Rating: PG.

Xavier Mansion - Recreation Room

What was once the Parlor has been turned into a Recreation Room for the students. A nice plush carpet meets the light blue walls giving it a homey feel. A pool table at one end, a foos ball table at the other, and entertainment center with video game systems, movies, and of course, cable TV. Big comfy chairs and couches surround a coffee table for comfortable loafing. Long glass windows with a pair of French doors line one side of the room bringing in plenty of light during the day. The main rule in here is to clean up after yourself.

It is late in the afternoon, after even when the supplementary optional classes that Robin has opted to take over the summer holidays have concluded. She lives here, anyways, may as well pad the future resume. Right now, though, she is at the pool table with Blank. Robin, however, has no cue in her hands. In fact, her hands are in the air in her standard puppet control position. Both an exercise in power control and a way to have a bit of fun, Robin takes shots, trying to sink the balls in order. Blank, however, isn't very good.

Walking into the rec room with his arm in cast and sling and his other arm is covered in cuts from healing road rash, is Robyn. Most his other injuries are still healing as well but not visible. He has a cookie in his good hand as he nibbles on it. "Hey Robyn…you and Blank playing a game of pool?" He asks as he sits down with a sigh of relief as it's just less painful to be sitting.

"Yeah… Well, no, Blank's playing, I'm not," responds Robin, her hands lowering as she speaks so that she doesn't get her zombie look while talking to her friend. She looks over Robyn for a few moments and smiles weakly, "I'd give you a hug, but I'm a bit worried about attempting it! I hope you're feeling a bit better…"

With a smile Robyn nods. "Thanks. I mean I've gotten a few hugs, nothing that broke more." He says as he rubs his hand over the back of his head. "So how's Blank doing at pool? He winning?" He asks as he stands up and walks over to the pool table and chuckles. "You know, I don't think I've ever played pool before."

Robin looks at the pool table and says, "Blank's awful at it. I mean, I think she'd be better, since she has depth perception and everything, but nope. But I guess I'm not much better, so I shouldn't talk…" She scratches the side of her neck lightly and then looks towards Robyn, "We should play sometime. I mean, I'm horrible, but that's when it's the most fun!"

"Once my arm is healed, sure. Unless you want the sure fire win against a guy with only one usable arm." Robyn says as he leans against the wall. "So are you graduating this year Robin or you sticking around? It's gonna be weird without some of the kids here next year." He says as he's gonna miss Rashmi.

Robin shakes her head and says, "Well, I'm a year behind, so I'll be staying here for a longer yet." There is a thoughtful pause, and she adds, "How about you? Aren't you a bit older than me? You should be nearing graduation soon, yourself. And no, as much gloating material it would give me, let's play another time." Her mouth opens a bit into a grin as she says the last part.

"I'm seventeen, it's my senior year here." Robyn says as it's weird, thinking that it's his last year at the school. "Alright, you'll have to grab me when I'm better then. And yeah, so this coming year is my last year, I just always thought Jordan and I would be graduating together but I guess not. It's just gonna be weird..him not being here."

"I know what you mean… I think Skyler is going to be going to some other school, I dunno. It's going to be weird," says Robin, frowning in consideration at that. She pushes her glasses up her nose slightly and shrugs, "I'm kind of glad you'll still be here next year, though. It's nice having at least one good friend around this place."

"Oh, where is he going to school?" Robyn asks as he didn't realize the doppelganger was graduated. "Yeah, I don't really know where Jordan ran off to, just that he was leaving for..somewhere. He wouldn't give me details." He sighs and then shakes his head, not wanting to linger on that thought. "Yeah, I'm glad Jinx, James and Connor are still gonna be around though Connor isn't Connor right now which sucks."

"Connor isn't… what?" says Robin, clearly a bit confused about that statement. It's a testament to how strange this place must be that she first guesses, "Is he possessed or something? I don't really know him well, either way…" She then shakes her head and says, a tinge of disappointment in her voice, "Sky is going to this place called Barnes, I guess. I dunno. I think he was just starting to feel a little out of place here…"

Robyn bites his lower lip and nods. "Yeah, it's weird. He's him, but a future version of him? But I dunno, I miss my friend. Even though he's the same Connor, he's not my friend." He says going back to a chair and sitting down. "That's too bad, Skyler was a nice guy from what I knew. But I think that's why Jordan left, he felt weird here and that this place just breed us as targets or something. That it was poison but…for some of us, I dunno, I like it here."

"Well, he's not dead! No need to talk about him in past tense!" says Robin, though it's in a teasing tone. She smiles and says, "I'm sure I'll see him plenty, it's just going to be strange not having him around all the time." She scratches her head lightly and says, "I dunno, I don't think this place breeds targets. I mean, weird, terrible stuff has happened to me since coming here, but not quite as much terrible stuff as before. I like it here, too. Having friends around."

"Exactly, on everything from the weird not having him around to the terrible stuff to the having friends around." Robyn says with a grin. "I dunno, I think that's what I really like about here, the friends I've made. And it's people I never thought I'd be friends with." He says as he shakes his head. "At least I'm not a frog and you're not Cinderella anymore, so how's your sister doing?"

Nodding, Robin says, "Yeah, that's for sure! That was really weird… Megan is doing alright, last I talked to her on the phone. I think it's good for her that she's staying with the Fantastic Four. Not just 'cause they can help her with controlling her, um, particular abilities, but 'cause she's pretty smart." Blank nods again emphatically after that statement, before Robin continues, "I guess she's not talking to my parents at the moment, which they probably blame on me. Since I'm such a badass." She grins.

"You are badass Robin. It's gotta be something about the name." Robyn says joking around as he walks over and gives her a side hug. "Well I'm glad your here and glad I met you. I think you're a cool person Robin. Oh! On another note, I'm finally getting to know my brother, it's cool and weird and I dunno, I like it."

"It totally is the name. We should have our own squad, though I don't think Professor Summers would get behind a two person squad entitled 'Badass Robyns'," says Robin, giving her friend a gentle hug in return, so not to press against the injuries. "Ohh, that does sound cool about your brother, though. What's he like?"

"He's…he's a Jock. But he's on the Excelsiors here I believe. He's got like super strength ala superman and he thought he was an Alien at first." Robyn says with a chuckle. "So I guess he's got a bit of a werido streak like I do. I'm still getting to know what he's like, we were separated at birth."

"That must be super weird, finding out about a family member like that," says Robin contemplatively before she smiles, "It's probably nice for him to know he's not an alien, though. I mean, I think I'd find that a huge relief!"

"I dunno, it's either that or finding out your a mutant so I guess it's kind of a double edged sword, not that being a mutant is a horrible thing but I dunno, some people might get pretty freaked out finidng out they have super powers.

"I dunno, it's either that or finding out your a mutant so I guess it's kind of a double edged sword, not that being a mutant is a horrible thing but I dunno, some people might get pretty freaked out finding out they have super powers." Robyn says in all honesty. "It's weird cause I'm adopted so I never knew I had a twin…and shit, I have to tell my Mom about it still."

"I dunno, I think I'd be more freaked out being told I'm an alien than a mutant. Not that there's anything wrong with aliens or being an alien. I'm not, um, xenophobic or anything," says Robin, biting her bottom lip lightly for a few moments. "Anyways, I hope that he's adjusting well to life here. It's kind've a change of pace, I imagine!"

Robyn stands up and yawns, pushing his hair back with one hand. "Well I think I'm gonna head back down to the medbay and get some sleep. Getting tired again." Robyn says as he has a tenancy to sleep more now that he's recovering. Also painkillers aren't known for keeping you up. "I'll catch you soon Robin for a game a pool amongst other things. We've got a whole summer to kill."

Robin nods at Robyn and says, "Yeah, for sure, Robyn. I'll seeya later." She raises her hand in farewell, her puppet mimicing the action, and says, "Have a good rest, and try to feel a bit better!"
