Allison and Lillia’s handbook for life

Do you have difficulty in social situations? Do you just not know what to do when put on the spot? Luckily, Allison and Wil have put together a convenient handbook that will sit snugly on your bookshelf right next to “How to Win Friends and Influence People”.

  • When old men tell tall tales, don’t hesitate to believe them. Who knows, their wild stories of war-ending treasures might just be true, and if not, at least you got a nice cup of tea for your efforts.
  • When suspicious old ladies offer you a cup of tea, drink it without reservation. Even if she locks you in her cellar, it shouldn’t be too hard to get out. Continue reading “Tuesday Rumble: July 8th”

Allison and Lillia parody episode 2

Allison and Will follow the kidnapper’s aircraft.

Wil: Won’t they see us?

Allison: Don’t worry- main character power is rendering us invisible and inaudible.

They fly on and cross the border- only to get shot at.

Wil: Hey, what happened to main character power?

Allison: It’s okay, everything’s going to plan! I’m just pretending to spin out of control to throw them off our trail! Now I’m just pretending that we’re plummeting towards the ground! Now I’ll pretend to crash!

The plane crashes. Continue reading “Allison and Lillia parody episode 2”

Allison and Lillia parody episode 1

Wil is sitting under the trees, reading a book when a teacher and some younger students approach.

Teacher: Wil, this series is going to be boring if all you do is read books all the time. How about a bit of exposition to explain to viewers what this world is all about?

Wil: Well, there’s not much to say, really- our continent is made up of two countries who have been at war for 130 years over which one is older

Allison’s plane flies in and lands.

(Wil: Damn, it’s Allison- now I’ll have to be a supporting character on her adventures.) Continue reading “Allison and Lillia parody episode 1”
