Aislyn: *she walks into the front part of the mansion, carrying a duffel bag full of clothes and stuff. She can't help but feel like she's seen this place on TV or something before...*
Tabitha: Hey, you the new student?
Aislyn: *nods, dropping her bag with a thud* Yeah. So, what're you in for? Can't sleep either?
Amara: Actually, it does get pretty loud here.
Tabitha: So what's you name and what's you power?
Aislyn: *frowns a little* I'm Aislyn, and what do you mean power? I'm just here to see some specialist about my sleep disorder.
Roberto: A sleep disorder?
Aislyn: *laughs weakly* Yeah. I quit sleeping about two weeks ago, and my parents freaked. It's kinda been one long string of doctors. But, on the plus side, I missed class. *grins a bit. She doesn't look like she's missed any sleep. No yawning, no dark circles, nothing.* Anyway, one of the doctors recommended this place. Said there was an expert on my "condition" here. Professor Xander or something like that.
Sam: So you really don't know...?
*at this point a young woman with very long hair walks in to the room*
Jean: Oh hello, you must be Aislyn Sharp. Iím Jean Grey, one of the instructors here.
Aislyn: *gives Sam a confused look, but smiles at Jean when she enters the room* Hello, Ms. Grey. I just got here. Uh... *glances at Sam and the others* Exactly what kind of school is this anyway?
Jean: Um, when was the last time you saw the news?
Aislyn: *a bit embarrassed* Not too recently... My mom's convinced that if I watch TV I'm going to devolve into a drooling idiot.
Jean: *looks a little relieved* This is a school to help certain gifted individuals learn to use their abilities to benefit human society.
Aislyn: *let's this sink in* .....I'm a mutant?
Jean: Well, yes.
Jean: You want me to show you to your room?
Aislyn: I guess, but I think you've got the wrong girl. I can't be a mutant. My whole family is normal. Besides, I don't have any powers. It's just insomnia...
Jean: Are you tired? Have you been tired at all for the past two weeks?
Aislyn: Well.... no.
Jean: And you also seem to be able to keep other people from getting sleep, which would be why the doctor mentioned you to the Professor.
Aislyn: *shrugs a little and picks up her bag* My mom is going to flip when- *brief pause* if she finds out. *sheepish grin* I just hope nobody has to be well-rested for anything tomorrow...
Jean: You might have some moderate control now that you realize what you were doing. *She opens a door down the hall* Any way, here's your room. Hope you like it here.
Aislyn: *decides she's hungry, and goes to get something to eat. Problem is, she doesn't remember where the kitchen is, so she ends up roaming the halls. Even though she's not making any noise, there's a 100% chance of her waking up everybody in any room she passes.*
*When she does get downstairs, and very sleepy Kurt is watching whatever movie's on at 3AM on the TV.*
Aislyn: *is happy to see someone else up. She trots over and flops down next to him on the couch. Then his appearance sinks in.* .....
Kurt: Um, hi. You're the new student right?
Aislyn: *nods a little* Uh, yeah, I- uh... Sorry, this is gonna bug me until I ask, but....do you always look like that?
Kurt: Um well.....I've got an image inducer that I wear most of the time. But other than that yeah.
Aislyn: ...Coool. So, uh, what's your power?
Kurt: *Teleports to the other side of the room and back*
Kurt: What's yours?
Aislyn: *laughs nervously* Uh... first let me ask you something. Are you usually wide-awake at three in the morning?
Kurt: *yawns* No, why?
Aislyn: First of all, I'm sorry. Secondly, that's my power. I haven't slept in a few weeks, and neither can anyone around me.
Kurt: *sighs* Well, to be fair, with everybody learning about mutants, we probably weren't going to get a lot of sleep anyways.
Aislyn: So, is there anywhere fun to go in Bayville at night? Like a 24-hour arcade or something?
Kurt: Actually I don't know, probably.
Aislyn: *mischievous smile* Well, let's go and see. It can't be too hard to sneak out of this place, especially seeing as how you can get us past walls.
Kurt: But we'd be sneaking out!
Aislyn: *laughs* Well, yeah! That's the idea. Look at it this way: If I'm out there somewhere, then people in here can sleep. By sneaking out, I'd be doing them a service!
Kurt: I guess so....... *BAMFS out and returns looking like a normal human*
Kurt: So we're going into town then?
Aislyn: *nods* Alright. ^_^ So, are we gonna slip out the front door, or is there some sneaky back way?
Kurt: Well.....I can teleport.
Aislyn: *grins* That works.
Kurt: But just to get out of the mansion, okay? Nobody really knows I'm blue and furry yet.
Aislyn: *nods* Okay, just to get outside. After that, we walk.
*a few bamfs and a lot of walking later, Aislyn and Kurt manage to find an arcade that's open. It looks rather run down and half of the games don't even work*
Aislyn: Ooh! That one looks fun! *darts over to one of the games that does work. It might just be that Kurt's tired and she's a bit hyper, but from the way she's acting, you'd think she'd never been in an arcade before.*
Kurt: Mien Gott, it looks like the Brotherhood house......
Aislyn: Brotherhood house? *tries to eat one of the ghosts, and loses at Pacman. She puts in another quarter* What's the Brotherhood house?
Pietro: Where the Brotherhood lives of course. Hello, you're new to town aren't you? Need any one to show you around?
Aislyn: *raises an eyebrow at him* No thanks. Kurt's got it covered. *tilts her head* And just who are the Brotherhood?
Kurt: *whispers* They're these really stupid mutants that go to the same school as us and they're working for an evil mutant called Magneto that's trying to take over the world.
Pietro: Am not!
Aislyn: *raises an eyebrow at Pietro* So you're not a mutant?
Pietro: *rolls his eyes, runs out of the arcade, and runs back in holding a couple of flowers* No, I'm not stupid.
Aislyn: *takes the flowers and sniffs them* So you're not stupid, but you are a mutant helping some psycho named Magneto to take over the world?
Kurt: Of course he's helping! Magneto is his father!
Pietro: You know, for someone who looks like a blue furry demon, you're pretty judgmental. *steals Kurt's image inducer*
Pietro: Okay, that would've been a lot more effective if somebody else was actually paying attention.....
Aislyn: *laughs* Family business, then? Taking over the world one hologram at a time?
Aislyn: *holds out her hand towards Pietro, like she's asking him to hand it back* I'm very impressed. Really.
Pietro: *shrugs* Hey, everybody does stuff for different reasons. Ask some of the X-Geeks why they're there sometime. As for the watch, find it first! *runs off with the watch* See ya!
Aislyn: *to Kurt* ...You don't by any chance know where he might be going, do you?
Kurt: Maybe back to the Brotherhood house? After all, it's *looks at a clock on the wall* 5 AM? Oh man, we've got to get back to the Mansion, we're already going to be in a lot of trouble, and what If somebody sees me like this?
Aislyn: *laughs nervously* I'm sure they can get you another watch.... but you're right, we need to hurry. Sun's gonna come up soon.
Kurt: *when they get back to the mansion, Ororo, Mr. McCoy and the Professor are there waiting for them*
Aislyn: *gives the adults her best disarming grin.*
Xavier: Are you aware what time it is?
Aislyn: ....Half past too late to be out?
Ororo: As much as the two hours of sleep are appreciated, you're still not allowed to sneak out.
Aislyn: Aww, come on. It's not like it hurt anything!
Kurt: That reminds me, I'm going to need a new holowatch.
Professor: *frowns* Oh?
Aislyn: Yeah, uh, this Pietro guy took it. Said we'd have to find it if we wanted it back, but it was getting late, and we figured it'd be better to get Kurt home before the sun came up. *is still holding one of the flowers Pietro brought her, btw.*
Professor: *sighs* Aislyn, I'd like you to look for it starting this evening. Kurt, you may stay home form school tomorrow while you have some extra Danger Room sessions.
Aislyn: Danger Room? *has been here less than 24 hours, so she hasn't gotten to experience Logan's training. Or the pleasure of meeting him, actually.*
Kurt: Picture your school gym, Now picture your school gym rigged with every death-trap imaginable and you're halfway there.
Aislyn: Sounds rough.
Kurt: *sighs* You have no idea.
Beast: Considering your powers Aislyn, it might be best for you to be away from the mansion at night. We just need to know first. It would be preferable to send someone with you, but that not likely to be possible.
Aislyn: Not a problem. *snickers* Maybe I can keep the Brotherhood company. At least 'til Pietro gives Kurt's watch back, anyway.
Professor: *frowns a bit, but doesnít comment on it* You should get ready for school now, breakfast will be in an hour.
Aislyn: Okay, Professor
*cut to later at breakfast*
*and most of the students are complaining about the lack of sleep they got last night*
Aislyn: *is trying not to look so well-rested, and failing.*
Ray: Hey, how come you're not tired?
Aislyn: *nervous laugh* I, uh, don't sleep. At all.
Jamie: That's a pretty lame power.
Aislyn: Well, it's not my ONLY power.
Aislyn: I also cause insomn- *stops, realizing too late that this might not be the best thing
Roberto: Wait a minute, YOUíRE the reason nobody got any sleep?
Bobby: I've got a math test today!
Aislyn: *winces* It's not like I did it on purpose!
Aislyn: *is really feeling the love and acceptance, needless to say.*
*cut to school, where most of the lazier residents of the Xavier Institute are late to class*
Aislyn: *wasn't intending to be late, but she's less than competent with a schedule and a map, and has gotten herself all turned around and lost.* *to herself* Why does every hallway have to look the same?
Kid-by-the-door: 'Cause it's a high school?
Aislyn: *gives the kid a dirty look, then frowns at her map* ...I'm in the East unit, right?
Kid: Sorry, this is South.
Aislyn: *mutters* Great. *looks at the map again, then stalks off. Being less than directionally gifted, she's heading straight towards West.*
*and then the bell rings*
Aislyn: *swears under her breath. For a kid who's been home-schooled and not allowed to go anywhere or watch TV, she's got some pretty colorful language.*
Pietro: *walks by with some super glue and blue dye* Now is that the sort of thing someone should say on their first day?
Aislyn: Whoever designed this school is a filthy sadist. *tilts her head* What are you doing with that stuff?
Pietro: *grins* Redecorating.
Aislyn: *shrugs and tucks the schedule into her backpack. She figures missing one class won't be so big a deal. After all, it's just Spanish.* Sounds like fun. This building's color scheme is awful. *grins* ...Didn't know you were into community service.
Pietro: This place is so bad it's practically a crime itself. Want to label what's where for poor new students like you?
Aislyn: *smirks* Of course. We wouldn't want anyone else to get turned around and miss Spanish.
Pietro: *runs off and comes back with a can of spray paint and a paint bucket* Here you go, have fun. If you keep walking in that direction you'll get to West. *hands her the spray paint and runs of to 'redecorate'*
*while Aislyn is busy vandalizing her school, one of the Janitors sees her*
Janitor: Hey! I just finished repainting that from the last time someone decided to label everything!
Aislyn: Well if you'd just left it labeled, I wouldn't have to be fixing it.
Aislyn: *A little later, she's sitting in Principal Kelly's office next to Pietro. (Todd's probably there too.)*
Aislyn: *to Pietro* Okay, so now what happens to us? *knows absolutely nothing about high school discipline.*
Pietro: *leans back in the chair* Normally just detention, but since everyone's paranoid about mutants I'll probably get expelled, and that Professor of your might be able to keep you in school
Aislyn: ...Was getting expelled what you were trying to do?
Pietro: It's not like I'm actually here a lot.
Aislyn: *laughs* Your parents actually let you do that?
Pietro: *turns away* Yeah well, that would mean he'd actually have o care wouldn't it?
Aislyn: *winces* Sorry. I didn't mean anything by it. *sighs a little* Still, it must be nice to have so much freedom. I got chewed out for sneaking out last night, and I was doing them all a favor.
*The door to Principal Kelly's office as a really annoyed-looking teen walks out. Kelly's about to ask the next student to come in but then he sees who it is.*
Kelly: Okay that's it! I've already had to talk to the rest of you delinquents today, have somebody pull my desk off of the ceiling, and I'm sick of it! The four of you are expelled from Bayville High as of now!
Aislyn: ...*raises her hand a little bit* I'm not one of the four you're talking about, am I Mr. Kelly?
Kelly: Oh God, you're the new student from that freak house aren't you?
Aislyn: *Oh, btw, the hand she raised happens to still have some spray paint on it* ....kinda. *this is her first taste of anti-mutant prejudice. Well, being the target of it, anyway.*
Kelly: Another one? You're suspended for the week!
Aislyn: *blinks, nonplussed* Suspended? What's that?
Kelly: Two weeks!
Aislyn: Okay, but I still don-
Pietro: Temporarily thrown out.
Aislyn: Oh. ...So the punishment for acting badly is not having to come? Cool.
Kelly: What are you still doing here?! Get out!
Aislyn: I'm just a sophomore! I don't drive yet! How am I supposed to get home?
Pietro: *coughs* Hello?
Aislyn: You'll give me a ride? *smiles*
Pietro: *grins* Sorta.
Aislyn: *picks up her bag to follow him?*
*after they're outside*
Pietro: Any place you'd like to go?
Aislyn: Anywhere but here or home, to be honest. I'm kind of in the doghouse with the Professor already. Is there anywhere better than that, er, 'arcade' we were at last night?
Pietro: Alright then. *picks her up and runs to a fair in the next school district.* This good?
Aislyn: ....*fixes her pigtails* That was sweet. *looks around* Jeez, that ride looks like it's about to collapse....wanna try it?
Pietro: *grins* Looks like fun.
Aislyn: *ends up being pretty unimpressed with the ride* Jeez, that coaster seemed kind of....slow. Y'know?
Pietro: When you can move as fast as I do, everything pretty much is.
Aislyn: You've got my sympathies, there. *laughs* Y'know, you're not as bad as everyone says. What're the rest of the Brotherhood like?
Pietro: Lance has a short temper, Blob eats pretty much everthing, Toad's stalking my sister, who thinks he's slime.
Aislyn: No adults?
Pietro: Well, Mystique used to be there, and sometimes Magneto or Mastermind show up.....
Jean: It's really nice to be able to get away sometimes.
Scott: Yeah, we don't have to deal with the protestors or the-*they see Aislyn and Pietro* QUICKSILVER?
Jean: Aislyn? Shouldn't you be in school?
Aislyn: Uh oh.... Uh... Hi Miss Grey. Y'see, it's a really funny story on why I'm not there....
Jean: What made vandalizing the school seem like a good idea to you?
Scott: *glares at Pietro* I bet I know....
Pietro: *shrugs* Hey, all I did was give her the paint.
Aislyn: If I'd known that the Principal was going to- ...hey, how'd you know I vandalized the school?
Aislyn: Oh, that is so cheating.... *Shrugs a little* Well, it's not like I'm breaking any rules now. I mean, Principal Kelly told me to go, so I went. *nervous grin*
Scott: You do realize that suspension is a punishment, right?
Aislyn: In theory, yes. But I don't think it's a very good one. I'd much rather be here than at school, wouldn't you?
Jean: She does have a point.
Aislyn: So, anyway, what time do you want me back at the house by? *fully intends to keep enjoying herself instead of going home for the punishment that is inevitably waiting for her.*
Jean: We're going back now.
Pietro: *whispers* Hey, do you really want to go?
Aislyn: *whispers back* No, not really. But it's not like I've got much of a choice, right?
Pietro: Actually..... *he doesnít get a chance to finish because right then Jean telekinetically pushes him away from Aislyn* Hey!
Aislyn: *looks crestfallen, and starts to walk over to Scott and Jean* *to Pietro* Maybe I'll catch you some other time?
Scott: Let's hope not.
*on the ride back, Aislyn is lectured and told to stay away from Pietro by Jean. Repeatedly*
Jean: It's obvious that he's been a bad influence on you.
Aislyn: *is getting annoyed, and figures that she can't get in any more trouble that she's already in. She slumps over and makes a snoring sound, like Jean's latest lecture put her to sleep.*
Jean: Nice try. Just wait until we get home.
Aislyn: *"wakes up" with a nervous laugh*
*and when they get back, the Professor is waiting for them*
Aislyn: *gets out of the car, staring at her feet and looking guilty. Though, to be fair, she's honestly more sorry that she got caught than she is sorry about what she did.*
Xavier: I'm very disappointed in you Aislyn.
Aislyn: I... I honestly didn't mean for all this to happen. I just... I got all turned around, and then the bell rang, and everything looked the same, and then Pietro showed up and... things kinda snowballed.
Xavier: Principal Kelly is attempting to sue us for property damage.
Aislyn: Oh, Kelly is so full of- *catches herself*! One week of my suspension was just for living here, and the other week was for not knowing what suspension was! I don't think he even knows what I did. Well, okay, he probably knows what happened, but he doesn't know which parts I did and which parts Pietro did. *realizes, too late, that maybe mentioning Pietro isn't going to help her case.*
Xavier: I believe it's time for you to start your training in the Danger Room. You will have one session a day for the duration of your suspension, and will continue to take classes here.
Aislyn: Okay. *puts her hands in her pockets, then frowns, and pulls the watch out* Oh, uhm, I got Kurtís image-inducer back. ....somehow.
Xavier: At least you managed to accomplish something positive today. Return it to Kurt and go to your room to think about what you've done. *Leaves the room*
Aislyn: *uh, goes to find Kurt?*
Kurt: *was sleeping on the couch, but wakes up when Aislyn walks in*
Aislyn: Oh, I'm sorry. Did I wa- ...stupid question. Catch. *tosses him the image inducer*
Kurt: *catches it* Where did you find it?
Aislyn: In my pocket after spending half the day with Pietro, actually.
Kurt: What? Why were you spending the day with Pietro?
Aislyn: Oh, I got expelled. Wait, no, Pietro and three other guys got expelled. I just got suspended for two weeks.
Kurt: Aislyn.....they're bad news. Wait, what did you do?
Aislyn: I only cut Spanish class! ...Oh, and uh, helped Pietro redecorate the West Unit. That too.
Kurt: *sighs* At least you got my holowatch back.
Aislyn: I also got your Danger Room sessions, too. What is Mr. Logan like? Think he'll like me?
Kurt: Before or after he realizes that you're the cause of everybody's insomnia?
Aislyn: Before. Everyone hates me after, that's a given.
Kurt: Well, he used to be this ultimate military weapon and when he was, his entire skeleton was taken out and replaced with an unbreakable metal.
Aislyn: ...I take it he's not the "safeness and puppies" type?
Kurt: Not..... really.
Aislyn: *is the first one to breakfast next morning. She's wearing PJ's, as she attempted to
sleep last night. Failed, but tried.*
*everybody else files in slowly and they're pretty cranky. Worse, they all know it's her fault*
Aislyn: *stares at her plate, trying not to make eye contact.*
Bobby: *freezes her plate*
Aislyn: *frowns a bit. She doesn't know what everyone's powers are, and as she was looking down instead of up, she has no idea who did that.* *mostly to herself* Oh well. Not hungry anyway. *pries her frozen plate off the table, and takes it over to the dishwasher.*
Aislyn: *goes to her first Danger Room session with Logan a little later She's about ten minutes late, as she's really not looking forward to this.*
*The Danger Room is just set up as a simple obstacle course for now*
Logan: Since this is your first time, this runs through is more like and assessment test, to see how much help you actually need.
Aislyn: *runs the course, and basically proves that while she's in good shape, she's very uncoordinated, and bad at timing things like jumps. She also shows that she's very resilient, as she catches her leg on one of the obstacles, and ends up falling and hitting her head on the ground hard. However, she just shakes it off like it were nothing and keeps going.*
*the rest of the time in the Danger Room consists of her running through several obstacle course of varying difficulties.*
*the adults have given some good reason for Aislyn to be outside in the woods without adult supervision*
Aislyn: *is "orienteering", and is supposed to keep this up for the next several hours. Thing is, it doesn't take too long to figure out how to work a GPS unit. She's also pretty sure that she knows the real reason why they sent her off.*
Pietro: Enjoying not having school?
Aislyn: *laugh* Depends on whether or not you count the fact that everyone in the mansion is miserable, and they all know it's my fault. Not counting that, it's been alright. I even don't mind the Danger Room sessions.
Aislyn: *holds up the little GPS thing* Right now I'm "orienteering" for the next five hours. I wonder how long it took them to think this one up.
Pietro: Think they're actually watching you?
Aislyn: No. At this point, I don't think they care WHAT I do so long as I come back when I'm supposed to, and not a minute sooner. Oh, by the way, thanks for giving the watch back. I think it saved me from a harsher punishment.
Pietro: Who's giving you the Danger Room sessions?
Aislyn: Logan. He's been calling me "Night Owl" instead of my name, too. *grins a little* I think I like it, though.
Pietro: You got to admit it fits.
Pietro: So....want to go catch a movie or something?
Aislyn: Well, I don't know... *fake concern* after all, you're a Bad Influence on me. Jean told me about a million times just what a Bad Influence you are. I had to fake a coma to get her to stop.
Pietro: Tch, Kitty's DATING Lance and you don't hear Ms. Perfect carping about them do you?
Aislyn: *frowns a little* Really? I thought she was going out with Kurt.
Pietro: *shrugs* News to me. I thought he was with that Sefton girl.
Aislyn: So, are there any good slasher-fliks running?
Pietro: I actually don't know let's go look.
Aislyn: *later on, looking at the theatre's billboard thing* Hmm... jeez, what is it with people and "romantic comedies"? They're all practically the same story, just flipped around a little. "Shaun of the Dead" looks like it might be good, though.
Pietro: Sounds as good as any. Want anything?
Aislyn: Popcornextrabutterholdthesalt. ^_^
Aislyn: True. And if she did know, she probably wouldn't reject it. She's probably eager to see what soda tastes like. And "real" burgers, as opposed to the soy ones she's been eating all her life.
Aislyn: *thinks a moment* Get me some candy or something with caffeine. I've always wanted to try some of that stuff. ^_^
Pietro: You've never had candy?
Aislyn: *shakes her head* No. Remember how I said my mom was a little overprotective?
Pietro: Wow. *buys her a large Mountain Dew and a pack of (insert choice candy here.)*
* they go to watch the movie and stuff*
Aislyn: *is watching the movie, happily sipping her Dew and eating her Skittles. She also seems to have gotten a sudden, and very severe, case of "nervous, annoying, twitchy leg".* *whispers* Idon'tseewhymymomneverwantedmetohaveanyofthisstuffy'know?Sugarandcaf fienearegreatIfeelsoawakeandstuffandtherereallyaren'tanydrawbacksImeanit'sn otlikeit'smakingmeactweirdoranythingy'know?Thanksforbuyingitformebythewa yandI'mreallylikingthismovieit'sfunnyashell.
Pietro: Itisprettyfunnyisn'tit?Andareyousureyou'reokay?NormallyI'mtheo nlyonethattalksthatfast.
Aislyn: Don'tworry,I'mfine.Well,myheartfeelskindofjumpyalloverandtheroomis spinningalittle,butIlikeit.It'skindoflikethatbadrollercoasterwewenton. *throws a skittle up in the air and opens her mouth to catch it*
Todd: *grabs it with his tongue and eats it*
Aislyn: *blinks, and frowns when it doesn't come down. She tosses another one up to see what happens to it.*
Todd: *cathes the next one*
Aislyn: *turns, sees him, and immediately starts clambering over the seats (and any people unfortunate enough to be in them) to attack him* Heythatwasmineyoulittleweaselhowdareyoustealmycandy!
Todd: *hops away* It's not like you didn't have any yo!
Pietro: *to himself* This is going to turn out badly and somehow all be my fault, isn't it?
Aislyn: *grabs someone else's soda, and throws it at him as he hops.* Getbackhereyoulittlechickenwhuss!
Todd: *catches it with his tongue and throws it back at her*
Aislyn: *gets drenched. Of course, by this time, many people are fleeing the theatre, as there is some drugged-up teenager and a mutant getting into a fight.*
Aislyn: *blinks a moment in shock, then her face twists into an expression of pure rage, and her eyes glow brightly in the dark theatre. She focuses all of her psionic energy at poor little Todd. Time for hallucinations and delusions and exhaustion!*
Todd: *looks over any food in the theatre* Mine.
Aislyn: *She still has the bag with the rest of her skittles clenched in her hand. Oh, btw,
Toad also suddenly looks like hell, too. Dark circles under his eyes, pale, twitchy, etc.*
Todd: Mine. Mine. Mine. *tries to grab the skittle bag* Mine.
Aislyn: NO! *pulls it away, her eyes glowing brighter. Time for Toad to see the zombies are crawling out of the movie or something?*
Pietro: *to Aislyn* Wait, you actually HAVE a power?
Todd: *screams and points to the bag* You're not getting my brains you evil zombie sock!
Aislyn: *apparently her power is to cause psychosis in other people. She wavers a little bit, then suddenly falls unconscious, releasing her hold on Todd's poor brainmeats.*
Toad: *groans and holds his head, then shakes it abruptly, like he's just been splashed in the face with cold water.* Whoa.... Pietro! Why didn't you warn me she was a brain-scrambler, yo? I'm gonna be havin' nightmares for a week!
Pietro: I didn't think she actually had powers! You better hope she's just asleep Toad.
Toad: Me? How's this my fault? I didn't know she'd go psycho over two skittles!
Aislyn: *hit her head on one of the armrests when she fainted, so she's got a little cut on her temple that's, well, bleeding like a head wound. She's also breathing very quickly, like she's somehow sugar-buzzed AND unconscious.*
Pietro: *mutters* Father's going to kill me......
*picks up Aislyn* Pleasedon'tdie,pleasedon'tdie,pleasedon'tdie. *runs with her back to the Brotherhood House*
Lance: *had just gotten a soda out of the fridge when Pietro came in, carrying an unconscious, bleeding, and soda-covered Aislyn*
Lance: ...Dude, what did you do to her?
Pietro: I didn't do anything, one minute she was eating a bag of skittles, then Todd was seeing zombie socks, and then Aislyn passed out!
Lance: What happened to her head? *starts digging around under the couch for the first-aid kit* Hopefully Toad didn't eat all the bandages again.
Pietro: You can't actually die form caffeine, can you? *starts searching for a relatively clean rag*
Lance: Hell if I know. Remember when Daniels drank that soda- stuff and ended up looking like an armadillo? Who knows how things might affect her. *finds and opens the first aid kit, only to find all the medical stuff is gone, and it's been filled with (very stale) marshmallow peeps. The ground rumbles a bit, and he closes it and throws it back under the couch*
Pietro: *gave up and tore up one of Lance's shirts* Yeah but that stuff was bad for all mutants, she only had sugar and caffeine. I have that stuff all the time, and you don't see me slipping into a coma.
Lance: Magneto's gonna be pissed. You were supposed to cozy up to her, not kill her. *goes to hold her head still so Pietro can bandage her up. One of his hands is down near her neck* Hey, do you remember what the normal human pulse is supposed to be? I slept through that whole chapter of Biology.
Pietro: Slower than mine? Maybe this is just because she hadn't had any before. I mean, five bags of skittles and a large Mountain Dew is a lot right?
Lance: *stares at him* Yes, it's a lot. Half that would have me talking faster than you! And Toad gets hyper just from seeing sugar. ....Wait, what do you mean hasn't had any before? You're telling me she's never had candy and pop?
Lance: So, genius, what are you planning on having us do when the X-Men kick down our front door and find their half-dead housemate on our couch?
Pietro: Forget them! What about when Father finds out?! Pleasedon'tdiepleasedon'tdiepleasedon'tdie.
Lance: I don't even get why she's so important. I mean, you said that she doesn't even have any powers.
Pietro: Remember how I said Todd started seeing zombie socks?
Lance: Yeah. Why?
Pietro: That was after she got mad.
Lance: Anyway, when the X-Geeks show up, you can explain it to them. I'm not getting pulled into this. *goes upstairs*
Kurt: *has been looking everywhere for her, and as a last resort he's trying the Brotherhood house. Even if Aislyn isn't here, there's a good chance that the Brotherhood knows where she is. He brought Kitty along, as she seems to be the best at talking to them.* *walking up to the front door* Hopefully they haven't gotten her into more trouble.
Kitty: But why would she hang out with them? She's, like, one of us, right?
Kurt: I think so. But, you have to admit, Pietro seems to have been a lot friendlier to her than most of the students at the Institute. Somehow the other newer students found out that she was the cause of our insomnia.
Kitty: But couldn't we just like send her out at night?
Kurt: *yawns a little* First night here, I helped her sneak out for a while. That's why everybody else got those two hours of sleep. It's also how she got in trouble in the first place.
Kitty: But then how'd she get two weeks of extra Danger Room sessions?
Kurt: I don't know exactly what happened, but the same thing that got her suspended got most of the Brotherhood expelled. For all I know, she might have just been in the wrong place at the wrong time. Or with the wrong crowd.
Kitty: I hope she wasn't at the theater when all that stuff happened. It looked pretty wrecked. *knocks on the door* Hello?
Pietro: *opens the door enough to poke his head out* Hello, we're not taking visitors right now. Trying to save what's left of Lance's dignity and all. Hey! *Kitty phases through him*
Kurt: *looks annoyed and teleports past him* We're not here for Lance. We were just wondering if you've seen- Aislyn!! *teleports over to the couch*
Kitty: OMG what did you do?!
Pietro: Sheesh, what is it with people assuming that it MY fault?
Kurt: *angry* Maybe because she's been hanging out with you, and we found her injured in your house! Come on Aislyn, let's- *realizes* Kitty, she's unconscious!
Pietro: She kinda.....collapsed in the movie theater.
Kitty: So you mean that was you guys too?
Kurt: *bamf**brief pause**bamf*
Kurt: *teleported Aislyn away, gave her to Jean, then came back* A girl who is physically and mentally incapable of sleep does not just collapse! What did you creeps do?
Pietro: I swear I didn't actually do anything. She asked for candy and drinks with a lot of caffeine so I gave them to her! Wait, physically and mentally incapable of sleep? How come no one tells me these things?
Kurt: Because we don't trust you. Besides, I figured Aislyn would have told you that her power is that she can't sleep, and nobody around her can sleep either. That is why we were out at that arcade so late.
Kitty: So is she like, going to be okay?
Kurt: For Pietro's sake, she better be. They rushed her into the Infirmary, but the Professor didn't seem too worried, so I think things will be alright.
