Very disappointed in you

The Jean Grey School, Wednesday Afternoon
//Right, so,// Jonothon was ticking things off on his fingers as they walked toward the portal en route to the Jean Grey School, //from what I've gathered, things have changed around here at least somewhat since it was Xavier's school. One of the wings is completely made of ice, courtesy of Bobby, no doubt. The toilets will sometimes attack people, which is part of the joy of using Shi'ar technology to build the place, I suppose. And--// Jono stopped dead in his tracks as they stepped through the portal and he felt it first-hand for himself, a whomp to the side of the psionic senses from directly underfoot. //--Right. The school grounds themselves are sentient. His name is Krakoa - nice to meet you - and he feels quite the attachment for this place. Not terribly surprising. Most mutants who didn't know acceptance before coming here generally do.//

It was just, most of them weren't the size of a city block and covered in grass.

//Also, you'll want to keep an eye out for bamfs. They're a bit of an infestation, so far as I've been told.//

[OOC: For that guy! NFB for distance, of course. Open for texts and phone calls and all that jazz too, if you like.]

"So long as we're not expected to sleep on the ice," Hannibal answered. "Are there non-Shi'ar toilets available, or defenses to be used? And what does a bamf look like and what are they prone to?"

He didn't ask about Krakoa; sentient landmasses he was used to by now, and the thing seemed pleasant if Jono's greeting was anything to go by.

He eyed the futuristic constructions above the mansion and partially attached to it and shook his head, amused. "I feel more and more that my world is dreadfully dull by comparison."

//Your world has its interesting points, I'm sure. If they expect us to sleep on the ice, I'll invest in a hotel room,// Jono promised. //Just because Logan has me filling in for a few classes doesn't mean we need to freeze our bottoms off. I'm not sure about the toilets, I'm only going by what Lee has told me, and a bamf--//

A small stampede of little naked blue creatures bounded by, little demonic arrowhead-tails trailing behind them, throwing a baseball glove back and forth as one of the students chased hopelessly behind. The student didn't stand a chance, really. The creatures were teleporting with little 'bamf' sounds and a puff of brimstone.

//-- I'm not entirely certain, but I'd wager those might've been them.//

Hannibal watched them go, a bit amused, but wrinkled his nose at the sulfur smell. "Pungent." Then he returned to the truly interesting point. "Ms Lee is here?"

//She stays here on occasion,// Jono agreed, nodding a little. //We're not likely to see her until the sun sets, mind. She's picked up, er, a bit of an allergy.//

That was one way of putting it. Sure thing, Jon.

Hannibal raised an eyebrow. "The same sort of allergy as our friend at the Boards?"

//Jarringly similar,// Jono confirmed, in a tone of voice that suggested that he maybe still hadn't wrapped his head around that part. //It's a fairly recent development, really.//

"And not a pleasant one?" Hannibal asked.

//I have my doubts she took it terribly in stride,// Jono replied. //She wasn't born with it the same way Drac was. And I can't picture her volunteering herself to it.//

He furrowed his brow a little.

//I... I wasn't here for her,// he added, a little more quietly. //But what I've heard is that a lot of it was ugly.//

Hannibal squeezed his shoulder. "If you had been there for her, you might not have been there for Karla, or for your students. You're only one person. All you can do is be there for her now."

//I know,// Jono agreed, nodding a little and turning a thankful little glance Hannibal's way. //And Lee's always been one of the strongest people I know. I'll just have to pester her twice as much to make up for it.//

Was that how that worked? He hoped so.

Hannibal smirked. "And I have pictures and stories to share with her."

He looked around at the lawn and buildings; it seemed fairly empty. "How many students are there here?"

//Er, twenty or so, I'd guess,// Jono replied, looking around. //But this place has almost as many teachers as students. Possibly more. And the X-Men frequent here. Or, er, one half of the idiots who run around wearing an X, at least.//

There had been that messy breakup. Jono was never going to be able to think of it as anything but.

//And then the bamfs, and whatever else is going on at any given point in time...//

"So a population of maybe fifty, then," Hannibal said. "Which idiots am I most likely to meet at the moment?" he asked, amused by the description.

//Good question,// Jono admitted. //Whoever isn't out on a mission at the moment. Gambit, maybe. Probably Rogue. I don't know if Paige is even still working here...//

Funnily enough, Lee hadn't had much to say about Paige, lately.

"Tell me about them," Hannibal suggested as they started walking again.
