ParaNorman - Going With A Fight - Chapter 7"Alright, where is he?" Shrall demanded, looking around the room. "You better have a good explanation for making us come here instead, Sheera." Demar growled, looking around the house. "Oh, don't get your hood in a knot." Sheera snapped her fingers, and in an instant Norman appeared, fainted. "There you are, boys." Sheera smirked, gesturing to Norman. "Free for corruption. Seems as though we won't need Courtney after all " she shrugged. "Yes, it seems so " Shrall nodded, then turned to Demar. "Bring her back." He ordered. "How about you bring Ombre too? I'd just love to see how he reacts when he sees that the twerp lost." Sheera smirked evilly, hoping they'd buy it. "You can't tell me what to-" "Demar!" Shrall interrupted him sharply. "Just do as she says, it won't kill you." He growled. Demar murmured something under his breath as he started up his spell.
Sheera tried her best to avoid glancing at the door that lead to the basement. She was hoping that if Norman - the REAL N

Coraline looked out the car window, bored. Her parents had to go on a business trip to some place called Blithe Hollow, but she didn't really know why or what it was for exactly. Since they didn't trust her at the house alone (especially after what they called 'The Snow globe Incident') and they both had to go, she was dragged along for the trip as well. Her mother, Mel, glanced back at her as she heard yet another sigh from Coraline. "You're overreacting, Coraline. This'll be fun!" Mel said in a cheery voice, trying to cheer up her daughter. "Yeah, right " Coraline replied gloomily. Mel smiled faintly at her daughter, then turned forward again. "The people here look nice " she tried again. Coraline examined the crowd that was walking around the street. "They look like normal people to me " she sighed, unimpressed.
That's when Coraline's gaze went to a boy walking down the sidewalk. She lifted her head off of he

Norman's feet were starting to ache more and more with each step he took. He hadn't even bothered to rest after Coraline had attacked him, since he was so determined to find her again. Psycho Norman had appeared once again shortly after, though he didn't have to walk much at all. "Will you just sit down for a minute or something? Jeez, you're gonna kill us both from exhaustion " he groaned, crossing his arms. "I'm not stopping. There's something wrong with Coraline, and I have to help her." Norman explained. "Help her? Seriously? She attacked us!" Psycho Norman argued. "She wants us dead!" "That wasn't her She wouldn't do that." Norman said stubbornly, though he was more or less just trying to convince himself that what he was saying was true. " You're lucky she didn't rip your freaking neck out " Psycho Norman grumbled. "Will you just shut up already?!" Norman snapped, whipping around to face him. Psycho Norman b

She had gone out of her way and done extra chores around the house so that Sandra could relax while she was pregnant. When her mother had woken up in the middle of the night screaming, Courtney had immediately panicked and rushed into her parents room to check on them. Her parents were both getting out of bed and her father was putting a coat on Sandra. Courtney tried to ask them what was going on, but Perry just told her to stay at the house with Grandma.

Norman walked to school in complete silence, ghosts staring at him with worry. He didn't bother talking to any of them, even when they asked him if he was alright. He just kept his head down, staring at the sidewalk as he thought about what he was about to do. It wasn't his best idea, and he knew that. But at this point he thought it was the right choice. Sometimes the right choice just seemed stupid. He sighed, rubbing his wrist a little nervously. After a moment he hissed in pain, pulling his hand away. "Damn it " he groaned, glancing down at his cut wrist. He had forgotten where that cut even was, so he hadn't expected to hit it. A few ghosts gathered around him to make sure he was alright, but he shooed them away politely. It wasn't the first time he had hit one of his cuts by accident, so he was pretty much used to it. Besides, it didn't hurt as much as when they were actually fre

Coraline was officially in panic mode. Norman wasn't waking up, and she wasn't entirely sure on how to perform CPR. She could very vaguely remember small bits of it from something she'd seen on TV, but that was about it. But that would have to do. She quickly started to push down on his stomach, hoping that she was doing it right. After a moment she groaned, realizing that it wasn't working very well. "C'mon, what else " she murmured to herself in panic. Her eyes snapped wide open when she had an idea. She looked down at Norman, blush rushing to her cheeks. " It's your only option, Coraline, just do it quickly and he won't even notice." She told herself. So she took a deep breath and leaned in close, nearly shaking from being so nervous. Before she did anything she remembered a few small details and plugged his nose before coming in close and doing mouth-to-mouth. She did it as carefully as she possibly could, hoping

Norman smiled brightly at the sight of the Pink Palace. We made it… We're going home… he thought. He jumped when he felt Coraline jump onto him, her arms wrapping around him tightly. He laughed a little, backing up at step to hold his balance. "We did it! Norman, we did it!" she exclaimed, quite clearly ecstatic. "We're gonna go home! Oh my gosh, we're finally gonna go home…" she hugged him a little tighter. Norman continued to smile, still laughing a little until something crossed his mind. Wait a minute… his smile slowly disappeared as realization dawned on him. Coraline seemed to realize his change of attitude and let go of him, a small smile still on her face as she looked at him. "… W-what's wrong…?" she asked in worry. "Norman, aren't you happy?" she asked. His head was hanging low, his eyes clouded. … She's going home… Not me he thought glumly. Coraline leaned down a little, trying to see his face. "N

The Witch crossed her arms angrily, rolling her eyes. "And it was going so well " she moaned in disappointment. She shrugged, no longer caring, and turned to the Other Mother. "They're on their way here, though it might take awhile for them to arrive." She explained. "We'll bring them here once they're ripe for the picking." The Other Mother smirked. "After all, I created this world, which means they get here when we decide." "True But it'll get quite boring if they just walk on and on " the Witch answered, thinking. "Don't worry." The Other Mother assured. "I know just the person to liven things up a little "
Coraline shot straight up, her fingers digging into her sides. She looked over at Norman, who was still sleeping soundly. They had decided to take a break from walking so they could rest for awhile and save their strength and relax. Though Coraline didn't really feel relaxed at all. For star

"Looks like she found your little doll."
"Yes, the vermin showed it to her " the Other Mother came up to the Blithe Hollow Witch, who was staring intently at a crystal orb. "She's going to warn him." The Witch pointed out, unimpressed. "He would've found out eventually anyways. Besides, it's already served its purpose." The Other Mother snapped her fingers, and in an instant the Norman doll flew in through the open window, landing in the Other Mother's hands. "Thanks to your spell, of course." She added, tossing the doll aside as it started to glow. "Now we just have to get them here." "And what luck that the snake took away his memory." The Witch smirked. "Oh, if only she had taken Coraline's as well." The Other Mother sighed, pouting. "Perhaps she will." The Witch pointed out. "We just have watch and wait."
" I'd show you the doll, but I left it back at the mansion." Coraline finished explaining. "Conside

Victor shook his head to snap himself out of his shocked trance and dropped the baseball bat, his helmet flying off as well as he rushed to the bases surrounding the field. Halfway to third base he heard a familiar bark and skidded to a stop, looking over at where the ball had landed on the street. His eyes widened in pure horror when he saw Sparky chasing after the ball as it rolled to the curb. Immediately Victor bolted towards his dog in a panic as Sparky simply picked up the baseball and began to trot over to his owner, unaware of the speeding car coming towards him. Victor spotted the car and picked up the pace, ignoring his parents shouts as they chased after him in an attempt to stop him. Without thinking of the consequences, Victor dived onto the street and pushed Sparky out of the way, a loud screech sounding out from the wheels of the car as it attempted to stop, followed by a sickening thud. Victor tumbled forward limply and the driver got out, rushing ov

Coraline ran to the hotel room as fast as she could. When she got there, her parents were getting ready to leave. The text they had sent had said that they were going out to eat and they wanted her back so she could get ready. "So where are we going to eat?" Coraline asked as she got ready. "Well, this kind woman invited us to eat at her place to make us feel welcome in town." Mel answered. "Now don't take too long getting ready. We don't want to keep them waiting!"
Soon they were all in the car heading for the house they were eating at. "Who are we eating with, anyway?" Coraline asked. "The Babcock's, Coraline. They're a very nice family!" Charlie answered. I'll be the judge of that! Coraline thought, smirking to herself.
Once they got to the house and they were out of the car, they went up and knocked on the door. After a few seconds, someone came down and swung the door open with a raised eyebrow. Coraline and the boy gasped simulta
ParaNorman - Howling At The Moon - Chapter 3Norman closed the door behind him and went over to his bed, still clutching his arm tightly. He flopped down on the bed, curling up into a ball as the pain in his arm grew immensely. His eyes were shut tight as he groaned, shaking as his breath quickened and he started to change. Courtney came up and knocked on the door loud enough for him to hear. "Norman, what are you doing in there?!" she demanded. Norman tried to answer her, but he couldn't talk no matter how hard he tried. So instead he screamed at the top of his lungs, praying she would get the message that she needed to get help. Courtney jumped back a little, then came up to the door again. "Norman, I'm coming in!" she announced. Don't come in! Get help! he thought in panic as the pain slowly started to fade away. He looked up as the door opened. The second Courtney saw him she shrieked, which caused him to scream as well, though it was more out of shock. Courtney slammed the door behind her as Norman fell off hisParaNorman - Howling At The Moon - Chapter 31 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
