Xavier Mansion - Observation Deck

Glass windows surround the circular room giving a full view of the school grounds. Two telescopes sit in front of the window for students to looks at the stars. A few comfortable chairs are placed up here for students to relax. Its a quite place up here that allows the fresh air in through sky vents in the summer and is well heated in the winter.

Since Daisuke's graudated and still at the school, he's taking the morning to relax up in the observatory, listening to the rain pound against the windows. It's kind of relaxing to him. In his hands is a drawing pad and he's scribbling on the paper with a piece of charcoal, his hands turning black and smuggy. As usual, Dai has a few black smuges on his face that he hasn't noticed, when ever he gets involed in his art, the medium tends to get on him some where.

John walks into the room wearing red and black camo combats, a plain black t-shirt, silver dogtags, black sneakers and has put red streaks in his hair. He had a free period and is exploring the school, he spots Daisuke and recognises him from the other night. "Hey dude, watcha drawing?"

Daisuke looks up, puts down the pad and shrugs. "Just a picture of someone I knew. On days like this I like to draw him." He's dressed in a pair of black jeans, a black and blue stripped sweater and a sort of plaid blue and white skirt over the jeans. "How are you settling in here so far?"

John looks inpressed at Daisuke's drawing "Wow thats really good", "Its going really well, everyone is really nice, im not to sure about NYC yet" he thinks back to the fight yesterday.

Daisuke does have a talent for drawing as it's been one of his two main emotional releases for years. "Thanks." He says blushing slightly. "Cool, yeah most people here are really great, and what's wrong with New York City? I love it there, but then I grew up in Queens." He says as he used to spend a lot of time in Manhattan when he could.

John bites his lip not sure what to say "There was an incedent…" he changes the subject "How long have you been at the institute for?"

Daisuke thinks back on it. "Hrm..It was shortly after my father died which was in 2007, so about two and a half years." The way he mentions his father's death is very nonchalantly. "An incident? What kind, I know I've had my runins in the city." He says running a hand through his hair with a sigh.

"Sorry bout your dad, that must've been rough". John fiddles with the black hoop in his ear, "Well there was this guy with these big robots robbing people in Rockafeller Centre, he was going to start hurting people so me, Tim and i think his name was Wyatt tried to help, we beat the robots but he got away with the loot" he winces as he moves his sholder "and one of the robots shot me in the sholder with an energy blast while i was trying to get a flame started up again".

Daisuke shakes his head. "No, it wasn't. Everything before he die was." He shrugs as if he doesn't really feel anything on the matter. "Sorry that that had to be your first experience in New York. We do have a great medbay here if you're injured, they've patched me up many times. So everything was okay in the end? You're okay?"

"Whoa you're dad sounds unpleasent then, sorry bout that". He shakes his head "Nah im good just a bit sore is all, im kinda glad i was involved though cos i managed to retain some control of my powers"

Daisuke smiles and nods. "Learning control and the tricks you can do with your powers is definately necessary. I never really had a control issue, just have to remember that I can't raise my voice, which has caused some problems when I've gotten upset and wanted to yell." Daisuke says with a chuckle. "I think the first time I got involved in an incident, I refused to leave the school for a few weeks."

John laughs nodding "Yea my power cause problems too when i'm upset, i have a tendency to burst into flames" he scratches his head "It might be a good idea to stay at school and lay low for a few days now that you mention it"

"It's up to you, and how you handle it." Daisuke says. "I have sonics, that's part of my powers. So the louder my voice gets the more energy I produce." He says with a nod. "I had a problem with fear and getting intimidated easily and I've been getting over it. I see Dr. Parker-Mayfair once a week, but if you want to lay low and it makes you feel better, go for it."

"As long as im calm im in control, but i have issues with remaining calm" then adds "You got any classes today?"

Daisuke shakes his head. "No, I graduated, top of the class with Brian." He does't know if John's met Brian or not. "Where Brian's gone onto college classes and training with X-Force I'm still with the Student Squads cause I'm still learning a lot with my Sonics. I help tutor here and am kind of a teachers aid. Any help you need understanding stuff with classes, I can do that."

John smiles and nods "ok if i need tutoring i'll come find you dude" he looks at class schedual "I cant make this out, do i he a lesson next or another free?" holds out schedual to Daisuke

Daisuke looks a the Scheduel and follows it down. "No, it looks like in about an hour or so you have a Mutant Studies." He says nodding. "And yeah, I'm the dude to find if you need help with school work." He says as the word 'dude' just sounds strange coming out of the Japanese teen's mouth. "So have you been to America before this, or is the whole country new to you?"

John nods and makes a mental note of his upcoming class "Thanks mate i can't afford to miss a class im already in trouble for missing curfew" he takes out a small mirror, and toys with the idea of putting on eyeliner, "Whole new country mate, i've only ever gone as far as Ireland"

"I've only been to Japan…unelss you count World War 2 Geremy during some weird time travel thing." Daisuke says with a chuckle. "That scared me quite a bit at first, realizing we were in Germany in World War Two and me being Japanese…" He shakes his head. "So what's it like where you're from?"

John scratches his head "Time travel huh, guess it makes more sence than the fairytale stuff" he thinks back to London "Big, grey and loud, i miss it" starts feeling homesick.

Daisuke nods. "Well it's kind of grey here today and New York City is definately loud." Daisuke says not really knowing how they compaire. "Fairy Tale stuff isn't the weirdest, the attack from another dimension was just…that was scary."

John says "another dimension?"

Daisuke nods. "Yeah, an alternate dimension tried to take over ours, it was like our dimension but they were all evil? I dunno, it's hard to explain. I ran into the other version of me and it was…" Daisuke just shakes his head and shudders slightly. "We're in a school with a bunch of kids and a super hero team, we get a lot of excitement."

John shakes his head "That sounds freaky"

"You have no idea." Daisuke says as he doesn't want to get into details and scare the new kid. After all Daisuke has some pretty messed up stories. "You'll get plenty of practice with your powers in the danger room, oh, do you know whose squad you're on yet?"

Max enjoys visiting the observation deck every now and again. Today's no different. The telltale ding of the elevator signals Max's arrival. And walking out from the transport Max checks his surroundings. "Heya Dai! Hey John!" He calls out.

"yea i'm in the Corsairs but i haven't had a danger room session yet" He waves as his ice cold roomate walks in "hey max".

"You'll definately have one by Christmas. I'm in the Hellions, which sounds a lot more menacing that I give credit too." Daisuke says as he remembers his first one with Skyler. "My first danger room session scared the crap outta me." He smiles at Max as he walks in, a bit of charcoal smuged on the sonic users face and a half finished drawing infront of him. "Did Kael tell you him and I are flying partners?"

Max looks confused at Daisuke. "No, but that's cool. I didn't know you could fly." He offers before trying to take a peek at Daisuke's work. "I'm in the New Mutants. Doesn't sound like Hellions. But equally as cool."

John grins at the prospect of a danger room session "Will it be similar to what happen in NYC last night?" He eyes glow red as Max brings down the rooms tempreture "They'd obviously be cool with you there" he jokes.

"I don't know what happened in New York City last night, but it might be. I mean you'll feel pain in there and everything seems and looks and feels real, but it isn't. It's all a simulation." Daisuke explains as he does so much better in the Danger room than in real situations. His mind knows the Danger Room is real so he's willing to take more chances. "Yeah, I can fly, I'm still working on control and am helping Kael a bit."

"Ha ha! Ice puns." Max says before jumping into a chair. "What happened in the city?" Max asks as well, wondering what happened, his life's been real calm recently, of which he's grateful.

"Well there was this guy with these big robots robbing people in Rockafeller Centre, he was going to start hurting people so me, Tim and i think his name was Wyatt tried to help, we beat the robots but he got away with the loot" He begins applying eyeliner.

Daisuke tires to think if he's heard of Tim or Wyatt before and just shakes his head. "I wonder if there's anything in the news about it, and maybe I'll ask my boyfriend. He knows a ton about super-heroes. I mostly have learned the stuff from him and Eddie." He says with a chuckle. He hasn't heard about what happened in Salem Center last night.

Max's eyes go wide as John tells his story. "Nice!" He exclaims before leaning back on his seat again. "That's all you need sometimes, I wonder how they know so much about heroes." He asks.

John smiles at Max's reaction "Scary but i kinda enjoyed helping people" he puts the mirror away, "I diddn't know they new alot about superheroes" then asks "how does this look" refuring to the eyeliner.

Daisuke shrugs. "I think they just read anything they can find on the, newspaper, books, internet, old reports that are open to the students. There are apparently so many fan sites out there." Daisuke doesn't usually read into them but maybe Banshee and Syrin for how to use his powers. At the eyeliner comment Daisuke doesn't say much, he doesn't know what to say to it as he isn't really into the 'guys with eyeliner' look.

Max nods his head as it's explained to him. "Huh, well. Umm, I don't know?" He responds to John with, not knowing anything about make up. Never understanding why guys use it.

John decides to keep the make-up on and pulls some black nail varnish out of his pocket and begins applying it.

Daisuke isn't one to stop people from being themselves so he just watches John for the time being. "Isn't nailpolish flamable? Are you sure that's a good idea?" Daisuke asks as he doesn't have much experience in it.

"I always thought it was." Max offers to the flammable comment. "But he may not have a problem with fire. Like me with cold."

John say "oh crap is it" he scratches what he can off

Daisuke picks up his art book and starts to work on his drawing a bit more, trying to get the features more defined in the drawing he's doing obviously of a person. "I don't have any special dealings with the weather, just my metabolism." Daisuke says chuckling.

"Well, at least you caught it before you embarrassed yourself in the Danger Room." Max offers with a smile. "Okay, so who's pumped for school to end?" He says quickly, segwaying to the next subject true to form.

Daisuke looks up at Max and can't help but chuckle. "You mean end for the year or for Christmas break? I actually miss having classes. I've thought about going to college but…" He's not comfortable leaving Xavier's, it's become a home to him and a security blanket. "This is my home, I don't have anywhere else to go but here."

"Well, yeah. I guess it's different for everyone. I really like going back home on the breaks." He offers before sighing. "I hear everyone is going to my folks house this year."

"I don't have a family to go home to, sometimes I go to Japan. Maybe I'll go to Kyoto in the Spring to see all the trees and flowers in bloom." Daisuke says thinking of all the possible painting oportunities he'll have. "Well my Grandmother, she lives in Kyoto, she's my only family."

John sighs "im not going home, i cant risk it, thanks for telling me about the nail varnish, max is right fire don't hurt me but my powers act up more when im in contact with something flamable"

Max says, "Okay, gotta get ready for my Danger Room time." He says, looking pumped up for it. Max stands up and heads towards the elevator. "You guys take it easy!""

Daisuke waves at Max. "Good luck, don't let Mr. Guthrie push you guys too hard, and tell Eddie I wanna talk to him later!" Daisuke says as Max heads out. "Well I know you'll learn control here, my boyfriend's still practicing control of his powers."

"See ya later Max, go kick butt" his eyes go back to their normal blue as Max leaves and the room begins to return to its normal tempreture. He looks over at Daisuke "Im supprised my he amount of out gay guys there are here, so far i've met 11"

"11, I didn't know anyone was keeping count. I guess it's easy to be out when there's a significant number." Daisuke says not really thinking about it. "Well I think I'm more bisexual cause I had a crush on a girl before I met Jared. Then Jared and I just kind of clicked and he was my first significant other." Daisuke says running a hand through his hair. "It's weird because his brother Eddie is my best friend and his father, Dr. Parker-Mayfair is my squad leader."

"I only kept count because at home no one i knew was out, i havn't even come out at home yet, so you got a connection with that whole family, cool maybe getting on well with you is genetic i know Eddie is adopted so maybe he mimiced the liking Daisuke gene"

Daisuke blushes a bit runs his hand through his hair nervously. "Nah, I dunno, I'm nothing special, I'm just a guy." Daisuke's fairly modest as he's still struggling with self esteem issues. "Eddie's Dad's are awesome, and him and I come from similar homes so we just kind of connected and learned to lean on eachother."

John scratches his head "Similar homes? so Eddie is secretly japanese as well?, if you dont wanna go into it don't worry, its cool you guys bonded"

Daisuke laughs at that one and shakes his head. "No, no, just I am. Just we had it rough at home and both of our biological fathers are total assholes." He leaves it at that not going into too much more detail. "We're both totally oblibious when it comes to pop culture too."

"sorry about that that must've been hard" he adds "it shows your both strong though to be able to get over that and be happy" he smiles at Daisuke.

"Yeah, it was a lot to get over but I'm okay." Daisuke says with a chuckle. He stands up and streches a bit. "Well I've gotta get going for now, I think you've got class soon and I think I'm gonna try to get a work out in for a bit. Nice talking to you John."

John gets up as well "Yea you're right i have got class, enjoy your work out, it was cool talking to you" he leave the room
