appears to be Bigfoot, a humanoid offshoot.
The creature leads her to a cave, where she discovers
the skeleton of a Union soldier from the Civil War, who

(107) – The family
pulls into a town where there’s some tension between the
simple townsfolk and the hi-tech company (Star.Dot.Star) that has
moved in more recently and
started to set up a complex infrastructure.
(Molly wrote a very successful jingle for Star. Dot.Star,
and is intent on convincing the CEO of the company – Tad
Raxall, a charming, megalomaniac –
to pull it off the air.) All the hi-tech stuff in town has
started to break down, recently, and soon
everything mechanical (including Molly’s tour bus) has ceased to

sister Melinda is performing in a repertory theater production
“Macbeth” in Seattle; the family goes to see her, taking along
Melinda’s young daughters, who
idolize Fi. The girls
tell Fi that the book of Celtic spells Melinda is using on-stage
(in her role as
one of the three witches) is real.
After the show, Jack is teasing Fi about how she’d be
playing one of the three witches; in fun, Fi says a spell from the
book…and seems to turn Jack into
a weird creature (from the family crest on the cover of the
book) that only she (and later the girls)
will ever see. Jack
later turns up, but the creature itself is real, and Fi and the
girls (who have now
dressed themselves as little witches) must chase it around
the theater and send it back whence it
came with a counter-spell. Fi
succeeds, and the girls see it all..but no one believes their
story about their beloved cousin’s exploits.
A grace note: Fi discovers that the book belonged to
her dad, and that the family crest is in fact the crest of
Molly’s family Irish ancestors – what was it
doing in her aunt’s attic?
(109) – Fi meets a
girl, apparently her own age, who claims to be the daughter
Rebecca, a girl with whom Molly was best friends when she was
Fi’s age – a friend who suddenly
disappeared, and whom Molly
missed so much that she wrote a song about her.
But when Molly
appears and wants to meet Rebecca, the girl runs off.
Molly and Fi try to find the girl; ultimately
Fi tracks her down and discovers that the girl is in fact Rebecca
herself, a hear immortal who is,
in fact not 13 but 1300 years old.
Despite her age, however, the girl and her parents are all
physically and emotionally parallel to Fi; Fi finds that the girl was
desperate to break out of
her secretive existence (necessary to avoid discovery by normal humans) and
with Molly, her only Mortal friend. Rebecca promises to come back and talk to Molly,
parents prevent it; Molly’s heart is broken once again, but hope shines through when
receives an email from Rebecca, signaling a possible relationship for the two old
(110) – Fi, Jack
and Clu join in a local softball game, and hear the local lore
the mean old guy next to the playground who swears that he isn’t
keeping the balls that disappear
over his fence, even though all the kids know he must be lying.
Fi discovers, however, that the
old man isn’t lying: there’s a rip in space/time in right
field into which the
balls have been
disappearing. Fi goes in with Clu; Clu is lost in the wormhole,
and Fi comes back out . . .
fifteen minutes earlier. She
now has fifteen minutes to change the future and save Clu,
without running into her double and screwing up space/time even
(111) – Fi meets a
troubled 9- year- old boy who seems to have psychokinesis (PK),
but claims his imaginary friend never went away and is moving
things around. Fi
tries to prove
him wrong, but ultimately realizes he has in effect created an
entity by concentrated through
( per Buddhist mysticism; a tulpa) who is indeed separate from him
– and which is aggressive
against Jack because Jack doesn’t like the young boy.
At the end, Fi hooks the boy up with
a research facility who can help him, and Jack admits he was wrong
to judge the kid so harshly.
(112) – Fi comes
across email, which is spamming the net; it’s not aimed directly
but as usual, she’s the only one who pays attention. She’ll
discover that the email is coming from
a 28 year old woman in a level 4 coma, whose EEG monitoring
equipment has shorted to the
hospital’s internet connection, enabling the messages to go out
on the net. Fi discovers there is
a model of the town inside the girl’s mind, in which she seems
to be lost, and ultimately uses
SimCity to rebuild the town in her computer – as it was when the
girl went into a coma 20 years
ago – using the memories of old people in town. She then
leads the girl to the “edge of town”
using Instant Messenger; when the girl finally finds her way out.
She wakes up from the coma.
o’ the Wisp” (113)
– While the kids are taking a hike to see the Marfa Lights in
Jack is inhabited by what will turn out to be a mischievous will
o’ the wisp who decides he’s going
to keep Jack’s body forever. Fi notices that Jack isn’t
acting like himself and guesses the
creature’s secret; but when she tries to warn everyone, the creature
snaps the bus into limbo
so he can practice “being” Jack.
Fi knows from her research that she can only get her
back if she guesses the creature’s true name; after several attempts she
finally starts a
random letter generator on her laptop that guesses every name in existence. When the
creature realizes that Fi will soon win their battle, she starts to bargain, first revealing that he
didn’t take Jack at random – he and other spirits like him know about Fi and her investigations,
her to stop. Fi is
shocked, but doesn’t give in to his threats; as the end nears,
offers to let her talk to her father in exchange for keeping her brother’s body.
Fi refuses, and the creature is ejected from Jack’s body – but says it will see her again.
Jack, of course, remembers nothing of the experience.
