Synopsis: Tabitha and Emma have a talk on telepathy.
Cast of Characters: Emma Frost, Tabitha Smith

Emma Frost has posed:
Emma Frost has requested Tabitha's presence over in the recreation room. Emma is currently keeping a small tablet to the side of her that she's occasionally typing into with one hand, moving to occasionally skim over some sort of article or make a mark on it.

Tabitha Smith has posed:
Eventually tabby had to come home after having had a twentyfirst birthday earlier in the week. Though amazingly she has not had so much as a drop to drink yet. Missions with X-Force, and in thge span of a twentyfour hour period going from helping rescue her ex-boyfriend from a giant Sentinel Cyborg Bear with machine guns. To killing a synthetic robot duplicate of him (And one of herself and other members of X-Force).

And now she's coming in from a shift at Harry's Hideaway. So at leats to the benefit of eyesight everywhere Tabby is dressed less brightly. dark blue jeans with a black leather belt with only minimal spikes on it like her choker. And a tank top in gray with Harry's Hidewaay printed on it. Even her hair is bound up sensibly in a bun with a couple pencils poking through.

"Heeeeeyy Emma. You called?" she greets and heads for one of the nearer comfy looking steats near where Emma has parked herself.

The younger blonde looking more than a little tired.

Emma Frost has posed:
Emma Frost goes to casually fold her hands together over, "Greetings, Tabitha. I've been told you've had a rather eventful last day or so. I do hope that you've not come back with your brain scrambled moreso than usual. I need it relatively intact for my own uses going forwards."

Emma goes to gesture with her hand, "Take a seat. Have you caught up in some of the latest reports on our affairs with the Thing?" She's making a point of not referring to it as the Shadow King.

Tabitha Smith has posed:
The couch is comfy so Tabitha sprawls. "My nugget probably ain't any more scrambled than normal." Tabby states and arches an eyebrow whikle looking up like she's imagining most of what she just went through. And the fact that she's had to kill effectively innocent animals and sort of robot duplicats and clones and the moral quandry that can entail.

"Soo, we've picked up Earl. We got him holed up somewhere safe enough till we can see about putting him back in his own driver seat so we can then try do the same for the Professor and everyone else the Douchecanoe starting all this has done?" she tries to recap the last parts that she might be able to remember.

Fine detail is not always Boom-Boom's specialty

Emma Frost has posed:
Emma Frost would nod over at Tabitha, "Close enough. I'm thinking given recent events and your experiences, both with Fels and the rage of the souls that your abilities are going to be useful. For those purposes I'm going to be working with you on trying to help you with better mental shieldings. In the event of a melee with It your consciuosness will be a useful deflection if things come to a crisis and direct intervention is required."

Tabitha Smith has posed:
There's a nod of Tabitha's head and a chuckle at the mental ass kicking she's about to receive. "I've been working on, well trying to work on stuff after the last training session." Rabby states.

Most people refer to their mental defenses as a mind palace. Tabby had a Mind Campervan.

"So this is gonna be the plan. I fight a psychic entity on part with the professer. And I'm just a diversion. This is like bananas stuff Emma. I'm impressed." The younger blonde grins but she's clearly as terrified by the idea as she is impressed and willing to go along with it.

Emma Frost has posed:
Emma Frost would fold her hands together, "We'll see how events deal out. For now, we don't want to engage the thing unless we have to. It's extremely dangerous. Something that can likely overwhelm even Charles in a straight up fight. At best we can delay it. We would rahter not engage it unless we have to as part of a greater scheme. But one covers their bases."

Emma would continue, "I'm going to give you some simple exercises I'm going to have you work on at your convenience. They'll be for when you're asleep so you won't have to worry on remembering to do them."

Tabitha Smith has posed:
At least Tabby and Emma are in agreement this thing is scary dangerous. "Well if anything the extra training will help with the thing X-Force is tackling. Straight up Cable knockoff." They've been in a lot of strife because of this guys.

"So when I pass out, I'll like just start working on them? Won't that get in the way with like draming and stuff cause a lot, and a lot of my nights aren't exactly restful." The booming one explains but seems open to it.

"Or pleasant or fun. Despite how I act around people I like." she adds and jokes at her own expense.

Emma Frost has posed:
Emma Frost would nod at Tabitha, "Lovely. Please do -request- that the rest of us are kept up to date on this. Threats to all of us require that even if they are handled we corresspond and update one another. but that's for another time." Emma's eyes would flash.

"With your permission, I'm going to enter your mind and make some quick changes."

Tabitha Smith has posed:
It's important enough and it probably says a lot of how much Tabby actually trusts Emma that the only thing she asks is "Should I sit up for this or lay down?" she looks down at the couch she's kicked back on.

She takes some initiative and just sits herself up and upright. Spine against the backrest. At least her last couple missions she hasn't been hurt but for now this might at least help prevent non physical injuries.

Emma Frost has posed:
Emma Frost would gesture at Tabitha, "It will be quick. So it shouldn't matter." As Tabitha gives her permission, Emma goes in and there's a falsh in her eyes. A few quick alterations made. "There. I've simply programmed your mind with some mantras to undergo while you're asleep to help work on your mental shields."

Tabitha Smith has posed:
It's fast and and Tabby barely registers the blip of Emma's presence in her mind. The willing consent meaning the White Queen doesn't have to put much effort into it.

It is still Tabby and she chuckles. "Just like that? Well I suppose if I wake up somewhere and I'm in a doggy bed or kennel or something I'll go bark at the Cuckoos before I chase you!" the girl jokes and rubs fingers at her temples.

"So how long will this stuff need to take and kick in? I imagine if it's go time tomorrow we're still up the creek."

Emma Frost has posed:
Emma Frost would shake her head, "I'd advise staying away from the Five. They can be quite.. Tempermental. And they're unique." Emma's still wary of them. No matter what their particular origins are; things that she's not worked out for herself.

Tabitha Smith has posed:
"I'm aware of some of their quirks. But I'd suggest making sure they're up to speed. This is is the sort of deal you want all the psychic muscle you can muster." Tabby suggests with some seriousness in her voice after a playful smile.

"I'm still not even really sure what I bring to the table beside just straight up energy. I kinda needed Blindfold's help in the astral to get rolling with any kind of booms. I can do battery easy enough if you need it."

Emma Frost has posed:
Emma Frost would smile, "That's enough, sometimes. We need something that can be used for directly applied brutality. Between Ms. Grey and myself we can handle skill. If Ms Braddock deigns to get involved with those of us she deems her lessers, we can handle anything that requires finesse."

Tabitha Smith has posed:
Tabby nods her head with a playful grin. "So yeah. I'm the cannon again. Aim me!" she says expectantly. "You gonna be okay though. You been drinking more than I have lately and I'm supposed to be on a birthday bender." she asks about Emma's own well being.

"I dunno if she thinks that much. She was pretty cool last time I saw her. But In was also knee deep in repressed daddy issues being brought back up." tabby states with a shrug.

"We take the help we can get sometimes. But we have options and possible like tactics and stuff so. Not gonna know till it's the night!" the tone out of Doctor McSplode is hopefull.
