The Seven Creepies in: The Christmas Crossover Caper | Part 10

“Hold on,” Creepy stood up, “we settled the whole Christmas thing. And where’s Carl, anyway?” “Who is Carl?” Winona asked. “I thought that was Carl,” Mister C of 9 pointed at Carla. “No no no,” I said. “Carl is an … Continue reading

The Seven Creepies in: The Christmas Crossover Caper | Part 7

The Seven Creepies in: The Christmas Crossover Caper | Part 6

This one was also female, although the distinction was even more meaningless than it had been with Mell. She was, effortlessly, the most disturbing Creepy so far – and considering Mister C of 9, that was really saying something. She … Continue reading

The Seven Creepies in: The Christmas Crossover Caper | Part 5

War is Noël / Finding Them, Part 7
