After two sessions (seven months apart) and a total of six hours in the chair, my Thrilling Adventure Hour ink is finally finished!

Thanks to Acker & Blacker, and all the WJ Players and guests for such a glorious show, with extra special thanks to Marc Evan Jackson for writing my POW!. I’m so, so pleased with how this ended up.

Sparks Nevada: Barkeep, what kind of realities?

Barkeep: Well, they’re like this one, only there’s some where we all made different choices. And some where everybody’s got the other gender. Or different preferences.

Sparks Nevada: Whaaat?

Barkeep: Yeah. And there’s one where we’re all teenagers in high school together.

Sparks Nevada: What? Different…choices?

Saloon AI: We…we’re teenagers?

Sparks Nevada: What?

Saloon AI: Am I the high school?

Sparks Nevada: What?

Saloon AI: I’m the high school, aren’t I?

Croach the Tracker: Ugh. Humans and their remedial gender constructs.

 —“Cosmic Sans” (Sparks Nevada, Marshal on Mars; The Thrilling Adventure Hour #193)

Drunk Croach in that episode was freaking adorable!

‘I miss my Red from my universe, and I also miss myself from my me.’
'Where’s my Reddy-Red Rider pants gone?’
'I have no friends nor drinks. But yes I am drunk and we are friends.’
'You dreamt about me! Come here ginger beer!’
'Where is my girlfriend you unpleasant cheese from the milk of the single worst and largest butt?’

Also Mark screwing up his line at the start: ’I shall start that all again…. From the song. When there’s varmints….’

“Croach, are you drunk?”

“Regularly, since I fulfilled my onus to you, Sparks Nevada.” 

“So Croach, you’ve been drinking for five months?” 

“Ever since my first imbibe-ment” 

“On our parting of ways, huh? I see.” 

“What do you see with your limited visual senses?” 

“I mean I understand, Croach. I get it, I’m flattered. But buddy, you do not look good.”

“Pfft, I do not know why you’re flattered. I feel as if I look good. I feel as if I have been designated Croach the Extremely Good Looking And Who Maybe Possesses the Ability to Fly. And who are you, Sparks Nevada, that I put your drink-onus upon my tabulation, and you tell me I do not look good? And why is this establishment spinning? Answer the second question first….Bagropa, it has ceased. As to your ingratitude, perhaps you should be designated Sparks Nevada, the Butt-Milk.” –Sparks Nevada and Croach the Tracker on The Thrilling Adventure Hour: Sparks Nevada, Marshal on Mars
