One For All... Part 4Elsewhere in the palace, a small, silent figure was creeping along a corridor, a sword held firmly in his hand. It did not take Philippe long to locate the room to which he had been brought by Captain Widemere the previous night. Silently, he opened the door and slipped into the kings study; he could see his twin brother writing some kind of letter by the light of a candle. After closing the door softly behind him, Philippe crept over to the desk and then jumped up with his sword stretched out before him, eliciting a cry of shock from King Louis the Fourteenth.
Philippe! King Louis exclaimed in alarm. You fool you will regret coming back here, I promise you!
I shall regret nothing, Your Majesty, Philippe grinned widely, holding the point of his sword to his brothers throat. Now, if you please, remove that ridiculous wig and that itchy-looking ruff I wish to speak with my brother, not a child
One For All... Part 3Philippe spluttered and choked as he dropped into the murky, filthy sewer with a colossal splash. As he fought to keep his head above the water, Blancbec landed beside him.
Come on, we have to get out of here! Blancbec exclaimed urgently, when he had managed to steady himself in the water. The alarm has been raised!
What about your friend? asked Philippe. Shouldnt we wait for him?
Its too late for him, Blancbec spluttered, as he spat the filthy water out of his mouth. We can still escape though, Philippe you and I, we can still get into the palace. Come on!
Blancbec began to swim through the dark, filthy water, following the direction of the current. Philippe struck out after him, and soon overtook him. Shortly, they reached a large sluice gate that led out into the River Seine. The water around it churned and swirled overwhelmingly; the gate was rising and fal
One For All... Part 2 Enter!
The high, haughty voice filtered through from the other side of the door. Dogtanian marched into the kings study, and Mona followed him, although she was now undetectable to the naked eye. She had her notepad and pencil poised; they were also invisible. Inside the grand study, King Louis the Fourteenth was sitting at a jewelled writing desk, carefully making some sort of list on a piece of headed writing paper. Mona noticed that King Louis was a grey beagle with a large black nose, just like Dogtanian and Philippe. Much of his head and neck were obscured, however, by a large wig and a ridiculously oversized ruff. At the kings shoulder stood Anne of Austria, the Queen Mother, and Mona had no trouble working out her identity after a few moments thought. Queen Anne was a collie, Mona reckoned, although, again, she could not be entirely certain.
Your Majesty, said Dogtanian purposefully. I hope you will forgive

Early one morning in August, Fang was watching Mona get ready to go out. She put on her usual clothes and brushed her hair, before slipping her Eternity Bracelet onto her wrist. Pausing for thought, she then delved into a drawer and removed her Dracula amulet, which she placed around her neck. This action necessitated a second use of the hairbrush.
I might need this, Mona remarked, patting the amulet with her spare hand. You never know what horrific creatures might be lurking out there in the bright warm sunshine.
I thought you were going to the cinema, Fang frowned in puzzlement.
I am, Mona shrugged, but you never know how many ghosts and monsters might be lying in wait for me once I get there.
I knew this would happen, Fang purred knowingly. Theres been a complete dearth of supernat

By Jake Collins
Beast Boy and Raven emerged from the Dream Caverns onto a very rocky terrain. They were at the bottom of a very tall mountain, which towered over a large city in the valley below. Just beyond the city, the shimmering silver waters of a coastline were just visible.
Uh-huh, Beast Boy remarked. Interesting.
Okay, where have you brought us? Raven asked with a small smile.
Well it looks to me like weve come out in the foothills of Table Mountain, near the South African city of Cape Town, Beast Boy replied. Interestingly enough, South Africa actually has three capital cities, and Cape Town is one of them.
That is interesting, Raven agreed. But why have you brought us here?
Well, to tell you the truth, I didnt actually know we were going to e

Raven awoke under the colossal shadow of the Statue of Liberty, and groaned softly to herself. She blinked up into the sky; judging by the position of the sun, she estimated the time to be about eleven oclock in the morning. Upon squinting out to sea, Raven could see ferries approaching Liberty Island from both New York and Jersey City. She judged that it was time to make a move. She gently nudged Beast Boys sleeping form. This had no effect, so she prodded him in the ribs.
Just five more minutes, Beast Boy mumbled sleepily. Im so tired
Hardly surprising, seeing as you swam across the Atlantic Ocean last night, Raven whispered into his ear. But I really think we should get moving therere ferries on the way, and I really would like to get out of here before were forced to hear anything about what ha
