The Blue Knight

He whirled about in his seat, summoning his sword simply out of reflex. When someone pops into a plane out of nowhere, odds are they where dangerous. The boy, covered in blue flames as usual, began to shout, not quite aware he was singing.

"What, who is this?
Blessed us with his
Presence, and he's strangely
Attuned to the situation, yet unnerving."

Violet Lear
HP: 1

Violet rose fairly early, as she usually did. Then she had breakfast and was again teased about her selection by Siege. She resolved herself to stumping him before she left the school. After eating, she went down to the gym to get a better look at the facility. Hopefully there was some kind of sports club she could join so her skills could stay sharp.

SOMEWHERE OVER GERMANY (Blue Knight, Lex, Martin; NPCs: Agent Arnett, Backlash, Elemenoh P. Quarez, Kirstie, Lillian, Mira, Roger, Stephen, Viktor)
The child-like entity appeared not to notice Blue Knight--instead marveling over the sights visible through the window. Still, he quickly recovered, mid-verse:
  • "Are we in a Boeing!?! Hey, how's it going?
    I'm the Cosmic Kender
    Who's named Elemenoh
    Common wasn't my folk's native tongue."
Just then he caught sight of Backlash's presence on the flight; his eyes bulged in surprise.
  • "It isn't good. It isn't logical.
    If we go on it's paradoxical.
    The cannon's messed up 'cause
    Tyson didn't know who I was
    At the bachelor party, in New Vindies seventy-five"


Backlash looked around in confusion.

NVAE: SUBLEVEL (Violet; NPCs: Benson, Ellen)
In the sublevel, Violet found her way to the Wreck Room. Slipping into the control room, she found one of the teachers watching over one of the students.

As the doors opened, the man turned to greet her. "You must be the new girl." From his accent, Violet marked him as an American. "I'm Mister Benson. Nice to meet you."

From the observation deck, Violet could make out a girl fencing with what appeared to be a young Mandy Patinkin.

"Welcome to the Wreck Room."

Kasimir Flaegler
HP 1 LP 2


Kasimir awakened in the morning feeling significantly less refreshed than he should have. Certainly his body was rested, but as soon as he came to consciousness, his mind started to race. After all their work the day before Astrid had a panic attack as they returned to the school. He had done his best to comfort her.

"Astrid, nobody is going to harm you. Anyone who tries will have to deal with me." Then he hugged her close and escorted her to her dorm room when they landed. He would've kissed her goodnight, but he wasn't certain he was ready for that kind of step in their relationship and he didn't want to lead her on.

Now it was morning and he stretched out, took a shower and pulled on his New Vindicators' uniform. He needed to check on Astrid and then speak to his parents. He'd "come out" as a Neo-Sapien in a pretty public way and while he was certain his parents would support his decision, it could have ramifications for his family that needed to be discussed. His stomach rumbled as he dressed. Somewhere in his busy day, he was going to have to schedule a meal or two.

Carrying his helmet casually in one hand, he made his way to Verve's room. Leaning against the door, he rapped softly. "Astrid, are you awake?"

Martin was lost.

The child next to him seemed to know things and greeted him with familiarity in the key of C minor. And, in truth, he WAS familiar.

Then the Blue Flame Guy reacted with a song that sounded like he was trying to strangle a cat with power chords, the lyrics almost intelligible with his acent and.... fervency. The Little guy responded in kind and Martin searched his eidetic memory for where he'd seen this creature. When it came to him he stood, flowing around the airplane seatbelt like it wasn't there (questioning it's entire efficacy on someone like Martin).

"Blue Knight, do not attack this new sight.
I met him in Australia
A crazy tale I'll tell ya
Just don't make this a true fight."

"So everybody calm down,
No need to make us turn 'round.
He has stuff to say
We'll let him have his day
And be rid of this new sound.


Martin says, raising his hands to placate anyone drawing weapons.

NVAE: HALLWAY (Kas; NPCs: Astrid)
"Astrid, are you awake?"

A muffled "Mmm-hmm" replied from the other side.

SOMEWHERE OVER GERMANY (Blue Knight, Lex, Martin; NPCs: Agent Arnett, Backlash, Elemenoh P. Quarez, Kirstie, Lillian, Mira, Roger, Stephen, Viktor)
Elemenoh nodded to Martin, and sang:
  • "Martin, it's time I fessed up
    about your life being messed up
    Right now, your life needs a little mending
    And musicals have a happy ending
    So if we endure this singing, everything may be okay!"

Violet Lear
HP: 1

Interested in the scene below, Violet only spared the teacher a glance. "Yes, good morning Mr Benson. I'm Violet." Pleasantries finished, she blinked a couple of times, trying to determine if her eyes were playing tricks. "Who is she sparring with?"

"Inigo Montoya," Mister Benson explained. "Ever seen The Princess Bride?

"The Wreck Room uses holographic projections to simulate almost any environment imaginable. It can also be programmed to introduce opponents, like Inigo here. If Ellen wanted, she could duke it out with Errol Flynn, Scaramouche, the Three Musketeers... Whatever you can imagine, the Wreck Room can be programmed to do."

HP: 1

Violet stared at the hologram, trying to pick out a difference that would distinguish it from the real thing. "I don't know. I can imagine a lot."She fell silent for a minute as she considerd the possibilities. She could fight a dragon alongside St George. Or help Boudica drive the Romans out of Britain. Or duel Joan of Arc.

"That's incredible."

"The incredible thing is how much we take this chamber for granted. The AI alone? Responding to our moves is maddening--factor in that it looks, sounds, smells, tastes, and feels real is wondrous."

The man grinned at her. "Wanna try it out?"

Greystone:
[Jack Rexroth]
HP: 1

The American had woken up late, one of the rare times he'd slept in since coming to the school. The good news was that he'd already showered last night given his activities so his late pretty much put him on the normal schedule of everyone else so he still managed to get his usual large breakfast from Siege - an omlette (with ham, a couple different cheeses, mushrooms, green and red peppers, spinach leaves, and diced tomatoes all stuffed inside it), several sausage links, a pile of hash browns, six pieces of buttered toast, and some pancakes covered in syrup with a couple containers of milk to wash it all down.

Needless to say it takes a bit of time for Jack to eat it all but since he was eating alone as usual it was only about twenty minutes later when he was heading down towards the Wreck Room to see what Ellen was working on. She'd said something to him about having some sword practice this morning and he wondered who'd she'd be sparring with since she was pretty much the best fencer at the school he knew of.

When he walked into the control room and saw Mr. Benson and the new girl were talking he didn't say anything to interrupt them by saying anything, though he did nod a silent greeting if either of them looked his way as he went over to the observation window to look in on Ellen's sparring session.

Violet Lear
HP: 1

"Hell yeah, I do." Violet's eyes sparkled. She looked down at Ellen again. A long, thin sword of ice formed in her right hand. She whipped it back and forth in front of her as bits of ice coverd her body, mimicking fencing gear. "Start me with a similar opponent to hers. You can make the strip interesting. I'm not tied to that straight line bit."

Testing the balance of her sword, Violet smiled in anticipation. This was going to be fun. As she approached the door, she saw Jack. She did a double take as it took her a moment to recognize him with just his human parts. He might make for a good challenge but she wanted to warm up a bit first. "Good morning, Jack." Satisfied she was ready, she pushed through the door and watched Ellen's technique while she waited for Mr Benson to get her opponent ready.

Kas's lips quirked into a little smile at Astrid's response. Somehow with her particular NS powers, he'd never envisioned her as the sort to luxuriate in being asleep. Picturing her cuddled up with her pillows and buried in a thick comforter added a new, kind of cute, side to his image of her.

"Did you want to have breakfast with me?" He asked. "I've got a busy day ahead and I thought this might be our only chance to see each other."

See each other? That sounded a little boyfriend-y and Kas wasn't sure if that was appropriate. Ah well, he couldn't un-say it so he wouldn't worry about it unless Astrid read too much into it.

"Actually," Mister Benson said, "how would you feel about a group session? The two of you and Ellen versus whatever scenario the Wreck Room and I can cook up?"

NVAE: HALLWAY (Kas; NPCs: Astrid)
"I'm not hungry," Astrid called from within.

And like that, the music ended.

Martin opened his mouth, closed it again, a little surprised, opened it once more.

"What ze 'Ell?"

"Misseur Noble? It seemed to know you; do you know anyzing more about it?"
