An Introduction to some of our Characters in Temporal Pests

#Temporal Pests are mostly a satire or parody or #fantasy or whatever you want to call it of all those cosmic crisises and convergences and crossovers. You'll encounter some familiar characters from a variety of genres.

Sassy a sentient dachshund from Teckelstein who with Goldie first appeared in a fanfic satire about a scifi program popular at the time and now defunct.

Goldie the Goullawk Queen. Like her friend Sassy she's escaped from fanfic and rampages across realities. I told you I'm just the scribe.

JonaHexed. Now who could he be? He sometimes has adventures with the girls because so long as he has a few readers he will not fade into oblivion. Fortunately he was written to be lucky!

Fluvia Canta. I guess not enough fans of a certain show know Latin. A gun slinging archaeologist with some interesting boyfriends and a spouse who's out of this world.  Then again her boyfriends are her spouse. She likes to go shopping with the girls and other fun activities like escaping prisons and shooting people who really do serve to be shoot.

Reg London's only  Dallawk taxi cab driver and yes it is a traditional black cab with a few extras under the bonnet. Yes Reg does resemble a certain type of mutant cyborg he has a heart of gold and a spouse who wears silver and steel.

HerInside likes to garden and cook and wears a frilly pinafore or apron to make it quite clear despite her outer form she's a lady inside.

The Wizards of London. That guy form Chicago said he was too busy.

However other people from London apart from a certain cynical chain smoker have magical powers including Young Robert apprentice to Dr A.

Yes Young Robert and Dr A do work in an occult clean up service.

The Technical Support crew from Pasadena. I have to explain this one?

Ron and Jack
Scholarly saints aiding our girls behind the scenes.
One was once a Catholic the other once a Protestant and both were famous writers.

Various dragons. One of these days some one is figuring to figure out who Mr BlackandSilver is however perhaps thankfully not everyone knows Sindarin or thought about the name of a certain character in a certain series.

Finally Teckelstein. Basically a large chunk of land including a lake islands surrounding mountains once allegedly part of Central Europe and now a planetoid with fusion ramjet and other drives plus dimension jumping devices and much more and a population of dachshunds and characters either taking a vacation or recovering from what their writers do to them in between issues episodes and novels.

Come and join us at Temporal Pests. The plot and the narrative are a bit of muddle but thats probably due to the temporal backlash from the girls reality altering adventures.

Cosmic messaging

Cosmic Messaging

Yes readers despite the lack of interest our #satire # parody #explanation of #cosmic #crossover #crisies continues. Of course its fictional and yet given this years plot developments at a certain company ... well lets just say two or three of our characters are smirking and I'm worried since I know the ending even if you don't!

In the bunker behind a door now reinforced with unobtanium and similar metals courtesy of Wolowiz the Texan Praying Mantis and others were using every terminal to type up mailing lists for everyone they could think of  who either had net access or the local equivalent or could send on messages to others.

In a cave under a plateau near a certain Eastern Seaboard city on a bay a faithful retainer had his Second Life session disrupted by an incoming message.

On the screen of several timeships across the multiverse pleas for help and co-ordinates flashed.

Most importantly of all the inbox yapped on A.F. von Teckelstein's desk and a printer churned out a page of information.

One steaming mad queen a couple of hundred enraged Teckelsteiners who had nearly been erased from existence and quite a few other people now known who was responsible and where to go and now to get there.

Or try to get there.

The gates still needed to be opened.

Glitter Goullawk

Copyright julie vaux 2014

this is what happens when a goullawk queen  rolls in glitter after a scale polishing session and her poor lowly scribe tries to draw it in colored pencil and marker and then decides to test her laptop webcam by holding up the piece of watercolor paper to it ...

hope you enjoyed this test piece

Steaming Queens

Steaming Queens

Back at the Node the villains moved over to the control bunker and left a certain hole in the ground unattended. The hole was the shape of a giant robotic foot on its outer edges and in the middle, an indent in the soil, was the outline of a Goullawk.

Somewhere under that was what was left of Goldie's body in a comatose state.

A gardening robot came trundling over and filled the hole with water and then went off to get some soil and plants. The water soaked downwards and meet some unique biochemistry.

Some odd sounds arose from the hole. Fizzing bubbling popping and hissing  as the hole filled with something that looked like a purple soft drink.

There was a bulge as something at the bottom of the hole absorbed fluid and begun to UNflatten but slowly. The bubbling continued. Steam rose up.

The fluid rippled. A pair of breathing holes  could be seen if you were really close. There was a loud inhaling noise then all the bubbling hissing and steaming stopped except for a occasional plop of extra large bubbles.

The queen was steaming mad. Woe betide anything that got in her way when she emerged from healing.
