@Tranquil: (SMH...)

Quentin walks in, shoulders slouched and on the defensive. He had promised his aunt he'd let this woman work on his troubled psyche, but that didn't mean he had to like it.

@Quintessence_: Alexandra stepped out of her office wearing a black pencil skirt, a red satin blouse and matching pumps. "Hello, I'm Dr. Steele. Would you like to come inside?" She raised her eyebrows toward the newcomer and indicated the door to her office.

@The Psyentist: He gave her a glare that indicated that he very much did NOT want to go inside, but started moving to the door anyway. "Quentin Karaii. My aunt called I think."

@Quintessence_: "Ah, yes. Mr. Karaii. Well, I appreciate you coming in to see me. I take it that this wasn't your idea. I'll try to make this painless." She smiled sweetly. "You may have a seat anywhere you'd like." The doctor sat herself in her chair, brushing her back her soft, blonde locks and clearing her throat.

@The Psyentist: Well, at least this wasn't one of the overly-cheery types that grated on Quentin's nerves as if they were trying to make it even more like Swiss Cheese. He took a seat in a couch furthest from the doctor

@Quintessence_: "I won't bite." She smirked. "So, Mr.Karaii, why did you aunt suggest you come to me?" The doctor tilted her head awaiting his reply.

@The Psyentist: Quentin sighed. "Acute Bipolar Disorder, diagnosed several years ago, I've been on...uh..." He rummages in his messenger bag. "These things" He tosses the bottle of pills to the doctor.

#109 Posted by The Psyentist (16350 posts) - - Show Bio

@Quintessence_: Alexandra caught the bottle and examined it, taking note of the formulation. "I see. Has the medication helped at all? Any troubling side effects?"

#110 Posted by Quintessence_ (62 posts) - - Show Bio

@The Psyentist: "I dunno. It just seems to tone everything down...I don't like it" He left the obvious implication and the last date of refill speak for what he wouldn't say...he didn't take it like he was supposed to.

#111 Posted by The Psyentist (16350 posts) - - Show Bio

@Quintessence_: "I can understand your... dislike of the treatment. But sometimes toned down can be healthier than the extremes." She held up the pill bottle. "It also helps to take the proper dosage at the right time. But I don't want to grill you on things you've already heard before. I'd prefer to know more about you." She tossed back the bottle. "Bipolar disorder... life has dealt you a rough hand. How do you deal with it aside from the meds?"

#112 Posted by Quintessence_ (62 posts) - - Show Bio

@The Psyentist: "Super-powers" he says it with a straight face. At this point most doctors get more concerned with his 'delusions' than they should be...

#113 Posted by The Psyentist (16350 posts) - - Show Bio

@Quintessence_: Alexandra nodded. "What can you do? And what do you do with what you've been given?"

#114 Posted by Quintessence_ (62 posts) - - Show Bio

@The Psyentist: She still might be trying to play him...Quentin doesn't show her what he can do yet. "Uh...I can take on abilities, sort of. It's hard to explain. Usually I help people, but I don't think they really deserve it right now."

Walks in with a serious face, then sits down in the waiting room with his fist holding his chin and beigins with his brooding while he waits.

@Quintessence_: "Really?" She raised her eyebrows and leaned forward with intense interest. "That sounds absolutely fascinating. But as a psychiatrist, I can imagine humanity doesn't seem worthy. However, Mr. Karaii, heroism is less about others, and more about you." The doctor gave a small smile.

#117 Posted by The Psyentist (16350 posts) - - Show Bio

@DarkKnightDetective: Alexandra breezed into the room. "Well, hello. I'm Dr. Steele... I'm not interrupting anything, am I?" She raised an eyebrow.

#118 Posted by Quintessence_ (62 posts) - - Show Bio

@The Psyentist: Huh...she might not believe him, but she was putting on a pretty good show. "Right! If I don't want to save anyone, I don't have to. Not my problem."

@The Psyentist: His face does not change as he stands up and says." Let's get this over with" and the proceeds by rudely getting into her office and sitting down in the chair.

#120 Posted by The Psyentist (16350 posts) - - Show Bio

@Quintessence_: "You're right." She nodded. "You certainly don't have to save people if it doesn't weigh on your conscious. You make your own decisions with your power. Frankly, I've seen many who've done worse with superpowers."

@DarkKnightDetective: "Well, I do hope our meeting won't be too dull." She sat down gingerly across from him. "But that is entirely up to you. May I ask your name, sir?"

#122 Posted by Quintessence_ (62 posts) - - Show Bio

@The Psyentist: "Yeah, I don't hurt people." There's a certain light behind his eyes now. He's started to talk about one of his passions, and his foul mood is vanishing. "And I can control it pretty well. I don't shoot eye beams or anything, not usually anyway. Though I can't fly most of the time either, which sucks."

#123 Posted by The Psyentist (16350 posts) - - Show Bio

@Quintessence_: "I can imagine flying is convenient. And you are fortunate in that. Many of the metahumans who come through my office can't control their abilities. As you can imagine, that is a very dangerous affair. So, you don't hurt people, but you don't always save them. How do you feel when you do save people, using your powers for a purpose?"

#124 Posted by Dark_Vengeance_ (13824 posts) - - Show Bio

@The Psyentist: " I am Dark Vengance". he answers in a serious voice, as he plans in his head what he will say next.

@DarkKnightDetective: "Well... that is quite thematic. Do you have repartee to go with that nomenclature?"

#126 Posted by Quintessence_ (62 posts) - - Show Bio

@The Psyentist: "It's okay. Sometimes it's nice. It's not that easy to find crime though, so I don't get to do much with my powers most of the time. I don't know." He shrugs.

Angel walks in to the waiting room with a look of reluctance on his face, He looks over at the dripping water cooler and over at the chairs. "I'm bored already"

Angel sits down on the comfortable chair and flips through the magazines on the coffee table "Home and living, Home Styles, Your Home and You, Cooking at Home,I should have brought something from home"

Angel rests his head back in the chair and closes his eyes.

@Quintessence_: "Maybe you aren't looking hard enough... evil lurks in the most usual places." Alexandra grinned. "Have you considered joining a team?"

@AmazingAngel: "What would you prefer?" Alexandra leaned on her doorway. "Be careful how you answer. I'm trained in psychotherapy." The doctor smirked. "I'm Dr. Steele. Can I help you?" She stepped forward in her black, patent leather pumps.

@The Psyentist: "mmmhh" he grunts as he grinds his teeth.

@DarkKnightDetective: "That is a terrible sound." She grimaced at the sound of grinding teeth. "What brings you here today, Dark Vengence?" The blonde woman stared at him plainly.

@The Psyentist: "Allies, they believe that I am too cold, and my friends say that I make barriers." he answers with a numb face.

#132 Posted by The Psyentist (16350 posts) - - Show Bio

@DarkKnightDetective: Alexandra nodded. "That is a definite downside of alliances. People expect their comrades to be open with them. Why do you suppose they find you cold and detached?"

#133 Posted by Dark_Vengeance_ (13824 posts) - - Show Bio

@The Psyentist: "Because I am, because being too open with people shows weakness and I can't have that."

#134 Edited by AmazingAngel (3820 posts) - - Show Bio

@The Psyentist: "Trained in psychotherapy huh, so if I request anything with fast cars of yachts I'm overcompensating for a small peep, anything with video games and I'm a violent sociopath and I don't even want to know what you'd think about me requesting a pro wrestling and bodybuilding magazine."

Angel stood to his feet and approached the doctor, "I just want some help with a recurring dream I've been having, no oedipus complexes, no Freudian super ego's and no role playing cops and prisoners like you guys seem to love." Angel smirked and tilted his head, taking off his sunglasses. He sat back down to the chair and picked up a magazine with the title 'Small Cars and Modest Houses Monthly' He crossed his legs and rested the magazine on his lap looking back at the doctor.

#135 Posted by The Psyentist (16350 posts) - - Show Bio

@DarkKnightDetective: "Au contrair. Being open shows one has no weaknesses. People who hold back, who hide are the ones who are afraid that someone will find some flaw and exploit it."

@AmazingAngel: Alexandra laughed. "Something like that." She winked. "Well, we can discuss the dream." She raised a finger, her red lips curling into a smile. "I'd like to think I'm in a class of my own. Now, tell me about this dream. But first, do you have a name?" She sat down in the chair at the center of her office.

#136 Posted by Dark_Vengeance_ (13824 posts) - - Show Bio

@The Psyentist: "But I have flaws, that's why I must hide them. Take secret identities as a example, they all know who each other is except for who I am, If any of them is telepathically attacked and their identities are leaked, they don't just put themselves and their families at risk, they also put the others' families at risk."

#137 Posted by The Psyentist (16350 posts) - - Show Bio

@DarkKnightDetective: "Of course, but if you're going to play the "what if" game, a telepath could assault you and reveal you identity. Risk is part of life, part of all attachments." Alexandra leaned forward, her hair falling around her face as she looked at him intently. "I've treated humans and metahumans alike. Part of mental health is attachment and vulnerability. Your comrades suggested you be more open because they care about you. They like what little you've shown of yourself. They trust you, they want you to trust them."

#138 Posted by Dark_Vengeance_ (13824 posts) - - Show Bio

@The Psyentist: "A telepath couldn't attack me because I block telepath waves with a that I built into my suit device into my suit, and risk is not a part of life, because risk is fear and I prepare for fear".

#139 Posted by The Psyentist (16350 posts) - - Show Bio

@DarkKnightDetective: Alexandra smirked, quite satisfied with this newfound knowledge. Devices could be easily bypassed when their existence was known. "You keep your suit on all the time? Damn shame." She turned her head. "Prepare for fear? Do you know much of the concept? Risk is only fear-arousing when fear is already present. Those who do not have fear can afford to take risks."

#140 Posted by Dark_Vengeance_ (13824 posts) - - Show Bio

@The Psyentist: "Risks are not allowed in my world".

#141 Posted by The Psyentist (16350 posts) - - Show Bio

@DarkKnightDetective: "Well... you mean the risks you are aware of." She leaned her head back, her eyes resting on him strangely.

#142 Posted by Dark_Vengeance_ (13824 posts) - - Show Bio

@The Psyentist: "I know all the risks". He smirks in a almost diabolical manner.

@DarkKnightDetective: Alexandra blinked at him disbelievingly. "Really? You think you can stop anything with just what's on your utility belt?"

Still smirking as he points to his brain and says "No, with this".

@DarkKnightDetective: "No, I just treat them." She lied with the skill of a complete sociopath.

@The Psyentist: "What type of metahumans do you treat here exactly? Am I really your first unpowered? He says untruthfully.

@DarkKnightDetective: "Oh, no. I treat humans as well. I have seen humans, mutants, aliens, demons... all sorts." She spoke cooly. Given his apparent reliance on his suit, she assumed his declaration of his 'normal' humanity to be genuine.

@The Psyentist: "Are all of them as tall, handsome, and brooding as I am?". He says in a almost serious manner.
