elsewhere in the mansion - the danger room is getting a work out (open)  
It is a new day and Jubilee is in the danger room. Trying to regain control of her powers once again. The exercise is one that is simple enough since she was still having problems controlling some of her abilities.

However, despite the level only on setting three. Jubilee found herself exhausted and frustrated at the end. The last five targets she missed completely. And her piffs were almost out of control on her fingertips.

Frustrated — she started to pound on a nearby wall. Her piffs getting more and more intense as her anger got the better of her.

And then... BOOM her powers exploded in the fury of her anger. It was a good thing the Danger Room had protection against this kind of thing. And upset about it all, Jubilee fell to her knees in tears.

John arched an eyebrow as she bursted into tears. He had been watching her display of powers and well, he hadn't been impressed, of course, but still...

"What's up with you?" he asked as the simulation disappeared around them.

|ooc: Hope it's okay to tag this thread. :) Also, Pyro needs a tag. I can't seem to add a tag for him in any of the entries.|

Jubilee flinched, she had no idea that he had been watching her. Nervously she looked away, hiding her tear strained face.

"It is nothing." She was lying. Of course.

((no probs. and tags away))

"Do you always suck at controlling your powers?" He was just curious, really. She was an X-Man but he'd never fought a battle with her before.

"No!" She glared at him. "I just have been having problems since I was almost killed. Okay?"
St. John Allerdyceallerdyce_john on July 12th, 2007 01:32 pm (UTC)
"Right." He nodded and took a step forward. "Mind telling me about that?" He remembered she'd mentioned that she'd almost being killed the night he'd first arrived at the mansion, but he'd been too tired to bother asking her about it.

Jubilee looked at him for a moment, before taking a breath to calm herself down. Looking down at the ground, ashamed of herself, she muttered a response. "They used me as a way to test a beta strain of the mutant cure. And then they just used me. And then they tried to kill me."
St. John Allerdyceallerdyce_john on July 12th, 2007 01:38 pm (UTC)
Well, that got his interest, alright. He sat next to her and leaned his forearm on his knee.

"The Friends of Humanity."
St. John Allerdyceallerdyce_john on July 12th, 2007 01:56 pm (UTC)
He frowned at hearing that. The FOH was no stranger to him, he'd gotten into fights with them before. "When was this? When did it happen?"
in_jubilation on July 12th, 2007 02:05 pm (UTC)
"About four months ago." Jubilee is still staring at the ground, ashamed about it all really.
St. John Allerdyceallerdyce_john on July 15th, 2007 04:34 am (UTC)
He nodded. "If you want to talk about it, I'm all ears. If you don't, I can offer to help you out with your powers practice." He shrugged. "Or I can leave you alone and you can just -- continue on with your...crying."

"I fell like it was my fault. And now it is screwing up my powers cause they are based on my emotions. And besides... I do not want to screw up and blow up around you. I would hate to hurt you."
St. John Allerdyceallerdyce_john on July 15th, 2007 04:48 am (UTC)
He smirked. "Highly unlikely," he said. "Besides I've got a high tolerance for pain." John pulled a pack of smokes out of his pocket and slipped a cig between his lips, ignoring the obvious fact that no one's allowed to smoke in the Danger Room, then again, the Wolverine was always doing it with his goddamn cigar. "Why'd you think it was your fault?" he asked. "Is it because you got caught?"
in_jubilation on July 15th, 2007 04:50 am (UTC)
"They said it was my fault. For being a mutie. That I deserved it." Jubilee mutters, not really looking at him.
St. John Allerdyceallerdyce_john on July 15th, 2007 04:57 am (UTC)
He snorted. "Figured as much," he said. "It's their standard line." He lighted his cigarette then offered her a smoke.
in_jubilation on July 15th, 2007 05:07 am (UTC)
She shook her head to the offer of a smoke. "I just feel so... wrong."
St. John Allerdyceallerdyce_john on July 15th, 2007 05:15 am (UTC)
"You know you're just letting them get the better of you, right?" John said. "You should fight back." He took a long drag of his cig. "Feel angry. Feel pissed. But don't feel sorry for yourself."
in_jubilation on July 15th, 2007 05:20 am (UTC)
"I know. And I want to... I just do not know where to start!"
St. John Allerdyceallerdyce_john on July 15th, 2007 05:27 am (UTC)
"You could try chaneling your anger into your powers. But you gotta try to focus." He leaned back on his hand. "On say, a pretend enemy. And not yourself?"
in_jubilation on July 15th, 2007 05:35 am (UTC)
"Focusing my anger into my powers gives me a lot of energy to burn. And I can do it. I have done it before." Slight look at him at that. "It does not hurt me when I explode on myself. At least there is that."

"Just do not know who to focus that sort of energy on. Ya know. Wolvie... sort of took care of all the Friends when he found out."
St. John Allerdyceallerdyce_john on July 21st, 2007 08:28 pm (UTC)
"Have you spoken to Wolverine lately?" John asked. "Maybe if you talked to him, he can help you get through this rut." He shrugged. "If I were you, I'd stopped feeling sorry for myself and start focusing all of that anger on something constructive." He smirked a little. "Being in the Brotherhood is a good thing. Starting riots, blowing up buildings and getting into a fight is all sorts of appealing when you're angry and when you're part of an "evil" organization, it's completely okay to seek revenge."
in_jubilation on July 22nd, 2007 01:18 am (UTC)
"Wolvie left and has not been seen ina bit. Doing his own thing."

"I could focus it on a sparring match with you."
St. John Allerdyce: Goodbyeallerdyce_john on July 23rd, 2007 01:34 pm (UTC)
"I don't hit girls," John said. "Especially one who's prone to crying."
in_jubilation on July 23rd, 2007 11:27 pm (UTC)
"You battled X-Men before." Glare.
St. John Allerdyce: Cheekyallerdyce_john on July 23rd, 2007 11:42 pm (UTC)
"Can't afford to be choosy when I'm working on a mission objective on the field." He smarted out a grin.

"Guess we could set a date for a sparring session then." John stubbed his cigarette out. "Can't do it right now as I'm still recovering from a gunshot wound. And I wouldn't want you to go easy on me." He smirked.
in_jubilation on July 24th, 2007 02:10 am (UTC)
"That would work. Thanks John." Jubilee managed a smile.

"So as apology for dumping all this on an injured due, what you say I treat you to ice cream?"
St. John Allerdyce: God Among Insectsallerdyce_john on July 24th, 2007 02:37 am (UTC)
"How about a beer if you can find one in the mansion," John said as he got up to a stand. Obviously, he was kidding.

"Guess ice cream doesn't sound too bad. The high sugar content's bound to put a more genuine smile on your face."
in_jubilation on July 24th, 2007 03:52 am (UTC)
"I could raid Wolvie's stash, but it is your hide if we are caught."

She stood to her feat, "ice cream and chocolate sauce and maybe even fruit!" There was more of a real smile growing there.
