In the spirit of all the departing, Haroun stops by Nate's suite with a gift and a few words.

And I fully resemble being in the mush-brained state! )

The X-Men land in Ushuaia and tackle Gideon's security detail, including some familiar faces from Vladivostok. Meanwhile, Gideon tries one last time to synch to Nathan's precognition - and is successful.

Which is precisely what Nathan wanted. In the process, Nathan discovers that what he didn't see is something he should have expected all alone. Or rather, someone.

Haroun and Alison are having Yet Another go-around on their wedding plans. Finally, mad inspiration strikes and they leap to implement it before anyone else can stop them.

Now don't you step on my blue suede shoes... )

Nathan stands on a rooftop in the snow and keeps an eye on things. He is possibly pouting just a little at the role he finds himself in, but doesn't let that stop him from doing his part of the job.

He had to just sit tight, be patient. Not something he was particularly good at. )

As the meeting starts, Gideon's security detail, delayed by the snow and rushing to meet their boss, runs into a spot of trouble. Cain doesn't precisely meet his match, but he does meet someone who can hold their own.

Just a friendly ambush. )

Haroun tackles the flyer in the group, focusing on keeping her from getting to her boss.

Why was it that every powered flyer but him had some sort of defensive bodyshield? )

Kurt finds someone who likes to play with knives.

It might have worked, if he wasn't dealing with a professional gymnast and teleporter. )

Alison takes on an energy-projector who is somewhat lacking in her follow-through - surprising, given her employer, but Alison takes full advantage of it.

Next time, don't play around. )

The X-Men's diversionary tactic works exceptionally well, leaving Gideon with precisely one mutant to synch to at the meeting site. He opens the box and gets a nasty surprise. Pete enjoys himself just a little, but sadly, doesn't get to have quite as much fun as he'd hoped.

Next time, I'm fucking travelling business class, alright? )

The two teams regroup at the Blackbird, and Scott and Alison take stock.

Everyone all right? )

Nathan and Pete hook back up and stop for a bit of a breather before heading back to the plane. Pete laments how minimal the violence was. Nathan gets a precognitive flicker and a nasty little idea as to how to rub Gideon's nose in things. It doesn't take much to talk Pete into it.

The rest of you got to have all the fun. )

Jane runs into Haroun and lets lose. Too bad he's not going to be able to tell anyone.

Wanda relaxes a little bit, not far from home, but is worried about her recent health, mental and otherwise. When she makes a decision to go see Charles, someone takes an exception.

~God money nail me up against the wall.~ )

Someone wakes up, but it's not Wanda.


God money don’t want everything he wants it all. )

Chthon gets the feel of the new legs--and body--but realizes he needs something more. Decided to create a new host needs someone else and he tries Wanda's charms out on Kurt.

~Head like a hole/Black as your soul.~ )

Despite Chthon's best efforts not to be noticed, Angie gets a flash that something isn't quite right.

You’re going to get what you deserve. )

With Kurt an unsuccessful attempt, Chthon realizes that there's someone else a lot more powerful to try and get things on with. Cain doesn't even realize what's hit him.

I’d rather die than give you control. )

Scott sounds the call.

~Bow down before the one you serve/You’re going to get what you deserve.~ )

And the X-Men heed it, much to Cain's boat house dismay and much to Cain's dismay. Chthon manages to make things go awry and flees off the mansion grounds.

God money let’s go dancing on the backs of the bruised. )

Storm is the first on the scene and Chthon finds himself/herself confronting people who are much more powerful than what was expected. Not that Storm has a better time of it.

God money’s not one to choose )

...where did Wanda go? And what on earth is going on?

~No you can’t take it/No you can’t take that away from me~ )

With Storm down, Sam comes in next. And things get interesting.

~Head like a hole/Black as your soul/I’d rather die than give you control.~ )

Haroun's turn and he manages to do a little better...but not much.

Bow down before the one you serve. )

Alison keeps her distance but manages to keep Chthon busy and distracted long enough.

You’re going to get what you deserve. )

Wanda manages to get a bit of a helping hand.

~Head like a hole/Black as your soul/I’d rather die than give you control.~ )

Jim is called on for a little more telepathic support and, despite everything, he and Nathan, and Charles, manage to do exactly what's needed.

You’re going to get what you deserve. )

In the end, Wanda and Chthon fight for the right to be there and Wanda goes that extra distance. And Lorna reacts just in time to save her not-quite-sister.

You know who you are. )

Marius stops by Nathan's office to hand in a more extensive version of his independent study proposal. Nathan is crankier than usual, and headache-plagued - neither of which he connects to the 'precog-be-gone medication' working its way out of his system. Fortunately, Angelo remembers that Nate with a headache is rarely a good thing. Unfortunately, he realizes this too late to do anything. Then there are precognitive visions getting shared and power feedback-loops and people reacting to things they don't understand and entirely too much random chaos. In the end, Angelo's the last man standing. Yay Angelo!

All the fault of a little pill... )

Haroun and Alison are kicking around their differing ideas for what kind of wedding they want to have. There's not much agreement here.

Knights in White Satin? )

Karolina ventures out of her room in search of food and runs into Haroun. They are introduced and an invitation to watch people beat each other up is extended and politely sort-of-but-not accepted.

Uh...where can I find a butter knife? )

XO and trainee discuss promotions after punching and kicking the crap out of each other. Shiro voices his doubts about himself, and Haroun tries to beat him over the head with some good advice.

That is during high school and college entrance exam seasons. And I am past those. Now I worry about some psychotic classmate losing it and shooting up my classroom. )

Haroun's made some changes in the ways he goes about his favorite pasttime. And, of course, his fiance gets to be the guinea pig. Likely she'll be feeling it tomorrow.

It would certainly be worth the ride... )

Nathan's lawsuit against Gideon has an unexpected consequence - well, not that unexpected, but what happens after that, as Nathan makes Val Cooper the beneficiary of six months' worth of research, is going to be a very unpleasant surprise for his not-so-beloved uncle.

Your focus is too narrow. I started looking beyond his role in Mistra months ago. )

Shaken up by the conversation with Val, Nathan goes for a less-than-successful flight in his new exoskeleton. Thankfully, Haroun accompanies him, not just to critique his technique but also to urge him to see this as the victory it is.

No loose ends, no waking up in the middle of the night wondering. )

Haroun goes to Nate for a little advice on V-day shopping. The two of them wind up at the mall, where flowers, lingerie, sleepwear, and teddy bears are purchased. Then there is steak.

I'm getting married. That changes everything. )

Haroun's practicing with his power in the back yard. He offers Jennie the view from a few hundred feet up, then proceeds to make a damned fool of himself smack-dab into the lake.

That's why you train above water. )

Backdated to Wednesday and set earlier in the day, before Haroun's unfortunate encounter with the lake. After a Danger Room session, he and Nathan head upstairs to find some lunch and run into Jim. Philosophical discussion follows. And soup.

No soup for you! Well, yes, soup for you. )

Haller runs into the source of Alison's pre-matrimonial bliss. As it turns out, Nathan is not the only staff member who excells at inducing migraines -- but then, Haroun is talented like that.


It's only been a few weeks. They're probably trying to lure me into a false sense of security. )
[identity profile] x-cable.livejournal.com
Nathan wanders down to see Cain at the boathouse. They have a brief conversation about Gideon, Cain quotes 'The Untouchables', and then they head off to join Haller at Harry's. Lucky Jim, getting to drink with these two.

Cain, stop punching your wall. )

Much later that night, after returning from Harry's, Nathan heads up to the flyer's platform with something very specific in mind. Haroun, who happens to be up there - enjoying the view? Mourning bad ring-wearing choices? - gets to witness something rather remarkable.

Hope springs exulting on triumphant wing. )
[identity profile] x-dazzler.livejournal.com
Morning. In which Haroun discovers what exactly has in fact been making Alison so fretful at times around him, for the past months. To say that the discovery of the ring leaves Alison a mite shocked is something of an understatement.

You've gone about this completely backwards, you know. )

Haroun goes to get a checkup after being exposed to low-power EMP fields. Turns out the new design handled it like a pro, and Forge lets slip who they modelled the new kinesthetic data from.

I can't tell you any more than that. )
