Headed Back to Xavier's, Friday Evening, Fandom Time
Church of Humanity, Jonothon's ass.

Humanity wasn't necessarily Jono's favourite, at the moment. Not while he was standing around with an extra hole in him, courtesy of one of their messed-up congregation. And Kurt was... out of it. Out of it seemed like the best way of putting it, considering they'd found him curled up in a ball on the floor. At least Stacy X had been able to bring him around. Apparently she was good for more than calling Jon such endearing terms as 'no-face' and just generally driving him up a wall.

He hadn't even realized what the date was back on Fandom until he got Raven's text, which had been very welcome in the wake of that whole mess. He'd been able to burn away the spear easily enough, but there was a hole torn through his back that was going to need medical attention, and those photos were a very welcome distraction. He pulled out his phone and hit 'reply.'

You know, I like you however you're most comfortable, Sunshine. You certainly wear them all rather well. Thank you for the birthday wishes. It's actually coming up around that time of year again here in my own time, too. I'll be... Lord, 21? It's too bloody easy to lose track, between one reality and the next. Love you. Miss you. See you soon, perhaps?

They were headed back to Xavier's, now. It had been a long time since he'd been back there. For all the time they'd spent flying here and there, making pit stops at Worthington Industries and so on, it would be nice to have his own room again.

... His birthday.


[NFB for distance, of course. Open if anyone wants to text him!]

Such a good thing Raven couldn't sense his injuries over the phone or she wouldn't wait for soon. Blissfully unaware, she sent him the picture she'd taken of Joni with the pink hat Fandom had bestowed upon her Tuesday.

It rained winter hats here on Tuesday. Even Joni got one! Even if the kitty didn't look happy about it at all.

I hope you do not have too many birthdays or else you will be too old for me. ;)

It was fortunate that Jono couldn't laugh, because that particular photo of his cat was absurd enough that he would have seriously hurt himself if he'd been able to.

Poor, poor Joni.

It's good to know that Fandom is looking out for the health and well-being of even cats, since it's been cold there lately. And how has Kaeleer been? I worry.

Because... Kaeleer. Jono had one good experience with the place, and even that had involved being hot and sweaty while watching other people have fun and not daring to leap into the water to cool down... That particular visit had come to a pleasant end, though.

I'll be sure to tell the next birthday to hold off for a while for you to catch up. Besides, I doubt I'll be the sort to age gracefully. At all.

Raven chewed at her lip for a moment before answering. She'd never lie to Jono, but she didn't want him to worry too much. Then again, he didn't want her to worry about him, and she did regardless.

There is trouble in Kaeleer. Karla's uncle has declared Black Widows to be enemies and is having many executed in Glacia. We are planning to get as many to safety as we can. Karla cannot involve her friends directly or it would mean war, and she is not prepared for that yet. So we are going to transport people and materials to build them a safe haven on the border with another territory. We are being very careful.


2011-07-23 03:21 am (UTC) (Link)

See? Kaeleer was trouble. Jon would have scowled at the phone at that, if only he could.

Well, with something like that, you would have to be. Is there anything that I can do to help?


2011-07-23 03:32 am (UTC) (Link)

We have just been planning thus far, and if all goes well, we will avoid any trouble. I truly hope my gifts will not be needed. But it being Kaeleer, there weren't good odds on that.

What have you been doing? Are you any closer to your new home?


2011-07-23 03:36 am (UTC) (Link)

Getting there, actually. We had a few detours along the way, picked up another mutant back in Nevada, and now we're finally headed to Xavier's. With any luck, things will be quiet for a while before we have to worry about heading out again.


2011-07-23 03:46 am (UTC) (Link)

I hope so! And when you are settled I would love to come visit you and give you your birthday present.

She did have a discount at 'Dite's, after all.

Time also flew at a different rate in Kaeleer, but Karla's phone kept track of Fandom-time. At some point in the day, her phone beeped at her to let her know she'd listed an event for the 22nd of July: Jono's birthday.

Even as busy as she was, she still had time to text her favorite emo mutant.

Happy birthday, jono! Are you having a good day? Wear yr tiara so everyone knows it's yr birthday!


2011-07-24 11:34 pm (UTC) (Link)

Crown. It's a crown, Karla. And it's a prom crown, so I hardly think anybody will immediately go and associate it with my celebrating another birthday.

But I'll think about it. How have you been?

Jono? Not so busy. Taking it easy for a little while, before the inevitable stampeding out the door again to save the day, or whatever it was that he was supposed to do on these X-missions. Play annoying youngest member mascot and stay in the Blackbird, mostly. Unless they needed to blow something up.


2011-07-26 10:07 pm (UTC) (Link)

Tiara! Jono would never, ever get her to admit otherwise. You can wear a birthday sash to complete the look?

That would be amaaaaaazing. If only he would, it would make Karla's whole day.

I'm ok. Back in kaeleer, cuz hobart's being an ass. Raven's here w/me, making sure i don't do anything stupid. Not that i would.

Surely he'd believe that!


2011-07-26 10:14 pm (UTC) (Link)

Oh, no. In all of my days of knowing you, I've never once seen you do anything stupid, Karla.

Too bad there wasn't a font option for sarcasm while texting.


2011-07-26 10:35 pm (UTC) (Link)

I am young and impressionable, Karla typed, sticking her tongue out at the phone screen. If i act like an idiot i can only look at my older, wiser companions.

Who, say, blew themselves up to help their friends. For example.


2011-07-26 10:46 pm (UTC) (Link)

Older, I'll grant. I'm withholding comment on the 'wiser' bit, though. If you ask anybody around here these days, they'll be happy to tell you all about what they think of me and my so-called wisdom.

The blowing himself up thing had totally been an extenuating circumstance, blast it.


2011-07-26 10:56 pm (UTC) (Link)

And so had most of the scrapes she'd landed herself in! Sorta!

Yeah, but they run around in spandex and kick over people's tables. You'll forgive me if i am less than inclined to take their word for it. Karla's sniff was probably audible over the text medium.

How're you settling in? I can probably spare a few minutes if someone needs a good kicking and you don't wanna do it yourself.


2011-07-26 11:07 pm (UTC) (Link)

I'd probably be settling in better if I'd even had any opportunity to find a space to settle. I've been stuck in the jet almost constantly since the time they picked me up. Except for the layover at Worthington Industries while we looked up some information on a brothel in Nevada. And the few scuffles when they actually let me out on good behaviour.

Or, rather, when they weren't necessarily paying attention and he snuck out to fight, too.
