The Last AlleyThe Mexican Wave had lived in this city his whole life.
And he'd seen every last inch.
Well, actually many - but they were all in the one place.
The Last Alley.
Off he went!
And uh oh! There was trouble there. A Ghost attack!
The Ghosts are a notorious F-City gang. They can barely be seen until they strike. They wail and terrify. They scatter your things everywhere. If you find them within 24 hours, you can have them back.
They are motivated only by the haunt.
Mex didn't know what hit him. He fell hard.
It wasn't like him to lose the upper hand.
And now his lucky watch was missing! His grandfather's watch! And the Ghosts were gone.
Tick tock Mexi, gotta find it!.
He went to the Mayor's office.
Not to see the Mayor.
To break in!
Oh no Mexi, are you a criminal now too?
Nonsense. The corrupt Mayor of F-City owns the biggest news network in history (or at least in screen size), and the F-City police is famously unders
'Round MidnightSee "Changed around midnight" just rolls off the tongue
I may be the loudest but I'm not the one
Just keep looking City; your hero will come
For I'm just a space captain caught on the run
A girl with a twirl says I bought her a pearl?
She's all but forgotten in my little world
It's lightning that calls me away from the pain
"I love you" just gets washed away with the rain
Still, a garden or two and a globe would be nice
A cigar and a wife and whate'er other vice
But that's not for sale, not for me, not for keeps
There's a stir in the night as the ladyfair sleeps
A new day dawns and the sky is all changed
The space captain's gone, but it's nothing deranged
A captain is doomed both for now and for then
To change around midnight again and again

How can you be a time traveller and have no time?
This question always irritated our top-time-traveller Sylvester Wintercoat. He also had no patience for people calling him by his full name and preferred to be called Silver.
You may recall from previous tales that Silver has affiliated himself with a magnificent group called Operation Universifix, whose files you are of course reading, and whose goal is to travel through time fixing all manner of mishaps that, for whatever reason, keep leading to the premature destruction of the universe.
This happens to be a tale from his early days there, shortly after the incident with the werewolves, as it is known.
Now, you'd think that, being a time traveller who needs a break, there would be all the time in the timeiverse to go away for a hundred years and come back after a nice holiday. Especially since Operation Pharmaceutifix has produced all sorts of potions for preventing aging and the other gotc
a dangerous hallucinationThe light coming through the window was bright,
much too bright.
Even though my eyes were closed
I could see it-
The skin of my arms prickled,
sweat dripped from my brow.
It was two in the afternoon but…
the sun was setting
through the window facing east.
I should have seen the hutch,
shelves lined with bone china
decorated with delicate leaves and vines.
I was so thirsty
and reaching for cups that should have been there.
Instead I found a billboard of butterflies,
the colors raging
more than any rainbow
I'd ever seen.
Their wings fluttered and flashed
yet somehow they moved in slow motion.
I wanted to stand,
wanted to reach out and touch them but…
I couldn't move,
and yet I laughed
ignoring my dry mouth
and the tingling in my feet.
There was a tempest
on the rise
and in my blood.
A sugar rush disguised
as a riot of butterflies
and they were swarming me.
There was a small vial
of insulin in my pocket
that I nev
