The Nutcracker and The Mouse King Chapter 1
*Vienna, Austria - 1892*
*It's a cold winter eve on the lonely streets. One such structure, a disheveled looking building right in the middle of the town, stands out amongst the town with it's eerie appearance. Through the frost-covered windows, we enter a dimly lit room, illuminated by the pale moon light. Walking across the light, a shadowy figure looms through the darkness. Pacing the floor is at most an unusual old man with a look of depression on his face. Course one could hardly read his expression, as most of his face was covered by his long white hair. Lifting his hair back reveals an eye patch over his right eye, though how that hap

*For a long moment, Marie's world is nothing but endless blackness. But right around then, she starts feeling a set of sensory stimulus. A loud voice echoes into her mind as she tries to put together on who's calling her. But then feels a sharp pain on her head at the same time. But then, after a while, the voice got clearer and clearer*
???: M-Marie… Marie? Marie?
*Marie slowly opens her eyes as she sees her mother and father looking down at her with worried expressions. Marie lifts a hand to her head and groans as she feels a bandage wrapped around her head. She tries to lift herself up, but only worsens the bruising so the parents bend o

*The next day, Marie paced all about her room, holding the Nutcracker and looking into his eyes*
Marie: What am I going to do? It's not that I don't trust that mouse; but what if the plan fails? I mean, I can't just keep giving candy. What if we run out? What if it's not good enough for him? WHAT IF HE TAKES YOU? *lifts the Nutcracker* Please… *tears flow down her eyes* Please… Say something… Anything. *weeps*
Nutcracker: *awakens* Please don't cry, Miss Stahlbaum. You don't have to give away your things just to keep me safe.

Drosselmeyer: Once upon a time, long, long ago…
*As Drosselmeyer speaks, a flashback sequence alters the scene as if the children were entering a dream. For what they imagine is a far away land, a kingdom on an island in the midst of an endless sea. A kingdom so majestic in architect with multiple towers, gliterring a silver gleam from the walls, with stained glass windows on each end, and a small garden right in the courtyard. The place where Drosselmeyer's story takes place*
Drosselmeyer: *narrating* There was a kingdom, far across the sea on a large island.
*There are several people who inhabit the island; despite not being big, it was

*Some time had passed since Littlefoot hatched from his egg. Not much has changed except Littlefoot was slightly bigger than when he was hatched. Along with his Mother and Grandparents, they stopped at a row of dead trees looking for food. All they could find to eat was the dry bark. The Mother wanders ahead to search for any leaves as Littlefoot struggles to eat*
Littlefoot: Mother, is this all there is to eat?
Mother: I'm sorry, my dear. The land has been changing. That is why we must walk as far as we can each day until we reach the Great Valley.

*It is late at night over by the Brisby Home, as her children await her return. The youngest mouse, small and yellow, had brown eyes and wore a green bow around her waist. The eldest son, young and gray, wore nothing but a blue shirt. But the eldest of all the children, a young brown female mouse, wore a pink bow on her head, a purple dress with a lilac top and a patch on the skirt. All of them barefoot. These were Brisby's children: Cynthia, Martin, and Teresa*
Martin (OOV): Maybe I should go look for Mom.
Teresa (OOV): I don't think so, Martin.

*It is the very next morning along the Fitzgibbons farmhouse. In the front yard, Mrs. Fitzgibbons is hanging out the wash. Unnoticed by her, a baby's baptismal gown suddenly comes to life and heads off across the yard towards the rosebush. It pauses as it passes Dragon, the creature is on his back sound asleep. The figure pulls the hood back, revealing itself to be Jeremy. He pauses to suppress a sneeze or two, and continues*
Jeremy: Mrs. Briz! Fellas!
*Jeremy reaches the rosebush and trips over a low branch. By chance, Mrs. Brisby and her friends just happen to be there*
Jeremy: Oh, excuse me, pardon me.

*Meanwhile, in a darkened room with very little light, a long silence filled the room. In the midst, the Council, an alliance of many vast and colorful villains, stood in their seats and neither one of them said a word knowing what had just occurred. For at the very middle of the council, Mirage stood before the gaze of the unseen leader of the team, who looks down at her with his fiery red eyes. Though he's barely seen in the darkness, those eyes alone proved greatly that he was not happy with what happened. The very gaze alone was enough to make even "The Queen of Evil" show a bit of fear*

Marie: *opens her eyes and jolts out of her sleep* NUTCRACKER!!!
*Marie takes a few deep breaths as she holds herself together. Confused, she looks down and finds she is tightly holding the blankets on her bed. She turns all around to see her surroundings. Marie is back in her own room, in her own house. Marie rubs one hand along her brow, feeling a bead of sweat on her head. Her other hand brushes along her nightgown but then she feels something small in one of her pockets. She looks down at her right pocket, sticks her hand inside, lifts something out of it, and opens her palm. To her surprise, she sees The Mouse King's crown with the seve

Marie: I never even knew such a place existed, under our own roof too!
Nutcracker: I'm just as surprised as you are.
Cassim: There are so many wonders that mankind has yet to fully discover. There's so much to this day that no one knows about… But that's what makes an adventure: To seek the unknown.

*Before long, it was getting very late at night in the Stahlbaum household. The parents waved goodbye to all their friends, as they prepped for departure and left the house on their horse-drawn carriages. The last to leave was Drosselmeyer, who shook hands with the parents as his eye turns to Marie, who is following Fritz to bed. She turns around briefly only to see him give a wink as he leaves and the parents shut the door. Soon the family gets into bed as it got close to midnight and yet during that time Marie couldn't sleep. She laid in her bed with her eyes open, all she could think about was the story and how bad the Nutcracker had durin

She couldn't tell what they were through the water so she pulls herself out and takes a closer look at both Logan & Littlefoot. It was Ducky and yet only Logan notices that she's there while Littlefoot is in a deep thought of sorts*
*Littlefoot doesn't reply*
Ducky: I said hello. *watches a tear fall down Littlefoot's cheek and into the stream* What is your name? *gasps* Maybe you cannot talk yet. Huh? Huh?

For other than his friend and mode of transport, Max, a new crew member stands by his side: Popeye the Sailor*

It looks up to see that it is lying on it's back, as he slowly lifts his back and breathes a deep sigh. He turns all around to notice other figures in the area, all of them out cold. There was a man dressed in an old fashion sailor's uniform muttering in his sleep and a human-like rat in Renaissance clothes swishing his tail side-to-side. The viewer then slowly turns to the other side where a night elf rests with it's back along some wall while a Snow Leopard lie

"Logan Meets The Pagemaster"
*Soon the words are wiped off as a series of shapes are formed: From a pirate ship, to a foreboding looking manor as a wolf howls in the background, followed by a fearsome dragon blowing a puff of smoke towards a mystery figure armed with a sword and shield. Seemingly unrelated these cloud formations and yet to some it may appear to be a foreshadow of events soon to pass. A flash of light crashes in the background, followed by the

*A mere moments ago, waves of paint had splashed around Richard Tyler. Now, all that appears is this blue space out in front of him. He doesn't move, however, as if still getting over the shock and not sure whether he was alive or if he died. A tapping sound snaps him back to reality and a voice calls out to him. From the sounds of it, as his hearing cleared, it was a male voice*

Bonnie: Guys… Where are we anyway?
*Everyone looked to see what Bonnie was referring to and they were shocked with what they see. It looked more like part of a graveyard than a library, considering there was a night sky, dead branches, leaves flowing, and the books looked more like tombstones. Still, seeing this place sent a spine-tingling chill and it wasn't just the night air either*
Fantasy: *sighs* Oh, baby.
Richard: Are we still in the library?

As they helped each other up, they stood right before the entire crew of the ship, who eyed them with evil intentions, all of them ugly and had violent intentions as they stuck their knives out toward them. Richard backs away into the clutches of another pirate, who holds a cutlass to the young boy‘s neck*

They just sit by the beach watching the waves slide against the sand back-and-forth, a long silence between them except for the occasional sighs. All of them felt sad, but none more than Richard. A boy who felt on the verge of giving up, practically writing the word "Exit" on the sands. It stands there for a moment before a wave washes off the word and the Pagemaster's voice could be heard in his head*

*Nodding in agreement, the group slowly approached the massive doors not sure what lies behind or if they face a danger greater than anything they have faced during this whole journey. At first, they didn't know how to get in as they were hardly any door knobs or handles, at least from where they stood compared to the doors. Just as they reached out, amazing the doors opened by themselves as they marveled at what was inside. A massive room seemingly with nothing but a swirl of blue energy like a tornado*
