I love the Winnie the Pooh newspaper comics. Everyone’s such a dick to eachother, it’s so out of character. Is it simply called “Winnie the Pooh”? I never bothered to read the title, I just call it “It’s Always Sunny in the Hundred Acre Woods”
Gil had fought Zeetha for the crowd’s enjoyment, and it went off the rails in
the best way possible. Everyone was entertained so…yep! They have a crowd to
serve as witness once they get to the Castle. So let’s get going!
towards the Castle, shouting about he’s just an entertainer, and managing to
creep out his jolly gang of partners by smiling widely and generally behaving
like no one expects him to behave. He’s into his role, that’s for sure. Once
Gil gets to the entrance he proclaims his name and is immediately denied
entrance, which Gil takes as his cue to unleash his rage. Maybe Theo can
provide backup by shooting runcibles around while Sleipnir improvises with the
fire throwing bagpipes, if anything to add chaos and give the crowd an
incentive to spread the word even further.
attacks don’t go unnoticed. Agatha and Tarvek hear it all from deep into the
Castle, it’s lightning hitting the walls, after all. They hurry to take a look
– Tarvek sure knows a lot about the layout of the Castle! – and find who’s
doing it. Gil! Nobody seems very happy about it, since Tarvek may see Gil
represents a hindrance to any plan no matter what it is, and Agatha…well he’s
hitting her house with freaking lightning, who’d be happy about that. “Stop
hitting my house, kids!” she shouts.
But it was
an effective strategy, that’s for sure. These antics managed to catch the
crowd’s attention and freak the guards out, who are still in disbelief about
Gil being who he says he is. It shouldn’t be too difficult to prove he really
is Gil, he has the same lightning rod and techniques he used against the battle
I love this
webcomic. Good thing Higgs stuck around and carried the hat, eh, Gil? But yes,
this should be all they need to assert Gil’s identity. All that remains is for
him to enter the Castle, and that’ll deter the Baron from doing anything that
could endanger his son. I wonder if this can lead to Wulfenbach entering the
Castle too, to try to retrieve Gil. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if he does,
even if his grievous wounds still ache.
