What did I get myself into?

I want to be at this school. I want to meet other mutants and I want to learn about what I can do, because if I don't I'll do the walking strobe light thing again and wind up copying everyone's powers. As much as this mutant thing is pretty cool, I don't want to spend the rest of my life looking like something out of that Beatles movie. You know, the one where they're in the submarine and I think they're all really high?

I really want to be here. I do. But geez, some of the people here are kind of mean. Not everyone. There's really nice people too (Hi Sam!) and I think I just got a really grumpy welcome wagon. It's just making me stop and think, you know?

And now you're probably all wondering who the heck I am. Hi everyone. I'm Everett or Ev. I'm from St. Louis and I'm sixteen. I didn't even know I was a mutant until a couple of days ago, so learning about what I can do and what other mutants can do is going to be really cool. At least I hope it is. Let's see, what else... Oh yeah, my parents promised to send a big care package as soon as they go grocery shopping again, so if anyone wants lots of Snickers bars just let me know. I think there might be some healthy stuff in there, but we can just ignore it.

So. Um. Hi. Here I am. I'm going to write an email to my little sister and then I'm going to go exploring before I crash for the night. I hope I meet some of you today.

- Ev

Hey, man! Glad to see you posting and gettin' settled in.

Sorry about your roomies, but they're all great kids really. Just having a tough time of it these days, like I said.

I'm up and about if you wanna drop in while you're all exploring and stuff. :)

Thanks!

I saw what you wrote about someone named Jean. I don't know what happened, but I'm sorry. I just wish Bobby had been nicer.

's all good.

Someday you'll talk to him when he's being his normal cheerful self and you'll get it. :)

Hiya!

I'm Kitty, and it's nice to meet you. Trust me, we're not all nearly that bad. Something's just got Bobby in a snit (saw Sam's post about your trip up here...) Even he's not usually like this.

Anyways, welcome to the mansion, and it's good to have you here.

If you say so. I don't think he likes me very much.

Um, am I invited to your BBQ? I can't cook anything, but I can open packages of hot dog buns really fast.

Right now I don't think he likes anyone very much. If he gives you too much trouble just tell him to go away or hit him or something. Or tell one of the rest of us and we'll do it for you. He's kinda earned a few thumps...

And of course you're invited! Everybody who wants to come is invited.

Um, do I have to hit him? I really don't want to. Maybe you can hit him and I can just kind of stand behind you and look smug? I think I can do that.

Thanks. I'd love to come to the BBQ.

Hmm... actually, not all that big on the hitting either. I'm good at taunting though. I could taunt him until he's had enough while you looked smug.

Excellent. :)

Snickers is my favorite!!!!

Hi Ev, I am Piotr.. I did not see you today but maybe I will see you tomorrow. I have a little sister too, her name is Illyana.

I'll let you know when my mom and dad send me Snickers. I'll make sure they send extra. Best candy ever.

My sister's name is Kim. She's only a little younger than me and she's a brat, but in a good way.

Thank you that is so nice!

Kim is a pretty name. I hope you do not miss her too much.

I do miss her a little bit. I think she kind of wants to be a mutant to, but I don't think she is. She's the one who came up with my code name thing. I'm named after a band and I can't even play the kazoo. I wanted to be The Amazing Faxman, but I can't say no to her.

Trust me, man, your sister had the right idea. ;)

What's wrong with The Amazing Faxman? Then I could have a sidekick named Xerox Boy. And a Fax Signal. You know, like the Bat Signal, but with a fax. And I could say "Quick Xerox Boy! To the Faxmobile!"

But no leotards. I don't like them.

How do you feel about black leather?

A leather jacket would be cool. Do we get leather jackets?

From: [identity profile] x-cannonball.livejournal.com
Well. Not yet.

And it'll be much more that just a jacket. ;)

Uh. Oh. Good? Yay?

Can I just be a mutant in a tee shirt and jeans? I can have a token jacket.

Hey, are you still taking auditions for Xerox Boy? I could so be Xerox Boy.

Really? Cool! But I get to drive the Faxmobile.

I think we should have a theme song.

From: [identity profile] x-crowdofone.livejournal.com
We should definitely have a theme song.

And somebody else should definitely sing it. Even the shower doesn't make me sound good, and I'd go into more detail except the person whose songs I was singing most of the time might be reading this and I'd rather continue to get along with her. :)

Hey, Everett. I'm Jamie. Just got here last night from my parents' place in Kansas, and I'm still kinda getting settled in. Guess I lucked out in the welcome wagon department--only had one grumpy guy on my flight. I guess they've had some pretty rough times around here lately; people seem kind of on edge, you know?

But it's a really great place.

Oh, hey, and if you end up copying my powers--nifty ability, that, it's like having potluck--what I do is, when I get hit I split into duplicates of myself. I can suck the dupes back in pretty easy, but it took me a while to figure that out the first time, so fair warning. :) If you can't get it to work I'll walk you through it, don't be afraid to ask.

Nice to meet you, man.

From: [identity profile] x-synch.livejournal.com
They should screen the welcome wagon. You know, have applications or something.

I'm probably going to need help at some point. At least it's pretty obvious when I'm copying people's powers. Maybe when I get it under control we can have a dance party or something and I can be the strobe light. And if I copy your power, we can have lots of strobe lights.

Wow. I think I need to go to bed before I get even less coherent.

Date: 2003-05-19 08:51 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-crowdofone.livejournal.com
Heh. Maybe they should, yeah.

And part of the deal around here is helping us control our powers, so they'll probably do their best to help you.

A dance party might be a neat idea. Not like we're not swimming in cute girls around here, after all. :)

I hope they help some. The only time I did the strobe light thing, I grew claws. OW.

Claws? That must have been a world of no fun. Geez.

First time it happened to me, I was climbing this tree, and fell out--knocked the wind out of me, blacked out, and woke up seeing double. Literally. Strangest darn thing. I thought I was disoriented at first, and then my mom came out to see what had happened . . . and it turns out she'd gotten twins. That was a weird day.

Welcome to the school, Everett. I didn't get a chance to meet you today, but I think I saw you in the hallways a few times -- I teach biology and Field Medicine, and I've got office hours tomorrow morning, if you're interested in taking those classes or if you'd just like to drop by and have some early morning donuts which will beat the pants off of Snickers bars in terms of malnutritive value and taste.

From: [identity profile] x-synch.livejournal.com
Do they make Snickers-flavored donuts? Dunkin Donuts should do that. They would make a fortune.

I took Honors Biology in high school, but I don't really know if they have anything like that here. I guess you guys don't have AP classes. Maybe I can talk to you about that tomorrow. It's nice to meet you, ma'am.

What did I get myself into?

You've actually locked yourself in a loony bin with half-crazed mutants all suffering from raging hormones.

No, better yet.

How about you've come to a place you'll look to as home, in time. Welcome to the Academy, Everett. I'm Professor Braddock and hopefully, I'll see you before you get too settled. If you can't find me, I'll be the only professor who has a sense of humor. It shouldn't be too hard, I'm always roaming the halls.

I'll be teaching Creative Writing and a Sociology course later on. Hopefully, you'll find your inner writer and take my class. But, if not, if you ever have trouble sleeping, come find me. I'll definitely be awake as I've designated myself the Academy's live-in vampire.

Once again, Welcome to Xavier's School.

I don't think I'm going to be settled for a while, but I'd like to talk to you when you're not busy. I'd like to take your classes, especially Sociology. I've never tried Creative Writing before, but I think I should. My little sister says I'm really boring, so I have to prove her wrong.

Don't worry, I stay up really late too sometimes. I'm probably going to hide in the library until my roommates go to sleep. Maybe we can talk later.

Believe me when I say this: Siblings are Evil.

I think from what I've seen so far, you'll be just fine in taking the writing course. And I'm glad you've volunteered for MAS. I was quite worried that no one would take to it.

Who wants to hear the truth when we can stay lost in dreams.

Ev, I'll be walking the grounds later. Join me.

I think I saw you with Sam earlier, but I don't think we got introduced. I'm Kurt, and I'm Sam's roommate, so feel free to stop by whenever you feel like it, but be prepared for country music and a love of horses.
