Dangeresque 4: Part 4"This is it?" Dangeresque Too seemed dubious as the pair of private eyes stepped through the simple entrance to the mines, the classic hole-in-the-hill adorned with a shoddy wooden frame.Dangeresque 4: Part 44 years ago in Humor More Like This
"Man, we haven't even gotten too far yet," Dangeresque kept a cool stride, even as the downward slope grew sharper and added weight to his steps. "The impressive part of any mine is what's deep down inside."
"True," he shrugged, slipping off his glasses. "I don't think we'll need the shades."
"Oh, no, trust me," Dangeresque shook his head, not bothering with his own. "You'll need them."
"Big D, it's under ground !"
Dangeresque Too trailed off, forced to squint as his steps faltered to a halt beside his smug-looking partner.
The entrance corridor they had traversed opened up into a massive cavern, descending down into four levels of plank walkways filled with bustling miners. At least, four was what was visible from the top cliff they were standing on. An intricate system of tracks cris

"I wish I could say you misheard that. Unfortunately, you did not.
"When Gabriel had approached me about his imagined self-insert into the Dangeresque universe, I was under the impression that he had been pulling details of this character out of his ass, right there in front of me. It sounded like that, considering his delivery.
"I later informed him that the pitch had been green-lighted by Strong Bad, and I was proven wrong. He presented me with fully flushed out designs, costumes, props, and a developed back story. Whether it will ever be utilized is still up for debate, but I'll admit I was impressed by the sheer degree of forethought put into (ahem) Gaberesque.
"Also, Strong Bad finds the parody less than amusing, so that's a major plus. I let him keep the Nunchuck-gun in exchange.
"I'll admit that I was a tad less creative in my own self-insert's name, but most of my mental energy went towards h
Dangeresque 4: Part 6The Office was abandoned for most of the afternoon, until a lethargic jumbling of keys signaled one of its regulars had returned. Dangeresque Too listlessly pushed the door open, shaking his still wet boots a bit before throwing his thoroughly soaked newspaper in the waste bin with a squishy plop.Dangeresque 4: Part 64 years ago in Humor More Like This
Another rumble briefly brought his gaze up to the window and he glared at the pane getting assaulted by thick, heavy raindrops.
Sighing, he fished for his cellphone once he had determined the office was empty. A bit slowly, he texted a simple message.
Back @ Office. Didn't find nything. Where r u?
To be honest, he was half-glad Dangeresque wasn't around to rub this in his face. He was really hoping to get their Perducci investigation a step further along, but all he got was the mayor's wife blubbering all over him for two hours. He wouldn't have been half as wet without that mess, surely.
Still he glanced around again, worried. He said the personal business wouldn't take long, ri

Dangeresque Too was at the windowsill, gazing out into the city. "Looks like rain's coming."
"Uh-huh." Dangeresque was lounging at his desk, inspecting each of his gems one by one by the fading light of the ceiling lamp. " how do they do it?"
His partner looked up. "What?"
"Make stuff invisible." He squinted, examining his current piece much more closely. "I mean, I can kinda see through it "
"Probably has to do with the properties of their chemicals or whatever, mixed with other compounds," Dangeresque Too shrugged, gaining a weird look. "What? It's basic high-school chemistry, man."
Dangeresque continued staring at him, then shook his head. "Nerd."
The clunk of the mail slot in the door interrupted a would-be insult-fest, and a series of papers hit the floor.
"Mail's here," Dangeresque Too announced, and since he was up, he went ahead and fetched it. He quickly sifted through each letter, each addressed to Dangeresque, since it wa

"I gotta say, this wasn't the WORST idea ever. I think I might have been a bit 'under the influence' when I agreed to co-write Dangeresque 4 with ungh, Tycho. He put me under a spell and convinced me I SWEAR.
"But, whatever. The former cast? Yeah, they seemed pretty excited. Most of them, anyways. But, technically, they're still under contract, so they had no choice but to follow me into this other dimension for filming. Oh, fine print, where would society be without you?
"Oh yeah. This other dimension? MAN, it's weird. Y'know, to have actual fingers and hair and three-dimensional shape and form. Nothing that doesn't take getting used to, though. It was hilarious to watch Homestar mess around with his new arms. And earn a slap in the face from Marzipan when he well, you know. Conducted a 'melon inspection.' Aw man, that was great.

" really? I mean, seriously? Does no one on this fucking set know how to fake-punch?
"Well, sure, it was funny the first time, but Christ, Strong Bad was barely able to remember what he was supposed to be DOING after the beatdown in the script. Then he started giggling about 'Rhino Feeder' or something, and we had to stop shooting for the day.
"I guess it's karmic justice. Directors being evil and all that. Or was that producers? I forgot.
"I just hope to God Homestar doesn't clean MY clock with this upcoming scene either. [flipping through the script] ...shit. [gets up, hollers offscreen] Does he NEED the crowbar? I mean REALLY need it?! Come ooooon~!"
Dangeresque Too spread the schematics of the Brainblow Penitentiary building across the desk, with rough notes and arrows scrawled in red pen. He reviewed his plan, rubbing his face in an exhausted fluster.
"Break into the north wing by way of the roof... crawl through the venti

"Sweet genius, the frickin' gall of those two--!" Meanwhile, Dangeresque was progressing through the healthy release of his rage, by flinging anything he could lift. Thankfully, their office had little objects that qualified, so he quickly had to revert to angry pacing. "I mean 'Reign of Anarchy!?' Who do those ignorant bluebloods think they are!?! I've been this city'snay, the world'sgo-to guy for delivering sweet, ice-cold, soft-serve justice!!"
That was an opportune time for a witty jab at his choice of words, but Dangeresque Too didn't stir. He was, once again, laid across the couch, apparently deep in thought. His partner's ranting was going in one ear and out the other.
"and so what if Dangeresque doesn't follow the law!? When has 'following the law' ever made the ladies smile?
Dangeresque 4: PrologueAnother Saturday night, another ten thousand dollars down the drain. And worse yet, the game machine was out for repairs.Dangeresque 4: Prologue4 years ago in Humor More Like This
Defeated and drained, Strong Bad heaved himself up onto a barstool, muttering a demand for a Cold One to the bartender. An ID was requested, and he begrudgingly produced it before settling his head in his folded, gloved arms.
Freaking game companies and their tendencies for exploitation. He didn't even like poker all that much. He missed the olden days, when he had creative freedom and decided his own freaking destiny without some nerd in front of a television pointing and clicking away. Those were good times.
Behind him, he heard a deep, familiar growl of frustration, followed by a slam on the table and a few obscene words. He couldn't help a smirk; sounded like the dork had busted out too. The satisfaction staved off his own moodiness, if only briefly.
A clink in front of him signified the arrival of his much-needed Cold One. He lingered a moment in his cur
