Previous TBFGK 88 Next TBFGK 90 [edit]

Panel 1

Against the black background of Thinkspace, the Archon floats above the level of Parson's head.[edit]

Archon: May I have your name, rank, and side, please?

Parson Gotti: Parson Gotti, Lord Hamster. Chief Warlord to Stanley the Tool, of Gobwin Knob.

Archon: Thank you, Lord Hamster.

Panel 2

The Archon has brown eyes and pink lips. She holds her right hand to her ear, as if speaking into an invisible telephone.[edit]
Archon: Please hold for Charlie. [edit]

Panel 3

Parson is shown from behind, still wearing the red jumpsuit and highlighted by a spotlight from directly above.[edit]

Charlie: Good morning, Lord Hamster!

I'm Charlie, Overlord of Charlescomm.

Parson Gotti: Um, hey.

Charlie: May I call you "Parson?"

Panel 4

Parson is looking up into the distance, perhaps hoping to catch a glimpse of Charlie.[edit]

Parson Gotti: If that... doesn't give you some strange power over me, sure.

Charlie: Interesting.

I like the way you think, Parson.

Panel 5

A closeup view shows Parson's gaze still directed upwards.[edit]

Charlie: May I call you "mind slave?"

Parson Gotti: Funny.

Charlie: M'glad you think so!

Panel 6

The scene shifts to an exterior shot of Charlie's stronghold, a bright blue castle-fort topped by the Arkendish.[edit]

Charlie: So. What can I do for you?

Are we talking surrender terms here, or...?

...no. I think maybe you've got something more interesting in mind.

Panel 7

The scene returns to Parson standing in the spotlight. He is standing up straight, hands on hips, projecting confidence.[edit]

Parson Gotti: Yeah.

I wanna cut a deal.

Charlie: Sure, sure!

Let's hear your pitch.

Panel 8

Parson has brought the Mathamancy Bracer up to his chest, displaying it for Charlie to see.[edit]

Parson Gotti: How are you, uh...

How're you doing for Mathamancers these days, Charlie?

Panel 9

The scene shifts again. A flight of dwagons sweeps towards the panel. In front is the armored red dwagon Stanley rides, flanked by a blue, green, and brown. A dozen more are in the background flying over mountain tops.[edit]

Stanley the Tool: Hey, you.


Panel 10

Stanley is shown close up, looking over his shoulder at the Foolamancer on the saddle behind him.[edit]

Stanley the Tool: Foolamancer!

Wake up.

Foolamancer: Nuncle?

Panel 11

The Foolamancer is seen from Stanley's perspective, his gray-pallored face visible under his purple hooded robe. He is glancing up into the sky, away from Stanley.[edit]

Foolamancer: The clouds methought would open and show riches ready to drop upon me that, when I waked, I cried to dream again...[1]

Stanley the Tool: Whatever.

Try the veil again, kid.

Panel 12

The veil attempt has turned the dwagons into parade balloons. The most prominent one is in the shape of a clown dressed in red and yellow[2]. Another is a yellow creature with long cone-shaped ears.[3] A third is a red dog.[4] A fourth, just barely visible at the edge of the frame, shows a bulging eye on a green creature.[5][edit]

Stanley the Tool: Yeeeeah.

I think we better work on fixing you.

Foolamancer: Where the greater malady is fix'd, the lesser is scarce felt.[6]
