Tuesday Tips - Inspirations
“La Vallée des Bannis” (“Valley of Banishment”, ?)
Growing up in Canada (Quebec), European “bandes-dessinees” were all-around. Not viewed as a”kid’s thing”, it seemed like every household had a collection of Asterix, Lucky Luke, Gaston Lagaffe, etc. I would say they were considered “light literature” by adults. As they should. Spirou and Fantasio was my favorite. I’ve read most of the series (excluding some of the last ones), but number 41 hit a sweet spot. It followed the events from the previous tome, but it also stood on its own as a great little story. The two inseparable friends are thrown in a mysterious, hostile environment were Fantasio gets infected by a virus that makes him act crazy and violent towards his friend. In this dangerous environment and situation, Spirou has to not only fight for his life but also figure out the secrets of this forsaken place.

This particular tome was in complete Indiana Jones territory. Spirou, originally conceived as a Bellboy in the original Franquin tomes, quickly became a journalist (reporter) in later adventures. In “La Vallée des Bannis”, he’s a full-on adventure-seeker, a man put in a very dangerous, mysterious situation.

Apart from the fun story, the art was just the most exciting thing I had ever seen. I was always a big Uderzo fan (Asterix), but Janry’s work kept evolving has the tomes went on, and I was all-in on the ride. The staging, acting, inking, everything was just pure entertainment, all done with a sense of fun and comedy. And it still holds up! Just amazing.


Imagine a couple months before the Sole Survivor emerges from Vault 111. Piper Wright, investigative journalist and resident snoop, is locked up in Diamond City’s security office. “The Piper Suite”, officers jokingly call the cell while she’s doing her time. The reporter gets a five-day sentence for the crime of creating a public disturbance, but everyone knows she’s getting punished for wearing on the Mayor’s nerves. Again.

And Piper, she sits and waits and stews over it. Oh, the articles she’ll write when she gets out. Corrupt leadership, abuses of authority, unlawful imprisonment, staunching free speech… There are going to be a lot of big names in the next edition. Just wait.

On the third morning she smokes her last cigarette, and by lunch she’s tense over more than her incarceration. Of course, none of the officers will spare her the courtesy of a smoke. Jerks. And there’s nobody on the outside to bring her any; Piper made it clear a long time ago that Nat wasn’t visit her in jail. No girl should have to see her big sister under arrest, even if it was on trumped up charges.

Nicotine deprivation has Piper pacing the cell, snapping at the officers on the other side. They don’t pay her any mind, save one exception.

“Hey.” A guard she doesn’t recognize leans against the bars, and he flashes a pack and a lighter. 

Piper wants to be stubborn about it, wants to turn her nose up as though accepting would be beneath her, but she needs it too badly.

“Thanks,” she grunts as she tucks one of the cigarettes between her lips. He lights it for her and she breathes in deep, unbearably relieved to have her gnawing addiction placated for a while.

She’s not expecting it when the officer says, “Look after yourself, Ms. Wright. This town needs you.”

Piper is so thrown off hearing that from Diamond City Security that she can’t form words for a few seconds, and the man is already walking away when she finally manages to mutter another uh, thanks. He gives her a little nod of acknowledgement before he’s out the door, probably headed for patrol duty or down to the field.

Piper never caught his name.

Imagine a couple months after the Sole Survivor emerges from Vault 111.  Piper Wright, investigative journalist and wasteland adventurer, celebrates a team effort to clear a raider camp by bumming a cigarette from Deacon.

“Thanks. I owe you one,” she says, ignoring the blood on her boots to better enjoy the old, soothing habit.

“Actually, you owe me two,” Deacon replies.

Piper raises an eyebrow at him, but the spy only chuckles and shakes his head, not bothering to explain.


This is the trailer to 10 Days in a Madhouse, a movie which follows the historical adventures of journalist Nellie Bly (real name Elizabeth Cochrane). Bly’s undercover reporting on the horrific conditions of an insane asylum - for which she was trapped inside for 10 days without help - were some of the most important reporting of her day. At last we get a movie commemorating that.

Years after this movie takes place, Bly once again made history by speeding around the world in faster than 80 days – in a race against another female reporter, Elisabeth Bisland, who was doing the same!

It’s in theaters now, I believe, but appears to be in limited release.

(and yes, both Bly and Bisland are on the list)

Had a big fight with my managing editor today.

(The managing editor of my college paper, that is.)

Why? Because I’m not going to tolerate BS and disrespect anymore, and I told her that.

Meet the new, improved Kaye: She’s sassy, she’s bold, she stands up for justice, and she doesn’t take crap from anyone.

Idiot on Forum: Why does everyone rave about Sarah Jane Smith? Her characterisation is all over the place!
Me: Have you tried watching her time on the show in order?
Idiot on Forum: Why would I want to do that? Everyone knows there’s no continuity in Classic Who. I just pick and choose random stories to watch. It’s not as if the characters ever change. If they seem different, that’s just inconsistent writing.
Me: *facepalm*

This is the downside of classic fans for years now telling all newbies to just pick and choose which stories to watch and not to worry about seeing them in order. If we keep telling people there’s no continuity they will believe there is no continuity and because they therefore never watch in order, because they believe they don’t have to, they will never ever realise just how much continuity and progression there actually is!

Sarah’s evolution from ambitious and career-focused journalist to free-spirited adventurer being case in point!

Any character development in any show is going to look like inconsistent writing if you don’t actually watch it through in order.
