The Script For Today's Comic!
Gotterdammerűng, Part 5
Seth and Karla are hunched over the kitchen table, papers and charts and a laptop spread out among them. Basically, you know that scene in the movie where the heroes plan a raid on the bank to see what the best approach is? That’s the mood we’re looking for here.
SETH (looking at a piece of paper with a bar chart on it): The affinity graphs show that she has a preference for strong men…
KARLA (typing on the laptop): …Yet her power profile suggests that she resists control.
SETH (putting his head in his hands, despairing): I don’t know, Karla. We’ve been analyzing Izzy’s profile for a week, and yet the data doesn’t point to a clear attraction for any of my characters. I know it’s there, we can give her the romance that only Gotterdammerűng can provide, but…
KARLA (touching him gently): We’ll find it. For her.
SETH: But we have all of this information! Why can’t I find the kind of romance that would set her soul aflame?
TOM (walking by, a beer in his hands, not even stopping as he breezes through the room, breaking the mood): Because some people get really offended when the GM tries to get into their pants?
(He leaves the room.)
SETH (a little angry): I suppose he just gives you cash for Valentine’s Day.
KARLA (not angry, exactly, but cynical and nodding at Seth’s barb as she looks in Tom’s direction): When you marry a punk rocker, the first thing you do is erase the word “romance” from your dictionary.
