This week's story "The Princess in the Chest" has some elements that would make for a good movie, we just wish fairy tales would account for all of their characters. WHY do these people show up?

"The Boy Who Drew Cats" is one of the only kind of whimsical stories we've done? At least it sounds whimsical at the start, but some of the goblin stuff kind of takes the wind out of those sales. This episode produced by Izzy Crimson

It's finally over, this terrible version of Beauty and the Beast. And what did we learn? Monkey butlers sound pretty cool, and those mirrors were all right. Fairies are pretty messed up.

Fairy law gets wild, you guys. Also a lot of this part of the story is just people in a foyer talking? Disney made some judicial edits, we can tell you that.

Free advice to all fairy tale authors, including the author of "The Two Travelers:" when you hit on a good theme, just stop there. Quit while you're ahead. You don't need to stretch the story another 400% to see if another one comes around.

Unlucky In Math

Our story this week, called "The Three Sisters," is continuing a very humanizing trend for ogres which has thrown us for a bit of a loop. And to make matters worse, we have to consider an atypical heroine paradigm. It's a head-scratcher, folks.
