"YOU LOST THE WHAT!?!" Once-ler yelled. "We lost the house, we have no where to live. And we were wondering if we could all move in with you and Yidney?" "No, her name is Sydney mother. And I don't want you ruining our marriage. So you're on your own!" is what Once-ler should have said. What he really said was "Of course you can move in with me and Yidney!" and he hugged his mother.
At Sydney's and Once-ler's place...
"YOU WHAT!?!" Sydney yelled at Once-ler. "Oh come on Sydney! They're my family!" "ONCE-LER! DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY TIMES THEY TRIED TO MAKE US BREAK UP!?!" Once-ler flinched at her calling him by his real name. She only called him Once-ler when she was really mad at him. "I'M NOT SURE WHAT I'M MORE PISSED AT!

He went through everything in his closet to find the perfect outfit, he went back to the coffee shop to talk to the waitress, and he practiced his answers to questions. He did everything to become prepared for the date. Why is he doing all of this for just one girl? One girl that he had just met? Well, the reason why is because there was something about this girl. All he wanted to do is have her in his arms. He didn't want to mess it all up.Sydney can be a girl's name too! Chapter 3 in Profiles More Like This
One thing he did is, make sure his family didn't know. Them knowing would mess it all up. They'd want to meet her on the first date and scare her away. Like they did with every girl he went out with.

Let's have ice cream!"
Derek took Oncie's hand and took him out for ice cream and a movie (BONUS!). That was when Once-ler realized something, All my life, I always thought that the world didn't like me, he thought, and that's why it put me in such a horrible family! When, the world just wanted me to go through a h
What happened to Oncie's Dad (my version)It was a bright and sunny Sunday afternoon and, a 7 year old Once-ler was in the attic, looking for something to share for show and tell tomorrow. He was looking through a box when he found a picture of a young woman, who looked like a younger version of his mother, and a young man, who looked alot like Once-ler! The young man had the same shade of black hair he had, the same blue eyes, even the same freckles! There was a few differences (decides age, of coarse!), like the man had more of a oval shaped head, and he had a bit of a 12 'o'clock shadow too.What happened to Oncie's Dad (my version) in Profiles More Like This

When he got there he peered through the trees to see what was going on. There was a huge RV in the middle of the field where Once-ler's house lay. He could see Oncie hugging a woman with large (and obviously dyed) blonde hair, she let go then a very small and balding man hugged Once-ler too. The Lorax came bustling through and said a few things that Jack could not make out. Then either a very large and ugly woman or a cross dressing man stepped up and said a few things which Jack couldn't hear. Next Once-ler said something-that was once again muffled- then Jack heard very clearly and loudly from the Lorax, "THAT'S A WOMAN!?!".

'I'm glad you love it..!' he thought as he gently picked up his daughter, smiling down at her. He gently placed her in the crib, stroking her chubby cheek. He looked down at the thneed, smiling at the item that made him famous.
The next day, Once-ler returned tot he village to try to sell his thneed. It was probably an excuse to see Brooke again, but he didn't care. 'The thneed is good, the thneed is great-' he was cut off by a red-haired little girl taking his guitar and breaking it in half. Brooke loved hearing his voice, it was very soothing and calming. She glared at the the people who were applauding the little girl, she hated how the people were treating him, 'I wish they would give you a chance..!' she said to herself, hoping no one would hear her.

Once-ler said, jerking back on the rope that was attached to Melvin. Melvin loved Alessa, possibly due to the fact that she always wants to pet him and was willing to do anything for her, Brett and Chett on the other hand was something of a different story. Brooke dragged out Alessa's stroller then placed her in it, smiling as her daughter started to hit the different colorful rattles that hung above her. Brooke placed some of the groceries in the bottom of the stroller, the diaper bag on her shoulder. Pipsqueak and chum saw this as thier chance to ride the wagon.

Once upon a time, in a faraway land, a young prince lived in a shining castle. Although he had everything his heart desired, the prince was spoiled, selfish, and unkind. But then, one winter's night, an old beggar woman came to the castle and offered him a single rose in return for shelter from the bitter cold. Repulsed by her haggard appearance, the prince sneered at the gift and turned the old woman away. But she warned him not to be deceived by appearances, for beauty is found within. And when he dismissed her again, the old woman's ugliness melted away to reveal a beautiful enchantress.

Because he was unable to see into Ted's mind, a peculiar mental defense that had the old man baffled. What was so important that he would keep even his good friend, the Once-Ler out? He had no idea, and because he couldn't see into the teen's mind. Figuring out what was taking place would be hard. He had to deduce everything from the information Audrey was telling him.
Mrs. Wiggins didn't seem to concerned. After all, if Audrey said she saw her son, she believed her. One question did hang over her though. Why as a child? It barely made any sense. Not that sense or reason meant much in the world of the mind. It was like Wonderland, just not as dangerous but just as insane. Talking animals and singing trees. Most of it a scholar would write off as hallucinations. Yet, if they had known her son, their deductions might be different.

He was just as charming and hospitable, as her son had said he was. There wasn't a minute that went by that he wasn't asking them if they wanted anything. And to think the old man was once filled with greed, and had destroyed the eco system was unheard of. As was his invention, 'The Dream Reader'.
The old man never explained why he had built it. Too him, it was just a project that got him motivated one day. Either her nor Audrey had actually seen it. According to the Once-Ler. His contraption was able to see into someone's dreams. He was also able to communicate to someone while they slept. Such a device sounded unnatural and downright ludicrous.

RQ - 1 2 3 4 (Once-lerxOC)It was a beautiful night in the Truffula forest.RQ - 1 2 3 4 (Once-lerxOC) in Short Stories More Like This
The sky was clear, stars were shimmering brightly in the dark night sky, and the hypnotic-like chirps from the crickets hidden away in the green grass had seemed to sooth all the creatures into a deep slumber. That was, of course, for a certain brown-haired girl who was taking a midnight stroll through the forest taking in the Truffula tree's pleasant aroma and occasionally reaching up to run her pail hand carefully across the soft tufts.
Her name was Autumn, and, despite her normal appearance, she wasn't a human.
Autumn, you see, was actually the spirit of a Truffula tree. That is, until, his magical creature name The Lorax brought her to life. The mustached guardian said it was to show The Once-ler that trees really did have inner life, and weren't just hunks of wood in the ground. Speaking of The Once-ler; he was the reason Autumn was taking a walk instead of sleeping like the others.
She just...couldn't stop thinking about him
The reunion of a father and daughter - chapter 1The sun was just rising over a now pro-tree city named Thneedville. It was a time where the nite shift hadn't quit ended, but the morning shift hadn't quit started either. Even children who always got up early to watch Saturday morning cartoons also were still sound asleep. It seemed almost everyone in town was still in a deep state of slumber.The reunion of a father and daughter - chapter 1 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
That was, of course, except for a certain mother of the boy who had brought Truffula trees back into existence.
Her name was Helen Wiggins, and she was currently leaning over her kitchen counter looking out the nearby window. She was wearing a pink bath robe with a cup of freshly made coffee in her favorite green mug. The curly brown-haired women was currently looking out to the spot where, just two months earlier, the oak-a-matic artificial tree was standing proudly with it's fake leaves and disco feature which she had adored so. But, now in it's place, stood a mid-sized pink Truffula tree surrounded by patches of actual growing green grass. Do

“I know Audrey...but what can we do?” Ted asks the red-head beside him. “I mean...we're only kids. Besides, we aren't even meant to be in this time!”
“Well...maybe that's why we were sent here. To stop this.” Audrey suggested meekly. Ted only sighed.
You see, for awhile now, the two had been living in the past. That's right...the literal past. Even though how it happened or how they could get back was still a mystery to them, (the possibility that it was the Lorax's doing seemed most-likely) but they still tried to make the best of their situation. Ted and Audrey spent many hours simply taking in the beauty of the Truffula Forest together, played with the many creatures that inhabited the land, and surprisingly...even made friends with the younger version of Once-ler. And, despite not even knowing the two, Once-ler had treated them with nothing but kindness.
He had offered them a place

You see, the lanky man had been forcibly woken up from his slight-sleep by that murderous robot that brought him there in the first place, and was immediately thrown in with the other inmates. From there he was put in the back of the long line he was currently in, and there he waited.
“Me. The famous Once-ler, waiting in line for prison food with a bunch of low-life inmates.” Once-ler continues whining as the line moved at snail-like speed. Luckily none of the other inmates seemed to notice (or didn't care about) the insults he made, but...he did get some...unwanted attention from the thugs and thieves in the cafeteria.
“Look! It's fresh meat!”
“Damn, he's tall! But he has a baby-face...I bet he won't last the week before he kills himself!”

Maybe I need to go check on her...Helen ponders, but, almost as soon as she thinks it, her mother comes down the stairs. Her now-gray hair was in a mess of curls as always, and she was wearing her favorite lime-green dress with a small pink pull-over jacket that had a lighter pink flower-petal like pattern around it's collar. Helen then hopped off the couch, and went to the bottom of the steps to greet her mother when she got there.
"Well hello, Helen." her mother greeted once she she got to the bottom of the stairs.
"Mom!" Helen exclaimed seeing her mother finally awake and downstairs. "Good morning!"
"Well, someone is in a good mood this morning." Helen's mother, Norma, says teasingly. "I take it someone woke up on the good side of the bed?"

Once-ler subconsciously knew this as he sat hunched over his desk tirelessly crunching number over and over again. He was trying to figure out how in the hell only a few week ago the trees were estimated to last twenty more years to just yesterday suddenly only having less than six days before their demise.
“Come on...there has to be something I'm missing!” Once-ler grumbled as he continued to work.
The lanky business man then started over again in hope of getting a different outcome but, as soon as he starts, a familiar voice is suddenly heard.
“You know about the fate the forest...yet you won't shut the factory.” a very weary, disappointed voice observes. Once-ler then looks up to see a certain guardian of the forest coming in through the balcony window. His mustache and fur were actually filthy, and dark black rings due to either lack of sleep or constant worrying (possibly both?) were found around his eyes.

The memory of what had happened the night before surface, and when he sees the pocket watch Warden had gave him clutched protectively in his hand, the lanky man smiles widely. Of course...a sudden blank of what had went on the night previous causes him to get slightly concerned, but the really odd thing that he noticed was...a faint taste of fruit mixed with a certain type of alcohol on his tongue.

Of course...like all things, his big mouth ruined it all.
After recovering from his and Wardens confrontation, just like Jared warned, things changed for the worst. Once-ler's private cell had been given to two other inmates, and out of spite, Warden told Jared to put him in one of the cells with an inmate convicted of rape.

There was a sense of justice throughout the courtroom.
Of course, no one was more proud that Naomi. Ever since she had gotten the evidence to the police and it went public (which in reality was only five days previous - give or take), people have been behind her in the effort to take down the monster know as Isabella.
And now, they all had retribution.
Two policemen then "escorted" the blond women out of the courtroom, and people began filing out as well. Of course, before Naomi could get anywhere, a detective who had been assigned to Isabella's case stops her.

No one was here, the trees were gone, the factory torn apart. However, Once-Ler's house still remained together. I hesitate toward the door slightly, dusting off my light blue dress.

Looking over at Once-Ler, still shirtless and breathing small light breaths. A smile on his face, his gloves still on. I sit , my feet now lightly touching the floor.

"Aren't you at all worried about this?" I feel him shrug, sitting up with me, holding my hands.
"A little, but I'm more nervous. This isn't going to be some rinky dinky operation anymore. Thneeds are huge. The company is going to be huge." He says, I just nod, staring away from him and thinking hard about this. I'm worried where all of it is going to lead us. Immediate success is so rare. This wasn't gradual at all.

"Now let's just go fix ourselves a hot chocolate and flip on the tube!" She said, calmly poking my nose and setting my body behind her as she strolled into the kitchen. She had torn up my heart. My technique. My life.
I sat down in the living room, surfing through channels, thinking hard. Mother had never been supportive. Finally, it hit me.. I stood up, looking cautiously around the living room, sneaking up the stairs on my toes.

I creep outside our door, looking back and forth suspiciously. Sneaking through back yards I come to the wall of Thneedville, tracing along it with my hands and every now and then looking back to make sure no one was watching. If O'hare found out... Well, it wouldn't be pretty. I came across a door, a combination required to enter. I approached it quietly with my ear and listened as I turned the knob carefully and heard it beginning to unlock. Finally, in a loud abruption, it opened. I sneak behind it quickly and slam it shut, hoping no one had noticed or heard. As I stepped into the now even more smog infested area I noticed, coming out from the walls, were pipes, dripping a river of chemical waste out of Thneedville. I winced at the smell.

Months had passed, four to be exact. Everyone had been evacuated into "Thneedville". It was under strict orders that we not speak of the trees, a declaration of Mr. O'hare. It felt almost like an overthrown environment. Nothing was living here in Thneedville besides us humans. No animals, no plats. Just plastic and fake. I got a job, as a receptionist for Mr. O'hare. Now living out of my mothers home and about to deliver a young child named Eva in exactly one month. Daydreaming, staring at my computer screen and lightly touching it I begin to think about Once-Ler. How happy would he be about our daughter? How angry would he be without me telling him?

"Once-Ler?" He was wearing a green, pin striped, tail coat, a tie, some soft silk green gloves, a gold watch hanging in the pocket of his black dress pants. A top hat placed upon his head, lengthening his height by at least 2 feet. Finally, a small truffula tuft stuffed within his coat pocket.
"Pretty snazzy, right?" He does a turn for me, grinning afterward as if to draw my attention more. He cleaned up nicely and looked VERY good. But something didn't fit right. I smile at him, getting up from bed and kissing his cheek. I walk over to the fridge, ready to make pancakes when suddenly, he shuts the fridge in front of me. He shakes his finger and takes my hand,

She began tugging at it viciously, but I only continued to walk along side of Once-Ler. He sighs heavily and stops walking, shaking his head, his eyes tightly closed as he pinches the bridge of his nose.

He turned around and saw the stage behind him, knowing that stage would be full of instruments and the chairs all around him would be full of attendance. He glanced over and saw Skips and Pops with flyers in their hands, setting them on telephone posts and on the side walls of the buildings of downtown.

And then an important memory came rolling back in Memory Lane.

Rigby stood back and watched his parents kiss each other.

"Well, I got to get going, hun," exclaimed Rigby's father as he gave his wife a kiss good-bye. "See ya later, sport! You too, Don." He said as he patted Rigby and Don both on the head. And with that said, he was out of the front door.
He never came back.
He usually was home around 5, and later on in the evening, he arrived home about 9 PM.

He finished brushing, spit out toothpaste and rinsed his mouth out with some mouthwash. Putting the cap back on, he stared at himself in the mirror. He reached over and grabbed his towel, wiping the remaining water on his beak.
The blue jay made his way out of the bathroom, out of his room and out into the hallway. Quietly, he sneaked to the end of the hallway to where Rigby's bed would be.

He turned the corner and walked up to Rigby's bed, looking directly at the note. He picked up the envelope, open

In my place stands Sofia, arms raised, as if it will prevent the racer from attacking me. It’s amusing to see a short petite twelve year old girl blocking the way from a five foot grown man.
“Leave Turbo alone! Pick on someone your own size!”
The man simply looks down at Sofia, with an amused look on his face. He then roughly picks up the girl by her hoodie, and smirks. Sofia, lifted off the ground, struggles around a bit, her fists clenched together as if ready to fight.
“Listen shrimp, stay out of this!”
“It’s SOFIA, and I am no shrimp! And you better leave Turbo alone or else!”
“Or else what? What can a shrimp like you possibly do to me!?”
Silence ensued for a few seconds.

Thousands of monitors like the ones I’ve seen in some first person shooter games floated from video to video. Some videos would get more monitors than others, crowding around the holographic screen like children looking at candy.

Like the World Wide Web, large skyscrapers surround us, but unlike the Web with its pure white environment; this city is full of color, with a bright blue sky, and the skyscrapers enhancing the scene with its reflection.

Who read every fairy tale

But he is known for loyalty
With a noble soul within

Turning my frown upside down

To let me lean on your shoulder
When my world was dark
You were the light that shined through
Giving my life new meaning
Setting me on a brighter path
You are the greatest gift of all

Not a creature was stirring nor humming
Not Even a Humming Fish

In hopes of St. Nicholas would come

For he was estatic for Santa Clause coming
He got into his bed all nestled and warm
While dances of pancakes and marshmellows
Danced around in his head with music notes
As he drifted off to Dreamland with Pip by his side
Then out of the blue
Was the sound of wings
Flapping in the air
That woke the two straight up
Once-ler picked up Pip
As he ran to his curtain window
Rolled it right up to see what was the matter
And behold to he and Pip's eyes was a sight to behold

Pulling a small wooden sleigh with a little driver inside
They flew over the Truffula Trees heading to the cottage
And made a soft landing on top of the rooftop

Another shriek as sharp claws dug into thin arms, teeth biting a collarbone, bright red blood bubbling up from the punctured skin.

Patrons sat at tables, the men in expensive suits, silk ties, the women wearing evening gowns and ropes of pearls about their necks. It was nice, the atmosphere inviting, but not one he would normally go in. He glanced behind him, wondering when the mechanic would arrive, figuring he might as well sit and have a drink, smoke a little as he waited for his automobile to be fixed.

The river was still running through the land, only now filled with thick black schlop, gagging and choking the fish that had once called it their home. Smog filled the air, once so clean and fresh. Tree stumps were embedded in the ground, trunks lying beside them, stripped bare of their soft tufts. A factory was set against the dark backdrop, golden lights in the windows providing the only light in the dark, desolate land.Sixth Station in Short Stories More Like This
