Synopsis:  

Aging telepath Evil Overlord Xander has traded his youthful dream of joining the US military and using his superpowers to benefit humanity for over-the-hill cynicism, self-imposed exile on his private zoo-for-crazy-people Eynhallow Island, and a serious case of May-December midlife crisis.  And technically it's only kidnapping if she tries to leave.  or the fun version

Ohhh I had been wondering ever since they had their fight how exactly he intended to have her thinking about staying... It's pretty well thought actually. Even though he messed up a few times, maybe it'll work?... (Unless she just randomly leaves the island without warning when her... colleagues?... show up...

ah yes that's exactly what she would try to do, but Xander's thought of that possibility and headed it off at the pass.  Even Kore's figuring that it won't be easy.  He's quite a few steps ahead.  We shall see.

I love how excited he is about this, I feel like he is enjoying it because no one has probably challenged him like this in a long time

I wouldn't say that, Grant is challenging.  One might say Grant can be intensely intellectually challenged at times.  I think he's excited because...well...it's kinda obvious Kore likes him, psycho and all.  Unfortunately, Xander it's not gonna be that easy hon.

Good to see he likes a challenge. He's that bored I'm guessing.

I think Xander sort of creates his own interesting disasters wherever he goes.  I don't think he's bored.  Just sort of busy cleaning up broken glass all the time?

Besides knowing that Kore's thinking about him, I think Xander's also wondering what it would be like to just walk away from it all. He leaves, finds a little apartment or cottage somewhere, and now the island's business and its mad mob of a population are her problems.

Oh he is, certainly he is.  He's coming to the realization that he's not going to be around forever, and he's never really thought of how to disentangle himself from everything before.

Thats what i'm saying from the start.He is just an ordinary man who is cursed with telepathy.Which makes him lonely cuz he has to make some hard decisions that nobody else would understand and call him evil.

For the first time he is happy that kore is actually thinking about staying in Eynhallow.

Throwing spitwads made me choke on my morning latte.So childish.Thumbs up for that.

I dunno if it's cursed exactly...he doesn't know any differently, and I'd almost think it's that way with a lot of talents that people have.  I mean, some people can ride a unicycle, and they think they're just as normal as everyone else. they never consider the plight of the non-unicyclists, eh? sitting there with an ordinary wobbling bicycle, bent over the handlebars like a nerd, when the unicyclist, upright, juggling as he goes, just makes everything look so very ...easy...

Cycling is a skill anybody can have,if they want to,if they practice.Its totally there choice.I don't think xendar had a choice.He was just born with it.And not using those abilities to the best of his knowledge would be foolishness.
The interesting part is that once you have it,you can't un-have it:D (Big Grin) both the skills and abilities.
