WitD 05: Dear Lord ...

Whispers in the Dark
a Great Mouse Detective fanfiction
Chapter 05 | Dear Lord ...

illustrations.: prologue | 01 | 02 | 03 | 04 | 05 | 06 | 07 | 08 | 09 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 ...
the chapters: prologue | 01 | 02 | 03 | 04 | 05 | 06 | 07 | 08 | 09 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 ...
(to be continued)

summary: AU - None believed that the hate-filled words of a little girl could still live on after more then 200 years, but when strange events start occurring in London the city's only hope of survival lies with one mouse ... and a rat?

AHA! Here I is, again! Missed me, people? I know I've been missing you :aww:

Anyway, I've been away to celebrate Easter with the rest of our family so naturally ... no time for internet or anythng else then eating, laughing and chocolate! (and eggs, of course).

SO - here is illustration #5 for Whispers in the Dark (I was literally laughing out loud when I was writing that particular scene :lol: and even though the "atmosphere" is not the best for it, I'm trying to keep up a pattern ... and on a side note: I KNOW I messed up the proportions ... Angelina was NOT suppose to come out THAT small ... but I give up X( had fun working on the bg though) done in a about fifty to 75 minutes (hard to keep track of time considering the fact that I was constantly erasing and editing ... and there were also certain ... distractions ... XD )

Still, I now find myself at a point where I have no idea what to draw for chapter 6. Any ideas?

p.s. I am not sure whatever Thinker is faithfully protective or wearisomely possessive ;P

(lol yea mad hatter!) I think Thinker is both!
Well, Thinker looks like an awesome hat whatever anyone says. Who wouldn't like a hat that can smite your enemies with a painful sting? ... That would be awesome!

Anyways: MY GOD THAT THAT TAIL IS FLUFFY! it is as Fluffy as Chuck Norris is awesome, as Fluffy as Code Geass is the best anime ever, as Fluffy as the moon is not a moon but a space station and also as Fluffy as the power to destroy planets is nothing compared to the power of the Force!

Well, the thing is, it is FLuffy... Let's leave it at that... for now. And also: WHAT THE HELL IS THAT GROWING OUT OF OLIVIA'S FINGER?

what!? where? who? where? - oh ... well, just say it's a stray of Fluffy's hair XD

and I want a hat like that. I really would. Now really, I would! (who wouldn't?) I think even the hat would like one! And the hat's hat! And the hat's hat hat! :lol: AWESOME HATS FOR EVERYONE! (looks like the Mad Hatter will be busy XD)

Oh, dear, Miss Becquet is way over her head! :XD: Basil's face is absolutely priceless and very fitting. The bee, lmao, too funny where she's perched along with her expression.

Olivia's nose is a little too long for her usual look, but she looks fabulous everywhere else! But hey, you could say as she's getting older, she's starting to have an identical appearance like the detective, and since she herself loves to investigate crimes, it would be like a compliment! ;)

Here's an idea for chapter six: The detective, always a practical mouse, moved back to the cage's lock, trying to get it open before the matchstick burned down completely. But just as her paw touched the lock, Dawson's larger, colder one stopped her from attempting to open it.

Draw that. You've got the match burning here which means there is little light to illuminate the scene. Draw Dawson in the bird cage grabbing and talking to Basil about getting out of there alive. Make it look real emotional on the two, eyes piercing with a glaze on both, Dawson's more in desperation while Basil looking perplexed yet still having a gleam of tears to see her friend in the cage.

Hehehe ... Thinker is very protective oh her new owner ... or very possessive ._.

And yes, Olivia is growing up ^^ And you're so right in saying that she likes to investigate SPOILER! as I'll be sure to point out later on in the story </b>end ...</b> (am I seeing another Basil-in-the-making? >:3)

Hmm ... you know what? I like that Idea ^^ I was actually trying to decide wherever to try and do that or Ratigan ... but then again, I'll have countless other opportunities to draw our favorite ra- ... very large mouse in the future ^^ - a distraught Dawson ... can't really miss that, now can we >:3

Thank you!

I agree very much so while Basil sort of tolerates her. She's angry at her brother for sending her, however...I'm starting to wonder if Thinker will be an important character at this point? ;)

Poor Mr. Flaversham! I've often been writing that way how Olivia won't be following in her father's footsteps as a toymaker, but rather a detective! I also hint around a mystery writer after her adventures with Basil. A detective is most definitely in the makings for her. :D

I was thinking that as well if you wanted to do a scene of Basil confronting Ratigan. He's a chore to draw, but once on paper, a delight to go through all the trouble. Such a wickedly awesome character, I'm glad to hear we will be seeing more of the ra- er, mouse! ;)

You're welcome!

Gah! Basil's all, "GET AWAAAAAAAAAAY!!!"
niiice one, and I just noticed the uberly fluffy tail! CUTE (in a fluffy way...) I = like! :giggle:
sycamoreleaf's avatar
Yes indeed :D
(well, I ask, how would you react given the circumstances? And yes, I know I am evil >:3 )
Noelle-M's avatar
SOmewhat the same way.
It's funny, because the title matches exactly what Basil is thinking! (what does that one reviewer mean by thinker????? very random, I know, I do that) 0_o
sycamoreleaf's avatar
Oh, Thinker is the bee's name ^^ (I mentioned that as a little spoiler in the last picture ;P )
Noelle-M's avatar
He is soo adorable! Keep drawing!
I see a unflappety organism/bee hybrid on top of Basil's h - Oh, it's Thinker! I don't know how I could have mixed those two up... The hybrid is what haunts me at night, Thinker is a fictional bee... weird...

Well, anyways: I see awesomeness all around Basil. One being Olivia and the other is the fluffiest of fluffy tails. Is Olivia's bow about to fall off? That would drop her awesomeness level by AT LEAST 14%, so that can't happen.

What's up with Basil's mouth? Oh, wait... I know! She's turning into a EKG machine. I see that the fluffy person's heart is doing just fine and that is a relief. Either that or she's flat-lining. How should I know? I'm not a doctor, damn it!

... I'm a space station. Damn would it be awesome... to be an EKG machine, that is. Being a space station is not that great actually. You're bound to be blown up by an obnoxious whiny kid with a sister complex and daddy issues, but that's not relevant right now.

Anyway, I think it's awesome all around for this one.

and you're awesome all over again for coming up with such awesome comments :D also, Olivia's bow is not coming of - it's somehow braking all laws of physics and remains on her head no matter what will happen.

... you're a space station?
OF COURSE, don't you know anything about science!?
