Changes [Jun. 14th, 2004|10:34 pm]

[mood |surprisedsurprised]

Life's changed again, everything changes so quickly these days.

I mean, I never thought I would be here, never thought any of this would happen and I definitely didn't think I'd ever see John or Rogue again, John's changed a lot, mostly for the better and Rogue, she's just as I remember her and still just as breathtaking. I half expected her to snap my head off, which to be fair to her, I deserve, a thousand times over.

We talked just like the old days, even laughed .. it felt good, it felt normal. I don't think anything feels normal in this world anymore but it was good to see her again, really good. I held her through the night, I don't really know what this means or if she wants it to mean anything or if I want it to mean anything...it was just nice.

I'm not the same Bobby Drake I used to be, I've changed, we all have but I can't help but wonder if I've changed for the better or not...sometimes, I think I have and at other times, I'm not so sure.

Anyways I'd better move, I need to talk to Scott.

Life Is Rarely Simple [Jun. 7th, 2004|02:10 am]

Well.....wasn't that fun? Note the sarcasm in that sentence.

Let's see, what did old Bobby boy learn today? He learnt, that, in fact, those walking and talking human beings he was attacked by, were actually the brand spanking new type of Sentinels, no more of those giant hunkering robots, he's so used to, no, no, that would be too easy. Now I get to be even more paranoid than normal, thinking anyone or everyone could be one of those things, and to think, I'm not even sleeping enough as it is.

Got to talk with Wanda though, so that was a plus, seems she used my directions to come around and see me, which was nice. She seems to have history with John and Scott though, I missed out on that entire conversation as I was in the kitchen whilst they were talking. And it would also seem, John used to work for the government, but not just anyone in the government, the President himself, talk about another shock. I mean, he was doing good work, don't get me wrong but it was still shocking and I have no idea, how to take it.

Rewrapped my wounds, they are healing but it's taking forever, like Wanda said, what I wouldn't give for a healing factor, just as long as it didn't come with all the hair that Logan has. My head still hurts, but a couple of painkillers soon take care of that, still got the ice rose I formed whilst Wanda was with me, maybe I should practice some?

Scott might have my hind if I did though, don't want that.

Should Have, Could Have [Jun. 2nd, 2004|04:30 pm]

So...what is there to say aside from I hurt?

I don't know what to do, I lost Alex...he was taken, they took him. The Sentinels and the people who control them took him, I couldn't stop them, I tried but I just couldn't. The Sentinels were different, they looked like me or you, like human beings, they weren't...the Sentinels I remember, but there was one large Sentinel, I should have done more, I should have been able to stop them, I should have fought harder..or something.

My head is pounding so damn hard, I can't even see straight, my body is racked with pain but I keep thinking I should have done more, I mean, Alex he took me under his wing. Was giving me a chance to be something, and now he's gone, I didn't do enough...

Luckily for me a woman found me and was kind enough to take me in and clean me up, she seems kind of edgy but overall she's okay, and seems to know what she's doing in the sense of how to wrap wounds and stuff.

I need to find Jubes or John even, I just need to talk to someone from the old days, nothing makes sense anymore.

Old Faces [Apr. 13th, 2004|10:12 pm]

This city is just full of surprises, I had nearly forgotten that.

Saw Jubes the other day, it was good and bad seeing her. Good because I missed her and she was alive but bad because well she looked bad, like she hadn't seen a warm home in months which in her case, most of the other mutants cases, it's the truth. I'm dealing with some guilt issues over this whole thing, not like my presence at the mansion would have changed much but I might have been able to help back then, made things better but yeah, guilt issues.

Went by the mansion, and ran into John of all people. Seems he survived as well, we got into a fist fight and a lot of angry words were exchanged. But our anger at each other has no place in this new world, it's more important, we help one another as its mutants out for themselves. But it was weird to see him, to feel old emotions I had buried come rushing back to the surface, I swear he's the only guy who can make my blood boil with one word.

I met with Alex again, and I've agreed to join with him, to make this world a better place. I'm wearing a X again, his first ever X and I'm proud. It's about time, I did something about this whole situation.

Leaving [Apr. 11th, 2004|05:24 pm]

[mood |nervousnervous]

I did it, I left home.

I couldn't tell them face to face so I just left a note, packed up my stuff, grabbed my credit card and hopped the first bus headed Manhattan way. I really have NO idea what I'm doing, all I know is. This is the right thing to do, time I started fighting for what I am and for my and the other mutants rights, just like the Professor taught us.

I need to find somewhere to stay when I get there, but from the sounds of it. Things are pretty rough in Manhattan but no-one's seen my face, I'm not on any of the "wanted" mutants lists, so I should be okay. I'm just lucky that my mutation is on the inside, the ones who have them on the outside must have things rough but yeah I can do this, right?

Alright, going to stop that now. The thinking thing that is. Never worked too well for me in the past

Choices [Apr. 10th, 2004|11:24 pm]

I had a choice once, the X-Men or my family and I chose my family

I went home, told them, that I had lost my powers. That I was normal, they seemed happy enough. Glad to have their nice normal son back, but when I saw the news, about the mansion, about the mutants. I suddenly found myself wishing I hadn't gone home, that I had stayed with the others, my thoughts went to Rogue first of all. I know that's selfish but I couldn't help but think what if something happened to her? What if she's dead?

I made this choice all by myself, you see..I'm big on family and I had a good one until, that day with the police and John, I just couldn't say goodbye to that you know?

But now, all I see on the news is talks about mutants, mutant deaths and massacres. I'm the Iceman, my blood isn't supposed to boil but when I watch the news, I can feel it bubbling in my veins and all I want to do is reach into the TV and rip those smug humans apart. How could they do this? How could they hurt so many people just because they're different?

I don't know what to do, I'm safe, I have a home and I have a family but I can't just ignore what's going on. Not when it's my friends and my kind being hurt....
