Scylla's Wall

Wall

Looking forward to the day I crunch Circe in my many jaws.

You'll be waiting a long time, toots!

I hate you for turning me into this monster!

Keep it up, and I'll give that pack of dogs growing from your waist a bad case of fleas.

Wishing Charybdis would stop ignoring me. I can see you across the strait. I know you're there.

Charybdis

Gurgle, gurgle, gurgle...

Look, I'm sorry ships always come to my side of the strait, okay?

Charybdis

Gurgle, sputter, gurgle... !

You're an all-devouring whirlpool. They're all like Odysseus—they'd rather only lose whatever men I can eat off the boat instead of losing their whole ship to you.

Charybdis

GURGLE!

Okay, fine... Next time I'll toss a few sailors your way.

Charybdis

SPUTTER! SPUTTER!

OK, I'll toss six sailors your way.

Charybdis

GURGLE! SPUTTER! SPUTTER!

How can I toss a whole ship to you? I'm not big enough.

Charybdis

GURGLE! SPUTTER! SPUTTER! GURGLE! GURGLE!

Give me a break. It's not like you're going to starve. You're a whirlpool. You don't actually need to eat. For that matter, how can a whirlpool even type "gurgle" and "sputter"?

Charybdis

Shut up.

Wishing that lovely young Glaucus would come by for a visit…

Glaucus

Ooooh, sorry I've just been really busy, you know?

Uh huh, and that doesn't have anything to do with the fact that I'm a big ugly monster now instead of a beautiful young nymph, right?

Glaucus

Come on baby, do you really think I'm that superficial?

Yes.

Glaucus

You just want me to come by so you can eat me.

No way.

Glaucus

Liar.

Okay, fine. But don't you deserve it?

Glaucus

For the last time, I thought Circe gave me a love potion, not a sea monster potion.

One day I will eat you.
