Thomas & Friends Fanfic Wiki
  • ElmoRudy55: The engines on the Island of Sodor love the summer. Sir Topham Hatt arranges lots of concerts. Music can often be heard drifting through the air. The engines do enjoy it. One morning, the engines were very excited. Alicia Botti, the famous singer, was coming to the Island of Sodor.
  • Gordon: She's a coloratura.
  • ElmoRudy55: Said Gordon importantly.
  • Thomas: What's a coloratura?
  • ElmoRudy55: Asked Thomas.
  • Gordon: It means she can sing high notes very, very loud.
  • James: Sir Topham Hatt will choose me to collect her.
  • ElmoRudy55: Boasted James.
  • James: I'm the brightest and the shiniest.
  • Gordon: Nonsense, I'm the most important.
  • ElmoRudy55: Huffed Gordon. Thomas wanted to feel important too.
  • Thomas: He might choose me.
  • ElmoRudy55: He said hopefully as Toby arrived with Henrietta.
  • Toby: What about me?
  • ElmoRudy55: Asked Toby.
  • James: (Sniffs) Well one things for sure...
  • ElmoRudy55: Said James.
  • James: He won't chose dirty Toby.
  • Toby: Don't call me "Dirty Toby".
  • ElmoRudy55: He chuffed crossly and he wheeshed away in a huff. But the next morning, Sir Topham Hatt didn't choose Gordon or James, only Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Make sure Annie and Clarabel are squeaky clean.
  • ElmoRudy55: He said.
  • Thomas: Yes sir.
  • ElmoRudy55: Said Thomas proudly. He felt very important indeed. Thomas arrived at the Washdown.
  • Thomas: Can You please Move aside, Toby.
  • ElmoRudy55: He chuffed.
  • Thomas: I'm the important engine today.
  • Toby: But I need a wash down.
  • ElmoRudy55: Groaned Toby.
  • Toby: My passengers will laugh at me.
  • Thomas: But I have to be squeaky clean.
  • ElmoRudy55: Huffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: So you'll just have to wait.
  • Toby: I can't wait!
  • ElmoRudy55: Grumped Toby.
  • Toby: I'm a guaranteed connection.
  • ElmoRudy55: And he chuffed away. Soon, Thomas was shiny and squeaky clean. He felt more important than ever. But as the workers coupled Annie and Clarabel, they heard a strange sound.
  • Mouse: (squeaks)
  • Thomas: What's that?
  • ElmoRudy55: Asked Thomas anxiously. His driver quickly oiled Annie and Clarabel's under carriage.
  • Thomas' Driver: That should take care of the bothersome squeak.
  • ElmoRudy55: He thought. On the way to the harbor, Thomas heard the squeak again. He was worried. He didn't sound like his squeaky clean squeak. Thomas squeaked noisily into the key side where Alicia Botti was waiting. Sir Topham Hatt held Clarabel's door open when...
  • Alicia Botti: It’s a mouse!
  • ElmoRudy55: Alicia Botti screamed.
  • Mouse: (squeaking)
  • Alicia Botti: (screaming)
  • ElmoRudy55: And she screamed and she screamed and she screamed. She screamed so loud and so long that windows broke all over town.
  • Thomas: Bust me boiler!
  • ElmoRudy55: Cried Thomas.
  • James: Definitely a coloratura.
  • ElmoRudy55: Said James after Alicia Botti stopped screaming. The singer was cross.
  • Alicia Botti: I’m sorry sir. I can't possibly travel in coaches riddled with mice.
  • ElmoRudy55: She said firmly. Sir Topham Hatt was very embarrassed and Thomas didn't feel important at all. Just then, Toby returned from his guaranteed connection.
  • Toby: Come On! What is it now.
  • ElmoRudy55: Asked Toby.
  • Alicia Botti: Look at the little Brown tram engine.
  • ElmoRudy55: Alicia Botti exclaimed.
  • Alicia Botti: So sweet and dirty like a proper steam engine.
  • James: What? But he's filthy.
  • ElmoRudy55: James huffed snootily.
  • Toby: I know. But I clean up nice.
  • ElmoRudy55: Smiled Toby. He was glad somebody noticed. Alicia Botti boarded ??? and Toby steamed away. He felt very proud. Later, Thomas saw Toby at the Washdown.
  • Thomas: I'm sorry I called you "Dirty Toby".
  • ElmoRudy55: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: You go first.
  • Toby: Thanks, Thomas. It feels good to be friends.
  • ElmoRudy55: Said Toby.
  • Toby: But where is your mouse?
  • Thomas: You'll see.
  • ElmoRudy55: Grinned Thomas. That night was Alicia Botti's concert. Her voice carried across half the island. Sir Topham Hatt had made the little mouse her very own home in the corner of Ffarquhar Sheds. And Thomas named her, Alicia.
  • Alicia: (squeaks)
