We are currently set around finals. So Mayish. We do not add years so that the characters can remain the same age for as long as the players want.

Welcome to X-Men After the Chaos!

We are an AU Movie game set after X-Men 1.

There wasn't much left. Cities leveled, billions dead, the civilization of complete continents wiped out without any survivors. The planet was in ruins and there was no stopping what was going to come next. Apocalypse was going to win and with his complete powers along with the Infinity gems nowhere in the galaxy would be safe. With his arrogance, he let his guard down and at that moment the Gauntlet had to kill each of the gems to get control back of the stones. With the stones, the Gauntlet sacrificed his life to kill Apocalypse to keep him from being able to do to the other galaxies that he had done to this one, but there was an unforeseen outcome of the Gauntlet using his powers. He created a new world. One where everyone was alive, set 9 years before the one he had come from.

No one else seemed to remember the old world.

It has been seven months since the X-Men stopped the Brotherhood from killing everyone at the summit on Ellis Island. Magneto has since then remained a prisoner of the Government while the rest of his team is still at large. Logan, having left the school after helping the X-Men has been spending these last months trying to regain his past memories while at the school Xavier is having side effects from his coma.

Tensions between ordinary humans and mutants have been at an all-time high since the Statue of Liberty incident. What the Brotherhood did has fueled the flames and fear of the everyday people. It seems every day someone is in the news telling a story about what a mutant had done with their powers. The accounts keep piling up to put the mutants in a bad light. Politicians and activist use these accounts to their advantage trying to force the Government to do something about it. People want them registered, People want them banned from schools and other public places their children attend, People want them locked away from everyone else. People even want them slaughtered. The news and politicians twist the facts in all of this to make the mutants in the wrong and the ordinary citizens in the right. It seems none of the networks are covering the growing violence against mutants.

No ones reported about the Mutants tossed away by society disappearing all over the US, entire colonies disappear overnight without a trace. Is this just the beginning of the act the Government is trying to pass against the mutants or is something else going on?

The weather wasn't going to hold out much longer, fall was sweeping in with cooler temps, leaves that looked like an exploding sunset and upcoming holidays. Skye knew she had a lot to be grateful for this year, after John had been taken and the battle with Trask. She was looking forward to much calmer days.

When the weather was nice, like today, Skye took a blanket, a box of toys and a basket for lunch, taking Little Lyria and finding a place in the backyard that wasn't occupied by random students. She'd spread the blanket out and let Lyria play, both mother, and daughter soaking up the sunlight while they could. Being outside gave her a chance to think. Was this the best place for them still? Could the mansion still offer that high level of protection that they'd sought for their daughter?

Skye still believed in the values set forth by the Brotherhood, mutant equality, but now, being a mom, she wasn't as eager to throw down in a fight. she had Lyria to think about, and John, they'd been pulled apart twice now, each time by the same man though that wouldn't be happening again.

"Mama..." Lyria's sweet voice pulled Skye back from her thoughts as she turned her blue eyes to her daughter, standing there in front of her while holding out a flower.

"Aww, precious, it's beautiful. Just like you!" Skye took the flower carefully, then reached out and pulled Lyria into her lap and kissing her soft, dark hair.

Who: Mercedes
With: Skye, Little Lyria
Where: XM/Backyard
When: Fri Oct 27, 2017/Afternoon

Mercedes walked out of the mansion and winced against the sun. She slipped on a pair of dark glasses and pulled up the hood of her black hoodie, which she wore over black jeans. A bit too warm for the day, but necessary. She remembered when she used to enjoy the sun, wear a bikini, get a tan. Those days were over, for a variety of reasons. She couldn’t wear a bikini anymore with all the scarring on her body. The sunlight didn’t actually really hurt her. It just made her...itchy. Uncomfortable. The Hunger inside of her writhing in protest.

That, at least, was a small benefit. The Hunger wasn’t as strong out in the sun as it was at night.

Spotting Skye sitting out and enjoying the hated sun with her daughter, Mercedes walked her way over.

“Hola,” Mercedes greeted. She liked little Lyria. The baby wasn’t old enough to have those dark fears and secrets that made the Hunger salivate, that made her want to feed. Unfortunately, like animals, the Hunger inside of Mercedes often made babies uncomfortable, like they could sense the darkness.

“Como estas, Lyria?” Mercedes asked, crouching down. She dug into her pocket and produced a small package of candy corn. Halloween was around the corner, and the things were all over the place.

Still snuggling her daughter, Skye looked up when she heard someone greet them and she offered the other woman a smile in greeting. "Hi." She replied, feeling Lyria snuggle tighter against her mother's chest. The toddler was clearly not as enthused with the newcomer as Skye.

Little Lyria peered out at Mercedes through dark curls, unsure if she wanted to answer the woman. She felt dark, cold, and Lyria didn't like that. With a glance up at her mother, who nodded, reached out slowly to take the offered package of candy. "Thank you." She said, her little voice quiet as she handed the plastic package to Skye, who opened it and held it for the little girl.

"How are you?" Skye asked the Latina woman as she crouched down. "Please sit." The young woman stated, glad to see the other woman who'd assisted her in rescuing her husband a few months ago.

“De nada,” Mercedes said to Lyria with a smile. She settled down on the grass next to them, though keeping a bit of distance between her and the toddler. She didn’t want to scare the kid.

“Doin’ alright,” Mercedes said with a shrug. “Sleep deprived, as always. Hungry.” She gave Skye a look. “Not that kind of hungry,” she assured. Skye had a lot of darkness herself, and the Hunger in Mercedes writhed with desire. Mercedes couldn’t help licking her lips before she tamped that feeling down, easier since she sat in the sunlight. “I missed lunch.” She gave a shrug of her covered shoulders. Mercedes had a great figure, but no one ever saw her show it off. She always went around in long sleeves and pants and high collars. “How you guys been, since...everything?” she asked.

Skye nodded, kissing the top of Little Lyria's dark curls, just breathing in that baby smell; soap, shampoo, and lotion. Sure, the toddler was nearly three by this point, hardly a baby by her standards but she'd always be Skye's baby, and that meant allowances for new baby smell.

Icy blue eyes turned to the Latina woman seated now across from her, though she noticed the small distance Diaz had put between them. That was wise, considering Mercedes's powers and her own should anything happen. There was also Little L to take note of as well, her power-dampening bracelet able to be removed if absolutely necessary.

There was a nod of understanding as Mercedes spoke. "There's extra food if you want, I always make more than I should when we do this." She explained, giving a glance toward the basket she'd brought out with them. "We're...doing okay, considering." She replied, not wanting to relive the hell that had been her husband's rescue from Trask's hands.

When: Fri Oct 27, 2017/Afternoon

Kevin was really lost in thought as he walked one of the many paths through the woods. His mind was constantly moving with thoughts rushing through it. Why wasn't he sleeping right? Why was he still at the school when he knew Selene was hunting him? What the fuck was he doing in the middle of the woods with a damn shovel? These thoughts all swirled around with others making a jumbled mess. The teenager had no memory of blowing off classes today and going into the woods with a shovel. He didn't even remember waking up. He left the shovel where he came to at. It was a reminder that something wasn't right with him.

Coming out of the trees behind the picnic he didn't seem to notice the two women and little Lyria there as he passed by. The boy ran a hand through his hair to get it out of the way only finally noticing them when Mercedes vanished. "Oh uh sorry for interrupting." More thoughts, more images, came to his mind and the teenager shook his head a bit trying to force them away. "I didn't know you were here. Sorry." Dunking his head a bit he turned to hurry away.

"You know, that's twice she's done that to Mommy..." Skye said, cuddling Little Lyria as Mercedes up and disappeared once again. The Latina woman had done it before on Skye, during the rescue to get John back from Boliver Trask. The toddler responded before moving up her nose before moving to give her mother and Eskimo kiss, which made Skye smile.

Her smile faltered slightly a moment later when Wither appeared out of the woods, a shovel in his hand and his thoughts so chaotic it was hard to pin one down. "You weren't interrupting..." She tried telling him as he started to walk off quickly. Little Lyria had also taken notice of the young man, whom she remembered coloring with her the night Ly-Ly had watched her. She liked him, and so, before Skye could get her hands back on her, the little girl got up and ran after Kevin, wrapping herself around one of his legs and looking up at him with big, dark blue eyes. "I love you, Kevin!" She declared with all of the wisdom and charm of a three-year-old.

The boys' attempt at fleeing was twatted by the toddler size rock that threw herself at his leg. Not expecting it or seeing it coming the boy stumbled when he tried to move that leg. He tensed up at the touch, feeling very uncomfortable at the innocent gesture. Kevin glanced down at the little kid who would eventually grow up to be a version of the Lyria he knew before remembering her Mother was right there watching this odd display of affection. Her Mother who may not know how she knew him. "Oh um yeah. We uh met the other night when Ly was babysitting..."

The young mutant reached up with his left hand and rubbed the back of his neck. "I brought over some of the Friday the 13ths and we watched them after the squirt went to bed." This was a bit awkward and he wasn't sure why.

Skye couldn't help but laugh quietly at her toddler-aged daughter as the little girl flung herself at the teen's jean-covered legs. A delicate, dark eyebrow lifted upward on Skye's brow as Kevin stated that he'd met the younger girl while her older version had been babysitting her recently. Oh, really now? The telepath's thoughts were invisible on her features as the young mother got up from the blanket and walked over, taking Little Lyria by one hand and trying to dislodge her from Kevin's legs.

"Ok, that's fine.." Skye said, now kneeling down to try and pry her daughter away, but the little girl had an iron-clad grap on the older boy's legs. "Seems you made rather the impression on my younger..." Skye stated, looking up at Kevin and giving him a smile. "You weren't there when John and I got home so, I don't see an issue if you want to come over when she's sitting again."

“I drew her a picture of a bunch of puppies. She acted like it was the best thing ever.” He wanted to move away when Skye got close, but instead he put that feeling of wanting to flee into a shrug as he spoke instead. “I figured it be best that I’m gone before that. I doubt Pyro would like to come home and find me there alone with Lyria. He doesn’t seem like the logical type.”

The voices got louder and more grouped together that was beginning to give him a migraine. The teen glanced the way he thought the voices were coming from to see just why it was so unusually loud outside today. “What is going on with everyone today? Ria has the right idea about going inside and watching a movie. Might not be as loud.” Kevin looked back at the two in time for the wind to blow an already dying leaf against his face. He reached up on reflex to push it away even as his mind told him not to bother since it would be dust now, but he noticed two things at once. The decay on the leaf stopped and it moved away without him physically touching it. The realization hit him at once and his gloved hand went into his jean pocket to find what he suspected. Another gem.

He suddenly wanted to back away and to get out of there. The urge was so strong that suddenly the toddler’s arms were carefully telekinetically moved away from his leg and both her and her Mom were gently pushed back enough to not be right in front of him. Kevin stood there looking pretty stunned at the action. “Uhhhh...I..uh need to go.” He turned quickly away from the two without giving an explanation and hurried his pace towards the school to try to get away from what just happened. Away from any questions that may end up being asked. “You should talk to your parents.” He called back over his shoulder to answer something he thought Skye had said just before this happened. “If I could call my Dad I would.”

"I'd wondered where that picture came from, it's on the fridge back in our quarters. I just assumed Ly did it." Splitting up her daughters' name in half and assigning half to each kept it just a little easier in Skye's mind. She nodded an understanding as to why the young man hadn't been there with Ly when they'd gotten back. Smart kid, definitely a smart kid.

Blue eyes narrowed curiously at the young man, first at his statement about noise. It didn't seem any louder outside than normal, not unless you were an untrained telepath, which Skye was not. She'd long ago built up vibrainium walls around her mind. Then, that leaf. Now she KNEW that wasn't normal, not for Kevin Ford. Now that...was odd.

"Wait..what?" She said, rising to her feet seconds later when Kevin all but bolted like a frightened jackrabbit after somehow telekinetically pushing mother and daughter back, his parting words being about talking to her parents. It'd been ages since she'd spoken to them and she'd been thinking about them not but a few minutes ago while watching Ria play in the sunlight. "Kevin! Wait!" Skye called after him, wanting to chase after him but knowing it was impossible with a toddler on her hip. Lifting a hang, Skye used her own TK to hopefully halt the boy's departing steps.
