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.

    ((We'll see if my 'net let's me post... At least for me, for anything I post here, I kind of incorporate most characters from the shows (and what I can find of the games, never played any of them), though I (and, this is just me) try to keep the postings here in a more current-day technology and try to make up characters as I go. I suppose what characters you choose to use depends on if what you write has anything to do with any of the longer-format stories, or if it's a stand-alone. But, yeah, feel free to ask anything, and someone will get back to ya when someone is in here (it seems a majority are US-based, though there are a few 'across the pond').

    ((IRL: Before the night is over, think I'm going to take the laptop for a little wardriving through the building (the laptop is connected as the modem right now)... just tried some Win7 pings, average is over a second, short: 213ms, long: 2909ms. Planning to take care of local ISP when the property tax refund gets here (and hoping for a second Stimulus Check). I can kind of get here with the Obamaphone, but it's nowhere near what the tower or the tablet or even the laptop are capable of.
