  2. Summary

    "Bell the cat"

    DEFINITION:

    To put yourself in a dangerous position. The phrase comes from one of Aesop's fables: The Mice held a general council to consider what measures they could take to outwit their common enemy, the Cat. After a general discussion, a young Mouse rose to present a proposal. “You will all agree,” he said, “that our chief danger consists in the sly and treacherous manner in which the enemy approaches us. Now, if we could receive some signal of her approach, we could easily escape. I venture, therefore, to propose that a small bell be procured, and attached by a ribbon round the Cat's neck. By this means we should always know when she was about, and could easily retire while she was in the neighborhood.” This proposal met with general applause, until an old Mouse rose to ask, “That is all very well, but who is to bell the Cat?”

    Jake meets Ultimate Dirk again.

    (And then again.)

    Summary

    Dirk works as a bodyguard for the chief executive officer of Skaianet inc. In theory, this means he's also his traveling companion, constant shadow, and silent assistant.

    In practice, their relationship is a little more complex. Or it is when he wants to help his boss de-stress, anyway.

    Summary

    THE FRECKLED FIEND, EXASPERATED: Why are YOU mad?
    YOU, MAD: Im not really mad.
    DIRK: Yes you are.
    YOU, NOT ACTUALLY MAD ANYMORE: No seriously. Just a jest bro.
    DIRK, COMPLYING: ...Fine.

    It’s awkward. Awkward as most things are when you’re having a chance encounter with an old flame who you've been ghosting for two weeks straight.

    Summary

    "And then there's a customized copy of PONY PALS, a gift to you on your 14th birthday from the slippery Mr. Strider. Each page contains lovingly hand-written commentary on the deeds of this intrepid young horse. Later, about halfway through the book, rather than see the gag through to the bitter end, Strider began pasting over entire pages of original text with his own completely rewritten version of the story, while keeping all the chapter titles. His revision is a tough, emotionally draining read. But it's cathartic, in all the worst ways possible.
    He tends to get carried away with his projects."

    Note: this work is an altered book, and it plays on the physical relationship between the original pages and the edited text. As such, it's presented as a series of images. Reading the images is the only way to get the full experience, but I'm aware that some people can't/don't want to read it that way. So if that's the case, you can skip to chapter 13, which is a text-only version of the story, including rough descriptions of the most important illustrations.

    Summary

    I think the title explains it pretty well. I will not elaborate on this weird alternate universe where Jake and Dirk replace the main characters of BraveStarr.
