Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

The Order is riding along.

Panel 2

A raindrop lands on Roy's head, "splink!"

Panel 3

The sky flashes with lightning, "KRAKKAAKOOOOM!"

Panel 4

A heavy downpour begins.

Panel 5

Elan: Oh, this is bad, Roy. Really, really bad! Stop the carts!
Roy: Calm down, Chicken Little. It's just raining.
Roy: Annoying, but not fatal to non-witches.

Panel 6

Elan: It's NEVER "just" raining. Haven't you ever noticed?
Roy: Noticed what?
Elan: Roy, it only EVER rains when something really dramatic is about to happen!

Panel 7

Elan: You know, like, someone tries to kill someone else, or someone is revealed to be a traitor, or someone kisses someone for the first time.
Elan: And I don't think there's any smooching coming up soon!

Panel 8

Roy: Well, I would say that was the dumbest thing I've heard all day, but as I've been talking to Elan since morning, it might not even crack the top ten.

Panel 9

Durkon: Nay, lad, thar be merit in what Elan be sayin'. Lord Thor often sends thunderstorms as blessings—or ta serve as ill omens! We best tread carefully!

Panel 10

Roy: Look, you're both overreacting. It's a simple meteorological phenomenon.
Roy: Absolutely nothing dramatic—

Panel 11

A lightning bolt illuminates the panel, "KRAKAKKOOOOM!" Four figures stand in silhouette, Elan, Durkon and Roy, behind whom stands Miko Miyazaki, katana and wakizashi drawn.

Panel 12

Roy: —is about to happen.
