[SANDBOX] The united states of Fray (for [livejournal.com profile] cantjossme primarily)

She's gotten so used to coming and going through her window/the front door, that Mel pretty much takes it for granted now that she can come and go between Milliways and Haddyn as she pleases. So when she climbs through the window this time round, it takes her a few seconds to realise she's not in Kansas any more.

That's a twentieth century expression. She's been hanging around Mikey too long.

Her slouched posture doesn't change as she glances around this strange formless place, but she does slide her not'scythe out of the sheath on her back, taking the opportunity as she does so to glance at the switchblade inside her wrist. Not glowing, so she's not actually in danger yet.

She stands still, waiting for something new to happen.

A few moments later and something does happen.

There's a flash of light and a poof of smoke and suddenly there's another Fray in the room. She immediately wobbles and crouches over for about a second too as she tries to keep her stomach from escaping through her mouth.

"Jesu! Geez Will you weren't kidding about that re-entry part," Mel groaned as she tried to get her bearings.

Mel's hand had been reaching for her own axe as she turned around before seeing a version of herself in front of her.

"What the hell..?" she said almost in unison with her doppelganger. "Oh crap. Did I switch powers with that Madrox guy?"

"A mutant who can duplicate himself," Mel said moving her hand away from her weapon. "Which you would know if you were me. Which you aren't. But you are. Ruttin' hell, what's going on?"

"Seventeen," Mel replied, still boggling at the fact she was talking to herself. "And I'm going to have to have a long talk with Willow when I get back. You get sent here by a spell too?"

"Kinda sounds like my school," Mel said finally giving her other self a closer examination. "Except it's not at the end of anything but someplace called Virginia. Got sent back in time by a bunch of watchers who thought I needed to go there. Will was trying to send me back."

She notices her other self looking at the scythe. "Let me guess. You met Urkonn too? Battle a giant Lizard that was trying to destroy Versi?"

"Harth," Mel replied in agreement and shuddered slightly. It's the first time she said his name since arriving at Fandom High School.

And you couple with what Harth did right after the death of the giant lizard...

Mel shuddered again.

"Is he still around where you are?"

"He's still back at home for me," Mel replied trying to mentally get her thoughts around this alternate timeline thing.

You'd think she'd have a handle on it by now with all weird folk from school but...

"Um. This tav doesn't happen to be called Caritas and a Zombie band, does it?" Mel asked carefully. "That's a local place where I go to school."

Mel couldn't help but snort as she rolled her eyes. "I know. It's toy for the most part but there are definite things that make up for it," Mel explained. "I've got two watchers who won't set themselves on fire and there's a bunch of people there who are familiar with the slayer thing. Granted there are no lurks there and I spend most of my time patrolling... nothing. So what's this Milliways thing?"

[identity profile] cantjossme.livejournal.com 2007-03-19 04:22 pm (UTC)(link)
"Yeah. That's one thing about Fandom. Clear skies everywhere," Mel agreed. "Actual daylight on a regular basis is something I'll miss if I ever get back home. Though according to the creeps that sent me back, it won't happen unless I get that whole psychic slayer mojo back."

"About what? The slayer connection thing?" Mel asked. "Um. Why? Did you get it?"

[identity profile] cantjossme.livejournal.com 2007-03-19 04:37 pm (UTC)(link)
"Oh."

Mel dug her toe into the ground a bit at that. Is that what it's going to take?

"Was it hard? Dusting him, I mean."

[identity profile] cantjossme.livejournal.com 2007-03-19 04:50 pm (UTC)(link)
Another person Mel hadn't thought of... or rather tried not to think of since she went back in time.

"Yeah," she said with catch in her voice. "I bet."

She looked around the "room" trying to get a better idea of where they were and to desperately change the subject. "So you think we're it? Just two Mel's from different timelines?"
