Baker's Dozen

I just realized (shame on me) that we never have a proper comment thread for Argo's ongoing narrative "Baker's Dozen". Since we got a nice end of the year present in the form of Chapter 11, I believe it's due time to fix this terrible shortcoming.

Woohoo! Bobby's back! And another FIIIINE muffin just came out of the oven :D!

(Though I admit with a crowded frat party I thought this might be the time his aim was finally off. Still, Nicole's a born force for good, isn't she? I think Kenny will manage to cope adequately with some changes around his household...)

Looking forward to reading a future scene at the WWE event where Cindy and the girls may get to taunt the musclehead wrestlers in the ring after a ring stunt goes accidentally wrong, spilling into the audience ....a few scenarios running through my head with that one :)

Thanks for the props, guys.

AuGoose: Back when I was outlining the second half of the story, I did toy with the idea of having one of Bobby's wishes "misfire" -- by having his annoying younger sister inadvertently step into his line of sight just as he's about to use the card on another girl. But I eventually scrapped the idea. (Though I did write a dream episode in which a super-powered Amy makes Bobby's life miserable. It's in the Library as a "deleted scene.")

Although I haven't established this in the story, I've decided that in order for the card's magic to work, two conditions must be met: a direct visual "lock" on the target and intention on Bobby's part. So if another girl were to step into his line of sight while he's saying the magic words ... nothing would happen.

By the way, I've only just discovered the story you've been posting on the forum. Loving the bratty super-sister angle!

Monty: Bobby, Cindy, Darcy, and Kenny will be going to that WWE event in the next chapter. Things won't turn out exactly as you suggest, but it should be a fun night out for everyone!

GeekSeven: I'm fond of Nicole myself. Gotta love a girl who can chasten a roomful of frat boys, crush a beer keg in her bare hands, and rock a little black dress -- all at the same time. She'll return in Chapter 12, along with a few super-girls from the first half of the story.

I have on good authority that Argo and Ace are currently working on the Workshop entry so it's very likely that Baker's Dozen is currently on the back burner.

I must admit I find myself craving another muffin/bagel/carbohydrate-laden-delicious-baked-good from this batch :).

It's a simple premise that yields such a delightful array of flavors.

I pm'd Argo a few weeks back to share an idea about Baker's Dozen (didn't want to put the idea on here), but he's not replied.

Yeah, I've been inactive for a while. Two bouts of pneumonia since the summer (and I'd never had anything worse than a cold in my life). I'm fine now, but for a while I just didn't have the energy for writing.

Thanks for the prod, smokio. I know you're a fan of "Baker's Dozen," and appreciative readers like you are the spur that keeps me going. I've written most of the next two chapters, and I'll try to get them finished during a two-week vacation coming up in March.

Now if you'll excuse me -- I'm going to post something.

Yes! FINALLY lol. But seriously I am sad to know about your pneumonia. I hope that you're fine now. I know that I was annoyed (and annoying) sometime i apologise for that. Can't wait to see the next chapters!
