Very funny Story. Thanks

I very much liked how you wrote DG and Cain's relationship in this three-parter. Fonteroy is a great instigator of events.

Rereading dastardly and I have to say BFF is really growing on me. He is such a sweet idiot. Almost like a daft puppy, definitely not smart enough to be a baby mobat. Tangent- what would you call a baby mobat? a pup like a bat or infant like a monkey or a pant, inpup, pupant, a pufant, a mobatling, a moblet maybe? Gulch would say adorable; maybe you should call it an Elmer, or maybe even a gluey (combo of elmer and old gulchy) seeing how some animal baby names seem to be obscure. I have issues

This is outstanding. I love DG's insistence that Cain cannot be gay. Glitch's lecture about drinking was wonderful too.

I would just like to say that Lord Fonteroy is by far my favourite Tin Man OC. I love how him being there always Cain to be exactly as he is. Also your style of writing is hilarious. :D

So much love for this, no offense to slash lovers out there but NO NO NO NO to Cain/Glitch. Ever. Ew.

"for the greater good, strangers, and puppies."
puppies seem to be some sort of universal code, kill puppies and you're a monster
"However, since that sounded somewhat like intelligence and he couldn't really recall ever listening to that he decided to carry on. Drunk is not a time to be trying new things."
oh, so cute, and... drunk... like pregnant isn't a time to try new things, oh, no, mental image
"The Great Verbosity's billionth rendition of the door sign and switched him to a new channel."
oh, you're really using Glitch here, he is like Cat in Red Dwarf, always hilarious, never much screen time
"His fear was perfectly justified, however, and therefore not a psychological condition."
don't mess with the Cain, laughing so hard right now
"The Tin Man blinked. So did the young lord, he was pretty sure that wasn't supposed to be the opening line."
the mouth faster than the brain. and coupled with your hilarious drunk dialogue... gold, just gold
"Not dat you haf breasts. Whish is good 'cause dat be kinda freakish no' to menshion dishtactin' an' I'ma tryin' ta haf a sherious convershasion 'ere."
oh god, please give me air again, my sides hurt
"Fortunately for all present, the princess had opted to retain her clothes, that or she couldn't figure out how to get them off, either was possible."
it's your blunt humour that gaets me everytime
"a bullet through the offending limb educated him as to the error of his ways."
wow, this is the first time he really used Mr. Revolver, so he's not just all empty threats... I mean empty aura
"do I get to know what it is about my butt or the breasts I do not have, or do I not want to know?"
funnily enough... that is not only as romantic as it is funny it also touches upon a subject that every female notices when watching Tin Man
"no good deed something something"
end it with a crack-up

I continuously love Fonteroy more and more, he is so absolutely funny, especially with that mental image I have of him, mainly from "Little Lord Fauntleroy"
"It was a tribute to his various caretakers that he'd made out of childhood with any morals at all and it was no wonder that his learning anything required an act of the deities. Or a very pissed off Tin Man."
deities beware, there's someone doing your job, although, as implied by you in the Gulch story, Cain isn't a man... maybe he's a deity
"Then he had walked in on a meeting of the House of Lords, interrupting the Queen even, and laid down the law quite decisively regarding plots and Princess DG."
his word be the law indeed
"what the man needed, he decided suddenly, was to get laid."
another dastardly plot, hm? wow, his brain produces such wonderful things, such funny things, such abrupt and absurd things
"Fonteroy decided it meant what he thought it did and proceeded on with further thought."
I love these things, when he's being... mentally challenged
"He'd spent so long trying to convince the two sceptics that there was a mobat in the cellar that by this time he half believed it himself."
he makes the best liar, absolutely funny
"a convicted mobat locked them in the cellar"
convicted mobat? brains are fantastic
"Cain literally growled"
scary, but really... Cain and gay?
"Cain's flush of rage had turned to one of acute embarrassment."
DG will do that to you... funnily enough I was about to comment on what a loss that would be to the world of women on the last line but decided against it... when DG brings it up... wow
"From within the dark prison came a muffled scream."
that was actually really scary, I feel so sorry for him, no one deserves that, I want to go there and rescue the innocent little boy

"Lord Fonteroy was not the sharpest blade, or tack, or even wooden spoon."
I should probably stop this kind of reviewing but I can't help but point out the lines that make me laugh out loud, so much even that I'm afraid I'll wake up my little sister
"There was no scientific explanation, after all, for how a girl of her meagre body mass had once drank an entire hockey team under the table."
I can so imagine that scene, her setting the glass down, determined to get through at least six more when she sees the guys are all already lying on the floor
"the Tin Man could be delayed by nobles as he was not allowed to shoot them."
it's like the people in the old Nintendo game Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, if you know it
"That was her excuse for the first two drinks; the next two were toasted in the name of liberty and independence."
I love that about your DG, she's just so funny
""I wu' do it iffa yoo 'ould make it shtop movin'," one of the cronies replied."
your drunk people are hilarious, too, oh god
"Everyone knew you didn't drink and travel storm."
my thoughts are going the commercial route again, the travel storm for your entire family
"I sho' senna card. Deepisht re...re...regrets! Yeah, those!"
not the brightest crayon in the box indeed
"Fonteroy's admiration moved into full drunken hero worship."
one image: Fonteroy wearing Cain pijamas
"He found himself debating whether he disliked the fellow or admired him. His memories were somewhat confused."
juxtaposition is a key element of almost every good story
"Then Cain had reassembled his gun and loaded it."
not laughing, just shivering, because that is one intense picture (and I'm secretly proud)
"As a result he no sooner completed his lecture than he forgot he'd given it and started all over again."
the best torture methods are the ambitious

Oh Lord Fonteroy thou art so devious and dastardly.
| chibiaries chapter 3 . 10/18/2010
This one..this one...was just totally fantastic!
It was actually fantabulous.
All the plotting, the dastardly deeds, the drunk!DG (which was hilarious by the way) was so well-written.
And Cain was wonderfully in-character.
| forestofmyown chapter 3 . 8/12/2010
Fonteroy makes me happy. Sometimes I forget he's not cannon _ He just seems like the perfect buddy for DG, and even for Cain (in an 'I need a stupid sidekick' kinda way). These were brilliant and I wish there could be more. Can there be more? Please?
| Djibriel chapter 3 . 6/7/2010
Hi. Just de-lurking to say, I love Dastardly Plot, Otherside Encounter and The Courting of Officer Gulch, but I can't help hoping for more stories involving 'BFF' Fonteroy and Glitch. D Because I want to see those two get 'happy endings' too. Besides, the garter hit BFF while he was in the Tin Suit, so he's going to be married, anyway. I think. D

"Glitch and Ambrose were debating internally whether they'd been putting off the wrong signals."
I can just HEAR the internal conflict. "Did you..?" "NO! Did you...?" "NO!" "Well, where did she get THAT idea then?" "I don't know, did you say anything?" "I may be Glitchy but I'm not STUPID." "I'm not saying you're stupid, but are you gay?" "NO! Besides, you would be too, if I were!" "Don't count on it, Glitch-boy." "Brainiac." "Insufferable toad." "Waste of oxygen." "Brainless twit." "... Hi. I'm Glitch. Do I know you?" Ambrose *facepalm*
