A Beating Heart - Chapter 5
"One of these days letters are gonna fall from the sky
telling us all to go free
But until that day I'll find a way to let everybody know that you're coming back
you're coming back for me "
When the door snapped shut, the small group stood in the hallway in dumbfounded silence. They all found themselves wondering the same things. Had that really just happened? Was that really Alice? Why was the little girl calling her 'mummy'? Tarrant found that the last question had a greater affect on him, and he wondered with detached curiosity why the thought of Alice loving someone upset him so.
After a few moments of simply standing there, the trio snapped out of their stupor just in time to see the other two men attempting to sneak away. "Captain, I would like a word with you," Mirana said calmly, yet with a firmness that Hamish hadn't heard before.
The small man turned around slowly, his expression a mask of indifference. "Yes, your M

"Somebody help me through this nightmare
I can't control myself
Somebody wake me from this nightmare
I can't escape this hell"
"You go to great lengths to keep these things a secret May I ask why?" Hamish asked shyly. Lately he had been getting that way around the White Queen. The pair had just departed from the festivities, though the party was still in full swing. Currently, they taking a detour though the gardens on their way back towards the castle.
Mirana sighed. "There are people here in Underland who are not as understanding as you and I. They would embrace and take full advantage of the idea of free labor. That is something that I cannot allow my beloved land to fall into." The redhead nodded, and she sighed once more. "I really do despise going to these 'special sales', as one captain once referred to it as. It always causes me so much stress to see all the people in such horrible condition. I know I can help them, but it's whe
Life as a Phantom - Chapter 1
Danny Fenton's alarm clock went off, jolting him out of his fitful slumber. Extending an arm from beneath the covers of his warm bed, he brought his fist down hard on the little contraption. As the beeping ceased, he sighed into his pillow. His night had been plagued by another nightmare, only one unlike the others that he had been having; he could identify the people in this one. Well, not people to be exact. Ghosts. Danny was no normal teenage boy. Due to an accident that had occurred in his parents' ghost-hunting lab, he was, quite literally, half dead. Half ghost, that is.
He lay in bed and listened briefly to the silence of the house, wondering why it was so quiet at this hour. Usually, his sister, Jazz, was up and taking a shower, and his parents, Jack and Maddie Fenton, were working on some new anti-ghost weapon. He sighed again, dismissing thoughts that anything was wrong and proceeded to go over the dream in his mind, trying to figure out what it me
Life as a Phantom - Prologue
"What's this? You've concocted a plan?" There was a rustling of papers and hushed voices as the aforementioned plan was explained to the newcomer.
"Hmm This might actually work." He said, raising an eyebrow. This plan was absolutely brilliant, and he was skeptical whether the ghost floating before him had the brain to think up something like that.
"Of course it will! With your muscle, and my skill, we will be unstoppable!"
"What of the fourth party you mentioned?"
"He has already begun his assigned duties. When he gives the signal, we shall strike!" a third, decidedly female voice crooned.
"We will bring down the ghost-boy once and for all, and then there will be no one left to stop us!" Maniacal laughter erupted from the cave in which the two new associates were meeting, and every ghost in the Ghost Zone felt an involuntary shiver run down their ectoplasmic spine.
