1) Episode 1 – The First Curse
Word Count: 420
The Narrator with the deep, loud and really epic voice began his mantra storytelling for the authoress’ series. Notice his deep, resolute voice. Epic! The Narrator just began straight away without the authoress’ bidding:
“Long ago and far away. Eh? We’re talking about Star Wars, right?
“There lived a town called Storybrooke, which is right in the heart of Maine, a short walk from the nearest diner. How convenient! From what we were told, Storybrooke is filled with every fairy tale and storybook character you’ve ever known. If only piñatas were more versatile. Do I hear the word ‘party’? Cue the Shire theme song…”
Various moving images of Bilbo and Frodo’s birthday party play in front of the camera. The Narrator switched topics back to Storybrooke:
“Moving on, and to our great disappointment, we have Storybrooke. It’s filled with all sorts of creatures that might want to eat you: werewolves, vampires, dragons, that imp from Starkiller Base, Jar Jar Binks, hobbits, dwarves, elves, that dude from ‘The Lord of the Rings’ (whatever!), a bunch of dead people who we don’t get to see until – oh wait, that’s spoilers WAY ahead of our current timeline. And did we mention there are angry dwarves in this town. Let’s take stock at how manly these dwarves are.
“Oh yeah. There’s an evil mayor who is punishing these people, all because she snatched a ten-year-old boy from his biological mother, who returns to Storybrooke to stop the evil mayor. But let’s not forget the one person we can all rely on. He’s been there from the beginning and runs the whole place. Meet Rumplestiltskin. He’s Mr. Gold in Storybrooke, but has quite a lot of money and all the orange juice trees stocked in his little apartment – we mean his house. Again, there’s that dude from ‘The Lord of the Rings’, who keeps running through our freeze frames. Who is this guy? Why does he look so much like Frodo Baggins? It could be an imposter.
“This fanfiction story stars Red Leather Swan, Hairy Feet Baggins, It’s Snowing Snowing Everywhere!, Flynn Rider, Dwarves are Cool!, That Elf You Know from ‘The Lord of the Rings’, The Other Greedy Elf Who We Can’t Figure Out His Name and His Faithful Sidekick, That Hobbit Dude You Will Meet Later (Trust Us! We know the Script!), Frodo’s Faithful Sidekicks and that Mysterious Guy Who We Will Not Name Names.”
