Title: bread for success - part 3
Date: March 13, 2007
Summary: The duo enter the castle only to find it soon besieged!
Number of panels: 6
[Our heroes have many encounters...]
There is a robot looking oddly similar to Emotibot, holding a heart. He has a funnel on his head.
[on their journey...]
There is an upright standing lion holding a jar with guts in it. In front of him is also a jar holding a spine.
Lion: "You know, I do feel a little braver..."
Beaver and Steve are nearing the Emerald Toaster, and the Toaster Creature is nearly at the door of it. There are Toaster Birds in the sky above the Emerald Toaster.
Steve points to the Toaster Creature.
Steve: "Come on Beaver, we've almost caught him!"
The view is now from inside the Emerald Toaster, which looks like a castle from inside. There are banners featuring four rectangles, two types. In the upper left and lower right are red rectangles with a tree on them. In the other corners are blue rectangles with toasters on them.
The Toaster Creature is bowing down, holding the bread slice forth, to what is likely the Toaster King, wearing a golden toaster on his head.
Toaster Creature: "My leige! The legends were true! I have found The Slice!"
Toaster King: "By the element! With this source of yeasty power in our hands the kingdom can finally flourish!"
Beaver: "Look Steve! Our simple slice of bread is bringing so much joy to these peaceful folk!"
A toastie maker tank CRASH!es through the wall. There is a green guy on the tank and a whole army of other green soldiers in the background. He has abruptness lines around his head. The days the throne was stood upon are gone, and the throne itself is smashed.
Green guy: "Surrender the Slice!"
The Toaster King has alarm lines above his crown.
Toaster King, holding the Slice: "Toastiemakerians! I should have expected this treachery! Guards!"
There is a sudden *BATTLE!* between the Toaster Folk and the Toastiemakerians, both sides equipped with tanks modelled after their respective kitchen appliances. Regular soldiers just have swords and shields. One of the two visible toastie maker tanks has two Toaster Folk soldiers smashed in it. One of them has their head sticking out, with shock lines pouring out of his head.
Beaver: "I'm sensing a little hostility here."
[To be contd.]
- Steve gives the Robot a heart. The Robot looks a lot like Emotibot.
- Steve gives the Lion a backbone and some guts.
- Panels 1 and 2 seem connected by that tree between them.
- Beaver and Steve took the right (or left, for that matter) path.
- The Toaster Folk's king wears a golden toaster on his head.
- Emotibot's misunderstanding of emotions is represented in the Emotibot-looking-like Robot.
- The Robot and the Lion resemble the Tin Man and the... well, Lion, from The Wizard of Oz.
