#50 [ooh! Fifty! How cool.]"Beansprout,
Flibbage Yakky & J's excellentadventure"
this plan of yours?" asked everyone's favourite priestess-turned-secret-agent.
"Yes Oddball?" replied everyone's favourite suave -yet-annoying-villain.
"So what happened to the pesky kids after you captured them twice?"
Mr. NGSPIB's face fell. "I- er
don't actually know."
"Let me guess," sighed Oddball. "You were so exited when
you thought of your plan, you never thought to find out what happened
Mr. NGSPIB contemplated shooting her, but as she was no ordinary agent
or henchperson, it simply wouldn't do.
"To the records room?" Prompted Oddball.
"To the records room, Agent O!"

?" J enquired of the wilted looking faery. (Beansprout
and Yakky were otherwise occupied)
"La,lala.. He's here! He's here! The phantom of the Op- Pardon?"
"Hypothetically, could you use magic to go back in time?"
"Hell yeah, if it's got donkeys, cabbages or a rhyming couplet, I
can magic it!" She clicked her heels together, for effect. Nothing
happened. "Just- not right now," she added glumly.
"Well what if, at some point in the future, when you've got your
magic back, you came back in time to here, and left us something to help
us escape, something we wouldn't notice the first time we looked
"Like this glob of volatile plastic explosive, cunningly disguised
as used gum?" asked Flibbage with a grin peering under the bench.
"Exactly like that."
Flibbage carefully peeled the plastic goo off the seat, "It's on
my To-Do list." She shoved it into a crack in the door, which illogically
caused it to explode. Flibbage and J were most righteously pleased with
"Gosh! How the Folk did you manage that?!" cried Beansprout,
looking around in surprise.
Flibbage slapped herself on the forehead and turned to J. "Being
a sidekick sucks, n'est pas?"

"No, No, NO, NO, NO!!!" Yelled Mr. NGSPIB, slamming his fist
into a table. "I'm going to go and watch Dawson's Creek, that's the
only thing that'll cheer me up after this catastrophe!"
"Or we could invade Faerie before they show up" said Oddball
through gritted teeth.
"But- but Pacey and Joey!!!"
"Oh all right then, as long as we can watch ER when we're finished.
And chapter twenty-one of Pearl harbour."

"Uh, we're still in the middle of NGSPIB HQ! And we just blew up
a door, which makes us sort of conspicuous!" Yakky whispered; a pointless
exercise because blowing up the door was very loud.
"That's okay, because after I've put the explosives under the bench,
I'll get big guns, and I'll put them in- this cupboard here!" Flibbage
said straining in vain at a large door. "A little help here? I'm
a small and un-magical person right now!"
"Nice!" said Beansprout, "Much as I like my sword, large
guns have always amused me."
"Has anyone ever noticed Beansprout's scarily violent tendencies?"
"We don't like to dwell on the matter." Flibbage said matter-of-factly.
"Beansprout, can I sit in one of your pockets? Any minute now, henchmen
are going to show up and I don't want to be trampled."
"Yes, you can hide in my pocket, coward."
"Cool. So don't be having any sex."
"Talk like that and I'll tread on you." Beansprout answered,
picking up her tiny pal. The conversation could have continued, but just
at that moment the henchmen ran round the corner. Three of our illustrious
quartet took aim. Flibbage tried to sort her hair out.
"At last, some action!" grinned Yakky firing a round into the
oncoming guards. Beansprout thought he looked cute. But no-one else did
because even if he didn't have scary fangs, J wasn't that way inclined.

"I told you so!" hissed Cabbage to Red as they sat tied to chairs
in the throne room.
"So those aren't our kids?"
"No, they are blatantly evil Deepwater YAK clones!"
"Am I still drunk?"
"Because this doesn't seem to make any sense."
"That has nothing to do with how drunk you are."
Just then, Mr. NGSPIB chose to make his grand entrance. The four clones
stood aside as evil Beansprout announced him. "Introducing his supreme
evilness the nefarious Mr. NGSPIB!"
"GASP!!!" gasped Cabbage and Red in unison upon realizing the
identity of their arch-nemesis.
"I thought I told you to STAY THE HELL OUT OF MY GODDAMN FAERIE REALM!!!"
"Yeah! And so did I
but I have no authority
"Yes. So I decided to take it by force!" Barry
[Yes Barry, for it was he! SWERVE!] replied and clapped his
hands with glee. "Wow Cabbage! How cool are those tights! Can I touch
"No! Folk off!" Yelled Cabbage and kicked him in the nose.
"Oow! Don't tell me to folk off! It's Meeean!" said Barry indignantly,
rubbing his nose. Oddball smacked herself in forehead with disbelief.
