November saw the return of two old faces - Sooraya Qadir came back to complete her schooling, and Warren Worthington, his relationship with Piotr Rasputin ended, came back to rejoin the X-Men and to make a new life for himself. He started in fine form, flirting with old friend Amanda Sefton and more seriously with the emotionally unstable Jay Guthrie, who wasn't sure how to react. Morgan Lennox began seeing Alexander Lexington casually and Manuel de la Rocha was brutally frank with Carmilla Black about their relationship and her inability to drop her attitude even with him.
Julian Keller was disowned by his father following his purchase of a car for a self birthday present; Julian took this extremely badly and his friends Doreen Green and Nico Minoru tried their best to be there for him. Also in the realms of fathers, Catseye became curious about hers, striking a deal with Yvette Petrovic, questioning the circumstances behind her kidney transplant, to research their respective fathers, albeit carefully.
Amanda continued to caution Nico about her Staff of One, warning her to use it only when necessary due to the nature of its magic. Callie Betto and Klara Prast were pushed to use their mutual cholorkinetic powers against a strange plant on a botanical field trip which tried to eat Catseye and Adrienne Frost found curiosity can nearly kill the cat when she inadvertently Read one of Remy LeBeau's staffs and was confronted with a graphic image of one of Gambit's 'games'. Fred Dukes - Phase 1, having problems with his own powers, enlisted the help of Angelo Espinosa, whose powers weren't dissimilar and David Haller for some psionic tuition. Things went badly, Fred's powers going out of control and leaving him in a coma. Having established that the boy needed time to mentally heal, Charles Xavier arranged for him to go to Muir Island Research Facility. Callie, Fred's girlfriend, took the incident especially badly, her coldness confusing many of her fellows and driving Julian to call her out on it on the journals.
The X-Men found themselves stretched to the limit when a mass break-out of mutant prisoners during a prison transfer to the Vault resulted in the escape of many old foes, including Toad, Infectia and members of the Brotherhood of Mutants, Magnetic North and the Mutant Liberation Front. SHIELD and the X-Men managed to recapture a number of escapees, but many remain at large.
And finally, the New Mutants had another drama-filled dramatic production, this time when Regan Claremont, a young mutant with illusion powers and a grudge against Kurt Sefton, used her powers to send the production of Jeckyll and Hyde 'back in time', goading Nicholas Gleason to lose control of his wolf form. Fortunately, Nick's girlfriend, Catseye, was able to talk him back to humanity and Regan managed to slip away in the confusion.
Nov 1 - In the very early morning, a drunken Manuel comes home and encounters Cammie and he tells her some truths about their relationship. Kyle is confused about the decorations at the party the night before. Jennie posts about beating her birthday curse.

Kurt posts about his return from Germany and his sister Jimaine's 20th birthday. Fred emails Haller and Angelo mentioning the similarity between his power and Angelo's and asks for some help with telepathic therapy. Amanda and Nico meet to discuss magic and Amanda recommends that the younger witch use her staff as little as possible. Catseye runs into Yvette returning from a kidney checkup at the medlab and their discussion ends in the two agreeing to find more about their fathers. In Nico's exploring, she finds Jay in the greenhouse and startles him. He barely stops from lopping her head off before she leaves. Jay leaves to see Hank about extracting cactus needles from his hand and talks to Hank about apologizing to Nico and going on some anti anxiety medications. Later, Jay goes to see Nico in her suite to apologize and she makes a point to clean herself up before trying to help him focus on the management of his instinct control. It doesn't go well and Jay leaves before he does something he'll regret.
Nov 3 - Emma, Valentia and Manuel have dinner and when Emma subtley questions his loyalty to the White Court, Manuel takes his sister and leaves.

Nov 4 - Angelo and Fred are linked together telepathically by Haller to work on Fred's telepathic therapy, but the idea backfires when Fred's body inflates and refuses to hold a shape; he slips into a coma and Angelo and Haller get him to Hank in the medlab.

Amanda and Doug teach Laurie about being on a team and trust as well as combat, before relocating to Silver to lower her inhibitions and let loose a little in the most unorthodox way. Before Adrienne is to meet Morgan, she sees Remy and accidently reads his staff, going through a part of his past she would have rather not seen and threatens to call the police. Adrienne emails Emma and asks her sister to mind wipe that event with Remy. She also messages Morgan and asks for a raincheck.
