Lunacy is, as some will tell you, derived from the same word as luna. The moon. Moon madness, some called it. And the mad were moon touched. Whether or not that's true is a matter for debate but there is 'something' to it. Fenris is relaxing on a rooftop near Arkham scratching a ward into the roofing. The old Asylum is cursed and has been since before there was an asylum there. Surely you didn't think it's poor escape record was just bad luck and mismanagement, do you?

-

Misfit bounced in a while ago and decided to watch and tail him. She didn't call in to Oracle or get permission or nothing. Probably because she is having a bit of a rebellious teenage week this week and is still not entirely sure what to say to her. She doesn't want to appologize but well she thinks they both owe each other an appology.
That aside she peers down past you at the ward you are scratching "What does that do?" Charlie is still rocking her old outfit, fabrication takes time evidently.^t

-

"Lots of things, if you just mean wards in general." Of note may be the fact that Fenris, while human, is scratching the ward into the roof with claws that have sprouted from his hand. "This one keeps out foriegn energies." He nods in Arkham's direction. "From that place."

-
Misfit furrows her brow studying the wards and clawing "That is very cool" then looks to Arkham and then back to the warding. "Why are you worried about magic getting into Arkham, I thought we didn't stow magic villains in Arkham?"

-

"Not into Arkham, out of Arkham." Fenris finishes and stands up, the claws vanishing as if they never were. "You don't think that it's just a creepy building, do you? The ground has been cursed for centuries there. It's just a locus of bad things and all the bad that happens there only makes it worse."

-

Misfit looks down at the ward then over at Arkham once more "Oooh." she pauses "That would explain so much really. But why on earth would you build an insane aslyum prison on a cursed indian burial ground?"

-

"Because you don't know any better. Most people can't feel this stuff and the ones who can tend to ignore it." Fenris shrugs. "Once upon a time men knew how to tell these things but 'science' has since replaced their knowledge. Now they don't believe in it at all." He takes a deep breath. "Was there something you wanted?"

-

Misfit makes a hummm noise and nods very sagely, she does a mean sage nod even if its fundementally acting because newp Misfit isn't at all that wise. She has heart though. "Yeah I had a series of questions I I can borrow you for a few minutes." big surprise, this kid with questions. "Does the uh… Christmas present you got me need to be drained or worried about… will it explode eventually if I don't do something with the bleed off it is doing?"

-

"Well I suppose it could eventually release it's power… though you'd have to put a lot in it at once. More than I could. I designed it to slowly release the power back into you. Since that's where it comes from to begin with. I wouldn't give you a magical bomb for a present." The Old Wolf chuckles. "What's your next one?"

-

Misfit oohs and looks down at the rune then tucks it away "Cool thank you. Some people were worried when they saw it working and I didn't have answers for them." she looks around then up at the ksy "Soo… how bad would it be if a magical friend of mine was apprenticed to your dad, but she is totes nice lovable and really sweet…."

-

"Rain you mean." Fenris sighs. "We've met. She's a nice witch, yes. Loki is…" He makes a face. "Trouble. Without fail. Sometimes he means it and sometimes he does not, but he's trouble all the same. I avoid him where possible. The fact that she's alive and possessed of her own will is good. He may have plans for her, which isn't, or he may simply amuse himself by teaching her. That happens too sometimes…"

-

Misfit nods to that "Yeah my teammate, she is great and Captain is a blast but… yeah she is evidently Loki's apprentice sooo Vorpal is super worried but I'm like… eh." she shrugs "She is a good person, he might trick her into doing something dumb but she isn't evil… you know." she looks at Arkham.

-

"Evil is often a matter of degrees. I'm not worried about her corruption so much as I'm worried about her getting tangled up in something that won't leave her any options." Fenris shrugs. "Or alienate her friends. But… that's her choice, sadly."5r

-

Misfit nods "I'm afraid of that too. It seems to be spazzing Titans out about it and ..well I guess I may try to talk to her about it." she scuffs her foot but not your ward and then looks to you. "I want to learn more about magic."

-

Fenris quirks an eyebrow and folds his arms. "Magic. Learn about it or learn it? There's a difference." He can do both. Or reccommend good substitutes. Either way, really. "Seems you had some additional exposure recently. You smell a bit demonic. Rather familiar I shoudl say."

-

Misfit pauses and lifts an arm and snuffs her sleeve then wrinkles her nose. She kind of smells like Hydra too. "Uhn.. yeah some sort of stepping portal thing landed a bunch of us in Limbo randomly and that Aspect guy was gardening… then a small demon took us to Ice Cream in New York and Illyana joined us, she seems to know a lot of magic…" she trails off "I want to know more and learn some too."

-

The one name means nothing to Fenris but the other? "Ah yes. Illyana. The Darkchilde. She's an ally. Perhaps a friend. And she does know a great deal of magic. More than anyone you are likely to meet who has not had as long as I to study it." He is, after all, quite old. "How did she take to you?"

-

Misfit considers that "She said I glow a lot.. or light a lot.. or something like that. She seemed impressed with the bouncing I guess… " she sighs "The Limbo place is a all sorts of wiggy… feels wrong… also like it is huge…. but a rolled up snowglobe all at the same time. Not like a real place."

-

"More real than many places. Limbo touches everywhere and everywhen at once. And is as big as it needs to be. It is one of the stranger places you can find, though." Fenris shrugs. "Yes, your innate talent is qutie strong. That's why you can teleport without being having to know any magic. And it makes sense that Limbo would affect you strongly, and quickly. It'd probably alter you if you stayed too long."

-

Misfit mutters "It still felt like a snow globe all shook up…" that might be because it is technically a pocket dimension not a true world. "Uhm… what do you mean alter me. There ain't no one like me but me."

-

"Limbo, and most demonic realms, corrupt and alter those who spend long amounts of time in them. How long it takes varies and what form it takes varies, but it always happens sooner or later. With your magical sensitivity, it would probably be sooner." Fenris seems sure of that and it may give Misfit something to think on considering who was there when she arrived.

-

Misfit considers "But Illyana is on the X-Men Red team and a superhero… why would her or Aspect choose to spend time around demons and in a demonic realm like that?"

-

"Illyana is the Queen of a Hell Realm. She rules the demons there both as sovreign and jailor. It is because of her that they do not roam free and also because of her that worse things from beyond Limbo do not come here. She spends time there because she must to secure her rule and because I suspect, it is her home. If she has someone else there, I cannot say why they would do so but if they're there willingly it must be connected to her." And he has no doubt that it's willingly. The Old Wolf feels confident in his assessment of the Darkchilde that she would not keep a captive like that.

-

Misfit walks to the edge of the roof "Right… Im not sure I would work well in hell.. Misfit.. in heeeelll…. hm nope…." she looks at you "Can you teach me about magic..and some magic?"

-

"I can yes, if you're willing to learn. I think it's probably pretty important that you at least learn the basics." The Old Wolf hasn't taught anyone in…. many a year. So this should be interesting.

-

Misfit nods "I think it is probably for the best if what I do is magic… I mean Vorpal says it is chaos magic and you are like Asgardian.. but … the basics .. I keep running into magic and monsters that are magic… its super annoying when all you got is the ability to punch them."

-

"Well in that case we shall see what can be done about teaching you." The old wolf rumbles with a grin. "When were you thinking on starting? These things take time and while I'm not about to whisk you away for 'intensive training' practice does tend to make perfect. Or at least make for a mage that won't blow herself up."

-

Misfit considers this "Well.. I don't think whisking is good. I mean Oracle needs me and so does Gotham." she looks out at Arkham "Especially with crap like this you know…. but I think I should start as soon as possible. I patrol at nights but I don't have school. Really this is more important than school. You are helping me though, so what would you like to do Ur-Wolf."

-

"We'll want to see what you have a natural… affinity for." Fenris muses. "And I have the thing for that… or had it. I'll have to go dig it up." Fenris has hidden a lot over the years. Lots of magic, lots of artifacts and power. He can get them, he just needs to… remember where they are.

-

Misfit seems her normal high levels of excited and enthustiastic about this prospect "Is it something like a Sorting Hat?" she pauses "I think I am probably a Gryphonpuff if I had to guess…. " then she perks "What is it.. I bet I could find it."

-

Fenris chuckles. "Not quite. Things react in the presence of certain magic. A set of crystals from old Egypt. I hid them away in a place that is not a place. Well, one of them. I'll have to go looking around for it. But I'll find it in a day or so, no worries."

-

Misfit mmmms "That doesn't sound like an adventure.. well a place that is not a place sounds like an adventure." she tilt her head considering "I'd definitely like to learn how to enchant my batarangs and gloves so when I punch werewolves they don't just shake it off like it aint no thing… or other monsters of magoc. I definitely do not want to have to ever bounce a Hydra again… I'd rather not kill them."

-

"Mmmmmmmmm… well Hydra are difficult ones. If you can't tame them or simply over power them they do tend to eat everything in sight. But I can teach you enchanting if you turn out to have the faculty for it. We'll start with the tests. Don't worry. I think you'll find them suitably… adventurous."

-

Misfit grins "Awesome." yeah of course she thinks this is awesome. She twirls away from the edge of the building her cape flaring out now and then she grins over to you "So a couple days and we start the training?"

-

"I think so. I'll come find you, don't worry." The Great Wolf winks. "I have your scent. It won't be hard." Which… might be worrying on some levels actually.

-

Then again Misfit seems to be about to 'bounce' to anyone, anywhere, anytime, without strain. So she doesn't really process that statement the same way as others might. "Great! I will let Lady B know we might have company at dinner with very little warning then.. have you met Lady B, she is really nice."

-

"You do that. I try not to show up unannounced but sometimes needs must." Fenris looks about. "I do believe I'm done here. Will you be coming along or do you have more patrolling to do?"

-

Misfit looks at Arkham and squints "I should probably finish the patrol I was on, I will look for you once you get your magic crystals and we can get rolling." she sounds thrilled, like teenage girl thrilled about a rockstar. No squeein or passing out though, or swooning even a little. Just thrilled.

You'll see me soon." Fenris winks and tosses his hand out to tear open a way, which he does soundlessly as ever. There's a flash of white as he steps though and then he's gone without a trace.
