King of the Hill

Everything else, basically.

The Marquis stands at the bottom of he hill, holding a single red rose. He catches the attention of the fair Sara Farr, and delivers an eloquently worded poem which centers on the beauty of not only puppets, but the puppeteers who give them life. As it continues, it lauds all the excellent qualities which make Sara special not only to the AIC, but to mankind as well, and it explains why the world would be a darker and more somber place without her and her multitude of talents.

He completes the poem, rolls it up and ties the scroll with a rosewater- scented hanky. He drops to one knee and places the poem and the rose upon the ground.....

And, when Sara comes down to get her poem, he swings to the top of the hill using a conveniently placed silk swinging rope and claims the mountain for the Marquis.

"This green mound of earth, this epic hill, now belongs to the Hideout Marquis! Huzzah!"

(and somewhere in Minneapolis: Jordan, filming his project, feels a mysterious stab in his right arm....)

turns out the whole Minnesota "documentary" was actually a smoke screen for Edgar Wright's Ant-Man movie, and they've decided to cast me as Hank Pym. the film opens early summer of 2014 and is instantly a box office smash. i sign on to reprise the role in the Avengers sequel with Joss Whedon. the Hollywood Reporter, desperately seeking a witty headline, declares me "King of the (Ant) Hill". i bring a copy of the paper back to Austin, where the sage legal minds of the AIC (read: Kristin) declare it a binding declaration and all rights to the hill are ceded to me. the Marquis remains on as my butler.

EXCELSIOR!

Great game everyone!

I shake hands with all of you, get in my time machine, and travel back to the very moment Sara Farr is describing the hill she's about to become queen of.

...

The time travel causes a cosmic distortion that creates an alternate reality in which I take the hill.

This "other" hill is pink with sparkle flowers.

AND I AM QUEEN OF OTHER-HILL!!!

*pays for a plane to fly overhead pulling a banner reading "Twilight sucks and if you like the books you suck too." then waits for Sarah Marie to chase after the plane while tossing rocks at it and cursing incoherently. *

*Walks up the hill and surveys all that the light touches*

I heard that once, the Marquis defended The Hill against a hundred English footsoldiers while armed with only a feather quill and a book of scandalous love-poems. #legendsofthemarquis

unbeknownst to Jill, Peter is secretly in my employ and within moments of her victory, he gently and gingerly shoves her over the side. flowers spring up in her wake. he then hands the reins of kingship over to me. why doesn't he just claim it for himself? because...

PETER ROGERS JUST DON'T GIVE A FUCK! WHAT!

king of the hill, y'all...2012...

I cast Ryan in a show. He immediately breaks his leg. I graciously offer to take over his kingly duties while he recuperates.

PRINCE REGENT OF THE HILL!


Based on past experience, that is exactly what happens when you cast me in a show...

Battleground gets renewed for a second, third, and fourth season. The Jordan T. Mosely spin-off, "Jordan," gets greenlit for a pilot. A private helicopter plucks Jordan off the hill and takes him to fame and fortune.

I've constructed a town, just to the north of the hill, out of Lego.

I'm just missing one piece. It's a pretty rare brick, I don't suppose anyone has one. Probably not. Oh well...

...

As Kevin snaps the brick into place, he realizes that he has completed construction of his own jail cell. I take his place atop the hill.

*As night falls, and a full moon rises, the top of the hill opens and a plethora of Faeries emerge, calling Brad into their world of Fae. Entranced by their beauty and song, he can't resist and follows them down into the hill. By morning the hill is dew swept and empty.*

I dash up the hill and shout, "Queen of the Hill!"

As Sara surveys her land she notices a small parade of <uppetts lead by Frank Oz singing, "Moving Right Along." Sara can't help but step in line and start singing and marching... Soy El Rey Del Monte!!!
