Grouping For Looks is a page-by-page retelling of the Looking For Group saga through the lens of a mirror universe where Cale is a goateed tyrant and Richard is a holy soul trying to set him on a good path.
INT. CASTLE IN THE PAST – RAMPART – DAY
The King stands on his castle wall. Tavor and Cale have his back. Elven archers flank him on either side and more kneel before him. All bows are set on the Vullii representative outside the castle walls.
You have until the count of five.
Sire, we just wish to talk.
Fine. Tavor, fetch me my lectern for diplomatic measures.
Tavor gestures for Cale to follow him before heading down the stairway to the courtyard.
INT. CASTLE IN THE PAST – COURT – DAY
Ugh, diplomacy. No wonder this castle is abandoned in the future.
What’s that, brother?
Spoiler alert, diplomacy with the Vullii is futile.
Tavor uses an enchanted key to open a magic lock on the King’s weapon locker.
You don’t say.
He hands a confused Cale a packed quiver. The arrows within glow with a toxic green aura.
Here, you bring him his diplomatic measures.
Tavor pulls out a bow that looks to have been crafted from devil horns. Cracks in its black and red shaft glow with orange light.
I’ll bring him his lectern.
Wait, so he’s not using diplomacy. He’s using-
Violence, yes. Nice to see you can almost keep up.
Then how does he lose? Are the Vulii that strong?
It’s Vullii. With two Ls.
INT. CASTLE IN THE PAST – DUNGEON – DAY
Meanwhile, beneath the castle grounds, Richard hangs by his arms alone in a cell.
Yeah, I’m going to be here for a while.
