Omega Class threats to humanity and it appeared that he was such a threat or at least was half of that threat.

Wiccan » Billy had arrived to home room along with the others, it was kind of weird, they'd been in homeroom together now for months with the exception of Teddy and Calvin, but they hadn't really taken notice of one another; Tommy might have of course, but whatever noticed he'd taken was likely quite fleeting and had to compete with that of Tommy's own reflection. As usual, Billy has saved a set for Tommy, who would likley arrive a second before the bell sounded. Billy would have preferred to sit at the head of the class, Tommy was always for the back, they'd compromised on the middle outside alse closet the door so as to allow Tommy to breeze in as late as possible.

Outside sat Calvin, Billy wondered if he had been offically enrolled or what? Everyone was suppose to attend homeroom - maybe he was going on a feildtrip? He certainly was a very handsome bit of hot mess thought Billy; Billy hoped for the best with Calvin and tried not to fear the worse. And he wondered, was the person he'd seen on the news Calvin? Teddy? Billy planned to ask as soon as he had the opportunity.

Space herpies still seemed to have an odd possiblity to it.

Mimic » Calvin had spotted BIlly and followed him into school. He had to find out if his dream was real and he had been there too. He needed answers and Billy tended to know a lot more than others realized. Calvin knew there was something special about him but up until last night it was just a hunch now it was more of a certainty.

He walked into the room and sat next to Billy with a troubled face he had always been nice to Billy so he didn't suspect any bad feelings between the two of them. He got his attention with a half forced smile and said,"Hey, I need to talk to you about last night," Calvin said in a hushed tone.

Wiccan » "Hey, I need to talk to you about last night," the words slipped from Calvin Rankin's lips in a hushed tone as he took the chair beside him; Tommy was not going to like that imagined Billy who immediately set a few of his books down in the other chair beside him so as to reserve that seat for the speedster. Still, Billy could imagine Tommy not being happy with someone sitting in 'his' chair.

Billy turned to look at Calvin, he was truly breathtaking, adorned with a carefully coif mop of brown, a beautifully semetrical face with a great smile, peircing blues and exaggerated eyebrows, and a body that seemed as if it was as broad shouldered as it was muscular; he had arms for days thought Billy. And just less then twenty-four hours ago he'd been imaginging what it might be like to have heard Calvin say such words in a hushed tone. Billy resisted bitting the inside of his lip as he looked at Calvin with a curious expression.

This could be about many many things thought Billy.

Billy glanced to the front of the room to check the wall clock before he started to reply. While his cell was likely far more accurate, teachers go by the wallclocks and if you want to avoid detention, it was best if you did too.

Billy turned back to Calvin, his lips slightly sucked in as he waited for the brunette to continue.

Mimic » Calvin was like any young man his age always worried about how people perceived him. He was attractive but because he was gay he was insecure about his looks even if someone looked at him with admiration. He noticed how Billy looked at him and how Billy looked at Teddy and it didn't make him jealous. He liked Billy and he thought his lips were pursed in such a way that begged to be kissed but as much as the fantasy of kissing him might have been appealing he didn't want to complicate his life because he also liked Teddy.

"Look, last night. I thought I had a dream but I know the difference between a dream and reality at least I thought so until this morning when I saw him on television fighting Iron man and Spider-Man; you know my older self," Calvin still couldn't believe that his foster parents had hidden the facts from him. He wasn't a kid or at least he wasn't really a kid that he had once been older and had died only to be reborn 16 years ago as a kid but that his older self was trapped in his body like some sort of cocoon and that the younger version had been that cocoon and now he was discarded and the adult one left leaving him without much thanks or even an explanation and that he couldn't trust his foster parents with the whole truth.

"I've got to talk to Teddy but he hasn't called me back and I know you live across from him. Did you see him this morning," Calvin looked nervously at his cell phone.

Chimaera » Teddy breathed a sigh of relief when he realized he was going to make it to class on time. It had been a close thing. When he'd gotten home well past any reasonable curfew last night his mother had of course been waiting up for him. For a woman who apparently had some strong opinions about how important it was for Teddy to be home and get enough sleep for his 'growing teen-aged body,' she certainly didn't seem to mind keeping him up later to emphasize it.

And things hadn't been much better in the morning. Teddy honestly didn't need nearly as much sleep as he used to, but he couldn't well tell his mother that. And more than once he'd had to all but bite his tongue when she'd started in on not keeping secrets from her when he'd gone back over to the Kaplan's house. That's right, ninja-mom was lecturing him about honesty and not keeping secrets. Regardless, it had meant he hadn't had more than a tiny bit of time to himself since last night. He'd had no chance to process everything that had happened or to figure out what he was going to do.

He wished he'd had a chance to talk to Calvin before class, but he only had a few minutes before class started at this point. He'd have to figure it out on the fly. He came around the door and into the room to some sort of theoretical exponential of awkwardness. Calvin was sitting right next to Billy, the two of them huddled together and talking quietly. He fell back to his old adage, the best way past something is through it.

Teddy walked over to grab the desk behind Calvin. It was one of the last seats available. He was glad to see that Calvin was no longer green or scaly. That was at least progress. Right?

"Hey guys," he said awkwardly. "Crazy night, huh?"

Wiccan » " Honestly. it could of been a dream, I mean we both might had had very odd dreams. Did yours involve flying? I've often heard folks refer to flying dreams as being odd. Same with the underwear dream or being caught in some movie that seques into some past memory..." Billy replied, he thought that what happened was quite real, but it all could have been a dream and they might all have had weird dreams. Circumstances. It was best to be cautious thought Billy as he preceeded onward " And then there are like dreams that are horrible nightmares or like something out of a black and white science fiction flick.. like being transported into the far future by a jerk in armor who tells you the word is in peril from not so little green men with a lot of attitude.. you know what I mean?" Billy felt he'd hidden his question quite cleverly as Teddy Altman approached and began to take a seat behind them.

They, Teddy and Calvin, regards of what was or wasn't, just by looks exchanged, clearly needed to talk thought Billy.

"Well Teddy's here, now... why don't the two of you head down to the nurses office? She doesn't get in for a while, that will give you some time to talk. Just tell her you have an upset stomach and want something to settle it... I've used that trick once or twice when I needed a moment to rest and collect myself." Billy paused, his face went slightly awkward, he'd always thought that was a smart trick, but maybe it wasn't quite so smart afterall. Who knows, whatever it was, he'd now shared the idea, and for the moment, it was helpful.

"I'll take notes for you... who said 'here' during rollcall.. school announcements... summary, lunch will have some sort of meat biproduct garnished in whatever veggies were on sale. There will be soup and salad and pudding or jello." Billy smiled, then added "Oh and pizza.. which will be really really dried out and kind of crust. But hey it's pizza... leather.. pizza."

Mimic » "Thanks Billy, you are always so nice," Calvin said and he got up to kiss Teddy. He knew if anyone could make him feel safe it was Teddy. He had really fallen for the new student. He found himself thinking of Teddy all the time and whatever was happening to him wasn't as scary if he had Teddy by his side.


"Billy suggested we go to the nurse to have some privacy to talk. I doubt we could avoid a mental institution if anyone over heard us talk about last night," Calvin said. He had an instinct that kissing Teddy made Billy slightly jealous. It was just a tingling in his mind like he was sensing each of them differently now. He was attuned to their feeling. He reached over to touch Billy's hand and he kissed him on the check and whispered that he shouldn't be jealous. He had this feeling that BIlly liked him too. He was attuned to both boys and it was making his mind a bit confused how could he know how they felt so deeply.

"Moira told me I'm a mutant...that I can be attuned to the biology of people around me up to 5 of them...she held things back from me...my whole life Is a do over..." Calvin talked to Teddy on the way to the nurse but something was causing a stir down the hall. It was a man whose outfit was deep purple and he was talking to the principal who seemed to be in a state of complete "Zombie" mode following the Principal like some puppet master. The students were telling the man with brown hair that they didn't know where Luke Harrington was or Elijah Bradley .

Teddy felt a sort of pollen in the air it clung to his nose but he sneezed and the pollen seemed to not affect him beyond a tingle in his nose. Calvin sneezed also and he seemed unaffected by the purple suited man but he answered anyway because he just hadn't seen Luke at all today or yesterday.

"Who Is that guy with the principal why Is everyone obeying him like he Is Prince Harry?" Calvin asked,"Shit Is he a Skrull?" Calvin whispered as he walked past them in the hallway. The Principal walks past them and enter their classroom.

"Ok, have any of you brats seen Luke Harrington or Elijah Bradley?" the purple suited man had an English accent and purple hued eyes and everyone was compelled to speak.

Wiccan was also one of the ones compelled to speak something forced him to speak but he didn't know where they were at and luckily nothing was accomplished except that Billy knew that the command was not just verbal something powerful was working on his body.
