Canon Break: Post series
Powers: Way too many to list. Main ones are Regen, telekinesis and intuitive aptitude.
Eternity sounds like such a wonderful thing but if you don't have something to keep your mind occupied you can start to lose touch. I needed something to anchor me to this life, my reality. At first I had Peter and my hatred of him. Our fights were wonderful and epic but then it wasn't enough. It was the same thing over and over because neither of us could die. So I sent him away, I didn't know where nor did I care.
Problem was, without him I didn't have anything to keep me centered so I had to do the next best thing. I started a family. Yes, I know, it doesn't sound like me but I remember reading Adam Monroe's file. He'd done the same thing so he would always have an anchor in time. Thing was, he never had anything to do with them, he just watched them but never interfered. That's where we differed. I interfered. I maneuvered things, used circumstances. I knew eventually there had to be another like me, I couldn't be the only one. The same with Peter, eventually there had to be another like him and I wanted to be ready when they did.
I saw the earth falling apart and took the opportunity. I wanted power but I didn't want the limelight, I worked better in the shadows. I became a ghost in the Alliance, the person they came to when they needed something done and no one else could do it. Better to be the puppet master than the puppet. I used them, of course, to watch my family and try to find the right one. The one like me.
When they created the Suresh academy, I about laughed my head off. Ironic but oh so fitting, but without it I never would've found him. Michael, my descendant, my protege. He's the reason I've been watching my family, he will be my companion and if anything ever does happen to me, he'll be the one to carry on. For now it serves our purposes to let the Alliance think we work for them but at some point, things will change.
And we'll be ready.
Peter’s spent the last few nights in the bed and it’s been nice. We haven’t done more than kiss from time to time and I’m glad. I still can’t get the movies out of my head and how I’d even be able to do those things with him. At least he hasn’t pushed it and I haven’t had to try.
I’m getting used to feeling him sleeping next to me. I didn’t think I’d be able to sleep with another body in the small bed and I couldn’t, at first. But I’ve slowly gotten used to it and the warmth of him against my back is comforting, along with hearing him breathe. The fear of those first few nights when he first came here have finally faded away. I actually like the fact that I can fall asleep, knowing he’s right here with me. Thank god he can’t read minds, not sure I’d want him knowing all that.( Read more...Collapse )
Which is why I find myself in this shithole of a motel, laying on a crappy mattress and practicing my latest power. It's not great but at least it's something. It's a weaker version of ice than the one I had before but it will do until something better comes along. At least I'm not completely helpless, I have managed to find half a dozen powers so far.
Stopping for now, I lay back on the bed and stare up at the ceiling. If I remember right, there's someone with fire somewhere around here. Debating on getting something to eat, a noise outside makes me jerk up. They can't have found me, it's impossible. They don't have the little girl helping them anymore and I know there's no tracking devices on me, I made sure of that as soon as I could. Could just be someone going to their room but as if I'm going to relax my guard on a maybe. I watch the door carefully, waiting to see if someone is there or not.
