     Except for, naturally, Cannon Fodder.  And then there's Sig.Lad, who may
or may not be dead, depending on how you define it.  And under certain
definitions of death, Kopikat has died numerous times, replaced in each
instance by someone with her memories.  :)  Squid Boy sort of died and came
back thanks to Suicide Squid.

     Unless, of course, you mean just your own LNH stories.

     Dave Van Domelen, notes that body/soul separability means death is a lot
less permanent in ASH, too.
