Fine Distinctions

Cast: Gabe, Tycho

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

{Gabe and Tycho are stood facing each other. Gabe is holding a book and pointing at it.}
Gabe: You lying piece of shit. You told me this book a) wasn't fantasy, and b) contains no dragons.
Tycho: It's not fantasy, I mean, I'd call it Sci-Fi. It's so far in the future, that it becomes an alternate past.
Gabe: Oh, fuck you.

Panel 2

{Gabe faces the audience and looks at the book. Tycho points at the book's front cover.}
Gabe: Now did I let you talk me into this? There's a dragon on the cover!
Tycho: That's not a dragon. It's a Jhereg.
Gabe: It's a fucking flying lizard.
Tycho: My worldview allows for flying lizards which are not dragons.

Panel 3

{Gabe puts the book down. Gabe reaches for Tycho's neck as Tycho backs away.}
Gabe: How about the fact every person in this book is some kind of dragon?
Tycho: Not dragons per se. Technically, they're Dragaerans.
Gabe: That's fair. Let's say I were to... chokeaeran you. Would you appreciate the distinction?
