"BrassFox, I just wanted to let you know that we have the successor projects on-board."  Tommy B. informed.
"That is great news."  BrassFox replied.
"My contact contacted his contact, and that seems to be moving forward."  Tommy B. added.
"I'm getting goosebumps."  BrassFox replied.
"We even have decided on a strategy to buy part of the game instead of the whole thing, and license the IP."  Tommy B. expounded.
"This just keeps getting better."  BrassFox exclaimed.

BrassFox misunderstands the positive messages and posts to the Titan Forums that the deal is weeks away.
"BrassFox, what were you thinking?"  Tommy B. scolded.
"What?"  BrassFox asked as the two conversed over the telephone.
"I was just keeping you informed."  Tommy B. said.
"Thank you."  BrassFox said not understanding what the problem might be.
"I read your post on the Titan Formun."  Tommy B.
"Great!  How did you like it?"  BrassFox asked.
"I hated it.  You expletive, we are not weeks from anything."  Tommy B. said trying to convey his anger.
"What, you said ... "  BrassFox replied.
"Look, you read far more into what I said.  We haven't even met with the ParagonSoft executives yet."  Tommy B. informed.
"Whoa, do I feel stupid right now."  BrassFox said.
"We want you to help the community by passing on information from time to time, but ... "  Tommy B. explained.
"I know, don't give timelines or false hopes.  I am sorry for the confusion I might have caused.  I'll post a retraction right away."  BrassFox said with his tail between his legs.
"Thank you."  Tommy B. replied.

CodeWanderer released Icon 1.0 to much acclaim.
Instantly, the community asked for more features and changes.
CodeWanderer is considering a career change.

Great, I screwewd up.
I have Tommy B. in two places at once, and I just now realized it.

"Oh Hi Oh"  Tommy B. said to one of the South Korean executives who greeted him at the airport.
"That's Japanese!"  The executive replied.

Tommy B. paced in their luxury hotel suite.
"Tommy, please lite someplace; you're driving me crazy."  Doug pleaded.
Tommy stopped and looked up like his train of thought had just been derailed.
"Sorry, I was just thinking about our last meeting with ParagonSoft."  Tommy B. replied.
"I know, I feel like we are walking on egg-shells."  Mark commented.
"You don't get to talk."  Doug scolded.
"Doug, Mark just used the wrong words to the wrong person at the wrong time."  Tommy B. explained.
"You don't understand; we're sunk."  Doug exclaimed.
"What do you mean, 'I don't understand'?"  Tommy B. feining being insulted.
"Tommy, be reasonable."  Doug replied.
"I was just showing you how easy it is to use the wrong words."  Tommy B. stated.
"Thanks, Tommy."  Doug snapped.
"Hey, I got a great idea."  Mark interjected.
"What?"  Tommy B. aksed.
"Let's go out on the town, shake things up a bit."  Mark suggested.
They grabbed they coats and left the hotel suite.

"Well, I answered all those tricky questions ParagonSoft sent us."  Doug stated.
"Good, knew you could."  Mark rejoined.
"But where does this leave us?"  Tommy B. asked.
"What do you mean."  Mark asked.
"We are here to buy a game."  Tommy B. replied.
"Yeah, we know."  Doug affirmed.
"How does answering a bunch of fool questions get us anywhere?"  Tommy B. asked.
The room was silent.  They pondered the events of the last several weeks.  they wanted the game back so much, they could taste it.  They wanted it back not for the glory if any and not even for the profits which there should be much more than any.  They wanted it back to run paper missions in Steel, to hold costume contests under the globe on Talos, to have all-nighters grinding through a work-force.  They wanted the game back to be heroes again!

He studied the papers delivered that morning with great interest.  He knew that ParagonSoft couldn't just license it's award-winning game to just anybody.  He had hoped against hope that his boss's boss's boss would reconsider, and relaunch the game.  He shudders every time he remembers that aweful day.  "We are going in a new direction."  The high-ups said.  That is always bizSpeak for "Sorry, you lose---haha!"  And now an outside group wants to license the game and take-on it's running and maintenance.  Basically, they want his old job.  The work they turned in is adequete, but how could he turn his baby over to ... THEM!

"As you can see, those mare-a-cans answered every question, as westerns would." Executive 1 said
"I see, this means that the Korean culutre of the game would be lost." Executive 2 replied
"That would be most unfortunate."  Executive 3 stated
"You fail to see things clearly."  Top-Executive said
"Oh, master, we are so sorry."  executive 1 said
"Yes, you don't understand.  City of Heroes is set in the West." Top-Executive explained
"Maybe these westerners might have a better understanding of the West than we."  Executive 3 said
"Yes, but Mare-a-cans, they are so un ancient." Executive 2 remarked.
They all laughed.

"Most honorable, master.  I have shamed myself and all my ancestors"  Executive 1 admitted.
"Please, explain."  Top Executive ordered.
"I have been dialing the incorrect number."
"You fool!  You are now Executive 9, and Executive 2 is now number 1 executive.  Executive 3 stays where he is."
"Ah shucks."  Executive 3 muttered.
They all laughed.
