Well, the scenario as of now is this:

1. Sharisha spills the beans.
2. Diamondback figures out that at least some in Poe are TG LIKE HER, and also that it is some major faux pas for Sharisha to mention it.

I figure the next steps are something similar to this:

3. Diamondback eventually decides to confide her status to Fey & Chaka.
4. Fey & Chaka talk to the other TGs and decide to tell DB, in confidence, about the Big Poe Secret.
5. DB eventually either mentions she knows someone else who is also TG (Razor), and they tell her to bring him.
6. They ask permission to tell Jericho too, since he's their best friend. Jericho is deemed trustworthy, and gets told.
7. Caitlin already knows the Poe Secret, but the others don't know she used to be Erik. Maybe at some point she figures out that the rest of the Corner is too cozy with the Poesies and decides to tell them at least that she also used to be a guy. She's also brought into the fold.

Well, the question is really who approaches who first. Does Fey and Chaka tell the rest of TK that Tempest outed them in front of Diamondback and that Sandra seem trustworthy, so the others decide to tell her about TK? Do they approach Mrs. Horton about it, and she addresses the secret of Poe? Do TK tell her without getting school support?
Or does it start with Sandra telling Razorback? Jericho? Eldritch? Does Eldritch spill the secret about Poe? Heck I don't recall, has Eldritch told them about herself yet?

My guess is that Sandra tells Razor and Jericho - because Razor is ALSO a gender bender, and Jericho is... Jericho.

They'd have a vested interest in helping to deflect attention away from Poe.

In Jericho's case, he'd use it as an opportunity.

You are failing to see one point here, people. It's the matter of "breaking other people's trust."

Diamondback can tell HER secret to Fey and Chaka, because it's HER secret. If she told Fey and Chaka's secret to Razor and Jericho before clearing it with F&C, she would be betraying their trust. And she's smart enough to know that's not a good way to win friends. Particularly after the way everybody reacted after Sharisha slipped up.

Similarly, she can't tell Razor's secret to F&C. BUT she could say she know SOMEONE ELSE who is also transgendered and ask if she may bring him/her into the secret too.

F&C would probably discuss it with the Poesies (maybe not all of them, but Team Kimba, the other TGs and a fair sample of the other residents) before telling Sandra anything more than what she has already figured out. Again, it's not so much a matter of they trusting Sandra but of not breaking the trust of the rest of the cottage.

I think Sandra, Nikki and Toni are all smart and considerate enough to not go out blabbing other people's secrets without due consideration.

Sir Lee hit it square on the head. The issue for Sandra is simple. Sharisha got lucky in outting the Kimbabies to another TG twerp. Even if in the best of intentions she told Jericho and Razorback it would be a violation of trust to Nikki and Chaka. Similarly tattling about Razorback without Jack's go-ahead would be rather presumptuous.

Sandra is the most likely to let sleeping dogs lie after telling TK that Jericho is unlikely to care. Otherwise, it's not her business unless that tidbit would save someone's life.

Caitlin is a different animal entirely. Just because she's a student (by the most bare and technical definitions in existence) doesn't mean her patterns will change much now. The students are still "Her kids" and God help anyone who tries to hurt them near her.

On Poe... She thinks the house secret there is a backlash waiting to happen, but she keeps the secret because she's willing to trust Carson's not completely of her rocker. Besides which, in Caitlin's mind, orientation and gender issues are nunya fukkin' bizness unless it becomes a problem. She knows that Poe is GLBT, but does she know specifically that Sundog is gay, and Zenith is a TG lesbian? Nope. Beyond the fact of what Poe's purpose is, the rest is irrelevant data.

Forgive me if this has been stated in canon and I've forgotten, but do we know why Sandra wasn't put into Poe in the first place? Did she simply not put her TG status down on her application form, or is Poe not equipped to deal with GSD cases? If it's the latter, I'd say that the TG issue would be more of a concern if I was the one deciding these things.

I believe GSD or power issues trump Poe issues Heartless keeps trying to put Billi in Hawthorn.

Up until sometime around Thanksgiving 2006, Poe did not have a tunnel connection. Anyone with serious GSD (and Diamondback certainly qualifies) has to be in a dorm with a tunnel connection for use during red and yellow flag days.

Whether the administration is going to open Poe up to kids with severe GSD is still unknown, but Sandra wouldn't be transferred there anyway; kids are usually not transferred to Poe. There's too much chance of revealing the "Poe Secret."

Aaaand that answers the question about the Parkour Hooligans rather nicely. So much for Caitlin's cover.

Caitlin's cover was primarily to keep her status as an unbound Artificer secret. Both Nephandus and Imperious have figured it out, and Fey/Aunghadhail just did as well. There are other reasons for the masquerade, but that's the major one.

I finally just finished the latest part of Call the Thunder. I can only say its excellent. Keeps right in the usual vein of Cait getting into trouble, and back out, with her twisted sense of humor, Fey's combat final was excellent, (learning to work around problems when things are screwed up was excellent too.) I truly hope Trout is found out and pays big time. He has no idea what he has done, not only to Cait, but to a good bunch of kids also. The ending was interesting also. I guess Hippy has been brought down a notch or two, and may learn she needs to work with a team mate, even if it is a guy. She is not all powerful, and Lancer, as sharp as he is, learned a few things also.I hope no one points out that if had not been Hippy and her re-gen, Cait may have killed a student, even if she MAY have had it coming. If it had been anyone else, she may have cause serious injury or death...."lucky" it was Caitlin she lost her temper at. Maybe people will take Caitlins Rager and UV status serious. Maybe she needs the same protective status Tennyo has. Mess with her and go to jail forever, may work.

To sum it all up........outstanding work JG.

It seems that Lancer's Pk Shell can absorb all the energy(in various forms) that is aimed at it and release it later to great effect.

So is this upgrade to Hank just magic absorption/redirection or does it include other energy types (psi, electric, thermal, simple kinetic thwacks, etc)?

Leave it to me to live in a defective fictional universe.

I think he knows exactly what he's doing.

Call The Thunder 6


Agent Collins was a stereotypical MCO suit, expensive clothing, carefully tended hair, and of course, the mirrorshades. The man had a perpetual scowl on his face that he wore every time he went into a field operation that warranted his personal attention. The man disliked mutants since he started in the agency. Trout had walked his first beat with the man under his original name. Neither of them was particularly fond of mutants, but Trout had always had more an eye for the big score than the moral imperative. Never mind the MCO paid better for information about up-and-coming threats than they paid their agents.

The agent's scowl lessened a bit as he recognized his former partner. "Ah, Lieutenant, I was wondering when someone would be bringing in the Materials package for this particular run."

Well, they deliberately set it up that way, in the expectation that Lancer and Hippolyta could take it.
