(Scene: Fidget [from "The Great Mouse Detective"] comes up on a stage, in front of an audience)
(waves "hello") Hey, there.
(looks around) Is he gone? OK, that's good.
My name's Fidget, & I just want to say that I didn't always have this peg-leg, or a broken wing. I also want to say that I didn't always work for Ratigan. My story is a very touching one, & you'll really want to pay attention.
(inhales deeply) OK, here goes nothing. (clears throat)
I was born in London in 1882. My mother was a prostitute. One day, she, um . . . "did things" with a guy. Then she got pregnant, & had me. My mom loved me a whole lot, but she couldn't keep me. So she put me up for adoption.
I lived in the orphanage until I was 3 years old. Then, a guy named Matthew Lowell came up, & adopted me. Then he sent me to work in a factory with other kids just like me.
And it was NOT a pretty sight, let me tell you. We

Chapter 7: Insanity
The doctor and the detective sat in shocked silence for several moments as Fidget rocked back and forth on the sofa. Images from the Flaversham case flashed through their minds, particularly of the crazed rat atop Big Ben; and for the second time in the past few weeks, Basil found himself involuntarily rubbing his scarred arm, while a dull pain throbbed in his back.
Dawson shook his head. "Ratigan alive ?" he whispered incredibly.
Basil quickly replaced the initial shock on his face with his usual impenetrable mask of reason. Though he very sincerely doubted that the Professor could have survived a fall from that height, he needed to know exactly what Fidget had seen. "Fidget, are you absolutely sure? What did he say to you?"
Fidget glanced up at the detective with what appeared to be an expression of complete confusion. "What did who say to me?"
Basil blinked. "What ? R-Ratigan " the name left an unpleasant taste in his mou

Chapter I - Fidget the Reformed
All throughout England and her territories, unbeknownst to the human populace, there is a thriving society as diverse and colourful as its own; a kingdom of the furry beasties most come to regard as pests. It is known as the Mousedom, though mice are not its only citizens. A great deal of other percieved vermin adapt to its civilised ways and live in the Mousedom - lizards, rats and bats are just a few to name. But it is the mouse, first and foremost, that dominates their society. So much so that other species are often looked down upon in disgust.
Not too long ago a great mouse detective, the famous Basil of Baker Street, managed to finally outmatch and defeat his archnemesis: the vile and manevolent Professor Ratigan after the Professor attempted the regicide of Queen Mousetoria and the conquest of Mousedom for himself. The events leading up to this included the kidnapping of a

Minnie's head was resting on Junior's chest while she peacefully dreamed of a dark and dreary underworld that she had since forgotten about. She lifted her head and looked up at her sibling. "Big brother?"
Junior yawned as he woke from his sleep. "Yea? What's up?"
"I wanna go home now." He looked at her confused. He didn't understand what she was talking about. He really had forgotten all about the underworld. "Brother, don't tell me that you have forgotten about our mother and father. Surely they are waiting for us to return?"
"I'm not sure I understand..." SMACK! It hit him. How could he have just forgotten everything?! Alright, time to leave. He simply summoned his scythe and smiled at her. They stood up and with a swipe of the blade a portal to the underworld was open.

Chapter III - Eve of War
Hiram Flaversham didn't hate the bat, nor did he have any moral quams with him. Indeed, he rather admired the young chap. Still, when he had confronted his daughter about her recent change in attitude, her skipping meals and retreating to her room only to lay upon her bed and think for hours before sleeping he could not say he was happy with the answers.
It had been less than a week after the extravagent Christmas Party (which was held two weeks prior to the actual Holiday) in the year of 1908. Hiram had definately noticed Olivia becoming a beautiful young woman in her own right, though he hated to admit it. In fact, she was nineteen. Still, she stayed unwed, which did not help the aging Flaversham from seeing her as a the little eight-year old child he adored. He never put much thought into why she would turn down so many suitors, nor did he pay much mind to the increasing c

Chapter 1: It's Time Again...
SOMEONE! ANYONE! SAVE ME! screams a man running as fast as his legs can carry him. Running through crowds, shaking those in his way asking the same incoherent question that leaves all to believe he is insane.
Doesnt anyone see that?! Someone do something!
His cries fall upon deaf ears as onlookers watch the raving blood covered man.
Please! Death is after me! Oh god! the man cries as tears begin trickling out of his eyes.
But it is true what the man says, Death is after him, and he follows with quite the annoyed expression.
Sigh, I turn my back for one minute on the guy, he hops back into his body and goes rampant on the town! This is ridiculous!

First I am loved,
Then I hear nothing of your feelings,
I say "I love you"
But all I get is a smile.
What went wrong?
You were so eager,
So sweet, so special,
Now I feel like I have been left behind.
At night am I the last thing you think of?
I know in my head you are,
When you wake up,
Do you think about seeing me?
Do you miss me when I'm gone?
These are just words,
No affection or emotion,
But you cannot even manage words,
Let alone physical actions,
Where did you go?
I sometimes wonder,
If I did the right thing,
If I feel for the right person,
If the hearts had any sentiment,
If the song you named after me was true.

Awaiting for death at the door
You question my own desicion
Why do you yearn for more?
I've given you immortality
Nothing awaits you but hell
Why do you persist to annoy me
There is nothing more to tell
Years of torture and pain
Me at your constant beck and call
Turned out different than I had planned
I had never meant to fall
As you grew from girl to woman
My weakness began to show
I tried so hard to deny it
But one day, I just had to know
I came to your door
You asked if it was time
I nodded and just had to say
"Mandy, will you be mine?"
Surprise was your first reaction
Later you questioned my sanity
I answered with what was in my heart
That is, if I had any
Ten to one, and down in went
Time was running out
You gave no answer, till one was said
But finally you gave a shout
Bonds of morality cut
From the moment you said, I do
Since then, life has been splendid
I would be nothing without you

Kailas looked at Sokka from the corner of her narrowed eye. Against her clean, crisp crimson sleeveless shirt with its phoenix embroidery, long black pants, and unsullied black boots, his worn, patched, and dirty clothes seemed shabby, and he felt it. He turned away first, and she was satisfied. This is the best location for all of you to live without people asking prying questions. Its large enough to house all of you comfortably, close enough to the water that you can waterbend, and theres a mountain nearby for earthbending.
But did it have to be the one broken-down house in the city? Sokka asked, arms crossed over his chest as he glared at the house. The roof looked to be in shambles, a number of its layered tiles cracked or broken. Some places were bare to the rafters, though they were few and far between. What

"For the last time I am not a robot!" Dib argued with Zim tailing behind him. Usually he was the one watching Zim's every move but this time it was reversed. Earlier that day Zim had been adding small mentions to Dib that sounded stupid at first but now was just annoying. Talking about mechanisms and the abnormal features on Dib. About his head and wondering how his body supported such a burden of weight. Zim had poked fun at his head before, but not as often in a single day.
"How long have you had those glasses anyway?"
"Pfft I don't know, as long as I can remember- Argh! Just go away Zim! You're giving me a headache."
"And that arm control nerve. You're the only one with one. Where do you think it came from?"
Dib spun around irritated at Zim. "Are you going to follow me all the way home? Go home and try plotting something stupid!"

You're no stranger to this mask,
The box you keep of magik and tricks,
"Nothing a little lip gloss won't fix."
You open the box, contents unfurled,
Your barricade from this world,
Powder and lipstick create a fake smile,
Her pale face must not be seen, it's not her style.
Eyeliner lies, hides faith from your eyes,
Blusher conceals and burns what is real.
Why can't you see,
Beauty is for free?
Elegance is from within,
Not man made from a tin.
You hate yourself, you lack esteem,
Boys in your class are all so mean,
Due to remarks; some blunt, some witty,
You open your box and pray,

I'll lock it up somewhere,

My heart may hurt,

Waiting for you,

Dreaming of you,

You left so long ago,

A young bat, age sixteen, hurried to his home on Baker Street, a scarf pulled tightly around his neck to protect him from the December frost. It was late and he had managed to sneak out for a drink or two with some of his escaped old criminal friends in celebration of the coming New Year. He had to do so in secret due to his guardians, the famous Basil of Baker Street and his assistant David Q. Dawson, both having quams with the drinking habits he had acquired in his criminal youth.
"Fidget!" A voice called to him from nearby and his ears perked up in alarm. His back, tensed at the prospect of having been caught, relaxed as he recognized the voice's owner: none other than his good friend, the young Olivia Flaversham. He turned and smiled, waving at the approaching Scottish mouse.
"'Ello toots." He greeted when she was only a foot away from him. His smile

I regret it now; I finally see....
It's time to set these feelings free
That once almost destroyed me.
You probably don't think it's true,
But, yes, I was in love with you.
I just now realized that we're through,
And I think it's split my heart in two.
Even though I know we're over,
Sometimes I still look over my shoulder,
Hoping it's me that you're looking at, though you're holding her.
I can feel my heart freeze.....It gets colder and colder.
One day soon it will break,
But what difference does it make?
I have realized my mistake,
But, alas, it is too late.
To have ever loved in the first place
Was what brought me to such disgrace.
By staying here, I'm losing face.
By leaving, my hopes go to waste.
I won't try to get back together;
I don't think that would work, not ever,
But losing you's got me feeling rather
Not quite right....under the weather.
I know you may not get this letter;
That's probably for the better,
