Manga Man yawned.

Now, don't get him wrong.  It wasn't that he didn't like the way
things were.  After all, he'd basically succeeded in his original
mission: manga and anime were popular and well-appreciated in the US.
And it wasn't as if he *wanted* to go back to fighting net.heroes for
a living; he enjoyed his new career as the mascot and chief
spokespersonl for OsakaPop Publications.

It was just... kinda boring.

He put on his virtual-reality visor and tapped his finger on the
pseudoreal icons.  Hmmmm.  Speaking of net.heroes, he hadn't looked at
rec.arts.comics.creative for awhile.  Maybe there was a new issue of
Easily-Discovered Man (okay, probably not, but...)

Ah, the RACCies.  He remembered the good old days... the pomp, the
majesty, the time Pointless Awards Man tried to fuse ASH and
Superguy... good times.

The computer ding!ed, breaking him from his reverie.  Virus found?

Looking closer, he gasped.  There was a virus encoded directly into
the plain text of the emai!  How devious (and totally impossible)!

Tapping a few keys, he isolated a copy of the virus and executed it.
He gasped.  The virus would lay in wait until the day of the vote,
then would take the winner of each... and delete every post ever made
by that person!  No archive would be safe!  It would be as if an LNH
author had never existed... he shuddered.

Manga Man stood, a nonexistent gust of wind making the spikes of his
hair wave dramatically.  "I must go and warn the LNH, before it's...

With that, he leapt out the window and was gone.

And, unseen within the quantum foam of the mangatech hard drive, a
malign intelligence smiled.


Cascade bait much? ``

nominations, darnit.
