|The Unwritten Alliance
Personal isn't the same as important, and making this personal goes down a path that you don't get to step off of. Genosha wants to stop us, stop Xaviers, make sure what we do here never gets in their way again.
Xavier’s is at war, whether they wish it or not.
X-Men: Scott Summers, Jean Grey, Lorna Dane, Sam Guthrie, Kurt Sefton, Angelica Jones, Tabitha Smith, Sharon Smith, Jean-Phillipe Colbert, Alexander Lexington, Theresa Cassidy, David Haller, Clarice Ferguson, Kyle Gibney, John Allerdyce, Paige Guthrie, Vance Astrovik
After Charles posts an update about the Genosha's 'deal' and who has gone missing, various actions are undertaken and plans are made. The senior people from the X-Men, X-Factor and X-Force all sit down with Professor X to discuss the merits of action against Genosha. In the end, they all decide that they will need every hand on deck in order to free their people from Genosha, so they start preparing.
After Kurt pondering about showing the Genoshans who Magneto really is by contacting his mother, people reacts in various ways. After some discussion, Remy posts a reminder for people not to react blindly and get carried away by their anger since it would only play into the Genoshans' hands, and only get more people in trouble. He finishes by promising that there will be a plan, and that Xavier's will get their people back.
Jean Grey makes a roll call request to all those not easily accessible at the Mansion, or whom have not already checked in after the wake of what happened at the protest. Various arrangements to made sure everyone is safe: all former associates in Attilan are secured with security increased while Kurt's and Amanda's family goes into hiding for example.
The score is upped even more when Moira MacTaggart calls Charles panicking: Rachel has disappeared, both from Muir and from their psychic link. Charles posts to let everyone know the Genoshans have kidnapped Rachel Dayspring.
Over the days various discussions take place and people find support with each other as X-Force and X-Factor prepares to infiltrate Genosha. Jubilee and Nico infiltrate as part of a Japanese tourist group, while Marie-Ange and Vanessa sneak into Genosha on a cruise ship. Doug and Emma arrive on Genosha for a business trip and Bishop and Ororo pretend to be Wakandan investors. Remy and Wanda masquerade as magicians while Callisto and Amanda, pretending to be backpackers, check into a Genoshan Hostel. Finally Wade and North arrive together in Genosha. While doing some investigating though Vanessa's powers end up acting strange.
In the mean time prison escapees Sooraya, Artie and Jean-Paul have found each other in the city and are trying to figure out their next move and how to survive in the city.
Trivia and Meta

The events of this plot still occurred in Phase 2, but specifics, such as which characters were involved, remain fuzzy for the purposes of not breaking the world. ;)
