It's not spinning the wrong way anymore at least...

Well, sure, if you want to come, but I think you still have some time before they get here. I mean, their voices are here already, but the rest of 'em seem to be...elsewhere...*tries another button, and hears what sounds like a rocket tube firing*

*A Realtor flies in to Tesla's machine cabin.  Tesla dispatches it easily with the high-tech aid of a baseball bat.*

Knew that would one day come in handy.  Never mind the storm outside, it's part of the defense system.

*Pitches Realtor body outside, where it falls into the ocean after some random passage through the time-stream*

Oh dear.  Don't let Environmental see that!  Realtor-matter into the once pristine ocean, and at an unknown time besides...if that gets out I'll be dealing with lawyers...

Hopefully, there aren't more out there watching, though the storm should hide us and let us keep our element of surprise, and we should still be on time.  *Pulls whirling crank out of its moorings entirely* There, fixed that too.

*Pulls out some gin from the Smoking Room, and some corned beef sandwiches*

Anyone up for a little refreshment?  Realtor-slaying is not nearly as fun on an empty stomach, I've found, or when sober...  Cheesy

Coming right up.  *Hands Delirium a tin cup with some gin*

Sorry the accoutrements are less fancy than the ones at the club; when outfitting this I had to emphasize "unbreakable".

We're almost there...see those mountains ahead?  And, notice it's a bit cold?  I hope you brought a wrap. Wink

*pulls out ratty blazer*

Don't mind my "disguise".  I don't pass as well as one of them in this as I used to, because it's so worn.  But it still has all the pockets I added and it's ideal for rough work like this.

Yes, we should move in soon.  Though perhaps I should put that another way..."move in" might attract the wrong sort of attention...

Ms. Datura, I hope those are the warmest spiderwebs you've got...

And yet it's held together with rubber bands and paper clips? *

Erm...yup, that's why...

*looks out viewer at mountainous Realtor hideout.  All appears quiet.  The reflexively placed "For Sale" sign teeters slightly in the Antarctican wind.*

Looks like we're so far unobserved...be careful, though, in case they're lying low and setting a trap.  Weapons check, everyone!
