Skater Punk turns his head a bit sideways.
"'Whaddya Think' is a curious question from a mind reader. Also I do not think that woman's name is Annie Oakley. Logic dictates it is Myer, as that is what her jacket says, unless of course she is wearing a borrowed jacket. Neither are our names Bill or Ted.
I am Ian, pleased to meet you... umm... female dude."

Todd's brain thinks how wonderful it is to be in the presence of bona fide superheros, and he's overjoyed about actually being helpful on his first outing.

What comes out of his mouth is, "Yeah, uh, like, um. Kinda. Sure. Uh-huh."

Silently he mentally kicks himself, over and over and over.

Female dude? I think I am getting old..it's like kids today are speaking a foreign language and I am only 28!

Look,  I would explain who Annie Oakley, Bill, Ted, and how I  am a polite telepath who only snoops when asked or it is an emergency...BUT they are hauling Tropic Thunder away.

First time uh? Yeah I remember my first time...I got a microphone shoved in my face and I was totally like that talking barbie...you know the one that said "Math is hard"...yeah. You get used to it though, and you did good. There is a bright future for you int he business. Oh, shoot... Myers! Wait! I need to see him to look into his mind!

OOC: sing Telepathy 6
19:46, Today: Nereid rolled 1,4 using d6,d6. If I could read Thunder's mind.  1-4 = -3 19:46, Today: Nereid rolled 1,4 using d6,d6. If I could read Thunder's mind.

[OOC: Um, it's Tropic Lightning. Tropic Thunder is a cheezy movie. :P]

Nereid:
Tropic Lightning (being at present in love with you and concerned for your wellbeing) is willing to open his mind to you, so no roll is necessary. Sgt. Myers has him cuffed face down on the street, still bound in the insulating cable. He cranes his neck to look up at you when he hears what you say to her.

<<You can see into my mind? Cool! Thought I felt somethin' earlier, when we first met... Kinda like a tickle in my head.>> The expression in his eyes is full of concern. <<You OK? I didn't mean to hurt you...>>Tropic Lightning's surface thoughts are easy enough to read. Deeper, though, things get to be a bit of a jumble.

Todd & Ian:
Detective Smith strides up. "Ian! Making new friends, I see." He eyes Sgt. Myers, with Tropic Lightning. "They won't be able to hold him." He mutters.

Todd recognises Detective Smith.

Tired of acting like a gibbering idiot, he chooses silence, and looks like a grinning fool instead.

OOC: This is where I am being too cute for my own good. I wanted Nereid to misunderstand his name and equate it with the movie but I forgot to use the correct name in my OOC posts. I will try to keep it straight, which will be a challenge if I keep this schtick of her giving nicknames based on pop culture references going.


Nereid shakes her head as their minds join.

Wow...his memories are fragmented there are gaps....but this is what I've got .

She begins to speak in a bad impersonation of Counselor Troi from Star Trek.

I have images, Flashes...odd, disjointed....

she drops the impersonation

me...wow I do look cute in this outfit or maybe the emotion control is blurring his memories.

and that's it...

I hope that makes more sense to one of you than it does me. I think he was homeless and got drunk and his powers manifested but little to no details.


She turns to Detective Jones

So I haven't seen this guy before, has he "acted out" before today?

"Curious, why are you all calling Detective Jones Detective Smith? Is it a human custom that I have overlooked, the changing of one's name in conversation?"

Detective Jones responds. "Yeah, off and on for the past forty years. Ever since the CIA got done with him."

Sgt. Myers and the recovering Metro PD officers are stuffing Tropic Lightning into the back of a squad car.

"It's a good thing you came along when you did. He can be... a little tough to handle."

In reply to DainXB - GM (msg # 51):

"CIA, huh? So he was a experiment or something? Well, I think he was very drunk before he lost it...maybe you guys can get him into AA or something?"

She turns to the helpful, if not very fashionable duo.

"Well...I guess we are suppose to exchange contact information maybe get some coffee? I dunno this is my first real Team up.

I kinda met that Tidal guy once...well this sea monster attacked the beach and he and I..well he fought it off and I worked crowd control. then he didn't even say "hi".

Anyway, so what's next? and you
*pointing to Ian*  don't ask why a telepath has to ask such a question...cause I am a lady.

"Well, this is classified, so keep it on the Don Ho, as they they say. I am working on a case and it may be good experience for Todd to help out. I could also use someone who has a good grip on the cool schoolyard slang, if you can dig up that which I am putting down Nereid.
I need to look into Southern Shore. It's a corporation that has been buying up shiploads of steel, plus titanium, niobium, and some very high-end electronics. There is a boat I am interested in that was chartered from them by a man named Taggart, who was supposed to have been associated with the University of Hawaii. However, there is no Professor Taggart at U. of H."

In reply to Todd (msg # 55):

I am in as well.

Turning to Todd

Dude, how many people know who you are? I bet you'll find you have much less of an identity to protect than you think.

But, lets see what can you do other than bending fire hydrants (since that make a lousy name "hydrant bender lad" doesn't roll off the tongue) what's your favorite color and or favorite thing to do or read about?

I have found a combination of those things yields like 99% of all great super code-names.

In a monotone voice Amm-Fibian says "Woah, Burnt... She really got your number, no identity man. Good one Nereid!"

He places a finger to his chin in contemplation.

"Then, going by that formula, I shall be the Sunset Orange Problem Solver!"

[OOC: I hesitate to intrude on this conversation :), but I will note in passing that the name 'Taggart' rings a bell for Nereid. There's an antique dealer named Sheldon Taggart, who's been trying to arrange a meeting with you in your secret identity. He used to be an archaeologist, before he went into 'private practice'.]

The Metro PD squad car with Sgt. Myers and Tropic Lightning leaves the scene, escorted by one of the other police cars. The remaining two cops are directing traffic and clearing the way for the fire department.

Firefighters are checking the restaurant to make sure that the blaze is completely out. Eventually, the city Power and Water people will be out to replace the transformer--in the mean time, the power is still out for several blocks in each direction.

In reply to DainXB - GM (msg # 58):

It doesn't roll off the tongue...but I can dig sunset orange problem solver....or maybe  Detective or Operative

The Sunset Orange Operative sounds totally awesome. You need to wear the color though...otherwise people will get confused
.

She turns to Todd

Now Dude I was not trying to be harsh...it's just I keep the mask cause I like it. But once I bumped into my students and I didn't have the mask and not one recognized me. I their archeology 100 Proff rode a righteous wave and then saved them from a group of bank robbers. I knew someone had recognized me. Nope not one. People are really oblivious. I mean unless you are like a celeb or something. Your not Ryan Goslin are ya?

He is soolo cute.


Then she zones out for a second...

Oh shoot Taggart..Taggart...Bueller.  the name 'Taggart' rings a bell for Nereid. There's an antique dealer named Sheldon Taggart, who's been trying to arrange a meeting with me. He used to be an archaeologist...but he got out of the academy.

In reply to Todd (msg # 61):

Okay, you two and *pointing at Todd* especially you...let's show a little bit of imagination with the names.

I guess i need to educate:

Color is good but only necessary in case the original name is blah. Like beetle, hornet, cougar.

Now for you, I know you are strong...and stuff. You like sci-fi.. So go with that

Prototype, paragon, Genome.

The purple Grasshopper (only if you can jump with those strong legs) .... See?

Now should I lose the mask and awesome wetsuit and visit Taggart in my "secret identity" or what?
