For the Summer Nerd Games June "SuperFan" challenge I did this scene inspired by the song Dr. Alfred Prunesquallor of Gormenghast sings to his sister Irma after he slips a sedative in her drink so she can go to dreamland and be a lady all night long and stop annoying him.  This project was a challenge for me as my first foray into a papercrafted tunnel scene. It made me really appreciate the skills of those who seem to do this so effortlessly.

Heres the song which we must imagine the Doctor singing in his bizarre high-pitched voice:

Come, flick the ulna juggler-wise
And twang the tibia for me!
O Osseous orse, the future lies
Like serum on the sea.

Green fields and buttercups no more
Regale you with delight, no, no!
The tonic tempests leap and pour
Through your white pelvis ever so.

Come, clap your scapulae and twitch
The pale pagoda of your spine,
Removed from lifes eternal itch
What need for iodine?

The Osseous orse sat up at once
And clanged his ribs in Biblic pride.
I fear I looked at him askance
Though he had naught to hide....

No hide at all....just...

And he forgets the rest of the song, but Irma has by now passed out and is carted away on a stretcher....

Thank you, I'm glad!  I put in a few little tidbits for Gormenghast nerds, such as the shark (remember the shark?   Cheesy )
