Rattus Norvegicus: ConstellationsGemini took Basil's hand and shook it slightly, then stepped back. "What do you make of my case, Detective?"
Basil frowned. It wasn't often that client's asked for his opinion... usually because he just told them straight anyway.
"Clearly, she important to you. My only concern is why she would disappear and only contact you once." He scanned the note again. Then shook his head. "And unfortunately she sent you this a long while ago. Why it took so long to arrive is questionable." Gemini's ears drooped and sadness clouded her eyes.
"How long?" The Detective hesitated. He didn't usually think twice about how he would make someone feel, not until after he had hurt them, anyway, but there was something about this girl...
"I believe that she sent this at least a month ago, Miss Poppy."
"Yes, yes. But..." He sighed. "I wouldn't fret too much." He paused, then smiled as kindly as he could. "We'll find her."
She smiled, then lifted her chin. There was that determination again.
Rattus Norvegicus: Second First ImpressionRuthie looked away from him and blushed again. God, he was having such a weird effect on her. She bit her lip.
She just wanted to be accepted, really.
Ratigan raised an eyebrow when she turned away from him. There was something very strange about this girl.
Strange, but endearing.
She looked back and hastily composed herself.
"So, ah... you're a Doctor?" He hadn't counted on being asked this.
"Yes..." He answered uncertainly.
"What kind of Doctor?"
"Er... A Doctor of... Psychology, my dear." This wasn't strictly untrue.
He knew a lunatic when he saw one.
"Ah." Was her short response.
Yes. She was an odd one.
There was a long pause.
"I wasn't always this poor." She said quietly. He was surprised she had said this.
"No. I... I'm not from around here."
"Surrey." He said bluntly. She blinked.
"How did you know?"
"It wasn't difficult. You have a slight accent, Miss Rutherford." He smiled, his teeth bared. She had to admit that in the pit of her stomach she felt a little wa
Rattus Norvegicus: The ClientBasil sat in his chair as the fire crackled. He was hunched over, his knees pulled up to his chest, one hand dangling over the chair arm, brushing the top of his violin lightly. Sleep had a way of eluding the Detective, but tonight he'd finally caught up with it and was embraced in a peaceful slumber. Basil wasn't much of a dreamer. He would never admit it, but dreams were the one thing that gave him some form of reality. Sometimes his waking life was like a dream. And so his night-dreams were reality to him. He would never admit it, but when he occasionally had a dream, he loved it. It was usually a picture of another life altogether.
Plus it was something to analyse.
Tonight he wasn't dreaming. Tonight was simply a night of sleep. Of the warmth of fire caressing his body. He was content in that chair. That chair had become his friend throughout the years of cases. It had seen him laugh, cry, curse, experiment, concoct, scheme, make music, his dramas, his highs, his lows, his needs, h
Rattus Norvegicus: So... you.Ratigan stood and glanced down at himself. He had never worn anything nearly as horrifying as this, even as a child raised in the sewers. He shuddered again. God, he hated his background. He was even more disgusted at the sight of his own feet. Even in his wealthiest of years, catching sight of his feet would make him feel sick. He had resorted to always wearing socks, even in bed or having a bath. There generally was notjing wrong with his feet, at least not to others, but they were a reminder to him of what he really was. A rat. There was nothing he could do about them except to cover them up. The same went for his hands. The two pairs from his body he despised the most, all because they were completely unchangeable. His tail didn't bother him so much. He hardly ever saw it, so that was good enough. But now every inch of him had been exposed. He knew what he was. He was a dirty, common, vulgar sewer ra- "No!" He spat aloud. He trembled with rage, contempt for his own being building.
Rattus Norvegicus: Celebration"Dawson, old boy, we did it again!" Basil clinked glasses with Dawson and laughed. It was a week after the Napoleon of Crime's fall from Big Ben, and in that week that followed, Basil had quickly solved the case of the Missing Emerald Ring. Needless to say, he was in good spirits. Dawson smiled across at him. The Detective's moods changed so dramatically at times, but Dawson had learnt to live with it. Tonight was celebration night, as Basil had decided. "To rejoice over solved cases, my new partner-" (Dawson's smile got a little wider.) "-And of course-" Basil marched over to the fireplace and grinned up at the portrait of James Vincent Ratigan. "-To raise a glass to you, old boy." He laughed again and drank, still glaring at the photo.
"I say, Basil, why don't you take that down now? Surely you don't need it anymore?" Dawson chimed, walking to Basil's side and frowning at the portrait himself.
"Dawson, for years that picture served as a reminder that I had not yet come close to reach
Rattus Norvegicus: Miss Rutherford and Dr JayverHe stirred and awoke, his head throbbing. Glancing around, he realised he was in what appeared to be a cardboard box, partitioned by a curtain of rags stitched together in order to create two 'rooms', and he was lying inside a matchbox which served as a makeshift bed, covered by a small rag. He tried to sit up but winced when pain shot through his torso. "Oh! Don't get up!" He lifted his eyes wearily and saw a young rat staring at him, her brow knitted with worry. She was fairly petite for a rat, his only clue to her species being her large tail, almost identical to his own. Otherwise she could easily have been mistaken for a mouse. He envied her that. She was a deep red colour, marked only by a creamy brown on her face, chest and ears. How she had managed to get him from the Thames to here was beyond his knowledge. He smiled weakly then opened his mouth to speak, but only managed a croak before a coughing fit hit him. He flopped back on the bed and groaned. She left and then reappeare
Karkat x Reader: Through the ForestYour name is (__) and your last name is (__) and you're currently wondering through the forests of Alternia. It's a beautiful planet, really. You've always loved strolling through the woods because it pleases you.... a lot. It's a cool day and the weather is perfect. You're walking to your favorite place in the forest, a nice little secluded area near a small lake. Private only to you, and your moirial, Karkat Vantas. You've known the troll for a few years now. You guys like to meet there often.
As you're walking through the forest, taking in all the details of the world around you, you finally arrive to your special little place. Only to find Karkat already there. He's crossing his arms glaring at you.
"HEY FUCKASS, NEVER THOUGHT YOU'D FUCKING COME! I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR FUCKING 20 MINUTES!" yells Karkat, annoyed.
"Sorry Karkat, I was taking my time." You say, walking over to him.
"WELL GET HERE FASTER NEXT TIME, (__)" says Karkat.
You sigh and sit down at the lake's edge, while Karka
A Hope | Eren x Reader | One ShotI ran my hands over the soft ground. As the sun and wind grazed over my face, I wondered how in this world we live in, there can be such struggle and pain and fear breathing the same air as this peaceful scene. I closed my eyes and lie there on the ground. "(First)?" I propped myself up on my elbow, coaxing my eyes open as I turned to face the voice. "Yes?" I asked, looking up at crouching , dark-haired figure. Eren. He sat down on the ground next to me, crossing his legs. "Are you okay?" I nodded, pushing back the memory of the previous day. I had just returned from a mission outside the walls, several of my squad did not return, I was the only one left unscathed. We sat for a moment in bitterly peaceful silence, I held back tears. "If you need to talk." He said after a moment and hesitantly laying a gentle hand on my shoulder. I looked down at the grass as I realized that the peace I had felt was in v

Pray for BurundiBurundi is a landlocked country in central Africa.
It is bordered by Rwanda in the north, Tanzania in the east and south
and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) in the west
Bujumbura is the capital and largest city
The population is over 8 million.
Although the country is landlocked, much of the southwestern border
is adjacent to Lake Tanganyika.
Burundi has long been thought of the Rwanda’s ‘Twin’.
2,000 South Asians
5% Folk/ Animist
The earliest inhabitants of Burundi were the Twa (Pygmy).
The Hutu later came and became the largest group.
By the 15th century the Tutsi migrated from Ethiopia and established a kingdom.
The Burundi Dynasty lasted until 1966.
The kingdom was at its height from 1796-1850
European explorers and missionaries made visits to the area beginning in 1856.
From 1899-1916 Burundi wa
Rant: Defending RosalinaEver since her appearance in Super Mario 3D World, Rosalina has been getting alot of crap from tons of Mario fans. I'm hear to shed some light on this matter once and for all.
Argument: She's replacing Daisy and/or Waluigi and taking there spots in mainstream titles away from them. It's unfair!
And how exactly is she doing that? The last time I checked, Waluigi and Daisy were both still appearing in games. I think you guys are just upset that Rosalina is making mainstream appearances and Daisy and Waluigi aren't. People fail to realize that Daisy and Waluigi were never mainstream to begin with (well, Daisy did appear in Super Mario Land, but that was about what? 2 decades ago?). Now don't get me wrong, I truly do like Daisy and I have absolutely nothing against her, but Daisy was pretty much only brought back to the Mario series to give Peach a partner in Mario spin-offs (and probably to give Luigi a love interest), just like Waluigi was only created to give Wario a partner in Mario sp
Izaya x Reader (Chapter 7) [lemon]Chapter 7,
You started to make dinner, some rice and octopus sausage with some black tea. You heard the door open and it made you jump slightly. You looked and a very tired angry Shizuo stood at the door.
“Sh-Shizuo? Are you okay?” you ask him worried.
He nods his head yes and sits down next to you and eats some of the rice. You sigh and continue eating your rice.
“I couldn’t catch him,” Shizuo finally said. Your face turns red and you look at Shizuo.
“It’s okay, maybe you can kill him another day?” You laugh nervously. Shizuo looks at you weirdly and continues eating his rice.
Later that night as your laying in bed you hear a tap on your window. You roll over and look at the alarm clock. “It’s 2 AM!” You look out the window and see Izaya hanging on the edge. You open the window, “Izaya? Are you crazy? Get in now!” You pull him up into the apartment and he topples over you.
“You’re so lucky Shizuo
New School, New World- Italy's EndingItaly’s Ending- Pastaaaaa~
You turned the TV off with a sigh. Nothing good was on and you didn’t want to do any homework yet. As you sat there wondering about what to do, you absent-mindedly picked up your cell phone and scrolled through your contacts. The first number after your father’s read Feliciano Vargas. You’d forgotten that Ludwig had given you his number a day ago. You smiled and decided to give the guy a call. You hardly had to wait before the cheerful Italian picked up the phone.
“Hey, Feli. It’s (f/n)”
“Oh hi (f/n)! I was just missing you! I’m so bored sitting at home and I wanna see you and Ludwig and Kiku again!”
You laughed as you listened to him whine. “At least you have Lovino with you though”.
“Actually Lovi isn’t here”, Feliciano responded sadly, “He had to go to work”.
“Really? Then who
Izaya X Reader (Chapter 1)Chapter 1,
You were walking from the store, down the street to your apartment that you shared with the strongest man in Ikebukuro, Shizuo Heiwajima. Who also happens to be your big brother.
“Izaya! You bastard!” you stop and turn around and duct when you see a vending machine flying.
“Damn it Shizuo…” you groan and walk towards him and then get knocked over by someone.
“Ow, what was that for?!” you yell.
You look and see it’s Izaya, and you roll your eyes. Izaya winks at you and keeps running. You hiss at him and pick up the bags and place the milk back into the bag and the crushed pudding.
“Shizuo’s going to be mad when he realizes Izaya was the one who bumped into me…” you say to yourself.
“_____, are you okay?!” Shizuo comes running up and notices the pudding, “why’d you spill the pudding _____...” he asks.
You sigh, “Izaya knocked me over and it all fell to the ground.
