The Alliance of Appliantology!

LONG AGO IN A DISTANT LAND..

The people were happy. They had not a care in the world. They thought their beloved appliances would always behave. They woke up in the morning to the quiet hum of refrigerators, keeping their daily meals nice and fresh. They used washers and dryers to clean clothes to pristine condition. They used the microwaves to heat their food quickly and efficiently. They thought the appliances would always be there for them, always making their lives easier.

.....They thought wrong.

Suddenly, one day, as if from nowhere, the appliances attacked!

The Washer began spewing water all over their beautiful laundry rooms:

The Dryer began spitting fire and smoke everywhere:

Microwaves took to the skies, shocking the citizens in horrible flocks:

Micros

Fridges stopped cooling the food, turning it into gookus, and then spewed noxious odors into everyone's faces:

"OH THE HUMANITY! IS THERE NO ONE TO SAVE US?! IS THERE NO ONE WITH THE SKILL TO STOP THESE EVIL MACHINES?!", the citizens cried!

Have no fear, good people! Your heroes are here!

Introducing....

The Alliance of Appliantology

"Fighting atrocious appliances with aptitude!"

This Troop of Techs scour the land, searching for any disobedient appliance, doing battle with them, and turning them back into the good machines they were made to be!

First up, we have the Appliance Technician himself, Walter:

Walter

Walter is a monkey. His weapon is a katana, mixed with a flashlight. Good for slashing and scaring off those appliance monsters who are afraid of the light.

Next is Weswayne, or just Wayne:

Wayne

Wayne is a seahorse, wielding a screwdriver-shooting crossbow. Nothing wrong with a ranged weapon!

Here's Scottthewolf, or more appropriately, Scott the Lion:

Scott The Lion

Scott is smartly using meter leads, one of a tech's most powerful tools, he's using them as axes, but I guess that gets the job done!

Here's some guy named Smashycomman, or just Smashy if you're confused on what a "comman" is:

Smashy

He uses a giant screwdriver as a warhammer. There's a better use for that, kid!

Don't forget about DanInKansas, or maybe just Dan:

Dan

Dan is a beaver, who uses a shield and spear with pliers on the end. Stick 'em with the pokey end!

Last, but certainly not least, is our very own DurhamAppliance, who's gonna go by the very serious name of Durham:

Durham

Durham is the highest-ranking member of the group so far. Yes, he's a pink unicorn, but don't let that make you think he won't smack yer teeth out with his mages' staff.

Our citizens are saved! With their incredible knowledge of the inner-workings of these dastardly monsters, the Alliance of Appliantology takes them down one-by-one, turning them back into the hard-working and wonderful machines they should be. The citizens are very thankful! The day is saved!

Want to be in the Alliance? Here's one way:

BEGIN YOUR TRAINING

Ok, so, I decided to do this after making a "What animal would you be?" thread on the 40-watt club sub-forum. What started as just a dumb question got me thinking about how fun it would be to actually draw these guys as these animals... then one thing lead to another and here we are. This took about 2 months or so. Having a kid makes it so you really don't have much time anymore! Anyway, hope you guys like it!

Wow, Tyler, that's pretty amazing that you drew all these! Great schtick, too! I think you missed your calling as a cartoonist. Between your art work and your imaginative story lines, you could easily come up with regular comic strip that may get picked up for syndication. Nice marketing plug for the Academy, too!

Thank you guys very much! I'm glad you like them!

Sorry if it's weird if I made everyone into animal-people... I'm terrible at drawing real people :)

And thank you, Samurai! I hope to be able to do something like this someday on the side... We'll see.

If anyone wants to have their own character, just let me know! Just need an animal, weapon, and tool. Or I can make it up if you want. :)

So I've though of a couple of villains but have yet to name him. The guy that steals the tech sheets and the bad installer. Trying to come up with a good name for them.

The gumshoe googler.

The guy who knows it all from looking it up on google and says "I thought that was it, and I could have done that"

The invoice investigator.

How much was it for you to put that clamp on the vent hose? So on and so forth.

The driveway disabler.

For when you have to park 100 ft away because the homeowner has figured out how to make a scion take up 4 whole damn spaces. Or it's full of water and red mud.
