Ode to bleeprin
I wander through these halls so grey,

As recruits get out of my way

I smile at them, they scream and flee

My eyes gleam with insanity

I raise my bloodstained sword up high

With glee I shout my battle cry

And every Sue that I do kill

Makes me a little madder still

But give me bleeprin, small and white

That candle in the darkest night

The only thing to dull the pain,

That balm that soothes a battered brain

Let me forget each awful fic

Each sparkly, sluttish, angsty chick

And happy shall I be once more,

As sane and peaceful as before

The magnificant Pyro! (Whom we refuse to believe is a pyro. Of course, he will now likely set us on fire.)

Agent Pyro, one of our brave Plothole Division agents, takes a short break (!) and runs into Multiverse Monitor artist-in-the-field Agent Arthme. As you can see he was more than happy (and a little amused..) to have his picture done... maybe he didn't know what it was for?
Pyro enjoys independent movies, projectile weapons, and romantic evenings in front of a roaring fire. A very large roaring fire. He currently occupies a response center with Agent Lizzy Fisher, and although they're looking after an adorable elfling currently, don't worry-- there's nothing going on!

Agents enraged; Sunflower Official Refuses to Comment

Written by Agent Eris, Dept. of Imaginary Objects

As the entirety of the PPC is aware, there has been a recent spate of mystery assassinations outside the auspices of the Department of Mary Sues. Some of the targets have been legitimate Sues, snatched right from under the noses of assigned agents; others, original characters that had been deemed safe during initial PPC reconnaissance.

The Mystery Assassin, who styles itself "Alexandra Ward" first appeared about three months ago, snatching a particularly horrible 'Spirited Away' Dragon-Mating-Season-Sue out from under the noses of Agent Joan and trainee Agent Symphony of the Dept. of Rare Fandoms. "At firs', we did not t'ink anyt'ing of eet," says Agent Joan, "she is anuder Sue, who eez going to miss her, eh? But den, tabernac?"

Symphony finished for her. "We were willing to let this go, this once, as an overzealous fan out there, somewhere in the Multiverse, trying to help us. Then she, he, or it, started getting too big for their britches."

Records obtained by the Multiverse Monitor indicate that, in between the date of its first appearance and the current time, the Mystery Assassin pursued and inhumed no less than fifteen Sues in the Narnia, Harry Potter, and Lord of the Rings fandoms, with their primary focus on the latter. At first, the targets were evidently drawn from the departmental Hit List, but the assassin began branching out, killing anyone that even began to infringe on Canon in any possible way.

A roving recon Agent, who did not wish their name to be used, witnessed what was very nearly an assassination of Queen Lothiriel of Rohan. "I saw this arrow coming, and managed to knock her out of the way just in time. She didn't see me, she thought she tripped over a rock." The Agent looked over their shoulder before continuing. "There was a charge list attached to the arrow, and I read it before handing it over to the Flowers. There was only one charge on it, and that was for wearing a blue dress embroidered with white swans. That's the symbol and colors of Dol Amroth, her birthplace! Perfectly legit! What sorta crack is this idiot on?"

The final straw for the Flowers that Be was when the assassin began to cull the herd of PPC agents themselves. Agents who were perceived as being weak or supposedly unworthy were hounded and terrorized into exile, in two cases, or madness, as seen in the tragic fate of Agent Atropos. Said Agent was purposely marooned in an exceptionally disgusting Mary-Sue self insert and slashfic involving a twelve chapter bedroom scene between Elladan, Elrohir, and the Weasley twins. She had been left no survival gear and no way to escape.

"She'll probably never recover from the trauma", says Dr. McKenzie of Fictional Psychology. "When they give up trying to gnaw through the restraints, it?s a sign that they think it's no longer worth trying", added Nurse Constance Sims.

Agent Atropos had voluntarily joined the PPC from a Greek Mythology Suefic, and had been successfully undergoing Percussive Therapy (Fuzzy Baseball Bats Division) to suppress her Sueish instincts. At the time of her capture, she had not yet been assigned a partner or a Response Center.

In a message addressed to a high ranking PPC official, and accidentally sent to Agent Suicide's response center (RC #2771a), the Mystery Assassin 'Alexandra Ward' stated "Do you think that this is the first questionable thing I've ever done in the service of the PPC?...I was serving [their] interests...long before you joined us." The Mystery Assassin then went on to brag, in the most Evil Villain-ish speech seen outside of bad anime, that he, she, or it has "served the PPC...for...years now" and that the work covering its tracks "was just an example of the simpler techniques" of which it was capable.

The Monitor attempted to interview one of the Flowers to try and find out what, if anything, is being done about this rouge. The Sunflower Official not only declined to comment, but locked his door and shouted Go away! when this reporter tried to interview him. The other Department heads were equally as reclusive and reticent when it came to information, with the exception of the Marquis de Sod. We're going through all our personnel files as we speak in order to get to the bottom of this, he said, tetchily. You?re in the way. Please leave. Now.

Agents, on the other hand, have very loud opinions on the matter and are not at all afraid to voice them. Agent Peter of the Department of Internal Affairs commented, in response to "Ward"'s professions of service to the PPC, "Other people have said that over the years. Most of them are now dead." Agent Bertie of the Department of Imaginary Objects agreed, saying "Like, this, like, faux agent is so a total whackjob. They should, like, be the ones watching their backs. Or whatever." Agent Fritz added, "The little strumpet, if it truly is female, might find itself declared an Evyl!PPC Sue if this intolerable behavior continues." Both Agents then went off in search of cake.

Feeling somewhat guilty for picking the lock on her friend's response center and downloading what have come to be known as "The Lexy Files" for use in this article, this reporter then decided to take her life in her hands, and attempted to interview Agents Diocletian and Suicide to get their point of view on the issue. Agent Suicide is currently residing in the hospital wing, recovering from a massive stroke at the sight of Horny!Rapist!Resurrected!Sirius feeling up Unwilling!Rapee!Hermaphrodite!Good!Snape.

When asked for a comment on the "Lexy" situation, Agent Suicide was quoted from his hospital bed as saying: "What? Oh for Na'an's sake, not again! You're not a fangirl, are you? I've been finding drool smears on my door. Ever tried to get up in the morning and wind up slipping in somebody else's saliva? Didn't think so! Quiet, my arse! Is this about that camera someone put in the shower? Is that what "Suicide watch" means? Is it? Dio, give me the damn chair back! IS IT?" Agent Dio, attempting to hold down her raving partner, chimed in with "Eris, get the hell out of here! And if you want to come back and visit, take out those damned glittery earrings first!"

Oddly enough, it seemed one of the sanest commentaries on the whole debacle.

Suicide, once away from the sight of rhinestones, added that there seems to be some 'annoying' Suvian influence in FicPsych, as the same nurse has tried to cure him with True Love?s First Kiss five times since last Thursday. Possible connections to the "Lexy" case are currently being studied.

The What Weapon? Column

I'd like to think that it's summer here in HQ: things are certainly getting hotter around here, as just when we thought we'd "taken care of" Subjugation, another trial known as "That Series" rears its ugly head to make us Agents "hot under the collar" and test our skills and our sanity. And what better to wear when battling overly-amorous animals than this season's "hottest" new number, the "Morningstar"-brand sable jumpsuit? Morningstar is a relatively newcomer to the market, and a real find, if I do say so myself. They really seem to have "caught on" to the needs of today's Agent: a tough-wearing outfit with a professional finish, combining ingenious flameproofing with sassy good looks. I picked up two! The only downside is their cost: the "damage" is pretty "steep", potentially leaving poorer Agents "out in the cold".

Luckily, another brand has come back "with a smash", catering for the assassin on a budget. You all remember last year's simply dreadful "Pelican suit", with its sawn-off jeans and frankly embarrassing tassels? Well the company behind that mistake, Bongo Bongo, has "got its act together" and is offering a well-made yet inexpensive cargo-pants-and-halter combination, featuring the distinctive blue drums symbol of the company. Rumour has it that even our very own Agent Suicide has been seen wearing it!

But don't swoon yet, ladies! There's yet another company "vying for our attention": the ever-popular Saloon Gun, whose bold yet tasteful "Robber's Creek" jacket wowed us all just last season. Now they're back with a racy little number they call "All Cylinders": the little black dress you can wear anywhere, whether slogging through snow up Caradharas, battling on a remote volcanic planet, or "boogying down" at the PPC Christmas Party. And the ever-generous Saloon Gun have announced that the first twenty buyers will receive a gunsword holster in the colour of their choice, absolutely free! I don't know about you, but I think this is the perfect time to be "hitting the high street"!

We recently recieved a list of activities now forbidden in Headquarters. In the spirit (and also because of the threats to cut off our electricity), we decided to publish this list. Of course, that's no guaruntee we're going to heed it...

35. I will not tell any of the Flowers that HQ is on fire and it's going to reach them soon.
36. I will not ask any Canonical character if he or she sleeps with a sword or other similarly shaped weapon. That innuendo is dead and rotting.

48. I will not bring Detritus's Piecemaker into PPC Headquarters, no matter how much my Response Center would be improved by knocking the wall in and expanding.

53. I will not attempt to discover whether or not freedom of speech extends to crying 'Mary Sue!' in a crowded cafeteria.

54. Trying to give New Recruit directions to their Response Centres is cruel, not funny.
-Especially when I tell them to try and walk up the walls. Gravity does work in HQ.
55. Saying 'Thank God it wasn't...' is forbidden, no matter what the situation.
-Tempting the ironic overpower does not make you cool. But it might get you shot.
-So is saying 'but what happens if I...'

56. Putting Glitter into an Agent's coffee is not funny.
-Nor, when they try and kill you, is telling them not to come near you because you don't want to catch It.
57. Just because the Doctor can stitch your head back on doesn't make it okay to run around to throwing it at people screaming 'think fast'.

68. Stabbing yourself on purpose is not funny either. That's what Bleeprin is for.
69. Urple paint is not funny, particularly when the Sunflower Official is covered in it.
70. Since I will use these words often in my work, I should stop making finger-quotes around the words "sword", "weapon", "lightsabre", "wand", "staff", etc.
71. I will not allow Agent Stormsong to watch Deliverance.
-Or allow him to read the sections of Something Positive involving the Redneck Trees.

82. I will not tell Wile E. Coyote that a portal is a magical field that will give him the ability to catch the Roadrunner.
83. Contrary to popular belief, doing a striptease in the middle of the Cafeteria will not score me points with Agent Suicide.

-Even if I'm not human/humanoid species.
84. I will not mock the janitors of the PPC headquarters.

99. I am not allowed to construct miniature Daleks out of whatever I have lying around the RC.

(Since I'm the editor, and since I am stubborner (is that even a word?) than a mule and thus will stick to plan no matter what, this page is being reserved for the horoscopes that I think Tungsten was proposing to offer. Yes, I know I could do something else with the space. No, I don't think I will. Except for making faux-humourous comments, o'course.)

FicPysch counselor?s first date in two years interrupted by serious MSS case

"I was so excited," SpringB said,
"This is all
her fault."
HQ-September 13, 2006 was beginning as an extraordinary day for FicPsych Agent SpringB as she prepared herself for her first date in two years. Staring into Agent Stu's* eyes, SpringB received an urgent call from FicPsych about a serious MSS case making SpringB ditch her 'friend' for work as if her appearance could magically make Arwen better.
The case that interrupted SpringB's perfect night was Arwen, brought in by Agents Whitey and Cheek of Department of Mary-Sues (DOMS), LOTR Division. Whitey said, "Arwen was really bad. If we had brought her in any later, it might have been considered negligent homicide to our sacred LOTR canon."
According to the Agents on duty when Arwen was brought in, Arwen was exhibiting signs of MSS. They reported she was "pompous, arrogant, pretentious, haughty, snobbish, ostentatious, and obviously showing all the signs of MSS." On further note, their thesaurus was confiscated and turned in on charges of overusage.
Now, SpringB is not an ugly agent. When asked about why this was her first date in two years, she replied, "I get so caught up in my work. You start to think it's a conspiracy to keep in this [expletive deleted] office."
When questioned about this conspiracy, the Powers-That-Be had no response. However, the Sunflower Official (SO) did say, "We're proud that Agents Whitey and Cheek brought this serious case to the attention of FicPsych so quickly and apologize for any inconvenience to FicPsych personnel."
"Arwen could have picked any other day to come down with MSS," SpringB said, "Why couldn't she have picked that one day where I was called into the Kudzu's office or that one time when I was treating an agent obviously faking her illness to get out of her current assignment?
"Really," SpringB rationalized, "What's a few hours in the long run? Oh, Arwen's doing fine now, I think, but I believe that my chances with --well, my date are totally ruined. I blame Aragorn. If he'd keep a better eye on her, there would be less work for the rest of us."

The Wackiest Dares Ever Seen In HQ Or Out Of It!
There isn't an Agent in Headuarters unfamiliar with the ever-popular alcohol-saturated game 'Truth or Dare'. And, of course, there's nobody unfamiliar with some of the things that get thought up. Since it'd be a pity to lose 'em, the fourteen craziest and/or most personal dares have been collected for your viewing pleasure.
1: Strip every person of the opposite gender in a dark room.
2: Light a sparkler, hold it between your little fingers, and sing the Hedgehog Song.
3: Form a vertical human pyramid with twelve other people.
4: If a Flower is present, kiss said Flower as, ahem, intimately as possible.
5: Drink six litres of Bleepsinthe and then sing A Wizard's Staff Has A Knob On The End.
6: Attempt to copulate with a broomstick.
7: Soak a rocket (firework) in spirits and light the fuse.

8: Strip naked and dance some version of the Highland Fling.

9: Dress as a Pict, right down to the blue paint, and charge down a hill screaming, preferably straight into a battle.

10: Disguised as an orc, portal into Minas Tirith and shriek in Aragorn's face.

11: Attempt to obtain video footage of all previous Truth or Dare games. (A warning from Agent Estelnar: This will not work unless we have it and want to give it to you; if we don't then you'll run into an elf with several broken bottles and a human prone to going berserker.)

12: Put a firework in a piano.

13: Find Lipwigzers. Feed Bleepsinthe to Lipwigzers. 'Fleague a jade', except using Lipwigzers instead of horses. Release Lipwigzers. Run like fury.

14: Blow smoke rings with a lighted cigarette, only not with the cigarette in your mouth.

(Thanks to everyone who contributed. I think that'd be Eris, Rez, Coffeecup, Twiggy, and...Zoe, I guess, do we have a Zoe? I'm afraid I can be extremely unobservant. At any rate...exalt them! Praise them with much gusto! And I did some of it, as always, but I can't claim credit, it's my job. *Grin.*
Did I mention that this issue caused way too much stress for me? ~Starwind Rohana, editor.)
