Civilised idea. :D


This suggestion has the dragon claw-print of approval. :D

Which is more profitable: supplying caf-fiends with bottomless mugs or Supers with utility belts I wonder.

Bad (but potentially profitable) idea: pitching a WA series idea for a comedy harem anime centered on Thunderbird and his hangers-on, with Chaka only being introduced at the beginning of the third season.

I'm actually embarrassed to suggest this. Especially since it would be child's play to make it actually happen, were the Canon Cabal shameless enough to try. I'm pretty sure the first two seasons could be generated by an automated script-writing program fed with existing harem series scripts. The hardest part would be making Scott come off as enough of an oblivious boy-scout without it wrecking suspension of disbelief.

(Conversely, the CC could retain some shred of dignity and self-respect by talking Shannen McMickens into writing the script; I'm guessing the "High Priestess of the Harem-nomicon" - yes, she calls herself that - would jump at the chance to write one herself, and she might even do it on spec.)

Out, damnéd Spot! Bad Doggy!

While you could charge more for a utility belt, the number of coffeeholics compared to the number of superheroes suggests the caffeine route would be way more profitable

I love watching their innocent little faces smiling happily as they trip gaily down the garden path, before finding the pit with the rusty spikes.

Err, I think you mean Raptor.
At least, I hope you mean Raptor...

Of course that depends on how much he can scale the production, as devises they don't lend themselves to mass production, unless Mobius makes a devise to produce them, and the question there is how far removed from the process can he be for it to still work. If he has to work on each one directly at some point or another, doing more specialized custom work would be more profitable

Of course when Imp finds out about the Mobius belts, I can see her buying one for Chickenhawk and loading it with various gags, such as an umbrella, a hankerchief chain, and so on, Brandy gets ACME stylized items,

Chambers house gift list
From Imp:
Mobius belt for Ryan,
ACME stylized firecrackers for Brandy (if it's the thought that counts...)
painting of Shenanigans up to shenanigans for Melissa
From Ryan:
two Stirling bracelets for Imp--- there's a pun there....

A Nikki who isn't a changeling and ends up in Melville.
A Sidhe who's abducted, maybe probed, by survivors of the Court of Fire, that look a lot like imp.
