Oh, hey, look at the gigantic shiny dragon! He hasn't done a question in doubled-up FOREVER, you know. In fact, it's entirely possible that half the Nexus doesn't know who He is!

Eh, details.

"All right, Nexus! We're apparently being invaded, again, by scruffy berks with mandatory idiot-policies. If we want to do something about this repetitive state, we are going to have to do something about this!" It's a good thing He's got such a carrying voice, isn't it?

"As it happens, we may have a lead on a way to stop it! Those of you who pay a reasonable level of attention to British transvestites will know that a major problem lies in that we don't have a flag."




"Now, as the Sign doesn't seem to count, who can design a workable Nexus flag? This is apparently IMPORTANT, people!"

Edit: Thanks to the work of the magnificent and talented dlet,



And now thanks to the delightful rurounitriv, we have ANOTHER!




Which flag do you prefer, and do you think you can do better?

"..Did you even peruse the attendant media, Alec? Well, no matter."

Semi-shrug. Because shrugging is difficult, dash it!

"At any rate, as the latest invader's reasons for attacking are utterly nonsensical, nonsense is obviously the way to fight it! It's perfectly illogical, you see."

In other words: Pure Friggin' Magic, alright?

((You win, so hard. Seriously. I'm laughing so hard I'm crying.))

"Damn, but that guy looks familair." Curt blinks and shakes his head. Anyway...

"Hey, Z. Did I miss an invasion?" The scruffy, just-rolled-out-of-someone-else's-bed look would indicate he hasn't been keeping up on the news. "I wouldn't mind getting in on a little ass kicking."

((Bwehehe. Thankew, thankew!))

"Heyo, Curt! We're currently in the 'twenty-four-hour notice' before we start getting invaded again. It's another Iron Man, and they always taste nasty.. but at least you've still got time for gratuitous violence!"

And isn't that always a cause for yay?

"But what if we don't want the Nexus to be a country? Have you considered this? I sure don't want it to be. I like it the way it is."

*So very locked like a locking thing*

"As if there's going to be any major changes. Do you really think that I'd want to make this into a proper country? Ordinances? Lawsuits? Taxes!? No, thank you; that's hard enough when it's My worshippers that I'm dealing with!"

Le sigh.

"I'm not making a bid to conquer the Nexus Myself, here. All I'm saying is we add some window-dressing, just in case it might prove useful. This isn't a Grand Scheme, just 'Oh look a flag!'"

Invaded again! Why, it just seems like yesterday people were trying to control this place!

Maaaaan, I never get a break.

ANYWAY I'm... not so good at designing flags! I'm not sure if it'll help~ but it's worth a shot instead of fighting.

"Honestly, it's like locusts! Every so often, here they come again.." Eh, digression.

"Admittedly, it may not help. But it's something, at least, and hopefully we'll wind up with a cool flag out of the deal!"

How can this NOT be a winning situation, after all?

"Hmm, that could work. Got anything you could show? It doesn't have to be FANCY, after all.."

Slag happens so very MUCH in the Nexus, after all. Ask any LOLee!

"I think this'll do it!" Yay! "Thanks, Dlet; should have known to come to you. Still, let's see who else can make one up; who knows what might be done?"

Still, in the meantime, He's sticking this up next to the Sign!

Kia was now giggling like mad from wherever she was in the nexus. Oh yes. This entire situation was either driving her insane (and really it didn't take much for her to get there) with the moronic logic or it was just one of those days.

And Zhilbar is just plain behind her, with His Sad Face.

"..You're going to whip up a flag that has at least forty conjugations of 'banging' and plant it, aren't you."

HIS POWERS OF PREDICTION ARE MIGHTY! Sometimes innacurate, but still MIGHTY!

"Somehow, I find that hard to believe.."

It's a friggin' FLAG, people. Would it be nice if it did work? Yes. Is it going to work? Not even Zhilbar thinks so! Is it an excuse for people to work their artisty skills? You betcha!

Given the nature of the Nexus... here. Try this one, I think it works with the Sign. *Triv? Is snickering. Madly. Could it be possible that she's found something that will actually get her drunk, or is it just that this has hit Triv's funny bone?*

"..I LOVE IT! Triv, you marvelous, marvelous lady, this is absolutely gorgeous!"

Zhilbar's going off to plant it next to the other one now, yay! Get it juust right, and it should mix in with the Sign's formidable enchantments. Let none dare miss its mighty AWESOME!

((For you, sir or ma'am! :D

Since when are we being invaded? I haven't been around much, but damn.

"We got a 24-hour warning yesterday, and apparently it's a classic case of forcing metahuman signatures. 'Sign up or you will be declared Enemy Of The State,' indeed! Sometimes, I really hate the United States. Plenty of heroes, yes.. but so many idiots!"

And then she is encircled by dragony goodness! Well, a ten-foot area surrounding her, but the thought is there. "And how wags thy world, My dear?" Zhilbar always does like a certain fun formality, even in cases of 'Hay! Sup?'

So I suppose I'll be playing the part of the National Rifle Association to back up said flag?

"Well, I wouldn't say no.."

Sure, the other side doesn't have a chance. But Zhilbar doesn't want to give the non-Nexus powerhouses room for mun-demanded angst! The MUNS are the real enemy in a wartime situation!

Let's try and give them as little wiggle room as possible.

"Eh, some idiotic iron-plated human. From the United States, although an alternate to the one we got the Idiot Captain America from, Methinks. I rather expect him to wear his metallic chastity belt around his shoulders in short order, honestly."

Especially if it's a big talony dragon-foot doing the kicking!
