And that’s exactly why you keep that important presentation for your job on a different flash-drive than your private pictures from the evening prior. >_> Same goes for flash-backdrives, of course, as DM found out to his detriment today. Dammit, and he was so sure he’d finally be through with being embarrassed in front of that group of people, now that he no longer wears anyone’s genitals on his head.
Fortunately for him, the heroes are too deep in shock to even laugh as this new little gaffe of his…embarrassing as it is, it doesn’t markedly improve the general outlook for the team. Evil is still hugely triumphant at the moment, slight embarrassment notwithstanding. I even had to take some liberties with the gaming-journalists-reacting template, since there wasn’t any pic that showed this sort of reaction – after all, there wasn’t any announcement of a remake of Superman 64, or anything else that might plunge a gaming journalist into the kind of hopeless despair our heroes currently linger in.
You’ve got to hand it to the Shadow Demon, though – he’s definitely been a very busy bee, and done everything he could to be of service to DM and his plan. His threatened destruction a while earlier seems to really have done wonders for his motivation (not that I encourage such methods of personnel management). DM recapitulates his greatest hits, and thus all of the various points at which he helped guiding the two groups of adventurers to their ultimate doom.
As for that last bit…well, now that you know that DM is deeply evil, you can’t really be surprised that he’d abuse the authority he’s been granted over the Shadow Demon, can you? It’s another huge part of evil personnel management – in this case, you could also call it a management perk.
There’s actually a bit of a plot hole here, but more of that the next time. It’s enough if DM is embarrassed today, I don’t necessarily need to join him. >_>
More on Thurs…uh, Monday.
