The Sixth Extinction

Character(s): Gabriel "Sylar" Gray and Claire Bennet
Summary: Building 26 is never shut down. No one convinces the president that it's best to just drop the matter of evolved humans, and Danko is given cart blanche to deal with the super-powered threat as he sees fit. In the next century the Evolved are hunted to the brink of extinction, either out-right exterminated, or imprisoned and exploited for their ability. The number of specials used in this way grows fewer and fewer as time and mishaps progress, but one type is still coveted above all. Exterminating a regenerator is exceedingly difficult, anyway...
Status: In progress/PRIVATE

...all my foolish, fuckin' wishing...Collapse )

"If you don't count Shenoy, it's been a while." Claire shrugged. "I got bored about a decade or so ago." She said truthfully. "Boys just stop impressing me after a while. Once I started seeing the same things over and over, I knew it was time to just hang it up. I have my own hands to take of any pleasuring I desire. No need to have to lie to another person to have them do it for me."

"Thats right, and you don't let yourself fall in love with them," he pressed his lips, understanding. "Eventually, even if the girl is still traditional and doesn't wNt to get intimate before some designated turning point, they all want their man to at least make some sort of sexual advance. They want to feel desired, even if they ultimately shoot me down.

"Sometime's my mind's not fully into it, but as you noticed, I want those I care about to be happy and feel good. So I don't mind lending a hand along with another body part or two," he shrugged. "If I care enough then even the pedestrian becomes pleasurable again."

"It's the same with men, only they don't really get why I'm not into it after a while." Claire agreed, frowning a little. "It's not that I don't like sex. It's pleasurable and everything, but so repetitive. What does a hundred-year-old woman get surprised of now-a-days? And trust me, I've tried to be surprised." She shook her head. "They're all just little boys to me now. I mean, there isn't anyone left on the planet who's been here longer than me."

"Aww, I'm sure there's some decrepit little Asian grandpa who's pushing one-fifty by now. Treesap for blood and wrinkled for days, but probably no libido by that point either," he chuckled as he teased her good naturely.

"Ha ha, very funny." Claire frowned, sticking out her tongue. "You know what I mean. Everyone is so... dumb. There really isn't any other way to put it. They freak out over the most ridiculous stuff and I know," She held up a hand to stop from interrupting her if he so chose, "I know that when I got out of Shenoy, I had a little freak out about my appearance and that is a stupid thing to be upset about, but it's one of the few things I have left.

"I like the attention without the attention and I think it's fun that I can still turn heads. I just don't like the people who's entire life is their looks. I won't ever lose them so over the years, I've come to notice that there are faaar more important things in life than beauty and money and all of that bullshit. I just don't understand how..."

Claire paused. She tilted her head and suddenly blushed... "I'm rambling. Sorry. I just haven't ever been able to talk about this... to anyone... ya know?"

"Yes, I do know," he smiled and walked over, sliding an arm around her waist and kissing the crown of her head. "I haven't had anyone to talk to, either, and I have about ten years on you still, even after a century. You'll always be younger than someone."

He winked down at her, not really bothered by the idea of being the oldest person alive, just so long at there was some one here through the ages with him.

Claire looked up at him and gave him a small, bashful smile. "That was actually really sweet." She grinned, turning in his arms to hug him. "I forgot what it was like to have someone understand me and all of my problems..."

She had honestly entirely forgotten about Sylar being older than her which in retrospect made her feel much much better about being so old. He would always be there, whether they liked each or not. He would be there.

"I'm a sentimental sort of guy, really," he smiled at her comment and the hug. "As well as a dirty old man, so it balances out. But a romantic, deep at heart."

"I would love to see you try to romance me." Claire laughed, squeezing the brunette's middle a bit. "It would be an interesting side to see." Though, the blond had a feeling that she'd already seen a good part of it. Sylar had been so good to her once they got past their awkward beginnings. She really liked being around him, but part of her was concerned that they would become an island, forgetting about the world around them.

As if on cue, the world decided to barge in on their moment. There was a knock on the door with a familiar and peppy woman waiting on the other side, ready to claim up the young interesting newcomer that Lexie had brought to the party.

Gabriel broke away to amswer the door, surprised to see the slim socialite so unexpectedly. "Hey! Tash! What's up?" it was cute to listen and watch as the brunette greeted her. He had the air of a little boy caught with his hand in the cookie jar.

"Hey, Lexie!" The woman smiled brightly and immediately fawned over the tall brunette, wrapping him in a warm hug. Claire actually thought it was rather adorable the way that people practically fell at Sylar's... or Lexie's... feet. The blond knew he was well liked and thought handsome. She wondered if Tash had a thing for him as well.

"Natasha! What brings you here?" Claire grinned, moving over to also give the woman a hug.

"I haven't heard a peep from you since the party! I've just been wondering how you are!" she was all brightness and friendly concern. "A girl like you's running a severe risk of stifling with this homebody..."

Jan. 19th, 2010 10:55 am (UTC)
"Oh no, we've been fine." Claire grinned. "S...Alex has been taking really good care of me." She smiled, working right through the slip as if it were just her tongue getting confused. "We were actually trying to figure out what to do today." Of course, the blond was thinking about just hanging out, but it seemed that there was a new player in the mix today.

"Well, I was wondering if you'd like to come out with me today. You can tell me all of Lexie and Sean's secrets." The woman giggled, though Claire got an uneasy feeling from that smile.

"Uh oh. Girls' day out? Hmm, not in that club," he smiled, but didn't notice anything off about his neighbor, perfectly willing to relinquish Claire to her if it kept their cover and gave the blonde something perhaps more entertaining to do.

"Right!" she nodded in enthusiastic agreement. "Not to mention there are some sitzen sales going on at the shopplex right now and as convenient as having a boy around to hold bags is? There is just some chatter that belongs between girls." she affirmed resolutely.

"I guess I could go." Claire smiled, looking over to Sylar for a moment before nodding. "Okay, yeah. Just let me get dressed." She grinned before padding off to the bedroom to get some clothes to go out in.

Natasha watched the girl go and gave Sylar a broad smile. "She's sweet, Lexie. She's not causing you too much trouble?"

"Oh, not at all," he smiled maybe just a little too readily. "Y'know, she's pretty self-entertaining or we just watch movies and stuff. She takes pretty good care of herself, even with Sean out of town," he tried to make it as normal and innocuous as possible. Tash wasn't biting, but for appearances didn't bother to call him out on it.

Of course, after his performance at Tash's party, nearly the whole building thought that Alex was now fooling around with Sean's little cousin. That was far more interesting and certainly more scandalous than the two men being homosexual.

When Claire returned, she was was wearing a pear of slim-fit jeans and a nicely fitting tee. Her hair was neatly pulled back into a ponytail and she only put on a basic foundation of make-up. She was back to looking like 'Claire the high-school cheerleader' all over again. Beautiful and simple. That's the way she like it most of the time.

"I'm ready." She smiled, pulling her purse over her shoulder.

"Great!" Tash fairly whisked the blonde out the door, kidnapping her to eventually pry the secrets of her involvement with the mysterious boy next door out over shoes and blended coffee. The girl owned a sportscar that was daisy yellow, a sleek machine that still required no human handling, thus sort of defeating its class purpose, but the model knew no better. "God, you look so fash, Claire," she admired her simple, effortless beauty. "No wonder all the boys make hungry puppy eyes at you."

Jan. 19th, 2010 08:13 pm (UTC)
"Aw. Thanks, but I'm nothing in your wake." The blond smiled genuinely enough at the model. She really did believe that Tash was a beautiful woman. She wasn't what Claire thought was personally attractive, but she was definitely lovely. "And you have the best wardrobe! Where'd you get that dress. It's totally the heat."

This was going to be fun, she could tell. Claire had no idea that Natasha might have some ulterior motives for the trip. The blond was just excited to be having some good times with a friend.

"Some shoot," she waved her hand dismissively about the dress. "Stylists let me keep the clothing some times. I have so many things I haven't even worn more than once." Yes, she was bragging. Just a little bit. Claire might have that natural, girl-next-door good looks, but Tash was professionally beautiful, and she was only going to be so modest about it in front of her rival.

Claire nodded, actually admiring a bit of that cockiness. She liked someone confident in their abilities, even if Tash's ability was to simply be beautiful. It wouldn't last her whole life, so the blond just let the young brunette have her pride.

"Oh, I wish I had a job like that. I'll probably end up stacking data drives at the library or something." She laughed, keeping up the appearance that she was in school. "Of course, after I get back to school. I really miss it. I was thinking of transferring out to Columbia University. They do have a better history program than UCLA." Of course, Columbia did have a spirit squad that wore the cutest shade of blue...

The girl's eyes flashed in Claire's direction slightly. This was not good. She had never felt so honestly threatened, even when Alex talked about Gwen. Gwen was never around, Tash was more than half convinced the woman never existed, but Claire was definitely and undeniably there, and now maybe to stay?

"A California girl? Are you sure you want to trade your flippies in for snow boots?" She arched one expertly groomed eyebrow.
invincibleblond
Jan. 20th, 2010 12:33 pm (UTC)
"Oh, I don't mind snow." Claire responded confidently. And she would need a reason to stay close to Sylar. Going to school and staying with family would be infinitely more believable. "And plus, I'd get to be around uncle Sean and Alex all the time. I never get to see my uncle. He's always on business."

The girl was starting to see that perhaps Tash was a little... maybe threatened by her? So, she decided to poke at the subject a bit. See what might come crawling out of the dark.

"And Alex is super ice. I haven't spent this much time with him since my mom died. He and Sean helped me and my daddy move to LA. God, I was like, eleven when I met him." Claire gushed the lie, loving making up these stories. It was the fun part about being a big ol' lie herself.

"He and my uncle Sean came all the way down to Texas to help me and daddy pick up after mum. While Sean handled my father and kept him together, Alex would play with me and take me to the movies..." She smiled, adding almost wistfully, "It's so nice to be with him again..."

Tash's enhanced lashes fluttered rapidly as Claire gushed before falling half-lidded over her dark chocolate eyes. "That's so sweet," she smiled a bit stiffly. "He must think of you like a little kid sister." She emphasized the familial aspect and Claire's age to make any other sort of arrangements sound ridiculous and perhaps even disgusting, implying an incestuous taboo to any potential relationship. Little did she know.

Jan. 20th, 2010 12:53 pm (UTC)
"I guess." It was there. Tash was threatened and Claire LOVED IT! There was a tiny little monster inside her that began doing a tiny little dance as this tiny little detail came to front. Of course, the taboo of their relationship was FAR worse than the likes of Natasha would ever know, but it was entertaining non-the-less.

Then there was a part of the blond that felt that she had a right to Sylar before anyone else. It was probably what made her so angry at Gwen without ever meeting the woman. Sylar was her nightmare and non one else's. It was a strange way to feel, but after feeling so many things over the years, taboo and naughty had a tinge of newness to it that Claire rarely got to experience.

"He's been rather protect of me." She smiled. "Like when Kreiger decided that he wanted to know about my lady parts." Claire giggled. "It took me hours just to get him to calm down. Though the wine didn't help." She grinned. "He's entirely too cuddly after he drinks..."
