WitD 09: That hurt

Whispers in the Dark
a Great Mouse Detective fanfiction
Chapter 09 | That hurt!

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?

At long last, we have Ratigan present in a WitD illustration! My only regret is that I ruined him ... Hopefully he'll come out better next time (when I'm hopping I won't have him be so hostile).

Concerning the chapter now! - Personally ... I'm thinking it came out so-so. Thinking like Ratigan, and especially this Ratigan, is not easy. But given current circumstances I'm guessing that it could have come out worse.

Now, I'm having a bit presentation to do tomorrow, so I'll be wishing you all good night and enjoy! :aww:

:star::star::star::star::star-half: Overall
:star::star::star::star::star: Vision
:star::star::star::star::star-half: Originality
:star::star::star::star::star: Technique
:star::star::star::star::star: Impact

The world needs more individuals such as Basil, one who goes to great lengths to take care of even the most diabolical criminals. Here we see the detective tending to the wounds of her nemesis. It's amusing to see Basil attempting to keep a calm demeanor to an otherwise cranky patient.

Vision: It's a simple view of Ratigan's dark room with some objects (a bowl of hot water, blood-stained cloths and bandages etc.) depicting this is a scene to represent the characters of one trying to help the other. 5.0

Originality: This very much resembles when Belle attended to the Beast in Disney's Beauty and the Beast, so it's not totally original, but it's still highly worth viewing. 4.5

Technique: Soft brushes and shadow/illumination effects are used once more, adding this to the professional animated feature category. Tones are rich, colors vibrant and sharp, beautifully done as usual. 5.0

Impact: A lot of tension is felt here mainly from Ratigan screaming at poor Basil, but then there's a feeling of comfort on Basil's end for the strive to repair his wounds and to keep him from dying. I also feel a bit sympathetic to both when each are suffering in physical and emotional ways. 5.0

Ratigan: THAT HURT!

Basil: Well if you'd hold STILL, it wouldn't HURT as much!

Ratigan: Well if you hadn't run away, this wouldn't have happened!

Basil: Well if you hadn't frightened me, I wouldn't have run away!

Ratigan: Well YOU shouldn't have gone into the West Wing!

Basil: Well YOU should learn to control your temper!

I bet this is like on the script/scene of 'Beauty And the Beast'Beauty and the Beast Clip

Anyway, let me use both Basil and Ratigan as the characters.

Basil pours hot water out of the tea pot. He soaks a rag in the water, then turns to Ratigan, who is licking his wounds.

Basil: Here now. Oh, don't do that.
Ratigan growls at Basil as he tries to clean the wound with the rag.

Basil: Just...hold still. (He touches the rag to the wound and Ratigan screams in pain)
Batigan: That hurts!

Basil: (In counterpoint) If you'd hold still, it wouldn't hurt as much.
Ratigan: Well if you hadn't saved your life, this wouldn't have happened!
Basil: Well if you hadn't murdered me, I wouldn't have stopped you then!
Ratigan: (Opens his mouth to respond, but has to stop and think of a good line) Well you shouldn't have ruin my greatest scheme!
Basil: Well you should've been behind bars then!
