Partying like it's 2013... In Case You Missed It

Hey, so maybe you didn't get invited to the cool kids table last year, or maybe your memory is crap.
So in case you missed it, here is some of the awesome fairy tale goings on that, um...gone on last year. So if your family is over for Easter and driving you the special kind of crazy, tell them you have super important things to do, make your escape, and then sit back and browse and browse and browse...

 We had another Create-A-Cover challenge, and I sorta still want to write a story to go with my Wolf cover... (Insider tip: you might want to start thinking of your covers for this year... ;P )

Sophie Weeks took on the tale of The Goose Girl, and we had a little chat about those tales that just get under our skin...

 Someone made a mash-up of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries and Beauty and the Beast, and it is the BEST. THING. EVER.

and in related awesome videos-on-youtube news, we learned that Happily Ever After might not be so HEA...

I couldn't resist sharing some of my favorite fairy tale inspired songs in this modern minstrels post. And yes, many of these are still in heavy rotation on my iPod - along with some new ones, which I may just have to share...

I envisioned what a modern-day Ariel and Snow White would look like in my fairy tale look books.

We got all serious-like on you when Nafiza dropped in to talk about fairy tales and gender expression, and then Jessie stopped by to chat about queer fairy tale retellings.

* By popular request, I broke down my fairy tale recommendations for different types of readers

and talked about some of the ABSOLUTE WEIRDEST fairy tales I know of...

and we all had a good laugh, found some great tales, and got down with our bad selves.

  1. That was great! It definitely sets the mood and builds anticipating for the rest.


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
