I had this weird idea a few moments ago, as I lay in bed at 01:45 am: A calendar called “Midnight Faces” which was 12 (and possibly more bonus images) “photos” of kids who had ignored or defied or just not believed the Rule that if you held a silly/ugly face when a clock struck 12 it would stay that way. I thought that hyperrealistic art style of the guy from “Things I have drawn” would work best. Kids like Gertrude Farnsworth. “You are always eight, Gertie. Except when you’re not.”
Or Alexander T. Wallap. “Yes, Lex, The Rule applies even with experimentation. Sorry, kid.”
Laurance Epple. “We push boundaries to learn, yes, but The Rule has strict boundaries that cannot be bent or folded or even bumped. ”
Perhaps some Lore about The Rule, and how to undo it? The history?
I will see if I can contact the artist, and see if he is interested. I don’t want money, just a little credit/internet nod in my direction.
Writing this down so it is seen that it was my idea. Patenting it, so to speak.
