    Summary

    “I’ve got a place in Rochester,” says Cable, too casually to be casual.

    Look, he's no innocent. He might be as thick as two bricks on a lot of things, but Frank knows a weak excuse for a hookup when he sees it. Cable's got some fancy teleportation bullshit that can take them from one side of the globe to the other in a heartbeat, yet here he is making a show of looking at his watch and asking if Frank would be alright with laying low and staying close to pick off the kind of bottom-feeder that Frank cleans up by the dozen, if not by the hundreds.

    Cable is eyeing him like a piece of prime filet, his interest rolling off him in waves. It’s not unmatched, not by a long shot, but some things are better played close to his chest.

    “Weak excuse,” he tells Cable, but slings his bag over his shoulder and scouts the rooftop for anything they’ve left behind. Then there’s cold white light and a pain in his ears, and they’re gone.

    Summary

    Most people get their pain receptors turned off, and that's it. Nothing else. They don't - can't - feel anything. Total anaesthetic. But sometimes people's brains are unpredictable, or they're just too accustomed to physically hurting. There's no shutting off the pain so they turn it into something else.

    Summary

    As a rule Frank isn't accustomed to mixing business and pleasure. He shows up, he sends scumbags and shitkickers to a hotter place, he splits before the cops show up and he has to watch them strain their brains through an ethical dilemma over cuffing him. He doesn't linger afterwards. No point to it.

    Hanging around above three stories of wasted geeks, even if it's on the flat roof of a nondescript rural warehouse on a nice summer night, is absolutely not his style. Getting his dick sucked above the savagery that he's just enacted is so out of his scope of experience it almost - almost - makes him feel like a fumbling virgin.

    Summary

    Frank paces out his beer and avoids looking at his watch, trying to delay his irritation for as long as possible. Late. For a guy who supposedly time travels as a job, Cable is goddamn terrible at showing up on time.

    Summary

    What makes you alive? What makes you human? What makes you - you?
    These are the questions all of them have been asking themselves. There is a man of faith, there is a man of power, there is a man who volunteered, and there is a girl who struggles to survive, all connected together.

    Oh, and there's a certain wild card mercenary, too.

    Summary

    X-Force is finally up and kicking butt like a family should. But what is this? Cable has de-aged to 6 years old? And now the X-Men are getting involved? How the hell is a Time Travelling bad-ass like Cable even connected to the X-Men?

    The X-Force and the X-Men will need to work together (much to Logan's annoyance) but there is someone else out there with their eyes on a young Cable. Can the teams join forces and protect him from a Sinister presence hunting him or will two families be torn apart.

    Summary

    Marian met Cable as one of the two surviving applicants for X-Force. His cold mannerism and treatment of everyone in his surroundings was enough to keep her at a distance until one day he confides in her that he needs a place to stay. Sharing a flat with someone as taciturn as him was bound to be easy; no interaction, no awkward conversations, no pretending to like each other, just silence. Everything seemed to work perfectly for the both of them until they realized that some odd ebullition of emotion had thwarted their plan of remaining so devoid of one another's attention.
