Moving Day [14 Nov 2009|11:47pm]
"Enh... enh!" Mason grunted as he dragged the duffel bag behind him by it's straps, his favorite toolkit and another bag already tucked under his arms as he approached the main entrance. This was it. Alpha Flight. The big leagues.

Well, eventually the big leagues. There was a lot of training, and he knew he'd have to tow the line. But dude! He was going to be a superhero! For his country! Alpha Flight was like... like... the Avengers! Only Canadian.

This was gonna be awesome. He pressed the buzzer on the door, waiting to be let in.
