And stop voting Ashcliff! D: He can't die, he's way to sweet :)

Sweet? You and I clearly have different ideas of what 'sweet' is.

And I voted Helena, because it would be easy to come up with a legitimate reason for her to leave or die, and she's not as vital to the plot as certain other characters.

I voted Spiky, not because she's been getting kinda bratty (which she has, but that's forgivable), but because the way this story has been going all along could just lead very naturally to a Dr. Horrible sort of bittersweet ending, where Vincent accidentally causes the death of a girl that's precious to him and thereby breaks the curse and gets everything he never dared hope for.

The ending could play out with Vincent struggling to come to terms with what he's lost and what he's gained, and trying not to hate himself every time the baron exclaims how proud he is to see his knight finally with sword in hand, and trying not to hate Roland and Helena and Stella when they try to convince him that this is a good thing because it means he's not going to die. The conflicting emotions and general angst would make it an ending appropriate to the comic's overall style.

Maybe there could even be an epilogue where Vincent is happily married and has a daughter with a very anime hairstyle. He'll call her Spiky. ^_^

I had a long hard think between Helena and Roland, because either of them dying could cause a /very/ interesting reaction from Vincent, decided Roland, then clicked Helena by accident.

Very true. I could create really bad conflict if Vincent would lift the curse by accidentally killing Spiky. He probably wouldn't fully forgive himself ever, but would still eventually be able to deal with the situation. And giving Spiky as a nickname to his daughter I can see him to do ;)

Now I'm sort of hoping and fearing this sort of end.

Vincent will live and yet the curse will be in effect and torture him (and maybe his offspring too) forever. He will never forgive himself for killing Spiky...
In this case, getting rid of the curse (in its first meaning) will just make things worse...
