Uncanny Ultimate X-Men (530) Revelations (One Shot)
Shortly after the X-Men defeat Raven Darkholme and her nefarious plot, Gold team is returned home to Xavier's School for the Gifted.

Eric Hunter calls his teams into the war room below the mansion proper. He also asks his long time friend T.K. Owens and long time rival Jeff Reynolds.

He stands, his iconic mask in place, though something is very different about Eric Hunter, something few would notice outright.

Beside him stands the newest X-Man, Ororo Munroe, who looks stunning despite a week of captivity. To a careful eye, the distance between them would be inappropriately short.

Across the table from those two sits Terry Cassidy. She seems to be upset. She had doubted the Gold team's innocence before it was proven. She couldn't shake the images of the two Weapon Plus facilities they'd raided.

Kurt Wagner was dangling from the lights above seemingly in a gregarious mood, though those close to him will see it's an act. To a careful observer he seems distracted by dark thoughts.

Cho Kazuya is sitting near the center of the left hand side of the table, a laptop open and on his Facebook page, he seems relaxed as always.

Beside him, smiling, is Professor Charles Xavier. The man is aware of all the grim thoughts of the others, but is not allowing them to weigh on the joy of having his Students back safe.

 Eric took in the view, all of his friends back. Strangely enough, there was never a moment during his incarceration that he'd even considered his team wouldn't pull through. His posative mood, however, was slowly ebbing away as time with the Reaper put it's tendrils back on his heart and mind.

He finished up his small talk with Ororo, a smile hidden behind his mask, disappointing that he felt slightly more empty than he had during their previous talks.

"Right," he said, clearing his throat to get everyone's attention. "You lot are bloody amazing, we did a good thing today. We got a very real win, and saved countless lives. No one can deny it. We saved the bloody President on National television. I'm sure Fox News will make us look bad doing it, but the rest of the bloody world found out from us that there was a bloody plot to use mutants as weapons of mass destruction. Public opinion is going to change, that I promise you. And we have you lot to thank." he meant every word. He was proud of the work they'd done.

 Xavier listened as Eric congratulated the team. Then decided to add his own praise.

 "I cannot express enough thanks to Blue team, their efforts and the difficulties they'd faced were great and yet they managed to persevere. Their unique skills are what made salvaged this whole situation. But a special place in my heart goes to Kurt Wagner, Tiberius Owens and Jeffery Reynolds, who put their lives on hold to come and help my X-Men." he smiled warmly.

"Aye, a cheer for Tiberius an 'e's mates fer all their efforts!" Terry cheered, a smile shot in T.K.'s direction.

 Kurt smiled a true, warm smile at that. He'd missed being the target of Xavier's praise.

"You are too kind, Professor, ve only did vat Eric vould do in our place."

"That you came to our aide after so long means a lot to Eric, though I think we all know he'd nevah be sayin' so." Oror said with a grin, taking the seat to Eric's right.

He stood in the corner sipping coffee, Scott was glad to have had such a major victory accomplished on his watch. He felt he may have broken through to the vets that there would be no reason for secrets among them much longer. With more freedom of information they could begin to take down the rest of the Hellfire Club, but for now it would be good to take the moment to celebrate. Maybe now his brother would lay off his case about being a "terrorist". He wondered if Rachel had seen the coverage of him saving the American president. He would have to call her later.

"Does this mean we don't have to hear any more speeches about how the X-men do things?" He asked in a half-serious tone.

"Don't get ahead of yer self, bub. You're still green between the ears." Logan said, limping in with Remy in tow. "Elf." he said, nodding in Kurt's direction before taking a seat next to Cho.

"Don't mind him mon ami, he jus' don' like it when someone gotta rescue his hairy butt." Remy looked like hell. He was bruised and bleeding in numerous places, and his clothes were tattered.

TK notices the smile of the beautiful Terry and shoots her a wink. He turned from said wink to notice everyone in the room looking at him. He blushes and lowers his gaze.

He realised that the veterans played no small part in making this all happen, but the new members needed most of the praise.

"Eh, i know dis is 'sposed to be all hugs n' puppies but what about nate?" Jeff said grimly. Knowing all too well that once you go that far, you may never come back.

A look of confusion crosses Eric's face.
"What about Nate?"

Kurt looks uncomfortably back and forth between TK and Jeff, not wanting to be the first to say it.

"Well, it seems I came in at the most interesting moment..." Emma says, sitting down beside Logan and grinning. "Out with it boys, we do so love drama."

A look of dread washes over Jeff's face, not looking forward to talking about the incident again. "Uh, well, ya see..."  Jeff seems to be stuttering worse than Cho. "I saw nate wit dis girl, she kinda remided me a little of logan. Well dey killed dat wraith guy."

Jeff's averts his gaze and refuses to look Eric in the eye.

Before anyone one asks, Logan starts laughing.

"It's a new flamin' record. Impulse waited a whole five minutes before he pulled his usual shit."
Logan slow claps.
"Logan, maybe now is not th-"
"No, Chuckie. Now is the damn time. We got a win, a legit win. The first flamin' thing we can be proud of since we won the goddamn war in San Marco and I ain't lettin' Dante's Inferno here ruin that." he snarled.
"Logan, if what he's saying is true th-" *SNIKT* Logan cut Eric off with his claws.
"If it's true, it'll be true after we celebrate." he looked around the table and saw that it was too late. He stood up and got in Jeff's face. "Why don't ya go ring up Gem and tell her your good news, bub?" he spat. He shoved Jeff out of his way and stormed out of the war room.

"Thank goodness. The amount of testosterone filling the room was making me nauseous." Emma smiled. "Well, looks like maybe the X-Men do kill. How thrilling. Maybe I should talk to this, Nate was it, and see if he does shape-shifting trollips or just old military psychos."
