Bill did a number of the comics from stuff I suggested, usually with significant improvements. E.g., Panel 1. ALYCIA: (pointing accusingly at JASON) You turned into a tyrant in the future. An evil mad scientist! Panel 2. ALYCIA: I saw it Jason. In the future! I saw it! Panel 3. (ALYCIA glares. JASON looks hangdog.) Panel 4. ALYCIA: (smiling) Also, I GOT TO GO TO THE FUTURE! JASON: (still hangdog) Aw, man ... Bill adapted that pretty closely , with the additional niftyness of Animated Happy Alycia. Though I still kind of like the idea of Jason's remorse over his future tyranny turning into sulking that she got to go into the future and he didn't. This second is, I think, what inspired the spiffy Harry+Chip-Prism comic (Bill did say he took a lot of liberties): Panel 1. HARRY: Hey, Jason! JASON (sitting) : Hey Harry! Warehouse 3. HARRY: Thanks! Panel 2. JASON (sitting) Panel 3. HARRY (now on Jason's other side, holding a large bag/box): Thanks again, Jason! JASON: Nice seeing you, Harry. Panel 4. HARRY: You know, you don't have to buy all the chips in Halcyon just to get me to visit. JASON: It's good to have money. I also believe the "Dammit Jason!" curse jar stems from this gag: Panel 1. Phone ringing. Panel 2. Jason (picks up): Hello? Panel 3. Voice from phone: DAMMIT, JASON! (click) Panel 4. Jason to the viewer (fourth wall): That happens a lot more often than you might think Alycia and Charlotte's encounter , as scripted in mild self-mockery of Alycia's melodramatic cutscenes: Panel 1. Alycia (to Charlotte): The ghosts of my past haunt me. Panel 2. Alycia (to Charlotte): They haunt me! Panel 3. (Silence. Charlotte looks at Alycia, who's covering her face in her hands.) Panel 4. Charlotte: Actually, they say you're a nice kid, just a little stressed - - Alycia: HAUNT ME! I do like the "emo-globin" line. Finally, the Alycia and the Newmans strip , where Bill much improved my punchline. (All ALYCIA to SUMMER) Panel 1. So I talked with you, and you were nice. Panel 2. Then I talked to Leo and he was clueless. Panel 3. Then I talked to Aria, and she was compassionate. Panel 4. You guys make it really tough to maintain a terrified paranoia. So now you see that little bit of the creative process, too. Again, many thanks to Bill for keeping us delightfully "pacified" whilst Doyce was recovering.
