Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

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.
Roy: What?
Celia: Close your eyes, it's a surprise.

Panel 5

Celia: Closed?
Roy Yes.

Panel 6

Roy: Hey, that tickles...
Celia: Shush.

Panel 7

Celia: OK, you can open them.

Panel 8

Roy: Wow...

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: ...
Roy: Uh, Celia?

Panel 12

Celia is mesmerized by a bug zapper; several bugs are being zapped, "zzap! zzap! zzap!"
Celia: So...pretty...
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.

Trivia Edit

  • The title is a reference to the devotional song On Eagle's Wings by Michael Joncas.
