Tom Russell proudly presents an
UNTOLD TALE of PANTS RABBIT LAD
Pants Rabbit Lad in
June 29, 1998.
"Hello again, Nina," said Pants Rabbit Lad to the
Ultimate Ninja's visiting eight-year-old niece,
careful to give her a twenty-foot berth, per the
Ninja's instructions. "What's with the party hat?"
"Oh, we're having an author's day party," said
Author's day, you say? What's author's day? Well,
I'll tell you.
Much like some Catholics celebrate both a birthday
and a saint's day, characters in the Looniverse
celebrate (1) their birthdate, (2) the day their
author actually created them, (3) their saint's day,
if applicable, and (4) the day of their author's
Now, you may ask, what about those unfortunate
characters who do not understand the true nature of
the Looniverse? The ones who are completely unaware
that they are fictional characters created by authors,
authors whose fictional Real World Minus One
counterparts they have fictional conversations with?
Some of them refuse to celebrate author's day.
Others still observe it, even though they view their
in-the-know brethern as ridiculous, superstitious
simps. Why do they still celebrate their author's day
when they don't believe in authors?
The same reason that athiests celebrate Christmas:
presents! ... and parties! ... and that warm, fuzzy
feeling you can only get spending time in the company
of your fellow characters.
"Today's my author's day, too!" said Pants Rabbit
Lad. "Can I join your party?"
Pants Rabbit Lad, Nina: Tom Russell.

"If a comic book, book, movie or novel is not somebody's fantasy
then who wrote it and to whom does it appeal to? In order for a
shared universe to have a widespread appeal, it has to appeal on
a primal level. If somebody says superhero comics are just 'wish
fulfillment' then he needs to explain what is entertainment that
doesn't satisfy our wishes and what satisfaction at all you can get
from it." -- Dr. Martin Phipps
