It rose from the darkness. Looming over my house, the colossus eclipses the suburban stars, its lights flashing a hypnotizing dance that accelerates as the traitorous robot aims its lasers upon us.

Quickly Calvin turns his transmogrifier on himself and instantly grows a hundred times taller. Summoning his double-handed TigerFang Sword and bellowing in rage, he strikes the titan across the chest.

“Calvin, why aren’t you asleep yet?” The lights come on as Mom enters the room and, seeing Hobbes in his hands and the destruction on the floor, yells “Calvin! That is the sixth night lamp this year!”
