Toby reappeared a little later, just as dirty and shell shocked as they were. The teens were sitting together under the tree, girls on the inside; Toby dropped to sit beside Chip, staring at the remains of his store.

“Toby,” Vida said in surprise.

“We thought you were…” Chip trailed off, glancing uneasily across the road.

“I wasn’t in there,” Toby said dully. “There were…they kept screaming. I went to see if I could help.”

He didn’t elaborate, and they didn’t ask. They’d all heard enough screams in the last few hours.

“Why only the Rock Porium?” Vida asked suddenly. “None of the other stores are damaged. Just yours.”

“Music’s forbidden.”

“They can’t forbid music!” Xander protested.

“Tell them that,” Chip muttered, watching four or five Hydiacs march down the centre of the street.

“We should find somewhere to shelter,” Xander said quietly. “It’s getting late.”

“Not our place,” Vida said quickly.

Nor mine, Xander thought, but he didn’t say it. He desperately didn’t want to go back to that empty house, that empty neighbourhood, but if no one else had any idea…

“I know somewhere we can go,” Chip said.

“You’re bleeding,” Toby said vaguely.

“Yeah, I know. Come on.”

The air around them darkened, shadows deepening, and Chip and Vida looked up in alarm. “It’s only sunset,” Xander told them. “Chip, we need to get off the streets.”

“Yeah. On your feet, Toby.”

“Come on, Maddie.” Xander and Vida took an arm each, easing her to her feet.

“Right. Let’s go.” Chip glanced once to the west, where the last of the light was fading rapidly, and then turned away.

Uh...mods? Still waiting for the answer to last week's question...

Sorry it took me so long to answer your question; I didn't see it at first.

I'd say go ahead and tag for whichever teams appear specifically in those chapters. :)

Thanks shuri! And sorry...rereading there that seemed really rude, the way I phrased it. It absolutely wasn't intended that way. :)

So the next chapter, which has Time Force and Lightspeed, will be tagged with those two teams, and the one after, which has everyone, tagged for MF as well?

Thank you!

It's alright! In the future, if you have questions for us, it would be better to leave it at the Etcetera or FAQ pages; I track both of those and thus get e-mail notifications for new comments. If it's tucked away in a post to the comm, though, I'm more likely to miss it.

And yes, that's correct. :)

I really feel for Xander. Just that one little line there...

I like how you described the sunset. I hadn't even thought of what those would seem like in a colourless world.

I wonder what Chip knows that the others don't.

Re: Man...
Setting this in the colourless world seemed like such a good idea, until I came to the colour prompts. :D

And yes, poor Xander! Things get worse for him later. But they get better too.

Re: Man...
*laughs* Yeah, I can see how that would become a problem.

Oh. <3 Have I mentioned that Xander's my favourite? :D *is looking forward to it now*

Re: Man...
::Grins:: In this AU, Xander's the head of the team, and that doesn't change even when they get back in touch with LS and TF. I even made Nick tell someone Xander was the boss...just 'cos I could.

Re: Man...
Oh, that DOES sound interesting. And it makes sense too. Xander and Vida were both the co-leaders of the group before Nick, with Xander stepping up as the spokeman, while Vee tended to be the muscle. So it makes sense that Xander would step up as leader in a situation like this, especially if he didn't have Nick there. And then having Nick join after that's established... Yeah, cause while Nick's done a good job as leader, he always struck me as someone who was simply happy to be a part of a close group, and just lead because he had to, not because he really wanted to.
