Interlude (sort of): Omnicide

My day went to abrupt meltdown-level shit so although I have a part ready to post, I’m going to leave it until tomorrow so I have a chance to unpack and get my head back together again.

Instead, I adapted one of my blog comments into a relevant aki’Pedia page on the subject of omnicide. Enjoy. Again. I guess.

About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy.

  1. Sorry about your day, man, hang in there! Ugh.

    Cool, I didn’t bookmark the aki’Pedia yet *does so*

    “Few criminals, of course, get close enough to committing omnicide to actually attract the attention of anyone who might be inclined to stop them. So far, 100% of attempted omnicides have been prevented and the criminals responsible sentenced accordingly. The elevation of a successful omnicidal criminal to Class Eleven criminal status is, therefore, a purely theoretical exercise in criminal philosophy.”

    I would add that it would, of course, be logically impossible to convict anyone of successful omnicide. I was thinking that throughout reading the entry XD

      Well, right, exactly. That was the (intended) joke there: presumably, if anyone ever did succeed in committing omnicide, nobody would ever know.

      I’ve got a couple of other tweaks to make to that page anyway but it’ll wait until tomorrow. Can’t do it on my phone.

    Hope the day is getting better. Meltdowns are the fucking worst.
