overkilled: (this time i might just disappear)
[personal profile] overkilled
[ Somehow, after all those repeated (failed) kidnapping attempts, a semi-unwelcome stay in the castle (that was also a failed kidnapping attempt), and several more awkward encounters - somehow, some way, he's managed to actually befriend the princess. Which, admittedly, wasn't exactly what he was going for in the beginning, but when he thinks about it, it still sort of counts as stealing her away to his side. It was just a platonic, non-combative theft! And now, he's in the perfect position to get close to her and concoct a perfect plan of sabotage. That's right - he was actually successful. Kind of. Totally what he was going for.

In another area, however, he's been extremely unsuccessful. As the evil demon lord, it's only natural to intend to kidnap the gentle, kind princess of the good kingdom and make her his bride. That would be cool, and wonderfully evil, of course. The only problem is that his plans had disintegrated pretty quickly, turning from "steal the princess" to "steal the princess's heart." And then that had turned more into "win the princess's heart." The more he'd watched her, the more he'd admired her, and now that he's actually friends with her, his puppy crush is turning into a full-grown bull mastiff of romance. Or something. The point is, he's pretty in love with her (though he wouldn't admit it), and has made exactly zero progress in winning her heart.

So when he hears about the royal masquerade ball being held in her castle, he pretty much has to go. It's a great opportunity to kidnap her/spend time with her/????, of course, but more than that... the idea of her in a pretty dress that he won't be able to see, dancing with someone other than him makes him feel all upset. Maou's mind is made up pretty much instantly.

But, of course, the demon lord isn't going to get invited to a party. Which means he has to sneak in. It's quite painful for him to part with his ravishingly intimidating final boss costume, but he does what he must to blend in with the populace and get closer to his princess...! There's not much he can do about the horns, but he's hoping his mask will help him play them off as part of a costume. As for the fangs and nails... Well. He'll just have to hope for the best.

There's a reason he's not a very successful demon lord.

He manages to slip in pretty easily, with some clever application of his shapeshifting abilities - bats are good at getting in through those little balcony things - and, miraculously, lay low while he waits for her to make her appearance. No, he hasn't told her that he's coming. Surprising her with his dashing, courageous appearance is obviously way cooler. ]
