Two fun things:
1) I made 40 dollars this weekend from finally turning in 15 years worth of Couch Change. Really!
2) Someone mentioned one of my fanfics in TVtrope's "Crowning Moment of Awesome: Fanfic."
From the recently started fanfic Supernatural Taisen Anubis is bringing his fleet to Earth to conquer it, and makes his ultimatum to the President of the United States. Unfortunately for him, this fic is Super Robot Wars expanded beyond Humongous Mecha, and the sitting Commander-in-Chief is none other than David Xanatos:
Anubis: “I am Anubis,”
Xanatos “Sure you are.”
Anubis: “Are you the leader of this world?”
Xanatos: “For all intents and purposes, let us talk as though I were.”
Anubis: “Your leadership has come to an end. “Bow before your God, and I may grant you leniency.”
Xanatos (mentally removing plan b from consideration): “I’m a self-made billionaire who now leads the most powerful nation on the planet. Do you honestly think I’d accept handouts or being ranked second best?”
Anubis: “If you possessed weapons matching mine, you would have used them.”
Xanatos: “Despite our image, we know the meaning of restraint and patience.”
Anubis: “You will bring destruction upon yourselves.”
Xanatos: “In the last hundred years, we’ve been faced with 30 invasions like yours. What makes you think that yours will fare any differently from theirs?”
(Anubis' Hologram fades. Xanatos turns to Owen, who raises an eyebrow)
I feel so special now!
