Well, I checked the first comic again. The best face shot is in the last panel, but he's in a pretty awkward pose, and the speech bubbles will get in the way if we crop them (if we don't, they will be useless without context). I chose the first panel because it's self-sufficient and pretty funny by itself.

On a side note, Poirot's pic makes my OCD conflict itself: It's 256 pixels wide, when I stuck to 250, but uploading a whole new pic and cluttering TV Tropes' server is even worse. :?
Also, I hope we'll get another Poirot's comic, because a mask shot is not the best pic, even though it's the only one we have.

Sorry.

I'll make it a bit smalller.

If it's the same, or worse, then I'll make it even smaller.

Go to offtopic and the character tropes thread.

Well, it sucks that he's wearing a mask, but it's the best we have so far.

Now, on the latest events. Do you think Quixote's storyline can be classified as Plot Tumor?

Well, at the moment, it's only encapsulated Holmes' tale. If it continues to grow, then I say yes.
Apparently, slightly less weird than most of you.

It's possible, but I'm not sure if he's making a lockpick from whatever he had on hand, or assembling some device made for this purpose. In the latter case, it doesn't work.

That device is a Lockpick gun. I was at a Gun Show last week, so I know what it was.

Still doesn't answer the question. If he carried the parts for the Rake Gun (yep, I googled it) intentionally, that doesn't count as MacGuyvering.

Ok, where do I add this info about the Plague Doctors?

Shouldn't we add the minor characters to the list?

Well, other than Cinderella, we had NO plotline/interaction with them, so there should be no tropes to list. So maybe not?
Why are we even arguing about a dead fictional dude and hypothetical ninjas?

That A-fsghjkds guy we did. And if Medusa is in the list... Also, Cinderella is in, so I think the others should be so, because they just SPOKE more about Cindy. BTW, I added something in Qara's character page

Cinderella we had some plot with; she interacted with Holmes.
Medusa we had some plot with, in the form of Dil's story which got elevated to Canon.
I don't know what you mean by the A-whatever guy-- I don't see anything of that description on the char page.
But Dracula, Cerberus, etc. we have NOTHING on, just Word of God that they were here and now they're not. I don't think they're worth putting in.

We fought Medusa and that A-dasfdas guy from African oral tradition.
