Yeah so you know, things went to hell pretty hard with the blood bank thing today.
A series of increasingly vindictive attacks by the Brotherhood against blood banks and hospitals forces the X-Men into the public eye to stop them, and hints at something bigger going on within the Brotherhood.
Part 1 (April 16-17, 2018)
News broke about the Mayo Clinic not accepting donation from visible mutants, to mixed reactions, of course. The Brotherhood had a particularly strong reaction, and attacked the blood bank, leading to a group of X-Men and trainees to head out and stop them. During the fight, they noticed that Magneto didn't seem to be anywhere in the area, and that Mystique was being particularly bossy, even for her. The group ended up spending the night in the area due to high tension - they wanted to be onsite in case anything happened.
Part 2 (April 28-August 2018)
Bolstered by the first protest, more anti-mutant activists came out and started going after clinics and hospitals who were publicly announcing they would accept mutant blood. The Brotherhood of Mutants, meanwhile started attacking anti-mutant hospitals. The X-Men and a few volunteers regularly staked out and patrolled hospitals they knew weren't accepting mutant blood, and managed to intercept a few of the attacks. SHIELD agents also covering the problem worked begrudgingly along side the X-Men once or twice, acknowledging that more hands were better. Sooraya was injured during one attack, and had a near-death experience where she reunited briefly with Yvette, who told her not to lose faith. It was an eye-opening experience for her (although a little bewildering to Angel).
The attacks began to taper off as other issues came to life, becoming background noise in the hum of chaos that was the world. It's still an on-going issue.
Trivia and Meta
This was originally meant to be a one-off event to most of the X-Men off-screen, but Sam and Zip were inspired and kidnapped the idea.
This was another unlogged plot, told largely through team and character posts.
