Why the fuck are you so insistent besides the desire to aggravate the GM?

Because I honestly do think I can pull it off. I've never RPed a crossdresser before, but there is so much I can do with a character that's all about introspection and feeling out karma and stuff.

But I see that the topic is wearing thin, so I'll back off. Would have been cool though.


She gives you a strange look.
Point to self " Look at this face," I pose and smile as I say this "is the word "widow" the first thing that comes to mind when you see it?"


She chuckles. "I have a cell so if you'll excuse me..."

She sneaks off into the other room.

So far so good. Hope Daddy dearest doesn't start popping caps left and right.

Anyway, might as well finish my morning routine. Take a bath, brush my teeth and dress up.

There's a loud sound as a jet approaches and lands and VTOL lands near you.

It opens and a fat black woman sets out.

"Impressive display you had there..."

She looks to Galatea and then looks at the sorry state of her clothes and tusts slightly.

Galatea blushes.

I look puzzled and fold my arms arrogantly "Who is this Woman and why does she interupt our foreplay?"

I smile sheepishly, "heh heh, well I wasn't lying when I said I'm named Arrluk and I work in Vegas but I guess I should tell you the rest of the story."

I take a breath and gather my thoughts. "I'm what people back where I come from an Avatar, a master of four types of elemental Keneticism that all other folk can do only one of. Fire. Water. Earth. and Air." I do my damndest to show her each of the elements as I say their name. "As for me? Well I was supposed to be the next Avatar but due to circumstances beyond my control and which I can't remember for the love of me, I was ripped from my home and the next thing I new I was waking up in a back alley in Vegas. Luckily there are a surprising amounts of jobs one can find here where folks don't ask too many questions about your background. NO not like that! Get your head out of the gutter! So with my powers all but reset and me having no damn clue how to get home. I've just let things go and have been living in anonymity for the past two years."

Then I grin, "Which leads to last night and me meeting you. So maybe my luck is changing."

"So you're some kind of element controlling religious figure?"

The music! It is calling to me! Neurons firing! Ideas gestating.

You hear a bang and are sent out of your state. A chunk of the pavement is missing.

"It's too goddamned early for this shit, homes. Took me three days to put out that goddamned flamethrower you put in last time you tried to pimp my ride. Back the fuck off."

Galatea steps out and her eyes narrow. "What the hell is going on here?"

You're done about the time she's finished the call. "So, whats your story?"

"I'm Amanda Waller, Head of Project Cadmus. I'm the one who ordered Galatea to put on this little show to showcase your abilities. I have to say. I am impressed."

Psyckosama wrote:"Where do you put it all?"

Nom Nom, I shrug "My body digests really fast. I also require way more calories per day then the human 2000. I need more like...20,000. fortunately I have my ways." Nom

"Wait, you were raised here? Then why hasn't anyone heard of you?"

I snerk "What? Like I want to be known? Unlike most super powered individuals, I keep a low profile. Easy to do when you don't advertise and do things covertly."

She scowls slightly and you get a bit of a smirk when she hears Kryptonians can kick your ass.

I smirk back "Fan of Superman are we? Let me point some things out to you then. The kryptonians my people fought once upon a time...make supes look like a wimp. They never held back, and unlike superman, had no qualms about destroying entire planets in the process of fighting if it meant beating us, which is often what it took. Planets made lifeless all due to just the overwhelming amount of power involved, punches that crushed mountains, kicks that could split oceans, beams of energy that boiled continents. The best of the Sayians fought the best of the Kryptonians, and there's only three reasons why the Kryptonians won."

I hold a finger per point.

"One, they were better organized. Two, they fought defensively and knew their territory far better then we did. And lastly, they powered up by using blue sun energy and usually had a few that actually took a blue sun bath in another system in order to overpower the Sayians when it was needed. More often then not, we were more powerful, but with the whole 'powered by the sun' thing, it gave kryptonians more or less unlimited energy, where we had a limit."

I nomed a little bit "The sayians that fought the kryptonians are as far above me in power and skill as superman is above a normal human being. So what if the Kryptonians kicked our asses...we loved that. When we face someone stronger then us, it just makes us want to fight them more. It's a challenge to overcome. Most people feel pleasure when they get the reward, we get pleasure from the anticipation of one. The reward was victory, and the chance that we could lose or win just made it more awesome. It's no fun if you win all the time."

I waved my hand a bit "Off track now though."

"I'll need to know more about this Freiza. So why are you on this planet, what kind of powers do you have, how dangerous is this Freiza guy, and who the hell is Galactus...?"

After you finish the QA, she says she needs to make a call.

I raise an eyebrow "....Now I'm curious why you need all this info. If you were just wanting to know what you got involved with, what I gave would suffice for anyone normally."

Regardless of her reply I answer "I'll answer a few of those. Galactus is a wandering super being that was around for a few billion years. He is a physical god in every sense of the word. what makes him so feared however is his eating habits. He's called the devourer of worlds. He goes from world to world, planet to planet, and eats the life energies of every living thing upon it to keep himself alive. Earth was targeted once, but his herald found a bigger, and more full planet to go munch on."

"Frieza..." I get silent for a moment thinking about him, original and abridged version, it gives me a suitably grim face "Darksied himself would get his ass stomped to the ground by Frieza, and Frieza would be thinking it was like a walk in the park. He's the heir to an expansive galactic empire that buys and sells planets out like one does houses, and when he wants a new planet or someone hires him to do so, and some race is already living there, Frieza sends his forces to exterminate them all. Worse is when he sends in the kill teams. Elite warriors who use powers, the same ones my own race uses on such worlds. The Ginyu force is Frieza's most elite force, and they number only five, and they could take this planet apart within a few days or so."

"Thousands of worlds have tasted his wrath and tyranny, and even more live under him like rats. His forces comprise of various races, those he conqured and those he employed through threat of force or mutual benefits. Every one of them serves Frieza completely, though often against their will, as fear keeps them from rebelling and in time they become like the monster they work for. His fleets of ships can range from the size of an earth ocean destoryer, to as small as four by four foot area. All capable of traveling the galaxy in a short time and capable of beating anything the human race has made, short of super advanced technologies that pop up now and again."

Nom Nom Nom...slowly

"That's just his forces. Frieza himself...never met him. Don't want to. I've seen him in action though. He's like no villain this world has. He's supremely confident and a bit arrogant and more then a bit of a snarker...but he has the power to back it up. How powerful is he?....I know for a fact that if he were to face the Sayians, and the kryptonians simultaniously?...he'd win...by himself...within minutes, and getting playful enjoyment out of every moment of it."

I simply eat now. Sedately.

Something like that.

They never held back, and unlike superman, had no qualms about destroying entire planets in the process of fighting if it meant beating us, which is often what it took.

The best of the Sayians fought the best of the Kryptonians, and there's only three reasons why the Kryptonians won."

She gives you a bullshit look. "You mean like General Zod?"

I hold a finger per point.

"One, they were better organized. Two, they fought defensively and knew their territory far better then we did. And lastly, they powered up by using blue sun energy and usually had a few that actually took a blue sun bath in another system in order to overpower the Sayians when it was needed.

OOC no they didn't.

More often then not, we were more powerful, but with the whole 'powered by the sun' thing, it gave kryptonians more or less unlimited energy, where we had a limit."

OOC no you weren't...

[quote]I nomed a little bit "The sayians that fought the kryptonians are as far above me in power and skill as superman is above a normal human being.

That much is accurate. Though the above can be attributed to ego and misinformation.

I waved my hand a bit "Off track now though."

Yeah.

I raise an eyebrow "....Now I'm curious why you need all this info. If you were just wanting to know what you got involved with, what I gave would suffice for anyone normally."

She scowls. "You have any records to back this up?"

"Frieza..." I get silent for a moment thinking about him, original and abridged version, it gives me a suitably grim face "Darksied himself would get his ass stomped to the ground by Frieza, and Frieza would be thinking it was like a walk in the park.

Frieza: Oh you dirty bitch, work the shaft!

Seriously dude. NO!

OOC Hundreds actually. Seriously dude, this isn't DBZ where he has no serious resistance. There are other empires and the freckin' green lanterns.

Nom Nom Nom...slowly

"That's just his forces. Frieza himself...never met him. Don't want to. I've seen him in action though. He's like no villain this world has.

"So I take it you were raised in this guy's empire," she replied with a scowl. She seems to think you're exaggerating. A lot.

I simply eat now. Sedately.

"I need to make a call."

Don't think you, who are without any of your own strength can act like you are my better....... now, you wanted something?"

Toned it down to match the DCAU level of power.

I wouldn't have if this was the comics but in the animated universe everything is lowered to a more 'sane' level.

Yeah..which only works if I...Oh...KNOW about this? I can only assume stuff here based on what I know. In game I wouldn't know how powerful he actually is. Deal with it.

You'd have heard about his feats.

You know what? retcon it. I don't say anything beyond what I know since I don't know what to write. You fucking fill in the blanks. Complete Retcon since I evidently...know...and yet don't...

Fine. I'll do that. Here's what you said.

I smirk back "Fan of Superman are we? The kryptonians my people fought once upon a time. They never held back, and unlike superman, had no qualms about doing whatever it took to beat us. Entire planets made lifeless, mountains were crushed, continents split, and oceans boiled. The best of the Sayians fought the best of the Kryptonians, and it was fucking incredible."

"You want to know why they won? It wasn't just because they were stronger. We're plenty strong and have some tricks of our own. They were more organized and exploited our weaknesses. We like to fight and tend to care more about the battle than that war. We could win ten victories for every loss and they came out ahead. And you know what, that just egged us on. When we face someone stronger then us, it just makes us want to fight them more. It's a challenge to overcome. Most people feel pleasure when they get the reward, we get pleasure from the anticipation of one. The reward was victory, and the chance that we could lose or win just made it more awesome. It's no fun if you win all the time."

"So what if the Kryptonians kicked our asses...we loved it."


Galatea leans over the table and smirks. Your recognize that smirk. "So you're telling me you're a race of super powered combat masochists who are always looking for the next good asskicking?"

As for the other part...

"Frieza..." I get silent for a moment thinking about him, original, abridged, and the local version. While the local doesn't have the pure power of the others, he makes up for it in pure rat bastard.

It gives me a suitably grim face "Darksied himself would have a hard time against Frieza. That's not a fight I'd want to bet on because no matter who wins, the rest of us still lose. He's the heir to an expansive galactic empire that buys and sells planets like most people do houses. When he wants a new planet or someone hires him to find one, and if someone is already living there, Frieza simply sends his forces to either exterminate or enslave them. Some times he might send an army if it suits him, but normally he just sends a kill team. Elite warriors who have enough power to crush anyone willing to resist his tyrannical rule."

"Hundreds of worlds have been ground under his heel and billions live under him like rats. His forces are comprised of the survivors of the various races he's enslaved. Those who are too weak to prove of much value as warriors get the crap jobs. Those strong enough to be useful, like my own race, get to enslave others in his name. Every one who serves Frieza does it without hesitation, because if you hesitate, he kills you. The fear of death keeps them in line and eventually you turn into the same sort of monster he is.

I simply eat now. Sedately.


She goes silent for a moment. "Damn. That's fucked up." she pauses thoughtfully, "So how did he manage to enslave your race? Wouldn't you have fought him to the death or something?"

I nod, finished eating "I gotta get ready for work anyways. We can discuss stuff later, or not at all if you don't feel like sticking around. Not like the paper means anything to us unless we want it to." and I walk to my room to get the armor.

There isn't a chance in hell I'm sticking around here now, I got things I'd rather do.

Her eyes harden. "Call in sick. I need to talk to you after this call's finished so don't you go running off."

Galatea looks at you grimly. "I have a duty and just because she's not able to throw fireballs doesn't mean she's weak. You do not want to force a choice. Believe me."

I then look at Waller "My People have rampaged the Galaxy for years untold. We have fought Kryptonians, Tamarians, Green Lanterns. All on equal footing until driven off for one reason or another. Don't think you, who are without any of your own strength can act like you are my better....... now, you wanted something?"

"And that's exactly my concern," she replies. "I know all about Kryptonians, Tamarians, and Green Lanterns... What I want is to protect this planet. And I'm willing to go to many means to do so."

She slowly starts to walk around you looking at you through a careful eye. "You say you found 'religion' here. You willing to protect this world? Everyone has a price, Leik. What's yours?"

"... sorry," I say after pausing. "Thank you, that could have devolved quickly. That ... you know what, I'm not even going to bother counting. We're still on for grill night on Sunday, right?"

It's faintly embarrassing, but at least the flamethrower got converted into a fairly awesome grill, so I can't really see why he's complaining. Well, alright, it could have been that it was linked to the driving system and set to fire when the mechanisms determined the car was in a traffic jam.

Galatea steps out and her eyes narrow. "What the hell is going on here?"

Sheepishly, I scratch the back of my head. "Remember breakfast? It's a bit like that. I get the urge to tinker on occasion, and it takes a bit to snap me out of it sometimes."

I grin.

"Ah, but where are my manners. Galatea, this is my neighbor Jose. Jose, this is Galatea, my wife."

"Oh really?" Now a bit intrigued. "Now I'm rather curious. So, Miss Galatea, may I ask where you're from? Or is that not your place to tell either?"

"Oh..." she nods as if it makes perfect sense.

"Huh...not the reaction I was going for there." I mutter to myself.

"I will grant you that like any macho race, we don't like to lose, but it doesn't bother us too much since the potential benefits are just as great as the victory."

She goes silent for a moment. "Damn. That's fucked up." she pauses thoughtfully, "So how did he manage to enslave your race? Wouldn't you have fought him to the death or something?"

I nod "Normally, but even we have limits on what we are willing to lose. Losing literally the entire current and next generation of children was it. We however eventually did rebel because it was pointless to stay under that threat if he'd do it anyways. He personally blew up our world, and nearly eradicated our race for it. We're free now, but at a cost."

Her eyes harden. "Call in sick. I need to talk to you after this call's finished so don't you go running off."

I give her a contemplative look for a few moments before sniffing "Fine...make your call."

I merely get up and go into the living room, or what served as one. Yeah I'm naked and still giving a show, I don't care. She's obviously seen it all.

While she's doing that...I'm going to use my own martial arts training, and try to see what Sayian knowledge I have. Find my center, and focus my calm. This is basically the Real life way of focusing Ki, might as well try and see where I am. See if I have a working knowledge of my powers while I'm at it. If I'm involved with the DCAU and Marvel Verses...then I'm gonna need to know how I can do what I do quick, and start power training like hell. I already know what real life and DBZ training works. It wouldn't be hard to adapt.

Sayians it seem just can call on Ki virtually by instinct. It comes to them easily.

You can fly, you know how to basically do that "blink teleport" like fast movement technique, you can throw energy blasts of various sizes, and you know the Power Ball technique... though controlling your ape form is very difficult for you and tends to be less "control" and more "direct your rampage".

Not that she can see it, but I sorta am too. Also getting aroused, fortunately I was in another room at the time.

So the standard stuff...at least I know that much.

Not that I plan on using the ape form soon. I have neglected to tell her my powers and abilities, aside from Zenkai, so while she knows the Sayians are powerful, she doesn't know how powerful, nor what our abilities involve.

I guess martial arts wise..I'm stuck with my Tang So Do.

I take the Scouter I had been holding onto more or less the whole time and place it on and activate it. See power levels and such. Start with a reading on Galatea and myself.

Right. And for the record, your ape form is Godzilla-esque

I guess martial arts wise..I'm stuck with my Tang So Do.

Yep.

I take the Scouter I had been holding onto more or less the whole time and place it on and activate it. See power levels and such. Start with a reading on Galatea and myself.

It doesn't give clear numbers. Rather it has 5 tiers of power. 1 being the highest, 5 the lowest. If it reads something too high to get a reading on it gives a 0 reading.

(Yes. This is me trying to get away from fixed power levels.)

You're normally mid tier-3, She's low tier-3 at the moment but considering she's at rest, its not a clear reading. You'd need to scan her during a fight to see her true potential. Though even then the system doesn't really account for skill, and can sometimes have issues getting a good reading on magical and technological power sources. Still, better than nothing...

And to get a Tier-3 read while doing nothing means she's got a lot more spunk than most of the locals.

She smirks and pulls out a card... an engraved piece of blood stained wrought iron hanging off of a blackened steel chain, each link of which was forged by a blind japanese blacksmith and quenched in the tears of weeping virgins.

It is the holy grail of all Metal. It is a life time backstage pass to Dethklok. And by that I mean every future concert ever. Even their citadel of Mordhaus is potentially open to you with just a wave of this holy tag...

"Since when have you been fucking married?"

Whereupon I head back 'home'.

"Again, I apologize. There are times when I let an idea get away with me," I say to Galatea. "Did you manage to reach your father? More importantly, should I be worried about angry men showing up on my doorstep with firearms. Or pitchforks. Either. Both?"

And her phone rings. She scowls, "Of all the..."

Then draws it and looks at the name. Her face goes pale.

And answers it...

"Yes sir...?"

She winces.

"No sir..."

"I understand sir..."

She hangs up the phone and takes a deep breath. "I apologize but the situation has changed."

Galatea looks at her. "Who was that?"

She looks over. "That was Director Fury," she replies. "It seems that your... husband was under SHIELD observation and he is not pleased with our... unexpected intervention. He's coming here personally to renegotiate the situation."

She looks at you. "I apologize for the trouble."
