WHO: James Rogers, Hank McCoy, and OPEN to Avengers Mansion residents
WHERE: Avengers Mansion
WHEN: Tuesday
SUMMARY: Hank invited James to stay at the mansion for a few days, James is lonely since Gerry left and agreed.
FORMAT: Para to start, then whatever

So many people James knew were gone. People he'd known only for a little will, people he'd worked with, and now Gerry, who had been his closest friend since he arrived here. He kept half expecting Gerry to just show up in his costume, but he knew better.

Barkdevil seemed to notice Gerry hadn't come home, and kept looking for him, and occasionally barking at James. James had no idea how to explain to Gerry's dog that he wasn't coming back any time soon.

This stay in the mansion was slightly better than his last, when he'd been covered in feathers. The change of scenery was nice, and Barkdevil enjoyed the extra space. James relaxed outside with Barkdevil, who was staring at the straps of his shield a little too intently for James' comfort.

"Don't even think about it. You have chew toys," James said, picking one up and throwing it for the dog.
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: Hmm?bluepurrymuffin on April 14th, 2011 05:09 am (UTC)
Hank thought it might be rude to invite James to the mansion and be absent the whole time, so he decided it was time to pay a visit. Classes were out for the day, after all, so he had a bit of free time.

He spotted James out in the yard with the dog, and gave them a wave as he was still a little ways off. Even in New York, it was never hard to spot him from a distance.

Barkdevil saw Hank before James did, and began to live up to his name, barking at the stranger. James sat up, looked over, and waved.

"It's okay, Barkdevil. He's okay," James told the dog. He grabbed the shield and stood up, slipping it onto his back.
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: What was I thinking?bluepurrymuffin on April 14th, 2011 06:58 am (UTC)
Hank noticed the dog with some wariness. They had a tendency to not get along with him too well. Who could imagine that occurring, him being a seven-foot-tall cat and all.

Nonetheless, he strode over the James and offered him an outstretched hand. "How are things at the mansion treating you?"
James Rogers: hah!carrytheshield on April 14th, 2011 06:46 pm (UTC)
The dog whined a bit but accepted what James said. James shook Hank's hand and smiled up at him.

"It's quieter than I expected," James admitted, "Much quieter than if my team was living here." He missed them. And Gerry leaving made him miss them even more. "Being the only teenager is strange."
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: I find myself brimming with thoughts.bluepurrymuffin on April 15th, 2011 07:15 am (UTC)
He gave the dog a weak smile, hoping some sort of mutual respect might eventually develop. "Yes, I believe the only other we have on roster is Ms. Bishop, and she stays elsewhere."
James Rogers: you're not serious are you?carrytheshield on April 15th, 2011 10:13 pm (UTC)
"Yeah. I haven't seen her, or spoken to her, since one of her teammates left," James said. He still thought it was weird that she was calling herself Hawkeye. It was just weird.

"I know there are other heroes closer to my age." Most of them were probably on their own or with a different group, though.

"How about you? How's work?"
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: So it would seem.bluepurrymuffin on April 16th, 2011 05:04 am (UTC)
"Somewhat busy the last week or so." He took off his glasses and wiped his eyes. "We've had a few of our own Ported out lately, so I've had to take up an extra class or two as we try to secure substitutes for the rest of the semester."

"Unfortunately, Powers Training isn't one you can expect a flatscan to be qualified to teach." Luckily for him though, it was the first class Hank had ever lead.
James Rogers: this is comfortablecarrytheshield on April 16th, 2011 07:00 am (UTC)
"That really sucks," James said. Then he paused. He was pretty sure he knew what the word meant in this context, but, "What's a flatscan?"

Teachers coming and going seemed like another hassle school brought. Not going was much simpler.
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: How very interesting...bluepurrymuffin on April 16th, 2011 05:47 pm (UTC)
He was always asked that. Maybe he should find a new term. "Baseline human. A native, in City terms."
James Rogers: dressed nicelycarrytheshield on April 17th, 2011 04:03 am (UTC)
"Someone without any powers," James said. That made sense, even if the word 'flatscan' itself didn't.

"I still haven't found my power, if I have one." It didn't really bother him, but he was told everyone here had a power.
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: Let me ask you...bluepurrymuffin on April 17th, 2011 06:51 pm (UTC)
"Oh?" He scratched his chin, considering this for a moment. "I thought you'd mentioned something over the Network about teleporting?"

"I can't teleport... I could make Gerry teleport to me, but he's gone now," James said, "I tried with other people, but it didn't work"
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: Might I just add...bluepurrymuffin on April 17th, 2011 09:16 pm (UTC)
"Some sort of rapport, perhaps? It sounds as though it at least has the potential to be a power, if it could be honed." Maybe through something like, I don't know, a Powers Training class...
James Rogers: You dorkcarrytheshield on April 19th, 2011 03:37 am (UTC)
"I've been just fine without a power, and Captain America didn't have one either," James was sure he didn't have a power, but he was equally certain he didn't need one either.

"How would I even go about honing it if I don't know if it's a power?"
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: (default)bluepurrymuffin on April 19th, 2011 03:51 am (UTC)
"If we began with the assumption that it is one, we can work from there. But you are right, Steve--" Wait.

There had always been something familiar about the cut of his jaw, but somehow the presence of the shield had always slipped past him. "Did you know Captain America, James?"
