It's been a while since we've done one of these. Write something using the five words in the the thread's title.

Words:
Spittoon, Vague, Sentinel, Test, Reverse

Rules:
  • It can be a sentence, paragraph, poem, short story, ballad, ransom note, one-act play, tech manual, etc; anything to do with written word
  • Use any form of the words (all tenses, compounds, and hyphenations accepted)
  • Be responsible for your own content
  • Be creative
  • Must include full descriptions of spittoons
  • Does not have to encompass TECS or the fandom, but it's highly encouraged
Ready, go.

From her perch atop the vineyard's highest castle, the sentinel saw tourists taste-testing their wine, then expelling it into spittoons. With a vague sense of unease, she turned her gaze to the parking lot. There, a latecomer put their car into reverse, but overshot the parking space and struck the car behind them. The guard shook her head. That person must have failed their driving test, she thought.

Although his memory of the event was vague, Tenchi's nemesis Walter Wiley was inspired to create a robot sentinel and test it in town. Wiley figured one of these days people wouldn't recoil in fear of hulking automatons but today was clearly not that day. A group of men happily seeing how far away they could spit into a spittoon from stopped their contest and stared. One of them grabbed the spittoon and threw it at the robot who simply batted it away. All cars driving on the street hit reverse and started to drive backwards which never ends well as crashes quickly ensued. The whole town blamed Wiley and he swore revenge...

The sentinel stood at his post, the long nights a test of his patience. He heard a vague sound, and then a loud crash. Looking into the next room, he saw a monkey playing with the artifacts. The monkey looked up at the sentinel. Laughing, it dropped a spittoon from from the shelf and screamed as it shattered. The monkey then reversed its path and climbed back up to the open window.

    Just thought I should give a heads up about this. Those "ACME Detective Agency" shirts from Walmart.com . I finally decided to order one today as a late Christmas gift to myself because I was given a gift card for the store. Those shirts through Walmart have unknown shipping restrictions through the site. But get this? Same provider on Amazon is selling the shirt and there the shipping isn't restricted. ... Not because of ordering a T-Shirt but this isn't the first time I've seen P.O. Box rejection. .. Yeah, the gift card was useless on Amazon of course but I didn't want to give up. My new shirt is due to hit my box on the 7th.😎

    I'm not sure it even had a rating on Amazon but it looked just about the same as the Walmart one.

    @Lucy , I need to make another short to help with the buffer for Comic Fury. The best idea to quickly producing a comic would be the B & W route again. Already I have a basic plot figured out. I have no idea if you've read Vocal Canvases or not. But in that story the roots of ACME are touched on for the AU. What would you think of a story set in 1901 in India using Jocelyn & Patrick and Raj Mahal? Part of the plot idea is coming from a Classic IG story.

    Something those of you who follow my work might get a kick from in my forgetfulness. The start of Loaded Stone was the last time I thought I'd ever be drawing Jocelyn in comic presentation. Because she's being brought back that way for the short. ... In character design she is the only one of the whole AU I have to remember how to have hand use dominance. I forgot which side here before looking back at older drawings to make the correction. This ghost arm in rough art clearly will not be in the final presentation of page 1.
