    Indeed, and speaking of Lullaby, would they put her on a combat team expected to go out in the field? She's a teen, single mom after all.

      Depends on what the teams are for.
      If the teams are for field deployment I suspect the composition would be very different.

      If they're just doing it as a means of keeping the students trained so that they can defend themselves it would make sense that everybody is going to be training.
      I mean the school itself has been attacked three times, even if we don't want Lullaby to hit the field we do want her capable of defending herself if something else comes into the school.

          Aye, although the next few sessions are designed to progress the timeline. A couple of weeks will pass between sessions. It's to be hoped that before long, we'll be in the next school year, and I'll be listing them both as Freshmen.

          For instance, NVAE #18 will begin a couple of weeks after this one, with the first exercise of the final teams, after which, Newton will pull Lex, Martin, and Violet aside for a recruitment mission. The current session's date is the same date as the end of Magnus and Maria's honeymoon, meaning the beginning of the outbreak at the other school, meaning the time period when Talley is in America. You'll be asked to vet the new doctor--make sure he's not actually Tallemaja, or a new threat... things like that. Why those three? You'll see. The Volunteers will get a request to protect some visiting diplomats to the UN. Jack, Otso, and Gwyn, meanwhile, will deal with the fallout from Tallemaja's big move.

          Then, a couple of weeks will pass. NVAE #19 will (hopefully--you guys could potentially derail my plans) see Martin and Gwyn investigating a disappearance and will introduce new villains whose names you've heard before, and some of the new training you've picked up will come in handy--not just in regards to punching people, but actually getting to be super-heroes and saving lives.

          Then, a few weeks will pass, NVAE #20. Weeks pass, #21, ect.

          Exactly. This isn't training them to be Vindicators, but sort of... "Okay, if things hit the fan again, let's show you all how to deal with it..." Sarah's pregnancy is something that will keep her from most exercises, as the faculty will be careful not to hurt the baby, and Quwah's absolute pacifism will likewise remove him from anything centered around violence. Still, the boy is super-strong, and if the objective is... say... locate and free civilians pinned in a collapsed building following an earthquake? He comes in handy and never has to throw a punch, thus meaning he's taking part... whether he likes it or not.

            Dang it. I posted last night but it didn't take. Now lex had a chance to be dumb. I hate that.

                Well, Lex has stunted some crowd clearing attacks before, so it's not like he's completely SOL...

                But since there are people in the way of the door he's moving at human speeds, not super speed so if Martin wishes to offer a secondary solution he's still around to hear it.

                  I like this plan. Getting to see that the school isn't a constant target will make it seem like it's actually viable to maintain its existence.

                    I can only imagine how much fallout there's going to be with the public after the third attack on the school in a year's time.

                      So I've been looking at that last picture for a while now and I've got to say... even throwing in my self centered love of seeing my own characters drawn... Narwhal is still my favorite.
                      I just love how he looks for some reason.

                      It's a great picture of Lex, H&H. The sunglasses remind me of some concepts I'd had for Lex's Vindicator uniform before he moved to a point where I couldn't see him suiting up under their uniform.
                      I suppose it was mostly just BMX, rollerblading style gear with some eye protection, gloves with the little brakes build in by the palm/wrist for if you took a tumble and needed to stop.

                      Anyways, Cool pictures. Thanks for sharing!

                        No problema. I've got 4 to go yet, plus a bonus pic of Lex and Martin , since personally I'm not super enthused about how either of those pictures turned out. Even though these are all characters likely consigned to the dustbin of NV fanfic, I'd like to have 'em go out with pics I'm pleased with.

                        Thanks for the nice praise though. I appreciate it.

                          First, off! Unless my mutant power of remembering people's birthdays has failed me, tomorrow should be Old Man Shock's birthday. Many returns of the day, Shock! Have three hero points that may come in use come the time I finish up my post.

                          Also, I keep forgetting to mention that I sort of ignored TM's birthday back on the 8th. I hope it was awesome birthday, sir. Take three hero points and my belated wishes for a joy-filled day!

                                The first OOC post for casting was 1/1/2010 and the IC thread went live 2/1/2010. We're going on 5 years of play...with 5 of the original players and 3 of the original characters still involved.

                                Go us.
