Let me rephrase: I thought I had superspeed.

Jennings

Jennings paused, trying to reestablish his presence in the here and now rather than the nowhere and never..

"Can you hear me? I need to tell you all something. Anyone something." It's an odd fear, the dead man confirming that he is indeed gone..
Reminder: the innocent and insane can always see him. It takes him an effort to be observed otherwise.

All can assume that Jennings is making sufficient effort to be seen and heard. However, ignoring him is quite easy and doing so means you neither see nor hear him.

Yeah, I know, it`s a power every married man wishes he had. :lol: 8)

Haunter

Haunter frowned as he heard the disembodied voice. " It seems the spirit speaks again...tell me, ghost, what do you want to tell us?"

"I'm not a ghost. Yet. I hope. I am likely very mistaken.

"Pieces. Fragments disjointed. Floating on water as the image resolves. The pictures develop in solution.

"The king stands tall but in the shadows lies a knife pointed at his back.

"A burning cloud of death and mutation is near. The scent of *sniffsniffs* the life of cars?

"Stacked gifts, waiting for a last Christmas, all for a single very good boy.

"The bear, A woman's name but not a woman, eager to be released while the bulls stand still, hemmed in by the sheep.

*a pause*

"None of this makes sense. Why? Why do the pictures not come together and show a movie?

The Canadian

"English? French? Do you speak either of these languages?"


Fleur de Lys

The Quebecois agent is slightly more empathic than the Canadian.

"Please. Can you focus? I have read your file - yes, you already have a file - and I am able to tell you that you were exposed to whatever is creating super beings."

It's hard to resist those pouty - botox. or is it colagen? those lips can't be real - lips. Jennings has a clear image of the sultry agent and it serves to remind him of one thing... his girlfriend back at HQ...

Jennings

The scattered man tries to bring himself together again, "English yes. French non. Frog yes. Are they the same thing? Pouvez vous parler ribbit? Non?"

He turns his eyes desperately towards Fleur de Lys, "3 and 2 and 3, all 4s, 25 years of age, traitor to family for greater good of Canada. Gauntlets, capable of powerful electric shocks. Two credit cards, one rarely used, the other consistently overcharged. My goodness, the movies you watch..."

His eyes start to drift away as he does, heading out towards where the cargo lorries are lined up to head out..blockaded by the evacuated workers.

"Mon dieu," Durocher says, he seems too stressed to be able to see or hear David, but he follows your gazes and makes a leap of logic. "Loading docks... there`s a shipment ready to move.

"Or be deployed."

OOC: I'm assuming Quickdraw is still exploring? Any results on that?

In the interests of moving along the plot, I'm including the rather cryptic notes from Bladewind below. Hopefully, you can make more sense of them than I could.

"I'm not a ghost. Yet. I hope. I am likely very mistaken.

"Pieces. Fragments disjointed. Floating on water as the image resolves. The pictures develop in solution.


"The king stands tall but in the shadows lies a knife pointed at his back.
- Durocher is on the up and up, he seems to be coerced

"A burning cloud of death and mutation is near. The scent of *sniffsniffs* the life of cars?
- The gas station reference was a physical proximity and genuine fear of a big boom

"Stacked gifts, waiting for a last Christmas, all for a single very good boy.
- There is a pallet of crates in the loading area with addressed to an individual instead of a company.

"The bear, A woman's name but not a woman, eager to be released while the bulls stand still, hemmed in by the sheep.
- There is a truck in the parking lot that wants to leave. All others are on stand by, but one driver wants out. His truck is currently blocked (like all the others) by the evacuees.
- You can identify the fidgety driver. But he is not walking near a truck.
- Said driver is cursing in what might be Russian.
- The name tag/ badge at his waist is a woman's name.


*a pause*

"None of this makes sense. Why? Why do the pictures not come together and show a movie?

Only thing I want to add is about the gas station - Spectrum had picked up on that during the phone call he was listening to and was worried about him making a threat (or seemed to be). It was just a reference that the plant itself is literally across the street from two stations and brawling supers + gas station = bad combo.
