May was an eventful month for Nathan Dayspring and Moira MacTaggart. It started out with MacInnis luring Nathan away from the mansion for a weekend for deprogramming. The next week, Nathan had a vision that rocked the foundations of the mansion and inspired a number of students’ dreams. Though this burnt out his precognition, it sent the two and a half million voices directly into his head, and the Askani psis occasionally overpowered him and took control of his powers. Shortly after, Nathan and Moira headed up to Muir on business with the Pack and were attacked by a small group of soldiers. Towards the end of the month, without Nathan’s permission, Askani managed to convince a very skeptical and reluctant Manuel to let her empaths train him. The month ended with Nathan preparing an Askani music archive with Alison, and writing up syllabi for new classes he would be teaching in the fall.
May’s other big event was the battle of the Jamie Madroxes. After Jamie was nearly killed the previous September during hurricane relief, a dupe managed autonomy and was recruited by Mystique and Magneto. Half-crazed and desperate to be the “true” Jamie, “ Skippy” sent some of his own dupes to kidnap Artie and Miles, knocked out and lured away the staff, and faced Jamie in a battle for control. With Kitty's help, Jamie reabsorbed Skippy, and a number of students rescued the kids. Reactions ranged from the sympathetic to the distraught to the morbid.
Angelo decided to visit Sarah Morlocke and Shinobi Shaw in Boston, and started to organize a trip with Pete’s approval. All was going well until Manuel voiced his interest, which led Clarice and Angelo to publicly complain about him. Most people didn’t take sides and pointed out how both parties were at fault, despite explanations and pleas about their positions. The trip ultimately happened, with Manuel in attendance thanks to Emma's suggestions/manipulations.
On the relationship front, there were a number of upheavals. Shiro thought that Kwannon's seduction translated to Betsy's attraction to him, but was told otherwise. Marie-Ange made a few attempts to get Doug away from his work, and was met with resistance each time.
