throughaphase: (i have sulking to do)
With everything done, the X-Men- or, the X-Treme team, anyway- brought Kitty back to Chicago. Today had been a recovery day, because it needed to be a recovery day. She'd had to explain to a few people why she'd been missing for a day and felt the need to check in with her therapist for some strange reason and got to spend time with her former teammates and friends that she hadn't even talked to in almost two years. They'd been able to fill in some- not all- of the blanks in what had happened at Mt. Haven, though she still had some pretty significant questions that looked like they'd just have to go unanswered. Basically, nannites that attached themselves to your nervous system until it connected you to the AI controlling the place did wonky, bad things. Where Stryker was concerned, a lot of things would have to stay a mystery to her.

and no further trauma happened. )

[NFB, NFI, yadda yadda. Heavily adapted from X-Treme X-Men #30 because I was bored and this is what I did.]
throughaphase: (talk to me)
When Kitty woke up this time, she was laying among a bunch of bodies. She could tell that just from the smell. She couldn't have been out too long either, because as she came back to consciousness, she could hear Stryker still talking. It was entirely possible that he was a monologuer, though, and had been at this for a while because he liked the sound of his voice. He was talking to her, even though there was a metal hood over her face and he had no idea she was awake.

"You wonder why I fight, Katherine?" he was saying. "In the face of such horror, how could I not? I wish things were different. There is goodness in you, but sometimes even the good have to be sacrificed. With that small price, and God's good grace, I pray that humanity will prevail."

and kitty thought, he was right. )

[From X-Treme X-Men #30, and done! NFB, NFI, OOC just dandy.]
throughaphase: (on my bad side)
So far, Kitty was spending a lot of her time unconscious, and given the pain she was in and everything that happened when she woke up, she really would have rathered stay unconscious.

today's theme, actually: unconsciousness )

[NFB, NFI, OOC okay. From X-Treme X-Men #28 and 29. Seriously, stay awake for five minutes, please.]
throughaphase: (only slightly worried)
In the dream Kitty had just struck out Peter, winning the World Series for the Cubs. That was probably when she should have known it was a dream, really. Sorry, Cubs. Her former teammates had carried her on their shoulders in celebration, and she'd hugged her parents- her dad alive, and back with her mom- and they'd told her how proud they were of her... and then they'd started to vanish, leaving Stryker in front of her quoting Bible verses, and then even he was gone, and Kitty yelling that it wasn't fair and she didn't want to be alone.

She must have yelled it in her sleep, because she woke up to a voice saying, "You're not alone."

not creepy at all. )

[Taken from X-Treme X-Men #27, NFB, NFI, but feel free to get your OOC on.]
throughaphase: (there is no good here)
Kitty was having a really bad vacation. One might even downgrade it from "bad" to "suck ass."

It'd started off normal enough. She spent time with her mom, visited Shan at work, got to find out all about Dylan's date tonight before offering to fill in for him at her old job so he could go at a decent time. And then while she was closing up the bar, ...someone had found her. She never got to see who. She'd been shot with something, she didn't know what, but woke up unharmed in a cell.

clearly a good start to things... )

[NFB, NFI, OOC okay. Taken from X-Treme X-Men #26, and get ready for the preachiest canon catchup ever.]
throughaphase: (rather not hear that)
Kitty's plan was to take advantage of the quiet week to finally go home and visit. She'd only been back once since she'd gotten to Fandom, and there were still people there she wanted to see. She had everything packed, she still had a little while until her portal, so she unpacked her laptop again to kill some time.

That was when she found the article about evangelist/convicted criminal William Stryker dying in a plane crash, and how the X-Men were being blamed for it. For some reason. Of course there wasn't actually any evidence that they were at fault, but peope didn't seem to need it. Stryker was a mutant-hater. Of course if he died unexpectedly, it had to be mutants who did it, right? And Kitty didn't really know how she felt about finding out about this, to be honest. He'd kidnapped her best friend and nearly shot Kitty in the face when she was thirteen, among other things; it made sense for her to hate the guy and be glad he was dead. But mostly it all just made her mad. And then she went and read the comments on the article even though she knew to never read the comments...

Well it looked like she was just going to have to travel angry.

[Mostly establishy, but can be open before she leaves!]
