Shelly Lightfoot/Two Aliens Conversing
From Unofficial Handbook of the Virtue Universe
"I remember your face." Moonfire stated flatly, pointing at her.
Shelly hadn't been expecting that opening. "Um. Hi. I had a few questions.... wait how do you know me?"
The Kheldian infused woman standing atop the hill stared down the hill at the diminuitive Japanese woman. "1942."
"Your telling me your over 70 years old?" Shelly asked, dubiously.
"Once merged, Peacebringers and Warshades are basically immortal. I have a photographic memory - I never forget a face. Shelly Lightfoot, isn't it."
"In the world of the kids in this time, your freaking me out." Shelly chuckled, trying to lighten the conversation slightly. "Again, how do you know me?"
"You were in a prison cell in Requiem's base near here right before the 5th Column invaded Paragon City."
"What were you doing there?"
"I was a young hero in the wrong place at the right time and had gotten caught. After the 5th column beat itself to peices against Paragon City, it was easy to make my escape. You... were not so lucky."
Shelly stared at the woman like she was crazy. "Either your talking alien or not making sense. OR both. I'm going for both."
"You were dead in that cell! I saw Reqiuem use you, abuse you, and left you to rot after he'd used a device to take your powers." Moonfire explained.
"Not me." Shelly shook her head. "Yes I'm from 70 years in the past. I've made no mystery of this fact, it's on the city records. What only Portal Corp knows is that the earth I remember had different history from yours. Parallel Earth."
Moonfire seemed a little taken aback. "An alien, then?"
"Sort of. Amazing - we have something in common, who'd have thunkit?" Shelly replied in a dry tone.
"Be glad. You met a rather unpleasant end here on this world, like I explained. Who had you come talk to me?"
"A friend named Charlie." Shelly mused. "I recently was investigating my past self native to this earth. (I call this earth Paragonian Earth, for easy reference.) I started with Portal Corp. They tried to figure out how I got here to Paragonian Earth from my home earth, but couldn't establish a reference point. So we tried doing a metallurgy test on the plane we were in when we crossed here and crashed. No luck. But we did find the remains of a 5th Column type. So I investigated. Requiem sent me an email to stay out of his way. So, being so knowledgable of the Council, my friend Charlie suggested I ask you. Well... you sort of answered my question already."
Moonfire sighed. "Your a Kitsune, right?"
Shelly nodded. "That's right."
"Don't let the Council near you. There are certain things you were able to do on this world that the 5th column wanted to get their hands on to make the second world war go in their favor. Only heroes like Stateman fought back the 5th Column after they stole your powers on this world. Don't let them get you a second time." Moonfire warned.
"Warning dually noted. I have no desire to be captured by the Council. Thanks for the information." Shelly waved before turning to leave.
