Read part one here.

PANEL ONE–Time stops.  A bird in flight, now stuck between seconds and in the path of Jason’s rampage, gets violently knocked aside.  Until time restarts, the panels should be toned accordingly.

PANEL TWO–Our first clear look of The Princess. In addition to the previous descriptions, she’s an exotic beauty with flowing, glowing, bluish-white hair, with matching eyes, and an overall softened metal quality.  she has a similar chronal bracelet as Jason.

Princess: You use that as well as your father.
Jason: Why are you here?

PANEL THREE–The perspective is from behind Princess.  Although the same height, Jason towers over her in anger.  Princess is half-nodding, half-kneeling in reverence for the moment.

Caption: Dad’s perfect little wife.
Princess: Paying my respect.
Jason: My mother doesn’t need it. I don’t want it.

PANEL FOUR–Shot of princess. She’s upright and looks the role of a widow–tired, hurt, a bit on edge.

Princess: It’s what your father would’ve wanted.
Caption: Even now, his perfect little widow.

PANEL FIVE–Jason, nostrils flared, jaws tightened.

Jason: I could care less what he would’ve wanted.


About lacolem1

I'm a first-year Physics graduate student who spends his long drives from Mississippi to Texas thinking of new ideas and writing/enacting stories and publishable content in his head. I've been a comic book geek since I was 12, an internet philosopher since 18, and a wannabe media inventor since five minutes in the future. I love the beauty of short form fiction a la Maupassant, the ticklish excitement of flowery prose a la Bradbury, and the strict directness of blunt imagery a la Hemingway. Alas, this is countered by my love for bad black-and-white sci-fi from the 50s, bad Benetar-esque pop music from the 80s, and Bridezillas and the Real Housewives of Atlanta. I'd like to think I have a natural talent for words and storytelling, but I guess it's up to you guys to decide
