Disclaimer: Not everyone from the Deep South is a member of the Klan. Ok, I may know one or two. But still....

Game 17, Chain C

swmabie started this chain with the most harmless, innocent, and - yes - cliched opening sentence in the history of English novel-writing, straight from Edward Bullwer-Lytton himself....
It was a dark and stormy night; the rain fell in torrents, except at occasional intervals, when it was checked by a violent gust of wind which swept up the streets (for it is in London that our scene lies), rattling along the housetops, and fiercely agitating the scanty flame of the lamps that struggled against the darkness.

And bearing that in mind, Emile's picture makes perfect sense....


erak sees something else entirely....
Londoners' worst fears had been confirmed: the dementors had joined the Klan.

purplewurple illustrates for Rowling...


BaSL skews older....
While in London, the Nazg├╗l dressed up as KKK members.

bjhendricks illustrates for Tolkien...


puckhead addresses the white (hooded) elephant in the room....
It was a truly sad day when the Ku Klux Klan arrived in London armed with swords by horse, and, God forbid, also by dragon.

spleen desecrates my childhood memories....


Quixote171 goes there....
When the KKK, led by the Grand Dragon himself, attacked Big Ben, children everywhere were upset.

egorjLileli brings in the UN....


& Sungarden3 refers back to the original "epyc moment"....
Children across the world were saddened by the new direction Harry Potter was taking in J. K. Rowling's latest: Klansmentors Unleashed! The burning of Big Ben and the Muggle World.

I feel like the clock in my first EPYC drawing ended up in the wrong chain:

I kept saying to myself, "Certainly someone will get rid of the Klan. Certainly someone will go somewhere else with it...."

Of course, then the "Deep South of England" popped into my head, and that line from Men in Tights.

Funny as hell. And after Puff showed up, I thought, "someone, please make a pun about the Grand Dragon. Please?" And my prayers were answered....

Pure and utter gold, IMO.

I didn't know what Dementors were, so I did a google image search. I wish I'd searched some more... had I known that they have a mouth but no eyes, I'd drawn the Klan masks differently.

Don't worry about it--I bet they got their hoods second hand.
