A portal opens up in the Nexus. Out of the portal comes a very loud Boom from an explosion on the other side. Less than a second later a red and blue figure flies out through the white portals horizon and does a very good 'Human Cannonball' impression before strings of white weblike material fire out from behind the figure and attach to various pieces of furniture, rafters, walls and even a space whale.

He slows himself down enough to drop to the floor with a groan. Then the Scarlet Spider wobbly gets to his feet and looks around. After a stumble or two he sees the sign and the various gathered people. Putting 2 and fish together he gets alternate reality dealywhopper.

"uhm. Ok. What would you do with your life if you knew you were gonna die within the next 5 years?"

The man in black watching from a quiet corner merely arches one eyebrow at the display. Vigilantes tend to have a flair for entrances, and he'd be a hypocrite to complain, but at least this one appears accidental. "The same thing I'm doing now. I could die any day, but that's always been the case." Beneath the low brim of his hat is a face heavily lined with age, and silver hair, so he may ponder his mortality slightly more than he used to, but it's always been a risk of the job.

"Kinda what I was going for myself. Shouldn't give up what I do just because of a terminal illness. Life is one in general, right?" He chuckles some. Which causes a wince cause of some bruised ribs.

"Hm. You might seek help in the Nexus Clinics," He makes a vague gesture in that direction, a heavy fire opal flashing on the third finger of his left hand. "It's no guarantee, of course. What is it you do?" He has an idea already, from the flashy costume, but he's still curious to see how the young man puts it.

"Crime fighter. Mostly organized crime. But there are a few supers out in LA." Glances towards the Nexus Clinics area. "I'm a clone. My cells are deteriorating." He shrugs some.

The old man gives a professional nod, unsurprised. It is both a blessing and a curse to meet so many other vigilantes in the Nexus. "Cloning is a little beyond anything that exists in my world, but so is half the technology in the Nexus. It can't hurt to ask."
28th-Feb-2010 02:44 am (UTC)
"Yeah. Thanks. I might look into it." He offers his hand out. "Names Ben."
28th-Feb-2010 05:29 pm (UTC)
The hand that grips his is gnarled with age, but powerful nonetheless. "The Shadow. We seem to be in a similar line of work." He seems to find nothing unusual in his own moniker.

Figure out what you'd really like to do in your life and work to make it happen. Places you want to see, things you want to try, asses you want to kick.... A lot of people put things off figuring they could always do it sometime in the future.

"Yeah. That sounds like it would have been a good plan." He nods.

I had a long-running medical issue that nearly killed me a few years ago, so it's something I've thought about.

"Got something myself. I'm a clone. Cells are starting to break down. Eventually I'll turn into a pile of dust."
3rd-Mar-2010 07:23 am (UTC)
Sucks. I had something implanted, clamped, in my brain misfiring in spurts. It took a kind of nanosurgery to get it out safely.
3rd-Mar-2010 07:41 am (UTC)
"Ouch. That doesnt sound fun AT ALL. But you had nanites in your brain. Thats an accomplishment."
3rd-Mar-2010 07:50 am (UTC)
It was freaky as hell. I was as glad to get them out as the implant.

"Make sure my family would be taken care of," Swindle says, "And try my slagging best to stick around as a ghost."
2nd-Mar-2010 08:38 pm (UTC)
"My own family takes care of itself just fine without having to take care of me. Probably gonna leave them a long letter or video telling them I'm sorry for a lot of things. But yeah. Not sure how the whole ghost thing would work."
3rd-Mar-2010 02:27 am (UTC)
"Not sure myself," Swindle says with a shrug, "Though I was one before for a few months before a LOL brought me back to life."
3rd-Mar-2010 07:19 am (UTC)
"That seems handy." He chuckles
3rd-Mar-2010 02:55 pm (UTC)
"It's not something that you can count on, though," Swindle admits, "LOL's are by their nature unpredictable."

"You've not come across any LOLs, have you?" Swindle says, then tilts his head, "And may I ask why that particular question?"

Hope to bring down as many badguys as I can before I kick the bucket as well. Doing what I can to protect the masses. Word.
