Nothing But the Truth

Nothing But TruthI have long struggled to decide whether the infamous “Costume Gun” is better described as a magical talisman or a science-fictional device. Even referring to it as having an alien origin, as I do in this caption, doesn’t really settle the issue, as there’s nothing stopping an alien artifact from being magical (although it would represent a cross-genre fusion between SF and fantasy, which in itself isn’t a problem because that sort of thing is all the rage these days). Regardless of the weapon’s nature, though, one thing is clear: if you use it on someone and take over their life, that’s murder—the big M, plain and simple. And though I hate the idea of anyone getting away with murder, it seems to happen often enough in the TG fiction world and no one seems to much mind, so here I go again doing the same thing. But at least here the ‘hero’ (I use the term loosely) has a tiny vestigial conscience: he tells the poor woman’s husband the truth about what he’s done. But as you might expect, who would believe a story like that? Enjoy!

This caption reminds me quite a bit of “Hostage Situation” from 2016, but there are certainly other Costume Gun captions in the archives. I’ll leave you to find those on your own.
