Title: GUEST STRIP! by Rebecca Clements
Date: April 18, 2008
Summary: Steve goes off in a huff after Beaver refuses to help him
"Fin" style: None
Number of panels: 11
Beaver is sitting, cross-legged, and wearing a kimono.
Steve: "Ooh! Beaver, can I use your expensive Japanese calligraphy brushes to clean my mice??"
Beaver: No, Steve. They're expensive.
Steve, tears in his eyes, turns away in anger.
Steve: "FINE! Then I'm going to drink this coffee!!"
Beaver holds up a hand in protest.
Beaver: "No, Steve! Don't do it! It's a big boy drink!!"
Steve CREAMs his coffee.
Steve, tongue poking out through concentration, SUGARs his coffee.
With worried determination, Steve begins to STIR STIR STIR STIR STIR ST..
Beaver holds his head in panic.
Beaver: "NO, STEVE!!"
Steve takes a slow, nervous SSSSIP!
Steve: "PLEAH! Yuck! More sugar! More sugar!"
Steve spits out the coffee and throws down the cup.
But something odd is begins to happen to Steve. As Beaver looks on, confused, beads of sweat appear on Steve's brow.
Beaver's expression turns to surprise as Beaver starts to grow taller, darker, more fearsome.
By now Steve is so big that only one foot and his tail are visible in frame.
Finally, Steve towers over the city. His scales are bright orange, he has a hard shell on his back and a crop of orange hair on his head. Best of all, though, he has a beard.
Steve: "Oh my God, A BEARD!! Beaver, I'm a big boy now!"
