Log:
==[ Bowery and Lower East Side - New York ]==

At its best, this section of New York is working-class residential; at its worst, it degenerates into a slum. The Lower East Side once housed the sweatshops of the New York garment industry, and not all of it has come very far. (One part that hasn't is the Lower East Side Tenement Museum - yes, a historic tenement turned into a museum on the history of tenements.) The streets are lined by several-story buildings, many with ground-level storefronts - corner markets, coffee shops, bars, secondhand stores. Blank walls are adorned with murals in the better areas, graffiti in the worse. The streets and sidewalks are busy with traffic, vehicle and pedestrian, till several hours after dark.

Past that time, of course - and anytime in the worst sections - an unwary visitor is liable to be separated promptly from his or her wallet. And that's after several years of improvement in the area's crime rate, starting with extensive video surveillance by the NYPD. In the Lower East Side, Big Brother really *is* watching.

==========================================================================

It's been a maddening week for Dani, between mad gods trying to wreck havoc, the new team and the end of school year quickly approaching she barely has enough time for sleep let alone relaxing, so when she go a call from a friend she hasn't heard from in years she jumped at the distraction. So here she is, where they agreed to meet, waiting outside the diner. May as well have a bite to eat while they discuss stuff.

Dagger came around the bend and smiled walking up to dani "It's so great too see you again, thanks for meeting me but are you taking care of yourself?"

"Well enough considering" Dani replies "How's Ty and the rest of the New Warriors?" she'll offer a quick hug of greeting, before she moves in the direction of the restaurant. "I haven't seen or heard of you guys in the last few weeks." heard of mostly since they aren't exactly in the same social circles "It's like the New Warriors feel into a deep pit and disppeared.


Dagger hugs dani warmly "you should try to get more sleep and if you can and please tell Alex I'm sorry I couldn't make it date. I've left messages but I haven't heard from him" walking toward the restaurant with dani, always good to have girl friends. "Yeah we were here briefly for the good attack on our home at the church but the new warriors are dealing with something in madri poor and then I got pulled to another attack....they seem to be under a spell out something, thank goodness for Wanda's help"


Dani frowns at the first of Tandy's words, her hands going to her shoulders as she pushes the girl away gently "Alex is dead. That explosion that was in the upper east side last month. He was in it." whatever feeling have been brought up at the reminder is pushed down, now is not the time for melancholy "Something or someone is making the native gods very hostile. I've been drawn into several encounters with them myself." the two are talking outside one of the diners in the area.


Dagger blinks in shock "Oh dani...I'm so sorry, I didn't know! He and I hooked up when spider woman saved my butt in a fight and brought me to him at some place you all own in the city when you want to get away...but then in madripoor cloak said something and....I'm so sorry, if there's anything I can do you let me know ok?" she was dressed in her costume with her salvation army coat on over it nodding to dani "That makes sense, my light daggers passed him a little but once I stabbed him with a light sword he fell to the ground in Alaska and when he woke he snapped out of it. What has been going on?"

A slight hum can be heard against the noise of the New York streets. The sound grew slowly louser as the source came closer. Clad in violet and surrounded by the bluish shimmer of the forcefield that kept her in the air in the hight of the first story. She seemed to look for someone, but as she spotted the small cafe she lowerd the fields that kept her up to land slowly.


Dani only nods, at most of the explanation of how she knows her former team mate "That was the building that exploded." she then shakes her head "Just keep it to yourself. We haven't made it common knowledge yet. As soon as it is all X-Factor's enemies will decide to come out and play." that's followed by a shrug "We haven't discovered who is behind the mad gods hostility. They tried to make me their avatar, that didn't work well for them. They are saying the want revenge for what the white man did to them in the 19th century." as she begins to hear the humming noise she look around warily. With all that's going on she probably is starting to think anything out of the oridinary is a potential threat.

Dagger nods sympathetically "I understand I'll keep my peace about and if your team needs some back up when the time comes you can count on the new warriors. Y'know, we should get together like this more often" then listens nodding "bet you gave them hell but oof...century is a lot of time with a lot to be upset about. it was almost like the god I fought was being controlled" looking around for the source of the hum curiously. her paranoia wasn't as high as dani's

With a quite graceful landing Network made a few steps forward, stopping the momentum of the flight. behind the transparent faceshield, she smiles a bit, already opening a task to read the menu of the cafe while she speaks up "I am sorry, jst stoping by for a latte machiato and some bagles." she excuses herself to the twho who looked to her worrying.

Seeing that the humming comes from a woman who doesn't seem to pose a threat at the moment Dani visable relaxes "They are being controlled, at least a few of them. I have no clue who would be powerful enough to control gods or would would even want to." that said a beeping comes from what could only be a comm device of some sort, and from the pattern of it, it seems urgent. She sighs "Well have to continue this later Tandy. I'll be in touch." she begins to hurry away, pulling the com device from her pocket and starting to speak into it.
