But are Jane and Geecee the same?
Sometimes the line seems... confusing.
Jane's small apartment has a second closet she keeps all of Geecee's clothes in. She doesn't want it bleeding over into her home time.
Growing up, her powers manifested early on, power draining in her bedroom as young as the age of four. Lamps would pop light bulbs and the little girl would be found giggling and sparking in her bedroom, the mattress or wall singed nearby. Bath times were just as bad. Long-term exposure to water, coupled with any accidental discharge at one point left the tiles in the bathroom warped and a young Jane terrified after having passed out for a few seconds. It took several weeks before she was able to take baths after that, the interim filled with lots of bribery for quick showers and wash downs with soapy washcloths.
With parents under the stress that they were, they couldn't handle having a 'different' child, and every effort was made to ignore her powers, and in time to teach her not to use them. To suppress them. They weren't wanted in the house, and Jane quickly learned that they only made things worse for her. Her brother was the clear favorite of the twins, being more normal, though he never let it come between them. He helped her figure out how to ground her powers and keep from using them at home or school.
It wasn't until she met Tobias in fourth grade that things began to shift toward the other side of her. School had always been an escape. She was decent at it, away from the stress of her broken home, and slowly discovering a knack with computers. Between losing herself in books and finding she had an ease with understanding computer programming and locating data on the drives and internet, Jane was all too happy to be at school.
Tobias, the class nerd, befriended her in fourth grade. They bonded over books and soon progressed into other topics. Tobias came from a tight-knit family and when he found out how messed up hers was, they grew all the tighter, his mother inviting her to a fourth of July picnic to get away for a bit. Jane jumped at the opportunity. In the middle of the party, Jane and Tobias wandered around the park, meandering back through the woods toward the lake to talk. While Jane had not learned to swim, she was willing to sit on the dock with him and chat, their legs hanging in the water. Too much goofing around left the girl falling in, her powers triggering in reaction to her fear. The overloading power reacted with the water around her and Jane passed out, sinking into the lake just before Tobias reached her and pulled her to shore.
After that, she told him everything. He was fascinated. And more supportive than anyone she had in her family, including her brother. He encouraged her to stop hiding that part of herself, though Jane couldn't bring herself to do that. Her father and his wife were getting ready to have another child. She couldn't risk jeopardizing anything with that relationship by suddenly acting like a Tesla coil.
Though he would bring it up now and then, it wasn't until her senior year that Tobias talked her into at least -trying- something. Genius that he was, he had ordered a pair of gauntlets off of the internet and then reworked the internal system into something that Jane could feasibly power with her own siphoned energy. He planted it in front of her and demanded she humor him, grinning like an idiot. After a good half hour of cajoling, he was still grinning when Jane put a one foot wide hole in his basement wall. With a squeal, she quickly pulled it off and stepped away, not sure that she could do anything like that. Even if it did feel good to actually be using her mutation instead of simply grounding it constantly.
The seed was planted. It began to grow. Between the two of them, the other identity was born. Bright colors, a wig. Contacts. Goggles to subtly shift the angles on her face for facial recognition. Shoes to add several inches to her height. ... lots of practice to change how she presented herself. Boots to add to the gauntlets... a suit beneath to tie it together... and a trip away from Gloucester.
In the middle of all of this, Jane was fighting addiction. Her ease with computer programming had turned into something else. Something bigger. She'd run into the world of hacking and found she had a knack for it because of her mutation. She tried it once. Just to see if she could slip into the school's system... and left quickly when she could. Full of mixed feelings. From there it snowballed. Could she? Should she? She didn't dare. Nope. It was too much... okay. Maybe just one more.
With the invention of Gamecrash came the opportunity to be something and someone she had not been able to be as Jane. Gamecrash was outgoing. People noticed her bright colors. They noticed her sparks. They grinned at her. She found herself becoming more outgoing in the purple wig. The more time she was Geecee, the more it seemed that there was a complete divide between the two.
Sometimes to the point where she doesn't even notice herself saying of Jane "She's not as fun as I am." instead of 'my other persona'.
That's mostly gone, she seems to have settled into things, lately.
