CXXXVIII: Treehouse of Jackals

This page is named after “Treehouse of Horror”, the annual Simpsons Halloween special.

I was at first hesitant to include Scurry in the story, since I didn’t see him serving a substantial part. But if Flint is Simon from Gurren Lagann, Scurry is a shoe-in to be Simon’s pet mole, Bota. Also, Flint would want Scurry to trick or treat with him. Excluding Scurry didn’t make sense in-universe.
Once they got to the treehouse, Scurry had been present long enough in the story to satisfy the reasons to include him, so I tried to write him out. This scene resulted. It was a genuine moment between two friends worried about each other, and it shows a manner of serious resolve from Flint that we haven’t seen yet.
