Year after year, a somewhat secretive gift exchange takes place between VILE and ACME. While Chase Devineaux was always wary of the occasional mishap, he wasn't one to deny a decent ceasefire.

The name he drew this year was Neb's, and in some distant memory, he recalled knowing the girl was in search of something unknown.

A bracelet of labradorite beads -- something he had heard from an old Indian healer were stones that promoted mind power for those seeking -- and while he isn't a firm believer, he's seen enough in his day to consider that certain things may aid certain people even if no one else understood.

* * *

On his way back from dropping off the gift to the clandestine delivery service, a package for him arrived with a Moleskine tucked inside.

Chase took a pen and promptly filled in the first few pages with plans for a hike early next year:

This is the last Christmas gift from me.

@Ivy: a $25 gift card to Red Robin (I hope she likes the unlimited bottomless steak fries along with her favorite burger and beer that is) *place the gift card in her mailbox*


Merry Christmas to all and to all a goodnight!

Deric made his way into the hangar of the ACME-run airfield. He had one errand to run before taking his Christmas vacation. Looking in the office of the head flight instructor, he saw that Eugene was not currently in. Placing the two boxes on his desk, Deric grabbed two pieces of paper and wrote a note on each box.


On the first note, he wrote:

“Merry Christmas, Flyboy. After watching you tinker in our breakroom, I figured you might need this.”

On the second one he wrote:

“If the first gift doesn’t help you protect yourself, this might.” 51vJJbhxnmL._SX329_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg


"Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year.

Lee's Christmas gift this year was supposed to go to Carmen, but she was so elusive he didn't know where to start. Plus all that weirdness between them over the past few seasons only made gift giving weirder.

So here,

Dear @Carmen, my kinda on again off again nemesis, I know you don't want a gift because you can already steal anything you want, so I figured you'd be ok with me teaching an ACME agent a lesson on moderation and self control,

So I got ZACK a gift!

aep.yimg.com_ay_yhst_76002650168316_bacon_is_meat_candy_bacon_of_the_month_club_11.jpg

A year-long supply BACON subscription, straight to his door! I'm obligating him to a full year of temptations where he'll have to learn to take his meats slowly and on schedule.

Hope you appreciate the idea, Carmen. And @Zack, you can

I'm very happy here. I promise, I'm not going anywhere...other than where my job requires me to...That's part of the fun, after all...This means a lot. Thanks Chase and Sophie. I almost feel guilty about having a piece of it...almost. ;)

Wow. Thanks, Jade. I can get some really great things for my apartment here in San Francisco. And with Invader's goodies, and your candy bars, and Sophie and Chase's very delicious and unusual cake, I've had a lot of treats today. ;)

Sometimes we are so focused on the treasure we are seeking, that we fail to see the one right in front of us
Joe Kerr wrote on Patty's profile.
Is it weird that when someone said "things that glitter" my first thought was you?
At times, when we're so focused on 'who' we are, we forget 'where' we are.

    Quote Link
  • Yul B. Sorry Yul B. Sorry:
    I know what your going to say: why stealing? Well l was force into this way of life due to everything money and not choosing to be poor and in a homeless shetler. My family and friends have abandoned me. And so l saw Carmen on tv. Her superior stealing skills and how she gets away from ACME. I wanted to be just like her to escape the careless outside world and steal and get away with it. I want to join her crew of VILE Henchmen. I know them all. Double Trouble, Vic The Slick, Eartha Brute, Patty Larceny.......

  • Yul B. Sorry Yul B. Sorry:
    Oh well, l did pickpocket and steal people's belongings. Like their fast food dinners and groceries. The Double Trouble twins taught me that during my training. But now, its Carmen's turn to train me to steal the world's treasures and landmarks etc etc.
