Marcy's neighbor asks her to be her "sassy best friend." Jasmine has been reading urban fantasy for her thesis and thinks she's a paranormal investigator. At first, Marcy humors her because it beats what's on TV, but then they meet a were-beaver, battle some drones (or fairies?), and Marcy starts to worry about "aiding and abetting." Can this modern Sancho save the town and her Quixote from each other? Note: This novel is a complete draft, but I'm revising chapters before posting them.

A warning: This story contains many things that might offend some readers, including semi-explicit sex, "sci-fi violence," four-letter words that somehow retain a certain power, and a general spirit of meanness. Ellen Datlow said she liked it in spite of herself, and published it in 1998 on EventHorizon.com, a site you need the Wayback Machine to find today. The theme park name in this story was stolen from Judith Berman, who I hope forgives me.
