WHO: Hank McCoy (bluepurrymuffin), Remus Lupin (natureinblood) and OPEN
WHERE: The Xavier Institute
WHEN: Wednesday, December 8th, around 2p
WARNINGS: possible EPIC BITTERNESS
SUMMARY: Hank stops in to tour the Institute, tries to decide if he should join.
FORMAT: Eh, I'm easy. And a little new at this.

As he approached the Xavier Institute, Hank had to stop and take it in. With one arm folded across his torso, and the other hand over his mouth, he thought about how long it had been since the X-Men left Westchester, since they had been any actual kind of school.

But as much as he enjoyed teaching during those days, he still had a nagging feeling at the back of his head that he shouldn't even be bothering. That he was wasting his time, about to make a huge mistake. He pushed past it and moved toward the front door.

After stopping to adjust his tie, he knocks on the door.

During a quite moment at the Institute, Hank might feel a polite telepathic knock at his consciousness. Should he be in the mood, directions to the school's Danger Room (yes, we have one of those, Hank, did you really think we wouldn't?), where a familiar looking red-head will be in the control room, programming some scenarios for her students.

...and if he doesn't want to do that telepathically, he got an e-mail with a school mapRachel's schedule, and an invitation to visit during her planning period in it. She figured she'd cover all the bases, just in case.
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: I find myself brimming with thoughts.bluepurrymuffin on December 8th, 2010 08:33 pm (UTC)
He thinks for a minute about seeing Rachel after he speaks with Headmaster Lupin and hopes she picks it up.
Rachel Grey: wok: meh whatevertemporaltossed on December 8th, 2010 08:43 pm (UTC)
Take your time, I'll be here for awhile.

Because while she's good at programming, but she's no Kitty Pryde and it takes her a little while. Especially when she's worried about people.

[ooc: If/when Hank comes by, Rachel's sporting the Hound marks on her face again. She wasn't when she left Earth, so it will be something new for him to see.]
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: I find myself brimming with thoughts.bluepurrymuffin on December 9th, 2010 05:15 am (UTC)
[okay i'm just gonna skip ahead for now and work something out here as i go along]

Hank knocks on the door to the Danger Room.

Let's assume Hank gets inside. He'll have some hallways to walk through, right? And off of those hallways will be classrooms, where, at 2pm on a Wednesday, students will be sitting what may well be their last class of the day. Out of one of those classrooms will come one of those students, having spent the last five minutes making it clear that he was prepared to spend the next thirty minutes wasting class time with petitioning for a hall pass. Most instructors learned early, when it came to dealing with Sirius Black.

Once out of sight of the door, he immediately stopped and whipped out a communicator and started texting away on it, slouched and scruffy and in dire need of a haircut...and smelling to a surprising degree like dog.
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: Let's consider this.bluepurrymuffin on December 8th, 2010 09:05 pm (UTC)
Hank wrinkles his nose for a moment at the smell, but is mostly unsurprised by this sight. It is, after all, Xavier's. He does, however, stop when he comes within a few feet of the young man. With an eyebrow raised and a smirk on his lips, he asks "Out of class early, then?"
if (defined or != "") { print "

It's when Hank stop moving that he starts pinging on Sirius's radar. He looks up and, as is largely inevitable when people first meet Hank, his eyes widen. This man was like a GIGANTIC CORNISH PIXIE! ...No, that's what Mr. Wagner was like. This man was like...a lion man that someone had dipped in blue! He needed a Ravenclaw to have a bonding moment with.

Sirius does, at least, do a fair job of swallowing the 'Merlin's beard!' and answer as if huge blue lion-men were not that unusual in his realm of experience.

"Hall pass, actually."
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: Um.bluepurrymuffin on December 8th, 2010 11:13 pm (UTC)
A little amused and a little annoyed at the stare, however suppressed, Hank turns to face the young man, hands resting on his hips. The skepticism is plain in his face, but the smirk is still there.

"Is that so? Must be a very important text."

Even though she had only been attending classes at the Xavier Institute for a little under a month, Lily was quickly becoming accustomed to things that would have been strange anywhere else. She was no exception to the oddities. Although one couldn't tell from the blue turtleneck she was wearing today, the ring around her neck was not, in fact, jewelry, but actually attached right into her neck.

Of course, a big blue furry man still got her attention when she passed the front door en route back to class after a brief trip to the bathroom.

It was cold out and he didn't seem threatening, so she opened the door for him.

"Hi," greeted the petite thirteen year old, looking up with curious yellow eyes.
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: Big smile!bluepurrymuffin on December 8th, 2010 11:20 pm (UTC)
Meeting her eyes with his own, he stoops to offer his hand for a shake.

"Good afternoon! I'm Dr. McCoy, the headmaster should be expecting me. Could you, perhaps, direct me to his office?"
if (defined or != "") { print "
" + "
"; } small_berserker on December 9th, 2010 12:00 am (UTC)
"A doctor of medicine or a different kind of doctor?" inquired Lily, shaking the offered hand. "My mother is a doctor."

She held the door open so that Dr. McCoy could come inside. She had never seen a furry doctor before, and she was curious what kind of powers he had. Unless his power was to be blue and furry.

"Headmaster Lupin's office is just this way, Dr. McCoy."
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: What was I thinking?bluepurrymuffin on December 9th, 2010 12:23 am (UTC)
"Well, both, actually. I practice biochemistry and genetics as well as medicine," he replies as he walks through the door. As he followed her down the hall, he thought to ask "I don't believe I caught you name, miss?"

Tim Hunter: » hmm.wrongmagician on December 9th, 2010 01:38 am (UTC)
A skinny, bespectacled teenager slouched out of the library with several books tucked under one arm. He blinked once at Dr. McCoy, his sharp blue gaze inquisitive but unperturbed. It was true that he'd seen many strange things, but it's all about context, and the context being 'the school I attend with superpowered students', a blue furry feline-ish entity was both noteworthy yet not particularly strange.

"Hello," Tim said, shifting his books to his other arm. (They were, for the record, on the French revolution, a topic of which he was not particularly enamored.) "Are you a new teacher?"
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: Oh.bluepurrymuffin on December 9th, 2010 01:55 am (UTC)
Hank was caught off guard by the question, one he was still working on finding an answer to himself. But he didn't want to be rude, so he clasped his hands in front of his stomach and turned his attention to the young man.

Wistfully, he answered, "Well, that remains to be seen. I'm Dr. McCoy."
Tim Hunter: » self-sufficientwrongmagician on December 9th, 2010 02:01 am (UTC)
"I'm Tim," he said simply, pushing up his glasses. "I guess I did see you on the network." And apparently this somehow slipped Tim's mind, however that works. But the life of a teenager is complex and difficult to comprehend. "Did you need directions anywhere?"
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: Hmm?bluepurrymuffin on December 9th, 2010 02:13 am (UTC)
"Not particularly," he answered, glancing at the shelves. "I'm really just looking around today. I was a student at Xavier's once, myself. Well, the one on my world."

ɑɳɠeɭiɕɑ ʝoɲɛʂ ✮ fiɾɛʂʈɑɾ: warm and toastymicrowavemutant on December 9th, 2010 01:45 am (UTC)
Since Dr. Mid-Nite's departure, Angelica had been seeing a new doctor at a different hospital, one who preferred a more aggressive course of treatment for her breast cancer. This meant more drugs, more frequent doctor's visits, and more trips to the bathroom to puke her guts out.

Eating and sleeping were difficult lately, but she finally felt like she could maybe keep down some crackers. So she slinked down from her dorm room and into the kitchen, helping herself to crackers and tea as she hopped up onto the counter to eat.
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: Oh hello!bluepurrymuffin on December 9th, 2010 05:22 am (UTC)
Poking his head into the room, Hank exclaims, "So this is the kitchen!"

Noticing her on the counter, his eyes brighten. "Ah, Angelica, I'm glad I caught you! I was...well, I came in here to appraise the oven, to be perfectly honest."
ɑɳɠeɭiɕɑ ʝoɲɛʂ ✮ fiɾɛʂʈɑɾ: burning brightmicrowavemutant on December 9th, 2010 11:56 am (UTC)
"Doctor McCoy! It's so good to see you!" Angelica set her tea aside, smiling cheerfully as she hopped off the counter. He sure was a welcome sight, it was always wonderful to see a friendly face in the City, especially in the Institute. "And you found the Institute alright, from the looks of it."
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: I must take this data down immediately.bluepurrymuffin on December 9th, 2010 04:36 pm (UTC)
"That I did! One moment," he says as crosses to the oven and opens its door. He kneels down and gives it a quick peek inside, then glances back at her and asks "And how have you been today?"

He manages to divide his attention between examining the oven and speaking to her rather well, or at least he thinks so.

Remus J. Lupin: Welcome Ghosts.natureinblood on December 14th, 2010 03:41 am (UTC)
Remus hated sitting in his office and most days he could be found walking the hallways. Headmaster duties for this school seemed about as stressful as his teaching duties had been at Hogwarts. Whether that said something about the school or himself, he couldn't be sure.

Either way, it meant he just happened to be just outside of the office when Hank arrived after his run-in with Sirius. Despite being a wizard and living in this world for two years, some mutants still stand out a bit like sore thumbs. His face didn't show any real surprise and he offered a bit of a smile.

"Looking for someone?" he asked.
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: Hmm?bluepurrymuffin on December 14th, 2010 03:58 am (UTC)
Hank had been lost in thought as he walked down the hall, when suddenly someone spoke to him. Snapping out of the daze, he pulled a large blue hand out of his pocket and offered it to the man.

"Ah, yes. My name is Henry McCoy, I'm here to see Mr. Lupin."
Remus J. Lupin: Lonely is the Word.natureinblood on December 16th, 2010 08:36 pm (UTC)
Remus smiled, taking the offered hand firmly to shake, his smile a bit less polite and more meaningful.

"Then you've found him, Doctor."
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: Oh hello!bluepurrymuffin on December 16th, 2010 08:49 pm (UTC)
"A pleasure to finally meet you after hearing so much secondhand!"
After disengaging the handshake, Hank clasped his hands in front of his belly, which he felt gave lent his posture a good medium between being casual and a little more serious. In truth, he was a little nervous.
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: Might I just add...bluepurrymuffin on December 22nd, 2010 05:25 am (UTC)
[You think we might plot out and handwave what happened in this conversation? It's...kind of important to what's going on with Hank, but this log's kind of died off and I just want my bases covered.]
