Title: incendiary thinking
Date: November 9, 2007
Summary: Steve's attempts to warm himself by imagining a fire go a little too well.
"Fin" style: Little flames
Number of panels: 9
Beaver and Steve are wearing scarves. Steve SHIVER!s and SHAKE!s. Their breath makes little clouds.
Steve: "So ... cold... Bodily Functions... ...shutting down..."
Beaver: "What I do when I'm cold is I imagine a nice hot fire and then I feel warm in no time. Give it a try!"
Steve: "Hmm.. OK, I'll give it a go..."
Steve imagines a happy flame.
Flame: "Fire! Woo!"
Steve: "I've just got to think about fire.. Thiiiiiink..."
Steve looks happier.
Steve: "Wow! It really works! I feel warmer already! It's like there really is a fire!"
Beaver: "I think you might be a little too good at this Steve..."
Beaver's tail starts to CRACKLE as fire burns it.
Beaver tries to PAT PAT the fire out with his scarf.
Beaver: "I don't suppose you could try imagining me a fireman now?"
Steve: "Don't worry Beaver. I'll think one up right away!"
Steve is now dressed as a cowboy, complete with Stetson hat, bandana and gun holster.
Steve: "Ta-da! I'm a fire man!"
Beaver: "I don't think that's quite right Steve..."
Beaver FLAP!s his scarf which is now also on fire.
Beaver: "Please do try to concentrate.... It is a trifle urgent..."
Steve: "OK, OK! Gee... Some people can get so pushy when they're on fire.."
Steve is in a HUFF!
Steve: "Right... Fireman... Fireman..."
An ice cream cone with chocolate topping and a flake APPEAR!s in Steve's hand.
Steve: "Oh Boy! An Icecream!"
A Dragon pokes it's happy pink head into view.
A Dragon: "Miaow."
Steve: "... and a Dragon! Yay!"
Steve flies away on the back of the Dragon, leaving Beaver to be engulfed by the fire.
Beaver: "... I think I'm going to need some balm..."
Although Steve is cold, he imagines an Ice Cream.
