Shayara Calendar - January

Napalm, facing the "camera" dead-on; he's leaning back just a little, right foot back, arms extended, in a typical comic-book fireball-throwing pose. And even though his fireballs don't show up on film, we can see that he's got one hovering between his palms now. Yes, visually see, because we're drawing him. He's very grateful for that.

He's wearing his trenchcoat, his boots, all of the "armor" that he wears in his attempt to be a badass. And he's trying to look tough and arrogant and nonchalant, but you can tell that he's actually really freakin' *giddy*, because look! Look! He can blow shit up! So cool!

Writing
Start with a home-video-camera view of Napalm. He says, "Aisling Fisher. Napalm. I blow shit up."

Next panel, voice from behind camera (Johnathan): "Why do you always have to say that?"

Napalm rolls his eyes. "Dude. It's my whaddayacall. Catchphrase. Okay?"

Snort from Johnathan.

Napalm crosses his arms, smug. "You're just jealous that *you* don't have a catchphrase."

Johnathan: "I could have one if I wanted one. Ummm... 'Raven! He comes by night!'"

Napalm doubles over laughing. "Comes by night? Dude. No. So wrong!"

Camera tips down to show the ground. "Hey. Beavis. Do you wanna do this or not?"

Camera swings back up to him. Napalm composes himself. "Yeah, sure. Lemme pose."

He strikes the familiar fireball-throwing pose, arranges himself so his "good side” faces the camera, tries his best to look serious. "Aisling Fisher. Napalm. I blow shit up."

Static shot of him facing the camera. Then Johnathan moves the camera, and we see through his eyes: Napalm's wielding a crackling ball of raw energy, but the camera's obviously not picking it up. Camera. Johnathan. Camera. Johnathan.
Johnathan: "The fireball's not showing up on camera, man."

Napalm, exasperated, drops his hands. "What? Aw, no..." ...and he has obviously forgotten that he was holding a frickin' fireball, because the pine needles beneath him ignite with a fwoomp. He yelps and jumps away. We see Johnathan now as he grabs the fire extinguisher he had Just In Case and sprays the area. Napalm starts laughing, full-on belly-laugh, as Johnathan rolls his eyes...
