[Peter has been fighting throughout the city for too long. He'd started out in Queens, as he usually did, but the aliens had come in such harsh droves he'd been forced back, steadily, towards Manhattan. The worst part was, though, he hadn't seen most of the regular heroes. At least, not enough to get any assistance. Even though he was a spider-human and could more than hold his own against these aliens, at some point, you just gave way to exhaustion. They had the upper hand in numbers, and Peter lost a little ground with each fight.

He's been saving civilian after civilian too, and this man is no different. A quick web to the front of the man's suit and Peter hauls him up into the air, out of the way of flaming debris, arm tight around the guy's waist as he swings them around the next corner.]


Need a lift?
kiljoy: (aka tortured)

[personal profile] kiljoy 2016-05-03 10:04 pm (UTC)(link)
[...Well, it appears as if he's being given a lift whether he wants one or not. It's hard to pick the scariest thing about this situation. Is it the invasion by actual, literal aliens? Is it the destruction, the danger, the what now seems inevitable defeat? Is it being plucked from the ground by a costumed stranger and flung through the air at alarming speed?

Kilgrave votes all of the above, and add a bonus of the aliens being immune to his mind control. Alien biology, inability to speak English, whatever the cause he's as helpless as he could possibly be and that scares him more than anything.

So excuse him if he sounds a bit panicky.]


Take me somewhere safe! Now!

[And don't drop him, oh Jesus Christ he shouldn't have looked down...]
spideyguy: (SM Crawl)

[personal profile] spideyguy 2016-05-03 10:37 pm (UTC)(link)
What do you think I'm doing?

[Peter, on the other hand, is easily manipulated. Spider bite didn't change the base humanity of him, and he continued swinging, racing down the streets, zigging and zagging.]

You injured anywhere?

[He catches them on the side of a building, watching as a patrol of the alien creatures flies past, missing them. With one hand, they scale the building to the rooftop, and Peter helps the man over the edge before hopping up himself.]
kiljoy: (aka what the fuck)

[personal profile] kiljoy 2016-05-04 07:37 pm (UTC)(link)
[Kilgrave pretty much flops on to the roof of the building, pressing his back up against the wall while he catches his breath.]

Nothing major.

[A few bruises and scrapes, that's about it. The dizziness he's feeling after their mad dash through the city is harder to shake off right now. He swallows, mouth dry.]

For the record, I don't count this as safe. You need to take me out of this city. Away from these creatures.
spideyguy: (Hmph)

[personal profile] spideyguy 2016-05-04 07:56 pm (UTC)(link)
[Peter crouches beside him, poking at a bleeding gash on his own thigh. A quick, sparse webbing and it was sufficently wrapped. He'd have to go grab more of his pellets soon; he was running a little low.]

What I need to do and what I can do are two separate things. [He wanted to - he'd want to, anyway, even without compulsion, wanted everyone to be as safe as possible - but he couldn't.] They've got New York surrounded. There's one barricade left, I think, past the Avengers line.
kiljoy: (aka that's news)

[personal profile] kiljoy 2016-05-04 08:03 pm (UTC)(link)
[Well, that's not good. He looks sideways at his rescuer.]

So there's no way out? Not even for you?
spideyguy: (SM Crawl)

[personal profile] spideyguy 2016-05-04 08:30 pm (UTC)(link)
There might be, but it would be pretty dangerous.

[Peter allows himself a second of reprieve, exhaling deeply and stretching out his legs on the roof.]

There are just so many.
kiljoy: (aka understanding)

[personal profile] kiljoy 2016-05-04 08:36 pm (UTC)(link)
[Yeah, no kidding. Even this short reprieve surely can't last for long; the intruders are everywhere. Kilgrave frowns.]

Tell me. I want to know what my options are.

[There has to be some way out. This guy can literally fly through the air, don't tell him there aren't any options.]
spideyguy: (SM Closeup)

[personal profile] spideyguy 2016-05-05 01:09 am (UTC)(link)
1) Head downstairs and start running. 2) I could try to carry you to the barricade, but I might have to stop and fight the way through. [Peter counts them off on his fingers, wincing and rolling his shoulder. He popped it earlier and had to put it back, but it still felt a little weird.] 3) Jump off the building, if you're into the whole Orson Welles thing.
kiljoy: (aka poker face)

[personal profile] kiljoy 2016-05-07 01:47 pm (UTC)(link)
[Why do all these options sound shit? He sighs heavily. Staying here will do no good; the city is as good as gone. Hiding can only be temporary. He needs to get out.]

Take me to the barricade. Make sure we both get out in one piece, and don't stop for anyone else.

[No wasting time saving people. You guys in masks are notorious for it.]
spideyguy: (Talking 2)

[personal profile] spideyguy 2016-05-08 04:23 am (UTC)(link)
Can do.

[Something about that struck Peter as odd, but he did want to see the guy safe, so he didn't clock it completely. Instead, he stood up, stretching out his back. Had to stay limber in the end times.]

Ready? No screaming, either. Please, spare the super hearing.
kiljoy: (aka understanding)

[personal profile] kiljoy 2016-05-08 03:47 pm (UTC)(link)
[Oh, God. He may well regret this. Kilgrave is all too aware that his life is literally in this one man's hands. There's zero guarantee that the stranger will be able to protect him, even with his super powers.

But the longer they stay here, the more likely they are to be found. So he stands up too, bracing himself, and nods.]


Ready.
spideyguy: (SM Closeup)

[personal profile] spideyguy 2016-05-08 06:46 pm (UTC)(link)
[Could you have picked a weirder ride? Probably not. He's the guy that does backflips through the air in a bright red costume.

Peter holds out his hand, beckoning Kilgrave forward.]


Can you hold on tight enough or should I web you?
kiljoy: (aka let's be reasonable)

[personal profile] kiljoy 2016-05-08 07:27 pm (UTC)(link)
[Well, they're in a city being invaded by aliens for the second time so weird is relative. Kilgrave steps forward, taking the other man's hand, and prepared to grab on to him as soon as he sets off.]

I'll hold on.

[If he gets shot down, he doesn't want to be stuck to the guy.]
spideyguy: (SM Closeup)

[personal profile] spideyguy 2016-05-08 07:31 pm (UTC)(link)
Suit yourself.

[Peter shrugs, pulling him against his chest and shooting a web to the next building in one fluid motion. He was practiced at it, at least.]

Eat my shorts, aliens!

[He's also one of the more mouthy heroes on the street. Does wonders for swinging by unnoticed.]
kiljoy: (aka tortured)

[personal profile] kiljoy 2016-05-08 07:39 pm (UTC)(link)
[Oh my god, is he an idiot? What kind of superhero calls out to the aliens, practically asking for their attention? Kilgrave clings on for dear life, trying not to look down. Fuck, this is horrible.]

Don't provoke them! We're trying not to attract attention.

[Granted, the red costume isn't helping. Why couldn't he be dressed in grey?]
spideyguy: (Webshooter)

[personal profile] spideyguy 2016-05-08 07:43 pm (UTC)(link)
[It's possible. And hey, he's a "public menace", so what the hell? Besides, just because he can't stop to help people doesn't mean he can't take the aliens' attention away from the people they're terrorizing.]

I mean, speak for yourself.

[He doesn't call out again, though, flipping them through the air and down another street. It's a fair few miles to the other side of Manhattan, but at least this area seems to have thinned out a bit.]

By the way, am I gonna get a name from you, or?
kiljoy: (aka what the fuck)

[personal profile] kiljoy 2016-05-08 07:53 pm (UTC)(link)
Now really isn't the time.

[It's spoken through gritted teeth. Give him a break, he's hanging on here trying not to fall to a horrible death while at any moment they might get shot down by aliens. Also he really thinks you should be concentrating on saving their lives.]
spideyguy: (SM Closeup)

[personal profile] spideyguy 2016-05-08 07:55 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm trying to distract you so you don't barf. You're not going to barf, are you?

[Nah, it's fine. Another beam of whatever energy those aliens were using nearly hit them, but Peter just twisted them out of the way and down a side alley.]

My usual dry cleaner is buried in rubble at the moment.
kiljoy: (aka tortured)

[personal profile] kiljoy 2016-05-08 08:03 pm (UTC)(link)
[For the record, that sudden sharp turn doesn't help. Kilgrave's stomach lurches and he closes his eyes, trying to breathe. Even that's hard at the speed they're going, the wind rushing through his ears.]

Doing my best.

[He isn't even barking orders, that's how bad this is.]
spideyguy: (SM Crawl)

[personal profile] spideyguy 2016-05-08 08:10 pm (UTC)(link)
You'll be fine. I won't drop you.

[There's only one person he's ever dropped, and it wasn't even him who dropped her.]

Woah, okay, chill!

[This is shouted back to the aliens who attempt to knock them out of the sky with another, for lack of a better word, laser beam. Peter takes evasive countermeasure and lets them slow a little to double back and take a different street.]
kiljoy: (aka let's be reasonable)

[personal profile] kiljoy 2016-05-08 08:20 pm (UTC)(link)
[Somehow this isn't massively reassuring. Is it nearly over yet? Still clinging on, Kilgrave closes his eyes, hoping to god they'll reach the edge of the city soon.]
spideyguy: (SM Crawl)

[personal profile] spideyguy 2016-05-08 08:26 pm (UTC)(link)
[Peter's whistling now, vaulting over a squad of the aliens and ducking them around another corner. Nearly, but it's getting a little hairier. He could hear the Hulk roaring to the West of them, so that was a good sign.

There's a mob of civilians below them, and that's how Peter knows they've found it. He lands on another roof, knees absorbing the brunt of the landing.]


Well that was a close one. How you doing...Bob? George? Adam?
kiljoy: (aka that's news)

[personal profile] kiljoy 2016-05-08 08:40 pm (UTC)(link)
[Land. Finally. Well, a roof, but it'll do. He drops to the ground, waiting for his heart rate to slow down.]

Kilgrave. You are?
