"Stop!" shrieked Corney as Marie raised the sacrificial blade

"You ought to use the athame with the handle in the school colours, that we bought in that shop near the Brocken!"

'Well, Rob,' said Jo, slipping the documents back into Jem's hidden safe. 'We can't deny it any longer. The San is one big cover for a fiendish plot to pump psychedelic chemicals into the water supply of the entire Tyrol. We've all been suffering one, very specific hallucination for years now.'

'What is, Joey?' asked Robin, sensing the magnitude of the revelation to come. 'Is God dead? Is the entirety of central Europe just a virtual construct inside the Matrix?'

'It's bigger than that, Rob. It goes to the core of all we thought we knew. It turns out that...that...' Joey could barely find the words. 'It turns out that all this time Marie was the prettier sister."

"You still keep up your trilingual system at the Chalet School, then?"
"Oh, yes - but these days it's alternating Mandarin, Hindu and Russian"

When the coach, carrying the Chalet School girls back from a trip, broke down on the motorway, the driver took out his mobile phone, rang his company for a replacement coach and they all got home safely that night.

:rofl: There goes a plotline or few...

In the summer of 1957, Johnny Ray's hit single 'Yes, tonight Josephine' was one of Jack Maynard's favourite songs.

"Ofsted will be doing a Deep Dive into the art department," said Miss Annersley, carefully avoiding Herr Laubach's eye, "And they will also be checking our safeguarding and risk assessment."

"We're having a strict No Under 5s policy at the pantomime this year," Nell Wilson said firmly. "I'm not having a repeat performance of Cecil Maynard screaming her head off and knocking drinks over people. One would think that parents would have the sense not to bring children of that age, but it appears that some of them do not."

An advert in The Lady:
"A widower with three children urgently requires a nanny-cum-housekeeper, accommodation with own bathroom provided, excellent salary for the right candidate."

My (unposted) drabble describes, amongst other things, a rodent problem at Glendower House. Perhaps many readers wouldn't like that. I hate mice, one intermittently plagues my bedroom! So:

The ultimate reason why pets were discontinued in the Tirol, was because Thekla had brought her pet mice in a cage. Angry at being humiliated in front of all the prefects for repeated slang use, she released two of them in the head girl's study one morning.

For once the mice could find no way out, and proceeded to gnaw things before being discovered later. Thekla got an incredible row, and had to clean lavatories for two weeks.

Going up into one of the attics at Plas Gwyn to fetch the Christmas decorations, Jo was extremely displeased to find the bag gnawed, and mouse droppings all over the floor.

She swore loudly,
and considered possible eradication methods. Then she remembered that you should be careful when cleaning up after mice, for health reasons.

That sounds like rather a good drabble.

"The Maynard triplets have asked to stay at school over the summer" Hilda confided to Nell "I'm not sure what to do".

"Well I wouldn't ask Joey for advice".

"Girls, as you know, Miss Annersley is retiring at the end of this term". Madge announced. "I am pleased to say that we have appointed a new Head. Her name is Sister Michael and she is currently Head of a girls' school in Derry."

You have to write this! Please! A Chalet/ Derry Girls crossover would be fantastic!

FROM: Richard M. Nixon, President United States of America

TO: Editorial Team, Chambers Books

DATE: 1969

It was good seeing you all at the Pentagon last week. We have considered your arguments but I'm afraid that the original decision still stands. With the closure of Project Blue book, all related endeavours are cancelled, including the Chalet series. I'm afraid that with an increasing number of people prepared to come forward with tales of alien insemination, some of the fan theories about Joey's fecundity are getting a little close to the bone. Agent Brent-Dyer as been ordered to fake her death and will return to Roswell for re-assignment.

I know that you will be disappointed that the series will never now reach the ending which successive editorial teams and US administrations have been working towards for decades. However, we do not waste things in these straitened times and that ending - huge UFO lands on top of the mountain - has been re-assigned and will be used by an emerging Hollywood film-maker, a Mr. Spielberg. I know nothing about him but he's meant to be very good. I gather, however, that he has declined the use of our preferred title, The Prefects in Council.

The secret accounts remain in use but all funds now go to my personal re-election campaign. PLease feel free to donate.

Love to Morag and the kids,

Dicky.
