Arctica gets up goes to the bar and returns with a bottle of vodka. First she tops her own glass off and then offers the bottle to Tara. She laughs a little at the look of the bottle in Tara's hands. It was a real first showing of the teenage girl Katya was. "Now that is worth a picture I think. Can you work your phone being that big?" She asked with a slight smile.

Arctica nods " Da, friends could be nice." She says then holds up her glass. "Nostrovia!" She says and takes a long drink from her cup. "Ah the burning feels good sometimes." She says as the drink brings fire down her throat only to be cooled immediately.

She didn't use the door.

Or, at least, sh didn't seem to use the door.   The black girl with the shaved head was just sort of suddenly there, as Arctica and Tara shared their drink.

Kumoti wasn't in uniform.  She wasn't on the clock.   For her purposes, a simple combination of a black top, black tights and boots, with some silver accents.  her colors, her typical style.  conservative, perhaps, but the clean lines gave her the appearance of uniquely capable.

"It's quieter than I expected."  she commented.  I don't think a lot of people find their way in here unless they're looking.

OOC: She didn't use the door... she swarmed in through the cracks... reformed at the bar proper.

Tara downs the vodka in one gulp. The bottle proved to be just larger than a shot glass for her. Tara was no stranger to hard liquor, but the bite of the vodka does make her cough a little. She comes up smiling. Whether Arctica would prove to be friend, rival, or both, at the moment, Tara was having fun.

She turns to inspect the newcomer when Aisha makes her present known.  Fortunately, she had not seen the other woman enter, for spiders triggered something primal in her. Instead, she sizes up Aisha in under a second.   There was something dangerous in the newcomer, so the giant teen decided not to open with her usual snark.

"I don't think we've found anything yet, except the bottom of this bottle. What do you happen to be looking for?" Tara did not give her name, and she waited for Aisha to offer hers.

A relief to boredom, mostly.  Kumoti said.  But a good bourbon would do.  She made a face. I don't know how you can stand that stuff. Vodka, I mean   Of course, she also made a not dissimilar face when she actually drank her bourbon...

Arctica laughs as Tara coughs a little. She was having a little fun here at least. Tara did remind her of the stuck up girls from her school but she was not acting like they did to her so that made her ok for now. Arctica looked to the new girl as Tara started talking to her. She raised an eye brow when the girl questioned vodka. " I suppose it is an acquired taste of those who can take tough things. " she says with a smile in her Russian accent.

"I think a respite from boredom is what we may have a bit in common here. Maybe it is how we will go looking about for it. How do you usually relieve your boredom?" she sips her vodka. "How about getting some bourbon and join us? There could be plenty of room here." she said waving to Tara's giant form.

Tara slides over, somewhat awkwardly, to make room for the newcomer.

She does not need to consider Arctica's question for long. "Ever since my powers manifested," she says, "I've had so much fun just scaring the shit out of people. Those guys who used to think they controlled me? I sat on one of their cars. The football player who thought he had a right to date me?  Turns out that three of me were a little more than he could handle.  And that joke of a school I went to until last year?  Without even having to say a word, the teachers and staff pretty much let me do whatever I wanted.  I ruled that fucking place." For a moment, Tara seems almost wistful. But not for long. Even with her powers and status, school was still full of rules. And she was so over rules now.

"I like to explore.   There's a whole huge network of tunnels and abandoned buildings and shit all over the place.  And I can go almost anywhere now. "  Aisha said.  "But I've got to be a little more careful.  I get Anarchy as a dominant philosophy.   But I don't go in for the any publicity is good publicity' approach.   I want to cultivate my image, build my myth. So, for now... mystery suits me better than exposure."

Aisha grabbed a glass and filled it again.  "Call me Kumoti."  she joined the others.  I don't do anything quite so cool as controlling an element or turning into a triptych of bombshells.  Mostly, I just poison people.

Arctica smiled as she listened to Kumoti. "Well Kumoti, I am Arctica and this as you may know is Tara Kim. Those tunnels you know of sound pretty fun as does some poisoning. What kind of image are you looking for? One of those whose results are found but never seen in the action of? What I like is the be known and feared. That seems fun but I will not discount yours as a certain allure. Care to elaborate on what your capable of?"

Kumoti shrugged.  "As I said... I'm not in your class."  She cupped her hands together in front of her and closed her eyes for a moment.  When she opened her hands, there was a small, jagged looking piece of bluish-black glass.  It looked like obsidian.  She laid it on the bar-top and set it spinning, as if it were a coin or a children's toy.

It's a contact paralytic.  Short-term.  Really fucks up your nervous system.   she smiled, a little pride showing through.  That and... uh... well, I guess I bounce around a lot. The city is my playground.  I was trying to break into this gig, even before I got Ananasi's Kiss.  Now, I'm just faster, stronger and more resilient.

Of course she wasn't giving the full run-down of what she could do.   She'd only just met Arctica and the Tara Kims.  She wasn't going to go reveal her big secrets right off the bat.  With luck, she wouldn't ever have to make the big reveal.  Eventually, they'd probably learn about the clutter, but maybe she could prevent them from getting too creeped out first.

"Poison?  That's pretty cool," Tara said, somewhat impressed. "I can see how knocking someone out in a hurry might solve a lot of problems." A half dozen such problems flashed across her mind as she reverted to her tripartite self. While she enjoyed the power position of great size, it was difficult to have a normal conversation when you had to look down all the time.

"But tunnels? Ew," she added. "Sounds too much like camping and hiking, only with more dirt.  Big surprise: dirt's not my thing."

Arctica laughs a bit " Pretty neat indeed. He can you make it less toxic? I know some who might like that kind of thing for a high.." She said with a smirk.  Arctica starred abit at Aisha. She seemed a bit more relate able then Tara to her. Judging on the looks of the spectrum here she was probably in the middle a between the two. " Maybe some time you can show us these tunnels and we can have some fun. Nothing like punking some punks to blow off some steam." She says with a smirk.

She looks to Tara " But tunnels can get you into places your not suppose to be. That can be fun. Besides they probably aren't all full of dirt... I could make them full of ice." She says with a wink.

Re: [IC] Six Supervillains walk in a Bar...
Kumoti shrugged.  "Don't know.  I've been experimenting on variations.  I think can probably make it less... she made a curious gesture, " effective.   So far as I know, it's not toxic.  I mean, like, not deadly.

She stood and moved to join the other girls, moving a with the careful grace of a dancer or gymnast.  I don't know much about what I can do with it.  Not yet.

Re: [IC] Six Supervillains walk in a Bar...
Tara takes a cocktail napkin,rolls it into a tight braid, and pokes the crystal on the table. "You can scare the shit out of people with it, that's what," she says. "People are scared enough of violence when, for instance, they think I might get careless and step on them, but poison?  That's like contemplating your own death face to face.  Nobody likes that."

Tara had come to a decision. The other girls were wildly different from her. She could not contemplate the worlds they lived in, and she was sure they had no idea what her world was like. Be that as it may, she decided to hang with them, at least for a while. They were different, and  interesting, and that meant a lot.

Waving a bill in the air, she called for another bottle of vodka. She was barely feeling the bottle she had chugged earlier, as her giant body metabolized food and drink fast.

Arctica laughed as Tara order another bottle. "That is the spirit! She says with a cheer and takes a swing for her glass. Unlike Tara she was getting a little buzz. She looks at Aisha. " You seem rather light on your feet." She says and thinks for a moment looking at the two other girls. "Why arent we just a multi-cultural lot." She said with another laugh. "So, It seems none of us have done anything major. Maybe sometime we could team up and have some major fun."

Re: [IC] Six Supervillains walk in a Bar...
Aisha smiled, her grin unfeigned.  Light on my feet. she nodded.  Yeah.  I have some other things going on, but yeah... mostly, I can't sit still.  I need to focus or I'm all over the place.   My shrink used to say I had some real anger-management issues.  Running burns that up... And if I can smear some corporate names in the process... well hell yeah!

--
OOC: Hah.  I just went and reviewed my character sheet.  It looks like I dropped the poisoned shards from her lineup.  She has shards, and a paralytic touch...   so, i guess for now, she's lying.  Well, I guess that'll come back to bite her later on...

"Whatevs," the Taras say, shrugging, though her casual words belie a twinkle in her eyes that suggests she would like nothing better than to cause a little damage.  "Yeah, my shrink tried to pin a bunch of labels on me like  'narcissistic' and 'psychopathic.'  I don't do shrinks anymore. He was glad to see me go. Turns out being threatened with stomping caused him to lose control of his bowels.  A sad little man..."  The Taras share a smile at the memory.  They look ready to stomp the bar right now, though given the locale, even she had to realize what a bad idea that might be.

"Shrink?" She says with a raised eyebrow and sips her drink again. " I have never done Shrinks. The school counselor talked to me once... but that was it." She said with a shrug. "Corporate name smearing? That does sound kind of fun. Like break in some where and expose all their secrets."

Tara rolls her eyes when Arctica wonders about her psychologist.  "Daddy dearest thought that I had issues I needed to work through.  He wanted me to be a good little drone and go to medical school. As if.  Breaking in someplace sounds like fun. I don't really care what we do once we're there, as long as I get to have fun with the 'breaking' part."

Arctica laughs a bit. " Sounds fun. I think you made the right call. I mean could you imagine being a doctor? Listening to people complain all day? Work always calling you and seeking to own you. And no one would really appreciate you." She sips her drink again.

Arctica looks around then at the other two. " I have notice it is a bit light on the men here. Seems odd... or maybe they are just scared."

"I have that effect on boys. Kumoti said, with a slight smirk.  "They cant' keep up, then they get that macho "but I'm not even trying thing.   Hell, I'm revved like a mmuscle car with nowhere to go.

Re: [IC] Six Supervillains walk in a Bar...
Tara laughs at the others' comments. She had felt much the same way.  "Before my powers manifested, I always used to look at the boys--you know, the popular ones--with such dopey stars in my eyes.  Now, they can't handle what I've become. They look and ogle and drool. I hear them talking about what they would do with me on a date.  But most don't have the guts to approach me, and those that do? I make a game out of how quickly I can get them to pee their pants in fear."  She chuckled to herself. She had been speaking literally.  "Sounds like the tree of us could do some serious damage to the male psychje if we ever teamed up."

"hah!  Kumoti couldn't help but laugh in recognition.  Bravado?  First boy I ever played around with was so clumsy... couldn't get his hands down far enough.  But he told everybody he'd bagged me.  Their rep is more important than reality."

Arctica shrugs with a smile. " i have hada few... pleasent experences but now." She had mist come from an uplifted hand. "Now I do find myself encountering self assured jerks and I like letting them feel the chill." She says with a light laugh.

" I do think we could really mess with some guys, and it would be pretty fun. As I said too bad there are none here."

Re: [IC] Six Supervillains walk in a Bar...
One of the Tara's laughs at Aisha's joke, and vodka snorts up her nose.  The others flinch at the sensation.

At Arctica's prompting, she glances around the bar.  "Figures there's no guys here. Most male supers probably do their dating in front of a mirror. No different from the normal guys I know in that respect.  Yeah, all about them." One pulls out her phone, looking for clubs where the three of them could do some damage.
