Not that she wouldn't take him up on it.

Now I want to write stories about these guys!

...do people actually do the cutting-up-the-card thing?  I've seen it a
bunch of times in media, but that really seems like the kind of thing
that'd get you sued or assaulted. (Of course, either way, it seems like the
kind of thing that'd happen in the Looniverse.)

You know, I was wondering how he kept up with the rates quoted in the first

I like how it's clearly just making up rules at this point.

Honestly, I have to wonder why he didn't try this before!

Mwahahaha, long-term plot hooks <3

Oooooh, yes.  Having a plutocrat in charge of the LNH definitely dovetails
nicely with the System Corruptors status quo.

Heeheeheehee. <3

Yes! <3 And quite enjoyably so.  Y stands for yay!
