Ink Dupes #9: Organics Studio and Robert Oster

Robert Oster has two lines of ink: Signature and inkArt.ink. The former is readily available. The latter doesn’t appear to be available currently. I used the Signature ink for my comparison, but, for giggles, I included a chromatography strip of the inkArt.ink (IAI).

For those familiar with Organics Studio, you’ll know that at any given time, a certain ink may or may not be readily available. For that reason, I’m dubbing it “usually available.”

The Better Burrow arc from my Lone Traveler compendium: The Lone Traveler encounters the Burrow before it was expanded. Maybe it can be made into a safer and more comfortable home for this version of the Weasleys. It’s amazing how much a building can change history.

Time Travel

I came across a fun writing prompt the other day. The question posed was: If you could travel back to any era, would you and which one?

My immediate thought was, “Yes, of course,” but as I thought about it, I realized there were some qualifiers.

  1. Can I come back?
  2. How long would I have to stay?
  3. Would the visit be observation only, or could I interact with the people?
  4. How well would I be prepared for the era I visited?
  5. Can I visit more than one era?
  6. What social position would I hold during my visit?
