superartie: (death of a salesman)
[personal profile] superartie
Okay, so, um, just to let folks know what's the what, here.



Artie is an aluminum siding salesman, this week.

This is actually a canon thing. In canon, he becomes a salesman when coerced by a member in good standing of the International Adult Conspiracy, after he's been convinced that Little Pete, his best friend, doesn't want him around any more.

It all had to do with permanent press pants. Yeah, I know.

So he'll be in and out of places, attempting to sell siding this week. Hopefully not while injuring people. GOB was totally a special case in that regard.

Why is he a salesman now? I'm sure it all has to do with him managing to hide so well he couldn't find himself last week. How do we get him back to his Artie-self?

Well, in canon, this was a long, epic process involving the Artie-light, his favorite smell (tire air), his favorite sound (armpit farts), and being told that, yes, Little Pete still needed him, and was, in fact, in dire trouble at the hands of the evil villain, Paper Cut.

I watched this show religiously in my youth. You now know why I'm the way I am today.

So, in Fandom, I'm thinking folks will pretty much need to a) figure out that this isn't just some elaborate Dada demonstration, and b) remind him of his sworn, sacred duty to protect Fandom from the evil forces of emo.

Preferably after (or during) his Friday Dada workshop.

Thanks!

ETA for the Dadaists This means that this is pretty much the one week when Artie would give people detention. Let me know if you'd be up for having detention with V this weekend.

When I saw you starting to do this, I died of joy. So much love, so many cookies. Seriously.

That icon kind of scares me. *stares*

Will he still be attracted to Funk?

I was just thinking that perhaps that whoever is involved in the campaign to get him back might use Funk music to try to track him down. Or, alternatively, use a whammy bar to slow him down.

Touche. Does anyone know about the funk, by the same token? I seem to remember one time when Artie was affected by both in FH canon for some reason...

*nods* So I guess it's all a moot point.

Let this be a reminder that it's all fun and games until somebody gets hurt. Unless that somebody is GOB. Then it's when the fun and games start.

Seriously, though, this is brilliant, brilliant stuff. I'm glad I could be two parts of the kickoff.

If loving The Adventures of Pete & Pete to the point of obsession is wrong I DO NOT WANT TO BE RIGHT.

River has never had detention, so she'd be confused if she got it.

Oooooh. And V keeps a lot of secrets, so that could make for some fun interaction :)
