Author's Notes: This is probably going to be jossed very shortly, but I couldn't help myself.

Penny cackled, perfectly.

Dr. Horrible felt his knees go weak; he could tell it was a natural laugh, not one like his that had been developed over countless hours of practise. His crush from before paled in comparison to what he felt now: He was head-over-heels in love with this girl. He wanted to marry her, buy a nice abandoned warehouse with a fallout shelter in the sub-basement, settle down and breed an army of minions, maybe even bear her children . . . he realized she was ranting, and refocused his attention.

" . . . and by giving the homeless a major role in my plan, I've gained an army that can hide in plain sight! No one will even give them a second glance until it's too late! Even if I do say so myself, it's genius to use the public's apathy against them! And then the petitions – no one ever reads them anyway, it's amazing what you can slip by . . ."

She turned to the table where Captain Hammer was strapped down securely – who'd have guessed his secret weakness was cling wrap?

"As for you, my dear Captain, your body will never be found. "

"Fiend! I thought you cared for me, after all I've done – I rescued you from the van!" The restrained hero glared at her.

"Oh, please. The van stopped before you touched it – you just shoved me into a pile of garbage. I only sang what I did to distract you, so you'd be left with a false sense of security when I lured you into my trap." She brushed her hair from her eyes before lowering her goggles.

"You lied to me through song! How could you?"

Penny sighed. "I'm getting tired of trying to get this through your thick skull, so I'll just kill you now. Because. I'm. Evil. Doctor Horrible, if you will?"

Moving forward with the remote to the death ray they'd collaborated on, his gloved fingers brushed hers as he set it in her hand. "You've earned the honour, sweetie."

She flashed him a grin. "Don't call me that. But thank you."

As they gazed into each other's eyes, she pointed the device at Captain Hammer and pressed the button.

HOMG Evil Penny! You fiend. Love, so much love for this fic.

It had to be done. I watched the show, a neuron connection flashed in my brain . . . I couldn't do anything else until it was finished.

wow, this fic reminded me of narbonic, and now, the icon!!

"settle down and breed an army of minions, maybe even bear her children . . . "

"who'd have guessed his secret weakness was cling wrap?"

"You lied to me through song! How could you?"

ROF. This is great! And thanks for adding it to horrible_fic - glad to have it there!

They're Mad. They're not limited to the possible.

And, thinking about it, Penny was so efficient about ensuring Captain Hammer would forget entirely about stopping the villain. Cunning and charm, all in one neat package.

eeee I dig this very much!

He wanted to marry her, buy a nice abandoned warehouse with a fallout shelter in the sub-basement, settle down and breed an army of minions, maybe even bear her children

lol! Great little details in here.

Thank you! Glad you liked.

Hee, they'll rule the world together.

Inspired! Penny is just pure, evil genius and Horrible's perfect consort.

...he could tell it was a natural laugh, not one like his that had been developed over countless hours of practise.

It's very noble of Horrible to be proud of his girl and not resent her natural abilities. *g*
Jul. 17th, 2008 01:29 pm (UTC)
Hey, he said from the start that he wants her to rule at his side. Having her take some initiative of her own would be a total bonus.

Regarding the laugh, I remember this quote . . . "Mediocrity knows nothing higher than itself, but talent instantly recognizes genius." He's not afraid to admit to his lessons, so it's easy to admire a natural talent.

This needs a musical cue to round it out...

Oh you did it! You did it!
You made the Hammer fall
You've defeated my old nemesis
Your the greatest of them all

You did it, you did it!
You're a supervillain too!
You are now the only one
Who could be my one love true!

HAMMER (as Penny presses the button):
Whoa---a-a- Whoooo

I Did It, I Did it!
I made you notice me!
I wasn't sure that you would ever
Fall in love with me!

I Did it, i did it!
It all came out so well
Now we can be together
As the music swells!

HAMMER:(as Billy Pushes the button)
Whoa---a-a- Whoooo!

We did it we did it!
We found each other now
With Captain Hammer finished
We can take our final bow.

We Did it, We Did it!
We now can live in bliss
Until the next bug super guy
come fto interrupt our kiss.

HAMMER:(as they push the button together)
Wooo---OOOOOO! Urk!

. . . you win. *admits defeat*
Jul. 16th, 2008 04:24 pm (UTC)
S'okay, I was...inspired. yes, inspired by your...um...stirring...Stirring prose.

I love this story, BTW. I made an icon too, but not being an icon-maker of note I'll just dump it here. Enjoy.

Exactly! She's nice, but not shy about saying what she thinks.
Jul. 18th, 2008 11:07 pm (UTC)
Awesome. I'm particularly fond of this: he could tell it was a natural laugh, not one like his that had been developed over countless hours of practise.

[referred here by stultiloquentia, after I said, "You know, I hope Penny turns out to be an evil genius."]

"You lied to me through song! How could you?"


Great fic. Of course, Penny's character is nothing like this, but it's nice to see characters differently every now and then. Awesome fic!

I wrote it after Act I! It's AU!
Sep. 28th, 2008 04:11 pm (UTC)
Now I really have to wonder what was in those petitions...
Sep. 29th, 2008 02:57 am (UTC)
Heh heh heh.

--Okay, so how did I miss this? Because seriously, this is evil!Penny that I can get my brain around. EPIC WIN.
Mar. 23rd, 2009 04:58 pm (UTC)
Well, I wrote it shortly after Act I came out. It's at the very back of all the fic archives 'cause of that. Easy to miss.

This evil!Penny is happy to recruit the homeless, as the Henchman's Union regulations give her an excuse to use the proceeds of heists to cover their food, clothing, shelter, and health plan.
Mar. 23rd, 2009 05:10 pm (UTC)
ROFL! Oh, this is so awesome.

The "Lying through song" line seems familiar. At first I thought it might have been from Once More With Feeling, but it's from the Simpsons, isn't it? The one where Apu gets fired because of Homer and has to stay with them?
Mar. 23rd, 2009 05:21 pm (UTC)
Yes. I'm not claiming to be original, simply that the quote worked in that spot.
Mar. 23rd, 2009 05:43 pm (UTC)
Yeah, it did work there. There's nothing wrong with a reference.
