NOVA'S FUNHOUSE: Daredevil And Iron Fist Play Jenga
I have been inspired to write a new Funhouse instalment after seeing SoulEater's freakin' incredible crossover comic. The title says it all, friends. The title says it all...
The scene is Daredevil and Iron Fist sat at a table playing Jenga. Simple as it gets, really.
Daredevil pulls a piece out of an already quite wobbly Jenga tower.
Man, I'll never see how you manage to do that. No offence or pun intended.
Iron Fist proceeds to look for a suitable brick to be removed from the structure. He fails to see any that look remotely removable.
This is impossible, the only ones left are in the middle and at the sides, there's no grey area. Why do I always agree to play when you suggest this?
Because now that Luke's got a kid, you have no better way to kill your time.
Iron Fist looks at Daredevil for a moment, stone-faced and quite peeved off.
I'm sorry, what?
Well, it's true. Ever since Luke and Jessica had the kid, you've been feeling left out. You feel rejected because Luke ditched you for the care and safety of his own child.
What?! Do you hear yourself speaking right now?
Probably better than you can.
Very funny, chuckles, now listen. I am not jealous of Luke goin' off to look after his kid, it's the right thing to do.
You work in a soup kitchen, Danny.
Iron Fist pauses and ponders the thought in his mind. A look of shock crosses his face in disbelief.
Holy sh*t my life is in the crapper. I haven't got a best friend anymore and I've replaced him with the homeless!
Oh no, it's much worse than that. You, subconsciously are trying to put yourself in Luke's shoes but on a larger scale. That way, Luke will see what he's doing is menial and you're the hard working one.
Holy crap, you're right, you're totally right. Man, it feels so good to get this off my chest. From now on, we look out for each other, right? I'll be there for you and you be there for me.
Sure, man, I'm all ears...
Iron Fist looks at Daredevil with a particularly sceptical look on his face. Daredevil smirks and removes a middle piece from the Jenga tower. The two pieces it was supporting drop onto the layer below.
Got you. (He stands up and tucks his chair in) I've been planning that joke for hours.
Please tell me you got the joke? If you don't get it, you need to re-evaluate your nerd card.
Anyway, this is now a personal favourite of mine and I think I'll be going back to the good ol' days of a witty exchange between two characters. Occasionally I'll do a bigger one with a group of at least six, so stay tuned to Nova's Funhouse in the future, hope you enjoyed this instalment, I did (for once) and be sure to leave your comments down below. Also, thanks to SoulEater for putting me in the mood to write this.
