Life advice, via Are You Afraid of the Dark (index) (random)

Dear Kristen,

I just moved here from Paris, and I’m having a hard time adjusting.  I’m being bullied at school, and my locker is haunted.  The ghost gave me a time-travel necklace, but it only goes to the 1960’s.  How can I harness its powers for evil?  Everybody is stoned, and I’m growing impatient.

Dear McFly,

Unfortunately, it sounds like your time-travel powers are “ghost” related, meaning that your only options are to rectify the past or die trying.  It would, however, be pretty subversive to die.  All those kids who made fun of you—think of how bad they’d feel!  I know it’s not much, but I’d say any publicity is good publicity at this point.

Yours in spirit,
