Demon Name: Demon of Stupidity

Demon Power: Does things so stupid no amount of facepalm photos can express just how stupid it is. Not even the facepalm photo collages.

Heavenly Nemesis: Logic/Common Sense

Example of its influences in my life: I bought Civilization 5 from the store. And when I try to install it, it defaults to downloading the entire game off of Steam. Upon further inspection, it seems the game isn't on the disk. No, the game isn't on the god damn game disk. I bought the retail copy specifically because I didn't want to download it, since downloading it would take days. Whoever is responsible for this is easily the Demon of Stupidity, and should be mauled by a bear.

Simple Edit: It appears I was, well wrong. When I looked on the files to the disk I opened the "resources" folder only on mistake. It seems the game is indeed on the disk. However it still defaulted to downloading the game instead of installing it from the disk, which is still very, very, very stupid.

Demon name: Demon of immaturity
Demon power: Making you laugh at immature things.
Heavenly nemesis: Angel of maturity (Duh)
Example of its influence in your life: I giggle at the word penis. Heehee.

Demon power: Easily worms its way into even the most frigid and indifferent of hearts.
Heavenly nemesis: Angel of Honesty
Example of its influence in your life: I can get dozens of girls to send me racy pictures of themselves, yet I can't get laid in real life. Why I was cursed with this affliction is anyones guess, but whoever done it was a troll and should be banhammered for it.

Example of its influence in your life: He inhabits my body

Demon name: Phillip Demon of Awkwardness

Heavenly nemesis: Angel of Knowing When To Keep Your Damned Mouth Shut.
Example of its influence in your life: "Oh, sorry, I guess this was a bad time to tell you that I got you a this scythe for Halloween, y'know, what with your grandmother just having died 'n all. I'm sorry." That is essentially a description of my life, except usually I would be arriving dressed as the Grim Reaper and asking where their grandmother is just after they got back from the hospital in floods of tears, not having told anyone yet.

Demon name: Demon of Warcraft

Demon power: The power to make me do endless tasks for tiny rewards.

Heavenly Nemesis: The Angle of Yahtzee, telling me that playing it is like a second job.

Demon Name: Ver, the demoness of your conscience
Demon power: the ability to make you regret everything you've done, and remind you of it constantly, as well as making you go through it in your head.
Heavenly Nemesis: The Angel of Letting Go
Example of that influence: remember when you screwed up with that person you like? And all you could think about was how you could have done things, what could have been? And no matter what, you couldn't stop thinking about it? And at the same time, you were thinking about how you accidentally killed your pet fish, got kicked out of a class, were bullied by someone, and so on and so forth. Yeah, that's her fault.

This is my personal demon. Please make her go away.

Okay, I got this.

Demon Name: Demon of the Handhelds

Demon Powers: Can cause you to play Pokemon all night by making Legendaries immune to every Pokeball known to man, get you addicted to tetris on the gameboy, suck you into an RPG that you just can't put down. Its most powerful ability is the power to make your batteries last all night but not long enough for you to save so you lose all progress.

Heavenly Nemisis: The angel of the other room. By moving the handheld to a different room and invoking the inner sloth of the subject, she saves the mortal and grants him/her a good nights sleep.

Many other all nighters have since been caused by this demon, making me late for school, work, anything. Saps my strength during the day and summons me to bed with the handheld at night. Please help me!

Heavenly nemesis: Muses of Inspiration. They make people DO THINGS WELL.
Example of its influence in your life: I'm the only one who ACTS when I'm in a supposed acting group. When your nephew just got shanked in the streets, "*grumble**mumble**groan*" is a pretty pathetic response! Then again, I am ALSO somewhat afflicted, as all my roles speak in a very BOMBASTIC WAY.

Name: The demon of apathy
Power: When you begin something, she waits for that moment when your initial drive starts to falter, and you realise the scale of your task, and how much work it's going to take to complete. That's when she leans over your shoulder, and whispers in your ear: "My, that looks tiring. Let's be honest, now - how much do you really care? Will it make that much of a difference whether you do it or not? It's fine if you forget about it, you know. Nobody would blame you. Wouldn't it be easier to simply... Let it be?"
Nemesis: The angel of perseverance
Example: The innumerable posts on the Escapist that I've began to write, and then thought, "Eh, whatever, it doesn't really matter." And closed the tab, and moved on...

Nemesis: An arsehole. Seriously, who else but an arse would want to get rid of abnormality?
Example: Mental logic jumps. I hear something, make a few mental relations until I'm at a random internet quote, or a song, or a theory, then I say said 'end result' out loud. Most of the time the 'end result' is seemingly unrelated.
