Nestor: Your cousin drops by with a change of clothes and leaves you the keys to his Chevy Nova. You can tell he wants to know what the hell is going on, but seeing you banged up and feeling the tension in the air, he doesn't press the issue and leaves after a few minutes.

Boost: While the other guys are cleaning up, you call your apartment for the fifth time, desperately hoping Sarah will pick up (I had her name down as Julia for some reason). This time she does and you almost break into tears when you hear her voice. After asking her for the tenth time if she's ok, you're about to hang up when you hear her clicking away on the computer.

"Oh wow Jason, did you know a nova died here in Horizon City tonight? Some lady named Mama B." You didn't tell her about your meeting with her, but she's obsessed with all things Nova, constantly watching cheap tv shows like Who's Smarter Than a Nova? and America's Next Top Nova.

"Um, really? Where did you see that?" You try not to sound too freaked out.

"Over on Nova.net. Hmm, looks like her gas pipes exploded in her house, killed her instantly. That sucks."

"Yah Sarah, it does. Tell you what, why don't you find something else to do besides sit in front of the computer all night, ok?

She reluctantly agrees and hangs up a bit later. You tell the others and they feel the same thing, that was quick to make the web.

After searching through Javi's phones of questionable legality, you guys find one that has a decent browser and pull up Nova.net. Sure enough the most recent posting under the Nova News section is Mama B, Dead! posted by The Doorman.

Odd, the posting looks like it was made within a minute or two of the actual explosion. Hell, you guys were still on her lawn when this thread was started.

"Who da f**k is this Doorman guy?" Javier asks, looking over the shoulder of whoever's holding the phone.

Mama B wrote:
"Gotta get 'round to talkin' to the Doorman."

"That's the last thing she said to me before she died," Fenris says quietly. "'Gotta get 'round to talkin' to the Doorman.' she said. I thought she was talking about Charon or her god. I didn't think that it was actually someone called the Doorman."

After a pause, Fenris continues, "if Mama B said she had to speak to the Doorman, then we probably should make contact, too."

(Pm answered Dustland)

Jason's call moved Harrison more than the Doorman lead.
With that Doorman they had something to hang on: a new objective and a bit of hope.
Now, he was overtaken by other considerations...

"Javi, you got another of those burner phone? Fuck that paranoia... I really need to make a call..." he asks
//I really want to get back home now...//He thinks

"What do we do guys? We can organize a meeting with that Doorman...less official this time...If he's one of Mama B's relative he may have felt that accident...Maybe that's his power...Maybe he can even feel we want to meet him?..."
He was obviously in a hurry now

"Or maybe he can see the present, or the future. Or maybe he called the attack..." Nycto chimes in.
"We can send him a PM through Nova.net asking some questions... If he adds up, we can arrange a meeting with him."

At Harrison's request, Javier gestures toward his stash. "Knock yourself out, man. Just let me know which one you used so I can take care of it. Speaking of which..."

He takes the phone that Jason used once he's done with his call. Stepping away from the group, he grips it in his hand, and the smell of burning plastic fills the air.

An unrecognizable lump of half-melted plastic drops from his hand.

Burners, indeed.

At the suggestion the group meet with the Doorman, Javier shrugs, "Sounds like a plan. I don' mess aroun' wid dat Internet s**t so someone else'll need to put the touch on this dude. I'll be glad to come along to the meet, though." Thin tendrils of smoke writhe from the eyes of the tattoos on his hands.

Jason gives the phone back, grateful to have Sarah safe, "We could use a library computer, it be harder to trace to any of us, it's how I usually get on Nova.net."

"Thanks Javi!You've just earned your drink"
//I won't try to know where they come from...It's not the time to turn my nose up... Especially if Novas end up branded as fugitives...//
Harrison searches the stash with eagerness, pick one, and dial Susan's number.

(Dustland since you managed Jason's call, the idea of Harrison's one is to tell Susan that he's alright and that he'll be home soon and that he couldn't call her sooner... coated with tender words...)

Fenris washes up. He finds a flannel shirt that fits him but otherwise washes the rest of his attire including his boots ensuring the powder smell is off them.

Having all of his personal possessions destroyed in the bomb and no one to call, Fenris spends his time looking around the warehouse and the surrounding ones for useful items listening in on the team to keep track of them. Like Javier, he doesn't have the patience for the Internet these days and waits for the team to connect to the Doorman.

(Can't do it i'm trapped in my own mini-plot^^ But i guess we've reached the point where it doesn't matter any more! We can simply use a burner phone)

"I'll do it!"
Nycto picks the phone with good browser capabilities and logs in as "FriendofMabel". Then he writes a PM to the Doorman

///Doorman:
I'm a Nova that was with Mama B. at the time of her death. When she died, she spoke of going to see you, and minutes after she was dead you wrote about it.

I would like to know how you knew it, and your relation with her.

So, supposing that you know each other, and you know something about her, I also would like any additional information you might have about her death.

If you want to help, please answer this message, and after that, maybe we can meet.

FriendofMabel///

Ok this doesn't reveal any info about the attack, our numbers, or if we're still together. If he is a fake or isn't related to the attack it might allow us to know it. If he's one of the attackers then he won't have new information, only that one survived...

He then presses the send button.
"Hope I'm not putting us in the wolfs mouth... "

(I'll get back to the PM to The Doorman a bit later once I have some time to mull things over.)

Volsung: You call Susan, hoping she hasn't logged onto Nova.net and read the news about Mama B. She wasn't too happy about you going to meet with her, having her doubts about everyone's intentions these days concerning Novas, even the well liked Mama B's.

Mercifully she picks up on the first try and when she realizes it's you, she begins to sob and babble uncontrollably, upset because the local news just came on and anounced that the well-loved local Mama B had died in a gas line explosion at her house a half an hour before.

You try your best to calm her and promise her you'll come home soon (you silently hope that's not a lie) and will be careful regardless of what happened to Mama B. You end the call by asking her to stay off the computer until you can get home.

After a few tense minutes, a reply:

FriendofMabel

Really? You were there with her? Holy crap, how did you survive the blast? I just saw the footage on novatube; looks like the gas line took down the whole house!

I met her here, on Nova.net. I liked to read what she had to say, kind of uplifting considering most people on here are either out to kill us or want to use their gifts to take over the world. Very cliche really.

I know it's kinda weird, but I like to listen to the police scanner, you know, see if I'm needed. The whole superhero thing I guess. I heard the call come in about the explosion but didn't think much of it. One of the officers must have known her because when they read out the address a moment later, he said something about it being Mama B's house.

I just assumed that there can't be too many Mama B's in Horizon City. They didn't say anything about someone else being there, guess you took off before the fire department and cops showed?

Well, I thought the gas line blew, but you think different? Let me know, this could be serious! Who would want to hurt Mama B?

Hit me back!

The Doorman

Nycto shows the message to the others in the room.
This has to be a group decision...
"From this message he is a Nova like us. What do you think? Should we trust him?"

After showing the message to the others, Nycto uses the phone to browse Novatube for Mama B. and explosion and watch the movies there, seeing if:
1- He can see what kind of movies are there (TV, homemade, aftermath of the explosion, the explosion itself, etc)
2- He can identify if it was a bomb or missile
3- If he can see anyone suspicious around the "accident" site
