Panels: 9
Previous TBFGK 94 Next TBFGK 96 [edit]


Panel 1

Jillian explains herself to Wanda. In the distance behind her are the group of Coalition fliers.[edit]

Jillian Zamussels: Yeah, Ansom is officious. He's pompous. He's an order-giver.

It's just the way he's made. And you know I hate that.

But, Wanda...

He never tried to bend me to his will.

He left the big decisions to me.
[edit]

Panel 2

Wanda is looking annoyed and frustrated.[edit]

Jillian Zamussels: I resisted his command.

But you were the one who actually commanded me.

...I don't like that.

Wanda Firebaugh: Whhat... do ...you want?
[edit]

Panel 3

From the perspective of the invading air forces, we see Vinny observing the confrontation below, his arms crossed critically. One of the three Archons breaks away to approach Jillian.[edit]

Jillian Zamussels: Turn.

There's nothing for you here.

Wanda Firebaugh: No.
[edit]

Panel 4

Jillian has a focused and determined look in her eyes. In the background behind her, the Archon Jaclyn is approaching.[edit]

Jillian Zamussels: Okay, I know.

You can't.

Whatever loyalty spell controls you is tougher than the one you had on me.

Jaclyn: Warlord?
[edit]

Panel 5

Jillian is brandishing her sword. Just behind her, Jaclyn reaches out desperately to attract her attention.[edit]

Jillian Zamussels: But I love a problem I can solve with a sword. So I'll go out there.

I'll find him, Wanda.

And I'll just free you up.

Jaclyn: Warlord!
[edit]

Panel 6

Jaclyn has reached Jillian's side and placed a hand on her shoulder. Jillian is turned toward her with a startled expression. In the background, a second Archon is approaching.[edit]

Archon: Jaclyn!

Jaclyn: She's under no loyalty spells.
[edit]

Panel 7

Jillian and Jaclyn are face to face. Jillian is speaking and showing a rather annoyed expression. In the background, unnoticed by the pair, Wanda is chanting trigger words with her arms raised ominously.[edit]

Wanda Firebaugh: ABACABB.[1]

GOURANGA[2].

IDCLIP[3].

XYZZY[4].

UUDDLRLRBASS[5].

Jillian Zamussels: That's crap.

She'd never follow that monster out of her own free will.
[edit]

Panel 8

A bright yellow and orange ray projects up from the middle of the panel. The ground cracks around the point of emission. Wanda cannot be seen, but she speaks from the center of the beam.[edit]
Wanda Firebaugh: AYBABTU[6]. [edit]

Panel 9

Wanda looms large and horrible as the wild energies of the air defenses swirl around her. The black robe flies behind her revealing that she is wearing something akin to a one-piece bathing suit of black and red underneath, with knee-length boots of the same coloration. Her eyes, left hand, and the staff in her right glow bright yellow with unleashed power.

She shouts out the final trigger word.
[edit]
Wanda Firebaugh: ...AGGRO[7] [edit]
