Who: Raven Darkholme, Logan Howlett, & Felix Jäger
Where: The Shreveport Police Station
When: Evening, just after the riot
Rating: PG
Summary: Raven infiltrates the Shreveport Police Station as Sheriff Kemp to look at look at the files on the James murder, just when Logan has the excellent timing to bring in a bounty.

Her eye caught on a polished plaque, extolling some merit of excellence, with the sheriff's name engraved in the metal. Briskly, she ripped it off the wall. A pirouetted glance around the room located the trash bin and she dropped the award into it. Thoughroughly satisfying, but not what she'd come for. )

reap what you sow

Who: Sheriff Kemp (NPC) and Open Magneto.
Where: The Kemp home, Shreveport Suburbs.
When: Just after the police station riot: Day 2, 2 a.m.
Rating: MA at the moment, but not for long. Pervasive, but mild language. One instance of strong language.

Mod Note: This thread is open to anyone seeking a little vigilante justice on -or 'private questioning' of- our Sheriff. Should a playable character not wish to reply, an NPC will be responsible for the attack on Kemp. News of his attack will spread by 9 a.m. Kemp will be alone in a hospital room by 2pm.

Each house sat neatly between two identical homes and two identical driveways. The only things that distinguished his own house from those of his immediate neighbors was the parked police cruiser and the polished brass 105 above the doorbell. )

Where: Grey family home; Annandale-on-Hudson
When: Summer, 1958. Five years ago.
Rating: Teen.
Summary: After completing his doctoral studies in psychology, Charles Xavier is contacted by a friend of the Grey family. Their daughter Jean has been hearing voices in her head, and in 1958, there aren't many treatments for perceived mental illness that aren't... radical.

The family here was in crisis, and he all but heard their silent cries for help behind their closed doors and shut windows. The family's collective stiff upper-lip did nothing to quiet them. )
