The Pointer of Power

Post by Scattercat » Tue Nov 01, 2011 1:45 pm

The dark mage gestured with his wand. “…as you can see on Slide Two-Eighty-Three, there is no way the forces of good can possibly overwhelm us once our Strategic Action-Response Plan is in place…”

The wizard paused, appearing puzzled. A gleaming sword blade protruded from his sternum. He slumped, and the golden-haired hero stepped up to the podium, plucking up the wand as he went.

“We have come to liberate the people! Dynamically!” he cried out. The assembled minions cheered heartily. The hero fondled the wand handle, a strange smile on his face. “But first,” he said, “a few slides.”

The hallway, from the dressing room to the lecturn, is an Escheresque conga line of impaled mages and heroes.

Well done, Catterscat. :mrgreen: You appear to have captured the essence of the American political system.
