Waiting for Butterflies
Date of Scene: 18 May 2020
Location: Student Gardens, Xavier's School
Synopsis: Some chatting in the garden.
Cast of Characters: Pixie, Shannon Lance, Shadowcat, Firefly (Barrows), Red




Pixie has posed:
It's early morning and perfect spring weather lights up the student gardens. Megan is here bright and early, tending to her little garden patch, which, thanks to Ororo's instruction, is already starting to bloom.l,Well some of the early shooters are showing flowers anyway.

It May yet be a while until the butterflies come but Megan seems hopeful and more cheerful than she's been in a while. Perhaps having the evil influence removed from her mind has helped in not scaring the nature away either. Heck she's even humming a soft tune as she works on feeding and watering her plants.

Too bad she still looks like a demon..

Shannon Lance has posed:
     Early to mid-morning or not, Shannon's up and about herself, rustling about the gardens. "Lemon verbena... where did miss Munroe plant the lemon verbena?" She's glancing down to her phone, then rooting about among the various herbs, trying to identify the one she's looking for. She's wearing black leggings, a long black t-shirt with a huge, sparkly pink sequin heart dead in the middle of her chest, and plain black tennis shoes for traipsing about among the plants. "Scheisse... I'll have to bug miss Munroe about it..."

     What could the winged healer in training be up to?

Shadowcat has posed:
Kitty's strolling outside and shakes her head at the gardenns, half expecting Lockheeed to chase a fly or something. Instead, he's up on her shoulder, tail around her neck as he's watching the world go by from his vantage point. Kitty jogs over and waves, "Hey guys" she calls, then uses her indoor. non 'you done goofed' voice. "How's things?" she asks and looks over the gardens. She spies Shannon and grins. "You better do your students proud in that challenge" she stage whispers over and grins. Looking over to Shannon, Kitty nods apprvingly and settles on the grass, just enjoying the day.

Firefly (Barrows) has posed:
    Josiah comes out to the garden, carrying a pot with a plastic container filled with crawfish. He then begins to set it down on the table near the gardens. He had brought some bowls and plates and makes a bowl of gumbo. "A little bit of celebration is in order megan. Word is you got rid of that evil influence. So I made my famous gumbo." He says as he offers her a spoon with the bowl with three huge crawfish on the plate. He looks to the others and remains quiet. He is dressed in his blue suit this time, no tie, but vest and suit jacket.

Pixie has posed:
Megan Gwynn continues to hum quietly, working almost meditatively on her garden, which is nice and calm and relaxing. She doesn't notice the others, it's only when Josiah speaks that she glances up and smiles,

"Yeah, it's a relief to be somewhat back to myself...Just need to get my soul dagger back and then I won't look like a..Demon.." she shrugs, it pauses at the sight and scent of tasty gumbo.

"Ooh, for me? thanks.." she smiles, taking the spoon and bowl and giggles, "Wow, this smells good, didn't know you were such a talented cook! Thanks.."

Firefly (Barrows) has posed:
    "Well I learned to cook so I can make a good husband someday." Josiah says as he turns to Kitty and Shannon. He moves to Shannon and leans in to kiss her cheek. "Need some help, love?" He asks curiously as he looks to the herbs she is rummaging through.

Shannon Lance has posed:
     Shannon's face goes flame red but she cracks a smile. "Depends on how good you are at identifying different herbs," she replies. Glancing over at Megan, she smiles, waving. "Hey... you look like you're feeling a lot better since the other night! What's that you've planted over there? I didn't know you liked gardening." Kitty gets a wry smile, and she chuckles. "As long as I don't burn down the kitchen, I'll be happy. Think lemon verbena flavor macarons would go over well with miss Grey, or is she more of a chocolate goodies type person?"

Shadowcat has posed:
Kitty looks over at Shannon then sniff, sniff, sniff. Is that food? Is that gumbo? Or....yeah, that smells good. Kitty glances over getting to her feet again and looks over the gumbo. Okay. Kitty's hungry.

Looking over to Josiah, Kitty smiles then looks over to Shannon, then Megaan.

Pixie has posed:
Megan Gwynn smirks a bit at Josiah and shrugs, "Shan's a lucky girl.." she does avert her eyes slightly when they kiss, setting the bowl down after a brief nibble and finishes up with watering the plants.

To Shannon, she smiles faintly and nods, "Yeah, Ms. Grey and Betsy seem to have evicted that evil force in my mind..But I still remember everything, dark thoughts, feelings.." she sighs a bit, "I'm...Sorry I tried to attack you.." to Kitty she smiles, "Hii Kitty, I was wondering if I could make an appointment to see you soon?"

Firefly (Barrows) has posed:
    "I dont know what Miss Grey likes. But something made from the heart will be something she will like." Josiah says as he hugs Shannon and he moves to the bowls and pot he brought out and ladles out some more gumbo and crawfish and offers the plate to kitty. "Want me to get lockheed a plate? It isnt dairy." He says with a smirk.

Red has posed:
Commotion in the garden gets Alice down to it from working on whatever project she was working on in her room. Which was kinda limited with the curfew. "What's up?" she asks to the gathered, offering them a smile and nods. "Is feeding the dragon safe at all?"

Shannon Lance has posed:
"Pffft. Water off a duck's back, Megan. That wasn't you attacking me, it was whatever was controlling you." She tilts her head and smiles a bit. "Though if you see miss Grey and miss Braddock before I do, please let them know I'd welcome them poking about in my brain box as well, just to make sure things are on the up-and-up?"

     Looking over at Josiah, Shannon smiles, ducking her head. "Actually, I asked miss Grey directly last evening, and she was pretty clear on liking macarons. But I forgot to ask her which flavor! So, maybe I'll try something new and find that lemon verbena, if it's even growing yet. Otherwise, maybe vanilla is a safe bet." However, her nose, like Kitty's, is rather keen, picking up on the spicy, savory smell of the gumbo. "Oh gawd... you were in the kitchen again, weren't you? You realize you're likely to draw a crowd with that, right?"

     To Alice, she chuckles softly, waving. "Feeding Lockheed, yes. Feeding him dairy, HELL NO."

Pixie has posed:
Megan Gwynn smiles faintly to Shannon and nods, "Thanks.." she shrugs, "Hmm, though I should still talk to Kitty..." she does arch a curious brow at her though, "Um how come, is this to do with that fairy..?" she seems concerned, "I mean she seemed harmless..."

All this talk of food has her mouth watering though, and she pauses in her gardening, rinsing her hands with the watering can before focusing on the gumbo. "Mmm this is great! Wish I could cook this well.."

Shadowcat has posed:
"I'm right here, what's up?" Kitty asks and looks to Megs and then over to the food. "I would dig in but I'm not sure if it's kosher. Is there such a thing as Jewish gumbo? Now I said that, there's probably some old lady in the French Quarter who makes it" Kitty teases. She won't take food from Pixie though, and she sits back on the grass with a wry smile, looking over them all.

Shannon Lance has posed:
Shannon nods once. "Lyra? Yeah, actually. I told Mr. Summers everything, and he pretty much said she had to get out of my head that night. A couple nights later was the incident in the rec room." She frowns a little and sighs. "I kind of liked having her around, but I've got to listen to the teachers too, ya know? And I'm real concerned about where she'll go after. Forgive me, but I don't trust Morgana, and Lyra /did/ mention needing help, but she was scared to have me speak up for her. Really hope she's okay, and she doesn't go doing anything silly till maybe... just maybe... she has a chance to make her case to someone here."

Regarding cooking, Shannon purses her lips for a few moments. "Well... maybe I could teach you a couple really basic things, see how you do and go from there?" She smiles and glances at Kitty and Alice, too. "Same goes for anyone here. I'm no teacher but hey, everyone ought to at least be able to make some real basic stuff."

Pixie has posed:
Megan Gwynn shakes her head to Kit,"In private I think, is better, but I can wait.." she smiles, taking another bite of her gumbo. "Mmm, one day I hope I can cook as well. And I'd appreciate that, Shannon!" she beams.

As for Lyra, she sighs a bit, "Right, the Goblin Prince was after the fairies all the time..And I believe Morgana May be in trouble. Just wish there was a way to warn her." she frowns at a thought.

"I wonder where Lyra is now? I...I'm not sure what to think of Morgana after the last incident..But I think she takes care of her own, including Lyra."

Shadowcat has posed:
"I can..." Kitty says with a not so serious lok in her eye. "I can make basic things. Cereal. I" she says with a nod. "Am sorted" she adds and all but dares Shannon to argue with that one...

"Seriously though, I'd like to learn to cook simple things really, so yes please. Sign me up" Kitty says and lays back in the grass, enjoying the calm and peaceful day. Propping herself up on her elbows, Kitty looks over them all. She's making mental notes, not even in guidance counselor mode/ More 'how can I support my friends' mode

Firefly (Barrows) has posed:
    Josiah moves to the pot and he begins to ladle out the bowlful for Shannon, bringing her the bowl and some crawfish. "I could look up jewish recipes?" He asks Kitty as he watches her. "So how is Lockheed? Gas shannon anymore?"

Red has posed:
"You know, in the big city there are no kitchens in the flats at times, right?" Alice notes chuckling, eying Shannon amusedly. "In either case, isn't digging in the head something that is like totally not acceptable usually?"

Shannon Lance has posed:
Shannon nods, and smiles to both. "I'll see what I can do. Something basic, simple, and then we can all dine on the results al fresco, if the weather's nice." For the most part, though, she stays quiet and sticks with her friends.

Smiling at Josiah, she accepts the bowl, and nibbles some of the gumbo. "Thanks, Josiah! This is heavenly!" She gives him a quick hug, and smiles.

Looking over to Kitty, she smiles as well. "Please correct me if I'm wrong, Kitty, but I had to look some of this up over the holidays to make sure you and others who followed similar food laws could have something nice, too. It's... you can't eat meat and cheese together? Fish has to have both fins and scales? You can't eat meat from creatures like pigs? And vegetable dishes and most poultry is usually considered safe? Oh, and most if not all shellfish is considered a big no-no?"

Shadowcat has posed:
Kitty snorts. "Thankfully, no" Kitty says watching them all, "He's chasing flies and things so" Kitty ponders with a look over to Josiah then Shannon, with a nod to Josiah. "Sure, I can give you some recipes to start" Kitty nods with a nod as she gets up and stretches, glancing toward the house. "Tell you what. I'll get started on that if you like?" she adds and looks to the mansion, running for it.

Firefly (Barrows) has posed:
    Josiah smiles and hugs shannon back. He then watches her eat. He watches Kitty run off and he looks back to Shannon. "So what would you like to do today? we have the entire mansion to run around in." He says with a grin.

Shannon Lance has posed:
     "I hadn't thought that far ahead," Shannon replies, with a light shrug. "If the weather were a little warmer, I'd say go for a swim or something like that. Dunno... does it feel warm enough for that? The lake's probably freezing still..."

Red has posed:
"I just saw you all gatherign up here. So you don't have a plan eiher? That's tough. Though I didn't bring one either, so who Iam I to talk?" Alice cuckles.

Pixie has posed:
Megan Gwynn smiles, eating her soup quietly for a moment or two, though it's a bit warm on a warm summer day and she has to cool her mouth down with some water, "Well, it's a nice day for something..Guess maybe I'll go flying or something later." she glances towards the mansion as Kitty runs off and starts to head off that way too.

Shannon Lance has posed:
     "Hey, we still have to have that race among all the fliers here," Shannon quips, grinning at Megan. "Yes, that includes you. I bet you kick tailfeathers in the sky now!" Dancing a little bit as she nibbles on her soup, she giggles, grinning at them both. "Winner gets a large pizza of their choice all to themselves... though maybe we could have pizza for everyone else, too, so nobody's left out."

Red has posed:
"Suuure, you fliers go flying, and I sit without stuff to do here. So, well, we'll see. I will figure something out. Something." she note as Alice turns to go back to the dormitory.

Shannon Lance has posed:
Shannon chuckles softly and grins at Alice, Josiah, and Megan. "Well, we could have a race on the ground for other students, and either a pizza party or a cookout after. Hey, we've got all this space outside to run around, fly, whatever, and we're cooping ourselves up in our dorms. That's... that's... sacrilege!"
