Aᴄᴛ I - Video

[ There's a bit of shaking of the feed, then a weird angle of someone looking down at the camera. Enjoy that shot up his nose, ImPorts. ]

Is it working? I think... yeah, that's gotta be it.

[ The feed pulls back and Max, despite his limited time with smartphone tech, has already mastered the classic Selfie angle. He's grinning up into the feed. ]

So somebody -- what's his name? Felix? -- Someone called this place a vacation. And yeah, sure, I was plucked out of my home against my will, didn't get to say goodbye to my mom --

[ -- He didn't get to say goodbye to a lot of people, but Max pushes the thought away quickly. ]

But I for one humbly and graciously accept this small reprieve from the daily stresses of being a twelve year old. Sure, we gotta fight supervillains, but what's a little mortal danger if it means we get to skip out on standardized testing, am I right?

[ He knows all too well -- but in a place like this, where nobody knows him, at least he can pretend he used to be normal. With a dramatic sweep of his arm, he motions toward himself, still grinning all the while. ]

So, ladies and gents, my name's Max. Nice to meet you!

[Okay yeah he knew some of the imPorts were pretty young, but teenagers with powers are kind of a grey area. Not so with twelve-year-olds.]

I sincerely hope you're not planning to try fighting any supervillains.

That's a big "if." There are plenty of people here capable of taking on those threats. I'd wager some of us have been doing it longer than you've been alive. You may think it sounds cool, and you may want to try out your shiny new powers, but it's no life for a child, do you understand?

[Sorry Max, Qubit talks down to a lot of people. Also he has Strong Feelings about underqualified people doing vigilante stuff and thereby getting themselves killed.

... Maybe he was a little harsh. After all, the kid did just get here. But, you know. He can't back down too much, it's not like he's wrong, after all.]

All I'm saying is, don't feel like you have to get involved just because you're here. Just stay safe, and stay out of trouble.

[Max does have a point. Qubit doesn't want to be here, either, and he's trying to make the best of it his own way (i.e. working himself to the bone trying to fix it). Joking around is probably healthier, really.

Maybe he just heard the post the way he did because he's not used to kids that age using that kind of sarcasm. Or, uh... kids that age in general.]

... That's reasonable.

It's not going to come to that.
