Cast of Characters: Monet St. Croix, Negasonic

Monet St. Croix has posed:
Oh woe. Woe is definitely the not-best way to put things. But, while doing video games and her normal pasttime of sup', there had been something that had gone wrong. A video game in the background of the Toxic Avenger had suddenly had something -snap- in it, a wink and a booger-like finger extending before vanishing.. And leaving Ellie in her normal outfit, with bleached blonde hair..
    Ando nly able to speak in southern california valley girl.

Negasonic has posed:
    Ellie is engrossed in playing one of the retro video games in the Radical Arcade. She has been spending a lot of time down here. Mostly because the other students usually dont' try to talk to you while you are destroying their high scores. Also the whole quarter placed on a cabinet to signify next game is quiet and polite.

    So she is caught quite off guard when a tendril of energy or .. whatever that was snaps into reality and then out of reality after swiping her.

    "Like, what was that grody thing." then she blinks going very still. She carefully reaches to pull her phone out and uses the front camera to see herself on the screen. "Gag me with a spoon! This like, totally bogus!"

    Panic setting in.

Monet St. Croix has posed:
As the theme to the Toxic Avenger plays off as the machine goes to shut down, Monet enters in just as suddenly as Negasonic goes over to her little commentary and M goes to flat out stare at her for a moment. Squinting.
    "Ms. Darkholme, you do not seem the type to avail yourself to these sorts of things, but this seems in very poor taste regardless. If you're going to do something so juvenile, at the very least you could attempt to make it have some semblance of reality to it rather than this sort of drivel." Yay, possible blame route!

Negasonic has posed:
    The name doesn't really register. Ms. Darkholme. She blinks a couple of times when it clicks. "I'm not Mystique M, She is totes old and just totally UGG..." oh god help her thankfully Mystique isn't around to hear that.

    She flails her hands a bit desperately. "I like can't stop... Oh my gosh.. M ... help" she puts her phone in her pocket. "Someone has totally messed with my bitchin' threads M and look what they did to my locks"

Monet St. Croix has posed:
Never let it be said that Monet has expressiosn beyond 'dull surprise'. Here there is one of total confusion, flat out staring,a nd befuddlement that takes a few seconds to reorient itself as she flat out looks, boggled, her brain going through a reset cycle as a quick scan confirms this is, in fact, Ellie.
    She goes to jabber in rapid French which one doesn't need to understand the language to get the 'what the f***ing h*** is going on' motif to it.

Negasonic has posed:
    There is a moment where energy starts to build and then Ellie manages to let it out to scorch the floor before we get a very big explosion. "Gosh I need to totes chill out but I am totally spazzing out here M." her flailing hands still a flapping as she tries to slow her breathing and panic down.

    "We have like a major lame-o prob that isn't awesome and I am going to lose it."

Monet St. Croix has posed:
Monet St. Croix would flat out stare over at Ellie in a 'what is going on' expression for a moment as she would actually whimper as the circuit breaker in her brain could almost -visibly- be seen being reset and Ego-OS would flicker to active. "Uh.."

the continued talking of Ellie like Jubilee and Noriko finally breaks through. "... All right. Have you attempted a concussive reset?"

Negasonic has posed:
    Okay now she sounds angry despite the accent and language. "Listen you Joanie, like head trauma totally will solve the fresh blond hair job problem right?" teeth clenching.

    "As wicked as this all is, I think we have a major reality bend that is totes harshing my chill." her fists clench. "I am going to beat whoever did this until they are butt ugly."

Monet St. Croix has posed:
Monet St. Croix would just give a slow moment over to stare and take another sort of hiccup as her brain would once more go to reboot then. "... What do we have to hit, then?" She could handle this. She could handle this. Besides.. This level of Ellie was rather creepy to her! She wanted Ellie back to her normal levels of creepy.
    There would be a sigh, as M would go to look about. "And let's try and not destroy the arcade while we're at it or Rogue might have words."

Negasonic has posed:
    "Doy poindexter, if I knew that I'd like totally do it." she remarks frustration in her voice. "This grody tendril came from somewhere and changed me and now I am freaking out. It made me unradical to an extreme."

    She kicks the arcade cabinet then looks around suspiciously "Can you sense anything are we alone.. you're the noid, fix this!"

Monet St. Croix has posed:
Whatever sorts of reclaibration that M's brain is going through seems to flicker once more over to sputter then as she goes to try and think of the first thing that comes to mind.. "So if it came from this, then you can beat this?" She would offer over with a light 'I don't know' chime to her speach.

the screen flashes with 'INSERT 25c to play'

Negasonic has posed:
    There is an angry huff from the usually prickly dark sullen and brooding girl. She sounds so chipper cheerful there too.

    "Fer sher!" she digs around in her jacket pocket and steps up to the machine in question and peers at it, then pops a quarter into it. She grabs the controls "What a pain-o-rama." she mutters and focuses on the game.

Monet St. Croix has posed:
There's a -fSWOOMSH- over on the screen as Toxie appears over and flashes and goes to charge in! Even as the first 'stage' starts there's the.. Yup.. Array of Robo Spirals. Definitely has to be the usual blather.
    Monet goes to stare. "Wha" right as the screen flashes, and she goes to vanish over into it!
    There she is then in pixelated form, being tied up by some of the robo-Spirals going to race away with her in tow!

Negasonic has posed:
    "There is a pause "Gnarly." she mutters and then starts to play in earnest. Suddenly she is very concerned that M's life may depend on this.

    Sure more seriously her ability to talk normally and not be a blond bimbo, but also M's life. She starts to pursue with her character and fight her way along.

Monet St. Croix has posed:
This is totally tubular. Monet has vanished over,w tih just the occasional chibi picture of her tied up speaking gibberish with the occasional bright exclamation point! That and Mojo's pre-recorded 'AHAHAHAHAHAHAH'.
    The Toxic Crusder goes to plow his way through the various freaks and abominations through the game until she comes to a strangely familiar in a way level boss consisting of a.. Monkey wearing a disco suit with a -massively- engorged cranium.
    "You cannot defeat me, for I am the undefeatable! I am the all knowable, for me not knowing all is impossible! I am the unbeatable, because the point of me being beatable is so completely laughable as to be inconceivable! For I am Mojo-!" The rest of the line that sounds like a 'J' and whatnot is cut off by audio gibberish. Something about the boss screams 'smash in the face'.

Negasonic has posed:
    "Gag me to the max Mojo." she notes with deadly serious unnatural chipperness and accent. She does the urge, she moves her character in and starts to try to smash the boss right in is monkey face.

    "Stop hitting yourself, stop hitting yourself." button mashing "Don't have a cow Mojo."

    God someone help everyone involved.

Monet St. Croix has posed:
If there is a god, then there will be no recording devices left on in the Radical Arcade. If there is not one, then whomever is watching this will be just as horrified and traumatized by the experience as Ellie is.
    The power swing of Toxie Doxie goes to bring the beat down home as the monkey goes to flee!
    Following up the next stage is the.. Wait, sewer level. Okay, there had to be a sewer level.
    This one attended by large numbers of Spirals that were each rocking different colors. Like Mojo was cheap enough to only get one character animation and run everything through palette swaps.

Negasonic has posed:
    Honestly, Ellie is really concerned as to who or what has this 8-bit video game power. Like someone totes stuck in the 90s and not ever gotten past it. "What a lame-wad." she opines as she keeps on battling her way through the Spirals.

    "Don't spaz M, I'm going to totally rescue you and it will be like awesome."

Monet St. Croix has posed:
Some things are probably better left un-asked. Even as the SPirals, when struck over by the bucket-head they go to be smooshed down! And then come another horde of things that look like they were kitbashed out of a bad 80's action movie!

Negasonic has posed:
    The thing is getting, kind of old. It feels like they have one twist after another dragging the game out. She finally groans.

    It better not be recorded. The security cams in here better not be working well.

    She starts to tap it out, up up down down left right left b a b a start into the cabinet controls. Maybe this old 80s arcade cabinet will actually have the universal cheat code. If not she will hopefully not be slaughtered in the time it takes to tap it out.

Monet St. Croix has posed:
That's when Ellie goes to cheat in ways that only soeone that has been through the suffering that is old style video games can go through. As Mojo seems inclined to just stall eternally.. Then there's some sort of powerup chime over as Toxie on the screen goes to glow and start flashing as the Mario Invincibility music plays!
    And hten ther'es a colorful spritely array of explosions as she beats her way to the final boss! Which is (of course) Mojo.
    In the background, an 8-bit M is put over on a treadmill leading over to a buzzsaw that's perched over a large pit of acid with 8-bit shark fins circling it.
    "MOJO WELCOMES YOU.. TO DIE X-CHICKENS!" A timer starts up at the top of the screen..
    Good thing that Ellie's in god mode.

Negasonic has posed:
    There is an exclaimation when the character on the screen goes god mode "Totally tubular!" and she leans into it, quickly beating her way to the final boss.

    "Your time has come Mojo-Lame-o-Domo!" definitely not her best insult but she is working with a handicap.

    She is a bit worried that M may die if buzzsawed so she double times it in god mode to try to beat Mojo and save M

Monet St. Croix has posed:
Ther'es more beatings over, and smashings over of Mojo that involves him then going to 'flee' mode over. "You'll never catch me!" S peaking in a gibbering, giggly voice. But unfortunately tripping.. And ending up falling over on the buzzsaw.. Sent flying into the acid pit. .And then piled on by the sharks!


And then a very, veyr confused looking sprite of Monet is put over in the arms of the Toxie Doxie on the screen along with the tag 'A WINNER IS YOU'!

Negasonic has posed:
    "Great, now like make with the beef and give me back Monet!" is shouted to the cabinet.

    She somehow resists the urge to kick it until the stuffing and quarters come out of it. "Geeze what is your damage just.... stop this!" the urge to kick rising.

Monet St. Croix has posed:
There's more flashes over as the arcade cabinet resets, and there is suddenly an even /more/ confused M that is wearing a playboy bunny outfit over in Ellie's arms. Ellie's hair is back to normal and - more imporptantly, she can cuss like a real person with censor bars!

Negasonic has posed:
    Ellie staggers and manages to not drop Monet when she gets an armful of the other mutant. She blinks at her and the whole outfit. Okay to be fair she stares at Monet in a playful bunny outfit.

    This may be the first time she has blushed speechless. Just .. without words for a moment before blinking and moving to set Money on her feet "Uh... rescued.. not sure what the fuck that was all about though."

Monet St. Croix has posed:
There's a few more blinks as M takes a few moments for her brain to reset as she goes tos wear several more times in what sounds like Arabic. Then she glares daggers down over at Ellie with "Speak of this to no one ever or they will never find your body."

Hard to take seriously with those bunny ears bouncing above her head.

Negasonic has posed:
    Ellie stares at M's chest for a moment then scoffs looking up at the security camera in the corner. Flushed.

    "I'm surprised your outfit didn't revert like my hair. Also. What the hell was that Monet... did you get any sense when it sucked you in." she carefully moves around and unplugs this cabinet.

Monet St. Croix has posed:
There's some repressed swears over from Ellie even as she gets a look that may (or may not) confirm that yes, M does look as good as she claims as the hairband is flung over against the wall with the headband deforming, then floating down to the garbage.
    "Everything was bright and it was like I was drugged.."

Negasonic has posed:
    "Well.. as humoerous as it might be to leave this to zap the next kids who come in here to play games... we should report it to Jean or someone."

    She steps away from the unplugged cabinet warily. "Maybe ... Hank can figure it out."

Monet St. Croix has posed:
Monet St. Croix would glare over at it. The only reason that she was not trying to break said cabinet over to bits was the aforementioned statemetns that had been given over by Rogue previously aboutit. "Yes, let's. Before that freak does such things again."
