El has been with the site for nearly two years now and has continued to prove her value. Currently, she is heading up our site event, Battle for Liberterram, on top of keeping up with her own personal plots.
Lux's posts are all wonderful to read. She has done a wonderful job of grasping the new universe and incorporating Peggy into it.
It's good to see Spidey back on the site. Watching him deal with the universe shift in his own snarky way has been nothing short of entertaining.
Eight O'Clock on the Dot!
El and Lux are making magic in this thread. Straight up fireworks, and the way they've played with drawing out the reveal is top class.
~ IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER ~ Strikethrough = Abandoned Lay of the Land w/ z inactive ashermaestas Melinda decides to pay a visit to Xavier's Academy in order to meet the Professor and get a feel for the types of people she'll be trying to help while working on this new team with Coulson. Before the Professor is ready for her, she meets one of the school's residents, a young mutant by the name of Asher. The pair strike up an amicable conversation. By the time Xavier is ready, Melinda is impressed with the boy, while he's left with a possible new outlook on the future.
Post Mission Stitches w/ Jemma Simmons When Melinda and a STRIKE team return from a mission in bad shape, she is pleasantly surprised to find Agent Simmons helping out in the Medical Bay. The pair hold a light conversation about the STRIKE team's run-in with Centipede soldiers while Jemma patches Melinda up.
How to Crash a Party w/ @coulson && z inactive timothydugan && @bobbi && the Secret Warriors The first official Secret Warriors mission ends in success when the team infiltrates a black market gala, quickly and effectively putting a stop to the mutant auction about to take place. Agent Morse and Lady Sif work to retrieve any and all information they can get their hands on from the hosts so that the team can head off more of these illicit events in the future. Using her own mutant abilities, Agent Braddock leads the victims to safety while Agent Dugan plays driver to get the rest of the team in and out safely.
Frosty Pines w/ Megan Hopkins Melinda is sent out on a mission with a rookie shadow who is eager to prove herself in action. Megan's eagerness in conjunction with her decision to go on the mission knowing she is less than 100% due to an altercation the night previously, however, lead to a bit of a disaster. In the end, all of the hostages are saved, but multiple members of the terrorist organization escape with a their lives - and a valuable object.
A Mixture of Madness w/ Megan Hopkins && @barney && Nathaniel Essex An easy job goes horribly awry when Barney is seen stealing an unknown object from a terrorist cell as part of a job for Nathaniel Essex. Before he knows what's what, the elder Barton is being chased through the back streets by not only the bad men he stole from, but also a contingent of SHIELD agents who've also been trying to get their hands on the 0-8-4. All hell breaks loose when the three parties collide at an abandoned theater. Junior Agent Hopkins chases Essex, the holder of the 0-8-4, outside, but a stray bullet cracks the fragile item. Barney manages to take Agent May down using less-than-honorable tactics, but by the time he gets outside, all that's left are statues and two people fighting their way out of stone cocoons. By the time May comes to awhile later, Barney, Sinister, and Megan are long gone...
