Location: Los Angeles | LA Battle Zone
Time: Morning

With the grand entrance of parachuting unknown, it seemed that many of the soldiers, guards, and killer nuns began to gather near the area, all armed. "Calm down, if he wanted to kill me he would already have." The President's hand came up and all personnel lowered their weapons, still cautious of the new arrival. While they know that their President has killed numerous and unknown amounts of people, this person could be completely different or with different abilities.

The soldiers and guards gave them space, some getting back to their duties and some just giving them a bit of space. The assassin Nuns though stayed very close, both worried about the President and the Advisor. "I would give out your name and reason before your picture is sent out to all my facebook friends ... and agencies, I don't know what you would be worried of more." The President gave a humorous shrug.

The Advisor in the meantime looked at Merlin, feeling the very powerful feeling of magic. A smile came under the hood, he went to whisper to the President once more. "Really? Like you? Hmm ... " The President said as he look went to Merlin, examining the weird looking figure. "... I thought a wizard would look ... less retarded?" He said outlout, allowing Merlin to almost give him a vile look before rethinking of his position.

More whispering from the Hooded Man and finally the President gave up.
"Fine ... we're taking this man. For non-violent reasons of his own."
Merlin's look was almost bright. "Uh, thank you sir." He said moving towards the man but stopping, almost getting another gun pointed at him. It seemed that he went out of one crazy party to another, but is this one less "selfish" ... Merlin was now worried.

"Back to you Mr ... Kaz?" Boss President said with forgetfulness, scratching his head. "But I wouldn't say that, they are already grounded for 10 weeks for hacking into my porn stash. It is all digital these day. One reason why I want to change this country. No man or woman should fear having their porn uncovered!" He gave a epic pose with his arm stretched out, his voice now booming.

Posing for a few more seconds he turned around. Giving his finger a twirling motion, as if imitating a helicopter, yet as that signal was given, everything an everyone was starting to move out. Helicopters started flying, cars started to drive. "Back to the point, you get your ass out of here and pay for your ... damages. And you tell us why the hell you are here! And who the hell is he !?" He pointed to Kazuya, then to Matt, and then finally to the captive of Matt.

This all happens as the large army convoy starting moving out around them.

Right before their eyes Matt's army fatigues changed into a business suit. "The name's Matt Hargreave, professional assassin and mercenary leader. All the agencies already know who I am and employ my services. My prisoner here is Dr. Ashford but I don't know what his field of study is because I don't care. As for my employer, he simply goes by Mr. Black," Matt finished explaining before handing his business card to the President.

Rugal

Rugal kept up his attack while Kalastryn cast that spell on him, causing him to pause for a moment as the effects began to take root.
"...Kala, what did you do to m-!!!" He spoke, too soon as his mass suddenly began to increase, doubling his size, strength and height and nearly causing him to smash his head off the ceiling.
While he had grown used to feeling sudden magical buffs flow over his person, the manner of which this one took effect did throw him off a little until he processed what it did to his fighting power.
"...Alright, who's next?!" He roared at the Shadows as he managed to fight side by side with his own Persona.

Deadshot

Deadshot meanwhile was starting to get back on his feet, though there was most likely a few screws knocked out of place as he did.
Still retching slightly from the blood all over, he was starting to realize that his perception of reality might have been affected by the blunt force trauma he had just endured.
"Take what you want sexy leprechaun, just don't shoot me with that dart gun..oooohh..." He slurred as he saw a massive german man in the background.
"...Did someone slip me with a roofie?..." He whined as he held his head in pain.

Time: Morning

...I am in a calm lake, waiting for a lazy fish on my lone fishing boat... Kazuya told himself, truth be told, he was wondering how the hell this man managed to get elected.
"While I would suggest to Merlin to stay with my company, he is his choice to stay or leave." He reminded the President, not wanting Merlin to end up working for the US and possibly leaking anything about his company in the process.
As this was going on, Matt introduced himself, prompting Kazuya to wonder why he didn't recognize him sooner.
"Mr. Hargreave. Long time no see, Last I checked, your people were still working from that old Airship, correct?" He then asked, wondering if he could score a lift or at least a reason to leave this excuse for a President.

James/Akari | Edge | Kazuya | Mr. President | Hargreave
Location: Los Angeles | LA Battle Zone
Time: Morning

When Matt told him that he was a leader of a group and an assassin, he gained an eye from the President. "Hmm ... assassin huh. Well son you just got some of my respect, I was in the assassin game. Except back then I had to wear a hotdog suit sometimes." The President said as he began to eye Merlin and Kazuya. "But it seems I have no quarrel with someone who works for the country. You can leave without no problem, or we can give you a life ... your choice." The President said as he waved again and the guards around Matt completely went away, back to their evacuation.

Once more, the killer Nuns stayed nearby. "As for the Wizard ... " He gave a curious look to his Advisor, who only gave a nod in return. "He will come with us, of course if he is okay with it." He announced, looking to Merlin he only just gave a nod, a weird feeling coming off the Advisor. "Now with that said ... I need to get back to DC, I have a meeting with the United Nations ... in which I need to call North Korea a bitch." The President said before walking, turning back towards Kazuya.

"I'll be expecting to see repairs as you said ... and let our next meeting ... be more organized on your part." The Boss President said, a large Military transport aircraft came in quickly, painted in purple and looking "totally pimped out". The President easily walked into the back. Than followed by The Advisor, Merlin guarded by the killer Nuns and a long pause if Matt wanted a ride.

"Yeah and I had another one built as well but it looks more like what S.H.I.E.L.D. uses since it's more cost effective. Based out in the Indian Ocean and where I'm headed if you need a lift to anywhere," Matt said as his humvee drove up to him with no driver in it. "Sorry Mr. President but I got my own ride to catch," he said to the President as the humvee morphed into a black Rolls-Royce Phantom. Matt gagged the doctor before putting him in the backseat and getting behind the wheel himself.

Selena | Vanessa
Location: Pacific Ocean
Time: Morning

As Selena and Vanessa kept following the Air convey, Vanessa began to pick up some of the Radio signals in the air from the pilots to their Headquarters.
"Attention Air Unit Leader, this is Fab-V calling, Picking up a pair of un-declared passagers on your read out, Over."
"Errr, Air Leader to Base, that was not your authorized call-sign. High Priority Civilians Inbound with the Cargo, Over."
"Ohhhh, That explains it then. Mind putting them on....Oh! Over."

The pilot shrugged a little before he glanced over to the duo on the broomstick.
"Errrr...Phone Call?" He asked them before motioning for them to get onto the Helicopter, unless Vanessa had a way of remotely doing it.

Selena | Vanessa
Location: Pacific Ocean
Time: Morning

Over the course of her conversation with Selena, Vanessa slowly but surely got used to the broom and flying, her death grip on the stick of wood slowly loosening up. She jolted a bit in her seat as she began to notice the radio signals going back and forth between the pilot and base. She giggled a small bit at the mention of Fab-V, but that moment of joviality diminished a small bit as the mention of 'cargo' suddenly came up. While she hadn't been in this world very long at all and had found herself on the remnants of a battlezone, she was curious about what it was the planes were carrying, aside from the high-priority civilians. That had to have been the group.... right?

Once the pilot waved for them to hop on the helicopter, Vanessa held out a hand and shook her head. Taking out her PDA and using it as a radio transceiver (and after a few moments of screwing around with frequencies), her voice would ring, clear as a bell on the airwaves. "You asked for us? ...um, Over." ...Do they always need to say that?

Selena | Vanessa | Violet
Location: Pacific Ocean
Time: Morning

Her message was quickly picked up by the man on the other end of the line, Vanessa getting a prompt for a Video call.
Once she answered, she got a live feed of the Jackass on the line.
"Oh Excellent! Yes, Just wanted to extend the Welcome Wagon. My name is Dr. Violet. I work for Kazuya's people, just saw you coming up on the radar and wanted to know who this wonderful beauty coming my way was? Must be Destiny, no?"
Within the first few seconds of their conversation, she could just tell she was going to love talking to this man.

Captcha: Beautiful Friendship

Selena | Vanessa | Violet
Location: Pacific Ocean
Time: Morning

Vanessa blinked twice as the prompt for a video call popped up suddenly. Accepting it rather quickly, the feed would pop up as a hologram floating a bit above her PDA screen. Listening to Dr. Violet talk caused her to smile uneasily. ....This is going to be a really long day, isn't it...? She thought to herself before nodding toward the holographic casanova, chuckling a little nervously, despite her attempt to hide that from her tone. "Nice to meet you, Dr. Violet... and thank you for the... kind words..." She said, struggling to keep her smile on. She let it drop afterward as she immediately got to the point. "I'm glad to see that your corporation is so welcoming to outsiders, but there's just one thing I'd like to ask... What's this cargo that the pilots were speaking of earlier? Is it anything we should be concerned about?"

Selena | Vanessa | Violet
Location: Pacific Ocean
Time: Morning

"Oh, you mean Darkside? Nevermind about him, Hell, I think the only reason your carrying him over is because Kazuya though the Americans were going to do something with him." Violet then answered, bringing Vanessa's attention to the bagged object that one of the helicopters were carrying.
"Odds are once he gets here, we'll bag and tag him before we dump him in the Vault. All in a days work, nothing special, but that's not important. No, The real question is: What are you doing tonight?" He then asked, dropping any pretext as the Convoy began to near the city of Tokyo as they made their way to the Tallest building in the city.

Selena | Vanessa | Violet
Location: Pacific Ocean
Time: Morning

Looking toward their destination, the labcoated woman let out a low whistle. "Quite the place... I really hope that's an indication of the quality of living inside...." She mumbled, mainly to herself, before looking back to the projection of Violet. "I can't say I wouldn't try to experiment on a monster given the chance..." Vanessa said, looking off to the side for a moment before sighing. Her right eyebrow visibly rose as the Vault was mentioned. "...The Vault? Is that like a company bestiary?" She asked, interest rising in her voice.

Her smile faltered again as Violet kept pressing on. ....Oh dear... I don't want to lie to him... but I really don't want to be shoved into a date here... Then again, maybe he'll show me around town and get me acquainted with everything... He might not be as bad as he's talking right now... hopefully. She worked out a decision in her head and looked toward Violet once more, smiling a bit more genuinely. "...You know the answer to that. I did just arrive in this world less than a hour ago..."

Selena | Vanessa | Violet
Location: Pacific Ocean
Time: Morning

"Oh! Excellent! I'll tell security to send you up once you land!" Violet said, clearing taking her answer as a yes as the first boots began to hit the ground, landing on flatbed trucks parked in the middle of that seemed to otherwise be a normal business district, hell, it was like this was a daily part of the morning commune!
Once Selena had landed on the street, the Soldiers then began to enter the lobby of the building, quickly starting to unwind as they entered, a few of them undoing their gear as they mingled with the white collar workers.
As that was going on, one of the elevators dinged, marking the appearance of her would be suitor as he waltz up to her.
"WELCOME! Welcome to our business and to our world Ms...Miss...Oh! I was so enamored by your appearance I forgot to ask for your name!" He said, just as annoying in person as he was on the hologram.
"...Or should I say "Names"?...Hello..." He then added as he saw Selena standing beside Vanessa, giving her a wink from behind his glasses.

Selena | Vanessa | Violet
Location: Tokyo
Time: Late Morning

With the planes all landing on various trucks, Vanessa rubbed her chin a small bit. There's no way this is normal behavior... Just how connected is Mr. Mishima...? Does this company run this entire city? She vaguely listened to the last few bits of what Violet said over the call before they touched down.

Once she landed, Vanessa was surprised to see Violet rushing up to her in almost no time at all. ...Wh-What happened to sending me up..?! Agh... I'm totally going to regret this later..... She sighed a bit before looking toward the man and nodding, holding out her hand to shake. "Oh... Sorry for neglecting my manners there... I'm Vanessa Sinclair. N-Nice to meet you in person..." She said, pausing a small bit as nearly every fiber in her being and every message from her AI was telling her to turn and run far, far away as she refused to move.

Selena could sense Vanessa's distress,
"I'm Selena, I've heard you guys are very very good at looking for people,, I really really need to find someone" she took a few steps getting quite close, she batted her eyelashes s her sapphire eyes sparkled
Well that settles it I have no shame I'm flirting with, from what Icarus mentioned, a massive womanizer just to get information, You are terrible. this discomfort didn't show on her face though.

Selena | Vanessa | Violet
Location: Tokyo
Time: Late Morning

"Well, it's nice to met the both of you. Shall I show you were the Magic happens?" Violet then said as he motioned for them to follow him into the elevator, hitting the button for the 69th floor.
Within the minute, they were at his personal lab, the Technology within being rather advanced for 2014.
"Ahhh, Home Sweet Home. Sorry in advance, there was a big of "Re-design" not long ago so I'm still working out where everything is!" He explained to his guests as he showed him around.
"So before I go looking for that special someone for dear Selena here, I hear Miss Sinclair here has just landed in our little patch of heaven. Mind telling me where you were before that?" He asked as he reached into one of the pods in the enter of the room, pulling out a pair of chilled wine bottles and some glasses.
"Ladies...Red or White?"

Selena | Vanessa | Violet
Location: Tokyo
Time: Late Morning

Huh...? She's looking for someone...? Vanessa thought for a moment as she looked at Selena batting her eyelashes at Violet. They must be important if she's trying to flirt with this guy, of all people... Suppressing a groan at the number of the button Violet had pressed, the scientist's mood brightened as she walked into Violet's lab.

...Gigolo or not, he knows his tech.... I feel at home already~ She smiled as she looked the place over and managed to snap out of it as Violet asked about her whereabouts before the teleporter accident. "Well... I was trying to develop an interdimensional teleporter, and something went awry. I was attempting to fix it and shut the teleporter down, but something blew and ripped open a portal. The explosion shoved me through it and the portal closed since it was too unstable." She said, shaking her head politely as the wine was offered. "I don't hold alcohol well... Thank you though."

Selena | Vanessa | Violet

Time: Late Morning

"Yes, Teleportation Technology can be very unstable. Why, I'm lucky myself that I haven't been sent into a strange world all alone..." Violet said as he filled himself a glass of wine.
"Well, it's a good thing you came to us! We have the means to send you back! It's as simple as just getting an address for your home realm, something that shouldn't be too hard with the two of us working together." He then cheerfully said before taking a victory sip.
"As for you Selena, Just give me a name and general appearance and I'll punch it into the computer and have our guys track them down. I don't mean to brag, but I'm almost certain that our networks are un-matched at this field." He then said to the witch, clearly feeling like some sort of hero as he pulled out a tablet, ready to take down any info that the two women could provide about their situations.

Selena knew she'd have to play this just right.
"His name Is Icarus, He fled somewhere I doubt he'd be missed he has black angelic wings and has an....," she faltered Icarus being part angel looked really cute, but she couldn't say that to Violet
Luckily she didn't have to Violet's eyes widened He probably remembered the name mentioned.
"It's very very Important I find him. You could do that for me couldn't you" she said trying to sound as sweet as honey. Selena took out a potion she may have to use one of her potions of this, if only to not draw attention to what her plans were.

The woman nodded, looking more serious than anything. "Sorry, I can only tell you the world I'm from is called Terra-6. I hadn't thought far enough to think of coordinate systems just yet." Letting out a sigh at what Violet had said, she realized that she'd have to work with this womanizer to get herself and the rest of these people back home to where they belonged.. provided she wasn't the only one...

"I'll be looking forward to working with you on the teleporter then, Dr. Violet." Vanessa stated, eyes looking resolute.

James/Akari | Edge | Kazuya | Mr. President | Hargreave
Location: Los Angeles | LA Battle Zone
Time: Morning

Kazuya merely rolled his eyes before he began to head towards Hargreave's car, kinda glad that the president was leaving.
"Just drop me off back in Tokyo. You know, I really helps me sleep at night when I know such a man is just a few buttons away from nuclear war..." He sighed as the President began to head off, watching as the Merc shoved some doctor into the car.
"...Before I agree to anything, Mind telling me why exactly you are kidnapping this doctor? Private Sector work is usually driven by revenge so I'd rather not be tied into it if at all possible..." He did said as he looked at the Doctor, trying to figure out if he knew him from somewhere.

Selena | Vanessa | Violet
Location: Floor 69, G-corp, Tokyo, Japan.
Time: Late Morning

"Terra-6? Hmmmm, I don't know what Realm that's in...Still, I might be able to use the data from your last teleport in order to track it down. It was in the LA area, right?" Violet said as he remotely accessed one of the consoles on the far side of the room with his tablet, bringing up a scan of the city after the attack.
"It might take a while, these kind of operations usually to, but you aren't in no rush, right?" He then added as he left that scan running, attempting to get the frequency of her last teleport.
While that was being processed, he then heard Selena's comment about wanting to find Icarus.
"Icarus?...I thought he was in LA? Didn't you just come from there?..." Violet then asked, clearly confused by why he had to track him down.
"Let me guess, flew off on you? Yeah, he tends to do that a little. Still, he can't have gotten far if he left after the battle. Hard part might be getting the system to read him. We don't really have anything like a credit card or something we can access. It's rather strange, as if he just showed up like Vanessa here did..." He then said before switching his remote access to the other side of the room in order to bring up G-corp's main Database and run a search.
"Now don't worry, I'll do everything in my power to take care of both of these requests. While we're waiting, shall I order a meal for either of you?"

James/Akari | Edge

Time: Afternoon

"You know I can tell when you're bluffing."

"I doubt it. I'm wearing a mask. A very good mask, in fact."

"Even so. Your eye twitched. You're not holding anything."

"Is that a fact? Then lay down and let's see."

Edge smiled. He had this one in the bag, no trouble. "Three aces."

The other guard, a burly man named Billy, dressed in more camouflage gear and speaking with what Edge identified as a Tennessee drawl, clicked his tounge. "I was wrong 'bout you, Edge. But not so wrong." Billy laid down his cards. "Straight flush."

"Oh HEATHEN FUCKING!" Edge shouted, slamming his fist on the small table. "NO FUCKING WAY! YOU'RE PACKING!"

"Nothin' t' get exited over, fella." Billy said, holding his hands up. "Just a game, after all."

"Is much to get exited over!" Another soldier, a husky Russian man named Biertov said. "Is decided now; Billy has permission to fuck Edge's sister if he meets her, and Edge cannot complain or stab Billy with bayonet or...those things he has."

"Throwing knives." Edge said, leaning back. "And the joke's on Billy; I don't have any sisters."

"Well goddamn." Billy said. "Ref, we've gotta rectify this situation."

"Da." Biertov said, thinking. "Edge, do you have any cousins or other close family?"

"None." Edge said.

"Truly?" a second, much more lithe Russian named Nicoli asked. "You have no family at all?"

"None that I know of, at least." Edge said. "A monsoon hit my home village about twelve years ago and wiped all of it out."

Nicoli shook his head. "Is very sad. I have strong feels for you; my family was purged by communists during breaking up of soviet-"

"No one cares about your tragic story, Nicoli." Biertov said. "We must resolve this issue. Is much more importiant. Do you have close friends, Edge?"

"Just Boss." Edge said. "And I don't think he'd be interested-"

"Is close enough!" Biertov said, nodding. "Billy now has permission to fuck Edge's close friend Boss if he meets this person, and Edge cannot be angry or stab Billy with bayonet or throwing knife." Biertov nodded vigorously. "Next game decides who gets eaten last when trapped in freezing arctic with no food. Edge, is your turn to shuffle cards."

Selena | Vanessa | Violet
Location: Floor 69, G-corp, Tokyo, Japan.
Time: Late Morning

Vanessa nodded slowly. "Yes... Provided that LA stands for Los Angeles...and I'd like to get back to work as soon as I can. I'm sure my co-workers are thinking I've perished in that explosion." She said, rubbing her chin a bit as she spoke. "I don't want to have them worrying over things... or worse, come back to find myself replaced..."

She was going to decline the offer for food as well before her stomach interjected with an audible growl. The woman's cheeks slowly colored pink before she nodded. "If... it wouldn't be too much trouble, a salad wouldn't be too bad..."

"Trust me, if Kenneth Black wanted revenge, he would have done it himself. He wants this guy for some project he's got in the works. I'm only kidnapping him because Black doesn't like the people he works for, Dexter Industries," Matt said as he sped to the airport. Once there he found that his private supersonic jet was already fueled and waiting.

Time: Late Morning

Selena had sat down, she took out a Crystal ball
"It's not just me who wants him found, there's a bit of a danger to him, I just hoped you guys could do it faster." she said,
"Icarus is in a bit of danger he may be in hiding which means I need any help I can get looking for him. I really really need him found His life could be at risk." she gave the most tearful look hoping to get some sort of sympathy, she had guessed maybe Violet had more information.

Kazuya | Hargreave | Anyone else
Location: Los Angeles | LA Airport
Time: Morning

"...Kenneth...Black?..."
Before he considered anything else, Kazuya instantly grabbed the wheel of the car as it sped into the Airport before sending it crashing into one of the hangers.
Having been braced for the impact, he then began to attack Hargreave, violently kicking him out of the car before tossing him into the ground and unloading punch after punch to his skull.
"You're working for fucking Kenneth Black!? I've been after that bastard for years! There is 2 ways this is going to end, both of them involve me finding out where he is. You tell me where he is willingly and I'll double whatever he's paying. Otherwise, I'll beat it out of you. 3 seconds to make up your mind. 1...2..."
After all Kenneth had caused in the past, he wasn't exactly popular...

Selena | Vanessa | Violet
Location: Floor 69, G-corp, Tokyo, Japan.
Time: Late Morning

Violet was a little put off by the sudden change of mood with Selena, but he was now more worried about Icarus.
"He might be a bit hard-headed at times, but I didn't think he'd be in danger..." He answered, realizing that if Icarus didn't want to be found, it'd be a long time before he would.
"I'll see what I can do, but I can't make any promises..." He then said, letting his former playboy persona slip a little in the process.
Getting back to Vanessa, he then added "Well, it's a good thing you didn't, now isn't it? I'll get that sent up soon." before he flicked up another app on his tablet and began to send the meal order down to the Canteen.
"Truth be told, you were rather lucky, most explosions of that kind are fatal. Even in Failure, you've succeeded. That's one way of looking at it, perhaps?" He then said, hoping to help ease her concerns.

Selena | Vanessa | Violet
Location: Floor 69, G-corp, Tokyo, Japan.
Time: Late Morning

Vanessa paused for a moment or two before nodding along with what Violet had said. "Right, still breathing after something like that is an accomplishment all on its own, and they won't find a body... so maybe they won't be too worried..." Or maybe even more so... She thought out loud, seeming to be a little less on edge.

"I suppose I'll just have to depend on luck, though it pains me to say that..." She said with a sigh before giving Violet a thankful look and a more genuine smile. I guess he's not so bad when he's not trying to get in someone's pants... "Regardless, thank you. I've been failing a lot lately, but this is one of the first times I've heard of a failure described as a 'success' rather than a 'building block'."

Time: Afternoon

Boss had been wandering the forest for ages that dagger at his belt was his only tool when suddenly he noticed something odd a massive storm cloud had drifted over him but he could swear the cloud was not just a big indistinct mass of vapor like most clouds it had a distinct shape he swore it resembled a castle. a deer was suddenly stricken by black lightning and something fast darted down and picked it up something with black wings, and he could have swore it looked familiar.

Boss looked up at the sky in disbelief. "'Go and get some groceries', he says." Boss said aloud. "'The forest is sanctified; nothing bad will happen to you on the way to town', he says. I'm going to have to remind Rob of this when I get back to his hovel." Boss looked up at the black cloud that had the audacity to resemble a castle. "Unless you're the local County Market." Boss said. "I bet you are. I bet County Market decided, 'Hey! Y'know what would make our great service and friendly employees even better? Being in a castle made out of clouds! It's a perfect plan, no chance for failure!'" Boss shook his head and slowly flew towards the sky-castle. "I guess I've got to go see what it is. Castles don't just pop up out of nowhere, right? Especially not castles made of clouds. Right? Right. Gotta go see what it is."

Mr. President | The Advisor | Merlin |
Location: Los Angeles | LA Battle Zone
Time: Morning

Lifting off from the ground, The President gave a nod to Matt while flipping off Kazuya as the hatch closed. "Keep an eye on that wanker, I don't trust him or his G Company ... as for Matt, he should be a good contact, give him a hotdog costume mission and all." Mr. President said while placing the card in his purple Saint brand wallet. Turning around he saw the people lined up in the helicopter, the Nuns were talking and giggling in the back, suddenly turning silent when the President turned to them. Waving them off they bowed and started to talk again.

"So how is the progress." President said turning to his rising Advisor. "All forces have exited the LA city, meeting up at the appropriate RV points to leave back to their appropriate bases." The Advisor had finally spoken, all eyes on him when he did. "Good work, now what about the Wizard? That is your area." The President said and pointed to Merlin, who was surrounded by the talking an giggling Nuns, they seemed to get along with him, Merlin smiling as well.

"I would like if he was under my eyes and authorized total freedom." He said to the President boldly, a more harsher look came from the President, but shrugged. "I have no problem ... just make sure he doesn't fuck with me or the country." The President said before sitting down, sighing. "Too ... fucking ... busy. What is next?" The cockney leader said with a tired voice. "We are meeting at one military base to catch Air Force One back to the House, then we have a meeting with Canada ... they interest me, especially with how the ... 'internet', treats them." The Advisor said while flipping through a large diary like book.

"Fuck me."

The helicopter along with the other swarm of US purple helicopters, flew across the sky. Going back to many US bases. Merlin would soon be able to gain the knowledge he wishes. Yet higher above, dark clouds roamed, but not for the reason humanity would expect.

...

A certain Archangel was enjoying himself.

as he flew up into the black castle he could see a somewhat imprecise attempt at Gothic architecture even crude gargoyles. the clouds had been solidified by some sort of magic but their was a fair bit of give if pushed and felt like warm cotton.
He could hear the sound of something happening someone was eating form the sound of it probably that strange entity that had somehow killed a deer, as he walked closer he saw the culprit he was surprised to see a young teenage boy, with violet eyes, he was wearing a black tunic with a blue undershirt, and had a black cloak, he had a pair of Black angelic wings. his raven hair was a bit of a mess, and his hands were bloody he had a huge platter of cooked venison and a roaring fire.
"W-what th-the hell, h-how did you you get up here" he stammered out as if words were hard to from his eyes were bloodshot and his face was fairly red it didn't take long to realize this kid was drunk. The kid stood up his legs were shaking, he clumsily walked forward
"Now who the hell are you? and what-what are you doing in my castle" he looked at him from the watery look in his eyes it seemed like he may have been crying a while ago.

"Better question;" Boss asked. "What are you doing in my friend's forest? In a castle made out of clouds. A physicist is crying somewhere because of you."

The young...angel? Maybe? stumbled drunkenly towards Boss. He was actually a little taller than Boss was, and that was without his wings propping his height up a bit. Boss could smell liquor on his breath; rice wine, and good stuff if his nose was working right today. "You..." he said, poking Boss in the chest. "You're not...you're not funny. You're just...stupid."

Boss blew a raspberry at the young angel, and he...laughed. He stepped back, and laughed for a bit before stumbling backwards, falling on his back and crying again in earnest. "I'm a failure! FAILURE!" he shouted. "I SUCK! EVERYTHING I do is WRONG!"

Boss was...taken aback...again. He had a feeling this was going to be an odd day. Night. Afernoon. Something. Shaking his head and sitting down next to the boy, he asked. "Do y' wanna talk about it?"

Boss | Icarus
Location: A Long Forgotten forest
Time: Afternoon

Icarus sat down weeping into his hands
'Well where do I start My dad's dead, my mother was dying trying to contain the monster, a horrible creature that devours the flesh of humans and creatures and gets stronger some monster of a man, I managed to kill the creare but surpise surpise lil-icky had some suppressed memories turns out I almost killed my sister when I was 6, thats how I got these" He jerked his thumb to point out his wings.
"You had obtained wings by trying to-"
"NO I was born with these, hey were white, I'm an angel, and that not f#cking narcissism I'm a goddamn angel, my dad was part angel when he and my mom had me, and you know I had white wings but I F&cked it up." he shouted the last bit raising his arms Boss could tell this kid was more or less a wreck. something had messed him up hard.
"I learned that after killing Darkside, that's that monster I mentioned early-poh god" he suddenly ran to what was some sort of small hole in the wall possibly for dumping garbage, Boss hear heavy retching.
Icarus shuddered then lurched as he likely threw up.

Boss stroked his short beard. "That...that's a hell of a thing." Boss helped the young angel shuffle over to where his food was, shaking his head. Boss had never even had a family, not really. "I can't even imagine..."

"It's the worst." Icarus said, still sobbing. "I'm the WORST! NOTHING I do is right. NOTHING I do has EVER helped anyone! The world would be better off if I was just...just dead!"

"I doubt that." Boss said. "You killed Darkside, right? Hell, I couldn't even do that, and I've been know to throw skyscrapers at people on occasion. That's...that's something good."

"I shouldn't have killed him." Icarus said. "I should...I should have captured him and sent him back in time or to another dimension or anything other than killing him. I'm no better than he was, now..."

"Bullshit." Boss said. "I met that thing. It was like some kind of microbe. It didn't have any concern beyond it's own well being. It didn't even see anything other than itself as people; just...objects. That you have any sympathy for such a wretched thing shows how far removed you are from it."

"But I shouldn't have killed it." Icarus said. "I shouldn't have-"

"No." Boss said. "Listen, you can't...you can't let yourself obsess over the past. Even if it feels like you're the only person in the history of all mankind who's ever made a mistake, you're not. This probably won't even be the last time you make a mistake. But don't let yourself get lost in wishing, 'Oh, I wish I would have done this instead, I wish I would have turned right instead of turning left, I wish I would have swung a quarter of a second sooner.' That gets you nowhere. You can't take the world as you wish it was; take it as it is." Boss nodded. "If you want to make your life better, make it better now. Not way back when, not in the future, now.. What can you do now that will make your life better?"

Icarus looked at Boss confused. "I...don't know..."

Boss looked around for a moment, found Icarus's hip flask, and downed the rest of it. "Goddamn, that's good sake." Boss said. "And now your life is a little better, because you can't get any more drunk. Start easy."
