Cecil/Carlos/post-mind-control!Kevin.(Including Cecil playing with Carlos’s hair.)I keep writing things where Kevin is more than just Cecil’s weirdly-similar Desert Bluffs counterpart. Where he’s a deliberate clone of Cecil, for example. Where his non-brainwashed self is going to be exactly as attracted to Carlos as Cecil is…and Carlos is going to feel all the love and sympathy for Kevin that he would have felt if he’d met original-flavor Cecil while Cecil was recovering from a bout of Strex-related trauma.It would also be logical for this Kevin to fall for a Desert Bluffs counterpart to Carlos, but my fanon DB!Carlos is straight, which throws a wrench in that solution.So! Cuddly polyamory it is.For all Cecil’s violent suspicion of Strex!Kevin, he ends up being very protective of recovered!Kevin. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that he now has someone to team up with in the noble cause of Dragging Carlos Away From Science for Boyfriend Time.

Cecil/Carlos/post-mind-control!Kevin.

(Including Cecil playing with Carlos’s hair.)

I keep writing things where Kevin is more than just Cecil’s weirdly-similar Desert Bluffs counterpart. Where he’s a deliberate clone of Cecil, for example. Where his non-brainwashed self is going to be exactly as attracted to Carlos as Cecil is…and Carlos is going to feel all the love and sympathy for Kevin that he would have felt if he’d met original-flavor Cecil while Cecil was recovering from a bout of Strex-related trauma.

It would also be logical for this Kevin to fall for a Desert Bluffs counterpart to Carlos, but my fanon DB!Carlos is straight, which throws a wrench in that solution.

So! Cuddly polyamory it is.

For all Cecil’s violent suspicion of Strex!Kevin, he ends up being very protective of recovered!Kevin. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that he now has someone to team up with in the noble cause of Dragging Carlos Away From Science for Boyfriend Time.

On With The Show by ErinPtah

A Thrilling Adventure Hour cast roundup! Trying to fit at least one or two characters from every continuity. Largely based on their appearances in the graphic novel, with some personal headcanons and preferences thrown in.

Left to right:
Croach the Tracker and Sparks Nevada
Colonel Tick-Tock
The Red Plains Rider
(Sparks Nevada)
Philip Fathom (Captain Laserbeam)
The Barkeep (Sparks Nevada) (who doesn’t want no trouble in his place)
Banjo Bindlestaff (Moonshine Holler)
Captain Laserbeam
Agent Abby Adams
(Jefferson Reid, Amelia Earhart: Fearless Flyer)
Amelia Earhart (fearless flyer!)
Dorothy Parker (The Algonquin Four)
Sadie Doyle and Frank Doyle (Beyond Belief)

30 Days of TAH is coming to its grand finale….

Day 2: All About The Music: The Sparks Nevada musical episode was a treasure — if I had to pick one favorite song, it would be Poor Me (Pour Me Another) (and its reprise). I listened to it months ago, and the refrain still gets stuck in my head.

Same with If You Love Something, Never Set It Free. So catchy. So cheerfully disturbing.

Day 25: Special Episodes:
On With The Show is catnip for anyone who likes gratuitous crossovers and delicious meta humor. All the actors on stage at once, voicing as many different characters as the writers could cram in. (“Who are you being now?”)

All leading up to a big ensemble musical number. It’s gloriously indulgent. It’s the greatest thing. My only complaint is that it wasn’t nearly long enough.

I’m…from the Moon. by ErinPtah
I promised some Pemily Stallwark for 30 Days of TAH, and here she is!As a Victor in the Moon’s deadly Punishment Soccer, Pemily has a lot of trauma to work through…plus a lot of strength and skills to be proud of. A little mentoring from Sparks Nevada and his friends has helped her along the way, and now she’s a Marshal in her own right…equipped with, I can only assume, robot elbow/kneepads.Day 13: Favorite Non-Major Characters: TAH overall has been really good at providing standalone spinoffs for exactly the characters I would have nominated. The Troubleshooter has had one. The Algonquin Four got theirs. Phillip Fathom seems like he’s in line for plenty.I would love an all-vampire-and/or-werewolf spinoff of Beyond Belief. Including not just the Hendersons, but Carlysle Ravencastle (Dark Husband to the Midnight!), and going all-out with the vampire-culture worldbuilding. Plus maybe some werewolf-culture worldbuilding, if applicable in this universe.Also full of possibility: a Captain-Laserbeam-universe episode taking place 100% in the Adventurekateer Clubhouse. Let’s see how, exactly, the Adventurekateers get their information; what they talk about while waiting for Captain Laserbeam to answer distress calls; how they coordinate with the Investigateens, and, while we’re at it, some of the other kid-sidekick teams of Apex City heroes.And we absolutely need some episodes focusing on Pemily Stallwark, Marshal on the Moon. I cannot understand why we don’t have this already.Day 26: Guest Stars: Molly Quinn, as Pemily, has to be my favorite semi-regular. Elsewhere, I didn’t even recognize Bradley Whitford as Basil Valentine, and I liked it. Very much.All the Daily Show contributors and correspondents are near and dear to my heart. Those appearing in TAH include Wyatt Cenac (e172 The Bloodsucker Proxy), John Hodgman (quite a few episodes, including e172, e70 The Piano Has Been Thinking, and e067 Disenchantment Under the Sea), and Ed Helms (e011 A Comet’s Tale, e029 Beanstalk).More of those, please! Of the current TDS correspondents, the ones I would peg as doing the best funny voice work are Samantha Bee, Jessica Williams, and Jason Jones. And never forget Olivia Munn, who needs someone to start offering her good roles again instead of mediocre sitcoms, bad horror movies, and whatever The Newsroom turned into.If the Bens can figure out a way to get an extended Lord of the Rings parody into a TAH episode, you might even be able to woo Stephen Colbert into this. (I’d nominate him for guest writer, too. Maybe with the help of Paul Dinello and Amy Sedaris. Get the band back together, so to speak.)
