Hey, patrons!  Welcome back to the second half of what I’m calling ‘the nose-dive chapter.’

“It really is obvious that Igor has completely run out of ideas.”

Not only that, he’s totally run out of fucks to give.  That means we’re in store for the total burn out.  There will be a large burst of activity in terms of a few chapters that get posted in a short amount of time as Igor tries to rally some interest in the project, and then the dwindle to nothingness.

“Recap?”

Naw, nothing new was served up in the first half.  All we got was a bunch of irrelevant dialogue that I assume was supposed to be character building, and a discussion from the Buffy crew that we’ve basically seen a few times before.

“But Spike!”

Right, almost forgot, Spike is being called in as a maid.  I guess that’s the summary for the last chapter.  Spike in a maid outfit.

Hello, and welcome back to, “Legendary Adventurers, Futuristic Saviors,” by Stone-Man85! I’m your host, SC, joined by Sir Paulo Rori and Scarlet of Mesyth, and last time, we saw the villains being all villainously scheming and shit, then promptly went back to Idiot One and Idiot Two for some stupid anime trope times that ended with me being legit pissed because Stone-Man85 is slowly but surely murdering all the things that made my childhood wonderful.

What do you think, that about cover everything of interest?

Paulo: More or less.

Scarlet: You forgot about my book.

Oh, right, and Scarlet’s writing a book.

Now, with that out of the way, let’s hurry up and finish this shitstain chapter so that we can move on to the next one. If this is anything like the last three parts, it’ll end up being a very short entry because most of the crap will get cut out.

“Hi everyone!”

Urrrrnnnnnnng.

“Taco stayed up too late playing Breath of the Wild last night.  Again.”

Look, I can’t help it.  I say ‘five more minutes and I’ll stop’ and then the temporal anomaly in my living room acts up and it’s two hours later.

“And you’re certain that temporal flux is the most reasonable explanation as to why you keep getting to bed late?”

I can think of no other plausible explanation.

“‘Kay!  Recap!  Last week Salix Tech announced their new robot line in a plot arc that is in no way a complete ripoff of I, Robot!  And then we got to read Team Buffy react to this announcement by stating the obvious for about ten minutes.  That was pretty much it.”

Somehow it felt like there was even less.

~WARNING: BIG BOUNCY SQUISHY AWESOME BOOBY TITS! :D~

~Alright, that’s the last time I ever let Glasses write a Not Safe For Work alert.~

Hello, and welcome back to “Legendary Adventurers, Futuristic Saviors,” by Stone-Man85! I’m your host, SC, joined by Sir Paulo Rori and Scarlet of Mesyth, and last time, Alex continued to prove that he is a walking contradiction of himself by claiming to be both experienced with, and enjoying outdoor survival, all the while bitching and moaning about it to the point where San finally had to shove his shit back into his own face to shut him up. And Stone-Man85 would have you believe that Alex is a sympathetic character.

This week, unfortunately, is more of the same, but the upside is that we get to see Team Villain for a brief moment to help make the horse pill that is Alex and Sannabe’s “budding romance” somewhat less of a choking hazard to swallow.

Scarlet: Like a single sip of lukewarm tea?

Paulo: Or perhaps a sharp inhale to open the throat for a single moment.

Dude, it probably rates as low as a slow drip of room temperature tap water.

Hey, patrons, welcome back!  Gonna whip through it this week since my schedule is a bit tight, so let’s jump into this!

“What about the recap!?”

Sure, go for it.

“They talked about what they would do after they conquered the world.”

You done?

“Yup!”

Okay, let’s do this thing!

Hey folks!  Since last week’s chapter didn’t matter in the slightest, even by the author’s own admission, we’re not going to bother recapping it other than just saying it was Igor getting all grimdork and edgelardy because attention seeking.

“Whereas we seek attention by tearing into the low-hanging fruit!”

Damn straight!  Let’s get this attention train on the rails!

WARNING:  This chapter is not safe for children, work, or other living things.

So it’s come to this.  The chapter that actually caught my attention to the fic in the first place.  A chapter so forcibly grimdark and disengenous that I figured the entire work would be far more inflamitorily bad than the rest.

“Oh my.”

As it turns out, this chapter was just the author being an overdramatic and angsty teen who misinterprets utilizing serious adult topics with being edgy and creating worthwhile content.  You’ll do well to imagine Igor typing this with Crawling or some other angst-fest music playing on loop in the background.
