with a wind that promises
dead leaves and
while my hair dances
wildly in the wind
and a vinyl spins
faster than the earth
and the moon shines
right into this
soul of mine
and i need to be
somewhere in this
i need to wave my arms
in a raging storm
and curl up in
the smell of rain

Two o’clock in the morning it was, when the helicopter appeared at the Xavier Institute. It landed on a small tarmac that could have also been used for tennis. The occupants filtered out one by one with the Professor being one of the last ones out. The institute was dark or so they had thought. A few lights on the first level of the building lit up, and a few of the students appeared at the windows as Kristina walked out towards them. Her face showed every signs of frustration and annoyance as she walked quickly over to them. She stopped when she was close enough to Scott and Logan, raised a hand to stop Scott from whatever thought he was about to voice before folding her arms akin to that of a parent who had waited up for the rebellious child to return at a late hour.
“Explain.” She demanded, voice lacking in the usual carefree upbeat tone they were used to hearing. She knew that Storm was not going to be among them, she and her nephew were visiting fam

Pietro and Kody were walking back to base, sneaking in really because they weren’t suppose to leave, but the two wanted to go see a movie together. They really hadn’t had any time to just catch up and talk like old friends usually did. They snuck through a window that was a part of Pietro’s room. Kody went out into the hall to go to her room, but the quiet atmosphere unnerved her. It wasn’t that late into the night, surely someone else had to be up. Granted they didn’t want anyone to catch them as they snuck back in, but they figured Wanda and Lance would stay up to tease them about it.
“… Pietro?” Kody called.
“What?” He asked, suddenly appearing next to her.
“I don’t think… anyone’s here.”
“What are you talking about? My father didn’t have anything planned today, which is why we agreed to sneak out to watch a movie.” He shrugged. “Maybe they’re all asleep?

“… Why isn’t Kody here?” Lance asked as he, Pietro and Wanda were in at one end of a room designed for training. Magneto was at the opposite end, preparing the latest session.
“She’s more of an information collector than combat specialist.” Pietro answered. It had been two weeks since Magneto assigned the technopath to find whatever “project” Senator Kelly had planned on introducing once his Mutant Response Division Act would pass, prompted by Zero’s mission report. She was unable to get specific details about said “project”, which meant that Kody was once again locked up in her room filled with hacking equipment.
“She still should be here, we are part of a team, aren’t we?” He remarked.
“He just doesn’t want his girlfriend to get hurt, so he asked dad to have her excused from training.” Wanda replied.
“She’s not my girlfriend!” Pi

Magneto knew about the telepathy through touch. Zero was surprised, and yet, she wasn’t. It definitely didn’t surprise her that he wanted to use that aspect of her mutation to gain information from “the enemy” as he put it. When she asked who “the enemy” was, he referred to anyone who was “not like them”. She assumed that it was non-mutants. Soon after this conversation she was given a mission, a trip to Washington DC, and a target: New York Senator Robert Kelly.
The name was familiar. He was the one who was openly, and aggressively, against mutants. He proposed a motion where mutants were to “register” who they were and what they could do. He had even suggested a Mutant Response Division to control the… uncooperative mutants. Everyone was talking about him in the streets, mutants and non-mutants alike, and usually there was fifty percent for him and a fifty percent against him. Zero came to t
