So i tried to be Snow White And did the whole pin-up girl look Red lips, black hair, white skin. then I joined a website and learnt how to cook and how to wield a rolling pin. Then I sat and waited for a charming prince who never came. So I got up and made an apple pie and lo seven guys turned up in a pinch but most of them were really lame and short and they didn't like the pie. I cried. I threw the pie into the trash where the rats choked on the apples and waited for their own true love's kiss.
(But then I needn't have worried about making a hash of things because later on the steps of an abandoned chapel, The Anti-Pest Society gave me an award for getting rid of all the rats and that's how I got work as an exterminator -which I am justifiably proud of and good at- So hasta la vista baby, I'll be back.)
Very quite different from the previous one on romance. Ha.
only the lonliest princess lived in the castle. wandering, from room to room.... but alas, no one else lived there.
sometimes, she thought she saw someone in the garden
...but convinced herself it was the wind... and stayed indoors.
only the the lonliesst gardener boy was left, to tend the gardens, overgrown, as they were.
sometimes, he thought he saw some one in the windows of the castle
...but he could never be sure... so he stayed outdoors
so the days passed.... and the lonliest people in the world lived, unknowingly, within reach of each other.
and where was the fairy-godmother...
...the one, who was meant to put these lonely souls together....
she had gone to barbados on holiday.... been hit by a falling coconut... gotten amnesia and was now making a living as waitress ...and wondering why her back was itchy all the. time... from where her wings had retracted....
the moral..... life does not always have a happy ending, stuff gets in the way... or ...don't wait for someone else to create your happiness. step outside your comfort zone and find it yourself.
Haha well okay, so I have this thing for fairy tales, and I love reading them. Sooooooooo cause I'm selfish ;) I want you guys to write a fairy tale. It can be based on something real or fake, but this is open to all interpretations, from old fairy tale cliches and writing styles, to a more modern take on it. Prose is good, but poetry is okay as well ^^ Tag it as #fairytalechallenge. Feel free to message me with questions, and to have fun with it, there are no boundaries! Good luck and have fun! :D
