    Heh.

    I noticed that you ceased your attacks against me.
    Are you still trying to recover after my mighty attack? Or are you just trying to hide your awful face from the rest of the world?
    No. The truth is that you are instigating Shandaxx against me! I knew that - the Sailor Warriors have keeping an eye on you for a very long time and found many proof of your plans against me.

    Sailor Mercury will make sure that you will not disturb me for a while. Hope you like the ice!

      You already set this up when you said "the skull". So I actually expected something like this...

      Yeah, I kinda realized that as soon as I gave the order, but they were already underway and I had no way to contact them. Still, it was a speedy delivery, eh?

      *Anduin places gem atop of his wizarding staff and starts casting lightning bolt repeatedly skyward, it creates a green sickly glaze of power. All who sight it, be they elf, dwarf or man cower at such arcane might, dismayed at the portentousness and the troubles that are surely to come...*

      Pew! Take that cloud! pew! pew! pew!

      A fez? No.

      Though most wizards wear a conical cap or pilos, sometimes referred to as a hennin, these pointed hats do not fit into coffins, hence the need for a shortening of the cap... Or a pointy ended coffin which is just silly.

      Personally I wear a dunces cap, awarded to me during a science lesson when I described how to start a fire with burning hands when I was very young...

      -What?! Tell the fleet to set up a blockade and.... Wait our ratings went up 5%.. Order the fleet to setup a blockade and let a Venusian pass sometimes. If it's a cute one pretending to be human, for instance... If any Martian is harmed melt a random part of Venus surface. I think they'll get the message.

    Dear Anduin,

    I hereby terminate our fremesis-ship. I cannot bring myself to love-hate someone who pledges that we all should live in harmony and overcome our differences.

      The rainbow to my monochrome.

      The dream to my reality.

      NEVER!

      Raaaargh! To hell with this Disney contract... Right. Where is my random act of evil to obtain lichdom divinitator device?

      Right, here behind a clamshell.

      *Casts read magic*

      To become a Lich, yada yada yada, remove safety from fairground device and, yada yada yada, replace the water in the log flume with napalm, yada yada yada, thus burning the children alive whilst drowning their parents in their blood and, yada yada yada, heavens gates will forever remain closed to you.

      Ha! Easy peasy lemon squeasy. Lichdom will once again be mine!

      Then... I'm coming for you Aedan.

      The drama of a fremesis-triangle... I think we could surely compete with some soap operas. We just need a good name for our soap.

      Anduin.... Anduin... will you... return to me? *hopeful*
      Will you return to me as my much belove-hated fremesis lich gnome mummy evil thing?

      Anduin, will you promise me to be true to me in good and in bad times, in sickness and in health? Will you promise that you'll love to hate me and honour me as your fremesis all the days of your undeath?
    • Anduin
      Anduin
      I'm not a mermaid. Plus being a disney princess is down right degrading to women (although Anna and Elsa were on the right track...I harbour hope).

      So I'm burning the contract (I suppose this changes my alignment to chaotic...) and signing a new one (Yay! Back to Lawful) and coming for you.

      Death is merely a tear in the illusion of reality... And your reality will bear the fruit of nightmares, pain and devastation.
    • Anduin
      Anduin
      Shandyr, was that a proposal of marriage?!?

      Unfortunately. And this will shock you at the unfairness in the world. Dead people cannot marry. Even if a partner is still breathing... They still cannot marry a dead person.

      Joy in union is only allowed to the living. But even then, in some backward states the union of two living people can still be stopped due to the opinions of others over who can marry who. Freedom is an illusion in such states and whilst I should nod at the evil oppression in place in such states, it is a petty evil, and I cannot abide such small mindedness.

      It was a proposal to renew our fremesis-ship with sacred vows.

      By the way, Aedan, you didn't kill me. A certain lich beat you to the punch long ago.

      Really, all you did was inconvenience me a little... but then I found a new body and everything was alright.

      *eats another cookie*
    • Aedan
      Aedan
      Who beat me? I did not remember it, so it means it never happened!
      By the way, this is worst than The Bold and the Beautiful, where characters seem to die, but then they come back to life.
      There is no way to survive after a Sailor attack! You people should stay dead!
    • Anduin
      Anduin
      I think I killed Nimran when he was a captain within the Ferret Five Elite Commando Unit. I believe a piano was dropped on his head.

      However his soul was able to inhabit a hosts body... He chose a well known cookie magnate and the rest is history...

      Nimran gives the cookies because he OWNS all the cookies.

      Such power is wasted... Of I owned all the cookies... Lets just say you'd be custard creamed.
    • mlnevese

      True villainy requires cunning thought and swift action.

      The fact that you are speaking to me without simply wiping me out shows you fear me.

      Obtained Disney contract...

      To keep it I must remember the three gold rules.

      1) People like ditzy cute young female leads that cannot live independently without a strong attractive male influence, preferably in a position of power close to the top of the local social hierarchy. They do not like old grizzled walking dead mummy lich gnomes bent on world domination.

      2) Killing, maiming, hurting, kidnapping and torture, whilst okay for executives, are considered no-go areas for actors.

      3) I need to have a cute pet that can confer its feelings with body language, use tools and show an intellect comparable to a 17 year old human...

      Top two, I'm good... But where am I going to find a cute, intelligent pet?

      No... This is a very simple but cunning plan. In attempting to gain a Disney contract, it is obvious that I should attempt to roll a meatball to Aedan with my nose, before accidently slurping on the same piece of spaghetti leading to an unintentional but lovingly romantic kiss...

      ...

      This cannot happen. I have no nose...

      ...

      Shandyr will attempt to replace me as a candidate who has a nose and thereby securing a contract and kissy kissies with Aedan.

      ...

      But don't worry... I have a plan.

      I decided to fact check my own statement and found this little gem on the British summer within its pages...

      "In theory summer in the UK should be hot and dry. In practice it is only hot in spells and it still rains quite a bit most summers. It is best to think of it as a way of making the hot days feel more special."

      @mlnevese maybe, maybe not. It may not get quite as hot as Amazonia up here, but you may be surprised by how close it can come. 38-40ºC is somewhat uncommon but it is certainly not unheard of in my area. It can also get quite humid up here too. Today was typical for one of our hotter summer days with a high of about 35ºC and a humidity of almost 100%. Perhaps not quite what you tend to get where you live, but still pretty hot, and with such a high humidity it is still quite uncomfortable.

      My area is one of those places where there are both cold winters and hot summers.

      No one is impressed by my countries constant water from the sky uniqueness... It should surely be a tourist attraction?

      ...

      It is nice to here about the weather in other places.

      @Anduin We get a lot of water from the sky around here as well... but as our weather is lazier we just get an entire year worth of it in one or two days :)

      You know what's great? High temperatures and high humidity! Why who needs to visit a sauna when the outdoors gets you soaked within seconds of stepping outside? Thanks American midwest!
