Continuing to fill out Ijishi's Weird and Wacky Family Tree (tm). ;p
Scene: where Gaav and Gustavo - revealed to be Zoamel Gustav - had been fighting. It also happens the "anteroom" to where Voidstar had sealed himself away.
Gustavo (slamming his fists repeatedly into the ground): Dammit...dammit...
Enter one meddling mazoku.
Xelloss: Hm, I guess Chaos Dragon Gaav was a bit much for you.
Gustavo's entire body flinches violently at the sight of Xelloss, causing Gustavo to wince in pain.
Xelloss (wags a finger): Easy, Zoey-chan! Gaav did quite a number on you. Good thing he knew I was coming, or he would have tried harder.
Gustavo (obviously displeased): And I'm supposed to be...thankful?
Xelloss (shrugs): You can hate me if you wish. (smirks) I don't mind.
Xelloss (pouts): Come on, Zoey-chan! I'm a Mazoku! What do you expect?
Before Gustavo has a chance to reply, however, Xelloss pulls a large globe of energy from inside his cloak.
Xelloss (patronizingly): Now, say "aah"...
Gustavo (bitterly): And how much suffering did you inflict to get that?
Xelloss (feigned shock): Why, Zoey-chan! Don't you recognize the faithful devotion of your number one worshipper?
Gustavo (blinks): Worshipper? (realization hits) You mean that nut Martina something something?
Xelloss (wags finger): She may be insane, but her loyalty is quite admirable, don't you think?
Gustavo takes the globe from Xelloss with some reluctance. In a few moments, all of Gustavo's wounds close, and he rises unsteadily to his feet.
Gustavo (unhappily): So tell me, Xelloss, what are you really doing here? I don't buy your "concerned father" act for a minute, given how you pretty much abandoned me for most of my life?
Xelloss (scratches his cheek): Well...being around Irene-chan got me to rethink that whole heartless bastard thing, and since I was heading this way on an errand for Miss Warner anyway... (shrugs) So why not? ^_^
Gustavo (incredulous, muttering): Who isn't one of Warner's minions?
Xelloss (stage whisper): Actually, I'm mostly just spying on Miss Warner for L-sama, but we've agreed to pretend that I'm "helping" her.
At the mention of the Lord of Nightmares, Gustavo looks at Xelloss with profound shock, but Xelloss just smiles back in his usual irritating manner.
Xelloss (loudly now): Anyway, I'm just hear to drop off a message from Miss Warner - "My Minions have gone Vocal-hunting. If you wish to join us, look for the explosions." (regular voice) There, that should do it.
Gustavo (puzzled): Do what?
Xelloss: That is a secret, my dear Zoey-chan. ^_^
Gustavo (somewhat peeved): Will you stop calling me that?
Xelloss: Of course not. I'm your father. It's my job to embarrass you in public. ^_^
Another dangling plot loop closed, at least for now. *ominous laughter*

|What about this? (Quoted from Here)|
"To really twist things around, here's a story that would be physically possible (albeit pretty far-fetched) if time travel was possible: A girl is left at an orphanage as a infant. When she becomes a teenager, she meets a man who gets her pregnant and then runs off, stealing their newborn baby girl. The woman later realizes that she's a man trapped in a woman's body and gets a sex change operation. Several years later, the man (or the man who used to be a woman) gets the opportunity to travel back in time. There he meets a teenage girl (who looks vaguely familiar), and gets her pregnant with a baby girl. After he realizes that he's in fact the teenage girl, he kidnaps the baby, travels back in time some more and drops it off at the local orphanage. The baby is then the mother and father of itself."
...I believe it paraphrases an Asimov short story that I forget the name of. But with time travel, any paradox is possible! Especially considering that with a mazoku, the sex change wouldn't even be necessary. >D
