Dee Dee embraced the small, hirsute man who was standing in the tent, holding a large wooden club in his hands.
"Oogga Booga Cavey need find Dee Dee," he eventually said as he was let free. "Oogga Booga girls had to be saved from boom."
"What, someone attacked the girls," Dee Dee said as she looked at him. "What happened - are they all right?"
"Oogga Booga they fine - ate bomb. Taste like spicy chicken - have same effect too."
Dee Dee had to suppress a laugh as she stroked his head. "Thanks Cavey - I always know we can depend on you." He blushed before saying "oogga booga - Dee Dee in danger too. Taffy say bad man coming for her."
His words made Dee Dee frown. "Bad men - what..." Her words were interrupted by the sound of shouting outside, and as she looked out of the tent she saw the smoke bomb exploding, the black plumes enveloping the car.

“We’re in position, Doctor,” the man said as his picture appeared on the large view screen. He was thin, with slicked back grey hair, and wore a pair of thin metal spectacles that sat on the bridge of his nose.
“We have set up base, and are watching closely the target. We will be able to secure in forty eight hours.”
“Excellent – and what of the – nuisances?”
“Don’t worry, Doctor – everything is in hand. We have secured the services of a local operative to provide a suitable diversion.”

Velma and Daphne have arrived at the stately home of Daphne's friend Penny Pitstop, but perils are approaching from all sides.
A villainous fiend, taking the name of The Hooded Claw, has traced a jewel known as The Star of Alamein. The trail has led to Pitstop Manor - a place where he feel she can avenge the ignominy poured on his ancestor.
Penny had hired Dee Dee, of the San Francisco based Teen Angels, to help with security, but over the last 24 hours the girls have been kidnapped, tied up, nearly killed and generally menaced by not only The Hooded Claw, but another villain who is after The Star - or may be after Daphne. Dee Dee has been joined by the hero known as Captain Caveman, and a small man by the name of Clyde, who have their suspicions about Penny's brother Peter.
When we last saw them, Velma and Daphne had been rescued from a watery grave by Taffy and Brenda, Dee Dee's colleagues, while Penny and Nida, the real owner of Th

“Hey Penny,” Jim and Tim Possible said as Penny Gadget walked through the doors of Middleton High, “welcome to the town!”
“Thanks,” Penny said as she hugged them both. It had been two months since she had managed to foil the diabolical plans of Doctor Claw, alongside their sister Kim, and now she and her uncle had relocated to the town. He was on assignment with the SFPD, which meant she was managing for both of them.
Having said that, as she looked round, she was enjoying the change. Being a perfectly normal high school student had certain advantages. And at least she got to spend time with Kim. The older girl had taken Penny under her wing and become a big sister, but she still had Brain to help her out if things went haywire.
Which, given who her uncle was, happened more often than not.
In another part of town, a distinguished grey haired gentleman was in conversation over the telephone.

She opened her eyes, to see the sky spinning slowly in front of her. She tried to move he r hands to stop it, but as she glanced to her side she could see she was secured with heavy leather straps to a white wooden board, and it was this that seemed to be moving.

Gwendolyn looked over at the same time as young Gwen was looking at her, the quizzical look in her eyes that she remembered so well from her youth.
"Ysshs," Gwen said as she looked down at herself. She had no idea how all three of them had ended up in the same place at the same time whenever that was but she had recognised Gwendolyn the moment they had carried her into the room. It may have been six years, but some things still stood out in her memory.
Gwendolyn turned to her and mumbled "nidewhsdngts?"

She walked up to the window, and curiously couldn't find any mention of a name, but what she could see, were rows of small, intricately detailed porcelain dolls. She bent down to examine them closely, and was amazed by how lifelike they were, the stitching on their elaborate dresses just as minutely detailed as the real thing. The store having piqued her curiosity, Sarah decided to go inside.

As I turned around it was Aoi and Uruha. Aoi got his arms around Uruha. "Uh..you guys. I think you should take this somewhere...like..like in a room or something." Uruha cleared his throat.
Aoi, so straight. so composed. so cool. so boring..I never thought he would be gay? I think..maybe Bisexual? but Uruha, I don't know. He's always been so feminine. No doubt this gorgeous man got hooked up with Aoi's dark alluring beauty. I mean, he could be hooked up with many guys..but something's so different the way they do a fanservice together.

Erin and the Music BoxThe sweat rolled down her brow as she stretched her leg out. She slowly leaned forward, careful to keep her back straight as she kept herself level with her outstretched leg. She rocked a little on her ankle as she counted in her head. Five counts, she quickly pulled her leg in and leapt few feet in front of her. Her foot slid a little as it touched the hardwood floor. She winced a little, leaning over as she returned to her previous position, struggling through the routine.Erin and the Music Box8 years ago in Fantasy More Like This

"There's something fishy about this," she muttered, almost to herself.
"C'mon, babe, this one's a cinch," Kevin said, cocky as ever. "Maybe my tech picked up signs of radiation out here but my sources tell me there's no trace of Highbreed activity in the area, which means they're probably not involved. We got nothing to worry about."
Gwen crossed her arms and looked moodily out the window.
"Doesn't that make you wonder what it is we're looking for?"
Kevin shrugged. "Probably just some missing plutonium. Nothing we can't handle. Right, Ben?"
Kevin smacked Ben good-naturally on the back. The Omnitrix-wearer, clearly not paying attention, nearly choked on his chili fries.

When she had first heard about the trip, two things had upset her more than anything. Firstly, been stuck in a vehicle that looked like it was been held together with duct tape and not much else. Secondly, having to spend the entire summer not just with her grandfather, but also with the idiot that was her cousin, Ben Tennyson.

Dave Miyazaki was the actual listed owner of PowerDragons Martial Arts Academy, but as his age and weight both increased—happy marriage turned out to be less than happy for his waistline—he conducted fewer and fewer of the classes at the dojo. Sensei Dave—still a master swordsman, at least compared to nearly anyone in the environs of Allen County—still taught his kendo, shinkendo, and iaido classes, but more and more of the taekwondo classes, not to mention the Little Dragons introductory course and the women’s self-defense classes, were being taken up by his associates. Sensei Andrew, a grad student at State, handled a number of the classes including the women’s self-defense and his own board-breaking classes, while the younger taekwondo classes became the purview of Sensei Dave’s own daughter Annie, a young woman eager to augment her low associate professor’s salary.

The scene was just like Hastings described it. Everyone stood frozen with horror while the battle between Mrs. Morris and Wanda Zurlich tumbled across the stage toward the dropped gun—then it went off—
And in a moment, Cora’s aunt stood over Wanda Zurlich, who was rolling on the stage in agony, clutching a shoulder which seeped blood over her hand. The gun was in Mrs. Morris’s hand, leveled in deadly earnest right at Wanda’s head. It was, to me, nothing short of miraculous; from many nights and days in her home with Cora, I’d seen Cora’s Aunt Sandy as a mother, a friend, sometimes almost like a big sister. I’d seen her giggle and tease with us, I’ve seen her put Cora’s weeping face on her shoulder like Cora was her own baby girl, I’ve seen her be lovingly stern with either of us or both of us. I’d seen her in every way I
