...like so!


Kid Enthusiastic shook himself and watched his body land.

He didn't mind that he'd been killed dramatically - it was part and parcel
of the job!  But he had been hoping that the experimental web of filaments
he'd woven into his costume would absorb at least *one* blast like that.
Back to the drawing board, it seemed.

If one had vision that looked into the aetheric, one would notice that he
looked very little like a ten-year-old boy at the moment, or, indeed, the
forty-year-old he chronologically was.  He was more like a pinpoint of
light, with fluffy clouds trailing behind as it moved.  He drifted
purposefully over to the Otakaiser's device, hoping to gather some intel on
it before--

"Oh.  It's *you* again."

Kid E sighed.  Before *he* showed up. "Hello, Ebon Skater."

The man before him, hovering slightly off the ground, fumed.  He was
scrawny and pale, with dishwater-blond hair.  He looked to be around
college-aged, and was dressed in an immaculately tailored suit one size too
large for him. "That's *Death*, not that you didn't know.  I was hoping to
actually do my job today, but now I see that that won't be possible."

If he'd had eyes, he would have rolled them.  This being was one of the few
people in this wild and woolly world that he simply... didn't like.  It was
weird! "Y'know, you don't have to bug me every time I die.  It's not like
I'm one of those confused revenants that don't know which way the afterlife

Death sniffed disdainfully. "Regulations state that all deceased must be
tracked, no matter their metaphysical state or ultimate destination.  In
the case of... net.heroes..." He pronounced the word as if naming the exact
type of rotting, moldy garbage he was currently scraping off his shoes.
"...a representative of Deletion is required at each extinguishing."

"Well *yeah* but come on!  I'm busy here, anyway." He sent his attention
back at the device.

An "a-HRM" issued from Death's dry throat. "Knowledge from beyond the veil
is a strictly controlled substance."

"Knowledge isn't a substance!"

"Nevertheless, I am required to ask you to cease and desist."

Kid Enthusiastic made the aetheric equivalent of a frustrated puff of
breath out his nose and turned the full power of his spiritual viewpoint at
Death, shining like a ghostly searchlight. "Ask away, then!  It's not like
you can *do* anything - I'm an Immortal with a capital I, which is *just*
as official an office as yours!  Feel free to kick it up to your bosses,
but they must wearing out their 'REJECTED' stamp on your paperwork!"

Death narrowed his eyes. "Oh, trust me.  There *will* be consequences for
this willful twisting of the codified control policies."

"Fine, fine.  So you go and do that, and leave me to wwwwWHEEEEEEEE" Kid
Enthusiastic was suddenly sucked back into his body as it knit back

And in the sudden spirit silence, Death chuckled. "Oh, I plan to." He
walked off, into the mists.
