The sun is fading and the shadows grow long.

This chapter may last a while but I don't know what happens afterwards. Thank you for reading.

The name "Slaughter Street" doesn't exactly sound very inviting - but perhaps that's at least a good protection against gentrification...

Slaughter Street: named after a Civil War-era busybody, nobody in Autumn Bay blinks an eye at references to that conduit between little Dublin and Chinatown.

Farrell's Row, on the other hand...

And then they all settled their differences and went out for some shawarma

Pretty sure that a few of my cast are going to be drinking their dinners through a straw after this next heave-ho...

and they'll be the lucky ones

Last Saturday I rode my bicycle past "Killmore Street". I'm sure you could find "Slaughter Street" in a few places for real.

Hmm, Google found me one in Arlington, Texas. But the top results were related to a video game parody of Sesame Street called "123 Slaughter Me Street".

Yeah, I thought there'd be more historical figures with that name but they all are too recent or from Texas. Gonna have to ping Prof for an impromptu backstory on this one, as I picked this name purely for its dramatic effect.

Thank you for commenting!

Somebody's gonna have to be picked up in a bucket real soon. I just know it.

As Prof would say, this is a bit outside of their territory, so that tag is probably one of their feistier members counting coup, as this is a major intersection in the Farrell's Row neighborhood.

I like the little peephole view through the ruins to the skyscrapers, contrasting the rundown and the well to do!

The only thing that keeps this country from melting the fcuk down is the perception that there's a connection between the two worlds.

I.E. "It's a tax cut for everyone" and other horseshit.
