The DisEnchanted Kingdom

I’ve written a fairy tale for you all. 🙂

GODS & RADICALS

Bodiam Castle

Once upon a time, an evil wizard wanted to enslave the world.

He really didn’t have any good reason to enslave people, except he was a very lazy evil wizard and didn’t want to do stuff for himself.  Also, he liked shiny things, and nice things, and liked to be comfortable.

Other evil wizards were trying to enslave the world, too, but they only managed to enslave bits of it.  A small kingdom here, a large village there, but not the entire world.  Worse, none of the wizards could hold onto their slaves for very long.  They’d keep escaping, or would throw the wizards out of towers.  And this made all the evil wizards sad, because though they were powerful, a pitchfork through the stomach really ruined their day.

      If there’s one thing Disney has taught us in recent years its that if the princess wants their happy ending, they gotta take or make their ahppy ending for themselves. I shotgun Frozen’s dress and Brave’s bow…

      Some of those giant snow giant things mightn’t go astray either…
