Ah hah!  Luv it!  I can belt out Patsy Cline (but not Kitty Wells) and know all the lyrics to Waylon's songs.

 

Holy Cow. Do you have red curly hair and was the band "Remedy"?

Traffic can be pretty when you're parked up and waiting to pick up your lad from Spider-Man 2.

Nice to hear you're getting your fingers dirty. You'll be mixing inks and grinding your own nibs before you know it  :)

 

My 45 is one of the most reelable pens I own. In fact all three of my Parkers start first time every time no matter how long they've been left or what they have in them.
(Just wished the my 45 wasn't brushed stainless steel  :wacko: )

Cars are good. No distraction  ;)

A quick and dirty addition to the story.  The "paper" is hand laid cotton and is like drawing on a paper towel!

Hi Tas,

 

a short abstract of the Bird wars story till now.

 

 

Main protagonists so far:

 

Eagle (introduced by me):

Austrian snooty nosed horny aristrocrat, sees himself as King of pen birds.

Seagull (introduced by Line):

Norway viking warrior bird, started the conflict with Eagle, hiding from Eagle.

Turkey (introduced by Prvt. Toter):

American, possible NSA agent, now chief engineer on board of the Eagle 1

Dodo (introduced by Irrigger):

Ex shop owner in North Africa, brilliant organizer, now supply officer on board of the Eagle 1

Camel (introduced by Attila):

Ex customs officer in North Africa, possible spy, possible Middle Earth creature, now helmsman on board of the Eagle 1

Mrs. Frosty (introduced by Amber):

Horny Snowwoman, killed Mr. Frosty (gave him a last final blow job), mother of Bozo, located in Las Vegas

Bozo (introduced by Amber):

Naive young son of Mrs. Frosty,  Flamethrower Girl has sexual power over him

Inky (introduced by Amber):

Witty Ink drop creature, reporter, knows always almost everything.

Flamethrower Girl (introduced by me):

Cougar, had an affair with Mr. Frosty which led to his termination, plays with Bozo

Uncle Gru (introduced by me):

Zombie snowman, relative of of the Frosty family

David I. Frankenstein (introduced by me):

Body transplant expert, want to enhance Bozo (nose)

Skippy (introduced by me):

Boatswain´s Mate on board of the Eagle 1, does not trust Camel

Sandmarine (introduced by Tringle)

Sub which is able to dive in sand deserts. (Turkey still has to modify the dingy)

Swan (introduced by Plistumi)

Opponent of Eagle

Stabbed Snowman (introduced by Plistumi)

Cold case, snowman stabbed with FP´s,

Pelikan (introduced by me):

Opponent of Eagle

Raven (introduced by me):

Knight on a three wheeler, possibly died due to alcoholic poisoning after Seagull refused to accept his help

 

 

Short Story summary:

Eagle claimed himself as King Pen of Birds. Seagull poked fun at him. Swan and Pelikan did not accept Eagles claim.

Eagle wanted to kill Seagull, Started with his plane to Norway, Later he discovered his love for Seagull (or at least a sexual attraction and wanted to take her with him as one of his concubines). Due to a navigion glitch he stranded in North Africa. Some suspect Turkey to sabotaged Eagle´s plane.

There he met Dodo in his shop, Eagle realized immediately Dodo´s organisational talent.

Some skirmish with Turkey, which led finally to a "feather" transplant for Turkey.

Seagull is hiding from Eagle.

Flamethrower Girl had an affair with Mr. Frosty. Mrs. Frosty killed him (gave him his last blow job).

Flamethrower Girl wanted to kill Mrs. Frosty, but finally started a sexual relationship with Bozo (she liked especially his nose).

Bozo lost his nose in jail.

David I. Frankenstein wanted to enhance Bozo.

A with FP´s stabbed Snowman was found, no evidence that the Frosty family was involved, currently a cold case.

Eagle fell in love with Mrs. Frosty and wanted to visit her in Las Vegas (to take her with him).

He hired a crew, Dodo organized a submarine.

They met Camel at the local airport.

The Eagle 1 was on it´s way to Las Vegas (sunk a excursion ship, sighted a  mermaid, Manatee, turtle,.....)

Due to not yet known circumstances the Eagle 1 passed a trans-dimensional gate and is now in Middle Earth.

 

To be continued. :)

 

(Sorry if I missed something)

 

 

 

@ Amber

Wouldn´t it be a good idea to copy all story related pictures to an own "Bird War" thread?

For people which did not followed the story the last year it is very hard to follow as the posts are burried deep in this thread.

Hi Coop,

interesting Hobbit project. ;)

 

Hi Tas,

again a great picture, I love it! :)

 

Hi Irrigger,

great to see you back with a new picture, well done.

It seems that Dodo is already adapting to the new situation quickly. :)

Hi Attila,

I don't see it as a mistake.
Every contributor has the right to give the story a new direction. :)
I always enjoy your contribution!
I'm sure this will get interesting.

I'm keen to know what's in the package Dodo picked up, and how the story will continue...

Thanks.
As for your 912. I'm sorry :mellow: 

I wished I had waited. I ordered a Custom 91 F nib ages ago (bargain on ebay) and whilst it's really, really gorgeous I know in the bak of my mind / heart I should have saved up for the 912.

Ptero I think you forgot the crazy poodle that came across the wormhole at the same time and ended up on a soccer field in the middle east.

 

He resents that!

Oh, that blue(?) 91 looks awesome! I don't know how different the bigger nib can be though, but some special nibs are only available in the #10,#15 size...this is why I went with the 912.

I was so excited to receive some good news about it....well...this wasn't exactly that :lol:
Taizo at Engeika said Pilot has some delays with production...

For that money I'd jump on it, I paid €70 for it ( which, according to the XE currency converter amounts to roughly $99 ) and I don't feel ripped off. 
Sucks that you have to wait another month to get your hands on the Pilot. I think we can all feel your pain when it comes to waiting for a new pen
