a small list of commercial entities that exist in the snicket universe and my headcanons involving them:

- Ink, Incorporated: I like to believe that they make a comeback by the time ASoUE happens because the fax machine and desktop computer get invented, finally giving Cleo Knight’s company a means to sell tiny little things of ink for like 20 bucks each.

- Black Cat Coffee: Black Cat becomes the Snicketverse equivalent of Starbucks, only since it’s all automated and self-service the coffee is even more awful.

- The Anxious Clown: Probably has a play area and a bunch of horrifying circus animal mascots in addition to all the clowns. I feel like Bertrand and Beatrice used to take the kids for drive through and let them eat in the car whenever they didn’t feel like cooking or doing washing up. Carmelita Spats is indefinitely banned from the one in whatever town she’s from. 

- Dilemma Motors: The Dilemma automobile is no longer made by the time ASoUE happens, because those things are basically tanks and they’re probably involved in 900% of fatal automobile collisions. 

- Last Chance General Store: They ran a really obnoxious TV ad when Violet and Klaus were younger that became a huge in-joke in the Baudelaire house around the time they started planning their trip to the hinterlands.

- The Daily Punctilio: unfortunately, this paper is still around 20 years after ASoUE finishes, and it’s still completely stupid. Eventually it becomes an internet meme. Grown-up Violet and Klaus occasionally get forwarded ‘Hospital Almost Forgets Paperwork’ by their friends, it still makes them feel uncomfortable. 

- Sebald Films: Sebald’s films have attained cult status for their incredibly awkward dialogue and nothing budgets. VFD uses this to their advantage, organising Rocky Horror-style midnight screenings for interested volunteers. (The shit you yell at the screen is also in code but it’s a different code)

- The Littlest Elf: At the time ASoUE is set in, The Littlest Elf is the single most irritating children’s book/movie franchise ever made. Lemony Snicket loves the littlest elf and doesn’t care what you think about him. Olaf loves it too (hence the bobblehead in his car) but he pretends he only likes it ironically. They both know all the words to Loverly Spring and that’s the only thing they have in common.

- Lucky Smells Lumbermill: Sir has an epiphany after his near-death experience in book 12- he quits the lumber business and buys the company he got all the chewing gum from, rebrands it as Lucky Smells Fresh Breath Gum. He still pays the gum factory workers in coupons. 

-Pretty Penny Fashion Doll: They’ve been around for ages and Esme still has like 10 of them. If you ask her she’ll insist they are not dolls, they’re very tiny mannequins.

Hey just wanted to drop by and thank you for drawing ASOUE fanart because it can be a bit unrewarding to create fanart for a small fandom but I wanted you to know that I love every single drawing you make!

Honestly, I’d like to thank you so very much for this comment!! It’s because of people like you that inspire me to keep drawing for A Series of Unfortunate Events <3<3<3 thank you thank you thank you

The movie you are about to see is extremely unpleasant. If you wish to see a film about a happy little elf, I’m sure there is still plenty of seating in theatre number two. However, if you like stories about clever and reasonably attractive orphans, suspicious fires, carnivorous leeches, Italian food and secret organizations, then stay, as I retrace each and every one of the Baudelaire children’s woeful steps. My name is Lemony Snicket, and it is my sad duty to document this tale.

As a massive fan not only of Lemony Snicket’s “A Series of Unfortunate Events” but of the news of Netflix turning it into a series in 2016, I want to mention something I noticed.

If the movie was released in 2004…

And the series will be in 2016… That means when it finally premieres, we can all say, in complete seriousness
