“What do you mean both the A/V’s at the same time!”  The Paragon Avenger asked with surprise.
“Dragon, you done messed up the mission.”  Rare Earth said.
“Fool Dragon.”  Marshal Darkness said.
“Dragon, are you sure you are getting the mission details correct?  You know they are important, don’t you?”  The Tattered Avenger asked.
“Details schetails.”  Super Fire Dragon shrugged.
“Hey, that’s my line.”  Umbral Schrumbral responded.
“Dragon, we demand that you talk to your contact again and get the mission correctly.”  Richard Bourbon XXIV said.
“Dragon who makes mission wrong, soon find no team.”  Wong Tong Suey said.
“Yeah, Dragon, do it right for a change.”  Vince Dastardly said.
“Dragon say do this, we know that can’t possible be the correct way to run this mission.”  Not Another Hero said.
“What happened to your accent.”  The Fattinator asked Not Another Hero.
“Sometimes, accent gone.”  Not Another Hero said.
“Sometimes your role-playing isn’t as good as it can be.”  Super Spine Wolf said.
“Yes, talking like a caveman does get a bit tedious.”  Not Another Hero said.
“Well, however you say it, your right, that dragon needs to get his act together.”  Flower Night said.
“Trust me; I know what I’m doing.”  SFD said reassuringly.
“Ok Dragon, tell us again why we have to fight 2 archvillains at the same time.”  The Paragon Comptroller said.
“Well because that woman with gynecomastia linked them together.”  SFD explained.
“Gynecomastia?  What’s that?”  Some Nut with a Gun asked.
“I believe that the dragon is referring to that woman who was monologging at the beginning of this mission.”  Totally Awesome Dude interjected.
“Right, she took boobs as primary and secondary powers.”  Some Nut with a Gun said.
They all laughed.
“So how did she link them?”  Dr. Wos asked.
“Who knows; who cares?”  Necrophillia said.
“That’s right; the point is that we can’t break the link.”  SFD expounded.
“So we got to fight them at the same time, lovely.”  Flower Night said disingenuously.
“Which one do you want, Seige or Nightstar?”  SFD asked Not Another Hero.
“Me take Seige, you grab Nightstar.”  Not Another Hero said.
“I beg your pardon.”  SFD said a bit confused.
“He means for you to herd Nightstar.”  The Paragon Avenger explained.
“Oh, right.  That I can do.”  Sfd said.
They all laughed.
I don't know when City of Heroes will return, or do I?

“Siege is down to around half his hit points, how is Nightstar coming?”  The Paragon Avenger asked.
“Not so good, only about a quarter down.”  Some Nut with a Gun answered.
“I’ll switch to Nightstar.”  The Paragon Comptroller said.
“That won’t be enough.”  Super Fire dragon said.
“I’ll switch too.”  Guns McCoy said.
“Do you want me to switch?”  Flower Night asked.
“I’m not so sure that that would make any difference.”  Some Nut with a Gun said.
They all laughed, even Siege.
“Man we have been at this for hours; I’m starting to get tired.”  Vince Dastardly said.
“Keep up the fight, don’t quit now.”  Red Control said.
“What are you, like a cheerleader or something?”  Umbral Schumbral questioned.
“Well, I haven’t said anything for a while, I thought that now was my big chance.”  Red Control said.
“No wonder that guy was deleted.”  SFD said.
“Look, we can take a break, but they will just heal and we will have to start all over again.”  Necrophillia said.
“And besides, if you get into the groove of it, this is kind of fun.”  Marshal Darkness said.
“Yeah, it beats standing around just chatting.”  Rare Earth said.
“I am so glad that we talked Ms. Liberty out of shutting down the game.”  Vince Dastardly said.
“Me too, imagine if this was only a chat client or something.”  Dr. Wos said.
“Still, Ms. Liberty is spread kind of thin, being in three places at once.”  The Tattered Avenger said.
“Yes, but if anybody could do it, Ms. Liberty could.”  SFD said.  The Dragon has always admired Ms. Liberty for her organizational skills, her ability to control the chaos that is Hero Corps and, of course, the way she can easily add and subtract numbers.
“Hey Dragon, I was meaning to ask you.  What are you going to do with Kolissa?”  Necrophillia asked.
“Oh I don’t know.  Send her soul to hell, maybe.”  SFD replied.
“Not funny!”  Necrophillia cried and almost sent her zombies to attack SFD, but she remembered in time.
“Oh, I am sorry.  I couldn’t resist such a joke in poor taste.”  SFD said.
“Well.”  Necrophillia said pondering her next move.
“Forgive the Dragon?”  SFD asked.
“Stop with the puppy dog eyes, Dragon, sometimes you make me crazy.”  Necrophillia shouted.
“Puppy Dog eyes get them every time.”  Not Another Hero said.
“I usually use strong drink.”  Richard Bourbon XXIV admitted.
“Wow, when a member of the royal family, and 32nd in line for the Spanish titular throne can’t get a date, what chance do I have?”  The Tattered Avenger asked.
“Zero; until you discover the magic of soap and water and maybe Brillo pads.”  Dr. X-Rays joked.
“Yeah, I was going to say that it is bad enough that you heroes come in here and beat me up, twice, but do I have to smell him too?”  Nightstar said.
“Wow, even the A/V noticed.”  Totally Awesome Dude said in awe.
“Hey, it is all part of my persona, my presence.”  The tattered Avenger said.
“Well your presence is making my eyes water.”  Nightstar said.
They all laughed.

“I got blisters on my fingers!”  Some Nut with a Gun yelled.
“Man, that was intense.”  Necrophillia gasped.
“Good job, team, I mean league.”  Super Fire Dragon said.
“Everybody, take a knee, just in case.”  Dr. X-Rays advised.
Healers were always trying to get people to rest, but how can they rest after a battle like that.  They are just too pumped.
“Hey, you Nut, do you have any ammo left?  I ran out.”  Guns McCoy asked.
“You ran out?  What were you doing, if not shooting.”  Super Spine Wolf asked.
“I HAVE a secondary powerset.”  Guns McCoy said.
“Oh right, good job.”  Super Spine Wolf said defensively.
Some Nut with a Gun fired several rounds into the air.
“Sorry, McCoy, I’m fresh out.”  Some Nut with a Gun said.
“One of these days, I’m going to murder that nut.”  Guns McCoy muttered under his breath.
“Ok, people, settle.  Do whatever it is that you do between missions.  I’m going to check with my contact to see if this ruse worked.”  Super Fire Dragon said.
“Well, ok, but don’t use the word ‘ruse’ when you ask the guy, this time.”  The Fattinator said.
“The Dragon isn’t THAT stupid!”  Red Control said.
“You would be surprised.”  Flower Night commented.
The dragon left the area.
“Hey, I say we take a look around.”  Vince Dastardly said.
“Who said that?”  Totally Awesome Dude asked.
“Dude!”  Developer 13 replied.
“Haven’t you recognized Vince’s voice by now?”  Marshal Darkness asked.
“D’oh.”  Totally Awesome Dude said.
“I want to congratulate all of you heroes, except Dr. Wos; he was slacking off.”  Necrophillia said imitating Ms. Liberty.
“Ms. Liberty, I wasn’t slacking off, honest.”  Dr. Wos pleaded falling for her prank---again.
They all laughed.
“Wos, didn’t we tell you not to be so gullible?”  The Paragon Comptroller asked.
“He’s always been hard-headed.”  The Paragon Avenger said.
“Yes, but he is very good with that sword.”  The Tattered Avenger said.
“Necrophillia, must you?”  Dr. Wos threatened.
“Look Wos, when I see a weakness, I pounce on it.”  Necrophillia said.
“Girlfriend, ‘nuffs a ‘nuff.”  Rare Earth said.
“Aw shucks, I never get to have any fun.”  Necrophillia pouted.
They all laughed.

Meanwhile

“You cheated!”  Hero Commander insisted.
“I warned you.”  Kolissa cooed.
“Oh yes, you did, I see.”  Hero Commander back-peddled.
“So did you have fun playing Monoploy---my way?”  Kolissa asked.
“Yes, it was very different than the way I used to play it with my nephew.”  Hero Commander replied.
“I should hope so.”  Kolissa said.
“Where on Earth did you get the idea to add kittens to the game?”  Hero Commander asked.
“Well, I remember growing-up, we always had … “  Kolissa reminisced.
Just then the phone rang interrupting their chat.
“Who could that be?”  Hero Commander asked as he put on his uniform costume military jacket.
“Hello.”  Kolissa said sternly into the phone.
"Good afternoon, my name is Ella, If I may have a moment of your time, I am working on a small scale study on the quality of life through positive outlooks.  If you would let me, I would like to ask you to briefly describe how you see the world around you and what you find is the best about it."  The young female voice said over the phone.
“Ella, this is Kolissa, and I see the world around me as targets and victims.  There are people to help and people to knock-down.  You see, Lord Recluse has a plan to help people take what others hoard for themselves.”  Kolissa started.
“Lord Recluse?  Are you sure that you aren’t a double agent?!”  Hero Commander cried.
“Umm, I see, so you believe that people are basically good.”  Ella asked.
“I’m not a double agent, deary, I just understand Lord Recluse, and … “  Kolissa explained.
“I can’t believe that I’m hearing this.”  Hero Commander shouted.
“No, of course not.  I feel that people are scum, unless they need my help.”  Kolissa said into the phone.
“That does it.  I’m going for a walk, alone.”  Hero Commander said as he stormed out of Kolissa apartment.
“Ella, was it?  Why don’t you came over to my place and we can discuss it at length, deary.”  Kolissa said as her mind raced.
“Ummm, I think it’s my bedtime, and I …”  Ella started, she was beginning to feel that this Kolissa has something naughty on her mind.
“Non-sense, you come over here and let Aunt Kolissa explain it all to you, deary.”  Kolissa was planning something as she spoke into the phone.
“Shame on you.”  Ella shouted as she slammed down the phone.  She decided right then and there to never play with the phone again.
“Ella?  She hung up, the little brat.  Now, where did that hunk of hero go?”  Kolissa said to her self as she walked to the door.
It was a clear, moonless night.  The air was crisp, but not too chilly.  Kolissa pulled out and threw down her rocket board.  Kolissa loved her rocket board.  It wasn’t the fastest way to fly or travel, but it had a coolness about it that was unmatched in Paragon City.  It also allowed her to take other powers instead of those fly powers.  As she rose, she looked around.  Hero Commander could fly, but Founders’ Falls wasn’t that big.  As she scanned the night sky, she thought about Ella.  That kid won’t be calling back any time soon that’s for sure.  What a dangerous game, calling up perfect strangers in a city full of weirdos.  Anything could have happened.  Kolissa spotted The Hero Commander.
“Come here, Mr. Commander.”  Kolissa shouted.
The Hero Commander stopped and headed towards Kolissa.  He had forgotten why he had left.  Somehow, Kolissa made him feel protected and safe and loved.
“Kolissa, want to play Yatzee?  I’ve changed the rules, and …”  Hero Commander asked.
“Hush, let’s go back inside and discuss our options further.”  Kolissa offered.
They went back into Kolissa’s apartment.

“We finished that mission, like you asked.”  Super Fire Dragon informed.
“Yes, very well done, thank you.”  Calvin Scott replied.
“So we need to know about the Syndicate.”  SFD said.
“Yes, the Syndicate.”  Calvin said with disdain in his voice.
“Is the Syndicate helping the resistance?”  SFD asked.
“The one masquerading as Flour Night knows the answer better than I.”  Calvin admitted.
“Did you say Flower or Flour?”  SFD said trying to make the two words sound different.
“I said Flower-Flour-Flower.” Calvin said trying to figure out which is which.
“Flour-Flower-Flour?”  SFD asked
“No, Flour-Flour-Flower.”  Calvin replied.
“So Flower-Flour-Flour?”  SFD asked.
This went on like this for a lot longer than you would expect a grown man and a dragon to talk about flowers and flour.
“Super Fire Dragon, I need to speak with you.”  Kolissa said over SFD’s two-way communicator wrist-watch.
“Necrophillia!  I don’t have time for you’re non-sense.”  SFD said sharply into his communicator.
“Dragon, this isn’t Necrophillia.  Now, deary, come to my place on Founders’ Falls.  Kolissa out.”  Kolissa said.
“Flower-Flower-Flower?”  SFD asked.
“Flour-Flour-Flour.”  Calvin replied.
“Got it.”  SFD said and left for Founders’ Falls.

“Ok, let’s all meet back at Studio 54 when we’re ready for the dragon.”  Paragon Avenger suggested.
“Great idea, I need to go BUY some ammo.”  Guns McCoy said.
“Not me.”  Some Nut with a Gun said shooting bullets in the air.
“Hey, you nut, are you trying to get us killed?”  Rare Earth shouted.
“That Nut is a nut.”  Not Another Hero said.
“So, what are you going to do while we wait, Necrophillia?”  Totally Awesome Dude asked.
“Oh, I don’t know, maybe dig-up an old boy friend or two.”  Necrophillia said with a smirk.
“Eeeeewwwww.”  Flower Night exclaimed.
“I meant look up, he he, did I say dig up?”  Necrophillia said.
“Girlfriend, you said ‘Dig’ and you meant ‘Dig’.”  Rare Earth said.
“Well, yes, but it’s not like that.  I mean I can explain.”  Necrophillia pleaded.
“Dude, never, never ask Necrophillia what she does in her spare time.”  Developer 13 said.
“Yes, we really don’t want to know.”  Vince Dastardly said.
“How does she manage to have sex with a dead guy, I mean he’s dead, nothing works.”  Red Control wondered out loud.
“Necrophillia, I beg you, do NOT answer his question.”  The Fattinator said.
“I’m too much of a lady to kiss and tell.”  Necrophillia said haughtily.
“Eeeeewwwww.”  Flower Night exclaimed.
“Ok, ok, Bourbon, what are you going to do while we wait.”  Totally Awesome Dude asked.
“Get hammered, I mean sample the finest Bourbons and distilled spirits available.”  Richard Bourbon XXIV replied.
“Eeeeewwwww.”  Flower Night exclaimed.
“He is talking about booze, deary.”  Necrophillia said imitating Kolissa.
“Kolissa, you frink!  Why did you shoot me with a poisoned dart?”  Dr. Wos yelled.
“Because you are so gullible.”  Necrophillia replied still imitating Kolissa.
“Why I ought to teach you … “  Dr. Wos started.
They all laughed interrupting him.
“That wasn’t Kolissa was it?”  Dr. Wos asked.
“Not even close.”  Marshal Darkness replied.
“It was Necrophillia again, was it?”  Dr. Wos asked.
“Yes it was, and you fell for it hook, line and sinker.”  Paragon Comptroller said.
Dr. Wos drew his sword and rushed Necrophillia.  Umbral Schrumbral put a gravity well on him.  The Tattered Avenger took his sword from him.
“Wos, you can’t behead Necrophillia.  Sure, we all want to at times, but we must resist those urges.”  Red Control told Dr. Wos.
“I was only going to kill her by just a little bit.”  Dr. Wos said struggling to get out of the gravity well.
They all laughed.
“I’m not completely sure that she isn’t undead herself.”  Super Spine Wolf said softly to Dr. Wos and those around him.
“I heard that.”  Necrophillia said.
“Well, are you?”  Flower Night asked.
“No, I’m straight.”  Necrophillia answered.
“Are you undead?”  Flower Night said clarifying the question and ignoring the earlier answer.
“It would add to my mystic.  An undead necromancer with necrophilia, but no.  I’m as much alive as the next person.”  Necrophillia said.
“Necrophillia, how can you prefer the cold dead body of a corpse, to the warm-blooded animated man?”  Guns McCoy asked.
“Some people like Coke, some people like Pepsi.”  Necrophillia said.
“Eeeeewwwww.”  Flower Night exclaimed.
“Now come on now, she was talking about soft drinks.”  Totally Awesome Dude insisted.
They all laughed.

The little fire dragon was on edge.  Yes, Kolissa called him there, but she did kill off the entire team.  The trip to the hospital was beneficial for the team to buy inspirations and get acquainted with the workings of the Behavior Adjustment Facility’s hospital.  He always considered it to be poor judgment to kill your teammates.  Super Fire Dragon also considers himself to be his team’s hero.  They look to him for leadership and help when they need it, and make bad cheese jokes when they don’t need his help.
Kolissa needed his help.
“Dragon!  Good, you’re here.  Get in here, quickly.”  Kolissa whispered-shouted loud enough for the fire dragon to hear.
“Kolissa, what is it?”  SFD asked as he walked into her apartment with his toggles fully charged.
As the dragon walked in, he could see The Hero Commander lying face-down in the middle of the floor.  The Commander’s pants were around his ankles and his shirt was unbuttoned.
“He tripped.  And fell.”  Kolissa offered.
“Is he dead?”  SFD asked.
“No, of course not, don’t be silly.  I don’t think so.”  Kolissa rambled.
Super Fire Dragon checked, no he wasn’t dead.  Apparently, he did fall and hit his head knocking him out cold.
“He’s breathing.  What happened?”  SFD asked.
“Well, Dragon, we were playing Yatzee and … “  Kolissa started.
“And he rolled a cheese.”  SFD said playing along.
“No, Dragon.  It was nothing like that.  Eeeewww, get your mind out of the gutter, deary.”  Kolissa said trying to confuse the dragon.
“Oh, sorry, I meant no offense.”  SFD apologized out of habit.
“Anyway, he had just come in from a walk, and decided to open his manly shirt.”  Kolissa cooed.
“Easy girl, stick to the facts.”  SFD said forgetting to sound like Joe Friday from the TV show Dragnet.
“Well, he must’ve undid his pants too, because when he rolled double boxcars, and jumped up to shout ‘Yatzee’, he tripped, fell, hit his head and passed out.”  Kolissa explained.
“Were you playing strip Yatzee?”  SFD asked.
“Ummmmm, no.”  Kolissa said unbelievably.
“Ok,”  SFD said.
“So I tried to bring him around, but nothing’s working.”  Kolissa said.
“I say, let’s call Dr. X-Rays and … “  SFD suggested.
“NO!  Dragon, I trust you, we are good friends, right?”  Kolissa said.
“Is this one of those ‘Hold-The-Flashlight-While-I-Dig-A-Shallow-Grave’ type deals of a friendship?”  SFD asked.
“Dragon, no, just help me get him back to vertical.”  Kolissa said.
“I think he’s vertical hold is shot.”  SFD quipped.
“Very funny, try giving him a purple.”  Kolissa said.
“That’s for holds and confusion.  Let’s try a blue.”  SFD replied.
“No, that’s for endurance, he looks rested.  How about a yellow?”  Kolissa asked.
“Nope, I don’t got a yellow.”  SFD fired back.
“I already tried a green, do you have a red?”  Kolissa asked.
“I’m a tank, that’s about all I carry.”  SFD said.
“Well, give him one.”  Kolissa said.
“I don’t know.”  SFD pondered.
“You don’t think that it will help?”  Kolissa asked.
“Oh, it isn’t that.”  SFD replied.
“Then what is it?”  Kolissa demanded to know.
“It isn’t everyday that you find a superhero so completely helpless.”  SFD said with a mischievous look on his face.
“I’m beginning to see the possibilities myself.”  Kolissa mused.
I don't know when City of Heroes will return, or do I?

After several funny poses, they finally found a camera.
There will be pictures of Hero Commander on Facebook and YouTube.

“Oh hey, Super Fire Dragon, Why does my head hurt?  When did you get here?  Yikes!  What am I wearing?”  Hero Commander woke up to find Super Fire Dragon in Kolissa’s apartment.  He was not amused when he discovered that he was wearing a Marvin the Martian costume.
“He’s awake!”  SFD yelled to Kolissa.
”Where are my clothes?!”  Hero Commander demanded.
“You’re going to laugh.”  SFD began.
“I’ll bet I won’t.”  Hero Commander countered.
“You see, it’s like this, bye.”  SFD said as he made a mad dash for the door.
“Dragon!”  Hero Commander and Kolissa yelled after the dragon.
Kolissa and Hero Commander looked at each other for a long moment.
“Honey, where’s my super suit?”  Hero Commander asked Kolissa.  Hero Commander could’ve flown after the dragon, but he was still wearing that ridiculous costume.
“It’s hanging up in the hall closet.”  Kolissa said without thinking.
Hero Commander walked over to the closet and found his beloved costume and his flight suit.  He also found something troubling.
“Kolissa, what is this?”  Hero Commander asked as he pulled from the closet a Bo Peep costume that seemed to be in his size and it was hanging up next to his costumes.
“Oh, that old thing, the previous tenants must’ve left it here.”  Kolissa lied.
“What happened, last night?”  Hero Commander said as he started to change into his costume.
“What do you remember?”  Kolissa asked.
“I remember playing Monopoly, with kittens added to the game.”   Hero Commander said rubbing his head.
“Yes, that’s right, deary, we played my version of Monopoly.  What else?”  Kolissa asked.
“I remember you giving me something to drink that tasted funny.”  Hero Commander said.
“It was diet cola; you really should cut back on the sugar.”  Kolissa stated.
“And then the phone rang.”  Hero Commander replied.
“Yes, and you got mad for no reason, then what.”  Kolissa pumped.
“I jumped up; fell down, and the room spun and went dark.”  Hero Commander said.
“Yes, you fell and hit your head.”  Kolissa said.
“And then Super Fire Dragon came over, and you two put me in silly poses and …  And dressed me up as Bo Peep!”  Hero Commander said suddenly remembering what had happened while he was semi-conscience.
“Oh it wasn’t that bad.”  Kolissa said.
“Not that bad!”  Hero Commander said angrily.
“It was only for the pictures.”  Kolissa admitted.
“What PIC-TURES?”  Hero Commander flumed.
“Now calm down, it was all in good fun, besides who is going to search for Hero Bo Commander Peep on YouTube?”  Kolissa said.
“You posted pictures to YouTube?”  Hero Commander asked in shock and amazement.
“No, of course not, deary.”  Kolissa said.
“Oh good.”  Hero Commander said.
“We posted video.”  Kolissa said.
“Video!”  Hero Commander shouted.
“It’s no big deal …”  Kolissa began.
“No big deal?  You posted video of me wearing a cute dress on the internet!”  Hero Commander interrupted.
“No, that dress isn’t very cute, now I have this red number that would have been perfect … “  Kolissa began.
“Augh!  There’s no talking to you.”  Hero commander interrupted again as he stormed out of Kolissa’s apartment.  He had gotten changed into his military costume, but he decided to fly away without changing into his flight suit.
“He’ll be back; he left his cane.”  Kolissa giggled to her self.

"Guys, guys, guess what I found."  Necrophillia said.
"Oh no, I'm not falling for that.  That's Necrophillia doing the voice of ..."  Dr. Wos replied.
"Doing the voice of whom, you idiot?"  Super Spine Wolf interrupted.
“Hey, you want a piece of me, huh?”  Dr. Wos threatened.
“Look, Wos, I like you, but come on already, will ya?”  Super Spine Wolf responded.
“Look, Fellas, this is bigger than your little spat.”  Necrophillia interjected.
“Ok, what’s so important?”  The Paragon Avenger asked.
“Well, I was searching on-line for something, and I accidently entered ‘Hero Bo Commander Peep’ into the gah-gah© search engine.”  Necrophillia explained.
“So?”  The Paragon Avenger asked.
“So, look at this.”  Necrophillia showed a video on her phone of The Hero Commander wearing a Bo Peep costume with the ‘I’m a Little Teapot’ song playing.  Hero Commander looked to be drugged, drunk or sleep-walking, but the video is hilarious.  They watched it over and over again, laughing harder and harder each time.
“This could mean only one thing.”  The Paragon Comptroller reasoned.
“Yes, what does it mean?”  Red Control asked.
“Kolissa is back to normal.”  The Paragon Comptroller surmised.
“Hello, team, and league.”  The Hero Commander said as he walked into Studio 54 and found his old gang.
“Sorry, Bo, there ain’t no sheep here.”  Developer 13 laughed.
“Seriously Commander, you should wear that costume more often, show off them legs.”  Necrophillia joked.
“Oh very funny.  Look they took advantage of my condition.”  The Hero Commander said.
“Wait, did you say ‘they’?”  Flower Night asked.
“Yes, Kolissa and that Dragon.”  Hero Commander answered.
“Do you mean Super Fire Dragon?”  Flower Night asked.
“Yes.”  Hero Commander replied.
“That dragon was supposed to be talking to the contact, not playing dress-up.”  Necrophillia commented.
“Why can’t it be both?”  Super Fire Dragon said as he walked into Studio 54 where the league had gathered.
“Dragon!”  Hero Commander shouted.
“Look, Hero Commander, we were just having a little fun with those costumes.  You understand.  It’s not like we published all of the pictures on the internet.  Kolissa said that she was going to keep a few back to cheese mail you with, or something like that.”  SFD said.
“Cheese Mail?”  Necrophillia asked.
“I think he means blackmail.”  Flower Night stated.
“Kolissa wouldn’t dare.  After all I played monopoly with her and she had added kittens to the game.”  Hero Commander insisted.
“You played Kittenopoly, with Kolissa?”  Flower Night said stunned.
“Kittenopoly?  You make it sound like a game that Kolissa didn’t invent.”  Hero Commander said.
“That’s right.  The Driver Brothers released that game several years ago.”  Flower Night explained.
“I’m getting more and more impressed with Kolissa.  Do you guys mind if I ditch this league?”  Hero Commander asked.
“Go!  You won’t be much good to us, if you are thinking about her.”  SFD said.
The Hero commander left, as Super Fire Dragon explained what Calvin had told him.
“But I don’t know nothing about the Syndicate.  Excepted that they have 500 members shoring up the Resistance’s left flank.  And the Syndicate is planning a major push into Imp. City in a week or two.”  Flower Night said.
“Apparently, you do know something about the Syndicate.”  SFD stated.
“Yes, Flower Night spent several hours with the Syndicate leaders before you rescued us.”  Totally Awesome Dude recalled.
“Tell everything that you can remember about the Syndicate.”  SFD ordered.
Flower Night and Totally Awesome Dude began reciting all the information that they over-heard while being held captive by the Syndicate.
“You’ve done well, heroes.  We are all proud of you.”  Necrophillia said imitating Ms. Liberty.
“Ms. Liberty, we were just doing our jobs.”  Dr. Wos said.
“Not you, Wos.  You’re fired.”  Necrophillia said imitating Ms. Liberty still.
“Please no, Ms. Liberty, I have a bookie and several bartenders to support.”  Dr. Wos pleaded.
They all laughed.
“Wos, it’s Necrophillia.”  SFD said.
“Oh.  Yes, I knew that.  I was playing along.”  Dr. Wos said.
They all laughed, because nobody believe him.

As he knocked on the door his mind raced.  He really liked Kolissa.  She is beautiful, strong, self-assured, a bit of a trickster, playful, fun to be around, a bit of a con artist, practical, scary, very smart and eight foot tall.  That last one really turned him on; she seemed older, but not too old.  It’s complicated, but there was something about having a girlfriend who is nearly two feet taller than he.  The thought of pictures of him that she might use to blackmail him with made him angry and impressed with Kolissa that she held the “best” pictures back.  He wanted to go in to her apartment and get even, but he also wanted to give her a great big kiss.  The more he thought the more he got confused.  Does he love her?  Does she love him?  What is he doing?  He turned to walk away when the door sprung open.
“Hero Commander, you came back!”  Kolissa shouted.  She still hasn’t gotten over throwing doors open and being very loud.
“Yes, Kolissa, I want to have a word with you.”  Hero Commander said getting over the shock of the door and Kolissa.
“Come in, come in.  You are always welcome, deary.”  Kolissa said in a more normal voice.
“I understand why you and that dragon took advantage of my condition.”  Hero Commander started as he entered Kolissa’s apartment, walking pass her so that she could close the door, and turning to face her.
“Please, have a seat, do you want anything to drink, tea perhaps.”  Kolissa said as she closed the door and turned to face him.
“Funny, no tea for me, thanks.”  Hero Commander said as he found a seat on the couch.
“I like you HC, and so I removed the videos from the internet.”  Kolissa said as she sat in her favorite chair across from the couch.
“That is great news.  I want all the pictures destroyed.”  Hero Commander said.
“Ok, I will destroy my copies.”  Kolissa agreed.
“Kolissa, I found out about Kittenopoly.”  Hero Commander admitted.
“Umm, I can explain …”  Kolissa started.
“No need, I get you.”  Hero Commander interrupted.
“You do?”  Kolissa said.
“Yes, deary, you are special.  You want to help people, and you want people to know who is helping them.”  Hero Commander said.
“Wow, I think that is spot-on as they say.”  Kolissa said.
“Kolissa, I think we should start dating exclusively.”  Hero Commander said.
“You want to go steady?”  Kolissa asked.
“Well, I want to see only you, and I want you to see only me.  Going steady sounds so high school.”  Hero Commander said.
“Ok, I’m not seeing anybody right now anyway.  My trip through the mental ward kind of put a damper on things.”  Kolissa admitted.
“I have had a few relationships, but you are the most interesting person I have ever met.”  Hero Commander said.
“That sounds like a plan, you want to go grab a late dinner?”  Kolissa asked.
“Nope, I want to cook for you.  Do you like spaghetti?”  Hero Commander asked.
“My favorite, shorty.”  Kolissa answered.
They both laughed.

“I wish Kolissa was here.”  Umbral Schrumbral said.
“Why, so we could beat the tea out of her?”  Necrophillia asked.
“Well, yes I do want an explanation for being shot with a poison dart.”  Umbral Scrumbral said.
“When I get my paws on her, she’s going to wish I haven’t.”  Super Spine Wolf snarled.
“I think that my zombies would love to have a chat with Kolissa.”  Marshal Darkness smirked.
“Yeah, yeah, I get the hostility, but I was thinking …”  Umbral Schrumbral started.
“I want to have a word with her myself.”  Some Nut with a Gun said firing a burst of rounds into the air.
“Oh!”  Rare Earth exclaimed.  “You Nut, you startled me.  Nearly gave me a heart attack, you darn fool.”  Rare earth continued.
“I’ve been wanting to try my laser beam eyes.  Kolissa would make an excellent target.”  Dr. X-Rays said.
“Doc, she’s literally twice your size.  You wouldn’t stand a chance.”  Dr. Wos said.
“And you think you could do better, deary.”  Necrophillia said imitating Kolissa.
Dr. Wos pulled out his boardsword and turned to attack Kolissa.
“Where’d she go?”  Dr. Wos asked.
Everybody laughed.
“Anyway, I mean that I wish Kolissa was here to figure out what we should do next.  This dragon doesn’t got a clue.”  Umbral Schrumbral said.
“Hey, that was mean.”  Super Fire Dragon said.
“Should I hack him to pieces, I already have my sword ready?”  Dr. Wos asked.
“Look, I’m planning something with Ms. Liberty.  These things take time.”  SFD explained.
“I say we attack the Syndicate, now!”  Red Control incited.
“Yeah!  There are nearly two dozen of us, and only five hundred of them.”  Flower Night agreed.
“Flower, you might want to do the math on that one.”  The Paragon Comptroller suggested.
“I say, let the giant lizard think.  Go ahead fool dragon, think.”  Rare Earth stated.
“Gee, thanks.”  SFD replied.
“Is it my turn to say what I would like to do to Kolissa, because I would like to serve her whiskey, young, barrel-strength whiskey.”  Richard Bourbon XXIV said.
“No, we go past crushing Kolissa.  We talk killing Syndicate.”  Not Another Hero spoke.
“Now see here, we all want to take a poke at Kolissa.”  Guns McCoy said.
“Especially Hero Commander from what I heard.  Whooooooooooa.”  Developer 13 said.
“Oh yes, those pictures were embarrassing.”  Flower Night said.
“No, not the pictures.  Hero Commander and Kolissa are …”  Totally Awesome Dude began.
“They are playing house.”  Developer 13 said.
“Really?  Who is playing Dr. Wilson.”  Flower Night asked.
“Seriously?”  Totally Awesome Dude asked.
“No, I know what you mean.”  Flower Night replied sheepishly.
“I think Flower was trying to be funny.”  The Fattinator said.
“Me hope Flower trying to be funny.”  Wong Tong Suey said.
“I’ll bet $100 Hero Commander and Kolissa are ‘kissing’ right now.”  The Tattered Avenger remarked.
“You ain’t got no hun’red dollars, fool.”  Rare Earth chastised.
“Well, if you took the bet, I would have.”  The Tattered Avenger said.
They all laughed.

“Hi guys.”  Hero Commander said as he walked into where the group was waiting inside Studio 54.
“Hero Commander, glad to see you.”  Flower Night exclaimed.
“Hero Commander, we were just talking about you.”  The Tattered Avenger commented.
“Nothing good I hope.”  Hero Commander joked.
“So how are you and Kolissa getting along?”  Rare Earth asked.
“Speaking of Kolissa, she wants to rejoin the group, if that’s ok.”  Hero Commander stated.
“Kolissa, never!”  Guns McCoy yelled.
“Can I kill her a couple times?”  Necrophillia asked.
“Kolissa, shot ‘nother Hero with poison, too kinky.”  Not Another Hero said.
“Why don’t you drop this caveman voice already, you’re not fooling anybody.”  Richard Bourbon asked.
“What?  And give up show-biz.”  Not Another Hero said in his best ‘The Hamptons’ voice he has.
“That’s pretty good.”  Necrophillia said.
“Gratzie!”  Not Another Hero replied.
“Listen, if she says that she’s sorry and promises to not do it again, can Kolissa rejoin the league?”  Hero Commander pleaded.
“Maybe we should take a vote.”  Super Fire Dragon suggested.
“No need for that, deary.”  Kolissa said as she joined the group.
“Attack!”  Dr. Wos shouted as he pulled his sword.
“Stop!”  Hero Commander demanded as he blocked Kolissa.
“”Nut bunnies.”  Dr. Wos said as he swung his sword to the ground and put it away.
“Ok, I’m sorry I shot you guys with poisoned darts, ok!  Let’s not make a big deal out of this.”  Kolissa said.
“But we are your friends, and you killed us, temporarily, but still.”  Vince Dastardly said.
“Listen, deary, I still have a fully loaded wrist poison-dart-gun.”  Kolissa said.
“Are you threatening us?”  SFD asked.
“Yes, whoever doesn’t accept me back into the league, can eat dart.”  Kolissa said.
“Welcome, friend.”  Necrophillia said.
“Fine.  Kolissa is back.”  SFD stated.
“Yay!”  They all cheered.
“Kolissa, now that you are back on the team, let me say.”  Some Nut with a Gun said right before he started shooting Kolissa.
“It was a trap, well played, sir.”  Kolissa said as she fell to the ground.
“You fool nut, we welcomed her back.  Stupid head.”  Rare Earth said.
“Look, we all wanted to do that.  It was my turn.”  Some Nut with a Gun explained.
“Are you guys happy now?  Are we square?  Can we get on with it already?”  Hero Commander asked angrily.
Kolissa teleported to the hospital.
“Alright, the nut has gotten even with Kolissa.  Player versus player is part of life.  Let’s move on, ok.”  SFD said.
“Well, ok, it’s just that she was making it sound like our fault if we don’t forgive her.  It didn’t seem right.”  Some Nut with a Gun said.
“The Nut has a point, Kolissa shot us in cold-blood.”  Marshal Darkness said.
“Yes, have her tell us why.”  Developer 13 said.
“Ok, when she returns from the hospital, I will ask her to tell us why she shot us.”  SFD said.
“Ok, you nut, we’re even, but don’t do that again, deary, or you might not like what happens to you.”  Kolissa said.
“Kolissa, we will welcome you back, only if you explain why you shot us all.”  Red Control stated.
“Well, Red.  Deary, it is like this.  I wanted to be alone with The Hero Commander, and you were interrupting.”  Kolissa explained.
“That’s why you sent most of your team to the hospital.  You were feeling hot and bothered.”  The Paragon Comptroller accused.
“Well, a girl has to do what a girl has to do.”  Kolissa said.
“Ok, next time, just excuse yourself.”  The Paragon Avenger ordered.
“Ok, ok, can we get on with it?”  Kolissa asked.
“Yes, here’s the deal.  The Syndicate is shoring up the Resistance in order to take control of Praetoria.”  The Fattinator informed.
“And so we need to discredit the Syndicate in the eyes of the Resistance.”  Kolissa added.
“That’s right.”  Totally Awesome Dude confirmed.
“Super Fire Dragon, do you have a plan?”  Kolissa asked.
“Well, define plan.”  SFD replied.
“That’s what I thought.  Ok, all we got to do is show the Resistance proof that the Syndicate is not their friends.”  Kolissa suggested.
“Of course, deary, but how do we do that?”  Necrophillia said imitating Kolissa.
“Cute, do your zombies want company?”  Kolissa asked disingenuously.
“Excuse me for living.”  Necrophillia replied.
“Whatever.  We need to invent, steal or create said evidence.”  Kolissa offered.
“Brilliant!”  SFD said.
“I say we disguise ourselves as the Syndicate and run a loyalist mission.  We then deliver a video of the mission to that Calvin guy.”  Kolissa stated.
“Of course, why didn’t I think of that?”  SFD asked.
“Because you’re an idiot and a lousy dresser.”  Kolissa said.
“Thanks for clearing that up.”  SFD replied.
They all laughed.

“Sorry, Super Spine Wolf, the Syndicate disguise isn’t going to work on you.”  Kolissa informed.
“That’s ok; I’ll just, guard the door or something.”  Super Spine Wolf accepted.
“Tattered Avenger, the Syndicate usually bathe.”  Kolissa asserted.
“Hey, I bathe.”  The Tattered Avenger insisted.
“With clean water and soap?”  Kolissa asked.
“Well, no.  Not exactly.”  The Tattered Avenger said.
“What do you bathe with?”  Super Fire Dragon asked curiously.
“I don’t have a lot of time to waste on such non-sense, so I bathe by running through the sewers while ‘arresting’ bad guys.”  Tattered Avenger said.
“What about me?”  The Fattinator asked.
“We’re sure that you use soap.”  SFD replied.
“No, deary, he was talking about his Syndicate disguise.”  Kolissa said wishing she could strangle that dragon.
“The Syndicate just aren’t that big.”  The Paragon Avenger said.
“Me not too big, give me disguise.”  Not Another Hero stated.
“You crazy big, huge, no disguise, you not Syndicate.”  Wong Tong Suey said.
“Aw shucks, I never get to be the Syndicate.”  Not Another Hero remorsed.
They all laughed.
“What about me, am I chopped liver?”  Umbral Schrumbral asked.
“Don’t be silly, you’ll make an excellent Syndicate.”  Flower Night replied.
“Umbral, take off the yarmulke.”  Kolissa said agitatedly.
“Ah shalom!”  Umbral Schrumbral exclaimed.
“By the way, Dragon, you know that the costume isn’t going to work for you either.”  Kolissa said sounding grateful.
“What?  No!  I demand to be a member of the Syndicate.”  SFD demanded.
“I’ll let you direct the video.”  Kolissa bribed.
“Kolissa, have you lost your mind?”  Necrophillia whispered to Kolissa.
“Dragon, remember that we are trying to fool the Resistance into thinking that the Syndicate is actually doing this mission.”  Kolissa asked trying to reassure herself.
“I cannot work with all this interference.  One more critique and Alan Smithee will be the director!”  SFD stormed.
“I tried to tell you.”  Necrophillia stated.
“Ok Dragon, but don’t screw it up.”  Kolissa said.
“Anybody know Alan Smithee cell?”  SFD asked.
They all laughed.
“I’ll work the camera; I can get over the head shots easily.”  The Fattinator said.
“I can work the sound equipment.”  The Tattered Avenger offered.
“No.  Your BO nearly sounds bad.”  Marshal Darkness said.
“Honey, I know he smells bad; and we can actually see a vapor trail behind him of body funk, but saying it sounds bad is going a bit far.”  Rare Earth interjected.
“Oh, yeah, everybody be quiet for a minute.”  Marshal Darkness instructed.
As they stood in silence, The Tattered Avenger’s body odor made moaning sounds.
“Very funny.”  The Tattered Avenger said.
They all laughed, except the Tattered Avenger.
“TA, you can be camera 2, but stay down wind.”  SFD ordered.
“That leaves the operation of the expensive and complicated sound recording equipment in the hands of a man who doesn’t use verbs.”  Richard Bourbon XXIV stated.
“Me equipment in-charge.”  Not Another Hero spoke.
“Super Spine Wolf, you will do the voice-over narration.”  Kolissa assigned.
“Great, idea.  Let me go to ICON so I’ll be ready for my close-up.”  Super Spine Wolf said as he got up and started walking for the door.
“You do know what voice-over means, right?”  Vince Dastardly asked.
“Sure.”  Super Spine Wolf said as he walked out the door.
“I’m surrounded by them.”  Kolissa sighed.
“Hey, Kolissa, I was thinking, you know this black and red is so over done.  I was thinking a pale blue with a lime green.”  Developer 13 said.
“Red and Black are the SYNDICATE’S COLORS, YOU MORON!”  Necrophillia shouted.
“Well excuse me for having an eye for color.”  Developer 13 snapped back.
“People, people, settle.  Now, we will have our first rehearsal in one hour.”  SFD said.
“Dragon, we don’t need to rehearse.  All we got to do is wipe the floor with those Resistance creeps and make a video while doing it.”  The Paragon Comptroller stated.
“That’s what they said right before making Ghostbusters II.”  SFD replied.
“I’ve created a monster.”  Kolissa cried.
They all laughed.

“Action!”  Super Fire Dragon directed.
“Taste the Power of Arachnos!”  Kolissa cried as she charged the target dummies.
“Cut!”  Necrophillia shouted.
“Hey, I do the yelling, not you.”  SFD yelled.
“She blew her line.”  Necrophillia explained.
“What do you mean, deary?”  Kolissa asked.
“You said Arachnos.”  Necrophillia reminded.
“Drat!  I’ve been saying that so often for so long it’s almost second nature to me.”  Kolissa said.
“Ok, take it from the top, and action.”  SFD directed.
“We are the Syndicate!”  Kolissa exclaimed as she charged the target dummies.
From off-camera, Necrophillia sent her zombies in to attack the target dummies.  The zombies were disguised as the Syndicate.
“And cut.  Print that.”  SFD directed.
“Yo, SFD, what’s my motivation for this next scene?”  Developer 13 asked.
“Picture yourself on a beach searching for the perfect sea shell when suddenly, wham!  Got it?”  SFD said excitedly.
“What?”  Developer 13 said in confusion.
“Action!”  SFD directed.
“You resistance … creeps, umm, line.”  Red Control stammered.
“Cut!”  SFD directed.
“The line is, ‘You resistance creeps will submit or be trampled’, ok?”  Flower Night said.
“I don’t know, that’s not something I would say.”  Red Control said.
“Of course, you’re supposed to be a Syndicate.”  Necrophillia shouted.
“Dragon, about my upcoming scene, I still don’t understand.”  Developer 13 admitted.
“It’s simple.  Imagine one hand clapping under water without an ear to sneeze.  Where is the chicken?”  SFD explained.
“Dragon, what are you doing?”  Kolissa asked point-blank.
“I’m directing.  I’m trying to help the actors see beyond themselves.”  SFD answered.
“Well, cut it out.”  Kolissa ordered.
“Fine.  Action!”  SFD directed.
“Ok you Resistance creeps, you had better submit or get trampled.”  Red Control delivered.
“Camera 2, camera 2.”  SFD shouted.
“Yes, SFD.”  The Tattered Avenger replied.
“You’re not down wind enough.”  SFD stated.
“Sorry.”  The Tattered Avenger said moving to a different spot.
“The Resistance and the Syndicate shall rule Praetoria forever, but mostly the Syndicate.”  Developer 13 did his lines.
“Cut!”  SFD said.
“What was wrong with that?”  Developer 13 asked.
“We had a minor sound problem, get ready to go again.”  SFD directed.
“Dragon, you told Marshall to deliver his lines like Donald Duck!”  Rare Earth questioned.
“I thought his character needed something extra.”  SFD explained.
“Wait, no, nobody is doing voices, except me, lol.”  Necrophillia insisted.
“But it is a integral part of the scene, it establishes mood and sets the pace and refines the tone.”  SFD rambled.
“No!”  Necrophillia said emphatically.
“Sound box not busted, me ready now.”  Not Another Hero said.
“ok, places, Necrophillia, behind the camera, and action.”  SFD directed.
“The Resistance and the Syndicate shall rule Praetoria forever, but mostly the Resistance.”  Developer 13 did his lines.
“Cut!”  SFD said.
“What was wrong with that one?”  Developer 13 asked.
“You blew the line.”  Flower Night interjected.
“What did I say?”  Developer 13 asked.
“You said mostly the Resistance.”  Flower Night informed.
“Oh, ha ha, that’s funny.”  Developer 13 started to laugh.
“Queit on the set, places people, places, and action.”  SFD directed.
“The Resistance.”  Developer 13 burst into laughter.
“Cut!”  SFD directed.
“Sorry, sorry.”  Developer 13 said regaining composure.
“Ok, reset, places everyone and … “  SFD directed
Developer 13 interrupted with laughter.
“Come on Dev, snap out of it.”  SFD ordered.
“Ok, you’re right, ok, got it.”  Developer 13 said clearing his throat and straightening his Syndicate disguise.
“Here we go, places, places, and action.”  SFD directed.
“The Syndicate and the Resistance will rule … “  Developer 13 delivered his line.
Umbral Schrumbral interrupted by bursting into laughter.
“That’s funny, The Resistance shall rule Praetoria.  And … and … we are trying to … make them think that the Syndicate … ahhh.”  Umbral Schrumbral laughed.
“Cut.  Yes, it’s funny, but it’s just a slip of the tongue, ok, let’s get back on-track people, ok?  Places, here we go again, places everyone, and action.”  SFD directed.
“The Syndicate and the Resistance will rule Praetoria forever, but mostly the Syndicate.”  Developer 13 delivered his line.
“And cut that’s a print.”  SFD directed.
“Huh, huh, was I great?”  Developer 13 asked.
“What do you want, an Oscar?  Ok, that’s lunch, be back here in 13-D-7 minutes.”  SFD ordered.
“He means before 1:30.”  Necrophillia called-out.
“I think it is going rather well, don’t you.”  Guns McCoy said to The Fattinator as they walked towards the door.
“Yes, this is the best movie I ever made.”  The Fattinator answered.

“Dragon, I am not doing a nude scene!”  Flower Night insisted.
“Without that scene, the whole 2nd act falls apart.”  Super Fire Dragon explained.
“I don’t care.”  Flower Night replied.
“Be reasonable.”  SFD countered.
“I won’t do it.”  Flower Night said shaking her head.
“What’s going on here?”  Kolissa asked walking over to the two of them.
“Flower Night is refusing to do her scene.”  SFD said.
“I’m not doing a nude scene!”  Flower Night shouted.
“Dragon, there are no nude scenes in this video.”  Kolissa advised.
“There isn’t?”  SFD asked.
“I’m ready for my scene.”  Rare Earth said walking up wearing a bath robe and slippers.
“Sorry, Melissa, there are no nude scenes.”  SFD said.
“You got somebody younger and prettier didn’t you?”  Rare Earth asked.
“No, it’s just.”  SFD started.
“So you’re prejudice.  My breasts are just as perky as the next actress.”  Rare Earth interrupted.
“Listen, deary, this is the Syndicate attacking the Resistance.  There are no nude scenes.”  Kolissa explained.
“Just wait until my agent hears about this.”  Rare Earth said as she left for her dressing room.
“Dragon, did you tell all of the women to do nude scenes?”  Kolissa asked.
“No, of course not, don’t be silly.”  SFD answered dismissively.
“Where do you want me?”  Some Nut with a Gun said as he walked over to the dragon and he dropped his bath robe.
“Sorry, Nut, there are no nude scenes.”  SFD said.
“Let’s not be so hasty.”  Kolissa interjected while staring at the naked body of Some Nut with a Gun.
“Oh my, Nut, put your clothes back on.  There are no nude scenes.”  Flower Night said as her face turned a bright red.
“Well, ok, I really didn’t understand the nude scene anyway.”  Some Nut with a Gun said as he put his robe back on and left.
“He may be a nut, but boy does he have a gun.”  Kolissa commented.
“Kolissa, get your mind out of the gutter.”  Flower Night demanded.
“Nope, my zombies refuse to do a nude scene.”  Necrophillia said as she walked over to the dragon.
“The Zombies?”  Flower Night questioned.
“It was a very involved scene.”  SFD answered.
“I’ll bet.”  Flower Night replied.
“There are no nude scenes, especially for zombies, deary.”  Kolissa said.
“Of course not, I just told you that they refused.”  Necrophillia said.
“Ok, peoples, peoples, listen up.  Kolissa has canceled all the nude scenes.  It seems that we’re trying to get a PG-13 rating, broader audience.”  SFD explained to everybody in the warehouse.
Most of them moaned in disappointment.
“Hero Commander, come here for a second.”  SFD said.
“Yes, what is it?”  Hero Commander said as he walked over.
“Hey, shorty.”  Kolissa greeted.
“Oh hi, deary.”  Hero Commander replied.
“Knock it off you two, do I have to get a hose?”  SFD asked.
“Whatever, dragon.”  Kolissa said as she walked away.
“Look, Hero Commander, in this next scene, I need you to play it drunk.”  SFD directed.
“Well, whatever you say, Dragon.”  Hero Commander replied.
“Sound!”  SFD shouted.
“Umm, sound box ready.”  Not Another Hero said fumbling to get ready.
“Lights!”  SFD shouted.
“The lights are on.”  Red Control shouted back.
“Camera 1!”  SFD shouted.
“Camera 1 rolling.”  The Fattinator shouted.
“Camera 2!”  SFD shouted.
“Camera 2 rolling.”  The Tattered Avenger shouted.
“Places, places, and action.”  SFD shouted.
“The Resistance shall taste defeat, served up by the Syndicate!”  Totally Awesome Dude said.
“Yup, you-you resistor guys, hick, are going to-to be scraped off the boots of us Si-di-ci-cut.”  Hero Commander said pretending to be drunk.
“Cut and print.”  SFD shouted.
“Hero Commander, what was that?”  Totally Awesome Dude asked.
“I played it like I was drunk.”  Hero Commander replied.
“Yes, but why?”  Totally Awesome Dude asked.
“The Director told me to.”  Hero Commander said as he walked away.
“Dragon, that was horrible, let’s do the scene again, straight.”  Totally Awesome Dude demanded.
“Are you questioning my artistic abilities?”  SFD challenged.
“Well, no, but.”  Totally Awesome Dude responded.
“Dragon, what is going on now?”  Kolissa asked as she returned.
“TAD is questioning my direction.”  SFD said in a haughty manner.
“TAD is a smart man.  What did he do this time?”  Kolissa asked Totally Awesome Dude.
“The Dragon had The Hero Commander deliver his lines sounding drunk.”  TAD replied.
“Dragon!”  Kolissa shouted.
“Fine, we’ll do it again.”  SFD said.
“Hero Commander, come here.”  Kolissa shouted.
“Yes, my love.”  Hero Commander replied as he walked over to Kolissa and Super Fire Dragon.
“HC, baby, you were brilliant, but we have decided to take the scene in a different direction.”  SFD conferred.
“He means, we are going to do it right.”  Kolissa interjected.
“So now you don’t want me to sound drunk?”  Hero Commander asked.
“Well, maybe just high on weed … “  SFD said.
“No, Dragon!”  Kolissa insisted.
“Ok, ok, play it straight.”  SFD directed.
“Well, ok, that makes more sense.”  Hero Commander said.
“Everybody wants to direct.  Places people, Kolissa wants us to go again, places, camera 1, and action.”  SFD directed.
“The Resistance shall taste defeat, served up by the Syndicate!”  Totally Awesome Dude said.
“Yes, the Resistance is going to be scraped off the boots of the Syndicate.”  Hero Commander said.
“Cut and print, Kolissa, are you happy now?”  SFD shouted.
“Dragon, remember, we need to fool the Resistance into thinking that The Syndicate will double-cross them.  They aren’t going to believe it with drunken Syndicate and nude scenes and the like.”  Kolissa explained.
“Strike the jugglers and unicycle riders.”  SFD shouted.
They all laughed.

“Over here, Marshal.  Sit by me.”  Rare Earth called out.
Marshal found his seat in the “borrowed” movie theater next to Melissa.
“Kolissa, I would be honored if you would sit next to me.”  Hero Commander said trying to sound gallant.
“Whatever you say, Shorty.”  Kolissa replied.
“Peoples, find a seat quickly, we are about to start the screening.”  Super Fire Dragon announced as he peeked from behind the curtains of the stage.
“Dr. Wos, you may sit by me, if you promise to keep your hands to yourself.”  Necrophillia said imitating Ms. Liberty.
“Oh, Ms. Liberty, I promise, and thank you for this recognition.”  Dr. Wos responded.
They all laughed.
“Ouch!”  Dr. Wos said as Developer 13 slapped him and the back of the head.
“Come on will ya?”  Developer 13 mocked.
“Ms. Liberty isn’t here, is she?”  Dr. Wos asked.
“Do you see Ms. Liberty?”  The Paragon Comptroller asked.
“That was Necrophillia again, wasn’t it?”  Dr. Wos asked.
“Do you think?”  The Tattered Avenger asked.
“I’ll kill her, I’ll kill her.”  Dr. Wos shouted as he lunged for Necrophillia.
“You sit down.”  The Fattinator said grabbing Dr. Wos by the back of the collar and flinging him to the closest seat.
“Just because you get nervous every time you hear Ms. Liberty’s voice, is no reason to send Necrophillia to the hospital.”  The Paragon Avenger said.
“I didn’t want to send her to the hospital; I wanted to send her to the morgue.”  Dr. Wos fumed.
“What?  We would never get her out of there.”  Guns McCoy said.
They all laughed, except Necrophillia and Dr. Wos.
“Hey, what I do with my free time is none of your business.”  Necrophillia said defensively.
“Thank goodness.”  Flower Night interjected.
“Flower Night, please sit beside me.”  Some Nut with a Gun said.
“Ok, keep your shirt on.”  Flower Night said.
“Tattered Avenger, would you come here a minute?”  SFD said peering through the stage curtains.
“Yes, what is it?”  The Tattered Avenger asked.
“Look, I don’t know a nice way to say this, so, would you mind running the projector, from the projection booth, with the door closed.”  SFD asked.
“Well, ok, but why?”  The Tattered Avenger asked.
“Well, I have heard that you are very skilled at, ah nuts, you stink ok.  Nobody wants to sit by you.”  SFD said bluntly.
“So, you’re saying that I’m uniquely qualified to operate the projection equipment.”  The Tattered Avenger said.
“Not exactly.”  SFD said.
“That’s what I heard.”  The Tattered Avenger said as he walked off the stage towards the projectionist’s booth.
“Ok, peoples, peoples, settle.  You are about to see the video we made of our recent mission.  Some Nut with a Gun, could you get the lights.”  SFD said.
“No!  Dragon, are you crazy.”  Necrophillia shouted.
“Hey, what is this?”  Some Nut with a Gun protested as Flower Night grabbed his gun before he could shoot out the lights with it.
“I will get the lights, Dragon.”  Totally Awesome Dude said as he walked over to the breaker box.
“Ok, Not Another Hero, open the curtains.”  SFD called out.
Not Another Hero gave a mighty yank to the curtain ropes and the curtains went flying open exposing the projection screen.  Super Fire Dragon jumped off the stage in the flurry of the curtains and landed in the orchestra pit.
“Not so hard, next time.”  SFD managed to scold.
“Sorry, Boss.”  Not Another Hero said.
“Ok, TA, hit play!”  SFD ordered.
A fanfare of music filled the hall as the picture started.
“Super Fire Dragon presents:”  was the first title screen.
“A Super Fire Dragon Production of.”  Read the second title.
“Super Fire Dragon Saves the Day.” The third title card read.
“Boo!”  Several audience members responded.
“Starring Super Fire Dragon.”  The titles continued.
“with the Super Fire Dragon players.”  The fifth title said.
“Hey!”  Red Control shouted in disapproval.
After several title cards later crediting SFD with every aspect of the production of the movie,  Kolissa said, “You know, deary, we are going to have to cut all of this before giving it to Calvin Scott.”
“Directed by Super Fire Dragon.”  The last title card said.
The first scene shows the Syndicate attacking and defeating a group of Resistance.  Then there were scene of the Syndicate bregging about crushing the Resistance and taking over Imperial City.  The last scene was Hero Commander wearing a Bo Peep costume while “I’m a Little Teapot” played in the background.
“Kolissa, you promised!”  The Hero Commander shouted silencing the giggles that had filled the room.
“Shorty, I did destroy MY copies.  Apparently the Dragon has his own.”  Kolissa countered.
“I trusted you.”  Hero Commander shouted as he stormed out of the theatre.
“Dragon, when I get back that scene had better be gone.”  Kolissa threatened as she ran after Hero Commander.
“Where did Bo Peep go?  To look for sheep.”  Vince Dastardly asked.
“Shut up, Vince.”  Super Spine Wolf said sternly.
“Dragon, what were you thinking having that Bo Peep scene in there?”  Necrophillia questioned.
“The movie needed an ending.”  SFD replied.
“You fool lizard, you just don’t get it, fool lizard.”  Rare Earth said as she and Marshal walked out.
“Yeah, Dragon, that was mean and cruel and hurtful.”  Flower Night said.
“Everybody’s a critic.”  SFD said to his self out loud.

“Super Fire Dragon, come in, come in.”  Calvin Scott said motioning the dragon to enter his office and take a seat.
“Hello, Mr. Scott.”  SFD said.
“Call me Calvin.”  Calvin Scott replied.
“Calvin, why did you call me in here?”  SFD asked.
“Dragon, may I call you Dragon?”  Calvin Scott asked.
“Sure.”  SFD said.
“Dragon, we received some disturbing news concerning the Syndicate.”  Calvin Scott said.
“Really?”  SFD asked trying to keep the secret.
“Dragon, I was right.  The Syndicate are no friend to the Resistance.”  Calvin Scott explained slamming his fist into his hand.
“Oh I see.”  SFD said not knowing what to say.
“I need to show these Syndicate goons that the Resistance is no pushover, scrapped off the boots of the Syndicate, indeed!”  Calvin Scott said getting excited.
“Well, good luck with that, see you later, goodbye.”  SFD rattled-off trying to make a hasty exit.
“Yes, Dragon, here is your next mission.  Now go crush the Syndicate.”  Calvin Scott said.
Super Fire Dragon left Calvin’s office as the mission details arrived into his mobile mission monitor computer, “NAV” for short.
The mission was to hit the Syndicate hard along the docks.  SFD wondered how the league would take this new orders.
“We have a new mission”  SFD said as he entered Studio 54 where the league had gathered again.
“Fool dragon, when can we go home?”  Rare Earth inquired.
“Dragon, you weren’t supposed to get another mission.”  Necrophillia said.

Meanwhile

“Nobody thinks any less of you, Shorty.”  Kolissa said to Hero Commander.
“I see that costume, and I feel so used.”  Hero Commander said.
“Look, it was all in good fun, but I understand and respect your wishes.”  Kolissa replied.
“You heard them laugh, laughing at me.”  Hero Commander said getting angry.
“Don’t let it get to you so, Shorty.”  Kolissa said.
“I guess you’re right, deary, but ALL the copies had better be destroyed this time.”  Hero Commander said.
“Fine.”  Kolissa said.  “I’ll call Super Fire Dragon and tell him to destroy his copies.”
“Thank you.”  Hero Commander said.
“Yes, what is it?  Who is this?  Do you have any cheese?”  SFD answered via the wrist communicator.
“Dragon, did you destroy ALL the copies of those picture we were talking about?”  Kolissa asked.
“Even that special stash of pictures you called ‘The Divorce Preventer’?”  SFD asked.
“Dragon, I don’t know what you are talking about, just destroy ALL your copies, please.”  Kolissa said into the two-way communicator wrist watch.
“Well, ok.”  SFD said.
“See, nothing to worry about, Shorty.”  Kolissa reassured Hero Commander.
“Tell Super Fire Dragon, ‘Thank You’ for me.  I’m going to bed now.”  Hero Commander said.
“Super Fire Dragon, Hero Commander told me to …”  Kolissa said.
“Are you going to join me?”  Hero Commander interrupted to ask.
“You bet.”  Kolissa said throwing her two-way communicator wrist watch onto the table and following Hero Commander.
“Hello, hello.  What did Hero Commander tell you to tell me?  And which pictures did you want me to keep and which did you want destroyed?  Hello, hello.”  SFD asked via the communicator.

“Well that was strange.”  Super Fire Dragon said.
“What was strange?”  Developer 13 asked.
“Kolissa called and said to destroy all the copies of those pictures I have of Hero Commander.”  SFD replied.
“Yeah, so?”  Developer 13 asked.
“Well, then she said that Hero Commander told her to tell me something, and then the line went dead.”  SFD explained.
“Maybe we should get over there.”  Developer 13 suggested.
“Ok, peoples, settle, settle.  Listen up, who wants to battle the Syndicate for the Resistance?”  SFD asked.
Several seconds of silence later, the dragon spoke.
“That’s want I thought.  We are all going to Founders’ Falls to Kolissa’s apartment and make sure everything is ok there.”  SFD ordered.
“What about Calvin Scott and the mission?”  Flower Night asked.
“I’ll let Calvin know that we are dropping the mission, after we arrive back on Primal Earth.”  SFD explained.
They each went through the portal leading to Pocket D on Primal Earth.
“We don’t all need to go to Kolissa’s apartment, Dragon take Developer 13, Dr. X-rays and Flower Night.  The rest of us will disband the league and go our separate ways.”  Paragon Avenger planned.
“That makes sense to me.”  Some Nut with a Gun said firing into the air.
“Will you stop doing that?  You fool nut!”  Rare Earth said.
“He’s a nut, always has been.”  Paragon Comptroller said.
With that each league member quit the team and walked away, leaving the Dragon, Developer 13, Dr. X-Rays and Flower Night standing there.  They formed a team and headed for Founders’ Falls.
“Hello, Dragon, come in Dragon.”  Kolissa said over the communicator.
“Necrophillia, stop playing around, will ya?”  SFD responded.
“This isn’t Necrophillia you idiot.”  Kolissa shouted over the communicator.
“Ok, ok, what’s going on there?”  SFD asked.
“I was calling to let you know that everything is ok here, and to make sure you know to destroy all the pictures of Hero Commander.”  Kolissa said.
“Ok, all the pictures will be destroyed.  What happened earlier?”  SFD asked.
“Oh, nothing, I just ummm, we had to, lat’s just say that I had to go to the bathroom really really bad.”  Kolissa said.
“Oh, ok, well I hope everything comes out alright, laterz.”  SFD ended the communication.
“So, was that Kolissa?”  Flower Night asked.
“What did she say?”  Dr. X-Rays asked.
“False alarm, Kolissa is ok.”  SFD said.
With that they broke up the team and went their separate ways.

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

Super Fire Dragon called Calvin Scott and lied about a high priority mission on Primal Earth.  Being that Primal Earth is their home world, the league insisted on taking care of that first.  Calvin Scott said that he completely understood, but right after he hung up the phone, he threw it across the room.
