Elan refuses to be demoralized by what they saw in the illusion.

Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

Belkar: So then what happened in your dream? Was I in it?
Roy: ...As much as could be expected.
Haley: Elan, honey...are you OK?
Elan: Yeah. Actually, I am.

Panel 2

Haley: But that dream...seeing your family like that. I'm so sorry that you had to live through something that can know...
Elan: Don't be. At least I got to see what it'd be like.

Panel 3

Elan: I don't think there's just one possible happy ending, Haley.
Elan: There are, like, tons of possibilities. We just have to pick one and make it happen.
Elan: I may not get that happy ending...but there's another one out there waiting for me. For us.
Elan: I'm sure of it now, more than ever!

Panel 4

Elan: And Roy, now whenever you get sad or start wondering whether or not you can do it—just think about how awesome it felt to kill Xykon!
Elan: Though honestly, you may want to work on a snappier one-liner for when you do.

Panel 5

Roy: Elan, I don't think a bunch of...of dreams and good feelings are going to help us defeat an ultra-powerful sorcerer lich.
Elan: Sure they are! It's called, "morale," Roy—

Panel 6

Elan: Or sometimes?
Elan: "Hope."

Panel 7

Roy: You know, it's weird...even though I know Durkon is still gone...seeing him in the dream sort of let me say godbye.
Roy: I got to spend time with him knowing, on some level, that he could be gone at any moment.
Roy: ...

Panel 8

Roy: ...Yeah, OK. OK. Let's do this.
Elan: That's the spirit!
Roy: Just because we're outnumbered and outmagicked doesn't mean we can't pull off an upset!
Haley: We've done it before!

Panel 9

Roy: Haley, traps.
Roy: Belkar, watch the rear.
Roy: Elan, if you have any songs that boost saving throws, now's the time. As quietly as you can.

Panel 10

Roy: And Elan?
Roy: Good job.
Roy: And I'm sorry I snapped at you earlier.

Panel 11

Beat. Elan looks shocked.

Panel 12

Elan: Ahhhh! We're still trapped in it!
Haley: No, honey—
Elan: Triple fantasy! TRIPLE FANTASY!!

Trivia Edit

  • The title refers to Elan's belief in the last frame that they are in a dream-within-a-dream-within-a-dream (with the first fantasy being the Order of the Stick comics themselves, as he noted in #889), due to the fact that Roy apologized to Elan and told him he did a good job.
