[IC] Six Supervillains walk in a Bar...
The Bar with no Name is weird. First of all, that is actually its name, ironically. It's located in a pocket dimension created by a crazy super. No one puts much thought in it because  not only it's a good hideout, if someone can actually create a pocket dimension it's not someone you want to trifle with. He or she minds is own business and not offended by shady deals being done. In it, six supervillains are about to know each other...

Three Taras walk into a bar.

End of joke.

They were there to drink, since rumor had it that they served underaged capes in the pocket dimension, and somehow, word of dancing had reached Tara.  Sounded like it was worth checking out.   First of all, though, she had to snap a few selfies to light up her insta and snapchat.

The three girls clustered around the phone. Obviously unhappy with the first few shots, one snatches the phone out of another's hand.  This prompts a mild catfight, like those three old ladies grappling for their shared eye in Clash of the Titans. The cheesy old one rather than the cheesy new one, not that Tara would ever go see a film like that.

"There. We look good in that one.  Damn.There's no signal in here. I hate having to wait to post."

"I hate having your grubby hands on the phone."

"It's my phone too."

"Seriously, they can build all kinds of super-stuff. How hard it it to get a single wireless account with three separate phones?"

"That grows into one giant phone when me merge?"

"Exactly."

Arctica looked at the small glass of vodka in her hand. She sipped it then looked at it again "Little warm." She says lightly and watches some frost come across the drink and she takes another sip. "Better..." She says and then is a bit distracted as three Asian girls...no the same asian girl three times were fighting over something. When she sees that it is a phone Arctica rolls her eyes. This was not the place to be doing 'selfies' and such. The girls seemed to be around her age but obviously a different style.

Arctica stood up and walked over to the bar by the three girls. Arctica looked over at the dart board and threw a ice dart she formed in her hand as it moved threw the air. "You three do not seem suited for this place." She said in her Russian accent. Arctica as usual was wearing dark clothes and makeup with her hair done up in a fancy but unusual way.

Sometimes, when Tara is in her tripartite form, differences in sensory input and perceptions cause the three identical selves to diverge, and  though they share a common mind and personality, they will show independence in action from each other.

This is not one of those times.

Three eyebrows arch up in unison. Was this chilly French* chick actually challenging her to a throw-down?  Tara was not really in the mood for a fight right now. But the night was young.

"I got past the bouncer one way or another, didn't I?" she says archily. "I'd say that pretty much proves I'm suited for this place.  I haven't decided yet if the place is suited to me, though.  Is it always this quiet?  Aren't there supposed to be A-list capes in here?"

*Yeah, yeah, I know. But Tara doesn't.

Arctica laughs lightly. These three seemed amusing but in the back of Arctica's mind she kept comparing them to the stuck up girls at her school. Despite this Arctica sat down with the girls. "Are you looking for A-list capes? For some fun or trouble? This bar is not the place that hero types come. " She said with a smirk.

"You three look familiar..." She said thinking. Arctica took a sip of her vodka and then nodded "Da..you are that Tara Kin person, no?" She asked. She ha seen their picture on some of the magazines and such the popular girls had around. Arctica didn't remember much about her.

"Fun or trouble? Do I have to choose?" A different Tara answers this time, but it is clear that all three bodies are sharing one role in the conversation.  All three shared a sly smile.

"And how sweet of you to remember me.  Yes, that was me on the cover of Teen Vogue,  with a passenger jet between my knees.  I'm still surprised they let us get away with that. And you? You look familiar. Cold powers, right?  I remember thinking how funny it would be if some princess-obsessed six year old were to mistake you for Elsa.

Arctica laughed lightly. "No you don't have to choose. Da, It is fun to have both." She said in agreement. "Are the three of you drinking?" She asked holding up her own drink.

"Sweet...yes lets go with that. I am Arctica, Da cold powers. I have not done anything major as if yet really. Just some small...fun things." She said with a little Smirk remembering her little walk by the beach that one day. It turned out to be a very cool day.

Arctica's eyes narrow. "I hate that movie." She says a bit harshly. Arctica opened her hand and a mist began to form over her palm then a little Elsa is made. She looks at it for a moment then smashes it on the table. "She was a fool. Could have done so much more." Arctica says and she takes a sip from her vodka. "So the three of you always go out with one another."

Tara cocks her heads, and then, in a monotone, all three of her drones "We are not three. We are one. Only Tara," in unison.  She then relaxes after flashing impish grins, each of her assuming a different stance. This time only one of them speaks. "It's a common mistake to think we are triplets or siblings.  I'm really just one person who happens to have three bodies."

"So by 'going out' together, we can't exactly date each other," another adds. "Anymore than you can date yourself."

"Which, you know, you probably do a lot of," the third grins. It's hard to tell if she's being mean or playful.

The first takes over again. "Anyhow, we're not exactly evil either. Stuff just gets in our way, you know? If you could stomp the 405 on a high-traffic day, or flick an annoying twerp who's hitting on you across a parking lot, wouldn't you? It's not like we're not entitled to more than normals, right?"

Arctica arched an eyebrow as the three said they were one and one of them implied Arctica 'dated herself' a lot. Arctica opened her hand and a small but sharp ice spike formed. "SO if the three of you are one do you all feel what happens to each other? Like if I stabbed this one-" She motioned to the one that had made the comment. "Would the other two feel it?" She said wondering.

"Stuff just seems to not go your way hmm? I know how you feel when dealing with some people that annoy you. I have done...a bit of that." She said with a smirk. "Entilted to more? That is something most of those A list hero capes feel. I think they should be taken down a peg myself. So you, yourselves, what kind of fun do you seek? The fun of rushing off to save people and have them ador you. Or the fun of doing what you wish and taking others down a peg?"

Tara eyes the icicle in Artica's hand, and a slow smile crosses her lips.  "Cute sex toy.  Kind of small, though, isn't it?" Then, one of them assumes a professorial tone, straightening her back as she declaims: "We can choose to share a sensory and mental link, so we can pass pleasure to each other when we so desire. But as for injuries, we only share the effect of them when we physically merge, and by then we're usually so pissed off that someone's gonna get the hurt back ten times worse."

She knew it was indiscreet to talk too much about her abilities, so she takes the opening to talk about stomping.  "Yeah, the adoration part sounds good, but the whole saving innocents thing? Sounds like a lot of work.  I'll take the fast track to fame and riches, thank you very much.  After all, why bust your ass when the good life is there for the taking? I take it we share that outlook?"

Arctica smirks. "I guess if you had so many this would seem small." She says and lets the ice go. "Interesting ability. A lot of different ways you can use it. I'm not sure if we share the same outlook but they seem to be close enough." She sips her vodka some more as she looks over the Taras.

"So what are you looking for? Some one to use in getting yourself more famous? Most of the big A-listers around here are gone because of that last villain getting defeated. Some don't ant to be next and others wan to lay low as the heroes bask in the sun. But I think now is our chance to step up and well take a piece." She says with a smile.

The Taras shrug, again in unison. "Good and bad, cape and villain, seem so dated, you know?  For every squeaky-clean hero or genocidal lunatic, there are dozens more in the grey area.  Loose cannon vigilantes, sincere activists who take matters into their own hands, people lashing out with their powers because they were wronged...who's to judge? In the end, when it all boils down to it, all that really matters is: do they love you? I don't mean love in a lovey-dovey you're-my-hero kind of way. I mean, will they follow you? Do they pay attention to you? Is your name the first thing they think of when someone mentions the word 'super'?"

Another picks up the thread. "So that's where I stand. I take what I want, do what I want, and I make sure I record every minute of it. Because when push comes to shove, do you think they're going to watch another spoiled Hollywood bitch who made a sex tape, or someone who might--just maybe--stuff the whole LA Rams team in her cleavage?"

Finally, the third finishes. "At this stage, it's all about connections, getting my name out there. Photo shoots and red carpet galas.  If I were to just go on a rampage and stomp Brentwood, they'd fit me for the world's largest orange jumpsuit. But once you're famous...really famous, you can get away with so much more."

Arctica finishes her Vodka as Tara starts telling her thoughts on things. Arctica raises an eyebrow here and there as Tara talks. " I can agree with most of what your saying. I am not one to care about fame and having people love or follow me. "   Then she leans forward and smiles a little. "Now fear? That is something I like. I guess that is fame in itself. They have to know you to fear you... But it is a very nice feeling when you see the look on the other persons face when they realize they have fucked with someone they should not have." Arctica smiles remembering her little walk on the beach.

" So you plan on using your phone to gather you followers and the like to be famous, no? So what big splashes are you thinking of making to get such attention?" she wondered aloud. " I may like to watch such a thing. It may be a pretty funny site." it was weird talking to all three Tara's like they were one but hey that was the crazy way things are when dealing with other supers. She glances around. " Seems pretty slow in here..." she says musingly.

Tara realizes that there is much in her worldview that Arctica does not get, but it doesn't bother her in the slightest. The three Taras squeeze together, melding into one. Her bulk grows until she must kneel on the floor, her legs straddling the table.  Even kneeling, she looms almost the ceiling ten feet above.  And based on photos that have been published, she is capable of growing much, much larger.

"Love...hate.  It really doesn't matter, does it, as long as they do what you want.  They'll love me in the end, because they won't really have a choice.  But what's not to love? I'm a hell of a lot more entertaining than those uptight heroes with capes on their backs and sticks up their asses."

"I'm taking it slow right now.. Getting my name and face out there. But when the time is right, I plan to parade down Rodeo Drive, taking what I want and daring anyone to stop me.  The normals just don't get it. Their rules jsut don't apply to people like us."

Arctica shifts back a little as Tara grows. "Drinking while that size must take a while to get a buzz." she says with a smirk. " That is a philosophy I can get behind. Taking the capes down a bit and doing a bit what we please." she got up walking to the bar and gets another drink. She looks back to Tara " Do you want anything?" she says with a slight smile thinking about getting a keg out for her to drink.

" Slow can be nice... So can having some friends." she says as she walks back. She looks around the bar and shrugs. "Looks pretty empty in here but I know there are a few villains working here in the area. Just have to find them and see if they are worth anything." she says musingly.

"A bottle if you're buying," Tara says. "And a bottle if you're just taking."  Honestly, she had never tried drinking when she was this height.  She wondered if she could tear to the top off a keg or one of those oak barrels they made Jack Daniels in.  Might be good for a laugh, just to watch people's faces. And if she got hammered, well, that would be a laugh, too.  For some reason, her lawyer seemed to think it better if she was drunk when she smashed stuff.

"Friends," she mused, looking at Arctica carefully. She wondered if the Ice Queen was really the friendship type. God knew that she had flaws in that department.  But still, it might be worth hanging with her, just for the rush a few capers. Who knew?
