If you remain a fan of the invented characters in my blue binder cartoons, the ones you were in: I had fun blogging kind of a lot about them recently at Tumblr and I decided I should reprint those entries at LiveJournal as backups. This is the last one. It was composed for Tumblr Self-Insert Week.

When there was Tumblr self-insert weekend about six months ago, I drew new art of pretty much all my self-insert stories ever. There is, however, one I neglected to mention. Perhaps because describing it entails recapping nearly the entire two-plus-decades history of my pre-internet “blue binder” journal comics. Yes, it’s a biggie.

For me [as I shall refer, for simplicity’s sake, to my avatar in the cartoons], it all started ...Collapse )

If you remain a fan of the invented characters in my blue binder cartoons, the ones you were in: I had fun blogging kind of a lot about them recently at Tumblr and I decided I should reprint those entries at LiveJournal as backups.

When I first decided with paper dailies in the 90s to excise other people's intellectual property from the stories of Infinity Labs and the Moreau Project, the tv characters whom Infinity Labs would visit interdimensionally were replaced by thinly-veiled parodies of themselves: Captain X (who was played by a different actor every time his/her time machine moved), Space Wars, Space Wars: The New Battles, Space Wars: Battle Station Zed, W*R*A*H, etc. When paper dailies were revived for online in 2003, however, it was on a website where there were already cartoons based on what had developed into an entire "imaginary screen canon".

In 1999 I had started going through my Star Trek/Doctor Who crossovers and globally replacing the franchises' proper nouns with names from the Matter of Britain: Arthur for Kirk, Guenevere for McCoy, Lancelot for Spock, Merlin or Nimue for the Doctor, etc.; under the umbrella title King Arthur in Time and Space (the precursor, obviously, for Arthur, King of Time and Space). My original fanfiction website has several such stories and several pages of timeline of air history for the imaginary tv shows that those stories are fanfiction of. So when online "original dailies" started they naturally(?) replaced the thinly-veiled parodies with the KAITAS equivalents.

And that's why in this cartoon the visiting interdimensional time traveler is Nimue wearing the Doctor's costume from Scream of the Shalka, instead of the Doctor himself, or instead of Captain X.

This is the final "original daily" comic strip in the history of Infinity Labs and/or the Moreau Project, because when Arthur, King of Time and Space started I changed the first website's cartoons' format to fanfiction only; and because, since I was quitting original Dailies, it meant I could expose Infinity Labs to the world even though I couldn't for the life of me figure out what would happen next. (Though in 2006 I learned to make Flash animations for the internet, and for a very short time Akili Tembo and Newton Dexter lived again, but there wasn't any real story development before I ran out of inspiration.)

This is the only appearance in online "original dailies" of Newton Dexter's android wife Monica, poking fun at his interpersonal skills much the same as he does himself in the one where he recruits Akili into the second incarnation of Infinity Labs. Newton originally built Monica to be his lab assistant and things developed from there.

In the original characters' storyline that was going to wrap up on the dailies' 25th anniversary in 2001, Akili and Monica were going to be having a love affair, with Newton perfectly aware of how they felt about each other but oblivious to their feelings of guilt for betraying him. The conflict between Infinity Labs and the governments of the world was to come to a head, and the children of the Moreau Project were going to settle another planet because that was something Infinity Labs had been doing for people for a few years, and Newton and Monica were going back to the Philosophers' Club. But none of that happened.

Been some posts I've seen recently citing news stories in support of the contention that a bad guy with a gun is stopped by a good guy with a gun. Well, a good guy with a gun may stop a bad guy with a gun, sometimes. Not all the time. Seldomly enough, obviously, that unfairly or not no one hears about it. If not never, then insignificantly. If significantly, still certainly insufficiently.

Law keeping guns away from bad guys prevents most or all shootings from happening, as proven in all nations and U.S. states that have enacted it (Australia, the U.K, Connecticut). Gun control is more effective than good guys with guns are.

"MCC" stands for Moreau Childcare Center. As referenced previously, the Moreau Project had begun a program where its second generation was being raised all over the world in human society instead of on the Moreau base in Kenya like the first generation.

Of course, had I spent more than every third day for only 2005 drawing the history of the original Dailies for my original fanfiction website, there'd be more of the anti-Moreau movement story retold then to be reprinted now: The sole casualty of the MCC Chicago bombing was the one person who had resolved to talk to Monica, Newton's android wife, and Akili about the growing affection between them, of which no one else was aware (Akili and Monica didn't realize it was mutual, yet) except, of course, Newton. The whole thing was going to turn into a Camelotian love triangle, to be wrapped up in a storyline for the Dailies' twenty-fifth anniversary in 2001 that was going to retire all the Dailies' invented characters except Aihok and Effex. Then internet fanfiction came along and effectively derailed all offline Dailies scenarios. None of the Monica-Akili romance survived into online original Dailies. Monica only appears in one that is among the upcoming reprints. As of some Flash animations I did in 2006, Infinity Labs is still in operation.

Also: Maria was a doe. The MCC bombing was the cover story of Time and/or Newsweek when it happened, and the cover photo was of Maria's son on the scene of the bombing. Having "killed Bambi's mother", the anti-Moreau extremists who'd done it realized it was a public relations disaster for their cause, and backed off whatever their followup plans may have been. There was a storyline involving a televangelist's persecution of Moreau people, but he eventually died and went to heaven where he got called on the carpet by God. "Did I not create the universe because I was lonely? Where will I find any peers except among beings who create other beings??"

Newton donated the Chicago area Infinity Labs buildings and grounds (they were out in the western suburbs somewhere; if I knew exactly where I've forgotten now) to the Moreau Project to establish a new MCC with. Now that Infinity Labs was less a secret science institution than a secret advocacy organization for other secret science institutions, it didn't need all the space. Labs headquarters was moved to Louisville, Kentucky, in-text and out-text because that's where I lived at the time, and I was Newton's administrative assistant. A commute to Chicago wasn't a burden to an employee of an outfit with interdimensional travel, but now that Newton had given up Windy City Base there was no reason not to consolidate his offices into Derby City Base.

Saw my doctor yesterday. He recommended Immodium and gave me a suggested diet (which doesn't include pudding because it has milk in it) which offers a few more options especially for when I feel ready to progress to more solid foods. He also says that something like this runs six to seven days. I emailed work to say I wouldn't be in the rest of the week.

I'm better today but not as better as I expected. Applesauce was coming through solid but was leaving me hungry. I tried jello and pudding but they came through fluid. No more nausea or lightheadedness! But I can't trust my digestive system for half the distance to the bathroom and had to take measures. It was worse in the early afternoon today than now but I expect to miss work again tomorrow (the distance to the restroom there is much greater) and, barring a profound further reversal of symptoms before midafternoon, to call to see my doctor after all.

I sure hope there are no Sanders supporters who've reblogged or shared that post linking dozens of videos of Sanders correctly predicting what was going to go wrong with all the most problematic legislature passed during the decades of his career, who are now responding to him calling to rally behind Clinton against Trump by ignoring him and instead campaigning to write him in or to vote third party or even not to vote at all because that's what'll really truly show'em.
