A Joke That Set The World Crying

Chapter Text

( I started a joke that started the whole world crying)

Singularity was bored. It was a living universe and it was traveling through different universes when it had gotten a whim. The whim came as it watched what it knew to be another version of Anthony Edward Stark dying in a metal suit in some stone like structure. Singularity had seen many broken and fractured humans, both on the different spectrums that was good and evil.

'to see those shades of grey, i wonder would there be a divide between such extremes if the pieces could be put together to make a whole' It wondered.

The thought had merit and Singularity wanted to know and to see, It wanted to know and figured the experiment would be worthy enough to distract it from it's boredom. It truly was easy to link the universes together. Singularity smiled as it thought itself so clever.

(but i didn't see that the joke was one me)


---John Allerdyce---

John could remember living two lives once upon a time. He could remember a time were he was an angry mutant who could psionically control fire, but he could also remember a time growing up in Australia alone with no one but his grandmother as someone to show him love. John did know that both lives were filled with pain and loss. St.John knew he was Pyro and Pyro had lots of issues he really needed to work through. Pyro looked at Prof.X and couldn't help his sneer as the man looked at him with patience like he was some fragile porcelain thing.

"I'm not trying to be condecending John, but your control has been slipping and has been affecting the other students." Charles said sternley. He wanted to help the boy who lived in a time that was but wasnt and his own now. The young man was floundering for purchase in this world and Charles heart went out to him. but his abilities were becoming dangerous.

"I'm not trying to hurt anyone. Icemans little dreams are just him living a life he would have anyways. And im not a magic expert, Jubes said she understood so back off!" the angry aussie snarled. The Goblin forced swirled around him as he turned and left the telepaths office. Charles sighed as he thought about the damaged young man and probed for Jean to keep an eye on John. The young omega level mutant responded well to her.

Later that night Charles woke when he felt a psionic shout throughout the mansion and as he struggled into his chair his door opened and Jean was there clutching her head a fiery corona around her.

"some is trying to take Pyro, the Goblin Force is fighting it but the Goblin Entity isn't. Professor he is gonna hurt someone!" she shouted over the defining psionic high pitched whine. Charles went to talk but just a quickly as it happened its stopped and when Xavier blinked Jean was gone as was many minds in the mansion. Charles wheeled as quick as he could, He needed Cerebro and he needed help.

"What has happened?" he said aloud 'And did you know about it?" he thought along the traces of the astral plane to one former pyrokinetic turned psychokinetic.
