HLO Pleads to DIK to Free the Heroes

Now that the DIK draft has been completed, the HLO sends a plea out to the DIK to release their "captive" heroes and allow them to return to their storybook homes and heroines (after a short stop at the Hero Shelter/Get-Away to recover from their ordeal... or think of excuses as to what they did on their vacation ^_~). We would welcome our DIK sisters with open arms (and we would share our books, chocolates, rum and vacationing heroes).

All over the storybook worlds, evil is running amok without the heroes to fight the ongoing forces of evil. The headquarters of the HLO (Get-Away Island) is over-flowing with heroines who have lost their heroes. Extra shipments of chocolates have been ordered to keep the heroines (and founder Alice and myself) calm. Some of the hero creators (Nalini Singh and Meljean Brook) have joined in our cause to help "liberate" their heroes from the clutches of the DIK.

The list of heroes who have been "drafted" and who they are serving is thus:

To see the complete draft history go to the following sites:
ROUND 1: CarolynJean's.
ROUND 2: Sarai's
ROUND 3: lisabea's.
ROUND 4: MaryKate's.
ROUND 5: Christine's.
ROUND 6: Katie(babs) & Kristie(J)'s.
ROUND 7: Sula's

Some heroes who were residing at the Shelter/Get-Away were drafted. These heroes are at the top of the "liberation" list.
  • Daemon Sadi aka The Sadiest (The Black Jewels novels by Anne Bishop)
  • Hawke (Psy-Changling Series by Nalini Singh)
Again the HLO pleads to the DIK to "release" their heroes. The heroes will be spending some time at the Get-Away to recover their skills to fight the forces of darkness and to regain some dignity after being place in an apron and forced to dust (no names to be named ^_^).


Tracy said...

I'm thinking my heroes are quite happy right where they are. If they'd like to come visit that's just fine.

Katie(babs) said...

My sex slaves are very happy having rum, chocolate and all the sex they can handle.

Sarai said...

Well I did my part I gave you Rejar there is nothing else I can do my hands are tied. Although I hear Holmes wanders from place to place and never pays attention to his surroundings: wink, wink *cough*

MaryKate said...

Ummm, please believe me, Hawke asked me to let you know that he is a VERY happy puppy dog. And has absolutely NO wish to be liberated.

So, gratefully, NOOO!

Sounds like you are treating your "captives" quite well. But it is the HLO stand to "liberate" the heroes (whether or not they want it^_~) so that their storybook heroines and those not on the DIK island (founders) can also have the pleasure of their company.

BTW: We now have an official island anthem. "It's Raining Men" by the Weather Girls. ^_^
