It seems like Xander spends most of his time doing paperwork and arguing with people at meetings.

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

yknow, I'm not sure which hairstyle I like on the overlord, the slickbacked one or this nice middle parting one, they both suit him so well!

Also if he's the Evil Overlord of Eynhallow and (chances are) he's the only Evil Overlord on the planet, could he say he's the Evil Overlord of the world and NOT be wrong? thinking sphere thinking sphere thinking sphere

I think he's strategically messing up his hair whenever Kore's around...accidents happen.  hmm is Xander the only evil overlord on the planet?  what about dick cheney?  everyone was hyped about him when he was vp.  dick cheney literally keeps his actual heart on his desk in a jar.  dick cheney is so metal that they had to hire batman to play him in a movie. xander: 'evil overlord of the world minus wyoming?'  this could explain a lot about wyoming...  :thinking:

:D she's Kore like 'Corey' short for her real name Cora, and she's around a lot.  People want to foil her escape plans.  She tends to attract the eye of Sauron.  Despite the lack of shirt now, she's got a big thing for turtlenecks.

No. Xander spends most of his time thinking of Kore THEN doing arguing with people THEN doing paperwork. And maybe sometimes he does somthing nice... Hey, I SAID 'SOMETIMES' :D

Probably most evil tyrants who actually pay *any* attention *at all* to running their countries spend most of their time doing paperwork and arguing with people at meetings...

haha true...in that respect the difference between evil tyrant and conscientious leader must depend greatly on whether you want to throw a wrench in the works or not.

I'm working on it...  Working on one this morning, always some of my favorite work to do. trying to keep xander's huge nose from getting bigger and bigger with every sketch. he's a human toucan. or maybe pinocchio.

Shes gotta get dressed for the show down if she wants to look as good as Xander usually does! I love how they just watch each other sometimes its a funny dynamic between them.

Well at least she'll have some good socks.  And then they can stand there smirking at each other from across the room and making everyone else uncomfortable... this is gonna be good. ;)

Somehow Di doesn't seem to think it's gonna be that way... But it totally is gonna be...
Just as long as their fellow telepath doesn't show up, should go fine...?

Oh Di has a plan.  Di's plan is inordinately trivial, but she's got a rock solid plan.

Nah, he spends most of his time trying to live through the lives of other people ...
All in all, what he does is a bit like watching Big Brother, isn't it? Only that the people he watches for entertainment live better, but get even more ridiculous tasks (and clothing).

nailed it... a very telepath-y thing to do... I'd say it's sad, but what else would he be doing?  it's not like he can stop.
