NOES: Innocent Demon, Chapter VIII
NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET: INNOCENT DEMON
Chapter VIII:  "The Devil's Price"
REVISED EDITION
Written by Diane N. Tran
Forty-five years ago.
During the whole of a dull, dark, and soundless night of the coldest winter, on the Vigil of the Nativity, on the eve of Christmas, when the clouds hung oppressively low and heavy in the Heavens, the ethereal shadow of St. Dymphna's Psychiatric Hospital stood isolated and alone on a stark, stern landscape under a pall of desolate white, spattered alongside a few rank sedges and trunks of decayed trees. Yet despite the insufferable gloom and the deathly stillness of the snow and ice outside, there was no stillness within its bleak walls and its black turrets, for the barred windows of East Wing Tower, which housed one hundred of the most violent and most dangerous wards, betrayed a rabble of activity.
Sister Mary Helena's eyes darted feverishly about at t

Die Hard: Mind Games
DIE HARD: MIND GAMES
Written by Liz Hartley and Diane N. Tran
God, her feet were killing her.
Balancing herself precariously on her heeled pumps, the new director of corporate affairs appointed at Nakatomi Plaza, Holly Gennaro, inhaled at length to gather herself. She may have been worried but far from cowed. She had to present herself with all the appearance of quiet confidence and gentle authority for the sake of the others. Her head was held high, her back straight, and her hand was pressed reassuringly upon the shoulder of an elderly gentleman. But for the life of her, she could not recall his name, only that he had been a guest of her employer, Mr. Takagi — now deceased, to the Christmas party, as she escorted him and three others towards the office bathrooms.
The group consisted of two men, two women, and her, and it was the largest numb

TGMD: Case of the Outwitted Detective, Chapter VI
THE GREAT MOUSE DETECTIVE: THE CASE OF THE OUTWITTED DETECTIVE
Chapter VI:  "Passed Pawn"
REVISED EDITION
Dramatised by Diane N. Tran
"Do not turn around, gentlemen!  I have a revolver pointed at you both!"
And there I stood, with my hands hovered above my head, unable to draw a breath, at a complete loss as to what to do, and I was forced to stare at the arrow-pierced portrait of St. Sebastian upon the gaudy wall.
However, it was Basil who spoke first:  "I know that voice.  It's Deason, the valet."
"Very good, Mr. Basil.  Deduce that all on your own?"
"Well, Deason," said I, a little huffed, "you need not brandish your weapon at us.  Your master has not been harmed."
"I'm not in the least interested in that bloody codger, Doctor!  If the old man was dead, I would be utterly delighted!"

GOTG: Hello, Is It Me You're Looking For?
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: HELLO, IS IT ME YOU'RE LOOKING FOR?
Written by Diane N. Tran
Peter Jason Quill, better known as the Legendary Star-Lord, if mostly to himself, laced and looped his velvet bow-tie in the glassy reflection of the window with one hand, as he tapped a few key buttons to check the autopilot was functioning properly, careful not to wake the AI, with the other. His small but speedy little M-ship, Bad Boy — he didn't name it, but he might as well have called it that anyway — was to rendezvous with the homeship of the Guardians of the Galaxy, but it would be several hours until then.
Right now, it's all about him and his girlfriend.
The word sounded strange and foreign upon his tongue: Girrrrllllfffrieendd!
He's never had one. A serious one, specifically. Sure, he's had the meaningless one-night stands in every port and dive, hundreds of times, from here to Knowhere, for year

Characters from ''Robin Hood''
MERRY MEN OF SHERWOOD:
ROBERT "ROBIN" OF LOCKSLEY (ROBIN HOOD or ROBIN "OF THE HOOD" or ROBIN "THE HOODED"), YEOMAN OF LOCKSLEY
  — FOX:Saxon yeoman (freeman). Cousin to William of Crigglestone (Will Scarlett) and Sibyl of Crigglestone (Prioress of Kirklees). Primarily raised by his single mother (Cwenburgh of Locksley) and her laundress (Ymma), he joined his cousin, William of Crigglestone, in the Third Crusade as a youth, participated in the Siege of Acre, was imprisoned in Jerusalem (for insubordination), and escaped with Azeem the Moor. On returning to England, he found his family estate stolen by Guy of Gisbourne and, due to his crimes against the Crown, he considered an outlaw and thus all title and estate were forfeited. Taking the name "Robin Hood," he is best known as the outlaw leader of the Merry Men of Sherwood. Years later, he learned the true identity of his father, Robert of Huntingdon, Earl of Huntingdon and companion-in-arms to Prince David

THE GREAT MOUSE DETECTIVE: THE CASE OF THE OUTWITTED DETECTIVE
Chapter V:  "Absolute Pin"
REVISED EDITION
Dramatised by Diane N. Tran
My friend, a master of disguises, did not merely change his costume, but his manner, his expression, his very soul, seemed to vary with every fresh part that he assumed.  The stage lost a fine actor, as science lost an acute reasoner, when Basil of Baker Street became a specialist in crime.
It was the following morning when the detective badgered me away from my breakfast to attire in an ill-fitted costume, then affixed me at his vanity, irritably humming an aria, as he slapped on cold cream and powder upon my face.
"Voilà!" cried he, triumphantly, before dropping a flat-brimmed hat atop and jostling me out of the seat, then he began to paint himself up with grease and gum.
Gazing upon my reflection within the glass with astonishment, he had sculpted my

Basil and I glanced at one another, equally shocked at the words of this audacious woman. The idea that she would associate Basil in the category of a common thief left me greatly offended.
"Surely, Miss Relda," I ventured, with a muss of my moustache, "how could you contemplate that we would commit burglary for just anyone?"
"No, not commit, merely perform," she intervened mirthfully. "Besides, it is no more than retrieving one's property, Doctor."
"Nonetheless, a crime and a felony."
"A felony you gentlemen do rather well, I hear. Innocent until proven guilty, in accordance to the law? In a closed society, everyone is guilty of something; the only true crime is to get caught. In a world of thieves, the only sin is stupidity. Be
