[ oh it's this chick again says the attached name.

anyways, the video starts off and there's a figure. the area she's standing in is dark, like an alleyway. there's a face and that face is -- gasp!! grey!! it's a troll with massive black hair and spider teeth and she looks very very confused. and upset. and squinty. in fact, that troll seems familiar because!!

it's jess. as a troll. troll jess. surprise worst climax.

she's been avoiding the network since she got back to the city, not even returning home, but she figures. well. let's show this embarrassment to everyone. jess hesitates before opening her mouth to talk, large spider-like fangs portruding. and then she closes her mouth again. opens. and finally:

So. Uh. This happened.

[ the end. ]

[ this is a video. it's a video of jessica drew laying down in what's obviously a bathtub. she's laying down with her head resting against the back of the bathtub. there's no sound to the video as she does a shaky breath, gaze moving to the side off camera before returning to the video.

also her hair is in a giant fancy beehive with glittery spiders clipped into it.

text follows this video as her gaze constantly moves off camera, the video shaking a little bit in her grip.

so I've been hearing that the only escape is death.

[ the video clicks on and there's a familiar face!! contrary to previous posts from like, eight months ago, jess' face is actually seen here, in all of its glory. for the first time on the network. her hair is as massive as ever (in fact, it seems to have gotten bigger), and her face probably seems really weird-looking. (oh peter face.)

regardless, she rubs her face, looking very annoyed. she's decked out in dumb hipster clothes (probably raided good will when she first got here) and her hand slides from her face up to her hair line, pushing her hair back. and she starts, queens accent still prominent:

An ode to being dropped back into this hellhole.

No. No. No. Nope. Nada. Nein. Absolutely not. Nyet. Non.

[ she pauses. ]

Oh, and why.

[ sent from the Jess Drew comm. enjoy this video of her red converse.

anyways, Jess' voice is heard off-camera and it sounds a little strained, her definitely trying to sound like she's not upset.

So, Mary Jane Watson got sent home. I mean, I think. She's kind of inexplicably gone and all of her stuff is still here. [ her tone shakes but she ignores it ]

So that's -- what -- three people from the same universe within a few weeks. Johnny Storm, Gwen Stacy, and Mary Jane Watson. Is that weird? It seems a little weird. [ her tone rushes at this and she abruptly pauses ]

Or maybe it's just some giant -- like, government conspiracy. Actually, I think that's worse.

Never -- nevermind. [ and then a beat ] Has this ever happened before? So many people from the same place going back at once. Because it kind of sucks. Seriously. Thanks, God.

[ and then she hangs up. ]

[ the video feed (a la Jessica Drew comm) clatters to a start, filming a flash of her face with wet hair plastered against it and doubled over body before she shoves the camera aside. it moves to focus on her dripping wet legs and red Converse and stays there, as water pools around her. she's coughing and muttering under her breath before finally: ]

Just in case you were wondering, the Hudson River tastes as nasty as it looks. Ugh, I'm going to be washing this smell out of my hair for weeks.

[ she kicks the comm further away but it catches a glimpse of her beginning to wring out her clothes before pointing up at the cityline above her head ]

So apparently, I'm not lucky enough to get sent home though. Just lose weeks out of my life that I could have been using to do something important. [ she sounds extremely frustrated and the dripping continues before: ]

So. Who wants to fill me in?

[ well good evening everyone, it’s your friendly neighborhood spider-woman, accompanied by the human torch, both in costume, johnny wearing his fantastic four suit, and jess in her mask. game faces are on. this is a serious post, you guys. ]

Hey, so I guess you all noticed that Reed Richards just showed up. But he’s not the Reed you guys know, you should know that.

[ there’s a pause and johnny darts a glance at jess before he continues. ]

He’s not a good guy. He went really, really crazy and faked his own death and then blew up a lot buildings. And--

[ there’s little tendrils of flame licking up johnny’s body because he’s getting angry. this time when he looks over at jess, it’s for help. because shouting over the network isn’t going to convince anyone. be the level-headed one, jess.

she speaks up after a moment, her voice slow and careful, trying to be as calm as possible]

Reed Richards is a terrorist and a murderer. He’s a criminal. He’s currently wanted by SHIELD and the government, for destroying various buildings of importance, such as the Baxter building, Triskelion, Roxxon buildings, and various homes of innocent families, including his own. He has killed thousands of people because of this. He is a psychopath with no regard for human life, going so far to even destroy Asgard and creating an entire civilization dedicated to conquering human life and mind-controlling children for his own agenda.

He will manipulate you and lie to you to get what he wants. He’s pretending like he’s innocent -- like we’re the crazy ones, but I was there when he destroyed Roxxon. We were there when he attempted to ruin the Earth in the Negative Zone.

Reed Richards is a danger to everyone and should not be trusted.

[ there’s a pause. johnny’s still half on fire, expression considering before he shrugs. ]

Yeah, what she said.

[ and then he turns off the camera. ]

ooc | the red text is jessica drew! and reed will most likely hack this at some point because supergenius, but they tried!

[ sent via Spider-Woman communicator, there's the lady herself, pressed against the wall of a skyscraper. the video itself shifts and starts filming the streets below. she hesitates, before finally speaking ]

So I'm -- I'm Spider-Woman. I know a lot of you know that. But maybe a lot of you don't know is that I'm an U -- a member of my world's equivalent of the Avengers. You know, with Iron Man and Thor and Hawkeye and the works. I play with the big kids.

But as you can all probably tell, I'm not that big and I'm still... well, a kid. [ as much as she hates to admit it ]

Um, I know there are a lot of teen heroes running around. I'm sure a lot of you got training or something, right? Like... back in your worlds. In my world, if you tried to make it on your own as a kid, tried to... do something good, you either do it or die. There's no one to help you or be your mentor or whatever. [ excluding the X-Men of course... ] It's a tough place and I know that just being out on the front lines -- it isn't encouraged. Going out on your own to do something good... without anyone's help or at a young age, it's dangerous. And people worry about kids, I get that.

And I guess it's the same here.

[ there's silence as the video shifts in her hands, continuing to film the streets many stories below her. ]

I guess what I'm trying to say is that... you know, if you're a kid and you want to be a hero, go for it. With great power and all. But maybe there should be something for us. Like a -- a group. [ a beat ]

Like a hero group or something?

[ the camera shows a sleeping peter parker sprawled on the couch. he’s wearing only a black t-shirt, boxers, and a shabby-looking blanket dangling off his left foot. his face is pale where it hasn’t been creased from being smashed into the cushions and he’s dead to the world -- or at least to the person wielding the camera, who’s creeping closer and closer. ]

He’s totally out of it, isn’t he? [ oh, look! it’s gwen, whispering as she carefully ducks into the frame and kneeling down in front of peter. she stares at him for a moment before waving her hand in front of his face. ]

[ a voice speaks up from behind the camera, stupid queens accent clear. oh look, it’s clearly our friendly neighborhood jessica who does not... sound happy doing this. ] Yeah, I guess he’s really stressed out or something. We should leave him alone.

[ gwen turns to the camera and gives an epic eyeroll as she takes a marker out from her pocket and uncaps it. ] Him being stressed is why we’re doing this. Either he’s gonna laugh, which is something he could use about now, or he’s gonna yell and that’d be good venting. It’s a win-win for him. [ and with that bit of fail logic, she turns back to peter and ever so slowly draws a twisty handlebar moustache on his upper lip. in bright blue. ]

[ the camera zooms in on the handlebar moustache and Jessica’s heard muttering: ] This is all going to be on you, by the way. All of it.

[ gwen laughs quietly. ] I’m okay with that. [ and, oh look, now she’s drawing stuff on his eyebrows. because this is clearly the best idea ever, amirite? ]

[ except now peter’s scrunching up his face, snuffling a little as he cracks an eye open and lets out a sound best transliterated as ] Hnnnn … guh? [ blink, blink. ] Gwendy, what -- hey!

[ and then the ever so useful: ] Yikes. [ coming from Jess as the camera zooms out and then immediately cuts ]

[ oh, look, it’s the carpeting of gwen’s apartment and her black knee-high socks. she’s laughing quietly as she tip-toes down the hallway to a door that’s slightly ajar. then, the camera angle pans up to...

a wild johnny storm! he’s trying to button up a pair of pants that are just a size too small. johnny’s sucking in his stomach and jumping around, trying to get the button closed. whatever he’s saying isn’t really obvious, but it’s probably just cursing.

and then there’s the sound of someone coming up from behind whomever’s holding the camera followed by a very familiar Queens accent: ]

-- Hey, what’s going o --

[ and then the awkward crickets start chirping as the camera swings around to look at jess. who does this. ]


Dude, why the hell are you trying to wear Jess’ pants?

[ she is trying so hard not to laugh. johnny whips around to look at her and then immediately looks horrified. ]

So I've... uh... I've been in the City for a while and I guess I just haven't really said anything because I don't... have much to say? Like, what really needs to be added onto people freaking out or murders or alien invasions or whatever.

I guess after a while, all that horrible stuff -- you know, all the crazy, unnatural things... kind of become second nature? Someone says, "Oh! Godzilla's attacking Grand Central!" and you kind of go, "Oh. So just another Wednesday, right?"

[ the video clicks onto an aerial shot of the aftermaths of a crime scene. there are cop cars with sirens blaring pulled up outside of a jewelry store. five guys are covered in a huge netting of web, pinned to the ground as cops surround them. the video moves to an ever-so-familiar white-spotted red mask before it pulls out.

and for those who don't like ridiculously crazy heights or... the thought of being upside down, that is very unfortunate, as Spider-Woman is hanging upside down about four stories up from the previously mentioned crime scene. she's wearing a knit cap over her huge mass of hair that seems to have gotten bigger, a scarf around her neck, and thick, fingerless mittens.

Talk about heading home for the holidays, right? Hope I'm not too late for Christmas presents.

Wait, shit, that’s not what I—

[ the feed cuts and then comes back a moment later as voice, though it’s muffled. gwen’s got her hand over the mic. ]

Do you want me to just say it or is there something you wanted to do or whatever?

[ there’s Jess’ voice and she doesn’t sound as chipper as she normally does. instead, kind of hoarse and obviously bordering upset. her accent’s thick. ]

N-no, you can say it.

Okay... [ there’s some slight rustling and then gwen clears her throat awkwardly. ] So, uh. I’ve got some news. It’s kinda bad, I guess? I don’t know. But... Jo—

-- No, no, no, I want to say it. I’ll say it. [ a quivery beat ] Um. We can’t find Johnny. Er... Johnny Storm. Tall, blonde hair... If anyone’s --

If you’ve seen him, let us know. Otherwise... I guess that means he’s gone home, right? [ a slight awkward pause, then gwen sighs. ] Just... if you see him, tell him to stop by my — Gwen’s — place to pick up his stupid comm.

Or -- or just... tell him to get a hold of me. [ she kind of adds it on at the last second and then falls silent with a sniffle. then the feed clicks off for good. ]

[ sent straight to your communicators from the Jessica Drew comm, it’s clicked onto video and there’s a Johnny Storm lying upside on the couch, with a de-racooned eyes Gwen sitting by him, painting her nails. Jess is holding the communicator and therefore, off camera, and it’s obvious the three of them are in Gwen’s apartment.

aaaanyways, Jess is in the middle of talking (surprise, surprise) when it clicks on.

-- So, anyways, they have this team called the Avengers here. And, uh -- Nertz -- [ when she realizes that it’s recording her talking like a buttface. ]

…. Heh. Avengers, anyone?

[ gwen, totally not realizing that jess is recording this: ] Avengers is a way better name than the Ultimates. How full of yourself do you have to be to name your team the Ultimates? It kind of makes sense, though. They’re all a bunch of douchebags.

[ johnny snickers and twists around to look at jess. ]

Are they huge douchebags in every universe though? Like, just say they’re upstanding, helpful citizens or something in another universe.

[ Jess clears her throat and the camera moves upwards, filming............... the ceiling. someone take it out of her hands. ]

I don’t think they’re that bad here? I mean, I didn’t think the Ultimates were that bad.... Captain America seemed like a jerk though...

The least douche-y of them is Iron Man, and that’s saying something. I mean, the guy had a leaked sex tape. And he totally landed on our lawn once, looking for -- [ there’s a pause as she looks up and sees jess recording ] … For directions.

Man that was lame. Doesn’t that suit of his have a GPS or something?

[ the camera starts zooming in on the ceiling because, sure, why not. ]

I know, right? It’s like he’s just floating above the lawn, giving Aunt May a heart attack like... Thank you, good citizens! And I’m just standing there thinking, you’re in a giant, million-dollar suit and you can’t fucking MapQuest where you need to go? You have to come to Queens? He’s the dumbest smart guy ever.

[ aaaand then the camera’s swiveling back to Gwen in the middle of her rant, angry hand gestures caught on camera and all. after a long pause.... Jess clears her throat again and gently... whispers into the mic of the communicator ]

Iron Man, if you heard this, please don’t bust into our apartment and kill us with your repulsor beams. Thanks...

Oh, jeez. Who actually uses pick-up lines? Seriously, these are... um.

"Do you believe in love at first sight or should I walk by again?"

Some of these are just... really dumb, honestly. I don't see how they even work. Do they work?

"If you were words on a page, you would be what they call fine print."

"That shirt's very becoming on you. If I were on you, I'd be --" Oh my god! [ she sounds so embarrassed now ]

Okay, so I know a lot of you guys are from some world where you don't have technology, or at least, not the kind that we have around here.

Which is why I'm here to teach you the ways of the most important sites you'll need in your life. They aaaaareee -- [ she clears her throat ]

Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr.

Facebook is like the Network except it's required to learn how to make friends, Twitter's demanded for day-to-day commentary and celebrity following, and Tumblr is where all the trendy people go.

And to use these websites to their maximum capability, you need to understand Blingee. I have posted an example for you.

there's a pair of high-tops and the camera's pointed at the floor and then a pop-up dinosaur book. the book's flipped open a few pages, displaying various dinosaurs popping up and then there's the voice of Jessica/Jolia/Mattie or whatever you know her by (her Queens accent goes in and out and she's having a hard time trying to decide how she wants to talk) speaking up.

Um... I've never done one of these before. But I -- I think Luffy's gone. Ported out.

[ the camera clicks onto the communicator and it's blurry, but obviously focused on some random street. once it settles and sharpens up, it's obviously the street the MAC building is on. but right now, the camera points at a street pole and there's a poster with this image attached to it with the words KE$HA CONCERT AT [location]. [DATE] printed across it.

Jessica finally speaks up and she sounds exhausted. her voice is a mix of her Queens accent and no accent at all and she definitely doesn't sound like her Spider-Woman voice.

Okay, I get home and I see these signs plastered all over the place.

[ she pauses and the camera zooms in on the poster ]

Hey, there are some newbies that just came in, huh? Hi. I'm Spider-Woman. I'd shake your hand but, you know.

[ she disappears out of the video. ]

Anyways, I've been meaning to ask for a while. Back in my world, that chap Spider-Man and I kind of had a monopoly on all things quip and pop culture references. However, it seems we're forced to share that here.

I mean, seriously. Superheroing aside and all, who actually still regularly makes pop culture references? Because I imagine it'd get kind of awkward quoting Indiana Jones and then surprise! The big guy himself makes an appearance via Porter.

Not that I'm complaining if it's a popular hobby. Quippers unite, right?

Look, I wanna see it before you turn on the camera.

Too late!

[ jessica drew's voice pipes up quietly, "luffy stop touching the shampoo," which is followed by a crash and a loud squawk. johnny is running his fingers critically through his hair, oblivious to whatever trainwreck is happening in his bathtub, and jessica wakefield is smirking proudly. ]

Live action news aside, there's an essay I need to write where the prompt is, "Talk about the greatest hero that influenced you".

[ Soon Luffy steps down on a illusion!woman's dress end... Which she tugs from under his foot and continues on her way. Murrrr, so he starts picking his nose with his pinky ... :Ia ] BLEAH!!

[ Soon though, there's a scream from up above.. Getting louder and towards him? Then the camera turns around and up to a glimpse of a brunette girl dressed in red falling to the ground, obviously trying to keep from smashing into the ground. She twists and shoots a web line from her finger, swinging forward, only to crash directly into Luffy ]

Nuts!! [ The crash sends Luffy's pinky finger so up his nose that he starts getting a nosebleed ] AAAHHHHHHUUOOOOHHH!! MY dh'OOOOOOOOOOOOSE!!

Oh my god! I'm so sorry --

[ The communicator gets a slight glimpse of the girl's face, but it's blurry and hard to make out, before she's shoving the comm to the side so it's looking up at Luffy and his nosebleeding self and she's grabbing his eared-Sherlock hat and shoving it down over her face ] LOOK!

the camera zooms in and he's saying something but it's muffled because of the web around his mouth.

Say hi to your loving audience! Wave, sunshine!

[ because she needs to take her anger out on something.

Yep. Definitely more therapeutic than homework. So how do you guys deal with the inevitable stress that fills your hero life? Mass-buying stress balls?

Testing. One, two, three. Is this thing on? Maybe? Yes? Good.

As flattered as I am being considered hero enough to wind up here, a "please" and a "thank you" would be very much appreciated. Especially from creepy lady-voice.

[Anyone who has lived there will probably recognise a generic MAC room as the background in Jessica's video. She's sitting on the floor with her back against the end of her bed, holding her comm up with one hand and pressing a bag of ice to her face with the other. Her lip is split and there's some bruising around her neck, too.]

Hello, City.

[She removes the ice, revealing a large purple-green bruise around her right eye.]

I've been keeping myself busy, as always, but I'm feeling...I don't know. Lonely. So since I don't really do the whole deep, philosophical questions that people seem to pose at each other here, I thought I'd try something simple.

How are you?

[ETA: Because I'm dumb and it's only just occurred to me how poorly I thought this through, can I assume Jess called in the police after she beat the tar out of a few guys doing a drugs deal? It's not a plot I'm planning to expand or anything, and Jess would have known and complied with all relevant police procedure.]
[identity profile] webpits.livejournal.com
[The video starts with a shaky extreme close-up of Jessica, in which she's swearing softly under her breath. It then cuts to her sitting cross-legged in the middle of a bed in a small, anonymous room, facing the camera but never looking directyl at it. Her face is blank, but her eyes are red-rimmed.]

Uh, hi. I guess I'm back to being a hero again? It was a little touch-and-go for a while.

[She pauses to fiddle with a watch on her wrist.]

This thing is supposed to detect aliens, hah, which would have been super useful a few months ago. But it's going kind of nuts right now. I don't know if my, um, mandate, I guess you could call it, covers alternate dimensions or parallel universes or fucking delusional episodes, whatever it is that's going on right now. Maybe I'm still trapped in a Skrull stasis chamber and my life one huge ironic reality TV show for scaly green aliens.

So, yeah. Jessica Drew, private eye. Or Spider-Woman. Whatever suits the moment, I suppose. Are any other Avengers out there? Jeez, right now even the Great Lakes squad would be a welcome sight. Just a familiar face. Even a friendly face. Well, one that I can verify isn't a shapeshifter.
