Re: On the Shadowhawk

Paragon reached over and gently took the rifle from Psi-Bird. She then took it to Garcia, carefully handing it to him as someone clearly familiar with responsible gun handling would.

Re: On the Shadowhawk

Alison smiled amiably at Garcia. Honestly he is in the age range she should find attractive, and he is so, she just preferred men who were around 35 physically. She probably always would, though she couldn't see the future.

Folding her arms across her chest. "Well we still have two objectives. This means we need two groups. I submit that Senor Garcia, Spymaster, and I tackle one while the rest of you take on the other."

Psi-Bird:
In reply to Chimp Man Z (msg # 178):

"Yeah Psi-Bird, Stephany... or Birdie!", her tone of admiration and personal delight at meeting a well known superhero were infectious.

Stephany beams a charmed smile and takes the offered hand, "Yeah, the moral majority can be really silly in the media hype.  But I must say.. you really 'hunked out' so.. maybe there's a small silver-lining to the dark clouds of public scrutiny?" She winked at him lasciviously.

Well, I'm still trying to get used to it, CMZ says a bit uncomfortably.  His nine foot tail, which had been swaying lazily behind him, seems to twitch slightly.  My spider monkey friends seem to be the only ones who haven't noticed the change.
He quickly lets go of her hand after a quick, gentle pump, as Señor Garcia stalks up.  His anger seems evident, so the mutant steps away.

Re: On the Shadowhawk

Runa could see her friend, the mighty Chimp Manzee, was still uncomfortable in his own skin, now that it was no longer covered in fur. That concerned the priestess but now was not the time for a deep discussion. Now was the time for action. Lives hung in the balance or so she was made to understand.

When Senior Garcia and Psi-Bird began their heated exchange, Runa felt certain that Lilibeth would seek to come out and try to broker peace between the two but she felt the barest of stirrings. She didn't know why but the other woman simply didn't seem interested in being out as it were.

Ignoring Psi-Bird and Senior Garcia, Runa turns away from CMZ and towards Paragon. "Since neither I nor Lilibeth was named for your team, I assume we will be with the other. What would you have us do?"

Runa hoped that her deliberate referencing of Lilibeth and 'us' would provoke a reaction from Lilibeth but there was barely a ripple of interest before her thoughts turned inwards and became shrouded once more.

"Sounds good to me. I think we should take the security center, as Spymaster suggested." He then speaks a different language, asking Paragon a question, maybe two. [Language unknown: "Ou is ivindi ei alrat to is anfor, hatonsers str ur SATHCH e. Ar prie oul ta son p evadha lo be thmoun unstwe?"

Re: On the Shadowhawk

Paragon nodded, to Runa. "Agreed. The three of us are sneaky and have similar skillsets. I'm not excluding you perse just that I feel the three of us are better suited to collaboration."

Turning back to Garcia, [Language unknown: "Po asnonc not ant butleseve, icaallyin vendinhat ainichderichith undstitrader tio.

Re: On the Shadowhawk

Runa frowned since Paragon's response, which was a reply, was not an answer to her question; what did she want Runa and the others not on Paragon's team, to do.

She was about to rephrase her question but the other woman was talking to Senior Garcia in that unknown tongue.

So the priestess turns to Spymaster instead and asks the same question, "What would you have of me and the rest?"

Senor Garcia responds to Chimp Man Z. "Once we take out the security and comms station the rest of you can hit that cannon. Before then, maybe carry out some sort of distraction to draw some of the Chinilayan soldiers away from the base?"

Re: On the Shadowhawk

In reply to Paragon (msg # 182):

Stephany made no effort to retain the slung assault rifle as Paragon took it, her expression was one of perplexed 'whatever', but she briefly smiled for Alison and shrugged...

In reply to Paragon (msg # 184):

Not being an ex-solider Stephany has no real opinion of weather putting all the experienced soldiers together in a war setting and leaving all the now civilians alone was the best idea.. but she made no objection.  She was not helpless and she would not allow anyone in her presence to be hurt if it was within her power so she was unconcerned if all the soldiers wanted to run off on their own... maybe that might be for the best?

In reply to Chimp Man Z (msg # 185):

Stephany nods in empathy and remarks, "Well, I for one see the man who has time and time again gone out of his way to help others ~ that heroic compassionate man is all that matters regardless of how his outward appearance may change with time."

As Señor Garcia stalks up, Stephany moves with CMZ... taking a step behind him keeping CMZ between her and the ex-solider she clearly does not trust.

In reply to Runa (msg # 189):

Psi-Bird shrugged and walked over to Runa's side and whispered to her...

Stephany kept her distance staying near CMZ, Runa, and Captain Justice as the soldiers secretly ~ or not so secretly planned to abandon the meta-human team members.  She pulled her precision telephoto camera from her shoulder bag and began fitting a long-ranged lens to it adjusting its focal aperture for some high-speed shots in the future.  Whatever the plan was.. Psi-Bird had already contributed much to the team's knowledge.. even if she was totally excluded from anything more.. she felt confident and content she'd helped a lot already...

She stopped him, "Jacob, I meant no disrespect. It wasn't you I thought wouldn't be sneaky. It was your fleet of monkeys. They need you on that team. When they hit that cannon you have to be there to keep them alive. Understand?" She removed her hand and smiled, "Now go out and make some noise."

Re: On the Shadowhawk

Senor Garcia made no emotional response to Psi-Bird putting Chimp Man Z between herself and him. He let Paragon speak to the mutant, before responding to him in another language.

Re: On the Shadowhawk

I have some friends who would be quite good at causing a distraction, CMZ advises.  It would likely be more effective against humans, but I am sure androids would find the situation quite confusing.  Just let me know where, and when.
As for whatever else the old man said, CMZ seems to ignore it for now, focussing on the needs of the moment rather than anything else.

I do not remember if CMZ and Captain Justice have been properly introduced.

Re: On the Shadowhawk

In reply to Chimp Man Z (msg # 197):

Stephany turns to Captain Justice and nods, "Well Captain Justice... this here is Chimpman Z.. bonifide Hero, Rescue Medic and Entertainer!  He's like literally indestructibleCMZ, this is Captain Justice flying super solider ... and a nice guy to boot!"

"If we are basically going to be attacking the facility we first need to know our objective I would think.  Are we here to just smash stuff or capture their leader FORCE / Franklin Emerson?  No reason we can't do both... Spymaster suggested a start of a plan would involve hitting the dock area as the workers there would not really be ready for a fight.  He also suggested potentially repurposing the Energy Weapon array or at least getting schematics from it before we smash it."

"Personally, I'd like being where the high energy weapons array could not be aimed at us at all... like in their underground facility... the maps I made show a tram system from the House that goes directly there.  I'd say we hit the house and try to find that tram station and get into their underground base... break shit. Going Right down the enemies throat is pretty distracting too... We'll Need you Captain J, and CMZ on point to take that heat while we push through... with War Priestess Runa in second rank to heal us as We ~ as a Team 'HAMMER'.. the enemy down!" ~ she winks and smiles at Captain Justice lightly tapping his hammer to punctuate her point.

"...there is one thing though.  I know Emerson Electronics has been experimenting with people like me for a while, Psions being apprehended and detained but I never could find out where they were being taken... a hidden underground facility outside the continental US is something I'd never looked for before.  There may be more opposition than we think once we get inside. That will be my part to deal with if it happens to be an issue... Emerson has been Hot and Heavy trying to get their hands on me for some time... like I'm potentially the most powerful Psi on their hit list ~ guess its time to prove it?  Otherwise I'll play support ~ Teleporting stuff and Telekinetically smashing or Pyrokineticlly exploding opposition or Healing and/or erecting TK Force Fields to shield you all to support your assault.  Working together I'm sure they'll never know what hit them!"

Then she shrugs, "And while were kicking ass... Smokh with Flagg's loyalists make their assault... mass confusion...!"

Re: On the Shadowhawk

Look, I'm just a guy, okay?  Maybe not an ordinary guy on the outside, but pretty ordinary inside.  CMZ's face seems to go a bit red.
Sounds like a good plan, he says, getting back to the matter at hand.  He looks around.  Well, I thought I had some help with the distraction, but the monkeys don't seem to have followed me.  Maybe I can find some more howlers outside the city.

Re: On the Shadowhawk

In reply to Chimp Man Z (msg # 201):

Psi-Bird Grins and batts her eyes at Captain Justice her tone in an obvious open playful flirt, "Team 'Hammer'... I like the sound of that... you sweet-talker. You know just what to say to make a girl curl her toes in anticipation, tee-hee."

Turning to CMZ, "Modesty is a fine quality Leaderman Z.  As for more monkeys... the trek to the House is through the jungle by foot you might be able to pick up some on the way there maybe."

Then she regarded the other part of the Sentinels, frowning slightly at the imbalance regarding Spymaster, Paragon and particularly Senor...

She walked over to Winter Herald, "Hey Iceman, would you go with Spymaster's team to keep Team 'Stilleto' out of whatever trouble they want to keep secret from everyone else their planning? Not a very Team 'Oriented' Move but hey its what we got."

Regarding Drifter and his Fey companion ~ Lady Jane, "Hey Drifter would you and Lady Jane please stick with Winter Herald here and be ready to help him keep as many of Team Stilleto from getting 'nailed' and out if they need it?  I'd very much appreciate it."

Turning back to Winter she glanced Senor's direction with a slight frown, "Winter keep them safe... especially Spymaster, Paragon, Drifter and Lady Jane their decent folk I think... don't risk your life overmuch for the Mean-Geezer, he would not for any of you. To his type ~ people are tools to use and abandon when it gets more convenient to HIS well-being, he has only one team... HIM.  Seriously... the mission is second to your lives whatever secret goals the Mean-Geezer cooks up!"

She smiles up at Winter and gives him a sisterly hug, "I know.. your not a hugger but your more human than some I could mention, and I AM a hugger.. good luck!"

Returning to Team Hammer addressing CMZ, "Suns getting low.. that 'stroll' through the jungle is not getting shorter.. let's get to it."

Psi-Bird:

She walked over to Winter Herald, "Hey Iceman, would you go with Spymaster's team to keep Team 'Stilleto' out of whatever trouble they want to keep secret from everyone else their planning? Not a very Team 'Oriented' Move but hey its what we got."
...
Turning back to Winter she glanced Senor's direction with a slight frown, "Winter keep them safe... especially Spymaster, Paragon, Drifter and Lady Jane their decent folk I think... don't risk your life overmuch for the Mean-Geezer, he would not for any of you.

She smiles up at Winter and gives him a sisterly hug, "I know.. your not a hugger but your more human than some I could mention, and I AM a hugger.. good luck!"

Winter Herald looks, quizzically, at Psi-Bird, "No. That's all wrong."
"I can't accompany Spymaster as they're approaching FORCE himself. There's a strong chance (approximately 82.649%) that I could lose my free will in his presence."
"I would be superfluous to the military assault on the electro-static device, remember that the only information we have as to its function came from the enemy and is therefore suspect. If it turns out I'm needed at that device, I can get there quickly."
"That unknown location at 'D' on our images is too close to the main installation to be anything but the headquarters for the Chinilayan military presence. The military are probably not invited into the FORCE base, so they would have to be somewhere. It's also too close to FORCE's base for me to approach. I will not lose my free will; I've decided it has value beyond anything logical."
"I'll be going to the docks. Once these are secure the Shadowhawk and Gemini will have a place to come to when the electrostatic device is out of commission."

He awkwardly returns Psi-Bird's hug, and says, "I'm not a hugger, but I'm attempting to catalog interhuman relations to avoid making my human allies uncomfortable, so I don't mind a hug as long as you don't mind my recording of the experience..."
Winter Herald steps back and finishes "...and uploading it to my tweetie account for discussion.".

In reply to Winter Herald (msg # 203):

Winter's words give Psi-Bird pause.... then something finally dawns on Stephany, "Oh... Winter... I'm an idiot!  I didn't make the connection ~ FORCE / Franklin Emerson made you ... didn't he?  I am sorry, should have realized that from what you told me before."

She places and hand on his shoulder, "Yeah, as one abandoned and discarded orphan to another... potentially by the same 'father'... I get it.  Someday... as you told me before.. you will have to confront him.  Just remember your not alone with that, you got a team to stand with you ~ so your one up on me in that.  I'm so use to doing everything by myself... having a 'team' feels weird... trusting people to make decisions.  I'm no tech-person, but I think you have your own will and I don't think anything FORCE built in you has any control over who YOU are 'Iceman' ~ If You believe in YOU. But you do you.. and do what's best for you... I can tell you care about your new family... and do not want to hurt them.  Your WAAAY better than FORCE in that... far beyond him.  That matters.  But securing the boat out of here should things go tits up is probably a good thing too."

She nods Spymaster's way, "..'Muscles' there said someone named Justicar might be available for some backup firepower should it be needed.  Perhaps you should keep that guy up to date and have the cavalry ready should things get dicey?  Anyways.. we got this... but in case we don't it'll be nice to know you got our backs.  Take care 'Tin-man'."

She turns to follow CMZ and the others, readying her telephoto camera...

Stephany smirks, and holds the large 'clearly' expensive telephoto-camera out in the palm of one hand... then snaps her fingers and the camera takes flight orbiting around her in a rapid aerobatic sequence of shifting angles for dramatic shots.

Her expression smarmy, "..its hands free when I use TK ... I always get the dramatic shots.  My camera never gets in the way... but the camera is our cover...remember?  We're a journalist team ~ 'cataloguing the need for Not-for-profit, Non-Government Agencies to do charity work for the poorest citizens of underdeveloped nations'."
