you hold on and let go

It's 2015, and in the three years since the Battle of Manhattan, the world has in some ways changed beyond recognition, and in others remained tragically the same. Two more incursions – one by Dark Elves and another by Frost Giants – have been narrowly beaten back, and people are on edge. What else is out there? When will the next invasion come? Can Earth survive?

Worse than the fear of attack from without, though, is the fear of the 'enemy' within. The existence of superhumans – once largely the province of late-night radio shows, secretive government agencies, and obscure internet message boards – has gone from under-the-radar to in-your-face. Attacks by mutant terrorists have increased sharply in both frequency and severity. Nation after nation worldwide has passed laws targeting metas, restricting their rights in the name of public safety.

For years the United States was the last major hold out against the tide, but the tragic deaths of almost two dozen school children at the hands of an explosive mutant sparked popular outrage that was fanned by the media into a political firestorm. The result was the recent passage of the Superhuman Registration Act. Now positions are hardening, partisans are growing ever more strident, violence is flaring and the country is spiraling slowly but inevitably toward a civil war.

It's A Magical Place

TAHITI

Character: Phil Coulson
Place: Anywhere with beds, non-specific, probably a SHIELD base
Suitable for: Anyone, really, but preferably someone that he would be comfortable being around while he's in his pyjamas (or shorts and a Captain America t-shirt as he is at the moment), and probably a SHIELD agent, if not someone who knows about SHIELD and knows he's alive, otherwise it could be a bit of a shock xD
Blurb: Having had a nightmare about Tahiti, Phil can't get back to sleep (naturally) and goes wandering, and finds a book and settles down until it becomes more of a reasonable hour for other residents of the unspecified-place-with-beds-that's-probably-a-SHIELD-base (e.g. the sun is up)

Moonlit Encounter

Would like to try and kick this one back to life, if there are any takers... allies of chance must face the fury of lost yet still quite lethal alien bio-technology. Mostly an eerie encounter/action thread -- but still much room for character interaction and RP work. (I'm always into that...)

Suitable For: Any character that would be walking around Stark's tech Expo
