In an Alternate Universe where Marvel is contained within a single high school called Marvel High, Wade Wilson and Nate Dayspring have been developing a... relationship. Not everybody approves. Slash, slash, slashity slash. This is Chapter Twelve. Previous Chapters: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11
"Jean, please, just-- put the doors down and let's talk about this like rational people," said Nate calmly, as students screamed and ran about.
The doors of all the classrooms vibrated slightly, floating in the air above all their heads.
Wade said, "I've always wanted to be whacked in the face with a floating door. Totally Monsters Inc!"
Jean whacked him in the face with a door, and he flew back, hitting the wall with such force that it crumbled behind him.
"Jean, honey, owers-pay are excret-say," said Scott Summers, trying to approach his girlfriend, "You really don't want Mr. Xavier having to change everybody's memories again."
This had the opposite effect as intended, as Jean turned furiously on Scott and shouted, "You! I'm a telepath, you jerk! I can hear those thoughts about Emma all the time! You have no right to tell me what I should do!"
While Jean was yelling at Scott, Wade was trying to figure out if the little cupids floating around his head were real. His body was healing rapidly, but his mind hadn't quite recovered from Nate's kiss. Nate snuck over to Wade, and whispered in his ear.
"Wade, you okay? I need you to get the other students out of here. Wade?"
"Righto. One crowd control officer coming up. Soon as I can stand."
"Thank you," said Nate, and kissed him on the cheek, before back to deal with Jean and Scott.
Wade grabbed a couple of students that were hiding in the corner, and started to run. One of them was Bob, who hadn't quite processed what had just happened.
"Uh, Wade?" he asked, "I know this probably isn't the right time..."
"Nono, random student," said Wade, "I have a spare."
"My name's Bob."
Wade thought about it, and while making them duck a flying brick. He couldn't remember Weasel having any other friends.
"Doesn't ring any bells, Bob ol' chum."
"It would if you would just hang out with Weasel," explained Bob, "You haven't been hanging out with him recently."
"I always hang out with him!" cried Wade indignantly.
"But you've been hanging out with Nate, and Weasel, well, I think he thinks you think Nate's your new best friend."
"Seriously?" said Wade, shoving Bob and the other nameless student who ran away immediately out of the school, "Nate's not my best friend, he's my boyfriend!"
"Um, I'm not--- anyway, Weasel's jealous."
"He is? How sweet, in a kinda soap opera-y sort of way," said Wade, a little touched.
"I just thought I should tell you," said Bob, "Can I run away now?"
"Go right ahead, Bob," said Wade, and darted back inside to get more students.
Most of them, however, had powers, and the ones that didn't had already run away from the scene. Wade got the sudden idea to pull the fire alarm to empty the entire school, which was good thinking considering what happened next.
Nate was using his own telekinesis and Mr. Banner's very large desk to block the objects that Jean was flinging about. He wasn't helped by Scott shooting beams out of his eyes all over the place. He was relieved when Bobby and Jean-Paul had managed to get the rest of the innocent bystanders away.
Wade came running back into the scene, promptly slipping on ice, sliding down the hall, and crashing into Nate.
"Wow, this place looks awful," said Wade, observing the destruction.
It was at that point that the roof finally gave way and came crashing down.
I was going to have the entire fight be one chapter, but instead I've split it into two parts. I apologize if this chapter seems confusing. I'm not really used to writing action scenes.
