COSPLAY FRIDAY: A Heart’s A Heavy Burden
Howl’s Moving Castle 1
Howl’s Moving Castle is best known as the 2004 animated fantasy film written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki.
While it is as beautifully animated as all of Studio Ghibli's other films this was one of the few times Miyazaki based a film on an existing work. The film is an adaptation of British author Diana Wynne Jones’ 1986 young-adult novel by the same name and the first book in th
The Sitter is Not Mocked- Chapter 3: The Big SwingWhen Javert had called Valjean about watching these kids, the superintendent had been borderline thrilled at the idea. Ecstatic even. So as the three of them stood outside Jean's apartment, waiting for him to answer Javert's impatient rapping on the door, he had fully expected to be relieved of duty when the more experienced child wrangler took charge. Javert would find out very quickly that Phillipa and James had something else in mind.More Like This
“Well, well, what do we have here?” Valjean said as he opened the door, peering at the odd little party gathered at the entrance. “I hope Javert's been nice to you two.”
James scrunched up his face and answered, “I guess.” to Javert's horror. Surely the boy was not going to lie and tell Jean that he had been mistreated?
“Oh, really?” Valjean raised a questioning but trusting eyebrow at the inspector, who replied with a shrug.
James pointed accusingly up at Javert. “He won't say what 'embrassed' mean
The Sitter is Not Mocked- Chapter Two: The PitchThe inspector was hunched over a notebook on the sofa, writing out a shopping list and a game plan while Phillipa and James sat on the floor. Their eyes had been glued to the television for the last half hour, watching some kind of all kid's shows channel; Javert had simply flipped on the first cutesy looking thing he could find. He had placated James with a stuffed elephant toy from the bag when he had set him on the floor, and Phillipa seemed content enough with whatever show she was watching. Sarah had said that they didn't need to have any fun, but Javert figured that happy children were much easier to deal with than bored ones. Thus, the shopping list and the game plan.

Things were going well when Norrington wandered into the main room. Phillipa sat up slightly at the sight of him, though how she recognized the man under the blanket-turned-cloak Javert didn't know. She waved at him enthusiastically and greeted him, “Hi U

“Sarah...there must be someone else.”
“There isn't. I've checked. Normally I watch them both when Mr. Cobb has work, but between Jareth and this whole thing with Toby...”
“Besides, remember when Toby got lost in the woods? You were the one who found him. You're good at keeping track of people.”
“Yes, but I can guarantee that they will not enjoy themselves. Maybe with Valjean's help...”
“Sounds like a good idea. Either way, they don't need to have fun, they just need to be safe. And honestly, you're the most responsible person available.”
Inspector Javert was becoming very painfully aware of this fact as he attempted to explain the situation to his roommates. Well, roommate. James was staring into the middle distance and saying nothing as Javert spoke and Eric onl
