Just something fun I thought we could do.
Little known to many readers of Watchmen, Rorschach did not perish when Dr. Manhattan raised his hand and seemingly blasted him into oblivion. Perhaps it was the last few sparks of humanity in the good doctor, or perhaps Manhattan had ceased to care for humanity so much that he didn't fully concentrate on killing Rorschach, but Rorschach lived on.
Rorschach lived on.
Cursed (or perhaps blessed?) with Manhattan Molecules™ coursing through his body, Rorschach instead traveled the seemingly infinite amount of dimensions and worlds, and bore witness to a series of strange and mind-opening events.
Rorschach, true to form, kept journal entries of all his travels but failed to keep the pages safely secured in their binding. Members of the worlds have collected the scattered pages in an effort to piece together Rorschach's travels.
This is his story.
Basically you are to post a Rorschach journal entry that details his travel to a different world without giving the world away (If you choose to, you can give the answer in your post in the form of spoiler text, done by making the text color black, for those who are new to our forums.) The world Rorschach travels to can be from a TV show, a video game, a book, a historical event in our world, anything you like. Needless to say, these entries must be written in Rorschach's voice.
These threads usually yield some pretty funny/sad/sweet entries, and I'm interested what entries WCMers can come up with!
My favorite one from a previous thread:
Rorschach's Journal. Date: Unknown. Location: America
Landed in Hollywood film lot trashheap, newspapers revealing location as America. Scrambled out of trash pile and tried to tell closest film executive of Veidt's plan, detailing all events that had transpired. Film executive assured he would do everything in his power to make sure that there would be "no squid".
Left in blue flash feeling considerably relieved.
I'll start off with one:
Rorschach's Journal. Date: Unknown, afternoon upon arrival. Location: A swamp.
Blue flash brought yet another world, landed face first in swampy mud. Mask quickly got wet and muddy. Hurm. Don't know how long costume can hold up with all these transportations.
Heard banjo playing in background and sloshed through ankle-deep water to find source. Hid behind a tree and poked head around to try and find source.
What was singing will haunt dreams forever. Anthropomorphic frog cheerily singing in English about "rainbows" and "connections". Obvious homosexual innuendo apparent, no further investigation needed. Also sung praise of "lovers, dreamers", only serving to reinforce frog's despicable liberal leanings. Was this horrifying end result of Veidt's plan? Did nuclear war eventually ravage planet, leaving nothing behind but radioactive, liberal, homosexual mutant amphibians?
Rushed forward to put an end to abomination, but blue flash engulfed eyesight once again, marking departure from world. Am viewing next destination with dread if similar at all to previous.
World: The Muppet Movie, with Kermit the Frog singing "Rainbow Connection".
