Title: The Longshot Fan Club
Liz Guthrie - December 28, 2010 06:53 AM (GMT)
Alright ladies and gents (if you swing that way, no judgment here) as you may well know Longshot is at the Mansion. What you may not know is that he is here on some nefarious scheme by the Hellfire Club to spy and gather as much information as he can. So what better way to do that than to prey on teenage minds and get them to giggle away X-Men secrets while they are getting lost inside his eyes and making notebooks with "Arthur hearts ___" or "Mrs. ____ Longshot"? So we are basically going to have an unofficial Longshot fan club that follows him around and gives away whatever dirty secrets students at the mansion would know that he would find useful.
Some examples of information could be anything from telling him about the students at the mansion and all their powersets and weaknesses, to showing him the secret passageways in the halls and where the X-Jet is hidden. So no security codes or anything like that but just little things that Longshot would see as good tactical knowledge.
Now I know some of you are saying, "My character is so grounded and would never be caught up in fan girl fever." That's fine. You don't have to be a part of the hardcore group that follows him around like lost little puppy dogs. But one of Longshot's powers is empathatic charm, so this could be a chance for your character to act out of character and be flustered and let stuff slip while talking to him. For instance, Anne Lee won't be a part of the main group but will follow the group around and when she talks to Longshot is going to give him information she heard through the rumor mill.
So if you want to be in on this, because it will be really funny and actually drive the story a little further, please sign up below. I'm thinking we should probably limit this to 5 to 6 student/young X-Men but if there is enough interest I might open it to more.

Oh god no.
Ugh, you are so lucky I'm in Japan right now other wise we will be having a serious discussion about the people you choose to crush on.

Anne Lee will also make-sure even the wallflower girls and guys will know of Longshot being at the mansion. Manipulation of the rumor-mill, ftw.
Also, Anne Lee is a gather of information on just about anything going on at the mansion. But she'll be more shadow than fan swooning as stated. (Which can lead to confrontation between her and the other girls, possibly, because she's not part of the group.)

hahaha... count Melody in... I also think it'd be funny if Kel and Longshot met in one of the upcoming threads, but that may merely be to see whether he gets as irked IC. Look alike contest, we have a winner.

Eh, Why the hell not. Casey'll be in this, as a shadow. Good luck Longshot ^.~ You'll need it >:3
