    So, that’s what the Redfern’s basement looks like.

    Maybe Trudeau’s the one with writer’s block here. Love that mountain goat, though.

    And the hero meets his end at the bottom of a cliff with a splat. I would have expected a thud.

    Heroic fiction but modernized and set to USA propaganda frequency.

    When I hit a block I start having brain storms and push through it. write something to progress the story. Rewrites are always in the air.

    “The fluttering end of his scarf snagged on a protruding bit of scrub, almost snapping his neck, but swinging him against the wall of the cliff with a lurching thud. Fortunately he had lost his boots in the struggle and digging in with fingers and toes he began the long climb back to his faithful steed, Petreaus.”

    That works for me . . . good catch!

    I would prefer a timely delivery from the Acme Elastics company, followed by continued pursuit of of the Roadrunner. That might be a generational preference though.

    This would be a good time for Jeff to check his Cliff’s Notes.

    Saved! And just in time. That splat was a loosened rock.

    He could rapidly unwind his turban, swiftly form it into a noose, lassoo the horns of the mountain goat which will pull back it’s head rapidly in surprise and rage and begin to run backwards up the slope, arresting Our Intrepid Hero’s fall, and dragging him back up the mountain. Red Rascal can then grab a hold of a small rocky outcrop, release his grip on the end of the fabric and scurry away into the shelter of the scrubby undergrowth before the goat realises what has happened and pursues him. (No, the goat will NOT be pulled over by the schock of Rascal’s sudden weight on his horns – have you never watched a nature programme? Those things can walk upside-down on overhanging ice and not lose grip.)

    What, you mean his C.I.A. supplied emergency parachute didn’t work?
    Or the rocket boosters in his shoes?
    Wait, I know, he manages to grab hold of a passing Drone and fly to safety…

    What??They all make as much sense as the rest of Jeff’s flights of fancy!!

    “… swinging him against the wall of the cliff with a lurching thud. Fortunately he had lost his boots in the struggle ….”


    Unfortunately for this scenario, in panel 4, before the struggle “against the wall of the cliff”, Jeff had already lost his “boots”.


    Suggest either your own rewrite, or draw boots on Jeff in panels 4, 5, and 6.

    “… the rocket boosters in his shoes ….”


    If no shoes — see panels 4, 5, & 6 — then no rocket booster carrying shoes.


    Back to the drawing boards with you!

    We are talking about Jeff Redfern here…what does that have to do with “Reality”??
    LOL
    WAIT, I HAVE IT!!
    "Petraeus, his “Faithful Steed”, is actually the result of a secret C.I.A./N.S.A./DARPA genetic modification project, and is actually the world’s first fully functional Pegasus!
    He will swoop down in the nick of time, and rescue out hero from a horrible, and messy demise!
    “Yeah, that’s the ticket!!”
