QUICKIE: Teepee
Christmas Tree -TRIGGER WARNING- (divorce topic)
Seems Tasli has returned home to find someone has left him a gift. Let's see who it's from...

TASLI (to self): "Mom says 'a friend' left me this present. I've been with Gene and Mubba all afternoon; Mimi, maybe? There's a note..."

NOTE:

"Hey, Tasli
I made these treats for my family's Thanksgiving.
We had a lot left over (all of them, actually); I thought you may enjoy some.
You're the only one I know who appreciates my baking.
-Pinky
P.S., Please return my Tupperware"

TASLI (to self): "Pinky left this? This must be a trick; we're hardly friends"

TASLI (eyeing treat; out loud): "...only one way to find out"

[Tasli eats a treat "Hm"]

...To be continued! D:

Was Pinky's present a trick or a treat? Will Tasli return Pinky's Tupperware?
Oh, the suspense! D:

Pencil...

The featured pencil is named 'Surprise' and is numbered '854' ...I dunno a thing about it. ^^

The pencil is coated with a bright red lead paint with white pin stripes along its edges. In that way, it's very similar to pencils from American Pencils Co's 'Splendor' line (though this in no way means the pencils are related).

The 'Surprise' hasn't any ferrule. At first I thought the pencil may've had a topper, but there's no evidence of one having fallen or broken off (ie, no scratches or missing paint beyond what's normal/expected to see on a vintage pencil).

My theory is this pencil may've come with (or was intended to use with) one of those 'Surprise Picture Books' from the mid 20th century.
The aforementioned books had pages that appeared blank until one rubbed a pencil over them, revealing the surprise illustration.

...I actually had a vintage 'Surprise Picture Book' when I was a toddle (probably around four years old or so ...and that book likely necessitated one of my first uses of a pencil). ^^

PAGE 2

Time for part 2 of Tasli's Treat.

A new day has come. Seems Tasli has just told Gene about Pinky's gift (let's see what happens)...

GENE (winking; half-joking): "Just because you liked the present doesn't mean it wasn't intended as a trick or some kind of experiment, Tasli.
I mean, it's Pinky's baking we're talking about, and I know you'll eat almost anything!"

TASLI (confident): "All I know is *I ate them all, and I didn't get sick or die ...and I couldn't get Mom to return Pinky's tub for me. Too bad I dunno where Pinky lives, eh?"

*I somehow forgot to write this in ...I don't call these quickies for nothing!

GENE (encouraging): "C'mon, Tasli. I know Pinky's building, just not her apartment number. We can ask Mimi; she and Pinky are friends"

TASLI (sighful): "Fine"

GENE: "Cool! I'll start towards Mimi's. You get Pinky's tub and meet me there, ok?"

[later, at Mimi's]

GENE: "What luck, eh, Tasli?"

MIMI (cheerful): "Hi, guys!"

PINKY: "Hey, Tasli. Did you enjoy your treats?"

...TO BE CONTINUED! D:

HYPOTHETICALWATCHER: "Ok, let me spoil it now---Tasli's not going to turn green, the world won't explode, and nothing stupid is going to happen. Pinky just gave Tasli some legit treats ...that you're not going to describe. Am I right?"

No, it's leading up to something.

HYPOTHETIALWATCHER: "Presuming you don't lose interest half way through and abandon it for two years"

Touche.

Anyway, again, this stupid comic IS leading to something. Without giving too much away, the end will reflect some ideas Miss Ice Cream and I've shared about how to develop Pinky as a character. That's all I'll say (for now).

...Wasn't it like really ominous and cool how I put 'for now' in parentheses?

HYPOTHETICALWATCHER: "No. Honestly, your grammar is awful. You use more parentheses and ellipses in one paragraph than most use in a lifetime of writing"

Thx!

Pencil...

The featured pencil is a 'Canada-Centennial' from Venus pencil Co. This pencil is dated 1967. 1967 was,

"...the centenary of Canadian Confederation and celebrations were held throughout the nation. The most prominent event was Expo 67 in Montreal, the most successful World's Fair ever held up to that time, and one of the first events to win international acclaim for the country"

-Wikipedia (as of 11/30/2022)

SOURCE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1967_in_Canada

In 1967 when this pencil was made, Venus Pencil Co (formerly American Pencil Co.) was owned by Faber-Castell.
So this pencil was a German-owned, *American-made specimen for a Canadian celebration! :D

*Actually, this one COULD have been made in Canada, but the pencil doesn't say

HYPOTHETICALWATCHER: "Boring. Why'd you feature this pencil here; what do Tasli's treats have to do with Canada?

Oh, I featured this one because it kinda matches Pinky's Tupperware ...and I noted I used 'Eh' twice in the script. ^^

HYPOTHETICALWATCHER: "You're going to Hell"

Nuh-uh! Saved by grace! :D

HYPOTHETICALWATCHER: "..."

TO BE CONTINUED...

[Later...]

Gene and Tasli are returning to their apartment building...

GENE: "So, Pinky wanted you to reyrn her Tupperware just so she could tell you she likes you ...who'd've thought?"

TASLI: "I can't say I saw it coming; I didn't think I was her type"

GENE: "But is she YOUR type?"

TASLI: "I'unno---I'm open"

Meaning Tasli hasn't really thought about it before but is now gathering his thoughts. :3

The two continue on, into the sunset ...a fitting metaphor. :3

The featured pencil is a vintage ad pencil for 'The Inquirer', a newspaper that ISN'T a tabloid, but should be: https://www.inquirer.com/

*chuckles* wonder what kind of cook she is to have all of her homemade treats left over.  

Cute.

lol Not an especially good one. Could be that Pinky has 'some' talent, though her tastes lie in the exotic.

This intrigues me... someone actually being nice to Tasli lol. :3

But seriously, I love meself a nice cliffhanger.

What could it be... exploding treats? An incredibly sour treat? A concoction that'll seal his big mouth for a while? The suspense is killing me. Much like the way the treat may end up killing Tasli....... 's mood ;3

Or it could just be a delicious treat and me and Tasli are just two untrustworthy fools lol.

Geoff is cute indeed (I imagine my watchers resemble their avatars).

Looking at his (default) avatar, I like to give some character to it by imaging the paintbrush is its tail ...now you can't unsee it (and neither can Geoff). ;)

Mystery treats are a mystery! Just hope he doesn't lose a tooth or worse on them.

I vagely remember seeing one of those "mystery" books a long time ago but that's about it. Is it anything like the book where you had to use a brush and wipe a thin sheet of water over the area to bring out the image? Or the one where you wet the page and it colors up? Cause those were cool. :D

Also was that your very first introduction to the mysterious world of pencils? If so neat!
Wish I could remember MY first encounter with a pencil. "They" probably wiped my memory so
I wouldn't tell the world what "THEY" looked like! O.O!

No, those were watercolor books that showed you the images (you could run a paint brush wetted only with water to make the color appear).
The surprise books had seemingly blank pages you had to rub a pencil over to see the picture (kinda like rubbing a tombstone).

Huh.
I'm gonna have to check that out now cause I've honestly never heard of them.

Interesting.
If they made one of Woody they must have been somewhat popular during their time.
And yet I've never heard of them. But then I just recently discovered dirt so there is that. :D

Whaddya mean "he's open"? I thought he was infatuated with Miss Ice Cream?

On the other hand, what did i expect from a young boy... Especially Tasli.
IceAgeChippies

The problem with Miss Ice Cream is she isn't one of my OCs, so I don't have much control over her.

The real Miss Ice Cream and I decided it would be better for Tasli to seek female attention from another character. Pinky seemed the best choice. :3
Gashren

Oh yeah, that makes sense.
IceAgeChippies

She likes my characters and so forth---she's made dozens of fan arts for me, but the fact is, since she left FurAffinity (and the internet in general), she's almost impossible to get into contact with.
We communicate via email, but replies come in spurts: several may take place in a day, but are then followed by weeks or months of silence.
It just wasn't practical for me to run ideas through with her, so I (effectively) had the Miss Ice Cream character dissolve into the ether, leaving Tasli 'open' for another. :3

The only thing left, the second place in the arcade game (as Tasli had beaten her highscore)...

I had to let Miss Ice Cream go, as her character (IRL) belongs to another person.

And I thought you had permission to use her, the owners account is closed after all

I do, but it's complicated.

Others have mentioned it; I'll need to make an announcement :p
