Sweeney had been standing in his shop for hours, in front of the huge window so he could see all that happened in Fleet Street or rather, who walked there and might head towards the barber shop. It was night now, so his shop was closed, but there wasnt anything else he had to do, so he just kept standing there, staring outside.
Suddenly, an awkwardly familiar figure appeared from the darkness in a pool of light from a street lantern. It was the Beadle.
Sweeney clenched his hands in excitement when the person outside walked towards the building where the two shops were. Sweeney smiled devilishly; the man was so vain that he would come to ask for a shave, even if it was late in the evening and all the shops were closed.
But when the man came closer, Sweeney could see that Bamford had already had a shave.
The barber hissed in disappointment, but when the Beadle continued walking in the direction of the building with the two shops, Sweeney felt another stron

Days were dull in wonderland. Although, all had been restored to its original luster. Sans the Red Queen. As usual, insanity still plagued the kingdom. Yet, the lunacy was cold and monotonous. When everyone was mad, who was unique? Where were the fuddy duddies and "upstanding citizens" to fool with? Where were the people to tell you the "proper" way to live? Where was she
The White Queen could see the vacant expression on the Mad Hatter's face. Her dainty brows flittered towards empathy. She knew. He hadn't done the futterwacken since- she was here. The Queen glided over towards his seat at the long tea table beside the blossoming cherry trees outside of her castle. She stopped and starred at his now cold tea with a blossom drifting across the surface, with help from the breeze. Her pale hand lightly touched his cheek and he startled out of a dream. "Oh! Your majesty. Lovely spring day. Wouldn't you agree?" He said with a forced smile. She nodded gently and looked up at the flowe

"And now," Brom's double said, "We're going to explore the benefits of existing outside this mortal plane."
Bromthe real Brom, as far as he knewstood watching himself snicker as Ichabod Crane rode up on horseback, looking ridiculous on the old nag of a horse named Gunpowder. It had seemed a good deal funnier then.
He turned to his double. "What do you mean?"
With an infuriating smile, the double pointed to a spot in the foliage, which was moving ever so slightly. It could have been rabbits, or squirrels. But as Brom moved closer, he discovered the true source of the movement.
"Will?" he exploded.
Willem was crouched behind a tree, half hidden by the leaves of a fallen branch. He was peering out at the scene before him intently, oblivious to Brom or his mysterious guide.
"It may have been the Witch," Theodore murmured to Glen. Brom, who was preoccupied with watching Crane, merely nodded absently.

whispers in the rain
remembering I'm free
lonely. Sun shines brighter
fields of hapiness,
love and music
standing still and listening
hope flies away
and stays with me
Sounds of life and smell of death
taking one deep breath
dying every day
find my own way
that’s what happens to me every day
when butterflies thinking of winter wonderland,
when moles dig to the other end of the world,
when trees closed their eyes
mermaids from the ocean are at home in the forest.
I wonder why
I left my lovely forest lie
and fly back home.

The bells ring out
On this glorious day
Loved ones come
All will gather
Within one room
Both the kin
Of Bride and Groom
Here the Father
Will take a stand

Awaiting with pride

His words of grace

In the morning Jack, Angelica and Alicia boarded a ship to Tortuga, they had gotten lucky and ran into a few pirates that Jack had known and had not yet slighted. They were happy to take the trio to Tortuga considering they were going there themselves. Along the way, Alicia proved to be a handful, considering they were on a ship, Jack nor Angelica had figured that she could get herself into too much trouble. Alicia proved them wrong. She would often bother the pirates with questions or a quick swipe of someone's sword, without them noticing and running off and using it as a play thing. She even figured out how to fire one of the canons which luckily only hit open water. The entire crew, and Jack and Angelica, were exhausted by the time they made it to Tortuga. The crew liked her spirit though and mentioned to Jack that for a woman she could be a good pirate some day and to bring her back when she was less lively.

This morning was not the same as any other typical morning. No, this morning will be the start of your second term in college. Winter term to be exact.
Slowly, you opened your eyes and let them adjust to the daylight that seeped through the curtains of the window. Once adjusted, the first image you caught was the alarm clock; silently flashing red numbers. 7:45am.
Thankfully, your first class will start at 8:30am and the college was just a ten minute drive from your pent house.
Usually the first days of school would make you nervous and feel sick, but strangely enough this time around the sick gut feeling was absent. The nervousness was all but a tiny flutter of butterflies, barely affecting you.
Sitting up, you stretched and yawned, popping your back in the process. Jumping out of the queen sized bed, you dragged yourself to the closet and picked yourself an outfit. Nothing too fancy nor too plain. It was a nice "this is me" outfit.
Yawning again, you strolled into
