    That awkward part of a first date when you both want to scratch your arses but won’t risk doing it obviously.

    “Who builds a castle out of graham crackers?”

    To paraphrase the Matt Smith Doctor – trap doors are cool.

    His attempt at courtship must have been so terribad that she fell asleep immediately and he’s getting removed from the stage post-haste… D:

    (Manacled Princess): “Lafayette, we are here! But unfortunately you’ll never get any closer than that trap door, nyah-ha-ha-ha!”

    (Lafayette): “Yeah, well, with that misshapen lump of clay that passes for a foot, who cares?”

    (Rowena): “Sniff-sniff, don’t be so mean, Lafayette, you know feet are hard to draw.”

  6. Ryan Says:

    “The Shape-Changer” is what they call the bottom of that chasm that the graham cracker trap doors are opening into.

    Which, to be fair, is probably pretty accurate, at least if that chasm is more than fifteen feet deep.

    So he’s changing shape because the floor’s falling out from under him, and then he’ll presumably change shape again (much flatter) when he hits the bottom of the pit. obligatory slide whistle and puff a la W.E. Coyote

    She might have her hands bound, but she can still reach the trap door button. Either that or the button is on the floor, which explains the weird foot position.

  8. Tor Mented Says:

    That’s the last time he’ll tell a woman to keep her trap shut.

  9. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Tor: GSS!

    Modeling for Rowena must have been entertaining…

    “Imagine that you’re languishing on top of a hard, uncomfortable medieval chair – and you’re shackled to it – but sort of more languishing than uncomfortable – while a klutz in front of you is dropping through a trap door. And don’t laugh!”
