View Full Version : DTL Season 4-Week 7 (Set 1)
07-06-2006, 10:54 PM
This is one of four threads, each containing two match ups.
The threads will be in use for 6 days.
Days 1-4 (Thursday-Sunday) are strictly setup time for owners to plead their cases, tell us their team’s strategies, breakdown the match ups, and do whatever else they can/want to do to try and convince you that their team would pull out a victory. Please, let the owners do this on their own with no help from you, the fan.
When Day 5 (Monday) rolls around, I’ll post and tell everyone that voting may begin. Only after doing so will voting start. Any votes cast before I open voting will not count.
To vote, look over the matchups and read the owners strategies and take them into consideration. Afterwards, use your best judgment to decide who you think has the best chance to win the match up and post up the teams you think will prevail.
(Note: The length of a writeup is up to the owner. Do not punish owners just for having a shorter writeup.)
To vote, give each writeup a score out of 10, with the team you feel winning the match earning the higher score. No tie votes are allowed, one team must get a higher score, even if only by a single vote.
Remember, to vote for each match up or your vote will not count!
The teams with the highest vote total at the end of the 6th day (Tuesday) will get a W while the other will get an L.
The battleground for this week is: The sinking, unpopulated, Titanic.

Order & Chaos
Silver Sorceress (http://my.execpc.com/~icicle/DRFATE.html), Proctor (http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix/earthmoeb01.htm), Dr. Fate (Kent Nelson) (http://captain.custard.org/league/php/profile.php?id=silversorceress), Scarlet Spider (http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix2/proctorgatherers.htm), Silver Surfer (Earth M) (http://www.samruby.com/Heroes/ScarletSpider/scarletspider.htm)
Ben Reily walks down the corridor, awe on his face at what he is seeing. This is the real thing. The real Titanic! Everything is in pristine condition, the only thing missing is the people. For the last few minutes, Ben's explored a bit of the ship and found no passengers, which he decides is a good thing. A large wave hits the ship, rocking it, knocking off a vase onto Ben's foot.
"Ouch..." he looks down, and a few things shock him. First, that was not his voice. Second, it's not his boot he is looking at. And third, his spider-sense never kicked in. Ben looks at his hands, and they aren't his. He looks at the rest of the costume. "No. No no no nononono..." Ben runs into a room and looks into the mirror only to see... "AH man! What the ****!?! Why him?!?" That's when Ben hears a scream, a man screaming. He rushes outside and follows the noise onto the deck, only to find Dr. Fate curled up against a wall, shouting and waving his arms around.
Laura: "Shut up, shut up, shut up! What's going on?!?"
Ben: "Fate? Fate. What's wrong?"
Laura: "Proctor? What's happening? Why, why are you calling me Fate? Why am I wearing his helmet. And why won't this voice shut up?"
Ben: Grabs Fate by the shoulders and shakes him. "Who are you?" he demands.
Laura: "Nabu," he shakes his head, "no I not!" she says to nobody. "It's me, Laura Nelson, the Silver Sorceress. What's happening to me Proctor?"
Ben: "Please stop calling me that. It's me, Ben. I'm stuck in this bastard's body, and your stuck in Fate's. And it sounds like Nabu is trying to get into your head like he takes over Fate's."
Laura: "Ben? Ben is it really you?...Get. Out. Of. My. Head!" She rips off the helmet and slides down the wall to sit down and enjoy having her mind to herself again. "What's going on?"
Kent: "Nabu can be...overzelous. Especially when he encounters a new Fate," a familiar voice says.
Laura: Looks up in shock to see a very familiar face. "Oh my god!"
Kent: "That's what I thought as well. Nothing like being in a new body, and a new gender, to throw off your day.
Ben: "I bet."
Kent: "Might want to wipe that look off your face."
Ben: "What? Oh, right. No mask."
Laura: "So..." she says, trying to get her mind to calm down, "so, where are the others?" The sky explodes with light and power as a silver streak zooms by.
Ben: "I'd say there's one of them now."
Dane: Whips through the air, relishing the pure energy and power pouring through his new body. "I never knew! I never realized. I feel so powerful!" Whitman laughs as he rips across the sky. He then sees the Scarlet Spider, crouched on the bow of the boat, sticking to the railing. Whitman dives down, ready to tear into the teammate that had been such a thorn in his side only to notice that the Spider has his mask off, tears running down his face. Whitman floats level to his teammate. "I...I don't understand."
Norrin: "I can feel again," he says simply. "I can feel. I'm alive!"

Ben: "So, what if their minds didn't get changed?"
Dane: "Then we die."
Ben: "Nice. And if we guess whoose minds went into whose body wrong?" Dane just looks at him with those cold, silver eyes. "Yeah. That's what I thought."
Dane: Shakes his head. "I still cannot believe you are...polluting...my body with your mind."
Ben: "I can't believe your polluting my mind with your body," Ben says, sticking his tounge out at him.
Kent: "That's enough! We've been practicing for the almost whole time. We'll be fine."
Ben: "That's a load of bull, right?"
Kent: "...Yeah. Kind of hard to be as confident when Nabu's not helping me out. Speaking of which, how are you coping Laura. I must say that your powers are..."
Kent: "Well, yes. I didn't want to say it."
Laura: "It's ok. To me, your magic is so...orderly. And the raw power..."
Kent: "And Nabu?"
Laura: "I'm trying not to fight him like you advised. Just let him use me like he does you. But it's so..."
Laura: "I didn't want to say it," she says, smiling. She takes a deep breath and puts on the helm. She loses her balance for a moment, but Norrin, in the Spider's body, grabs her shoulders to keep her standing. "Thank you," she says, her voice not quite sounding like it just did.
Norrin: Smiles. "You are welcome." Norrin turns to Ben. "This spider-sense of yours, it's quite...intriguing. Almost like my cosmic awareness."
Dane: "I doubt it. From just what you've shown me in this short time...it is amazing. I cannot believe you are ever defeated."
Norrin: "Do not become over-confident. It will be your undoing."
Dane: "Do not concern yourself. I shall not fall."
Ben: Whispers to Norrin, "Too late."
Laura: Whips her head up. "No," she says. Everyone looks at her questioningly until the ship swiftly shifts to the side and shudders. Ear splitting groans tear into the air.
Ben: "It's happening!"
Kent: "Can you stop it?"
Laura: "No, I'm trying. But nothing."
Kent: "Dammit! Looks like we're going to have to do this the hard way."
Ben: "So...what's so different about that?"

Prep time 1
The one where we figure out who's who
Mon dieu... where's the skrull cruiser that hit me. My head is... hmmm... pointy? And dis may be a serious case of a hangover, but I don't remember my hands having 4 fingers. Or burning...
But it doesn't hurt. Dis is tres, mais tres bizarre. Where de hell am I anyway? Fancy place. Looks like ship... a sinking ship. No, waitaminute! I remember dis. Rogue made me watch dis ridiculous film only a bajillion times. I'm on the Titanic. Which means that somewhere around here dere's a big honkin' jewel! Damnit Gambit, focus.
You are on a sinking ship, in an alien body. Oh, somebody is coming. Wonder Woman comes crashing through the doors. She looks around like a madwoman. Looking for something, tearing up the furniture. She spots me. FLies over and tries to grab me by the neck, but I go intangible and she flies through. Must be an instinct thing.
- CAMERA! Tell me you have a camera!!! she screams.
- What?! I ask bewiledered.
- I need a camera! Like... right now!!!!
- Dere are no cameras here you idiot. Dis is the Titanic. They didn't have the technology yet.
He blinks a couple of times, I say he because I am sure this is Deadpool I am talking to, and then:
- ARE YOU F@$%ING KIDDING ME!? I am in Wonder Woman's body, and please excuse me while I have an orgasm just saying that phrase... Uuuh... and I can't get it on film!? You have any idea how many views I can get on youtube with this ****!? Oh what the hell am I talking to you for. There must be an old, crappy antique camera somewhere on this ship. Even an old black and white movie of Wonder Woman is valuable, and might get featured.
She, or he, tries to leave but I wrap myself around him.
- You have to wait here Wade. Dere is still a game going on. We have to regroup with the rest of the team. Besides, I can't let you abuse Diana's body. She would kill us both.
- To coin a popular slang expression, "ya damn skippy", we hear someone say from behind us.
Well this is a sight, me... My eyes glowing red... A lamp explodes to my left. The chandaleer starts glowing.
- Diana, if that's you. You need to calm down.
- Calm down? When my body is controled by the most perverse and insane person that I know?
- I'm the most perverse person you know? WonderPool asks bewildered, but at least he stropped struggling. I'm getting all choked up over here, and I'm not just saying that because your gstring is riding up my butt.
- Surely you mean my butt! Gambit Woman shrieks.
- Where are Fernus et Will o the Wisp? I ask, trying to change the subject.
- Why are you asking us? You're the telepath, Diana points out.
Uncroyable. All my life I've avoided telepaths. Only to become one. I'm a little apprehensive about going inside people's heads. But it must be done.
- So how do I do it?
- That is something you must discover for yourself, while I instruct Deadpool about handling my body.
- Just be careful with my body, and try to stay calm. We don't want this ship to blow up.
While Diana and Wade chase eachother around the room. I focus on the names of my teammates. My head fills with memories dat aren't mine, images of a lab, and explosion. It's all very confusing. I retreat when I realise that my presence is hurting Wisp. He got the message however. Seems he's in Deadpool's body and not to happy about it. Dat leaves Fernus who should be in Wisp's body, unless other surprises are in store.
Behind me, Wonder Pool has managed to lasso Gambit Woman.
- A-hA! Finally. I get to ask you the ultimate question! Are you a lesb...
He doesn't get to finish the sentence because a good chunk of the floor he was standing on blows up. He falls through and I hear my own familiar giggle.
Dis is going to be a loooong jour.
Deadpool is in Wonder WOman's body.
Wonder Woman is in Gambit's Body.
Gambit is in Fernus's Body.
Will o the Wisp is in Deadpool's Body
Fernus is in Will o the Wisp's body.
To be continued.
