Far behind the velvet curtains, the lights were growing dim. Only a few small, hanging bulbs illuminated the various figures as they scurried to find their places on the stage. A few nerve-wrecked musicians remained backstage, facing a gritty mirror that had been worn and cracked by decades of dust (and, perhaps, the notes of Opera singers). A stage manager rushed by angrily, barking that they had five minutes left until the curtain rose.
One musician remained at the mirror, despite the warnings. He scowled as he tried to forcefully flatten his rowdy hair, only to have it flair up again. "Damn you..." he growled at the uncooperative strands. They failed to give in, though, so he finally gave up.
He felt the sudden urge to grasp his Holophonor, and he did so without any further prompting. He sighed as his hands twirled the instrument nervously, a movement he had no control over.

As is usual for an episode of The Simpsons, our story begins in Springfield.
Bart Simpson wrote on the chalkboard "I will do something meaningful instead of writing a fic that celebrates an immortal show." As soon as the bell rang, he went out on his skateboard.
He bounced atop a pile of leaves Groundskeeper Willie was raking on his way, revealing Barney Gumble to be buried beneath the leaves.
We cut to the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant, where Homer once again leaves with a carbon rod under his shirt.
Lisa Simpson is yet again kicked out of music class by Mr. Largo for deviating from the song the class was supposed to play. As usual, she blissfully walked down the halls while still playing her saxophone.
Marge drives home with Maggie playing with a toy steering wheel. Both of them honk their horns, which wakes up Grampa, who was also in the car.
Eventually, the entire family made it home.
Everyone sat on the couch and sighed, as if they had been doing hard grueling work this past 27

The blue haired thirteen-year-old looked up from his sandwich and stared at his brother. "Different as in how?" he asked.
Sparky stirred his yogurt around in circles with his spoon, never once looking up. "Well, for one thing, we seem to be eating lunch under the washroom sinks every other day," he mumbled.
Galileo blinked and then looked about. He had almost forgotten where they were until he saw the tiled floor and the stalls across from them. They were, in fact, sitting beneath the sinks in the boys' washrooms at their school, something he and Sparky did certain days of the week when trouble was around. It was not that they enjoyed doing so, of course not; more because it was the only place safe for them to be when bullies were around.
They had hardly grabbed their lunch bags when the noon bell rang. And while other students rushed to their places in the cafeteria, the two stepbrothers rushed int

It was morning. Amy awoke with dreary eyes and glanced towards her digital alarm clock to notice that it was still quite a bit early. The time read 6:00 a.m. However, she knew that there would be no sense in going back to sleep since her dreams were filled with someone she'd rather not think about at the moment. A grim look came over her face as she rolled out of bed and headed towards her bathroom. Once in, she glanced at her reflection in the mirror and noticed her solemn expression, but then ignored it as she started to get ready.
When she had finished getting dressed and washed up, she headed downstairs towards her kitchen and started looking for something to eat. However, everything she glanced at didn't seem to satisfy her, so she decided to make some tea. While heating up the water in her tea kettle on the stove, she couldn't help but ponder on the many things that had been eating away at her for the past four days now.

Michael was not a regular smoker, but today he could not help himself as he endured the long, legal banter between his father, the lawyer, and the consigliere. The other men, except for a few of Fat Tony’s bodyguards, had been dismissed for the day. He glanced across the table through the cigar smoke, where his future “wife” remained calmly seated as the lawyer started to ask her questions, to which she gave equally-as-calm answers. Something about receiving money up-front. Brother and sister in jail over drug dealing? Michael barely remembered the baby Simpson, but he was mi

One average day in the state, a certain gang leader was participating in his usual activities of leading his gang.
"Get movin', you morons!" Mr. Large bellowed to his three minions from his limo. "We haven't got all afternoon to rob the electronics store!"
Ernie the Hat, Mickey the Shirt, and Rosie the Purse stared at their boss oddly. "Boss, I don't get it," Ernie spoke. "How do you expect to fit any of this store's TVs into the limo?"

But before Ernie, Mickey, and Rosie could bust into the store, they were suddenly knocked over by a flash of red and white. A flash of red and white that rang out "Chi-ka!"
Mr. Large apparently hadn't noticed the flash. "Get up, you idiots! You can't possibly be that clumsy!"

Moody stood outside the front of the ship after the trip that she had from the supermarket. The automatic door opened as she walked inside. The light taps from her feet echoed when she came inside. Everything was quiet. Moody wondered what happened to Gantu and 625.
The ship's door began to close and ended with light 'whoosh' sounds. She walked ahead and saw that Gantu was sleeping on a small red beanbag chair. He wasn't snoring and slept peacefully. Moody smiled at the calm sight. Gantu looked very peaceful when he was asleep, compared to his hotheaded attitude he sometimes gets.
She walked towards the kitchen and placed the groceries onto the table, and after the paper bag stopped crumpling, she began to hear soft whimpers. Moody perked up her ears and swiveled them around to pick up the tiny noise that caught her attention.
She walked out of the kitchen and heard that the nose was louder, as it echoed throughout the ship. She looked up towards the elevator and

Angel was in the kitchen while sitting by the sunlight that was rising up from the ocean. The sky was a bright pink, as daylight was soon on its way. The pink female experiment was wide awake, as she was busy with something that she had placed on the floor in front of her. She was twisting a couple of sticks together with her fingers. These sticks were fuzzy to the touch, and came in a variety of colors.
Angel picked up two different colors of the sticks and twisted them together. After that she twisted both ends of the stick until it formed a small O. Angel grinned at her creation that she put it on her arm.
