But I'm A Cat Person

GO TO YOUR SNAKE PIT by ErinPtah

(Transcript at the source.)

Ever since it was first hinted that Cecil has a sister, I feel like all the fanon has been that she’s older that he is, and has a tough, sensible caretaker sort of vibe. When all I want from this is endless Lilo & Stitch riffs.

Teenage Cecil has just been promoted from unpaid intern to Voice of Night Vale. Between that and the inheritance now that his mother has been ruled “municipally most-likely-dead”, he’s doing pretty well financially.

But he’s also been left the legal guardian of his seven-year-old sister. And trying to take care of her — while holding down a full-time job, all without dropping out of high school — is stressful, to say the least. Both siblings’ tempers are starting to fray.

Maybe they should get a dog.

Hero’s Quest by ErinPtah
Finally sitting down to do some of the art I was planning for the 30 Days of TAH Extravaganza. Sparks, Red, and Croach, discussing Red’s efforts to sort out her heritage.Day 8: Sparks Nevada Universe Episodes: The musical episode (e070 The Piano Has Been Thinking) was amazing, just because I’m a sucker for that kind of integration of lyrics and plot.And e170 Inventor-y is possibly my favorite standalone episode. Sparks geeking out over Dr. Ardison, celebrated inventor of robot fists, was darned cute. Even as it was hilarious to see how Dr. Ardison herself (and Croach’s deadpan reactions to her) was a terrible, terrible person.Plus, all the Pemily Stallwark episodes. (More on her later, possibly.)Day 12: Sparks Nevada Quotes: There’s a lot of good and clever writing in this show, but honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever laughed at anything in this show quite as hard as that time when a drunk Croach cut Sparks off with a belligerent “I’M FROM EARTH.”Plus, everything the Science Beings say. (Hopefully more on them later too.)

Caveat: Sparks Nevada is the one TAH segment where I cringe at some of the jokes. Mostly in the early episodes, where they’re still figuring out how to parody the racism in old-timey Westerns (and the old-timey West in general), and sometimes it just ends up sounding kinda racist. If you’re new to TAH, maybe brace yourself for that going in.…and then there’s e177 Wild, Wild Quest. Which has a subplot of “law enforcement mistakes a gathering of innocent people for a threat based on their appearance, and kills them all.” And it’s supposed to be slapstick and funny, and the one survivor’s anger and guilt is played for laughs. I recommend Sparks in general, but with a big red asterisk about staying away from #177 unless you’re ready to either (a) compartmentalize like hell or (b) feel upset and tired.

World’s Foremost Cecilologist by ErinPtah

I can’t tell if obsessive chart-making is Carlos’s way of giving himself an excuse for all the time he spends gazing dreamily at Cecil, or if it’s just a Thing He Does no matter what.

In the Futurama episode “Less Than Hero”, Fry and Leela (joined by Bender) are endowed with super powers, taking on the aliases “Captain Yesterday” and “Clobberella”.And then they go save some diamond or something. I don’t know. I drew the lineart when I saw the episode, but then forgot about it for, like, a year.Point is, Fry and Leela are awesome.

Hellsing Pairing Meme -NSFW- by ErinPtah

The answers to this shouldn’t be much of a surprise to anyone…

(Typo—“bit part” should be “big part”. And “effeminite” should be “effeminate”. *headdesk*)
