Holy shit! Congratulations!
Here's to the LOT of energy drinks you'll be chugging down! XD
How not to be a dark lord: the answer to that is a terribly interesting answer that involves an almost Jedi-like adherence to keeping oneself under control and finding ways to be true to yourself in a way that doesn't encourage the worst parts of you to become dangerously exaggerated and instead feeds your better nature. Also, protip: don't fuck with Alchemy or strike up any deals with ancient Japanese Shinigami gods no matter how tempting the deal or how suavely dressed the Shinigami is.

I think she'll pick up the series through osmosis. It'll just be ever-present growing up.

I've been staying up late holding her while catching up on Dragon Ball Super. That's pretty fun but the lack of sleep isn't. Baby girl has gas and cries out in the night if she's in her bassinet.

Hey, congrats!
It's like Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, but instead it's Who Wants Fried Chicken? I do.

Congrats, Freak!  That's awesome.  Is she on formula or breastfeeding?  Formula tends to help kiddos sleep through the night, because it fills them up longer than breastmilk.  And as hard as it is, getting up with your wife in the middle of the night is a great way to earn brownie points.  She'll appreciate not having to suffer through that alone.  :)

Do you feel comfortable sharing a photo of you and your little girl?

I slept in the bedroom the first 2 ½ or 3 weeks, but the exhaustion caught up to the missus and I to where we were getting frustrated with the baby, who can't help being a baby; so I started sleeping on the couch this week so that I can get some mostly unbroken sleep for the first part of the night, then I can wake up and be with baby so my wife can get some solid chunks of sleep. I don't know what I'm gonna do when I have to return to work next week. Might do more or less the same, just get ready for work early and spend time with the baby. Lack of sleep's just part of the whole parenting thing so I'd better get used to it.

If I get a good pic of us, I might share it. My phone is chock-full of pics of this little cutie.

The best part of letting her sleep in my arms at night/early morning is getting to marathon cartoons and not feel bad about it, and it also keeps my busy mind at bay because I can't get up and do the myriad other things I have on my mind, so maybe I'll stand a chance of finishing DB Super in a decent time frame instead of spreading it out for years/decades like I did DB and DBZ. :p

Belated congratulations to you Freak!

Welcome to the Dad club! It's the best. 😊

Sleep is overrated anyways. ☕

Up till recently I've been big on getting eight hours a night to function properly. I'm learning very quickly how few you really need to be energized.
