Belinda Hollins regarded the intruder with professional cool.
"What is it you want?"
"Maybe I just want to kill you," Angela suggested.
"Get on with it then."
Angela laughed, and dropped the body of Belinda's secretary. She stepped forward and leaned over the mayor, running her hands up and down the shorter woman's arms.
"Lucky for you I have other plans."
Half an hour later the local press were gathered, and Angela walked out onto the steps of City Hall with the mayor in tow. Keeping it together surprisingly well, Belinda began to address the gathering.
"We live in truly...remarkable times." She turned to Angela with a raised eyebrow, as if it say 'You realy want me to read this crap?' Angela smiled and nodded, gesturing for her to continue.
"Yes. Remarkable times. The world is changing: the dawn of a new era is upon us...an era of peace. An era where crime and war do not exist. And it's my honour to be the one to introduce you to the person who will be resposible for bringing it all about. I give you..."
"HOLD IT THERE!"
Angela glared out into the crowd, trying to spot the source of this rude interruption. A woman stepped forward, and Angela Murphy groaned.
"You're rampage is over, bitch!" the new arrival decalred. It was hard for Angela to take her seriously, dressed as she ws in what was clearly a very quickly thrown together ensemble.
"I was saving the demonstration of my power for after my speech. But thanks for volunteering."
Angela walked calmly toward the woman as everyone else scattered.
"I don't think anyone's going to hold it against me when I kill your ass," the stranger declared. Before Angela took her fifth step the new arrival splayed her arms, reaching out toward newsvans parked about a hundred feet away on either side of her. The vans crumpled a little as she closed her fists and raised her arms a little. Both vehicles rose smoothly into the air. Then the woman slammed her fists together in front of her, and the vans flew in toward Angela. The impact shook the ground, and left Angela trapped inside a mangled mass of steel and plastic. The mass groaned and protested...a hand appeared from within. The woman reached out with both hands and grunted as the mass of metal shifted and shook, and shrank.
Angela let out a roar of rage as the wrecked vans crunched hard into her flesh. It was very uncomfortable, but not painful. She could feel the steel trying to crush her, and her muscles resisted easily enough. It was as though someone were giving her a firm hug. Frustrated at having her official introduction to the world she planned to conquer spoiled, she pulled her arms and legs in tight only to shoot them out again and stretch her tremendously powerful body to it's limit. The woman cried out, and protected herself with some sort of force field as the metal coccoon became an oversized hand grenade.
"Is that all you've got?" Angela demanded, walking forward toward her attacker.
"No."
Angela stopped walking and froze.
"Why don't you tell me how you got these power?"
"I don't know. I fell down, and when I got up I was a god."
"A god?"
"Yes," Angela informed her, her tone monotous. Inside, she struggled against the compulsion to stand like a statue and answer these questions so honestly.
"How can I stop you?"
"You can't. I'm too strong now. If you kill me I'll regenerate."
"How can I convince you stop killing?"
"You can't. I'm determined to get stronger, and shall not rest until I have conquered the world and placed everyone under my rule."
"Then I have no choice."
Angela cried out and dropped to her knees as blood started to flow from her nose. She could feel the woman's mental touch become a crushing hold as her brain started to fry...but as the hold tightened so too did the feint connection between the two women. Angela sensed it through the pain...and seized upon it. It was not as fast as direct contact, but she could feel the essence of her attacker start to fill her, and the devine sensation brought a smile to her face.
"Thank you...mmmm."
The woman dropped to her knees as Angela stood a little straighter. This change was far more obvious to her than the first two. Eveything was different. The whole world suddenly opened up to her and she could feel everything...and everyone. Experimenting, Angela waved a hand over the distant line of reporters and police. There were confused screams as they all dropped as one to the ground, their life force visiblly streaming from them and into Angela.
"YES!" she cried. She had drained them from a distance of nearly a hundred feet. She didn't even need to touch people anymore. Angela was starting to see that her potential was now limitless. Abandoning her desire to use the old power structure, Angela decided she could now enforce her will directly. The crowd that was running away down the other direction stopped as her eyes fell upon them. They stood still for a moment, and then turned as one and started walking steadily toward her. When get within a few feet they knelt and bowed their heads. Angela stood watching them in fascination as they formed a circle around her, and started to pray.

"Bottoms up" said Rae as she handed the beer to the mysterious stranger "Drink you paid for it."

The stranger shrugged. "Angela-in about a month they try dropping an attomic bomb on her. It mostly works. Mater- mater in all things. just under a Millions die but not you. You can save them though. You can save all of them"

Star laughed. "How?

"Well your going to have to loose this"

the woman picked up the crumpled 20.

"What? said Star.

"This 20 dollar bill. Tip isn;'t it. i am not exactly sure. But its very important. I don't forsee any future where you can save them, and have the 20 dollars"

.Rae laughed.

"Well if you want the 20 bucks..you know at this point you can have it....

"i don't want it" said the woman " i don't actually know who gets it. Someone else i guess. But you loose it. and i have to give you the choice"

Star paused. "Who are you"

"You have this 20 dollars. you save it. you put it in your bra. Mommento. maybe just becuse of this conversation. Thats a mindscrew But you use it to buy a wedding ring. You use it to save up for the most important purchase of your entire life- hes a handsome man."

"I'm gay" said Rae in more forceful terms then she had ever actually used.

"i am talking about the man your daughter marries. you give that ring for your daughters hand" The woman pauses. . "You couldn't have gone with pabst-You didn't want some hipster cred"

"What are you saying" Said star. "What are you fucking talking about"

"You save them all, but you need a choice. None of that happens. enough variables everything is a random number. You can save them all but you don't get the twenty.. And i am giving you a choice"

Wowzers, Angela is some kind of powerful. I'm not sure how Star is going to stop Angela but 20 bucks seems a small price to pay, or is it some very deep stuff or maybe I'm just over thinking things.

Angela closed her eyes and listened to the prayers as she spread her influence over the city. She sensed those who were different...and all those with powers similar to the woman she just defeated tried to resist, but Angela grinned and used their power to enhance her own and strengthen her hold over those in her range while increasing that range. At this rate she was certain she would soon have total control over the whole city in minutes. Angela swooned as she 'taxed' her population a tiny percentage of their vitality, and felt her strength quadruple. Her muscles shifted and grew in size and density, stretching her latest outfit to its very limit.
Then she found her. The meddlesome brat. She considered taking her life there and then, but the desire to end the girl's life was outweighed by her yearning for revenge. The girl had nearly ended her rule before it even began, afer all, and she had to be made ot pay for that. And pay slowly.
Passing her influence around the suburbs of Cape Hope Angela sensed millions of people dropping to their knees in supplication, chanting nice things about their new ruler. Fully aware how great this was going to feel, Angela tapped into the unique abilities of all those she sensed as different, and took from them what no others could give her.
It was an even more magnificent rush than she had anticipated. Watching her reflection in the mirror, Angela thrilled to sight of her magnificent body growing taller and thicker, healthier and stronger. New abilities popped into her body alongside the rush of pure life force by the dozen, the life force of hundreds of thousands of people filling the air and churning around her as the raw energy infused itself into her. She could see herself become more beaufiful and realised that at least several thousand of those she had tapped had the power of enhanced sexual appeal. Combined now in her body, the result was beyond stunning, beyond awe inspiring, and far beyond terrifying. When she was done Angela was eight feet tall and positively glowing with health and vitality. No one prayed now...they were too busy spasming in unwanted euphoria, completely crushed by just the vision of what Angela had become. Her influence spread further as her feet left the grounds and she gently hovered in the air. Her eyes glowed green as she crushed the wills of millions more every second, taxing each and every one of her new slaves 5 percent of their lifeforce. The process left her pawing at her own magnificent body as she became stronger and sexier with each passing moment.
The steeet began to fill with poeple as her slaves approached from everywhere, gathering to kneel before her and shower her with praise as she grew stronger and stronger, her will now a irrefutable force that spread itself relentlessly across the entire penisula.

Star nodded. She felt something at the back of her neck. but it was weak.

"alchol" said her friend as she drank her beer. "Angela just aborbed the mental powers of one of the most powerful beingsi n the city Using it here.. But she can't absorb the energy of those who drink grain alchol. the original super couldn't handle a drunken mind can't process it. so drink up"

Rae drank up. "Drink tonight for tommorow we die"

"All men die. those millions? Yeah there going to die. nothing you can do to save them in the long run. 10 years 50 all of them will die. To infinity the diffrence means little.

"except to them" said Star. "Got to save them."

she looked down " How do i do it?

"Take the 20." said the woman...you go out and you let her drink your power your life, all of that jazz.

"What?" said star.

"like i said-you can take a taxi it maybe faster borrow a car. she can't sence you until your riight close to her..then shes going to find you and probabbly start cackling like a madman. maybe monologing. She had a really hard life. Terrible really. I pity her. Those who are that hungry....but you go up and you let her do it.

"With the 20 dollars" said star. "do i go to a store and buy something"

"No" said the woman"or maybe. I am not going to tell you any more. just you know go off and face your destiny.

"am i like posion. is the 20 dollars a special posion note"

"Shes downtown right outside city hall. you can find her She is very hard to miss at this point"

Rae paused and adjusted her costume looking in the mirror

The woman walked out taking a beer. "You had to go natty light. Well in any case"

and walked out.

Rae paused and finished her beer.

"Wait i second should i be driving now?"

then laughed.

A quick apology to those who are waiting for me to finish this. There's very little left to do now, with the end just around the corner. Thanks to Castor for assistance and his patience.

Angela stood in the street, her arms held out wide as her power swelled beyond anything she might have imagined before this moment. The rush she got taking Blaster's power was miniscule compared to the way she felt right now. For a moment she felt she would burst, but at least ten of the supers she had absorbed had been invulnerable...she was somehow certain of that...and now she was as tough as they, only multiplied tenfold. She grabbed at her perfect breasts, astonished by how firm they now were. Even her own superstrong hands could not apply pressure enough to hurt her. She maliciously dug her fingers into her flesh only to produce intense pleasure.
Angela suddenly needed something she had not had for forty-nine years. She needed a man, and she needed one now.
Even as she searched the entire penisula for the perfect man to please her, Angela allowed her prodigious level of power to lift her feet off the road and float up into the sky above the forced adorations of the crowd. It wasn't that she applied effort to floating, it more like she stopped trying to stay grounded.
Selecting a man, one who looked like a pretty-boy but had a heart dark as her own. Like every single person in Cape Hope who's mind she had enthralled, he had been laying with his body pointing toward his goddess's location and mumbling prayers. Suddenly he was grasped by an invisible yet undeniable force and lifted into the air. When he cleared the local buildings he accelerated to an incredible speed and shot toward the city. He cried out in agony when he came to rapid halt in the air. Before him the impossible vision that had taken over his mind was made reality. She was...everything. She was beauty; she was fear. His mind reeled as he felt that crushing hold release him. The truth that she was beautiful beyond any reasonable reality remained.
"Wha...who...are you?"
Angela grinned. "Tell me. Say my name."
"What?"
"Who am I?"
"You're god."
"Well...not exactly. But that'll do for now."
Angela snapped her fingers and her clothes vanished, painting brief white flame over her skin.
"It's not...not possible. How can you be so...so...."
"I know." She patted his cheekm sending shivers down his spine. "I'm too much. And believe me, it feels as good as it looks, honey. Andd for the next, well...however long this takes...all this is just for you, baby."
He had control over his arms and legs, but he was still held aloft and unable to make the move he so desperately wanted to make. He couldn't throw her down and have her. But she could see what he wanted to do, and Angela reversed the situation by making him float down under her as she opened her legs, marvelling at how absolutely wonderful it felt to stretch her renewed muscles and ligaments. Penetration was devine...but that was far they got before she ruined him.
"So weak!" she observed. That would never do. "I'll give you a loan," Angela offered, "But don't get used to it!"
Suddenly the man gasped as his muscles thickened and his stamina went through the roof. He felt himself heal, and then he discovered the immediate price of his loan. She took complete control of their love making, using him as little more than a sex doll. While he could feel his empowered muscles thrusting away with reckless abandon until they burned like hell, he could not slow himself, let alone stop for a break. After a half hour of this he was no longer enjoying himself.
"Please! I need...more!"
"What's that, honey? More? It would be MY pleasure." Though she could see his thoughts and knew exactly what he meant, Angela cruelly increased the effort he was putting in, her own much more powerful body relaxing into a harder and faster pace to match. It just felt so good...too good. She didn't want to stop. And she wasn't go to do anything she didn't want to anymore. Sadly, even her abilities had limits. She could have easily made the man more powerful, but would only have done so to delay what happened next. He cried out one last time, and collapsed. She felt him going, and took back not only what power she had lent but also the relatively tiny amount of energy that had been his.
Feeling quite satisified, Angela let the used up man drop thirty feet to the road while she ran her hands through her hair. THe tangles fell out, and her hair popped into a rather stylish, if very outdated do that she'd once liked. Appearing to dust herself off, Angela used another new ability to make herself a new dress.
"Time to get down to business," Angela mused, deciding to visit the unruly child. It would be fun to toy with her a little before crushing her mind...and taking all that new strength. Angela grinned at the thought. Once that girl was out of the way, she would have nothing else to do but further increase the size of her domain. Even as she sought Star out, Angela was thinking about which country to suck the life out of first...

"Hi" said Star.

She walked up behind Angella and tapped her politely on her shoulder.

"i hear you have developed some kind of complicated mental powers, not sure entirely...but well here we are Angella. somehow another immune, blah de blah...well life"

Rae looked up at angella-and it was up-she was probabbly a foot taller . She was perfect now...and after everything today, after seeing her from all Anglse. That was somehow very unatractive. Monsterious yes, but that was for what she-what she looked like-well there is the old joke of who do the 10s date if there to good for everyone else? Here was probabbly a 15-and well she had just raped a guy.

Rae shook her head smiling

"The point is---your going to have suck my blood old fashion style i think. That or crush me. Your choice, but i think i know what you want. to know what my real super powers-my real heart is"

Rae looked up extending her hands. she reached to her back and found the zipper. She pulled off the top of her red costume in the form of a lycra body suit, to show off her pert little breasts in a sports bra here toned but not muscle bound body. an attractive slightly small Asian Woman in the prime of life. She was an 8...but an honest 8.

"Make it easier." she smiled "and before you ask.....yes this is a trap"

Rae smiled relaxed a tad. Then she realized something. When she took off the top she had lost the 20 dollars.

Angela was actually a little disapointed to see that her quarry had, in the time since she had last seen her, gotten herself shitfaced. It sort of took the fun out of it. It was as though the girl had already admitted defeat, and therefore crushing her would more like taking candy from a baby.
"Look at you. That's the problem with kids these days. You'll find no answers in the bottom of a bottle, girl. But then...there are no answers for you, no solutions now that can save you from me."
Angela looked around, and her adoring worshippers started to get up and approach them. Their attention was focused on Star, and they did not look happy.
"Why should I even bother fighting you?" Angela wondered, stepping back and encircling Star with her minions.
As one the crowd moved forward, letting out a war cry as they lunged at Star and began attacking her, surging into her at Angela's silent command.
Angela suddenly felt a little woozey. Out of the corner of her eye she thought she caught sight of a strangely dressed woman...but she didn't sense anyone's presence and when she turned to look no-one was there. The dizziness came back, and the world around her jolted as though reality were a badly edited film. Angela's wooziness became outright nausea as she struggled to understand what was happening.

"That will be 17.84" said Rae as she she stood outside Murphys Large house holding a large bag of groceries. Actually Rae had to give her this. She consitently was a mean son of a bitch to the grocery delivery women, amd a general terrible human being---but for 17.84 it was a good size bag. For a woman who was probabbly one one of her wealthiest customers she sure was a miser, but good at streching things. God knows she wasn't going to get a tip..

The day was warm enough and a little sweaty Rae wanted to get out of the heat even though she was wearing a tanktop over her nut brown skin. To much sweating.

Angela took the bag of groceries into the kitchen and stood there for a time in silence. Her cats brought her out of it, rubbing against her leg to remind her that the bag contained their food. One thing they knew was where their food was.
"Alright! Just wait a damn a minute!"
One of the cats mewed softly, almost as if to say: "C'mon...don't be a bitch."
Angela flicked on the light. The feeling of deja-vu that came over her was frightening. Something happened...she was sure something was wrong. She should be somewhere else...but she had nowhere else to be. She looked up at the light. At least the mould hadn't come back. Wait...there was something about that...something wrong.
Shaking it off, always the skeptic, Angela fed her cats and went into the living room to sit down. She lifted and opened her aged copy of Orlando by Virginia Woolf to where she had left off, and resumed reading.

Rae walked away, holding a mixture of bills and coins. lots of coins. As she left store she had noted that the shuster house had called in, and the shuster house where big tippers-angela wasn't. With the amount of time that meant-well that means one of the other delivery girls had got the job.

Ahh well.

Lots of things you could complain about in life wasn't there? But it was life. she saw a cat walk past her. she moved down to pet it.....

And it scratched her hissing

Ahh well

Lots of things you could complain about in life wasn't there.

But as she left the house, she had college, her superhero career that may not be silly stupidity--a lot of things. ahh well...she had the sensation for just a second that the city was in profound danger-that it was being eaten alive....

But no.

It was just a warm semi crappy day. A car came by and splattered water across her as she got into her car.

Son of a bitch.

OOOC

And so i think ends the Murphy Rule Saga. Hope people liked it.

The idea of this thread was to play around with RP functions of Cape Hope. Hope people had fun reading it. If this is the kind of stuff you would be intrested in writing we whould be happy to help you do it. Its not hard.

We whould like to get more stories like this going-- Hope people want to do it.

As Castor has said, this little tale has come full circle. The main idea behind this story, as sort of implied in the title, is what happens when someone goes too far, when what can go wrong does go wrong. Thanks to the clever (and I can say that without being self-impressed, because it wasn't my idea) mechanic of having a character from the distant future monitoring events to prevent the end of the world and protect her timeline from deviations, it is possible to write just about any story with a character of any power level in the SWMU with no actual risk of long term damage. Whenever things go off track, it is quite easy to rectify. In this case the Warden has gone back in time and removed the mould from Angela's kitchen. Simple, yet effective. Also demonstrated in the story is how the alien fuel dumped around Cape Hope can enter the environment and give those exposed to one or two of these elements superpowers. In this case the mould was affected by a chemical in the mould remover, and breathed in by Angela through the rag. There's no set way in which these alien fuels can find their way to your character, and no set way in which your character might be altered by such exposure. This allows for great freedom in what you can write about in the SWMU.

Any chance we could get a peak at what would have happened if present day Angela had sensed what the Warden was trying to do (or absorbed their power along the way)?
