Vladimir, the Psychic Decorator, came over to where Voohon stood brooding and made note of the hole in Tzedon’s front yard.
“Relax, We won’t end up in that hole. I’ll deal with that ghost at the Candyfornia build site. Lets go get you some breakfast at the diner before we take off”
Privately, Vladimir knew he was in waaaaay over his head, but he could not let Voohon know that he was actually unqualified to deal with REAL ghosts.
Voohon would probably turn him in to Tzedon straight away just to deflect attention from his own shortcomings.
What a mess.
First there had been the involvement of the spooky ghost-descended Salas family in that matter of the gift car for one of Tzedon’s wives.
The huge plant had been purchased as “protection” (cough) from that potential psychic threat.
Now this other ghost was violently haunting the proposed site for Tzedon’s new vacation home in Candyfornia.
Fearsome, violent, Tzedon never experienced any major setbacks in his life. Who would dare get in his way? That damn moth of his was in fine health and lived a pampered, well protected life..no special magic needed. But Tzedon was a superstitious man and at least partially credited his various Psychic Decorators..including Vladimir, for his success, and CryptoMoth’s health. He paid his consultants very well.
Vladimir only had an Associates Degree in Protective Decorating from a non- accredited, shady, but inexpensive sort of “school”, but he WAS a good salesman..pretty much a con-man… and had landed Tzedon as a client.
He was not at all a real expert in dealing with actual supernatural forces, but he could not let Voohon know this. (He also was no botanist..as Kl-a-Dar had determined when she sold him that huge specimen plant intended for Tzedon’s Amnora Glipsunu home.)
Vladimir was good at thinking on his feet. He was sure, given enough time, he would figure out some way to deal with all this ghost stuff. But he would not HAVE time to do that if Voohon figured out he was a fraud.
Spooky, Scary Skeletons Send Shivers Down Your Spine Happy Halloween everyone! Today is the last day of my year long daily lettering project, it’s been a pretty great year and I couldn’t resist ending on a suitably spooky note. I totally love lettering, but after a year of doing it every day I’m a little burnt out on it, so I will definitely continue to post on this blog, just less frequently. Watch this space!
This Inktober I was thinking of doing some requests throughout the month! I really feel like drawing spooky stuff, mythological creatures/characters, animals, witches, and magical girls. So some requests within those guidelines would be really much appreciated! Hit me your ideas as notes, I just might end up drawing your ideas.
One more note on the ominous implications of the Cipher Hunt. I personally think that right now Alex is having fun being spooky and ominous, going “ooooh, Bill is still
hanging around…he might be RIGHT BEHIND YOU! MWAHAHAHAHA!”
It’s like the pre-ending jumpscare in a horror movie where the monster you thought was dead opens its eyes. It’s not about changing the ending for the characters so much as giving the audience the lingering feeling of “oooh, this creature is still out there somewhere.”
We may never get a canonical explanation for why Stan was singing “we’ll meet again,” or how the Cipher Hunt even fits into canon (if it does at all.) Alex knows his fans are going to run wild with speculation, theories and fan content, and that’s all just part of the fun! But none of it undoes the happy ending we did get in canon. It’s all just a bonus for people who enjoy the speculation.
this is the i-just-wanted-to-do-a-thing-with-maria-my-queen-and-spend-2-hours-on-a-cheesy-banner promo tbh hahHAHahhAH. but yeah omg valentine’s day is around the corner (okay not really but you get the drift) so let’s spread some legs and love everyone!! （。≖ิ‿≖ิ）
