2003: Jamie's parents visit for Christmas. Manuel wakes from his coma.
2005: While hiding out in the lab from the war zone in his suite, Forge gets a surprise visit from Paige, who makes sure he gets some rest. Sleep is less than good, and a rather damning confession is made. Kurt and Nathan meet at Harry's and commiserate about being the sons of supervillains. Bobby goes to Lorna's suite for some advice and sympathy. He gets plenty of both, but still doesn't know what to do about the mess his relationship is in. Shortly after Forge emerges from the lab after the suite's less than civil discussion of Tommy, a still somewhat preoccupied Marius has an astonishingly untraumatic meeting with Miles in the kitchen, and also half a sandwich. Forge has a proposal for Scott regarding a possible prosthesis. Scott is uncertain, but willing to listen. Lorna plays her part in the action against Magneto. In Giving Of Ourselves: Terry prepares to record her first professional single. Alison is on hand as her producer. Tommy makes the perfectly innocent mistake of opening his door just as Rachel, on a mad dash for freedom, floats by. Rachel proceeds to be very cute; thankfully, Domino wanders by and retrieves the evil telepathic baby. Doug comes down to Scott's office with a bunch of stuff on his mind, and Scott manages to clear things up for him. Haroun's down in the Gym for a light workout when he comes across Domino in the middle of her own workout. They just can't seem to leave each other alone, things get hot, then the heavy weights and the heavy words drop and Haroun checks into Medical. This leads Alison to shriek at Nathan for not keeping Domino under control. Wanda starts to feel the affects of having the entire history of the Clan dropped into her head in one go. Or, well, she would if she was completely conscious. Nathan finds her in the midst of some late night writings and it takes a bit to shake her loose.
2006: Nathan gives Medusa her Christmas gift and she tells him Crown Prince Blackagar Boltagon wishes to talk to him about Elpis. The various Snow Valley staff members bemoan their lost Christmas plans and proceed to get very drunk instead. Students query the beaten up condition of the staff. Crystal surprises Medusa with Blackagar's secret arrival to the school to be Medusa's date at the Winter Ball and he and Nathan have that talk. Winter Ball - the students have their semi-formal ball and there's a lot of kissing. Alex and Lorna talk, rather awkwardly, and then later Alex gets drunk with Shiro and they end up making out. Angelo and Marie talk about him challenging Logan during Fight Night.

An over-caffeinated Sarah makes a frantic journal entry about her newfound love for Red Bull. Maddie shares a YouTube video from her flight back home. Amanda sends Meggan an Amazon package of both the Harry Potter movie and book sets for her birthday. Tandy seeks out Topaz to ask for a favour.
