After the ceremony, Nathan ducks out to get some air and to try to clear his head. Haroun tags along to keep an eye on his friend.

It's surprisingly peaceful out here. )

Alison gets the psychic distress call, and scrambles her team.

The wolf is at the door. Awaiting instructions. )

Haroun goes to the dentist to get his teeth fixed from his encounter with Mr Soviet-Era Cinderblock Wall. Alison goes with him. Fluffy McFluff-Fluff the Fluffth.

Couple of days, I'll be good as new. You know it, I know it. )

The Blackbird arrives in Hungary and is greeted by Istvan Barath, the Minister of Mutant Affairs and an old friend of Charles. He has some less-than-good news for Scott and Ororo about how the police are handling their cornered serial killer.

When bureaucracy works against you... )

At the apartment building where Veres/Nimrod has been cornered, the X-Men begin to search as the police finally begin to evacuate the tenants. Kurt perhaps wishes for an image inducer.

How do you say 'I am not a demon' in Hungarian? )

On another floor, Wanda finds herself in perfect position to react when Veres finally reveals himself. Not all the tenants on that floor have been evacuated, and Wanda has to resort to some risky tactics to protect the innocent.

An incompetent landlord is sometimes a good thing. )

So what did happen to knock out the X-Men's telepathic switchboard? Also, Bobby and Shiro, along as trainee observers, get a chance to step in and perform under pressure.

The tale of a ballistic coatrack... )

Final confrontation-time. Things do not go well for Scott, who's the first to find Veres after he gets away from Wanda, but with the addition of Haroun and Kylun to the equation, the balance shifts. Still, Veres doesn't go down easily.

The hunter at bay. (Eventually.) )

Haroun and Alison hit the mat for a little hand-to-hand work. Therapeutic, in a way, and progress is assuredly made. Sat early Tuesday morning.

You done, or do you think you can worm your way out of my leglock? )

Madelyn wanders by and stops for a chat with her gym buddy. As conversation proceeds, it's obvious she's aware of a secret being kept, but respects Alison's right to keep it. A challenge is made.

Got time for a break, or should I go away and pester the kids some more about the perils of sun cancer? )

Shortly after the Blackbird touches down, Haroun and Scott assess the damage. None of the testosterone-laced nastiness from their last conversation is in evidence.

Broken-winged Blackbirds and other sad, sad things... )

Alison indulges in a favorite habit of hers and gets found out this time. Of course, tripping and falling flat on her butt might have something to do with the whole 'being caught in the act' thing. 100% fluff.

Alison Blaire, were you checking me out? )
[identity profile] x-cyclops.livejournal.com
After these emails, Haroun heads upstairs to get some lunch and runs into Scott. After these emails last night, they are not precisely each other's favorite people. They do a whole lot of snarling and talking past each other, and Scott finally pulls rank rather shamelessly.

Well, no, they don't actually come to blows, but... )

Haroun catches GW before he heads back into New York. They talk about Nathan, about Haroun's parents, and about parades.

Have ourselves a little Kill Whitey parade or something. )

Sunday afternoon, Nathan runs into Haroun, who hasn't glanced at the team board yet today. Haroun's response to the news is not altogether unexpected, but it doesn't meet with much enthusiasm from Nathan's direction.

Between who you are and who you could be )

A little later, Jean follows up on her decision from last night and comes upstairs to check on Nathan. She is horrified to find out what happens, but manages to master the homicidal urges and offers a few words of wisdom.

Between how it is and how it should be )

There's a change to the usual mission routine for Alison and Haroun. Having kept the home fires burning, so to say, Alison is there to greet him as he returns from the mission in Brazil. And good for her, she manages to mostly hide how badly she took his absence.

Jetstream, XO of X-Men Black, is off-duty as of right now. )

Inside the school, two of the young hostages are clinging to their courage when rescue appears, quite literally from above.

Youth holds no society with grief. -Euripides )

After all the shooting is done, Kylun notices a suspicious pair in the crowd outside and gives chase.

The fearful face usually betrays great guilt. -Seneca )

Scott and Haroun are catching their breath and taking stock of a job well done when Sam relays some rather alarming news from the mansion.

You cannot tailor-make the situations in life, but you can tailor-make the attitudes to fit those situations. -Ziglar )

Meanwhile, as they fix the school's roof, Nathan and Lorna talk about the events of the evening, and the upcoming changes in her life. Then Nathan hears the news and tries to fly home. Seriously!

We must always change, renew, rejuvenate ourselves; otherwise we harden. -Goethe )

On the flight back, Haroun deals very well with a rather agitated Nathan.

Teach us delight in simple things, and mirth that has no bitter springs. -Kipling )

Getting closer to their destination, Scott talks to Bobby, who's sitting the coms shift, and discovers that he's not in danger of murder-by-Scotswoman just yet.

Endurance is one of the most difficult disciplines. -Buddha )

Prior to lifting off for Rio, Sam lets Scott know that he would prefer a supporting role in today's potential drama.

Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that faith is his twin brother. -Gibran )

During the flight, Scott and Kylun discuss fanaticism, idealism, and pragmatism, and some of the combinations of the above.

The worst vice of a fanatic is his sincerity. - Wilde )

On site, Scott meets the police captain in charge, and finds out that he's dealing with a pragmatic man - and a situation worse than he expected.

The margin is narrow, but the responsibility is clear. -Kennedy )

Haroun and Scott look over the blueprints of the school and come up with a plan, to which Scott adds a last-minute and possibly inspired twist.

Do what is right, though the world may perish. -Kant )

Meanwhile, Nathan and Lorna scout the building with the help of their powers. The parallels to another situation in the not-too-distant past are hard to ignore.

Nothing can resist the human will that will stake even its existence on its stated purpose. -Disraeli )

Haroun, his vision improving, comes down to check on the Blackbird. Scott is still working, trying to sort out the problem with the autopilot. The two of them have a rambling conversation about the plane, Alison, and other subjects.

Man, if we need to get Nathan to lift the plane again he's going to get all pissy. I can just hear it now. )
