Besieged

Post Count: 3

In January 1993, UK Parliament passed the controversial Mutant Registration Act, mandating that all mutants must disclose their genetic status. When Claire Cavendish, the headteacher of Avalon Institute, publicly refuses to register her status. This act of defiance attracts the wrath of the government who send a specialised military unit to manage the situation in the Scottish Highlands. As Avalon finds itself besieged they witness a country slowly spiralling into chaos as ‘Robin Hood’ and his Sherwood Rangers launch a campaign of terror.

To force a break in the stalemate Claire allows herself to be arrested and gets put on trial, leaving behind a tense situation with those staff left behind in the institute and the Genetic Oversight Unit laying siege to the ancient bastion.

Days of Future Past

Taking inspiration from the many 'alternate universes' that exist in comics, the posts here are standalone plots that have nothing to do with the current plot of Avalon Institute. They may involve characters that are currently faculty or antagonists but could also be completely unrelated. Really the perfect way to get rid of some of that pent-up creative energy by writing something cool in the established X-Men: Avalon universe.

Couple of rules apply to this type of post:
1) Has to be set in the X-Men: Avalon continuity
2) If it involves characters active in the current time of Avalon, it has to be set in the (distant) past of these characters prior to them joining the Institute.
3) Cannot involve characters established in Canon (like 'the secret adventures of Professor X')
4) All posts should still abide by the Rules of the Game

Post Count: 75

In the weeks leading up to the Christmas break Avalon Institute organises a festival for friends and family of the institute's staff and students, they extend this invitation to the local community in New Cresthill in the hopes that they can ease some of the growing concerns of the locals for having the institute so close to their town.

What could possibly go wrong?
