    Default Girl Genius XI: Ding Dong, the Baron's Dead!

    Previously on Girl Genius:

    Baron Oublenmach learned that sometimes it is better to simply ask for something than trying to steal it. Gil and Tarvek gave advice on how to tame animals to Violetta. Baron Wulfenbach, according to rumors at least, has gone to ground to get away from it all. And Professor Tiktoffen has revealed that his crush on the Castle went a wee bit further than many people suspected.

    *checks*

    Yep. Still in the Castle.

    I originally took inspiration from the DD threads.

    Probably should start pruning it a bit, though. Or maybe put more of them behind spoiler bars to keep the clutter away. If I create the next thread, maybe I'll tidy it up a bit. Or perhaps when I get the chance, clean up the first post of this thread some more.

    At least they're orginized into discrete chunks now. Once it was just a big wall o'links. And that wasn't pretty at all.

    I object to the name of this thread. You guys really think the Baron is dead? Y'all aren't as genre savvy as I thought.

    I don't know. It could have been an interesting storyline. Tik versus Aga fighting over Der Kestle. Tik's brains versus Aga's brawn. Oh well.

    As the thread namer, I would like to point out that I don't think the Baron is dead for a second (never found the body and all that).

    But the proposed title amused me, lots of other people seemed to like it, and there was no time to suggest a better one. And so it was thrust upon the world.

    No-one thinks he's dead. We just like the title, and hopefully the Doom Bell will be ringing soon.

    But he is dead. We saw him get thrown out of the pink airship a long time ago to reduce weight and escape the Torchmen.

    Er. I guess he was a Duke. Never mind.

    I don't think anyone would want those pancakes even if you paid them to eat them.

    (How is it wordplay exactly ? it's a variation on "ding dong the witch is dead" but is there a pun that escape me ? Or does wordplay not mean what I think it means ?)
    Also, speaking of thread's title, Othar still hasn't shown thusmaking the rpevious title thread humourously false.)

    Anyway, Tik has the good taste of being dealt with fast and will probably soon join Merlot in squish land.

    I meant wordplay as in changing Wicked Witch to Baron. No puns that I know of.

    The OP needs an addition; Something along the lines of the Othar shoe still hasn't dropped yet. (Since Othar is still nowhere to be found)

    I would laugh if Othar made an entrance with his shoe falling off his foot....

    Not likely going to happen, but would be funny.

    You might say he's feeling rather depressed at the Castle rejecting him.

    He shouldn't be surprised that he was overshadowed by the skills of the Heterodynes.

    Pound for pound, I doubt he's ever been laid low quite like this.

    I'm sure he wasn't hurt that seriously. It was just a slab, not a sparkly death-machine or something. He will hack himself into the Hetrodyne cloud and rise again stronger than ever as the Kitchen-Chef

    OK, now. Where are the others? (I'm thinking of Gil, Tarvek and Violetta, not the other Others, i.e. "Anevka" and Zola.)
    Guess what spell I cast before posting this message.
