Chase the WindChase the Wind by AlcyoneSong
“I will ride, I will fly,
chase the wind and touch the sky.”
Bristol, England, 1890
It was a balmy night in the port town of Bristol. A floating forest of tall ships dipped and bobbed in the harbor, their sails trimmed and secured for the night, as seabirds circled overhead calling out to each other. The rigging clanked, the cables groaned against their moors in tune with ships bells. The lanterns on the bow and stern flickered as the tall ships dipped and rocked with the waves lapping against the seawall. The air was heavy with the scent of salt and fish mixed with the more exotic aromas of cargo from all over the Empire. Around and under the warehouses and buildings an entire world existed. Rats, mice, and other creatures went about their business hidden from the eyes of their human counterparts. They exchanged stories, engaged in betting sports, and made deals in taverns of their own design.
The Great Mouse Reporter ~ Chapter 13Fievel, Olivia and Vartan traveled deeper into the bowels of the underground tunnels, feeling the walls and trying not to trip over anything. The three of them had to battle claustrophobia, each of them trying hard not to panic in the pitch darkness, where they could not see their own hands in front of their faces. Olivia stumbled over her own feet a few times and had to be steadied by Fievel, who was taking up the rear. As they traveled downhill, the tunnel eventually leveled off, and as they felt for the walls Vartan, being the tallest, felt a cold steel pipe above them.The Great Mouse Reporter ~ Chapter 13 by Surenity
"It leads through the tunnel," said Vartan, "Should ve follow it?"
"I guess it's our best hint at where to go," said Fievel.
"I really wish we had a lamp," Olivia said, holding tightly to Fievel's hand.
""W-we'll make it, Olivia," Fievel said, "We've still got our other senses to rely on, even if we can't see."
"The pipe turns here," said Vartan, and he led them to the right.
They followed the pipe straight for a lon

As Basil brought back the rum for Ray, he saw Amber standing outside Ray’s door peeking inside at him worriedly.
Amber squeaked in surprise at Basil’s voice behind her. "Y-Yeah. How’s Ray doing? Is he ok?"
"Why don’t you ask him yourself?" Basil chuckled. However the smile faded as Amber looked down at the ground ashamedly.
"I-I don’t want to disturb him," she muttered, fidgeting with the hem of her skirt. "I… I gotta go, wash dishes or something…"
"Hey, wait!" Basil called, causing Amber to turn back around. He stammered embarrassedly as Amber looked up at him. "Um, it’s just…You’ve been awful quiet since we left the island. Are you sure you’re alright?"
"I’m fine, really," Amber replied, keeping her eyes on the floor. "I just wish there were something I could do to help…"
"Would you want to get some food for him?" Basil offered. "He almost starved himself to death so somethin

“It’s going to get a little steep and quite dark down this way, my dear,” Ratigan said as he led her to a dark passageway to which he had opened a door to behind his throne. “So I would stick close to me if I were you.”
“All right,” she said, taking hold of Ratigan’s arm and tightening the straps of her violin case to her back. She was about to step inside when Ratigan suddenly stopped her.
“Oh, I almost forgot,” Ratigan laughed, pressing his fingertips to his head in amusement. “Fidget!” he called. In a moment, a small crippled bat with a wooden peg leg appeared, his bright, devious yellow eyes looking up at the two rats. Cimarron inwardly cringed at the rogue bat, but nevertheless she still smiled politely as ever, though she did take a few small steps back. She couldn’t help it; there was something about that bat that put her on a bit of an edge.
“Yes, Boss?” he asked
The Great Mouse Reporter ~ Chapter 12"Onward, Toby," Basil said, as the four mice rode on the dog's back down a street to Liverpool.The Great Mouse Reporter ~ Chapter 12 by Surenity
It was a journey that had taken several hours, but finally they reached the outer city limits at night. They only needed to find the docks. Basil rode in front with Nellie hanging onto him. Dawson and Cholena rode toward the middle. Cholena had felt scared around the dog at first, but he proved to be quite tame upon being given a cheese crumpet.
"I almost wish to stay in England longer with you,' said Cholena, knowing that the plan was to board a ship to New York after they investigated the ship manifests to see if Madame Mousey's owner had been aboard any of them.
"You deserve to see the world," Nellie agreed, "Maybe your father will be more lenient after this."
"I hope," Cholena looked down, "I am afraid to face him again. Leaving the tribe without permission is the worst offense one can commit."
"All fathers care for their children," said Dawson, "He'll be glad to have you back, one way o

THE GREAT MOUSE DETECTIVE: WHY SHERRINGFORD?
Written by Diane N. Tran
"Basil of Baker Street, my good fellow!" (TGMD).
Many Basilians, including myself, have wondered if Basil of Baker Street had a first name, as neither the Eve Titus nor Disney has ever revealed one. Those whom have read my character profiles and/or my pastiches may have noticed that I often refer to the character, Basil of Baker Street, as Sherringford Basil. This name was my own creation and, of all the names in all the languages, I have often been asked, "Why Sherringford?"
Origin and History:
In March 1886, (Sir) Arthur Conan Doyle, a young Scottish doctor and struggling author, began writing a novel, which would catapult him to fame, but he had difficulty deciding on the names of the heroes: His detective was to be "Sherringford Holmes" and his assistant to be "Ormond Sacker." However, Conan Doyle found t
