Redemption, Part 3Back at Camelhot, Treguard was running his hands over the egg, his face pinched in concentration. Flame was still holding firmly onto one end, determined not to let the precious object leave her grasp. However, this ambition was decisively foiled as the egg suddenly rose up into the air and shot across the room towards the doorway, where it stuck fast against Lilys golden power shield.
Oh, my egg! Flame wailed. Whats happening to it?
The Portal of Darkness must have opened! Treguard exclaimed. Now the forces of evil will do all they can to drag the egg right into its black heart!
You must stop them! Flicker cried.
Well do all we can, Treguard nodded. Thank goodness for your golden power shield, Lily.
I dont know how long itll hold, Lily fretted. Weve got to give Mona time to work out how to
Redemption, Part 2Mona, Charley and Lily found themselves standing on one side of a large square game board, which had a series of short pathways connecting evenly spaced smaller squares, which were designed for the players to stand on. On the far side of the board, three of these squares were lighted green; the one in the middle and the two at each end. Upon the middle square stood the Dark Knight, dressed in a long black cloak and wearing a large black helmet with a small glass visor. No facial features could be seen through this and, as the Dark Knight could apparently not see his opponents, Mona deduced that the helmet must be some kind of VR device. The room was eerily lit in green and red, and smoke billowed out of the metallic game board every so often. As Mona, Charley and Lily looked appraisingly at their opponent, the Dark Knight spoke.
Move! he commanded in a deep, authoritative voice.
What do we do, Mona? Lily asked uncertainly.

Mona knew that the time of reckoning was fast approaching. It was early in the morning of Good Friday, which meant that barely forty-eight hours remained before Flames egg was due to hatch, and Fays baby was due to be born. If these happy events occurred without mishap, the fate of the world would no longer be hanging in the balance. Mona tossed and fidgeted in her bed as she turned this salient fact over and over in her mind. She thought that she would never get to sleep but, suddenly, she found herself standing in a grey stone chamber, looking up at a large transparent face on the wall. Mona knew that she was dreaming.
I know you, she said to the face. Youre the Oracle.
If you know that, you should be able to work out why I have brought you here to me, the transparent features responded in soft, silvery tones.
To give me some information abo
The Mirror of Erised, Part 3 Treguard! Mona exclaimed urgently, as she burst into the Great Hall of Knightmare. Hes back. Mogdreds back!
What?! Treguard reacted violently, as he looked up from his magic pool. Did you just say Mogdreds back?
Yes, hes in my town right now!
But how can this be? Mona, you must tell me all you know!
And so Mona explained to Treguard all about how Mogdred had brought the Mirror of Erised out of Lawrences copy of Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone, which in turn had caused Raven, Beast Boy and Terra to end up in her town. She then went on to describe their encounter with Mogdred, including all he had said about how he and Merle had managed to escape, and how he had been responsible for sending Mona and her friends to Eternia.
I see, Treguard said, calmer now. We really must tell Merlin about this. I
The Mirror of Erised, Part 2As Charley, Lily and Dottie attempted to explain matters to their trans-dimensional guests, Raven listened silently with an unwavering expression of calm on her face. Beast Boy, however, listened in obvious awe, as he demolished a large salad that Lily had bought for him.
Wow, this is way cool, Beast Boy enthused when all was told. Reminds me of that time Cyborg went to another dimension and helped this hot black chick to well, I dont actually know what they did because I wasnt really paying attention when he showed us the whole thing on his video playback system, but I do remember that the chick was hot! Raven, do you remember what
No, I dont, Raven interrupted scathingly. And I also dont consider this situation to be way cool, as you put it. Were trapped in an alternate dimension, with no obvious way of getting home.
Oh, dont worry about that,

Mona, arent you coming to bed? Fang yawned. Im finding it very hard to sleep what with all your nocturnal vigils.
I dont want to be caught napping, Fang, Mona replied. Theres an evil creature out there somewhere that wants to put a spanner in the works! Its already caught me off guard once, by sending me to Eternia. Im not going to let that happen again.
You want to let Merlin worry about that, Fang advised. Hell soon find out whats going on. Theres still a month until Easter, remember thats plenty of time to sort out this mysterious fiend, whatever it is. You need to get a good nights sleep, Mona you wont be any help to your dragon friends if youre suffering from sleep deprivation, will you?
Oh, all right,
The Eternal Battle, Part 2 Many years ago, Skeletor told Charley, Randor and I fought together, as brothers in arms. In those days, I was called Keldor. When Randor turned against me and mutilated my face, I was forced to flee from him and his mighty army. It was then that they took over the city of Eternos, and began to rule the planet unfairly and unjustly.
So what happened to you? asked Charley, no emotion showing in his voice. How did you end up here?
I was rescued by a great sorcerer named Hordak, Skeletor explained. He saved me from certain death, although he could not save my face. For this reason, Hordak gave me the name Skeletor. He left Eternia many years ago, but I have remained, fighting for so long to bring an end to King Randors rule of terror! This task has proved far from easy, however. Randor has surrounded himself with many powerful allies, the worst of whom is a superhuman warrior named

The hour was approaching eight oclock on the evening of December 31st 2004. The New Year was barely four hours away, and Mona was getting ready to set off for a small get-together to which she had been invited. Although this event was to take place several thousand miles away from her home, Mona was not overly worried about the time, for she knew a reliable short cut. She was more concerned with choosing a suitable outfit, which came as something of a surprise to Mona, as she was usually preoccupied with less trivial problems than this. However, for whatever reason, as the clock struck eight, she found herself fretting about which of her skirts she was going to wear.
What do you reckon, Fang? asked Mona, as she held up several choices for her cat to consider. Which one do you like best?
From his position curled up on the bed, Fang blinked at the array of skirts a couple of times before
Intergalactic Council, Part 3At the Hall of the Intergalactic Council in Diamond City, FXs hearing was underway. The Council members sat behind a long table, in front of which a witness stand had been set up. In the very middle of the Council members sat Zordrak, back to his smaller, purple self, with a sneer of contempt on his reptilian lips. The King of Twinkle-Twinkle had been supposed to chair the proceedings, but Zordrak had explained that the King had been unavoidably detained, and so he himself would be stepping into the breach. FX now stood quivering under Zordraks gaze, desperately pleading his case and hoping that the other Council members would listen to him.
I have explained to you, ladies and gentlemen, my reasons for helping Mona the Vampire in her adventures, and presenting her to you in a favourable light, despite this Councils instructions, FX was telling the Council members, with a slight waver in his voice. I accept that you have every right to be
