Oooooooooooh!



I'm really hoping this is like Naruto, where the next panel has Hindo saying, "wait, substitution jutsu?!" and you see that the body is just made up of a log.

Then the real Rob comes out of nowhere and continues the fight.

I'm really hoping that's the case. :ohdear:

This plus the fact that it's been long theorized that Rob's lack of ears would help him against the Troll King's words of death, plus the apparent importance of the other Dragonborn give me hope that he's still alive somehow.

Speaking of the other Dragonborn, I was rereading Chapter 5, and observed something interesting.

If Rob is really dead, this is some really well-executed dark humor. LB set up a bunch of expectations for Rob, put a lot into the character, knew he was a fan favorite, and just blew him up in like 3 panels.


I'm still hoping it's not a "real" death though.

Hindo has repeatedly noted that Rob was pretty weak.

Well, Tails Gets Trolled's decided to sink ships and kill Rob, it seems. Interest completely hit rock bottom. Thanks, Lazerbot!
Oh good, generic straight electrocution death #2,405,120. Yawn. No Rob/Emler End, no reading. Emler's the least interesting male since Chiba Mamoru.
And to Lazerbot: gently caress you for not taking a god drat chance, you cowardly loving bitch. "Nope. Rob has to die!" gently caress you.
Remember the lesson Tails Gets Trolled teaches us: Don't be a Dragonborn/deaf, otherwise your peers won't like you. #TailsGetsTrolled #fuckingasshole #badendconfirmed
Now I definitely need to get to work on writing a guide because otherwise the urge to strange that cowardly little prick won't go away.
Yeah, can't do it. Hey @tailsgetstrolled - good job sinking ships and ruining the comic, you weak god drat writer.
@tailsgetstrolled Can't have the main characters be dragonborn/deaf, right? That's for the designated 'dead' characters, huh? gently caress you, you prick.
@tailsgetstrolled No, really, it's nice of you to have a 'please stop reading now' arc. Real considerate of you.
@tailsgetstrolled - proving that making a dragonborn/deaf character the lead isn't worth the trouble. You're really breakin' down barriers there, Lazerbot.
Hey kids: If you're deaf, you should be electrocuted. You must be straight. Remember the lessons that @lazerbot taught us.
loving makes me sick. Great, one more generic hearie romance with a bland hearing lead. Good job @lazerbot you loving coward.

I'm not buying it. I'm expecting all of his bits to fly back together. Or maybe it's a hallucination. Or maybe necromancer Elmer will make an suit of armor made of Rob and they will fuse together to make Elmerob. Or maybe.. maybe... he just can't be dead, guys. :negative:

Ooh. Foreshadowing again from LazyB. And subtle too. I too almost thought for a second there that he'd be a challenge to Hindo. This unabashed brutalism in the treatment of characters - Original Characters no less - leaves me in respectful awe.

Without the foreshadowing this would feel like sucker-punching the fan favourite with the Power of the Pen, but it actually works. That is, if this wasn't a deception by Rob. I just don't know. I want him to be alive but if he's really dead then woah, what a way to do it.

Probably the greatest page of this great comic yet. I'm personally hoping there is no fake-out; this one is incredible. All this build up for such an anti-climatic battle. Really puts Hindo over as Dude You Do Not gently caress With. I'm suddenly way more concerned about the good guys' survival than I was before.
