I don't own the X-Men, those belong to Marvel Comics and were created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby
Emma Frost was created by Chris Claremont and John Bryne.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer was created By Joss Whedon and all the characters with the BTVS TV series are his as well.
The Thundercats were created by Ted Wolf and currently belong to Warner Brothers, at one point in time Marvel comics did do a run of the them in comics form, although DC comics do them now.
“Oh this is ridiculous.” Xander said as he stared at the unconscious teens laying on the ground just inside the compound.
“Halloween masks and spray paint.” Logan snorted. “I didn't realize that tagging was still popular.”
“It's not what it used to be.” Xander said. “We've got them red handed, literally on the little guy. I say we call the police and let the authorities handle them.”
“You actually think that's going to work?” Logan asked.
Xander shrugged. “No time like the present to find out.” He said as he pulled out his cell phone. “Do we fall under the city or the county jurisdiction?”
“County.” Logan told him.
“Sheriff's office it is.” Xander said as he dialed the number.
“You know I could have sworn I locked my door.” Ben said as he opened his eyes.
“You did.” Felicia told him. “Took like two seconds.”
“So why are you here?” Ben asked her as he sat up.
“I was bored.” She shrugged before she flopped down on the bed. “Anything good on TV?”
“Nothing that isn't on any other television in the building.” Ben said.
“I know. I was just bored.” She told him.
“Uh-huh.” He grinned as he handed her his remote control.
“So do you always sleep in the nude?” She asked him.
“Don't you?” Ben grinned.
Forest Hills, Queens....
The two teenagers sprang apart when someone started knocking on Peter's bedroom door.
“Kids, both of you had better have both feet on the floor.” There was a pause. “On second thought, nothing past Second Base.” May called. “No telling what you two can do to work around the first restriction.”
“Dammit.” Peter sighed as Mary Jane started giggling.
“You have to admit, it's funny.” She told him.
“My Spider-Sense doesn't even tingle with her.” Peter groaned.
“Are you sure you weren't just ignoring it?” She asked him.
“Did yours go off?” He wondered.
“Nope.” Mary Jane told him.
“Let's just hope she never sleep walks while carrying firearms.” Peter sighed. “So.... Junior Prom is coming up. Will you go with me?”
“I'll have to think about it.” She told him.
“Okay, I'll go with you.” She grinned. “Sucker.”
“Don't do that!” Peter said as he regained his composure. “Meanie.”
“Sir, we have to arrest them.” One deputy was saying to the Sheriff. “They're trespassing and have defaced private property.”
“Fine.” The Sheriff snarled. “Why aren't they awake?”
“We use a nonlethal security system.” Xander explained for the fifth time. “I've got some smelling salts with me, so you can Mirandize them and charge them.”
“Wake 'em up. One at a time.” The Sheriff said after a moment's thought. “You unmask them yet?”
“No, I figured I'd leave that to you sir.” Xander said.
“All right. Let's get this started.” The Sheriff said as he pulled the mask off of one of the unconscious vandals. “Wake him up.”
Xander snapped open the capsule of smelling salts under the kid's nose and he snorted as he woke up.
The Sheriff arrested each teen in turn.
After the authorities had driven off, Xander and Logan walked back into the house. It had been a long day and both were looking forward to unwinding in the Danger Room.
NCBC affiliate editing room....
“This is solid gold.” Trish Tilby said as she and her camera man reviewed the footage. There was so much that it'd have to either be done as an hour special or maybe even two. “Where can we start?”
“The beginning. Start with the initial footage from the Bayville incident, then the exterior shot of the compound here. After that, Mr. Lehnsherr's dropping in. We can do the one on one interviews later.” The Camera man suggested. “Insert the meaning of his tattoo too. Not everyone's going to catch on to what it is.”
“Let's do it.” She nodded. “We can't fuck this up Frank. No one else got in after us. We're lucky to have been given a day on this.”
“I know.” Frank sighed. “Think we'll be able to transfer to the big leagues after this?”
“God I hope so” Trish said. “I'm not getting any younger.”
“All right, today we're going to do something different.” Doom told the life form.
“What's that?” it asked him.
“We're going to go outside.” Doom told it. “I'm curious to see how you'll react to life on the surface.”
“Sounds..... fun. Is fun the right word?” The life form asked.
“It fits.” Doom agreed.
“All right, new tactic.” Scott said as the whole group entered the school via the third floor handicapped bathroom. “We won't give the picketers a chance to protest us directly. We'll just keep bypassing them. They can't kick us out for having abilities. It's not like we abuse them and disrupt the 'learning environment' anymore than the normal students.”
“Don't mind me, I'm just the ride.” Xander muttered. “You kids have a fun day, and don't start a riot.”
“We won't” The group promised.
Xander grinned and faded from sight.
“Now that big brother is gone,” Tabitha smirked. “What are the bets for today?”
“It's even money Matthews does something stupid.” Kitty said as she pulled out her PDA.
“Five to one he uses some epithet against mutants.” Todd added as he calculated the odds. “Any takers?”
Half the group raised their hands.
“I love the fun of betting pools in the morning.” Todd sighed as Kitty kept taking the bets.
“Son of a bitch!” Felicia Hardy swore. “How the fuck do you keep winning?”
“Does this mean you don't want to play for chores and sexual favors anymore?” Ben asked her. “This is my first time playing Chó-han.”
“I'm really good at this game.” Felicia whined. “Let's try another one.” She said. “Have you ever heard of Kitsune bakuchi?” She asked him.
“Explain the rules and we'll go from there.” Ben grinned.
“You and me are going gambling one night. You in a suit and me in a fancy evening gown. None of that Atlantic City crap either.” She growled. “Now the rules of Kitsune bakuchi go like this.....” She began.
“How long have they been playing dice?” Calvin asked Adrienne.
Adrienne touched the door frame of the kitchen. “Forty five minutes. He hasn't lost yet.”
“Great.” Calvin said. “Wonder if I got his luck too?”
“You're still too young to test it in a professional setting.” Adrienne reminded him. “Give it a couple of years.”
“So who's getting us breakfast since he hasn't made any?” Calvin wondered.
“You know where the closest McDonald's is.” She said with a shrug. “You know what I get. Get the same for Cordelia and take orders from Vance and Angelica.”
“Right.” Calvin nodded before going to find the other two house mates.
Forest Hills, Queens.....
“I'm not very happy with you at the moment.” Peter said to his Aunt as he did the dishes after breakfast.
“You know you asked for it.” His aunt grinned. “I don't want to be a Great Aunt for say another... six years or so.”
Peter almost broke the plate he was cleaning. “You're... really terrible sometimes you know?”
May shrugged. “I have to do twice the work to counter your teenage shenanigans. It's hard work, but fun too. So, are we heading back to Xavier's this summer?”
“I don't know.” Peter frowned. “It's kind of in the media spotlight right now. People might connect me and Mary Jane to it from when we went there last summer. If we go, we'd have to have some kind of cover.”
“You work for a newspaper...” May said as she trailed off in thought. “A summer as a regular boy among the superhuman.... Living with them, knowing them and how human they really are despite their powers.”
Peter grinned. “That's a heck of an idea Aunt May. I'll have to talk to my editor.”
“Do it soon Peter. We've no idea if the world is going to turn on the mutant population yet or not. The more good press they get the better.”
Peter's cell phone started ringing. He shut off the sink and dried off his hands before answering it. “Hello? Mary Jane... Hey. There's what on what channel? Really? It's being run on three channels? Thanks for the heads up. I'll see you at school.”
“What is it?” May asked.
“There's a news piece on the mutant sanctuary out in South Dakota.” Peter said as he moved to the living room. “It's on CBC and it's sister channels.” He turned on the TV and both he and his aunt watched the story about a holocaust survivor and later on in life, a master of magnetism.
The Daily Bugle....
“Son of a bitch.” J. Jonah Jameson said as the news broadcast switched to commercials. “That is one hell of a scoop.”
“No kidding.” Robbie said as he rubbed his face. “Things like this make me wish I hadn't given up smoking.”
“The sympathy levels they're going to get from the liberals and the Jews will be the stuff of legends.” Urich said as he took notes. “The people who did this can write their own ticket.”
“They only talked to one news crew.” Robbie said. “Smart, provided the crew weren't totally incompetent.”
“It's coming back on.” Jonah said as he sat up.
Everyone sat in silence, watching the story unfold.
“Dammit.” Graydon Creed swore. “Because they didn't finish the job, we've got a living Sonderkommando as the leader for a bunch of tree hugging mutants. We've got a long road ahead of us.”
“Yes, we do.” A voice said. “They'll see just what mutants are really like in time. You'll be proven right in the end. We'll win.”
“You're a good man Caleb.” Graydon said. “Any other advice?”
“Find a hacker, get rid of your arrest record.” Caleb said. “Our lord commands it.”
“I'll look into it. Any luck in finding out who my parents are?” Graydon asked. “That's one thing that been bothering me lately.”
“I know who they are, and you're not going to like it.” Caleb said.
“Tell me what you know.” Graydon said. “Lineage is important for people like us.”
“Well....” Caleb began.... “You're really, really not going to like this.”
“Son of a bitch!” Felicia swore. “How?” She cried. “How do you do this?”
“So, no more board games?” Ben asked her.
“No, there's still Scrabble.” Felicia snarled as she knocked the Monopoly game off the table. “There's no way you can beat me at that.”
“This is....” Vance sniffed. “So fun to watch.”
“Don't hog the popcorn.” Angelica said as she grabbed the bowl from Vance's hands.
“Where are Calvin and the others?” Vance asked her.
“Playing Twister.” Angelica told him.
“Man, I haven't played that in years. Think they'd let me join in?” Vance asked her.
“You'd better not!” Angelica snarled.
“What's the problem?” Vance asked her.
She whispered into his ear.
“Oh.” Vance said after a few moments. “Never mind then. Remind me to never use that particular Twister set.”
“Promise.” Angelica told him.
Doom winced as he watched the alien life form pet then maul the young deer. “Note to self, teach the life form proper table manners.” He said into his gauntlet.
Hopefully, the rest of the excursion would prove to be.... less eventful.
“All right, who bet that Duncan wouldn't be here today?” Kitty said as she looked over the bets. “Kurt wins... How did you know he'd gotten arrested?”
“I was there.” Kurt grinned as he collected his winnings. “Not my fault that none of you checked who was caught last night.”
“You're buying me some new outfits.” Wanda told him as she looped his arm with her own.
“Aww....” Kurt whined.
“You'll still have enough to buy yourself a giant cookie.” She promised him.
“To the Mall!” Kurt said before the two vanished in a puff of smoke.
Scott sighed. “Someone call Xander. Kurt was supposed to be the ride home today.”
“On it.” Todd said as he flipped open his watch.
