Your best friend's name?
Hermione continued to give him a blank look.
Hermione continued to give her a blank look.
Hermione continued to give her a blank look.
Hermione continued to give her a blank look.
You don't even know your own name?
Hermione Russo: Wait! Wait! I know this one! It's Osmosis Jones right?
- Who thought her kind could be so smart?
- Delphine Curry:Mind if I sit here?
My purse is worth more than your life. Go find another seat.
- Hila/Siren:You dare defy your mother?!
Delphine Curry: No, I defy Siren. My own mother died years ago!
- Zak Saturday: Well, Dolye, I hope you like hairy women? Because if you do, then she's your type.
- Zak Saturday:Now that is one of the few places a woman should not have hair in!
What are you even doing here?
Arthur Curry/Aquaman:...I don't know...
The Phoenix Defenders just stared at him in confusion.
Arthur Curry/Aquaman:Please let me join you guys?
Delphine Curry:Get out!
- Could you stop beating Whirlpool up already?!
But sir, she was harassing me?
With what a fish?!
...Well..truth to be told...yes. Yes she was. Besides, I was just trying to protect myself.
I'm serious. I mean,
Don't forget about the fact that fishes can also have diseases and parasites.
- Drew Saturday:You're father...is Van Rook?!
Doc Saturday:This...Whole time, your dad is...Leonidas Van Rook?
Doyle Blackwell:But...How can that be? He never said anything about having a kid.
Skye Rowen: That's because he kept me a secret. He only wanted to protect me from those who wanted to use me for their own advantages against him.
- Acantha McCord:Lyn, do me a favor and go eat a poison root.
Lyn Manchester: I made no promises!
- Skye Rowan:This is Stormy! He's my pet...i've had him since my powers kicked in. Nyoka dared me to try taming a cloud, and after i did, this little guy decided to like me so much that he wouldn't go back home. He decided to live with me! (hugging her pet again, Stormy made a contented sound much like a cat's purr. Skye then glanced up at Zak) I left him behind in Canada because i wasn't sure if he'd be safe here... Guess it's okay if i keep him, huh?
- Saya Sato:Speaking from the girl who has the same superpowers as a carpet. So does that make you Carpet Woman? Or maybe the Magic Carpet with legs?
Lyn Manchester: I know where you're going with this and it's not happening. You're inexperienced in fighting
Tora Neal: In other words, Lyn would rather lose to villains than be humiliated when you screw up!
Tora Neal: Touche.
- Saya Sato:(shouted excitedly)Yes! I have friends in this class! Now i don't have to be all awkward and alone!
- Saya Sato/Velocity:(shouted) What the heck was that?
Mallory walks towards Saya and whispers something to her, and gesticulating toward something on the road before disappearing.
Saya Sato/Velocity: (shouted angrily)You have got to be kidding me, i tripped over a speed bump?! What kind of idiot decided to stuck a speed bump in the street?!
- Tora Stone: What? Can't a girl laugh?
Virgil Hawkins: A girl can, but you can't!
- Donovan Sanders:(screams)AAAAHHHHH! SOMEONE SAVE THE BLACK MAN!
- Berna Manchester: Hey Seraph!
Seraph turned around, eyes wide with surprise but Ne quickly put on a cool mask.
Seraph Hernandez:(scoffed) Screw off!
- Crispin Rivers:Do you do that all the time?
Tora Neal:(coldly) When people get too close, they get hurt. It's how it works.
- Beatrix Manchester: I guess you could call him a bad person. But not when you girls were around! He wasn't bad around us! Never!
Aeolus Rowan:YOU KNOW WHAT MR. STEPS! I WILL GET YOU! SERIOUSLY! WATCH OUT! I'LL CURSE YOU FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE! YOU AND YOUR EVIL SPAWNS WILL FEEL MY WRATH! THIS HOUSE WILL AS WELL! MR. HOUSE, I'M COMING FOR YOU! BRING IT ON! I DON'T NEED YOUR SASS! WHAT WAS THAT? YOUR SHAKING IN YOUR RUSTY OLD TERRAIN OR WHATEVER? YEAH! THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT!
The screen then focused on Skye who is just staring down at him with a deadpan expression then turned to face the audience.
Skye Rowan: Let's just say the psychiatrist was busy for the next 2 weeks.here?!
Takashi Yamamoto:(sarcastically)Wow, you are the hero for crazy girls with febreze.
- Skye Rowan: Hey look, everything is going to be okay tomorrow. Just wait and see, things might turn out-
Katherine:I can't be bothered to go to prom...no guy had asked me out and i'm going to my cat's funeral. Don't feel sorry for me because the cat was fat and useless anyway. So stop talking to me, you ugly dude.
- Mr. Johnson: Okay brats, because you two have been so quiet during detention, i will let you both go early...I know you need to get home and get ready for prom tomorrow night not why i'm letting you both go. Don't make me give you another detention after this again. Do you both understand.
- Lyn jumps
Lyn Manchester:AHHYYYYAAAA! (throws a ball of duct tape at her)
OW! WHAT THE HECK WAS THAT?!...is that duct tape?
How did you get that?
Lyn Manchester:Oh, well Mr.Tatum told me to put some stuff up, then he said 'take it down maggot!' and i said 'God man, make up your mind!' so i took it down and rolled it up into a ball.
...you really are crazy...
Tora Neal:Let me out! Dad, you better let me out right now or you will regret it!
Tora, in case you have forgotten, your cell is padded with a static and soundproof lining. You will not be able to shock anyone whilst you are in there.
Tora Neal:When can I leave?!
That is of no importance as of now.
Tora Neal:I am not a lab rat you can experiment on! WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE, DAD?!
You are my chess piece now; I can do whatever I want with you. Good day, daughter.
Good morning, pretty lady.
Don't try and speak. We have a few tests to do carry out this morning. As you said before, you are our lab rat. Now you just lay back and relax. Imagine you are at the spa. A pretty thing like that can do that can you? stroked Tora's hair out of her face. Tora glared at the man and her eyes glowed white in rage as the man wiggled his gloved fingers in front of her face.
I wouldn't do that if I were you, Sparky. Now, be still for one moment would you, I just need to give you a shot.
The man took out a large syringe gun and placed it to Tora's neck and pulled the trigger. Tora screamed in agony as the man started to chuckle at her reaction.
Tora Neal:I am going to get out of here and when I do, you better start hiding!
- Tora Neal:I wasn't even a day old when i killed my mother-she never even got to hold me. While she was pregnant with me, she was having major fits and by the time she gave birth to me, she no longer had the strength to fight, She had a heart attack and died because of my static- her heart just couldn't take it and i killed her. My father hated me for killing my mother and took his rage on me with his tests. My powers got more and more unstable as the tests went on, the human body is not supposed to deal with that much static so it sent my powers into maximum overdrive. who has ever been able to come close to me and was one of the only two people who has ever cared about me. I had spend a majority of my years in a glass room and men in shock proof suits and water guns would go in and care for me...i was treated and watched like a lab rat as they dubbed me as Project X. I wanted them to leave me alone but they always keep punishing me for no reason.
It's a project my dad was working on to study the effect of electrotherapy on humans.
Tora Neal: Sometimes, I believe I came from a family of metahumans.
But what about your brother? Wouldn't he have contracted some sort of meta-human powers, too?
Tora Neal:I don't know. He never did weird things like they did...like i did. As far as i know, he was perfectly normal, just like... well, almost all of you.
Tora snapped her eyes open to see that Acantha had knelt down next to her and was prodding her in the face with a pencil.
Acantha McCord:Buzz, buzz! Anyone in there? (stood up and walks away)Come on sleepyhead, we gotta go.
- Commissioner James Gordon: Young lady, Why were you stealing a $942 jacket?
Tora Neal: Because I need it to keep myself warm at night?
Commissioner James Gordon: Why didn't you pay for it?
Tora Neal:Because i had no money.
Commissioner James Gordon:Where are your parents?
Tora Neal: I don't have any.
Commissioner James Gordon:What's your name?
Tora Neal:... I don't know.
Commissioner James Gordon:Don't you dare lie to me! Do you know any of the consequences of stealing or robbing?
Tora shakes her head.
Commissioner James Gordon: No? Well, then let me tell you. It's not pretty, especially for a kid like you. You will be staying at a jail cell for the night then you will be going to an orphanage tomorrow. Understand?
- Is this a joke?
Scarecrow:No, that's the other guy.
Other guy? What other guy? There's two of you?
Scarecrow:Two of me? No, that's another other guy.
Another other guy? Can you stop talking in riddles?
Scarecrow:Riddles? That's another other, other guy.
… I'm confused now. Is this supposed to scare me or something?
Scarecrow:Yes! Scare you! Finally, you get it. That's my thing!
You scare me? Ha! This has to be a joke?
Scarecrow: Do I look like the Joker too you? But this isn't a joke, I assume you. If you want a joke, go watch The Last Airbender.
NO! NO! GET AWAY FROM ME! GET AWAY!
- Apollo McGuire: Oh and Apollo?
Apollo McGuire: Yeah, Mallory. (turns around to see Mallory wearing a tribal mask)
Mallory Black: BOOGA BOOGA BOOGA!
Apollo McGuire: (screams)AAAAAAAAUGGGGGGGHHHH! (ran away)
Mallory lift the mask and laugh, causing Skye to pull out a rolling pin and smack her with it.
Mallory Black: OW! WHAT DID I DO?
- Berna Manchester: I'm a Phoenix Defender now, so you should just accept it because my friends did and that's what made me into who I am now.
- Lyn Manchester: Are you blushing?
Delphine Isley: Jealous?
- Tora Neal: DO I LOOK LIKE A STRAY DOG TO YOU?!
- Francis Stone:Didn't i teach you how to fight when we were kids?! Besides, why don't you use your powers?
Francis Stone: Did you even know how to control your powers?
Tora shook her head with a disappointed look on her face.
Tora Neal:I have some but not fully control over it.
Ben,Will you please stop telling people i'm dead.
Well, you're dead to me!
They were just chili fries. Ben, be a man and let it go.
Let it go! Let it go! anymore
NOW ISN'T THE GOOD TIME
The fries weren't yours in the first place.
They might as well be mine since i was the one who had paid for the fries in the first place.
THE FRIES WERE'N'T YOURS!
Do you know this kid?
Malone:Of course I would know who my own son is!
Aeolus Rowan: Dad...I'm bisexual.
Kadeem Drakos: I know and so am I.
Kadeem Drakos: Your mother may have sent me some interesting information to me for sometime now.
Aeolus Rowan:..so...you're not mad at me?
Kadeem Drakos: Why would I be mad at you? I'm thrilled.
Aeolus Rowan:...You are?
Kadeem Drakos: You have no idea. What made you think that i would be mad at my own son?
Aeolus Rowan: You're the only father I have and I just didn't want my sexuality to get in the way. Skye and everybody else had told me that not every single being accepts the gay community and judges them based on who they love and who they identify.
Kadeem Drakos: Aeolus, It doesn't matter to be whether you're bisexual, gay, straight, transgender, nonbinary, a cryptid, an alien, or a metahuman. What matters is that you're my son and I will always love you for who you are. I believe that humanity is about who we bring ourselves to love someone else, no matter what color, no matter what race, no matter what religion, and no matter what gender. If humanity doesn't accept that, then it is their loss.
Aeolus Rowan:So Dad... Did you just say that you're bi.
Kadeem Drakos:Pretty much. After all, I'm only attracted to both men and nonbinary individuals. I remember when I was only nineteen, I was in a similar situation as you were. I was scared of what everyone might say, think, and do.
