This is an Adventures Of Blinky Bill fanfic I wrote. It's a sequel to my fic I'll Stand By You. It starts off light but gets darker and darker as the chapters pass. It has a total of 7 chapters and deals very strongly on the subject of Shifty Dingo X Nutsy. It also contains a particularly heinous Complete Monster (gotta love TVTropes) OC villain, Splodge's abusive cousin Jeromy who is a kangaroo who hates dingoes to the point where he tortures and kills them in all sorts of brutal ways. He hurts Shifty Dingo really badly in the 3rd chapter and does something even worse to Danny Dingo in the 4th so read at your own risk. Rated M for violence/gore, strong language and a mildly erotic PDA scene involving Shifty and Nutsy ear-nipping and neck-licking each other.

Shifty let out a happy sigh as he lay on the beach with Nutsy, watching the sunrise with her. "It's so quiet, so peaceful." the little dingo said, smiling at Nutsy. "Just the sounds of nature, the feeling of the sand between your toes..."

"No crazy schemes, no arguing family, no angry mother yelling at you." Nutsy finished his sentence.

"Hey, I was gonna say that." Shifty chuckled playfully.

"I know, I was just messing with you." Nutsy giggled, playfully honking Shifty on the nose.

Shifty smiled, "It's a secret I've been keeping from my family for quite some time, this spot. They all argue so much it gives me a headache and I always come here to relax."

"I know, it must be tough." Nutsy said, putting her arm around Shifty. Shifty smiled as he gazed deep into Nutsy's eyes. The koala and dingo leaned forward and kisses each other on the lips.

"If I could catch any cooties in the world, I'd wanna catch yours, Nutsy" Shifty joked.

And with that, Nutsy leapt on Shifty and started tickling him. The little dingo started laughing so hard that tears were streaming down his face. "Cooties? Say uncle, Shifty!"

"Okayokayokay...hahahahaha...Uncle! Please stop!" Shifty giggled. Nutsy stopped and Shifty let out a sigh. "I love you so much, Nutsy." Shifty said as he put his arm around her.

"Me, too" Nutsy said, kissing him on the cheek. The little dingo's blush could be seen seeping through his light blond fur. Suddenly, the two were hit by a big splash on water and heard hearty laughter.

"Blinky!" Nutsy shouted, "Now my dress is all wet!"

"Yeah, we were having a good time till you showed up!" Shifty added, glaring at the laughing koala.

"Looks like you two lovebirds are all washed up!" Blinky laughed, "If I could catch any cooties in the world, I'd wanna catch yours, Nutsy" the male koala laughed, mimicing Shifty's voice, "That's the cheesiest line I've ever heard!"

"Don't you have someplace to be, Blinky?" Nutsy asked angrily.

"Yeah, why don't you go put lit firecrackers in Miss Magpie's desk and see how long it takes for you to be expelled?" Shifty asked Blinky sarcastically.

"Expelled? As in no school? Shifty, you're a genius! I'll go get the firecrackers right away!" Blinky shouted with joy.

Shifty slapped his paw to his forehead. Apparently, Blinky didn't catch on to his sarcasm. "Oh, me and my smart mouth." he groaned.

"It's okay, I'm sure Blinky thought you were being sarcastic. I hope." Nutsy said.

"I really should watch what I say around him." Shifty replied.

The koala girl got up and stretched "Well, Shifty. I better get going. You know, I don't want Blinky to hurt himself." Nutsy said.

"Yeah. It's not like he's going to burn the school down or anything." Shifty chuckled nervously.

Nutsy kissed Shifty goodbye and headed for the koala family home.

"Blinky, I really think Shifty was being sarcastic about the firecracker thing." Nutsy tried reasoning with Blinky.

"Are you kidding? That clever dingo gave me an idea for a brilliant plan!" Blinky grinned.

"Yes, so brilliant in fact the school will go up in smoke." Nutsy said sarcastically.

"You're just jealous that Shifty thought of such a great plan." Blinky chuckled.

"Shifty didn't think of any plan, you took what he said and twisted it around in that prankster mind of yours." Nutsy said.

"Oh boy, I can't wait to see the look on her face when her desk catches fire." Blinky giggled uncontrollably.

Nutsy rolled her eyes, "Maybe you should look sarcasm up in the dictionary." she said, adding her lunch to her backpack.

"Aw, who needs reading and dictionaries? All you ever need in life is to have a good time." Blinky laughed.

"And fireworks." Nutsy replied sarcastically.

"See? That's the spirit, Nutsy!" Blinky cheered, ignoring her sarcasm just as he did with Shifty.

"Oh, me and by smart mouth." Nutsy groaned, echoing Shifty from before.

Blinky loaded the firecrackers in his backpack along with a book of matches and the two koalas walked out the door and headed to school.

Blinky and Nutsy entered the school. Luckily for Blinky, Miss Magpie was in the back room talking to Flap's parents. Blinky struck a match against the desk and lit the firecracker. "You know what, Blinky? I'm not even going to try and stop you this time. I'll just let nature take its course and hope you learn your lesson." Nutsy said.

Shifty walked into the room and noticed Blinky putting the lit firecracker into Miss Magpie's desk and his eyes widened in horror, "Blinky, are you INSANE! You could get us killed with a stunt like that! I was only kidding when-"

"Shut up, Shifty! You'll ruin the surprise." Blinky interrupted the dingo.

"Just let Blinky have his fun, Shifty. He'll learn his lesson the hard way." Nutsy said. Shifty whimpered at the thought of the school bursting into flames.

Flap, Splodge and Marcia entered. "You guys, Blinky just put a lit firework into Miss Magpie's desk!" Shifty informed them.

"Are you serious?" Flap asked. Shifty nodded and started to cry, tears dripping from his eyes "I don't want the school to burn down." the little dingo sobbed.

"Turn off the waterworks, ya big crybaby!" Marcia snapped at Shifty. "The school won't burn down. Magpie's desk will just catch fire." the mouse explained.

Shifty sniffed and wiped his eyes, "I sure hope so because I don't want to be homeschooled by Ma and Danny."

"Besides if the school catches fire, you can always put out the flames with your tears, Shifty." Flap laughed.

"Oh, that's so funny I forgot to laugh. It's almost as funny as your speech impediment." Shifty countered Flap with pure sarcasm.

"OOOOH! Flap, you just got burned by Shifty!" Marcia laughed. Flap looked speechless, he really wasn't expecting Shifty to say something like that.

Miss Magpie finally walked in and she sniffed around, she could smell smoke. She looked over to her desk and noticed smoke coming out of it. Shifty walked up to Miss Magpie and casually handed her the fire extinguisher, "Here, you might need this. It was Blinky's idea."

"This must be some sort of joke, Blinky." Miss Magpie said. The students watched anxiously as Miss Magpie sat at her desk and cautiously opened the lid. Suddenly, a bunch of fireworks shot out of Miss Magpie's desk and it burst into flames as she jumped back. The students except Nutsy and Shifty all burst into hysterical laughter. Even Splodge couldn't help but snicker. All her papers, all her class assignments, went up in smoke. Miss Magpie was absolutely FURIOUS.

"Blinky, YOU. ARE. EXPELLED!" Miss Magpie shouted.

"Good, cause I'm sick of school!" Blinky shouted.

Miss Magpie put out her burning desk with the fire extinguisher. She was so furious that the kids watched in shock and she grabbed her smouldering desk and chucked it clear across the classroom. "Children, class is out for today. I'm going to have a talk with Blinky's parents."

"Ooooh, you really messed up this time, Blinky." Flap said.

"Yeah, I've never seen Miss Magpie so mad." Splodge added.

"Relax, you guys. I'm out of boring old school for good, what is the worst that could happen to me?"

Later...

"Military school? But mom-" Blinky started.

"No buts, Blinky. This is the straw that broke the camel's back. You're going to learn real discipline this time and you're not going to like it." Blinky's mother said.

"I can't believe you would do this to your own son." Blinky said, tears forming in his eyes. "I HATE YOU, YOU NEVER LET ME HAVE ANY FUN!" Blinky screamed as he stormed off into his room in tears.

Suddenly, there was a knock at the door and Blinky's mother opened it. It was Shifty Dingo. "Hi, , is Nutsy here today?"

"She's out shopping with her father but you can see Blinky is you like." Blinky's mother said.

"Thanks, . You must be awfully cross over what happened with Blinky at school today." Shifty said.

"Oh, you have no idea, Shifty." Blinky's mother replied.

"I brought some cookies for Nutsy but I don't think Blinky would mind a couple." Shifty said.

"He's very upset right now, he just yelled at me so now may not be the best-" Blinky's mother explained.

"Oh, nonsense." Shifty interrupted, "everyone needs a cookie to cheer them back up!"

Blinky's mother sighed to herself. Maybe she was wrong about Shifty all along. He was a very sweet, but misunderstood young dingo.

Shifty knocked on Blinky's bedroom door. "GO AWAY!" Blinky sobbed.

"It's me, Shifty. I thought a couple cookies would cheer you up so-" Blinky swung open his bedroom door and glared at Shifty.

"WHAT DO YOU WANT YOU WHINY LITTLE SISSY!" Blinky shouted at the dingo. Shifty meekly handed Blinky a cookie. "I don't want your cookie, you MANGY PIECE OF TRASH!" Blinky grabbed the cookie, broke it in two and threw it on the floor. "All you ever do is cause trouble. I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU WERE EVEN BORN!"

Shifty felt his eyes burn with tears, "But Blinky, I was only joking, I didn't mean..."

"I HATE YOU! I HATE YOU! I HATE YOU SO MUCH! It's all YOUR FAULT I got EXPELLED and sent to MILITARY SCHOOL! Why don't you just CURL UP INTO A BALL AND DIE! I NEVER WANT TO SEE YOU EVER AGAIN!" And with that, Blinky slapped Shifty really hard across the face, grabbed his bag of cookies, threw them onto the floor and stomped them until they were nothing but crumbs.

Shifty closed his eyes and wept softly, tears starting to run down the side of his muzzle, "I'm so sorry I caused you so much trouble, Blinky." He whimpered softly. And with that, Shifty stormed out of the koala household sobbing uncontrollably. The dingo zipped past Nutsy and her father who were returning from the shopping trip.

Nutsy gave Blinky the most disgusted look she could possibly give someome, "I hope your happy, Blinky. I overheard the whole thing. You owe him an apology cause that was just evil."

"So?" Blinky snorted, "He deserved it."

Nutsy glared at Blinky, "You make me sick." she hissed. And with that, the female koala chased after the crying dingo.

"Kids these days." Nutsy's father chuckled.

Nutsy eventually caught up with Shifty. He was sitting at the same beach where he and Nutsy always cuddled. His little dingo frame was trembling with sobs and his cheeks and muzzle were soaked with tears. Shifty's vision was too clouded with salty tears to even notice Nutsy's presence. That was until, he could feel arms wrapping around him and pulling him into a warm embrace.

"Sssssh, everything is going to be okay, Shifty. Don't listen to Blinky, he's just being a big bully. What's important is that you're with me now and nothing could ever tear us apart." Shifty could feel Nutsy's lips kissing away the wet teardrops off his face and he gently rubbed his eyes with his paws.

"Easy for you to say, Nutsy. You don't come from a family quite like mine." Shifty chuckled darkly.

"I know, but I lost my mother and my father got amnesia. We've both been through some very tough times, you and I." Nutsy said, giving Shifty a gentle back massage.

The dingo felt chills run down his spine as Nutsy rubbed his back. Not the bad kind of chills, but the good kind. "So true, Nutsy. So true..." Shifty muttered as he wiped one last tear from his muzzle with a claw.

"We're not so different from each other, Shifty. It took me a while to figure that out but now I understand." Nutsy said.

Shifty smiled and started wagging his tail with joy, "I know what you mean, Nutsy. I know what you mean."
