==Initial Post==

(Posted by Doctor Obolensky on April 1, 2010 at 11:23pm)

It has been an interesting day, I will say that.

Miss Heinrichs escape was perhaps fortuitous. A proper death trap is the measure of the worth of an adversary, and she did not die….although, neither did she escape on her own. Perhaps the fellow who did might be suitable.

NOTE: Determine if Mr. Mannonen is capable of a proper protagonist monologue.

This possibly good news was overshadowed by awakening to discover that my bedsheets were aflame. Also, the conference table, the bookshelves (Including many irreplaceable works!), yes, all of the furniture, and some of the flooring were all burning merrily.

NOTE: Oil storage would probably best not undertaken directly beneath ones domicile.

I attempted to make my way to the chemical workbench, having just recently discovered a liquid, that when misted in the area of a blaze, would extinguish it completely (This was a side effect of adding that puree of rendered martian to the formula described on the 12th of the previous month).

As I reached for the flask, two quite irksome things occured. First, a paniced laboratory mouse (I believe it to be subject B-A4T) leapt upon my nightshirt. Secondly, the entire chemical stores on and around the bench exploded violently.

I was not upset by this immediately, as the blast knocked me quite senseless.

Several hours later, I awoke in a corner, singed, but more or less intact. At this point, I became upset…perhaps more so than usual, due to the delay. For not only had the interior of the observatory been gutted, but some mixture of the chemicals, and the presence of B-A4T had some sort of transmogrification effect on me, as evidenced by the attached portraiture, which I took with a primitive image capture device I rigged from the debris.

There are uses to this new form, of course…..I suspect I’ll be able to fit many more floors into the observatory, since they all need not be more than four feet high. Fine gearing work is far easier with these tiny paws.

However, my appearance is a problem. My normal, manly self strikes fear into the populace, while this form seems to cause the locals to burst out into cooing babytalk like “Ooooo…who’s a cutsie-wutsie-mousie?”. While I’m sure this could be turned to my advantage, I’m afraid the effect on my reputation means I must seek a cure as soon as possible. Perhaps that extract of Deep Squid ink would be of use….

More tomorrow.

Heh. Here, mouse. Heeeeeere, mouse! *feral grin*

Cure yourself soon Doctor, or I will lose what respect I still have. With a total loss of respect I will have no choice but to release a herd of feral cats on your isle. Villainy must be feared and obeyed, not…cuddled. *Look of disdain*

Well, at least I was more formidable than last summer, right?




By the way, cute can be evil. Like Sir Pounce from the webcomic ‘Narbonic.’))

How can so much evil fit into such a small package? Actually though I think this makes you more evil cause no one suspects the cute to be evil.

*Reply by Scarlet Jaggernov on April 2, 2010 at 8:37am
Cute can be evil, you know. You have to work so much harder to be evil if you look adorable, so think of it as a bit of villainous exercise!

((And be nice to Michael or I’ll be putting mousetraps absolutely everywhere!))

Yaaaaay <3

Well, if worse comes to worse you can strip and become almost totally undetectable.

. . provided that this doesn’t suddenly wear off, that is.

That could be awkward.

Well I think a mouse with a stache would be something easily spotted… possibly.

Well, c’mon, this is New Babbage! It could happen!

And what a cuddly-wuddly villain he’d be too, if it did!

Oh, waaaaaiiiit…. O.O

What can one say? It is fitting that a “rat” who would try to kill our beloved Miss Hienrichs would be changed into such a shape. Father will be so pleased when I tell him.

Doctor Obolensky points at the date of the original post…again.
