        It’s slightly worrying when they reach the newest crime scene and the kid is as unfazed as Ducky with the body.  All he does is wrinkle his nose a little and push his sunglasses back up.  “Man, this is worse than back in ’03,” he remarks, voice calm and steady.
        One of his ‘agents’ isn’t quite so lucky; she runs off the crime scene to throw up in the bushes, and the others look a little green.
        “Hey, Sierra.  I thought I said, after you could barely look at the pictures, that you could wait in the car?”  At least he cares about his agents.
        “I didn’t want to be the wuss,” she mumbles, miserable, and DiNozzo quickly takes pity on her.
        “Well, why don’t you help me bag and tag?”  That way, she doesn’t have to look at the giant mass of blood and body parts splattered over the brick wall.
        The quiet one—Isabelle?—nods and takes the camera.  Her manner is no-nonsense and businesslike and Redgrave grins in approval.
        He crouches, staring at the stain fixedly.
        “Redgrave?”  Kate asks, looking disturbed.
        “I’m thinking.”  He points at a particular spot on the wall.  “Those marks?  Pretty sure I’ve seen them before.  Claw-weapons.  Just trying to place them.”
        “We’ll keep the nosy ones out,” the one who’d been hurting Tony says with a smile and takes two of her friend’s arms to join the police at the barricade.
        Redgrave taps on his communications device.  “Willow-lite, you there?”
        “The name’s Orelia, and yeah, I’m here, and yes, I’m going through the databases.  No hits as of yet.  I’ll keep you updated.  Oh, and Willow will be glad to know that yes, the sunglasses are working and probably everyone in the field should wear them.”  She sounds sarcastic, long-suffering even.
        “Don’t worry, she enjoys her job,” Redgrave assures them.
        “We’ll help talk to people,” the last two add together, smiling.  They could be non-identical twins.
        “Get everything you can, and we’ll see you back at base,” Redgrave acknowledges, thoughtful and distracted.

       “Haunt the past.  Do not let the past haunt you,” one of the girls says sagely to Abby, who looks confused.
       “That sounds good and all, but what does it mean?” she asks.

I’m kind of used to writing reports by now, whether for the Foundation or for the Morioh Police Department.  I don’t like it any more than I liked my homework years ago, but there’s a better reason behind it, anyway.  These are to keep people informed and safe, so that’s worth a whole lot more.

I’m sending this with the representatives of the SWC that they’re sending to collect the old man, too, which is even more important because if they read it they’ll at least have an idea of how to fight it if he tries anything funny.

Oh, and I got his name from his wallet.  Apparently he was fighting because his grandkids are in danger, so we should see if we can’t rescue them.

I’d like to say hi to the young lady I talked to on the phone.  It was great talking to you, kid.

Back in Time

Stand User: William Kaulitz

Power: A

Speed: E

Range: B

Durability: C

Precision: S

Potential: D

 

Back in Time is a really terrifying Stand, but that’s true for most of the Stands that can control time (just ask Jotaro-san!)  Once it gets off its effect, you’re stuck going through your past.  I suppose it’s a kind of stealth Stand, too, since it can’t really protect its user.  It takes the form of a pocket watch without a cover.  I found it searching him when he was unconscious, and it looks weird enough it probably is a Stand.

pocketwatch without a cover in Back to the Future colours

Don’t Look Back: Back in Time’s main mechanism is shuffling you through moments in your past you’ll either want to change or situations you’ll find it difficult to get out of without changing.  It works off the opponent’s psychology, which is the terrifying part, since everybody’s probably had days and moments they wanted to change.  If you give in to the urge or mess up, you’ll start turning transparent and in general begin fading from the world.  However, this also means that certain powers in the past don’t affect you in the same way as the last time, and if this lets you survive something that would’ve killed you, it can at least partially undo the transparent effect.  It’s possible that managing to go through a certain number of jumps without messing up is all you need to do, but I didn’t get to test this.  Back in Time also has no way to protect its User specifically, so if you can take him out or get him to stop using his Stand, you should be good.  (Though from what I can tell, he’s actually a nice guy, and he’s also old, so if you can not kill him, that would be great.)  He should be easy to spot, though, once you know what you’re looking for—he reverse ages in every ‘era’ you visit.  It looks a little like it’s proportional, but I didn’t get a good look.

         Unfortunately, it turns out that the semi-eidetic memory has a flaw: to remember something, he has to actually pay attention to it first.  Maybe it’s a survival mechanism to avoid drowning in the data but it’s hard to remember to be grateful as he’s, once again, staring at a blank history test just ‘cause the class bores him.  There aren’t even HYDRA or SHIELD historical details to perk his interest.

Another fun thing from watching the Captain America credits: Peter Stark was a Hydra Lieutenant.  Like, Howard should totally reexamine his life choices, but Peter???  Peter definitely needs help.  /grins
Also, Riley's a decent guy, generally, but that ending was a dick move, and Xander was an ass, so.  Fixing that.  (He'll mess up later, in other ways, but ways that make more sense and aren't just punish Buffy for anything she does.  For one thing, related to this he's gonna forget this about Willow with the whole Alicia thing and she still has to yell at him.)
Plus there is absolutely nothing wrong with being single.  'Course, in canon, part of it is that Xander doesn't see the unhealthy relationship bit of it and is just like "this guy is the best relationship you've ever had" but still.  Meh.

        “Bet.”  Xander’s leaning forward, grinning mischievously.  “Tasha already has a DNA sample and is sending it to SHIELD to get it analyzed as we speak.”
        Tony doesn’t look up from the paper.  “I see that, and I’ll raise you that Mr. Eyepatch won’t believe the results and send the ferocious assassin to nab another sample from you just to see.”
        Xander frowns.  “Damn.  Curse you and your extensive gambling knowledge.”

I only learned about Cinemark's Marvel XD today but I got to see Iron Man again so it's a fair trade.
Things I didn't notice the first time (from the credits):
One of Downey's assistants was named Christine.
Tony's Catering provided some food for the crew.
I was amused.

         Xander doesn’t hear the steps entering his warehouse with his physical ears over the earmuffs and his pounding at the anvil.  It’s the mental tap on his shoulder, courtesy of a new sentry alarm spell he and White Star worked out, that gets his attention, and he carefully places the hammer aside and wipes the sweat off his forehead, tugging the earmuffs down around his shoulders.
         He turns to see Giles crossing the floor carefully, freezing in shock.  “I didn’t—sorry—”
         Xander takes pity on him, crossing the floor and meeting him halfway.  “I’m cool.  You’re not a mad scientist.  I’m not gonna lose my mind now.”
         “I know no one else asked about this, but—if you need to talk about anything that happened, I’m sure your time spent in the Initiative could not have been a cake walk, as you’ve been trying to get the others to believe.”  It’s…impressive, honestly.  Sometimes Giles backs away, doesn’t try to be the father figure because honestly, as a Watcher he hadn’t really signed up for it, doesn’t know what to do.  Now, he’s actually noticing, actually trying, and that—what else can Xander ask for?
         “I’m—I might.  Maybe.  Don’t feel about talking about it now, though, so don’t hold your breath.”  He glances at the papers in Giles’ hands and frowns.  “If that’s homework I’ve missed, you can head right back to your apartment, though.”
         “No—” and yeah, that was a mistake, reminding Giles he doesn’t have his other job anymore.  “It’s—I want help looking through the files the Initiative had.”
         Xander’s mind goes cold, but he steels himself into dealing.  “Do you have digital data as well?  Star could lend a digital hand.”
         “I still have the disks.”  Giles holds them up, still hesitant.  “It’s not…too much, is it?”
         Xander grins, shoving back all the trauma for the others to deal with.  “Hey, I tend to obsessively categorize anything that scares me.  Makes me feel more in control.  That’ll help me, and I can help, too, which always makes me feel better, so count me in.”

         First, I'd like to say that I think it's fun/funny that most of my important Buffy news comes in the form of the Sunnydale Herald.
         Now, to get down to business:
         The news about Joss Whedon...actually doesn't change a thing for me in terms of Buffy, other than freaking me out a little.  Why?
         I've always hated Dollhouse.  I found it a little interesting, plotwise, and it's the type where it starts conversations, which is occasionally an important service, but unlike my friends who loved it just like the rest of his works I actually found myself dreading the weekly meet-ups to watch it and counting down the episodes until we could move on to something else.  I hate Whedon's work in Marvel, aside from a few scenes, because it was his touch that (maybe) paved the way to Self-Righteous Asshole Steve Rogers, which just...no.  (And might have led to Hydra!Cap which is still an abomination unto mankind.)  I hate that the Avengers movie ignored any character development in Tony, which is one of the biggest reasons I love Iron Man 3.  I suspect he was behind the decision to break Tony and Pepper up, which--okay, Tony's not one to stay in relationships, usually, but this is freaking Pepper and do we need to have a discussion about a) character development and b) how WE DON'T SEE ENOUGH HEALTHY LONG-TERM RELATIONSHIPS IN TV BECAUSE DAMMIT WATCHING AN AWESOME COUPLE HAVE FIGHTS AND MAKE UP AND DEAL WITH LIFE'S SHENANIGANS TOGETHER IS JUST AS INTERESTING AND IN SOME CASES IS MORE SO THAN ALL THE ANGST 'LET'S BREAK THEM UP' THINGS??  Why?  I love Wash/Zoe and we don't see much of them as a couple being all couply and I suspect personal issues lead to him having issues writing healthy long term relationships, but I digress.
         The point is, I've never worshiped the ground beneath the man's feet.  I've never seen him as The Last Great Feminist, or whatever he's trying to brand himself.  I've never just loved his works unconditionally.  Buffy and Angel and Firefly are problematic works.  I love them, but there are just some really flawed parts of them, and I've never ignored that.  All the characters do stupid things.  And sometimes the stupid things are things people would do, and are in character, and the characters grow past them, so as dumb as they are, I don't retcon those.  And some things, I thought, were written mostly for the angst or the CWness of it all, but we're learning now that maybe they were written for darker reasons, maybe.
         I've always thought that the worst parts of Xander are Joss Whedon projecting.  That hasn't changed.
         I love the dialogue.  That hasn't changed.  I love huge parts of it, the show in general (obviously), but the parts I don't like haven't changed, nor have the things Whedon has written that I don't like.
         The thing is, shows especially are huge creative endeavors brought to life by a huge group of people.  Whedon's not responsible for every single awesome thing on Buffy and maybe his bad contributions outweigh the good.  But you know what?  There were awesome actors, and awesome script writers, and the whole freakin' fandom, and we made it our own, so you know what, Whedon?  You can't take the sky from me.

Notes: The only thing I'm sure of is this is a messed-up post-Glory (i.e. they beat her but not completely and it messed up the world).  This might be based on one of my early ideas where Xander turned out to actually be a bastard and his father is actually one of the Generals of one of the Hell Dimensions (the Underworld) rather than Tony Harris.  And yes, there's flirting.  This version's based on Dante, what do you expect?
