'Fairy Tale' ContestFairy Tale
BestestFriendContest Group ENTRIES
Bestest Friend (DreamingAutumn) and I are back with another contest! :eager:
:bulletred: This contest's theme is 'Fairy Tale'! What does that mean? Well,  why don't you just ruminate, whilst I illuminate the possibilities...
:bulletyellow: Simply put, you write something related to "fairy tale", that could be ANYTHING. Want to write your own fairy tale? Go for it! Want to modernize or rewrite the ending for an existing tale, do it! You can even incorporate another element into it. Maybe it's a cross between Sci-Fi and Fantasy or a Mystery and Fantasy tale! Or do some combination, how about a Snow White Sci-Fi where she is the one kissing the prince awake? ;P The possibilities are endle

I can't lie. I have a soft spot for all things fairy tale related. This contest is going to be fantastic. Check it out if you have some time!

Today was a study in frustration. My husband and I dragged our butts to Barnes and Nobles to see Stan Lee. We weren't expecting much, but what we got was a complete waste of time.

The event coordinators crammed too many people in a very small space. The majority of people in the front seemed to be massively tall---which isn't really a problem, just one more annoyance stacked on top of a bunch of other annoying things.

The real problem came after Stan sat down and started talking. His interviewer was super super quiet. Stan actually noticed it, and the interviewer seemed to disagree that half the audience was having trouble hearing him. He then proceeded to ask the audience if we could hear him, and the response was a resounding "no".

So what did he do? He started talking even quieter because that is clearly the one rational response when you discover your audience can't hear you. Talk even softer so only the first few rows of people (Barnes and Noble silver members or whatever bullshit they called it) can hear and screw everyone else.

So we couldn't see Stan, and we couldn't hear half of what was being talked about. The people running the event seemed incredibly unconcerned that the sound was borked and completely unsympathetic to those who couldn't hear. What's the point of having an event if you don't care about it? Fun times.

We left early to get sushi. It didn't really help.
