"When I Was Mirror Universe Linus Van Pelt"

The irritating thing about Lynn's failed career as a children's book author is that she's still probably very disappointed that she never managed to get anyone to sign off on an illustrated look at her childhood called "When I Was Lindy." There's a fairly good reason for this: the sample images she lovingly shared with the world depict a horrible little monster racing around spreading wreckage and confusion out of sheer wanton and unjustifiable malice. Lynn might not understand this but very few publishers were interested in an instruction manual on how to be a self-satisfied and hateful juvenile delinquent. Parenthetically, this is why she's probably confused and angered that people didn't find Mike turning into a rabid animal because he locked himself out funny or cute or anything other than horrifying.

The reason that I mention this is that the Delicate Genius has a side project that another member of the comm found out about: he wants to write a stage play about him, Gordon and Lawrence as kids tear-arsing around the neighbourhood stirring up shit out of sheer boredom. He's sure that people will delight in the 'comic' misadventures of children who, if they ever encountered a police constable in their travels, would get a free vacation to a delightful vacation nook called 'Juvenile Hall' and doesn't much care for the people who tell him that if he tries staging it, people will flip a coin between burning him in effigy or road-dragging him until he's nothing more than a pelvis wearing a belt.
