Last night a certain hedge witch became a patient at Metro General. Which is, to be sure, better than being a hostage in the Atlantic Ocean. A certain Old Wolf though she could use cheering up though, so he made a brief detour to… well, let's not dwell on where. He knows that the young witch has some friends that she's not seen in quite some time and he knows how to find those friends. And get them in past visiting hours with no one the wiser. Portals are lovely, after all.

***

A wiiiiitch! It's a wiiiiiiitch! It's Rain. She is at least, pretty happy to be out of the ocean, even if she did bond with some of the crew looking after her. Namor did deliberately spare her and gave her a bit of help out but … well, it all feels a bit much. She's been patched up, and mostly being kept an eye on. And Namor's 'light stab' is pretty hefty compared to say, a surface light stab maybe. He did say Captain America would've made it to surface just fine. Too bad Rain doesn't have abs of FREEDOM!. She pauses, blinking. Her TV is on low, and there's a small set of flowers from the household staff. Hey, she's a pretty benevolent boss as this goes.

The TV show on? Some marvels of engineering. "That's not- Bah." Siiiigh.

***

Zee was speaking with Misfit and Kate in Titans Castle when she gets a message from Fenris about Rain and the 'special' visiting hours. The other two women, who may or may not know Rain, have asked to come along and Zee doesn't see why not. The more the merrier, right?

Conjuring up a boquet of flowers, which she hands to Misfit to hold, the young magician has both women hold her shoulders as she teleports them to the co-ordinates that Fenris provided. Right into Rains room with a soft 'pop' sound.

One minute, there's nothing, the next three young women are standing there, one of them holding a bunch of flower.

***

"Man, I will never get used to that," Kate shakes her head as they simply pop into being in a different place, catching her balance and taking a look around. "By which I mean, hi!" she exclaims, wiggling her fingers at Rain with an awkward smile. "Get well soon party!"

***

Misfit has the strangest look on her face there, eyes very wide "That is how it is like when you bounce Zee… that… is not at all like how when I bounce…" she has this wiggity look for a moment then takes a deep breath and blushes a little bit. "Hi!" she lifts the flowers she is holding up.

***

Fenris chuckles. "Hello Rain. Thought you might be feeling a bit lonesome." And, honestly, what isn't made better by Kate, Zee and Misfit?

Well, criminal enterprises. But aside from that, nothing, really. "You're looking better." And she's a healer so he won't bother with the healing magic.

"Sorry about the abruptness Kate. It stops being quite so jarring after a while."

***

In fairness, at least she gets her own room. But it's still a bit lonely since Rain's family these days is mostly demonic, or would have difficulty getting in during visiting hours. Nevertheless, she seems surprised, blinking. Her mouth opens. Her mouth closes. "Teleportation, huh? Yeah, it still weirds me out," She admits with a wry smile to Kate. "But I'm glad to see you. I'm kinda tired, so I'm sorry," She admits. The violet-eyed witch sits up, looking to the group. Though, she winces. Her midsection reminds her not to wiggle.

"Aww. that's too kind of you. There's some uh." Look around. Either way. "Thanks. Healing myself is kinda tough because I have to concentrate but if I give it a bit, I'll be good as new soon. Maybe mint condition." Pause. "And hey, his teleports are better than mine. I ended up in England in drag once." Ahem. She goes quiet a moment. "Please, um, sit if you like. Thank you…" She could all but pull a hermit crab shell over herself.

Rain does add, "And I don't even get pants here, either…"

***

Zee smiles brightly, nods to the Wolf God in thanks, before taking a seat. "I've always thought pants are overrated, have you /seen/ my stage costume?" Looking around the room, Zee smirks a little "I kind of thought that Captain might be hanging around somewhere."

***

"These definitely beat the rabbit holes," Kate smiles ruefully to Rain. "Those are pretty crazy." Of course Kate has a comparative experience of teleportation. It's Kate. Which explains the next statement: "I could call him if you want?" She moves over toward the TV, making a face at the show currently going. "Did they give you a remote, or is this what they put on to keep you mildly sedated?"

***

Misfit eyes the spot they came from then looks back "Remind me to not do Rabbit holes.." she mutters and then moves over and sets the flowers down "Zee created them…. " not wanting to take credit then smiles to Rain "Hi, I'm Misfit.. I'm .. uh new but I thought it would be nice to meet you and wish you well."

***

Fenris grins and waves his hand at the TV. It looks like it changes places to some kind of gladiatorial viking show. What only Rain and Zee may know (or Kate if she's payed attention) is what he's actually done is turned the glass surface of the TV into a scrying mirror for practice bouts in Asgard. "There. That should help, I think." He peers. Ooooh. That's Bragi and Skoll.

***

Rain doesn't say anything about Fenris' TV magic. Her eyes widen a bit, but it is impressive. "Sure, there's a remote here," She remarks to Kate. "I suspect they kinda keep it quiet… I haven't felt too wiggly," She admits. More tired, and achey likey. Nevertheless, she seems more awake now, smiling a little. "And I wish Captain could come, but the staff would probably have kittens." No furry buddies in the hospital, alas.

"I don't think I've gotten to try rabbit holes. I mostly do portals," She remarks. "They are lovely… and I'm glad you guys came," She might be tired and a bit beat up, but she's glad for the company. Her violet eyes reflect that she's a bit more alert. "I go by Rain. It's a pleasure to meet you, Misfit," She offers. "And I'm touched everyone came by. It was -" Pause. "It's - something." But huh. "Who's fighting?'

***

Zee is distracted by the Asgardian practice for a long moment… just staring at the TV screen before she recalls herself just in time to catch most of the conversation "Nice trick, Fenris, I'll have to get you to give me the channel for my TV." a mischievious smile lighting her face.

Seeing Misfit put the flowers down, without a vase, Zee waves a hand and speaks quietly

~ etaerC A ssalG esaV ~

And a vase appears next to the flowers.

Arranging the flowers in the vase, the young magician looks to Rain a little sadly, "That's terrible, don't they know pets make lots of things better. Maybe we could sneak him in for you one night" she laughs and winks.

***

"Oh, hey, that's more interesting." Kate's brows rise as Fenris changes the channel, head tilting appreciatively. She watches for a moment, then clears her throat, turning back to the others. "Also, food," she adds to Zee's suggestion. "The jello's never enough to make you really feel better, you know?"

***

Right, Misfit notes helpfully "I won't be smuggling anyones cat in anywhere, that is totes all you Zee…." she looks over at the TV Everyone is staring at and furrows her brow. "Is this some kind of new UFC league or something… they have an ultimate ninja show now too.. or american ninja.. I'm thinking of entering and seeing if I could win it." she steps over to peer at the TV now.

***

Rain grins, "Neat. Thank you." Then she looks a little less happy. "Yeah… but I guess they have to worry about sick people and people with allergies. He is still fuzzy and I doubt he'd be thrilled about people shaving him," She remarks. She is duly impressed. "Please, feel free to take the chairs. It's - not like I can get up and about." Rain seems a little miffed at this, but a stab to the midsection is a stab to the midsection. She can't wiggle about for a few days. Then a rueful smile. "I - it's familiar, at least. I was okay with fish but…" Well, fish. SO much fish.
"Don't worry. I will get to see Captain soon. And really? You're a ninja? Cool. You guys - I appreciate it." She goes quiet, probably to catch her breath. The witch is grateful. "… thank you." Again.

***

Zees already sitting and she grins at Kate… "Reckon Fenris would get us front row seats in Asgard?" she's totally delighted with the view.

"And yeah food, books and games…." peering at Rain she tilts her head "What're you're favourites.. We can definitely put together a care package for you." Misfits question gets a laugh "Not exactly UFC… maybe something that came before it though."

***

"It's definitely on my list," Kate grins to Zee, peeking out into the hallway. "Speaking of. What do you want, Rain?" she asks. "I'm going to go sneak us in some contraband stuff worth eating." With as much time as Clint spends in SHIELD medical, she's turned smuggling food into hospitals into a fine art.

***

Misfit keeps staring at the TV now. Then she blinks "Asgard?" she pivots and stares at Mr. Fenris "That is real?" ruh roh. "and.. not a ninja.. bat in training." yeah Oracle isn't here to yell at her so there, girl has ambitions really "But I bet I could win the ninja show hands down." confident too.

***

"I might be able to if you kept my name out of it." The old wolf chuckles. "They had special box seats for me personally that I'm sure they'd love if I visited again. I wasn't all that fond." To wit. Fenris was tied to a rock, in a cave, by an unbreakable chain. Alone. "Still, might be possible to get you a better view if you all really wanted to do that. Consider it a get well gift for Rain there. And yes, Misfit, it's real. Where do you think I came from?"

***

Rain is intrigued, too. The intensity of it all. She's probably tagged along with Loki here and there, but when she does -that-, she's in capacity as a minion. Er, apprentice. "I shouldn't be here more than a week or so. I just need not to be in pain long enough to concentrate." That's the rub. But every magic comes with a price. Rain is screwed if she's injured. "Hmm… well," She thinks. She likes pasta, she has some electrical engineering books and … well. "I have my ps vita on the kitchen table still. But don't go too too much trouble on my account," A wry smile.

She looks between them. "Just - hmm, ooh. I could use a soda." Definitely no no. "Sure, Asgard's another realm if I remember my cosmology right," She remarks. "I would be glad to go if everyone else does. Thank you," She doesn't seem to speak Fenris' name often, but that seems to be a gesture of respect. Names have power. "I suspect the company makes it."

***

"Ooooh, I'd love a soda please Kate. Let me know if you want a hand, so to speak" and Zee waggles her fingers at the other young woman. "If you don't mind me heading to your place, I can get that PS Vita for you… it's no trouble really." The Mistress of Magic settles into her chair more comfortably "So… what happened?" she just has to know!

***

"On it," Kate salutes the group with a wink, before she slips out into the hallway in search of contraband soda. Easy mission, she can totally handle this!

***

Misfit is still staring at the TV "I dunno.. I mean.. the collective unconscious of mankind personifying all the wolf myths and all into one Ur-Wolf or something." she sounds distracted as she watches then blinks "Wow.. so I could totally go to Asgard… and meet like Thor and Odin and Sif and stuff… that is amazeballs…" ruhroh.

***

"I'll pop in tomorrow then and deliver it to you" Zee will quite literally 'pop' in too… "You're very generous, Rain." as the woman offers the content of her cellar. "So Dr Strange, patched him up and another visitor, right…" Misfits comment get a small smirk "Just avoid Loki… I called him comic relief the other day, he wasn't impressed." Fenris gets a small grin "Sweet and young, Fenris?"

***

Fenris chuckles. "Don't, Zee. She likes me only sliiiiightly more than the rest of the asgardians. We have a history, and it's not a good one." But Idun did forgive him for the apple incident. Mostly. "She is one of the nicer asgardians though."

***

Rain smiles quietly, watching the group. "Not at all. You've met the staff and they seem to like you," She offers. If she knows about Fenris' heritage (and it's likely she does), she doesn't run around commenting on it. It would be rude. "You're always welcome at the manor. Feel free to help yourself to stuff in the cellar, too." She remarks. "And to me? Well. Kind of a weird story. I was at home, when Doctor Strange landed in my living room bleeding and carrying this leviathan calling horn thing. Apparently he stole it from Namor, mentioning he was worried Namor was gonna turn it on surfacers. I - don't require my patient's histories. I am not a judge or whatever… so I healed him up." It's a start.

***

"Well yes, the Ur-Wolf, but not made by mankind. I've been around for longer." Fenris grins. "Yes indeed. It would be fun for you I imagine. I, however, don't particularly want to go myself. I might find a way to send you care of a sweet young goddess though…"

"I thought - yeah. And I am fine with whatever you guys like. It's just nice to be back. ANyway. I got a second visitor a day or two later."

***

Misfit is distracted by the show once more "Sweet and young could be like millenium old still from the sound of it… this whole business is ssoo wierd… and um… what would they do if I just popped in and watched a match… I mean do they sell tickets or have bouncers?"

***

Aww. "Thanks," Rain beams. "And um, thank you. That's kind of you to say. Yeah, the second guest was Namor. He was not amused. I don't know why they took me hostage, but they did. I think they expected him to come after me. Also they kept asking about surfacer weaknesses. I did get to learn a few phrases, uhm, apparently a speedo and shells but I'm gonna pass on those," Her face goes 7 shades of red. Guess who's a bit shy? "And some stuff. I was treated pretty okay, despite the near skewering early on. Just stuck on a modified Atlantean vessel. There was a lot of fish." So much fish. "After a month and almost a half, they were a bit antsy. So … I was convicted of being a human. Namor gave me a red pill so I could breathe under water. He even stabbed me without it being immediately lethal, telling me to swim for it," She goes quiet. "I think he was trying to be nice, but-" He vastly overestimated Rain's capabilities.

"And age is just a number. Some beings don't age," She offers. "I don't think most mortals could reach it far as I know"

***

Zee smiles so innocently at Fenris and blinks and lets the commentary slide. "I think… Misfit…" Zee says slowly, the grin not really fading "that would be a very bad idea… and might end up with you in all levels of trouble."

As Rain adds to the story, Zee frowns a little "My goodness, that sounds like a kind of 'cruel to be kind' sort of thing. Is this Namor actually sane?"

***

Fenris chuckles. "It's less that you have to be worried about being thrown out, Misfit, and more that you should probably be wary of being invited to participate with no socially acceptable way to decline. Having someone along to help you navigate that is a very good thing."

***

Misfit seems to consider that and then nods "Okay that is a good point." seems the Wolf's logic is convincing to the young woman. She wanders over and settles into a chair "Who is Namor anyhow… some Atlantean supervillain?" yeah she really needs to read the reports and databases.

***

Rain smiles quietly, her turn to listen. "I don't - I don't think he sounded crazy. He is a king, so he's probably used to being treated differently," She notes. "And he did try to spare me as he could." She pauses. "I mean, I was fed, clothed and treated pretty well," She ponders. "I don't know. It's still odd. They did leave a mystic beacon that blew a hole in the ceiling. I think the staff fixed that pretty fast," She admits.

"He's right, it's uhm." She goes quiet a moment. "I don't know much about Atlantean politics. I think there's more than one kingdom but I don't know." She settles quiet.

***

"Well that's some story Rain" Zee smiles brightly and looks a little bemused "It sounds a little like he was trying to save you, in some crazy sort of mixed up way." Misfits and Fenris' conversation has had half an ear and the raven haired woman nods "I'm so glad you agree Misfit… "

***

Misfit ponders Rain's explanation "Well it sounds like it could have definitely been worse. I'm glad you made it out alive … guess I won't be visiting Atlantis though… not that I breath water…" she smiles to Zee "Well I don't want to get in trouble so I figure I should have a guide until I master Asgardian customs right?"

***

Fenris grins. "I'll introduce you to Idun sometime." He pauses a moment and thinks… "Hrm. I'll try any way. I've spent a lot of time hiding and I don't have a direct line. Give me a few days. Either way…" He stands and turns. "I should be going. Misfit, Zee, I'll see you later. Rain…" He opens a way and grins over his hsoulder. "Feel better."

***

Rain is looking a little tired. She did use a good deal of energy being peppy as she can be under the state. "I uhm, I think I saw people rescuing me before… I got eaten or something," She recalls. "But I don't know their names," She admits. "Maybe I'll find them soon." Then she goes quiet. "Thanks you guys, and I don't know. I imagine there's more than one kingdom. And see you," She waves a little. She grins back to Fenris. "I will do my best." Nod. "Be well. All of you."

***

"Thanks for organising to get us in Fenris. And Rain, I'll pop by tomorrow with your vita…Sleep well…." Looking at the younger woman, the young magician quirks an eyebrow "Are you teleporting with me, or bouncing?" If Misfit is going with her, she'll wait till the young womans hand is on her shoulder before she teleports out.

***

Misfit looks skeptical at the offer to teleport. "I will totes bounce myself, no offense Zee but it feels really wierd having someone else do it…." she smiles to Rain "Nice meeting you, can't wait to kick some crime butt when you are back on your feet." she slips back to her own feet and then bounces out with a flash of pink and purple smoke >pinkurple> gone in a flash.
