[Open on Gus sitting in the hallways of Hexside, his head buried in his arms. Luz walks up to him.]

Luz:
Hey, Gus. You okay?

Gus:
I-I messed up bad, Luz. Willow just needed help with this pixie problem, right? So I thought, oh, that I'll lure them away with an illusion. But then...

Luz:
That angered the pixies, and they attacked Willow. I heard.

Gus:
I moved up two grades. What's the point of being good at this if I can't do anything good with it?

Luz:
It was an honest mistake. Besides, Willow's tough as nails. I'm sure you'll both be feeling better tomorrow.

[Cut to Gus laying on the floor of his bedroom, presumably tomorrow.]

Gus:
[groans]

[THEME]

[Camera shows off Gus's bedroom]

Crystal Ball:
[caws and beeps]

[The crystal ball shows a prerecorded message of King.]

King:
(on recording) I'm not reading this.

Gus:
(on recording, off screen) Come on, King. Please?

King:
Ugh, fine. [clears throat] Is that a six-footed pig or a floating appendage? Why, no! It's Gus the Illusion Master. Please leave a message.

[Gus, wearing a cape, hops on screen. The video turns to Willow, her arm in a cast.]

Willow:
(on recording) Hey, Gus. Thanks for sending me all those "Get well soon" illusions but, uh...

[Three tiny illusions of Gus jump onto her shoulders and head.]

Illusion Gus #1:
Willow! How are you feeling? Do you have a fever?

Illusion Gus #2:
Willow, you want me to sing for you? Mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mi...

Illusion Gus #3:
Willow, is this helping?

Willow:
Can you please take them back?

Gus:
[groans]

[The crystal ball shuts off. Gus rolls onto his stomach and traces a spell circle, summoning his illusion to stand in front of him.]

Illusion Gus #1:
Where's Willow?

Illusion Gus #2:
Why are we here?

Illusion Gus #3:
Did we do bad?

[Gus blows the illusions away. Someone knocks on a door. Cut to Gus opening the front door, where Luz is leaning against the frame.]

Luz:
Gustopher! Gusteban! Augustabeth! Any of those working for you

Gus:
You need my library card to visit Amity, don't you?

Luz:
[laughs self-consciously] I haven't been doing a good job of hiding that, huh?

[Gus shakes his head.]

Luz:
Well, I was also hoping to do a little bit of... research! Come on! [drags Gus away]

Gus:
[screams]

[Cut to Luz and Gus walking through the streets of Bonesborough.]

Luz:
So, Eda's mom told me I'm not the first human to have lived in Bonesborough. If that's true, there might be some info on how they got here in the library!

Gus:
Yeah, okay. Looking through old newspapers is about all I'm good for anyway.

[The two of them stop walking.]

Luz:
Spill it, Gustonimo. Are you okay?

Gus:
I-I've just been thinking. What if it's time for me to explore different kinds of magic?

Luz:
I'm all for trying new things, but what's wrong with illusions?

Gus:
Illusions are just so...you know--

Slitherbeast:
[growling]

Braxas:
Yay! Huh?

Bria:
Good work guys!

Gavin:
Yeah!

Angmar:
Alright!

Gus:
(gasps)

Warden Wrath:
[picks up Braxas] Son, are you okay?

Braxas:
Yes, Daddy. Thank you, mysterious heroes!

Bria:
Stay safe out there!

Gus:
Wow! Just wow! Plants. Abomination. Construction. You guys took down that Slitherbeast like it was nothing.

Bria:
Nah, it wasn't that easy.

Gavin:
Yeah, looked like you had a real hard time out there.

Gus:
You're Glandus students, right? I go to Hexside. Name's Gus.

Bria:
Nice to meet ya. This is Angmar. Gavin.

Gavin:
Hey!

Bria:
And I'm--

Mattholomule:
Bria!!!! [panting, running on screen] I would've helped, but like, there was this other baby in danger. You probably couldn't see.

Gus:
Mattholomule?
