Ofmd au where everything is the same except that rattus rattus horrible histories pops up from the corner with his little signs every now and then to give fun pirate facts or to tell the audience whether something is a real thing that pirates did or that a character was a real person etc. Nobody notices this except for Buttons

Ben Willbond is a fascinating man because if I passed him in the street I would assume he worked in a windowless grey cubicle, if I spoke to him I would assume he was a teacher or something, he gets up on those panels and acts so Normal, but then he goes and puts on a costume and the camera turns on and he becomes the weirdest motherfucker on television

It’s taken a bit longer to finish than intended, but here at least is another Ghosts fan comic. I’ve simplified everyone a bit compared to the first one, but such is the nature of comics.

i love how horrible histories has Lore. mike peabody and sam peabody are time travelling news presenter siblings, but here's the plot twist. there's another guy, and he has no relation to either of them. they're a time travelling trio, and from mike peabody's pov he's time-travelling with his sister and this random ass guy who pours tea on his face and is in love with his sister.
don't even get me started on the historical paramedics - they're a time-travelling queer couple who get weirdly invested in the medicinal side of the eras they travel to, so much so that they'll stop by to pour buttered spiders on someone or to beat the shit out of them with a bone.
we've got d.i.bones, who got demoted for some random reason that none of us know. do you think these time travelers have ever crossed paths? the six idiots need to do a crossover episode where all the time-travelers of horrible histories end up in the same time and same place. that's be so fucking funny

Horrible Histories Was So Goddamn Funny
Okay, so. Most of the jokes in Horrible Histories were pretty surface level. Which is fine, because ‘surface level’ is not the same thing as ‘unfunny’, and also it was for children. But every so often there was something that only got funnier the more you thought about it.
Tumblr media
In Horrible Histories, sketches were often based around a show-specific trope I call the Unremarkable Time Traveler. A sketch would be set in a modern day school, or hospital, or pet shop, or whatever, and the whole thing would revolve around someone from the past showing up and trying to get the modern people to do things the historical way. So an Ancient Greek doctor’s working at the hospital, or the school’s hired a Victorian headmaster, that sort of thing. The whole joke of these sketches is very British - it’s an Absurdity interacting with the Mundane, but the Mundane’s reactions to the Absurdity never address the core strangeness of the situation (i.e. an Ancient Athenian practicing medicine in a 21st century hospital), but instead only object to the inconveniences it causes (i.e. his outdated medical practices not working). You see this sort of thing all the time in British comedies, especially classic ones. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is built on this.
Tumblr media
So when you first watch the Historical Paramedics sketches, you have every reason to believe that this is just another Unremarkable Time Traveler situation. Two guys claiming to be from the Stuart/Victorian/etc. era show up, try their weird old medicine on people, and leave. Except.
Tumblr media
EXCEPT. 
Tumblr media
In the other Unremarkable Time Traveler cases, they’re never the same people. It’s different every time. But with the Paramedics, it’s always the same two guys. Now, you might say ‘hey, no! This show stars a troupe of character actors, they’re constantly doubling up on roles, it’s just the same actors playing different characters!’ To which I say no! Do not presume you know more than me about this! It is, without a doubt, the same two guys! Because the Historical Paramedics have names:

(They are also, apparently, a couple)
Horrible Histories has tonnes of running characters that transcend era, but most of them are modern-era characters (Mike Peabody, Cliff Whiteley, the host of Historical Fashion Fix, etc.) who talk about or interact with the Time Travelers, or in Mike’s case, are themselves Time Travelers. The Grim Reaper, as an immortal being, is basically the only exception (and I guess the Shouty Man, but he’s really just a representation of a concept). Which makes Jeff and Nigel a bit of an anomaly, being named, recurring characters... from all manner of historical eras. What’s up with that? 
Tumblr media
Perhaps they are immortals, like the Grim Reaper, living through all of history, but popping in and out of our modern era from time to time, by whatever method the other Time Travelers also use? Could be, but I don’t think so. Jeff and Nigel are uniquely aware that their actions are not appreciated in the modern era, as demonstrated by the fact that they always run away before the real paramedics arrive. So I propose a different theory:
The Historical Paramedics are actually modern-era characters.
Jeff and Nigel are not Unremarkable Time Travelers. They are, in fact, history enthusiasts who have always lived in the late 20th/early 21st century, have somehow got their hands on an ambulance scanner, and, instead of handing it in to the authorities, are using it to harass the sick and injured while wearing silly costumes. 
Tumblr media Tumblr media Tumblr media
In other words, these two are perhaps the truest embodiments of Be Gay, Do Crime in all of televised media. 
Tumblr media
This show was so great, you guys.
(It is, admittedly, the tiniest, slightest bit possible that none of this was intentional and I have brainrot. But I don’t think that’s the case, do you? And even if it is, this idea still makes an already funny sketch that much funnier, doesn’t it? Yes. Of course it does. I knew you’d understand.)
