You are of Bajor.
From The Order of the Stick #880.

My only real worry about this is it might spoil an important plot development. Thoughts?

EDIT: Cleaned off the leftovers of the next row of panels up.

The image's confusing to me, but I don't know why.

Anyway, if we were to use the image, perhaps we can edit the partial top parts out of it.

Too much text, spoilers. Pull.

[up] It's a suggestion, it's not on the page yet for it to be pulled.

Bah, I'm tired. Still not a good suggestion.
Not really. Seems to me all you'd need to do is just use that last panel. *poof* Spoilers gone, relevant dialogue still present.grin

Ok, I'll work up a version with just the second panel, for comparison.

EDIT: New new version

EDIT 2: Removed a piece of the deleted panel that I missed on the first pass.

I don't really get it.

Anime-ted
Not enough context in the single panel; potential spoiler in the two-panel.

Hiiiiiii!~
Just tossing this out there, but to demonstrate this trope, there's either going to need to be a bit of text or multiple images showing how a character normally is, and the reaction and the source that caused the change.

Doesn't work for above reasons.

Nonfunctional.
If you come across

a Beast, a Troll, or a Giant

do not run or call for help

but stand still and stay silent.

It might go away.

Not particularly good, sadly.
How 'bout a compare and contrast picture? Ya know, like Spidey joken' around and spidey kicken' ass, side by side. Then slap a caption beneath it and done. Eh?

[up] It'd still be Just a Face and a Caption with nothing indicating the seriousness of the matter. Spider-Man regularily switches back and forth between kicking butt and joking. He usually jokes while kicking butt.

Ahhh, isn't she cu- AGH!

That's a first draft. I can make it better, but that's just an example of what we could do.

No, the other one.
Point is, the image needs to illustrate that there's a point with it, and not a random OOC moment.

Yes, Rageshy is not meant to be anywhere near serious.

Does that stop...ah...weakhearted bronies to list it in the Nightmare Fuel page? Unfortunately not.
I watch, think, talk, and plan about movies. I praise good movies and bash bad movies. I respect you, but not necessarily your taste.
When the lovable hero pulls out a Death Glare, then you know you're screwed.

Try again mate, preferrably with one that includes other characters' reactions.

Great improvement! I am not sure it is good enough, though.
