Okay, here's how I see it... compromise-wise and such, for those of you who are new/confused.
Goth, DL, and ...other people I don't know well enough to remember yet (hi) just crashed the car, killed the rat, and then Goth brought it back to life with a Necronominominomicon so that conflict is resolved quite nicely and Zelldoom can go forth with whatever his plans are. So that means that Chrisseh, Treforce's characters, Zelldoom, Psycho, and that Salt chick are all in the hole and once again confronted with the mutant mouse/rat things.
Meanwhile, the fat nerd did not explode upon seeing a popular anime culture icon (Well, not in the way DL put it at least LOL), but he has "Magical" Millie in his clutches, and Silver is going all battle mode to try and fight him while an idle McJesus I assume is looking on, reflecting thoughtfully.
So, if you're new to the story, there are two valid routes you can take- In the hole or out of the hole. Does that seem fair enough?
