KUWT Iss4p24 Extra DialogueKUWT Iss4p24 Extra Dialogue by =WellThoughtUsername
The following is short, but it's extra dialogue I had in mind for page 24 of my webcomic, 'Keeping Up with Thursday' - had it gone off a little longer.
Billy: Is this your pussyfootin' chickenshit son? *spits onto the floor*
Jim: *holding his gun, aimed at Bill's head* ... You've been nothing but a whimpering hound dog without his master since the Union wiped out your hide. When are you ever gonna shut up?
Billy: *scowls* ...that war ain't over for me, Jim.
Jim: It is over! You're gonna have to get over it...
*several scenes of them looking at each other; Jim moves forward, but Billy grabs Vinnie, and moves back to the hay*
Jim: My vision's still as fine as it was in West Point for us critters. I'm not gonna ask twice for my son.
Billy: The war ain't OVER with ME, Jim! You took LIVES. My family's life, all because you wanted to

Act VII - Finale
*several knocks bring about Beverly's attention to the door; she calls out to it, saying she'll be there in a minute*
Beverly: I'll be right there!
*she is tending to another pot, herself dradled in blankets; she grunts as she climbs down stairs, opening doors.*
Beverly: Coming! Hold your horses, please, I'm a bit tied up! ... Ungh, I really need to begin cleaning this place up, it's an awful, awful, awful mess!
*finally, we hear a loud creak... the door swings open, and Beverly lets out a gasp*
Vinnie: Brrrrr..... Bev-bebeb--Beverly... here, I... I finally found my roomie. Meet, uh---
Beverly: Oh, my. Come in, quick! The storm's getting relenting now, the fire's getting reasonably bigger now, and I brought some extra stuff out right now.
Vinnie: He's... uh...
Vinnie: John. Len...cart.... John Lencartsoningo...
Patrick: *huffs, not impressed by the stupid alias one bit* ...Erm...
Beverly: Poor thing's all bundled up so tight, he

Narrator: Later that day, Vinnie arrived home to find Patrick there. With him, a huge bag full of rings and jewels stolen from the humans above them. With his arm hunched over, he dropped it onto the ground, and smiled wide at his loot - at this rate, who needed Christmas? A lot of this could fetch a fortune in the market! The mouse wasn't in it for cheese, in fact, that made him sick... but the thrill of finding these kinds of things without the humans noticing, was a fun thrill in and out of itself.
Vinnie: *knocking on the door, then coming in* Patrick? Hey, you there?
Patrick: Just arrived now, where the heck have you been?
Vinnie: I was out shopping. I hope the birds aren't too busy this year with their flight plans, but I managed to ship a few things off for the season. I... I kinda wanted to see how he was doing this year, we haven't spoken in so long.
Patrick: *indifferent* ...Hm...
*a long pause*
Vinnie: Stolen some more loot, I see.
Patrick: Yeah. Y'know, it's not as

Narrator: Early one morning, in the cold winter evening of London's streets, Vinnie the mouse sought forth to celebrate the Christmas spirit.
Vinnie: *humming a little bit* . . . . . I really hope Pat doesn't mind that I got him something. He may think he has it all, but y'know, I think I'm gonna surprise him. Just 'cause.
Narrator: Vinnie had come from afar and had taken shelter under Patrick's roof for many years. The friendship was tenuous, at best, but they did their best to get along. Vinnie figured it was the right thing to do, for someone who helped him when times got rough.
Vinnie: *sighs* ... *sounds of shuffling can be heard; of clothing, or items, whichever worked* Nope. .... Nope.... ...... *sighs defeatingly* This isn't as easy as it looks. How do you get a gift for a thief?
Narrator: Ultimately, his efforts, it seemed, had gone to waste. He began to wonder now if he should bother, perhaps, with how his roommate had gone out again. Sup
