And yet it wasn't until my nearly-operational [[Franchise/StarWars Death Star]] ([[CaptainErsatz I mean Terror Star]]) was destroyed by a single plucky [[Franchise/StarWars X-Wing]] ([[{{Expy}} I mean Terran Fighter with X-shaped wings]]) that I stopped to think: "Wow, am I the bad guy here?"\\\

[[WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer It's my answer to everything.]] How did I try to mend relations with the Terrans? I destroyed a sun. How did I vanquish the Dread Lords? I destroyed their sun. How did I tackle the volatile Drengin? Destroyed all their suns. Drath relations dodgy? Gear up to destroy some suns.\\\
[[TheTetrisEffect It was spreading to real life, too.]] Deputy Editor Tim called just now to ask how this diary was coming along, and all I could say was "It's taking a while. Couldn't we just destroy the sun?"

'''Jacob Marley:''' Business! Mankind was my business. The common welfare was my business; charity, mercy, forbearance, and benevolence, were, all, my business. The dealings of my trade were but a drop of water in the comprehensive ocean of my business! At this time of the rolling year, I suffer most. Why did I walk through crowds of fellow-beings with my eyes turned down, and never raise them to that blessed Star which led the Wise Men to a poor abode? Were there no poor homes to which its light would have conducted ''me''!
