Author's note: This was written for the E/O Challenge. I had to cut away a lot, as usual, and it hurt, as usual… The challenge was to use the word "bake" and include brotherly interaction where it wouldn't be clear who was who. You be the judge.

Word count: 100 (threw away half the batch but…)

Warnings: Spoilers for season 4.

Disclaimer: Not mine but I remain stoic.

Rolling pin?

Right. The Gingerbread Man… coughing up dough…ahah…ow!

"Heeeere we go…"

His brother… wasn't in hell. Back….

"Little further…"

He'd… been baked in the Big Oven….

"Another step…"

…like, those ancient things… golems. Yeah, he'd become a golem. Indefatigable. Incommunicative. Indestructible? And… you could change their nature by… opening their skulls, placing words inside… Of course! Warn him! Take them out immediately

"…gollum…"

"Er, no… but we'll visit a sort-of-greyish wizard. Bobby, remember?"

…incomprehensible…must be his brother…
