"Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life - well, valuable, but small - and sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it, or because I haven't been brave? So much of what I see reminds me of something I read in a book, when shouldn't it be the other way around? I don't really want an answer. I just want to send this cosmic question out into the void. So good night, dear void." - You've Got Mail

First blog post ever! "Merry Sisters of Fate" contest entry:

** Anything creative that involves words and is inspired by the above picture "The Princess & The Pea" by Edmund Dulac **


In her first interview since the incident, the princesss shares her side of the story with our very own Suzy Scribe. She gives a first-hand account of that day and the events that lead to the pea losing its life, details from that fateful night that only she could know.

SS: Can you start by telling us what you did the day of the event in question?

P: The day was surpisingly boring...at one point I called on the Jester for entertainment. Still bored, I called on Mother. But she and I were at the end of one of our tiffs, so she wouldn't indulge me.

SS: Did you notice anything mysterious when you retired to your chambers?

P: No, not at first. The maid, Miss Rose, had laid out my favorite pajama, so I was quite eager to rest.

SS: What was the first sign you weren't alone?

P: I had just settled into bed when... (beginning to sniffle)oh my apologies, this is still so hard to speak of...I had just settled into bed when I felt something under my back...

SS: Yes...

P: I tossed and turned, thinking Miss Rose handn't quite turned down the bedding properly. After some time, I knew it was more than a crinkled sheet.

SS: Did you call for help or "investigate" this crinkeld sheet on your own?

P: Well, I knew Miss Rose didn't want to be bothered with me another night and mother was barely speaking to me; so I acted alone.

SS: What did you do then?

P: Well, I climbed out of bed and lit my bedside candle. The candle light cast the most terrifying shadows on my walls...I was so scared. But I forced my trembling hand under the mattress and that's when I felt it.

SS: Felt what exactly?

P: At first, I thought it was a ball of lint...something harmless but as I pulled the intruder from under my bed I saw the glimpses of green and gloss...(sobs)

SS: I know this is hard, but can you explain how you ended up crushing the pea in question?

P: I didn't know what to do, it all happened so fast. I didn't mean to harm the pea... I was just so frightened.

SS: So then you admit to smashing the pea with your bare fingers...?

P:...(still sobbing)... Y-yes M'am... I didn't mean to do it.

SS: Thank you for your honesty Princess; I understand this is an emotional time for you. The kingdom will do all we can but you must understand that the other peas from his pod want justice.
