The Secret of NIMH 2 Ch. 1Shortly after Mrs. Brisby saved her Family's home from being destroyed, Timothy had fully recovered from his near-fatal illness and lived a happy, peaceful life with his mother and siblings. He also enjoyed listening to his Mother's amazing stories about how she met The great owl, The rats of NIMH and the wise Nicodemus, although he thought she was just making them up to entertain him, His older brother, Martin, and their sisters, Teresa and Cynthia. Mrs. Brisby could tell this, especially as Timothy grew older, But she decided it would be best if she didn't tell him different. Timothy's Favorite pass-time was playing with Martin, but he spent most of his time with his mother. He would always help her with the daily work around the house, of course Martin, Teresa and Cynthia would always help out, but Timothy was mainly responsible for taking care of his mother, because she was growing old, every day, she would watch with love as her children grew older, but her children, especially TiThe Secret of NIMH 2 Ch. 14 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

The furlings glided through the air in the flapper wingamathing for hours before the sun finally began to set through pink, parting clouds. The rain eventually began to let up. Once they were able to lock the wings in place, Abigail took to gazing over the side with Michelle as Edgar updated their map to include places they hadn't charted yet. But with the sun going down, they thought it best to land the craft somewhere so they could forage for more food and get some sleep too. They'd already gone through their meager food supplies.
"How far are we from Dapplewood?" Abigail asked Edgar, looking over his shoulder.
"I'd say we've almost tied our record now for the furthest we've ever been," he answered, "But the black trail hasn't taken us to any humans yet."
"We just need to keep going," Abigail answered, looking at the map, "Of course, after we stop to camp out somewhere."
Abigail looked at the regions around the black trail. She blinked when she noticed they weren't far from Oakdale m

"Mrs. Brisby! Mrs. Brisby, wake up!" Justin's voice echoed. In all her surroundings, she could sense that her comrades were around her. Uttered voices, muttering about her, concerned if she was alive. Justin's voice trying to reach out to her so she wouldn't be lost. So she'd be able to take care of her children.
"Wake up, Mrs. Brisby! Please! Please wake up!" His voice echoed again. Mrs. Brisby moaned as she slowly opened her eyelids. Very slowly, she turned to him.
"J-Ju . . . J-Justin?" she said softly. The rat lightly chuckled, relieved she was alright.
"Oh, thank goodness! You're alright, you started to worry me there." Justin said, hugging the small mouse. Noticing the wrapped bandage around his arm, Mrs. Brisby hugged him tightly.
"I'm sorry." Justin seemed confused, but then got the idea. He figured she saw his wound, all bandaged up.
"No, it's fine! I'm okay."
"No! I mean I'm sorry all this happened. I-I-I mean Billy captured me--I-I couldn't get out of the cage and J

Penny breathed a heavy sigh as she parked her car at the staff parking spot at NIMH, taking the key out of the transmission and gripping the steering wheel. She wore her lab coat and her usual uniform but her hair was unkempt, and she’d neglected to wear her makeup. She felt as if those things didn’t matter much anymore.
Somehow, she worked up the willpower to open the door and step out of the vehicle, closing the door behind her. She couldn’t name a time in her life where she’d been filled with more dread. But she knew just what she was going to do when she got in. Penny walked up to the entrance of the building, and swiped a key card through a slot at the door to enter. Once inside she headed straight for the lab with the test subjects.
She passed by Dr. Clark, who began to greet her, “Oh, Dr. Stacy, how are you-”
“Sorry, I have business in the lab,” she replied hastily, walking past the scientist.
She slipped her keycard into another s

Michelle squinted, taking a quill and dabbing it in ink so she could copy from a book Cornelius was having her read. She was starting to learn the alphabet, soon she'd be able to read and write like Cornelius could. She coughed, and took deep breaths in order to avoid a coughing fit, or perhaps another asthma attack. Cornelius had herbal remedies prepared in case she did get one; yerba santa leaves or licorice root worked the best. She couldn't understand why the gas had done this to her lungs, and her eyes. But it was just another thing she needed to get used to, like the death of her parents. After staving off the coughing fit, she sighed, rubbing her throat, and getting back to work.
It was then that Abigail burst through the door, followed by Russell and Edgar.
"Michelle! Are you here?" Abigail called out.
She peeked from behind the pile of books on the desk, "What's wrong?"
The three of them ran over to the desk.
"Humans are coming," Abigail answered, "Get up, Cornelius said there

Penny didn’t sleep that night. She laid awake in bed, racked with guilt. She had, unintentionally, brought about the destruction of the group that had rescued her when she was a child, she now knew. In doing so she’d prevented the rescue of other children around the world. And she may have even caused the deaths of the ones who had rescued her as a child, Bernard and Bianca. She didn’t know for sure; they could have been among the ones captured to be experimented on. Or they could have not been there at all. Sixteen years is a long time. Maybe they were retired. Or already dead. But the mere possibility of them being dead because of her was unbearable.
It was Sunday. Though she’d been looking forward to her weekend break on Friday night, the wait now was agonizing. She’d go straight to the lab Monday morning, and the moment she was alone she’d look through the cages and find the new mice, see if Bernard or Bianca was there. And if not, she would ask

Of all the Don Bluth movies, I didn't see this one until I was fourteen. I did see a clip of the film on the Disney Channel around the late 90's and didn't see the rest and up until that point, I had only seen six of the man's from the rest of the 80's to three of his films from the 90's such as Rock a Doodle, The Pebble and the Penguin and Anastasia, the latter being the only film I saw in theaters when it first came out. But really the closest thing to The Secret of Nimh nowadays is basically the fact that I own the Two Disc Family Fun Edition and the fact that I did see the film last year but here am I taking another look at the film. The most interesting thing about the film is the fact that it has a dedicated fanbase and that Doug Walker is among the film's fans.
In The Top 11 Underrated Nostalgic Classics in the Nostalgia Critic series, he placed the film on number one and not only that, it's one of his all time favorite movies. Let's take a look at this film now, shall we?

“You’ll have to excuse the council,” said Justin as he led Abigail by the hand down a winding, crystal-encrusted tunnel lit with a string of small, colored electric lights along the walls the size of Christmas lights, “We tend to take ourselves a little too seriously around here.”
Abigail still felt heartbroken by the harsh decision of the council. She and her friends were going to be stuck in Thorn Valley for the rest of their lives, while her daddy, Cornelius, and the others would suffer and die at NIMH.
“I may be the leader here but we’re still a democracy, my opinion only holds so much weight,” Justin said with regret, “If it were up to me we would send soldiers to try and rescue your family and friends. But you can’t blame them for being afraid to do that. After all, we’ve been there before. It‘s not a place any of us want to return to.”
Abigail stayed silent. She did understand why they voted not to hel
