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

I'm loving Di all the more. That kooky, lovely Satanist seems so terminally optimistic right now.Love  Hopefully, not literally terminally optimistic. Wink/Razz

she's just a steampunk steamroller, bubbling along.  :)

In Victorian times, Di would have been very controversial, scorned by the elite, and dubbed "the Wickedest Woman," etc. In other words, a smash hit. :) (Smile)

Ah, Kore ... even if you should succeed in leaving now, my bets are on you being back before next winter ^^ And you won't be able to forget that guy, at least as long as you keep that scar from healing. But probably by the moment you leave (if it happens), there will be other reasons to remember him as well.

...reasons like 'now I have telepathy that's weird'. It'd be awfully easy for her to just stay wouldn't it?  Work it out with Xander, work it out with him later, but stay.  Forget the past, forget responsibilities, it's be so easy, like stepping into a fairy-land.  Kore however, has got this thing called 'loyalty'.

Yeah, there's that as well ^^
And - that's exactly the reason why I think she might actually go at some point, but she'll still also return occasionally. Never to stay for good probably ... seems not her style ^^

By the way, saw this and was instantly reminded of Di: 333 by La-Esmeralda-Stock ^^

Isn't Kore a telepath too? I've been thinking about it for a long time now; can't she just heal the wound on her face? Or is she not that powerful or know how to?

oh she absolutely can, she fixed herself up from much worse.  She's just not going to let him get away with it.  She's not someone to just forgive and forget.  Like she said, it's not the first time she's been scarred and unable to 'let it go' even when the power was right there in front of her.  It's something that Xander has deep questions about, and believe it or not he's got a serious reason for doing it in the first place (even if I still think it was a bit extreme). 

Besides, after the rumors that must be flying around Eynhallow, it'll play great for the camera for the debate.  Upstart woman vs. man who actually slashed her face with a knife.  terrific.

Very nice, I can't wait to read about it! X3 I'd love to see how the godlike Ves snakes his way out of this conflict. XD

I built a really neat 3d model last month of this ring and that was a perfect excuse to put the 3d version in the comic ...but I didn't think of it until just right now...le sigh...it'll go on the fix it list.  yup Go Kore!  and Xander is the only character who's really id'd this strength.  He'll be turning up the pressure...but I kinda think it's because he believes in her.

and we don't know half of what's she's been through up to this point.  never fear, Xander's figuring on putting her through even more... I don't think he even knows what she's been through at this point
