Roy enjoys the view of Azure City from the sky, while Celia enjoys a slightly different view.
- Panel 1
Roy: So then he's got this puppet, that he calls, "Banjo the Clown"—
Celia: Because it has a banjo?
Roy: Yeah, exactly.
- Panel 2
Roy: Wait a minute, it's almost midnight.
Celia: Hey, yeah, I forgot. It's so warm here in the south, it doesn't feel like New Year's Eve.
- Panel 3
Roy: Do you want to try to get back to the city square? I heard they have fireworks...
Celia: I have a better idea.
- Panel 4
Celia: Close your eyes.
Celia: Close your eyes, it's a surprise.
- Panel 5
- Panel 6
Roy: Hey, that tickles...
- Panel 7
Celia: OK, you can open them.
- Panel 8
- Panel 9
Roy: Thank you. You know, for the first time in—I don't know how long, I feel like a person again, and not just a class/race alignment combo.
Celia: And I feel like more than an entry in a monster book.
- Panel 10
Roy: I can see everything from up here!
Roy: I guess there are some hidden advantages to dating outside my creature type!
- Panel 11
Roy: Uh, Celia?
- Panel 12
Celia is mesmerized by a bug zapper; several bugs are being zapped, "zzap! zzap! zzap!"
Roy: Apparently, there are also some drawbacks.
Moth #1: Ooooo!
Moth #2: Don't go towards the light!
D&D Context Edit
- The most important parts about character creation are choosing race, class and alignment.
- Good-aligned monsters like Sylphs are included in books like the Monster Manual as well; these resources describe all types of creatures beyond the races which can be chosen by a character.
- The title is a reference to the devotional song On Eagle's Wings by Michael Joncas.
