Basil's American Tail - Chapter 1Basil's American TailBasil's American Tail - Chapter 1 by Surenity
New York City, 1886
Puffing upon his wooden pipe, Basil of Baker Street, England's premier mouse detective, exited the gangplank of the ship docked at Castle Garden carrying a large suitcase, careful to dodge the feet of the much larger human immigrants and tourists from London. Basil wasn't here as an immigrant of course, he fancied jolly ol' England just fine. Nor was he here on vacation either; he had very little time for such extravagances when there were criminals lurking about. No, it was a case which had led him to take the long voyage across the Atlantic Ocean.
The case, as it were, involved several valuable items stolen from the British Museum by Ratigan and his thugs, including jewels, a collection of antique Italian mirrors from the Renaissance era, and an ancient Greek statue of the goddess Athena. Ratigan had managed to slip right through Basil's fingers once again, unfortunately, but he did capture one of Ratigan's underlings during a p
Basil's American Tail - Chapter 3When Basil and Nellie came back they both carried bags with them. After buying some food at the market Nellie had taken Basil to a British-themed pub downtown that served cheese crumpets as appetizers, and they'd bought a stockpile of them. There was an ice box in the tiny kitchen for them to keep their food in, and a stove with which to heat it up later. Basil had also purchased a nice tea pot.Basil's American Tail - Chapter 3 by Surenity
"Very well then, I think you've proven yourself a worthy partner." Basil said.
"The honor is all mine." replied Nellie as she removed her fake beard.
"So, as per our agreement, you help me wrap up this case and show me the ins and outs of New York, and I'll let you write your big scoop on the whole thing after it's all said and done." Basil said.
"Why thank you." Nellie said, "I must say I never thought I'd be working with Basil of Baker Street of all people, but you can count on me. We'll nab this cat."
By this time it was late afternoon, but night wouldn't be too far off.
"Right then, how are
Basil's American Tail - Chapter 2Officer Bob Rodentstein huffed and strained carrying Basil's large suitcase as they made their way up the stairs to Basil's temporary apartment, the mouse-sized steps hidden within the walls of the much larger human-sized building. To someone of their size a two-story building might as well have been a sky scraper. It took several flights of stairs to make it all the way up.Basil's American Tail - Chapter 2 by Surenity
"Please do hurry up, Bob. We haven't got all day and I want to begin my investigation immediately." Basil said, thinking the less time spent in this depressing city the better.
"Honestly, what did you put in this thing?" Rodentstein asked irritably as she trailed behind Basil.
"Oh just a few essentials, some lab equipment, a disguise, my violin "
The heavily bearded officer rolled his eyes as he dragged the suitcase up the steps. Finally they reached the top, and Basil used the key they'd been given in the lobby to open the door to his room. The room had two bedrooms and a living room, one bedroom for each of
Basil's American Tail - Chapter 5 The nightclub was full of rowdy, drunken cats, noisily talking, laughing, getting into fights. The bar consisted of some wooden crates stacked together, and the rest of the nightclub used spare tables and chairs from the human bar upstairs. The alcohol came from the spare supply the humans kept in the basement. Some catnip was available for a good price as well. In the midst of all this, Cat R. Waul and his posse were seated at a table, engaged in a high stakes game of poker with some cats from the Mott Street Maulers. Warren himself wasn't in attendance, having business elsewhere.Basil's American Tail - Chapter 5 by Surenity
"I hope we don't die of smoke inhalation up there." Nellie said as they looked up at the ceiling from behind a crate. Cigar smoke hung in the air.
Basil took a look at the room, figuring out where best to make it to the chandelier that hung over the table Waul was at.
"When Miss Kitty starts singing, we'll make it up that wooden beam there." Basil said, pointing to a
