Previous TBFGK 142 Next TBFGK 144 [edit]


Panel 1

The volcano where Gobwin Knob stood is silhouetted against the light of the approaching dawn. The mountain profile has a flat plateau with slopes on each side; the speakers are located a bit further uphill.[edit]

Parson Gotti: I killed everybody, Wanda.

Wanda Firebaugh: Yes. Good job.
[edit]

Panel 2

Wanda ascends a staircase, which is now open to the outside. She is holding the Arkenpliers in her right hand. Parson follows a few steps behind. The hand of one corpse and the leg of another lie on the ruined stairway, the rest of the bodies off-panel or buried.[edit]

Parson Gotti: No, I killed... everybody. Our side, their side...

Everybody.

This wasn't self-defense.

This wasn't a general preserving his forces...

This is apocalypse!

Wanda Firebaugh: Hardly the first.
[edit]

Panel 3

Wanda looks back toward Parson and holds up the Arkenpliers.[edit]

Wanda Firebaugh: And for this, it was worthwhile.

Parson Gotti: What, just so you could attune to a booping pair of needle-nose pliers?

Wanda Firebaugh: Yes!

As it was Predicted!
[edit]

Panel 4

The frame shows a closeup view of Wanda's smiling face.[edit]
Wanda Firebaugh: It does seem so long ago. [edit]

Panel 5

Wanda holds the Arkenpliers horizontally in front of her and grins as she looks down at the artifact.[edit]

Wanda Firebaugh: Oh, for these I have wrecked and ruined more than you have.

Parson Gotti: It's not a contest.
[edit]

Panel 6

Parson is seen from Wanda's viewpoint, a few steps in front and above him. He looks distinctly unhappy. In the background, more mostly-buried corpses are visible.[edit]

Parson Gotti: Or... maybe it is.

But I didn't want to wreck anything.
[edit]

Panel 7

From a viewpoint just in front of the Wanda's foot, the frame shows Parson's head and torso level with Wanda's skull-topped red boot.[edit]

Wanda Firebaugh: Mm. And what did you want?

Parson Gotti: C'mon, I...
[edit]

Panel 8

Parson is seen from behind as he climbs to the top of the staircase to reach a relatively flat area. Wanda is crouching near a pile of rocks and ruins.[edit]

Parson Gotti: All right, if I'm honest?

I did want to command an actual battle.

Wanda Firebaugh: I know.

I saw it when I summoned you.
[edit]

Panel 9

Parson walks up behind Wanda, whose attention is focused on the ground in front of her.[edit]

Parson Gotti: B'not like this, though.

I guess... I wanted to be, like... a field general, but without soldiers having to actually die for it.

Wanda Firebaugh: I see.
[edit]

Panel 10

Wanda bends low, digging at the earth with her hands. Behind and to one side of her, Parson shrugs.[edit]

Wanda Firebaugh: And that was possible in your world?

Parson Gotti: Well, no.

But I'm just saying...
[edit]

Panel 11

A wide view shows the area around Parson and Wanda. The surviving stairway leads up to a small plateau bounded on one side by the cliff slope where the stairway is situated and on the other side by a pile of rocks and ruins.[edit]

Parson Gotti: I mean, then... what's the lesson supposed to be here, Wanda?

"Be careful what you wish for?"

This isn't what I wished for!
[edit]

Panel 12

Wanda lifts a blonde-haired corpse wearing a white outfit.[edit]

Wanda Firebaugh: Hah!

You didn't wish for this world, Parson Gotti.
[edit]

Panel 13

The corpse sits propped up against the ruins, revealing that it is Prince Ansom. In the foreground, Wanda looks back over her shoulder at Parson.[edit]
Wanda Firebaugh: It wished for you. [edit]
