Current plot
Many years ago Xavier's school for gifted mutants was attacked. It was left in ruin. Teachers and students abandoned it with no hope of returning to it for sanctuary...

Years later a professor named Jason Andrews returned life to the school's halls and rebuilt its walls. Students have once again come to learn at the school in safety.

Many other mutants aren't quite so lucky. Some still remain hidden in the shadows and some within factions like the brotherhood are left leaderless.

Before Gavin finished the sentance, a sound like thousands of papers tearing at once ripped through the air. The dislodged section of flooring flew as if it were fired out of a cannon, becoming a nondescript blur.
It looked as if the attack would follow through; then the Sentinel turned to the side as it fell, putting its shoulder into the drop and moving just enough for the peice of metal and concrete to narrowly miss it.
As the giant crashed into the building it had formerly been holding onto for support, the structure buckled.
Dust and debris showered the area. The low buzzing noise steadily grew, then the Sentinel opened its mouth and blasted them with a roar that echoed for dozens of city blocks.

"What the-- !?!"
Appearing all of a sudden in midair at fifteen feet above, Kas barely had the time to question what happened as he fell toward the tin man.  The Sentinel bot extended an arm the size of a tree so much faster than anyone would have expected, and swatted the surprised 'insect' out of the air. After crashing into a wall, Kas remained motionless for a second as the Sentinel started to push itself up to sitting position. No stupid robot would have worked out the steps to get from laying to standing. This one had to be programmed with a higher understanding. An adaptive AI that could solve problems, as well as the equipment to nullify a variety of mutant powers.

Turning its hellish red eyes on Blade again, it re-stated that he was the current most-wanted mutant; still, for reasons unknown.

Blade was surprised at how well Kas's could react to such thing. Before Gavin even said anything, Kelly probably knew what had to be done. He seemed to be quite the smart boy. A nice partner in fighting the injustices only god knew happened all around New York city. And district X was a very good start. Still, there were plenty of other places to be searched. Although now, Gavin had to focus on taking down that robotic devil.

At the same time Kas used his offense, Gavin hit the sentinel's right leg. The impact didn't break the robot's leg, but it did take him of his balance. For such a huge thing, Blade was sure he hadn't done it alone. He was strong. Hell, really strong. Looking up, after nearly falling on his back, he noticed the sentinel avoid Kelly's attack. The piece of what was former pavement on the ground, stepped upon by hundreds of mutants, was now flying away, as it seemed the sentinel would come back to his offense state again soon.

At least that was what Gavin thought, but his level of surprise grew bigger as he noticed the huge robot laying next to the ravaged building, that before stood tall. Blade placed his hands on his ears, when the bot let out a giant scream. It still hurt his ears, but not as much as he was expecting. "What the hell is going on..."

Blade opened his eyes, slightly, and was able to catch sight of the sentinel swing its arm at Kas. Before Gavin could react, Kelly had already been bumped by the huge robotic monster. Blade tried to follow Kelly's position, but was much more worried about the sudden movements of the sentinel. "How on Earth did he just do that?". The curiousness in Gavin's tone was quite evident. The sentinel had gotten up faster than he had gotten down. A truly strange movement, that left Gavin to wonder what kind of mind had developed such a being.

Gavin looked deeply into the robot's eyes. Their reflection could be seen in his glasses. "Eliminating me? I don't 'motherefin' think so, robot trash..." He said, with an excited tone. He took his handgun out, and held it like it was nothing but a phone. Pouncing on the dislocated cars, parts of destroyed buildings, Gavin jumped up towards the robot's head, as he would probably land in front of his eyes. The gun was loaded, and ready to open Gavin's path in to the sentinel's inner grounds. The thought that Kas was so easily swatted down worried Blade. But for now, he was focusing on blasting the robotic bastard.

As though to remind him that a robot couldn't possibly register the feeling of fear for itself, the firey red eyes flashed; arming the laser beams that came standard on any Sentinel. This lighter chassis, double-strength myomers, enhanced gyroscope, adaptive AI model was far from standard. Obviously Blade's antics in District X in the past had earned him a reputation. The government pawns were granted permission to get the goodies out. A Mark II, with all the fancy counter-measures and improvements for combat against Beta and higher level mutants. 

While the bot's attention was diverted, Kas quickly jumped up and ran to the roof of the building, using the fire-escape stairs around the corner. The giant bent forward, preparing to fry Gavin before it got to its feet. That was when something thudded against the Sentinel's back, and a ringing of metal on metal struck. A laugh taunted the fearsome robot from behind. It tried to turn its head, though the only thing that happened was hydraulic fluid spilling onto the ground. The 'bot twitched, unable to move, though it was still very capable of laser fire.

"Blast the fucker!"
Hanging from little more than a long peice of metal sticking out of the back of the Sentinel's neck, Kas was smiling despite the looks of things. 
"Go for the eyes!"

While in the middle of the air, Gavin's thoughts still drifted as to why he was the target. Was it because of what had happened with Creed? Or was it just that his reputation preceeded him. All the dirty deeds he had done in the past he thought had slid right by, were actually monitored, and Blade was now marked as dangerous. His life in less than a minute. Easy to discribe.

Although Blade kept his chin up. And actually smirked.  "Guess I'm gonna have a little more fun every day now. Sounds good..." He saidm out loud, but directed towards no one in particular. He finally landed in front of the sentinel's headm grabbing onto his face. His fingers ripped through the metal skin of the huge sentinel.

With a loud clap, Gavin ripped most of the robot's face layer, and blasted his eyes with three straight shots. He floated down to his head with all his might and was able to make the sentinel move back, moving its gigantic feet, faster than usual.

Blade had come out the other side of the sentinel's head, although the bastard was still squirming and kicking. Gavin held onto the back of his kneck. "Hey Kas..." He yelled out, as he felt the sentinel vibrate, along with the floor, possibly from trying to remain up. "...another swing of wind might knock this fucker down. You can do it." He yelled up. He was not sure where Kas actually was, but he knew the guy had to be around.

After finishing suggesting Kelly what to do, Gavin placed a foot in the 'bot's neck, and caused a bit of his neck to be pushed in, as Blade flew down to the ground. As he landed, the ground shaked a bit, but Gav wasn't gonna stop there. He got in the middle of the sentinel's legs, and hit both nearly instantly, jumping between them. The loud noises of metallic cases being bent over by kicks were heard throughout the district. If Kas would attack the sentinel, with what Blade had just done, he was sure he would at least fall again. And then, they'd strike again.

As soon as Gavin stepped away, a shock of force similar to a speeding car rammed into the staggering giant, finally ending it. The Sentinel hit the ground with a crash, sending peices of its outer armor rattling apart and flying off. Exposed internal structure sparked as the robot's arm managed to twitch.
While the dust and wreckage settled, a smoky form appeared, standing over the ripped-up head of the downed enemy. The ghost lingered there for a moment, before dissolving into a cloudy mass that drifted through the hollowed eyesockets of the metallic face.
Barely a second later, the cloud rushed out, and a distant-sounding voice was trying to yell, though it was so far away, it scarcely reached more than a quiet murmur.

"Run! Run!! GO!"

PostSubject: Re: A Million Challenges Await (R)   Sun Jun 23, 2013 6:35 am

Gavin had been away from the sentinel, away enough for Kas to ram against it. Blade pounced around the flying parts of the robot. It seemed like hundreds of cars were being thrown Gavin. Blade arrived on top of the downed bot's chest. His landing had broken open the chest area even more.

Blade looked around, looking for Kas. That guy had a talent for disappearing. Gavin had got distracted enough for him to be hit with piece of the sentinel's former arm. He flew quite a while, finally hitting a nearly destroyed building. Gav was worried about what had just happened, but when he looked down, he noticed a piece of metal, sticking out of the building. That wasn't the bad part. The bad part was that he had been pierced by it. His chest felt extremely sore, and a pain rushed through Blade's mind.

His first movement, was placing his hands on the part of the structure that still held itself up. An impulse that gave him enough wind to fly the hell away from the damn metal. He dropped on the floor, crawling towards a dislocated car. His jacket and shirt were now off. Blade was not even sure how he had taken them off, but his wound was visible to anyone watching. The blood that poured down from Gavin's chest was wiped away, by a dark black hand. Blade's gloves now had blood dripping from them. But his wound was a little smaller.

Looking up, he saw the familiar cloud move out. Crap... He thought when he heard someone yell. How could he run? In his condition, it was close to impossible. However, when he looked back at his wound, it was closed. It still had blood around it, and Blade still felt it, but he was now on his feet. "Could be worst..." He commented, with a smirk. The smirk really wasn't in the best situation. But Blade did what the voice told him too, and ran in the opposite direction the sentinel had fallen. Anyone that was watching, could say that he was following the smoky cloud.

The cloud lead straight back to where they left the kid. He coughed, waving his hands around to clear the greenish-gray peculiar smelling smoke lingering in the doorway. A quick eye would catch him drop something small like a cigarette, and step on it.
"What is happening?"

There was no time to answer. 
For the briefest of moments, a rush of pressure seemed to pull the breath right out of their bodies.
It would have all been wasted gasping at the earth-shattering explosion that came anyway.
First there was a blinding flash. Then came the shockwave, tearing through everything without mercy.

Outside the doorway, the two could watch as the building across the street was ripped down by the blast. A car was hurled through the air like it was little more than a toy. The foundation of the building they took shelter beside started to shift, and as though they were caught on the set of an action film, they stood in stillness as wreckage fell around them. Nothing, not even a slight disturbance, made it past the doorway and the thin layer of smoke lingering like a curtain between them and the explosion.

"Shit, oh shit! Oh shit!" The kid was wide-eyed with terror as the walls around them began to lean. They could hear the bricks breaking and see cracks spider-webbing through the structure. He looked ready to bolt.

Then just as suddenly as it happened, it was over. Dust slowly began to settle, and a few peices of rubble tumbled down the side of the now demolished wreckage across the street.
A tired grumble from around the corner told them it was more than okay to step out now.
Kas was sitting against the wall, which now leaned away from the street at an angle after the back side of the building had partially crumbled.

Unhurt but fighting fatigue, Kas looked forlornly at the pile of rubble that used to be an abandoned office across the road. 
"There were people in there.." He lamented. It was highly unlikely for anyone to survive a structure collapsing on top of them, and Kas was far too tired to go upturning concrete to look. His senses were too fuzzy to know if anyone other than the three of them was nearby. Assuming the worst, he sighed and let his head fall back to rest against the wall behind him.

The brown-haired boy looked around in astonishment, blinking his bloodshot eyes, then finally produced the concealable case from his jacket and held it out to Gavin.
"Thank you! I wish there was some way to repay you for everything. That was badass!"

Blade continued to follow the cloud, noticing they were going back to where they were before. He noticed the kid was still there, which made Gavin at least be content that his life hadn't been taken by the robotic monster's attack. He had no idea how the kid had survived, but maybe, he was at the right distance, at the right time. A lucky shot, and the kid probably owned his life to Kelly and Gavin.

Gavin tried to answer the little kid's question, but not even he was completely sure about the answer. Gavin felt as his words were taken from his mouth before he could even talk. Blade was literally speechless, as a flash of light crossed the sky, and the blast of a seemingly seismic wave came through. It lifted fragments from the ground, and Blade could only avoid them.

Outside the doorway, Blade joined the kid and Kas in seeing the destruction of another building in front of them. Gavin watched, nearly awing when the car was thrown above him. Blade wasn't sure the building they took shelter in was the best place to be in, but he had to admit it was more protective than nothing. Gavin was relieved when the structure they were in held on and survived the wrecking going around it.

Shit, oh shit! Oh shit! Blade wanted to chuckle with the little kid's swearing, were it not the situation. Then, the walls began to lean. Gavin was now sure he shouldn't have been relieved, because the smack that ran through the other places, ran through this one as well.

Blade passed his hand by his forehead. The day had been tiring, and still wasn't over. He coughed afterwards, as all that dirt in the air wasn't good for him neither for the kid. But Kas could probably easily shake it off. Blade heard a growling mumble, saying it was okay to step out. Gavin was gonna do just that, but looked back at Kas. The kid was ten years younger than him. And although Blade already knew he could take a lot of shit, innocent people died. 

Gavin got up, as he was sitting near the kid. A little bit farther from the remaining of the collapsed building than Kas. "Not your fault dude. I trust you have family. Even in your cloud form you could've died there. And there was no way that could happen" - he tried to cheer up the younger man. Blade could go looking for people, but he was also extremely tired. His healing factor would soon make him a little less fatigued, but not in enough time to save people who were currently in need of help. Blade got up and stretched his legs afterwards. It felt as they'd just survived a nuclear explosion that killed millions. The good thing about it all, is that, that wasn't what happened.

It soon hit Gavin that the kid was probably still holding onto what he had given him. He was about to question the kid, when he actually gave him the metal case. Blade grabbed it and looked down on the kid. If only you knew... Lives had been taken, but the kid was too young to know it. 

Blade got closer to Kas. "Long day huh...what should we do with this?" He showed Kas the metal case again. "I may be able to hide, but do you have other plans?"

Kas gave Blade a mostly blank look for a moment as the more experienced man tried to show support. He shook his head and reached up to take the minuscule case. Opening it, he turned the one remaining needle over, examining it.
He knew exactly where to use this..
Now that the fighting was done he tucked it into the case and held onto it, currently lacking any pockets.

"I owe you an apology.." Kelly muttered to Gavin. "I was using you as bait."

It was a problem even before he could turn into an untouchable mist form.
When Kas let loose on the battlefeild, he was commonly the last one standing.
A human had virtually no chance. A mutant needed some kind of ability that could save them from suffocating, being blasted by force, getting impaled or cut to pieces by flying debris. Not to mention see and hear through the amount of disturbance and distraction he caused. The infiltrator was used to going it alone.

His friend Loika with her fast regenerative power and animalistic senses was the most successful partner-in-crime he'd ever run with. Though after seeing what Blade could do, he tried an idea he wasn't willing to subject his best friend to. 

"Sorry for that, back there."
Non-chalantly giving the apology that was obviously owed, Kas pushed off the wall to stand. 
He did feel guilt over using someone that trusted him in such a way, especially after the guy was nearly chopped in half by a chunk of shrapnel. Kas wasn't proud of it; but what's done is done.

Kelly looked over at the brown-haired boy, arching a brow.
Sitting on piled rubble, the kid was waiting for them to say yes or no about following him to his place. During the delay, he lit up another funky-smelling 'rolled cigarette' and coughed.
"Again?" Kas quipped. "You've got a real habit there, Cheech."

Coughing, the boy held up a finger, gesturing that he needed a second.
As the kid hacked a few more times, small spouts of bizarre green flames erupted from his mouth. 
"I still have it!" Half choking, 'Cheech' seemed overjoyed.
Kas was astonished.
"Well I'll be damned.."

Blade kept looking down on Kas, as he grabbed the case containing that which many of his brethren feared. He had close to no idea on how to use any of what could be related to medical equipment. Then again, he was no doctor. He was also pretty sure Kas wasn't a doctor either, but for the looks of things, the younger man probably had a bit more of learning than Gavin in the department of medicine.  

...using you as bait... Gavin's eyes widened a bit. He growled a bit on the inside, and clenched his fists. This Kelly was something new. But Blade wasn't as pissed as he could've been. Although people died, nothing worst happened. And Gavin had actually done a lot already. Bitch slap Trask, help save the kid, bring down a sentinel. A powerful day, to be remembered.

No matter what Kas had done, Gavin would be able to forget. None of them seemed to be hurt. And Kelly's actions didn't seem to have consequences on neither of them. For the moment. Blade was used having people around. But not those who actually did what he did. They just helped him. Not assist him. He had to admit that was actually pretty boring.

Recently, he had found a bit of a partner in Luna. But the kid was too young. She couldn't understand him, nor people as dark as him. Most of the times she thought killing people was for fun. It was not. It would never be like it. But Kas seemed to understand. He proved it by slightly showing his depression of knowing people had died, and he could not have stopped it.

"Forget about it. It's done anyway, and it ain't like I got hurt." Gavin rubbed the middle of his chest. He hadn't been truly hurt. Well, he'd never be truly hurt. But that wasn't a reason for Kas to use him. Still, Blade would soon stop caring about it. Making a big deal out of something that would soon stop sparking, and disappear from the minds of anyone that knew about it, would be a big mistake.

Blade turned his attention to the kid. Didn't inspire much trust, but then again, he was just a kid. But Blade had no idea who he was. Cheech? The Hell Kind of name is that? Blade asked himself. A kid like that smoking?What society was crumbling down to. Even Gavin enjoyed a cigarette or a drink every once in a while. But a kid. Damn.

Blade was starting to get a bit confused. Was this kid already acquainted to the likes of Kelly. He thought Kas knew this kid as well as he did himself. He didn't know anything about the kid. A sense of wonder passed through Blade's mind, when the kid mentioned he still had...something.

"Excuse me you two, if I'm getting confused. Where do you know this kid from Kas?" He asked, tilting his head to Cheech. "Why did your mother give you such a weird name?" He asked again, with a chuckle this time. "And what's still in your possession? Also, have a cigarette?"
That would surely help blow off Blade's steam.

Even in the poor humor of the devistation around them, Kelly couldn't stifle a chuckle.

The brown-haired kid's eyes went as wide as saucers at the word 'posession'.
"That is not my name!" He coughed, another gout of green flame leaving his lips.

"My name is Javier. Javier Lagunes..." His looks didn't do much to give it away, but the name definately said the kid had roots south of the border.
"My friends call me.. Deadhead."
As the kid stated this, he lit up like a match with eerie green fire. Hands and face were still barely visable, though even his eyes were now jets of bright green. The kid dropped what he was holding, and a slight breeze caused the 'cigarette' to steadily roll away.

Kas broke down laughing at the name 'Dead-head', somehow having gotten over his remorse in the span of a mere few seconds.
"Omahgawd! That's fukkin rich!"

Kelly's laughter was a bit intoxicating. Maybe because it was needed after such hazardous event had come down. Gavin chuckled a bit as well. His mood changed into that of a lighter tone. For him it wasn't too bad. He usually felt good when his mood was up. But then again, nobody felt good when their mood was down.

This kid looks like a dragon, spitting fire. Blade nodded as Javier said his name wasn't what Gavin was thinking it was. Well Gav had that figured out already. Javier. Still a pretty weird name, Gavin thought."Seems like we both have friends calling us...stuff" Blade clapped slightly as Javier made those green flames surround him. 

Gavin's attention, however, was still on Kas. What did he know about this? He seemed to be more involved with the kid than what he wanted to show. Blade didn't really have a problem with that. In fact, he was simply curious. "Nice powers kid," Gav tilted his head towards Kelly. "Opinion on them Kas? What do you think Javier can do with those?"

He was sure he didn't have to tell Javier his powers. Nor show them. They were easy to understand. And so were Kas's. But Blade was interested in what extent did Javier's powers go to. Were they like Shikon's? If so, what would be their difference? The color of the fire. Other than that, Gavin couldn't point anything. "Well..." He muttered.
