Fenris the God-Wolf is, honestly, tired of having to take care of things by himself.

Okay, that's a bit unfair. Other mages do pitch in quite a bit when they're aware of a problem but the fact is many of the more powerful ones are quite busy handling problems of their own. It was for this reason that he and an old friend decided to reform the ancient conclave of warriors that has, for many long ages, watched over the magic of the world and the people who depend on it. These people don't even have to be magical, just heroes.

All though all three of these are. Misfit was given her Pendulum last night, but Fenris has decided to approach Zatanna Zatara and Jesana Ravae about taking on this responsibility as well and has invited them to meet him in Bronx Park.

***

Jes likes the park. It's totally tame compared to what she's used to, but it's still nice. Lots of trees and grass at least. The animals here are fat, slow, and taste terrible. It's still pretty though and quieter than the city. She also like Zee, and Fenris. A lot. So despite not knowing whats going on she was quite happy to be invited and is almost bounding down the path. Okay maybe she is bounding a little bit, but she doesn't get too far ahead before returning to Zee's side each time she realizes.

***

Charlie, not Misfit because well public park and all that business, is sitting on a nearby Rock eating some cotton candy. "Man I love the Zoo. Sure it is a bit wintery for dipping dots… but cotton candy is a year round snack. Also I think Shelby the snow leopard really appreciates the snow storm personally. I think Snow leopards prefer snow year round… you know." she has on jeans, converse looking sneakers with chibi pokemon on them, a baby doll t-shirt that says 'I don't get older I level up' with an experience bar, and a snazzy new leather jacket.

***

Zee walks briskly along, following Jes and smiling as Jes bounces along and returns to her. Dressed in a short dress, stocking, high heel knee high boots and a bomber jacket, Zee still wears the diamond encrusted collar. Rounding the bend in the path, Zee spots Charlie sitting on the Rock and waves. "Nearly there Jes, you can go on ahead if you like…"

***

Jes had stopped abrubtly at Charlie's voice. She looks over with an aghast expression. "The zoo? You..you went to the zoo?" She's been to this park nearly every other day since coming to the city but has carefully avoided the zoo, for what are probably obvious reasons.

***

Fenris chuckles as Charlie… well, she rambles. That's what she's doing. But he doesn't mind. He's alone often traveling or working or doing magic anyway. He catches Jesana and Zee's scent on the wind before he sees them. "Ah, excellent. They're here." He hopes they don't have a repeato f the other night.

***

Charlie has no idea what Fenris may be worried about happening, no sir, no sireee. Newp. When she spots Jes and Zee she smiles and waves. Then blinks hand falling at the expression from Jes "Well.. um… yes. They are the closest place that has cotton candy…" she pulls off a tuft and offers it to Jes "Want some?"

***

Seeing Fenris, Zee smiles brightly as she follows her friend the them… "See Jes, she only goes to the cotton candy" Zee speaks quietly. "Hey there, Misfit" Zee turns her attention to the chaos muppet briefly before looking over to Fenris "You rang?" or texted or something…

***

Looking abash Jes ducks her head. "Sorry." She eyes the candy and then blinks a bit. "…Are you..eating insulation?" Then the wind shift and she catches the scent of sugar on the air. It's sugar? She looks at it with even more bemusement.

***

Fenris chuckles. "I did, yes. Hello Zee, and Jesana. You both know Charlie here, I believe." Fenris gestures to the cotton candied redhead. "I've called you here to ask for your help with something. Charlie can explain it a bit, since I asked for her help last night." He grins. "And then I'll answer questions of course."

***

Charlie waves the chunk of cotton candy to Jes with a laugh. "No… not insulation.. candy. Try some. Because damn girl if you haven't ever had any you need to eat it." she continues to offer it out to Jes. "Oh.. hey.. right.. um… I'll totes explain it." she pauses a moment. "Well the world is a big fragile planet and there be a whole lot of it. It is also covered in Ley Lines.. which for the record traveling through on accident is totally like being shoved into an industrial dryer on the spin cycle…" why would she even know this. "So yeah Fenris is looking for guardians to help protect the planet against magical problems and threats and to be first responders for that."

***

Smiling reassuringly at her friend, Zee cants her head to the cotton candy "You should try some, it is quite literally spun sugar…" Zee will take a piece if Misfit lets her.

Nodding along to the explanation, Zee cuts a look towards Fenris "This the enclave type thing, you mentioned the last time we met?"

***

After Zee's reassurance Jes takes the chunk of candy Charlie's holding in front of her face. Hesitantly she touches the stuff to her tongue, or at least she tries to. It promptly melts away, and the little that is left hardens on her fingers. Jes gasps a bit and takes a step backwards. She frantically licks the roof of her mouth as if trying to figure out where the candy went. Her eyes widen and she stares at the sticky mess left on her fingers in total surprise. It's not clear how much if any of the explanation she actually heard.

***

Fenris just… chuckles. Jes is a lot like a puppy. Well, they all are, but Jes is in particular. "Yes, Zee. This is." Fenris produces two things that look like dowsing Pendulums. One of them has a smokey quartz on the end, the other what might be an emerald. Both are sway for a moment and point right at the other two women. "Well, they appear to like you, so that's good. What about it. Jes? Zee? Will you join Charlie here? I'll be talking to some others but this will at least be a good group to start with."

***

Charlie of course shares her cotton candy with Zee. Then she grins watching Jes deal with the sugar. "It .. is spun sugar. It melts in your mouth and tastes good… just lick your fingers clean an all." she grins shaking her head and eats another piece herself demonstrating. "We totes need a name for magic saving…. and a battle cry." she is still trying to get the Titans to get a battle cry.

***

Zee demonstrates as she eats the cotton candy, licking her her fingers clean as she listens to Fenris. Canting her head as the Pendulums are produced, she smiles as they swing towards them. "Did you even have to ask, Fenris? Yes, I will."

***

Jes looks up after licking her fingers. Her head cants to the side as she studies the rods with a thoughtful expression. After a moment she looks up at the sky, watching as the clouds part to show a sliver of moon. Jes blinks and straightens. "Yes." She answers, her eyes still on the sky. It almost seems as if she's answering someone or something else. But then she shakes herself and looks back at Fenris. "I'll help."

***

"Wonderful." Fenris hands both women their Ley Pendulums. "Those pendulums allow for teleportation and communication across the ley line network. It's not quite as extensive as Misfit's ability to bounce, but it gets you a lot of places and it's hard to screen out. They will also allow you to communicate along the network. My ears are pretty good so you won't have any problems reaching me if you need help. You'll all meet Nommo later. He's one of the people who has been doing this with me for a long time. And I'm considering bringing in someone else with a vested interest to advise and support."

The Old Wolf smiles and leans back. "The Pendulums will also enhance your natural abilities in times of great need. When the world needs it, you'll be able to perform at far beyond your normal limits. Long term bearers have sometimes developed other abilities." He shrugs. "I'll teach you how to use them. It's not hard. Know there will be others. Ten is the most we've ever had in this group. I can think of a few others who might be useful and I shall be approaching them as well."

***

Well when Fenris leans against the Rock she is perching on there, she reaches and ruffles his woofy hair. No respect evidently. "Cool. Nommo… that sounds like a James Bond villain really." she reaches into her pocket and tries it out though. Thinking at Zee loudly <HEY ZEE CAN YOU HEAR ME?> and someone thought this was a good idea.

***

Taking the pendulum from Fenris, Zee smiles delightedly at Jes and Misfit. Fenris' words have Zee canting her head again "That… enhancing natural abilities …. might be interesting. And thank you, Fenris, for the trust." she murmurs.

Misfits thinking at her causes a slight start but the Mistress of Magic looks over to the chaos muppet and thinks back, not quite as loudly ~~ Of course I can here you… ~~.

Repeating the test to Jesana, Zee focusses on the young woman and thinks ~~ So what was it you wanted to tell me? ~~

***

Jes glances at Zee with a startled expression. -I..oh it's a long story Zee, and not a good one. After this, I promise.- She tucks the pendulam very carefully into her inner jacket pocket. "I swear, I'll do my very best." She says to Fenris.

***

The key to the communication is 'along the ley line network.' Part of the reason Fenris chose this park to meet in was because a Ley Line passes through it. There are quite a few, big and small. They don't go everywhere, but they do go a lot of places. "Like all magic the communication and teleportation work off will and intent. And the further away you are from a ley line, the weaker the communication is. If you're close enough, though, you won't need them. The sympathetic magic of the pendulums itself will allow you reach any other bearer with a thought." Close enough is probably a few miles. Ten, twenty. Something like that. Not far in the grand scheme of things. But far enough to allow for a 'tether.'

"I know you'll all do your best. Since you all know eachother I wanted you to know you were all in this together. The things we will be facing will require a certain amount of being willing to call for help when they get too big. That's made easier when you trust the people you're calling. So consider yourselves my first 'team'." First only because he hasn't approached the others yet.

***

That gets a grin from Charlie and she takes another bite of cotton candy. "Cool sauce. Also I meant it.. we need like a team name. I've been having a ton of trouble thinking of a good name for a team involving Ley Lines…."

***

Jes gets a small, reassuring smile "Was just testing it, Jes. I trust you and you'll tell me when you're ready." Zee seems very interested in Fenris' explanation, listening intently and looking at the Pendulum in her hand and then back again. Misfits question about a team name gets a raised eyebrow "Well, that might be something we can do another time…"

***

Jes shakes her head a bit at Misfit. This is definitely going to take some getting used to. Seriously. "What kind of things are we going to be facing?" The coyote looks back at Fenris. "The HYDRA? Or something to do with that..prison gate thing?"

***

"Anything that threatens the world or it's magic." Fenris rises. "I need to be getting back to several tasks. The scope of what we face will become clear in time. For now, thank you. And I'll be seeing you soon."
