Being chased by the Culture Purist Hipsters! I’ve mistakenly mentioned I enjoy all kinds of music and film. At first they scoff at my plebeian tastes, but when one of ’em follows me into the bathroom and sneeks a peek over my urinal and sees the heat I’m packing (yeah it weirded me out too) they go mad with jealous rage! My 10 lb. terrier Bitefighter and I run into an old abandoned castle and collapse the gate just in time. We’re breathing a mutual sigh of relief when we hear an echoing boom sound from outside. We scramble up a tower and see a battering ram swaying back and then crashing into the gate. Hundreds of yards away, torch-lit catapults are wheeling creakily into place. I look down at Bitefighter’s scruffy old man face and he gives me a concerned whine. I open my eReader to Echo. Magic flash. Bitefighter’s tiny form becomes encased in a Bitefighter-sized suit of Robotech armor. The last piece snaps over his head, and his glassy eye-pieces gleam with sapphire blaze. He jumps off the tower, back-mounted thrusters flying him at the sieging mob. Twirling smoke trails wind through the air as he launches a sequence of micro-missiles. The explosions send hipsters flying left and right. Lightsabers sprout from his claw-tips as he dives low, chopping up legions of black-rimmed-glasses wearing mofos. I cheer him on, whooping and hollering like I’m eight years old. Saved!
