And BAM!  Suddenly we’re in media res within an alternate universe!  A splinter timeline, if you will.  I don’t explain the terms of it, or even that this is an alternate universe.  I just… kinda hit the ground running with it.  I’m not sure it entirely worked out?  I dunno.  This was never read by a, y’know, wide audience before.  But here’s a slightly-jostled version of the storyline “Culmination,” but now with Joe subbing in for Joyce and Joyce subbing in for Walky for some reason!

What’s that reason????  We’ll find out!  …or you can read the title of the storyline, I dunno.
