I think I can safely say that getting Court of Roses for this Crossover Exchange was the best thing that could have happened for this story, as it actually allowed me to provide an effective denouement to the battle in the cave; and the overwhelming power of the cosmic horror 'Chuckthulu'. Remember how I said I'd come up with the idea for this story before the exchange started? Well, that only extended as far as the general outline and opening salvo of the tale - it was easy enough to come up with all that without knowing exactly who was going to feature in it; but once I'd received my assigned comic, I really had to think of an ending that effectively involved both the Cosmos and CoR casts, and wasn't a cop-out. But what to do? I ran through quite a few random ideas as I wrote the story - Professor Pod unsuccessfully blasting Chuckthulu with Science Lazers, Genezilla showing up from, well, somewhere - but all I could think of to follow up with was 'Oh, yeh, let's just call in the lawyers'.... at which point the bad guys freak out, surrender, aaaand.... the end. Weak, right? But then a further burst of research into CoR showed me that the bold balladeers were not just musicians - they were MAGIC-WIELDING musicians. And they were currently in an environment saturated with eldritch sorcery! There was my solution! The CoR cast could save the day in a way that the Cosmos gang simply couldn't: not with punching, not with snarky quips or deus ex machinas, but by banding together and using their magico-musical talents to provide a truly unique solution.... that I seriously doubt I could have landed on if Merlot and co. had had any other occupation. So thanks, guys....
