“Hey Dev, what’s up?”  Super Fire Dragon asked over the phone.
“Nothing, just laying low.  Is Ice Mannix gone?”  Developer 13 asked over the phone.
“Actually, yes.  Ice Mannix is no longer with us here in Imperial City.”  SFD answered.
“What a shame, well I’ll be seeing you, bye.”  Developer 13 said.
“Wait!”  SFD shouted.
“What?”  Developer 13 asked, stopping himself from hanging up.
“Do you remember that day when I called you and Jenny answered the phone?”  SFD asked coolly.
“Oh no, oh no, oh no.”  Developer 13 stammered.
“Sure you do.  I called, you said that you would help rescue Flower Night.”  SFD continued.
“Yes, I remember, but that wasn’t Jenny or anybody we know, yeah, a total stranger.”  Developer 13 said.
“That’s what I thought before I heard that Jenny had an affair and you looked so afraid of Ice.”  SFD said.
“It’s not what you think, we were writing a play and that is why I was dressed as a Roman Gladiator.”  Developer 13 lied badly.
“I know that it’s not what I thought, I just told you.”  SFD said.
“No, Dragon you don’t understand.”  Developer 13 said.
“Sure I do.  You and Jenny were fertilizing eggs.  I wasn’t hatch yesterday, you know.”  SFD continued.
“I never heard it put THAT way before.”  Developer 13 said.
“Yeah, I put 2 and 2 together and came up with cheese divided by cheese prime.”  SFD said.
“What?”  Developer 13 asked.
“You know the new math.”  SFD said.
“Dragon, that isn’t math, but I think I know what you are saying.”  Developer 13 said.
“Ok, let me put it straight.  You and Jenny were playing house, the adult way.  I might have accidently dropped a couple minor hints that Ice could possible put together … “  SFD explained.
“You told him that it was me!”  Developer 13 interrupted shouting into the phone.
“I said that you probably didn’t realize what you were doing.  Tell me that you didn’t know that she was Ice’s girlfriend.”  SFD said.
“I admit that I knew she was pregnant.  So I knew somebody did something, but she seduced me.  When she found out that I was a developer, she was all over me.  She told me that she broke up with her boy friend.  Honest, I didn’t know it was Ice Maniac.”  Developer 13 explained.
“Let that be a lesson to you, never pick up pregnant women.”  SFD said.
“Whatever, so what do you think Ice will do?”  Developer 13 asked.
“Kill you.”  SFD replied.
“Dragon, you got to help me.”  Developer 13 begged.
“What?  Me?  Why should I help you?”  SFD asked.
“Ice already hates you, so you might as well stop him from beating me to a pulp with his fists of ice.”  Developer 13 begged.
“I don’t know, Ice is pretty tough and my doctor told me to … take it easy.  Yeah, that’s it.  My doctor told me to take it easy.”  SFD said.
“Fine, put the Tattered Avenger on the line, anybody.  I need protection from Ice’s fury.”  Developer 13 continued to beg.
“Look Dev, nobody here wants to get involved in your love life.  Goodbye.”  SFD said
“Dragon, you’re on my list.  If I survive, you’re next.”  Developer 13 said and hung up.
“That went well.”  SFD said.

Meanwhile

“You’re wearing that?”  Rare Earth asked.
“Why, what’s wrong with this?”  Necrophillia said twirling in her yellow dress with small blue flowers printed on it in diagonal rows.  The dress had a blue belt tied in back into a bow.  She was wearing black patent leather flats with white socks.  Her Goth make-up was washed off and her hair was in a cute pony tail with bangs in the front.
“You look like you’re twelve going to you’re first buy-girl party, girlfriend.”  Rare Earth replied.
“I was hoping Positron might have pity on me and forget what I said, if he thinks that I’m a harmless, silly girl.”  Necrophillia said.
“Huh-uh, Miss Thang.  You’re going to set the cause of all womanhood back a half a century.”  Rare Earth got riled.
“What am I going to do?”  Necrophillia said.
“Two choices, neither involve pretending to be who you’re not.”  Rare Earth said.
“Ok, what are these choices?”  Necrophillia asked.
“First, and probably the best idea, is meet him, dressed as Necrophillia and apologize.”  Rare Earth suggested.
“What’s the other idea?”  Necrophillia asked.
“Well, you go in there and fight Positron and you lose to Positron and you go to the hospital and it’s settled.”  Rare Earth said.
“So, how about a lollipop to complete the look?”  Necrophillia asked.
“Hold it right there.”  Kolissa said bursting into the room.
“Kolissa!”  Necrophillia shouted.
“Kolissa, girlfriend, you gave me a start.”  Rare Earth said.
“Yeah, sorry.  I like bursting into rooms now.  Dr. X-rays says that it is one of the side-effects of the medication, thanks again, Necrophillia.”  Kolissa said.
“<gulp>.”  Necrophillia swallowed hard.
“We were just going over the choices Necrophillia has about Positron.”  Rare Earth said.
“Yes, and the two of you couldn’t figure your way out of a wet paper bag.”  Kolissa said.
“Well, if you’re so smart, what should I do?”  Necrophillia asked.
“Based on the way your dressed, make porn.”  Kolissa said.
“Yeah, girlfriend, you are even making me feel bothered, go change.”  Rare Earth said.
Necrophillia went behind the changing partition.
“She looked like an innocent schoolgirl with great big torpedoes.  It was disturbing.”  Kolissa commented.
“So what’s the plan?”  Rare Earth asked.
“First I’ll get the imagine of a schoolgirl necromancer with necrophilia out of my head.”  Kolissa said.
I don't know when City of Heroes will return, or do I?

“Ice, promise me you won’t do anything stupid.”  Jenny pleaded.
“Jenny, just answer the question.  Was it Developer 13?”  Ice Mannix asked.
“I wanted a regular guy for my baby’s father.  I didn’t want a superhero who would go running off and get killed by some lunatic.”  Jenny explained.
“Was it Developer 13?”  Ice Mannix asked again.
“Let me finish.”  Jenny demanded.
“Ok, ok, fine.  I will listen.”  Ice Mannix agreed.
“He was warm and friendly.  I thought that he wasn’t a superhero.  I thought that he had a normal job.  When I found out, I realized that I really do love you.  The affair made me realize a lot of things.  Ice, I really do love you, and I don’t want to live without you.  There isn’t nobody else for me.  Tell me you feel the same.”  Jenny said.
“Jenny, I love you so much it hurts sometimes.  There are times when I’m on a mission that I wish I was back at home with you, and not because I’m losing or anything like that.  Just because I so feel empty without you.”  Ice Mannix said.
“Ok, let the past be.  Let’s focus on the future.”  Jenny said.
“Ok, ok, ok.”  Ice Mannix said.

Meanwhile

“Ok, Positron, if that really is your name, I’m here to take you down.”  Necrophillia said as she approached Positron.
“This is going to be fun.”  Positron said as he prepared to fight.
“So, Posi.  What are you going to do after I kick your teeth in?”  Necrophillia threatened.
“Ha!  I’m going to pulverize you.”  Positron said.
“Oh yeah, well then who will help you take over Hero Corps and over-throw Ms. Liberty.”  Necrophillia said.
“I never needed your help to over-throw Ms. Liberty; I was just using you as back-up.”  Positron said.
Just then giant spotlights were turned on exposing Ms. Liberty, the Vanguard and half the Longbow.
“Who were you going to over-throw, Matt?”  Ms. Liberty asked.
“Oh hi, Ms. Liberty.  Glad you could make it.  Necrophillia here was plotting against you.”  Positron said.
Just then more spot lights turned on exposing raer Earth, Marshal Darkness, Kolissa, The Fattinator, Dr. Wos, Dr. X-rays and Hero Commander.
“Oh, deary, you might as well admit it.  You were trying to get us to try to takeover Hero Corps to test it defenses.  Isn’t that right?”  Kolissa asked.
“Umm, yes.  I’m always looking out for Hero Corps.”  Positron was cornered into saying.
“And Necrophillia is more than a match for you, and you’re glad that she is on our side.”  Kolissa said.
“Yes, Necrophillia is a fine example of a superhero and we are lucky to have her.”  Positron said with clinched teeth.
“Thank you for saying so, Positron.”  Necrophillia said.
“Now give her the Positron’s Pal accolade.”  Kolissa said.
“Here you go, Necrophillia.  The Poistron’s Pal accolade.”  Positron said.
“So you are not trying to takeover Hero Corps?”  Ms. Liberty asked, knowing what Positron’s plans had been after Kolissa showed her proof.
“No, no.  I would never do anything against Hero Corps.”  Positron said.
“Good!”  Ms. Liberty said.
Ms. Liberty, Vanguard and half of Longbow left.
“And Necrophillia won the fight?”  Kolissa asked.
“Yes.”  Positron said growling with teeth clinched.
“I won!”  Necrophillia shouted.
Just then the ground shook and Necrophillia fell on her backside.  Positron had stomped his foot.
“Positron, it has been a pleasure.”  Kolissa said as she and the rest of the team left taking Necrophillia in tow.

Meanwhile

“What do you think, should we try to complete this turkey of a mission?”  The Tattered Avenger asked.
 “Yeah, there exists no reason to stay here.”  The Paragon Comptroller said.
“I’m not so sure that there was ever a mission, maybe.”  Umbral Schrumbral said.
“I agree with the squid, let’s 86 this dump.”  Super Spine Wolf said.
“The sooner we back, the quicker we will return.”  Wong Tong Suey said.
 “The better part of heroism is discretion.”  The Paragon Avenger said.
“Normally, I would agree too, but something doesn’t feel right.  Let’s investigate some more.”  Super Fire Dragon said.
“The Dragon is right, but I just figured it was paetoria.”  The Paragon Avenger said.
“Fine.  The Dragon gets his way, again.”  The Paragon Comptroller said.
I don't know when City of Heroes will return, or do I?

“Hold it right there, Dragon!”  Kolissa cried as she burst into the warehouse where Super Fire Dragon, Super Spine Wolf, Paragon Avenger, Paragon Comptroller, Tattered Avenger, Wong Tong Suey and Umbral Schrumbral were investigating.
“Kolissa!  What are you doing here?”  Super Fire Dragon asked.
“I burst into rooms now; it’s a side effect of my medication.”  Kolissa explained.
“You scared 10 years off me.”  Tattered Avenger said.
“Are we sure that Kolissa isn’t still an Arachnos Widow?”  Paragon Comptroller asked.
“I’ll vouch for her.”  Paragon Avenger said.
“I would too.”  SFD said.
“I would concur.”  Kolissa said.
“You can’t vouch for yourself.”  Umbral Schrumbral said.
“Here, have a bagel and be quiet.”  Kolissa said as she tossed Umbral a bagel.
“Wow, it is even marked with a circle ‘K’, so it has to be good.”  Umbral said.
“What does the circle ‘K’ mean?  I’ve seen it on several food items at the store.”  Super Spine Wolf said.
“Wait, you buy your food at the store?”  Paragon Avenger asked.
“Yes, just because I’m a wolf doesn’t mean that I’m uncivilized.”  Super Spine Wolf said.
“The circle ‘K’ indicates that the food item came from the circle ‘K’ ranch in Wyoming.”  SFD said.
“No, that’s wrong.  You silly dragon.”  Paragon Comptroller said.
“Yeah, Dragon, it means that Deacon Kramer himself has approved of the food item for a balanced healthy diet.”  Kolissa said.
“Oh, that explains it.  I thought that it meant it was considered Kosher by a group of leading rabbis, but your explanation makes more sense.”  Tattered Avenger said.
“Oi Vai!”  Umbral Schrumbral said.
“Anyway, what are you doing here, Kolissa?”  SFD asked.
“Well, I saved Necrophillia’s butt, and exposed Positron’s plan to take-over Hero Corps.”  Kolissa said.
“Wow, you have been busy.”  Paragon Avenger said.
“Yup, so I figured that I’ve come over to Praetoria and help you guys.”  Kolissa said.
“Kolissa, you are always welcome on my team, even if I have to kick somebody, like Umbral.”  SFD said.
“Hey, what I do?”  Umbral Schrumbral asked.
“Umbral Schumbral, won’t you deleted?”  Paragon Avenger asked.
“No, I made it to 50; I just never became an incarnate.”  Umbral Schumbral said.
“That’s right, because most of the Incarnate Trials occurred on Friday after sunset.”  Tattered Avenger said.
“Very funny, you should be a comedian, like Jackie Mason.”  Umbral Schumbral said.
“He never worked on Friday night either.”  SFD said.
They all laughed.
I don't know when City of Heroes will return, or do I?

 “So what are we doing, Dragon?”  Kolissa asked sternly.
“Yeah, Dragon.  What are we doing here?”  Totally awesome Dude asked.
“Oh, didn’t I tell you?  Paragon Avenger is the team leader.”  Super Fire Dragon said passing the star to PA.
The Paragon Avenger spit out the sip of tea he had just taken before being made the team leader.
“Me?  What did I do?”  Paragon Avenger asked, wiping the tea off his face.
“Paragon Avenger, what is mission?”  Wong Tong Suey asked.
“Lead us oh great leader.”  Umbral Schrumbral added.
“Now wait one minute now.”  Paragon Avenger said.
“No take-backsies.”  SFD said as he could see that PA was considering giving him back the star.
“Alright, let me talk to one of my contacts, BRB.”  Paragon Avenger said as he left the warehouse.
“Kolissa, did you say that you stopped Positron from taking over Hero Corps?”  Totally Awesome Dude asked.
“Glad to know you were paying attention.”  Kolissa answered.
“Ha, anyway, does that mean that the Skulz are posed to take-over Dark Astoria?”  Totally awesome Dude asked.
“The Skulz take-over Dark Astoria?  The Malta Group have a better chance of taking-over Ouroboros.”  The Tattered Avenger scuffed.
“But the signs are all there, the clockwork moving into the Hollows, The Warriors trying to control Croatoa.  It all fits.”  Totally Awesome Dude pleaded.
“Dude, now I see why you were deleted.”  The Paragon Comptroller remarked.
“Ouch!”  Super Spine Wolf commented.
“When the Nemisis take-over Skyway City then you should worry about the ‘Knives’ seizing control of the Vanguard.”  Kolissa explained.
“Yes, but aren’t you worried about the ‘Carnival’ getting a foothold in Faultline?”  Totally Awesome Dude asked.
“The might of Arachnos will crush them!”  Kolissa blurted out.
“Kolissa?”  SFD asked concerned about Kolissa.
“Don’t you mean, ‘Hero Corps’ will crush them?”  The Paragon Comptroller said.
“What I meant to say is that if Hero Corps doesn’t intervene, Arachnos will defend Faultline.  The Arachnos base is there, and they think of it as a second home.”  Kolissa said calmly.
“Yes, but what if the Lost join the ‘Carnival’.  What would happen then?”  Wong Tong Suey asked.
“No chance of that happening.  There’s more chance of the Tsoo teaming up with the Council.”  Totally Awesome Dude replied.
“What about the Circle of Thorns joining up with the ‘Carnival’?”  Wong Tong Suey asked.
“Don’t even joke around about that.”  SFD warned.
“I’m not worried about that.  That would be like the Devouring Earth helping the Clockwork.  It ain’t gonna happen.”  Kolissa responded.

Meanwhile

There was a knock at the door, a woman screamed, and a shadow moved across the blind.  Developer 13 was terrified.
“It’s only the wind.”  Developer 13 said to himself trying to calm his nerves.
“Dev, I know you’re in there.  Open up.”  Ice shouted from the other side of the door.
Developer 13 knows that Ice knows that Developer 13 came to know Jenny.
“If he wants a fight, I’ll give him a fight.”  Developer 13 thought out loud as he crossed the room to the door.
“Ice, what a pleasant surprise.”  Developer 13 said through the door.
“Let me in, we need to talk.”  Ice Mannix said also through the door.
Ice didn’t sound angry or upset, so Developer 13 decided to take a chance and let him in.
“Ice, please come in.”  Developer 13 said.
“Dev, I know you and Jenny have been seeing each other.”  Ice Mannix said as he sat on Developer 13’s couch drinking a Jack and Coke.
“What?  No.  Who told you that lie?”  Developer 13 said almost convincingly.
“Knock it off, Dev.  I’m not here to re-arrange your face.”  Ice Mannix said.
“Sir, you have wounded my honor.  I demand satisfaction.”  Developer 13 stated.
“You know that that means we have to fight don’t you?”  Ice Mannix asked.
“Let me rephrase that.”  Developer 13 said.
“I wish you would.”  Ice Mannix said draining his drink.  “And get me another one of these.”
“Ok, I admit that Jenny and I bumped into each other … at the mall, yeah the mall.”  Developer 13 replied as he got up and walked to his bar area.  “But I assure you …”
“Look, I know what happened.  I just need to clear up a couple of things.”  Ice Mannix interrupted.
“I’m not confirming or denying anything, but I’m listening.”  Developer 13 said as he handed Ice another Jack and Coke and sat back down.
“Whatever.  Just know this.  You ever bump into Jenny again; you had better not keep bumping, if you know what I mean.  I will PvP all over you.”  Ice Mannix threatened.
“Ok, I understand …”  Developer 13 said meekly.
“The only reason you are still in one piece is that I promised Jenny to put it behind me.  From what I could get out of her, it sounded like she seduced you, is that right?”  Ice Mannix interrupted with a question.
“Ice, nothing happened, and if anything did happen, I’m not going to share the details with a jealous boy-friend.”  Developer 13 said.
“Wise man.  Ok, the past is the past.  The future is … “  Ice Mannix punched Developer 13 in the nose after finishing his drink and throwing the glass across the room.  Developer 13 fell to the floor trying to shake off the mighty blow.
“I’ll see myself out, thanks for the drinks and our little talk.”  Ice Mannix said as he walked out the door.
“You’re welcome.”  Developer 13 slurred right before he passed out.

“Yeah, I was wondering, if it isn’t too much to ask, if you would consider, and feel free to say ‘No’ I’ll understand, but I was hoping I could, oh never mind, I’m sorry I bothered you.”  Flower Night stammered over the phone.
“Flower Night, just ask your question.  A question is never too much to ask.”  Necrophillia replied.
“Ok, here it goes.  Can I join your team?”  Flower Night asked meekly.
“Flower Night, we would be honored to have you on our team.”  Necrophillia said sensing that Flower Night needed an ego boost.
“Oh really!  Thank you!  Thank you.”  Flower Night said with joy after being told to ‘go home’ by other superheroes.
Necrophillia told Flower Night where to meet the team and she hung up the phone.
“Listen, Flower Night will be joining us.”  Necrophillia said to the team.
“Girlfriend, we do need no breadstick powerset user on our team, what were you thinking?”  Rare Earth asked.
“No, she’s … “  Necrophillia said.
“Now, now, we haven’t seen the breadstick powerset in combat, we shouldn’t judge.”  The Fattinator interrupted.
“But, she’s … “  Necrophillia said.
“I’ve heard nothing but bad reports about the breadstick powerset.”  Dr. Wos said.
“Well, it isn’t a scrapper based powerset, so I can see why you might dis it.”  Marshal Darkness stated.
“You don’t under- … “  Necrophillia said.
“Personally, I would like to see the breadstick powerset up close.  You know, judge for myself.”  Hero Commander interrupted.
Necrophillia summoned all her zombies.
“The next person who interrupts will get a face full of zombie.”  Necrophillia said in her trademark temper.
“I’m sorry, Necrophillia, what were you going to say?”  The Fattinator asked.
“Calm down, girlfriend, why you always getting so jumpy?”  Rare Earth insisted.
“Flour Knight will not be joining us … “  Necrophillia started.
“But you said … “  Dr. Wos interrupted.
“Careful!”  Necrophillia warned.
“Sorry, sorry, continue.”  Dr. Wos said.
“Flour Knight will not be joining us.  Flower Night will be joining us.”  Necrophillia shouted before she got interrupted again.
“Necrophillia, perhaps the stress of being a team leader has been too much for you, I blame myself.  We should be helping you more.”  Dr. X-rays said.
“Doc, one more word and my former employer zombie will slap your nose off.”  Necrophillia threatened.
“At the risk of getting zombie slapped, you said that Flour Knight will not be joining us, Flour Knight will be joining us.  That makes no sense.”  Hero Commander said.
“Err!”  Necrophillia growled.
“Hi guys, did I miss anything.”  Flower Night said as she walked into the warehouse where the team was gathered.
Just then Necrophillia sent her zombies to attack Flower Night.  The zombies quickly over powered her.
“Necrophillia!”  The Fattinator shouted.
Dr. X-rays healed Flower Night.
“Girlfriend, you ‘pologize and stop acting so crazy.”  Rare Earth insisted.
“Sorry, Flower Night.  Sorry, team.  My legendary temper flared up again.”  Necrophillia said.
“What happened?”  Flower Night asked.
“I think I know what happened, ha!  It is almost funny.  There are three of them.  There is Flower Knight.  Think roses and horses.  There is Flower Night.  Think roses at night.  And there is Flour Knight.  Think bread and horses.”  Marshal Darkness said.
“That doesn’t explain why zombies attacked me.”  Flower Night said.
“When Necrophillia said that Flower Night, roses at night, would be joining us … “  Dr. Wos said.
“We all thought that she had said that Flour Knight, bread and horses, would be joining us.”  Hero Commander said.
“Necrophillia tried to explain, but … “  Dr. X-rays.
“Instead, she got angry and attacked you for having such a confusing name.”  Rare Earth said.
“Yeah, Flower Night, I really am sorry.  It’s my lunatic team’s fault.  They kept interrupting my explanation.”  Necrophillia explained.
“Yes, we should all be warned.  Don’t mess with Necrophillia.  I saw Kolissa after she had her soul sent to hell.  It wasn’t pretty.”  Flower Night said.
“Geez, nobody will let me forget that.”  Necrophillia said.
“You almost sent her to the funny farm.”  Dr. X-rays stated.
“Look, if you want me to quit the team, I will, but can we please move on.”  Necrophillia pleaded.
“Necrophillia, you are a valued member of this team.  We all respect you.  We like you, but we don’t want to have to worry about your zombies attacking us.”  Dr. Wos said.
“Ok, next time I start to lose it, somebody shout ‘Kolissa’, ok.”  Necrophillia said.
“What will that do, girlfriend?”  Rare Earth asked.
“It should remind me of how I feel after I lose my temper.”  Necrophillia offered.
“Whoever shouts ‘Kolissa’ had better also duck.”  Marshal Darkness said.
They all laughed.
I don't know when City of Heroes will return, or do I?

“You punched him?”  Jenny cried in disbelief.
“It was just a warning.”  Ice Mannix said.
“I’m going over there.”  Jenny said as she put on her coat and grabbed her purse.
“Jenny, no wait.”  Ice Mannix pleaded.
“I can’t believe you would bully a fellow superhero.”  Jenny stated.
“It’s called PvP, it’s no big deal.”  Ice Mannix said.
“Maybe in the arena.”  Jenny exclaimed.
“Look, Jenny.  Oh com’on.”  Ice Mannix shouted.
“What, are you going to punch me too?”  Jenny asked.
Ice hung his head.
Jenny left the apartment.

Meanwhile

“Ok, seriously, I’m fun-loving and easy-going.  I respect my fellow superheroes, and I enjoy being the team leader.  Just don’t irk me.  I can’t take getting irked.”  Necrophillia instructed.
“Shutting off my irk power.”  Flower Night joked.
“Careful, Flower Night.  She means business.”  The Fattinator said.
“Necrophillia is liable to snap at any moment.”  Marshal Darkness said.
“We had better keep a close watch on her at all times.”  Dr. X-rays said soberly.
“Oh you guys, I don’t fly off the handle for no reason.”  Necrophillia said.
“I’m going to use my extra-strength zombie repellant.”  Rare Earth advised.
“One minute, everything is fine.  The next minute, wham, zombies are attacking you.”  Hero Commander said.
“Maybe you should just apologize now, Flower Night, before it’s too late.”  Dr. Wos suggested.
“Look, I’m not some nut-job who attacks her teammates without provocation.”  Necrophillia stated.
“Never the less, I’m sorry, Necrophillia.  I take it all back.  Please don’t kill me.”  Flower Night said.
“You people are making me angry.”  Necrophillia warned.
“Oh no, who will be next to suffer the wrath of Necrophillia?”  Hero Commander asked.
“Now listen up, you heroes have been doing outstanding work, but this non-sense banter has to stop.”  Necrophillia said imitating Ms. Liberty.
“Yes, Ms. Liberty, we were just having a little fun.”  Dr. Wos said worried that Ms. Liberty might demote him or something.
“Necrophillia, that was funny!”  Hero Commander said.
“You had a scrapper graveling, priceless.”  Marshal Darkness said laughing.
“Wait, that wasn’t?  Necrophillia, you trickster.”  Dr. Wos said.
“Wos, you almost wet yourself.”  Necrophillia laughed.
“Ok, ok, very funny.”  Dr. Wos said.
“Face it Wos, you aren’t going to live this down anytime soon.”  The Fattinator.

Meanwhile

“I think I know what we need to do.”  Kolissa said.
“Yeah, what’s that?”  Totally Awesome Dude asked.
“We need to get in touch with the leadership of the Resistance.”  Kolissa informed.
“Of course, Kolissa really is the brightest cookie on the stockings.”  Super Fire Dragon said.
“Dragon, here have some cheese and be quiet for five minutes, deary.”  Kolissa said handing SFD a hunk of cheese.
“That’s all you have to do to get him to shut up, why didn’t nobody tell me?”  Umbral Schrumbral asked.
“I have another bagel, and I’m not afraid to use it.”  Kolissa threatened.
“I’m sorry, I’ll be good.”  Umbral Schrumbral whimpered.
“Do you have a plan to get to the Resistance?”  The Tattered Avenger asked.
“Why yes, deary, I don’t just spout off ideas without a plan of action.”  Kolissa cooed.
“Ok, I got us a nice mission.”  The Paragon Avenger said as he walked back into the place where the team was gathered.
“Does it involve getting in touch with the Resistance?”  Kolissa asked.
“Yes did does, are you a mind-reader or something?”  The Paragon Avenger asked.
“Nope, I’m just used to incompetence.”  Kolissa replied.
“Oh, you have been hanging around Super Fire Dragon too much.”  The Paragon Avenger said.
“Hey, Dragons are incompetent too, you know.”  SFD said defensively.
They all laughed.
I don't know when City of Heroes will return, or do I?

"What are you doing here?"  Developer 13 asked answering the knock on his door.
"Just open up, already."  Jenny pleaded.
"Did Ice hit you, too?"  Developer 13 asked as he opened the door and let Jenny in.
"No, look, I'm sorry about Ice.  I never wanted to see you get hurt."  Jenny said.
"I had it coming, I suppose."  Developer 13 said sadly.
"No.  No, you didn't.  Nobody desevres to be hit."  Jenny affirmed.
"You're right, but you and Ice love each other.  I don't want to came between you two."  Developer 13 replied.
"I just wanted to say that I'm sorry that Ice lost his temper.  Please forgive him and me.  And you are invited to the wedding."  jenny said.
"Thank you.  That does mean a lot.  I'm sorry that it didn't work out between us, but I think you belong with Ice."  Developer 13 said.
"Thank you, you are a gentleman."  Jenny said.
"Ahhh, Jenny."  Developer 13 said as he gave her a big hug.
"Ow!  Oooft."  Jenny exclaimed.
"What's wrong?"  Developer 13 asked letting go of Jenny.
"Wow, is that what a contraction feels like?"  Jenny asked.
"How would I know?"  Developer 13 asked.

“Is she ok?”  Ice asked Developer 13 as he walked into the hospital waiting room.
“I don’t know, they won’t tell me anything.”  Developer 13 replied.
Ice went to the nurses’ window and tapped on the glass.
“May I help you?”  Asked the stern looking no non-sense charge nurse.
“I want to know about my girlfriend, Jenny, is she alright?”  Ice Mannix pleaded.
“Last name?”  Asked the nurse.
“Why do you need my last name?”  Ice Mannix asked stunned.
“The patient’s name.”  The nurse snapped.
“Oh, right, Jenny Hall, how is she?”  Ice Mannix blurted.
“I’ll check, have a seat.”  The nurse replied, closed the window and went back to writing whatever she had been writing before.  (Maybe she was writing fan-fiction for the titan forum.  Nah, only weirdoes write fan fiction.)
Ice took a deep breath and calmed his nerves.  He couldn’t very well punch this snotty nurse into next week, after all people are counting on her to finish her fan fiction.  (Ok I’ll stop doing that.)
“Dev, you look well.”  Ice Mannix said as he turned and found a seat in the nearly empty waiting room.
“Hey, Ice.”  Developer 13 said.
“Ok, I’m sorry I hit you.”  Ice Mannix said.
“Oh, ok, yes, it was nothing.”  Developer 13 replied.
“Look, I love Jenny and I don’t want to lose her.”  Ice Mannix said.
“Ice, I know.  Jenny and I were a thing once, but that’s over.”  Developer 13 responded.
“So why did she dump you?”  Ice Mannix asked trying to take his mind off whatever is happening to Jenny and that nurse who is still just sitting there.
“That’s kind of rude, but I’ll tell you.  She thought that I was only a computer applications developer.  Once she found out that I was a superhero, hot potato time.”  Developer 13 revealed.
“Yeah, that’s why she dumped me too, before we got back together.”  Ice Mannix said.
“Ice, you are a lucky man.  Stop feeling sorry for yourself and enjoy the relationship.”  Developer 13 said.
“Man, that is deep.”  Ice Mannix said.

Meanwhile

“I knew it was Necrophillia all a long, I was just playing along, yeah, I was playing along you know.”  Dr. Wos explained.
“Forget it Wos, she got you hard.”  The Fattinator said.
“You believe me, Melissa?”  Dr. Wos asked.
“Kind of busy, ya know, fighting the Clockwork.”  Rare Earth said while battling the Clockwork.
“Wos, do you mind doing some scrapper stuff.”  Dr. X-rays said between healing Necrophillia and Marshal Darkness.
“Doc W, get your sword in there, and keep them off me while I try to summons my mercs.”  Hero Commander ordered.
“But you guys don’t think that I really, actually thought that Ms. Liberty was … “  Dr. Wos said.
“WOS!”  Necrophillia, Rare Earth, Marshal Darkness, The Fattinator, Hero Commander, Flower Night and Dr. X-rays shouted.
Dr. Wos picked up his sword and began hacking the Clockwork to pieces.

Meanwhile

“Some guy name Helix told me about Calvin Scott.  We have to convince him that we are on his side, and gain his trust.”  The Paragon Avenger explained the mission.
“We are going to have to battle the Loyalists.”  Kolissa stated.
“I’m lost, who is the bad guy here, Emperor Cole?”  The Tattered Avenger asked.
“It’s not that simple, deary.”  Kolissa said.
“This isn’t Paragon City.  Things aren’t good vs. evil here.”  Super Spine Wolf said.
“Oh great, so we are up against the forces of gray.”  Umbral Schrumbral commented.
“Great, just great.”  Super Fire Dragon said.
“That’s Praetoria, baby.”  Totally Awesome Dude said.
“What happen in Praetoria, stay in Praetoria.”  Wong Tong Suey added.
“Ok, we have to go to the ‘Lambda Sector‘, and fight some guys there.”  The Paragon Avenger said.
“Let’s see the A/V is named, ‘Marauder’.”  Kolissa offered.
“We shall force feed that Maury guy lamb until he bursts!”  SFD exclaimed.
“Why do I always get stuck with the dragon?”  Kolissa said to herself a little too loud.
They all laughed.

Just then, Jenny came into the room sitting in a wheelchair being pushed by a nurse.  The stern-looking charge nurse looked up, open the sliding glass window and called-out.  “Sir, your girlfriend is here.”
Ice was already standing by the wheelchair talking to Jenny about the instructions the doctor gave them.  Ice gave the charge nurse a dirty look and she slide the window closed.
“Jenny, is everything alright?”  Developer 13 asked as he walked over.
“Yes, thank you, Dev.”  Jenny said.
“Ok, Ice you can take her home, unless you guys need my help, I’m out of here.”  Developer 13 stated.
“Thanks for bringing Jenny to the hospital.”  Ice Mannix said.
“Bye, Dev.”  Jenny said as Developer 13 left the room.
“Hey, don’t get too friendly.”  Ice Mannix joked.


Meanwhile

“Deary, admit it.  You nearly wet yourself when you thought Ms. Liberty was mad at you.”  Necrophillia said imitating Kolissa.
“Kolissa, you weren’t even there.  I … “  Dr. Wos said.
“She got you again!”  Marshal Darkness interjected.
They all laughed, except Dr. Wos.
“Doctor Wos, you are needed to save the Empire.”  Necrophillia said imitating Darth Vader from ‘Star Wars’.
“I would be honored to help save, wait a minute.”  Dr. Wos said.
“Can’t you see that Necrophillia is doing those voices?”  Rare Earth laughed.
“It’s pretty obvious, why do you keep falling for that?”  The Fattinator asked.
“I don’t know, I hear the voice and I don’t think of Necrophillia.”  Dr. Wos admitted.
“Fattinator, your robots are making too much noise!”  Necrophillia said imitating Ms. Liberty.
“Nice try, Necrophillia.”  The Fattinator said.
They all laughed.


Meanwhile

“Ok, you go up there and take out the guns in the towers, meanwhile, we’ll clean-up anybody in the yard, and then we all go into the warehouse.”  Super Fire Dragon explained.
“The more I think of your plan, the less I think of your plan.”  The Tattered Avenger said.
“I’m thinking that we stick together until we get inside the warehouse.”  The Paragon Comptroller advised.
“You know, that guy over there looks like Back Alley Brawler.  I’m going to go over there and speak to him.”  Umbral Schrumbral said.
Super Spine Wolf tackles Umbral Schrumbral to the ground.
“No, you fool.  That’s Maurader!”  Super Spine Wolf said..
“Yes, ok, nice doggie.”  Umbral Schrumbral said afraid of the spine wolf.
“Ok, let’s go in.”  SFD said.
They all went into the compound.  The sniper towers fired lasers at them.  They fought groups of loyalists.  They made it inside the warehouse.

I don't know when City of Heroes will return, or do I?

“Super Fire Dragon, I’m looking for a team.  I need to get back in the game.”  Developer 13 pleaded.
“Dev, I have a team of 9 as it is.”  SFD replied.
“Yeah, speaking of Ice, he and Jenny are back together and everything seems to be ok, now.”  Developer 13 volunteered.
“Dragon I heard that Jenny went to the hospital.  Ask Dev about that.”  Paragon Avenger said.
“Glad to hear it, hey did Jenny go to the hospital?”  SFD asked.
“Oh, yes, but it was nothing, just a minor pregnancy scare thing.”  Developer 13 said.
“I don’t know nothing ‘bout birthing no babies.”  SFD said imitating a character from “Gone with the Wind”.
“Funny.  Can you help me?”  Developer 13 asked.
“I do have an idea.  I think we can bring back leagues.”  SFD said.
“Leagues!  That hasn’t been tried since that awful day in November when all the heroes were sent to another dimension.”  Developer 13 exclaimed.
“Hang on, I’ll call Necrophillia.”  SFD said.
“Necrophillia, how’s things?”  SFD asked.
“Dragon, this isn’t Necrophillia, deary.  Hadn’t you figured out how to use your communicator yet?”  Necrophillia scolded imitating Kolissa.
“Well at least it isn’t that Italian Chef guy again.”  SFD thought out loud.
“Dragon, you fool, that’s Necrophillia pranking you.”  Kolissa said.
“I knew that.”  SFD said.
“O-ok, of course.”  Kolissa retreated.
“Necrophillia you prankster!”  SFD shouted over the communicator.
Laughter was heard coming over the communicator.
“Give me that thing, Dragon, before you hurt yourself.”  The Paragon Comptroller insisted.
“Cut it out, you self-important accountant.”  SFD said to Paragon Comptroller.  “Necrophillia, I have a great idea.”  SFD said over the communicator.
“What’s the plan, Dragon?”  Necrophillia answered imitating Ms. Liberty.
“Ms. Liberty, what are you doing there?”  SFD asked.
Again laughter was heard coming over the communicator.
“Necrophillia, how did you ever make hero?”  SFD asked starting to get angry with Necrophillia’s jokes.
“I used to be a prostitute, but I became a superhero when I heard that it takes fewer brains.”  Necrophillia joked.
“Anyway, I’m forming a league.”  SFD informed Necrophillia.
“A league, wow, we haven’t had a league since, since that day all the heroes left.”  Necrophillia stated.
“Bring your team to Imp. City.”  SFD ordered.
“Right, Necrophillia out.”  Necrophillia said over the communicator.
“Ok, I’m thinking four teams.  I’ll be the league leader.  Kolissa, Paragon Avenger, and Necrophillia will run teams.”  SFD said.
“I don’t want to run a team, I mean unless I have to, but I’m thinking we controllers don’t make great team leaders.”  Paragon Avenger said.
“Oh right, with your invisibility and having to control pets; that might be too difficult.”  SFD replied.
“Why don’t we finish this mission first?  Have you seen the ‘Security Guard’ they have in this place?”  Tattered Avenger asked nervously.
“Ok, alright.”  Sfd said.
And they all charged the massive robotic ‘Security Guard’ taking it down quick.

“Alright!  Developer 13 is the Gold Team leader.”  Super Fire Dragon conceded to Developer 13’s demands.
“I want ‘Not Another Hero’ on my team.”  Kolissa interjected.
“I call Totally Awesome Dude.”  Necrophillia chimmed-in.
“Hold it!  Hold It!  We got to get organized first.”  SFD insisted.
“Dibbs on the Paragon Avenger.”  Developer 13 cried.
“I want to team with Kolissa and Marshal Darkness.”  Rare Earth said.
“I know I’m going to be picked last, go figure.”  Umbral Schrumbral said.
“Ok, I’ll take Tattered Avenger, but you got to give me Dr. X-rays.”  Necrophillia said.
“That’s fair, but then I get Dr. Wos and Hero Commander.”  Kolissa snapped.
“I claim The Fattinator and Super Spine Wolf.”  Developer 13 shouted.
“Wait, stop, we got to do this logically.”  SFD said trying to gain control of the chaos.
“I’ll trade you Flower Night for Wong Tong Suey.”  Necrophillia said.
“Get lost.”  Kolissa scoffed.
“Will you take Paragon Comptroller for Flower Night?”  Developer 13 asked.
“Done and done.”  Necrophillia said.
“I’ll take ‘Some Nut with a Gun’ for old times sake.”  Developer 13 stated.
“Ok then, I’ll take Guns McCoy.”  Necrophillia said.
“You can’t just take heroes like that; we have to have a plan.”  SFD said to no one.
“Well I’m glad that I am not on Necrophillia’s team nor am I teamed with the Paragon Avenger.  So this system seems to be working pretty well.”  Dr. Wos commented.
“Since you already have Totally Awesome Dude, I’ll take Umbral Schrumbral.”  Developer 13 said.
“Yes!  In your face Vince Dastardly.  I got picked before you.”  Umbral Schrumbral gloated.
“Super Fire Dragon, that squid guy is being mean to me.”  Vince Dastardly whined.
“Who said that?”  SFD asked.
Vince Dastardly became visible.
“Oh, sorry.  I keep forgetting that you can’t see me when I’m invisible.”  Vince Dastardly said.
“Ok Vince, you’re on my team.”  SFD said.
“I want that bourbon guy, what’s his name.”  Kolissa said.
“Richard Bourbon the XXIV, madam, at your service.”  Richard Bourbon XXIV said.
“Sorry, Dev, but I just did some figuring.  We can’t run a Gold Team, there are too many of us.”  SFD said.
“Dragon, don’t you mean ‘too few of us’, deary?”  Kolissa interjected.
“Whatever, instead of each of us having cheese team members, we can have red, blue, and green teams each with 8.”  SFD said.
“Fine, ok team we are now on the dragon’s team.”  Developer 13 said.
“I almost forgot, Red Control, you’ll be on Necrophillia’s team.”  SFD said.
“I have been doing some figuring as well, I’m thinking that I should move to Necrophillia’s team.”  The Paragon Avenger said.
“Good Plan, looks like we’re all set.”  SFD said.
“Dragon, I’ll trade you Red Control for Flower Night.”  Necrophillia said
“Deal.”  SFD said not wanting to get in the way of the team organization process.
“Well if the readers aren’t totally lost, I wouldn’t be surprised.”  Some Nut with a Gun said.
So Super Fire Dragon had a league of three teams.  The league leader and Blue Team leader is the dragon himself.  Kolissa and Necrophillia are the other team leaders.  On the dragon’s team we have Vince Dastardly the stalker, The Fattinator the robots mastermind, Super Spine Wolf a spines scrapper, Red Control an illusion controller, Some Nut with a Gun an AR blaster, Umbral Schrumbral the warshade who did not get picked last---go figure and Developer 13 a mind controller.  Kolissa team has Not Another Hero a tanker, Rare Earth an earth controller, Marshal Darkness a zombies mastermind, Hero Commander a mercenaries mastermind, Dr. Wos a broadsword scrapper, Wong Tong Suey a traps defender and Richard Bourbon the XXIV a water blaster.  Necrophillia’s team has Totally Awesome Dude a peacebringer, The Tattered Avenger a Martial Arts Scrapper, Dr. X-rays an empathy defender, The Paragon Comptroller an earth controller, Guns McCoy an AR blaster, Flower Night an archery blaster and Paragon Avenger an illusion controller.  Now let’s hope that when they enter the map, the fool game doesn’t scramble the teams.
I don't know when City of Heroes will return, or do I?

“Now that we are a league, what will we do?”  Umbral Schrumbral questioned.
“Go bowling, duh.”  Developer 13 said sarcastically.
“Deary, the big people are talking.  Please be quiet.”  Kolissa said condescendingly.
“Kolissa, you still got it.”  Necrophillia admired.
“Dev is still feeling the burn from that one.”  Some Nut with a Gun said.
“Ok, listen-up, I got a mission.”  Super Fire Dragon said.
“Ok, spill it, dragon.”  Richard Bourbon XXIV said.
“I’ll bet that you don’t say, ‘Spill it’, very often.”  Vince Dastardly commented.
“Vince, that was clever, how did you come up with it?”  Marshal Darkness said.
“Anyway, we are supposed to go to the Behavior Adjustment Facility …”  SFD said ignoring the league banter.
“I’ve heard of that,”  Flower Night interrupted.
“Don’t interrupt, deary.”  Necrophillia said imitating Kolissa.
“Hey, that’s my line.”  Kolissa said.
“Dr. Wos, have you been listening to the dragon?”  Necrophillia said imitating Ms. Liberty.
“Yes, Ms. Liberty I’ve been …”  Dr. Wos said worried that Ms. Liberty might remove him from the league or something.
They all laughed.
“Dude, she got you again.”  The Fattinator said.
“No she didn’t, I was just standing here.”  Totally Awesome Dude said.
“No, not you another hero.”  The Fattinator said.
“She got me not also.”  Not Another Hero said.
“No, I was talking to that nut with a sword.”  The Fattinator said.
“She didn’t get me either, and it’s not a sword, it’s a gun.”  Some Nut with a Gun said as he squeezed off half a clip.
“What it you fool nut, I nearly soiled my costume, fool nut.”  Rare Earth shouted
“Dang fool, ain’t got a lick of sense.”  Rare Earth muttered to her self.
“Dr. Wos, she got you good.  Nut, fire your gun only at the bad guys.  Necrophillia, let the dragon assign the mission before confusing everybody.”  Kolissa insisted.
“Thank you, Kolissa.  Now the mission is to go to the Behavior Adjustment Facility and kill the escaping prisoners?  That can’t be right.”  SFD said.
“Fool dragon, you done messed up the mission.”  Rare Earth said.
“Go back and copy the mission details correctly this time.”  The Paragon Avenger said.
“Sorry guys, I’ll double-check with the contact.”  SFD said as he went back to his contact.
“Fool Dragon.”  Rare Earth said.
They all laughed.
“You know, actually I think that that IS the mission if I’m not mistaken.”  Red Control said.
“Shut up Red, didn’t you get deleted?”  Guns McCoy said.
“Look who’s talking.”  Hero Commander said.
“Just because you didn’t get deleted and made it all the way to level 50 and became an incarnate, you think you’re hot snot.  Well, you’re not.”  Red Control said in rebuttal.
They all said, “oooooooooo” and started chatting “Fight!”
Guns pulled out his guns and started firing.  Red Control blinded him with a flash of light.
“Guns, face it.  You’ve been served.”  Totally Awesome Dude said.
“Man, I did not see that coming.”  Guns McCoy admitted.
“Sorry, Guns.  I guess am sensitive about being deleted.”  Red Control said reaching for Guns McCoy’s hand.
“No hard feelings, as soon as I can see again.”  Guns McCoy said.  Red Control grabbed his hand and shook it.
“Illusion blind wears off fairly quickly, that’s why I was so happy when I got my Phantom Army.”  The Paragon Avenger explained.
“Not to pour salt in healing wounds, but Guns McCoy was deleted too, he never became an incarnate, he never made 50 even.”  Umbral Schrumbral said.
“Deary, here have a bagel and be silent.”  Kolissa said tossing Umbral a bagel.
“Kolissa, where do you get your bagels from?”  Dr. X-rays asked.
“Probably the same place where she buys her tea.”  Necrophillia chimed in.
“Kolissa, do you still give certain house guests tea with knock-out drops, classic?”  The Paragon Avenger said.
“Don’t worry, Umbral, the bagels are harmless, but some times I find the need to serve knock-out drops.”  Kolissa said.
“I go to girl house.  She bring me funny tasting soup.  I wake up naked and tied-up with ropes.  I never go back to there.”  Wong Tong Suey said.
Everybody laughed.
“Knock-out drops, a girls best friend.”  Kolissa said.
“No, that’s diamonds are a girl’s best friend.”  Flower Night said.
“She gave up diamonds.”  Necrophillia said.
Kolissa raised her arm to fire a poisoned dart at Necrophillia, but then she remembered that whole ordeal with Necrophillia getting even.  She lowered her arm.
“Ok, I talked to the contact.  Turns out that I had heard it right the first time.  We need to kill all the escaping prisoners.”  SFD said.
“What?”  The Paragon Comptroller said.
“Dragon, we’re heroes.  We don’t kill escaping prisoners.”  The Tattered Avenger said.
“Me smash ‘scaping pris’ners.”  Not Another Hero said.
“Maybe they are bad prisoners.”  Totally Awesome Dude said.
“Escaping Prisoners, whatever, let me at them.”  Super Spine Wolf said.
And with that, they all headed for the Behavior Adjustment Facility.

Super Spine Wolf let out a very big burp.  The burp caused his spines to shoot out and hit his teammates.
"Sorry, 'bout that."  Super Spine Wolf said.
"Great, just great."  Super Fire Dragon said
"We have to wait for his team to get back from the hospital."  Necrophillia said.
"Must we wait for that dragon, deary?"  Kolissa cooed.
They all laughed.

“Ok, when we go in there, be careful.  They have a very strict ‘keep off the grass’ policy.”  Super Fire Dragon informed the league.
Each league member clicked the door leading to the mission.  Each member of the league trying to remember all the instructions given by the contact through SFD.  Each league member hoping that SFD didn’t get the instructions wrong, again.  ‘Kill the escaping prisoners’, that can’t be right.
As they went through the door, they were greeted by Mother Mayhem.
“Look Necrophillia, she shops at the same boob store as you.”  SFD said.
“Hers are fake.”  Necrophillia said.
“I thought you got implants too.”  Wong Tong Suey asks.
“Shut up.”  Necrophillia scolded.
“Deary, yours look much better.  Hers are over-done.”  Kolissa added.
“Thanks.”  Necrophillia said sheepishly.
“Mother take boobs as primary and secondary powers.”  Not Another Hero said.
They all laughed.
“Can we please stop talking about boobs.”  Marshal Darkness insisted.
“Yes, we are supposed to be listening to her for clues as to how to defeat her.”  The Paragon Avenger said.
“At this point, all A/V chatted is just so much, ‘blah-blah-blah’, you know what I mean?”  The Fattinator said and asked.
“That’s right, one ‘I’m going to take over the world’ speech is pretty much like all of them.”  The Tattered Avenger complained.
“Will she ever shut up so we can get on with killing her?”  Flower Knight wondered out loud.
“What did she say about Nightstar and Siege being linked?”  Dr. Wos asked.
“Look, it doesn’t matter.  As so as she tires of boring us, we go in and kill Nightstar.  Makes perfect sense.”  SFD said.
“Dragon, that doesn’t make any sense.  Why don’t we kill Mother Mayhem right now?”  The Paragon Comptroller asked.
“That’s not how these things are done.  By the way, did I mention that we are not supposed to turn off the guard towers.”  SFD offered.
“What?”  Kolissa questioned.
“You have got to be joking.”  Totally Awesome Dude said.
“Dragon, go back and copy down the instructions correctly this time.”  Rare Earth ordered.
“Melissa, that’s telling that fool dragon.”  Marshall said.
“Hey, no kissing or hugging or kissing.”  Super Spine Wolf said.
“Dragon, are you sure you got the details of this mission right?”  Flower Knight asked.
“Have a little faith, baby.  Have a little faith.”  SFD said.
Mother Mayhem’s endless speech ended and they were transported inside the compound.
“Great, just great.”  SFD said.
The teams had gotten scrabbled in transit.  The league spent several minutes getting the teams back to the way they were before.
“Stupid game.”  The Paragon Avenger said.
They all laughed.

“I say we charge in there guns blazing and take out as many of them over-grown robots as we can.”  Some Nut with a Gun said.
“I’m not so sure about that idea, you nut.”  Super Spine Wolf said.
“Yes, I think we need a better strategy.”  The Fattinator advised.
“Let’s concentrate on that big mamba-jamba over there.”  The Tattered Avenger said.
“I don’t know, maybe we should pull some of the smaller ones and see how it goes.”  Flower Night said.
“Why would our guns be on fire?”  Guns McCoy asked.
“It’s just an expression.”  Some Nut with a Gun said.
“Yes, he meant to say that we should go in there with our accordions a blazing.”  Super Fire Dragon said.
“What are you talking about, Dragon?”  Dr. X-Rays asked.
“Never mind the dragon, deary, he is a bit off.”  Kolissa offered.
“I don’t know about you, but I don’t want my bagel to be a blazing.”  Umbral Schrumbral said.
“Eeeewwww, raw bagels.”  Totally Awesome Dude said.
“No, no, no!”  Some Nut with a Gun interjected.
“I could throw dirt clods at them, if that would help?”  Rare Earth said.
“Nobody’s rushing in there with anything a blazing, and nobody’s eating raw dirt clods.”  The Paragon Avenger said.
“Ok, smart-pants, what’s your plan?”  Some Nut with a Gun challenged.
“Look, all I am saying is give plans a chance.”  The Paragon Avenger said.
Kolissa shot him with a poisoned dart.
“Kolissa!”  Hero Commander shouted in disbelief.
“He was asking for it.”  Kolissa said.
“And people say that I have a quick temper.”  Necrophillia said.
“What did you say?”  Kolissa asked pointing her dart gun at Necrophillia.
“I said that people say I’m the smart one.”  Necrophillia said.
“Kolissa, what has gotten into you?”  Dr. Wos asked.
“I guess I agree with that nut with a gun, let’s charge.”  Kolissa yelled.
And with that they rushed the closest group of giant robots.  As they mowed down that group, they instinctively moved to the left to take-on the next group.  And then they moved to the right for another group.
“Hey, wait for me.”  The Paragon Avenger cried as he returned from the hospital.
After several of the giant robot groups had been destroyed, Hero Commander looked at Kolissa.
“Kolissa, I like your style.”  Hero Commander said.
“Thanks, deary, I try.”  Kolissa replied.
“I can see that you really like to help people.”  Hero Commander said.
Kolissa stopped in her tracks and said, “Why yes, I need to help people.”
“I feel that same way.”  Hero Commander agreed.
“You aren’t in it for just the glory, fortune and fame?”  Kolissa asked eagerly.
“Glory, fortune and fame?  Where do I saign?”  Tattered Avenger asked.
“I wasn’t talking to you.”  Kolissa said and then shot him with a poisoned dart.
“Kolissa, stop shooting the team with poisoned darts!”  SFD demanded.
“Oh, sorry.”  Kolissa said as she shot SFD with a poisoned dart.
“Now, Kolissa.”  The Paragon Comptroller protested right before Kolissa shot him with a poisoned dart.
“Tell me about my hero skills.”  Kolissa asked Hero Commander.
“Kolissa, you are very well put together as a hero, I mean.”  The Hero Commander said ignoring the growing pile of teammates poisoned by Kolissa at his feet.
“Of course,”  Kolissa said turning to shoot Totally Awesome Dude who was about to interrupt.  “And I think you command your pets very well.”
“Thank you, people like us can be misunderstood, but all we want to do is help people.”  The Hero Commander continued.
“Kolissa, why did you shoot …” Rare Earth asked as she ran over to the pile of heroes.
“I am often misunderstood.”  Kolissa said as she shot Rare Earth, Flower Night, Red Control, Vince Dastardly and Marshal Darkness with darts.
“And your precision aim with that dart gun is starting to turn me on.”  The Hero Commander said.
“I like your guns too.”  Kolissa giggled as she shot Not Another Hero, Umbral Schrumbral and Wong Tong Suey.
Dr. X-rays saw the growing pile of heroes and rushed over to give aid, but Kolissa shot him.
“Kolissa, that is enough.  Stop shooting the league so that we can finish the mission.”  Developer 13 said.
Kolissa shot him.
“Why did you shoot him?”  Richard Bourbon XXIV asked.
“He bored me.”  Kolissa answered before shooting the Bourbon.
“Ha, I guess that was a shot of Bourbon.”  Guns McCoy joked, so Kolissa shot him too.
“Kolissa, you started in the Rogue Isles, what was that like?”  Hero Commander asked.
“Well, first I had to write my own name on the list of the chosen ones.”  Kolissa said trying to impress Hero Commander and as she shot Necrophillia, Super Spine Wolf, The Fattinator and Dr. Wos.
“Kolissa, I can’t believe that you shot nearly all the heroes.”  Some Nut with a Gun said.
“Believe.”  Kolissa said as she fired off confusion on Some Nut with a Gun and The Paragon Avenger.
The Paragon Avenger managed to fire off blind, but hit Hero Commander instead of Kolissa.
“My eyes!”  Hero Commander shouted.
“That wasn’t very nice.”  Kolissa said shooting PA and the Nut with poisoned darts.
Kolissa helped Hero Commander walk to a nearby park bench to rest.
“This is the kind of thing I was talking about.”  Hero Commander began.
“Oh you poor thing, maybe we should have you lay down and take-off that tight costume.”  Kolissa said as her mind raced.
I don't know when City of Heroes will return, or do I?

“So what is this place?”  Developer 13 asked.
“I don’t know, I guess the hospital.”  Necrophillia replied.
“What is that aweful smell?”  Flower Night asked.
“The Tattered Avenger.”  Rare Earth answered.
“No, that other horrible smell.”  Flower Night asked.
“I don’t know, let’s ask that woman.”  Vince Dastardly suggested.
“Oh, she sells inspirations.  This is the hospital.”  The Paragon Comptroller surmised.
“That Kolissa really burns me up.”  Super Fire Dragon steamed.
“Kolissa burned the FIRE dragon.”  Red Control joked.
“I would laugh, but she burns me up too.”  The Paragon Avenger added.
“Everybody should stock-up on wakies so that we don’t have to come here again.”  Totally Awesome Dude instructed.
“That good idea.”  Wong Tong Suey said.
“Dude, got good idea.”  Not Another Hero agreed.
“I’m afraid that I must agree with the caveman, ‘Dude, got good idea’.”  Richard Bourbon XXIV said.
“So what are you going to do, Dragon?”  The Fattinator asked.
“As soon as I’m out of here, I’m kicking Kolissa from the team.”  SFD stormed.
“Guys, the door is locked.”  Marshal Darkness said.
“What!?”  SFD asked.
The Paragon Avenger went over to where Marshall was standing and tried the door.
“It says that the door will unlock in 30 minutes from now.”  The Paragon Avenger said.
“We’re stuck in here for thirty minutes!  Without air, food or water!  We will all die!”  Some Nut with a Gun over dramatized.
“I’m thinking you could go without food for thirty minutes, maybe.”  Umbral Schrumbral said.
“Everyone will please not panic.”  Super Spine Wolf said.
“Right, Not Another Hero and the Fattinator, break down that door.”  SFD ordered.
“I smash!”  Not Another Hero said.
“You can’t say that, remember.”  Rare Earth reminded.
“Oh that’s right.  It’s clobbering time!”  Not Another Hero said.
“You can’t say that either.”  Dr. X-Rays reminded.
“Oh crap!”  Not Another Hero said.
“You can’t say that neither.”  Some Nut with a Gun said.
“Sorry, I’ll huff and I’ll puff and I’ll blow that door in.”  Not Another Hero said.
“Are you trying to get us sued?”  SFD asked.
“Sorry, boss.”  Not Another Hero said.
“Hurray up and get that door open, you know this isn’t exactly the happiest place on earth.”  Necrophillia chimed in.
“Necrophillia, so help me, don’t you start.”  SFD warned.
After a few seconds of the Fattinator and Not Another Hero trying to break down the door, The Fattinator said, “I don’t know boss, that door takes a lickin’ and keeps on tickin.”
“You maybe be four times my size, but I can still take you out.”  SFD threatened.
“Let me try, after all, that door maybe be strong enough for a man, but made for a woman.”  Flower Night said.
“Stop it, stop it, stop it, we will have to pay for using those copyrighted lines.”  SFD said.
“Stop yelling at me, Dragon.  After all, Nationwide is on your side.”  Developer 13.
“All these advertising lines, I’m loving it.”  Guns McCoy said.
The Fire Dragon yelled.
“Me been beating on door, I need water.”  Not Another Hero said.
“Stay thirsty my friend.”  Richard Bourbon said.
Finally, the door burst open.  They all headed back to where they had been.
“Kolissa and Hero Commander have quit the team.”  SFD informed the league.
I don't know when City of Heroes will return, or do I?

“This is a nice place you have, Kolissa.”  Hero Commander said.
“It’s home, can I get you another drink?”  Kolissa asked.
“Yes, please, let me help you with that.”  Hero Commander said as he grabbed Kolissa when she leaned over to get his glass.
“Oh!”  Kolissa exclaimed.
Hero Commander wasted no time as he pulled Kolissa to his lap.
“Hello.”  Hero Commander said.
“Hello, to you too.”  Kolissa replied.
“Can you take off your helmet now?”  Hero Commander asked.
“Oh-of course.  I forgot that I was still wearing it.”  Kolissa said.
She stood up and grabbed her helmet with both hands.  Finding the locking mechanism, she removed the helmet and shook loose her hair.
“You are prettier than I imagined.”  Hero Commander said in amazement.
“Thanks.  You know, with in Arachnos, if you see the face of a night widow, you must marry her.”  Kolissa said.
“We’re not in Arachnos.”  Hero Commander said.
“Pity.”  Kolissa said as she made her way back to the couch where Hero Commander was seated.
“Nice to see you again.”  Hero Commander said.
“So, you wanna play Monopoly?”  Kolissa asked.
“Monopoly?”  Hero Commander asked.
“Oh, you’ll like the way I play it.  First, I cheat.  Secondly, I have re-written the rules.”  Kolissa said.
“Sounds interesting.”  Hero Commander replied.

“I told you about their strict ‘Keep Off The Grass’ policy.”  Super Fire Dragon scolded.
“Me forget.”  Not Another Hero said.
“Tell it to the nurse at the hospital.”  The Paragon Avenger said.
“Ahh, man.”  Not Another Hero said as he disappeared to the hospital.
“Listen-up everybody.”  The Paragon Comptroller said to the league.
“This is important.”  Dr. X-Rays said.
“Dr. Wos, you have been naughty.”  Necrophillia said imitating Ms. Liberty.
“No it wasn’t me, it was that Not Another Hero guy.”  Dr. Wos pleaded.
“Wos, she got you again, man, can’t you see that it’s just Necrophillia?”  Super Spine Wolf said.
“I panic.  I hear Ms. Liberty and I think holy rolly pully.  I have no room in my head for Necrophillia.”  Dr. Wos admitted.
“Dr. Wos, do as Necrophillia tells you to do.”  Necrophillia said imitating Ms. Liberty.
“Now that is Necrophillia.”  Dr. Wos said.
They all laughed.
“Ok, I want to remind everyone that if you cut across and walk on the grass, they will fire their lasers at you.”  Guns McCoy said.
“I’m barefoot.  The grass feels so good.”  The Tattered Avenger said.
“Sorry, TA, use the sidewalk.”  Marshal Darkness said.
“Maybe we could chip in and buy TA a new pair of loafers.”  Umbral Schrumbral suggested.
“No way, he would probably sell them to buy food or some other non-sense like that.”  SFD advised.
“I guess you’re right.”  Umbral Schrumbral conceded.
“Hey!”  The Tattered Avenger whined.
They all laughed.
“So what’s the plan, SFD?”  Dr. X-Rays asked.
They all laughed.
“Follow me, we’re charging NightStar.”  SFD ordered.
They did charge NightStar.  They had to battle her minions and her powers, but somehow, they managed to pull-off a win.
“Dude, that was brutal.”  Marshal Darkness said.
“Yes, it was.”  Totally Awesome Dude said.
“No, I meant everybody, it was tattered.”  Marshal Darkness said.
“What did I do?”  The Tattered Avenger said.
“No, not you, I give up.”  Marshal Darkness said.
“Don’t give up, honey, there’s more to this mission.”  Rare Earth said.
“That’s right.  Dr. Wos, take your team and set up on the tennis courts.”  SFD barked.
“Righto”  Dr. Wos acknowledged.
“Necrophillia, cover the North doors.”  SFD ordered.
“Good, plan, deary.  Can somebody silence this dragon.”  Necrophillia said imitating Kolissa.
“Not funny, Necrophillia.  My team, follow me, we will take the helipad and the South doors.”  SFD commanded.
“Ok, deploy your pets when the timer reaches 2 minutes, and not before for maximum coverage.”  The Paragon Avenger said.
“We could sure use Kolissa’s Arachnos pets about now.”  Rare Earth said.
“I agree.”  Red Control said watching the clock.
“This reminds me of the time, I was trying to optimize a website when parallel streaming graphics channels.”  Developer 13 said.
“NO, shut him up, not now, Dev!!!”  Richard Bourbon cried.
But it was too late; Flower Night and Some Nut with a Gun had fallen asleep.
”Great, just great.”  SFD shouted.
“Sorry Dragon, I keep forgetting about the side-affects.”  Developer 13 said.
“Maybe we all could take a nap, who would know?”  Umbral Schrumbral said.
“No, escaping prisoners will be bursting out of those doors at any moment.”  SFD snapped.
The doors opened and frightened prisoners run out in a frenzy.
“It’s go time.”  SFD shouted.
I don't know when City of Heroes will return, or do I?

“There’s hundreds of them!”  Developer 13 cried.
“Keep it up, don’t stop!”  The Paragon Avenger ordered.
“Stay at your posts, let the blasters take the runners, use your holds, activate your pets.”  Super Fire Dragon barked out orders.
“I’ve never seen him like this before."  Rare Earth observed.
“Yes, Super Fire Dragon is full of surprises.”  Necrophillia replied.
“Stop talking and focus people, more of them will be on the way.”  SFD was in the zone.  He felt like a general commanding his troops.
“Yo, Nut.  Runner heading South.”  Red Control said.
“I got the little bugger.”  Some Nut with a Gun said as he loaded another clip into his assault rifle and opened up on the runner.
“Bourbon!  Look alive, runner going East.”  The Tattered Avenger said.
“Here prisoner, have a drink, on you.”  Richard Bourbon said as he sprayed a runner with that wonderful golden brown liquid for which he is named.
“I am having trouble keeping up.”  Flower Night said struggling to fire her arrows quickly enough at all the runners.
“Let me help.”  Guns McCoy said as he swept the left side with full auto on.
“Scrappers, help the blasters by running down runners.”  SFD ordered.
“Right chief.”  Dr. Wos said as he ran after a runner and used his broadsword.
“Not Hero, look behind you.”  Wong Tong Suey said.
“You not pass.”  Not Another Hero said as he turned around and punched the prisoner running past him.
They kept fighting like that for several more minutes.

"That was friggin' awesome!"  The Fattinator shouted in a rare display of emotion.
"What did I do?"  Totally Awesome Dude replied.
"Oh brother."  The Fattinator said.
"Good work people, we didn't allow a single escapee to leave the compound."  Super Fire Dragon congratulated.
"Can I rest now?"  Flower Night said exhausted.
They all laughed.
