Beauty and the Beast Chapter 11Morning shined along the castle, already Frederick was up-and-about greeting the dawn of a new day. With Gutknecht at the lead, Frederick had since been exploring the castle for quite some time. There was so much more of the castle for Frederick to see and yet so little time to do so. For what it was worth, it just intrigued the young man more and more.
"I've only been here a few days, yet I still haven't seen all of the castle yet," Frederick replied.
"This castle is very big, sir," Gutknecht said. "I'm surprised that you haven't gotten lost yet."
"Me too," Frederick agreed, with a chuckle.
Just then, it was at this point when they walked past two large doors that were just under two flights of the stairs, of which led up into his and Maria's hallways. Frederick had briefly seen the doors during his time at the castle, but not long enough to take the time to notice until this very day. Now that he had, Frederick was curious.
"Gutknecht, what's in there?"
Gutknecht turned around to fac
Beauty and the Beast Chapter 10"You can't be serious, Miss Doe!" Cogsworth exclaimed, pacing back-and-forth. "Are you even aware of the amount of work you're talking about in order to get things ready for a ball, even a two-person ball, in the limited time that we have?"
Miss Doe figured this would be the response she'd received. It wasn't long ago when all the servants had gathered in the kitchen, and she had just finished explaining the outline of her plan not only to Cogsworth, but also to Manx, Lumiere, Babette, Gutnecht, and even the stove-chef. Clearly, they all shared some expression of concern for putting such a complicated ball all together. But still, Miss Doe would not let this slip so easily.
"I'm well aware of the work involved, believe me," Miss Doe replied. "And, Cogsworth, I have complete faith in your ability to get things suitably organized."
"I… Ah, well… When you put it that way…" Cogsworth stuttered, momentarily thrown off his own protest.
"I think it is a wonder plan, mes amis," Lumiere said wi
Beauty and the Beast Chapter 9A few hours had passed and by that time Frederick and Maria had just finished reading the book. By now, they were just at the very end of the story and in all that time Maria was moved through the emotion carried out within these pages.
"When Guinevere heard that Arthur was slain," Frederick read. "She went away to a convent, and no one could make her smile again. The end."
"What a beautiful story," Maria said with a smile.
"I knew you would like it!" Frederick replied, returning a smile.
It was then that Frederick took notice of what was going on outside. He looked out toward the window, noticing the land covered in a blanket of snow as the snowflakes fell from the clouds toward the ground.
"Look, it's snowing," He then turned back to Maria. "Want to go outside with me?"
"I'd love to," Maria answered with a smile. "It's been such a long time since I've played in the snow."
"Great! Let's go."
Excited, Frederick grabbed Maria's paw and they walked out of the library together preparing t
Steampunk*d in Thamesburg Chapter 2
*It had been such a long walk, they practically passed the high glamour of the city practically towards the other side of the tracks. Unlike the portion of the city they went to, this section had so many torn down buildings, trash all over the streets, and a car or two with the engines burst into flames, it might as well be demolished. Without making a stop, being a robot and all, Bonanza practically led them to a seemingly old and abandoned apartment complex in an area where the grass was dry and brown, the trees were dead, and there was so much smog in the air the crew were lucky to have any breathing space at all. Still, Bonanza believed she was only leading Justin, who did his best to keep up with her quick pace. Before long, they were inside the building that didn't have a roof, a busted old television set, a torn lounge chair, and a majority of the room looked like a fire took place. This was apparently the best place for a talk because seemingly no one else on the planet would e
Steampunk*d in Thamesburg Chapter 1
*Stars, scattered about in multitude and yet so scarce can they be counted. For they are usually passed by from any nearby craft that doesn't take it's time to notice them. And among such crafts, one such ship looms through the darkness before it's revealed to be the Trimaxian, or as known by it's captain, Logan, this ship was usually referred to as "Max". Within that ship, Logan himself sits by his make-shift throne observing their course nearly distracted from what was going on around him. For at the back end of the ship, a Night Elf, Isaac the Media Hunter, shows off a scroll to his two shipmates: Popeye the Sailor Man and Justin the Rat, formerly a rat of NIMH*
Isaac: You know? You'd be surprise how difficult it is to receive a degree in hunting. Back in Azeroth, I spent three weeks studying to be a hunter… Online-hunting that is.
Logan: Everything's online, nowadays.
Justin: *looks at the scroll* Wait a minute… That's a license in "practiced" hunting.
Popeye: Hoo, you
Logan Meets The Hobbit Chapter 10
*The day eventually turned to dusk on this fateful day. Still invisible, Bilbo sat by the rock all through the day waiting for the battle to come to an end. A dwarf slowly approached where Bilbo stood and collapsed right before his eyes. Bilbo recognized the Dwarf immediately, Bombur, the only dwarf whoever showed sympathy for Bilbo. He slips off his ring and approaches the Dwarf, who was very close to death*
Bilbo: Bombur! You're hurt!
Bombur: *groans* I still live. And you?
Bilbo: A slight wound. Crack on the head. Out for hours. What happened?
Bombur: *shudders* We…won… *dies*
*Having stayed with Bombur till he gave his final breath, Bilbo walked onto the battle field and saw the damage that had been done. Everywhere he turned, there was one dead body after another. No one was spared from the battle: Human, elf, dwarf, goblin... All of them were on the ground. Some of the still lived but in great pain and a great many dead, never to see the light of day again.
Logan Meets The Hobbit Chapter 9
*Following the death of Smaug the Dragon, the Lonely Mountain cried with echoes of laughter and joy. Finally, with their home regained and their treasure in the grasp, the Dwarves now had a reason to celebrate now that the quest was finally over. The clanging of gold coins could be heard as the Dwarves sat atop the pile of golden coins*
Dori: Now I am king!
Thorin: Stop! There is only one King Under the Mountain, and I am he… Thorin!
Dwarves: Hail Thorin! Hip-hip-hooray!
*As the Dwarves cheered for their leader, Bilbo, Logan, and the rest of the crew sat by a corner whilst the Dwarves celebrated. While they were happy that the Dwarves got their home back and could now have their treasure, something still troubled the group. If they truly won their reward after a long, daunting quest… Why do they still feel uncertain? Was it truly over, or was it just the beginning?*
Logan: Well… We did it, I guess.
Isaac: Humph… Sure we did.
Logan: You don't think Just
Logan Meets The Hobbit Chapter 8
*Finally, after so many months of travel, after many hardships and encounters, Logan and his crew had followed the Dwarves as far as the opening to their homeland of The Lonely Mountain. Standing by a waterfall, they hang by the rocks overlooking the area. A foul stench fills the air, forcing the group to cover their nose. Course they knew only one thing could smell that horrible… Smaug was definitely close*
Bilbo: That smell! I've not smelled dragon before.
Isaac: Yup, there's no mistake about that stench. *nods* Brimstone… And mixture of rotten corpses of a thousand years. *breaths deeply, then starts coughing uncontrollably* Oh yeah! Smaug's in there all right. *holds his nose* Oh god, That stench! My eyes are burning!
Balin: All the halls within must be filled with his foul reek.
Logan: Well, there's no turning back now. It's now or never, let's just get this over with while we still have a chance.
*Without hesitation, the troupe slowly climbed up the mountain
