Breakworld- Friday morning FT




Kitty

Aghanne's scouts got wind of the others very early, so at first light Clint, Peter and Kitty set out to rendezvous with them aboard a transport ship that had come from somewhere. Everyone else seemed okay, aside from Kitty who was still having problems dealing with whatever this world was made of, but she could shake that off and focus once she saw Lockheed was flying towards her.

"Dragon!" she cried, holding out her arms for him to come over.



Brand

Meanwhile, Brand was furious to hear that Emma had spent her time on the Breakworld recruiting Danger to her team and then some.

"You put that thing in charge of my men?"



Emma

"Can she possibly do a worse job than you?" Emma countered smoothly.



Clint

"I can't believe these words are going to come out of my mouth, but I agree with Emma," Clint said, smiling as he watched Kitty with Lockheed. "We can use all the help we can get at this point, right?"



Kitty

Kitty was totally ignoring this in favor of Lockheed, who allowed some cuddles but felt a little off to her. "What's wrong? Are you hungry, little fella?"



Brand

Already annoyed at the situation and her current conversation, Brand turned towards her to snap, "Oh for god's sake, stop simpering at him! Lockheed works for us. He's been doing surveillance on your team since you rejoined."



Lockheed

Lockheed had known his cover would be blown, but he hadn't wanted it to happen like that. So he did the best he could to slunk away by flying guiltily away from her.



Kitty

Kitty, for her part, felt like she'd just been slapped, and couldn't manage more than a, "Wow."



Clint

Clint gave Kitty a sympathetic look, and then glared at Brand. "Now I know why you have to kidnap people to get them to work with you."



Emma

Not that Emma was upset over Kitty's hurt feelings or anything, but Brand was terrible. "Do you also visit orphanages to tell them there is no Santa?"



Brand

"This is exactly your problem!" Brand said, exasperated. "Infantilizing alien races... That dragon speaks more languages than the Professor, he's not some starlet's chihuahua. Lockheed has some homeworld issues we're helping him with. Pressing issues."



Kitty

Don't mind Kitty, who was just going to step a little closer to Clint because this was just the worst trip to space ever.



Clint

"I speak a bunch of languages too, that doesn't mean I don't enjoy being sweet talked," Clint said. He wrapped an arm around Kitty's waist protectively and gave her a gentle squeeze.



Hank

"Coming up on the moon," Hank said, looking out the window. "Disturbing lack of security... And more bad news..."



Scott

"We expected the moon to be fortified. You don't think we can land?" Scott asked curiously, joining him to look.



Hank

"You know, I thought I'd have a lot more fun if I ever got to say this..." Hank said as they came upon the giant metal structure with the tip of the missile sticking out of it. "That's no moon."



Clint

"Aww moon," Clint said quietly, staring at the sheer size of the structure. "That's going to fire one hell of a missile."



Brand

"I didn't bring you here for nothing," Brand said, as alarms began going off, signaling incoming warships.

It was going to be another one of those days.



Hank

It was Hank who got to the controls of the transport first. "We outrun these warships never," he warned.



Logan

"We got a plan?" asked Logan. "I really don't want to play man who fell to Earth again."

His skin had just grown back from that.



Clint

"I think I saw some sort of craft in the back," Clint said, "but I don't think it'll hold more than one person."



Scott

"You go. I'll stay," Scott said. "Emma, help me."

And using Emma as a telepathic link, he said, We need to get close to Kruun. That won't happen unless he thinks we're helpless. So I'll take the repair ship and get myself captured.

"They'll come after me. It'll buy you time. And if anything happens, I'm the most... I'm the one with no powers."



Hank

"They're gaining," Hank warned.

There's a good chance they'll kill you, boss.



Scott

If they do, they'll just bring me back the same way they did Peter.

"The most important thing is keeping them from finding out about our ace in the hole," Scott said.

We need something ominous and imposing, he prompted.



Clint

"Leviathan?" Clint offered. It was the easiest thing that came to mind at imposing.



Scott

Oh, that's perfect. They won't be able to resist it.

"It's our best hope now," Scott said seriously. "The rest of you keep low until Leviathan shows up. Pete, it's too dangerous for you to make contact with Aghanne. Emma will go instead."



Kitty

"I object!" Kitty announced.



Emma

"Kitty?" Emma asked, while asking, Bugger me, was that acting?



Peter

Is not courtroom drama, Katya, Peter added.



Clint

"Kitty, relax. Everything will be fine," Clint said reassuringly. Once we get you some acting lessons.



Kitty

Shut up! Kitty thought defensively. I'm not good at having two conversations at once! And I hate Scott's plan.

"To all of this! You're not just gonna throw your life away after this!"



Scott

You mean you object, but I'll allow it, Scott thought.



Logan

They knew they were being heard, but Logan really hoped there wasn't a camera on him. There was no way he was keeping a straight face. Shit. I'm gonna crack up. I'm cracking up.



Clint

"It's not... he's not throwing anything away. Right now, we don't have much else of a plan," Clint said, glancing at Logan. If this wasn't so serious, he'd crack up too.



Scott

"It'll be fine," Scott lied.

Agent Brand, you and Hank work that prophecy. Peter, bring Aghanne into the fold if you can. Be outside the prison in a few hours. Bring everyone. I'd better go before Kitty tries to act again.

"Stay away from Kruun, stay away from the prison... even if they take me alive," Scott said, starting to head out. "They're all yours, Emma."
