Today, my mouth is a loaded gun and I am carrying three bullets that will determine how this election goes. In my years of experience, I have learned a few things about destroying those who will stand in my path. All it takes is the right shot between the eyes to kill someone.

Ready.

“Ladies, Gentlemen. Four years ago I came to you offering my experience. Today, I am here to give you my hopes. I hope that this race will change our country for the better instead of for the worse. Now more than ever we need change. With our elected President gone (god protect him wherever he may be), we need strong leaders more than ever.”

Aim.

“And I am sad to say that a lot of these candidates are just going to make it worse. Take Mr. Savage, he doesn’t respect anyone or anything. He doesn’t respect the office and the responsibility that comes with it and he doesn’t respect the flag and what it stands for. He doesn’t even respect the people which he claims to protect.”

Fire.

“But worst of all, I have to say I am angry at President Samuel Washington. Not only was it reported to me that he requested information on the candidates from one of my agents (who denied his request), he had the audacity to come into my office to offer me a treacherous deal, because, and I quote. “Your Agency has the capability to discredit them. I wish to call upon this capability. If you are uninterested in moral reasons to do as I ask, I also offer one favor for each candidate to drop out as a direct result of your actions. Good for virtually anything but thermonuclear war, from either the future POTUS,or a sitting VP.”

“I cannot stand by and watch as this tyrant, who threatens the freedom which we define ourselves by, runs without me doing everything that I can to stop him.”

“Which is why I am announcing my candidacy for President of the United States.”

Through my mind, I listen to words that sound like the voices of angels singing to me. A perfectly timed question is uttered on the "James Merrarn" interview that would end his legitimacy as a candidate playing on repeat.

The reporters try to atomize me with questions.

I can’t hear them. I can only hear another bullet being locked and loaded.

Mr. Lance Harvey would like negotiations with you.

Negotiations about funding your campaign.

We consider it 4 years since the last election IC? I've only been writing as though Quentin had been in the White House for about three months before going missing.

I'm trying to legitimize our system and make it seem like we're not that screwed up. However, if that's an issue, it's only a minor one and I don't have a problem with changing it.

@hound_of_war: Perhaps we should just avoid numbers entirely and leave it relatively ambiguous. Marvel and DC do that, right?

That was great, and a good example of how masterminds often outwit themselves. Its why Ivana doesn't really respect any 'prep' people or fear the masterminds, no matter how smart.

Bruh. I'd kill to have adversity similar to this thrown my character's way. Adversity breeds character development. Think of how Sam would react if/when Hound is elected. That disillusionment you feel IRL right now. Use it! I get that your dream was to become CV president but perhaps CV has different ideas for you. Embrace the curveballs, brother! It's a beautiful thing to get wrecked.

You don't need to say 'for one' when you use the numbers, it's redundant, pleb.

@redwhiteblue: It was a great surprise and a great twist in the story. Other roleplayers don't exist to give you what you want. They have their own goals and its rational for them to peruse their goals.

@redwhiteblue: But you can have a villain with a good, organic motivation that we got to see evolve in real time! Sam has the potential to be an amazing recurring character.

Nox throws curveballs, it's what he does. The whole Lichter-in-the-CIA thing was a shock to me (I was just going to have him escape), but because he did it with me, I have this whole great new element to the character. Make use of your resources! :)

"You honestly believe I wasn't going to betray him? I just used the opportunity to manipulate you too. Did you think I was going to let HIM be president while I ride shotgun? Gullible. Your plan was shortsighted Mr. Savage. Leaking that he wanted to bribe us would have been a half measure in the long run. I'm the one who told the reporter to get him to deny it on national television. The people now know that he lies."
