Zootopian Horror Story (Part 4)
    The trail began to grow darker and darker around the fox and rabbit. A dark ominous overcast peered down at the couple through the bare tree branches and rumbles of thunder began to boom in the distance. The breeze around them began to pick up, causing both of them to squint as dust blew into their faces. They kept walking for a few more moments until they stopped dead in their tracks. 
       
    Dead in front of them stood a tall wooden gate, wrapped in old thick strands of cope covered in dry moss and grime. High above them on top of where the gate arched, a sign was presented to them, with a name engraved across it. Mammal's Temple. Beneath the name, Nick could vaguely make out a slogan that appeared to be latin. Obedite dominus. Judy whispered, frightened. "Clawhauser?" She kept her voice down as a precaution. 
    "Yep." Clawhauser replied, with a fearful sigh. "I see it." Now, it was time. Nick a

Zootopian Horror Story (Part 3)
    About a half hour had passed before Nick and Judy began approaching the shady ravine area that was nestled between the flat sprawling desert and the looming foothills and mountains that towered high ahead of them. The fox and the rabbit were growing tired of walking. Nick's feet were hurting on the hot sand and gravel, causing him to slow down once in a while. Judy on the other hand, was persistent in reaching their destination, causing her fox companion to trail behind frequently. 
    "Hold up there, Fluff." Nick said. Judy just then stopped in her tracks just as the two arrived in a shady area of the road. "I think this is it." 
    Indeed, Nick and Judy had just stopped by a clearing in the woods, in which an ominous dark dirt trail invited them to trek inside. Both of them began their walk down the trail, with the bright sun now largely blocked out by the spindly and eerie-looking trees that surrounded them. The uncertainty of their miss

    The 3:30AM alarm on Judy's phone went off beside of her, and the bunny lifted Nick's orange furry arms off of her body to reach over and turn it off. She turned back around and put her face in Nick's muzzle. "Nick." she whispered, jostling him. "Whu-?" Nick said, groggily. "Time to get up." Judy said. 
    The two stepped into uniform and quietly crept out the door of their apartment, careful not to wake their sleeping neighbors. Outside their apartment, the two held paws in the cold air. "You sure about this?" Nick asked as they walked down the street lit sidewalks. Judy exhaled. "Like I said, Nick. We don't know what we'll find there. And we can always call for backup if things really get ugly. They won't be too far off." 
    Both of the animals arrived at the ZPD station and walked down the empty halls into the meeting room, where Chief Bogo began briefing them on the mission's specifics. Both Nick and Judy were handed two sets of cl

Zootopian Horror Story (Part 1)
    The sun gently streamed in through Nick and Judy's apartment window on a Thursday morning. Both were tightly nestled away under the covers, with Nick's arm curled around Judy's small torso, with his muzzle planted between the ears on the rabbits head. Both slept soundly, with Nick giving off gentle snoring.
    The rabbit and the fox had been dating for about three weeks now, and although they still had to keep their relationship quiet due to societal attitudes towards interspecies relationships, the two really hit it off, especially since cracking the night howler case seven months earlier. Nick, by now, had completed the police academy and was now an officer alongside Judy. The fox really felt his life turn around since then and he felt like he could actually be somebody more than just a conniving fox, as many people had perceived him to be. 
    
    Suddenly, Judy's phone woke up from sleep mode and a loud alarm blared

Sly Cooper Vs. Krampus (Part 7, END)
    Murray gripped Sly's arm and helped him up off the snowy ground. "Sly! You ok, buddy?" he asked, shaking him. Sly came too and brushed the show off of his shirt. "Yeah, pal. I'm fine." 
    
    Bentley asked, "Did you get his switch?" Sly looked him in the eye and smiled. He then held up Krampus' switch in front of his friends. "Sure did, pal." The raccoon's friends all looked at the object, intrigued. 
    
    "We thought you were dude!" Murray exclaimed. "He like took off with you into the sky, and then you like, just teleported out of nowhere and fell here!" Bentley leaned forward, interested in how Sly escaped. "How exactly did you get back here, anyway?" he asked. 
    
    "Well, that giant best just threw me in his basket, so I kinda assumed it worked both ways." Sly explained, shrugging. "Guess I was right."

Sly Cooper Vs. Krampus (Part 6)
    Sly just lay there on the floor, unconscious. His head throbbed, but he finally managed to slowly open his eyes. The raccoon was disoriented and almost forgot he had been abducted. Slowly, he raised his head off the hardwood floor beneath him and noticed his blue hat resting in front of him. Sly quickly grabbed it and groggily placed it on his messy gray hair. 
    As he sat upright, he realized that he was placed in an iron cell, with weaved iron grating. The raccoon placed his hand over his eyes, shielding his face from a bright light ahead of him. It was coming from a circle of candles placed on a metal rack being hung from the ceiling. Sly realized he was in an attic of some kind- judging from the slanted dark brown ceilings and exposed rafters. 
    Panic overcame the raccoon as he frantically glanced around the cell he was in, looking for a way out. He realized his cane was missing. The next thing Sly thought to do was run toward

Sly Cooper Vs. Krampus (Part 5)
    Near the center of Grindelwald, Krampus was set free in the blinding snowstorm, but had no trouble at all performing his sinister activities. In the thickly residential confines of the village, the tudor style homes all sat in silence, fires glowing brightly in many of their windows, their residents eagerly anticipating the next morning's festivities. 
    
    Outside one home, the powdery snow began to rise in several areas, signaling that small figures were burrowing underneath. Up sprang the heads of the dark-eyed doll that had tried to strangle Sly back in the mansion. She was accompanied by the jester doll and a nutcracker doll with glowing red electronic eyes and metallic sharp teeth. Behind them emerged an arvada of similar creatures. The three of them quietly exchanged conniving grins and snickered to one another, leaving their small army to do the same. Around the corner, beside the home, the bony clawed hands of one of Kramp

    The trail began to grow darker and darker around the fox and rabbit. A dark ominous overcast peered down at the couple through the bare tree branches and rumbles of thunder began to boom in the distance. The breeze around them began to pick up, causing both of them to squint as dust blew into their faces. They kept walking for a few more moments until they stopped dead in their tracks. 
       
    Dead in front of them stood a tall wooden gate, wrapped in old thick strands of cope covered in dry moss and grime. High above them on top of where the gate arched, a sign was presented to them, with a name engraved across it. Mammal's Temple. Beneath the name, Nick could vaguely make out a slogan that appeared to be latin. Obedite dominus. Judy whispered, frightened. "Clawhauser?" She kept her voice down as a precaution. 

    "Yep." Clawhauser replied, with a fearful sigh. "I see it." Now, it was time. Nick and Judy both exchanged looks, preparing to enter. Nick, trying is best to appear natural despite his own worries, approached the tall gate and rapped his knuckles on the gate's wood, as if he and Judy arrived at a friends house for a dinner party. But upon the third knock that the fox gave, the gate slowly groaned open, like something straight out of a horror movie. 

       Nick stood still, before taking a glance back at Judy and taking a step back. "You first, carrots." he uttered, gesturing his paws towards the open gate. Judy sighed, and strutted her way past Nick, grabbing his shirt collar in the process. "Let's go." she said, dragging him inside. 

       Within seconds of the couple beginning their way down the rest of the path, they heard a loud clatter dead behind them. Both jumped in the air at the sound before whirling around, half expecting to be confronted with an assailant, their paws clasping onto their taser holsters. But all that had happened was the gate had abruptly closed. Nick and Judy were on edge by this, as there didn't seem to be enough wind for it to close so harshly. But it didn't matter in the long run. They had a mission. 

    Nick and Judy spent the next few minutes walking down the dirt trail. But it wasn't before long when Nick could make something out through the trees. He held a paw out beside him, stopping Judy in her tracks. "What is it?" she whispered, among the crickets in the background. "Houses or cabins or something. See the lights hanging over there?" the fox said, pointing a clawed orange finger through the woods. Judy saw what Nick meant. There were indeed lights, fire lanterns from the looks of it, glowing in the distance, complete with outlines of a series of small buildings. 

    Nick whispered into his microphone, "Whatever we're looking for, pretty sure we've found it." 
    After a short pause, McHorn replied in a staticky voice, "Gotcha. We see it." 
    
    Both the fox and the rabbit crept down the dirt path, which began to curve in the direction of the structures in the distance. When the couple came across a clearing in the path, they were met with a cluster of small houses , and cabins, largely made of dark brown wood. The condition of several of the buildings was dilapidated, as though a number of the buildings had undergone little maintenance over an extended period of time. Nick and Judy gaped as they came closer. 

    Wordlessly, the two walked down an alley created by the cabins, only the eerie howling of the wind surrounding them. "Uh...hello?" Judy called out, hoping for somebody, anybody, to answer. But there was no answer. Just then, as Nick was passing a cabin with a small porch, the fox noticed something out of the corner of his eye. He immediately caught a glimpse of a figure standing in the doorway of a cabin, standing behind its screen door, eyeing him motionlessly. Just as Nick lurched in the figures direction, the wooden door on the other side immediately slammed shut. Nick then gulped as he faced front again. He stepped closer to Judy. 

    "I can see the locals are friendly." he remarked, with sarcasm. 
    "Just stay calm." Judy instructed. "And act natural." 
    As Judy finished those words, she and Nick began to hear it; chanting. The melodies they heard were ominous and almost threatening, and as they listened more closely, they could hear the chants being accompanied by deep organ music. And all of it was coming just a few hundred yards from where they were standing. "Well, that's a big buffet of Hell No right there." Nick whispered. 
    
    About a half hour had passed before Nick and Judy began approaching the shady ravine area that was nestled between the flat sprawling desert and the looming foothills and mountains that towered high ahead of them. The fox and the rabbit were growing tired of walking. Nick's feet were hurting on the hot sand and gravel, causing him to slow down once in a while. Judy on the other hand, was persistent in reaching their destination, causing her fox companion to trail behind frequently. 

    "Hold up there, Fluff." Nick said. Judy just then stopped in her tracks just as the two arrived in a shady area of the road. "I think this is it." 

    Indeed, Nick and Judy had just stopped by a clearing in the woods, in which an ominous dark dirt trail invited them to trek inside. Both of them began their walk down the trail, with the bright sun now largely blocked out by the spindly and eerie-looking trees that surrounded them. The uncertainty of their mission was beginning to seep in. Two minutes into their walk, Judy looked up and saw something that sent shivers down her spine. "Nick-" she said, grabbing onto Nick's wrist. 

    The fox glanced down and Judy and noticed her awe-filled expression as she glanced upward. From the many tree branches hung a widespread network of bizarre crosses that quietly swayed back in forth in the afternoon breeze. Many of the crosses had slender bodies and jagged pointed arms, or wings. Green scum and moss clung to most of them. 

    "Ok, time to go." Nick insisted. He would have turned around back towards the direction of the trail, but Judy stopped him dead in his tracks. She angled her body camera upwards. "Clawhauser, you got this?" she whispered, pressing her hearing device further into her long ears. There was silence for a bit, before the cheetah replied back, "Yep. That's whole lotta nope there." 

    "Agreed! Let's go." Nick added in. 
    Judy spoke up. "No! We have to keep going. At least let's see the full scope of what we're dealing with here." 
    "We'll be right here, in the meantime. Try to act natural if you see anyone." McHorn instructed. "You're just two drifters looking for a place to stay." 

    Nick and Judy kept walking down the path, the sand and pebbles beneath their feet feeling cooler from not being in the sun. The path was becoming more slanted, but neither bothered to notice. Clawhauser spoke up again in both Nick and Judy's ears. "Guys, do you remember that guy who got found quartered, Morris? What could have done that to him?" 

    Judy exhaled. "Clawhauser, probably not the best thing to talk about right now." 
    Clawhauser continued. "I'm just saying, he wasn't left that far from where you guys are now. Why do you think they did that to him? Are they cannibals or something?" 
    Nick cut in. "They would only be cannibals if they were muskrats like him. With anyone else, it's just-" 
    Judy abruptly snapped, "Guys!" 
    Nick raised both his paws. "Ok, ok." he replied. 

    Up ahead, beside the path, abundant sunshine poured in, signaling a clearing. When the two arrived to the open space, they noticed another, more creepy sight. An odd grassy cemetery, filled with headstones shaped exactly like the crosses hanging overhead. "Ok, well, this just got a whole lot creepier." Nick remarked. 
    
    Judy looked up at the sky. Now, instead of bright sunshine, a strange gray haze hung overhead, and the wind began to pick up around them, loudly rustling the spindly tree branches above. A storm was probably coming. "We better keep moving." Judy said. 

    The two both resumed their way down the path. But after Nick turned his head, he thought he saw a large dark shadow move in the graveyard. But when the fox shot in the direction of the graveyard, he saw nothing. Nick gulped as he began to wonder just what he and Judy were getting themselves into.  
    The 3:30AM alarm on Judy's phone went off beside of her, and the bunny lifted Nick's orange furry arms off of her body to reach over and turn it off. She turned back around and put her face in Nick's muzzle. "Nick." she whispered, jostling him. "Whu-?" Nick said, groggily. "Time to get up." Judy said. 

    The two stepped into uniform and quietly crept out the door of their apartment, careful not to wake their sleeping neighbors. Outside their apartment, the two held paws in the cold air. "You sure about this?" Nick asked as they walked down the street lit sidewalks. Judy exhaled. "Like I said, Nick. We don't know what we'll find there. And we can always call for backup if things really get ugly. They won't be too far off." 

    Both of the animals arrived at the ZPD station and walked down the empty halls into the meeting room, where Chief Bogo began briefing them on the mission's specifics. Both Nick and Judy were handed two sets of clothes, and then two false identities, two Canyonlands -issued drivers' licenses. On Nick's ID, the name printed beside his photo was "Dylan Redford" and presented him as someone who was three years older than he actually was. Judy's ID presented her as "Jill Walker", a bunny who was two years younger than Judy's real age. 

    "How will we get into this place?" Judy asked Chief Bogo. 
   
    Chief Bogo began speaking. "You both will pose as drifters in the area and ask for lodgings for the weekend. Simply get as much intel as you can on the compound and the activities taking place there." 
    
    "Clawhauser and McHorn will be tracking your moves from the surveillance van." It was at that moment when Clawhauser and Officer McHorn, a rhinoceros each stepped into the room, with Clawhauser looking jovial. "Oh, this is so exciting!" he squeaked. McHorn remained silent as he knelt down to strap his boots on. 
     
    Chief Bogo kept speaking. "Should anything arise, the code word will be "crickets", and we'll send for backup immediately." 

    Judy nodded. "Crickets." she repeated. "Got it." 
    Nick rolled his eyes and grinned. "Ah, the memories." The fox then asked, "What else do we know about Camp Destiny, anyway? Is it a sleepaway camp or something?" 

    Chief Bogo didn't appreciate Nick's flippant remark. He growled back, "No, Wilde. We believe it's some sort of religious sect. Judging from the types of injuries we found on three of the victims, homicide concluded that it was a ritualistic killing. A sacrafice. As of right now, there's no way of knowing what goes on in there." 

    The Chief then turned around towards the easel board and snatched a hefty camping backpack off the floor, and shoved it harshly at Nick. The fox was nearly toppled over by the size of the backpack. "That's for YOU to find out." 

    Clawhauser raised his paw and broke the tension between Nick and Bogo. "We get doughnuts, right? Lots of them?" 

    Later that morning, the four policemen were on the road in a large white surveillance van that had the outward appearance of belonging to a landscaping company. A stone faced Officer McHorn sat behind the wheel, carefully eyeing the road in front of him. Clawhauser sat in the seat beside him, finishing off an extra-large box of chocolate frosted doughnuts. Nick and Judy, in the meantime, were dressed in their disguises and each carried a large backpack. The rabbit took her time in adjusting the body camera on Nick's shirt in a way that was inconspicuous but still was able to get a clear shot. Hers was already firmly planted beside her lapel. 

    With two counters containing computer monitors and other equipment, the fox and the rabbit stood close to one another, Judy feeling Nick's breath blow on her face. "You ready for this?" she asked, looking up at the fox. "As I'll ever be." Nick replied. "Maybe we'll hit this one big, you know?" 

    Judy could tell that Nick was still a bit anxious, as he did have a way of showing some bravado to hide whatever was troubling him. She wanted to hug the fox and give him some reassurance, but with Clawhauser and McHorn just feet away, it wasn't possible. 

    Finally, the van slowed down and came to a stop on the side of the road. Clawhauser looked in the rear view mirror at Nick and Judy, who had opened the rear doors. "Well, here we are guys." he said. "We'll be waiting here if you need anything." Judy and Nick both stepped out of the van. Officer McHorn yelled out to them, "And watch the body cams. Those aren't cheap." 

    "Will do!" Judy and Nick both hollered back. The two both slammed the rear doors shut and off they were down the desert road. It wasn't before long when both were now alone on the road, surrounded by blowing dust and the rustling of the desert shrubbery on both sides of the road. Over the blinding sun, Nick raised a paw up to his forehead and scanned the area around him. "Where is this place supposed to be?" he asked Judy. 

    Judy replied, "There should be a path or a road of some kind near the foothills up ahead." she said, pointing to the looming landscape in the distance. "I wish you'd pay attention, Nick." 

    Nick laughed and sputtered back, "Hey, that's DYLAN to you, JILL!" 
    "You know what I mean!" Judy snapped back, with a hint of amusement in her voice. 
    "And I'M the one who doesn't pay attention?" Nick snickered. 
    "Oh, shut up!" Judy sneered, punching Nick in the arm. "Ouch, easy there! We need that energy for spying!" 

    The two walked for a few more seconds, side by side, the afternoon sun bathing them. Nick felt Judy's paw  brush up against the vivid orange fur of his. The second time Judy's paw touches Nick's, they both held hands as they continued on their way down the road towards the foothills ahead.
