What's Wrong With Cocoa?

Sunday, July 24, 2016
Also known as, "In which there is a lampshade hanging".

Oh, what, were you expecting a fight scene in the last post complete with copious descriptions of action and magic and powers and the like? Yeah, about that.

Well, East and West were so quick in defeating the Evil Enemy that there was no time to describe or explain anything. In all honesty, what happened couldn’t even be classified as a proper fight scene considering how one-sided it was.

The Superheroes (mostly West, really) would like to inform you not to worry because there’ll be more fights to come and those would be more worthy of descriptions.

In the meanwhile, let’s listen in on East and West as the two talk about the Evil Enemy for the last time before this particular saga draws to a close.

“Hah, that takes care of that. I knew that guy was totally no match for us. We’re ‘super special awesome’ Superheroes, East,” West crows in triumph.

East smiles and nods. “As you say, Cocoa. But I do have to wonder why he did not bother to attack us while we were busy talking and were more than a little bit distracted. He could have taken advantage of such an opportunity and perhaps been able to actually injure us, even just a little,” East points out.

West frowns. “East, don’t put a ‘lampshade hanging’ on the plot hole that isn’t a plot hole. For those wondering, that guy was totally incompetent, okay? He’s just a mook. Well, he might be able to pass off as an elite mook, maybe, but he’s totally still just a mook. So he totally didn’t even think about doing whatever East just said.”

“Ah, I thought you did not want me to break what you call the fourth wall? Is that not what you are now doing, Cocoa?” East asks with an amused smile.

“Yeah, I don’t. So, let’s stop doing it, okay? That conversation totally never happened. Uh-uh, didn’t happen, so erase it from your mind, m’kay? And don’t call me 'Cocoa,' East, uff.”
