Ten days have passed since the theatrics of Halloween. Those who weren’t living at the bookstore before have gone their separate ways but reconvened today at Vikky’s behest. In the time between then and now, the news reports pressure on Chief Irons for lacking to step in at the battle at the Cathedral, despite having a Warstrider in his possession. Control over Neosapiens has become a hot topic of discussion; so has the Halloween Heroes, who have been catapulted into instant meme fame as Cowboy Hamburglar, Tiger Lily, Reaper Daddy and Robo Red Riding Hood.
Having finally finished his project, Kuku distributes new, high-security phones jam-packed with functionality to everyone. Features include: waterproof, mostly indestructible, good mics and cameras, earpiece syncing, and a panic button, GPS-tracking system with ‘Muppets Forever’ as a safe word.
Vikky’s big news is quite big, and sad. The time has come for her to give up the bookstore and raise a manse. She’s made all the necessary arrangements for it (aside from determining where she, Kuku, and Nixie will stay in the interim, once the bookstore has been passed over), but she asks for assistance regarding the actual spell needed to build it – a hefty 12 hour long ritual. The group is eager to support her, and discusses the logistics of how best to handle this. (It involves a double layer of obscured fencing, to start.)
The brief mention of potential long-term plans (for Kuku, funding a communal account and for Carmen, the means to fund community projects) is cut short by Vincent’s enthusiastic discovery that he is now a millionaire, thanks to Gabriel’s wish-making!
Conversation eventually returns to Chief Iron’s predicament. They decide to give him a call (well, have Kuku give him a call) to ask him directly what they can do to help redeem him in the eyes of the public. Kuku reports that he seemingly doesn’t care what they do about it one way or another, but still… They decide the solution is to issue a video, in their costumes and faces and voices obscured as the Halloween Heroes, commending Irons for his choices on Halloween night in hopes it might assuage some of the pressure placed on him.
