Schrodinger's Heroes: Miscellaneous Aces

This is part of my activity for Asexual Awareness Week.

Schrodinger's Heroes  is an apocryphal television show about quantum physics and keeping the Earth safe from alternate dimensions.  If you're not familiar with it, you can browse the menu page.  The following images may make more sense if you have read the descriptions for Melannen's characters and my characters.  LOL_Heroes is a branch of LOL picspam inspired by Schrodinger's Heroes.  See post 1post 2, and post 3.

This batch of images presents some additional characters, and more of Schrodinger.  Ash is canonically ace (in human form), appearing here as an Abyssinian cat.  Bailey is not canonically ace (in human form), but sometimes portrayed that way in fanfic.  Saash is a crossover from Diane Duane's Young Wizards  series. You can see full-size images in the LOL_Heroes gallery, in the Schrodinger Aces and Miscellaneous Aces files.

Schrodinger's Heroes: "French Military Victories" (3 of 4)

This is part of my activity for Asexual Awareness Week. If you missed the beginning of this story, back up and read Part 1 and Part 2.

French Military Victories, Part 3

Jean-Claude: "Quinn, please, be serious. The Master of the City of San Francisco has asked us to help with a sorcerer who is summoning leccubi, and we need to stop over and pick up some ... additional personnel from your area."

Quinn: [Laughs.] "San Francisco has a problem with sex demons? Oh, I can't wait to hear how THIS turns out."

Jean-Claude: "It is no laughing matter! Quinn, they may ravage the entire city if we do not get there in time to stop the next ritual--"

Quinn: [Howls with laughter, drops phone with a clunk.]

Jean-Claude: "Quinn? QUINN? Answer me, you disobedient childe!"

Quinn: "Sorry, sorry, I dropped the phone. Don't worry about San Francisco. It's covered. That's Dusty's stomping ground, you know, the lesbian mercenary I mentioned a while back? Her team is probably on that case already, but I'll give them a heads up just to make sure."

Jean-Claude: "There must be something I can say to convince you. It will only be myself, and Asher, and ma petite, and the bodyguards and some extra food--"

Quinn: "And a partridge in a pear tree."

Jean-Claude: "Just one little visit. I have already promised ma petite that I would arrange a landing in your area. She will not be pleased if I am unable."

Quinn: "Yes, I've heard all about your communication problems."

Jean-Claude: "We do not have communication problems!"

Quinn: "So that rumor about the third member of your triumvirate dumping you and moving to Tennessee was just a rumor?"

Jean-Claude: "Well, Richard did leave, but he came back! Just because we had a little misunderstanding doesn't mean we have trouble communicating. We talk all the time."

Quinn: "I'll just bet you do."

Jean-Claude: "Jealous, mon ami? If you let us land the jet, I will offer you hospitality. You may choose from anyone wearing a red shirt."

Quinn: "God, no! I don't need you to set me up, Jean-Claude. I have a perfectly happy arrangement of my own!"

Jean-Claude: "No arrangement is ever perfectly happy."

Quinn: "Well, not everyone's love life is as fucked up as yours, either!" [Hangs up, throws phone to clatter against the wall.]

Crowdfunded Illustration: "Restoration"

meeksp has posted an update of the illustration based on my poem "Restoration."  View it on LiveJournal or on Dreamwidth.  The radiator dragon now has wee little legs, and scales, and a back rill; and is draped in a wavery line over the wire rack.  The two monsters have been considerably refined -- check out the huge sad eyes -- although there's more room for detailing there. 

More comments get more work done on a sketch, so please let the artist know what you think of this update.  Donations are welcome too.  aldersprig has suggested (on LJ) that it would be fun to see a followup image of the dragon on the radiator, so that's something else you can mention if the idea appeals. 

In related news: meeksp recently posted a screencap from her work on the Mikaspace website, which will provide a navigable gallery for all the Story Sketches.  Keep an eye out for that to go live.
